#203 Ride a Fine Line Between the Energies of Progress and Deception

Dear Jeanne,
Another weekend is approaching. Do you have guidance to offer for the next few days? What will the energy be like?

The energy continues to ride roughshod if you are not alert and aware of the power punch that it packs. With awareness is it possible to hang on to the reins and ride it with perfection, enabling your journey to progress. With determination will you succeed while at the same time remain aware of the undercurrent that does attempt to unseat you. This duality of energetic flow will continue unabated now for a few weeks. The most engaging and apparent energy will be available for harnessing for your usage while the slithering undercurrent will seek to muddy your path so that you may slip and fall.

Watch out. Keep alert. Be aware of what comes at you to whip you from your saddle and unseat you from your steed. Be also aware of the back-wind that pushes you along, and may send you farther than you are prepared for at this time. Remain in command. Become the leader of your own energetic response to the energy above and below you. Do not get caught by either, but ride smoothly between the two, skimming above the slippery undercurrent, and keeping your head just touching the grand energy above that is so enticing. Utilize your skills of balance, of good sense of self, and of inner knowing to guide you through this time of voracious energy. It seeks your participation, but it is up to you to ascertain just how much you are ready for and capable of. Use common sense; use your awareness of your past, your present, and your future to guide you through this time of energetic trial. All time is now. All experience is meaningful for now. Do not dismiss your past as finished, but recall your lessons from the past in order to retain your firm seat upon your steed. Keep your head up, focused on reading the energy as it seeks to engage you. Turn your attention from allowing your self to be engaged, to systematically deciding when and where you choose to be engaged. By determining your engagement of it, do you offer your self the opportunity to grow with it, and in spite of it.

The energy has a dual intent. It seeks to test you, and it seeks to promote you on to a new level of awareness. If you fall off your steed, do not wallow in the mud at your feet, but simply climb back on, giving your self permission to go on. Ride a fine line between the energies of progress and deception, and you will do well. But remember, that one line is above, the other below, and this may make all the difference because when your head gets caught it leaves your feet unattended, and when your feet get caught may your head forget to partake in the freedom being offered by the energy above.

Be aware that a new kind of balance is called for now because you do want to engage in the goodness of this energy, affording your self the possibilities that are offered, but you do also need to remain grounded and focused on sensible living. It will be a challenge, but look forward to it with confidence. Remember, all time is now, so nothing is unimportant. Everything matters, but it is up to you to understand what this truly means in your own life. Be assured that lessons abound. But do you notice? And then, do you learn what you are meant to learn?

Stay alert and focused on your path, even as you bounce up and down upon your trusty steed and you touch a little too far into the heady energy above, and then down into the heavy draw below. Be aware, constantly, that this is the energy that exists now. Remain in balance. See what happens!

Here is the message for today:

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have guidance to offer today?

Find that equilibrium I so often speak of, and navigate from that calm place of centeredness. Use your awareness to guide you. These two processes cannot be stressed enough, for without such balance, and such awareness, will you remain lost in the veils of oblivion.

Seek clarity. Ask for clear seeing and clear insight, but do not force your self into a false sense of such abilities. Allow them to come to you. They will be revealed when you least expect them, and how they come to you will be not as expected either. “Seeing” is a gift that, if you are not aware, may pass by you if you are trying too hard to achieve what you may think is meant by “seeing”. Seeing is not only using the eyes, but also using your inner knowing to be your eyes now. Sit back from your intense and penetrating stare at life, and allow your calm centeredness, and your awareness to be the captain of your ship.

Be alert so that you do not miss the utter truths being revealed to you, for they hide in the veils, and you may be granted only glimpses of them. Will you notice? Will you be drawn to the flash of knowing that accompanies these glimpses of truth? Who are you really seeking in your life? Who do you really seek to find, to connect with, and to know? Who really hides in the veils, keeping hidden from you all that you yearn for?

It is only your self, and your own truths that beckon and play hide-and-seek with you. Sit back in calm centeredness and accept that now; with your awareness alert and ready, is it time to finally look clearly at the truths of the self. Who am I really? Allow your self to be found. Catch a glimpse of your self as you run around in the veils, the oblivion of life. Then catch your self by the hand, and part the veils, and take a good look at who you are. Allow your calmness to remain balanced as you shed all judgments, preconceived ideas, and all old thoughts that have controlled your ideas of the self. Defrock this captured spirit self who has been hiding from you for so long, and from your deep inner calm really see who you are. Then will come clarity. Clarity will come in a word, an utter truth that will be undeniable. Whatever it is, do not back away from it. Do not let go of the hand you have grasped. Do not run away from the truth of the self. Do not allow the veils to close back over this true self, and this clarity that has been revealed.

