Linda Dillon: Channel for the Council of Love
Suzanne Maresca: Host, InLight Universal
Suzanne Maresca: Today we will be hearing from Archangel Gabrielle on the subject of what may seem at times like extreme energetic sensitivity. Many of us have been experiencing heightened awareness of our surroundings, and the experience can leave us wondering how to integrate the feelings that come with that.
We will also be discussing those who came into this world with the ability to feel the hidden emotions of others. Before ways are discovered to discern one’s own emotions from that of others, the energies can feel quite overwhelming. I didn’t catch on that my daughter was an empath until she was about nine years old and that realization improved our experience immeasurably.
There’s so much to talk about on this particular topic because it’s like we really are changing and growing in every moment. I have certainly wondered how we are supposed to navigate this with our increased sensitivities. It’s still very dense and difficult here.
But I also feel that part of the integration of who we are puts us… I just have this vision of a shield of knowing around us, that this is not all there is; that we have a physical form but this is not all we are. And we are certainly not subject to energies; it’s what we give power to. So this will be an interesting conversation.
Linda Dillon: This will be a very interesting conversation; and I think it’s a very timely conversation because we can’t on the one hand say that we are lightworkers, love-holders in the middle of our Ascension process, and then want to turn off the very gifts that come along with that.
SM: Exactly. If I may, I know you have an announcement to make as well, but I’d like to announce a new show that InLight Universal is launching tomorrow night at 9 EDT. I’ll be hosting and the show is about creating a space for heart-centred expression and sharing. Really, it’s an opportunity for all of you brilliant listeners to come and shine your light as well. We are all expanding our awareness and our aspects and skills and this is a way to share what’s in your heart.
If you want to be part of that, it’ll be posted later on how to participate in that. So just check out the InLight Universal site or Golden Age of Gaia. And you have an announcement too, Linda…
Linda: But I also wanted to say, Suzi, that I think it’s brilliant that you are creating a space where people can simply call in and have conversations, because I think one of the difficulties that I know you hear about and I certainly hear about is that as lightworkers, love-holders, we so often feel isolated; that we either live in areas or neighborhoods or cities or towns or families that really don’t want to hear, or aren’t interested in the same things, topics that we are interested in really talking about. And in fact, we can drive them crazy wanting to talk about it.
So having a platform and having a place where you can talk and have this kind of a conversation is wonderful. So congratulations on your new venture.
Suzi: Thank you. I’ve been very guided and I feel perfectly placed.
Linda: You are, we all are! And my announcement is probably at the other end of the spectrum and it’s about a webinar series that I have been very guided to do, and tried to avoid, but with absolutely no luck! It is brought to you courtesy of the Divine Mother and it is on Core Issues. And let me tell you, dear friends, that if you think that you have cleared your core issues… if I was a gambling person, I would say, “Not!”
And with this Third Wave of the Tsunami of Love, our issues are coming up again, because we are transforming…we are completely transforming our energy, our grid. Our very DNA is transforming. So if there’s any of that deep seated, dark … I’m not talking about vasanas or surface issues, of the things that you’ve worked on clearing for the last 20 years. I’m talking about the real core stuff!
And this is the thing. It’s coming up and it’s what you have always known is there, and it has barred you from fulfilling your fondest dreams, aside from serving the Mother, aside from creating Nova Earth, aside from being lightworkers… you know, the real basic stuff like, “What’s in it for me?”
Well, let me tell you. All of you that I talk to and hear from who want those sacred relationships, who want to bring some kind of financial security or abundance into your lives, or good health, or good family relationships… all these things that you’ve been working on, and you feel like sometimes you are just banging your head against the wall. You can see it out of the corner of your eye but you haven’t ever really been able, in physical reality, to wrap your hands around it and to own it.
