Unity Through Clarity of Self and Relationship

(This Blogpost was/is a Weekly Forecast for Aug 11th to Aug 18th that expanded)

Unity can be perceived and practiced in many different ways. We can find a unity of self through accepting the many levels of being we are currently working to assimilate into wholeness; the feelings we carry and the mental balance we seek to categorize or synthesize with our spiritual understanding.  We may find unity in physical movement that draws us completely into being present, our spiritual self relaxing into the meditation of ebb and flow, so that we experience the ecstasy of divine source and incarnated self.  We may feel unified in our understanding of one another’s  needs and dreams, in a common goal or prayer for the future.And yet, we may also find that to be unified int he self requires time and sacred space to be present fully with our own transformation, and that to do so requires etheric space from shared unity with others in certain ways.

Relationships shift as we each choose or do not choose to feel and share unification. Yet in this broadcasting or connective aspect of life, we are better suited to clearly identifying that which is Divinely healthful at this time, when we have boundaries that allow us to perceive our now experience, and then share through Clarity of personal light, with others. Many people on the planet are not raised to have a clear boundary of energy that separates them from the emotional, spiritual, mental and sometimes physical empathetic experience of the world at large.  As the many layers of being and manifest reality bombard the senses that one has either sought to block or dampen as a survival technique, the debris of many thousands of experiences can pile up like dust over our trust in the value of our particular receptive qualities. This multilayered karmic debris can feel uncomfortable or heavy, and without the proper tools of understanding, people  may seek to block their sensitivity in many ways depending on their life experience during formative years.  Some find dampening of reception in addictions of many kinds, yet actual Peace and relief that is sought for, can never truly be found without self acceptance and often hard work through healing. Cleaning and clearing allows us to stream in Divine Source and support for a rich understanding of that which unifies us as humans and sentient beings, that which is our individual learning experience and that which may be entirely another’s journey that we can send a prayer or a thoughtful action of support towards, yet do not need to experience in all ways ourselves.  We may Love a person who is currently in a self destructive cycle.  We may find that a cause, job, friendship or group we felt very passionately about has taught us all we needed at this time in our life and seek to move into a fresh focused state of personal evolution.  In shifting or changing focus, in wishing to move away from lessons or patterns that no longer serve our highest healthful good, we may feel the need for personal unification and communication with another on the Spirit Realm. If it I through shifting a relationship so that personal unification can occur, then here is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

There is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

Out in Nature I visualize a globe of light surrounding my body and self, to filter out all lower vibrations of fear or anger, or distractions. (Visit “Boundaries and Personal Power from Soul Evolution for a more expanded explanation) From the globe of light, I ask for divine assistance in communicating with the greater Light body of the person I am working alongside,  and from within that globe I send out actually words, Love, forgiveness, communication in emotional release or encouragement, or whatever other aspect of being seeks to be clearer.  Whether there is a shift on the physical level immediately with the relationship, or whether there is simply an incredible sense of freedom and relief on the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects depends on the Free Will choices of both parties.  This is not a practice that controls another, and will afford no change unless done with an intention for the greatest healing and clearing for both parties concerned.  I Clean and Clear this way often, and am always so deeply grateful for the Love and depth of understanding the follow’s in my own consciousness and in the energy field I have been connecting to of another.  

“An affirmation and prayer I have found useful during many past-life relationship interactions:

“Dear Creator/God/dess, please help me to see clearly the ways in which a past life with this person is influencing our present interaction. Please send me clear dreams or messages to help me understand how we can mutually heal from the karma we have jointly created. Please send Archangel Michael to cut any chords of fear that attach us from this or any previous lifetimes so that only the light of Divine Love remains between us. I ask that healing on all levels occur at this time, and should our lives now take separate pathways, I ask that we do so with Angelic assistance and forgiveness on a Soul level. Please send the loving compassionate energy of Quan Yin, Archangel Raphael and Jesus to help us to individually and universally heal. Thank you. Amen. Om. Aho.”

