Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jean Atman, an ascension coach and energy medicine specialist, based in Mt Pleasant, SC, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Clients come to me with financial struggles, feeling defeated in life, surrounded by toxic relationships, feeling unloved, not heard or understood, and feeling unable to move out of these negative experiences. I help them bring awareness to the unconscious patterns that are running their lives and shift them so that they can stop living in survival mode and instead begin living in their potential.

My work is different than most as I not only help people heal through past trauma, but I teach and empower them also to heal themselves. They begin to see why they are stuck and how to free themselves from the looping thoughts, triggered emotions, and current challenges. Since everything is made of energy, energy healing is a big part of my work. I am known as a master of depth perception and can see where old traumas are stagnant in the energetic system and how those blocks are now causing challenges in daily life. Once those blocks are freed, people notice a significant shift in how life works around them. Just think if you kept every piece of clothing you have worn since birth. Think about the congestion that would cause in your closet. If you never clear your energy, it is like carrying every memory, thought, and emotion since birth. No wonder we feel so weighted down!

This is why energy clearing is vital for releasing what no longer fits. People begin to see how powerful they are at creating their worlds. They learn to stop focusing on all the external moving parts that feel overwhelming and instead focus inward, where real change can be made. They not only have me to do the heavy lifting of deep energetic clearing work that is keeping them stuck, but they get a front-row seat to how it works so they can apply that process to anything in the future that might surface later. Because I am an open channel, I can easily see deep within the layers of what keeps people stuck. It is much easier to heal and clear it permanently when they know where it began.

Tell us about yourself

Since I was young, I have always been able to see beyond the veil. I witnessed ghosts in our home, communicated with nonphysical beings, and opened to channel in 2011. This outer-worldly connection provides me with guidance that is key in assisting people in a deeper-level understanding of their inner worlds and what is actually in their way of healing. When you feel connected to all that is, you learn to trust in the process as you become privy to seeing the experience from a much broader perspective, where it can actually make sense. I teach others how to access these hidden places within themselves.

In addition, growing up in an extremely volatile and toxic environment, I needed to become tuned in to others around me so I could stay safe. While it was an uncomfortable start in life, it built my gifts of being able to deeply understand and see what others could not see for themselves. It helped me learn more about the human condition, how adaptive behaviors began, and how they can become maladaptive if we never change them.

Growing up with abuse set up what I call contrast in life to show me exactly what I do not want. I have spent my life pivoting from that place and learning all the ways to move out of suffering and stop perpetuating negative cycles. I am constantly fueled to share this information with others so they can also move out of negativity and suffering. We do not need to be in a constant state of struggle. Nothing gives me more joy than to help teach and show people there are better and easier ways of being.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

To me, this is not recognition or awards. It is seeing each person I work with thrive in their lives. It is hearing how their lives are vastly different from before our work together. It is witnessing them go on to accomplish all they set out to do and feeling confident within that movement. To feel so sure of my path in assisting others with theirs I would consider my greatest accomplishment.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Changing the mindset that I have to do it all. This was a big one for me. Being a perfectionist-type and feeling very protective of my business and all the moving parts, it was hard to allow others in to help. But that was not sustainable if I wanted to continue to reach the masses and help uplevel all I could. Lots of big lessons in that shift!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Follow your heart and where you feel called. Do what you love, even if others don't understand.
  2. Ask for help and support and allow it in!
  3. Check any limiting beliefs that are creating blocks. They are simply illusions. Decide what you want to believe, and believe it!

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

We are in a time of massive change and potential. I hope each person who reads this can take a moment, take a breath, and realize these times are like nothing we have ever encountered before. Life no longer needs to be hard. We have entirely new energy at our fingertips, available to each person. I hope you can invite it in, as it is beautiful!!
