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."

Peeking Through

In darkness you live, stumbling about, groping for truth, groping to find your way.  You turn a corner and see a bit of light.  It is refreshing, full of hope.  It feels so very different.  You no longer can settle for darkness, and so you stumble on, but not quite so blindly any longer, until a bit more light reveals itself.  Now you are beginning to change.  You most definitely cannot go back to stumbling. 

Truth is Light.  The light is Love.  Darkness, merely lack of understanding Truth … neither good nor bad, but oh so far from Light that you must move ever-onward toward full brightness, full knowing.

Seek the Light and you shall find it.  Make the choice always for Light and you will be guided by that self-same Light, for it is the light of the Soul calling, and you are That.  You have found the key.  You have found your way Home.

Tick tock, tick tock … notice the rhythm in the beats.  Your heart beats to a rhythm.  The seasons move in rhythm with the rotation of the sun.  Order, order.  That is what Life represents.  Where there is seeming chaos, beneath it is a greater Order.  Trust in this.

Tick tock, the minutes of your life appear to move past, when in fact you are standing still.  There is only now, playing past you like a movie.  Ride upon a bicycle and imagine for a moment that you are standing still.  Watch the world ride past.  You have this greater perspective from an airplane when it seems you are standing still as the world moves under you.

Tick tock, tick tock, time is an illusion—an orderly way to view an orderly world.  In your current reality, time brings order and predictability.  Rely upon it and feel secure, but rely upon this:  You cannot separate yourself from the hands of time or from the beating of a heart in your current reality, for they are all projections of the One Mind of which you are a part.  Relax and know that all is in perfect Order.

Yes, wire can be used to keep creatures in or out of a space, but at times it is believed that a simple fence is not enough.  Then the barbs are added.  Humans know that inflicting pain will keep others out.  Barbs inflict pain.

Do you not at times do the same with your words?  Your actions and body language alone at times are enough to fence yourself off and keep others away.  Then you add the barbs.  Oh yes, they most certainly can inflict pain and are most effective at keeping others away.

What would happen if you took down the fence?  Why, then you would be vulnerable.  Or, so you think.  Then you would be free, my friend.  Think of your Great Plains before there were fences.  Such freedom!  Fences and barbs cause separation and division where there truly is none. 

You have no need for fences in your life.  You are fully safe and loved without them.  And with no fences—with no false separation—there can be no place for barbs.  Where there is openness, there is freedom.  Where there is freedom, love reigns.

Allow yourself to be guided.  We ask you to picture a blind man.  The blind man has a choice.  He can use a cane and swing it blindly in front of him, feeling about for dangers and obstacles.  He can also choose to use the senses of another in the form of a guiding dog.  With total trust in the consciousness of another, the blind man now steps forward, led by love … the unconditional love of his guide.  He no longer stumbles about, knowing the dog will not let him stumble.  There is a bond between them based on trust, based on love, based on service.

Can you put your hand on the lead of the One who is there to guide you?  Can you step out with full trust that you will not stumble?  It takes training to work with Your Guide.  The cues are subtle, but always are they present, for Your Helper never leaves your side. 

Reach out.  Trust.  Step forward as a team—a true partnership, bonded by love—and be guided.

A Special Request from Suzanne

Hello, friends.  As part of my next book project, I'd love your help.  Do you have any special posts from Sanaya that you have "earmarked" or saved in some way because the words truly spoke to you?  If so, please send me an email (srgiesemann@aol.com)  and let me know the date or title of the post.  Feel free to reference more than one if you have several favorites.  Thanks so much.  With love, Suzanne

Mmmmm ...

Surround yourself with loving friends—not because you need an outside source of love.  It is like candy.  Do you truly need candy?  Of course not.  It is a special treat.  It reminds you that some things are enjoyed simply for the pleasure they bring. 

Your friends bring you far more than pleasure.  They bring you companionship, advice, and opportunities for growth, but at times they are simply like morsels of chocolate.  Sometimes it is good for the soul to sit in the company of those with whom you share great resonance and do just that.

Hum on, dear friends, hum on.

A New Way of Seeing

In every man’s heart there is goodness.  Do not forget this.  It is easy to feel this as a lie when you see a man or woman performing acts contrary to what you know as goodness.  But always remember that beyond the body, beyond appearances, lies the Soul, which is naught but good, naught but God, or that being you perceive would not be there for you to perceive. 

See beyond perceived “badness” and look for the Good.  If it is occluded from your sight, ask your very Soul why this is so.  Is it the fault of the other or of your own perception, or of both?  Are you truly separate?  If you believe the answer to be yes, then you will continue to see “badness.”  If you know the answer to be no, then you will see the “goodness” even if your fellow humans would judge differently. 

