Chuck’s Place: Being Intent

Woke up at midnight to a powerful headache. So begins the internal dialogue: “You didn’t take care of yourself. You brought this on. You won’t be able to sleep well. Tomorrow will be compromised. There is no way this headache will go away. Well, maybe if you took some Motrin. Some healer you are. You are powerless to change this pain…”

The impact of this messaging stirs anxiety and fear, and a general belief of defeat and failure, accompanied by a somewhat depressed mood.

The net effect of this internal dialogue is to securely embody a definition of self as flawed, limited, and of low value. To stalk such an experience is to add an impartial observer alongside this internal dialogue, with the intent to separate itself from these negative wrappings, and unleash the fullness of possibilities.

From this impartial place of awareness, the observer suspends judgment, awaiting other possibilities. Suddenly, a vague memory appears with some certain knowledge: “You can relieve your headache through your own agency, through your own intent.”

Immediately, the internal dialogue chips in: “That experience you think you remember was a fluke, maybe it didn’t really even happen. There’s no way you can eliminate your headache short of 1000mg of Motrin. Some healer you are.”

The stalking observer decides to place its full attention upon the details of its prior self-healing experience. Recapitulating that experience, it knows it began by placing full awareness upon the sensation of pain in the exact locale of the head from which it pulsated. From there, the command had been issued to release and relax, deeper and deeper.

The stalker decides to apply this method. The inner dialogue casts its aspersions, but the stalker finds inner silence, by simply placing its full attention upon the sensation, and giving the command to release and relax. No attention is given to the internal dialogue nor any other thought thread. The stalking observer then fully merges with the intent, into a state of being intent.

Within minutes, as relaxation and release deepen, the head becomes completely spacious, as inhaled breath flows freely through its caverns. The headache is completely erased! It never returns. Being intent has operationalized and fully realized its intent.

Don Juan Matus joked with his much younger apprentice, Carlos Castaneda, about how much physically older Carlos appeared than he. Don Juan attributed his youthful vitality to his refusal to uphold physical agreements he had never signed up for.

Socialization shapes and limits what we believe we are capable of physically changing. The body itself is governed by inherited archetypal intents, in the form of subconscious programs. The internal dialogue upholds these ‘facts’ of physical life. These facts are rarely challenged by consciousness.

Yogis, for eons, have demonstrated that full consciousness can be brought to, and take control of, every organ and biological system in the body. Being intent is the active agent of that consciousness. The key is to suspend the judgments of the internal dialogue, leading to inner silence, and then shifting into being intent.

The Sorcerers of Ancient Mexico became such masters of being intent that they turned their prowess into defying death, staying in human form indefinitely. Modern seers, though they appreciate such feats, see them as traps, as all beings must eventually change form through physical death, the destiny intent of the human form.

Nonetheless, being intent certainly opens the door to possibilities in human form, which are well-worth exploring. To be able to erase a full blown headache and slip into deeply rejuvenating sleep is deeply appreciated. It may not always be possible, but my motto, taken from my earliest mentor, Dr. Efren Ramirez, has always been: Anything is possible, until proven otherwise.

May all discover the possibilities of being intent for themselves.

Remain flexible, agile enough so that you can always regain your balance, no matter what transpires, within or without. Intentionally gather your equilibrium so that you are always fluid, so that you go with the flow, without self-judgment or self-criticism but only with love for yourself and the most stupendous journey that is your life. Embrace yourself tenderly and yet stand strong in your conviction to change, but also be as flexible as the ocean turning its tides against the pull of the moon, going with the flow, as easy and natural as all that.

Sending you love,

A Message for Humanity from Jeanne: Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Imagine calmness…

In today’s channeled message we are asked to deepen our connection to our own path of heart, to our own spirit guide within us, to find our way to beauty and truth within, rather than focusing on what is happening outside of us.

We all have the same abilities within, the abilities to connect with spirit, to change ourselves, and then to assist in changing our world, one new thought, one new idea, one new experience at a time.

Sending you all love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Attain stability within in order to attain stability without, for your own inner strength is your greatest anchor in the world you reside in. If you are strong and secure within yourself nothing can harm you or pull you from your path of heart.  From your stable inner center comes the guidance you need to navigate life as a being of light and love, as a being of knowledge and wisdom, for yes, all of this lies within you. All beings are warriors of light and love, full of knowledge and wisdom, they just don’t know it yet, even you! What you seek really does lie within, and what you need the most you already possess. Go within and discover your inner warrior, your true self. You won’t be disappointed. As within, so without.

Sending you love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Are you keeping your promises to yourself? Continuously check your alignment with your new path, with your intent to change. Focus on your feet, literally, on one step at a time, on what your feet are doing in each moment, on where they are taking you, on the road ahead of you. Don’t worry about what was or what is to come. Focus only on the moment that is, on each step as you take it, and where you are going. Reaffirm your intent to change each day, before you take that first step, making sure to set your foot down upon your path of heart. With your own heart’s intent firmly stated and planted in each step you take, renew your promises to yourself and carry on with a smile on your face, with positive thoughts in your mind, and with determination in every step. Know that you can do it. You are doing it. One day and one happy step at a time.

Sending you love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne
