Divination much? Haha 😆 This is my current collection of Oracle cards. If you're interested in getting a reading that'll go deep to the core of your questions, then let's set up an appointment! DM me for more info
My favorite decks are Wisdom of the Hidden Realms, the Enchanted Map, the Good Tarot, Sacred Geometry Activations, and Native Spirit. They're all amazing in their own way, but I use mainly the first four decks for my sessions.
It’s been a week into my shadow work. I’ve been diving deep into the unknown of my psyche. What keeps me in the same cycles, over and over and over again. Why I’ve been unable to resolve this demon - IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) that I’ve had my whole life. I was always trying to heal myself on the physical level/superficial spiritual level. All ailments ALWAYS have an emotional/spiritual shadow connected to it. The body is absolutely intelligent. It will override its natural functions to harmonize with your thoughts/beliefs -whether you’re conscious of your thoughts/beliefs or not. Through journaling, I have been able to bring to light what experiences, thoughts, beliefs and patterns have been unconsciously controlling me and creating an environment for IBS to thrive. Journaling has been really cool because Im having a conversation with myself. A question comes up for me to answer and I answer it. Then I ask a question and it gets answered. So shadow work is having a conversation with myself as I unravel myself. I’m learning about myself and observing myself. My body has been releasing/purging all of the energy that no longer serves me. It’s true what they say “you don’t attract what you want; you attract what you are.” If you don’t like your reality then it’s time for a lot of introspection and thinking about your own thoughts and understanding your emotions. Follow the trail that leads you to the core beliefs that fuel the unwanted experiences. Integrate it and watch as your reality starts to shift. ✌🏽 #shadowwork#knowthyself#healthyself
~✨WHY WE FEAR AND HOLD BACK✨~ The quote sounds so simple, yet this is the number one reason for, why most of us have not been ourselves or isn’t ourselves still. Be fear being disliked and the consequences of it. Judgement. Neglection. Abusement. Especially if we have experienced that in our life before - and especially during our childhood, where we had no other choice than disconnect from self and just survive it all. This has created huge traumas inside of us, that when we’re authentic, we will experience abandontment and neglection and abuse again. That when people dislike us, it is our entire survival which is at Stake. But I’m here to tell you something. This was the truth for you back then, but it isn’t anymore. Now it’s oposite! 💖 When you as an adult hold yourself back from being your true, authentic self, you actually yourself continue the circle towards yourself of neglection, abamdonment and abuse. ‘Cause you right now abandont, neglect and abuse yourself, when you hold back and is controlled by old fears and traumas, which have NOTHING to do with who you are now and in your core. You don’t need to survive anymore, my love. You need to LIVE again 💖🙏 But Breaking this fearful circle is tough, I admit that. A lot of shadowwork and inner childwork. But it’s worth all of the tears! It’s cleansing, so you can come back to yourself and finally have the courrage to be disliked. Because now the game has changed, and you know that your survival is not at stake, when people dislike you. ‘Cause it has deep down nothing to do with you, it has to do with them, and their inner children who have been hurt. So break the circle towards yourself. Begin to practice selflove - Real selflove in depth and be brave to be disliked AND liked too. ‘Cause you deserve it, just because you exist. And your soul so badly wants to live and do what it came here to do 💖 Hugs and love HCM ✨🌙✨ #selflove#judgement#highlysensitiveperson#myspiritualpath#vegan#hsp#empath#healing#shadowwork#fear#authenticity#innerchildwork#anxiety#mentalhealth#healthylife#love#abuse#neglection#therapy#guidance#quotes#lightworker#infj#spiritualworker#psychology#inspiration
Knowing my Avoidance Strategies help me recognize when they arise and provide me an opportunity to evolve. Every action is based on feeling, real or projected, so the more I can stay with uncomfortable feelings, the more freedom and choice I ultimately have. This week, I’m practicing watching the inner critic... blaming and wrong making to keep me in a superior head state, meanwhile my heart and Being get drained, my energy decreases and I lose integrity. The way out is through. I feel the underlying fear/ resentment and let it inform me that something is mis-aligned. At this point I can let it move through, integrate the energy and become re-vitalized. #practicewhatyoupreach#yogawoman#knowyourself#shadowwork#lightworker 📷@traceyjackphotography
Day 16: What scares me about myself?
