What if you had immediate access to your guidance…

…your higher self, your spirit guides, and any other messengers who can help you navigate your life with more ease…

But you run into:

  • Too much “woo”
  • Conspiracy theories
  • Escapism and toxic positivity
  • No practical application to your life
  • Told you have to “just believe”
  • Meditations and exercises that don’t work

I’m Sheyna Galyan and this is Soul Guides™, where I write and teach about all things guides and guidance, especially for people dealing with things like anxiety, depression, ADHD, chronic pain, or the effects of trauma. You’ll get practical applications without excess woo, and plenty of snarky arguments with guides without being told you just have to believe.

Are you ready to engage with your Soul Guides without all the BS?

Talking with Dresden About Ukraine

resden, I need help,” I said to my primary guide after having lunch with a dear friend. “Talk to me.” “I’m overwhelmed and scared and discouraged, bordering on powerless. I’m on the verge of tears but this isn’t even about me.” “What isn’t about...

How is coaching different from therapy?

While I am a formal mental health counselor and have been trained in various forms of psychotherapy, I am not a licensed therapist and I do not practice therapy.

Here’s how I see the difference:

A therapist helps a person heal their present by addressing what led them to this point (e.g.: trauma, core beliefs, emotional avoidance, etc.). Especially in clinical settings, it requires a “problem/ solution with measurable progress” paradigm. It is the surgery of the psyche, going after the root of the issue.

A coach helps a person change their present by addressing their thoughts, beliefs, and actions in the present moment and moving forward. It can operate as both problem/solution and also support/ celebration/accountability. This is the physical therapy of the psyche.

A healer helps a person change their present by addressing their energetic and physical health in the moment and moving forward. This is the medicine of the psyche.

While there are some overlaps, they largely have their own areas of focus.

When I’m coaching, we honor the past and acknowledge that it has an impact, sometimes profound. But we don’t go digging for it. We don’t go back to the past to try to heal it. That’s for therapy, which I usually recommend be trauma-informed.

Do I have to come to your office for coaching?

No. I do all of my coaching via Zoom for several reasons.

  1. You get to be in an environment you choose, that is safe and familiar.
  2. You can live anywhere in the world (as long as you have wifi) and work with me.
  3. You can choose to have your sessions recorded (viewable only by you and me), which you can then download and watch or listen to later. That way you don’t need to take any notes and can be fully present for our sessions.

For further questions, please see the work with me page or ask during our illumination call.

Do I have to believe in God/Source/Universe to work with you?

No. I have worked with Atheists, Pagans, Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, and quite a few Agnostics, among others. While we will help you develop your connection to your intuition and guides as a part of your work with me, it’s not my intention nor the intention of your guides to change your beliefs about any sort of higher power.

How much do you charge for coaching? / Do you take credit cards?

I begin with a package of four weekly, one-hour sessions for USD $1,000. Some people only need that. Some need longer. I prefer not to do single sessions because it generally doesn’t support my clients.

You might be able to connect with a guide in an hour, but building a relationship and then using that to reach your goals, use your voice, step into your full being, and reclaim your power takes longer.

The work I do is highly customized to you and your goals, so I can’t tell you how long it will take for you. We’ll talk more about your goals and a timeline on an illumination call.

I accept all major credit cards and PayPal. I do not accept cash or check. (You can pay by e-check via PayPal.) I do accept payment plans. Payment (or the first payment) must be received before our first call. I do not issue refunds for calls you’ve already had, and your calls must be used by you and cannot be transferred to another person. You may, however, purchase a gift certificate.

Where can I get your books?

You can get up to three books at a time (autographed, even!) here in my shop.

You can also purchase them at your favorite bookseller or online.

For resellers or bulk orders, my books are distributed to the trade by Itasca Books and can be ordered directly from Itasca or from your favorite supplier.

Can I get autographed copies of your books?

Yes! You can get them right here in my shop!

Can I book you to speak at our event?

Yes! Please submit a proposal using my contact form.

Do you have a refund or replacement policy?

Yes. You can read my policy on paper books and ebooks here.

For Soul Guides coaching, there are no refunds on sessions already used. Should you need to cancel unused session, and cannot or do not wish to reschedule them, any advance payment for those sessions will be refunded to you within seven (7) days of notifying me of your cancellation in writing (email, text message). The refund may be initiated within a day or two, but it could take up to the full seven (7) days for financial institutions to process that refund and have it show up in your account.

You can connect with me here (and here and here...)
