#48 Encrustment

Dear Jeanne,
I keep hearing the word encrustment. Is that what you want to talk about today? What do you mean by it?

You will not have success accessing the energy and dipping your wholeness into the flow as long as you remain trapped in your encrustment of old. To enter the energy flow must you achieve a semblance of fluidity. In order to tap into your resonant energy flow that is now swirling upon that earth must you meet it with equal flow. Otherwise, your attempts to fully engage in its power will falter.

I know this is a time of great confrontation and change. I know that many are being dared, not only because of my encouragement, but because of the reality of life, to make great shifts in their lives. In order to do so smoothly and be available to access the energy that will carry you forward must you make a concerted effort to disengage from old ways, snap yourself free of your old shells of protection and denial, and step forward, freed of those old encrustments, so that your entry into life can happen differently now.

To stay bound, whether it be to a mental construct, a physical construct, a societal construct, or a construct originally placed upon you in your unknowing, does not matter. What does matter is that you have become supremely aware of such a construct, and now are you becoming aware of the need to dismantle it. For you have begun to learn and to experience a greater dimension beyond the normal constructs, a new view of life, and a deeper view of spirit, and the possibilities that life in its many layers holds for you. You have discovered that life is much more than you have been taught. Aside from what you’ve learned as a child and through your youth and into adulthood have you also taken upon your shoulders many other burdens, or constructs, that have ruled your life and kept you encapsulated in old ways that are no longer applicable to your new life and your new intentions.

Encrustments can be broken, peeled away, and discarded, that is the beauty of them. They are not really that difficult to remove once you decide to take them off you. Your ability to make the decision has been honed now, and it is just your reluctance that holds you back, from cracking, on the inside, the shell that holds you from your true self, your true energy, and your true abilities.

As the energy invites, so do I know you desire its company in your life. I know you are eager to engage it, and I also know how difficult it is to leave old ways and old comforts. Did I not have to do such a thing myself when I left that earth? I resided quite fiercely in a worn, depleted body, yet did I fight to remain in it, even though it had done all it could for me. I did not want to leave it, though it could no longer help me, nor could it offer any growth. To throw aside that encrustment and escape into pure energy was my own supreme challenge.

You are not at such a place yet, I hope, but you are surely at a place of growth, and that is what you must look forward to. Reluctance is but an old technique, an old habit. That too I learned, for in my release did I find energy, more than enough to take me forward. The energy now awaiting your own energy is of this sort, energy that is helpful, guiding, and prepared for your growth.

Give up your fears, your reluctance, your old habits of holding yourself in, and exude now release, and accept the possibility of energetic growth. Do what you personally need to do to chip and crack away at your encasement, even as the seeds in the ground and the buds on the trees do also need to crack through the encasement that holds them protected. But now is the protection no longer necessary. The only thing that can happen now is growth. It is inevitable.

So, as you have contemplated your situation, and begun to feel the energy around you over the past few days, have you not also wished to release yourself from your physical and mental woes, the constructs of old habits that hold you so tight and inhibit your growth? Do you not wish to find the key to your own release? It resides only inside you, and you alone. But, you are being offered guidance, and good advice to lead you forward to new life on many levels. But, it is up to you. The daring and the bravery both must come from you, to truly burst forth from your encasement and fully experience the energy of growth and evolution.

The buds upon the trees and bushes know that they cannot halt their growth. They know the inevitability of life’s energy and the force of nature that will bring them forth into wholeness, into their new form, their future selves. They do not have the power to resist such energy, nor do they wish to, for they flow in the energy of life at its most basic and beautiful. You too have access to this life force of nature. You too are a creature, a bud, an aspect of nature that is fully capable of going with the flow of energy.

Continue to feel this energy. Find your ability inside you to release yourself from your encasement, and become as the tiny bud, the seed, eager to burst forth and find what new form you are capable of. This is all about growth you know. Life is about growth. Why do you hesitate? It is inevitable. Now is as good a time as ever, and by that I mean, that it is truly the best time ever to go with the flow, and grow.

#47 Energy Song

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for humanity today and all who are making decisions to step into the energy of change as you have dared us?

I want you to feel the energy. I want you to not only take my word for it that it exists, but I want you to experience it, first hand, so that you understand what I am speaking of when I speak of the power of this energy now upon that earth.

There is really no better way than to experience it in your calm place of balance. It is vibrant energy, able to be felt physically, as well as psychically. Your own personal energy, your spirit energy, is alive with it, and this you can tap into as you center yourself.

