Transcript of February 12, 2006's channeling in Talpiyot, Jerusalem
Channeled from the Guides of Gregory Goltsov
This is a transcript of the evening. Some additions have been made in brackets especially for you, the reader, and names have been omitted for privacy issues. Enjoy the journey of reading! If you set aside the time to truly read the material, rather than simply skimming over it, you will receive a powerful jolt of the intensity that occured, and it will be as if you were there. Enjoy!
Greg: Thank you all for coming. I hope this evening will be useful and fruitful for all of you.
[Audience laugher, as this evening is taking place on Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for Trees, sort of a Jewish Arbor day. As is the custom, fruits were out and arranged for eating and blessing. So the evening had already begun as a “fruitful” one.]
Greg: So my sense for this evening is that the guides will talk for a while and then they’ll put it out for questions. They’ve said that this evening will be a lot more questions and be less scripted by them than other channelings, that this is a very personal period of time that we’re going through, and so that’s the kind of session we’re going to have, to follow that.
So they’re saying:
Guides: We honor you, and we thank you for coming to this special evening. We honor you. We know what it means to live a human life. We know what it means to get your butts here. We know what it is to live. We know what it is to experience difficulty. We know what it is to so much as open your door and walk out of it with a plan and to follow through with that plan.
We know what it is to walk around with thoughts and difficulties and emotions swirling around in your head and your system. We know. And we are here with you. And we are here with you to support you. To bring to you guidance, help, and assistance. To not live your lives for you, to not give you answers, but to give you guidance and assistance so that you can find that which you need to follow in order to help yourself live the life you’ve been dreaming of for a long time.
We know. And as you have come here with your questions, and we will be here to answer them. Keep this in mind, that our answers are not here to be instant divine answers that will instantly change everything in your life and make it all better. If that were possible so easily and so instantly someone would have figured it out by now. What people do figure out, after a long journey, is that it is instant, but it often and usually takes a long journey to figure that out.
And this is not by accident, for it is only after a long journey that you can appreciate the homeland that you’ve come to. When you are in your homeland, when you are in your comfortable space, when you are in the heavens, when you are with a loved one, when things are as they should be, all is grand, and this is as it should be. But you leave that space, often unwillingly, or so you think within the consciousness of this lifetime. When you leave that space, it is but to experience another learning experience.
And we are here to talk about overcoming difficulty. But that is a misnomer. That title was to get you here. We will talk about working with difficulty so that it no longer has the power over you. And some may call that overcoming difficulty, but not in the sense that many heroes are portrayed as – that they are suffering but they are walking and they’re going through and they’re suffering but they’re going and they’re heroes.
No. Not that kind of overcoming. The kind of overcoming that comes with experience and the realization that a difficult time does not have to equate to suffering. That difficult times do not have to equate to walking through a dark abyss alone. That difficult times do not have to mean the end of times. Merely that difficult times are yet another experience of the human experience and they are what they are and there are tools to help you through them. Overcoming in that sense. But that title was too long.
And yes, to learn to laugh. And yes, to learn to compartmentalize. Not in the sense of ignoring parts of your life, but in the sense that when you’re going through hard times, they’re hard times and they’re there, but that doesn’t mean that’s the only thing in your life and you’re not allowed to laugh anymore.
Too many people in this country especially, and others, have forgotten this. Too many drivers on the road have forgotten this. Too many people think that a difficult time or a difficult emotion or a difficult breakup or a difficult financial period, or a difficult betrayal or a difficult anything, means you are not allowed to be happy. Or that if you are happy you are betraying yourself and that emotion.
Or that if you think about anything but that you are ignoring that. Or that if you are happy during hard times you are not being true to yourself. Or that if you smile during a difficult period, you are floating in the air and not really knowing what’s going on. That may be a possibility but, we tell you, the masters, the masters, the greatest masters who have ever walked this Earth, have also gone through some of the most difficult experiences ever experienced on this Earth. Many of those have walked these grounds and this land.
Masters know that difficult times mean not that everything is lost and that it is time to give up on yourself, but that it is time – no, the exact opposite – that difficult times mean, it is time to switch into high gear, and use any tool you have at your disposal to find that deep connection to yourself and to the Heavens, and to higher powers. To ask for divine help with your difficulty, with answers to your difficulty, and with assistance to help your body and your energetic system be able to sustain itself even through these difficult times.
This is when miracles happen. And this is why difficult times are an intended experience of life on Earth, from a higher perspective. Because difficult times catapult people to look at the depths of themselves and their lives and their problems, and find answers. Those problems help to catapult people into their place in their lives, and catapult people out of their often rigid belief systems that they hold onto for dear life no matter how damaging they are to them.
It is not because you are bad that you experience difficulty. It is not because you are wrong that you experience difficulty. It is not because you are doing anything wrong that you experience difficulty. It is not because you need anything or anyone that you experience difficulty.
That you experience difficulty, is like a sign on the road: Right Turn Ahead. Get Ready. If you see the sign and understand the sign and understand it’s time to turn, even though you’ve been going straight for so long and it’s worked for long, if you go straight things might not be so good. It’s telling you, “Turn”.
Sometimes those signs come in increasingly, what you would call difficult signs, what we would call more obvious signs, that are intended step by step to give you reasons to turn right. If you don’t turn right, you’re going to hit the guard-rail, and by golly you’re going to turn right.
It is not because you are doing anything wrong. If you don’t read the sign, or can’t read the sign, it is because you can’t read the sign, and life is going to send you circumstances that are going to help you to read further signs. That’s it. Done. Right there, that’s the essence of this evening. Did you hear that, do you want to repeat that? Does someone else want to repeat that? Who wants to repeat that?
