#252 Direct Positive Energy Outward into the Turmoil Before Turning Inward

Dear Jeanne,
What can we look forward to today?

Remain focused on your journey, and your inner experience, even as the world around you does energetically speed up. Look not outward at the contention, the upsets, and the turmoil that the energy of now does stir up, but remain innerly focused. For even as the energy does have great bearing upon the events taking place in your world, so is it your job to do the work of the self. Even as you are pulled outward to do what you must in order to fix that world and change its path, so remain always centered on what is right. Do not get drawn into battle. Do not get pulled apart at the seams over the possibilities and probabilities, nor torn apart by what is happening upon that great Earth. Instead remain focused on what is right, what is good, with positive intent.

Though unhappiness may appear to prevail at this time, so is it most likely that any turn of events is necessary. For that Earth is a learning ground, and though it may appear quite clear and appropriate that one road must be taken in order for evolution upon that Earth to truly begin to make headway, so is it highly probable that lessons have not yet been learned. Whatever outcomes result from the many upsets and changes being thrust upon you, or those around you, or around the globe, so is it necessary to learn the lessons presented. Until they are fully learned, and done with, will change not happen.

So look today but briefly at the tumultuous events of the world around you, but then go innerly with your own lessons reflected in this outer turmoil. Do not get drawn outward into that energy, though it pulls and tugs at you. Do what you must to appease your sense of rightness and justice, and direct positive energy outward into the turmoil, before turning inward and saving the greater part of your energy for inner work.

And remember, no matter how events unfold, so are the results, the outcomes perfectly right, even though they may not at first appear so. As I have said before, until lessons are learned will they be continually presented in a myriad of ways, until each individual takes on the work of true evolutionary growth.

Place yourself now in the hands of your own energetic journey. Feel what is right for you to be doing now during this time of upheaval. Find your inner calm, and your inner focus. Grab on to it, and turn your concerns toward that work now. For it is the greatest work to accomplish, and the best way to affect the world at large. If many more of you did the work of the inner self to completion, so would the outer world truly change. It is not so far-fetched as many think, nor is it really that difficult to accomplish.

No matter what your inner issues may be, so are they possible to solve and resolve. Nothing is impossible. No matter how many excuses you may come up with to scare you away from your inner work, so look at the crumbling world around you and realize that your own life, both inner and outer, must not be allowed to deteriorate to such a state of decay and loss of direction.

Reassert your self firmly upon your path. Use this vital energy to do two things. First, send out good intent upon the waves of energy that swirl up discontent, tempering them with positive, calm overriding energy, asking for sobriety, compassion, and nonjudgmental focus to lay upon the energy that stirs up emotion and unsettling behavior, seeking change in a new direction. Do this first. Then turn inward after you have energetically done your part to participate in the world’s need for change, and return to the work on the self. In this manner will you begin to counter the outer energy with good intentions, doing your part with concern for all mankind. But then it is necessary for all to turn inward and question the meaning of this worldly upheaval for the inner journey. What does it mean to me that the world is asking for such change? Why is there resistance to such badly needed change? What does that tell me about myself and my own life? Am I resisting? Why?

Everything will turn out as it should turn out. Life will go on. Lessons need to be learned in order for evolutionary growth. What are my lessons that I am not learning yet?

Allow your inner journey to begin taking you where you need to go. Acquiesce to the signs in your life, reading the outer energy for your inner journey’s sake. Step into a new world now; for no matter what happens, is the world about to change. What about your world? It will be new too, but will you allow it? Will you flow with the changes, or keep resisting? Make it easy on your self. You will get where you need to go, whether you allow or resist. It’s up to you how you choose to make the journey. Do what is right. Use your energy wisely. Stay focused on growth. Remain in calm inner balance, even as you take on your greatest challenges and your most unpleasant tasks. The energy is good now, in spite of all warnings to the contrary; it just depends on how you choose to use it. Good Luck, My Dear Ones. See what happens!

#251 Find Always Your Passion for Your Journey

Dear Jeanne,
What can we expect today?

Abide by the rules of a seeking life, focusing always on your next step, but remaining contemplative and questioning of the meaning of now. Your journey is of utmost importance, but remain aware of the lessons presented to you daily. Do your homework. Discover the meaning of your everyday encounters with stumbling blocks, and with ancient energies that rise up in you and ask to finally be acknowledged and dealt with. For your journey to be complete must you address unfinished business from your past, your most recent past still slumbering in memory, and from your past lives still waiting to be reconciled.