Deck: Halloween Tarot
Two of Pumpkins
That I won't be able to balance myself, my emotions and mind. I know this is unfounded since I have been working on it and I'm much more balanced than I've ever been.
If you told the universe, okay I am ready, I am ready to go to the next level, I am ready to align with the speed of creation, you probably had no idea what was coming to you, the challenges, the heart break, the betrayal, the sickness, the loss...
In other words a long dark night of the soul. ~what if the dark night serves our spirit, forcing us to rely on something beyond human capacity. It can open us up to new and mysterious possibilities.~
~is it possible that I am only meant to survive each adversity to help me see myself in all my magnificence, power and glory?
We must accept that the transition from Ego to Soul occurs through our deepest heartfelt surrender, instead of blaming each circumstance and character for the expansion they inspire, we relinquish each weapon of defense and embrace every catalyst, every problem and every pain as something that is necessary for our evolution. So we surrender, and accept that the clearing and cleansing of old stagnant energy is painful, but we understand that from this space of heartfelt surrender we are able to honor things as unique expressions of Source energy where life can ebb and flow without shaking our sense of self~worth, as this occurs we can elevate our vibration, and align with the universe for our greatest potential to emerge. #spiritualawakening#spiritualsurrender#surrender#twinflame#darknightofthesoul#shadowwork#alignment#awakening#consciousvibrancy#kundaliniawakening#kundalini#angelnumber111#angelmessages#lawofone#solarflash#dnaactivation#oneness#consciousparenting#innerbeing#intuition
Collective energies for October 17, 2018 - The Moon entering Aquarius generally has us feeling the need to break free and do things differently. Not only is it entering Aquarius today (squaring the area exactly where the next Full Moon will occur on the 24th) , it is squaring Uranus, then going into a conjunction with the South Node and then squaring off with Venus. Bam, bam, bam.
Things have a high chance of irritating us today. Although you may not want to hear this, triggers are there to help you. We truly create our realities. If you find that you are being triggered by whatever is showing up in your reality, rather than get swept by your emotions, take note of them. These are exactly the things you have a chance to release during the energy of the Full Moon on the 24th. Remember we are on a crash course of getting rid of old patterns in our lives that no longer serve us with the Venus retrograde. This energy will not let up until Mid-November. Make the most of it. Like Eckhart Tolle said "We are being presented with two choices: evolve or repeat."
“Whether you have your own side hustle, or you have a ready steady job where you’re trying to climb up the ladder, we spend so much time and energy checking the other lanes. There’s nothing that kills you in a race like looking over and checking lanes. You can hustle for your worth, or you can KNOW your value- that is daring leadership. And by knowing your value I don’t mean looking in the mirror and saying I value you, I love you and you’re awesome lets go kick some ass. I mean if you do that, rock on thats great, what i’m talking about is a sit down with your people, with your supervisor, with whoever you work with, whoever you trust, and say, “Help me explore and name the value I bring. Help me know what it is that I do uniquely well. Tell me what strengths you think I bring.” We have to understand our value. Shame won’t pick on someone who knows their value because it’s too hard to stick to us.” - @brenebrown in covo with @marieforleo 🌹
I used to be scared to ask people for help. I had major trust issues rooted in deep trauma. As i’ve worked through the muck, i’ve cultivated a community of badass humans surrounding me that constantly remind me of my value. I ask them questions. I share ideas. I get advice, opinions and support. They’re my team, they’re my tribe. I’ve put love and energy into these relationships and watered them to make them flourish. I don’t pour from an empty cup, and I don’t expect those I love to either. We build each other up. We hold space. It is symbiotic. Together, we are learning how to cultivate and put our boundaries into action. ❤️
Even though I still get paralyzed bc I resigned from a stable job in NYC at 25 to align with my morals and values, go rouge and start a business, I am doing the damn thing, I am choosing the great adventure of being both brave and afraid at the same time, I am not compromising, and i’m really fucking proud of that. ⚔️

This message is for those of us it resonates with and actually continues from yesterday’s message. .
