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.

Choosing to Embrace Our Light

The light and the dark, or in other words, Love and Fear, are familiar terms that people often use to describe the clash or synthesis of two opposing forces. The radiant energy of the manifest reality and the cosmos at large flows around, through and with us in all ways during our physical experience as humans. When we shed our bodies, we return to this cosmic force, the energy that creates, and connects each Soul to the God/dess. During our earth experience, we are sensitive to the energy that moves around through and with us, each and every day. We may choose to ignore or honor this energy during each choice we make. The Law of Free Will allows us all to be choosing every day, through out the course of our present lives, will I create a synthesis of energy and self? Will I allow the common tide of emotion or energy around me to dictate the ways in which I live, love, or express my inner gifts?

Light workers carry a bountiful supply of enthusiasm, Joy, Love and light to share and shine at the world. Yet there will be countless times in which the two opposing energies, of fear and Love will swirl about each individual and ‘test’ their resolve to choose in their own, and the planets highest good. A Light worker is often highly sensitive to the emotions of others, and may spend a majority of their time seeking to please, placate, or make happy those around them, in an effort to have less intensity or anger directed their way. Yet, if that same Light worker devotes time and energy to honoring the strengths they carry for radiating joy, the people they attract into their lives, the opportunities for fulfilling love-based work, and self empowerment, multiply. A common misconception for many Light workers is to believe that through a sacrifice of selfhood, the world around them, becomes happier. This is the opposite energy that they incarnated to share. By being empowered with courage to teach others that they too deserve a joyful and fulfilling life, a Light worker carries the most alchemical magic, by first allowing themselves to be joyful. The most powerful tool I have learned in this life, for diverting fear based energy, is to truly ‘see’ that criticism,anger and fear are often an expression of another persons longing to be self confident, self loving, and self empowered to follow their dreams, and rediscover a vision they once carried for a new way of life. It can be painful and hard to witness and experience the rage, fear or frustrations of others on a mass scale,yet, by finding tools for remaining centered in our own personal power, we are able to see that just as there appears to be an unending cycle of fear, there is an infinite supply of Divine Love.IMG_1775

In nature, the waves of resonance from all living things, caress, infuse and saturate the magnetic,energetic, personal resonance of those who venture into the wild places, the green and colorful, pure water, fresh air spaces, this earth is so resplendent with. Yet the majority of the planet no longer sleeps beneath trees and stars, but in houses, and we often work, live, and run errands in buildings, across concrete, and travel in cars, buses and trains. Inside each place we are able to tune into the collective unconscious, the energy of those that surround us on a near and universal scale. We may find moments in nature, to saturate and recharge, where choices in life become more clear, just as our personal rhythms do, aligning with the earth’s natural energy. As a predominantly clairvoyant and sensitive person, I often ‘see’ energy like waves of color and light moving through or around a person’s experience. People can choose to allow the collective energy to either drain their personal essence of vital life force, or to attune themselves with a energizing, revitalizing empowering essence. The choices that we make during times in which we do not feel saturated and supported by light and love, are the ones that ‘temper,’ refine, and ultimately test the strength of our spirit. The moments when we are most afraid, and the ego-mind is shouting discouragement, and yet, we find that a glimmer of hope, or yearning for a deeper sense of joyful self, still manages to assert itself, and brings forth enough courage that we do choose to align with our Higher Self and Soul Path, are the choices that will often define the course of our lives.

The infinite supply is a network of light that extends through each human, all of nature, the cosmic reality and is inter-dimensional. We simply choose to be connected to our own light and the fear based feelings begin to dissipate through our powerful Will. Sometimes this willpower diffuses the lower vibrations most effectively by ‘remembering’ on a Soul level, that we are each strong, capable, and worthy of Love. A prayer that I have practiced in variations of, for moments in life in which I am asked to choose between continuing forward on a path of joy, or one of self repression is:

“Dear God/ess, please help me to connect with the ways in which I am strong, capable, and worthy of experiencing Divine Love and Joy in this life. Please send the Archangel Micheal to cut the chords of fear I have attached to me at this time, so that it is with a sense of personal and cosmic freedom that I choose the course of my life in this moment. I ask that Archangel Jophiel assist me in seeing the beauty that I carry, and its reflection in the many beautiful people and places on this planet. Please send the fairy kingdom to help me navigate my path on the physical reality, so that I connect with the people, places, the Soul Group with whom I can bring and share the most light, while feeling supported on my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”

May we each, in our capacity as Light workers, choose this day, and all days in our collective future, to honor the Divine Love we are capable of carrying, broadcasting, and amplifying in all ways.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Advanced Shielding through Expanding Awareness Video

Thank you for joining me for a discussion and practise of etheric alignment and shielding technique through visualization and prayer.

