Reception and the Timelessness of Being

 I meet people every day, who see between realities; into fairy, onto the planes of those that are still in the process of joining light, acting as guides and guardians, ascended masters and angelic beings.  I notice the beauty of their gifts, even while seeking to send them a prayer for self acceptance.  Sometimes the road is many lifetimes long, and for those of us who have the capacity to share with art or words or healing touch, gentle encouragement of unfolding, we are blessed with the responsibility of amplifying the radiance in others.

Many people are born with a high sensitive awareness of the spirit realm.  In certain cultures this can be validated through oral traditions, ancestral teachings, or a devout culture of spiritual practice. Praying over places on the earth where great trauma has occurred, for example, helps to unlock and invite healing into the memory the earth plane carries, as well towards the energy imprint that Souls who past in such places have left. In other cultures such as the west, some people with high sensitivities, and several life times worth of divine wisdom to share, may choose to block reception to feel a greater sense of ‘belonging’ in environments that do not prioritize spiritual gifts.The awareness of the Soul, however is not dampened permanently, it is rather like turning down the volume of a radio, reception is still occurring regardless of the volume we have sought to implement.  At different times in life, a person may undergo a powerful life change and seek to open, tune in anew, or raise the volume of their receptive qualities once more.  During times such as these, life in general can have a sense of being overwhelming.  Just like a high volume on the radio, we drown out different receptive qualities, based on that which we highlight, or choose as priority of focus.  For example, much of waking life requires attention to detail; driving, chores, work tasks, family care taking.  Yet, there is a portion of our awareness that is constantly receiving intuitive information; a field that held a battle of long ago, a building with deep sorrows and many innocent deaths, a roadway where a spirit travels seeking to understand that the body no longer houses them, and their family is far away.  We may also be receiving the imprint of Ley lines, the patterns of energy that move in conjunction with this blessed earth, where power flows to direct pure water, regrowth, animal interconnectivity, and doorways between realities.  Like overlapping pieces of silk, the fold of time and space, allow those with a particular ‘knowing’ to perceive both the beauty that this earth offers us all, and the pathways that have been walked before us, and beyond us, in a circular reception of manifestation.

 

In previous blogposts and for entire chapters of ‘Soul Evolution’ I have discussed the concept that sending a prayer out into the cosmos, through my clairvoyant perception, is like a beam of light that travels seamlessly through time and space and can effect positive change on multiple levels of being.  For those who are just discovering, or (rediscovering) their gifts I offer this Prayer:

 

“Dear Divine Source, Please send angelic warriors to the space surrounding these readings, to cut through chords of lower vibrations related to fear, or disempowerment sent forward through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual pathways in any direction of time or space.  Please surround these people with an aura of Divine Love, Light and Protection, so that encased in a globe of radiance, their own beautiful Soul’s feel safe to share and express the gifts brought forward into this life-walk.  May the messages that are received, for each persons particular sensitivities, be accompanied by the comfort and solace of their Guides and Guardian Angels.  Please send clear messages each time they ask, for healing, health, courage and grace to be present to remind them, they are not alone in their ‘knowing’.  May all feel connected at the heart to the potential of this wondrous planet for evolution and change,  And may all receive support on a daily basis from nature to encourage further ‘knowing’.  With gratitude for the many light based peaceful warriors who are incarnated at this time, Amen, OM and Aho.”

How do we direct the flow/reception of our intuitive divine source guided wisdom, to be received and processed in the most healthful for our individual beings experience? The first step, is of course to accept that this reception is occurring. Through acceptance we work towards an assimilation of all that we are.  Discernment of that which we receive that is distraction, or clearing of karmic debris, vs that which we receive as possible timelines for a betterment of humanity as a whole is a lifelong process.

What barriers we choose to create as filters of the stimulus our body and being seek to assimilate into daily life must, however, be an individually determined pathway.  Some people may chose to devote a meditative space to each day for reception and integration; ten minutes less sleep at the beginning of the day as the sun rises, and the intentions for wellness are offered forth into the day.  Others may have an hour a week, a carefully protected space of time and energy they utilize through journalling, movement or art.  Some may wait a decade and book a vacation retreat during which the backlog of receptive knowing rockets through the consciousness in a massive wave.

Any tools we give ourselves for sorting through that which we receive, ideally help to increase our vital life stores and self esteem. For those who are seeking to shift conscious levels of being in a more focused daily manner I offer this gentle practice that has been useful for me over many years.  Again, the words used, the time allotted, each is can be based on what ‘resonates’ for the individual who is practicing.

  • When seeking to reconnect with the many levels of being, to assimilate messages from this physical reality, yet to identify and move through the imprints of energy that are all around us each day, we begin by purifying the body.   Some people may choose to pray over a glass of water each morning, (‘Soul Evolution’ offers prayerful words and practice for clearing the energy of a fresh new day,) for clarity and cleansing.  We honour that these bodies are the receptive tuning instruments for the vibrational spectrum of reality in all ways.  (Physical level of Being)
  • Next we ask for protection and grace from the Divine.  The God/dess that resonates with us most in name, image or feeling.  Ascended Masters can act as resources for learning, but Divine Source is what ultimately allows us to surround our energetic being with light and shield. (Spiritual level of Being)
  • From a place of protection we create a solid framework on the energy plane by acknowledging that which we are willing to receive throughout the day; this can be simple such as these two  phrases I have often used:

 “I am Willing only to explore Joy and Lightness of Being today.” 

Or 

“Today I honour grief I am currently releasing from this and previously lifetimes, with assistance form the Angelic Beings in alignment with me at this time, for  aligning with divine health.”

Giving ourselves permission to voice with the power of our will that which we are willing to receive throughout the day can have profound effects on our life experience.  (Mental level of Being)

  • Next we tune in to the emotional experience our day flows through.  We may have feelings of sorrow and joy, boredom and humour, elation and despair during one days cycle.  We feel so deeply on the human plane, and it is such a gift to experience the intensity and learning that emotions offer.  Throughout the day, we can explore how each emotional experience relates to the intention we set forth.  When we asked for a joyful day, what occurred?  Did we take note of the joyous flight of a bird, even as we witnessed sorrowful experience in those around us, both living or on the energetic level of being?  Did we see the beauty of a flower even as we sent a prayer for those who passed in distress in a place or location we inadvertently visited and ‘received’ an inner knowing about?  Emotions do not nullify our reception and integration of that which exists on the spiritual and physical plane.  We can have intense joy that exists alongside sorrow.  Our intention for the day will not halt our capacity to grow and experience life, yet it can help us to identify the resonance that we sought to align with.  Some of my deepest understandings of Joy came during tragic moment in my life.  When the depth of Love and appreciation of this experience of living was so poignantly clear. (Emotional Level of Being)

A day lived with a return to attention of that which surfaced as the mind awoke and the spirit and body recognized union of self, can afford a deep level of Peace when repetitively practised.  When we stop blocking our intuitive wisdom, we often experience a profound shift in Perception.  We may over time explore new jobs, partnerships, relationships with ourselves and the world at large.  Or we may simply find that the vitality of each day has become more vibrant as we embraced a more unified understanding of our own gifts. Choosing self discipline for repetitive spiritual sacred space and awareness can effect massive life shifts.  The wellspring of wisdom that so many Souls carry, could shift the energy of this world in miraculous ways.  Yet, to do so, we must all make free will choices to allow ourselves to ‘see’ Clairvoyance, ‘feel’ Clairsentience, ‘hear’ Clairaudience and ‘know’ Claircognition, more. 

 

Patience and compassion for ourselves and the world at large.

Dream States and the Edge of Consciousness

As with all sentient beings, we act as a type of ‘filter’ for divine source.  We see and reflect, refract and transmutes the divine source, the fabric of the manifest universe, that is birthed into matter, and light, and wisdom and collective unconscious.  We can purify the filters over the course of a thousand lifetimes, to ‘see’ or perceive in incredible ways.  We may also incarnate and have the ability to ‘see’ through multiple levels of reality after carrying light in a specific way from only a few lifetimes.  

