About Me

I'm passionate about helping people reconnect with their Soul & liberate themselves from their social conditioning. I believe all humans have the ability to heal their self-limiting beliefs, self-
sabotaging tendencies & rediscover their Soul's TRUTH; who they truly are & what their purpose is... before the world programmed them to be someone else & do something other than their authentic expression.

I've been on a personal journey of Soul Reclaiming for 10 years. A huge catalyst in my awakening was when I discovered Eckhart Tolle in grad school at age 22. I realized I was so much more than my ego/personality/ "little me" & there was a presence, a witness behind my thoughts and behaviors. Today I strive to live as this embodied presence instead of being a slave to my ego's habitual stimulus-response reactions. This, of course, is a lifetime task. I am forever growing, learning and evolving.

Due to early loss & trauma within my nuclear family, my seeking began very early in an attempt to understand human cognition, emotion & behavior. I studied Psychology in undergrad & then attained a Masters & Specialist degree in Marriage & Family Counseling. My formal education was coupled with my own personal study of religion, spirituality, energy & self-help/personal development. I also underwent my own personal "dark night of the soul" or underworld journey to face, integrate & heal my shadow selves. This is an ongoing process as well; there are always new shadows that come up as we go through life's transitions and challenges.

As a clinically trained therapist AND a spiritual seeker passionate about awakening & liberation, my Desire Map Workshops are comprehensive, deep, emotional, healing & transformative. If my words resonate with you, please check out my offerings & events. I'd be honored to explore this amazing process with you!

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Divinely connected ---> connected to the Divine in myself, other people, Nature & Source *THE ROOT*

Confidently decisive ---> when I'm strongly connected to the Divine in all things I can make decisions with clarity & ease *THE TREE*

Miraculous ---> when I make strong, clear decisions about my life grounded in divine Truth my entire life becomes Miraculous! *THE FLOWER/FRUIT*

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

I first discovered Desire Mapping in 2014 & have been using it as a transformative tool ever since. I use Danielle's Desire Map Planner (on my 3rd one now) so my CDF's are always in the front of my mind when planning my day & life!

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

One of my CDF's for over 2 years was AUTHENTIC. During that time, I made many decisions that my ego or logical brain would deem crazy, irresponsible, too bold, scary, etc. Some examples include: 1) quitting jobs (3 to be exact) because they were not truly aligned with what I KNEW my life's work could feel like 2) moving 500 miles to live with a man I'd only known 6 weeks because my Soul made it CLEAR I needed to explore our relationship further 3) birthing my 1st child naturally, in the water, with no pain medication or medical interventions at a birth center... and countless other examples that, step-by-step, brought me into closer alignment with my true Self, my Soul's authentic expression.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Inner work that is Soul-centric is so needed in this modern world! The majority of society worships the mind/intellect & has lost its deep connection to SOUL. We are severely out of balance. Desire Mapping helps recalibrate the scales. It puts the soul, intuition and the body's innate intelligence (emotion) at front & center stage. The external reflects the internal ALWAYS! Outer changes in your life (job, relationships, health, etc) will not truly transform until you do the inner healing work.

{ALIGN} Soul-based Life Design

Led By: Shanella Kelly
I see you. You've got DEEP desires & BIG dreams!

You have the plans dancing around in your head but you just can't quite find the momentum & motivation to stick with the changes long enough to create your ideal life.

I've been there. And I'm here to help.

Introducing {ALIGN} a workshop designed to dig deep, all the way to your soul, to excavate your soul's desires (your Core Desired Feelings).

The main question we answer is: HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL?

And to be clear, these are not your ego's fleeting whims or your addictive tendencies or anyplace coming from lack.

This is your authentic expression, your true state, a guidance mechanism to tell you when you're following your soul's path, in the flow, co-creating with life
