The Alchemy of Following Our Dreams

IMG_2674

There is a special alchemy, a transformative magic that occurs in our lives, when we finally give ourselves permission to follow our dreams. Like a flood of light that cascades around us on the etheric realm, the impetus for action and change towards following our deepest dreams, washes away karmic debris that we have carried from previous lives and lower vibrations of fear accrued in our present one.

The deepest dreams of the heart, when truly examined are rarely based on fame on fortune(though those can be a result of realizing ones dream). Rather, the deepest dreams are often the manifestation of ones greatest gifts, made accessible, powerful, and shining outwards into the physical world. For example, when I committed to sharing my spiritual perceptions and understanding with the world at large, my life and reality altered in alchemical, transformative ways. In claiming my personal power to ‘see’ beyond this physical reality, to be clairvoyant and assist people in their own levels of self awareness, I transformed the way I ‘saw’ the world. When I was open about perceiving other levels of reality, I offered acceptance to others for perceiving in their own fashion, the greater reality of the cosmos. In this sharing, I gifted myself with a deeper level of self love and acceptance than ever before in this present life.

By offering ‘readings’ for others, I could witness the transformative power of prayer, release, and abundance on the spiritual level of existence, and celebrate in aiding in the facilitation of others self healing journey. My deepest dream from my heart, was to use the written word to continue to share messages of hope, divine love, and the etheric reality. By allowing myself to initially speak about what I was ‘seeing’, I become self empowered to write about what I perceived. The writing became a blog, and a Facebook page, those two opened the doorways of my consciousness to manifest a book, ‘Soul Evolution’. Along the way I faced several internal battles, between fear and divine consciousness. The fear was layered from other lifetimes, ones in which I had died for sharing spiritual messages or healing. In this current life I carried fears surrounding finances, or lack their of, and insecurities surrounding spreading my messages to a wide enough audience that anyone would read my book. Each level of fear, was a test of my commitment to my dreams for sharing and inspiring messages of Compassion. Some required days of prayer, others several walks in the woods, and a few sleepless nights of mantra, to overcome. Yet at each stage of birthing, I was able to connect with that strength of will that accompanies following the light of my hearts dream and desire.

Each person, who commits to a dream, whether it be as a builder, a communicator, an artist, a self realized individual, a musician, a teacher, or a myriad array of other manifest dreamers, will face challenging levels of fear. This is where truly connecting and honoring the deepest dream becomes alchemy. It is not only the fears of the self that must be overcome on a journey towards dream realization, but also the fears that one has ingested from culture and society at large. Some fears our society in the west encourages, surround the ‘value’ of ones projects and dreams on the financial level. There is an undercurrent of belief that pervades many who wish to create, and it suggests that unless a large quantity of money flows from the project, creation, passion, or lifestyle, then the value is low. This thought pattern denies both the creators, and the world at large from inspiration, hope and cosmic consciousness raising.

The value of following our dreams, investing time and money towards what we truly, deeply, passionately believe in, radiates outwards like a tidal wave, and flows across and over every person we interact with on a grand scale. To follow our dreams empowers others to follow theirs. It is important to consider that one persons dream could lead to a revolutionary pattern of thought that encouraged such divine love and compassion on a grand scale, that the face of the planet began to shift in manner that none could have foreseen a decade before. What if you, the person reading this post, are that person with such a power? What if your small project long dreamed of ignited and empowered a nation? Would you deny the future generations of this world, such a gift, because the fear of not generating enough income from your dream stopped you?

Along my journey I cashed in my savings, published my book, and leapt with arms outstretched towards sharing my own light to the best of my present capacity. The leap has thus far, been absolutely worth it. I value myself, and am better able to value the dreams of others. I have loving relationships in all my interactions, because I feel empowered enough to see others with the Love I afford myself. My dreams continues to be realized each time someone tells me the words I have written or spoken were helpful to them in some way. I would be delighted to sell a million books and perhaps this will or will not ever happen, but truly, the realization of my dream was when I sent out the first hundred for free and received thanks from people who were inspired and empowered through reading ‘Soul Evolution.’ My value to myself and my family unit has grown exponentially, as we each work together to support and encourage another’s dreams. Money is a reality of the world, yet it is not how we should set value on one another’s dreams.

