breathe in
as though
you are
the Holy One

as though
you are
the sand around the ocean

as though
you are
a star giving birth

absorbing the matter of the universe
and lighting the heavens

all bindings of the past
in this body

as a bird leaves the ground
when taking flight

as though
you are creation itself

with every caress

through emptiness

You are no less than this.

just sit


feel how your heart naturally expands
and rests
with no effort from you whatsoever

in the absence of fear
the heart naturally expands to include everything
and everyone

see how there is nothing real that can hold your love back
nothing real that can separate my heart from yours

see how everyone is gifted by your open heart
especially you
– Spirit speaking through Sylvia
May 11

I’d been struggling for a few days feeling pulled in different directions and wondering how best to expand my business with SO much that wants to come through and feeling overwhelmed by the possibilities.

I see so many of us on the threshold of living and working at a whole new level, so I share this with the intention that it may inspire those having a similar experience. Here’s the message from Spirit that I got today in answer to my prayer for guidance.


At this crossroads, we encourage you to choose the direction that feels most like “going for it.”

Choose the way that may seem like a “long shot,” and may not even be logical, but is inspiring and causes you to feel excited, even thrilled.

This is not the way that feels like playing it safe, playing small or “minimizing risks.”

Our guidance is to choose the MOST expansive, generous, confident movement that calls to you, although multiple voices inside you would shoot this down with voices of fear disguised as logic.

Give these possibilities room to breathe, be heard, to speak.

The time for contraction is over.

Contraction in the sense of holding back out of fear, shutting down, ignoring the call, however small or grand it may seem.

There is and will continue to be a need for expansion paired with the naturally balanced expression of contraction, like breathing in and out, but in the larger cycle of evolution, this is a time of great expansion. The greatest expansion known in your world.

This is why you are having the sense that there’s “no break” or pause in this curve of acceleration. This is also why learning to rest during any activity, to experience stillness even in expansion is vital through this transition time as there will be no break or slowing down of evolution, only continued acceleration of consciousness.

And we would remind you that your in-breath is especially important at this time as it is your personal experience of expansion. Don’t worry about past restrictions, don’t worry about analyzing or even “healing” the memory of trauma. Simply experience each new moment as the new birth that it is and the past will slough off like a snake shedding its skin.

Understanding or dwelling on the old skin is not necessary and does not warrant attention. All attention can stay with this unfolding moment and the growth that is present NOW.

Once the separation between us is fully dissolved, and we speak freely through you, as you, you will see that your ego’s belief that it exists and is necessary to manage or create anything is absurd.

The Truth of you is so much more than the mind will ever comprehend.
Rest in this.

Surrender the thought (the ancient need) to believe that “you” as a personality exist.

Imagine life beyond “I.”

Imagine life without the need to create through the drive for significance or control – the will.

The will, a mechanism for development is part of the human experience only as a stage to pass through. Like an adolescent developing a sense of self to experience autonomy.

It is simply an experience (meant to be a temporary one) on your way back to Oneness.

It is only in life not experienced fully that movement through these stages is obstructed. And when the flow of life resumes, which it inevitably does (even when this requires lifetimes), the being matures, as you are designed to do naturally.

As a species, you are now growing beyond the adolescent ego to the fullness of maturity as spiritual beings.

This is the circle of experience humanity has chosen.

Forgetting, in order to experience the joy of remembering.
Sleeping, in order to experience the joy of waking up.
Dying, in order to experience the joy of rebirth.

Remember that whenever there is struggle, there is illusion.

And every moment of struggle IS the opportunity to wake up.

Fall into your own Heart




Soft landing, isn’t it?

The mind likes to make up stories

about it being a leap into the abyss.

That’s the only way you can stay afraid.

Once you have felt this landing

you can never forget how short the distance is

from fear into love.

You might call it one atom

but even that is too far.

There is no distance here.

Only the leap.

True Power

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Creation, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on True Power

True Power says
nothing is small
every breath we take
every word we say
is True Power

The power of life
the power of love
coming to life

And from this place
playing small seems like very silly play

So I step into Power
I step into my Deepest Knowing
and it is good.

I feel a ripple in the world

A ripple I’m connected with.
I feel, I understand it
because I have let go of the ego wanting credit, or acknowledgement.
That releases it to be a full wave form
I’m just gratetful
And it goes and goes and effects the world in ways I never could have guessed
each moment, each action
adds to that natural effect

I  feel this wave as it builds and gets a higher and higher curve to it

I’m bouyant
liquid light

The end of the world as we know it

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Clarity, Connection to Source, Messages from Spirit, Support, Time Comments Off on The end of the world as we know it

If you’ve been  paying attention to the countdown for the exciting conclusion to the Mayan Calendar at the Winter Solstice in December 2012, here’s a channeled message I received from Spirit about what looks to be a beginning, not the end of time.

