Commentary and Photo by Shanta Gabriel


Sitting at the foot of Mt. Shasta, I am filled with the majesty of Divine Presence. This sacred mountain is a vast feminine being filling the horizon and uplifting all in her vortex of power. Mt. Shasta is one of the most holy mountains on Earth, some even call her the Base Chakra of the planet. The expansiveness of beauty in this place and the abundance of Nature, gifted so freely, sparks Divine Love in and through me, and I am filled with wonder at the magnificence of this time.

This level of expansive attributes also challenges my ability to bring into conscious awareness what is transpiring around me on the planet right now, as well as through me. The desire to spend a few months in Mt. Shasta was sparked from a soul level. I have needed to find a deeper connection to Nature. These first months of 2012 have felt like being in a whirling vortex and at other times as though I am in a vehicle moving at the trajectory of the speed of Light.

My move to Mt. Shasta is all encompassing. One part is to help a friend in a health challenge and to take care of their beautiful dog and house next to the sacred mountain. Because I am here, I am blessed to spend time with a community of very evolved and welcoming souls. Part of this move has to do with more creativity in my work upleveled by Mt. Shasta’s high frequencies, with a chance to complete a book and teach at a new level. Much of my placement here is purely personal as I have been guided to create more of a framework for my feeling center and share that stronger foundation with others. We have all been deeply clearing the old patterns from our lives in order to be ready for this new time we are moving into. I have felt a strong need to live closer to Nature in a sacred place in order to nurture my abilities to receive the vast divine qualities available to all of us right now.

Trouble Digesting Life?

Soothing my solar plexus has been essential, as my digestive process seems to be fluctuating with the energy frequencies. I have heard this from others over the past few months, so I know we are all being impacted in our Solar Plexus Chakra. This is our power center where the emotional body is affected by the energies around us that may have triggered old patterns ready to be released.

The empowerment of Divine Grace is a powerful tool I can offer to myself so my feeling body has help when it needs to have more ease and safety. I have noticed that when I am having a hard time creating coherent thoughts because of the intensity of energy frequency, the soothing quality of Grace is nurturing a deep need I was not even aware of. Just calling on the sacred quality of Divine Grace to fill my entire being so it can anchor on the planet is a nurturing, soothing and powerful process for me. All will benefit when we bring more Grace to the earth.

When I sit at my altar for meditation and prayer in the morning, the crystal hanging in the window sends rainbows of light all around me. I fill myself with these rainbows and use this light during the day. I also ask for guidance. Part of my spiritual practice is to take a Gabriel Message Card every day. Over the two weeks I have been here, I have been receiving the same two messages. I cannot ignore this synchronicity and must pay attention to these words of guidance. The first is Message 29:

“Bask in the wonder of life, go deep, soar high. Follow your love and the joy of fulfillment will be yours.”

Breathe that in. And then consider Message 46:

“Walk in Beauty, live in Trust and know the Benevolent Love of God guides your way.”

It seems there is a theme and I am being encouraged to trust the process of my experience. As I open into the new energies around me, I am letting my body recalibrate to be able to function at these higher frequencies. It feels as though my nervous system is being rewired, so it would be best to gracefully allow that to happen. Resisting is not an option. So with surrender in mind, there is nothing to do but enjoy the beauty around me, plant seeds for my future, bless the process and receive the depth of love that is being offered to all of us. All will benefit from this process as our energy work not only blesses our lives but the Earth as well.

On a Planetary Level

We just experienced the Wesak Moon on May 5, the most powerful Full Moon of the year, celebrating Buddha’s enlightenment as well as opening a new pathway of Light on the planet. The nonphysical assistance we have access to during these times is brilliant. It was also a 5-5-5 Portal opening to the empowered frequencies of Divine Light energy pouring on to the Earth right now. These will be increasing right through the important 12-12-12 Portal on December 12, 2012.

As if we were not already aware of the changes affecting the planet right now, on the New Moon of May 20 a solar eclipse will take place catapulting us into new birth and completion of our past patterns. This eclipse will especially affect the balance of the feminine/masculine energy on Earth and within ourselves. Obviously the old ways do not work in any area of life that relies on our left-brain intellect to make decisions. We are being drawn into making new choices by relying on inspiration from our hearts. Science has recently discovered that our hearts actually contain more intelligence than our brains, so once again spirituality is well ahead of the mainstream in awareness of Truth.

To add to this process for bringing more Love into our lives as well as the planet, on June 5 viewed from Earth, Venus will literally transit over the sun. Since the sun empowers new life and Venus carries Divine Love, our lives are deepening into a free flow of Divinity that can move us forward in the direction of our intentional focus. This energy will not be available again in this lifetime.