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

May this week be a clarification of communication on the highest level of Love and Divine Source with heightened boundaries so that we share only that which we consciously seek to elevate on a universal scale for the highest good of ourselves and humanity and this sacred planet as a whole.

Amen, Om and Aho.

With Light,

Diffusing Anxiety

When I was a little girl, I had the good fortune to interact with a wise clairvoyant woman who assisted me on my path. I was eleven years old, and she said to me, “Your greatest challenge, will be to overcome Fear.” As a child I was afraid of very few things in this world. When discussing fear and the ways it can manifest with my parents, they discussed the concept with me that “behind Anger there is Fear, behind Fear there is Longing.

IMG_1778

As my personal exploration into the nature of Fear deepened, I came to acknowledge that I was fearful of receiving and sharing my spiritual perceptions in many social instances. I also acknowledged a deep longing within myself to make changes and space in my life to be more aligned with my Soul Path. For the highly sensitive individual, and those who are newly ‘awakening’ or acknowledging their sensitivities and etheric perceptions for the first time, there can be moments where the ‘openness’ of our being is overwhelming and we experience anxiety. Many people guard their inner light, wisdom and knowledge, fearful of the rejection or of being ostracized by the world if they allowed themselves to express fully, who they are. When experiencing an intense time of transition or transformation, we can experience ‘fear’ as old patterns are realized and we are asked to choose new directions in our life and well being. Fear can manifest in many ways, one of which is to cause Anxiety. *Anxiety in this instance, I refer to as a feeling on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels, as well as exhibiting physical manifestations such as elevated heart rate, upset stomach, and hot or cold flashes. Each person deals with anxiety in their own unique way, yet we each benefit from developing further tools that diffuse and release fear.

On the etheric level, when I ‘look’ at myself or another person who is feeling fearful, the image is of a being beneath a dome of cement like energy. Outside the dome of heavy stifling, sometimes crushing energy, is all of the divine assistance, angelic light, ascended masters, guides and helpers a person is surrounded by. To shift, and crack, or release this energy, to break through the stagnant dome, is to allow for the assistance of these helpers to connect more clearly with a person.

When in the presence of anxiety I send out a prayer such as:

“Dear Divine Source of Creation, please send your warrior energy through Archangel Micheal or Kali Ma, to assist me now in releasing all fear based energy surrounding me at this time. I ask that my guardian angels bolster my courage to help me to see the ways in which I have the power to change my experience in all ways. Please help me to feel the bridge of light that connects me to the Divine and send me the assistance of Archangel Sandalphon to carry my prayers for change, wellbeing and self knowledge. Thank you, Amen, Aho and OM.”

After such a prayer, take deep breaths with hands interlaced across the stomach and facing downwards. Connecting with the third chakra, and the ‘power center’ of the being, what images, sensations, feelings or messages does one perceive at this time?

As a highly sensitive and clairvoyant person, I visualize a wave of light washing across the being, and disintegrating the dome of anxiety or fearfulness. When the wave of light on the etheric realm has disintegrated or washed away the anxiety, the mental, emotional and physical body are simultaneously offered an opportunity for positive alignment. I allow for the wave of light to infuse the cells of the body, to create space for the root cause of the fear to surface and be examined, so that release is possible.

Sometimes we must be willing to deepen our self awareness to find the root cause. For example, a few years ago I felt very anxious about earning more money. Yet when I meditated on what was truly causing me anxiety, I found that I wanted to switch career paths, that I yearned to take a chance on myself and follow my dreams for a spiritual based career. The fear surrounding money was actually a longing to invest in myself and to be more spiritually attuned so that I could express my inner Truth. Through allowing for the assistance of the divine to release the dome of anxiety I was carrying around, I began to ‘see’ the ways in which I had the tools, courage and power necessary to make the change I yearned for. Each person has the free will and personal power to develop their sensitivity and understanding of the energetic/ spiritual reality of the universe and of themselves.

