The Grail Path – Now Under New Management

No, JoJerodene.com has not been taken over by some random stranger and I’m still very much at the cutting edge of The Grail Path. For a very long time the guides and angels that surround me have been a constant source of inspiration, comfort and guidance. Much of my understanding has been in conjunction with and via a conversation with them. One more so than the others: Archangel Azrael, known as the angel of death and transformation, I refer to as my guardian, guide and friend, offered me a succinct message a couple of days ago: “Now under new management.”

Walking in meditation with him, we arrived at a large shiny building and stopped outside the glass revolving doors. Above the doors was the sign: “101,” and Azrael instructed me to go inside… but he also announced that he couldn’t go with me.

Now I don’t know about you but I don’t do anything without my angelic counterpart in tow so this was a shock and cause for consternation. He continued: “It is Metatron who will guide you from here. There will still be ending and I will still be here but this is a time of great gathering and he has been assigned to walk this leg of the journey with you.” Azrael pointed through the glass doors where I could see Metatron waiting athe the other side and a huge staircase just beyond him…

101 is a number that we have adopted and reularly use as a society to describe basic learning and individual training but the image above the doors in my meditation were instantly recognisable as two gateposts and a portal. The gateposts were the angels standing either side of the revolving door and it was time to step through the portal into a new level of understanding.

As you walk your own Grail Path, there will be times when those you are closest to cannot go with you. Parts of the path where new teachers and guides arrive and places on the path that feel unfamiliar and uncertain. It’s like the first day of school when you leave your parents at the gate and your nursery/kindergarten teacher is holding out her hand at the otherside… mum is encouraging you to go forward and reassuring you it’s safe but you are still apprehensive.

New friends, new adventures and new wisdom is beckoning us all. Expansion cannot happen inside the comfort zone.

I’ve worked with Metatron many times before but never as my main guide. He is a hard taskmaster… but if Azrael thinks I’m ready, I’m not going to argue.

Are you ready to expand your life experience and deliver your on your life purpose? Maybe I can help you on your Grail Path? After all, that’s exactly why I’m here (and now under new management)!

You Will Never Get It Done

Are you, like me, one of those people that doesn’t have a set schedule? If you are then chances are you’re still pre-programmed with the need to get things done. The only problem being that because nobody stipulates your day off, you forget to give yourself one. There is always stuff to do and you will never get it done. Spiritual development or soul work is just the same. You will never get it done.

Yesterday was a Bank Holiday here in the UK and I was all set to do a days work, get all my blogs and newsletters done, edit my weekly YouTube videos (and work on the membership programme, record the meditation videos for my forgiveness course, work on my book, sort the content for this week’s online class…. you get the idea) when I found a single piece of fascinating information hidden amongst some other old junk in a cupboard. It set me on a trail of discovering the next layer of my own spiritual journey and my bank holiday work schedule became a distant memory. Synchronicity and the universe had another plan for me.

What I found was a Kabbalistic Angelic Astrology Calculator amongst some books that were residual stock from my shop. That was back in 2009, so effectively I’ve had this item for 11 years still in it’s packaging. Only now, after I’ve spent the last year working with Kabbalah in my own development had it become relevant to me… I could literally hear the angels screaming “Do not discard! Open it.”

Several hours and much research later, I was astounded to find that the exact lessons that I had been living out over the last decade of my life and actually effectively for most of my adult life, were written in black and white in front of me. If only I had opened it back in my shop in 2009.

The truth is, if I’d opened it then I wouldn’t have understood a word. None of it would have resonated and I would have filed it in the back of mind under interesting but useless. Today though, this information is a valdation of my mission and my reason for incarnating in this lifetime. I had to live out the last decade blind in order to see.

This journey is meant to unfold in Divine timing and moreover, it’s meant to keep unfolding lifetime after lifetime. Once you understand that you will never get it done, you can begin to ease up on yourself and relax about the next bit. I know that the universe and the angels are going to get me where I am supposed to be, to do what I’m supposed to do and greet who I’m supposed to meet at exactly the right moment for my highest good and everyone else’s, I just have to follow the guidance I’m offered in the form of inspiration, urges and fascination.

