Read Testimonies…

” Jewel is an extremely astute coach, mentor, listener and guide. I had an initial Skype session with Jewel some time back. Since then I have aimed to put in to practice the clear steps she advised me to look at and work on. However, recently I hit a wall, and had an epiphany of what lay at the heart of the majority of my very long standing ‘ negative – self’mindset issues and this resulting suppressant to reach the potential God is calling me to. I knew how deeply significant this was for me and that I’d arrived at a clear watershed in my life. I immediately knew I needed to speak with Jewel. I knew she would read my situation, understand and discern with incisive authority, speaking courage, truth, honour and measured calm in the way that was necessary and fully appropriate to me. I can’t recommend her highly enough. If you are really serious in turning your damaged mindsets round in your life for good so you can move on permanently speak with Jewel to get you on the right path and beyond. Jewel is the total package and genuine spirit-filled- sent article for those of us who need genuine encouragement and a restoration of true self worth.” – Emily, The United Kingdom

kimberly williams 2 (1)I had an amazing “author and speaking coaching session” with author and motivational speaker Jewel Diamond Taylor.  Anyone who aspires to go to the next level, you must have a mentor or a personal development coach.  It’s wonderful when you meet someone that like you on the next level and can give you guidance as well as give you the ingredients to success!  Thank you Jewel for your keen insight, Godly wisdom and superb road map for success and serving the Kingdom.” Kimberly Williams (speaker and author), Founder of the Matriarch Society

“Since I have joined Jewel Diamond Taylor’s mentoring class my Vision has gone to another level. I thank God for Mrs Jewel Diamond Taylor she’s awesome.” – Emertha Jones

My dear beloved Life Coach Jewel: “I wanted to share the fruits of your love as my coach.  I couldn’t see the vision and looked down and wanted to give up and you helped lift my head to the Lord from whom ALL my help comes from. From that day in 1993, when I felt my life was not worth living and I contemplated suicide you came into my life via email. God dispatched you as my Angel to lead, guide and encourage me. With all your books, CDs, and individual coaching over the past 24 years I am humbled and honored to share my endeavors with you.  I will be retiring from my job in Sept 2016. With your coaching and inspiration along with the Holy Spirit I have two businesses that God birth into my spirit last year around this time. I’m forever grateful for you my Angel. Once I’m retired I can’t wait to attend one of your retreats. Love you with all my hear mind and spirit.” ~ Charmaine (Maryland).

I had a great life coaching session with a new client Emily from the U.K. London. We had our 90 minute session via skype. I thank her for sharing her positive feedback below.
“Hello Jewel… Just to thank you very much for our session together.  I found it totally edifying. Lots of notes and things to ruminate, work, reflect and make friends with myself on. I already feel like I am on a re-defined path of growth, like you have switched on my re-set button. Crucially though without being knocked sideways, radically changing my vision or what I feel God has been nudging and encouraging me towards. It just means navigating the path I will know more what to tune into, in order to maintain stamina and clarity, plus nurse any dispiriting days…which are inevitable as well as the good. I would love to have another session soon.” Warmly, Emily

“I took advantage of this and it was by far one of the best experiences/ coaching session ever. I was very touched that Mrs. Taylor ended our coaching session in Prayer not to mention I felt like a conqueror afterwards. I’m in desperate need of another coaching session and hopefully I can secure of of the available slots. Thank you!!” Wendy Reed, California
“My decision to meet with Jewel as a Life Coach was a divine life changing decision. Jewel was so easy to talk to and I instantly felt comfortable enough to open up and share things that I had not shared before. She truly understood me which meant so much. The nuggets of wisdom that I walked away with I will forever treasure. She is truly an anointed Woman of God.” – B. W. (California)

