#267 Are You Ready to Flow Now?

Dear Jeanne,
Although I don’t have time to channel or post a long message today, I wondered if you have a brief note of guidance I can pass along to your readers?

My Dear Readers and Fellow Journeyers,

Stay in your place of calm. Stay in your balanced inner core no matter what swirls outside of you, or attempts to invade your determined path or space of inner knowing. Trust, and absolve your self of faults, and indecisiveness, so that now may be a significant factor in your actions, your decisions, and the way you determine to live your life. I do not recommend getting too involved in the affairs of others, but remain innerly focused, even though there is much to grab your attention. Remain contained, doing your inner work, and trusting of your journey, for it will lead you where you need to go. Are you ready to flow now?

#266 Wipe Clean the Foggy Mirror Today

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have guidance for us today?

Do not alleviate symptoms of change with old habits. Rely now on your new inner knowledge of the self to weather through this time of transition. Centering, balancing calm will ultimately prove to be your greatest asset and your most loyal attribute. Do not consider your situation hopeless, or unaccomplishable, for that would merely be feeding the big baby a great big bottle. Find now your stability in your deep inner knowing. Hear the clear voice of your mature and quietly situated self speaking the truth of your next move. Determine once again, that you are on a journey; every step is necessary. And if you are going to stay upon this journey of change, so must you be prepared to move along your path every day, with your head up, looking forward, with positive awareness of your life as meaningful, and truly necessary.

Do not allow your old habits to come knocking at your door. Determine now new methods and new means of living your life. Each day, make a commitment to your self that you will do it differently now. You will continue to take steps of change. These new steps will show you, without a doubt, that life holds more than you can imagine behind the veils of the future, as yet unrevealed. Your progress now must be made with awareness, eyes opened wide, and a knowing that you are on the journey that you must take for evolutionary growth.

It is not a time to be afraid, though drastic change may cause you to shake in your boots. It is not a time to call upon old fears to save you and swamp you. It is not a time to bury your self in your old patterns of behavior, nor to turn to others to rescue you. This time of change now upon that Earth calls for a concerted shift into mature consciousness. It is time to stop playing games with spirituality and your awakening self, and remove all pretenses and all coverings that you parade around with that keep you only half-heartedly acknowledging of your truth, and your journey. It is now time to accept the bare facts of your self as a journeyer of meaning, and of awareness.

Wipe clean the foggy mirror today, and take a good look at who you are, right now. Who is that person looking back at you? If the mirror fogs over again, then wipe it clean continuously as you allow your self to wake up to the reality of who you are. Do not shirk from your truths. Accept them, so that you may proceed now during this time of change. This time of change offers only truth revealed. Do not allow the foggy veils of the past ideas of the self, and the habits of the previous years, to take away what is being revealed.

If you can accept the shifts that have taken place while you have been unaware, and unalert, so can you accept this moment as your moment of real change and growth. From this day forward, I advise and encourage, All of You Journeyers, to keep your eyes clear, your future revealed, and your past equally so, in order to avoid getting caught in the veils again. With clarity of vision will clarity of purpose be revealed, and this is what you ultimately seek.

Your life’s purpose will remain hidden as long as your ability to accept and embrace change is thwarted by the veils of oblivion. But remember, those veils, those habits, and those old routines are so well known to you, so apparent, and so reliable that you know every aspect of them, how they work, and how they don’t work any more. Aren’t you tired of them? Aren’t you ready for this great shift, now being presented to you? Aren’t you ready to see the truths of who you are, and who you are to become?

This energy of change asks for commitment. It asks for staying in the flow of it, without falling back into your habits of oblivion, fear, and the habits of the big baby. This time of change asks you to consciously decide that now is the time to finally allow for real growth, while clarity is present, and will remain available if you decide to step into it, rather than back into the veils. What do you choose today? Are you ready to stay in your clarity? Ready to walk out of the veils, the fog now, and bear your truths as your fuel and your fodder for the journey ahead?

Ask your self today, while you gain awareness, as a shift opens a door or a window for you, if you are going to stay upon this path of awakening. This awakening is offering you a real opportunity now. Are you going to accept it, and continue to grow, living a new life with maturity, clarity, and awareness of your spirit guiding you? Don’t back away from it! Be careful, My Dears, you may miss a wonderful opportunity.

#265 Enact Change

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

Unearth now your deepest desires for growth and transformation, and allow your life to be lived by them. Inculcate a new transitional period by living more fully now your spirit guided life. Do not hesitate in this endeavor, for the sooner you begin your new version of living upon that Earth, the sooner will change happen, not only in your own life, but in all life.