The Winter Solstice of 2012 has been the focus of great hope and intention and it is indeed a special day, but as with many events of cosmic significance it can be easy to misinterpret or get in a stressful relationship with because of the sense of momentousness.

There is no need for this.

While a certain amount of excitement and anticipation is natural, seeing one day as more important than any other can take our attention away from the present moment, which is more powerful than anything happening around us-even significant cosmic events.

For many years now the song of the Universe has been building to a crescendo. More and more people are hearing the change and contributing their own unique melodies and harmonies as this part of the era or age comes to a conclusion.

If you see it as a symphony, the solstice of December 21st, 2012 is simply a turning point, a pause between movements and the beginning of a new one with a different feeling, different tempo and new themes.

For those of you who have been preparing and consciously participating in this galactic shift, observing the countdown of days to the solstice is an opportunity to accelerate your own awakening in unexpected ways.

Planning special events to gather, meditate and tune in during the passage of earth into this new energy is encouraged, but to focus attention only on the day of the solstice would cause you to miss many points of extraordinary expansion in the days leading up to and following that moment.

There is tremendous energy available now for all those who are willing to receive it.

Our guidance to you is to meditate each day at any time you feel called. Listen to your body for subtle cues to pause and quiet your mind. These signals will be unique to you, perhaps a sudden wave of tiredness, a desire for silence, an interruption that reminds you to take a break. Do your best to follow these impulses whether the meditative moments are brief or extended.

This is how your nervous system will be able to tune itself to higher and higher frequencies gently and with ease. Trust the wisdom of your body through this time of transition and you will receive benefits greater than your logical mind can understand.

You will also substantially increase your capacity to live in the moment as you consistently meditate during the days before, during and after the 2012 Winter Solstice. This is by far the greatest potential of the “portal” in consciousness that has been so anxiously awaited for millennia-for each of you to experience in your own heart the light of truth, the infinite joy of being.

Even as you celebrate and sense the significance of the position of planets on a grand scale, keep your focus in the moment, keep your awareness with the portal of consciousness that is within you, and you will have the opportunity to participate in a chorus of joy that is greater than anything you have imagined.

You see how much fun life can be
when fear isn’t running the show?

Your willingness to face situations
that you feared
has shown you
that fear has no power
when it is faced.

Fear only has power
when it is avoided.

Every time you walk into the sensation of fear
it can only vanish –
dissolving in the fire of Presence.

Every time you walk through one of these curtains of fear,
you bring more of yourself to the party.

And What A Party!

We love that you are noticing the acceleration of time
(many people are not).

We hope that you are also noticing
the acceleration of ease
the acceleration of consciousness
the acceleration of love.

You are being swept along on a current
so vast, there can be no mistaking that
your small self has no control.

And your large self
leads the way.

Stay in the current of joy.

Allow you heart to be
swept away
in a tidal wave
of love.

The wave
is unstoppable
and will

There is no doing to be done.

Only surrender.

You are opening to miracles
in ways that you haven’t imagined before.

It is a time for miracles,

of doing.

Feel how effortless the transition is now.

Feel the unknown
rising to meet you
in ecstatic joy.

Feel your mind’s need for control
v a n i s h.

Feel the fluidity of reality.

See the infinitude of your palette
– of creation,

Let your heart sing!

For as you open your heart
you open a new world.

You Are Ready

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Clarity, Messages from Spirit, Support Comments Off on You Are Ready

Now is the time to claim your place in the evolution of humanity.

There is no “doing” to be done.
Only settling into the truth and fully accepting the path you have chosen.

The peace you are feeling now is a deep knowing of your place and purpose.

There are many forms this purpose could have taken and we acknowledge you for choosing to serve many at this time.

This choice will bring you into deeper alignment with the long arc of change.

While choosing to serve at the level of one-on-one is equally important and one that many are called to, we recognize the unique commitment of those who accept the call to be leaders at the group level.

This choice is bringing about an internal transition, an expansion, a shift in your very being. The essence of your purpose remains unchanged from the course you chose before this lifetime, and yet as you choose a scale of service that expands from your previous experience (and frightened you in the past), you engage another level of support from the unseen world.

We are with you as you move forward in service to larger and larger community.
Trust the pulse of joy that draws you along the path.
Trust your heart’s message to those you would serve.

Remember that as you share the depth of your presence and understanding, the right people will be drawn to you.