Take the time now to meditate in calmness. Isolate yourself as often as possible and give yourself permission to sit in the energy flow and feel it as it swirls around and through you. This is very possible, especially if you recall my earlier message regarding the energy of your spirit being like water, and your physical self also being as nothing but oxygen and molecules in action. You are but pure energy, so of course you can feel energy.

Become pure vibratory energy. In your calm center find you spirit vibration and bring it to a place of awareness so that you will feel the energy that is now around you as more vibrant still, more forceful, and felt as pressing lightly against your own energy, urging you, pushing you, and guiding you. If you acknowledge the feel of it, then will you also be able to tap into it and allow it to take you forward on your journey, the only fuel you need.

Find your own vibratory resonance in this flow and you will find a good match for your personal energy body. This resonance, this personal match will be your guide and you will know that you are on the right track by the feel of this responding energy as it hums and sings to match your own spirit song.

Energy hums and sings; though you may not hear it with your ears your spirit will recognize it and know when it has met its perfect match. This will happen only if you stay in your center long enough to know well your own personal energy song. You may already know it well, or you may have had glimpses of it, or you may have not yet felt it clearly, but it does exist, and you will know it, recognize it, and desire more of it once you realize that it is your truth, your calm, and your balance and that it desires connection to you as well.

So, this energy balance is the next thing to cultivate from your place of calm physical and spiritual balance that you have been learning. Try to find this over the next few days and see if you can feel that great energy of change flowing around you, even as you can feel air and water flowing around you, and the whisper of your own knowing. Go deeper now and become pure energy in your meditation. You do not have to go anywhere with it. Just find it and feel it in you, and then find and feel it outside of you. This is good practice. For in the future will you need this understanding of energy in order to proceed on your journey into newness and to learn to trust that energy is life, and energy is all that matters, both on that earth and elsewhere. For energy affects everything, but how can you understand this if you do not experience first your own energy and then the energy around you? See where this takes you!

#46 Into the Inevitable

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have any advice for us all today? What is the state of the world energy now, and how does that affect our own decisions and choices?

The energy that swirls upon that earth, as I have said many times, seeks change among you as inhabitants and protectors, users and abusers of that great planet, but it also requests that you begin with change upon your own self, that you may affect greatly all around you as you confront your own truths. The energy does not swirl gently, but it pushes and asks for commitment and dedication to the things that really matter. It asks that trivialities be pushed aside like old playthings, and serious endeavors to change and face truth now be exercised.

Upon each of your shoulders is the need to decide a new path now. That is what the energy pushes for, invites you to do, and gives you no choice, really. For what choice do you really have if there is no going back, no option but to move forward into the inevitable? Even if you do not, at this time, choose change, it is coming anyway. Change is coming whether or not you elect to go with change in your personal life.

So, what are your options, to stay stuck, and await the inevitable smothering, as change blankets you and leaves you in continual fog? Or, do you choose to acquiesce to the inevitability of change, and greet it with excitement, wondering where it will take you? Do you hide now under the covers, or do you choose to stand boldly and accept the inevitable? Change will happen now no matter what you decide in your own life to do. Will you partake, or will you hunker down and pretend it is not happening? Will you go with the flow of life and this grand change, or will you sit like a rock in the stream while all energy flows around you?

The energy will flow past like water, anyway. Do you choose to engage and grow, evolve, and find new life? Do you choose to see where it takes you, both in your inner life and your outer life? Do you dare? That seems to be the challenge now at hand for all mankind: do you dare to clearly see and acknowledge the truth and ride the clarity of energy as the opportunity arises?

Even in your stagnancy will you be affected, have no doubt about this, for on a worldwide level is there now great changes to come, monumental shifts, and unexpected calamities that will affect all upon that earth. Do you choose to pretend that it is not so? Do you choose to lie to yourself and continue to uphold a fallacy that will keep you in oblivion? Or, do you choose now to observe with clarity, to accept the truth as it is revealed to you, and to make decisions based on what you know and your new outlook on life?

You have been offered not only this challenge, but you have also been challenged to take your new learning to a new level. Your awareness is greater now. Your ability to perceive your world, and the greater world, differently, has slowly been developing to a keen awareness that reality has many definitions and many layers. Do not forget what you know. Do not push aside your knowing spirit as you ask yourself the questions that will lead you to the right path. Do not be afraid. If you keep in mind that change is inevitable anyway, then your choice becomes one of deciding to flow with change or standing still against the change. The change is coming, that I guarantee. So, how do you want to conduct yourself, your life, your gathering awareness, during this time of change?

