You are made out of the essence of One. You are the essence of intergalactics. You are the essence of angels. You are the essence of Gaia. How could you possibly not love yourself? Take time to nourish, to touch, to taste, to smell, to listen to your body, to your beloved physical, magnificent, rich body…

Good morning and welcome to another offering of Heavenly Blessings with Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love and author of The New You: Emerging Into The Brilliance of Humanity’s Heart Consciousness and myself, Suzanne Maresca.

Today we will be continuing this most fascinating of discussions with another member of the Council of Love, our Beloved St. Germaine! Having had many lives in human form on Earth, St. Germaine can offer a direct experience and perspective on the power and potential inherent in our physical bodies, not to mention the joy!

Many of us have been living under the misconception that our bodies and anything that makes us feel good are somehow shameful and wrong. We’re growing to understand that if we intend to raise our frequency high enough to anchor in higher dimensions we need to clear any and all false grids and beliefs about who we are.

I am so looking forward to hearing what St. Germaine has to say on this topic and I can’t think of a more appropriate guide for this phase of our journey.

And may I, from the whole InLight Radio Team, wish you, Linda, a happy 40th birthday and a delightful good morning!

LD: (Laughing) Yeah, good morning and thank you, thank you, thank you! Yeah, you know I think of birthdays as sort of a day where I get to express gratitude! I am like, ‘I am so happy to be alive’ and you know, this in many ways is the most challenging and you know, the best of times, the worst of times.

I am so glad that the people who surround me, my InLight family, my Golden Age of Gaia family, my Council of Love soul family, my soul circle, my biological family, my beloved husband, and all our listeners, I just feel such gratitude that you’re with me, that we’re doing this together. So, from my heart to yours, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

SM: Beautiful, beautiful. Well, we have a nice sunny, cold day up here in New Jersey. It froze overnight, winter’s here.

LD: Well, I want to tell you it’s cold and rainy in good ‘ole sunny Florida as well. But, as you all know, or maybe you don’t know, we have been doing, we did on Saturday afternoon, a meditation for healing of the drought in California and the healing and elimination of lack and limitation, of those old belief systems because Archangel Gabrielle and St. Germaine has told us that these are just false grids and that the people of California and the people of Earth have taken the opportunity to heal drought because that’s a lack of water, that’s a lack of Gaia’s lifeblood. So the whole intent of this meditation that was spearheaded by our soul sister Kathleen Willis, is to bring an end to the drought.

So, I’ve been watching (laughing) very closely the weather forecasts in California! So, when I got up this morning, that was one of the first things we do, Isaac and I do, and it was raining in San Diego!

SM: Oh wow!

LD: … yes, and it’s forecasted to rain most of the week. Los Angeles has a forecast for rain starting tomorrow and going for the whole week. It’s been raining and snowing in LakeTahoe, San Francisco, so I think our efforts and our coming together is really having a huge impact.

So, I would strongly ask and urge all our listeners to keep doing the meditation with Archangel Uriel. It is posted both on the Council of Love site and on the Golden Age of Gaia site and on you tube, to keep doing the meditation for rain.

We want to bring rain not only to California, but to India, to Asia, to the Middle East, to Australia because drought has been a world wide issue. So, it’s encouraging and it’s us. It’s us stepping forward as Nova Beings, as the New You. So, let’s go for it!

SM: Yeah, let’s go for it. Alright, power of prayer and group energy and you know, like we can do anything, really!

LD: We can do anything and I think that’s what the Council is showing us; by using the Universal Laws, which we have been drumming home week after week after week (laughing), using the Universal Laws, using our own creative power, that we can affect change!

Now, I want to say one thing. I had a listener write in and say, “Why aren’t you doing a meditation for world peace?” So, I wanted to remind our listeners that every Sunday night at nine o’clock wherever you are, if you just tune in, we do a meditation for world peace. If you want more information on that it’s also on the Council of Love website. It’s not that we’re looking at drought and ignoring other really substantial issues, we’re not.

SM: Right. Okay, well for myself, I have a cold for one thing, and I try not to….

LD: I can hear it!

