“Time for unfolding!” A Jolt of Joan for the week of March 24, 2014


A Time for Unfolding!

Joan C King

Unfolding demands time to release its surprises. During this time we can only wait in the darkness of uncertainty not knowing what will emerge. The process can bring forth something unexpected and potentially cause us to change the trajectory of our lives. It can cut through logically conceived plans to reveal something potent and previously hidden. However, this process requires we create space within which it can burst forth and grow to be seen in its own truth. This demands courage. We often expend energy preventing such from raising its head and unfurling truth for fear of what it will demand of us. We fail to recognize that such suppression also crushes a part of us yearning to come forth. This week, if this assignment appeals to you, spend a few minutes each day in silence – no more than 3 or 4, observing what is stirring within you that you might have previously ignored. Allow it to cut through your defenses to at last be heard. Carl Sagan reminds us, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” Thomas Aquinas adds, “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” Be courageous, listen to what stirs within you and yearns to come forth. Then, act. It can be a small step. It will be a beginning of a new birthing of who you are.

About the Author:

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.
