Does it feel like the Unknowns are overwhelming what is Known in your life right now?

Though it may look like swirling chaos, the Great Unknown is providing the most practical and profound teachings for us all at this time. Making Peace with the Unknown is one of the greatest challenges that people are experiencing. As a teacher, the Unknown is very clear about what is necessary in order to learn the lessons involved:

  • Be Present
  • Focus your attention on what you want, and
  • Stay in Balance mentally, emotionally and physically.

If we are able to integrate these teachings, the energy frequencies of this volatile time offer us tremendous opportunities to have the life we have only dreamed of.

We have just come through a powerful cleansing period so we are ready to move into our time of Creation. Most of us have moved through the karmic patterns and are ready to be embrace the Good Karma that we also have created in life. Living in the world is taking a completely different focus than we have ever experienced before and it is still the Great Unknown. That can be challenging if we are not flexible with changes, or aware of what our feelings are, or resisting what is being presented as on opportunity by the Universe.

The Gyroscope of Your Life

Gyroscopic Life

I keep being shown the image of a Gyroscope. My father had a sailboat that would heel on its side nearly vertically when we would catch a “good wind” while sailing. At those exhilarating times, it was always fascinating to me how all the pots on the stove stayed upright. The stove was mounted on a gimbal, a portion of the framework of a Gyroscope that kept the axis level and balanced.

If we could all create the inner Gyroscope necessary to lead a more stable life, it would serve us brilliantly in this time of change.

How do we live a “Gyroscopic Life” in times of great upheaval? As usual Nature has many of the answers we are seeking. I have been working with Flower Essences since I was introduced to Bach Flower Remedies in 1978. Dr. Bach was involved with the research of vaccines in the 1920’s. He discovered that the wild flowers in his area held vibrational frequencies that assisted his patients to overcome the mental/emotional imbalances that seemed to be at the cause for their physical imbalance.

Here is more information about why Flower Essences are so supportive written by Molly Sheehan, the brilliant owner of Green Hope Farm Flower Essences.


Flower Essences to Help Our Balance

“Flower Essences are energetic tools. They offer information that we experience in our energetic/electrical systems. To continue to live and prosper, each Flower in creation must solve the specific problems it confronts in its eco system. The solutions Flowers develop in response to the problems they face become part of the Flower’s architecture and growing habits as well as its energetic vibration. This vibration is the unique electrical pattern of each flower.

“Flowering plants seek to evolve for other reasons besides survival. They seek to be the most sublime expression of their divinity. Their evolution is an expression of their own return journey to God. Flowers are the highest vibrational expression of a plant.

“So why does this help us with our own problems? As energetic as well as physical beings, we interact with the world energetically. We read the energetics in our world all day long. When we experience the energetics of a flower, we read and benefit from its problem solving vibration even as we enjoy its beauty. Flower Essences are simply a more permanent form of this same problem solving data.

“Our electrical systems read the data of a flower essence much as we might read a road map. If our electrical systems recognize that a Flower Essence offers a problem solving technique for a problem we have, our electrical systems will copy and use this electrical information to solve our problem.

“There is a Flower that has successfully tackled just about every tangle we could possibly experience. When we work with Flower Essences made from these Flowers, the information offered helps us untangle our energetic logjams., be they emotional, mental, spiritual or physical. This frees us to experience greater health and wellbeing as well as a clearer sense of our divinity. 

One untangling at a time, Flower Essences take us to the truth that we are one with God and on the way to this moment of self-realization we get to experience more joy, more happiness and better health, all thanks to these gentle teachers, Flower Essences.”

3-Month Flower Essence Program

Flower EssencesEvery month I create a Flower Essence for myself and others that assists me to see clearly what energies are at work within me that month, and how to navigate the emotional/mental imbalances that might accompany them. The Flower Essences allow a focus from a Soul’s perspective the lessons involved with the challenges we may be facing. They also offer an energetically and supportive tool to help us stay in balance and harmonious alignment with our soul’s purpose.

