Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers:

Who is Sanaya? Suzanne Giesemann answers: "Sanaya 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." (To read the full explanation of who and what Sanaya is, click here.)

Changing the Outcome

And so you find yourself in a situation that is uncomfortable.  The vibrations around you are quite in dissonance with your own.  Always you have a choice.  You can get up and leave, but in keeping with human decorum, this would cause discomfort for those around you.  What to do?  Leave the situation not with the body, but with your consciousness.  Rise above the dissonance and observe from a place of neutrality in a state of utter peace.

My, my!  Isn’t this a new way to handle things!  When the situation is over, you will have had a perfectly fine experience, for you made a higher choice in how to see the experience.  It could have gone quite differently, could it not?  Without even moving, the event had a completely different outcome.  It all comes down to choices and how you choose to use your consciousness.

Doing the Hard Work

There are no shortcuts in this process of awakening.  You must do the hard work.  This is why so many are content to remain in slumber.  And what is the hard work?  Facing your fears, feeling your tears, digging through the years when you were not willing to take a hard look at yourself.  Now you are.

Do not be afraid of what you will find.  Be proud of yourself for having come to the point where you now have the courage to go beyond merely plodding along as so many do, and setting your spirit free.  This takes work and a great deal of awareness, but the rewards—oft hard earned—are well worth the effort.

Royalty

You are royalty.  What if all of you knew this?  There would be some who would let it go to their heads, claiming that they are deserving of special treatment.  Then there would be the few who understood that with this comes responsibility.  And what is that responsibility?  To lead others.  To be fair to others.  To show others that they, too, are magnificent and the offspring of rulers.

This life you are leading now is simply a role.  Have you chosen to play a prince or a pauper?  Royalty in the spiritual sense has nothing to do with external belongings or position, and everything to do with the crown upon your head and the jewel in your heart—both of which connect you to the One Mind which reigns above all and whose lineage you hail from. 
 
The kingdom of God truly is within you.  Hail to the King, but know that there is no need to worship any god or man.  Simply by acknowledging your true lineage do you step into your right and proper role and assume the great duty of being the presence of Love.

The "C" Word

As you uncover old wounds—yes, “uncover,” for some you have buried so deeply in your mind that you are unaware of the effect they still have on you—fill the wound with love.  There is a reason that you can now see these past events and behaviors that continue to affect you.  You have opened your eyes more fully to who you really are—a beautiful, eternal soul who is here to learn through your challenges and triumphs.  Now that you see why you think and behave as you do, can you not feel compassion for yourself?  Compassion and love are the most healing of balms, and self-healing is what it takes to move on and grow.  It need not be painful.  Compassion will take away the pain in an instant.

Stepping Out

There is always more than one way to do a thing, more than one way to respond.  The challenge occurs when you become locked into habitual patterns.  It is human nature to then defend your way of doing something so that when another proposes a different way, at times this comes as a shock.  Changing your way would require adjustment.  Use this as a learning tool.  Perhaps there is a better way.  Could it be there is no right way or wrong way after all?  Why, this would require losing your self-imposed restrictions.  The result, no matter how the new choice turns out, is growth, simply because you were willing to step outside of your box.

Only Love

Defensiveness … What is its origin?  Ego.  Always the ego tries to protect itself, and it does this by giving you the illusion of separation from others.  There is only the separation of individual traits.  At your essence there is only Consciousness.  Consciousness is Love.  Anything less than that reveals a focus on the smaller self, ruled by ego, and not on the Highest Self that joins all as One.

If you feel the need to protect the smaller self, to prove that you are right, to defend your beliefs, actions, appearances, or any aspect of your individuality, there is nothing wrong with this.  It is the human way.  But when you can see that it only serves to keep you separate from others and farther from the highest expressions of Love, then you know that you are not truly free.

Freedom comes when you let down your guard and “let it be.”  There is only Love.  All else is a Learning Opportunity.

Thank you, Bev!

Many thanks to my assistant, Bev, for posting all of the available transcripts and recordings from the 2013 sessions with Sanaya on my website (under the Sanaya tab - "Special Sessions with Sanaya"):  http://www.suzannegiesemann.com/sanayasessions/ 

The next session will be in Oxford, FL, at Temple Shalom on December 7th at 7 PM.  All are invited to share the loving energy and messages.

