#106 Stop Building Dams

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

Enact now change and the energy will support you. Be your own guide, the captain of your ship, and the sole owner of your vessel. Become the ultimate director of your journey, your fate, and your destiny. NOW is the time to finally be the real you.

I push this upon you with increasing force because the time is right, the flow of energy is right, and it is time for you, all of you, to finally accept responsibility and become the one in control. Alert the big baby that toddler time is over, that diaper changing is over, that pacifiers are being thrown away. Bed down now that recalcitrant inner ego child, the one who seeks control, who overthrows your wise decision making, and mutinizes your ship. It is now time to bunk the big baby and take over the progress of your life, fully in control, with maturity and adult knowing fully in command. Allow your spirit to tap into the energy it feels. Allow it to guide you as you navigate the waters of your life.

I use water metaphors to emphasize flow, flow of energy, and flow of life, and also to allow you to understand that life is like water in how it continues on, unstoppable, no matter what barriers are put up, constructed, to keep back the flow. Eventually is there need to allow water to escape, or all barriers will be forced down. Think of a dam and how powerful must be that dam to hold back the force of water. Your own life force is as strong as that water and seeks escape, or it will force you into life situations whether you are ready or not.

Stop building dams and allow your life force, your energy, the water of you to flow naturally, freely, and unencumbered now. Allow free flowing life to become your main focus and you will allow yourself to meet, to join, and to grow, exponentially, with the energy now upon that earth.

Open the dam gates slowly, but with conviction, and allow your energy to escape into the river of energy that flows briskly alongside your dammed up pond of stagnant energy. Allow yourself to finally experience life anew now, with energetic force, and potential as your catalyst, and your inner spirit as your guide.

As I have instructed, take over steering your own vessel. But, how can you get anywhere if your vessel is landlocked or far from water? You must place your vessel now into the flow, upon the river of life, and begin a new journey. Let your spirit guide you, but keep your adult self in command, even as your innocence grants you permission to take this journey. Leave your ego behind now, and tuck the big baby asleep, and grab your truth, your innocent awakening spirit, and go on a new journey. It’s time!

#105 Take Over the Steering of Your Ship

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a short message or word of guidance for us today?

Time to undertake now this journey you are on with concerted effort, diligence, and enthusiasm. Are you not riding your ship upon the waves of change? Are you not in the middle of life itself? Are you not finding yourself alone at the helm, where you should be? Well, accept the fact that you are in charge of your life, and there is no choice in that matter. Do you not live in your body, your vehicle upon that earth? Do you not inhabit it alone, with your spirit awakening inside you? Admit that you are there, upon that journey, upon those high seas, and those calm waters, and those raging turbulent swells for a reason.

Take over the steering of your ship. Direct yourself upon the course that is set, and allow yourself to truly live. Stop all the procrastinating, all the doubting, all the fearing, all the blaming, and all the crying. Accept fully now your journey, your place in life, and the course you are now on. Move now to make it work for you by enacting, not only change, but determination and conviction, with firm decision making, setting your sights on your highest good as your goal.

Be good citizens, not only of the world, but of your inner world, of yourself, and of your spirit. Become today the true self you wish to be, the self you are working so hard to be, and the self you imagine you will one day be. Be it now! Be all that you wish by enacting the necessary change, by accepting the known truth, by forcing yourself to take the first step in a new direction.

The energy of today, and I, Jeanne Marie Ketchel, who do offer you guidance, urge this upon you. Find your course, set your sails, plant your hands firmly upon the ship’s steering wheel, and firmly guide yourself now to the place you need and desire most. Do not look beyond yourself during this time of firm commitment to growth. Keep your focus and stay your course with your intent strongly pushing you forward on your journey. This is good for today. The energy desires firm commitment to growth. It desires steadiness and focus. It desires determination, but most of all it desires your spirit intent as the captain of your ship. Go with this energy for growth!

#104 Acquiesce to the Inner Self

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

Do not hesitate to embrace your own inner knowing. Though you may doubt its validity, do not doubt the truth of its voice. Though you may not wish to consider it, do not disregard it. Though you may consider it mere childish and wishful yearning, do not dismiss it, for the inner voice is the voice of truth, of reason, and of knowledge long held and long hidden, though your spirit has yearned for its expression.

Allow it now expression. Allow the experiences in your life to guide you to understanding its truth, spoken only to you, and tested on a daily basis as you follow the signs that seek to guide you. Your inner knowing does not seek to fool you, or to disarm you, but simply to allow you to flow more easily in your life.

Allow your life to flow more naturally now as you guide yourself along your path with your inner knowing as your compass and your innocence as first mate. Your ship will naturally follow the currents, and under the power of the energy upon the earth will its course be set and its journey effortless. You will meet controversy, and difficulty, and challenge, and hard times along the way, for that is life, but you will flow more easily if you allow yourself to flow with inner knowing as your guide.

Embrace your inner knowing and you will fully embrace your journey. Ignore it and your struggles will continue to hinder your progress. The best word for today is acquiesce, to the inner self, the inner knowing, and the inner guide. Allow this aspect of the self to fully emerge now. Trust it, embrace it, and see what happens as you flow with its guidance.

#103 Focus

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

Stay focused. Stay firmly planted upon your path. Do not waver. Do not stray. Do not be pulled by what may cross your path or fly at you from out of nowhere. Do not become bogged down by minutiae, but instead forge onward into your future and your chosen path. You are leading yourself now with greater assurance, and your focused attention is serving you well. Do not doubt this or the course you have chosen, for all that you undertake is right for you now. Whatever choices you have made and decisions enacted must be fully owned, and accepted, and lived out in all manner of speaking in order to be fulfilling and give you sustenance for your continued journey.

Your way may not yet be clear, but it is direct, and all that is required now is continued focus.

#102 The Deeper Meaning

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

Do not get caught by what you may perceive is going on around you, but investigate for the deeper meaning. The deeper meaning must relate to you and your journey, no matter what you are presented with. In the context of life, and presentation of life by others, must you continually ask the self for clarification and meaning relating to your journey. Keep the ego aside. Keep the desires aside. Keep the big baby quiet, and seek real meaning for yourself.

Your inner knowing will give you the answers though they may only be whispered, or difficult to decipher in the scrambled mix of inner chatter. Clear your own channel to yourself and allow the deeper meaning to become clear. Dig deeply. Take the shovel of your own curiosity and your own desire for inner knowing and dig deeply in the quiet of the self. All others around you must be placed upon the edge of your world, their needs, and desires, and problems on the periphery as you take your spade and quietly, with focused attention, dig a channel to your inner self and your deepest knowing. Here will you begin to hear, and to perceive, the meaning of all that relates to you in your life and on your journey.

Today is a good day for this contemplation. Allow for personal quiet and time of individual perception to be your focus for at least part of your day, or your evening. Withdraw with you shovel, and begin to dig deeper now. This is good, for what you discover may amaze you, or it may trouble you, or it may change your path abruptly, but no matter what treasure you dig up will it be the right gift to give yourself. Dig deeper for meaning in your life today. Examine everything you discover as if it had never been unearthed before, put it aside, and dig the next artifact of who you are, and seek the meaning of it, and so on. The excavation of the self is an extremely important aspect of growth. Do not deny this fact, but give it as a gift to your self. Pick a sturdy shovel and begin!
