Connecting To Your Enlightened State By Shanta Gabriel & Archangel Gabriel
Shanta's Message .....
The message from Archangel Gabriel this week reminds us that we have within us a more enlightened state of mind that is available to us when we slow down and align ourselves with the Source.
The Gabriel Message Card for this Week
When you connect deeply within to your enlightened state of mind, there is an expanded perception of the world and any question can be answered.
People seem to be filled with questions nowadays as life has taken momentous turns that may not only be unexpected, but unprecedented.
There seems to be an ongoing need for not just clarity, but an enlightened perspective to gain greater understanding and help put our minds at ease. From within our busy lives, this ability seems fleeting at best, and sometimes hopeless.
For me, there is no way I can receive the answers I am seeking from an outside world that is changing so quickly. I have to purposefully take the time and make space to slow down, breathe more deeply, so I can consciously create prayerful alignment with the Divine Source of Infinite Intelligence. I need this expansive connected energy to open my mind and heart for new awareness.
Because scientists at Heartmath.org have found that our heart sends intelligence to our brain, I have found that placing my hand on my heart brings me back into integrity with myself very quickly. Deep breaths into my heart allow me to open up to a more expanded way of thinking. Prayers to receive guidance and wisdom bring a new opening to my mind. Then I need to give myself time to align with the Highest Source of Light to create a bridge from Heaven to Earth within my being.
If I am sensitive to my energy field, I notice that when I take the time for this connecting process, there seems to be a more expansive Light field around me. Indeed, I feel much lighter, perhaps even more enlightened. From this place of expansiveness, my questions will either be answered or dissipate in the greater awareness this opening provides.
Most of us use worry as a part of our planning process for life. I have spent hours and sometimes days worrying about an outcome that is clearly unknown. How much more resourceful it is for me to spend even half that time with a receptive heart. Slowing down seems especially difficult when my life feels as though it is speeding up, yet that is what is required to create deeper attunement with the most eternal, divine and enlightened aspect of my being.
May I seek your guidance first before I allow fear to take over my mind. Help me to remember to slow down, take deeper breaths, and offer to you all that weighs me down.
As I call forth the Light from the Highest Source there is, I invite this Light to fill my mind and heart, bringing me a deeper connection to Divine Wisdom and Guidance. May I allow Creative Solutions to abound and lighten up all areas of my life right now.
I am grateful that I am gaining more Faith and the inner knowing that all my needs are met with Grace and Ease. Thank you for bringing me the answers I need to live in Harmony and Peace. And so it is.
You have within you an enlightened state of mind where Truth prevails and Divine Love empowers you, filling all the dark places. Give yourself the gift of finding this place, and become so familiar with it that you are able to connect there with a breath and a thought.
This enlightened state within you is beyond normal waking-consciousness and can even be called a super consciousness. It is an expanded place of Light, Peace and all Wisdom. It is possible through prayer and meditation to connect deeply with this beautiful, enlightened state within your mind.
It only takes a few minutes to sit quietly and breathe in Light and Love. When you do this and ask for guidance, you provide a fertile ground that can be planted with seeds of Joy, Peace and Divine Order in every area of your life. When you bring a question with you into your expansive, enlightened mind, the answer will become obvious. Even if it does not seem to be clear when you are sitting in your meditation place, it may pop into your mind as you go through your day ~ especially if your intention to know the truth is strong.
Every day you can give yourself this gift and create a personal relationship with the enlightened state within you. From this place, the Divine Mind is accessible and the Angels will inspire you. A feeling of Peace in your heart will be the result. In this enlightened state of mind, you are filled with Divine Light and know truly that all is well.
Remember your message from Archangel Gabriel for today:
When you connect deeply within to your enlightened state of mind, there is an expanded perception of the world you inhabit and any question can be answered.
Be Your Unique Self & Banish Unworthiness By Ann Albers & The Angels
Message From The Angels
My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Each cell in the human body, dear ones, has meaning, purpose, and value.Without it, you would not be who you are. You cannot discount a cell simply because it is so tiny in comparison to the body, and the Divine cannot discount you because you feel so small by "comparison" to the vast reaches of the cosmos.
Just as each cell matters, each soul matters. Just as each cell is unique, precious, and valuable to the overall well-being of the body,each soulis unique, precious, and valuable to the overall well-being of the One.
You all serve a purpose. You are all adding to the awareness of what Love can collectively become. Just by being your unique, precious self, you matter.How could you ever imagine yourself inadequate or unworthy of love?
We know the answer, of course.You've been programmed to think you must be something, do something, or serve some external purpose to be worthy of love.Nothing could be farther from truth. You are loved, beloved, treasured, and cherished. You are loved unconditionally.You are love.
Inadequacy and unworthiness only exists as concepts in fearful and lower vibrations.They exist in the vibrations of those who were afraid and who taught you to be afraid.