This is the essence of everything we have to say this evening. Who wants to repeat that?
[Please note that this event being in Jerusalem, English is not everybody’s first language. But it seems important to give their words as stated, as there is power in their words, even if they are not in perfect grammar.]
Audience Participant: We go straight, and we have to read the sign that we are to turn right, and go another direction. And life offers you sign, and also getting a higher level of big.
Guides: Who else wants to repeat that? We want you to put this in your own words. We want you to – desperately, we want you, we ask you, we tell you, bring this concept into your field of thought.
Audience Participant: If you don’t manage to read the signs, you get this difficulty that is a more obvious opportunity to get to the right turn.
Audience Participant: If you don’t read the signs, you get more and more lessons until you are aware of the signs.
Audience Participant: The choices are, that you have that barricade that will go all the way down to the abyss, or you have the sign. You don’t see the sign, the barricade is there to protect you too. It might hurt more, but it’s there. It’s only love, and we’ll be taken care of.
Audience Participant: How do you know if you’re supposed to turn left or right? Are they saying there’s only one direction to turn?
Guides: There are many directions to turn –
Audience Participant: Yeah it’s just so frustrating. That there are signs, that’s clear. But where are the signs, on the right side or the left side?
Audience Participant: And there’s some people who have a problem because they’re blind and can’t read Braille.
Guides: Two questions, and they’re good questions, and we want to answer them both. How do you know if you should turn left or right?
How do you know if the sign points left or right? This is an excellent question, and an obvious question, and often it doesn’t matter. Often, there are a series of choices that will lead you down excellent paths. Sometimes there is one or two. Sometimes we go through a difficult time, just because that’s where we are.
The signs are not about forcing you to do something you may not want, although sometimes it is. The signs are about helping you to get to a deeper point in your life so that you can better live life on Earth given your current circumstances, body, and energetic system.
The question of which way to go, depends on which way you want to go. That is to say, if you want more money in your life, if you want more abundance in your life, there are certain roads that will bring you more money than other roads. Then there is another road that will bring you more so to a different goal. And there are roads where you are simply living your life and it’s time to turn. Read the signs. Follow your life. And see what feels right. It is very rare that a particular direction is wrong. It’s not about wrong, it’s about, where do you want to go, and which is the path that will take you there?
You might say, “Which is the easiest path,” but define easiest. One may give you more money but less emotional fulfillment. One may give you more emotional fulfillment, but less abundance. One may give you emotional turmoil but a nice house. Which one do you want? And how do you want to balance it? Of course you want it all. And then what is a good road to go down that will give you a good balance of them all?
And there will come a time, that in order to continue going down that road of a good balance of them all, may need to turn right, or left, or up, or down. Or stop and talk to someone on the side of the road for a while. Simply read the signs. And learn to follow the waves of life so that you are with the waves and in the waves, rather than trying to crash through them. Some people enjoy the experience of crashing through them. If you desire to do so, go for it, but then understand that you are going to be crashing through the waves and it is not often that it is nearly as glamorous as is portrayed on television.
For difficulty does not mean, you’re strong and you’re tough and you’re persevering and you can do it and you’re wonderful. That is often how it is portrayed and that is sometimes how it is experienced, but that is not true difficulty. True difficulty is when all your defenses are broken down and you don’t know what to do with yourself, and you don’t even have that perseverance with you anymore. That is the difficulty we speak of.
Difficulty where you’re walking through the rain and having some fun with it may not be easy, but it is fun and so it is not truly difficulty. True difficulty is when you hit the wall, or you’re heading towards the wall, and you don’t know what the heck to do. And so, read the signs.
At any stage during or before or after the difficulty, you know your answers. Go inside for guidance. Go outside for guidance. Go to the divine light for guidance. Go to your internal divine light for guidance. Feel your internal divine spark connecting with the divine that feels as if it were external to you and connected to you. Ask the people around you for guidance. And see how all of that feels. And bring it together.
For people around you are also divine. They speak from their perspective, and through their own filter and life experience, and we are not telling you to follow everything everyone says. We are telling you, interact with others and ask you friends for help. And never, never, never, think that you are alone. There are some who may understand better than others. But there are those who are with you on your journey, who you may not share as much with as you could, with whom you may not nurture a relationship as much as you could.
Use these experiences and difficult times as a catalyst to bring goodness into your life. As a catalyst to look inside and find resources to help you, and eventually realize those resources were there all along, and now because of what you’re going through, you will have access to those monitoring systems in a way that you wouldn’t have before this experience. Use these experiences as guideposts, as catapults, to throw you out of something you may be stuck in, and as catalysts for changes in your life and additions in your life. And they have always been there and you may not have been aware of, or known how to access them.
Does this answer your question?
Audience Participant: Yes, very much.
Guides: What if you’re blind and don’t read Braille?
Audience Participant who’d asked that question: It was a joke, that all.
Guides: But it is a good joke.
Audience Participant: It is a good joke with a question.
Guides: Understand this. Though it may not always feel like it, nothing, nothing, nothing, is ever thrown at you that you cannot handle. Nothing is ever thrown at you that you cannot handle. Nothing, is ever thrown at you, that you cannot handle. Though it may cause, at worse, ultimate breakdown, and it may cause complete questioning of everything in life, that it may cause complete doubt in oneself or in God or in everything that exists, that it may bring about suicidal thoughts, that it may bring about isolation from other people, that it may bring about a rejection from religion or God or any sort of spirituality, that it may cause any number of enormous difficulties, nothing is ever thrown at you that you cannot handle.
