Gillian MacBeth-Louthan ~ From Your Hostess of Light, Gillian
Hey Ya’ll I do not know about you but my cosmic butt has been kicked so much it can wear skinny jeans! I thought that after holding and working for the light for over half a century it would get a little easier. There is no easy street in deep space for sure. Every dang molecule is battling with itself and its right to be alive in whatever form. All livingness responds to the call for regeneration. The pollywog is no longer happy being a tadpole. The caterpillar demands to become a butterfly and life demands everything else in between.
We pray, we take out the cosmic trash, we mediate, we chop wood and carry water. We hold a heart space for the world and some days it feels as if we need to wear chain-mail undergarments just to go to the grocery. So many have shut themselves away because that is the easier choice, ask any old incarnated hermit or monk. To me it is like the’ knights templar hiding behind the Magdalene’s skirt.’
Even the stealthy fox has to change its colors to align with the global adjustments. There are no personalities involved in these upcoming shifts, only the need for propulsion out of this dimensional warp.
As great emotional gases come to the surface, like old faithful erupting out -of -sync and line-dancing with a new time partner. What lies beneath bubbles to the surface, allowing what is noxious to escape, both people and planet. When the inner earth gases meet the outer earth gases a new tempo is created. Like the temples of old in Delphi many an oracle can attest to ‘a deep earth knowing’ supplied by inner earth fumes escaping. As the world huffs and puffs and shows her true colors everyone all will know what Mother Earth has to say.
Now is the time to be led by the Angels of Light
We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.
For this week's issue, the message from Archangel Gabriel is letting us know there are gifts from the Angelic Dimensions offered to us when we are willing to let go of fear and open to Faith.
The Gabriel Message Card for this week Now is the time for those who believe to let go of fear and reach their hand forward to be held and led by the Angels of Light.
To me, this message represents the epitome of Faith and the essence of Archangel Gabriel's teachings. It provides a coaching for the correct attitude to hold as we take our first steps into the unknown promise of our lives.
I clearly remember receiving the meditation that is part of the practice Archangel Gabriel gave that is available in the expanded message below. It is very unusual for me to have this memory, but the receiving of this message was a profoundly visceral experience. I had a perception of vastness beneath my feet, felt the cool wind of the high mountaintop in my face, and could see the eagles flying below me. The Angels were there in the void space inviting me to move beyond my fear and into their waiting arms.
Have you heard the spiritual adage that when we take one step toward God, the Divine takes 10 steps toward us? This was that moment. The Angels were looking at me with so much love in their eyes that my heart began to trust at a very deep level and I KNEW I would be supported if I could just take a Leap of Faith.
This metaphoric leap empty-handed into the abyss sounds hugely frightening, but that is what is being asked of us during these unprecedented times of awakening consciousness. In that Holy Moment, I was told that if I had enough faith, I could fly with the Angels.
We are all being offered this powerful invitation now. When we can walk into the unknown promise of our new lives with more Trust and Faith, even though we are afraid, we will be protected and feel supported enough to fly with the Angels.
This message seems so perfect for the transition we are making into this energetically quickened time in which we live. Every year since 2012 seems to be a year of transition, especially for the consciousness of all humanity. We are learning to face the unknown in a new way. It is one that requires radical Faith in our ability to follow our intuition, knowing we are not alone and trusting that we are being guided and led on our path of New Life Awakening.
Thank you for supporting me as I take these tentative steps in the Unknown. Help me to strengthen my faith and really know deep within me that I am not alone.
I am asking to have a strong sense of belonging, truth and belief in my heart so I can have the courage to bring my soul’s gifts into the world. Give me the confidence to share from my heart in every situation that invites me to openly express myself. May all beings feel greater Faith in their hearts and know they are not alone.
Thank you for holding me in your Wings of Pure Love in every moment. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages #6
Now is the time for those who believe to let go of fear and reach their hand forward to be held and led by the Angels of Light.
When you resolve to let go of fear, an amazing energy is set into motion. It is as though hands of Angels join together in circles of light around you, keeping you protected and nurtured. When you walk, you are carried by these Angels “lest you strike your foot against a stone,” as is said in Psalm 91.
