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."

A New Site for Sanaya

Sanaya Says will no longer be posted here on Blogger, but on my website.  You can reach it two ways:  www.SanayaSays.com or www.SuzanneGiesemann.com/sanaya.  Those of you who receive Sanaya's daily messages by email should continue to receive the emails as usual. This change is thanks to the gift of an angel named Katie Benedetto, a brilliant website developer, who suggested that it would be better to integrate the daily posts from Sanaya into my website than to use the separate Blogger site I have been using .  Katie’s timing was divine, as I have been getting daily error messages and have sensed that the Blogger site was close to crashing.  Now all posts will be backed up regularly.  Please bear with us as we tweak the new page.  The archive system has a little bug, but all 1908 past posts are there.  (Can you believe it:  1908 posts … Thank you, Sanaya!)  We are working on the “category” function so that you will be able to find just the right subject at any time. In the meantime, the messages and the energy should remain consistent … it’s all about love.

Shifting Focus

Suicide … the taking of one’s earthly life by intention or will.  It does not cause the death of the soul, for that is eternal.  The life lessons must continue, for that is the nature of the soul … ever learning, ever expanding.  And now you learn a new term this week:  "egocide"—the death of the ego through willful intent.  This you must do over and over if you wish to place your focus on the soul, for ego is an integral part of the human.  Yes, the spiritual path is a journey from ego to soul, but not the complete obliteration of the ego.  Ego is necessary for certain human functions. This term, “egocide,” is quite useful, however, for bringing awareness that it is through your choices that you can move your focus from ego to spirit and thus advance your growth.

Egocide.  It is a willful act that says, “I choose to focus on unity and love through the willful suppression of the illusion of separation.  I value the ego for the lessons it brings.  I embrace its role, but for now, I choose love.”

Expecting

Expectations are often fulfilled.  This is why it is so very important to monitor your thoughts.  And then, when you have a thought in mind, follow it carefully from the conscious mind to the subconscious mind.  There you will find expectations born of a belief system which may be long outdated.  You are growing and changing.  The soul is pulling you onward, but deep inside you may have expectations based on past perceived failures or outdated perceptions of how life works.  Uproot and discard these.  Set new expectations based upon your current truth and expect the highest possible results.

Gifts

You take many things for granted … that the sun will always rise … that you will have a roof over your head.  We do not wish to frighten you—only to remind you that all things change but the one constant:  that you exist.  You, as Love, are here to be the expression of Love.  The more you do that—the more you identify with the side of you that is Love—the less you take things for granted.  You appreciate more the transitory nature of the temporal world and focus on what matters most.  Take things and beings for granted if you will, but may you be granted the grace of focusing on love until all that surrounds you is seen as the gift that it is.

No Doubt

Belief is paramount.  If you do not believe you can do a thing, then you are correct.  If you do not believe a thing is possible, and then you see it being demonstrated, then it becomes possible in your mind.  If you then believe it is possible for others, but not for you, then you have stepped back into limitation, which is of the ego.  The soul knows no limitation, for it knows not of fear and doubt.  Clear them out, and then ask to see another way of looking at whatever it is you wish to do or accomplish.  There is more than one way to go around an obstacle, but first you must learn that the obstacle begins in your mind.

Therefore

One of your respected philosophers stated, “I think, therefore I am.”  We would like to give you another twist on that phrase, one that will carry you much farther in your awakening and realization of why you are here.  Are you ready? 

“I AM, therefore I love.”

It can be no other way, for your Source—The Great I AM—is Love, and you are an aspect of That.  If you feel that you “are”—that you exist—but you do not love, then your focus remains tightly on the human aspects of you.  How to shift it to the soul, which is love?  Go to the heart.  Focus there and ask your version of God to show you what love is.  Ask with all sincerity to get to know true, divine love, and then relax.  You have taken the first step.

You are, therefore you love.  Now be that which you are … that which all men seek.  It is your birthright, and you are worthy.

Heads or Tails

There are two sides to every coin, just as there are two sides to you.  We are not speaking of the opposites such as good and bad, happy or sad.  Whilst in human form you have the aspect of you that is spirit and the side that is human.  Call them the soul and the ego, if you will.  The point of human existence is to master focusing on the soul, exhibiting the soul’s chief characteristic of love.  The challenge in this game of heads or tails is that the spirit side, which initially is prevalent when born, will become hidden to you as a child.  Then it becomes your task as you age to remember it … to identify with the soul aspects by choice. 

