The Power of Accepting Yourself

Renee Struthers-Hogge

Books East Oregonian What began as a journal for her children turned into a story of triumph over abuse, addiction and self-doubt for Suzanne Jauchius in this autobiographical book. Jauchius is what she terms a natural psychic (meaning she was born with psychic gifts) and the early parts of her life are full of doubt and self-loathing, the often vicious abuse by her mother, who tells her, It s not normal, and a father who is, at best, apologetic. As an adult she endures several marriages that inevitably fail when her husbands can t accept her as she is. While attending AA meetings as part of marriage counseling (her husband is an alcoholic), she is pointed in the direction of a woman who changes her life. Jauchius learns that addiction is not only for alcoholics and drug users. It takes many forms, but quite often those who suffer with addiction tend to get stuck at the time they first become addicted; those who medicate their problems away do not learn to face tough issues and grow emotionally. And people who become addicts as young people often are not equipped to navigate the deep waters of adult relationships in a healthy way. Jauchius book is not so much about her psychic abilities as it is her journey to find herself and to accept herself for who she is. When she finally acknowledges her abilities and puts them to use, instead of feeling shameful about them, a whole new world is opened up to her. While this book contains a lot of New Age ideas that some readers may not be comfortable with, the central messages of working through addiction and being comfortable in your own skin make the book a worthwhile read. Renee Struthers-Hogge is the editorial assistant for the East Oregonian. --eastoregonian.com/community/entertainment_news/the-power-of-accepting-yourself/article_6b7f1292-bb46-11e0-ac84-001cc4c03286.html

She has an undeniable presence writes Kelly Jo Horton ;The Portlander; at theportlander.com/psychic-suzanne-shows-the-way-home/ Suzanne Jauchius was just eight years old when her mother told her she would no longer be allowed to attend birthday parties if she continued to bring home all of the prizes from the guessing games, because this was not normal. Suzanne didn t know it at the time, but she would later grow up to make a living using the very skill she was once chastised for seeing things that no one else could see. Now an enthusiastic 60, at an age when most people are slowing down or retiring, Jauchius has just launched a publishing company and released her memoir, You Know Your Way Home. This is a book that makes you think on every page and forces you to examine your own life. It chronicles her life and career as a professional psychic, where she uses her psychometric abilities holding a personal object such as a watch or ring to see pictures of what s happening in someone s life. Her clients are business professionals, law enforcement officials, search and rescue teams and the curious worldwide. The book opens with a missing persons account: My God! Follow that car! I shouted, pointing emphatically beyond the gravel parking lot to the road ahead. My friend Debbi shook her head. Uh, excuse me. You re the only one who can see it, she said with a bemused smile as she turned the car onto the deserted road. It was October, 1989. I d been asked by Debbi, who worked with a local search and rescue team, to assist with the search for a little boy who had been abducted. The missing person was 4-year old Lee Iseli, the last victim of serial killer Westley Allan Dodd. This and other stories from her career are featured in the book, yet at its core the memoir focuses on Jauchius journey to find herself as she bounced from one bad relationship to the next and struggled to break destructive patterns she had accepted as the norm. This is why so many people identify with her story. In a way I feel like I m speaking the secret for a whole generation, says Jauchius. It feels mostly like empowerment. People read the book men and women and their reaction is an ah-ha moment of Oh my God I need to start setting boundaries. Oh my God I think I m co-dependent. Oh my God I didn t know that was unacceptable. Over and over people come to Suzanne after reading the book and say, This is my story. How did you get into my head like that? Why write a book at this point in her life? You accumulate yourself through the years and you get to a certain age where you re like, you know I ve made it this far, this feels good, and I m doing what I love and now what? And when I asked that question I kept hearing, tell your story, if for no one else for your grandchildren. What started as a journal for her grandchildren became a book. The road to telling her story wasn t easy. Unable to find a taker for her manuscript, Jauchius decided to start her own publishing company. Taking this step at 60 was terrifying, but it was an investment she made in herself, and she has never looked back. This is my life purpose, and once I started the process I never questioned it. The company is aptly named Bree Noa, which means second wind in Gaelic. The investment paid off. In the months since the official book launch, You Know Your Way Home has been doing very well. New Renaissance (bookstore) says it s the fastest selling book they ve had in two years, says Jauchius, with the excitement of a child. Her consultation business is booming as well. Hour-long sessions with Suzanne are scheduled out months in advance. She has a monthly stint with Daria, Mitch and Ted on 105.1 The Buzz that has rocketed her to psychic super-stardom in Portlan --theportlander.com/psychic-suzanne-shows-the-way-home/

