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."

Simon Says

Simon Says.  Do you remember that game?  Any words that came after “Simon says” you were supposed to do, and you did them.  What a silly game, yet you had fun playing it.  For a while you subdued your free will and did whatever you were told.  Now you have grown up.  Who is Simon in your life now?  Is it one outside of you or is it a voice inside of you?  The thing most do not realize is that there is only one mind that presents itself as infinite voices, some external and some internal.  You could drive yourself crazy determining which to follow were it not for that tool of discernment you’ve been given that has no voice.  It is called a heart.  It speaks through feeling and what you know as intuition.  When “Simon” says anything, next time, before you act automatically, check in with your heart and realize you have a choice.

Glow On

Faith will waver.  It is the human way.  Why?  Because you are surrounded by those with lesser faith.  You were raised among those with lesser faith.  But you are imbued with Spirit.  Ego tries to tell you that you are less than you are, and at times you slip backwards.  There is no punishment for this, no judgment.  You feel the difference.  Is that not consequence enough?  But feel no remorse for this.  Spirit will always lead you gently home, guiding you lovingly back to remembrance, back to faith and full knowing, for the light inside you glows on and on.  At times it may flicker as the winds about you blow, but even an ember can burst again into a bright and glorious flame.  Never fear.  You are loved and you are never forsaken.  Only the human nature would have you think otherwise.  When you can acknowledge your humanness and then step once again fully back into your permanent state of spirit, then you have survived yet another hurdle.  Welcome to the experience you call “being human.”

Who Are You?

“I’m not myself today,” you say.  And who, we ask, is the real you?  “It’s not this crabby, listless person,” you reply, and you are partially correct.  That is indeed one of your many selves.  You have a limitless, infinite number of selves if you consider ego a self.  The ego takes on roles.  It has personality.  It can be flamboyant or withdrawn.  The soul is the eternal, ever-evolving part of you.  It carries ego’s personalities whilst in human form, and from these personalities and experiences it grows, but it knows these personalities are only temporary. 

The soul more closely aligns with the One Mind from which it arises.  The soul knows that its true nature is Love and the bliss which goes beyond human joy.  When you are not feeling “yourself,” this is the soul reminding you of your greater aspects.  It is difficult to express your higher Self at all times, but these nudges of what is possible, of who you are, do keep you from despairing and give you hope.

Closing and Opening

“When one door closes, another opens.”  Have you not heard this before?  Many of your sayings become sayings because so many have experienced the truth inherent in them.  You balk when a door closes.  At times it closes suddenly and so unexpectedly that you are startled.  It takes a moment to regain your equanimity, but when you do, you are able to remember this truism and wait with peace and the happy expectancy born of trust for the greater opportunities that lie ahead.  Learn from the closing of doors as you learn from all things to look upon them and those who closed them with naught but love … unconditional love.  That is what lies beyond the door to your heart.  It is when that door remains open that hope, faith, trust, love, and all things G(o)od flow.

Note from Suzanne:  We continue westward on our tour and have just crossed into Mountain Time in South Dakota.  If Sanaya's daily messages appears to be posting two hours later than usual starting tomorrow, it's all the illusion of time!  :-). Love to all ...

Just Right

All things in moderation.  You have heard this before.  “Oh, how boring,” you think, and we ask you to reconsider.  You enjoy the highs, whether they be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual, but what of the lows?  Remember the pendulum.  As high as it swings in one direction, it will swing back the other way.  This is the Law in your world of duality.

“But who wants to stay only in the middle?” you ask, and we tell you that you need not.  We are merely advising awareness of moderation.  In the middle is peace.  The farther you wander from the middle in either direction is a greater degree of agitation, good or bad.  As you remain centered in a state of peace, feel the love.  The love is always there along the entire spectrum.  That is what all beings ultimately seek but cannot feel as long as they swing too far to the extremes.  Simply remember that you control the swing.  Play with it until you find just the right balance.

In Alignment

Conformity … coming into alignment.  Did you know that your expression “Towing the line” in not about towing at all, but “toe-ing,” such as what happens when a group of recruits is told to stand at attention with their toes along a line painted on the ground.  They are toe-ing the line.  They are in conformity, in alignment.  And what of the group member who dares to step out of line?  He can cross the line or step back, but he most definitely stands out.  He is now a non-conformist. 