Open your heart and you will open your eyes to a new way of seeing.

There You Are!

Do not devalue the worth of any other, for in so doing, you are belittling God.  Once again, we remind you that all is of the Creator.  What you see as the human part you know as individuality, but it is merely a creative, individualized aspect of the Creator, expressing with the free will with which it is endowed.  Such beauty!  Such Love does give it this human experience.  The humanness may mask the beauty and love, but only, only, my friend, in your perception.

See past the humanness to the Spirit.  See God, the Love behind the thoughts and actions, no matter how far they may seem to you from your limited view of God.  Look upon another and rejoice, saying, “Oh, God!  There you are!”

If you truly knew what you were seeing, you would either drop to your knees or run up and embrace the other.  Look upon all others anew today and rejoice.  Honor thy neighbor and honor thyself.  It is all God.

Ask and you shall receive.  But be aware of how very powerful consciousness is.  ask and you shall receive exactly what your thoughts have asked for.  Be specific in your request, but at the same time, be aware that God always has the bigger picture and the greatest good in Mind.  Ah, yet another paradox.  Can you ask and surrender at the same time?  This is the meaning of “Not my will, but Thy will be done.”  You have asked, and this is a most excellent start.  If your requests are not answered, examine your exact thoughts more closely.

Give and Take

Give and take … you know this as a rule of life.  When there is balance there is harmony.  Give, give, give of your love, not so that you will get more in return, but because you world is out of balance.  Believe us, the more you will receive.  It is the Law of Balance.  You want more love in your life?  More companionship, more of anything?  Then give.  It cannot help but come back to you.

Nothing that you want is outside of yourself.  You have created all that you “have” with your consciousness, which is never separate from yourself.  What do you “want?”  See yourself as having this now.  Begin giving of that from the mind and most especially from the heart.  Then you may prepare for the taking.

Give and take … it is a matter of balance.

Expectations and Ideals

The one true Mother is the One who birthed the spirit.  Any other you identified as "mother" who failed to live up to an ideal was chosen as a teacher.  The one true Father is the one who birthed you as spirit.  Any other you labeled as "father" is one you chose to serve as a teacher, and vice-versa.  If you are disappointed in the ones you identified as mother or father, it is because you set an ideal based upon a belief system you learned.  Were you adopted several times you would shift allegiances and perhaps hold onto the belief that the biological mother and father held the solution to your struggles.  This is a falsehood.

Your human parents are fellow sojourners, here to learn.  Have compassion for them as well as yourself.  There is One True Source of Love and Comfort and it lies within you.  You are an aspect of that eternal Source of Love.  Give up the belief in a mother and father who are separate from you.  Send love and gratitude to the very human beings you formerly believed were your source for the lessons you shared together.  Now, allow yourself to feel the loving arms of the true Father/Mother as you receive from within what you have been searching for outside of yourself your whole human life.

There is nothing new under the sun.  Consciousness has been around for a while, playing, enjoying, observing, interacting.  The only new thing is the form in which it expresses itself.  The feelings and emotions you experience are nothing new as they come and go in response to the interaction of the forms.

Are you tired of having the same old experiences?  Create new ones, and when you do, you will discover they are not new at all—merely new combinations of emotions.  The awakening and realizations you are having about yourself and the nature of consciousness are nothing new.  They merely arise as you experience the interaction of Consciousness, which has always existed. 

Enjoy the play.

The Greatest Additive

Pepper and salt … condiments … additives you put upon your food to increase the enjoyment.  Without them, to you there is less flavor, less enjoyable taste.  What are the other condiments in your life?  The greatest of these is love. 

Is your life a bit bland?  A bit tasteless?  Are you spreading love about sparingly or spreading it about with abandon to spice up your life?  Used in great quantities, your sodium can be harmful and so alter the taste that it becomes undesirable.  Love is not like that.  It is an additive that is not separate from you at all.  You can add it and add it with no detraction.  Carry a vial of it in your pocket today and apply it liberally.  Savor the effect and see how the liberal application of love enhances all that you do.

A bit of lightness today after a succession of hard-earned lessons.

You do not like strife?  You do not like the feel of conflict?  Some do.  If you do not, it is due to your level of sensitivity to the vibrations around you.  All is energy.  Some flinch in the face of dissonant vibrations, which is all that strife is.  Some are energized by them.  Some run away.  Some lash back.  If none of these are desired reactions to dissonance, go beyond the vibrations.  We ask you to note the particular use of the word “beyond,” for some of you would not like the word “above,” fearing a feeling of superiority.