The Empress is Pearl - reminds us that our spiritual growth and gifts develops much like any thing we learn, through work and effort to do a thing. A pearl pearl forms when a foreign object enters the oyster and the oyster reacts to the agitation or discomfort by working to put pearled layers over it to neutralize the agitation. It does not ignore the discomfort- IT DEALS WITH IT! Our own growth occurs by facing the things that bring us discomfort and working through them to grow.
What in your life needs to be face and worked through sit hat your own inner beauty and pearls can shine bright? Take those painful experiences or ideas and face them, then them into beautiful pearls that you have grown from!!
The consequences of those who fish for fun ☹️😥 sharks are awesome, not as viscous as people make them out to be. They can be, but for the most part they are more vulnerable. Compassion towards all life is my philosophy. Repost @alkaline_vegan_news
FAQ#2 : WHAT IS SHADOW WORK?
Although our shadow sides are often witnessed by those around us, we ourselves are usually blind our shadow because of the intensity with which we fear, reject, and disapprove of it. The shadow tends to expose itself either in unexpected emotional outbursts or in our critical judgments of other people – and yet, often, we don’t recognize the presence of our shadow in these incidents. All we know is that afterwards, we feel humiliated, ashamed, or guilty, not to mention, confused.
Shadow work is any process that brings our shadow into the light of our awareness. It is any activity that makes the unconscious conscious, and the unacceptable acceptable. We’ll gently dive into a few of these processes together during this workshop, and you can continue to do them on your own – shadow work is truly an ongoing journey, there’s always more to uncover.
One of the most effective ways to do shadow work is to explore our judgments of others. We often project onto others that which we reject in ourselves. So, a good question to ask yourself when confronted with someone you strongly dislike is: “What is it about that person that I can’t stand? What qualities or behaviors do they possess that are so unacceptable to me?” Want to dive into the work? This Saturday afternoon I'll be teaching a segment on Shadow Work at @rootmammabk in Brooklyn. Join me and this beautifuk community for an Afternoon of Healing (link in profile). ❤
Death deities collection: The Morrigan. In honor of Samhain around the corner, Shadow Wick is creating the death deities collection. 10 candles from various cultures and pantheons to honor death deities and learn their lessons. This candle is to honor the Celtic death goddess, The Morrigan. As a triple goddess, The Morrigan has many aspects and this piece is created to especially learn of courage and strength as we face our fears, embracing the shadow and accepting all it offers as we transform and grow, and battling to empower our life as we can before taking our flight with the great crow of death beyond the veil. The pillar is a red strawberry base brushed with apple oil and ginger. The front has the triple spiral to honor the triple goddess that The Morrigan is and an onyx beneath. A black velvet cord runs around the base with 3 black feathers and a bronze tone crow skull charm. Along the back is the prayer to The Morrigan in the ogham alphabet. It reads:
“Hail to The Morrigan. Battle raven, phantom queen. Warrior, witch, crow of the dead. Honor to you in all your forms to teach the lessons we must learn!”
The top ring has willow, Apple, and juniper berries under black and white wax drips. The entire piece is charged with a garnet, onyx, and carnelian. This, along with the other pieces in the death deities collection will be on sale at the Dark Arts Festival next weekend! #shadowwick#shadowwickcandles#shadowwickcreations#themorrigan#crowenergy#deathdeities#candlemagick#deathandrebirth#ancestorwork#shadowwork#samhain#feastofapples
I’m so grateful I get to tell you I had a shitty day to day!💕
Just a few years back, being THIS open about mental health was not even a thing!
Today, it’s compleeeetely normal and sooo okay!