Hold your awareness steady in your gaze, and take with you your knowing, this insight you have learned about the self, back with you through the veils of your day, and keep it clearly in your thoughts, a new insight. Use these techniques to revisit your self often, to discover who you are. Take time daily to go on an excursion in your ship, as the navigator, seeing clarity among the veils, the fog of daily life. Gather your truths by the hand, put them safely upon your ship, and carry them now with you into your life, your future, and see what happens next as you discover who you really are.

You are waiting to be discovered. You are hiding from your self. You are available and desirous of being found. Go on a seeking journey. The energy is good for this. Stay calm, balanced, and focused on the intent of discovering your own truths and you will do well. Ask the energy to aid you.

#201 Allow Ambivalence To Be Swept From Your Path

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have advice or guidance to offer us today?

Allow ambivalence to be swept from your path. Determine your direction, and clear your way of all debris that may pose a potential blockage or stumbling block. Do not allow interferers to seep in, with doubt in their pockets, but remain fixed upon your own knowing of your chosen direction. Your thoughts, your ideas, your suppositions, and your conflicts are all valid, reasonable, and totally acceptable for a seeking spirit. You are not alone, nor are you crazy or delusional. Contain your inner sense of this seeking self, this curious inner you, who does pose such interesting propositions of life and how it works. Remain this innocent self, and you will have success in navigating your life in that world, and in other worlds as well.

Allow doubt or disbelief to seep away, wash away daily. Attach instead to the sure signs that appear to guide you and show you the way. Allow dreams to manifest by trusting your own truths and your own inner self to lead you properly. It is not necessary to attach to the status quo. Far better to remain attached to that which your inner spirit points out. For in so doing will you achieve your goals in that life quicker, with a more direct approach, as you pay attention to that which truly resonates and allows you to have experiences that are not only meaningful, but growth oriented.

Continue to use the energy of now to process your daily life by following the rules of living as laid out for you over these many months. Watch for signs, trust your knowing, remain alert and aware, stay in balance in all aspects of life, and always trust your inner spirit to guide you correctly. But in order to do all of this must you be able to maintain a sense of innocence that remains connected to the energy of the universe, the energy of now, and the energy of the past, and the energy of the future. All energy is important, and all energy can be read so that you will know how to proceed in life.

During this time of energetic flow, as you achieve states of heightened awareness, be constantly aware that your goal now is to discover your own truths, and your own reason for living just that life you now live. Seek this reason, utilizing all you have been learning; and by pushing aside the veils of ambivalence and doubt discover your innocence, your truth, and your true path. Then act upon your inner knowing by taking your next step in the direction that resonates, that will lead you along this true path. In so doing do you lift other veils that hide your truths from you, and you allow your self the opportunity to really live your dreams.

Find your equilibrium, your calm centered self, your clear innocence, and dare to believe the truths that are revealed to you as you listen to your inner spirit, as it speaks of your life, your mission, your goal for that life time. The world is changing quickly now. What once may have been important may no longer make sense. What once held such power may now be obsolete, or near collapse, as the world all around you changes rapidly, on a daily basis. What is now most important in your world? What is getting in your way so that you cannot see clearly? Where does your veil of ambivalence lie?

Calm down, sweep it aside, find what is behind it, and determine if what is revealed is truly right for you. Does it resonate? Does it make sense for today’s world, and your own? Is it leading you further along the path of growth? Is it offering you energy, and the possibility of enlightenment, continued enlightenment?

Your biggest task now, during this energetic high, is to use the energy properly. Do not attach to the old ways, but look behind the veils, the curtains of old, and see what is in store for you as you seek to discover your true mission in life. It’s all there, waiting for you to discover it, but you must look in a new direction now, for that is where the energy is capable of taking you, and that is where the world itself is being taken. It’s all laid out. You just have to see it, and experience it. So, what are you waiting for?

Thank you for that message, Jeanne. I have a question to ask you. Yesterday, as I took a mystical journey to the rainforest, along the Amazon, I met a shaman guide, a native of that area, who I spoke to of my ambivalence about being a messenger, and what I should do with it. He said that I am not just a messenger, but a teacher too, and that being a messenger was not enough, I had to teach others. What do you think of that?

I agree. You are my direct link, a messenger of my words, bringing them to others. But ultimately is there little impact if you do not carry out what you learn and impart it to others. You know that your connection is not unique, and the goal of this mission is for others to learn how to access their own inner connection. And you are doing this by passing along the messages; you are teaching. But the root of your teaching remains being capable of connection, and that is what your teaching is centered on, teaching others to connect in their own fashion.

Keep this always in mind, that how others connect may not be in the same manner that you do, but all connections are real and valid for the future of mankind. For, ultimately, is the future also now, which means that it is important to open the doors, push aside the veils, and see what is really there, now, waiting for discovery. Use your tools to teach that all worlds are one world. Awareness is the key, but action is the method to making a new reality, and a new reality is necessary.

