#384 A Warrior Must Cut Through the Tangled Web of Conflict with Self

Today, a Reader asks a question about breaking negative patterns of behavior and resistance to the journey, etc.

I have, in the past several years, embarked upon a healing journey deeper than ever before and am striving to heal my body, mind, and spirit, and to hold them in congruence with my deepest purpose on heaven and earth. My progress is in fits and starts and I find that the closer I am to a negative pattern breaking, the more it almost strengthens its hold and I “act out” in my life with “symptoms” of resistance toward the growth and healing. Primarily my struggles right now are in trusting the universe that I am divinely protected and secure, and do not need external reassurance or safety to feel whole. This struggle shows up most in my intimate and work relationships where I experience much insecurity, jealousy, envy, and fear regarding my position, importance, role, etc. I sense that my healing work is in my grief, in facing my fear of my deepest loneliness, and I feel stuck. Any advice or direction would be much appreciated.
Thank you,

My Dearest Nancy, your dilemma is not one of inconsistency or resistance per se, but is, in fact, one of breakthrough. You get to the point of breakthrough, yet do you not have the strength or the guts to climb over the wall before you. But you do not, in fact, always need to climb over the wall. Often is there a better way, and that is what I will address today, at least in part. For your conflict is most greatly within, and the walls, though looming strong and potent, do not in fact exist.

So, that is where we will begin. Your walls do not exist. Your blockages and your places of misstep do not exist, but are placed there for your growth anyway. So, they do not exist, yet they do exist! See? What a conundrum we have here!

Your growth is based on your intent to evolve. Your inner you is tired of confronting the old issues and is tired of finding that the same patterns of behavior are often repeated. So the inner you shows them to you over and over again, until you no longer need them or find them attractive. But mostly, the inner you will show you these things until you no longer notice them, and that will be the point of clarity. When your walls no longer exist, then will you be able to move on.

Take now another scenario. You speak of negative patterns of behavior, of reverting to sadness, loneliness, and incarceration of spirit in those old patterns. But what are they really except energetic patterns, and in fact do not either exist, except for as long as you need them.

Your spirit does want growth and evolution. Your spirit does seek reconciliation with your past, with your outer self, and with your reactions to what life presents you with. But your inner spirit also knows that you must confront your dilemmas for as long as your need to, and that means until they no longer hold any enticement, power, or cures for you.

Your inner spirit knows that these stumbling blocks, pits, walls, and encasements that you find nearby to wrap your self in are necessary, until they no longer work for you. I think that, energetically speaking, are you at a breaking away point, and this is also a breakthrough point. Just as you are about to release your self from your old behaviors they return to confront you again and again, saying, “Of course you need us. We are your best friends. We are your comforts, and your oblivion. We are your way of dealing with your problems, and we work so well together!” They entice you to them, and you go, not because you are weak, or needy, or obsessive and soft, but because you are a warrior who must cut through the tangled web of conflict with self in order to grow.

Your first new sword must be a new view, and that is what I seek to offer you today. Do not look upon your struggles in the same way now, but visualize them as but energetic guidance that seeks to point out to you your most vulnerable aspects of self. Once you know, for sure, that these aspects of self are real, and very necessary to address, so can you learn to accept them. Of course you are vulnerable and afraid. Of course you wish to be more than those aspects of self that you keep so deeply buried inside, pushing them down as far as possible so that you can appear to be in control, confident, smart, and totally in command of your self, your life, your work, your relationships, and your inner and outer selves. But underneath do we know that you struggle greatly, and this is good!

Now, at these times of breakthrough, which you experience as break downs in your progress, so are you being asked to acknowledge not only that this vulnerable self is real, but also that the outer self has too much control. You have allowed your outer self to have too much power and your little inner self must come to the rescue, and drag you back into feelings of familiarity by presenting you with your old comforts.

So look upon your battlegrounds, upon the weapons you have chosen in the past, upon the armor you have chosen to wear, and upon the stances you have taken. Are any of those things truly you? Or are they just readily available and naturally easy to take on, simply because they are accessible and fit you so well? I think you are finding that they do not in fact fit you so well any more, and that is wonderful. Your own swords are prodding you to grow. They are sticking their points into your old body protections and saying to you, “Look we aren’t able to do the job any more.”

