Balance Through Being Present

IMG_1767

We are all capable of growth in leaps and bounds, or small minute detailed seeds.  We healthfully integrate such growth by accepting the cycle we are currently offered and devoting time and energy to bravely leaping, or carefully scrutinizing these rhythms. Our rhythms are our own, to navigate, celebrate, amplify, and combine with the overall resonance of Divine Source to the best of our capacity each day.  And yet, for those that leap, or those that carefully plan, there are times in life in which we are offered opportunities to elevate our personal vibration and often through the opposite patterning that we are accustomed to.  

Some of us may live many lifetimes in a single incarnated lifespan, some of us may live a very long one life experience; each soul incarnates with the free will, and resonance to fulfill its life path with Grace and self acceptance.  For those that have cycled many times through lifespans, we are able to offer reassurance, a helping, steadying hand to those that are new to the physical, or have not been on the planet in physical reality in a long time.  For those that are new to the earth plane, they are able to remind us of the delight and capacity to bravely explore all human interaction.  

In the duality of exploring new manners and rythms, we evolve a little further towards our own highest good. We all can identify what brings us balance, by looking at the overall patterns and reoccurring life times we attract into daily, yearly and decades of living.  If we are masterful at attracting abundance then what abundance are we capable of bestowing on others?  If we are always in conscious physical being, when and where do we allow ourselves to dream? If always in mental exploration, at what time throughout our lifespan or in each moment of the day will we choose to ‘feel’ and think with the emotional body? For example, if a person is used to carrying others, energetically, the inverse balancing practise, is to release all such sense of responsibility and to identify that the ultimate gift is reminding one another we are capable of carrying ourselves, with God/dess constant encouragement. On the opposite and counterbalancing side of the spectrum of energy exchange, if a person is used to receiving, then the inverse is to give selflessly.  

Each of us is always walking on an etheric web of scales.  Where we drop our attention and harvest intentional creative being, where we draw, sculpt and build new dreams. We are also each susceptible of combining our personal rhythm with an overlying cultural or life pattern in the present worlds manifest reality.  It can be comfortable to believe we should rush, and achieve, because of a thread of energy that flows through current culture in an imbalanced way that promotes dissociation from Peacefulness.  We are able, however with devoted time and energy to each choose to be present in each breath, each moment, and see that while we build empires of being, thought, or material wealth, we can also choose to feel, meditate, simplify and expand our energy field to the more ancient roots, rhythms and threads of energy that circle beyond this present time, and offer an anchor into Peacefulness.

Balance is a daily devotional practice.  It is in connecting more fully with the our physical heartbeat and rhythm, and the mirror, amplifier, greater drum of the planet. Yet it is also in reaching out energetically and identifying patterns that others carry, with depth of compassion and acceptance for the learning path each individual is on. We are always devoted to Peace, how do we choose to balance by embracing the transformative fire of movement and change?  If we are always rushing and achieving, what gifts are we willing to accept into our life for stillness and reception of Beauty? 

If someone seeks assistance through asking questions and a will to learn about our personal unfolding, we can choose to offer teachings, yet we can also choose times to be seekers or students ourselves.  Everyone smoothly may flow from one side, space, level of energy reception, to the next. 

Opening that receptive quality, for identifying where balance can be invited into our lives requires the free will choice, to pause, to rest, and sometimes to change direction. 

For those seeking to feel more balanced at this time in the calendar year, or in their present or approaching decades of self I offer this simple practice that has assisted me in this and previous lifetimes:

Choose a place whether indoors or outside and sit with hands interlaced across the navel. 

Breathe deeply for four to twelve breaths, and with each breath allow that ones heartbeat be noted.

Visualize the in a globe of soft white light.  Inside of that globe, there is only space for Love.  This can be said outlaid or repeated in the mind “There is only space for love in my aura.” This is not to say we may not experience echoes of fear, challenge, struggle, frustration or anxiety in our safe energy boundary, but rather that we are blocking reception of external  fear based energy and identifying what we as an individual are contributing/carrying at this moment in time.

