My dear friends...
When I was living as a Street Person, under the open sky and in the weather, I came to deeply understand, experientially, the nature of fear. I also learned how to overcome it. And today I fear very little. This leads to an interesting question: What came first, my loss of fear or the Good Life that I am enjoying? Did the Good Life produce my loss of fear, or did my loss of fear produce the Good Life?
I am clear now as I look back on it that it was the latter and not the former. It was my loss of fear that produced the Good Life. Unfortunately, I went to great lengths in my own life to get rid of my fear. In my case, I had to literally lose everything already before I could get to a place where I was no longer afraid of what I would lose! I took myself to the very bottom, relinquished everything that I held dear, let go of all of my physical possessions, watched my dreams and life goals evaporate, and stood by as an amazed observer as I witnessed my body finding itself homeless.
Only when I reached the place where I had "nothing to lose" did I lose the one thing that I was trying to lose: my fear. Out there on the street, my thoughts turned to everything that I had to gain — and so I quite naturally gained everything. Where your thoughts are, there will your future also be.
I do not recommend this process to others. I am certain there is an easier way to understand that, as Franklin Roosevelt said, we have "nothing to fear but fear itself."
Many times earlier in my life I have tried to teach myself this lesson, to bring myself to a remembrance of this truth. Many times earlier in my life I had sustained losses which I was convinced would leave me unhappy forever, only to find that joy and happiness were not nearly as elusive as I had imagined they would be, and that I could, indeed, be happy without the thing that I thought I could never lose.
What I'm trying to say here is that my life has shown me over and over again that I can sustain enormous loss and still retain my inner peace and happiness. And now, after the Conversations with God experience, I am really very clear about this, because I have come to understand that the peace and the joy and happiness which I seek does not and cannot come to me from outside of myself.
It sounds so trite to me when I say something like that. Everyone says "joy must come from within." But it is true. Every time I have placed the source of my happiness outside of myself, I have been disappointed. Every time I place the source of my happiness inside of myself, I am fulfilled. Let me share with you a technique that I have used with wonderful effectiveness in my own life to realize that the truest happiness and the greatest joy lies within me. I experience this the moment that I bring happiness to others.
All I have to do to experience all the peace, all the serenity, all the wisdom, all the understanding, all the joy, and all the happiness that lies within me (and that is inherently part of my nature) is to decide to give these things away — to be the source of these things for others. For in the moment that I give these things away, I experience that I have them.
The fastest way to experience that you have anything — the fastest way to experience that you ARE anything — is to give what you have and what you are in fullest measure to others. That is why it is been said by virtually every spiritual master who has walked on this planet: "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
This is not because "giving" is a "nice thing to do," but because "giving" is the fastest pathway to the treasure chest that lies within each of us. It is the combination that opens the safe. It is the key that turns the lock. It is how we get into the space where our True Self resides.
Once we are in that space, we come from that space. And that is a great secret.
When I was younger a popular phrase that was thrown around by everyone was, "Where are you coming from?" Everyone was asking everyone else, "Where are you coming from with that?" When you're coming from the place where the True Self resides you quite naturally send outward — you literally emit from yourself — the Essential Energy that is found at the core of your being.
This energy is called, by some, Love. This is Who You Really Are. And there is no faster or more profound way to experience this than to allow this energy to flow through you to others.
The interesting thing about this is that in this choice not only do you find yourself, but you give others back to themselves. For what others see in you they begin to see in themselves. You stand as the great example and the great possibility for others.
And, of course, as you bring happiness and joy and peace to others, they experience themselves as more of Who They Really Are. They get back in touch with themselves. So two things occur at once: They see themselves in you, and they experience their True Self within themselves.
When you bring someone happiness, they become happy. When you bring someone joy, they become joyous. When you bring someone wisdom, they become wise. All you are doing is placing them in touch with what already exists within them.
This is the insight of every great master. This is the understanding of every great teacher. This is the "aha!" that every student comes to. We are doing nothing here with our spiritual work but giving people back to themselves.
First, we start with ourselves. Then we move on to others. Ultimately, the whole of humanity is returned to Itself.
Can this happen? Can this really occur? Is transformation of an entire species possible? Of course it is. This is called growth. It is the means by which a species evolves.
We are moving now into a rapid phase in this process. The process itself is speeding up, exponentially. The question is not whether this is occurring, the question is, what part will you play in its occurring? Will it be something that is happening TO you, or something that is happening THROUGH you? That is the only question.
In order for it to be happening through us, we must release ourselves from our fears.