The simplest concept is all it takes to begin a process of change, and that concept, basic and easy though it may be, is so often neglected in thought and deed, and is considered unreliable by those who push for drastic change. That concept is: that all energy affects all other energy, that your actions affect all other actions, that your inner intent has affect outside of you.

To demand change will have little effect, but to enact change will have great effect. It is as simple as that! Begin by shifting your own intent, using your energy in a positive, transformational way in your personal life. Allow your own inner spirit to guide you in your outer life more often and more fully now, and see what begins to happen in the world around you. Shift negative thinking, and ideas of worldwide despair to a positive transitional energetic momentum, beginning within your own body and your own inner self. Express your inner spirit self now, immediately, in some fashion, and see what happens.

Today is a day of change, and you can urge that change in a positive direction by participating in the energy of change from your inner spirit self. Use your intent, from your deeply searching inner self, to energetically begin a new life. Begin from your inner place of calm, with a balanced perspective on who you now are, a being who is headed for evolutionary life. Use all that you know, and all that you aspire to experience to aid you now, as you continue your journey.

Today is a day of change. With focus on the positive, with good for all of mankind, an awakening that will shift that world into a new transition, based on spirit experience and spirit intent, is perfectly possible, acceptable, and desirable. Your own wish for shift and change is echoed by many. Allow your energy for truth, and for spirit-driven actions, to be part of the new force for change. Allow your calm inner quiet, your meditations, and your prayers to escape outward now from your inner self to engage the energies seeking resonant, reciprocal energies.

Turn your heart-centered breathing outward now, from your heart, into the universe of other heart-centered energies, and become part of the greater energy for good, and for change. As you breathe your heart-centered breath, as you warm your heart chakra, and allow it to soothe and invigorate you in your inner work, begin to shift it outward, reversing your breathing intent so that you turn your energy outward, into the greater world, sending your heart-centered calm and self-loving breath out to meet the calm and self-loving breaths of others on the same path of growth, transition, and evolution. Then take it back again, into your self, back into your own heart chakra, your center, strengthened now with the intent of energetic convergence, and watch the mighty effects of such gentle persuasion.

Direct your intent outward in order to stir up positive change now. You are all ready for this, capable of participating, and fully prepared for a different day. Make it be different by your own shift now. Do not allow the change to take over your life, but instead use the energy of change for your own positive good and that of the world around you. Take over control of this inevitable aspect of change, and allow it to release its energy in a new way. Don’t wait for it to roll over you and knock you down. Harness it instead, and put it to work, making good use of it. You may be surprised by how much power you really have to enact change in your life. I dare you to shift today, out of your seat of complacency and non-action, and really take over your energy, driving your vehicle now from your innermost source of power, and see where that takes you!

NOTE: Jeanne is referring to Heart-centered Breathing originally offered in Message #77 and listed in the sidebar under Guidance on this channeling page.

#264 I am a Student of Life-I am My Own Teacher

Dear Jeanne,
What message do you have for us today? Can you also tell us what the energy over the next few days will be like as we go into the weekend?

Do not look too far outside of the self for pleasure and for compromise. Do not attach to what is happening around you. Do not soften your inner work, but keep it going in a balanced and calm way. To compromise that, at this time, for attachment to outer pleasures would result in stagnancy. I advise continued work on the self even though the tendency is to reward and retire from the busyness of the work week.

Remain focused. Try to use your time wisely even though your routine does change at the week’s end. Incorporate all that you are learning now into your activities beyond the self, as you interact with others, and as you accept offers of conjugation.

Be aware that the energy does continue to offer challenge, and observe that your own ability to read the energy is now enhancing, even incrementally, as you take in the content of these messages. Be aware that the intent of this awakening is being spread, and many are waiting to discover it in you in order to not only recognize it in them selves, but in order to allow it to gain importance in their own lives. Although there may be much talk of awakening, do you already know that the only true awakening is the inner awakening.

Do not look too far outside of your self now for recognition or significant resonance in others. Remain innerly focused. Note, with your own inner work, that yes, there is a new feeling, and a new awareness of spirit, and of energy, but do not get drawn to it too heavily. Allow it to be present, for it will have impact where an awakening is necessary, but your own inner work must not get sidelined.

Use the weekend energy to remain steady, balanced, and calm. Stay innerly quiet and focused. Retreat from too much outer activity as you allow your self the seclusion necessary in order to remain on a contemplative and deeply questing streak. Your inner work is of utmost importance. Continue turning to that as you get drawn outward by the energy, and the frenzy of the energy that continues to swirl, and invite, and even possibly captivate.

