“JD Messinger is a rare combination of corporate visionary, spiritual teacher, and inspirational coach. If you combined one third of Tom Peters, Deepak Chopra, and Tony Robins you are staring at JD.” ~ Jim Robinson, former President of ABC Radio Networks

I started working with JD when I was in the middle of what felt like a quarter life crisis. Torn between the corporate world and wanting to follow my heart, I was confused about which direction to pursue. I went to JD for help.  Right off the bat, JD enabled me with the tools I was missing to start creating change. By getting clear about my intentions, grounding my energy, and learning how to listen to my intuition, noticeable change started taking place. Rather than resisting my circumstances, I learned how to accept them. Instead of avoiding problems, I learned how to move through them. In place of wanting a new reality, I learned how to create one. Perhaps the most impactful experience in my time with JD was the hypnotic regression he offered. JD guided me through the depths of my subconscious in order to identify the root causes of my limited belief system. Through shining awareness on these otherwise unconscious beliefs, I was able to find Truth, let go of old emotional baggage, and freely create and affirm a reality of abundance and joy. I have worked with many life coaches throughout my time, none of which created tangible change as quickly and consciously as JD. JD helped me master my inner game which allowed for a remarkable transformation of my outer game. I have only experienced more joy, peace, and abundance since our work together as well as heightened awareness of the unreality of old limited beliefs that no longer serve me." ~ Eric Petro

"You saved my life. Literally! I am eternally grateful.” ~ Anonymous

That's JD's gift, getting you aligned in and in touch with your true power." ~ Jonah Larkin, founder and CEO of Jonah Larkin

“It’s really amazing how your weekly messages and tips arrive just as I need them! I just love it!” ~ Jeff Street

“JD Messinger is an exceptional speaker and teacher.  Compelled by his passion that was forged in the furnace of personal experience, JD leads us on a journey of faith and doubt, through the tunnel into the “light.”  My undergraduate students, themselves studying various theories on the nature of religion, found him mesmerizing.  He’s a true messenger-an evangelist-of reason and faith, of the unity of science and religion. In the words of Malcolm Muggeridge, JD desires to lead us out of the “theater of the absurd” into the “theater of fearful symmetry.”  One may find herself skeptical, one may find himself resistant, one may stand back in utter disbelief…but it is still no less tempting to hop on his bus!  Scholars of religion and theology, East and West, will find much to engage in JD’s work.” ~Todd Penner, Ph.D.; Gould H. and Marie Cloud Professor of Religious Studies; Austin College

“You are the most gifted and talented speaker I have ever heard.”~ Admiral, USN

“JD Messinger is one of those rare persons inspired to help change the world by reminding us all of the laws of essence and of life that Sir John Templeton encourages as so important in our times. JD, you do a spectacular job, pouring your heart and mind into a program with immense potential to really change how we live. We are all better off thanks to your vision.”~ Dr. Stephen Post, President of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, Professor of Bioethics, Philosophy and Religion, Case Western Reserve University

“I want to shower you with appreciation!” ~ Elaine Torres

“I have found it a great privilege to work with JD Messinger in order to help clarify some of the many misconceptions that plague our society today. Everyone, whether fundamentalist believer, atheist, or agnostic, is searching for the answers to what I have called The Four Great Questions; Who Am I, Where Did I Come From, What Should I Do, and Where Am I Going? JD Messinger’s work is helping in a very powerful way to bring enlightenment and understanding to countless numbers of people who are searching for answers to those Big Questions of life. I know the effectiveness of his work and I am proud to be associated with it.”~ Miceal Ledwith, L.Ph., L.D., D.D., LL.D. Professor of Systematic Theology, Maynooth College, Ireland, subsequently President of the University. A member of the International Theological Commission for 17 years.

“For all of eternity mankind has searched for the answers to what JD refers to as the ‘Big Questions’ – who am I, where did I come from, why am I here and where are we going? I have waited for thirty five years for a source of knowledge that helps answer these Big Questions and I want to thank JD Messinger for helping share the knowledge.”~ Uri Geller, world famous mentalist and mystifier
