Featured Meditations

Before we go to the videos below, I just want to share a struggle I had  some years ago when I really wanted to do at least one good meditation every day to help my spiritual growth.....but I never seemed to have enough discipline to actually sit down every day & meditate.....though I certainly had what seemed at the time to be a lot of good excuses not to.....

And then one day I read a post that had a link to 7 short guided audio meditations....so I thought I'd try the first one at least - and boy was I pleasantly surprised. After the first few minutes I found myself in a relaxed peaceful state of mind having a really great meditation....so of course I wound up meditating with all seven audios during the following days......meditating every day and looking forward to it !

All 7 meditations are simple and easy to follow, and yet powerful and Divinely inspired.....and I feel are beneficial for both beginning meditators as well as people who have been meditating for many years......and they are also free to listen to and download (MP3 audios). Here's the link:http://www.emissariesofthelight.net/meditations.html

I've continued to meditate and enjoy guided meditations that God led me to, and i have recorded quite a few guided meditation videos to help others get into a habit of daily meditation, which I feel is a key practice - meditation - to help everyone in your spiritual growth. You can easily find and enjoy these powerful guided meditations found in my YouTube channel with this link: My Guided Meditation Videos.

The home page for my YouTube channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/devananda1000/feed

Below you will find a few of these guided meditation videos that can get you on your way to some great meditations. Enjoy all of them with Unbounded Blessings of Love & Light,

Steve

Here's a wonderfully uplifting guided video meditation by Susan Shumsky with activations that take you into deep communion with your Divine Self & The Ascended Masters.

Enjoy with Unbounded Blessings of Love & Light, Steve

Partial Transcript:

We are all being lifted right now into the Light of our Divine Self...into the Light of the Creator. Let's all take a big deep breath together of relaxation...of Divine Peace....of Divine Love.

We now know & recognize that there is only one power in the universe and in our lives - the Light of God...the power of The Creator ! The Light of God surrounds & enfolds us...and the Power of God protects us.  And we allow ourselves to merge with this Divine Light now...we now merge with our Divine Self - the Creator within us. There is now separation now between us & God.

We now call forth into our sacred space all of the beautiful Beings of Light helping mankind...the Ascended Masters....the angels & Archangels, the Elohim, the Chohans of the Rays, the energies of the Crystalline Kingdom & the Elemental Kingdom, & the Goddess vibrations. We ask these beautiful beings to lift us to an ascension vibration or better...increasing our vibrations & Light quotient...and purifying all of our bodies in the Violet Flames...lifting us into beautiful ascension vibrations together....

 Partial transcript of "Guided Ascension Meditation" video:

Let yourself tune into and merge with the highest vibrations of the Creator coming through this video to raise your own vibrations and light quotient and help you ascend.

Imagine the light within you shining brightly. Give yourself a moment to inhale deeply, and as you exhale imagine a golden light beam moving from the base of your spine into the earth. As you continue to breathe, feel this deep connection to the earth relax you and provide a strong base within you.

Now, bring your attention to your heart center, the energy field in the middle of your chest. Imagine there is a glowing flame of light burning there. As you breathe in, this flame grows larger and brighter. As you breathe out, the light from this flame begins to fill your body.

Continue to breathe and imagine this light expanding behind your shoulders and down your back, feel it filling every organ and every cell. This is the light of pure spirit, the healing love of God. This light fills you with the Divine presence and radiates from you in waves of love....

Recently Spirit had me create three audio transmissions…

Opening to the New You
Breaking through the Limitation Matrix
The 8.8.8 Lionsgate Transmission
The names of the first two explain their effects.

The third 8.8.8 Lionsgate Transmission will activate power and potential.
The 4th track from Judy is called "Lack of Motherly Love", which I also found to be very healing & uplifting.
The short music track at the end is called "Little Pearl" from Parijit

When you listen to the 8.8.8 Lionsgate Transmission in conjunction with the two previous transmissions so much power and strength will be activated within you. What may have seemed impossible for you to accomplish before will become easy and effortless. This is the time for you to reach for the stars and to hold your “star”, your special gifts, talents and abilities in the palm of your hand for all to see and benefit from.

