    Taking Time for Blessings By Shanta Gabriel

    We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.

    This message from Archangel Gabriel invites us to expand our abilities to create greater possibilities for living in empowered states of consciousness.

    The Gabriel Message Card for this Week

    Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want.

    Shanta Gabriel:

    To bless means to confer energy on whatever person or situation you are focused upon. It is a wonderful way to bring Divinity into our daily lives, and this practice honors the Oneness within us at all times. And even if the reality of where we are is not what we like, it is important to bring conscious awareness to the place of "what is" so that we can expand our perceptions to what is possible.

    It is important to recognize and honor what is truly manifesting in our lives. It is a recognition and gratitude for the abundance that is there for us to notice when we focus our attention. Without that level of honoring what we have already in our lives and being grateful, we are not in a place of magnetism for what we want to experience.

    For many years I seemed to be waiting for something else to change before I could be happy. I kept thinking that soon I would have the situation in my work I had been wanting, or the people I lived with would finally change and then all would be harmonious. This led me to living in the future, out of balance and out of touch with my present life. It was not a resourceful state for me to be in, and when the life I was leading went through a very radical change, I was not prepared to lose everything I thought was important to me. It could be called involuntary simplification, but the Universe will use anything it can to get our attention.

    Sitting in that place of emptiness, I had to examine my core values, becoming more clear about what was truly important to me. I found a new level of compassion and love for who I was at the core of my being. I recognized that my spiritual base did not change and that in all the ways that truly mattered, I was not lost, no matter how it felt. I learned the lesson that my Soul was valiantly trying to teach me — that loving myself and honoring the present time was essential. I soon found that the more authentically me I became, the happier I was.

    The spiritual principles that taught me about what I truly needed to feel whole were still within me, active and well. I discovered that even though it appeared that I had lost everything, I was actually living in a resourceful state that allowed me to follow my heart and pay attention to my inner guidance system. All of this I could bless with my full attention and be very grateful.

    When we ask for something, we are honoring the Divine Presence and letting the Universe know what we need. It creates an opening to the Divine River of All Creation; the sacred flow of Divinity that is always available for us. When we can match the vibration of our desires, we become a magnet for their manifestation by the Law of Attraction.

    Giving thanks in advance allows us to strengthen and raise our vibrational frequency. This helps us to radiate the beautiful energy of gratitude into our world. The benevolence of God responds to this beauty and will flow to us what we are asking for if we can continue to sustain and strengthen our focus.

    The focus of our attention is the attracting force for the flow of the Divine. If we continue to complain about what we don't have, it creates a powerful focus on what is not working. The result is we will receive more of what we don't want from the same Benevolent Force that provides what we are focused on at all times. That is why the energy of blessing is so powerful. Even if we really don't know what lesson we are receiving from a less than happy situation, we can still offer our blessings so it can provide a catalyst for the change we do want.

    Through this focus on the spiritual base of our reality, we become very resilient and open to new levels of support from the Universal Presence who cares for us eternally. All that we need is provided then with more Grace and Ease, and we know in the core of our being that we are truly loved.

    Divine Presence,

    Thank you for the life I have been given and for the lessons I am learning on all levels. Please bless all my relationships and all the situations in my life with Love and Divine Order.

    May my consciousness be blessed with Divine Light and brought to a frequency that is in harmony with that which I truly desire to receive in my life. I am open to receive the Grace that is here for me now. Thank you, God. And so it is.

    The Gabriel Messages Book #55

    Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want.

    Dear One,

    You may be finding yourself in a time of questioning and dissatisfaction with your life. However, this is also a time of great opportunity. Every moment of your conscious awareness creates the qualities of your future moments. You can ask for those qualities you feel are missing from your life now, and they will come to you from your sincere prayer.

    It is not about asking for material things. Instead, ask for those qualities of consciousness you believe you would have if you had the things you want. For example, if you want a new job, what qualities would this job give you? Abundant income? Harmonious atmosphere with co-workers? Fulfillment and joy doing that which you love? Perhaps ease in transportation?

    When you know the qualities you want, this allows the Universe to provide these qualities in a work situation that may be even better than the type of work you were looking for. When you ask for a narrowly defined work environment, you may get exactly what you ask for but the qualities that would make you happy may not be present.


    It’s important not to limit the response of the Universe to the confines of your present awareness. But if you do choose to be precise, also say, “this or something better, God” and then let go. You can also give thanks in advance for answered prayers by saying, “Thank you, Divine Presence, for meeting my needs in ways better than I can imagine. Thank you for Divine Order in this situation.”

    Blessing situations also brings more good to you. Even if your world appears to be falling apart around you, you can bless the changes occurring and know there is Divine Order beneath the illusion of disharmony.

    Though it may not appear that you have much you can bless, you can bless the gift of another day of life. You can bless the learning experiences you are now receiving, knowing they are bringing you to a greater good. You can bless the people in your life. Know that they are your perfect teachers for what you need to learn at this time.

