Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ The Leader of Your Own Life Expression
Trusting yourself as the empowered expert of your own life expression gives you clarity. This is very important for those who were conditioned to listen to others rather than the yearnings of their own hearts.
The truth of the matter is that any advice you get from others, be it friends or family members, is going to be based on what is right for them and their own life expressions. While they usually mean well, the fact is they simply are not privy to what you are on the planet to do, where your soul wants to lead you, and what self expression would bring you the most joy.
Following your heart and your truth is the way forward into your most authentic life expression. We urge you to follow the beckoning of your soul for that is the best way you can honour yourself. If you are unsure of what that is, start to get curious about what lights you up and commit to getting to know yourself in a deeper way than ever before.
If people have been trying to put their will and opinions over yours for a long time, it can help to ask yourself, “If I didn’t know a single soul on the planet, what would I do?” That can help bring you some clarity and get you to start thinking about what is a true match to you, or something you would like to try to figure out if it is or it isn’t.
It is time. It is time to lovingly take your power back from those who think they know better, and to assume the sacred role of leader of your own life expression. The world is waiting for you to do just that, because that is exactly what you came onto the planet to do.
As we study waves of energy and how the universe creates balance by action phases and lulls, we see this in action as the tide goes in and the tide goes out, the sun comes up, the sun goes down, and so on. We wish to take this discussion one step further into the experience of the energetically sensitive human being.
Some human beings are born with extra sensitivities, while others work hard to develop those sensitivities. A common experience, no matter how they got there, is that the sensitive human being finds themselves in receiving mode all the time. They feel powerless in the face of energies and haven’t been able to turn it off.
In reality, it isn’t a matter of being able to turn it off, per se, but rather of being able to transition into also being a giver of energy rather than just a receiver of energy.
Your energetic sensitivities are giving you information on how to proceed. If you are feeling overwhelmed, it is time to create space for yourself to simply be. But it may also be a time for you to switch from being a receiver of energy to a giver of energy. Let us give you an example.
Suppose you are drawn to go to a certain area, but when you get there it feels awful. That has given you valuable information. It is a sign that you definitely do not want to be in receiving mode while you are there, because the energy is not supportive to you.
You have a choice. You can either avoid that place completely, or you can switch to being a giver of energy rather than a catcher of energy. Which do you think someone stepping into their energetic mastery would do?
If you find yourself in such a situation, we invite you to try this ~ Remove yourself from the challenging energy for a moment. With your intention, connect with your inner light, let it expand until it extends beyond your body in all directions, and then allow it to lead the way. Let it shine brightly and gloriously, then step back into the energies that you found challenging just a moment ago. Not only will they not affect you, you will be being of service to help lift the density of that space.
Do you see? You cannot breathe in and breathe out at the same time. You either receive or you give. The choice is up to you. You are not at the mercy of your energetic sensitivities. Not at all! The key is to understand that your sensitivities serve you well, you are just learning how to have mastery over them and to use them as the tool they are meant to be.
Learning that you can easily switch from receiving to giving is a part of that, and it is the key to being far more comfortable, and of simple service, wherever you may be.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ The Power and Purpose of the Intensity
When it seems like there is wave after wave of intensity, it is not a sign of trouble or failure. It is a sign of success! It means that you have been systematically making progress over a long enough period that something new is ready to be birthed.
Intensity is a sign of big movement and breakthroughs. It is a time to keep your focus, stay committed to the job at hand, and provide whatever care you need for yourself to assure your success.
The intensity is the acceleration of waves of energy that are designed to push your next profound phase out of the gestation period and into tangible form. Great intensity is always followed by a space of tenderness, discovery, and recuperation. The purpose of the intensity is to create openings for you to complete one phase and step fully into your next highest expression of self.
Do you see? There is predictability in each phase and in their purpose which, with your wisdom, you can use to help you navigate the waves with greater understanding and much less fear and doubt.
In fact, we’d even go so far as to say that as you start to observe the workings of the universe through this new level of understanding, you will get to the point where you can truly embrace the gifts of whatever phase you are in, and start to truly enjoy the unfoldment of your journey.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Moving with the Waves
Dear Ones, the best way to soothe yourself during times of energetic intensity is to allow yourself to move with the waves. Trust the rhythm of the universe and the purpose of each part of the process.
The most discomfort comes from resisting any phase you are currently in. You are not getting it wrong. You cannot get it wrong! You can simply make the process more taxing and uncomfortable than it needs to be by falling into fear, doubt, resistance, or denying yourself what would make it easier to move with the waves.
