Balance Through Being Present

IMG_1767

We are all capable of growth in leaps and bounds, or small minute detailed seeds.  We healthfully integrate such growth by accepting the cycle we are currently offered and devoting time and energy to bravely leaping, or carefully scrutinizing these rhythms. Our rhythms are our own, to navigate, celebrate, amplify, and combine with the overall resonance of Divine Source to the best of our capacity each day.  And yet, for those that leap, or those that carefully plan, there are times in life in which we are offered opportunities to elevate our personal vibration and often through the opposite patterning that we are accustomed to.  

Some of us may live many lifetimes in a single incarnated lifespan, some of us may live a very long one life experience; each soul incarnates with the free will, and resonance to fulfill its life path with Grace and self acceptance.  For those that have cycled many times through lifespans, we are able to offer reassurance, a helping, steadying hand to those that are new to the physical, or have not been on the planet in physical reality in a long time.  For those that are new to the earth plane, they are able to remind us of the delight and capacity to bravely explore all human interaction.  

In the duality of exploring new manners and rythms, we evolve a little further towards our own highest good. We all can identify what brings us balance, by looking at the overall patterns and reoccurring life times we attract into daily, yearly and decades of living.  If we are masterful at attracting abundance then what abundance are we capable of bestowing on others?  If we are always in conscious physical being, when and where do we allow ourselves to dream? If always in mental exploration, at what time throughout our lifespan or in each moment of the day will we choose to ‘feel’ and think with the emotional body? For example, if a person is used to carrying others, energetically, the inverse balancing practise, is to release all such sense of responsibility and to identify that the ultimate gift is reminding one another we are capable of carrying ourselves, with God/dess constant encouragement. On the opposite and counterbalancing side of the spectrum of energy exchange, if a person is used to receiving, then the inverse is to give selflessly.  

Each of us is always walking on an etheric web of scales.  Where we drop our attention and harvest intentional creative being, where we draw, sculpt and build new dreams. We are also each susceptible of combining our personal rhythm with an overlying cultural or life pattern in the present worlds manifest reality.  It can be comfortable to believe we should rush, and achieve, because of a thread of energy that flows through current culture in an imbalanced way that promotes dissociation from Peacefulness.  We are able, however with devoted time and energy to each choose to be present in each breath, each moment, and see that while we build empires of being, thought, or material wealth, we can also choose to feel, meditate, simplify and expand our energy field to the more ancient roots, rhythms and threads of energy that circle beyond this present time, and offer an anchor into Peacefulness. 

IMG_5254

Balance is a daily devotional practice.  It is in connecting more fully with the our physical heartbeat and rhythm, and the mirror, amplifier, greater drum of the planet. Yet it is also in reaching out energetically and identifying patterns that others carry, with depth of compassion and acceptance for the learning path each individual is on. We are always devoted to Peace, how do we choose to balance by embracing the transformative fire of movement and change?  If we are always rushing and achieving, what gifts are we willing to accept into our life for stillness and reception of Beauty? 

If someone seeks assistance through asking questions and a will to learn about our personal unfolding, we can choose to offer teachings, yet we can also choose times to be seekers or students ourselves.  Everyone smoothly may flow from one side, space, level of energy reception, to the next. 

Opening that receptive quality, for identifying where balance can be invited into our lives requires the free will choice, to pause, to rest, and sometimes to change direction. 

For those seeking to feel more balanced at this time in the calendar year, or in their present or approaching decades of self I offer this simple practice that has assisted me in this and previous lifetimes:

Choose a place whether indoors or outside and sit with hands interlaced across the navel. 

Breathe deeply for four to twelve breaths, and with each breath allow that ones heartbeat be noted.

Visualize the in a globe of soft white light.  Inside of that globe, there is only space for Love.  This can be said outlaid or repeated in the mind “There is only space for love in my aura.” This is not to say we may not experience echoes of fear, challenge, struggle, frustration or anxiety in our safe energy boundary, but rather that we are blocking reception of external  fear based energy and identifying what we as an individual are contributing/carrying at this moment in time.

