In honour of the cycles of seasons and personal unfolding, this months weekly forecasts will feature gentle self awareness practices:
“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”

‘Celebrating Highly Sensitive Children’https://compassionangelcardreading.com/2014/01/23/celebrating-highly-sensitive-children/ ‘Sign Posts for Life Purpose’ https://compassionangelcardreading.com/2017/03/02/sign-posts-for-life-purpose/
In a meditative state, we are all more aware of the power of prayer and divine communion for saturating our lives and all living things with the essence of Peace and Love. There can be moments, during ones communion with the Divine, when the light pathways that surround us, this planet and star system as a whole, become clear, and vibrant. In those moments, the true prosperity of life is revealed. The aspect of all living beings resonating with light, the spirit essence of creation, connects the plants, animals, humans and elements in an incredible web of energy. Places, people, and animals and the etheric realm such as the spirit helpers angelic light beings, fairy kingdom and ascended masters, each pulse as an intersection, a power source that feeds and sustains the whole.
When people say ‘we are one’, I perceive it as the interconnectedness of all living beings and creations. From this ‘vision’ or level of perception, we are better able to help one another, to balance and encourage the ultimate abundant resonating potential we each carry. From this feeling, we are able to respect the animals and the plants, the elements that sustain and nourish the planet and all her creatures as a whole. This vision of light, allows for manifestations of great change. If the light source of the planet that an individual carries, is connected to all other beings, then through loving and developing our own gifts, we have a direct effect on infusing the overall light of this planet on the spiritual level. In this card, we are reminded to find sacred time and space to commune with the Divine and with the light that radiates across and threads through all that is and continues to be created. In this aspect of Divine communion, we are each rich in prosperity, filled with abundant potential, and provided for in all our needs. The emotional level can be healed, the physical level strengthened and revitalized, the spiritual awareness expanded and the mental level free of worry.
May we each remember the Divine Spark we carry in our hearts and Souls.
With appreciation for the ways we are each learning, remembering and finding the courage to shine,
“Health and happiness are two attributes that the majority of the planet strive towards. The health of themselves as well as their families and loved ones, the health of their countries and the planet as a whole. Though there is a disparity of wealth across the planet that could be altered and healed, there has also been indication that humanity has a desire to evolve to a place of generosity with both itself and nature. Though we often are bombarded in the news with messages that show devastation and duress, it is important to look around us, to really see the kindness that occurs on a grass roots level, and allow ourselves to imagine that it is possible on a global level as well. The energy that we ‘broadcast’, the thought patterns that we carry each day, contribute to the collective unconscious and the greater wave lengths of the planet as a whole, and do effect change. With each thought we have that people can make choices based on kindness, and respect for life, the greater the opportunity for those that are open to receiving and transmitting the light do so.” from Chapter 5 of Soul Evolution: Chapter Five, Multiplying Vibrations of Happiness and HealthThere is always enough space in the world for more people to speak, write, paint and express loving Kindness. To say something nice, to give a compliment for the sake of acknowledging inner beauty, without a desire to receive anything in return, but with the intention of raising the vibration of another human and in turn the planet. To all of you seekers, dreamer, poets silent or loud, lovers and light filled radiant beings, I salute and thank you. You are all beautiful to me.with lightKamia
Thank you, all of you beautiful souls, vibrant spirits and divine love sharing individuals! May 2014 bring joy and gentle transformation, a renewal of your deepest dreams and nourishing relationships that support your unique path. Its an honour to be on the planet with you!
It is a time on the planet with incredible potential for transformation and change both on an individual level as well as humanity in its entirety. Be conscious of the effects of the transformation on your mood and energy level, take time through out each day to re-focus awareness on your inner being and wellness. Be patient and gentle as lifetimes of karmic debris sift past or around or off of you and others. Call on your helpers and guides to bring more light into your being and to cleanse your aura. Give yourself the gift of inner balance, allowing emotions to flow through you, but not control you. Breathe in fresh pure air, and feel sunlight on your face. Make a commitment to radiate your inner light outwards, and others will be inspired to also shine. Each human and being on the planet has light to shine. When we are all shining, there are no limits to what can be healed and manifested.
What is a message for people regarding inviting blessings into their lives?
Magical Mermaids and Dolphins deck.
Many people are becoming more adept at manifesting and feeling familiar with positive affirmations. One of the key ingredients to manifesting, however, is to heal any emotional wounds or beliefs that block the positive flow of divine blessings, by working on ‘knowing’ one is ‘Worthy’ of blessings. This means continuing to tell the self, and the loud and sometimes abusive ego, that we are all Worthy of love, good fortune, health, vitality, happiness, and prosperity, every day. If we carry a belief structure that is based on fear, such as ‘I am only worthy when I have done something that deserves reward’, this could be a thought such as income or weight or fitness level,then we are sending out a negative affirmation to the universe. The angels and guides, and your higher self, as well as whichever Deity resonates with you, already believe you are deserving of blessings. They are with you, at your periphery, whispering that you are lovable, beautiful, talented, and worthy right now! When we allow ourselves to believe we are worthy of blessings, they will appear far more quickly. Some of the ways we can overcome heart chakra blocks, and heal emotional patterns are through loving self affirmations. Gentle touch such as massage with a practitioner who one feels safe with, and is energetically intuitive can be very healing for the heart. Another way is to use the essential oil of Rose. The oil can be placed directly over the heart center as well as behind each ear. As it is placed on the body, try the prayer “I receive divine love, I am worthy and deserving of Love. I hear messages from the world and myself that are loving.” You can also buy an actual rose or download a picture of one to watch the beautiful unfurling of its petals, and visuals the same unfurling at your own heart center. The message I hear angels and guides shout, more than any other to all people is : “You are worthy and deserving of Love!” Allowing in blessings and manifesting, is rooted in Love.
“What do People on the planet need to be aware of when they are overcome with feelings of fear and unease?”
I believe all individuals on the planet are indeed going through a time of mass transformation, and it is uncomfortable on all levels. To find balance as we are all encountering a deep Sensitivity, to harsh media images, environmental destruction and political machinations, we must remember to create a sense of ‘sacred space’ around ourselves, and to help encourage others to do so as well. Sacred Space can be about taking time to honour strong emotions, look at them, and then release them, to ask for guidance form ones personal angels and guides, and to purify our direct environments, perhaps through a tidying up ion the physical level and buying some fresh flowers to remember that we all radiate life and sweetness, or to have salt baths to help detoxify on emotional, spiritual, and physical levels. The angel Haniel sits in a pristine environment, strumming a harp. Music can elevate our vibrations and change our energy, give yourself the gift of uplifting music, to sing, dance, or even cry with. Like Haniel, know that your soul is a beautiful, shining light and like the swans swimming behind Haniel, your soul wishes to be in a state of Grace. Call on Haniel to help find your inner centre, and distinguish what emotions and thoughts are truly your own and what energy you are picking up from those around you and the world at large. Bring beauty to yourself by visiting nature, and taking a moment to connect with the earth. Above all, know that you are not alone in these transformational times. Angels are everywhere.