It has only been your resistance that has made the path difficult at times.
Feel the ease now as you no longer struggle for either anonymity or recognition.

There is nothing to be other than your full self.
Your loving self.

You are ready.

– Spirit speaking through/to Sylvia

Everything is changing.
And by everything we mean, EVERY assumption, every belief, every
system, every pattern.

The only thing unchanging is love, oneness, peace, the unity of all

But even your experience of all of these is changing radically.
The entry points into these experiences are changing.

Can you feel the love in fear?
Can you feel peace in chaos?
Every moment is inviting you into the new world.
As quickly as you are willing to be made new.

Your DNA is changing.
Your breath is changing.
The consciousness that encompasses ALL is changing.
The very core of life is changing – through you.

Change is touching every part of human consciousness from the micro to the macro.

Some of this change is visible (especially to those on the leading edge), but most is not yet.

Trust your own experience and don’t worry about how others are experiencing their awakening.

Even the way you change is changing.

So what would you cling to?

Don’t even seek to answer this question, but simply notice anything that would not be easily released if you were to wake up in a totally new world.

Focus instead on what is emerging.

Imagine the new world.
We realize this is antithetical to the human pattern of being

We know that for millions of years, you have been building slowly
and incrementally in an evolutionary curve and yes, we are proposing
that you now become referenced instead to the unknown.

We invite you to fully open to quantum change, to allow a shift as
significant as moving from ocean to land. The first creature to do
that successfully was surely risking death, and instead created the
ability to breathe air.

Play with this possibility.
Ask “what if…” and see what emerges.

Root yourself in the Unknown,
and you will find it is the richest soil.

Evolving Relationships

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, I See You, Love, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on Evolving Relationships

There are many people you have been with before in many different forms of relating, and these connections are what weave you all together.

Close-knit groups that connect to other close-knit groups are connecting the human family much more quickly than can happen through individual relationships. This will continue to speed up and transform the very foundation of relating.

The old form of seeking one soul mate for a lifetime is no longer necessary as it once was for forging deep connections in the human family.

A level of relatedness and intimacy that used to take many years, can now be reached in weeks or months. As growth accelerates and you all awaken to your divinity, the old pattern of seeking love outside yourself is quickly dissolving.

Each individual who experiences this shift is literally shifting the DNA of the whole human organism at a very fundamental level.  The level of our most intimate relationship– ourselves.

Now that is something to celebrate!

Couples are now drawn to “see” each other and be seen. Fortunately there are many souls who have made these agreements, so that none of us can forget (for very long) who we are and why we are here and so of course we find intimate relationships with these souls.

And we learn and grow and stay together for a short time or a long time. The duration is less important than the recognition.

The more centered in your own soul you can BE, the more powerful your relationships will be.

Dependency (physical, emotional and psychological) has been at the core of most mated relationships in human history. Now the foundation  is shifting to love. You are beginning to experience the truth of love in the only way it can be true.

Connection to the source of love in your own heart.

In the past, the words “I love…” have mostly  meant “I need love” and now as you say “I love,” it will mean “I AM Love.”

Connecting to “the one” may still be the experience for a few that have agreed to serve in this way (to hold this energy), but for most “the one” is a worn-out fantasy of finding fulfillment in another.

Inside or Outside?

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Connection to Source, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on Inside or Outside?

OceanMeditationSometimes you will experience us within you and sometimes you will experience us in all that surrounds you.

Remember that both are equally true.

Yes, look for answers within, and also pay attention to the myriad ways in which we exist.
Sometimes you are partial to “looking within’ as if that is the better way to access Spirit and sometimes you look outside yourself for answers or validation.

It is all God.
There is no need to even make a distinction or have a preference.
And source requires no special methods to access.

Just awareness.
Even the preference for ‘going within’ may be a subtle form of separation. It is a withdrawing from the connection to what is “outside.”

It is true that each human experiences awareness from what appears to be ‘within’ and it is good to remember that this is but one perspective of All That Is and no more real than any other.

A subtle point, but we know that you are noticing the subtleties of ego.
Who is the one that believes it exists to go inside or outside?

S: Thank you. I’m feeling these distinctions dissolving into a deeper experience of Oneness.

Yes. We know.

We are with you in every breath.

Love Aware and Unaware of Itself

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Love, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on Love Aware and Unaware of Itself

The love that you have always wanted
is in you
and around you
in such vast quantities
that you could not hold it back
even if you were to die trying.

Even the places that appear to not be love
that appear to be resistance
or shame or darkness of the worst kind,
these things are simply love waiting to be aware of itself.

This illusion of duality – of love and non-love
is simply the game humans create
of remembering (like the children’s game of “peek-a-boo”).

