In this inaugural episode, John tells the story of the epiphany that set him on the path of awakening to the inner voice, and what it offers to help you navigate a blue pill world.
The election season is in full force, and battle lines are drawn. It’s bringing out the worst in people, causing some to excuse or overlook the corruption and collusion revealed in #Wikileaks Podesta emails and #ProjectVeritas.
In this broadcast, John Dennison discusses the challenges awakening servers face in trying to negotiate the energies of conflict that are dragging all of us into their fight.
The path of service is fraught with obstacles. In this video, John discusses some of the issues of mission block and what you might do if your mission is not working out the way you want.
Here’s John Dennison’s latest episode of “Change Yourself. Change Your World.”
In this video, he discusses the process of making choices and living by the light of your soul. Enjoy.
John speaks on your inner world and how to use your inner voice to navigate your inner and outer affairs.
Here’s the video:
Some who seek to serve are motivated by the desire to act, but their efforts are continually frustrated along the way. No matter what they try to do to make their mark, it never seems to manifest or reach those for whom their efforts are intended.
I call this type of person the Wanna-be Server. This is not meant judgmentally (for in our society those who “do” often look down with contempt on those who want to do but for some reason “do not,” and call them wanna-bes) in any way, nor is it the mark of a failure.
To the contrary, such frustrated efforts can bring experiences of great value, both to the one who tries and fails and to the whole that vicariously draws upon his contribution.
Sometimes the inability stems from inner conditions that block the way, such as deep-seated fears, mis-beliefs, or emotional scars. At others, though, the soul may wish to gather such an experience to balance out lifetimes of intensive service or being served, by spending some time in the no-man’s land in between.
At all costs self-judgment must be avoided, and the byproducts of beating one’s head against the proverbial wall (like anger and frustration) set aside, for those tend to lock in the “failure” and call it back for recreation again at some future time in this linear reality.
Instead, a time out is necessary to examine all the energies that are flowing through you, acknowledging their presence and contribution to your experience, and then connecting with your higher self for guidance as to whether a continuation of this experience is what is really planned for your life at this moment in time.
Even if it is, try to go about your efforts to serve in a new way, with a new set of emotions. Try to find joy and fulfillment even within the situations that you now see as impasses or failures. For in shifting the way you see and experience them, your soul may find it has no more need to keep creating them, and will begin to create something else.
And if it is not, such an approach will enable you to better receive and act upon its guidance on whether and how to redirect your life stream or perhaps to express your desire to serve in some other way.
It’s not easy being a wanna-be server. Sitting on the sidelines can be excruciating, and only the greatest masters will accept such a task for very long. If you remain within such a situation, use it as best you can. And by all means, don’t see yourself as a failure, but rather as a great master who is trying on a most difficult experience for size.
God bless you indeed.
Our brains are fascinating things! They are constantly computing massive amounts of data and speeds we can’t even comprehend. As humans, our minds are constantly applying labels to things, giving us clues as to how we perceive the world around us.
This is such an incredible function and allows us to process and learn and grow! However, it’s easy for our minds to fall into a trap of hiding behind our labels.
Truth be told this is a learned process, giving labels is something that can come from our upbringing, society, media, or our experiences. Yet the impact this has on our psychological view of the world is that it makes us constantly try to read into new experiences or situations and figure out which label to put on them: “good” or “bad.”
I move to show you that by merely making that judgement, we are predetermining our response to all the “bad” things that come our way as things we have no use for. This sets us up on the defense, consistently trying to stop all the “bad” experiences from happening, much like a goalie in a soccer or hockey game. And after awhile, it gets exhausting playing defense all the time.
What I am proposing could be a very radical idea to most. I’m proposing to truly master the consciousness of one’s perspective of how we choose to see ourselves in relation to the world around us. Through this, even the most horrific life experiences can become a great source of knowledge and growth.
It requires changing the lens of world view. Instead of predetermining whether something is good or bad, choose to see each moment and circumstance as a gift to help us better ourselves. Changing this view gives you creative power in choosing how you will take each situation to better yourself for the next moment.