Do you choose to be one of the builders of it, by presenting the plans, the tools, the methods of discovering it, or do you choose to ignore the true fact that life as you now know it does not have long to survive? What then? Do you choose to become an explorer? Or do you choose to go down with an old decrepit ship, which no longer floats?

Teach what you know, so that others may see, so that others may discover that there is indeed quite an amazing future in store for all. You are all energy. When are you going to realize this fact of life? Life is energy. Energy is life. Energy is all around you. You can ignore these facts, or you can seek the means to merge with resonant energy, and find your way to new life. Don’t wait too long. Find a way to achieve it, now, one step at a time toward a new life. Teach your self as you go what it means to pay attention to what is being offered. Seek guidance, seek resonant energy, seek new life. What else is there being offered? Keep going.

Chuck Ketchel and Jan Ketchel

Here is the message for today:

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

Pay attention now, with absolute focus, to the energy around you and what it offers and expects of you. There are always two sides to every force upon that earth. Do not dismiss the fact that there exists a negative side to the positive flow of energy that now assists you on your journey. Do not get caught in your enjoyment of progress so that you lose awareness of that which seeks to disrupt your complacency.

At times of energetic high, when things are going well, when all is right, and there appears no disruption, still maintain alertness, because this scenario is but a false notion. Although such time of energetic high is to be accepted, and utilized to the fullest, do not let down your guard. If you begin to let down your guard do you open the door, even if but a crack, to other energies that do not intend to aid and assist you, but do intend to feed off your growing and bounding fuel. Keep your inner fire well tended. Be alert to what is needed in order for it to continually blaze. Be aware of the weather outside you, and the cold seeping in, and attempts to sabotage your cozy environment.

There exists now an energetic high, that if tended properly, will guide and aid you in your growth. If you let down your guard, and simply ride it, without awareness, are you setting yourself up for a long cold winter, and eventually you may find yourself knee deep in snow, without proper garments, and no shovel to dig your way out, your fire gone out, and your inner glow but a tiny ember ready to snuff out at the next puff of cold air. This is a very significant time upon that earth, especially in the United States, where holiday frenzy does captivate the greedy heart, and even the best laid plans for solitude and detachment from the commercial beast may suffer if alertness and awareness are not kept foremost in your energetic presence.

Yes, ride the energy. Yes, enjoy the holidays. Yes, feel the growth, and feel good about your progress. But do not allow your awareness of the truth of every day to slip from your view. Do not allow the truth of the world around you to melt before your eyes. Remain in your own truth, and keep the truth of all else before you now as you go forward, with eyes wide open, into the energy that does invite you forth, to engage it, to live it, to learn from it, and to test your prowess in it. Do not allow your awareness to be dulled, strained, tired, so that you lose consciousness of your path. Keep your path cleared, so that you always know where you next will place your foot, while tending your inner fire, and looking, looking, with keen awareness, all around, ready to block, to stop, to thwart attacks on your energy.

So, in this time of emotional attachment to old ways, to family ways, ancient ways, remain alert to the strength of the energy that does pull you forward to enjoyment of this time. Seek to change your attention to these old details, saving a portion of your attention for your continued growth, so that by the time the energy has finished its whirlwind through your life you will not find your self suddenly lying stunned upon your path, wondering how you got there! Do not lose touch with your inner work, your evolutionary focus, or your intent to change. The energy is available for much to happen now. It is up to you to decide how to use it. Where will your focus be placed? Staying upon your path? Or drawn outward, where you risk losing your balance and your inner glow? Be careful.

#199 Offer Your Own Questing Innocence Up To The Altar of Life

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

Remain aware of the energy that does remain but a ripple below the sea of awareness. Although the strength of its interference has decreased to a minimal level, feelings of release may hide that which continues to produce small instances of diversion. Do not attach to these attempts to consume your attention, but be aware that they are so miniscule that you may not even notice their presence.

This is now how the energy will ride, over the next few weeks, freed of inhibitions, and less attached to distractions and fears of old, but underneath will there remain the presence of the possibility of it sneaking in to your domain and waylaying you if you are not alert. Your training now to be aware of even such sly and sneaky energy has been sharpened, and this sharpness must you keep honed. Do not allow the freedom of release from energetic confusion and infusion to thwart your progress. Do not allow your attention to waver from your focused path. Continue to pay attention, to be alert to the world around you even as you continue your inner work on the self. These guidances do not change but remain your innermost meaningful mantras: to remain aware of outside energy, and to remain innerly balanced and calm, are your most important reminders as you continue your journey. From inner calm comes clarity, and with clarity comes knowing, and with knowing comes certainty of direction, and with certainty of direction comes further awareness as you experience your own life, and open to possibilities that are perhaps unfathomable until you actually experience them, and allow yourself to accept them as pure energetic experience.