Once the globe of light feels solid, a prayer such as this can facilitate learning surrounding personal Balance :

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for your assistance in cleaning all levels of energy that are no longer in alignment with my highest good.  Please help me to clearly see areas of my life in which I ma ready for healing, or can invite in change.  Thank you for sending my guardian angels, spirit guides, ancestors  or the ascended masters aligned with m at this time, to me in my sleep or during meditation to encourage courage, patience and compassion.  Thank you for this gift of life, I am ready to take responsibility for any actions that are necessary or any inaction that is most healthful during this cycle of self, to continue my growth and personal, and universally connected, evolution.  Amen, OM and Aho.”

After such a prayer,  what do we receive? Approaching this experience with a willingness to Grow, can reveal or solidify deep intuitive wisdom.  Sometimes we grow with so much effort and sometimes with spontaneous acceptance of light speed life shifts. Perhaps we receive messages, clear feelings through self acceptance, we may feel, think, see, or hear messages. There may be fragments of songs, warmth, colour or words. Perhaps we identify we are offered balance through the warmth of a nap, song, spontaneous body movement or sustenance through healthful food, as rises through a series of messages in our globes of protective light.

As we sort through and accept each thought/feeling/sensation as they rise, what do we clearly identify regarding our connection to the external world, after we have invested time and energy in balancing this internal landscape? Is there an invitation to practice forgiveness should another person be seeking to place their burden on our energy shoulders?   We may choose to practice prayer for individuals that are close to energy breakthroughs, after identifying that our role is to self heal and then remind others they are capable of the same.  Acceptance of growth allows whatever cycle is natural at this time, to occur, until a new cycle is invited in.  When we are fluid in our self acceptance, we allow our personal processes to flow more peacefully through our lifespan, and empower all those we encounter that Balance is possible.

With light and kindness for wherever your personal rhythms are guiding your each this month,

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,

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.

Simple Pleasures, Celebrating this Life

Life is such a gift. A balanced spiritually devout being is not asked by the Divine to reject the physical world or the body that houses us. To fully bring forth the gifts we are each carrying, we are asked to make peace and practice love within the body we inhabit. We each carry intuitive knowledge of what the ‘wild self,’ the essence that is our purest form, is craving for celebratory Joy. Our energy bodies, vast, expansive and carrying the wisdom from thousands of reincarnated lives, are offered Balance through this cycle of life, with both the deep sorrows and grief we can survive, counterposed by the absolute delight in being alive these bodies and incarnated selves are capable of experiencing. Our wild selves may need serious unleashing, yelling in the forest, or pounding at top speed up a mountain, But sometimes that intuitive voice, that yearning to let go, and unfold the wings we are each carrying, can be as sweet and simple as sunlight on our upturned faces or feeling the soft petals of a flower as our fingers trail through a garden; our Souls way of physically, mentally and emotionally honouring a longing, an impetus for change, for radiance and colour and a saturation of the precious nectar of life. We can feel equal delight from a meditation in which we are connected with our soul groups on the spiritual plane, to the delight that is possible when our toes curl in grass, or sand, or mud. Feeling the power in our arms when we hold someone close, sharing the rhythm of one another’s heart beats connects many levels of being with the beauty and joy of this life.

When was the last time we each gave ourselves permission to experience a moment with joy and total abandon? The restraints of social normalcy, ego based ‘should’s’ and repression of our personal passion, thrown out the window, while we spun in reckless self expression? There is such joy in ‘feeling’. I feel with my senses in so many ways and carry deep gratitude for those who request assistance on the etheric level, through Certified Angel Card Readings ™. Yet, if I am not ‘present’ within my body and self, I have less connection to etheric power to bring forward into facilitating healing, or to any area of my life.

When I seek to find a way to be more ‘connected ‘ to the essence of both spiritual light, and incarnated abundance, I retreat into a silent manner of being, whether outside or in a pool of sunlight within doors. Sitting, I lengthen my spine and take eight deep breathes. Placing hands over top of my navel, plans facing up for reception, or downwards for grounding.  A prayer/affirmation that I have found useful is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to clearly identify the ways in which my purest essence of self is asking to be expressed, acknowledged and celebrated at this time. Please send my the assistance of Archangel Micheal to cut through any chords of fear that are blocking my receptivity to clearly perceiving the messages my Higher Self and intuitive wisdom wish to share at this time. Thank you, Amen, Aho, and OM.”

