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