And so, the blind one who cannot read Braille who is traveling across the road or through the road, would likely have a kind stranger say, “Hey! I like your shirt, where did you get it? Let’s walk together around this corner.” Or they will have other senses that will guide them, or they will have luck that brings them to a good place. Or they will crash into the wall on their journey toward being a master, and learn that the wall is merely a wall. And that this blind person who cannot read Braille, can still pick himself up, and keep walking.
That is the journey of life. And we tell you, most of you, most days, and most time periods in your life and most interactions in your life, you are blind and cannot read Braille. And yet here you are anyway. And yet here you are anyway. And yet, here you are anyway, coming to an evening [or reading this transcript] that maybe will help you along your path to life, doing things in your life that maybe feel right and you don’t know why, meeting people in your life, that you later find out are complete gifts.
If you are blind and cannot read Braille, do you then realize, will you then realize, would you then realize, that it’s not about you? That you are not alone? That it is not only respected but expected that you ask for help in your life? That you realize your connection with the divine, and learn that whether you ask for help or not, whether you believe in life or not, somehow, things get thrown at you that help your life, that guide your life, that may be difficult, but in one way or another, will bring you to the place where your life ought be.
That you are blind and cannot read Braille, does not mean you have no resources. That you are blind and cannot read Braille and hit a wall, does not mean you are doing anything wrong. It simply means you are blind and cannot read Braille, and did not see the wall coming, and you hit the wall, and now, you pick yourself up again.
Do not read more meaning into your life experiences than they have. That you experience difficulty does not mean there is everything wrong with you.
At the same time, please, please, please, do read more into other parts of your life than you currently do.
When you see a stranger who says hello and compliments your shirt, and a boulder falls five meters in front of you where you would have been, but, oh, it’s just a coincidence. But if you were hit by that boulder you’d scream at God why are you being punished, but when a person on the side of the road compliments your shirt, you think it doesn’t mean anything. Read more into parts of your life that need more reading into. Thank the people in your life. Thank the infinite wisdom that sometimes comes out of people when you least expect it. Thank the person who honks at you on the road. Thank the people in your life. Thank the experiences in your life. Thank the internet when you randomly come across a page that’s so meaningful for you.
If you dare scream out to God as to why all these difficulties are in your life, then we ask, at the very least, at the very least, also, also, also thank the blessings. Go ahead and do with your life what you wish, and act as you wish, and blame who you wish but, remember, a.) that you are not alone, b.) that nothing is thrown at you that you cannot handle though you may think it is, and c.) there are blessings in your life that you may or may not be aware of. A, B, and C, overcoming difficulty.
Audience Participant: Do we get to the purpose, or is it the road to the purpose that is real?
Do you ever get to your purpose? Yes. Is the road to the purpose meaningful? Yes. Is the road to your purpose the purpose in and of itself? Yes. Will you get to the place that you see as your purpose and you are wanting to go? Yes it is possible. Once you get there, will you feel as if your work is done, or will there come a different purpose?
You can have any and every purpose that you wish in your life. Greg’s purpose for most of his lifetime was to find a way to personally interact with people on a deep level that will help people with their lives. Then it was to graduate college so that he could get a job that would support these endeavors. Then it was to enlist in energy healing school and learn these skills. Then it was to nurture these skills. Then it was to pay off the debts from going to school. Then it was to drop his entire life and move to Israel and see what happens. Then it was to feel settled in this country. Then it was to open up shop in this country. Then it was, which was a big surprise to him, to start channeling publicly in this country. What will it be next year? What has been the journey of your life? What have you gotten at each stage of your life that has supported that stage of your life to help you get to the next?
Where are you going in life? And if you do not know, that is ok. But if you’re not getting what you want, then ask for what you want. And be open to what comes. For getting what you want may not be the path you think it is. Getting what you want may be a path were rocks are falling on you, and you are blind and cannot read Braille. But the end will be what you want.
The question to ask, is “Where are you going?” And ask for it. And pray for it. And even as that path changes and even as the goal changes, and it will – sometimes you have a goal, and you go four steps into it, and suddenly you have a different goal, but you wouldn’t have thought of that goal had you not taken four steps into the first.
Sometimes we – and Greg gets very annoyed at us for this – sometimes we, what you would call, what people would call, misguide people. We say, go do this. And it is not for them to do that, but taking four steps toward doing that will get them to a place where they can do something else which is what they really want to do.
Follow your life path. See what feels right. Look along the branches, and see what’s out there. And we tell you, go inward, and spend time finding the depths of yourself and exploring and seeing what’s there. See what’s there. And make that an aspect of your life. And during other aspects of your life, remember to laugh. Remember to call your friends. Remember to spend good times, even though the overriding time may be a difficult one, remember to find ways to bring joy into your life. Remember to say, okay I’m going through a hard time, okay I’m overwhelmed, okay right now, let’s just leave that for now, put it aside, or leave it right in front, but at the same time, bring in something else that will also nurture other aspects of yourself.
Allow your path to be what it is, which is a difficult one, and while on that difficult path, use every resource available to you. And when you cry, use that as a tool to be what it is. Largely, to simply expend the sadness that you’ve held for so long. And also as a tool to go deeper into yourself. And sit in that space for a while.
And we know. We know, we know. We know, difficult as it is, that is a tool for you, that helps you to feel parts of you that you are not always aware of in your day to day life. The depths of you that you have hidden, to protect them. The parts of you that even can be hidden in day to day life, but the parts of you that want to be with you in your personal private time.
So we tell you, shed your tears. Allow the sadness that you hold to be expended. It is not because there is so much. It is because you have accumulated it over a lifetime, and lifetimes, that you were not allowed to express. And so you are holding it. And so we tell you, let go. Let it go. It doesn’t have to be in front of anybody. Nobody has to know, except for these fine people who will surely be very respectful of everyone’s personal difficult times.
