Self Care in Times of Upheaval

There are times in life in which we each experience intense upheaval. A shifting of perception, experience or insight that occurs on one or many levels. During upheaval our experience may be fraught with pain, despair, joy, intuitive leaps, harmony, synchronicity or any and all other feeling. It can be through bearing witness to another’s journey or it can be a challenge that occurs on the physical level that connects to deep work in our emotional bodies. It can be a mental reconfiguration of beliefs, ideologies or faith that is like a lightening strike, and leaves us reconsidering our place and purpose in this world. On the spiritual level we are each capable of intuitive leaps of faith that transform our experience, our Soul Path, in one lifetime, accelerated far beyond the many centuries or thousands of previous lifetimes. Spiritual perception or enlightenment can manifest in different ways for every individual. We are each entitled to our personal unfolding. Yet, during upheaval, a re-configuring of that which has formerly made us feel secure, assured or safe in our prior experiences, we are each offered support and assistance from the Divine in a number of ways. The planet is home to millions of people, those who resonate and teach in so many diverse and powerful ways. We are offered the teachings and support, the service of this diverse world when we are willing to be open in our learning, our gathering of tools, and our expansion of self. I am deeply grateful for my additional sensory perception of the manifest world, and celebrate the wisdom gathered through interactions with Divine Source as Angels, Ascended Masters, the Fairy Kingdom, Spirit Guides and the Earth every day.

For those who find themselves in a cycle of upheaval, of re-examining that which they thought to be ‘true’ as new truth personally emerges, I offer some of the practices that have been of use in my life, with the preface, that I too, continue to learn and evolve and send out gratitude to all those who with a compassionate heart, are also evolving.

1.) Breathe into the Present. We are each multidimensional beings. We receive energy simultaneously from the present, the past and the manifesting futures. We are each, when we find ourselves in the centre of a massive transformation offered the simple gift of Breath work. Yoga, Thai Chi, and many other eastern philosophies that create union between body, mind, spirit and heart all emphasize the importance of Breath. The tool of awareness that draws life-force, prana, chi, shakti, into our cells and allows us to centre and ground into the present, to draw our awareness away from fear based thinking into the Here and Now. Whatever choices, movement or change we are experiencing, we can each spare the time and claim the sacred space to Breath 4 deep breaths, or 8, or 12 or 20. When the physiology of the body is offered this tool, we each can connect with a sense of Calm. In this calm, what are some of the things/feelings/learning that the self has Gratitude for in this moment? Gratitude can be for small and large aspects. Gratitude for the sun shining on ones face, or the chance to connect in a new way with loving the self?

2.) Draw a circle and bisect it with a cross shape, turning it into a wheel of self. In the four quadrants write:

Physical
Emotional
Mental
Spiritual

Looking at this drawing consider, how many hours of the day or how many days of the week, or how many years in my current life cycle do I spend living in/devoted to each of these quadrants? Do two of the four predominantly use up the time of focus and being? If so, what does this current upheaval/challenge/life cycle offer to teach me about exploring the other aspects of self for personal Balance or Transformation?
Each level of self is intricately connected to the other levels. If we, for example, are having a deeply physical experience, what does the emotional self seek to learn/express/clear? Some people may live the majority of there lives in only one aspect of the self, and yet through the connection to a loved one, or the world events at large, may find a time in life in which their beliefs, and personal perceptions are called into question/exploration affording a deeper human experience.

3.) Ask for the help that we each identify we need. From the above practice we may each see the ways in which we could benefit from guidance, further tools, and support. On the emotional level do we seek the support of friends and family through loving words? On the mental level do we seek the support and tool kits a therapist, psychologist or counsellor could offer? On the Spiritual level are we returning to, or discovering space in our lifetimes for a new form of Faith that supports us in this new self that is emerging? The light that is offered through many diverse spiritual practices can offer a deep Peace to those that are seeking light in a new and expanded way. Perhaps through books, psychic readings, or other energy healing modalities. On the Physical level have we met the basic needs of our body? Have we received guidance, diagnosis, second opinions or medication that help us to work through pain? Have we fed out bodies nourishing food, and received the sleep we need to make clear choices about asking for the help during our upheaval? Have we experienced the healing touch of massage, reflexology or a simple but powerful hug?

During the approaching year, or in any cycle of rebirth or upheaval, a prayer I will often use is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess. of creation, please send the aspects of light that are most in alignment with my cycle of growth at this time. Help me to receive compassion from the universe, and from those who are in my direct life path at this time. Help me to be patient as this new level of being unfolds, and to set healthy boundaries for myself regarding self healing and existence, in this evolving world. Please let the light of Shiva and Archangel Micheal clear away my fears of unworthiness surrounding health, on any level, and send the light of the Divine Mother to infuse every cell of my energy body and physical body with regenerative growth and powerful Love. Thank you for reminding me through messages, signs and angelic support, that I am capable of becoming the new me, and releasing with peace, all that which no longer serves my purpose. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Whether we are seeking connection to ourselves in a new or ancient way, may we do so with the knowledge that our Soul is radiant light, and we are each shining the way for others, whether consciously or unconsciously in this myriad connection of humans and light matrix.
Thank you for shining!

with light, compassion, and empathy for all of our struggles and miracles in growth,

Spiritual ‘Doorways’

To allow for the essence of incarnated being to exist, we must each pass through a doorway so to speak, an entrance into the physical, when we are born. Babies come with the potential to emit their own frequency, to gift the world their own unique music of soul and light essence and physical matter, for however long they live. Some may be a heartbeat, that resonated across a community or family, some may grow to be a wisdom keeper, an elder for their tribe or country, yet for however long ,the individual exists as an intersection of energy, their music of self, their unique resonance combines with our overall chorus, or rainbow of individual and collective vibrancy, and helps build the waves of energy that move across this planet and reach out far beyond the stars our human eyes can perceive.

