Unity Through Clarity of Self and Relationship

(This Blogpost was/is a Weekly Forecast for Aug 11th to Aug 18th that expanded)

Unity can be perceived and practiced in many different ways. We can find a unity of self through accepting the many levels of being we are currently working to assimilate into wholeness; the feelings we carry and the mental balance we seek to categorize or synthesize with our spiritual understanding.  We may find unity in physical movement that draws us completely into being present, our spiritual self relaxing into the meditation of ebb and flow, so that we experience the ecstasy of divine source and incarnated self.  We may feel unified in our understanding of one another’s  needs and dreams, in a common goal or prayer for the future.And yet, we may also find that to be unified int he self requires time and sacred space to be present fully with our own transformation, and that to do so requires etheric space from shared unity with others in certain ways.

Relationships shift as we each choose or do not choose to feel and share unification. Yet in this broadcasting or connective aspect of life, we are better suited to clearly identifying that which is Divinely healthful at this time, when we have boundaries that allow us to perceive our now experience, and then share through Clarity of personal light, with others. Many people on the planet are not raised to have a clear boundary of energy that separates them from the emotional, spiritual, mental and sometimes physical empathetic experience of the world at large.  As the many layers of being and manifest reality bombard the senses that one has either sought to block or dampen as a survival technique, the debris of many thousands of experiences can pile up like dust over our trust in the value of our particular receptive qualities. This multilayered karmic debris can feel uncomfortable or heavy, and without the proper tools of understanding, people  may seek to block their sensitivity in many ways depending on their life experience during formative years.  Some find dampening of reception in addictions of many kinds, yet actual Peace and relief that is sought for, can never truly be found without self acceptance and often hard work through healing. Cleaning and clearing allows us to stream in Divine Source and support for a rich understanding of that which unifies us as humans and sentient beings, that which is our individual learning experience and that which may be entirely another’s journey that we can send a prayer or a thoughtful action of support towards, yet do not need to experience in all ways ourselves.  We may Love a person who is currently in a self destructive cycle.  We may find that a cause, job, friendship or group we felt very passionately about has taught us all we needed at this time in our life and seek to move into a fresh focused state of personal evolution.  In shifting or changing focus, in wishing to move away from lessons or patterns that no longer serve our highest healthful good, we may feel the need for personal unification and communication with another on the Spirit Realm. If it I through shifting a relationship so that personal unification can occur, then here is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

There is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

Out in Nature I visualize a globe of light surrounding my body and self, to filter out all lower vibrations of fear or anger, or distractions. (Visit “Boundaries and Personal Power from Soul Evolution for a more expanded explanation) From the globe of light, I ask for divine assistance in communicating with the greater Light body of the person I am working alongside,  and from within that globe I send out actually words, Love, forgiveness, communication in emotional release or encouragement, or whatever other aspect of being seeks to be clearer.  Whether there is a shift on the physical level immediately with the relationship, or whether there is simply an incredible sense of freedom and relief on the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects depends on the Free Will choices of both parties.  This is not a practice that controls another, and will afford no change unless done with an intention for the greatest healing and clearing for both parties concerned.  I Clean and Clear this way often, and am always so deeply grateful for the Love and depth of understanding the follow’s in my own consciousness and in the energy field I have been connecting to of another.  

“An affirmation and prayer I have found useful during many past-life relationship interactions:

“Dear Creator/God/dess, please help me to see clearly the ways in which a past life with this person is influencing our present interaction. Please send me clear dreams or messages to help me understand how we can mutually heal from the karma we have jointly created. Please send Archangel Michael to cut any chords of fear that attach us from this or any previous lifetimes so that only the light of Divine Love remains between us. I ask that healing on all levels occur at this time, and should our lives now take separate pathways, I ask that we do so with Angelic assistance and forgiveness on a Soul level. Please send the loving compassionate energy of Quan Yin, Archangel Raphael and Jesus to help us to individually and universally heal. Thank you. Amen. Om. Aho.”

Excerpt From: Kamia Shepherd. “Soul Evolution.” iBooks. 

May this week be a clarification of communication on the highest level of Love and Divine Source with heightened boundaries so that we share only that which we consciously seek to elevate on a universal scale for the highest good of ourselves and humanity and this sacred planet as a whole.

Amen, Om and Aho.

With Light,

Kamia

Dream States and the Edge of Consciousness

As with all sentient beings, we act as a type of ‘filter’ for divine source.  We see and reflect, refract and transmutes the divine source, the fabric of the manifest universe, that is birthed into matter, and light, and wisdom and collective unconscious.  We can purify the filters over the course of a thousand lifetimes, to ‘see’ or perceive in incredible ways.  We may also incarnate and have the ability to ‘see’ through multiple levels of reality after carrying light in a specific way from only a few lifetimes.  

Each person is capable of offering their particular aspect of light expansion, in their own unique way.  One personas beauty does not cancel out the beauty of another persons entirely different and still valuable, gifts. Indeed, some of the very opposite in perception can weave together beautifully to create a framework, or tapestry of thought and possibility that deeply benefits the world at large.  Physically minded or spiritually minded, emotionally sensitive, or mentally focused, together each can offer explanations that deepen another individuals connection to their life path by helping to activate cultural or spiritual Memory for a more empowered sense of belonging and compassion.