You have made a commitment to growth and evolution. Is it but half-hearted? Are you playing games? Are you dipping into the flow of energy with no real interest or total commitment? Do you seek to change or not? I guess that is the advice I offer today, to find whether or not your convictions are real and truthful, and whether or not you truly desire growth on many levels. You will have changes, opportunities, and much energetic help available over the next months and years. There has not been this example of energy exchange in a long time. The magnitude of this energy force is phenomenal, so watch out.

Uncork your bottle that holds in your true spirit. Allow the fear to be removed so that your choice is based on awareness, truth, and the reality of life, both your own and the life of the world around you. Change is inevitable. Find now your way to make it become part of your life with acceptance, excitement, and anticipation, and your journey will be less stressful and more flowing. Acquiesce to the inevitable and you will find that your journey will become even clearer and your place in life more defined. After all, is this not what you seek, your true purpose in life? Well, the door to reality has just opened, but it takes you making the decision to walk through it before anything can happen. If you stand there too long trying to decide you may be pushed through by an intense wave of energy anyway, or it may simply wash over you and leave you wondering what just happened? Either way will you find, that change has occurred.

Step into the energy now. Allow change to enter your life. Find the springtime of growth, your own springtime of growth. Participate in it fully with your inner knowing, your innate abilities now waking up and asking for light and water and nurturing cultivation in order to continue growing. Give yourself the gift of change, and you give yourself the gift of life and the opportunity for evolution on the spirit level.

Awaken. Find your inner spirit and coddle it, center it, balance it, and dare it now to step out into the air and the light and become your guide, your companion, and your new self. Feel the beauty of this new life you have inside you that wants to live and grow and take you where you need to go.

Do not read my messages and then forget about them, for then are you not actively learning and seeking growth. Let the words, the ideas, the propositions I pose become internally active, and allow them to resonate as your life progresses and unfolds. Do you not experience what I am suggesting? Do you not feel the energy? Are you reading the signs in your life? Are you training your awareness? My messages will be mere words unless you work them into your life as meaningful and helpful assistance to a life that is complicated, eventful, and often frightening. But, if you keep your awareness tuned to looking for resonance, eventually will you understand the significance of what I speak of.

I speak to the individual, but I also speak to the masses. I encourage you, as an individual, to grow and become aware of your inner world, but I also encourage you to become more aware of your outer world, when you are ready. For your inner world and your outer world must be in balance or your progress will be slow. You exist there, in that one level of reality that is earth time, but you also exist in your individual and your spirit realities. In order to become cognizant of all of those realities, simultaneously able to see the truths of all, and with the ability to see what is now hidden from your eyes that remain fixed on earth time reality, must you maintain equal balance in all your worlds.

This will happen, the feel of it will come to you in brief moments of clarity as you experience energy and resonance, as you read the signs and test their validity, as you become scientists of alternate realities, and as you remain focused on growth. You have learned balance in your life on one level, now extend it further so that your calm and your balance extend into your other realities. Calm your tensely muscled body, that is your vehicle, and allow your spirit release as you uncork it from the confines of that structured reality you call your world. Allow it to calmly explore as you maintain your balance. Take with you all that you experience and place it firmly in your knowing. Allow it to seek explanation in the terminology that you have been learning as you read my messages. Allow your inner knowing to trust what you experience as real, but also give yourself access to truth at all times, and let truth be your guide. Your experiences will become your truths, and this will be how you know that you can trust your decisions and your learning of awareness.

So, today I urge a little daring of you all. I encourage some bravery and trust in your new abilities to guide you and take you where you need to go, forward, into the inevitable. I’ll see you on the other side of the doorway.

#45 Forge a New Rivulet

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have any messages for us today, on this first day of spring?

Be open to everything now. Do not dismiss anything as being insignificant. Do not fall back into old patterns of doubt or stuckness. Now is the time of growth, not re-growth but new growth, for spring is the awakening time, but it is also a time of rejuvenation and newness. From the old roots now come new shoots never before seen or experienced, new life that has, as yet, not tilted towards the sun or felt the nurturing rains or the playful winds.

Allow your own spirit to feel and exhilarate in this newness that is not only all around you, but in you as well. Allow the new habit of awareness to seep deeper into your knowing. Be open now to all that exists in your world. Regard your place there and know, by your intent and your openness, that all that comes to you is wanting your engagement. Understand growth differently now. With your new awareness of otherness, of other energies and other factors as having not only significance but also power in your life, allow your spirit to remain open so that your awareness may flourish even as the wild oats and flowers do flourish.

