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.

"Never Forget Where You Came From - To Keep You Motivated So You Never
Return" ~ Edward Shanahan

Comments from Psychic Readings / House Parties / Corporate Parties
From Sergio A. - 2012 "That ending part hit the spot Ed, as I was not even part
of the seance and you managed to get a hold of the one person who've I've lost
out of the 3 who was older than me. Not only that, but you said EXACTLY what
she always used to tell me alot over the phone. Quote, end quote. Like if it was
her telling me again. Nice to know she is close by, as I once in a while think
and wonder if she is watching or not. That one hit home".

From Janet F. - 2012 "Ed, it was another great gift that comes from the Circle
that you provide! An interesting evening, thanks again!"

From Betty E. - 2012 "Ed, I can;t tell you how much I appreciated that. Really
there was no one outside of my family that would have even guessed about what
you hit on. I also know my mom and that is what she would have referenced to
make sure i knew it came from her and not just a general reference. Thank you
so much for that"!

From Jane S. - 2012 "I want to thank you so much for doing that at the end of
the energy circle it meant a lot to me and 2 others that you would still have the
strength to be able to do what you did by giving us a message from our loved
ones that they were standing near us. I still can't get that night out of my head
I had such a wonderful time".

From Priscilla D. - 2012 "Edward, I wanted to post a THANK YOU! We had
such a good time during your visit. A lot of things were confirmed spiritually
and the windows and doors of knowledge were opend unto us. We will have to
follow up with you and update you on all of the things that have happened since
we last saw you... Which was only less than 12 hours ago! LOL ! Take care and
Thanks again :) "

From Nikol A. - 2012 "By the way..after you left. When you shook my husbands
hand, he told me it was burning him and it was red and swollen....:) I told him,
because you (husband), are not a believer... but I think you are changing his
mind. I can't wait for my mother to book her party with you. Thanks again!"

From Stacey - 2012 "Dearest Edward, I cannot thank you enough... Thank you
- Thank you for taking the time to share information from your experiences,

links you sent and have continued on to other articles & Ebooks you have
written &linked on your website. And with stories like "The Amityville Hoax",
to Not be influenced by the hype of Paranormal tales & scares.

You have definantly givin me another way to think of my experience. As I read
the article "The Shadows Within", it was all to close to my heart. I am one who
has simply always believed, Never saw a ghost. But I dont need to see them to
know they are there! Through your help and advice, Armed With more
knowledge and a better understanding of the spiritual world. I'm choosing to
appreciate this as a unique experience, and to believe, It is just that- "My

to be a Volunteer and not a Victim! Again, Thank you. You have been a
tremendous help! Sincerely, Stacey

Corporate Party - December 2010

On behalf of Two Degrees / Slalom, I'd like to thank both you and Annette for
providing such great entertainment at our event. I truly enjoyed both of your
readings and I received very positive feedback from everyone that you spoke
to. I know the music was quite loud and you had to speak rather loudly for the
evening. Hopefully, you still had a voice the next morning! Thanks again and
Happy Holidays to both of you and your families. Best regards, Ken Blanck.

From Jocelyne 2010 "Edward, I wanted to thank you again, you did such a
wonderful job on Friday night. It must have been such a long night for you.

I promise it will be a
little smaller. Take Care".

Chicago Psychic Reader Edward Shanahan

Type of Psychic Readings that Shanahan does:

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

He then goes to Personal Psychometry Readings, this is when he puts
the individuals hand between both of his hands and attempts to tap into
their energy for a reading and also the child inside the individual, to
describe the individual and what may be going on with them. 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, 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.

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

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.

Edward Shanahan's Circle Of Energy Seance

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' Edward held at
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, seen Edward during his " Circle of Energy Seance "
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
Seance ".

In 2007 Edward was happy to announce that he and Chicago's top
Paranormal author Ms. Ursula Bielski, both came together to bring
to you, unique paranormal locations and experiences with their creation
of " Beyond the Veil ".

In 2008 Edward's experience has taken him to starting in cooperation
with the Worth Historical Museum and other Historical Societies the:
'Experience - Haunted Historic Locations' and continues in to 2011.

In 2010 The Irish Legend in Willow Springs, IL becomes home to the
Chicago Paranormal Nights - with Edward Shanahan and his explore,
experience and his Circle of Energy seances at this haunted location that
once was an Al Capone operation. The Irish Legend location can also be
used for Psychic Parties.

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 Seance', it has become an experience for those who
