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."

You set a deadline for some event to occur.  This is an arbitrary thing.  It carries a bit of doom and gloom, does it not?  If the event does not occur by a certain time or date, then something less than positive will occur.  And so you experience stress and angst.  Look at the root word contained within “deadline.”  Death in any form is an illusion.  It is merely a time of transition.  The world will not come to an end when you meet your physical death.  You will step across the line between the physical as you now know it and the non-physical.  Things will change, and you will continue to grow.  It serves no purpose to fret over deadlines or death.  Life goes on, no matter what, so we advise you to be present and enjoy every moment.

Pain is a sign that something is out of alignment with your true nature.  When the physical body feels pain, you take action to relieve it.  It cannot be ignored.  When the emotions that rise to the surface are painful, what do you do?  So many of you panic and push them back down.  “Go away!  I do not want to deal with you!”  This only guarantees that the emotional pain will either continue to rise to the surface or turn into a physical pain.  One way or the other, it will clamor until you can no longer ignore it.

What if you were to acknowledge emotional pain the moment it appears?  Oh, such healing and growth you would experience!  “Oh!” you would say, “There is an emotion I don’t much care for.  Now, where did you come from, my friend, and why?  May I help you on your way?”  By acknowledging this teacher, it does, indeed, turn into your friend, and that is all he wants:  a bit of attention. 

Just like a cut on the finger, this wound in the spirit is merely asking to be healed.  And how do you heal the emotional wounds?  By giving them air and light.  Once brought to the surface and acknowledged, simply release them.  Do you dig around in a cut?  How silly!  Of course not.  Release the wound and replace it with fresh, healthy thoughts that serve you better now that Healer you have healed thyself.

Where to Begin

Be the change.  Your leader Gandhi said this.  You can sit and watch your fellow humans be cruel and heartless to each other or you can practice coming from the heart in all that you do.  This type of action begins with the thought.  How aware are you of your thoughts?  Do you see the goodness first or the bad?  Both do exist in your world of duality, but you get to choose where you place your focus.  To be the change you must change your focus.   Feel helpful instead of helpless, positive instead of putting down.  It truly is all up to you, for the smallest change begins with one heart.

Never underestimate the power of a smile.  It speaks far louder than words.    Do not hold back on this gift that costs you nothing and takes so little effort.  Think of those whose face is pulled downward by years of frowning.  The lines disappear when you express love through the lips.  Yes, that is what a smile is—a visible expression of love that you can give at any time, but it takes will to do so when there is no apparent reason.  Can you find a reason?  Merely dip into your heart, where you connect with the hearts of those around you, and there you will find a few billion or so reasons.

Theater in the Round

There are as many perspectives as there are people.  Imagine yourself sitting in a round theater watching a stage.  From your perspective, you see things one way.  A person sitting ninety degrees to your right would have quite a different view, and one opposite you would, of course, see things completely opposite of you.  Now, imagine how funny it seems to hear the two on opposite sides arguing that their view is the correct one and the other is wrong.  Yet, do you not do this all the time?  Why do you insist on right and wrong?  This is ego-centric behavior.  Can you, instead, learn to understand that instead of right and wrong there are billions of vantage points and simply allow others to enjoy the show from their perspective just as you do from yours?  Leaves on the same tree … that is what all of you are, yet you fight from your individual branches.

By the Sea

Why do humans love the beach?  The view of the sea reminds you of your true nature:  vast, open, uncluttered, and full of possibilities.  At times the sea is still; at others it reveals its full power.  It speaks in whispers and roars.  It does not disappear.  It is always there, no matter how many waves come and go.  This is the womb from which you arose and to which you shall return.  It calls you silently as you walk its shores.  Man cannot harness the ocean.  It is a living, pulsating thing greater than the human, and so you look upon it with wonder and a bit of respect.  You are looking at the Source, my friend.  The Creator is all around you, but at the shoreside, the Source reveals itself in ways both subtle and profound.  The beach is a place of contemplation for the soul, whether or not the human mind understands this.

