#61 Keep a Warm Blaze Going

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for humanity today?

Do not get caught now by talk of energy that is not resonant with your own truth and your own inner knowing. I do not advocate getting swept up into something that will only drain you and potentially leave you depleted.

I warn that there is much out there in the world that would love to feast off your growing and vibrant energy. But at this time, and in this state of growth that you now embark on, is it most important that you maintain your energy for work on yourself. Though this may sound selfish, how can it be, when your true goal is in learning to understand how your own energy works in order to utilize it meaningfully in the manner that your life was truly meant for?

This is now a learning process that you have embarked on, and I advise that you stay focused on inner personal growth at this time. Feed your own energy being first, tend to it carefully, keep it calmly balanced and energetically self-focused. Then, if you truly have energy to spare, is it perfectly feasible to practice using it in a more universal fashion. But, you must be able to acknowledge your own limitations, set some rules so that you do not deplete, or empty too far, your own energy reserves. It is important to keep always the embers of your energy glowing, though it is far better to have quite a nice fire going at all times. If your inner fire goes cold because you have not attended to it properly will you have much work getting it started again.

Maintain your inner energy as you would tend a fire, feeding it just enough to keep a warm blaze going and you will do well stabilizing your energy. Look outside of you and decide where your energy is best utilized. There will be much wishing to draw upon you, especially as your resonance is felt more and more now. There will be a time of attraction and a time of interest in your new energetic resonance, but it also a time to sit back and observe and contemplate as well as revel in this feeling of your own energy. Do not give it all away. This is probably the best message I can give to you today. Do not give it all away. Feed continually the fire of your own energy. Keep it growing, and as you select how you will utilize it, keep always in mind that you must maintain more than enough for yourself. For what good will you be to anyone else who truly needs you, or the energetic flow of universal intent, if you do not maintain enough energy to remain functioning at a good energy level yourself. Do not run out of fuel.

So, focus on the self in this manner is important. Watch what comes at you now to draw on your new energy awareness. You may find that, as you are more aware of your energy now, as a separate aspect of your self, so will there be feasters who are also aware of this. Begin to recognize who and what they are, and learn to be protective of your vibrant energy. It will attract the right kind of resonant energy, but it will also attract the wrong kind. You do not want, or wish, to become but a feeding ground, rather than an ever-growing and glowing energy source that you alone control and understand perfectly.

Deflect that which is inappropriate, merely energy-draining attraction. Keep cognizant of how you are using your energy and how you can improve on using it. Yes, your energy resides in your physical body, and your body awareness is your biggest indicator of how you use your energy. Your body will often tell you, enough! But, sometimes your energy body will function completely outside of the physical body and you may not even realize what is happening until it is too late and your energy is gobbled up. So, stay cognizant of both your physical and your separate energy being. Keep them in alignment during your busy working day; replenish them both. Keep them in good condition, remaining aware of how you are choosing to spend your energy, and your physical energy too. Awareness of the self is key to how you will later function as a spirit entity. Awareness of understanding your energy and your spirit being now is extremely important for future growth.

So today, be aware of outside energy seeking to connect and possibly drain you of the energy you are discovering and feeling so intensely within yourself now. Retain it, don’t let it go, it’s far too soon for that. You must remain focused on studying it, how it works, what it is capable of, and how you alone experience it before you should allow it to be utilized by others. Be protective of it. After all, it is like a baby growing inside you, and you are just getting to know the feel of it, nurturing it, and growing it, while you understand the greater meaning of it. It is life inside you, your very own life, and your very own infant energy. Be careful with it!

Life upon that earth is going to get very interesting. See what happens. Stay energy focused, caring of the self, and cognizant of your place in the world now as you go innerly and become spirit focused, and a tender of your own energetic fuel, keeping your own fire kindled and glowing. Keep this inner balance going, even as you deal with life and all the issues that arise and, of course, must be met and dealt with. Never shirk your responsibilities in life, but do learn this new balance now too.

#60 Know Your Spirit

Dear Jeanne,
You’ve been focusing on helping us understand how to make correct decisions, challenging us to remain spirit-guided. What guidance do you have for us now?