In the face of dissonant vibrations, recognize that your consciousness is firmly focused at the human level, where thoughts are felt as dense energy that vibrates in relation to each other.  In this awareness, shift your consciousness beyond the human level to the finer level of pure spirit.  There, beyond the fray is a place of non-duality.  There can be no relativity there beyond … no judgment … simply “being.”

In the face of dissonance, you can always shift beyond to the state of peace and pure love and simply “be.”

Still Growing

Tumbling tumbleweeds.  They go where the wind blows.  Do you?  So light are they, with no roots to hold them in place.  They change directions frequently.  Do you?  If you are going to allow yourself to be blown around, then at the very least ask that you may be guided by the most favorable breeze.  “Fair winds,” you call it.

A tumbleweed does not take a stand.  Should you?  In what spirit would you do so?  In the spirit of love or righteousness?  What is right to you may be wrong to another.  There is a fine line between being blown about and digging in.  Be firm, but flexible.  Stand tall, yet bend a bit, and always ask to be guided.  In this way you are not a tumbling weed, but a blossoming flower … still growing, ever learning, especially when you raise your face to the sun.

The "I" in the Center

How do you find peace in the midst of a storm?  You go to the eye—the center—which is always there.  When caught in the worst of the winds it may be a struggle to find your way to the center, but trust that it is there.  Relax the body.  Take the mind off the thoughts.  Breathe deeply and set your intention on reaching that place of calmness.  When you reach it, relax even more, then pray.  It is here, in the silence, that you will hear guidance—the lifesavers sent out to you.

You can call out at any time, but in the calm eye you connect clearly with the greater “I” of the Self and remember that the storm is always temporary.  This too shall pass, but the peace that passes all understanding is always there.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013


Things happen when the time is right.  You do not always know when this is from your current perspective.  You may be trying and trying to accomplish a goal.  Who set the goal?  From what level did it come?  Could it be that the goal or desire is not in your best interest or that of the Greater Good? 

Relax.  Surrender.  Allow yourself to be guided.  Allow the “hows” of achieving your goals to unfold step by step, and then see the perfection.  You do not need to control everything.  Allow yourself to be controlled by a greater, wiser, more loving Force.  If this thought gives you fear, then change the word “controlled” to “guided.”  There.  Can you do that?

Surrender and allow.  Try it for yourself and experience the peace.

From the Shadows

You can run, but you cannot hide from your deepest fears, your anger, your demons.  There is no real devil.  There are only the lower, slower vibrations which exist as possibility, as does all Source energy.  It is your own consciousness which raises and lowers the vibrations.  Some of the lower ones have been held for safe-keeping for a very long time in a place you would know as your sub-conscious.  They rise to the level of awareness often at the most opportune time, which to you would seem to be the most inopportune. 

“Hello,” they announce, “I am here.  Now what are you going to do with me?”  Yes, what indeed?  Know that you can always ask for help.  That is why you are given life-long unseen helpers, but they will also stay in the shadows until invited in.

As for those devilish appearances, will you push them back into the shadows or deal with them now that they have made their presence known?  Take control of what comes out of the shadows and it can control you no more.

By the Grace of God

Survival … getting through a situation alive.  It is a silly word, for there is no death.  What you mean when you laugh and say, “I survived it,” is that you are still here … a bit wounded, perhaps, but also a bit changed.

Yes, you will survive.  You will survive the trials of life, and they do come aplenty.  You may come out a bit wounded, but look at the cut on your finger.  How does it heal?  Do you do anything or does it heal itself?  You may help the process with a bit of salve and a bandage, but the skin grows over the cut.  The two sides bind together as if by magic. 

It is by the grace of God that wounds are healed, as are you from your troubles.  It is not miraculous.  It is because you are loved.  And if wounds do not heal and the body dies?  What a surprise:  the soul lives on!  And it continues growing and healing … by the grace of God, for all there is is Love.

Hold onto your thoughts if they bring you peace.  Discard them if they do not.  It is that simple.  You cannot instantly change the physical situation around you, but you can change your feelings, your moods, your mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being in an instant.  You do this.  No other does it for you.

"But that other did or said this or that!” you exclaim, and we ask you, what of it?  What if they said or did such a thing and you were unaware of it?  It is only when you bring a thing into your consciousness and process it that the effect is felt.  Consciousness is the cause.  You choose with your own consciousness how to react from moment to moment. 

Do you wish for more peace in your life?  More love?  Your consciousness is the cause of this.  No other’s.  Choose peace.  Choose love.  It is the only cure for what ails you.