Each person is capable of offering their particular aspect of light expansion, in their own unique way.  One personas beauty does not cancel out the beauty of another persons entirely different and still valuable, gifts. Indeed, some of the very opposite in perception can weave together beautifully to create a framework, or tapestry of thought and possibility that deeply benefits the world at large.  Physically minded or spiritually minded, emotionally sensitive, or mentally focused, together each can offer explanations that deepen another individuals connection to their life path by helping to activate cultural or spiritual Memory for a more empowered sense of belonging and compassion.

We all have ways that we ultimately allow for a relaxation of the mind, to create space for heightened sensitivities on the spiritual realm. When I focus my clairvoyance, to ‘look’ and to ‘see’ when someone has asked me for guidance, it is a relaxation of the mind not a huge effortful push.  Like a person who is drifting off into a renewing slumber, we can relax into the navigation of different levels of consciousness.  Relaxation does not mean the same thing for every individual.  Relaxation for one might only happen when intense physical activity has occurred.  In the expression of adrenalin, they open up a space within the consciousness mind to feel ‘safe’ directly afterwards or during, because truly being relaxed for that person might actually equate to physical strength  as indications of safety.  Another may find a pathway through to their akashic record or wisdom through deep mediation in solitude.  In a space with no other humans, they commune with nature, and in this manner can ‘relax’ into opening up their inherent sensitivities such as clairaudience or clairsentience. 

 For those whom are seeking to begin a new cycle of connecting with their particular gifts, I offer the following as gentle suggestions to be explored. *Encouraging each reader to allow their instinctive understanding of their most powerful pathways of self to be their guides, your way may already be more effective for you than the below suggestions.*

1.) Identify when one is truly relaxed.  Is it a relaxation of the physical body that we equate with sensitivity, or is it a pathway that we honour or ignore in another aspect of being?  When do we notice/connect that the reception of our 6th sense was heightened.  For example, when travelling in other countries, because I am not often distracted by my native language, I am more relaxed in ‘listening’ with all of my senses to understand what the emotional, mental or physical climate of my direct surroundings are.  In many ways I would not have equated travelling alone through countries of vast cultural differences as relaxing, and yet with self analysis I can acknowledge that this is so.

2.) Allow for the possibility of this same ‘relaxation’ into conscious expanded reception with clear energy boundaries.  Many people with heightened sensitivities are afraid that in being ‘open’ they will attract harmful and fearful experiences.  This is a valid fear.  A relatable example of this is when we choose to close a door at our physical house, so that we can safely clean, cook and fulfill responsible action.  We do so to indicate to the world at large that they are not welcome without invitation.  For anyone opening gently their psychic perceptions, it is incredibly important to do so in manner that is ‘safe’ with energy boundaries in place.  For further reading on how to create healthful boundaries visit blogpost: Boundaries and Personal Power

3.) Practice.  Practice with recording ones perceptions, practice compassion for the self when it feels unfamiliar to be that trusting of intuitive information.  Practice encouraging those in our lives to trust themselves and their instincts, to learn hard or soft lessons, to take chances in verbally or artistically expressing their heightened natural perceptions.  We all have our own unique path to dance, or climb or fight or meditate through.  We get to be uniquely beautiful in all the stages.

4.) Honestly review what amount of time during ones day or week feels as though it has honoured the perceptions one carries.  Do we allow ourselves to be relaxed and receiving of divine source and guidance every day?  Once a week? Only in times of tragedy?  How does that allotment of ‘time’ or reception sit with us and the goals we hold for a compassionate view of ourselves and our world?  Again there is no ‘right’ time allotment. Some people will live a very fulfilling life having experienced one divinely connected moment for their entire incarnation.  Others will seek expanded levels of consciousness daily.  We get to determine what feels ‘right’ for us in this lifetime, and through the Law of Free Will, we get to change that pattern if after a span of months or years or generations, we are ready for something else.

5.) Keep a sense of humour. Without humour I would never have truly accepted my gifts.  I can laugh at myself and the world.  I can laugh with delight, with outrage with sorrow and with joy.  The movement of the diaphragm during laughter helps to stimulate the third chakra, the power centre at the navel.  Be powerful, clear the energy in the room, space, family or workplace.  Spiritual perceptions can be incredibly serious, but they can also have the beauty of lightheartedness as we explore and practice.

