September 7, 1997

The evening began with Lea addressing the group as follows:

I am forty-one years old, and I have been doing this work for about twelve or thirteen of those years? I don’t very often tell how it came about and what it’s about, and I really felt that it was important for some reason tonight to tell that. There’s so much change that’s been going on lately, and I think sometimes it’s easy to forget where things came from. I think particularly with an organization like Phoenix where we have such a family–I love the announcements about, Come join your Phoenix family, and I was thinking whether you know they’re your family or not, come join them, make them your family, because it is such a wonderful and unique kind of experience that we have with one another. It’s truly very, very special. And I think that as we are dealing with that fun, special part of it that it is now, it’s sometimes easy to forget, especially those of us that have been around for a long time, how this came about. Now and again I have to remind myself how this came about and I wanted to share that story with you.

I grew up a Southern Baptist, which I think is a really nice way to grow up. My parents were happy, we lived in San Antonio, Texas. My father was in the army, and when he went to Vietnam and came home, life was as it was for so many people during that time: radically altered for him. And because it was so altered for him, part of what happened–and it’s not a major part of the story that I’ll go into detail with, but my parents ended up getting a divorce, and what I ended up doing, which I think is the point, is I got real involved in a different kind of father figure. I got real involved in a youth group, in a Christian youth group, and ended up finishing school early and going to Bible College. It was an independent Bible College in south Florida where what mainly you did when you got out of it was you started your own ministries of different kinds, and that was the intention of the man that I married, who was a fellow student. I was eighteen, he was twenty. [Laughing] He was an older man. I was a much younger woman. And we moved to Kentucky from Florida, and probably something that happens a whole lot of times with people who get married when they’re eighteen years old and have lived up until that time in a very unique kind of environment is we ended up finding that we sort of grew apart, that as we continued to grow up we had fewer and fewer things in common. I really wasn’t real suited to be a minister’s wife. Gosh, who’d have guessed. And as it turned out, bless his heart, he wasn’t even wanting to be a minister. He was doing it because his father was, and it just was kind of an unhappy occasion.

And to make a long story short, three years later, after our divorce, I married Frank, and a couple years after that Stuart came into our lives. When I married Frank I had an opportunity for the first time since my parents’ divorce to be able to kind of think, What do I want to do with my life? I wasn’t particularly trained to do anything except stop you on street corners and quote verses at you which … that’s okay, too; it just doesn’t necessarily put food on the table. And with Frank I had the opportunity to explore. And one of the things I did, thinking I was going to be taking a trip home to Texas to visit family, I took a side trip to this organization that taught you how to do a kind of a meditation technique that really was designed to teach you how to use your mind better, how to figure out what you wanted in life. And I liked the technique; it was easy, it’s a lot of fun and it really allowed me to relieve stress. Now keep in mind that twelve years ago or thirteen years ago, relieving stress wasn’t as big a deal as it is now, not because we were less stressful people, but the idea of doing things–you know, biofeedback sorts of things that would help you relieve stress–was just unheard of around here.

So I went home, taught it to Frank, and would practice the meditation. And after a couple of months of this, one Sunday afternoon in the middle of one of these meditation practices I lost the train of my thought. I forgot what I was saying, and of course you who know me know that that, too, is not particularly unusual. And I opened up my eyes and I said to Frank, “I’m sorry. I forgot what I was saying.” And he had the most incredible look on his face, and he said, “You’re not going to believe this.” Because forty-five minutes had passed and Samuel had introduced himself for the first time.

Now I went through what my background was in order for you to be able to relate to what I felt at that time. I did not have any form of alternative spirituality–New Age, any word like that–background at all. In fact my background told me that I had two choices right then. Well, I guess I had three choices right then. One choice was to believe that I was nuts, that I had just some sort of split personality. And at that time Sybil was a real big thing, and she was from Lexington, and I used to say, “Maybe it’s in the water.” The other choice, of course, with the background that I had, very fundamental, was that I was maybe possessed and something terrible was happening, because also movies were out with that very same idea going on. And it frightened me. But the third choice that was available there was to look at the man whom I loved and trusted implicitly, my conservative lawyer husband–not that he was so conservative, but his law firm was–who was one of the most intelligent people I knew, and he was deeply touched. He was very moved by what he heard.

Well, what was it he heard and what was it he saw when Samuel first came through? Not a whole lot different than what you’re going to see and experience in a few minutes, with a couple of exceptions. One of them is you can understand Samuel a whole lot better now. If you’ve had the opportunity to go to the Resource Center and listen to some of those early tapes, you know how hard he was to understand. He says now that after all these years of working in my body, he sort of has a Texas-Scottish brogue. It’s not so much a Scottish brogue, but even with the brogue being so much less, half the time then he used words that no one knew what he was talking about, and it really wasn’t until much later, when somebody gave us the information that they were from Britain and they were into old languages or something, and at any rate he said, “This brogue is from a little island off the coast of Scotland. It’s very unique, very specific.” And we just sort of smiled and said, “Is it Aran?” Because Samuel had said that the personality he was using in order to give us something to relate to was from this little island off the coast of Scotland called Aran. Later we went to that little island, and it was just a wonderful experience, but it was something that he did to give us something to latch on to.

