The Question of Suicide from the Divine Guidance Team

SuicideBecause of my abilities as a psychic, medium and channel, the conversation of death comes up often for me. Many of the questions I receive are about the death process—where do we go? What happens to us? How are we judged? What happens to children when they die and what happens when someone takes their own life? These are the types of questions that often I and the Divine Guidance Team are asked.

Often the answers to these questions are far more complex than the space allowed here; which is why we record our Channeling Events so that the information can become available to all. But we happened across an article which we will let you read in a moment. We wanted to address just a few aspects of this woman’s actions and what the Divine Guidance Team’s opinion is surrounding the question: is suicide ever someone’s else fault?

Read the article here and then come back and finish reading our answers and insights.–230004955.html

The simple answer is: yes and no. Yes, because you are indeed responsible for other people in your life whether you want to be or not. And no, because you are only responsible for your own actions when interacting with this person. If you are the best person you can be, free from ego and full of good intentions and love, then there is little you can do to help someone who is out alignment enough with their own life that they want to leave their life.

But if you are the bully who chastises and threatens and says harsh, harmful words to another out of hatred, which is borne from fear—then indeed you are responsible for another’s harm should it lead to suicide or harmful action.

Suicide is when a person is out of alignment with their world and their life and see no other way of changing their circumstances or they are afraid of changing their circumstances~ The Divine Guidance Team.

The good news is that this young woman will get help on the Other Side. The bad news is the people who bullied her may not. And will have to live with themselves and their actions.
How you treat other people matters. How you treat yourself matters. How are you treating others and yourself today? With love, kindness and understanding? Or with fear, hatred and jealously?

Holiday Message from the Divine Guidance Team

Messages from angels and ascended mastersMost recently I was writing about the meaning of Christmas –attempting to break the word down to its original meaning which seems to be Christ’s Mass. Christ means savior or anointed one, among other meanings. Somewhere I had once read that it meant enlighten—but I no longer can find that meaning. What came forth from the writing was a holiday message from the Divine Guidance Team. Here then is that message:

From the Divine Guidance Team

Christmas is a sacred event or time period whose objective is one where you may elect to be elevated in your consciousness by being aware of your thoughts, deeds and actions in a more profound manner than at any time within the year. It is where time of deep contemplation and meditation are encouraged, of being in a place personally where one rises above their own personal suffering and human desires, so that others may receive the good will and joy of the spiritual aspects of the seasons. It is a time to learn to give and to receive –for with humility and grace towards oneself and towards all others.

It is a time of remembrance of those who have gone before us and who are today in harm’s way. It is a time to rise above our petty problems and remember others with their needs.

It is a time of reverence towards all. It is a time of celebration of the spiritual illumination in your life and that which surrounds and protects the world. It is a time to open your own heart light and let it shine forth; to remember your dreams, goals and aspirations. It is a time to reach for the stars and remember that the Creator loves you like no one else can and ever will – it simply isn’t possible.

It is a time of singing praises to those who every day reach out to help you –simply for the asking. It is time to remember the human spirit – it is truly a thing of beauty for the heavens to embrace.

Fill your heart with joy, laughter and mirth this holiday season – no matter which seasonal celebration you profess to partake in. Be with family and friends; forgive yourself and others and most importantly simply love –love your life, your family, your friends and those that surround you. You have placed most of these people there yourself, whether you like to know so or not. So you might as well love them. Love them with the Love that the Creator shows you each day with every falling leaf or crystal snowflake.

And remember, dear ones, to love yourself in this season too. For you are as unique as those leaves and snow flakes and you were placed here upon this Earth for a reason that only the Creator and you know. Your mission each and every day is to live that life to its fullest and in joy, peace, contentment and grace. Life your life as it was meant to be lived and you will find you inspire others with hope and enlightenment shall be yours as sure as there are shooting stars in the heavens at night.

This is Jesus the Christ’s season of the year; when you honor it—you honor Him and all that He truly stands for. Today Jesus is known to many as both Master Yeshua (the earthly aspect of Jesus the man) and as Master Sananda (the resurrected Jesus the Christ).