“I just wanted to take a minute to share with you the force of nature that is Jewel Diamond Taylor. I first met Jewel back in the 90’s when she was a keynote speaker for African American Tour, a national tour featuring powerhouse African American women whose mission was to inspire and empower. Jewel was so awesome that she was asked to speak in every city for the many years that the tour ran. I was immediately captivated, and have followed her ever since. I’ve gone to her conferences and workshops in different states. I get her e-newsletters. I bought her books. Given her CD’s as gifts. Engaged her to facilitate our women’s weekend retreats (five times over the last 20 years, to date). and regularly visit her website. All are inspiriting and empowering.   What sets Jewel apart is her empathy, humor, style, insight, and spirit. Jewel excels at getting to the heart of the matter, and challenging women to take risks and embrace change. Jewel has taught me to see challenges as opportunities. She is unafraid to share her own testimony, and does so with grace, humility, and humor. Jewel has a wealth of information, and communicates it in a style that is both engaging and relatable. She doesn’t preach. She empowers! Jewel’s life-strategies are life-changing! She is that good!” ~ Roxanne Joy Johnson, New York
“I am a great fan of Jewel Diamond Taylor. She is a genius when it comes down to helping others. Her tremendous life coaching skills have been so helpful in helping me and others to deal with life, family situations and even MY marriage. She empowers me and so many others with her wealth of knowledge and wisdom that she spreads. ~ Kem Morris

Jewel Diamond Taylor, Motivator, Speaker, Life Coach, Author, Supreme Woman of God, what else can I say? Truly my first session with Jewel was an appointment ordained by God. Jewel is truly gifted in her profession and anointed by God. I would have never imagined that I would have an opportunity to work with Jewel from a one-on-one coaching perspective. All I can say is God opened the door. My first session was very informative and caused me to do some heartfelt soul searching. I thank God for Jewel’s book, “You Deserve More” because it gave me a voice around what I could not say of did not know how to say. I could relate to everything in the book.  I would strongly recommend that purchase. Make an investment in yourself.  During my session with Jewel, she asked probing questions with genuineness and sincerity to understand my expectations and needs. She was very transparent in sharing her experiences which assisted me in expressing and communicating what I was looking to change and improve. Jewel was empathetic and focused on ensuring I pursue my best self in all areas, personally, emotionally, professionally, spiritually, and financially.  The most amazing part of this experience was the very next morning after the session, I googled a particular topic on joy and so many of the things that Jewel discussed during my session were confirmed by this article that I searched. I don’t call this luck, I call that an anointed and divine session that God had orchestrated from the time I was being formed in my mother’s womb. Jewel, thank you for a wonderful first session. I look forward to many more. To those of you that are going through any challenge or obstacle, love yourself, invest in yourself because YOU are worth it. Be Blessed and as Jewel says, “Stay In The Light”. ~ Renee (Delaware)

“I could not afford some other women coaches that I researched, but I’m glad I found Dr. Jewel because she is affordable but also very knowledgeable, helpful and spiritually grounded. She really understands women’s issues. She is a wife, mother, sister, entrepreneur, minister and experienced depression and grief after losing her Mother and son to cancer. I felt very comfortable opening up my heart to her about my issues. She taught me that transparency leads to a triumph victory of healing. Thank you Dr. Jewel!” ~ Deborah E. in Dallas, TX
“All I can say is “WOW”! I thought it would be embarrassing or useless to have counseling. I was so wrong. My phone sessions with Dr. Jewel have been life-changing. So glad I found her web site and picked up the phone.” ~ Nikki, Oakland, CA

“Now that I am away from family, friends and my community stationed in Japan, I needed emotional support to cope with change. Thank you so much Jewel for offering your coaching services by SKYPE which helped to settle my spirit and regain my focus. God Bless you!” ~ Sandra B. – JAPAN

 

 

Dealing with Emotional Pain

“How do you metabolize the pain and difficult passages in your life?  Inner peace and maturing in our faith happens when we learn how to be reasonably comfortable with the uncontrollable.  Our culture teaches us to run from failure and sorrow instead of teaching us how to embrace and endure the adversity and loss.

Entering into the space of grief and loss teaches us that there is a legitimate place for sorrow as well as gratitude and hope.

We think we can avoid pain and be protected by our good deeds, pedigree, religious standing, accomplishments, acquisitions and masks.  Christians become saved and believe they are immune from problems. None of us can escape our appointed time of loss, disappointment, grief and emotional pain.  Pain, loss and sorrow are the admission price we pay for the privilege of living.