Once the globe of light feels solid, a prayer such as this can facilitate learning surrounding personal Balance :

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for your assistance in cleaning all levels of energy that are no longer in alignment with my highest good.  Please help me to clearly see areas of my life in which I ma ready for healing, or can invite in change.  Thank you for sending my guardian angels, spirit guides, ancestors  or the ascended masters aligned with m at this time, to me in my sleep or during meditation to encourage courage, patience and compassion.  Thank you for this gift of life, I am ready to take responsibility for any actions that are necessary or any inaction that is most healthful during this cycle of self, to continue my growth and personal, and universally connected, evolution.  Amen, OM and Aho.”

After such a prayer,  what do we receive? Approaching this experience with a willingness to Grow, can reveal or solidify deep intuitive wisdom.  Sometimes we grow with so much effort and sometimes with spontaneous acceptance of light speed life shifts. Perhaps we receive messages, clear feelings through self acceptance, we may feel, think, see, or hear messages. There may be fragments of songs, warmth, colour or words. Perhaps we identify we are offered balance through the warmth of a nap, song, spontaneous body movement or sustenance through healthful food, as rises through a series of messages in our globes of protective light.

As we sort through and accept each thought/feeling/sensation as they rise, what do we clearly identify regarding our connection to the external world, after we have invested time and energy in balancing this internal landscape? Is there an invitation to practice forgiveness should another person be seeking to place their burden on our energy shoulders?   We may choose to practice prayer for individuals that are close to energy breakthroughs, after identifying that our role is to self heal and then remind others they are capable of the same.  Acceptance of growth allows whatever cycle is natural at this time, to occur, until a new cycle is invited in.  When we are fluid in our self acceptance, we allow our personal processes to flow more peacefully through our lifespan, and empower all those we encounter that Balance is possible.

With light and kindness for wherever your personal rhythms are guiding your each this month,

Personal Hibernation; the Dream Cycle

December has always felt for me, like a re-entry into the womb of my spiritual self.  I feel myself becoming more internal, like a bear that has entered the cave and is bedding down for the hibernation dreaming months.  The past experiences of the previous year begin to settle in my consciousness, like the dirt on the floor and walls of my bear cave.  As I begin to dream for my future year, for the world as I wish to re-enter it in the spring, and the gifts I hope to bring forth, I can feel how this release of the past year, the settling of etheric experience becomes the rich soil that the new dreams draw sustenance from.  This month, I wish to share one of the internal practices I utilize for a more empowered dream cycle.

Using a pen and paper, write down a list of all that has been accomplished this last year.  Not only the times that a goal was achieved, but also when a challenge was survived.  It is not only the experiences that we celebrated, but the deepening of our compassionate selves, that grew in moments of grief that deserve recognition.  Take time with the writing.  Go back, and add the moments of shame, or guilt, or absolute joy.  When the list feels complete, take a moment to breathe deeply and really integrate, what this list means for oneself in terms of personal growth. Did the experience make the heart feel more open?  Did it add a new level of compassion to share?  Was there a deepening of strength, when something was survived or endured? Were the moments those of faith realized?  Each thing that was noted, has deepened the human experience.  I like to say out loud, or think a prayer during this integration such as:

“Dear God/dess, help me to accept and assimilate the different aspects of ‘self’ this last year has helped polish, reveal, and grow.  Help me to see the value in each experience and to feel compassion towards myself in the learning.  I ask that all Archangels aligned with my life purpose at this time, bring me clear messages and understanding, for the ways in which these new aspects of ‘me’ can be brought forward as gifts for my personal future, and the world at large.  Please guide me towards the time and sacred space that I need to fully integrate these lessons, so that my new dreams have greater space to be planted in my spiritual, mental, emotional and physical being. Thank you, Amen, Om, and Aho.”

If there is another practice that surfaces in the consciousness, such as a walk by moonlight for further contemplation, or an art board to bring forward the previous years growth into a collage with the approaching years dreams, then allow the art to unfold.  Before the solstice, when the light begins to return, we are each given the seasonal integrative opportunity to delve into the ‘darker’ aspects, the dream rich self, and to bring forth the fertile energy of soul-soil.

May your soil be rich, and filled with dreams,

with light,

Be Courageous, and Grow.

Courage can sometimes manifest as our willingness to deal with, in a new way, a situation, pattern or concern that has occurred in our lives. Regardless of how long we have experienced a pattern, situation, relationship dynamic, or challenge, it is with a connection to our personal power and truth, that we use Courage and are able to alter our experience.