We all have ways that we ultimately allow for a relaxation of the mind, to create space for heightened sensitivities on the spiritual realm. When I focus my clairvoyance, to ‘look’ and to ‘see’ when someone has asked me for guidance, it is a relaxation of the mind not a huge effortful push.  Like a person who is drifting off into a renewing slumber, we can relax into the navigation of different levels of consciousness.  Relaxation does not mean the same thing for every individual.  Relaxation for one might only happen when intense physical activity has occurred.  In the expression of adrenalin, they open up a space within the consciousness mind to feel ‘safe’ directly afterwards or during, because truly being relaxed for that person might actually equate to physical strength  as indications of safety.  Another may find a pathway through to their akashic record or wisdom through deep mediation in solitude.  In a space with no other humans, they commune with nature, and in this manner can ‘relax’ into opening up their inherent sensitivities such as clairaudience or clairsentience. 

 For those whom are seeking to begin a new cycle of connecting with their particular gifts, I offer the following as gentle suggestions to be explored. *Encouraging each reader to allow their instinctive understanding of their most powerful pathways of self to be their guides, your way may already be more effective for you than the below suggestions.*

1.) Identify when one is truly relaxed.  Is it a relaxation of the physical body that we equate with sensitivity, or is it a pathway that we honour or ignore in another aspect of being?  When do we notice/connect that the reception of our 6th sense was heightened.  For example, when travelling in other countries, because I am not often distracted by my native language, I am more relaxed in ‘listening’ with all of my senses to understand what the emotional, mental or physical climate of my direct surroundings are.  In many ways I would not have equated travelling alone through countries of vast cultural differences as relaxing, and yet with self analysis I can acknowledge that this is so.

2.) Allow for the possibility of this same ‘relaxation’ into conscious expanded reception with clear energy boundaries.  Many people with heightened sensitivities are afraid that in being ‘open’ they will attract harmful and fearful experiences.  This is a valid fear.  A relatable example of this is when we choose to close a door at our physical house, so that we can safely clean, cook and fulfill responsible action.  We do so to indicate to the world at large that they are not welcome without invitation.  For anyone opening gently their psychic perceptions, it is incredibly important to do so in manner that is ‘safe’ with energy boundaries in place.  For further reading on how to create healthful boundaries visit blogpost: Boundaries and Personal Power

3.) Practice.  Practice with recording ones perceptions, practice compassion for the self when it feels unfamiliar to be that trusting of intuitive information.  Practice encouraging those in our lives to trust themselves and their instincts, to learn hard or soft lessons, to take chances in verbally or artistically expressing their heightened natural perceptions.  We all have our own unique path to dance, or climb or fight or meditate through.  We get to be uniquely beautiful in all the stages.

4.) Honestly review what amount of time during ones day or week feels as though it has honoured the perceptions one carries.  Do we allow ourselves to be relaxed and receiving of divine source and guidance every day?  Once a week? Only in times of tragedy?  How does that allotment of ‘time’ or reception sit with us and the goals we hold for a compassionate view of ourselves and our world?  Again there is no ‘right’ time allotment. Some people will live a very fulfilling life having experienced one divinely connected moment for their entire incarnation.  Others will seek expanded levels of consciousness daily.  We get to determine what feels ‘right’ for us in this lifetime, and through the Law of Free Will, we get to change that pattern if after a span of months or years or generations, we are ready for something else.

5.) Keep a sense of humour. Without humour I would never have truly accepted my gifts.  I can laugh at myself and the world.  I can laugh with delight, with outrage with sorrow and with joy.  The movement of the diaphragm during laughter helps to stimulate the third chakra, the power centre at the navel.  Be powerful, clear the energy in the room, space, family or workplace.  Spiritual perceptions can be incredibly serious, but they can also have the beauty of lightheartedness as we explore and practice.

A prayer that I have found useful for those who notice the vibrational shift when affirming/praying aloud is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for this life.  Help me to see myself and my evolution as a tool that amplifies the compassionate experience and unfolding in connection to the world at large, of our greater collective unconscious.  Thank you for helping me to expand my energy field to feel more rooted to this planet, so that as I open etherically, I do so with balance through my feet and being on this wondrous planet.  Please help me to find ways to express this unfolding, in service to mass consciousness and to the earth, the planet, the animals, other people, my family and community and my own individual experience.  Please help me to shield from lower vibrations that distract from Divine Love, and to feel connected {every day, once a month, during the year} as is most healthful for me at this time. Thank you for this assistance on every level, Amen, Om and Aho.”

At the edges of our conscious mind we are each consistently receiving waves of energy.  Some are lower frequency and may have fear associated with them.  Some are bright and light and beautiful and help us to see the potential for mankind on this planet.  Like radio stations we tune into, we are each a filter for the energy that pervades the manifest universe.  What are the ways we are all filtering and receiving and sharing for this new shift of time and purpose?  What aspects of the Divine do we openly allow to infuse our energy body and beam out towards the world at large?

