Plant Spirit Healing
Life Stream Multidimensional
sessions for all species - animals and humans

*** Life Stream Multidimensional sessions***

This is a system Susan has developed in response to her long term inner guidance and meditation experiences, spiritual training, and course work in various modalities such as Reiki, Matrix Energetics and Plant Spirit Healing. Its purpose is to help you realize and work with the multidimensional streams of life and lifetimes that are affecting your current situation. In these interactive sessions she accesses the wisdom offered by your inner and higher or soul awareness, your guides and guardians from other realms, and her guides and intuition. Together you explore the roots of your concerns and then work to identify, catalyze and facilitate your potential for intentional change. The result is personal transformation, increased self knowledge, and enhanced alignment with your soul's desires and life purpose. Susan utilizes multiple "tools" in these sessions, which have a variety of life stream origins. These include nature based operants such as elements and elemental, devic and angelic guides, biosystems, and crystalline and other natural frequencies; principles of quantum physics such as parallel universes and time travel; collective conscious and unconscious (Animal Mundi) themes such as archetypes, animal totems, and myths. The sessions are fun and surprising while shedding light on our hidden and outdated patterns and helping us to understand our selves better and to initiate updated, more fruitful perceptions, thoughts, beliefs and actions.

*** Plant Spirit Healing ***

Plant Spirit Healing is an ancient method of working directly with the intelligence and healing powers of plants. This modality is akin to the shamanic methods used by indigenous peoples and their medicine men, though Susan does not consider herself a shaman or medicine woman; she believes we are each our own healers, and that she serves as a bridge or a conduit for the forces she is in relationship with so that they can aid her clients in their healing needs. These sessions do not involve the use of any psychotropic plants, drugs or chemicals. Through shamanic journeying with her plant allies, Susan facilitates the various plant consciousnesses in their abilities to clear, strengthen and balance the chakras and meridians; restore vital force; release imprints and entities trapped in the energy field; heal spiritual malnourishment or loss of spirit; and guide soul retrievals. Plant Spirit Healing can offer us more clarity about who we are and why we are here, catalyze our capacity to become all we can be, and activate our ability to be fully engaged in our lives while fulfilling our unique destinies. Like vibrational essences, Plant Spirit Healing addresses the roots of physical symptoms and goes beyond them to offer healing on the emotional, mental, spiritual and soul levels. Susan offers this modality to hasten, expand and deepen (not replace) the work she offers through vibrational essences, and essences are immensely useful for helping us to anchor in and stabilize the immediate shifts created by Plant Spirit Healing sessions. Thse sessions may be done either interactively over the phone, or after a preliminary discussion, Susan will conduct a private session on your behalf in her sacred healing space and discuss it with you afterward.

Both of these healing modalities access living forces and awarenesses that exist out of ordinary time and space boundaries. They are therefore as effective when done at a distance as if done in person.


If you're considering a presentation for your area or group, Susan will happily discuss it with you. Popular topics are listed at the bottom of this page.