I’m supposed to be in a constant state of Principle 2: I AM Detached, focused and present with what is. That is where The Grail is and that is where the magic happens. Imagine if I had written this blog yesterday… it would be a different blog and I wouldn’t have made a massive, magical discovery about my own purpose and renewed my passion for following my path.

Now imagine what you might discover if you get present with what is fascinating you right now.

The Truth About Perception

Those of you on a more enlightened path are more inclined to accept that what’s true for you may not be true for another, as in Principle 4 of The Grail. The question is: are you prepared to consider that what’s true for you may not be true at all? Perhaps we should take a closer look at the truth about perception.

Just a few weeks ago I explored the topic in another blog when I began to identify my old self-sabotaging stories, finding new truth’s that better fitted with who I am now and perhaps more importantly, who I wish to become. What if we gave up those stories altogether though? What if we could simply observe the world without having to create a story around any of it?

Our perception is flawed by our experience up to this point. We automatically draw associations and conclusions based on what happened last time something similar showed up in our experience. This gives us a prejudiced and bias view by defualt, of every interaction and observation that we are subjected too. Consider then, that your truth is not your truth at all and simply your current way of understanding your circumstances by comparing them to what you already know (or think your know).

To truly have an open mind you have to let go of the stories completely and just be with the unfolding experience. Where a smile from a stranger is just a smile from a stranger and an offer of help is a genuine offer without strings or complications. Where a butterfly is just a butterfly and not a symbol of transformation… and a dark cloud is just a dark cloud and not an omen of anything negative approaching from the horizon.

Of course the human psyche rarely works like that. It is built for survival and will draw associations in order to prepare itself for anything that might harm it (or you). Through observation and experience we make those associations and correlations in order to exptrapolate conclusions. We then act according to the “truth” we discern from our calculations and take appropriate action in the best way we know how based on the evidence we have conjoured in our own minds. In other words, we create the story first in our own heads and then we live it out… we don’t live the experience and then write the story about it.

Imagine what you could experience if you began to form new conclusions prior to taking action. The truth about perception is: proving what you think to be right might not always be in your best interest… because it isn’t going to allow you to change what isn’t serving you if you believe it is “just what is,” without your psyche putting up a fight.

Align to a new mantra this week and see what changes for you. Try this one:

It means nothing at all except what I decide it means to me!

Soul Alignment – When There’s No Going Back

You know that you are nowhere near the finish line yet, but you also have a sneaky suspicion that you have past the point of no return when there’s no going back from here on out. Understanding that now is the time to double-down on your intentions and focus on where you want to go rather than where you have been, how exactly do you get into alignment with something that you have never actually experienced?

Life is changing. Not just outwardly, but also on a cellular level for many of us. We are becoming increasingly aware that we cannot return to what was. If you, like me have noticed your frequency changing, your preferences transforming day by day your sensitivity to what no longer resonates increasing by the moment, then you may also be experiencing the underlying anxiety that goes along with a fundamental shift.

Personally, as a fixed earth sign, I don’t relish major and irrevocable change, (which is a bit of a problem at the moment with Uranus, the planet of upheaval, currently resident in my home sign)! It leaves me feeling ungrounded, uprooted and with a sense of loss that disturbs my creative process and my sense of wellbeing. I feel the need to dive deep into my own reflective journey and become hermit-like. Even in the throes of what essentially has been hibernation for many, I need to go deeper in, before I can come through. I understand that transformation comes with liberation and that blessings must follow, but that doesn’t make the actual transition any less frought.

Alignment is the process of surrender, acceptance and releasing resistance to forces beyond your control. But it also requires that you orient yourself in the direction of the current so that you flow with it instead of being battered by it along the way. It requires that you set your intention for a blessed outcome, allowing the universe to dictate what needs to grow and what needs to fall, in order to arrive at that state of bliss.

When you set your intention, or place your focus, (which is tantamount to the same thing whether you realise it or not), on an outcome that you fear, then you create more resistance and make the changes increasingly more painful. When you focus on what wonders might replace your current status quo, in a manner that stays positively expectant of miracles, then you open the scope of the creative genius of the whole universe to surprise and delight you.

The transition itself, is one that you have to do in a way that supports your soul’s growth whilst ensuring that your ego feels heard and safe.