Ah, there’s the rub.  In this game of heads or tails, ego or spirit, which side is up is completely up to you.  Mastery of your emotions is one of the ways you learn to exhibit the soul side more often.  It is not a game of win or lose.  It is all about the soul’s growth, but most humans continue to identify with the human aspects, and so we will put it into human terms:  When one identifies more with the soul and Love is face up, then everybody wins. 

Do you see how it works?  You are still human.  The ego aspect of you is always there and is to be embraced if you are to experience wholeness, but choose to be “love side up”—beating the odds of chance in this game called “being human”—and see what happens.

Grateful

Gratitude.  Can you apply it to everything in your life … the so-called bad things as well as the clearly good?  All of life is about the experience and the learning that occurs from rolling about in those experiences, fully covering yourselves in the variety of them.  Can you be grateful for the challenge?  Not until you see and apply the lessons.  Are you feeling bitter about a past lesson?  Then you have not looked for the lesson or it has not yet revealed itself.  Perhaps the lesson in your challenge was not yours to learn, but someone else’s.  Souls do that, you know … volunteer to undergo a challenge so that others will benefit.  Humans are often not so generous, but souls understand the oneness.  Be grateful.  Gratitude opens the heart, and perhaps with the heart unleashed you will see the blessings that your life allows.

Unrehearsed

You can prepare your lines all you wish … rehearse your actions until you know every movement in every moment, and what will that gain you?  A false sense of security.  Why?  Because you never act alone.  Life is about the interaction of all the parts of the Whole, and all the other parts are not so well rehearsed.  They are each acting out their own parts, some with great unpredictability.  For some, this may bring fear, which is why they prepare so.  Control is an elusive thing, as is peace, until you realize that a Force far greater than you is pulling the strings.  Yes, you have a great say in all matters, for you have free will, but until you realize that you do not run the show, you will experience frustration at times and occasional disappointment.  That is natural for the human side of you.  What is natural for the spirit side is flow.  When you can flow with the dance of life instead of marching out in rigid, well-rehearsed steps, then you will find you can enjoy life with far more ease.

Make the Call

Do not forget to speak to those who have passed.  Yes, we know that even here in human form you often forget to call those closest to you, so wrapped up in your own lives do you become.  What if you were to set aside a few moments for a mental phone call to heaven?  It would be quite well received.  Is this silliness?  Not at all.  Just as you often know who is on the telephone before you answer, your loved ones on the other side pick up on your thoughts. 

Sit with the intention of making this connection, and place your call.  That is all it takes.  It may feel one sided as you rattle on.  No matter.  Trust that you are heard.  Connect at the heart.  If you need a sign that you were heard, ask for one.  It may take a few days, but so grateful will be your loved ones that they will do their best to merge heaven and earth to acknowledge your efforts.  Make the call.  The love connection is one which never dies.

What Others Think

A silly picture or any number of things triggers embarrassment.  Embarrassment is of the ego.  The soul knows only love.  Of what are you worried?  What others will think.  Where did you learn to think like that?  In this question lie two keys to your discomfort.  In the first is the word “learn.”  Embarrassment is learned behavior.  Are indigenous peoples embarrassed by their naked skin?  Why are you?  This is learned behavior.  The second key lies in the word “think.”  Thinking is of the ego.  The soul, based in the heart, knows feeling, not thinking, but feelings of love.  Lesser feelings are born of thinking.  We believe you most likely get our drift by now.  You can drift between embarrassment and peace, between ego and soul, between shackles and freedom any time you would like in your world of time.  Isn’t it about time you put what others think aside and simply focus on what really matters?

A Change in View

Are you stuck and cannot see a way out of your predicament?  Rise above for the soul’s eye view.  When you are zoomed in on your issues alone, you often fail to see the other opportunities.  Who else is involved?  Who else can help you?  Are you indeed stuck, or are there other choices?  There always are, but they often involve change, something most humans shy away from.  If you are ill at ease and seek peace, then change is necessary.  If you are unhappy and seek peace, then change is the answer.  Is change so bad?  Often the fear of it is worse than the actuality.  Fear … your greatest obstacle to peace.  Rise above and study the choices.  Study them well until you are so familiar with them that change is a welcome next step.  Have no fear.  Peace lies just around the bend.

