Making Space For Love

photo-24

Many people believe, that finding their soulmate would require a miracle.  That the odds of finding that special fire in another soul that brings out the best within themselves, and gives a feeling of balance is the stuff of dreams or fairytales.  Yet the truth, as I perceive it, is that finding the ultimate in loving relationship does not require an act of God, but rather an act of unity within the self, that allows the divine within each human to shine forth.  This shining allows the Soul mates to ‘see’, ‘feel’ and ‘recognize’ the special light of one another through the veil of flesh, ego, and distance.

Many people believe that to find their soulmate they would be willing to sacrifice something, and though this sentiment of belief in sacrifice is one that is echoed in many religions for receiving grace from a deity or god, what the angels would ask to be sacrificed, or released, is very different from the offerings people often believe they should make.  The angels ask that to attract love, we create space within our lives, ourselves and our auras by releasing these things:

Fear: of being unworthy of another’s Love.

Guilt: that the decisions that have been made in life leading to this place, have made you undeserving of Love.

Procrastination: ignoring the small nudges in the directions of self nurturing, health and wellness, and following the yearning of the heart for career changes, or a new home or location of living.

Ego: that negative voice or self talk that repetitively says ‘you can’t or won’t or shouldn’t.  

The Divine Force, whether called God or Goddess,Creator, or another name, works with the Higher-self, the soul-flame that is your own unique resonance, and encourages this resonance to ‘vibrate’ to make the music so to speak, or its highest potential at all times.  This is not an urging to always achieve, or to be perfect in thought and deed and action, but rather to sing with joy for the experience of living with voice, action or creation.  

When we first allow the healing and Love for ourselves to flow from the earth and the angels into our being, we begin to vibrate at a higher rate, to send out a beacon of angel-like sound or light that calls across space and time to another soul that is vibrating at a similar level.  To give up fear, guilt, procrastination of life purpose and negative ego,  creates expansive space for Love to fill.

The secret to attracting a deep life affirming love is simple.  Begin every day with these words or a variation of a similar theme that resonates with you:

“I am loved by the universe.  I speak, feel, perceive and act with Divine Love. My body, self and being are reflections of Love, and my guardian angels send me clear and constant reminders of my Souls worthiness of this Love. Please (God/Goddess) and Angels, help me to clearly communicate and understand a healthy, life affirming love in all my relationships, and to safely recognize my Soulmate with joy.”

A mantra has incredible healing and manifesting power.  Especially one that is centered on loving the self.  Archangel Jophiel in her radiant fuchsia hues steps forward with wide wings of light that help to beautify the consciousness by sweeping away fear, guilt, ego and procrastination.  Archangel Gabriel whispers messages of encouragement and draws a beacon of light across the map of life to send alternate messages of direction.  With a lightening strike of blue light, Archangel Michael steps forward to cut away any chords of negative energy that are left over from previous relationships.  Ask Archangel Michael to help cut the chords, while also ask for Archangel Raphael to send healing on all levels to the body, mind, spirit and heart.

All of the Angels, your personal guardians as well as the dynamic team of Archangels that are messengers of God(dess) wish you to celebrate your life with loving radiance, and to have this love reflected back at you in friendships, family (whether family of the heart or biological), and romantic partners. 

May your day be filled with Blessings and Light,

The Long Road Home

Image

If you have been blessed with a heightened sensitivity to energy on the planet during your present incarnation, it is probable that at certain times in your life, you have experienced excessive exhaustion.  The kind that has you pulling over on the side of the road for a necessary or immediate nap, or turning off your phone and nesting into a cocoon in the quiet cave of a room or beloved armchair.

These tendencies and yearnings are a healthy and helpful manifestation of feeling ‘overwhelmed’ by energies circulating through one’s auric field, and the physical manifestation of exhaustion is like a flashing light warning that your bodies; emotional, spiritual, mental and physical, are waiting for an important opportunity to process the swirling energy and integrate the light from your higher self into a more balanced place with your present reality.

This present cycle is like an amplifier for all energy.  Whether one is bombarded by universal, internal, or immediate external energies, all are intensified like a stereo system set on full volume surround sound.  In some circumstances, such as the unique opportunity your Angels and guides and guardians are experiencing for a clear, louder pathway to your subconscious, this is an exciting and invigoration time for important inspiration and life changes. If time is not set aside for the integration of this heightened self awareness, however, physical symptoms can manifest to literally put a halt to all other activity until the body and spirit mind can reach a level understanding of one another.

