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,

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.

Planting Seeds for Compassion, Teaching Children Yoga

When my daughter began kindergarten in 2012, like many parents, I hoped her school experience would encourage her curiosity to learn, provide opportunities for kindhearted friends, and gift me with five blessed hours of alone time. In the first few months of school she would confide in me over lunch, the joys, the sorrows and the frustrations of navigating her new social and education reality. I delighted in hearing that her new best friend was kind and helpful, and that her teacher devoted time and energy to each child’s particular learning needs. One day she asked me what a particular swear word meant. When I asked where she had encountered it, she explained a classmate had taken to calling her that and stepping on her hands or kicking her when saying it.

I went to the teacher immediately to ask what could be done to stop the violent words and behaviour. The teacher explained that the particular child was receiving a lot of support from the school and came from adverse circumstances. After hearing the child’s story, I altered my approach from asking for intervention, to offering my presence in the classroom as another avenue for providing an expanded positive vocabulary, and developing tools for self awareness, through gentle yoga classes.
My theory, was that a greater focus on positive self talk might encourage a wider and kinder vocabulary in students, as well as fostering a more gentle interaction in group dynamic, while balancing all of the major glands in the body though the postures, and might effect a more gentle physical shared experience.

“Yoga makes me feel calm” (kindergarten, grade 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) *from a pool of just under 400 students

“Yoga makes me feel like I love everyone” (grade 1 student)

I taught that particular kindergarten class a series of four classes, stipulating that so long as children respected the personal space of one another, and stayed on their own matts, they could follow along in a way that felt right for their own bodies and self. Children delighted in being shown through their ‘island’ that their personal space was entirely their own for exploring their bodies and feelings. I was quietly amazed as the majority of the class followed every body shape and breathing technique. Children would learn from one class to the next how to navigate and distinguish between opposite sides of their bodies, balance in stillness on one foot, building strength and confidence in powerful shapes, and relax with their fertile imaginations unleashed at the end of the class. Their brains were flushed with freshly oxygenated blood through their first few movements, and the room would still to near silence. The child who had been bullying mine, carefully stayed on their own ‘island’ (matt) hugging their knees and rocking back and forth for the first year.

Soon after I was welcomed into that classroom, other teachers in the school asked if I would teach in their classrooms. I felt delighted to be sharing simple tools with children for self regulation, awareness and wellness. We practised breathing techniques that balance the pituitary and pineal glands, and shapes that revitalize our immune systems. Children learned how twisting can balance their insulin levels, or regulate the adrenal glands, helping us each to feel a deeper sense of safety and ease. That first year I taught in five different classrooms, with a span of kindergarten to grade 7, mostly in a volunteer capacity, happily sharing a positive dialogue and watching the children’s receptivity to perceiving themselves, one another and their learning environment in a new way. When working alongside that first group of Grade 7’s, the majority wrote of their experience, that yoga had significantly decreased their sense of anxiety and stress while in school. I quietly marvelled at the ways in which that hormone rich age group respectfully approached themselves and one another when asked to be squished so close together around their desks, upside down, twisted and exposed in unfamiliar experience.

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is how calm I can be.” (grade 5-7)

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is to be calm, to listen to my body.” (grade 3)

“My favourite shape in yoga is mountain because it helps me be strong and not afraid.”
(grade 2)
“My favourite shape in yoga is tree and mountain, it was peaceful to me.” (grade 3)

In those 20 – 40 minute long classes, I often felt as though I was watching small and large miracles. During the second year of practice the child who had bullied mine in kindergarten wrote of their yoga experience “Yoga makes me feel calm, and to calm down when I am upset before it.” (grade 1) During the second year the same child began to participate in over half the shapes (asanas). In the third year, the child is an exemplary leader, participating in every shape, often at the front of the class.

In their own words, elementary school students say that:

“Yoga makes me feel happy.” (kindergarten)

“Yoga makes me feel good.” (grade 2)

“Yoga makes me feel relaxed” (grade 3)

“Yoga makes me feel more healthy” (grade 2)

“Yoga makes me feel strong and brave” (grade 2)

After three years in an elementary school, in which children grades kindergarten to grade 3 received up to 16 instructional yoga classes each for a school year, I have had the good fortune to expand and teach in other learning environments.

“Yoga makes me feel relaxed free and confident” (grade 3)

Another elementary school, kindergarten to Grade 7 had an introductory 4 week session. The older children, in their first class looked around at one another with uncertainty, giggles, insecurity and embarrassment. I explained that our yoga classes were a time for them each to remember ways in which they were capable and powerful in learning to understand what feels good for their bodies, and to respect one another as each individual learned, breathed, bent and twisted in ways that were safe and comfortable. I also explained that yoga was time for developing an internal gaze, to explore our mental, emotional, physical and intuitive selves. During those four classes, the children’s eyes softened, no longer seeking nonverbal approval from one another, but closing their eyes to tune in more fully to their own experience. The embarrassment level shifted, and each child participated, focused on their own body and breath for a 40 minute class in relative silence.

“Yoga makes me feel good about myself” (grade 5-7)

“My favourite shape in yoga is stretching my legs because it makes me feel capable to do more things in life that make me feel good.” (grade 5-7)

What a remarkable shift I witnessed during an age in which hormones and peer acceptance can wreak such havoc.

“Yoga makes me feel amazing, I felt free.” (grade 5-7)

“The best thing I learned about myself during yoga is I’m actually better at things than I thought.” (grade5-7)

I have recently had the good fortune to be welcomed into two preschools where I spend a weekly session with 3yrs and 4yrs old. They are so focused, one could hear a pin drop. Their eyes are huge and round as they listen to instructions and seek to make new shapes with their bodies while using their imaginations for things such as ‘gathering handfuls of sunshine’ (during pranayama/breath) or ‘uncurling like leaves and flowers opening in spring’ (during asana/body shapes). I am also blessed with a few classes a year where kindergarten children and seniors in an assisted living home, practice chair yoga together. The elders watch the children, so focused and free in their imagining, and I see the elders light up in the shared imagining, oxygen saturation and gentle movement. Circulation benefits physical and mental health in all ways. When we have simple body movement, combined with conscious breathing, we are often offered gifts in elevated mood, and hopefulness for ourselves and this world.

When I spend time watching the children, noticing the way they respond to deepening their breath, and holding a shape in stillness, I continue to feel that I am witnessing small miracles.

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that I am unique.” (grade 2)

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that I am brave.” (grade 2)

A parent approached me in my second year and related a story of witnessing her daughter fall and hurt herself. The child sat up, shifted her posture and began to follow the deep belly breath she had recently learned in kindergarten. She was mitigating her experience of pain instinctively, seeking calm. The parent voiced amazement in watching the self analysis and transformation in her 6yr old.

“Yoga makes me feel relaxed and calm.” (kindergarten)

“Yoga makes me feel rainbows happy” (kindergarten).
I have had several parents relate instances where their children are incorporating movement and breath from school, into their daily lives. Some want to teach the rest of their family, everything they have learned that day. Others want to share in deep belly breathing at bedtime. When I drop off my child at school it is often to a chorus of children asking me “When do we have yoga next? Is it today?” Many of them are children such as the one who inspired my volunteering the first year, kids that struggle with focus or kindness, but are learning to the best of their current abilities, to assimilate self awareness, compassion and calm. These same children will mirror learning challenges in the classroom, such as a challenge to focus, through their body shapes in yoga. Through balancing on one leg for example, often children who have difficulty focusing in class, will be the first to fall over. Yet through the course of a year, those children will grow from holding a balancing posture, with focus from a single breath to 4-6 breaths in a row, an incredible shift in their mental and physical regulation.

Recently a friend asked me about teaching children’s’ yoga, and if I planned to continue in the upcoming years. I replied I was still passionate about teaching, and I believed learning to breathe and move for calm, strength, focus and power should be a basic human right. He cheered. I further explained that I often wondered “How powerful would we each feel as adults, if during times of heightened anxiety, stress, pain, frustration or anger, we naturally took a few deep breaths, finding a physical posture that helped us feel calm, or strong, or confident or focused, and then made our next choice, action or reply?” My daughter was riding her bike down a steep trail for the first time, and as she paused at the top of an unknown hill. I asked her if I could assist her.
“No Mama, I’m asking myself if I can do this.’ she replied, taking four deep belly breaths as we do at the beginning of each yoga class. At the end of the fourth breath I saw her smile. “My body says I can do this!” and she pushed off with confidence.

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that I’m strong.” (grade 3)

“The best thing that I learned about myself in Yoga is that I am Powerful.” (grade 5-7)

“The best thing that I learned about myself in yoga is that yoga can calm me down” (grade 1)

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that I could be peaceful.” (grade 2)

How could our professional and personal lives shift if we had learned at a young enough age, that it felt wholly natural, to balance our hormonal secretions, invigorate our organs and balance our circulatory, skeletal structure and the master glands of our miraculous bodies to the point that doing so was as familiar as reciting the ABC’s? Many of the children have assimilated their body movements and breathing to such a degree that I hear them whispering the instructions even before I voice them. They particularly focus on new shapes or breathing that teach them about their physical bodies such as compressing and detoxifying their lungs, or learning a sensory controlling posture, which inevitably brings absolute stillness and quiet into the classroom. One grade three student who often struggled with stillness and verbal quiet, asked to practice a particular sensory controlling pose every class, after learning it the first time. The student shifted to eagerly anticipating his yoga classes having experienced a way to self regulate with a powerful new tool.

