#301 Inside All of You Resides the One Who Knows

Today a question is asked by an anonymous reader.

Dear Jeanne,
Can you speak to us about the conditions in America? Gas and fuel prices are out of control and everything else is affected. Corporate greed, capitalistic greed has taken over, and there is such a negative overtone to the current political scene that everything feels almost hopeless. Our country isn’t doing enough on the environmental front either because innovation doesn’t necessarily fill the pockets of the rich, but as a result it feels like everything is going downhill, and deteriorating. Is there light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak? Or will this time of doom and gloom be the end of us as a civilization?

My Dear Readers and Journeyers, I have predicted in the past the demise of life as you know it, and now you see and feel the crumblings of a structure that is no longer viable, nor has it been for a long time. When I speak of learning love, compassion, and the appreciation of all life upon that planet, so do I include all aspects of humanity in that phase of learning. The United States has been in the forefront on many levels, but underneath lies the wiley monster of insatiable greed, seeking to gather the wealth that will eventually topple the tower it has constructed to store it in.

The tower is not a physical structure, but a structure within the framework of desire. Desire is destructive, and that is to be the culminating factor in the future of that great wide country that has so much to offer still. Is there a place of refuge from such desire? Well, the only place to go is innerly, to the place of inner calm, inner knowing, and act from there.

The great machinery that runs that country does so at great cost. The place of now is over-consumption in all walks of life, simply because it is available and has been easily marketed, and quickly lapped up. But there is no need for most of what Americans consider important. The marketing and easy availability of everything has created a country weak in infrastructure that is viable and practical, so there is too much reliance on being self-sufficient. But even that has not created true self-sufficiency, but an entitled reliance upon the ideas and products so readily available and offered.

Now as things shift, and negative ire arises, is there an opportunity to reduce the enormity of outward reaching, and expectations that the government will take care of everything, to the opportunity to wake up and become aware citizens of the world. Too long isolated, has that country been allowed to grow far beyond necessity, practicality, and propriety.

The rest of the world has watched in awe, but that awe has sunk to a level of shame for the countrymen of America. It is beginning to be noticed that little attempt is being made to participate in worldwide change, worldwide concepts of viable, sustainable living.

It is time for America to pull inward, to recreate smaller cities and towns, to pull back all that has gone outward, and return the skills and crafts to the people who desire to be true citizens of the world. Each and every American must see themselves as part of the bigger picture, and that picture is indeed equally bleak. But that does not mean throw in the towel, or give up because there is no correction to be made. Of course there is opportunity for correction, but it may not be what the consumer in all of you wants, but it is what the inner knowing spirit in all of you truly knows is right.

Attempt now change in your own lives, to shift from the unaware, unknowing style of consumer to the alert, clearly cognizant being you truly are. Inside all of you resides the one who knows, and that aspect of the self must emerge now, and stop accepting, and begin demanding true change.

Do not be afraid of change, for it will drive a hard bargain. Yet will it be a necessary force, as “the times they are a-changin’.” Are you prepared to simply sit in your seat, as the vehicle you are in is destroyed? Or will you stand up, and fight to get out? The fighters, the ones who are alert, clear thinking individuals will survive the great destruction that is happening all around you, through one dismantling of life as you know it after another.

Do your part by asking for and demanding change. This is not a joke, nor is it up to the government, for the government will not change unless you make it do so. The time is now. Shift from viewing it as a negative time, and see it as a positive time of great sweeping change. And then participate in it. Get out of your darkness and accept the fact that if you want light, you might have to go create it in a new manner, because when you go to turn on the switch you may not like what happens.

This is a time of opportunity for great inventions and innovations to emerge and become the proper means of change and growth. Be a part of the success of shift and change on a worldwide level by demanding first that your own environment change, your country change, and become aware of the truth of every action being proposed and taken. Lift the dark veils; don’t be afraid to accept that things are definitely being done wrong. And then look for clarity of thought, right action, and truth in every deed.