Allow yourself to shed your tears and expend that which you hold deep within you. And then your depths, which are crying out to be there, to be a part of your everyday life – eventually – to be expressed rather than that which being expressed being the holding pattern, the shield, and the depths of you not really having a chance to interact with the close people around you.
The sadness for you is one of your most powerful tools to access your depths. And to be able to learn to have meaningful relationships and feel closeness with people, that you haven’t in a long time.
How does that feel for you?
Audience Participant: Lonely.
Guides: Who else here has cried alone, wondering if anyone cares?
[Nearly everyone raises their hand]
Another Audience Participant: Why don’t you ask who hasn’t.
Guides: Who still does?
[Again nearly everyone raises their hand, but a bit fewer than before]
Guides: This for you is the catapult. It’s trying to catapult you to a place to learn to be close to other people, and feel a part of you that is able to be close to other people. The part of you that isn’t the shield.
[Hands go up of those wanting to ask their questions]
Greg: Let’s sit with that for a moment. Let’s let this sit. We’ve all done this. We’re all human, we all wonder if anyone cares. We all wonder who we are and where we’re going. We all wonder, if we disappear, would anyone notice? We’ve all been alone under a blanket.
It’s a part of the human experience. A difficult one. But it is what it is. And I think it’s one of those shared experiences that we all share not knowing that we all share it. And I think it’s important to connect in this way, and realize that we do all go through it, that we do all feel it. And often we are all confused in our lifetime, and wonder why no amount of help or guidance brings us anywhere we want to be.
When I’ve expended all my resources, and don’t know where else to go or where else to turn and everything’s falling apart, I often come to the conclusion that I really need to learn to go deeper within myself. That being able to feel my own depths, my own divine spark, my own connection, my own gifts that I can bring to the world, is where I end up. And then calling up a friend and saying hi, is a nice thing. And for me, I know – a lot of people will talk about all these things going on and it’s certainly very recommended by a lot of people – for me personally, I just, I don’t. I just don’t. I just call up a friend, and I don’t want or feel I need, or maybe I need, but what I feel like I want, is not to do a therapy session, although that is what it is and it’s often helpful, but in the sense of calling up a friend, I feel like what I need is not that, but just to interact with that friend, and let it be what it is, just to interact with that friend.
That’s what it is for me, a lot of people will share with friends what’s going on and how they’re feeling, and I’ve personally, I’ve rarely been one to do that. I just want to reach out for the connection. And that’s what’s special for me
Audience Participant: I disagree with this, because when I look at other people now [in this room], when we are allowing ourselves to experience this state of sadness, naturally it makes us disconnected. Like when you’re happy, you immediately search out and hold hands, and look at everybody [here] who has something [emotional] around them. So it’s hard for me to lie to myself and say I’m not feeling lonely. Because I see everybody doesn’t want to hear that. So I don’t know how to share. I just remember that you say that we have to thank those experiences. I say thank you but, my next question was to share with – and that’s what we do now – and how can we share with each other in order that it won’t be so lonely?
Greg: I think we are right now.
Guides: How does loneliness disappear? By feeding it. It is what it is. It is a part of you that is calling out for attention. When you give it attention, it will be fed. What kind of attention does loneliness call for? Generally, interaction with other people. Give yourself interaction with other people. Give it to yourself. Allow yourself the treat of interaction with other people. Make a regularly scheduled coffee date with a friend, so that the both of you know and can look forward to it. Go to public places, even without anyone. Have a coffee and bring a book. Or just sit and watch people.
Loneliness is about interactions with other people, but it is also about the human need to be a part of a group. And even being in a crowd helps that. And smiling at the wait staff or the woman behind the counter also gives that. And as you become a regular somewhere, or anywhere, you will get to know people and you can smile and say hi. And there is an interaction. And that it is not from the depths of your soul does not mean it is empty. Because smiling to someone can be from the depths of your soul, even if the actual conversation is very light. You see, accessing the depths of your soul doesn’t have to mean you’re crying about your childhood. It can, but it doesn’t have to mean that. A smile at a stranger coming from the depths of your soul can be infinitely more meaningful than anything that person has experienced that day.
Audience Participant: Repeat that again please.
Guides: A smile to a stranger that comes from the depths of your soul can be infinitely more meaningful to that person than anything else they’ve experienced that day.
Because everyone smiles and says hi. Some people smile and say hi. Many people smile and say hi. For some it is meaningless, and for some, it is,
[Greg goes and kneels in front of this audience participant, put his hand on her shoulder, looks into her eyes, and says,]
“Hi.” [Said very softly and deeply]. “Thank you for being in my life.” When you look someone in the eye, when you feel your divine emanating from you, it is hallowed for both people. And when you also give deep interactions to other people, you will feel your own deep interactions, and the loneliness will be fed. Not as an instant answer. It is a part of your journey. And that is what it is. It is a part of your journey.
“Listen! Listen I want interactions with other people, give them to me.” That’s your loneliness calling. That it is painful, is because it becomes painful when it is ignored, or not given all that it needs. When you’re traveling along the road, and you see, “Right Turn Ahead” – when the loneliness calls and says, “Loneliness, need some interaction.” – if you ignore that sign that says, “Right Turn,” that wall in front of you is going to get bigger and bigger and bigger, and if you feed your loneliness, if you give yourself the right turn, you’ll simply go along the path. If you turn most of the way, you’ll hit the wall a little bit, and the loneliness will keep calling and say, “A little more, a little more.” If you turn some, it’ll be even stronger; “More, more more.” If you do just a little, the wall’s going to be pretty hard, and it’s going to hurt, and it’ll say, “More! Turn!” And if you don’t turn at all and say “eh, it doesn’t matter anyway,” eventually the wall hits, and you scream, “ou! Where did that come from!?” But you’d been feeling the sign, you just didn’t think it was important.
