And a Great Time Was Had By All

A reminder for conscious creators in today’s current political climate:

Change out there starts with change in here.

It’s all an inside job, because the world can only reflect what we vibrate.

So we don’t achieve peace and wellbeing by being anything other than peaceful and well.

Conscious creators know we don’t have to make the world different in order to relax and enjoy. That is always available to us anytime we choose it.

We also know that everyone gets to choose for themselves.

So if others choose something besides peace and wellbeing, that’s perfectly fine. It doesn’t mean we have to have it, too.

Example: The other night I shared a 12″ pizza with a friend. His half had had pepperoni, black olives and mushrooms on it. Everything I don’t like in a pizza.

My half was fresh basil, roma tomatoes and mozzarella. Yum!

And yet, there we were, enjoying our pizza together, without the need to make the other understand what was wrong with olives or why pepperoni is what makes the world go round.

He had it his way. I had it mine. All was well.

It might seem a ridiculous analogy, but the concept holds for bigger world “issues.”

Source doesn’t judge our choices. And we each get to choose for ourselves. Every one of us. No exceptions.

That’s why it’s helpful when we don’t judge each other’s choices, either.

(Esther Hicks has refused invitations to have Abraham join world peace movements, since Abe says, “We would never impose peace on anyone.”)

“But where does change come from?” some wonder. Surely someone needs to do something about what’s wrong in the world right now.

“Because if we don’t, who will?”

That’s the siren call of muggle world that thinks nothing happens if we don’t take action.

They don’t realize we live in a vibrational-based world.

But conscious creators know action is pointless if we don’t tend to the energy first.

Any action, no matter how sensible, logical and obvious it may seem, won’t lead to the results we want if we haven’t learned the vibration of what we want.

Which is why this is a helpful time to not be shamed or guilted for not joining marches or signing petitions or calling our legislators or whatever else others call for that conscious creators know doesn’t make the real difference.

The real difference comes from the vibration.

That’s what’s worth paying attention to: how you feel.

(Not to mention, the idea of seeing others in the world as “at risk” or victimized isn’t actually using our focusing power for good, if you know what I mean.)

It’s also helpful to remember we don’t know what vibe others are flowing via their actions.

Because you can march with peace in your heart or with rage flowing. You can call your legislator out of fear about what you don’t want, or as an inspiration to empower your preferences.

The action itself doesn’t dictate what the vibration is for each person. That’s individual and personal.

It’s also worth remembering that to sit in judgment of another’s actions is to stick our nose where it doesn’t belong. Tending to our own vibration is the most effective way to promote (whatever we each think of as) good in the world.

As long as our emotional state is dependent on someone else’s actions or any external condition, we’re not free. And it’s not anyone else’s job or responsibility to change in order for us to feel better.

Conscious creators know this.

It’s especially fabulous when we practice it.

That doesn’t mean we can’t speak up or take action in service of what we desire. We just want to be sure it’s fueled by the good stuff instead of resistance.

It doesn’t mean we can’t march with others in an effort to create change. We just want to be sure we’re feeling empowered instead of victimized.

It’s more important than ever to harness our power of focus so we’re using our vibration to create the world we prefer.

That’s why this is a great time to not give a rip what others think, so that we can hear our own guidance above all else.

That’s why this is a great time to have skills for seeing what’s going right. And to prioritize enjoyment over suffering.

That’s why this is a great time to let others have it their way, remembering that we didn’t come here to agree.

That’s why this is a great time to remember the value of contrast. And how to not get stuck in it.

Actually, this is a great time. Period.

So enjoy your pizza! Or not.

You get to decide. 🙂

    I LOVE this blog entry so much! It’s so perfect – I may just keep re-reading it. THANK YOU!

  • Sandra says:

    That comment (“as long as our emotional state is dependent on someone else’s actions or any external condition, we’re not free”), is one reason why I stopped watching the news years ago. Listening to “talking heads” arguing on CNN is not the type of energy I want to absorb, especially on a daily basis. Now some people may consider that avoidance and that’s okay. But I’m happy. Are they?

  • Holly says:

    This resonated LOUDLY with me. Lately I’ve been allowing external things to affect my state of mind. I think I need to make this into a jpeg and set it as my phone’s wallpaper “As long as our emotional state is dependent on someone else’s actions or any external condition, we’re not free.”
    That is the most powerful thing I’ve read all day. Thank you.

  • Cara says:

    Love it!
    I happen to be eating pizza right now! Lol

  • Shai says:

    I feel that we are each in charge of our destinies but it is heartbreaking to think of the people who were stranded and were detained at airports just this past weekend due to the executive order issued our current President. I am proud of those individuals who felt empowered and protested at JFK Airport and I am proud of the Judge that ordered an emergency stay for those individuals that were left in limbo. One of whom was a translator in Iraq and risked his life to help American soldiers. Thank you for this post Jeanette because at the very least we know that we are not powerless. Our power lies in our ability to envision peace in this world and acknowledge where we see and experience that peace.

  • Letty says:

    For the first time since the election I broke out in tears and rage this morning. My husband tried to calm me down and asked what would Abraham would say. I decided to check here and see what you have to say. Thank you for getting me on a different vibration. This is beautiful. Thank you also anonymous for directing me to Soulfeed podcast. (Jeannette–I enjoy your LOA Recon podcast very much.)

  • Jerielle says:

    Hi Jeannette! Thank you so much for this – I am very overwhelmed by exactly what you are speaking of and have a little postcard writing party organized for this weekend. I am so glad I read this – as I will share a lot of what you said with my group. We are all naturally feeling so much of the resistance vibe – and while that has been beneficial in regards to mobilization – it is OH so draining. I hope I can inspire my small group to refocus our energies in this healthy way as we take the actions we will continue taking. Thank you!