And that’s another thing that was very different. Samuel transforms me, and although in many ways channeling has been around in one way or another since the beginning of time, even in our own lives the recognition that now and again we channel our higher self, or we recognize that the muses are helping us write something, or maybe even when we pray and receive answers and have just the right words to say what it is, and we recognize that however we might say it, we are allowing a higher power to use us, even that isn’t quite the same as what you will see in a few moments when you experience Samuel. Because what he does is he transforms my body.

I’ll tell you this sort of as a little bit of a joke: Samuel uses a masculine persona–and of course spirit is not masculine, nor is it feminine, it doesn’t have names. Samuel means messenger and we use that because he’s a messenger. He’s real big about saying It’s not the messenger, it’s the message. So what do we do, we call him “messenger”? And that there isn’t a masculine sense that has to be put across either, but Samuel very definitely uses a masculine kind of name- persona-personality, and when he first was using me, I would always wear skirts until the time came that he was talking to someone who … actually he later became a Supreme Court Judge for the State of Kentucky, but afterwards he said to me, “Darling, I don’t think you should wear a skirt. Samuel throws it up over your shoulder.” One more thing in the great experience.

What helped me first was Frank, Frank being extremely touched and very trusting. The other thing that helped me was my natural curiosity that was able to put some sort of balance between my–I hope you can understand–natural kind of fear. You know, “What is this? I don’t know anything about this. I have no idea what this is.” And so I called my best friend and I said, “Gwen, something’s happened. Why don’t you come over and let’s see if it happens again?” And she was the one, actually, who said, “This is called channeling.” And that started us exploring what is this and what’s it about?

Out on the table we have all kinds of information, you know, who is Samuel and what is this about? And experiences that people had that you can talk to in this room and other places that can tell you their experience of Samuel, because inevitably people say they feel him. In a room of three or four hundred people at expos and things, we’ve had people come up from the back of the room and say, “Samuel was talking just to me. And I know he was because I was saying things in my head, and he was answering it.” And I don’t mention that several people in the room have already said the very same thing. People have an experience with him like they know him, like he’s an old friend. And that’s another thing that really helped me, because he has always been very, very clear that he’s not here to be our guru. He’s not here to be our great teacher, that we must all follow everything he says. In fact, he says if what he’s saying doesn’t resonate with you, don’t waste your time. There’s not enough time here to waste.

But indeed what happens instead is that we feel like we’re talking to a friend. The unconditional love is amazing and it touches people. And because I don’t remember what has been said–apparently I’ve just chosen to not know, because I don’t remember when people tell me what he has said–I am always so touched and amazed by the beauty and incredible love and the downright practicality of what it is he’s saying. He won’t be our guru, he says; however, he will be our friend. And that he’s here to help us remember. Well, of course, you know with my background, all right, what is he here to help us remember? And what he says he’s here to help us remember is that we are magnificent beings of love and light and that we have come here because we know that we’re here to help the planet. And inevitably the people who are drawn to this work are people who, even in their real world jobs, are doing things that help the planet. In their everyday lives, they’re people who grew up knowing that there was more out there and that they wanted to be a part of helping the world become a better place.

It’s very, very much a comfort to me as well to find that Samuel always worked very carefully not to destroy my personal mythology, meaning that he didn’t work to try to confront any of the things that I believed or knew were true, and in fact very gently and very kindly helped me personally move from an extremely narrow view–I mean can you imagine how narrow my view was of what was right and wrong in this world, and what was spiritual and not spiritual and what was good and what was not good, because of my background?–and to help me move from a very narrow and intolerant view to one that became extremely aware that the force of change in this world is love. And that it doesn’t matter in the big picture the path you choose to take that brings you there, but that you follow your inward duty to find that path and follow it.

We say around here–Samuel says very clearly that he’s not the path, and that in fact he says that he’s not a path. And it’s that willingness to allow constant free will, even though he makes horrible jokes about it all the time–“I didn’t vote for free will,” he says, “you did”–that very, very lovingly he teaches us that we don’t have excuses for not being the best we can be, where we are, with what we have at the moment. That we don’t have excuses for not living love in this world, and that by doing so we will become examples to others and that it will open us up to love and attention, which can be scary, and gratification–deep heartfelt joy.

The people who are drawn to this work are the people I am very, very proud to call family and friends, because they’re people who understand that same kind of connection. To live the world from the heart is very, very different than living it from the head, and it’s much more satisfying.

Phoenix Institute started out in my living room with one person getting in touch with another person, getting in touch with another person to see if it would happen again, and eventually, over time, we grew out of that living room and another, and after meeting in churches and hotels, eventually, because of the huge volunteer base not only in Lexington, Kentucky–for whom we are kind of their best kept secret aren’t we?–but literally because of the newsletter, because of work through Earthlight that we’ve done in Europe and Canada, and across the United States, this work touches the world. And it’s a remarkable, wonderful work. And we now have this building here on Lima Drive, and pretty soon an open house so that other people can experience it too.

People say sometimes, “Not everybody is ready for channeling. What are you going to do about that? You know, you’re not going to have ten thousand people coming to hear Samuel speak.” And that’s the point. That’s exactly the point. That’s right, we’re not. That’s not what we’re about here, because the ten thousand people who would come to hear Samuel would do what I know I certainly did for most of my life, and that is a whole lot of them would just sort of put one more bit of information up on the shelf and come back to it some other time, and that would be the end of it.