Sometimes letting go of fear can feel as though you are walking off a cliff. However, it is often necessary to take this large step in order to make the greatest progress in your life. When your intention is to serve the Highest Good in all you do, and when you have the willingness to move through your fear of the unknown, this step off a cliff will be into the arms of these magnificent beings of light. Angels will assist you to fly to the heights of grandeur and to the depths of peace.
The saying “there is nothing to fear but fear itself” is true. Fear can play in your imagination until you are immobilized. From this place you can easily sink into the pits of despair. It will feel as though you are not moving toward your destiny, and that is the most fear-filled place of all. This fear will play upon your issues of worthiness, because in your heart you want most of all to add value to the world.
Know truly that you were created to be happy. Feeling joy is one of the greatest tasks you have in your life. You are here to do great things, and this can be as simple as loving others and bringing more peace and joy to the world. When you have joy as your intention, you will be shown what you need to do in order to manifest it.
Take some time to sit quietly and breathe in a balanced way. Imagine that you are standing on a mountaintop. It is the highest peak around you. It is so high that eagles are flying below where you are standing. There is a magnificent sunrise lighting up the sky and surrounding your body with golden light.
From this pinnacle of light, you offer yourself to serve God in the world and you ask for courage to do whatever it takes. You call on the Angels for assistance to be all you can be. At this moment you hear the sound of wings and you notice the light becoming even brighter. You are surrounded by Angels and you feel your fear melting with their love. They are holding out their hands to you. Because it is such a reach to touch them, it is difficult to keep your footing. In order to touch the hands of the Angels, you know you are going to have to take a step off the cliff. You feel all the old fears beginning to surface again. This time, you will not give in to fear. Your conviction to have love and joy in your life and to serve in the world is greater than the fear.
You take a deep breath, and look into the eyes of the Angels surrounding you. You see a hand of light reaching toward you and a beaming presence of love smiling at you. The Angels are saying they believe in you, they love you, and they know you can have whatever you want to experience. In this moment, you know that the safety of that which is familiar cannot bring you the joy and the power of love you are feeling from the Angels. Looking at the hands being offered, you let the love you are feeling in your heart uplift you, and you reach your own hands toward the Angels of Light. You take the first step.
In this moment of free fall, your heart begins to pound. But it is only an instant before arms hold you and you feel yourself being transported into the light. The Angels are taking you with them. Let yourself imagine what it would be like to fly with the Angels. Feel the warmth of the sun, the wind in your hair and let yourself be held and led where they will take you. Know in your heart it is to your greatest good. Allow yourself to fly with the Angels. Feel the freedom that is there for you and let Divine love fill your heart.
Take a look at where you are held back by fear, and see the darkness there. Are you willing to have it be different now? There is help for you. Angelic assistance is available. This simple visualization exercise can have miraculous results. It is your choice to take the first step by being willing to have a miracle change your life.
It is time for you to decide. Do you want to serve God and let the Angels help you fly? Are you willing to have miracles and joy fill your life? Do you believe miracles are possible and Angels exist? If your answer is yes — know that…
This is the time for those who believe to let go of fear and reach their hand forward to be held and led by the Angels of Light.

Mike Quinsey 3/10/2017
You have been told many times that nothing is really as it seems as you have created your own reality. It reflects exactly how you have understood your needs and how to cater for them. You have also been inspired to seek the best results that will have gradually moved you onwards and upwards at an ever increasing pace. Progress has of course been ably assisted by the incarnation of souls who have been able to inspire you to greater and better things. However, as you all have freewill the final choice has been yours, but those who have ruled from high positions have not always made decisions that have been in your best interests. For century after century you have been subjected to many wars and the resultant death and chaos, that has been coming again and again on the wheel of cause and effect.
However, of recent times a new level of consciousness has become sufficiently powerful to provide the energies of change. As a result the people have spoken and are demanding a new path for Humanity that leads to peace on Earth. You have been made aware of the many demonstrations against the authorities that tend to ignore the will of the people. They will continue to take place until their demands are listened to and action taken. Be assured that you the people have enormous power to affect change, so use it wisely and you will reap success.
