Trees and Ancient Wisdom

What does the gift of a tree offer us on the etheric level?  We are all empowered to explore that devotion of meditative, transcendental energy.  Trees hold the history and ability to transcend different levels of being.  Their roots teach us of that which exists and anchors us bellow the surface of our own conscious minds.  Their core, the heart and trunk that grows and lives with sap beneath the surface, is so very like our own skin, holding our physical being enclosed and protected as the systems of life occur within our cells.  The branches reach to the light, even as the crown chakra , is every receiving the energy of the manifest universe, the potential to extend up beyond that which we see with physical being, and recharge from Divine Source.  When I began meditating with trees, I was a child.  I would hug close to my heart the ancient being and ‘ask’ to be shown the wisdom of their sentience.  Through the communion of trees, my clairvoyance would expand.  I would see how my rhythms of heart and my energy body would align with the patience of the tree, how the act of being close, and connecting my central nervous system in some manner with the stillness of the rooted being, brought about a deeper sense of calm, of timelessness.  I learned to see that which frustrated or annoyed or was fearful, as so small, in the vastness of season change, the warmth of sun and the exhilaration of wind. When I am in communion in this way, I feel bands of gold light connecting my chakras through my spine, to the centre of the tree.  I become aware of the way my energy body is opening ‘wings’ and gathering wind, sun, light, earth, and water.  With respect, I return to ones that resonate with Peace during times of duress.  Within every living being, is a lesson a teaching and a gift.  What will we develop in ourselves and this world at large through a devotion of time and energy to connecting and learning from other sentient beings? Meditation can be a sinking in, yet over time, it also is an expanding outwards, beyond the confines of physical self, to a deep appreciating for the hearts that beat within us, and the Soul that is so very vast and connected to Light in every direction through multiple dimensions.

On  a recent trip to India, I had the privilege and honour of being present for the planting of shoots, seedlings, from the bodhi tree that Buddha sat beneath during his realization of enlightenment.  The tree, like all living beings who’s life spans recreate themselves through time, carried the energy resonance of that moment, as well as an imprint of the potential shelter or safe haven for spiritual seekers should they choose to seek in a similar way. When I placed my hands at the base of the seedling honoured as the spirit of Truth, the image of three seedlings having the potential to weave together into a gentle dome, that invited in the awakening through heart chakra and crown charka energy, of those who sat within the dome was such that I am encouraged to share my gathered ‘Tree’ perceptions in the following manner:

For those that feel drawn to exploring the healing power of trees spiritually, to learn to explore individual gifts for being rooted into this present life, yet looking through a window of Soul into past lifetimes, and the approaching cycles of light that we may concrete in our future, I offer this simple practice:

Begin the day with gentle movement before stillness, this could be a walk int he sunrise, or gentle yoga, or even sitting and practicing neck rolls, anything that is a natural extension of the ways in which we are each drawn to connect with our physical anchor of self. We acknowledge and honour the body to create a safe harbour for our Spirit.

Breathing fully, visualize oneself as a tree.  The tree may always be the same, or it may change daily.  What flow of energy, feeling, sensation or being do we light heartedly invite?  Do we notice we are weighed down by a ‘load’ of some kind?  Are we reaching outwards with giant branches? Or are we a sapling just beginning?  In the process of developing and refining self awareness, what we each gather from practicing a simple visualization can be very rich.  Having noticed if our tree had creature living around or connected to it, what do we do with our observations?  Do we journal them down, so that further reflection can unfold? Or discuss with a loved one who is open to practising the same gentle exercise?

Sometime through out the day, visit a tree. A prayer that I use is:

“Thank you Divine Source for the bounty of Nature that offers us all so many gifts.  Please allow me to connect in a healing and compassionate way with the wisdom of this forest, and this particular tree, to see, feel and hear that which can be of the greatest service to myself and the world at large, at this time.  Thank you Amen, Oma and Aho.”

It can be that we practice in a forest, or in a meditative state.  What tree holds particular significance for our energy field expansion? To connect with a tree that holds personal Power anywhere on the globe can be done in deep levels of meditation, or it can be physically connecting through a hug, a hand placed against, or leaning with ones spine alongside a local tree.  As sensitivity develops, as we each release the ego or fear based thought patterns that may block our receptive qualities, we may find that the Self connects in new or very ancient ways with the energy source of a tree. If the meditation expansion to an alternate place was chosen, make space to visit a local tree for at least 4mins of communion to anchor the experience. Thank the tree for any wisdom gathered, shared or remembered.

