#140 Be Mellow Yellow

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message of guidance today?

Be mellow yellow, a color of consequence, a state of importance. Be calm and steady, feet planted, yet also be as brilliant and as focused as the golden sun upon the earth. Allow your intent to be truthful and real, of importance, and necessary for your growth. Do not pretend, nor suggest something that is not deeply significant and from the heart of you. Do not play games, either with yourself or others, but stick to your path, your plan for evolutionary growth.

Be mellow yellow in your firm balance upon that earth, but also in your firm commitment to your inner self. Why must there be such strife upon that earth? Where is the mellow calmness that does truly reside inside each of you? Where is the connection to spirit energy that is so valuable and so necessary? Seek first your own connection to your own mellow brilliance. Find your inner warmth and send it down to your feet that connect you to that earth.

Disregard pulls from outside of you that seek to disrupt your focus. Do not be distracted or drawn too far from your path, especially at this time of tremendous energetic growth. Remain firmly upon your own set path, even as you face the challenges in your life, and the challenges to your intent. If your intent is to connect to energetic spirit energy, then stay focused there. If your intent is to connect within, then stay focused there. If your intent is to give of your energy to others, then stay focused there. But remember, that no matter what you seek, do so with conscious intent, supremely balanced, truthfully real, and with mellow temper and brilliant gold inside you leading you on your way.

As always, I stress balance, and that must be your focus, no matter what the details of your life produce for you to contend with. From a balanced, mellow place will you have easier access to your own inner truths, be able to clearly observe life and lives around you, and proceed on your journey with golden yellow color of compassion guiding your way. Be faithful to your self, your journey, your duties in life. Walk your path calmly, but firmly, knowing that you have chosen with proper intent the path you now walk. And if you are not sure, then I invite you to change. That, my dears, is what life is all about, change! Shine your golden light elsewhere, and search for equally golden resonant light in return, whether it be in work, relationship, or personal growth. If your path does not suit you, then seek another, but do so with mellow steadiness, and golden compassionate decisiveness. Then do you act from your truth, your honesty, and your place of true loving. Go mellow now, and find your inner yellow light of consequence. Fix it on your inner truth, then act from there before you act from anywhere else. For that is the place to lead your life from, your calm inner knowing. Trust the truth of your inner you, and allow it to lead you where you need to go.

I too chose my path, and this is what I do now, offer guidance on a universal level, without personal connection or gain, and only with joyous, compassionate love and gratitude for the opportunity to serve you this lovely platter of spirit energy food. I invite you to continue feasting upon it, offering you sustenance to feed your soul. You can never overeat from this platter! Enjoy! Manga!

#139 Dethrone Your Unhappiness

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a word of guidance for today?

Do not allow unhappiness to rule your life or take over your personality or your cultivation of the self. Unhappiness is merely a tool, if used correctly, to aid you in your growth, but if used unwisely will merely aid in keeping you blocked and attached to your past. Do not hold this trait as king in your life. Do not place a crown upon its head and allow it to reign with unstoppable terror and with ruleless law. It does not deserve such high praise, not does it deserve such power.

Turn it to useful slavery instead. Remove the crown and make your unhappiness work for you as an investigative tool, digging into the deeper self with it to find out why you choose to wear its crown upon your head when it does you no good. Remove it, and turn it upside down now, and view it as a bowl or coffer, and pour into it all your woes of the ego self, the desires that want to rule and dominate, and leave them there upon the ground as you wander your path, wondering about your decisions and your choices to harbor such self annihilating kings upon their thrones. Dethrone your unhappiness and your doubts. Dethrone your victims and your big babies, and seat upright, in command, your spirit seeking self, who will command rightly, with tools that guide, seeking growth, normalization, and balance.

Do you wish to remain imbalanced? Do you wish to wallow in unreasonable sadness? Why? There is no growth there, only stagnancy, and such behavior does not serve you well, nor does it make your demeanor attractive to others. Unseat the old kings, the old rulers now. Overturn the thrones, defrock the perpetrators who have overtaken your kingdom, and begin to take command now from a new place of clarity, with personal growth and balanced living your first priorities. Seek a new domination of the self, allowing the spirit to reside as ruler, and your unhappiness will fall far behind you, as it finds no raiment awaiting it, or food feeding it any longer. Leave it behind as you take off the cloak of old and take on the new garments of self-discovery. Your treasures are as yet hidden, buried, yet to be uncovered and discovered.

Work your way forward now to new life. Keep focused on growth, and watch yourself day by day as you allow for change, and awareness of yourself as changing, to kick in and be your motivator rather than that old unhappiness. Replace your king and liberate your kingdom.

#138 Allow Yourself the Luxury of Detachment

Dear Jeanne,
Wise words for today?

