Chuck’s Place: Finding Protection

Let the light of love shine bright…

Recently, Jan and I ran into an old timer from Bob Monroe’s early days of setting up The Monroe Institute and the New Land Community where we live. He was brimming with vibrant energy and enthusiasm. I happened to mention how fortunate it was that we had just averted a war abroad.

His response was that he wasn’t aware of that and he showed no interest in even knowing with whom we had averted war. He explained that since the Vietnam War he’d taken his attention off the affairs of the outside world and focused on being present to his more immediate experience. He was filled to the brim with the fullness of life afforded by his decision to take control of where he focused his attention.

The negativity of now is overwhelming and infectious. Perhaps the method of our newfound friend to completely stop the world of news from reaching his ears might seem drastic, but as Jeanne’s channeled message of yesterday suggests, we all must find protection.

Don Juan Matus suggested avoiding interaction or any behavior that draws attention as a stranger in a strange land. The I Ching gives similar guidance to The Wanderer, who must find a place to stay at an unfamiliar inn. The disintegration of social mores at the highest level each day now renders us all strangers in a strange land.

Turning inward with the unbending intent to remain positive is a powerful protection. Negativity needs the fertile soil of reaction to feed its fire. Let one’s reaction simply be to inwardly remain positive. Let the candlelight of love be shielded in the heart. Know that its time of sharing its flame with an outer torch is on the horizon. Love will win, love conquers all.

Jeanne warns of entities seen and unseen who can influence the energy of now. She encourages to call upon protective guides and high self to guide and protect in this time of vulnerability. I offer, in closing, the Gateway Affirmation developed by Bob Monroe, perhaps the most experienced multidimensional journeyer while in human form, as a prayerful request for support in such challenging times:

I am more than my physical body.

Because I am more than physical matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the physical world.

Therefore, I deeply desire to Expand, to Experience; to Know, to Understand; to Control, to Use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to me and to those who follow me.

Also, I deeply desire the help and cooperation, the assistance, the understanding of those individuals whose wisdom, development, and experience are equal to or greater than my own.

I ask their guidance and protection from any influence or any source that might provide me with less than my stated desires.

Unbendingly positive,


A Message for Humanity from Jeanne: Protect Yourself

Nature provides protection, such as the furriness of a peach…

In our audio channeling this week we are advised to protect our energy from outside influences. It’s an especially appropriate message as the energy builds to a full moon tomorrow. Full moon energy can be very powerful, keeping us awake at night, leaving our energy depleted during the day, sending us to influential highs and devastating lows. Rather than getting attached to too much of the extremes, seek balance and stability instead by protecting your energy.

And have a wonderful week too!

Soulbyte for Monday November 5, 2018

There is a part of you that wants what it wants when it wants it, but do not let it overpower you. Do not fall prey to that which is unconscious. Do not let in that which is truly unwanted. Draw firm lines around yourself and within yourself, a sacred circle within which to protect your energy. Remain a sacred entity, secure in your sacred circle, knowing that you are right to keep your energy for that which is most important. There are times when it is important to turn inward, regroup, reset, and rejuvenate. Such times are as important as those times when it is right to be expansive and giving, sharing of your energy. Those times will soon return, but for now keep your energy safe and allow it nurturance in ways that are positive and healthy, spiritually enhancing and invigorating, so that you will have plenty to give when the giving time comes around again. For now, turn inward.