*This is a simple and beautiful practise that can be shared with our children and loved ones. Sometimes we may feel the natural creative manifestation to draw paint or otherwise depict ‘our’ Tree of self.  When we work with e spiritual unfolding, it is a gift we can give ourselves and the world at large to bring forth in a creative fashion, that which we have learned spiritually.

May we be like and connected with the Trees.  May we grow and receive, and grow some more, and leave the seeds of our deepest levels of Compassion, for future generations to grow alongside.

With light and respect for ancient, new or evolving cultures reverence for sacred Trees,

Moving through Barriers, Lightening our Etheric Loads

We each carry energy with us until we are ready to process it or share it ,for individual, mutual or communal healing.  On the spiritual level, peoples auras and energy bodies shift and change.  Picking up pieces of memory from one another, from different places on the planet, or during astral travel.  We all learn, through uncovering  new levels of personal consciousness, in direct relation to our feelings surrounding ‘safety,’ and empowerment. There can be moments in Life in which we may find, we suddenly feel as though a physical load has been removed from our bodies, and yet there has been no removal of an actual cloth and metal frame back-pack, from our physical life.  Energy burdens, lessons, the connections we choose in support of one another, as well as the heavy karmic debris we work through in each lifetime, can have a very physical ‘feel’ of alleviation when we have mastered or completed a particular etheric lesson, pattern or shift.

Those who are highly sensitive, who feel comfortable, or continue to seek in their spiritual unfolding, become adept at the shedding and gathering, and eventually the dismissal of these energy loads as time and life allows. We all experience moments of heaviness on the etheric level, sometimes as we carry another person, or a room full of people or an entire family.  Yet we are all capable of moving through barriers or obstacles that feel as though they are physically present, to realize that everyone on their own experience of life, is entirely capable of carrying themselves. Even the brightest of spirits benefit from time in sacred space, contemplation and can go through long years of exploration on a deeper level that feels very heavy as they clear multiple lifetimes, and genetically transferred patterns passed down through multiple generations of ancestors.  

For highly sensitive Souls, there may come a time in which we may feel an impulse  to ‘see’ the truth of ourselves and our current reality, and yet feel as if we are blocked by a heavy energy from our past in this or previous lives.  Sometimes barriers that we ‘sense’ to our ability to perceive on multiple levels, are in place because they are keeping us safe in some way.  Opening to our gifts of clairvoyance, claircognition, clairaudience and clairsentience, may not need to happen instantaneously.  If we were to know all, or see all, at once however, on all of the other levels of self, we would require immense time, space and emotional safety to be ready to process and assimilate this knowledge.  An example of a barrier I ‘sensed’ in a close family relationship, as discussed in ‘Soul Evolution’ Chapter 2, related to a familiar theme many light workers carry of a past life memory of persecution.  To work through this energy block, I needed time and space and age to processes painful feelings of loss and betrayal attached to that lifetime. Yet when I had the sacred space needed, I was able to move through that resonance, through a clairvoyant dream. Quite quickly, I was then able to see the valuable beauty and lessons I could bring forward to lighten my own energy and the communal energy of so many through healing that aspect of soul memory. Yet for myself, time alone at a particular age, was what I had been ‘waiting for’ to lighten my personal load and ‘see’ on a new level.  Through patience and discipline in the spiritual practice that resonates most with us at this time, we all have the power to begin/continue to ‘see’ in new ways.  Yet we shift the energy instinctively at a speed that is healthful for our mental, emotional and physical integrations.

A Prayer/Affirmation/ Mantra that I have found useful in the past when seeking to move beyond personal or perceived barriers on the etheric level is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, Godd/ess of Creation, please help my Higher Self be amplified in conscious present at this time.  Please surround me in the protective light of the highest resonance, through which on Love may enter and all fear based vibrations are held at bay.  Please send me clear messages through feelings, sight, sound and spontaneous understanding surrounding {describe relationship/situation/perceived barrier} I ask that all karmic debris be cleared in the most gentle manner for my personal sense of Empowerment and healing at this time. Please send empowering light through the Guardian Angels of those who effect me at this time, so that they too, may remember they have choices for personal well being and knowledge.  I am willing and ready to Heal in the ways that I need, and to share messages of healing with others through dedication to my own authenticity and unfolding.  Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

