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

Peaceful Warriors, Past and Present Lifetimes


Peaceful Warriors come in all shapes and sizes. There are those who are advocates of emotional peace, who share their gifts of a nurturing and sustainable heart based life. There are those whose minds strive to see the pathways forward, what an earth, a connected humanity and planet that existed with a greater overall exchange of resources, information and conservation techniques could truly achieve. There are those that physically act and intervene for the peacefulness of humanity as a whole, through emergency response, rescue and upholding the law. There are also those who are spiritually based Peaceful Warriors, those who through mediation, leadership, healing, dream walking, astral projection or prayer connect and seek to effect positive light exchange on an energetic level.

On the energy level, many people are incarnated at this present time with incredible gifts for sharing, receiving and strengthening the fabric of light that weaves through the manifest universe. We each connect in our own particular way, and perceive this light based connection individually. When I ‘tune in’ with my clairvoyance through the filter of my present consciousness, I perceive the web like light wrapping through and around the planet with each individual like an intersection, a node that pulses in time their heartbeat their own unique resonance.

Some people are able through their particular light to elevate the peacefulness of being, these people we readily identify as they help us to feel safe by simply being present in our lives. Some are able to infuse the light network with Love, creativity, patience, compassion, strength, resilience, enthusiasm, passion, and inspiration. Each person has a gift to share. What happens during times in which the planet itself and mass consciousness undergoes massive shifts is that this network of light (in my humble perception) begins to seek balance within itself and through the nodes of light that are incarnated beings. So, if we are an incredibly sensitive person to overall planetary energy, and those who are near to us physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually or those who are on a similar soul assignment elsewhere on the globe, are experiencing challenges and rebirth, we may feel a draw, a pulling like sensation on our own light. Our role as peaceful warriors for this planet does not ask us, however, to ever infuse the light experience of other beings with our own resonance/essence. At times in which people are seeking to regain their own sense of solidity and balance, we are asked to infuse our own self with the Divine Source. To call on the helpers from the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fairy Kingdom, Spirit Guides and Ancestors that are the beams of light infusing our individual and universal experience with high vibrational energy each and every day that we are open to receiving.

When we seek to support the over all network, or individuals that we have encountered in this or previous lifetimes, it is very important to remember that the Divine Source is what fuels the energy grid and as sparks/ light beings and pillars of this essence, having a human experience, we can help to ground the overall grid only when we have first ‘filled up’ and balanced our own levels of being. We are currently physical beings and we are asked to honour spirit in ways that are sustainable in our current life paths. Do we physically need time, practice and space to harness our spiritual experience into a healing, comprehensives evolution of self? Mentally, where do we receive the guidance, support or encouragement we need? From people, nature, books, or online resources? Emotionally, what have we done on a personal level to infuse our heart with compassion and grace? The world around us will always be in a state of shifting. Our role as peaceful warriors can be a devotion of divine source fuelled life that celebrates the rebirthing that constantly occur around us, and within us when necessarily, but through a healthy boundary of light and compassion.
When we tune into our energy bodies, envisioning ourselves in an egg shaped sphere of soft gold or white light, what is the first thing we notice? We are all capable of self analysis and intuitive understanding. We are also through these moments of self awareness, capable of clearly receiving encouragement to visit the specialists on the level of our being that seeks alternative or further support. Councillors, teachers, medical professionals, nutritionists, body work specialists or energy workers all act as channels of light for their own unique modalities. We work alongside others, and our energy nodes of personal being are empowered to recharge in the ways in which we need for a sense of balance and peacefulness.

A prayer that I have used for my own balance is:

“Dear Divine Source, please help me. Help me in all the ways I need at this time, even those I am not fully conscious of. Please send my clear indication through intuition and other angelically guided information, that guides me to choose the pathways forward that brings the most light possible through my own being, into my own life path, my family, my community, and the world as a whole. Please help me to feel safe as I navigate life changes big or small, so that the resonance I am emitting at this time, remains/continues peaceful and compassionate towards all living beings. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

A prayer that I often use when witnessing the grid of light being ‘pulled’ in many directions at once seeking to refuel itself is:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send the light that is necessary at this time to the places on the planet experiencing vast changes on any level. Please infuse the soul essence of the individuals whose live in these places with the light and resources they require to fulfill their soul agreement for learning in this present incarnations. If they pass beyond their current bodies, please guide them into the light grid for their highest good. I ask that the angels working alongside each individual be clear and present for those who are willing to receive assistance at this time, to see the pathways towards compassion and grace that can be of most service to the overall evolution of this planet as a whole. Thank you, Amen Om and Amen”

After such prayers we are each often more receptive to the intuitive understanding of what our role is in holding our own intersection of light stable in a shifting conscious reality. May we each feel balanced in these roles of self.

May we each feel empowered to foster Divine Light as Peaceful Warriors, Dreamers, Seers, Healers, Light workers, Teachers and every other path that someone has consciously chosen for the good of themselves and the whole in their own unique ways.

All those with heightened sensitivities at this time are Warriors in their own ways. And God/dess thank us each for the ways we seek to ‘hold’ our spiritual ground for the whole.

With light and respect,
Kamia