If like me, you struggle with change no matter how much you also remain open to it, then increasing the conversations you have with your higher power, angels and soul voice, through meditation, journaling and even creative daydreaming, can be beneficial in stabilising your vibration as it shifts and finds a new normal. Support your mind, body and spirit with rest, adequate hydration and nutrition. Retreat from those whose energy feels unsupportive, negative or heavy. Don’t feel the need to explain your healing actions and don’t be tempted to appease those who do not support your growth. Yes, that may mean even more change as you feel familiar networks and relationships fall away but also give rise to a self-empowered new standard of what you will and will not accept for yourself.

Respect yourself enough to know when there’s no going back. Love yourself enough to do the journey your own way. Accept yourself enough to become what you were sent here to become… but most of all see yourself clearly enough to know that there is always more to do, more to love and more to accept.

Keep growing.

Love, Jo x

May Day Edition – Soften Back Into Flow

If you feel like you have been pushing against your natural rhythm of late, this will come as a validation of the inner call of the divine feminine present within all things that requires us to soften back in to flow.

The divine masculine uses language like “control” and “drive;” it propels us into a world that feels rushed and hurried, contrived and competitive. You maybe thinking that when we are all still obviously held within the confines of lockdown that those things are far from our current state, but how many of you have felt the need to hustle to catch up or keep up? How many of you have felt the pressure to adapt or fall by the wayside?

Personally I hit a wall last week, after being in the hustle stage for too long and pushing just a little too far too fast. I felt the familiar tug of fatigue creeping in and the discomfort of misalignment from my soul’s voice. For me that spells the beginning of wandering off the path into the danger zone and more importantly away from my own bliss.

Stepping back into the nurturing embrace of the divine feminine leaves room for that language to transform from “control” into “allow” and from “drive” into “flow.” Neither of these states is wrong, or right for that matter, all serves. It just has a more cooperative, collaborative, co-creative feel to it. You become the craft that flows whilst the universe controls and drives the vessel.

When we soften back into flow, we leave room for the miracles that were meant for us. We begin to demonstrate trust in a power higher than our own and become the instructed rather than always having to be the instructor. We allow the path unfold naturally without needing to dictate which direction it takes.

I invite you to join me in setting an intention for the beautiful, bountiful, fertile feminine energy of Beltane, when the May Day “Empress” is ripe with potential, to focus on bliss, gratitude and what is already present within our lives. To be open and receptive to the flow of energy that is bringing with it even more blessings and fresh opportunities until such time as the energy once again requires us to drive.

This balance or dance between the be and the do, the yin and the yang, the receiving and the giving… this is the nature of all relationships and the essence of Grail Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted. Let your heart soften back into flow, then notice all the gifts the universe is holding in reserve for you come rushing in.

If you would like to learn more about the inner workings of The Grail and how to align with your own flow of abundance, consider becoming a Founder Member where I can support you on your path of becoming. Sign up for emails here if you’d like to be kept in the loop.

Happy May Day!

Monthly Oracle – Get Out Of The Way Of The Message

You might have some ideas about who you are in the world and indeed who you are not. This month’s Intuitive Chalice Oracle combo though, is definitely an instruction to put all that aside and get out of the way of the message.

When Principle 1: “I AM God” shows up in a reading, it wants you to hone in on your hang-ups around self-worth and how that maybe getting in the way of you stepping into purpose or living to your fullest potential. Marry that with the potent royal blue throat chakra and the Divine has a message that needs to be delivered through you. God is asking you to get over yourself and get out of the way so that a greater work can be manifested through your hands.

It would be short-sighted to believe that the message can only come through in one way, so don’t be fooled into thinking that you are about to start trance channelling great wisdom. The Divine can speak through great art, writing, music, baking, gardening, nurturing children or the elderly, the list goes on… Whatever gifts, talents and passions are flowing through you are The Divine’s gift to the world. The question here is whether you have what it takes to share the gift or whether you will get stuck in your own head asking the question: “who am I to do this/to create this/to tell the world about this?”

Self-expression is at the forefront with this combo and so you may find yourself being thrust into situations that feel outside of your comfort zone, being asked your opinion or for your insight and expertise. The idea of being the expert might feel really uncomfortable for you outside of your usual circle of safety. Now is a time where, if you want to expand into your potential then you will have to get used to feeling out on a limb and exposed.