Well, guess why? It’s your Core Issues that are barring you from doing it. So this is going to be a really intense webinar series: a very interactive forum, deep meditations, probably a lot of laughter and a lot of tears, and four sessions over five weeks with yours truly in a classroom situation on the computer.
The webinars are recorded so you can go back and look at them time and time and time again. We are starting on May 9th, and it’s Core Issues. And I for one say, “It is time for us to let all of this go.” So come to the Council of Love site, and read up. See how you feel, look inside, and if it’s there, please sign up! Thank you!
SM: Thank you! That is a labour of Love, Linda, because I understand you are following the direction from the Mother and it is pretty much hard to say “No.” It’s not impossible, but I’m also focused, and I know that there are so many of us focused on bringing this all up and eliminating the things that keep us from realizing our potential.
And sometimes, even when we’ve done the clearing, there can be a little residue left over in terms of habits and memories, and a lack of something to replace the cleared thing with – like a good behavior to fill the bad behavior space. We just don’t know sometimes…
Linda: Yes, and the thing is, if you are continuing what you have termed ‘the bad behavior’, it’s because you haven’t gone deep enough and really looked at what’s inside that’s keeping that pattern going. It’s just time to let it go.
I’ve had great discussions with Isaac, my husband, about this. I wanted to call it ‘Purging Core Issues’ and he says, “Oh, that sounds so negative and so harsh. Why don’t we try ‘transforming’ or ‘transmuting’?” But it’s getting rid of this stuff.
And, of course, at the end of a class, once we clear all this stuff, what we’re doing is bringing us into this new theme, this current theme of balance, of really being the embodiment not only of the Mother’s Love but of our Love, of who ‘We’ are.
So it already is a wild ride because how the Council works with me is they walk me through a course, every little step of the way before I get to teach it and share and facilitate the process. So I have been in the thick of this ever since Mother Mary appeared by my bedside and said, “Do it!” It has been a wild ride for the past week!
Let’s talk briefly about what it means to be an ‘empath’, because I think both of us have huge, personal insight and experience. And while, of course, it’s always wonderful to talk to Archangel Gabrielle – and I know She has some insights for us – it’s also important that our fellow listeners understand that we’re right in the thick of it with them as well.
I know that one of the things I’ve experienced, because I am an empath and telepathic, is that for a long time, when I ran into people and once they knew what I did – what’s interesting is that they didn’t really want to get close to me because I think they thought I was going to ‘read’ them.
And, just like you, that is the last thing on my mind or in my interest. I think like many empaths, I have a ‘no trespassing’ sign posted on me, and I post a ‘no trespassing’ sign on other people, because I don’t really – unless there’s a purpose and an invitation, or you have contacted me – I don’t want to read your energy.
I do read the energy when we have something terrible happen like a plane crash or a nuclear spill, or something in nature… I really feel it. But I’ve learned over the years to keep my shields up so that I am not like that sponge and absorbing anything because that’s not how you want to live.
But at the same time, as I was getting ready for this and Gabrielle said, “You know, coming in as the Creator Race, coming in, in our Mastery, it is part of our Angelic Starseed Self that we do. We are empathic, telepathic, because that’s where we’re going. So it’s not something you really want to completely eliminate or shut down. You just want to make sure you’re not carrying it in a way that’s hurting you.
SM: Yeah, and to learn to navigate and know what’s yours and what’s not. Sometimes we make an assumption that other people can see and feel what we can see and feel, and that is absolutely not true.
And without any guidance, an empath in this world would feel… Oh my gosh, it would be just so difficult if you have no support around you and you’re feeling everything. Thank God for the internet because people can do searches and find things that way. A lot of people have found the Golden Age of Gaia site just doing searches, looking for something that makes sense in this world.
But once you understand that you are picking up on other energies, you can start to practice the discernment of knowing what’s yours and what’s not yours. And that’s actually good for everybody, no matter what level of sensitivity you have.