Previous challenges will fall away. It’s time for all of us to stand tall and be ALL that we are and have the potential to be and become.

When you listen to these transmissions you will change at a very deep level and begin to express more of your true essence.

The audio recordings are a gift from Spirit ... from God …
for everyone on Earth.

You can either listen once or three times at one session for seven consecutive days, or three times at one session for three consecutive days. The energy works like alchemy, which is a complete change of state … like a new energy being imprinted into the fabric of your being.

Judy asks us at different points in this transmission to be repeating to yourself affirmations like the following:

1. I release all limitations causing pain and discomfort in my physical body.
3. I Am in the New. My Soul releases all limitations that do not serve me.

4. I Am in the New. My Soul releases all thought forms and repressed emotions that do not serve me.

5. I Am in the New. My Soul releases everything that is not of God's Divine Joy, Love, & Abundance.

6. I An in the New. My soul releases everything that is not of God's Joy, Love, & Abundance.

7. I Am in the New. My Soul releases everything not of God.

Steven Hutchinson:
I just meditated with all three of Judy's transmissions, three times in a row like Judy recommends...and I can testify that they are extremely powerful & uplifting...so much energy & kundalini was moving through my body that at times I could hardly sit still. What a beautiful divine gift Judy has given us

Enjoy with Infinite Blessings of Love & Light,
Steve

Join us for a beautiful 08/08 Gateway of Light Transmission  as we come together as One Unified Cosmic Heart.

These changes upon us are additionally amplified through the partial Lunar Eclipse of August 7th, asking us to reflect upon the changes we wish to make within our own lives as we trust and surrender to the Divine, brought into Knowing, truth, Love and forgiveness through the 8/8 Lion’s Gateway, and grounded into deeper levels of manifestation, courage, discernment and Divine Will through the Solar Eclipse on August 21st. And so it is.

We start by traveling in our activated Merkabas into the Sirian Living Library within the etheric of Sirius as we align with the Center of the Galaxy. We then merge with our Christed ET Selves, we access the Cosmic Living Library Codes and Universal Akashic Records from the Golden Age timelines of Lemuria, Atlantis and ancient Egypt in particular as these volunteer Souls to Mother Earth and all Life.

As these Golden Age timelines merge into this Golden Age timeline in increased waves of Cosmic Christ Consciousness and Divine Love, this assists us to create and bring about huge changes within our own lives in the knowing of our starseed contracts upon this sacred earth in timelines of Self Mastery.

Anrita Melchizedek is founder of The Melchizedek and Pleiadian Light Network, an ascension network offering numerous programs in the form of eBooks, Mp3’s, as well as vibrational energy products. Anrita is a High Priestess to the Order of Melchizedek, a DNA Blueprinter, author, channel, empath, star ambassador, Light frequency encoder and workshop facilitator. She is a Pleiadian Starseed and further has the gift of speaking in Light Languages. Her self-mastery teachings, Overlighted by the Ascended Masters, Archangels, the Christed ET’s and the Order of Melchizedek, assist us to come into a deeper integration and experience of ourselves as these sacred transfiguring Flames of Divine Love and Master Beings of Light in service to Mother Earth and all her Life. These teachings are presented through You Tube videos, invocations, monthly telewebinars and free downloads, and the channeled transmissions brought through by the Elders, ancient celestial Beings and High Council Members to the Order of Melchizedek.