We understand it is easier to embrace periods that feel calmer but just like a washing machine some energetic agitation can help dispel density and ultimately leave things cleansed and clearer. Just because the waters are choppy doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress.
So be the expert on you. Trust. Move with what is being supported at any given time and know that every single wave has purpose. Remember it is designed to be an overall system of balance, so no phase will last one second longer than it needs to, and it is all designed to serve both you and the planet. You have prepared well for the times you are in, so trust in your capability, and know that you are doing a truly remarkable job.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Consciously Pioneering Into the New
The biggest challenge many of you are facing is learning how to navigate your life moving forward based on what you would like to do vs what you have to do. The first chapter of your incarnation had many ‘presets’ if you will ~ things on your soul’s to-do list that you wanted to experience.
These might include soul contracts to connect and interact with others, a desire to balance karma, service contracts to assist in certain ways, and themes you wished to expand on while you were in the body in your desire to heal them once and for all. For many of you it was all about having a 3D experience.
But you have now wrapped up that phase and are in the process of stepping fully into the new. There are no more presets, no more to-do lists. You navigate your way forward by simply following your heart and honouring whatever way you would like to express yourself. Giving yourself the freedom to do this is an essential aspect of the new energies.
It can feel odd to live your life through preference and self expression. It is not selfish, it is exactly the phase you have worked hard to evolve into. All of your choices will be conscious, because you are a conscious being. It is through your preferences that you will pioneer into the new; creating possibilities and pathways for others to follow whenever the time is right for them.
Because this phase is rather unquantifiable, it is common to fear that you are not doing enough. If you hear one thing from us, hear this: your presence is more than enough. Your beingness is more than enough, because you are anchoring higher vibrational energies on the planet.
Your growth and expansion is your service, and is what has been driving the shift on your planet. There has never been a time, since you have been in a body, when you haven’t been in service through your energetics. So rest easy in that truth, and know that anything that you choose to do on top of that is, as they say, gravy.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ What You’ve Been Waiting for All Along
Dear Ones, you are in a time of rebirth. You are leaving the old chapter behind and in the process of stepping fully into the new. Be patient with yourselves! It takes time to get used to completely new energies and the ways that work best for you to navigate them.
You are in a time that is ripe for manifestation, for expansion, new discoveries, and taking quantum leaps. If you have been putting off things you know you need to do for your own comfort and wellness, now is the time to do them. It’s time to get clear and honest with yourself.
What are you ready to let go of? What old habit is a priority for you to evolve beyond? Now is the ideal time to tackle it, because you are in a period that is incredibly supportive of doing that work. Once you are done, what are you ready to receive that will have room to appear in your life due to releasing what was no longer working or honouring you?
When we speak of getting clear about what you would like to manifest, we urge you not to constrain it through the old habits of micro-managing, fear or doubt. This is about next level manifestation, which is done as a co-creative process. Identify with the core elements that mean the most to you and feel good energetically when you think of them. These might be freedom, satisfaction, purpose, wonder, connection, or any other core element that your soul is craving and beckoning you towards.
By focusing on those elements, you demonstrate your willingness to be led with complete faith and trust from a universe that adores you, knows your highest potentials, and can’t wait to lead you down the path of discovery of what truly exists for you that you could never imagine from where you are now.
After all, if you are in unprecedented energies, it also means unprecedented possibilities, opportunities, and experiences to replace the old. This is what you’ve been waiting for all along ~ to play in the magic and wonder of the previously undiscovered as an embodied soul on an ascending planet!
Dear Ones, all living creatures on the planet, including you, are geared towards evolution. There is an innate wisdom within you that will guide you if you take the time to quiet your mind and listen to your inner knowing. You are in unprecedented energies, which means you are experiencing them for the first time. You would not send yourself onto a planet to experience this being unprepared!
You have everything you need to be successful. You have your own inner Wise One who is more than prepared for the times you are in, and you have an entire team of helpers ready to assist and guide you if you need extra help. It is time to trust your ability to intuitively move through the shift with the same built-in instincts that animals use to adapt to new conditions. You don’t need to hone it, develop it or have it given to you ~ it is already part of you. You simply need to accept that it exists, and allow it to lead the way.
And while you are driving the shift through your conscious desire to evolve, the shift is also serving you by allowing you to hone even more skills. Not knowing what is next allows you to open to new possibilities, and to navigate one now moment at a time. Intense energies teach you to prioritize self care and tend to your needs.