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is I to find peace, and I never noticed so many things about myself before.” (grade 3)

“My favourite shape in yoga is downward dog because it stretches the back of my legs. Thank you so much for teaching this.” (grade 5-7)
“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is how calm I can be.” (grade 5-7).

During a children’s yoga class I use vocabulary that focuses on the physical benefits, such as having their heads below their hearts and saturating their brains with fresh oxygenated blood which helps us feel calm, and better at problem solving. All language used respects the cultural differences, faiths and spiritual beliefs of our multicultural country. Some classes ask that I refrain from using the word ‘yoga’ I then explain we will be ‘stretching’ to help us all feel more ‘balanced’. I am happy to shift dialogue to be inclusive, just as I appreciate other educators doing so for my own child in alternate learning environments. Our classes have a predictable flow, with new shapes inserted that build on the foundations built in the previous classes. Children amaze me with balancing in stillness, in a core muscle building shape that also stimulates emotional confidence and using ones assertive voice. This shape is introduced in every class, the ‘boat’ posture, one I watch shift from two breaths in stillness to 6-8 breathes over the course of the year.

“The best thing I learned about myself in Yoga is that I am powerful and brave.”(grade 3)

There is also a focus on nature, and the ways in which our human self is connected to, and a mirror for the natural environment. At the end of each school year we brings our matts outside, where children are looking at mountains and trees as they make the same yoga shape with their bodies.

“Yoga makes me feel like I am in a field of flowers.” (grade 2)

In this way we foster a connection to our environment and a sense of belonging as well as fostering the confidence to be focused on the self even when the outside world provides distractions as everyday life passes the schools field in cars, on bikes, maintenance crews and dog walkers. Children train their internal gaze to allow that the outward environment can be erratic and unpredictable, yet through their breath and movement, they can complete tasks, invest in their personal health, and support one another’s individual experience by respecting time and space while others also focus and move with mindfulness.

“My favourite shape in yoga is tree because I feel tall and powerful.” (grade 5-7)

“My favourite shape in yoga is mountain because it makes me feel balanced.” (grade 3-4)

I’m not sure how many years I will have the joy of sharing yoga with children in a school setting. Like many things, it depends on the support of the teaching staff, the principal and the availability of funding. Yet for every year and every child I am able to teach, I feel a little more hopeful for our planet and species as a whole.

When I ask the children to imagine during their laying down restful time (savasana) and to think about the ways they have the power to build, connect, share, and create across this wondrous planet, as they lay quietly on their matts, relaxing at the end of the series, I cannot help but envision a future in which they take those words to heart, celebrating one another’s strengths and carrying just a little more acceptance into adulthood for the ways we all move, breathe and bend differently on all levels. During each class we say out load one positive self affirming statement, inspired by SO HUM (I am that, that is I). With their hands over their bellies they all roar statements such as “I AM BRAVE”, for it is brave to bend and shift, to giggle or fart with all your classmates baring witness. The children are given opportunity to say things such as
“I AM WISE
or KIND
or GENTLE
or POWERFUL
or CREATIVE
or STRONG.”
All of the attributes we carry as humans and choose whether or not to foster. Some of the children instruct one another on what the words mean, or share what they felt the word means when applied to themselves. When I asked children what the most powerful words were that had ever been spoken to them, I got answers such as ‘My dad told me I’m a kind boy, and I try hard at everything I do.’ or ‘My grandam told me she loved me.’ I then encouraged students to consider the power their words have on one another, before each student looked around the room and said “Thank you for being powerful friends.” It was an incredibly heart filling experience to see them looking at one another with the new understanding that they had the ability and the power to effect the way someone thought about themselves. Encouraging positive self esteem as the children grow older, will be such a huge part of the ways peers and individuals internalize feelings of being supported or criticized.
“Your weekly affirmations were beneficial to the children and helped them vocalize- and maybe even internalize-these important messages. This was my favourite part!”(kindergarten teacher).