They exist in the vibrations of those who didn't know God loved them unconditionally and were afraid that you wouldn't be loved if you didn't live up to the "rules" and "conditions" that were placed upon them, and therefore upon you.
Unworthiness is a lie.
Inadequacy is a lie.
You are all worthy of love. Is a wave "worthy" of the ocean? The question does not even make sense when the waves knows that it is the ocean.Can the wave "fail" the ocean? That too doesn't make sense when the wave knows it IS one with the ocean.
So too, the notion of you being "unworthy" or "inadequate" makes no sense at allwhen you realize you are ONE with the love that gives rise to universes.You are Love.
Dear Divine Source, help me feel your love rising up within me. Help me know myself as a precious, perfect, and unique embodiment of the only LOVE there is. Help me see your love in my eyes, feel your love in my heart, and most of all, help me know Your Love as the essence of my very being.
Then, when you catch yourself thinking or saying, "I am not enough. I made a mistake. I failed. I am unworthy. I am inadequate," talk back to those voices:
Be Gone! You are lies! I am ONE with the POWER that creates Universes! I am ONE with the LOVE that sustains LIFE. I am ONE with all and I am simply growing into a greater awareness of truth! Be gone unworthiness! Be gone inadequacy. You have no permission to be in my mind, heart, body, and soul.
I AM ONE WITH THE LOVE THAT LIVES IN ALL THINGS.
Make up your own version of this affirmation. Put it where you can see it. Repeat it often. See if you can feel it.
Dear ones, there is no such thing as unworthiness, inadequacy, failure in the eyes of God or your angels. These are seen for what they are – illusions of separation – in the higher levels of awareness.
Unworthiness and inadequacy are like the "monsters under the bed" that haunted you in kindergarten, but are no longer scary now thatyou see them for the illusions that they really are.
Just as you give up certain kindergarten notions as you evolve into higher levels of education,you will eventually realize that feelings of unworthiness or inadequacy have no more place in your heart, your mind, or your lives.And then dear ones, you will allow the love of the Divine to flow freely and unobstructed into your lives.
God Bless You! We love you so very much. -- The Angels
In my twenties, I went to a very harsh seminar. I hated it.I was ornery, upset, and didn't know why I was there. I challenged the instructor. She nailed me in front of the whole room. She told me "I never felt good enough. I wasn't at peace with my humanity. I had to try to be perfect all the time." I felt like she punched me in the gut, and perhaps, energetically she did, with a truth so awful, I didn't want to hear it.
It changed my life.
I saw the pattern everywhere.I was as "People Pleaser." I apologized for everything. I morphed to make people feel comfortable. I anticipated people's needs and tried to fulfill them. My relationships were all based on wanting others to make me feel good enough. I was in a job I didn't love because it made me feel good enough. The list of behaviors all centered around not feeling good enough and trying to prove I really was went on and on.
It was a pretty tough realization to discover that I wasn't living my life. I was living a "not good enough" person's life, masked as the life of a person who had it all together. Oh, I did have it together. It just wasn't MY life.
I started to make myself identify more with the light that lived within me. This Divine light is always "good enough" - in fact it just IS. On days when I didn't look or feel my best, I'd go to the mirror and pray, "Let me SEE me through Your Eyes, dear God. Let me know the truth and beauty that you find way deep inside..." I wrote a song to that effect for friends. I sang it often.
Slowly but surely I started to see myself as a soul having an experience, learning and growing into an awareness about who I really was. Mystical experiences helped, but more so the discipline of catching myself trying to pretend I wasn't good enough, smart enough, doing enough... and when I caught myself to say, "Stop it! You are criticizing the Divine in human form! No more. Dear God, let me see me through your eyes..."
Unworthiness is a parasite in the human psyche. People who didn't feel worthy brainwashed us into feeling we are not. Unworthiness drives us into unhealthy relationships. Unworthiness blocks abundance. Unworthiness manifests in health issues because we don't feel OK having or expressing feelings.
The good news is that collectively, humanity is awakening to a greater reality.Intellectually, we know we are One. Intellectually, we may know we are worthy. We're just working hard to bring that truth into our reality... and when you do everything starts to shift...
I dug out a lot of fears and past life feelings of unworthiness with the recent infection (which is healed!) and my life is now flowing once again with magic, miracles, and amazing grace!
Here are some pointers to start embracing the feelings of worthiness:
1. From this day forward assume and affirm you are WORTHY of LOVE; that you ARE ENOUGH
IF you have to put signs up around your whole house, in your wallet, everywhere that say something simple...
"I am worthy of love. I am always enough. I am Love. The LOVE that creates universes lives is having an experience through ME."
2. Treat God Well
If you really, really knew the presence of the Divine lived in you and as you, how would you treat God on a daily basis?
The Divine feels everything through us, the same way we feel our entire body. If our finger hurts, we want it to heal and feel good. What if your finger said, "I don't matter. I'm unworthy. Don't take care of me," and because you allowed it free will, you had to suffer with it, and through it? Now you understand God's love which allows us to choose. Do we ask for help? Do we believe we are worthy of it.