Naps, journaling, and alone time are especially important for clarity.  Unless we give ourselves the gift of solitary processing, it can become difficult to navigate through the energy that is our own, and differentiate between that which is effecting us form outside sources.  Our energy bodies are vast.  Like beautiful mountains or oceans unto themselves, and yet, wandering through existence in the present incarnation as humans, we often forget to create space to ‘unfurl our wings’.  Whether we consciously find time and space to expand and clear through our energies, the energy body itself attempts to stretch of its own accord, and in so doing, can occasionally sweep up some of the karmic and psychic debris that is being shed by the world at large at this time. A healthy and affordable way to bring about clarity is to indulge in an epsom salt bath.  Half a cup of epsom salts leaves your aura sparkling and recharged.  Another tool is to visit a beloved lake, river, or mountain and find a small pebble that you are drawn to.  Ask the mountain, stream or river Angels to lend you the stone, and carry it is your pocket through out the day.  Find time to hold it in both hands and feel the grounding presence of your borrowed piece of earth radiating calm into your being.  When you feel it is the right time, return the stone to where you borrowed it from.

It is more important than ever to approach ourselves, and the world at large with Kindness.  Be kind to yourself and others when they seem more exhausted than would be convenient.  Be kind in forgiving the moments in which fiery or explosive energy bubbled up in yourself and others and allow it to leave as quickly as it surfaced, filling the space it left behind with love.  Love for a planet that is evolving, sometimes painfully.  Love for the Self as it navigates the intricacies of the physical plane, perhaps yearning more than ever for realization of its own brilliant light and communion with the Divine.  Give yourself, and those around you a pat on the back and perhaps a mug of tea.  Remember to say, “It’s okay to slow down, sometimes stillness is a gift, and we are all growing. Today I am still perfectly me, and you are perfectly you, and through the challenges of this life, your Angels want you to know one thing, more than anything else: You are loved.”

with kindness,

Kaleidoscope of Light

The world is changing, as she always does.  The energy shifting at the present time is so powerful that even those people who are new to exploring or recognizing a dialogue of energetic realities are seeking out their own unique ways of spiritual expression.

When I ‘look’ at the earth at this time I see tides of light and color moving across and around her, a giant swirl of energy, breaking through the solidified patterns of the past and creating space for greater growth and expansion.  Obviously, this clearing creates opportunities for fear based energies to expand as well, but with focused intentions for a higher vibration and love based future by each of us on an individual level, we have the power to transform and decide the direction each of our countries, governments and our shared planet.

This is the ultimate time to embrace the flow of light and transformation sweeping past each of our individual lives.  As flooding moved across different areas of the planet, and in a similar fashion as a flood of people took to the streets to protest different political agendas or social injustices, we become linked to this tide of light.  Bringing a daily prayer into our routines that honors this impetus for change, and refocuses our intention for our highest good as well as that of the planet is like adding another star to the sky.  We all are extremely receptive to igniting our own spark when those around us are doing the same.

The following is a prayer, that can be said to whatever higher power/source you are most inspired by at this time:

“I invoke the love and light of my highest consciousness, with the aid and assistance of Godd/dess, my guardian Angels and the Archangel Jophiel who sees the beauty in all living beings, to align my true self with its Soul Path, so that I may be an advocate of healing, peace and change for the most benevolent outcome on the planet at this time.  I ask for assistance and love to be shared with those individuals that are struggling most, so that their own sense of self worth and worthiness is filled with divine compassion.  May love and protection from lower energies be with me, and those that I care about, as well as those that I struggle with the most, every step of the day.”

In praying for those that we do not agree with, we open up a pathway of light to their higher selves, and their highest chakras.  In so doing, we are paving the way for change.  Although praying for those that are wrecking havoc on the planet can be very challenging, it is also one way that the fear and anger we carry is absolutely removed from our own auric fields, allowing us to shine brighter and inspire further transformation.

Claim a moment throughout your day, and create a sacred space for these prayers, noticing the immediate changes to your emotional, mental, spiritual and ultimately, physical body, after saying them. If you find yourself suddenly wanting to change clothing to brighter colors or cleanse a piece to jewry you have been wearing regularly in salt water, this is a normal manifestation of your physical reality wanting to to ‘catch up’ so to speak with the changes that have occurred in your auric field.

To maintain this sense of relief and wellness, consider adding a piece of silk to your wardrobe for the day.  Silk helps to wipe clean the energy it interacts with, and a light scarf can either be worn or simply kept in a bag to run ones hands over to ‘clear’ energy throughout the day.  If you are experiencing an overwhelming amount of mental confusion, consider wearing the silk scarf on your head for an hour at home.

Remember that praying for the planet, the collective unconscious, those we love, and ourselves as individuals, does make a difference.  I assure you that a prayer is like a beacon of light, shooting upwards and outwards in the etheric plane, and whether from a stranger or someone we know, the light when it touches us all, is ‘felt’ and deeply appreciated.

With light,

Kamia

Becoming Who We Are Right Now

Allot of people I’ve been interacting with have remarked about their changes in energy levels.  Changes to their physical energy levels, their ability to offer and sustain familiar patterns in relationship, and their desire or lack of desire to manifest and create new energy for interests on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane.  What I am gathering, from personal experience as well as these illuminating conversations, is that this is a year with an ‘opposites’ theme in some respects. Be patient with yourself and others, transformation is powerful, all encompassing, and challenging.

 

If you have lived many years in a pattern of sedentary, stillness, this year you may feel as though there are fireworks attached to your feet.  Suddenly all you can do is MOVE.  For this change I celebrate you!  It is a natural manifestation of all of the light you have gathered up until this point.  It is safe to move forward, to change and relocate and have a very different life all of a sudden.  To apply for a new job, get engaged, dye your hair a vibrant shade and dance down the streets, singing all of the way.  You are not losing your sanity, you are simply channelling another aspect of your beautiful self you have always fostered internally. Harness your impetus and enthusiasm for change, and cheer those around you that you are witnessing doing the same.  Your heart chakra is beaming golden, rainbow radiance, and this is a gift to the entire world as well as your inner Self.

If you, however, are an individual used to ‘achieving’, this will be a year where perhaps that impetus to exercise seven days a week, nurture everyone around you, and sleep five hours a night, isn’t really working anymore.  Your internal flame is still just as bright, but it is sending light into your own cells, transforming the expression of your essence in a new and unique way.  You are still a beautiful, talented, energy-rich being, but no, you cannot achieve as much in a day as in previous years as perhaps were accustomed to, and there can be physical repercussions if you attempt to force yourself to do so.  Respect your body and soul’s need for this gift of regeneration, and create space in an otherwise hectic schedule to just slow down and receive.  Receive the messages from you inner wisdom, your connection to the divine, and your loved ones.  Allow them to gift you with the bouquets of flowers and kindness you have been so very comfortable bestowing all of these year.  Being still, does not lesson your importance, as those around you who are even now bursting forth from their accustomed shells, can tell you.

It takes courage to try a new approach to your life, and courage is required to sit in stillness, just as it is required to go rocketing down another pathway.

This year is a transformational year.  It is important to remember that transformation requires ALLOT of energy.  To rebuild the self on any level, to birth a new dream, create a new job, project, loving relationship or lifestyle, the self is drawing from the internal flame, that divine light that is always accessible, and making the light manifest in this world.  We are all manifesting on a cellular, soul and emotional level.  Our hearts are shedding lifetimes worth of debris.  The emotional roller coaster that accompanies this release can be exhausting or exhilarating.  Either response it the natural response for our individual bodies and life journey’s at this time.

A focus that can help to bring each individual back to a place of balance, amidst the every changing year, is to remember self kindness, acceptance and respect.

Respect that your process is unique and your own.  Be kind as the patterns that are familiar are stripped away, and feed yourself loving words.  A mantra I find useful is “I accept where I am on my journey.  I trust that I am evolving at the safest speed for me.  I accept Angelic support and aid at this time.  I am radiant with light.”

 

Your higher self is using this brilliant opportunity, this transformational year, to flow more freely into your every day life. Honor the inclinations you are having whether they are for extra sleep or a sky diving adventure, restorative yoga or taking up downhill mountain biking.  Your instincts and ideas are communications from your Angels and Higher self.   Embrace these changes and celebrate what a magnificent being you truly are!

 

With respect and light,

Feeding Ourselves, a Diet without ‘Self’ denial.

I used to think that ‘giving up something’ was the first step to better health; Give up coffee, get more clarity, give up meat, be more energetically sensitive. I know allot of friends that give up fats and oils in their diets, to get thinner, or give up sugar to feel better about their bodies.

After many years of meditating, and letting my ego tell me what was ‘good’ or ‘bad’, I finally created enough space and silence so that I could actively ‘hear’ my angels, and their loving guidance on the subject.