Recognizing your own true spirit comes easily as you relinquish your hold on old ideas, old teachings, and old habits. In order to connect with your spirit consciousness must you first strip the self of all outwardly imposed ideas of spirit. Spirit exists inside you; it is unique and as individual as you are. No one else can hold or contain it, no one else can, or deserves, to guide it properly, except you. Do not give your spirit to anyone to hold, or to nurture, or to feed, for how could another truly know you and your spirit? Yes, guidance is available, and in many ways, but at all times are you responsible, for your spirit knowing what is resonant and what is not. Even in, and especially in, this interaction with me. Beware of cults, and religions seeking your energy for self-gratification or for the possibility of holding you to tenets that require you to give your spirit, and your ability to deeply know and explore your own spirit, to another.

Spirit consciousness must always stay individually oriented and focused. You are allowed to have strong inner spirit. You are allowed to trust your own inner spirit above all else, for this is the only thing that will lead you to truth, to truth of the self, truth of pure spirit, and, eventually, connection with the ultimate capability of your own spirit as it merges with all spirit energy. This we all seek to achieve, it is the ultimate goal of growth in infinity, to continually be guided by spirit and seeking connection with true and pure spirit energy.

Do you mean God?

Many call it God. Man on earth calls it God, but infinite energy is the culmination of all pure energy that is good, and resonant, and seeking continued cleansing and purifying, carrying with it knowledge of how to achieve this in a process of learning, much as you are now undergoing. It requires trusting of the spirit in each of us, testing and proving that we are on the right path, knowing intuitively that we must do what we are doing because it is the right thing to do, the perfect path for our spirit energy to take.

I do not wish to scare or take away from anyone their beliefs or their comforts regarding their spiritual path. All paths are valid if your spirit truly resonates and hums in the recognition of knowing that such a path is truly correct. But, I do urge all to seek always their individual, and often deeply hidden, inner spirit in order to truly feel and know resonance.

This resonance may respond to the world outside of you in many different ways. It may seek further inner life, growing exponentially in a richly rewarding manner that only you will have access to and enjoy. That is perfectly fine and dandy, for it is for you alone to learn about and to evolve with. Some spirits may feel resonance outwardly, desiring change in the world, seeking outwardly to assign energy to causes or tasks that resonate with that individual spirit type. Many will have a combination of both, of true inner awareness that resonates outward, in a balance that aids both the inner resonance and the outer resonant cause. All of these examples and aspects of spirit resonance are equally valid and meaningful.

But, I urge all who are as yet uncertain of resonance outwardly to stay innerly focused for the time being, quietly and calmly centering on the inner spirit, learning about it, seeking to fully know it and find it in its fullness. This is not a selfish act, but a truly selfless act, for in the long run will your discovery of your inner spirit more fully allow your wholeness to merge and your outer self to grow from this experience. The merging of your inner and outer self is the first goal. Then, as you experience this merging and understand it can you allow a role reversal to take place. When this happens your spirit self will become as your outer self and now become your guide, your exposed self, and extremely capable of recognizing resonance.

At this point will you begin to understand what I mean when I speak of energy, of spirit energy. As you feel your own grow, will you find that the idea of true pure energy is not so far-fetched, and your idea of God may switch from being man-focused to being pure energy-focused. This is what all spirits seek, you know, to be connected to that purity. But, as the word infinity implies, is it infinite, and the possibility for continued growth and purity always exists. Our spirit energy is ever existing, always has, always will. We have all had many adventures in our pasts, and many in our futures, all based on our energetic beingness.

But, perhaps I stray too far from where we left off the last time we connected. I present these ideas so that you will have a broader picture of what energy is, and also so that you will understand that you, each person, each individual, is responsible for nurturing your own spirit by getting to know it firstly, and then by allowing it to guide you with its resonance, becoming as the beacon of light I have mentioned before, a light searching and searching for true resonance and then shining its beam where it finds it. In that beam of light will there be clarity and the ability to see and feel a reciprocal resonance that hums the same tune as your own. And here will you find growth and the possibility for change to spirit orientation.

You know already when your spirit is comfortable simply by how you feel in the wrong company and how you feel in the right company. You know the feeling of rightness of resonance. Think about your life for a moment, span its past and note where your spirit has truly felt resonance. What moments stick out the most? Why were these significant, even if they were only brief? Even brief glimpses of resonance teach us something, and longer ones may show us a process of growth that we may not have acknowledged before.

