Diffusing Anxiety

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tools for Conscious Living

listening to the AUM of creation

I’ve been meditating on the tools available to us all for ‘clear reception’ from the etheric realm. There are natural rhythms that we all experience, where different aspects of the self, the physical, the mental, and the emotional all draw us away from focused etheric reception, into other experiences, lessons and growth. During times, where some of these other aspects, seem all encompassing, it can be helpful to remember some of the tools that are available for creating a framework on the spiritual plane of existence, that allows for clarity in reception of the supportive, helpful and love based messages of the highest vibrations, that are in existence each and every day for us all.

One of the simplest tools is through intentional thought. Simply think and allow for assistance from the myriad array of etheric helpers who have chosen to work with each of us on our life path. Each of us works in conjunction with guardian angels, ascended masters, archangels, spirit helpers, fairy and earth beings, and the divine god/dess force of the universe.The thought can be as simple as:

“Please God/dess force, send me assistance for clear reception today. Thank you.”

If what follows is a feeling, an image, or an idea for action such as walk in nature, an epsom salt bath, a high vibrational juice or food, time with a loved one or beloved animal, a particular color of clothing to wear, or journalling, sound creation, or artwork, consider your intentional thought effective. These are the first ‘clearly received messages’ with the assistance of your guides. Intentional thought is always effective. We may not receive the assistance in the manner we had expected, but we will receive clearer messages on further tools for our personal alignment.

Today I am working with the clear beaming blue silver radiance of the Christ Consciousness, a high vibrational resonance that is beaming with intensified directness towards and around this earth at this time. As written in the previous blogpost, the Christ Consciousness in my perception is the light and Soul Group energy that Jesus embodied during his life walk, yet it is not confined to that particular incarnation or ascended master. When I ‘look’ at the framework of light that connects souls and the cosmos at large, the Christ Consciousness is a fiery white light, with blue undertones closer to the planet, that carries aspects of the divine masculine force of the universe and weaves souls, gridlines, cosmic mandalas (such as the flower of life), and human incarnations to the etheric realm.

People on the plant have both a physical body, as well as a spiritual signature. The light that is radiated by individual beings extends out into the etheric realm in a unique vibration that has tones of both the present life experience, as well as the tones or vibrations of the greater Soul experiencing the life path, and the paths that have been experienced before. I see the Christ Consciousness as the tone that resonates as an additional ‘rope’ connecting the physical being and the etheric being like a bridge, or anchor.

This light, that works with us, is moving into a more discernible ‘brightness’ or ‘sound’ for each of us. The karmic shifting on the planet over the last two years, is allowing the spiritual realm to be ‘closer’ in the universal consciousness than in many generations and years past on this planet. Though we are often shown images of despair and destruction on the planet, people on a mass scale are also radiating with levels of loving intention, consciousness for peaceful change, and intentions for co-created sustainable future on a global scale that has not yet been seen on this planet. In previous ages and dimensions of this planet, there has been a dichotomy of fear based and love based intentions. These still exist, but where they were divided in places of history where entire races of people were dedicating life paths to one or the other, humanity has evolved to a place where we are each given choices daily to choose love or fear. We, the human race, is no longer locked into a pattern of one or the other for an entire lifespan. We are all capable of changing the course of our lives, every single day.

On a grander scale this means, that at any time, any individual, group, community, government or country can choice to work with love based intentions. It gives the planet an incredible opportunity to drastically change within the span of each day. Like waves rising from the ocean, we are each able to become apart of the wave, to rush forward with power intensity towards anything and everything we wish to effect.

Consider the power of one kind action in our day. The kind action can begin for ourself. We choose to start the day with a thought, an etheric tool such as a positive affirmation like:

“Today I will receive assistance from the Christ Consciousness in connecting with my Courage to speak about love, and that which truly matters to me in this life”.

That intention, has directed the building wave of our/your day to follow the energetic framework outlined by a single thought. This does not mean obstacles may not arise during the day, but with a continued choice to work with ones guides, higher self, and courage, the day will build intensity in the manner in which the soul/person has chosen. As a person continues forward, passing near others, the vibration they emit with such an intention has an effect on others. Other people in encountering this vibration, are given their own choice. Will they begin to raise their vibration to match, will they choose to also work with the courage of self, their own unique gifts, and truth for the world? Or will they reject the wave of energy, dig their heels in and decide “not now”? Either choice is made with free will.