This year, may we each make conscious choices about the ways we are conduits of Light,

With respect and appreciation for all those who are shining,

Trees and Ancient Wisdom

What does the gift of a tree offer us on the etheric level?  We are all empowered to explore that devotion of meditative, transcendental energy.  Trees hold the history and ability to transcend different levels of being.  Their roots teach us of that which exists and anchors us bellow the surface of our own conscious minds.  Their core, the heart and trunk that grows and lives with sap beneath the surface, is so very like our own skin, holding our physical being enclosed and protected as the systems of life occur within our cells.  The branches reach to the light, even as the crown chakra , is every receiving the energy of the manifest universe, the potential to extend up beyond that which we see with physical being, and recharge from Divine Source.  When I began meditating with trees, I was a child.  I would hug close to my heart the ancient being and ‘ask’ to be shown the wisdom of their sentience.  Through the communion of trees, my clairvoyance would expand.  I would see how my rhythms of heart and my energy body would align with the patience of the tree, how the act of being close, and connecting my central nervous system in some manner with the stillness of the rooted being, brought about a deeper sense of calm, of timelessness.  I learned to see that which frustrated or annoyed or was fearful, as so small, in the vastness of season change, the warmth of sun and the exhilaration of wind. When I am in communion in this way, I feel bands of gold light connecting my chakras through my spine, to the centre of the tree.  I become aware of the way my energy body is opening ‘wings’ and gathering wind, sun, light, earth, and water.  With respect, I return to ones that resonate with Peace during times of duress.  Within every living being, is a lesson a teaching and a gift.  What will we develop in ourselves and this world at large through a devotion of time and energy to connecting and learning from other sentient beings? Meditation can be a sinking in, yet over time, it also is an expanding outwards, beyond the confines of physical self, to a deep appreciating for the hearts that beat within us, and the Soul that is so very vast and connected to Light in every direction through multiple dimensions.

On  a recent trip to India, I had the privilege and honour of being present for the planting of shoots, seedlings, from the bodhi tree that Buddha sat beneath during his realization of enlightenment.  The tree, like all living beings who’s life spans recreate themselves through time, carried the energy resonance of that moment, as well as an imprint of the potential shelter or safe haven for spiritual seekers should they choose to seek in a similar way. When I placed my hands at the base of the seedling honoured as the spirit of Truth, the image of three seedlings having the potential to weave together into a gentle dome, that invited in the awakening through heart chakra and crown charka energy, of those who sat within the dome was such that I am encouraged to share my gathered ‘Tree’ perceptions in the following manner:

For those that feel drawn to exploring the healing power of trees spiritually, to learn to explore individual gifts for being rooted into this present life, yet looking through a window of Soul into past lifetimes, and the approaching cycles of light that we may concrete in our future, I offer this simple practice:

Begin the day with gentle movement before stillness, this could be a walk int he sunrise, or gentle yoga, or even sitting and practicing neck rolls, anything that is a natural extension of the ways in which we are each drawn to connect with our physical anchor of self. We acknowledge and honour the body to create a safe harbour for our Spirit.

Breathing fully, visualize oneself as a tree.  The tree may always be the same, or it may change daily.  What flow of energy, feeling, sensation or being do we light heartedly invite?  Do we notice we are weighed down by a ‘load’ of some kind?  Are we reaching outwards with giant branches? Or are we a sapling just beginning?  In the process of developing and refining self awareness, what we each gather from practicing a simple visualization can be very rich.  Having noticed if our tree had creature living around or connected to it, what do we do with our observations?  Do we journal them down, so that further reflection can unfold? Or discuss with a loved one who is open to practising the same gentle exercise?

Sometime through out the day, visit a tree. A prayer that I use is:

“Thank you Divine Source for the bounty of Nature that offers us all so many gifts.  Please allow me to connect in a healing and compassionate way with the wisdom of this forest, and this particular tree, to see, feel and hear that which can be of the greatest service to myself and the world at large, at this time.  Thank you Amen, Oma and Aho.”

It can be that we practice in a forest, or in a meditative state.  What tree holds particular significance for our energy field expansion? To connect with a tree that holds personal Power anywhere on the globe can be done in deep levels of meditation, or it can be physically connecting through a hug, a hand placed against, or leaning with ones spine alongside a local tree.  As sensitivity develops, as we each release the ego or fear based thought patterns that may block our receptive qualities, we may find that the Self connects in new or very ancient ways with the energy source of a tree. If the meditation expansion to an alternate place was chosen, make space to visit a local tree for at least 4mins of communion to anchor the experience. Thank the tree for any wisdom gathered, shared or remembered.

*This is a simple and beautiful practise that can be shared with our children and loved ones. Sometimes we may feel the natural creative manifestation to draw paint or otherwise depict ‘our’ Tree of self.  When we work with e spiritual unfolding, it is a gift we can give ourselves and the world at large to bring forth in a creative fashion, that which we have learned spiritually.

May we be like and connected with the Trees.  May we grow and receive, and grow some more, and leave the seeds of our deepest levels of Compassion, for future generations to grow alongside.

With light and respect for ancient, new or evolving cultures reverence for sacred Trees,

Moving through Barriers, Lightening our Etheric Loads

We each carry energy with us until we are ready to process it or share it ,for individual, mutual or communal healing.  On the spiritual level, peoples auras and energy bodies shift and change.  Picking up pieces of memory from one another, from different places on the planet, or during astral travel.  We all learn, through uncovering  new levels of personal consciousness, in direct relation to our feelings surrounding ‘safety,’ and empowerment. There can be moments in Life in which we may find, we suddenly feel as though a physical load has been removed from our bodies, and yet there has been no removal of an actual cloth and metal frame back-pack, from our physical life.  Energy burdens, lessons, the connections we choose in support of one another, as well as the heavy karmic debris we work through in each lifetime, can have a very physical ‘feel’ of alleviation when we have mastered or completed a particular etheric lesson, pattern or shift.

