With Exuberance

2011-12-18T13:18:00-05:00December 18th, 2011|

Your Source is not separate from you, but It is larger than you. Feel It settle in your heart, this presence, this Christ Consciousness, this knowing that God is not a being, that God is “being,” itself. Can you worship that? You need not worship at all. Simply participate in [...]

Universal Lessons

2011-12-17T13:00:00-05:00December 17th, 2011|

Note from Suzanne: This past week I faced a couple of big interpersonal challenges. The sun is back out today. This morning Sanaya spoke directly to me at first, and then to all of us …Do you not see that what you perceived as some of the best messages came [...]

With New Eyes

2011-12-16T12:52:00-05:00December 16th, 2011|

See with new eyes.  This is the remedy for when you experience discomfort.  If you are unhappy or less than joyful, if your thoughts constantly return to something that makes you uncomfortable, a mere shift in perception will cure your ills.   It is quite easy to get stuck in [...]

Conflict Resolution

2011-12-15T11:40:00-05:00December 15th, 2011|

Conflict arises when two or more do not see eye to eye. You have different ways of approaching the same goal. One wishes to go in one direction, the other in another. Oft times there is confusion about the destination itself. The more you diverge, the more negativity surrounds the [...]

#1. On Right and Wrong

2011-12-14T12:19:00-05:00December 14th, 2011|

You have an expression, “Do not waste your breath.” To you this means to try fruitlessly to defend yourself. This is good advice. What purpose does it do to state your case? Does it matter if one is right and another wrong? What if both are right in their own [...]

#2. On Winning and Losing

2011-12-14T12:18:00-05:00December 14th, 2011|

“You cannot win.” Another of your sayings. What is “winning?” It is when you can beat the chest and say, “Do you see? I am victorious. I was right. I caused the other to admit defeat.” Is that truly winning? What have you won, other than a momentary satisfaction of [...]

Stretched

2011-12-13T12:59:00-05:00December 13th, 2011|

You wish to go back to your bed and crawl into your shell.  At times this life gets a bit much.  The challenges come after you one after another.  Never forget that this is why you are here.  You chose these lessons to help your soul to grow.  If you [...]

2011-12-12T13:34:00-05:00December 12th, 2011|

From Suzanne: Please visit www.SuzanneGiesemann.com for several updates to the website (see "What's New" on the homepage), including a new essay entitled, "The Fear Factor." Meanwhile, Sanaya's message for today is below ...

Round and Round

2011-12-12T13:33:00-05:00December 12th, 2011|

Circles.  Round shapes.  Spheres, balloons, balls.  These have no corners in which to become stuck and stagnate.  A circle is endless.  All on the circle cycles round and round, always with the potential to come back to the beginning. All in the sphere is harmoniously connected.  Look for the shape [...]

The Season of Giving

2011-12-11T13:02:00-05:00December 11th, 2011|

You rush about buying gifts for each other—symbols of your love. Why this tradition of bestowing a gift? “I love you. I wish you to know how much you mean to me. Take this gift as a reminder. When you see it, think of me.”God gives you the gift of [...]

Let it Bloom

2011-12-10T13:33:00-05:00December 10th, 2011|

Note from Suzanne: This week Ty and I attended a really fun Christmas party. All present were separated into four groups for a variety of games. For one of these games each team was given a word and had to write a poem based on that word (ours was “sausage!”). [...]

How’s the Weather?

2011-12-09T13:13:00-05:00December 9th, 2011|

Mastery of the emotions is a lofty goal. To hold a steady state of peace is nigh unto impossible for the average human. Strive for perfection, if you please, but be quite pleased to merely be aware of your emotions from moment to moment. Pay attention to your body. This [...]

The Greatest Gift

2011-12-08T11:34:00-05:00December 8th, 2011|

You package your gifts in a box, then wrap them in colorful paper. Why do you do this? So that the recipient does not know in advance what treasure lies inside. YOU are gift-wrapped, my friend. God has packaged you for a while in the most beautiful of wrappings: a [...]

Peace is the Prize

2011-12-07T13:05:00-05:00December 7th, 2011|

Suddenly a thought occurs to you.  You have forgotten to do this or that, or you focus on how much work lies ahead.  Suddenly you are no longer able to enjoy yourself.  The body tenses.  What has happened?  You were in the now, but now your consciousness has shifted to [...]

