Dream States and the Edge of Consciousness

As with all sentient beings, we act as a type of ‘filter’ for divine source.  We see and reflect, refract and transmutes the divine source, the fabric of the manifest universe, that is birthed into matter, and light, and wisdom and collective unconscious.  We can purify the filters over the course of a thousand lifetimes, to ‘see’ or perceive in incredible ways.  We may also incarnate and have the ability to ‘see’ through multiple levels of reality after carrying light in a specific way from only a few lifetimes.  

Each person is capable of offering their particular aspect of light expansion, in their own unique way.  One personas beauty does not cancel out the beauty of another persons entirely different and still valuable, gifts. Indeed, some of the very opposite in perception can weave together beautifully to create a framework, or tapestry of thought and possibility that deeply benefits the world at large.  Physically minded or spiritually minded, emotionally sensitive, or mentally focused, together each can offer explanations that deepen another individuals connection to their life path by helping to activate cultural or spiritual Memory for a more empowered sense of belonging and compassion.

We all have ways that we ultimately allow for a relaxation of the mind, to create space for heightened sensitivities on the spiritual realm. When I focus my clairvoyance, to ‘look’ and to ‘see’ when someone has asked me for guidance, it is a relaxation of the mind not a huge effortful push.  Like a person who is drifting off into a renewing slumber, we can relax into the navigation of different levels of consciousness.  Relaxation does not mean the same thing for every individual.  Relaxation for one might only happen when intense physical activity has occurred.  In the expression of adrenalin, they open up a space within the consciousness mind to feel ‘safe’ directly afterwards or during, because truly being relaxed for that person might actually equate to physical strength  as indications of safety.  Another may find a pathway through to their akashic record or wisdom through deep mediation in solitude.  In a space with no other humans, they commune with nature, and in this manner can ‘relax’ into opening up their inherent sensitivities such as clairaudience or clairsentience. 

 For those whom are seeking to begin a new cycle of connecting with their particular gifts, I offer the following as gentle suggestions to be explored. *Encouraging each reader to allow their instinctive understanding of their most powerful pathways of self to be their guides, your way may already be more effective for you than the below suggestions.*

1.) Identify when one is truly relaxed.  Is it a relaxation of the physical body that we equate with sensitivity, or is it a pathway that we honour or ignore in another aspect of being?  When do we notice/connect that the reception of our 6th sense was heightened.  For example, when travelling in other countries, because I am not often distracted by my native language, I am more relaxed in ‘listening’ with all of my senses to understand what the emotional, mental or physical climate of my direct surroundings are.  In many ways I would not have equated travelling alone through countries of vast cultural differences as relaxing, and yet with self analysis I can acknowledge that this is so.

2.) Allow for the possibility of this same ‘relaxation’ into conscious expanded reception with clear energy boundaries.  Many people with heightened sensitivities are afraid that in being ‘open’ they will attract harmful and fearful experiences.  This is a valid fear.  A relatable example of this is when we choose to close a door at our physical house, so that we can safely clean, cook and fulfill responsible action.  We do so to indicate to the world at large that they are not welcome without invitation.  For anyone opening gently their psychic perceptions, it is incredibly important to do so in manner that is ‘safe’ with energy boundaries in place.  For further reading on how to create healthful boundaries visit blogpost: Boundaries and Personal Power

3.) Practice.  Practice with recording ones perceptions, practice compassion for the self when it feels unfamiliar to be that trusting of intuitive information.  Practice encouraging those in our lives to trust themselves and their instincts, to learn hard or soft lessons, to take chances in verbally or artistically expressing their heightened natural perceptions.  We all have our own unique path to dance, or climb or fight or meditate through.  We get to be uniquely beautiful in all the stages.

4.) Honestly review what amount of time during ones day or week feels as though it has honoured the perceptions one carries.  Do we allow ourselves to be relaxed and receiving of divine source and guidance every day?  Once a week? Only in times of tragedy?  How does that allotment of ‘time’ or reception sit with us and the goals we hold for a compassionate view of ourselves and our world?  Again there is no ‘right’ time allotment. Some people will live a very fulfilling life having experienced one divinely connected moment for their entire incarnation.  Others will seek expanded levels of consciousness daily.  We get to determine what feels ‘right’ for us in this lifetime, and through the Law of Free Will, we get to change that pattern if after a span of months or years or generations, we are ready for something else.

5.) Keep a sense of humour. Without humour I would never have truly accepted my gifts.  I can laugh at myself and the world.  I can laugh with delight, with outrage with sorrow and with joy.  The movement of the diaphragm during laughter helps to stimulate the third chakra, the power centre at the navel.  Be powerful, clear the energy in the room, space, family or workplace.  Spiritual perceptions can be incredibly serious, but they can also have the beauty of lightheartedness as we explore and practice.

