Ryen Blaschke, MA
Originally from Oregon and California, I currently reside in Longmont, Colorado. I am both an empath and academic with a lifelong connection to the power of subtle energies, as well as a fascination for human growth and development. I hold a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies and Transpersonal Psychology and am a certified Psychospiritual Life Coach from the Graduate Institute of CT, as well as a certified Psychic Medium from the Holistic Studies Institute of NY. I also am a regular attendee of the Arthur Findlay College of Mediumship Development in Stansted, England.
My Journey – As a multi-faceted being with a love for our planet, animals, and creative expression, I began my undergraduate studies in wildlife biology and environmentalism, as well as photography and mixed media art. Ending up with a BA in Fine Art, I made my way to NYC to pursue a career in fashion styling, continuing for over 10 years. Despite accomplishing a goal of finding career success within a highly competitive field, my soul knew deep down that I had a much bigger purpose.
In 2016, out of deep curiosity and joy, I sought to formally develop my intuitive abilities while still pursuing my fashion career, not knowing that it would eventually call attention to a deep misalignment of my soul’s path. I attended the Holistic Studies Institute of NY and was taught by some of NYC’s finest and most recognized mediums. In that time, I began to awaken to the intuitive abilities and sensitivities within me that I had been conditioned all my life to ignore and fear. I began to expand as a spiritual being and develop a deeper connection with spiritual forces in ways I always knew to be possible within my heart, but had been conditioned to believe otherwise.
In 2017, I underwent several upheavals and losses in my personal life. Fortunately due to a newfound connection with spiritual dimensions and my intuition, I allowed myself to surrender completely to the universe and to my healing process. Shortly after, I felt called to go out into nature and camp solo for the first time, which had been both a lifelong goal and fear of mine. During my time camping alone in the woods of New England, I underwent a sudden awakening in which I was brought to remember many parts of myself that I had unconsciously been neglecting for years.
I saw my life flash before me and realized that I had slowly lost touch with myself and my higher path for over a decade. I realized that I been conforming and constraining the wholeness of my being into conventional roles, a narrow career path, and to the hustle of commercial career success. I realized that I had slowly lost unconditional love and acceptance of myself and was looking for approval everywhere outside of myself. In result, I had been unknowingly performing false versions of myself in order to find outside acceptance, belonging or worth. From this realization, I left my life and career in NYC, and went on to solo travel around the world for the majority of a year. I traveled across Africa, the UK, Scandinavia, and Europe and saw places and did things I had longed to do my whole life. It was in that time that I began to rediscover all the parts of myself that had been lost, and discover new parts of myself that I never knew existed.
Through exploring the vast and varied beauty of the planet during my travels, I reunited with my passion for the earth, my passion with life, and with living fully with presence and awe. I began to reunite with the love and acceptance for all parts of myself and the deep love and compassion for others. I reunited with my love of nature as well as nature photography, and spent most of my time photographing the landscapes of 16 countries. I discovered a love of spontaneity and adventure by allowing my intuition to guide the direction and flow of my travels. I learned for the first time in my life how to let go and find a sense of being, after so much doing, controlling and striving. I found unbounded joy and bliss by allowing my heart and soul to lead, instead of following the narrow focus of my mind. During these travels, I was gifted nameless synchronicities, experiences and insights that ignited the seeker within me. I began to grow more curious about what it is was that I was experiencing during my travels, as well during my experiences as a medium and empath.
After my travels, I returned to the east coast and continued my journey of understanding and truth seeking. I sought out to learn more about the human psyche, our world, spiritual dimensions, and of consciousness itself as the center of it all. I then began a graduate program in Consciousness Studies and Transpersonal Psychology from the Graduate Institute of CT, leading to my masters degree and psychospiritual coaching accreditation.
Today, I continue to journey deep on a path of spiritual re-connection, re-alignment, expansion and self discovery with commitment and passion. I enact my deeper purpose of helping others awaken and heal, and believe it is the key to awaking and healing our planet. It is for this reason that I am passionate about helping others connect to the truths of their deepest self, their innate spiritual connection and abilities, their many parts and gifts, and their soul’s true calling.
“Awaken Yourself, Awaken the Planet”
My goal is to offer both holistic counseling and spiritual development and guidance to help align you to your highest potential, purpose and path. I want to help support and guide your soul self to fully awaken alongside the healing and expansion of your human experience so that both can work towards thriving in ultimate harmony.
As I’ve continued to deepen my connection to spiritual dimensions over the last several years, I have deepened the connection to myself, to life and to the source within it all. I am listening and responding to my soul’s calling and to the calling of our greater consciousness. I feel no greater joy than to be of service to my community, to the planet, to the animals, to the spirit world, and to the waking up and alignment to consciousness on this planet. I am committing myself as a fellow human, light being, friend, family member, and loved one to help lift you up to your highest potential, fulfillment, alignment, connection to yourself, to your path, and to the source within you. I am here to listen, love, support, connect, guide and honor you. I do this alongside you as your equal, not as a guru, not in hierarchy, not as anyone out of alignment with you on a soul level, but as a fellow being learning and growing with you.