And the wall is telling you, “It’s important. Listen. Listen. You are a divine gift. You are a creation of God. And when you think something, it is because it is important.” And when you feel something, it is because God is saying, “I need this!” That is how important you are.
That is how important you are. You are the sign. The sign is you. You are saying both, and you are God. And you are saying, “I need deeper interactions with people.” You are telling yourself. Parts of you are telling other parts of you. The parts of you that are needing are telling the parts of you that make the actions. You are the sign. You are the wall. And are you ready for the third one?
You are the road.
Audience Participant: So why do we go ahead and go off the road?
Guides: That only happens when you don’t listen to your own signs. When you learn to, and this is not a judgment, it is not that you don’t do it, when you learn to read the signs and be aware of the signs, and know how important the signs are, the road is yours to create any way you desire. The cafe down the street from you, any cafe down the street from you, can be a part of your journey. Will you put it on your road? Will you put it on your road?
Feel the loneliness. Feel the sign. Go up to the sign – you’re on the road – go up to the sign, and this is why these things often, or usually feel separate, so that we can analyze them in ways that we wouldn’t be able to if it were one big ball of us.
Go up to the sign. Say, “What do you look like? What else is here? What am I not seeing? Ah! Is the answer in here somewhere too? ‘Turn Right,’ how do I turn right? Let me think about that for a minute. I’m going to stop here, in front of the sign, and think about it. What if the sign that gives the directions also gives the directions of how to follow the directions?” But that sign is a smaller sign below the bigger sign, and you have to look at the bigger sign before seeing the smaller one. That is to say, when it says, “Turn Right,” you have to acknowledge that it says turn right. Decide that you’re going to turn right or at least think about turning right, and then look at the smaller sign below it, and figure out how.
When the loneliness comes, it’s not going to go away until it’s acknowledged. And once it’s acknowledged, the next thing that happens is to figure out what to do after that.
How does that feel for you?
Audience Participant: I feel embarrassed like you’re talking to me and maybe other people are feeling neglected or something.
Guides: Who thinks that [this person] is important enough to use 10 minutes of this evening?
Audience Participant: But not everyone feels so lonely.
Another Audience Participant: But we learn from it.
Audience Participant: When asked how I feel about it, to tell you the – I’m tired of doing something about it all the time. Sometimes I want to take the risk of just be, and say what life can bring me, because like the guide said, if I don’t read the sign well and look what it says in small letters, I have to do something about it so, I’m tired now, that’s all. I wish to be able to be carried and somebody else will do something. That’s sharing.
Another Audience Participant: Well, we are together.
Guides: We will say one final thing. Which is listen to the signs. And we hear you, you’ve said you’re tired. And we say, listen to the signs. And you say you’re tired. And we say listen to the signs. And we say, “you’re tired” is a sign.
Let yourself be who you are. And let who you are, be. And stop thinking that parts of you are less important than others. And stop thinking that if you have work to do it means you’re not allowed to rest. That’s a part of putting aspects of your life into different aspects of your life.
With this we will thank you. And know. Know that we are here for you, either through Greg if you wish to call, but more personally, we are here for you.
Greg: These are your Guides talking now –
Audience Participant’s Guides: We are here for you. Anytime that you call though you may not hear us as clearly as you are right now, we are here for you. Ask for support, and see what happens.
Greg: They’re saying – I thought for a second it was for me, but it’s for everyone, they’re saying:
Guides: Go deeper. Go deeper. Go deeper. Go within yourselves. And it is from this perspective that we will answer and address your questions. Go deeper. When you sit in the three dimensional reality that you live in, confusing times are confusing. When you go deeper, confusing times are an aspect of the divine creation that we call a lifetime. And from this perspective, it is easier and more effective to address your difficulties from this place.
And so we ask of you, that when you address your difficulties, if you can, when you can, move into this space. Move into a space like this. Even think about this room and put yourself in this room in your mind. Feel the depths of yourself surrounded by good people in a good environment, on a holy spot. And from this place, ask for guidance, and look for guidance to your difficulties.
When you look for guidance to your difficulties from the third dimensional reality, things can seem overwhelming and unsolvable. But when you go to a deeper place and access your depths, when you feel your divine spark, what is not possible by God? What is not possible by God? Align yourself with divine intention, and divine goodwill, and the divine plan. And from this place, ask for help with your difficulties. And see what happens.
Audience Participant: I don’t have a specific question, I’ll just ask, what does spirit want me to know?
Guides: We want you to know, that you are a divine and beautiful being. We want you to know, that your life is not a waste, that your days are not a waste of time. That your day to day interactions with what you may call the mundane may be the most divine experience that the people around you are able to experience because of what you bring to them. That when you bring yourself and all your skills, and all the kindness of your heart to your life, and to the people in your life and to the day to day interactions in your life, that is meaningful, and deep, and often more deep than any interaction those people have had with anyone during that day, and often during many days and often during weeks.
We want you to know, that it is less about what you do, and more about how you do it, and how you approach it. We want you to know, that your beauty within shines through, and when you allow it to shine through, that you are consciously aware of what you are doing, you are bringing peace to the hearts of people.
It is not your job that is your job. It is what you do in any circumstance that is your job. You can walk anywhere, and do your job. That you are doing the job that you are doing now, is because it is a balance for you for all the various needs that you need. And it is a good leaping point to continuing on your journey and get to the next step. It is not meaningless, unless it is.