Every person on the planet is a powerful healer in their own right. We all have the power to  shift in consciousness personally.  We all have the power to encourage others to seek personal awareness, empowerment and unfolding.  It is okay to acknowledge that paths we take may differ from those we Love, have loved or will love in the future.  To support their personal speed for enlightenment, or seeking new levels of consciousness.  Through the wheel of time, the many lifetimes we may choose to cycle through, we will all have multiple opportunities to ‘lighten’ our personal spiritual loads, to move beyond barriers on each level of being and to offer a helping hand to another.  Just as given time, water flowing  changes the shape of rocks and stones irrevocably, so too do lives lived in devotion to authentic being, change the experience of the following lifetimes, of the children whom carry the familial genetic code that follows, and to a world that is slow, slowly evolving with Compassion and Potential ever day.  

With patience for ourselves and one another,

With light,

Will and the Word

Energy healers, shamans, medicine people, light workers, and the teachers of many ancient spiritual mysteries, were aware of the power of intent and Personal Will.
Through my clairvoyant perceptions, the Law of Free Will when utilized, looks like strands of energy woven together that surrounds each individual. When able to harness our core essence, and project it outwards into such a light web, we create a safety net and personal boundary framework to filter out that which we are not willing to attract, and to amplify and welcome energy one has chosen to draw towards the self and into the Soul Path.
Through a belief in free will, we are able to choose different pathways, renegotiate said pathway, turn around and climb a few stairs to a new trail, or meander in any direction along our Soul Path. The concept of ‘The Law of Free Will’ is a popular term in current spiritual teachings. The law of Free Will dictates that in our current incarnations, we have multiple potentials for making a wide variety of choices that bring us closer to, or further away from, our core resonance and Divine gifts.

Willpower is a very real tool for etheric levels of creation. If one has a strong connection to ones core, the ‘Will’ broadcasts an equally strong framework/web/ safety net of all that which one has chosen or continues to choose in the future. The words that we think or choose to voice have as much power as we give them. For example, we can infuse the words ‘I Love You’ with incredible energy and power to change another perceptions of the light that is offered them the manifest universe. When we make a conscious choice, and give voice through prayer in our minds/hearts, written word, or speaking out loud, we create an energy field that honours that choice. Perhaps it will take an individual years of practice to connect with their internal power source, their core essence, or perhaps a person will incarnate with intuitive trust in utilizing this will. It is through directing our Will that we may choose to learn in a new way, to navigate massive life changes with struggle or harmony. For example, a pattern of repeating words in our head, whether in self support or criticism, clearly emits on the etheric level, and often manifests as a self fulfilling prophecy either for positive or negative manifestation and attraction.

To maintain the power of the framework we have set, we can choose to maintain commitment of personal will whenever thoughts or challenges, surrounding a choice surface. A person could for example choose to draw upon their core essence, and the power source of the divine networked of lIght, God/dess, to create a framework of ‘I will only attract positive opportunities for career/relationship/personal health development.’ The power of this statement relays on the power of the persons personal Will to build the framework that filters or amplifies. The framework is supported by the actions that also support each opportunity for growth.

For those who seek to identify current patterns, to renegotiate energy exchange and to voice their personal Will through words of power, I first allow my senses to unfold and to visualize myself within a pillar of white light. (White light is a powerful way to hold all external energy at bay, while the internal self re-configures and grounds into empowered being.) Once incased in white light, through the power of Will one can use a prayer/mantra/affirmation such as this:

“I call on the Divine Source to infuse my being with clarity and wisdom. To identify the patterns of manifestation, personal self worth and potential that I carry within my subconscious and conscious being. Please send the light of Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through fear based self fulfilling prophecies, so that more space is available in my energy body to be infused with empowered light. I am ready to grow and will approach this growth with courage and resilience. Thank you God/dess for guiding my new levels of awareness in a healthful and easily assimilated manner, and for opening new levels of consciousness through clairvoyance, clairaudiance, claircognition and clairsentience that remind me of all of the choices I may Freely make. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

We are each asked to clearly identify the current patterns and energy field we are broadcasting on a deep level. Do we truly believe we deserve to fail due to circumstances in adolescence or previous decades? Do we choose to take the steps towards our ultimate goals through struggle, with the will to persevere? Do we actually allow our true sense of personal Power, our Will, to be present in all of our decision making? Or are we giving our personal power away to an external force, another person, or self destructive familiar pattern?