A prayer that I have found useful for those who notice the vibrational shift when affirming/praying aloud is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for this life.  Help me to see myself and my evolution as a tool that amplifies the compassionate experience and unfolding in connection to the world at large, of our greater collective unconscious.  Thank you for helping me to expand my energy field to feel more rooted to this planet, so that as I open etherically, I do so with balance through my feet and being on this wondrous planet.  Please help me to find ways to express this unfolding, in service to mass consciousness and to the earth, the planet, the animals, other people, my family and community and my own individual experience.  Please help me to shield from lower vibrations that distract from Divine Love, and to feel connected {every day, once a month, during the year} as is most healthful for me at this time. Thank you for this assistance on every level, Amen, Om and Aho.”

At the edges of our conscious mind we are each consistently receiving waves of energy.  Some are lower frequency and may have fear associated with them.  Some are bright and light and beautiful and help us to see the potential for mankind on this planet.  Like radio stations we tune into, we are each a filter for the energy that pervades the manifest universe.  What are the ways we are all filtering and receiving and sharing for this new shift of time and purpose?  What aspects of the Divine do we openly allow to infuse our energy body and beam out towards the world at large?

This year, may we each make conscious choices about the ways we are conduits of Light,

With respect and appreciation for all those who are shining,

Nourishment for the Soul

Daily living is filled with distractions, challenges, moments of delight and unexpected, sometimes glorious soul deep connections and relationships. As we navigate our way through our daily lives, finding or creating the space to ground into the moment, their is a myriad array of light beings, angelic assistance, and human’s speaking their own inner truth, to encourage us all to keep exploring.  Exploring our awareness and experiences of God/dess, our own inner knowing, and the gifts that we each carry to contribute to the expansive and universal essence of Divine Love.

What follows are excerpts from the book, or rather a ‘manual for expansion’ Soul Evolution that I hope will add blessings to your day.

“EGO: “I am not special.  I am just like, or even less talented and worthy than everyone else.  I should be unhappy because I haven’t ever been told, shown or convinced I am worthy of love.”

Higher Self: “My unique light shines across time and space.  I am an infinite being and connected to all that is light and Love in the universe.  Because I exist, I am worthy of Love. I perceive this love reflected in nature, other humans, and myself, every day.”

 Each individual will have their own particular ego based fears and challenges to make peace with.  I have new fears and challenges daily, and I find that if I listen to them calmly and reformulate an affirmation in the positive context, I am no longer controlled or held back by my ego.  Healthy ways to explore and encourage creating personal affirmations and healing mantras are to write and post the positive version in a place such as on the bathroom mirror where they can be seen and read aloud daily.  At first there might be the desire, brought on by the ego, to scoff or laugh at the positive affirmations, but the Higher Self has infinite patience, and through the repetition of positive thoughts, the Higher Self will aways prevail over the ego. Truly, your inner brilliance has patience that spans eons, and the ego is confined to the here and now.  Your inner brilliance is more powerful, always.  Persevere in committing to the belief that you are lovable, worthy, brilliant ,and a manifestation of Love/God.” 

“Sometimes when I have a past life memory, dream or spontaneous realization during an interaction with another human, I find that reminding myself to see the humor in the cosmic forces and choices that brought me into a circle of interaction with a particular soul for another round, is the best ‘medicine’.  For though gaining valuable knowledge surrounding why it is, certain lessons in life with another person seem to surface, the best healing tool I have learned for clearing karmic debris is first to recognize a past soul relationship, thank my higher self for the opportunity to grow and heal through making different choices in this life, and remaining in the light, as well as by maintaining a healthy sense of humor when the situation is particularly challenging.”

“Much of what the media suggests in western society, is that death and the spirit world are to be feared.  Yet in many indigenous cultures, death is perceived rather like a doorway into another realm of existence, and that ‘the other side’ is filled with light.

Though each person must seek the answer to their own beliefs throughout their lifetimes, in this chapter I will explore the concept and belief that death is like a bridge, where a Soul transcends the physical plane and rejoins the myriad network of light that is connected throughout the cosmos.

The beauty of this light expansion is that though a Soul will reunite itself with a greater knowing of its own divine brilliance, it will also retain its connections of Love that it made on the planet, and a resonance of its experience during its past lifetimes.  The Akashic Records, those etheric records that exist of all that has been, are a compilation of the each individual Souls evolution, as well as the knowledge that the souls of gathered through out their lifetimes and experiences.

Many people fear that as their loved ones depart from this world, they are never to be in existence again.  Yet even science will agree that matter neither disappears nor appears, it simply changes form, and in this way, the light that makes up the essence of a human, continues beyond death, indeed it expands and multiplies and resonates through the universe shining towards those that infused it with Love during their earth-walk.”

“What are the things, words, motions, sounds, or colors you would express to the world if you felt absolutely supported and loved?  These are the important questions to ask oneself, especially when yearning to interact with a soulmate relationship.  For some people, beginning to do those things, say those words, make those healthful changes, are enough of a beacon to send out to the universe, that they then attract a soulmate relationship.  For as you allow your light to shine, you empower your soulmate to do the same. It takes two people, who are committing to themselves, and their path, to form a soulmate union, and when an individual begins to invest in themselves, to speak their personal truth and share their gifts, somewhere, out in the world, their soulmate is supported in beginning to do the same.

with Light and appreciation for each of you,

Kamia
