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."

Integration

Long distance travelers grow weary.  All need rest at some point.  Along the path you cannot be in a constant state of doing without suffering imbalance.  Periods of merely being allow for integration of what is learned during the doing.  On and off, work and play, doing and being.  Seek balance, and even in the rest there is growth.

Beneath the Surface

How do you find peace?  By going within.  Certainly, it can be found outside of you, but not for long, for that is not the nature of the external world.  There you may get shaken up a bit, tossed about by the waves, and that is as it should be.  But when you grow weary of the learning experiences offered to you there on the surface, sink, sink, sink to the quiet waters within.  You cannot stay there forever, either, nor does your soul want to, for it longs to stretch and grow.  This is the nature of life:  ongoing cycles of stretching, growth, rest, and regeneration.  You see it in nature all around you.  When you can see it and recognize it within yourself, you can find peace even within the duality.

The Straightest Path

Cheating … when one arrives at a prize by not following established rules … when one earns position, authority, success, or gain of any kind by a crooked path.  The thought brings a concept of unfairness to mind.  The hair bristles.  It is human nature to desire the prize and to obtain it by the easiest methods.  You can understand this.  “Where is the fairness?”  Right or wrong, fair or unfair … these are human concepts.  Cheating is a human thing.  You all arrive at the state of mind you call Heaven—the grand prize—by following the path of the heart.  Yes, all will arrive on the other side by hook or crook, but the state of Consciousness with which you arrive will differ based upon how you thought and acted whilst in human form.  You cannot cheat death and you cannot trick the soul, which knows only honesty and love.  Be pure love and go directly Home, to Heaven, which resides in your heart, not some far off place.

In a World of Duality

To focus on the positive does not mean to put your head in the sand.  Sooner or later, as a human, you must come up for air.  You look around you and you see what you call evil.  You know it, for it is in such dissonance with the heart and soul of you.  Denying it does not make it go away, but you need not condone it nor accept it.  There is a difference between allowing and accepting.  Accepting says, “I live in a world of duality, but perhaps by helping to spread ripples of love I can make a difference.  And so, I allow these things to unfold as they will, but I do not accept them as my path.  I give no power to any-thing but Love.  I see it, I recognize it, but I do not accept this as my Truth.  I AM Love.”  With this mindset, and allowing others to accept or reject their own truth, you find peace within the duality.

When the Impossible Becomes Possible

To dream the impossible dream … Yes, songs and movies have been written from this phrase.  Lives have been rewritten as a result of it.  So many fail to dream, and those who do, dream only of possible things.  How your world would expand if you knew that anything is possible.  You are a creative being born in the image and likeness of the Creator.  Does this mean your Creator has two eyes, legs, and hands?  Or does it mean the Creator is Consciousness from which all that is—including you—has arisen?

Think of the impossibility that of the billions of beings who could have arisen from the union of billions of beings and cells YOU are here. 

Anything is possible when you dream big enough, but does it serve the greater good?  Is there a greater purpose in it?  Ah, yes, there’s the rub.  Put the two together—impossible dreams and greater purpose—and you have the keys to creation.

Fearless

Fear is an integral part of the human experience—a great learning tool as well as a survival mechanism.  It is hard-wired into your system in the fight or flight response.  Do not disdain fear, but appreciate it.  But when there is no need or ability to flee, examine which of your fears are truly necessary.  Your survival, when you see with the eyes of the soul, is assured.

There is no death.  From this perspective, there is no need to fear anything.  It is only those who remain fixed in human-ego consciousness who live with fear as a partner.  Those who know the truths of the spirit may still respond with fight or flight in the moment of human “beingness,” but upon remembering who they are eternally, make the simplest shift of awareness, and move beyond the fear to the heart.  Here peace prevails in the eternal awareness that there is only one Power, and that Power is Love. 

You are That.  You come from That and live to express That.  Fear is a beautiful reminder that you live for a while now in two worlds and can choose where you place your focus:  on human or spirit, fear or love.

Ever Onward

Allow yourself to make what you call mistakes.  We call them learning opportunities.  You will have these opportunities repeatedly for the rest of your life.  A decision made or an action taken which leads to a less than optimal outcome is not a mistake if it leads to soul growth.  Get used to making mistakes, but instead of feeling regret, as you awaken more and more to who you are and why you are here, feel gratitude instead that you always have choices and always will.  Set the intention of making the optimal choices with the awareness that even those choices will change as you grow.

Bonds

When one you have known passes from your life it is a shock.  You are so very used to having their physical presence with you.  You see, feel, and hear the effects of a physical body and equate this with the one you know and love.  “I can’t believe they no longer exist!” you think in this state of shock.  “How can they be here one minute and gone the next?”  We wish you to know they are not gone, and they most certainly exist.  What is gone is the physical presence.  Yes, this is a great loss, but we wish you to realize that the spirit of that one is as near as your thoughts.

