Our Free Will Impact
to Present and Future
October 24, 2021
Shelly will discuss the importance of Free Will and how we each choose how much or how little we want to work on our lessons in each lifetime. Free Will also impacts the future trajectory of our soul path and Shelly will share examples of how and why this occurs.
Join us for an interesting discussion about souls, Spirit Guides, soul evolution, and future lives.
Shelly lives on the east side of the island near Mountain View where she and her husband are snowbirds. They spend summers in Reno with family.

Designing Human Destiny by the Stories We Tell
October 31, 2021
“Carefully watch your thoughts, for they become your words. Manage and watch your words, for they will become your actions. Consider and judge your actions, for they have become your habits. Acknowledge and watch your habits, for they shall become your values. Understand and embrace your values, for they become your destiny.” Mahatma Gandhi
Every religion and culture is based on a collection of stories that help us understand who we are and how we fit into the cosmos. We mostly inherit these stories from our ancestors through words and actions. Our world-view is also influenced by other environmental conditions of wealth, security, privilege and power. These stories are acted out in our daily lives and we conspire such that they become our destiny, both personally and collectively, often unconsciously.
As an advocate for social justice and former civil rights attorney turned mermaid, I’m inspired to explore our choice to become conscious storytellers and thereby choose our destiny rather than feeling like victims of circumstance.
I believe that the stories we tell socially engineer humanity’s future on this planet whether we conspire consciously or not. So, let’s envision the most inspiring future and choose to internalize the stories that most align with that vision.
I envision a future where we value our feminine as much as our masculine,
Where everyone is free to become their most authentic self and bring their unique gifts to fulfillment.
Where generosity is valued more than power hoarding;
Where cooperation is valued more than domination;
Where safety and respect are the norm rather than violence,
Where we experience more freedom than fear;
Where restorative justice is our focus rather than punishment or revenge;
Where innovation is encouraged rather than rigidity;
Where wisdom is cultivated rather than folly;
Where all life is revered rather than survival of a special few;
Where sustainable symbiotic connection is our goal rather than “progress”;
Where humility is valued more than perfection;
Where transparency is valued more than defensiveness;
Where quality is valued more than quantity;
Where diversity is celebrated rather than just “one right way”;
Where play is valued as much as work;
Where possibility is limitless rather than win/lose dualistic thinking;
Where our stories are consciously chosen rather than unconsciously inherited;
Where our spiritual aspect is valued as much as the physical, emotional and mental.
What do you envision?
We will explore how our stories drive American culture today producing certain results in our lives and in the collective. We will see what is “working” and for whom. We will explore alternative storylines to intentionally create the results we prefer by becoming more conscious designers of our own destiny.

Shelly Pierson is a certified Past Life and Between Life Regression Therapist working with clients wherever she lives and travels. After a 30 year career in the Information Technology industry in the public/private sectors as well as academia, a series of events guided Shelly on a journey to her current calling of helping people through Regression Therapy. Who would have thought visiting the past could heal the present? Working with clients through private sessions, speaking engagements, and workshops, Shelly has helped many people gain clarity, awareness, and answers about their present lives by visiting the past.
Shelly was formally trained as a Regression Therapist through the Raven Heart Center in Colorado by Dr. Linda Backman. The journey to facilitate this work has allowed Shelly to learn much about her own past lives and heal many of the blocks that her soul memory brought forward to her current life.
In a past talk at the NTCH Shelly discussed the importance of the challenges we have in our lives since this is the means by which our souls learn the lessons we signed up for.
