Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers:

Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers: "Sanaya (pronounced "sah-NIGH-ah") has told us that she is a collective consciousness of minds with both a feminine and masculine energy. This energy comes from a higher dimension than our own. When I bring through Sanaya's words, I am "tapping in" to Higher Consciousness. I am allowing that Consciousness to express itself through my body: through my brain, through my vocal cords, my arms, my hands, and also through my pen. Sanaya would not need a name, except for our human need to put labels on things and place our experiences into well-defined boxes. Sanaya takes us outside the box into a dimension where we come face to face with our higher selves. To hear the words of Sanaya as they come through ... to sit in the presence of that energy ... is a palpable experience of higher vibration ... of love. To read Sanaya's words can have the same result when you tune in to that finer energy as you read." (To read the full explanation of who and what Sanaya is along with transcripts of longer sessions click here.)

Perception of Perfection

Just like your concept of beauty, perfection is in the eye and mind of the beholder.  All is a matter of perception.  You as a temporary human being have been taught by other human beings the meaning of perfection.  You set it as a lofty goal.  You hold in your mind an ideal, and anything that falls short of this ideal is less than desirable.
Do you see how you cheat yourself and bring dissatisfaction into your life with this false belief that things should be better than they are?  You have perfection now, for all is in perfect order always.  It is your expectations which bring about dissatisfaction.  If you were to understand that all of creation is constantly changing and all is here for your growth and learning, then you would truly understand perfection from the larger view. 
You are perfect now as you are.  You are the perfect child of God, as are your brothers and sisters.  Love yourself and all others simply for being.  Then you will truly know and see perfection.

The Power of Prayer

What happens when you pray?  You set in motion a vibration.  Thoughts are aspects of consciousness, and consciousness is the creative force of the universe—that aspect of mind which you share with the One Divine Mind.  Using your consciousness in prayer, you create a link between you and that which you desire. 
Imagine a circuit between you and the desired outcome as a thing.  Until the prayer, this circuit exists in potentiality, but is unlighted.  Through the act of prayer, you activate this circuit and it lights up.   Seen now by your helpers, acknowledged by the Divine Mind, all forces can now conspire to activate whatever other circuitry is needed to fulfill this desire, this prayer.
Of course it is not exactly like this, but quite similar, and you do enjoy your analogies.  We wish you to understand how very powerful are your thoughts and prayers.  Light up the sky with prayers of peace and love for all mankind.  This type of prayer—that which benefits the greater good—carries the greatest power.  Never forget that you carry this Power within you.

Familiar  patterns of energy cause you to repeat the same actions time after time after time.  It is as if certain habits have become solidified.  What is matter and form, but energy following a specified pattern that Mind has brought into existence and that you now recognize.  Recognize how you have cemented certain actions, reactions, thoughts, and words into patterns.  Do they serve your Purpose?  Do they bring you happiness?  If not, it is you who breaks the pattern and forms new habits by creating with your thoughts.
Reactions, thoughts, and habits are not set in stone.  Stones represent quite slow, dense energy.  Energize your own awareness.  Stop harmful thoughts and reactions in your path and create new horizons.

The End of Illusion

 Coming toward you in the distance you see a figure dressed in a white robe.  Who could it be?  There is a radiance about the body—a luminous glow unlike any you have seen.  As this figure approaches, you cannot discern male or female, but the energy is pure love.  Are angels real?  If so, then this angelic apparition is that. 
It steps close to you—so close you can feel a tingling in your hands and feet.  Your heart swells as if to burst.  Tears of recognition well in your eyes.  "I have been waiting for you so long," you say.  And this radiant form nods in loving greeting.  Then, with one final step, it steps inside you, blending completely with you, and it is a perfect fit.  You now know completeness. 
"Where have you been?" you ask in wonder, and the voice answers, "I have been here all along, but you have been looking outside yourself for me.  A small illusion did I perform to get you to recognize me, but now you know:  We are One.  Breathe deeply now, my child, and welcome Me home."

Have you been loving enough?  Where are you focusing your love?  Is your focus on the self, on things of the material world, or on matters of the Spirit?  Do not berate yourself if you have been a bit human-focused of late.  You are, after all, a human, but it does take focus to remember that you are spirit first and foremost, love at your essence.  It is for this that we come:  to remind you … to give you these little nudges you call "coincidence" to let you know you are not alone. 
Find a way that suits you to remember who you are.  Find a method that causes you to stop in the middle of your self-focus and focus on the greater Self.  This will bring all else into greater focus as you remember that all that matters is that which never changes.