Perhaps some of your new spiritual beliefs cause you to step back or across a line drawn by a greater majority of your more traditional human beings.  Does this make you a non-conformist?  In a way, yes, but whether that is right or wrong is a human judgment.  Where is your heart?  What is your motive?  If you remain steadfastly focused on divine love, then you are now in alignment with your true nature.  Now you are toe-ing the line with Spirit.  Perhaps non-conformity is not such a bad thing after all.  It is all a matter of perspective.

A Chacun Son Gout

Vive la difference!  When a friend points out that you do something a certain way, do not take that as criticism.  Understand that it may or may not be their way, but you can choose to see their remark merely as an observation.  Your way is your way.  All are here to express the Life Force, and there are infinite modes of expression.  One may be formal, the other relaxed.  One may be inhibited, the other playful.  There is nothing right or wrong with modes of expression.  C’est la Vie, et la Vie et belle!  You are loved no matter what.  Be as you are.  Yesterday we spoke of change.  Whether or not you choose to change is up to you.  To find peace, love yourself as we do:  just the way you are.

Always Other Views

Why do you bristle when another tells you what to do?  That would mean letting go of what you think is the correct thought or action.  Perhaps it is correct or appropriate, but perhaps there are other ways of thinking or behaving.  Trying out those other ways would require change.  If you bristle, that is a sign.  Can you smile when another tells you what to do and indeed "lighten up?"  What would it hurt you to try something new or a new attitude?  Ah!  Then you might have to admit that your way was not accepted.  Do not use words "right" or "wrong," for these are changeable beliefs as well.  What you really wish for is that you may be allowed to do and think what you want.  You always may do so, but others may not agree.  Learning to go with the flow and not bristle when others disagree with your stance is part of your task.

Gone Sailing

Look at the waters that cover your earth.  They have been there for millions of years.  The waves come and go, do they not, yet the water is still there.  You are like the water.  The form of you comes and goes, yet you remain.

“Do my loved ones hang around after they pass?” you wish to know, and we reply, yes, like the ocean.  Where else would they go?  They exist as part of the great Sea of Consciousness, just as you do here and now—sometimes a wave and sometimes a particle.  Ah, yes!  It is science … the science of vibration, the science of consciousness.  They are as close as your thoughts, here, now, and forevermore, as are you to them.  They may travel the great Sea of Consciousness once their focus shifts away from the human world and their soul is free of the body, but they are back in your heart in an instant when either one of you thinks of the other. 

Once two hearts are entwined, always are they connected.  A ship may sail away to discover new worlds, but always does it return home, and home truly is where the heart is.

W(holy) Different

Have you experienced the joy that comes from a pure connection with Spirit?  It is quite different from the happiness of ego-based thoughts.  Have you experienced the peace that comes from a true connection with your Essence?  It is quite different from a human sense of being calm.  Have you experienced the Love that comes from remembering your oneness with your Source?  It is w(holy) different than the ephemeral love that comes and goes based on outer appearance or actions.  The joy, peace, and Love of which we speak have a depth and a richness that are profoundly different and recognizable.  Once felt, nothing else will satisfy. 

You know these attributes at a soul level, which is why at a subconscious level most feel a deep dissatisfaction until they are discovered once again.  They have not disappeared.  They have merely been covered by human frailties.  Follow the urging of Spirit and find your way Home, to true and lasting joy, peace, and Love.  They lie within you; this we promise you.  Merely asking within how to find them is the first step.

Wednesday, May 21, 2014


Prepare for changes.  Get ready, they are coming.  Does this thought strike fear in your heart or excitement?  Either way, you cannot avoid change, for change is one of the greatest facts of your life.  It is inevitable, yet so many of you dig in your heels and resist forward movement.  If you could sit in a cocoon forever you think you would be happy, but you are here to grow and evolve.  And what of the caterpillar who grows and stretches?  Well, we think you see where we are going.  Change is not always without a bit of discomfort, but always it is for the greater good.  Get ready for growth, for the changes they are coming.

New Beginnings

Oh, the beauty of a gray dawn. It holds such promise.  Each day begins anew, with or without the sparkling dew.  What you do with it is up to you.  Hold the promise in your hand and bless it.  This is where you start.  Knowing that with the sun or not, the beauty lies within your heart.  You need not see the sun to know the day will turn out well.  How it ends is just for you to tell.  The story is as yet unfolding.  And so, for now your fears we quell.  Sun or not you are beloved.  This we do assure you.  Go forth and know you’re not alone.  You exist not just as flesh and bone, but as the breath of God.  This is the sunlight all men seek.  It shines on all, the mighty and the meek, giving strength when you are weak.  Inhale, breathe in the beauty of this day, and thus the sun does rise for each in his own way.