Your Greatest Teachers

Family members do not always do what you would like or expect.  Why should they?  You chose each other for the growth opportunities you would provide to the other.  If all of you were perfectly loving and compatible, why then you would have to go and find someone else to push your buttons so that you could practice unconditional love.

We hope you read our words with humor, for humor is what is often necessary in dealing with family matters.  Humor and compassion, for all of you see life from a different perspective depending on the seat you have been occupying in this theater in the round you call life.  Same family or not, that seat is different from that of others in your family, so when differences arise, realize that their perspective may differ from yours and love them anyway.  You may no longer share a room or a roof, but you do share a lineage, and there is a reason for that.

Aware

Emotions serve a purpose.  Caused by your thoughts in the first place, emotions then cause the body to secrete certain hormones dependent upon the emotion.  These hormones then cause what you call a “feeling” within the physical body.  At times these feelings are pleasurable; at times distasteful.  No matter whether preferable or not preferable, the feelings impel you to act.  In so doing, change occurs.  Do you see the perfection?

Life is about growth … evolution toward a more profitable state of consciousness.  If there is no change, there is no growth.  At times, there is decay instead of growth, but the natural impulse is toward growth, which is why the human is drawn toward pleasure and repulsed by pain.  See your emotions for what they are:  catalysts for change, and then notice how every thought results in an emotion.  And then realize that you control whether you grow, decay, or stay the same.

If you desire to grow and fulfill your reason for being here, be aware, and act as a truly sentient being.  Your life will flow all the more smoothly as a result.

The Wellspring

If you cannot love yourself, then when others who have shown you love are no longer present, the pain in your heart will be quite acute – more so than the losses that all experience as a part of normal human life.  This is a sign.  That pain is telling you that this area is in need of healing, not filling by another outside of yourself. 

Faced with this aching hole, many will rush to fill it with a new love, or with chemical substances, food, excess activity … anything that will temporarily fill the emptiness of perceived loss.  It is never filled permanently from the outside, but from the inside, like a deep well that had run dry.  How to get the wellspring flowing again?  First, be grateful for those who show(ed) you love, and then turn that love on yourself. 

“Unworthy!  Unworthy!”  Aha!  Do you see how ego subverts your efforts?  Now go back, back in your human life and discover the source of this lie.  There may be more than one person or event which caused you to believe this about yourself.  This has been causing a blockage in the wellspring of self-love within you.  As you discover these blockages and remove them, the Love within you will flow back in to fill that perceived void.  Then no other beside you is necessary.  Appreciated, of course, but only so that you can bestow upon them the fullness of who you are, Love, and finally find peace.

Testing

There is a difference between being told what to believe and thinking for yourself.  A test you can try is to ask yourself if you experience fear at the thought of not believing.  Many of you would like to believe in a greater reality.  You would like to believe that you will not be judged by others—only by yourself—when you leave this earthly existence, and other such concepts, but fear holds you back.

Within you lies the greatest judge of Truth.  Go to the area of the heart and test your beliefs there.  Test others’ beliefs there.  Do you feel fear or peace?  How does it feel?

Right and wrong are changeable things.  You need not put words to the feeling.  You will simply know which path to follow, which belief is to be yours for the next portion of your path.  Yes, for the next portion … for even beliefs are changeable.  Test them often.

Your Natural Rights

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  These are rights one nation has proclaimed as its own and as those of all other human beings.  These are your birth rights, indeed, because all of you are not just human, but spirit.  The soul is Life.  Life cannot be taken away, even by the death of the physical body.  Liberty is always yours, even if the human body is in shackles.  It is only the ego which keeps the human shackled.  Freedom comes with the dissolution of the ego.  And happiness?  This is the natural consequence of coming into alignment with the spirit.  Joy is the natural uprising of emotion felt when love flows unimpeded through the vessel.  These are indeed yours to experience, and all of these are directly tied to the mind—to awareness of who and what you are eternally—and not to external circumstances.

Heavy Lifting

No one can do the heavy lifting for you.  Being human is easy.  You simply follow the crowd.  Being an awakened human may be a bit more challenging.  Once awakened, it is no longer so easy to follow along and to think as those who remain ignorant to a greater reality do.  You now face choices.  You have always faced choices, but now you are much more aware of the consequences in the greater scheme of things.  To forgive or not to forgive?  In the past it was easy to hang onto your anger.  To judge or not to judge?  Do you see?  Once you open the eyes of the soul your choices from moment to moment become far more important.  The lifting is easy for the soul; not always so easy for the human, which is why you must do the heavy lifting yourself.