That which is Master Yeshua has come to our earthly representative and now speaks now through us:
I was not here to worship as a god, but to lead you towards a better life so you can behold the joy that I see within each one of you. In each there is a spark, a small flame, and with my words – in so many places and times and with so many meanings – that flame can grow and light your way –illuminating the path before you and snuffing out the darkness of your past. Worship the meaning of this season and not just the reason. For the reason is man-made and the meaning is true: as the winter’s darkness descends, the light of the soul stays true and remains always present within each of you. As you move towards the light, the light will grow and soon new growth of spring will be upon you and the deadness of winter behind you. Celebrate the light in each of you and know with conviction and trust that your Creator and I walk beside you each step of the way. Remain strong and loyal to your path and you will receive not only all that you ask for, but so much more—both here on earth and in heaven as well.

Be well and know you are much loved,

The Divine Guidance Team of Illuminated Engagements Centre for Whole-Being

What are Ascended Masters?

What are Ascended Masters?

Ascended Masters became masterful and achieve ascended status in a dimensional plane by first becoming masters of their own lives while being human. They did this by becoming wise, intelligent and compassionate among other human traits. They thought of others first and not themselves. They weren’t into personal gain or status. They left ego at the door.

Listed among ascended masters are various gods and goddesses as well as figures of mythology, lore and legends. Several masters are angelic in nature such as Archangel Metatron or Archangel Michael or part of nature, such as the Green Man. Some ascended masters were once human; some never were. Many of the humans had many lifetimes before they reached a status of ascended.

Among the most popular ascended masters are Archangel Michael, Quan Yin, El Morya, Serapis Bey, Hilarion, Saint Germain, Master Kuthumi, Sananda, and Melchizedek. All of these masters are popular with various people who regularly bring forth their messages from the ethers, heavens or other dimensional places of being.

I first became familiar with ascended masters when I came across the oracle card deck that was created by Doreen Virtue, the popular author and spiritual teacher on angels. This card deck, “Messages from the Ascended Masters” is a beautiful deck of oracle cards with wonderful paintings of many of the ascended masters along with a message from each master as brought forth from Dr. Virtue. This card deck is a favorite of mine and has provided me much insight and guidance prior to my accessing the Divine Guidance Team. Even now, I’ll ask a question, deck in hand and pull out a few of the top cards, to gain a quick answer and insight.

The ascended masters help those who ask for help. They are much like angels in that regard. You have to ask for help – its part of the life lesson we all must learn and it is also part of the edict of free will – it mustn’t be interfered with. Reach out simply to an ascended master by going into a meditation, grounding yourself and calling out their name or let one who is best suited to your immediate needs come to you. Ask: “Dear Master – Please come forward and help me now with my problem of …..”. Be sure to act respectful – these beings are powerful and didn’t earn the title of Master but sitting on their laurels! Be sure to say thank you – even if you didn’t get a message at first. Watch for signs that your request has been heard. Unusual items that show up 3 times are usually a sign. Often though, we aren’t watching for these signs. And we also have to decipher their meaning! That can be the most fun or frustrating part about receiving messages from divine beings and spiritual guidance.

Blake was surprised when she found she had the Ascended Master Lord Master Kuthumi on her Divine Guidance Team. She has found him to be of very wise and patient counsel and is happy he’s on her team!

What is Channeling? – Part 5

Lord Melchizedek

We’ve looked at what channelers are and are not; the methods of delivery and what it takes for a channel to be clear.

But who does a channel bring forth messages from?

Well, from high vibrational beings – not lower vibrational beings. Lower vibrational beings include ghosts and spirits and some spirit guides, which originate from earth or beyond. Spirit guidance comes in many flavors and levels. Some are not trained in proper guidance techniques, others are still in training and others have been fully trained and are qualified as higher vibration beings.

Higher vibrational beings include the angelic realm of archangels and angels, the elemental kingdom which links us to Mother Earth, to the world of ascended masters and to high level vibrational non-physical energy beings from beyond our physical Earth plane. Multi, intra and inter-dimensional beings may also fall into this category of channeled beings.

