#131 Point Your Face Upward Now

Dear Jeanne,
A message for today?

Stay focused on growth and forward movement though energetic waves of disruption may seek you out in your calmness and unearth your darkness. Allow darkness to settle down now to a grey fog as you rise above it and see it clearly for what it is, your past, your long ago dealt with reality, or your unfinished business. Point your face upward now to new horizons within the self as you seek rejuvenation, and deal with your darkness as it speaks to you in this new place of calm, but not as it comes sucking at you in your old state of fragile impermanence. Stay calmly focused now on growth. Turn inward, discovering the new you as you advance, and allow your past misfortunes to linger in the background as you await your readiness for their truths. This is good for today’s energy. Don’t get caught by the diversions that seek your energy. Save it for you.

#130 Stay Mobile Yet Focused

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

Undercurrents will continue to dissuade you from your chosen path, from your concentrated efforts, and from your known allegiance to a certain cause, but disregard them. They are mere distractions, energy that seeks to disrupt and engage your attention so that you will lose your focus, your way; and your energetic concentration will be distracted from your keen attention on focused work.

Stay mobile, yet focused. By this I mean be aware so that you can quickly dodge out of the way of the wrong kind of energy seeking your notice, or the distractions along the way that want your notice. Dodge them all and you will do well.

Remain alert, aware, light, and swift in your actions, but most of all remain calmly centered doing your inner work. Allow the outside energy to take its own course without you. Do not attach to it, or engage it, and you will do well as the strong undercurrents come seeking attachment. Avoid them by your diligent work on the self. Continue your journeys, my friends. You are doing well.

#129 Stop the Whirlwind

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have any words of guidance for humanity today?

Slow down your intensity to a quiet hum. Your efforts do not need to be so heavy. Attend now to quiet, patient waiting as you allow your inner calm to encircle you with comforting familiarity, and allow the intensity of the energy outside of you to aid you. Your efforts will not go unheeded, or undone now if you back down and return to complacency for a while, because the energy of the universe will not allow for complacency to rule. But within your own being must you have inner calm and a certain amount of detachment from your intense work in order for growth to happen.

If you stay caught in the effort, when do you have time to step back and see the results of your efforts? When do you give yourself permission to observe the effects of all that you do for yourself and others? Do not dawdle too long in one place, with too much intensity, but back off, and wait for results to emerge. If you continually engage the same gear, with unmitigated intensity, do you risk stripping it of its ability to engage and function at all. Stop going in circles. Stop interfering in life, and stop curtailing the universe to fit your life, and your expectations.

Time now to acquiesce your intense hold, give up your deeply concerted effort to change something in your life that you must now allow to change on its own. Your efforts have provided enough fuel to wage a war, torch a building, or start a worldwide ripple of energy. But don’t you realize, that no matter how much effort you put into this situation, if you don’t step back and allow the momentum to take over, you will not only exhaust your own energy, but you will not engage the energy around you? For it will notice, “Oh okay, that person doesn’t need us, our help. They think they can do it all on their own. Look at that effort! But, don’t they see, it gets them nowhere!”

Don’t you see? Your efforts must now retire to calm. Calm your energy down to a recognizable hum of balanced vibration, and now allow for reciprocating energy around you to pick up where you leave off and carry your efforts far afield, beyond you, and have greater affect. Stop the whirlwind you have created in your life. Calm down. Allow the dust to settle, and then take stock of where you are.

Calm down now into quiet balance, first inside yourself, then notice how the energy outside of you will also calm down as it meets you on a new level. Learn to utilize the outside energy in this manner, to your advantage. Find the ease of it, how your efforts can return to calm and yet still be equally affective. Seek the calm of your own inner energy and find resonant rivulets of it outside of you to aid you in your efforts in life.

Abide by the rules of wise energy usage and you will see that calm, moderate usage results in calm, sustained energy; enough to complete your tasks and yet still remain with plenty for yourself. Attend to your inner calm today, and then see what happens!

#128 Continue Your Self-Study

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

Continue your self-study, my friends. Energy abounds that seeks to distract you from your path, to pull you from your focused intent. Remain diligently inward looking now, concentrating on your depths, your inner you. This involves your lifelong recapitulation practice, your intent to connect and seal a bond with your innocence, and the concerted efforts you have been making to remain in spirit resonance as you live and contemplate your life.

