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,

Identifying Life Purpose

Many children have a clear understanding, before they begin to adapt themselves into roles they perceive as ‘useful’ or ‘respected’ as to what their Life Purpose is on a soul level. They will have an instinctive pull towards a way of being, an expression of their own unique self that when manifesting in either an attitude of compassion, kindness, enthusiasm, or desire to create change, could guide them towards relationships or professions that honor that innate impetus. As adults, many people seek to understand and reunite with their core self, their inner wisdom that ‘understands’ what their Life Purpose in this present incarnation is. Some ways of seeking can be found through meditation, prayer, or alone time in nature. Other ways may be through fostering relationships that encourage a vital sense of life, connections to the world and others, and offer opportunities for an expanded sense of personal freedom and empowerment.

I have long been intrigued by different cultures perception of adulthood. The varying ceremonies, initiations or age markers of adulthood are as varied as the landscapes that bloom across our wondrous planet. There are many ways in the physical world to celebrate a shift from adolescence or childhood to a member of society as a contributing adult. In my perception, adulthood is not marked by a particular age number, but rather a shift in perception between ‘what can the world do for me?’ shifting into ‘what can I do for this world?’ Adulthood in my perception is a shift in consciousness that allows for a realignment with one’s Life Purpose on the particular Soul Path our present incarnation is offering.

 IMG_2980

To become an adult in this incarnation I had the realization, that what I was seeking in the external world, a desire to feel energetically accepted, and ‘allowed’ to express myself, was the gift I could offer others, and encourage in the world around me. I yearned to be accepted as a highly sensitive soul, yet it was my own self acceptance and the following acceptance of others, that brought about personal healing and peace. I decided I would love the aspects of myself that I sought others to accept, and through this self love, I would also love aspects of all those that I encountered that resonated at their personal Soul level, and present incarnation as gifts. I shifted from seeking an environment that would nurture my internal and etheric landscape, to actively encouraging others to allow their energy selves to be enriched, empowered, and blossoming. Through this transformation in personal consciousness, I suddenly felt that I was more clearly supported on the etheric level by my own team of spirit guides, angels, ascended masters helping me in this present incarnation, and connection to the Divine. I also found that the relationships I had yearned for in friendships, coworkers, and family all began to change in a manner that supported my self empowerment. My internal landscape of wanting a world that was spiritually attuned to co-creating peace, became a personal landscape in both the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane that is very rich with feelings of Divine Love.

My Life Purpose feels grounded in this incarnation as through sharing gifts with others, I am able to nurture and celebrate my own gifts. If you are seeking to connect with your Life Purpose on a soul deep level, in this present life, some of the ways of reconnected with the flame of self, the inner wisdom that is carrying this knowledge, is to have an honest conversation with yourself about what it is you are constantly seeking in this physical reality. Have you often reached for a book and wished for a story that taught about Divine love and healthy relationships? Perhaps your journey involves writing such a book. Have you been seeking a community that sustains you through environmental practice, community gardens, and natural food sharing? Perhaps your gifts are meant to be used to create such a group. Are you seeking to see children raised with consciousness and self love through healthy body awareness? Perhaps it is time for you to volunteer or lead children in a way that teaches them such things. Are you yearning for a job with security and a strong manager and boss? Perhaps it is time to consider what you would need to learn and begin to become such a boss or manager for others. Have you wanted friendships that encourage you to take chances to change things in your life for the better and introduce new spiritual or medicinal practice? Now could be the time where you take a course, teach a course, or start those conversations with loved ones. Are you looking for role models that are kind, strong, healthy and sober? This is your time to be a role model with a compassionate understanding of the struggles it takes to be an adult with those qualities.

Soul Purpose and Life Purpose are often related to assisting the world to evolve in a manner that encourages a connection between humanity based on Love, Kindness and Compassion. There are thousands of different actions, professions and relationships that can explore and celebrate these qualities in a way that resonates with joy, for each individuals life purpose and present incarnation. Through identifying the passion you have carried through this life walk, that which you have yearned for, and beginning to manifest it by taking action towards personally implementing these changes and qualities, we all graduate from adolescents beings, to adults and connected Souls.

