The Gabriel Message Card for this Week
Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice within you
to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.
Shanta GabrielThis is one of my favorite Gabriel Messages. It describes the beautiful experience of receiving Divine Light and allowing the power of Divine Intelligence and Love to permeate your energy system.
When we are willing to ask for the blessing of Divine Light, our hearts can become an open vessel to receive. This willingness is a huge step in our evolution, especially when life seems so difficult to understand in these fast-changing times.
When I was in a dark time a number of years ago, one of my teachers told me that confusion was a great gift because it leads to Clarity. That was difficult to hear, but when I allowed myself to just be willing to receive, it felt like doors in my mind opened to the awareness that was lurking behind the clouds of confusion.
The next step is to give ourselves the space and time we need to allow this experience into our being. Creating a Sacred Space in our home is a brilliant activity for our spiritual practice, as it creates a container to hold all your deepest, heartfelt intentions. This space becomes a sanctuary for me when I need to remember what I truly want to experience in my life. There is a video about this on my website.
Even if we can only sit for five or ten minutes to breathe deeply and set our intentions for the day, we have the opportunity to receive Divine Light into every cell of our bodies. We are creating new crystalline structures within us when we do this practice. We are also receiving the Divine Intelligence and Love inherent in the Light frequencies. I imagine the area around my heart and thymus to be a beautiful holy chalice that can receive all that I need for my highest good.
Many years ago my guru, who was from India, spoke of the experience of God’s Love as Amrita — a sweetness at the back of the tongue during meditation. He said this is one way that we know we are receiving the high frequencies of Divine Love into our beings. My devotional nature especially loves this practice, for when I take the time to create a space where I can receive this gift, my heart is flooded, opened and blessed with Divine Love.
I love the visual practice given by Archangel Gabriel to become an empty chalice, a holy vessel open to receive a waterfall of Golden Light from the most Divine Source. In this very receptive state, we are able to welcome the power of God’s Wisdom and Love into our beings, and have a very real experience that we can remember as truth for us.
I ask to be a pure and holy vessel for your Love. May I open new channels within me to receive more Wisdom, more Guidance, more Strength, more Compassion and, especially, may I receive your Love to the depths of my being.
Allow me to have a visceral experience of your Presence within me and open to the sweetness of the Love that is available for me to receive with every breath I take.
I am willing to live in your Love and accept that there is never a time when I am not being held in the Wings of Pure Light. Help me to remember how supported I am and receive it deeply within my being.
Thank you for blessing me, inspiring me and guiding me so I may truly know that I am never alone, and that Well-Being is my only reality. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages Book #18
Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice within you to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.
When you ask to be a receptacle for pure light, you are saying that you have space within you, and that you are willing to fill this space with love and all that which is God. You are saying that you want to be filled with Divine Light, and assist the process of bringing Heaven to Earth.
This is important for everyone, and it does not interfere with other work or with family life. Recognize that your purpose on this planet is to be a bridge between Heaven and Earth, so that all beings may live in greater Harmony, Peace and Love. This mission requires assistance from all. Each person who turns toward Divine Light assists this purpose and raises the collective consciousness of the planet. The way to bring Peace on Earth is through one person at a time. So always remember how important you are to the evolution of consciousness on the Earth.
Being a receptacle for Divine Light expands your mind and creates new ways of responding to situations in your life. When you become a receptacle for Pure Light you are in prayer for yourself and others. Whenever you pray you open the door for more Light to come through you. Prayer is a great form of purification, and raises your vibrational frequency as well as others through you. The higher your vibration, the more Peace and Love you will feel.
Visualization can greatly assist the process of becoming a Holy Vessel. Give yourself time to sit quietly, away from the world. Flowers and candles can uplift the energy around you and help you feel more expansive. Take some time to breathe balanced breaths, until you are in a calm and relaxed state. Pray to the Divine Presence that you may be a receptacle for pure light and then imagine that your body becomes a beautiful golden chalice. See it empty, or only partially filled with Divine Light. Imagine that you are sitting under a waterfall of God’s Golden Light. This Golden Light has great power and contains both Wisdom and Love. Imagine that you are drinking in this precious Light, and as it fills up your golden chalice, you are absorbing love and wisdom into every fiber of your being. The more full your vessel becomes, the more loving and blissful you feel. Make your chalice very large, so your entire energy field is expanded.
Take time every day to sit in Divine Light and Pure Love. Drink in this Light, then let it shine into the world, so all may know the truth of God’s presence. You will find yourself becoming more loving, expansive and clear. Decisions will be easier as you feel connected to a greater Source of Wisdom within your heart.
This simple exercise holds great power, and whenever or wherever it is done, it will allow you to be attuned to your God Source at all times. The more often you do it, the stronger you will become. The greater the level of Strength, Light and Love you are able to hold within you, the easier it will be to serve God and to assist others in their evolution.
You will be one who is a bridge between Heaven and Earth when you remember your inspiration for today:
Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice
within you to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.
