About Janine


"Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind.  The real you is loving, joyful, and free.  The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun."

About Janine

Hello. My name is Janine Naus. I look forward to meeting you! I'd love to guide you to creating heaven wherever you are in your life.

Hello. My name is Janine Naus. I look forward to meeting you! I'd love to guide you to creating heaven wherever you are in your life.

It's time.  Your time.

Your time to leave all the sadness behind.

To let go of your feelings of powerlessness.  Of hopelessness.

To open your heart and love yourself.  And trust the love of others.

And know that you can experience an unshakable serenity, peace and sense of well-being.  No matter what.

Yes, I know you've already tried to make the best of it.

Maybe you've tried talking about your experience with your family and friends.  But they didn't fully understand.

Perhaps you've talked with your pastor or religious leader...or gone to therapy...or read numerous self-help books.

But you still feel frustrated, disconnected and alone.

I get it.  I've been there. And that's why I created a Bridge to Healing for people like us.

I struggled nearly my whole life with being out of touch with my feelings, putting up with abusive situations, unable to set clear boundaries and becoming overwhelmed by life, steering clear of any kind of intimate relationships, living my life in a flatlined state, never experiencing any extreme highs or lows, and a distrust of others all of which were a direct result of being physically, emotionally and sexually abused from age 3 to 50.  (You can read my full story here.  Warning:  it's not for the faint of heart.)

Like you, I tried everything.

And it wasn't until my 50th birthday when I was severely shaken after being mauled by a drunk man in a bar, that I'd reached my limit,  I'd had enough.  I had to get help.  Real help.

This last traumatic blow led me to the work of don Miguel Ruiz, his son don Miguel Jr. and his co-teacher HeatherAsh Amara, a shaman and healer who facilitated hundreds of workshops in the Toltec tradition and author of the best-selling book Warrior Goddess Training, The Toltec Path of Transformation and Warrior Goddess Way.

It was HeatherAsh's woman's apprenticeship program, 13 Moons Women's Circle, that allowed me to feel safe for the very first time...safe enough to deal with my trauma experiences, process them, and start to feel whole, powerful and divine. 

As a result of my own transformation, I became certified as a life coach and expanded upon those skills with multiple trainings for one single purpose...to help YOU heal and create heaven wherever you are.

So...let me ask you now...

Have you reached your limit?

Are you ready to finally get the support, guidance and healing you need to:

  • Leave all the sadness behind?

  • Reclaim an open heart, love yourself again and trust love of others?

  • Have more energy, a stronger sense of self and a lot more self-confidence?

  • Be free of your fears once and for all?

If so, it would be my honor to share with you the gifts I've been given through healing my own traumatic experiences so you too can be liberated from the painful emotions, frustration and emptiness that prevents you from finding lasting joy, love and peace.

I know what you're up against.

I know what its like to...

Welcome Home!    “To live with awareness of your essence is to sit in the center of silently knowing why you are here. You go out into the world, and sometimes the world breaks your heart, wounds your body, and overcomes your mind’s ability to make sense of it all. But if you can stay aware in your own still center, if you can hear the sound of the voice of that which is larger than yourself calling you home, you can meet the challenges, sometimes even revel in them, because you know where home is and you know you have not been forgotten.”   -Oriah Mountain Dreamer

And I know, without a doubt, that no matter what you're feeling right now, you can heal and create your own kind of heaven wherever you are.  You can be happy and healthy.  You can know true love.  You can live with confidence, courage and joy.