So, do you see what I am pointing out to you, My Dear Nancy, fighting warrior woman? You are fighting a losing battle if you continue to reach for the same old swords and the same old facades of presentation of self.

It is time to go to your vulnerable one and accept her. It is time to put down your fighting weapons and put your arms around your inner self and accept your vulnerabilities, which you seem to refer to as faults, but are in fact more real and truthful than the weapons you have chosen to break through life with. Now is it time to break inward, to slice through your armor, your self, from the outside in. Find the little girl who resides behind the masks and allow her to be seen, to be accepted, and to be invited out into the air.

You do not need your weapons and your armor, your facemasks, and your attitudes of the old warrior self. Now it is time to acknowledge that beautifully real inner self who suggests that your spirit potential lies in the truths spoken from within. It is time to be real.

When you now feel your self beginning to react in your old fashion, when you feel your outer self reach for an old idea, an old tactic, an old word, an old activity, or old comforts, go instead to your little girl self and say, “Yes, I know. It’s okay to be sad. It’s okay to be angry, frustrated, lost, confused. And it’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be lost for a while in those vulnerable feelings. But it is not okay to stay there.” Just as it is not okay for you to stay in your old places either.

Now must you restore your balance too. As you comfort your inner child self and acknowledge and accept her truths, so must your real adult self be the comforter, but also the listener, priestly and safe, godly and right knowing, objective, and utterly present at all times in order to grow. This balance of innocence and grace must now become your inner truth and your outer truth. For you are, in fact, an adult. You are, in fact, quite worldly, capable, intelligent, and worthy of living this life you have worked so hard to achieve. You must acknowledge and accept this outer self too. You must promote your qualities of good, of power, of strength, and of prosperity. But you must do so only in relationship to your inner truths and not some outer untruths that constantly present themselves to you in order to prod you along on your journey.

So you see My Dear One, your journey does not entail a simple answer, as you well know, to your question of getting caught. Your journey has led you, thus far, to your patterns of behavior in order to point out to you that it is time to reject them, to turn inward and acknowledge why you have had to repeatedly confront the same dilemmas, and to ask you to acknowledge that they have stood you well for so long, but that you are ready to acquiesce now, to your inner child self and your adult knowing self, in truthful balance.

That is where your struggle will now shift to as you take your next steps. You will now be confronted with keeping your child self truthfully speaking truths and your adult self also truthfully speaking truths. You will be confronted with the two of you learning how to have a better relationship as you soften and accept that you are a human being, but that you are also an energy being who can take steps of reconciliation, confrontation, and growth in a different manner now.

Find your security in this new balance of self. Your energetic self is ready to flow in the energy of life. Your inner self is asking you to accept the vulnerable truths of the self as accurate assessments of who you truly are, but they are also just new starting points to finding your inner/outer balance as you learn to truly love your self. Only then will you be able to heal, to love your place in the world, and to be able to acquiesce to what your journey has in store for you, as you continue to grow, evolve, and become whole.

#383 How Can We Reconcile the Mother We Have Chosen in Light of the Journey We Must Each Take

Today, a Reader asks a relationship question about the mother figure.

Hi Jeanne,
In regards to relationships, I understand that all relationships are opportunities to understand one’s own self, to look inside of who we are and not project onto another the things we like or don’t like. As in your channeling message, “Relationships Can Be Tricky,” you were answering a question from a woman who was speaking of a man, what seemed to be a romantic relationship. What if the relationship is your mother? That the person you deem to be your supporter, encourager, nurturer, is the person who seems to be holding you back?

In my situation, my mother would give you the shirt off her back, but remind you of it later. She is very generous and loving, but also thinks much of her own self, her needs and wants. She is devout in her religious beliefs, but seems to live in hypocrisy of true faith because she has a need to control those around her. She is either the tyrant or the victim, and her communication with me is sprinkled with “shoulds” and “what I would do.” She yells when she doesn’t get her way, and I get scared. I usually give in, as do those around me, but recently I have stood in my adulthood, and that was met with insults and hurtful words.

