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."

“Isn’t that why we came here … to change the world?”  Yes, for in changing yourself you are changing the world.  Change begins within.  How can you expect the world to be loving and peaceful if you are not the same inside?  This concept applies on a grand scale and at the interpersonal level.  Is there chaos in your household or workplace?  Find the chaos within yourself.  Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.  Be love, be peace, and you will see more and more of the same in your life.

Your Field

Every thought you have ever had is imprinted in your soul.  Every action you have taken, every deed you have performed … all of these make up your personal field.  This is what you take with you when you walk into a room and are felt by others, and this is what you take with you when you pass to the other side. 

When people meet you, what does your soul say to them?  If you were to pass to the other side today, what would your soul reveal?  Your field is an ever-changing thing.  If you are not happy with what your field radiates at this moment, you have the power to change it.  You do this through your choices from moment to moment.

You have a saying that you can’t take it with you, but this is not totally so.  All that you are in the heart you most certainly do take with you.  It is an amazing responsibility, for what you take with you you add to the Whole of which you are a part.  What are you taking with you?

Everyone has a story.  Some are serving others; some are taking away.  Some are treading water and simply being.  And so, there is room for judgment if you so choose.  Instead of judging, observe the other stories.  Digest them.  See what they have to teach you.  Do they cause you to want to alter your story?  Do they propel you to action or give you satisfaction?  You are in a symbiotic relationship with all you meet.  There can be no separation.  Listen to the stories and learn from them.  Dig under the surface if you feel so inclined.  You will always learn something, and that is the point of your story.

Always With Us

NOTE from Suzanne:  Sanaya often makes me aware that their messages truly come from them (and not from my imagination) in the most wonderful ways.  Two days ago their message to us began with the words, "Lions, and tigers, and bears. Oh my."  I thought that was a strange way to start a message, but I have learned not to question what they say.  I chose a photo that included a lion, tiger, and bear standing together.  Now, here's the fun:  I received and posted that message on October 26th.  I am in California at a film festival.  My husband Ty is in Florida and chose to go hiking for 3 days.  I did not hear from him all day on the 26th because he had no cell phone signal.  When we finally reconnected by phone on the 27th, he shared with me that he had had a close encounter with a bear the day before - on the 26th, the very day I posted the bear photo.  The photo here is his, taken moments after he had to use his bear repellant to shoo the aggressive fellow away.  I did not think of the "lions, and tigers, and bears" posting until he remarked about it after he returned to civilization and read "Sanaya Says."  We have been living in Florida and using the Florida trail for hiking and biking for seven years and have not seen a single bear.  I did not even know that encountering one was a possibility and never gave it a second thought.  Being 3000 miles away, I had no idea that Ty had packed bear repellant.  So, do you see the magic?  The very first time Ty had a close encounter with a bear, Sanaya spoke to us about bears and fear in their morning message.  Today's message is to let us know we are never alone.  This I know is truth.  Thank you, thank you, Spirit for these beautiful signs.


You will go through periods of tumult and feel as if you are alone.  Never lose faith ever.  You are never alone.  The periods of darkness are sometimes necessary to emerge into even greater light.  You may stumble in the darkness, but never will you remain there, for light is the natural state and darkness only a lapse.  We walk with you always and most definitely know what we are doing, so continue to reach out to us, your unseen helpers, when you feel you are stumbling.  We will never ignore you.  It is all for the greater good.  Maintain this perspective, and when you look back from that brighter place that most definitely is yours, you will see how you were helped.

“Marry me” – two words which instantly bring joy to most hearts.  And why?  For it is a symbol of love and union … two who think they are not whole will become as one.  Each of you is already whole, but relationships allow you to experience oneness in a wholly new way.  Do not become so lost in the other that you do not realize your innate completeness, but most certainly celebrate unity with another, for that other will be one of your greatest teachers.  You will discover that you are not as alike as you think, but those very differences will serve to point the way home to love if you are willing to see these differences as opportunities and not as cause for discord.

The symbol of a marriage is a ring of unity, but that ring can only be worn on one finger at a time.  There is oneness in all things.  Never forget that you are a Whole in One.