Do you energetically flow in spirit orientation in certain situations, and in others do you feel friction in your spirit center? Where do you wish to be, in resonance or friction? These are the signs that are pointing you properly and allowing you glimpses into understanding how your resonance works. You will feel resonance. Your entire spirit and your physical body will both feel it. This is how you know you are in the right place, when your inner and your outer selves are in harmony, feeling true resonance with that decision, that person, that place, that institution that you are wondering about.

So, your decisions must resonate. As you feel resonance must you most likely also feel an emotional response, perhaps calm certainty, perhaps excitement, full of knowing that yes, this is so right. Be aware of small disagreements with your spirit that are warning you that total resonance does not exist. If you hear a warning, pay attention! Even the tiniest warning should not be ignored. However, that is your choice. Many warnings have been disregarded and journeys taken, that in the long run have been necessary. I’m sure all of you have such experience as this.

Remember always that your greatest asset and your greatest tool is your free choice. Never relinquish this to another. Never become bound by doctrine or laws that take away your freedom of choice and free will. Even in the most dire of circumstances is there a choice, do not ever think you do not have this option. Your spirit would never desert you, but you might desert your spirit. Remain always cognizant of this spirit option and listen to its guidance at all times, no matter what condition you have gotten yourself into or life has stranded you in. Your spirit will survive and you will too, for your spirit is eternal.

I feel I am touching on too many topics today, but it is important for you to fully understand what spirit energy is, how it functions, and how it requires your individual participation in the process of evolution. For how can your personal energy, your own spirit become active if you do not pay attention to it, learn to recognize it and nurture it? Nurture your spirit energy, understand how it speaks to you, and do not disregard its truths as they come to you, and you will do well on this journey you are now on.

I hope this is helpful in the next stage of your life. May you find what you need, may your awareness continually guide you, and your resonance lead you properly along your true path. You are all doing well, my fine friends. Au revoir!

#59 The Reality of Your Challenge

Dear Jeanne,
We are all certainly feeling both the energy you speak of and the challenges that this energy presents. It feels like we have many decisions to make, whether intensely personal, or coming from outside us. What guidance can you offer us today as we struggle to find our way and gain clarity?

As always, I stress beginning your day in harmony, in your calm and centered balance. From this place of humming inner harmony, in tune with your own intent, will you have a stable and certain ground from which to allow your day to spring. From this calm stability will your awareness be more readily present and available. If calmness cannot be maintained, then I advise that you work on that aspect of the self, until you have mastered it, for it is to be utilized constantly as you go about your day. Remind yourself often to go into your calm, go into your balance, and react to your world only from this center.

That is your first challenge if you are to interact properly with the vibrant energy that now flows upon that earth. Once this calm inner balance is stable and maintainable, then will you be ready to tackle your other issues and challenges. But, the ability to continually focus inward, and remove the tension from your physical and mental being through inner calm, will allow you to more clearly see and resolve those outside challenges that present themselves to you.

Learn to use the energy that is now available to you from this place of calm. Your challenges will become seen as just the next step on your journey and, as I spoke of the other day, take them as challenges to yourself to also test and utilize the new abilities and techniques you have been learning under my guidance. I have been offering you many practical and useful techniques that you can utilize in your daily reality. Now, as your challenges present themselves, are you being urged to begin practicing them.

The first step is always center in your calmness, before you do anything else. Then, look around you from this removed place in your center, and check out the reality of your challenge. Why are you being challenged in this manner? What is the challenge trying to tell you? What are you supposed to learn from it, personally, as relates to your own journey? Is this challenge really as big as you imagine? Is your decision going to be based on the intent of your spirit? Or is your ego getting in the way, making the decision for you, and clouding your perceptions? Are you looking at a challenge that does not truly exist? Can you make it disappear simply by taking your attention off it? Have you placed that challenge there?

Many challenges are created by our egos, believing that we need something, attending to the wants of itself. Often these kinds of challenges do not need to exist, though they steal much of our energy, and we may attach to them for long periods of time, distracted from our real focus and our calm spirit intent. Most often our challenges are of this sort, placed there by old habits, by the ego desiring something that we are not truly aligned with, or by the frightened child inside that desires attention be paid to its inability to mature.

Study your challenges from your deep spirit center. Evaluate them from this inner reality and discover what they truly are, and from where they are generated. Are they important enough to spend your energy on? Are they growth-oriented challenges, or are they merely distractions? Challenge yourself to be truthful, and then take the path of spirit in order to meet your challenges, or simply dismiss them, and give your spirit back the energy you had placed on unnecessary challenges.

I have always advocated simplicity in life so that your energy may be focused on spirit intent. Simplicity will reduce complications in your life, and in return will it also reduce the challenges that are produced by overdoing and externalizing your energy. Focus on your true meaning for living. If you are spirit first and foremost, what then is your focus going to be in your life? Is it truly necessary to grow beyond what your spirit knows is perfectly reasonable and right for you to do? Are you considering expanding the possibilities in your life, offering you many new opportunities? Are you challenging yourself to take on additional concerns that, in reality, will only burden you and take away from your spirit focus?

Simplify, simplify, simplify your life and be granted the energy to remain in spirit focus and available for your own center throughout your day. When the ego quiets down, when the needy baby goes to sleep, what then do you hear, what then do you know? Your truth, your spirit, directing you to remain calm and focused on your own spirit energy, so that your life may be guided from this place of calm, rather than from the outside self in daily battle with challenges better left untouched and unengaged.

Many things to think about have been created as distraction, but how can you decipher what is a real challenge, and what is a challenge created by the distracters in your life, whether from inside the self or outside the self? Well, the answer lies within the spirit center, and as you go into your calm and your balance, and remain there in quiet, may you be granted the insight you need and desire in order to truly see and know where your true direction lies.

My greatest advice is, always, to simplify life rather than complicate it more than necessary. Keep your decisions based on spirit and you will do well. Is this good for my spirit time, my spirit energy, my spirit calm? If I elect to make this decision, will I still have time for my spirit, and will I be able to find the time for those important moments of calm with my inner self?

If your desire is to have a spirit-centered life, then must you keep this in mind as you challenge yourself. If your challenges are coming from the universe, from infinity, rather than the ego world, them must you also look at them clearly from your spirit center, and understand that life is leading you in a new direction. But, know that you have many tools now to utilize, and aid you, as you go forward, tackling your issues, and meeting your true challenges, now from your inner center.

Infinity guides you always, sometimes with great challenges, sometimes with subtle hints. Your awareness is keener now, and you are able to notice the signs in your life, and you are ready to go forward in spirit calm now. Trust your abilities, trust your knowing that everything is possible, and trust yourself as your own true guide. These things you know, for you have come far with me on this journey of the inner spirit, and you have found new direction, and new focus, as a result of learning to trust, not only my guidance, but your own inner knowing. So, do not be frightened by challenges. You know what to do.

#58 Act Upon the Revelations that Life Offers

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for us today?

Arrangements made now will be long lasting. Connections of resonance will provide long-term companionship and be of long duration. Relationships begun, as a result of obvious honest trusting and knowing, will be far reaching and have great potential. All of these issues are possible if personal spirit resonance is paid heed to, and choices made remain in the proper energetic flow. To be honest, I can only predict based on the energy, but what you decide to do with it is up to you.

Our time on earth is relatively short in the grander scheme of life as ever being. But the choices we make while there have great potential to either impede or speed our growth. If taking evolutionary steps, then one’s own choices should reflect such growth, growth of spirit, and the desire to know and understand life on a greater scale. However, if one becomes bogged down in life as being earth bound, then is one set up to repeatedly relive it until the spirit awareness kicks in. This can be for many lifetimes. Or there is the ability, always available, that an awakening may occur at any moment, but as always, it is up to each of you to act upon the revelations that life offers you for growth and spirit evolution.

How does one know, for sure, when the path that appears is the proper path to take? How does one make the choice? Resonance, of course! This we have spent much time on over the past few months. You have been learning to recognize your own spirit, your own energy, and feeling where it resonates and finds a home. Even if one finds a home, a resonate path, and a perfect match of spirit, is there still the process of taking action, and this then is the challenge. To test, to step, to back away, and observe, and take your time is expected, and often will yield the proper perspective when decisions are to be made. But ultimately, the greatest challenge is whether or not you are prepared and willing to follow your spirit.

