That’s the end of the story though, and to better understand Deneen’s journey, we should start from the beginning.
From the age of five, Deneen could hear, see, and speak to angels. Besides the usual playmates of a typical five year old, Deneen was entertained by immortal beings.
“It was a lovely time for me, but I didn’t have a filter. I was unwittingly revealing secrets about family members. It wasn’t long until my family silenced me. I learned it wasn’t acceptable to share truth, feelings, and my gifts with others.”Deneen Joyner
Deneen began to feel her gifts were not good, and perhaps even shameful. She put her gifts on a shelf and stuffed her feelings down. Years of ignoring her gifts made Deneen numb and disconnected.
“I began to focus on the pain in my life.”Deneen Joyner
In 2011 Deneen felt the walls of life were closing in, and the bottom falling out. She was in emotional pain, and didn’t know how to get out of it.
“Every day felt like the same day. I was tapped out.”Deneen Joyner
Deneen had been running for years, exhausting her funds. She had not made her car payment for months. The day came when it was repossessed.
“When I saw my vehicle being hoisted up on the tow truck so they could take it away, it felt as though my soul had left me. I had gotten myself to this place, and things were really bad.”Deneen Joyner
Having denied her gifts years before, Deneen lacked resources to help herself. She considered suicide as the only way out.
“I was angry at God for making me feel I should take my life. Why did you give me these gifts? What are they for? I asked God, but I didn’t get an answer.”Deneen Joyner
Deneen realized she wanted to know those answers even more than she wanted life to end. She began the process to heal. Her journey included learning about Family Karma.
“The reason why people carry emotional pain is because no one ever showed us how to respond to emotional pain. When I began to uncover more of who I am, I discovered the ancestral inheritance I had been given. My pain was generational.”Deneen Joyner
Deneen realized she had unconsciously learned an emotional framework; a lens she’d looked through to respond to life.
Family Karma is based on themes such as: incarceration, divorce, abandonment, illness, etc. This Karma is passed down invisibly to us until a black sheep becomes sensitive to it.
“I was the black sheep, and although I couldn’t put my finger on why I felt uncomfortable in my family, I learned I had been given responsibility to change the Karma. I was the one to heal the bloodline.”Deneen Joyner
Healing brought understanding to Deneen. She discovered:
- Divine Pain – sent to us by God in preparation for our Holy Assignment – our life’s purpose
- Recreated Pain – what we’ve attracted in our life, and what we continue to clone.
“That pretty much makes for a messy life. We tend to focus on what we’ve recreated rather than what Divine has sent. Most often it takes trauma or a painful event to snap us out, and then Divine has our attention.Deneen Joyner
I invited my ancestors into my healing process, and they helped me. It became apparent that I had highly gifted healers in my family. What I’d been trying to outrun, I realized I never could.”
Deneen’s Holy Assignment was revealed:
Now that you have healed, you know how to do it, it’s your turn to show others who’ve forgotten as you did.
By 2014, Deneen knew the WHAT she needed to do. After some soul searching she discovered the HOW was to write a book.