A prayer that I have found useful and I offer as a tool for others is:

“Dear Divine God/dess, universal force of creation, please send me the light and assistance I need at this time to implement the changes I have been seeking in my life, as a gift for both myself and the world at large. Please send me the assistance and clear resonance of the Archangels and ascended masters whose clear blessings and messages aid me in personal empowerment so that I may assist others in learning to empower themselves. I ask that my Soul Purpose be a beacon of strength, courage, kindness and compassion in this world, and that through my understanding of my personal journey, I have the tools to encourage others on their journeys. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

May your self awareness, your individual light and your gifts to this world, shine forth. May you feel enlivened, impassioned, and joyful as you take the steps necessary to connect with and life, your Soul Path during this life.

with light and respect,

Kamia

Celebrating Highly Sensitive Children

As a child I often struggled to reconcile the world around me that was ‘socially acceptable’ with the vibrant, diverse, far more interesting spiritual and emotional climate I was able to ‘read’.  Most of the time, it was very confusing.  What people said with their words in comparison with what their spirits or emotional resonance said, did not often align. It took several years to effectively construct energetic shields to stop being overwhelmed by the opposing messages.

Many children who are being born at this time are extremely ‘awake’.  You can tell as they look at you from their large luminous eyes, that not only are they seeing the body and face you are wearing, but also the emotional, spiritual and mental climate you are carrying.

Each person has an aura that extends several meters beyond their bodies.  People are conditioned to curl their energetic bodies more closely around their physical bodies as a coping mechanism early on in life.  It makes interactions with others emotions and spirits less overwhelming.  Ideally, through fostering meditation, yoga or reverence for the divine in another way such as communion with nature, people are given an opportunity to spread their wings of light, so to speak, to expand and trust their inner knowing and clear their energy fields so that interacting with others becomes a celebration of mirrored resonance and a joyful experience of others gifts.

One of the ways to respect and foster a child’s ‘sixth sense‘ is to be honest with them.  All of the time.  If you as a parent have words that are resonating in the same way as your emotional and spiritual body, then the child knows that they can trust you.  This certainly can lead to uncomfortable conversations, because there are days in which being honest with oneself also requires time for grief, healing, releasing and transforming anger, and the days can seem packed with other tasks and responsibilities.  Yet processing and acknowledging emotions is one of the most valuable gifts of mentorship you can offer a highly sensitive child.  Their emotions are like tidal waves.  You will see them rush through and seem to consume them.

Attempting to remain calm, to visualize surrounding them with white light and praying that their guardian angels help them to release and transform the emotion is all valuable.  Teaching them to breath through the emotion, to hold them against you if they wish to be held and taking deep, belly filling breaths also enables their rhythms to return to a  calmer place.

Sensitive and ‘awake’ children feel very deeply, not only their own emotions, but also the emotional climate of those they have interacted with though out the day.   A large crowded room, or an upset person they walked past can all flood them with emotions and energy they want to process. If your highly sensitive child prefers alone time, do not fear that they will be antisocial.  Consider that as they develop healthy boundaries and shielding techniques, they will attract other peoples energies that do not overwhelm them. I was far more comfortable alone, and sometimes still am, until I became more grounded in developing healthy boundaries and shielding techniques.  To share a simple few, consider the space that you child sleeps in.  Flood it with sunlight, encourage them to find rocks, outside that they are drawn to and bring them inside.  Many children will respond to the grounding energy of stones, and naturally want to collect them.  I am grateful still to my father for carrying backpacks of rocks home for me to array in my room.

Listen to the cultures or countries they are most fascinated by, and consider an image or piece of clothing from that country, as some of their past lives share gifts they wish to communicate in this present one. Perhaps they have recently had a lifetime in Tibet and are drawn to singing bowls.  This is a valuable energy clearing tool for them, in a similar way that sweet grass or sage for smudging can be used for clearing.

Allow them to dictate the colors they wear each day.  They will often adorn themselves like a rainbow and have very distinct ideas about what they want to wear.  Color has resonance, it mirrors and supports healthy chakras as well as matching their auras.  They will use these colors in healthy ways for creating balanced boundaries. Notice their response to drinking pure water.  Many will be highly sensitive chlorine and need filtered water, or when having a bath, a handful of sea salt to clear their energy.

