Reception and the Timelessness of Being

 I meet people every day, who see between realities; into fairy, onto the planes of those that are still in the process of joining light, acting as guides and guardians, ascended masters and angelic beings.  I notice the beauty of their gifts, even while seeking to send them a prayer for self acceptance.  Sometimes the road is many lifetimes long, and for those of us who have the capacity to share with art or words or healing touch, gentle encouragement of unfolding, we are blessed with the responsibility of amplifying the radiance in others.

Many people are born with a high sensitive awareness of the spirit realm.  In certain cultures this can be validated through oral traditions, ancestral teachings, or a devout culture of spiritual practice. Praying over places on the earth where great trauma has occurred, for example, helps to unlock and invite healing into the memory the earth plane carries, as well towards the energy imprint that Souls who past in such places have left. In other cultures such as the west, some people with high sensitivities, and several life times worth of divine wisdom to share, may choose to block reception to feel a greater sense of ‘belonging’ in environments that do not prioritize spiritual gifts.The awareness of the Soul, however is not dampened permanently, it is rather like turning down the volume of a radio, reception is still occurring regardless of the volume we have sought to implement.  At different times in life, a person may undergo a powerful life change and seek to open, tune in anew, or raise the volume of their receptive qualities once more.  During times such as these, life in general can have a sense of being overwhelming.  Just like a high volume on the radio, we drown out different receptive qualities, based on that which we highlight, or choose as priority of focus.  For example, much of waking life requires attention to detail; driving, chores, work tasks, family care taking.  Yet, there is a portion of our awareness that is constantly receiving intuitive information; a field that held a battle of long ago, a building with deep sorrows and many innocent deaths, a roadway where a spirit travels seeking to understand that the body no longer houses them, and their family is far away.  We may also be receiving the imprint of Ley lines, the patterns of energy that move in conjunction with this blessed earth, where power flows to direct pure water, regrowth, animal interconnectivity, and doorways between realities.  Like overlapping pieces of silk, the fold of time and space, allow those with a particular ‘knowing’ to perceive both the beauty that this earth offers us all, and the pathways that have been walked before us, and beyond us, in a circular reception of manifestation.

 

In previous blogposts and for entire chapters of ‘Soul Evolution’ I have discussed the concept that sending a prayer out into the cosmos, through my clairvoyant perception, is like a beam of light that travels seamlessly through time and space and can effect positive change on multiple levels of being.  For those who are just discovering, or (rediscovering) their gifts I offer this Prayer:

 

“Dear Divine Source, Please send angelic warriors to the space surrounding these readings, to cut through chords of lower vibrations related to fear, or disempowerment sent forward through physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual pathways in any direction of time or space.  Please surround these people with an aura of Divine Love, Light and Protection, so that encased in a globe of radiance, their own beautiful Soul’s feel safe to share and express the gifts brought forward into this life-walk.  May the messages that are received, for each persons particular sensitivities, be accompanied by the comfort and solace of their Guides and Guardian Angels.  Please send clear messages each time they ask, for healing, health, courage and grace to be present to remind them, they are not alone in their ‘knowing’.  May all feel connected at the heart to the potential of this wondrous planet for evolution and change,  And may all receive support on a daily basis from nature to encourage further ‘knowing’.  With gratitude for the many light based peaceful warriors who are incarnated at this time, Amen, OM and Aho.”

How do we direct the flow/reception of our intuitive divine source guided wisdom, to be received and processed in the most healthful for our individual beings experience? The first step, is of course to accept that this reception is occurring. Through acceptance we work towards an assimilation of all that we are.  Discernment of that which we receive that is distraction, or clearing of karmic debris, vs that which we receive as possible timelines for a betterment of humanity as a whole is a lifelong process.

What barriers we choose to create as filters of the stimulus our body and being seek to assimilate into daily life must, however, be an individually determined pathway.  Some people may chose to devote a meditative space to each day for reception and integration; ten minutes less sleep at the beginning of the day as the sun rises, and the intentions for wellness are offered forth into the day.  Others may have an hour a week, a carefully protected space of time and energy they utilize through journalling, movement or art.  Some may wait a decade and book a vacation retreat during which the backlog of receptive knowing rockets through the consciousness in a massive wave.