Saturday, January 12, 2013

In Earnest

When you do something in earnest, you throw all of your efforts and emotions into it.  You fully believe in the cause and in yourself.  If something is not working out as you had planned, are you doing it in earnest?  First look at your motivations.  Why are you doing it?  In what spirit are you working?  Is it in the spirit of love or ego?  When the former, Spirit is fully present.  If the latter, you may encounter greater obstacles.  Move forward in earnest in the spirit of love, and you will find yourself in-spired, helped along, and going with the flow.

Safe travels on this blessed journey.  There will always be bumps along the way, but you never travel alone.

Propped Up

Adversity … those times when you struggle to maintain equanimity, balance.  You are thrown off balance by a challenge.  The natural inclination is to return to standing tall instead of falling.  It is the law of balance.  You make every effort to right yourself, but sometimes you need a little propping up.  Do not be afraid to ask for help, be it in the form of friends and family in the physical world or helpers in the non-physical. 

You may have trouble standing on two feet, but you do not stand alone.  You are not a solitary tree in the forest, but the forest itself.  Realizing this will make it easier to stand.  The winds may buffet you about, but allow the others around you to be your buffer.  Ask for help and you will receive it.

Never-Ending Supply

From whence cometh envy?  From the false belief that you do not have enough.  The desire for material things comes from a need to fill a void.  The void is merely the lack of awareness that you are essentially love.  When you awaken fully to the presence of Love as you, you will have no need for anything else or anyone else.  Of course you will want to share this love you have discovered with others, and for that reason you will want to enjoy the company of others, but no longer will you feel envy of another who appears to have more than you do—only happiness for those who have also discovered Who they are.

If another’s alleged greatness comes not from a place of love, then you will only feel compassion and the desire that they, too, will find the peace and love that only comes from within.  Envy signifies a misunderstanding, for there truly is no lack, but a never-ending supply … of love.

Without Conditions

The ever-present Presence.  Do you know it?  Yes, you do.  You know it as Love.  It is there, calling your attention, or you would not seek love in all that you do.  But do not seek outside of yourself, for although Love is in all things, it is most reliably in you.  You bring forth the Presence, for that is your true nature. 

Do you not feel loved enough?  Then express more of who you are.  Yes, you are loved beyond words at a level you rarely tap into.  You can feel this love when you open your heart and set your spirit free. 

Do not hold out waiting for others to give their love to you.  Awaken.  Awaken your very soul and discover there the love you have been seeking.  The more you let it out, the more comes back to you.  Do you see how very simple it is?  Put no conditions on the soul.  It knows only Love.

Tuesday, January 8, 2013


“Defer” … “in deference to” … what does this mean?  That you recognize something or someone other than yourself.  You, on the spiritual path, are taught over and over that separation is illusion—that you are all connected—and this is true.  But it is also true that the majority of your human life is spent focused on your individuality, for that is how you learn the hard way. 

The so-called conscious mind appears separate.  It is only when you rise to the sub-conscious and super-conscious that you are aware of your connectedness.  This is where you access the guidance and insight you so often seek from others.  We ask you to defer to that greater aspect of yourself  (which, in truth, is not separate from yourself), and there you will find the answers you seek.

In deference to the ego, we daresay it does exist, but defer to the greater sight and insight of those aspects beyond the ego, and there, in this expanded state, will you truly awaken.

Monday, January 7, 2013


The act of surrender seems to you a weakness, when in fact it shows great strength.  In saying, “I surrender,” you are saying, “I trust that there is something that is greater than I can produce at this moment, and I welcome that assistance.”  We are speaking now in a spiritual sense—surrendering to a true Power, not to the false power of two or more egos battling over non-truths. 

To surrender to a higher spiritual power shows that you know you are connected and part of something greater and that help is yours for the asking.  All that you are surrendering is the ego, which has no true power in the first place.  And so, surrender is part of awakening.

Open your eyes to the fact that you are not alone.  In so doing, ego has no choice but to take a step to the side.

Form and Formless

With certainty look upon the face of another and know that you are seeing the face of God.  With certainty, look into a mirror and see the same.  Ah, but there enters the doubt.  “How can this be God,” you say, and this is where you lack in understanding.  Allow us to help.
You are seeing one aspect of a multi-faceted jewel.  You are seeing the form of that which is both form and formless.  You are both form and formless.  Your friend is both form and formless, and all of it—the form and formless—is God.  Would you shut out any of it for the false belief that only the formless is God?  It is all God, and it is all you, all your friend, All That Is.
Celebrate your Divinity today.  It is all Love.  Anything that is not love is merely the lack of understanding of all that we have shared with you today.  Be the Presence of Love today and fulfill your purpose in Life.

