Soulbyte for Thursday January 23, 2020

When you need help don’t be afraid to ask for it. Trust that it will come in some form. When you least expect it and in a surprising manner you will be given exactly what you need. Your spirit is always ready and willing. Are you? There are guides aplenty, just waiting. Give doubt the boot and let innocence be your first guide. It will show you how to ask in the right way, with a humble heart. Give it a try and see what happens. It might be just the right thing for you at this time in your life.

Sending you love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

It’s never too late to change. No matter your circumstances, your ingrained behaviors, your personal issues, you can always change, take a new direction, find a new path. Let instinct be your guide, honed by spirit, your own inner guide that wishes you only well. Calamity, despair, depression are all calls from your spirit, trying to get your attention, urging you to heed the call. Will you do it this time? Will you give yourself an opportunity to turn your life in a completely new direction? It’s totally up to you. No one else can make that decision for you, but they can certainly offer support and guidance, just as your spirit so desperately wishes to do. Spirit is calling right now. Will you answer? It’s up to you.

Sending you love,

A Message for Humanity from Jeanne: Your Spirit is Always Knocking


Find spirit everywhere. Do you notice it?

In our audio channeling today we are encouraged to reconnect with our own spirit, the part of ourselves that constantly seeks to guide us and show us the right way. Perhaps we ignore it, rationalize it away, or forget about it, but it is there nonetheless, unrelentingly seeking to get our attention.

There’s no time like now to reconnect.

Sending you all love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

You may not be doing exactly what you should be doing. You may not be saying exactly what you should be saying, to yourself or to others. You may not be catching all the signs that come to guide you, or noticing how infinity, the universe, tries to teach you, for you can bet that you have missed and continue to miss many calls that seek to lead you onto your path of heart. But don’t worry! There is still time for a course correction! It’s never too late! Turn off the voices in your head, that incessant internal dialogue that does you no good, and instead tune into the quiet of your heart. Sit there in its silence and wait for guidance to come, for the truth to be clearly spoken, for the right action to be revealed. It will all come, and much more.

Sending you love,

Chuck’s Place: Seeing & Being Seen

I Ching: What is the guidance for all in this time of great disarray?

Seeing the Present & the Future…
– Diagram by Chuck Ketchel

As can be readily seen, the first four throws produced highly charged Yin Lines, topped with two solid Yang lines.

The image generated is one of a large tower on a mountain that captures a wide view of the countryside. Likewise, it is easily seen from a great distance. Thus, the image urges developing a broad perspective, as well as being a good example for all to see.

The four activated building blocks of the tower’s supporting columns (represented by the X marks) offer nuanced guidance and turn into their opposites, as they become the Primal Spirit: The Creative, hexagram #1. These four lines highlight the necessary progressive changes required before one steps into directing their power effectively. Their individual guidance, in the order of their position, as follows:

  1. Contemplation hindered by immaturity. A shallow, thoughtless view of prevailing forces hinders effective leadership. Counsel encourages growing up and accepting responsibility. Contemplate the fuller picture of the interconnected whole.
  2. One looks out only through the crack of the door, a narrow one-sided point of view. This is the narcissistic perspective that relates everything to oneself. Guidance: dispassionately widen your horizon. Tolerate and strive to understand and value the views of others.
  3. Place of transition. Going to the heart center to receive guidance from the high Soul as to right action. This is ego moving beyond blame and one-sidedness, seeking inner truth.
  4. Time for action. Being in alignment with the deepest truth, ego acts in accordance with the true needs of the interconnected whole.

Once these issues are addressed, allowing one to penetrate the objective truth and take the necessary actions to support that truth, one becomes seen and experienced by others as an example to be followed, as they contemplate the truth of their own lives. The tower that affords the broadest view is the healing model for all.

With the strength afforded by surmounting the limitations to objective contemplation, one is fortified to direct the dynamic Spirit energy of the Creative, the life force itself. This is the optimal arrangement, a mature, broadminded leader who directs the life force toward the true needs of the interconnected whole.

The Creative is the active side of infinity. What’s at question is how that energy will be directed. As shamans point out, the life force can be directed toward good or evil deeds. Both can be manifested on a grand scale. Leadership that contemplates the true needs of the interconnected self, and the interconnected universe, is best fit to direct the power of the Creative.

Contemplate with humility, objectivity, and equanimity from the heart center, as you direct the creative force of your life and assess the intent of others.

Contemplating,

Chuck
