Kathy CrabbeHere’s what clients are saying about Kathy’s Readings:

What an incredible experience this was!! This far surpassed my expectations. Some of the advice in this was incredible. I have had other Past Life Readings from Etsy and this was by far the best one that I have found. I am going to print this out and put it in my journal to read again and again in the years to come. Thank you very much! ~ Tiffany

All in all, the readings I’ve had with you have been beautiful, life-affirming glimpses into myself, and I feel, the nature of Life…you have an amazing gift and I’m so grateful to be on the receiving end of them. I feel buoyed up and held by this guidance you offer and channel. ~ Amanda, Midcoast Maine, USA

I received my reading during a very black part of my life. Being desperately unhappy and not knowing why can make you feel like you’re in a dark space. To be perfectly honest I didn’t understand much about what the reading was trying to tell me at first, so I read it over and over and eventually I saw a crack starting to appear in the dark wall around me. The suggestion of drinking nettle tea didn’t seem to appeal to me, but I have started drinking it and to my complete amazement I feel completely energized! It really does help. Also I took the advice of working with a picture of a waterfall and I bought a huge picture and made it a centre piece in my lounge. I feel peace and ease when I sit and look at it. laura gellar Overall the reading allowed me to see things from a different perspective. I was told that the one thing I needed to do was be open to love and I always thought I was, but this is where the different perspective comes in. I was thinking be open to love from a lover, but I have recently closed myself off from everyone and everything, but slowly and surely I’m taking the advice as it was meant and trying to let people love me again. I feel so much more positive about my future now and know that I will eventually be able to move forward! Kathy, you are amazing. You rescued me when I thought there was no hope left for me. Thank you. ~ Laura Gellar, Writer ~ East Midlands, UK.

Kathy is very down-to-earth and honest. She is by far one of the best readers I have every come across on my path. She is passionate, open and willing to do what it takes to make sure you are satisfied. ~ Chris Sauner, Director, Work At Home United ~ Cuyahoga, Ohio, USA

let's knit magazine Scarily accurate! ~ Leah Sutton, published in Let’s Knit Magazine, Issue 18, May 2009 ~ United Kingdom

My surgery went well and my biopsy came back completely fine. The imagery and affirmations were very helpful. In particular, on the day of the surgery I found myself feeling very panicky and began the “I am Susan. I know I will be okay.” It calmed me immediately. ~ Susan Anderson, Accountant ~ Exeter, Pennsylvania, USA

test2Your Ancestor Reading gave me a HUGE exhale moment. Like I said earlier, I have waited 32 years to exhale. Each day since the reading, I am taking the pieces you handed me and filling in the spaces. Thank you seems too simple to describe my gratitude.You have opened up a whole new world for me.Thank you Kathy, for bring Jeffrey back to me and giving Frank the gift of his love. Frank Comments: As RuthAnn’s husband, I have listened to her tell stories of Jeffrey. I have heard the love and emotion in her voice as she described who he was, what he did and what he meant to her. I have witnessed the pain their separation has caused RuthAnn. Their relationship, as short as it was, is the best kind of relationship in the truest since of the word – they were each others protector. Nothing could fill that void for my wonderful wife. Marriages, material things, even happiness. The void was still there. Since Kathy’s reading I have seen such an amazing release in RuthAnn. She calls it her long lost ability to exhale. It is palpable in our house. You can feel, sense, know the energy that has been released and given back to the Universe as a result of this reading. I am thankful. As her husband, I am thankful to RuthAnn for seeking out Kathy and being willing to open herself to what may or may not happen in the reading. Thank you my sweetheart. I am thankful to Kathy for the way she handles her readings with such diligence and integrity. It is really about the connection for Kathy and she works hard to prepare herself and give of herself in the process of the reading. Thank you Kathy. Lastly, I am thankful to Jeffrey for never failing to make his sister happy. Even after 32 years “separated” Jeff, you have returned to love and protect your adoring sibling. She’s smiling big time my friend! Thank you Jeff. I’m smiling too. ~ RuthAnn & Frank Dickinson ~ Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA donnaleigh de la rose