Use Your Will Wisely

A law is something unchangeable—
That on which you can rely.
In your world is Cause and Effect.
This Law you can't deny.
You think at times that chaos
Is in fact the norm.
But this is just a factor
Of the acts man does perform.
For man is free to choose at will
Just how he does create.
And so at times there's love and light,
And at others strife and hate.
It is your task to find the peace
That lies within the heart.
To know that of the laws of God
You are a vital part.
And when time comes to make a choice
Your heart and mind you'll still,
And there together with your Source
You'll wisely use your will.

No Limits

This is how it begins: with trust. Trust that the words will come. And then surrender. Surrendering the ego, which wants to say, “You are making this up.” But in your heart you know the truth: There is a greater aspect to all of you—far greater than your minds with their present focus on earthly things can imagine. Remove your focus from human attributes and yes—soar—as high as you can fly. There along the way you will meet guides and helpers and the Self … your Higher Self.

Pause while you enjoy this free flight and get to know your Self. It is hand-in-hand with this unlimited aspect of yourself that you will bring into your life all that you dream of accomplishing and all that you need to know. You will come back to earth again, of course, but once you have made the acquaintance with your unlimited Self you will never again settle for limitations.

How high can you fly? The sky is not the limit at all.

The Real "Wows"

Be not always seeking the big "wows" from Spirit—the giant pieces of evidence which leave your mouth gaping.  Seek instead evidence that Spirit is at work within you in more subtle ways as you go through every moment.  Watch yourself and see how you are changing as you awaken ever more to the true reality that you are Spirit.  Do you not feel more love for others?  Are you not feeling more compassion and less judgment? 
Are you still judging yourself too harshly?  Seek, then, this "wow":  to see yourself with equal compassion and understanding that you are learning to have for others.  Seek equanimity.  Seek peace.  These come subtly, but in the eyes of Spirit, these are truly "wows."

Lean In

The quiet rustle of leaves signals a presence.  Is it a small animal, an approaching stranger, or simply the presence of a breeze?  Listen more carefully.  You lean in and tilt the head, your senses on alert.  Yes, but what do you feel?  Is it danger or are you safe?  You are quite used to using this sensing faculty in this way, so why do you not think that you can sense other information simply by listening more carefully with the spirit?
All humans have so-called psychic abilities.  It is not magic.  It is simply an awareness of perturbations in the sea of energy in which you are immersed.  When your personal field feels the changes in waves of energy around and within you, you call this intuition.  Lean in.  Listen more closely.  This is called attunement.  There is no end to what you can discern when you open your mind to the reality beyond the senses and feel with the spirit.

Attraction in Action

Visualize success and it is yours,
For from your thoughts success it pours.
It's when you doubt, that then you fail
For thoughts of doubt then do prevail.
You will become that which you see
For in your mind your thoughts run free.
So harness them and give them shape
Constructing form like paper with tape.
Thoughts are things.  Hear us now.
If you doubt this, we'll show you how:
Hold an image in your mind…
The clearest picture that you can find.
Surround this now with thoughts of success.
Do not allow in anything less.
Nurture this image in the days ahead.
Think of it as you lie in your bed.
And when you awaken and get on with your day.
On naught but success should you then pray.
But sit not back and fail to act.
Remember this important fact.
Together with Spirit you co-create.
If total success is to be your fate,
Then pray and act with success in mind
And the power you need is what you'll find.
This is not magic.  It's how Spirit shows
That all that exists from thought arose.
So hold your intentions perfectly clear
And all you desire will then draw near.

Out of Your Shell

Do you at times feel uncomfortable around others?  Do you not feel at home in your own skin?  This is due to two causes.  The first is a lack of resonance.  You and the others do not emit the same energetic vibration.  You will naturally drift apart.  The other cause—known to you as shyness or awkwardness—is merely a lack of recognition on your part that all of you are spirit at your core.  Shyness is a reflection of a belief system which you have bought into which tells you that you are somehow inferior or unworthy, and that the other can cause you discomfort.  This false belief causes you actual discomfort.
If you were to replace this belief system with the knowingness that you are as worthy, valuable, interesting, and loveable as all others, and that nothing another could say or do could harm you, then you would emerge from your shell and radiate openness, acceptance, happiness, and love.  These attributes are your true nature.  Shyness is born of misunderstanding.  Understand us well:  You have no need to hide who you are.  You are a beloved child of God, equal in the eyes of God to all others.

Outside the Box

Do not berate yourself for not going along with the crowd. Do you now realize how many do so because they have learned that this is the route to approval? Always follow your heart and your instincts. If these lead you down a solo path, so be it. You are an individual. Does this fly in the face of oneness? Not at all. Have we not taught you repeatedly that you are an individual focus of the Source? Quite so. And so, if all of God’s creations did this or that merely to go along with the crowd, where would be the learning? Where would be the growth? These take place from those with the courage to step outside the box and be different.