“I like to think of the ultimate in alchemical magic to be a person’s choice to change their life and infuse the areas that have caused them pain, or the lessons they are ready to release and to change the energy within themselves into ‘gold’. By changing our own internal vibration, the external world begins to vibrate and manifest at an equal rate. Then new opportunities, change and growth occurs. When looking at the internal energies of people around me who make a conscious choice to change their lives by beginning with their internal selves, my etheric eyes perceive this intention like liquid gold, or flowing honey, infusing their being and beginning to radiate outwards. When a person is vibrating in such a way, they also act like a beacon for those around them who are curious or yearning for self-transformation as well. When engaged in a transformational period, it is particularly important to maintain ‘healthy boundaries’ for during transformation we can feel extremely open and vulnerable.”

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.

Becoming Who We Are Right Now

Allot of people I’ve been interacting with have remarked about their changes in energy levels.  Changes to their physical energy levels, their ability to offer and sustain familiar patterns in relationship, and their desire or lack of desire to manifest and create new energy for interests on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane.  What I am gathering, from personal experience as well as these illuminating conversations, is that this is a year with an ‘opposites’ theme in some respects. Be patient with yourself and others, transformation is powerful, all encompassing, and challenging.

 

If you have lived many years in a pattern of sedentary, stillness, this year you may feel as though there are fireworks attached to your feet.  Suddenly all you can do is MOVE.  For this change I celebrate you!  It is a natural manifestation of all of the light you have gathered up until this point.  It is safe to move forward, to change and relocate and have a very different life all of a sudden.  To apply for a new job, get engaged, dye your hair a vibrant shade and dance down the streets, singing all of the way.  You are not losing your sanity, you are simply channelling another aspect of your beautiful self you have always fostered internally. Harness your impetus and enthusiasm for change, and cheer those around you that you are witnessing doing the same.  Your heart chakra is beaming golden, rainbow radiance, and this is a gift to the entire world as well as your inner Self.

If you, however, are an individual used to ‘achieving’, this will be a year where perhaps that impetus to exercise seven days a week, nurture everyone around you, and sleep five hours a night, isn’t really working anymore.  Your internal flame is still just as bright, but it is sending light into your own cells, transforming the expression of your essence in a new and unique way.  You are still a beautiful, talented, energy-rich being, but no, you cannot achieve as much in a day as in previous years as perhaps were accustomed to, and there can be physical repercussions if you attempt to force yourself to do so.  Respect your body and soul’s need for this gift of regeneration, and create space in an otherwise hectic schedule to just slow down and receive.  Receive the messages from you inner wisdom, your connection to the divine, and your loved ones.  Allow them to gift you with the bouquets of flowers and kindness you have been so very comfortable bestowing all of these year.  Being still, does not lesson your importance, as those around you who are even now bursting forth from their accustomed shells, can tell you.

It takes courage to try a new approach to your life, and courage is required to sit in stillness, just as it is required to go rocketing down another pathway.

This year is a transformational year.  It is important to remember that transformation requires ALLOT of energy.  To rebuild the self on any level, to birth a new dream, create a new job, project, loving relationship or lifestyle, the self is drawing from the internal flame, that divine light that is always accessible, and making the light manifest in this world.  We are all manifesting on a cellular, soul and emotional level.  Our hearts are shedding lifetimes worth of debris.  The emotional roller coaster that accompanies this release can be exhausting or exhilarating.  Either response it the natural response for our individual bodies and life journey’s at this time.

A focus that can help to bring each individual back to a place of balance, amidst the every changing year, is to remember self kindness, acceptance and respect.

Respect that your process is unique and your own.  Be kind as the patterns that are familiar are stripped away, and feed yourself loving words.  A mantra I find useful is “I accept where I am on my journey.  I trust that I am evolving at the safest speed for me.  I accept Angelic support and aid at this time.  I am radiant with light.”

 

Your higher self is using this brilliant opportunity, this transformational year, to flow more freely into your every day life. Honor the inclinations you are having whether they are for extra sleep or a sky diving adventure, restorative yoga or taking up downhill mountain biking.  Your instincts and ideas are communications from your Angels and Higher self.   Embrace these changes and celebrate what a magnificent being you truly are!

 

With respect and light,

Kamia