Seeking Mastery

Will you let another dictate how you feel, how you think, and how you react?  This is the human way.  What if you were to allow only your Higher Self to dictate your thoughts and emotions?  Oh, such peace you would find!  This takes quite a bit of mastery, but it is an attainable goal.  Begin with awareness of how many of your thoughts and actions are reactive to others around you.  Yes, there is only one Mind, but billions of facets of this one jewel.  Choose the one that will help you to sparkle.

Let’s Make a Deal.  Do you remember that show on your television?  A great prize sat behind Door #1 or #2 or #3.  If you guessed wrong, perhaps you won a cow.  If you guessed correctly, perhaps a car.  And so, you now think that all of life is like that.  You must wheel and deal and guess correctly to win the prize or be left with something of little value.  Life is not a game.  Have we ever used this analogy?  A play, a drama, perhaps; a school, most definitely, but not a game.  All are winners, for all learn from the lessons.  It is your human mind that makes a car more valuable than a cow.  When you can gaze upon all three doors with great excitement rather than with dread or worry, knowing that the value in what lies behind each one is all in your mind, then you have truly discovered the prize.

One Light

Your worth is not measured in how many lives you touch, how many hearts you heal.  You are all equally worthy.  It is the human side that keeps track of numbers and gives worth to these.  As spirit, all are equal, for Spirit does not count beyond One.  One means all are the same.  There is no separation.  By helping one other you help yourself.  Focus on simply being the Light.  The light will travel where it will as needed.  When you focus on how far the light reaches you lose sight of its Source.

At times you hear news that you do not want to hear and you deny it.  “That cannot be true.  That person who I love did not do those things,” or some other example of news that bursts your bubble.  How do you react?  You put up your defenses and refuse to change your belief systems, for, as you so often say, “The truth hurts.”  What if you were to see the actions as those taken by a human being acting as humans often do.  When they forget or do not realize that they are spirit-beings, they make decisions which are not always for the greater good.  See them then with compassion.  Forgive the human side of them and forgive the side of you which expected perfection.  In that way, all can grow instead of being blocked by beliefs that your human companions need to be perfect.  Few humans are perfect, but within them lies the soul.  Send love and compassion to any situation, and the truth will not hurt.  You will find understanding, and then you can find peace.

Learning to Trust

What is nervousness, but a lack of trust.  Were you to remember that you are fully supported by the Universe at all times, you would not experience the jitters and fear.  Yes, fear … that is at the root of all nervousness.  Fear that your expectations will not be met.  Fear that others will look down upon you.  Fear that you will lose your life.  We could give you multiple examples of how to look at each case of nervousness in a wholly new light, but it all comes down to seeing your Self in a Holy new light.

Letting Go

Some hold onto grief for years and years
Others move beyond it faster.
Peace and tranquility await you all
When your emotions you do master.

There's nothing wrong in feeling pain
For pain is part of human living.
But remember clearly this one point:
Pain is for the lessons it is giving.

Do you grow from how you hurt
Or do you curl up in a ball?
There's little growth from suffering
If you stay down after you fall.

In life there's nothing permanent
Except of course the soul.
It shatters not, but stays intact
As one eternal whole.

Know that those for whom you grieve
Have never left your side.
Their soul lives on forever more.
It's in your heart where they reside.

For the Greatest Good

Expectations will always color your experience.  Why is this?  For your thoughts truly do create your reality.  When you have expectations, they set up a vibration much like an intention.  If your expectation of how an event will turn out does not match the circumstances, you are disappointed.  If you can learn to set the intention at all times that the greatest good be served and have no expectations at all other than the same as your intention, then you will never be disappointed.  In fact, you will be quite delighted at the outcome.

