Private Sessions

What will I get out of a Private Sessions with Janet Richmond?
You will have an opportunity to tackle the issues or problems that are personal to you alone, and to tailor techniques and exercises to the specific goals you want to accomplish.

Should I book a Private Session or just get the techniques from the book?
Both are equally effective. But the Neutralizing process is a new one and new ideas mean in some ways starting from scratch. Even for those with a real commitment to doing the work on themselves the initial learning curve can be a difficult hump to get over. It's not unlike starting on a physical exercise program at the gym, determined to get in shape and finding that once you get there to workout for the first time, you are just not sure where to start. The Private Sessions can get you to the place where you can do the Neutralizations and other parts of the process confidently. Once you are firmly in the process you will be able to continue on your own.

How long do Private Sessions last?
Approximately 1 hour.

Where and when are the Private Sessions conducted?
They are conducted over the phone or in person at a time that is convenient for both parties. Janet is located in North Hollywood, California. There is absolutely no difference in the quality of help or information if the session is held over the phone. 

How much do Private Sessions with Janet Richmond cost?
The cost is $125 for one or $300 for three sessions. Although many issues can be successfulyy addressed in just one session, Janet has found that the three-part series of sessions is the best way to really get to the heart of difficult issues and address and Neutralize the negative patterns that keep you from experiencing life at the highest level.

Catalytic Art

What medium do you use?
Janet uses pastels, pens, colored pencils and charcoals.

What type of canvas do you use?
All Catalytic art is created using acid-free Bristol paper with a vellum surface.

Can I request a different paper?
No. But the art can be "transferred" to canvas, which not only is uniquely beautiful but enables you to skip the matting and the glass when you are framing. The original piece of art on paper will be sent to you along with the canvas copy.

Can I choose the colors I want you to work with?
No. Part of the unusual technique given to Janet by the Higher Selves is that all colors are chosen with the eyes closed.

How long will it take for you to complete a commissioned piece?
Commissioned art can take anywhere from one to two weeks to complete. If you must have it by a specific date please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to determine if that date is possible.

What can I expect from my Catalytic Art?
Catalytic Art is a slow moving but constant energy. The energy that is consciously infused along with the colors and patterns that are unconsciously applied (in order to create the art at the highest level possible) work together to reshape the pattern each picture is addressing. The energy works to shift, reshape and/or create a whole new pattern in the Highest Ideal for the person who is using it.  

However, it is important not to assume that the picture will reshape the pattern in some predetermined way that you want. Since the energy works at the Divine Level, it is working at a frequency level we may not be able to understand ahead of time. Yet, in time, it will show itself to be helping even if not how you expected.

For example, if you want to improve your relationship with your boss, you may find that in fact you lose your current job only to get a new job with a terrific boss. If you want to get a picture to end loneliness, you may find that it helps you find joy in being alone rather than bringing in someone else to keep you company. Keeping an open mind helps keep the energy flowing strongly. Holding firm to how you want the change to be may slow or block the most positive results. The energy works to open doors, to bring in new insights, and to help with solutions and resolutions.  

Also, a piece of Catalytic art will continue to work for your entire lifetime. I did a picture for someone 25 years ago to help her find the exact right apartment she wanted; in fact it helped her find her next 2 apartments as well as the perfect house she moved into 12 years later. The energy is never used up. It continues to bring the life pattern into higher and higher frequency levels for as long as you wish to use it.

Higher Self Voice "Original Recordings" CDs

I've seen these CDs on your web store. Can you tell me what they are?
These are original recordings from Joan Culpepper's Wednesday Group which ran throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Joan was the woman who originally brought in the Higher Self information, and it was during these sessions that Janet Richmond learned about the the Higher Selves and later learned to develop her own link to the Higher Self frequency. Janet has studied, utilized and refined the information and techniques for more than two decades. After successfully incorporating it into her own life she began the arduous task of compiling, analyzing and organizing the massive amounts of information that Joan originally brought in and that Janet herself later brought in.

The information in Janet Richmond's books, workshops, classes and sessions is the culmination of many year's work in which she attempted to refine and present the information and processes in the most productive and usable format. It is however a very powerful experience to here these CDs in which Joan Culpepper reflected the very raw and potent Higher Self information for the first time. Those who hear these recordings come away feeling as if they've actually heard the Higher Selves speaking.

Janet chose only 10 of these original recordings to be digitally re-mastered and sold to the public. They can only be purchased through this website and are not available anywhere else. Follow this link to learn more about these amazing recordings. Follow this link to purchase your own copies from our store.
