#231 Do Not Use the Word Failure; Excise it From Your Vocabulary

Dear Jeanne,
What message do you have for humanity today?

Be cautious now, as this energy of today does turn and roll into a new aspect of the great change now upon the earth. There is an event taking place, shaping and preparing all that is to come. Though this may appear as blatant and confrontational at first, look in your own life, and deep into your own experience of change and shift, to discover the inner meaning as related solely to the journey you are on. Once you have discovered the meaningfulness of this event in your own life, only then will it be feasible to interpret it on a greater, worldwide level.

Learn first the lessons of the self, so that your actions and your attention to the world may reflect your inner growth. Without inner contemplation and exploration will there be little change in your outer experiences. For even as it is not productive to stay stuck in inner conflict, or inner patterns and behaviors of old, so is it the same in your outer life.

The world around you, even your own microcosm within the whole, will not outwardly change if your inner change does not occur. Inner growth first, then outer growth.

So, even as you make your daring escape from the old self, and allow for bold steps to be taken, remain firmly convicted to learning at every step. Life is your biggest teacher, and your most reluctant pupil as well. Find your balance so that you remain the vigilant yet connected teacher, to the pupil who desires change yet is fearful of it. Remain cognizant of stabilities and vulnerabilities in your life, of strengths and of fears, of inner guidance and inner debates. Allow your experiences in life to guide you to your inner questions; and work hard on solving your personal dilemmas. Only in vigilant and sustained inner work, with your focus boldly projected outward into resonant energy, will good growth happen.

Find your rivulet of energetic resonance, and become comfortably assured by the experience of it. For as you go full steam ahead for change, so will you desire a level of comfort so that you may work unafraid. Even though you will face challenges, and have many tests ahead of you, so must your classroom appeal to you, so that you will progress in an environment that is suitable to learning.

Begin anew every day. Do not use the word failure; excise it from your vocabulary. For every day is a day of learning, and thus is it positive, and right, no matter what occurs. Learn from every experience and you will guide your self to the right balance, the place of calmness that is necessary for growth to happen. Accept the place you are in right now as the perfect place to be. What is it that you should learn today? And then see where tomorrow will lead you, as change happens. In one way or another will you be challenged. It is inevitable.

#230 Do You Dare?

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message for us, to start off this new week?

As you progress on your journey don’t forget to look for signs that will lead you properly, and likewise challenge you, as you proceed. There are signs everywhere, but which ones are meant for you? This you must discover by your actions, your decisions, and your choices. With each step you take will new signs appear to guide you, but how they seek to guide will depend upon the choices you make. Only in taking steps, and only in advancing on your journey, will the signs that appear have meaning.

If you sit down upon your path, without movement, will the signs merely blur and confuse you. It takes participation in life, and in evolutionary growth, to correctly envision and utilize the signs that seek to aid you. With calculated steps, and growth-oriented intent, will all that is presented begin to make sense. But all of this guidance is only going to be helpful to you if you actively seek change, and begin to go on a different journey now. Do you dare?

Life awaits your participation. And when I say life, I mean life lived and experienced differently, with change as a motivator, and growth as an incentive. Your participation is all that is truly required in order for life to change. Begin the process and see what happens. If you are seeking change, now is the time to go for it, for change seeks you also. With a meeting of such forces of change, reciprocal forces, will there be much success, as the energy supports such change.

Don’t be afraid. Trust your heart-centered desire for change. Trust your inner knowing. Trust your inner self, desiring new life. It is available. Make a move, a step in a new direction; look around you for signs of significance, and then act upon them in order to know how to proceed with good guidance as your aide.

I know this may sound quite strange to say, but this time, now, is ready for even the most bizarre of ideas to take root and become mainstream, because there is both a need for drastic change and, energetically, great desire for it as well. Humanity needs it, and Mother Earth does too, so do not shirk from enjoying your creative expression. Now is the time to present agents of change, on all levels.

Find the signs in your own life. Be daring, and you will be supported by guides and the energy itself seeking resonance, and seeking connection with great creative forces in order for change to happen. As the energy does shake things up, allow your self to participate in it, for good, and for swift and lasting change.

#229 The Rocky Path

Dear Jeanne,
Another week is ending today and we are heading into a weekend. Do you have guidance for us for the next few days?

The path may be rocky, and you may stumble, and even though it is the right path look beside it and notice that the ground is more even, and choose to step off the rocks and take the less challenging terrain, if this suits you better. For many who choose to go forward boldly in the manner that the energy of now does invite, and I urge, so will the way not be clear until some factors of significance are put to the test of engagement. Do challenge the self with that which arises, and seek mastery of the issues that entice you to falter upon the rocky path. But do not sit down there and weep for your slowed progress. Learn what you must from every experience you engage, then stand straight again, and walk your chosen path, with awareness of enticing energies, and clarity of vision, as you gaze forward to the place where your path will eventually smooth out all together, once your lessons are learned.

If the rocky path is not your choice right now, and you decide to take the path to the left or to the right of your proposed rocky road, then give your self permission to step off the rocks and go a distance upon the grass beside the rocks. But know that you are only postponing the tough road until later, but also acknowledge your awareness of this other option, for it can be useful in order to prepare for what you will inevitably be challenged with later.

However you decide to make your way forward, do know that this is the right path, for if it has been chosen with heart-centered determination, and in a calm, balanced, and inner state of resonance, so is it right. This you must keep in your firm grasp, that your choice was made in right resonance, and this you must keep in your inner self, feeling the resonance as you go, even over the rocky stretches.

So take now your bold steps. Do what you must to begin a new journey in this energy that teaches you and aids you. Seek clarity at all times, and seek to stay in your awareness that all is meaningful, and everything is possible. Keep going!

