The Gabriel Message card for this week
Gently and with Love, Honor Yourself
When I received this message from Archangel Gabriel in the early 1990s, I had no idea what honoring myself meant.
I was raised in a military family, and that patriarchal system had no room for honoring of the feminine. They had many strict rules that I rebelled against when I was there. Ironically, when I was no longer there, I found that I had adopted those same rules as my inner voice! I became a hard taskmaster, requiring perfection for myself. I was merciless when I failed to achieve that status…which was always. This caused me to continuously feel I was not good enough.
It was becoming painfully obvious by the time I was 50 that being hard on myself was not helping. After all, if I had not whipped myself into enlightenment by that time, it was clearly not going to work. It was only after a collapse of all the structures of my life in the tumultuous year of 1999 that I began to discover the power of having compassion for myself.
The Angels said to me, “Allow yourself to be enfolded in Wings of Pure Love.” It was so sweet sounding, and I had a very great need by that time to let myself surrender and be blessed. I started bringing more Grace into my body and found to my surprise that allowing myself to receive Divine Love was the most nourishing thing I had ever done.
I was always one to give others kindness and compassion. Giving myself what I would give to others turned into a new experience for me. I found that Compassion has a very high frequency of energy that could empower me on new levels.
In fact, that compassion led me to actually loving myself in a true and honest way. I have heard that the love we give ourselves is healing our connection to Nature. This seems so important to me. We are meant to be a true blended being, bridging Heaven and Earth by bringing our most expansive connection to Source into our bodies to blend with our most human selves. In this way, everyone will live in harmony within themselves and with all life on the planet. This idea so inspires me and answers many questions about how to bring about a peaceful and thriving co-existence on Earth.
This honoring of myself expanded my field of consciousness and created a greater connection to my Higher Self. It enabled me to hear the true, sweet and authentic voice of my inner guidance showing me new ways to live that honored who I am as well as the deepest Truth of my Soul. And from this place I can, gently and with love, honor all of life.
The Gabriel Message #1
Gently and with love, honor yourself.
You are sometimes kinder to total strangers than you are to yourself. You are a magnificent being of light. Honor and remember this, for it is not easy to be in an earth-body. There are many demands on you. You can be so involved with day-to-day struggles that you do not feel you have time to remember your spirit. And yet it is the focus on your spirit that will make your earth-walk easier.
Honor yourself in gentleness and love. You are not alone. The Infinite Presence has not placed you onto the earth plane without a way of receiving assistance when you most need it. That is why there are Angels. Angels are messengers from God who are here to assist in making your earthly life more effortless, to bring light into the darkness, and to remind you that you are incredibly loved.
We know of your struggle, and we know that you are making a valiant effort. We bless you and honor you for all that you have done and are doing. But more than that, we honor you for who you are deep inside. We honor that part of you that holds the essence of your soul. We see within you a spark of incredible goodness and love. This we bless and honor and we urge you to do the same. The more you bless and honor this Divine Light within you, the more it grows. The more this light grows, the more love you feel and the more energy you have. The more love you feel within you, the more you want to give to others. In this way the world is served and more light is brought to your beautiful planet, which is in need of great blessings at this time.
We ask you to be gentle with yourself, to be as kind to yourself as you are to others. Without love and encouragement a little child cannot grow to be a healthy adult. Yet you never outgrow your need for love — and remember, it is important to give yourself this love first, before you can fully give it to others.
How does one love oneself? You can start with the small things. Say, “I love you” to yourself whenever you look into a mirror. Remember to give yourself daily acknowledgment for how hard you work, for how much effort you give to another, for how caring you are to your children. For whatever you can think of, acknowledge yourself. If you cannot think of anything, simply acknowledge yourself for getting through another day on earth and doing the best you can do. As simple as this may seem, it is very powerful.
The most important way you can love and honor yourself is by remembering who you are deep inside — a radiant spirit of light growing stronger and more whole every day. This is the truth of you. You can love yourself by eating in healthy ways and doing all that you know serves your body, but true loving and honoring begins with your feelings about yourself. You are here on earth to express the Infinite in form and to learn to be loving, joyful and peaceful. It does no good to berate yourself because you are not yet perfectly expressing these qualities. You were not given a manual for life on earth, so the only way you can learn is through trial and error, and by often painful experiences which encourage you to grow through the choices you make. The choices you make and who you are makes a difference on the Earth. Please honor this.
There are many ways you can gently love and honor yourself. We ask you to give yourself kindness and compassion, to do the best you can with all aspects of your life, and to call on a Higher Power to assist you at all times, no matter how mundane the situation. The Angels are Divine messengers here to help you, bless you and most of all, love you. Receive this love and remember to:
Gently and with love, honor yourself.
Shanta Gabriel, 2014
Essence of the Month ~ Waters of the World
Water is so precious to us that pure water has become a sought-after commodity — as profit for some and life’s blood for others.
Many parts of the world, including California where Shanta lives, is suffering from drought, making the subject of water even more intense at this time. Many ceremonies and prayers are being said for the waters of the world right now that they may be purified and allowed to run free, available for the needs of the many.
Our bodies are made up of more than 90% water, so whenever we are blessing the water, we are also blessing our inner beings. Dr. Emoto in Japan has made beautiful studies of the ice crystals that formed when different words and intentions were placed on the water. This makes our attention to the water we take into our bodies more profoundly important so that we might take in the highest frequencies we can on a daily basis to enhance our well-being. Through this Essence of Divine Light, you naturally bless your body as well as all the waters of the world with your conscious awareness and intention.
WATERS OF THE WORLD
This essence encompasses the crystalline resonance of water present in the cells of all people, creatures and growing things on this beautiful planet. As all are linked energetically and spiritually within their hearts, so also is there a link to the waters of all the streams, lakes, rivers, and oceans of the world. All water is held in the soothing, flowing waves of the Ocean of Conscious Light. Through this essence you embrace Love in your heart, and restore your link to the Divine Blueprint for Perfection in all the waters on the planet Earth.

Accessing the Wisdom of the Heart Program
The Archangel’s Teachings for Higher Consciousness
Since the Summer Solstice there has been an opening in your energy field to allow a new connection to the gifts and talents your soul is bringing to earth. For me, this is a deepening of my 25-year connection to the Archangels with new teachings to share in my classes and private sessions. It has been a little scary to trust to this depth, but I am inspired by how people have been receiving this new level of connection.
Accessing the Wisdom of the Heart requires a strong core alignment from Heaven to Earth. The Archangels are providing activations that allow you to build a stronger connection within your being and begin the process of creating a new Light Body.
In each class you will be working with Archangels and their channeled information. This is unlike anything I have ever done in the past and all those who have studied with me will benefit from these new levels of teachings. Through this work you will be able to bring your Soulʼs gifts into alignment with your physical world.
This 3-class series started September 4 for three Thursdays – 9/4, 9/11, 9/18. It is not too late to join, as all teleclasses are recorded. Together we will access the new frontiers as the Archangels support our awakening on the Earth.
