Simple Pleasures, Celebrating this Life

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

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

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

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

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

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

Being Present, Harnessing the Light

As the spiritual energy that we are open to receiving, is transmuted into our conscious minds and bodies, we must each seek to ‘ground’ our being into the physical world, like an anchor holding a ship215_39316475312_913_n at full sail. Our physical being is the vessel for the spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects of self. Without it, we return to radiant light. As many people embark on spiritual awakenings, it is particularly important to engage in a personal practice of ‘grounding’ that allows for the harnessing of etheric energy and expanded consciousness in a healthy physical manner of being.

Our bodies must receive the care and nurturing, the expression and balance they need to maintain alignment for divine health. Some of the ways that etheric awakening can effect the physical body, are to accelerate sensitivities in patterns of food, exercise, and breathe. We may notice reactions to food, beverages, and others substances that require us to change familiar patterns, to effect greater personal wellness. We notice the way our body craves movement and the relationship to our breathe with feelings of calm, peace or personal power. The power of our bodies to transform,regenerate and heal, being filled with vital energy, is directly effected by the spiritual, mental and emotional beliefs we carry about ourselves and the world at large.

For those that astrally protect, dream walk, or are highly sensitive through feeling (clarsentience), sight (clairvoyance), hearing(clairaudience) or divine inspiration(claircognizience), the body requires investments of time and care that align the full self in a healthy way with the physical manifestation of the the world. Each person, instinctively is drawn to the physical manifestation for personal ground that is most suited to their particular resonance. Some people need water, to truly connect and ‘feel; the cells of their body being anchored to the earth. others need high alpine winds, or the slopes of mountains, while others still have a park bench, a beloved garden, or the field of grass they feel drawn to laying down upon. We, as individuals, walk the planet, each footstep cradled by a greater living source, the life force of the earth. Through our connection both to the earth itself, and the body that houses us, we become more acutely aware of the ways in which our own gifts can effect positive change, growth, sustenance and joy personally and publicly. For example, if I have dedicated a week to ‘receiving’ messages from the divine source, in service to others, I must also take several hours in the following days, to reconnect with the physical reality of my own life. If I give a reading, or a prayer for another, my personal being, seeks to be grounded in a very physical way through time in nature, preferably with my shoes off.

What are the ways in which we can each identify areas in our life that are seeking balance through personal ‘grounding’? A simple prayer/meditation/practice that I have found useful is as such.

Interlacing my fingers, I place my hands palms facing down over my navel. Breathing deeply, I allow my mind to relax, and my spiritual awareness to unfurl, and I pray something like this:

“Dear God/dess, please guide my body and being to the healthiest grounding practices and places that I am resonating with at this time. Please send the assistance of Archangel Micheal to cut any chords that are connecting me to energy draining patterns, and please send the assistance and strength of the ascended master Shiva to revitalize my cells so that I am aware of the ways my physical empowerment will benefit the whole of my life purpose. Thank you, Amen and OM.”

After I have uttered the prayer, I allow myself to receive any messages such as through images or feelings that encourage an expression of anchoring on the physical level. perhaps I feel the gentle breeze such as would move through the forest when on a trail, or the sound of water rushing, like when visiting a waterfall. Whatever the message is, as encompassing as a full day out of doors, a yoga practice or for a few minutes of dancing around the room, I commit to honoring the impetus, and being more fully present in my physical being. Through this presence, I am more rooted, balanced, and grounded in harnessing the cosmic vibrations of compassion, peace, and strength which I seek to transmute to the world at large. When we allow the physical to express itself, energy is transmuted and released, patterns can be changed, and empowerment harnessed.

May we each feel strong, in body, mind, heart and spirit,

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia
