“This has lead to my expansion.”

I just wanted to say a huge massive thank you to you Ellie for taking the time to talk to me and to work through a difficult event that happened years ago. I have just, for the first time in 18 years, seen the situation completely differently, by talking things through with you in a different light. It's now been possible for me to discover my blindspot and to release myself from what I have been carrying around for half of my life. I instantly felt lighter and more grounded and actually feel my back is somehow freer (not that I had a bad back per se, but I think I had been carrying around a lot of tension around my vertebrae). I can't tell you how incredibly grateful I am to you that you took the time to explain things in an entirely different way to me. The best thing ever to hear is: This speaks to your power to create. This happened to demonstrate my power, not my weakness. This has led to my expansion and I will continue to expand and become what I am. Thank you a million times over. Am now listening to all your podcast episodes. Love love love.

“I am forever grateful.”

If I can stop being completely silly for a brief moment, Ellie Shoja, more than anyone else I can think of, has been responsible for expanding my life.  I am, and will be, forever grateful to her.

“The world can benefit.”

I've been to therapy, read books, talked people's ears off, but nothing has ever resonated with me as much as Ellie's teachings... The whole world can benefit from her forgiveness workshop.

“Explains in a way that resonates.”

I’ve known Ellie for over 20 years and have benefited from her wisdom and guidance the entire time.  It’s been amazing to watch her honing in on her connection with the inner being and being able to explain it in a way that resonates.  Through her teachings, I’ve been able to put myself on a path to reaching my potential and connecting with my humanness.  I am grateful to have met her and the world is a better place because she in it.

“Hard to put into words.”

Ellie's gives off an energy that is hard to put into words. You feel soothed by her presence and also aware that there's a loving, non-judgmental entity before you that you should connect with. Her spiritual teachings have helped me prevent the walls around my heart from immediately closing up just because I've been hurt. Her guided meditations leave me feeling more connected with myself, with the universe, and with the collective spirit of us all. I'm extremely grateful to have experienced all that she has to offer.

“Profound awareness.”

As someone who has struggled with chronic depression, I've taken many approaches to healing. Working with Ellie has brought greater healing into my life than all of those other paths combined. Her perspective and profound awareness has allowed me to truly understand the cycles and patterns I've created that have held me hostage, and the insight how to set myself free and live a life of purpose and peace.

What you have shared has also changed my daughter's life... she's gone from no energy, depressed with an eating disorder to healing to Europe - today actually! - to live the life she's chosen.

“Embodies love and peace.”

Ellie is a natural. She is so spiritually in-tuned and embodies love and peace in everything she does.  I've had the privilege of getting to know her over the last year and attend her mediation dinners and it has been such a blessing in my life at a time when I really needed it.  I encourage you to read her writings and moreover attend her classes and retreats.  I'm certain Ellie will enrich your life and give you new perspective as she did for me.  She is a true inspiration.

"Ellie has a gift."

Ellie is gifted with discernment. But she doesn't just keep this gift to herself, she chooses to use her gift to assist others in any area they may be struggling, whether they even realize they are struggling or not! She helps everyone from close friends to complete strangers. She has helped me throughout the time I have known her and I continue to gain from her wisdom and caring.

“Conveys deep thoughts with simple language.”

Ellie Shoja has a natural gift to convey deep introspective thought with simple language and metaphors so that one clearly understands her meaning as it relates to one's life.  Ellie has communicated words to me that I have used as tools to understand myself and my relationships with others.  I continue to use these tools and visualization from my talks with Ellie to evolve myself and find contentment with who I am. I give a lot of thanks to Ellie.  

— Paul Martinez

“Ability to connect.”

“Truly understands the nature of peace.”

I’ve had the honor of knowing Ellie for over 20 years, and the energy that she gives off is unlike anything else. She has the ability to connect with people on a spiritual level, which is such a beautiful thing. I am looking forward to her continued insights and everything that PEACE UNLEASHED has to offer.

— Jennifer Y.

Ellie is someone who truly understands the nature of inner peace - she not only conveys it beautifully and artistically in her meditations, but lives it on a daily basis.

“Ellie lives what she speaks.”

I met Ellie perhaps in an unconventional manner. She was speaking on a panel discussion at a conference last Fall and I was struck by how inspiring her words were. I was so moved by her words that I reached out to the moderator to ask for Ellie's email address so I could tell her just how much her thoughts and insights had touched me. Thus ensued a wonderful 2 day email exchange where we discussed the importance of encouragement. Then Ellie invited me to a meditation dinner party and I was immediately welcomed into a wonderful new group of friends. Ellie lives what she speaks of. She wrestles like the rest of us with major life questions and listening to her testimony on how she came to find answers to massive questions is so inspiring to me. I have often spoken of her as an example of how to surrender truly to what your life purpose is. One thing that she said that I often think of is: "if it feels like you're struggling against the current in a boat, let go of the oars and the boat will right itself and set you off in the right direction." I am in the process of doing just that, with that image so strongly in my mind to inspire and encourage me. I am so grateful our paths have crossed and look forward to many other pearls of wisdom. Thank you!
