A Note on Message #62

A Note to all the readers of Jeanne’s messages: I will be energetically unavailable for the next few days. Jeanne is giving us plenty to be aware of while I am away! I will return with a message on Tuesday May 9, 2007. All the best to you, Jan

#62 Take Off the Blindfold

Dear Jeanne,
I feel your energy very intensely today. I know you desire to continue guiding us and offering your knowledge. What message do you have today?

Acquaint yourselves with the signs that are guiding you during this time of energetic force. Accustom yourself to becoming alert and aware and keenly focused on reading the guidance offered. I am not kidding when I say that there are many, many things being offered to those of you who reside upon that earth. Many hands aid you, offering guidance and direction, and even pulling you up out of despair or predicaments you may find yourself in. But, few take note, and few are aware that this offer exists.

Begin to study in your own life what has recently been made available to you. Begin to accept that all that you are given is meant for you to experience and learn from. Guidance abounds, but it is up to you to notice, and then to dare to accept it, and take advantage of what is offered to guide you on your path. A fork in the road, a path splitting, is an opportunity for growth and change and a necessary aspect of life. A journey would not be fulfilling if there were not plenty of decisions to be made and plenty of uncertainties to face.

Do not blindfold yourself any longer as you walk your path. Take off the blindfold that keeps you hidden from the reality of your life on earth and from the reality of gifts of guidance being presented to you. Your abilities now must become awareness focused so that you will be able to center yourself in this new life you so desire. Use your awareness to get you there. Use your knowledge of other realities, co-existing with earth time, to aid you as you go. Do not run, covering your eyes, from the knowledge that is offered, but instead open your eyes, and gaze upon it as upon a gift, and take this gift for your own.

Your life is meant to be growth-oriented, your path, your journey interesting, challenging, and always open so that you may travel forward and grow from your experiences. So, center yourself now upon that path, stop a moment and look around you. Take in your reality, see clearly where you are, right now, at this moment, and then decide what you must do to be in the right place in the next moment. Pause and remain focused on your spirit when you take in your surroundings, not your ego or your desires or your wants, but your spirit.

Who are you really? What is it that you must truly do with your life? Are you on the right path? Are you spirit-oriented now? Are you aware that life will not allow you to hide or remain blind? Life and the universe will attempt to show you what you need to know. But, it is up to you to see clearly, accept it, and go with it. Life will not cease to challenge you, at times in big meaningful ways, and at other times in small significant ways. Always is there guidance available.

Even this new clarity and this new awareness I speak of can often seem like a dream world. As you gain your awareness so do you gain awareness of parallel worlds and of your ability to exist in more than one at a time. Begin to enjoy this phenomenon. Your ability to seamlessly transfer your attention, your awareness, from one world to the other will strengthen as you practice. Your ability to flow will gather strength, and your ability to enjoy both worlds more fully will ensue.

Do not be frightened by this aspect of reality. As you feel yourself enter another world, another sense of reality, perhaps in meditation or perhaps in being out in the world, notice the feeling of it and stay there to enjoy it. Bring aspects of it back with you into your other world so that they begin to merge and you will find that your realities are more smoothly blended and your crossovers less drastic.

Eventually, will your realities be better blended, and your awareness will be alert in both worlds. Your life will begin to change as you realize that your spirit-oriented world of magic and guidance is in fact present all the time. Your reality is in fact spirit-oriented at all times. When you arrive at this knowing will you have come far on your journey of spirit, knowing that you took the right path, the right fork in the road.

As your blindness dissolves and your seeing increases, look forward to clarity that you can use to guide you through this time of intensity with the energy of the earth pulling and pushing and grabbing and trying to entice you to join it at all costs. But, you know now that this is not a good idea any longer. Now you stay in your center, in your calm, and observe this energy and the impact it has, but you stay strongly spirit focused and spirit driven. Your mature spirit has contained within it the responsibility for nurturing you on this journey into new life, and your mature spirit seeks to guide you correctly. So pay attention to it!

