Solstice, December 21st

During the longest night of the year, when the stars and snow reflect one another, and if we are graced with the light of the moon, a gentle glow infuses the spaces between earth and sky, I like to say a prayer to release the past year and to invite in the Light of the returning sun.

For those who feel drawn to honouring this cycle of rebirthing the light in such a way, I share a version of my yearly prayer:

“Dear God/dess, dual aspects, soft darkness and unfolding light, please help us find our way through each level of being.

Thank you for the lessons and growth we have each been navigating in the darkness of subconscious self, and thank you for the opportunity to guide ourselves and others with deeper levels of compassion this growth has afforded.

Please bless those that we love, and those that challenge us, with angelic protection and assistance as they navigate their own darkness, and pathways.

Please help us to see all of the Beauty we are capable of inviting into our lives as the Light returns with this shift of seasons, and bring forth the Abundance we carry within, for the betterment of this world as a whole.

Thank you for blessing the relationships in our lives with acceptance and grace, and for bringing Love to those who are searching to share and receive it.
With the help of the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fairy Kingdom, Ancestors and Spirit Guides, may we receive and share with gratitude the return of Light, and the lengthening daylight hours, with renewed faith that through each cycle, we will find the courage and strength needed to navigate this life. Amen, OM and Aho.”

Thank you for all the ways you shine, in the spirit world, like distant stars through the darkest night’s sky, sharing hope with one another.

with light,
Kamia

Lighting Our Way Through Dark Nights of the Soul

The Soul travels through time and space, retaining knowledge of what pathways of light are sustaining of hope, what pathways of choices ultimately contribute to collective despair. The Akashic Records and our multiple reincarnations offer us ample opportunities to identify when a pattern or challenge is familiar, and we are equipped with free will to navigate it in a variety ways. Each of us, on our human incarnated present journeys, are asked, tested, so to speak, by circumstances in life that we have co-created, on an etheric level, how will we deepen our reservoirs of compassion? How will we create bridges together through grief, to the bliss of being on all levels, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically aligned?

Every spiritual devotee and seeker, must exist in the physical world and must experience the trials of developing or ignoring their personal gifts, or enhanced perception. Yet with each individual that commits to celebrating their gifts, energy vibrations lighten for the generations that follow and for those people that are interacted with on a daily, or soul path, basis. Through acknowledging that we go through continuous cycles of rebirth, death and dying, through uncovering the joy that fills the space between each release of old patterns, we become like master builders/teachers on each level, capable of intentionally constructing networks of light that support, elevate and encourage the collective unconscious as it radiates Love.

When a spiritual seeker is developing their skills, we each are given ample opportunity to fine tune our intentions, strengths and faith. Like the tasks that heroes and heroines of old were asked to preform to become worthy of their titles, each person incarnated on the planet is offered multiple scenarios and learning experiences to finely tune their particular gifts. Some of the lessons we experience deepen our wealth of compassion; we may experience deep wells of grief, frustration, confusion or other forms of human suffering. Yet, through those experiences, we are all ultimately offered the choice of what we will actively contribute on a grander scale having explored and survived such scenarios. Do we choose to turn the depth of our emotional experience into a lantern, helping hand, or a beacon of hope for others? Or do we recreate the lesson multiple times by seeking out those who reflect the emotional intensity of a scenario that is familiar, as we are offered choices repeatedly on how we wish to develop or unfold?

Our energy selves yearn to unfurl, like the wings of birds or butterflies, or waves crashing against the shore. Our energy bodies are often held in tightly against our perception of what physical space we ‘should’ occupy as humans.
Yet, when our vast and Soul rich self, is acknowledged, we are offered gifts for perceiving how in previous lives, we also moved through and beyond challenges, ever evolving and deepening our knowledge and wisdom of human, and spiritual experience. What are the gifts that rush to the surface of the psyche when we create new space through release? We each have gifts that contribute to the gifts of others around the globe. One persons kind or brave act often inspires or assists another person in honing their particular gifts. An artists work with a subject matter of a trial or pattern they have recently chosen to move through and beyond, for example, may help acknowledge and then heal the emotional wounds another carries, whom then becomes an advocate for people in trauma, whom in turn one day choose to raise families with acceptance and compassion, whom in turn build new communities, businesses and stories of their own that effect thousands.