The meaning that anything has is the meaning that you bring to it. This circle of people may seem meaningful, and yet, if Greg approached from, “Alright, what do you want to know? Okay, maybe, who knows… okay, do you have any money for me, I need to pay my rent…”
…it would be less meaningful. Your day to day life interactions are what they are because you bring so much peace into them. Because you bring so much kindness into them. Because you are aware of how important it is to bring those things into day to day interactions.
And this is what it is largely because Greg knows what it means to prepare to make a meaningful evening. And there is everything in between. There are some people who are nice and polite and follow through the motions because they are nice and polite, and yet, they don’t think it matters. You do. And that is why the people in your life are so blessed that you are in it. There are some people who are nice and polite and walk away, and think about how much they hate that person. And yet you realize how important it is to truly mean what you say and mean what you do. You understand that thoughts matter.
And you live life from that place. People around you are blessed. And that is your gift. And that is what we want you to know, is how meaningful that is, not only for you, but for everyone around you. They know, they know, they know, just as everyone in this room raised their hand when asked if they feel alone, but would likely not admit it in another setting, all those people need what you have to give to them. And so we tell you, never forget the meaning that your life has. And never forget how important it is to continue bringing new meaning into your own life. And how important it is that you continually live life from a place of bringing meaning into your life. And we acknowledge your work. And we tell you, you have given gifts to every single person you have ever spoken with.
That is what we want you to take away, and to remember, and to feel in the depths of your soul – how meaningful your work is, no matter what it may look like in three dimensions.
Audience Participant: I’m thinking about three different subjects. And I don’t know what to do. I will say the three, and name them, and see what they choose to respond. One is a physical predicament that I’m in. Would you like me to get more detailed?
Guides: You can say anything you want to say. But we will tell you, the better you are able to articulate your question, the better we will be able to answer it. Not because we do not know your question, but because the better that you, or the more clearly that you ask for what you need, the more clearly you get what you need.
Greg often asks, before making a decision, “Is this in the highest good?” And we may say “yes,” and then he does it, and then it falls apart, and he throws up his arms and says, “What happened?” And we answer, “This learning experience is in the highest good. You didn’t ask if this experience would be pleasant.”
And so, ask the question that you want answered. And it is from this point, to live your life, if you have a goal, make that goal clear to the heavens, to the universe, and within yourself. And speaking your question is an aspect of that.
Audience Participant: I see these physical difficulties as a sign. And I would like to – how to work with this.
Another question is, I’m planning a trip abroad. And I would like to know how I can be in the best service during this trip.
The third subject is, I have a very fresh, new relationship. I’m really trying. It was unexpected. And it’s – I’m a little bit confused about it. The other side is so clear that it’s just amazing. So I don’t know what to do with it.
Guides: Your journey is largely about feeding yourself, and figuring out how to feed yourself, and figuring out, what are the needs of this body that you have chosen for this lifetime. What you have chosen, is to walk along the road, and look around, and wonder what is a sign and what isn’t, and wonder what is important and what isn’t. And wonder how to give your body and yourself the needs that you need amongst this confusatory signage.
And so this is your first question, which leads into the other two. How to take care of your body. How to take care of your needs. When your body calls out, what is the best way to handle it? And so we tell you. You have not chosen the easiest delivery vehicle for your soul in this lifetime. That is to say, your body. You have chosen a delivery vehicle which needs a lot of needs but doesn’t know how to fill those needs. And so, it is largely your task in this lifetime for your soul to be able to learn to clearly read signs even in the midst of a fog. To learn what signs are, and to learn how to get your needs met, even in the midst of a fog, and even in the midst of a delivery vehicle that is difficult to read.
And so, acknowledge, first of all. Number one, acknowledge who you are, and the body and lifetime that you’ve chosen. Acknowledge what it is. Thank it for being with you, and for journeying with you, and you journeying with it, and you learning to be together with it in this lifetime. Number one, acknowledge.
Number two, and this we said earlier, when you acknowledge the sign, and look at it close-up, from that point you will see the next step. And so number one acknowledge. And from there, learn what your needs are, and learn how to fill your needs. And when your body feels pain, it may be time to rest, rather than push forward through it. There may be times to feel pain, and keep going. And there may be other times to feel pain, and say, “Oh, okay,” and to slow down and stop and give your body a break. You don’t have to be pushing it all the time. You are allowed to rest. You are allowed to stop. You are allowed to acknowledge who you are, and let that be it, without any pushing toward any goal. Or rather, that is the goal.
Acknowledge who you are. Acknowledge who you are. And find ways to be who you are, even while working with this delivery vehicle of yours that you have chosen for this lifetime.
That means reading the signs. And when the body says rest, dear one, rest. Dear one, rest. Rest, you are allowed. You are good enough. You are not required to push, you are good enough. You do not need to be better, you are good enough. Not in the sense of good enough but not perfect, you are perfect, at that means no matter what you may think you need to add to your life, you are perfect as you are, even as you can bring more in. You are good enough.
You are perfect and beautiful and wonderful and your learning path, as we have said, is about reading the signs. Give your body rest. It might do you well to explore different kinds of foods and see how they feel within you. You see, it is not about the answers, it is about figuring out what works. And this is your journey along the path toward reading the signs of your body, is reading signs of your body, and figuring out, and exploring what they are and what they mean, and what works and what doesn’t, and what you need at various times in your life and giving yourself that.
Your journey is the journey. Figuring out what works for you is the learning path that you’ve chosen. For you, we tell you with honor and respect, it is not about finding a way that is perfect and then living there. It is about a continual process of working with your body and learning to be in harmony and balance with it, even as it asks a lot of you.
