Edward is a lifetime resident of Burbank, IL. In 1968 at the age of 10 while at the Ford City Shopping Mall with his mother, they both were in a New Age store back then and the store had glass display cases full of Tarot Cards, Crystals, Incense, Pendulums and much more.
There was one thing among all of the rest in the glass display cases that caught Edward's attention and his desire to own as he read the description about what it was used for. Edward asked his mother if she would buy him the 'Black Mirror' as he was drawn to it. His mother said he was not ready for it yet. That was then, today he does own a Black Mirror.
Edward Shanahan has been gifted the name 'Sun Ray' by a Native American Indian and her Spirit Guides do to his spiritual connection, beliefs & abilities. From experiencing the paranormal location and having experiences with it at the age of 16 in 1974 at Bachelor's Grove Cemetery to assisting others with spirit communication today.
Edward is an old soul and a firm believer in 'Internal Spiritual Knowledge' as he calls it, meaning spiritual knowledge is within us from the Spiritual World, as we came from there and will return to it again. He attempts to assist individuals in opening up to it with his 'Circle of Energy' spirit communication circle at paranormal active locations, house parties if communication is desired or his future workshops.
Edward's personal knowledge of his abilities manifested from one thing to another and at times he was being guided by the Spiritual World with some of the new discoveries of his abilities. That is how his Circle of Energy came about years ago on land that was once land that Native Americans lived on in Willow Springs, IL.
Healing Miracles are something he has total belief in as he has experienced it and has helped others experience it for either themselves or their love ones. Edward has been written about in a book and also the Southtown Star Newspaper do to his experience with healing miracles and he believes in and has done hands on healing also. The healing comes from the Spiritual World, as the healer / individual is a conduit for the energy being passed on to the one seeking the healing or prayers for healing.
Edward is not one for the teacher that tries to push 'this is how you are supposed to do it' when it comes to any type of class. He never went to a class to learn the 'proper' way of doing what he does. He had very old soul individuals that did guide him and where there for answers and to discuss what he was experiencing in his personal discovery of his Internal Spiritual Knowledge.
Edward is a Spiritual and Intuitive Coach and has always felt that what works for one individual, is what works for that individual and that specific way that one does it, should not be pushed on to others as the only way it should be done. The fact is that we are all different, the best teachers he feels are those who are willing to guide an individual in their search to discover what Spiritual Knowledge and abilities are inside the individual. That is how he plans to do his workshops in the future, assisting the individuals in discovering what works for them.
He is certified in both Law of Attraction and as a Life Coach with Global Sciences Foundation and also in Pendulum Programming to assist individuals in seeking a change and to better their self.

Meaningful experiences by 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.
