The Heroine’s Journey of Joanna Pilatowicz

What is the best thing that I love about my work? Freedom of my time, effort, tasks, connections, being in control and a feeling of doing what I value.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? Balance = health on every level, a constant connection to the highest qualities of inspiration, joy, and expansion.
What is my greatest fear? Paralyzing general fear that makes you lose clarity.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Eating sweets 😉 There are so many! That would be quite a list, but not all are famous.
Which living persons in my profession do i most admire?  I value those who truly care about self-awareness, others, environment, nature, art, and science.
What is my greatest extravagance? That is still ahead of me. But I love perfumes and 5 stars hotels.
On what occasion would I lie?  If that would save someone’s life, why not?
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? The pressure of promotion and too many things that others try to impose on you as necessary. It takes skills to differentiate what is necessary.
When and where was I the happiest, in my work?   I have a great feeling while dancing, whether I perform or teach. I love to connect with other similar minded people and create new projects. I enjoy the peace while painting and the inspiration I see in the eyes of my students, readers, friends… Basically whatever I do the happiest moment is when things tend to happen effortlessly.
If I could, what would I change about myself? These years I feel I am in a constant process of change 😉  I am currently working on more focus as I am so easily distracted by all the inspiring things that want to grab my attention.
What is my greatest achievement in work? As an energy worker, although I cannot prove it, it seems I healed myself a few times and helped out others. As a coach, the greatest thing is when you inspire someone so much, his or her life will dramatically change for the better. Someone told me once, I will never be a dancer, get a degree at university and number of other things. Well, I know why they said it, but I am glad I went beyond all these limitations.
Where would I most like to live? Close to the beach in a nice city where I can speak English with people. In one of my dreams, a voice was very clear about my happy place: where the snow ends and the sand begins. Does someone know where that would be? 😉
What is my most treasured possession? I write a lot so it seems it is my computer.
What is my most marked characteristic? Perseverance. It seems I cannot give up. I tried, of course, many times. It just doesn’t work for me. My mind always will present me with another idea.
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? My apartment and park near the river. I love both.
What is my favorite place to eat and drink, in my city? I don’t have one. Vibes of places I go to are very important to me, but that is mostly while traveling so I rarely can go back to them.
What books influenced my life and how? “Never ending story”  I got this book before I watch the movie as a kid. Perhaps that is why I write paranormal books ;).  I love deep fantasy books, also everything about psychology, philosophy, conspiracy, science fiction, ancient scripts (translated of course 😉 teaching about spiritual techniques to access a higher state of being.
Who are my favorite writers? Wow! I will also save you the full list here, but they are always the ones with a deeper understanding of realities not only the consensus one. At this moment I will mention only a few: Terry Pratchett, Margit Sandemo, Andrzej Sapkowski. Ursula Le. Guin, Ann Rice, Arnold Mindell, Amy Mindell, Yogananda, Deborah Harkness…
You Only Die Once. What music would I listen on my last day? I hope my own ;). I wouldn’t be able to choose one. People would have to play for me the whole albums. I would probably keep dying slowly 😉 Jazz, RnB, alternative, drums….
Who is my hero or heroine in fiction? Mary Poppins, someone who accommodates two realities in one, the paranormal, spiritual and managing the mundane tasks of everyday life.
Who are my heroes and heroines in real life? Everyone I learn from. I had great teachers along the way and their inspirations carry me still. I almost feel that presence goes with me.
Which movie would I recommend to see once in a lifetime?  Oh no! I won’t even start, there are so many! If an alien would land now, I would suggest him to go through the whole history of the cinema! And to keep going through current greatest TV shows!
What role plays art in my life and work? Due to my profession, I would say I am THAT. 😉 The answer is simply: art for me is like breathing.
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My dear friends and some also in the same profession.
Whom would I like to work with in 2019? With the Hay House publishers 😉
Which people in my profession would i love to meet in 2019? Dedicated creatives who would like to be part of new projects and part of the international community that promotes self-awareness, knowledge and trusted collaborations.
What project, in 2019, am I looking forward to work on? I am currently in the middle of publishing my series of “The Oracle” in Polish and English language. I would love to also start my new series and the first TV show.
Where can you see me or my work in 2019?  https://www.youtube.com/user/JoannaJosels
What do the words “Passion Never Retires” mean to me? Freelancers and artists never retire 😉 To me, passion is to be alive.
Which creative heroines should Peter invite to tell their story? Iwona Gilarska, Joan van der Mast, Elke Verner, Simone Camirelli, Christina Liakopoyloy, Ela Corcoran,
