Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers:

Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers: "Sanaya (pronounced "sah-NIGH-ah") has told us that she is a collective consciousness of minds with both a feminine and masculine energy. This energy comes from a higher dimension than our own. When I bring through Sanaya's words, I am "tapping in" to Higher Consciousness. I am allowing that Consciousness to express itself through my body: through my brain, through my vocal cords, my arms, my hands, and also through my pen. Sanaya would not need a name, except for our human need to put labels on things and place our experiences into well-defined boxes. Sanaya takes us outside the box into a dimension where we come face to face with our higher selves. To hear the words of Sanaya as they come through ... to sit in the presence of that energy ... is a palpable experience of higher vibration ... of love. To read Sanaya's words can have the same result when you tune in to that finer energy as you read."

Always the Answer

Compassion is always the answer, for it is born of love.  When you do not know how to respond in the face of very human reactions, whether of another or even yourself, turn on the compassion.  Compassion does not say, “I agree with your actions.”  It does not say, “I like what you say.”  Compassion says, “I know that we as humans are often less than loving, but inside each of us is a place where we are equals.  From that place of pure spirit, I connect with you and send you love.”  That is compassion.

Revealed

The real you is concealed behind a costume.  You call it a body.  The real you will not disappear when the body lives no more, for the real you is eternal.  You exist to grow in this realization, but the real you has always known this.  It is the body which has concealed this truth.  And so, it is merely a matter of stripping away the costume bit by bit.  Most humans do not like being naked.  They feel somehow ashamed and exposed in this state, but is this not learned behavior?  All of life is about unlearning.  The body is beautiful, to be sure, but what lies behind the costume is beautiful beyond measure.  Unlike the body, it is the same within all of you:  pure spirit … Love.  It is what binds you, connects all of you as one, yet masked in your bodies you do not see it.  Be naked in spirit and feel the love.

That's the Spirit

That sense you have that someone in spirit is around?  Honor that.  That feeling that the dream you had was a visit?  Honor that.  You are consciousness … spirit here and now.  Those you think you have lost are consciousness … spirit here and now.  How else would you experience those in spirit except through the spirit … with consciousness, which is omnipresent and separate from the body?  Is it all in your imagination?  What is imagination, but the non-physical use of consciousness?  You are all in the imagination of Consciousness.

Those who have passed are not dead and gone.  Their bodies may have returned to dust, but the spirit is as alive as yours is and always will be.  Honor that.  Speak to them, share with them, and continue loving them as they do with you now and always.  How could it be any other way, when all that exists is consciousness … spirit? 

Feeling better now?  That’s the spirit.  Honor that.

How You Could

“How could you?”  Three disparate words, which when put together and added to another phrase bring your vibration instantly plummeting to earth.  “How could you be so ___?"  "How could you do such a thing?”  "How could you, how could you?"  Do you see the effect that words can have on you?  But only if you allow them to.

How you could allow this to happen is quite simple.  You are human.  Words have been used against you in the past like weapons designed to cut, and they were most effective.  From the moment you began to awaken, however, and you remembered that you are only temporarily human but also an eternal spirit, you began to take back your power.  Realize now the power of words to take you instantly back to that state of slumbering.  Acknowledge that you sleep no longer and do not fall into the trap of believing you must act upon the vibrations certain words carry.
How could you have done anything less than loving in the past?  Because you were in human-mode.  Now you know better.

Checking In

How many times throughout your busy day do you think about one who is not physically present, such as a dear friend or parent?  If you are honest, you will admit that at times you can spend most of a day so fully focused on your own life that one who is beloved by you does not come to mind.  This is how it often is with your unseen helpers in spirit.  They are there to lead and guide you, but so busy do you become and so focused on your physical world that it becomes easy to forget your other Team.  In so doing, you are missing out on a vital source of assistance.  Take a break every now and then—a vital love break—to reconnect with the greater aspect of you.  It need not detract from your busy schedule.  That five minutes that you would take to check your messages, you could check in with your higher self.  Do this several times a day.  Take a spirit break, and you will find the connection quite refreshing.

Controlling

How much control do you have?  As much as you want.  The question becomes, how much peace do you want?  Control is of the ego, peace is of the spirit.  The two cannot exist well together.  The more you try to control a situation or others, the farther you are from a state of peace.  The more at peace you are, the less desire you have to control anyone or anything.  Are you afraid of being out of control?  Fear is also of the ego.  Do you wish to be a prisoner of ego or a free spirit?  Why do you feel the need to control?  For you are focusing on the false you.   It is that simple.