Not knowing, along with energetic intensity, creates the perfect circumstances that allow you to get more comfortable with surrender, and flowing with faith and trust ~ the exact elements of the Divine Combination that is the operating system of the higher energies and the empowered human being.
Do you see? You are doing a magnificent job just by being you. You were born ready for this. You will not mess it up, we promise. In fact, the shift is well under way, and there is nothing that can stop the momentum it has gathered now. So rest
easy and keep doing what feels right and aligned for you. Phase one is complete, and phase two is where it really starts to get interesting.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ The Moment is Now
The 40 days after the equinox, which will bring you to the end of April, is a very potent period for manifestation and creation.
What dreams have been waiting patiently for you to give yourself permission to recognize and grow, not just for you but for the highest good of all? What have you always wanted, deep in your heart, but never had the courage to see if it could become a reality for you?
Not only is it time to connect with your truest desires, which represent the full and authentic expression of who you really are, it is time to anchor so deeply into your faith and trust that you give them everything they need to open up for the next incredible chapter of your life. All the work that you have been doing has been for the period that you are in right now, Dear Ones.
The moment is now.
We urge you to remember and apply what you know, settle into being your truest you, and allow the unfoldment to lead you from there. It will serve you, and your planet, beautifully.
On this day that celebrates love, we hope you will expand your focus to see the love that exists everywhere for you, if only you have the eyes to see…
Mother Earth gives you flowers every day.
The sun warms and heals you.
Your body serves you tirelessly by offering you a vehicle for your soul.
Your guides love you, encourage you, and cheer you on through your earthly adventures.
Whether you have a partner or not, there is so much love to wrap yourself up in if you can shift your focus from lack to abundance.
But more than anything, the love you truly crave is love for yourself. In fact, we would even go so far as to say all the love you can see around you serves the purpose of showing you how worthy you are of love, and to remind you to shift into loving and accepting yourself.
Again we say ~ the final frontier of your enlightenment process is finally shifting into the love and acceptance you have been yearning for so deeply from yourself.
From that space of inclusion, you become the true embodiment of love, allowing it to effortlessly flow to you and through you, becoming one with your truth and your purpose. Like all other things spiritual ~ unconditional love and unity consciousness cannot be fully experienced from externals. They are the ultimate gifts you must give to yourself, and from there, all the truly wondrous things that you seek become possible.
Your job is to have no attachment to the appearance of disharmony but to hold to the Love within all things.
Deep within you and all around you is Divine Love. When you are free from distracting thoughts about the surface appearance of the world, it is easier to remember this truth. Even if you are in a situation that appears to be upsetting, know deeply in your heart that God’s Love exists within all things. When you remember this higher wisdom, the outer world of appearances has no choice but to fall in line with your focus of attention.
It has become a scientific truth in the study of quantum physics that the particles of atomic fields arrange themselves into form when the focus of the scientist’s attention is there. Before this focus of attention, the particles were waves of energy with unlimited potential. Many books have been written which describe this process in detail. This field of unlimited potential, waiting for your focus of attention, is why your thoughts are so powerful. This is why you can create your new reality by holding a vision of what you want to see happen.
The universe will be creating your reality according to your thoughts, whether you are paying attention or not, so having a conscious awareness of the future reality you choose to create is very potent. Imagine a world of Love in your thoughts, focus your attention on this as truth, and you shall have it. Know that with God all things are possible. This means it is possible for the world to live in Peace and Harmony, for all people to have enough food to be healthy, and that all can live in joy-filled Abundance. Despite appearances to the contrary, this is Divine Will for all human beings.
Your deepest beliefs will affect this process. It is good to be aware of the subconscious thoughts that run contrary to your future visions. Your thoughts are the vehicle to create a world of Love and Peace for yourself and all others in alignment with this idea. Know that one of the greatest truths in the universe is that God exists in all circumstances and Divine Love is within all things. Hold your mind on the power of God’s Love, ask for a miracle if you need it, and allow this Universal Presence of Love to show you a reality where Harmony and Beauty are all that exist.
Remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today:
Your job is to have no attachment to the appearance of disharmony but to hold to the Love within all things.
A lot of people think that if they’ve ended up in a space of not knowing, they’ve done something wrong. Let us reassure you, it is quite the opposite! It is a sign of success!
Not knowing means that you’ve done such a good job of exploring the energies you’ve been in that you’ve exhausted the possibilities, and you are ready to move on to the next level or stage. It also means that you are ready to move beyond 3D creation, which involves creating within the known, to 5D creation, which involves allowing yourself to be led into the realm of potentiality to the possibilities you aren’t aware of yet.
