A Message for Humanity From Jeanne: Reconnect With Your Innocence


Innocence, as pristine as a beautiful winter’s day…

Today’s channeled message reminds us of who we really are, as much spirit as anything else. Reconnecting with this part of ourselves offers magical opportunities to discover who we truly are and who we can truly become.

Sending you love,

Just a Bag of Bones

What is this body that we are so attached to but a mere bag of bones. When the life force leaves a body, what is left is just that, a bag of bones. Yet we spend our lives and our energy totally attached to the bag of bones that we identify as “Me.”

We are, in reality, so much more than that. As Robert Monroe has taught so many explorers of higher consciousness: “You are more than your physical body.”

Our life force, our spirit energy, though it resides inside our bag of bones finds ways to also leave it, to go beyond it and explore. Exploits outside of our bag of bones happen most naturally and most familiarly at night, when we dream. We all dream, even if we can’t remember doing so. Thus, we’ve all had experiences of our selves as spirit energy alone, sans bag of bones.

So many things can hold us back from uninhibitedly experiencing our spirit energy. To fully appreciate such experiences, to be able to engage in them with our full awareness, we need to be freed of our fears, our incessant internal dialogue, our traumas, our sexual abuse, our judgments, and anything else that might hold us back from further exploration of the many and varied spiritual possibilities we all hold within us.

Recapitulation is one means by which to rid ourselves of the things that hold us back from greater enjoyment of life, from spiritual exploration, and from understanding the knowledge and wisdom that our spirit might present us with.

During recapitulation, our spirit helps us to recall and relive past events while simultaneously keeping us grounded in our bodies, that bag of bones that we love so much, or hate so much, or just can’t seem to reconcile with.

As we recapitulate, old beliefs about ourselves are stripped away. Our energy is freed from where it has been stuck; in memories, in all those old beliefs about ourselves, in entanglements with the energy of others, in pains, regrets, resentments, self-pity, judgments, etc.; the list is endless.

In the process we learn to trust our spirit, that part of ourselves that is so eager to explore beyond the physical body, that just can’t wait to show us what we are really made of—energy! Our own spirit then becomes our greatest teacher and guide, and we come into our wholeness.

As we lose our fears and discover that we are really energetic beings, we become fluid and fearless explorers, in-body and out-of-body. But best of all, we become loving beings, fully happy in our bag of bones.

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

Soulbyte for Monday January 13, 2020

Remain steady upon your path of heart, your path of change, your path of inner resolve, and without fear face your innermost difficulties, that which catches you up and seeks to block your progress, that which turns you back upon your old thoughts, ideas, and beliefs about yourself. You are fully capable of making the changes you desire. You are fully capable of fulfilling your own dreams. You are fully capable of finally taking charge and reforming your own life and yourself into a new life and a new self. You are capable of not only dreaming a new dream but of enacting that new dream, one day and one step at a time. Dream on with your good new dream of you uppermost in your mind, with that good new dream of you filling your heartspace, and with that good new dream of you the positive force behind every act you take. With love and determination, dream on, for you are more than worth it. And without a doubt, you can do it!

Sending you love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne

Soulbyte for Wednesday January 8, 2020

Stay focused on your path of heart, upon your own feet, as they take one small step and then another. Stop to look around you, to notice the clouds in the air, the wind on your cheek, the sounds all around you. You are a part of it all, and each small step brings you closer to more fully understanding that it is the enjoyment of such small things that matter the most. One day, one small step after another has created a whole world, and it has created you as well, in this moment now, on this day, in this time, a simple warrior taking a most momentous journey, seeking your wholeness, your peace, and your most precious Self. Take another step toward all of that with love in your heart, more certain than ever that you are more than worth it!

Sending you love,

The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne
