Messages From The Ancient Ones – Healing with the Living Light of Love

When you turn a light on in a dark room, the darkness vanishes.

So, too, when you turn the True Light on in your life, darkness vanishes.

There may still be darkness in the corners of a room where boxes or furniture may obscure the light. So, too fears and worries, shame and regret can obscure the Light of Love from your life.

To bring Light more fully into your being, look at those places that obscure the Light. Look at them with Love. Not as a way to beat yourself up or inflict more shame or regret, but rather noticing the lesson learned while releasing the pain.

Don't see the lesson? Perhaps the lesson was not yours to learn. Perhaps you were the teacher. Sometimes the pain is darkest when we bring hard lessons for others to receive. It may even feel as if the punishment is yours. Perhaps not. If you cannot find the lesson to be learned, bathe the situation in Light and Love. In confidence release the pain and suffering knowing that if there truly is a lesson, it will appear after the pain has been relinquished.

Please release the need to suffer about it. Do you feel as if suffering makes the pain worth it? No. Pain and suffering are optional. Your experience is no less significant viewed from a place of wholeness and grace than viewed within the walls of suffering.

As the Living Light of Love washes over old wounds, they release naturally in and of themselves. They are not constructed of light. Light washes the suffering away, if you allow the Light to reach these obscured places.

Once released, energy opens up for you. Renewed energy that had been used to hold the darkness in place. Rejoice in this!

We rejoice with you!

Campaign to Refrain from Disdain

Phil and I noticed the other day that we had somehow developed a tone of distain with each other. I hadn’t been feeling well and he’d been really feeling the pressure of deadlines at work. Whatever the cause, we didn’t like it and we made a pact to refrain from distain.

Distain is that nasty sharp tone of voice that cuts deeply. The words may be harmless in and of themselves. “What?” is an appropriate way to seek additional clarification. However, that same “What?” spoken with a silent “you worthless piece of scum” energy projected in the query harms both the one speaking and the one hearing.

It’s like a paper cut. Not very deep, yet it hurts like heck and it continues to hurt for days afterward. If experienced again, slices deeper and stings like crazy. People don’t die from a paper cut, but the sting reminds one that they are no longer ‘safe” with that person. When we speak with that tone of disdain, we sow the seeds of fear and mistrust. We are, in actuality, asking the other person to mistrust us!

Why do we speak in that tone of disdain? It’s a learned response to frustration. It’s meant as a simple nudge to push someone to please us. We want a certain thing a certain way, and we want it right now. Maybe stressors elsewhere make us feel impatient with the ones we love. Maybe we just get full of ourselves. Maybe we just are functioning barely within our limits. The outcome remains the same. Pain and mistrust ensues.

Energetically, here’s what happens. That tone of disdain cuts right through the energy field surrounding a person and slices directly into their heart-space. This slice is quick and sharp, so it doesn’t feel—well, terrible—just a slight “urk” feeling. Pulled up short. This opens the energy field and the heart-space. Positive energy leaks out while the disdain edges in. The disdain is like poison. Without realizing it, the receiver responds in distain as well. Both people leak positive energy while both people “fester” with this disdain poison all the while sending it back and forth.

We feel unsafe and teach/reinforce that unsafe feeling. The really sad thing is that we speak this way to ourselves!!!

So, how do we refrain from disdain? Notice it when it happens. Recognize it is not about you! Release the disdain, and heal yourself immediately with inner words of truth and kindness. (Like, I love, honor and respect myself. I appreciate all that I do in the time and way I do it.)

In time, if another person has spoken with disdain towards us, we can speak calmly to the other person. Perhaps we can let them know (lovingly as we can) that the way they said a thing kinda hurt. They may or may not get it. They may or may not be able to change. Their words of disdain are evidence of their own pain of frustration. Notice and let it go.

When we notice that we’ve spoken in a disdainful way, we apologize immediately! Even to ourselves! We restate what we intended to say in a clear, non-emotionally charged tone of voice. EVEN IF WE FEEL THEY (we) DESERVE our disdain, they don’t. No one deserves disdain. It’s that disdain poison talking. Stop listening to that voice.

We get to speak our truth clearly with a neutral voice. This heals us and offers healing to the one listening. Speak to the heart. The heart hears and feels what is being said and how it is spoken. Let’s let our words heal.