What do we each ‘see’ or ‘feel’ is revealed through this devotion of energy and focus to truly perceiving our current life choices? What empowered aspects of self do we now choose to honour or courageously step forward towards? Ancient cultures fostered dreamers, those who could see beyond the physical, to the potential of what had been, could be or might be through the Will and focus of individuals or the masses. What does our individual heightened awareness allow us to Dream for humanity as a whole?
We are all powerful beings, especially when we give ourselves permission to trust the incredible power of our core self, and to direct this with our Free Will to affect personal and cosmic change.

May we each remember to be powerful,
with light,

*Fostering imagination and expansive thought can be a powerful tool towards self empowerment as an energy worker. I was battling my way through adolescence towards elf acceptance, I loved to visit the walls of books one of my siblings had amassed. From floor to ceiling, shelves held the precious colourful escape, many highly sensitive individuals seek when attempting to synthesis their multi-dimensional perceptions with the current culturally accepted ‘world’. Fantasy books are filled with gems of wisdom; energy work, commitment to a heroines or hero’s quest towards personal enlightenment, struggle, loss, colour and magical spirit guides in the forms of mythical creatures and landscapes. The phrase “The Will and the Word’ often appears in the delightful fantasy series ‘The Belgariad’ by David Eddings.

Awakening to the Art of Letting Go

I often think of life as an experience of gathering tools. Challenge, heartbreak, euphoria and Grace flowing through and around us. It is in the times in life in which new tools must be unearthed that we can gain some of our greatest capacity as light beings, Soul’s, having a human incarnation. We do not forge these so called tools, the prayerful spiritual, or physical, mental, or emotional manners of navigating reality by having a perfectly ‘ease-filled’ life. In life changing cycles, we may find that our previous manner of navigating has become inadequate and that our core self is seeking reveal an expanded level of consciousness. We may find that we are holding to tightly to tools that have worked in the past to help us regain a semblance of security or understanding.

We become more empowered humans when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge where we are truly ‘feeling’ and existing in the course of our life. We may have long years of self doubt, that finally ebb away with the changing of seasons, into a more peaceful or joyous experience. We may have reoccurring life themes, similar relationships that we recreate over and over, as the tools we seek to finally unearth within us need fine tuning. All of it is valuable. The times we felt we let ourselves or others down, the times we offered help or kindness, and hold close in our heart. It is all the grand experience of incarnated life.

When a person is in the midst of a new phase, a tool box building phase, it is spiritually normal to feel as if the receptive quality one is most familiar with has ‘stalled’. The clairvoyant may feel as thought they are having difficulty ‘seeing’. The clairaudient may develop a very physical ringing in their ears. The clairsentient may feel numb to reception of empathetic information. And the claircogniziant may wonder where all of their inspired, problem solving ideas have disappeared too.

During these times, we are asked to be extremely gentle and kind with ourselves. To allow that sometimes, in a transition, during an integration period of a new level of being or consciousness, the changes occurring on the spiritual or etheric level are so momentously large, that we will ‘re-boot’ so to speak with an entirely new operating system, and perception of this life.
For those that are currently feeling as though the compass that was guiding them has disappeared, I offer this prayer/affirmation/mantra:

“Dear God/ess, Sacred Earth and Divine Source, please help me to feel connected to this planet and myself. Even as a seed cracks wide, and pushes towards the light, please help me to feel that my current stage of growth is being guided by my higher Self, the Divine Source and my gifts for this Soul Path. Thank you for helping me feel the wisdom carried through the wind, of far off places, of other people that grow and evolve, even as I endeavour to do so. Thank you for helping my feet feel the warmth and the power of the soil beneath my feet, to remind me that I am rooted and safe. Thank you for helping me feel the light of the sun, mirroring the life force and fire I carry in my being, and for bringing the healing waters, whether through rain, or tears, or a flowing river to teach me to let go of that which I no longer need to carry. Thank you, Amen, Om, Aho.”

After saying, or thinking this prayer, or a version like it, that resonates with us each at this time, we are invited by the Divine Source to truly, deeply, Let Go. Let go of our expectations of perfection, or timelines, or self imposed manners of being devoted, or caring ‘enough,’ of control, grief or fear or insecurity. Let it all go, like a gently flowing river, or an effortless waterfall that plummets through space. Sometimes, when we allow ourselves a few minutes without holding tightly, we are able to discover the vast space within us filling up with new levels of Divine Source, of colour, light, nourishment, Peace or personal understanding for what can be most healthy/healing for us next.

