I am Joanne Selinske, founder and proprietress at Soul Source. I am passionate about your well-being and your path to spiritual fulfillment.
Too many believe only a guru can guide them to a closer connection to God or to create heaven on earth. Still others seek understanding about their past and future from psychics through clairvoyant readings. I know that you are instrument of your own fulfillment. As such, my work with you is geared to help you fully realize this in your life. I help you to look within to uncover your truth.
I challenge you to imagine what your life will be like when you connect directly to your soul and allow it to guide you and chart your future. As a Transpersonal ~ Spiritual Counselor, I help you to examine your current life within the context of your eternal life. Viewing life’s challenges from the perspective of your higher self enables you to make decisions in the future that are consistent with your soul’s plan for this lifetime. I help you to gain insight about the behavior or relationship patterns that impede inner-peace, cause anxiety and stress, rob confidence and self-esteem. Cultivating stillness, equanimity & calm is the best counter-balance for the ever growing demands of daily life. Once you achieve this you eliminate the barriers and encumbrances to your well-being and happiness.
I encourage you to join me as you work to cultivate balance, harmony and serenity in your life; to make room in your heart for gratitude and grace; to realize your destiny and most importantly to rediscover your divinity. Along the way, I promise that you will no longer feel alone as you balance the demands of daily life with your inner yearning for peace, love, unity and joy.
Like sages and mystics throughout the millennia, I understand that life is eternal. Like you, I carry this belief without complete understanding of the higher power that orders the Cosmos. Like many, I seek full realization of our interconnection to All-That-Is.
Like many contemporaries in the integral spiritual movement, I am committed to helping you live your spiritual beliefs in order to discover personal serenity, achieve interpersonal harmony and contribute to global peace. I see stillness, silence and meditative practice as key components for our personal growth, enhancement and the gateway to enlightenment. My own meditation practice has created the information by-way for conversations with soul and opened up the doorway for reunion with Source.
In 2006, I retired after a three decade long career as a social welfare executive and advocate for human rights and safeguards. I was proud of my many years of service to those in need of care and protection.
I had the privilege to work with people in communities around the globe. Regardless of the life circumstances and conditions in which they struggled, I found that people everywhere sought personal peace and loving and satisfying relationships based on mutual respect and regard. Their faith in a force greater than humanity provided comfort and hope even as they coped with extreme deprivation, loss and harrowing life circumstances. I discovered in the wreckage of relationships and life calamity the essence of the human spirit and was inspired to share this wisdom with those on the path of self-discovery and transformation. I realized that I wanted to channel my concern and energy in a different way. I wanted very much to become a part of the human potential movement and to be an agent of personal transformation.
A decade earlier, while enjoying time off in between jobs I realized I was on a spiritual sabbatical. My interest in social and emotional factors expanded to include the spiritual forces that shape human behavior. I had long ago stretched the paradigm of my early Christian heritage through study of Eastern Wisdom Traditions.
Before long the mental constructs that I viewed the world also underwent major reconstruction. I found the need to augment my earlier Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and Family Studies with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Metaphysical Ministry and a Doctoral degree in Transpersonal Counseling in order to better comprehend the interconnected nature of spirit and mind.
I am a Hypnotherapist certified by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association. I am certified by the Weiss Institute in past life regression and The Newton Institute in life between lives hypnotherapy.
In essence, I became a seeker of truth and wisdom and in this seeking I came to understand the soul.
The short version of my back-story my friends is that my soul had a plan! It was different than the one that I had made for my life. And, wow was I surprised!
While I busily and hurriedly went through the business of life, my soul re-calibrated my direction and executed a mid-course correction. It’s not like I woke up one day and boom I had planned a new life. No, it was more gradual and subtle.
Well O.K. – one day I did wake up to find that my external world looked very different.
During my first career I had great fun speaking about our external world to diverse audiences whether in a workshop or plenary setting or on radio or T.V. Now, I have great joy teaching others about the interior world — how to differentiate between external worth and intrinsic value, how to cultivate balance, peace and joy and most excitedly how to experience Source in everyday living. Instead of authoring dozens of professional articles and chapters on dry, dull topics as I did in the past, now I am publishing my first spiritual book and writing a blog on the wonderings and wanderings of the soul!
I am immersed in discussions about the nature and eternal lineage of our soul and how this enriches our life experience. I guide folks on transpersonal/spiritual journeys to higher realms to secure guidance from their higher self, to re-experience and release past lives and to sojourn to the life between lives. Now I host spiritual teachers and holistic practitioners who offer programs for you at Soul Source. But, despite its beauty and comfort, our Soul Source oasis can only fit several dozen people at one time. And even with an active schedule, one can only facilitate a limited number of transpersonal journeys in a day. And so, Wanderings and Wonderings of the Soul was birthed to share wisdom gleaned from the experiences and insight of fellow seekers on the path.
Like you, the rest of my back-story is a work in progress. Like many of you, the plan my soul has for this life continues to unfold. On a good day, I hold on tight and enjoy the ride. On a less than good day, I feel as if it was easier to pin the tail on the donkey blindfolded! I laugh as I write this, knowing that many tears have been shed playing this game of life – engaged in this lila.
