“The channeling and automatic writing class with Janet StraightArrow is a blast and truly transformative. I felt myself open up tremendously as I immediately was able to channel beautiful messages from my heart. Throughout the class, I was able to break through barriers and limitations that were blocking me in my writing and in my life. Each participant that day was able to recognize more clearly what personally holds us back from not only putting pen to paper but also from experiencing more of our potential. Janet provided us with advice, techniques, and practices we can use every day to become more open and receive divine guidance along the way. Answers I have been seeking are now pouring out of me and I am able to write more freely than I ever have before, while feeling more connected and clear as well. I am very pleased and deeply thankful with the opportunity to have taken that class with Janet and recommend it to anyone who is interested in exercising their creativity and practical ways to access YOUR SOUL and TRUTH! Thank you again for not only offering this class to me but also thank you for teaching at all! You are changing lives and mine! Your energy is very calming and beautiful.” Alexandria Torna

“Janet StraightArrow is a precious treasure; a rare individual who knows the truth, speaks it and most importantly lives it herself.  She emanates divine love, which touches the souls of all who are open.  Her specialty is the process of healing, which leads to the remembrance an embodiment of one’s whole self. As a result, health is restored, relationships flourish and the mind becomes clear. I have never met anyone as extraordinarily wise, honest and compassionate as Janet.  Yet, despite her immeasurable worth and abundance of energy, she is very humble and patient. When I thought I had lost myself forever the universe led me to Janet StraightArrow and Be The Medicine. The process I was given was simple, efficient and as I soon came to learn: completely revolutionary.  Janet is visionary, light years ahead of this world but lovingly here to teach us how to bridge the gap.  If you are ready to invest in an abundant life filled with constant health, happiness, truth, beauty, and light, look no further as StraightArrow will show you the way. “ Ariana L.

Janet’s healing and soul retrieval helped me to achieve a level of inner peace and gratitude that I never thought possible after traditional therapy for childhood trauma got me only to a certain point. The tools she gave me and the things she taught me have continued to change my life.

 “…I have found in working with Janet an inner peace and love that I did not seem to have before. The one thing that is especially true is that I felt comfort and trust with her and felt she is working from a “good place” on this planet, and her intentions are true. I found her to have “no judgments” about people and is very accepting of all and respectful of where people are in their journey. Thank you and I know you will be helpful to many others.”

Fondly, Susan Campbell

“To have a true teacher who can communicate to everyone from different backgrounds the “truth” of “love”, loving ourselves and loving each other is a rare and miraculous gift. Janet knows when you have a question and need to express yourself, even if you might be afraid to. She kindly helps you reframe your words about yourself, your feelings and others to be more aligned with love and truth. What a genuinely amazing experience and teacher.” Claudia Barash Teicher, Yoga Teacher

“I have been working on re-balancing my endocrine system for a number of years. My thyroid continued to stay low until my last visit with my nutritionist. The test results showed my thyroid levels are completely back to normal. Yes, I have been doing a supplement regimen and eating healthy, but I know that the key factor has been working with Janet over the past 5 months. My thyroid returning to balance was not just due to nutrition; it was the recovery of my authentic voice and the healing of unspoken issues in my life.

Through the gentle and profound work with Janet, I have re-traced and re-patterned pieces of my life that were blocking my full expression.  Seeing the effects so clearly revealed at the physical level offers visible proof of the power of this medicine. Working with Janet StraightArrow has been a gift for my life.” Maren Good, Multidimensional Healer, Teacher


“Janet StraightArrow has given me a new strong foundation and filled in many missing pieces I did not even know was needed. Working and learning with StraightArrow took me right to the core and changed my life and improved my healing practice 100%. Be The Medicine teaches you how to be you on all levels.” Thank You, Janet. Glenn Jones, Energy Healer-Teacher

“Janet StraightArrow and Be the Medicine gives healing practitioners tools they can use for their own personal work and also easily integrate into any modality (whether traditional or holistic) to create healing at the deepest levels.” Noemi Paciorek, Psychologist, Speaker, Teacher, Healer

“I am so grateful for the work I have done with Janet and Be The Medicine in sessions and classes. Not only do I feel more comfortable in my body and life, but I also notice how important the work we do is to my profession and ability to be and do more than I knew possible. My gifts and purpose are unfolding with ease. The story of my life is becoming rich with deeper love and experience and losing the drama of my life before this time.

In taking advanced classes of the several modalities I have studied over the years, I see how this inner work I have done with Janet in between segments of my other studies, has moved me light years ahead of my peers in many ways. None of us were aware of the power or possibility of who we are and how much more fully and freely we can learn, experience and live.” Wendy Kreiss-Parkin, Business Owner, Massage Therapist, Channel, Energy Worker



“Janet’s wit and wisdom rescue me from “falling off a cliff” or staying too long in the shadow of despair. She does it with grace and humor well founded in her studies of shamanic history and skill.  She has the innate ability to turn around what I perceive as a negative event and allows me to see the positive opportunity. We both end up laughing and I go forward with positive energy.