When a baby is seeking to make the initial jump into physical being, their soul wraps itself around the parents, whispering the potential of the life that could come through, with the two individuals partnership. That soul then waits for the doorway that symbolizes the set of lessons they have sought to experience. Perhaps it is to be cradled in a womb, with love and joy, perhaps it is a long life that reaches our and opens doorways for other lives to enter. The Divine Source holds and nourishes every Soul that has been incarnated, or seeks to be incarnated in the future. I often see the little ‘lights’ the potential of babies that are seeking parents with the particular genetic, emotional, spiritual coding that offers them the lessons they are eager to explore during a physical incarnation. For everyone I ‘see’ or hear’ I say this prayer ‘May your soul find a home in the physical realm that adds beauty, truth and depth to the human experience. May the Divine Source help carry you into a life with the potential for Joy. Amen, OM and Aho.’ I say the prayer and see them choose parents, or recede back into the network of light that is energy around us all, ebbing and flowing, waiting and moving, wrapping about those who do have bodies and imploring us to each to see and feel , and be connected to the miracle that manifest life offers.

The energy of the manifest universe moves and combines in a similar fashion to the way a rainbow becomes visible with the right combination of water and sunlight. The potential for matter, for shifts in consciousness, all of the ‘ingredients’ that can combine to bring about a massive shift on the earth physically, or the uplifting energy waves that can accelerate the collective consciousness of people on the earth, at any given time. This cosmic energy exists and moves, sometimes directed by the thought patterns that people contribute, by the natural worlds evolution through time or space, and through the ‘agreement’ that souls make when they move from light body to physical being. In my humble perception at this time, I see us all like intersections of ‘light’ or energy. We emit our own unique frequency but are an alchemical combination of the building blocks of physical matter and energy and soul essence that allow us to exist consciously in both individual and mass connection as the human race. As individual energy nodes, we can refract light, like a rainbow from rain and sunlight, on different wavelengths based on the current life choices we are making, combined with the wisdom/karmic debris our Soul brings forth from previous lifetimes or light systems.

During our life walks, when we have entered the physical, we each are given choices through the Law of Free Will, about what spectrum of light, soul essence or divine alchemy, we wish to emit. Like the original doorway of energy, when we miraculous blended the spirit of self into the human body and became both greater soul, connected to a soul group, as well as human consciously experiencing life, the subsequent ‘doorways’ during our life path can ask for a s similar level of courage. We walk through these energy gateways several times during our lifetimes, and for those with heightened sensitivities, it may seem as though a life and death cycle is being replayed during each major transition. What will we each choose as ‘doorways’ swing open, the tidal pull of the energy of collective emotion, or individual and earth inspired Peace? A universal ‘doorway’ can be evident when a child transitions from youth to adulthood. This shifting of energy can be honoured by the traditional practices of many indigenous peoples in which test of physical strength and courage, mental, emotional and spiritual endurance mark the end of youth and the beginning of woman or man. Other personal doorways can when a persons spiritual power seeks expression int he physical world. We each must choose to honour and explore or strengthen our particular sensitivities or to keep them hidden or suppressed. I have ‘seen’ those doorways open many times for people, and the choices to commit to a path that honours the soul, or continues to be familiar is a kind of life/death/rebirth. Most people are given choices several times through out their lives to walk through ‘doorways’ into different levels of being or consciousness.
Some peoples choices surrounding moving forward with a new cycle of life lessons, karmic unfolding and spiritual exploration, can feel as if they are actually living several lifetimes during one lifetime. As if each new completion of energy, gave way to an entirely new combination of hues from the rainbow spectrum we each carry. We also individually and collectively pass doorways on the energy realm that connect us with different lifespans. With Clairvoyance I have ‘seen’ two different times during my current life walk in which on a Soul level I could have chosen to transition back into light, or continue in this current body with a new wave of energy saturating my life. The soul sees in many directions at once.

If we feel that we are approaching a doorway, between life and death, or a new level of being, between bringing forth a child, or resurrecting a level of childlike innocence and beauty within ourselves, here is a prayer/affirmation I have used, that I offer for those who are seeking:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to feel connected to all of the light I am capable of channelling forth from the spiritual realm into the physical world. Please help me to have courage, as I acknowledge the ways my conscious self is becoming deeper, holding a greater capacity for compassion and grace in this world. Please let me clearly see the pathways of learning new lessons before me, so that I can navigate these life changes with resilience, patience and bravery.

Let me be a bridge between Soul and earth for my current lifespan and for those who seek to be brought forward alongside, with, or through me. And if some choose a path that is shorter, let me be there on the spiritual, physical, emotional or mental level, to hold them in my heart, as they transition through the network of light into the heart of God/dess once more.

Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

May we each receive the Divine Love and support we need through transitory times.

with light and respect,
Kamia