This is what they say to me, and it always resonates as truth, if I begin to veer towards self-denial on a physical, etheric or emotional plain:

Feed yourself so much sweetness in life, that you no longer crave chocolate.

Celebrate the beauty around you, and within you, relish the sensuality of nature, and become the sensual being you yearn to be.  Your shape and size are a reflection of the beauty of God(dess), and if you let yourself ‘be’ in this moment, as glorious as your soul truly is, you will spend the day dancing, instead of suffering. Your joints are lubricated by joy, as well as essential fatty acids and oils.

Decide you truly deserve happiness.  That’s right, say out loud: “Today I am Happy!!” not with conditions of monetary goals, pant size, perfect job, ideal relationship, or brand new vehicle.  Today, decide, that you will be happy, and allow yourself to be! Be happy in the face of a spilled beverage on your new white shirt, with the car that broke down, giving you a few blessed minutes, after the frustration, to meditate and watch the world pass by.  Happiness is a state of mind.  Our mind’s are all powerful, we are in charge.

Acknowledge grief.  Feel it, and weep, and as the tears fall down, let them transform to cleansing waters.  Like a river that is rushing past you, let the grief go.  If we allow ourselves to feel the feelings, we can transform to a lighter sence of being afterwards.  Grief is real.  It can be burried beneath anger, or guilt, but if we honor it by truly feeling it, there is a blessing beneath; the river of release has just lightened your being, it has created greater space for joy.  Celebrate the warrior(ess) you have been through the situations that caused grief, and stand with pride, for you are brilliant with light, beauty and greater compassion for all of those people and situations you encounter in your future.

Say: “I am rich with abundance, my life and being are ripe with inspiration, integrity and opportunity,” and repeat it, until your ego has shrivelled up, from the strength of your words.

Yes, we can all spend a lifetime tailoring our food choices and exercise regime to the latest and greatest ‘diet,’ but when we centre ourselves into the awareness of what our true cravings are; for love, reassurance, abundance, safety, and joy, then many of the ‘health’ choices, food, and exercise come intuitively.  If we make choices based on ‘what is for my highest good’, instead of focusing on self denial or lack, then we are free to let the light, the divine, our angels, guides and higher selves support and encourage us on every level.

May something in this post resonate with your own truth,

with love

Being Free from Disappointment

Dealing with disappointment is a skill that can benefit from some fine tuning on the etheric plane as well as emotionally. To stimulate a balancing of all of our ‘bodies’, begin with the physical, through balancing the third and fourth chakra’s.  Most people will experience disappointment as a feeling in their stomach, or in relationships, at their heart center.  A heaviness or pressure in either of these regions can lead to further feelings of self doubt, lethargy, and fluctuations in appetite. Bending forward in a forward bend, seated or standing helps to release from the stomach.  Spreading your shoulders wide to the sky and tilting your head very gently back, opens and clears at your heart center.

IMG_0554

The steps to fully alleviating these feelings, are to at first acknowledge them with Love.  Of course, the lottery ticket that didn’t win, the relationship that was painful, the job  promotion or offer that didn’t come was disappointing.  Most importantly, those disappointments are in no way a reflection of your worthiness, beauty, or soul purpose.  They are experiences on the human plane that come with having signed on for your present incarnation as a person.

Acknowledge that you are disappointed, yet simultaneously take the time to allow and ask for help from your guardian angels, helpers, guides, ascended masters and god-force, also aids in washing away, so to speak, the energy from your heart and stomach. Your third chakra, for example, corresponds with your personal feelings of Power.  It is the driving force that allows you to be assertive, physically strong, shielded from lower energies, and positive in life affirming action.  When you apply for a dream job, one you don’t think you may get, and you don’t get it, you are disappointed. You have also, however, just sent out an energy beam to the universe saying you are starting to realize you deserve a happier, more fulfilling position than you believed previously.  This message is loud and vibrant.  It is like an energetic shooting star that gets brighter with your continued confidence in yourself.  To allow the disappointment of an initial try to dim that light is counterproductive to your overall well being and success.  Look at the situation that has disappointed you, then allow yourself to release it, and say affirmatively from a place of your own centered power at your stomach, “I create space for greater happiness and abundance in opportunity, awareness, and love.”

Each of us has a negative personal mantra chorus we carry around that blocks our abilities to manifest, and your angels and guides sincerely want you to change that mantra to a positive one.  Absolutely, on every level they want you to be vibrating at your highest potential for energy, abundance, prosperity, love and personal truth.  If you wish to identify the negative mantra, take a moment to follow the pathways of your thoughts when you experience disappointment.  What is the first response in thought you have?  Is it, “I knew I couldn’t get another job.” or “I’m not worthy of love,” or even “I’ll never change.”  Widen your awareness and ‘feel’ where these thoughts are experienced in your body, most often it will be at your stomach or heart.

