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 Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education 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.  After a couple of years, I realized my passion for counseling had died too, it was time to leave the school.  Even so, I knew that my passion for helping others was still alive.  

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 wondered what do I do with this?

At just the right time I found Arbonne, a international, state of the art, health and wellness company. I moved from working with children to working with grown up 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 and I quickly rose in the ranks.   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 find the fix, prayer, affirmations, vision boards, spent thousands on so called success gurus, but nothing worked and it all came to a sad and disappointing end.  While I still love, use and recommend the wonderful Arbonne products, my dreams of a successful business are now only a memory.  So, what’s next?

After what I considered to be a miserable failure with Arbonne, making some money was at the very top of my priority list.  But, where can you do that when you live in a little rural town in Virginia 60 miles away from the nearest big city?  You COMMUTE - as thousands of others do daily to Washington, DC!  Because I am blessed to have some other skills, I landed a great job working for lobbyists on K Street!  Huge answer to prayer.  While I was very, very grateful for this job and the intended goal was indeed met very satisfactorily, it was just a job. And, working on K Street with lobbyists was about as far from what a helper/encourager/counselor type girl like me could get.  I did well at my job but I was a square peg in a round hole.  I knew in my spirit that this was not my destiny but an emergency landing strip.    

Years later - I am still on K Street; a pretty long period for a stop gap measure, I thought.  It’s now been years since my husband passed away and I begun to ask daily what God's purpose really was for me.  I did believe that when the timing was right, my purpose would be revealed and it would be a perfect fit. 

God always makes a way.  One way or another.  Here's what happened.  I needed to leave my job on K Street because of a potentially life-threatening diagnosis I received.  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.  Suddenly, there were ‘oil’ people around me everywhere!  I enjoyed learning about the beneficial attributes of oils and met the most interesting and wonderful new friends.  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.  Well!  It made me feel really excited, that’s how!  So, as one driven like a parched wo-man in the desert, I implored the person to tell me where I could find what she had found – she didn’t, but…


Two weeks later, to my utter delight, the woman who knew all about that ‘emotion’ stuff was giving a presentation. That presentation was like something out of this world, interesting, amazing, foreign, hard to understand and believe, but absolutely fascinating. My husband (yes, new one) 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 mind.  JUST THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE!  I invited her to our home and she did a session on me and my husband separately. She released a lot of ‘trapped emotions’, which I found out were also called trapped energies.  My husband and I both had heart walls (what are those?).  It was absolutely 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 that blew my socks off.  I was learning about energy healing and, a new, wonderful and exciting passion was taking root. It resonated with me so completely.

I try always to maintain conscious contact with God, the Creator or Higher Power, so I prayed hard about this and asking over and over, is this it?  Is this what you want me to do???  Is this really my purpose?  Did you really call me to do this work?  YEP! He did indeed!  I didn’t seek this out, I didn’t even know what energy healing was.  But there’s no doubt about it, I have been called to do it and now I’m told regularly, ‘You are a natural healer’ WOW!!  I am so incredibly humbled and grateful for this, another huge answer to prayer.  A whole new world had opened up. With no hesitation, I got certified as an Emotion Code Practitioner.  Soon after, I began the rigorous training toward fulfilling the 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 (I am number 730 in the world) and began my new career as a licensed and insured, Certified Body Code Practitioner, I love it and it IS most definitely a perfect fit.

Now I’m led to help people in a most extraordinary and powerful way, a way that could only have been inspired by a loving and powerful God, who knows my heart.

Lest you think that others are the only beneficiaries of this incredible healing modality, I too have experienced amazing results.  For a variety of reasons, some known and some not, much of my life was a struggle. Maybe, at times yours has been too. I wanted things inside of me to be fixed and feel fixed. But there was always that underlying something still there, a block, baggage, whatever, no matter who I went to or what book I read.  I just couldn’t seem to change certain ways I felt, thought and behaved. But through the life changing Emotion/Body Code sessions, the Abundance Program and the clearing of my Heart-Wall, the key that unlocked the door to health, wealth and happiness has finally been found.  I am enjoying the benefits of being enough. I am enough now – it’s not out there somewhere – when this happens or when that happens. I know it deep inside me and I never did before – a huge and powerful change.  Accessing the subconscious and removing the barriers was, is and will continue to be the answer – and it’s within our reach. And, who gave us all this?  The God of the Universe.  And, just to close the loop on the potentially life threatening diagnosis - testing one year confirmed I was healthy.

All lives are a journey and I can see clearly now how He was preparing me for just such 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 the cup they are clinging so tightly to, so God can fill it to the brim with His abundant blessings. 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 indeed know that Hope Springs Eternal.

"Are you called to be a speaker? Then speak as though God Himself were speaking. Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory in everything through Christ Jesus. All glory and power belong to Him forever and ever. Amen."

1 Peter 4:11

I am called to help others!
