Led by Gil and Natalie Dekel, Reiki Masters/Teachers, on Friday 21 Nov 2014, 9.00pm GMT (livestream #18).
Why people are here? – What can we do to calm the mind? How to stop ‘leaking out’ energy? What is the Well of Stillness?.. These questions and others are answered in this channeling session.
Gil: Hello, as you can see, Natalie has her eyes closed as she’s already in a state of meditation: channeling higher wisdom, the higher self. We find that it easier when Natalie closes her eyes while we channel. I usually channel the ‘space’ around us.
First we will answer the question: why we’re here? Why human-beings are here on the planet, what’s the purpose?
Natalie: We have such busy lives. We are constantly running after one thing or another trying to achieve so many things… and yet it seems endless, isn’t it?
To answer this question we need to understand that the human body is a vehicle, an opportunity for life to live itself through it. So when we think we live our lives, in reality, life lives us, through the body. It lives through your heart. You do not beat your heart, it beats for you; you only observe it…
The same thing with your lungs. You do not expand and contract them consciously. You can control it of course, but the force behind the technicality, the energy that flows through your body, the one that you can observe indicates that for all purposes life lives you; you’re merely an observer of what is happening.
When you start to think about it from that perspective, your understanding of life is changing. You no longer live your life in terms of limited pursuit of small, individual goals. It becomes more a matter of: ‘this is my light. How can I manifest it for the highest good? How can I live this life to the fullest potential?’
And this is when the awareness of yourself as a being of light, comes forward. Understanding that we’re beings of light is the first thing that’s important. And of course, honesty towards yourself. When you are being honest with yourself you can then say: ‘okay, I’ve had these experiences so I can manifest certain values, certain lessons.’
We don’t really learn here. We don’t come to earth to learn. We already knew that before we came; we come to manifest, to experience and spread the light; spread the energy that flows through you.
This particular energy that goes through you is unique to you. It’s individual expression of a supreme being, a universe, life, whatever you want to call it. And you have responsibility towards this uniqueness so you cannot live someone else’s life nor can you tell someone else how to live their life. Your responsibility is above all to your own light – to be this light, to manifest it, to find ways to expand it.
It’s not as selfish as some of you may think. On the contrary, by loving yourself, exploring your abilities, your talents, your light within, you affect many people, beings, nature, and your living breathing space around you by simply changing your thinking, simply being who you are. This is how it was meant to be.
Just as molecules do not concern themselves about is it selfish to be oxygen or hydrogen; rather they simply respond, react, absorb, and work in relations with other elements. And they create, continuously create. It’s a work of creation.
The small goals that you set in your life, when you use your mind as the only source of your being, such as: go to university, get a better-paid job; these goals are not long-term manifestations of your being. It’s one small aspect that can be easily changed one way or another, depending on what you’re trying to manifest. You are an organic living entity of light.
Gil: If we are organic and can change, why do we come here at all? Why bother?
Natalie: Because this is the ultimate laboratory for experiencing such a way of living. Each one is unique to that particular environment. So your environment is unique to you and to your abilities.
Gil: We have a few questions from the viewers. The first question: how can I get rid of chronic fatigue? What must I do to become free of this condition?
Natalie: Chronic fatigue is chronic tiredness of the condition in which you found yourself or perhaps have been in the past. Strong resistance to outward forces that make you feel helpless; stranded.
We all are beings of energy. If you are a body of energy, you cannot be losing energy or lacking energy, in truth. Think about the 2nd law of Newton, where energy doesn’t disappear. However, as physical beings, we can use our minds to ‘leak out’ energy which means that we are giving energy to concerns, people, and beings. This makes us feel that they are overpowering us or controlling us. This can cause chronic fatigue if it carries on for a long time.
The best way to release this condition is first to acknowledge; to focus on the self within. Look inside yourself. Take time every day for a few minutes to sit and observe your breathing, your being within. Find that stillness, that energy inside that is full to the brim with energy.
When you do that, train your mind not to jump to other thoughts, other people or places. Simply contain within yourself the energy by breathing. Contain yourself like a battery.
The more you practice it, the more you will feel that you have more and more energy afterwards. You can try to use the breath to increase the energy inside you. For example, if you allow the energy, the breath, to come into your heart, hold it for a moment and then push it all the way down to the base chakra at the bottom of your being. Release it strongly and then wait a minute, feel your body and allow it to fill your stomach, and then breathe it out in short durations – a bit like yoga breathing. Several times… Take a deep breath, feel your heart and feel the energy in your body. Observe how you’re filling your body with energy, a bit like a battery recharging. You will feel more energetic and you will be able to stop your mind from leaking out energy.
Try to realize that nothing and no one has power over you, only you. You can control yourself, you can control your energy; you can be drawing energy from anyone and anything. You can choose not to leak it out. It is in your power.
Gil: One of the challenges is how to stop the mind from constantly chattering…
Natalie: Focus on the breathing. Focusing on that alone, breathing and feeling the energy in whatever space you can call it. You can visualize a colour or a sound, or anything to stop the mind.
Gil: We have a technique to ‘work’ together with the mind, when the mind keeps running non-stop (‘The Pause’ click here).
Another question from a viewer: What is the best decision for me; to continue or stop my current romantic relationship?
