Release your authentic and creative self
… and set yourself free!
Walking the path with you …
The best description of what I do? One of my colleagues calls me a Creative Spiritual Teacher in the Trenches, and I kinda like that! It means that I help creative people to come alive and remember who they are — at the core of their being — and then support them in living their soul’s purpose.
But I’m not some perfect, enlightened guru. I’m right there doing the work with you.
I know what it’s like to be spread thin and stressed out. My time gets divided between my family, my business, and my volunteer work at the local youth theater. If I’m not careful, I get overwhelmed with responsibilities, lose sight of the big picture, and forget to put myself into the equation. Then I get burned out physically, emotionally depressed, and have a crisis of meaning where I wonder,”Why bother?”.
That’s when I have to center myself in who I am and what my purpose is. I lean into that nagging desire to create something cool, and I let it spark me into action.
If you’ve found me, you’ve probably had that desire, too. But maybe you’ve lost some of your spark. I’m here to help you tune into that desire, because I’ve learned that it’s not some random, fleeting thought. It’s your soul calling to you. It wants nothing more than for you to make some space for yourself and express yourself fully in the world. It yearns for you to share your gifts and talents.
NOW, not later. Your soul is calling you now, because now is the time. You don’t need to go to a retreat, or get more certifications, or to do things more perfectly. You only need to start, right where you are, right now. Let the desire fuel you to take one little step today.
And I often need that reminder just as much as my clients. I’ve been creative all of my life and have mentored creatives for more than 20 years. I know that we can have a million ideas floating through our heads. That we can get pulled in too many directions and lose focus. That it can be hard to be accountable to ourselves. I also know that we can be incredibly hard on ourselves and expect more, more, MORE!
And then just when we think we’ve got a handle on things, life happens and circumstances change. I’ve learned that living our purpose is a practice, not a destination. And sometimes we just need someone to lean on and help us remember why we’re even bothering with it all. We need someone who is on our side and who has walked our path.
Why Jennifer Joy?
Alive with Passion and Purpose
Dare to Believe
I was honestly not expecting it to impact me in such a big way. It has confirmed something's within me that I've always suspected, and pointed out those things that I struggle with. I feel as if my eyes have been fully opened, and I dare to believe I can do this.
Jennifer Joy's gentleness is just what the doctor ordered. Our work together helped me have self-acceptance. Acceptance of where I am spiritually and emotionally. I don’t have to fight it and in fact, I can embrace it. I can explore it, and by getting curious about it I can be inspired and bring it into my work as a Coach or a Writer.
Genuine Creative Self
Jennifer Joy is an outstanding coach on all levels. Her gift of incredible support, caring, and insight enabled me to embrace my creative side. It was a phenomenal experience. I recommend her to anyone wanting to be inspired to be their genuine creative self.
Taking Control of Life
During my sessions I realized that I was actually lowering my self-esteem by not being proactive and making the changes in my life that needed to be made. Jennifer Joy helped me see how to take control of my life again and prioritize what I need to do.
The Best in Me
Jennifer Joy sees the best in me even when I do not. She acknowledges my successes and lets me share my ideas and thoughts without being judged. I know I can count on her!
WOW! Your work is so powerful and so to the point. No messing around. No beating around the bush. Very empowering!
Trusting Myself More
What would I do without you! Thanks for allowing me to feel my feelings and supporting me in trusting myself more. You are the best!