Because the energies of the next few months seem to becoming more intense on a personal level, the Archangels have inspired me to offer a 3-month Flower Essence Program to support us through the next season before the next eclipse series. There will be a similar pattern and theme for each of us in the program so that the Flower Essences chosen will work on an individual and group level. Even though it would seem that this idea is a bit late to be ready for the August 5 New Moon, it seems in keeping with Divine Timing.

2012 was a year that empowered us in Unity Consciousness with an awareness of how much we are of One Mind and One Heart. With this as a framework, the Essences chosen by that intention, will not only serve those in the Flower Essence Program but will also have a beneficial energetic impact on other humans existing on the planet. The Flower Essences also hold a signature of the Universal Presence of Nature, so all of Nature will benefit from our assimilation of the energies of the flowers involved.

It feels as though this is an important part of our work for the evolution of Earth right now.

The Octahedron

Octahedron Shanta GabrielDuring the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 a friend and I were burying blue fluorite Octahedrons on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. I decided to keep one for myself, and miraculously through all the moves I have made since that time, that pretty blue Octahedron has stayed with me.

Shortly after that time, Archangel Gabriel would give me visions of this shape and I would use it as a connection to Nature. The 6 Points and 8 Faces of the Octahedron made me think of Heaven, Earth and 4 Directions. In 2011 and 2012 I started using the Octahedron as an energetic tool to hold sacred space within and around me.

When I moved to Mt. Shasta I used the Octahedron shape in my new home to create a vortex of Oneness that held all the different facets of my life in harmony. It was wondrous to find out the a local store called Soul Connections had fluorite Octahedrons and I bought all I could. Fluorite is one of the elements in Nature that grows naturally in the shape of an Octahedron. Except for those I sent as gifts, these Octahedrons have been on my altar in Mt. Shasta being empowered by the sacred mountain and with prayers and intentions for the future of Beauty, Peace and Well-Being that we are creating on the planet.

Recently I have been enjoying the synchronicities between my work and the work that Jim Self also does with the Archangels that he posts on In their newest book, I found a wonderful explanation of the energetics of the Octahedron, which I have posted below.


The Power of the Octahedron

The Octahedron — the Diamond of Light

Besides being a strong vessel to contain your energy and personal power, this geometric field is also an antenna – a transmitter and a receiver. The Octahedron attracts and receives frequencies of thought. It also transmits your thoughts, intentions and desires in a clearer, more directed way.

The Octahedron is a Platonic Solid, sacred geometry that your soul remembers from ancient wisdom. This shape held the auric energy field in place defining the boundaries of the physical vehicle for us. This was not for the purpose of separation but rather to create a very clear definition of whom we each were, allowing for respect and clear communication.

The best way to reinforce this geometry and own it for yourself is to trace the lines of the Octahedron repeatedly through out your day. Make it fun. Reinforcing your Octahedron anchors it around you. If you consciously stay within your Light-filled Octahedron you will become less and less affected by other peopleʼs emotions, thoughts and erratic behavior.

You can construct the Octahedron around you to create a powerful energy field which aligns with your most Divine Self. This can be a wonderful space that allows you greater ability to express your authentic self. You can even regard everyone outside your Octahedron as performers for your entertainment.

As you live and work within your Octahedron, you begin to align with the knowledge and wisdom you once had. You also begin to transmit more clearly and with greater strength, your intentions, desires and dreams for the Universe to see and reflect back to you. You begin to know yourself.

When you construct the Octahedron as your energy field, It becomes a Diamond of Light that provides a stable containment field that allows you to move around even more effectively, without becoming affected by external noise and drama. It creates an alignment with all that you are, and simply filters out that which you are not.

Fluorite Healing Properties

Because the Octahedron shape is naturally formed in Fluorite, I have added the information about the colors and properties of this mineral so you will know the properties of the Octahedron that is chosen for you by the Archangels.

♥ Truth ♥ Consciousness ♥ Aura cleansing ♥ Intellect ♥ Protection

Fluorite is a mineral composed of Calcium Fluoride.