In an Instant

2011-12-06T12:37:00-05:00December 6th, 2011|

An argument that lasts but a minute of your time does cause you to separate yourself from another for not just a minute, but for years.  You no longer speak to that other.  The body clenches at the mere anticipation of crossing paths, and when you do cross paths, you [...]

No Strings Attached

2011-12-05T13:13:00-05:00December 5th, 2011|

Abandonment.  What does this mean?  In your concept it means that another has left you—that they no longer need nor want you.  The very reading of these words brings pain to your heart.  All humans want to be needed, wanted, and loved.  We wish you to know that when one [...]

Nudges

2011-12-04T12:23:00-05:00December 4th, 2011|

The physical body has urges.  With these you are familiar.  Quite a few are they, and you respond quite willingly to them, giving yourself food, drink, sleep, exercise, and so on.  But do you not realize that the spirit has urges as well?  These you so often ignore.  You can [...]

Growing Pains

2011-12-03T12:45:00-05:00December 3rd, 2011|

Yes, it is true that man is meant to thrive.  All things seek evolution, and man is no different.  What is evolution, but a path of growth and improvement?  This is your natural tendency.  Can you stop the body from growing?  Behold your fingernails.  Behold the self-healing of a cut.  [...]

“I” vs. “i”

2011-12-02T13:28:00-05:00December 2nd, 2011|

You are beginning to understand this very sacred of concepts, the I AM.  When you truly and fully understand yourself as I AM, then you will know that there is nothing but the "I" that sees all, knows all, is all.  This is not you.  Do not get hung up [...]

Small Talk

2011-12-01T11:52:00-05:00December 1st, 2011|

Do you feel the need to brag and boast?  It is quite normal, but ask yourself why.  If it is an inordinate need to feel better about yourself, then you have forgotten Who your Self truly is.    It is one thing to share with others if that sharing is [...]

Not Even Trying

2011-11-30T12:38:00-05:00November 30th, 2011|

Why is it necessary to be still to hear the voice of God?  The human is programmed to be busy.  This is not part of your spiritual make-up, but a cultural learning.  There are cultures that accept stillness as a rite, knowing that this will bring communion with the Self.  [...]

The Perfect Instrument

2011-11-29T13:17:00-05:00November 29th, 2011|

The one known as St. Francis of Assisi did pray to be an instrument of the Lord.  What does this mean?  An instrument is a tool—an implement used to affect and change something for a desired result.  If God were to use you, what result would God desire?  You know [...]

Your Majesty

2011-11-28T13:16:00-05:00November 28th, 2011|

When you gaze at the ocean, what do you feel?  Are you drawn in by the beauty, the vastness, the power, the majesty?  You could sit and stare for hours, could you not?  Do you not realize that the same Source that created the ocean created you?  What were the [...]

Limits

2011-11-27T13:34:00-05:00November 27th, 2011|

You are very limited by your language, and your language limits you.  There are not words to express your true nature.  You use words such as "Spirit" and "God" and "Love," but how can these finite expressions express that which is boundless?  You must rise above vocabulary and experience that [...]

The Voice Inside

2011-11-26T13:10:00-05:00November 26th, 2011|

You hear a tiny voice inside. From this voice you cannot hide. Is it but imagination? Then why such utter fascination?   Have you not asked, "Are You there? Do You truly know my every hair? Is it You who whispers in my ear? The One so many were taught [...]

Halfway

2011-11-25T13:23:00-05:00November 25th, 2011|

"I'll meet you halfway."  We speak now not of compromise, in which two humans give in a bit of their wants to help each other out, but a meeting of spirit and ego.  Picture our world of spirit and your world of matter.  You think that they are separate, but [...]

Thanksgiving 2011

2011-11-24T13:16:00-05:00November 24th, 2011|

Holidays with missing friends.  You are supposed to give thanks.  You are surrounded by others who are celebrating, yet there feels as if there is a hole in your heart.  You are so very used to the physical presence of loved ones who have passed that their absence leaves an [...]

Beyond the Spotlight

2011-11-23T13:03:00-05:00November 23rd, 2011|

Prominent names do make you sit up and pay attention.  There are some who stand out as leaders and shine a special light.  Others look upon them with adulation.  Why is this?  For they see in that other a bit of what they feel they lack.  Why do you have [...]

Rise

2011-11-22T12:51:00-05:00November 22nd, 2011|

"Why do some face more challenges than others?" you ask.  It is because they can handle it, and more will be the growth of those around them for it.  These special souls did enter this life agreeing to take on more than their share, for they realized what lessons in [...]
