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,

Balance for Empathic and Highly Sensitive Beings

When we allow the physical to express itself, energy is transmuted and released, patterns can be changed, and empowerment harnessed.-2

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

IMG_6125

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

With light,

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

Excerpt From: Kamia Shepherd. “Soul Evolution.” iBooks.

Spiritual ‘Doorways’

To allow for the essence of incarnated being to exist, we must each pass through a doorway so to speak, an entrance into the physical, when we are born. Babies come with the potential to emit their own frequency, to gift the world their own unique music of soul and light essence and physical matter, for however long they live. Some may be a heartbeat, that resonated across a community or family, some may grow to be a wisdom keeper, an elder for their tribe or country, yet for however long ,the individual exists as an intersection of energy, their music of self, their unique resonance combines with our overall chorus, or rainbow of individual and collective vibrancy, and helps build the waves of energy that move across this planet and reach out far beyond the stars our human eyes can perceive.

When a baby is seeking to make the initial jump into physical being, their soul wraps itself around the parents, whispering the potential of the life that could come through, with the two individuals partnership. That soul then waits for the doorway that symbolizes the set of lessons they have sought to experience. Perhaps it is to be cradled in a womb, with love and joy, perhaps it is a long life that reaches our and opens doorways for other lives to enter. The Divine Source holds and nourishes every Soul that has been incarnated, or seeks to be incarnated in the future. I often see the little ‘lights’ the potential of babies that are seeking parents with the particular genetic, emotional, spiritual coding that offers them the lessons they are eager to explore during a physical incarnation. For everyone I ‘see’ or hear’ I say this prayer ‘May your soul find a home in the physical realm that adds beauty, truth and depth to the human experience. May the Divine Source help carry you into a life with the potential for Joy. Amen, OM and Aho.’ I say the prayer and see them choose parents, or recede back into the network of light that is energy around us all, ebbing and flowing, waiting and moving, wrapping about those who do have bodies and imploring us to each to see and feel , and be connected to the miracle that manifest life offers.

The energy of the manifest universe moves and combines in a similar fashion to the way a rainbow becomes visible with the right combination of water and sunlight. The potential for matter, for shifts in consciousness, all of the ‘ingredients’ that can combine to bring about a massive shift on the earth physically, or the uplifting energy waves that can accelerate the collective consciousness of people on the earth, at any given time. This cosmic energy exists and moves, sometimes directed by the thought patterns that people contribute, by the natural worlds evolution through time or space, and through the ‘agreement’ that souls make when they move from light body to physical being. In my humble perception at this time, I see us all like intersections of ‘light’ or energy. We emit our own unique frequency but are an alchemical combination of the building blocks of physical matter and energy and soul essence that allow us to exist consciously in both individual and mass connection as the human race. As individual energy nodes, we can refract light, like a rainbow from rain and sunlight, on different wavelengths based on the current life choices we are making, combined with the wisdom/karmic debris our Soul brings forth from previous lifetimes or light systems.

During our life walks, when we have entered the physical, we each are given choices through the Law of Free Will, about what spectrum of light, soul essence or divine alchemy, we wish to emit. Like the original doorway of energy, when we miraculous blended the spirit of self into the human body and became both greater soul, connected to a soul group, as well as human consciously experiencing life, the subsequent ‘doorways’ during our life path can ask for a s similar level of courage. We walk through these energy gateways several times during our lifetimes, and for those with heightened sensitivities, it may seem as though a life and death cycle is being replayed during each major transition. What will we each choose as ‘doorways’ swing open, the tidal pull of the energy of collective emotion, or individual and earth inspired Peace? A universal ‘doorway’ can be evident when a child transitions from youth to adulthood. This shifting of energy can be honoured by the traditional practices of many indigenous peoples in which test of physical strength and courage, mental, emotional and spiritual endurance mark the end of youth and the beginning of woman or man. Other personal doorways can when a persons spiritual power seeks expression int he physical world. We each must choose to honour and explore or strengthen our particular sensitivities or to keep them hidden or suppressed. I have ‘seen’ those doorways open many times for people, and the choices to commit to a path that honours the soul, or continues to be familiar is a kind of life/death/rebirth. Most people are given choices several times through out their lives to walk through ‘doorways’ into different levels of being or consciousness.
Some peoples choices surrounding moving forward with a new cycle of life lessons, karmic unfolding and spiritual exploration, can feel as if they are actually living several lifetimes during one lifetime. As if each new completion of energy, gave way to an entirely new combination of hues from the rainbow spectrum we each carry. We also individually and collectively pass doorways on the energy realm that connect us with different lifespans. With Clairvoyance I have ‘seen’ two different times during my current life walk in which on a Soul level I could have chosen to transition back into light, or continue in this current body with a new wave of energy saturating my life. The soul sees in many directions at once.

If we feel that we are approaching a doorway, between life and death, or a new level of being, between bringing forth a child, or resurrecting a level of childlike innocence and beauty within ourselves, here is a prayer/affirmation I have used, that I offer for those who are seeking:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to feel connected to all of the light I am capable of channelling forth from the spiritual realm into the physical world. Please help me to have courage, as I acknowledge the ways my conscious self is becoming deeper, holding a greater capacity for compassion and grace in this world. Please let me clearly see the pathways of learning new lessons before me, so that I can navigate these life changes with resilience, patience and bravery.

Let me be a bridge between Soul and earth for my current lifespan and for those who seek to be brought forward alongside, with, or through me. And if some choose a path that is shorter, let me be there on the spiritual, physical, emotional or mental level, to hold them in my heart, as they transition through the network of light into the heart of God/dess once more.

Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

May we each receive the Divine Love and support we need through transitory times.

with light and respect,

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,
