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.

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,

Far Seeing; Past and Previous Lifetimes

When we seek to re-pattern a conditioned ‘Etheric level’ response we have carried from this or previous lifetimes, we are often challenged to ‘master’ the new pattern through recreating the original challenge a number of times.  For myself, in this current life, I began to notice that I often repeated a challenge/situation/learning experience three times before mastery was achieved. Given that this awareness was evident in more than one learning scenario, I offer to readers who are currently clearing karmic debris from this and previous lifetimes, some of the practices that have helped me on my evolving journey of life.

Many spiritual seekers hope that instantaneous healing will occur when heightened sensitivities or knowledge is present.  Yet, it is in working with the information that we receive/remember that helps to build solid foundations we can grow and evolve beyond. As a young child I would often ‘re-visit’ lifetimes in which a pattern had established itself.  For example, when I was exploring a reoccurring back pain in my youth, I revisited an early lifetime in which I had received a wound that changed the shape of my back.  In this previous lifetime I learned to adapt and move even with injury.  In this current lifetime, through this awareness, I was able to send healing light to the cellular levels of my body in meditation, to alter my physical regime and to evolve over a series of ten years, to a place where my back pain is non-existent.  

Though I have had spontaneous realizations that afforded instant results and healing in certain circumstances, not all past life karma will be removed without attentive practice and perseverance in current lifetimes.  Re-patterning our response in certain human relationships for example, can be based on the spiritual/energy level, through multiple lifetimes of devotion to a manner of being.  When we choose to shift into another energy frequency, we may re-recreate the familiar pattern multiple times as we learn to master our own awareness, devotion of Will and resilience to being ‘tested’ in such away through our co-creation of the familiar. A pattern that has been handed to us ancestrally, can be broken in one lifetime, a pattern we have carried through a thousand lifetimes, can still be broken in one lifetime.  Breaking patterns takes hard work and oftentimes some sweat and tears.  We are resilient, miraculous, beaming light beings, yet it is the restraints we have laid upon ourselves in the patterns repeated that were not for our highest good, that require some of the deepest wells of self forgiveness, compassion, patience and determination to change.

A prayer/affirmation/vision seeking practice that I have used with success is:

copyright Kamia Shepherd, ‘Spider Woman’ by Jane Shepherd from ‘Soul Evolution’

“Dear Creator and Divine Source, please surround me in light.  Emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally, may I be elevated with Divine Love to clearly see and take ownership for the patterns I have the power to change.  With the assistance of Spider Woman who offers threads from this or previous lifetimes please help me notice reoccurring memories, insight, or awarenesses that help me on my determined path towards Freedom. I am willing to see, feel, know and understand the origin of this pattern, so that I may forgive myself and other, and move beyond it.  Thank you for the presence of Archangel Raphael, the gentle light of healing, for Archangel Jophiel and Quan Yin for their gifts of perching the beauty in all my experiences and  being merciful in my self judgments. I also accept the assistance of people in my life that are teachers for growth and further healing.  Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

The people that manifest can teach us in positive and challenging ways.  We may find we interact with another person also seeking to clear on a similar pattern level.  Or we may seek professional assistance, energy workers for clearing karmic debris as Light-facilitators, psychotherapists for helping us re-pattern on the mental level, physical therapists for helping us make a new kind of peace with our bodies in this life, or counsellors for new emotional navigation tools. We may also begin to dream in a new way, where a dream journalling helps us to imprint in our consciousness our openness to exploring the original moment in which the pattern was created.  Past-life and akashic record accessing work can be very deep. Asking for, and fostering spiritual protection when exploring far-memory is key.  If we are not solid in our energy boundaries for reception and integration of this energy, then we can instead choose to be self forgiving and focused upon current life experience being as positive, energizing, healthful and joyous as we are able to manifest with our current tools.  There is no rush to enlightened being.  The beautiful earth hosts us over and over, continuously sending waves of light from Divine source towards us.  We grow, we rest, we grow some more.  May we do so with an ample supply of patience, compassion and Grace,

With Light,

Kamia

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.