What Phoenix is about is training those people who can go out into the world, because they can’t help but do anything else, and by going out in the world they are the ones who are the teachers and the ones who speak to the garden clubs about having fairy gardens and organic vegetables, and who talk to the people who work with disturbed children and families in trouble, and talk to them about how to learn to love themselves and how to make their own families and their own lives better, because the teachings work.

I am so glad that you are here. I’m glad that you are here because I believe that not only Phoenix Institute–and not only this world, particularly as we’ve been able to see this week–is in massive change, but that we are, too. And I truly, truly believe that you are here or you are hearing this because you are a part of the answer.

Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for coming, thank you for allowing yourself with an open heart and an open mind–but not so open your brains fell out, as Samuel says–to come here and experience a real practical system of living love. It has transformed my life, and as you will see in a few minutes, it is transforming my very body at the same time, but more than that it transforms those who hear it, as well. Thanks and enjoy.

And I’m about ninety-nine percent sure that tonight’s going to be questions and answers. So have fun. Bye.

Lea settled back in her chair and quited herself, and soon Samuel entered.

Samuel: Well greetings, dears.

Hi, Samuel.

S: Good. How about a bit of gifting—if you have a gift you’d like to share or some energy you’d like to receive. Aye. That was fast.

I’d like some energy. I’m having knee surgery on my left knee in the morning at about nine o’clock. If people could send energy that direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

S: There is no time, there is no space, send it now, send it then, send it later. And think good healing. Good. More.

I would also like energy for what feels like a hyper-extended knee in the back. I’ve got a dance workshop coming up and I need some special stuff.

S: Aye. Dancers hate it when their body starts giving out. Good. Good. Is right knee?

Right knee.

S: All right. More. Aye.

I’d like some energy sent out for my right arm.

S: More: because …?

Because I cut it.

S: Cut it? Tried to cut it off!

Yes. Right.

S: And that is healing of the nerves, and the tendons, and the tissue.

And the arteries and the …

S: And the stress that goes with it.

Oh, yes. Yeah, and the stress.

S: Aye. Good. Good. That’s three lines of healing there. Do I have four?

Yesterday morning Bob took our decrepit old truck up to pick up his son’s things in Kent, Ohio, and bring him down to live on our property. And they called […] from Columbus, Ohio, where the truck had broken down. And they don’t know what’s wrong with it, because mechanics don’t work Sundays, so Bob could use some energy.

S: That’s good. That’s good. Aye.

And I could use energy when he gets home. [Laughter]

S: When they both do.

Yes. Thank you.

S: Aye. Yes. Aye. Good. More.

I’ll make a fourth. My left heel is sore and I’m starting into the active part of my season for field hockey, so I need to have it strong and healthy, and not sore.

S: Aye.

Run quickly.

S: And Suzie’s left heel. So why don’t you allow just a moment for you to think about those five requests thus far, and give a brief look around at everyone else who’s raising their hand, and did not say that they needed something specific but do. There. You see. For healing. For help with something particular. And allow your thoughts to go toward an asking for whatever they need for the highest good to come their way or for you to allow yourself to be a channel of energy, of healing for their body to use in the best possible fashion, because your thought has an effect. And the intent of your thought allows that energy to manifest that much more quickly when it is combined with others who have that same intent.

Now, who’s had a blessing or two to share, just as a reminder that this sort of thing does work? A few victories that go with it.

I had a really neat opportunity to go to a business trip, but also at the same time get to experience the earth in a beautiful, natural place in Mammoth Cave, going over three hundred feet down into the earth.

S: Like caves, do you?

Well, for a while. Not for a long time. I like the light, too. But it was a wonderful opportunity to experience the energy of the earth, being inside the earth, quite far down in it. And merging with that energy. And it was very sacred and very powerful, and I’m grateful for that opportunity.

S: Aye. And of course you know that your great-great-great-greats considered caves to be holy places. Not so very long ago, when one particular version of belief or another was not in favor, they were often made temples or chapels. And further back than that, they’d been recognized as the womb of the earth itself, and even considered doorways to other worlds. Good. More. Aye.

David and I just got a little puppy, and I’m really thankful because it’s …

S: Proud parents, are you?

Yes. It’s such a source of laughter and fun and joy and love in our lives. It’s just wonderful to have him.

S: Aye. Very nice. Aye.

I’m sitting here trying to remember how long ago it was, but I think it’s been six years ago I broke my back pretty severely, and it’s been a long time healing, and it’s never really been right. Within the last six months, there’s been a significant shift within my physical body, and my back doesn’t feel odd any more, and you can’t feel all those funny protrusions from where it’s broken. And it doesn’t have any pain, and I have a lot more flexibility, and it’s just a real wonderful gift. You don’t appreciate, you know, until … when you’re in pain, it’s there all of the time and you think about it. And then it’s gone, and you know you don’t appreciate it when it’s gone, because it’s gone and you don’t think about it any more. And yet, in retrospect, it’s a wonderful gift not to have it.

S: Aye. Now, a quick question, love: Have you done anything to help that healing process along?

Oh, yes. A lot.

