As many have discovered, our thoughts and words do create, whether our thoughts or words are flippant or cursory or detailed or passionate. The more engaged we are in our words and thoughts, the more powerful and meaningful the manifestation.
Prayer is a form of meditation; however, in organized religion, we often recited prayers by rote memory – we spew the words on command without intent or having a connection to the prayer’s purpose or meaning.
Although I am no longer religious (I am, however, spiritual), I still sometimes use the memorized prayers to re-center and reconnect with Source; the difference of reciting the prayer before and now is that I am connected to the prayer’s meaning – I am connected to the words, therefore I am connected to the energy and intent of the prayer.
For the purpose of demonstration, I will use The Lord’s Prayer, which I often sing (yes, it had been recorded in song version); but whether I sing or say it, it is not rote.
I am offering my view and interpretation of The Lord’s Prayer with hopes that if/when you utilize any prayers, it will be with a new perspective and appreciation for the words you recite. And, believe it or not, The Lord’s Prayer is new-agey.
Our Father, who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy Name
- Keeping the Source in reverence and honoring Source (by doing so, we honor ourselves as well)
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
- Asking Source to guide you and surrendering to Source’s guidance/direction.
In (on) Earth as it is in Heaven.
- As Above, So Below. Our thoughts create our physical reality/life; our thoughts/prayers can manifest here.
Give us this day
Our daily bread
- Asking the Source to keep us nourished, both physically and spiritually.
Forgive us our debts (trespasses)
As we forgive our debtors (trespassers)
- How very “Karma”. We are asking to clear the slate through forgiveness.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
- Asking for guidance on staying away, or being protected, from negative influences, both spiritual and physical.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the glory
- Through the grace and guidance of the Source, we are always able to create this life to be spiritually connected and balanced.
For ever and ever
- The Source, and our connection to Source, extends beyond our physical lives; it is eternal.
- So Be It. Make is So. And so it shall be.
Again, this is my interpretation; you may have another interpretation, and that is fine – as long as you have an understanding of your intent of the words and have a connection to what you feel the prayer or meditation is meaning to you.
Regardless of your religious/spiritual preferences – prayers, meditation, communing with Source, etc. all have the capability of creating and manifesting when the act is done with conscious intent, connection and/or passion.
Please leave the rote behind, and become consciously aware what it is you are saying/thinking, asking for and putting into motion for manifestation.

I would like to re-address the energy shifts.
Many people are still getting confused, scared, worried, panicked, etc. right around the full moon phase and then about up to two weeks following the full moon (yes, in time to start gearing up for the next full moon – a tight schedule indeed).
Please keep in mind that with each full moon we get another energy shift. The easiest way to describe it is using computer downloads, upgrades and updates.
Updates usually aren’t as big as downloads, so are usually lighter; downloads usually take up more memory and slow your computer down for a bit while it integrates the information; upgrades can fall anywhere between updates and downloads.
The downloads, upgrades and updates piggyback on the energy shifts of each full moon (since we already had to adapt to increased gravitational pulls and heavier energies with each full moon).
Fortunately we’ve not had downloads every full moon; we have them every now and again. We do, however, have upgrades or updates in between the downloads so that we are receiving something each month.
Some are still working on adapting to the new energies that rode in on the last full moon we had – and this download was intense. Here are some of the experiences:
- Some have experienced highs and lows; periods of feeling everything moving smoothly to periods of panic or sadness.
- Health is pushing itself to honored more and more. Longstanding and suppressed imbalances are clamoring to be addressed.
- The new energies are digging deeper within us – to bring the emotional and physical imbalances to the surface – with periods of balance.
- Still feeing tired or tiring very easily.
- Feeling the urge to clean, organize and/or lighten the load – both physically and emotionally.
If you are struggling, please have patience with self. Go to bed earlier if you need to; cry if you need to release those long suppressed emotions (however, if you cannot overcome the sadness, or the imbalances continue, please seek help).
Unfortunately some people are not able to keep up with these new energy downloads, upgrades and updates, and those who stay in the lower frequencies are having difficulty seeing those who continue to adapt to the newer energies.
What Does That Mean?
It means those who are working on adapting to the new energies appear to be invisible to those who maintain lower frequencies (this is a generalized statement).
It is similar to radio frequencies in that when you are tuned into – for example – a Classic Rock station, you cannot hear the Country Music station; the Country Music station is “invisible” to you.
It means that those who stay in the lower frequencies may not see you – they can physically walk into you; they can drive “on top” of you.
Please, please, please – protect yourself and stay alert.
What is the Purpose of Experiencing This?
Let’s say you’re going on a long trip and you’ll be flying in a plane.
You need to make sure: your body is in shape (healthy enough – physically and emotionally – to make the flight); your body is properly immunized and protected and you do not exceed the weight limit for the plane. If you carry too much baggage, the plane won’t be able to achieve lift; you’ll remain grounded.
Our downloads, upgrades and updates are preparing us while we work on our health; strengthen our system (not literal immunization shots) and clearing our some of our baggage.
Remember, all of our health imbalances – both emotional and physical – were developed/created in the third dimension…we cannot bring that with us to the fifth dimension.
That means these downloads, upgrades and updates are being provided to aid us in healing and releasing our third dimensional past and belief systems.
Then, when everything is in order, are we able to achieve lift off.