After each class, the children go back to their regular learning schedules. They move back desks, and pick up bits of paper, they learn French and music and math, and all the many other systems our current schools incorporate. Yet, once a week or four times a year, during the first half of their day for 20 mins or half an hour, the rooms are mostly silent, the ocean of the floor punctuated by rainbow hued yoga matts, their islands that are just for them while breathing together, imagining, and taking note of all the ways we are each growing and changing every day. During this time, students are encouraged to be utterly themselves. To voice the colour of bird or magical creature their body shape represents, to feel welcome in expressing if they are fans of rainbow sparkles, kindness or courage. To build their warrior strength as both young women and men, and to see that every one of them is a superhero in their very own way. There are no tests, or expectations on my part as a yoga instructor. I ask them to give themselves the gift of doing the best that they are able on any given day, and if they ‘feel’ that they have invested in themselves, then I celebrate each of them. It is a small thing, this 20-40mins every two weeks, in the course of a life, but I witness small seeds of compassion and strength being planted during that time, that could blossom in unexpected and incredible ways as the children age. Perhaps a stronger connection to respecting their own bodies will influence the ways in which they are respectful of one another as adults in relationships both professionally and personally. Perhaps having felt what a balanced physiological system feels like, there may be slightly less of an inclination towards toxic substances that change the way their bodies and minds feel. I can only hope to bare witness over the years, as I have had the extreme good fortune to do this far, and have some of them become teachers in their own right in whatever field of study they choose to invest in as adults.

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that it helps me to learn and try my best.” (grade 1)

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that is makes me wake up so that I can learn.” (grade 1)

“The best thing I learned about myself in yoga is that I could get stronger.” (grade 1)

“The best thing that I learned in yoga is that it made me have a good day.” (grade 2)
For all of those yoga teachers out there who feel drawn to working alongside and empowering children, may you connect in a positive way in local studios, schools or private lessons with the students who can benefit most from the wisdom and wellness you carry.

With sincere thanks to each of the teachers and children who has thus far welcomed me into their classes, you all teach me every day!

Akashic Records and Intuitive Leaps

copyright remains with the artist Jane Shepherd, image used with permission.

Life presents us each with learning opportunities. Some of them are intensely challenging. We are asked to grow in ways that feel physically, emotionally and mentally uncomfortable. Yet our Spirit self, is expansive and bold, aware that growth occurs unendingly, and as we each allow it, we have greater space for experiencing and sharing the gifts we brought when we incarnated onto the planet.

 

When we seek to align our Soul Purpose on a subconscious and conscious level, we must first cut through several layers of etheric debris that we carry about associated with ‘fear’. These can be patterns that we have just developed,  or had passed down through generations on physical choices, actions, and self fulfilling prophesy. They can be patterns we have ingested from a broader influence, a result of cultural influences in our current society. Or they can be karmic imprints from our previous lives, lessons we have brought forward into our current life walk, with a further opportunity to make alternate choices and grow in the way that we need at this time.

There is an aspect of conscious mental being, that invites messages from the etheric realm, through inspiration, instant understanding, and intuitive leaps. In extrasensory awareness, this is called ‘claircognition’, and like all extra sensory sensitivities, we are each able to receive higher guidance in this way. Many flashes of intuitive knowledge are discarded as a person lives a patterned life of discounting ‘far fetched’ ideas, inspiration or possibilities. For those that feel aware of previous lifetimes, we are each offered the strengths and gifts on a spiritual level, developed in that previous life, as well as an opportunity to integrate how choices previously unfolded personally and collectively when those lifetimes were experienced. During the remembering process, a person may feel drawn to another landscape on the planet, a certain climate zone that ‘feels’ like home. An intuitive flashes may recommend a short or long journey alone. The ego based fear pattern asserts it would be selfish. Yet if we honored our impetus to grow and explore, what gifts of self worth, knowledge and enlightenment would we then share with all those we returned too? This can be an indication that an aspect of the spiritual being is experiencing an unfolding level of consciousness, where by visiting such a place, either physically visiting, or devoting time and energy to meditation or contemplation of that place, affords a deeper understanding of self. The idea of purchasing a plane ticket and flying around the globe can be one the ego voice talks ourselves out of. Yet holding that image in our mind, visiting the spot in psychic memory or through a series of photos in books or online, still is honoring this flash of intuitive understanding, non linear as it appears. When I have listened to my guidance, to travel or explore a ‘far reaching memory’ an ‘akashic record’ I have always received a greater understanding and deepening of my own strength.

