#319 You Are a Sexual Being

Anonymous asks Jeanne a question today.

Dear Jeanne,
In the bigger picture of us as energetic beings, what purpose or role does our sexuality play in regards to our evolutionary growth?

My Dear Reader, as a human being your sexuality is a defining factor in your life, your lives, and your evolution. As a sexual being are you guided through life and your many lives, constantly confronted with the challenges of the body, the vehicle of transport through that level of evolutionary progress. Your body, as your vehicle, must be attended to, and your progress is attached heavily to how you master it, learn from it, and eventually release from it. It is not only your vehicle, but your entry into understanding what is available to you and what comes next, for it is how you enter life and are presented with all of your challenges, your tests, and your master plan for doing your life upon that Earth; your many lives.

As your vehicle, your body offers many opportunities for growth. It provides many tests, and many of these, throughout your lives, will be of the sexual sort, posed for evolutionary purposes. For within the sexual aspects of the self lie many opportunities to present the challenges necessary for eventual evolution. To learn freedom from judgments; to allow the full expression of the human experience; to achieve innocent conjugal interconnectedness; and to present the self with all the challenges of procreation, and the learning of love and compassion, are at the root of sexuality. To understand your place in the universe stems from the fact that you began life as the result of sexual activity. You are a sexual being, and you will always remain so, for sexual energy is an example of the intensity of real energy as it is carried on into other lives. (Procreation is the means by which the evolutionary journey begins. In some manner, we are all a part of that process, either in being given the opportunity to take our own journeys, or allowing others the opportunity to take their journeys. —Jan)

Glimpses of exuberance, alive energy, channeled into one activity are presented during the sexual act, with the possibility of experiencing not only physical climax, but the opening of your energetic connection to infinity. (The opportunity to become a channel for another soul.) If you are not sexually energetic in this lifetime so will you be in another, or perhaps you have already been confronted with many aspects of sexual propensities in past lives. During your soul’s journey you can bet you have had, or will have, encounters with human sexuality, both your own and others. For human sexuality is not experienced alone in fulfillment, but only with another equally resonant human being.

That was my own dilemma, as Jeanne Marie Ketchel, to find my fulfillment as a sexual energy being. I did ultimately find it in my energy body, though I sought its fulfillment in my physical body. I did not need its resolution there though, for I had another more important issue to attend to related to sexuality and procreation. In a previous life had I lived the life of a prostitute, a well-known Madam, and during that lifetime did I not only explore, but fully accept my sexuality. But I also presented myself with the problem of procreation; the result of the sexual act, and eventually the act of abandonment of the child I had produced became the issue. As that issue remained unresolved in that lifetime, so did I carry it in to my life as Jeanne, who lived the life of a child who did not know her birth mother. The birth mother, the sexual being I had emerged from, gave me the mystery of my life to solve, and resolve. But ultimately, that issue emerged from my own sexual self in that previous life. So you see, your sexual self is a many-faceted being, and certainly needs to be listened to, attended to, and ultimately resolved.

In the annuls of restrictions set upon you by others, such as religious upbringing, parents, and the societies you live in, lie the challenges to be first overcome. But that is merely fluff compared to what lies within the self that poses the greatest barriers and ideas regarding who you are as a sexual being. All of you are sexual beings, have no doubt about that, and no denial of that truth.

Sexuality is a pure and basic aspect of the human form and function. How do you choose to approach that aspect of the self? I propose that you find your true inner self, the you who resides in truth and knowing, the one who does not abide by the outer rules imposed upon you by others, but only by the inner truths of innocence and purity of journey.

To live your life fully, must you allow yourself to be guided by that innocent you. Not the child, but the spirit self who loves, trusts, knows fully what it has to offer, and knows fully what is right to accept in a loving relationship. Deviant behaviors and undercurrents of evil intent are aspects of a spirit’s journey that must be encountered, but even such behaviors have the possibility of being diffused as innocence and truth emerge and take over.

Your evolutionary journey is comprised of: your soul’s selections for growth, the challenges presented, as well as the physical form you have elected to inhabit at each rebirth. There are no mistakes, no wrong selections, no wrong turns as you elect and begin your life. All aspects of who you are, including your sexual self, are totally legitimate and defining aspects of this journey you are on.

To fully recapitulate and discover who you are must the puzzle of the physical and sexual self be probed, and fully uncovered, or you will have residual aspects to attend to in a future life. To meet and express with another your full sexual innocence is the goal. To fully allow resonant sexual energy to express itself, merging with your own, is offering your self the opportunity to become whole, and wholly resolved as a human entity.

There are so many aspects of the human body that are repeatedly presented with necessity of attendance to; not only the sexual aspect, but body image, the desires and hungers of the body, the thoughts and confusions, the appetites and dislikes, the ego and the inner spirit; the tugs-of-war that are presented not only by the body, but by the outer world’s expectations and the proclivities of the societies you reside in. I can say this though, that as you recapitulate and do your inner work, so will you find that innocent sexual resonance, and discover that it has nothing to do with what you have learned about sex, or what is currently being taught or researched. It has only to do with pure expression of the innocent self. It can resolve in a most unusual manner, the question of your sexuality. But it must be an expression of your true innocent spirit as you tap into your pure energy. When that is released will you understand what it means to merge your sexual energy with another of like resonance.

I did present myself with quite a challenge as Jeanne Marie Ketchel. For although I did resolve many of my sexual issues in a previous life, so was I still presented with fulfillment of what comes after that, and that was, and is, the challenge of discovering true love and compassion for the self first and foremost, for only then will it be possible to achieve it on a universal level.

I propose, as always, that you continue your process of self-discovery by removing the outer world from your inner work. Do your inner work based on your inner truths of the self, freed of the judgments of others. Once you discover the true self, and begin to allow it to live your life, unafraid because it knows that everything is meaningful and meant to happen, so will you find fulfillment in all aspects of your life. Allow your true sexual being to emerge too. It may not be as you think it is now, while you still struggle with issues to be resolved. For many of you, your innocence will surprise you.

Live life to the fullest of your innocent potential, My Dear Reader. Seek not sexuality, but expression of your inner self as a sexual being, and in so doing merge the two, your inner you and your body you, the two most compatible aspects of your life. But perhaps you haven’t gotten to that place of mergence with the self yet? Don’t worry, you are fully capable of merging and, I think, most aware that you are just about to do so. Does that answer your question?

Good Luck, All of You Sexual Beings. You are going to find out who you really are only as you discover your innocence. It awaits, it holds all the answers to you and your full potential.

#318 This Energy is Good for Recapitulation Activities

Dear Jeanne,
What message of guidance do you have for us today? The energy feels stagnant and somewhat heavy.

This again is a time of retrospection, of spinning wheels, with the impression of little accomplished and little forward movement. Be patient. Be aware that this energy you call stagnant and heavy is good for recapitulation activities, for it allows for inward turning and contemplation. It is a time of questioning; a time of introspection; a time of forced contemplation of the self. At least that is how it should be utilized. Do not thwart its usage by focusing on what is wrong outside of you, or with others who may appear to confront you or pose a mirror for your issues. Do not look for excuses, or to blame for your own lack of focused energy and balance.

This effort of energy is offered quite cyclically for purposes of deep inner retrospection, seeing the self in the past and in the now, as well as deep introspection, the questioning of why, how, and when things will be different.

Well, things are already different. Do not doubt that. Your notice of the energy is quite profound. Your physical and energetic notion that something is slightly off, or slightly askew, both outside and inside you is a noticeable awareness of the energy that I speak of often. This energy now must be utilized, rather than pushed out of the way. Do not attempt to bypass it, but also be aware that you can get stuck in one place, wheels spinning, with the old scenarios, the old voices playing over and over again. Switch off the verbal abuse and the self-abuse that are no longer good for your evolving self. Dampen down the inner critics and the outer reflections of a perceived self who no longer exists. You are all changing now, and have been for a long time, My Dears. Do not get stuck in a little mud puddle that has appeared in your path. So what if you walked into it, unaware that it was so deep and sticky with old mud or even quick sand? You are aware of it now, so find your way back to solid ground.

But also be aware that you walked into it because you needed to. Question the self as to why? Why was it necessary to get caught in that place of muddy stagnancy? In order to move along, in spite of the fact that you are muddy and perhaps slowed in your progress, so must your focus remain on growth.

Do not sit down in that place of old. Do not get caught by the sucking attempt being made against your energy. Do not thwart your good progress by sitting down now in disgust or exhaustion. You will find that underneath all of that sticky mud is all the inner energy and drive that you need to leave behind all that is attempting to hijack you and feed off your energy.

Put your life in perspective again. Look at your progress, your step-by-step growth, each event in your life leading to this amazing place of now.

These times of retrospection appear quite often. Begin to recognize them by the dark energy that pulls at you and drags you down. Stay focused on the lighter inner energy of knowing that you are doing everything differently now. You are on a path of change, and that path, though it runs through muddy ground and beside swampy marshes, has plenty of stepping stones to get you over such areas of stagnancy.