Mini-Reading: Three (3) email questions for $15.00. Email: Jan@metaphysical-studies.com
Privacy – You are free to talk about your consultation to others all you want. I may use a generalized form of a topic you bring up – to write an article on my blog – but it will not contain any of your personal identifiers.
Also, the details of our conversation will only last for about three days – for your privacy, the conversation will fade. I may retain a general gist of the discussion, or may not. Should you want to discuss anything from this consult, you will need to provide details.
Conversing – Because I often receive information, I may start talking fast. Please interrupt me if I speak too fast. You will not hurt my feelings – I try to keep up with the incoming information – which can come really fast.
Procedure – If this conversation is about someone other than yourself, you can use a nickname or the person’s first name. I can only relate information of that other person – over the age of 16 – as it pertains to you – not them. I can go into “perhaps” mode, and offer possible alternatives as to how they MAY be feeling or perceiving.

I release Jan “JD” Toomer and Reality Undefined LLC from any liability, and hold harmless from anything that I may perceive as connected to these readings/classes/courses/study/energy work groups (including, but not limited to exercises or experiences from readings/classes/courses/study/energy work), field exercises, animal, metaphysical and/or paranormal consultations or anything else before, during or after the classes/courses, groups, meetings, readings or consultations.

I understand that Jan “JD” Toomer and/or Reality Undefined LLC recommends seeing a certified, qualified therapist or counselor for emotional distresses or concerns – for either current life issues or concerns as well as past life issues or concerns.
For Established Energy and/or Metaphysical Practitioners:
I am a metaphysical consultant; as energy workers, we are sometimes too close to a person or situation and need an outsider’s perspective on it. That’s where I come in.
I do not do typical “Readings”, I am topic or question specific; metaphysical or paranormal.
A consultation is $65 an hour – and I do have an Agreement to Hold Harmless and Release of Liability to view prior to making any commitment; an “e-signature” for distant work is fine and is required before a consultation.
The client and I will set a phone appointment time.
I will then send an invoice to the client, to be paid prior to the appointment. The invoice can be paid through PayPal. (I never have contact with the client’s payment information – only PayPal will have that – this is for your personal information safety and so that nothing in my system is available should it be hacked).
The client is welcome to pre-pay for more than one hour – any balance remaining will go towards the next consultation.
Client will also be sent a Agreement to Hold Harmless and Release of Liability which will need an e-signature.
At the time of the appointment, the client calls me.
The client describes the situation (if involving others, use first name or initials only). I will work to present the client with another perspective and/or energy information – oftentimes using guiding questions and/or examples to assist.
$65.00 per hour.
The agreed upon appointment time is when the appointment begins, whether or not the client calls on time.
I require cancellation notice 24 hours prior to the agreed upon appointment time. A credit voucher will be provided to the client to be used towards another appointment.
If there is no 24 hour cancellation notice, the client forfeits the first hour’s fee of $65.00. If the client pre-paid for more than one hour, the leftover balance with go towards the next consultation.