What discomfort are you avoiding?
Are you willing to confront your fears? Are you learning to cope, adapt, heal, let go and surrender?
Are you resisting loss, change and pain?
Are you making permanent decisions about temporary situations?
Are you isolating to avoid feeling ashamed, embarrassed, vulnerable or feeling insecure?
Do you think acknowledging your pain makes you weak?
Are you wearing a mask to survive and fit in?
Are you afraid people will judge you?
Have you lost confidence in yourself and faith in God?
Are you willing to break open your heart and allow the pain, fears and uncertainties flow out?
Are you willing to connect with others and have the courage to tell your story and speak up? What is your pain trying to tell you?

I’m becoming friends with pain so I don’t become hostage to the pain. I’m learning to let it pass through me like a visitor but not a resident that can move in and stay. The more courage I have to see and accept the pain…the less power is has to control and defeat me.”

~ Jewel Diamond Taylor, www. DoNotGiveUp.net

I was born for this

Jewel Diamond Taylor

jewel baby picture     “I was born in the Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington D. C.  After completing his duty in the U. S. Army, my father, Robert Lewis, became a gemologist and a jewelry store owner.   

   After he passed away I began to read his books and became very curious about gem stones.  There’s a machine called the “Rock Tumbler”.   It tumbles dirty, rough and dull rocks in water. It’s very noisy as the rocks start to spin, fly, and crash into each other as they rumble around in the water. After all the tumbling and rubbing up against each other, the rocks that were once rough and dull come out shining and polished.  They are transformed. 

    Whatever pressure, tumbling, polishing or storm you are going through in life it is a process called transformation.  Some might feel they are being punished when really God is polishing and perfecting you for a higher purpose.  It never feels good or feels fair.  In our lives we crash, tumble and rub up against other.  Some people polish us up and some crush us.

    I have heard testimonies, questions, and stories of pain and success from women from all walks of life.  I have seen women so wounded that they can’t see beyond their past.  I have seen resilient women overcome cancer, divorce, abuse, poverty, unemployment, loneliness, promiscuity, ridicule, racism, sexism, single parenting, betrayal, addictions, procrastination, depression, homeless, anxiety disorders, anger, rape, incest, prison, low self-esteem/worth, grief and shame.  I have seen women grow and take leaps of faith.  I have seen women walk out of fear and right into their purpose.  I have seen women sit on their assets and some women blossom and grow into entrepreneurship.  My clothes have been soaked with tears and my ears have heard untold secrets of shame, hurt, dysfunctional families, depression and drama.  I was born for this!  I was born to co-labor with my sisters on their path of discovery, healing, peace and restoration.  I was born for this.  I know that a lot of my sisters are so heavily burden with just surviving, that they don’t have a smile.  They don’t have time or know how to enjoy the benefits of sisterhood, serenity, or self-care.   I gladly accept the assignment to be a guidepost towards the path of emotional wellness, joy, sanity, peace, sisterhood, purpose, coping skills, self-care, faith, healing and trusting again.  I was born for this!   I have seen women beat incredible odds and some who complain, whine and easily give up.  Some choose to grow and some choose being a a victim.  Some women think they will shock with their stories and some choose to live as silent sufferers.  No story can scare me or cause me to judge you.

    If you are trying to build your business or ministry, write a book, lose weight, become debt free, finish college, find a job, improve or heal relationships, let go of the past or break an addiction…surrender to the PROCESS to get to your PROMISE. Your step by step actions, perseverance, faith and discipline will make the difference. You may get tired, but stay inspired. Anything is possible with faith and action. There are no short cuts. The “PROCESS” is the price of admission to walk through the doors of success.”

        The journey of a diamond is a long and complex process.  Diamonds are formed under extreme temperatures and pressure.  The diamond industry uses “fire polish” to bring sparkle and create a fiery diamond that unleashes the quality, color, beauty and light within.  There is a big difference seen once a diamond is polished with fire…it becomes a blazing gem after being recut!  Once a diamond has been recut and polished by fire, it flashes with color and light.  Are you ready to be in a room full of empowerment, information and women sharing their stories, wisdom, experiences and FIRE?

Coping with Stress and Pressure

“When you are feeling under the pressure of life, be careful not to lose your way, your faith or your identity.  When I see the word “pressure”… I see two (2) words, PRESS and SURE.

