Welcome to Sacred Knowledge Circle with Jeanette O'Donnal

I created Sacred Knowledge Circle to offer inspirational tips to creating a more fulfilled lifestyle with increased personal integrity, abundant health, and robust sensuality!

In my books, along with my blog, freelance articles, and events, I share with you ancient wisdom, all loaded with inspiration for a more balanced lifestyle. Simple techniques for love, relationships, success and prosperity help you create what you have been dreaming about. These bits of information restore your vigor and revive your feeling of joy!

My book: The Making of a Master (see below) is a self-help book about self-esteem. My second book, The Feathered Serpent Speaks (see below), is an example of how personal transformation refines your life. As my own experiment, I discovered the value of wisdom, by applying certain principles into my daily life. In this book I share this story with you.

If you'd like more information about my Consultations, Intuitive Readings, and Workshops, you can also e-mail me. 


Let's begin right now with some simple suggestions....

Sensuality, (the use of your senses) such as looking at colorful foods, feeling your efforts of intentional relationships, smelling a rose, taking a warm bath, eating a healthy meal, and much more, play a very  important part in lifestyles filled with the joy of living.

Infuse your mind with the simple suggestions on the bar to the right. Begin to create a joy-filled life with what I call: the "classic menu." This menu includes key elements of HOSPITALITY, the magic of lifestyles saturated with love!

Another great way to begin anything new is by getting an intuitive reading, for clarity and depth. Email me with "I want a Reading" on the subject line. Click here

Sending balanced energy your way, ~ Jeanette

Jeanette's Bio

As an expert "leader" in Personal Excellence Education, Jeanette O’Donnal has seen and heard "leadership" defined numerous ways over the years. She often asks: Is it mentor charisma and effective presentation delivery? Could it be the use of impressive metaphors and inspirational examples of life experiences? Is it well-defined perception? Is it about timing? Is "leadership" about knowing that certain participants come innately ready to learn? Or, is there a different story?

Jeanette's views about leadership and education are radically different than most definitions. With over five decades of public speaking, mentoring, life coaching, public service experience, "in the grass-roots" community involvement, and most importantly, real-life self-application of principles, she knows that education is a dynamic everyday experience for everyone.

It is about self-awareness and about enthusiasm for life. Jeanette, a legitimate Mayan Shaman and a "self-esteem" guru, understands clearly the mind/body connection and the entanglement between healthy sensuality, quality of life, and high self-esteem. She uses proven techniques that elicit, induce, and promote psycho-synthesis, a subtle blend of psychology of self-actualization and a philosophy in the art of blissful living.

Jeanette intentionally brings to the forefront of her interactions an abundance of wisdom by fusing symbiotic audience engagement and discussion of inspiring real-life stories. Her bold yet charismatic outlook on life leaves others with a desire to change what they once thought might not be possible.

Her dynamic and pressure-free message helps you feel like you have in some way attained emotional intelligence. Mental clarity helps you accelerate job performance and increase vitality in health. Your relaxation and motivation increases and your attitudes are enhanced. Jeanette connects with others on an individual level. Sometimes known as "Psychopractor" for her innate ability to give an "attitude adjustment," she makes your heart sings with joy from having discovered your personal beauty through self-reflection. You begin to hear the splendid harmony of nature within you, after coming in contact with Jeanette. You feel an increase in self-awareness and confidence helping you eliminate fears and limiting emotions. You come away with reduced stress and less frustrations feeling like you have removed depression and sadness; you are incredibly clear about addictive behaviors. You come away feeling like a master, creating life deliberately and knowing how easy it is to mold experiences into happiness.

To be aware and alive in the now is important in life, because as Jeanette puts it: "Life is truly a great adventure!" O'Donnal is naturally curious, helpful, and creative. Others perceive her as captivating, energetic, outgoing, daring and fearless in her approach to life, and spontaneously interactive with any new environment.


Her successes include:

In 2015, Jeanette established "Grow In Excellence!", a consulting business that helps others establish Excellence as an ongoing part of their life. O’Donnal continues to work with the best and brightest in the field of self-empowerment.

She was involved with ground-work and inception of Youth at Risk Program in Phoenix. She was also a motivational speaker at career orientation workshops for high school seniors and coached juveniles with court appointed programs. She was a facilitator (with her gentle yet firm conversational coaching and delivery skills) in various city, state, and federal educational agencies. Jeanette created Sacred Knowledge Circle, a nonprofit group for professionals aspiring for excellence.

In Nevada, Jeanette worked for Las Vegas YMCA and created personal excellence programs for the Hispanic community. She went on to become a special commissioner and consultant to state Governor Miller on Hispanic community issues.
