My dharma name is Shanti Bhum (social name is Susie Genera) which means "Peaceful Earth". It was given to me by Enlightened Spiritual Master Maha Vajra.

I was born and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. I lived in the border city until I married in 1991. Since then I have lived in El Paso, TX.

I have been consciously teaching since 2003 although I have been teaching since I was 12 years old. I have been seeking “God” ever since I can remember. I have a vivid memory of being 6 years old, getting on my knees and asking God, “Where are you? I started searching for answers since that early age. I grew up in a Christian based church and I didn't need my mother to make me go, I went on my own free will.

I got married had two wonderful children and after 11 years of marriage, we divorced.

During my married years, I was still looking for answers to questions I couldn't ask in church for they were of a mysterious nature. I learned to keep that curiosity within me to not cause any conflict with anyone. Thankfully, I cultivated the habit of reading, and the books I was reading were on personal development. They all just fed more the inner desired to know more, to look for the next step.

Divorce brought with itself a set of mixed feelings; fear of facing life on my own with two young children, in a country in which I had no formal education but also, the freedom to live and experience life without someone constantly putting me down. He had his own set of fears and conditioning that at that time, didn't allow either one of us to understand what was happening. We cause each other a lot of pain.

The next comfort zone I left was religion. Many of my friends could not understand why, my children and family questioned me constantly but I knew that to find what I was looking for, I had to move away from that circle. I loved my church group and that experience had brought me so much joy for so many years but after reading “The Power of Your Sub-Conscious Mind” a book by Dr. Joseph Murphy I just knew there was so much out there I wanted to experience. So I ventured out.

Two years after my divorce, the father of my children passed away, adding stress to our already stressful life.

During all this time I have received different certifications:

  • In 2003 as a Spiritual Instructor in Zinapécuaro, Michoacán, Mexico. My great mentor as a spiritual instructor has been great spiritual teacher and dear friend Michael Dukes from the Dynamic Living Process.

  • In 2005 I discover the Teachings of Abraham and since then I have loved applying and teaching Abraham's Art of Allowing and Emotional Guiding System.

  • In 2006 I received my Reiki Master/Teacher attunement by Reiki Master/Teacher Carlos Gonzalez in El Paso, TX.

  • In 2007 I had an Energetics Assessment both basic and advance with spiritual teacher Charles Nunn

  • In 2008 I received certification on AVESA Quantum Healing through Wisdom Teacher Sri Ram Kaa and Angelic Oracle Kira Raa in Albuquerque, NM.

  • In January 2011 I was ordained as an Acharya (Bishop) in the Mahajrya Buddhist Tradition by Buddhist Bishop Maha Vajra in El Paso, TX.

Early on in my spiritual path, I was given the opportunity to travel with a group of personal development instructors. I had the chance to teach in different parts of Mexico and the United States. Always sharing from personal experiences. Guiding others to heal their own emotional wounds. I was with this group for over 4 years.

Yet another twinkling feeling started to show. This group was not as open to learning different techniques to experience healing, they seemed to want to limit people to only their way, this to me seemed too dogmatic. I was asked to stop meddling in other teachings or leave... so I left.

I have been very committed to a path of Self-Mastery, but I was still missing something... then I met the master!

I met Master Maha Vajra in January of 2009. In physical time frame, it wasn't too long ago, if measured in evolution, it has been life times.

Spiritual Master Maha Vajra is a true master of creating experiences for fast growth. The high level of consciousness of a realized Master can elevate those around him/her, but the more ego we have, the more intense it is while next to them.

Maha put me through many experiences that at the moment felt hard but through those experiences I was able to grasp the wisdom of many things I had just understood at a mental level. He was exactly what I had been searching for. To have found him was a blessing that took a while to appreciate.

It still is wonderful to be in his presence and receive the wisdom that flows through him.

Ultimately, all this life experiences had led me back to that original question at 6 years old... Where are you God? All the teachers and events were just inspiration to help me want to go "in" to find the love I am, the God, Source, Creator. Every day I remember that the most important thing is to remain conscious of that Source and I do that through all my daily responsibilities as a mother, friend, teacher, healer, and citizen of this planet. Once I connected to Source, I laughed and cried and realized I didn't have to do anything, when I am connected....Stuff happens!

Teaching and healing happens simply because of staying connected to God.

About My Healing & Teaching Practice

This started as a home based center and Temple. I created "the Reiki Room" for private sessions and my home was blessed as a Temple and received the Amitabha Buddha Consciousness to be a blessing to all those that would come here for a class or a healing session. I am now providing healing & teaching in other venues to make myself more available.

My website name was chosen to indicate the desire I have of helping you become aware that, "learning to heal from within" is possible and achieved through classes, energy healing, spiritual counseling sessions or coaching sessions. Once you learn that the "Healing Center" is within you, you will have an immense source of happiness.

I am here to support those that feel unheard, left out, afraid of asking the "forbidden questions", those that need to cry and then laugh, those that need to know it's ok to be different because they hear or see things that others don't, or different because you don't and are wondering how to do that. No matter what your situation is, I have created a place that is safe to be you, to help you understand as I did that the source we call God is in us and experiences through us.

I am here to serve your soul, following the guidance of my spiritual Guides, both physical and non-physical. I am here as someone that has experience many challenges and I extend my hand to you in support.

Because of how my life turned out, I didn't have a formal education, but the Universe had another “university” for me and has granted me the ability to heal and teach, a responsibility I take very seriously and for which I am both humble and grateful. I was told by my spiritual guides while receiving my 3rd Reiki attunement, that in this life time, my sword would be my tongue, that I would use this tool to liberate many. I intend to do that.

I sincerely hope to be of service to you in some way, at least to recommend a book or a local meditation school.

In loving respect of your Soul’s Journey,

Shanti Bhum