The heavy weight of maintaining your family, business, ministry, job, studies, finances and meeting deadliness can PRESS down on you so hard that you can begin to question God and yourself.  You could begin to ask, “Are you sure God I’m supposed to be doing this? Are you sure I am anointed, blessed, talented, covered, called and destined to do this?  The phone isn’t ringing. The sales are slow. My progress is slow.  I feel stuck.  No one seems interested in keeping the family, the team, business or ministry together. You may begin to question yourself under the pressure and ask yourself, “Am I sure I can do this?  Am I sure God will show up?  Am I sure things will work out?  Am I sure I am qualified and ready? I’m not sure I can cope and handle this difficult situation.

When you are confused and discouraged because of the pressures in your life you could begin to give up.  You could easily give up your calling or decide to change your direction and do something different because your identity in God has been stolen.

These questions under pressure can cause you to experience Identity Theft.  External and internal voices, feelings and situations can cause you to lose your confidence and trust in God and trust in yourself.

   The term “identity theft” comes from the escalating criminal acts of finances, identification and credit being stolen. Those who fight against identity theft and arrest the criminals, warn people to do three (3) things to avoid identity theft.

I think the three steps can also be applied to protecting your spiritual identity. 1) DETER – minimize risk and safeguard important information and documents.

2) DETECT suspicious activity by routinely monitoring your financial accounts and billing statements.  3) DEFEND your identity and alert creditors to follow certain procedures before they open new accounts in your name or make changes to your existing accounts.

Everyone needs to realize they are vulnerable to financial and spiritual identity theft.  Thieves are cunning.  They study your habits and routine.  They look for easy access to your information.  The enemy knows when you are feeling down, discouraged, hopeless and dePRESSed.  The enemy knows when you are vulnerable.

When it comes to proactive steps to protect your spiritual identity 1) DETER – minimize risk by protecting your heart and who you share your time, dreams, goals and conversations with.  2) DETECT suspicious activity by monitoring on a regular basis your relationships, what you say, how you feel and what you believe. Check your spirit to avoid depression, pity parties, sabotaging behavior like shame, guilt and procrastination.  3) DEFEND yourself.  Block the enemy from stealing your joy and purpose.  Before you slip into darkness and want to give up, remind yourself who you really are in God.  Speak your declarations and affirmations.  Proclaim again that you are worthy, qualified, blessed and resilient. Go for it.  Stick with it.  Don’t let internal or external enemies discourage you with doubt. Defending your dreams and goals is like hiding a priceless jewels so potential robbers won’t find them and steal them. Defend your purpose and those dreams and goals which are precious to you.  Defend and protect your identity in the Lord.  You are who God says you are. Encourage yourself and defend your worthiness, talents, dreams, purpose and faith in God.  Read Psalm 139:17-18 and remember how precious you are to God.

1 Peter 3:15 says, “Always  be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” ~ by Jewel Diamond Taylor

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Helplessly watching my son fade away in pain from cancer so quickly, I know we were all in a battle to save his life. We were stressed, weary, in shock, sad and felt helpless and disoriented. These are the same symptoms that describe what military soldiers feel when they return home from battle, especially when the events felt unpredictable and uncontrollable. Their anxiety is called Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  I don’t look like what I have been through.  Because of God’s grace I have “post-traumatic strength.”

The amazing gift of grace that I have experienced and want to share with you is that…even though I went through the most stressful and painful battle in my life (my son dying from cancer), I have not experienced post-traumatic stress. God has given me post-traumatic strength! I am resilient. I’ve been able to remain productive through my tears. Yes, there are overwhelming moments of feeling empty, nauseous, sad or bewildered… but I’m still standing. My faith was not robbed. I realized that the Lord can be with us where family and friends cannot. When you have grown in God’s grace through a spiritual battle you receive the gift of spiritual transformation. You begin to realize bad things do happen to good people. We will suffer in life. Strength comes from realizing you don’t have to suffer from your suffering. My spiritual transformation and feeling raw in my vulnerability revealed some insights which gave me strength instead of stress.