My question is this: In my life, there are things that I want to do that go against her wants. I want to move away from home with my husband and baby, and that is very hurtful to her. I am clouded by disloyalty and guilt, as well as the idea of how this will affect my daughter, not having her extended family in her life growing up. It seems “mother” is such an important role on this earth plane. So how do I extract myself from the enmeshment of my relationship with her and do what I want in my life and not repeat it with my own daughter? How do I separate the idea of LOVE and doing what’s right for myself is OK?

My Dearest Reader, your desires for completion are strong as you rail against this icon, this stalwart presence, whom all must one day depart from in order to truly grow. Your question revolves around your own growth, separation, and preparation to become a truly great mother in your own right. You question also your own existence in this question, for all do we come from mothers, but for what reason? And how can we reconcile the mother we have chosen in light of the journey we must each take as individuals upon our own process of completion?

So, I pose these questions on top of your own, hoping to aid you to not only take your next step toward independent living, but also to the completion of this lifetime as an evolving being connected to past lifetimes.

To begin with, your process upon that earth is not contained only in your present life, but is truly connected to the life you lived before. If you can accept that fact, so can you find within your present situation reason for why you “got” the mother you got. I say that word “got” lightly and with loaded significance at the same time. For in your choosing of this lifetime so did you “get” the mother you needed.

Your first step is to acknowledge that this mother is perfect for you, for she offers you access to your own potential by pointing out to you what you are most sensitive to. In her hurtful words lies some truth you must reckon with. In her own untruths does she point out to you your own truths as well. You notice her fallibilities, but can you own those as well? Can you allow that she holds truths in her barren words that do not nurture your soul? Can you acknowledge that she points out to you what you must learn? Can you understand that she is your earliest teacher?

She did at one time protect, nurture, and allow you to grow, for you have come a long way. You are now a mother who is confronted with a child you too must protect, nurture, and teach independence to. You have already taken back much of your own energy from this mother as you have begun to disagree, to see her more clearly as a struggling being, and as a daughter who knows she must hurt this woman who has stood by her through much of life. Yes, separation at birth is painful for the mother during that birthing process. And then again and again is there painful separation, reminding us that as mothers do we give birth many times in a lifetime.

This your own mother is confronting again and again, yet does she not wish to be reminded that she is always in process of female detachment. Her own process must be viewed differently from your own, but know that you too will one day have to birth your own daughter again. Life is not ever simple, straightforward, and easy, but full of many steps that lead to fulfillment of our destinies and completion of our lives.

But to return to your current situation, must you turn to your self now without casting aside your mother, by compassionately allowing her process to proceed alongside yours, as she once allowed you to grow alongside her. In compassionate growth is there recognition of nurturing guidance. Must you now teach your mother? I think you must. But you must do this as you would teach your own daughter, for I think this is who she once was, in your previous life.

Do not deny your trust in your own journey either, for now is a time of reconciliation of a mother who must learn to trust a daughter and a daughter who must learn to trust a mother. You see? This is a reciprocal process overlapping your lives, each in present confrontation and then also in reverse confrontation, simultaneously.

What kind of mother are you seeking to be? What lessons do you want your own mother to teach you? What truths do you want to hear? What truths will you accept, acknowledge, and acquiesce to? So are these questions also viable for your own mother to ask, and your own daughter who resides inside you and outside you.

For you have within you your inner child who looks to that mother for comfort, for direction, and for love. Yet must you part, and place distance between you, if you are to proceed and truly live your dreams. In my own life, as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, did I part from my mother at birth. I lived a life of unknowing of that birth mother, yet did I transpire and grow, nurtured by her at a distance far greater than truth, for it was nurturance by intent. And this is what true love is, energetic intent to trust that your love, your maternal love, can bridge all difficulties, trials, teachings, and even distance placed before you by happenstance, or on purpose by your own desire to grow and have your own life, separate from your mother’s needs.

