Self Care in Times of Upheaval

There are times in life in which we each experience intense upheaval. A shifting of perception, experience or insight that occurs on one or many levels. During upheaval our experience may be fraught with pain, despair, joy, intuitive leaps, harmony, synchronicity or any and all other feeling. It can be through bearing witness to another’s journey or it can be a challenge that occurs on the physical level that connects to deep work in our emotional bodies. It can be a mental reconfiguration of beliefs, ideologies or faith that is like a lightening strike, and leaves us reconsidering our place and purpose in this world. On the spiritual level we are each capable of intuitive leaps of faith that transform our experience, our Soul Path, in one lifetime, accelerated far beyond the many centuries or thousands of previous lifetimes. Spiritual perception or enlightenment can manifest in different ways for every individual. We are each entitled to our personal unfolding. Yet, during upheaval, a re-configuring of that which has formerly made us feel secure, assured or safe in our prior experiences, we are each offered support and assistance from the Divine in a number of ways. The planet is home to millions of people, those who resonate and teach in so many diverse and powerful ways. We are offered the teachings and support, the service of this diverse world when we are willing to be open in our learning, our gathering of tools, and our expansion of self. I am deeply grateful for my additional sensory perception of the manifest world, and celebrate the wisdom gathered through interactions with Divine Source as Angels, Ascended Masters, the Fairy Kingdom, Spirit Guides and the Earth every day.

For those who find themselves in a cycle of upheaval, of re-examining that which they thought to be ‘true’ as new truth personally emerges, I offer some of the practices that have been of use in my life, with the preface, that I too, continue to learn and evolve and send out gratitude to all those who with a compassionate heart, are also evolving.

1.) Breathe into the Present. We are each multidimensional beings. We receive energy simultaneously from the present, the past and the manifesting futures. We are each, when we find ourselves in the centre of a massive transformation offered the simple gift of Breath work. Yoga, Thai Chi, and many other eastern philosophies that create union between body, mind, spirit and heart all emphasize the importance of Breath. The tool of awareness that draws life-force, prana, chi, shakti, into our cells and allows us to centre and ground into the present, to draw our awareness away from fear based thinking into the Here and Now. Whatever choices, movement or change we are experiencing, we can each spare the time and claim the sacred space to Breath 4 deep breaths, or 8, or 12 or 20. When the physiology of the body is offered this tool, we each can connect with a sense of Calm. In this calm, what are some of the things/feelings/learning that the self has Gratitude for in this moment? Gratitude can be for small and large aspects. Gratitude for the sun shining on ones face, or the chance to connect in a new way with loving the self?

2.) Draw a circle and bisect it with a cross shape, turning it into a wheel of self. In the four quadrants write:

Physical
Emotional
Mental
Spiritual

Looking at this drawing consider, how many hours of the day or how many days of the week, or how many years in my current life cycle do I spend living in/devoted to each of these quadrants? Do two of the four predominantly use up the time of focus and being? If so, what does this current upheaval/challenge/life cycle offer to teach me about exploring the other aspects of self for personal Balance or Transformation?
Each level of self is intricately connected to the other levels. If we, for example, are having a deeply physical experience, what does the emotional self seek to learn/express/clear? Some people may live the majority of there lives in only one aspect of the self, and yet through the connection to a loved one, or the world events at large, may find a time in life in which their beliefs, and personal perceptions are called into question/exploration affording a deeper human experience.

3.) Ask for the help that we each identify we need. From the above practice we may each see the ways in which we could benefit from guidance, further tools, and support. On the emotional level do we seek the support of friends and family through loving words? On the mental level do we seek the support and tool kits a therapist, psychologist or counsellor could offer? On the Spiritual level are we returning to, or discovering space in our lifetimes for a new form of Faith that supports us in this new self that is emerging? The light that is offered through many diverse spiritual practices can offer a deep Peace to those that are seeking light in a new and expanded way. Perhaps through books, psychic readings, or other energy healing modalities. On the Physical level have we met the basic needs of our body? Have we received guidance, diagnosis, second opinions or medication that help us to work through pain? Have we fed out bodies nourishing food, and received the sleep we need to make clear choices about asking for the help during our upheaval? Have we experienced the healing touch of massage, reflexology or a simple but powerful hug?

During the approaching year, or in any cycle of rebirth or upheaval, a prayer I will often use is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess. of creation, please send the aspects of light that are most in alignment with my cycle of growth at this time. Help me to receive compassion from the universe, and from those who are in my direct life path at this time. Help me to be patient as this new level of being unfolds, and to set healthy boundaries for myself regarding self healing and existence, in this evolving world. Please let the light of Shiva and Archangel Micheal clear away my fears of unworthiness surrounding health, on any level, and send the light of the Divine Mother to infuse every cell of my energy body and physical body with regenerative growth and powerful Love. Thank you for reminding me through messages, signs and angelic support, that I am capable of becoming the new me, and releasing with peace, all that which no longer serves my purpose. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Whether we are seeking connection to ourselves in a new or ancient way, may we do so with the knowledge that our Soul is radiant light, and we are each shining the way for others, whether consciously or unconsciously in this myriad connection of humans and light matrix.
Thank you for shining!