Partial transcript of Video: "Expanding Your Consciousness While Manifestation Your Soul's Desires - By Steven Hutchinson" - https://youtu.be/3AtaXA7v9e8

Greetings & Namaste everyone...I bow to the Div Presence of the Creator within each of you joining me in this meditation, and I invite each of you to allow Archangel Michael, whom I now call upon, to provide you with invincible protection as you reside in your Sacred Space in which only the Creator's Love & Light can enter. Now, let's close our eyes as and let ourselves be calm & relaxed while sitting in our most comfortable position. Just let our whole being relax now and withdraw your attention from the outside world... and just focus on your breathing. Notice the natural cycle of your breath....breathe deeply, and with every deep in-breath we breathe God's Love & Light into our divine heart...and into our Whole Being. And with every deep out-breath, we let go into God's Peace & joy within our heart. Feel this natural rhythm & cycle of the rise & fall of our breath....and let yourself merge with God's Peace & Joy arising in your heart....and allow your deep rhythmic to bring in God's Energy that is now activating your Kundalini at the base of your spine and clearing and awakening all of our chakras & divine energy points and pathways throughout our whole being.

Each of us are now using this natural Breath of Light & Life to breathe into our Whole Being all of the Rays & Flames & Substance of Light of the Creator that each of us needs for our healing & spiritual upliftment. We are opening now to all that is the Creator within us as we merge with our Beloved I Am Presence, the highest aspect of our Soul Light within the Cosmic Heart of God....and we allow ourself to open now & become aware of the unique Creator Being that we are.

Giving and Expressing the Creator
When you allow yourself to give and share the light, love and creativity of your being which can be expressed in numerous ways such as a smile, sharing your time with another, radiating love into the world and so forth. You begin to understand that, that which you share is returned to you and often magnified in surprising and exciting ways. This encourages you to realise that by focusing with thought upon the way in which you share your light, love and creativity, and then focusing upon that which you wish to receive, you realise that both are the same. You give out that which you wish the Universe of the Creator to return to you. This could be explained in numerus ways, some examples:

If you wish to experience a loving romantic relationship in your life, bless all who are already in a loving romantic relationship, send love and energetic support to assist others in experiencing the same. Help close friends who also wish for the same, and emanate from your being the energy and feeling of already having the loving romantic relationship you desire.

If you wish to increase the volume of prosperity and abundance in your life, bless those who are already experiencing abundance, support others in experiencing the same by sending the energy of abundance to all of humanity radiating through your body. Help close friends in achieving abundance in their life and allow yourself to radiate the feeling of already experiencing what you wish in your reality.

Giving allows you to communicate to the Universe of the Creator what you wish to receive in your own reality. Giving negative and judgmental thoughts to others will mean you receive the same from those you meet in your reality. Sharing positivity, love and kindness means you will experience the same offered to you in wonderful awe inspiring ways. It is often that it is easier to give rather than receive or to receive rather than to give. Meaning that either giving or receiving is prioritised over the other which creates experiences of lack and imbalance. It is often where an experience of lack is present that the answer can be found in the same place. If you are not experiencing what you wish in your reality, allow yourself to contemplate your abilities of receiving and giving, often greater emphasis on one is required and balance between both.

Five Areas of Trust
In order to receive and give the light, love and creative nature of the Creator trust is required. There are five areas of trust that are required to maintain balance within your being, experiences and reality:
Trust in the Creator to support and assist you in magnificent and fulfilling ways.
Trust in yourself and your ability to receive the Creator fully.
Trust in yourself and your ability to express and share the Creator from your inner being.
Trust in your presence and purpose of your existence upon the Earth.
Trust in the divine guidance and intuition which flows through your being.

The Venus Sphere of Knowingness is being made available to you to support your experience of the three main purposes of the Venus second energy phase anchoring into the Earth. The Venus Sphere of Knowingness will support you in accepting and accessing the power of love, recognising the transformation that love can create through action born from love and the full acceptance of the presence of love within your being, reality and all.

The Venus Sphere of Knowingness is a dimension of accelerated enlightenment born from the presence of love. It allows illusions to be cast aside and truth to emerge from foundations of love, with the purpose of creating the love of the Creator.