I would like to share two prayers I have long utilized on this journey of birthing and sending outwards my own dreams into the world and the collective consciousness. The first is for identifying ones deepest dreams:

“Dear God/dess or creation, please send me the light of Durga, Quan Yin, Archangel Haniel to fill my being with the courage, compassion, self love and acceptance necessary to allow my greatest gifts and dreams to surface in my consciousness. I am ready to release all fears surrounding unworthiness, lack, and insecurity. I am ready to walk, talk, and act in accordance with my own divine Light, and to offer the world, in the best ways I am able to at this time, all of the Love I carry into this world. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”

 

The second is for during each small or large step along the way to realizing these dreams:

IMG_0603“Dear God/dess of creation, and the source, please help me to connect daily with the ways in which my individual light, contributes to the betterment of this world and cosmos at large. Please send me messages, helpers, guides, and Angels to assist me on this path, especially on days where I feel afraid or unsure of my next step forward. I ask that the Archangels working alongside me in this life, clear my fearful thoughts, and raise my personal vibration to coincide with Divine Love. I am a willing participant and advocate of this love, and ask that each day I am better able to perceive ways in which I can manifest my gifts out into the physical reality. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

As our Souls travel through time and space, it is the mark of energy, and resonance that we leave behind that will define the next stage of our personal Light evolution. What will be each of our pathways, rivers, and intersections of the Divine is entirely up to the choices we make surrounding following our dreams.

I wish each person reading this post, the courage, the strength of will, and the alchemy of spirit they need for their own empowered being to shine, share and evolve. Take chances, be brave, be bold, and define success on the manner in which we can all help one another.

Be Courageous, and Grow.

Courage can sometimes manifest as our willingness to deal with, in a new way, a situation, pattern or concern that has occurred in our lives. Regardless of how long we have experienced a pattern, situation, relationship dynamic, or challenge, it is with a connection to our personal power and truth, that we use Courage and are able to alter our experience.

We are all beautiful unfolding beings, regardless of the stage of expansion we are each experiencing. For example, we may find that a relationship or interaction leaves us with a feeling of ‘dis-ease’ in the sense that we ‘felt’ our boundaries of self were not fully respected. This can be a result of our inability to firmly express our need for particular boundaries, as well as by coming to a spontaneous realization that what is best for our own personal and optimum health, has in fact changed This change, this desire to invest in a personal wellness, balance and sense of wholeness, is a natural occurrence in each individuals journey of transformation and growth.

It is natural to have felt comfortable in a manner of living, a way of thinking, and being, and find that through self analysis, an expansion of awareness, or time, that they desire to alter ones experience has manifested. The impetus to transform, the moment of realization that leads to the inevitable growth like another petal of a flower opening, draws us each closer to the soul path we have chosen to walk. We may not see every day, and through each instance of growth and transformation, where we are ultimately heading. The power of our free will, to make choices daily, directs us in a helix pattern towards and around our ‘core self’. We are each capable of seeing the world from a new perspective, as we continue on the spiral dance of life. From seeing ourselves with a heightened awareness of potential for joy and empowerment, and through these ‘new views’ we become something greater than we have allowed ourselves to believe we truly are.

