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,

Kamia

Sign Posts for Life Purpose

Sign posts for life purpose can occur for many of us in times of heightened awareness. A memory that is as vivid as the present perhaps, such as the way one felt as a child, youth, teenager or young adult. It could be a moment in which a song left a deep emotional response, or someone told us something that changed the way we saw the world, through the years. We all must pass through trials on the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical level that test our commitment to self acceptance, Love and soul truths, yet during these times, we are often offered ‘sign posts’ to remember that we have choices in the paths we each follow and direct the course of our lives.img_2938

For example, we may remember a time in which we were very aware of an injustice or imbalance in the world as we experienced it. In those moments of heightened awareness and memory, we are viewing a ‘sign post’ of self that offers a choice regarding what we contribute to the world and the future generations individual or collective experience. Many people will seek to reject their understanding of self at some point in their lives. This can be a survival technique, when outside influences overwhelm the senses, or when one is in a situation in which one feels powerless. Many highly sensitive souls will yearn for the light connections they experienced before they entered a physical body, and feel as though their life walk is very lonely or separated from the source during transformational times in childhood,adolescence or adulthood. Yet, in attuning to the particular sensitivities we all carry, we become aware that we can be both physically present and spiritual expansive, a radiant conduit of light and Divine Source that effects our personal and collective experiences.

When I was a child and began elementary school, I was often overwhelmed by the ‘noise’ of so many people in close proximity to myself energetically. The thoughts, feelings and emotions being emitted in a social setting, often felt as though they were drowning out my own perception of personal identity and feeling, as a highly sensitive and clairvoyant child. I certainly felt that being so highly sensitive was something I wished to escape instead of embrace. I remember being in grade one and wishing desperately that the class had some ‘quiet time’ each day, so that I could sort out my feelings and boundaries. Yet all these decades later, I have the extreme privilege of teaching children yoga in classrooms of elementary schools. I get to help create a peaceful half hour for each child to learn, integrate, interpret and balance their own being. What a gift, that all of those years ago, I felt so strongly as a child myself, that I have helped to manifest a reality that nourishes my past memory and future generations self awareness.

We experience sometimes joy, and other times pain, during the growth or challenging scenarios that remind us of our extreme sensitivity. Yet, when we emerge, having chosen to accept our own beauty and gifts, just as they are, we are offered the experience of the blissful nature of our Light and Soul, radiant and pure. Through the trials that test or challenge us, I ask all to remember, we are connected in many ways, we are each never alone on the spiritual level of being, and we all, have so much power for bringing compassion, peace and divine Love into this world.

A prayer that can be helpful in attuning to ones own light is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of creation, please help me to accept the ways that I am truly sensitive, so that I may foster the strength this sensitivity gives me for bringing about positive change in my life and the world at large. Please send me clear messages and signs that I can easily recognizes with my sensitivity, that help me to trust I am working in accordance with my Soul Purpose, or able to change course to connect more deeply with what is blissful. Thank you Amen, Om and Aho.”

There are times in life in which many of us will feel as if we are drifting without a fixed course, wondering if we are passengers or captains of our own ship. Yet, as we attune to the ways in which we are personally sensitive and receptive to the Divine Source, and our intuitive, psychic sense of knowing, we are able to discern that even during times in which we are drifting, there are several ‘sign posts’ along the way that offer guidance towards our life purpose. The spiritual realm is rich with messages that come forward to each of us in a number of ways.

We may be clairsentient, and responsive with our physical bodies through reactions to a landscape, person, societal or cultural phenomena. Or we may be clairaudiant, and have a heightened awareness of sound, or words, that stay with us, or rise to the surface of our consciousness. We have have spontaneous ideas, creative problem solving or dreams that appear in our minds, encouraging us to follow a new path in alignment with our gift of claircognition. Allowing a job path or relationship to develop in which it is safe to foster these spontaneous messages, understanding and inspirations to be spoken or written about for the physical world to explore. We may be clairvoyant, in that the image of both past, present and future possibilities resurfaces during times in which we seek to alter our course in life, connecting more firmly with the direction that affords the sharing of gifts with humanity and the celebration of self acceptance.

In whatever way our ‘sign posts’ manifest, it is our personal responsibility to pay attention and have faith that we do, in fact ‘know’ on a deep instinctive level what our Soul  and Life Purpose on this planet truly is.

Thank you for shining,

with light,

Kamia

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.

img_0582

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,

What About the 6th Sense?

