Self Empowerment for Divine Love at First Sight

People have varied opinions on the phrase ‘love at first sight.’ The more committed I am to experiencing the world and people at large with the etheric perceptions of my clairvoyance and intuition, the more I readily embrace the phrase as true. Love at first sight for me, is a celebration of truly seeing all of the light that another person, the world around me, nature and animals and the etheric reality afford, whenever I am willing to celebrate and recognize light in all its forms. Light as the resonance of the Soul, as the thought forms, the prayers and highest vibrations of positive energy that stretch between all living beings, and the cosmic reality of the universe.

I am able to walk into a situation and Love because I have first made an investment of energy in balancing myself, and recognizing my own gifts. From a place of personal empowerment, there is a boundless well of energy that I have found accessible for encouraging others to celebrate their own unique gifts. I see people fighting their own personal battles, just as I have overcome challenges within my own life, and I Love them. I can express this love through a prayer, a kind word, or by sharing a story about tools I have found to overcome challenges. Loving the world at large does not manifest as enabling, or ‘fixing’ or changing other people. Loving for me, manifests as encouraging personal empowerment. Each person has a divine link to the greater God/dess source, and choices each day about expressing this link, utilizing it for strength, amplifying their own light through this connection, and finding new ways to express, connect and celebrate the light around them in people and places that resonate in alignment with their personal vibration. When I am empowered, I am able to Love, whether I am meeting someone for the first time, or encountering a person, or family member repeatedly. The combination of personal empowerment and Love is like a shield that deflects all lower vibrations, and fear based energy that circulate in the collective reality, or in situations I once found uncomfortable, hurtful, or challenging.

A simple prayer I have used to empower myself:

“I ask that God/dess work with my Higher Self to help me to release all patterns that are fear based. Please Archangels, and Ascended Masters working alongside me at this time, help me to recognize the ways in which I am empowered by my personal gifts and light, and encourage me to connect with the bravery, the kindness, the compassion and grace, that I have as a reflection of the divine source, within my own Soul. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

A simple prayer I have often said for others:

“Dear God/dess, source of all creation, please send the light beings that are most aligned with (the person’s name or an image in your mind of the person you have wish to pray for) to remind them of their own divine light. Please assist this person in recognizing opportunities for personal empowerment, healing, and compassion that are around them each day. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

As a new wave of energy moves across the planet, the shifting of one year to the next, what are the choices each of us can make that help us to be more empowered? To step forward along our own divine path to encourage others to also feel empowered in the personal expression of divine Truth? The world will always have more space for each of us to express Love personally, communally, and universally. What are the expressions of Love that we can each make this new year, both great and small? Is it through art, writing, public speaking, action, choices about Loving ways to react, movement, building, creating, group support or planting of seeds both physical or metaphorical? Do we express love by raising funds for others? Or donating time and energy to a cause close to our heart that empowers others? We all have gifts for a future that is co-creating peace and Love on a grander scale. When we decide to move forward and follow our dreams of our deepest being, we become empowered, and able to Love on an expansive level.

For each person who is transforming aspects of self, areas in their life, and relationships personally and universally, I send you Love, respect, and appreciation for your courage. You all inspire me.

with light,

Personal Hibernation; the Dream Cycle

December has always felt for me, like a re-entry into the womb of my spiritual self.  I feel myself becoming more internal, like a bear that has entered the cave and is bedding down for the hibernation dreaming months.  The past experiences of the previous year begin to settle in my consciousness, like the dirt on the floor and walls of my bear cave.  As I begin to dream for my future year, for the world as I wish to re-enter it in the spring, and the gifts I hope to bring forth, I can feel how this release of the past year, the settling of etheric experience becomes the rich soil that the new dreams draw sustenance from.  This month, I wish to share one of the internal practices I utilize for a more empowered dream cycle.

Using a pen and paper, write down a list of all that has been accomplished this last year.  Not only the times that a goal was achieved, but also when a challenge was survived.  It is not only the experiences that we celebrated, but the deepening of our compassionate selves, that grew in moments of grief that deserve recognition.  Take time with the writing.  Go back, and add the moments of shame, or guilt, or absolute joy.  When the list feels complete, take a moment to breathe deeply and really integrate, what this list means for oneself in terms of personal growth. Did the experience make the heart feel more open?  Did it add a new level of compassion to share?  Was there a deepening of strength, when something was survived or endured? Were the moments those of faith realized?  Each thing that was noted, has deepened the human experience.  I like to say out loud, or think a prayer during this integration such as:

“Dear God/dess, help me to accept and assimilate the different aspects of ‘self’ this last year has helped polish, reveal, and grow.  Help me to see the value in each experience and to feel compassion towards myself in the learning.  I ask that all Archangels aligned with my life purpose at this time, bring me clear messages and understanding, for the ways in which these new aspects of ‘me’ can be brought forward as gifts for my personal future, and the world at large.  Please guide me towards the time and sacred space that I need to fully integrate these lessons, so that my new dreams have greater space to be planted in my spiritual, mental, emotional and physical being. Thank you, Amen, Om, and Aho.”

If there is another practice that surfaces in the consciousness, such as a walk by moonlight for further contemplation, or an art board to bring forward the previous years growth into a collage with the approaching years dreams, then allow the art to unfold.  Before the solstice, when the light begins to return, we are each given the seasonal integrative opportunity to delve into the ‘darker’ aspects, the dream rich self, and to bring forth the fertile energy of soul-soil.

May your soil be rich, and filled with dreams,

with light,
