Working with Janet

When you work with Janet in sessions or classes, you find her loving presence allows you to be yourself. You may think you know what you will work on and are often surprised that it goes much deeper than you imagined. You may expect her to “do” something and find that as you sit with her, no matter what occurs, you feel lighter, happier, pain-free, and more open. When you leave, your life is forever changed in a positive way.

Janet carries a high level of loving energy that supports your healing of body, mind, spirit, and emotions, and awakens you to your wholeness and soul. Janet’s decades of ongoing study and practice offers an amazing depth and direct answers and results.


Janet is not what you might expect, and that is a good thing. Expectations lead you to limitation. StraightArrow is a soul name given to her. Truth is her energy, her compass, her purpose, and so is happiness.

Sacred is joyful and real. Her lineages are from around the world and her focus is universal. Janet’s work is unique and powerful and focused on waking people up to the true nature of the divine and the world we enjoy this sacred play in.

Janet has big energy of love and light. No pretense just being is what she is about. Sessions and Classes illuminate and heal in ways that unfold naturally and gently.

Much of her Shamanic work is accomplished organically. Janet loves working on the phone, and any way we can connect, heal, learn, and be.

A Shaman is known as one who heals themselves and this is one of the most powerful teachings of Be The Medicine. We can all do this and so much more.

Janet discovered her Shamanic Calling in nineteen-ninety-two while working as a top Realtor who had been studying healing and spirituality for twenty-five years. Her gifts and abilities opened very quickly after that soul awakening.

She followed her inner guidance and pursued extensive research and training with Shamans and Masters in many worldwide spiritual healing traditions and began to heal and teach immediately. Each tradition had so much to offer, and together they answered her questions about healing and living mastery today.

Continual practice and refinement created a healing-teaching work, Be The Medicine, unique, powerful, and straightforward. Her big energy of love, joy, and light offer you compassion, profound healing, with down to earth wisdom. Sessions and Classes illuminate and heal you in ways that surprise you as they unfold naturally.

A Shaman is known as one who heals themselves. This is one of the most powerful teachings we accomplish in Be The Medicine. We can all heal ourselves and so much more. Join the journey.

Janet loves working on the phone, Zoom, and in-person. Call Janet StraightArrow today at (973) 647-2500 and explore possibilities for your growth and healing.