#228 How Can the Avalanche Start if You Do Not Enact It?

Dear Jeanne,
Is there a message for today?

Be not hesitant in your search for truth and understanding. Do not hold back your bold self who wishes for growth and for life. As I have spoken now so often of change, so is it time to fully engage all processes in making change happen in your life. This is a time of upheaval and shift, yet why is there such hesitancy upon that earth to accept the truth of this. The need for change is the push that does begin the avalanche, yet how can the avalanche start if you do not enact it by creating even a minor shift in your life? Even a brief and momentary change will have enough impact to begin the whole thing shifting. In order for life to progress now, in order for this moment of standstill to twist into energetic force, must you, on your part, begin the shift that is so needed and so desired.

Start today by embracing the old you, and declaring your determination to shift shape now into the new you who does wait patiently to be discovered. You are not intending to desert any aspect of the self, or the life you have thus lived, but instead to fold all that has already been learned and encountered into the new batch of life you are stirring up. As you stir, increase your speed now and get that avalanche started, so that, before long, everything you need is tumbling and flowing into new shape, new direction, and new meaning. Allow shift to take place now. The time is perfect for this. Allow the small steps already taken to become bold and steady now. Allow your intent to be forcefully prosperous as you send it forth on a journey of discovery.

I urge upon you all this great task now, while the energy does support such boldness. I urge gathering of your inner energy, and finding resonant outer energy now, and with firm intent ask for what you most desire for growth and meaningfulness in your life. Ask for that which will bring you spirit growth, even as it will bring you progress upon that earth. Ask for awareness and insight. Ask for clarity and knowing. Ask for understanding, and the ability to love all who reside upon that earth, with compassion and goodness always present in your intentions.

Find your innermost desired truth today as you do the work of the self, and then accept it as your truth, for only then, by accepting it fully, can you truly take it in as part of who you are. With this one truth established, look for the next, and begin the process of self-seeking clarity, with the intent of growing exponentially now, with boldness and firmness in every step you take.

All of this is good for this time of shift. Begin to cause greater shift in your life now. Be prepared for an avalanche. You will find it quite exciting, I’m sure. And don’t be afraid; be accepting, be bold, be daring, but most of all, love and appreciate your brave self for doing the deeper work that is required in order to truly progress.

#227 Begin to Really Study What the Cyclical Nature of Energy Does to You

Dear Jeanne,
What message do you have for all of us today?

Have you begun to see a pattern, the cyclical nature of energy? Have you begun to notice that change occurs over and over again, that opportunities arise often? Have you noticed that I speak often of the flow of energy as either productive or potentially destructive? Have you begun now to understand that it is possible to read energy, and to make decisions based on your interpretations of it, finding your way through life purely by energetic means?

If you look at my messages over a period of months, and even years, will you note that the energy is either in a state of calm flux or vibrant and captivating, yet are there always present undercurrents that wish to entice. By learning to read the energy outside may you learn to control the energy inside as well. Beginning with your own energetic content is, however, the preferred method of learning to read and understand how all energy works.

Though the scientists do study intensely, seeking explanation of all energetic sources, so is it really quite possible to master any discussions of energy by learning to feel and see it with your honed human intuition. To be energetically aware is to have access to greater progress in life, to be aware of your place in the energetic flow, and to be cognizant of how to proceed. All impinge upon your ability to interpret the energy inside you and outside you.

So, with all that I have proposed regarding energy over the past many messages, begin to really study what the cyclical nature of energy does to you as an individual. Are you actually in tune with it, flowing nicely along? Or do you tend to give over your energy to the pull of it, and get tossed around by it? Have you succeeded in feeling it more, as a result of our correspondence? Or are you still trying to grasp the resonance of it?

To truly be an evolving being must your awareness of energy sharpen. Now is a good time to engage in studying your own intuitive skills, and your own resonance, both your inner calm resonance and that which you succeed in projecting outward. These may not be the same, for the inner place of calm may not yet feel safe enough to project itself outward into the world, but this we are working on.

Study today not only how you work energetically, but begin to see how the energy outside works, and how you have utilized it. Do you get caught in it, or do you feel your proper place in it? Do you allow it to take you far from your knowing and right place? Or do you hold on to your awareness at all times? The extremes, of letting go and holding on, are difficult to maintain at all times. So, assuming that you go back and forth in your energetic state, find out, more closely now, how you most often act when confronted, first with abrupt and steady energetic flow and then with subtle, gentler energetic influence. Discover in this manner your own patterns of behavior. Then allow for slight shifts, both inside and outside, in an attempt to better align your inner and outer selves, not only with each other, but also with the energies of your inner calm and what is being presented from outside you. Learn to engage outside energy, but learn how to do so to your utmost advantage.

As you read my messages, note that I always mention the energy and propose that your awareness to it must remain alert. So now, as this new time of growth does come underway, focus your intent on remaining energetically aware. What is happening to your inner energy? Are you maintaining calm steadiness so that your life is directed from this inner place of clarity? Or are you out of balance? Bring your awareness always back to your heart-center, and begin to hone your skills of energetic engagement from this place of calm centeredness. Then begin to engage in the outside energy, from this steadier inner self. You will find that your sensitivity to all energy increases, and your decisions in life will be reflected in this calmness. This new you may discover that life is indeed quite different now.

So for today, wonder at the truth of energy, that it is inside you and outside you; that to properly utilize it must you seek alignment with it, but this alignment must resonate with your heart-centered inner truth, and this is what you ultimately seek, truth. Truth of self will lead to discovery of greater truths. So seek truth of the self, by aligning with your inner self, your outer self, and the energies inside and outside.

Good luck as you take on this exciting task with exuberance and anticipation of truly discovering what energy really is: the interconnectedness of all things, and you are part of it!
