Messages From The Ancient Ones – Creating Grace

Your world has so much to offer you. We encourage you to take advantage of all there is here to bless you on your journey.

It is quite easy to perceive your environment as hostile. There is much in your world to prove this to you.

Yet, this assumption dismisses and hides the truth of the grace granted to your world by Divine Source. As humans, it is easy to recognize the chaos you create that appears to darken the grace flowing to your world. Yet, grace still flows!

Yet, notice what wonderful things human-kind have created to bless one another . . . to make life simpler and less burdensome on many levels. This creative energy bases itself upon the same creation energy that emerged in the beginning of time.

You have access to this creation energy when you seek it. This creation energy can express itself as works of art and also as problem solving. When you release the negative bias that abides as common thought forms within humanity and seek this creative energy, by grace it is freely given.

Once you tap into this creative energy, you have an abundance of insights, awareness, creativity to not only solve current difficulties in your life, but also to share with others.

In this way creativity blesses you and others. Grace adds to grace and all are blessed.

May you become the blessing you already are!

Intuitive Tarot Mastery and Certification Worth-shop

I’ve been working on a new workshop – aka Worth-Shop for several months now. I’ve nearly finished all of the handouts for the 8-part series to be held once a month. I’ll be offering a Mastery and Certification program for Intuitive Tarot.

I really enjoy and appreciate using the Tarot as a tool for intuitive readings. The pictures on the cards speak volumes and in combination with the questions asked and the position in the reading, can have a myriad of meanings. I’ve been doing readings professionally for over 25 years and every reading still blows me away. The information that comes through . . . the blessings that abound . . . the insights that assist. One just cannot make this stuff up!

It breaks my heart to see people using a reading to tell people what to do or to make themselves feel important. It is so much MORE than that!

I used to be very concerned about the Tarot and didn’t want to have anything to do with it. As frequently happens with me, the Universe (God) looks at that and probably chuckles and says, “hmm…what do you think of this?” Then throws me a curve ball that shifts my thinking completely. Because, I’m usually pretty convinced about something I know nothing about and I’m often wrong about my preconceived ideas.

Perhaps that’s why Intuitive Tarot is so exciting for me. Every time I open up intuitively I’m surprised and blessed. I believe that everyone is intuitive. Remember that time you said to yourself, “gosh, I wish I’d listened to that inner voice.” That was your intuition being guided by Divine Source to your highest and best good.

We just don’t know how to listen. Yet.

Intuition is like a muscle. If you use a muscle it gets stronger. Get grounded with in injury or illness, the muscle weakens. If we ignore our intuition/Divine Connection, it’s like not moving the muscle and it’s not very strong. Then! Something important comes through and we get all freaked out because it’s so strong that we are afraid of it!

That strong message happens because we are spiritual couch potatoes getting soft. Yet, the messages come through anyway. Imaging what would happen if we actually paid attention to our intuition routinely and allowed it to flow in a supportive and active way. Awesomeness happens!

Intuitive Tarot is one of many tools that accesses the intuition.

If you are interested in this Worth-shop, I’m including a document that has dates/times/costs along with the intuitive development program. If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at janice@janicelynch.com (I hope to make this Mastery Worth-shop an online class next year for those who live too far away to attend in person. In the meantime, if you wish to take the foundation workshop online, you can go to www.learnintuitivetarot.com. This online course is a part of the Mastery course and will be included at a huge discount.)

Over the years, I’ve collected probably 40 or 50 Tarot decks. I think each one has something unique and different to express. I also have a bunch of Oracle decks (angel decks and the like). Our Worth-shop will primarily utilize Tarot which includes the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. We will also explore the oracle decks, but it is not necessary to own a set.

Whichever Tarot deck you choose will have great messages for you to learn, experience, grow and share.

I’m hosting a free information meeting at The Divine Fellowship, 513 Barth, Richland WA on Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:30.

I hope you have an opportunity to join in the fun!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Heart of Hearts

Your heart can be a powerful tool for healing and a terrible weapon for destruction. Guard it with your trained attention.

One's feelings give you powerful clues as to your state of being. At the same time, one's feelings are based upon life experiences up to this point in your existence. If your feelings have been trained by trauma to expect and to notice sorrow and suffering, you will arm yourself with that awareness as a weapon. It becomes so easy to judge another by this armed awareness.

So how does one know what is the highest and best? Do our feelings not have value?