Why do astronauts venture into outer space?  To discern things and worlds unknown.  To go where no man has walked before.  They do this at times at great peril.  Do you know that you can venture into deep space yourself at no risk and discern worlds upon worlds of great beauty, great peace, and love?  You do this by traveling into the depths of your own being, the inner space of the soul.  Do not think that you need have an out of body experience.  Your consciousness already exists out of body.  You merely need drift with your consciousness beyond the awareness of the body.  Paradoxically, you can do this by centering on the heart or by shifting your consciousness above the crown.  It is all consciousness.  There are a multitude of methods, but all lead to the same expanded state.  It is in this state that the adventure begins.  So suit up, and take a deep breath, followed by another, and another, and another, and another, and another …

Oh so Subtle

Underneath the mattress lies a pea.  The one who feels it gets a prize.  How sensitive are you?  The prize goes to the one who can discern even the most subtle of vibrations.  And what is that prize?  Awareness of the Kingdom of which you have always been a part.  When one becomes too wrapped up in ego ruling, the pea cannot be discerned.  It takes refinement, subtlety, silence, and trust.  Do you have what it takes to cull the treasures of the Kingdom within from the chaff?  Most certainly.  Begin by trusting that you do.  It is not really a pea that you seek, but peace, and it is yours for the taking.

You wish to bring more love into this world?  Why, it is already there!  This is what the mass of humanity do not yet realize.  That very love is masked beneath false beliefs.  If a jewel is buried in the mud, you will not recognize it until it is unearthed and washed free of the debris.  The jewel of humanity lies in the soul.  It is right there beneath your very noses, and toes, and fingers, and eyes.  Do not believe all the lies.  You are worthy.  You are loved.  You are magnificent! 

There!  Do you feel what just happened?  A bit of caked up mud just sloughed off as Truth caused the jewel within to stir.  Do not wait for someone or something outside of you to clear that which has been hiding your true nature.  Realize that you are love, and set yourself free.

Becoming Unstuck

There will be times when you find yourself in a tight spot.  You have been there before.  Yes, a feeling of doom may descend, but that is simply a warning sign, just as is pain.  These signs and pains do not represent permanency.  They merely alert you that adjustments to your normal routine may be necessary.  Now that you have recognized that action is needed, how do you take it and not lose all equanimity?  This is precisely when our favorite phrase becomes most useful.  You repeat “Isn’t that interesting” until you can think straight.  You repeat it until you remember “this too shall pass.”  

There is nothing permanent, not even death.  That is the beauty of these teachings.  They remind you to see from a higher perspective.  From up there, what appears to be stuck, or a tragedy, or a challenge, or a disaster, is one piece in the ever-changing picture-puzzle of your temporary life as a human.  The part of you that is pure spirit merely shines on and rests in peace, knowing all is well, most especially when the human learns and grows from the bumps in the road.
Note from Suzanne:  To read how we got a bit “stuck” in downtown Chicago in our coach yesterday, see my blog and Ty's blog today.  Now that we are in Central Time Zone, Sanaya may appear to post an hour later each morning.  If you follow by email (fill in the box on the right-side column of www.SanayaSays.com) the posts will continue to show up in your inbox mid-afternoon.  Love to all!

Being Who You Are

It matters not if the mass of humans think not as you do.  It matters not if belief systems differ.  There is one way in which all are the same:  in the emotional field.  All grieve the same.  All know laughter and love at some point in their lives.  And so, you can walk through a room full of those who think completely differently from you, whose life experiences contrast completely, and you can connect.  You do this not with the mind, but with the heart, where all are the same.  You engage the eyes and you smile from the heart, and lo, there is a connection.  You have engaged the other(s) at multiple levels, beginning with the physical, but transcending the human side and going straight to the soul.  Do not let thoughts get in the way or stop you from being who you really are.  Open your heart and send love.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014


What may seem to be mere happenstance may be one of the most important moments of your life.  Pay attention.  A casual word spoken in an off-hand manner may change the direction of your path.  Pay attention.  A chance encounter may provide just the answers you have been looking for.  Are your ears and eyes open?  “But I do not know where to look!” you cry, and we say, simply be aware that the gifts are all around you.  The world is far more magical and far more cooperative than most of you are aware.  And that is the issue.  Until you are aware, you may miss the signs.  Are you paying attention now?

