Slow down. Take things slowly, as they come, carefully pondering what to do rather than leaping ahead without knowing where you are going. Sometimes it’s okay to leap, to enter into the unknown, but even that should be done with some knowledge of how to navigate. When unexpected choices must be made there is no need to be rushed or pressured. Take your time and make the choice that is right for you.

Sending you love,

It’s not that hard to be kind. It’s not that hard to choose a way of life that includes kindness and compassion as guiding forces and love as the basis for all actions. There is no lack in choosing a path of heart that incorporates loving kindness and compassion, for it is as natural as the rose bush that produces only roses of beauty, the butterfly that emerges in all its delicacy and the birdsong that sounds only pleasant melodious notes. It’s natural to turn in the direction of kindness and loving compassion. In alignment with that, all will be well!

Sending you love,

When a thing is done it cannot be undone, but if everything is a lesson then learn by what has transpired to make better decisions in the future. Proceed with a clear mind, unburdened of regret and sadness, and make new choices in alignment with your evolving spirit rather than in attachment to things, desires, and unnecessary wants. Plan your future according to the love principle that says love is the answer. How can you turn your corner of the world into a more loving place? How can you grow love so that it prospers? How can you be the most loving being possible? These are the questions to ask yourself now. This is your future.

Sending you all love,

Keep upon your path of change, your path of heart, no matter what comes to thwart your progress, even if you feel you have made a mistake. In truth, there are no mistakes upon a path of heart, for it is the intent of the heart that is the driving force and that does not change if it is the heart’s true intent. And thus there are really no wrong choices, only choices that challenge, choices that confront, choices that ask you to make another new decision that will move you onward, one day and one step at a time, having learned from your previous day’s decisions. If you have made a decision, it must be the right one, so deal with it; use it to your full advantage to keep you focused upon your path of heart. And don’t forget, a path of heart is a loving path, a path of kindness and compassion, and so utilize all of its characteristics for your own good. For who matters more than you upon your path of heart? Accept that learning too is the intent of a path of heart. Every day is another day to learn something new.

#672 The Ultimate Goal

Jan Ketchel channeling Jeanne Marie Ketchel

Dear Jeanne,
Here we are, it’s Monday again, and a new work week begins. As I sit and feel the energy of today I find that I don’t have any specific questions for you, but I wonder: Do you care to offer us a spring message of guidance?

My Dear One, and All My Readers, do not forget, as you feel and test the energy outside of you, to also feel the unique inner energy that describes who you are, your constant hum of self, which nestles deep inside awaiting visitation. I suggest that this week ahead of you is ideal for gaining inner clarity, inner resolution, and inner calm, and it is ideal energy for taking action based on this inner connection. Inner self must now be acknowledged more fully. Inner self must be given the respect deserved, so hard earned and eagerly awaiting recognition. Inner self speaks words of wisdom. And that is what you must now connect to.

In quiet reserve will your inner hearing and speaking become more pronounced, but it is your outer self who must make the decisions to act, to listen, and to decide that, yes, inner self, you are absolutely right! I am in alignment with you. I dare to act on what you say, for I know, wholeheartedly, that you speak words of truth.

So, set an intent this week, My Dear Ones, to meet in a quiet spot; your inner self and your outer self sitting together in order to make a decision that will propel you both forward. For you know, deep inside, that this is what you need right now. You are at a point of great decision regarding something in your life, something that you both fear and desire, and that something is CHANGE.

Change arrives in many forms. It may be large and looming or small and subtle. It may frighten you because you see it so clearly or it may not even affect you consciously because you have no inkling of it. Yet in both instances you feel restless, uncertain, and obviously desirable of SOMETHING. What is the SOMETHING that has arisen in your life, My Dear Ones? What looms or approaches? What seeks your attention? What comes quietly to ask you to help it emerge from out of you, the same way the flowers and greenery in nature burst forth from the spring ground? What inside you is asking for release? For that is the energy you are now confronted with: the energy of release.

How do you choose to walk upon that earth knowing that SOMETHING desires release? I suggest that some deep inner quiet is going to be most necessary as you move forward in your lives. I suggest that only in finding the inner voice, the deeper self, will you find the answers you seek. You may look outside of you for signs that you are making the right choices, but allow those outer signs to truly reflect your inner self and not the desires of the outer self.

And how will you know what is right? The desires of the inner self will challenge you. They will ask you to break out of your shells, away from your old habits and expectations, to truly embrace a new you. This new you will ask you to stand in solitary repose upon your quiet spot and to feel your independence, your free spirit self, your inner self yearning for freedom. This inner self will ask you to be daring, to be brave, to push aside your fears and to know that whatever decisions and choices for change that you make in your life will be right for you to make, because the inner spirit knows that you will only make the choices that you need to make. But it will leave it up to you to figure out why you are making the choices you are deciding are most right for you to make now, at this current time.

Be advised that no decision is permanent, for if you are looking for permanence then you are not ready for true change. For true change means that everything is in constant flux and evolution, even you, My Dears. Can you accept that your decisions will open new doors in the weeks ahead? Can you enter a world of change and be accepting of what is to come? Can you allow your self to be open and daring, aligned with inner spirit, even though you are afraid?

In conclusion, I suggest that you take in the energy of change in heart-centered breathing, in quiet self-reverie. And, in inner calmness, give the two selves —the inner self and the ego self— some time together so that a consensus may be achieved, so that energies may align for the ultimate goal: CHANGE.
