Interview with Dr. Joy Pedersen

What is spiritual healing?

All challenges (whether mental, emotional, health, financial or relationship issues) have an invisible cause on the spiritual level. If you remove the cause on the spiritual level, the manifestation of the problem or challenge can be released. Spiritual healing is the process of healing whatever exists on the spiritual level so there are no unpleasant effects in the physical experience.

What is the process you use?

I use an ancient process of ho’oponopono, a Hawaiian term for correcting and setting aright. I was trained in this process by Morrnah Simeona, who updated this process with guidance from Divinity for use today. When I do this process, I am working directly with Divinity who is responsible for the healing.

How were you introduced to this process?

I was at a seminar and the author/trainer recommended the process to us and introduced me to Morrnah.

What about it drew you to it?

I had studied success and applied the steps to success to numerous areas of my life and did so successfully with many goals and then in some there were challenges. In my case, money seemed to be more of an issue. Other things were effortless. I realized that if you applied the same steps successfully often and then the same efforts didn’t work in some areas there must be a block to the results I wanted in those other areas. I was frustrated as I couldn’t figure out what was causing the problem as the techniques worked with most other things; why not with this? I couldn’t figure it out.

When I was introduced to ho’oponopono and the idea that problems could have causes only known on the unconscious, this made sense to me. I found that it was the missing link for me.

I first hired a ho’oponopono consultant to clear money issues for me but she also encouraged me to learn the process myself because the applications of the process were numerous. I took the Basic 1 and II trainings as well as have repeated the training many times.

How have you applied the process?

I have used the process in all areas of my life. For example, when I used to regularly teach adults in New York, I would use the process to clear all connections to people, places and things from the time I left home until returning. I would include everything known and unknown. Known would include students, topic, questions, sound of my voice, parking, location, etc. When I did ample clearing, I would often find free parking in front of the location, the class would be receptive and appreciative and I went home feeling energized.

I have challenges with my lower back. When I did a clearing on my back one night, I saw several lifetimes of back injuries. I cleared them and my back was fine the next day. Having re-injured my back, I have had to continue doing the process on it. Sometimes it’s a quick fix and other times, it may take more processes than just one to clear the situation because there may be many layers contributing to the situation. I have had much fewer problems with my back now. If I have a back problem, however, I use this process to address the cause.

As far as relationships are concerned, I have applied to numerous situations. Typically, I go within and look at myself and clear what comes up. The end result is either the person changes their behavior that was bothering me, I find that I end up viewing the situation differently, the problem goes away, or I am no longer bothered by the situation. Whatever the end result is, it was without confrontation with the other person.

How do you identify the cause of the problem?

It is not necessary to consciously identify the cause. You can ask, “Whatever is within me that is causing this to be a problem?” and just include in the process. Because I have the ability to see contributing factors, it sometimes shows me what the cause is or what I should include in the process, but it is not always necessary.

How did you discover you could recall past lives?

I always believed in reincarnation so I was always curious what my past lives were so I went to a past-life therapist. The realization that the past-life information was easily accessible, caused me to be able to do have past-life recall without assistance.

How has knowing your past lives been useful?

It ends up explaining a lot. It helps identify where an issue may have started or a layer that shows why a belief or behavior is in place.

What is karma?

Karma is cause and effect. If you had a negative thought or experience in the past, the effect may be negative. If you clear the cause, you clear the effect.

This differs from how I was raised. How do I come to terms with my beliefs and what you offer that differs from that?

I wasn’t raised to believe in the concepts I now teach and use. I learned and adopted them as I was educated and experienced the results from implementation. Everyone comes from their own perspective. Once a perspective is broadened, it is easier to accept we don’t know everything. It was once commonly believed that the world was flat. The world was round regardless of the beliefs in place at the time.

As an ordained minister and Doctor of Divinity, do you have church?

No, I have been guided to work with Divinity. Divinity is accessible from anywhere. I work mostly by telephone because it allows me to reach the people who are open to receiving assistance without the limitations of location.

Who are your clients exactly?

The process can be applied to any situation and anyone with a challenge. A sampling of people who have hired me include:


Financial Planners










What happens if you haven’t yet worked with people in my field?

I work with animate and inanimate objects, property, and individuals. As a spiritual healer working on clearing someone’s personal or business issues, it doesn’t matter what the business is because the process can be applied to anything and the intuitive skills used bring in what is necessary to be included in the process.

How are you different from other “coaches?”

Although I am a certified coach and coaching comes into play at times, the work I do consists more of clearing the cause of a situation showing up as it does rather than managing or trying to improve with tactics. If you remove the cause, the situation changes more magically than by manipulation.

What are some of the reasons people hire you?

People hire me if they have a challenge in any area of their life they want to have relief from or the area that they want to put forth effort to change the experience or outcome. Unfortunately, many people reach out when they are desperate and nothing else is working or they find the same negative experiences reappearing. When someone realizes they aren’t getting their desired results, they hire me to release their blocks. Sometimes someone is frustrated with their current circumstances or relationships and want to release the cause.