We are all beautiful unfolding beings, regardless of the stage of expansion we are each experiencing. For example, we may find that a relationship or interaction leaves us with a feeling of ‘dis-ease’ in the sense that we ‘felt’ our boundaries of self were not fully respected. This can be a result of our inability to firmly express our need for particular boundaries, as well as by coming to a spontaneous realization that what is best for our own personal and optimum health, has in fact changed This change, this desire to invest in a personal wellness, balance and sense of wholeness, is a natural occurrence in each individuals journey of transformation and growth.

It is natural to have felt comfortable in a manner of living, a way of thinking, and being, and find that through self analysis, an expansion of awareness, or time, that they desire to alter ones experience has manifested. The impetus to transform, the moment of realization that leads to the inevitable growth like another petal of a flower opening, draws us each closer to the soul path we have chosen to walk. We may not see every day, and through each instance of growth and transformation, where we are ultimately heading. The power of our free will, to make choices daily, directs us in a helix pattern towards and around our ‘core self’. We are each capable of seeing the world from a new perspective, as we continue on the spiral dance of life. From seeing ourselves with a heightened awareness of potential for joy and empowerment, and through these ‘new views’ we become something greater than we have allowed ourselves to believe we truly are.

IMG_3817

Each human can choose to evolve cosmically, emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally. And with these choices, support and empower others to also open and grow. When we find the personal courage, in any instance, to speak from our place of ‘truth’ to acknowledge our expectations of the world and of ourselves to others, we are sending an etheric wave of energy outwards that reverberates and effects all that we interact with. For example we may decide one day that we desire to feel more vital life force energy in our bodies. Suddenly all of the recipes we are comfortable cooking seem to be flavorless and unappetizing. This is a very physical response to shift that is occurring on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level simultaneously. Our desire to honor a new belief that we are ‘worthy’ of feeling energized and enlivened is spreading through our cells, our aura, and our mental construct of identity. Perhaps it requires a new cooking class, a few hours of research on the internet for recipes, or a visit with a nutritionist. Perhaps it will also require a dialogue with those that we love in our direct circle of family who will have to be supportive of our new initiative when sharing meals.

The impetus to change, the moment of realization that we are yearning for growth in a further direction, requires Courage.

A prayer that I have found useful during times of anxiety, transformation, and personal growth is:

“Dear God/dess Creator of all that is and is possible, please send me the assistance of Archangel Michael, Archangel Ariel and of any and all ascended masters that are working with me at this time to bring forth and encourage my personal power and Courageous self. Please help me to have faith that I am developing, have developed and will continue to find, the tools necessary for the changes that are occurring in my life. Please help me to bolster my faith that the soul path I am walking, is filled with blessings. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Transformation and changes on any level requires intense energy and can often be assisted by a commitment to ‘non attachment’. In this context I refer to ‘non attachment’ as the idea that we can accept that the places, people and feelings that have occurred were real and apart of the learning process that has afforded this new emerging self. I practice ‘non attachment’ by acknowledging the feelings, yet letting them float peacefully away to be cradled and transformed by the earth and the light matrix we are all apart of. Today I felt courageous when I looked at some of the choices I had made previously and acknowledged the ways in which I make different choices now. I practiced non attachment by acknowledging the journey I have taken thus far, and by having faith the the journey I continue on will bring further opportunities to transform, evolve and grow.

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Transformation with Archangels Haniel and Ariel

Peeling away the layers of that which we are ready to move beyond, creating space for unfurling of our ‘wings’ of light and expansive growth, it is healthful to feel connected to the earth as well as to our greater Souls.
With the assistance of archangel Ariel, we accept a communion with the earth, with nature and the earth spirits and fairies. Asking for assistance of archangel Haniel, we are able to perceive the higher resonance of our connection to the Divine. With this fostering of awareness of both the anchor of our physical beings and the light that fuels our transformations on this planet, we create a greater opportunity for equilibrium and positive changes in our own lives and the collective unconscious.
With gentleness for our own transformations, and that of the planet, I thank you for joining me.

with light,
Kamia

Honouring Rejuvenation and Change

During any change, whether a calendar date, a celebrated anniversary, a move or a new job, the physical world both projects and is effected by the spiritual, emotional, and mental mirroring changes.