Lions, and tigers, and bears.  Oh, my.  Threats to you, you think.  The only real threat to you are your own thoughts.  What if you knew that the spirit—the real aspect you of you—does not die, but continues living and loving eternally?  What if you had no attachments to people or things or events—if you knew that you were forever united with all that is by Love?  Why then, lions, and tigers, and bears would wield no power over you.  Nothing would.  The only true and lasting and meaningful power in your world would be love.  This is the real Truth:  If you can live your life with no fear, you can really and truly live.

One Heartbeat

The mother-child connection is impossible to sever.  For many months you shared the same physical space.  Your hearts were entrained.  Suddenly, physical space separated you, but the bond is unbreakable.  Things may have happened in your lives to take you farther apart physically and emotionally as you experienced the yin and yang of the dance of life, but still you are one, just as you are with all others.  Death does not separate you from your mother any more than birth did.  You are entangled forever, and what is it that joins you?  The very first thing you were aware of from your mother:  the heart.

“Have mercy on me.”  How often have you heard this?  But today we say, have mercy on yourself.  You are far too demanding, far too critical, far too unbending.  It is the human way to expect so much of yourself, to expect perfection, when those who love you—both in human form and without—do not hold such high expectations.  We in spirit do not judge you.  You do that quite well, and in so doing you cut off your connection with your true self.  Let the love flow through you.  Feel it.  Allow it to remind you that no matter what you do or do not do you are loved.  You need please no one.  Just relax and be love.  Set yourself free.  This is mercy.

Thursday, October 23, 2014


And so the question has been asked:  “Are we not allowed to be happy, to celebrate our joys and successes?”  And we answer, you are allowed to do and feel anything you like.  That is why you are having this human experience.  And what happens with emotions?  They balance each other out.  The farther you swing from the center in one direction, the farther will be the opposite swing.  It is the Law of Balance.  For every mountain there is a valley.  This is just as true in the physical sense as the emotional. 

Does this mean you should not experience moments of ecstatic joy?  There is a subtle difference between the joy and bliss of “being” which one experiences in pure communion with the spirit, and moments of mania one experiences as a human.  This mania must seek its equal and opposite reaction in order to find your way back to the center.

So, there is no “should” or “should not” about it.  If you are willing to experience both sides of the swing of the pendulum, play with your emotions.  Swing as wildly as you care, but this can be a bit hard on the body and mind.  You will eventually find it far more peaceful to observe from the center and be bliss.  You do this by aligning with your true self, which has no attachments or aversions, and rising as high as you can on the vertical axis of consciousness to connect with the real you.  Herein lies peace.

Always a Reason

Disappointment is a human emotion.  It comes from not getting or doing something that you expected or foresaw, but that indicates a future predicated upon many variables.  Those in your sister realm do not experience disappointment.  We remain in the now-moment and see the many possibilities.  We have what you call “The Big Picture” where much has already happened in what you call your future.  We see all as learning opportunities, and for this we rejoice.

When you feel disappointed by events we ask you to relax and count your many blessings.  What have you learned?  How can you grow?  Be grateful for this learning opportunity and know that you are never alone.  You are bathed in love.  Soak it up and be present until the reason for all that happens presents itself most clearly.

Deep Cleaning

Pain in the physical body results from disease or a wound.  Pain in the emotional body results from dis-ease and emotional wounds which have not been healed.  All require attention or they will fester.  Do not ignore emotional pain.  Face it head on.  Ask it, “What are you trying to show me?” and it will answer if you are brave enough to listen and to hear. 

And now we offer you a simple way of cleansing the wounds, no matter how deep.

When you have discovered the underlying cause of your pain, sit quietly with your eyes closed and relax as much as possible.  Using your consciousness as the vehicle to healing, gently pull that memory and its associated pain from your body, seeing it as a ball of dense energy.  If you are sensitive, you may feel the energy center where this ball of pain has been stored.  Pull it out and hold it in front of you in both hands like an offering.  Realize that you have been carrying around this pain long enough.  Wring it out like a dirty sponge.  The deeper the hurt, the muddier the water that will flow from it.  Now see a shaft of bright light coming down and cleansing the energy that remains in your hands.  See the previously dirty ball of energy now sparkling and bright.  Return this pure energy to your body. 

There.  It is done.  You need no longer carry around that old pain.  You will feel lighter instantly.  Now simply remain alert for the next stabbing pain of emotional discomfort and repeat the cleansing process as needed.  The more pure is the vessel, the more you can express the pure Love that is you.

