How many times in one life, or in a thousand lifetimes do we live, and die and rebirth? Sometimes I awake like a baby bird, tentatively exploring the world with ‘new’ eyes. The world around me fragile yet filled with possibilities and light, a reflection of the internal transformation that I have recently emerged from.
Over the past four days I embarked on a journey, a commitment of self to travel through the internal ‘wheel’ of awareness and allow for transformation, regeneration, and growth. When we actively acknowledge that we have been, or are in need of a re-birthing of self, there are several levels that can benefit from devotion of energy.
Intense energy is circling the planet, our individual lives, countries and the globe at large. Each of us has our own path and journey, our own evolution of soul, and each of us will experience a ‘rebirthing’ of self several times throughout each individual lifetime. Parts of us live and die as we forge or release relationships, become parents, change directions in jobs, leave or build new homes. The shifting seasons are a kind of mirror, an offered prayer to remember all that we have planted, let sleep, seen grow, and harvested in the cycle of our individual years.
As a child, my parents took me to Medicine Wheel Gatherings. The first was with Sun Bear in the early 1990’s. They held my hand and asked me to listen with my spirit and heart as I walked the circle of stones. I have visited temples, monasteries and churches around the world, and always endeavor to walk with this same listening of spirit and heart. With this internal perception, though I may not understand the words that have been written in other languages in each sacred space, I feel and connect with the heart energy, the resonance of the earth and the prayers that have been placed in such sacred space’s keeping. There is a vibration of Peace, of self love and divine love that thrums across time and space, culture and language. We all have access to it, we all are capable of broadcasting it.
To rediscover this resonance within us, sometimes we require an active commitment of self, a meditation or personal mantra that allows for clarity on each level of awareness to connect with the internal and universal resonance of light. These commitments of self can become journeys that span the globe, or take but a few precious moments each day amidst our other routines. The intuitive yearning that we each can connect to, guides us as individuals along the ‘right’ path for us.
Five days ago, the fiery energy sweeping across the planet, the intense wave of transformational energy, indicated to me, that it was time for a re-birthing of self. I was tired, on many levels. I asked my angels and guides for assistance in helping me choose a regenerative practice that would bring about the greatest balance, and what they ‘showed’ me was an image of myself as a child, walking in the soft sunlight, around a medicine wheel.
In honor of the four directions on the wheel, I spent a day devoted to each aspect of self; the trust, innocence and enthusiasm of physical being, the emotional and introspective qualities of self, the wisdom of spiritual receptive knowledge and finally the freedom of enlightenment and mental clarity.
The physical, mental, spiritual and emotional bodies all receive and transmit daily. Each cell in the body is a reflection, a mirror vibrating what is occurring on each level of its existence. To revitalize cells can require a devotion of energy for loving kindness, forgiveness, hope and healing. They can require this not only through kind words, healthy food, prayer or mantra and meditation but also through allowing for assistance to come from the Divine, in whatever name, or spiritual path we have presently chosen.
As I complete my internal medicine wheel, the clairvoyant aspect of my being ‘sees’ a revitalized self. I am like a wheel that can roll forward once more, balanced by having acknowledged and released energy on each level that I was ready to move beyond. Were some of the days uncomfortable, painful, sad? Absolutely. Were they also awash with gentleness, acceptance, peace and relief? Absolutely.
I carry forward a new version of self, an integrated being.
Whatever steps, time or focus, our inner knowing is encouraging us to take, to return to a place of feeling balanced, grounded and able to flow in this world, it is vital to listen. The fire of transformation can feel like it burns us, or it can be a glow, a spark and a tended fire that fuels us. Our honoring of our own need for dying, death and rebirth on each level, is a natural progression towards a collective rebirthing. We can birth Peace.
A prayer with the assistance of ascended masters and angels to encourage a gentle rebirthing experience:
“Dear God/dess, please send me the assistance and Gentle messages I need at this time to guide me towards self healing and rebirth. Please help me identify with the inner wisdom I carry, the ways in which I can encourage my own cycle of release, regeneration, and growth.
I ask that the light of Jesus, the healing wisdom that can be carried by each of us, be ignited within me, to assist in the choices I make each day.
I ask that the light of the spirit helpers, the earth keepers such as White Buffalo Calf Woman, encourage me to connect with the planet as well as the Peace within myself.
Please send the archangels that are working with me at this time, to re-evaluate and recognize all of the transformation I have accomplished in this life as well as any other, so that I may have the courage to rise from this current cycle, with more Love and Light to share with the world.
I am receptive towards all light based assistance for this transformation. Thank you, Amen, Om, and Aho”
with light and respect,
