Please enjoy this recording of our latest channeling evening, where St. Germain talks of the human misperceptions of enlightenment and how they are holding people back.
Dear ones, I address you today to give you the courage to keep going. I know that these are tough times on the planet. I know that many of you are struggling under the weight of your own dramas, baggage and emotions – let alone the rest of the planets. I know many of you ache in your bones. You wish to go home. You feel old in many ways – ancient. Many of you wonder why you came here at all.
I wish to give you this simple answer: because you hold the threads.
How many of you long for the old ways? How many of you wish for a simpler life, one that is in harmony with the cycles of nature and the stars? I know many of you long for the days of magick, even if it has been sold to you that it does not exist. You know it in your bones that it exists.
Many of you have walked this planet for lifetimes, you have lived and breathed a different way of being in the world. I know many say that the old ways are dead and that it is time to accept the new. That the old ways were burned out us a long time ago. This is not so.
The old ways do not die, they morph and grow. Yes it is a new energetic playground on the planet now and yes some of the old ways of magick do not work in the same way, but they are not gone. You came here to facilitate the change, you came here holding the threads of the old ways, to weave them into the new.
Take heart and allow the birth of a new era.

As we have become divorced from what it is to be directly in touch with our food production, or indeed the production of any of our resources, Lughnasadh can be a tricky holiday to fully relate to. Many will look to the aspect of the waning of the God or male aspect of the year, an honour and reverence for the changing of the seasons. For me in the climate I live in, an excitement settles in. The long relentless humid and hot days will begin to wane and with it comes the anticipation for the relief of cooler days.
However the idea of the harvest weighs heavily on me this year.
The last year has been one of both pulling weeds and sewing seeds (metaphorically) and as I look out over my field, I see that there is still another long year ahead of preparing the soil, weeding and planting. However, a great sense of accomplishment remains when I look at just how far I have come. And just how much I have learned in the space of a year. You could say in many ways, the last few years have been dedicated to my real education – not the one I learned in school or university. And this last year in particular has involved the application of my real education.
My real education has been one of unlearning. Unlearning behaviours that have been taught to us by society to be both acceptable and respectable, things that society was brainwashed by big corporations to aspire to. I have been unlearning consumerism and unraveling all the things that keep us chained to it.
Now what has this to do with the harvest? A lot actually. There was a point 2 years ago where I sat in my living room taking in everything in it. For the first time in my life I could say that truly, I had enough. My 20s had been a whirlwind of study and collecting things for my home and although my furniture is shabby in comparison to the photos in glossy magazines and on television, I had everything I needed. A fully stocked and functional kitchen, all the comforts and furnishings you’d expect in a living/dining area (minus a TV or “entertainment” unit). A wardrobe stuffed to the brim with clothing, a study complete with desk and shelves overflowing with books.
I remember sitting there feeling quite empty. Is this it? I was raised, like many of us are to go to school, get good grades, go on to do further study, find a job, make money and furnish a house (perhaps get married and have children too). You don’t really think too much on it when you are in the midst of excitement of gaining independence as an adult and studying for your future career.
Then you spend a few years on the treadmill, going to your job, making money, paying bills etc. I knew, as I looked around my living area that this was the point where I was meant to upgrade my student furniture. “So this is what life is? Working to upgrade my possessions until I retire?”. It wasn’t adding up.
Something was nagging at me. And it took a little while for it to settle in. A complete disconnection from creation. Who made my furniture? Where does my food come from (besides a vague “made in Australia”)? Who sewed my clothes? And while we are on that path, how is fabric even made? And the biggest question, why do I have none of these skills? Skills that would have been taken for granted only a century ago.
Then it drops in completely. I have been trained to consume, not create. I am completely and utterly reliant on a network of corporations and businesses. What happened to community? How can we actually appreciate the true abundance of the harvest when we have no idea where the harvest came from or what went into creating it?
And so as it goes, one must begin questioning. What have I been taught to “need” and what do I actually need? What can I create or learn to create? How can I support my local community? My future goals include learning permaculture, so then perhaps a Lughnasadh in the future, I can celebrate my own physical harvest. Mother Earth gifts us many things, perhaps this is a good time of year to put aside the incessant wants programmed into us and appreciate what we have.
My latest channel from St. Germain.
“I AM that I AM St. Germain in service.
It is so easy to forget presence when one is in the hustle and bustle of every day human life. And it is interesting to watch in these times, because not only are you dear ones, trying to navigate your human realm with all of its expectations and obligations, you are now being thrust into an entirely new way of being.