To take the path of spirit is perhaps more challenging than any other you have ever had to take. Yet, if you follow it, will you discover purity of purpose, and deep answering resonance as you make your way along this path. My advice is always to go slowly, steadily, in your balance. Know what you are electing to do, and go forward in your life fully aware that you are following your spirit and your spirit alone, and trusting your life to your spirit’s guidance. This is a major step to take. But, it is also the only step to take if you seek now the next step in evolutionary growth.

I elected to remain no longer earth bound, but instead to become cognizant of spirit, of my own, and of others. This allowed me the opportunity to complete unfinished business without the burden of returning to life on earth yet again. I have completed my tasks there, no longer am required to return in the form of human body, spirit entrapped and struggling for recognition and desiring of acknowledgement. Now, I reside in a state of energetic spirit being.

The guidance I offer today is that I request all of you to, slowly and methodically, begin to test your knowing, your sense of spirit, directing your energy where you feel your resonance most strongly. The only way to know if what you feel is correct is to test it, as a scientist does, looking for proof and expecting results. Be keenly aware, alert to signs in your life that will be directing you, answering you, and leading you forward on the proper path. Perhaps this will become easier as you receive and accept something in your life that you previously had dismissed. Is there not something staring you in the face that you have failed to acknowledge? Are you stubbornly refusing to hear, or to understand something? Or have you just been afraid?

Everyone is afraid. That is only human. But also, within the frightened human is there a greater strength, a positive, engaging, and daring knowledge that is just waiting to be allowed expression. Learn to accept this fact, this spirit inside, and begin to allow it to speak up now and offer guidance. What is it saying to you? In your place of calm, in your steady balance, in your quiet will you be able to hear it clearly. Then, all you have to do is follow its guidance. Not really hard, because you will know it is correct for you to do so, but very hard because you will also know that it is going to take you on a very different journey than you have thus far engaged in. As you take that new journey will you begin to see how others on that same journey will begin popping up and letting you know you are not alone, and in feeling resonance in your new environment will you understand, more fully, what this journey of spirit energy is all about.

Allow yourself to accept the gifts you are given, the gifts of spirit, of guidance, and of your own knowing, and you will do well. Find your resonance, your spirit, and you will also do well.

#57 Seek the Secret Spirit Self

Dear Jeanne,
We have seen and felt the power of the energy you have been speaking of. Many people are daring to go with the flow of it, stepping in to their resonance, excited, but also nervous about their bold moves. We are all trusting your guidance. Will you help us all who read your messages to grow a little further today? And trust our next steps?

Yes, I can. Remain always centered, in your place of calm, no matter where you seek to tread. Your path will remain perfect for you, as long as you stay in your calm, and respect your answering resonant energy, calling to you and offering you its mirror in order to remain focused on your journey. I advise, that you continue to question each step you take, and not only question in your head, but also feel the answer in your body, and your spirit as you pose the question.

Am I where I should be? Is this the right move for me to make? Do I feel totally relaxed and certain that I am in a state of resonance? Do I feel perfectly calm and relaxed in this situation, with this decision, with this person, or even with myself? Am I being truthful to myself? Am I allowing by inner self to be my guide now? Am I allowing my secret self to come out, and be unafraid, and become the real me? Am I focusing on spirit growth? Am I finding my way now, focused on the proper use of my energy for the good of my spirit and all humanity?

These questions are all good things to offer yourself as you begin to dare, and begin to move into new territory in your life and also in your inner self, your spirit. Your growth in all aspects of life now should remain focused on inner growth, the growth of the true you, perhaps long hidden, kept secret for only you to know. But now is it time for the secret spirit self to become the real self. Guidance from this aspect of the self will lead you properly.

This is what I have been teaching you, you know. To trust your own guidance, to connect to your own spirit being. I am but a helper, as is Jan who is my messenger, bringing you these new insights so that you may connect with your true inner spirit. Your very own spirit guide resides in you, and this you are learning to connect to.

