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.

Prayer for Communication based in Divine Love

During the unfolding awareness that many are currently experiencing, there is a deep desire to connect from a place of Divine Love with those we encounter in our lives. Whether in work, friendship, family, or romantic relationship, we are all navigating different levels of personal expression that can be assisted with the grace of Archangel Gabriel and a devotion to clear, truth-filled, divine love based, communication.

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

Soul Friends, Unexpected and Cherished Sweetness

You will always recognize a Soul Friend.  They will light you up inside and out, even for a brief moment, as you order coffee in a crowded cafe, and from opposites sides of the room, while the weather rages outside.  They are the people that we recognize, with a deep blossoming of light and understanding, who for a moment, or a lifetime, remind us of the humor, the joy, and the grandness of life.

An indication that you are interacting with a Soul Friend, is that you may sense other faces, and clothing, overlaid with the image you have of the person in this present physical reality.  For example, the two of you may often fall into conversation about another country, time and place.  You may share a passion for movies and books that explore the era, and during these conversations, the world around you may seem to sparkle, as if your conversation is pulling the past into the present, a globe of understanding of a deeper part of the Self coming to the forefront of ones awareness.  These experiences are natural, and a gift.  As a part of one’s present Soul Contract, the agreement our Higher Selves make when returning to the earth plane in the present incarnation, these memories of strengths and lessons from previous lifetimes, carry gifts and resonance that can help to shape and honor this life’s present soul path.

If a Soul Friend reminds one of Healing, perhaps it is because this present lifetime is calling for exploration of a healer’s path or a reminder that healing on all levels can occur.  Perhaps a Soul Friend was a fellow warrior, and whenever one is with them, this present incarnation is reminded to fiercely strive to protect and create new opportunities and loved ones in this life.  The difference between a Soul Friend, and the relationships previously discussed in ‘Healing Past Life Trauma for Present Life Wellness”, is that a Soul Friend will inspire us, to be more of who we are, and we will come away from the interactions feeling stronger, brighter, and more centered.

It is common, as the friendships develop, to have both people begin to ‘remember’ elements of the past life.  I have had success with ‘open’ individuals in this lifetime, identifying several past life’s shared with individuals.  These gifts of awareness and understanding remind me constantly to not take this present incarnation more seriously than needed.  Laughter is a medicine that travels through time and space, and your Soul Friends will bring it out in you.  

If you have interacted with someone on a superficial level, yet have a desire to explore a friendship, and get  a ‘sense’ that you are Soul Friends, by all means, approach them, and spend a little extra time talking.  Chances are very good that they ‘recognize’ you as well.  Even if the conversation is brief, your desire to speak with them is a reflection of a gift their soul wants to give and receive from yours.  Think of it like a candle lantern where you are holding one another’s match.  As you ignite a deeper awareness in your ‘friend’ they too are helping you to reach a needed illumination at this time.

Our planet continues to shed layers of debris physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.  Each illuminating moment with another human spreads greater light, beauty and love to support these changes for the highest good of the planet and humanity as a whole.  A passing conversation can lead to life changes in both parties life.  Never discount the beauty you as an individual have to share!  Shine your unique light, embrace friendships and relationships that leave you feeling ‘brighter’, and join the revolution of awareness that has us all being offered the opportunity to bring forth valuable gifts and understanding from the many experiences and lifetimes we have previously had on the planet.

I have been blessed with many Soul Friends during my journey in this present life, and I cherish each of them, even if they only crossed paths with me for an afternoon.  The ones that return, the ones I get to interact with for months or even years, are like finding a store giving away free artisan chocolate.  So much sweetness, I could laugh and cry at the same time.

with light and appreciation,

Kamia