Those who are highly sensitive, who feel comfortable, or continue to seek in their spiritual unfolding, become adept at the shedding and gathering, and eventually the dismissal of these energy loads as time and life allows. We all experience moments of heaviness on the etheric level, sometimes as we carry another person, or a room full of people or an entire family.  Yet we are all capable of moving through barriers or obstacles that feel as though they are physically present, to realize that everyone on their own experience of life, is entirely capable of carrying themselves. Even the brightest of spirits benefit from time in sacred space, contemplation and can go through long years of exploration on a deeper level that feels very heavy as they clear multiple lifetimes, and genetically transferred patterns passed down through multiple generations of ancestors.  

For highly sensitive Souls, there may come a time in which we may feel an impulse  to ‘see’ the truth of ourselves and our current reality, and yet feel as if we are blocked by a heavy energy from our past in this or previous lives.  Sometimes barriers that we ‘sense’ to our ability to perceive on multiple levels, are in place because they are keeping us safe in some way.  Opening to our gifts of clairvoyance, claircognition, clairaudience and clairsentience, may not need to happen instantaneously.  If we were to know all, or see all, at once however, on all of the other levels of self, we would require immense time, space and emotional safety to be ready to process and assimilate this knowledge.  An example of a barrier I ‘sensed’ in a close family relationship, as discussed in ‘Soul Evolution’ Chapter 2, related to a familiar theme many light workers carry of a past life memory of persecution.  To work through this energy block, I needed time and space and age to processes painful feelings of loss and betrayal attached to that lifetime. Yet when I had the sacred space needed, I was able to move through that resonance, through a clairvoyant dream. Quite quickly, I was then able to see the valuable beauty and lessons I could bring forward to lighten my own energy and the communal energy of so many through healing that aspect of soul memory. Yet for myself, time alone at a particular age, was what I had been ‘waiting for’ to lighten my personal load and ‘see’ on a new level.  Through patience and discipline in the spiritual practice that resonates most with us at this time, we all have the power to begin/continue to ‘see’ in new ways.  Yet we shift the energy instinctively at a speed that is healthful for our mental, emotional and physical integrations.

A Prayer/Affirmation/ Mantra that I have found useful in the past when seeking to move beyond personal or perceived barriers on the etheric level is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, Godd/ess of Creation, please help my Higher Self be amplified in conscious present at this time.  Please surround me in the protective light of the highest resonance, through which on Love may enter and all fear based vibrations are held at bay.  Please send me clear messages through feelings, sight, sound and spontaneous understanding surrounding {describe relationship/situation/perceived barrier} I ask that all karmic debris be cleared in the most gentle manner for my personal sense of Empowerment and healing at this time. Please send empowering light through the Guardian Angels of those who effect me at this time, so that they too, may remember they have choices for personal well being and knowledge.  I am willing and ready to Heal in the ways that I need, and to share messages of healing with others through dedication to my own authenticity and unfolding.  Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

Every person on the planet is a powerful healer in their own right. We all have the power to  shift in consciousness personally.  We all have the power to encourage others to seek personal awareness, empowerment and unfolding.  It is okay to acknowledge that paths we take may differ from those we Love, have loved or will love in the future.  To support their personal speed for enlightenment, or seeking new levels of consciousness.  Through the wheel of time, the many lifetimes we may choose to cycle through, we will all have multiple opportunities to ‘lighten’ our personal spiritual loads, to move beyond barriers on each level of being and to offer a helping hand to another.  Just as given time, water flowing  changes the shape of rocks and stones irrevocably, so too do lives lived in devotion to authentic being, change the experience of the following lifetimes, of the children whom carry the familial genetic code that follows, and to a world that is slow, slowly evolving with Compassion and Potential ever day.  

With patience for ourselves and one another,

With light,

Will and the Word

Energy healers, shamans, medicine people, light workers, and the teachers of many ancient spiritual mysteries, were aware of the power of intent and Personal Will.
Through my clairvoyant perceptions, the Law of Free Will when utilized, looks like strands of energy woven together that surrounds each individual. When able to harness our core essence, and project it outwards into such a light web, we create a safety net and personal boundary framework to filter out that which we are not willing to attract, and to amplify and welcome energy one has chosen to draw towards the self and into the Soul Path.
Through a belief in free will, we are able to choose different pathways, renegotiate said pathway, turn around and climb a few stairs to a new trail, or meander in any direction along our Soul Path. The concept of ‘The Law of Free Will’ is a popular term in current spiritual teachings. The law of Free Will dictates that in our current incarnations, we have multiple potentials for making a wide variety of choices that bring us closer to, or further away from, our core resonance and Divine gifts.

