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.

21st Century Woman – Finding Healing and Self in a Complicated World

Posted by Intuition Girl

Today’s dynamic woman manages the household, has a full-time career, and in her spare time attends soccer games and school plays. She is witty, sexy, smart, quirky, articulate, knowledgeable and the ultimate super mom wrapped in one package. She’s a no-nonsense gal with a professional and personal background to match her multi-tasking skills and she doesn’t waste a moment sweating the small stuff. But she’s also got a sensual side. She’s tender — she’s loving; and she can compete with the likes of Angelina with just the right touch of makeup and a little lift to her hairstyle.

Like most women, however, the female body and mental disposition can shift with the moon’s phases. She experiences a wide array of emotions and mood swings from day to day that can leave others in wonderment as to what is running through her mind. Some of these emotional shifts may be related to physical, chemical or metabolic imbalances (or a combination of the three). There are revealing studies that examine the chemical makeup of women (and men) and the importance of stress reduction in relation to balancing these inequities.

According to an article in Insight Journal, anxiety problems are linked to a number of factors including learned behavior (on how to deal with stress), personality traits, trauma and mental and emotional states. But were you aware that there can be energy imbalances as well? Joan Marie Whelan, renowned intuitive counselor offers the following advice on how to contend with stress to harmonize mind, body and spirit to become harmonized with yourself and the universal flow of energy, “In order to acquire balance in your life you must first and foremost become grounded in your body,” says Whelan, “One can become grounded through meditation.” Whelan states that this exercise helps reduce feelings of stress, overwhelm and even anxiety. She went onto elaborate, “to be grounded – I often tell people to visualize themselves as if they are a big golden oak tree…. Your legs (are the trunk) that go deep into the earth – As you feel into this image; you will actually experience strength and power. This can and will help bring you stability in your life… the symbolism is powerful–the upper parts (of the body) are the branches… you may swing and sway with your challenges but you do not need to fall down because you are so grounded in the earth that you feel empowered.”

In this new millennium, we discover that more individuals are turning to noninvasive CAM therapies to alleviate daily stress and common health disorders. Some of these complementary and alternative medicines like Tai Chi have effectively demonstrated their abilities to help in healing mind, body and soul. Other complementary therapies like meditation and visualization are actively being studied by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to determine how exactly these mind-body-spirit therapies can assist in reducing stress, improving concentration and focus, and in pain relief, among other health issues.  In addition to the meditation techniques mentioned earlier, Whelan told me about one of her own exercises that she frequently facilitates for health and wellness — visualizing the sunlight within her core being, “If you can focus and visualize the golden sunlight within you, you will begin to experience it and a sense of calm and peace will gradually flow within you.  As you are placing yourself within the sunlight, think and feel loved.  No negative energy can live in the light.  Ask your Source to fill you with love.  The experience is awesome,” she said.

In addition to health issues, women throughout the ages have sought their rightful places in society. From daughter, to sister, to mother, to wife and beyond, women play integral parts on the stage of life. But how does one truly find her “authentic self”? Whelan explained why discovering your authentic self is essential to leading happier, healthier lifestyles: Your Authentic Self defines the real you, the true essence of who you are – your soul energy,” says Whelan, “When you discover your authentic self, you gain wisdom and strength and you awaken to a deeper sense of whom you are and why you were born.” Whelan added that when individuals discover this form of healing and soul awakening enables the opportunity “to get to know you at a deeper level of your being, your soul—complete with all of your inhibitions and vulnerable threads.”

We’ve all heard about women’s intuition, but what makes intuition a valuable aspect to everyday living and in problem-solving techniques? Whelan explained how innately intuitive we actually are. She said, “Our intuition is also known as our conscience; our gut feelings — our inner voice that shares valuable and basic common sense answers and guidance to our daily living. We are making choices all the time.  Some are helpful and others cause us pain.  If we could only slow down our human-ness and live more in our heart, we would hear the soft, quiet voice of our authentic self share words of wisdom.” She adds that stress, anxiety, frustration, resentment, confusion and anger pressure us beyond our limits.  Her thoughtful advice to women (and men) is: “When we are living in the present moment and allow our actions, attitude and behavior to bring forth messages that express compassion, sharing and caring, we change our body language and our physiology and positive experiences spring forth.  But the reverse is also true.  I am continually asking my inner soul, my little child within together with my spirit guides to help me through the day to give me the courage and strength to see the larger picture and to stay grounded in love and light.”