Good Luck, you Evolutionary Beings. Your enlightenment may aid you if you keep in mind the intent of evolution on this spiritual level. Seek inner change, and you will discover the means to outer change that may affect the way all beings perceive life. Spread the word of evolutionary growth, and keep that in mind as you figure out the most proper way to proceed upon the Earth, and how to get out of the muddle now perpetrated upon that planet. And don’t think your actions don’t count; of course they do! Be good Citizens of the World now, but be good Evolutionary Beings as well. That is how change can have the greatest affect.

#300 Life is Often Ready to Move Onward

Today’s question is asked by an anonymous reader.

Dear Jeanne,
Many years ago I had several miscarriages and at the time suffered greatly with feelings of loss, grief, and sadness. The question of why was constantly on my mind. In the following years, I would repeat the dates over and over in my mind, as I never wanted to forget them, but time moved on and eventually those dates were forgotten, but in my heart, we have remained connected. Recently, several women I know have had miscarriages, and now that I have awareness of life as an evolutionary journey, and recognize that we are all energy, the question of why has returned, but in a different way now. Perhaps you could explain this. Also, are we still connected to these energy spirits? Are they involved in our life in other ways? Do they continue their journey with other parents?
Thank you for your help, guidance and love.

My Dear Reader, yes, you are all energy beings, comprised of spirit first, and by that I mean the intent of the spirit in all of you to grow, evolve, and pursue life on another level. Your experiences of miscarriage are not unusual, nor are they meant to sadden or confuse you, but are meant to enlighten you to the energy of life, the life you live and the possibilities that lie in wait. Such brief excursions into life upon that planet, in the body of a woman that will not see the result of such growth, is purely for energetic gain on the part of the evolving being that does not reside very long upon that plane, and for the woman as well.

The final evolutionary means by which to evolve is one example of meaning for such a being, who simply slips in for a reason of growth and completion, while others slip into that realm for beginnings of new life connected to the mother or maternal candidate as well. Perhaps the necessity lies with you, the Reader, the Journeyer, now aware of evolutionary life, and perhaps it was this awareness that you were being presented with. As energy, as spirit intent to grow, were you perhaps sparked again and again with this knowledge to wake you up, and teach you to notice your own energy that continued onward; perhaps recharged each time in order to continue your journey, gifted with knowledge of life as energy, but also given energy as a result of your lessons.

I do not advocate getting too stuck in questioning the meaning of what such silent energy is presenting to you. For you could remain attached to sadness, with the possibility of remaining unfulfilled as a result of your attachment to ideas of loss. But luckily you were able to forget, and to move on, perhaps none the wiser, yet still directed to search for meaning in everything, and that aspect is good.

It is time to accept the energetic fact that life is not necessarily meant to be fulfilled upon that Earth realm, but is often ready to move onward. That being said, must you determine your place now. Find meaning in your past experiences as related to your ability to evolve, and find a true path of growth as an energy being. That has come to be your focus, so look always at the events in your life in this manner, sad though they may be, and full of suffering, agony, and grief. All events in a lifetime are meaningful aspects of growth, and should not be dismissed, nor denied as aspects of such growth.

You ask if you remain connected to this energy that once grew inside you? Such energy resides in you, buried in the timeframe of your life, and what was being presented to you at the time. This is an aspect of recapitulation that all must go through, both the women involved, and the men involved. What did it truly mean in your life at the time? As you recapitulate these events, remain in now; and gauge how your own evolutionary path took the route it did, for reasons of growth. If you have discovered the meaning of energy, of choice, and of a true path through life that leads to wholeness and fulfillment, so is it possible to accept everything along the way as having the utmost of meaning for your life.