    Remember to give more attention to what you want than to what you don’t have. It seems a small distinction, but power is given to whatever you focus your energy upon. If what you are experiencing is not what you want, bless it anyway. But do not dwell there. Shift your focus to ask for whatever good you want — greater happiness, joy-filled relationships, abundant income, satisfying work. Then say, “Thank you, God” and release your prayers to the Universe to be fulfilled. Whenever you think of it, bless your life, say thank you for what you have and want, then let Divine Will take over.

    You deserve to be happy and have miracles in your life. A prayerful attitude of blessing and gratitude can bring to you all the good life has to offer. You are worthy to receive the grace of God. All who ask sincerely are answered in kind.

    Remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today is:

    Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want.

    Kiss the Earth

    Heavenletter #5918 Published on: February 6, 2017

    God said:

    I am your dear God. That’s it! What did you think I was? Did you really think that I am a despot who delights in making you dance through hoops?

    In one sense, there is only one choice I give you, and that is the choice to grow. Willingly or unwillingly, you will grow, and you will grow higher and higher like Iowa corn. You will grow even higher than Jack and the Beanstalk. Not even the sky is the limit. There is no limit to the heights you can climb. There simply are no limits. In other words, you are limitless.

    This is a wonderful thing, yet you fear it. You may protest the ground that you walk on, yet you don't want to let go of it. What do you think I would say to you?

    I say to you: Kiss the Earth beneath your feet and kiss the Unlimitedness of your rising higher and higher. You will not have to stand upon your tiptoes. You will get off the ground and fly. You will fly. Do you know the happiness this is?

    Has not everyone had dreams of flying?

    Dreams come true. You will soar. You will fly beyond your wildest dreams, and dream anew yet Great Dreams, and they will also come true.

    I have heard you say: "There has to be more to Life than this."

    How right you are. Shakespeare penned it: "There are more things in Heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

    Yet you have dreamt them all in your psychology.

    It has been said that I have wonders to perform. True. And so do you. Think of how it will be when you reveal your True Self to yourself. This is not a wonder, for it is natural, yet it will be wonderful and magnificent. It will be true.

    You are going to step out. You are going to take a leap. You will find yourselves dancing in the streets. You will find yourselves dancing in the sky. You will find yourselves dancing in all hearts, for where I am are you.

    I do not stand alone in a High Tower. Never am I alone. Never is there a time when anyone is alone. There are trillions of possibilities -- correction – endless possibilities -- Infinite possibilities. To be alone in the Universe is an impossibility. Nevertheless, you have experienced a woeful sense of being alone.

    Dear Ones, each of you desires to rejoin consciously with your Self, which is to say with Me. There is nothing hard about it, for Oneness is natural.

    It is natural for you to hear Me. Therefore, it is easy for you to hear Me. You will find yourself hearing Me as naturally as you feel the Sun on your face. You will feel My Presence. Feel it now.

    You are here with Me now, and I am here with you. We are all here together. We are here together as One.

    There is nothing in the world or in Heaven but Oneness.

    I am your prerogative. You are entitled to Me. Come closer to Me, even as there is no closer. There is nothing closer than Oneness. In Oneness, We are One. Separateness is a fantasy that many have held onto as if for dear Life.

    What is your reasoning? No matter. Jump in! Get wet. The water is fine.

    The fact is that We do swim in the Water of Life as One. Close your eyes all you want – it is still true. There is no departure from Truth, and why would you want to run away from such a Truth as this that I give to you?

    We Are Beautiful Beings of Love By Kara Schallock

    Kara Schallock


    We are being bathed by beautiful energies of Love. This Love energy brings with it an upgrade to our Unity consciousness. As you know, Unity consciousness is Oneness. Oneness is the knowing (Heart-knowing) that all of us...human, animal, plant, insect and beyond Earth, etc...are connected by Love. If a person is not in their Integrity (the Truth of their Heart), they may speak, act and think divisively. Still, we are connected as One.

    After I had been meditating for about five years, I was asked to offer a class to teach meditation. After resisting, thinking I had not meditated long enough to teach it, I agreed to the class. I would meditate before the class and ask my guides what to share.

    One time I called them to me and they came and then turned and walked away. I yelled (in my meditation), “Come back!” My head guide, a being who looked ancient and who carried a staff, returned and said, “You do not need us; you have become dependent on us; you are to work directly with your own Higher Self.” That was long ago and I do call on my initial guides to say hi once in a while. I share this story so that you understand that it is most important to work directly with your Higher Self/Soul, for we are sovereign beings.

    When you meditate, you allow the energies to infuse you with Love. It is much easier to flow freely when in the state of meditation. When you are dependent on something outside of yourself, like someone offering you an activation, a psychic reading or have a dependency on guides or angels, it is more difficult for the energies to flow freely. When you meditate, you open and strengthen your Heart. When you don't meditate, your mind is engaged which sets up resistance. You are a sovereign being.