Do not do anything foolhardy. Do not do things the old way. Do not jump ahead without finding the truth first, whether or not that jump you want to take is right for you. It may be, but now must you make it with conscious spirit clarity, staying always focused on seeking your resonance and your spirit knowing. This is your new guide, your new decision maker, and the new you who will move now more swiftly into awareness of your own parallel worlds and your own realities, learning to flow with your life, taking the path of spirit.

All of this is good, but I request that you maintain your center over the next few days as the energy attempts to override your calm. Do not be tempted by it. It’s the wrong time to engage it, for it is not spirit focused, but of the opposite sort, seeking to distract and catch you off guard. Stay focused!

“I am flowing in my life, I am remaining centered, I am aware, I am knowing and seeing clearly now.” These are the proper words to speak now to remain centered and guided. Good luck in your endeavors. Let’s see what happens next. Don’t be surprised by anything. Just remain centered and say, “Oh, okay, so that’s how it’s going to go, okay, I can handle that.” And then flow with your life rather than fight it, for it is leading you properly, this I can guarantee! But, only if you remain calmly spirit centered and focused, otherwise you may screw it up! I dare you to take off your blindfold and take up the challenge I offer to be alert, aware, and spirit focused!

#61 Keep a Warm Blaze Going

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for humanity today?

Do not get caught now by talk of energy that is not resonant with your own truth and your own inner knowing. I do not advocate getting swept up into something that will only drain you and potentially leave you depleted.

I warn that there is much out there in the world that would love to feast off your growing and vibrant energy. But at this time, and in this state of growth that you now embark on, is it most important that you maintain your energy for work on yourself. Though this may sound selfish, how can it be, when your true goal is in learning to understand how your own energy works in order to utilize it meaningfully in the manner that your life was truly meant for?

This is now a learning process that you have embarked on, and I advise that you stay focused on inner personal growth at this time. Feed your own energy being first, tend to it carefully, keep it calmly balanced and energetically self-focused. Then, if you truly have energy to spare, is it perfectly feasible to practice using it in a more universal fashion. But, you must be able to acknowledge your own limitations, set some rules so that you do not deplete, or empty too far, your own energy reserves. It is important to keep always the embers of your energy glowing, though it is far better to have quite a nice fire going at all times. If your inner fire goes cold because you have not attended to it properly will you have much work getting it started again.

Maintain your inner energy as you would tend a fire, feeding it just enough to keep a warm blaze going and you will do well stabilizing your energy. Look outside of you and decide where your energy is best utilized. There will be much wishing to draw upon you, especially as your resonance is felt more and more now. There will be a time of attraction and a time of interest in your new energetic resonance, but it also a time to sit back and observe and contemplate as well as revel in this feeling of your own energy. Do not give it all away. This is probably the best message I can give to you today. Do not give it all away. Feed continually the fire of your own energy. Keep it growing, and as you select how you will utilize it, keep always in mind that you must maintain more than enough for yourself. For what good will you be to anyone else who truly needs you, or the energetic flow of universal intent, if you do not maintain enough energy to remain functioning at a good energy level yourself. Do not run out of fuel.

So, focus on the self in this manner is important. Watch what comes at you now to draw on your new energy awareness. You may find that, as you are more aware of your energy now, as a separate aspect of your self, so will there be feasters who are also aware of this. Begin to recognize who and what they are, and learn to be protective of your vibrant energy. It will attract the right kind of resonant energy, but it will also attract the wrong kind. You do not want, or wish, to become but a feeding ground, rather than an ever-growing and glowing energy source that you alone control and understand perfectly.

Deflect that which is inappropriate, merely energy-draining attraction. Keep cognizant of how you are using your energy and how you can improve on using it. Yes, your energy resides in your physical body, and your body awareness is your biggest indicator of how you use your energy. Your body will often tell you, enough! But, sometimes your energy body will function completely outside of the physical body and you may not even realize what is happening until it is too late and your energy is gobbled up. So, stay cognizant of both your physical and your separate energy being. Keep them in alignment during your busy working day; replenish them both. Keep them in good condition, remaining aware of how you are choosing to spend your energy, and your physical energy too. Awareness of the self is key to how you will later function as a spirit entity. Awareness of understanding your energy and your spirit being now is extremely important for future growth.

