Feb. 19, 2015 An Hour with an Angel with Sanat Kumara – Part 1/2
GD: Hello and welcome to An Hour with an Angel with Linda Dillon, the channel for the Council of Love and author of The New You and The Great Awakening. Joining her is Steve Beckow, founder of the Golden Age of Gaia and author of Building Nova Earth: Toward a World That Works For Everyone. Our guest today is Sanat Kumara.
But before we bring on our guest, Steve, we had quite a big show here just the other day on the Peace Initiative. How are you doing?
Steve Beckow: I’m doing fine, Graham. Actually I feel joyful. I feel peaceful and I’m surprised at the number of people I’ve talked to who’ve said, “Gee, I feel peaceful” or as one said, “Well you know, I haven’t led a peaceful life and yet I feel peaceful.” So I feel great, but I also feel quite tired. It was an intense build-up, an intense initiative that we took on and so, by the end of it, when the show that you’re referring to occurred I began to feel a little tired.
So, I’m going to be taking a little bit off next week, just putting my feet up and enjoying life and enjoying this peace.
That’s how I feel. How does Linda feel?
Linda Dillon: Well, you know, Steve, I think in some ways I could echo your emotions that the intensity and level of excitement and the push, the work load – because even when we’re doing something that’s incredible and joyous and we’re on purpose and mission – the after-effect, as the adrenalin starts to cool, can be this sense of spiritual exhaustion.
And I’m really glad that we’re taking time today to talk about spiritual exhaustion or just plain old exhaustion and what we do about it.
Personally, today I did something really unusual which was I rescheduled – other than our time together right now – my clients because I knew that I was at a point where I just needed that time to re-gather myself, re-gather my energies, fill-up, and that I wouldn’t be doing anybody any favors after the intensity of An Hour With An Angel to be channeling for any individual. So, it also comes to that honoring of ourselves. Graham?
GD: I agree, Linda. The road we’re on, and I say ‘we’, the ‘collective we’, is that all of us are holding in our hearts the vision of a world that we know is available to us, a world that works for everyone, where Peace and Love and unity consciousness is the theme.
And what we do, each of us and collectively, to that end can feel challenging, can feel real hard at times. I know for me, the gap between knowing what I know is available and what I see around me at times can feel really discouraging.
And these exciting opportunities to hold in our hearts what’s available to us, the potential that we have like what we did with this Peace Initiative here recently. It’s all very exciting. The build-up, the experience of it, and if we look around and say, “Gees, there’s still evidence in my mind, the way I see it, that suggests that we’re not there yet,” it can feel disappointing.
So how do we stay the course? How do we keep going? And also how do we take care of ourselves in that process? And I really like what you’re saying, Linda, taking time to be gentle with ourselves and to take a rest when we need it.
Steve, you’re taking a well-deserved, needed vacation and Linda, you’ve pulled back a little. I’ve noticed I’m doing that as well. We do need to take care of ourselves and I know sometimes we can get caught up in doing the big splashes and really going for it and really advancing this whole initiative.
I also want to honor and recognize that everything we do, even though it may not feel like a big splash is huge: holding the intent, holding the vision within our hearts, carrying that out in our day, in our world, being the change, living that which we wish to see in the world.
And of course, we’ve been talking about peace, being peaceful, embodying that. Of course, we’ve talked about as within, so without. That’s where it all starts. That’s where it’s really the central focus here and the objective is the internal work and shining it out. So, I’m really glad we’re having this discussion and we’re having this show today. Steve.
SB: Well, just before we leave, what also occurs to me, Graham is just the amount of skill that’s involved here. We were talking earlier today about the fact that, when I find myself feeling tired, I can go along for a long long time if the road is smooth and straight, but if we hit a bump in our lives, if we have some personal tragedy or something like that, then there’s this bump in the road. There’s this resistance. There’s this problem that’s come up that we can’t talk over the top of it and unless we take some time out and resolve situations like these you can’t go forward.
So we’re learning to manage both our personal lives or our own reactions to things while still needing to continue with our work. And so that kind of skill is needed.
And another skill Andrea pointed out to me is not to lose sight of all we’ve gained because we didn’t get exactly what we wanted.
