Spiritual Counseling connects you with your Inner Wisdom – your inner “guide” for knowing what is best for you in any situation or circumstance. United with your Inner Wisdom, the spiritual counseling then focuses on building your trust in this knowing guide. Soon, you develop a secure partnership with your ever-present guide and joyfully set about creating the life of your dreams living your true Life Purpose.

space to talk and gain insight from within.

Sometimes you just need to talk things out. Having a spiritual counselor listen to us without judgment allows the often muddled and convoluted cauldron of thoughts and feelings to come to the surface where they can be seen and clearly articulated.

Confusion about making a decision or the next right step is often rooted in lack of self-knowledge, self-confidence, and honesty with yourself about what you really want. Or perhaps you think that if you don’t behave a certain way, you will meet with disapproval and alienate your friends, family, and co-workers. And you might. But whose life is it, anyway?

Spiritual Counseling Can Help

You may be stuck because you believe that you don’t deserve to make the adjustments in your life that you really, really want. When you don’t believe you deserve what you want and need, you are unable to give yourself permission to have, and that will block you from creating the strategies that will get you to your goal.

Or maybe you believe that it’s simply not practical or possible to make the changes you know would give your life a major shift and open you to new opportunities. Or perhaps you simply don’t know how.

Or perhaps you’re too tired, or too jaded after having tried again and again, and feel you are out of ideas and out of options. Perhaps your heart is broken, and you are barely able to breathe through your grief. I am here to be present to your stories of remembrance and loss. I’m here to help with your spiritual healing.

Perhaps you believe that where you are now is the best you can hope for and it’s only downhill from there. It’s not true. Don’t you believe it!

Spiritual Mentoring

As your spiritual advisor, I’m here to give you all the encouragement you need. The truth is that if you’re not living your life in the way that resonates with your deepest desires, if you’re living a life where you’re always short of your goals, or feel that you have to live in the shadows to be safe and accepted, you will be unhappy and permanently unfulfilled. You will feel that you have “missed the boat” and you will never be able to get back on. You will live with an undercurrent of resentment, despair, and lack of self-respect. This is where a spiritual therapist is needed.

Living the life that would fulfill you (and I’m not talking about conventional success) is living a life that in complete alignment with the truth of who you are. It is living a life where you are not afraid to follow your soul’s calling. Living the life you came to live is your personal “Great Work” and highest mandate. This is where your focus needs to be — permanently. I can help you get that focus back. My spiritual guidance will cheer you on to take back your life.

Spiritual Counseling connects you with your Inner Wisdom – your inner “guide” for knowing what is best for you in any situation or circumstance. United with your Inner Wisdom, the spiritual counseling focuses on building your trust in this knowing guide and forming a deep partnership. Then together, you and your reliable and ever-present partner, joyfully set about creating the life of your dreams and living your True Life Purpose.

Building a relationship with your Inner Wisdom is so incredibly important because it is impossible to be completely happy without Its knowing guidance. And yet, this is what we often do. We ignore our Inner Wisdom because our mind tells us those gentle nudgings from within “seem” ridiculous or illogical to pay attention to.

Yet, let’s be clear about this – Being guided by your Inner Wisdom is not the same as following your heart’s desire. Desire is often rooted in unmet needs from childhood that appear in our lives as ‘wants’ or fears. We think if we obtain the ‘want’- a special relationship, a certain car, a bigger house, that promotion or job title – that we will look good to others and earn their approval or feel less lonely, insecure, or unworthy – and finally be happy. Or, we think the fears we have – maybe of being alone or being unlovable or of scarcity and lack – are real, and we let them dictate our choices.

With spiritual counseling, you learn to discern between desires that are dictating your life and Inner Wisdom’s gentle knowing guidance that frees your life. If childhood hurts are revealed in the process, we partner with your Inner Wisdom and heal them. If ‘wants’ or fears are uncovered, we allow your Inner Wisdom to heal these too.

Many spiritual counseling methods are available to you at Awakening JOY Ministries. All of the counseling methods use deep relaxation, some use guided imagery counseling, spiritual life coaching, or Reiki healing. Several methods can be used, depending upon your needs and what you are most comfortable with. Your Inner Wisdom knows what is perfect for you, perfect to create absolute JOY in your life, right now.

Accessing Inner Wisdom Counseling is very effective when you want to clear unconscious “thought clusters” fueling physical or emotional discomfort, tension and anxiety, or undesirable habits. During the counseling, the thought clusters are brought into your conscious awareness. Your Inner Wisdom guides you in releasing the confused emotions or unhealthy thought patterns in the cluster. You go at your own pace and are guided in a perfect healing all directed by your Inner Wisdom.

Ever feel stuck, blocked or stagnant, as if there’s something in the way of creating a deeper connection to your Spirit…to your Soul?

We often encounter road blocks on our spiritual pathway and don’t know where to turn or how to proceed. Evelyn provides a safe space for uncovering those hidden obstacles, and helps to shine a light on what your Soul wants you to see, hear and know as your truth, because the Soul loves the truth! The truth that you already know, but are unable to hear due to the stresses of life. Evelyn helps you locate the blockages and together remove those things that are in the way of obtaining the messages that are there for you, so that you can move forward on your Spiritual Journey.
Over the last 18 years, Evelyn has collected many tools to aid in this process. She caters to individuals, who have a yearning for real, long lasting changes, and who are willing to do the “work.” The work can be fun and exciting because it’s all about you; coming into alignment of Body, Mind, and Spirit, and what true wholeness is.

Through Spiritual Counseling we work with the perspective of your soul manifesting through your personality — through your mental, emotional and physical processes. Spiritual counseling is a transcendent and transformative process, based on the belief that our life is in service to the soul, and, that our connection with soul and the world of spirit holds the means not merely of solving our problems in this lifetime but of bringing us into alignment with the mystery and meanings of the universe.

In Spiritual Counseling sessions we integrate spiritual and psychological methods to explore and transform material that has emerged during your individual reading session. This type work is also appropriate for relationships. These sessions are most effective when committed to over a span of time, just as you would with any serious counseling meant to change your life for the better.

In these sessions, in addition to using my healing and psychic gifts, I draw on my training in a multiplicity of studies, including many from my M. A. in Psychology:

Everything we create begins with our imagination…

“We all possess more power and greater possibilities than we realize, and visualizing is one of the greatest of these powers.”

Genevieve Behrend

No person or power in the outside world can compare to the power you have within you. Seek the power within, as it knows the perfect way for you. Always trust you will be shown the way.

Instead of focusing on the world’s problems, focus your attention and energy on trust, love, abundance, education and peace. This will help.

Stop trying to work out how you will get what you want. Just follow your inner promptings, and act on the opportunities that come your way, and you’ll get there. Trust your instincts. If it feels right, then just do it!

No person or power in the outside world can compare to the power you have within you. Seek the power within, as it knows the perfect way for you to go. Trust in your personal power

“Everyone visualizes whether he knows it or not. Visualizing is the great secret of success” – Genevieve Behrend
Imagination sets humans apart from animals. We can use our imagination to start the creative processs. We can think of a different future by visualizing a specific outcome. Vivid Visualization of what we desire to have, do or become, creates an energy that is a powerful force in creating what we desire.