Through the bitter and sweet, the joy and pain, the bad and the good… we must learn how to ACTIVATE our faith in and out of season. We must learn how to MOTIVATE ourselves so the enemy does not overtake our gratitude, joy, health, peace, faith, hope, praise and trust in God. We must learn how CELEBRATE each day with thanksgiving, love, service to mankind and forgiveness. ”
Each time that I’ve been stretched to grow beyond my comfort zone, God was there. Each time I was stretched; I tapped into my power of creative problem solving, my flexibility, my sense of humor, my intelligence, my ability to let go, my inner strength and yes, stretched to give, be and do more than I ever knew was possible. I don’t look like what I have been through. And you don’t have to look like the abuse, dysfunction, grief, stress, sickness, struggle or heartache you have been through.

Life circumstances may be pressing you right now. Are you going to allow your challenges to stop you, stress you, strengthen you or stretch you?

Life circumstances may be pressing you right now. Are you going to allow your challenges to stop you, stress you, strengthen you or stretch you?
Miracles happen every day. Don’t let the spirit of defeat, depression and disappointment rob you of the wonder, blessings, favor, love and supernatural breakthroughs God can bring. God has given us the divine power to demolish strongholds. He is Baal-Perazim. He is the God of Breakthroughs. He wants to see us free. He wants to see us victorious, but we have to “grow” through the process.

I have been a Life Coach to hundreds of women over the years. I have heard painful stories of dysfunction, divorce, debt, disappointments and dreams deferred. Some of their stories sounded like mine. So many women, including myself, became burned out and had to WAKE UP to sadly realize we have been; asleep… living on auto-pilot… sleep walking through love-less marriages… struggling with child-rearing… grieving the loss of a parent child or friend… being silent suffers never speaking up… settling for a part-time relationship… tolerating selfish friends/relatives… walking on eggshells people-pleasing and just getting by hoping our man would change, our job would get better or our lives would just magically get better. Waking up and recovering from an emotional hangover is bitter and sweet. You can feel shocked and ashamed. But you also will feel free and finally exhale. You begin to breathe new oxygen. You begin to create a new normal for yourself.

Surfers Teaching Life Lessons

 “Lord speak to my heart. Tranquilize my soul. Let your balm heal my grief. I inhale your peace and exhale my stress. Renew my mind. Wash away my fears and tears. I want to learn the secret of the surfers who balance themselves and ride out the high waves. Instead of fighting the unavoidable strength and immensity of the ocean, through practice, resiliency and determination they learn to stand and balance themselves. Let me feel your rhythm Holy Spirit and experience the mystery and beauty of your creation.” ~ I AM a “Life Surfer” Jewel Diamond Taylor
take me to the ocean 2

I have never surfed in my life. But when I see the surfers waiting patiently for the right wave, I learn about patience. When I see them crash and get back on the board again, time after time, I learn about resiliency and perseverance. When I see them learn how to balance the huge waves, I am reminded to be strong. When I see them fluid and not resisting the strength of the waves, I’m reminded that I am not in control. Resisting what is happening is foolish. The master surfers don’t fight and resist the giant waves. The waves can be dangerous, scary, unpredictable, beautiful and deadly. It takes courage to ride a wave. They learn how waves work, where to look, where to sit on their board, how to position themselves, and sense when they should move in because the tide is changing. They don’t fight the force of nature. The big waves of life can destroy and swallow you or you can learn to ride the waves. Surfers don’t suffer from the illusion of control. They learn to relax and ride out the wave.
The ocean can be calm, rough, immense, scary, chaotic and beautiful. There is another whole world beneath. The world is covered with more ocean than land. I am continually intrigued and attracted to the message of the ocean and it’s surfers. I feel calm and renewed when I see the ocean.
I AM a “life surfer.” I am learning to ride out the tough times. I am learning to work on more balance. My courage is getting stronger to face the “waves” (e.g. loss, hurt, disappointment, grief, setbacks and frustration). I am not in control when the waves come. However, I am learning how to sit on my board and position myself to ride out the wave. I will stand even when it feels unsure, awkward and scary. I will plant my feet firmly in my faith and life purpose. I am patient and watch for the right wave (opportunity) to carry me to my destination. I will go out to the shore and see the beauty of life. I will breathe in God’s peace.