There is a lot involved, and the fact that you made the cards yourself made it unique, a stand-out service no one else can offer. You could even go double (in price) and still be way too low. ~ Donnaleigh de la Rose, Psychic & Artist, Website ~ Woodstock, Connecticut, USA

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It is beautiful, I cried tears of joy. I have printed out your reading, and will be reading it again and again. Also, I just wanted to let you know that I am focusing on what I really want and working on the visualizing that Grandma communicated to you – I feel more centered, and more on track, than I have for ages! Your readings have helped me stay true to my heart. It was also nice to hear about my spirit guides, and fascinating for me to hear/read the things that you were able to learn from them, that were spot on in my life. I am also happy to have learned some techniques to help me ‘on my way’ to achieving and being, who and what I am here to do and be. I also now have a real feeling of peace, which I did not have before. You are so gifted. I feel peaceful, happy and relaxed, knowing I have done what I need to do to effect necessary change. Thank You! I can’t say it enough. My world is brighter and I can say that with all truth and gratitude! ~ Simone ~ Australia

test3That reading was AMAZING OMG you hit on so many things UR SO RIGHT!!!!!! Anyhoo I’m on cloud 9 just amazed right now…it was just amazing how he called when i was writing you about him…I will keep meditating on all the things that make me happy and make me feel whole, visualizing positive future events…and the white rose. ~ Asra Iftekaruddin, Pharmaceutical Rep, Model, Improv with 2nd City ~ Los Angeles, California, USA

As someone who’s skeptical, this certainly has helped me a great deal in finding some direction during this difficult time of my life… Thank you Kathy! ~ Debbie Fang, Mom, Wife, Graphic Designer, Jewelry Designer, Website ~ Hong Kong

Soul Reading Client, Lotta SvobodaKathy has an uncanny knack for providing just the right insight at just the right time. Not only is she right on the mark and incredibly insightful and guiding. But she sends such a pleasant, and positive energy out with her readings. Truly! ~ Lotta Svoboda, Stay-at-home mother, Jewelry designer, Etsy Store ~ Brookfield, Illinois, USA

That reading really cleared away a major spiritual blockage for me. I will be forever grateful! I think it was a very powerful reading and it helped me to finally be able to reach out. I’m sleeping better and I’m not afraid all the time, like I used to be. I’m going to enjoy this new-found peace of mind. ~ Aleta

creative soul reading client mary millerI am impressed by Kathy’s work. She has adapted a unique style of her own; creating cards that specifically addresses her needs. Her understanding of her clients are very “on.” She addresses her clients with compassion, understanding and going “within her clients” to address their needs. I am a professional psychic of 30 years. I know ethically, she is top notch and well worth getting a healing/reading from. You cannot go wrong in her hands. ~ Reverend Mary Miller

I’m just floored.  It’s wonderful!  It’s everything I knew I needed but didn’t know how to accept…if that makes any sense? haha!  I think I’ve already read it a dozen times.  There is so much there that really fits. Finally, I just wanted to tell you again how happy I was with my reading.  I’m not sure what I expected but I was just amazed at how much it resonated with me.  There were parts that I almost found myself laughing at because the message was one I’ve been hearing for so long from so many different places.  You’d think I’d get the hint.  ;-)  But honestly, it was astounding to me…so consistent!  I think the two main points that really hit home for me were “In stillness your truth will come to you” and “Be good to yourself/cut yourself some slack”.  So much easier said than done for me.  Seeing those messages laid out in this format really did seem to drive them home in a different way.  I feel very blessed to have received such a great reading and such valuable insights.  Thank you for choosing to follow this path and put yourself out there.  This work you do is so helpful and refreshing. ~ Rachelle, Texas (Past Life Reading)

I found your reading very straight-forward and easy to understand. That is very important for someone like myself who seeks guidance from a reader and is often very muddle-headed. Using too much flowery/psychic-like language only serves to confuse the seeker. Why I find your reading interesting…well, for starters, most readings do not include any illustrations especially one done by the reader. That makes it very very special. I also love the poem that you chose. ~ Anonymous