In Review

The question has been asked:  Is there a review of the life upon passing to spirit?  This has been reported by those who taste a bit of the world beyond, but who return immediately to enjoy more of the earth experience.  The answer is yes.  All are treated to a slide show of sorts in which scenes of an entire earthly existence are played out in rapid succession.  But these are not static photos.  These are full-immersion replays in an instant during which the soul re-lives those moments which either added to or detracted from the soul’s growth.  You will re-experience the moments that you have enjoyed, and those you have buried in your memory, and those which you though mattered not at all, but in fact mattered greatly. 

You can have such a review now if you wish, but it takes courage.  You know of those still in basic school who take advanced courses, do you not?  You can be like them and perform an experiential life review whilst sitting in the silence.  Ask to be shown where and when you might have chosen better as well as where and when you truly made a difference.  The results may surprise you.

Do not judge yourself as you do so, just as no other will judge you when you ultimately review your life.  See all experiences as the growth opportunities they were and are.  Take that awareness and apply it liberally to each experience from now on and you truly will be in the advanced class, helping all other students around you.

Heavy Lifting

You cannot lift a boulder that is too heavy for you.  And so, you have several choices. You can leave it there blocking your path and make no progress.  You can break it into smaller pieces and carry off one or two stones at a time.  You can ask for help and move it with those who are best suited to help you.

At times in your spiritual journey you find that you are making no forward progress.  If you are brave enough to look into the darkness and shine a light, there you may find not just small stones in your path that need clearing, but a major boulder.  We have now exposed some options for you to take.  If you are brave enough to expose the boulder, then you may be ready for the next step.  Prepare to widen your path.  Beautiful things lie ahead, we assure you, but at times you must do the heavy lifting.

Dealing with Differences

People make mistakes.  Can you forgive them?  People say and do things that do not agree with you.  Can you forgive that?  If you cannot, you may be spending much of your time alone, for no two humans think and act exactly alike.  This is the reason for relationships, to provide you practice in many aspects of being human:  accepting and allowing, surrender, forgiveness, and love.  Does this mean you condone non-loving behavior?  Not at all, but you see the human side in relation to the purely loving soul within and you understand there is growth to be had, perhaps within you as well.  Seeing this, you then make a more loving decision as to how to respond.  It is all a dance:  back and forth, yin and yang seeking harmony.

Free

When you have no more fear or worry, then you are free.  When you have no need to stand out or surpass others, then you are free.  When you no longer judge and make comparisons, then you are free.  Are you beginning to see how enslaved you can be to the human side of you?  The essential part of you that is spirit is always free, but it becomes buried under human ways, which are nothing more than habits.  Repeat as often as necessary, “I AM free.”  It is one of the many tools you can use to return to Love.

Making Room

Run, run, run away.  Run away from your problems, your challenges, and your issues, but they will run right alongside you.  “Look at me!” they say.  “Stop and face me.  All I want is to be noticed, not ignored.”  Can you see this?  Your issues are friends that will continue to pester you until you pay attention to them.  Once you acknowledge them and send them gratefully on their way for the lessons they brought you, they will do so.  All they want is your attention.  By resisting them you only allow them to cause you more challenges, until one day you can ignore them no longer.  Be brave and allow them to speak to you.  Look them squarely in the face and deal with what they have to say.  It is only in ignoring them that they truly cause you problems.  By acknowledging them and allowing them to move along with love, you have created room within yourself for more of your light to shine.

Floating Along

Things do not always go the way you want them to.  What a blessing.  You are not in control.  What a gift.  Can you be comfortable with that?  What a test.  Welcome to being human.  The greatest test you face is being, and being here, and how you react to that.  There are no right or wrong answers to this test, rather what you do with it.  If you wish to find peace in the face of uncertainty, unpredictability, and conflict, then learn to allow.  Allow life to unfold with all of its uncertainties and conflict.  Flow, and bend, and observe.  The drama will always be there.  Will you fight the current or float peacefully?  The choice is always up to you.

Take Notice

Take time for yourself today.  Stop and see something you might have passed by in your hurry to get somewhere or to get it all done.  “It” will always be there, as will that place you are rushing to.  This moment here and now passes you by when you focus on all that you imagine needs to be accomplished.  What about you?  What about breathing?  What about you causes you to rush and hurry and endlessly do instead of pausing to be?

Be still and notice.  Notice the flowers.  Notice each grain of sand or stone in the walk.  Notice the breath.  Stop and take notice.  Take notice with you wherever you go, and you will notice that peace and gratitude walk with you.