Natalie: You are made of energy, the energy that has no time, and that has been here for thousands and millions of years. What you need to do is be still for a moment. Visualize a pool of stillness inside you and then imagine that you’re going to drop the subject into that well of stillness. If, for example, you want to stay in the relationship, then ‘drop’ that subject into that pool and see what the energy feels like, the feeling that comes from it. If this feeling you’re getting is ‘no, I don’t like it. It doesn’t feel right’ then the answer is no. If it feels right, calm, happy feeling, the answer is yes. If you can’t hear the answer, do it again… and listen to yourself, listen to your body. You have all the answers already. You simply need to listen.
Gil: Some people ask specific question, as in: should I do this or that?… but we don’t give a definite answer. Instead, we’re giving them tools to find the answers within them.
Natalie: Yes. Everything you do in life is correct. There are no mistakes. Even the experience that you think was a mistake, you look back and you will realize that it has brought you to where you are now, and it has given you strength and the tools to deal with what is coming next.
You are guided by so many guides, family, loved ones. You are supported. And the time when you don’t feel it is when you’re supported most because you’re so in your mind you stop feeling it.
Listen to your heart. If something comes from your heart, you will know that it’s the right one.
Gil: The next question is about a community center. She’s asking where specifically the land will be for the community centre, when will it happen and what advice she needs?
Natalie: You are building up a process stage by stage. It all depends on the chemistry and relationships you create with people along the way. It is possible that with one person who will invest in your project, you will find everything you need.
I would say you need to seek legal advice. Look also for support groups that may help and work together with you. You will know that you are guided, and in your heart you already feel exactly why you’re not there yet, so try to be patient and honest. It will come at the right time for you. There are quite a lot of people, beings, animals involved and it’s important to do it at the right time and you know that so patience, my love.
Gil: The next question: what can you tell me about the soul connection between me and my mother before incarnating?
Natalie: All the people you know in this lifetime are those you’ve been in various relationships before, in different roles throughout different lifetimes. Your relationship with your mother is not just one life time.
At the moment, you’re exploring issues of responsibility and forgiveness. There’s also an issue of balance and power. You are both strong individuals, very strongly believing in what is right, and the need is to work together with these beliefs, finding a way of working in a flexible way around each other, with each other.
If you see her perspective (whatever the ‘her’ is, either side of that relationship) – see if from another pair of shoes, so to speak. Step into her shoes and feel what she thinks. At the end of the day, you both want the same things, using different words and from different perspectives.
This is the main aspect of your relationship this lifetime. The most significant influence on your current life is the other life in northwest America – what you can say now is Native Americans.
The choice of mother-daughter relationship is about trust and knowing that at the end you’re there to be with each other. The intrinsic being linked from body and genes at this lifetime helps you to release some of the tension and then acquire new situations. It’s all part of forgiveness and of acquiring trust.
Gil: The last question is from a lady who met someone 6 months ago, someone who she dearly loves but he has to go back to the United States and wants her to join him. She loves him, but doesn’t want to leave her children behind, even though they are grown and independent.
Natalie: The question here is not the children as such but rather: what is it that you fear of? When we need to make a major decision that takes us outside our comfort zone, we can say that it is because of this or that. But the real question is: is it fear speaking; fear because you don’t want to move into the new? Because you don’t want to be hurt again? Don’t want to be abandoned? You want to have a backup, to stay in a familiar environment?
Again, I would recommend to sit down quietly so you can concentrate just on being and breathing, and then imagine this well of pure stillness… and visualize yourself going to live in America. This method can be used for any subject, whether it about stress, or a centre you want to build, relationship or anything else; even a bill you need to pay.
So, you drop the subject into that stillness and feel as if you’ve already done it. How does it feel? You’re with the person in the new place. If it feels right then it’s okay. Even if it feels neutral, hopeful, or something positive perhaps; you’re not quite sure? It’s still all right.
If you put it inside the stillness and it feels ‘hmm…I feel contraction of the muscles, some kind of resistance’ or a strong negative response – then it’s not right for you. You’re not responding because of fear, it’s definitely not the right thing.
No one outside of you can tell that, as you already know the answer and you already probably made your decision.
Now, the question is also about being honest. If you don’t want to lose the relationship, it’s important to be honest and explain it to your partner. If you feel that this is the answer, then speak about it. There are many different choices that can be made, different decisions, and different solutions to any single situation. There’s no such thing as hopeless situation.
On every situation you are in there would be another solution you didn’t think about.
So I encourage everyone to first listen to that inner space in you. Most of you already know the answers; just as if I would offer you a certain food, say, Italian food. Some of you would say, ‘Yay, I love it.’ Others would say, ‘Oh no, not for me.’ You will know immediately…
It’s the same with everything else in life. You know the answers. Your body is the barometer of your soul. You were here for thousands of years and the awareness is rising, the energy is rising. You all feel this division between the physical and the spiritual realms getting thinner. It is time to take your power in your hands and remember who you are. Remember that you have tremendous powers. You have tremendous influences.
Many of you can even affect the weather without knowing it just by the thoughts, the energy you exude outwards. If you feel turbulent, if you feel upset for a long time, it won’t be surprising if you will find that the weather reflects that kind of situation, or that a political event in the area also reflects that.
Listen to your beings, and take in your own powers. You are more powerful than you can imagine. I wish you all the best. I will always love and support you wherever you are at any moment of your life, at any time. You are never ever alone.
Gil: Thank you very much. You can find some healing resources for you on PoeticMind.co.uk/wellbeing. We shall see you on our next livestream channeling session.
