DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF ALL THE TIME, NO MATTER WHAT? October 8th, 2019
Loving ourselves all the time, no matter what, takes a tender kind of devotion and courage, because to do this we have to feel all our feelings, especially those we want to push down, distract ourselves from, numb ourselves from through obsessive thinking, doing, indulging in addictions, seemingly benign and those that destroy our health, self esteem and relationships. ⠀
We humans have all kinds of ways of being and acting out to avoid being present, in love with all our messiness as well as our infinite, exquisite beauty. ⠀⠀
To love ourselves unconditionally, no matter what, is intimate, raw, deep, vulnerable and real. ⠀
So “what would it take to LOVE YOURSELF unconditionally, no matter what?” Please share!
ARE YOU CONFORMING? September 11th, 2019
Our western cultures condition and groom us to conform…
As children, we’re deeply intuitive, wise, knowing, and magical.
Too soon we’re taught to “grow up,” and our magic starts to dim.
Expectations and projections from the outside world slowly dampen our wild selves…
We’re told to “Grow up!” and badgered with “What do you want to do with your life?”
Layer by layer, our magic is cloaked over, and our confidence erodes.
We are put in a box and slowly imprisoned by cultural norms.
We are rewarded for conforming.
When we conform:
We are rewarded with love.
We are given praise.
We feel like we are “fitting in.”
We feel like we belong.
We are continually being told how we’re supposed to be and act.
And before we know it, we’re under the spell of what I call “the codependent trance.”
Block off a few hours this week to be in nature and journal about what you liked to do as a child.
What games did you love to play? Toys did you love?
What fantasies did you have about what you wanted to be “when you grew up?”
Call in and connect with your magical inner child (children).
Conjure up those feelings of innocence and pure joy.
What magical wisdom and intuitive knowing did she have that you can incorporate into your life TODAY?
If you want support with this process, send me a DM!
Thursday, August 15th, 2019 is the Full Sturgeon Moon!
The Full Sturgeon Moon is situated almost exactly midway between the Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox, for those in the Northern Hemisphere; and midway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox for those in the southern hemisphere.
This configuration on the Cosmic Seasonal Medicine Wheel imbues an even deeper potency to this full moon.
The sturgeon is among the most ancient fish, swimming back in the time of the dinosaurs. Their “medicine” carries both an aggressive, guarded quality and a softness. Its tough skin symbolizes a tendency to cloak and protect one’s true feelings, sensitivity and vulnerable, soft heart.
Because we’re also in the sun sign of cancer, a very emotional, watery sign, emotions are running high and deep for many. If you yourself are acutely sensitive notice how you may be putting up your guard to protect your inner softness and vulnerability, and blocking the intimacy and connection to life or others that you so deeply desire.
Because the full moon magnifies our emotions, it’s important to make a conscious effort to send your roots deep into the earth, breath and objectively observe the watery flow of your strong feelings while not attaching to them or “eddying out” in old emotional patterns and victim stories!
From this space of detachment, observation and awareness we can focus and lucidly dream and declare our powerful, creative intentions for the weeks leading to the Equinox Doorway.
Feel the earth beneath you, breathe deeply and observe your emotions like clouds passing by!

Have you made your new moon declarations?
I love the new moon! Such a perfect time to map out strategies for the month ahead, clear the decks and make declarations for this new moon cycle.
By planting fresh vision seeds during the new moon you are setting yourself up for success by having these powerful declarations to come back to when you’re tempted to veer off!
Visions and declarations are like anchors. A declaration is literally your “stake in the ground” that entrains you with the earth’s dreaming for you, a wild creature of the earth.
The intentional seeds you plant at the new moon gestate, blossom and grow infused with the moon’s magical increasing light. When done with honor and sacred intention your declarations are like sacred impregnations, then gestation and final birthing into fruition under the light on the full moon.
I’ve been sleeplessly ignited and inspired this summer!
I’ve been visioning and planting some extremely stretchy vision seeds for my shamanic practice and work ahead. New transmissions have been streaming in clear and strong.
I invite you to go over to my website and look at some of the exciting offers and events I’ve been dreaming and creating!
The Divine Union Within
Tropical Retreat in Costa Rica ~ April 25th – May 2nd, 2019
Awaken, Liberate & Embody Your Wild Soul!
A Transformative Shamanic Journey for Women & Men
Shamanic Programs Susan OffersSpaces are limited, so if your heart says “yes”, commit to yourself today!
Are you stuck in uncertainty right now? If so, I have the perfect medicine for you!
I feel so blessed to live in the middle of the Maine woods where I overlook this beautiful pond from my bedroom, desk and most windows in my house!
I wake up at dawn to bull frogs croaking in cadence back and forth from the lush banks of cattails, lupines and day lilies. Layered over the stirring chorus of male field crickets chirping, which is created by them rubbing their front wings together. I love that stridulating sound which opens me to angelic realms and always stirs my soul.
And then there are the dragonflies known for their amazing flight patterns; swooping, turning and twisting in vibrant reds, and iridescent greens and blues. Dragonflies are ancient beings who’ve been around for 300 million years!
When I try to wrap my mind around that my perceptions expand dramatically and life takes on a whole new depth and perspective.
Dragonflies are said to connect us to the elemental worlds. Their coloring is very significant and takes time to develop. This is part of their magical medicine, mirroring and reminding us that it takes time to mature into our true colors.
Dragonfly medicine helps us be more flexible and shift and change our course quickly when required and fly freely in surprising new directions and pathways.
The archetypal energies associated with dragonfly are about adaptability and fluidity. The iridescent colors on their wings are caused by unique cell structures that scatter and refract light, like rainbows do. It’s said that this ability to reflect and refract light and color has them associated with mysticism and magic, reminding us that we are beings of light and can reflect this in our lives in magical multifaceted ways, always reminding and teaching us to use our creative imaginations.
An ancient medicine that uplifts and helps us lighten our perspective.
Last year a female dragonfly lighted on my arm in meditation with a message that we can all magnetize great abundance through our creative gifts and liberate ourselves from collective, cultural beliefs and projections (often put on us at a very early age) of the “starving artist and creative”, that may have dampened and cloaked our light and magic.
Dragonflies remind us that we are illuminated beings of light who can reflect this in our lives in very magical powerful ways. Always reminding and teaching us to use our creative imaginations and magical ways of seeing and being, first and foremost.
In that journey with the dragonfly last summer she also transmitted the message for me and others to always remember to look for creative perspectives and ways to break through and transform our limiting beliefs and stories. And how important it is to remember that when it comes to re-narrating old stories and transforming our beliefs around lack, scarcity and money!
Dragonfly medicine can also help us break through our illusions and change old habits stemming from these.
Call on the dragonfly if you feel a need for change and a fresh perspective! A beautiful, rainbow medicine indeed.
With all the shifts and changes going on in most of our lives, this magical medicine can be wonderful to call upon to bring new perspectives, inspiration and excitement, especially if you feel a little lost and unclear
With love, light and levity,

Land and Home Clearings
Maybe it’s time to consider an energy clearing on your home or land.
Susan does energy clearing, cleaning and balancing work to shift and align the underlying energies in homes, out buildings, offices, barns, and land. There are a multitude of reasons for stuck, heavy energies to linger, no matter how many objects we move from one place to another. Her readings identify the underlying, often stuck energies, in and around spaces, that create a sense of chaos, heaviness, lifelessness, or general feeling of imbalance. The sources for disruptive, imbalanced energies in spaces, (old & new), originate from many sources, everyday influences, energies left behind by former owners or inhabitants and lack of honoring of spirits of the land, to name a few.
Susan moves, shifts, balances, and clears energies; creating a higher frequency of light; which uplifts, boosts and generally enlivens the vibration of energies throughout. Many old energetic matrices are also broken up in the process, which allows for transformation on many levels.
