102. Canela Michelle Meyers

Canela Michelle MeyersOnce the shift to the Awakened State of Being has occurred, it becomes obvious that every moment that proceeded that moment was significant towards its Self.

It is also obvious that Awareness was present in each and every moment prior to that.  The difference is in that it is ‘Realized’ – Awareness is aware of Awareness.

The journey for Canela Michelle towards this realization was happening long before she had heard of the potential of consciously living in the stateless state of Being.  Once she heard that this was possible in 1995, the path was lit up and speedy until she ended up in Satsang with Isaac Shapiro in February 1998.  By this time her inner and outer explorations were deep and subtle yet her explorations of what she perceived seemed to only serve to expand all of that even more…so she simply asked Isaac:  ‘Is it beyond perception?’  He answered ‘Yes’ and in that moment, what was there previously as some sort of structure fell away, leaving only ‘What Is’ at play and Awareness being aware of That.


It is recognized that the only reality is what is aware of itself in each moment, that there is nothing beyond that play happening, whatever the play might be.

Canela Michelle is an expression of Awareness in each moment…just like everyone else is whether they recognize it yet or not (as is all that appears – air, body, thought, chair, taste, etc.).  Her love is in supporting people to relax open to this Truth.  Supporting them to allow themselves to not only recognize Love, but to experience That; simply as it is, dependant on nothing at all.

Awareness is the constant in the midst of the play of events.  What rises, or appears in each moment might feel or look like an obstacle to Love, yet when a person opens to directly experiencing whatever that is, it shifts, changes and merges with all that is…no longer appearing as if it were an obstacle.

There is nowhere to get to, you are already ‘Here’; it’s simply a matter of ‘meeting’ whatever might be appearing, right here, right now, in each moment.  Once explored, it is recognized only as an invitation, from your Self to your Self…Love beckoning you hither.

The support is offered in Satsang Meditation gatherings, individual & couple Satsang Sessions in person or by phone and in her first book: Right Here, Right Now Meditations – Satsang Invitations for Expanding Awareness.

  1. What ever she smoked it wasn’t laced with LSD. LSD is not stable when burnt it’s an urban myth it probably was PCP or angel dust for such a long term high

  2. Yes, the doc who was so supportive at the time did say that, that his ‘guess’ was LSD, PCP or angel dust.

    In response to David’s comment about the Satsang Invitations being available, they still are available. They happen about twice per month. People can sign up to receive them on the website http://www.canelamichelle.com

    Also responding to David’s comment regarding golden light….this is very present during Satsang gatherings or sessions with people. Sometimes present at other times also. All is bathed in golden light, what appears in it – people, air, walls, chairs, etc. all appear in various shades of gold light. This is seen not only with this Self, Canela, it is also seen by many participants in the moment of its occurance. The white light happened only once, fully and completely as it did (so far), the golden light happens more and more often and more and more obviously.

  3. Hi Canela
    Thanks for the feedback.
    The golden light you refer to is generally called “celestial” or “finest relative”. It is the perceptual value of the fine vibration of consciousness that leads to all expressed values. Like seeing Quantum Physics in action macroscopically. It becomes easier to see when group consciousness is more enlivened, like in a satsang. Some people see it more as an outer aura or around live things. These are slightly different values of the same. Life is that fine vibration in motion, the movement of consciousness. Auditorially, we may hear it as Aum or a high whistle, then dividing into detail. From a feeling level, we feel the flow as love and the vibration as bliss. (because bliss is on that fine level, its often why people first experience it going into and coming out of silence. Crossing the surface we could say. When that value becomes established in awareness, then bliss is pretty much always present. Sat Chit Ananda)

    Some may see a white aura but the white you experienced is much deeper than the local expression itself. It is the origin of all creation, the play of God. Some say mother divine or the female side of first duality within Oneness. The all-absorbing flash may happen with or prior to awakening but not everyone gets it. It seems key in the ability to cognize the nature of reality. As Maharishi once said, everyone has the ability to realize but not everyone to cognize. As such, it is a profound gift.

  4. I just saw this interview and enjoyed it all the way. Canela has said things that are helping me to get to a better understanding of few aspects of the spiritual path. I also want to thank Rick for this one interview (and a couple of others that I saw in the last few days). Canela further showed me that “enlightment” is not what one may think it is and how it is as unique for each one as it is also the same in essence. Thanks Canela for your openess to talk here about your life adventure.