I am going to call this multidimensional living.
What is multidimensional living? Lets say perhaps, you are at your place of work and you are feeling very stressed for no particular reason. If you were to stop, take a breath and come back to the present moment, I think you will find that you are picking up something else. Perhaps another colleague, the general energy of your work environment or perhaps even the collective consciousness on the planet.
Now many call this being an “empath” but you will find in this time and particularly as your consciousness continues to grow, that you indeed will be walking an energetic mine field if you will. As you come to your awareness, you begin to pick up on the subtleties that lower vibrational living has no awareness of.
So now do you not only have your own thoughts and emotions to navigate in your every day human lives, you are now having to deal with everyone else’s thoughts and emotions. The energies of everything around you. This can be particularly exhausting, particularly when one does not quite understand what is going on. Often times a being will blame themselves and then do whatever they can to ameliorate it.
This may look like, more self help books, workshops, therapy or supplements and drugs to calm the emotions. When truly dear ones, this is unnecessary for most of you. And this is where the power of the present moment comes into play.
From now on, this is my challenge to you, when you are feeling overwhelmed by life or sensitive or feeling heightened emotions, stop. Take a breath. And ask yourself this question – is this mine? This is a powerful question to ask, because you will find that if it isn’t, it will lift. You will be surprised by the answers if you practice this regularly.
You are aware beings walking in a world in which there is no sense of energetic “etiquette”. There is still a lot of both energetic dumping and taking. Awareness is the key to stop doing that yourself and awareness is the key to not taking on others energy or giving yours away. There is a big difference between feeling energy and taking it on board and now is the time to start practicing this awareness.
In good faith,
I AM St. Germain”
This Earth realm you find yourselves in has so much more to it than meets the eye, it is so much more than what the mainstream has taught you it is. Go deeper. Scratch the surface. See the sacredness that is you, that is this planet and see how you are interconnected. You do not need to follow the formulas they told you to follow. And these formulas have many guises – spiritual, material, physical. It matters not. What is speaking to you on the deepest level? Let it envelope you.
Take that leap into infinity, take the divine breath, you are more than all of this. Breath. Open your true eyes and take a proper look. Now what do you see? Breathe. You do not have to buy into the falsities of this reality any more. Like the changing of a television channel, so too can you change the frequency in which you tune into. There are so many layers dear ones. What channel do you want to tune into? Breathe. Take the sacred breath. You are One.
I AM St. Germain”
I returned from camping for 5 nights at a festival yesterday. And although I can’t say I enjoyed the constant noise, stimulation and swarms of people of the festival, sleeping on mother earth and being outdoors 24/7 was another thing.
I arrived home to only feel bewildered and disorientated being in my house and the feeling hasn’t left me. The squareness of the walls and the distinct sense of being disconnected from the Earth. There is something missing in the soles of my feet.
I lay in bed last night feeling strange to be so high up off the ground and wishing I could crawl back inside my tent. And it made me wonder, is this why we as a collective are so ungrounded, so disconnected from the real world? The very homes we live in cutting off our connection to the Earth.
I’m not entirely sure where this is leading in regards to my life. However I feel this is a game changer and any idea I have had about when I eventually buy a home has flown out the window. I want to live outdoors.
It’s that time of the year and the summer solstice is once again upon us. This has always been a special time for me, as a kid the presence of the faeries was so tangible and there was magic in the air. As I got older and went through my phase of shutting down my intuitive abilities, I had put those feelings down to my imagination, because I had been so convincingly told that Father Christmas was coming.
I now know different. And once more that bubbly feeling of excitement comes to the surface, as I feel the veil thin and the faeries make their presence known.
This time of the year hasn’t all been excitement though. As the years go by, I feel ever increasingly dragged down by the expectations of Christmas. Voicing this opinion, has this year gotten me labelled as a “Grinch”. But when I look around, I see consumerism gone mad. I see and experience stressed people as they fight themselves and others to consume everything for the “perfect” Christmas (as prescribed by advertisers). And the more I see people consume unnecessarily, the more I weep for Mother Earth.
I will admit, this Solstice season has made me quite reflective in a number of ways. Beyond being a solitary druid at Christmas time and wishing I could skip Christmas and escape to the forest. I have been thinking on the wheel of the year and what it means for us in the southern hemisphere. In Australia, the wheel of the year looks a lot different to its traditional roots back in the UK. And then depending on where you are in Australia, it is different again.