Willpower is a very real tool for etheric levels of creation. If one has a strong connection to ones core, the ‘Will’ broadcasts an equally strong framework/web/ safety net of all that which one has chosen or continues to choose in the future. The words that we think or choose to voice have as much power as we give them. For example, we can infuse the words ‘I Love You’ with incredible energy and power to change another perceptions of the light that is offered them the manifest universe. When we make a conscious choice, and give voice through prayer in our minds/hearts, written word, or speaking out loud, we create an energy field that honours that choice. Perhaps it will take an individual years of practice to connect with their internal power source, their core essence, or perhaps a person will incarnate with intuitive trust in utilizing this will. It is through directing our Will that we may choose to learn in a new way, to navigate massive life changes with struggle or harmony. For example, a pattern of repeating words in our head, whether in self support or criticism, clearly emits on the etheric level, and often manifests as a self fulfilling prophecy either for positive or negative manifestation and attraction.

To maintain the power of the framework we have set, we can choose to maintain commitment of personal will whenever thoughts or challenges, surrounding a choice surface. A person could for example choose to draw upon their core essence, and the power source of the divine networked of lIght, God/dess, to create a framework of ‘I will only attract positive opportunities for career/relationship/personal health development.’ The power of this statement relays on the power of the persons personal Will to build the framework that filters or amplifies. The framework is supported by the actions that also support each opportunity for growth.

For those who seek to identify current patterns, to renegotiate energy exchange and to voice their personal Will through words of power, I first allow my senses to unfold and to visualize myself within a pillar of white light. (White light is a powerful way to hold all external energy at bay, while the internal self re-configures and grounds into empowered being.) Once incased in white light, through the power of Will one can use a prayer/mantra/affirmation such as this:

“I call on the Divine Source to infuse my being with clarity and wisdom. To identify the patterns of manifestation, personal self worth and potential that I carry within my subconscious and conscious being. Please send the light of Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through fear based self fulfilling prophecies, so that more space is available in my energy body to be infused with empowered light. I am ready to grow and will approach this growth with courage and resilience. Thank you God/dess for guiding my new levels of awareness in a healthful and easily assimilated manner, and for opening new levels of consciousness through clairvoyance, clairaudiance, claircognition and clairsentience that remind me of all of the choices I may Freely make. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

We are each asked to clearly identify the current patterns and energy field we are broadcasting on a deep level. Do we truly believe we deserve to fail due to circumstances in adolescence or previous decades? Do we choose to take the steps towards our ultimate goals through struggle, with the will to persevere? Do we actually allow our true sense of personal Power, our Will, to be present in all of our decision making? Or are we giving our personal power away to an external force, another person, or self destructive familiar pattern?

What do we each ‘see’ or ‘feel’ is revealed through this devotion of energy and focus to truly perceiving our current life choices? What empowered aspects of self do we now choose to honour or courageously step forward towards? Ancient cultures fostered dreamers, those who could see beyond the physical, to the potential of what had been, could be or might be through the Will and focus of individuals or the masses. What does our individual heightened awareness allow us to Dream for humanity as a whole?
We are all powerful beings, especially when we give ourselves permission to trust the incredible power of our core self, and to direct this with our Free Will to affect personal and cosmic change.

May we each remember to be powerful,
with light,

*Fostering imagination and expansive thought can be a powerful tool towards self empowerment as an energy worker. I was battling my way through adolescence towards elf acceptance, I loved to visit the walls of books one of my siblings had amassed. From floor to ceiling, shelves held the precious colourful escape, many highly sensitive individuals seek when attempting to synthesis their multi-dimensional perceptions with the current culturally accepted ‘world’. Fantasy books are filled with gems of wisdom; energy work, commitment to a heroines or hero’s quest towards personal enlightenment, struggle, loss, colour and magical spirit guides in the forms of mythical creatures and landscapes. The phrase “The Will and the Word’ often appears in the delightful fantasy series ‘The Belgariad’ by David Eddings.

Awakening to the Art of Letting Go

I often think of life as an experience of gathering tools. Challenge, heartbreak, euphoria and Grace flowing through and around us. It is in the times in life in which new tools must be unearthed that we can gain some of our greatest capacity as light beings, Soul’s, having a human incarnation. We do not forge these so called tools, the prayerful spiritual, or physical, mental, or emotional manners of navigating reality by having a perfectly ‘ease-filled’ life. In life changing cycles, we may find that our previous manner of navigating has become inadequate and that our core self is seeking reveal an expanded level of consciousness. We may find that we are holding to tightly to tools that have worked in the past to help us regain a semblance of security or understanding.

We become more empowered humans when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge where we are truly ‘feeling’ and existing in the course of our life. We may have long years of self doubt, that finally ebb away with the changing of seasons, into a more peaceful or joyous experience. We may have reoccurring life themes, similar relationships that we recreate over and over, as the tools we seek to finally unearth within us need fine tuning. All of it is valuable. The times we felt we let ourselves or others down, the times we offered help or kindness, and hold close in our heart. It is all the grand experience of incarnated life.

When a person is in the midst of a new phase, a tool box building phase, it is spiritually normal to feel as if the receptive quality one is most familiar with has ‘stalled’. The clairvoyant may feel as thought they are having difficulty ‘seeing’. The clairaudient may develop a very physical ringing in their ears. The clairsentient may feel numb to reception of empathetic information. And the claircogniziant may wonder where all of their inspired, problem solving ideas have disappeared too.