Linda: That’s very important, because that’s one of the reasons why I have that ‘no trespassing’ sign. If you’re an empath and you have difficulty navigating this – as I think about how I do that, let me talk about that briefly. You and I both, Suzi, live in places that aren’t in the middle of a city, and we have both psychic and private space, nature, around us.
Isaac does, I would say, 95% of all our shopping. I thank God I have him because one thing I do not deal well with is grocery stores, with the lights, with the energies, with the whole situation. If I have to go to a mall, for example, I choose a time like a Wednesday morning when no one is there. I have my list. I am in, I am out [laughter] and I am done!
I think I shop for 99% of my clothes in one small store where I know the sales lady and I don’t have to deal with anyone else! [Laughter] So I’ve made these unconscious adjustments in my life. I don’t go to rock concerts because the energy is too bombarding… anything like that.
So you have to sort of adjust your way of navigating so that you don’t feel that you are being bombarded or invaded, and learn to put up that shield of protection.
SM: As I witness my daughter and the things that she goes through, I realize that I may not be as empathic as she is and subject to it. But I am at least as sensitive, if not more so, but in different ways. Being that I was born at the time that I was, into the family that I was… I’m not sure what made it so that I could maybe withstand a little bit more than she does in terms of going to a mall.
I’m not really sure what the mechanism is, but I do feel it has something to do with the expansion of my awareness, of why I’m here, what I’m here to do… shifting into the whole Oneness idea, being One energetically with everything – it really helps me a lot.
Like if I go out on the hammock and I’m meditating and there’s leaf-blowing going on, or somebody using a chainsaw even, or traffic going by, I don’t even put in my earplugs because I’m just thinking of all the sounds as just part of my reality, and it sort of fades away and doesn’t bother me.
Linda: Good, because if we are part of the Unified Grid… increasingly they refer to us as ‘Gaians’, not as ‘Floridians’… [Laughter] What do you call people in New Jersey?
SM: [Laughter] I could make a joke but I won’t…
Linda: [Laughter] … but if we’re in this Unified Grid, like you say ‘of One’, then the more that we’re in that energy, we realize that the ebb and flow of the higher vibration will carry us through, and that the lower… what I tend to call ‘the drama energy’ will disappear. So take heart!
SM: Take heart, that’s right! Oh my gosh, everything is changing. It just feels like another world from two weeks ago even, specifically before the equinox; I feel like everything has changed for me…
Linda: Everything is shifting every day.
SM: Every day, it’s true, whether you’re feeling it or not. Perception really is everything.
[Meditation from 18’20 to 22’05]
Archangel Gabrielle: Greetings, I am Gabrielle, Archangel, Lily of Love, Trumpet of Truth, Messenger of One, Archangel of Communications. Welcome, my beloveds. Welcome to this Council and to this time of enormous change, for it is a time not only of sea change, it is a time, yet again, of Tsunami.
And so, for those of you who are empathic, sensitive, telepathic, it is an increase in this wondrous ability. Yes, of course, as with all gifts, you learn, you come to understand in the Truth of your own magnificence how you employ this gift, the same way you learn or remember how to employ your voice, your vision, your 3rd and 4th and 5th eyes.
Sweet angels, the abilities that you have brought to the planet during this time of change are far greater than you are even imagining in this moment, and they are opening and expanding increasingly. So there is not a chance – let us put it, that it is highly unlikely in the intention of the Mother, that your talents, whether it is sensitivity, empathic or telepathic, are going to be shut down or shut off. That is not the way.
You come forth as New Race; you come forth as the reembodiment, the reincarnation of the Creator Race. What does this mean?
We have spoken of it before, of the talents and the abilities to create and co-create. But part of knowing how to proceed is also being able to key in, to understand the fields – not necessarily even of the individual, although there are times when that is desirable – but to be able to key into the pulse, the mood, the emotional awareness, the mental acuity, the readiness factor, the spiritual elevation, the spiritual maturity of the human race to proceed.
