We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages Book and The Gabriel Message Cards in these articles to provide insight and inspiration each week that we can bring into our daily lives.
For this week’s issue, The Gabriel Message is encouraging us to slow down and look at life from an expanded perspective.
The Gabriel Message card for this week:
Without Patience you will never understand the meaning of Divine Timing.
I had to laugh when I received this message this week because I was trying to prepare for my Accessing the Wisdom of the Heart class. The insights I was hoping for did not seem to be occurring no matter what amount of effort I was putting into my preparation.
Finally I had to surrender and trust the process. So much so that going for a walk seemed to be the best possible choice for my co-creative practice with the Archangels. Yet another demonstration for me that I need to allow the process of Divine Timing to come into play in my world. I had to trust that since I declared my intention to co-create a brilliant, interesting and, of course, superbly practical class that serves each person involved. Judging from the feedback I received, it was at least close to this exalted intention.
Patience is so tricky sometimes. It is often difficult to allow the situation to be as it is and surrender to the process that is afoot. We have just come through a powerful month on Earth where the eclipse cycle knocked us off any egoistic pillar we may have erected in our lives. It seemed so difficult for me to do any detailed work or create new things. However, if I allowed myself the experience, I was able to expand into brilliant, spacious Beingness, especially in Nature. This spaciousness allowed me to move into an expanded perspective, one that did not give me any clear information, but it did provide a lovely experience of being supported and inspired by the beauty in the world. This activity raised my vibrational frequency and allowed me to feel happy and uplifted. It is that frequency that will attract all the good that I want to experience.
It seems like having patience is difficult for most people in life. I wonder sometimes if it is just inertia, and we get on a roll and find it hard to stop. I have had times when I wondered if it was even possible for me to slow down because it felt like there was so much to do. Life gets very stressful in those moments.
But how much time does it actually take to slow down enough to breathe a little deeper, to stop for one minute to put my hands on my heart to feel that inner sense of coherence? If I can remember my alignment to Source energy, my whole being changes and I feel so much more connected and grounded. This one-minute process can change our consciousness and bring us back into the wisdom of the heart.
There is no way to encourage Divine Timing to move faster. Allowing yourself to have the patience to breathe more deeply and feel at home in yourself helps you to be more at peace with the situations in front of you and allow benevolent outcomes to unfold.
I love Hatha Yoga. It teaches me about slowing down and allowing as well as strengthening my body. One of the things that amazes me is what a metaphor yoga is for life. The continuous deeply-connecting breaths that I do during a yoga class permeates my being so when I finish the class I am more grounded and patient. Sometimes I have gone to class in a resistant mood believing I don’t have time to slow down. But within the first 10 minutes or so, my concentration is focused on my breath and allowing my body to stretch quietly and gently. My mind calms down and I feel fully in my body for the first time that day. My whole yoga class becomes a lesson for allowing things to happen without strain. For these reasons doing an energetic practice like Hatha Yoga, Chi Kung or Tai Chi can be incredibly helpful in these challenging times.
Not surprisingly, I leave class and everything that needs to be done gets done, more easily and with more focus. Or not, but at least I am more allowing of the timing and my mind is not so invested in making things happen. Slowing down my breath and moving more consciously is in harmony with the flow of creative energy. From this place I can allow Divine Timing into every area of my life. Everything becomes more graceful and I am more at ease. Then all is truly well.

The Gabriel Messages Book #19
Without patience you can never understand the meaning of Divine Timing.
Your presence in the world in a conscious manner leads to the opening of the consciousness of all people. Your Soul’s task is to carry the light of love and truth with you wherever you go, no matter what you are doing. Through this intention you will bring more peace and light into the world.
Being a visionary, you see in your mind that which you wish to accomplish. It becomes your intention, as if you are taking aim, pulling back the bow and shooting your arrow toward your target. With this clarity, you will surely reach your mark. There is, however, the question of when.
At work in the world is the principle of Divine Timing. It is one of the immutable laws in the universe, such as Divine Order and Divine Justice. It is not something that you can push to make it go faster. There are times when you must wait upon the will of God in order to have your dream manifest in the most appropriate way for your highest good. This requires patience. It is sometimes difficult to have patience when you can see your vision so clearly. Often there is the desire to make it happen now. This is not God’s will but the ego’s will at work. You might be able to force the manifestation of certain parts of your vision, but it will not feel right once this occurs. It will feel as though you are pushing the river. When all is flowing according to God’s will, miracles occur. You can ride the wave of this energy and it feels effortless.
