Etheric Alignment to Remove Fear or Insomnia

On the etheric level, my ‘vision’ of the world, is one in which two separate earths are coexisting, and overlying across one another. On one image, is an energy globe that stretches and twists with different levels of energy of the lower frequencies, rolling against one another like muddy debris being tossed through the air. The second image is of a globe of light, soft colors of gold, pinks and blues, all swirling gently in a spiral together. The two images exist simultaneously, yet with each determination a person makes to speak, act, and live from a place of Divine Love, the soft colors spread out, enfold a piece of the muddy energy, and work to assimilate the energy of the debris and raise its frequency to something shining like a crystal.

For people who have been experiencing a ‘shift’ in personal consciousness, or an ‘awakening’ of their ‘sixth sense’, this is a tumultuous feeling time, where sleep can feel elusive or challenging, and be akin to insomnia. The ‘pull’ of the opposing energies can leave one feeling as though the adrenal glands are constantly firing adrenalin, as if a one is constantly ready to run up a mountain rather than relax into sleep. Feverish sleeps, as well as semi- conscious, not quite sleeping, but ‘kind-of-sleeping’ can also occur.

Sleep brings us many gifts, and for the highly sensitive, these gifts can be very clear recollections of all that was experienced when sleeping. The vivid dream states that most highly sensitive individuals enter when balanced, are sometimes a combination between ‘dreaming’ and ‘soul travel’. Astral projection between different dimensional realities can manifest in more than one way. A retention of ones current incarnations consciousness will accompany many who are astrally traveling across the earth, and through to different levels of the energy reality. Some people will visit the dimensions of ‘fairy,’ the realm that exist some closely with our own. Others will visit places such as ‘shambala’, and receive teachings from ascended masters. Others still will have vivid dreams that bring them in contact with ancestors, guardians from their spirits family, with advice, comfort, healing messages and guidance. Still, other vivid dreams can occur, in which the spirit is immersed in a learning opportunity that combines frequencies the earth is currently moving towards, and those that are being shed at this time.

To acknowledge the challenges that may be blocking some peoples current sleep patterns, and find a way to re-infuse the body with much needed rest, as well as to be navigating the energy realities, I offer these tools:

*Fresh air is incredibly important at this time. The air carries on it the energy resonance of all that has been interacting with the wind. The trees, the plants, the animals, the water, the sunlight, all come with the cleansing wind. When possible sleep with fresh air. If not possible, claim at least five minutes a day, outside, breathing deeply with intention. Visualize the energy of the element one is most drawn to at this time. Is it a waterfall with light radiating through it to cast a rainbow? Is it the snowy top of a mountain peak, or the lush green jungle where flowers bloom in abundance? What is the element of nature that could bring gifts of renewal? Visualize with each inhalation, this element is entering the body with the breath, and the life force of the place, like tiny sparkles of gold or silver are spreading out through the cells an self.

*Epsom salts or sea salts offer the gift of removal of lower energies and are readily available in bulk purchase. Before sleeping, mix a generous handful in a bowl and place either the hands or the feet into the water. Visualize any challenging encounters, lower energies or hurtful feelings experienced during the day, being pulled out of the feet or hands, into the water. The body on the physical level releases toxins into the salt bath, while on the etheric and emotional level, the salts and water have an elevated ‘cleansing’ frequency.

*Consider a nightly affirmation/prayer such as this one:

“Dear God/dess of creation, ascended masters working alongside me at this time, and archangels who wish to bring forth blessings, please guide me to release on all levels, any negativity, lower vibrations or fear that is effecting my ability to receive restful sleep. Please send me clear messages throughout the day, for what I can do that aligns my body, mind, heart and spirit, with my best Divine health. I ask that Archangels Micheal and Ariel, and Shiva assist me in connecting to the personal courage and truth I am seeking at this time, for my personal evolution of Love, Peace, and Compassion. Please send light to my loved ones, as they navigate their own personal changes, and help me encourage them in whatever way would be most helpful at this time, for rejuvenation, strength and kindness. Thank you, Amen, Om, an Aho.”

The tools provided here are simple. Just as the act of falling asleep, receiving cellular regeneration and a renewal of life force, should be simple. Yet in this time, of cosmic shifting, we are often distracted by daily tasks and patterns that take our awareness away from the simplicity of life. Yet, all that we experience, has the potential to flow through, around and with us in a positive manner. Like a kaleidoscope of soft colors and light, all swirling in the same direction, we are able to synthesize and align our beings for greater restful, empowered consciousness.  From this place of alignment, when we do enter the ‘dream state’, the experiences we have, the energy we shed, can add to our sense of personal empowerment.

