If you are wanting to POP them bubbles, a great way to start is on our monthly Popping The Crazy Bubble Calls. This is your Safe Haven - a group of open hearted, supportive women. Together we find healing and effective ways to deal with those crazy-making relationships that are hurting your heart and adding drama to your life.
We uncover, de-mystify, unravel, and generally decode the super-secret language of manipulative relationships. And yes, any relationship involving substance abuse or mental illness almost certainly includes manipulation.
We find new, empowering, & freeing ways to deal with manipulative, challenging and negative relationships.
You access your most powerful self and re-align with your passion and possibility by inviting God to heal your heart, mind, and body.
We shake loose the invisible bonds of the past.
Step by step, we will walk through the process of Popping these Crazy Bubbles, together!
What Do We Do?
On this call, we aren't fixing things. We're transforming them.
We're starting from love, not conflict. Loving yourself, loving them, and loving the situation. Does that seem hard to imagine? It may be. That's ok. It takes practice. But it gives you power when you need it. And the process of doing this work extracts you from the conflict and gives you a new way to operate and a new way to win in that "no-win" game. It's a whole new perspective.
Maybe, inside your Crazy Bubble, love and conflict have been all mixed up together. That often happens. It can be very confusing. That's part of what makes a Crazy Bubble crazy -- it's hard to sort out the guilt, frustration, anger and exhaustion from the love, laughter and appreciation. One day things are fine. The next day they're totally not fine. You can't ever seem to win, and then something sweet happens. The resentent builds. The sadness deepens. You're worn out and tired. You can end up feeling stuck and lost. You hang on for those sweet moments.
Is there a way to escape the cycle of guilt, shame, anger and obligation? Yes!
Is there a way to rewrite the rules so you can enjoy life more and find some peace in this crazy-making relationship? Yes!
Is there a way to free up the energy and emotions and time you've been pouring into this relationship, so you can pursue your passions and gifts? Yes!
These aren't simple answers, but they are real answers. Real answers I'd like to share with you on this call.
Who Is Leading These Calls?
Suzanne Tipton Offner, M.S., was blessed to be raised by a Mom with Borderline Personality Disorder, one of the many invisible mental illnesses that are embedded in our society.
While this may not seem like a blessing at first (it didn't seem like one to Suzanne at the time!) she has found many profound silver linings in this challenging past. This amazing path has led her to a beautiful place in her life, where she helps people find healing, peace, and joy as they transform their lives from the inside out and claim their powerful birthrights.
Above & beyond her formal therapeutic training, Suzanne has studied personal development, personal evolution and spirituality in a variety of settings. It is her faith and a rock-solid belief that humans can grow and change that has gotten her past some of the rockier parts of life with her sanity and optimism (mostly!) intact.
And of course it is those rocky times that gave her the compassion and perspective to understand the huge challenges that people face when transforming their lives from the inside out.
Suzanne has a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and is a Certified Master Coach.
Come with a commitment that things will be different.
Know You are Worth It, or want to know that, down in your bones.
The very nature of Crazy Bubbles is shame, silence, covering-over and ignoring. The level to which we blind ourselves to how these relationships have shaped our lives can be a bit mind-boggling. Talking about these dynamics, and hearing from others as they share from their heart, opens up a whole new world of freedom, healing, and frankly, relief! Good news, my peeps! You’re not alone. Other people know and understand. We’ve been there. We don’t judge you. We can do this together.
What are the Deets?
The Crazy Bubble Calls happen on the
4th Thursday of the Month, at 6:30pm
They're normally$387 for the year. But for this special, you can have 3 months for $75.
Why do this for a year? Because real change takes time. Good things grow when we give them the room and attention and love they need. Sometimes you have to dig in deeper to get to the good stuff.
Why start with a 3 month special? So you have some room to make sure this is an awesome place for you to grow.
Can I Just Ignore This and Hope It Gets Better?
Yes. Absolutely. And no one would blame you for it.
I gotta say though, that if it was going to get better on it's own, it probably would have done so already. You're a pretty smart cookie, aren't you? If you knew how to fix this, you'd have done that already. If the other person knew how to fix this, they would've done it already. Because you're just like that.