Feed yourself. And that means taking time daily to work with the various needs of your body, and seeing what works and what doesn’t, and seeing how different things feel, and seeing how one thing feels as opposed to another. Open up your kinesthetic senses. That is to say, your senses of feeling of how something feels within you. In addition to the gifts you already have, to learn how your body, and therefore your soul reacts to different kinds of stimulus and input, and see what kind you would prefer in what kind of doses, and seeing which kind you want to seek out at certain times, and which kind you want to avoid at certain times, and which kind you will tolerate for a while but not too long.
Your journey, your physical journey that is, your second question, your journey is largely about exactly this. About experiencing other stimulus and circumstances, and enjoying them. And learning what you like and what you don’t. And so go, and have fun, and explore. And be with yourself. And see how it feels to be in a different environment. To be nearly a different person. To be in a different land. To be anything you want to be. To reinvent yourself on different days and explore different possibilities. And to learn that pushing your way through life isn’t the only way to find your needs and to get them met.
Even as you journey into the unknown, amazing things will happen. And amazing people will pop into your life. And there will be times that will challenge you. But the earlier example of, is the question, “Is this in your highest good?” or is the question, “Will this be easy?”
This is not code for “It will be extraordinarily difficult. No. Yes, it is in your highest good. Parts of it will be difficult, as are parts of anything. But it is – and this is why you’ve been thinking about it for so long – it is worthwhile in your journey in life?
What do you do with your relationship that came unexpectedly? What would you like to do with it?
Audience Participant: I like it to be more meaningful, and more deep and interesting than I have previously. I like it to be more.
Guides: What do you need from him in order to make that happen?
Audience Participant: From him? I think it’s like, I don’t know what I need from him. I don’t know what the answer is. Because you see, I think I should accept him as he is. Need from him? I think it’s something that I do more with myself to work on it.
Guides: Aha! And so, what do you need from yourself to allow yourself to help create this relationship in a way that is more deep and meaningful than your previous ones?
Audience Participant: I thought about it today, about accepting him. That’s Gods will. I have to accept him. And get over it, and trust him, trust myself. And enjoy it enough to be aware along the way.
Guides: Sometimes difficulty comes into your life, because it is God’s will and it is something to accept and move on with. Sometimes difficulty comes into your life because it is a part of your life to help be a catalyst for change or more accurately in this example, to be a catalyst to help you feel your depths and bring yourself to a deeper level.
And so, we ask you to go with our first answer, our answer to your first question, and explore – this is also the answer to the second question – explore. That he is who he is, and you accept that, is a blessed response. That you accept him for who he is, and think that that is never something that will grow and evolve and change, either personally within him, or together, as the both of you are in relationship, is not accurate.
Audience Participant: I didn’t understand the end.
Guides: That is to say, we honor you, for honoring him, and accepting him for who he is. In addition to that, if you believe that who he is will never change or grow and evolve, as he is on his own journey, or as the both of you are on the both of your journeys together, that is an inaccurate thought. It is inaccurate to believe that a person does not change as you are in relationship with him, or as he journeys through life.
It is honorable to accept people as who they are. But it is inaccurate to believe that after accepting them, they will never change. Accept him, while at the same time understanding that he is on his own personal growth journey, as are you, and everyone, and that as the two of you come together in relationship, your personal growth journeys intertwine. And you both grow and change. And you both learn about each other. And as you accept him for who he is, gently make your needs met. Have your needs met by making your needs known.
Audience Participant: Can you say that again?
Guides: Have your needs met, by making your needs known. How will he know what you need if he doesn’t know? He will not know unless you tell him. That is also a part of your exploration journey. How do I get my needs met? There are personal ways that we have covered, and now this is the “in relationship” way. First, acknowledge what it is, and then see what’s there. A man who cares about you wants to do things for you. And he wants to figure out a way where his needs are met, while at the same time, he’s helping to meet yours. That is relationship, and when the two of you find a balance between each getting your own needs met, and each meeting the other’s needs, you will have a beautiful relationship.
And your process and journey is learning how to acknowledge what’s going on, respect what’s going on, and at the same time, figure out a way that that can move to something that can work. That is the journey with your body, with your soul’s desires, and in a relationship with another, and those were your three questions. My needs of my body, the journey, the needs of my soul, and the needs of the relationship. Your journey is about explorations of needs and learning how to get them met. And you are doing rather well so far. You’ve gotten this far, and you’ve done it, and you’re here.
Baruchim Haba’im [A greeting in Hebrew that literally means, “Blessed are those who have come”]. You have come. And that is the journey in and of itself – getting to a place where these things can be accessed and addressed. We honor you, and we respect you for who you are, even as we know you are on a continual growth process.
[After a break with fun conversation and laughing]
Greg: [Trying to start channeling again, but instead laughing] I’m trying to get serious and I can’t stop laughing.
Audience Participant: Is it serious?
Greg: I think, people often think that you have to be serious to do anything meaningful or for something to matter, and I think we’re proving that there are other possibilities additional to that. There are many ways to do a lot of things. And as laughter is a part of us, it’s a part of all that we do, including the meaningful things.
Audience Participant: I’ve had a serious clash with an important old friend of mine. And for me it was good that I stood up for myself. At first it felt good. But then this doesn’t feel very good at all. And then this let into, really the impression about where I’m going here, and what am I doing here, and I’ve had these very strange physical feelings around my head. And I’m asking for help, I’m asking God for help, I’m asking guides for help, and I get so many different answers that I get really crazy from it.
Guides: What are you asking?
Audience Participant: I’m asking my friends, I’m asking my guides.
Guides: What are you asking, what is the question?
Audience Participant: Really, what’s happening with my head and is it something dangerous, is it something I have to go for healing, is it my own aggression around my head, what is it?
