Telepathic Animal Communicator, Intuitive,
Reiki Master Teacher, and Artist
I have always loved animals and from early on, I knew how to talk to my Guides and Angels. When I was really young, I talked to them about everything on a regular basis. I lived completely from my heart. In the second grade, I started questioning the messages I was receiving. I also noticed that no one around me was talking about their Guides, so I began to question their existence. And, because I did not feel that I had anyone to talk to about what was happening within me, I began to shut down. I stopped listening to the messages and as a result, depression began to come in.
A Spiritual Direction
In the fall of 1990, I began to wake up! Depression was a major factor in my life and my world came crashing down. I was extremely unhappy and full of fear. My marriage was falling apart and the business I had started was not going anywhere. I made a decision to change my life, change my attitude, change my mind, and invest in me. I have been on a Conscious Spiritual Path ever since. For me, the inward journey is the most important journey I will ever take. I found that once awakened, I can never go back. And for that I am eternally grateful!
One of the most important things that I have learned on my Journey, is that I am responsible for, and take credit for every thought and every feeling that I have. I am responsible for every action that I take. For generations, and through socialization, we taught each other that separation and fear are real. It’s no one’s fault; it’s just a story that we tell. On my journey, I am consciously choosing to change my story. I know that in truth, we are all connected. I know that love is all there is. I am learning that I am able to change my mind and my heart whenever I choose to do so. I can choose to live consciously. I can let go of fear and I can move into a Higher State of Consciousness. Because I have been given the gift of Free Will, I am able to make a new choice in every moment.
What if? What if I changed my mind and my heart? What if I shifted fear, ever so slightly, towards a more loving attitude? And, what if I continued to take small steps towards shifting out of fear to love? What would my life look like then?
Rediscovering My Authentic Self
I met my mentor and dear friend, Rebecca Moravec in 2002. I had the honor and pleasure of studying with her until her transition, December 26, 2014. With her help and guidance, I was able to reconnect with my Guides and Angels. I am forever blessed to have had the opportunity to know her, study with her and rediscover my Authentic Self!
Reiki, originating in Japan, is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person, working on and through the physical, emotional, mindful and spiritual planes creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.
In 2002, I became a Reiki Level I and Reiki Level II practitioner.
In 2003, I became a Reiki Master.
In 2007, I became a Reiki Master/Teacher.
I love the peacefulness that surrounds me while I am sharing Reiki with my animal and human friends and clients. I use Reiki everyday to promote wellness and healing. I enjoy teaching and attuning my students to all levels of Reiki. If you would like to study with me, please check my class schedule for dates and availability.
Journeying to Brazil to see John of God
In 2004, and again in 2005, I went to Abadiania, Brazil for two weeks at a time, to see João de Deus or John of God. John of God is a healer and medium. He offers a powerful message of love, compassion, and hope for humanity. He is a humble man, and is quoted as saying “I do not cure anybody. God heals, and in his infinite goodness permits the Entities to heal and console my brothers.” John of God allows “spirit doctors” to take over his body three times a week to miraculously treat the thousands of people from all over the world who come in need of remedy. Visiting John of God was a life-changing experience. Three days each week, I was able to sit “in current” and meditate for 3 to 4 hours at a time. I learned how to meditate deeply and completely. Through this practice I have learned how raise my energy vibration to heal on a cellular and soulful level. I found forgiveness, and my heart has opened to love in a most powerful manner.
Telepathic Animal Communication
I took my first Animal Communication Class in 2004. I immediately began connecting with the animals through this method and I have been doing so ever since! It feels natural to speak with them and it brings me great joy to use my gifts. I absolutely LOVE to talk to the animals for both the sake of the animals and my human clients.
As a Telepathic Animal Communicator, I have the ability to hear what the animals have to say and I am able to help strengthen and bond relationships between animals and their human families. Through a meditative process, I hear and sense what the animals would like to tell us. I am able to speak to all animals, including those animals who have died. I help people to connect with their animals, encouraging love and healing for the Highest Good of All.
In January of 2010, during a meditation, this thought came to me: “I would like to work with Rebecca Moravec (my friend and mentor). I would like to do a year-long study with her and a group of like-minded students. I would like to study Shamanic Journeywork including Meditation, Breathwork, Past Life Regression, Soul Retrieval, Finding Your Totem Animal, and Traveling to the Akashic Records. I would like to meet once a month for 12 months.” I was longing for a deep healing on a soulful and cellular level.
In February of 2010, Rebecca called me and told me that she was Guided to create a year-long study. The topic would be Shamanic Journeywork. We would be meeting once a month. We would study Meditation, Breathwork, Past Life Regression, Soul Retrieval, Finding Your Totem Animal and Traveling to the Akashic Records. She told me that my name was on the list, and she asked if I would like to join her. And so I did. I found the healing I was looking for, a deep and permanent healing. And, I found more. I found my passion, I found my love, and I found my Authentic Self.
I joined her for a second year in 2012. Again, I worked on myself. Through meditation and journaling I went even deeper and healed on a soulful and cellular level. I learned how to explore the journeying process including how to expand my awareness to include powerful healings for myself, my fellow classmates and the animals. I have used these techniques to help many people to heal, learn, grow and live their lives with more authenticity.
Creating Art is a Passion!
The Creative Spirit has always been with me.
When I was in the fourth grade, I began making art. From then on, I knew that I was an Artist. Initially, I was attracted to fiber arts. My mom taught me how to sew, and I began making all of my clothes. I taught myself how to embroider and I learned how to macramé. I sold my first piece of art when I was in eighth grade. I had a booth at an art fair at Rock Valley College in Rockford, Illinois.
In 1976 I went to Illinois State University and majored in Fine Art, my concentration was in Fibers. I learned how weave, spin yarn and make felt. I still love to weave and make felt. I am also enamored with silk ribbon embroidery, coiled basketry, fine beadwork and mixed metals jewelry.
Making art has helped me to keep my mind open and realize that anything is possible. It cleared the way for me to reconnect with my Guides, the animals and myself on a deep and soulful level.
The beauty of making art is the anticipation and excitement of what’s going to happen next. I have always seen my art in my mind’s eye and if I get “stuck”, I ask the question, “What needs to happen next?” or “What is the rest of the story?” and quickly I “see” the options. I love that my art tells me the story of itself and that I am able to express myself through it. I love the gifts of creativity and intuition that I feel when I am making art.
To view and purchase my artwork go to Lynn Schuster Designs.