When we allow that we can alter our reality on the spiritual level, we empower ourselves to make changes on the physical plane of existence. I have learned that in examining fear and anxiety as teachers and indicators that change is necessary for Divine heath, that we can all be empowered in our commitment to allow transition, transformation and healing in our lives.

Our Hearts Are …

Our Hearts Are The Hearts Of The Planet

We are all capable of manifesting a future for the planet that is based on sustainability, protection and kindness to the animals, plants and our fellow human beings. We contribute to it every day by making choices on the physical plane such as what companies we support, where we buy food, and what jobs we are willing to take. On a spiritual level however, each intentional thought, each dream we have for a future that is based upon more love, helps to shield the earth from greed, and fear, and to promote Love, kindness and compassion. Imagine that the earth is within a globe of light, and that the light is radiant and pure, like a fresh spring of water. As you sip from this water, or as you connect with the light, your etheric body begins to vibrate at a similar level. You reflect this purity, and your cells cleanse themselves to match the purity of the water you have sipped. On a grander scale, if we were all attuning to a more powerful vibration of Love, countries in their entirety, and the world at large to follow, then part of that process will be allowing the wave of grief to pass and make space for the Love that is following.

Perhaps the words or images, or sounds each individual will use to communicate a ‘prayer for a bright future’ will vary. Languages, joyous dance, all may vary, yet the essence of Love is universal, and each individual is capable and valuable in communicating and manifesting more Love.

Taking Your (inner) Child Outside

The earth is like a giant power source of universal consciousness and light, that connected to our physical and etheric bodies is in a constant transformation, with the ultimate goal of peaceful balance.  When people and spiritual healers talk of ‘being grounded’ what they are referring to is the strong and balanced connection between the multilayered self and the resonant energy of the planet completing a circular exchange of healthful energy.

Most people will have a memory or witness a moment with their own children in which a disgruntled, or unhappy feeling diffused and was replaced by joy during an ‘outdoor’ experience.  Perhaps this will be a memory of building industriously for hours with sticks and rocks at a small creek, or the joy of jumping over waves at the sea side.  In my case, making mud pies decorated with dandelions always made me feel happy.

What ever the moment or memory is that holds a positive tone, it is my deep heartfelt wish, that it has been recreated in new ways throughout the course of your lifetime, and that a connection and collaboration of energy exchange exists each day in your life between your Self and the earth.

For myself, I can say I had several years of delightful outdoor play.  Then came the birth of my child, and some of that play slowed down. Yet even the slower interactions based not on adrenaline seeking but on meditative communion with a sleeping baby on my chest, afforded the same balancing of energy.

I’ve heard people describe their meditative state as best achieved through the cessation of thoughts, yet for me, my most successful meditative state is when I am outside, allowing all of the jumbled thoughts, fears, ideas and creative inspiration to rush through my mind like so many galloping horses.  In their wake comes a calm, a settling of the mental dust, a greater space to receive messages from my higher self, and a deep reverence for the earth who is cradling my footsteps, brushing clean my aura and offering deep revitalizing breaths of fresh air.

However you are able to interact with the natural world today, I encourage you to create space to do so.  For some this might be driving home from work with the windows rolled all the way down.  Perhaps others it will be an outdoor exercise of muscle and ecstatic adrenaline.  For others still, a walk or sitting on a favorite bench or chair in the sunlight.  In whatever capacity you are able to interact with the outside world, you will benefit from doing so.

In the depths of winter, such as in the landscape I often reside in, when the temperatures have dropped and the world is soft and white, I like to gaze at a tree and dream of the way the roots are deep beneath the snow, gathering life from the warm earth, and envision that I too am a tree, aware of the many layers of soil and rock, running water, and lava that all exist beneath me. If you were a tree, what tree would you be?  Perhaps drawing this tree, or downloading an image, with strong roots and healthfully lifted branches will be your communion and grounding with nature today.