I wonder if we could start a campaign to refrain from disdain this year? Could we speak clear truth? I wonder what a difference this could make in our world? Let’s give that clear voice a try!

And Then…

After Last Week’s message at The Divine Fellowship, I was asked to transcribe some of our notes for ease of use. So, here ya go!

As I was sending out an email to the church membership, I came to the part where I make a note of the upcoming message title. Nothing had come to me as yet, so I began to ponder all the things that would be good to talk about. I heard, “And then . . .” and continued pondering other topics. I heard, “And then . . .” again, and dismissed it again, because I had no idea what that would be about. I heard, “And then . . .” again and laughed out loud while typing that in as the message title. I realized I would be given the information as the week unfolded. There have been rare occasions that the message information was delivered as I walked from the back of the sanctuary to the podium. They’ve never let me down! (God, Angels, Spirit Guides – whatevers – lol)

So, as the week progressed I decided to get out my trusty link to Bible Gateway where you can look up verses quickly. I typed in “and then” and hundreds of passages popped up. I read a lot of those and discovered that whenever the Bible used the phrase “and then” it referred to a moment of change! Profound change.

So, I argued with God that this would be a better message for the first of the year. I was reminded by an astrology friend later in the day that the solstice was coming up and it was a great time for change. Sheesh. I guess God might have a better plan than me.

So as I considered the “and then,” along with the Solstice just days away, I realized that there was a wonderful opportunity to use this time and this method to really create chance in our lives for good!

So, the process is this. . . . State your current struggle as if someone else was having it in the past tense. She was overwhelmed. He was worn out. She was fearful. He was alone.

And then, add “and then” to the phrase. She was overwhelmed, and then . . . He was worn out, and then . . . She was fearful, and then . . . He was alone, and then . . .

And then, add a possible new insight or action. She was overwhelmed, and then she found her center. He was worn out, and then he reclaimed his power. She was fearful, and then she became aware of her strength.

Instant shift!!!

Then say the “And Then” statement to yourself morning and evening until the Solstice when it changes to a personal truth statement. I was overwhelmed, and then I found my center. If you can repeat this to yourself for 21 days, true change happens! I hope you give it a try!

Here are a few “And Then” statements for you to choose from. Maybe more than one will apply to your current situation. Notice how you can instantly shift as soon as you say the “And Then” statement. There is Divine Power attached to this! You are not alone in your journey and this is a tool gifted directly from Source just this last week for you to use!

She was overwhelmed, and then she found her center.

He was worn out, and then he reclaimed his power.

She was fearful, and then she became aware of her strength.

He felt alone, and then he connected to Source (and went fishing)

She felt betrayed, and then she found her truth.

He felt full of self-doubt, and then he woke up (awakened).

She felt judged and in turn judgmental, and then she found compassion.

He felt hopeless, and the he saw a glimmer of Light (The Light found him!)

She felt anxious, and then she realized her worth.

He felt full of uncertainty, and then he tapped into Source and was filled with “knowing”.

She felt unimportant, and then she realized her worth.

He felt angry, and then he realized the story he was telling herself. And then he laughed.

You don’t have to know HOW any of this will happen. By being willing and open, things shift and you just automatically find your way into that new state of being. We tell ourselves things that are not true. We hear them in our head and we believe them. Most of the stuff we say to ourselves is just rubbish impressed upon us from events and circumstances long passed.

These “And Then” statements allow our brain to open to new possibilities . . . AND THEN our heart finds the way.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – An Awakening Moment

As you bring your awareness into each moment you can truly choose who you will become and what you will do. If you allow yourself to get triggered by old experiences in new clothing, you merely re-invest in the old, unpleasant experiences. By noticing that you have become triggered, you can see the trigger moment for what it is . . . An awakening moment.

In that moment of awakening, you can ask for assistance. Divine Assistance. Angelic Assistance. Intuitive Assistance. This assistance will allow you to see and perceive this triggered moment for what it truly is . . . an awakening moment.

In that awakening moment, you harness the power to change. Change who you are. How you respond. What you say. In that moment of awakened power, no trigger can steal you energy or steal your true power. As an empowered one, you can see and perceive things clearly, without the need to struggle or be right. As you bask in this form of power, you notice that you have no need to discredit another or shame yourself - or be shamed. You can see the situation for what it truly is . . . a blessed opportunity towards freedom.

