Lighting Our Way Through Dark Nights of the Soul

The Soul travels through time and space, retaining knowledge of what pathways of light are sustaining of hope, what pathways of choices ultimately contribute to collective despair. The Akashic Records and our multiple reincarnations offer us ample opportunities to identify when a pattern or challenge is familiar, and we are equipped with free will to navigate it in a variety ways. Each of us, on our human incarnated present journeys, are asked, tested, so to speak, by circumstances in life that we have co-created, on an etheric level, how will we deepen our reservoirs of compassion? How will we create bridges together through grief, to the bliss of being on all levels, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically aligned?

Every spiritual devotee and seeker, must exist in the physical world and must experience the trials of developing or ignoring their personal gifts, or enhanced perception. Yet with each individual that commits to celebrating their gifts, energy vibrations lighten for the generations that follow and for those people that are interacted with on a daily, or soul path, basis. Through acknowledging that we go through continuous cycles of rebirth, death and dying, through uncovering the joy that fills the space between each release of old patterns, we become like master builders/teachers on each level, capable of intentionally constructing networks of light that support, elevate and encourage the collective unconscious as it radiates Love.

When a spiritual seeker is developing their skills, we each are given ample opportunity to fine tune our intentions, strengths and faith. Like the tasks that heroes and heroines of old were asked to preform to become worthy of their titles, each person incarnated on the planet is offered multiple scenarios and learning experiences to finely tune their particular gifts. Some of the lessons we experience deepen our wealth of compassion; we may experience deep wells of grief, frustration, confusion or other forms of human suffering. Yet, through those experiences, we are all ultimately offered the choice of what we will actively contribute on a grander scale having explored and survived such scenarios. Do we choose to turn the depth of our emotional experience into a lantern, helping hand, or a beacon of hope for others? Or do we recreate the lesson multiple times by seeking out those who reflect the emotional intensity of a scenario that is familiar, as we are offered choices repeatedly on how we wish to develop or unfold?

Our energy selves yearn to unfurl, like the wings of birds or butterflies, or waves crashing against the shore. Our energy bodies are often held in tightly against our perception of what physical space we ‘should’ occupy as humans.
Yet, when our vast and Soul rich self, is acknowledged, we are offered gifts for perceiving how in previous lives, we also moved through and beyond challenges, ever evolving and deepening our knowledge and wisdom of human, and spiritual experience. What are the gifts that rush to the surface of the psyche when we create new space through release? We each have gifts that contribute to the gifts of others around the globe. One persons kind or brave act often inspires or assists another person in honing their particular gifts. An artists work with a subject matter of a trial or pattern they have recently chosen to move through and beyond, for example, may help acknowledge and then heal the emotional wounds another carries, whom then becomes an advocate for people in trauma, whom in turn one day choose to raise families with acceptance and compassion, whom in turn build new communities, businesses and stories of their own that effect thousands.

On days in which I acknowledge that something that has been familiar, is ready to transition into a natural death cycle in my psyche, I take a moment to consider all of the ways in which I have learned from the pattern I wish to release. If I sense a friendship, a past-life loved one, a job, a lifestyle choice, or a thought pattern, that I am ready to move beyond, I am best able to identify it by seeing/acknowledging the space within me that no longer carries a desire to experience the intensity the situation evoked on an emotional, spiritual, mental or physical level. Once I have identified this space that is ready to be honoured, I say a prayer such as:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please surround myself and my loved ones in globes of divine light for protection, courage and strength. Please help me to honestly see the ways in which I have been feeding this (pattern/scenario/relationship) and clearly identify what needs to shift within my being to effect positive change in honouring my highest Truth and Soul Path. Thank you for assisting my clarity and infusing this situation with the healing I am ready to integrate and accept to move beyond this pattern, and to invite divine health into my life on all levels. Thank you, Amen, Aho, and Om.”

I then visualize sending the learning lesson deep levels of Love. As a clairvoyant person, this Love is something I perceive as like a river of light. I thank each person who contributed to the pattern, even those that caused pain, for without that discomfort, perhaps, I would not have recognized my desire to grow. And with the love that is being sent, I then release the feeling/image/pattern/scenario, in my mind, seeing the pathways of light that connected me, dissolving and flowing away from my energy body like a leaf moving down a river. As the lesson moves out of my etheric field, I often feel a ‘lightening’ as if it is more possible to draw a deep and full breath, as new space has been opened up around my being.

We are all so connected to the etheric level of creation and this physical human experience in which we can awaken repeatedly in one lifetime, to infinite knowledge. We need not be caught in despair or anger, we may choose new pathways each and every day. We may be highly conscious, totally sensitive evolving souls who learn with every breath that we are blessed with, in our current bodies. All people have compassion and gifts to offer when making choices with focused intent for a more healthful existence and cohabitation of this wondrous planet.  As sensitive awakening beings, the souls incarnated on this planet have a millennia of knowledge, wisdom and perception that sees through the veils of current reality, to the possibilities, the incredible vision of what individuals and groups working in collective manifestation, are capable of contributing.

