A Woman's Gift

Many times in my life, I look at the creative power of women and I realize that the feminine has such an amazing potential to cultivate and create. Women have the power to create babies, homes, food, love, and many other things. It is that creativity that needs to constantly move and change.

This can be frustrating for the masculine as men love to find peace and stillness in the activities of their life. Whereas women want to create more love, more fullness, and more aliveness.

You would think that this means that they are on opposite sides of reality. In many ways they are. But ultimately the goal is all about love and the expression of love. It is as if men are going in one direction to get to love and women are going in the opposite direction. That flow is like a circle that starts at the bottom and the two points at first seem to be moving away from each other. At at certain point those points turn back towards each other and come together to make the full circle.

How often I have heard that clients say that they feel as if they are moving away from their relationship. I try to explain that this is totally natural and part of the cycle of completion. There is always a point when you allow the other to be the fullest expression of who they are, that something changes.

All of us want to be our best self. Sometimes in relationship we want our relationship to do what we want and what we think we need. The key word there is "think". Often we actually do not know what we need deep down. It is through the reflections of others that we learn to expand the limited thoughts and patterns of our identity to evolve beyond our mind into the pure reflection of love.

I have discovered that it is my mate that has the capacity to see beyond my ego and mind into the heart of what I truly desire and yearn for.

The problem arises when my ego wants to feel as if I know better than my mate. This is a challenge especially for the Western minded feminine. In the west, women have had amazing opportunities to grow and evolve. Women now are seen as intelligent and capable. They are coming into balance with the men at jobs, work, and pay. This is a wonderful evolutionary step. With that new found power, it then becomes difficult to let that power go and trust our mate to know what our heart wants.

Deep down inside, every woman wants her mate to be able to feel into her heart. As a woman I know that often I am a mystery to myself. I want to know myself deeply but my ego and mind will not allow me into places that might create fulfillment.

This is where my mate becomes so powerful and helpful. A good mate can feel my heart and know that there is a place that I am afraid to explore. It is only through the love and trust that has been cultivated in the relationship that I am willing and able to dive deep into places that I do not know.

This is an amazing exploration into the ever expanding consciousness that is love. Love is not limited to what your perception of it is.

Love is every thing, every emotion, every experience.

You can learn to find the love by letting go of the mind's judgements and perceptions. Those perceptions are based on the past and old fears anyway. If we always took every moment as fresh and not color it with our past experiences, life would feel much more magical and loving.

The Universe gave you this experience and these emotions to discover how they are all love. Love is a kalidescope of energies and impressions. A deer is not more loving than a tiger just because it does not kill. Everything on this planet has it's place and purpose. Nature does not resist that reality. It just flows with the cycles of life and death.

Humans however, love to twist and turn with the many shades and distortions of mind. This often creates confusion and we loose the knowing and connection that everything just is. Animals are the guides that remind us to enjoy the sun and the beautiful mornings. Animals show us to purr, stretch, and enjoy bodies. But we can get so caught up in our minds that we forget that all of this is love.

So, today take a moment and feel the sun on your face, pretend to be your cat that wants to stretch in the morning light, and look at every day with fresh eyes.

About Suzanne’s new workshop, “The Opening” – Introduction to the Quadrants of Your Being

In the beginning there was only love.

When love began to expand beyond itself, it divided to light and life force.

As that exploration into duality increased, it once again divided even more fully into what we know as masculine and feminine.
This process continued dividing into more vast and complex patterns of energy creating all of life that we know on this planet. Within each of us are all these complex patterns.

You are love.

You are light and life force.

You are both masculine and feminine.

You are a mixture of archetypes that interconnect and relate to each other in the unique ways that create your individual personality.

What makes this so interesting is that none of the positions are bad. Each archetype has qualities of preference as to how they want to understand and see the world. As this process evolves and we begin to blend the first two (light and life force), with the second two (masculine and feminine), we find ourselves in quadrants or positions upon which we view our reality.

At this point, what becomes challenging is that we tend to only see the other quadrants through our perception of them, which is based on the understanding of our priorities and what we think is correct or important. But that is not always an accurate perception of those other quadrants.

Fortunately there is an unusual correction built into the system. The quadrant that is diagonal to us is often the type of person that we will become attracted to sexually. This is because we are the most disconnected to the values of this diagonal quadrant and it is only through the motivation of love that we are willing to learn and see outside of our own viewpoint.

The boxes in the quadrant that are touching us directly, we will tend to have a better understanding of because part of their base (masculine/feminine or light/life force) is something that we partially understand or have experienced.