Remain absolutely balanced and focused no matter what may arise in your life. This is a time of crisis and a time of disruption on a worldwide level, but that does not mean that your world must be disrupted or interrupted too. Turn inward, away from that energy that seeks to draw you outward and into its currents. That is not the energy of inner resonance, but the energy of distraction, and the energy of destruction. But it is not meant for your consumption. The only thing you must do during such times is to learn another aspect of the art of detachment. By this I mean, turn the example of the outer world into inner questioning. As you turn away from involvement in the calamities of the outer world, the threats, the attempts, and the precipitation of events, so must your spirit yearn for acknowledgment in order to allow for growth. Turn inward and question. Do not simply turn away from outside influences and distractions, but as you turn away and go inward question what the significance of such outside energy means in your own private life. What does such energy signify to me specifically? Why does such energy exist in my own life? What must I turn away from, and what must I investigate inside myself?

Outside energy pulls you outward and seeks to distract you from your path. But as you turn from the attraction of it, so do you create a new use of it. As it pushes at you to notice it so can you use that push to go innerly. Get it? Use it to aid you in your inner searches for clarity of the self. As you turn away and ignore the power of it, so do you aid your growth. Allow it to be utilized. Turn from that powerful and significant force, and as you do will it push against your back, nudging you, seeking your attention, but as you remain steadfast, with your outer shell against it, so does the pressure of it push you deeper into knowledge and truth of the self.

Allow this process to begin now more forcefully. Draw away from attachment outside of your inner resonance. Allow outside behaviors to drop away as you turn from them and seek newness inside, with your resonant spirit as companion. Allow yourself the luxury of detachment from that which seeks to draw you from your path. Learning this art of detachment is a life long process, but it is also a life growing, worthwhile process that, as you learn and as you practice, will aid you in your growth. Remain firmly balanced in both your worlds, firmly grounded, firmly planted, feeling the energy of the earth and the energy of you, the inner you, equally.

Do not allow the outside pulls to kick you over. Do not allow the inside pulls to tumble you away from realities of life either. Balance at all times, but detachment as well, will be your regulators if you are to remain focused on growth. Participate in learning detachment, even as you participate fully in life. Gauge your use of your own energy daily and allow the universe to guide you in the best use of it. Notice how your day works out. Look back at how you navigate today and see where you made good use of energy and where you squandered it. Where did the universe step in and seek to guide you? Did you notice? Did you pay heed, and trust? Now tomorrow, pay attention throughout your day. Notice the signs that seek to guide you? Are they right for your inner journey? Or do they seek to pull you from your spirit path?

Know fully your spirit resonance as it meets and greets energetic flow around you. Recognize what resonance means to your inner work, and you will know how best to use the energy that is made available. And if little is made available, then must you decide what that means. I would suggest that you go always inward when in doubt, rather than outward; it is, by far, the better choice.

Take daily time for contemplation, and quiet, in order to feel your own energy and the energy around you. From this quiet place, surrounded by the push, the force of outside energy, balance your inner calm, and set yourself for your day, with your inner energy as your leading guide. Then see what happens as you navigate that thrilling life you lead.

#137 Feel the Earth Beneath Your Feet

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for us all today?

Find your way slowly and steadily today, feet upon the ground in true journeying fashion as a trekker upon the ultimate earth bound journey. Feel that earth beneath your feet as it sends not only its energy upward, but as it also allows it to turn inward into itself, creating within its soils yet another world. Your own inner world is as the earth itself, energetically festering, or energetically calming. Rivulets of energy abound within, even as your presence upon that earth is noted and needed for the life you must lead now and the job you must complete. Find your steadiness both outside yourself and inside yourself. Maintain this steady balance even as your outer world and your inner world do turn upside down and inside out, and seem to merge and lose all sense of place and distinction from each other. So is it your work upon that earth to gain and regain your sense of balance at all times in order to remain firmly on your feet, able to gather the earth’s energy rightly, as it should be gathered.

Use your firm footing, your upright stance, and your head upright on your shoulders, eyes ahead, to steady you. Do not lie prostrate upon the earth, for then do you seek too much of its energy when enough will seep in through the soles of your feet. Do not overdo this energy gathering. Take only what you need to maintain your steady balance.

Do not use false aids to regain balance and remain steady upon your path. Use only the natural energy of the earth that is freely available and deeply felt in your primal connection to it. Seek what has already been given for life upon that earth to exist. Everything is available. Use it wisely.

Today is a day of proper energetic usage. Calm to your inner knowing and seek and feel the earth’s energy today as it seeks to guide and steady you. Know the truth of it as pure energy, even as you seek your own truths and your own energy. Find time to seek connection today to true energy, as it pulses beneath your feet. Allow that to feed your calm and you will do well.