We all deserve to be in alignment with our own Divine health. Wishing everyone the peace of balanced sleep.

With light and respect for your journey,

Be Courageous, and Grow.

Courage can sometimes manifest as our willingness to deal with, in a new way, a situation, pattern or concern that has occurred in our lives. Regardless of how long we have experienced a pattern, situation, relationship dynamic, or challenge, it is with a connection to our personal power and truth, that we use Courage and are able to alter our experience.

We are all beautiful unfolding beings, regardless of the stage of expansion we are each experiencing. For example, we may find that a relationship or interaction leaves us with a feeling of ‘dis-ease’ in the sense that we ‘felt’ our boundaries of self were not fully respected. This can be a result of our inability to firmly express our need for particular boundaries, as well as by coming to a spontaneous realization that what is best for our own personal and optimum health, has in fact changed This change, this desire to invest in a personal wellness, balance and sense of wholeness, is a natural occurrence in each individuals journey of transformation and growth.

It is natural to have felt comfortable in a manner of living, a way of thinking, and being, and find that through self analysis, an expansion of awareness, or time, that they desire to alter ones experience has manifested. The impetus to transform, the moment of realization that leads to the inevitable growth like another petal of a flower opening, draws us each closer to the soul path we have chosen to walk. We may not see every day, and through each instance of growth and transformation, where we are ultimately heading. The power of our free will, to make choices daily, directs us in a helix pattern towards and around our ‘core self’. We are each capable of seeing the world from a new perspective, as we continue on the spiral dance of life. From seeing ourselves with a heightened awareness of potential for joy and empowerment, and through these ‘new views’ we become something greater than we have allowed ourselves to believe we truly are.

Each human can choose to evolve cosmically, emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally. And with these choices, support and empower others to also open and grow. When we find the personal courage, in any instance, to speak from our place of ‘truth’ to acknowledge our expectations of the world and of ourselves to others, we are sending an etheric wave of energy outwards that reverberates and effects all that we interact with. For example we may decide one day that we desire to feel more vital life force energy in our bodies. Suddenly all of the recipes we are comfortable cooking seem to be flavorless and unappetizing. This is a very physical response to shift that is occurring on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level simultaneously. Our desire to honor a new belief that we are ‘worthy’ of feeling energized and enlivened is spreading through our cells, our aura, and our mental construct of identity. Perhaps it requires a new cooking class, a few hours of research on the internet for recipes, or a visit with a nutritionist. Perhaps it will also require a dialogue with those that we love in our direct circle of family who will have to be supportive of our new initiative when sharing meals.

The impetus to change, the moment of realization that we are yearning for growth in a further direction, requires Courage.

A prayer that I have found useful during times of anxiety, transformation, and personal growth is:

“Dear God/dess Creator of all that is and is possible, please send me the assistance of Archangel Michael, Archangel Ariel and of any and all ascended masters that are working with me at this time to bring forth and encourage my personal power and Courageous self. Please help me to have faith that I am developing, have developed and will continue to find, the tools necessary for the changes that are occurring in my life. Please help me to bolster my faith that the soul path I am walking, is filled with blessings. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Transformation and changes on any level requires intense energy and can often be assisted by a commitment to ‘non attachment’. In this context I refer to ‘non attachment’ as the idea that we can accept that the places, people and feelings that have occurred were real and apart of the learning process that has afforded this new emerging self. I practice ‘non attachment’ by acknowledging the feelings, yet letting them float peacefully away to be cradled and transformed by the earth and the light matrix we are all apart of. Today I felt courageous when I looked at some of the choices I had made previously and acknowledged the ways in which I make different choices now. I practiced non attachment by acknowledging the journey I have taken thus far, and by having faith the the journey I continue on will bring further opportunities to transform, evolve and grow.

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Celebrating Highly Sensitive Children

As a child I often struggled to reconcile the world around me that was ‘socially acceptable’ with the vibrant, diverse, far more interesting spiritual and emotional climate I was able to ‘read’.  Most of the time, it was very confusing.  What people said with their words in comparison with what their spirits or emotional resonance said, did not often align. It took several years to effectively construct energetic shields to stop being overwhelmed by the opposing messages.