With light,

Kamia

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,

Trees and Ancient Wisdom

What does the gift of a tree offer us on the etheric level?  We are all empowered to explore that devotion of meditative, transcendental energy.  Trees hold the history and ability to transcend different levels of being.  Their roots teach us of that which exists and anchors us bellow the surface of our own conscious minds.  Their core, the heart and trunk that grows and lives with sap beneath the surface, is so very like our own skin, holding our physical being enclosed and protected as the systems of life occur within our cells.  The branches reach to the light, even as the crown chakra , is every receiving the energy of the manifest universe, the potential to extend up beyond that which we see with physical being, and recharge from Divine Source.  When I began meditating with trees, I was a child.  I would hug close to my heart the ancient being and ‘ask’ to be shown the wisdom of their sentience.  Through the communion of trees, my clairvoyance would expand.  I would see how my rhythms of heart and my energy body would align with the patience of the tree, how the act of being close, and connecting my central nervous system in some manner with the stillness of the rooted being, brought about a deeper sense of calm, of timelessness.  I learned to see that which frustrated or annoyed or was fearful, as so small, in the vastness of season change, the warmth of sun and the exhilaration of wind. When I am in communion in this way, I feel bands of gold light connecting my chakras through my spine, to the centre of the tree.  I become aware of the way my energy body is opening ‘wings’ and gathering wind, sun, light, earth, and water.  With respect, I return to ones that resonate with Peace during times of duress.  Within every living being, is a lesson a teaching and a gift.  What will we develop in ourselves and this world at large through a devotion of time and energy to connecting and learning from other sentient beings? Meditation can be a sinking in, yet over time, it also is an expanding outwards, beyond the confines of physical self, to a deep appreciating for the hearts that beat within us, and the Soul that is so very vast and connected to Light in every direction through multiple dimensions.

On  a recent trip to India, I had the privilege and honour of being present for the planting of shoots, seedlings, from the bodhi tree that Buddha sat beneath during his realization of enlightenment.  The tree, like all living beings who’s life spans recreate themselves through time, carried the energy resonance of that moment, as well as an imprint of the potential shelter or safe haven for spiritual seekers should they choose to seek in a similar way. When I placed my hands at the base of the seedling honoured as the spirit of Truth, the image of three seedlings having the potential to weave together into a gentle dome, that invited in the awakening through heart chakra and crown charka energy, of those who sat within the dome was such that I am encouraged to share my gathered ‘Tree’ perceptions in the following manner:

For those that feel drawn to exploring the healing power of trees spiritually, to learn to explore individual gifts for being rooted into this present life, yet looking through a window of Soul into past lifetimes, and the approaching cycles of light that we may concrete in our future, I offer this simple practice:

Begin the day with gentle movement before stillness, this could be a walk int he sunrise, or gentle yoga, or even sitting and practicing neck rolls, anything that is a natural extension of the ways in which we are each drawn to connect with our physical anchor of self. We acknowledge and honour the body to create a safe harbour for our Spirit.

Breathing fully, visualize oneself as a tree.  The tree may always be the same, or it may change daily.  What flow of energy, feeling, sensation or being do we light heartedly invite?  Do we notice we are weighed down by a ‘load’ of some kind?  Are we reaching outwards with giant branches? Or are we a sapling just beginning?  In the process of developing and refining self awareness, what we each gather from practicing a simple visualization can be very rich.  Having noticed if our tree had creature living around or connected to it, what do we do with our observations?  Do we journal them down, so that further reflection can unfold? Or discuss with a loved one who is open to practising the same gentle exercise?

Sometime through out the day, visit a tree. A prayer that I use is:

“Thank you Divine Source for the bounty of Nature that offers us all so many gifts.  Please allow me to connect in a healing and compassionate way with the wisdom of this forest, and this particular tree, to see, feel and hear that which can be of the greatest service to myself and the world at large, at this time.  Thank you Amen, Oma and Aho.”

It can be that we practice in a forest, or in a meditative state.  What tree holds particular significance for our energy field expansion? To connect with a tree that holds personal Power anywhere on the globe can be done in deep levels of meditation, or it can be physically connecting through a hug, a hand placed against, or leaning with ones spine alongside a local tree.  As sensitivity develops, as we each release the ego or fear based thought patterns that may block our receptive qualities, we may find that the Self connects in new or very ancient ways with the energy source of a tree. If the meditation expansion to an alternate place was chosen, make space to visit a local tree for at least 4mins of communion to anchor the experience. Thank the tree for any wisdom gathered, shared or remembered.

*This is a simple and beautiful practise that can be shared with our children and loved ones. Sometimes we may feel the natural creative manifestation to draw paint or otherwise depict ‘our’ Tree of self.  When we work with e spiritual unfolding, it is a gift we can give ourselves and the world at large to bring forth in a creative fashion, that which we have learned spiritually.

May we be like and connected with the Trees.  May we grow and receive, and grow some more, and leave the seeds of our deepest levels of Compassion, for future generations to grow alongside.