Everything that occurs on the physical has a nonphysical component. Many recognize that fact and when they see something they want to change in their lives, come to me when they want to work on the nonphysical to change the results they are experiencing on the physical.

Homeowners hire me when they want to sell their home so it goes quicker and easier or have just moved into one to clear the energy of their new home and property. Those that are planning an event, hire me to help the event go smoother and easier as many things can be alleviated if cleared in advanced. If someone has a health challenge, an issue with a loved one, wants to clear an argument or anger. Those that have negative memories, programming or experiences, hire me to help them release the cause of those situations.

What is expected of me?

To show up on time and be open and receptive. When you are willing to let go, things happen quicker and you have better results.

For what type of person is this program NOT going to work?

Someone who is resistant and unwilling to take responsibility for the results in their lives has more difficulty letting go.

If someone is negative or closed-minded, they are probably less likely to consider hiring me.

I prefer to not work with the whiner or the constant skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses. If you are one of these people and want to clear the cause of your being a whiner, skeptic or victim, I am open to work with you if you are willing to address those issues.

Does this really work?

Yes! The result of our work is an approach to life that has had numerous and profound benefits for our clients, over time and with your dedication, works consistently. (See what others have said Client Testimonials).

What results can I expect?

You can expect:

  1. Divinity will be addressing your situation

  2. The cause of your problem or situation will be cleared but the timeframe involved is up to Divinity and depending on how many layers of elements, the results sought may not be garnered in a predictable timeframe

  3. Stress release

  4. Release of unhealthy attachments

How quickly can I expect results?

Some people have noticed a difference before they get off the telephone, some later that evening. Some will notice subtle changes over time. Some have benefit but they don’t notice anything consciously. It always depends on the person and the specific situation as well as their blueprint. Also, one session will release a certain number of things or layers. Your situation may dictate a number of sessions if your situation has many layers and/or lifetimes contributing to it. I have found that those who are older souls, have more to clear and, therefore, depending on how old the problem has existed could cause a problem to take longer to resolve.

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Because I respect my client’s privacy, unless otherwise stated, I don’t reveal the names of my clients. I do, however, share testimonials of those who have provided permission as well as have shared case studies to give potential clients a sense of things people both work on and experience. It would be better to have a mini session to have a taste of the experience if hesitate to enroll in a full program.

What if I don’t believe in past lives or reincarnation?

You don’t have to believe in reincarnation for the process to work. I sometimes see past lives that are contributing to problems you are experiencing in this one. If you prefer not knowing about past lives that I see, I can do the work without bringing them up. I end up often seeing lifetimes that are affecting the situations you bring up, however.

How do I know if I’ve cleared everything necessary?

During the time we have together, we will clear whatever comes up during the time allotted. Some things need time to show up differently in the physical world but if you are still experiencing things you do not prefer, it is an indication there are more elements than we had time to address or the other layers weren’t accessible until others were released.

How can I guarantee myself that I will get the most results?

Those that commit to working on a regular basis, will see the best results. Situations don’t arrive in one hour, although many elements can be released in one hour, the best results come over time with commitment to release the past.

After doing this work for so many years, is your life perfect?

From doing this work, life has become much easier and more rewarding. It doesn’t mean that I never have a problem or incident to address. It means that I have a useful tool to use when something surfaces. I, of course, do as much clearing in advance so things don’t surface unnecessarily. I find there are fewer problems to contend with from having done this work for so long.

When is a good time to hire you?

Ideally you would do this work before something negative happens because if you clear in advance, you can prevent negative experiences that would occur had you not done the clearing. Often, however, people wait until they are in crisis before calling. Someone who is proactive and takes preventive action has better results. When you wait until a crisis occurs, you need clear the emotions as well as the circumstances. If you aren’t getting results you desire, that is the time to begin clearing whatever is blocking the desired outcome. The outer circumstances are reflective of what is going on within although often unconscious.

What areas do you work on?

I clear the energy and history of objects, property, housing, buildings, etc., to raise the energy of the environment for optimal results.

Regarding the individual, we address whatever challenges they are experiencing. This stress release process helps release the cause of that stress whatever the area of life it is generated. The optimal results is someone living their best life, with good health and wellbeing, abundance, ease and effortlessness.

A business is a living entity and the same process can be used for a business to have the highest and best energy to attract the highest and best results. As a business is made up of one to more people, we clear what is going on within the people that has a negative effect on the business. The goal is to attract and keep the appropriate customer, clients and patients with good to all involved.

Money and relationship issues are popular to address for people of all backgrounds. I help people who have trouble making, keeping, managing or spending money. I help people with their personal as well as their work relationships. If someone wants to meet a new person as well as leave the person they are with or let go of someone who has left them, including by death.

I help people let go of their fears, negative mindset or programming, limited thinking, and what is stopping them from being all they are capable of or living their best self or life.

Who is your ideal client?

Someone who is open minded, sincere, authentic who wants to do whatever they can to be, have and do the best for themselves and their loved ones.

Who is not an ideal client?

Anyone who is a skeptic or closed minded. Someone who doesn’t have an interest in taking responsibility for their own life and results is not likely someone who will be drawn to this work.

How are you able to do what you do?

I have been clearing myself for years using the ho’oponopono process bringing myself back into balance, releasing karma, and raising my vibration. I have been told I was also given specific gifts to help me to do what I do. I am grateful for the tools I have been given as well as gifts. I can’t explain how I do what I do because it just started happening. The first time I was shown automatic writing, I was able to write numerous pages and never stopped. After several sessions of past life therapy, I realized the information was right there and that acceptance allowed me to continue to recall past lives on my own. Later I learned I could see the past lives of others. I am not even sure where the skill level comes from being taught stops and where the gifts of these abilities step in. Maybe the gifts were there and then someone opened the door for me to access them when taught certain skills.

How do you work?

The client calls at the appointed time, I open a spiritual process/channel to Divinity, and then anything discussed during that time is included in the process. During that time, I will also suggest things to be included based on experience, to have a thorough clearing of situation and what I also pick up intuitively. Once the session is over, I close the process/channel and the work is in Divinity’s hands for clearing and releasing.

Can you elaborate on your fees?

Divinity has instructed and/or approved the fees that I charge for my time or the service. There are different price points to make the work available to all.

How do you charge?

My preference is to use Paypal and offer a link on my site for the various sessions and work I offer. I recommend the payment be made to reserve the time on my calendar. I charge for my time or the specific type of project as I am guided. The actual healing is between you and divinity.

I have money issues and am interested in hiring you to clear my issues regarding money. However, I cannot afford your services, what do you suggest?

My recommendation is to take the group clearing calls to get started in releasing the blocks surrounding money. They are created to offer an affordable method for people to have a taste and a general clearing. These calls may not be sufficient to get to the root cause of your money issues, but may help in getting layers of elements off sufficiently to receive the money. The other alternative is to see if there’s availability for a mini-session to have more personalized attention.

If you are ready and committed to releasing the cause of your issues, you can help attract the funds to you.

  3. 3.Reading Wisdom of the Guardian: Treasures From Archangel Michael to Change Your Life will help educate you on some of these ideas and provide you with some free tools. You can read more about that book at www.WisdomoftheGuardian.com

How have you helped others?

I believe because I run a network group, that as I have been exposing these gifts and work to others, a number of business owners have come to me. Their challenges in business and their personal lives have varied as well as the elements I see. Because the memories come in layers, I assist the release of those that are ready to come up and off. Divinity does the actual work. I will be shown causes in some cases. In others, I just do the clearing work. For example, I worked with one business owner who was in the process of negotiations and we cleared the prior connections with all parties involved in the negotiations as well as his fears and concerns about the situation as a whole.

Another gentleman had difficulty releasing the attachments he had to a woman who he knew was not appropriate for him. When I saw the cause of the connection and released it, the attachments to the woman and the connection with her disappeared effortlessly.

If I’m not sure I’m ready to get started, how can I sample your work at low cost to see if it is the right fit?

Register for one of the group clearing calls you can have a sense of the procedure. For a taste of a private session, you can register for a 20-minute mini session. A way to sample the philosophy is to sign up for the 5-week mini e-course and Subscribe here.

OK, I’m ready to do this for myself, but I have a couple of additional questions. Can I call you?

Yes, if you have a couple of questions, just email me at Joy@ExpressSuccess.net or call me directly at 973-706-8212 and we’ll be happy to walk you through the different options to see which one will be the very best for you. I would be honored to help you and obviously you have to be comfortable with me to allow me to do so!

What are my options for getting started with you?

Congratulations on making a decision for success! I’m happy to work with you to clear your challenges for greater success.

Although I still offer the occasional single consultation, after doing this work for so many years, I find it useful to do the work on a regular basis. Challenges were not created with an isolated incident and often need multiple sessions to clear all the layers of elements. The more you clear, the better your results. How many sessions mostly depends on your time, budget and commitment to an optimal outcome.

How do we get started?

Great! Did you know that one of the most prominent characteristics of successful people is that they take action? They take educated risks, are decisive, take action, and they move forward towards success faster as a direct result of this. It’s a well-known fact these people make decisions based on their gut instinct. So, that being said, since this feels right for you, then go for it.

Here’s what you do: just email me that you are ready to start or have questions at Joy@ExpressSuccess.net and I will respond as soon as possible. The other option is to call me at 973.706.8212.

I can’t wait to meet you in person or on the phone to get you started on your path to less stress and more freedom, abundance and success.
