#244 Turn Your Outer Questions Inward

Dear Jeanne,
What is your message to humanity today?

Uncover your truths and reveal them to your self. For how can life progress and truly evolve if you have not uncovered all your secrets that you keep locked tightly away from the eyes of even your inner knowing? In order to truly evolve, and become a fully functioning citizen of an evolutionary world, must you know your self fully. But even more than just knowing, must you fully forgive your self in an evolutionary manner. This means, remove all judgments, all blame, and all ancient voices and ideas planted by outside forces that have sought to curtail your evolutionary growth by challenging you to notice just what it is that you must learn. Although I say, “curtail,” I do not mean this to imply that events in your life wish to keep you from your evolutionary potential, but “curtailing” you by pointing out where you must stop a while and do the work of the self.

This work of the self, this truth seeking of the self, is the only method by which one can truly evolve. Uncovering and discovering, digging for the buried treasure of the self, is the task that all are presented with. To live a life ignorant of the inner workings of the self is to live a selfish life, focused on self-gratification and external pleasures. Inner work, the deep work on truly studying and knowing the self is the ultimate unselfish act. To truly know the self fulfills not only that journey, but also allows for total release from pre-occupation with the self, so that energy and attention may eventually be paid to life as it unfolds around you, outside of you. For you will not fully understand the life outside of you, grasping all it offers, all the signs, and all the guidance, until you fully know the self.

So, as the energy continues to escalate, to grow again to a frenetic activity that harbors much possibility for change, for the opposites of both growth and destruction, remain balanced by continually turning inward, to examine the self in a new manner, guided by this energy. What does the outer energy point to in your inner work? What are you being guided to work on next as this energy of now does pressure upon all of you some aspect of the self that needs attention. Use the outer energy to your advantage by questioning the inner self as regards the energetic twists and flurries that arise. So what if there is devastation and calamity all around you? What does that really have to do with you? Find reciprocal experience in your own life, and in your inner response. Turn your outer questions inward, and question your deepest concerns upon the inner you. Find your inner resolutions. Advance beyond the stages of big baby, victim, and survivor, and truly mature into an evolutionary being, totally accepting of the reality of your life and your journey, every step meaningful and necessary.

Do not only forgive the self, but suspend all judgments of the self, and release the self from the judgments of others. Life is what it is. Accept your journey and move on now to truthful walking as your path unfolds. Make each new step a step in total acceptance of the utter truth of the self as an evolving being who has lived and learned, and is eager to continue doing so. Acquiesce to the truth, and you will discover that your inner you will love you for that, as you make room for the voice of truth to speak to you now more clearly, and allow it to guide you. In this manner will your journey in that outer world also begin to be guided more fully as, energetically speaking, will you allow a greater response from outside of you to be acceptable and available.

Do not hide from your truths. Every day do they knock at the door. Do you hear them knocking? It is time to open the door and greet them. They are but old friends who have waited all these many years for your invitation to join you on the amazing journey that is your life.

#243 String Your Necklaces

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

Do not hesitate to procure your own place in that world. All who live there now do have a purpose to conduct; whether it be brief or long lived, so is it related to the journey of the soul. In order to accomplish the goal now set forth is it necessary to acquiesce to the journey being presented, for all events are meaningful and prepared for your experience.

Do not hold back from that which you must do. Determine your path, and stay focused on growth and evolution of spirit, that which resides inside you, and urges you to have life, and to find your ultimate reason for that life. Continue your progress at every step by looking always for the signs, and the experiences that are meant for you, and you alone. Learn to interpret them for their meaning in your soul’s experience in this life, putting it all together, a piece at a time, as it leads you always toward wholeness, clarity, and completion.

In order to maintain your stable, balanced journey, make your way forward now with your new awarenesses in your pocket, handy at all times, so that as you go, so do you not miss the signs and the lessons. Remember always that you are a journeyer, seeking clarity, and seeking also the meaning of just this life you now live in the context of all your previous lives. Resolve to complete the journey of your soul during this life time, finding your long string of lives neatly strung, as pearls on your necklace of experience. And finally, connect both ends of it together, around your neck, your life times at that level of reality finally completed, fully known, fully understood, and fully owned, so that your next life may evolve to a new level of awareness.