This can be difficult to see when we get disappointed or feel frustrated, or even hurt by the experience we are having.

Our society is yearning for a new breed of leaders, a set of leader that will take us out of the “every man for himself” mindset our society finds itself.
The bottom line can no longer be the sole standard in which we operate. This new generation in the workforce is calling for their work to have meaning, to have impact, to reap intrinsic rewards that go beyond just the number in our bank accounts. We no longer need just leaders; we need a new breed: The Conscious Leader.
John Quincy Adams is quoted as saying “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
Are you ready to inspire? Do you want to instill passion in others for a shared goal or value? Are you ready to make an impact on the world around you?
Here are 5 steps that will not only allow you to lead more effectively but truly learn the ways to lead your organization, group, team or individuals to go above and beyond for a shared purpose.
Your team, your company, and the world is looking for you, Conscious Leader! Will you step up to the challenge? People are yearning to be developed, accepted, valued.
As John Quincy said, if you’re ready to inspire others to dream, learn, do and become more and you’re ready to step up and become a conscious leader, then call us. MissionLaunch is ready to help take your company or you to the next level, to help you invest in your people so that together you can dream, do and become so much more.
This question is often whispered by many servers, usually when they’re alone and no one is around to hear but the God within. “Why do I struggle so?”
They’ve done everything they know to do, and worked to evolve themselves the best they can. They’ve felt the call of their soul to embark upon the mission, and answered it. But it hasn’t brought them success in very many regards. Sure, they’ve experienced moments of it here and there, but overall it leaves them wanting, struggling for a goal that remains beyond reach.
There can be many underlying spiritual themes at play in such situations, including dramas, distractions and distortions caused by inner conditions being raised for them to address. Yet something more is at work here that most servers overlook, instead beating themselves up thinking their troubles are related to some inner deficiency they have failed to overcome.
While those factors may be going on, and to some degree are in each of us, it is is important not to let the self-judgment overwhelm the ongoing effort to contribute, nor the bringing forth of the inner self at our core.
So let us look at the struggle to develop a “successful” mission in another way.
This is the time of changes. Things don’t work the way they used to.
The energies available for our creative efforts do not respond to outer will, and render old skill sets much like rusty tools lying unused in the tool box.
As a result, we find ourselves frustrated trying to develop missions that make a difference as well as provide us the support we need to maintain our lives and lifestyles. We’re all thumbs, working in the dark trying to assemble a creation with unfamiliar tools, with barely a glimpse of the plans for what it will look like when finished.
It is this uncertainty, this darkness, to which we must adjust. Though the light in us is strong, it does not clearly illuminate our way through the world nor the contribution we’re trying to make.
While some of our attempted contributions may be of significance to the outer world, their greatest importance is the opportunity they offer us to explore the energies of this time of transition and to find a way to balance them within us and the lives we’re living.
We have chosen to incarnate now to experience the transition of energies from a world of three-dimensional duality to one of greater ability to integrate those extremes into a unified whole. Our struggles are the natural result of that effort, where we are seeing the impact of those new energies in our lives and missions.
It is not simply to make a shift and one day suddenly go from duality to integration. The shock to our systems, and our world, would be too great. Instead, we have to learn to work with and within those new energies and use them in new ways, essentially through our efforts developing by trial and error the foundations upon which future generations will build the new world.
We are more than explorers; we are pioneers who’ve come to carve out a place for mankind in this new world. But we live in a harsh environment, having to face risks and uncertainties that run far deeper than the superficial problems in our world today.
This new world requires a greater connection with source, and an ability to create in more subtle ways than just force of outer will and desire. These are important, and will remain part of our toolbox. But they must be wielded by an inner guidance and ability to marshal the creative substances without the distorting effects of the inner conditions that manifest runaway dramas and relegate our core desires to the scrapheap of wishful thinking.
Therefore our efforts to build missions and make a difference in the world will serve as vehicles by which we clear out this dross while developing the abilities and perspectives needed to fully function in the new environment that is now beginning to unfold.
Struggle may be part of the game, but that doesn’t mean we do so without peace. Rather, it is the integration of the energies of peace within us that will allow us to move through the difficulties of the transition and weather the storms ahead.