A prayer that I have found useful for those who notice the vibrational shift when affirming/praying aloud is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for this life.  Help me to see myself and my evolution as a tool that amplifies the compassionate experience and unfolding in connection to the world at large, of our greater collective unconscious.  Thank you for helping me to expand my energy field to feel more rooted to this planet, so that as I open etherically, I do so with balance through my feet and being on this wondrous planet.  Please help me to find ways to express this unfolding, in service to mass consciousness and to the earth, the planet, the animals, other people, my family and community and my own individual experience.  Please help me to shield from lower vibrations that distract from Divine Love, and to feel connected {every day, once a month, during the year} as is most healthful for me at this time. Thank you for this assistance on every level, Amen, Om and Aho.”

At the edges of our conscious mind we are each consistently receiving waves of energy.  Some are lower frequency and may have fear associated with them.  Some are bright and light and beautiful and help us to see the potential for mankind on this planet.  Like radio stations we tune into, we are each a filter for the energy that pervades the manifest universe.  What are the ways we are all filtering and receiving and sharing for this new shift of time and purpose?  What aspects of the Divine do we openly allow to infuse our energy body and beam out towards the world at large?

This year, may we each make conscious choices about the ways we are conduits of Light,

With respect and appreciation for all those who are shining,

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,

Unification of Being

A simple conscious practice of Breathing to centre and align throughout the day and before major life changes. Drawing in Personal Power on the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical levels of Being.

Every minute of every day we are all receiving multiple levels of information. We may train our focus to receive on the physical, to be processing through the five senses we are culturally conditioned to rely upon. We may choose to be very mentally focused, to sort through patterns, memories, worries or plans as we project our #consciousness forward and backwards or in a circle of time. We may be focused on the emotional level, the feelings of people surrounding us or those we are carrying currently in our emotional duffel bag. Yet, regardless of intentional focus, we are still receiving further information on the etheric level, through our #6thsense ; the #energy of a place, the resonance of water or earth, the imprints of what has been, people who passed or angelic beings seeking to connect us with our most Divinely radiant self. Even if we train our focus to connect on the spiritual level for as little as 8mins a day, we help to open to a more expansive feeling of #hope and #peace for our selves and the collective consciousness. We can do so with simple #affirmations or #prayers such as thinking or saying aloud “I am willing to receive all light based messages and intuitive gifts from Divine Source at this time” and literally setting a timer for 8 minutes. Perhaps images rise in the consciousness, or intense feelings, memories we are working beyond, or music or words. Anyway we take notice of reception with #faith in our own capacity for self #knowledge, can be honored.

May we feel our #sacred channels of reception and intuitive healing open today, and may we take the necessary action to continue on paths of personal and universal #healing.

Author of ‘The Seventh Sister; A Story of the Divine Feminine

Will and the Word

Energy healers, shamans, medicine people, light workers, and the teachers of many ancient spiritual mysteries, were aware of the power of intent and Personal Will.
Through my clairvoyant perceptions, the Law of Free Will when utilized, looks like strands of energy woven together that surrounds each individual. When able to harness our core essence, and project it outwards into such a light web, we create a safety net and personal boundary framework to filter out that which we are not willing to attract, and to amplify and welcome energy one has chosen to draw towards the self and into the Soul Path.
Through a belief in free will, we are able to choose different pathways, renegotiate said pathway, turn around and climb a few stairs to a new trail, or meander in any direction along our Soul Path. The concept of ‘The Law of Free Will’ is a popular term in current spiritual teachings. The law of Free Will dictates that in our current incarnations, we have multiple potentials for making a wide variety of choices that bring us closer to, or further away from, our core resonance and Divine gifts.