Brighter

You have your earthly body for a reason.  Use it.  Take care of it.  It is the vessel, the container, for the Light that you are.  Do not disdain this vessel.  It has much to teach you.  There is a reason you are in human form at this time in this place.  You are here to allow the Light that you are to shine ever brighter.  The body, in effect, is your Light bulb, powered by the Source.  How brightly do you shine?  How brightly CAN you shine?  Use the body today to express the Light … your Light.  There are so many ways to do so.  Be innovative.  Do not waste a moment sitting in darkness.  Step into your full glory and shine.

Be a Messenger

Note from Suzanne:  Do you know someone in need of healing?  Be an angel (the meaning of which is "messenger") like the therapist mentioned in this comment just received at www.SanayaSays.com:

"Every morning begins with Sanaya Says. I am so grateful to you (and my therapist who suggested I read your blog and books - I have been through emotional and physical traumas that few people could have survived). I view your work as life-saving, from the heart, and from a dimension that few on earth can touch."

Better

Is this as good as it gets?  Is this all there is?  Of course not.  The fact that you are asking is indicative of more.  The soul knows.

There is a far greater reality connected with this physical experience and many greater realities beyond that, some with no connection whatsoever to your familiar home.  Do not worry about those.  If you wish to experience what you call “better,” concern yourself only with yourself. 

What is “better?”  The soul knows.  It all has to do with love—the highest quality of consciousness, which is all there is.  The better you become at expressing love—at being pure love—the greater your awareness of and interaction with the greater realities, where you can immerse yourself in even higher sensations of love.  If you consider that “better,” then you had better get better at loving all that is with all your heart.

Step by Step

Fundamentals … the basic lessons you learn as children in your primary schools before you move on to the more advanced topics.  It is like anything in life:  You must crawl before you walk and walk before you run.  You wish to be enlightened and to awaken fully to the grandeur of Spirit and to embody who you really are.  You are doing this … step by step.  First you must crawl.  Then, as you learn to stand on your feet the view changes and you along with it. 

Awakening is like that.  If you awaken fully, there would be no need to continue your earthly experience other than to help others do the same.  You are here to learn and grow, and if you apply what you learn about who you are and the reality of this existence, then you will be ever more unconditionally loving with each step you take.  Enjoy the journey … step by step.

Silver Lining

You are told to look for the silver lining.  What causes this effect?  The sun shines from behind a dark cloud, showing you with its luminous rays that even in the face of obstacles the Light is still there.  It catches your attention and you are drawn to it.  All light is like this.  When you pass from this physical existence, a great light will draw you onward.  It is the contrast between dark and light that has always shown you the way.  You are the Light, and so, like seeks like. 

Do not curse the darkness.  This is sage advice.  Darkness serves a great purpose, but you need not remain there.  Look for that silver lining and you shall find it simply because the Light in you which will never go out seeks its Source.  With that Source you are eternally connected.  Light is your natural state.

The Main Character

There are many layers to every story … subplots running through a single theme.  Many characters come into play, coming and going for a reason.  In a well-crafted story, there are no extraneous characters—all serve a purpose, and so it is with the characters in your life.  Even those you think are “extras” have value in your story.  Do not overlook them.  Give gratitude for their presence.  Acknowledge them if you are able through personal contact.  If too many, then do so in your heart.  You will be well rewarded.   Most important, remember that your story is simply that—one you have agreed to play a starring role in.  It is not set in stone, but is a fluid thing.  If you are not happy with the way it is going, change the story line, but do so by working on the main character:  you.

True Growth

You will always emerge stronger from your challenges.  Yes, you may feel as if you descend to the depths of despair, but from the firm bottom you bounce back even higher.  If you always stay on even ground, there is little growth.  It is by experiencing diversity that you learn.  Learning and growth are why you are having this earthly experience.  Be aware:  There is a difference between experiencing what you perceive as challenges (the lows) and experiencing massive mood swings.  The two need not go hand in hand.  Indeed, when you can separate the two, then you know that true growth has occurred.