Letting Go

When you become impatient with another, this is an indication of expectations on your part.  You are expecting them to be as you are.  But why should they be?  To what end?  To please you?  To have your experiences?  Are you beginning to see how the human mind works?  Can you release expectations?  If so, what is the result for you?  Peace.

We understand why you might want others to have certain experiences.  Perhaps you do know best.  But perhaps the other has their own lessons to learn.  Can you be at peace with that?  All are here to learn lessons.  Help another stay out of harm’s way, by all means, but there comes a point when even that is not your role.  All are here to learn and grow, including you.  Release expectations about others whilst helping to the best of your ability and find peace.

Growing Up

Childhood issues can remain in the energy field well into adulthood.  Some humans take them to the grave and beyond, even to the point of bringing them back to battle with them for another lifetime.  Did you know that carrying them around is unnecessary?  Once a lesson is learned, it can be seen with gratitude and transmuted into higher vibrations.  There are those who were mistreated.  Others were abandoned.  We will not go into the myriad ways humans do a disservice to one another, but in carrying the vibration of victimhood forward, you are perpetuating the legacy and doing a disservice to the self and to the Self.

Are you aware of how you were mistreated and how that is affecting you now?  That is the first step.  Now are you willing to change?  To stop the abuse of yourself?  It only takes a moment of recognition of this, the greatest opportunity of your life … to change the pattern.  How do your childhood hurts show up in your life today?  It is time to leave the things and ways of your childhood behind and step into your true power.  One before you may have wielded anger or another such low vibration, but you now have the opportunity to wield the only power that transmutes all beneath it … Love.  Isn’t it time?

New Transcript and Recording

Note from Suzanne:  You can read and/or listen to the latest session with Sanaya held at the annual conference of the Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies on June 11th.  Here's the link:  http://www.suzannegiesemann.com/sessions-with-sanaya-2/ 

Sticky or Smooth

Fly paper or Teflon?  Which do you resemble most when others accuse you of something or apply labels to you?  When lower vibrations which do not serve you enter into your energy field, do you allow them to stick or to roll off?  If they stick, how long until you discard them?  Do you realize the choice is completely up to you?  Nothing sticks to spirit, not even the good vibrations, for there is no good or bad, simply “being” … being love.  What a way to live … unaffected by vibrations around you.  Again it comes back to awareness of who you are.  You are temporarily in a human suit, which can be sticky or smooth.  You choose the suit you are wearing, but it is changeable.  Which one suits you better?

Are You There Yet?

As a child you rode in the back seat of the car and asked, “Are we there yet?”  And in focusing on the destination, you missed the scenery along the way.  Are you there yet?  Where are you trying to go?  What if your vehicle should stall here and now?  Could you be content, or is what lies ahead so appealing to you that you can focus on nothing else?

What if we were to tell you that life is all about the ride?  There is nowhere to go, simply one scene after another unfolding right before your eyes.  Are you missing them by continuously asking, “Are we there yet?”  Pull over at the rest stop if you’d like, for the journey is eternal.  Rest a while, and while you do, have a look around and see what you have been missing. 

The place you have been so anxious to arrive at has been in the seat with you all along.  That urge to go, go, go is actually an urge to be, be, be.  Be what?  Be awake.  To remember.  Remember what?  That love is all there is, and you are that.  To feel love, give love.  Aha.  The car has arrived.  Welcome Home.

Living a Double Life

There is more to your world than meets the eye.  The light that meets the eye is but one sliver of the light in existence.  How you limit yourselves when you think that if you cannot see it, that it does not exist.  Who is it that you are hearing as you read these words?  You cannot see us, yet we have given you far too many synchronicities, far too many direct answers to your questions in times of need to not trust that we are here.  Yet, can you see us?  Most cannot.

Trust the eyes as far as they can take you, and then go a step farther.  And then take another step.  In taking these steps you are entering a new world of possibilities that has been there all along.  “Hello,” you say, “Is there someone there?  Can you help me?”  And now you can begin to truly live in both worlds.

Living a double life is not all cloak and daggers like your spy movies.  It is an expanded way of learning, and growing, and getting to know yourself as both human and spirit, and most of all, as Love.