She is well read and has suggested several illuminating books to help support my spiritual journey.  Janet does not sugar coat her advice, rather it is “straight” talk and straight to the point.  Her name is not a random choice but reflects a true nature and identity. She does not coddle, but she is kind and compassionate.  The most important characteristic I value in Janet is her uncommon, “common sense” approach and her sense of humor. I believe she has special gifts to guide those who seek a higher truth about themselves and the world we live.  Beverly S. MSN, FNP-C

“I am so grateful for the work I have done with Janet. We have been working together for over 2 years, and during that time I’ve been able to ground myself in a way that had previously been elusive for me. I took classes, tried different modalities, Reiki III, and went to different churches, but none of it was the path to being fully aware, and in tune with myself. I found a lot of great pieces, but I was still not feeling whole. I’ve struggled my whole life with depression, and I’ve searched for spiritual guidance. Just talking with Janet, even on the phone, would resolve anything that was pressing. She has been far more effective than a therapist, mainly because she is so intuitive as well as a profound energetic healer. She also has a high level of professionalism, which is important to me as well. Janet is able to feel what I’m feeling and why, she adds clarity mentally and emotionally, and clears the energy as well, which always allows me to come back to feeling good. I’m more self-reliant and self-loving, and able to build on where I’m at in my life.“Dee Wartenburg, Medical Masseuse, Energy Healer


“I have been involved in self-fulfillment programs for over 20 years, and yet it has been since my work with Janet that I have been able to delve into deeper areas regaining a greater sense of self.  Just last week I learned that by opening my heart was not about giving away a part of me. Through a simple exercise that allowed the duality to dissipate and create the space for compassion to guide the potential for what my heart is now capable of.” Jeff Oras Holistic Dentist

“Janet StraightArrow provides a safe place to become vulnerable. Her love, compassion and laughter show us how to return to living life as a child. Free, happy, whole, she allows you the space to become and remember the truth of the real you. Thank you Janet for walking alongside me on my journey.” Rosemary Schultz, Teacher, Healer, Herbalist

“This healing space is not hard, or fearful, there are gentle transitions that you can feel and sense that is mirrored with your companions-hearing their stories validate you. Your intimate personal struggles are not so different – different faces and places, the essence of being human are shared in a safe space, with no judgment. Janet makes it fun, light-hearted and no big deal. StraightArrow accurately reads where you are and speaks the words that bring insights that change your personal landscape for you and new perspectives about all of the people in your life. Everyone feels included and supported, all of the pieces of the space, place and time are honored.”

“Janet is a midwife who holds each soul in love and bliss helping them to surrender and be known. Every word that flows out touches everyone clearing limiting beliefs rebuilding perfect mental, physical and spiritual health. She is a blessing to all.” Ariana Loizias


“Janet StraightArrow is a guided woman. Her work as a Shaman is astounding. She is also a remarkable healer and teacher. I have gained much healing and enlightenment from working with Janet, she is truly a master Lightworker.”
-Kristin .P. 

Business Owner

“I was hesitant to share my experiences & feelings with anyone even to seek for help; however, from the moment that I met Janet she has a warmth & honesty that allows you to feel safe in sharing & trusting.  After a couple of months, I personally feel I have made more progress than I have in years.  Its one thing to acknowledge what you need to heal for yourself, but it’s an amazing feeling having someone like Janet to guide you on that healing.  She is so connected & intuitive that she can put words to what I’m going through when I cannot express out loud & she is straight to the point about it all.  I feel more at peace & self-empowered after working with her & practicing the tools she has shared with me.  I know it’s an ongoing practice for me, but to have Janet provide a space to share & embrace my growth has been a gift for which I’m extremely thankful.”  Deborah.T.

 “TRIFECTA. Years ago, I found myself in a truly intense “dark night of the soul”.  Everything in my life had fallen apart, I was experiencing profound trauma and I needed healing on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  In my search for help, I came across Janet’s ad in a local publication.  When I saw her photo, I knew she was the one I needed to see. I knew she could help me to heal and to navigate my way out of my current crisis. I’m happy to say my intuition was right on. The healing Janet facilitates is profound.  She addresses all levels—which was truly what I wanted and needed.  For me, psychological counseling is not enough.  There are always many factors and influences contributing to our struggles. She does counsel and does so with equal parts frankness, compassion, and humor—all of which I appreciate!  But her counseling incorporates wisdom and information from many areas: shamanism, astrology, health and nutrition and other healing systems and traditions. Janet also does some of the most intense energy work I’ve experienced.  I now live in California and we do sessions over the phone and I will tell you, the energy healing I receive from her long-distance is as powerful as it is in person. One of the greatest things about sessions with Janet, however, is how she teaches you tools and techniques that you can use to continue your healing. So often, when I’m going through a rough time, I think, “What would Janet do?” Usually, I need to lighten up, do some clearing or shift my energy—all of which I can address with tools learned from her. I am grateful for all she has taught me and all she has given to me over the years.  She is powerful, compassionate and playful—which is quite a trifecta if you ask me! And no matter how black my mood is she can ALWAYS get me to laugh! Janet also doesn’t just talk the talk but she truly walks the walk. She leads by example, sharing much of herself and her experiences when she works with you. There’s always a feeling or an atmosphere that we’re all in this together.  I think that is one of her greatest gifts—and again, I am grateful.” PATT NESS