Many children who are being born at this time are extremely ‘awake’.  You can tell as they look at you from their large luminous eyes, that not only are they seeing the body and face you are wearing, but also the emotional, spiritual and mental climate you are carrying.

Each person has an aura that extends several meters beyond their bodies.  People are conditioned to curl their energetic bodies more closely around their physical bodies as a coping mechanism early on in life.  It makes interactions with others emotions and spirits less overwhelming.  Ideally, through fostering meditation, yoga or reverence for the divine in another way such as communion with nature, people are given an opportunity to spread their wings of light, so to speak, to expand and trust their inner knowing and clear their energy fields so that interacting with others becomes a celebration of mirrored resonance and a joyful experience of others gifts.

One of the ways to respect and foster a child’s ‘sixth sense‘ is to be honest with them.  All of the time.  If you as a parent have words that are resonating in the same way as your emotional and spiritual body, then the child knows that they can trust you.  This certainly can lead to uncomfortable conversations, because there are days in which being honest with oneself also requires time for grief, healing, releasing and transforming anger, and the days can seem packed with other tasks and responsibilities.  Yet processing and acknowledging emotions is one of the most valuable gifts of mentorship you can offer a highly sensitive child.  Their emotions are like tidal waves.  You will see them rush through and seem to consume them.

Attempting to remain calm, to visualize surrounding them with white light and praying that their guardian angels help them to release and transform the emotion is all valuable.  Teaching them to breath through the emotion, to hold them against you if they wish to be held and taking deep, belly filling breaths also enables their rhythms to return to a  calmer place.

Sensitive and ‘awake’ children feel very deeply, not only their own emotions, but also the emotional climate of those they have interacted with though out the day.   A large crowded room, or an upset person they walked past can all flood them with emotions and energy they want to process. If your highly sensitive child prefers alone time, do not fear that they will be antisocial.  Consider that as they develop healthy boundaries and shielding techniques, they will attract other peoples energies that do not overwhelm them. I was far more comfortable alone, and sometimes still am, until I became more grounded in developing healthy boundaries and shielding techniques.  To share a simple few, consider the space that you child sleeps in.  Flood it with sunlight, encourage them to find rocks, outside that they are drawn to and bring them inside.  Many children will respond to the grounding energy of stones, and naturally want to collect them.  I am grateful still to my father for carrying backpacks of rocks home for me to array in my room.

Listen to the cultures or countries they are most fascinated by, and consider an image or piece of clothing from that country, as some of their past lives share gifts they wish to communicate in this present one. Perhaps they have recently had a lifetime in Tibet and are drawn to singing bowls.  This is a valuable energy clearing tool for them, in a similar way that sweet grass or sage for smudging can be used for clearing.

Allow them to dictate the colors they wear each day.  They will often adorn themselves like a rainbow and have very distinct ideas about what they want to wear.  Color has resonance, it mirrors and supports healthy chakras as well as matching their auras.  They will use these colors in healthy ways for creating balanced boundaries. Notice their response to drinking pure water.  Many will be highly sensitive chlorine and need filtered water, or when having a bath, a handful of sea salt to clear their energy.

Above all, listen to what they say, and what they ask you.  If they are curious about angels, or talk to them all the time, encourage their sharing of their inner knowing.  They may interact with a world that does not as easily accept this form of dialogue when they are outside the house, but if they feel safe expressing their gifts with you, they will be encouraged to hold onto them instead of trying to block them and ‘fit in’.

Trust their instincts about people they do not trust, and instead of talking them out of their thoughts, explore and communicate ways in which they can navigate uncomfortable situations with peers. This is challenging, but vital.  As you develop their tools, you will clarify and strengthen your own.  Highly sensitive children often pick highly sensitive parents.  They inspire growth, healing, divine love and colorful existence. They bring joy, when they are not struggling to ‘fit in’.

These children ‘know’ there is a God, angels,  fairies and plant devas, and that the earth and environment are precious.  They are teachers of us all, and if we remind them daily, that they are loved, and trusted, they will flourish and change the world as we know it in incredible ways.

As a child I to talked to angels and fairies and the earth.  I had a few years during which I attempted not to, to feel as if I ‘belonged’. Those were sad years.  I converse with the angels, fairies, and the earth daily once more.  Their messages are uplifting, energizing and filled with love. When I interact with people I want to tell them they are beautiful, bright, and worthy of love, because most of the time, their angels are all shouting it, and I am encouraged to join the chorus. I am grateful now for my heightened sensitivities and hope to mentor my own child to trust her inner knowing and gifts.

