#100 Uncover

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

Uncover now all that keeps you hidden from the truth. The true self must be revealed in order for evolution to take place. There will be little movement unless you reveal yourself, first truthfully to yourself, and then fully to all around you. This does not mean in an entitled, whiny, big baby fashion, but in an adult fashion, fully accepting responsibility for your life, your adventures, your cares, and even your careless moves. Accept every aspect of your past, your journey thus far completed, and look forward to speaking only from your truth, from your center, and from your honesty. Do not hide the self under cover of shame, or resentment, or regret, or false promises. Do not keep the self silent under the covers of the big baby, of the big ego, but allow the true innocent self, the evolving self, to unburden now the heavy covers of old and be freed so that your innocence may lead you forward now.

Too many of you hide. Too many of you refuse exposure. But, for what reason? Ego or fear? Big babies have big egos and desire to stay under the covers, but evolving, mature beings quietly and courageously accept the truths of themselves and move on without flaunting their achievements, without screaming their woes, and without asking others to be responsible for them.

Are you not all adults? Are you not all eager to evolve and to connect with spirit, both your own and others around you? Well, advance a little further along your path today. Swipe off the heavy covers that keep you tucked into your old ways and step out into a new self. Ask for mature knowledge of the self, freed of the old covers, hiding your truth, and then see what truths are revealed. Accept what you learn about the self today, no matter how difficult or confrontational this revelation may be, and then discover that you are on a new path now, to the new you. Stand revealed before the self, see clearly inside and out, and accept and love your self for this journey you are on. Go forward now, standing firmly centered and balanced in this self, this truth seeking, uncovered self. It is the next step. Take it!

#99 Allow for Continuation

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

Allow for continuation. The flow of life continues on its merry way, yet do you seek to abandon it, run from it, hide from it, or alter it, when in reality all you need to do is acquiesce and flow with it. Direction is determined by choices made, and even in unclarity are you constantly choosing. There is no way of life that will bring you exactly what you desire without first presenting you with tests and challenges. Accept this, and do the work that the flow of life presents to you. Continue to progress, continue to flow; continue the process of living, choosing, and making your way forward based on spirit and spirit intent. Allow this to be your decisionmaker, allow your inner spirit to seek resonance and direction and you will do well on your journey.

For today must you sense the flow and go where it will take you. Do not swim against the current, for in so doing will you simply waste your energy. Flow with the current of your life and continue to make progress of spirit, even as life’s flow involves eddies, and undertows, and strong currents. Be aware, be judicious in your decision-making, but also be easy on yourself as you go with the flow.

I do not advocate resistance or too much consternation at this time, but instead keep your awareness alert to the signs along the way that when taken in to your knowing will aid you now and in the future. Use your memory of them in the future and you will make good use of your gathering knowledge. Let this be your lesson today: continue your progress, go with the flow of life, and give yourself permission to relax upon the current. It will take you where you need to go next. Then, if you have been observant during this time of continuance, will you know what to do next.

#98 Find Fertile Ground

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

Stay focused now with determination upon your path. There is little to keep you from it, for in reality is all else that pulls at you but distraction and of little real consequence. Focus on your growth and find richness in that aspect of life. Find fertile ground and nutritious fodder in spirit growth, and leave behind the wastelands that seek to pull you back to their brittle dryness.

There is now much upon that earth that dies and changes as a result of destructive behaviors and boring habits. Do not allow your resolve to be tested by such unworthy opponents. If you wish for excitement and challenge, look for it not in the past or in the unnecessaries of life, but look instead in the rich fertile lands of the inner spirit. That is where true challenge lies. That is where worthy opponents abide. That is where you will experience the greatest tests and the greatest exhilaration of life, of energy, and of true challenge, that will lead you to newness.

New lands await your discovery. New growth seeks tending. Your spirit seeks acknowledgement, acceptance, and nurturance. Where will you find this aspect of yourself? In your calm center, in your balanced stillness, in your calm knowing. This is where your new garden awaits you, inside you, rich, and fertile, and full of bounty. Seek this aspect of the self today and tend it properly; water it, cultivate it, and allow it to grow and blossom.

Swipe away from you the old distractions now and find your newness the biggest attraction now in your life. Focus on that and you will have begun a new garden. Do this for your self now and your self alone, for the self is desiring of this new life. Put aside now the old ways and accept the new self. This is good for today and every day. Seek the new fertile garden of the self.

#97 Proceed With Caution

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

Go forward now with trepidation as protection. Use awareness and inner knowing as guides, as I have said, but contemplate also every move you make, keenly aware that each step must be correct and keep you on your path. It is not enough to take action, but one must also take caution, and this is what I ask of you today, to proceed with caution. Do not get caught by the big baby, or the lost souls who wander into your territory of growth. Your goal must remain focused on proceeding as planned, otherwise will there not only be delay, but stopping, and this would not bode well. Delay must be avoided, but stopping must be sidestepped no matter what that may mean in your life. You may have to step over someone or something in order to proceed, and this you will find difficult but right, as your inner knowing will certainly guide you to do so for progress to be made and life to proceed, as it must.

Be not afraid, but do be alert to dangers and blocks on your path. Be alert, and be sensitive, but be focused on growth, not destruction, nor the possibility of decay. Stay on your path. This is good.

#96 Be Unavailable to the Undercurrents

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

Undercurrents of energetic resolution will seek to undermine your firm convictions. Do not get caught in those undercurrents though they may tug at your resolve. The solution to such tugging is to remain in calm centered stillness, in firm inner knowing, rather than drawn by old habits which will seek to disrupt the flow of your life. New life is what you seek. Do not waver from this conviction that now must remain your focus. The energy of the universe supports this, but nothing new will happen if your resolve wavers. Stay focused with intent and inner knowing as your stable guides. Remain intent upon your direction, with your path clearly in your sights. Do not look too far to the sides, or behind you, for that will only catch your attention and pull your focus from your new intended path. Life requires firm work and strong conviction. Your firmness must be grounded in your inner knowing in order to both serve and aid you on your journey.

Be unavailable to the undercurrents. Be aware of them and you will be able to navigate life, as you now should. Seek solace in knowing that you do bear the strength and conviction to stay focused, and that your evolution is granted if you remain firm in your convictions to both allow and accept the life you now live and the future you now seek. This is good. Stay focused.