During these times, we are asked to be extremely gentle and kind with ourselves. To allow that sometimes, in a transition, during an integration period of a new level of being or consciousness, the changes occurring on the spiritual or etheric level are so momentously large, that we will ‘re-boot’ so to speak with an entirely new operating system, and perception of this life.
For those that are currently feeling as though the compass that was guiding them has disappeared, I offer this prayer/affirmation/mantra:

“Dear God/ess, Sacred Earth and Divine Source, please help me to feel connected to this planet and myself. Even as a seed cracks wide, and pushes towards the light, please help me to feel that my current stage of growth is being guided by my higher Self, the Divine Source and my gifts for this Soul Path. Thank you for helping me feel the wisdom carried through the wind, of far off places, of other people that grow and evolve, even as I endeavour to do so. Thank you for helping my feet feel the warmth and the power of the soil beneath my feet, to remind me that I am rooted and safe. Thank you for helping me feel the light of the sun, mirroring the life force and fire I carry in my being, and for bringing the healing waters, whether through rain, or tears, or a flowing river to teach me to let go of that which I no longer need to carry. Thank you, Amen, Om, Aho.”

After saying, or thinking this prayer, or a version like it, that resonates with us each at this time, we are invited by the Divine Source to truly, deeply, Let Go. Let go of our expectations of perfection, or timelines, or self imposed manners of being devoted, or caring ‘enough,’ of control, grief or fear or insecurity. Let it all go, like a gently flowing river, or an effortless waterfall that plummets through space. Sometimes, when we allow ourselves a few minutes without holding tightly, we are able to discover the vast space within us filling up with new levels of Divine Source, of colour, light, nourishment, Peace or personal understanding for what can be most healthy/healing for us next.

I can remember that during travels around the globe, I would often return to my home town and feel like a completely ‘different’ person, from the woman I had been six months beforehand. Being immersed in foreign cultures and landscapes, from the food and languages I didn’t recognize, the manner of living that was so entirely different from the western culture, something would flower within my being, and my perception of life at ‘home’ would be irrevocably different. I did not always feel like my previous tools were ‘enough’ for each situation I encountered, but I had deep faith that I could forge, build and uncover new tools each time. I practiced the Art of Letting Go of preconceived ideologies, identity and coping. These shifts of consciousness helped me to become the woman I am, the one who can offer a gentle word of encouragement to others while they go through transformative experiences, rebirths, challenges or euphoric joy. We all can choose to continue to embrace the growth and development of healthy tools this wondrous life offers. To feel sorrow, or joy, or anger, or fear, or wonder or awe or Love, and to learn more. We never stop learning, even with our final breaths in these sensitive physical bodies, I truly believe, we learn once more, a new level, understanding and perspective on our Soul’s journey.

May we each feel the blossoming of spring, and find the patience we need through each new lesson of self, for deeper levels of Compassionate Being.

Pathways of Compassionate Light

“Coming to the earth plane is a soul level choice that we have all made during our cosmic evolution as incarnated beings at this time. The common threads of light that connect us are brilliant hues of varying vibrations, which have at their center the highest vibration: that of Divine Love. Although many will connect to Divine Love through the modality of different religions with varying names and manners of prayers, I truly believe that when we are connected to God/dess, what we are connecting to is the same radiance, the same light that permeates the universe and shines within us all; what people then choose to do with their inner light, is, of course, governed by the Law of Free Will. We all are given choices daily and throughout our lives to direct our light with free will. This theme repeats in many religions: when in communion with the highest manifestation of Love, we contribute most to the overall positive evolution of our individual lives, our communities, our species and the planet as a whole.
This book is a manifestation of my communion with my Higher Self, the cosmic universe as I perceive it at this time and a desire to communicate an affirmation of our capacity as humans to share in a daily realization of our souls’ ability to radiate and attract Love to the benefit of both soul path growth and universal blessings. In simple speak, this book is an exploration of each individual’s worthiness and capacity to be loved and express love to others. For ‘love’ is a word used daily in the ‘readings’ that I have facilitated for others and the messages I receive from the Angels most often is of teaching and encouraging others to love themselves and therefore share Love with the universe. It is the most prevalent and the ‘loudest’ message of them all.
Compassion and love for the self affords opportunities to heal our etheric, emotional, mental and physical bodies. Often people carry around an energy mantra of I am undeserving. This creates an energy field based on lack and so the energy of the universe that vibrates alongside the person is unbalanced and dim. To connect with pathways of compassionate light is to clear the energy field of the self with positive messages, such as: I can, I will, I deserve. This sends out a ‘chord’ of light to the universe that seeks to connect with the energy matrix uniting all living things: the mountains, the ocean, people, animals and the cosmos at large. Through being kind first to ourselves, feeding our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical bodies with positive energy and messages, we are able to become an intersection of light that is both supported and aids in sustaining the overall vibration of the universe. The Angels, Ascended Masters and our myriad array of Helpers from the Divine want us to love our Selves so deeply and truly that each cell in our magnificent body begins to vibrate with Love. This is the brightest, loudest, most powerful vibration. We cannot send out these powerful vibrations when we are feeding our own psyche with negative based thoughts. When we invest in ourselves with self-kindness, encouragement, compassion and grace, this personal loving care becomes an investment in the universe at large.”