And I frikkin’ love that🙌🏼🙌🏼
I mean... EVERYONE are struggling with SOMETHING! If not at this exact moment, they have been, or will...
And the best way to heal, is through awareness of self, acceptance of self, and being able to have fun with our human self🙃😑🤔🤣
This has been one of those days where I’ve been completely in tune with my ego problems, and absolutely neglecting my Higher Self.
And it’s so freeing to say that having those days is MORE than okay🕊🕊🕊
Because if it wasn’t, that would be the same as saying it’s not okay to be human!
It’s okay to be human on allll levels (okay, don’t take it suuuper seriously), simply because that’s what we came here to experience!!!
The only thing that helped me a liiittle bit today, was being all by myself and do something I really enjoyed doing back when I lived in Norway...
Singing to instrumentals on Youtube🎤
Which was exactly what I did once Noah fell asleep and my husband went to the gym.
Earlier this month I got reminded by @anneproven of the incredible healing effect singing gives you, not just to be expressive, but solely for the meditative effect it gives✨✨✨
Connecting with my old self, who always turned to music when I felt down, reminded me of how much I appreciate (and miss) the memories I created with @vildekarine and @trinespilde in what now feels like my old life💕
What helps you calm down and connect with your soul on a heavy day???
Did some inward traveling today. Went for a walk in this brisk Autumn weather and did some light reading. Been reading this book (along with a couple of others) since the summer and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for meaning and change. "... Everyone should learn to analyze himself dispassionately. Write down your thoughts and aspirations daily. Find out what you are- not what you imagine you are!- because you want to make yourself what you ought to be. Most people don't change because they don't see their own faults.... once in a while you should change your surroundings. But it is better still if you can change your mental environment so that you won't be disturbed by other's actions. Change yourself and you can live anywhere in peace and happiness. "

Getting back into that work flow 🙃🌀
The next week brings lots of lessons around transforming the way we communicate.
Mercury in Scorpio makes multiple aspects to different planets this week, including the conjunction to Venus yesterday.
We are being asked to speak truth to b/s, and to make sure that we are willing to explore the depths of our thought patterns, and purge the ones that no longer serve us.
What thoughts and beliefs, collectively or individual, am I ready to let die, and then be reborn in a more elevated form?
As an empath i can feel others emotions, illness and all others are feeling which is an amazing gift and i feel blessed for doing so, but instead of transmutaing it to love right away i am absorbing it all rather quick, which is exhausting and leaves me empty. My soul, my body, my guides and universe are making sure i take some rest, AND do all the inner work i have left before i proceed doing the healing and guiding work that you guys know me for. For these reasons i have decided to pull back from energy work a bit so i can focus on me. I have so much to heal and process. 🐛🦋This year has been HUGE in changes, transformation and transitions, i need a big break. • If you need anything you can EMAIL ** Suhanna.Carvajal@gmail.com ** and i’ll get back to you in prompt time. All of you who have scheduled sessions already don’t worry, i got you, i’m not canceling or rescheduling those. • I’ll be opening Spiritual reading/mentoring sessions and healings as soon as my Guides give me green light. Stay tune for dates 👀 Make sure you follow! • Thank you guys for always being supportive and understanding. • i appreciate all of you. 🙏🏻 Hugs, Suhanna.✨
Do you feel alone and lonely?
I feel lonely sometimes. And it feels heavy when I reach out and no one is available. During those moments I realize I must fill my own cup, which is an invaluable lesson and achievement. Truth is: Until you can fill your own cup, your cup will always be half-full no matter who you're with. When these feelings of loneliness creep in, I sink in, and do things like prune my plants, wear comfy clothes, take a salt bath, and eat comfort foods.
I face feelings of loneliness head-on.
The worst thing to me is being surrounded by others or in the presence of others and still feeling lonely. It's a definite indication that I'm not filling my cup. And when you can fill your own cup you can fill another's.

