“When I was a little girl, I saw colors around people, and that’s how I interacted with them. I remember saying, ‘My teacher is yellow,’ and ‘This person is blue.’ People would respond by saying, ‘What are you talking about?’ From them on, I got the message that my gift was not ‘normal.’ So for a long time, I kept it hidden away and secret.
Growing up as an empath, I felt the world really loudly, and for a long time I didn’t want this gift. I numbed myself with drugs and alcohol and worked odd jobs that didn’t fit me because I felt my gift was weird, that I was weird. It wasn’t until I got clean and sober in 2020 that I was ready to step into my power and be me without any veils, any coverings, and any numbness. When that happened, when I did the work to heal my trauma and inner child and finally embraced my gift, the colors came back.
It was also around this time that I found NUSHU. I participated in a breathwork and meditation session offered by Biet Simkin and Vanessa joined and guided us through a prompt. I thought to myself, ‘Oh my goodness. Where has this been?’ Prior to the session, I had never heard of NUSHU, but I was drawn to Vanessa and this work. She made me feel safe. I knew with every cell in my body that this was something I had to investigate and learn more about.
Afterwards, I went to NUSHU’s website and I signed up for everything I could. When NUSHU Group Facilitator Training popped up, it was an immediate YES and I signed up right away. It was the first time I blindly trusted everything to align. And from then on, everything flowed.
The experience was affirming. The first day of training was so simple, yet so effective. It was beautifully crafted and focused on how I could hone the gift of pure listening. Throughout my entire life, I’d always heard, ‘Beth, you have this ability to listen. I feel heard and seen and cared for by you,’ and I usually brushed off those comments. What I didn’t know was that this was something I could cultivate, and that there was a safe space with NUSHU that was specifically dedicated to this type of work.
As I continued the training, my walls came down. Being in a community where everyone accepted me for me was life-changing. So much so, that about two months into training, I came out – on TikTok of all places – as someone who could see auras, and I received overwhelming responses from people around the world. Since then, this is what I focus on and do for a living now.
It’s been a beautiful journey that’s shifted how I operate in the world. I’ve stepped into my truth and power, and I now offer regular readings and host my own NUSHU Group sessions three times a month. My goal is to eventually host a six to eight-week NUSHU Group series with eight to ten people. And to be honest, I don’t know if I could do what I do today so eloquently if I hadn’t gone through NUSHU Group Facilitator Training.
More than that, I love the people I’ve met along the way. Beautiful, wonderful souls. NUSHU is not just a modality; it is a connection of spirits and souls, of people who want to come together and change the world one person at a time, just by holding, cultivating, and co-creating a sacred, safe space for one another. The world needs this kind of healing right now.
I yearned for people, especially women, who I could connect and cultivate community with, walk alongside and learn from, and I found that in NUSHU. It’s such a beautiful experience to see women supporting women in a gentle and genuine way. This is something greater beyond my wildest dreams– anything beyond my manifestations– and I am consistently blown away by the genuine love and support this community has offered me.”