All for One

Do nothing at the expense of another.  This is quite challenging for the human being who is ruled by the ego.  The ego sees only separation.  He or she thinks of the self only and takes actions that are self-centered.  “Every man for himself” is the motto that points directly to ego.  There is little soul growth in such an attitude, for the spiritual path is all about the journey from ego to oneness.  Oneness sees all as part of a whole, made up of countless souls.  These souls are not separate, but comprised of the same indivisible Source-energy.  “Every man for himself” becomes “Every soul for the whole” and then taking an action that would cause harm, discomfort, or even inconvenience without agreement from another becomes unthinkable.

Rainy Days

You wish for every day to be sunny, but life is not like that.  Into each life some rain must fall.  Bring to mind that special scent just after the rain when all has been cleansed.  What you saw as a curse was actually a blessing, come to wash away impurities. 

What is it that needs to be cleansed in your emotions?  The Universe will conspire to show you.  Pain is a sign that there is something within you in need of cleansing.  Pain is your rain, come to show you the way to the sun.  You can put up an umbrella and cry, “But I do not want to get wet!  I enjoy being dry and comfortable just as I am!”  or you can stand in the downpour, face the pain, and be free.

Before Your Eyes

Seize this moment to create a dream.  Seize this moment to see it as true.  What are you waiting for?  Do you think all pieces must fall into place before you can believe that your dream is possible?  The pieces fall into place when you see the dream as possible.  Your dream need not be of tremendous proportion.  It may be a small secret you have been holding inside, silently wishing it were true about you.  Seize the moment and bring that dream to the front of your mind.  See it before your eyes.  Feel it and own it.  This is how dreams are created.  They go nowhere when you hold them as a future projection.  They happen when you seize them as your reality now.

Note from Suzanne:  Please see my latest "News and Musings" post to find out about an exciting new meditation coming soon and how that came to be.  If you don't already receive that blog by email, don't miss it in the future by signing up in the right-hand column.

The Perfect Mix

You attract into your life exactly what and who you need for the greatest learning.  We are not speaking of doing so through your wishes, which does happen, but at a subtle level through the Law of Balance.  Opposites attract is another way of saying this.  Of course, you also have those who are quite complementary to you in vibration to help amplify the strengths you possess.  As we stated: all for a reason.  Like a recipe with the perfect ingredients, each person in your life adds the perfect mix to the stew that is you.  When the mix gets a bit overpowered with one flavor, perhaps it is time for a change.  The soul knows, and circumstances will unfold to correct the seasoning just right. 

Look around you at the people in your life and see what you have attracted to you.  What are you learning?  What are you refusing to see?

Beyond the Veil

Why do people stop and stare at rainbows?  They bring out the awareness, if only at a subtle level, that there is more to reality than meets the eye.  One moment you are looking at a clear blue sky, and the next you are seeing a swath of brilliant colors painted in an arc before you.  What causes this appearance?  Is it real?  As real as you are.  But is it solid?  No.  A thing need not be solid to be real, nor need it be visible to make it real.

Your loved ones who have passed, along with the angels and the masters, are as real and as present as the rainbow.  You cannot make a rainbow appear any more than you can make the veil disappear to see your loved ones.  The veil lifts when it does by grace, just as the rainbow appears when conditions are right, giving you a glimpse of reality that shifts your reality.  Until it does so, we send you rainbows as reminders that all is not as it seems.  Your loved ones are not gone forever.  They are just beyond the veil of illusion, their lessons here completed as yours continue.  Make the most of your time here, won’t you?

Reality

What is reality?  That upon which you are focused and take as your current experience in any given moment.  You say that perception is reality, and this is true, but do not fall into the trap of believing that what you perceive is the only reality.  Change the way you perceive reality and your reality changes.  This is true mentally, as you may know.  If you change your thoughts to more beneficial ones, then your reality becomes more enjoyable, and the opposite is true as well.  If you put on a pair of 3 dimensional glasses, your physical reality changes, and so on.  Do you see?  Reality is changeable.  Do not become so fixed, so set in your ways, that you block out possible learning opportunities and alternative experiences with which to experiment.  That is why you are here:  for the joy of experimenting and the growth that results from it.

