Hi, I’m Summer McStravick.
For two decades, I’ve been practicing a technique for almost surreal-level manifesting and potent inner healing that I *accidentally* pioneered more than 20 years ago.
Somewhere along the way, my technique—Flowdreaming—collected quite a few followers (over 180,000) who whispered to their friends, referred their clients, and generally just blew Flowdreaming up into the unexpected phenomena it is today.
I’m so grateful. I had never intended nor foreseen this.
See, 20 years ago, I worked full-time with two little babies at home. I was in charge of a big division of a big corporation where I built hayhouseradio.com, started some of the first podcasts and webinars the world had seen, and took home 5-star performance reviews every year at Christmas. I also had Louise Hay (You Can Heal Your Life) as my boss and was co-hosting a weekly radio program with Dr. Wayne Dyer. I got to build programs for people like Suze Orman, Gregg Braden, Marianne Williamson, and Jerry and Esther Hicks (Abraham). Life was good.
But life did change. I was unexpectedly fired from my dream job. I developed a painful inflammatory disease.Then I got Stage 2 breast cancer at a stupidly young age, which had unfortunately spread and left me with sterility, lifelong numbness, and other permanent complications. In fact, I then lost a great number of people I love to cancer. And, my children grew and left home.
In other words, lots of things that tear through people’s lives…also tore through mine. Yet Flowdreaming was still there. It’s a practice, a devotion, a modality for healing and a life-changing manifesting practice.
Today, I own my own multi-million dollar company.
I work from home, set my own hours, and teach where (and who) I want to teach, living with both time-freedom and financial freedom with my husband of 26 years. I’m more successful than I ever dreamed I’d be. And so are thousands of clients I’ve coached and mentored, and thousands more whom I’ve never even spoken with. Life has flowed exactly the way it should have.
I began “coaching” twenty years ago. Except we didn’t really call it that back then. Then, I was being a “mentor” and a teacher. I was translating my intuitive observations, unique mindset, and life experience into paths… potentials… direction… and breakthroughs…for the people who came to work with me. Think of your ultimate great-aunt-type (or fairy godmother) comfortable in both science and spirituality about how to do things if you want to get things done. Finally get through this thing, past this thing, see who you really are and fricking break through.
I said to them, “I’ll read you and your Flow, and we’ll get to the heart of this and fix, it, heal it, grow it, change it, or uplevel it…. whatever you need.
And so we did that, for session after session. Thousands of them.
I became a very good “observer from the outside” who could quickly and clearly see the inside—of both you and of many things.
Because my passion has always involved manifesting, I spent most of these decades teaching people how to make spectacular shifts and growth come true by working with Flowdreaming, mindset, and energy. But I spent equal time communicating with their deeper selves, the souls of people they loved, and even things like workplaces. In other words, I read minds and places just as easily. So when you ask what I do, well, that’s what I do.
Somewhere along the way I wrote books, created over 38 courses, traveled the world lecturing, and recorded 850 podcast episodes.
I am, as you’d say, productive.
For a long while, I had a very “yada-yada I did this, I did that” bio here for you to read. But now I don’t. (Well, technically, it’s still up here for the press.)
If you really want to know me, though, you’ll dip into one of my books, or take yourself through some of my Flowdreams or courses, or listen an eye-grabbing title of a podcast episode.
If you were lucky enough to discover M.E. School, well that was my boutique mystery school that lit my heart. I ran it for ten years. Then I wrote a book about it. I stopped it since it’s now time to write a book that teaches my daughter who our family is.
All that’s interesting, but you and I know there’s more to me.
It’s awkward to write a formal (or even informal) bio. But here are a few things that’ll either make you like me more, or tell me, “Hold your tea, lady.🫖 I won’t be back…”
<<I‘m a Southern California girl head-to-toe. I live a mile from the beach (my surfing days are long over, sadly) but so much of Flowdreaming was marinated in this idea of ebb and flow, tides in tides out, wax on wax off.>>
<<Speaking of Karate Kid, you know I love those 80s vibes. Yes, I clomped around high school in black Dr. Martens BEFORE they were available in the US. I got mine from the UK, right, ya poser??😂>>
<<I’ve been ridiculously into plants since I was a kid. Call me a plant witch, I’ll take it. I put little stakes with my plants’ Latin names and birth dates all through my property (oh, that’s my Virgo coming out.) They like me and my plants wind up through trees and into my windows with wild abandon.>>
<< The first of my careers was opera. I left high-school in 10th grade (either dropped out or graduated early, depends on my mood when I’m telling it) to study at the college level after being recruited by a local professor. I was a coloratura soprano. My almost-dying-from-a-health-misdiagnosis broke that spell. And while I returned to music later in life, it wasn’t the same.>>
<<I’m a 4th+ generation intuitive and medium. My great-great grandmother and great-grandmother lived in the dust bowl of the U.S. plains, doing astrology in the 1800s. My grandmother read tea leaves, practiced self-taught acupuncture (on me! 🤷♀️), and communicated with her guides through automatic writing. My mother still practices intuitive mediumship today, at 78. I’m the first-born and oldest daughter of the first-born oldest daughter back to 7 generations that we have found. My even-older ancestor escaped the Salem Witch Trials by breaking out of jail and leaving on horseback in the deep night. When I was 15, I was given an induction in to the magical arts by a set of lovely crones I still remember, though have sadly lost touch with today.>>
<<There was a time when I really wanted to seem smart. So I went to UC San Diego and graduated summa cum laude, which means the in top (.05%) one-half-of-one-percent in my whole school. Too bad I never used my degree, but I sure felt badass getting it. LOL.>>
<<I have very few photos of me as a child, and those that I have are fuzzy Instamatic Kodaks that developed poorly with funky splotches. All that talk lately about boomers not really paying attention to Gen Xers? Um, yup.>>
<<You’d probably like going to a party with me. That is, if you don’t mind that friend that says the awkward cringy true thing by accident and only has mild remorse later. And who has more than one glass of wine and does stupid dancing (sorry) while telling you that you absolutely have not gained any weight (shuddup!). And who may then read the thoughts of a random friend, stranger, or even you if you ask me to.>>
Now, for any more than that, well, you know where to find me.😉
