"Amara is simply wonderful. She provided me with insight and guidance to a very serious situation I was facing with my grandson and daughter. I'm incredibly thankful for her abilities and know that she is guided by love."  ---- Sandy B.


Amara created this consultation for those who are in need of intuitive services that are based around one primary question. Many choose this unique and helpful service when they are:


  • Stuck between decisions.

  • Embarking on a new endeavor.

  • Looking for ways to create more harmonious relationships.

  • Feeling helpless and stagnant.

  • Need insight and guidance about a life situation.

  • Ready for change and are unsure of the next step(s).

  • Making decisions to align with their highest purpose.

  • Finding ways to heal from suffering and despair.

  • Needing relief from inner confusion.

  • Blazing a path to a better life.

  • Looking for a new perspective to work through an old situation that keeps resurfacing. 

Amara uses shamanic journeying (learn more about shamanic journeying HERE) and an oracle deck she designed for this purpose to find the answer that supports you and is in alignment with your highest good. 

How to Phrase Your Question

It is important to choose the wording of your question clearly so that energetically the correct information comes forward. For ethical purposes, the question can only be about YOU. Without each person's specific permission, Amara cannot ethically access information about another individual. For example, let's look at these two questions that have ethical issues:

"What does my brother need to change to
better communicate with me."

"Why does my partner have
difficulty dealing with anger?"


These questions need to be rephrased from the point of view only as it involves you because we can only be responsible for the changes *we* can personally make in any given situation. It is always easier for us to change the way *we* approach situations than to have expectations that another person will change their behavior. If we rewrite the above two questions, this is how they would look: 

"What do I need to do to better
communicate with my brother."

"How can I help my partner deal with
his/her anger problems."

Subtle wording can change a question and answer, so follow these guidelines when phrasing your question:

  • Begin your question with who, what, where, why, or how.

  • Avoid "when" questions, as these types of questions are more prophesy-related and future outcomes can change quickly, especially when they involve others who have free will to make choices and changes in their lives that may affect you. 

  • "Who" can be tricky, so if you must ask with using this word, consider "who" as possible characteristics of a person:

    • Example: Who should I date? (where you're looking for a name) versus ...

    • "Who is the type of person I should date? (where you are looking for characteristics).

  • Avoid "yes" or "no" questions because your consultation gives you the opportunity to receive a deeper, richer answer beyond a simple yes/no response.

  • Avoid "will I" or "should I" because these are other forms of asking yes/no questions and you want the opportunity to receive a deeper, richer answer than this wording offers.

Examples of Good Question Wording​​

  • What do I need to know to be fully present for this event/meeting/relationship?

  • What can I do to improve my marriage?

  • What do I need to let go of to help me co-exist with my coworkers more peacefully?

  • What is this situation teaching me?

  • What changes can I make in my life to lessen the chance of my illness reoccurring? 

  • What do I need to learn from this experience?

  • How can I best help my brother with his transition?

  • Why do I seem to always be taken advantage of by others?

  • How can I help my friend adjust to the difficulties she's facing with her child?

  • How can I let go of this problem or challenge?

  • What do I need to know to achieve balance and peace in my life?

  • How can I strengthen my relationship with my creator?

  • Why do I keep getting passed over for a job promotion?

Be Thorough

Shamanic journeying messages usually come in the form of metaphors that the journeyer deciphers for the inquirer. It helps when asking a question to have a little bit of the back story so the metaphors make more sense in the context of your question. If you ask: "What is happening in my relationship right now?" You may get a brief statement: "It started out smoothly but now there's a rough patch." If you ask a question with context: "My partner is thinking of leaving our relationship because he/she has another love interest -- what is my best plan of action" then the shamanic journey will make sense in the context of the deeper, more informed question and the metaphor visuals will be clearer with an action plan. 

Timeframe for Email Consultation

Email consultation responses are usually provided within 24-48 hours (two business days, not counting weekends) which allows Amara time to shamanic journey and write an email response. If Amara is teaching a workshop during the timeframe of your request, her assistant will let you know there will be a slight delay. 

Session Rates

Three sliding scale rates are offered for sessions because we believe spiritual services should be accessible for everyone. Please choose the rate that is reasonable for your budget. Those who are able to pay the higher rate make it possible for those who need to pay less to receive the gifts of spiritual services. Please click HERE to see a full listing of services and rates.

Please Note

Shamanic practices are spiritual in nature. They do not interfere with any medical treatments an individual may be following under a doctor’s care and are in no way intended to take the place of a doctor’s care. Shamanic treatments are seen as a complementary aid to an individual’s physical and mental well-being. Amara is not a physician, therefore, does not diagnose or treat medical injuries or illness nor prescribe any medications.