Where Peace Abides

Yes, you are stunned when one you know passes suddenly, and several others become ill, seemingly all at the same time.  Is it bad luck, or is it simply the natural cycles of Life?  You do not pay attention when all is going smoothly, according to what you consider “good.”  It is only when that which you consider “bad” occurs in succession that you panic.  In the world of duality, there is a natural back and forth between the poles.  This is the Law of Balance.  If you do not wish to be bothered by these swings which will continue to occur in your three-dimensional reality, take your consciousness and shift to a higher dimension from which you can look down upon the swings of the pendulum.  This is called “getting centered.”  This is the fulcrum point at the center of you where peace abides.

With Abandon

What is it you say that your alcohol does for you?  “It removes your inhibitions.”  And what happens to you then?  You act with abandon.  What is it you abandon?  What is it that inhibits you?  The “norms” of human behavior.  The very word implies that which is accepted as “normal.”  And so, you behave in a way that is outside the parameters of what is acceptable, abandoning human constructs of how one should or should not act.  And in those initial moments when the alcohol takes effect and you act with abandon, what happens?  You laugh more.  You smile more.  You relax and are free of inhibitions.

Who put those inhibitions there?  You can see where we are going.  We are not advising you to drink alcohol.  Not at all.  We are asking you to study your norms and ask why you have accepted and imposed them.  If your norms cause you to cut yourself off from your fellow man and to lessen your full enjoyment of existence, then we ask you to open your heart.  Using only the natural elixir of Love, get drunk on living.

Do not ignore the signs all around you.  When your attention is drawn to a person or thing, pay attention.  There is a reason your gaze catches for a moment longer than normal.  Pause and notice.  What is it saying to you?  Signs are all around you in the answers to your questions, the guidance you need, the helping hand you have been waiting for.  Do not wait for a booming voice from on high to knock you off your feet.  Listen, instead, to the still, small voice that presents itself to you in a myriad of magical ways to help you back on your feet.

Healing occurs instantaneously when you remove the chains from your heart.  What puts the chains there in the first place?  Your humanity and the beliefs that go along with this.  Were you not human, you would have no illnesses, no imperfections, for these are not of the spirit.  You are human now for a reason:  to learn to love more fully.  Your task is to remove the chains that bind you link by link or all at once.  Until then, you work at freeing yourself, and with each link removed, you ascend ever higher.

Why are most of your fellow human beings so unaware of a greater reality?  They have been taught that this physical world is the only one.  It is all a matter of believing what you have been told, to the exclusion of a personal experience.  You had that experience—that connection—with the unseen world when you came into this world, and then you learned a language and blocked your awareness of the ongoing connection.  In that language were lessons about how to think and behave as a human being.  You learned your lessons well.  Now unlearn them.  Go back to the innocence of a child.  Assume an attitude of beginner’s mind.  Empty your cup so that it can be filled with guidance from within once again.  Undo the teachings that have held you back and get ready to take flight.  It is time to finally let your spirit soar once you open the door and get a glimpse again of who you really are.

Release your fist and place your open palm ever so gently on your own cheek.  That is called a caress.  When is the last time anyone did that to you?  Did it not immediately soften your heart?  And when is the last time you did it to yourself?  Go ahead.  Try it.  No one is looking, but your soul is longing for it.  Are you ready to melt?  You will not disappear.  In fact, now you will flow.  A gentle caress.  That is the start to loving and nurturing your Self completely.

Strong at Heart

“Life is not for the faint at heart.”  That is why you are given a heart.  When you feel you cannot go on, place your focus there, in the center of your chest.  The center of you is also the center of the Universe ... the center of All That Is.  The world truly does revolve around you, for there is only one Center.  At the center of it all is Love in the form of Consciousness that creates all experiences.  You are experiencing life through one aspect of the One Divine Mind.  Yes, others are, too, of course, and they are each the center of their own universes, but all of it goes back to the center of it all. 
Do not become frustrated.  It is a bit much to wrap your head around, which is why we advise you to move to the heart when things get to be too much.  There you are home.  There you rejoin the One ... the one who give you strength, courage, and love when you are feeling faint at heart.  You are never alone.  You are loved beyond words.