img_0582

Our intuitive flash may ask for physical healing modalities, the pattern of fear may assert there is not money or time for such a devotion, yet through making physical investment in well being, suddenly we are more energized, and have even more hours of the day in which we feel motivated to create, achieve and be of service for others. The current energy on the planet has a swirling mix of karmic debris, anxious collective fears, and some exhaustion mixed in. Yet there are waves of light, Divine Love, and creation being beamed towards each of us and the planet at large, simultaneously. In honoring an intuitive flash, of what we truly ‘need’ to feel aligned with our Soul Purpose and at peace within ourselves, we are tuning in, cutting through chords, of lower vibrations based on fears. Through this, we create and energy pathway, a remembrance of Higher Self, that affords gifts of all kinds to flow through us and our lives. The energy pathways, once opened, send streams of light into our etheric beings, like pure water filling a vessel. The first step to feeling refilled, refueled and reintegrating vital life force, is to acknowledge the ways we are ready and wanting to shift outmoded patterns. Do we feel that we constantly hear negative concepts in the world? We can then empower ourselves to shift the pattern by seeking to notice, acknowledge and celebrate small and large acts of kindness, bravery and love around us. Do we seek to feel more hopeful? When was the last time we allowed ourselves to visualize and imagine a world or personal vocation, that fills us with hope? Are their places on the planet we feel drawn to engage with? We can each find a way of doing so. Perhaps we will pray each day for the place and its people, perhaps we will join a volunteer organization that offers service of positive impact in such a place, or we will make a dedication to address one of the sorrows in our own lives, so that we may better mentor others in their own healing journey through sharing our unique stories and perspectives.

A prayer I often use, when seeking to navigate lower vibrations, life challenges, and a sense of balance is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please send your light warriors to surround myself and those who are open to receiving at this time, encouragement, for connecting to our Higher Selves, so that as we make choices, it is with clear reception of wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the ways in which each human life is connected throughout time and space. Please send me the pateint assistance of Jesus, to walk beside me and offer gentle reminders that when I struggle, I am only growing and deepening my inner strength, and capacity to view myself and this world, with Compassion. Please send the enveloping light of Quan Yin, so that I may be reminded of the timelessness of being, and treat my fellow humans, animals and this natural beautiful earth, with Compassion. Thank you for reminding me to clearly receive any intuitive messages towards change, action and creative problem solving that the etheric support team working with me at this time, is beaming for my own and humanities collective well being. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

This is a cosmic unfolding in which we are each offered opportunities to choose which wave of energy we are willing to connect with and receive from. We can see the sorrow and challenges, yet dedicate through a life of service and personal empowerment, energy to encouraging positive change, manifestation and healing on personal and global levels.

with light and compassion for us all,

The Empowering Pathway of Self Honesty

 

img_2590

Each of us are given very distinct messages from our emotional, mental, spiritual and physical bodies in regards to when we feel that we or others are in alignment with personal and Soulful Truths.  When we speak from a place of personal honesty about what our needs or limitations, dreams or hopes are, we send out a powerful beam of light at the seventh chakra that directly connects with the higher self of the person we are communicating with. In many ways, the ‘Angel Readings’ I facilitate are a building of a light bridge to encourage a direct stream of communication between a person’s Higher Self, Soul, and helpers with the conscious mind, to reveal, support and encourage personal levels of Truth and Honesty.  It is an incredible honour to assist in the building of this bridge, and each time I am of assistance, I receive the blessing of my own path being honoured with honesty.

One of the gifts that I have experienced as I have sought to develop, and continue on my path, is that there can be very real physical repercussion to ignoring or blocking ones personal Truth.  We must each make conscious choices through out the course of our lives to live in accordance with the inner wisdom we are carrying.  I recognize the challenges of choosing pathways that seem alternate to the ‘normal’ society, family circle, or cultural manner we are each surrounded by.  I too had to overcome fears surrounding not belonging, yet in allowing my inner Truths to be more apparent in the external world, I have found new levels of Love, acceptance, Joy and resilience than were apparent in any of the years during which I was trying to ‘blend’ more.

When I was a child, I learned very quickly that my physical body reacted like a barometer to dishonesty in a strong fashion.  The angelic light working alongside me assured me that reactions such as nausea were actually a powerful tool for identifying ways in which I was or was not ‘walking/talking/acting’ in accordance with my Divine Path.  This feeling would be present when others or myself, were telling untruths, not on the level of  simply fibbing between my siblings over who ate the last cookies, but rather as a powerful reaction to when I made choices or witnessed others making choices that were deeply harmful to their Soul Path. Because I do not like feeling physically unwell, I learned to mitigate my own manner of expression with a dedication to seeking to align myself more fully with my own personal truth and voice, act, and speak this manner of truth to the best of my capabilities and courage as each new level of personal growth and transformation afforded.  In this series of choices I began to experience a deeper level, a more empowered level of physical wellness, spiritual strength, mental clarity and emotional well being.  I also developed tools of praying and reaching out energetically to others who broadcasted a willingness to receive assistance in the from of a prayer, a hug, a kind word.

