Susanne Venaas

where are you currently spending your time?  (Susanne) My name is Susanne Venaas and I am from a rural town in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I now live in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada.  (SISS) What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (Susanne) A few years back I became incredibly ill and had to quit working as a teacher.  I lost weight and I was in daily pain with months of diagnostic tests coming back “all clear” even though I wasn’t ok.  I slowly began recovering and then found out I had malignant melanoma and had to undergo surgery to remove the cancer mass from my abdomen.  Everything is temporary; joy, pain, illness, our time on this planet.  Surrender into each moment and know that it will shift into something else at some point too(SISS) Spiritual & Energy Coaching | | #SISS Tell us more… Who is @susannevenaas and what are you most proud of?  (Susanne) I am currently working as A Spiritual and Energy Coach with clients around the world, helping them to live their most authentic and aligned lives.  Seeing clients navigate through their own lives with more empowerment has me feeling all the feels!

How do you Keep Going?  (Susanne) I’m 41 and have had MANY years of disappointment.  Now I don’t look at it the same.  The disappointment comes when we hold an expectation on something or someone.  I’ve loosened my grip and realized that withheld opportunities, experiences and relationships help me align more intently to what is truly meant for me.  (SISS) What is your superpower?  (Susanne) I can tune in to the energy frequency of people, animals, inanimate objects and help others shift to their truest potential.  (SISS) Finish the sentence, my life has gotten so much better since… ?  (Susanne) I released the critical self-judgment of myself.  (SISS) Can you tell us four things people might not know about you?  (Susanne) (1) I battled depression and anxiety for almost 2 decades.
