And it's like this.

I am

Jeannie guides the participants to soften open, dropping attention out of thought into the simple, vibrating moment.  Jeannie talks about consciousness (I am) and manifestation (and it's like this), and the participants sitting as a oneness and multiplicity simultaneously. From here we can let attention move and notice all that is, allowing it to be as it is. Jeannie invites participants to suspend doing anything about what we notice in trade for noticing it all as it is. She talks about the conditioning to strategize and address what we find, while skipping over really being with the elemental fact of "I am and it's like this." Conditioning even overlays an assigned value or interpretation on our simple resting being!


Exchange 1 - Participant has separated from her husband, and in that context, a lot of early issues are rising that she's not sure how to meet. Jeannie guides her to notice the resource of simple resting and to sink into that in the moment. She demonstrates the contentless quality of felt experience below the memories, and emphasizes the wisdom of the creature of the body and the use of feeding the creature the benevolence of the moment.

Exchange 2 - Participant has a conflict with her sister that her sister would like her to "get over" but participant cannot forgive and get over it. Jeannie talks about mercy for the part that's hurting, and how true forgiveness comes only after deeply meeting the one who cannot yet forgive. She also addresses the participant's feelings about the President.

Exchange 3 - Participant is dismayed by continually acting out conditioned patterning with her ex-husband from a need to be recognized. Jeannie guides participant to give upon on getting recognition and rest in her own sense of being. She helps her to become conscious of the reactive energy in her body and meet it, and then walks her through the felt sense of sovereignty in his presence. Jeannie talks generally about what it takes to unwind reactivity.

Exchange 4 - Jeannie encourages participant to not skip over the anxiety rising in the moment.
Participant names the "straight A student" as a rising identification. She then shares that she had an opening and presence in daily life is different, but also quite subtle, and she wonders if this is "it." Jeannie encourages her to not listen to what "they" say but instead to give herself and her attention to the sense of presence and to explore her own experience. She supports her to meet fear without an object rather than projecting it on the silence. She helps her to feel into what an insincere question feels like and directs her to turn toward her own resting being as she meets the grasping.

Exchange 5 - Participant has lots of feelings of badness which breaks her heart. Jeannie talks about the sense of badness or banishment (this should not be) as the core of separation and how it is created, and suggests some ways to meet it when it rises. "I feel bad but I'm not bad."
