Listen to Jean's interview with Empowered Women on Blog Talk Radio - 10/30/17

For many, many years the positions I gravitated to were those of helping others.


Twenty years squeezed into a page and a half….

My name is Jean Hope and I am trained as a school counselor, hold a BLS in Psych and a M.Ed. and Counseling; spent years in the schools with children of all ages; doing all the things that counselors do.  It was both a brutal and richly rewarding job and I loved it.  But because there was such a need beyond what I could do as a school counselor I was also working toward my clinical license for professional counseling. 

Then the unthinkable happened. My husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer and in four months he was gone.  For those who have experienced this, it rocks your world.  In time, I realized my passion had died too, it was time to leave counseling, however, God did keep alive my passion for helping others.

Along with being a ‘helper/encourager/counselor type, I also became interested in everything wellness which usually includes somewhat of a departure from traditional ideas to a more alternative way of thinking, living and treating illness. I devoured books on these topics and, guess what, I loved it, but wondering what do I do with this?

At just the right time I found Arbonne, an international health and wellness corporation. I moved from working with children to working with women.  And, I loved everything about it – the culture, the fabulous women and the high performance pure, safe and beneficial wellness products that were Swiss formulated, but USA made. These products did wonders for me physically and the “building a business” part gave me a new hope and a new passion.  But I got to a certain level in my business and I could go no further.  I knew something was terribly wrong, but I didn’t know what.  I tried everything to save it, spent thousands, nothing worked and it all came to a sad and screeching halt. While I still love, use and recommend the wonderful Arbonne products, my once flourishing business is only a memory.

I had to make some money – so where can you do that?  Go to Washington DC and work for lobbyists on K Street and that’s what I did. And I also prayed for the Lord to lead me to what He really had planned for me.

It’s now been many years since my husband passed away. I had begun to ask God daily what His purpose was for me. I knew that when the timing was right my purpose would be revealed and it would be the perfect fit. 

I left my job on K Street because of a potentially life-threatening diagnosis.  So, through my quest to heal myself and my interest in holistic healing, I learned that pure essential lemon oil was one remedy and I found do-TERRA, a company whose oils are so pure Johns Hopkins uses them in their cancer research.  Then through what can only be God’s leading there were do-TERRA people around me wherever I went. Lord, I asked, do you want me to sell oils now?  No, that’s not what the Lord had in mind. I enjoyed learning about the beneficial attributes of oils and met wonderful new friends, though.  With oil friends, you meet the most interesting people.  And, on one occasion, I overheard the words, ‘emotion’, ‘emotions’, ‘trapped emotions’, ‘changed life’...WAIT one minute HERE, I thought...emotions, that’s almost like a mating call, I’m still a counselor, and we’re all about an ‘emotion’!! – you know, the old, ‘how does that make you feel?’ question counselors are so fond of.  So, as one driven like a parched wo-man in the desert, I implored the person to tell me what this was all about…she didn’t, but…


Two weeks later, to my glee, the woman who knew all about the ‘emotion’ stuff was giving a presentation on that very topic.  I was ecstatic. That presentation was so interesting, amazing, foreign, hard to understand and difficult to believe, but fascinating. My husband (yes, remarried) was selected to be a subject and the lady used something called muscle testing to get yes or no answers from my husband’s subconscious.  She came to our home and did a session on me and my husband separately. She released a lot of ‘trapped emotions’, which I found out were trapped energies that are produced by the organs and glands. My husband and I both had heart walls.  It was incredible; most of her answers to my questions about not understanding how this worked were, ‘Read the book, Jean, it will answer all your questions.’  And she was right!

So, I read the book, The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson.  I didn’t just read it, I studied it.  I read things I had never even heard of before. I was fascinated and amazed beyond description.  I was learning about energy healing! I prayed and prayed over it and asked God, is this it?  Is this my purpose revealed? He said YES! I didn’t seek this out, I didn’t even know what energy healing was.  But, a whole new world opened up for me. With no hesitation, I got certified as an Emotion Code practitioner.  Soon after I began the rigorous training and certification requirements for The Body Code, the most advanced energy healing system in the world. I am thankful every day for this opportunity. I earned my certification and began my new career as a licensed, insured, Certified Body Code Practitioner, I love it and it IS a perfect fit.

Now I’m led by God to help people in a most extraordinary and powerful way, a way previously unknown to me, that could only have been inspired by the all-knowing God.  Being one of only hundreds of people in the world certified to do this work is truly humbling and so amazing.

I just need to say, other people are not the only ones who have benefitted from this incredible healing system, so have I, in huge ways.  For a variety of reasons, some known and some not, I struggled in many ways, maybe you have too.  I wanted things to be fixed and feel fixed. I failed in my Arbonne business, it was a huge blow.  I wanted my cup to be filled, to run over like David’s in Psalm 23:5.  But, I have come to understand, my cup was already filled – just with the wrong stuff, there wasn’t any room for anything else.  But through all this, the key that unlocks the door to health, happiness and abundance has finally been found.  I am enjoying the wonderful, life changing benefits of being finally free to live in success and abundance, I am enough, I know it deep inside me.  Accessing the subconscious and removing the barriers is the key – using The Body Code System, the Blasting Away Your Abundance Blocks program, healing relationships program, the PTSD program for Vets and others, etc. – life can change, and a new reality begins. Without this work, I surely wouldn’t be doing what I am doing now with a belief in myself I’ve never experienced before. And, I will continue to have Body Code sessions because life just keeps happening.

All lives are a journey and I can see clearly now how God was preparing me for just a time as this.  So, I could change the world one person at a time by helping them achieve their optimal health, wealth and happiness. “Everything is possible for one who believes…” Mark 9:23. It’s a tremendous gift. It happens by helping each person pour the hurt, grief, anger, fear, etc. from their cup so it’s ready for God to fill. He chose to use me as a conduit to give Hope to those in need, however they need it, physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually - that they may know indeed Hope Springs Eternal, for His Glory.

And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