Format: Paperback
Suzanne Jauchius's book absolutely grabbed me and I couldn't put it down; then, when I finished I wished there was more. Suzanne keeps a fast pace on her life story and her writing style is very easy to read and inspiring as well. At times I was frustrated with Suzanne's choice of husbands and even more so her non-supportive mother who did not tolerate her intuitive gifts. She finally broke free of her relation addiction and found her own way in life. Through years of therapy she realized her true unique psychic powers and her abilities to care for herself and become successful. This book touched my heart and I reflected on my own life situations throughout her story.

There were parts of the book that sincerely hit home with me. When Suzanne talked about the New Age scene in the 1980's, I could relate: quoting Suzanne's book in chapter 18: "The naturalness of my gift could be threatened by fears, rules, and conventions foisted by so-called 'masters' promoting the 'correct' way to do things. I learned that my ability functioned by instinct." Reading this chapter, I could totally related in my yoga, meditation, and general view of religion. Finding your own way is the way to go!

Suzanne got into a type of group therapy that ended up being a life saver for her. After five failed marriages, she learned about her "codependency" which is a learned survival behavior when we are exposed to a dysfunctional or abusive environment. This was a total eye-opener for me and my own life. We take on the burden of the world and those around us. As Suzanne aged, her connection to nature, the river, and then the experience of Native American traditions including experiences of the sweat lodge, took her into the life she was meant to live.

Suzanne Jauchius' story proves that life as a psychic is not necessarily "charmed". You might think that a psychic could use their powers to create or "see" their way through life and thus be able to avoid all the usual human issues or calamities; but, you'll have to read the book to find out just how the story really goes. Suzanne pulls back the curtain on her extraordinary life, abilities, hardships and triumphs and candidly allows her reader to experience her life through human, not "super-human" eyes. Her straight forward writing style reads and flows like a warm fireside conversation with an old, dear friend. The book is a page turner and at the end leaves you desperately wanting to know even more about, what feels like, a newly discovered kindred spirit.
If the world is so fortunate, Suzanne will continue this riveting read with follow-up book(s). Thank you Suzanne!

Format: Paperback
Suzanne Jauchius's memoir about growing up with an abusive mother and having to hide her impressive psychic abilities from her and a string of equally abusive husbands was like a soap opera. It was addictive - every page brought a new melodrama, so you keep reading compulsively to find out what happens next. You want to shake her as she ruefully admits to one bad choice after another, but you cheer her on as she gropes her way out of a prolonged dark night of the soul towards the light of self knowledge and acceptance of herself and her gifts.

Writing such an intimate memoir was a courageous act and, I would guess, the culmination of her own healing process. I think the core messages of the book are ones that we can all take on board: there are no victims, only accomplices; connecting with the natural world is essential to grounding oneself; and finding community supports you in finding inner peace.

As a working psychic Suzanne takes great pride in her psychometric skills and ability to get messages from objects and situations, which she has validated in a wide range of police cases and readings. She is a bit dismissive of the fuzzy emotional impressions of many new age psychics. I suspect that this view is colored by her own history of hiding her emotions and talents from her critics as a defense mechanism.

Anyone who has hidden or suppressed their own intuitive abilities out of fear of ridicule or worse can resonate with her struggle for validation. Ultimately, however, the psychic aspect of the story is only a byplay in her struggle to find validation and acceptance as a human being.

The lessons she learns the hard way are universal, and the fundamental one is that we can't find ourselves in the eyes of others.

The authors own story, told with such candor that it has really allowed us to take the journey of self discovery right along with her. I feel that each of us will find something we can relate to within her journey. You also see her developing her psychic abilities, which she has had since childhood and I have always had a deep interest in people who have that gift. A well written and engaging story.
