Hello from Mt. Shasta,

We have all taken a turn in the tides since 12/21/12, the Winter Solstice that impacted the world so greatly. It has been fascinating to watch the changes as the world unfolds for 2013. 

The most obvious change was my move to Mt. Shasta of course, which has been highlighted by what I am calling my “Knock your Sox off Moments of Exalted Beauty.” Clearly my senses have been heightened by the shift in consciousness we have all made since 12/21, and I am grateful to have moved to the smaller town of Mt. Shasta which has a very high vibration. This has allowed my molecules to rearrange themselves in the new 2013 frequencies.

Two days after I moved in there was a winter storm bringing 4 feet of snow, followed by weeks of sunny dry weather. Mt. Shasta came out from behind the clouds in all her glory, impressed upon the deep blue sky in miraculous relief, crowned in peaks of white, white snow that sparkled and glowed in the clear sunlight. I found I could walk into town to get a video or visit the local market when driving was too icy. My treks out onto the snow-covered fields have felt exalted, and happiness has been bubbling from my heart from the experience of this immense beauty.

At the same time there has been an obvious deepening in my awareness of the sacred grounds I walk upon, and the sanctity of the waters that pour in great abundance from the Earth around Mt. Shasta. One day while visiting the headwaters of the Sacramento River to fill my daily drinking water bottles, my consciousness was transformed by the presence of 4 Native men. One man had a drum and was chanting to the waters and the earth, then offering tobacco before loading his jugs with pure water. This impressed me so much that I have made my prayers before I fill my water bottles more exuberant and made sure I consciously offer my gratitude to the Earth Mother for the abundant flow of her pure waters. I also pray for all the waters of the earth to be purified at the same time. Observing the Native man’s prayers that day also affected me more acutely because on that day I was feeling tense from some work I was doing, and was having difficulty grounding the excess energy. While he chanted I sat in the snow and just received the energy of his prayers and gratitude to the Divine. The transformation I experienced in my consciousness that day has stayed with me for weeks, and allowed me to bring higher frequencies into my work just as I have intended. The Earth seems to be calling us to offer her our gratitude and blessings in this new time. I know that this makes a difference by lifting the vibrational frequencies within and around us.

Spiritualizing my Life

Since 12/21/12, it has become abundantly clear that I am learning how to spiritualize my daily life so there is no separation. This has been a goal of mine for many years, and though it has been mostly successful, clearly 2013 has brought the manifestation of this intention to a new level of opportunity. Intuition is more available so life has become more seamless in many ways, and the heartfelt connection I have experienced to myself and my work has been magical. I have wanted my work to be my spiritual practice, and my home to reflect the spiritual qualities that most inspire me. Now in my new Temple Home in Mt. Shasta, it is clearly unfolding in just that way as I am bringing my spiritual tools into my daily life. We are being gifted with Heart Centered Action this year, according to Archangel Gabriel, and each of us is learning what that means to us.

Because I moved into a new space I wanted to incorporate lifetime’s of spiritual tools into creation of a home/office that was also a Temple holding the power of the Spiritual Practice I have adopted over 40 years. It has become a reflection of Matrix Technology using Light Fields to anchor the spiritual principles I believe in. Consciously choosing each thing I kept in my space became a powerful discipline as the altars slowly took over the entire apartment. I anchored Love in each of the corners with rocks and large uncut stones. I anchored the entire building I live in with powerful intentions. (Since it is in the shape of an H, I anchored Health, Harmony, Humor and Happiness into each corner). Wanting to charge up my apartment with high vibrational energy, I have been playing Sanskrit chants from the day I moved in. I anchored the sacred geometric shape of an octahedron in the center of my living space, pulling in all the corners of the apartment so it is all one dedicated space. My home/temple/work space is not only dedicated to manifestation of Unity and Oneness in all things, it is also dedicated to Beauty. I used Light Fields of Beauty, so that everywhere I look is beautiful. This uplifts me in such an amazing way that it adds to my “happiness quotient.” (I have been inspired by the stories about the government of Butan measuring the happiness of the people in that country as a measure of its success. It seems like we should all have that as a measurement for our lives.)

All of these intentions for my new home in Mt. Shasta are not really new in my life, as I have made the effort to create this sort of life for many years. What is magical about the time since 12/12/12 is that it is unfolding with Grace and Ease, and my HIgher Self is bringing me intuitive ideas on what my next heart-centered action will be. I have been able to float in a relatively, a surprisingly peaceful, spacious state of being as I am doing what needs to be done next. I am loving the way this feels so much that it sets the boundaries very clearly for what I am available to experience in my life. There is a sense of the fullness of Divine Presence within and around me that I want to have as my natural state of being, all the time. When I am not in alignment with this integral state, it is very clear. And it is also clear what I need to do to shift the state. The answer is always to raise my vibrational frequency. How I do that varies tremendously, which comes back to using the spiritual tools I have received over the years.

The fact that I have been amassing so much information, techniques, practices, and experiences in my spiritual toolkit has made it clearly obvious that I have to use it every day in order to create a life that works for me on many levels. What if I were really awake and I did not have to wait until I felt more like I was “finished” before I just live in the way I know is best for me. My life encompasses all that I enjoy and integrates all the parts of me that will need work perhaps as long as I have a body. I want to feel grounded and earthy as well as intensely pure and exalted in consciousness. In 2013 it is time to have it all. The caveat is that our intentions must be very clear to live in the realms of Divine Presence while we have our feet on the ground and connect to the core vitality of the Earth that sustains us.

Another demonstration of 2013 is the ability to experience lower frequencies of 3D awareness without being affected emotionally, as in the past. I can notice the difference between my 5D reality and 3D and seem to be able to live in both. This allows me to maintain strength in my boundaries as well as my ability to maintain Observer Mode without sinking into whatever is transpiring. Because it has been so organic,I am imagining that it has something to do with the Light Field of Safety and Grace that I have intended to live in. While I know intellectually that God keeps me safe and the Angels watch over me, my body still carries some old fear no matter how much work I have done. Living in a field of Safety has been a tremendous advantage. Adding Grace to my Light Field makes everything easier for me as well.

Early in the wee hours of the morning of 2013, I was awakened with the words, Welcome to 2013, a year so malleable that you are literally creating it as you live. It will be Equinox before this year can morph more clearly into what it will reveal. At the same time this means that your thoughts, prayers and intentions have immense power. As the energy of 2013 solidifies from its previous state of “warm jello,” I am using the power of my intentions to create a life that allows me to thrive in 2013.  We are participating in the most important shift in consciousness in human history. Part of the evolutionary movement is our own conscious dedication to bringing forth all the gifts, talents, skills and tools we have into the world. Through this powerful presentation together we are communicating a new reality.

Many Blessings, Shanta

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.