In honor of the fairy realm, the devas and spirits of the earth, I offer this prayer:

“Blessed trees and plants, and earth, thank you for nourishing and sustaining me.  Thank you for growing towards the light, and reminding me to stretch my awareness, and my being equally between the earth and the etheric light that surrounds us all.  Please God/dess, nourish and protect this earth even as you send angelic assistance and support to each human learning to cherish themselves, one another and the planet. Thank you Archangel Ariel for reminding me to be an advocate of all growing things, both within myself, and in the world to which I am inextricably linked.  Om and Amen.”

Healing Past Life Relationships for Present Life Wellness

IMG_1971

Some of the hardest relationships to let go of, either in friendship or as romantic partnerships, are those in which we are connecting with a soul from a past life, from which one of us died a significant amount of time ahead of the other.  In many ways, one of the soul then spent several years mourning the loss of the companionship, and as light often calls to light, another lifetime has come into being in which we are attracted to one another.  In some cases this can be a healthy reunion, built around mutual respect, affection and supreme love.

In other cases however, some of the emotional debris from the previous life can muddy and complicate the present incarnations relationship in an unhealthy, yet seemingly inextricable way.

An example of this might be of two friends of a similar age, yet one of which requires allot of ‘mothering’ from the other.  Though neither are a mother in this life, one constantly is the recipient of the late night  requests for problem solving, and seems to continuously require a fountain of nurturing.  With meditation and prayer, one of the friends has a vivid memory of being a parent in a previous lifetime.  In this scenario as in all others of such a reunion, it takes two people determined to be actively aware of themselves and their energy bodies, to help heal the wounds from the past, and move forward into a brighter future together.  If only one soul wants to grow into a new bond in this present life, the relationship cannot continue.

Identifying these kinds of relationships can be accomplished by praying before sleep for a message, image, or dream to recognize the previous lifetime.  If you are an individual who does not often remember dreams, it can be accomplished by seeking out an energy worker, angel card read or psychic you feel safe and comfortable with and asking them to ‘read’ the energy surrounding the relationship.  A few strong indicators that a connection has unresolved karmic debris from other lifetimes influencing the present day interactions are:

1. You feel exhausted after casual interactions with a person

2. A relationship ‘feels’ far more intensely real to you than the other person seems to be feeling in return.  Your desire for a deeper soul level connection is rejected repeatedly by this person, and they seem not to understand you.

3.You have never met a person before, yet the first time you lay eyes on them you experience a very intense emotional response (love, fear, anger, yearning, surprise, a full spectrum of all and more).

A positive prayer to release past life trauma and heal karmic debris is:

Image

“I call on my higher self, angelic helpers, God/dess and spiritual guides and guardians to please help to surround me in a spiral of light.  I ask that all past trauma in relationship with “insert name” be healed for the mutual and individual benefit of us both.  I pray that on a soul level we are able to forgive and be forgiven by one another, so that our divine life purpose in this present life can be celebrated and met. Thank you angels for helping to clear my energy in this way, I receive your blessings of health, on all levels with open arms and heart.  OM (or Amen)”

During this prayer in vision a spiral of light surrounding your body from the tips of your toes to the sky.  It can be a combination of vibrant colors, or gleaming white light.  As the spiral circulates, allow the ‘debris’ to be sucked into it and carried up into the sky where it can be transformed by the angelic realm.  Notice any areas in the body that experience momentary lightness, or a relief of pain and be gentle with them.  Take an epsom salt bath and indulge in self nurturing.  Just as taking off a bandage can reveal tender skin, so to can healing karmic wounds leave the Self feeling newly vulnerable.

