Joanna Hennon shares with us how it took a nervous breakdown before she claimed back her passions, from her teenage years, back in into her life.
She explains how she turned her back on her fascination with anything to do with the soul and spirit guides, when she consciously decided it was 'stupid to be interested in it', and that it was time to grow up and be in the real world.
So she went into a corporate world and was ambitious. She describes it as 'playing office', and that her 'pretty' suits were a costume. Joanna created a whole world around this way of life, because she didn't know there was another way.
This changed one day when she was reading O magazine, and it featured a woman who had a super high powered job, and gave it up to make wall paper. Joanna recognised that this woman had made a different choice from the typical 9-5 corporate life and was not only being recognised for it, but was being successful too!
She realised that there was a possibility that she too could be successful leaving her corporate world and following her passions.
Joanna shares that it was during the recovery from her nervous breakdown that she started to feel good again, calm again, she was no longer shouting at everyone, and she started to ask herself if it was possbile to feel like this every day.
It was simple these questions that would lead Joanna back to herself and her true path.
But of course it wasn't without a few more obstacles...
To have confidence in herself.
That she’s deserving of wonderful things.
That she is a soul – an unlimited being – and that gives her immense confidence
If nothing changes, nothing changes.
If you want something to change in your life, you have to change something in your life.
It's My Life- Bon Jovi
'I’m not your regular spiritual, intuitive person. You will definitely not find me walking around barefoot in my backyard. It’s more likely that I’ll be watching Modern Family or Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the best tv show of ALL time), sipping red wine. Oh and I love shoes, especially black boots. I can literally shop till I drop, I don’t seem to have any other limits.
I’ve always been obsessed with past lives – it’s so fascinating to me that we have experienced so much and that we can either remember or get information about it! Past life stuff comes through regularly in my work because patterns are often from before this life, and I am so grateful that I get to work with this!
Over the past few years, I have learned to trust my intuition, even when things feel scary. Following my path – this work – has been the most fulfilling thing I have ever experienced. Worth every minute of self-doubt and fear.'