In this workshop, I will attempt to show you the values and perceptions that are inherent in each quadrant. This will show you how to relate to people in these other quadrants and learn to find value is each quadrants unique gifts and abilities.

In this workshop you will explore your natural traits and tendencies and find which quadrant you are the most comfortable. These quadrants separate out into: Masculine Light, Feminine Light, Masculine Life Force, Feminine Life Force. Whether you are male or female does not always correspond as to which quadrant you most easily align.

I will be using media archetypes as examples to explain the different patterns. I want to say that I do not know any of these people personally; we are just using their media persona as a stepping-stone to explain these complex patterns. So, an easy example is the archetype of Michael Jackson. He falls easily into Feminine Life Force in this system. He is emotional, rhythmical, passionate, gentle, soft-spoken, loving, etc. He also had the negative traits as well. Such as drug addiction, obsessive-ness, etc.

Where as the archetype of Janet Reno, seems to fall into the category of Masculine Life Force. She is powerful in the domain of politics. She loves the battle and manipulation necessary for law and negotiation. She is forceful, tough, and unwilling to back down on her position. She will stand her ground and take on challenges that would make some men hesitate. She is a good example of Masculine Life Force even though she is a woman.

Naturally most people will fall into the category of what sex they are physically but you can find some surprises and that is what makes this workshop interesting and helps open minds to understanding the motivations and perspectives of others.
So in this workshop we will explore and learn to appreciate all of the quadrants as valuable tools for transformation of consciousness. This is an exciting workshop filled with many ways to understand others and learn to open to the gifts that each of us carries.

I hope you will join us for this journey.

Intuitive Patterns for the Months of October 2009

With October we begin another dynamic cycle of change and transformation. The question becomes, “What do we really want?”

For each of us that is a different answer. Because the question reflects where we are in our life and what we are attempting to discover and grow towards. If you are feeling trapped by circumstances, this month might feel as if that restriction is being magnified. If you are able to keep your center and not react to the stresses in your life in a ballistic way, than you can feel transformed and propelled into new places.

It is up to you. You are at choice as to how you experience your reality. I know that sounds simplistic and to most of us, when we are triggered, we fall into a victim pattern and pull ourselves down into despondency and suffering. Yet, suffering is a choice in the mind. You can choose to experience life without the mantel of suffering. Life is not trying to make you miserable or feel badly about yourself. Life is just life. Life is a chaotic flow of energy that is constantly fluctuating and showing us how to stay present in this moment. Despite what we think we know and understand about life, there is always something new to explore, learn, and integrate.

So in October, choose to let go of the old patterns of knowledge that you think are true. Stay open to new levels of awareness coming into your space and perception. Let go of the disappointments from the past and focus on gratitude for what is in your life right now. Learn to appreciate your gifts and tools that you carry within. We often do not fully appreciate our natural talents because they are easy for us. They do not seem important because they are automatic. Yet to others they can be profound.

Take a moment to tell others what you see as their gifts and talents. Ask them what they see as your gifts and talents. You might be surprised as to what you discover others see within you. Do not minimize their words. Take them to heart and know that in this moment they are true. Allow that awareness to deepen your appreciation for yourself and the being within you that is always giving a gift.

You might feel as if there are some delays this month in your life. You want things to be completed. But October is a phase of change, not completion. It is a month of unpredictable patterns and events. So keep it simple. Nurture those you love and allow your family and home to be the priority.

Globally you will see that there will be moments of mass confusion and disorganization. This causes a new dedication to the cause and a reassessing of old methods that allow for a new approach to the old problem. October is a month where all of us need to calmly focus and redirect scattered energies toward one goal. Anything worth the effort often takes more than one attempt to find its place and to take hold. Important issues that are confronting governments and countries are no different.

This is a month to focus your energies on work and home. Work becomes paramount because it brings self-satisfaction when you have a modest attitude towards your accomplishments.

Look to how you can experience gratitude and appreciation for the process of work. Learning to appreciate the simple things in life leads to happiness. We often make the mistake that our big goals and dreams are what lead to fulfillment. Unfortunately those things can be a way to feed our egos but our hearts may not feel loved and appreciated. It is the small things in life that give us great joy, such as: our mothers home cooked meal, families all sitting together playing a game, those adventures we had camping as children, telling stories of the past, etc.

See the love in your life, right now. Tell those you love how much you appreciate them. Then see the light come out of their eyes and the brilliance of their soul expand as they are finally seen as the beings of love and consciousness that they truly are. In this small way you give them hope and energy that will allow them to continue along their life’s path towards the constantly changing patterns that is their future.

Ultimately you must believe in yourself, your heart, and your ability to adapt and learn in this constantly changing equation of life. In appreciating others, you learn to appreciate yourself in new and interesting ways.