- I’m stuck! How do I get out of my rut?
- How do I figure out what I am supposed to be doing?
- How do I know my souls purpose/ my purpose in this lifetime?
These and similar questions are being asked more and more. I usually cannot give a person a pat answer such as “You are supposed to do ____” and fill in the blank for them. I can give some suggestions on how you can go about answering some of these questions yourself. Discovering and accepting the answer is part of your journey.
If you have gone severely off your soul plan “track”, your life may have probably become difficult…like everything seems to go wrong. If everything is going wrong, it is perhaps time to see what you can do to get back on track.
Have You Left Your Morals Behind?
If you’ve left your morals in the past, perhaps its time to bring them back; you had morals for a reason – it is like a checks and balancing system. It is not a weakness to do what is right – it takes more courage, and a strong person, to do what is right.
Have You Become Hardened or Bitter in Your Life?
If you have become hardened or bitter (which is often caused by jealousy, anger, sense of entitlement, etc.), please check to see if you put yourself into the energy of the victim role.
What hardened you? Perhaps the hardcore shell helped you over a hurtful period in your life – but now it is time to shed that and allow the gentleness and love we were created for to shine through.
Bitterness may be combined with entitlement; entitlement should not be part of our life.
Each being, you included, set up some goals to accomplish for your own soul growth – as well as having decided before you entered this body as to some life specifics (rich, moderate, poor; slim, fat, pretty, ugly, tall, short, etc.) as well as what you needed to experience for this lifetime.
There is no entitlement; no one “owes” you; there is no “if I only had ___ & ____, I know then that I have ‘made it’ “. Just because your neighbor, friend, coworker seems to have an idyllic life from your perspective doesn’t mean they do, and it doesn’t mean it is what you are supposed to do or have.
Please focus on you, your life and your soul growth – not worrying about what others have accomplished or are doing.
Are You Constantly Feeling Like Everything’s Being Done To You? Feeling like a Victim?
As long as you believe/feel that everything happens to you, the universe will comply to make your creation happen and assist you in perpetuating this belief.
Perhaps its time to take responsibility for your life and let go of the victim role; take your power back by seeing what good has come out of your experiences.
Your soul growth relies on your experiences – or rather how to react to your experiences.
If you react negatively (stuck as a victim – it was done to you, etc.) then chances are you will be provided another opportunity to experience a similar (similar in the energy reaction) event/incident to see if you can find the silver lining or the good that came out of the experience.
So, if you are stuck in a rut, and you honestly addressed anything written above that may have fit you – then I would recommend a change in perception. A “rut” could be an opportunity – a “diamond in the rough”; or perhaps you are to leave the well traveled rut and take a new path; maybe pride is interfering with acknowledging the truths you are being given; pride (which is ego my friends) really has no place in spiritual growth. Pride can stop your progress cold.
Soul Purpose – Supposed to Be Doing
We are each supposed to experience different aspects of being human – to learn from our growth opportunities – to assist others (without being a doormat) and to love self.
As far as job (or lack thereof) – what is your passion? What makes your soul sing when you do it? What creates positive energy for you? Don’t dream it…create it, live it – even if it is part time – experience what makes your soul sing.
In A Nutshell
If you are stuck, it is time to take an honest look at self and makes some changes.
Please do not compare your have and have nots with others lives – their soul plan is not yours; your responsibility is your life and your soul growth.
If working on the above mentioned stuff (honestly and objectively) and everything (not a few things, scattered here and there…that’s called life) is still going wrong – or if you aren’t able to cope with life – perhaps it is time to meet with a therapist who can help you resolve those imbalances.

“Okay, okay, OKAY, I get it!” I kept saying aloud but, apparently I didn’t get the message. Standard answers were not going to be acceptable, I was supposed to REALLY listen and then fess up.
You see, I’ve just flat out burned out. No flicker or sputter, just out like flipping a switch. I’d absorbed as much stuff as I could and thought I was some kind of glutton for punishment. Well, yes and no. I had taken on more than I needed to and I didn’t know how to put it where it belonged. (Thanks, Jan!)
It was time for a serious vacation and a re-grouping. So in true me fashion (because why wait when you can plow through in short order and clean up the carnage later) I put it where it belonged. Well, at least the majority of it. After some VERY direct talks with individuals and a little discussion with the ego, I think I’ve finally hit the right track.
As you can imagine, some folks weren’t too happy with me but I figure they’ll get over it. I know I did. I am not here to play mom, or hold hands so you can be irresponsible and lazy. I’m here to move forward and if that means I leave you kicking and screaming in the dust well, so be it. You can clean up your own mess. I’ve got enough to worry about for myself and it’s about time I came first.
I still love you, but I that doesn’t mean I have to like the way you play.
So no thank you, emotional vampires, energy suckers, miserable minnies, and doubting dans. Hasta la vista no way joses, and many mananas. This momma is moving on.