With light and respect for ancient, new or evolving cultures reverence for sacred Trees,

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,

Inter Dimensional Awareness

Inter dimensional travel can simply refer to a persons capacity to retain information gathered while there consciousness travels free of their physical location on the planet, wether in meditation or sometimes in sleep.  

img_5005

To traverse realities, we simply are allowing an expansion of consciousness, a ‘larger view’ or a ‘higher perspective’ from our physical space occupied in the body we incarnated into for this life walk.  To travel inter dimensionally, a Soul may incarnate with past life knowledge of moving through different levels of the manifest reality. They may spend time exploring an alternate reality, a space in which their current life could have deviated and taken an alternate path.  They may find themselves in lower dimension, one in which the world does not appear to be as pristine in natural resources as we still currently, miraculously get to occupy in this Life.  People may also travel to higher dimensions, and when the terms ‘higher or ‘lower’ are used, this references the overall vibration, the energy resonance of the ‘place.’ Just like physical mass in our current reality, that vibrates on a molecular level at a lower speed than the air we breathe, the lower dimensions, dominant vibration is slower, while a ‘higher’ dimension which may afford inspiration from ascended masters, or entrance to a place such as ‘Shambala’ or other evolved beings who teach those who travel greater tools for navigating this current reality with Peace and Compassion for utilizing innate healing abilities, resonates at a ‘faster/higher’ energetic level.

As a person who identifies the difference between waking and sleeping dreams as having very different textures; times in which travelling astrally affords a new level of wisdom for working with my gifts of clairvoyance vs dreams in which experiences throughout the day or this current life offer up new perspectives or learning, I began to integrate early in my life, that this current lifetime is rich with beauty for much of this wondrous planet, and is therefor the dominant experience of consciousness, the ‘home’ that is returned to from other places for many.  We have access to fresh air and pure water, enough for the entire planet should innovative teachings from visionaries or healers of different modalities begin to inspire mass consciousness.

Between travelling through different levels of my own consciousness I gathered tools, teachings, and a deep appreciation each time I returned to this current level of being.

Some of the tools that can be of service to those who feel their Soul experience moves beyond their present life are as follows:

*Fresh air, food, and water feed the cells of this current body.  Through the level of resonance the bodies water cells are beaming at, a clearer capacity to choose when to return to ones body, and which dimensions draw us towards them, can be more accurately navigated. Amplification or balance at sacred places, or through holding a crystal can also encourage a ‘clear sighted; view of all that the consciousness expands into/towards/through.’ (*Please note, many highly sensitive individuals self medicate through toxic substances of alcohol or drugs to block their capacity to experience other realms. When encountering such individuals we can choose to send divine source towards them in a globe of soft pink (unconditional loving grace) that surrounds them with a prayer that they find the healing necessary to feel safe in their current body in all ways.)

img_6837 *A dream journal or a trusted friend or spiritual mentor to share experiences with.  As we grow, evolve and explore through out our lifetimes, we may find that a message we received, or a view we were given access to, comes into a relevant meaning several years form when we had it.  For example, I once ‘saw’ a reality in which I was in a future in which people are able to communicate on a much clearer telepathic and empathic level of being.  To ‘show’ a story to one another or a lesson/teaching through projecting the feelings and essence of an idea towards on another.  This had great gifts for healing.  Doctors and natural medicine healers were working in teams to offer many options to each person who sought medical advice.  They received the agreed upon treatments from  western medicine, as well as energy work, emotional well being, mental health and natural medicine of plants and crystals.  In this current reality I have had the privilege of teaching energy awareness to some western medicine practitioners.  In those moments the dream/clairvoyant message rose once more in my consciousness, a gift to see the small part I was playing towards manifesting that future.

*There are no safe shortcuts.  This is a reminder that we are all encouraged to find our most natural communion with the Divine Source and our own Soul gifts.  We may feel that tools others offer resonate with us, and incorporate them into our daily practice or in retreat for devoted segments of time.  Yet we all unfold at the speed that is safest for integrating, aligning and assimilating with our current life path.  To open too quickly through toxins is dangerous. (For those whom have done so, and now seek to heal the holes in their aura that unwanted energies are coming through, or connected too, I pray that a healer of energy medicine enters your life to help close those doorways and  full detox with medical assistance when necessary, occurs.)  We open doorways to levels of being that can be very light  based and beautiful, but the doorways to places that have fear and pain as predominant energies also exist.  If a person is experiencing  powerful fear surrounding dreams/astrally travel/or movement between worlds, it is very important to find ways to navigate more safely, or to shield from those experiences.  Meditation has been a practice with incredible power passed through multiple religions, spiritual teachings and thousands of years.  Yoga also offers gifts of balance.  Ecstatic Dance can harness our energy in a new or balancing way, as well as practicing Mantra.  Forest Bathing or Salt water immersion can also clear our energy selves. Whatever modality, appeals naturally to the self, we instinctively ‘know’ that we are deserves tools on this plane of existence.  I have traveled through many dimensions in the course of this life, I do so with the most gifts of Love and safety when leading a healthful life of exercise in natural, pure foods, and meditation. I sincerely hope that those reading this have found and will continue to find tools that activate their higher perspective in a safe and conscious manner.