with light, compassion, and empathy for all of our struggles and miracles in growth,
Be Love

Choosing Love, Energy Nodes of Light

This morning as I awake, I feet the etheric realm wrapped closely around the physical reality. Like sage smoke in an abalone shell, spiraling around my awareness and expanding out into the mist that lays across the fields. The tangible presence of Angels, Ascended Masters, Spirit Helpers, Ancestors and the Fairy Kingdom feel close this morning, as if the veil between the conscious world and that which many are just beginning to perceive, has opened new doorways.

img_3048

As a predominantly Clairvoyant person, I ‘see’ these images, and figures, light traveling in synchronicity with the physical world, overlying space, like rainbows from a crystal, that dance across a wall, when sunlight shines through. We are all like the window crystals, capable of Light shining through us and I perceive such potential for beauty and compassion in the world, the potential for each individuals choice and action to manifest as an individual, but also as a part of the collective, a future that is based on expression of Divine Love. Yet, it would be untrue to not acknowledge the other choice, that each person and humanity has before them. The etheric and spiritual reality offers many gifts for Light expansion, yet there are other forces at play in the manifest universe, and these are choices based on fear and hatred.  Lower dimensions of reality play out scenarios of chaos and pain. Our present Earth and dimension, can be ripe with beauty, it can also have chaos and fear. People are given choices each and every day, to direct their energy, their focus, their values and faith in their own unique way. Many choose to direct their energy with Divine Love. Some choose to destroy with fear, and bring chaos.

When I feel myself spiraling towards a fear based thought, I give thanks for this beautiful earth as it contrasts with the realities in the lower dimensions, the suffering I have witnessed there in astral projection, and I remember the incredible privilege we are each carrying as souls incarnated at this time on the planet, with the Power of Free Will. We are able to chose, in every moment, how we will act, or react. Many souls on the planet have several thousand lifetimes to draw upon, for wisdom, and courage when faced with navigating waves of fear. In claiming our own gifts, we are able to see, that there are days and instances for balanced being, where our own balance effects the courage and balance of others, days where prayer and meditation helps to clear the etheric space around a group or an individual, and also days in which we gather the physical power we have, to offer a helping hand, a loving touch, or breaking bread with someone who is in need of sustenance.

For many years I travelled the world and witnessed the absolute beauty this planet has to offer. I witnessed and was blessed by the generosity of strangers, the spiritual power of many cultures, the light and love present in families of all sizes, ethnic backgrounds, and cultural diversities. What a wealth of grace this planet has to offer us. What an incredible journey we are offered in this life. And then one day I was ready to begin my own family, and to seek to share what knowledge I had gathered through writing, teaching, and parenting. I tell my daughter, “This world is full of people who make choices every day. They can choose to Love, to create and build, or they can choose to hate, to tear down and destroy. Make the choices you can live with, the ones that our great grandchildren can respect. Choose Love and be assertive in your voice when you have a choice to influence others.” She takes deep breathes, and puffs out her chest and says in her warriors voice “I choose Love!” Yet, as an adult I know the challenges of this choice. The ways in which we are asked to leave our comfort zone, to be noticed by others for having an opposing view, or an alternate perspective. When I published my book ‘Soul Evolution’  I went through an entire year of overcoming intense, sweat inducing, knees shaking, fearfulness. It isn’s always comfortable to shout and beam to the world “This is what I stand for!” Yet, as a reincarnated Soul, my purpose is to see with a far perspective, in each direction, through multiple levels of reality, and remind anyone who is listening, that we can Choose. Choose to be bold, brave, courageous, Love and light filled beings, who speak up in the face of fear or hatred. Who make Love a mantra, a way of life, and in each instance, choose to bring forth a balanced self who leads with example.

We cannot control another persons choices, yet we can be conscious of the individual Power we each hold as we navigate our own life experience and effect the experience of others. Will today be a day in which we direct our light to educate and empower? Will we speak the truth to our children of the choices they will make in the course of their lives, to be aware of both Love and Fear and their ultimate choice in alignment with one or the other? The basis of our life experience our work, our relationships, our collective unfolding, our environment, out cultural values, each come to a single choice in time and self where we are willing to examine the ways in which we are Loving ourselves, each other, the world.

The spiritual helpers who are surrounding us each this morning send forth this simple message to those of us in physical bodies: “In each circumstance we have a choice be conscious and choose Love. The little things, become the big things, and ultimately send an opposing wave of Light against the fear that is so readily broadcasted.”

A prayer for connecting with the Light beings assisting each of us at this time:

“Dear God/dess, source of creation and light, please help me to perceive the matrix of light of which I am an integral part. Please help me to connect with the Ascended Masters and Archangels, the nature spirits and the ancestors who wish to assist me most at this time, in my own connection to Wisdom, Grace and Divine Love. Please help me to identify the choices I make each day, and repeatedly, that assist this world on its evolution as a Compassionate being that houses us all. Please help me find the courage I need to speak, act and inspire others in manifesting our collective future through challenging times, so that I may continue to be a conduit of Divine Love and Light. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

When my clairvoyance is open and receiving, what I see are circles of light beings surrounding us and this planet. The earth anchors some of the ancestors who seek to remain as teachers, the Ascended Masters who are still so close after their own earth walks, the Angelic light as it radiates outwards in individual light streams and colors to be more readily accessible to individual souls seeking alignment, and I see the pathways of intersecting light that connect this current reality to alternate dimensions. In all this light, we, as humans stand as nodes of connected energy. Our physical selves capable of anchoring and beaming Divine Love, Compassion, Peace, and Joy.