This is cause for both excitement and celebration. In fact, many of you are feeling that excitement now.
When you don’t know, you are ready to change your operating system to that of surrender, faith, flow, and trust. You are ready to reconnect with your curiosity, a trait which many of you haven’t used since you were children which allows you to experience wonder and magic. You are ready to allow your soul and your heart to lead the way; a wonderful place to find yourself.
Not knowing is a sign of growth, a sign of being ready to up-level, and a sign you are honing a new navigation system that will take you to so much more than you’ve ever experienced before. So allow the unfoldment, and know this is not a punishment, but rather an opening and opportunity. Enjoy having arrived in this new space and be willing to flow into the new, enjoying the just rewards that are the fruits of your labour.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Get Brave, Be Curious
When you make the broad intention that you would like to experience more of a certain energy, the universe immediately begins to cooperate with you in having that experience. You participate by being willing to be guided in that direction by following the signs and synchronicities and the path that opens up in front of you, even if you are not sure exactly where it is taking you.
Your faith, trust, and curiosity, along with your willingness to move, explore, and receive, are vital aspects to the unfoldment of your highest life expression. It might help to think of it this way. If you just sit on a bicycle but don’t pedal, you tip over and don’t get anywhere. You have to get into movement in order to find your balance, learn new skills, and make new discoveries. You can’t guide something that isn’t willing to move!
Many of you have been conditioned to wait to take action until you have assurances, but that system rarely works for two reasons. First, it is trying to create from a space of fear, doubt, and control, which are all constrictive energies. Second, it doesn’t work because it is trying to create solely from your mind, and your greatest creations come from the guidance of your heart and the beckoning of your soul. Those are the parts of you that know your fullest potentials, and have an entire team of helpers to assure your success!
So get brave, Dear Ones. Be curious. Don’t give up before the flow has a chance to show you where it is trying to take you. Dream big and beautifully and open-heartedly. Be willing to be led to the discovery of what exists as true potentials for you beyond what you already know, and get ready for your life to expand and bloom in the most marvelous ways
Greetings, Dear Ones! How pleased we are to be connecting with you during these extraordinary times. We honour you for your courage, your tenacity, your kind and loving hearts, and your commitment to both your own evolution and the shift of consciousness that is occurring on the planet.
There are many key aspects we would like to cover that are going to be themes in the energies of 2023.
It usually takes several months for you to get a good feel for the energy of a new year. That is especially true for the energy of 2023. You are in a corridor of energy, a birth canal, if you will, that started with the December solstice and will last until the Spring Equinox. This will be one of the most important passages you will ever go through. It will mark both endings and beginnings, and from there, the new will be truly birthed.
Many of you feel the winds of change blowing, but you are not sure what is happening. On a soul level, you are feeling the importance of this period of time you are in. There is anticipation, there is excitement, there is discomfort, there is wonder – all hallmarks of a birth!
Some of you may step into service for the first time. Some of you may experience a shifting of your service. Your surroundings may change; either your physical location, the people around you, or both. Some of you may move suddenly to places you had never considered before, or you may change careers. Expansion of all sorts will be occurring.
If you have been in what has felt like a long waiting period, tangible external expansion may finally be upon you. If you have been acting as an energetic space holder, you may find yourself finally released from that duty. It is all divinely orchestrated to unfold seamlessly when others are ready to step up and fill your position so that you can move on. It is designed to serve the highest good of all.
You might think of it this way: if you feel you are someone that has been holding space, we invite you to imagine a train station. You are standing there, clipboard in hand, guiding people to their trains and marking their names off your list as they board. You have been waiting there patiently for as many to show up as are on your list. But now you look out at the platform and you realize it is empty. Everyone who is going to show up has, and it is time for you to also board the train.
You don’t have to worry if there were people on your passenger list who didn’t show up to catch the train! You had a list of potential passengers. Each person uses their free will to decide when they’d like to board the train. There will be other space holders with their clipboards to take your place to assist them. And there will be many, many more trains available for them to take whenever they are ready. You did not fail them in any way. Your success came from honouring your service contract to the best of your ability.
Now, the people who are on the train still don’t know exactly where they are going! They know where they want to get off because they feel the energetic match of where their next adventure begins. But they don’t know exactly what it will look like, who they will meet, or what wonderful things they will experience. But they do know they have done the work, and they are ready to receive the fruits of their labour.
When you get off the train, you will be navigating your path through the compass of your heart, which will lead you to your true north. Many of you will still be in a space of not knowing. The difference is, the past several years for many of you had you in a stationary not knowing. For many of you this year, you will still be not knowing, but you will be in movement, making your highest choice one now moment at a time, and allowing the unfoldment of your highest life expression.
