Here are some of our frequently asked questions. If you do not see your question, feel free to ask here.
Will this work for me?
Most people experience a sense of relief of relaxation the first time they participate. Depending on the path you’ve traveled to get here, you may experience a noticeable shift the first time you join, or the process may seem strange or distant at first. Either way, you receive a benefit.
What can I expect at an online workshop?
You can join with or without video. Your host, Joan Weisman, will greet everyone and lead a brief meditation. Each gathering has a specific topic related to its theme. Joan introduces the topic before she opens it up to ask and answer questions from participants. We close with a healing meditation.
What can I expect at a Circle?
At a Clearing and Processing Circle we start with a brief check-in. Based on what is ‘up’ for participants your host, Joan Weisman, will craft and explain the process, and walk you through it step by step.
Is this just the same old information I’ve seen before?
Information is easy to find. What changes us is experience. Each gathering, meditation, online course, and session is designed to increase your awareness of your own inner space, strengthen your intuition and self-confidence. When you open a new doorway in awareness, or perception, it stays open.
I don’t want love without a partner.
If you don’t have a partner, or don’t experience the love you want with your current partner, waiting for love from a person is like waiting for water from an empty pitcher. People are not the source of love, though they can enhance our experience of it. Love is, and we attune to it like a radio receiver, or block it. When we no longer allow other people to be our excuse for blocking love, we can finally heal what has stopped us from letting it in. The result? More loving relationships, a happier life, and other good things as well.
Positive affirmations don’t work.
At Love in the New World, we work much deeper than affirmations do. Affirmations overemphasize the influence of our minds on our emotions and bodies. The truth is we make decisions with our emotions more frequently than with logic. Our imprinted patterning is not only mental – it is also emotional. This is why, in our online workshops, we both face and clear our programming, to connect more often and more fully from our Higher Self.
In personal development work we have overemphasized the mind. Our minds are powerful tools, but they are not the source of new insight, ideas, or solutions. They are the receivers of new insight, and the perceiver of our external world. Most of the stay positive movement tried to stay above the emotions which is just a continuation of the old patterns of repression and will not fully and finally resolve old patterns.
There are three levels of enlightenment: 1. The Mind 2. The Emotions and 3. The Body. Enlightenment of the body does not mean an escape from death, but refers to the amount of light you leave behind in the physical when you go.
Love in the New World is designed to support your awakening slowly and steadily through every level of being.
I am already psychic.
If you already know you are an empath or have psychic abilities, then you already understand the importance of keeping your mind and emotions clear and clean. Balancing the masculine and feminine in your psyche, and clearing outdated programming will only clarify and empower your gifts. Avoid the pitfalls of your gift by increasing discernment and impeccability.
I believe love is an action.
Man is not the source of love, but we can receive and share love. Love can be seen through action sometimes. The feeling of love does often move us to action, but no Grace-given state is only an action. Love can be felt when you’re alone, with animals, in nature, or between people in a specific moment. We attune to love or we block it. Living in love will change our actions, but love is the motivator of the action not the act itself.
I don’t believe in God.
Although I sometimes use the words “God” or “Universe” or “Divine,” I respect the understanding that belief systems don’t matter. Beliefs are ideas in the mind that can block clear understanding and direct experience.
Our minds did not create the Universe, and based on its relative size probably cannot begin to truly comprehend it. What I experienced very young changing with my parents from church to church to church to ashram and beyond was a quality in the truly devoted that was similar. In each community some people were experiencing connection, peace, and insight. These people all looked the same to me, it was just the environment and clothing that changed.
I also noticed at that same time how within each church group, there was a unique ‘dress code’ and social hierarchy which had nothing to do with the light I saw in a few people. So, for me, the belief systems and external rules are not important.
At Love in the New World, your experience of connection, peace, and insight that matters. It is your individual empowerment to dissolve the chains that bind you and boldly move towards what truly calls. How you want to understand that depends entirely on what is comfortable for you. What I provide is not the what to believe, but the how to experience.
Love is weakness.
This is an easy misunderstanding to have when you look out at the world and watch the people around us. There are many things that make us weak: denial, lies, settling, repression, obligation, trauma bonding, codependence and more. Sometimes these weakening agents are confused with love, but none of them is in any way related to the real thing.
Love brings strength. It brings peace, it walks in beauty. Love is a magnetic power and part of the Divine Feminine.
When we believe the source of love has to be another person, we turn away from our own direct access.
Across time love has been a great motivator of mankind. It has given individuals strength to accomplish what they thought was impossible. However, it is a new paradigm of power. Not the power to dominate and control others, but the powers to manifest and heal.