S: Good. And that’s my point there. All sorts of things. You have consciously and purposefully given your body wheels. Now what do I mean by that? You’ve given your body a vehicle for the healing to work through. Because to simply say, “all right, heal me now, heal me, heal me, heal me,” it will happen, won’t it? You know it’s so. You’ve seen it happen. It will happen, but sometimes it takes so long for it to come about that way that you’ve fairly well given up. You’ve gone on to something else. Because the Universe has a much easier time directing something that’s already moving to be working in a process that’s already working toward healing and strengthening, to be working with somebody whose attitude is that of, “I will be doing everything I can. The best I can, where I am with what I have. I will not let my body let go. I will find what it can do at this level, and raise it to another, and at that level and see it can do.” You might call it putting feet on it. I think of it as putting wheels on it. And that’s what it takes. Good work. Good work. One more. Aye.

I have some really … I have a gift, and that’s the support people in my life who are there for me. But the gift is that I’ve finally decided to allow them to be in my life to be supportive. So I’m grateful for that, and I’m grateful for my choice.

S: Aye. Aye. It’s a very hard thing in your world, isn’t it? Because you finally reach that point where you’re independent and successful and happy, and of course that means you have to do it all yourself. That support means there’s something wrong with you. Well, that’s what this world tries to tell you, doesn’t it? Or at least that’s what you bought one time or another.

Now, I have a quick question that turns that around just the slightest bit. Individuals who are lovers—and by that I do not mean have intimate relationships with other people in the sense of some sort of physical experience, although that may be in there as well—I mean who love well, who choose to love. Individuals who are lovers naturally give that love. Now, looking at your life, would you say that you fit into one of those categories? That you are an individual who loves? That you are an individual who gives? Gives of yourself. Perhaps you might even remember a time—maybe up until about three minutes ago—in which you gave and gave and gave and gave, perhaps to your exhaustion, because giving and loving is very natural to you.

If somebody refused your love, that would not be pleasant, would it? That in fact it’s a gift when somebody who naturally loves is able to find somebody who’s able to receive. And it is important, my friends, that you do allow yourself to remember now and again that it’s quite a gift that another can have when they allow themselves the experience of opening their life to others to allow themselves a support system instead of being a support for everyone else. That allows themselves to receive. And just as you might be one of those needing to learn to receive, you might also be one of those needing to learn that those you give to need to give back as well. And it’s a gift that work both ways. Aye.

You’ve had a lot of change in your world, and your planet has been putting out an amazing amount of light, in fact, so much so that one might consider that mass consciousness as a whole had quite an awakening over your last few hours, days, weeks. And I wanted to spend a little bit of time talking about that. And it was my desire to do it in the form of questions and answers, because ultimately the bottom line to everything is, Recalibration has changed the blueprint of everything that’s going on on your planet right now. And your awareness of it allows you to both receive that energy and be able to give it in a healing, helping, loving fashion in whatever way is most needed at the time.

But I think that, first, for questions and answers it’s got to begin with me asking you a couple of questions, and that should be a very basic beginning. Why is it that every question can ultimately come down to Recalibration? What is Recalibration? And what is the bottom line that’s big enough that everything can come down to it? What’s the point there? Anybody? Everybody? Several bodies.


S: Love, yes. Recalibration is ultimately about love. Let’s try to be a bit more specific.

Recalibration was the times, you said, when the blueprint of this dimension was changed, and that change was a shifting from being a planet of Love Wisdom to a planet of Active Intelligence/Intelligent Activity. So we’re going to be seeing a lot more change coming through, and learning through action, through being aware of action, through the intellectualizing of what we’ve seen, and from what we’ve done and what others have done.

S: Ultimately, mass consciousness on the planet has changed to a point that, rather than everything you are to do is to come from a place of love and that you are to be loving—which is true and has not changed; it’s still a foundation—to a time of action. That love in action. Living the love rather than just thinking about it. Rather than simply knowing that you are a being of love, putting it out there in the world and doing something with it, because by consciously putting forth loving activity, your world is going to change. How?

The whole atmosphere changes when you put something out there now, since Recalibration. It’s magnified to the point that you can experience the change almost immediately, which is gratifying to you and gratifying to another.

S: Excellent. Because very obviously in one sense what goes on with you in your world is going to have an effect around you in your world. And so by your consciously living love or acting in love, that’s going to have an effect in your world around you. Stuart?

Well, it’s a like a smile is contagious. You smile at somebody that you pass, and then it uplifts their spirits and then the next person they see they smile to, and so it has a logarithmic effect. It keeps multiplying.

S: Good.

And so by taking action, it’s not only serving at that moment, but it’s also serving as an example to others, because you have said that our actions speak louder than our words. So taking that love and acting with it consciously lets other people see that it can be done.

S: And ultimately the movement, the change from the foundational construct of knowing love to being love is showing up in your world how?

Well, I was just thinking of this past week, that we have lost two great examples of people who were using Third Ray energy with [Princess] Diana’s death and Mother Theresa’s. Two people who embodied service and taking action. And they were examples, but at the same time while they were still living they were doing it, in a sense. And now with their passing, it’s like it’s been handed over more to everyone to try to fill the shoes that are now empty with their loss.

S: So, one example you are saying then is in the world with the two recent losses of individuals that mass consciousness has considered very loving epitomes, there is a desire to fulfill the legacy, to continue the work. To do, rather than—as would have been in the past, perhaps—to say, Oh, how sad.

All right, let’s keep going.