Any tools we give ourselves for sorting through that which we receive, ideally help to increase our vital life stores and self esteem. For those who are seeking to shift conscious levels of being in a more focused daily manner I offer this gentle practice that has been useful for me over many years.  Again, the words used, the time allotted, each is can be based on what ‘resonates’ for the individual who is practicing.

  • When seeking to reconnect with the many levels of being, to assimilate messages from this physical reality, yet to identify and move through the imprints of energy that are all around us each day, we begin by purifying the body.   Some people may choose to pray over a glass of water each morning, (‘Soul Evolution’ offers prayerful words and practice for clearing the energy of a fresh new day,) for clarity and cleansing.  We honour that these bodies are the receptive tuning instruments for the vibrational spectrum of reality in all ways.  (Physical level of Being)
  • Next we ask for protection and grace from the Divine.  The God/dess that resonates with us most in name, image or feeling.  Ascended Masters can act as resources for learning, but Divine Source is what ultimately allows us to surround our energetic being with light and shield. (Spiritual level of Being)
  • From a place of protection we create a solid framework on the energy plane by acknowledging that which we are willing to receive throughout the day; this can be simple such as these two  phrases I have often used:

 “I am Willing only to explore Joy and Lightness of Being today.” 

Or 

“Today I honour grief I am currently releasing from this and previously lifetimes, with assistance form the Angelic Beings in alignment with me at this time, for  aligning with divine health.”

Giving ourselves permission to voice with the power of our will that which we are willing to receive throughout the day can have profound effects on our life experience.  (Mental level of Being)

  • Next we tune in to the emotional experience our day flows through.  We may have feelings of sorrow and joy, boredom and humour, elation and despair during one days cycle.  We feel so deeply on the human plane, and it is such a gift to experience the intensity and learning that emotions offer.  Throughout the day, we can explore how each emotional experience relates to the intention we set forth.  When we asked for a joyful day, what occurred?  Did we take note of the joyous flight of a bird, even as we witnessed sorrowful experience in those around us, both living or on the energetic level of being?  Did we see the beauty of a flower even as we sent a prayer for those who passed in distress in a place or location we inadvertently visited and ‘received’ an inner knowing about?  Emotions do not nullify our reception and integration of that which exists on the spiritual and physical plane.  We can have intense joy that exists alongside sorrow.  Our intention for the day will not halt our capacity to grow and experience life, yet it can help us to identify the resonance that we sought to align with.  Some of my deepest understandings of Joy came during tragic moment in my life.  When the depth of Love and appreciation of this experience of living was so poignantly clear. (Emotional Level of Being)

A day lived with a return to attention of that which surfaced as the mind awoke and the spirit and body recognized union of self, can afford a deep level of Peace when repetitively practised.  When we stop blocking our intuitive wisdom, we often experience a profound shift in Perception.  We may over time explore new jobs, partnerships, relationships with ourselves and the world at large.  Or we may simply find that the vitality of each day has become more vibrant as we embraced a more unified understanding of our own gifts. Choosing self discipline for repetitive spiritual sacred space and awareness can effect massive life shifts.  The wellspring of wisdom that so many Souls carry, could shift the energy of this world in miraculous ways.  Yet, to do so, we must all make free will choices to allow ourselves to ‘see’ Clairvoyance, ‘feel’ Clairsentience, ‘hear’ Clairaudience and ‘know’ Claircognition, more. 

 

Patience and compassion for ourselves and the world at large.

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. The phrase “The Will and the Word’ often appears in the delightful fantasy series ‘The Belgariad’ by David Eddings.