Saturday, June 13, 2015

You

The center of attention.  This is what most humans secretly crave to be.  Why is this?  Because each of you is a focus of Consciousness, the center of which is you.  But there is more than you in existence.  There is you, and you, and you, and you … all having experiences for the growth of the soul.  Move your attention away from what you falsely perceive as the only center in existence and you will discover the intricate links between the perceived centers.  With this shift in perspective, you will see that the center of all of the you’s make up one limitless, boundless You.  Imagine how much you can learn, experience, and enjoy if and when you take the focus off of you and focus on You.

Engaged

When you sit in the back of the room, you are disengaged, and there is a reason.  When you walk to the front of the class, you are fully engaged, sending out a message to yourself and all others:  “I am interested in what is going on.  I am here for the full experience.  Count me in.”

Where do you sit in the classroom of life:  in the back, going through the motions, or in the front row, fully engaged, here to get the most out of every moment?  A simple shift is all it takes, but you must be the one to get up and change your seat.

Through the Trees

You are expecting bells and whistles on your journey.  You want to have apparitions and great experiences when you sit to meditate.  When these things fail to happen you are disappointed, looking for the big events, which are actually small things.  You are missing the big picture, which includes the small things.  As a result of your meditative practice, do you notice how your patience grows, and your intuition increases, and your stress goes down?  These gifts may appear to you so subtly that you fail to notice.  Add them together and compare them with your past behavior, and lo!  There is your miracle!  There is your “big thing.”  “Do not lose the forest through the trees” is a wise statement.  Enjoy the entire journey, the big and small events—most especially the latter, for every moment counts.

Surrender

The act of surrender shows the utmost of strength.  To overcome ego’s will and the human belief that one must always be in charge requires fortitude unknown to many.  What is this act that says, “I am not in charge here.  I release the need to do it all, to have things my way, and to be in control?”  It is not weakness, but a display of immense power.  Do you see the paradox?  In surrendering the human aspects of Self, you are showing that you know there is another side of you.  Surrender the need to have all the answers, to know how this unseen side works, and you will come to know it.  How do you surrender?  You close your eyes or turn them skyward and say, “Lead me.  Guide me.  Show me what to do next.”  It is that simple.

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

In Trust

Trust is a beautiful thing.  It leads you to step out with confidence and take on tasks which otherwise you might not undertake.  It leads you to lean on others you might not otherwise ask for assistance.  Why do you fail to trust?  For you have done so in the past and met with less than optimal results.  Ah, that is why trust will always carry a choice.  This is when you learn to trust in that sixth sense … in the guidance of the heart, and to act on it.  The more you do so, the more your faith is buttressed until doubt becomes knowing, and trust becomes full faith and trust that your thoughts and actions are guided.  What a beautiful way to live.  Do so, and so it is.

The Sixth "Scent"

The gift of smell … one of your physical senses, but one through which Spirit can speak.  You are drawn to the beauty of a rose --the flower of love -- by sight, but in taking that extra step, you can enjoy its pleasant aroma as well.  The gift need not always be pleasant to be a gift.  You may be repelled by an odor and know to stay away from something which may harm you.  And what of the gift of a scent when no thing or person is apparently present?  Suddenly, the familiar perfume of a loved one who has passed or the smoke from a dear father’s cigar fills the nose.  How does this happen?  It is not magic.  It is merely the creation of a specific frequency that triggers a memory, and in so doing, sends you a message:  “I AM here, my love.  I have never left you.”

You have a saying:  “The nose knows.”  Spirit knows what you need at all times and sends gifts for the nose as a small reminder that Love is the essence of all that is.

The Peace Prayer

Note from Suzanne:  a follower wrote:  "Please ask Sanaya for a prayer I can say to help the all the people affected by war, injustice, etc. I feel so helpless when I watch the news and I want the words that will really help lessen the pain and despair I see."  I  did so, and hear is what I received:

Peace be upon the earth, but until it can be, peace be in my heart.  As peace is in the heart of each man and woman, may the seeds of love be sown so that peace prevails and no longer will man war against man.  Until such time as peace rules across the lands and in the heart of all, may I feel the peace in my heart that I wish to see in this world.

Believe in Yourself

(While Suzanne is out of Internet and cell phone range for four days, please enjoy this repeat of a favorite message from Sanaya)

How many times do you doubt yourself? You wish to do something, to accomplish some task, to achieve some goal that lies in your heart, yet your thoughts hold you back. You may blame some external cause or some physical weakness, but if you look more closely, again you will see that all that is holding you back is you. You create your reality with your consciousness. If you think you cannot achieve some thing, then this becomes your reality.

