Meet Janet-Lee Ropas
GUIDING WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
Hi & Welcome to my home! Well, really my virtual heart temple, because home is where the heart is, and I poured my heart into this magical space in excited anticipation of your visit! So please relax, take a long delicious breath, and inhale all the wisdom & wonder I have to share with you!
But first let me introduce myself, I am Janet-Lee Ropas, a Spiritual Coach, Guide, & Teacher, Priestess of Sacred Union, Writer, & ignitedHEART Dance teacher, guiding women to reclaim & embrace all parts of themselves…unapologetically. I am on a mission to ignite hearts to live & love with wild abandon, because joy & pleasure are our birthrights and we are SO worthy of our desires. Although I didn’t start out this way...you see...I am also a corporate America escapee…
I made a proclamation when I was 17 that I would never sit behind a desk all day in a 9-5 job because that was not meant for me, I’d go crazy. I was wiser than I realized, because I did go a little mad after my life took a hard right turn into Corporate America and instead of 9-5 it was 8-6ish, working on a trading floor, in one of the most intense environments of Wall Street. It is not what I set out to do, but it is where life brought me for 11 years. I am grateful for the experience as it has made me stronger, allowed me to gain wisdom I needed to help serve others on a deeper level, and it afforded me an awesome life in the heart of New York City for 6 years. As well as provided the funds to quench my nomadic heart’s desire to see all of the world.
If your heart isn’t in it, all those lifestyle perks only get you so far, before you begin to downward spiral. Everyone’s spiral looks different. Mine looked like numbing out through emotional eating, binge drinking on the weekends, shopping in excess, and a jam-packed schedule, because if I actually slowed down I would have to hear my heart screaming - “YOU ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE - GET OUT! NOW.” And making huge life changes can be scary so I didn’t really want to hear. Eventually because our hearts are persistent and love always wins, I heard the scream, and then I heard my soul whisper, “If you do not leave now, you are going to die.” Meaning, my spirit was dimming and it was time to get out & shine. I replied to the Divine that day saying, “Yes. I don’t know how, but yes, I will leap.” All the universe needed to hear was my yes and then magic was activated.
I leapt from Wall Street into Global Travels. I backpacked around the world, on & off, for 2 years, using NY as a home base. Most of my travels I was alone and was in awe of how many people told me how brave I was. I would kind of look over my shoulder to see who they were talking to because I was just doing what I needed to stay alive. In time I saw what they did - it was audacious to walk away from financial stability, home, and spend that much time alone. It was one of the greatest gifts I ever gave myself - freedom to just be, to wander, to connect with people & cultures all over the world. Most importantly I found me, my truth, my passions, my heart, I learned to love myself unconditionally. Through loving myself I also reconnected with the Divine and my burning desires to help empower women and create a more loving and peaceful home here on Earth. It took me on a several year spiritual journey of deep diving into my heart & soul, to heal, release blocks, stories, trauma, and bust through resistance to step fully into my heart - to reclaim all of me.

I escaped corporate America to live a life filled with freedom, love, grace, passion, and adventure. As you can see from the above I was able to do just that, when we create space and make ourselves a priority, the world begins to open up in new and exciting ways. But first you have to tell the universe, “YES!”
Then there is a journey of moving through fear & resistance (which is why I’m here to coach you - I’ve done it, I know how to get to the other side of fear). This can be challenging but life is challenging anyway, so you might as well move through the challenges with an ignited heart and create your dream life too!
I am here now shining my light and sharing my story because I believe in you and your power to rise up to live the life you desire, to live passionately & unapologetically. I believe unconditionally loving romantic partnerships are possible (I know, I co-created one), that we are powerful beyond measure, prayer is our super power, and the combination of chocolate & peanut butter is heaven on earth.
Thank you for visiting my hearts online temple of love. I hope you really do stay awhile and make yourself at home while enjoying the adventures of life, love, and spirit I have to share. May you find the inspiration and courage to take the next step to the beat of your heart whispers and also a few laughs and shortcuts from all that I have learned. Most of all, whether you are just passing through or here to settle for a spell, I want you to know I see you and you are magnificent just the way you are. You are enough and anything is possible. Please hug fear tight and leap into your dreams, for this wild earthly journey will be over in a blink. Be here now, we need your unique light and unapologetically ignited hearts.
I LEAVE YOU WITH MY GREATEST ADVENTURE OF ALL:
After backpacking, dancing with fear again, heart leading through resistance, I moved from NYC to San Francisco, CA - where my heart had been calling me for 10 years. Deep down I knew my partner was here. If we ignore our heart, we block our dreams. Ignite your heart and your reality becomes your dream. Meeting and falling in love with my sacred soul partner has made every leap before it worth it. If I didn’t fall in love with me first, there is no way I would be able to invite a partner into my life, as unconditionally loving, gentle, inspiring, and grounded in his power, as my love. Being in a sacred partnership is truly the greatest adventure of all (although I’ll never stop traveling ;). Surrender to your heart, it knows the way to your dreams.
Thank you for being you and visiting my virtual home.
It’s a pleasure to connect through the web and I hope I get to hear your story soon live!