On days in which I acknowledge that something that has been familiar, is ready to transition into a natural death cycle in my psyche, I take a moment to consider all of the ways in which I have learned from the pattern I wish to release. If I sense a friendship, a past-life loved one, a job, a lifestyle choice, or a thought pattern, that I am ready to move beyond, I am best able to identify it by seeing/acknowledging the space within me that no longer carries a desire to experience the intensity the situation evoked on an emotional, spiritual, mental or physical level. Once I have identified this space that is ready to be honoured, I say a prayer such as:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please surround myself and my loved ones in globes of divine light for protection, courage and strength. Please help me to honestly see the ways in which I have been feeding this (pattern/scenario/relationship) and clearly identify what needs to shift within my being to effect positive change in honouring my highest Truth and Soul Path. Thank you for assisting my clarity and infusing this situation with the healing I am ready to integrate and accept to move beyond this pattern, and to invite divine health into my life on all levels. Thank you, Amen, Aho, and Om.”

I then visualize sending the learning lesson deep levels of Love. As a clairvoyant person, this Love is something I perceive as like a river of light. I thank each person who contributed to the pattern, even those that caused pain, for without that discomfort, perhaps, I would not have recognized my desire to grow. And with the love that is being sent, I then release the feeling/image/pattern/scenario, in my mind, seeing the pathways of light that connected me, dissolving and flowing away from my energy body like a leaf moving down a river. As the lesson moves out of my etheric field, I often feel a ‘lightening’ as if it is more possible to draw a deep and full breath, as new space has been opened up around my being.

We are all so connected to the etheric level of creation and this physical human experience in which we can awaken repeatedly in one lifetime, to infinite knowledge. We need not be caught in despair or anger, we may choose new pathways each and every day. We may be highly conscious, totally sensitive evolving souls who learn with every breath that we are blessed with, in our current bodies. All people have compassion and gifts to offer when making choices with focused intent for a more healthful existence and cohabitation of this wondrous planet.  As sensitive awakening beings, the souls incarnated on this planet have a millennia of knowledge, wisdom and perception that sees through the veils of current reality, to the possibilities, the incredible vision of what individuals and groups working in collective manifestation, are capable of contributing.

Thank you for shining.
with light and respect,
Kamia

Innocence and Relationship

Authentic Voice and Inner Calm

 

Recently I have had several people comment that I am very calm, which often surprises me. My internal landscape has volcanic eruptions of emotions, etheric pendulums of cosmic unfolding, and a mental dialogue at the speed of a hummingbirds wing. Yet I accept these comments, as a reflection of a personal dedication to balance. Through the authenticity of acknowledging what I need in each moment to find a balanced self, balance can resonate like calmness.

img_2416

No matter how old we are in physical body, we have aspects of ourselves that will forever be as pure and innocent as a young child. In the capacity of acknowledging that this aspect of self exists, we are offered the choice to honor the words, action and movement that can be practiced to bring about personal authenticity, calm and empowerment. Our words, beliefs and faith in the outside world often mirror the words that we use with ourselves.

I have the good fortune to work with a few hundred children, sharing in the gifts of Yoga. Children are receptive on so many levels. Their ‘intuition’ and heightened sensitivities, their sixth sense, is finely tuned to discerning the nonverbal cues adults send around them each and every day. If we seek to empower them to feel safe, confident and supported, one of the ways to do so, is to attune our inner voice with our outwards voices and actions. Before I teach and share yoga with the children, the future generations who will be caretakers of our planet, I empower myself to seek personal balance. In my personal practice I feed myself honesty. The words, the feelings, the movements and breathing that my being is calling out for, in its search for balance. On days where I am sleepy, vulnerable or discouraged, I empower myself to be honest on an internal level with these feelings. If we are feeding ourselves with gentle, loving kindness such as ‘I know you are doing the best that you are able to at this time. Thank you, I am proud of you.’ Instead of a negative or hurtful thought pattern, other people we encounter, particularly children, will hear gentleness and loving kindness in the words that we use with them. Authentic internal voice may sometimes say ‘I expected better from you today,’ But it can also say, ‘I forgive you and know that you can do better. I love and respect you in the ways that you are growing, changing and learning every day. In this inner dialogue, we begin to see changes in our outward lives.