“May all who read this be reminded daily that your Angels, Guides, Helpers, Higher Self and connection to God/dess is true and pure and that you are a manifestation of Divine Love in every cell of your body.
In offering of this recognition of the light within us all, I would like to share this affirmation that I have found useful for connecting to my Higher Self and the Light within the Universe:

“Dear Universal Consciousness, Archangels, Guardian Angels, Gods and Goddesses, Ascended Masters and Spirits of the Earth, please help me to recognize the light within others, let me perceive their highest vibrational potential so that I may be reminded of my own highest truth.”

Another variation of this affirmation is:

“May I speak, perceive and be a conduit of universal Love in all my actions, and may I forgive myself for the actions as a human that have filled me with guilt or fear, so that in releasing these fears, I make greater space for Love in all that I do. Help me [God/dess, Angels or the Ascended Master you feel most connected to at this time], on all levels to remain grounded into this present reality and incarnation so that I am able to manifest this Love on the physical plane. Amen. Om and Thanks.”

The Inner Marriage for Healthful Relationships

We all have a divine masculine and feminine aspect of self. We carry the capacity for these qualities to exist in sacred union within our core. Like an inner marriage, or a spiral of light the two qualities of our being combine to create a central power source that feeds and fuels our life experience, past lives and future incarnations.

This aspect of being on the internal level, the etheric union of self, is mirrored and explored through the relationships that we encounter on the physical plane. Seeking to find a balanced level of divine masculine or feminine self, we will often attract partners, relationships and connections that offer learning and growth. Our highest level of being, our Soul, seeks to filter our natural divine light into our consciousness in a number of ways. Sometimes our relationship experiences seek to spark our protective, self sustaining, fierce or courageous qualities. Other times we are sent opportunities to explore vulnerabilities, softness, gentleness or humour.

We each have an infinite number of qualities, gifts and experiences we are able to attract during the course of several lifetimes. With the gift of clairvoyance, when working alongside others, and exploring my own previous lives, I often see the ways we are each pass alongside previous soul encounters, past life loves, in our current lifetime. The chords of light that connect us to one another and through time and space, carry the resonance and echoes from past lifetimes. How we approach the interactions in our current lifetimes, will renegotiate the energy exchange both in the present and into future encounters, should we incarnate alongside once more. As a teen/young adult I felt bombarded by past life connections. People who I had died alongside, loved or felt hurt by, appearing in this present life with no ‘memory’ of me. Those learning opportunities, many painful, eventually helped me to clearly create boundaries of what I sought to learn as an adult. Many people experience intense connections throughout the course of their present lives, that are deeply impacted by the past life resonance the two individuals share.

With devotion to self awareness, we are offered ample chances to notice the way the divine masculine self, or feminine aspects of being were encouraged, distracted, or depleted through particular combinations. In adult relationships, many people seek to find their soulmate to experience divine and sacred union. Yet it is in connecting and fostering a union of self, that the wholeness of being, that some attribute to an outside source, is truly celebrated. Once this inner marriage occurs, the Soulmate that help to amplify the inner union of self, is more easily attracted into tones energy field.

Through a union of self, the tone of all other relationships will shift. Through discovering the unique qualities of being that are ones own strengths and nurturing qualities, we are each able to identify the ways other people can encourage, support and be celebrated in their own ways for meaningful and lasting relationships. Marriages of all kinds take constant determination by both parties to be growing, recommitting, and honestly exploring the ways the inner marriage of self, the core power source is radiant or feeling depleted of light. A person may have a fierce inner warrior masculine energy that attracts several partners who seek to explore their own warrior self, yet in all honesty, when finding the mate that is most likely to amplify the balanced self, the person may choose someone with a gentle and healing divine masculine attribute. Together the two energies create a balance of light exchange in union, and with the world at large. In another circumstance, the divine feminine aspect of being may have a powerful knowledge or energy for rebirth, death and regeneration, and attract fiery qualities in relationship that help to feed this intense emotional level of being. Yet in balanced partnership the partner who is most suited to amplifying those gifts may carry a grounded divine feminine light who has gifts for patience instead of fire.

Partners, romantic relationships, and marriages all amplify qualities within the two parties in some way. We may choose on a soul level to wade through the intensity of feeling that comes from exploring imbalance for several years, or lifetimes. Yet we always have the power to choose to devote honest exploration of soul path as individuals and to encourage growth and soul development in the beloved. To honour our need for years or lifetimes alone, or those times in which partnership is most aligned with our being. Some relationships last an eternity, through several lifetimes. The resonance of love and union resurfacing to offer gifts through a casual encounter in one life or a union of decades in another. Yet, through each interaction we can ask ourselves courageously, does being with this person bring forth the gifts I have to share with this planet? In a way that provides space and energy for my partner to also amplify their gifts?