This is your greatest accomplishment to engage and to decipher as each new day arises, and as energies do point out to you what you must learn about your soul and about your ancientness. Find always your passion for your journey, but find it for purposes of completion and evolution. By this I mean, complete your earth bound lifetimes, and seek to evolve to new levels of awareness. Though many consider life upon that earth to be the one and only learning ground, so is this not so. And it is not impossible for ANY one of you to evolve beyond it, though it has often been presented as only accomplishable by the most spiritually enlightened. That is just not so, nor is it a place to linger too long thinking about, for then does one either become inflated or dismissive, and neither of those traits will aid you in evolving. The only way to evolve is to do the work of the Self. This is what all enlightened humans have discovered; and it is not restricted to a chosen few, but is available to all.

The only thing evolution requires is awareness, openness to the possibility of all things, and a genuine desire to grow. But it also involves daring; and the determination to view life in a different manner, with detachment and focus on the journey, without being caught by the wants and desires of the big baby, the big ego, and the negative energies that seek to feed off such stagnant energy.

To lead a seeking life is to evolve to a place of detachment that is all-encompassing. By this I mean truly being at a place of growth, inner growth, without being drawn to stay caught by negative energies that prefer your energy to stay committed to the trappings of that world. Seek instead a new balance, fraught with detachment, but filled with love and compassion for all living creatures. Humbly walk your path, neither special nor unspecial, but simply learning as you go, looking always for what is right, and learning to love all others for the journeys they make, whether beside you, or far away. For all of you are creatures of grand energy that desires evolutionary completion.

So today, do stay fixated on your journey as you seek detachment from the energy of turmoil that does still seek to feed off your vital energy and satiate itself. This may be on a personal level, or this may be outside of you, teasing both your inner contemplation outward, or presenting you with promises of ego-boosting better left untouched. Watch your inner process. See where the energy seeks to draw you. Remind your self often that you are leading a seeking life, that progress involves that world only as far as what lessons you must learn in order to proceed to the next level. Allow the ego to be present for what you need to make your way and live a balanced life, but do not allow the ego to be too eager, for then will your inner you suffer delay in progress.

I know this is a lot to process. But while the energy does swirl in such hungry state, as now, is it best to offer you much to contemplate in order to avoid its hungry jaws. Stay calm and balanced, sensitive to others, but remain present on your own journey at all times and you will do well through these next few days of continued turmoil. In the end all will settle down, and as the dust clears you will see that you are exactly where you should be. That is how life works! Enjoy the wonder of it, even as you wander on your path and contemplate all that you are given and all that you are asked to utilize now, as your awareness does open to new possibilities and new opportunities. Much is there to aid you. Do you notice?

#250 Stay Contemplative

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have guidance for us today?

Contain your inner calm. Do not allow it to be drawn outward by the energy that does seek participation in its raucous behavior. Stay innerly focused and centered during this time of spiraling energy that seeks new energy to fulfill it as it spins now in its whirlwind of turmoil. Do not attach, but do acknowledge its presence in order to remain balanced and aware. This is all I advise today.

Do not puzzle too much over the world at this time, but stay turned inward as this energetic frenzy does wear out its welcome over the next few days. Avoid falling into old traps. Shift now more firmly into your inner work.

Stay contemplative. Stay detached. Stay calm as you take your next steps, and as you focus forward now through the haze, seeking clarity and confirmation of your experiences by asking for more growth-oriented circumstances to come your way, focused on positive good on all sides. This is the best way to begin your new week; focused on inner calm balance; with good intentions for personal enlightenment and growth of your inner self.

Remain aware of your place at all times. Question your circumstances at all time for their inner meaning and you will do well.

#249 Remain Heart-focused, My Dear Ones

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message of guidance to carry us into the weekend?

Stay focused on the yearnings of the inner self as you weather the coming days, as change does infiltrate now more forcefully into the lives of many. Remain heart-centered. Remain fixated on the journey. Remain aware of the greater meaning in your life and the lives of those around you. Remain cognizant of what life offers in the future as you go now forward into the next few days of disruption, controversy, and energy unleashed.

I do not mean to scare, but I do mean to aid and prepare those of you who are aware and alert to the energy around you. This time of volatility will soon run its course, yet is there always the possibility of eruption of such energy at any time, for even though it may not remain as strongly present as it is now, so does it remain embedded in the network of all energy.

Hold now your hand upon your heart center, and ask for actions, and guidance, and words, and thoughts to come from this place of right action. This is where evolving adults must meet the world that is now; this is the place of wisdom, and the seat of truth; this is the new ground to walk upon, and the new air to breathe. Remain in this heart-centered place of inner calm and balance now, as you go forward into your “week’s end.” Though such a phrase does not have much concern in my world, so am I aware that it is significant in yours. Time is of concern only in that it poses the opportunity for change, which also implies growth. So take charge now of your own time of growth. Allow change to enter your lives because it is necessary, and it is also inevitable. But mostly allow change to enter your lives because you desire it, and you look forward to the possibilities that lie ahead. Life offers unlimited possibilities, and your job now, even as you rest from your work week, is to embrace the possibilities that life presents to you; and flow into new life, guided by what each new day offers.

