Retreat — A Divine Guidance Team Message

Many have just returned from a retreat — the holidays vacation time; and yet still are exhausted. Holidays can be stressful and often are. So we encourage you taking time out despite the fact you may just come off vacation time. Retreating from your daily obligations doesn’t need to take much effort. Just some down time…a favorite book, movie or bubble bath may do it. A favorite game, hobby or activity may do it. Remember to take time out for you daily!
And be sure to ask the answer for help for time off…we’re here for you!


Now here we have word with two meanings and yet they do essentially mean the same thing. 

When you retreat, you move away from something.  It is often involuntarily, such as encountering a bear in the woods.  From such an encounter, you would want to retreat from the situation –and rather quickly, we would think!

You may retreat from a confrontational or unpleasant situation, such as a fight or loud argument.  No need to get involved in something that isn’t your concern or which takes away peace in your life.  It is their story, not yours.

Speaking of your story, however, you indeed may want to take a retreat from the world—a vacation or holiday—from your everyday life.  A retreat is great to soothe the soul and clear away the cobwebs of the mind.  Whether a long or short time—the length is up to you and your own emotions, feelings and how you feel in mind, body and spirit.  Take the time you need to quench your soul into a period of refreshment and renewal.

We encourage regular periods of retreat so you may return to your labors without discontent or distress. 

So whether it is a needed vacation, or a simply a move away from an unpleasant situation, learn to retreat (verb) appropriately or take a retreat (noun) when the opportunity warrants.

Either meaning will allow you to renew, refresh and realign your balance.

Many Blessings of Light & Love,

Is the Past Really that Great?

How great is the past, really?  Are you living in the past too much?

A few years ago during one of our channeling sessions, the Divine Guidance Team referenced the book, “50 Shades of Grey” which has just been made into a movie. I saw that movie this last weekend. It’s not for children under 21 years of age, frankly. It has made quite a bit of money and in one review I read that it has brought kinky sex into the mainstream.

This movie may or may not be your cup of tea, and it won’t win any awards, but it does prove that the American audience and the movie review board that rates our movies has come a long way from the days where on TV we had to show a married couple in separate beds. Yes, Dick Van Dyke and the ‘I Love Lucy’ shows had their married spouses in separate beds in the 1960’s.   You couldn’t even show a bathroom in those days!

Often we reminisce about the ‘good ole days’ and miss what we think was a ‘quieter time and place’. But if we really look at history, you will see that the good old days might have been good for the middle-aged, middle-income to wealthy white male, but not so much for the rest of us. And that quiet time and place – did you totally miss any of your history classes???

If we live in the past, we miss out on the present. And it is the present that will determine our future. “Your future begins with your next thought,” Bryant McGill said that and it’s true. What we see, hear and do is all part of what will contribute to our tomorrows.

“Your future begins with your next thought,” –Bryant McGill

So choose what you bring into your present with care—whether it’s the news, a movie, book or TV show; whether it’s a conversation with friends, family or your boss; whether it’s whatever you have going on in your present and how you react to that which is going on.

Be mindful of your actions, your thoughts and your deeds.

In the reference from the Divine Guidance Team, the phrase they used had nothing to do with the book, but the familiar phrase ’50 shades of gray’ once meant. Now it means something else – at least for the time being.

The kids use the phrase ‘sick’ these days to express what my generation used to call ‘cool’.   Frankly something that is cool in my mind, sends out a better signal than naming something ‘sick’, which puts a negative connotation on the word. So I’ll stick with cool — okay, sometimes the past is better than the present –but we still must be aware, discerning and use care with your words, thoughts and deeds. You never know where they will lead you otherwise. Or actually they will – if you pay attention.

What words and phrases do you use regularly that could get you where you don’t want to be?
Are you living in the past or are you aware that your present affects your future?
How are you showing up on a daily basis?

Share with us; we’d love to hear from you and get your thoughts around this subject.

Love and Light Always,

Our Live Channeling Events Continue Their Success

Divine Guidance Team of Illuminated EngagementsThis last weekend we held another one of our Live Channeling Events. Questions about what happens after death, who one was in a past life and now that it’s 2013, now what?, was asked and answered by the Divine Guidance Team during the 2-3 hour event. A portion of the fee was given to the hostess’ charity choice. We believe in giving back and so 20% of gross proceeds of the Live Channeling Event go towards charity.

We also videotape these events and once edited will be making these DVDs available to the public, so the messages and answers that were brought forth can be received by all, who chose to be aligned with the message.

Currently we are holding about 1 Live Channeling Event every month; we’re taking a break in February to be able to catch up on product production – i.e. the DVDs, CDs and transcribed books that come out of these wonderful, lively and entertaining events. So far we’ve raised about $200 in monies for various charities including the American Red Cross, Multiple Scoliosis and various war veterans’ organizations, including one that serves Native Americans.

These channeling events currently are held in private homes, but we hope to spread out into public venues soon, both here in the Midwest and across the country. It’s so wonderful to meet new people with similar insights and spiritual advancement ambitions. Truly 2013 is turning out to be a wonderfully adventurous and transformational year!

Blake got the flu right after this event and had to take it easy for several days afterwards. She promises that next week’s blogs will hold some more insights, as she continues to heal.

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,