IMG_3817

Each human can choose to evolve cosmically, emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally. And with these choices, support and empower others to also open and grow. When we find the personal courage, in any instance, to speak from our place of ‘truth’ to acknowledge our expectations of the world and of ourselves to others, we are sending an etheric wave of energy outwards that reverberates and effects all that we interact with. For example we may decide one day that we desire to feel more vital life force energy in our bodies. Suddenly all of the recipes we are comfortable cooking seem to be flavorless and unappetizing. This is a very physical response to shift that is occurring on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level simultaneously. Our desire to honor a new belief that we are ‘worthy’ of feeling energized and enlivened is spreading through our cells, our aura, and our mental construct of identity. Perhaps it requires a new cooking class, a few hours of research on the internet for recipes, or a visit with a nutritionist. Perhaps it will also require a dialogue with those that we love in our direct circle of family who will have to be supportive of our new initiative when sharing meals.

The impetus to change, the moment of realization that we are yearning for growth in a further direction, requires Courage.

A prayer that I have found useful during times of anxiety, transformation, and personal growth is:

“Dear God/dess Creator of all that is and is possible, please send me the assistance of Archangel Michael, Archangel Ariel and of any and all ascended masters that are working with me at this time to bring forth and encourage my personal power and Courageous self. Please help me to have faith that I am developing, have developed and will continue to find, the tools necessary for the changes that are occurring in my life. Please help me to bolster my faith that the soul path I am walking, is filled with blessings. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

Transformation and changes on any level requires intense energy and can often be assisted by a commitment to ‘non attachment’. In this context I refer to ‘non attachment’ as the idea that we can accept that the places, people and feelings that have occurred were real and apart of the learning process that has afforded this new emerging self. I practice ‘non attachment’ by acknowledging the feelings, yet letting them float peacefully away to be cradled and transformed by the earth and the light matrix we are all apart of. Today I felt courageous when I looked at some of the choices I had made previously and acknowledged the ways in which I make different choices now. I practiced non attachment by acknowledging the journey I have taken thus far, and by having faith the the journey I continue on will bring further opportunities to transform, evolve and grow.

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Ready, Set, Go: Introducing an Archangel team for Major Life Changes

During the past few months, many people are experiencing opportunities for rather large life changes. Some of these have been painful, some have been unexpected. All of the life changes going on right now, are like giant leaps from one edge of a canyon to another. There is a moment of disorientation, a fuzzy mental, ‘wait a minute, why am I flying through the air?’ moment, followed by a landing from which perspective, life choices, and reality can be completely and utterly different from what one ‘stood upon’ so to speak, before. Through every stage of these journeys, there are several angelic beings working with you, and Three Archangel’s in particular.

Archangel Chamuel is a soft warm glow, a silvery blue light in my particular perception, that brings about an awareness of Peace. During this shifting, sometimes abrasive feeling, current energy, his gift of soft wings, that lend a balm to the spirit and remind us all to take a deep breath and place one foot with care, after another, on our individual pathways of self realization.

In conjunction with this reminder to seek,and experience Peacefulness, there is also a grand trine, so to speak, of three different Lights working together to illuminate our own unique paths.

On one ‘side’ of the life changes, Archangel Jeremiel, who helps us all to look back and see the pathway that our present incarnations, as well as our Souls in their brilliant and infinite entirety have traveled, is to bring a protective purple light that aids in this ‘life review’.

The next strand that weaves through these deep realizations, and gives us the ‘wings’ the impetus and encouragement to leap, is Archangel Raphael. He is present in soft golds and greens and he is infusing us all with ample light to accept Healing. His gifts are not only for healing, but also for travel, and in this circumstance of universal change and energy, he is reminding us all, to place our bare feet on the earth, on something green like grass, and accept healing and connection to the planet. When we take a flying leap into a new reality of our ‘selves’, when we are ‘traveling’ from one awareness to the next, we are much more likely to land back on our feet, on the new path, the new job, new home, new relationship with others, and ourselves, when our feet are bare, and connected to the earth.