Meantime, more changes that will aid your advancement are becoming made known, and many that have been deliberately suppressed will also be unveiled. Progress into the New Age will come regardless of any attempts by the dark Ones to stop it. It is becoming evident that you are beginning to identify the shortcomings in various industries that seem to have stagnated, and still living in the past. Much of that is because they do not wish to give up lucrative sources of profit, and in so doing deny you progress into the New Age that could offer you a far better deal. Change will however come whether or not it is welcomed by them, as it is time to move on and enjoy the benefits of improvements and inventions that will lift up the quality of your lives.
With the leaking of official documents you are being given sight of information that the secret services would prefer that you did not see. They are revealing how the people of Earth are gradually being less able to enjoy privacy, and are being spied upon whilst carrying out normal every day functions. Such revelations are made possible through people you call “whistle blowers” who are protected because of their important work. They have revealed exactly what has been occurring and it is important that you know. It shows that secret activities have gone beyond the necessity for them and infringed upon your rights. The more things are uncovered the more you will demand a stop to the spying, and eventually it will be so. In the future when the vibrations have lifted up, there will be no necessity for such methods of control.
By visualising the future you bring it into being, so the more people that know the truth the quicker it shall manifest. The energy of your thoughts is constantly shaping your future, and as time passes it will become essential that you maintain a positive level where such things are concerned. Thoughts are real and have always shaped your future, and as the vibrations lift up will become much more potent. For example you will become healers using your power of thought and even greater things, and that is why you sometimes use the phrase “that faith can move mountains”. In fact in the future your power of thought will enable you to perform instant healing, and with your power of visualisation to also replicate items. You are already creating for your future, so be careful what you wish for as it may come true.
As you begin to understand more about your true potential, so your thoughts will become more specific and purposeful. The more you can see every living form in terms of Universal Love, the more you will contribute to the harmony and love around you. Life becomes a joy and so rewarding that you enjoy constant happiness. Needless to say, it is obviously helped by the presence of other souls who are also of a higher vibration. The cycle that you have just completed is a pale reflection of your true reality, but from here on things are changing for the better as the vibrations continue to rise up.
For eons of time you have had successive incarnations where you have been held down, and led to believe that you were subservient to those in power. However, with your recent awakening you have realised that you have so much more potential that has been held back. Given the opportunity you will now progress at a quicker rate and achieve whatever goals you aim for, with no limit to your ambitions. Naturally since the advent of education for all people, the Human Race has been able to achieve greater and quicker advancements. In time you could be “programmed” for whatever tasks you have elected to carry out, thus saving an enormous amount of time.
It is as well that you learn of how the future for mankind is likely to develop, and in that way you can prepare for whatever path you choose. The opportunities are endless and it is as well to remind you that you will have more than ample time to experience whatever you have planned. The Earth has been a school for those who have aspired to greater things than it had to offer, and it is your experiences that will have prepared you for your intended future.
Follow your own intuition as to the best way to advance yourself, as each soul is unique and has its own path to follow. Some may be very similar and at times you may unite with other souls who are like you. At all times you will get plenty of help and need not concern yourself as to how you will achieve your ambitions. The Earth souls are only a short way along the path of evolution and will get help to make progress as required to continue it.
Once you know exactly what you want out of life on Earth, your plans will become focussed upon success and there is no reason why you should not succeed. All souls get the same opportunity to continue their evolution, and failure does not come into it as you are helped all of the way.
I leave you with love and blessings, and may the Light brighten your days and path to completion. This message comes through my Higher Self.
In Love and Light. Mike Quinsey.
Choices - 06-Mar-2017
Kara Schallock, sousticerising.com
As a reminder, I share only what Soul shares with me and only when I'm guided. If you resonate with this, wonderful; if you do not; wonderful. We are all in different stages of Ascension and Ascension Notes serve as a general guideline. These are not predictions or rules, as these don't exist in the New.
There are some who think that things should look differently. They may ask, “Where's the Joy? Where's the Love? Where's the Peace?” Joy, Love and Peace are within. If you look outside of yourself for proof, you will be disappointed, for the New is within you. And when you realize this, it changes your perception and then you see that your own Love, Peace and Joy affect everything you see. The New must be within you before anything out in the world can be infused with higher Light. What are you aligned with? If you are aligned with the world not filled with Love, Peace and Joy, then that is what you experience. If you are aligned with your inner Peace, inner Joy and inner Love, then you align with that and you see the outer with this perspective. It is all within. If your own life does not reflect that which you desire, what are you aligned with...what is wrong or what is right? Are you appreciative of all in your life? When you are in Appreciation, you expand those things you want...inner Peace, Love and Joy.