There is a strange phenomenon among you … you often wait to be told by others if you are capable of something—a kind of waiting to be given permission to believe in great possibilities. Once another outside of you says, “You can do it!” then, and only then, do you believe. Is this not so? Have you not witnessed this in yourself?

What if you were to become your own cheerleader? If you were not to wait for another, but to tell yourself, “You can do it!” “I believe in you!” “There is nothing you can’t do!” Then, my friends, there would be nothing you could not do.

The truth is, there is nothing you can’t do once you place your full belief and intention on a goal, for it is the belief and intention which hold all power. These are the tools of Consciousness … the tools of Creation. Hold yourself back no longer. Wait no longer for permission or outside encouragement. Believe in yourself. Cheer yourself on. Reclaim your Power.

Unleashed

(While Suzanne is out of Internet and cell phone range for four days, please enjoy this repeat of a favorite message from Sanaya)

There, on the wings of a butterfly you fly, for you do not die.  All is illusion to the physical eye.  There is no such thing as a pure blue sky.  Do you ever stop to wonder why?

Nothing truly is as it seems.  Do not let this confound you.  Perception is reality, so immerse yourself fully in your present reality, but do not become chained to it.  It is not the only reality.  Would you like to walk on the clouds in a world where the sky is violet?  Would you like to fly?  Just you wait. 

Does this sound fantastic?  How does the world appear in your dreams, where anything is possible?  Unleash your dreams here and now, where more is possible than you imagine, for you often fail to dream big enough. 

Unleash your imagination and fly.  Ride a butterfly across the sky.  There’s far more to living than meets the eye.

There You Are!

(While Suzanne is out of Internet and cell phone range for four days, please enjoy this repeat of a favorite message from Sanaya)

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.

Out of Frustration

Where there is anger there is an expectation.  Where there is an expectation, ego is present.  Attachment to outcome is of the ego, the human side of you, not the soul.  The soul says, “And so it is.”  The human says, “I must have it this way or that.”  What you can expect with such an attitude is great joy or great frustration, but rarely peace. 

Most do not realize when attached to outcome that you have a choice of eyes with which to see:  those of the human or those of the soul.  This is true in all cases, in every moment of your life.  The journey from ego to the soul is what spiritual awakening is all about.  Frustration and anger are signposts to let you know far you have come and how far you yet have to travel.

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Comfort

“Oh, don’t do that!” you advise another, when there is no grave danger of harm.  You are simply protecting your beliefs about how things should be done.  Perhaps their actions may cause a bit more work for you.  Perhaps they will necessitate you doing something outside of the norm.  Is that so bad?  Which will bring more peace into your life:  allowing others to be comfortable and undisturbed or having it your way?  Is your emotional comfort dependent upon others’ actions?  If so, then we could rightly shout at you, “Don’t do that!” and insist that you change, but perhaps you would like to come to that decision yourself.

Enjoying the Dance

“Dance with me” … three words which make your heart sing when you wish to enjoy the closeness of another.  It is a special time of bonding, this act of dancing.  Do you know that all of life is a dance?  “Dance with me,” Spirit says to you, but will you dance?  Many humans are self-conscious and prefer to sit out the dance out of awkwardness, shyness, or a simple lack of joy.  But if you can let Spirit lead you, there is nothing to fear, no shame to be had.  It requires nothing more than holding out your hand and saying, “Yes, please lead me.”  And in this moment of surrender and allowing, you become Self conscious … aware that there is more than the smaller self.  As you are then led with grace and ease, you relax enough to enjoy the dance, and it is good.

Appreciation

Honor thy differences.  In this way will you find peace.  In this way will you be able to love.  Instead of needing others to see and think as you do, to give you the love you think you need, you will instead glory in the diversity of Life.  With this appreciation will you appreciate that all of your unique qualities are equally loveable.  Nothing is out of place.  All is as it should be.  All is Life … Spirit … experiencing Itself as love in expression—sometimes a bit twisted by the free will of man—so we advise you to see those distortions as what they are and see past the free will expressions to the pure expressions of God:  the uniqueness of a fingerprint, a snowflake, a raindrop, a smile … no two alike, yet all from the same Source.  Appreciation … it will take you straight back to that which never changes:  Divine Love.