Just as a little aside here. I’d like to remind you that although it’s extremely true that you have lost two very great lights in your world, in this week you’ve lost a lot more than two. And it is important to remember that it’s not those out in the forefront all the time that are making the greatest difference, although they have indeed made a very great difference, but it’s the consistent living of it that is such a remarkable unknown in this world that those who do it tend to end up in the forefront. You might not be in the forefront of the news of the world with your living of love, but I promise you, beloved ones, that by your choosing to live love you will be in the forefront of your personal world, because this world hardly knows what to do with someone who freely and generously gives. They tend to follow them around like puppies. They tend to honor them and be amazed. They tend to elevate them and put them on pedestals. They tend to desire to make their life like theirs.

Recalibration is about shifting into place in which the awareness is putting it into action. And the action ultimately, bottom line, is love. And what I asked was, What are the things that you are seeing as a result of it?

One of the things is people wanted to bring flowers, they wanted to do something. That in order to …

S: Good.

… the love was there with the flowers.

S: Huge outpourings of physical-world showing of love. All right, that’s something that’s going on.

I think it’s awakening people to the beauty of life on another level, because Diana’s death particularly was so violent and it seemed so senseless, and yet when you hear people in the street, what they’re talking about is the beauty that she brought about, and how they want their children to experience, and why they brought them, why they came. And I think it’s what’s hauntingly beautiful about this life, that we’re struggling to see through the recalibrated eyes, I guess, and through them into this week.

S: Aye, I hope. How about just as a loss, a death, is opening doors, symbolically speaking, your world is experiencing all sorts of deaths as a result of Recalibration. If a major construct such as a society based on simply learning love has moved now to a desire to express it, to act it out, a construct that major, that too will have ripples, parallels in which other constructs are breaking down as well. And you are seeing that.

I think one of the most … well, all of this whole week in Britain was astonishing, but …

S: This whole nine months has been astonishing.

It has. It’s been particularly astonishing in that the love that was demanded by the people of the British throne to be shown and that they had shown, because of Diana’s death.

S: Okay, so the construct of behavior about the monarchy, and perhaps even the monarchy itself is under reconstruction. And you are finding generally in your world right now governments are not particularly settled right now, are they? Economies are not particularly settled right now, are they? The massive constructs of your planet are changing, whether that be because the old has passed away, making way for the new, or because the new has become newer, which is essentially the same thing, isn’t it? We now know this. We now know this.

And in your lives personally you’re seeing it as well: your relationships, what satisfies you these days, what has been the foundation of what you always wanted to do, your work, your friends. You’re not who you were. Thank goodness. And the promise is that you will have the wonderful opportunity of treading water until you drown if you do not keep up with the changes, because it is your resistance to moving forward into action from simply knowing what a good, powerful, spiritual individual you are, moving you into action, living that love consciously in this world, serving this planet, loving those people that are drawn to you, that surround you. It is only by taking action that you’re going to be able to move out of the mire to stop treading water, to move out of resistance.

Now, it is with that as a foundation, Æecalibration that’s on very many of your minds because of a very radical change that you have seen due to the loss of a couple of individuals who have actively lived love. Not who were saints, mind you, but who are remembered for giving. And, you know, I do need to take a moment to remind you of that. Looking at beloved Diana’s life, she who has experienced so many interesting circumstances, who—however you choose to look at it, from whichever perspective you want to see it—has had times that could perhaps not be considered particularly saintly in the circle of friends she ran with. And yet, what the world is choosing to look at goes to prove the point that I have for you, my darlings: This world is not looking for somebody who can manage everything perfectly, who has whittled their life down to one or two things that they get out of bed for, because those are the things that they are safe with because they know they’ll do it right and can therefore control it and manipulate it to become okay by their standards. The world is not looking for somebody who never falls. The world can’t relate to that person. The world is not looking for somebody who never cries, who never gets angry, who never lives in this world. The world is looking for somebody who, when they fall, they get back up and keep moving. Who, when they cry, take a deep breath and wipe their tears and say, “There is yet tomorrow.” Who when things look bleak, are willing to reach out to others, because they have found that by giving they can both forget for a time and gain perspective, because loving heals.

The world wants to make as hero not the perfect angelic being that nobody can relate to, but the one who is out there in the trenches, be they the trenches of the poorest of the poor, or the absolute trenches of the glittery glamorous. Who’s out there in the trenches giving love, and getting back up and doing it again, and getting back up and going it again. Your excuses are not what gives people the confidence to follow you. It’s that you’re willing to get back up and keep going. That’s what they remember. And I think that your world’s doing a lot to prove that this week.

Now, in your life you too have been seeing changes. Perhaps you’ve been noticing patterns in your life, and believe me you are an example. The sorts of things that go on with you are the sorts of things that are going on in the lives of others as well. You’re not here to have your own little cave and your own little life. The things that you … [whining] “Oh, but Samiel, I want my little cave. I like being a hermit!” The things that are going on in your life and the questions that you have about how best to handle the situations that you’re experiencing in your world are the things that others are experiencing as well, and can take wisdom from.

So I was wondering if this group would not play a bit of a game with me here. And that’s the game of proving your wisdom, because, although I will add to some of those answers, I’d like for you to ask hypothetical questions, of course, that you’ve seen in those people around you who are undergoing particular circumstances, perhaps in relationships or communication or things that you’ve noticed that seem to have come up in a Recalibration sort of way, and that you’re wondering if anyone else has noticed, and how they’ve been handling such things. Because this is a group that’s sort of like an octopus, if you will. It’s one great heart with many, many outreaches. Many people, one heart.

So, any questions? Any things you’ve seen? Set me up, go ahead. Aye.