For there will be indeed storms, not just for our missions but for the world at large. It will be up to us to hold high the inner flame so that we might show others the way to negotiate the minefields and begin to make their transition as well.
Whether we do so with full awareness or eyes closed shut is the choice of each of us. We think it will help to know what’s going on so you can move through these energies in a better way.
We’re here to help. Don’t hesitate to ask.
No, I’m not going to take you on some meditative journey. Rather, today is about how you might ride out the energetic troughs that inevitably hit every server.
First, some perspective. Everything is made up of energy. And energy is intelligence.
Certain types of energy — that which comes from our source — resonates with and within us more than others. It carries to us “information,” or if you will, light that illuminates our awareness and provides direction on how to create and process the lives we’re living.
I refer to this energy from our source as the inner flow. By tapping into it we “hear” our inner voice, or more particularly, the chorus of voices that is continually flowing to us from inside.
A particular aspect of this inner flow is to carry inspiration and desire. These fuel our missions, motivating us to think about and act upon them to manifest them in the 3D world.
Being within the flow brings feelings of peace and joy, for it indeed home to us, a natural state that reminds us (energetically, at least) of who we are and where we are from. At least for me, it is a high of indescribable pleasure and sense of fulfillment in the moment against which physical sensation pales.
When that flow is cut off or we move outside it, the opposite occurs. It’s like a drug addict going cold turkey, moving from a state nearing euphoria to an energetic depression.
Certainly it is hard to remain within the flow at all times, especially focused on matters of mission advancement. And frankly, I wouldn’t recommend it anyway. After all, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
But going from its absolute high to the deep low of its absence can be excruciating for those who learn to live and work within it (it can also increase susceptibility to some of our emotional triggers — another story for another day).
This low is what I refer to as the void. It is the energetic “hole” that is created when we move outside the creative energies of our light into something else.
Truly, though, this state is not a void at all. Forces of all kinds bombard us all the time, impacting our moods and how our lives unfold. However, most of those other forces lack the harmonic alignment with our egoic energies necessary to bring us the great high of being within the flow, if we can even perceive them at all.
Nevertheless, “void” conveys the idea that we’re outside the flow and have to get by without its guidance, inspiration, good feelings, or whatever else it brings.
Being within the void is uncomfortable. It can leave us lost, drifting, questioning ourselves, our missions, our choice of careers, and even our relationships. But this does not mean the void is without value for the awakening server.
The void offers us the chance to take a pause and reflect on where we are, how we got there, and where we’re going with our lives. The mission is, after all, simply a creative expression to manifest our intention for a particular life, lifestyle or contribution to others, played out through a specific set of activities that we think will advance our cause.
In a sense, it is a chance to catch our breath and look around at where we are, to experience the beauty and wonder of the reality that’s already been created for our consumption without the distraction of the future one we hope will be.
It allows to look at what we did to get where we are, and re-examine the choices we made and how we interacted with life around us to get there. In short, the void is sort of a mini-soul review that allows us a few moments to recalibrate ourselves for the next set of experiences our souls require.
What those are may not be particularly clear. It usually isn’t, especially within the void. But then, there are many aspects of our inner processes that escape our outer awareness, and this is just one of many. It’s importance, though, cannot be overemphasized, for it allows our souls to decide whether a course correction is necessary without the life crises it might otherwise create to get our attention.
So if you are experiencing the void, do your best to enjoy it. Or at least tolerate it with greater awareness of what it might offer you.
Just don’t leave it all up to your soul. Much of that taking stock can be done by you at a conscious egoic level, and how you see and process it will help your soul decide what it needs next.
Maybe that next won’t be the mission you’re on at all, but some new direction to explore. Then again, maybe it will find it has no more need for all the struggles that were put in your way before, and re-routes your course to one of greater ease and impact.
Trust that whatever happens next is what will be needed for you at that time in this life. Now, though, you are where you are, outside the flow that you have begun to know and love. And that, too, is a valuable experience to acquire on your journey through life.
Try to make it with love. God bless you indeed.