So today, be aware of outside energy seeking to connect and possibly drain you of the energy you are discovering and feeling so intensely within yourself now. Retain it, don’t let it go, it’s far too soon for that. You must remain focused on studying it, how it works, what it is capable of, and how you alone experience it before you should allow it to be utilized by others. Be protective of it. After all, it is like a baby growing inside you, and you are just getting to know the feel of it, nurturing it, and growing it, while you understand the greater meaning of it. It is life inside you, your very own life, and your very own infant energy. Be careful with it!

Life upon that earth is going to get very interesting. See what happens. Stay energy focused, caring of the self, and cognizant of your place in the world now as you go innerly and become spirit focused, and a tender of your own energetic fuel, keeping your own fire kindled and glowing. Keep this inner balance going, even as you deal with life and all the issues that arise and, of course, must be met and dealt with. Never shirk your responsibilities in life, but do learn this new balance now too.

#60 Know Your Spirit

Dear Jeanne,
You’ve been focusing on helping us understand how to make correct decisions, challenging us to remain spirit-guided. What guidance do you have for us now?

Recognizing your own true spirit comes easily as you relinquish your hold on old ideas, old teachings, and old habits. In order to connect with your spirit consciousness must you first strip the self of all outwardly imposed ideas of spirit. Spirit exists inside you; it is unique and as individual as you are. No one else can hold or contain it, no one else can, or deserves, to guide it properly, except you. Do not give your spirit to anyone to hold, or to nurture, or to feed, for how could another truly know you and your spirit? Yes, guidance is available, and in many ways, but at all times are you responsible, for your spirit knowing what is resonant and what is not. Even in, and especially in, this interaction with me. Beware of cults, and religions seeking your energy for self-gratification or for the possibility of holding you to tenets that require you to give your spirit, and your ability to deeply know and explore your own spirit, to another.

Spirit consciousness must always stay individually oriented and focused. You are allowed to have strong inner spirit. You are allowed to trust your own inner spirit above all else, for this is the only thing that will lead you to truth, to truth of the self, truth of pure spirit, and, eventually, connection with the ultimate capability of your own spirit as it merges with all spirit energy. This we all seek to achieve, it is the ultimate goal of growth in infinity, to continually be guided by spirit and seeking connection with true and pure spirit energy.

Do you mean God?

Many call it God. Man on earth calls it God, but infinite energy is the culmination of all pure energy that is good, and resonant, and seeking continued cleansing and purifying, carrying with it knowledge of how to achieve this in a process of learning, much as you are now undergoing. It requires trusting of the spirit in each of us, testing and proving that we are on the right path, knowing intuitively that we must do what we are doing because it is the right thing to do, the perfect path for our spirit energy to take.

I do not wish to scare or take away from anyone their beliefs or their comforts regarding their spiritual path. All paths are valid if your spirit truly resonates and hums in the recognition of knowing that such a path is truly correct. But, I do urge all to seek always their individual, and often deeply hidden, inner spirit in order to truly feel and know resonance.

This resonance may respond to the world outside of you in many different ways. It may seek further inner life, growing exponentially in a richly rewarding manner that only you will have access to and enjoy. That is perfectly fine and dandy, for it is for you alone to learn about and to evolve with. Some spirits may feel resonance outwardly, desiring change in the world, seeking outwardly to assign energy to causes or tasks that resonate with that individual spirit type. Many will have a combination of both, of true inner awareness that resonates outward, in a balance that aids both the inner resonance and the outer resonant cause. All of these examples and aspects of spirit resonance are equally valid and meaningful.

But, I urge all who are as yet uncertain of resonance outwardly to stay innerly focused for the time being, quietly and calmly centering on the inner spirit, learning about it, seeking to fully know it and find it in its fullness. This is not a selfish act, but a truly selfless act, for in the long run will your discovery of your inner spirit more fully allow your wholeness to merge and your outer self to grow from this experience. The merging of your inner and outer self is the first goal. Then, as you experience this merging and understand it can you allow a role reversal to take place. When this happens your spirit self will become as your outer self and now become your guide, your exposed self, and extremely capable of recognizing resonance.