To access the Venus Sphere of Knowingness is simple:

  1. Focus on receiving the second phase of energy transmission from the Venus civilisation. Imagine the Venus light of a pink and turquoise colour flowing over and through your being. Breath the Venus light into your being noticing that you are being filled with love.
  2. Invite your soul to awaken purer vibrations of love, transmitting these into your higher heart chakra and heart chakra. Feel, sense and acknowledge the presence of your soul and love within your higher heart chakra and heart chakra, overflowing into your entire being.
  3. Recognise yourself as a shimmering beacon of powerful love vibrations which are emanating from your being.
  4. Say out loud, ‘Venus Beings, I am now ready to be aligned with the Venus Sphere of Knowingness, please harmonise my entire being with this dimension of pure love, enlightenment and knowingness.’ Recognise any new vibrations, energies, colours of light flowing over and through your being. The Venus Sphere of Knowingness may emerge from within your higher heart chakra, expanding to surround you completely, as if you are encapsulated in a sphere of Venus love and enlightenment.
  5. Take time to simply exist in the energies. Observe your entire being recognising any shifts, insights or knowingness that dawns. That which you receive may be able to be recognised with your conscious mind, if not, then simply trust that you have received all that is needed and the knowingness will become apparent with divine timing.
  6. When you are ready, send energy from your higher heart through your body into your Earth Star Chakra below your feet to ground all the information, wisdom, understanding and enlightenment you have received, whether you are consciously aware of it or not.

We are sitting in the garden of Istvan's Surya Sangita Ashram, in the shade of an old walnut tree. All around us peace and quiet. Then he takes his guitar and breaks the silence with song. "Everything is singing. Every blade of grass, the flowers and this old walnut tree, too. Beautiful, old songs to bless the place ", he sings. "Here we sit under it, and I feel that it's incessantly chanting. Still, motionless. I'm sitting here and I'm flying with it. I'm singing its song, hugging its waist, over an infinite time. Its green foliage adorns the sky. Each flower is smiling."
How did you find your voice?

"If you sing from the heart, you can connect to the beautiful cosmic world, where there is no past and no future. Only the blessed present exists there. We do not judge anything or anybody, we're just existing in this beautiful flow, between heaven and earth. If you sing, you're in wholeness, in the blessed palms of God, in the flowers' field, smiling at the heart, and all difficulties evaporate. The soul is happy and the spirit expands. The constraints, which were built by the mind, crumble in an instant. You're free again, like a bird. You are alive and creating again. You take part in the divine creation and in the magic that is honest and pure. You don't want to control or change it, just let it lead and teach you."
So it's like a deep meditation?
"You make magic when you sing. Especially if you sing while deeply engrossed, which brings you into the joy of the moment. If you sing every day, the channel that connects you with nature opens. All your feelings of pain and emotional suffering disappear. You are renewed. The chant cleans and opens all seven of your energy centers. You live happily in the temple of the body, in this holy place again."
How does the singing cure?
"All your cells are glad and happy when you sing. You don't talk and think then. Every chant is in the present, and present is the moment of the divine wholeness. Many people start to cry at my concerts. They cry because poisons, problems, pain and hardness disappear from your body this way, and sensitivity, kindness, beauty, loving reception and harmony re-seats there. You don't have to defend yourself and be afraid of anyone in this state, you only exist in this timeless state, like a flower, which stretches up to the light, happy in the rain, the dew, the wind."

What do you teach to anyone who goes to the Surya Sangita Ashram?
"First of all, I urge you to cast off your fears. Leave at home the kind of defense, constant control, and fear with which you have traveled so far. Arrive at the site, among the flowers and caress them. Just sit in the grass and feel this divine state. Arrive into the sanctuary. Then I ask you to forgive yourself and others. Step inside the shrine and meditate. Listen to the sound of cosmic creation, return to the womb. Be reborn without pain, sadness or any kind of compliance. Just listen, be the witness, the observer. Do not judge, just listen, flow with the nature, wave with the wind. Just be in the moment, just be. Become who you are. Then start singing the sounds of the chakras. Because the chakras have not only colors, they have voices too."
 Then, with great respect and love, I thank God for such a great gift that these songs could find a place in my heart."