I can remember that during travels around the globe, I would often return to my home town and feel like a completely ‘different’ person, from the woman I had been six months beforehand. Being immersed in foreign cultures and landscapes, from the food and languages I didn’t recognize, the manner of living that was so entirely different from the western culture, something would flower within my being, and my perception of life at ‘home’ would be irrevocably different. I did not always feel like my previous tools were ‘enough’ for each situation I encountered, but I had deep faith that I could forge, build and uncover new tools each time. I practiced the Art of Letting Go of preconceived ideologies, identity and coping. These shifts of consciousness helped me to become the woman I am, the one who can offer a gentle word of encouragement to others while they go through transformative experiences, rebirths, challenges or euphoric joy. We all can choose to continue to embrace the growth and development of healthy tools this wondrous life offers. To feel sorrow, or joy, or anger, or fear, or wonder or awe or Love, and to learn more. We never stop learning, even with our final breaths in these sensitive physical bodies, I truly believe, we learn once more, a new level, understanding and perspective on our Soul’s journey.

May we each feel the blossoming of spring, and find the patience we need through each new lesson of self, for deeper levels of Compassionate Being.

with light,
Kamia

The Strongest Version of ‘Me’ Asks for Help

I recently taught a writers workshop in which I asked participants to finish the sentence/thought ‘The Strongest Version of Me….” The answers were diverse, remarkable, and poignant. The example I used for my own strongest version, was to discuss the theory that the strongest version of ‘self’ is not an isolated individual, but rather a self that is willing to seek assistance and identify what aspects of friends, family, community, or spiritual support are needed to affect positive change. Identifying that we are in need of assistance does not make us weak or a burden to others, rather it makes us strong, willing to heal, and balanced in self awareness.

On the physical reality this can translate to asking friends or loved ones, or health/wellness professionals to offer a helping hand in thought, action, or emotional encouragement. On the spiritual plane the gift of my clairvoyance allows me to foster awareness of the threads, ribbons and ropes of light that emanate outwards from each individual and connect us to the wider world. Asking for help on the spiritual plane, sends streams of light between individuals and the divine Source.

In the etheric reality I am constantly  ‘asking for assistance’. I attribute this mainly to my own clairvoyant awareness of the etheric reality, and the constant presence of angels, ascended masters, ancestors, fairies, and the Divine I ‘feel’ connected to. I also attribute it to practice and having had someone in my life who lead by example. My mom used to ask her angels to provide the perfect parking place when we went grocery shopping, I used to giggle, then squeal in delight, as invariably, she always found a place directly in front of the door. It was a small matter, to find parking, in the larger scheme of life and the challenges we each face. Yet, if we each can find the good humor to ask for assistance during the simple things, we are better prepared to call for etheric support and assistance during the times in our life where challenges feel insurmountable, grief all encompassing, and isolation from the Divine Love of the universe.IMG_1322

Great or small, the challenges we each overcome daily and throughout our life path, it is through allowing ourselves to seek ‘help’ from physical, emotional, mental and spiritual sources, that we are better able to survive and overcome the challenges.

Many people on the planet are being currently ‘asked’ by their higher selves to commit to a life path with a resonance of “I am worthy.” This can manifest as a willingness to feel worthy for giving and receiving Love, Joy, Abundance, Compassion, and Divine Light. When we choose to embrace a personal life path that celebrates these attributes, massive life changes often occur. For example, people who heal the aspects on the emotional or spiritual level connected to feelings of worthiness for Love, will attract Soul Mate relationships and experience fertility in their lives through career opportunities, pregnancy, or birthing of dreams. People who heal aspects of themselves surrounding worthiness for experiencing Compassion, transform their world view for how they contribute and are vital, needed, and appreciated in the greater world and cosmic reality at large. Though we each will have different levels of fear or karma surrounding our beliefs of self worthiness, we can seek help, assistance and support from but the physical reality and the spiritual as we courageously grow in each direction.12923155_1025759994125922_1666709770043264950_n

On the spiritual level I have experienced incredible levels of healing and awakening through prayer, affirmation and mantra. Two of my favorite prayers/affirmations include:

For Compassion

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send the healing light of Jesus and Quan Yin to help me feel more Compassion towards myself and every living being. Please help me to receive Compassion, so that I am better able to share it with others. I ask that I receive clear messages, images and feelings, that allow me to identify andy ego based patterns that I can release to allow for a greater connection to the Divine within me, and the world and cosmos at large.Thank You, Amen and OM”

For Love

“Dear God/dess, Divine Light Source, please help me to feel connected to the resonance of Divine Love. Please send the Archangels most suited to working alongside my life path, to help me in removing fear or karma blocking this reception and awareness of Love. I ask that the fairy kingdom send me helpers to attract people, animals and plants into my life that will share and receive only the purest Love with me. Thank you for assistance on every level, Amen, OM and Aho.”