Many parents have told me they wished they could feel a greater sense of calm when with their children. I offer them this gentle encouragement. ‘Instead of seeking to appear calm, give oneself permission to acknowledge what the self is truly seeking to feel Balanced, the calm follows honoring ones authentic self.’

If we are willing to be forgiving and kind internally, the world around us shifts and reflects this seeking for personal balance. Peoples actions, choices and impact then gather the momentum for us to recognize ways that we can be encouraging, forgiving and supportive of others. Children especially will feel a devotion to balance and kindness radiate off of us.

One of the prayers I use out loud or internally when seeking to acknowledge my authentic voice and self is:

“Dear God/dess, Creator and Light source of this magnificent earth, please help me to receive the gifts of self knowledge that allow for accurate identification of the thoughts, words, movement and color I need at this time to reconnect with a Balanced sense of Self. Please send the light resonance of the Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through all lower vibrations of self doubt or negativity I have been feeding myself. Please send the compassion, beauty and grace of Quan Yin and the Archangel Jophiel to assist me in seeing the beauty I have to share on an authentic level with all those I influence and encounter. Thank you beautiful earth for cradling my footsteps, as I stand in stillness or walk in new directions that honor my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

What are the words we can each feed ourselves in this moment to afford an opportunity for balance or self healing? Placing our hands over our heart centers we can take a series of deep breathes and ask our intuitive selves, ‘What do I need at this time?’ Whatever the answer, we are then given the choice to listen and honor the intuitive, innocent self that answers.

May we choose Compassion and Grace.

With light and respect for the ways we are each seeking balance at this time,

Predictions for Energy opportunities in 2015

 

Hope and Transforming into Peace *Forecast for energy available to us during 2015

10257280_728503633851561_2031832731251107399_n

I light my candle and say prayers for assistance of clarity and positive light based messages, I see a single word clearly; Hope. As the energy transitions into 2015, there is a doorway that continues to open. Mass consciousness has begun to shift and shake free of karmic debris carried forward from the last several thousand years.

The souls that have chosen to reincarnate during this life cycle are becoming even more aware of their previous life lessons they can evolve beyond. Children that are now in their teens to early thirties, step forward with greater confidence as the way has been paved for ‘truth speaking’. The highest truth of each individuals soul path is brighter as we connect with one another and engage with this ‘truth speaking’. The truth of belonging to this planet, and of co-creating it’s reality. As we pray, as we evolve and connect with our own unique soul paths, we are better equipped to cheer and celebrate one another.

Different ethnic and cultural beliefs are being offered new opportunities for mutual understanding and acceptance as we step forward through this doorway of global Choice. We choose the future that we create as mass consciousness.

For those who are visually minded, I share with you the images that I receive from Archangel Michael, who stands on the right side of this door, his sword and shield at the ready. He is clothed in strong purples and deep blues, and on the other side of the doorway the Blessed Mother is standing, in a soft blue robe. In her hands she holds a matrix of light, a mandala that is reminiscent of the flower of life, and has also been depicted as a blue rose.

They stand in balance, the transformative awakening energy of the purple representational of the sixth chakra and the ‘seeing of truth’ that all who engage in mediation, or communion with the Divine, are experiencing. The doorway is such as this expanded awareness, in that as we step through on the etheric plane, we are supporting this new opening with taking action steps on the physical.

This new year is sweeping through with encouragement, a loud cheering so to speak, from ascended masters and archangels and earth spirits who are ushering in the impetus for us all to act. To act in accordance with the future we are ‘hoping for’, not only individually but cosmically.

Each day we contribute to the overall well being of our families, communities, countries, the continents and the world at large. Will we choose peace? Will we choose it daily? The Ascended Masters and Archangels work in a network grid of connected light. At the intersections of this light are each human incarnation, like a gleaming radiant pinnacle in a constellation of stars. These intersections of light can activate one another across the globe.

Where a young person is painting in North America, their images, passing through the internet may ‘speak to’ or inspire a light worker who is working in a community in Asia to bring about cultural communication for peace between different religious groups. Women speaking and supporting one another across the globe is made more manifest in 2015, and young men, particularly those working with the yin, the divine feminine, as they seek to balance the aggressive energies, are beginning to walk into their power as this doorway opens.

Have we dreamed of schools that teach meditation to our children? This is the year to volunteer, propose, and move forward with these changes. Have we dreamed of partnering with schools across the globe, to have not only pen pals with other cultures, but to communicate about our children’s higher truths? The children of the planet with their wide eyes, and soul memories have much to contribute. They will ask for opportunities to organically garden, to speak of past lives, to work with crystals.