Showing the Best Side

I’ll show HIM!”  When have you heard this?  When have you thought or said this?  And what was the motive?  In each case there is a sense of righteousness that one’s actions or thoughts must be heard or validated.  Recognize the human side at work here.  See the inherent sense of separation.  See that those who one would wish to show another way have not nearly as much to be shown as the one who feels so indignant.  This one could indeed be shown a thing or two:  that all are here to learn and grow and each does so in his own way at his own pace.  When you come to this realization, then your phrase changes to one that is far more peaceful and of the spirit:  “I’ll show him … love.”

As Close as Your Thoughts

Are your loved ones who have passed with you as you say, “24/7”?  Not exactly.  They are with you as you need them and as you think of them.  It is a sharing of consciousness, a blending of energy which accompanies you just as they did whilst in human form.  If you spent much time together and still experience an intense desire for their presence, they comply, if it benefits the All, but even when they were in physical form there were times when you were apart, were there not?  Their lives continue on the other side, but the greater the bond whilst here, the greater the ongoing presence.  It is no bother.  You are not impeding their growth.  As you will one day learn, they can be in more than one place at one time, for there is no place and time in their current state.  Do not despair if you do not sense them.  They are with you and doing their best to comfort you.  May you find comfort in our words this day.

Fully Engaged

To do something halfway is to only put half of your heart into it.  Half-hearted.  This means that the desire or motive is lacking.  And when you put your whole heart into something?  Why, then there is nothing that can hold you back.  At a subtle level, others recognize half-heartedness.  People sit up and take notice at whole-heartedness, for when one is fully aligned and motivated, this is felt by others at all levels.  There is a vibrancy that cannot be missed. 

If you are doing something with only half of your heart as you say it, stop and ask yourself why.  Often all that is needed to kick your actions into high gear is a dose of awareness.  On the other hand, that self-same awareness may alert you that your efforts may be better focused on something with which you can more fully engage.  Once again, awareness is the key.  The greater good is always served coming from a state of wholeness.

Second Nature

Compassion … Can you ever have too much?  Compassion says, “I know what you are going through, and even if I cannot change your situation, I can send you love.”  Compassion says, “I understand that you do not know your true nature as love or you would not behave as you do,” and you send love.  Compassion is the gift that keeps on giving.  It does not hold back.  It knows no limits.  It walks hand in hand with love, for it is born of love.  And so are you, which is why when you are aligned with your true nature, compassion is second nature.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014


You all just want to be loved.  Why do you think your world is in the condition it is?  So many equate power with love.  They do not know they are love inside, and so they experience fear.  This manifests in ways that are often less than loving. 

What if you had no fear?  What if you knew that you were loved more than life itself and that nothing could take that away from you?  If you knew this with certainty, then you would be a force for Good in your world.  You would be a leader who neither sought nor needed external power.  You would be peace.  You are all of that now.  It is only a matter of realization of the Self.

Sharing Love

A bear hug.  Could you not use one right now?  What is it about connecting with another face to face and heart to heart?  Within yourself you are whole, but in connecting with another you experience yet another level of wholeness—Love experiencing itself.  This awakens within you the awareness that all is Love and you are That.

Giving and receiving are one and the same.  You cannot have one without the other.  In the case of a bear hug, the giver is the receiver as well.  So, do not wait for another to come to you.  Find another with whom to share this most wondrous connection.  Give the gift of your love and do so generously.

It is tiring at times to maintain focus.  Why is this so?  For the mind wants to chatter.  It is like a little child filled with curiosity who speaks incessantly and wanders everywhere it can in search of new wonders.  Is it any wonder you find it difficult to quiet the mind in meditation?  But even children must rest.  Sleep ensures this, but when the mind is refreshed, practice training it not to wander quite so much by contemplating a thing or a phrase.  Do your best to keep the mind focused on this single thing.  Not only will you be more peaceful throughout your day, but you will increase your connection with the greater aspect of the Self which cannot be heard above the chatter.

Beware of moments when anger or frustration flares.  Yes, they may be fleeting, but the energy of that experience is now registered within your field.  Will you allow it to remain there and build up when added to by other similar moments?  Small disturbances become large blockages.  To overcome this, at the moment you experience a flare-up, acknowledge it with detachment.  Take a deep breath then, and exhale slowly.  As you do so, see the carrier wave of that lower-vibration-experience flowing out of you through the soles of your feet and through your fingertips.  This is release.  You have just discharged the static so that you will not be nearly as likely to spark again.  This is transcendence—rising above your human nature and taking action from the place in you that is spirit.