And then, because you have this information, you are able to communicate to the collective, to groups, to individuals, where they exist, where they are stationed, where they are anchored. If you begin speaking French to a baby, chances are they will learn to speak French and they will adapt. Languages and telepathic communication are already present in the infants.
Think of the number of situations that you encounter. Children know. And it is only through what you have termed ‘the socialization process’ that this wondrous ability to communicate has been turned off. Well, it is not in the highest good of the collective or the individual to turn off this spectacular talent.
How you manage this ability to communicate, because that is what empathic knowing is – if you are communicating field to field, field to larger field, field to the entire unified field, field to the collective, field to the Universe, to your Star brothers and sisters – this is how they communicate.
So what you are doing is able to adjust how you speak, how you communicate, body language, eye language, smile language, in all of these ways, because you have the advantage, dear hearts, of knowing. Not assuming, but of knowing where people are: what their difficulties are, what their blockages are, what their thoughts are, what their troubles…or what they assume to be troubles, are.
And you may send until it is perfectly second nature. You are sending to them what is appropriate, welcome, and that is a very important clue: what is welcome and what is available. Now, it is not intended unless consciously invited… you are not inviting that energy unless it is a perfect, welcome again -match to come within your field.
Yes, the channel has spoken of posting a ‘no trespassing’ sign, and actually that is something that I in fact taught her until it became second nature, and that is what I suggest to many of you: you put up your shields that Michael has given you, you enfold yourself in the cocoon of pink and gold, and you use every ability to stay within your bubble, within your Seal of Solomon, so that you are not feeling in any way compromised. That is not the gift. And what is happening is this turning the gift of being empathic or telepathic or sensitive into a curse or a nightmare, and that was never the intention.
So the energy that is coming within you, because you are heartfelt individuals; the empaths are heart-centred already. It is not that you need to learn to become heart consciousness. You are already there. So what you are doing is you are doing the outflow. And you have a very clear stop-gap for the backwash or the inflow, because it is not necessarily for your highest good. You receive what you want to receive and nothing more and nothing less.
Now, I know that you will have a number of questions about this, dear Suzanne. Where do you wish to begin?
SM: Oh [laughter], I thought you would be going on for more! Okay. Well, I imagine the question on our minds collectively is how long this can go on that our sensitivity is increased while this world is still entangled in chaos? Like it’s more than just feeling other people’s emotions; it’s everything that’s going on.
And as we have more sensitivities, it can become a little more difficult. But what needs to happen feels to me like an integration of all our parts; that we truly understand that the full power of the Light is ready to come through us when we can successfully release all that no longer serves, all that does not have Love as its core. But maybe that’s different for everybody?
AAG: It is not different for everybody. In fact, it is identical for everybody.
Now let us explain. And that is why we say, “This is not going to stop or reverse.” And the sensitivity – and let us simply use those three terms interchangeably – the sensitivity is only going to grow as you become higher or more interdimensional, as you become more anchored in your heart awareness and consciousness, as you embody and become the living flower of the Mother, the blossoming tree.
These sensitivities are only going to increase. Now, is there chaos and mayhem upon the planet? Yes. But we are not suggesting that you allow, yes ‘allow’ that energy to enter into your field. So what you are doing is staying in the highest vibration, the vibration of Love, and the vibration – can we use that term, because many of you will understand it – of ‘self-containment’.
So that what is going on out there with the progression of the human race – as they resolve and come to an understanding that the mayhem does not serve them – that you are not participating. In your outflow, you are sending the energy out because you are observing it, you are the observer, you are the discerner of that energy.
It is not that you are blind. We would never suggest that because that would be in denial. But what you are doing is you are observing, you are discerning, you are sending targeted energy and Love where it is needed, but you are not taking it in.
