Sacred Union

Do you take your Self to be your Dearly Beloved – to have and to hold, to love and to cherish, to honor and respect from this day forward, for as long as you live?

As these words were spoken through my mouth, I was stunned into silence. If I had not been sitting cross-legged on the floor, I would have fallen out of my chair. The recorder was still on, the channeling of the meditation for the second chakra continued, while I gathered my focus to listen intently for the resounding voice of Archangel Gabriel in my mind. “Say yes,” he said. “Say yes,” I whispered into the microphone. The intention of this recording was to assist all those listening to the meditation, not only to connect more deeply with the attributes of the second chakra, but also to encourage them to have the same profound experience of my beloved Archangel Gabriel that I was in the midst of.

Recording these meditations for the Archangel Study Program had become a real adventure in faith, because I never knew what I would say when I sat down at my altar with the recorder on. This message from Archangel Gabriel had a profound affect on me as it represented a Sacred Union between my small self with the Divine Self that exists within me and in us all. I knew that this inner marriage was the only way I could reach the union with all these parts of me - balanced in my inner male/female, in harmony and acceptance with all my varied, sometimes less appealing, aspects, becoming totally loving of who I am as a person. If I ever longed for a spiritual partnership, I realized in that moment, that it began with me at a core level within my being.

So many people ask in their private life path readings with me if they will ever find their soul mate. I also have wondered this for myself, although I have heard that a true soul mate is a person that pushes all one’s most uncomfortable buttons. That version did not exactly fit into the romantic image I was holding! There are so many beautiful books written on this subject that it is clearly something that many people are interested in. What became obvious in this early morning channeling of Light and practical wisdom from Archangel Gabriel, is that loving union within myself must exist in order to experience union with another person. When I can honor and respect myself, I can also give that to my partner. Finding true love begins with loving me to the very depths of my being, wrinkles and all.

This is only one of the lessons Archangel Gabriel was teaching me on the morning I recorded the meditation for the second chakra of my Archangel Study Program. He was also describing other attributes of that energy center, such as balance, harmony and creativity. In fact, the power of the creativity being offered in the second chakra, was the revelation for the Law of Creative Solutions. I know that if we were just enlightened enough to see from the prospective of the Angels, we would know there was a creative solution in every situation, no matter what. I have found over the years that I can ask the Angels for this to be revealed to me and within a short time – Creative Solutions Abound!

May we all find that place within ourselves where God dwells and we can experience the Sacred Union of the Self.

With Love and Respect,
Shanta Gabriel

this happened to me last week with a literal slipping on of the ring instead of a question.

I remember with such clarity the night I was holding a very loving being in my conciousness, wondering "Who is this?" It suddenly occurred to me that I had been seeking myself, and there I was holding and loving myself, and that I had access to myself at all times. This meditation is a beautiful affirmation of that truth. Thank you, Archangel Gabriel and Shanta Gabriet.

Hi Shanta Gabriel,
the first paragraph had me sitting upright suddenly and a bit emotional as well.

It also reminded me yet again that although it would be lovely to find the right romantic partner, in truth, the main reason for this is that I wish to feel happy and good about myself and my life. There is the 'old' part of my that longs for someone to make my life happier and more fulfilled.

And yet, I know that unless I find this in myself first, no relationship with others can truly achieve this. I've come a long way towards this, still working through insecurities.

Love & Blessings,
