490 shares powerful stories coupled with an eye-opening forgiveness technique that empowers anyone to experience every day with strength and clarity.
You cannot be happy, healthy, or step into your purpose until you know and understand fully three things about yourself: your love language, fear triggers, and fear language. Knowing this changes everything!
Have you ever noticed that the things that start a conflict are offences committed by someone that violates a trust and a stated or unstated agreement? Have you also noticed it is not just the offence that matters, but the interpretation of the offence? Our interpretation depends on a whole lot of things that psychologists and so many others have spent years trying to figure out. In this book of compelling stories paired with eye-opening truths, Dr. Joan Samuels-Dennis introduces us to the room – a moment in time we must all forgive before we can transform into the beautiful and powerful being we were born to be. The imagery, challenges, and love woven into this book are vital for such a time as this.
Moving beyond principles and theories of the mind, 490 takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to discover the thing we all seek and provides a roadmap for attaining the highest level of personal growth and spiritual development. This book will offer you opportunities to peer into your room and to begin the journey of fully pursuing your peace. It will allow you to heal past pains and construct new patterns of thinking, speaking, and behaving that exude compassionate understanding, acceptance, and love for yourself and all others. It will show you a new way to live, a way that transforms the heart, soul and mind!

About the Author
She is an adjunct professor with the School of Nursing at Trinity Western University in British Columbia, Canada. She holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing from the University of Western Ontario. She established Becoming Inc. in response to a deep and spiritually driven desire to teach about the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. Her desire is to see every individual transform into the gracious and beautiful beings that they were born to be!
Dr. Joan practices a holistic style of forgiveness that helps people overcome a myriad of mental and physical health problems. The efficacy of this innovative technique lies in its ability to identify a moment in time she calls "the room"-the year, month and day the individual first experienced something that caused overwhelming fear.
Dr. Joan teaches every individual how to examine that moment and find three critical pieces of information: their love language, fear triggers and fear language. Using information embedded in the room, Dr. Joan shows each client the pattern of fear they must overcome. She makes a bold statement: "Mental illnesses like depression and anxiety are simply our resistance to the spiritual lessons we must learn. However, the lessons once learned, create peace within and awaken us to our Divine purpose."
Dr. Joan is the creator of the Becoming Book Project, an anthology written by women about their transitions from places of struggle to that state of being called love. On July 7th each year, she hosts a Truth, Forgiveness and Reconciliation Conference that focuses on a human rights issue affecting our most vulnerable populations. Her goal is to bring healing to the poor and vulnerable who continue to experience the generational consequences of separation and disconnection from our Creator.