Many such sparks of energetic miscarriage offer momentary energetic attunement to the mother, the human body offering her own energy while also receiving energy. In other cases is it more long term. You must discover your own evolutionary connection to every event in your own life to discover the true meaning for your own miscarriages. Often is it, as I said, a necessary aspect for the spirit energy that dips in and quickly leaves, with thanks for the energy you gave it to succeed, even as it gave you a gift of experience in return.

All souls must fulfill their energetic time upon the Earth, the realm of reason, with lessons to be learned about awareness, clarity of vision, and the discovery of life as energy connected to spirit intent. Each lifetime lived upon that Earth is an aspect of learning what it means to be spirit energy, leading eventually to completion of time upon that Earth; and eventually joining with your soul group is achieved. In the context of all life as energy, but also in the context of your own life now being lived, must you recapitulate in order to fully learn and understand what each event in your life meant, what each energy being you encountered in your life meant for this life’s growth. And with such knowledge, oriented toward such growth, and focused on life as a journey toward fulfillment of spirit intent, must you determine who you are, why you are here, why you had the experiences you had, fully understanding every aspect of the self, so that your life upon this Earth may be completed.

I can only answer certain questions, offering possibilities, but as always do I stress the inner work that must be done. That is your greatest chore upon that Earth; to understand why you personally have been presented with the challenges and the experiences at the times throughout your life when you were most vulnerable to being impacted by them. What does everything in your life mean to you on this journey you now take? That is what each of you, man, woman, and child must find out. And then you will understand everything in the context of your life thus far lived, and the life still to be experienced; for that awaits, still hidden from you, but there nonetheless.

Perhaps you have had glimpses of it? But it will stay an illusion, hidden in the veils, until you gain clarity on the meaning, the purpose, and the evolutionary potential of your life as it is now being presented to you. Good Luck, All You Journeyers! There are many questions that may be confusing you, as to why you had to have the experiences you did. The simple answer is that you needed them in order to evolve. But the complex answer is in that tiny word: why. Why, indeed? That, My Dears, is for each of you to find out.

Next Message

The next message (#300!) will be channeled and posted by noon on Tuesday, April 29, 2008. Until then there is quite a lot to contemplate! Please continue to send your questions. I too have enjoyed this new format.
Love to all of you,

#299 Learning Detachment, Purpose and the Reality of Life

Dear Jeanne,
Your messages lately have been extremely helpful to people. Today I would like to ask you to give us guidance for the next few days. How can we stay grounded in our inner work when the outside world pulls with so much that wants our attention? And how do we balance that with giving our energy to things that really do matter and need our participation and attention?

My Dear Jan, this is really a question of learning detachment, purpose, and the reality of life, as it must be lived, in a grounded and balanced manner. The inner work is of utmost importance, but so is attention to your duties equally so. To become sloppy in any area of life is not particularly proper for any reason. No excuses, I say. Get your jobs done, your duties attended to, and pay attention to your life upon that Earth in the minutest of details, leaving nothing undone.

An evolutionary being is attentive and energetic, with well-distributed balance in all areas of life. Know your place. Know your skills. Know your time frame. Know your most important chores and your least important, and know what is most meaningful for your life to be as you desire it. For to attend to the practical according to someone else’s plan is not conducive to living a meaningful life according to your own standards of right knowing and inner truths. You must all know who you are, where you stand on issues of importance, and you must prepare your selves to stick with the convictions and the truths of who you truly are.

Balance all of that with time each day for inner contemplation and interest in the inner self. Perhaps even just some quiet reading on the subject will be enough to sustain you until you have more time to explore the self. Allow inner thinking to take over the old chatter of voices that continue to control your thoughts and actions throughout the day. Determine to do things differently in your own solid inner true way. Look at life and your issues differently, from your inner perspective now, wholly owned, and recognizably coming from the true inner you. Contemplate your life, your outer life, from this true inner self now more often, and see how you begin to think, and act, and feel slightly, or even greatly differently from your old actions, and thoughts, and deeds.