Above all, listen to what they say, and what they ask you.  If they are curious about angels, or talk to them all the time, encourage their sharing of their inner knowing.  They may interact with a world that does not as easily accept this form of dialogue when they are outside the house, but if they feel safe expressing their gifts with you, they will be encouraged to hold onto them instead of trying to block them and ‘fit in’.

Trust their instincts about people they do not trust, and instead of talking them out of their thoughts, explore and communicate ways in which they can navigate uncomfortable situations with peers. This is challenging, but vital.  As you develop their tools, you will clarify and strengthen your own.  Highly sensitive children often pick highly sensitive parents.  They inspire growth, healing, divine love and colorful existence. They bring joy, when they are not struggling to ‘fit in’.

These children ‘know’ there is a God, angels,  fairies and plant devas, and that the earth and environment are precious.  They are teachers of us all, and if we remind them daily, that they are loved, and trusted, they will flourish and change the world as we know it in incredible ways.

As a child I to talked to angels and fairies and the earth.  I had a few years during which I attempted not to, to feel as if I ‘belonged’. Those were sad years.  I converse with the angels, fairies, and the earth daily once more.  Their messages are uplifting, energizing and filled with love. When I interact with people I want to tell them they are beautiful, bright, and worthy of love, because most of the time, their angels are all shouting it, and I am encouraged to join the chorus. I am grateful now for my heightened sensitivities and hope to mentor my own child to trust her inner knowing and gifts.

Many highly sensitive people learn to block out their spiritual awareness at a young age as a coping and survival skill.  The inner knowing however, is their greatest tool and ultimate survival and coping mechanism, and it is important to encourage a connection, foster self awareness and trust and endeavor to support these gifts, as ultimately they are Soul gifts that the person has brought to the planet.

The following is a prayer with the assistance of Archangels Michael the angel of protection, Raphael the angel of healing, and Ariel who is the ‘lioness of god’ or the brilliant gold light that infuses and balances the third chakra and our personal place of power and assertiveness:

Dear God/dess, and higher self, please help me to align my being with its unique and brilliant gifts.  Please help me to trust my inner knowing, to set and maintain healthy boundaries that enable me to celebrate my gifts, and interact with others in a manner that encourages their own healthily boundaries and inner truth. Please send Archangel Micheal with his sword to cut any chords of fear or negative energy from my personal space and being (and from around my child).  Please send Archangel Raphael to bring healing to any areas in my life, past and present that taught me to ignore my inner knowing. Please help me to have faith in my ability to perceive divine love on all levels, both within myself and within those that I interact with, and send Archangel Ariel to help me to have the courage to speak my truth from a place of love and assertiveness. Thank you , amen, and Om”.

To all of the parents of such children, and the adults that were once these children themselves, the light within me, recognizes, honors and celebrates the light within all of you, Namaste.

with light

The Silence of Being

Silent Morning
Silent Morning

Today I have no voice.  No physical voice that is.  The universe and I have been circling my laptop, and now, with a few liters of lemon tea beside me, I can smile ruefully and acknowledge that my keyboard felt neglected, my spiritual expression in the last week has been lacking, and all points considered, a sore throat is a small price to pay when it affords an observance of ‘Silence’ for 24hours.

I have heard the sound of the wind in the leaves of trees, the buzzing of bees and the gentleness my daughter imparts to her dolls as she gives them voices and enacts her version of the world at large through their adventures.  I have spent two hours meditating, and re-written a list of ‘priorities’ for my life.  In the hustle and bustle of daily life, I find it easy to let some of the most important focuses in a balanced life, slide to the wayside, such as gratitude for one’s health, the continued health of those we love, and creating space for the Sacred and the Soul.

A vow of silence is an opportunity to reconnect with all of the words, thoughts and feelings that we experience internally, sometimes subconsciously.  All of these feelings and words spin in a whirlwind, waiting to be given a voice.  Perhaps they are dreams or desires for learning and growth that do not need a ‘voice’ so much as an internal acknowledgment followed by a physical world action.  A desire to return to artwork, can be a loud scream internally, that will turn to a shriek of glee when the first tube of paint is  opened or a box of clay is ordered.  Perhaps there is a desire to begin to support a cause one has long believed in, but never found the time or space to become involved in.  A poster board that proclaims freedom for others, an end to violence, or a preservation of nature.  All of the words within our spirits that are fueled by a desire for a more loving planet, these to can be ‘loud’ internally, and waiting impatiently to enter the physical plane through action.