Pathways of Compassionate Light

“Coming to the earth plane is a soul level choice that we have all made during our cosmic evolution as incarnated beings at this time. The common threads of light that connect us are brilliant hues of varying vibrations, which have at their center the highest vibration: that of Divine Love. Although many will connect to Divine Love through the modality of different religions with varying names and manners of prayers, I truly believe that when we are connected to God/dess, what we are connecting to is the same radiance, the same light that permeates the universe and shines within us all; what people then choose to do with their inner light, is, of course, governed by the Law of Free Will. We all are given choices daily and throughout our lives to direct our light with free will. This theme repeats in many religions: when in communion with the highest manifestation of Love, we contribute most to the overall positive evolution of our individual lives, our communities, our species and the planet as a whole.
This book is a manifestation of my communion with my Higher Self, the cosmic universe as I perceive it at this time and a desire to communicate an affirmation of our capacity as humans to share in a daily realization of our souls’ ability to radiate and attract Love to the benefit of both soul path growth and universal blessings. In simple speak, this book is an exploration of each individual’s worthiness and capacity to be loved and express love to others. For ‘love’ is a word used daily in the ‘readings’ that I have facilitated for others and the messages I receive from the Angels most often is of teaching and encouraging others to love themselves and therefore share Love with the universe. It is the most prevalent and the ‘loudest’ message of them all.
Compassion and love for the self affords opportunities to heal our etheric, emotional, mental and physical bodies. Often people carry around an energy mantra of I am undeserving. This creates an energy field based on lack and so the energy of the universe that vibrates alongside the person is unbalanced and dim. To connect with pathways of compassionate light is to clear the energy field of the self with positive messages, such as: I can, I will, I deserve. This sends out a ‘chord’ of light to the universe that seeks to connect with the energy matrix uniting all living things: the mountains, the ocean, people, animals and the cosmos at large. Through being kind first to ourselves, feeding our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical bodies with positive energy and messages, we are able to become an intersection of light that is both supported and aids in sustaining the overall vibration of the universe. The Angels, Ascended Masters and our myriad array of Helpers from the Divine want us to love our Selves so deeply and truly that each cell in our magnificent body begins to vibrate with Love. This is the brightest, loudest, most powerful vibration. We cannot send out these powerful vibrations when we are feeding our own psyche with negative based thoughts. When we invest in ourselves with self-kindness, encouragement, compassion and grace, this personal loving care becomes an investment in the universe at large.”

“May all who read this be reminded daily that your Angels, Guides, Helpers, Higher Self and connection to God/dess is true and pure and that you are a manifestation of Divine Love in every cell of your body.
In offering of this recognition of the light within us all, I would like to share this affirmation that I have found useful for connecting to my Higher Self and the Light within the Universe:

“Dear Universal Consciousness, Archangels, Guardian Angels, Gods and Goddesses, Ascended Masters and Spirits of the Earth, please help me to recognize the light within others, let me perceive their highest vibrational potential so that I may be reminded of my own highest truth.”

Another variation of this affirmation is:

“May I speak, perceive and be a conduit of universal Love in all my actions, and may I forgive myself for the actions as a human that have filled me with guilt or fear, so that in releasing these fears, I make greater space for Love in all that I do. Help me [God/dess, Angels or the Ascended Master you feel most connected to at this time], on all levels to remain grounded into this present reality and incarnation so that I am able to manifest this Love on the physical plane. Amen. Om and Thanks.”

Self Care in Times of Upheaval

There are times in life in which we each experience intense upheaval. A shifting of perception, experience or insight that occurs on one or many levels. During upheaval our experience may be fraught with pain, despair, joy, intuitive leaps, harmony, synchronicity or any and all other feeling. It can be through bearing witness to another’s journey or it can be a challenge that occurs on the physical level that connects to deep work in our emotional bodies. It can be a mental reconfiguration of beliefs, ideologies or faith that is like a lightening strike, and leaves us reconsidering our place and purpose in this world. On the spiritual level we are each capable of intuitive leaps of faith that transform our experience, our Soul Path, in one lifetime, accelerated far beyond the many centuries or thousands of previous lifetimes. Spiritual perception or enlightenment can manifest in different ways for every individual. We are each entitled to our personal unfolding. Yet, during upheaval, a re-configuring of that which has formerly made us feel secure, assured or safe in our prior experiences, we are each offered support and assistance from the Divine in a number of ways. The planet is home to millions of people, those who resonate and teach in so many diverse and powerful ways. We are offered the teachings and support, the service of this diverse world when we are willing to be open in our learning, our gathering of tools, and our expansion of self. I am deeply grateful for my additional sensory perception of the manifest world, and celebrate the wisdom gathered through interactions with Divine Source as Angels, Ascended Masters, the Fairy Kingdom, Spirit Guides and the Earth every day.