To change these affirmations to ones radiating light, take out the negative and replace it with a ultra-positive. “I am absolutely deserving of love,” “I excel and enjoy my career, I find creative solutions and opportunities everywhere I look,” or “Every day I am growing and learning along my joyous soul path.”  The difference in feeling, on the emotional, physical and spiritual plane will be almost instantaneous.

To remove the last traces of disappointment energetically, consider seeking a session with a light worker, this could be a book from the library, a massage, reiki, or an angel card session.  Your thoughts are alchemical, you have the ultimate power to transmute fear into gold, but sometimes, even the most balanced, grounded, independent person can use some help.  Asking for help is another lesson in dealing with disappointment, and there is no shame in it, rather the opposite.  The angels applaud your desire to reach out and have light reflected to you through friendships, relationships or services.

 

May your day be free of disappointments, yet if they come, may they not control you.  Be rich in your self praise and personal journey of exploring the new avenues that are unfolding.

with Light,

Kamia

Even the Clouds like Hearts on Valentines Day

Valentines day has always been my favorite day of the year.  It’s a combination of a day dedicated to heart shaped decor, and my unabashed desire to tell people I love and appreciate them.  Single, attached, or married, this day dawns with a special rose filled ambience that has me seeing flashes of the divine feminine; Mary holding roses at her breasts, Kuan Yin rising from a lotus, Lakshmi showering people’s upturned faces in gold, Spider Woman weaving a web of light to enfold us all, and Aphrodite surrounded by pearls of wisdom, the sea foam eternally cleansing the old energy away so that there can be greater space for LoveImage.

No matter who you are, or what your circumstance, there is a horde of angels raining soft colors of light about you every single day. You may not trust that they are there, but I assure you, they are!  Every minute of every day, they are whispering, and sometimes shouting, “Hey!! You are loved!!”

Whether you are a Valentines skeptic, or a giant fan, such as myself, today is about seeing the beauty and worthiness of love within you, and if you so choose, the sharing of that love with the world at large.

Be bold, be spiritually beautiful! Smell the flowers that abound on this day, and definitely eat a box of your favorite chocolates. I’ll be doing all of those things, and shouting out energetically, that there is Divine Love around, and for you all!

Innocence and Relationship

Many times in life, the ego asserts itself with punishing words and self blame that is unfair, and unfounded. It is important to develop an internal dialogue that brings the ego back into balance, and fosters an inner warrior-ship that defends the innocence we all carry.  Innocence, as I recently communicated to a client, is not the same as naivete.

Innocence is the ability to see the absolute light and love within the self, another, or a situation, and our faith that anything can be tranformed.  It is with Innocence that we often leap forward to tell someone or share with someone in relationship(can be friendship) all of the potential and gifts we believe they carry.  It is with Innocence that we find the courage to have faith in ourselves, to attempt a new class, new career, move, or trip.  When we watch a child discover the magic of the world, to talk to the animals and unseen fairies as friends, to speak of the dreams they have, we are reminded of the innate Innocence that they carry and we ourselves carry.

Foster this beautiful attribute within yourself.  Make a list of the dreams you have that are based on this purity of heart, and repeat, as many times as it take, “I deserve to trust and believe in my worthiness to foster this beautiful vision within my self”.

I often see those around me, stepping forward to act in honour of their own belief in others light, particularly in relationship.  Sometimes this light is not as consciously honoured in the partner or individual they want to beam themselves at.  This does not mean that they were wrong in believing the other was deserving of this light, recognition, or faith.  Sometimes it means that the other is not as aware of their own light, and are not capable at this time of reflecting it back to you.  You have given them a gift in sharing yourself and your faith in this way.  Foster this gift by allowing them to continue on their path, in hopes that they may find the means of honouring themselves in a similar way one day.  Foster your inner innocence by moving forward in search of relationships that are as equally nourishing of the self, as you are willing to be of another.

We are all born Innocent, sometimes circumstance and experience dampens this brilliant light within, but no matter what, it is still within you.  The angels reach around you in a gentle hug, to foster and reignite the spark.  See the world  this way for a day, see the light within all others, and remember, you are shining, every moment of every day, the angels acknowledge this, it is time to acknowledge it yourself.

with Love
