Jo Anna Rothman is one of these chicas I can call “friend” even if we never met yet. She is an amazing healer, she is also an intuitive counselor & guide.
I met her I don’t remember where (I think it’s via Twitter, when I saw a retweet of her by someone I am following, and won a reading with her) but it was through her AMAZING project called The Receiving Project. It is totally free, it’s a 32day project during which you commit to focus on what you are receiving. Seems weird ? Here is what Jo Anna explains about it:
”The Receiving Project is 32 day process designed to explore and enhance your ability to receive the multitude of gifts that life has to offer.
[…] Something amazing happens when people set the intention to receive gifts from The Universe. They become open to the magnificent presents that are all around them, everyday. They get into a groove where goodness flows. And most of all they have fun.
All you do is set the intention to receive a gift from the universe every day for 32 days. These gifts can come in any and every form. If you feel like it’s a gift that you were able to receive, then it counts.
To support you in your process you will receive a twice weekly email newsletter. I am available via email for additional assistance.”
I participated in the project and it simply changed my life. It totally goes along my ritual Gratitude Friday, to focus on all the positive happening in my life instead of what the rocks on the road are.
Once you pay attention to the gifts you receive everyday (yes: every single day), you realize how full your life is. Of course, sometimes you wonder “is it real ?” and my answer is simple and quick: yes.
We tend to link “gift” with a physical thing someone offers to us. But it’s not that narrowed. The inspiration you were waiting for is a gift, the sun on your face despite the fact the forecast’s announcement of pouring rain is a gift, a dream telling you the message you needed to hear is a gift and so on.
The magic in the Receiving Project is that it opens you to receiving uncounsciously because you know you don’t “ask too much” and that you deserve all of this.
32 days is perfect: neither too long nor too short (but I miss weekly emails by Jo Anna though).
She also runs a Healing Circle every month in the San Fernando Valley area (California) and one-on-one session as well.
Jo Anna is working hard on creating a fantastic new website and a 2.0 version of The Receiving Project !!!!!

What a great giveaway, I feel like I need guidance from the universe in regards to what my next move should be to get me in the direction I should go in.
i am seeking abundance in all areas, creativity, friends, health, happiness, fun, good food, beautiful things to look at, time spent in nature, travel, love, spirituality and many more things I have yet to think of today.
This is a really generous give away Nolwenn. I am seeking confidence, courage, clarity in my mind and the gift of the right words to express what I am trying to say in my writing. I am seeking opportunity and the gift of reaching people with my artistic work.
I feel I need the Universe to give me the strength for going through everything I live right now ! (Excuse les fautes d’orthographes en anglais, je n’avais pas mon dictionnaire à côté de moi pour corriger mes mots !)
Je me suis inscrite au Receiving Projet, mais je n’ai pas encore eu le temps de le faire durant 32 jours malheureusement. J’espère le faire d’ici le mois de décembre avant mon retour à la vie de travailleuse qui concilie famille et travail (sans oublier loisir!).
You’re amazing Nolwenn, I’m so loving that you’ve managed to make your 25th birthday last and last with this positive flow of affirmations and sharing with us silly people out here reading your blog. I’m very lucky in that I truly feel that the Universe has given me everything I could possibly ever want or need; now it’s my turn to take up the slack and recognize the gifts I receive every moment. It’s up to me to be aware, to live mindfully, to revel in the deep love I have around me and within me-it’s up to me to let go. Weird maybe for this to be said, but it’s what I feel so I’m going to just go ahead and say it: I love you at this very moment and all the dainty mirrors you put ahead of me every week. You make my path sweeter.
What a great giveaway! I’m here from 21 Secrets finding out about all my fellow art travelers. What do I need from the universe? Strength, determination, calm.
Ohh…cool. What gift do I need from The Universe right now? Faith, courage, confidence, joy.
This reminded me of Notes From The Universe on http://www.tut.com. Do you receive them? They are great.
Humm… Will I be the last one to participate then?
What do I need to receive from the Universe right now? Sometimes I feel that I have everything I need, and that everything is in my hands. Maybe I’d need the Universe to teach me how to receive it’s gifts without fearing not deserving them.