For those who find themselves in a cycle of upheaval, of re-examining that which they thought to be ‘true’ as new truth personally emerges, I offer some of the practices that have been of use in my life, with the preface, that I too, continue to learn and evolve and send out gratitude to all those who with a compassionate heart, are also evolving.

1.) Breathe into the Present. We are each multidimensional beings. We receive energy simultaneously from the present, the past and the manifesting futures. We are each, when we find ourselves in the centre of a massive transformation offered the simple gift of Breath work. Yoga, Thai Chi, and many other eastern philosophies that create union between body, mind, spirit and heart all emphasize the importance of Breath. The tool of awareness that draws life-force, prana, chi, shakti, into our cells and allows us to centre and ground into the present, to draw our awareness away from fear based thinking into the Here and Now. Whatever choices, movement or change we are experiencing, we can each spare the time and claim the sacred space to Breath 4 deep breaths, or 8, or 12 or 20. When the physiology of the body is offered this tool, we each can connect with a sense of Calm. In this calm, what are some of the things/feelings/learning that the self has Gratitude for in this moment? Gratitude can be for small and large aspects. Gratitude for the sun shining on ones face, or the chance to connect in a new way with loving the self?

For further reading on this practice visit: A Warrior’s Breath

2.) Draw a circle and bisect it with a cross shape, turning it into a wheel of self. In the four quadrants write:

Physical
Emotional
Mental
Spiritual

Looking at this drawing consider, how many hours of the day or how many days of the week, or how many years in my current life cycle do I spend living in/devoted to each of these quadrants? Do two of the four predominantly use up the time of focus and being? If so, what does this current upheaval/challenge/life cycle offer to teach me about exploring the other aspects of self for personal Balance or Transformation?
Each level of self is intricately connected to the other levels. If we, for example, are having a deeply physical experience, what does the emotional self seek to learn/express/clear? Some people may live the majority of there lives in only one aspect of the self, and yet through the connection to a loved one, or the world events at large, may find a time in life in which their beliefs, and personal perceptions are called into question/exploration affording a deeper human experience.

For further exploration of this practise visit: Balancing the Wheel of Self

3.) Ask for the help that we each identify we need. From the above practice we may each see the ways in which we could benefit from guidance, further tools, and support. On the emotional level do we seek the support of friends and family through loving words? On the mental level do we seek the support and tool kits a therapist, psychologist or counsellor could offer? On the Spiritual level are we returning to, or discovering space in our lifetimes for a new form of Faith that supports us in this new self that is emerging? The light that is offered through many diverse spiritual practices can offer a deep Peace to those that are seeking light in a new and expanded way. Perhaps through books, psychic readings, or other energy healing modalities. On the Physical level have we met the basic needs of our body? Have we received guidance, diagnosis, second opinions or medication that help us to work through pain? Have we fed out bodies nourishing food, and received the sleep we need to make clear choices about asking for the help during our upheaval? Have we experienced the healing touch of massage, reflexology or a simple but powerful hug?