As you awaken in this way, you can offer to Divine Source, the inner conflict and trauma that no longer serves. This, too, allows you the opportunity to explore spiritual freedom.

Though physical ordeals occur naturally as a course of being human, the trauma and drama minimizes and your soul soars above all conflict.

With this freedom comes great serenity and greater peace. This fills you with spiritual bliss. We hope you fall into it with great joy!

We shall see you there!

Bring In The Light

I recently did a message at The Divine Fellowship entitled Bring in the Light. There were a few highlights that I wanted to share with you.

We spend a lot of energy and effort fearing what might happen. We spend our energy replaying old events in our minds hoping to understand then or protect ourselves from being harmed in that same way again. This generates anxiety. The fear and anxiety feed the darkness, and yet, there are things that we can do and do well that causes the darkness to diminish.

When you take time to meditate . . . darkness fades.

When you give a friend or stranger a compliment . . . The Light glows brighter.

When you laugh (genuinely find joy) . . . The Light amplifies.

When you Pray for yourself or another . . . The Light shines.

When you are brave and try something new . . . The Light intensifies.

When you allow someone to be where they are – even if it’s not where you want them to be . . . Light beams.

When you let someone go ahead of you in line . . . The Light blazes

When you notice a sunrise or a sunset . . . the Light radiates.

When you snap a photo for a stranger . . . the darkness scatters.

When you welcome differences while others exclude and ridicule . . . the darkness slips away.

When you tell someone how they’ve impacted your life . . . darkness folds in on itself.

When you are gentle when others are abrupt and impatient . . . darkness yields.

When you refrain from anger when cut off in traffic . . . darkness shatters.

When you forgive someone or take responsibility for your own actions . . . darkness scatters.

When you hold sacred ground for someone who is suffering . . . darkness evaporates.

When you speak kindness when others spew hatred and fear . . . darkness is VANQUISHED!

Darkness cannot prevail. Darkness fears YOU and the Light of Love that abides within you! Be the Light that you already are!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Child-like Wonder

We ask that you find a moment to rekindle you child-like wonder. All the hurry and rush that this time of year seems to require, drains energy from you. The very thing you strive to recapture eludes you!

Child-like wonder takes only a moment and generates incredible energy for you to use in your day-to-day efforts.

Remind yourself of the awe of watching a spider spin its web on a bright summer day. Your curiosity caused you to really look at something closely. You didn't judge the spider as good or bad, you just noticed it with all your attention.

Noticing a spider now might send you running for a fly swatter or someone less timid to eliminate it from your awareness. So choose something more pleasant to your awareness. Choose to notice something that pleases your eye and your heart.

A favorite person? A favorite place? A steaming cup of warm liquid? Clouds rolling by?

Notice how easy it has become to attach a judgment upon any of these things. That person has flaws. That place is far away. That liquid cost too much. Those clouds may bring rain or snow or gloom.

Release the judgement! Just notice and observe.

As you notice without judgment, you become aware of so much more! This awareness heightens as you increase your ability to enjoy the noticing! Can you allow yourself to just breathe and be?

You will find us here.

Bedazzled

Do you remember the Bedazzled gizmo? You could apply sparkly’s to anything and everything.

Today I’m feeling a bit Bedraggled.

Weird dreams, aches and pains that didn’t really keep me awake, but were in the realm of awareness all night. Even coffee didn’t sound appealing. (I know! Right!?!)

So, as I muddled though the morning and typed out today’s message from the Ancient Ones, I began to see the honey-like light pouring down into me. I took a bit of a break and suddenly found myself cleaning the bathroom. Hadn’t planned on doing that, just found myself doing that task with a new essential oil cleaner I’d just mixed up.

Now, I’m not sure if it was the new cleaner making an old task “fun” (cleaning the bathroom = fun?!?) or if it was the energy influx, but I can guarantee you it wasn’t will power or determination. I hadn’t even really considered taking on that task.

So, if you haven’t read the Ancient Ones message yet, I strongly encourage you to do so! I’m feeling much better – effortlessly!

I still have a ways to go to being my normal, joyful self, but I’m a long ways from where I was an hour ago. Just because I felt bedraggled, doesn’t mean I cannot become bedazzled! And I don’t even have to work on it. No “efforting” involved. No whining involved. No suffering involved.