SM: (Laughing) I may have to excuse myself to sneeze or whatever, but I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed with my life lately. But last night I got that how much we get done isn’t really what matters, it’s about how we feel about what we’re doing that’s important right now, it’s about how we’re feeling and we really need to focus on that. If we’re doing something that makes us feel miserable then by all means quit doing it. Go onto something else.

LD: You know, Archangel Gabrielle has said to us many times, and so has Universal Mother Mary, if it doesn’t feel like love, if it doesn’t feel like joy, then stop doing it. It’s just that simple. Change, redirect, re-invent.

SM: Let go of the fear.

LD: … let go of the fear and find something that does bring you joy because, let’s face it, life really is too short. You know, this life, this incarnation is just like a tiny blip on the radar screen! Sometimes we talk about, you know, how long things are taking and how elongated events are, but in fact, in terms of the universe, our life, our span of life is just a little blip.

So, it’s way too short to do anything other than what brings us joy! Now I know that sometimes we’re not getting our joy, like right in the minute. You know, if I’m cleaning the toilet that may or may not be a joyful task, but having a clean bathroom really does give me great pleasure… (Laughing)

SM: Absolutely true. True, true, true, so true!

LD: I have this feeling that if your bathroom isn’t clean then your house isn’t clean. Of course you know that’s neurotic isn’t it (laughing)! But it gives us joy, so it’s not just joy in the bigger sense. it’s joy in the little things as well.

SM: Exactly, exactly. That’s what I’m saying ‘it’s not how much we get done’ because certainly, I walk around my house or get on the computer and there’s a million things that I could be doing, should be doing etc. I need to, well for one thing, I need to break it up into little bits so that I can handle it one at a time. If I’m looking at the big picture it’s too much and I don’t want to do any of it.

LD: (Laughing) It’s overwhelming and we don’t want to forget that we’ve been told that we’re in this period and it hasn’t ended yet, of inertia and that was a redefinition even of the word inertia. So many of us are feeling that sense of overwhelm and I don’t really feel like tackling anything. So, step back, be the observer, take the appropriate action as you, I want to say absolutely need to, but know that you’re in this phase of gathering your strength for the next big push and I firmly believe that that next big push is all of us, together, going through the Ascension portal.

SM: Yeah and not only is it okay to do something nice for yourself, it’s kind of vital actually.

LD: It’s required and I think St. Germaine is going to talk about that.

SM: Awesome. Alright.

LD: Alright, enough of this chit chat girls. (Laughing))

So, sink in to your chair, to the floor, to your bed, to your office chair, wherever you are. Just thank yourself for being alive and thank yourself for being that important person in so many other people’s lives and not just because you cook or clean or earn money or serve people day in and day out.

Take a minute and just feel how many people, seen and unseen, above and below, love you and value you and do know and see you for who you really are ~ not just as the saint or the sinner or the provider, but for who you really are.

Now relax your shoulders, relax your legs, I see a lot of tense legs out there, your jaw and feel as if you are floating like mist on a silver lake, down into your heart, down into your core and let’s begin by taking a nice deep breath of that beautiful fiery violet ray, that ray of brilliant purple tinged with shades of magenta and red and blue. And feel that violet flame coming down from your crown like a laser light, like a beam of light directly into your heart and feel it igniting the violet flame within your heart, overlighting your sweet tri-flame. And breathe violet, woodland violets, chrysanthemums, a good red wine…and breathe.

Feel that laser beam continue down from your heart, through your solar plexus and halion, your umbilical, your tummy, right down into your root, shooting out and down into the heart of Gaia, up into the heart of Gaia and feel it shoot from the heart of Gaia right up to the heart of One, creating a perfect circle of what you are an integral and infinite part.

So, feel that beam, that beautiful bright beam of violet light, iridescent, coming down again from the heart of One, through your crown, through your head, your throat, into your heart, down through your lower chakras, down through Gaia, up through Gaia, back to One and feel that circle and let it flow. And be that light, be that love.

St. Germaine: Greetings, I am St. Germaine.

SM: Welcome.