In my case, that would be some very big splashy thing like swords disappearing or disintegrating. Okay, you didn’t get swords disintegrating but you got terrific impetus towards World Peace.
And we actually have visible signs like the Russians pulling back in the Ukraine. So it is actually happening and don’t lose sight of that.
So we all of us are in the process of growing up spiritually. We’re becoming mature. We’re remembering our mastery and we’re still a work in progress. We’re in a process of becoming world leaders and of building Nova Earth and we’re just learning the ropes here.
GD: We’re getting closer and closer all the time. I really appreciate what you said: it’s important to reflect and celebrate everything that we’ve accomplished and I feel, I see how we’ve expanded and the vibrational frequencies have risen on the planet and things are happening quicker. The human aspect of me, so many of us can relate to this; wants it now! And when it doesn’t happen all those human parts come up.
LD: I think you really raised a good point, Graham, when you talk about how the human stuff comes up.
And I know, as I was preparing, meditating, this morning especially, knowing that we were going to have this conversation about ‘what do we do when spiritual exhaustion hits?’ and I’m sure that many of our listeners can relate to this, but one of the things that Sanat Kumara and actually Jesus…
A quick aside, because I might forget, is that in that meditation preparation, I know we’re channeling and chatting today with Sanat Kumara, but St. Germaine came in and he said, “Well you know, this is really my bailiwick,” so even as we’re talking today and even as Sanat Kumara will be channeling, St. Germaine is with all of us, listening and participating and igniting his Violet Flame once again to really help us with this issue of spiritual exhaustion.
You know the key to this, regardless of the reason, is compassion, sweet compassion for ourselves and I’m guided to say that when this issue arises we need to really simply ask ourselves ‘what’s going wrong?’ and because there’s a couple of reasons why we feel spiritually exhausted and sometimes we feel like ‘oh my god, I’ve been at this for years, I’ve been at this for decades, I’m not seeing anything, I’m not getting what I want.’
And we go on and on, but that disappointment, disillusionment, that feeling of disconnection, ‘nobody loves me, I’m separated, I’m all alone, I’m doing this by myself’, like a lot of that can be core issues or vasanas, false grids, and when we discover that that’s the issue then we need to go in the direction of working with Archangel Michael or the Divine Mother or whomever your guides or your circle is and work on dissolving and letting go of those false grids.
But then there’s the flip side that it’s not that we’re in a core issue, we’re simply tired. And, you know, we’ve seen this in our, can I say, our physical life where we’ve just been working too many hours and we’re exhausted and especially as the frequencies and the vibration in our physical body’s holding all this energy and on the planet, our bodies are talking to us more and more clearly.
And so, if they’re saying to us, ‘you’re exhausted and you’re exhausted spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically’, we have to listen and take that time to rebalance.
Archangel Michael has used the analogy of the fulcrum or the see-saw, at least he has with me, and if you’re at one end then you’re really out of balance. It’s like it’s finding that teeter-totter and going to the center point of balance and some practical things like what do I do when I feel this way? Well I do, I take some time for myself, I go to the 13th Octave. The Mother Mary has said to us time and time and time again, Archangel Gabrielle, Archangel Michael, come to the 13th Octave and heal, go to the heart of One.
But I also just sit down or lie down and say to my guides and to the Council, and you would say to your circle, ‘fill me up…just fill me up’ and I flip open my crown charka as if you know, we go to an old fashion gas station and I let my guides put their energy in and fill me with this liquid, different colors, different rays, whatever I need and just let them do it for me.
Or I hand it over to them and say, ‘You know what? I’m too tired. I’m overwhelmed. I don’t know how to do this.’ So often as lightworkers we feel like we have to do everything, even though we know we’re in unity consciousness, even though we know we’re part of the community, we feel it’s our responsibility and we have to do it all.
So, when I get to this point I just hand it over and usually my ‘hand over’ person, my ‘go to gal’ is Archangel Gabrielle and I just say, “Look, I can’t do it, I don’t even know how to do it, I don’t even know where to begin because I feel completely cooked, I’m empty, I’m a little teary, I’m a little frustrated. So, could you just take care of this for me?”