Thank you for your choices,

with light,

Kamia

Choosing to Embrace Our Light

The light and the dark, or in other words, Love and Fear, are familiar terms that people often use to describe the clash or synthesis of two opposing forces. The radiant energy of the manifest reality and the cosmos at large flows around, through and with us in all ways during our physical experience as humans. When we shed our bodies, we return to this cosmic force, the energy that creates, and connects each Soul to the God/dess. During our earth experience, we are sensitive to the energy that moves around through and with us, each and every day. We may choose to ignore or honor this energy during each choice we make. The Law of Free Will allows us all to be choosing every day, through out the course of our present lives, will I create a synthesis of energy and self? Will I allow the common tide of emotion or energy around me to dictate the ways in which I live, love, or express my inner gifts?

Light workers carry a bountiful supply of enthusiasm, Joy, Love and light to share and shine at the world. Yet there will be countless times in which the two opposing energies, of fear and Love will swirl about each individual and ‘test’ their resolve to choose in their own, and the planets highest good. A Light worker is often highly sensitive to the emotions of others, and may spend a majority of their time seeking to please, placate, or make happy those around them, in an effort to have less intensity or anger directed their way. Yet, if that same Light worker devotes time and energy to honoring the strengths they carry for radiating joy, the people they attract into their lives, the opportunities for fulfilling love-based work, and self empowerment, multiply. A common misconception for many Light workers is to believe that through a sacrifice of selfhood, the world around them, becomes happier. This is the opposite energy that they incarnated to share. By being empowered with courage to teach others that they too deserve a joyful and fulfilling life, a Light worker carries the most alchemical magic, by first allowing themselves to be joyful. The most powerful tool I have learned in this life, for diverting fear based energy, is to truly ‘see’ that criticism,anger and fear are often an expression of another persons longing to be self confident, self loving, and self empowered to follow their dreams, and rediscover a vision they once carried for a new way of life. It can be painful and hard to witness and experience the rage, fear or frustrations of others on a mass scale,yet, by finding tools for remaining centered in our own personal power, we are able to see that just as there appears to be an unending cycle of fear, there is an infinite supply of Divine Love.IMG_1775

In nature, the waves of resonance from all living things, caress, infuse and saturate the magnetic,energetic, personal resonance of those who venture into the wild places, the green and colorful, pure water, fresh air spaces, this earth is so resplendent with. Yet the majority of the planet no longer sleeps beneath trees and stars, but in houses, and we often work, live, and run errands in buildings, across concrete, and travel in cars, buses and trains. Inside each place we are able to tune into the collective unconscious, the energy of those that surround us on a near and universal scale. We may find moments in nature, to saturate and recharge, where choices in life become more clear, just as our personal rhythms do, aligning with the earth’s natural energy. As a predominantly clairvoyant and sensitive person, I often ‘see’ energy like waves of color and light moving through or around a person’s experience. People can choose to allow the collective energy to either drain their personal essence of vital life force, or to attune themselves with a energizing, revitalizing empowering essence. The choices that we make during times in which we do not feel saturated and supported by light and love, are the ones that ‘temper,’ refine, and ultimately test the strength of our spirit. The moments when we are most afraid, and the ego-mind is shouting discouragement, and yet, we find that a glimmer of hope, or yearning for a deeper sense of joyful self, still manages to assert itself, and brings forth enough courage that we do choose to align with our Higher Self and Soul Path, are the choices that will often define the course of our lives.

The infinite supply is a network of light that extends through each human, all of nature, the cosmic reality and is inter-dimensional. We simply choose to be connected to our own light and the fear based feelings begin to dissipate through our powerful Will. Sometimes this willpower diffuses the lower vibrations most effectively by ‘remembering’ on a Soul level, that we are each strong, capable, and worthy of Love. A prayer that I have practiced in variations of, for moments in life in which I am asked to choose between continuing forward on a path of joy, or one of self repression is:

“Dear God/ess, please help me to connect with the ways in which I am strong, capable, and worthy of experiencing Divine Love and Joy in this life. Please send the Archangel Micheal to cut the chords of fear I have attached to me at this time, so that it is with a sense of personal and cosmic freedom that I choose the course of my life in this moment. I ask that Archangel Jophiel assist me in seeing the beauty that I carry, and its reflection in the many beautiful people and places on this planet. Please send the fairy kingdom to help me navigate my path on the physical reality, so that I connect with the people, places, the Soul Group with whom I can bring and share the most light, while feeling supported on my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”

May we each, in our capacity as Light workers, choose this day, and all days in our collective future, to honor the Divine Love we are capable of carrying, broadcasting, and amplifying in all ways.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia
