#150 How Are You Choosing to Live Your Life?

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have some guidance for us all today?

In the end, is life but a task that must be completed in order for graduation to the next phase. How are you choosing to live your life? That is the question you must ask yourself. Are you living with full awareness that you are under strict guidelines that must be adhered to in order to reach heaven? Or, are you aware that there are only guidelines that must be followed synchronistically, and as you learn? There are many schools of thought on how to live life. How are you choosing? And what purpose do you have in making the choice you make? Do you desire something that is ego bound and fairly impossible to maintain as life presents you with much that needs attending to along the way? Or do you go with the flow, knowing, yet not certain, that life needs to be lived as it is presented?

Live your life to the fullest completion. Consider yourself as the final life in your soul’s journey, and seek the means of wholeness, now, so that your own mission may now be revealed. All have a greater mission, beyond that earthly domain, a mission in infinity, as I have now with you. There are many missions and many groups attending to that which needs correcting. Find your true purpose in that life, seek completion, and in so doing will your future life be mapped out and ready for your enjoyment. Life is truly fascinating isn’t it? Watch the energy so you don’t get caught. Stay focused on your path and your growth. For that is enough, but always question, or you will not pass your tests!

#149 Mix Your Spices

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a word of guidance for today?

What has transpired since yesterday? Do you contemplate my words, or do you doubt both me and the road you are being shown? I hold no attachments to the ways of earth, neither desire nor self-importance, yet do I urge all to advance and become aware that much is offered that you cannot touch, or see, or hear. Where is your sense of adventure, and your sense of wanting a meaningful life? If I tell you about my own life, do I do you a disservice? Or do you take it in as meaningful information, as it is meant to be, to guide you on your journey? I offer insight and knowledge, yet do I know that many continue to doubt, preferring the reality of the world around them, the physical, visible, tangible world. Yet is there another world right next to you, available if you only turn and point your compass, with open innocence and true desire for spirit connection.

This other world is the one I speak of, and offer secrets of. This other world that is so near, yet so far, do I encourage you to seek over all other worlds, even as you must solidly live in that world, your own reality. Seek a blending now, a balancing of your reality and the insights I offer. Mix your spices, a little salt with the pepper, and blend together your wondrous yearnings with your cold reality. Warm it all up and find a delicious combination of superb flavors that will aid you on your journey.

Why not live a little differently now? Put your fears aside and go for embracing some new ideas of your world, combined with what I offer. Mix a stew, an aromatic dish of pleasing tastes of both worlds, perfectly seasoned, and heated to perfection. You won’t be disappointed. Life is meant to be tasted and experienced on all levels. What are you waiting for? Bring your spoon to the table, dip it into the pot of delicious stew, and explore the new tastes upon your tongue. You won’t be disappointed, either in your own experiences, or in what I offer to guide you along. Sometimes, you just need to know where to look, and where to step next, and which pot of stew is the most tasty. Well, that’s all I offer, a little direction, a little insight, and a mighty tasty stew if you decide to put your spoon into it.

Do not let a day of doubt overshadow your enjoyment of all that life offers. Do not become bogged down in details that you consider too far-fetched. Everyone has lived and lived again, that should not be in question. But what do you do with such knowledge? Have you learned your lives’ lessons, or do you continually repeat the same mistakes? I offer a spicy blend of new ideas and opportunities to move now, to kick start your evolutionary journey anew, with a new blend of tantalizing ideas and good energy boosters. Enjoy the challenge. Don’t be afraid, it’s all good. You’ll see!

#148 One True Strand of Truth

Dear Jeanne,
We have a follow up question today regarding your previous message about resolving your abandonment issue. What was your previous life’s issue that you had an abandonment issue to deal with in your life as Jeanne Marie Ketchel? Who were you in the life before that, and why did you have to come back, to reincarnate, with the issue of abandonment to resolve? It might be helpful for us to understand how past lives affect us, and how resolution of our deepest issues is such an important factor in our present life. Can you comment on this?

First, be aware that resolution of that life is most important, before all other lives can be resolved. By this I mean, living in the present, with full awareness of the issues of that life now that affect how you function, and how you relate. Recapitulation, as I have spoken of many times, is a necessary practice in order to live a life of awareness. Discover your present life, who you are, why you do what you do, and seek the utter and blatant truths of the self now before you attempt any past life recall. That is the first step in resolution of life’s issues. Once you are truly aware of the present self, then can you be ready to tackle the issues of evolution.

My own issue of abandonment was related not only to my present life, but to several past lives as well. I was not fully cognizant of this until much later, but it became my greatest challenge when I realized that it was more deeply embedded in the complicated nature of who I was, not only as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, but as the conglomerate of lives that make up my personal lifetimes, my soul group. I lived many lives with that issue, seeking resolution in many fashions.

Previous to entering life as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, did I live a life of prostitution on the streets of Italy, less concerned with evolutionary growth, at the time, than I was in mere survival, but that was not to be resolved satisfactorily, as I died a violent death, unable to contain my own needs, and unavailable for any others. I left behind five children, abandoned them, not in death, but even before that, as I struggled to feed them, and to maintain a life that was one of great struggle. In spite of that tremendous struggle, did I also find time to question my existence, and to resolve, that in the future, would I return to care for those children, as soon as possible. But in that lifetime, was there a great war, and great devastation of the town of Palermo, where I resided. I was lost in a great battle, buried under rubble, and my children lost their way from there, resorting to whatever life offered.

So, I turned my back on them, not only in dying, but in my inability to function as a mother, a mother who could not fashion herself into what was needed, to protect and allow her children to grow to adulthood with conscious caring and guidance. My life, then, was covered in webs of debauchery, as it was often called, and I was ostracized and lived a life on the outskirts of society. In my own defense, did I turn my back and elect that life in defiance of the rituals, and the conventions of the day. But, it left me with much to debate and deal with, even as I chose to live as physically free as possible.

In an earlier life, I had been called a practitioner of witchcraft, and carried always within me the ability to go against the grain of society and propriety, in order to do what I knew I needed to do to survive, but also to live properly the life I was given.

All lives are connected with one true strand of truth, and that knowledge lies deeply embedded inside all of you. My own truth, my own life strand was related to my firm desire, at all costs, to do what was right. It is the thread that has sewn my lives together, and the thread that continues to guide me to always seek truth, with boldness, and with honesty. I rarely, in any of my lives, worried about myself. I lived each life fully, questing and questioning, a firm believer in the necessity of everything in a life as being meaningful and important. But, I did not allow even the most dire of circumstances to get in the way of truth.

In my life in Palermo, did I snub the rituals of false society because they did not suit that strong thread that connected me to my inner truth, the truth of my soul, my lives woven together, with all-knowing ready to reveal itself. It was not until I returned as Jeanne Marie Ketchel that I understood, most fully, the necessity of recapitulation in present existence. It became very clear to me that I had issues of that life that would interfere in my evolutionary process if I did not resolve them.

Cancer became my ticket to recapitulation and, ultimately, evolutionary growth. It pushed me to experience a life to the fullest, in spite of the time factor, and in spite of the energy factor. As my Chuck will remind you, I had only enough energy to do certain things. My ability to sleep was, above all, one of my greatest, falling easily into drowsy, regenerating slumber. It was necessary, all that sleeping, because it was the only way to recharge. The energy I did have went totally to battling cancer in the end, but not in the way you might think. I used the energy to seek evolutionary healing, not only by seeking out ancient methods, close to my own knowing of herbal and homeopathic remedies, grown from the earth that provides everything for life to be sustainable, but also the ultimate process of healing through recapitulation of my previous life.

When I resolved the issue with the woman who had been my birth mother, did I resolve many issues and many lives, hers and mine. And though I once again died and left children behind in my life as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, did I not abandon them to the fates of dire circumstances, and a motherless existence. I left them fully cognizant of the importance of living life fully, with knowledge of evolution, and the magic in life, as being available and ready, for the asking. The irony of that life completed is that I did not, in the end, abandon anyone. In my completion of earth lives, as I completed the life of Jeanne Marie Ketchel, did I evolve into total life, the completion of my soul group, my thread of lives finally, neatly sewn together, and now am I totally available, in wholeness, to be of guidance to others. This my own children know, of my availability, though they struggle with their own present lives, as all must do.

Resolution of present self first, then resolution of past lives in order to fully evolve and grow into completion. I cannot stress this enough to those of you seeking self-awareness. First, must you be totally present, and aware, and unafraid to live that life fully. Only then are you prepared, truthfully, to understand any previous existence. There must be complete and open acknowledgement of the truths of the self now, acceptable in all forms, resolved, all issues of regret, of deceit, of propriety, of trust, of reason for living just that life, before any other life will be clearly viewed and understood. You are all given enough time to do this. Even up to the last second of life upon that earth are you given the opportunity to accept, totally, the truth of the self, to receive the truth of the self, accept it fully, and move on. It does not require anyone else, except you. Your total acceptance of you, as you are, as you have lived, and as you choose to continue to live are necessary, by you. Once you clearly accept, with total understanding, then are you prepared to proceed. Total understanding is absolutely necessary.

I do not suggest that a blanket statement of acceptance will resolve anything. You must recapitulate constantly in order to fully understand who you are, accepting the deepest truths, and understanding your life as a journey that has an end, the end being moving on to the next step, which is evolutionary growth. That, my friends, is where that thread of lives is leading, stitching together all of your lives, all of your experiences, neatly tying up the bundle that is your evolutionary journey, so that you can take all those truths and use them to continue growing into wholeness, and guide others to do the same. That is true evolution.

Do not get stuck in that world. Focus on where that world is seeking to lead you. What is your own strong thread? Where is your strength, your core strength? Understand that, even as, beside that strength, you seek to resolve your core issue of resolution in that lifetime. What is that issue? Weave those strands together; use them together to discover who you are, why you are there, and where you are going. I did it, and if I could finally do it, then believe me, anyone can do it, if they put their attention there, deciding that evolution of the spirit self is all that matters. And you don’t need cancer, or anything else devastating, to help you focus on that. You can just decide that life is only about spirit evolution, and when viewed from that perspective, as a whole picture, will you have access to your present self and, eventually, your past selves. All will be revealed if you are focused, aware, seeking clarity, and resolved to do the work of recapitulation. Now, that is a lot to contemplate for today! Good enough for now. I leave you with a lot to ponder, but please do so with your focus always forward, even as you go into your past, keep your feet moving forward. Good luck!

A Commentary from Chuck on Message #147

Jeanne warns constantly to not get attached to distracting outside energy pulls, which seek to steal our energy in an unaware state. The flip side of this dynamic, however, is the scrutiny of this synchronistic entrapment. Why am I vulnerable? Why is this happening now? Vulnerability is an inroad into my core. What is it that I need to recapitulate? Viewed from this angle, outside energy, which seeks to entrap, is also a guide, steering our focus to our inner truths and challenges. If we forego the attachment, and go inward, we move further along in our evolutionary growth. From this angle, we can appreciate all energy that impacts us as helpful guidance. But, beware of attachment.

#147 Outside Energy is Not Your Energy Source

Dear Jeanne,
What message do you have for us regarding the energy of today?

Find your equilibrium, your inner balance, and your outer balance, as you continue to hone your skills and pare down your external energy usage. Turn constantly inward as you renegotiate your stance upon that earth and rediscover your life’s meaning now, from this new place you inhabit. With new skills, new ideas to contemplate, and new insights regarding life’s journey are you now well prepared to continually progress on your evolutionary journey with greater focus.

Do not stop your forward motion in the direction of eternal growth. Do not allow that which is around you to distract you from this path. Even as you must be a member of that world, that planet, and that life you now lead, so must your focus remain inner contemplation, and eternal growth, for real progress to be made. Allow yourself this time now, this day, this hour, this minute to resort to calm, reasserting your balance as often as possible as you go about your day. Your inner state will determine your outer state. And this is how it should be, rather than the other way around. Do not allow the outer world to invade the privacy of your inner calm. Your inner sanctum must be your central place of balance, your core, from which you generate your energy. If you allow the outside energy to dictate your own energy usage and consumption then do you go off balance, overconsume, overuse, and generally make a mess of things. The outside energy is not your energy source. It is available as guide and as aid, but it is not your energy center. That center resides solely inside you. Do not look outside of you to gain new energy. Look only inside. And if you do not find what you need there? Then slow down your life and look deeply at why. The answers are all inside you. You do not have to go outward for answers.

The only thing you must now use the outside energy for is guidance. It will enable you to do the work of the self if you are aware that it is not meant for consumption, but only for external usage. Use it to aid you in the flow of life, the flow of your inner work, but do not allow it to become your flow. Allow it to carry you upon its back when you are certain that it heads in the right direction for you to take. And if it turns out that you made a mistake, then, by all means, bail out before you find yourself on a distant shore, too far from your calm center, and your own inner work, to easily return.

Return always to your calmness, your inner work, and when in doubt about how to proceed on your journey turn inward, and question, rather than outward. Inward reveals the answers; outward steals your attention away from the truth and carries you from your true mission in life.

Today, awareness of the self in all of that mess of energetic pull is mandatory, for with the great tangled web of energy seeking to catch you unaware and unalert are you ready prey. But your inner focus and inner questioning are your handiest tools. What does this signify for my life’s journey? Why am I being presented with this dilemma today? What does this attempt to steal my energy, in just this way, mean to me now?

Remain steadily balanced in the present moment, aware that your journey is one of constant growth and readjustment, and remain in calmness, no matter what approaches you, so that your focus on your inner truths will always be your guide.