As you move forward into the energies of 2023, we urge you to settle into the gift of not knowing. When you don’t know where you are going, you become more present. You get curious. You don’t have an attachment to anything looking a certain way, so you naturally open to many more potentials.
Not knowing helps you become a pioneer, an expander of your own path and the possible pathways for humanity. Not knowing is an essential aspect of moving into the new energies, because you simply cannot create the new with only the energies of the old.
There will continue to be pockets of energetic intensity, but you are becoming very adept at moving with the energies, and giving yourself what you need instinctively. You might think of it like a video game. At the end of a level, you might have a very intense task to accomplish that takes all of your concentration and focus.
Once you complete that task, an entirely new level will open to you, with new areas to explore and new tools to discover and use. Your evolutionary journey is like that. It involves playing in certain energetic levels until they have nothing left to offer you. You finally burst out of that cycle into a new level that has become available to you due to your consistent efforts and skill set.
Another interesting aspect of 2023 is that you will see many more people begin to awaken and start to move away from conspiracy theories. Becoming interested in conspiracy theories often marks the beginnings of a person’s spiritual journey. It all starts with questioning, and when you question, answers are sure to come.
Many people will begin to move away from conspiracy theories because enough time has gone by where many of the promised events have not come to pass. This is a very common occurrence in your awakening process – having believed information that later turns out to be false. This may have come from those who were spreading disinformation, to psychics, healers, or spiritual teachers who weren’t working from a space of integrity.
While this can be a disheartening experience, ultimately it helps hone the skill of discernment, and leads people to connect to their own truth and inner wisdom. Shifting away from misinformation into heart truths will ultimately begin to heal the division that has been prevalent on your planet.
Many of you with very strong service contracts have been out of balance, only willing to give and not willing to receive. If that is the case for you, 2023 is the year to prioritize your own self love practice. You simply cannot move into unity consciousness and leave yourself out. You cannot proceed in your own embodiment process if you are busy denying yourself at the same time, either.
You will be called to finally include yourself in your unconditional love and tender care, which for many of you is the final frontier. You will move out of perpetual self neglect into self care, self acceptance, self presence, and self respect. This is the whole model of a self love practice, and one that is long overdue for many of you to move into.
If you have been feeling like there has been a major piece missing that you couldn’t identify, it is highly likely it is your own love that you are seeking. Once that is in place, you will be of even greater service in a way that honours everyone, and that is exactly what we wish for each and every one of you.
By stepping into being your own loving guide, parent, and shepherd, as well as working with the divine combination of surrender, faith, flow, and trust, you will have all the elements in place that will allow you to make deep, true, abiding progress, because you will finally be out of resistance and working with all the energies that have always been there to guide and assist you.
Many of you will move out of the habit of being in perpetual troubleshooting mode with yourself and start to trust yourself and your divine competency. That is what we mean by into the true. You will finally trust yourself to navigate to your true north, not the north everyone says you should aim towards.
As you step into the energies of the next phase of your incarnation, there will be a changing of the guard, so to speak, with some of your guides having completed their mission with you, and new guides coming in to assist you in this new phase. It is a time of great celebration when you are ready to bring in new guides!
You might find yourself suddenly needing to sing, hum, tone, or make repetitive noises. If you speak soul or light language, you might find yourself speaking a new dialect that you haven’t spoken before. All of these are wonderful occurrences because they are means of shifting into vibrational alignment with your new guides.
Many of you will bring on new gifts. These gifts aren’t really new, per se, they are more a remembrance of what you have done in other incarnations very well. Many of you will be picking up from where you left off in what you consider to be your most successful incarnation, and dusting those gifts off to take them to the next level in the new energies.
So many of you will be finding your way into unique ways of being of service. You may step into tangible service for the first time, or you may be expanding the services you already offer, or changing them completely. There is no one-size-fits-all service path. That is by design. You all add to the mosaic of the whole through your authenticity. By having many people offering different kinds of help, you efficiently serve the whole.
How do you know you are doing the right one? By following the compass of your heart to your true north. We urge you to honour the service paths of all, for you are all integral to the needs of the planet.
Many of you are dissatisfied with the way the world is. You can’t create the New Earth with expired energies. You must be willing to move beyond what you can see into the realm of potentiality, where the solutions exist and are awaiting your discovery. You become a stabilizing force on your planet by being willing to be the change, both by holding the energies you wish to see more of and also by honouring your own embodiment process.