The following are two prayers I often use in committed relationship, in the eternal endeavour to balance a unified self and in honouring my beloved husband:

For union of Divine masculine and feminine qualities in the self:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please send your angels to assist me in uncovering the aspects of self that are in need of the most Love and attention for empowered balance. Please help me to clearly identify the gifts I carry as an individual in a unification of Divine masculine and feminine qualities, to share with this beautiful world. I ask for the assistance of the Archangel Micheal, to cut through chords of fear, as I explore the ways I empower or disempower myself with current life choices. Thank you for the sending the gentle energy of the Divine Feminine in the aspect of Parvati to help me assimilate the ways I am able to nourish and sustain myself through healing, strengthening, self compassion or transformation. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

For renegotiating energy exchange with the beloved:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help a balanced energy of Love and well being on all levels, flow between myself and my partner. Please send the Archangels most attuned to our soul paths at this time, to assist us as individuals in union as we seek to better support one another with the highest vibrations of Love. May we each have the courage, the grace and the compassion to bring out the divine light we foster, for the good of our marriage, our community and the world at large. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

The power of words when prayed, affirmed or spoken aloud, carry the resonance of our intent. If it is with a faith and pure intention that we seek to know ourselves as individuals and to honour the individual journey of our partners, we are better equipped to identify what needs to shift in relationship, either with ourselves or one another to bring about a more balanced flow of energy on the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual plane. If one quality of being or one person in relationship is always the dominant energy, the imbalance will amplify energy that is perhaps not for the highest good of any. It is a constant renegotiation of ones light, core seIf, soul purpose and feelings of deservedness for joy, that we each must navigate. Yet we are all multidimensional beings, capable of balance, of investment and diversity of energy. We can be honest about where our focus must be for partnership balance and health. We are all capable of amplifying our own and one anthers light. May we each choose to find balance within ourselves, and to help create balance in the world at large through relationship.

The Strongest Version of ‘Me’ Asks for Help

I recently taught a writers workshop in which I asked participants to finish the sentence/thought ‘The Strongest Version of Me….” The answers were diverse, remarkable, and poignant. The example I used for my own strongest version, was to discuss the theory that the strongest version of ‘self’ is not an isolated individual, but rather a self that is willing to seek assistance and identify what aspects of friends, family, community, or spiritual support are needed to affect positive change. Identifying that we are in need of assistance does not make us weak or a burden to others, rather it makes us strong, willing to heal, and balanced in self awareness.

On the physical reality this can translate to asking friends or loved ones, or health/wellness professionals to offer a helping hand in thought, action, or emotional encouragement. On the spiritual plane the gift of my clairvoyance allows me to foster awareness of the threads, ribbons and ropes of light that emanate outwards from each individual and connect us to the wider world. Asking for help on the spiritual plane, sends streams of light between individuals and the divine Source.

In the etheric reality I am constantly  ‘asking for assistance’. I attribute this mainly to my own clairvoyant awareness of the etheric reality, and the constant presence of angels, ascended masters, ancestors, fairies, and the Divine I ‘feel’ connected to. I also attribute it to practice and having had someone in my life who lead by example. My mom used to ask her angels to provide the perfect parking place when we went grocery shopping, I used to giggle, then squeal in delight, as invariably, she always found a place directly in front of the door. It was a small matter, to find parking, in the larger scheme of life and the challenges we each face. Yet, if we each can find the good humor to ask for assistance during the simple things, we are better prepared to call for etheric support and assistance during the times in our life where challenges feel insurmountable, grief all encompassing, and isolation from the Divine Love of the universe.IMG_1322

Great or small, the challenges we each overcome daily and throughout our life path, it is through allowing ourselves to seek ‘help’ from physical, emotional, mental and spiritual sources, that we are better able to survive and overcome the challenges.

Many people on the planet are being currently ‘asked’ by their higher selves to commit to a life path with a resonance of “I am worthy.” This can manifest as a willingness to feel worthy for giving and receiving Love, Joy, Abundance, Compassion, and Divine Light. When we choose to embrace a personal life path that celebrates these attributes, massive life changes often occur. For example, people who heal the aspects on the emotional or spiritual level connected to feelings of worthiness for Love, will attract Soul Mate relationships and experience fertility in their lives through career opportunities, pregnancy, or birthing of dreams. People who heal aspects of themselves surrounding worthiness for experiencing Compassion, transform their world view for how they contribute and are vital, needed, and appreciated in the greater world and cosmic reality at large. Though we each will have different levels of fear or karma surrounding our beliefs of self worthiness, we can seek help, assistance and support from but the physical reality and the spiritual as we courageously grow in each direction.12923155_1025759994125922_1666709770043264950_n

On the spiritual level I have experienced incredible levels of healing and awakening through prayer, affirmation and mantra. Two of my favorite prayers/affirmations include:

For Compassion

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send the healing light of Jesus and Quan Yin to help me feel more Compassion towards myself and every living being. Please help me to receive Compassion, so that I am better able to share it with others. I ask that I receive clear messages, images and feelings, that allow me to identify andy ego based patterns that I can release to allow for a greater connection to the Divine within me, and the world and cosmos at large.Thank You, Amen and OM”

For Love

“Dear God/dess, Divine Light Source, please help me to feel connected to the resonance of Divine Love. Please send the Archangels most suited to working alongside my life path, to help me in removing fear or karma blocking this reception and awareness of Love. I ask that the fairy kingdom send me helpers to attract people, animals and plants into my life that will share and receive only the purest Love with me. Thank you for assistance on every level, Amen, OM and Aho.”

On the pathways of personal empowerment, transformation, and self actualization, we can all inspire support and contribute to one another’s journey. To do this, sometimes it requires the ‘strength of self’ to ask for help. In whatever capacity we are all growing, through connections to one another we become a wave of healing and light that moves across the planet.

May we each feel strong, supported, connected and loved at this time.

With light and respect for your journey,
