If you have found your way to Joan Marie’s website/newsletter than you will probably understand my story. I have been on a journey – a search for who I am – for the past twenty years, most of my adult life. I was consumed by self-doubt, confusion, pain and unhappiness. I have studied, listened to lectures, been to therapy, counseled with friends, read the works of many great minds, and while it all has helped — I still felt an emptiness that has affected everything in my life. To feel so lost, yet putting on a smile and going through the motions as a wife and mother of two, was wearing me out and down. I felt like I was drowning AND asleep at the wheel. But even at my lowest, I always knew there was something more in me and that I had so much more to give. So, as I’m finding out how life works, when I was finally in a place when I was ready for it, the Universe spoke to me. I was introduced to Joan Marie by a friend of mine, who I don’t see very often. We met for coffee one morning and I noticed a change about her, a peacefulness I hadn’t seen before. Of course I had to ask, and she told me all about Joan Marie and her programs.

Needless to say, I felt in my friend something that I wanted and needed for myself, and coincidentally, a 6 month group program was about to begin the next week. Talk about the Universe speaking to me fast and furiously! This time, I finally chose to listen. So, very uncharacteristically of me, I jumped in before I had a chance to “think” my way out of it. One conversation with Joan Marie assured me that I was ready for this (well, I still had a ton of doubts, but I ignored them!). I have not regretted it since. I am in a group program with several other people and it has changed my life. Its like getting all my life lessons rolled into one — but in a very powerful group dynamic. Its unlike anything I have ever experienced before. As we are still in the process of it, I cannot tell you how this story “ends”, but I can tell you that my life is finally beginning. Joan Marie’s wisdom, powerful intuition and vibrational energy/life force has worked to “raise” me again. Properly, this time, with love and compassion. And she’s no push over either – she tells it to you straight (from the Universe!) – which I love and appreciate! With the help of her equally powerful mom, we affectionally call, Joan Marie Mom, and the others, I feel like I am finally getting the proper guidance to do the real work I need to do to heal my inner wounds and break open to the real me and become the woman that I am meant to be. It has been a miracle. There is no other way of saying it. To touch and unravel a heart that has been as tight and closed as mine, is a miracle. And I thank God, the Universe, my friend, my Self, for leading me to Joan Marie Whelan. As I tell my group/my family, I am a very grateful work in progress and I am feeling more alive than I have ever felt in my life.

I have done some private work with Joan Marie and most recently completed her 3 month bridging class. When she mentioned that she would like to do another 3 month program for women, I knew immediately without question that I would be a part of it. This lead me to ask myself, ” Why? Why am I so quick to make this decision and what are the measurable differences that have occurred in my life, that make my decision so strong?”

Before our bridging class, I was living (barely) paycheck to paycheck, running my own business and as a single mom with two children I felt like I was running myself into the ground physically and emotionally. The pattern of abuse that had been set in my childhood was repeated in my marriage and was still being carried out daily because it was what I thought I deserved for myself. The emotional blocks that I saw as my “comfort zone” we’re keeping me paralyzed with fear and stuck in stagnation and mediocrity; meanwhile I was not fully aware of WHY I felt so tired and stuck all the time.

Joan Marie has helped me identify the patterns of my life and their origins, releasing them without blame and shame. She has taught me the power of manifestation and being effective with my feelings. In the last two months my business has almost doubled, I’ve secured the home I’ve been wanting for years and I have grown to love who I am as a person, more then I thought possible.

Looking back on my life a year ago, I am so proud of how far I’ve come. The more I learn, the more I’m aware that I have so much more to learn. This has been the hardest work I’ve ever done and I’m thankful to have Joan Marie leading me in the process. She has been my north star when I had no sense of direction.

How prepared are you?

Posted by Intuition Girl

The Scouts got it right a long time ago when they enlisted the motto, “Be Prepared.” By being prepared, your body, mind and spirit are always in a perpetual state of readiness. Now that does not mean that you need to be so worked up and anxious worrying about something horrific waiting at every bend – it simply means that you have the mindset to be ready and willing to take charge of a situation by creating alternative choices for yourself. Being prepared also means that you are ready to face any challenge by understanding what it is you need to do and how to do it.

A prime example of “being prepared” was demonstrated perfectly in the Miracle on the Hudson in 2009. 155 passengers all survived what could have been a fatal crash landing on the Hudson River; but the calm Captain “Sully” Sullenberger was mentally and physically prepared to do what it took to save life and limb.  Sullenberger was later quoted as saying,” One way of looking at this might be that, for 42 years, I’ve been making small regular deposits in this bank of experience: education and training. And on January 15, the balance was sufficient so that I could make a very large withdrawal.” Do you have a sufficient balance of experience, education and training from which to extract should the time arrive?

Of course the vast majority of us will never be involved in such a near-calamity as that as the good Captain Sully, but we may have other life circumstances creep up on us unawares. No future is written in stone and that is why it is vital to your health and wellbeing to be prepared for whatever roadblock or difficulty arises.  Think of it in a more simplistic way: If you are in the process of entering into a legally-binding contract, do you dot your “i’s” and cross your “t’s”? What I mean by that is are you making certain that no stone is being left unturned? Are you reading, re-reading and understanding the fine print?

When you invest your time in a new work project, are you conducting a pre-mortem? What’s that, you ask? A “pre-mortem” is a checklist of all the things that could go wrong during and after final production. So if you are a manufacturer and you have engineered a new type of vacuum cleaner, did you take into account all the components and how they could interact with other materials? How about trustworthiness? Is your new product going to be reliable and do everything as promised?  The same holds true for matters of health, heart, home and relationships in general.

I do not want you to start beating yourself up and thinking that you need to worry about every single detail, but it is important to focus on the big picture and what missing details may be critical to your overall success. For instance, if you were going to participate in a marathon, would you go without training for months and eat all the foods that are wrong for your body? Absolutely not. Of course you know better than that. You have to be prepared both mentally and physically to be in the right state of mind and shape to take part in such an event.

How does being prepared affect love? Oh yes, that’s a good question! When opportunity presents itself, are you ready to effectively communicate with a potential significant other or are you going to rely on old and outdated pickup lines? Be prepared. Be prepared.

In the end, you do not have to be Captain Sully – all you must be is yourself and understand that life happens. We all experience our equal shares of ups and downs. It is in your life choices and life-preserving measures, however, which will ultimately be the decisive factors as to whether you fail or succeed.

Until we speak again, I am

Life Lessons well Spent

Posted by Intuition Girl

In a day and age where technology appears to rule the day and the sky is virtually the limit in what we can achieve, I often find that young adults seem to have the most difficulty adapting to their new roles in life. Once young men and women get past raging hormones, acne and the feelings of peer acceptance – they are often still overwhelmed by the challenges and uncertainty of the times. It is easy for those of us, ripened with time and experience, to wonder how these feelings of lack and overwhelm can be so prolific in our youth. But given the nature of our socioeconomic environment, it is really no wonder at all. In fact, our high school and college graduates face a tough housing and job market.  To them, everything is not as clear cut as it may have been for ourselves and those who came before us.

Ever heard that old adage about earning a degree at the College of Hard Knox?  Those are some of the best life lessons well spent. For those of us who have been there, we might have some words of wisdom to share. We have seen and experienced what curve balls life can throw our way. Because of the encounters  that many of us have experienced in the past, we just might be the perfect mentors to our youth during these difficult times if they are willing to listen to our words about the life lessons that we have faced. I am sure there are many wise people who have sound advice to offer those who need it the most.