Moving forward isn’t just about identifying what you would like. It is taking the time to honour what your soul craves. Your most authentic self is your greatest gift to the world, for it is through your authenticity that you contribute the purest essence of you, which is exactly what you came onto the planet to do.
You are ready. You have done the work. Your soul has prepared you well for these exact times, to both assist and create. You find your truest matches and your truest purpose by allowing your heart to lead you into the exploration of what exists beyond what you can see, where the truest riches and your highest lines of potential are waiting to be found.
Of course, many of you will still be at differing stages of your journey. Some of you were meant to go first and pioneer a way forward, while others will be content to awaken once the path is cleared. All is divinely perfect for each of your individual soul intentions, and each method comes with its own unique benefits and challenges.
What we do want you to know is that all of you chose to be on the planet at this time to participate in this grand awakening, and your souls could not wait to experience the times you are in right now.
Last, we wish to remind you that it is difficult to truly gauge your progress from your own vantage point. That is why certain themes loop back around to you, over and again, so you can see them and handle them based on your latest level of attainment. You are always being offered opportunities to learn, to expand, and to finally embody your highest expression of self.
If you could only see yourselves as we see you! You would be amazed at your beauty and how much you have accomplished. Stay the course, get back to the basics of presence, gratitude, and the divine combination of surrender, faith, flow, and trust when you don’t know where you are going, and allow your true north to magnetize you to the new vistas that await you.
Please know we are with you every step of the way, because you are an honoured and beloved member of the ground crew. Your beingness is always more than enough, and your growth and presence is your service. We simply cannot wait to see what you will create and where your expansion will lead you because you never cease to amaze us. This is what we wished to share with you today. It has been our great pleasure.
Shanta Gabriel for Archangel Gabriel ~ Reclaiming Your Power
When you are in a situation where you begin to feel powerless and less than another, this can be viewed as a wake-up call. We are referring here to any situation in which you feel devalued, not necessarily one of obvious abuse.
If there is another person who wants to have a certain level of power over you, consciously or unconsciously, your physical body is often a good indicator that something is not right. You may notice a feeling of discomfort in your solar plexus area. Perhaps a weight descends on your shoulders, and your head hangs down. Paying attention to your bodily discomfort can help you become aware and allow you to disengage yourself from the situation.
When you feel strong in yourself, you are less likely to stay in situations that may harm you, or allow others to treat you with disrespect. You do not have to stay in places or around people who do not give you the respect you deserve. However, it is also not necessary to react in anger. As much as possible, stay in your heart, bless the person or people involved and remove yourself from the situation.
When you feel strong within, good about yourself and centered, the area of your solar plexus is filled with energy. When you begin to feel drained, that is literally what is happening to you. When we say no one has power over you unless you allow it to happen, this is the first place where your power is given away. It is now time to take it back.
Sometimes people become so used to being devalued, disempowered and talked down to, they accept this as a natural state. It is not. Every soul on earth deserves to be treated with respect. To stay strong in yourself, steps must be taken so that you feel your inner power, that connection to the light of Pure Spirit that is within you. The solar plexus is the area most affected by the power maneuvers of another person, so the following visualization is helpful in achieving and maintaining your center of balance.
Breathe with conscious awareness into the area from your rib cage to below your navel. Imagine this area filled with the warm glow of a huge sun and allow this bright, golden light to radiate out from this place within you and to fill your entire being. Then see or feel this light moving from the base of your spine into the earth, so you can be connected to that rich, nurturing and grounding presence. Continue visualizing the golden light of the sun filling your solar plexus, centering you with a clear, steadying power that will allow you to take the necessary steps to care for yourself. With practice, you can draw on the calming power of this light and the steadying presence of the earth whenever needed.
Begin today to respect yourself. Know that you are a radiant child of God and that you have purpose, presence and connection to all the love in the universe. Call on your Guardian Angels at all times and know that you are guided and protected by the light of God. Begin to know your personal connection to a Higher Power, the true power containing all the energy you need to do whatever is required in your life. Fill yourself with the golden light of the sun and feel the nurturing presence of the earth beneath your feet. Reclaim your true power and remember you are never alone.
Your message from Archangel Gabriel today is:
No one has power over you unless you allow it to happen.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Up-Level Your Manifestations
Dear Ones, it is time to up-level your manifestations. When you try to create within what is already known, or within what you think is possible, you limit yourselves. If you have been feeling like you don’t know where to go or what to do next, it is because you have already gone as far as you can in the energies of the known.