That emotional trauma-morass-chaos-mayhem is like a cancer that has need and is being healed. And it is being healed by the Mother’s energies, by the increase of her gifts of Clarity and Purity and Grace. It is being healed by each of you that send Love. But you are not going there because it does not exist. What you would be doing is throwing yourself into a past reality that you have only recently escaped. That would be the most foolhardy thing you could ever do.
So what you do from your bubble is you observe, you discern, you send, but you anchor in the Unified Grid of Love, of One, of the reality of your true Self, and the truth of the collective.
So, we have not talked about this before, but what you are doing when you are entering into that Unified Grid is you are also connecting with the Higher Self of all of those beings that are perhaps still acting out. So you are connecting with the collective in an entirely different realm and dimension. And that is where you wish to be.
As a sensitive, if you enter into that foray, into that war zone, it will hurt you. It is that simple. You will feel like your circuits are being blown apart. You will feel the pain, the suffering, the anxiety, and that is never our recommendation.
Even those of you who work with our beloved Michael, Mi-cha-el, and travel with him in your night work, you go and you send and you insert Peace, and you anchor Peace, and you infuse the hearts of those that are engaged in various forms of violence. But you do not inject yourself and start participating in the violence. You would never get back to your bed! That is not the way in which to proceed.
When you are healing – I use this example because so many of you do healing work – you allow yourself to be the vessel and the energy passes through you, picking up your bright delight, and sends into either the environment, the individual or to Gaia herself, but you send it… you do not ‘pull out’ in the sense that you bring it into yourself, the disease, the agony, the sorrow, the pain. You would never do that.
So when you think of yourself as sensitive or as an empath, what you can start to think of yourself as is a Master Transmitter. Many of you are beacons – most of you. It is your second nature. You are beacons and you are anchors; you are pillars of Light in this time of transition, but you are transmitters. Yes, at times, you are also transmuters, but you are absolutely, as empaths, transmitters, and the transmission is outward.
You may collect pertinent collective information, but you view it only as information. What is extracted before you bring it in, before you allow it even in the edges of your field, you extract emotion, you extract ego, you extract what you can think of as recalcitrant, resistant or ‘dark’ energy. So all you get is information. Is this clear?
SM: Yes, it is. Something else that’s occurred to me is that it’s only what is true right now is what matters. So in this moment, if you are not experiencing… like the situation around the world: what is true for you in this moment is what to pay attention to.
But that also brings me to, say, environmental things that would be impinging someone’s sensitivities, for example, smells and loud sounds. We can protect ourselves to a certain degree, but we don’t live in caves and there are other people around us that have practices and things that might bother us. Would you have anything to say about those sorts of things, sensitivities?
AAG: You yourself, sweet angel, have indicated a wonderful way because it is the Truth of the Angelic Realm. When you conjoin into the One, the… if we can call it ‘the disturbance factor’… will go from 10 to a 1 or 2. Now will it completely disappear? No. Because it is also part of your beingness, those irritating smells, irritating sounds, discordance. Discordance is abrasive, and discordance is exceptionally abrasive to the empath.
And so what you are going to do is, as much as possible, is you conjoin into the reality of the One, of that Unified Grid, and you avoid situations that you know are going to bring about that discordance. Now, you live in a world – silence – unfortunately…it will be restored, but as you have said, dear Suzanne, we are talking about the ‘Now’. Silence used to be quite literally golden.
There are very few places upon your planet of sweet Gaia where there is true silence anymore. And even in the places of the grandest beauty, in the middle of the ocean, in the middle of the Himalayas, in the deepest forest, there are still sound waves that were not there and that were not intended to be there. So that will come.
But to address your question – the irritating, abrasive sound, smells, even the observation of certain behaviors, has need to be toned down – put mufflers, cocoons, all around you. That is why I have suggested: see yourself in a cotton candy cloud and you are inside the cloud, that you have this soft, absorbent material all around you.
