Meaningful experiences for a Chicago Spirit Feeler - Edward Shanahan
To be offered to touch another person's hand, is an honor. To be able to touch
their heart, is a gift given. To be able to touch their soul, is a blessing of trust.
~ Edward Shanahan

Being a Chicago Spirit Feeler, Medium, Paranormal Host and Psychic Reader,
meaningful experiences is when I can bring closure for a person who has lost a
love one.

When I am asked to call someone at my cost, who is dying, to bring them
comfort and attempt to erase their fears. When someone brings me an item of a
love one who has passed away and I am able to confirm their thoughts on the
way they died or killed.

When I take an individual to the Miracle Child's Grave Site, as they asked me to
accompany them to pray for a miracle. When with out anyone knowing, I lay my
hands on an ill person and pray for them.

When I can open the door for someone to open their self up to sit in front of
everyone and experience the Spirit World and is one of the things I raised the bar
on my self with. There is more to me then what many see, but yet some have
seen it.

Return" ~ Edward Shanahan

Spiritual Psychometry (Conscious Channeling), at times may not be successful, but has nothing to do with the individual requesting it or the love one that has passed away.

Edward has been given the name
A Spiritual Observer

.Ed Shanahan - Chicago area


Who is he ?

Edward Shanahan has been gifted the name 'Sun Ray' by
an American Indian and her Spirit Guides do to his spiritual
connection, beliefs & abilities.

Edward along with Amy who he has named a 'Psychic Feeler'
have documented their 'Feelings' that they have felt at
paranormal locations, have been titled 'Spiritual Observers'
by the Yahoo Group members of The Unexplained World.

Edward was 1st published in 2003, in the book 'Voices From
The Chicago Graves' and again in September 2005, his
knowledge and feelings about the locations in Willow Springs,
IL; and includes The Miracle Child's grave site. Also Ashbary
Coffee House and Rico D's Pizza Ristorante are published in
the book 'Encyclopedia Of Haunted Places'

Both locations are showcased in the 2005 book also includes
Amy, as they describe what she felt at the locations.

Ed has been written about do to his 'Spiritual Observer' ways
in the publication Ghost Magazine and also a Tourist magazine
in Illinois.

Spiritual Messages he receives have been published in different
'New Age' publications and he has been written up in Newspaper
articles in his surrounding area, including The Chicago Tribune
Red Eye, Southtown Star, Orland Park Prairie Newspaper,
newspapers in Berwyn, Willow Springs, and more.

Reason for 'Spiritual Observers' name:
Edward and Amy both know spirits exist and feel it would be
an insult to the spiritual side of the spirit world and those who
have experienced it, to try and prove if spirits do or do not exist.
They pick up on the 'feelings of the spirits, energy and the
spiritual' of the paranormal locations.

Edward has taken it beyond feeling for those who have
participated in his 'Circle of Energy', it has become an
experience for those who participate.

My Circle of Energy - The experience for you.
by Edward Shanahan
Click here to read

Edward's creation that he calls a 'Circle of Energy' - has allowed him and those present at the paranormal outings to venture into the spirit realm by way of holding his version of his creation and attempting spiritual contact or experiences for those attending.

This is done at haunted locations for those seeking or attempting to experience the spirit realm at the location, be it for personal experiences or as Edward knows, that it is also a form of entertainment for some of the curious who attend.

The "Circle of Energy" has been done at night and also outside during the day at haunted locations.

In October of 2005 there was a night of back to back "Circle of Energy" demonstrations in an area of sacred Native American land, that was a night that no one will ever forget do to the spirits that responded to Edward's request to show or be felt.

2006 brought an experience during a 'Circle of Energy' Ed held
at an outdoor area during the day, when requested the spirits to show or provide a sign.

The wind started to blow hard, but as everyone experienced, it was coming from the area of the ground below them in the Forest that they were standing on.

In 2007 at the Historical Haunted House in a S.W. Suburb in
the Chicago land area ( on-going group outings are held there),
has seen Edward during his " Circle of Energy " start to channel the father / husband spirit in the room that family members of the home were waked in and some of those present experienced the Spirits in the room during the "Circle of Energy".

In 2008 - It was one haunted locations after another that
Edward has been doing his Circle of Energy at. Teaming up
with Ms. Ursula Bielski (Chicago's top Paranormal Author), in
the creation of 'Beyond The Veil' overnighters at haunted
locations like the Villisca Axe Murder House, Ashmore Estates
and others.

Type of Psychic Readings by Edward Shanahan:

He starts with doing a Palm Reading and goes as far as even telling the
individual if they are an old soul or young soul and explains the difference.

He then goes to Personal Psychometry Readings, this is when he puts
the individual's hand between both of his hands and he attempts to tap
into their energy and connect with the inner child inside the individual,
to describe the individual and what may be going on with them, including
their past, present and future. This is also best for personal answers by
way of the One on One Psychometry.

Then if individuals bring items of a loved one who has passed away,
Edward will do Spiritual Conscious Channeling / Medium work, and that
is a reading done with items of a love one who has passed away. So if you
attend a location he is doing readings at, bring items of a loved one who
has passed away with you. Edward recommends items like rings,
watches, glasses etc.. stuff that they would of wore and picked up their

Edward will also include a bit of The Masks of Tarot, using Tarot Cards
at the end of the session.

At the end of the night, if it is desired by those attending the entertaining
psychic party, Edward will provide his 'Circle of Energy Seance'.

Edward at times will venture to cemeteries for those seeking him to
do Spiritual Conscious Channeling, at a grave site of a love one who has
passed away.