I used to want to change the world. In big ways. I had dozens of ideas and passions and desires. It was daunting. How could I be all these things? How could I share all these offerings? How could I offer all these gifts in the world? 🔥✨ After meeting with one of my clients today, it clicked. His wisdom and desire to help #whitemen heal, is a powerful hope I've had myself. But as a woman I've felt limited in my ways to support and facilitate this type of healing. This reminded me of a very powerful concept of dharma. As I touch lives through my dharmic work, as I support my clients to embody their dharmic gifts, they touch even more lives. Together, we touch countless lives and impact the world in unbelievable ways. 🔥✨ The dream I once had to change the world is happening. All the many desires I've had to impact the world are coming alive- through my clients. I get to impact the world in countless ways, diverse ways, because of my amazing clients. It's a powerful web of fulfillment. So blessed and grateful to do what I do. #changemakers#dharma

A pattern, addiction, or problem keeps repeatedly showing up in your life for a reason. Know that that cycle holds a very deep message for you. Once you become conscious of this pattern you can begin to peer into the darkness of your struggle. It is within the darkness that you find your answers. The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. ♥️

First session 1/2 off. 🌚

A few years ago, I had a conversation with my professor / mentor / friend Tracie Morris, and we were talking about acting: specifically the distinction between method acting (mining your own personal emotions / narrative for the role) vs focusing on the mechanics of embodiment (the British schools of acting where “you” disappear completely and the character takes over). I am intuitively drawn deeply toward the “refined naturalness” of British actors (as well as Yale folks like Lupita and Angela Bassett and Brian Tyree Henry who plays Paper Boi in Atlanta….Yale offers a lot of the same style of training as the big British schools), but I couldn’t articulate why until we had this conversation.
Method acting can be exhausting and traumatizing, having to relive and project emotions sourced from your own wounds over and over as they are projected onto a specific medium (in their case, theater and film). It can also be a great source of healing, depending on who the actor is and what material they are working with. Example: an actress who was raped in her own life, and she takes on a role that involves killing a rapist.
This brings me to spoken word poetry and mental wellness. I LOVE the catharsis, the truth, the recognition of self in the other that happens in poetry–always have and always will. However, I see the similarities between spoken word performance and method acting. There is an inherent danger in revisiting one’s wounds night after night for public consumption IF you don’t have a ritual for grounding yourself, for opening AND CLOSING that intense emotional portal. I believe that this is EXACTLY why so many artists deal with drugs and alcohol and depression and anxiety and sexual recklessness, etc. Walking around with over-active chakras and few effective means for re-centering from–and reconciling with–these powerful confrontations with our own darkness.
Come and sit with me.
Set down what burdens you.
I’ll listen to you from a place we both deeply know, our heart.
From this place Nothing you say will cause me to stir nor judge
From this place I am open to receive
So let’s sit down and talk it out from this place.
It’s important we hold back nothing, especially your fears.
I feel the burn of your desperation, frustration, & pressing questions
Since I’ve been there before I understand.
I feel you, I see you, & I hear you because I know you through our heart.
You see I’ve been challenged and I’ve sat with the hurt time and again.
I’m no one special but someone who genuinely cares.
I have extraordinary abilities to facilitate this healing & insightful work.
I’ve spent thousands of hours & dollars and am internationally accredited with 14 certifications from some of the most world renowned healers & spiritual teachers of our time.
But most importantly I do the work day in and day out and walk my talk.
I have proven to effectively use these tools to facilitate the process of healing & giving clarity for those who are seeking it. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’m tremendously grateful to serve you in this way.
I’ll hold you in a comforting and gentle way.
I’ll show where your space and center is
I’ll guide you back to wholeness and demonstrate how to integrate the work it takes.
But most importantly of all I’ll show you your own power & how to trust your own inner guidance.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
This I promise
This I love to do
This is where my heart is
This is what I was born to do
But be forewarned I may not tell you what you want to hear
As the truth is at times hard to hear.
I am not for everyone
But I am here with my heart open
To walk you hand-in-hand through this process.
It’s up to you to reach out to me.
