Community Highlights: Meet Shawngela Pierce of Seek Within You

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shawngela Pierce.

Hi Shawngela, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Shawngela Pierce and I work as a spiritual healer in Sedona. I help seekers heal by learning to embrace their spiritual power and connect to the divine. I feel blessed to be doing this work because it is needed in a world where you can easily fall between the cracks of modern medicine.

To understand why I feel this way, let me tell you a bit about my journey which began in my search for health and well-being.

As an undergraduate at Purdue, I was diagnosed with asthma. Over the years my symptoms worsened and I also developed extreme chemical sensitivities. The traditional approach to asthma treats this as a chronic condition, with only an inhaler and steroids as ‘treatment.’ Basically, as I aged my condition would continue to worsen. I was told there was no cure.

I knew in my soul that this was not correct and so I started searching. I was eventually led to a Naturopathic doctor, who helped me start the healing process. At the time I was in Naturopathic medical school and began to see that if I had gone to another physician, they would have treated me differently.

I began to realize that getting medical help was way too complicated. Why were there so many choices? Why would the divine make things so complicated? As I began to ask the questions, I began to get guidance from within and was led to some books that really opened my eyes.

As I continued to listen to the divine, my mission became clear. I needed to teach people how to quiet their egos and get guidance from within. You can heal from past wounds, you can heal from chronic conditions, you can feel emotionally supported, you can feel peace, you can live your life mission, and more.

There is not one answer for everyone but there is an answer for you if you surrender to the divine.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. There have been many times when I wanted to quit and give up but I knew I could never truly do that. I knew that once my eyes had been opened to the “spiritual realm”, there was no way I would ever be able to accept the conventional wisdom regarding health and quite frankly, most other things.

The most challenging part has been learning how to surrender. It may sound easy, and I am sure that the divine is laughing because, from their point of view, it is. However, from the human perspective, our modern society has taught us to be logical and scientific. As a result, learning to truly surrender to the unknown has required a lot of divine support. There have been many tears shed as I have peeled away the layers of who I thought I was to start expressing my true divine nature.

As you know, we’re big fans of Seek Within You. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Seek Within You is my spiritually-centered business where I help individuals embrace their spiritual power to heal.

Our major focus at Seek Within You is our women’s retreats and private retreats in Sedona, AZ as well as Mt. Shasta, CA.

At Seek Within You, I work with individuals, mostly women, who feel desperate for change, overburdened, depressed, have some type of chronic condition, or feel drawn to a life mission. These individuals are feeling a call to do something more with their lives but are at a loss on taking the next step. They are awakening spiritually but are confused about how to live a more spiritually-centered life.

The individuals I work with do not necessarily resonate with traditional religious ideology but feel a strong connection to the divine – God, Angels, the Almighty, Spiritual Guides, Gaia, etc.

In a nutshell, my service involves empowering individuals to be open to divine guidance. It is not about having all the answers for them. It is about teaching them how to get it from within.

For instance, at our retreats, we do a spiritual healing session, where I help people to quiet their minds, and allow.

When you allow, you open to feeling the presence of the divine. Words cannot express how this feels but many of my clients say they feel a shift in their perspective of the divine. They feel more confident in asking questions and allowing the answers to come to them. They feel more grounded and less anxious. They feel they are loved and supported.

I love how the retreat is just the starting point. We also offer additional distance healing, workshops, and coaching so they can continue developing the divine relationship when they return home. This is key since most do not have the spiritual tools in place, such as daily meditation/prayer, to handle continued work with the divine.

I feel Seek Within You is special because my work – both written and spoken – comes from my spiritual team, whom I affectionately call IAM.

Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs, or other resources you think our readers should check out?
One of my favorite books is Conversations with God, Book 1 by Neale Donald Walsh. It has helped to inspire me in my life mission of helping others.
