#316 This Day is a New Day

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

Do not find fault with the self, but move on with lessons learned, your inner work maintained on a path constantly pruned and swept clean of debris. Hold your self accountable for proper and dutiful attention to the daily work necessary to keep that path one of centered and balanced loving attention. Do not thwart your progress now by falling into the old patterns and clothing of the previous you. It is now, during this time of turmoil outside of you that it is most important to study every nuance of the behaviors of the self and place control, intent, and firm determination on the work of the recapitulation process. For this is your time of growth and advancement, My Dears, and you do not want to miss your graduation ceremony that will release you from the bindings and ties that have held you steady for so long so that you could learn, but now are no longer necessary as you proceed and prepare for new life to come.

This day is a new day. Intend that it be so and remain so. Intend that it be a day of fulfillment and meaningful hard work in whatever area of the self that needs attention. It is a superb day for quiet contemplation and reassertment of values, ideas, and meaningful work. Do not allow it to slip past you, as you lie inert in an old tumbled down shack that no longer holds comforts or truths. Construct a new abode full of light, of true meaning, and of only that which is conducive to the growing changing you. I suggest progress be made in sweeping clean, throwing out, and discarding of not only material things, but also issues and habits that no longer appeal or have importance to the new you who struggles to burst forth.

Allow the new you to take over, to maintain your property, and to place you on the path that leads to progress, growth, and spiritual fulfillment. This time, this energy, and this day ask for your supportive self to step forward and be your constant companion. Recapitulate as you proceed, for it is a necessary part of the process. You must reconcile all aspects of the old you, understand why they have been so important, and why you no longer need or desire them in your life.

You are on a new path now. Keep it holy in your own way. Practice self-discipline in the amount that is necessary for you to advance out of your rut and to firmly place your feet upon this beautiful new path, on this beautiful new journey.

See your life as flowing, as wonderfully inviting, and as a renewable resource of energetic potential. See your self standing strong and handsome upon your path, your physical body’s strength firmly accepted and eager to be a participant, perhaps even your most forceful proponent. See and intend your spirit out of its fetal position now, uncurled, and standing just as strong, focused on growth and this most amazing adventure, as you put your first moving foot forward.

This is a day of growth, of opportunity, of advancement, but you are the one who is and must be in control. All aspects of you must come together now to move forward and take advantage of this time of stable growth. Ask for help when you need it; but I guarantee all you really have to do is go innerly and you will find all the help you need. It has just been waiting all this time for you to discover that you have it inside you, a whole treasure box of guidance, knowledge, awareness, clarity, and incredible energy. Find it, and use it to your fullest advantage. This is the day to use it, but also to discover the tremendous power of it. This is a day of experiences unfolding all around you. Enjoy!

#315 Keep the Self Focused on Change

I asked Jeanne for some guidance today.

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

Keep in mind that you will be approached by and have consequences of old habits, criticisms, and thwarted attempts to grow until you fully recapitulate. The energy of now does stir up old ideas of the self, offering opportunities to re-evaluate and investigate the past; offering not only the possibility to move on, but the possibility to fully recapitulate events that still hold you bound. Do not allow this energetic time of retrospection to pass by, unused to fullest advantage.

I advocate deep inner work now in order to give the self a much needed boost forward. Do you wish to remain stuck? The truth is revealed over and over again, yet do you fall back into repetitive behaviors and moods that are not conducive to the yearnings of your spirit. The intent of growth is just that: focus and intent on growing.

This struggle I speak of is one that all must confront, and the biggest hurdle during recapitulation. I advise being brave, but also being firm with the self. Discipline is necessary, and a forward focus on the pleasures to come as one is freed of the past. You are given opportunities to experience such freedom, glimpses of the self as whole, contented, happy, but most of all unburdened and able to function in a new way.

Keep the self focused on change. This is the key word now as this energetic whirlwind does stir up much that wishes to dispute with you, and that offers only old solace and old intimate details of behavior. But you know, fully, that those old behaviors are no longer conducive to the growing and changing you.

“I am a changing being. I am an evolving being. I am energy itself. I am growing and going forward into new life. I am a changing and evolving being of light and energy. Fulfillment of purpose and meaningfulness of life are my goals. I am a being of light, energy and evolutionary growth.”