    Meditation is not going somewhere else; it is staying in your body, grounded and allowing the energies to flow into and through you. Meditation is not an escape; it is becoming more you. When I first learned to meditate, it was great fun. I flew around and had wonderful adventures. When I was guided to stay in my body, it was not as much fun, yet I could feel the changes within me. Much has shifted through the years, as no two meditations are the same; just as we are different from yesterday, for we shift moment to moment.

    Meditation is not separate from your everyday life. As you meditate, you change things in your life. You live purposefully. Your choices reflect your spiritual growth. All you do is conscious and based on how you resonate with a person, action and everything. You do not do something just because someone tells you to. You feel it and if it resonates, you make the choice to do a certain thing. If it does not feel right (it doesn't resonate), you don't go in that direction. Resonance isn't a thought process; it is felt within your Heart. Meditation helps to make this strong.

    How you see others and the world is indicative of what you hold within yourself. If you see the world broken, something within is broken. If you see the world as dangerous, you hold much fear within. When you see the world as whole, loving and safe, that is who you are. When you complain, you actually can trace it back to something within you that you don't like and probably are in denial about. It has become easier to blame or complain about others than it is to take Responsibility for your own deeper self.

    If your environment is rife with duality, your view will probably be more dualistic than not. If your friends and family are of the old, you might very well take on their energy, rather than have them rise to match yours. This is why it is important for you to be aware of your actions, thoughts and emotions and make changes if you are guided to.

    Go where you resonate and if that is spending time by yourself, then do so. There is an old belief that says it is “bad” not to spend time with others. This is not true in the New. Be where you are loved and supported, for this where you resonate. Follow your own energy; not that of others. Be still and then you will know where you belong and where you do not. When you resonate with someone or some place, it raises your vibration. When you are in lower vibrations, your vibration lowers. When your vibration is high, you resonate with others that vibrate as you do.

    Whatever distracts you from your Divinity may be looked at and if you go beneath the surface, you may discover an old belief that is not Love or of the New. These are the things to let go of so that you may fill up with more Love. Hence, if you keep attracting the same scenario or notice an old pattern continuously repeating, see what it is you are holding onto. It is meant for us to be Joy and Peace and Love. Many disagree, saying it is O.K. to have emotions such as depression, anger and other lower energies. It is if you understand that there is a belief that is creating them. Is it O.K. for you to feel Joy, Peace and Love? Do you feel worthy to experience these?

    Being in Nature is wonderful for you. There is so much to learn from Nature. There is no judgment; no duality; all flows. When in Nature, your vibration lifts high; you feel Love and loved. The Elementals and Fae fill you with all Love. Do you know that every plant has its own deva? Nature automatically knows when to grow and when to be still. It is no wonder we strive to be natural. Being natural is being centered in Love and grounded in Truth.

    When we are centered and grounded in our Divinity, we serve as channels of the high dimensional Light. This is Divine Service without labeling it. Our Presence is more than enough, as long as we keep our consciousness and vibration high without the distractions of the old. Some will be guided to share their Light in a more structured way. It matters not how you share; as long as you realize that it is your consciousness that you share and not necessarily a plethora of techniques, for techniques are of the intellect. However, in your sharing, perhaps you will be guided as to how to share your Light/Love. Basically, it is not technique that helps; it is the Love you share. 

    You feel it; you see is new. So much has shifted and will continue to shift. Stay out of judgment, for the changes you experience may not be what you expected. There is still a disintegration of the old, so instead of bemoaning what looks like a very old way of being, stay focused on living your life as purposefully as possible. Trust that all is unfolding in Divine Order.

    You may experience a return of initial ascension manifestations, especially in your physical body, for we continue to calibrate the higher energies. It may look as though things are going backward; they are not (nothing goes backward).  It is a clearing of what did not transform earlier. It may seem as though duality is stronger and yet, this is actually a wake-up call to the masses to stop closing their eyes to what is occurring within them and around them.

    Being conscious is not an easy task when one has been dozing. What has been hidden, whether within or in the world, is being revealed. This includes all that is not Love and all divisiveness, as well as all the Beauty and miracles. No-one will be able to stay in denial. So, we who have done our work and have stay centered in our light, serve as wayshowers for the general population, who may complain and blame, yet they cannot deny that they and the world are changing.

    This is the beginning. Be congruent with Love. Flow on the wave of Grace. Be thankful for who you are. As you keep your vibration high, you hold the space for others who are awaking. Let your stories of the past go. Be in the Moment only. Be Love, be Honesty, be Integrity, be Joy and be Peace. Stay out of drama and be still. Listen without judgment and feel the Truth. Have all your thoughts, feelings and actions be of Love. Be the Compassionate Observer and be evermore patient with yourself and others.

    As higher beings, which we are, we must not interfere with others' choices, for all have free will. We teach and heal/whole by being true to ourselves and shining our Light no matter where we are or who we are with. Namaste.