I hope you have a transformative month.

About How I Read Psychically

As much as we would love to believe all the TV shows and information that is in the public eye about psychics, no psychic is 100% accurate. Nor should you expect me to be 100% correct for every person. In my work, I bring my skills and years of experience to translate the complex patterns that are around each soul as they journey through life. If I am not able to answer a question because the situation is in flux or changing based on your current choices and patterns, I will tell you that I do not know the answer.

To my clients it often feels as if I am reading the book about your souls journey from lifetime to lifetime. I can see the past life experiences that are affecting your present reality. I can offer ways to negotiate the complex difficult times that you find yourself in and will point out what the lesson is that the universe is trying to teach you and what you might not be understanding about the messages coming into your reality. As you finally understand what the lesson is it becomes easier for the mind to let go and allow the changes to evolve your spirit.

Please note! I am not the scary psychic that will try to instill fear in order to keep you as a client. I will not tell you that your house is going to burn down if you do not do what I say. Any psychic that does that is manipulating the client and not a valid psychic. I tend to be an optimist and I attempt to see the positive in every situation. But there are moments in everyone's life when things are not going well. These are often moments for growth and karmic lessons. At these times the information that I may give you may be contrary to your present position and your ego mind will not like the suggestions. Remember, they are only suggestions. During these times it is often difficult to navigate your own space and you will feel lost and confused. My job is to point out what your gifts and talents naturally are and help you have the confidence to go in new directions that serve your highest self. You may not want to go there, as that can be very frightening to let go of your old identity and move into a completely new territory.

I had a guru of mine many years ago say that if you came up with the idea for what your true purpose and destiny is, then you need to know that your ego has chosen it. It is not your authentic self. It is tremendously difficult to see who you truly are underneath all the beliefs, pictures, and desires that you want for your life. But if someone else tells you what he or she sees as your mission or destiny, and your ego immediately say, "That is not right! I do not want or believe that I can do that!" Then that is probably the direction to look. Especially if many others have told you a slightly different version of the same thing. I know for myself that has been very true.

So, I ask each of you to take a breath and slow down when your ego mind wants to reject suggestions or when you do not believe something is actually possible. I do not need to be right. I totally respect the choices that each soul makes in their life's journey. I like to bring a fresh approach and look into areas that you may not see as your strengths or talents.

I tend to speak rather quickly, as I have a Gemini Moon in my astrological chart. I am usually attempting to get a tremendous amount of information to you during a normal hour session. Please know that you may jump in at any time and interrupt me to ask questions. Many people are so amazed by the information that they just listen for about 40, or so, minutes. About that time I will allow you to ask any questions you want. If you are wanting information about someone else specifically, it is good to let me know that at the beginning as I will tend to read you rather than another person that you know.

I am here as an intuitive and psychic to inspire each person I come in contact with to remember who they really are and to help them step on to their life’s path and destiny. A reading with me will feel as if I know your personal song and I can play that song back to you. When you hear the song, you are able to recognize it and remember. This allows you to open to the higher realms of consciousness within. Then movement and growth happen naturally.

It is also important to note that as you open or shut down to the information being given, that alters the time line. What that means is if I tell you something that you don’t want to hear, such as: your boyfriend and you are going to break up within a few months. You can resist the information and try to make my information untrue. You are, after all, a baby God learning to make choices and manifest in the physical reality. So even if a relationship is not supposed to be yours, you can hang on for dear life and become highly creative in manipulating the other person to keep them in your life. Ultimately the relationship will still fail but the time line might be later than I predicted. Negative information can also be the kick in the behind that motivates you to unravel the deeper emotional blocks and patterns that are making a relationship not work. Unfortunately it takes two to tango, so both people in the relationship have to work together to climb out of the hole. If each person is willing to change and grow then the relationship can be saved, once again changing the time line.

Timing in general as a psychic is the ultimate challenge. After I get to know a client better, I begin to understand their rhythm and flow to the shifts and changes that will happen in life. Each person has a different rhythm. I attempt to feel into your heart and flow to calculate timing for your energy. In my life I have learned that when I say to a client that something might take two months, it might actually happen in two weeks. Or the reverse can happen. So know that timing is a challenging thing and I will do my best to give you as much information as I can.

Also know that there are moments in my business when I can get overwhelmed with clients all needing something at the same time. This can make my scheduled appointments run back-to-back. So I will not have the ability to give extra time in those moments. This is often associated with astrological patterns of change. And everyone is feeling the shifts simultaneously. During these periods I am attempting to put out lots of fires all at once. Please know that I am doing my best to give my time and attention to everyone and I am not trying to rush you or be insensitive to your needs.