[box]ChakrasHeart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra
ZodiacCapricorn, Pisces
Typical colours – Colorless, white, purple, blue, blue-green, green, yellow, brownish-yellow, pink or red.[/box]

Fluorite cleanses and stabilises the aura. It absorbs and neutralises negative energy and stress. An excellent learning aid, Fluorite increases our powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps us in decision-making. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

Fluorite boosts the immune system and stimulates the regeneration and restructuring of cells and DNA, particularly in the skin and respiratory tract, and heals ulcers and wounds.  Fluorite strengthens bone tissue, and alleviates rheumatism, arthritis and spinal injuries.  It improves the discomfort of shingles and other nerve-related pain.

In addition to the generic healing properties of Fluorite, specific colours have additional attributes:

Blue Fluorite

Chakra – throat

Blue Fluorite calms the emotions and stimulates clear communication.

Green Fluorite

Chakra – heart

Green Fluorite brings hormones into balance.  It harmonises and recharges all chakras.

Purple Fluorite

Chakra – third eye

Purple Fluorite increases mystic visions and aids spiritual balance.  It helps the intuition to connect to the rational mind.


Living in Radiance II – 3 Month Program

Living in Radiance Gyroscopic LifeIn order to truly live in Radiance during these changing times and live life in Balance as a Gyroscope, the Archangels are calling us to this new 3-month Program that will bridge Heaven and Earth using the inspiration from the Angelic Dimensions and the nurturing presence of Nature.

I am inviting you to join me and receive one of these activated fluorite Octahedrons from my altar to empower your optimal future life. I will choose an Octahedron from your intentions and send it so it will arrive just before the New Moon on August 6 with the Flower Essence we will all be taking together.

This 3-month program will include:

  • Monthly Teleconferences
  • Monthly Guided Meditation mp3
  • Monthly Flower Essences
  • Personal Fluorite Octahedron to anchor the energy of our shared Vision and be your Antennae for Truth
  • New Energetic Focal Point that is supported by the Angelic Dimensions and the Universal Presence of Nature to help us create a new flexible, strong and balanced Foundation for New Life on Earth.

I am very excited with the energy of this work that we will be doing together. We have created in the past programs a powerful vortex of energy that permeated into the world a vast resonance of Well-Being, Beauty and Love. We are continuing this process with the added dimensions holding the Universal Presence of Nature in a real and tangible form through the Flower Essences and Sacred Geometry.

  1. Diamond (a.k.a. Dawud) on July 10, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    Greetings and Sacred Blessings Shanta,
    I AM Diamond (of Light), also known as Dawud. I have sensed a connection with you (energetically and intuitively) for a few years NOW. I embarked on a pilgrimage from Cleveland, Ohio to Mt. Shasta in January of 2010. As you can imagine this EPIC journey was very much like that of Frodo Baggins who accepted Gandolf’s offer to embark on an adventure. It was FULL of discomfort, Joy, pain, INsight, discoveries, beauty, the opposite of beauty, closeness, separation, tears, transformation, information, doubt, inclusion, remembrance, celebration, and triumph….to name a few. We (my partner and I) completed a portion of this pilgrimage the week of 10/10/10. I use the word “portion”, because this journey is on going, unfolding even NOW. I have recently received imprints (pulsations/impressions) of journeying to Mt. Shasta (the town, the Sacred Forrest, the mountain) soon. Launching from the comforts of hOMe here on D Street in Petaluma, California. Perhaps July 25th, in commemoration of The Day out of time, or perhaps during the equinox.

    I’ve received your newsletters for about 2 + years, and was definitely excited to hear about your transition to Mt. Shasta! Congratulations on the INSPIRATION. I really appreciate your most recent offering of Flower Essences and an Octahedran crystal. So, I’m wondering : as a Practioner/Facilitator of Healing Arts, can I purchase a single crystal from you? And do you offer a single tincture of INspired Flower Essences for purchase?
    It is my clear Intention honorably ask these questions, and Joyfully INtroduce myself. I look foward to your reply. Until Soon…..

    With Well-BEing,
    Diamond (Dawud)

  2. Shanta Gabriel on July 12, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    Thank you for your sweet message to me. I have replied to you privately. Many blessings, Shanta