What Friends are For

And so, you have a friend who has done something that bothers you.  In fact, it has you to the point where you feel you must say something.  Isn’t that interesting?  Why do you feel you must step in?  Why do you feel you must set them straight?  Can you instead laugh and say, “Oh, that is who they are and how they behave,” and love them in spite of actions contrary to what you consider correct? 

Your friends are among your greatest teachers.  You are all here to teach each other to love more.  If someone is doing something that will cause harm, then by all means speak up, but if they are simply acting in their own way and it is not your way, examine your motives and bring in more love.  In this way your friend has actually helped you to grow, and that is what friends are for.

Friday, October 10, 2014


Do not grow discouraged when one you are with does not think or react as you do.  This is the perfect example of the yin and the yang.  Together you make up wholeness.  Look at your individual perspectives.  You are convinced that your way is right and the other is convinced their way is right.  How can this be?  It is all a matter of viewpoint.  There are not clear borders between your differences.  Just like in the yin and yang symbol, you flow back and forth into each other’s space in an ongoing dance of opposites.  This is the dance of life in human form.

But What?

“But, but …” This is the human way – to counter any thought or suggestion that might require change.  Today we once again recommend listening to your thoughts.  Catch yourself each time the ego tries to insert a “Yes, but,” and stop.  What else could you insert in place of this habitual excuse?  “Yes, I hear you,” is a good start.  And then allow what you have heard to sit awhile.  Watch how long the “buts” persist and counter each one.  You may very well find an interesting solution to a deep-seated challenge.  But, but if you fail to listen, perhaps you will not.

Earthly responsibilities can easily push you out of balance.  What do we mean by this?  You can become so overwhelmed with your earthly tasks that you forget that you are also fully spirit.  When you fail to pay attention to that side of you which is peace and love, you become imbalanced.  The result is frustration, flare-ups of anger, and what you generally label, “stress.”

There is an easy solution.  Because you are so mired in time, use time to your advantage.  Set a timer for regular reminders to take a time-out.  When the timer sounds, set your human role aside for the time limit of your choice, and go within.  Sit with eyes closed, body relaxed, and breaths slow and deep.  Set the intention of connecting with your Higher Self and reminding yourself what is important.  In this way, all of your earthly tasks will get done and you will not become “undone.”

Yes, the soul of another can visit you in your dreams.  It can visit you when you are awake.  The soul has no bounds.  We are not speaking only of the souls of those who have passed.  The souls of those in human form wander about at night as well.  It is only the body that needs recharging.  The soul is busy growing, and learning, and loving.  That is what the soul does, with or without your human consent.  Try as you might with your free-will choices, you cannot hold the soul back.  It knows why it exists.  It knows what is in store for it.
Make life easier for your soul and allow it to play.  Allow it to grow.  Allow it to love.  Thus in alignment will you enjoy your time here oh so much more.

When the body gives you a sign of discomfort, this is a cry for attention.  Do not take this as a sign that you have already gone over the edge, but that you may be teetering.  You could go either way at this first sign of discomfort.  So many of you feel the sniffles and the soreness and react with dismay.  This is followed by the declaration that you are ill.  You have now pushed yourself over the edge and will suffer the consequences of the power of belief. 

What would happen if you took notice of this valuable warning you call a symptom?  What if, instead of believing a certain course of ailments must now ensue, you thanked the body for the warning and stepped back?  Now safe from the edge, you pamper the body, lovingly treating it to rest and relaxation, not because it is ill, but as a thank you for showing you what it needed before you fell off the edge.  Why, in short order, you may find the body ready to resume its normal actions instead of picking itself up from a fall which need not have happened.  Listen to what the body is telling you, but do not jump off the edge … to conclusions.

Not Ever

Never underestimate the power of love.  You have a saying to never say never, but when it comes to love, there are no rules.  Rules are human things.  Love is of the spirit.  You are human and spirit, but so many do not realize this.  And so, you need your rules.  Love knows no bounds.  It flows with, through, into, and as all that is.  It is those who are blinded to this Truth who act irrationally.  They are held in darkness by their ignorance of the love that they are.  How can this be, if that Power is them?  It is all a play of the mind—a mental blindfold that can be removed in a moment of illumination so blinding it could bring you to your knees. 
Drop to your knees, why don’t you, and pray to know your true self as Love.  In the meantime, harness the fullness of love that you know now and send it to those around you.  As you do so, never forget who you are.  There is never a moment that you are not love(d).