Your Best Friend

You become frustrated with the body, with its limitations, aches, pains, breakdowns, and weight gains.  You then proceed to judge it and see it with disdain.  Do you realize that your body is as much a best friend as is your best friend?  Apply the same teachings we have given you about how to see others with the eyes of the soul to the body.  It is your constant companion, and yes, of course, the temple of the soul.  It is only here for a short time, whilst you who inhabit it are eternal.  How do you wish to treat it? 

Yes, you have heard these concepts before, but have you perhaps forgotten to apply them?   Fill the body with naught but light.  Worship and thank it for its faithful service, even if it does not meet your expectations.  Then, push aside your expectations and send your body the gift of acceptance and love.

The One Constant

What do you know with certainty?  Do you know that the sky is blue?  Is it really?  Do you know there is no death?  You trust that life is eternal, but what do you know beyond all thought and beyond anything the senses tell you?  I AM.  This you have always known.  This never changes.  I AM.  What is the first thing that occurs to you without thought upon opening your eyes after sleep?  I AM.  It may not be a conscious thought, but it is the awareness underlying all thought and experience. 

“So what? You ask, and we answer you:  The one constant in all of existence is this IAM.  This same I AM exists in all that is with varying degrees of awareness.  You can now look upon others and recognize I AM in them.  To what end?  To see the connection, the oneness, the Light that binds all.  I AM … Add any modifier you like to this Truth for the experience and the learning, but ultimately life is very simple.  It all comes back to I AM.

Rewriting the Past

You are always encouraged to live in the present moment, but at times it is necessary to dip into the past in order to heal.  Go back in your memories to a painful time … one which if you dreamed of it now you would call it a bad dream.  Why do you call it so?  Because of what was missing at the time.  What is missing in all events that cause you intense pain is a focus on the greater reality of which you are a part.  Perhaps at that time you did not know that you are an eternal soul, born in this world for a temporary experience so that the soul may grow.  This awareness changes one’s perspective greatly.

If you found yourself in a nightmarish situation with no other perspective than the human viewpoint, then of course you would despair.  There is such aloneness when you do not remember that you walk with angels.  As you awaken to this Truth, you can go back to the bad-dream memories of your life and relive them through the eyes of the soul.  Infuse them with Christ-love, Buddha mind, soul awareness.  Feel how the dream would have changed had that awareness been present in you and others. 

No longer carry past pains to your now-moments.  Rewrite the past with soul awareness and heal the present.

The Universal Language

Note from Suzanne:  I received an email from a woman wondering what would happen if a loved one who had passed wanted to communicate with a family member through a medium but they did not speak the same language as the medium.  I asked this question to Sanaya, and they answered:

What are words, but visualizations of concepts and feelings.  They are a step in the process of communication that is unnecessary in the non-physical world.  Once you no longer have a body, you communicate soul to soul, light to light.  Some of you do this now.  You know love when you feel it, as you know fear and other strong feelings.  You know a tree when you see it, without any need of labeling it as such.  When with someone who does not speak the same language in the physical world, you can communicate through pointing at objects, gesturing, and mimicking emotions.  There is no need for any of this once you can communicate solely through the vibration of thought. 
During a reading it makes no difference if a spirit speaks a different language than the medium.  The concept, object, or feeling are sent to the medium as a frequency that the medium’s brain will recognize and “translate” into words.  It is merely an extra step to do so.  This is why certain feelings are common to all of you now.  All souls, whether here or in the hereafter, know love when they feel it, so spend the day speaking love, why don’t you?  It is the universal language.

Scrubbed Clean

Are you feeling offended?  That is ego.  Are you feeling put-upon?  That is ego as well.  Fearful?  Angry?  Judgmental?  Oh, the many faces of ego.  Were you to stop and think about them all they would astound you, and they are oh, so changeable.  They are called masks for a reason.  All of them superimpose your natural state, which wears neither a smile nor a frown. 

Your basic essence is Love.  Try as it might, ego cannot mask that forever.  Love is too powerful.  Unless one’s wounds are so deep that one’s true essence is buried beyond awareness, love will continue to remind you what is real.  Step out from behind the masks and reveal your Self to the world.  You are beautiful without the masks or the makeup.  That shiny look … it is worth exposing.

The Best Policy

Honesty is the best policy.  Why is this?  Because a part of you always knows truth, is truth, has no opposites, is only Love.  That is spirit.  There is another part of you that feels it must protect itself, make itself look better in some way, or come out ahead.  This is ego.  This is the part that cares not about truth, but about separation.  This is the part of you that fears.

Why do you want to speak anything but truth?  It is a good question to ask anytime anything less than truth is upon your tongue.  Acknowledge ego and tell it to go away.  Bring love to the forefront, and with it, honesty.