All in all, does it not matter what the energy does to you, or to others. What does matter though, is that you remind your self often to go innerly; to return to your quiet; to allow your self the luxury of continued self work; and that you do not fault the self for the steps you choose to take. If the energy entices you, and you accept its invitation to play in its buoyancy, so be it. But remain aware that the energy has the tendency to take over, and you may get swept up in its delight at having found you to be a tasty morsel. If so, when it spits you out after chewing upon you for a while, allow your self to study the experience, and chalk it up to energetic oblivion. Recognize what that means. Use it to teach your self.

That is all you need to do, be your own student and your own teacher. Go into your classroom continually, and write on the blackboard: “I am a student of life. I am my own teacher. I learn my lessons so I can graduate into new life.” In so doing, do you give your self permission to experience life, learn from your experiences with your inner knowing as your guide, and continue to seek your evolutionary path.

So, as this week does shift for many of you, accept your self for who you are now, where you are now; and know that you are an evolutionary being, full of energy, and eager for life to continually unfold and teach you what you need to learn. Allow your self to be aware of the energy, to feel it, see it, smell it, and have the experience of it. But mostly, pull in to your inner sanctum with all that you interpret in your life, and learn from it. Life is your greatest teacher. The energy is your lesson. And you are the pupil.

Good Luck, My Fine Travelers! I look forward to hearing from you all as you make your way through the energies that seek to teach you about your own energy. That is what you should remain focused on in order to not lose your well-earned progress.

#263 Your Fears Seek to Lead You to Your Proper Destination

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have guidance for us all today?

Do not harbor fears of the unknown as you take your journey, for the unknown is but the next step yet to be revealed, and there is no reason to be afraid. Each step is but your life opening up before you, the unknown becoming real. Accept your journey, all aspects of it. The mysteries of the past, and the mysteries of the future are yours, the parts of you that make you whole. If you own both the known aspects of the self and the unknown aspects of the self, why then do you fear anything? You already have everything inside you. Your journey is but a step-by-step revealing of your truths. Your participation in the journey is all that is necessary. By taking your journey with awareness, and unbiased acceptance of every thing you encounter, is what makes it an evolutionary journey.

In order to truly evolve is it essential that you remain aware of every step along the way as equally important. Pay attention to your fears, for they seek to lead you to your proper destination, pointing out the confrontations you must have in order to stay upon your path. Do not stay attached to the fears in your life, for then do you but remain stuck, and unable to proceed. If you allow fear to take you by the hand, will it lead you into its dark cave alongside your path, and keep you to itself, rather than allow you to progress. Fear wishes to keep you bound to itself, for its own comforts, making you think it is protecting you from your own discomforts, but in reality is it but feeding off your energy. It implies protection, yet is it in fact deceiving you, and keeping you off the evolutionary track.

When fear arises is it a flag, signaling work and challenge ahead. When fear arises is it time to buckle down, and study the self, and figure out why the flag of fear has been raised. It is the moments of fear in your life that present you with your greatest potential to grow.

Tackle fear with the courage and the skills of an evolutionary being. Take upon you the abilities you have been learning, and look at every aspect of that fear from as many different angles as possible. Do not take the conventional road when addressing your fear, for then do you stay upon the route that fear lurks along, and it knows every curve in that route, and every roadside hideout. Be unconventional, and you will trick it, and win at its own game. Fear does not easily give up. It is a sore loser and prefers to win at all costs, so expect it to be tricky, conniving, and relentless.

The energy of now supports fear in its many characteristics, allowing it to stay active, yet hidden. It is working to capture you at this very moment, even though you are not aware of is presence. This energy holds much that is not visible. If you are to use this energy that now circulates, must you remain keenly aware that there are other forces seeking your attention, wishing to draw you from your concentrated work on the self. But most of those forces are but aspects of the self that must be confronted and dismantled. They do not know that you are aware of this. They think you will fall into your old habits and patterns of behavior. They think you are as predictable as ever. But you have now in fact learned that they are not your friends. They do not wish to aid you on your journey, but keep you to themselves for their own needs and desires.

Do not reveal your knowledge, but knock them dead as they approach you. Confront your fears, and your hidden agendas that seek to sabotage your progress; and keep plowing ahead, without them now. You will find that your energy is flowing more easily as a result of your battles against them; that your spirit is enlivened, and your outlook on life fresh and inviting. Continue your progress today. Confront your fears from a new angle. Avoid your old habits, and take on your journey now with new eyes, and new weapons, as you meet your challenges.

This is good for now. Look beyond this one day, to those ahead. Remain focused on the journey, as an evolutionary one, full of opportunity and fraught with change. For that is what you seek, to change!