For further tools for discernment visit: Boundaries and Personal Power

During the approaching year, or in any cycle of rebirth or upheaval, a prayer I will often use is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess. of creation, please send the aspects of light that are most in alignment with my cycle of growth at this time. Help me to receive compassion from the universe, and from those who are in my direct life path at this time. Help me to be patient as this new level of being unfolds, and to set healthy boundaries for myself regarding self healing and existence, in this evolving world. Please let the light of Shiva and Archangel Micheal clear away my fears of unworthiness surrounding health, on any level, and send the light of the Divine Mother to infuse every cell of my energy body and physical body with regenerative growth and powerful Love. Thank you for reminding me through messages, signs and angelic support, that I am capable of becoming the new me, and releasing with peace, all that which no longer serves my purpose. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Whether we are seeking connection to ourselves in a new or ancient way, may we do so with the knowledge that our Soul is radiant light, and we are each shining the way for others, whether consciously or unconsciously in this myriad connection of humans and light matrix.
Thank you for shining!

with light, compassion, and empathy for all of our struggles and miracles in growth,

Solstice, December 21st

During the longest night of the year, when the stars and snow reflect one another, and if we are graced with the light of the moon, a gentle glow infuses the spaces between earth and sky, I like to say a prayer to release the past year and to invite in the Light of the returning sun.

For those who feel drawn to honouring this cycle of rebirthing the light in such a way, I share a version of my yearly prayer:

“Dear God/dess, dual aspects, soft darkness and unfolding light, please help us find our way through each level of being.

Thank you for the lessons and growth we have each been navigating in the darkness of subconscious self, and thank you for the opportunity to guide ourselves and others with deeper levels of compassion this growth has afforded.

Please bless those that we love, and those that challenge us, with angelic protection and assistance as they navigate their own darkness, and pathways.

Please help us to see all of the Beauty we are capable of inviting into our lives as the Light returns with this shift of seasons, and bring forth the Abundance we carry within, for the betterment of this world as a whole.

Thank you for blessing the relationships in our lives with acceptance and grace, and for bringing Love to those who are searching to share and receive it.
With the help of the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fairy Kingdom, Ancestors and Spirit Guides, may we receive and share with gratitude the return of Light, and the lengthening daylight hours, with renewed faith that through each cycle, we will find the courage and strength needed to navigate this life. Amen, OM and Aho.”

Thank you for all the ways you shine, in the spirit world, like distant stars through the darkest night’s sky, sharing hope with one another.

The Inner Marriage for Healthful Relationships

We all have a divine masculine and feminine aspect of self. We carry the capacity for these qualities to exist in sacred union within our core. Like an inner marriage, or a spiral of light the two qualities of our being combine to create a central power source that feeds and fuels our life experience, past lives and future incarnations.

This aspect of being on the internal level, the etheric union of self, is mirrored and explored through the relationships that we encounter on the physical plane. Seeking to find a balanced level of divine masculine or feminine self, we will often attract partners, relationships and connections that offer learning and growth. Our highest level of being, our Soul, seeks to filter our natural divine light into our consciousness in a number of ways. Sometimes our relationship experiences seek to spark our protective, self sustaining, fierce or courageous qualities. Other times we are sent opportunities to explore vulnerabilities, softness, gentleness or humour.

We each have an infinite number of qualities, gifts and experiences we are able to attract during the course of several lifetimes. With the gift of clairvoyance, when working alongside others, and exploring my own previous lives, I often see the ways we are each pass alongside previous soul encounters, past life loves, in our current lifetime. The chords of light that connect us to one another and through time and space, carry the resonance and echoes from past lifetimes. How we approach the interactions in our current lifetimes, will renegotiate the energy exchange both in the present and into future encounters, should we incarnate alongside once more. As a teen/young adult I felt bombarded by past life connections. People who I had died alongside, loved or felt hurt by, appearing in this present life with no ‘memory’ of me. Those learning opportunities, many painful, eventually helped me to clearly create boundaries of what I sought to learn as an adult. Many people experience intense connections throughout the course of their present lives, that are deeply impacted by the past life resonance the two individuals share.

With devotion to self awareness, we are offered ample chances to notice the way the divine masculine self, or feminine aspects of being were encouraged, distracted, or depleted through particular combinations. In adult relationships, many people seek to find their soulmate to experience divine and sacred union. Yet it is in connecting and fostering a union of self, that the wholeness of being, that some attribute to an outside source, is truly celebrated. Once this inner marriage occurs, the Soulmate that help to amplify the inner union of self, is more easily attracted into tones energy field.