So how do we help them create an attitude of gratitude even when the chips are stacked against them? Though it is an easy question to ask, the answer is not always so straightforward. That is when your life lessons can come in handy. In a lot of cases, you or someone you know may have faced a similar situation when the burdens of life just seemed too much to bear. How did you or another individual make it past the hurdle? What mental and proactive strategies did you employ to overcome these trials? Remember, there are no “right” or “wrong” answers…only suggestions to help mentor those who need it. Teaching an attitude of gratitude – no matter what the circumstances may be – is the definitive sentiment to encourage in these desperate times.

Timing is also always the key. Knowing when to say something is equally as important as lending the guidance itself. Obviously, you need to search for body signals to determine the most appropriate time to speak with the young adult(s) in your life. Deep inside that mind is a battle of the wits. S/he is still trying to gain her/his footing as to where s/he is, where s/he wants to be, and ultimately, how s/he is going to arrive there. If you jump too quickly, you may feed her/his fear. If you wait too long, s/he may simply give up.

Wait for an opportune time to share your own life stories – not to dismiss the real emotions and experiences of the young adult in your life – but to make them aware of the fact that s/he is not the only one going through such adversity and tough times. Help her/him to understand that there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel; and that no matter what life hands her/him, s/he will come out of it okay if s/he is willing to go the distance and appreciate the blessings that s/he has in the here and now.

In the end, we are merely the watchtower in the bay. We can offer light and a pathway. The journey, however, is for the young adult alone to pave. These will be (her/his own) life lessons well spent.

Your Intuition is your Inner Compass

Posted by Intuition Girl

Have you ever taken a good look at a compass? It is typically round and is used as a directional guide so that you can distinguish which way is north, south, east or west. Without a compass, you could easily get lost in the elements.

Generally, you have an idea of where you have to go and memorization habitually lets you find your way to the store, to work, to the gas station, and even simple places like the bathroom or living room in your house. Your directional compass aids you in locating various spots all around you.

But you also have an internal compass that acts as your intuition; your inner steering wheel, which guides your conscious and sub-conscious moves in your life. How does it work, you ask? Similar to your memory compass, your intuitive compass compels you to act or react in certain situations. For instance, if an opportunity or challenge presents itself to you, your inner compass will guide you to respond in one way or another. If you have finely-tuned your intuition through meditation and other mind training, your inner compass is ultimately going to lead you in the appropriate direction. So, if a sudden job prospect opens up to you (among other potentialities) you will be both mentally and emotionally prepared to step up to the challenge; or in some cases, stay the course. How would you respond at this moment, for instance, if a friend knocked on your door and asked you if you’re ready to take on a better position at his company? Or, what if the object of your desires suddenly approaches you with a proposal of love? Are you ready to be responsible for what it is you truly want?

Let’s go a bit deeper…what if I told you that you may have been living an illusion? In truth, most of us have constructed an illusion to disguise our authentic self, our authentic being, the truth of who we are –after all, it is easier to put on a veil to cover up our bottled emotions, our fears, our sorrows and our regrets, among others. But as you begin to unlock your hidden power of your inner compass, you begin to enable your intuition to lay the groundwork for you so that you can set the foundation for your authentic success.

Think of it this way: if you can train your mind to memorize the places that you visit day in and day out without fail, imagine how well you can set the coordinates for your inner compass to generate and attract love, happiness, health, wealth and prosperity! Now is the perfect time for you to set your inner compass to the field that you can magnify the most: your success.

What’s that you say? There’s no one you need to forgive? Forgiveness is a powerful topic that so few even dare to talk about but the truth is every one of us needs to take the time to go within and look at the word “forgiveness.” FORGIVENESS is actually about giving to yourself. It’s about giving love and nurturing and creating freedom. In my upcoming free teleclass I’m going to give you great tips and tools to help you go within and just give. Give what you need for yourself at a much greater level than you ever thought imaginable. And during that free teleclass, I am going to share information with you about the five-week teleclass series that I’m offering on forgiveness. Isn’t it time to peel away the layers to get to the core of understanding, compassion, friendship of self, and who knows what’s possible from there…