This statement is true for you, for all of you, My Dearest Readers and Traveling Companions. I know that the energy of now is one of confusion, struggle and confrontation. But I also know that you have learned how to use such adversity for growth, and that is what you must do now. Turn the tables on the energy that disrupts, grab it by the tail, and turn it to your advantage. Only then will your work now during this time be useful to your evolutionary growth.

Do not fall victim to your past. Take the energy offered to go innerly and do the work. It will take concerted effort, but the advantages are outstanding; and that is where your focus must remain, on the truth and the outstanding qualities of the self, who is strong, capable and determined to learn and grow now.

That true self is pushing at you to come and accept its gifts of companionship as you journey. Reach out your strong hand and accept what it offers. It is only your self coming forward to guide and grow now. Don’t miss the opportunity to have a new experience of the self. You’ll be glad you did; for as you turn the tables so will you advance beyond the old ideas, proving that you are powerful, centered, and able to tackle anything that approaches.

Remain aware of your strengths now. Allow the weaknesses to disappear from your cognitive awareness. Allow focus on the self to blossom out of the old ground, and burst forth on new ground. The new you is asking for your participation during this time of urgent change.

Do not lose sight of the progress already made and the full potential of the self. You are all doing well. Stay positive. For in reality is that all that you need to combat the old energy that seeks to captivate you. It is testing you to see how far you’ve really come. Show it the changed you, not the old lost you who sits only peripherally on the edge of your awareness now. Push forward the new you. Once the new you appears, the energy will see the truth of the change in you and back down. But until then it will remain to fight. Good Luck!

#314 The Soul’s Journey Begins Randomly

Tom asks Jeanne a question today.

Dear Jeanne,
My question today is actually a question about a question… maybe THE question. I sometimes wonder, like I think everyone does at one time or another, what was before the beginning? I don’t really ask expecting an answer to that question as much as I wonder whether it actually is a valid question, or is it an example of the limits of human understanding. If it is a meaningful question, I wonder whether it’s perhaps the one question that remains unanswerable regardless of the level of evolution attained. Considering this question leaves me with an uncertainty about everything, since it seems to tear away any solid foundation that seems so necessary in order to move forward with purpose in life. Most of the time I put this out of my mind and just ignore that question as unanswerable, as I think everyone else does also. Thank you for the good work you all do. I look forward to your guidance each day, and my weekly appointment with Chuck. Perhaps this question just proves that therapy is where I belong!
Love,
Tom

My Dear Tom, you assume that there is a beginning, a foundation upon which all life first sprang from, a birthing place, a fountain of life, yet is this concept so difficult to perceive because in the reality of infinity is there no beginning and no ending. There is no threat of non-existence. Is that a concept you can grasp hold of and take into your knowing? Is that an idea that you can hold in your hand and look at, feel, and understand as attainable, your evolutionary potential as endless possibility?

If that is a concept that you are capable of looking forward to, so must you also be able to conceive of the time before you began your human experiences because it was the same endless field of energetic possibility that you now work so hard at achieving.

Does the word infinity scare you and leave you feeling ungrounded? I do not mean to bring you to a place of uncertainty or fear, but to introduce infinity as a place of joy, of rejuvenation, of eternal life and energy, and the ultimate place of life’s mysteries revealed in the utter experience of it, of your energetic self.

The time before your cycle of lives was, however, a time of incompletion and unfulfillment, an embryonic state of pure energy, as yet uneducated, and untested. Yet was it an energetic bundle of all knowing and understanding of the concepts waiting to be experienced, experimented with, and tested.

Time before time, as you know it, was whole in one sense, yet was your being incomplete in the sense of training and utilizing the skills available in order to continue evolving beyond that metaphoric state of energy. As an unevolved energy being are you full of potential, existing in infinite possibility, pure energy with no connection yet to evolutionary growth, and unavailable to proceed until the soul’s journey begins.

What sparks the soul journey? (Asks Jan)

The soul’s journey begins randomly, as energy is the factor and the catalyst. Position, possibility, synchronicity, and the availability of your energetic composition are all factors, but the biggest factor is very simple, you are simply in the right place at the right time to begin that new beginning, the long evolutionary journey to higher consciousness. You contain it (higher consciousness) within your energetic state. This is true for all, but it is undeveloped, untapped, and quietly awaiting release from its embryonic state. The soul’s journey releases the potential of this unlimited resource. (The image I received during this explanation was much like a gumball machine, or a lottery machine, with balls of energy bouncing around, eager to go down the chute leading to new life.)