Keep your energy above the fray, and your mind’s thoughts too. Keep your energy light, focused on how far you have come, and your solid intent to tackle what comes, as it leads you onward to further growth and change. Everything is meaningful. Find the meaningfulness in this energy of now and your own situation. Each one of you, My Dear Companions, are on an evolutionary journey. Keep that always in your focus. Keep your awareness always shifting back to your intent to grow and change and, with such clarity always present to guide you, will you affectively switch back to your path.

Ask for help when you need it, but don’t forget that such energy is delighted to feed off you. So ask your self: Am I being drained? Did I get caught? Then detach your self from the draining energy, and get back on track if the answer is yes. If the answer is no, then gather your energy that is being tempted outward and tugged at, and refocus on your path as well. For that is all you need in order to thwart the attempts of energy drains.

This time will not last too long. But be aware. Watch as the energy shifts again in a matter of days. I think you’ll notice quite a relief as it does. Until then, do the constant work on the self. It is your one and only place of retreat that is properly safe and protected from the outside energy. This is always the case, no matter what kind of energy is outside of you, good, bad, or indifferent. Focus on the work of the inner self is key to achieving advancement, growth, and change.

#317 There are No Mistakes or Errors as You Do Your Inner Work

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

Hesitate not in your efforts to understand the self and the energy I speak of so often, the possibilities of what it means to be energy, and the meaning of the surrounding energetic entities as well. Find your own place constantly. Find your resonance, your place of well-being and of comfort in your life and your work in order to most suitably function and reap the benefits of life upon that Earth.

I advise now diligent behaviors to achieve that which is most important to you. I advise adherence to your own knowing of what is right for you and what is not right for you. I also advise that you suspend your judgments of the self and others, and instead seek your inner truths as they are reflected in your judgments of others. I advise caution as you proceed, being aware of your old causes and habits that will seek to interrupt the flow of your work. But why do they do so? Perhaps they still have remnants to teach you, or even contain large chunks of unrecapitulated memory. Do not simply dismiss them, those old friends, for they hold many keys to your success; yet must you not get caught by them in the usual manner now, but instead treasure them as guides, showing you what you must work on.

There are no mistakes or errors as you do your inner work, for all occurrences of energy in life are meaningful and necessary in order for you to learn and advance upon your path. Your journey will not be completely understood if you do not dissect the constant habits of old that continue to appear, blocking your path. Are they really blocking your path? Or are they attempting to show you something that you have failed so far to grasp the meaning of? Signs and reminders of your issues will appear to guide you.

Do not be too hard on the self. Even as you are now being advised to remain strictly focused, so does that mean that you should watch for the signs all around you to aid you in determining where to go next and what issues are most prevalent. If you are too strict with the self so may you miss such guidance and such notes of reasonable direction. Allow your self to be guided. Allow the guidance to flow as you flow with new awareness that there is meaningfulness in everything, and that you are constantly being presented with signs that are significant to you alone, at this time in your life.

Abide by the new rules and new ideas for living a most openly guided and changing life*. You know that I stress simplicity and reconnection with the energy around you in order to discover who you truly are, and the reason for your being alive now during this time of transition for all who reside upon that Earth.

This is a time when all who live are being offered the opportunity to advance, to grow, and to evolve at a pace far exceeding most journeys. For now is this necessary, in order to resolve many issues outside of you and your own inner issues. You are part of a larger complex of issues, and your enlightenment is connected to greater issues of resolution of energy. Do not ever think that you are not of universal significance. All who exist in energetic form are significant aspects of evolutionary growth and change. You are part of the greater whole because you are the greater whole. Even as you struggle to resolve your own questions of wholeness and oneness, so be aware of the greater consequences of your energetic self. Your energetic self holds universal potential within, and that is the purpose of your connection to it, to discover what that means.

Keep that piece of the puzzle of the self firmly in your consciousness as you do your inner work of completion. You are meant and destined to fit into the larger universal picture of wholeness, and that is your ultimate reason for living and growing.

Contain your studies now to the self. Do not ponder too much that which awaits, for it will not be feasibly apparent in its meaning until you have understood the self and your own energetic composition, resonance, and truth. Find the mysteries of the self and resolve to accept and acknowledge that you are an energetic being of light, of good, and of the truth, unafraid to discover these aspects of the self, for they will free you to explore further.

The energy of now is energy that supports such growth and self-discovery. Turn inward, and turn the knowledge of this kind of energy inward and use it. With such inward turning will the outer mysteries also be revealed and understood. Good luck as you do your work. You are safe and protected. Do not work in anger, but work in wonder and in joy. Do not work in sadness or in pity for the self, but work in knowing that truth awaits and is the one and only desire that truly matters. Find your truths, and find your energy being.

#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!

Chuck Ketchel, LCSWR
