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)!

June Oracle – Welcome To The Bliss Bubble

The month of June is the time of the Solstice and a natural tendency towards hedonism and making hay while the sun shines. No wonder then that this month’s oracle is saying: “Hey you! Welcome to the bliss bubble!”

When Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, teams up with the sunshine yellow of the Solar Plexus Chakra, a time of celebration is at hand. But this is not celebration for the sake of celebration, this is the acknowledgement of, and revelling in the abundance of joy that is created when reciprocity is present.

Imagine if you will, the connection between two lovers who are finding fulfilment in giving joy to each other. Both engaged in the activity of mutual giving, but because both are giving without guile, both are also receptive to the other’s gifts. The ego steps aside when you begin the process of unconditional giving and receiving and everyone’s cups are filled with flowing energy. It is self-renewing and ever increasing.

Of course this isn’t necessarily about two lovers, it can be any number of friends, acquaintances or entities: lovingly attend your garden and it will bloom for you all summer long, mutual benefit, see? Tickle and play with your dog and it will lavish unconditional love in your direction and give you a thousand reasons to smile and so on.

Of course, you can enter the bliss bubble all by yourself when you choose to put love into the world and be open to the myriad ways it rewards you… the reward is often that it sees your effort and matches it in some way. That is reciprocity and it is definitely worth celebrating.

This month then, expect the world to see your effort and match it with an equal amount of energy. It’s not enough to simply see the mirroring action though, in order to ensure the universe keeps giving you reasons to smile, you have to keep giving the universe reasons to keep giving. Celebrate the abundance that is coming your way!

Now, a cautionary tale… the negative side of an unhealthy Solar Plexus is the ego’s reaction: not everyone will want to celebrate your new found joy. These are not the people who you should welcome to your bliss bubble. On the contrary, they are the ones who will try to take it from you because they do not see that by adding to the joy, they get to revel in it too. Instead they will drain the Grail so that nobody has cause to celebrate. Do not let anything or anyone take what you have paid for with your heartfelt contribution and love.

This is your moment. Welcome to the bliss bubble.

Love, Jo x

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.

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.

For help with getting out of your own way, check out the Weekly Alignment Message on my YouTube channel for guidance on stepping into soul-purpose.

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!

Discernment in a Time of Separation

Is the current climate of separation tempting you back into situations that you know you left for a reason?

After a week of very telling conversations, I felt drawn to write a piece today that would minister to those tempted to return to unfulfilling situations simply because the circumstances we are all experiencing at this time might be clouding judgment. Honouring yourself means exercising discernment in a time of separation.

Loneliness and the discomfort of coping alone might be a factor in the decisions we make at present, but do you remember why you moved on from those you are now considering returning to? Has anything really changed other than the feeling that you don’t want to do life by yourself?

The Grail Path requires you to place yourself as the sovereign of your own life. Ultimately this means that you step into power and take responsibility for the life, love and wellbeing that you want. It’s easy to romanticize the past and look through rose tinted glasses when things feel hard. This is especially so at present when, if you know anything about astrology, Venus has just entered shadow before retrograding for the longest period in 12 years. She isn’t asking you to go back to what was though, she’s asking you to go back and learn from those relationship mistakes and master it this time.

If you are focused on the past, thinking it was the good old days, then you are wandering into dangerous territory with Principle 2: I AM Detached. If you are projecting into the future thinking things will be different this time, then you better be sure that you have done the work. At the core of your decision needs to be the clarity of what you want, need and expect… not from others but FOR yourself. There is a big difference. If you are expecting others to provide for your needs, you are not being Self-Full and you are setting yourself up for disappointment, especially if that same person came nowhere close to fulfilling your requirements last time around.

Ask yourself these questions before you jump back into a relationship, friendship, partnership, situationship or entanglement again:

  • What has changed about you?
  • How are you going to handle the situation differently this time?
  • Have you clearly understood what the other person’s expectations of you are?
  • Are you prepared to meet those expectations?
  • Have you got a clear understanding of what your boundaries are and how to enforce them?
  • Have you made your boundaries clear to the other person?

Notice that all these questions are focused around you. You cannot control, or even accurately measure, the other person’s growth since the last time you connected (or parted), and although I am all about forgiveness (Principle 3), forgiveness is not free reign for more of the same.

The book I’m currently writing focuses heavily on this subject and guides you to honour your self-worth and remember that you are God presented in human form (Principle 1). If you allow yourself to accept less than reverence and respect from another in any of your relationships, then you allow the desecration of your most Sacred-Self.

Discernment in a time of separation needs for you to honour your own vulnerability and sit with it. If, when all this separation falls away and you return to your most powerful, you want to return to old relationships too, do so from a place of empowered respect for your heart and soul and not from the disempowered lonely ego, craving comfort, (that ultimately knows that familiarity leads back to discontent).

If you need more guidance at this time why not book a session?

Love always, Jo x
