#281 Rock of Awareness

Dear Jeanne,
Can you give us some guidance today?

Look forward now, not only to the change of season, but the new winds of energetic change as well. For now is the time of change and shift about to take place in a most notable fashion, for all to see and benefit from. Awareness must come into play now, and become your beacon, your light, and the place of focused return when you wander off on adventures upon that planet. Remind your self often to return to awareness. By doing so will you gain in understanding, in concentrated efforts, but mostly will your awareness offer you the seeds to truly trusting the gifts you are given.

This is a time of gifts, but the gifts that arrive, borne on such winds of change, may not be clearly understood. This is a time of complicated, yet complementary change. It will aid you greatly, this shift, subtle and unclear though it may be. Seek always a return to your own awareness, your current understanding of the self, with its familiar feel and clarity, but do not intend to stay there. Use your current awareness of the self as an anchor, a rock upon which you rest as you take adventures out into the waters of life, swimming forth to your resonant adventures, then back again to rest upon your rock of awareness. Trust this process, for it will aid you as you continue to grow, but still maintain awareness of your anchor. This will also aid you in remaining in balance, a foot in two worlds, so to speak.

This is a time of adventure, new growth, new opportunity, and the blossoming of new awareness. Do not waste this offering that is being presented, but dare the self to take advantage of the energy that comes to assist you in your work on the self. Watch the world around you begin to wake from its long winter slumber, and be guided by its show of unequal ability to regenerate, and live a new life, energetically rekindled, and freshly aware of all that is offered, as it soaks in the gifts that allow for growth.

This example is keenly presented each spring for all to see, and though it does spur a sense of wonder and awe at the profusion of energetic growth so does man often forget that he is but as simple an aspect of nature as the small weed upon the ground. Does that weed accept its gifts? Why yes, it does so, easily and readily, taking what nature offers, without doubt, or fear, or contemplation, but with full awareness that it is necessary. Man however often steps over what is freely offered, and thinks he can invent something far greater than what nature offers. Yet is there nothing grander! For everything that man attempts is but already found in the minutest molecules and particles, already present. To understand this is man’s greatest challenge, to allow nature to offer what it knows, to allow himself to trust that this is all that is necessary for life, and growth, evolutionary growth.

I do not mean that man should not continue to invent, or to test what he dreams about, but I do contend that he will find everything already present, though to truly see what lies before his eyes takes great awareness. To understand what truly matters in life also take great awareness, and this is the intent of these messages, to point out, again and again, what truly matters, what is to be trusted, noticed, utilized, and gained by living life upon that Earth.

So now, during this time of shift, and change, and growth, take the opportunity to feel the energy of this yearly event, this yearly awakening, and utilize the energy for your own growth of awareness. You too have the same energy that exists in nature inside your corpus humanus, vibrating, alive, and wishing to be recognized for what it truly is. It is energy! Don’t doubt it, and you will already have anchored your self to the perfect rock of awareness.

Swim out now into the sea of awareness, and see what else you can discover as you continue your adventure, taking advantage of all that is offered in nature as your guide. Oh, and pose this question to your self: What has happened to nature, now that man has invented so many things that do not abide by The Rules of Life and Change and Awareness. A shift to nature is more than necessary, or nature will be the one to shift mankind, in order to wake him up. Help the process in whatever way you think is appropriate, but have no doubt that an awakening is well underway. Be a part of it in the right way. Stick with nature. That’s my advice!

NOTE: Once again Jeanne refers to the 10 Rules of Life and the 10 Steps of Change, which I’ve already posted in the sidebar under Guidance. In 2005, I channeled A Guide to Awareness, which I know some of you have and which I intend to post on the website when I get a chance. This may be what she is referring to in today’s message as well. But I think she is just pointing out that we should be aware in general terms. Also as I am typing this up today the wind is howling around our house on the hill, and a bird has gotten caught in the vent pipe in the bathroom. I hear it struggling, and can just barely make out a wing when I look up through the fanlight. This happened once before, and when we tried to free it the bird flew back up the pipe and freed itself, so I am inclined to let it struggle and figure it out on its own. I guess the message is that the winds of change are indeed upon us, and we all have to figure out how to get out of that hole we are stuck in. So Good Luck, to all of you!


#280 Allow Your Own Inner Spirit to Speak Up With the First Truth

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message I can pass along to your readers to begin a new week?

Yes. I continue to request that practicality, in all matters, be the focus. Address your issues with pragmatism, and focus on getting the job done. For in the long run, is that the only means by which to truly evolve. Do you wish to remain stuck any longer? It takes effort on your part to execute The New Rules of Life and Change that I have been expressing. These rules of behavior and truth do not happen without your participation and energetic concentration. It is not easy to be a human being, but neither is it easy to be a spirit being. You have a choice though. Do you choose to remain a human being, or do you choose to fully embrace the other aspect of who you are, your energy side, and develop that?

