“Make it EASY!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of June 24, 2013
I can hear my mother’s voice, even today, years beyond my childhood
telling me “You make everything so hard!”
In my training to become a coach I took on a personal project,
which I named “Make it EASY, Joan!”
I continue with this interior instruction, even today.
How does this declaration help me?
Once I affirm that I am going to make it EASY rather than HARD,
ideas seem to flood me from I know not where.
It is as though a door opens and lets in this
stream of possibilities that I could employ to make it easy.
Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs. Joan King’s blending of science and spirituality birthed her professional coaching business, Beyond-Success LLC, in 1998.