The old method of manifestation, which involves holding a very specific vision of what you want, does work, but it is still playing within the energy of the known. That method involves micro-managing the universe, and completely limits what you are willing to receive. It is like having access to an entire ocean, but only being willing to accept what can trickle through a straw.
But you are pioneers, and your soul craves expansion! It is time to allow yourself to be led into the discovery of what exists for you just beyond what you can see, in the realm of potentiality. You get there by casting your net wider, being curious, and by being willing to be led. It involves letting go of all expectations and attachments to things looking a certain way.
It means allowing your soul, and your guides, to reveal the highest matches for you that you never could have dreamed existed. It is through your broad intention and willingness to move forward, even if you don’t know where you are going, that you become a truly empowered co-creator with a universe that adores you.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Your Most Expansive Creations
Your highest creations do not come from having all of the pieces laid out neatly in front of you.
Your truest, most expansive creations come from following the calling of your heart and allowing the unfoldment to bring the pieces and next steps into your awareness. There is nothing more magical than allowing your broad intention to take on form, because it will invariably be so much more than you could ever have imagined from your starting point.
It is an act of great love, both for you and the collective, to be brave enough to open to the discovery of what exists for you just beyond what you can see, because that is exactly what blazes trails into new, viable potentials that everyone can benefit from, and which continues to drive the shift of consciousness on your planet.
When we suggest for you to accept what is, we mean to be lovingly aware of all situations occurring in and around you — both personally and globally. This means to accept the appearance of what is occurring, without judgment. There is a greater truth underlying all things, no matter how it appears. When you accept a situation as it is, it allows you to release any attachment to having it be different. It is this attachment that can cause you pain.
Just as a child grows and blossoms when in an atmosphere of acceptance and love, so does our world become more expansive and creative when we bring to it this energy of acceptance. When we try to force a child to do what we want, when we have great attachment to his or her behavior conforming to our idea of what is appropriate, the child’s energy is restricted. There is no freedom to express the expansiveness of individual creativity.
This also happens to the adult. When there is too much judgment about behaviors and actions in the world, there can be no free-flowing expression of the creativity and love inherent within each person. This does not mean to be tolerant of behavior that is destructive. It means to be aware of the way things appear, to remember the greater truth, to ask for the qualities we would prefer to have manifest, and then to release our attachment. This allows God and the Angels to begin to work in and through all things.
When you release a person or a situation to Spirit, you allow them to be in the Divine Flow taking them to their highest good. Know that even though you have prayed for the greater good, you do not know precisely what this will look like. This is where faith comes in. No matter how something appears, if you have prayed, that prayer is being answered. It does not assist things for you to be attached to the outcome. Know that Infinite Intelligence is working, creating change in the direction of balance and harmony. If there is more that you can do, trust that you will be guided to know this through your intuition.
Acceptance and Allowance are two of the greatest powers available to you. These two energies free you to live in the expansiveness that is your divine birthright. When you are in Alignment with the Divine working in your being, you have an expanded perspective about life, there is greater freedom to express the dynamic, creative qualities inherent within you. There is greater love, for yourself and for all others. You also will feel connected to your Higher Self, which brings about great joy.
It is as the Master Jesus said, “Know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today:
Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Your Highest Life Expression
As you move further and further into the energies of the new year, you are being called to live your life authentically and to follow your innermost yearnings. Unfortunately, many of you have been taught to suppress those desires very early in life in order to please others. Even though you are adults now and in charge of your life expression, many of you haven’t given yourselves the time or the space to identify what you truly desire and what would be the truest match to you.
If this is the case, we offer you this question. If you didn’t know a single soul on the planet and there was no one to offer opinions or judgements on your decisions, what would you choose to do? Where would you live? What would you do for fun? What would light you up and make you feel brilliantly alive?
We urge you to ask these questions, not because we are encouraging you to abandon your life but because we are wanting you to identify what you wish to add into your life expression. If you fear doing this exercise would make you selfish or do something out of integrity, please understand this is an exercise of consciousness and when you operate from that alignment you would never do something harmful to another.
It is time, Dear Ones. It is time to connect with your truest desires and give them time to bloom and grow, for those desires have always been meant to lead you to your highest life expression.
Just as you are shifting into the energy of the new year, so is your planet. This is why you will sometimes see earthquakes or weather events in the space between Christmas and the beginning of the new year. The planet will cleanse and release as necessary to align with the energies of the year it is entering.
As you continue to shift, giving yourself whatever you need and then getting back into a space of alignment is incredibly stabilizing, not just for you, but for your planet, as well. You and the planet are in a symbiotic relationship, with each of you being both dependent upon and supportive of the other.
So what we wish for you to understand is that every time you can find peace and balance within yourself, you serve yourself and you serve the whole. Every time the planet shifts and releases and finds its way back into balance, it serves itself and the whole. You are in a beautiful, intricate dance of mutual love and support that is absolutely breathtaking to behold.
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Adjust and Align with the New Year
You are in a space of energetic adjustment that occurs every year after the influx of Christed energies that happens over Christmas, regardless of your belief system. From that point, there is an accounting of where you are energetically and how much shifting needs to occur in order to align with the energies of the new year you wish to step into.
How you shift personally in order to align with the new year can be vast and varied. You may require more rest. You may find yourself energized or wide awake in the middle of the night. You may feel the need to move your body in specific ways or to eat certain foods. You may be drawn to visit a certain area or walk in nature.
You may feel the need to release an abundance of energy in your body, or you may have old emotions or memories come up that are ready to heal and release. You may feel lightness or you may feel heaviness. You may feel waves that come over you that make you feel moments of anxiety or moments of peace. You may laugh or cry or do both in the same day because both are absolutely wonderful methods of release!
What we wish for you to understand is that all of this is perfectly normal and you are absolutely capable of moving through all of it. Trust the wisdom of your body and the wisdom of your soul. You have prepared well for the times you are in now. Move with the flow of the unfoldment with confidence, curiosity, and excitement because there is progress, and purpose, to it all.
The Divine Presence is an energy which is omnipotent, everywhere present and has infinite capacity for good. This energy flows through you and surrounds you at all times. There is never a time when you are not a part of this energy flow of God, which is Divine Love. In this you can place your trust. You can also be assured that regardless of where you are or what the situation is, all energies flow to the highest good for all concerned, at all times.
You can set an intention in your mind or on paper for what you want to see manifest in your life. This gives direction to the universal flow of energy. It’s like holding a vision of your target in your mind, and then taking aim with a bow and arrow. When you release the arrow, you trust it will go where you aim it. The power of God is the energy behind the release of the arrow, but you are the one who takes aim. When you clearly know what qualities you want in your life and can keep your focus, this Universal energy will flow where you want it, following the direction of your intention.
The qualities we refer to are qualities of consciousness — such as Peace, Love, Harmony, Well-being, Divine Order and Abundance. All these words have been used to describe qualities of the Higher Power, and as they manifest through the universal flow of energy in your life, they create the perfect outworking of your soul’s expression in every situation. When you hold these divine qualities as your intention, creative solutions miraculously appear.
God wants you to experience happiness, love and all that is good. You have a divine right to ask for these qualities to manifest. Regardless of your circumstance, begin now to be very clear about what qualities you want in your life. Write them down. Post them in a place where you will be reminded. You can set the course for your life in this way. Review your intentions often and remain aware of them when circumstances seem upsetting. It is in those moments of upset that you can clearly ask for a Creative Solution to manifest. After that, you need to let go and trust.
The grace of God is available to all who ask, know what qualities they want to manifest in their lives, and can open to trusting the process. Remember your guidance for today:
Trust in the universal flow of good and know there is a Creative Solution in all situations
Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young ~ Internal Expansion
A great many of you are considering yourselves stuck. Dear Ones, you are beings of growth and evolution. The idea that you can be stuck is a myth.
What you experience is either internal growth or external growth. Internal growth is much more difficult to track and quantify, because its effects may seem more subtle. Because you are always with yourself, you don’t tend to notice the incremental changes that occur. You are also not able to see the shifts in energy you are embodying from your vantage point.
External growth is a much more tangible experience, because you can see and measure the change. But what you need to understand is that external growth is a reflection of your internal growth.
So what about the people you see who seem to never change, and who continue to make decisions that take them to less-than-desirable outcomes? They are also moving towards expansion, because ultimately, their choices will lead them to such an uncomfortable place that it will become impossible for them to stay the same. From that point, they will surrender, and true change can occur. For some people, the fastest way to real expansion comes from hitting an energetic bottom first.
If you are already on a path of conscious awareness, you will not need an energetic bottom to get your attention. You are already embracing growth and expansion. So if you find yourself in a phase where it seems like nothing is happening, rest easy in the fact that you are in a phase of internal expansion that is sure to be followed by external proof of the work that you have done.
That is the way of the flow of the universe, and it’s designed to assure your success. So rather than worry, we highly recommend that you use your time to rest, to give your feedback to the universe through your focus and gratitude, and to open to the unfoldment of your most heartfelt dreams.
