Hi, I'm Chelsey and I am an artist. I have worked in various disciplines in the arts for over 20 years (from performance to producing) & each experience has been fulfilling in a different way. When I began consulting with arts professionals in 2014, I noticed something. Meetings turned into deep dives, creative brainstorming and empowerment sessions. These connections lit me up. I felt a profound spark of my own creative expression! It was a rediscovery of the gifts I have to give and I asked myself: How can I help others feel this way? How can I be of service?
Then, I found Reiki (or I should say, Reiki found me). At a pivotal point during the pandemic when we were all going within, I began the practice of Reiki. Reiki came into my life for a reason. It allows you to self-heal, self-discover and self-direct your life. It can reveal your deepest knowing & creative light by moving energy.
I slowly began to weave together my arts background, my consulting work and my Reiki energy work (plus certification as a Life Coach). All of this led me to create Chelsey Shannon Creative Care LLC. I have noticed patterns in how I show up to be of service: seeing the brightest light in others, encouraging them to embrace their creative gifts, and motivating them to follow their unique path. I am honored to help you discover the most authentic creative expression of YOU, unleash it to the world and align with who you truly are on this planet. It's time to allow your inner light to shine!