Where I am, the Gold Coast, there aren’t 4 distinct seasons. It’s warm most of the year round and our winter would be laughable to a lot of people. When I often read about the wheel from a northern hemisphere perspective, I often see the summer solstice as a time of great warmth and celebration, a respite from the darkness that is winter, a celebration of the sun before the days once again get shorter.
When I see the summer solstice come around, I know the days are only going to get hotter, unbearably so. It is as if the male aspect of the year gains momentum and as much strength as possible, to only go out with a bang at Lughnasadh, with February being our hottest month.
Being in the subtropics, it is also a time of storms. My friend and I got caught in one of the biggest storms I have ever experienced while hiking at the O’reilly’s end of Lamington National Park last weekend. Day gave way to night, the heavy rain began and then marble and golf ball sized hail pummeled us. Upon exiting the forest, we got a spectacular display of lightening which was not visible through the canopy. It is these moments that humble you to nature. And it is this time of the year where Mother Nature will display her power.
I will admit, I have spent many a year pining away for cooler weather, fantasising about heavy coats and fireplaces. But there was something in that experience last weekend. Two days later found me floating in one of the creeks that connects to the Ocean. From my vantage point, I could see where the still water met the mouth of the ocean, the great crashing waves, the contrast. I felt the coolness of the water and the heat of the sun and watched as a school of tiny fish swam around me. I reflected on my time in the storm and realised how unique the land I find myself living on is.
She is harsh, yet beautiful and I am filled with gratitude to be here.
Living by the wheel of the year is so humbling. It connects you to the now and to the rawness and realness of where you are. It is not about following books, it’s about adapting to your unique landscape. And perhaps that is something for us in the southern hemisphere to reflect on this time of year, as we walk through shopping centres and malls decorated in a winter theme in the height of summer.

Today dear ones, I wish to speak to you about consciousness and the spiritual journey. There are so many distractions and pitfalls in regards to what is put under the umbrella of “spirituality” and one of those distractions has to do with the idea of having psychic abilities.
There are many beings out there who link psychic abilities to levels of consciousness and may I say, that it is time to separate them. There are many beings in this world with psychic abilities who are completely unconscious, who are no where near self realisation. And there are beings in this world who having no psychic abilities are enlightened. Self realisation has nothing to do with being able to see spirits or auras or what have you, it is the understanding that you are the All. And when you understand that you are God or the All, then you find that these abilities that you may have once strived for in themselves do not matter.
Now I am not degrading having these abilities nor saying that one should not develop their intuition, that is an inborn right lost in the tides of your modern world. However do not despair or feel that you are spiritually unevolved if you do not have these gifts.
I felt that this weight must be lifted from many beings shoulders and to also use this knowledge as a caution. Just because someone may be psychic or clairvoyant or whatever else it is they claim to be, does not mean they are conscious. You are your own guiding force and only you can bring yourselves to your enlightenment.

A link to an article that I wrote at the request of my tree friends who live down the road.
A channeling from St. Germain.
Today I wish to address one of the most common questions posed to me by awakening beings. And that is the grand question of – “what is the right path and formula to ascension/enlightenment?”
There is a distinct idea within spiritual circles that a being must act and look a certain way and perform certain tasks to be “spiritual”. That anyone deviates from these “norms” are doing it wrong and will not reach enlightenment or paradise or heaven or whatever it is you want to call it.
Dear ones, you do not perform acts to be “spiritual” beings, you are spiritual beings. No clothes, nor books, workshops, meditation practices, prayers, circles, yoga, sound healing, trinkets….oh I could go on…will make you “spiritual”. Do you not realise that whatever you do, be that “spiritual” or “non-spiritual” are all expressions of the divine, they are not the divine itself, nor are they a road map to the divine.
A being can torture themselves for years getting up at the crack of dawn, meditating in uncomfortable positions for hours on end, eating or not eating certain foods, wearing certain clothes, only participating in certain activities and get to the end of it and realise that those things are completely irrelevant to the realisation of the I AM.
That is why these practices were presented by the masters in the years of antiquity. They were a way to crack the being who would not look at themselves and see God. It was not the practices themselves that assisted a being in realising themselves, it was the frustration of getting no where that did.
A being could reach a point of complete frustration after years of following the formulas, throw up their arms and then in a moment of clarity realise the absurdity of everything they had just been doing – because it was them they were searching for all along.
You could realise yourself right now, if you let go of the game. There is no key and no path. Leave yourselves alone and enjoy life! Enjoy existence! And perhaps when you are ready you will one day laugh and say I AM.