We as adults, as young adults and wise grandparents must step forward, making choices to support their peaceful and loving tendencies by acting in accordance with our own dreams. We must allow ourselves to be artists, dreamers, seekers, reverent beings. Many people who have retired are discovering a powerful impetus of energy to create in a new way. The men who were raised with father continuously at war have messages of Peace to share. They are transmitting Buddha messages of Peace. They will be distinguishable with kind eyes, some or all silver hair and they will tell stories, share stores in men’s circles or in a mentorship capacity for greater awareness of the value in Peace. Brotherhoods based more strongly around communication which is assertive, instead of aggressive. Children will benefit from this talk, they around the elementary age are particularly receptive to truth sharing through stories, and carry very pure empathy.

Women are beginning to reach out globally and will continue to do so. Look for women writing and speaking of Peace in all areas of Asia. There is a stepping forward, a voice of peace that will no longer allow itself to be ignored. We as women in North America are set to support these truth speakers by choosing to follow our own hopes and dreams for a connected future. We reach to one another, to share honest stories, to co-create futures for children with opportunities in learning and play that are based on the ‘whole woman’.Media changes with a greater support for the ‘whole woman’ are possible this approaching year. The Blessed Mother is standing at the door, her matrix of life giving energy asking mothers to support and band together, to ask for a future, where relationships with kindness, respect, and safety are not only in the home but in the larger community.

Groups for cultural sharing, artwork, food, peace walks, all are moving forward. The old structures exist but they can change. We are changing them. What people have felt comfortable in sharing about themselves is changing. We are calling the Divine back into comfortable peaceful being in the western society. We speak it, we live it, and we love it into being, and all of the angels the ascended masters, the spirit guides, our ancestors that walk with us, each is raising their hands and voices in support of this transition.

I see a wave of purple and blue light, like a dragon or a stampede of horses rushing across the sky. Michael, carries a sword of light in this energy, just as Shiva, atop his mountain resonates it, these waves of energy that cut through lower energy, the fear and the ‘no I can’t’ ego thoughts. As the fear is destroyed, the love based energy follows like a wave.

The ocean carries large waves this upcoming year. The waves can be used as cleansing, and come with peace, with a gentleness depending on the energy we, as humans are sending towards them. Can we pray together to bring about gentler earth transitions? Yes we can. Can our hope for safety, for sharing resources, light. and love based messages replace fearful mass media? Yes it can. When we in the western world, with our access to the internet, our resources and time are dedicated to spreading hope, love, and light, we can achieve transformation of nations.

What will we choose individually? What will we all choose universally? This is what the universe at large is asking. For our free will cannot be overruled. We can send these messages, we can visualize the cessation of fear mongering, yet we must individually take ownership and make choices that move forward towards Peace.

I believe, with all my soul and being, that we are capable. I see it everyday. The people that I connect with want to talk of a future with peace and sustainability. The children I meet, who are coming with powerful angelic and ascended master knowledge, the retired generations who want to speak of their experience of war, and the value of peace.

This energy for transformation is powerful, it can be all encompassing of our lives when we let it. It is loud, it is boisterous, it is filled with cheering for our fellow humans, and it has the power to change everything.

An offering of prayer and meditation for those wishing to share their blessings:

“Divine Consciousness please send me the assistance of White Buffalo Calf Woman, Quan Yin, Aphrodite, Lord Krishna, Durga and Archangel Uriel. Please allow these rainbow hues of light to cut through all fear based energy I have at this time. Please send me the unique resonance of Peace, Compassion, Love, Devotion, Courage and Illumination so that I may see, speak, feel and express my Highest Soul purpose on the planet. Please help me to connect with new people, across and around the globe who are resonating with these same qualities and to build friendships, partnerships and cooperatives that manifest these qualities on a personal, local and global scale. Thank you for this assistance, for sending me messages I can clearly understand and encouraging me to follow my own inner knowing. With faith, and thanks, Amen, Om, and Aho.”

With all of you who hope, who act, and how are seeking, speaking and moving with truth, integrity and compassion, I salute you, I thank you. Yay 2015! I can’t wait to be a part of this new weaving together!

with light, Kamia