It is time to sweep up the remainders of lives lived; time to put together all the pieces so that your time upon that earth may be completed, and your slot made available to the next seeking soul. It is the ultimate challenge to be the last life at that Earth bound level. It is the greatest achievement to complete that cycle of living. String your necklaces. Complete your tasks within that realm so that you may fully evolve beyond that heavy place, and begin a new journey with your soul complete; your lives tied together, friends joined as one; and your new life with your larger soul group made available to you when your work is done.

This is possible to achieve. Even if you do not see your self as yet evolved, so is it possible to gain in awareness and, with effort and training, maintain it through the time of transition. Work hard, My Dear Ones, to understand who you really are. Find your calm and balanced place upon that Earth. Discover the meaning of that journey you now take, and with keenly honed awareness accept your possibility for continued growth. All of these messages seek to aid you on that journey. That is all I attempt, to offer guidance, so that those who reside upon that planet may have the opportunity to evolve into new life, with awareness and clarity in tact, and knowledge of a job well done.

Find another pearl, and attach it to your necklace today. See your journey more clearly as each day offers you the opportunity to understand something new. Allow your self to accept the possibilities I speak of, and open your self to a new way of experiencing life. It is only good that is being offered, and only refreshing new life to aid you in your work there. See what happens today!

#242 The Golden Seeds of Change Have Been Planted

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have any comments regarding the political scene in America, especially after yesterday’s “Super Tuesday” vote?

As you know, I am not politically involved in the United States, but I am totally energetically involved. That being said, I do not foresee much change on the horizon as of yet, politically speaking. There is much to be discussed and dismantled before real change can happen, but the golden seeds of change have been planted, and energetically speaking is that for the greater good of that country, and the whole world. For the United States is not an isolated individual, but an outspoken, boisterous sympathizer of none, mostly self-centered, and concerned with its own prosperity. It was built upon such a construct, so it is through no fault that such selfishness does continue to exist. Necessary at its beginnings, now is it essential that its protectionism turn to globalism in a new way of acceptance. The seeds of acceptance have been planted, but there is much work still to be done across that vast land that will require diligent cultivation, and weeding out of the invasive ideas and radical influences that will seek to poison the new growth that seeks only to pass that country into new life.

So, on an energetic level, is there now a new exuberance and hope, and this inflames not only possibility for the man and the woman of difference to step forward and begin a revolutionary turn toward new life, but it also stirs up the devouring flames of fear and greed. So, see what happens.

How can we who are agents of change make an energetic difference?

Stir up your own energetic intent, learning to utilize your ability to connect and interconnect, both practically and energetically, as I have been speaking about. Use your abilities to promote change, whatever they may be; and use your intent to stir up the energy of change and of good, good for America, but also good for the entire human race. Ask for intentions of energetic good, centered on evolutionary growth, and the right choices will be made in the future elections.

Can you make a prediction of who will win?

As of yet, is there but an inkling of possibility that does not yet have much energy behind it that is conducive to truth telling, for there is much negative action behind the stirrings of hope upon that land. Do not look so hard at what is presented before you on your TV screens, for those images are not the truth. There exists behind your candidates other processes that kindle hope, but do serve the opponents greatest wishes. Who is really urging change that is so drastic as a black man in the White House? Who is urging that a woman represent that masculine climate? Look deeper, My Friends, and avoid failure of desire. Continue the fight for change, but beware of the bigger political machine that has only begun to pull out its weapons. It could get nasty. But it is not what you may think based on what you see presented before you. All of your candidates, in all parties, have awareness of darkness behind them, but even they do not know the full extent of the power that seeks office. The truth of that is yet to be revealed, and may never come to light if those golden seeds of change are not cultivated and allowed to sprout. Beware the herds of cattle that may be unleashed over the fields of newly sown crops of gold, for they will threaten, with great trampling of hope, and devastation, while the white man sits with clean hands.

“Dirty hands” has two meanings. In one camp, does it mean hard work in the fields, actually getting down on bended knees, and working hard to cultivate the golden seeds that hold such promise. On the other side, do “dirty hands” mean staying clean at all costs, yet performing the deeds that will take apart the prosperity so heartily worked and tended by those others with the mud of truth, and the reality of growth, upon their hands and knees.

So what else do you suggest we do?

Use the power of intent in the ways that suit you best. I suggest meditation, prayer, and individual methods of sending forth messages of change wrapped in only truth and goodness. Stay away from negatives, focusing on a future of enlightenment for that great country so full of global possibility and potential. I do not consider negative talk even remotely helpful. Avoid negative discussions of the opponents. Instead, give full force intent to the chosen ones.

[*See below where I asked a follow up question later, when I was coding this message, because it seemed necessary after this bold statement about the chosen ones. -Jan]

And what should we be doing on a practical level?

Get involved in whatever movement suits your temperament. I know from my own life upon that Earth, and as a member of the population of America, that there are many suited to energetically become politically involved. I institute, that now it is time to become politically evolved, if that is your personal intent. If you are considering politics in your future, now is the time to evolve into that energetic sweep that does offer the possibility for evolutionary change in the political framework of that great country. Do not hesitate, but embrace that life for positive change, with evolution as the word of choice. Others who have no political urging inside must find their inner spirit’s calm reading of the situation, and determine their course from there.

I suggest, to all good citizens of that planet, that now is the time to become supremely wary of the televised method of communication. Even the procurers of good will not truly be represented by the media. Look far behind their words, as they are not allowed to say what they really wish to say. It is not acceptable to utter the bare truths, but it is utterly desired. So listen hard for the truths behind the messages, and may you all cast your votes, when the time comes, for the candidate who does dare the most. Other than that, I can only encourage participation, continually, on an evolutionary path. The energy is available for this path to open for all, individually, culturally, environmentally, politically, and on a national, religious, and worldwide level.

Seek change, cultivate the golden seeds, root out the truth, deflect the false prospectors, and keep the channels open to hear and speak only that which is truly necessary, positive, and evolutionary, on all levels.

Is there any other message?

Politics is not my thing, as I have said, but it is energetically supported, for it has the potential to cause much needed shift. And where great shift is necessary is there backing from energetic groups, even as my group does work for the evolution of the soul, and there are environmental groups seeking change, so is there energetic group support on a political level throughout the world. Look for signs of this, and you will begin to notice that they are every where, a strength that seeks reciprocal participation. So those who choose political action will be well-guided, but awareness of such connection is essential. So spread that message, all you Readers, and Thinkers, and Heart-centered Beings, and then see what happens. Political waves of energy abound, and they resonate with many backers of the ethereal sort!

*And who are the chosen ones?

They are the least expected, chosen for the truths they seek to point out, yet are they still at a loss for the right words of truth. They must become more known, for as yet do they hide too much behind the media, who does not allow them to breathe the fresh air of truth in the faces of man. They have been kept quietly breathing, unable to fully exhale all that they wish to say. The political machine does control too much for this to clearly be revealed as of yet. Look closely for who breathes freely, and speaks equally freely. Who dares the most from this point onward?

#241 Once Again: The Interconnectedness of All Things

Dear Jeanne,
What would you like to discuss today?

I would like to bring the discussion back, once again, to the interconnectedness of all things, for life upon that earth does, energetically, require an understanding of this. Life requires awareness of this interconnectedness in order for energy exchange, and growth, to have impact. Each of you is responsible for utilizing your own energy to the best of your abilities, and to gain in understanding that you are not only chosen to participate in this time frame, but also expected to learn how to expand your energetic concerns beyond the self.

As you know, I do authorize much self-study, but this must be in the form of recapitulation, with the intent to grow, and not self-study that keeps you bound to old ideas, and to self-regrets, and negative places. Self-study must include looking outward for connection with other energies that are compatible with your own, both on the personal, nitty-gritty level of life upon that Earth, as well as seeking guidance and connection outside of that so real environment you call life.

In so doing, by looking beyond the self in this manner, but still remaining true to your own energetic configuration, do you begin to connect with all other energies. By gaining an understanding of how you, individually, do connect with your spirit guides, or simply with your awareness of all that is being presented to you on a daily basis, so do you begin to gain awareness of all energies and the interconnectedness of all things.

Do you see people beginning to understand this and explore other energetic possibilities, or do you think it has not really been understood?