And we have this endless array of tools and what happens when we’re feeling in this place of ‘I’m trying and I’m trying or I’ve been in this real high and now I’m like in the backwash, is that we stay there and we forget to ask for help or to have enough compassion for ourselves to just say, “Time out.”
SB: We should make a list of all these techniques, Linda, because you’ve really given us a large number of them and I found myself the other day saying, “What did Linda recommend? Oh, okay, what do I do here, what do I do there?” (Laughter)
Can I just add to what you said, Linda? A lot of people, especially when a core issue comes up, but even when a vasana, which is…core issues and root vasanas are the same, it’s just that a core issue is total emergency, all lights on, etcetera, etcetera. and the usual vasana is not.
But when it comes up people think ‘oh my god, I failed’, ‘I shouldn’t be feeling this way,’ ‘oh what am I going to do?’ and they think that something has gone wrong. But I would like to remind them that it’s only when the core issue or vasana comes up that it can be worked with.
It’s only when a core issue comes up, as far as I’m aware, I may be wrong here, but that the Company of Heaven can take it away from us. So really, if you’re in the midst of a vasana going off or a core issue or something, you could if you want say, “Halleluiah! Here it is, I can work on it now. I can have the Company of Heaven take it away from me” or whatever. So, please don’t be upset when a core issue or vasana comes up. Just don’t project it onto others and don’t interject it into yourself.
LD: I completely agree with you, Steve because when someone will call and say, ‘I’m basically at that point of ‘I don’t feel loved, I don’t feel worthy, I don’t think I can go on’, I say, “Halleluiah!” because it means that you’ve hit that core issue, that core key motivator that you need to let come up and out because it’s the trap door, you think it’s the bottom of the well but there is a trap door right there and once you open that trap door you’re just falling into the hands and the arms of the Mother.
SB: Right. Graham, anything you want to say before we transition?
GD: Yeah, I really liked, Steve, how you were saying that we’re learning as we go here. Let’s remember that we’re experiencing times on the planet that has never happen before this way and so we’re learning as we go here and I think it’s important to remember that…we’re all learning.
And I really liked the discussion on our last show about the focus and the emphasis on what’s going on inside of us, how we’re sharing about how we’ve been feeling more peace within.
And it’s interesting, it’s really easy, again getting back to the human part of us, which I hold with compassion, we want proof, we want benchmarks, we want to see tangible evidence of things happening, shifts.
And it’s easy to go to things like ‘is peace on Earth happening?’ and ‘how has that happened?’ and talk about ISIS and talk about the RV and talk about Ascension and Disclosure and what I really liked about last week is that we’re emphasizing it all happens within. That’s were it starts and that’s really where the focus needs to be.
Because if we have peace within, we have harmony within and if we’re embodying unity consciousness, those all feed into this ultimate vision that we are holding so near and dear in our hearts: a world that works for everyone, right? A world that has Love and compassion and unity consciousness as the theme.
So it’s good to remember that. I’m underscoring that for myself. That that’s where the emphasis and the opportunity is. It’s really internal work and everything else moves from there. So that’s it for now.
SB: Yes. Well, and it’s surprising too, how much we have to learn about doing the internal work, working the internal aspect of ourselves. There’s so many things that aren’t taught in school, right, like marriage, parenting, and working with yourself also is not really taught very much in school, so we’ll change all that, right?
LD: Yes, we will.
GD: In our own way, in our own time, and it’s not all on us.
SB: And we don’t have to do it tomorrow… Linda, are you…
LD: I have one last comment though. It’s not all on us. But it is incumbent on each of us and it isn’t something that we, most families did not focus on and certainly our education system didn’t focus on it, but in terms of our spiritual path, which is not removed from our physical path or our emotional path, what is our spiritual hygiene practice? What is your time of meditation and refilling and prayer and ritual?
Are you maintaining your spiritual hygiene? Because that’s the key for that within. It’s not ‘I’ll meditate when I get an extra 10 minutes’ or ‘I can’t meditate because I have to work and I have to take the kids to soccer’ and we can have a million excuses, but each of us are responsible for taking care of that spiritual part of ourselves. And when we do, the spiritual exhaustion, that sense of overwhelm, becomes less and less and less. That’s it… I’m done.