It is the human way to focus on the physical to the exclusion of the spirit.  Where was and is your greatest connection?  At the heart.  Were it not for that bond, all else would lose its importance.  The body may be gone, but the bond remains.  That bond was always of the spirit, soul-to-soul, and that soul is still with you. 
Heaven is not a far off place.  It is as near as your heart.  You need only lessen your insistence and focus on the physical aspects and learn to shift your awareness to the spirit.  You are That now.  Go to the heart and connect.  Have a conversation soul-to-soul.  The one who has passed will rejoice.  “Finally, she knows!  Finally, he knows!  I am here, and I love you.”
The soul is eternal.  The body is not.  Miss the physical presence as you will, but realize the truth:  Love lasts forever.

The Bridge

Build a bridge from your heart to the world, and then you can go anywhere with confidence.  When connected to your Source at the center, you are aligned with and guided by Love.  Yes, you may stumble a bit when walking amongst humans who have not yet discovered this sacred place, but you will never fall.

Be honest with yourself.  When you have fallen in the past, were you in alignment?  Where was ego?  At your side or tucked away where he belongs? 
Remain in the center—not always the easiest thing to do, but most certainly the most rewarding—and you will always arrive safely Home.  You never really left, you know.  With this realization, you come to understand that the bridge from the heart is a bridge that takes you right back where you started.

A Different Kind of Power

All the wisdom of the Universe is held within a fingernail and within one tiny cell of that nail.  There is no more power in your entire body than in one hair on your body.  All that exists is your Source in form, as is all that you cannot see.

Such power you will acquire when you surrender to this knowledge, to this Awareness, to this wisdom.  But it is not the human kind of power that wishes to lord over others.  Instead, it is a Power that wishes only to experience, to be, and to love.  With such a power there are no more needs, no more desires, no more angst. With such a power you can move mountains, but you are now content to simply be in the presence of those mountains and enjoy their majesty, knowing that same Majesty flows through you. 

If you begin to feel overwhelmed this day, be still, contemplate your fingernail, and relax.

Starting Anew

As you bounce back from a deep challenge, you start anew.  There is no need to revisit it and relive it again and again.  Do you do this?  If it is to see how you can avoid such a challenge again or how you could respond more lovingly should it recur, then reliving it is beneficial.  If it is to merely rehash the lower vibrations, beware.  Start anew each moment of your existence.  The past is the past.  Drag nothing with you but lessons learned and the will to evolve.  In so doing, your challenges become gifts and not baggage.

For a Reason

So many wish to take their own lives when a loved one passes.  So closely bonded are you that you feel as if a part of you and in some cases the whole of you is gone.  May it help in some way to know that they are closer than your breath, as near as your thoughts, and most certainly connected to your heart.

Now, what of this use of free will in which you take your life into your own hands?  Do you not know that there is remedial schooling and a sort of hospitalization for those who do this?  You will remain segregated upon passing from those you most wanted to be reunited with.  Yes, there will be visits, just as your loved one’s spirit visits you now, but you reap what you sow on the other side as much as you do in this one.  There are consequences for every action.  The pain caused to those left behind is commensurate with what you will feel upon realizing that your choice was far from optimal.

Do you know why you are still here and your loved one is not?  Simply because you are here for your own soul’s growth.  You soul made this decision, and you have yet more learning and loving to do.  The pain you feel is an indicator of this.  Your loved ones on the other side are patient now that they have the greater perspective.  To them your absence is only the blink of an eye.  To you it seems an eternity, but you have all of eternity to be together again. 
 
Allow Spirit to decide when you will be reunited again and enjoy a most blessed and fruitful reunion.  In the meantime, breathe deeply often and pray, “Oh, Spirit, may I feel your presence.  Tell me what I have to learn from this time.  Show me how I can grow and serve as a result of this pain.  I am so grateful for the love we shared, that we continue to share, and will always share.”

Love is eternal, as is Life.  You have a Lifetime to be with your love.  This is but a parenthesis in eternity.

Note from Suzanne:  The last line, “A Parenthesis in Eternity,” is the title of an excellent book by Joel Goldsmith that discusses the illusory boundaries we call birth and death.

Who You Are

When you gaze upon another, see the face of God, of Spirit.  It comes in billions of forms, not just human, but all that is.  As for the human aspects of the divine, it expresses itself in many ways, many of which you may not find pleasant or even likeable.  Know that the same “I” who is inside of you is inside of all others, no matter if you resonate with a person or not.

See beyond the fa├žade, and the personality, and the way that one has chosen to express their divinity to the pure potential aspect of their spirit.  The I AM that lies within you is the same I AM in all others.  It is through taking on those potentials in the form of form and personality that the I AM displays itself as “i am.”  Whether or not you resonate with that i am … I AM.  How does that change things for you?

On Loan

Your body is on loan to you.  It is a gift.  When you own a thing, do you not have a tendency to take it for granted and to not treat it as carefully as if you know it belongs to Another?  Treat it with kid gloves.  What does this mean?  Handle it with care, lest you have to return it and explain why you were so careless. 

Now, knowing that this vessel which houses your spirit is not really yours, why do you also take credit for its ailments?  “My cold, my cancer, my heart attack,” and the like.  If the vessel you have borrowed is not quite perfect, is that a result of how you have treated it or was it slightly imperfect to begin with?  No matter!  The one who is temporarily using that vessel is perfect, beautiful, and eternal.  You have borrowed and agreed to use your vessel for a very good and valuable purpose:  to let your light shine.  How are you doing at that?

Finding Peace

Nothing lasts forever—not good times or bad.  Remember this when you are joyous or distraught.  Why?  Because joy and despair are merely opposite experiences along a spectrum you call human life.  If you can recognize that these changing states are reflections of your humanness, then you can recognize that there is another aspect of yourself.

Picture three points of a triangle.  Place joy at one point, perhaps the lower right, and despair at the opposite point on the left, and another point between the two but high above.  That point represents the place of peace.  Now cast a three dimensional sphere around that upper point.  It encompasses both the joy and the despair and all points in between and around.  That sphere represents the possibilities of all human experience which are yours to enjoy or not to enjoy.
When you are ready for some peace, return to that upper point of the triangle, which you can see now is also the very center of the sphere.  It is there at the center of you.  So now we must modify our initial statement in light of this new understanding.  Nothing lasts forever in the human experience except the eternal point of peace at the center … which is the center of Consciousness … the eternal I AM.

Giving Meaning

Where do memories come from?  Not from the brain.  They are not stored there any more than your current thoughts are.  Memories are just current thoughts that continue to exist as vibration.  Each exists as a pattern … a frequency that your beautiful instrument of a brain detects and displays for you as needed.  It is you who gives that frequency meaning.  It is you who allows those eternal thought patterns to affect you.

And now, the big announcement:  You exist as a thought-pattern.  Of whom or of what?  Of the One Divine Mind.  It is you who gives meaning to Life, but only after you give meaning to YOUR life … the Life experiences you are having now.  How will you color them with your seemingly individual mind?  With black paint or gold?  With lower thoughts or love-filled gems?

All is Consciousness and you are That.  Let memories hold no sway over you unless they lead you to a greater experience of Love.

Finding Peace

How do you spell “relief”?  P-E-A-C-E.  How do you find peace?  In your very own thoughts and observations.  It is not a thing outside of yourself.  You can experience peace even in the midst of what most would label a disaster if you come so thoroughly to recognize the difference between your two aspects:  human and spirit.  The human, ruled by ego, has a completely different viewpoint than that of spirit.  The viewpoint of ego roams all about a dance floor.  Spirit views the dance floor form above, from a central viewpoint where all is seen and observed with equanimity.  The difference in peace is substantial. 

How do you find relief?  Go to the center and rise above.  Ah, yes.  There it is, and there You are.

Digging In

Allow, allow, allow.  What does this mean?  When you dig in your heels, no matter the reason, life cannot flow.  You become stuck in a pattern of thoughts or actions, no matter how “saintly,” and growth does not occur.  Taking a strong position, even if you are sure it is “spiritual” or “correct” will always impede the flow of Life, because you now must defend it and are not open to change and other viewpoints.

All of Life is about growth of the soul, which requires change.  Even the soul is changing.  The only “thing” that never changes is the underlying Absolute, which few in human form experience.  When they do so, it is only for the briefest of ecstatic moments.  Until that moment of eternal bliss, relax.  Relax your standards, relax your belief systems, relax your jaw.  It is all okay.  All of it.  All is part of the great Tapestry of Life.

This note from one of Sanaya's followers made my day:

"Suzanne, I just have to share this with you!  My husband and I were at the new (grocery store) yesterday. As we were checking out it became clear very quickly the gentleman ringing up the groceries was a new trainee. Unsure of himself, slow, grappling with price codes and such. No judgement intended here, just observation.  Before we left the house, I had just finished listening to and reading the transcript from this past Sunday's session with Sanaya about the costumes we wear, especially the analogy they gave you regarding the Spiderman costume and the little boy.

Before my ego got a chance to rear up concerning the new employee, Sanaya's message overpowered it. It gave me the image of unzipping this young man's costume and seeing Jesus step out of it. Then it struck me! Here's the Christ consciousness in physical form, learning what it feels like to be a checker in a grocery store! Feeling the lack of confidence, frustration, being extra cautious packing the items, trying to be cheerful but feeling the impatience of the customer, all of those emotions. I stood there seeing that scene, smiling from ear to ear and my heart overflowed with love for this guy."

Habitual

Your so-called “bad” habits are at times deeply ingrained.  They come from a lifetime of beliefs that are out of alignment with your true nature as spirit.  Some you can shuck off quite easily, once recognized.  Others are a bit more tenacious.  Be patient.  Life will continue to give you uncomfortable and yes, at times, painful lessons surrounding these beliefs and habits until you no longer care to cling to them a moment longer.  At that point the light will go on and you will fling them away, finished with them once and for all.  How much discomfort are you willing to tolerate?  It is always your choice.
