“We are all here to learn the truths of who we really are as souls”

– Suzanne Giesemann 

We are very proud to bring to you this amazing interview with a wonerful human being who blew our minds with the amout of insights and wisdom delivered in this conversation.

Suzanne Giesemann's story is truly remarkable. She had a normal middle class upbringing, went to college, and after that spent 20 years in the Navy where she moved all the way up the ranks.

She was promoted to commanding officer, flying on Air Force One with the president, meeting kings and queens all around the world and had a very successful career. 

When she retired 20 years ago, she and her husband decided to sell their house and bought a sailing boat, went out on an adventure for the next couple of years and lived a peaceful, idyllic lifestyle.

Then one day while sailing in Croatia she recieved a phone call that turned her life upside down. Her step daughter  had passed away.

As she saw the body of her step daughter at the funeral, she had a powerful awakening and as a thought came to mind… She thought “That is not her, she is not there.”

She saw her step daughter's body, but realized that her soul was not present. 

This opened up many questions and curiosity into the search for something more.

The traditional religious paths did not do it for Suzanne and her search for clarity took her down a spiritual path.

Tune into today's episode to hear more about Suzanne's facinating story and learn more about the insights and wisdom she gained over the years as she began serving humanity for the greater good. 

“Everything that makes us suffer is an opportunity to ask ourselves why am I suffering and what can I learn from that?”