Guides: It is difficulty rearing its ugly head. And often, this is the way that things work, that difficulty in one aspect of your life, brings up other difficulties in other aspects of your life, and often the difficulties in the major parts of your life. In that, something may happen, and it triggers all of these “What am I doing with my life” questions. It’s not because the “What am I doing with my life” questions weren’t there before. It’s because there was a trigger, a catalyst that brought them out. They were already there. You may not have seen them, or noticed them, or perhaps they were there and they were not being given the attention that they where requesting. And so something else brought up the worst fears in life. And the worst terrors. And the worst difficulties, and that is what you are feeling. The “What am I doing with my life?” And the physical body. And those feelings manifesting themselves in the physical body, as the pain in your head.
It is not because it has appeared out of nowhere. It is because those are places that you carry those energies with you. The reason the pain manifests in certain parts of your body when you go through difficult times is because those are the parts of your body that have been wanting attention for most of your life. And you know this. And you give it some. But this is a time when it’s screaming out, and saying, “We would like our needs met especially during this difficult time, when there are other difficult times going on, it is especially important to take care of all the needs.” And when other difficult times pop up – when certain difficulties pop up, other difficulties, which are crying out for their needs, may become neglected, and so therefore they come out in these ways.
So there are two reasons why they came out. One is simply a catalyst to bring out things that are already there. Two, when going through difficult times, other needs may get displaced. And three, there is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with your head. There is nothing wrong with your friendship. It is what it is. It is a catalyst to help you move through this lifetime.
Your fight with your friend is a lot less about you than it is about her. On her end, all the things that came from her, are a lot more about her than they are about you. You were just there. You were her trigger. And all those things came up in her, not because you created them in her, because they were already there. And it was simply that your interactions with her brought them out. And she directed them at you. But they were already there. It is not you. You are not to blame. You are not to hold yourself responsible for somebody else’s anger. You are not to give yourself pain that others have. You don’t need to do it. You don’t need to do it. Your pain is yours. But other people’s pains are not yours. You are not broken. There is nothing that needs to be fixed.
That your body feels the tremors of anger being directed toward it is a cause and effect. It is not, in this case, and in many cases, but certainly not in this case, a sign that everything in your life is wrong. It is simply a cause and effect reaction. That’s just how it works. You put a ball on a hill and let go, it’ll go down, even if you don’t want it to. It just will. Someone attacks you with anger, it’s going to hurt. Even if you didn’t do anything wrong, that’s just how it works.
The way to help for it to not hurt as much, is to know this in your mind intellectually, but also, take it in and feel this belief system in your body. Feel this belief system in your body. Feel this in your body. Feel this belief system in your body. Are you ready? To feel it? Are you ready to feel it? There is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with you. You are a divine creation of God. And God made you perfect. There is nothing wrong with you.
Take care of your needs. And find ways to get your needs met. Because you do have a body and your body does have needs. And your body’s needs are generally an expression of your soul’s needs. Right now your soul is screaming, “I want to feel my depths. I want to go deeper and have meaning. I want to feel at home somewhere.” Feel your soul.
And that does not mean you do or don’t have to do anything, moving or not moving. It simply means, we’ve said this, it simply means, number one, acknowledge that it exists. And number two, sit with it. Explore it, and see what comes.
That works with the pain also. “What is this, what happened? Oh she got really angry at me. Well why? Well, I brought up some stuff in her that she didn’t want brought up and she blamed me for it. Well, did I intend to hurt her? No. Do I enjoy hurting her? No. Is it my fault? No. Am I to blame? No. Do I still feel bad about this? Maybe.” But that’s how to explore.
And then move on from the circumstance, to yourself. “Well how do I feel now? This hurts. Well why? Because she attacked me and it hurts. Well what can I do for myself?”
What can you do for yourself when you hurt? Explore that. See what comes. And we can tell you that the deeper you go, the more able you will be to deflect these kinds of things. Or, afterward to be able to purge it from your system.
We honor you. And we bless you on your journey. We honor your journey. We ask that you honor it as well. We know that you have come far. And that you are questioning everything now does not mean, all the way you have come was for not. It simply means you’ve come this far, and now you’ve come to a fork in the road.
All this journey has brought you to a place where you can question yourself in this way. It has created a stepping stone for you to leap to your next journey.
The time to question everything, is the time to question everything. Your direction and your purpose, and meaning and the people in your life, and your activities, and your goals, yes, but to believe that you are questioning everything, means everything else was fruitless, is not accurate.
All of those journeys have gotten you to a place where you can be right here. Well if you wanted to go from there to here, that would be a long chasm to leap. And it’s easier to take the path and go through the little journeys that get you to this point in your long journey.
Do not question everything. Don’t. If you do, then you are, and that is fine. But don’t. Question your belief system, but don’t question your existence. You are a divine creation. Don’t throw that gift away. Hold that within you. Even as you question everything [holding arms spread out], hold on to everything [bringing hands together]. And everything is, are you ready? Everything is, your existence is the gift. That is everything. And everything else, is just everything else.
But everything, [holding hands together], your gift of existence, don’t throw that in the gutter. Don’t. You don’t need to. Don’t put yourself through it. Why? You don’t need to. You don’t need to. You’ve done it before. You don’t need to. If there’s one thing that shall remain solid in your life, know that your entire existence is a gift by the heavens.
With that, we bless you, we honor you, and we thank you. Baruchim Haba’im [A Hebrew greeting that literally means, “Blessed are those who have come”]. You have come. And that is farther than most people are willing to go. That you have come to an evening to improve yourselves and the lives of those around you says a lot about you. Baruchim Haba’im! Blessed are the comers. Blessed are those who have come. Blessed are those who take on the journey of life. Blessed are all of you for being here. We wish you well on your journeys. We thank you for coming, and we hope to see you again.