Yesterday we watched the DVD of The Celestine Prophecy, which we had watched last spring, and we were once again affected by the message of energy, among other things, delivered in the film, so similar to your own mission. Are you aware of this film? What does it mean that your mission is so similar to the one described in this film?

I am not aware of such a film, but as Jeanne Marie Ketchel did I read books of the same name, for at a time did they impress me with their descriptions of energy usage. My message is not new. This we have discussed, but it is, in fact, being transferred by many of us, through many channels, you being but one. Throughout the world are there those who speak of energy in similar fashion. You know that my mission encompasses awakening not only to the realities of the world you live in, but the ability to perceive that which is to come. This is not at all a revelation, but in the times, such as they are, is this seen as revolutionary because it has been so buried by time and dissuasion by other ideas. Many do not trust our talk of energetic experience until personal exploration begins, and intimate experience is felt. Only by bringing awareness to “the possibility of everything” will such experience become acceptable practice and a new awareness of energy become not only acceptable but considered normal.

Your own experiences of synchronistic discoveries of energy talk is vital to the mission. Allow your own awareness to expand now beyond your own experience. This goes for all of you who read my messages. Do not hold it too closely hidden inside you, for in so doing do you keep it hidden from others who will benefit from knowing that their own experiences and yearning for experiences of energy are not in vain. In acknowledging your own work with energy do you open the door to others, offering them the opportunity to experience their own innocent knowing of energetic influence all around them.

By so doing, by opening your knowledge and your own experiences to others, do you participate in this awakening mission. By daring to speak of energy as real, as forceful and interfering, and as equally gentle and helpful, do you offer a great gift of awareness to others who struggle. All who exist upon that earth struggle with the dilemma of wanting answers for the questions not uttered. Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the true meaning of life? And what is the true reason for my life specifically? What is going to happen in the future? Where am I headed next?

These questions reside inside everyone you meet. Have no doubt about it. These are the questions that lie deepest, at the very center of every human existence. And yet, is there rarely discussion of such important inner talk. Bring now such talk out of the self, and begin to make it commonplace. Offer your own questing innocence up to the altar of life, and reveal your own truths, not as spoken by others, but as spoken by your own inner self. Place your innocence outside of you, and dare to allow it to speak your own barest sentiments, and in right resonance will reciprocal innocence respond, though it may not be immediately apparent that this is so.

Innocence seeks innocence, and beneath even the starkest exterior does innocence reside. Gentleness of spirit lies deep inside everyone, though fear and confusion often lie stacked above it, keeping it insulated, so that it does not hear the murmuring that it needs in order to awaken. Energetic murmurings do eventually penetrate even the toughest of exteriors, for all feel energy. Energy penetrates. This you have all experienced. The focus now is on learning to distinguish the different kinds of energy, learning to read it, and to know, impeccably, what it is saying to you, and then trusting that your direction is right and leading you on your energetic path to truth.

As you trust your own energy experiences, and as you find that your own innocence is awakening and speaking more clearly, so do I ask that you allow it to be spoken outside of you as well, in whatever way feels right. Test it, and see what happens. You may find that you offer energetic approval to someone who is ready to discover the inner self and the trust offered by such brave innocence, daring to not only wake up but to speak out. For who does not, deep inside hope for truth of their own innocence to be revealed to them, and to be experienced as real. Innocence lies at the root of human life, and human awareness, yet does it rarely dare to be so bold as to speak out.

Give your innocence back its ability to speak. Find its voice in your life. Find how it sounds, how it speaks, and how it wishes to energetically engage its awareness in order to become part of the energetic mission that is becoming so apparent to you upon that earth. Those of you who dare to pay attention to such beautiful displays of innocence are the next wave of growth, the next teachers, the next guides, as you use your own energy to connect with the seekers of spirit and truth.

So, do not hesitate to grow with this new energy that does offer speedy progress now, but remain alert to the fact that there are always present the feeders seeking your energy for their own consumption alone, and for no other benefit. Give your energy, but be also equally protective of it. Be cautious, but be brave. Be gentle, but be fierce. Be calm, but be alert. Be daring, but be wary. Be open, but be protective. Take one step at a time, testing as you go. If you go in pure, egoless innocence will you discover not only that you will meet resonant innocence, but that your own way will open with greater clarity, and further awareness will be revealed. Watch the signs all around you so that you know where to go. This is good for today and for this week ahead of you, as the energy does calm down and give this offer of guidance to aid you and others. See what happens as you dare to speak of energetic connection and awareness. It is the necessary wave of the future!