If this prayer creates a positive change in ones own self esteem, it is important to be aware that we all heal in different ways and at different stages.  If the person you wish to heal with begins to drift away from you, sometimes the last stage of healing is that you let one another go.  If the souls have truly healed the past life trauma, then they each have the opportunity to begin a new learning experience together, based on mutual love and respect, or to attract new learning and evolutionary experiences with other light beings.  Letting go can be sad, it can release grief from both  or many lifetimes together, yet I promise you, that the greatest of loves never die.  They are brilliant colors on the energetic plane that still connect the souls that feel them.  True love is limitless, and supports the individual soul path of each of us.  If the love was from the purest part of the soul, then it continues to connect us, past time, through new lifetimes, and across the boundaries of the physical world. 

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Being Free from Disappointment

Dealing with disappointment is a skill that can benefit from some fine tuning on the etheric plane as well as emotionally. To stimulate a balancing of all of our ‘bodies’, begin with the physical, through balancing the third and fourth chakra’s.  Most people will experience disappointment as a feeling in their stomach, or in relationships, at their heart center.  A heaviness or pressure in either of these regions can lead to further feelings of self doubt, lethargy, and fluctuations in appetite. Bending forward in a forward bend, seated or standing helps to release from the stomach.  Spreading your shoulders wide to the sky and tilting your head very gently back, opens and clears at your heart center.

IMG_0554

The steps to fully alleviating these feelings, are to at first acknowledge them with Love.  Of course, the lottery ticket that didn’t win, the relationship that was painful, the job  promotion or offer that didn’t come was disappointing.  Most importantly, those disappointments are in no way a reflection of your worthiness, beauty, or soul purpose.  They are experiences on the human plane that come with having signed on for your present incarnation as a person.

Acknowledge that you are disappointed, yet simultaneously take the time to allow and ask for help from your guardian angels, helpers, guides, ascended masters and god-force, also aids in washing away, so to speak, the energy from your heart and stomach. Your third chakra, for example, corresponds with your personal feelings of Power.  It is the driving force that allows you to be assertive, physically strong, shielded from lower energies, and positive in life affirming action.  When you apply for a dream job, one you don’t think you may get, and you don’t get it, you are disappointed. You have also, however, just sent out an energy beam to the universe saying you are starting to realize you deserve a happier, more fulfilling position than you believed previously.  This message is loud and vibrant.  It is like an energetic shooting star that gets brighter with your continued confidence in yourself.  To allow the disappointment of an initial try to dim that light is counterproductive to your overall well being and success.  Look at the situation that has disappointed you, then allow yourself to release it, and say affirmatively from a place of your own centered power at your stomach, “I create space for greater happiness and abundance in opportunity, awareness, and love.”

Each of us has a negative personal mantra chorus we carry around that blocks our abilities to manifest, and your angels and guides sincerely want you to change that mantra to a positive one.  Absolutely, on every level they want you to be vibrating at your highest potential for energy, abundance, prosperity, love and personal truth.  If you wish to identify the negative mantra, take a moment to follow the pathways of your thoughts when you experience disappointment.  What is the first response in thought you have?  Is it, “I knew I couldn’t get another job.” or “I’m not worthy of love,” or even “I’ll never change.”  Widen your awareness and ‘feel’ where these thoughts are experienced in your body, most often it will be at your stomach or heart.

To change these affirmations to ones radiating light, take out the negative and replace it with a ultra-positive. “I am absolutely deserving of love,” “I excel and enjoy my career, I find creative solutions and opportunities everywhere I look,” or “Every day I am growing and learning along my joyous soul path.”  The difference in feeling, on the emotional, physical and spiritual plane will be almost instantaneous.

To remove the last traces of disappointment energetically, consider seeking a session with a light worker, this could be a book from the library, a massage, reiki, or an angel card session.  Your thoughts are alchemical, you have the ultimate power to transmute fear into gold, but sometimes, even the most balanced, grounded, independent person can use some help.  Asking for help is another lesson in dealing with disappointment, and there is no shame in it, rather the opposite.  The angels applaud your desire to reach out and have light reflected to you through friendships, relationships or services.

 

May your day be free of disappointments, yet if they come, may they not control you.  Be rich in your self praise and personal journey of exploring the new avenues that are unfolding.

with Light,

Kamia