Yes, there are many of us available to help, and this aspect of reality is exceedingly valuable for you to realize. For, as you discover that connection is possible so are you also able to better understand the connection to your own spirit, and have knowledge that all that your spirit knows is fact. Your experience now of guidance, through my words and your own guides, allows you to have access to the knowledge that everything is possible. But, this must not happen simply because I say so. You must allow yourself to test and have experience of such connection in your own life. You must be open to examples of guidance, and have real and tangible experiences that you alone recognize as meaningful and truly resonant with your request for guidance. Everything is possible. Everything is possible. Everything is possible. Keep this mantra always in mind, especially as you doubt, as you are confronted with experiences you can’t explain, or you can’t believe. Know that everything that happens in your life is meant for you to learn and grow from. So, what are you supposed to learn today?

Perhaps you will discover that you actually feel, physically, your own energy resonating, reverberating, and coursing through you in answer to your own desire for clarity in direction. Perhaps your path will suddenly open wide, and you will have feelings of awe and shock, and perhaps, fear, because suddenly, you know what you must do. The old you may sneak in and seek to keep you still and unmoving, while the spirit in you knows you are going to move forward in to that wide open world, knows that you are going to be daring. And in this moment of interaction between the two parts of yourself will you have to call on your helpers, but also your own knowing that you are trusting your journey now, trusting your strength in knowing that every choice you make toward growth is extremely valuable, and that you now seek a more meaningful life. But most of all will you know that you can trust yourself, your inner guide. You cannot go wrong if you stay in your calm and feel that resonant energy directing you properly, like a beam of light trained on the direction that is right. Know that you are fully capable, strong, and ready. Know that you will be fine, that you have opened up to the universe now, and that your way is guided and your time will be well spent as you dare to become spirit first.

Everyone has decisions to make, and everyone has challenges ahead of them. This is how life is supposed to be, leading you always forward. No matter what the challenges that proposed themselves to me, in my own life there upon that earth, I found my way forward because something inside me would not allow me to stay muffled under the heaviness of an unspirited life. Spirit driven, but also spirit guided, was I in that life there. My main guide was my husband, Chuck Ketchel, who many of you know. He not only inspired me, but he pushed me, and got me going in this new life I now have. He knew always the way to go next, oftentimes uncertain himself, but always focused on what was the right next move to make, instinctively seeking what felt right, and what resonated with our very compatible spirits. I now am able to return the favor to him, and to those of you who have found your way to my words. This you must see is how spirit and resonance work. Even the fact, and this is a fact, that you are reading my words, is proof of your own spirit guiding you to this place. Somehow, all of you found your way here, and that is definitely significant. So, trust that aspect of yourself that got you here in the first place to continue to guide you properly.

This growth and this guidance is all about you, about you being able to connect to your own spirit, your own knowing, and developing your own connection to your self, above all, as guide.

Remain focused on your balance at all times. Bring yourself back constantly to your place of calm as you step into the energetic flow that surrounds you. It will not overwhelm you if you remain centered, and whole, and spirit focused. It will not draw you apart, or confuse you, for you are in control of your life differently now. Your control has shifted from the outer you to the inner you, and that is where your center, your balance, and your calm reside, and from where your resonance illuminates, and where your energy speaks. Listen to it and feel it. Take your time, allowing it to guide you and you will do well!

There is much ahead of you, be prepared for swiftness of change. Be prepared for the speed of the energy to move you far in a very short span of time. This will happen because the time is right, and the energy is appropriate for this. Your decisions will be impacted by this energetic force that I have spoken of, now, these many months. So lastly, I offer you this knowledge, that whatever you decide to do in your life now, whatever step you take, prepare yourself for a move of a lifetime as events and growth will escalate, and push you forward with unparalleled force toward a whole new understanding of what is meant by energy. Yes, this is a warning. But, it is also a foresight that you will be happy to have. Oh yes, Jeanne said this would happen. Jeanne said that the energy would carry me far and fast. Yes, I see she was right!

So, I invite you all to enjoy the ride on that energy that you have been feeling and studying and daring to engage. I commend you for your efforts. Now, go engage it. Stay in your calm, seek your resonance at all times, and see what happens. You will be fine, my fine traveling friends. You will all be fine.