I’m seeing a lot of mental illness, certified and not certified. Is anybody else? I mean serious mental illness.

S: And there are those here who are counsellors and work in that direction. Are you seeing higher levels of that sort of difficulty around you? Or is it just something that is going on in your own family and your own self and you’re trying very hard not to mention it out loud? Others are noticing it as well. Now, what do you think that’s about? We’ve discussed somewhat of that as a means of saying this is the sort of thing that you might be seeing with Recalibration. What’s that about? Who remembers? Aye.

With Recalibration there’s a greater vibrational energy coming in, a greater pressure of energy coming in, and I think some people just translate that into their own version of, you know, this is how I’m going to deal with that greater energy.

S: That’s good. That’s good. Some individuals are unable to deal with change. And change is happening all around them. And there are parts of their lives that they do not feel they are in control of anymore, and they might be feeling so much a failure because of that. They do not have the skills to flow or the internal strength to manifest the best out of the situation, or the technology that you do have. Individuals are responding very often with…. Could you come up with one word perhaps, that often shows up as …


S: That often shows up as confusion. What word might that be. And I’ll give you a hint. It’s the other side of love.


S: Fear. And the fear creates a sense of powerlessness. And it is a sense of powerlessness, and the response to that that can create the biochemical imbalance because of the thought process. Anybody on the edge takes the leap. And that’s part of why it’s so important that you be out there now living love, because there are those who so desperately need what you know. And what are the sorts of things that you know that could help individuals who are in fear and confused. Maybe so much to the point that their biochemistry is off. Maybe so much to the point that they are certifiable these days. What are the sorts of things you know that are helpful?

Looking for new solutions. People seem to be more open because the old stuff is crumbling for mass consciousness the same as it is for anyone else. And I’ve noticed that the people with whom I work are really much more open to looking within themselves. Usually, before, they wanted me to tell them, and now people are open to exploring.

S: Good.

More than they were before.

S: So use that there is an energy out there of seeking solutions and help them find choices, if that’s possible. Look for choices; that’s always important. It’s not, It’s here or it’s here. There is that whole spectrum in between and then a few that are thrown in just for fun. And the ability to recognize choices is taking power. It’s freedom. Good. Aye.

Well, I’m not being just silly, but we know great psychiatrists and counsellors we can refer them to.

S: Absolutely.

People who’ve had the experience, and the people we’ve known and perhaps ourselves; we have undergone this type of help and can give the confidence and the experiential support to help them see it.

S: Excellent. Excellent. Encourage individuals to seek help, because it’s out there, and that again opens doors. Gets help. Good.

I would encourage those helpers to be what I heard recently from one of them: more listeners, because some of the greatest healing occurs when the talker hears himself talking.

S: Good.


S: So as a helper remember to be a listener, to help that way. But you have technology that can help them. What are those technologies? How can you help somebody that’s in fear and feeling powerless?

Well, you can help them to see that by personifying that fear and making a friend of it they will have a better understanding of it, and it becomes lessened when you do that.

S: Good. A very simple technology of personifying the fear. Making a friend of it that you might be able to understand what it’s about. Have an internal communication with it. Fear, what are you about? What might you call this? Now, in a workshop that whole process was expressed. Anybody remember the step-by-step process? First you acknowledge it. Here is what it is. You recognize it, and then you name it. Give it a silly name. Don’t name it after your mother, or every time you think of your mother you’re going to think, crazy mother. Think of a silly name. Perhaps an alliteration like …

Wanda Worry.

S: Wanda worry, as long as you do not know somebody named Wanda. Aye. Wanda Worry. Now here I am Wanda, I’m worrying again. Now, what’s that’s about? Why am I worrying? And allow that worry to talk to you. By personifying it you’re giving yourself a silly little mind game that you can relate to that gives words to your internal knowing. That’s what that’s about. That’s the non-professional terms for it. Give voice to your internal knowing in order then that you can understand what? Not how it’s wronged you, but how it’s helped you. Wanda, darling, your worry is sort of making me nuts right now, but I do recognize that you’re there for a reason. You’re there to protect me from danger, aren’t you? And by talking to it and understanding why it’s been there in your life, you then can allow yourself an understanding not to resist, which creates an energy that draws to you more energy, much like the same. Like is attracted to like; that’s your physics. But instead it allows you to not fear it, to not feel yourself a failure because of it, to recognize its place in your life. And then to begin doing what?

Changing it.

Replacing it.

S: Changing it. Replacing it. Absolutely right. Well, I recognize the worry and I recognize that you’re trying to protect me from danger, so let’s look at what’s really going on here. What’s truly happening? And this sort of self-talk, if nothing else, allows you to put the worries onto a level that feels handle-able. Bit by bit by bit, looking it over, thinking it through.

But on an even greater level it has the opportunity of doing more than that. It gives you the opportunity to find solutions to those problems, to understand what’s behind the outward show, the emotional reaction. It allows the opportunity to understand where it’s coming from and therefore be able to say, “Actually this isn’t a situation that requires worry, because it’s in really good hands. So let’s save that worry, Wanda, for tomorrow and something else. All right?” And as silly as it might sounds, it works. It actually works, especially with people who are in particularly dire straits, because it’s giving them an option. So, sure, that’s something that one can do with fear.

What are other things you can do for empowerment in your life?

Focus on what’s working.

S: Yes. Yes.