Soul Reader ClientsI got the best Anniversary gift I could have asked for – a wonderful reading and beautiful piece of art. This is the best kind of thing we can do for each other on our special days. We have been together long enough that a new shirt or a night out aren’t nearly as meaningful as something that informs us, encourages us, guides us and beautifies our life like your readings and art. I can not express just how much you, your art, your readings and your spirit mean to us…. Thank you Kathy… from the bottom of our hearts. ~ RuthAnn & Frank Dickinson

Jen SwansonI just wanted to let you know that after receiving the reading, something sort of clicked and I have been really happy to feel as though I not only can, but need to pause every day to make sure I am not losing myself in tasks that will never be completed. I think the greatest gift of the reading though, was the feeling that I am growing from one phase of my life into another. It’s a process to let go of the need to make myself feel worthy by accomplishing any number of things I set up for myself but I have, on the whole, felt as though it’s getting easier and easier. I have also taken to heart the notion of seeing myself as a joyful person instead of just as a responsible person and it’s getting easier to do that as well. I was happy to see that my bookmark was “Jonie, perpetual daisy dreamer” because shortly after I got this reading I pulled out my art journal for the first time in months and made a “dreaming” page. ~ Jen Swanson

I wanted to say that the more I think about it or read it , the more it touches me. I like the positive thinking and the fact that your answers and impressions are “straight” (direct? simple ?), it goes to the heart. ~ Julie Falzon, Sales at Lush ~ Paris, France

esoteric kat

A wonderful reading, packed with insight AND practical advice. A rare gem from a beautiful soul. Thank you again for all the energy and love you have put into this reading. It has been heartfelt and is so very much appreciated. ~ Colleen ‘Kat’ Borucki, Jeweler ~ Connecticut & Vermont, USA.

This is my third reading and it was right on. It stopped me in my tracks, making a change in my narrow mind. Each reading has been a great help to our lives, bringing peace and settling troubled thoughts and feelings. This lady is blessed with a special gift and was able to correctly capture my grandmother’s highly unusual name and I thank her from my heart plus she is extra nice to boot. There is not enough thank-you’s on this earth to give to Kathy for giving me back a happy soul. ~ Denise, Home-maker, Artist, DCH Studio ~ North Carolina, USA.

Ancestor Reading Client, Ruthann DickinsonYour Ancestor Reading gave me a HUGE exhale moment. Emotions that I have buried far too long are being released…although it is sad, it is also cleansing. I have waited 32 years to exhale. Each day since the reading, I am taking the pieces you handed me and filling in the spaces. You have opened up a whole new world for me…thank you doesn’t begin to describe my gratitude. Thank you Kathy, for bringing Jeffrey back to me. ~ RuthAnn Dickinson, Paralegal Studies ~ St. Louis, MO, USA.

I think the biggest message I got from this is also my life lesson here, which is trust. It’s time for me to take a deep breath and jump into all the opportunities that await. It worked out in the past and it will work out this time too. I will continue to revisit this as a reminder to my Self to get back to business and trust it’s the right thing. ~ Mollie ~ Elementary school teacher/social worker and mom (my favorite job!) San Luis Obispo, California

“Kathy’s Creative Soul Reading was one of the most unique I’ve ever had, and not to mention the most interactive. The guidance I received allowed me to just let go of trying to control the outcome, and to just let things flow along organically, as they should. The integration of her artistic and intuitive gifts reveals an entirely new form, something much deeper and more Chad Woodward, Astrologerpersonable than anything I’ve seen or experienced before. If you’re looking for a different kind of reading, one that is fluid and self-empowering as opposed to being rigidly deterministic, I highly suggest what Kathy has to offer here!Two Years Later: Looking back at Kathy’s reading, I’m amazed how accurate it was. I didn’t quite connect with everything when I first got it, but now, with the way things unfolded, I’ve found her insights very helpful almost two years later. Her reading really helped to validate what I already knew intuitively from the beginning, allowing me to really trust my vibes and follow my heart–but the way it was presented really gave me the bigger picture helping to reassure me that I’m on the right track. ~ Chad Woodward, Astrologer

Sandy Meegan -Creative Soul Reading testimonial“Thanks again for this reading. It’s funny, I have read it over and over and each time I find something different popping out at me. First, i want to say I love the way you put this together. I, to date, have not met my own guides/angels and so to read about them is super fun! If you have any creative advice on how I can connect with them, I am all ears. Thanks so much again for such a rewarding experience”. ~ Sandi Meegan, Portland, CT, Reiki Practitioner **View Sandi’s’ Spirit Guide Reading here.