To me it feels like I am learning to surf a huge wave and am getting tumbled in the process only to surface gasping air and marveling at the power of the energy forces I am experiencing. It reminds me of the prologue in Richard Bach’s brilliant little book, Illusions:

Once there lived a village of creatures along the bottom of a great crystal river. The current of the river swept silently over them all–young and old, rich and poor, good and evil, the current going its own way, knowing only its own crystal self.

Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom, for clinging was their way of life, and resisting the current what each had learned from birth. But one creature said at last, “I am tired of clinging. Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom.”

The other creatures laughed and said, “Fool! Let go, and that current you worship will throw you tumbled and smashed across the rocks and you will die quicker than boredom!” But the one heeded them not, and taking a breath did let go, and at once was tumbled and smashed by the current across the rocks.

Yet in time, as the creature refused to cling again, the current lifted him free from the bottom, and he was bruised and hurt no more. And the creatures downstream, to whom he was a stranger, cried, “See a miracle! A creature like ourselves, yet he flies! See the Messiah, come to save us all!” 

And the one carried in the current said, “I am no more Messiah than you. The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure.” But they cried the more, “Savior!” all the while clinging to the rocks, and when they looked again he was gone, and they were left alone making legends of a Savior.

Our Process for 2012

To me this is our process right now – to learn to flow with big energy forces, to soothe our emotions with Divine Grace and receive ever more Love from the God Source, trusting our guidance as we let go into the River of Divine Light.

That is what 2012 is about. The world will not end on December 21, but it is feeling very different than it ever has before. It’s our job to recognize the frequency of current that helps us feel inspired into heart-centered action and call forth the qualities of consciousness that will make such action possible.

How Can I Serve this Process?

To assist our personal process of evolution, I was guided in January of 2012 to lead a seven-week course using the techniques I have learned over 40 years of spiritual practice. I called this teleconference Evolution of Consciousness 2012.

I knew we were all going to need to operate from a centered base more this year than ever before. At the same time the power of Divine Light amped its frequencies to allow us access to the Christ Consciousness and the Angelic Dimensions. This opened our beings to an expansive new 12-Chakra system connecting us literally from Heaven to Earth directly through our bodies. We need to learn to work with this new energy system for our optimum future lives.

Through our seven-week teleconference, Evolution of Consciousness 2012, we used these high frequency alignments to activate the new chakra system, bring more spiritual consciousness into our daily lives, and seed our personal futures as well as the planet with Divine Love. The response from the international group of students was so phenomenal we decided to offer the recordings and class materials so that others would be able to participate. These recordings and materials are now available to purchase.

The class members also encouraged me to continue the class for another seven weeks (Phase 2), which we completed the last week of April. Those materials will be available at a later time.

This class series with its study materials, is proving to be not only a powerful audio course but some of the most profound work I have been guided to do in this life.

“I have learned so much during our time together, and am amazed at the changes that have occurred over the last 7 weeks. I’m taking this opportunity to offer my heartfelt appreciation for you, your class and all that you shared during those seven weeks.  So much that you gave will remain with me and be utilized from now on until the end of my earth days — and likely beyond as my soul’s growth was definitely affected.” (from a class participant)

We have created a new Gabriel Resource Center to allow you access to the materials I’ve been inspired to make with the assistance of the masters working with me. There is also a free technique that I received from Archangel Gabriel and have used every day for over 20 years. I pray that you will fiind this as empowering as I have.

By the end of this week we will offer for the first time, online access to The Gabriel Messages Book and the Gabriel Message Card Set. So many have enjoyed working with these inspiring cards online as their daily message from Archangel Gabriel. Now you will be able to read the expanded message from the book with each message you choose, knowing it speaks to the greater Truth within you.

I am grateful to share this work with you in a new exciting way. It gives us the opportunity to create and activate a profound spiritual process together that will assist in bringing forth a new world of Peace, Harmony and Love.

Crystal Chalice

Dear One,

Your heart will provide the guidance you are seeking when you blend the worlds of spirit and matter within your life. As you claim Unity in a world of polarity, it creates an empowered connection to the Source of all Light. Increasing frequencies of Divine Love are elevating your consciousness in ways that allow greater Truth to surface from your heart, the seat of your intuition. To consciously empower the energy frequencies in which you live, create clear intentions that let the Divine know what you are available to experience in your life. The fields of potential around you will then begin to expand exponentially.

All is frequency. The accelerated rates of energy that heighten awareness are so malleable that extraordinary results can be seen in your life in a very short amount of time. It requires your taking responsibility for your thoughts and feelings in such a way that your magnetic field only radiates the life you are choosing to live in. Your heart is a powerful guide in this process. As the human expansion into multidimensional consciousness explodes in the arena of the human heart and mind, new chakras are opening within your being.