So remember,
when you feel contraction,
and all of the things the mind would say are NOT love…

simply remember
that it’s your move in the game
and the remembering,
the discovery is joy.

Dance with the feelings.
Dance with the illusion,
and remember
that ALL is love.

Ah-hah! There you are!

Pure Joy

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Bliss, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on Pure Joy

No place to go
nothing to get

landing in a deeper way –

pure joy

instead of an occasional state, it’s becoming the majority of experience

hear the words
feel the words

continue to unravel
nothing to acquire

letting go is all that remains
releasing through my body . . .


it’s tangible how tension is  just a pattern

there’s no reality to it – just a wound-up-ness
and as I unwind

…all that’s left is joy.

Pain in Awakening

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on Pain in Awakening

As more energy courses through your body (and particularly spine), you are noticing some kinks.

The pain is felt because of the pressure of increased flow.
There is also an imbalance in the muscular system that pulls the spine out of alignment ongoingly.

There are emotional energies at the core of these imbalances, but there is no need to analyze or dwell on this. Strengthening your abdominal muscles will allow the lower back to open and shifting the head directly over the shoulders will allow the remaining tension in the head, neck and shoulders to release.

Any emotional imprint that needs to be released will make itself known in the moment.

You are learning the balance of increased energy flow and opening/allowing that flow. It is very much a yin/yang, feminine/masculine physical/spiritual dance in your consciousness.

Enjoy the dance. Enjoy the unraveling of the kinks.

It will be an energizing process!

Guidance for this week:

Let go.

Let go to God.

In the last few days, you have felt some slipping into the old patterns of fear.

Not completely, but as we remind you of this, you can feel what we mean. The subtle familiarity of guilt, shame, unworthiness, separation.

Like a rut in a dirt road that gravity pulls you into. You know this is not a big deal. It is just something to be aware of during the awakening process and we rejoice that you are feeling the pull and recognizing it early, which naturally lifts you out of the pattern.

You are gradually, inexorably merging with us.

With all that is.
With your true nature.
Your higher self.
The I Am Presence.

It does not matter what name is used.

You know this in your heart and are welcoming the opening into Oneness.

The heart of God is in you – always lighting the way.

All is Well

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on All is Well

ALL is well.

You are having the experience of being connected with God as your natural state.

You are now living in what you ARE (infinite fullness), rather than trying to be what you are not (limited self).

All that time you thought you were unworthiness trying to be or ‘get to’ what you were not (Divine) and it turns out that all along you were Divinity pretending to be unworthiness and limitation.

Now there’s the joke!

Coming from the place of pure being you can see that most humans are experiencing life upside down and backwards.

As this state becomes more and more grounded in your experience you will be able to see the places in others where they are pretending to be something other than their true selves.

And you will have the clarity to not believe that ‘act’ for a minute.

You have landed in the Truth my dear, and the illusion will not have the same hold on you again, even if you forget briefly from time-to-time.

THIS is what Freedom feels like.
THIS is what Freedom is.

Everything looks different now, doesn’t it?

Most of the past has been shed and the Light is streaming through you more easily now.
You won’t even remember who you thought you were, except for reminders from people who are living the patterns that used to bind you.

This is as it should be.
You will feel compassion for their suffering and see that suffering as a long-forgotten memory.

Even the belief that to connect with a person you needed to vibrate in the same way is disappearing.
Simply being where you are and feeling what you feel in your heart of hearts is enough.

There is no need to analyze, sympathize, explain or even to teach, although those things may happen while you are connected to your heart.

Being is all there is to be.

In being, ALL is accomplished.

Now isn’t this fun?!

About Overwhelm

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on About Overwhelm

Asking guidance about all that wants to be accomplished and the feeling of pressure and overwhelm.

455It doesn’t really matter what you create in which order.

There is no one right sequence to live your life.

Everything is connected. Everything is interrelated.
It is all bringing you home.

The pressure you feel is simply an attachment to a belief in lack.
An attachment to ‘not enough’ whether it be time, money, resources, love
(specifically related to you).

You can see the abundance of all as a general truth, but don’t deeply know it
totally applies to you. In truth it has nothing to do with ‘you’ personally,
it is simply the core experience of unworthiness
that is the very foundation of the illusion of separation.

When you feel the slightest contraction of fear, look inside for that
core feeling and you will soon unravel it’s hold on you.

It is the very seed of separation.
Without the thought “I am not that” you could never
keep up the play that you are anything but God.

You are on the earth as an artist to play and create using the physical
world as your medium. We are delighted to see what you come up with.
The possibilities are endless. The materials, the process and the result is
all God expressed….as you.

We cannot hold any limitation for you.
Whether you do this or that is your choice.

The experience you have chosen is that of Life,
with all its “this’s and that’s.”

From our view it is not only possible to be in
joy/love during ALL of it, the experience of life is literally MADE of

It takes large amounts of resistance to experience anything else.

Do what feels best. Do what calls your heart. When it comes to
experiences, you can truly ‘have it all” one experience and one moment at a time.

It is only the ego that says things ‘should’ be one way or another.
This is a way of holding onto the illusion that “you” are in control of reality
and it would strip the joy from life in exchange for an apparent
position of power.

Waking up means no longer being fooled by this. The ego will continue to play its part,
but you are no longer “buying it.”

What you create and when is for you to explore and express.
Of course we have a view of no time and we do have great compassion for your
experience of linear reality, but we also know it is not real and we are
here to remind you that there is infinite supply in all dimensions.

Yes, for YOU too.
How could it be otherwise?
Oneness includes EVERY One.

We are One in all things.

Growing up, growing down

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, Messages from Spirit, Support Comments Off on Growing up, growing down

210012_3998680764532_973027622_oI am finally grounded

I’ve been on this earth long enough
That I feel deeply connected to it

I see the beauty in all that is physical.
Even the part of the picture that is messy.
The rotting, the pain and the death.

I understand how brief
our time is here
and because I also understand the Eternal

I appreciate form from a larger view.

I’m grounded in my purpose
I know that no one can prevent me from living my own life
no one can prevent me from giving my own gifts

…except me.

I just felt an old fear

“But, is there room for me?”

With all the infinite possibilities and numbers of people
is there room for me?

The way I can know if there’s room for me is that
I’m here.

I’m here and there’s space around me
so there must be room for me.

I see that much of my reluctance to be grounded was from the doubt
that there was room for me in the world.

So by touching the ground lightly
Not claiming the physical
I seemed to take up less space on this earth

So now I have a footprint
What a relief!

An appropriate sized footprint

I don’t misuse resources
But I do use resources and I also create resources

I have a conscious and loving relationship with my physical world
I have a conscious and loving relationship with my body

Every day I feel the earth feeding me
and I feel myself as part of that cycle.

I also feed the earth

I give myself full permission
to enjoy this whole experience of matter

I love to play with clay and sand
to touch it, to come back to a very basic playful relationship with earth.

For those times when fear comes around I can say

“Just look at your history”

Look at the big truth and ask
“Have you ever really been without?”

When I do that I feel the calm of the word “NO”

I’ve never been without – really
Although it may have seemed that way

Ask in this moment,
“Do you have everything you really need?”

The answer is always YES.

Look at the past

Look at the present

Look to the future

Why would you be afraid there won’t be enough for you when there always has been enough, really.

(thinking of a time when the story of fear seemed real)

I can see myself in my room as a child
There’s a feeling of
loneliness, emptiness, heaviness

there’s clutter everywhere
there’s a feeling that if I disappeared
nobody would notice or care
that it would actually be easier on the whole family if I were to disappear

…and even from that place, I can also feel
my truer self.

I can feel her waiting and watching
and getting fed by the invisible world
and the world of nature
the world of stories
the miniature world.

The story that nobody would care was drama
that gave me the fantasy, the hope that someone would indeed care

part of me knew that they would notice
that was the root of the suicidal fantasies

That they would discover my broken body

“Oh no!”

And they would be in despair and guilt and torment,
“Why didn’t we notice!?”

That gave me the excuse to blame them

“It’s all their fault”

The Truth was I could have come out more.
I could have asked for more. I would have survived.
There were risks, but I could have asked.

What I understand now is that it’s time to let go of that story.
Forgive them, forgive myself and move on.

Grow up.

I can feel a part of me has been holding out for a parent to come along

and “grow me up.”

But that’s not the way it works. We grow ourselves up.

I’ve believed that by staying helpless in some ways (while appearing mature in others) eventually someone would parent me in the ways I wasn’t parented.

And I see that as I grow up
my son is free to grow up too.

I See You

By Sylvia Nibley Awakening, I See You, Messages from Spirit Comments Off on I See You

Remember that who you really are loves to be seen.

Take it in. Breathe it in.

What do you get when you are truly seen?

You get divine light.

It comes through the eyes of everyone who sees you.

That’s what we give each other.

We give ourselves the light

when we see each other.

It’s so much more than the ego’s needs.

It doesn’t stop there.

It’s like a ricochet that goes on and on and on, brightening the world.

It’s God recognizing ourselves.
