The Ascending Initiates Welcome You with Love

See us and get to know us.

Our Higher Selves have stepped forward in service to humanity.


We are some of the Initiates of the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Initiations as defined by the Ascended Masters through Alpha Imaging.

As Initiates, our Higher Selves are stepping forward in service to humanity. This is their time to shine their light out across humanity.

We are each on our own personalized path of ascension. The Ascended Masters support each Initiate through the 6th initiation, at which time the Ascended Masters stand back and allow each Initiate’s Higher Self to come forward. Most of those you will meet here are now vehicles for their Higher Selves. 

As you learn more about us, you will understand that we are just normal people and no pedestal is needed.


As we ascend and our karma is cleared, our light shines brighter. As an Initiate passes the 5th Initiation, they have no karma let and they are attaining a state of unconditional love.  We bring this light and love to our healing practices, our creations and our services. We strive for all that we do to be of the highest possible vibration.

A healing from an Initiate will be some of the best you can receive.

I offer custom portraits of your Higher Self, which include a channeled written message. These portraits can be created using either oils or pastels. When I paint, I do meditate beforehand and typically will get a vision of the image, but mainly it’s more like automatic writing. The information comes through my hands and is also given to me as a knowing of when it is correct, when something needs to be changed and when it is complete.
There is an approximate three to four month turnaround time on the oils, and is variable based upon the individual portrait. This is partly because they take at least three weeks to be dry enough to ship after completion. Also, the oils tend to come forward in layers. I believe the layers are needed for the person’s perception, even if these layers are then painted over.

The pastels typically are completed within two to three weeks. Again, the pastels often come through in layers as well, although not to the extent of the oils.

My belief is that once someone is given a tangible, physical representation of who they are, it awakens something within, and they can more easily grow toward that vision. By seeing it physically, it becomes more real.


About Shannon Guest

It was probably 30 years ago that I embarked on my spiritual journey in earnest. Finding a group in New York that taught esoteric teachings was my first step. I’ve always been a seeker, with a passion for the mysteries. I’m not sure how long it’s been since randomly finding the Alpha Imaging site. Things always seem to simply appear on my path. I’ve had every healing done that they offer! I have always felt a resonance there.

The paintings began about 20 years ago, after three people in a row suggested that I offer guardian angel portraits. It sounds odd I know, but I was already painting angels and fairies, as well as painting portraits for family and friends. In particular, there was one woman, whose best friend had passed suddenly. Long story, but as it turned out I had unknowingly painted her best friend in two separate paintings and painted one on the same morning she died and the other the day after. She walked in to my booth at an art show and recognized them immediately. In those days I kept records of what I was working on and when, so when I looked, I realized the timing was exact. This girl was so adamant that I make this attempt to paint guardian angels and hounded me until finally I did try it, if only to get her off my back! I sat down, said a prayer that if this was real, let me paint something that she would recognize, then just started painting. I struggled to get a one word message. When she came in to look at it, her eyes filled up with tears and she began to tell me the messages that she recognized within the painting. With that confirmation I felt that this was authentic enough to continue. I so enjoy seeing what comes forward with every piece of art and the challenge of recreating what I see and feel in my vision.

My Higher Self’s name is Ean and, being a new 6th initiate, at last check he was at 8%. I am sitting with him every day and learning how to connect with him more and more.

Much love,


The art Shannon lets flow through her is phenomenal-no less than a Blessed Miracle in our opinion.

You are blessed with a gift and you should share it with the world as you’re an amazing artist!! I was blessed with your gift that is the centerpiece of my living room. It is a beautiful piece which I will have and keep forever!!!!

You had painted a beautiful portrait for my friend Robbin, which was a blessing for her in many ways with everything she has been through.

And you have touched my heart from the first painting you had brought into the bank for my mother Sandy, to give to me in 2012.

That was a true sign for me. I never realized it at the time, how important it would become 6yrs later when I met Robbin. And how much the second portrait you did for me, March of 2021 really resonated with everything going on in my life and beyond.

The Healing Paths

Start your journey with the Initiates through a Healing Path

We are ascending, supported by the Ascended Masters and their portal through Alpha Imaging.


You may wonder “What is the meaning of life?” The answer is to ascend. We are created in love and we will eventually return to our source as perfected beings of Light. The path is personalised and unique, but the process is ascension.