Question your own needs now, even as you question your mother’s needs to remain in control. For her control is but her own shield against truths that do not awaken her spirit yet. Has you own spirit alerted you to your own truths? Are you accepting of them? Are you daring enough to acquiesce to them, and deal with all that may come your way as you adventure out into the world? Are you ready to face you disconnected self? For you will be placed in uncomfortable situations, even as you venture forth, even with your intent strong, your love tethered, and your inner self learning to trust your journey.

This is the next step you must reconcile with, your own journey. What is your own journey? Where is it leading you? What is this time of transition suggesting you do? What is it proposing that you have not quite gotten yet? For with transition and change is there always an underlying discovery about the self that must be encountered or ignored. It is your choice. Do you choose to encounter something about your self now as you encounter your mother’s anger and seemingly insensitive disregard for your own desires? What is she showing you about your self? As she subjects you to her hypocrisies, her questions, her proclamations, and her skeptical behaviors, what truth is she speaking?

Do not brush her aside as too troublesome. For even in her meanness does she present you with an underlying truth. Does your inner child know what it is? I think she does. But are you ready to allow her to process it and look now at YOU for mothering and nurturing?

Your time of transition now turns to you as mother. You have the opportunity to truly turn the mother in the mirror to your self now and not look back at the mother behind you. Look at your self in the mirror. YOU are a mother. Your role is as mother to your child, but also to your self. You are at a time of separation, rebirth, and the struggle that comes with nurturing your own inner child, even as you must nurture your baby who needs you so deeply.

Does your inner child accept this baby at your breast? Does your inner child respect you for your growth into adulthood? Does your inner child look to you for continued growth? Or does she wish to remain your baby, your inner baby? What is your concern regarding her growth away from your mother, for this you must truly encounter in order to keep growing and live your own life.

I realize that I have perhaps presented you with more questions than you asked me! This is a very complicated issue, which you address, and I will say this: I had great issue with this in my own life, as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, and it is not easily resolved. It can take many lifetimes. But I see in your awakening that you are truthfully seeking resolution, and that is good!

Do not fall into feelings of sadness for your mother as you seek to take your own journey, but send her your nurturing compassion, even though you may not feel it being reciprocally sent along with you on your journey, as you make your choice to grow. That may be your challenge, to send compassionate love, even when it is not sent to you.

Do not harbor anger, or the fears your mother harbors inside her. Show her, by your actions, that you can be a loving daughter/mother and mother/daughter even though you are far apart. By your example may you be guided to free your own daughter. Your inner child/daughter requests this of you.

Good Luck with your life choices, My Dear One. You are at a crossroads. You are at a point of truth. You are at a fork in the road. The signs are being spoken, but do you understand the language? Look to your inner child for the unscrambling of the truths of those words. She knows all the answers. And then look to your baby’s innocent face, and trust the journey you have before you as her mother.

#382 Change Your View of the World-Turn it Upside Down

Dear Jeanne,
Well, the energies continue to amaze, push, and challenge. In spite of all the problems in America and the world, I feel a strong sense of hopefulness on the verge of finally being allowed expression. Can you offer us guidance as we begin a new month of change?

Do not harbor negative qualities of despair, but do indeed turn now to hopeful murmurings that may further your intent to grow and evolve. Within each one of you, is this a good time to allow positive outlook to well up on your horizon. Look not at your feet so much now, but look outward upon the horizon where change looms as a mighty sun rising.

You have been in much contemplation of self lately and this can get a little incestuous. It allows your focus to hone in on what needs attending to, but too much self-focus can get boring and a little too conceited, especially if you are around others who cannot look up beyond their own feet either. What kind of companion is that who does not look upon the horizon and see that, indeed, time has passed, things have changed, and a new hope is on the brink of emerging to offer new energy?

Your times of self-contemplation, self-discovery, recapitulation, and internalizing must continue at all costs, but seek now a new balance. Reassert your self. Reposition your self. Realign your self now, by bringing your eyes up to focus on the measured stability of the horizon.

Your inner life must be maintained, but I suggest that you wake up a little more each day to what is going on outside of you. For in so doing will you have access to the signs and synchronicities that are available to you. Remain too deeply in your inner work, and you will miss what is being presented to you.