Allow.

It’s that simple. Even for the little stuff. It’s not the end of the world nor a huge tragedy. I just was running low on energy. By asking, allowing, and visualizing that warm, glowing golden light to flow down into my soul, I’m regenerating/rejuvenating/restoring my energy fields.

My normal routine would have called for a stern talking to myself about what I’m doing wrong. You can imagine how productive that usually is. . . not.

Where ever you are today . . . How ever you are today . . . Take a moment for yourself. Rather than using that time to beat yourself up, how about an energy break instead? Ask for assistance. God (Divine Source, Higher Power, All That Is . . .Whatever) sends this golden light to you. See this energy flowing into your being. I noticed it flowing into every cell of my body. I don’t know where the soul resides, so I just allowed the energy to flow where it wanted to go. As it flowed in, it swept away exhaustion and the bedraggled energy.

I know it will be wise to rest today. I have a sense that clarity will come to me to assist me in shifting even more. I feel I can rest with peaceful and gentle energy rather than self-loathing and bitter reproach. I bet I rest much better as a result.

How will you use this golden energy?

If you want to share your results, you can e-mail me at janice@janicelynch.com. I’d love to hear from you!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Bringing you Assistance

We hear you as you request help and assistance.

You need not be in times of distress to receive assistance. We are happy to help even in the little things when things are going well. It is easier for our assistance to come to you when you are outside of the stress zone. Your stress sets up an energy barrier that we must break through to bring to you what your heart requires.

This is not to say that we cannot hear you in times of stress - rather we hear you and rush to intercede and your energy of distress slows us down a bit. Bringing calm into your awareness allows our energy to break through more quickly. We can bring you additional peace and calming along with the guidance and assistance you seek.

We tell you this so you will recognize that the delay in bringing you assistance is not our unwillingness nor our inability to assist.

Nor do we wish for this to burden you unnecessarily. Just know the help is coming. The more relaxed you can allow yourself, the faster you will sense it, know it and implement it.

Are you wondering how to slip into a place of ease when distressed? Sometimes humanity believes that if they are not stressed the event is not important. The more distressed one becomes, the more importance you give an event.

Not necessarily so! Your physical experience of an event may be profound and yet no one around you would know because you retain the state of calmness even in a stress-filled event.

There is a peace that extends and exists beyond mortal understanding. This peace comes from Divine Source and is accessible to you at any time. We ask you to call upon this peace when distressed. It feels like warm honey pouring over and into your soul. Sweet and comforting. (not sticky - this energy does not slow you down.)

This gives you clarity of thought that escapes the distressed mind. This grants you awareness of opportunities and options that escape the distressed mind. This brings you assistance from the Etherial Realms immediately.

Angels of Peace bring this to you upon request. Divine Source pours forth directly to you. Actually, these are already flowing in times of distress, yet the troubled mind blocks this comfort.

This is not to say that your troubles are not important. Give these events the attention they are due. Attention of awareness rather than attention of distress.

This takes practice. The moment you notice you are distressed is the awakening moment. In that moment, request peace and receive not only peace, but clarity and assistance!

We walk with you in this.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Words hold great power

Words change the course of history and the course of a person's life. Words also dis-empower and crush the spirit of a person.

Notice what words flow from your subconscious into your awareness. Those old words or judgments may have been bestowed upon you by your ancestors through generations. You have the power to release that and take on a new aspect of your own choice.

We ask that you find a word or phrase to focus upon as you go throughout your day/week. Seek for a word that holds inspiration rather than destruction. Sacred Pathway. Divine Timing. Sacred Observer. Bless and be Blessed. New Opportunity. Sacred Surrender (not giving up, just giving up the struggle or striving). Heart's Desire. Sacred Visions.

Seek a word or phrase that generates wellness rather than illness. I'm Improving. Each day is better and better. New Day - New Way. Strength in Grace. Breakthrough.

Can you feel the power of these phrases?

Now you can utilize these phrases to create a safety zone in your awareness. Any words or phrases spoken in judgment that contradict these words/phrases can be dismissed or rejected more easily. If you already have a soft spot for being judged, you may need to be more diligent in speaking your power words to yourself more often.