Back There

When were you the safest you can remember as a human … the most loved?  When you floated in your mother’s womb, feeling and hearing her heartbeat and yours merged as one.  When will you have this feeling again, but not as a human?  When you pass from this physical existence and follow the silver umbilical cord back to the womb of Creation once again.  There you will know a love so profound that it has no bounds.  But you need not wait.  This feeling you can create by sitting in the silence and asking to know yourself as Love.  Have you bothered to do so, and to ask the question, “What is God?”  The answer may surprise you, as will the experiences when you can get the human mind out of the way.  Blessings be upon you on this wondrous journey back to Love.

By the Roots

Zero in on your challenges instead of pushing them away.  Do you wish to truly be free?  There is a reason for everything that you do that brings you pain or angst.  Are you willing to find out the root cause and pull out those roots?  All you need do is set the intention of healing yourself and ask the question of your unseen helpers, of Higher Consciousness:  “Why do I behave this way?  Why do I have this challenge?  I wish to be healed.  Show me, please.”  And then, if you will spend time in the silence with an open mind, free of chatter, you will hear the answers.  You will receive the insights.  You can do this.  You do not toil alone.  Healing begins with the willingness to do the healing work and to feel a bit of pain.  It is true:  What you feel you can heal.  Heal thyself with Love.

Rays

Rays of sunlight break through the clouds, catching your attention, so striking are they.  Dark clouds come to all at some point in the human existence.  The rays of light are those unencumbered by the clouds.  They shine through like the sun to lift those in need.  At times you will be in the shadows and at times the roles will be reversed and you will be the ray of light for one whose turn it is to receive. 

Never forget that the eternal Light burns within at all times, but in your human incarnation you will experience clouds as well as sunshine.  Never fear that you are alone.  Look for the rays of sunshine.  They come in many forms … sent to you as the answer to prayers—yours and those of others—for strength and courage to carry on.  Blessings be these rays of light.  Blessings be upon you.

Special

All are Special.  Remember this and allow it to seep into your consciousness at the human level.  May competition become a foreign concept.  May comparisons cease when it comes to good, better, or worse.  There is no need for this, only for ego’s sake.  Ego is the one who shouts, “Look at me!  Please!”  And do you feel the desperation?  He tries to make you think that you need love.  That is always the bottom line for all of you.  The baby learns to cry and compete for attention.  Who has the loudest lungs, the sweetest smile?  And so it continues.  But beyond the cries and acting lies a beautiful soul who already knows the truth:  you are Love.  You always have been.  You and those around you have forgotten this when you fall into the trap of making comparisons.  Look only within, and judge not.  Simply turn up the love for all others, and the needs will slip away.

Free

Ah, yes.  You set a goal for yourself.  Perhaps you were going to eat certain food in certain amounts for a certain number of days and you did not do so.  Perhaps you were going to change a lifelong habit and you fell back into your old ways.  And what happened?  You fell back into your old ways of thinking badly of yourself.  Habits, habits, habits.  What are they?  Patterns of behavior.  And what are you?  A pattern of energy, here to learn and grown and to learn and grow to love.

Can you love yourself—this pattern of energy you call “you” just the way you are without changing your patterns of behavior?  Ah, yes.  There’s the question.  It may be difficult for you to do when you see with your human eyes.  So, shift to seeing with the eyes of the soul, which understands human behavior and patterns.  There you will find compassion for the human side.  There you will find understanding and patience.  There you will be free of shoulds and incriminations … free to simply be love as you look at your human self with the understanding that you are perfect just the way you are, you beautiful soul.

In Memoriam

What is a memorial, but a way of remembering, of keeping something or someone dear in the memory.  Every moment can thus be a memorial moment.  As you pause today to remember and memorialize your fallen ones, we honor all of you.  The true hardship is for those left behind to soldier on.  Death is not a tragedy for those who have passed, but simply a new chapter.  Mourn not your fallen ones, but celebrate Life and Love.  That is what you miss, but it is still there, most especially as you memorialize a being, bringing them to your heart, where they live on always.

Yes, honor those who have passed.  You call it a sacrifice, and yes, it is, but rest assured that your loved ones who died in service salute YOU for your sacrifice.  Can you feel the love they send to you … in memoriam?  Love goes on, and your memories ensure that your loved ones remain close, making every day memorial day.