Even though this oracle portends an increased level of vulnerabilty, it also assures protection if you can remain the humble messenger rather than taking the message or how it is received so personally. Authenticity is key.

You may find that certain walls start to fall at this time that have sheilded you from scrutiny. You might also find that some people who were loyal to the message you once portrayed, begin to fall away as you refine and clarify into a purer form of the inspiration flowing through you. This is the exact act that has the potential to startle you into hiding the true message if you allow your small-self to guide your reactions to such judgement.

You were sent with a mission and a purpose to fulfil. Only you have the keys and codes to unlock the message the way the universe intended it to flow through you. Don’t let your ego, your lack of self-worth or your fear of being seen stand in the way of the Divine Plan unfolding. Get out of the way of the message and play your part the way God intended.

Being Self-Full Is The Most Difficult Choice

Last week was a week of firsts for many people I’m regularly in contact with, launching themselves way beyond the outer limits of their comfort zones into undiscovered country. I was no different. It got me thinking about when being Self-Full is the most difficult choice.

To others bravery, beforehand, can look like stupidity, absurdity and even recklessness, but on the otherside of the leap, once you launch yourself from the safety of the nest and realise you are flying, that’s when the world looks up and acknowledges how brave you were.

Self-Full Living is about managing your well-being and it could easily be mistaken for taking the gentle option by playing safe. But there is no safety in stagnancy and definitely no self-care in playing small. Sometimes it is the most difficult choices, requiring the most courageous acts, that rescue us from our patterns and set us free from the prisons that have slowly been sapping our vital force.

Self-Full Living is about realising you have a problem that is detrimental to your spiritual, mental, or physical health. It is identifying a habit, behaviour, relationship or environment that is dismantling the life you’ve built around you or crushing you at soul level. But it is more importantly about what you choose to do when you recognise it… do you say “that’s too hard” and do nothing, or do you make the difficult choice and be brave?

Being Self-Full is the most difficult choice because it often requires sacrifice and it often requires you to move away from what feels familiar or what feels comfortable.

Self-Full Living is about embracing self-care, but you may find that long-term well-being requires short-term pain.

My question to you is this: are you willing to launch yourself out of the nest and be the bravest version of you, so that your well-being can recover and your soul can once again shine?

What firsts are you bravely stepping into this week?

Let me know in the comments.

Letting Your Soul Speak

Have you ever noticed that when you are at your most relaxed, for example in dream state, that the things that have been filling your waking thoughts often show up in a new way? Letting your soul speak to you in this way helps you to cut through the clutter and go right to the heart of the question.

The soul voice doesn’t lie, that’s why as part of my Grail teachings I focus on soul-life alignment. When you begin to understand the way in which your soul speaks and the language it uses, you become attuned to the universal flow and life begins to open up.

For the last few days I have been talking about an “upper limit problem.” The term Upper Limit Problem (ULP) was coined by Gay Hendricks in his book “The Big Leap” and refers to the point where you have reached the highest level of your own comfort zone or perhaps just begun to crack through it. That is the point where the old self begins to sabotage your progress by any means necessary. Its the point where you’ve just had the best experience of your life and then you go and get sick, or you meet the guy of your dreams and the relationship is going so well that you go all paranoid and turn into a psycho, insecure bitch. It’s the point where you land your dream job and then start staying out late celebrating and then showing up late to work… the list goes on.

The reason I’m mentioning the ULP is that, after the last few days of discussing it, I had the most simple and yet extraordinary dream… a dream where I noticed that a ceiling tile had been moved slightly and there was a gap. Disliking anything seemingly out of place and being a little bit OCD about it, I decided to get a dining chair, climb up and fix the tile… the moment I touched it, the whole ceiling came down!

Now, in real life I don’t have ceiling tiles but that ceiling does symbolically represent an upper limit. My soul voice was showing me that I personally am worried about aproaching my own ULP. But for me, the crack in the ceiling was already unstable enough that even if I try to “fix it,” or go back to what was, it’s too late to turn back now and the whole damn thing is about to open up. That’s good news right? It means I’m beyond sabotaging the next step of the journey. As with any upper limit problem though, the part of me that fears change is on high alert and trying to sabotage progress regardless.

