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,

Loneliness as the Supreme Teacher

It is not in the company of other people that loneliness is always diffused. Rather it is in the company of our Divine Light, that we allow to expand and fill us with a connection to the Source we originated from, and will one day return to, that we can release feelings of loneliness. With an expanded awareness we can see the ways our choices, our self awareness and self esteem, effects our human experience and filters the amount of Light and Divine Love we allow ourselves to receive. People can be lonely in a crowded room, lonely in a relationship or out of one. We can be lonely with family or with a circle beloved friends. The manifestation of loneliness is sometimes a Spiritual ‘wake-up call’, a call to action, to reaffirm an aspect of ourselves that is ready to be birthed into the physical reality. What are the ways we are each embracing the light we have to share? Do we seek to express through words, movement, travel, self love or life change, a new manner of being? Have we acknowledged that a situation that was once tolerable is no longer sustaining what we truly wish to manifest in our lives? Such as a home or job that we have ultimately outgrown? With the courage of confronting and accepting the loneliness and allowing for the wisdom of the self to rise and be expressed, we can uncover a deeper sense of self that is not conditional on anyone, other than our own unique and shining selves.

When I bare witness to peoples aching loneliness, what I ‘see’ with clairvoyant perceptions, is a deep longing to reconnect with their own personal Higher Self, Soul Purpose, and manner of being, truly aware of their dynamic light. Life can afford us each patterns that distract our focus, on the awareness that we are each greater beings, with gifts, wisdom, incredible energy and Light to share with the world. In the routines of daily living we can become affected by the energy that people in our direct vicinity as well as on a world scale, are emitting through ego based thoughts surrounded self denial of happiness, or disempowerment. Yet, if we seek out sacred space and give ourselves permission to experience the emotions of Loneliness or Grief that is haunting our subconscious mind, we are assisted by the etheric support team of Divine Love that is present for each of us, in uncovering the true message seeking to be recognized from our Soul.

I have allowed Loneliness to be a supreme teacher in this current life. My perception of loneliness has grown through out this incarnation through experiencing an overwhelming wave of intense emotion, often times as a prequel to a major life change. For example, I often felt aching loneliness in school. By allowing for time to meditate on the root cause of where this feeling originated, I empowered myself to travel around the world at 18yrs old, to reconnect with and accept pieces of cosmic memory that these other countries offered. I wanted to experience alternate cultures and landscapes, that I recognized from previous incarnations. In my early twenties, I had periods of time where I was again overwhelmed by loneliness. When out in nature, alone, meditating, and expanding my energy self, this loneliness revealed a deep Longing to reconnect with my Soul Path, and to find the courage to bring forth messages surrounding the etheric realm and my clairvoyant perceptions. When I turned to face the emotions and personal truths, I no longer experienced Loneliness. Instead I felt as if my cells, self and being were re-infused with dynamic and vital life force. Later when I became a mother, I also felt a reemergence of Loneliness. I had a child to love, a soulmate relationship, and a very fulfilling life, how could I possibly be feeling lonely? I would ask myself. Yet when I explored the loneliness, again I found that it was the messenger of a longing to again seek to uncover personal spiritual truths and to share them through my book ‘Soul Evolution”. In birthing the book, I again felt the resurgence of personal empowerment and purpose that had come through previous Loneliness exploration.

A prayer that I have found useful when choosing to acknowledge personal feelings of loneliness is:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send me the assistance of the Light beings who bring courage and strength, so that I may be assisted in the unfolding of Truths form my Higher Self and being that wish to come through at this time. Please send me the attributes of Shiva and the Archangel Micheal as well as the Divine Mother, so that I may courageously confront and accept the the life changes I am being called to make on the spiritual, emotional, mental or physical levels of being. Please help me to stay centered in my connection to the beautiful earth as I contemplate and choose what changes I am ultimately ready to make. Please help me to accept healing and assistance on all levels as I move forward along my Soul Path in alignment with my true self. Thank You, Amen, OM and Aho.”

Whatever messages come through, listen and accept them. I am so thankful for every instance in which through this acknowledgement of a desire to grow, I listened and became more compassionate towards myself, and the world at large. Being alone on our pathways of self discovery is in alignment with the archetype of the Hero or Heroine. In our aloneness, our greatest strengths are given opportunity to rise, grow and ultimately guide us through the adversity of Growth. Yet the aspect of the Hero’s journey that is so often missed in many stories, plot lines and depictions, is that in the embrace of personal Purpose and power, the feeling of being ultimately alone, dissipates and is replaced with a powerful understanding of the good that connects all living beings, and the gifts we, as individual hero’s/heroine’s, are able to share universally.

My loneliness ultimately lead me to becoming an author. And when people read my work, and it is helpful to them in some way, I feel the web of light that connects us all, across the planet, infused with a brighter wider level of compassion, and my own node of light within it.

with light, respect and thanks for reading this work,

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”