I am so glad I stumbled upon you on Etsy. Getting the soul reading was clarifying and sparked an interest in my own spirit guides, but the most helpful aspects were learning about the stones, goddesses, and cards that resonated with your reading. It was a very good and clarifying reading. Why I didn’t have the natal chart done earlier, I will never know, maybe that was just the right moment. It was incredibly helpful in understanding how I cope and how I see the world. It’s a lot easier to accept less flattering qualities when you see them in the report, the same goes for positive qualities that were validated. Thank you for such a great experience.” ~ Amy from Pasadena (Creative Soul Reading & Astrology Report)

momomatic review of Kathy Crabbe's pscychic readingSo it’s taken me about 12 years to work the nerve up to try a card reading again. Kathy of Creative Soul Guidance gives “Creative Soul readings” with cards that she paints herself. Her art has such a pretty and positive energy that it drew me in and I decided to give it another shot. The reading was fantastic. So insightful, guiding and uplifting. Kathy truly works in the light. (If any of my in-laws are reading this post, I swear I can hear you rolling your eyes.) ~ Mom O Matic from her blog, read the entire review here on her Blog

Soul Portrait & Reading Testimonials

Holly SoutarKathy’s Soul Essence Portrait of me is more than a charming, elegant, quirky, sublimely delightful sprite of art (though it is that), it’s an experience beyond expected ideas of the psyche. It stirred up unknown and hidden tendencies and capacities in me, allowing me to loosen the concrete of fixed patterns in my life, and explore refreshing new vistas with more zest and verve. Above all, you’ll find anything other than what you’ve experienced with a reader before; only now and zen do you come across a unique spirit like Kathy’s! ~ Holly Soutar, Artist, Inland Empire, California

It is lovely!! I love it. I was so happy to receive it. I love how the “lady” has leaf feet which flow into the branch…she has a beautiful organic feel with those double spirals and leaf designs on her dress…very elfish…I love the green/plant connection. She is sort of ethereal, with a whimsical air, yet grounded too.

I also like the fiery waves around the heart chakra area. Those are definitely “my colors (the Fall/earthy ones, esp the red on her dress). It is all quite intriguing and mysterious. Again, a thousand thank-yous for this gift you have given me. I cherish it. ~ Amanda, Midcoast Maine

Chad WoodwardReceiving a soul portrait from Kathy was quite a unique experience. Kathy has combined her astounding creative and intuitive talents to create a truly unusual piece of art that reflects the soul essence of each client she works with. Her quirky, colorful and simple artistic style adds an element of playfulness to each piece that invokes a sense of childlike joy. As Kathy connected with me energetically as she drew my portrait, I could feel a soul connection taking place as if she were quite literally tapping into my true spiritual nature. The experience was a lot of fun, and although the likeness was nothing like my physical self; there was an intuitive knowing that the image somehow represented me on another plane of existence. I found the piece inspiring and confirming of my spiritual path. It revealed that at my core is a bright luminous being radiating light all around. After reflecting on the image, it seemed to speak to me deeply, inviting me to continue on with my creative process, to see that new life was emerging. Kathy is offering something truly special, fun and original. I can’t say that I’ve ever had a reading quite like it. Not only did I receive valuable intuitive guidance, but I came back with a one of kind work of art that provides motivation whenever I need it. Thanks Kathy!  ~ Chad Woodward, Masseuse/Astrologer

Divine Feminine eClass Testimonials

Kathy Crabbe: Guiding Your Creative Soul I don’t teach so I can hear myself speak, I teach to inspire and motivate my students to learn and ask the important questions like “Why am I here?” and “How can I give back?” Are you longing to awaken your sacred self, to create, to be still, to recharge and re-discover your divine feminine intuitive soul? As women, I believe the moon can help guide and challenge us to know and act upon our instinctual, emotional selves in balanced, harmonious and soulful ways. To learn more about my Divine Feminine eClass please click here.