One of these energy centers is what can be called the Sacred Heart. It has also known as the Magnetic Heart, the High Heart or the Seat of the Soul. Located behind the sternum in the area of your thymus gland, this energy center can open new doorways to Christed awareness. You can increase the frequencies in this chakra by consciously filling that area with Divine Love every day as a spiritual practice.

Just imagine that this area contains a Sacred Vessel that you can fill with the Light of Divine Love as a pure elixir of God’s Grace, a Divine Substance. Not only does this empower connections to your intuitive knowing and creative awareness, but your physical being will also resonate with these heightened frequencies. You can create an inspiring image of a beautiful crystal chalice in the area of your High Heart. As you place your palms on your chest, and breathe into this area, a very simple prayer of invitation can be used, such as:

“Divine Presence, with every breath I take, fill my Sacred Heart with Divine Love and Illuminate my heart with your Grace. Thank you.”

Your thymus gland responds to this Divine Light by expanding so it can take in more Divine Substance. This increases the T-cell count in your body thus empowering your immune system. This process allows you to assist your physical body to learn how to manage the new heightened energy frequencies the Earth has been experiencing during her ascension process.

The Ascension Process

This ascension process of the Earth started to increase at the Harmonic Convergence, August 16 and 17, 1987. The 25 years since that time, a vast experience of raising consciousness, has been broken into 3 distinct time periods. From 1987 to 1996, there was a ten-fold increase in the frequencies of accelerated energies each year. Many world-altering events occurred as you witnessed massive parts of the world reorganizing into smaller, freedom-oriented pockets of independence. Those old enough to remember the changes that took place personally may remember the new ideas that seemed cosmic in orientation such as the awareness of the Angelic Dimensions suddenly coming into the forefront of people’s awareness. Even though exploited for financial gains, the mass consciousness began to include the presence of Angelic Light Beings that are here to assist planetary evolution.

Awareness of the need to preserve and conserve the Earth’s resources became much more pervasive in the consciousness of many people as well as the weather changes that were occurring. The beginning of the information age and the Internet came into being. More information about what was happening on both a cosmic level as well as behind the prevailing news started to become more important.

From 1997 to 2006, the energy increased one-hundred fold yearly and people became more aware of Truths needing to be brought out into the open, mistrust of government institutions awakened. Wars became commonplace reflecting the inner chaos within most people’s minds. Emotional states were fluctuating as fear-based consciousness began to pervade the airways. As pressure from the heightened energy frequencies continued, people immersed themselves in the new technologies. Although often intended to help manage the masses of information, for many it has been used to evade the mounting pressure.

From 2007 to 2012, the waves of heightened energy frequencies pushing the evolution of consciousness are increasing by the day. The mass awareness of the link between our realities and our thoughts has become more clear. Greater polarities exist as that which has been dark and hidden was brought forward into the light of awareness. In the process, people have become so immersed in fear of the future or the mass changes occurring in their daily worlds that some are missing out on the opportunities presented by the highest frequencies of spiritual energy ever known in this world. The ways to manage an accelerated life lie completely in the spiritual realms. Humans are being asked to ground Divine Light into their lives in a way that brings more simplified and subtle changes. Miraculous occurrences, synchronicities and empowered energy hookups are being provided for those who are paying attention.

Where Can I Find Peace?

The world can be so busy and distracting that the simplicity of spiritual grace can be overlooked. The beauty of Truth and Love is being trampled in fear of loss when your greatest initiation in higher consciousness at this point in time may lie in the questions: How much Divine Love can I receive, and how do I want it to change my life?

Nothing can be accomplished by moving faster. Allowing yourself the quiet moments your Soul is longing for can create great depth and purpose for life. These times require an integration of the accelerated energy now flowing into your being. You cannot move at the speed of Light yet, but you can open your heart and mind to receive this Divine Light and then use it to empower and clarify your life.

It requires you to treat yourself with compassion and respect. There has never been a time like this on Earth and you are doing the best you can. Believe in yourself and trust your intuition to show you what makes your heart sing with happiness. Your heart is becoming your compass in this New Earth time. Use it to chart your actions in the world. When you bring in the Light Force of Divine Love, it empowers your body and mind to respond to the guidance available in these higher energy frequencies. Open your mind to Faith.

The greatest challenges you face in your life require the greatest trust to truly know that the Divine Presence will not only take care of you, but every situation in the world that you are concerned with. You live in a benevolent Universe, and you have unlimited assistance to enable you to meet this time with guidance, strength. You are not alone and miracles await your invitation. If not now, just WHEN did you think you would need Faith?