Through a union of self, the tone of all other relationships will shift. Through discovering the unique qualities of being that are ones own strengths and nurturing qualities, we are each able to identify the ways other people can encourage, support and be celebrated in their own ways for meaningful and lasting relationships. Marriages of all kinds take constant determination by both parties to be growing, recommitting, and honestly exploring the ways the inner marriage of self, the core power source is radiant or feeling depleted of light. A person may have a fierce inner warrior masculine energy that attracts several partners who seek to explore their own warrior self, yet in all honesty, when finding the mate that is most likely to amplify the balanced self, the person may choose someone with a gentle and healing divine masculine attribute. Together the two energies create a balance of light exchange in union, and with the world at large. In another circumstance, the divine feminine aspect of being may have a powerful knowledge or energy for rebirth, death and regeneration, and attract fiery qualities in relationship that help to feed this intense emotional level of being. Yet in balanced partnership the partner who is most suited to amplifying those gifts may carry a grounded divine feminine light who has gifts for patience instead of fire.

Partners, romantic relationships, and marriages all amplify qualities within the two parties in some way. We may choose on a soul level to wade through the intensity of feeling that comes from exploring imbalance for several years, or lifetimes. Yet we always have the power to choose to devote honest exploration of soul path as individuals and to encourage growth and soul development in the beloved. To honour our need for years or lifetimes alone, or those times in which partnership is most aligned with our being. Some relationships last an eternity, through several lifetimes. The resonance of love and union resurfacing to offer gifts through a casual encounter in one life or a union of decades in another. Yet, through each interaction we can ask ourselves courageously, does being with this person bring forth the gifts I have to share with this planet? In a way that provides space and energy for my partner to also amplify their gifts?

The following are two prayers I often use in committed relationship, in the eternal endeavour to balance a unified self and in honouring my beloved husband:

For union of Divine masculine and feminine qualities in the self:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please send your angels to assist me in uncovering the aspects of self that are in need of the most Love and attention for empowered balance. Please help me to clearly identify the gifts I carry as an individual in a unification of Divine masculine and feminine qualities, to share with this beautiful world. I ask for the assistance of the Archangel Micheal, to cut through chords of fear, as I explore the ways I empower or disempower myself with current life choices. Thank you for the sending the gentle energy of the Divine Feminine in the aspect of Parvati to help me assimilate the ways I am able to nourish and sustain myself through healing, strengthening, self compassion or transformation. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

For renegotiating energy exchange with the beloved:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help a balanced energy of Love and well being on all levels, flow between myself and my partner. Please send the Archangels most attuned to our soul paths at this time, to assist us as individuals in union as we seek to better support one another with the highest vibrations of Love. May we each have the courage, the grace and the compassion to bring out the divine light we foster, for the good of our marriage, our community and the world at large. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

The power of words when prayed, affirmed or spoken aloud, carry the resonance of our intent. If it is with a faith and pure intention that we seek to know ourselves as individuals and to honour the individual journey of our partners, we are better equipped to identify what needs to shift in relationship, either with ourselves or one another to bring about a more balanced flow of energy on the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual plane. If one quality of being or one person in relationship is always the dominant energy, the imbalance will amplify energy that is perhaps not for the highest good of any. It is a constant renegotiation of ones light, core seIf, soul purpose and feelings of deservedness for joy, that we each must navigate. Yet we are all multidimensional beings, capable of balance, of investment and diversity of energy. We can be honest about where our focus must be for partnership balance and health. We are all capable of amplifying our own and one anthers light. May we each choose to find balance within ourselves, and to help create balance in the world at large through relationship.

Simple Pleasures, Celebrating this Life

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

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

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

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

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

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

with light and respect for your journey,
Fellow Wisdom Keepers, Light-workers, evolving Soul’s and Compassionate Beings,

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.

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,

Kamia