The essence of self may ask to shed layers of energy, it may wish to shout into the woods, or into a pillow. It may need to cheer enthusiastically or sing at top volume in outrageous, colourful delight. Or, it may need to place the emotional burdens of carrying those that one loves, down onto the earth and to again trust that the Divine Source is capable of cradling us all while we are learning to navigate letting go, moving forward and rediscovering our individual passions for this life. Sometimes it takes a devotion of time and energy, a promise we choose to make to ourselves, after or before all of the household, professional and family responsibilities have been managed for the day, and we escape for solitary and balancing time, a simple practice such as letting our hair flow in the wind beneath a passionate apricot and nectarine toned sunset. Somedays being connected can manifest in the gentle inspiration for changing the colours that we habitually wear. For the highly sensitive, colour and texture effect our levels of receptivity and sense of ‘belonging’ with the divine. Other days the messages may be more intense, asking for difficult conversations to occur between ourselves and our inner union of Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities, or with another person who has an impact on our well being. During those times, we each have the capacity to identify that change, growth, transformation and intuitive wisdom can release a myriad array of emotions. Yet, when we give ourselves and others permission to express emotion, we honour that we each deserve emotional health.

In what ever capacity, we are each drawn to connecting, celebration and honouring the different levels of ‘self’ we each have, may we do so with boldness, colour and delight. For truly, this life, for all that it brings during times of despair, offerings us equal measure to choose to be present with Joy, with delight and with the simple pleasures of being incarnated and alive during this time of momentous potential for change and higher consciousness.

Authentic Voice and Inner Calm

 

Recently I have had several people comment that I am very calm, which often surprises me. My internal landscape has volcanic eruptions of emotions, etheric pendulums of cosmic unfolding, and a mental dialogue at the speed of a hummingbirds wing. Yet I accept these comments, as a reflection of a personal dedication to balance. Through the authenticity of acknowledging what I need in each moment to find a balanced self, balance can resonate like calmness.

img_2416

No matter how old we are in physical body, we have aspects of ourselves that will forever be as pure and innocent as a young child. In the capacity of acknowledging that this aspect of self exists, we are offered the choice to honor the words, action and movement that can be practiced to bring about personal authenticity, calm and empowerment. Our words, beliefs and faith in the outside world often mirror the words that we use with ourselves.

I have the good fortune to work with a few hundred children, sharing in the gifts of Yoga. Children are receptive on so many levels. Their ‘intuition’ and heightened sensitivities, their sixth sense, is finely tuned to discerning the nonverbal cues adults send around them each and every day. If we seek to empower them to feel safe, confident and supported, one of the ways to do so, is to attune our inner voice with our outwards voices and actions. Before I teach and share yoga with the children, the future generations who will be caretakers of our planet, I empower myself to seek personal balance. In my personal practice I feed myself honesty. The words, the feelings, the movements and breathing that my being is calling out for, in its search for balance. On days where I am sleepy, vulnerable or discouraged, I empower myself to be honest on an internal level with these feelings. If we are feeding ourselves with gentle, loving kindness such as ‘I know you are doing the best that you are able to at this time. Thank you, I am proud of you.’ Instead of a negative or hurtful thought pattern, other people we encounter, particularly children, will hear gentleness and loving kindness in the words that we use with them. Authentic internal voice may sometimes say ‘I expected better from you today,’ But it can also say, ‘I forgive you and know that you can do better. I love and respect you in the ways that you are growing, changing and learning every day. In this inner dialogue, we begin to see changes in our outward lives.

Many parents have told me they wished they could feel a greater sense of calm when with their children. I offer them this gentle encouragement. ‘Instead of seeking to appear calm, give oneself permission to acknowledge what the self is truly seeking to feel Balanced, the calm follows honoring ones authentic self.’

If we are willing to be forgiving and kind internally, the world around us shifts and reflects this seeking for personal balance. Peoples actions, choices and impact then gather the momentum for us to recognize ways that we can be encouraging, forgiving and supportive of others. Children especially will feel a devotion to balance and kindness radiate off of us.

One of the prayers I use out loud or internally when seeking to acknowledge my authentic voice and self is:

“Dear God/dess, Creator and Light source of this magnificent earth, please help me to receive the gifts of self knowledge that allow for accurate identification of the thoughts, words, movement and color I need at this time to reconnect with a Balanced sense of Self. Please send the light resonance of the Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through all lower vibrations of self doubt or negativity I have been feeding myself. Please send the compassion, beauty and grace of Quan Yin and the Archangel Jophiel to assist me in seeing the beauty I have to share on an authentic level with all those I influence and encounter. Thank you beautiful earth for cradling my footsteps, as I stand in stillness or walk in new directions that honor my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

What are the words we can each feed ourselves in this moment to afford an opportunity for balance or self healing? Placing our hands over our heart centers we can take a series of deep breathes and ask our intuitive selves, ‘What do I need at this time?’ Whatever the answer, we are then given the choice to listen and honor the intuitive, innocent self that answers.