I find that those of you who ask for help and for signs that you are on the right path often do not see what is being offered to you, or you misinterpret, based not on evolutionary ideas, but because you remain stuck in an old world. You must keep up with a changing world by re-seeing it now in a different manner.

Do not simply look up and see the same world today. But look up and see it with different eyes, based on all the hard work you have done and all the things you have learned as you have progressed. See the world differently and in so doing open your self to the absolute possibility of hopefulness for the future.

Allow the future to begin today by disregarding your old ideas of life, of your own life, and of the world around you as you have thus far perceived it, observed it, and thought about it. Notice your comments, your ideas, your constructs, and turn them upside down. As you gaze upon the horizon, observe that you have never really noticed the world around you before. Everything is not as you thought! Everything is different now because you must make the point to perceive it differently. You must make a concerted effort to actively participate in a changing world by first changing your view of it.

With this energetic shift in perception will you be in complete control of acquiescing to your journey. I know that many of you have a hard time understanding what I mean by acquiescing. It is not an easy thing to do, you say. But I say, you have no choice in the matter, except to choose to be alive. If you are alive, you do in fact acquiesce every day to your life as it is played out step by step. But if you want to be in control, then I suggest that you acquiesce to your journey by perceiving it differently.

If you look at your world and see the same old humdrum world that you are so bored with, so complacently going along with, so are you not at all in control. You are simply an automaton; robotically moving in a stagnant scene you call your life. But if you look at your world and recreate it, so that things are different, beginning with your very body, so will you begin to participate in acquiescing to your journey.

Look at your body and dismiss your usual mantras regarding this physical self. Change them to something else. Instead of negative ramblings, select energetically positive sayings such as:

I am an energetic being who inhabits this amazing construction that is my body.
I energetically choose to participate in becoming aware.
I intend awareness of self as I energetically move in this world.
As I move, I shift the air before me. I push it away.
I am in control of the air around me by my very presence in this world.
I cause shift, simply by being.
I cause shift, simply by moving.
I cause energetic ripples,
repercussions that flow outward from my physical energy body,
right out to the far horizon.
I think about my body as an energetic force.
I am energy.

You see! You can immediately feel differently by becoming energy. And by becoming energy, and perceiving everything else as energy, so do you now acquiesce to an energetic journey. If you can keep this idea of being energy in your thoughts and actions today, so can you release your self from the old world and create a new world. I would advise this as good evolutionary activity. It will help you all, as your world changes and tumbles upside down.

If you look for it to be what it once was, you will not be able to get back on your feet. You will be completely disoriented and immobilized because your old horizon will not exist any longer. But if you can begin to accept your energetic qualities and components of self as energy, so can you not only survive the tumbling down of your world as you know it, but you will land lightly upon your feet in the new world. It will become clear that you must shift your perceptions to energy in order to not only survive, but evolve. Everything is energy!

#381 The Dark Serpent of Change Tangles with the White Serpent of Transformation

Dear Jeanne,
Today we start a new week. The intense energy of last week appears to have died down. What can we look forward to this week?

My Dear Readers, do not get fooled by appearances. While the intensity is toned down do not risk taking your eyes off the situations that remain brewing. Even a temporary respite leaves doors open for the wrong kind of energy to enter and wreak havoc. The Dark Side does show its face now as this time of seeming lull does attend upon your time frame. Vigilance and alertness are still called for My Dears, and your cognitive abilities are even more necessary now, as trickery is in the minds of those in power and those who seek power.

This trickery may not even be uppermost in the calculations of risks proposed, but (and this is a big but) they must consider all angles, and no angle is without its possibilities. Even the most negative and direst of possibilities will pass muster now, as the culmination of opposite powers does its dark work behind closed doors.

You seek truth. You seek purity and innocence. You strive for this in your own life and this is where you must remain focused. Do not look for those in political favor to be as innocent and truth seeking as you who do your recapitulation work so diligently are. This is a time of compromise for many who otherwise would ride the white horse of change through the veils of deception, enlightening you all. But the veils are being pulled tighter and tighter now, and your very truths are being locked and clamped down by those who seek more power over your world, your country, and even your very body and soul.

Are you speaking of the American political scene right now? And even the repercussions on the world stage?