In Search of Recognition

“Who gets the credit?”  Do you see what a human concept this is?  Only a mind that sees itself as lacking would concern itself with recognition and attention.  That is the ego speaking, poor thing.  Ego sees not that it is a player in the role of human-being.  Its role is quite important, actually.  It is in awakening to the fact that you are far more than ego and then overcoming egoic behaviors that you truly fulfill your purpose in this earthly existence.  You come to remember that there has only ever been one Consciousness whose essence is goodness and love.  With that understanding, recognition matters not.  It is like looking in the mirror to confirm that you exist.  You know this already.  Why would you need credit for doing something good?  You are goodness and love already.  Yes, praise is appreciated.  It is a way of sharing love, but it need not come at the expense of others.  You can simply smile and bathe in the goodness and love you have brought to the surface by being your highest Self.  That is all the recognition the soul desires.

Who Are They? Who Are You?

“But we are not the kind of people who normally seek out mediums.”  And who would those kind of people be, we ask?  Those who have suffered great loss, perhaps, and wish desperately to know that their loved ones are not gone forever.  So, would those kinds of people believe anything?  Are they gullible?  Are they foolish?  Or are they resting on hope and faith that what the soul has always known and whispered in their ear is true:  that all of you will go on … go back, in fact, to the state of consciousness from which you entered this physical life. 

Yes, the soul knows.  Yes, for some it takes desperation and hope beyond hope to push past the human fears, and doubts, and false belief systems to discern truth, and Presence, and Love beyond words.  That Love is there for all to find, but at times it requires the assistance of one who has found a way of seeing and hearing across the oh-so-thin veil that separates you. 
Who is this kind of person who listens to a medium?  A soul who is waking up.  Good morning, soul.  We hope you have rested well, for your human world is about to change.

With New Eyes

What if you were blind?  How would you feel about another person when you met them?  What is the first thing you would perceive?  You would form your impressions most likely on the voice or the strength of a handshake.  At a far more subtle level you would feel their vibration—the frequency of the human energy field that would tell you if they are a vibrational match with you.  You would not sum them up in one moment of matching visual cues with your belief system.  You would not automatically categorize them and believe you know all about them based upon how they look.  Yes, the voice and handshake would lend themselves to the same type of stereotyping that is so very human, but it would take just a bit longer than the instant categorization your visual inputs lead to.

We ask you to see today as the blind man.  Be as blind as you can and see with the eyes of the soul.  Feel those you meet with your heart.  You will feel an instant connection, for at the level of the soul, all hearts are one.  See with new eyes today and knock down the walls which keep you all so very separate.

On This First Day

Beginnings.  They represent excitement and perhaps a bit of doubt, for you know not exactly how things will turn out.  Do you remember the first day of school when all of your notebooks were new, not a word written on them?  This moment is like that on this new day in the school of your life.  Will you dread all of the work that lies ahead of you or dream of the many ways you will fill the blank pages of your notebook? 

Did you enjoy the first day of school or dread it?  A fitting metaphor for life.  You are grown up now.  Your abilities and knowledge have grown.  A blank page lies before you.  Perhaps it is time to get excited.

Trust, then Fly

Whispers on the wind.  Voices so subtle you are not sure you heard them.  And then you follow the promptings and magic occurs.  This is how you learn to trust the voice.  You always have a choice.  When you choose to ignore the voice, life goes on, but perhaps you stumble.  You need not tumble.  The voice is there to show you that you do not walk alone.  So many do not hear it or they choose to believe it is all in the mind.  But of course it is!  How else can we get advice and assistance to you?  When you finally realize there is only one Mind, then the magic truly begins, for you work with us.  You actively seek our help.  The choice is yours:  plod along or fly.

Filled with Love

What if there were no love in this world?  Can you picture your planet Mars?  It is still a living planet, beautiful in its own way, but blighted by a lack of vibrant presence.  You have your cities like that.  You call this “urban blight.”  They are places where those who inhabit them have lost sight of what is important, of who they are:  beings of light whose essence is love.  This is why you pass around your Internet photos of places that thrive and exceed the average in beauty.  Your cities with urban blight are not places that love forgot.  Love is always there.  They are places where the inhabitants forgot their true nature.  This kind of ignorance is a cancer that spreads or is stopped.  The antidote is the very thing that is missing.  Fill your world with Love, and you fill your world with beauty.

