She has assisted over 20,000 people up-level their lives in her 21-year professional career and remains fiercely dedicated to that cause. Jean believes everyone can live a life of their dreams, and she thoroughly enjoys helping them tap into that potential! Jess is often asked, what sets people apart? What makes certain people so successful? Jess and Jean know that it all comes down to their beliefs. Jess asks Jean if she could talk a little bit about clearing limiting beliefs! Limiting beliefs are a huge part of Jean’s work. Jean knows that we subscribe to these beliefs long before we know that we subscribe to them. A lot of our beliefs are tucked away and hidden in our subconscious mind. People that are having challenges and struggles in life can always find some limiting beliefs that are preventing them from living a life full of ease. Jean explains that limiting beliefs create an obstacle that says “You don’t deserve this, this won’t work for you.” There’s some underlying cause of that. But what is so cool about it is that when we can see those things, we can choose something different for ourselves. Once we unearth those limiting beliefs we can easily unpack it and create an improved way of living! Jean recommends that we take control of our beliefs and thoughts. When you think about your beliefs or thoughts, it evokes an emotion. How you feel creates your energy body. Jean’s work is all about energy, and she has seen how limiting beliefs show up as energetic congestion. People have trouble moving through their old belief systems because it’s part of their energy. Once people clear that energy body they don’t have as much struggle with changing. Thoughts create emotions, emotions create energy. Once you clear that, you have a path to choose more easily for yourself! Jess remarks that energy and beliefs can seem so abstract. Jess asks Jean, “Do you have any actionable tips that people can use?” First, Jean recommends that you recognize that you’re not in a place that you want to be. If you are in a state of suffering, worrying, etc you’re working through a limiting belief. Awareness that this is going on and the wisdom that it doesn’t have to be is extremely important. When you know it, you can see it, and you can start to unpack it. Awareness is key. Jean then explains that intention is a powerful assistant for us. We’re suffering and we don’t want to anymore, so we choose not to. You need to start to feel into what you would prefer to feel instead. As humans, we tend to find all the evidence of why things can’t work. We get caught up in the hows, the whys, and the what-ifs. That stops forward movement. If we can stunt our over-excessive thinking, we can feel into what feels right and true to us. Jean asks that we tune into our authentic source. We have ease, and we have abundance. We have everything we need already within us. The only thing that keeps us from those things is the belief that we don’t have them. Jean tells her clients to silence the lies and limitations and feel into what they want to be feeling. This will change your energy and change your vibration. If you’re vibrating at a place of fear and worry, then you’re cultivating and creating more of that in your life experience. So if you can stunt that, and think “I’m going to choose to not feel that way” you will see the results you want to see. Jean teaches that we can change our thoughts and our feelings instantaneously. The outcome of that might take a little time but if we have patience knowing that we changed our thoughts and emotions, the rest is coming. We just need to be patient and wait to see the results of that. Jess knows that changing thoughts is easier said than done. There’s always an old version of us that tries to pull us back into the fear and lack mentality. Jess asks Jean if she has tools that can help us quiet that fear side of the brain and focus more on the future? Jean responds that it’s tapping into what we want. Too many people focus on what we don’t want. It’s so important to take a step further and think about what we want. Until we know what we want, we have a harder time moving in that direction. So Jean asks that we get clear on where we want to go. What happens with fear is, it ignites the nervous system and we stay in a contracted state. Jean reads emotional energy, so she can see exactly what is happening in someone’s energy field. Jean and her clients start to move through what’s going on in their energy field, and it gives the clients the experience to feel things differently. Jean thinks that meditation is an effective tool. She teaches people how to get into their own inner worlds. If you can understand what’s happening inside yourself, you can make changes. People try to make changes externally but Jean emphasizes that change will not happen there. Change has to happen within. The more you understand yourself and what’s going on inside, the easier you can make change. The other important part of this change is consistency. Jean recommends that we take one thing and work on that one thing. Dedication and consistency to moving in that direction will pay off very quickly. Jean was feeling overwhelmed when her daughters were very young, and she felt that she didn’t have enough time. She said to herself, “I am creating this. I have plenty of time.” She felt into that and very soon after, she was getting everything done that she needed to get done with time leftover! If she had only sprinkled that in, it would have taken longer. She had to consistently give that one thought and feeling a lot of time and energy to make it happen quickly. Jean teaches to focus on one thing that is very important to you and dedicate some effort in that direction. You will be surprised at how quickly things can shift for you. Jess asks, “What changes can people expect when they are diving into this inner work?” Jean explains that the old ways of deep transformational work used to be a purge. We now don’t have to walk through the trauma to heal it. She is a huge advocate of energy clearing. When we clear our energy, all the emotions that were attached to our past trauma flow out as well. We don’t need to do talk therapy and get into all the trauma, the hurt, and the pain. We can remove the energy. The emotions around it become neutralized. What used to take months or years to heal, we can do much more efficiently. The awareness of something can radically shift the energy around it. Jean notes that it’s so important to set intentions and recognize what you want. It starts offsetting all the old energy and trauma. Energy clearing accelerates the process. It doesn’t have to be all the old trauma purging, it can be much happier. Jean laughs with her clients all the time! Laughter can be just as powerful as a cathartic cry.