These are all actions of detachment, learning to center your thoughts and actions from your inner you, rather than the outer you. But yes, it does require reserving time for the self. Perhaps on busy days this will have to wait until you are asleep, and then you can dream and explore your life with your true energetic self as your knowing guide. In times of stress return always to inner centered calm. With your heart immediately your focus, can you attend to awareness of outer turmoil differently. Return always to truth of the self, inner knowing of self, before action, before words are spoken, and before decisions are made. Return to inner knowing of self, and from this place of calm will right words be spoken, and right actions be taken.

Do not harbor fears for the future, for it has yet to unfold. Do you wish for it to unfold as it will? Or do you wish to plan every step of the way, so that real life has no opportunity to approach you and offer its gifts? I suggest allowing it to present itself, and then going into your place of inner knowing to determine your next direction. Allow life to flow, and you too will flow.

I can attest, My Dear Jan, that you are pretty good at such flow and acceptance of life, and you are open to the energy that approaches. This is as it should be, but your place of detachment sometimes jumps to the fore, before your inner knowing is truly heard. I do not recommend jumping ahead to anything, nor do I recommend concluding endings before a step has been taken. Take the step that is right, go bravely forward, heart first, always open to seeking resonance, and then determine your way.

Balance is necessary now, for all who reside upon that Earth. A deluge of outer energy is sweeping upon that plane, that level, stirring up the ire of many, and filling the pockets of the rich with greater riches, while the masses struggle. This time is a time of concern of coming devastation. Be certain that it will not last, but until it is over will there be much dispute, political and personal, about which is the best way to proceed.

You all know, My Dear Readers, that the best way to proceed in life is with your heart centered inner knowing speaking louder than the turmoil outside of you. Turn up the inner volume, My Dears, so you can hear what is being spoken. It will be the truth. Have no doubt about it.

I suggest you stick with that as you go into the next few days, staying centered there; calmly living your life; using only what you need; not taking what is not necessary; and protecting the Earth and all the creatures upon it, for they deserve life as much as you do, participants in this grand plan of life upon that planet, learning what it means to be in an evolutionary process.

That is what you all are, students and participants in an evolutionary process. Your place in the process is inside the self. Find your balance always there first. Then will you be better prepared, and ready to tackle the outer world and its desires and needs. Look to the truth for your answers. If you can’t quite find the truth, then go back into your heart center and look again. And listen well to your inner spirit; it speaks only truth, resonating outward through your heart its message of love, compassion, and right action.

#298 You Have Chosen to Live the Warrior’s Path

Today, a Warrior (Jeanne’s term) asks a question.

Dear Jeanne,
My question is, what in my evolutionary path would choose incest and molestation as a path to enlightenment? I have moved past many of the obstacles that these experiences presented and am proud of my success. I have been able to be present and offer comfort to other children, now adults, as they struggle with a similar past. I have used this experience to inspire me in my creative work. I have learned the power and purpose of forgiveness. Those experiences have blessed me in many ways. There is one last place that still holds the memories of that time and those experiences, and that place is my body. It holds many memories of the effects of this past, and I am challenged by how to let this go, and transform those places in my body that still remember and react.
Thank you.

My Dearest Reader, you have chosen to live the warrior’s path. Your journey began before your experiences presented themselves in this life. Your souls’ choices have given you the opportunity to far exceed expectations for growth. It sounds like your path has been one of extreme ability to conquer and move on.

The choice to elect such a path is the opportunity for a great leap forward, an evolutionary leap. The opportunity to transcend all the trappings of that world, and to be given the gift of knowing at an early age, is deeply hidden behind those experiences. Inside your body remain still many of those experiences, as yet unrecapitulated. And this is the next step you must take in order to complete your journey. For without total recapitulation, acceptance, and acquiescence to the facts of your journey thus far taken, will you remain unfulfilled.

To seek physical release is perhaps the most difficult aspect of the recapitulation process, for the body holds memory without words, without thoughts, and without purpose, except as reaction, and as reminder that your work is not done. Completion of the inner work must involve all that is hidden, ingrained, and automatic, the long lasting effects of your early childhood trauma.