One of the greatest fears in life as I have observed it is the fear of being rejected. Certainly, I have experienced this fear in my life. I would have to believe that most of us have. I have found a powerful antidote to this fear. I simply do not reject anyone for any reason at all.
When I give others my total acceptance something quite remarkable happens. Two things, actually. First, when I give others my total acceptance I give myself total acceptance. Second, when I give others my total acceptance they give me their total acceptance. What goes around comes around. Life sends to us what we send to it. It is every bit as simple as that, and I know that I am preaching to the choir here, so please don't feel talked down to. The truth is, I'm really talking to myself. I'm reminding myself of what I already know.
All the things I fear, I amplify. All the things I love, I amplify as well. Conversations with God tells us that there are only two places from which to come as we move through our lives. We are either coming from Love or we are coming from Fear in everything that we think and say and do.
I have learned to check my inner sense of where I'm coming from with all of my important thoughts, words, and actions. And when I feel that I'm coming from Fear, I try to move closer to the core of my being, to the Essential Energy, to the True Self.
It sometimes feels dangerous for me to do this. It sometimes feels as though I am risking everything. Only when I continue to understand that I have nothing to lose do I find it easy to stand in my truth, to say what is so for me, to express myself authentically in every moment, and to remove the shield that I have been holding in front of me in the imagining that I must protect myself from you.
These days I am clear that you are not who I need to protect myself from. You are who I do not wish to separate myself from ever again. It is in the reality of our Oneness that I will find my true freedom from fear.
I wish you well on this day. I wish you Godspeed on your journey. I wish you peace and joy and love and happiness on your path. I promise to provide you with company along the way whenever and however I can. I choose never to feel separate from life again, in any of its manifest forms. I am free. Free from fear at last. In the Oneness I am free.
love and hugs,

Your Primary Intention By Shelly Dressel
Shelly's Message .....
Prior to our birth, we all created intentions of what we wanted for our life. Sometimes you know exactly what that is; other times you keep going in circles trying to figure it out. During the channel, the Goddess of Creation assists us with looking at exactly this.
Almost everyone has something in their life that just hasn’t worked out. It may be a niggling irritation or something huge that keeps coming around and around. No matter how big or small, if it keeps coming up for you in one form or another, it becomes a block. This channel is to clear out the blocks that repeated frustrations can cause. This channel is to help you understand what your soul wanted to accomplish during this lifetime.
This channel goes deeply into your core essence so that you may have these answers. It opens the door to amazing love and light energy to help you know that you are never alone.
Nama sika Venia benya, I AM the One, I AM the Whole
The Goddess Message .....
I greet you beloved family. I reach out from my heart to yours. I reach out to embrace all who are here.
Just as Shelly was saying prior to this channel I’d like to reiterate from time to time that you are not alone. Also, that time space reality between you and the Human and your physical reality, and I the Goddess and my vibration within which I reside, are just different dimensions.
A dimension is a vibration. A dimension is a space of consciousness and there are frequently bridges that are created from one space to the other. I am always available to you. I seek to assist in any way that I may.
There may be times when people pray and ask for assistance, and then feel as if there is nothing around them; nothing is happening; nobody is hearing them.
When people get into that mode they become very closed down. You do so because you’re anxious; you’re stressed out; you might be frustrated and angry. There is an emotion involved that keeps you from being able to see things as the big picture. That does not mean that we are not there. It means that your perception as a human is unable to take in our messages to you.
When you get into these situations and find yourself very frustrated, or angry, or scared - it is important to acknowledge those emotions. Even though you can't help feeling what you are feeling - you can get into the habit of acknowledging a particular emotion and then immediately turning over and opening to receive love.
That will begin to transition whatever that emotion was so you can feel love again. Indeed, sometimes it’s difficult to be open to love when you are caught up at a situation where it seems as if love is at the very distant end of the realm.
I invite you now in this moment, while everybody is still here in your everyday life, to take this moment and whatever it is that is on your mind or on your heart and just let it come up from within you, ~phew~ let it go - clear it out.
Then open to receive the love of your Divinity and my Soul Essence. Feel that love as it comes down into you. It is like you are a funnel and there is limitless love and potential that comes down into you the Human, and whatever fills you up from inside of you then the rest just flows around you.
Be love. Be in the space of love. Allow the vibration of love to interpret anything that may happen to you in your daily life.
When you do so you will know that you are not alone. You will know that there is not only the vibration of your own self here to support you, but the Angels, I the Goddess, so many different beings are here for you. You are loved.