I am merely suggesting that your awareness has grown to a certain keenness now and the loss of that keenness would be a shame at this pertinent time, a time of true awakening and eagerness for growth.

Are you not eager in your soul for springtime and the growth that it affords? Are you not ready to continue your practice of awareness, to notice and experience your life differently now? Take advantage of this beginning of new life all around you, to tap into the powerful energy of it. Realize, that even as dormancy has laid its heavy head upon the ground and kept life slumbering so has your spirit also resided in dormancy by the heavy head of life upon it. But now, the magic of the times and the energy that has been building inside the earth, and in your own spirit, requests that you allow it to burst forth now in its eagerness for new life.

Elect to ride the energy, as the natural world elects to ride it. Find yourself as new, and growing, as the flowers and the trees. Allow yourself to spread your wings and become as the birds flying to and fro, preparing their nests for new life. Prepare your own spirit daily for this excursion into and this explosion of new life. We have long been at work teaching and learning many new things. Now is your time of experience. Time to put you learnings to the test. Time to remain open, aware, and permissive, so that your world now opens its doors to new cognitive realities as you read the signs, notice the abilities you have developed, and continually allow your innocence to be your guide.

Your innocence is your root from which all of these things spring, if you allow them to. Your innocence is opening the door to the energy of spring, breathing in the fresh air, and wanting permission to step out and discover, perhaps for the first time, the unbelievable magic of new life.

I offer only the guidance for you to do this. I offer, but you control your decisions and your openness. Are you ready to continue now on your journey, ready to “see” what actually awaits you now? Take your innocence by the hand. For a few moments forget everything that troubles you and gently urge your innocence out the door. It’s okay now. Don’t be afraid. There is only a new fascinating life awaiting your exploration of it. That’s all, just a new life wanting you to notice it, experience it, and continue to grow from it.

Seek always your calm. Find your balance. Give yourself permission to trust all the signs that come to lead you on your way as being important, and necessary, but most of all, directly present for you and your attention. So, pay attention to them. They are there for you to notice, to question, to utilize, and to continually discover a new life unfolding as your awareness hones to a new sharpness.

Allow life to be magical and it will be magical. Allow your innocence to lead you and you will enter a new reality. Allow your knowing to speak to you and in your new awareness will you hear it more clearly. Allow your truth to be spoken and your seeing to be real. All of these things must you test and experience in order to grow, and now is as good a time as any to begin the test.

Unearth your energy. Release it now from its old shell. Let it burst forth as the energy inside the buds in nature do wish to burst forth. Give it freedom to be your catalyst now, and see what new life will develop from your central energy zone; your spirit and your knowing, that is.

Close your eyes a little while now and listen. What are you really hearing? Is it life, energy, spirit, and innocence that you hear as it wakes up and begins a new period of growth unencumbered by memory or fear, simply alive and bursting with energy? Give your own spirit the same energetic freedom now to take you on an adventure, whether it be a small one, an acceptance of a new self in the world perhaps, or a big adventure that will dramatically change your life. If you follow your spirit, your inner knowing, reading all the signs in your life as you turn your back on the old ones, so will you have enough guidance to choose wisely a new path.

There are many new paths of energy now opening up upon that earth. There is a river of life energy overflowing its banks, seeking connection, and offering progress for anyone who desires the challenge of forging a new rivulet that eventually will lead to a new river of energetic force. Find your rivulet, your new path of growth, now, while this energy bursts forth, and you will have success as you ride its positive charge that will carry you forward into newness. Allow your spirit the freedom to take you there, into a whole new world. You never know where you might end up, but believe me, it will be pretty incredible. That, I can guarantee. Everything now upon that earth points in the direction of growth and change, even drastic change. Are you ready for it?

#44 The Habit of Recapitulation

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for us today? Where do we go from here?

Feel the void around you that will last but a short time now. But also feel, deep within you, the changes that have come about as you have made your choices and acted upon the knowing and clarity you have recently gained. Do not hold yourself hostage if you have elected to stay in oblivion yet a while longer. That is your choice, and so must you contend with the decision of this election. But, if you have elected the path of growth and continued seeking of your internal and external resolutions so will you now begin to adjust to the energy flow you have elected to step into.

Feel yourself on this new journey, aware yet afraid, full of compassion, yet also aware that you must hold back in order for others to have their own journeys, aware of your place now on your path like never before, aware of your needs, your desires, your safety of self, in order to progress. Find consolation and the requisite safety within yourself now. Place upon your own shoulders all that you know and trust, all that you have learned, and present it to yourself as a gift that will travel with you. For your clarity, your awareness, and your understanding of your life have become as tracts in a guidebook that you have studied and put to many tests and seen the results of as we have worked these many months. Pack this trusty guidebook into your knapsack, and know that it offers what you need. Your journey now is well prepared, your knowing primed, and your trust flowing, so that as you step out into the energy of new life, arrayed in your new garments, so can you go forward with confidence in yourself to handle all that comes to cross your path or meet you as you journey.