Thank you for shining.
with light and respect,

Etheric Alignment to Remove Fear or Insomnia

On the etheric level, my ‘vision’ of the world, is one in which two separate earths are coexisting, and overlying across one another. On one image, is an energy globe that stretches and twists with different levels of energy of the lower frequencies, rolling against one another like muddy debris being tossed through the air. The second image is of a globe of light, soft colors of gold, pinks and blues, all swirling gently in a spiral together. The two images exist simultaneously, yet with each determination a person makes to speak, act, and live from a place of Divine Love, the soft colors spread out, enfold a piece of the muddy energy, and work to assimilate the energy of the debris and raise its frequency to something shining like a crystal.

For people who have been experiencing a ‘shift’ in personal consciousness, or an ‘awakening’ of their ‘sixth sense’, this is a tumultuous feeling time, where sleep can feel elusive or challenging, and be akin to insomnia. The ‘pull’ of the opposing energies can leave one feeling as though the adrenal glands are constantly firing adrenalin, as if a one is constantly ready to run up a mountain rather than relax into sleep. Feverish sleeps, as well as semi- conscious, not quite sleeping, but ‘kind-of-sleeping’ can also occur.

Sleep brings us many gifts, and for the highly sensitive, these gifts can be very clear recollections of all that was experienced when sleeping. The vivid dream states that most highly sensitive individuals enter when balanced, are sometimes a combination between ‘dreaming’ and ‘soul travel’. Astral projection between different dimensional realities can manifest in more than one way. A retention of ones current incarnations consciousness will accompany many who are astrally traveling across the earth, and through to different levels of the energy reality. Some people will visit the dimensions of ‘fairy,’ the realm that exist some closely with our own. Others will visit places such as ‘shambala’, and receive teachings from ascended masters. Others still will have vivid dreams that bring them in contact with ancestors, guardians from their spirits family, with advice, comfort, healing messages and guidance. Still, other vivid dreams can occur, in which the spirit is immersed in a learning opportunity that combines frequencies the earth is currently moving towards, and those that are being shed at this time.

To acknowledge the challenges that may be blocking some peoples current sleep patterns, and find a way to re-infuse the body with much needed rest, as well as to be navigating the energy realities, I offer these tools:

*Fresh air is incredibly important at this time. The air carries on it the energy resonance of all that has been interacting with the wind. The trees, the plants, the animals, the water, the sunlight, all come with the cleansing wind. When possible sleep with fresh air. If not possible, claim at least five minutes a day, outside, breathing deeply with intention. Visualize the energy of the element one is most drawn to at this time. Is it a waterfall with light radiating through it to cast a rainbow? Is it the snowy top of a mountain peak, or the lush green jungle where flowers bloom in abundance? What is the element of nature that could bring gifts of renewal? Visualize with each inhalation, this element is entering the body with the breath, and the life force of the place, like tiny sparkles of gold or silver are spreading out through the cells an self.

*Epsom salts or sea salts offer the gift of removal of lower energies and are readily available in bulk purchase. Before sleeping, mix a generous handful in a bowl and place either the hands or the feet into the water. Visualize any challenging encounters, lower energies or hurtful feelings experienced during the day, being pulled out of the feet or hands, into the water. The body on the physical level releases toxins into the salt bath, while on the etheric and emotional level, the salts and water have an elevated ‘cleansing’ frequency.

*Consider a nightly affirmation/prayer such as this one:

“Dear God/dess of creation, ascended masters working alongside me at this time, and archangels who wish to bring forth blessings, please guide me to release on all levels, any negativity, lower vibrations or fear that is effecting my ability to receive restful sleep. Please send me clear messages throughout the day, for what I can do that aligns my body, mind, heart and spirit, with my best Divine health. I ask that Archangels Micheal and Ariel, and Shiva assist me in connecting to the personal courage and truth I am seeking at this time, for my personal evolution of Love, Peace, and Compassion. Please send light to my loved ones, as they navigate their own personal changes, and help me encourage them in whatever way would be most helpful at this time, for rejuvenation, strength and kindness. Thank you, Amen, Om, an Aho.”

The tools provided here are simple. Just as the act of falling asleep, receiving cellular regeneration and a renewal of life force, should be simple. Yet in this time, of cosmic shifting, we are often distracted by daily tasks and patterns that take our awareness away from the simplicity of life. Yet, all that we experience, has the potential to flow through, around and with us in a positive manner. Like a kaleidoscope of soft colors and light, all swirling in the same direction, we are able to synthesize and align our beings for greater restful, empowered consciousness.  From this place of alignment, when we do enter the ‘dream state’, the experiences we have, the energy we shed, can add to our sense of personal empowerment.

We all deserve to be in alignment with our own Divine health. Wishing everyone the peace of balanced sleep.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia
