5 Tips on the Art of Forgiveness

Posted by Intuition Girl

Are you stuck in a rut and cannot seem to find the end of the tunnel?  Did you ever think that you might possibly be preventing yourself from moving forward by holding onto past hurts and other emotional baggage?  In my practice, I have met so many clients who truly want to change the course of their direction but simply have no clue on how to proceed. I have found that the initial step to creating wealth and prosperity in life is to first learn the art of forgiveness. Don’t laugh. I mean it. We all hold onto resentful feelings and guilt. We let these emotions take over our daily living and even our entire lifetimes. It’s not easy carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders when you’re trying to climb a mountain.

Let’s discuss five tips that can help you learn the art of forgiveness so you too, can begin to enjoy the fruits of your labor without the added stress of that heavy load you’ve been shouldering. From here on out, I want you to remember the acronym: SILLY

  1. Strategize. With any successful encounter, we have to plan a strategy that works best to benefit our individual lifestyles.  What do you really want out of life? If you are trying to climb the corporate ladder or just want to find peace with a significant other, then you must gear yourself up to meet the task at hand. That means you need to come to terms with your emotions and draw out a plan of action to put those monsters to rest. First, write out all the feelings you’ve been harboring: guilt, anger, frustration, malaise, intimidation, inferiority, low self-esteem, hatred, sorrow… you name it, write it down. Now, look at that list. One by one, I want you to try and recreate each feeling associated with the word you have written. Can’t do it, can you? Good. Next, cross off each word on your list. Breathe in. Smile. That’s the first step.
  2. Implement. Since you’ve crossed off your list of negative emotions, you’ve already made a major step toward realizing your potentiality through forgiveness. Let’s take that and run with it… say aloud to your self: “I forgive myself for ___________ (fill in the blank). My emotions no longer have control over me. I am in control of my life. No words or feelings can stop me from moving forward from this moment onward.”
  3. Learn. We’ve all had past encounters that weren’t always the best experiences. The good news is that when we allow forgiveness in our lives, we are forgiving ourselves and releasing all the negative energies that have infiltrated our daily routines and relationships. Know from your experiences that learning forgiveness is fundamental in creating happiness in life. Whether it’s an old supervisor who seemingly drove you to the brink of insanity, or a past love that may have broken your heart… only you have the power over your emotions. Your boss didn’t make you insane. Your significant other did not break your heart. In all actuality, it was your emotions getting the better of you. So let’s learn from those experiences and know that only you can determine your feelings and the outcome of those feelings.
  4. Love.Ah, love is such a simple four-letter word but it holds such deep and profound meaning in itself. When you forgive yourself, you are honoring yourself and replenishing the love within you. Just as a beautiful rose bud opens to full blossom, you too will open to your full potential when you learn to love and forgive yourself so that you can become the beautiful rose among the thorns that life may toss your way.
  5. You. You are a magnificent living thing. When you focus on yourself and learn that you have so many powerful and wonderful things going for you, you begin to understand the nature of life and how to better cope with negative events and encounters. When you breathe, are you intentionally working to breathe or is your inherent life force doing that for you? Your life force is the central, most significant aspect of your daily life. It keeps your heart pumping, your lungs breathing, your eyes seeing, your nose smelling, your ears hearing… and somewhere in the mix of all these actions is your intuitive consciousness that allows you to see beyond the realm of your physical constitution. Your intuitive consciousness is also a constant. It never waivers. It never falters. But it is there for you and with you. It is that essence of “You” within that when released from the burdens of negativity becomes the abundant source of your very beingness. And it all begins with the art of forgiveness.

Isn’t it time to become SILLY, bask in your uniqueness and just let forgiveness back into your heart so you can be the best you can be? Let me help you take your life journey to the next level by joining me on my upcoming Program on Forgiveness…you have nothing to lose and opportunities to gain!

Stuck and seeking new direction!

Posted by Intuition Girl

Question 1

Hi Joan Marie:

Darling, I’m stuck! I am not feeling very empowered lately— my family is growing up fast, I have given up my job to do something different with my life and I have this nagging voice inside telling me to speak up! What about I haven’t got a clue?

I know I’m asking for a miracle here telling you my story and hoping you will reply to my email soon. I’m not barmy—I’m a middle- aged lady wanting some direction.

Warmest regard
Joanne Barber


Dear Joanne:

Thank you for your honest email. You are anticipating change in your life and of course patience is not always easy. May I suggest that you start writing down your feelings and be sure to include those things that you wish to speak up on. There is a big difference between yelling and being angry and frustrated as opposed to knowing who you are within and moving into your power so that you can express yourself to the best of your ability and feel empowered.

You are a great candidate for my 10- month Coaching Program. For while you grow and discover your true purpose (as you pay attention to the clues); you will also have the opportunity to receive a Certification in Professional Intuitive Life Coaching (PILC). I feel your need and desire to assist others; and what better way to serve other than to inspire those who possibly are experiencing the same disconnect as you. I am sure they would benefit from the knowledge gained by you—it first starts with you removing the blocks that bind you—from the inside out. For more information on the program you can go to: or call the office.

Many Blessings, Joan Marie the gift

Tapping into the Power of Your Source

Posted by Intuition Girl

Question 1

November 19 Newsletter - jmw-calm-and-peace-imageHow do I tap into the power of my Source so I can, as you say, dance my way through life? I have been fighting most of my life but I do not want to fight any longer? I guess I am looking for peace in my life? If you can answer this question, I would be most grateful.

Samuel J.


Hi Samuel:

November 19 Newsletter - jmw-man-meditating-imageThe greatest statement you said is “I am looking for peace in my life”. The truth is you have peace inside of you; all of us do. All we have to do is remember how to tap into that gift. So often we ignore peace by focusing on the things that are not working or what we do not have. Many times as a default we tap into our confusion, or our fear or panic and we forget what is really inside of us.

In order to tap into your Source you must be able to see the light within you. I often call it the sunlight. Get clear on what it is you are fighting for; in order to know peace you must surrender to where you are, and stop the fight or battle within.

The Source inside of you is a well of Eternal Love and Peace waiting for you to drink from its plenty. What all of you need to do is sit in the sunlight with your heart open to receive the peace you are longing for. If you do this exercise often, you will feel the difference.

Many Blessings,
Joan Marie, the GiftIntuition Girl