The Christ Consciousness, a tangible aspect of the light of divine masculine with the will to act and manifest is interwoven in all living beings. Every single person has access to the light that can assist them with courage, manifestation of personal truth, and divine consciousness. What amazing knowledge it can be, to connect and feel this energy reality. To know that when humans work together, from a place of conscious intentions and choice we are able to effect such incredible change.

May today be a day of clear reception of your highest Self and vibrational gifts for this planet.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Balancing the Wheel of Self

19-grandmother-reflections
artwork by Jane Shepherd, copyright remains with the artist

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,

Kamia

What About the 6th Sense?

When a person asks a small child, how big they are, many children will stretch their arms out as far as they can, and with straining effort that their little chubby arms cannot encapsulate, say “SOOOOOO big.” The child is telling the truth. Their spirit, although patiently navigating, first steps, tumbles and the giant challenge of adult sized stairs, is infinitely larger than their human body. Their bright innocent light, is still aware at this stage of childhood, that ‘they’ stretch outwards, upwards, and in each direction, miles from their physical body. Their perception of space, the being of human and also this infinite being, is existing in a cooperative manner that allows for intuition and awareness of people they interact with, the environment and elements, and of their myriad array of helpers on the etheric plane; fairies, angels, ascended masters, god/dess, earth spirits and guides.

In the beginning, when a bright and light resonating soul comes into the world in the tiny infant body they will inhabit for this lifespan, there is the first realization of a new perception of space. Sometimes this can bring out allot of tears. In my case, my parents claim I came out into the world, looked around, at them and my siblings, had some breast milk and promptly went to sleep. On days where I feel several lifetimes old, I think back to this moment and ruefully laugh, for even with several lifetimes of birthing and living and dying, one of the lessons I return to with the occasional outburst of frustration and fist shaking at the sky, is for inhabiting, in the physical body, a small space.

When does this perception of space become confining or ‘smaller’? I think each person may have a different time. A trauma, or a hurt, where they felt small all of a sudden, and the giant reach of their spirit felt knocked off of center. For myself, as I sat in my grade one desk, clutching rainbow colored pencils, my first negative interaction with space occurred when the teacher wrote on the board and said “There are 5 senses.” In my head, I said, “What about the 6th sense?” As an intuitive and empathetic child, looking around at my class mates, many bright eyes and big spirited, I waited to see who would be brave enough to ask the question. There was silence. I chewed on my pencil and waited until lunch to go home, and ask my mom why the teacher wasn’t talking about the 6th sense, by far my favorite sense, the one I relieved upon more than any other to navigate life. I do not remember her response, but it was something along the lines of “Well, maybe the teacher wasn’t told there is one?”

Last week I had a wonderful and spontaneous conversation with a woman about the spirit realm, and I thanked her for her ‘openness’. She replied, “Yes, it is true, isn’t it? People will speak to the level they are spoken to?” And I agreed, and then smiled. This blogpost is in honor of her words.

Over the last year, as I have shared these blogposts, the musings of my 6th sense, I have witnessed an incredible transformation in the way I have interacted with many people in my life, and many beautiful new people I am encountering (for the first time in this life, but ‘again’ from others.) I spend my favorite time and energy ‘speaking’ with this writing of ‘more’, and in celebrating how ‘big’ we all are. It is my apology and reconciliation for the six year olds from my younger self, who got told they were small. It is my apology and reconciliation to the world at large and the adults that are all around me, who have forgotten, and been told that they are small.

I ask my five year old daughter, how big are you, and she gets a twinkle in her eye and shouts back “HUGE!” and then she flexes her chubby arms at me. I hope to have her say the same thing for all the years of her life. I know that their will be times where she may not. I see friends and light workers, who have days where their shoulders curl, and they heads droop and they speak in small voices, and they do not feel the enormity of their spirits, and support of their team of angelic realm helpers. And that is okay, because I have days where I feel small for a few minutes too. However, those days have gotten fewer and farther between, and I want to share this feeling, this expansive, knowledge that we are ‘more’ and ‘big’ and ‘beautiful’ in our enormous energy rich selves.