St.G: And, welcome to all of you! Welcome to all of you my beloved friends, and yes, I am quite aware that red wine is not quite of the violet ray, but because I enjoy it so much I wish to include it, that all of you could taste the sweetness of the bounty that Gaia has to offer, whether it is grape juice or the richest claret. It is about awakening your senses. It is about tasting the richness and the fruits and the bounty of Gaia. It is about allowing yourself to enjoy being human.

Now this comes from me and I have walked the Earth many, many, many times, and yes, there is a part of me that says I will never return to Gaia until all the pettiness, the cruelty, the venom is healed. I got so sick and tired of hearing people say, “Well that’s part of life!” It is such an incorrect notion, belief system, paradigm. It is the destroyer of joy. It is the limitless ability to be in joy that is the birthright of being human.

Do you really think that the Mother and Gaia herself, who volunteered to become a planet and then said, “Well, what this planet is going to be like is it is going to be a place of such duality that humans will learn misery?” Well, I for one would never have come!

Now have I experienced lack and limitation, misery and happiness, delusion, illusion, disappointment? Yes. And did I get past it, did I learn as man? We are not talking, and I do not come simply as Ascended Master of the I AM Presence this day, I come as your brother, as a fellow traveler and as a being who has been a man and who has learned the truth; that the journey of being in form, in these magnificent forms called bodies, is intended and can be a phenomenal walk of liberation, of freedom and of joy.

Now, does it take a little work sometimes? Let me emphasize, sometimes. But, that is the point of claiming all of your joy, all of your freedom. And let me be very clear, when I talk about freedom I am not talking about taking liberties…although I wish you’d take a few more…but I am not talking about inappropriate behavior and not being considerate and kind to others. Quite the contrary! Nothing gives greater joy than sharing love. It is the entire purpose of being in form. You can talk all you want and expand your understanding of the function of your mental body, your emotional body, your seal of Solomon, your causal body, your astral body, but if you aren’t claiming and being in the fullness of your physical body, my friends you are missing the point.

I know, because I, like you, spent many, many decades, and in some situations, hundreds of years trying to prove myself to myself and to others, that I was saintly. St. Germaine is a name, not a blessing. I thought if I could purify and purify and purify and negate my physical whims and wishes, desires, that somehow I would earn the purity and that sense of detachment. Until I broke through and I came to understand, yes with a great deal of help from my friends, I came to the depth of knowing in my heart, in my solar plexus, in my stomach, to the soles of my feet, that it was not about denying the body, it was about embracing the body and allowing my physical form, and your physical form, to be the reflection , the embodiment of all the grace, the wonder, the healing, the blessings, the expansiveness of the Mother’s Love and the entire universe. That the universe was within me and without, outside, and that both were equally valuable and to be employed, demonstrated, enjoyed, enjoyed, enjoyed in physical form.

Now, often in speaking to you, my blessed family, yes, the channel speaks of her gratitude for this family, but so do I and so do I on behalf of many. You are our partners, you are our circle, you are our family. You are our allies, you are our cohorts and you are my friends.

So many times I have begun and I have said, “Come and sit and drink wine and break bread with me” as we have done so many times before. When we sat in the Temple of the Violet Flame in Atlantis and you became the healer priest, and priest was a secular term, and we broke bread and you rose like the phoenix out of the ashes of the old into the new, reborn, physical body, what do you think we did? Did I say to you, “Now, what you must do is stay in the temple and pray morning, noon and night; do not touch yourself (dog barking in background) or anything else…(This dog is vigorous!)…do not touch your body, do not touch the goblet of wine, do not touch the bread, do not touch anything, for it would be impure, and the last thing I would want you to do is enjoy a good meal with me”?

Of course not! I invited you to sit and share and to savor, not merely the foods, or the Meade, but the kinship, the friendship, each other and then to return, to go out into the world, whether it was on the islands of Atlantis, or the migrations to Egypt and then to the Middle East. I asked you to go and to spread the word, not merely of healing, but of living.

