Wide Awake Woman: Jeanne Verger

Check out this beautifully written blog post about my personal journey and my jewelry biz. Jensy Scarola shares her love by inspiring women to see their inner beauty and own their self-expression. I am honored to be featured this month.
Life is so full and abundant for me right now, I am grateful for every magical moment.
Tell us a bit about you: 
For the past 10 years I have worked as an advertising and creative director at Warner Bros Records and for a full-service advertising agency. I loved every minute of my advertising career but a few years ago I started on my journey to inner well-being and my spiritual path. I unlocked many doors that I had never opened in my life up until that moment. My desires in life shifted and that little girl who loved being the creative designer showed up and was ready to express herself within my heart as an adult.  I listened and took the scariest leap of my life. I left the title and security of being a creative director for other brands and devoted my creative expression to share what I stand for in my life…which is love, self-expression, inspiration, seeing the beauty and potential of others, and serving as a reflection for their own transformation

What was the catalyst to Your Wide Awakening? 

About 6 years ago, I started to ask the deeper questions in life, like what is my purpose, how am I showing up in the world and are there deeper layers to who I think I am? Once these questions started, they never stopped. In 2006 I was introduced to an amazing Master’s Degree program for Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. In this program I was able to awaken a part of me that I had not yet discovered. A part that was more interested in uncovering my gifts, talents and loving heart while unlearning conditioned ways of viewing the world. I blossomed in this 2-year program and it was the greatest gift I have ever given myself.

I believe everything happens for a reason. Each path we choose, each path we don’t choose… they all take us to our learning lessons, our life’s curriculum. The moment I started to ask the deeper questions of life, my life changed. It took me many years of unlearning old ways of being and replaced them with updated more empowering thoughts and views that gave me a new purpose in life. By knowing who I am, trusting my truth and staying open to taking a risk, I understand that life is all about the journey and not about the outcome. If I did not take the time in my life to do the inner work, my creativity would not have had a safe place to be developed and my jewelry business would not have been born.

How did you go from thinking with your heart and not your head? 

My first thought to this question is that I have learned the art of taking personal response-ability for my thoughts, actions and words. I make a conscious choice everyday to live from my heart and to let go of negative energy right away. By understanding that everyone is this world is doing the best they know how to do, I can have compassion for how each person in my life shows up. When I do start to feel the energy of either fear, being accused, personally attacked etc….before I react, I take a deep breath, try to separate my emotional feelings and see the facts of what is going on. Once I am able to drop my emotional charge, I then approach the situation from a balanced and solution-based place in my heart. 

What tools, spiritual and/or practical do you use daily to continue living a miraculous, authentic life? 

A few tools that I use in my everyday life are heart-centered listening, not taking things personal, trusting my voice and that what I have to say and express is vaild and important and seeing the loving essence in all. When I use these tools daily, my day unfold with grace and openness. 

I have a beautiful morning spiritual practice where I wake up at 5:30am, I make myself a hot cup of ginger tea (sometimes I indulge with a cup of coffee) and I have a combo of practices. I start with a 15 min meditation which then leads into chanting the Maha Mantra on my harmonium, which then leads into writing in my journal and then I read a few pages from a spiritual book of choice. Sometimes I will also start my day with a few Sun Salutations and yoga poses when I am not going to the gym that day. 

By having this consistent morning practice, I start my day connecting to spirit, my highest self, my body, breath and soul. I then am filled up to go out into the world and share my heart with everyone I encounter.

How do you deal with stress?

I handle stress in my life by eating healthy food, doing yoga, meditating, stopping many times during the day to take a deep breath, keep my thoughts pure and positive, spending quality time with friends and family and always following my heart and intuition. When all these factors are in full expression in my life, stress just does not have room to fit in and if it does, it only lasts for a short sec. 

What is your favorite quote?

“Peace comes from within. Do not see it without.” – Buddha

I love this quote because it always reminds me to go within to resolve all challenges and find my inner guru. 

What role does your jewelry play in the spiritual lives of those who purchase and wear your pieces? 

The juiciness of life lives in the present moment and when we keep our thoughts positive we can create from a more grounded and powerful place in life. By wearing my empowering jewelry, you are reminded that you can attract anything your heart desires by holding a positive vision through repeating a daily affirmation. When faced with decisions, challenges or negative situations, touch or hold your necklace and feel the healing properties of the gemstones combined with your personal affirmation, knowing that you have the strength to move forward with grace and ease.
My mission is to support and celebrate your life through jewelry designed with positive intention that serves as an anchor to remind yourself that you are living your highest self-expression and purpose in life.

Just love it! Her intentions are straight from the heart! 

Love & Light,

Personalizing your jewelry is a great way to create an inspirational tool for you to remind yourself of a quality or way of thinking that you would like to embody more in everyday life. I love to do this with my jewelry as it then serves two purposes. First, the beauty and design of the jewelry piece adds that perfect accent to my outfit making me feel beautiful and radiant. Second, by infusing my jewelry piece with a powerful affirmation, it keeps me feeling connected to my highest-self and purpose in life. Below is a quick way for you to infuse your own jewelry and empower yourself to live a life you love. 


Find a quiet spot in your home or out in nature where you can sit comfortably. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, calming your mind and connecting with your higher self. Now, with your quality in mind and your jewelry piece in hand, ask yourself: What does it feel like to embody _____ (speak your quality- examples: Love, Abundance, Creativity, Well-Being).

Breathe into the quality, embodying it and infusing your jewelry piece with the feeling of your quality. From this place, create your affirmation or mantra. Example: I AM gracefully embodying Courage as I show up for myself each day with confidence, empowerment and self-love. Allow yourself the opportunity to feel into your quality and affirmation/mantra repeating it out loud or internally over and over until you can feel it in your heart.  When you are done, write your affirmation down and keep it in a place where you can see it every day and repeat it out loud a few times each day. 

You are now ready to wear your beautiful and powerful jewelry piece. Know that this piece is a constant reminder of the quality you now embody. When faced with challenges or decisions, hold or touch your jewelry piece and feel into the affirmation invoking the quality within. By doing this, you are actively working to cultivate that quality in your life each day and feeling it as you wear your elegant and empowering jewelry.
