Sunny Dawn Johnston’s Biography – 
(Last Updated February 2018)

Sunny Dawn Johnston is a world-renowned inspirational speaker, spiritual teacher, and psychic medium. She’s the author of twenty books, including her two flagship bestsellers, Invoking the Archangels and The Love Never Ends, which have become the cornerstones for many of her keynote topics such as intuition, mediumship, and the angelic realm.

Sunny’s community of devoted clients and students expands the globe, and through her courses, private sessions, and live events, Sunny has touched the lives of thousands, both online and in-person.  Her clients best know Sunny for her infinite, unconditional love and lack of judgment as she prides herself on always coming from a place of integrity, both in life and in her work.

Sunny helps people connect with their heart and release the things that hold them back from being their greatest version of themselves. Combining the unconditional love of a mother and the tell-it-like-it-is honesty of a best friend, Sunny helps people move into a higher vibration of living … and a higher vibration of Being. Using her spiritual and intuitive gifts, she shines a light on the areas of lack, fear, insecurity and sometimes … B***S***!  Sunny feels strongly that at the heart of these issues is a lack of Self-Love. By reflecting the true nature of her clients back to them – which IS Love – they can experience, and then allow in that unconditional love, and begin to heal themselves.

Sunny’s latest endeavor, SDJ Productions, has expanded her beyond writing and speaking events and into publishing and producing. Her latest projects include two multi-author compilations, 365 Days of Angel Prayers and 111 Morning Meditations, with many more in the works.

In her spare time, Sunny is actively involved in the spiritual community and volunteers as a psychic investigator for the international organization FIND ME. This is a not-for-profit organization of Psychic, Investigative, and Canine Search & Rescue (SAR) volunteers working together to provide leads to law enforcement and families of missing persons and homicide.

Sunny resides in Glendale, Arizona surrounded by a loving family and close friends. She believes in maintaining a healthy mix of work and play and encourages harmony in all areas of life.

To learn more about Sunny’s work, please visit her website at and connect with her in her private Facebook group, Sunny Dawn Johnston’s Community.

Additionally, Sunny invites you to join her virtual community Soul Food with Sunny, a membership site where you’ll gain access to her 18 years of teachings, including her online courses and all her best content.

Class Descriptions

Angel 101
A 6-week class focusing on connecting with your angels through manifestation, intention, judgment, discernment, and releasing fears! We will do exercises that will teach you how to understand the guidance you receive and how to listen to the loving messages you receive daily from spirit. This class will help you become more aware of the gifts that we all have within us and help you to find your own personal truth.

Angel Card Readings Class
Learn how Angel Cards can help you communicate with your Angels and receive guidance for healing many aspects of your life. I will demonstrate particular angel card “spreads” dealing with healing, abundance, and life purpose. Some participants may choose to volunteer for an Angel Reading by me during demonstrations for the entire class.

Communicating with your Angels
The Angels will pick a different topic each week for me to share with you. Some class topics might be:

  • Divine Guidance – How do your Angels communicate with you?
  • Manifestation – Learn how to create what you want in your life with the help of your Angels.
  • The Archangels – Learn how to use the Archangels in your everyday life to help you with anything from parking places to jobs to relationships and even dis-ease.
  • Chakras – Learn how to listen to your body by asking for guidance from your Angels.
  • Automatic Writing – Communicate with your angels through automatic writing

“Get Out of the Box” Class
This class is guided by spirit. You are in a loving and supportive environment as you learn to step out of the areas that are “uncomfortably comfortable”. These “comfort” places are often your safety net. They can stop your growth process in a number of different areas and often times hold yourself back from “owning” who you really are and allowing all that you desire to manifest into your life. This class will provide you with steps in creating self-awareness, boundaries, clear communication and self-esteem. If you are ready to own the saying “Your opinion of me is none of my business” and are really ready to be free to be you, let’s begin. This class is only for those willing to step out of the box!

Connecting with YOUR Spirit!!!
Sunny leads you on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Through her own inspirational life story, Sunny will teach you how to embrace your current situation, empower your inner being and move from the fear you have been experiencing to the joy that is your birthright!

Finding the True You! – Who Are You and Why Are You Here?
Sunny Dawn Johnston, Psychic Medium and Spiritual Teacher, will lead you on a journey of self-discovery, healing and unconditional love. Through a series of meditations, visualizations and live music from soul musician Kris Voelker, Sunny will re-awaken the part of you that knows the truth of who you are.