Take a deep breath in and send that breath of light from your heart center. Send it down into the earth. As that column of light goes down into the Earth it spreads out merging with Gaia.
Feel in the energies of Gaia as it anchors and supports you. You allow those energies to then come back up within you. They go out through the top of your head and as if you send a beam of light out from you it moves up until it blends with your Higher Self.
Within the space of your Higher Self you have a great deal of support and energy. If you have clutter within this space ~whew~ let it go - clear it out. Look around. Perhaps some of those things that you were looking for in your human experience are sitting right here waiting for you.
As that energy clears out you then send it even further. That beam of light continues even further until it follows that thread of energy that links you the Human to your Soul, and as it goes directly into your Divinity you have a sense of arriving.
For some of you it is as if you just see this beautiful cloud filled with energy. Others of you have a sense of each lifetime lined up. Others simply feel the love and the acceptance of Soul and of Source.
Allow yourself to merge with these energies. As you merge, you, as the consciousness of this person that you are, blends completely with your Soul or your Source essence.
I invite you, as you merge, to perhaps let the consciousness of some of those lifetimes move through you. Perhaps they have been working with you all week. Perhaps there is something new that is coming up. This is your chance to be in this experience.
I the Goddess walk in and amongst each one of you. As I do so I allow my energies to merge with you. As our energies merge together we shift into the space of the All That Is. Look around. Feel the love. Feel the potential that just pulsates within this space
The Universe and the Omniverse have a flow and a balance that moves in and out, not only within our own Galaxy, but in the Universe, in the Omniverse, and then the other Planets and series of Planets. The more transparent that the energy becomes the easier you may flow or move from one space to another.
As we are here in the All That Is I invite you to take a moment and allow your focus to come within. Take this moment and feel the calm and the presence that is intrinsically here within the space.
As you breathe and open up inside your consciousness and inside your heart allow this existence, the unconditional love, the support, the awareness to just flow within and around you.
If there is anything that is keeping you from feeling that energy allow it to come up at this point. If there is anxiety, fear, frustration, anger, any of those emotions that might hinder you from recognizing that this is the space of love and support let those energies come up now. Just bring them up, bring them up, bring them up and ~phew~ let them go - clear them out!
As we cleared out those energies for many of you, it was as if a vulnerability kind of came to the surface. If you feel vulnerable when you let go of fear, or anxiety, or anger, then look at your life with that intention to discover what you are masking with these emotions and energies that you feel?
Allow whatever is underneath everything, allow it come up, bring it up again ~phew~ let it go. As you let go whatever those emotions are - immediately send love into the underlying emotion that felt like it needed to have a mask or something over it. Whew, I just felt this movement in the energy.

Experience Freedom From Negative Thoughts By Shanta Gabriel
This message from Archangel Gabriel suggests a useful practice that allows us to create a time frame in which we cease judging ourselves.
Give yourself a fast from negative thoughts about yourself.
Message From Shanta .....
This card always shows up at opportune moments when I notice I am being less than compassionate with myself. This attitude is a very old habit.
Over the years, it appeared as if I thought being relentless in my criticism about myself would somehow make me better. My ego must have wanted to ensure that I was doing "it all correctly." This made me live in a very contracted state, and of course I attracted people that would step right in and add more judgments in case I relaxed my vigilance.
It was during the millennium shift when I received a brilliant gift from the Universe, disguised as the loss of everything I held dear. At that critical juncture, I realized that if ever I needed compassion, that was the time. I also started giving myself more permission to be authentic and live in my truth. I noticed that when I would back off from my critical mind, my heart would open, and I felt more love for all things — including myself. It was a new experience.
It is clear that if being very critical and hard on myself could create my enlightenment, it would have happened long ago. What my spirit needs is tenderness and support. It takes a different kind of vigilance to be aware of my habitual thoughts about myself and my world. My feelings let me know.
When I'm hard on myself, I feel awful. There's the first clue. I go out of my way now to be as kind to myself as I am with others. Usually, I am very kind to other people and give them the benefit of my love and compassion. This is what I need as well.
Sometimes I just put my hand on my heart when I notice my thinking has gone off the love track. (This is the Quick Coherence Technique from HeartMath.org.) That simple gesture brings me back into a loving place with myself and helps me attune to the One Heart within all beings. Just touching myself kindly in this way is also very soothing to my inner self, as well as my mammalian body.