Being fully you, all is illuminated; those areas that are not Love are illuminated and brought to the forefront so that they may transform into Love. What still remains in you that is still in fear? Where do you still hold back in fear or doubt? Where do you compromise yourself; where are you not authentic? These are areas that call to you so that you may release them and be fully who you are. Choose Love; transform fear.
As we move beyond the eclipses of February and move toward the Equinox, we have an Opportunity to be more Love and to release more of what is not Love. The eclipses brought change and our Sensitivity upgraded, so that we are more awake and more aware and we know what needs to go and where we resist. There is an Opportunity to receive new paths as well as opportunities to let go of old beliefs, patterns and emotions.
We have been in an intense healing phase where much change has taken place. We have had a potential Opportunity to let go more of how we have held ourselves back in the old; not fully trusting that the New is all that and more. Eclipses help us to do this, if we listen and pay attention and don't dig our heels in, refusing to be more. Eclipses help us to go deeper than where we have gone before; they help us spiral into more layers of that which we have claimed change. Anytime we have our inner voice say, “Yes, but...” be assured there are deeper, core issues being exposed. There are no assurances with the New in that if you want a promise that things will be better and shinier if you let go of the old you; the little you; you won't receive that. Yet, if you trust as you take each step forward, you will see that you need not live a life that is filled with suffering or pain. It is all up to you; nothing is done for you and you must make the choice to more forward. As you do, each step shines a light on what is necessary to let go of and what Beauty to integrate. If you align yourself with Love, anything that is not Love will bubble forth so that you may release it to the Light.
These last eclipses shake us up, so that we can move in the direction of our Soul's Guidance. The coming Equinox empowers this and then in August, we may complete what was begun during the February eclipses. Eclipses and the Equinox are extremely charged with high dimensional energies, yet it is up to us to use this energy to move forward. We truly have choice, even if it seems like we don't. All is choice, whether it is a conscious or subconscious choice or a Soul choice. When we realize this, we understand that we are not victims, for how can we be a victim when all is our choice? Every choice also has Awareness within it. If you don't like your choice, look beneath the surface for Awareness and see where the choice leads you. This could show you areas that are toxic or where you are guided to let go or where to take a step toward something. An eclipse can make you more uncomfortable in a job, a relationship or anything that is holding you back. It is uncomfortable when you resist change or when you are in a new situation that feels like it's a place that knocks you out of your comfort zone. Yet, if you can allows that discomfort for a bit, it will guide you forward. Many experience a desire to move to a different area or begin something new or end something old. This is guidance because perhaps you have outgrown your present life. Just realize that all is for your highest evolution, so trust your guidance and your Intuition.
When you are aligned with Soul, you will hear guidance through your Intuition. If you're like me, guidance from Soul doesn't occur and then leave. It stays with you, so just be still for a bit and then take a step forward. Soul's guidance stays, while separate ego's “guidance” is fleeting. You feel Soul's guidance, while separate ego's guidance is more in the head based on old thoughts and beliefs. Separate ego does not want forward movement; it wants to keep you in the past, for its job is to protect you in the only way it knows...by keeping you from moving forward or changing.
Once you make a decision and act on it, all that must be cleared will be brought forth. For instance, if you move to a place you're guided to go, you will be in an adjustment period. You may have to adjust to a new energy and it may feel as though you're starting all over again. Actually, you are. When I got the call to move to Idaho from Southern California, I had to adjust to a difference in consciousness and density. It was not easy because I expected things to just flow, yet how can I just continue a lifestyle and consciousness when beginning a new life? Everything must shift. My old life kept trying to pull me back and certainly I thought, “Oh, what have I done?!?” This was separate ego rebelling. Whether you feel guided to move or leave a situation or start something new by ending something old, let go of your assumptions and expectations and allow what needs to shift; this is flowing with what is. The adjustment period is more about releasing the past than it is about making a “mistake.” There truly are no mistakes; only choices and each choice crates a new path; a new life.
