“Dear Suzanne, This message is for any doubters who think you may be a fake and just make up these stories for personal gratification. I consider myself a realist. I have never believed in spirits or the ability of one to foresee future events. I have known you and your family for the past twelve years or so. I have heard you tell these stories before but until recently, they were just stories. A few months ago, we had some eventful situations occur in our family. My son and daughter-in-law were trying to get pregnant and after several unsuccessful attempts at IUI, they eventually tried IVF and were waiting to see if they had succeeded or not. On the day we were to find out if she was pregnant or not I was at your house. We talked and you said, “She is pregnant”. About 30 minutes later I got the message that she indeed was pregnant. We talked again and you said, “I see you beaming over a big, beautiful baby boy”. Low and behold, several months later we found out that it was indeed a baby boy. At the same time, my father-in-law went into the hospital with a fracture in his spine. We talked again and you said, “He has cancer and he won’t last long”. Three weeks and 3 days later, my father-in-law passed away. It was an unbelievable shock to everyone, who thought he was the picture of health. He had metastatic cancer and it took him quickly. There were several other things that you told me at that time. The name William would come into play somewhere. I originally thought for a baby’s name. Funny, my father-in-laws name was William. A few weeks later I came across a book by an author named William Bennett. I thought this may be a sign. You said it could be your unborn grandson calling out to you. This was before we even knew it was a boy. The funny thing is the baby’s middle name is now going to be Bennett. These are just a few of the things that you told me and you were dead on. I stayed at my in-laws house right after his service and woke up from a vivid dream of my father-in-law touching my shoulder. I could swear it was real…you said he was there with you. Then in the couple of weeks following his death I saw several other signs that only people who knew him well would be aware of. I now, have become a firm believer that spirits are all around us and try to communicate with us to let us know that they are all right and there with us.
You Suzanne, are the real deal. There is no doubt in my mind that you have the ability to see spirits and have a knack of foreseeing future events. You are an amazing, beautiful, loving, giving, caring person and I am honored to know you. I sincerely hope with all my heart, that anyone who has any doubt of your abilities knows that you are truly the real deal!” – Annie
“Upon hearing this podcast, I was quite moved by Suzanne’s interview with Dr Dave. Despite my atheistic leanings, I felt a sense of curiosity and openness to her sense of connectedness to the divine.
My significant other was killed in a bicycle accident about a month ago and this loss has spurred in me a wish for a connection with the afterlife in ways I never before experienced.
As a result of hearing this interview, I contacted Suzanne and arranged for a reading. She was lovely—down to earth, very present, very realistic in many ways, and yet offered up information that was both accurate and insightful about my partner and our connection. I found this immensely helpful during this difficult time of grief, and although I still feel that the mystery of the afterlife is something we can’t fully embrace or understand in this life as we know it, it was wonderful to hear Suzanne’s sensitive comments and feelings of connectedness. I appreciated what she shared with me very much.
I would recommend her highly–and I imagine she is also a very good psychotherapist, given her compassionate and insightful nature.” – SM
“Bravo to Suzanne and David for a fantastic and courageous interview. None of what Suzanne shared was any surprise to me after grappling to understand and deal with my own awakening experiences that occurred starting with my husband’s imminent death from cancer 19 years ago. I don’t have extraordinary mediumistic abilities but visits from deceased persons, mostly in dreams but also in waking life, are not infrequent. Signs and synchronicities are so common as to be quite normal.
As to speaking out publicly about such phenomena, I can only sympathise with both David’s and Suzanne’s reticence in the circles within which they operate but as Suzanne says, she doesn’t know how long she has in the physical and if you have an inner imperative to share what you know, to not do so is a betrayal of yourself.
In the words of Anais Nin: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
I have followed the work of all the spiritual luminaries Suzanne mentioned. I attended a seminar by James Van Praagh when he came to Australia and was astonished at the results I had in doing the exercises he led in demonstrating psychic ability. Brian Weiss was my go to authority when I had a spontaneous past life regression during a hypnotherapy session in 1999 and Gary Schwartz is a scientist whose work I have followed for many years. He is a thorough and careful scientist whose work is impeccable and dedication and commitment unquestionable.
As for Jung, I can only say that my admiration and respect for his work just keeps on growing. He was a true visionary who was, in his own words, resigned to being posthumous. It takes time for revolutionary ideas to take root and flourish. As Suzanne said, he was quite psychic himself but he was dedicated and meticulous in his attempts to understand the origins and workings of the deep psyche and its historical and current expression in the form of myths, dreams etc. His attempt to develop a language in which to express his personal and professional experience and provide a framework for personal transformation was truly pioneering. In trying to build a bridge between spirituality/religion and psychology he was often in the firing line of both the scientific community and the religious community and I’m sure he would be very gratified to see that more than 50 years after his death, this kind of conversation is taking place.
Thank you David and Suzanne for your fantastic contributions to this evolutionary work. This kind of conversation may be startling to many listeners to Shrink Rap Radio but there is a groundswell of awakening taking place and many podcasts and other media dedicated to the subject. Not all of the conversations are as sensible and grounded as you two.
By the way, the earlier episode with Suzanne and David’s podcast on synchronicities are well worth a listen too.” – Gloria
“Dear Suzanne, Thankyou AND Dr Dave! For telling your story. Not only is your account of your cancer placed in a difficult place of “unknowing,” as you describe learning to live with “not knowing” where it or you are headed and which is still so difficult, despite your special experiences with the Divine and Spirit World. (I know myself from my own experiences of illness and spiritual/medium experiences how we are still human and doubt at times). But your graciousness and strong spirit rang out very clearly throughout the interview as also witnessed by Dr Dave–Thankyou for sharing very intimate and scary, yukky times with us so openly and honestly!.
The second really important point for me is to thank you and Dr Dave for the timing of this interview, because I too am training as a Counsellor, in my last year, and have had the challenge of also experiencing clairvoyant and medium information, particularly after a long illness also. As there are not many people who are academically trained as well as intuitive, and it is a threatening environment, your words of advice, circumspection, and again honesty and “works in progress” help lead myself and many young people who are also more and more experiencing both worlds–academic and spiritual/psychic “out of the closet”. It is really hard to find people who straddle both, and so your message is very important in more ways than you may realise!
We will all thank Dr Dave for the courage to “show us his chinks” and provide a forum to reach us all!
I wish you well in living life to the fullest, and may you also find a balance and peace between caring for yourself and for others.” – Debbie