Willpower is a very real tool for etheric levels of creation. If one has a strong connection to ones core, the ‘Will’ broadcasts an equally strong framework/web/ safety net of all that which one has chosen or continues to choose in the future. The words that we think or choose to voice have as much power as we give them. For example, we can infuse the words ‘I Love You’ with incredible energy and power to change another perceptions of the light that is offered them the manifest universe. When we make a conscious choice, and give voice through prayer in our minds/hearts, written word, or speaking out loud, we create an energy field that honours that choice. Perhaps it will take an individual years of practice to connect with their internal power source, their core essence, or perhaps a person will incarnate with intuitive trust in utilizing this will. It is through directing our Will that we may choose to learn in a new way, to navigate massive life changes with struggle or harmony. For example, a pattern of repeating words in our head, whether in self support or criticism, clearly emits on the etheric level, and often manifests as a self fulfilling prophecy either for positive or negative manifestation and attraction.

To maintain the power of the framework we have set, we can choose to maintain commitment of personal will whenever thoughts or challenges, surrounding a choice surface. A person could for example choose to draw upon their core essence, and the power source of the divine networked of lIght, God/dess, to create a framework of ‘I will only attract positive opportunities for career/relationship/personal health development.’ The power of this statement relays on the power of the persons personal Will to build the framework that filters or amplifies. The framework is supported by the actions that also support each opportunity for growth.

For those who seek to identify current patterns, to renegotiate energy exchange and to voice their personal Will through words of power, I first allow my senses to unfold and to visualize myself within a pillar of white light. (White light is a powerful way to hold all external energy at bay, while the internal self re-configures and grounds into empowered being.) Once incased in white light, through the power of Will one can use a prayer/mantra/affirmation such as this:

“I call on the Divine Source to infuse my being with clarity and wisdom. To identify the patterns of manifestation, personal self worth and potential that I carry within my subconscious and conscious being. Please send the light of Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through fear based self fulfilling prophecies, so that more space is available in my energy body to be infused with empowered light. I am ready to grow and will approach this growth with courage and resilience. Thank you God/dess for guiding my new levels of awareness in a healthful and easily assimilated manner, and for opening new levels of consciousness through clairvoyance, clairaudiance, claircognition and clairsentience that remind me of all of the choices I may Freely make. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

We are each asked to clearly identify the current patterns and energy field we are broadcasting on a deep level. Do we truly believe we deserve to fail due to circumstances in adolescence or previous decades? Do we choose to take the steps towards our ultimate goals through struggle, with the will to persevere? Do we actually allow our true sense of personal Power, our Will, to be present in all of our decision making? Or are we giving our personal power away to an external force, another person, or self destructive familiar pattern?

What do we each ‘see’ or ‘feel’ is revealed through this devotion of energy and focus to truly perceiving our current life choices? What empowered aspects of self do we now choose to honour or courageously step forward towards? Ancient cultures fostered dreamers, those who could see beyond the physical, to the potential of what had been, could be or might be through the Will and focus of individuals or the masses. What does our individual heightened awareness allow us to Dream for humanity as a whole?
We are all powerful beings, especially when we give ourselves permission to trust the incredible power of our core self, and to direct this with our Free Will to affect personal and cosmic change.

May we each remember to be powerful,
with light,

*Fostering imagination and expansive thought can be a powerful tool towards self empowerment as an energy worker. I was battling my way through adolescence towards elf acceptance, I loved to visit the walls of books one of my siblings had amassed. From floor to ceiling, shelves held the precious colourful escape, many highly sensitive individuals seek when attempting to synthesis their multi-dimensional perceptions with the current culturally accepted ‘world’. Fantasy books are filled with gems of wisdom; energy work, commitment to a heroines or hero’s quest towards personal enlightenment, struggle, loss, colour and magical spirit guides in the forms of mythical creatures and landscapes. The phrase “The Will and the Word’ often appears in the delightful fantasy series ‘The Belgariad’ by David Eddings.

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.

with light,
Kamia

Through time immemorial, many people have existed and flourished with an acceptance and development of their gifts for heightened sensitivities.

In western culture there is a current cultural pattern that influences many for suppressing their particular gifts and awareness of the greater interconnectedness of all life, through time and space. This vein of energy can often strongly impact people during adolescence and childhood if they are not receiving encouragement for exploring the ways in which they ‘feel’ (clairsentience), ‘see’ (clairvoyance), ‘hear’ (clairaudience) or ‘spontaneously understand’ (claircognition), the world around themselves.

