We had the good fortune of connecting with Susan Grau and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Susan, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
◦ Though I am unsure as to where my future will take me, one thing is certain. I want to be an inspiration for change and growth in this world. By the time I leave this planet, I want to have inspired as many people as Spirit allows. I want others to see their self-worth and to live life knowing that they are not alone. My hope is that my services, in conjunction with my own difficult life journey continues to reach people on a soul level for years to come, and that they may come to understand one of the most important truths. This lifetime, although changeable, is not interchangeable. We must appreciate the moments because this is not a dress rehearsal. I hope to help others see the truth of what lies before us in the afterlife and that this vibration, this world, is only a block of time in our eternal journey. The afterlife does exist, and our loved ones are only a heartbeat away. Through my own near death experience and my mediumistic abilities, I hope to help those stricken with grief realize that life continues on after we leave this planet.
◦ Life after life is real, and truly wonderful. The souls we love on this planet and the things we love most live on. Death is not the end, just a transition to another part of our journey. People too often don’t realize that they are enough, lovable, worthy and very brave to be on this journey here. You are here, you are brave, and you have everything you need inside of you. Above all I want others to know and remember that I care about them, and that I live my life with integrity. No one is perfect, and although I’ve made mistakes in my life, my motive has always and will always be out of love and never to cause harm. Be kind to others. Be the light that this world needs and if there is anything I’ve learned on this journey, it’s that your darkest past can be your greatest asset for a more empowered future.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’d like to begin by sharing with you how I’ve come to this place, my incredible journey, and why I want to share this amazing gift with others. Simply put, I am a healer and have been a healer my entire life. I believe I’ve always possessed these extraordinary gifts, but my first memory began when I was a small child. At 4 ½ years old, I had a Near Death Experience also known as an (NDE). I was locked in an unplugged freezer in my parents garage. As I felt myself cross over into the spirit world, I was shown magnificent things. I waited without fear, and was held by what I chose to call, my Angels. I felt the presence of a “Divine Being” envelop me. My Mother told me later she had heard a “very strong” whisper in her ear saying, “Your baby is in the freezer”. She ran out to the garage, opened up the freezer and there I was. From that moment on I could feel, see, hear and communicate with Spirits. My soul’s journey is to help others heal. I understand my truths, embrace my journey, and have taken ownership of my gift. I accept my calling in assisting my clients to communicate with their loved ones and in turn, learning to help them find clarity in the process. I give my attention to helping others in crisis. I do this by connecting them to the other side to gain an understanding of the spiritual connection that remains after a loved one passes. So here I am, ready to serve and share this gift I was given. My heart is full with humility and gratitude. I am not only thankful for this gift from the Spirit world, but for all who continue to believe in me. Finding love, serenity, peace, joy, understanding, and healing are the goals most of us strive for in our lifetime. I can offer you guidance from the other side and a Spiritual awareness, from the place I choose to call Heaven and from the angels, guides and God of my understanding, to help you achieve these goals. I feel honored to be recognized internationally as an Intuitive Medium, and inspirational speaker. I enjoy being a celebrity reader as well, having been featured in Lifetime, Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP, The Hollywood Reporter, Vancouver Sun News , Style and Society Magazine, Famous Mediums and more. To be featured in James Van Praagh’s exclusively preferred mediums site, has been a highlight as well. I had the honor of completing my Doctorate of Divinity with the renowned Dr. Raymond Moody, the founder of the studies in Near Death Experiences, in the area of Ministries and NDE’S. I am also a certified professional with a background in counseling, offering services in: Mediumship, Intuitive/Clairvoyant, Life Coaching, as well as services related to being a Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, Spiritual Coach and Teacher of the Metaphysical Arts and other Healing modalities.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love the ocean, it is my favorite place to be. I believe that the beach is a great place to find peace and serenity. I live near laguna beach so I spend a great deal of time there in the warmer months. . I am a mexican food lover so Freds in Huntington Beach is a great time and I enjoy a margarita and chips and salsa. The Cinepolis movie theater in Laguna Niguel is a wonderful place to relax, get served and enjoy a good movie. I love to go on walks along Dana Point coast with my husband and spend time with my family. Pacific City, the Huntington Beach Pier, and Downtown Huntington are a great time. Disneyland is one of the happiest places on earth and I love to go there on the weekends. In the winter Big Bear and the snow is the place to be. Fishing is one of my more enjoyable water sports outside of swimming, boating and body surfing all along the pacific ocean. For me taking friends and family down to the coast is the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. Dinner and dining on the waterfront in Dana Point harbor and enjoying seafood at Wind and Sea or The Chart House topped with music in the evenings . I have a deep love for music and will go to the Hyatt to enjoy the 60’s and 70’s tunes and a pizza with my husband. Concerts on the green is always a fun evening with music and dancing. Sea World is another favorite place and of course the Wild Animal Park.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Oh my gosh there are so many: Spirits in the afterlife for continually showing up to help me help others, My Mom for saving me from the freezer so that I could return and help others and have a life here. Of course, my mentor and friend Dr. Raymond Moody, who has dedicated his life to learning and inspiring others to learn about Near Death Experiences and his book : “Life After Life”. My family who always believes in me: Dennis, Taylor, Jessica, and Leila Grace. Without them I would not be me. James Van Praagh Medium: for helping me to understand the gift of healing I carry inside of me, and IANDS-for allowing me to share my Near Death Experience with their organization and for helping others understand what NDE is.