In the Silence of Being, the voices of our Angels are welcomed, and heard.  In the quiet times, all of the images, the passions, the desire for change that begin to bubble to the surface, are also messages, support and loving guidance from one’s Angels.  Every person is capable of connecting with and hearing their angels.  The positive thoughts we have about ourselves, the ‘you can do it!” those are the messages from your angels that are waiting to stream through.  Take a moment or a day, for a commitment to self and silence, and allow the ‘true’ voice of your being to return to a place of balance.  What you want to talk about when you are finished that vow, will often amaze you.

One of my favorite quotes I heard laying silently in savasana in a yoga class, “In the Silence of your Being, there the Dance is.”  The yoga teacher spoke it in a soft voice and I return to it, on days like today, wondering how it has been so long since the last time I really honored my own internal ecstatic dance of being. My dance is one of Divine Love.

I find I want to remind all the people I interact with, or think of today, that I love them.  If each word is a struggle to speak past a raw throat, then I want the words to really mean something.

It was an honor to share life force and thought at this time with you,

may your day be filled with blessings,

Kamia

Blessings in Retreat

Image

I can remember the first time my mom told me ‘you are your own best friend’.  I was around four.  I was disappointed, it seemed like someone else would be more fun to play strawberry shortcake with. Over the years however, I have taken that advice to heart, for truly, as many wise people will say, the beliefs and attitude we carry about ourselves, are reflected in the relationships we invite into our lives, and the learning opportunities we create through them.

I have recently returned from a much need ‘retreat’.  An immersion in the natural world, and my own inner silence.  The lesson I am most grateful for, is the remembering of my ability to nourish my Self.  Much of day to day living is a challenge to remain centered in our inner truth.  Yoga, meditation, artwork, music, nature, dance, all are reminders of the infinite beauty and light we carry within, but if we do not allow ourselves the time, to truly connect internally, some of this beauty can feel out of reach.

Retreat is not about giving up responsibility, or no longer fighting for what we believe in.  In my heart and mind, retreat is about allowing that we must step forward as ‘our own best friends’ and acknowledge that we need a section of time to allow for inner healing, processing of buried emotions, and self kindness.

Even five minutes a day in ‘retreat’, a special outdoor bench, the bathtub, or a pool of sunlight on the floor, can be turned into a ‘sacred space’ through which, in a meditative state, we connect with our ‘inner knowing’.  The ego tells us ‘you can’t, you don’t, you don’t know how.” The inner knowing replies, “I am able, I am strong, I deserve love, I can do this.”

From the place of inner knowing, we are better able to differentiate between our responsibilities to ourselves, and the subsequents gifts and responsibilities we have in regards to others: family, friends, the world at large. When we nurture and nourish ourselves, we lead with a powerful example for those around us that they too deserve to find a place of peace within, and act, instead of re-act, accordingly.  In marriages, as one person grows, we give our partner’s an opportunity to grow.  We cannot grow for them, but we can encourage them on their own journey.  In parenting we are able, from a place of inner peace, to encourage our children to know and express their own unique gifts, needs, and truth.  As co-workers, from a place of inner knowing, the small ways in which the people around us express their own desire to reignite their inner flame, become more obvious, and less like criticism or ineptitude. On the grandest of scales, it is with a connection to our inner self, that we are abel to look around at the world that surrounds us, to feel gratitude for it’s goodness, to wish to shine light into the places that are filled with fear, and to celebrate the blessings of being incarnated as a human at this time.

Truthfully, as you are your own best friend, you open your receptive nature to connecting with your angels, your guides, your animal helpers, and the very soul of the earth around you.  In being ‘your own best friend’ you are creating an opportunity to allow the divine to reach through, send healing and energy to your heart and self, and to realize that you are supported by many etheric beings.

 

 

May your life afford an opportunity for ‘retreat’ whether for a week, a month, a day or even five minutes this afternoon,

With loving kindness,

Kamia
