Find Life Coach | Meet Shaundas Knighton: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions That are Sabotaging Your Life?


Shaundas Knighton is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her understanding of emotions.

After going through her own journey of discovering the power of trapped emotions, she focused on deeply releasing all of those energies she kept in her own system.

After releasing over 100s of stuck emotions, she learned the art of helping other people do the same, how to free themselves from their own chains.

Now she helps people to release trapped emotional baggage from the past that may be sabotaging their life and relationships with others.

Meet Life Coach Shaundas Knighton:


Name: Shaundas Knighton
Pillar: The Heart
Who is this coach for: Anyone who wants to release stuck emotions that are sabotaging their life and liberate themselves to live the life they desire.
How they can help: Through various techniques like Emotion Code, Reiki, Dowsing, Sound Healing, just to name a few.

First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?

My family and I were lucky. My husband is a physician and spent many nights in the hospital when the pandemic began.

Our two boys survived distance learning, too. Luckily, I am a certified teacher, so they didn’t have any regressions during that time.

How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?

Since Covid, many of my sessions are done at a distance via Zoom or phone. So, I am able to work with anyone anywhere.

It is so amazing that remote clients have the same experience as clients I have seen in person.

What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?

The biggest lesson learned from the pandemic was to live each day with a loving heart in order to experience true happiness.

Happiness is sitting outside and listening to the birds sing in the morning. It’s the ability to be grateful regardless of what is happening around me.

Happiness is loving myself, my family, and all of the strangers navigating their human experiences.

Happiness is watching my children use their own energy healing techniques when they are confronted with negative emotions.

Happiness is helping another person free themselves from the emotional shackles of their past.

There is so much peace in the world. We just have to open our hearts to feel worthy enough to receive peace.

The Origin:

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?

Two years ago, I suffered from a miscarriage. I was 39 years old, recently engaged to the love of my life, and at the top of my career as a Special Education Area Director. When I found out I was pregnant, I was nervous but excited. This is exactly how life is supposed to happen, right?

Except for every night, I dreamt my ex husband was trying to kill me.

In 2015, I left a marriage that was volatile and suffocating. Life was a nightmare during my first marriage but when I left my life took a drastic turn for the better. I hadn’t seen my ex husband since the day I left his home.

I had moved on and tried to forget the horrors endured during the years prior. So, why was this man popping up in my dreams 5 years after our divorce?

One night I had a dream that I was showing off a new home to a group of people. In the back of the group were my grandfather and uncle (both deceased).

When I noticed them, I brought them to the front of the group to show them the progress of this two story mansion.

My grandfather said, “You’ve done a good job, baby, but there’s more work for you to do in this house. It’s not too much work so it won’t take you long. Just be a lil’ patient.”

Then I woke up. This was the day I miscarried. I cried for days after hearing the news. I couldn’t understand how this could happen to me when I strive to be a good person.

I spent those days in bed doom scrolling through social media. Then, as I was scrolling through my photo memories, I saw a screenshot I’d taken two years prior of a book that looked interesting.

It is titled The Energy Codes: The 7 step system to awaken your spirit, heal your body, and live your best life by Dr. Sue Morter.

I took that as a sign and ordered the book to read while grieving. I finished reading this book in two days! I couldn’t put it down. It described the Chakras and our energy body system.

Here, I had a full explanation of how emotions stored in the body can wreak havoc on your physical body. The light bulb was bright at this point.

On the outside, I had a perfect life but on the inside, I had negative emotions crowding my subconscious.

So, much of my life was dictated by my past emotions. I understood that when I was being triggered by someone or something, it was because the current situation was triggering a negative memory that caused me pain.

From there, I started learning more about energy healing and studying to become an Emotion Code Practitioner.

Through the Emotion Code, using muscle testing, we can locate and release any trapped emotion stored in your body. Not only are we able to release emotions you’ve trapped from experiences you’ve had but also generational emotions that you’ve inherited, and emotions you absorbed from a caregiver.

Since starting my healing journey, I’ve released over 150 emotions from myself!

Noticing the change in my temperament and overall well being, I began spreading the news and helping friends and family release their negative emotions, too!

Everyone had amazing results.

With a new sense of spirituality and an intense desire to help others that need to heal from the negative emotions, I became a certified Reiki Master, Chakra Healer, Tuning Fork Therapist, and Forgiveness Life Coach.

Now, I know what my grandfather was trying to tell me in that dream. There was a lot of inner work that needed to be done. I needed to learn how to truly forgive and release the negative feelings I had subconsciously held onto. My “mansion” has been repaired and I am forever grateful.

What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?

The biggest obstacle I’ve had to overcome is ME.

We don’t realize how much we have been conditioned through our interactions and experiences. I had dealt with so many disappointments and hurt that I had created this armor of “That’s just how I am”.

At the beginning of my healing journey, that armor of hurt made it difficult to commit to healing. The hurt had become a part of my identity. Who would I be if I wasn’t hurt and upset anymore?

Internally, I was still that little girl that silently suffered from bullying. I had to unlearn so much.

I had to overcome feelings of rejection, worthlessness, and insecurity. I had to unlearn the art of aggressive communication that I held onto from multiple toxic relationships. I had to unlearn the quick reaction of taking things so personally.

In the forgiveness process, the hardest person to forgive is yourself.

During my healing journey, I had to forgive myself for staying in situations when I know I needed to leave.

I also had to forgive myself for not standing up for myself when I felt I was being wronged.

Once I learned that there is freedom in releasing the past and added a little patience to the mix, the road became smoother!

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

I innovate the coaching experience with my clients by infusing energy healing into coaching sessions.

Through energy work, I am able to release trapped emotional triggers so my clients can focus on forgiveness without reliving the negative emotions associated with the person or event.

It is my passion to help others transmute their pain into positivity and purpose!

During a coaching session, I use a variety of energy healing techniques: Emotion Code, Usui, and Unitarian Reiki, Crystals, Dowsing, Tuning Fork Therapy, Tarot, and Personalized Guided Meditation.

I also offer emergency sessions for those clients who may need a quick release and a burst of positive energy.

I am currently developing a group coaching service that will include all of the services offered in one powerful package for those that are committed to diving deep into emotional healing.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

My unique approach to coaching lies in my ability to guide clients to healing their energetic and emotional selves.

During an alignment call, I consult with potential clients regarding where they believe they need to heal and create a coaching plan based on their energy reading and information collected during the call.

I approach coaching with an inside out approach.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

Clients leave knowing which emotions have been sabotaging their lives and relationships.

They understand their energy bodies and how to get the energy flowing in a positive way.

It brings me so much joy to hear that post-session clients are experiencing more clarity, feeling empowered, creative, and light on their feet!

The most important benefit is that they are able to see the world with a new set of lenses instead of through the lenses of past hurt.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?

I use a variety of energy healing techniques and tools during a coaching session.

All of the tools have proven to be beneficial: Emotion Code, Reiki, Crystals, Dowsing, Sound Healing, Journaling, Affirmations and Meditation.

The Impact:

If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?

Remember to have compassion. We are all doing the best we can with the level of awareness we have!

What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?

The greatest lesson I’ve learned is the importance of forgiveness. There is so much freedom in forgiveness.

Your final thoughts?

Feelings buried alive never die.

When we bury emotions without releasing them, we give those E zombies permission to wreak havoc on our hearts, minds, and ultimately our entire lives.

We are LOVE, ABUNDANT when we decide to heal and FORGIVE!