A prayer/affirmation/personal mantra that I have found useful is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess, Creator and Great Spirit, please guide me through the levels of consciousness that my current incarnation seeks to reveal at this time for the highest vibration of Peace, self knowledge and Healing.  Please allow me to remain connected to this body and time, so that I may travel safely through the etheric reality, and retain the knowledge that can be of most service to humanity and my own path of healing.  Please send the guides that I am aligned with at this time such Archangel Micheal and Shiva for safety, Kali or a Valkyrie for releasing lower energy that I seek to move beyond, White Buffalo Calf Woman for inner and world messages of Peace and any other angelic resonance or ascended masters, spirit guides or ancestors who step forward to be with me. Please help me to seamlessly integrate all messages and experiences, with gentleness and divine Assistance, and please help me to attract high vibrational friendships, teachers or students whom can benefit from the messages retained now and into the future. Thank you, Amen Om and Aho.”

With light and respect for those who see between worlds and realties,

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.

Pathways of Compassionate Light

“Coming to the earth plane is a soul level choice that we have all made during our cosmic evolution as incarnated beings at this time. The common threads of light that connect us are brilliant hues of varying vibrations, which have at their center the highest vibration: that of Divine Love. Although many will connect to Divine Love through the modality of different religions with varying names and manners of prayers, I truly believe that when we are connected to God/dess, what we are connecting to is the same radiance, the same light that permeates the universe and shines within us all; what people then choose to do with their inner light, is, of course, governed by the Law of Free Will. We all are given choices daily and throughout our lives to direct our light with free will. This theme repeats in many religions: when in communion with the highest manifestation of Love, we contribute most to the overall positive evolution of our individual lives, our communities, our species and the planet as a whole.
This book is a manifestation of my communion with my Higher Self, the cosmic universe as I perceive it at this time and a desire to communicate an affirmation of our capacity as humans to share in a daily realization of our souls’ ability to radiate and attract Love to the benefit of both soul path growth and universal blessings. In simple speak, this book is an exploration of each individual’s worthiness and capacity to be loved and express love to others. For ‘love’ is a word used daily in the ‘readings’ that I have facilitated for others and the messages I receive from the Angels most often is of teaching and encouraging others to love themselves and therefore share Love with the universe. It is the most prevalent and the ‘loudest’ message of them all.
Compassion and love for the self affords opportunities to heal our etheric, emotional, mental and physical bodies. Often people carry around an energy mantra of I am undeserving. This creates an energy field based on lack and so the energy of the universe that vibrates alongside the person is unbalanced and dim. To connect with pathways of compassionate light is to clear the energy field of the self with positive messages, such as: I can, I will, I deserve. This sends out a ‘chord’ of light to the universe that seeks to connect with the energy matrix uniting all living things: the mountains, the ocean, people, animals and the cosmos at large. Through being kind first to ourselves, feeding our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical bodies with positive energy and messages, we are able to become an intersection of light that is both supported and aids in sustaining the overall vibration of the universe. The Angels, Ascended Masters and our myriad array of Helpers from the Divine want us to love our Selves so deeply and truly that each cell in our magnificent body begins to vibrate with Love. This is the brightest, loudest, most powerful vibration. We cannot send out these powerful vibrations when we are feeding our own psyche with negative based thoughts. When we invest in ourselves with self-kindness, encouragement, compassion and grace, this personal loving care becomes an investment in the universe at large.”

“May all who read this be reminded daily that your Angels, Guides, Helpers, Higher Self and connection to God/dess is true and pure and that you are a manifestation of Divine Love in every cell of your body.
In offering of this recognition of the light within us all, I would like to share this affirmation that I have found useful for connecting to my Higher Self and the Light within the Universe:

“Dear Universal Consciousness, Archangels, Guardian Angels, Gods and Goddesses, Ascended Masters and Spirits of the Earth, please help me to recognize the light within others, let me perceive their highest vibrational potential so that I may be reminded of my own highest truth.”

Another variation of this affirmation is:

“May I speak, perceive and be a conduit of universal Love in all my actions, and may I forgive myself for the actions as a human that have filled me with guilt or fear, so that in releasing these fears, I make greater space for Love in all that I do. Help me [God/dess, Angels or the Ascended Master you feel most connected to at this time], on all levels to remain grounded into this present reality and incarnation so that I am able to manifest this Love on the physical plane. Amen. Om and Thanks.”

May we each follow pathways of Compassionate light within ourselves, our etheric levels of being and through collective consciousness as a whole.