The disjointed feeling that occurs as our combined consciousness evolves is natural. If we have always ‘perceived’ the world in one way, and a thousand new colors, we have never heard or seen, for example were added to the palette around us, we would feel some vertigo as we adjusted. In this manner, as those that are highly sensitive navigate new awakenings, to keep their balance, bare feet on the earth can be a helpful and daily tool for feeling both grounded, and present, as the new changes, the new awakening, is integrated into the psyche.

To complete this trine of energy, is the Christ Consciousness, not solely Jesus, but the core of light that is both “god/dess” and Jesus. I like to visualize it as Jesus being the lantern, with the Christ Consciousness lighting his essence from the inside outwards. Now, this consciousness is like the purest diffusion of light, and it is what is waiting on ‘the other side’ of the transformations many are going through.

If a person makes a very drastic life change, being encouraged softly by Archangel Chamuel to seek greater peace in their life, they are surrounded first by Jeremiel’s wings of purple to aid in seeing the ways the choices they have made, the strengths they have nurtured inside, are all available to reconnect them with a ‘greater soul path’ that resonates with their higher self. They are also urged to heal the karmic debris that they will no longer wish to carry on this new path, and to embrace their own beautiful nature. Archangel Raphael is available, just as any of the angels are available, to any and all who think of them and ask for assistance. The small nudges, the music, the colors, the foods that people are drawn to after ‘asking for this help’ are all gifts from the angels answering these prayers. Be open to receiving healing assistance, and it will come to you in ideas, songs, and beautiful unimagined ways.

Throughout both of these stages, Chamuel is present reminding us all, to slow down for a few moments, remember to breathe, and to find space in each day, no matter how great the changes, to invite and foster a sense of Peace. Breathing, with your bare feet on the ground, even for five minutes a day, can bring about this powerful, and vital peacefulness.

When the transformations have occurred, and the whirlwind of change finally opens up, it will be into the arms of the Christ Consciousness, a higher awareness of our own infinite being, our gifts and soul purpose on the planet, as well as to the service of sharing our own journeys to bring about comfort and encouragement to those that are beginning, or in the midst, of their own transformation. The Christ Consciousness is like a web of light that reaches through the cosmos, and can connect with every individual on the planet simultaneously. At this time, as we all are experiencing the potential to be more, ‘open and aware,’ which leads to a greater sensitivity for human expression centered in ‘truth’. When I refer to truth, in this context, it is to celebrate the light, and the beauty within one another. This cycle opens us to larger connections socially as well as cosmically. As we cheer for one another, encourage and celebrate, our honesty, our appreciation of others respect, we will open up new pathways for friendships, relationships, jobs that we love, and connected communities.

With respect for your journey I offer this prayer, as one I have found helpful:

“Dear God/dess, higher self and Christ Consciousness, please help me to find peace each day, in the midst of the many changes I am inviting into my life. Please send Archangel Chamuel to foster this peace, Archangel Jeremiel to remind me of the many tools and strengths I carry, and Archangel Raphael to aid me in healing on all levels during this transformational time. With love, respect and thanks, I celebrate your guidance and assistance, as well as all of the reminders I receive daily that I am walking the path of my Soul’s greatest purpose. Amen, OM, and Aho”

Honouring Rejuvenation and Change

During any change, whether a calendar date, a celebrated anniversary, a move or a new job, the physical world both projects and is effected by the spiritual, emotional, and mental mirroring changes.

For years, when I contemplated ‘making a leap of faith’, my mom would suggest jumping off of a low chair onto the ground.  She would say, ‘the physical world and the corresponding spiritual change like to be connected in a way that honors both’. Even the smallest physical action can be a healthy corresponding resonant balance with the other level that are changing.  One does not need to jump off anything very high when contemplating a leap of faith, in fact choosing a ‘safe’ physical action/creation is just as effective.