Synchronicity was demonstrated beautifully after I wrote the above paragraph. I went to my email, and there from HeartMath was an article about the importance of self-love. When this happens, I love it. It helps me to know that I am in tune. Here is a portion of the article:
Self-love means being more compassionate, patient and accepting of ourselves. It means choosing to make self-care a priority. The idea of self-love might feel a bit awkward, but it is not selfish. It is necessary. As we get better at self-love, we feel more confident and understand that self-love and loving others is simply a reflection of our deepest essence.
A little child thrives when she is adored and encouraged. The same is true of our inner spirit. We need to be our greatest cheerleader and supporter in life. The steps we take to give ourselves the benefit of our love and reassurance will lift our vibrational frequency, making it safer and even easier to feel love about ourselves and the world.
It begins with our thoughts and our intention to stay in a loving, accepting place with ourselves, honoring the tender innocence within us. Often all it takes is the willingness to give to us the compassion and kindness that we truly deserve.
Know that you are totally lovable and worthy of all that is good. If that does not resonate with you, here is an easy three-step process to change your thinking:
1. Place your hand on your heart and breathe.
2. Now into your heart, on the in-breath, receive Love and Compassion from the Source of all Life, from the Angels, and most of all, from yourself.
3. Exhale, then check inside and notice how much better you feel.
May I always remember how much I deserve love. Help me to bring that love into my heart and use it to care for myself in new and empowering ways. May I be as patient with myself as I am with a kitten and take care of myself in the same way.
Inspire within me compassion and respect for all life and especially help me to be accepting and compassionate with me. May I remember that as I give more love to myself, the way opens so that all of humanity will have the ability to give themselves more love.
From that place of Love in our hearts, all of life benefits. And so it is.
Give yourself a fast from negative thoughts about yourself.
Message From AA Gabriel .....
You are being asked to give yourself a fast from negative thoughts about who you think you are. Nothing wears down your sense of self more than this type of negative thinking. It is debilitating in every way. This is a good place to start in order to affect other areas of your life.
A fast is a period in which you refrain from some activity. Most people are familiar with a food fast, which allows the digestive system a period of recovery. The same is true for a mental fast. It gives your mind time to recover so you can begin to see the truth in your life without judgment.
The judgmental mind is relentless, constantly seeking out inadequacies to bring them to your awareness. Although shining light into the dark corners of your mind is beneficial, bombarding yourself with negative thoughts, even if you believe them to be true, serves no good purpose.
So what can you do when incessant thoughts such as, "I should have done better," "I'm not good enough," and other negative impressions of your personal character that begin in your mind?
Go to God first. Ask to know the truth clearly within yourself. Call on the Angels to illuminate your mind with Love and Light. Ask for peace in your heart and then offer all your thoughts to the Divine Mind.
During your meditations and prayers, take time to visualize these as limiting thoughts you no longer need. Place them in a box and do something creative with them. Sink them to the bottom of the ocean. Send them to heaven in a colorful balloon. Explode them like a fireworks display or put them on a shelf somewhere in your mind's attic. Find an image that works for you and purposefully send the negative thoughts out of your conscious mind.
It is a law of nature that empty spaces become quickly filled, so remember to fill your now empty mind with light. Light is love energy from the Source of all life. Light contains the seeds of truth that will stimulate loving thoughts. You can elaborate on this by imagining that your mind is a golden chalice being filled with God's love.
Repeat this entire process as often as needed until you are no longer willing to tear yourself down and treat yourself unkindly. Instead, see yourself as you truly are — a beloved child of God; a spirit in human form; a clear vessel able to hold the highest possible level of truth; a beautiful, loving being shining Love into the world.
You can also turn these statements of truth into affirmations or statements of "I AM," and they will become potent reminders, enabling you to strengthen you connection to your divine essence. There is great power in the words "I AM". You can substitute these or similar affirmations whenever you notice your mind engaged in negative self-talk. Here are some examples:
I AM one with God. I AM peaceful and loving. I AM aligned with my Soul Purpose. I AM inspired with thoughts which serve my highest good. I AM relaxed and at peace. I AM enjoying an abundant lifestyle. I AM offering all my work to the Divine Presence and I AM fulfilled.
Have these or other phrases ready to quickly turn to, as soon as you notice negative thoughts creeping in. Don't worry if you don't believe your words at first. This is just the resistance of old habits of thought, and these habits can be changed.
Begin now to treat yourself with kindness and compassion. Remember that you are profoundly loved. Know that Angels embrace you in wings of pure light and see you as a beautiful, radiant spirit here to bring love to the world. This is who you really are, so please remember your guidance from Archangel Gabriel for today:
Give yourself a fast from negative thoughts about yourself.