Here is my prayer for myself, for my child, for each child coming into the world, and for the adults who were once children and told or shown that they did not have light wings,

“I ask that the angels come into this room to the space that any reading these words is inhabiting. I pray that the resonant energy of the Christ Consciousness, and the Archangels, as messengers, and light rays of the Creator/God/dess source of creation, be with us each in this moment, and in the way that we are each most receptive to messages, whether through thought, feeling, sound, or image. Help us to receive a greater awareness of our Higher Selves and aura’s. Please bring these messages all day long. Please remind us that we can reach out with these energy selves, to feel rain falling a mile away, to sense people as they come towards us, or move away from us. Please help this ‘greater awareness’ to be gentle, and to show us also the incredible tools we have for deflecting and shrugging away all lower energies. Help us to clean the space that we inhabit, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. And please help us all, to feel energized by this reminder of greater self, empowered to act in our daily lives, with this knowing. Thank you angels, ascended masters, fairies, spirit guides and earth helpers. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

With light, and respect,
may you be BIG today,
Kamia

A Warrior’s Breath

I had a spiritual teacher who once suggested we listen to our voices, take note and then take four deep powerful breathes and listen to the same words once more. When I try this exercise I am astonished by how much deeper my voice sounds after the larger breathes.  It is as if, the space in my body, the expansion of my lungs, has released a more powerful version of who I am, and allowed my actual voice to speak my truth.

Sometimes in western culture, we forget to really Breathe.  Our physical bodies need oxygen to function, but our etheric bodies, our emotional and mental ones as well, are all deeply connected to our Breath. In a state of anxiety or panic, people often take short, shallow, and rapid breathes.  In deepest relaxation, the gentle rise and fall of their diaphragms is like the deep rolling waves of the ocean.  To breathe with intention for ones greatest sense of well being and balance, is to remember, that no matter how overwhelming life may seem, there is always enough time to Breathe.   In the spirit of encouraging you to speak your truth, with confidence and power, I am delighted to share  a breathing technique with you.

The Three Part Belly Breath is an introduction to deeper breathing.  It can be done at any time, anywhere, while sitting, walking or laying on your back.  My favorite variation is with a combination of yogic instruction and ‘energy awareness’.

*First interlace your fingers, and place your palms across your stomach.  By interlacing your fingers, palms facing down, you have just blocked all other energy beyond your own personal resonance from your aura.  Enjoy this sensation and take a few normal breaths while you ground into an awareness of your physical body and self.

*Next close your eyes and visualize the pathway your inhale follows, attribute a color that resonates with you to the air, such as soft gold, or healing green, strong blue, or loving pink.  Notice how the breath flows through your navel cavities and down your throat expanding your lungs.  On your next breath, imagine the color flowing deeper, expanding your belly, and pressing outwards at your palms. Your exhalation follows the same path, up from your stomach, resonating through your lungs, up through your throat and out through your nostrils.

*It may take two or three inhalations before you are able to draw the breath all the way into your belly.  Note the feeling of space and expansion as your throat, heart center, and stomach all begin to create greater space for breathe.

*When you feel that the air is saturating your being, a slight dizziness may temporarily occur, at which point it is best to be sitting.  Take another eight breaths.  When you are ready to open your eyes, it is a good time to chant a mantra, of your own making, a personal affirmation, a prayer, or a spontaneous sound of joy or release.

*Unlacing your fingers, gently place your palms face down, if you would like to feel a greater sense of grounding, or hold them face up, if you wish to receive energy from the universe, your higher self or angels.

Most importantly, return to this deeper breathing throughout the day, when commuting, working, sitting quietly and contemplating life, or in the moments before sleep, give yourself the gift of deeper breathing.

Be loud in your breath, like the wind moving through the trees, be powerful in your fueling of your body and Self, and carry that energy into your waking life as the prana-fuel for your expression of your own unique gifts and truth.

with joy, Kamia