As another calendar year approaches, a job change is contemplated, a move or new home is manifested, remember to create and honor each level of the corresponding changes in simple ways.  If you have entered a new relationship, find a place that resonates with safety and kindness such as a beloved bench or  hillside.  If you are a visual person, consider bringing a pen and paper.  If you are an auditory person, choose a place you will feel inspired to sing or chant.  If you are a textural, feeling oriented person, consider essential oils or flower essences such as rose, lavender, or frankincense. When you have found your special place, take a few moments to ground into your being through deep belly breaths.  I enjoy inviting each breath to revitalize and heal my cells.  This is achieved with a thought, or prayer.  As an example for inviting healing in Nature:

I accept and allow assistance and aid from my angels, and the fairies.  I ask that God/dess send the Archangels, and Ascended Masters who will be the most beneficial for my health and well being at this time, and I thank them for all of their love-based transformational light.

When you feel guided or encouraged to open your eyes, allow any sensations, messages, or images that flow through your mind to be observed.  These are messages and guidance from your angels and the other light beings that are surrounding you and encouraging you to grow. Perhaps you receive an image or though about your home, and you feel as though that home has residual energy from previous experiences that you are ready to release or transform.  To do so, envision the space filling with brilliant light, or song, or warmth.  Ask that the angels help you to cut any fear based chords, to clear the space of the fear, and replace it with more room for Love. Follow your intuition and inner knowing.  If you see a space with colors that are different from the ones you have chosen, perhaps it is time for a change of scenery and in the physical reality, to add new colors through a coat of paint or different curtains. The homes we live in retain the trace energy of those that have lived in them previously.  We can ask for the angels to bring fresh light, to clear a space and assist us in transforming the energy of the rooms and building into something that resonates more fully with our own wellness and light.  If at any time, you experience fear during this process ask for Archangel Michael’s assistance.  He carries a brilliant blue sword of light and is always available for clearing fear, and protecting each and any of us from lower energies.  Clearing our homes can correspond with a change in season, or year, or personal rhythm such as a birthday or other anniversary.  Through angelic assistance, as well as some corresponding inspiration to clear out things, to clean or to recycle, we are supporting the spiritual intention with a physical manifestation.

On an emotional and mental level, now employ the tools you have carried with you.  What are the aspects of your life or being that you are ready to release?  Writing them down on a piece of paper employs the mental aspect, and relates it to the physical.  So too does singing, listing or chanting those same things.  Perhaps as a very ‘feeling’ oriented person, there are relationships or thoughts that wish to be released, painful experiences that the self would like to heal from or transform.  At this time, the essential oils, especially the gentle ones listed above can be utilized.  If there is a relationship that you are ready to heal from as well as release, consider placing a drop of rose essence at your heart center, right between your breasts/pectorals.  Perhaps there was a job that was very emotional and mentally draining, a drop of frankincense at the belly button helps to stimulate your personal power, self esteem, and assertiveness.

If you have chosen the piece of paper and writing, and are ready to release everything that has been written down, you could consider burning it to signify release, or if you feel more drawn to transforming it another way, it could be buried in your garden, where so many beautiful plants blossom and grow.

If you have been singing, chanting, or shedding a few tears, remember to gift yourself with a high resonance and sing  or say words that feel empowering.  Perhaps they will be as simple as “I have the courage to effect positive changes in my life!” Accompanied by a few ‘woops’ of delight.

If you have chosen to feel the release and thoughts, or use essential oils, incorporate something that feels nurturing and supportive.  This could be standing up and dancing, or rolling your head gently as if you are giving yourself a loving neck massage.  Interlacing your fingers and placing them over your solar plexus is also an excellent way to ground and connect with your personal resonance, feelings and energies.  This simple gesture does not inhibit your ability to send love and nurture those around you, it simpley allows for your to feel connected to your own emotions and not swept up in another persons experience.

In whichever way you have brought an awareness and healing, transformational honoring experience to the changes that are occurring in your life, I wish you support, stamina and rejuvenation.

Though not always comfortable, changes and growth are a natural experience and in their own way, encourage our individual light to shine even more brightly.