What happens here is two-fold. One, you generate a new energy field around yourself which requires you and the world around you to respond to you in a new and different way. Second, you instantly recognize words/phrases either spoken in your own mind or spoken to you that conflict with your chosen power words. This gives you the freedom and power to reject the energy embedded in the unwanted words or phrases.

Merely restating your power phrase sends energetic waves that disrupt and diminish the negative words/thoughts/phrases that come your way. At the same time, the restating of your power phrase re-sets your energy field again and re-harmonizes you to the energy you choose to manifest.

Your words hold great power. Use them wisely.

Fire-in-the-soul

It’s time to replace my keyboard for my computer. After completing two books utilizing the same keyboard I can hardly read the keys. All of the lettering except Enter; Shift; Backspace and the letters X, Z, W, P and Q are worn off. Nothin’ but black. If I don’t rely upon muscle memory, I couldn’t type a thing!

Funny thing is, we have TWO replacement keyboards ready to hook up. One is wireless and one is not. I didn’t realize we had either replacement until I cleaned the office a few weeks ago. They had been buried under workshop handouts and unfinished projects.

With those handouts filed and the projects either finished or removed, it’s time to decide!

Wireless I could move around a bit. Wired I could retain status quo. I don’t think I really care. Therein lies the issue. My apathy restricts my moving forward. Granted, I only need to look at the letters on the keyboard if I’m typing in an unfamiliar password or something, but I’m sure Phil doesn’t type by memory like I do. When we had repairmen in to work on the internet, they were totally lost!

I think I’m waiting for something to fire me up to require a decision. So, in the meantime, I’m deciding not to decide. That’s okay, too.

I’ve got another book simmering on the back burner. I’m not quite fired up about that yet. Bits and pieces get my interest going, yet I’m just not fired up about it.

My “fire-in-the-soul” for now, is focused on the Intuitive Tarot Mastery and Certification Worth-shops I’m teaching. Love that! Love to see people understanding it and getting excited about it, too.

I get to be fired up about somethings and not fired up about other things. Self-judgment would tell me I’m bad for that. I can let that judgment go. I get to allow myself to live wide open about one subject and ho-hum about another. (Times past I would have expected myself to be fired up about everything all the time. Sheesh! Glad I can let that go.)

This time of year some people are really fired up about Christmas decorating. Phil and I don’t decorate our house . . . mostly because I don’t enjoy the un-decorating that happens in January . . . though in truth, I really decorated the house once a few years back and it was beautiful and perfect! Since then, it’s been – been there done that, no thank you. Some people think I’m terrible for not decorating the house. I’m okay with that. It’s just that they are all fired up about the decorations and want me to have that same feeling. I don’t. It’s okay that they do.

Conversely, I’ve got some new ideas for decorating the church that I’m pretty fired up about. Go figure!

So, how does one find the “fire-in-the-soul” about life? It’s pretty easy to see where the fire isn’t, true? I can easily see what I’m NOT fired up about – computer keyboards – decorating the house for the holidays. Trying to install a fire there is pretty fruitless and frustrating. If someone

wants you to get all fired up about something and you are not, let it go. Allow them to be where they are and bless their efforts as best you can by being supportive and caring. (Wouldn’t want to dampen their fire! That’s not fair! Build them up and stoke their fire so they can really shine! That blesses you both!)

Then, take some time to consider what fires you up. Where do you put your energy? Are you allowing duty to drain your energy so there is no fire left? Might want to remember to bring balance into your world.

Usually, anything creative generates “fire-in-the-soul”. Often, being out in nature allows the fire to expand. Anything out of routine is helpful to break the apathy pattern that exists when the fire is missing.

“But, I’m depressed,” you might say. Breaking set patterns becomes vital as the fire is low in this case. Do one thing differently today. One thing. Doing one simple thing differently changes our perspective on lots of other things. One little thing is a spark that can ignite the bonfire of your soul!

It’s unnecessary to be fired up about everything all the time. Yet, having that “fire-in-the-soul” about something brightens the whole world. You feel it and shine. Others sense the shine and can catch the spark. Soon, the world is a brighter place.

One little change can make a huge difference in your own world. One person can make a huge difference in the world. Make a difference by doing one thing differently and see where that takes you! What an adventure! Look out world!

Those who remember old TV shows can hear me shouting - Fire-In-The-Soul!
