Keynote Title: Adventures in Consciousness: To What End? (for information about Suzanne's attunement sessions with Sanaya, please continue to the bottom of the presenter page)
Biography: Suzanne Giesemann is the author of eleven books, a metaphysical teacher, and an evidential medium. She captivates audiences as she brings hope, healing, and comfort through her work. Suzanne’s gift of communication with those on the other side provides stunning evidence of life after death. Touted as “a breath of fresh air” with “a quality that is so different from others that it is difficult to describe,” she brings messages of hope and love that go straight to the heart.
Suzanne is a retired U.S. Navy Commander. She served as a commanding officer, as special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, and as Aide to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11. Today Suzanne addresses questions about the purpose of life, the nature of reality, and attuning to higher consciousness. Her work has been recognized as highly credible by afterlife researcher Dr. Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., and best-selling author Dr. Wayne Dyer. She is a member of the Advisory Council of the Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies along with such notable leaders as Raymond Moody, M.D., Jean Houston, Ph.D., and Larry Dossey, M.D., and she serves on the Executive Council of Eternea, where she is also the Chairman of the Spirituality Leadership Council.
Suzanne has a Master’s Degree in National Security Affairs. In addition to her command tour and duties as aide to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff she served tours in naval intelligence, she taught political science at the U.S. Naval Academy, and was a plans and policy officer for the U.S. Southern Command. Her overseas assignments were in Panama and Japan. Her military decorations include the Combat Action Ribbon and the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.
When Suzanne first began researching and writing the Hay House published book, The Priest and the Medium, she never dreamed that she would one day connect with the unseen world herself. After years of meditation, however, she began to have her own intuitive experiences, which led her to several classes on mediumship and to an intensive course at the respected Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Sciences in Stansted, England. Her eye-opening experiences there allowed her to develop her contact with the unseen world to the point where she now gives private readings, connecting people with their loved ones who have passed.
Her experiences with inspirational writing and inspired poetry are published daily on her blog, www.SanayaSays.com . She co-authored a how-to book of evidential mediumship with internationally acclaimed medium Janet Nohavec, Where Two Worlds Meet, and Janet Nohavec’s compelling biography, Through the Darkness. The story of Suzanne’s transition from Navy Commander to her current work as an intuitive counselor is chronicled in her memoir, Messages of Hope, which is featured in a documentary by the same name.
Attunement with Sanaya
Who is Sanaya?
Some call it “channeling;” others call it “trance mediumship.” Those who know me well and witness me speaking in a different voice with fluid gestures tell me, “That’s not you.” In a way, they’re right, but in another way, what they’re witnessing is a higher aspect of “me” (and you) as spirit. This aspect of Spirit is available to all of us, and comes to me as the result of desire, intention, and years of practicing attunement with the higher realms through meditation.
What is this phenomenon that brings through answers to questions of which I have no knowledge that brings through written wisdom in the form of inspired poetry, and the daily words of “Sanaya Says”? What is this phenomenon that expresses itself through me in public gatherings of kindred spirits when I quiet my mind and simply “allow” that energy to flow through me?
I call it “attunement,” because it is a process of consciously attuning with Infinite Intelligence, with the One Mind. When I bring through Sanaya’s words, I am “tapping in” to Higher Consciousness. I am allowing that Consciousness to express itself through my body: through my brain, through my vocal cords, through my arms and hands, and through my pen.
“All That Is” is guided and overseen by The One –the one Divine Mind. We-just like those “focuses of consciousness” beyond our human level-are all part of that Mind. When the mind of Einstein received the inspiration that led him to “E=MC2,” that came from Mind at a higher level. When the mind of Mozart “heard” his many symphonies in single bursts of inspiration, he was connecting with Mind,or minds, at a higher level. When I hear the words of Sanaya, I allow that Mind, or minds, from a higher level to express itself through me as inspirational words, written or spoken.
Anyone who creates beautiful art or inspired music, prose, or poetry is channeling. They are bringing through the higher aspects of Who we all are, for we are all spirit-beings. They are bringing through the higher aspects of Consciousness to which all of us are connected and through which all of us are interconnected.
Sanaya has told us that she is a collective consciousness of minds with both a feminine and masculine energy. This energy comes from a higher dimension than our own. Sanaya would not even need a name, except for our human need to put labels on things and place our experiences into well-defined boxes. Sanaya takes us outside the box into a dimension where we come face to face with our higher selves. To hear the words of Sanaya as they come through–to sit in that energy–is a palpable experience of higher vibration–of love. To read Sanaya’s words can have the same result when you tune in to that finer energy as you read.
Sanaya’s teachings, like the teachings of many mystical masters throughout the ages, tell us that there is only One Mind. That Infinite Intelligence to which we are all connected is not readily perceptible while we walk about in a waking state. Higher levels of consciousness are, however, accessible to all of us in our dreams, in meditation, and in a waking meditative state. Those higher levels provide us wisdom, guidance, and inspiration when we learn to still the mind and shift our waking consciousness.
So, call it channeling, if you like. Call it “trance mediumship.” For now, I’ll simply call it “Attunement.” As “Suzanne Giesemann,” I am unable to instantly express my limited mind with such beauty or insight. Surrendering to Higher Consciousness, I am able to attune to Sanaya and All That Is, and to share that loving energy with others.
