FAQ About the readings – what are they like?
Terms and conditions / Legal Disclaimer: You retain free will and free choice. This service is to be taken as advice, and you can decide what to do for yourself. For a landline session, you will be responsible for being on a functioning, clear Telkom landline phone (only – no cell phones or Neotel!) with questions about yourself only written out in sentence form.
If you have a serious or pressing medical condition, seek the help of a physician.

A Spirit Guide reading is an opportunity for you to ask questions of your Guides, the angelic beings who watch over you and help you on your path. A reading can give you specific, detailed, personal advice. It can help you feel loved and supported. It can help you realize that you are not alone. Each reading is unique and personalised to your needs.
You will need to write up a list of specific questions about yourself only. Please save the written list for the session – don’t send it in advance.
In these questions, you are asking for advice, so your questions could be phrased as, “Should I ….?” or “Would it be best for me to do X or Y?” or “How can I solve the problem of …?” You will receive much more than a yes or no answer.
Your Guides also want to tell you how to receive spirit guidance on your own, and this often comes through as a topic in the readings. Add it in as your last question: “How can I receive messages by myself?”
Almost never do messages come through from clients’ relatives who have died. Please don’t ask questions such as, “Does my late grandmother have a message for me?” This is not within Shannon’s gifts.
Spirit Guide messages are meant to help your soul’s growth. These messages almost never include information about what a third party is thinking or feeling (for example, “Does Person X love me?” is not answered). You can’t ask about what another person should do, even if he or she is a member of your family (for example, “Should my sister move to Johannesburg?” is not answered).
Another limitation is about the future: you have free will, and you can make your own decisions. The Guides will point you in certain directions and show you open doors, but you must choose where to go, and then consequences will happen. Don’t ask, “Will they give me a job?” Rather ask, “How can I get a job?”
Last, you have complete control over what you do with the advice you receive. People say that when they follow The Guides’ advice to the letter, the results are incredibly positive. Your results may differ, but in a Spirit Guide reading, you will hear precisely the messages you are meant to hear.
You can ask questions about things that are in your hands, that you have the opportunity to change. His karma is his karma.
Yes, Shannon does telephone readings. You’ll get to ask ten questions, though, not just one.
If you have just one question, you can call into one of her free radio shows. There are no “half-sessions” or “one question” private phone sessions at this time.
Write a list of ten specific questions, not topics like “house” or “career”. However, don’t give any background information, JUST ASK THE QUESTION. Your Guides know who you are. The session usually lasts for about 40 minutes, up to an hour.
Specific, detailed questions: “Should I take on this new project, and what should I look out for?” and “How can I improve my relationship with my manager?” Only written questions can be answered. Don’t phone with questions “in your head.” Write them down.
You can take written notes.
A reading is for one person at a time.

These policies are strict.
Re-scheduling is NOT allowed without 48 hours notice, so make sure you will be able to be at the phone or at the VIP venue. We will allow one re-scheduling if an emergency arises and you contact us with 48 hours notice. If you try to reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, or if you cancel, you will lose the fee you have deposited.
Your fee is not returned in case of cancellations or late-coming. If you answer the phone or arrive at the venue more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, it is automatically cancelled and you cannot re-schedule.
We don’t give refunds. If Shannon does a session for you, she has given you the best advice she can. If you don’t *like* your session, or you don’t like the information you’ve heard, you can decide what to do with your life, it’s your choice. But we still don’t give refunds.

In phone sessions, Shannon only works by Telkom landline, otherwise she gets migraines (whether you’re using your cell or hers or using Skype). Some people go to a friend’s house to use their landline, book out the board room, or borrow their executive supervisor’s phone for an hour.
If you are really, really stuck for a landline (and we know that they are getting rarer in South Africa every day!), you could try ‘renting an office’ for an hour from Regus.co.za – they will allow you to receive a landline call as part of the rental. Or you could go to a hotel that can receive a landline call.
Shannon also does VIP Sessions in Joburg for R6250 for one hour, or R27 500 for half a day. These sessions take place in Milpark, Johannesburg, and include ten answers plus hands-on healing. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book and we will make a special arrangement for you.
