LIVE Facebook Chat Event!

Helping you understand how to focus better on you and to understand how to read a sign

Groundhog Day is infamous for the rascally critter’s prediction as to whether or not we are going to have six more weeks of winter. If he sees his shadow and runs inside, get ready for more cold…but if he does not, then warmer weather is on the way! Do you believe in signs? If you do, then you are not alone. In fact thousands of people every day see, hear, read or dream something that they believe to be a sign in their lives. Sometimes people receive these signals as signs of prosperity while others fear them to be ominous ones.  Have you ever gotten a message or some inkling that something is awry or maybe you get a powerful gut feeling about something or someone? Do you follow signs to help you get somewhere and is it actually leading you in the wrong direction?

Wednesday, February 2nd, I will be hosting a LIVE Facebook Chat on my group “Focus on You

9pm EST/6pm PST

Are you going to be there? I will be taking questions about the signals you have encountered in your life and how to use those signs to your best advantage. The “Focus on You” group is open to all Facebook members. I hope you will join me there! Click here to visit and join the group  FOCUS on YOU

Having a Responsible Voice

Posted by Intuition Girl

What are you broadcasting? How is your voice being heard? What does your voice really want to say? While all of us may not be fully aware of it, we have the power inside us to share meaningful dialog and information; and we also have the power to be destructive in the same manner.

In a world that is filled with modern conveyances and one that is rapidly changing at the speed of light, we all too often forget the basis of communication; and that is sharing worthwhile information, thoughts and ideas stemming from the greatest value of all= love. For just one moment, I want you to think about that word: LOVE. Say it aloud to yourself. Do you hear and feel how easy it is to say when it rolls off your tongue?  In fact, when you say it, it tends to calm the heart and mind.

–>What we say and how we respond in conversation and within our relationships can be either helpful or undermine our own growth — both personally and professionally.

How do you speak with others? How do you relate with others? When you are communicating with others, do you take their feelings and their circumstances into consideration? Do you assume that an individual knows what you are thinking? These are all questions you should ask yourself in your mind’s eye before entering into dialog. Many of us do this day in and day out (online and offline) in our social networks, in public, at the office and at home. We forget that the things that we say and do have consequences: one’s actions cause an equal reaction. If you berate or belittle someone with your words or deeds, otherwise meaningful communication is quickly depleted and nothing positive can come of that.

When we employ our conversation and our energies in a positive way by listening as well as conveying the messages we want people to hear and understand, we open the doorway to creativity and deeper levels of communication. In doing so, we begin to exchange positive energies that help us to grow as well as promoting growth in others. What are you doing today to responsibly expand the conversation in your world as well as enriching the lives of others?  What seeds of inspiration can you sew today?

Let me know your thoughts…I would love to hear from you today!

I am always,

Your Intuition Girl, Joan Marie Whelan

When is enough, enough?

Posted by Intuition Girl

There is so much chaos, anger, jealousy and need to hurt others surfacing around the globe that it has caused me to think that it is time for each one of us to step up and say:

“Enough is enough!”

A good example to take to heart was the situation with the 33 miners in Chile who were trapped for 69 days under ground.  That could have been a catastrophic situation but it wasn’t!  Have you wondered why?  These are the simple people of the world who haven’t forgotten their basic common sense values.

It seems to me that these 33 men made a conscious decision to work together, to strengthen each other and to express concern and compassion for one another.  There was no tyranny, no fighting for food, no obvious breakdown of the individual even though I am sure, they all were faced with their own fears, concerns and sense of desperation.  My point here is that these men collectively cared for each other.

Yet every single day we see through the news and social media that individual girls and boys and men and women spend their time insulting, hurting and belittling their fellow man for their personal distorted gratification.

So again I ask you…”When is enough, enough?” When are we going to step in and claim that those who deliberately harm another are viewed as immoral, and lack decent values and principles?  I do not profess that we put them in prison or have that type of punishment because I do not believe it resolves anything.  I do believe, however that we need to step up and say, we do not condone that behavior, we will not accept it or allow it to continue and those who want to foster those negative and toxic traits should be removed from their schools, places of employment and revealed as bad examples.

No one has the right to harm another person.  We should not need laws or rules to follow…only our hearts.

We were all born as good people and we must begin to believe that we can all help each other overcome obstacles and difficult times if we work together, strengthen each other and express concern and compassion for each other.

For it is you and me, the simple people of the world, who need to remember our basic common sense values.

What are your thoughts?  I would love to hear from you.

Many Blessings,  Joan Marie

Personally, I have found texting to be a fast and effective way to shoot a quick message via my mobile phone.  Whether I am on the go or just cramped for time, it gives me the freedom to respond to my emails or to send someone a short note on what I am doing at the moment. I have discovered, however, that mobile to mobile texts, as well as tweets, posts, or modern-day social networking by any other name has taken on a whole new dimension. In fact, texting has become comparable to letter writing and phone conversations. The major difference, of course, is that much of what we text or message online (via blackberry, iphone or the web, etc.) has become a bit broader in terms of particle length, but more hyperbolic in context. This compels me to ask the following question: When is the last time you had a deep and meaningful conversation?

