Nature and Faith

Faith can manifest in many ways. It can be a dedication to a belief, a hope, or a prayer. It can be a stubborn refusal to give up on ones dreams. Faith can be the ‘taken for granted,’ trust that such things as the sun rising, and the season’s changing, will occur, no matter what the personal challenges we are facing at any given time. Faith is a vital ingredient in all of our endeavors, to grow, to expand our consciousness, and ultimately, to manifest a reality on the planet that we feel proud of on a cosmic level. A reality that provides for generations of future children, animals, plant life, and pure water.

When I feel my Faith challenged, I like to go outside. To a place in nature that appeals in that particular moment in time, whether it be seascape, mountain, forest, river, lake, hillside, pasture or garden. Once I am standing or sitting on the earth, without the constraint of cement or floor beneath my feet, I am better able to regain the flutters of inspiration, comfort or peace, that are needed to again connect with Faith. As soon as we begin to focus our awareness in a manner that is seeking a connection with the Divine, our Higher Self, or our Soul purpose, we begin to send out etheric chords of light that vibrate at an extremely pure rate. The vibration begins to effect all of the thought patterns, emotional challenges, the physical health of our bodies, and the way we feel connected or disconnected to the planet.

A prayerful thought, a moment of meditation, effects each level of our personal and communal experience. The thoughts that become barriers, are those that diminish our self esteem, and our Faith, and are often a result of our Ego and fear. To overcome such thoughts, consider taking off ones shoes, curling toes and fingers into the ground, and noticing the way plants courageously grow, even if only for a single season, ever upwards, to share their intrinsic beauty, with the world. Watch the way animals move, the way they navigate a largely human landscape, seeking out the wild places, and in domestic cases, sharing unconditional love each and every day. On days where I feel tired or sad, I watch my dog leap through tall grass, or the way the tree branches seem to greet the wind with fondness. I listen to the natural world, and in this listening, I am able to reconnect with Faith for myself, the planet, and her people.

For a connection to the Divine feminine aspects, one of the ascended masters that offers constant companionship to anyone seeking to renew their Faith is White Buffalo Calf Woman. For a renewal of the Divine masculine, the ascended master Jesus offers assistance. Both carry gentle energy, of renewal and compassion, for a changeable earth, an evolving humanity, and a respect for all living beings, the earth included.

A mantra/prayer I have found useful in connecting with their particular light resonance is as follows:

“Dear God/dess of creation, please help me to feel the light within this earth, the light within myself, and the pathways on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual planes that I can travel to feel more grounded in my true self. Please send me assistance through the energy gifts of Jesus, to be patient with myself, as I learn each new tool for this growth. Please send me the energy assistance of White Buffalo Calf Woman, so that my relationship with myself, this earth, and all those I encounter, is based on respect and sacred awareness for the gifts of this life. Thank you. Amen, Aho, and OM.”

with light and respect,

May your Faith illuminate the path you have chosen,

Earth Reiki and Barefoot Energy Medicine

IMG_1634

I’ve never had softer feet. They’ve been buffed and massaged to perfection. The hands that massaged them were not actual hands, but the roots, smooth rocks, and the undulations of the dirt trail that winds through the trees behind my house. I’ve been jogging barefoot for the last few months. Each step, landing on the balls of my feet, small steps with intention. Steps without an aim of ‘getting somewhere fast’, but with an intention of connection to the earth and a reactivation of energy exchange between my Self and the earth that is supporting me.

During the spring months, I began to notice a reoccurring theme in my Angel Readings for others. Each time I worked with Archangel Raphael and the fairy kingdom, I ‘saw’ an image of bare feet, pressing into the earth, and the energy exchange of soft gold light for the release of emotions and lower energies. I would like to share this visualization:

Go outside and find a patch of earth that calls to you. People with be drawn to different features, and they can trust that the surface of soft sand, or smooth rock, or moss and damp earth, are just the right combination of element and energy for themselves. Take off your shoes (and socks) and place your bare feet onto the ground. Gently rock forward and back, slight rocking from one foot to the next. This can be accomplished with the assistance of a chair, or standing straight up, or crouched over, hugging your knees. The fun part is to allow instinctually, nature and the inner movements of your body to assert what is needed most.

When you feel ready, close your eyes gently and breathe deeply. Allow the breathing to begin to loosen your muscles and relax you mind. This simple relaxation could be enough for the first few times. You may feel encouraged to open your eyes or continue in meditation, connecting with the sounds, smells, feeling and support of this natural environment you have grounded into.

If you feel guided, consider this visualization:  Gold light is circulating through your body. It flows smoothly, unless there is a place that is retaining a negative emotion, trauma, frustration or other ‘block’. It wants to flow smoothly through your limbs, your cells and each of your chakra’s. The greatest gift of this earth, is that beneath our feet is a similar flow of light. The earth offers itself to help us balance and re-connect the flow of energy. Through our bare feet, there is fresh renewing gold light waiting to enter our bodies, and the earth offers us the gift of release. Allow the soft light to flow in a circular manner. Through the tips of each toe, and the base of the heel, up into the body, revitalizing and flushing away blocks. This light travels to the crown of our heads, and back down, to exit through the center of the foot, like a circular fountain of honey gold light. Cradling our feet, at the ankle, is the healing Archangel Raphael. He smiles and welcomes us to this healing experience. These words, or our own personal variation, can assist us in receiving assistance:

“Please God/dess, send me the assistance of Archangel Raphael to help me ground into the earth, to connect my own personal energy with the rhythms and flow of this beautiful earth, and to release the energy that I am ready to realize, and accept the healing power of new vital energy. I allow that the energy I release will be transformed, just as seeds, and plants are transformed. I ask that all trauma I am carrying, be transformed in this manner, and that the energy that replaces it heals through each cell of this body, mind, heart and spirit. Thank you, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

Simultaneously the energy of Jesus offers the gentle reassurance of white light circling the individual, and gentle hands atop, or resting just slightly above our shoulders. His light is the softest of hues, very protective, yet incredibly respectful and gentle of each of our individual comfort levels and boundaries. He stands a step behind us, whether we sit, stand or crouch and his face is filled with compassion and faith. he knows that the burdens you are ready to release can bring on a cleansing through tears. Jesus understands that there are aspects to the world that bring about frustration, disappointment and deep hurt. He offers his cloak of light as you process that which the earth and Archangel Raphael are aiding in healing and transforming. Jesus sends unconditional love and aids in the illumination of this light though the top of the head, the crown chakra. Words that can assist with this are:

“Please God/dess, thank you for sending me the loving support and healing light of Jesus. I accept the comforting light he sends, and the unconditional Love to transform the energy I carry in my Crown Chakra, and awareness. I am worthy of this light and love. The energy of Jesus assist me in this faith that I am worthy of Love. Thank You, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

As the body assimilates these gifts and changes, it is connected to the greater body of the earth itself. In this manner, the energy is given a globe, a matrix of light to integrate changes, transformation and healing. The Earth has a myriad array of light intersections within and atop her. The body of each individual is a pinnacle of light atop, that when ‘connected’ is magnified and balanced. This earth loves each human. We have made choices as a whole that have not always benefited her, yet still, she reaches up, to welcome our toes, to carry and cradle us through each of her steps. WIth a moment or an evening, or a daily practice, of connecting, we are all offered gifts of healing and greater awareness as caretakers of this light matrix and Earth.

We are all beautiful, growing, healing, changing and transforming extensions of this earth.

With light, and may there be flowers between your toes,

Kamia
