One Thing Better: Jah-Woman, going where the love is

One Thing Better is a weekly series featuring someone who intrigues me, in one-question interview format.

It’s a simple premise. Each week someone answers The Question. 

Jeannine Perlman, who’s spirit nickname is Jah-Woman, is a favorite go-to guru here at The World Is Freaky Beautiful

She’s raw and honest and humbly seeking. She’s also never afraid to be transparent when speaking about her spiritual quest.

Jeannine has been the inspiration for a number of posts — here are some to check out:

Jah-Woman: The evolution of a practice 

Jah-Woman: The unshackling 

Jah-Woman: After the challenge, bliss 

How our favorite Jah-Woman dealt with “unkind, punishing” words 

“I’m all about the Divine Feminine these days” 

You exude the avatars you internalize

Damn! Didn’t realize there were so many until I googled it. And I’m probably missing one or two. 

If you don’t have time to read these, read the last one — it will give you a tiny sliver of a sense of who Jeannine is . . . in the darshan she bestows to those in her presence.

The Question:

What one thing have you been doing recently that’s making your life better?

Jeannine Perlman:

My resolution for this year is “to go where the love is.”  

I came to this idea after several disappointments, and feeling as though I was spending a lot of time struggling and “trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.”  

Moving through my day, and making choices, from that ideal of “going where the love is,” has lead to more heart-centered choices that bring me joy and feed my soul. 

I had allowed my egoic mind to tell me what was “right” and “proper,” whether it was with family or friendships, or even with my own health and well being. 

When I realized the adverse effects of what I was doing and thinking, it stunned me!  

I was putting myself and people that I care about through needless suffering.  

Moving forward, “going with my heart,’ and making self-loving choices has created more balance, and more fun, in my life. 

I worry less and I listen less to the task-master ego. 

I am opening my heart and myself to the grace and truth in me, and I am feeling connected to the divine more strongly than ever before.

The right perspective makes all the difference in the world!  

I am grateful for this experience . . . and I am grateful that you have reached out to me and asked this question. It’s a great “reflection” for me. Thank you. 

For you
