Dr Janin, using her book “A Lifetime of Personal Power” as source, presents the stages of life’s journey and explores the challenges and opportunities inherent in each of these.

Referencing her daily work of coaching people and their projects, Janin shares her views on how to transform the passage of time in your life into a passage of personal power.

“There are indeed challenges and opportunities at all ages. Knowing that there is a new source of power to be found with every seven-year time gate we pass through is enlightening. And it gives hope.”

The Life Stages

Each phase of our life holds its distinct characteristics and its unique opportunities for acquiring the qualities that pertain to those years: the footloose freedom in our early 20s, goal achievement in our 30s, soul-searching reflection in our 40s … and so on.

We tend to think about age categories as decades: periods of 10 years. But scientific and spiritual research has shown that our life’s journey is, in fact, subdivided into 7-year cycles; each distinct from the other yet interlinked in the life cycle with each phase handing on a guiding quality to the next.