Be that part that knows the WHOLE wants to feel better - by asking for help. Assume, like a cell in the body, that when you send a message for help it will come in the best way, in the best time. Treat the Divine well by treating yourself well. Even Christ said, "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers (and I'd add to yourself!) you do unto me."
3.Find ways to start treating yourself "as if" you are worthy of love and all good
If you felt worthy of all good, how would you act? Would you be defensive, or simply remain silent and not dignity unkind behaviors or alternately share a loving and calmly powerful response? Would you eat better or treat your body in a better and kinder way? Would you ever criticize yourself again or would you sweet talk yourself every day?
Try at least one new behavior this week that says you are worthy of your own love.
While there is never a guarantee that other human beings will make us feel worthy of love, we can choose to align our thoughts and behaviors with a deeper truth- we are, always and forever, worthy of love. We can learn to turn away from behaviors that aren't loving, while at the same time turning daily towards the behaviors that are. We can be the ones who decide we are, and always have been worthy!
Love you all! Ann

The Universe Is One Harmonious Whole By Christopher Chase
Experiencing the Symphony of our Living Universe
I like to experience the universe as one harmonious whole. Every cell has life. Matter, too, has life; it is energy solidified. The tree outside is life… The whole of nature is life… The basic laws of the universe are simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them. There is a pattern in creation. – Albert Einstein
Look around and you may have noticed that everything in our Universe is involved in some form of organized creative activity–moving, evolving and changing all the time. It’s a Cosmic Dance that’s been going on since the Big Bang, when energy became matter, and clouds of interstellar gas first gave birth to galaxies of stars.
Billions of years ago (within the arms of our galaxy) a super nova exploded–seeding this region with the basic elements that formed our solar system. This beautiful planet we inhabit began as a molten rock circling our star, the land slowly cooling and hardening, allowing rain to fall, water to gather and flow, forming oceans, lakes, rivers and streams.
Forming our solar system.
Life soon arose in the oceans. Small cells became amoebas, then plants, fish, insects, trees, animals. Conscious sentient beings walking, flying and swimming, mating and fighting, aware and alive.
That is how we got here, that is who we are. Children of the Universe, Living expressions of the Cosmic Dance of Creation.
The Creative Patterns of Life
You have probably noticed that there are patterns everywhere that repeat. The spherical shape of the sun, earth and moon. The swirling golden ratio pattern of hurricanes, snail shells and galaxies.
There are also common creative processes that happen all around (and within) us. Every life form travels a similar path, beginning as sperm and egg—cells multiplying and self-organizing, forming our heart, legs, lungs, eyes, ears, muscles, brains and bones.
In a very real way, we are each active participants, localized expressions of universal creativity.
Spherical patterns swirling.
Who Built You?
Think about it, who built your body (guided by the DNA of your parents), grew every inch of it, self-constructed your physical form, from scratch?
And you’ve maintained the growth and existence of your physical form for decades now, taking in new materials from the world every single day, transforming water, protein, calcium, oxygen, and other materials to maintain the complex living structure of your body.
Building your body from new materials every day.
As Alan Watts and Eckhart Tolle have pointed out, ‘you’ are not just a person, you are a conscious expression of the Earth, of the stars, of Nature’s evolution and all of cosmic history. We are shape-shifters, temporary arisings of awareness and form, unique waves of life in the Cosmic ocean.
Every living being is a creative self-constructing system, an expression of the interdependent web of Life on earth, a part of the harmonious symphony that’s being sung by our Universe.
Like all of Nature’s systems, we are built up from (and embedded within) complex networks of systems. Our atoms form molecules, which form cells that work together to form the body’s systems and our individual expression as a human being.
We are built up from a complex network of systems.
We are also a part of family systems, social systems, communities embeded in cities and ecosystems, forming planetary systems, solar systems, spinning in the arms of a galactic system. All constantly transforming and interdependently connected, dissolving apart and reforming, evolving and creating new forms.
This is happening everywhere on our planet, within (and all around) each of us, the Universe alive and dancing on this beautiful gem of a world, as Nature, as mountains, rivers, birds, people, dolphins, flowers and trees.
As sentient beings we are capable of experiencing the beauty and miracle of life here. Children growing, learning and playing together, insects buzzing in fields of flowers, musicians jamming, lovers loving, monks chanting…
Alive and dancing.
Participating in the Dance of Life
Our minds and hearts teaming up together, creating families and cultures, constructing cities and technologies, giving birth to new ideas, art, science, spiritual insights, music and poetry…
Until the day we die, when it ends for each of us–as a temporary localized expression of Universal Creativity and Awareness–when our atoms start to drop back, returning to the very Earth that had brought us into being.
Until then we have a chance to participate in the Dance, to add a verse or two to the Cosmic chorus. To be grateful, loving and happy. To experience a lifetime here, as one of countless points of creative awareness and expression.