The purpose of any form of healing is that you may then re-engage in the joy of life. How does this begin? There has been a great deal of discussion about sacred union, about sacred partnership, but how do you even begin that if you do not have a love and a passion for your physical self, for the physical form, the personality, the ego, and yes, I know all about ego, if you’re not passionately involved in a love affair with your self? How, how do you ever engage, not only in sacred work, but in the human work, person to person to person, lover to lover, friend to friend, daughter to mother, mother to son, father to grandfather, how do you ever engage in a truly meaningful way if you are not first and foremost engaged with yourself? If you are not being honest and truthful and having explored the territory of your own being, how do you begin? Well you can’t! Or you can’t fully, not in the measure of love and joy that I am talking of this day.

So, let me be frank! Do you know your body? Yes, Jeshua has talked about knowing the truth of your heart and your soul, but I add to this this day, and I say, know the truth of your body! I am not merely talking about intimacy and orgasm and sexual encounter, although that is critical; if you do not know what pleases you physically, how can you share and even be interested in knowing what pleases your beloved, physically?

The human body is the form, the gift that you, your guides, and some of us, have talked about and negotiated. But you had the final say about what this body looks, feels, tastes, smells and how it performs. So then why would you come and then proceed to think that your body is something disdainful, something to be ignored or whipped into shape or subdued so that you could go forward? That is right back to those who, out of a sense of entitlement, try to control you and that, my sweet angels, is not permissible. Your body is the angelic form, in form.

If you do not think that on this side, that we do not live in an almost continuous state of ecstasy, then you have misunderstood what it means to be ascended, what it means to be angelic. We do not go into the morass of pain and suffering. Do we witness it and are there times when even the beloved Mother is sad? Yes, but that is not the state of being. It is an observation about the mess that has been created by these false illusions.

So, can we start today, in this new day, talking about loving your body, your fingernails, your hands, your chin, your nose, your eyes, your belly button, your sexual parts, your toes, your knees? Can we talk about how grateful you are to be able to walk, because there are many on the planet, for reasons of teaching compassion, who can’t walk! Do you open your eyes and say, “I am so lucky to be able to see”? No, what I hear from you is, “How come my third and fourth eye isn’t open? How come I cannot see you?”

Well, let me tell you my friends, one of the reasons is that we want you first to see and to embrace the beauty of you, of who you are, of those around you, the beauty of Gaia, to taste the air and the sweetness of the water. In doing that, you open your third and fourth eye, you open your neural pathways to hearing by listening for the sound of the bees, the birds, the footsteps of the rabbits and the deer, even the human footsteps in the thick of New York City or Bombay.

Use your senses, explore your body. This is something else, too often you do not touch, and again I do not merely mean sexual touching, but you do not touch yourself. You do not touch your arm and feel the texture of your skin. You do not touch your belly, the place where you hold so much birthing energy. It does not matter whether you are male of female, you’ve been all, you’ve been both. There is not one being upon the planet that has not been homosexual, lesbian, bi-sexual, or heterosexual. Those are simply choices and each is glorious because each presents a different opportunity to explore unity and sacred partnership. But, you don’t touch yourself enough!

I see you touch your belly and you say, “Oh good, it’s flat, oh good it’s hard, oh good I don’t have jelly belly”. Or you say the critical, “Oh no, I have a muffin top, oh no, there’s a layer of fat.” You don’t simply put your hands on your belly and say “Thank you, thank you for accepting the food that I feed you, thank you for letting me know, not only when I am spiritually hungry, but when I am physically hungry so that I can engage in union with Gaia”, for it is Gaia who feeds you, it is Gaia who quenches your thirst. So I am eager to talk about intimacy in every form. So yes, I am inviting myself back Suzanne, but let us begin with your sacred self. Now, having said that, dearest Suzanne, where do you wish to begin?

SM: Ah, you are always so welcome to come back any time you want. It’s wonderful to have your perspective on this topic of enjoying our physical reality and thank you for joining us.

Okay, so this next one is kind of, well I’ll just launch into it. There’s been so much discussion around the return of the divine feminine, that it feels of equal importance to understand the expanding role of the masculine in our unfolding consciousness. I have a lot of compassion for men these days because the messages of ‘how to be a good man’ vary wildly. We value sensitivity and open communication, but being too sensitive can be seen as weakness and there’s also a danger of sharing too much and having the meaning of what you’re sharing be misconstrued. Gender is, in itself, a dualistic fact of our lives. As we expand in the unity consciousness, how will the roles of gender shift?