Look not backwards now, except as necessary to investigate that which you have left undone or unclear or substantially buried. It is not a good idea to keep hidden from yourself anything that will hinder your progress or keep you from your full potential as a free spirit, fully awake, and able to continue in full command. To have needling issues, hurting your progress and keeping you physically and psychically attached to old ways, will not bode well for the traveler who wishes to go on to wholeness. Wholeness involves total knowledge of the self, followed by total emptying of the self. For how can you have wholeness if you carry things that block so that all is not revealed in truth and clarity?

The process of recapitulation that I have often spoken of is going to be a lifelong process, a habit that you must learn to utilize for your continued growth. It is necessary and essential in order to fully accept the self, and be able to travel forward with the self fully available as companion and guide. As you know, this habit of recapitulation involves pausing to investigate the past, whether of difficulty or a past of joy, a past of intimacy or a past of dispute, no matter the situation the recapitulation of it requires total openness and the ability to look at the situation differently as you have learned to do with every aspect of your life now. As you recapitulate and see your situations of the past differently so will you learn about yourself differently too. You will understand your actions, your decisions, and your consequences differently. You will begin to piece together your life with a new clarity, rewriting your adventures, with new truths and old truths firmly scripted together so that your life makes total sense. In this process do you unburden yourself and free yourself of old ideas, memories, and fallacies that have kept you attached and slowed your spirit progress.

Your spirit desires evolution, but it cannot succeed if strapped to old ideas and falsely accused or wrongly suspected of deeds not done or actions not taken. Your spirit also does not progress if tied to ancient deeds or full of regret for wrongs committed. Learn from everything in your life, do not dismiss even the past that weighs heavily upon your conscience for the things that have gone unnoticed or been heavily sorrowful upon your knowing. All events, whether good or bad, whether committed upon or committed by must, by necessity, be truthfully viewed and given to the self in all clarity and honesty so that amends may be made by the self, for the self to move on and grow.

If there remain unresolved difficulties regarding others it is the duty of the self to resolve those difficulties with the new knowing, and trust that the journey one is now upon is fully available and dedicated to truth, and wherever it leads so is it the right one. The right journey will be revealed as truth as you confront your truths and know by the resonance in your heart that you are on the correct path at last.

Feel now the energy urging you to grow, to take control and command of your spirit, that guides you to accept your place as not only a seeker, but a spiritual being who has gained immensely in clarity and trust. Use these new tools to be your own guide now. Accept your appointment with yourself. Take up your book of knowing, and in your new finery go forward, bravely, into the flow of new life. You will find your way as long as you remain truthful, honest with the self and in your dealings with others, as long as you travel with compassion in your heart and understanding for others also upon their journeys. You will do well if you maintain your commitment to growth, and to self-study as a means of remaining aware and always forward focused.

Question always your actions and look always at your direction to see if it is the right way to go. Question your heart, not your head. Find resonance with your spirit at every fork in the road, at every twist and turn of events, and at every step toward growth. Is this the way my spirit desires to go? Is this the right step for my spirit to take? Does this feel right? Does it fit my spirit? Am I comfortable in this action, or this job, or this possibility as a proper spirit decision?

Stay always in your spirit. Stay in your balance. Even if you feel drawn far from your spirit at times, recall your center and your balance, and what that feels like, and get back there again. Reassert yourself in this spirit-centered place, and look out from your calmness, and make your decisions from this place of knowing and spiritual resonance. In this manner will you find that your life will flow smoothly, and your direction will carry you to the truth of your reality, and the meaning of your life. Do not doubt that such meaning exists, for all upon that earth have impact and have meaningful lives. Perhaps yours has yet to be fully revealed but, if you are well on this journey of spirit, you can be assured that sooner or later will you understand the meaning of your life as it relates to the world, on earth, and in infinity too.

Seek always growth of spirit. Seek always truth. Seek always awareness, and you will do well on your journey. Your progress will not be hindered if you learn to flow with your life as a river flows through the earth, finding its way, energetically alive and alert as it seeks its way forward, always flowing and full of spirit, no matter what it comes up against. Be as water now as you join the energy flow now upon that earth. Flow with your spirit energy and you will do well.