May we choose Compassion and Grace.

With light and respect for the ways we are each seeking balance at this time,

An Expanded View Expands Consciousness

One of the greatest gifts any of us can experience, is to have the ability to ‘see’ beyond what is directly in front of us, and use our etheric perceptions for a ‘greater world view.’

Highly sensitive people act like beacons for other people still expanding their sensitivity. A highly sensitive energetic person will often have people and situations approach them that seek expression and clearing through the gifts of radiant etheric intensification the highly sensitive individual carries. In plain terms, if you are highly sensitive, other people may come around you to dump their emotions and energy, as you activate a clearing and detoxifying through your own resonance. Sometimes, these interactions can feel challenging or overwhelming. When this happens, a healthy tool is to verbalize and act on ones need for personal space, and alignment.

At times in life when we each experience challenges, despair, negativity or suffering, it is through an Expansion of View that we are often able to reignite our connection to personal power and the Divine. All people emit energy vibrations. And all people receive the vibrations of others. We are each at varying levels of consciousness and awareness in terms of our sensitivity to the reception and sharing of this etheric reality. When we seek time and space to foster self awareness and balance, we are emitting a frequency, a music so to speak, or a light combination, that draws to us people also seeking to find personal alignment. For example, during struggles with an interpersonal relationship, it is easy to see the ways in which another person directly effects our feelings. Yet, from an expanded view, from a place in which we have self empowered ourselves to step back and ‘see more,’ we may find that another persons experience has very little to do with us, and much more to do with the challenges, growth and learning their Soul and self are experiencing at this time. As a highly sensitive person, there can be times in life when encountering other peoples feelings that cascade forth, feels like entering a tidal wave or chaotic tornado. Yet, through meditation, yoga, and daily practices that bring us personal balanced, we are better able to discern a tidal wave of emotion or energy as it approaches us, and divert it through sending prayers for transformation and healing to the person emitting the frequency. In this manner, our ‘greater seeing’ allows us to empathize with other peoples personal struggles, and stay connected to our personal power through sharing compassion, encouragement and the gift of healthy boundaries. In this way we can share with others the gifts of empathy, compassion and encouragement, without feeling as though we are living out their struggles for them.

Visiting a place with rushing water can be a powerful tool for clearing the energy of others that we are carrying. I find it a powerful tool for prayer when I seek to encourage others along their path, or diffuse any lower vibrations that have been sent towards me. While near water, my expanded view allows for a vision of the world in which we are each flowing in our own directions, and each seeking to emit our own unique music and frequency the best way we are able to at the time.

A prayer that I practice often is:

“Dear Divine Life force of this universe, thank you for the blessings you share with all living beings. Thank you for the light you offer to infuse my cells and being, as I grow, just as all living things are growing. Please help me to attune my personal frequency to the highest vibrations of Love, Peace, and Compassion and to retain this resonance during each of my interactions with other people and the planet. I ask that the water I visit, clear all karmic debris I am ready to release, and allow for an energy shift to transmute lower vibrations into new vital life force. Please send light beings aligned with (insert people names that are in the midst of challenges, or causing one challenges) to assist them on their journey and remind them of the light and choices they each carry. Thank you Amen, Om and Aho.”

The beauty of water, is that it flows through, around and over obstacles. Just as we, the people upon the planet are capable of changing directions, flowing with enthusiasm and connected consciousness towards new goals, ideals, peace and hope. Even when we see or are affected by choices and actions other people make and the vibration they emit, from an expanded view we remain connected to the awareness that each human has the personal power to make new choices every day, with each new awakening of self. We are all growing, flowing, moving, learning and choosing every minute of the day. We can choose to pause, in our forward momentum on the physical level, to find time and space to ‘expand our consciousness’ through an expanded view of the world, and our connected future as a whole, and retain this expanded awareness for clarity and perspective. What are the ways in which today affords a clearing of energy on a collective scale and a reinvigoration of personal and cosmic energy on a grander scale? Can we make choices individually to speak, act and manifest from a place of personal balance and peace, so that we effect a greater tidal wave of co-created vibrations for hope and compassion?