For each person who is currently seeking to realign themselves with the bright, dynamic, Love based Truths of their being, path, Free Will and Soul Purpose at this time I offer an affirmation/prayer that has been of assistance to myself and others during individual and universal Angel readings:

“Dear God/dess, Creator, Great Spirit and Divine Light Source, please send me the strongest rays of angelic, ascended masters, fairy, ancestors and earth spirit helpers, to clear away all karmic, emotional, mental, spiritual and physical debris at my Seventh Chakra.  I ask for their assistance, and am open to receiving the clearing on all levels that allows me to perceive, receive and integrate the Divine Wisdom seeking to flow through me at this time.  Please saturate my being with clarity and light for the highest good of my self as an individual, and this planet as a whole, so that I may courageously move forward with gentleness, kindness and compassion, on my divine Soul Path, sharing my gifts as are needed at this time.  Thank you, Amen, Om, and Aho.”

May we each continue to integrate, share and Love the ways in which we are individuals, and magnificent in our own unique ways ❤

with light,

Kamia

Will Power and the Internal Flame

Words have power. The power that we give them when we use them with consciousness, the power that they carry when they are spoken or written or thought and sent as prayers. There are moments when we hear, read, or write particular words during out lifetime, and in the moment, we have a visceral reaction, as if there is a piece of our spirit that is returning ‘home’ to a greater understanding of our place in the grand cosmos and our experience of ‘life’.

With focus and intention, we can harness the resonance of a word, of our own divine will, and activate the powerful tool of being present, aware and intentional in the ways in which we direct our life force and are effected on a energy level by the use of words. What are the words of self Love, Divine connection, Soul Purpose commitment and Peace we each have inside of us, waiting to be birthed?

There is a particular power shift when we discover the true measure of our own Free Will. The ability to discern and activate light expansion and direct the course of our lives through the choices we make and the parameters we consciously create. One of the most powerful sayings that I use, and share with others is the simple practice of saying aloud

“There is only space for Light in this space.”

I have used this saying during times where I felt in danger, I have used it to clear the energy in a home, and I have often used it as I approached a scenario or conversation in which there is fear based energy present. Through the power of intention and direct invocation of the Law of Free Will, there is an etheric surge of energy that creates a lattice of energy, like a net, web or wall, that diffuses all lower vibrations and allows for only the highest vibrations of love, compassion, truth and integrity to be present. This invocation of focused intention is so powerful, that it can literally transform the physical reality, surrounding one. The mental level of awareness also shifts with this intention, allowing for a heightened ability to creatively problem solve, see solutions and discern opportunities for safely navigating people, places and experiences. When I use the words, I often visualize the light of Archangel Micheal like a fiery white, and blue flame, surrounding my body and self, burning through fearful thoughts and self doubt. The focus of this visualization the physical words being spoken, all anchor my will and intention in a manner that eliminates self doubt and ego based distractions. We all experience fear on different levels. The brighter the receptive quality a person carries for broadcasting light into this present reality, the more likely they will be to create several fearful circumstances on one of the levels, physical, mental, emotional or spiritual that offers opportunities to connect with and strengthen their will. The challenges that we each face and encounter are forging us into stronger, more competent beings when we approach or navigate them with Faith that we can ultimately emerge with greater tools, knowledge and personal wisdom.

During times in life when I have waged spiritual, emotional or mental battles for my own growth, it is in the power of the simplest words, spoken, thought and affirmed that I have broken through the fear based patterns. The internal battles we wage can be all consuming. As if we have walked or thrown ourselves into the metaphorical pit of fire. Yet, in this fire, in the light that can be channeled as the fiery sword energy of Archangel Micheal who cuts away disempowerment and fear, or the power of the goddess energy Durga, who cuts through illusions and fear, we are able to emerge as the distilled, amplified version of Self we each can choose to be. When we make a conscious choice to honor our own unique gifts, in the aspects of diving into our own psyche and perceptions, and navigating a spiritual connection that can act as a rope of light, an anchor and radiant energy source to our present incarnation, we will be tested in accordance with the power of our will. No sooner have we set an intention to make a change, or allow growth, then previous lessons or larger lessons that reflect this choice will present themselves before us. For example we may choose to eliminate a toxic substance from our diet, only to then create three different social circumstances in which this substance is available and offered. Our will and our faith in our own worthiness to heal, grow and implement self and divine Love is tested. Did we make a commitment to self with the strength of focus that originates from a place of our ultimate core resonance? And if so, do we allow this determination to expand and pulse out into the physical world, a fuel source of Divine Will that changes our physical reality and allows us to walk away from unhealthy patterns? Or did we make a choice with only a half-hearted determination of will? One that still has fear based self doubt attached to it? By discerning our own pathways of consciousness, and true motivation for patterns and choices we activate empowerment.