As we each choose to move up in consciousness, our cells and DNA also move up to match our new consciousness. Our cells carry thoughts; old thoughts and old beliefs. If we don't change, our cells continue to create from these old thoughts and beliefs. As we have new thoughts, they replace the old ones in our cells and then we have new experiences. Our DNA then becomes new as we let go of old thoughts and beliefs. Our DNA then matches a new way of being without the old generational karma and all that was created in past lives. We need not try and figure out what to replace the old with, for it happens naturally as we allow our consciousness to rise. As we align with our Intuition and follow our Heart/Soul's guidance and we keep our thoughts high, our consciousness rises and then our cells and DNA match it. Our consciousness rises when we receive downloads of Light, when we meditate and when we follow our guidance. We then have a new perspective and from this new perspective, New Life is created. As we commit to this, our Light flows out in all directions, touching all of life. So the focus is to be all you are and have every choice you make reflect this.
The adjustment period of integrating the new energies may feel as though you're not grounded and you may feel rather spacey. You may also experience other things as well...headaches, nausea, dizziness, etc. It helps to ground to the Earth and to the higher dimensions by simply intending to be grounded to it all, with your body being conduit between Heaven and Earth. As above, so below. As within, so without. Trust your process. There are times when you barely eat and other times when it seems you can't eat enough. Keep your food healthy, drink lots of water, rest and get into Nature. Release any confusion, judgment, fear and other low energies in the Sacred Rose and just Be in the Moment without wondering what's ahead. Be in Gratitude for all that is occurring in your life...within and without. This is how you stay grounded and how you integrate the higher energies. You are New.
“I am in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.”
Today I want to talk to you about clearing out “old tapes.” Old tapes used to run my life. Most people have about 25,000 hours of parent tapes running through them. Many of these old tapes had a lot of negative messages in them, lots of criticism and ‘shoulds.’ Now I am choosing to erase and retape new positive messages. I listen to my inner thoughts and when I catch one that makes me uncomfortable, I turn it around. I retape the old messages. You don’t have to obediently listen to the old stuff. Just retape. I know I am a capable person. I know I am worth loving. I really believe I am worthy of a wonderful life. I have a purpose being here. I have the power to change the tapes. Those old, negative messages are not the truth of my Being.
Nothing is more powerful than our own inner voice. I always have the power of my mind: I claim and consciously use my power!
So much comes at us every day, from work, our personal life, and the news. Once we learn to control the tapes that we listen to, we bring control, grace and balance to our lives. We believe what we hear from those we trust and who should we trust more than ourselves? So if those old tapes are telling us we are too slow, too fat, too stupid, too fearful or unqualified…of course we’re going to believe it. I know I did!
“Not only do self-love and love of others go hand in hand but ultimately they are indistinguishable.”
~ M. Scott Peck
So I take a close look at that inner voice and decide to retape. I say to myself, I am willing to release the need to be unworthy. I am worthy of the very best in life, and I now lovingly allow myself to accept it. I say it until it became my new definition of myself. Once we do this our whole self-worth shifts to the positive. Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens. You’ll be amazed how much better you feel. And if the old tapes sneak back, just remind yourself, “I am the only thinker in my mind. I create my own reality and everyone in it.”
When you begin to recognize those old tapes you’ve been playing, and you learn to rewrite them, now begin to practice being grateful for the new you. I have noticed that the Universe loves gratitude. Appreciation and acceptance act like powerful magnets for miracles every moment of the day. When we expand our thinking and beliefs our love flows freely. Remember the last time when you were in love, what a wonderful feeling it was? It is the same with loving yourself. And you will be with you for the rest of your life, so you want to make it the best relationship that you can. Remember to tell yourself, “All is well. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation, only good will come. I am safe."
War & Peace on Social Media
by Alexander Bell
The potential for friendship on this planet is phenomenal. We know that there are over 7 billion people alive on this beautiful planet, and just imagine how it would feel to know that every single one of them was a friend. Just imagine if you held no grievances towards even a single person on the planet; that you felt only good-will towards all living beings. Well, you can.