This time of self-study is not only important, but will allow you relief from the intensity of the energy around you. Focus inward will, as I have said, insulate you from the distractions and the energetic disturbances that seek feeding ground. But your focused intent is as a shield to such energy, and it would rather seek easier prey, so be aware of this. As you do your inner work, as you continually turn your back on that which pressures you for notice, will you discover that you are better focused, better centered, and better balanced as a result of the shift in energy, from greedy to supportive, outside of you.

As you turn your back upon such greedy needy energy do you solidify your own pact to grow and do the work of the self. As you continually grow, so does your detachment from that which seeks to distract keep you safe and evolving. Soon will you discover that the world holds less and less as your spiritual world grows larger and more interesting. As you expand your spiritual pursuits beyond the self, then too will you discover another world, equally real, that will become as prominent as the world around you now is.

Continue your self-study, and begin to discover what all of this means for you. You are not alone. Many are knowing that the world has serious problems, and that evolutionary growth is now more important an aspect of life than anything. For though the trees and bees may die off, so does the spirit live on, so does energy still reside and need release.

Turn toward evolutionary growth of spirit energy and you will aid the planet that so eagerly awaits renewal after so many years of depletion. Rejuvenate spirit awareness and in turn will the world around you receive equal rejuvenation as energy revives and knowledge brings clarity on all levels of life. Continue your work, your self-study, and see what happens next!

#127 The Path of Focused Work

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

The course you now choose in this energetic flow is significant for your growth. The path of focused work will have universal potential as it progresses, and universal backing. Your progress will be constantly alerted by that which seeks to engage and enable you as you do the work of the self, of the inner spirit, the work of growing.

The energy of now also seeks to persuade you to become involved in that which is better left untouched. It seeks to disrupt lives in order to push for tremendous growth. If that is the only way that you will be awakened to reality then that is the path you will be taking. But if you are already focused, and working diligently on the self, it is time to hone your focus down to the path in front of you.

There will be much energetic activity around you in the coming months as outside of you great pushes and great achievements are called for, but such pushes are not intended for all to participate in. If your path is already well defined and resonant, your challenge will be to remain focused and not be drawn away from your steady forward movement. If your path is as yet undefined, if your focus seems wobbly, or if you have not made a commitment to your self, then is this outer energy meant to influence you, to push you in the proper direction, to give you signs, and direct confrontation, so that your path may become more definite and your focus clearer.

During this time of energy of growth, determine your path. Stay focused on it. If you still seek the proper path then look for it with true spirit resonance as your compass. Allow the truth of your inner spirit to guide you, though this truth may challenge you to great change. Your calm knowing resonance will give you the answer to your questing self.

Know that calmness intimately now. Know that resonance, the true resonance of your inner spirit, separate from everything in your past, totally unique, and connected only to you. Disengage from your attachments in order to truly connect to this inner resonance, without judgments, without the burdens of others, or the past weighing on your conscience. Empty of the outside world so that you may connect with your own inner calm, and then answer your own question of resonance. Your way will be clearly shown to you if you seek it from this place of clean clear innocence that exists deeply inside you, without ego, without interferences from the outside world, and without fear and anxiety. That quiet, almost silent self awaits your resonance too.

Go innerly now and discover where this energy is directing you. Have you been greatly challenged lately? Seek the answer to your why question inside you, not outside you. What does this challenge mean to the inner me, not the outer me? Leave the outer you momentarily by the wayside as you journey into the inner you. This is the only place to seek the right answers and truly know if you are on the right path.

Watch the energy. It will seek to divert your attention. My advice, ignore it! You don’t need to engage it. Far better to leave it alone, and go on your inner journey. The outer energy will then shift from torturing you to aiding you as it creates an insular structure around you, providing protection from the storm around you. So, you choose. Engage it, or utilize it. I know this is all easier said than done, but your choice is of utmost importance to you and your growth, and that is why I warn and I encourage. It is my job to offer what I know, and it is my job to leave you the choice, but an informed one. So, good luck on your inner journey. Pretty funny, when you consider just how much that world offers and entices with. To think, that the ultimate goal is to calmly reject it all, and go innerly, is quite amazing to consider. But, that’s the truth of it. Find your resonance and stay your course.