I am passionate about supporting and empowering you through your healing journey as well as and connecting you with the vast wonder and wisdom of consciousness and the spirit world. I am here to help you feel directly guided, connected, loved and supported. I believe that everyone I have had the blessing to work with, was brought to me for a reason and I welcome each opportunity as a gift.
Outside my work, I enjoy spending time in nature, as well as photography, solo travel, art, music, animals, queer community, environmental activism, social justice and animal advocacy.

“I’ve had the opportunity of being coached with Ryen since 2019. Ryen has helped me so thoroughly along my spiritual journey. Lots of healing & lots of crying with more and more self-love in return. Ryen has been a great assistance in transforming me into the greatest version of myself.” – Adedeji – NY, NY
“Ryen has been a lighthouse during my spiritual awakening process. Despite the fact that we reside in opposite hemispheres, she is readily available and able to tune into my guidance system and deliver the messages I need to hear from the divine. I am so thankful we have crossed paths.” – Sian – Durban, South Africa
“I’ve been working with Ryen for about a month, and I am blown away by my progress. Ryen is grounded, focused, and has a great intuition for how carefully excavate the dark places, bringing light and awareness, connection and catharsis. I came to Ryen looking to find my center, and while my work is far from done, I have already found steady footholds in my spiritual and emotional life. I heartily recommend Awaking Self.” – Audrey – Eugene, OR
“Ryen is amazing. She is present and inquisitive and her intuition is on point. If you are looking for guidance in your life, Ryen is a perfect choice.” – Sawyer – Olympia, WA
“I find Ryen to be an incredibly gifted coach. Her approach is gentle and allows you to softly open while guiding you toward the path of your innate wisdom. Ryen also has a remarkable ability to tap into her intuition which she uses to provide deep and meaningful insights. Every time I am coached by Ryen I gain a deeper understanding of myself and my path of healing. I highly recommend!” – Catherine – New Haven, CT
“Ryen is a special soul, who is very intuitive and know how to guide her clients to work inward and find ways towards their goals. With her guidance I was able to do parts works with enough Self energy that she helped and guided me on how to access. I’m very grateful to her for the work we did that had a wonderful result in my emotional and spiritual life.” – Silvana – Farmington, CT
“I met Ryen a couple of years ago in another line of work. She was always a person I liked to be around and had a really lovely calm and kind presence. I had for years wanted to work with a psychic medium and intuitive guide to help settle some of my past, but was ambivalent about sitting down with a stranger. I had my first reading with Ryen. I was surprised by the loved ones I connected with, but more so was surprised by the intuitive guidance, which at the time didn’t make a lot of sense, but came came together for me in the weeks that lay ahead. Ryen made the first step in this journey accessible for me in a way that opened a new door for me spiritually.”– Sarah – NY, NY
“Ryen supported my partner and I through the passing of our beloved dog Steve. She was able to give us valuable insight into how he was feeling while he was going through some health problems. Even though he was seeing the vet regularly, since he couldn’t really talk to us hearing from him through Ryen gave us peace of mind. She also helped us sort out some tension between Steve and our other dog while Steve was sick. Ryen is very compassionate and intuitive and has a great connection with animals. Thank you, Ryen!”– Aubree – LA, CA
“I was somewhat skeptical about this process as a whole, but I’ve known Ryen for years and therefore trusted her skills. She was humble about her abilities and never pretended she had any answers, only connections. She addressed my concerns (fearful dog with abusive past) and tuned in accurately to both his physical and mental issues (bringing up things about him that are not visible in pictures). I know Ryen to be both calm and caring, allowing me to laugh at parts of the process I didn’t understand. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a window into things we cannot see on our own.”– Rachael – LA, CA
“When I was introduced to Ryen from a mutual friend, he told me she was one of his favorite human beings.
Agreed, Ryen is authentic and the real deal.
I had 2 readings around the same time for my beloved dog, Ryder. The first reading was more general so when Ryen was able to pinpoint his health concerns and some behavioral patterns, it was super helpful and comforting to hear.
I highly recommend Ryen and can’t wait to connect with her again.”– Lulu – NY, NY
“I came to Ryen because my Ridgeback was sick, mostly diarrhea and it was going on for a while, the vet couldn’t find anything despite the tests, and exams.Ryen was able to determine what he needed, she had great insight about his diet, and gave other wonderful advice.The session also revealed that T was scared of one of my spirit guides, whose presence he wasn’t used to. Once I officially introduced him to the spirit he was fine. The diarrhea disappeared as well, after a few days.” – Corinna – NY, NY