thumbnail_IMG_2669

One of the prayers that I have used to bring a deeper level of self awareness into directing my free will and determinations is:

“Dear God/dess Force of Creation, please amplify my light, and connection to my Higher Self so that I can easily discern the ways in which I am able to empower myself to be True to my Soul Purpose and Path. I ask that all lower vibrations of self-doubt, insecurities and mistrust, in my own Divine Power, be removed with the assistance of the warrior/ess energy of Archangel Micheal and Durga. I ask that I release fearful imprinting form this and previous lifetimes so that I may implement and live as a conduit of Divine Love, Peace and Joy. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

What light do we all carry from the beginning of our Soul’s journey through time, that we are seeking to expand at this time in the present? Through the direction of willpower, we are responsible for giving this energy the space, respect and activation. We are all powerful in our expression of the Divine Light that connects all living beings. We choose to dampen or strengthen this light every day.

May the light within you grow, expand and break free of constrictions that have been placed upon it through this or previous lifetimes.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Self Empowerment for Divine Love at First Sight

People have varied opinions on the phrase ‘love at first sight.’ The more committed I am to experiencing the world and people at large with the etheric perceptions of my clairvoyance and intuition, the more I readily embrace the phrase as true. Love at first sight for me, is a celebration of truly seeing all of the light that another person, the world around me, nature and animals and the etheric reality afford, whenever I am willing to celebrate and recognize light in all its forms. Light as the resonance of the Soul, as the thought forms, the prayers and highest vibrations of positive energy that stretch between all living beings, and the cosmic reality of the universe.

I am able to walk into a situation and Love because I have first made an investment of energy in balancing myself, and recognizing my own gifts. From a place of personal empowerment, there is a boundless well of energy that I have found accessible for encouraging others to celebrate their own unique gifts. I see people fighting their own personal battles, just as I have overcome challenges within my own life, and I Love them. I can express this love through a prayer, a kind word, or by sharing a story about tools I have found to overcome challenges. Loving the world at large does not manifest as enabling, or ‘fixing’ or changing other people. Loving for me, manifests as encouraging personal empowerment. Each person has a divine link to the greater God/dess source, and choices each day about expressing this link, utilizing it for strength, amplifying their own light through this connection, and finding new ways to express, connect and celebrate the light around them in people and places that resonate in alignment with their personal vibration. When I am empowered, I am able to Love, whether I am meeting someone for the first time, or encountering a person, or family member repeatedly. The combination of personal empowerment and Love is like a shield that deflects all lower vibrations, and fear based energy that circulate in the collective reality, or in situations I once found uncomfortable, hurtful, or challenging.

A simple prayer I have used to empower myself:

“I ask that God/dess work with my Higher Self to help me to release all patterns that are fear based. Please Archangels, and Ascended Masters working alongside me at this time, help me to recognize the ways in which I am empowered by my personal gifts and light, and encourage me to connect with the bravery, the kindness, the compassion and grace, that I have as a reflection of the divine source, within my own Soul. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

A simple prayer I have often said for others:

“Dear God/dess, source of all creation, please send the light beings that are most aligned with (the person’s name or an image in your mind of the person you have wish to pray for) to remind them of their own divine light. Please assist this person in recognizing opportunities for personal empowerment, healing, and compassion that are around them each day. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

As a new wave of energy moves across the planet, the shifting of one year to the next, what are the choices each of us can make that help us to be more empowered? To step forward along our own divine path to encourage others to also feel empowered in the personal expression of divine Truth? The world will always have more space for each of us to express Love personally, communally, and universally. What are the expressions of Love that we can each make this new year, both great and small? Is it through art, writing, public speaking, action, choices about Loving ways to react, movement, building, creating, group support or planting of seeds both physical or metaphorical? Do we express love by raising funds for others? Or donating time and energy to a cause close to our heart that empowers others? We all have gifts for a future that is co-creating peace and Love on a grander scale. When we decide to move forward and follow our dreams of our deepest being, we become empowered, and able to Love on an expansive level.

For each person who is transforming aspects of self, areas in their life, and relationships personally and universally, I send you Love, respect, and appreciation for your courage. You all inspire me.

with light,

Kamia

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

What About the 6th Sense?