Embracing the Body That Is 
Working with women of all shapes and sizes for many years has taught me that you can be any size and hate your body, and you can be any size and accept your body. You can also be any size and be vulnerable to the judgments made about you based on your body’s appearance. As a teenager growing up 60 + pounds more than “average”, I have had many of my own body image issues to deal with. Through years and years of healing, learning, understanding, growing … and finally accepting, I have learned to love the skin I live in. It has been a hard road at times; yet, there has been so much value in the experiences. I am grateful for my body and I appreciate it daily. Now, my body hears gratitude and appreciation, and it responds to me in a loving away.

Intuitive/Psychic Development Workshop
‘Psyche’ means mind. We all have a mind; therefore, we are all psychic! In these classes we will focus on developing those inherent gifts that you were born with. Learn how to use the gift of discernment to create a life that flows. Understand energy and the role it plays in your life. Develop the daily patterns that lead to a higher consciousness and sense of enlightenment. Develop a stronger understanding of manifestation and desire vs. dream. Get in touch with your angels and spirit guides. Learn how to improve a bad relationship simply by shifting your own energy and thoughts. Understand the laws of the universe and the correct ways to use them. In this class Sunny will teach you how to develop your intuitive skills and learn to be open and willing to trust yourself, your guidance and your intuition. We will do many experiential exercises to develop your spiritual gifts and will cover many forms of intuitive development. This class will help you to be aware of the messages spirit is communicating with you and discern their true meaning! It is said that we are given 1000 messages a day from the spirit world. How many do you receive????

Group Spiritual Counseling/Gallery Readings

Are you feeling frustrated, disconnected, or do you need a stronger support system? Well you are not alone. Join Sunny for an evening of Group Spiritual Counseling. Sunny has been guided to create this group experience to offer you, the Sunlight Community, the opportunity to regain your connectedness and feel the unconditional love and support from those around you. Sunny will give direction and support as guided to each person. This will be like having a one-on-one session with Sunny except you will have the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences as well. This group experience will allow you to have the understanding that you are not alone and give you tools to help you move forward, in this moment! We encourage you to open your heart and listen to your spirit which is asking you to connect with like minds and come together during challenging times.

Think Positive & Create What You Desire
As a gentle and supportive spiritual teacher and psychic medium, Sunny Dawn Johnston has helped thousands of people across the country find their personal spiritual connection, learn to listen within to their own inner truth and recognize and own their natural spiritual gifts. Join Sunny Dawn Johnston to learn how to focus your energy and mind on creating the life you want.

Officiating Life’s Ceremonies/Officiating Weddings and Funerals
This class will offer you specific direction as to how to write a ceremony, what points to cover, what the legal needs are, what questions to ask, what to do during a ceremony, and what to charge for your services. Learn about traditional and non-traditional ceremonies, and how to fulfill the dreams of those participating, by truly listening to their needs. You will also receive a Book of Ceremonies and ideas currently used by Sunny. The book is included in the cost of the class.

Mediumship Class
Would you like to learn more about how to connect with the Spirit World? Have you had an experience that you do not quite understand? Have you felt deceased loved ones around you but are not sure who they are? This is a hands-on workshop that will teach you how to discern deceased loved ones, how to know their familial relationship, and how to tune in to the energies around you. You will have a lot of time to practice with classmates who will help you validate those experiences you have been having but haven’t been trusting completely. This class is for anyone who feels guided to come. Beginners through advanced students welcome.

Psychic Investigations
This class is for those who are interested in the psychic detective world and in developing their awareness and skills of mediumship. The loss of a loved one can be one of the greatest challenges in life. As a psychic detective Sunny will share with you the tools she uses to work “real” cases, bringing closure to families of missing loved ones. Learning to connect with the spirit world can be a life changing experience. Together, Mediumship and Psychic detectives offer clues to provide many tools and insight to help people come to terms with the loss of a loved one in a more positive way.

A Soul’s Transition – A Journey Through the Circle of Life and Death 
Have you ever wondered why some of us leave without any warning or what holds us here when we are waiting to transition into spirit? Have you ever wondered what the final stages of life may look like or where your soul really goes once it leaves its body? Do you question if those who have gone before us can truly play a part in our everyday life? Are you curious about the stages of transition from the physical to the spiritual? Sunny will explore the final stage of a soul’s physical existence: covering expected deaths, suicides and sudden deaths, as well as explore the actual transition stage and what happens when a soul leaves the body. Then we will learn how we can make our deceased loved ones a part of our daily physical lives. We all have loved ones who have crossed over and eventually we will do the same … this is a great opportunity to understand and perhaps feel more comfortable with the circle of life … birth – death – rebirth. If you have lost someone recently, are in the process of having a family member transition or feel a need to understand more about the transition process …. this class will be very informative and healing for you. In this class, you will walk through a journey that we will all face one day.
