Soulbyte for Thursday July 18, 2019

Don’t jump the gun. Practice patience throughout the day. Hold back what seeks to burst out of you until you are sure it is right. Sometimes a moment’s pause is all that is needed to thwart a lifetime of pain. Sometimes a few extra breaths are the answer to a moment of panic or anxiety. Sometimes just sitting still is the best solution to an urge to get up and run. In quiet patient waiting, things become clearer, things change, and a new perspective has the opportunity to reveal itself. Take a moment. Breathe. And then breathe again. Then decide a course of action. In patient waiting, let your heart decide.

Soulbyte for Wednesday July 17, 2019

Curtail your energy, conserving it for that which is most necessary. Keep it safe within rather than expending it without unnecessarily. You don’t have to do so much. Far better to take some personal quiet time than to run around doing nothing. Study how you use your energy. What are you wasting it on? What can you turn off? What can you turn away from? Who can you depart from? Who or what simply drains your energy? To be a caring person takes energy, but some giving is right and some giving is not. It might be time to stop doing something that is not good for you. Decide what’s most important and focus your energy there. In all areas of life strive to be focused, concentrated, and energetically appropriate. Make new decisions that are healthy, kind and loving toward yourself so that you may be energetically available when it is right for that which is most necessary. It’s okay to take care of yourself too.

Share the bounty. The desire for more, to accumulate merely to own, leads to imbalance. Instead, seek balance and modesty. Become a steward of the small and doable rather than seeking to possess for possession’s sake alone. There is no need for more than you can handle. In humble living comes satisfaction. In caring for little arrives abundance of pleasure. In having only what you need comes the energy to steward properly and with delight. Seek balance in everything you strive for, and maintain your little plot of the world, your place in it, so that all may enjoy the same pleasures as you yourself seek. To be in the Tao is to be right with everything, no matter the circumstances. Strive for that, to be right with what is, in each moment. And live with loving kindness for all beings in your heart. That is how to experience true joy and contentment.

A Message for Humanity from Jeanne: Protect Yourself


Nature provides protection, such as the furriness of a peach…

In our audio channeling this week we are advised to protect our energy from outside influences. It’s an especially appropriate message as the energy builds to a full moon tomorrow. Full moon energy can be very powerful, keeping us awake at night, leaving our energy depleted during the day, sending us to influential highs and devastating lows. Rather than getting attached to too much of the extremes, seek balance and stability instead by protecting your energy.

And have a wonderful week too!

Soulbyte for Monday July 15, 2019

Take time each day to reset, to reassert and restate your intentions, your goals, your dreams, and to remind yourself that you are a being on a journey of importance to you and your Soul, that your choices and decisions matter, and to make choices and decisions that are progressive, positive, and body and Soul enhancing. In this manner, move forward on your path of heart confident that although you may not know where you are or why you are there in this moment, in the long run you know that your heart is leading you in the right direction, for your heart does only that which is right. Trust your heart. Though you may feel blind and disoriented, though you may feel lost and distant, though your heart’s intent may still seem like a distant dream, keep it alive, for it is the dream that is important. Remain confident of this. Keep to your path of heart, knowing that in the end it will bring you to your heart’s fulfillment.