As a highly sensitive individual, it was during the years in which I devoted time and energy to self acceptance and exploration of my particular sensitivities that I began to feel truly connected to the world at large, people surrounding the planet, and the Joy and Love this human experience offers us each. Heightened sensitivity can bring about wide ranges of emotional experience. If we acknowledge the absolute beauty of this world, we will also be asked to acknowledge the opposite aspects, the life and death and rebirth, the pain or sorrow or grief. A wider range of emotional experience in relationship to the world at large, is often an indicator of a spiritually sensitive energy body.  When tragedy occurs on the planet, for example, we may be called, like beacons of light, to illuminate the pathways that Souls may travel as they transition back into light bodies. As a spiritual Guide for Souls moving from one level of being into the next, can be an underdeveloped gift that many carry in western culture. Other highly sensitive spiritual open individuals, may feel that they have a purpose for infusing places and groups of people on the planet with Love, that their waking life is filled with prayers for those on the planet who are struggling.  Others still may feel that their empathy guides them to take physical action, to offer support, aid, volunteering or the creation of non-profit organizations.  Their spiritual offerings and physical action, a direct link between their Soul Purpose and this and previous lifetimes.  Being a bridge between worlds can have a taxing effect on many levels. The practice of re-grounding through connection with the earth-physical reality and ones self is often a vital aspect of being for the highly sensitive. Spiritual travel, through the astral body, whether in meditation, subconscious movement, or during sleep like states, are some of the ways in which we can be moving through different levels of reality to help align, guide, assist or brighten the light connections of the manifest universe.
Through each level of movement or experience, the gift that this Life continuously offers us, it to return and be fully present in our physical selves, on this beautiful Earth. Whether in a simple garden, or out exploring a wild space, our intuitive wisdom will guide us each to the landscapes that help us feel anchored and grounded into our present lifetimes and physical bodies. Snow for example, is a softening on the etheric level, a dampening and purifying for toxic or fearful vibrations.  People refer to a fresh snowfall as ‘a blanket of snow’ and on the energy level, this is also very true, as the frozen water helps to calm and let sleep, all that which is ready to transform, grow and rebirth when the needed time and seasons have passed.

For those who are living and sharing light in city scape, or a climate that at this time does not offer the silence and stillness of freshly fallen snow, please join me for a gentle meditative moment in some life-force renewing, winter woods:

 

For those that do not have access to video streaming a simple version of this prayer is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to lay the heavy burdens of emotional energy that I have been carrying, from both myself and others, onto the soft Earth.  Please help me to release this heaviness so that the energy may transform. I am willing to trust that as the seasons shift on this planet, so to will my perception, openness and grace, continue to grow and evolve.  Thank you for sending me clear messages, guidance and Peace through the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fair Kingdom and Spirit Guides that are working alongside me at this time, and thank you for helping me feel connected to this planet, my current lifetime, and all of the Love that is available in this manifest universe.  Amen, Om and Aho.”

May we each feel the expansiveness of Soul and Divine Source (God/dess), as well as the blessings of physical being on this wondrous planet.

With light,

“Near the base of the Himalayas I had a very powerful dream. During an astral projection, I followed the pathway of the light chord that connects my present incarnation up through the stars to where my greater Soul, and the Light Beings with whom it works, were weaving light. The ‘weaving’ was a joint intentional creation of energy and opportunity being spun together by a balanced group of high vibrational beings. These beings had agreed to work together to send Light and energy down toward the Earth and into the conscious or subconscious minds to the Souls presently incarnated. I perceived the figures as seated in a lotus position, because, I believe, it would be an easily interpreted image for a human to return with. They were surrounded by stars and looked down into a large pool of light. The stars stretched across the sky and all sides of the figures including beneath their suspended forms and the light pool. Surrounding them, translucent with the stars shining through, were similar shapes of the Himalayas. I as a human currently in the Himalayas, was made to feel safe although I was witnessing something far vaster than my human consciousness experienced on the physical plane.

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