At this point will you begin to understand what I mean when I speak of energy, of spirit energy. As you feel your own grow, will you find that the idea of true pure energy is not so far-fetched, and your idea of God may switch from being man-focused to being pure energy-focused. This is what all spirits seek, you know, to be connected to that purity. But, as the word infinity implies, is it infinite, and the possibility for continued growth and purity always exists. Our spirit energy is ever existing, always has, always will. We have all had many adventures in our pasts, and many in our futures, all based on our energetic beingness.

But, perhaps I stray too far from where we left off the last time we connected. I present these ideas so that you will have a broader picture of what energy is, and also so that you will understand that you, each person, each individual, is responsible for nurturing your own spirit by getting to know it firstly, and then by allowing it to guide you with its resonance, becoming as the beacon of light I have mentioned before, a light searching and searching for true resonance and then shining its beam where it finds it. In that beam of light will there be clarity and the ability to see and feel a reciprocal resonance that hums the same tune as your own. And here will you find growth and the possibility for change to spirit orientation.

You know already when your spirit is comfortable simply by how you feel in the wrong company and how you feel in the right company. You know the feeling of rightness of resonance. Think about your life for a moment, span its past and note where your spirit has truly felt resonance. What moments stick out the most? Why were these significant, even if they were only brief? Even brief glimpses of resonance teach us something, and longer ones may show us a process of growth that we may not have acknowledged before.

Do you energetically flow in spirit orientation in certain situations, and in others do you feel friction in your spirit center? Where do you wish to be, in resonance or friction? These are the signs that are pointing you properly and allowing you glimpses into understanding how your resonance works. You will feel resonance. Your entire spirit and your physical body will both feel it. This is how you know you are in the right place, when your inner and your outer selves are in harmony, feeling true resonance with that decision, that person, that place, that institution that you are wondering about.

So, your decisions must resonate. As you feel resonance must you most likely also feel an emotional response, perhaps calm certainty, perhaps excitement, full of knowing that yes, this is so right. Be aware of small disagreements with your spirit that are warning you that total resonance does not exist. If you hear a warning, pay attention! Even the tiniest warning should not be ignored. However, that is your choice. Many warnings have been disregarded and journeys taken, that in the long run have been necessary. I’m sure all of you have such experience as this.

Remember always that your greatest asset and your greatest tool is your free choice. Never relinquish this to another. Never become bound by doctrine or laws that take away your freedom of choice and free will. Even in the most dire of circumstances is there a choice, do not ever think you do not have this option. Your spirit would never desert you, but you might desert your spirit. Remain always cognizant of this spirit option and listen to its guidance at all times, no matter what condition you have gotten yourself into or life has stranded you in. Your spirit will survive and you will too, for your spirit is eternal.

I feel I am touching on too many topics today, but it is important for you to fully understand what spirit energy is, how it functions, and how it requires your individual participation in the process of evolution. For how can your personal energy, your own spirit become active if you do not pay attention to it, learn to recognize it and nurture it? Nurture your spirit energy, understand how it speaks to you, and do not disregard its truths as they come to you, and you will do well on this journey you are now on.

I hope this is helpful in the next stage of your life. May you find what you need, may your awareness continually guide you, and your resonance lead you properly along your true path. You are all doing well, my fine friends. Au revoir!

#59 The Reality of Your Challenge

Dear Jeanne,
We are all certainly feeling both the energy you speak of and the challenges that this energy presents. It feels like we have many decisions to make, whether intensely personal, or coming from outside us. What guidance can you offer us today as we struggle to find our way and gain clarity?

As always, I stress beginning your day in harmony, in your calm and centered balance. From this place of humming inner harmony, in tune with your own intent, will you have a stable and certain ground from which to allow your day to spring. From this calm stability will your awareness be more readily present and available. If calmness cannot be maintained, then I advise that you work on that aspect of the self, until you have mastered it, for it is to be utilized constantly as you go about your day. Remind yourself often to go into your calm, go into your balance, and react to your world only from this center.

That is your first challenge if you are to interact properly with the vibrant energy that now flows upon that earth. Once this calm inner balance is stable and maintainable, then will you be ready to tackle your other issues and challenges. But, the ability to continually focus inward, and remove the tension from your physical and mental being through inner calm, will allow you to more clearly see and resolve those outside challenges that present themselves to you.

Learn to use the energy that is now available to you from this place of calm. Your challenges will become seen as just the next step on your journey and, as I spoke of the other day, take them as challenges to yourself to also test and utilize the new abilities and techniques you have been learning under my guidance. I have been offering you many practical and useful techniques that you can utilize in your daily reality. Now, as your challenges present themselves, are you being urged to begin practicing them.

The first step is always center in your calmness, before you do anything else. Then, look around you from this removed place in your center, and check out the reality of your challenge. Why are you being challenged in this manner? What is the challenge trying to tell you? What are you supposed to learn from it, personally, as relates to your own journey? Is this challenge really as big as you imagine? Is your decision going to be based on the intent of your spirit? Or is your ego getting in the way, making the decision for you, and clouding your perceptions? Are you looking at a challenge that does not truly exist? Can you make it disappear simply by taking your attention off it? Have you placed that challenge there?

Many challenges are created by our egos, believing that we need something, attending to the wants of itself. Often these kinds of challenges do not need to exist, though they steal much of our energy, and we may attach to them for long periods of time, distracted from our real focus and our calm spirit intent. Most often our challenges are of this sort, placed there by old habits, by the ego desiring something that we are not truly aligned with, or by the frightened child inside that desires attention be paid to its inability to mature.

Study your challenges from your deep spirit center. Evaluate them from this inner reality and discover what they truly are, and from where they are generated. Are they important enough to spend your energy on? Are they growth-oriented challenges, or are they merely distractions? Challenge yourself to be truthful, and then take the path of spirit in order to meet your challenges, or simply dismiss them, and give your spirit back the energy you had placed on unnecessary challenges.

I have always advocated simplicity in life so that your energy may be focused on spirit intent. Simplicity will reduce complications in your life, and in return will it also reduce the challenges that are produced by overdoing and externalizing your energy. Focus on your true meaning for living. If you are spirit first and foremost, what then is your focus going to be in your life? Is it truly necessary to grow beyond what your spirit knows is perfectly reasonable and right for you to do? Are you considering expanding the possibilities in your life, offering you many new opportunities? Are you challenging yourself to take on additional concerns that, in reality, will only burden you and take away from your spirit focus?

Simplify, simplify, simplify your life and be granted the energy to remain in spirit focus and available for your own center throughout your day. When the ego quiets down, when the needy baby goes to sleep, what then do you hear, what then do you know? Your truth, your spirit, directing you to remain calm and focused on your own spirit energy, so that your life may be guided from this place of calm, rather than from the outside self in daily battle with challenges better left untouched and unengaged.

Many things to think about have been created as distraction, but how can you decipher what is a real challenge, and what is a challenge created by the distracters in your life, whether from inside the self or outside the self? Well, the answer lies within the spirit center, and as you go into your calm and your balance, and remain there in quiet, may you be granted the insight you need and desire in order to truly see and know where your true direction lies.

My greatest advice is, always, to simplify life rather than complicate it more than necessary. Keep your decisions based on spirit and you will do well. Is this good for my spirit time, my spirit energy, my spirit calm? If I elect to make this decision, will I still have time for my spirit, and will I be able to find the time for those important moments of calm with my inner self?

If your desire is to have a spirit-centered life, then must you keep this in mind as you challenge yourself. If your challenges are coming from the universe, from infinity, rather than the ego world, them must you also look at them clearly from your spirit center, and understand that life is leading you in a new direction. But, know that you have many tools now to utilize, and aid you, as you go forward, tackling your issues, and meeting your true challenges, now from your inner center.

Infinity guides you always, sometimes with great challenges, sometimes with subtle hints. Your awareness is keener now, and you are able to notice the signs in your life, and you are ready to go forward in spirit calm now. Trust your abilities, trust your knowing that everything is possible, and trust yourself as your own true guide. These things you know, for you have come far with me on this journey of the inner spirit, and you have found new direction, and new focus, as a result of learning to trust, not only my guidance, but your own inner knowing. So, do not be frightened by challenges. You know what to do.