May we each feel connected to a greater awareness of our Self, our relationships, our collective world, and the ways in which we are each able to contribute to the co-creation of this present, and our future, reality of Earth.

Grounding Etheric Energy with Pele

The etheric body is inextricably linked to the physical, emotional and mental versions of the ‘Self’. Through drawing our awareness to ‘grounding’ and harnessing the light of the divine and the higher self, with the assistance of the fiery ascended master Pele, we can burn through lower energies,  thought patterns and fear.

The root chakra is our etheric chord and connection to the centre of the earth and allows us to view the world around us with a greater capacity to feel joy and belonging.  Through a simple visualization or prayer, we honour the etheric wheels of light, our chakras, while seeking to encourage balance, wisdom and healing on all levels.

Pele offers us each the gifts of regeneration, rebirth and renewal of vital life force.  Allow your inner fire to build the dreams you have been dreaming and burn away aspects of your life and being you are ready to release.

Thank you for feeling a connection to the earth, and the Divine today, with light and respect for you journey,

Kamia

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

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.”

Kaleidoscope of Light

The world is changing, as she always does.  The energy shifting at the present time is so powerful that even those people who are new to exploring or recognizing a dialogue of energetic realities are seeking out their own unique ways of spiritual expression.

When I ‘look’ at the earth at this time I see tides of light and color moving across and around her, a giant swirl of energy, breaking through the solidified patterns of the past and creating space for greater growth and expansion.  Obviously, this clearing creates opportunities for fear based energies to expand as well, but with focused intentions for a higher vibration and love based future by each of us on an individual level, we have the power to transform and decide the direction each of our countries, governments and our shared planet.

This is the ultimate time to embrace the flow of light and transformation sweeping past each of our individual lives.  As flooding moved across different areas of the planet, and in a similar fashion as a flood of people took to the streets to protest different political agendas or social injustices, we become linked to this tide of light.  Bringing a daily prayer into our routines that honors this impetus for change, and refocuses our intention for our highest good as well as that of the planet is like adding another star to the sky.  We all are extremely receptive to igniting our own spark when those around us are doing the same.

The following is a prayer, that can be said to whatever higher power/source you are most inspired by at this time:

“I invoke the love and light of my highest consciousness, with the aid and assistance of Godd/dess, my guardian Angels and the Archangel Jophiel who sees the beauty in all living beings, to align my true self with its Soul Path, so that I may be an advocate of healing, peace and change for the most benevolent outcome on the planet at this time.  I ask for assistance and love to be shared with those individuals that are struggling most, so that their own sense of self worth and worthiness is filled with divine compassion.  May love and protection from lower energies be with me, and those that I care about, as well as those that I struggle with the most, every step of the day.”

In praying for those that we do not agree with, we open up a pathway of light to their higher selves, and their highest chakras.  In so doing, we are paving the way for change.  Although praying for those that are wrecking havoc on the planet can be very challenging, it is also one way that the fear and anger we carry is absolutely removed from our own auric fields, allowing us to shine brighter and inspire further transformation.

Claim a moment throughout your day, and create a sacred space for these prayers, noticing the immediate changes to your emotional, mental, spiritual and ultimately, physical body, after saying them. If you find yourself suddenly wanting to change clothing to brighter colors or cleanse a piece to jewry you have been wearing regularly in salt water, this is a normal manifestation of your physical reality wanting to to ‘catch up’ so to speak with the changes that have occurred in your auric field.

To maintain this sense of relief and wellness, consider adding a piece of silk to your wardrobe for the day.  Silk helps to wipe clean the energy it interacts with, and a light scarf can either be worn or simply kept in a bag to run ones hands over to ‘clear’ energy throughout the day.  If you are experiencing an overwhelming amount of mental confusion, consider wearing the silk scarf on your head for an hour at home.

Remember that praying for the planet, the collective unconscious, those we love, and ourselves as individuals, does make a difference.  I assure you that a prayer is like a beacon of light, shooting upwards and outwards in the etheric plane, and whether from a stranger or someone we know, the light when it touches us all, is ‘felt’ and deeply appreciated.

With light,

Kamia