But awareness of the memories, as tied to the physical body, must also be released. Have you moved past your memories with true recapitulation? Or have you left them behind, suitcases littering the path behind you, dusty and unopened? This is the challenge the body presents, and it does so when you least expect it because it knows that you are so guarded and aware in normal circumstances. Your body is telling you that you are not done yet. It is telling you that it still holds, deeply hidden, in quiet pockets, remnants of your past. Release of all memory; emptying of all pockets; scraping, and digging, and rinsing clean of all old discarded memories must be done in order for this process to be complete.

Can you accept your journey as a gift? Can you accept your self as a child warrior, steadily and forcefully marching into life with a mission to grow? Your earliest years, and your youth was peppered with the challenges of a lifetime, yet are such early beginnings full of lessons and abilities. You were deep in training from a young age. When most other children are being loved, protected, and nurtured, you were being presented with the tools of an evolutionary being. Have you not been given the opportunity to live a spiritual life, full of deep inner knowing of this aspect of your self?

Your treasures of this training lie deep in the folds and sinews of your body. Your enlightenment remains guarded and unfulfilled as you protect still the inner child. Yet does that inner child know that all your experiences where meaningful aspects of a journey well-taken for completion to become a reality. Do you choose to continue toward completion now, with that inner child in the forefront, safely past the years of trauma, yet stronger and more fiercely aware? Does that inner child not require release from your body, along with the pain that remains to remind you that it still waits for the work to be done?

I do not talk of rescue. I do not speak of coddling the big baby inside you. I speak only of understanding such a journey, horrific as it is, as an evolutionary one. What young child would choose such a journey? None would, of course; but your spirit chose it for evolutionary purposes, and that is what your spirit still intends. Pay attention to the experiences now as lessons in detachment, as tools of awareness, as well-planned examinations that enabled you to learn many skills that others struggle to understand long into adulthood. I speak of the abilities that such trauma presents in the form of out of body experience, clarity of knowing, and the ability to perceive and be aware in a heightened manner. Heightened awareness is one of the most important aspects of an evolutionary being, and I can guarantee that you learned this at an early age.

So My Dear Reader, you did choose such a journey. You did experience such early trauma, disappointment, and devastation for reasons of evolutionary growth; and it is a very good choice to have made, for such a journey is chock-full of good teachings. Your teachers were hell-bent on making you learn your lessons, aiding you in your growth. Did you do a good job as you struggled and grew? Your adulthood would speak volumes of praise for a journey well-taken. But in order to complete it, and continue your evolutionary journey, must you find out what your body still holds for you to discover. Take your innocent child self with you now, on a new exploration. Allow that child, the one who so bravely took that journey, to lead you back to where you need to go. Allow that warrior child to show you how it learned the lessons being taught, what they meant then, and what they mean now as you accept your path as a truly evolutionary one.

This child self knows everything. Not one iota of experience is forgotten, or misplaced; nor is that child traumatized. It is simply waiting for you, the adult, to understand that every aspect of your life thus far lived has been, and continues to be, preparation for learning what it means to be an evolutionary being, but most importantly an energy being.

March onward now. Put that child self upon your shoulders, and re-discover your innocence, but also your warrior child self. And the two of you take the recapitulation journey now, with a new perspective firmly in your knowing. And find your body, so that together you may live in it, a whole being, merged in the physical, and then will you have greater access to your whole energy being as well.

You are learning what it means to be an energy being. That is what your entire life is about, your story incomplete until you merge fully with your child self in full recapitulation and knowing of self in this manner. Your body is your vehicle through this life. It desires full participation and release, and it will continue to tell you this until you take care of what it is trying to alert you to. It asks for completion of that early journey in order to be released forward to new life, still to come. For the body desires life too, and that is what it is asking for. Give it life!
