"Suzanne, I absolutely love you and what you do to encourage us and remind us of our infinite wisdom and strength. You truly hold the space for us to grow." - R.S.
"I went to see Suzanne because I felt as if I were trudging through life, like a draft horse. I was meeting obligations and even working towards some important long-term goals, but I didn't feel full of life on a day-to-day basis. I was worried that I may never reclaim a sense of fullness and vigor again. I also sensed I needed more balance, more peace.
In my meetings with Suzanne, I came to realize that I was doing a lot to get in my own way. I would tell myself why I couldn't have what the healthy part of me was craving. Or, if I couldn't see how to get there in advance, with a well-crafted plan, I wouldn't even try.
Now I do things very differently. I pay attention to that 'felt sense' of what I need, want, and feel drawn to. This is more of an introspective process, less of living according to others' standards and expectations. This is also a process of discernment. It can take some time, reflection, and consultation to truly come to articulate the felt sense. And when I'm clearer with myself, I go about simply intending to move towards what I discerned. Often I have no idea how I'm going to get there. This is new, too, this comfort and faith that I can realize my intentions without a linear, logical plan in advance--like a meandering stream finding its way to the river. And like a stream joining a river, though much of the work is introspective and at times solitary, ultimately it is about being connected to something larger. Ultimately it is about finding our place in the family of things. After working with Suzanne for some time, and feeling more like a horse running free than that draft horse, I came across the following quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, which sums it up pretty well:
'If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.' " - SDS, Ph.D
"Thank you for helping me create a life that I absolutely LOVE! Never even knew I wasn't happy. My life is an adventure every day now and I know that it's Divine Openings and you that helped me learn to create my own happiness. You are the gift that keeps on giving." - Mary D.
“I’m so glad I met you. My life has changed tremendously. I think I’m happier now than I’ve ever been in my life, thanks to you and Divine Openings and Lola.” - Sue H.
"Thank you so much for our session last night – you have the most beautiful voice! It’s so gentle and loving, like Grace is speaking through you. The session really helped me." - Sally King, UK
"I am reaping such wonderful benefits from the Power of Intention class. Thank you for being who you came here to be so that the rest of us can learn from you and do the same." - C.B.
"Many thanks - that was such a great class!! Honestly, Suzanne, I don't know anyone who can get to the essence of such profound topics, and lead us there with such intelligence and compassion. Divine Openings finally gave me the tools to survive the emotions and this class gave me an even greater appreciation of their role as cues. The power of asking yourself the right questions is amazing." - L.B.
"Your talk was so very, very good. It is obvious that you’ve grown exponentially. Such absolute brilliance and creativity, such fine presentation style. All that talent just bursting out, you had the entire room in love with you. I remain in awe. Please catch us in your wake and take us with you. You are a gift." - M.B.
"Our work together was an important part of my transition from employee to entrepreneur. It provided me with powerful support and insight that I would not have found on my my own." - Jill R.
"I just had to write. You have no idea how healing your article in Living.Well Magazine is to me, or maybe you do. To know that we are worthy just because we're here says more than you know to me. I get it at a deep and profound level. Your writings help to restore those feelings of self worth in me." - P.F.
"I really want to thank you for helping me take myself and my creativity seriously. As a result of my work with you, I can see how creativity is a broader thing than I thought, that it undergirds whatever I do and that I can have chapters of various sorts of creative expression in my life. Since making my first film, and to my own surprise, I seem to have manifested a very human and warm group practice. I seem to be attracting more clients without much strain, and they are really different kinds of folks. I feel like I am psychically "reading" folks without working as hard, or giving core energy away. So interesting.
I think the key is that you helped me develop another relationship with creativity. Our work together had me making friends with, and making peace with, the various and changing aspects of creativity in me. These days the river is just flowing at a higher level in general. I don't feel like my approval of myself is somehow on the line. That's a big shift right there.
Phew! Thanks!" - R.W.
"Suzanne, this was a wonderful class! Thank you for opening the door to greater acceptance of myself as I am, rather than as I feel I 'should' be." – L.S.
“There was something that occurred after the very tender meditation you did, which expressed the insight that, "I didn't know 'it' was within." I was curious about the fact that this was standing out for me. I'd been reflecting on its truth, and the fact that it's not something we're "conditioned" to believe. Last night in a book I've been reading, reference was made to the root of the word religion. The Latin stem of the word is "religio," meaning "connecting to one's own self"!! It literally "electrified" the connection between those comments and the experience of Divine Openings!! Thank you so much, Suzanne, for nurturing this understanding, and for bringing to us this beautiful work that allows us to feel the tender and intimate connection to the Source of Grace that lives within us all.” – L. B.
"What an incredible teleclass you gave last week. Many things resonated with me.The session also reminded me of how gifted you are and how your insight keeps shifting my world." - L.S.
"Suzanne, last night was the best teleconference I have ever enjoyed! You are terrific and really have a way of expressing thoughts and truths very clearly." - K.S.
"I was in the audience for your brilliant presentation. I just wanted to tell you that I thought it was inspired and how much I enjoyed it. I hope to attend one of your seminars soon, please keep me on the list. Many thanks again for your inspiration." - H. S.
This is a truly powerful energy, the one that fills me up with joy, more positive outlook on life and with inner peace. I feel things finally move on for me, I feel "unstuck" and equipped with a new sense of direction in life. My inner guidance is stronger, I am more confident and trusting in myself, re-gaining a deep level of identity, which I felt was lost in the past years. Inner peace strength and a growing confidence become my new "background", so even if difficult days still happen, it is remarkable how easily I go back to my steady and positive self. New ideas and solutions to my old problems pop up, and I accept them with curiosity, lightness, and courage. Thank you from the bottom on my heart for introducing me to the Energy of the Divine Openings and to this feeling - and the real life experience! - that life can be easier and lighter."IP - "a recovering seeker"
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! I absolutely LOVED the class. It was wonderful. I left feeling so much lighter It is the most refreshing thing in the world... I think about how many tapes, workshops, books, DVDs, etc., I have bought throughout the years. It has been great material, but I got to a certain place and couldn't figure out how to release my own resistance. It is the Grace and the ease and flow that has been missing for me. The class is what is making all the difference between reading a book and understanding it in the mind, and taking that information and learning how to apply it in a way that works. All the books and DVDs in the world are no substitute for a class like this. As my kids say, "You Rock!!!!" – Karri Powers
"This Divine Openings class is the perfect next step for me. It came at just the right time...things are getting resolved without my even knowing about them!" – T.M.
“I just wanted to thank you again for yesterday. Our time together was so very helpful and affirming. The Divine Opening was profound and much needed. I am profoundly grateful for your willingness and ability to bear witness with me to these profound experiences, and even more, to guide me through them. I wanted to tell you that, last night, I had a beautiful dream. I found myself in this large darkened room. In the middle of the room was a lit candle. I moved toward it and sat in quiet meditation for awhile with my eyes closed. I then began to realize that there was more light in the room and I opened my eyes. I was surrounded by thousands of cherubic faces of babies and toddlers. Their faces were luminescent and filled with joy. I felt this profound sense of peace and connection. Wow! I woke up and my cat was sitting next to me staring into my face with this sweet, quizzical look. As soon as she realized I was awake, she cuddled up next to me and we fell back asleep. I feel even more opened to a state of grace.” – V.K.
