One Day Soul Spa


“Janice’s tools helped me refine and glean what my core values are. I have them written on a  stone to help me remember when I’m feeling lost and in need of direction. All her teachings are built on the core values and how to rely on those. Her book and her cards help me with this. I’m looking forward to listening to her audio book and listening to those teachings. I will be processing all that I learned for some time. Her space is beautiful and filled with things that lend themselves to helping me along my spiritual path.”
Alison, Peterborough, ON

“I came here nervous and somewhat skeptical. I left a believer.”
“I knew I needed direction and guidance and I found that and some!”
“It was enlightening and exhilarating learning the tools to help keep me aligned with my life’s purpose. Now I can give myself a soul spa when I feel the need to.”
Stirling, Aliston, ON

What is the Book About?

What is the Book About?

The purpose of Courage to Love is to crack the veil of illusions that stop each and every one of us from being all that we can be, personally and professionally.

This poem is intended to remind us of what is possible when one has the courage to do a little work to free up a lot of love. If this poem resonates with you, then Courage to Love Yourself is a must read!

When you love yourself

When you love yourself
You realize you are not meant to suffer and you are never alone
As life is nothing but a school in which to learn
You accept the past for what it had to teach you
Learning from the lessons and thanking the teachers along the way.
Forgiving ourselves for what we have done, the harm we have caused
Letting that go and belonging in the now.

When you love yourself
You learn to forgive those who didn’t love you
the way you wanted them to.
They loved according to their own definition.
They did the best they knew how.
Forgive and release them.
Forgive and release yourself to experience your incredible potential
To live, to love, to learn, to take chances, and to serve.

When you love yourself
You celebrate “what is” and realize
That possibly you are not ready for “what isn’t”
We are all Masterpieces in different stages of Manifestation.
Everything at every moment is exactly as it is meant to be.

When you love yourself
You realize we are all here for a profound purpose.
To somehow make this world a better place.
You have come perfectly equipped with the exact strengths
And the courage to challenge your shortcomings
with joy and determination
For you are a unique orchestration of both.

When you love yourself
You are willing to laugh at your fallacies and share your strengths
Taking care of your BEING to ensure maximum energy for all
For all is powerful and all is possible
When you love yourself.