There is great enthusiasm for this idea of interconnectedness, and there is great desire for it as well, yet do people forget to slow down and look for it in their own lives. The energy now upon that Earth is an energy of bigness, of over-consumption, and of greed, and this has become the norm. But understanding interconnectedness does not come in big ways. It comes first in small rivulets, in tiny filaments, in strings of suggestion and awareness that find resonance, and eventually those tiny waves of energetic intent grow into a whole network of awareness that is far greater in content than any one big explosion of awareness ever could be. A large energetic blip soon disappears from awareness, while small daily blips build, both in intent and also in creating knowing and certainty.

So, we have not quite “gotten” it yet?

Not yet, but do not become concerned with that insight on my part, but instead stay focused on the awarenesses in your own life in order to build your clarity. Read the signs that arrive for their greater meaning in your life; and do not, above all, dismiss them, for their content holds up until the next sign appears. Do not forget what was recently shown, but carry it with you, and take it out, and examine it beside the next sign, and see where those lead you next.

By understanding the interconnectedness in your own life, by looking for your signs that seek to guide you, will you gain an understanding of how all things are connected, and how all things seek to guide you in a new direction. Understanding of the greater connectedness of all this is then but the next step. Start with the small signs in your own life. Then begin to see how your own life is connected with all else.

You are there for a reason, a purpose, and this you are seeking clarity on, but it is connected with all else, and that you must understand fully in order to truly know your reason for being. To seek meaningfulness in life requires an awareness of the interconnectedness of all things, and all energies. Look for your own signs that come to guide you, and seek meaning in everything in order to gain clarity of the self, and the true place you are being asked to inhabit upon that Earth.

Resolve today to become an understudy of the signs that appear outside of you, and study your own resonance and understanding of them related to your journey and what you are being shown about the interconnectedness of all energies. You will soon find that you are not alone in your endeavors, for many know that it is now the only way to go. Life upon that Earth is changing, greatly. Don’t you see the signs? Don’t you understand that everything is leading you to discover who you truly are? And then are you also being asked to look outside of your self, to the greater energetic network that interconnects you with all energies. Pretty interesting, huh?

#240 Learning by Experience

Dear Jeanne,
What can we expect this week, energy-wise, and what lessons should we be learning today?

Do not focus so much on the lessons, but keep your focus forward on your gathering journey. In this manner will your lessons be assimilated and utilized immediately, even as each day is the energy available to be utilized.

Can you explain that further?

As always, is the journey and how you participate in it of utmost importance. The lessons you learn daily become part of your practice in life’s participation as you bump up against them and discover what they mean. But do not simply go looking for lessons. In doing that would you miss the other important aspects of your journey. Allow your lessons to come to you, but accept them as necessary and immediately important for progress and you will discover what I mean when I speak of assimilating your lessons into life.

A person who is always studying and looking for the lessons may miss the ones that are most important. A studious, distracted lesson-seeker may in fact slow down his journey as he forgets to look all around him for the lessons being offered. Not all lessons are in books. Not all lessons have yet been discovered. Though it is practical to go looking for the wisdom of others, so is it equally practical to allow for experience to present you with you own greatest lessons. For as you learn and study do you gather knowledge of the experiences of others, but how is that significant if you do not participate in life by having your own experiences?

This energy now upon that earth, this energy of change, does ask for participation on a new level, a level of acceptance that has not, as yet, become the norm. Acceptance of experience alone, based on your own inner knowing and clarity, is being presented now as a new manner of learning. This learning by experience involves letting go of all the old rules, of dismantling many of your old ideas of what is possible, and of opening now to the flow of energy that does seek to guide and to enhance your life upon that earth.

Open up to the lessons being presented to you in your own life in a different manner. Take your heads out of those books for a while now, and allow for a total envelopment of inner spirit in experience of the energy of now. Allow your self to have an experience of pure energy today, and you will begin to open the doors to a new way of learning that requires energetic participation. Stop looking so hard for it, and just experience it. The energy of experience is all around you. You just need to begin noticing it, and finding your own inner response to it.

Let go a little today, just a little, so you are able to taste the energy of change, and see where it asks you to go. You might be surprised by what you learn. But remember, it will be your own experiential lesson, and please, trust it for what it teaches. For it seeks only to open new doors to energetic possibilities, so that you may grow and evolve during this time of great change.
