Diffusing Anxiety

When I was a little girl, I had the good fortune to interact with a wise clairvoyant woman who assisted me on my path. I was eleven years old, and she said to me, “Your greatest challenge, will be to overcome Fear.” As a child I was afraid of very few things in this world. When discussing fear and the ways it can manifest with my parents, they discussed the concept with me that “behind Anger there is Fear, behind Fear there is Longing.

As my personal exploration into the nature of Fear deepened, I came to acknowledge that I was fearful of receiving and sharing my spiritual perceptions in many social instances. I also acknowledged a deep longing within myself to make changes and space in my life to be more aligned with my Soul Path. For the highly sensitive individual, and those who are newly ‘awakening’ or acknowledging their sensitivities and etheric perceptions for the first time, there can be moments where the ‘openness’ of our being is overwhelming and we experience anxiety. Many people guard their inner light, wisdom and knowledge, fearful of the rejection or of being ostracized by the world if they allowed themselves to express fully, who they are. When experiencing an intense time of transition or transformation, we can experience ‘fear’ as old patterns are realized and we are asked to choose new directions in our life and well being. Fear can manifest in many ways, one of which is to cause Anxiety. *Anxiety in this instance, I refer to as a feeling on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels, as well as exhibiting physical manifestations such as elevated heart rate, upset stomach, and hot or cold flashes. Each person deals with anxiety in their own unique way, yet we each benefit from developing further tools that diffuse and release fear.

On the etheric level, when I ‘look’ at myself or another person who is feeling fearful, the image is of a being beneath a dome of cement like energy. Outside the dome of heavy stifling, sometimes crushing energy, is all of the divine assistance, angelic light, ascended masters, guides and helpers a person is surrounded by. To shift, and crack, or release this energy, to break through the stagnant dome, is to allow for the assistance of these helpers to connect more clearly with a person.

When in the presence of anxiety I send out a prayer such as:

“Dear Divine Source of Creation, please send your warrior energy through Archangel Micheal or Kali Ma, to assist me now in releasing all fear based energy surrounding me at this time. I ask that my guardian angels bolster my courage to help me to see the ways in which I have the power to change my experience in all ways. Please help me to feel the bridge of light that connects me to the Divine and send me the assistance of Archangel Sandalphon to carry my prayers for change, wellbeing and self knowledge. Thank you, Amen, Aho and OM.”

After such a prayer, take deep breaths with hands interlaced across the stomach and facing downwards. Connecting with the third chakra, and the ‘power center’ of the being, what images, sensations, feelings or messages does one perceive at this time?

As a highly sensitive and clairvoyant person, I visualize a wave of light washing across the being, and disintegrating the dome of anxiety or fearfulness. When the wave of light on the etheric realm has disintegrated or washed away the anxiety, the mental, emotional and physical body are simultaneously offered an opportunity for positive alignment. I allow for the wave of light to infuse the cells of the body, to create space for the root cause of the fear to surface and be examined, so that release is possible.

Sometimes we must be willing to deepen our self awareness to find the root cause. For example, a few years ago I felt very anxious about earning more money. Yet when I meditated on what was truly causing me anxiety, I found that I wanted to switch career paths, that I yearned to take a chance on myself and follow my dreams for a spiritual based career. The fear surrounding money was actually a longing to invest in myself and to be more spiritually attuned so that I could express my inner Truth. Through allowing for the assistance of the divine to release the dome of anxiety I was carrying around, I began to ‘see’ the ways in which I had the tools, courage and power necessary to make the change I yearned for. Each person has the free will and personal power to develop their sensitivity and understanding of the energetic/ spiritual reality of the universe and of themselves.

When we allow that we can alter our reality on the spiritual level, we empower ourselves to make changes on the physical plane of existence. I have learned that in examining fear and anxiety as teachers and indicators that change is necessary for Divine heath, that we can all be empowered in our commitment to allow transition, transformation and healing in our lives.

Being Present, Harnessing the Light

As the spiritual energy that we are open to receiving, is transmuted into our conscious minds and bodies, we must each seek to ‘ground’ our being into the physical world, like an anchor holding a ship215_39316475312_913_n at full sail. Our physical being is the vessel for the spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects of self. Without it, we return to radiant light. As many people embark on spiritual awakenings, it is particularly important to engage in a personal practice of ‘grounding’ that allows for the harnessing of etheric energy and expanded consciousness in a healthy physical manner of being.

Our bodies must receive the care and nurturing, the expression and balance they need to maintain alignment for divine health. Some of the ways that etheric awakening can effect the physical body, are to accelerate sensitivities in patterns of food, exercise, and breathe. We may notice reactions to food, beverages, and others substances that require us to change familiar patterns, to effect greater personal wellness. We notice the way our body craves movement and the relationship to our breathe with feelings of calm, peace or personal power. The power of our bodies to transform,regenerate and heal, being filled with vital energy, is directly effected by the spiritual, mental and emotional beliefs we carry about ourselves and the world at large.

For those that astrally protect, dream walk, or are highly sensitive through feeling (clarsentience), sight (clairvoyance), hearing(clairaudience) or divine inspiration(claircognizience), the body requires investments of time and care that align the full self in a healthy way with the physical manifestation of the the world. Each person, instinctively is drawn to the physical manifestation for personal ground that is most suited to their particular resonance. Some people need water, to truly connect and ‘feel; the cells of their body being anchored to the earth. others need high alpine winds, or the slopes of mountains, while others still have a park bench, a beloved garden, or the field of grass they feel drawn to laying down upon. We, as individuals, walk the planet, each footstep cradled by a greater living source, the life force of the earth. Through our connection both to the earth itself, and the body that houses us, we become more acutely aware of the ways in which our own gifts can effect positive change, growth, sustenance and joy personally and publicly. For example, if I have dedicated a week to ‘receiving’ messages from the divine source, in service to others, I must also take several hours in the following days, to reconnect with the physical reality of my own life. If I give a reading, or a prayer for another, my personal being, seeks to be grounded in a very physical way through time in nature, preferably with my shoes off.

What are the ways in which we can each identify areas in our life that are seeking balance through personal ‘grounding’? A simple prayer/meditation/practice that I have found useful is as such.

Interlacing my fingers, I place my hands palms facing down over my navel. Breathing deeply, I allow my mind to relax, and my spiritual awareness to unfurl, and I pray something like this:

“Dear God/dess, please guide my body and being to the healthiest grounding practices and places that I am resonating with at this time. Please send the assistance of Archangel Micheal to cut any chords that are connecting me to energy draining patterns, and please send the assistance and strength of the ascended master Shiva to revitalize my cells so that I am aware of the ways my physical empowerment will benefit the whole of my life purpose. Thank you, Amen and OM.”

After I have uttered the prayer, I allow myself to receive any messages such as through images or feelings that encourage an expression of anchoring on the physical level. perhaps I feel the gentle breeze such as would move through the forest when on a trail, or the sound of water rushing, like when visiting a waterfall. Whatever the message is, as encompassing as a full day out of doors, a yoga practice or for a few minutes of dancing around the room, I commit to honoring the impetus, and being more fully present in my physical being. Through this presence, I am more rooted, balanced, and grounded in harnessing the cosmic vibrations of compassion, peace, and strength which I seek to transmute to the world at large. When we allow the physical to express itself, energy is transmuted and released, patterns can be changed, and empowerment harnessed.

May we each feel strong, in body, mind, heart and spirit,

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia
