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.

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.

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
