Balancing the Wheel of Self

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,

Earth Reiki and Barefoot Energy Medicine

IMG_1634

I’ve never had softer feet. They’ve been buffed and massaged to perfection. The hands that massaged them were not actual hands, but the roots, smooth rocks, and the undulations of the dirt trail that winds through the trees behind my house. I’ve been jogging barefoot for the last few months. Each step, landing on the balls of my feet, small steps with intention. Steps without an aim of ‘getting somewhere fast’, but with an intention of connection to the earth and a reactivation of energy exchange between my Self and the earth that is supporting me.

During the spring months, I began to notice a reoccurring theme in my Angel Readings for others. Each time I worked with Archangel Raphael and the fairy kingdom, I ‘saw’ an image of bare feet, pressing into the earth, and the energy exchange of soft gold light for the release of emotions and lower energies. I would like to share this visualization:

Go outside and find a patch of earth that calls to you. People with be drawn to different features, and they can trust that the surface of soft sand, or smooth rock, or moss and damp earth, are just the right combination of element and energy for themselves. Take off your shoes (and socks) and place your bare feet onto the ground. Gently rock forward and back, slight rocking from one foot to the next. This can be accomplished with the assistance of a chair, or standing straight up, or crouched over, hugging your knees. The fun part is to allow instinctually, nature and the inner movements of your body to assert what is needed most.

When you feel ready, close your eyes gently and breathe deeply. Allow the breathing to begin to loosen your muscles and relax you mind. This simple relaxation could be enough for the first few times. You may feel encouraged to open your eyes or continue in meditation, connecting with the sounds, smells, feeling and support of this natural environment you have grounded into.

If you feel guided, consider this visualization:  Gold light is circulating through your body. It flows smoothly, unless there is a place that is retaining a negative emotion, trauma, frustration or other ‘block’. It wants to flow smoothly through your limbs, your cells and each of your chakra’s. The greatest gift of this earth, is that beneath our feet is a similar flow of light. The earth offers itself to help us balance and re-connect the flow of energy. Through our bare feet, there is fresh renewing gold light waiting to enter our bodies, and the earth offers us the gift of release. Allow the soft light to flow in a circular manner. Through the tips of each toe, and the base of the heel, up into the body, revitalizing and flushing away blocks. This light travels to the crown of our heads, and back down, to exit through the center of the foot, like a circular fountain of honey gold light. Cradling our feet, at the ankle, is the healing Archangel Raphael. He smiles and welcomes us to this healing experience. These words, or our own personal variation, can assist us in receiving assistance:

“Please God/dess, send me the assistance of Archangel Raphael to help me ground into the earth, to connect my own personal energy with the rhythms and flow of this beautiful earth, and to release the energy that I am ready to realize, and accept the healing power of new vital energy. I allow that the energy I release will be transformed, just as seeds, and plants are transformed. I ask that all trauma I am carrying, be transformed in this manner, and that the energy that replaces it heals through each cell of this body, mind, heart and spirit. Thank you, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

Simultaneously the energy of Jesus offers the gentle reassurance of white light circling the individual, and gentle hands atop, or resting just slightly above our shoulders. His light is the softest of hues, very protective, yet incredibly respectful and gentle of each of our individual comfort levels and boundaries. He stands a step behind us, whether we sit, stand or crouch and his face is filled with compassion and faith. he knows that the burdens you are ready to release can bring on a cleansing through tears. Jesus understands that there are aspects to the world that bring about frustration, disappointment and deep hurt. He offers his cloak of light as you process that which the earth and Archangel Raphael are aiding in healing and transforming. Jesus sends unconditional love and aids in the illumination of this light though the top of the head, the crown chakra. Words that can assist with this are:

“Please God/dess, thank you for sending me the loving support and healing light of Jesus. I accept the comforting light he sends, and the unconditional Love to transform the energy I carry in my Crown Chakra, and awareness. I am worthy of this light and love. The energy of Jesus assist me in this faith that I am worthy of Love. Thank You, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

As the body assimilates these gifts and changes, it is connected to the greater body of the earth itself. In this manner, the energy is given a globe, a matrix of light to integrate changes, transformation and healing. The Earth has a myriad array of light intersections within and atop her. The body of each individual is a pinnacle of light atop, that when ‘connected’ is magnified and balanced. This earth loves each human. We have made choices as a whole that have not always benefited her, yet still, she reaches up, to welcome our toes, to carry and cradle us through each of her steps. WIth a moment or an evening, or a daily practice, of connecting, we are all offered gifts of healing and greater awareness as caretakers of this light matrix and Earth.

We are all beautiful, growing, healing, changing and transforming extensions of this earth.

With light, and may there be flowers between your toes,

Kamia

Transformation with Archangels Haniel and Ariel

Peeling away the layers of that which we are ready to move beyond, creating space for unfurling of our ‘wings’ of light and expansive growth, it is healthful to feel connected to the earth as well as to our greater Souls.
With the assistance of archangel Ariel, we accept a communion with the earth, with nature and the earth spirits and fairies. Asking for assistance of archangel Haniel, we are able to perceive the higher resonance of our connection to the Divine. With this fostering of awareness of both the anchor of our physical beings and the light that fuels our transformations on this planet, we create a greater opportunity for equilibrium and positive changes in our own lives and the collective unconscious.
With gentleness for our own transformations, and that of the planet, I thank you for joining me.

with light,
Kamia