Sometimes people get in overwhelm because they’re seeing what’s not working, and in kind of … just seeing that. And when you can focus on what’s working in the moment, even if it’s small, step by step looking for more, that energy will draw more of that like energy to where life brightens and there’s more light shed on the problems and more strength to deal with it. And more esteem to help carry one through out of your overwhelm more into the line of what you want.

S: One of the things that happens in so many individual’s lives as they grow up is that they find out that the way to fit in with the group that they need to fit in with, the people at work or their family, is that they have to learn how to gripe and complain readily and well. In order to be one of the guys, they’ve got to be able to just talk about how awful it is where they’re working. Or how terrible the boss is, or how bad the parents are, or on and on and on it goes. It becomes a natural response to be negative, to be keenly, personally and absolutely in pure “sense-surround”, aware of every slight, of every sting and arrow that has come your way. To harbor every ancient wound and make sure it doesn’t quite heal because you might need it for evidence later on down the road, and to be able to give you something to talk to most people about. Whereas what it does to you is it let’s you eat the same slop they are, which allows you to grow the same piggy way. And I mean that, because what goes in is what you become. It is true, beloved ones, it is absolutely true that this world will not meet all of your expectations. Darn! Don’t you hate it when that happens? But you know, my darling, maybe it’s not the world; maybe it’s your expectations. I have done everything right. I have been the most perfect being of light and love, and look what happened here. I never expected to get fired from my job, because I’m such a nice person. That just does not make sense at all, does it? Right. That was the reason. There are things that will happen in your world that indeed will make it seem as though you’re on top of the world at one moment and swimming under water and needing breath the next. And I call it a roller coaster and I tell you not to fight it but to enjoy the ride, because it’s not, my darlings, that all of these awful things are happening to you. They’re not. It’s your reactions that determine how awful they are to you. And you know exactly what I’m talking about, because you know people in your life, two people that have the same thing happen to them. One of them is absolutely living in the gutter because of it, and the other one keeps going, moves out, moves up and keeps on. What’s the difference? What’s the difference there?


S: Motivation, yes.


S: Perspective, yes.

Your beliefs.

S: Your beliefs. Yes. Because whatever it is that gets handed to you at any time—from the world, from the Source, it does not matter—it’s not what gets handed to you, beloved ones, it’s what you do with it. There’s only one thing that you can control in this world, you know, and it’s not what gets handed to you. If I am very, very good I will get to do this. If I behave in this fashion and do everything that Samiel has said, then I will have a perfect life of happiness and goodness. Right. It is how you respond that you are in charge of. Do you choose to display your pain and make sure that everybody’s fully aware and hopefully experiencing it as well, so that they’ll understand why you’re behaving as you are? Must you get angry and really showy about it because you’ve learned that nobody pays attention to you, so you have to get louder and meaner and louder and meaner? Are you a manipulative bully? If you got it, you probably give it, by the way. It’s what happens. And you can stop that, because you’re in charge of your life. And your life is, by the way, the actions you choose to take based upon what it is that comes to you. Your life truly is the journey, not the destination. Truly, truly. And you can share that with others.

What makes up your reactions? Your beliefs. This should not happen to somebody as good as I. If only I had done this, this would not have happened. I am the lowliest worm. I am a being of love who believes that all things can be made to work for good, and I choose to see the best and the possible brightest outcome. And to know that because I have set forth this or something better with everything I’ve asked for in this life, and because it was not my little package of expectations that said this then something better will come about, and I choose to seek something better. That’s a bit healthier don’t you think? And those are a couple of marvelous things that can be done for self-empowerment and living love and helping others during this time.


I think that something important that all of us—that a lot of us have had to learn while we’ve been here is learning to love ourselves and learning to forgive ourselves, and if we have trouble being through years of teachings that you’ve shared with us, if we have trouble with that, people that haven’t had the teachings or the same exposure that we have, they have to have these type of foundations before they can grow with the world, too. If they don’t […] themselves or forgive themselves for being here, for whatever reason, how can they accept the world changes?

S: This world really needs you, because so many individuals do not love themselves, in fact grow up being taught that was selfish, because so many individuals do not know how to honor who they are, which is of course why they do not honor anyone else either. And whether it is these teachings that have offered that foundation of alternatives and means of recognizing how to love yourself, or be it another direction, that absolutely is the core, because if you don’t love you, how can you help anyone else love themselves and become better for it?

I’ve noticed people being forced to look at their past, their old beliefs and how things were, and I noticed that there seems to be a certain amount of sadness. How do you help the world in the light of the sadness of the way things were […]

S: I think that sadness, that grief, is a wonderful, powerful thing. I do. I think that very often in your world grief makes other people uncomfortable. Oh, you’re crying, please stop. I feel powerless when you’re crying because I don’t know what to do to help you through your grief. But grief is an expression of loss, and loss is something that happens every day for you. The biggest way to help somebody through the time of grief, first, is not to ignore it—”do not recognize it, shove it away, hope it’ll be lost on its own- -but instead recognize it. Help them label it. You’re sad, you’re feeling grief. What’s it about? What’s a sense of grief about? It may simply be a sadness of all the things that they’re aware of that are happening in the world. And I’ve got to ask you, is that a bad thing? No, indeed, that’s a good thing, because that tells you you’re talking to a bona fide aware human being. They’re able to see from a larger picture, because it is sad out there. So much heartbreak with individuals feeling powerless to do anything about it, blindly seeking the path, not realizing that they’re walking right there at it.