I speak dually of the politics-as-usual playing out in America. One side speaks and seeks truth, but the other responds by digging deeper trenches around its coffers, seeking not exposure of how high its treasures loom into the night sky, or how valuable they consider their deceptively acquired gold. The coin is golden on one side, a treasure, but flip it over and it is but a dark hole that sucks into its depths the unsuspecting, hearing its tricky, confusing rhetoric that seeks to utterly fascinate with its deceptive thinking. Although this energy plays out now upon the world stage, deeply embedded in the internal affairs of America, so is this dark side interested in each and every one of you. For once it perceives weakness, and attention placed on the possibility of change based on its ideas, so does it perceive the greater possibility of roping you in, tying you down to it ideals, and then it will have you for its own purposes of perpetuating its greed.

Do not fall for this dark energy that tricks and twists the truth and presents a shiny picture that, in truth, is full of dark holes lightly covered over with a false veneer. Do not trust what is thrust before you as “the salvation.” Do not listen to the lies that even the good people among you are forced to concede to. This time of destruction will continue unabated now, for yet a time to come. The next few weeks may appear to be energetically calm, but beneath the surface the dark serpent of change does tangle with the white serpent of transformation.

This scenario is also going to be going on inside each of you. You may find your selves drawn back to people in your pasts who have meant much to you. You may find your selves caught in conversations that do not resolve, that do not accomplish what you know must be accomplished. You may be squabbling endlessly in messy confrontations with no point, no resolution, and really no heart as the basis. You may discover that your truths are constantly being revealed, yet are you unable to maintain awareness of them. You may also find that appearances, at first seemingly right and safe and good, soon slip into less appealing and undesirable patinas that you would rather no longer encounter.

To find the silver lining in all of this doom and gloom is to remain connected to inner self. This is what must be maintained and nurtured now, in order to keep a handle on the truth of reality. The true connection to innocent self, in order to be held in your awareness, must be properly, and with concerted effort, placed in your face, right before your eyes. Keep your eyes focused on this inner truth of self at all times.

If you must play in the projective field, which is also very active now, so do I ask that you consider that all projections are self studies, being presented for your growth. In order to really work this time must you see your self out there in the world, doing all those things you find so appalling, so disgraceful, so ugly, so disingenuous and dishonest. Place your self upon the faces of others and look for the quality being so boldly displayed and ask: “Where is that quality in me?” In this manner will your time in dark deception be well used, your ability to maneuver through this mess well managed, and your time well spent on growth.

Turn now from wanting, from even a hint of greed. There is enough of that already negatively impacting the energy. Turn inward where light and innocence seek your attention, cleaned and scrubbed clear of the sticky oil of deception that now seeks control in your outside world. Once that oil is smeared upon the truth, will it be difficult to clean it off and once again see the true picture.

Your good leaders are in battle now with those whose hands are sticky with that oil. Their clean hands take on dark smears at every handshake at the end of every deal now being made. The good ones seek to wipe it off, but it does not easily remove before the next deal is struck and the next oily hand extended. Watch out now as presentations of compromises are presented. Do not trust the outcomes, but keep in your hearts the truths that the good ones seek also to hold in their hearts.

Maintain now an energy of good. Allow the white serpent inside you to hold onto its purity for the right reasons, even as it must go to battle with the oily dark serpent inside you, each confronting the conflicts and controversies that now will rise up during this dark time of change that is upon your world.

Maintain your inner lights now, My Dear Ones. Your seeking self will not let you down. Your truth seeking politicians will not let you down either. Let them proceed with the deals being made, but await further truths being revealed at a later date that will expose the utter truths not now ready for your ears and eyes. Prepare your self for the bright light to come. It may be blinding after all this darkness, but if you have been preparing, by staying in your own light, so will you be able to handle it.

Truths are now difficult to see and hold onto; that is the truth of these next few weeks. But maintaining awareness of good, of honesty, and of desire for innocence to become known are the sparks that must guide you all now. Use your handhold on these inner truths to light your way. Keep your hands in front of you, pulling aside the veils, dark and numerous though they may be.

Chuck Ketchel, LCSWR