St.G: There is no such thing as being too sensitive, there is no such thing as being too tender or too kind. Now when I have lived in Europe, I have been outrageous! And I chose in a social setting often to be outrageous in order to break through what peoples conceptions were of these very roles of male and female.

Yes, it is the return of the divine feminine, but it is the return of the divine feminine to every person and being on the planet, including every man, who too often, because of the old… and we see this in every culture… because of the old acculturation, that the male has been slotted into certain roles. Now that has broken down enormously so that the protector, hunter, warrior, stoic male is becoming more balanced.

But let us also say, that in that return of the divine feminine, inside of that or alongside of it, but really within, but you can conceive of it how you want, is the true nature of the divine masculine. Too often the male face of the divine has been seen as thundering, punishing, stoic, warrior like. And I know, I have done it! But why would there be a need for such delineation? You have called it duality and yes, there are two genders…well there really aren’t, but that is the concept so you are seeing it. Now the feminine, from my perspective is the lucky one because you get to carry the child. You get to bring the energy right into you and carry it and nurture it. So let’s face it, you get a head start.

SM: (Laughing)!

St.G: But, it doesn’t happen without the male. And now we aren’t talking about a sperm donor, we are talking about truly this sacred coming together, which is actually very much a group process, to come together to create life. So, it has never been one or the other. But because of many of the old roles that men were forced or socialized into, and certainly by many mainstream religions, is that they were absent from that real joy of creation.

Now you are seeing a shift and a dramatic shift, more than ever before upon planet of men allowing their sensitive nature and the importance, not just in terms of lineage or bragging rights, but the care and nurturing they are giving their children, the fullness of that partnership called family. Men are having a hard time.

SM: Yeah..

St.G: Often, when I would attend a function, in your terms think of it as a large dinner party, and I would manifest various beautiful stones for the fun of it…given the crowd, it was what they wanted ~ diamonds, sapphires, rubies. Nevertheless, I would manifest them for the sheer pleasure of it and to show how manifestation takes place. Now I have to admit that also made me a great hit with the ladies!

SM: (Laughing)!

St.G: But often when I would manifest such a stone, I would cry. In the middle of an auspicious gathering, one minute I would be laughing and joking and being outrageous and the next minute I would cry. And so many would look at me and say, “Have you had too much wine? What is the problem, has your mistress left you yet again, huh?”

SM: (Laughing)

St.G: I would say, “No, I am crying because of the beauty of this stone.” This is what I did with the stones really, and I would hold it and they would look at it, at the depth of the blue in the sapphire, or the purity or the fire of the diamond, and people would see and they would be brought to tears because they had forgotten the meaning of beauty. And then I would give it away and I would say, “But now, look at the beauty of this one” and it was not always a woman, often it was a fellow man. And from the beauty of the gem we would look at the person, and there was always great excitement to see who would be chosen, because it allowed them to truly be seen, not for their position or their wealth or their wit, but for who they really were and who they really are because so many of you that I am speaking to this day have been with me in Atlantis or France or the New World. So, it was to use the examples of physicality and it was also to use the example that it was all right for a man to give a man a beautiful gift and to be sensitive about it.

There is no such thing as caring too much. Now, because of the false grids and paradigms that have existed in your old 3rd, did that mean opening up your heart as an incredible risk taker to be hurt? Yes, but what is the alternative? There is none. Why would you wish to close yourself off? Can you imagine the loneliness? So, you take my advice and you spend the time to discover the beauty, the richness, the territory of your body, of your likes and dislikes, of your lust and I do not mean that in a sinful way, I mean what fires your passion. So you take the trouble to find all of this out and then you are not free to engage? Well that would be absurd!

So take the chance, it is worth it!

SM: Well, thank you for speaking to that. If I may ask maybe one more question. Could you please speak to the sexual energy as an avenue of alchemical transformation? Do you know what I mean by that?

St.G: Well I think I do! (Laughing).