Here’s what Kathy’s students are saying:

  I was drawn to this course to unearth my spirituality and integrate it into my daily life. I tend to allow myself to get caught up in a madcap pace and feel like I’m running away from real life. By putting forth effort to be connected with the moon phases, to regularly write and collage, to align myself with like-minded women, and shake up the “norm” within, is long overdue! Your eCourse is falling right along the lines of what I need right now … self-discovery involving creative juices and perhaps even some spiritual development. Thank you Kathy! ~ Divine Moon Muser, Elizabeth Mow, Handbag Artisan

I have a lot of things to process – and I think this course has been the first real shake-up of my inner spiritual eye! ~ Divine Moon Muser, Jen, Social Worker, Artist

Did I suddenly realize (like everything in my life) that it is always up to me to make the choice of healing? Yep. It doesn’t mean that I have to embrace things that I have left behind for many reasons. It doesn’t mean that I have to change into a woman that I don’t like. It doesn’t mean that being solitary is bad and I have to stop. It only means that I can move closer to what I have asked for many years ago, when I was young (13). I don’t care if I am beautiful, I just want to be wise and to share that with others. ~ Divine Moon Muser, Claudi Neff

Divine Moon Muser, Michelle Buckley

Kathy is indeed a shining light, illuminating the way for you to find what you are seeking through creativity, art, moon musing, astrology, mid life transition …the list is long! As a mentor she has the knack of, despite being in the northern hemisphere in Southern California, making you feel as if you are sitting next to her having a good ol’ chat! She emanates a warmth that feels like a beckoning hand outstretched as she gently guides you to find your path. Most importantly though – Kathy makes it FUN! ~ Divine Moon Muser, Michelle Buckley, Creative Soul.

Working on my collages with the moon and sharing in the chat room with the other moon sisters has helped me open up more on a personal level. It’s really allowed me to target a change in my life and it has also helped me understand what I want to create for my future. ~ Divine Moon Muser, Brenda Nickolaus

Annalee Jackofsky One of the biggest goals that I accomplished during this course was to be happier with myself and more confident in all areas of my life. I learned that if I trust in myself great things will happen. I don’t consider myself to be a creative person (art, drawing, etc.), so I was very proud that I didn’t just create one collage, but five. ~ Divine Moon Muser, Annalee Jackofsky

I can’t thank you enough for having this course and for the wonderfully open and supportive atmosphere you’ve created, it has been totally transformative for me and has given me so much direction, I just can’t believe it. I don’t want to leave…PLEASE!!!!!! don’t say it’s over!!! ~ Divine Moon Muser, Dawn Pinke Anderson

Divine Moon Muser Spotlights

Spotlight on Divine Moon Muser: Annalee Jackofsky

Annalee Jacofsky in the Home Grown String Band What creative and intuitive goals (big or small) have you accomplished or made progress on because of, or related to this Divine Feminine eClass? One of the biggest goals that I accomplished during this course was to be happier with myself and more confident in all areas of my life. I learned that if I trust in myself great things will happen. I don’t consider myself to be a creative person (art, drawing, etc.), so I was very proud that I didn’t just create one collage, but five. I’ve learned to trust in my gut instinct and not to question myself to the point were I never make a decision. I was never much of a journaling person; I always got bogged down in writing way too many details and facts as if I was writing a story that someone else was going to read, but during this course I discovered I didn’t need to do this. Even if I just wrote down key words and feelings with no explanation as to why I was feeling that way it made me feel a lot better. It allowed me to release things instead of dwelling on them and letting them eat way at me. I feel this was one of the most important discoveries I learned from this class. I’m also trying to not let my  Annalee Jackofsky learning disabilities stop me from accomplishing thing. To believe in myself and not compare myself to other people, especially my sister. All of these things have begun the process of freeing me from who I was in the past, letting me write the future in anyway I would like. What’s your future vision for your Divine Feminine Moon Musing Self? That’s hard to say. The future is not yet written. I would like to pursue a more creative, intuitive, and spiritual way of living. I would eventually like to help other people in this way, too. Either by being a life coach, a writer, or in some other way that has yet to be shown to me. What advice do you have for other Divine Feminine Soul Sisters? Believe in yourself and be happy with who you are. Live the life you want to be living, tomorrow is going to happen either way, so take the chances today that you need to take to live your dreams. Don’t be afraid of what may happen. Trust that everything will work out. Is there anything else you’d like to share?

