Do You Know How Wise and Powerful You Are? by John Cali

The Hand of God

In a recent private reading one of our clients said something that really struck me—she said she felt she was speaking to herself through my spirit guides.

I had to think about her words only a moment to realize what a profound insight she had. It’s one of the clearest ways I’ve ever heard of expressing what channeling is all about. When we talk to the spirit guides (either directly or through a channel) we access that part of ourselves that is, literally, God.

As Ramana Maharshi said, “God, Guru, and Self are One.”


The reason you do not access that God-part of yourselves is because of the blinders you have placed on yourselves—blinders which your societies and cultures often encourage you to wear.

But today more and more of you are growing in such ways, and at such speeds, that you clearly understand the blinders no longer serve you—if they ever did. So now you are returning home to yourselves, to God.

You have all chosen this particular incarnation because you wanted to more fully remember the power and wisdom you have within you. You will have “arrived” when you begin to see the thinning of the veil—the veil you have placed between yourselves and God.

You need no longer search for answers outside yourselves. You need no authority or power beyond that within yourselves. You have it all right there. You do not even need people like John (our channel) to access the answers, the power, the wisdom you have within you.

The only requirement for gaining access to these answers, power, and wisdom within is to simply trust. Trust yourselves, trust your inner wisdom, trust your power. The time has come for the veil between you and God to be torn apart and shed. You are God.


Confucius is one of my favorite philosophers. He’s truly a wise man. I love this video which shares some of his wisdom.

    this is only terminology difference … but i would say we are the wave and God is the ocean. So its ok to say we have imprint of God in us. but the wave cannot say its the Ocean.
    I know thats not what was meant here anyway.
    yes i do believe we can reach that pure consciousness and its in each of us ready to be accessed any second we decide to.
    thanks for the message.

    Funny thing, you know, you knock on a door and so much that was hidden before comes forward for you to look at — I am only beginning to process all the information that Spirit has delivered over the past week! A dear sister connected me to a Gregg Braden lecture (it’s over 3 hours long) on the Divine Matrix and our interconnectedness and how that can actually be seen and measured by technology at this point in time, and also why it’s been hidden from us for so long. I’ve only viewed parts of it, but will persevere… If you want to check it out you can at:

    With love and blessings for all!

      Thanks very much, Susan. I love Gregg Braden. In my opinion, he’s one of the greatest teachers on the planet today.

    Beautiful post, John, thank you. Had come to my attention lately, that I do sometimes channel without realizing it, in the sense I may operate through the connection to spirit in any given moment.

    You noted that many teachers say we are all one, and we are God.

    Confucius put it in this way: Heaven means to be one with God.

    I’ve been blessed to know it is so, even if I ‘forget’ at times when I’m focused on my day to day. For me, it was about going within …not looking for my answers ‘out there’, and finally remembering who I am, making that connection. Before I had faith…now I am certain of it……. but I’m not always mindful of it. Does that make sense?

    Religion I was taught told me I had to ‘become worthy’ and prepare to deserve to get to Heaven…which was someplace else, but certainly not here and now. Now I believe it was here all along, but we just couldn’t see it yet. All are worthy.

    Yes, the veil is thinning, as we change our core beliefs and see things in a new way. I finally realized that it was me put it there in the first place.

    Believing is seeing, so feeling happy in anticipation that we, all of us, will be bringing more of Heaven here to Earth.

    Do I know how wise and powerful I am? Hmmm, maybe. ha. Not the I singular me, but aligned in Unity with Spirit? Yes. Of course!

      Thanks very much, Val.

      I love that Confucius quotation. That says it all so simply and perfectly.

      Yes, what you said makes perfect sense. I too am not always mindful of that divine connection we all have — but it’s getting easier all the time.

      We are indeed bringing more heaven to earth. As Anita Moojani said in her book about her near-death experience, home (and God/Goddess) are where we are, whether here on earth or in the realms of spirit.

    I believe the majority of guides are projections of the self. i.e., the part of us who knows what we won’t acknowledge that we know.

    Thank you for the Video, John. AND for your post. The Master Jesus said, “Behold, The Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU~!”,,, How much plainer could He have said it? Yet, so many are so afraid of their own Divinity, which lies hidden but dominant with in them.

    Like the old Deutsch saying, “We grow too soon oldt, and too late schmardt~! ”

    Rather interesting, for two men who have never met, how closely our reading and studies have paralleled ~! Seth, Emmanuel, and I would imagine Bartholomew, as well ~!

    Thank You, John~!

    • John Cali

      Thank YOU, Conshana, for your thoughts, comments, and support.

      I agree — it’s been said many times, many ways — it’s all within us. I’m heartened by observing so many folks finally waking up to that reality.

      Yes, it is remarkable how closely parallel our spiritual path have been.

      Many blessings, Conshana!

    Hello John,

    What a very deep question!

    I feel that to say we are wise and powerful, without having lived the journey of being foolish and weak, is one of a life living on sand and I’m sure our oversoul would be ready to give out some humble pie…hahaha.

    As we live our life depending on the outside world, we will keep failing and discovering how insignificant we feel. When we keep hitting the bottom of the barrel enough times, at some point, we begin to start looking elsewhere for answers. It may not be that we are yet ready to look at ourselves from the inside (spirit) yet, but the journey of self-discovery has begun. The journey for each is different, at first we try to copy others, but we realize we have our own path, at least at some point. Every ‘ascended master’ is different. We are all different. So the journey we choose is ours alone and no one elses. For typical Christians, this journey of self-discovery is usually quite difficult as the ‘still leaning on Jesus’ is often hard to let go of.

    So when (as Confucius says), the wisest and most stupid of men say they are god, you only need to see the journey of each. Those who journey and come home, like the prodigal son, have truly experienced god as a human and then seen how much richer they are because of the journey. Coming home is most wonderful!!!

    Thanks so much for all you do John,
    Love to all,

    • John Cali

      Thanks very much, Jerry. Well, I think we can be wise and powerful — and humble too. 🙂

      I understand, and empathize with, the difficulty so many have in letting go of the old ways — even if those ways no longer serve them. I see that in so many folks I know.

      As you said, coming home is most wonderful. And, as Emmanuel says, we’ve never really left home.

      Thanks again, Jerry, for all your love and support.