For years, when I contemplated ‘making a leap of faith’, my mom would suggest jumping off of a low chair onto the ground.  She would say, ‘the physical world and the corresponding spiritual change like to be connected in a way that honors both’. Even the smallest physical action can be a healthy corresponding resonant balance with the other level that are changing.  One does not need to jump off anything very high when contemplating a leap of faith, in fact choosing a ‘safe’ physical action/creation is just as effective.

As another calendar year approaches, a job change is contemplated, a move or new home is manifested, remember to create and honor each level of the corresponding changes in simple ways.  If you have entered a new relationship, find a place that resonates with safety and kindness such as a beloved bench or  hillside.  If you are a visual person, consider bringing a pen and paper.  If you are an auditory person, choose a place you will feel inspired to sing or chant.  If you are a textural, feeling oriented person, consider essential oils or flower essences such as rose, lavender, or frankincense. When you have found your special place, take a few moments to ground into your being through deep belly breaths.  I enjoy inviting each breath to revitalize and heal my cells.  This is achieved with a thought, or prayer.  As an example for inviting healing in Nature:

I accept and allow assistance and aid from my angels, and the fairies.  I ask that God/dess send the Archangels, and Ascended Masters who will be the most beneficial for my health and well being at this time, and I thank them for all of their love-based transformational light.

When you feel guided or encouraged to open your eyes, allow any sensations, messages, or images that flow through your mind to be observed.  These are messages and guidance from your angels and the other light beings that are surrounding you and encouraging you to grow. Perhaps you receive an image or though about your home, and you feel as though that home has residual energy from previous experiences that you are ready to release or transform.  To do so, envision the space filling with brilliant light, or song, or warmth.  Ask that the angels help you to cut any fear based chords, to clear the space of the fear, and replace it with more room for Love. Follow your intuition and inner knowing.  If you see a space with colors that are different from the ones you have chosen, perhaps it is time for a change of scenery and in the physical reality, to add new colors through a coat of paint or different curtains. The homes we live in retain the trace energy of those that have lived in them previously.  We can ask for the angels to bring fresh light, to clear a space and assist us in transforming the energy of the rooms and building into something that resonates more fully with our own wellness and light.  If at any time, you experience fear during this process ask for Archangel Michael’s assistance.  He carries a brilliant blue sword of light and is always available for clearing fear, and protecting each and any of us from lower energies.  Clearing our homes can correspond with a change in season, or year, or personal rhythm such as a birthday or other anniversary.  Through angelic assistance, as well as some corresponding inspiration to clear out things, to clean or to recycle, we are supporting the spiritual intention with a physical manifestation.

On an emotional and mental level, now employ the tools you have carried with you.  What are the aspects of your life or being that you are ready to release?  Writing them down on a piece of paper employs the mental aspect, and relates it to the physical.  So too does singing, listing or chanting those same things.  Perhaps as a very ‘feeling’ oriented person, there are relationships or thoughts that wish to be released, painful experiences that the self would like to heal from or transform.  At this time, the essential oils, especially the gentle ones listed above can be utilized.  If there is a relationship that you are ready to heal from as well as release, consider placing a drop of rose essence at your heart center, right between your breasts/pectorals.  Perhaps there was a job that was very emotional and mentally draining, a drop of frankincense at the belly button helps to stimulate your personal power, self esteem, and assertiveness.

If you have chosen the piece of paper and writing, and are ready to release everything that has been written down, you could consider burning it to signify release, or if you feel more drawn to transforming it another way, it could be buried in your garden, where so many beautiful plants blossom and grow.

If you have been singing, chanting, or shedding a few tears, remember to gift yourself with a high resonance and sing  or say words that feel empowering.  Perhaps they will be as simple as “I have the courage to effect positive changes in my life!” Accompanied by a few ‘woops’ of delight.

If you have chosen to feel the release and thoughts, or use essential oils, incorporate something that feels nurturing and supportive.  This could be standing up and dancing, or rolling your head gently as if you are giving yourself a loving neck massage.  Interlacing your fingers and placing them over your solar plexus is also an excellent way to ground and connect with your personal resonance, feelings and energies.  This simple gesture does not inhibit your ability to send love and nurture those around you, it simpley allows for your to feel connected to your own emotions and not swept up in another persons experience.

In whichever way you have brought an awareness and healing, transformational honoring experience to the changes that are occurring in your life, I wish you support, stamina and rejuvenation.

Though not always comfortable, changes and growth are a natural experience and in their own way, encourage our individual light to shine even more brightly.
