Intuitive Readings & Life Coaching
- Faith, 16, Oregon
"The reason I come to Joanie is because she listens to me with her full attention, not only listens but truly understands. She cares about helping me and bringing me into a higher more centered state of being so I can heal from the root of my pain. Joanie reconnects me to my true self and the everlasting peace and relief within myself. After my readings with her I feel so fresh. I feel new and free from my troubles, as if they aren't so hard to go through anymore. In fact I become enthusiastic about nurturing myself. Healing has never felt so relieving and rewarding before. So I guess you could say I feel whole again. This wholeness has entirely effected my life! Joanie has saved my life. I can go about my day in a more relaxed state of mind. I am much more eager to problem solve with a clearer open mind. Problems are not problems anymore. I feel creative and connected to the divine but at the same time grounded. My authentic expression easily flows through my being! I feel so blessed and grateful to know this master healer! I deeply appreciate the ways that she has and continues to help me and understand me like no one else can."

"Joanie's gift to the world is to have the courage to be an intuitive. To be present, to really listen, to commit to the process, to set her self aside to be of service. I have gaained a much deeper understanding of myself. I gained a bigger, spiritual view of my everyday events to help me take the next steps forward.I want to be the best me, and this gave me a clarified focus.
What she brings- commitment to being present, bringing forth the truth, helping others her own personal growth
What I get- clarity, inspiration,focus,support"
Paula – 57 – Oregon
"I was overwhelmed by the thought of moving. I didn't know where to start. I really didn't see how an organizer could help me. Boy was I wrong...
Joanie came over once or twice weekly to help with 1 concrete project until it was done. ( closet, pictures,clothes, memorabilia, family treasures, etc.)
She taught me the process, and streamlined it so my job was yes,no or maybe. She helped me with the physical part of transporting to appropriate donation centers. She helped by not judging, just being there to get the job done. It was incredibly helpful. She was flexible and understanding, and brought the energy to get the job done!
She brings energy, focus, knowledge and enthusiasm to every client."
Winnie – age 64 – Hawaii
"I have had numerous readings with Joanie over the course of several years, seeking assistance in moving through stagnant situations and limiting beliefs. She has the unique ability to tap into other-worldly resources, different from what we can tap into in this physical realm. This gave me a broader perspective on how to live my life. I appreciated the way she made suggestions without telling me what to do. I have always left with a feeling of clarity and a sense of renewed expectations or possibilities. I wholeheartedly recommend Joanie, and have every intention of seeking her guidance in the future."
Teena age 40 – Eugene
"I have had several channeling sessions with Joanie and have had others with other channels. I find Joanie to be very pure in nature and clear in her interpatations. I have had issues of confusion in my life become very clear via my work with Joanie. I feel she has helped me greatly in moving forward in areas of my life that I felt stuck. She is the real deal!"
Lela – age 30 – Oregon
"I came to Joanie to gain some clarity about where I should head next in my life and to see if their were any major blocks that were keeping me from moving forward in my life.
During my reading I was surprised, delighted, amazed and at times dumbfounded. She really opened me up to see the things in myself that I needed to remember. I was also very intrigued and humbled by her abilities of open communication that she has with her (the) spirit guides.
I was having epiphanies for weeks after my reading. I definitely got what I came for and much much more!
Thanks Joanie for doing what you do with grace, power, and love!!! If I feel I need a reading I will call Joanie first and foremost!
Anita - age 56 – Oregon
To know & work with Joan Frances Proctor is surrendering to knowing yourself.
This requires a fair amount of fearlessness.
Her inquiries lead toward forward motion, as truth is revealed.
And no matter what I choose "to do" with this information, at the least, it is a more informed choice!"
Heidi – age 32 – Oregon
"Joanie is an extraordinary person. She is a fountain of love and wisdom, and is constantly presenting me with pointed truths. She gently guides me to the heart of whatever discontent I am experiencing and (helps me see how to move) gives me direction towards joy. With her help, I have come to understand abundantly more about myself and the universe. I value the work we have done together beyond words.”
Azure – age 31 - Eugene
"I came for a reading with Joanie for clarity about my life's direction and why things felt so funny and out of place at the time. During the session there was time and time again when the voice of truth and reason came through. It expressed what I knew was true but was unwilling to see for myself. Working with Joanie helped me to see clearly things I hadn’t understood before, and that these things could easily be changed. I felt throughout our adventure together more clarity and a deeper sense of purpose and increased awareness that the universe is always supporting me. That all I need to do is ask and be willing to receive!!!! Wow! Right!
I am so grateful for our time together!! Joanie's super good at what she does and the thing I love the most is that she is a real genuine person with a wonderful sense of humor. She is willing to say the good stuff with passion and power, and she will tell you the damn truth, even if you don't want to hear it, and that makes all the difference. I Love that about her!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blessings always and in all ways, Azure"
Sheri – age 62 – Eugene
"I hope you realize the great sense of a lifted burden I feel since all your fantastic help to unclutter and organize my house. The feeling of freedom is exquisite AND I am accomplishing so much more that I would have imagined. Beyond all this the peace, permission and validation to be comfortable with everything in all areas of my life is outstanding. I am forever grateful for all your fine help. Thank you."