So not only are you in your bubble, your bubble is filled with the cotton candy, your shield of titanium is outside your bubble, and then there are many more layers of the cotton candy outside of that, so that those sounds are passing through many, many layers to come from a 10 to a 1 or 2. Because they cannot, in this moment. Are they dissipating? Yes. Have they dissipated? No.
SM: Right. Well, to what you’ve spoken to, my feeling is that one of the first things that sensitive people need to do is to embrace their sensitivity and say, “This is who I am and I love who I am, and I accept this; and I know I will find ways to navigate this world and be my beautiful, sensitive self.”
AAG: In all ways, it is about loving yourself. And to be a sensitive, to be an empath, to be telepathic is a gift. And it is… think of it as being a step ahead on the evolutionary chain. You are wanting to go to the higher dimensions where telepathy and the unified Love and the field is all there and available, where your 3rd and 4th eye are completely activated, where your vision and your auditory channels are wide open.
But to be in that space, in this very moment, you are a step ahead of the collective. But you are part of the evolutionary jump. So for you to not enjoy it as the gift it is and to Love yourself as the extraordinary being that you are, as the transmitter that you are, would be very sad.
SM: Yes. And what’s coming to me too is also to shake off the labels that have been put on us through life. Maybe our families were uncomfortable with our sensitivities, and we’ve been ridiculed for it and all that sort of thing. That needs clearing too. Anything that anybody’s told us about how we are, if it’s at all negative, to be able to transcend that and clear it. So the clearing and the acceptance of our Divinity is key here.
AAG: It is the acceptance of your Divinity, the acceptance of your magnificence, the acceptance of who you are. In another conversation that you have had with this Council, and you have talked about physical adjustments – of becoming younger, of becoming the beauty of who you really are – and the first step in that has always been the embrace of who you are in this very moment.
So the beginning point for all beings: empaths, sensitives, telepathics begins with the loving of who you are in this moment.
Now let us talk of something else that is exceptionally important, and I would be remiss if I did not bring this to the forefront.
For the empaths, for the sensitives in your New Realm where we are asking, inviting, begging you to step forward into action, to be the observer-participant… and that applies to all beings, all lightworkers, all love-holders, and we hope, the entire human race. For how else do we create Nova Earth? But, let us speak of this.
For the empath, the most important elimination, restriction of all, is the elimination of drama. It will never work. You will be in a world of misery if you do not, first and foremost eliminate drama. Drama has been the addiction of the human collective in the old third, and it has taken many faces and had many qualities. And they have all been aberrant.
So, one of the first things that an empath must defend, eliminate, exclude, expel from their lives is this drama. Now there is wonderful drama that they can become, you all can become re-addicted to. And you have spoken to the channel about this as you began today.
The daffodils peaking their yellow heads up through the ground, the leaves on the trees unfurling – this is the drama and the beauty of Gaia. This is the gift. But the drama of pain and suffering and sorrow and hurting and greed and lust and lack and cruelty… there is no place for it in the human collective, period.
But to the empath, to even glance in that direction… it is going to destroy you. So you must, and you will not hear us say ‘must’ very often, you must let it go.
SM: Yes, indeed. Well, this has been very wonderful, very very fabulous. I was wondering if you had anything else to say in closing?
AAG: Sweet Angels of Light, Starseeds, Earth-keepers, empaths, sensitives, let this be one of my final comments.
In the human collective, there is still this quality that is not charming and it is called ‘jealousy’. There are many who are jealous of your qualities. Now we are transforming this, you are transforming this, to admiration. Admire this wondrous capacity that you have and know that it is shared by the Angels, the Archangels, your Star family, the Ascended Masters and the Mother Herself.
Admire who you are and share freely. Be the transmitter that you came to be. Do not sit in exclusion, but sit in temperance of what works for you. And shield, cocoon, and send, not receive!
Go with my love beloveds, and go in Peace.
SM: Beautiful, thank you Gabrielle.
AAG: You are welcome, sweet one. Farewell.
