Susan has developed a series of essence formulas specifically for use with animals and people living and working in shelter, rescue, adoption, rehabilitation and other animal welfare organizations. With their gentle and profound healing vibrations from Nature, essences are uniquely suited to address the many emotional needs of animals struggling to overcome difficult backgrounds while being housed in unnatural environments or confined to the indoors. They nurture, comfort and balance animals who have an innate connection to the natural world in a way which no other modality or substance can.
The following Shining Spirits formulas help animals to release past trauma and negative experiences, accomodate to change and human intervention, and experience renewed hope, courage and optimism regarding their present and future lives. And in promoting acceptance of human attention and socialization with other animals and humans alike, essence use leads to quicker and easier placement into loving homes, or in the case of wild animals, a quicker release back to native habitats.
Shining Spirits formulas are unique in that they consist of synergistic combinations of flower, tree, gemstone, crystal, mineral, environmental, elemental and esoteric essences from all around the world. Susan designs them with an awareness of the natural environments to which the animals are attuned, and bottles each one personally with loving attention to the needs of animals awaiting loving homes or a return to their natural world, and to the needs of the people who lovingly and selflessly serve them.
As part of her mission in the world, Susan has established a nonprofit program to educate and serve animal rescue and protection agencies interested in essence use. Please see the bottom of this page for details and enrollment information.

Hope and Courage was originally designed for
animals who suffer emotionally when they must endure the effects of longterm shelter
placement and fear they may never be released to fulfill their life. Itís also useful
for wild animals living in rehabilitation situations, people or animals having difficulty
with indoor confinement, urban dwellers and anyone feeling discouragement, hopelessness,
or despair. It renews fortitude and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable
odds; restores connection to the natural world; and brings revitalization to the
energetic system, optimism to the mind, lightness to the heart, and comfort to the
Ferals in the Family formula helps feral cats to integrate more easily into domestic households. It addresses self-esteem and their sense of being "different", heals weaning and abandonment isues, alleviates genetic and karmic factors, and assists them in trusting human caretakers and adjusting to human lifestyles. It also helps them and any existing animals in the household to socialize more readily. Feral cats can become the most wonderful domestic companions, especially when taken in early in life and treated with compassion, respect and patience as they adjust to new and loving circumstances.
Feral Cat Community is for groups of feral cats who are being cared for by people without the expectation of confinement and adoption. Ideally these cats undergo trap-neuter-release protocols and are then allowed to remain free in their community and provided food and medical care on an as-needed basis. Many of these animals serve their larger communities in various ways, and will exist peacefully and beneficially if treated with respect and love from a comfortable distance. Even short-term essence use with these cats will often indicate who among them have been previously abandoned by humans and are in need of being taken in and adopted, and who would prefer living out their lives within the feral cat community. This essence formula helps cats in such communities to be more accepting of human intervention, lessens fear aggression, enhances self-esteem and awareness of purpose, supports them energetically in remaining as healthy as possible, and strengthens positive aspects of their genetic heritage while reducing inherited negative patterns.
Susan began this program to provide essences to those who need them the most but
can afford them the least.
To be eligible for the program, agencies must be operating on a nonprofit basis in the area of animal shelter, rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, or some other aspect of animal welfare. If you or your agency is interested in enrolling, or have any questions, please contact Susan directly via phone or email.
Bless you for your love and care of animals. Together we make a difference.