Your first birth upon that Earth signals your first attempt at capturing the truth of energy, of all knowing, of infinite and evolutionary growth, and potential for moving forward. Your subsequent births offer the opportunity for this process to culminate. Yet as you now experience, so does it require a lot of work to stay focused on a path of discovery and truth of infinity, and what it truly means to be an evolutionary being.

By the time you have achieved the state of awareness that you now exhibit, so have you lived many lives, gained much knowledge about life upon that Earth, and gotten to a place of acceptance of life as a continuous journey. This is a very good place to be in, Tom. For you are questing, yet are you also trusting that you are on a journey that is meaningful and has ultimate purpose. And that, My Dear, is very exciting and should provide you with the comfort of knowing that you have been doing a good job, and have come far in your journey.

Do not feel lost by the concept of endlessness, of infinity having no beginning and no end, of time existing only as you journey upon that Earth, for those are not concepts easily recognizable as grounding for the journey being taken upon that plane. You should feel grounded. You should feel a sense of place, and of beginning, in order to track your progress and define your life. But ultimately will you experience your energy body, your ethereal self in that infinite nothingness, and be perfectly satisfied with that state, for it will fit your energy body, just as the confines of Earth’s time and space fit your physical body now, as you take your journey.

I do not believe that to ponder your very beginning will bring you to a place of shattered ideas, but instead this explanation may solidify your concept of the true energy self as an evolutionary being, with always a purpose of evolution to higher awareness as your catalyst. You are where you are now because you have worked hard to get there through these many journeys you have taken; evolved from infinite knowing, yet learning what that means as you progress; training to be able to utilize it in the life still to come.

For all of your journeys are training camps where you are offered the opportunity to learn and to hone the skills you learn during each journey. The trick is to stay connected to the fact that you hold within you all that you need to grow, to evolve, to connect, to perceive, and to become fully aware of all that exists, and all that pertains to evolving to a new level of existence. Do not be afraid of the journeys, either the beginning or the infinite potential ahead of you. Your energy knows what I mean by this. Now it’s up to you, in your human form, to accept that this is so, that infinity awaits. It always has and always will, and it is quite a lovely state of being, where unlimited potential awaits.

Keep up the good work. I hope I have satisfied you on this idea of beginning, and the true prospects of evolutionary growth. Keep learning!

#313 Do Not Anticipate, But Do Participate

Today I asked Jeanne another question.

Dear Jeanne,
In yesterday’s message you talked a lot about change and how needed it is now. I think most people are well aware that it is very necessary, but getting started making real changes can be difficult. Can you speak about this?

Change must happen or there will be no growth upon that Earth. Such stagnancy has occurred, and the result is the condition you now find yourselves in, both in the world and in the United States of America. Do not believe that it is up to others to force change, for that is not so, nor is it the responsibility of the governments or the powers that be, for often are they the ones most stuck. No, as I usually say about any aspect of growth, it is up to each one of you to enact change within the self and within your own life.

Do not harbor fears of what might happen, of how you will sustain change, or how you will maintain your present status as you perceive the necessary changes that must be started. Do not anticipate, but do participate in changing your self, how you live, and how you use the resources upon that Earth. Do not be afraid of loss or of devastation, but instead think upon positive, natural, and long lasting changes that will be viable and strengthening for the self and others.

There is much upon that planet that asks for change, for nurturance, and for doing things differently now. I do not advocate that you suddenly shift, but I do ask that as a thinking caring individual you begin to ponder your own situation and seek to do life differently now.

This I have asked of you many times before. I ask again that you do things differently in the inner you, by doing your inner work, and in the outer you who uses the resources of that Earth. Abide by the Steps of Change* to give you a head start on what it means to become a growth oriented and changing being.

If no changes had occurred from when man first inhabited that planet so would much be different, but for generations would there have been stagnancy of many sorts. From your perspective now look back on the utter simplicity of spiritual and natural life that has been long lost. Reconnecting to the spiritual is the best place to begin your own personal change, for from that connection to the inner you are you offered many threads to choose that will inevitably lead to a strong and certain direction of change.

As you are already perhaps strongly attached to the spiritual self so must you go deeper into that spiritual self now for daily living, daily encounters, and daily business. Bring that self outward now, and ask it to make the decisions, based on your knowing that it will choose only what is right. Once you are friends, companions, with this inner spiritual self, so can you trust the decisions made by this soulful self to enact change and really begin to see some progress in your life.