Still Whole

What causes an earthquake but a shifting of energy.  Your earth is a living being with a heart all its own.  Change results, but not always without disruption.  Does this not sound familiar?  Change is not always peaceful at the human level of awareness.  Step into the rocket ship of your consciousness and rise above the surface of your earth.  What seems like a cataclysm now is invisible.  The earth is still whole.  The contours may have changed a big, but life goes on.  And so it is in your life.  As above, so below.  When change occurs so abruptly that all is thrown into turmoil, picture your earth.  Change is a natural process.  Turmoil is a human reaction.  Rise above and see the wholeness, the natural rhythms and cycles resulting in change, and therein find peace.

The Presence

Crying can become a habit.  The body becomes addicted to the chemicals created when you are grieving.  Yes, crying is cathartic and cleansing, but after you have released, it is time to renew.  Maintain awareness of your feelings.  Do you wish to return to happier days?  It is this focus on the past which digs up old feelings.  Create now in the present moment feelings of love.  That feeling is always within you.  It is here now.  There is no need or desire to cry when you are fully present.  It is only when you slip into the past or vault into the future, neither of which truly exist, that you create feelings that no longer serve you and keep you from experiencing the love that you are now.  Dry your tears and focus on the powerful presence of Love that you are every now-moment of your eternal life.

The Gift of You

“Good morning!” said with a cheery smile to a stranger can save a life.  So many of you feel cut off from each other, and you are, but only in a physical sense.  How simple it is to reconnect.  What a gift you are to each other, yet you withhold the gift of you, of love and connection, by casting your eyes to the side and walking past a fellow soul in silence.  Rejoice in the day you have created.  Seize each opportunity to shout your joy and to awaken that joy in others.  “Good morning!  It’s a beautiful day!” can bring out the sunshine on the darkest of days.

Being Your Self

Wherever you go, there I AM.  Such comforting words.  Who or what is this I AM?  The Source of your very being.  Do you notice that last word?  Being.  It is who and what you are:  existence in its purest form whether or not you have a physical body.  You cannot help but BE.  And so, I AM you know intimately, for it is you and all that is.  When is it that you shine the brightest?  When do you appreciate “being” the most?  When you connect intimately with other I AMs.  It is then that you realize I AM Love.  It is then that you celebrate existence.  It is then that you come into the fullness of your being.  So go now and celebrate.  Be. Love.  Now.

Had you any idea how much your subconscious thoughts control your emotions and actions, you might change your ways.  Ah, but there is the challenge.  To change your ways, you must take conscious control of your thoughts.  Reprogramming less than helpful thoughts takes deliberate intent and focused attention.  How easily you will slip back into the old patterns without this potent combination.  Stick with it, this reprogramming, and you will see and feel the difference in your life. 

Do you wish for greater peace?  Greater love?  A greater sense of connection with All That Is?  Write out your new empowering statements.  Make it your intention to make this list the new Operating System of your subconscious mind and then repeat these statements to yourself with conscious will until they reflect who you are in your thoughts and actions from the inside out. 
Are you ready to get to work?  The beautiful thing is, if you read our words now and lack the will or desire to change, you are still Love(d).   Such a beautiful truth.  If you seek happiness, perhaps you could start there with your programming.

Friday, May 2, 2014


You see a friend or family member you have not seen in a long time and you both immediately revert to your old programming.  Are you the same person you were when you last shared the same space?  No, you have grown and so has the other, but do you see how the subconscious mind controls you?  It immediately puts on the recording that matches the image before you.  You are not an automaton.  You are a conscious being.  More important, you are a spirit—loving energy that has evolved beyond your old programming.  Keep this in mind as you forge new and improved relationships based on the new and improved you.

At Home Anywhere

Why do babies cry?  The moment they enter the world they express their discomfort in audible ways.  Their distress is written on their face.  You joke that they are saying, “What have I done?” and this is not far from the truth.  What is it that calms them down?  When they are held against another body with love.  “Ah yes, they realize, “I have not completely left my home.  There is love here.”

Love is the energy that transcends the dimensions.  The soul knows love as its true essence.  You humans will spend your lives trying to find the feeling of your true home, when in fact you have never left it.  The soul is there now.  You as a human can connect mind, body, and spirit and experience the bliss and peace of your true home when you return to the pure state of the baby.  Clear out the human beliefs and know that you are pure love.  There is no other Truth.