I recognize that modern technology offers us a plethora of ways to communicate and it has given us quick access to information in real time; but it has also dramatically reduced significant dialog. The quality of our conversation has begun to deteriorate because now with all of the social media networks, we are able to initiate a post or tweet with sound bites, YouTube videos, graphics or article links with short op-ed notes.  We can quickly key a little side note stating our thoughts or opinions on a topic and let it ride.  That is perfectly fine but it is also frequently a one-sided conversation. But what happens when we begin demoralizing individuals and throwing out personally offensive tidbits?  It is absolutely acceptable to agree to disagree in a mature chat, but you have to draw the line when it comes to attacking an individual on a personal level.  I have seen a few tweets and posts where I thought, “My goodness, what is that person thinking?”  There is a chat acronym that is written, “TMI” – Too Much Information.  I personally do not want to read about someone’s intimate life in detail. That is the same as airing dirty laundry for the sake of some distorted sense of gratification.

Remember, we are all entitled to our opinions and the First Amendment guarantees that right to American citizens.  We must always take into consideration how our words, deeds or actions can and will affect those around us. Always be prepared to intuitively understand what consequences may unfold when you unleash your opinions, your texts, your messages…each has its own defining moment. Additionally, how you present yourself to the world may not matter much to you, but you have to first matter to yourself so that when you do initiate dialog, you raise the bar not only for yourself but extend an open hand to those around you.
Until we speak again, I am

Communicating with a Soul Mate

Posted by Intuition Girl

Dear Joan,

I’ve been separated from my fiancé and soul mate for a year and a half now. Legal and immigration issues have prevented him from coming back to the US, and this has hit him pretty hard and is suffering what seems to me as depression, although I can’t be sure…it may be some post traumatic stress disorder, or just a complete feeling of wanting to give up fighting because he has not been successful in sorting things out and getting back here with me. We used to speak for hours every day, but these past three weeks, I get brief emails, mostly telling me that he’s not the man I fell in love with, that he doesn’t deserve me, and every day is a struggle marked with brick walls which for him keep getting higher and harder. I want to make plans to see him there, as well as to meet with an immigration lawyer to get the ball rolling on a fiancé’s visa so we can be married and live here happily at last! He has stopped phoning…I continue to email, leave voicemails, and texts, I ask for him to not shut me out and let me help him, but it’s been three excruciatingly painful weeks of no communication. I don’t know what I can do for him. How do I know what he needs from me? Should I continue to communicate and reach out to him as best I can and be patient that he will get some help (as I suggested) and will start to communicate with me again when he is ready? His emails assure me that he is still loves me…here’s his latest email to me:

Baby I am sorry… I find it hard enough to get through each day at the moment…. I am not the person you fell in love with right now… things continually go wrong…. and I keep hitting brick walls at speed…. and at the moment they are getting higher and harder…… your name is on my heart…. you have my heart and you always will… you know that… truly deep down…. and you are now and always will be my best friend… sorry for not letting you be there for me.. that was wrong… so wrong….. I love you now and for eternity darling… oxoxo

Joan Marie, can you give me some guidance as to what I need to do to help him get through this? I want to marry him…he’s my soul mate….but right now he is so lost. Is there still a happily ever after for us? Any assistance you can give me would be more appreciated than you’ll ever know….I need to know what I can do to help him keep fighting and not give up. I thank you for your time and consideration to this request for help.

Most sincerely,

Diane S.

Joan Marie’s Answer

Hi Diane:

I understand your desperation in wanting to help him. I do agree that you should continue to keep reaching out to him. Right now he is feeling hopeless and sad that it is like why bother? What you need to do is ask him to be honest with you: Does he want to be with you? Does he want to come to the states? What is it that he truly wants? You also need to ask him: “Has he made a decision to stay where he is?” He needs to make a decision to say “yes” you are a team and can work through this together or not. Life throws all of us many curve balls. However, if we give up than we have not only lost what we wanted but we gave our power over to the circumstance instead of to ourselves. I believe he needs to be honest with you and be in truth with what he wants.

I feel that the main question to ask him is: Does he want you to move on with out him or figure our how to solve this with him. This you need to know.

When we get into a serious depressed state or when many emotional situations arise in our lives, they happen so that we can learn to deal with them and heal from them as we learn our many valuable lessons. I believe what he is experiencing right now has a purpose—and he is the one who needs to be in truth with who he is and what is his life’s purpose. It is all about him being willing to open up first to himself and then to you and have a platform for open and honest communication. The focus is not on life ending but rather for life beginning at a far greater and deeper level.

We all have the ability to unlock the door and follow the light—if we choose it.

Many Blessings,