Present your self with your own heart-centered guidance and knowing, and begin to look at the changes in your life from this place of calm; and accept your journey as conducted from this place, rather than conducted from outside of you. Find your rightful place in your heart-centered journey, and then discover how you fit much better into the journey that unfolds outside of you.

Remain heart-focused, My Dear Ones, and you will maintain your awareness, and your clarity. Your abilities to weather through this time of volatility will aid you as you ease through this time of change. Keep in mind that in order to embrace and be positively impacted by change, must you choose to be so impacted. Yes, you can sit and watch change happen all around you. You can sit and watch the debris fly, the unsettling of life happen all around you. But in order to be impacted by it for your own greater good, must you choose to be. Your choice of participation in change is up to you. Often change will clobber you over the head, and you may feel you have no choice, but in reality is there always a choice in how you decide to handle it. This time, handle it from your heart center, and embrace change (whether it be small and barely discernible, or heavily laden upon you) from this new place of calm centered and balanced truth. You will feel it within you if you shift your focus to this area of the self, both the outer heart center, the physical one, and the inner heart center of all-knowing.

Embrace your self today in this manner, as a heart-centered being, full of awareness, and connected to all-knowing. This is who you are now. And by accepting this new you do you offer your self the opportunity to ride the winds of change in a different manner. Lift your nose and sniff the energy of change, allow its fresh scents to ignite your own inner desire for change and growth on a spirit driven level, and open your heart now to a new way of living. Be guided by your own heart, but don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. We are always available, My Friends!

#248 Good Surrounds You, If You Invite It

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

It is as yet too early to say what the outcome of this energetic confluence will be, but it is never too early to suggest that remaining in calm balance will allow for greater experience no matter what the energy around you is doing. Support your own experience of that volatility that now imposes itself, and seek entry into your knowing by remaining always the calmly centered journeyer.

Good surrounds you, if you invite it. So I ask that all of you focus on positive words and thoughts about your selves, your world, and all who exist in it, and then extend your positive intentions beyond even your own world. Allow good to become your inner and your outer focus today. Allow this good energy to be expressed outwardly and engaged innerly so that you absorb your own good and loving intent for your inner self. Love and compassion do need a great place in the world of today, and this must begin within the self. For how can you exude love and compassion for all, if you have not fully accepted the self, the inner self and the outer self, and allowed your self to be totally acceptable and acknowledged as perfectly right for your journey? Hold the self accountable for every decision and action; accept responsibility for your journey; and allow your every action to be made from your inner core, with truth and rightness of action to be your guiding forces. If you operate from this place of inner truth, then is it possible to fully accept and love the self, with true compassion, fully accepting of the journey you are now on.

Acknowledge your independence, your own journey, and fully own your choices and the places you have gone. Love and appreciate the self for the adventures you have allowed your self to take, and then look at the others in your life, and love and accept them for the adventures they have allowed themselves to take. Make your choices in life now based on these truths of the self: that you are on a journey that is your responsibility, that you are fully capable of taking it, that you did indeed plan and charge your self to take it, and that you are going to continue taking it. With full responsibility for and full acceptance of your journey, may you now begin to find that inner core that does rightfully guide and protect you. This is the aspect of the self that does deserve love and respect. This is the aspect of the self that must now engage in life and become more awake and cognizant of your place upon that earth. Allow your inner spirit, so eager for life, to be fully accepted and acceptable to you, the outer you, and allow this inner spirit to be loved by the outer you now more fully.

I speak of this inner/outer self today because the energy may seek to separate the two, and it will be your job today to keep them together, paired together as two halves of a whole, alert and aware of each other and of the journey you are on. Remain in balance so that you are not pulled apart by the energy, so that you are not separated and lost to your inner self, nor the outer self either. These two aspects of the self must remain glued together now, lovingly acknowledged, accepted, but most of all kept in full awareness as you journey on.

Extend your awareness of self then outward. Extend your feelings of love and of goodness outward then, in positive energy, countering the energy of today that seeks to get in there and unbind your hard fought for convergence of these two selves. Be aware, but mostly be loving and gentle with your self, even as you remain firmly and steadily walking upon your path of positive energy. Your own energy is more powerful than that outside of you, and this you must know and keep in the palm of your hand today. Fight pulling-apart energy with tightly-glued energy of inner and outer self in complete balance and awareness. I love you all for the journeys you are taking, and the good jobs you are doing to remain aware and alert. Keep up the “good” work!