It is not so unusual, that in spite of all that your spirit side offers, that many choose to remain human for many lifetimes more than is really necessary. To truly evolve beyond that Earth, and that encasement of human form, is the highest goal of all spirit energy forms. You are all comprised of spirit energy, and all have the potential to evolve into a very different kind of life, even while still present there, upon that Earth. Yet does it take considerable work in order to achieve such energy change. But first of all does it involve you challenging your self to accept the possibility that you can change, and then you must place your intent firmly upon such a path. A path of growth and focus on reaching spiritual awareness is available to each and every one of you.

Look outside of you for the signs and the help that is so readily available for you to begin to change. Trust that what is presented will not fail you, but continually lead you to your next lesson, but also your next sign of aid. Do not be discouraged, but remain always alert to what will come next to guide you on your way. For something will always appear to point you in the next direction, and offer you what you need.

If you are doing the work, I urge and encourage you to continue to stay the course. What is your next task? Whatever it is, trust that you will accomplish it because you are fully capable, and because all the help in the world is energetically available to you. If you are hemming and hawing about your big leap into truly doing the work on the self, maybe it is time to look at the aspect of the self that is holding you back. Is it fear? Is it the big baby? Is it the ego? Is it the past that holds you captive? Is it the untruths spoken by others that cannot release you? Is it underlying untruths that hold you captive? Now is the time, My Dears, to be brave and allow your self to experiment with the energy that is available for evolutionary growth and understanding.

So today, as you begin a new week, do I continue to push you to remain focused on your path. Allow your energy to guide you. Allow your own inner spirit to speak up with the first truth that must be addressed in order to pop you out of the hole you have stumbled into. Until you get your self out of that pothole, will you have some trouble with getting further along in your areas of growth and evolution. Look at all the possibilities before you, all the advantages, and all the most amazing experiences that you have yet to partake in. If you can only hoist your self up, and out of that place you have inhabited now for a little too long, then everything will change, as it should.

I offer a hand to you today, to all of you; to those I know, and those I don’t know. For I do know your energy, your spirit, and your evolutionary desire. It is not that far away from your grasp you know, neither my hand, nor your spirit. Just reach out, and offer your self the next step, the next shift, the next change, and you will get there. You will find my hand right there waiting for yours. And you’ll feel the warmth, and calm of my energy as we connect. Come on, I’m waiting.

NOTE: Once again, Jeanne points out The 10 Rules of Life and 10 Steps of Change that are in the sidebar on this channeling page under Guidance.

#279 Stay Within the Realm of Self

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a Friday message for us as we go into the weekend?

Continue to discover your own energetic composition. Hone in on the feel of it, the vibration of it. Different from your outer self in the world, this energetic self inhabits your inner world, and is quiet, soft spoken, and pragmatic. It speaks in terms of knowing, rightness, and truth. It plays no games, nor does it tease, or lead you astray. It speaks only with awareness.

This is the aspect of the self to continue cultivating, listening for, and digging ever deeper for. This is the self who seeks your acceptance, your acknowledgment, your trust, and your appreciation. This inner self waits quietly, yet does it send you messages of awakening constantly. In your slumber do you hear its truths being spoken, yet in your dreaming state do you often fail to act upon its words of rightness.

In your slumber do you hear and take in all your truths, yet do you often disregard them when the time comes for them to be most meaningful and helpful. Often do you choose to disregard them if they clearly return at a most opportune time that does not suit your ego’s desires and wants. The ego self is your biggest foe. Do not blame others for the desires of your own ego, nor fault them for what you too have insatiable hunger for. Do not look outward when everything you need for evolution is inside you.

Continue your inner work, that directive is never going to change, for my messages do encourage and focus on this. Stay within the realm of self even as the energy rolls now into a new phase of discomfort, for it is time now for a new shift. Find your firmness upon your path. Travel it with pointed conviction, focused intent, yet do not despise the self for faltering, nor find the self at fault. If your intent is interrupted, disrupted, thwarted, do not blame the self or others, but simply acknowledge that it is so, and bring your self back again, with mature sobriety, to your path.

Find within the deep-seated ability to love, and warm this love, cupped in your own hands, so that it may feel nurtured and prepared for the journey ahead. This love must you learn to use for the self now, placing it tenderly in your heart center, breathing life into it, and allowing it to be nurtured and protected for the new phase you are preparing for. This new phase is the continued journey of the self, the inner self, perhaps so distant, barely a shadowy figure on the horizon of your unconscious. Or perhaps the inner self is very well known to you, a familiar figure, a voice heard often. Awaken now to the fact that this inner self has a voice of awareness, and a glowing heart full of love meant for you. This glowing heart contains all the energetic connections you will need for your journey ahead, with filaments of energy that extend beyond you, reaching into the universe, where reciprocal energy awaits reception.

Focus on this heart-centered inner loving self this weekend. Bring this self forward now, gently and tenderly, to partake more fully in your life and your world. Urge this self forward to join you. Ease that ego over a little on the seat of your vehicle, making room for this warm aspect of the inner self to sit beside you and help you steer. Place your hand in its hand, and together now drive onward, with truth on your tongue, awareness in your heart, and love for the self seeping in to your environment.

