Flow 4-16: Take a Feather Walk with the guides
4-16 In which, the guides demonstrate how we can sense, feel and know their presence and they invite us to give it a try.
How will you know us? By your thoughts of us. By your feeling of us. By your sensing of us. By your knowing of us. For all of these things are your experience of us.
And yes, we have much to tell you today and we are supporting you now as you prepare to stream it. And we are drawing Amy’s attention to the fallen branch which she picked up while out-of-doors during a ‘feather walk’ – her name for an activity which we offer to train her (and you) into increased awareness of connection to/with us.
On a ‘feather walk’, named such because our symbol to Amy was a feather and for several years, whenever she would focus her attention with us and on us, we would lead her to a feather on the ground and in this way, she was like a child, following a game of hide and seek, and we were delighted to engage her and engage with her.
Sometimes, we would drop a feather from the sky and she would watch it spiral down toward her to fall in her lap or on her head or into her hand and she would know it was ‘for her.’ Other times, she would walk out-of-doors and after stepping in a rhythmic way for a while and breathing without pushing to be faster, without straining to see or feel anything in particular, she would begin, naturally and effortlessly, to fall into synchronization with us. And she would know, because she could feel and sense it, that we were near and that we were inviting her to play. And she would shift her listening – which she did without thinking about it or making much of an effort, by merely shifting it, by having the intention to shift it in our direction and to our frequency.
And Amy has drawn a line under this last phrase and told us that this may bear expansion. And so we will expand on this – but only for a moment because we trust that you will be able to do this if you come outside and give it a try.
So here is the expansion and the steps to follow to take a ‘feather walk’ with us.
Walk at your normal pace, without hurrying to achieve any number of miles or paces, without trying to achieve any particular result. Breathe normally, inhaling and exhaling, and noticing the coordination of your walking and your breathing and how this feather walk easily and naturally is bringing you into a state of calm and peacefulness.
Allow your attention to be drawn by the world around you and notice where it is drawn – and become curious about these things. And for now, resist the temptation (which will naturally arise) to ascribe meaning to the things that you notice.
Let your walking and breathing be the only goal and the holding of this calm and peaceful state. And if you find a feather or a coin, just notice that and if you’d like to pick it up, follow your instincts. Follow your own nature and let it guide you for you will know what to do.
And notice that you do know what to do. And notice where you hesitate and notice the tendency to add meaning to that. This hesitation does not mean anything. Keep moving, walking, breathing, noticing.
And this is a feather walk and we love to walk with you in this way for it opens your willingness to engage with us and to allow what is natural in you to come into relationship with what is natural in the world; and as you walk, we will guide you and walk with you in relationship to what is natural in us.
And we say that what is natural to us and in us is always the same. For our message/our intention does not falter – and never changes. We are love and we are here with you. And our intention is to hold you in love and to respond to you from love, as love.
Our message is our holding of the field of love inside of which all remain and will remain from the beginning of time until the end of time. And so it is and so it shall be, forever and ever in love.
This is Amy. The angels asked me to share this additional note with you:
Naming an angel
When you hold your attention on the name of an angel, they feel it as a rush of light, of warmth, an increase in the density/temperature of the field. They know that you are thinking of them by name. And this is, for them, as a rush of feeling and they always respond in kind. The more practiced you become at feeling and sensing their presence, the more you will feel, sense and know they are responding.
And Amy is asking: How will we know they are responding? And we will expand on this question: You will know by your experience, which is not a riddle or a loop of circular logic but an introduction to our next teaching.
You will know us by our acts and by your own. You will know us by our proofs; which you will experience in your own body, your own thinking and your own feeling. You will know us by the signs that we send to alert you to our constant presence. (
We hear you when you call on us by name – even when you name us as a collective, as ‘the angels’ or ‘the universe’ or ‘God’ or, as your sister, Beth, jokes, “the big whatever.’ For we recognize our ‘name’ through the vibration with which you offer it. None of these names is our name but all of these names are good when offered in love.
And you will know the name is good by the feeling in your own body when you call it and when you feel the name is not quite ‘good’ you will naturally follow your attention which searches for a better, more accurate name, and you will find our name – and rest with it and within it.
And by your act, of trying one thing and testing how it feels/seems to you, you will know us. And you will know us by the things that happen around you when you come into resonance/connection/experience with us and within the field of our message – the coincidental meeting, the song on the radio, the dream which seems to carry guidance you might carry into the light of day. You will know us by the visits from birds, bees, dragonflies, butterflies – for the gentle winged creatures of the earth are happy to help convey our message of love and peace to you.
And you will know us by our response to your asking to know us and your willingness to trust that this response is real. And by the heart-shaped stone, the license plate with the name of your beloved, the rain bow which appears just when you asked for a sign of hope.
Of course these things are real! And to the extent that you can welcome and allow them to collect around you, that is the extent that you will experience the knowing that we are here with you and you are here with us ; and that we are holding you in a field of love.
For we are real and you, too, are real – as you, too, are love, emerging in a world of love.
So, how will you know us? By your thoughts of us. By your feeling of us. By your sensing of us. By your knowing of us. For all of these things are your experience of us.
And by way of example, we re-mind Amy now to observe that when she is flowing our message there is no headache, no block, and that she is learning, quickly and quite ably, to flow our messages with great efficiency. And our messages can now be longer and flow more easily, with very little interruption and we draw the readers attention to this as evidence that when you begin – when you simply attend to the message (and the action) being offered by your nature, things will flow and it is and will be good.
And by 'good' we mean, blessed. And this will be our next message: the world of blessing, the world of separation from blessing and what it means when the Lord says, “And it is good.”
And Amy is closing her crown chakra now. She will rest and return later – for she has errands to run, to purchase groceries and also to recharge and restore herself through sustenance.
As we close, we are reminding Amy to make a note to bring this question to us in a future session: the question of the angels/devas as architects, which Matthew found in a book – and Matthew is an architect so he delighted in this.
And Matthew is supporting our message now and receiving it in his way – and yes, Amy we will weave his message into the book as well.
And now we withdraw from the vessel. allowing her to rest and this is our promise: that we are here with you for conversation whenever you return.
And so be it and so it is this 16th day of April, 2016.

As the guides have shown me, the more we engage with the work, the more the work expands in us and around us.