Chattanooga-blue-320 x176Note from Suzanne:  Join me online tomorrow morning, October 5th at 11:00 EDT to watch and listen as I deliver the message at the Sunday service at Unity of Chattanooga.  It will be streamed live on their homepage at http://www.unityofchattanooga.org/   Please note that if you visit the site before or after the service, you will find their normal homepage.  The homepage will change to a live video during the service Sunday morning.  Because I have been given this opportunity to share online, I have chosen to repeat a powerful message of faith, hope, and love that I gave elsewhere earlier on our summer tour.  I feel it is a message that cannot be repeated often enough.  (By the way, we have learned that things are a bit casual here and that the service may not begin exactly on "military" time!)

With Assurance

Those who need reassurance need love more than ever, for what is lacking is a lack of trust.  What is it they do not trust?  That all is in perfect order.  And why do they not see this?  For they are focused on the human level.  You walk in two worlds at once as spirit and human, but if you need constant reassurance, you are not aware of this truth.

Humans are enmeshed in the dance of duality—the dance of yin with yang.  With so many of you dancing--with the darkness and the light which make up the wholeness constantly flowing back and forth—you cannot see the wholeness—the big picture.  You focus on those opposing you and you despair that there will always be lack and strife.  You do not see that this is part of the dance to bring you back to your awareness of your true nature … to Wholeness.

When you so greatly need reassurance, there is only one way to find it.  You must rise above your viewpoint from the dance floor.  From there, the view never changes.  Rise with us now to the balcony.  Transcend your earthly viewpoint and see from this place of Love the impermanence of the dance.  If it is not going as you would like down there on the floor, just you wait.  The music will change.  The dances will change.  Those dancers who know this will not seek reassurance.  They will continue to dance and will help those around them to improve their steps.

Transcend your doubts and rise above to the balcony when you find yourself in need of repeated assurance.  You are loved and all is well.  Not everyone enjoys dancing, but it serves a great purpose.  Only from the balcony can you see it All.

Chance Encounters

Everyone comes into your life for a reason.  Even the briefest of encounters holds meaning.  How often do you pass another without acknowledgment … without realizing the gift that has just passed you by.  The gift is in the opportunity to turn up the light within you and within them.  The gift may extend even farther if you pause long enough to acknowledge the Presence.

A chance encounter may turn into something far more lasting.  Of course you cannot stop and talk to all you pass on the street, but open your heart and send silent greetings to all.  In this way you bless the world with your presence, which is the Presence, in human form, of Love.

Put to the Test

How many times in your life do you face what you perceive as a challenge?  You feel as if you are being judged, and if other humans are involved, then most likely you are.  And what of it?  If you can face this test and others’ scrutiny with the knowledge of Who you are, then one test is the same as all others.  The answer is always the same:  You are a manifestation of the God-Force, of Spirit, of the purest Love and Light that exists.  If you know this with all of your heart and do not doubt, then why would you doubt the outcome of any test?

Aha!  The “what-ifs.”  Yes, we know of them.  And if the outcome is not as you at the human level envisioned, then you have also forgotten that in the greater picture all is in perfect order always.  And so, the answer is as it always has been:  Surrender, trust, and be as the child.  Allow the Love to flow through you and AS you, and enjoy the experience.

In reality, there are no tests when you see with the eyes of Spirit.  There is simply the joy of Being.

There is no sacrifice too big when it comes to serving another.  Have not there been those you call heroes who sacrificed their physical lives for another?  You call this “the ultimate sacrifice,” and indeed it may seem that way for those left behind, but for the one who passed, it was merely a grand act of love followed by many more, for they now exist in a world where love knows no bounds.

If all of you in this physical world placed no bounds around love, service would be the norm.  Giving of yourselves would be no sacrifice at all.  You would simply be doing what comes naturally.  Those of you who give of yourselves naturally, therefore, are indeed heroes in a land where a false sense of separation rules.  Those who think in terms of the self are living in a world of delusion.  Those who are self-less have remembered who they are. 

Heroes abound.  Any act you take to love and serve another is a self-less act and is indeed heroic.
