Love is stronger than death.

"There is no death. Only a change of worlds."

“Love Beyond Life” is a short phrase that perhaps best describes the experiences grounding the professional practices that team this psychotherapist and psychic medium who are also husband and wife. Graham and Shannon Maxey are dedicated to letting after-death communication help people experience that love is the reality of our existence, and that losing the physical presence of those we love does not signal the end of our relationship with them.

After-death communication is usually an experience that happens spontaneously. It happens to millions of people every year, and the ones who will share their encounters report them as being a source of enormous comfort and healing. Using mediumship and a particular therapeutic technique, Shannon and Graham bring the benefits of ADC to their clients with the same results.

Shannon Maxey, psychic medium Connecting You with Your Loved Ones in Spirit

For Shannon, being a psychic medium is all about helping people heal their grief and resolve unfinished, often difficult, issues with their loved ones in spirit. Shannon uses her abilities to deliver messages from people in spirit.

A note from Shannon

I will respect your beliefs.
You don’t have to be a believer for me to be able to connect with your loved ones.

Discernments (mediumship readings) can often be a great help in healing grief; However, they are not a substitute for grieving. It doesn't have to take years. And it’s been said before "time heals nothing, it’s what you do with the time that heals". Our loved ones in spirit want to help us resolve our grief. I've been a witness to this my entire life.
I won’t be reading you, I’ll be listening to your loved ones in spirit.
I won't withhold anything I'm told or see. I wouldn't want someone else deciding for me what I should and shouldn’t hear.
I’ll do all I can to answer your questions about the process and how I work. I want you to understand as much as you can. I believe it will only help you have the best results and experience possible.

What I don't do.
I don't do predictive readings. If someone on the other side says something about a future event then of course, I'll tell you. Historically, some people seek out mediums for advise on a variety of topics. In my experience, people on the other side tell us to "live our lives fully, with compassion and without fear". They say, "No matter how long you are here in this life, it is too short to do anything else". 

My ethics.
I have a high success rate of connecting with the person or persons my clients want to hear from. However, no ethical medium can guarantee the specific person their client wants to hear from will show up. So I offer what I call "the 15 minute option". If within the first 15 minutes of your discernment, you don't feel that I am accurate, connecting, helpful, you've decided this isn't for you, or any reason, you can stop our session, with no charge and certainly no hard feelings. If I'm not able to connect with your loved one/s in spirit, I'll let you know right away. I'll still try for the whole 15 minutes. I feel I owe it to you and to your loved ones in spirit. If I'm connecting but you are not understanding or recognizing the messages in the first 15 minutes, I'll stop the session.  I never want to go for an hour and a client not understand the messages. That wouldn't be helpful or useful. To date, in the seven plus years I've offered discernments publicly, I've stopped 5 discernments. 
I don't let people come back to hear from the same person a second time. I want people to develop and trust their own connection with their loved ones in spirit. Most of my clients report having an ADC after they have had a discernment with me. I believe having the experience of the connection and confirmation is what helps people recognize subsequent ADC's.

We'll make sure I'm the right medium for you.
I truly love what I do, but I'm not for everyone. If you are considering a discernment because you think it would be fun or you're "just curious",  I understand your desire, but I'm not the right medium for you.

After thirty years as a professional counseling people who are grieving, I can say without a doubt that grief is a paradox. It is the way we heal from loss, but it is sometimes so painful that we won’t do it. Too often people are told that the object of grieving is to “put the past behind you,” which may seem to put them in the intolerable position having to “go on” without their loved one, as if that person didn’t matter any more. To ever actually lose the feeling of emptiness or even despair would seem to sever them from the last visceral contact they had with the person they lost—a contact they still treasure. In that situation people often won’t complete their grieving because the pain seems sacred to them. It signifies that the deceased is still with them in the suffering they experience.
Sometimes the opposite occurs. People choose not to complete their grief and simply put it away, turning to other things, staying busy, distracted, or addicted because the thought of actually resolving it appears to mean that they would have to expose themselves to a pain that would never go away.
Not grieving fully and successfully means that part of people’s energy, their vitality, has been locked up in keeping the hurt alive, or keeping it at bay. Part of them is always engaged in trying to hold themselves together because they are not whole any more. This is energy that is needed in order to live fully.
But, what if grief can be a transition from one form of relationship to another? What if people could look forward to a time in their lives when they could interact with their loved ones in a new way after those love ones have passed? What IADC® therapy shows people is that grief is not only healing, it is instrumental in getting to the place where they can experience reconnection with the people they love.
IADC® is not hypnosis, nor is it “mystical” in any way. It uses, in a particular way, a psychophysiological therapeutic technique that has been used and researched for many years. It first helps people progress through the feelings of grief at an accelerated rate, even if those feelings have been buried or overlooked for a long time. Then, when the sadness is dealt with sufficiently, they are able to notice within themselves what is there—contact with the people they love and thought they had lost.
The reconnection with loved ones after that is not confined to the therapist’s office. Once the technique is established, clients can, and are encouraged to, go home and have on-going experiences with their people on the other side. Often, this has seemed to help people have spontaneous ADC’s.
The after-death communication is at once the motive to complete the grieving process, and the first of many benefits for doing so. If people can grieve successfully they can be whole again, and being whole, the world looks like a brand new place. It is a place where they once again have access to the people they have loved so much—both the living, and those who have died.