When a person asks a small child, how big they are, many children will stretch their arms out as far as they can, and with straining effort that their little chubby arms cannot encapsulate, say “SOOOOOO big.” The child is telling the truth. Their spirit, although patiently navigating, first steps, tumbles and the giant challenge of adult sized stairs, is infinitely larger than their human body. Their bright innocent light, is still aware at this stage of childhood, that ‘they’ stretch outwards, upwards, and in each direction, miles from their physical body. Their perception of space, the being of human and also this infinite being, is existing in a cooperative manner that allows for intuition and awareness of people they interact with, the environment and elements, and of their myriad array of helpers on the etheric plane; fairies, angels, ascended masters, god/dess, earth spirits and guides.

In the beginning, when a bright and light resonating soul comes into the world in the tiny infant body they will inhabit for this lifespan, there is the first realization of a new perception of space. Sometimes this can bring out allot of tears. In my case, my parents claim I came out into the world, looked around, at them and my siblings, had some breast milk and promptly went to sleep. On days where I feel several lifetimes old, I think back to this moment and ruefully laugh, for even with several lifetimes of birthing and living and dying, one of the lessons I return to with the occasional outburst of frustration and fist shaking at the sky, is for inhabiting, in the physical body, a small space.

When does this perception of space become confining or ‘smaller’? I think each person may have a different time. A trauma, or a hurt, where they felt small all of a sudden, and the giant reach of their spirit felt knocked off of center. For myself, as I sat in my grade one desk, clutching rainbow colored pencils, my first negative interaction with space occurred when the teacher wrote on the board and said “There are 5 senses.” In my head, I said, “What about the 6th sense?” As an intuitive and empathetic child, looking around at my class mates, many bright eyes and big spirited, I waited to see who would be brave enough to ask the question. There was silence. I chewed on my pencil and waited until lunch to go home, and ask my mom why the teacher wasn’t talking about the 6th sense, by far my favorite sense, the one I relieved upon more than any other to navigate life. I do not remember her response, but it was something along the lines of “Well, maybe the teacher wasn’t told there is one?”

Last week I had a wonderful and spontaneous conversation with a woman about the spirit realm, and I thanked her for her ‘openness’. She replied, “Yes, it is true, isn’t it? People will speak to the level they are spoken to?” And I agreed, and then smiled. This blogpost is in honor of her words.

Over the last year, as I have shared these blogposts, the musings of my 6th sense, I have witnessed an incredible transformation in the way I have interacted with many people in my life, and many beautiful new people I am encountering (for the first time in this life, but ‘again’ from others.) I spend my favorite time and energy ‘speaking’ with this writing of ‘more’, and in celebrating how ‘big’ we all are. It is my apology and reconciliation for the six year olds from my younger self, who got told they were small. It is my apology and reconciliation to the world at large and the adults that are all around me, who have forgotten, and been told that they are small.

I ask my five year old daughter, how big are you, and she gets a twinkle in her eye and shouts back “HUGE!” and then she flexes her chubby arms at me. I hope to have her say the same thing for all the years of her life. I know that their will be times where she may not. I see friends and light workers, who have days where their shoulders curl, and they heads droop and they speak in small voices, and they do not feel the enormity of their spirits, and support of their team of angelic realm helpers. And that is okay, because I have days where I feel small for a few minutes too. However, those days have gotten fewer and farther between, and I want to share this feeling, this expansive, knowledge that we are ‘more’ and ‘big’ and ‘beautiful’ in our enormous energy rich selves.

Here is my prayer for myself, for my child, for each child coming into the world, and for the adults who were once children and told or shown that they did not have light wings,

“I ask that the angels come into this room to the space that any reading these words is inhabiting. I pray that the resonant energy of the Christ Consciousness, and the Archangels, as messengers, and light rays of the Creator/God/dess source of creation, be with us each in this moment, and in the way that we are each most receptive to messages, whether through thought, feeling, sound, or image. Help us to receive a greater awareness of our Higher Selves and aura’s. Please bring these messages all day long. Please remind us that we can reach out with these energy selves, to feel rain falling a mile away, to sense people as they come towards us, or move away from us. Please help this ‘greater awareness’ to be gentle, and to show us also the incredible tools we have for deflecting and shrugging away all lower energies. Help us to clean the space that we inhabit, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. And please help us all, to feel energized by this reminder of greater self, empowered to act in our daily lives, with this knowing. Thank you angels, ascended masters, fairies, spirit guides and earth helpers. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

With light, and respect,
may you be BIG today,
Kamia