I would just like to share my favorite quote: “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”Joseph Campbell

Spotlight on Divine Moon Muser: Brenda Nickolaus

Web: The Nature of Joy Blog: Art in Nature The Divine Brenda Nickolaus I recently interviewed the Divine Ms. Brenda Nickolaus about her experience in my Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul eCourse which I teach at the Wise Woman University ~ new classes start up every new moon. What did you like best about the Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul eCourse? I have been working with the moon and thinking of doing the collages when I found Kathy’s course. Kathy just gave me the right amount of encouragement to get started and to keep it up and to share the photos with the others. I loved the chat room and meeting everyone from around the world and sharing our ups and downs with the moon energy. This is a great way for me to take a class when time or distance is in the way of finding like-minded people! It was great learning and seeing that we are in the same cycles and moving through them with encouragement from each other! What creative & intuitive goals have you made accomplished or progress on in relation to this course? My biggest challenge has always been my inability to let go of my fear and doubt. I am naturally very shy but love being with people. I have high expectations for myself and any new creative moves I make and I do have fear of failure (which showed up in my journaling). So working with the moon’s energy for 3 months (I took the class 3 times) helped me work through some of these issues and release them with the full and waning moon. I did take some action steps toward my goals for teaching creative spiritual classes and it has happened! I now feel confident when I express myself to others about what I do at lunches and dinner meetings in the community. My goals as an artist are also more filled with inspiration and I am starting to work on my children’s books again. As a result of working with the moon phases it has helped me focus and coordinate my actions with the zodiac sign that the moon is in. Brenda & Iffy the red tailed hawk I’ve learned that it is okay to do (not just try), to make mistakes, to forgive myself, and to keep moving toward my goals with action steps that move me forward using the moon as quidance (love it). I’ve also learned that there is a time and place for everything and that there’s no better way to make changes in your life than to move ahead one action step at a time. Once I realized this I was ready to start meeting my creative goals and things just started to fall into place for me. What’s your future vision for you Divine Feminine Moon Musing Self? Since working with the moon on a more conscious level by doing the class ssignments and the journaling I’ve been able to accomplish so many things in such a short period of time and I am making the changes in my life that I know I want and deserve. I’m also open for new challenges that I was never ready for before. Because of all these new experiences, I feel more confident about who I am and about all my abilities. Brenda & Keri prepard to give a reading What advice do you have for other Divine Feminine Soul Sisters? Follow the moon and the natural time of the seasons of change and you too will find your path in the sun! It is a grand adventure and full of ups and downs. Being prepared is helpful so that when you are ready things will start happening for you too. Is there anything else you’d like to share? Working on my collages with the moon and sharing in the chat room with the other moon sisters has helped me open up more on a personal level. It’s really allowed me to target a change in my life and it has also helped me understand what I want to create for my future. line

Spotlight on Divine Moon Muser: Michelle Buckley

Website: Soul Holistics Pinjarra, Western Australia Divine Moon Muser Michelle Buckley Divine Feminine Moon Muser Michelle Buckley is bursting with a multitude of creative and intuitive ideas. She is a self professed “Creative Soul and Down To Earth Skippy Chick Who likes to dust her wings off and fly often” and her delightful soul has brought much joy, inspiration and powerful presence to our Divine group of Soul siSTARS. She is the creatrix of Ashavera Designs, Shima Crystals, and MPress along with the upcoming Oshun inspired sensual Goddess Kit. Michelle is definitely a powerful Divine Feminine presence to watch out for. Michelle had this to say about the Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul eClass: Kathy, quite simply is Divine! Perfectly timed, I came across Kathy’s website as I stood at the edge of the next chapter in my life. Feeling disconnected from my true self I intuitively knew that to bring about the changes I sought, I needed to go within to find love for self and access the Divine Feminine that is all women.

Signing up for Kathy’s e-course to do just this has taken me on a transformational adventure tour. Kathy is indeed a shining light, illuminating the way for you to find what you are seeking through creativity, art, moon musing, astrology, mid life transition …the list is long!

Full Moon Aries Collage by Michelle As a mentor she has the knack of, despite being in the northern hemisphere in Southern California, making you feel as if you are sitting next to her having a good ol’ chat! She emanates a warmth that feels like a beckoning hand outstretched as she gently guides you to find your path and she also knows how to ask the deep questions! The ones that will make you go deep within, that will make you look at a seemingly small observation you have made and take it apart until you get what it is that you are intuitively being told! Most importantly though – Kathy makes it FUN!

It is with much heartfelt gratitude that I thank you Kathy! Whether our paths crossed for a reason, a season or the journey I am blessed to have you in my life.

Have you ever taken an online course before and if so, how did this one compare? The other online courses I have taken did not have the wealth of interaction and feedback via their forum. Thus, I felt isolated and much less inclined to rush to the forum to see what new info/feedback there was today and get started on the next lesson. I quickly lost interest. What did you like best about this course? Feeling safe enough to reveal the real me. oil pastel interpretation of the DF by Michelle B. What could have made this course better for you? Nothing! The course work inspired me, your gentle guidance and questions/prompts resulted in me getting in touch with an integral part of my being that I had almost forgotten! One of the wonderful aspects of this course is that has made me aware of the timing of occurrences each month (eg that I love to sit outside a bath in her glow for the days leading up to full moon, and that Kirra (husky) starts her twilight barking – well howling really and the other dogs in the neighbourhood all answer back! Luna was indeed a glory to behold. The Forum: I like the forum, being able to get feedback from other Moon Sisters makes it more enriching. Journaling: Quite simply I love it! I am creatively alive and it has made many positive and joyous changes for me. Collaging: I have uploaded my New Moon Collage and indeed I found it to be a magickally creative meditative process. Each element holds many riches for me and I was wowed at the way it unfolded. Divine Moon Muser and eClass student Michelle Buckley What creative and intuitive goals (big or small) have you accomplished or made progress on because of or related to this course? Your course has brought together a list of creative ideas that have been knocking around in my head for over 12 months. Ideas that I thought of as being separate from each other have been brought them together as combined creations. More to the point is that they are now something tangible … for that I am eternally grateful. And of course there are also some little artistic ‘off shoots’ that I never imagined I would be doing either – drawing, painting and collaging! What a divinely beautiful path my new life has taken. What’s your future vision for your Divine Feminine Moon Musing Self? To live from the heart as my authentic self, sharing my creative passions to bring love, joy, healing and empowerment though my work. What advice do you have for other Divine Feminine Soul Sisters? The changes we seek start with feeling the love within and respecting ourselves. By connecting to the Divine Feminine within, we reconnect with our ability and Divine right to be the exquisite, empowered and sensual being we were created to be. Is there anything else you’d like to share? One of my favourite quotes: “What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now! ~ Buddah.” line

Spotlight on Divine Moon Muser: Dawn Anderson

Divine Moon Muser, Dawn Pinke Anderson Divine Moon Muser Dawn attended Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul several times and had this to say about her experience: Eighteen months ago I came to a turning point in that I could no longer suppress myself and my desires to explore and live my life my way. I always knew there was another plan for me, a path, and I’m happily exploring all the myriad of options available to me. I found this course while looking at Susun Weed’s site and her herbal courses (following some advice to get into nature, etc.) I have come to the conclusion that I will never truly fit in the way I see so many women group together. Half the time when I am inside the ‘inner circle’ of these groups, I am bored to tears with the ridiculous things (gossip, etc.) being discussed. I don’t need or want that! I long for the deep, meaningful connections and conversations that feed my soul! Like these discussions we’re having online!! Leo New Moon Collage by Dawn P. Anderson

I can’t thank you enough for having this course and for it’s wonderfully open and supportive atmosphere. It has been totally transformative for me and has given me so much direction, I just can’t believe it.

But most importantly, taking this course and delving into astrology again, particularly learning about the nodes of the moon and reading Jan Spiller’s book (Spiritual Astrology), OMG! it all came together…I get it now, what I’m supposed to be doing in this lifetime, etc., etc. What did you like best about this course? All of it!! Especially the online discussions. I especially liked the amount of frequent and expansive feedback from Kathy AND the networking, chats, and connections, etc. with the other students…my long lost moon sisters. What could I have done to make this course better for you? This course is so great that it’s hard to imagine any improvement. That said, I so enjoyed the student and instructor interactions that I wish (1) it were longer and (2) everyone involved were located in my city so that we could meet in person for discussions, art work sessions, perform moon rituals together, etc. I feel a connection to each like they are my long lost sisters (Moon Sisters, yea!) and I want a family reunion!! Has this course been of value to you and why? This course has given me such valuable insight into my soul purpose, my intended path, why I gravitate toward certain beliefs and practices…deepened my awareness and respect for the earth, the trees, the plants, the plants, the planets and the unseen world! I especially appreciate that it set me on a path of regular journaling, meditation and introspection AND gave me a family of sisters with whom to share my experiences. Are you continuing to moon muse, journal and collage on your own? Absolutely!!! I am even more aware of the moon, planets, the earth seasons, etc. and am following all the subtle (and not so subtle) signs and energies in all aspects of my life. Have you ever taken an online course before, and if so how was this course in comparison? The other online courses I have taken did not have the wealth of interaction and feedback via their forum. Feedback and interaction from the ‘leader’ was nearly non-existant. The student forum was bleak and it was impossible to get any interaction going with other students. I became bored after 3-4 weeks (It was a 3 month course) and quit. In contrast, this course was fun, lively, tons of discussion and feedback! It was hard to imagine we were spread out across the continent as the warm and friendly discussions and comments made it feel like I was chatting with my best friends. Are you interested in taking this course again? Yes! This was actually my second time taking this course and it further deepened the insights from the first time, added more learning, and really opened up my creative juices! Not to mention opening me up to noticing more messages from the earth, from nature. line

Spotlight on Divine Moon Muser: Jen

Divine Moon Muser, Jen took part in my online eCourse Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul recently and had these comments to share: A few months ago I decided to set up a giveaway on my website and in my promotion of the contest, I came across a posting in the Etsy Forums about a new online course called Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul. It was a timely arrival, as it fell right along the lines of what I needed right now: self-discovery involving creative juices and perhaps even some spiritual development. There’s that whole Biopsychosocialspiritual framework that we learned about in Social Worker School and one that I am trying to infuse in my life. It’s something that I feel I have been neglecting, especially in relation to the spiritual side of things. I joined up for this moon musing course with the hopes that it could help guide me in my continued exploration. As an artist, I sometimes run into blocks mostly formed by my own expectations and lack of time.

This course has been the first real shake-up of my inner spiritual eye and has helped give me more of a focus and also some tools with which to move forward in my world, artistically, spiritually and as a more in-tune woman. I now have an interest in Yoga and not just the physical aspects, but the inherent spiritual and mental aspects of the practice.

I also have a faery guided meditation that I listen to sometimes at night to help me ease into the sleeping world. I’m hoping that what I’ve learned from this course will continue to steer my creativity wherever it may need to go.In the meantime, my Etsy shop is where my creative objects end up looking for a new, loving home. An Interview with Jen Tell us about your craft and/or the items in your shop. Much like my real life, I seem to be unable to focus on one thing for very long. Right now I make crocheted scarves, beachglass necklaces, button necklaces, and I have a few totebags left over from the summer. I’d love to narrow down my practice a bit, but I don’t seem to be able to. Next journey: I am taking a sabbatical from producing items, as I am moving to England and want to spend some time making creative things just for me. What is your favourite material to work with? I have a really hard time narrowing anything down. I started out making purses, so I have an affinity for fabric, but I would have to say that what I love most right now is beach glass. The thrill of the hunt is fantastic! line
