Hi, I am Joanne Selinske, welcome to Soul Souce.
The day I finished reading Dr. Raymond Moody’s Life After Life in 1975, I embarked on a journey to more deeply understand our eternal nature. It has been at once fascinating, fortifying, mystifying and circuitous. But, as someone once said, God writes straight on crocked lines. Close to a half century later, I am sharing what I have learned through my writing, teaching, speaking and clinical practice.
Awakened Soul: Discoveries of Healing, Self-Love and Spiritual Growth is my latest book. Previously, I co-authored two books for the Michael Newton Institute – Wisdom of Souls and Llewellyn’s Little Book of Life Between Lives.
I pursued certification as a hypnotherapist, from the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, to exclusively focus on spiritual regression. To further this objective, I was certified by the Brian Weiss Institute in past life regression and the Michael Newton Institute in life between lives® hypnotherapy.
My spiritual counseling and hypnotherapy practice promotes emotional and spiritual transformation. It is based at Soul Source, a spiritual center I founded which serves the USA’s Mid-Atlantic region. The center offers hypnotherapy, spiritual counseling, and workshops for those seeking balance, well-being and serenity in daily life.
Throughout millennia, sages and mystics have reminded us that life is eternal. Like many, I hold this truth without complete understanding of the higher power that orders the Cosmos; and seek full realization of our interconnection to Absolute, the Source of all-that-is.
I am passionate about our individual and collective well-being, our ability to realize inner peace and joy and to grow spiritually. I know each person is endowed with an immortal soul which has the power to heal, liberate and transform the individual and the broader society.
I invite 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. 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 encourage you 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. The rewards are great.
My Back Story
In 2006, I retired after a three-decade long career as a social welfare executive and advocate for human rights and safeguards.
The short version of my back-story 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.
Before, 2006, 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 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 with a concentration in Transpersonal Counseling.
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. Now, I am immersed in teaching others about the nature and eternal lineage of our soul and how this enriches our life experience.
Like you, the rest of my life-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 engaged in this lila – the divine play of life.
Perhaps you too have shed a tear or more. Perhaps you are wondering what fork in the road-of-life lies ahead for you and worry in advance which direction you might choose. If so, then come along with me on what promises to be a journey to discover your soul’s plan for this lifetime.