As you know, I always suggest that no real and lasting change will happen until you get into the habit of doing your recapitulation. Find plenty of time for pondering the self, and you will find that as you do this act of inner resolution and cleansing so will you free up your energy so that you may actually have new energy for all the changes that are now so necessary.

Do you not hear the word “change” being spoken all around you? What does that mean to you on an individual basis? Find out what change means in your own life, and then go make it happen for your spiritual growth. Then see what opens up as you begin a journey based in truth of the self, and eagerness for a changing self first of all.

Don’t wait around deciding too much longer. There isn’t time for stagnancy. The energy is available to aid you. So why not see where it leads you? You’ll be very pleased with the changes in your self, and you’ll be very pleased with the ease with which you begin to flow in your new life as you find ways to become a changing person in the world around you, seeking not only personal change, but real viable changes that will have affect in the world around you as well.

Do something to start the ball rolling today. I challenge you all!

#312 Do Not Lose Sight of Your Ultimate Goal

Today I asked Jeanne a question in the old format, for a broader view of how she is guiding humanity these days.

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

Do not lose sight of your ultimate goal, which is completion of your life cycles upon that plane. This is your task, and this must remain your focus in spite of the messages of warning and propositions from outside energies. Do not fall victim to fears of attachment, nor focus too keenly upon the negative or evil energies and entities that I have spoken of. Keep your attention firmly focused on growth and learning the ways of the warrior, the one who knows and understands that evolution is the only name of the game.

With focus on evolution and personal growth do you open the doors to new awarenesses that will lead you safely through the trials and tribulations of life, but also bring you good guidance and protection as you make your way focused on moving on to a new level of awareness and life.

When I speak of the realities that exist around you, so do I do so in order to aid you in remaining alert and knowledgeable. For only with knowledge will your journey truly be one of fulfillment, and your issues be resolved. To go blindly forward with naiveté, and dazed or glazed eyes and mind, is not going to offer you enough for progress to be made. You must be alert, aware of all that exists to disrupt you on your journey; and learn the ways to keep yourself safe, protected, and focused as you make your way. Without such knowledge will you continue to remain caught in the veils of unknowing and the untruths that are spoken all around you.

So I did not intend to scare by answering questions about the occurrences and dangers of negative powers, but only to teach you that there are many energies that seek sustenance. By remaining focused on unburdening the self of old ideas, old pathways of action, and seeking the deepest truths of the self, so will your concentration on this process of recapitulation, if done with pure intent, keep you safe upon your path. If your own focus remains on seeking good in the self, and acknowledging that it does exist in all upon that Earth, though often deeply buried, so will you offer your self a safer passage by becoming unappealing to the negative energies.

Use your knowledge of the self to seek greater knowledge of the self and the world you have inhabited. Seek to change the self and the means by which you live upon that Earth, for this is called for at this time. The energy of change is upon you all, and will continue to shift, and collide with other energies, wreaking havoc, devastation, and desiring that all upon that Earth wake up to the facts that things are different now and will continue to be so.

It is up to those of you who reside there to be the arbiters of change, to speak out for change, and to enact change in your own lives, so that the future may offer a brighter light than now shines upon that Earth. Change your self; change your own world; change your thinking; change your habits, your desires, and your means of using the natural resources at your disposal. Think and act differently now, from the heart, and from the head that knows and urges truth to be accepted and recognized as the new means of life.

Do not run from your own truths. Do not shift too far from your own inner work, but remain cognizant of all that is shifting and changing around you, and go with the flow of this energetic push that does come from everywhere. Remain centered. Learn as much as you can about your self, but stay always on the path of good and of change, debunking the untruths, and finding the deeper hidden truths of the human condition and the meaning of your own life upon that Earth. That is how you will succeed in becoming an evolutionary being now during this time of great shift. Look to the self for the answers too, for that is where the real truths to who you are lie; and the answers to the how, the why, and the wherefore of life. You are an evolutionary being already, you just need to reconnect to that true self who asks you to do the inner work required to find the thread that will unravel the whole picture of who you thought you were and reveal the real you.

So enjoy the energies that come to aid you as you find your way. Remain upon your seeking path, with diligent foresight, planning, and concerted effort to remain focused and always seeking enlightenment and truth. Good Luck, your way is paved with signs and with guidance. Look around you with awareness and alertness and you’ll see what I mean!