Express your individuality. Be bold and adventurous. It is okay to think of the self every now and then instead of the group. Come from a place of love, and always you will make a good choice.

From the Fount

A source. What is this? The beginning. The fount of a thing. The source of a river begins as a drop of water. It becomes a trickle, then a stream, which grows ever larger and flows until it becomes something much greater. Yes, it becomes fully part of an ocean.

You and all that you see and know have a source. This Source is all knowing, all powerful, and oh, yes, all loving, or you would not have the urge within you to have love in your life. This Source is who you are, for this Source created you.

You are currently “being” in form, but your Source is both “being” and “non-being,” both loving as an attribute and love, itself, in its most pure state. It is beyond comprehension to you at this time, yet you know Source energy, for it courses through you. If you wish to know your Source even better, set this as your intention. That is the driving force of your source. Source created you with the greatest of intentions. The greatest intention you can enjoy is to be as much like your source as possible. How do you do this? Be the source of love. It is that simple.

Cycles and Circles

Circular movements represent the shape of creation.  All arises from the void and returns again to silence.  All is vibration.  You arose from the mind of the Divine Mind, beginning as pure spirit and to Spirit you will return.  You experience what you know as birth and death, but these are merely re-cycling of the spirit into a form which can undergo experience.
Do you see the origin of this word "re-cycle"?  Look at nature, and there you will see countless cycles.  All is cyclical in a world without end.  This is why you can take comfort in the phrase, "This too shall pass."  There will always be sunshine after the rain.  Yes, this means the rains will come again as well, but understanding the nature of cycles and your nature as a spirit-being, you can ride the wave in peace.

Reflecting the Highest

All of life is an imitation.  What you perceive with the body is merely a reflection of an idea.  That which began as thought took on a vibration until it "solidified," in your terms.  All retains a specific vibration, and this is how you recognize things—by the consistency of the vibration.
Others recognize you by the consistency of your vibration.  As you take on new thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, your vibration changes, at times to the point where others say, "You have changed so much.  I no longer recognize you."  Your basic vibration as a human remains, but you have molded your energy field with your thoughts and behaviors.  Others sense this about you.  As you change, you resonate with similar vibrations in others and may no longer resonate with those who have not changed.  This oft requires an adjustment in relationships.
You are a reflection of the Creator.  All of life is an imitation of how life began as an idea—as a "word."  In the beginning was the Word.  All is in constant evolution as the word evolves and the vocabulary of creation increases.  What word do you wish to reflect?  What aspect of the grand idea do you wish to imitate?  Be prepared for changes as you do so, for life is all about change as you go about expressing and reflecting the purest vibration of All That Is.

Countless times you have cried out, "Oh, God, help me!"  You do so when you feel utterly alone and powerless, when you are in pain, or facing some great challenge.  You do so knowing intuitively that you are not alone, or you would not cry out at all.
It is true.  You are never alone.  If you knew how truly loved and surrounded by Spirit you are, you would never experience this word you call "lonely."  God is there when you feel no need for crying.  You are immersed in God's love.  You breathe because this Love animates you.
So cry out, if you must, but God knows when you need assistance.  If it helps you to remember, then cry loudly.  But at other times fail not to whisper softly, "Thank you for this gift of life.  May I use it wisely, and may thy will be done."

What Do You Expect?

Expectations … they follow a spectrum from high to low, from beyond the stars to none at all.  From whence come these hopes and dreams or lack thereof?  All come from a seed of an idea.  All arise from the mind, and there they are left to you to grow.  Even if you have no expectations, the seed is still there, or you would not be aware of the lack.  Is this not so?
How will you choose to nurture your ideas?  Expectations go hand in hand with belief.  If you think you can, you can.  It is that simple.  If you have no expectations, it is quite likely the seed will never sprout.
Expectations are fed by your own mind, yes, but do you not also allow others to feed them?  Be aware always of your thoughts.  How high can you raise your expectations?  Why, there is no limit, for you, like your Creator, have no bounds.  Consciousness is infinite.  Reach for the sky, and then soar beyond it.

Get On With It

Take the time to stop every so often and remember why you are here.  It is not to make money.  It is not to constantly be doing.  It is simply to be.  "To be what?" you ask.  To be an expression of your Source.  If your Source is all goodness and love, then all you need do is be these things.  You can do this in all that you do.  And so, if you make no money or if you make much money, you can still fulfill your purpose.  If you make things or if you make no-thing, you can still make love with all things.
Take the time to pause every so often.  As you do so, give gratitude to your Source for your existence.  Ask, "Am I on track?  Am I serving your purpose?"  And then, get on with it.  Get on with the wonderful process of being that which you are.