In my work I utilize many tools for psychic impressions to work within a reading. This gives the possibility of honing in through multiple tracking mechanisms and improves the accuracy of reading a client. If each tool brings more information to a similar subject that is a validation that something about that information is correct and needs to be paid attention to. It then allows me to go deeper and explore all the nuances of that particular pattern or issue.

Normally in a reading I use Numerology, Palmistry, Tarot cards, and Channeling abilities to read each person. If you have a preference and do not want Tarot or do not believe in Channeling, please just let me know at the beginning of your reading.

To me everything is channeling.

I use tools such as Numerology, Palmistry, and Tarot to just give me markers as to where to begin. Every person is a complex pattern of energies, emotions, and patterns. The challenge of a psychic is to know how to sort this information in a way that assists others. So when I am doing Numerology, the numbers become the beginning point for me to hone in on your patterns. What I do with Numerology you will not find in any book other than the one that I have written, Integral Numerology. But where I go from there is about channeling those numbers through your energy matrix to find how they relate personally to you and your family. The same is true with Palmistry. I use the patterns of the hand as an access doorway to feel your life force energy. I then place my third eye over the center of your hand chakra and I begin to see images and patterns as to who you are and how you move your energy.

I am clairaudient, clairsentient, and get sudden impressions or images. Even though I am not specifically a medium (someone who reads dead people) that is something that randomly happens from time to time. Unfortunately, I cannot force it to happen. It usually happens the moment you walk in my door or the dead person has been hanging around my house for that day before you get there. I often am not sure whom that dead person belongs to until you walk in the door.

Please know that Channeling and Mediumship are two different modalities. Mediumship is specifically about reading only the dead. Channeling is about talking to your guides and angels. Even thought Mediumship is not something I can get consistently, Channeling is something I have done since I was a child. I have spoken to my angels and guides my whole life. This methodology is very easy for me and I enjoy speaking to your guides and angels. If this is a modality that you love, please let me know at the beginning of a reading, as to many this is something that is scary and I will do it at the very end of a reading or not at all depending on how open you are.

In working with clients, trust and openness are important, as a reading is about intimacy and connection. Each person has the ability to block a psychic. Defensive postures and a preconceived notion about what information you want to hear can block you from really getting the deeper meanings in the information I am trying to give you.

All information is coming through my filters. It is my job to keep myself as clear as possible to be able to translate that accurately for the client. But remember, I am human. I am not an enlightened being at this time. It is possible for me to make mistakes and miss something. I do my best to meditate every day and keep myself clear and not throw my projections or issues on to your reading. So take what you hear and sit with it and allow it to assist you to grow. If it does not fit, please discard it and perhaps at a later date it will make more sense.

There are times when a client will attempt to argue with me when I tell them something that they do not want to know or accept. Later on they will come back and tell me that they didn't want me to be accurate and they tried really hard to make me wrong or to get me to change my opinion but it happened as I said anyway. It is not my job to tell you what you want to hear but to help you learn and grow through the choices and experiences you are having. My job is to warn of impending challenges and to give options that will minimize the negative effects and allow the lessons to be learned gently.

To me there is a difference between someone needing to heal and someone wanting to learn and become aware of who they are and begin to find ways to make their life a work of art.

As a psychic, I operate from the later.

When you are healing you need a gentle space and professional healers to give you the time to heal the deeper physical and emotional wounds of your life. As a psychic, I am not acting as a healer. My job is to give you information that will assist you in seeing your true self and open to situations that might be coming your way. If you are wanting me to heal you then a reading with me is not the correct modality for you. If you are looking for healing you need to go in the direction of a therapist, psychiatrist, doctor, social worker, etc. That is what they do as healing takes a tremendous amount of time. In a reading with me, we only have an hour to explore areas of your being. You cannot heal anyone deeply in that short amount of time. In an hour I can crack some doors open and allow you to see into areas that you might need to work on. But then it is up to you to continue your spiritual journey by finding those that have the skills that can allow you to slowly and gently heal the wounds of your life.

Psychic readings are about receiving insights and perspectives of your self that you cannot see or may not be using. Readings are about seeing future patterns that might come you way and give you a perspective that can help you navigate the challenging moments in your life.

Spiritual awakenings of consciousness happen when you have laid the groundwork for your soul to expand. Groundwork takes time. I have worked on pieces within myself that guru's and teachers told me about for years before I finally got a breakthrough. Many times I would go into resistance that I needed to do those pieces. When I let go and gave myself permission to try new things and look at things from other directions that is often when huge shifts of transformation happened.