Now, I am not saying this is easy, because we are challenged on a daily basis to remain tolerant, understanding and compassionate with the people we interact with, both on social media and in the real world.
For many, it can be particularly tempting to slip into hostile communications on social media, because it is a place where so many opinions are shared, and often with people who do not even know us personally, so that people can react rudely or unkindly even to something which was intended to be positive and constructive.
If someone disagrees with your opinion on social media, they often think nothing of insulting you in a very confrontational way. But this is an ever-present danger with opinions. They divide people. Of course, if your opinions are popular ones then you may have more positive responses than negative, but there will always be people who disagree with you, and will tell you so. And when they do, how do you respond? Maturely and respectfully? Or does the communication degrade into childish insults, as our ego gets a grip on us and influences our responses?
These are the many tests we face in our communications with others, and especially with this being the age of communication. Never before have our words and our opinions been available to so many people worldwide, as they are now thanks to information technology and social media.
So now more than ever, we need to learn the art of maintaining harmonious communications, by putting our ego aside, being more tolerant of the opinions of others, and being humble enough to say, “What I think is not so important..”
Because in truth, what we think is not so important that we should let it create a sense of conflict between ourselves and another person. Inter-personal harmony should always be the priority, because we have to carry around the feelings that result from our communications with others. Depending on how we communicate, we can either carry around the positive feelings and the clear conscience that comes from being understanding and tolerant in our communications, or we can carry the feeling of agitation and hostility that comes from trying to be ‘right’ and trying to ‘win’ the communication by putting another person down, or by being cold and insensitive with our words. We can choose. Tolerance, humility and non-reactivity will always leave us with a greater feeling of peace.
We all know how it feels when our ego clashes with another ego, and we feel the desire to be right, the desire to ‘win the battle’. The ego becomes very controlling, very clever with words and intellect; it does anything not to be wrong, because the ego does not like to be the loser, especially the ego of intelligent and strong individuals. Such an ego will rarely back down, because it cannot accept what it perceives be a ‘defeat’. In this way, petty differences of opinion about the most insignificant of things can turn into very hostile exchanges, with vitriol flying back and forth between individuals, aggression and hatred bubbling over as the original issue is forgotten, and the desire to dominate and wound the ego of the opposing party becomes the priority.
How sad it is that this should ever occur, when there is always the potential for brotherly or sisterly respect and warmth to flow between individuals in every sphere of communication. Respect is the key word here, because even if warmth is not forthcoming, at least we can respect that this fellow human being has a need to be understood, tolerated and treated respectfully. This means honouring their beliefs, their perspective and their feelings. When, as a bare minimum, respect is present in all our communications we feel the deep benefit of this. Our conscience remains clear. To know we have been respectful of another human being gives us a feeling of decency, a feeling of goodness and maturity within ourselves, and we need to feel this way.
Most people know how it feels to leave things on a ‘bad note’. It is not good to be left with a feeling of bitterness, of resentment or even hatred. These are very destructive feelings, and they destroy our peace of mind as well as the potential for positive relationships. To know that you have not forgiven someone and that you still harbour ill-will towards them leaves an imprint in your heart which affects your ability to be truly peaceful and happy. Because it is something which is unresolved, it will come back to you, over and over again until you decide to forgive that person.
And to forgive someone is actually only a matter of deciding to stop punishing them. That is all. You do not need to ‘do’ anything. Just stop wishing bad things upon them. Wish them peace instead. Hope that they may experience freedom from their suffering, from their hostilities. As you do this, you free yourself from the suffering created by your own hostility towards them.
As we forgive people (including ourselves) and we release ourselves from the hostility that comes from the desire to punish and dominate, more peace comes into our heart. The enemies that we perceived we had, disappear. There comes a point where we realise that there is no-one towards whom we bear malice. There is no-one whom we wish suffering upon.
This is a wonderful realisation, because in a very tangible way we feel that our heart has been set free from anger and hatred. We see that our mind has been freed from judgement, so that it is more able to enjoy a sense of kinship with all people. We have realised the profound importance of harmony, within our mind and within our entire being. We have opened up the possibility for an all-pervading tolerance, understanding and compassion that encompasses every living being. This is evolution. This is maturity. This is wisdom.