And if you really don't want to deal with things right now, that's ok too. Sometimes it's too hot or too chaotic to even think about. That's totally fine.
I do want you to ask yourself these questions, though. You don't have to tell me or anyone else the answers. But tell yourself the truth.
"What happens if I don't deal with this?"
"What happens if we keep going down this trail, in this direction, and things don't get better?"
"How is this affecting the rest of my family, especially the ones I'm responsible for?"
"What do I really want?"
I'm asking you these things, not to create guilt or worry, but to pull back that layer of false normalcy and acceptance that all of use to obscure the real pain and frustation that come from Crazy Bubble relationships. We get used to these problems. We learn how to live with them. We think there aren't any options. And THAT is what I will not accept. Not for me and not for you. If you want to leave things as they are, then I will support you. But if you accept them because you feel stuck and don't believe you can have a different life, then I'm here to tell you that's not true. It may FEEL true, but it is not true.
Can Things Really Be Different, Suzanne?
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Did I mention yes? ;-)
It starts with EDUCATION. Learning what keeps a Crazy Bubble in place, and how to extract yourself.
Then you need some TOOLS to rewrite those relationhip rules, and a place to PRACTICE using them.
You need a place to VENT and EXPRESS yourself.
You need to get some deep QUESTIONS answered.
You need some SUPPORT, UNDERSTANDING and LOVE.
And you need to create a VISION of what is possible for you and your family..
When you bring all those ingredients together, some magical things start happening. You start to see things from a brand new perspective. The hidden rules of the game are revealed to you. New ways to play become available. You see how guilt, fear, shame and anger have been used as weapons in a frustrating contest of control. And you feel relief as you extract yourself purposefully from the past performance roles. Now you are FREE to make new choices and pursue new options. You have the strengh and surity to set and hold new boundaries. You have the support to grow your wings and fly.

Yes, the calls are password protected, and only people who are registered to be part of the class can participate. You can participate in the call without sharing your personal story, though I do have to say you’ll get even more from the calls if you share.
It’s important to remember that “not-sharing” is one of the things that keeps a Crazy Bubble going. Taking a limited risk in a safe, protected environment like The Crazy Bubble Calls is a baby step that can produce big results for you as you take your transformative journey of healing, growth and release.
What if I can’t be there? Are the calls recorded?
Yes, the calls are recorded, so you can access them later even if you can’t attend live. To support the privacy of participants, though, the calls can only be accessed on the password protected website, and they cannot be downloaded.
I really, really encourage you to participate live, though, as the discussion period and the Q&A section are two of the most powerful parts of the call. You can’t participate if you’re not there!
This is a personal, heartfelt topic. Can I really deal with this on a call?
Absolutely. In fact, the call gives you just enough separation to be able to calmly and effectively discuss these challenging topics. You’ll be amazed at the quality of discussion we have on these community calls. And you’ll be amazed at how “not alone” you feel when you realize how many other people are dealing with similar challenges and issues.
How long are the calls?
The calls are scheduled to last for 90 minutes, but sometimes we hang around after and keep the conversation going. Cuz it’s that interesting. :-)
How many calls should I attend?
The calls are designed as baby steps, because making small changes over time is my favorite way to produce big results! For this reason, the call subscription is for 12 months. When you first sign up, though, you can do a 3-month subscription to make sure it’s a good fit. And for right now, for early adopters, the price is irresistible!
How do I know if these calls are right for me?
If you are now, or have been in the past, part of a Crazy Bubble relationship, then you don’t want to miss this. By Crazy Bubble relationship, I mean that you love someone who has a mental illness, a substance abuse issue or is strongly manipulative or abusive to you. Some of the mental illnesses you may recognize are bi-polar, narcissism, borderline personality, or depression - though there are many more that can affect relationships, and many undiagnosed folks out there. If a relationship is negative and draining, never gets better no matter what you do, and is manipulative, it might very well be a Crazy Bubble relationship. If you are feeling stuck, frustrated, blamed, used, mis-used, infuriated or consumed by a challenging relationship, you may also want to consider that this may be a Crazy Bubble Relationship.