Imagine that you are at one of those points in your life when you want very badly to have a certain vision manifest. Let’s say you really want it now but you are struggling against a wall of obstacles. If you are mentally or emotionally tense, anxious and impatient, anything which you do physically at this time will be pushing at the energy which is already at work. It is at these times that you must step aside, even though it may be most difficult. Release your striving, and turn the whole situation over to God and the Angels.
You can assist the manifestation of your dream by simply sitting quietly and breathing in Divine Light and Love. As you continue to breathe these balanced breaths, see yourself in a pillar of golden light. This is the light of peace, love and wisdom that connects you with Divine Inspiration and the nurturing presence of the earth. While sitting in this light, in your mind’s eye remember your vision, the dream that you want for your life at this time. Allow your dream to be energized by this pillar of golden light. Know in your heart that you always receive that which is in your highest good. Know that the Angels are blessing you with love and wisdom. They are blessing all that you need to do in order to have your dream. Feel this loving presence with you, enfolding you in love and light. Feel peace permeating every fiber of your being. Know in your heart that all will come to you in perfect Divine Timing. Give thanks for all the blessings in your life. Give thanks that this dream is manifesting in its own perfect and right time for your highest good. And as you exhale, release this vision to God and the Angels and allow this energy to work for you.
This practice will help give you patience and trust in Divine Timing. With a small amount of conscious focus you can begin to apply these principles to your day-to-day living and create a life filled with more peace, joy and love. This is God’s will for all. Call on the Angels for assistance and remember to take time to breathe and receive the knowing in your heart that all is in the flow of Divine creative energy. And most of all remember:
Without patience you can never understand the meaning of Divine Timing.

Flower Essence Readings
During this Eclipse Cycle, taking Flower Essences has made a profound difference in my ability to maintain balance and perspective.I’ve been working with essences and helping people use these powerful gifts from Nature for over 30 years. A personalized Flower Essence Reading, with assistance from the Archangels, can open the way to profound insights into the challenges going on in your life, and bring these aspects into balance.
A Flower Essence Reading with me takes about 45 minutes, and an mp3 recording is made so you can remember what was discussed. Each essence offered is specific for your personal requirements. They address life issues that are registering in your energy field and help to clear the patterns of imbalance that show up and are ready to be released.
This reading is $10 off through November to help give you a good start on the holiday season.
More about the Essences
Flower Essences are subtle liquid extracts of different wild flowers, which are used to address issues of emotional well-being, soul development and mind-body health. They were first developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930’s in England, and have been widely used and researched in Europe for decades. They began gaining popularity in the United States in the 1970’s and have since gained worldwide professional recognition for their significant contribution to holistic health and wellness programs.
I was certified in 1981 by FES and have worked with numbers of people using Flower Essences as an adjunct to their wellness programs, as well as maintaining a Monthly Flower Essence Program. Flower Essences are made with brandy as their preservative and only a few drops every day need to be used internally. Although they are subtle vibrational essences, they can have a profound affect on your well-being.
The 11:11 Meditation
The most important significance of the 11:11 is its availability as a portal to higher consciousness, a moment in time where the Angels of Light can take your offered prayers and good intentions to assist their manifestation on the Earth.
Whenever the 11:11 presents itself, it acts as a daily reminder to take that one minute to hold your dreams in your heart, acknowledge the support available from the Angelic Realms, and have the courage to affirm your willingness to move into new dimensions of Love. When you empower this intention, you can even imagine that there are Archangels standing tall and majestic on either side of a gateway, inviting you into the fulfillment of your prayers and Soul’s gifts. With your intentional prayer, you can step through this portal into your most Divine Self and into the life you are intending. Every 11:11 offers a wondrous moment of ascending liberation from old patterns
This meditation will assist you to empower your 11:11 intentions as it activates your connection to the Archangels supporting you to step into new life awakening within and around you. It can be used whenever the digital clock displays 11:11 and is especially powerful on November 11. As you listen you will also be joining thousands of awakened beings who are working together to bring Divine Love and Presence to the Earth.
A beautiful 11:11 Gateway meditation is available from Shanta. You can purchase and download the 11:11 Meditation here.