As I listened to my own soul voice through observing the continuing dream, I noticed that the real concern kept coming up for me. My soul showed me what my ego was afraid of, but as I observed how I felt about that, I realised that it wasnt as a big a deal as my small self was imagining. It was about how life has to change, how community has to change, how friendships will shift etc. All those things are a natural part of growth and those that grow with me are meant to stick around, those that don’t resonate with the new level of connection and consciousness will fall away… always with my love and gratitude. I’m fine with that level of flow.

By letting your soul speak you give yourself an opportunity to catch yourself before the saboteur takes over the operation and, who knows? You might just realise you love the new space more once that ceiling comes down and you see the sky is the limit.

Let me know in the comments:

  • What is your soul trying to tell you through your dreams?
  • What “Upper Limit Problem” are you facing right now?
  • What’s you inner saboteur up to at the moment?

Let’s get you back in alignment and put that sneeky little sucker back to bed!

Rewite Your Story From Powerless to Powerful

Do you keep telling the same story of your “lot in life” that just isn’t serving you? I feel you, I really do. I’ve got lots of ways of describing myself, what I’m capable of and what I’m not, how my life is and how it always has been. It’s time to get super-conscious and rewrite your story from powerless to powerful so you can finally step into the life you want to live rather than assuming that is what other people do.

The last few days and even week’s have been difficult for many, but those who choose to use the time to their advantage might find it truly transformative. I personally feel this is a potent opportunity if you know where to focus your attention. I was lucky enough to have the angels show me exactly where to focus whilst I was being really Self-Full, indulging in a spot of meditation.

Let me tell you about my meditation…

I entered a room where Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel were waiting to greet me. In this room were four chairs. Now these weren’t just any chairs, they were big plush wing-back leather chairs in fire engine red. They were facing each other and each had a glass and chrome side table with a glass and jug of water. These were the chairs the panel of experts sit in at a symposium, or the judges on The Voice!

Because they were all facing each other, I knew it wasn’t about being judged so I assumed the former. Michael motioned me to sit down and I realised I was one of the experts! Me! But as I sat (and sat a while longer) I realised nobody else was coming and that the other chairs were still empty. Four chairs but I only chose one…

As far as the angels were concerned there were 3 other areas of my life that I believed I had no control over because I kept telling myself that I knew nothing about those things. The message was clear, I need to become the expert in all areas of my own life if I’m going to live it the way I want to. And, I’m going to have to start telling the story that way too.

One of the key areas that I’ve had a story of powerlessness around for that last few years is money. I’ve been telling myself for years that I’m not good with it and I don’t really know what to do with it. I remember back to working in the leisure industry, I used to tell my boss I would run her any department she asked, but if she put me in charge of finance I would bakrupt her inside a week! I’m still telling that same old bullshit story now and the universe is done listening to it… (enter angelic intervention stage left). One of my big red chairs was for the “expert on personal finance” because until we learn how to steward a resource, the universe cannot bring it to you.

The moment I understood the lesson I began learning everything I could about stewarding personal resources including my money, time, energy, etc. I am already willing to accept the expert label in my role as Soul-Life Alignment Specialist & Grail Guide (spirtiual teacher to the layman), but that’s only one chair. I’m not willing to identify with the old paradigm anymore. I’m rewriting my own story from powerless to powerful! If any of this resonates or sounds like you, you need to get educated in the areas you feel you have no control over.

You might be wondering what this has to do with The Grail Path? When you rewrite your story from powerless to powerful, from incompetent or victim to expert, you automatically begin to align with a new frequency that attracts the manifestations that match your description. The Grail isn’t an airy fairy spiritual concept that has no baring on your day to day reality, it is the blueprint for consciously creating your reality as heaven on earth. Both Principes 5 & 6 are about stewarding resources and Principle 1 is all about how we identify with our own worth.

(I will also be introducing The 4 Pillars of The Grail shortly, they will break down the connection between spirit and matter for you even further. Look out for that here on the website in the next few weeks).

Money is energy… and I for one am open to receiving an abundance of it and every other form of high vibe energy into my life.

So, what I really want to know is:

  • What story have you been telling yourself that isn’t working for you?
  • Which of your expert chairs are you going to learn to fill next?
  • What action are you taking to fill your learning gap in that area?
  • What would you like the new story to sound like?
  • And… how can I help?

Let me know in the comments below.

For now though, I’m wishing you a productive and powerful week ahead.