All of these high vibration beings are either semi or non-physical beings—or in other words they are typically invisible to us Earth residents. There are exceptions to this statement as often dimensional beings may appear to us when we work closely enough with them. Also some channels and mediums can see various dimensional beings, either naturally or they have been trained to do so. Think ‘Ghost Whisperer’ here.

Many channel Archangel Michael, who I also channel and is part of the Divine Guidance Team and co-founder of Illuminated Engagements. Many also are a channel for the very powerful Archangel Metatron, although according to my current research not as many as Archangel Michael. Ascended Master Lord Kuthumi is also a favorite for a handful of channels, so I feel privileged to now be counted as part of this elite group of channels. Both Archangel Metatron and Lord Master Kuthumi are part of the Divine Guidance Team.

There are many who channel a variety of the many who are Ascended Masters. Some of the more popular Ascended Masters who are channeled included Sanada, El Morya, Kwan Yin, Pallas Athena, Melchizedek, St. Germaine and Merlin, among many others.

The Orion group energies originated from the Orion solar system and appear to many channels. I was introduced to this group from one of my research books; I had done a meditation exercise and suddenly I had three new guides from Orion! They introduced themselves as Bartholomew, Malachi and Ellery. These three round out my Divine Guidance Team of Illuminated Engagements.

Other star systems have other group of non-physical entities attached to them including Arcturus, the Pleiades, Sirius and even Alpha Centri. There are quite a few channels that bring forth various messages from these and more systems.
All of these beings bring forth messages of high wisdom, divine guidance and love and good will. Negative emotions and messages of fear and judgment are not part of these inspiring beings. This is another way of knowing if a channel is clearly gaining information from a trusted source: there isn’t any fear mongering or negative judgment being delivered. These beings come from a place of love and guidance. They are here to help us, not harm us. They bring us loving messages of high wisdom and guidance to help and guide us on our daily spiritual path.

As we move forward with more information about channeling, we will now begin to examine the Divine Guidance Team of Illuminated Engagements Centre for Whole-Being.

What is Channeling – Part 1

Messages from angels and ascended masters
(Today we are starting a new 5-6 series of blog posts centering on What is Channeling? This is our first entry into this subject.)My business coach recently was talking to a potential new customer, who didn’t seem to have clue to what business coach was; although he had heard of a life coach. She patiently attempted explain that much like what a life coach does for people’s individual lives, a business coach helps with a person’s individual business. When she brought this conversation up to me, we gradually got into a conversation about what I do: channeling intelligent energetic and inspiring beings—and she confessed to me that while she was familiar with various people who brought forth spiritual messages—she had never heard of the term ‘channeling’ before!!

Whoa! I thought! If she, who was familiar with spiritual messages and divine wisdom coming forth from humans, had never heard of this title for the role—then perhaps my audience hadn’t either!!

So what is channeling? And how is it different than being a psychic or a medium? Do you need to be psychic to be a channel? Aren’t mediums and channels the same thing? And if you don’t call them channels or channelers, what do you call people who provide us with messages from a higher source of intelligent energies? And who or what are these people bringing forth from anyways?

We’ll be discussing a few of these points over the next several blog entries, so you too can get clear on what we’re all about. While we won’t be able to go into long details, like say a book would, we can hit the highlights.

So what is the simple or broad definition of channeling? Obviously it’s a verb –and from the spiritual side of life, “channeling” is the art of bringing forth messages, guidance or inspiration from non-physical realms and dimensions, by a physical being (human) that is capable and open enough to do so. Now the ways, methods and means of this channeling could be through any number of avenues, including but not limited to writing, speaking, painting or even composing music. Many famous authors, painters and musicians have talked about their art flowing from them as if it was coming directly from the heavens. They have been truly inspired and compelled to bring forth masterpieces, often contributing their talents to more than just learned skill sets. And perhaps they did gain insightful and inspired guidance, which they unconsciously or even consciously ‘channeled’ into their work.

This then is the simple answer of what is channeling. As we continue our discussion about channeling in upcoming blogs, we will look into the more complex details of this fascinating ability!