So recognize that their awareness of a loss is a very powerful step, a very important step. And whether it’s a loss of somebody or something or a general sense of a loss of love in the world, that awareness is a higher awareness. Recognize it. Help the building process happen by letting them know that that’s a good thing and that it leads to another thing: to be aware that losses happen all the time, because change is the constant. You’re not who you were yesterday, and part of what you’re grieving is that you’re not who you were yesterday. And that so much of the grief is not because you’re so very afraid that you’ll never have it again; it’s that you don’t know what’s going to come next. How can I live without this person? is not a question about that person, you know; it’s a question about How can I live without. And that’s where you can then reach out a hand and a heart filled with love, and start showing them how to build by the very things we’ve talked about already. How to work toward power and how to look at the many changes that they’ve had in their life already that they’ve moved on from and done better with. You’ve come so far. You’ve done so much. You can do it again.

Grief is a good thing because it is a powerful recognition. Choosing grief over healing is not. And one would choose to remain in grief because they’re afraid of the future. And a person is afraid of the future because they feel they have no power in their life. And a person has no power in their life because they believed all the old stories that say, No pain, no gain; you do all this, it’ll work. It did not work. They’re stuck. They’ve surrounded themselves with people who are lost themselves. That was a nicer way of saying losers, right? They don’t know that they’re lovable. And all because they’re doing it alone. They don’t have you, for one thing; they don’t know what you know, for another.

And what is it you know, ultimately, that helps with grief, that gives hope for the future, that helps with empowerment? It’s that you’re not alone, beloved ones. You’re not. And listen to that statement and tell your grieving to listen to that statement with their hearts. Not their head that does not see the soup can right in front of them because the label has changed, but with their heart that has them constantly seeking more because within their innermost self they know they’re not alone. And that it’s not one more class and one more guru and one more friend and one more job out there that’s going to fill that place. It’s their connection with Source that fills it. And you’re then telling them ways that you’ve made that connection. That you know you’re not alone. Things such as the victory journal that helps you trust that when you ask, it gets answered. Little things at first, bigger later. Things like being surrounded with people who have the same spiritual desires to love and seeing them as examples in your life. Allowing yourself to ask and receive. To test your boundaries. To be willing to believe.

Humans are so intolerant, but that intolerance is a protective wall around their heart, you know, and only one thing is powerful enough to break through the intolerance to openness and open heart, and that is love. Love them until they can love them. You are the hope.

One quick question more. What have you been seeing? What does this time offer? Aye.

I don’t know if it’s just that I’m seeing it more now, or whether it’s …

S: Which does have an effect.

People seem more attached to being sick. To not being well. I mean, I don’t know if the rest of their life is […] having as much control, but when they get a disease or they get something, they don’t want to get well. They want to keep it more, and identify with it more. I mean it’s … and I don’t know …

S: And perhaps at a time—and of course we’re talking specifically about those who have not brought in an illness that is a part of the blueprint as a means of what they teach through and work through, but those who have something and can actually do something about it and aren’t. Be it preventing a cold this winter and instead accepting that, Ah well, it’s going to happen; I may as well have my two colds for the year and get it over with. Or be it having the cancer you always knew you were going to get, because everyone else in your family, sure enough, had it. When you don’t want to know how powerful you are, staying sick all the time’s a really good way to prove it to yourself. That’s in there. But when your whole world is changing around you, sometimes your physical illnesses can be a comfort. Did you know that? Because you know how your body’s going to do when you get illness after illness. You know how it’s going to be for you, and it’s the only comforting construct that you’ve got left. You can rely on your sickness. And one more time, fear, powerlessness, has a lot to do with that. Aye.

I think much more openness and much more of a curiosity about our spiritual nature …

S: Absolutely.

All those …

S: Yes.

… should be the […] to …

S: […] love it. Yes! Yes! Absolutely you are making waves in your world, and that too is there. And you tend to get frustrated because the individuals that you’re talking with, that are holding on to these old constructs are where you were ten years ago. And you’ve forgotten. You’ve forgotten. And now that individuals are becoming aware of diet and exercise and not trashing your mind and your body, or meditation, of tolerance and love as a healing aspect, of the world as being much more every day than what it was thought of yesterday, of barriers constantly changing and the impossible becoming possible on a regular basis—which of course scares the life out of a lot of people, sometimes literally—it opens doors, because, beloved ones, you know the process. And the people that only you can touch, whose words only you understand and whose answers only you can give, are all around you.

Which brings us back as a closed, full circle, to the beginning, which is, they are all around you and showing up as intolerant, aggravated, angry bigots or people in pain and illness of many different forms, or seeking, searching, carefully wondering. And there’s a part of you that relates to every one of those, isn’t there? And you’ve not been wasting your time. You are a treasure, a treasury, of jewels of wisdom, techniques that help, either as a complement to something that you know is out there in the world that they can accept or maybe as an absolute radical change, because they’ve told you that’s where they are. You know about it from them, because the Universe recognizes that you’re worthy to help. It has come into your awareness because there’s something only you can do. And that is what this time is about. Living love, putting it into action, giving yourself away. [Beeping sound] And that’s a good signal that it’s time to stop.

This is a time of love, beloved ones, and your world needs it very much. You have that love. Yours is a heart that gives. Give.
