Janet, tell us how you were guided to find an effortless path to your own destiny during an early trip to India.
Janet: It guided me to one of my paths, which was to interview masters from all over the world. In The Passion Test, we say that when you’re clear about what you choose to show up in your life, it will--and only to the extent that you’re clear. That was something I got really super clear on, because it was a great love of mine, as I went to India over five times.
Hadley: Aren’t you in India now?
Janet: Right now, I’m in Germany with Chris Atwood, my co-author of The Passion Test. He’s also my ex husband, my best friend and my business partner. I’m staying his wife, his wife’s mother and their two daughters. I’m their god mother.
Hadley: It’s extraordinary how you and Chris could go through a divorce, and you end up as loving, friendly business partners, as godmother to your former husband’s children and a friend to his wife. How did you make that happen?
Janet: The world is as you are. The world will reflect back to you how you are to yourself. Both Chris and I have practiced Transcendental Meditation for many years. That really helped with transition of getting a divorce. We didn’t go to war with each other. We just realized that the relationship, as we knew it, was over.
We also knew that it was insane for people who’d fallen in love, who’d said, “I love you forever” and then, just because something goes awry, they decide they can’t see each other again and become mortal enemies. Chris and I found that insane.
Here’s someone you loved more than anyone in the world. Just because they didn’t do things your way or you didn’t do it their way, you think you can’t be in each other’s world. We thought, “How sad is that.” Chris and I also are practitioners of the work of Byron Katie.

Hadley: I love her “turnaround procedure.”
Janet. It’s a process to undo limiting beliefs. Byron Katie says that when you’re attached to how things should be instead of how things are, you’ll feel one of three things: pain, separation and suffering.