“Touring through Egypt with Explorations of Light was a dream come true! Our first activity in Cairo was a sunset felucca cruise on the Nile. After 20 hours on an airplane, the brisk Nile breeze blew away all of our travel fatigue, leaving the group and myself refreshed and ready to start our Egyptian Adventure.
The Pyramids and Sphinx were a long anticipated experience, I was expecting to feel ancient Egyptian wisdom but I was a little disappointed. The constant presence of the Egyptian Guards and endless requests to buy things overshadowed whatever wisdom was there. The ancientness I was expecting at the Pyramids was found at the Hathor Temple near Luxor. That is where I felt the timeless wisdom of Egypt.
The felucca cruise on the Nile in Aswan with Captain Sugar and Captain Ahmed, as well as swimming in the Nile were nothing short of spectacular! There was music, drumming, singing, and limitless sunshine!
When we went to Abydos, Temple of Horus, we were spontaneously invited into a local family’s garden for lunch. It was a beautiful shaded setting beside a serene pond, which was such a relief after a morning in the hot sun. The woman of the house was especially welcoming and she invited us inside her home. Imagine our surprise in finding the corner of the living room full of chickens, not like our houses in America! Chickens aside it was a special moment to see how proud she was of her home. We also visited 2 other Egyptian homes and were enthusiastically welcomed at all of them. They didn’t all have chickens.
I can honestly say that my biggest surprise was our Desert Safari. I‘ll admit I was a little nervous about 5 days in the desert, I was thinking, “What are we going to do for 5 days?” I was blown away by the transformative power of the Desert. The wide spread variety in the landscape was awe-inspiring, it was so much more than just sand and rocks, the vastness took my breath away! I left the desert wanting more time there.
Every day brought new discoveries! Joanie’s personal connection with the people she works with added a really special depth to our trip.I look forward to returning to Egypt someday.”
William – age 60 – Virginia
"The highlight for me during my trip to Egypt with Explorations of Light with Joanie as our guide was the Desert Safari. The expansive jaw-dropping vistas truly left me speechless. The Temples were magnificent in their size and ancientness.
Being on the Nile River was a dream come true, it was one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever been on. And at 100 feet meters deep I had no idea it was so deep. It is a massive River fully deserving of fame associated with it.
The Egyptians that Joanie works with are her friends. This added an intimacy and depth I don’t think other tours offer, we weren’t just seeing Egypt we were visiting her second home and we could feel that with everyone we met. We were treated like friends instead of tourists. The feeling of Welcome was present everywhere we went from Hotels to Homes."

“Joanie is so much more than just a tour guide illuminating sites, she brings you to the life of Egypt: its people. When you meet Egyptians who call Joanie family, these people who have so little yet give so much and who truly live from their hearts, only then will you know the true Egypt. There are so many distractions in modern society, so many layers; Joanie will take you to places where those layers are stripped away, places to heal and be filled with Love.”
Silvana - 54 - New York
“I ran into Joanie at the local Saturday Market where she shared with me that she had been living in Egypt and is now giving tours of Egypt. I was enthralled! It has always been a dream of me to go and explore Egypt. Joanie went on to share with me that she heading to Egypt to do some research for future tours and I was welcome to meet her there. I did and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. For the next 5 weeks I had my own personal tour guide through almost all of Egypt.
I have traveled quite a bit and I don’t travel like the typical tourist. I prefer to immerse myself in the culture and daily life of the people to really feel the heart and soul of the places I visit. Having Joanie as a tour guide was amazing and far exceeded what I had envisioned. Her knowledge of the culture and her experience in the country gave me access to the real Egypt not found on traditional tours.
During our stay in Cairo I was welcomed into modern Egyptian homes, I was surprised that they weren’t very different from American homes. Is this how all Egyptians live, I wondered?
Our next adventure was when we took the overnight train to Aswan, where we were met by a Nubian friend of Joanie’s who took us to his family home on Elephantine Island. We were welcomed into his home by his Wife, Mother and Sister with open arms. This Egyptian home was very different than the modern Egyptian homes I had been to in Cairo. This was a rustic almost 3rd world dwelling. Despite the roughness it was warm and full of laughter. The 3 days we spent in Aswan seeing the temples, swimming in the Nile and doing an overnight felucca cruise down the beautiful Nile were incredibly relaxing.
One of my favorite things was when we took a 5 day 4 night Desert Safari through the White Desert as we headed towards Siwa Oasis. It was only 4 of us, Joanie and I and two desert guides, Mohammed and Karim, and we had the time of our lives. Traditionally when you go on a Desert Safari the guides take care of everything, but because it was just the 4 of us Joanie and I cooked dinner for them a few nights. We had so much fun shaking things up! In addition to the rewarding personal interactions, the desert landscape continually surprised me. And the various springs provided a welcome relief to the desert heat.
My favorite stay was in Siwa Oasis where it felt the most like home. Since Joanie lives there when she is in Egypt for extended periods of time the personal connections were many and varied. I was welcomed everywhere I went and made a few of my own friends as well. The timelessness of Siwa creates an air of other worldliness. It is unlike any place I visited in Egypt. I am eagerly anticipating my return to this special place.
Joanie has known the guides she uses for years and has a personal friendship with each of them, which creates an immense amount of respect between them. Joanie is personable and is well loved by many Egyptian people, they call her Gamila, which means beautiful, and she is!
I was so well taken care of and not once did I feel unsafe or threatened. It was one of the BEST trips that I have been on. It was life changing for me and I enjoyed it so much that I am already planning on taking another trip with her. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Explorations of Light with Joanie as your guide.”
Paula - 57 - Oregon
“For me, traveling to Egypt was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. The small size of our group (5 people) gave the experience an intimacy that would have been lost if traveling with a larger group. Seeing the temples and tombs was interesting but my biggest surprise was the Western Desert Safari. It was unlike what I expected or had assumed that a desert would be like. I was worried it would be hard, but it wasn’t. It was challenging and encouraging simultaneously. The ever-changing desert landscape took my breath away more than once, it seemed at every turn the vista would change. The feeling of freedom and the vastness of the desert filled me with a unique sense of hope and unlimited potential. Joanie of Explorations of Light was a calm, fun and considerate guide, her personal connections with the people of Egypt made the trip that much more special. I heartily recommend experiencing Egypt with her.”