(The meditation starts about 20 & 1/2 minutes into the video when the music starts - but Annette's music is much louder - so be prepared to turn down the volume if needed.)
Annete,
"Namaste & welcome everyone. We are going to do a Oneness meditation, which is an energy transfer that helps you connect with your Divine Self - the real You. Your Divine Self is the Divine Intelligence of the Heart, the Consciousness, the God Force within you continually spiraling & seeking to awaken within you.

The Oneness meditation helps your awakening to your Divine Self, that Higher Consciousness within you. But how you experience your Divine Self is completely up to you. Its up to you what kind of relationship you want to have with your Divine Self, for it is unique to each person & separate from any religion or philosophy.

Awakening to your Divine Self is a process of the mind, but a process in which Divine Intervention is needed to help you ultimately transcend the mind to begin experiencing your Self.

The Divine Intervention is pure Divine Grace working inside of you - your connection between you & God. This is the Divine Energy flowing in the Oneness meditation & Deeksha - a Divine Energy which has the keys and Divine Intelligence to unlock your heart.

So whatever you are experiencing in this meditation, just relax & lovingly be with what you are experiencing. Your meditation can change from moment to moment - but the whole process is one of Divine Love working in you.

The Oneness Awakening Deeksha helps you connect with your Divine Self inside your heart. The Deeksha starts as soon as the music begins, so close your eyes....and the Oneness Meditation starts as soon as the music changes & continues for the remainder of this Divine transmission (this is where you look into Annett's eyes.

The music in both the Deeksha & Oneness meditation have that Divine Energy embedded in them that will be helping you Awaken...helping you release everything that's blocking your experience of your Divine Self....and is also helping you experience your Divine Self more & more fully."

Blessings of Love & Light & Awakening to all,
Steve

A Beautiful Heart

One grandfather quipped about his grandchildren . . . 'My grandkids are four and six. The Pulitzer Prize winner is four and the brain surgeon is six.'

Parents and grandparents are understandably proud of the quick minds and impressive talents of their little ones. But let me tell you about another quality, perhaps even more important. A grandmother wrote to me and told me this story about her four year old granddaughter Skylar.

It was Christmas time. Skylar had saved coins in a piggy bank all year and decided to buy presents for her family with her savings. But she also learned from announcements on television about a local homeless shelter called 'The Road House.' She repeatedly asked her mother what 'homeless' meant and why those children needed coats and warm clothes. The concept of people in such physical need deeply affected her.

Skylar's mother took her to the store to buy Christmas presents. But instead of buying for herself or her family, she decided to use her savings for somebody at the shelter. They learned that there was a little girl staying there about Skylar's age, and she purchased a warm coat, socks, gloves and crayons for the child. She also wanted to buy her a doll (a 'baby,' as she called it), but when she discovered she didn't have enough money, she left the doll behind. When Skylar got home, she selected one of her own much-loved dolls to give away. The baby went into a box with the other items.

She could hardly wait for Christmas. Skylar was not thinking about Santa Claus or any presents she might be getting. She was thinking only about going to the shelter and giving her carefully selected gifts to a little girl she had never met.

On Christmas Eve she and her family finally made the trip Skylar had been anticipating for so long. They drove to the shelter. There she presented her Christmas box to a grateful child. She was so filled with joy at truly touching someone else's life that her family decided to make the journey to the shelter an annual tradition.

'Perhaps it's good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to have a beautiful heart,' says Nobel Laureate John Nash ('A Beautiful Mind'). He would have appreciated young Skylar's heart.

Beautiful hearts don't just happen. Nash calls it a gift, but it’s a gift in the way that faith or hope or love are gifts. And I’m convinced we have each been endowed with a beautiful heart. We may not always see it. We may not even believe it. But it's a gift that came with birth and, every time we act selflessly, it grows a little.