Note from Suzanne:  Today’s message came after I caught the old “monkey mind” chattering away during meditation.   Sanaya's words apply, as always, to so many situations we face throughout the day.

Distractions abound.  What is a distraction, but anything that takes your mind away from its intended focus.  Even those things you label “good” can be distractions.  How important is your goal?  Increase your focus and practice keeping distractions at bay.  It is you who allows them to have power.  They will always be there.  Use discernment to determine what is a necessity and what is merely a distraction.  Ego will send distractions buzzing your way like pesky flies throughout your day.  It is you who must shoo them away by harnessing the power of consciousness.

Stepping Out

When you go along with the crowd all of the time, you can get lost in there.  The view from the middle of the flock is only of the other sheep.  Venture to the edges and the view changes.  Slip outside the fence for a bit of fun.  You may hear a bit of shouting, but what you bring back with you when the shepherd leads you home will add greatly to the whole flock, most especially those who were too timid to see beyond the limits of the group.  It is only by having the courage to step outside the boundaries imposed by group thinking that you grow.

What Matters Most

And so, one person pays you attention and they are a person with power, or position, or wealth.  And so, you beam.  Why is this person of any greater importance to you than any other?  The ego would have you think that such attention makes you greater, more powerful as a result.  Do you see the fallacy in this?  All are children of God, all equal in the eyes of Spirit.  That one with great power may have fame and fortune, but no love.  That other with no fame, or fortune,  or power may be filled to overflowing with love.  Now, which brings you the greatest treasure?  Simply be aware of the ego trying to play his little tricks on you and to take your focus off of what matters most.

Self Love

When you see one who carries more weight than the body was designed to carry, know that they carry a burden much greater than the physical one.  It is a visible sign of a lack of alignment with the true nature.  View that being not with judgment, but with great compassion, for there are wounds they are not facing.  Surround them with love and light, knowing that this is what will help more than anything until they can shine that light onto their wounds and heal the wounds themself.  It is not a matter of right or wrong, of beauty or not, but of not fully knowing and loving the self. 

We love you so very much.

Everything to Gain

When you find yourself saying, “What the heck, I have nothing to lose,” then you have already won.  At that point, you are ready to surrender your fears and doubts, and then the limitless possibilities can begin to take shape.  Need we say more?  We could ask you to list those things you think you could lose, and then you might go back to that place of fear. But then again, you might just see then how those fears and doubts falsely keep you from achieving your magnificence.  That part of you is never lost, just buried for a while until you come to the point where you realize that the only thing you need do is lose the fear and find peace.

Learning Opportunities

Who is in charge here?  Is it you or is it a joint effort?  Who would be the one pulling your strings?  Does it matter what you call the Guiding Force that gives you life?  Not at all.  What matters is that you realize you never act alone.  Yes, you can exert free will.  What a learning opportunity that affords you!  Or you can do the opposite and surrender that pesky ego.  Either way, life goes on.  It can be no other way.  You can go it alone, which is how ego would like you to think you are, or you can take the Loving Hand that is offered you and allow yourself to be guided.

Checking In

What are your priorities?  When they are in order, everything will get done in perfect order.  “But I must do this or that!” you think.  When you hear yourself say these words, stop and assess your priorities.  Is love and connection at the top of the list?  Perhaps that is love and connection with one you have forsaken for your other priorities.  Perhaps that is love and connection with yourself, who you have forsaken for the sake of others.  The key is to stop and assess.  Your heart will tell you what to do.

In Balance

Balance and alignment.  You do this on a regular basis to your car, do you not?  If you fail to do this, the car wobbles and does not ride efficiently.  How do you balance the self?  Listen to your thoughts.  Are you in alignment with your highest nature?  How do you know?  You go to the center of the soul—the heart.  This is the seat of the soul—the driver’s seat.  When you let the head drive your actions, you wobble just like the car.  Seek balance and alignment in all things, beginning with your thoughts.