Saturday, January 5, 2013


Is there not always an alternate way of looking at a situation?  It is quite easy to bemoan your current circumstance.  “Woe is me.  Look how awful this is.”  And then, are your eyes not pointed toward one in a situation you would judge as far worse?  And suddenly you are grateful for what you have. 

Yet, at the same time, there may be another who looks upon you and is grateful they do not have to face your challenges.  In experiencing what you are experiencing, you are helping another.  How you choose to see your situation is always up to you and is always relative. 

Is there not always another way of looking at a situation?  Infinite ways, my friend.  We highly recommend choosing the one that brings the greatest peace.

Friday, January 4, 2013


Do not be afraid to move on.  Yes, you may have made mistakes in what you know as the past, but the past does not exist, save in your consciousness.  Let it go.  It holds no power unless you hold onto it.  Then it becomes a pattern, for you continue to play it over and over in the mind, bringing it into your present now as if it is real.  What is real?  You create reality in your mind.

Is what you call the past a reality you wish to repeat or not?  If so, continue acting and thinking as you do.  If not, see the past as obsolete and create this moment anew.  Flood your consciousness with fresh, bright light and pull it through you, cleansing the body of unwanted energy.  From this bright, clear space, step out boldly and create new patterns.

New Sight

As one ages, the physical body changes.  There can be growth in this.  All experience exists to produce growth.  We wish you to take the changing eyes as an example.  As a child, the eyes are sharp and see all physical objects with great clarity.  As an experienced adult, one no longer sees physical objects with great clarity.  You may stare at a plate of food and perceive it in one way until you place before the eyes a set of spectacles.  Lo!  Behold!  The plate before you now appears to hold objects which before were completely imperceptible.  Did the plate change or did you?  Or did nothing change save your perception?

Perception truly is reality, no matter in which dimension you find yourself.  We wish you simply to realize that reality is subjective.  There are billions of realities … infinite realities … all yours for the making, yours for the taking, and all existing to produce growth.  The aging process does not bring about death, but growth!  Through the experience of the changing eyesight you have achieved spiritual understanding and now see with greater clarity of a different sort.  Is that not growth?  You are still here.  You will always be “here,” for you exist eternally.  Only your “here” changes as your perception changes. 

See the world anew today. 
See reality anew. 
Now go on and play,
As the ever-changing you.

Happy New Year from Suzanne.  Check out the new video on www.PutLoveFirst.org - What does it mean to put love first?  May we all be beacons of light ...

Amid the Sorrow

Sorrow seems to last forever, but it does not.  It is a process.  What is a process, but a series of steps one experiences to reach a goal.  In the case of sorrow, what could possibly be the goal?  Growth, understanding, surrender, greater love … all of these are outcomes of having loved and supposedly lost it, or having experienced some event which lacked love.

You have a positive experience and wish to remain in that state.  When the state changes, sorrow is the result.  To get back to the original state, you go through the process, but lo, the end result is an expanded state in which you are stronger.  You have learned things about yourself.  You have made new connections.  You have survived.  You are still here.  And in this expanded state come new opportunities for love.  They may differ from your past experiences, and there is a reason for this:  the soul has grown.  There was a reason for your sorrow.

Find the purpose in your sorrow.  The process need not last forever.  Only the soul does that.  Only love is real and lasting.  Carry this thought with you as you process the process of growth.

What are you here for?  Never forget this.  It is quite easy to go about each day in a robotic fashion.  You have your routines.  You get out of bed and take care of the body, washing, clothing, and feeding it.  And then you entertain or exercise it perhaps, and do some work to make sure you can continue to entertain and feed and clothe it some more.  What is it all for?  It is for the experience, my friend.  Never forget this. 

And how will you spend each moment of this experience in your mind:  absently or with awareness?  Will you be focused always on the next action or will you fill each present action with the true purpose of life?
You are here to experience life in human form and to remember that this is not who you are eternally.  You are spirit having a human experience.  You are here to grow as a spirit—the part that never ceases growing.  That part of you is all Love.  If you can infuse love-awareness into each present moment whilst caring for the body, whilst working, exercising, and resting, we daresay you will vault from being in a robotic state to one of full interaction between the true Self and the present physical reality.  Expanded awareness is a beautiful state. 

Arise!  Arise each day with a sense of purpose.  Be the presence of Love and bring that Presence to all you do.  Peace be upon you as you begin a new chapter of your Experience.