Yes, they have great value when they are trained by Love.

What trains the heart? The Heart-of Hearts. Your soul. Within your Heart-of-Hearts/soul/spirit there is Truth. There is Divine Connection within your Heart-of-Hearts that transcends your feelings. This Divine Connection links you to All That Is. In this connection, there abides peace, love, appreciation, gratitude, and joy. If your feelings stir up any other feeling experience, look deeper into the Heart-of-Hearts to really discern what is happening - what is the Truth.

Truth resides as neutral within the Heart-of-Hearts. It causes no discomfort. Yet, Truth becomes a powerful force for action. Action without doubt. Action without guilt. Action without fear. Action without expectation. Action of fulfillment. This action of fulfillment provides tremendous energy stores for you to use.

Feeling exhausted? Return to your Heart-of-Hearts and seek the Truth. (Not right and wrong, but rather Truth!) This Truth not only sets you free from any unpleasant emotional response, it also provides vast energy stores for you to access and utilize.

Unable to find the Truth? Speak your truth in this way . . .

I get to . . . .(fill in the rest of the Truth from your Heart-of-Hearts). and along with that statement, add this one, too. . . . They get to . . . . (speak from the Heart-of-Hearts).

Take the time to listen to your Heart-of-Hearts. Great value resides here.

May the Truth set you free and empower your journey.

The Heart’s Dream

Do you ever feel like, “I just don’t know what to dream anymore”?

We feel our dreams have abandoned us. It seems as if everything we’ve dreamed has turned to dust.

Phil and I have lost count of the number of business ventures we attempted that failed. We had one string of bad luck after another. We knew we were doing the right things, but everything was turning out wrong.

Why weren’t those things working? We were prayerful, giving of our means, spiritual, positive, joyful, grateful . . . we were “doing the deal”! Why didn’t it work?*

“Why?” is the wrong question to ask. Why leads us into judgment. Judgment takes us away from the experience and into doubt and bitterness. The better question to ask is “What?” What did I learn? What did I experience? What shall I try next?

Each venture that Phil and I attempted and failed taught us something very important toward our role as leaders or granted us a tremendous gift in some way. The biggest thing failure gave us was the ability to release relying on how we think it should be. We became free to live beyond any limiting expectations.

The Heart’s Dream dreamed us into existence. The fear-filled, self-willed people we used to be couldn’t do the work we each do now do. Failures whittled away the rough edges and prepared us for what was to come. Our prayerful willingness to follow our interests led us right where we needed to be. Even when we thought we needed to be focused elsewhere.

As we allowed our attention to be drawn into areas that we loved, we found worthy work there.

Those failures were hard. We couldn’t help but take them personally. And that was also a good thing, because then we allowed ourselves to take good, hard looks at what we were doing, how we were doing it, and what we could do differently. Discouragement was a luxury we could not afford. At least not for longer than a day or two.

We are grateful for every painful step that led us to the fulfillment of our Heart’s Desires even when we didn’t know what they were.

So, I totally get it if you find yourself discouraged. Discouraged doesn’t mean you don’t have courage, it just means that you got the wind kicked out of you and you need a bit of a breather. Catch your breath and try again. And again. And again if need be. If failure is happening, it’s because your heart may know a better way. Your heart wants to align with your soul’s purpose.

You get to trust the process, and remember that it is a process. Failure is not a death sentence, rather the re-start button. Once your heart and your mind and your soul’s purpose align, you will attain success. Don’t be surprised if it doesn’t look like you think it’s gonna.

May your Heart’s Dream find you!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – August 8th 2018

Bless and be blessed.

When you seek harmony, it will be revealed to you. When you seek joy, it will be revealed to you. When you seek blessings, they will be revealed to you.

When you seek worry, it will find you. When you seek distress, it will find you. When you seek annoyance, it will find you.

Be careful what you look for.

The fastest way to shift out of worry and distress (fear) is to bless someone else. To bless is the simple act of specific, intentional kindness in thought or deed. When one finds a specific, intentional kindness, those other troublesome energies fade and dissipate from your consciousness and from your life experience.

The amazing and beautiful thing about blessing someone else (or blessing a situation with kind thoughts) is that the blessings return to you in an amplified manner. Not only does your personal energy change and that feels better, but also the energies around you shift and become magnetized to positive life experiences.

Bless and be blessed.
