Shanta Gabriel – You are here on this planet to develop yourself fully. When the ancient philosophers stated “Know Thyself,” they were talking about the power of Self-awareness. This means not just one’s consciousness of the physical, or even of the mental and emotional selves. To truly know oneself means having real discernment of who you are as a multi-dimensional being.
You have the power within you to know planes of reality beyond the three-dimensional world in which you live. In fact, developing an awareness of these other states of consciousness creates a link to the joy and love so many are seeking.
The deeper qualities you truly desire in life are beyond the physical plane. They exist in the expanded state of consciousness that is your bond with God, the Source of your very being. To commune within yourself is to find these qualities. It requires a willingness to see beyond your outer self, and to take the time necessary to create conscious awareness of the love and light within you.

Ann Albers – I love it when I sit to channel and that beautiful presence of Divine love comes through. I’ve been feeling it more and more these days, not just when I sit and quiet my mind, but anytime I think a loving or grateful thought. I feel the heat of the Divine rising up when I sit in contentment, or gratitude. I felt it the other day when I was cooking with love for my veggies and spices.
I promised myself that this would be the year I turn to God first for all things I would otherwise seek outside of myself. Increasingly I feel that love and it truly is bliss.
I turned to God when my pool needed repairs. I shut my eyes, relaxed in my breathing and said, “God you are my pool, the people that will fix it, the plaster I need, the water that fills it, and me, the one who will swim in it. ” Let us all work in harmony together. It was fixed without a hitch. I was bombarded with requests for readings, and had the energy to work overtime. Continue reading “Connecting to Source”
AA Gabriel – When you dedicate your life to God, an expansion occurs. When your energy fields expand, the limitations of the physical world begin to drop away. You feel lighter, uplifted, more joyful. Your heart resonates at a deeper level of truth. You begin to operate at a higher level of awareness. This new awareness brings you a more enlightened perspective on your life.
It is a wondrous feeling to be in a place of enlightened perspective. All of a sudden you look at your world with new eyes. Your attitude is one of love and compassion, and you become more forgiving of situations that normally would have upset you. This is the grace available to you from the Divine Source. It is always available to you and exists as a stream of heightened energy frequency, or Pure Consciousness. Continue reading “Lifestream of No Limitations”
John Smallman – All the apparent ongoing chaos in the world most definitely does have a purpose and that is to encourage and nudge humanity to move forward enthusiastically along the path to awakening. In this context moving forward means to recognize and become fully aware of all the “stuff” that no longer serves you, and then to very consciously intend to release it. The recognition is easy, but the releasing can be very demanding, especially when people attempt to deny and disown what comes into their awareness in this fashion because it is seen as unacceptable, unreal, and shamingly painful.
No one enjoys becoming aware either of their inadequacies or of their unkindness in their relationships, and yet there is no one who is free of words or actions that have been driven by these attitudes or behaviors.
However, this “stuff” is, in truth, unreal! Yes, you have memories and awareness of it, but it is part of the unreal game that you have been engaged in for eons, and you need only release it. There is absolutely no need to go into self-recrimination, negative self-judgment, and blame for the words or actions you engaged in that were unloving. Instead, forgive yourselves, and accept that in that moment, in the moment when you engaged in these words or actions, you were doing what you thought was best – even if almost immediately afterwards you realized that this was not so.

Simon Vandekerckhove – Famously, the Book of Genesis opens with the presumptuous statement that, “In the beginning … God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). This very first line of the Bible has put the Christian faith – or any other faith for that matter – in direct contrast with the scientific worldview, which states that everything is created by chance and that matter is all that exists. Between both irreconcilable ideologies, there lies a world of endless possibilities to explore that may shed a more comprehensive light on the extraordinary nature of our existence.
The materialistic vs. spiritualistic worldview has been a source of much dispute between scientific hardliners and religious fundamentalists. To figure out which of the two is more credible, let’s take a closer look at both positions.
According to scientists, our universe started off with a Big Bang that created all mass, out of which solar systems, planets, humans, etc. came into existence through gradual evolution. That is in all likelihood what happened, but scientists are unable to explain how from the very moment the explosion occurred, certain regularities were established that were indispensable for our planet and, indeed, the whole universe to exist. They are what scientists call the physical constants and they have stayed pretty much the same all over the known universe from the onset of its tumultuous creation.