SM: (Laughing) I think you do. Okay!

St.G: My dearest Suzanne I do believe you are talking about sex? Can you imagine such an outrageous topic for a spiritual undertaking program? I am happy to talk about it!

SM: Awesome! I know we’re a little crazy here!

St.G: Yes, finally there is nothing crazy about sexual sacred union. And I know because I have not been celibate. And I might say that one of the things, one of the elements or aspects that often kept me going and kept me on Earth was, in fact, the ability to engage in sexual sacred intimacy with others. And yes, I have had a selection of partners, as have all of you. Even if you believe that you have only been with one person in this lifetime, you have had a parade my friends, of partners over the many, many lifetimes.

So, forget this purity, monogamy, faithfulness issue. Faithfulness is a matter of the heart, but that is another discussion.

SM: Right.

St.G: When you join with another in the true bliss of sacred union and when you come to a place of mutuality and orgasm, that is very important, let me repeat this, it is mutuality, it is not simply one partner being satisfied, it is both.

Yes we know that sometimes there are mechanical difficulties, or that people have orgasm at a different moment, but the union in that alchemical moment is you returning, absolutely leaving your body and being fully in your body. It is the best example of bi-location that anyone can ever think of.

SM: Oh yes, good.

St.G: You are completely present and you are not present at all. You are the spark of light, the sheerest of energies, and you are so fully physical at the same moment. And in that alchemical moment, you are connecting, you are becoming the sheer energy and re-connecting, not merely with your divinity, but with THE Divinity. When I say that I have the honor to claim that I am master, not only of the Violet Flame, but of the I AM Presence, do you get there by deep meditation, by ritual, by prayer? Yes you can. But you also get there in that physical moment of orgasm, of truly letting go. Because, what you are doing is declaring your freedom. You are saying, “I am fully a physical being and I am nothing other than this spark and point of light!”

And it is in that moment…if you are co-creating, for example, with one you cherish, because I am not an advocate of casual sex because it is not rewarding. So to me, intimacy is a very intimate act. Now can it be achieved with a stranger? Yes, but that doesn’t matter, it is still an intimate act. But in that moment if you and your beloved are saying, “What we are creating”, you have created the intent: “We are creating a child, we are creating abundance, we are creating rain in California, we are creating an opening for people to see and hear and feel.” You would be amazed, and I use this all the time; in fact I never had sexual intercourse with a partner, male or female, that we did not discuss beforehand, the nature of what we were bringing forth.

SM: Wow.

St.G: So when you talk about it, it becomes woven into the physical intimacy and the sheer energy when you are completely out of your body. So you are anchoring it into the physical realm and you are creating it in the etheric realm as well.

It is a powerful, powerful tool that, because of this growth of control and lack, that you were taught to forget. Now the miracle of creating children was never forgotten. But the rest of it was placed not even on the stove…not even on the fire! So bring it back because this is a way in which you create directly with your I Am Presence, with their I Am Presence and with The I Am Presence.

So to say, “I am not having sex but I am a spiritual person so it doesn’t matter.” Well my friends, it does. And the moment of ecstasy starts with experiencing it yourself. Do not deny your physicality, all of it.

SM: Thank you, this has, I am weeping tears of joy right now, I am so happy about this it is exactly, exactly what I was hoping for, thank you, thank you. So you’ll come back again, huh?

St.G: I would love to come back again, because we have just scratched the surface.

SM: Perfect. Wonderful.

St.G: About the love of self, the claiming of your birthright of joy for your sacred self. But now I want to talk about, in the coming weeks, about the joy of joining with others. But in the meanwhile, if I can leave you with a thought… Take time to nourish, to touch, to taste, to smell, to listen to your body, to your beloved physical, magnificent, rich body. You are made out of the essence of One. You are the essence of intergalactics. You are the essence of angels. You are the essence of Gaia. How could you possibly not love yourself?

SM: (Sigh) Ah, wonderful. Thank you so much.

St.G: Go with my love, go with my beautiful amethyst gem, look at the beauty and then look at yourself my beloveds. Farewell.

SM: Farewell, thank you!
