Not all clients understand or know of the Love of God (higher power), but that should not stop someone from discovering the true blessing of a Heavenly Father wanting to bestow the gift of peace, love and Joy upon His greatest creations.

Many of the songs used in the sessions help clients visualize the opportunity to experience such a love for themselves.

There are also such songs for children. There are many children’s songs that are delightful. Some of my most memorable sessions are those with children. They love the scents of the oils, especially the citrus oils. One of the beautiful things about doing sessions with children is seeing the Joy in their mom’s eyes as she sees the children become calm, sometimes hear her children express their inner thoughts and seeing their children doze off to sleep with a face that shows peace written all over it.

Sessions with children are always done with their caretaker; parent…usually their mother.

Carol: That is special and touching. SO happy to hear of this type of work and services available.
Your regional certification also separates you from certified “Joy Coaches” because?

Ramona: As a Regional Certified “Joy Coach”,” I am able to teach parents the “Healer’s Touch” Technique. This allows parents to bless their children at home. Getting kids to bed is usually a challenge with mom being tired already. Joy Coaching® sessions for children utilize the Lullaby Connection series of CDs combined with the Song & Scent method by Karyn Lynn Grant, LMT. Some of the CDs include titles like: “Magic Kisses”, “Sense of Peace” “Angel Dreams”, “The Morning Star”, “Just Beyond the Rainbow”, “Where Does Love Go?”. There is even a coloring book to accompany the Lullaby Connection Series. What better way to spend time with your children while getting them to bed than with these ministering songs playing as children receive light whispers touches while smelling the wonderful scents of the oils like Lavender, Frankincense, Siberian Fir, Wild Orange and more.

Carol: I’d like to delve more now into your Turning Hearts Towards Hope, more specifically as well, as it is how and where your Joy Coaching® studies and life has led you.

Will you share 3 points that you absolutely want the readers to know about Turning Hurting Hearts Towards Hope?

Ramona: I’d be happy to.
1: Finding someone to talk to you can trust. My own experience in having someone to talk to, to have someone to really understand what I was feeling; when you feel like no one on earth could possibly understand what you are going through; to find someone I could trust was in my case, my ““Joy Coach””. What gives me hope is when I talk to someone who understands so I share: find someone to talk to.

2: Express your feelings on paper. As you express your feelings, they make more sense. Being very honest with our emotions; emotional honesty…telling where we really are by opening up our hearts and sharing how deeply it hurts. Opening up and being honest. As a “Joy Coach”, I am a compassionate witness and emotional confidant. As a “Joy Coach”, I suggest some very creative ways to script or journal. It is like opening a blind in a dark room and letting the light in. It is like being in a dark room emotionally and isolating oneself and holding sorrowful feelings inside.

3: I find hope when I find someone who will guard my feelings and will be there to help me work through a hard time in my life. Even “Joy Coaches” need “Joy Coaching® sessions. We do not have to tell our private heartaches during a session. Someone can just come and have deep relaxation. It is wonderful knowing there is still love in this world and that love can be expressed through a “Joy Coach” using the Song and Scent method.

Carol: Who is that you specifically help with Turning Hurting Hearts Towards Hope?

Ramona: Anyone that comes to me. Anyone that is willing to let their grief be known. Anyone with a hurting heart. This could be someone who is grieving the death of a loved one or colleague, the loss of a pet, who was recently let go by their employer and does not have much hope for the future. It could be someone who has a child or children that do not want to go to bed at night and is looking for a way to help settle them for sleep time. It could be someone who has a broken heart from a previous relationship(s). It could be someone that is struggling with not so pleasant childhood memories. Someone that needs an understanding heart, a bit of comfort and a rest stop along the way in their journey in life.

Carol: What is the most important question those with hurting hearts should ask themselves as they consider Turning Hearts Toward Hope?

Ramona: “Do I want to heal or stay hurting? Do I want to experience real Joy in my life? Am I willing to rest for an hour or so with someone whom I can trust and who is willing to help me discover my calling, my purpose and my mission in life?

Carol: 3 tips for Turning Hurting Hearts Toward Hope?

Ramona:
1: Come in for a session; receive a sweet, beautiful, compassionate, consoling and relaxing session from me that could include soothing oils, comforting music, a prayer of encouragement-there is not quite like the power of prayer.

2: Take a walk in nature. Take a camera and take photos of the beauty in nature. All the way be willing to open your heart to God (Divine Creator) and express your hurts and sorrow and whatever you are afraid about.

3: Turn to a journal or write a letter to God and script out(write) what you are feeling. Be totally honest and putting it out there as you see and feel. There is nothing too emotional for the Divine Creator to not understand.