When a person asks a small child, how big they are, many children will stretch their arms out as far as they can, and with straining effort that their little chubby arms cannot encapsulate, say “SOOOOOO big.” The child is telling the truth. Their spirit, although patiently navigating, first steps, tumbles and the giant challenge of adult sized stairs, is infinitely larger than their human body. Their bright innocent light, is still aware at this stage of childhood, that ‘they’ stretch outwards, upwards, and in each direction, miles from their physical body. Their perception of space, the being of human and also this infinite being, is existing in a cooperative manner that allows for intuition and awareness of people they interact with, the environment and elements, and of their myriad array of helpers on the etheric plane; fairies, angels, ascended masters, god/dess, earth spirits and guides.

In the beginning, when a bright and light resonating soul comes into the world in the tiny infant body they will inhabit for this lifespan, there is the first realization of a new perception of space. Sometimes this can bring out allot of tears. In my case, my parents claim I came out into the world, looked around, at them and my siblings, had some breast milk and promptly went to sleep. On days where I feel several lifetimes old, I think back to this moment and ruefully laugh, for even with several lifetimes of birthing and living and dying, one of the lessons I return to with the occasional outburst of frustration and fist shaking at the sky, is for inhabiting, in the physical body, a small space.

When does this perception of space become confining or ‘smaller’? I think each person may have a different time. A trauma, or a hurt, where they felt small all of a sudden, and the giant reach of their spirit felt knocked off of center. For myself, as I sat in my grade one desk, clutching rainbow colored pencils, my first negative interaction with space occurred when the teacher wrote on the board and said “There are 5 senses.” In my head, I said, “What about the 6th sense?” As an intuitive and empathetic child, looking around at my class mates, many bright eyes and big spirited, I waited to see who would be brave enough to ask the question. There was silence. I chewed on my pencil and waited until lunch to go home, and ask my mom why the teacher wasn’t talking about the 6th sense, by far my favorite sense, the one I relieved upon more than any other to navigate life. I do not remember her response, but it was something along the lines of “Well, maybe the teacher wasn’t told there is one?”

Last week I had a wonderful and spontaneous conversation with a woman about the spirit realm, and I thanked her for her ‘openness’. She replied, “Yes, it is true, isn’t it? People will speak to the level they are spoken to?” And I agreed, and then smiled. This blogpost is in honor of her words.

Over the last year, as I have shared these blogposts, the musings of my 6th sense, I have witnessed an incredible transformation in the way I have interacted with many people in my life, and many beautiful new people I am encountering (for the first time in this life, but ‘again’ from others.) I spend my favorite time and energy ‘speaking’ with this writing of ‘more’, and in celebrating how ‘big’ we all are. It is my apology and reconciliation for the six year olds from my younger self, who got told they were small. It is my apology and reconciliation to the world at large and the adults that are all around me, who have forgotten, and been told that they are small.

I ask my five year old daughter, how big are you, and she gets a twinkle in her eye and shouts back “HUGE!” and then she flexes her chubby arms at me. I hope to have her say the same thing for all the years of her life. I know that their will be times where she may not. I see friends and light workers, who have days where their shoulders curl, and they heads droop and they speak in small voices, and they do not feel the enormity of their spirits, and support of their team of angelic realm helpers. And that is okay, because I have days where I feel small for a few minutes too. However, those days have gotten fewer and farther between, and I want to share this feeling, this expansive, knowledge that we are ‘more’ and ‘big’ and ‘beautiful’ in our enormous energy rich selves.

Here is my prayer for myself, for my child, for each child coming into the world, and for the adults who were once children and told or shown that they did not have light wings,

“I ask that the angels come into this room to the space that any reading these words is inhabiting. I pray that the resonant energy of the Christ Consciousness, and the Archangels, as messengers, and light rays of the Creator/God/dess source of creation, be with us each in this moment, and in the way that we are each most receptive to messages, whether through thought, feeling, sound, or image. Help us to receive a greater awareness of our Higher Selves and aura’s. Please bring these messages all day long. Please remind us that we can reach out with these energy selves, to feel rain falling a mile away, to sense people as they come towards us, or move away from us. Please help this ‘greater awareness’ to be gentle, and to show us also the incredible tools we have for deflecting and shrugging away all lower energies. Help us to clean the space that we inhabit, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. And please help us all, to feel energized by this reminder of greater self, empowered to act in our daily lives, with this knowing. Thank you angels, ascended masters, fairies, spirit guides and earth helpers. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

With light, and respect,
may you be BIG today,
Kamia
