About Colleen-Joy

Reluctant voice for wisdom

We sat cross-legged on the cold school hall floor. I was a shy 9-year-old, trying to be invisible, dipping my head to hide my scars and avoid the eyeballs of my classmates and teacher.

Our Irish music teacher put down his guitar, bright red-faced sighed, “Okay, there’s 10 minutes of class left, anyone of ye wants to come up to the stage, ye can sing, dance, say a poem. Who wants to come up then?”

I looked around to see who the sucker would be when my hand went up on its own…

I walked as slowly as I could to the stage. I don’t remember any poems, I can’t sing, I don’t want to dance.

Tight throat and shaking I took center stage, the eyes of my class burned. 

I don’t know what to say? tears threatened. 

Then a peaceful presence enveloped me, with words that flowed, ‘I had a tumour behind my right eye that nearly made me blind and nearly took my life.

‘Close your eyes, and imagine you’re blind… imagine never seeing your friends again, never seeing your mother… Even if you were blind, that’s okay… I learned there is another way to see. If you have to choose what to trust your eyes see or your heart, always trust your heart.’

The bell rang (saved by the bell); I left the stage confused, noticing my teacher and some of the class were crying. 

What just happened? I wondered. I was listening and speaking?

I’ve spent my life working to solve this mystery, of how we have an inner student and at times an inner teacher. I’ve failed often, but I kept pushing the boundaries of intuition, until I found a way to listen deeply enough to find that peaceful inner teacher every day.

I owe my life and everything that matters to me, to learning to do this.

Which is why I care so much about sharing this with you.

Colleen-Joy Speaking to group

Are you called to guide?

I mentor those who are called to guide, empower and enlighten using master coaching + mindfulness + meditation.

You’ve experienced your intuition. Perhaps spoken your own words-of-wisdom when guiding a friend in need. You’ve had “Aha!” moments of clarity.

You know inner wisdom is there. But when you need it the most, when stressed or suffering, wisdom seems blocked, right?

I’ve found a reliable way to find intuitive wisdom even with a busy mind or heavy heart, even in times of crisis.

After sharing a stage with the best-selling author of the ‘Conversations with God’ series, Neale Donald Walsh, and receiving a standing ovation, Neale said to Colleen, “You belong on an international stage.”

If you don’t find me teaching online, writing or painting

… you’ll find me driving my muddy 4×4 to open wild places.

My heart is never without the redwood forests of San Francisco, poems of Rumi, non-dual dialogues of Sri Nisargadatta, and Van Gogh’s paintings.
