Being JEN: The Art of Being Human
A New Paradigm: Integrating The Knowledge Of Ancient & Modern Civilization Into An Elegant Map While Journeying Through The Chakras + Evolutionary Consciousness
Being JEN is an audacious experiment by Jen Michaels in exploring The 7 Yogic Centers Of Consciousness (Chakra Systems) & their auras through a practical & personal guide while attempting to validate the needs facing us today physically, mentally, and spiritually.
While exploring the chakras, Jen presents practicality in a variety of ways to deeper understand the state of consciousness associated with each center. She demonstrates by doing and using the elements from the natural world & shows how they are all interconnected.
Through this practical approach, Jen has found a unique way to integrate her body’s subtle energy system with the wisdom of the world’s spiritual traditions to revitalize her energy & spirit.
Jen Michaels is a spiritual being (who is fascinated by nature) currently having a human experience.
Long ago, we made a promise to the universe. We opted to choose Earth as our home and live as fully spiritual beings on the physical plane. Through much of our recorded history, we have journeyed far from our original intent and only recently have approached a point of coming full circle. This glorious moment in time is aligning us to our highest spiritual nature in the physical plane as we remember our original plan to be here.
Being: All the qualities constituting one that exists; the essence.
JEN: This is a word from the Chinese. It means the art of being human, humanity. It means being charitable, loving and kind and having benevolent feelings towards one’s fellow man. “Universal love” is the logical extension of jen. In Chinese philosophy, jen means a compassionate love for humanity or for the world as a whole.
Being JEN is the essence of jen and is a wholistic approach to physical, emotional and spiritual vitality.
“Being a human being is truly an art, though few people think of it in this way.” – Jen Michaels, Master Artist.
In Numerology, JEN is 1+5+5=11
5 (the sum of all vowels) = Hearts Desire
6 (the sum of all consonants) = Personality
11 (the sum of both vowels and consonants) = Destiny
As a 5, JEN’s Hearts Desire is to be free from the old tapes and unconscious programming that has accumulated from others’ value systems and ideas of what is important in life. The goal is to be free to choose to live in the moment. While 5’s may have a strong desire to travel everywhere and experience everything, they may also have a tug on their heart to have the adventure of a true commitment in staying put. It all becomes a matter of choice. No path is superior to another, as long as the choice is in their able hands and they realize that “mistakes” are nothing more than other experiences.
As a 6, JEN’s Personality is of loving service. It radiates the colors of peach, scarlet, and heliotrope. It sings the musical note of F. There are many gemstones and minerals that vibrate with 6: jasper, onyx, topaz, Herkimer diamond, and citrine. The flowers are tulips, mistletoe, laurel, and chrysanthemums. The symbols are the hexagon, cube, and six-pointed star. Loyalty, idealism, responsibility, devotion, service, great love of beauty, social awareness, conscientiousness, truthfulness, and virtue are attributes of 6.
For centuries and lifetimes, 6 has taken care of us. It has nursed us, nurtured us, loved and supported us on all levels–emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially. It tends to put everyone ahead of itself and be the long-suffering martyr. This is the vibration that maintains the traditional standards, setting up rules and mores for the family and community to abide by. It watches everyone with a caring eye to make sure they are all doing the “right” thing, and has a strong tendency to feel guilty about almost everything.
As an 11 (Includes all the qualities of both 1 and 2), JEN’s Destiny is to be a spiritual teacher, visionary, peacemaker whose desire is to illuminate the world with its vision of harmony and cooperation. Colors are violet, yellow, black, white, apricot, and the gold from 2. Gemstones are garnet and sapphire; flowers are violet and camellia. The musical note is A. The guardian angel is Uriel.
11’s want to balance the feminine and masculine energies, and in doing so, achieve balance. And then go on to teach balance. Great integrity, strength, and gentleness are needed. 11/2 yearns to be both an oak tree and a willow, and can vacillate between those two or lean more strongly toward one side than the other. 11’s power comes from its strong intuition. It has the potential for being a great actor, easily wearing many faces. This can be scary if it does not know who it is underneath the facade. The two 1’s repeat “get real clear on who you are, live in honesty”‘ the 2 says “surrender your will to the higher Will and cooperate with life.” This is what the 11/2 has to teach the world, and it can only teach from its own experience. In the future, people will be led by teachings that agree with what feels right inside them. Seldom does 11/2 fit into any model of what a teacher “looks like.” It is teaching by what it does, not what it says. When the inner voices are contradicting each other, it is hard to decide which to follow. The 11/2 can be confusing to others, and more so to itself. It takes great courage to “invent life” – an 11/2 is doing just that. It is the vision carrier, carrying the dream.