Center Yourself

We have spoken of zippers in the past … of how the teeth must fit together just so or  they do not function.  The same is true of your closet doors that ride a track.  If not centered on the rail, they do not move as designed.  Yet you push, and shove, and pull, and curse.  "What is wrong with this thing?  Why does it not do my bidding?"  In such a circumstance, the zipper and the door are not centered, and neither are you, my friend.  Like the zipper, you gnash your teeth.  Like the closet door, you bump along.
Yet, what happens when you take a deep breath and center yourself?  Draw in a breath of peace.  Slow down and look at the situation from another angle.  Approach with a gentle touch.  Lo and behold, all slips into place and glides easily.  Pay attention to your bodily sensations and your thoughts as you go about your day.   When you find yourself gnashing, center yourself and glide.

Ever Upward

Do not meet hatred with hatred.  Greet anger not with angst.  These lower vibrations only add to the mix.  Anger, hatred, and intolerance are the byproducts of ignorance.  There is a reason you call darkness darkness.  Such lower vibrations represent a lack of light.  Light represents goodness, love, compassion, and kindness.  How do you bring more light into a world where many still walk in darkness?  You do not stumble about in the darkness yourself, do you?  No, my friend.  You turn on a flashlight and light the way for others. 
In the challenges ahead, remember these words.  Always do you have a choice to turn on your light and help to raise the vibrations around you, or to merely add to the darkness.  Let there be light.  May it shine brightly from your heart as you lead the way ever upward.

Outside the Box

"Break out of the box."  "They broke the mold when they made you."  These are expressions of creativity, are they not?  What kind of box have you placed around yourself?  How do your thoughts box you in?  Your spirit-essence does not exist in a box.  It is boundless, limitless, and everywhere at once.  Yes, your physical body appears to have boundaries, but you are not confined within these.  Step out with your mind into the sea of all possibilities and begin swimming, unencumbered by walls and boundaries.
If you find it difficult to escape your little box, then for now simply take off the lid.  Open your crown chakra and allow new ideas to flow in.  Soon they will build to such a point that you cannot help but break free of the self-imposed sides of the box which remain.

The Grand Reality

You currently perceive the world through your five senses, for this is where you place your attention.  But does not a dog perceive the world differently?  Yes, for it sees not the same colors as you do due to different physical receptors within the eye.  And does not a plant perceive the world differently?  Yes, for it has no eyes at all.  Yet all have Consciousness.  All beings perceive reality differently based on their method of perceiving.  For each individual, perception is truly their reality.
So, what is truly real?  What is the one thing that never changes?  Step back behind the perceiver.  Who or what is perceiving the perceiver?  There is only one mind.  How boring would be existence if there were only one experience.  Instead, the One Mind has fragmented itself into billions and billions of focuses of consciousness to perceive its creation from every possible angle.  Yours is one.  Your neighbor's is another.  Your cat's is another.  And in that diversity, the Great Creator rejoices and enjoys.  So, rejoice and enjoy your reality today.  You are co-creating in a grand way. 
Isn't it truly grand to be a part of the One?

Like a Child

Your sacred writings tell you to be as a child.  There is great wisdom in this.  Let us examine why.  It is because of this very reason!  The adult examines everything, dissects things, and then worries about them … sees the flaws in them, sees the impossibility, sees the limitation, and sees the potential for failure.
Now let us not examine it.  Let us simply be childlike.  Let us play.  Let us rejoice.  Let us laugh and spin about for no reason whatsoever, with no explanation other than that it feels good.
Joyful.  Is this not how the Creator wishes to enjoy its creation?  Be as the child:  full of joy, curiosity, and unbridled love for all things.  You have learned to be an adult by watching adults.  As a child you wanted nothing more than to be grown up.  Now that you are there, it is okay now to regress for a while and remember your true nature as a free spirit.

Learning to Trust

Note from Suzanne: I felt a bit silly when I posted yesterday's message from Sanaya. I mean, really ... surfing? The whole "Cowabunga" thing seemed far from spiritual, but I've learned to trust what I hear. So ... I sat down last evening to continue reading a book I'd been led by spirit to buy the day before. There, on page 31, was the phrase, "surf the wave of grace." All I could do was shake my head in wonder. I could have five books on the go at once, and Sanaya always knows what I'm going to read that day. Sending love to all of you from the spirit world ...

