Soulbyte for Monday March 9, 2020

You may be missing all the signs you’ve been asking for, all the answers you seek, unable to read the words of spirit, the language of the Universe. It does not speak in your native tongue, nor in any other human language, but in sign language, using symbols and objects, sound and synchronicity. Look again, perhaps you’ve gotten the answers to your questions, without noticing. When you ask for help, with true need and intent, you will receive. That is certain. But the method of delivery is left up to the whims of spirit!

Sending you love,

Chuck’s Place: Waiting

Storm clouds are gathering…

Today, I consult the I Ching with the following: Please provide guidance to navigate the energy of now.

Hexagram #5, Waiting, with moving lines in the first and fourth places, with a future of hexagram #28, Preponderance of the Great, is my answer.

The image of Waiting is water gathering in the sky, a picture of clouds filling with moisture. The obvious inference is, waiting for rain. This can only happen when the clouds have accrued enough density and are thus ready to release their bounty.

Applied to human circumstance, don’t try to push the river. The forces at work here, particularly in nature, are operating on their own schedule.

The moving line in the first place suggests that at present conditions are calm, the impending concern is still at a distance. The guidance suggests that one not exhaust one’s energetic reserves in advance, as this might weaken one’s ability to respond when it truly is time to act.

At the moving line in the fourth place, the storm has arrived. One finds oneself in quite a dangerous, precarious position. The guidance here is to stand fast, to allow fate to take its natural course. By embracing this composure, one is likely to not worsen the situation and, as a result, find the best way out.

The pending danger is more vividly expressed in the image of hexagram #28, a deeply sagging ridgepole, a roof soon to be caving in. This condition is transitory, as collapse is inevitable.

Thus the notion of a major shift, a revolution, is the inevitable consequence of this set of circumstances. The I Ching cautions that this is not to be achieved through forceful measures. The change is a natural and necessary transition, appropriate to the needs of the time.

In a nutshell, we are presently in a time of waiting. At this moment, the energy of major change is still gathering.

Be calm, remain aware, but don’t tax your energy with too much vigilance. The storm will arrive, a major transition will occur; it is inevitable.

Do not act precipitously. Follow your path of heart, regardless of who follows you.

In calm gratitude for the guidance,


Soulbyte for Thursday February 20, 2020

Life offers so many options, so many choices, so many decisions to make, but really there is only one path, a path with heart, the path where the heart leads, the path that feels so right that there is no doubt that it is the only path to take. Upon a path with heart, options, choices, and decisions are easily determined by asking the heart to guide, for the heart already knows its path with heart, every step of the way. And a warrior knows to trust it, for a warrior knows that a path with heart is the path of fulfillment, not just full of promise but promising, not just hopeful but full of hope, not just possible but full of possibilities that are aligned with every heart-centered step. Is your path a path with heart? Only the heart knows.

A Message for Humanity from Jeanne: Look Within

Whatever path you find yourself on, keep breathing…

Good Morning! We begin the week with a nice reminder that we have within us all we need to change and grow, to get calm, and to more fully appreciate the life we are in. Our own breath is perhaps our most valuable healing tool.

Wishing you the very best on your journey!

Sending you love,