Abide by The Rules of Life and Change. Breathe your Heart-centered Breath. Allow the inner self to meet the outer self, for close companionship on your journey that is totally resonant and right. Act from this place, this joined self, maintaining balance and truth. Find your way with all that you have now before you. But keep your eyes open for what comes next. You never know what it might be, but if you keep your eyes open, and your awareness keen, you won’t miss it. Opportunity awaits; don’t miss it, My Dears, for it seeks to aid you, and bring you further along on your journey.

NOTE: When Jeanne says: “Abide by The Rules of Life and Change. Breathe your Heart-centered Breath,” she is referring to previous messages. Excerpts regarding these elements are in the sidebar on this channeling page under Guidance.

#278 Know Always That Wholeness Awaits

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have guidance to offer us today?

Remind your self that underlying everything is there purpose. There is purpose for your life, your situation, your predicament, and there is reason for all that you encounter. Know that as you follow your path, as you learn awareness, and begin to trust that your life is as it should be, so will the underlying truths be revealed. You will see that everything will work out, as it should. You will see that one thing has led to another, and then to another. You will see that you are where you are because you need to be there.

As you trust your journey, so will you discover that life holds no secrets, but instead constantly reveals everything to you, but your awareness does not catch all the signs that are presented. Accept your place in life, where you are now, who you are now. Begin a new process of total awareness that you are so right for now. This is who you should be. This is where you should be. But most of all, accept that this life is necessary; and with these insights begin to allow your self to make your journey now with greater acceptance.

As you accept your self and your place in life, allow your self to also accept the fact that this is what you need now in order to complete your life, in order to evolve. So, once again, I challenge you. Do you want to fight it, strain against every aspect of your life, every nuance that appears to lead you on your proper path, making your journey one of struggle and constant conflict? Or do you choose to accept and flow, with the knowledge, always inside you, that all will be as it shall be, and that this journey is utterly meaningful?

Are you sad today? Why? Feel your sadness. Find out why you hold it inside you. Investigate it thoroughly, but even so keep in mind that it is probably necessary to have that sadness. Even if it is related to the big baby self, or the ego self, so must you investigate, to understand the truth of it. Once you have discovered its truth, then allow your self to release it, to understand where it is attempting to lead you next; and then allow your self to accept the fact that it is just one more step on your journey to wholeness.

Know always that wholeness awaits. Know that conclusion awaits; that fulfillment and life completion await. Know at all times, that every step is leading you to the truths that you must encounter. Every step, every incident in your life is meaningful, meant to urge you on your journey. Though you may be greatly challenged, keep in mind that the greatest challenges are also your greatest gifts. This is what you must retain as you encounter your daily life upon that planet: that what you are presented with is offering you growth and evolution.

You all have the potential to take a journey of awareness, with conscious alertness, and with knowing of purpose. Everything will be fine, My Dears. Trust me. It always is, it always will be and most of all, it always works out for the best. Flow with what life presents, but flow with active participation and you will do very well. See what this day holds that will send you on a new aspect of your travels through life.

Maintain your calm; your balance; your steadiness; straddling two worlds, each one equally real, and equally full of gifts that are equally necessary for your growth. Keep evolving! I love you all!

#277 Live and Learn

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message today?

Do not pause in your efforts to grow, evolve, and continuously change. Life needs and desires change, for without it would there be no life, no rejuvenation, no forward movement, but only stagnancy that would soon die down into lifeless hopelessness and boredom. Without change is there little opportunity to shift, and to achieve experiences that are meaningfully necessary but best of all, enlightening.

Live and learn, as they say. That is actually a very good mantra to use as a reminder that life is meant for learning, with the result that as you learn, so will you grow, change, and eventually evolve, with clear awareness of the meaning of life and the universe. Use your energy for change. Use that energy that we have discussed now, for certain and lasting change in your own life. Even if you have not achieved an understanding of what it means to be energy, so allow your self to perceive your self as energy. If you shift your thoughts away from thinking of your self in old terms, such as gender, weight, looks, and dispense with old judgments about the self, so can you free your mind, releasing it just enough to take on an energy perception. Think instead of human weight, and tensile feel of skin, and bones, and shape of your self, as pure energy.

I am wind. I am water. I am night. I am day. I am energy. I am sunlight. I am fire. I am but the essence of thought, and the breath of life. I am energy.

Take away your head. Take away your body. Take away your old perceptions of the self. Be energy. Allow your self to feel only energy, only molecules vibrating into a shape that is you. And look at another person in your life and imagine them as pure energy too.

Even if you cannot conceive of this, or get your self to a place of total acceptance of this idea, so do I request that you begin to allow it to play around in your head, a new idea that, by its very presence, may get you thinking in a new way, and eventually will you be able to free your self into energy thinking.

Allow your self to live and learn about life differently now. Allow your self to find solace in the fact that everything is energy. In this manner may you find lightness of heart and temperament, and this alone may aid you in shift and change.

I do not encourage more, for this day, than continuous exploration with perceptions of energy, thoughts of energy, and experimentation with your own energy. And please, have fun doing it! You will be opening many doors to healing practices, energy practices, and evolutionary practices.