  • Saira says:

    I need help from all of you guys . For the last 5 days I have been angry at people for the obvious reasons then I kepp hearing about the executive orders being passed and signed. I cannot gather myself to think that people are actually OK with things being done by one of the most powerful person in the world.
    I have lost faith in humanity and I am angry all the time. This helplessness and hopelessness is killing me.

  • Noelle says:

    Thank you so much Jeannette for, yet again, putting things into the “LOA Perspective” so perfectly and succinctly!!! And helping the rest of us remember how the world really works😘!!!

  • Kai Oceans says:

    I also joined the march in my city. In fact, when someone told me about it, which I didn’t know the actual reason behind the march (as I’m not the protesting type) and I jumped right on it as I felt excited at the thought!
    The actual march was way more than I could imagine and so powerful! So much love and creativity flowed through the streets that day and I couldn’t be happier! I use to judge people protesting as a LOA fanatic but actually being in one I was very wrong. There is more love and acceptance and empowerment than any type of fear I was assuming from my ‘cloud’ I was sitting on. I definitely had more fun in the march with all the thousands of people than if I stayed at home in my feathered, cosy bed.
    It showed me excalty what it’s like to choose to come to earth to all the excitement and contrast than to stay in pure positive energy! 😸
    Now I never need to know why I choose to be here than up in nonphysical! It’s SO much fun and life giving down here!😼

  • Namaste says:

    I love this line, “That’s why this is a great time to remember the value of contrast.”
    One of the values I’ve found in contrast is that it shows me my triggers so I can figure out what they are about and get me working towards releasing them so I can enjoy life more =)
    If anyone reading this was upset about the recent election results, the valuable part of your upset is it’s showing you your triggers. You now have the awesome opportunity to check them out and release some resistance. Here’s two resources to help you do that…
    An article about how Trump could be one of your greatest teachers.
    A book titled Dark Side of The Light Chasers by Debbie Ford.

    As a country we are going through a typical group dynamic phase of storming (phases are: forming, storming, norming, performing). We are having wonderful conversations about what is important to us, what we will agree to and what we won’t put up with. Once we get through the storming we will be stronger as a group and kinder as individuals.

    • Susan says:

      Wow…that gives me lots of hope….
      Maybe we come out of this so much better for the experience.
      Thanks lots!

  • “this is a great time to let others have it their way, remembering that we didn’t come here to agree.” This line gave me such a woosh of positive energy 🙂

  • Kathy says:

    I went to the Women’s march in LA yesterday. It was really fun! Peaceful and playful. It felt good to be with like-minded people–very re-assuring.
    I wish I was more detached about politics and public policy. I’m a school teacher and it seems to affect my workplace and all the people I work with. Ive held other jobs (long, long time ago) that were also directly affected by government policies (buying parkland, restoring habitat). It’s hard to turn it off in my mind (the caring about it).
    I know things will be okay…the leaders are just people like you and me…but sometimes it’s nice to feel like the people in charge 1. Know what they are doing and 2. Are acting in everyone’s best interest (you’d want that from your doctor, or someone doing work on your car or your house–or teaching your child.)
    But…part of life is living with uncertainty..eventually things work out.
    In any case I had a great time at the March in LA and I’m so pleased so many all over the world were out to say: let’s makes things better…good for all…good for women!

    • Jeannette says:

      Right, Kathy?! I was so impressed how many people gathered and it was completely peaceful! At least, I didn’t hear anything that wasn’t. And smiles everywhere! I thought that was really beautiful. 🙂

  • Ellen says:

    I love marches. To walk with a group of passionate, like-minded human beings is like stepping into a river of pure love. There is nothing quite like it.
    I didn’t insist anyone go to a march, or judge anyone for not going, I’m just happy so many got to feel the Tribe Vibe. My battery was running so low I really needed that jumpstart from other people.

    • Susan says:

      I have neighbors and close friends near by who see the world a lot like I do…but my friends who don’t have that were/ are so comforted and energized by the marches they attended…The women’s March made me happy, but for them, it was a lifeline, lifted their spirits so much…

      • Jeannette says:

        Which just goes to show we really don’t know what anyone else is vibing, so how pointless it is to think we know what anyone else should or shouldn’t do. (Including our newly inaugurated president, now that I say that. lol)

    • Jeannette says:

      Ellen, I totally get that! I had so much fun watching the marches happening all over the world that it made me wonder why I wasn’t marching, too! lol
      In fact, watching it felt more like a parade than any sort of protest. Know what I mean?
      Anyway, just wanted to say YAY for finding enjoyment wherever we do! And big yay for feeling the trive vibe, too! 🙂

  • Ming says:

    Jeannette, wonderfully said. Truly, you covered it all. I love this :
    That’s why this is a great time to not give a rip what others think, so that we can hear our own guidance above all else.
    That’s why this is a great time to have skills for seeing what’s going right.
    So many things have been rattling around in my head the last few days, even in my dreams. I have received some questions too from conscious creators on what I think as well. I’m going to direct them right here – to this very post.
    Vibration is so key. Isn’t it ? We can only tend to our own. I know for me , I CHOOSE peace (and joy) in my world.

    • Jeannette says:

      And that’s all we need to do! Choose for ourselves and enjoy our own party!
      Others get to make different choices if they want to … I have been reminding myself they get to choose for themselves, and they don’t choose for me.
      Thanks for reading and for posting, Ming. 🙂

  • Susan says:

    I am putting this on the home page of my phone….I am going to read it everyday.
    Love is the most important thing…and I have had a recent, miraculous experience with the power of unconditional love…so I should be able to hold on to that!! What I need to really keep in mind is letting go of the anger and resistance, to hold the positive thought of what I do want to manifest…
    Thanks so much.