And today, a message for all of us:

“He who runs the fastest wins the race.”
This phrase is a falsehood.
It’s the one who runs an even pace
Who achieves the greatest good.

There’s no need to exert effort.
No need to try so hard.
By trusting in the Highest Cause,
All good you can regard.

Why is it some do try and try?
With great exertion they do sweat.
Because the word “surrender”
Has not their belief system entered yet.

When finally you realize
That in a higher power you can trust,
Then all the power you’ve exerted
Is no longer a great “must.”

“Relax and trust,” the simple keys
To living in the flow.
Turn all your cares to God and then
Great peace inside you’ll know.

Cowabunga! (Did we not promise you a bit of wit?)

What makes a wave rise?  It is your laws of physics.  Laws are in effect in all aspects of your world.  Were this not so, there would not be growth, only chaos.  Due to the laws of nature and the Law of Love, there is growth ever upward.  You call this "evolution."
At the present time you are experiencing a surge in the evolution of human consciousness.  Jump on your surfboard, my friend, and ride this wave.  Stand fearlessly at the crest and call to those below you:  "Come along!  It is not as frightening as it seems!  In fact, it is quite exhilarating."
As you push aside the fear of new experiences and new beliefs, you help to raise your consciousness and that of those around you.  Ride the wave, for it will take you to new heights of love, to new heights of understanding.  Once you have achieved each new level of mastery, there is no turning back.  Then you will realize that the ride is endless and ever enjoyable.
Surf on.

Like a Child

A baby's smile lights up a room.  So innocent are they.  They draw those around them like a magnet.  You want to touch their tiny toes, to stroke their hair, and to cuddle them to the breast.  Why this attraction?  It is the innocence.  The purity.  These new-born souls are the mirror of your soul.  You look at them and there is a recognition, and yes, desire.  "Wouldn't it be nice to have no worries?  To be so innocent?"
You can return to this state of grace at any time simply by shifting your consciousness from earthly concerns to the realm of Spirit.  It is in you now.  Access it with a simple shift in focus.  Aha.  There is the tiny child—that seed of innocence and pure love.  That pearl is who you are.  Tiny babies are mere reminders.  Set your worries aside for a moment and be childlike.  This short respite is indeed rejuvenating on multiple levels.  Be young at heart, for your soul is ageless.

The Magic of Creation

Mickey Mouse is one of your cartoon figures, created by a man of great vision—a man who had an idea and allowed it to grow into an empire.  This Walt Disney created a kingdom, did he not?  A magic kingdom where happiness reigns, filled with laughter, and joy, and colorful characters that make children smile.  All of this from one little mouse.
"That is a Mickey Mouse concept," you sometimes hear, and in this case, the term is a bit derogatory, meaning small and somewhat silly.  Do you see how ideas take on their own lives?  They begin as seeds of consciousness and grow, depending upon how they are nurtured along the way by all of the interconnected minds that handle this seed of an idea.
Do you not see now how the kingdom truly does lie within?  Will you birth Mickey Mouse ideas as silly and inconsequential, or as grand creations which go on to produce joy, laughter, and love in your world?  It truly is a magic kingdom when you use the magic wand within your limitless mind and create miracles.

Oh God in the heavens, may I know that heaven is where I sit. May I feel your presence in all that I do. May I see you in every face and every flower. May I know you in every second and every hour. May there not be a moment that passes that I do not know that I am guided ... never alone, but held safely in your arms, rocked like a baby, fully loved. In that knowingness--in the full security of your love and protection--may I go forth this day and create with you heaven on earth.

Always in Control

At times your life goes off in directions you did not foresee. At times you feel a bit out of control. Never forget that it is not you who controls this great drama you call life. You play a vital part, but the drama would not exist, save for the Director. When things pick up speed and begin to careen, take your foot off the pedal and coast. In these moments of easing off, remember who is truly doing the driving. In that knowledge, relax, take deep breaths, and then surrender the need to feel frenzied.

There is no need to do anything other than take one step at a time, knowing you are always guided. There is no need to control anything. Loosen the reins and give your full faith and trust to the One which reigns over all.

High Praise

Flattery will get you anywhere. Why is this so? Because your fellow human beings are so very hungry for recognition and reassurance. Most only have the dimmest recognition that they are truly divine beings. Until fully awakened, they look outside themselves for goodness, love, and affirmation of their worth.

Try it, why don't you? Dole out compliments like candy and watch others respond with great eagerness. Those who do not accept your flattery need it most of all. Do you see the power you have to heal? It is simply a matter of being the divine being that you are and helping others to recognize this within themselves.

Show your light to others. Flatter them with your loving attentions, and in this way be a true healer of souls.