Many highly sensitive people learn to block out their spiritual awareness at a young age as a coping and survival skill.  The inner knowing however, is their greatest tool and ultimate survival and coping mechanism, and it is important to encourage a connection, foster self awareness and trust and endeavor to support these gifts, as ultimately they are Soul gifts that the person has brought to the planet.

The following is a prayer with the assistance of Archangels Michael the angel of protection, Raphael the angel of healing, and Ariel who is the ‘lioness of god’ or the brilliant gold light that infuses and balances the third chakra and our personal place of power and assertiveness:

Dear God/dess, and higher self, please help me to align my being with its unique and brilliant gifts.  Please help me to trust my inner knowing, to set and maintain healthy boundaries that enable me to celebrate my gifts, and interact with others in a manner that encourages their own healthily boundaries and inner truth. Please send Archangel Micheal with his sword to cut any chords of fear or negative energy from my personal space and being (and from around my child).  Please send Archangel Raphael to bring healing to any areas in my life, past and present that taught me to ignore my inner knowing. Please help me to have faith in my ability to perceive divine love on all levels, both within myself and within those that I interact with, and send Archangel Ariel to help me to have the courage to speak my truth from a place of love and assertiveness. Thank you , amen, and Om”.

To all of the parents of such children, and the adults that were once these children themselves, the light within me, recognizes, honors and celebrates the light within all of you, Namaste.

with light

Taking Your (inner) Child Outside

The earth is like a giant power source of universal consciousness and light, that connected to our physical and etheric bodies is in a constant transformation, with the ultimate goal of peaceful balance.  When people and spiritual healers talk of ‘being grounded’ what they are referring to is the strong and balanced connection between the multilayered self and the resonant energy of the planet completing a circular exchange of healthful energy.

Most people will have a memory or witness a moment with their own children in which a disgruntled, or unhappy feeling diffused and was replaced by joy during an ‘outdoor’ experience.  Perhaps this will be a memory of building industriously for hours with sticks and rocks at a small creek, or the joy of jumping over waves at the sea side.  In my case, making mud pies decorated with dandelions always made me feel happy.

What ever the moment or memory is that holds a positive tone, it is my deep heartfelt wish, that it has been recreated in new ways throughout the course of your lifetime, and that a connection and collaboration of energy exchange exists each day in your life between your Self and the earth.

For myself, I can say I had several years of delightful outdoor play.  Then came the birth of my child, and some of that play slowed down. Yet even the slower interactions based not on adrenaline seeking but on meditative communion with a sleeping baby on my chest, afforded the same balancing of energy.

I’ve heard people describe their meditative state as best achieved through the cessation of thoughts, yet for me, my most successful meditative state is when I am outside, allowing all of the jumbled thoughts, fears, ideas and creative inspiration to rush through my mind like so many galloping horses.  In their wake comes a calm, a settling of the mental dust, a greater space to receive messages from my higher self, and a deep reverence for the earth who is cradling my footsteps, brushing clean my aura and offering deep revitalizing breaths of fresh air.

However you are able to interact with the natural world today, I encourage you to create space to do so.  For some this might be driving home from work with the windows rolled all the way down.  Perhaps others it will be an outdoor exercise of muscle and ecstatic adrenaline.  For others still, a walk or sitting on a favorite bench or chair in the sunlight.  In whatever capacity you are able to interact with the outside world, you will benefit from doing so.

In the depths of winter, such as in the landscape I often reside in, when the temperatures have dropped and the world is soft and white, I like to gaze at a tree and dream of the way the roots are deep beneath the snow, gathering life from the warm earth, and envision that I too am a tree, aware of the many layers of soil and rock, running water, and lava that all exist beneath me. If you were a tree, what tree would you be?  Perhaps drawing this tree, or downloading an image, with strong roots and healthfully lifted branches will be your communion and grounding with nature today.

In honor of the fairy realm, the devas and spirits of the earth, I offer this prayer:

“Blessed trees and plants, and earth, thank you for nourishing and sustaining me.  Thank you for growing towards the light, and reminding me to stretch my awareness, and my being equally between the earth and the etheric light that surrounds us all.  Please God/dess, nourish and protect this earth even as you send angelic assistance and support to each human learning to cherish themselves, one another and the planet. Thank you Archangel Ariel for reminding me to be an advocate of all growing things, both within myself, and in the world to which I am inextricably linked.  Om and Amen.”