On the pathways of personal empowerment, transformation, and self actualization, we can all inspire support and contribute to one another’s journey. To do this, sometimes it requires the ‘strength of self’ to ask for help. In whatever capacity we are all growing, through connections to one another we become a wave of healing and light that moves across the planet.

May we each feel strong, supported, connected and loved at this time.

With light and respect for your journey,

Our Relationship To Time and Self Empowerment

I’ve been thinking allot lately about Time. The time that we allow ourselves to pursue our deepest dreams, the time we return to in an instant of memory or inspiration, the perception of self and time that can shift during an epiphany that creates more self awareness in an instant that in the previous full year. What is one’s relationship to time, and how does it empower or disempower us?

As a soul that remembers several previous lifetimes, I carry around a belief about time that creates an expansive landscape of possibility and wonder in my life. As I see the world evolve, shift and change, as I witness people exploring their own personal soul path, and ways of growing, opening, receiving and sharing their personal light, I feel as though Time offers gifts of limitless potential. On days where I am devoted to the absolute moment, such as moving houses this previous week, I notice the way concepts of time that we each carry, effect us all. Some concepts are filled with joy, while others such as ‘there isn’t enough time for …..’ thought patterns, radiate outwards manifesting less potential for joy. A powerful practice to shift our personal relationship with our perception of time, is to make a list of the top five priorities one’s deepest self carries.

Mine is something like:

Share Compassion

Elevate the vibration towards Divine Love

Be honest about who I am, and encourage others to be honest and empowered

Celebrate this beautiful Earth

Nurture Children

Having a conversation with the self, through honoring the deepest yearning of the spirit is an empowering act. There are the superficial tasks we will often ‘think’ of as we consider the allotment of time and priorities for our day, but when given the opportunity to truly connect with the ‘self’ on a deeper level, the priorities will shift. We can still achieve our tasks, our responsibilities, and our time commitments, yet by carrying forward a firmer understanding of what we truly wish to share and experience with the world, the passage of time throughout the day, and the awareness of the world on a grander scale, is made possible. What are the ways that familiar patterns with a fearful vibration are effecting one’s perception of time? Free Will allows us each to recognize and shift away from such patterns.

An affirmation/prayer that I have found useful for centering my awareness is:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, help me to see the ways in which my Soul is infinite, and my current lifespan on the planet is filled with opportunities for me to speak my Truth, make choices that resonate with my Soul Path, and allow me to share all of the gifts I have brought forward for connecting, encouraging and manifesting Peace with others. I ask that any Angelic light rays, previous life memories, ascended master messages, or encouragement from guides and/or the fairy kingdom assist me at this time in making space for my deepest priorities in this life. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

If there is a yearning, a desire for change, an intuitive flash, or a self nurturing practice that arises in the mind after such an affirmation has been repeated, take action. What is the movement, shift, choice or awareness that can be brought forward to begin each day in a manner that resonates with the ‘core’ of one’s spirit? Perhaps it is greeting the morning with sound such as mantra, singing, or music and gentleness, or through movement in nature. Perhaps it is seeing relationships with others in a new way, or viewing the expanse of ones life with a deeper sense of patience, focus and humor. Perhaps it is as simple as slowing the breathing, and taking eight deep slow breaths to set the tone for a physical pattern based on peace. In whatever manner our relationship to Time and self manifest, let it be through an active awareness that renegotiates perceptions and personal empowerment, to establish a more Joy filled life. Everyone deserves to experience Joy.

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Etheric Alignment to Remove Fear or Insomnia

On the etheric level, my ‘vision’ of the world, is one in which two separate earths are coexisting, and overlying across one another. On one image, is an energy globe that stretches and twists with different levels of energy of the lower frequencies, rolling against one another like muddy debris being tossed through the air. The second image is of a globe of light, soft colors of gold, pinks and blues, all swirling gently in a spiral together. The two images exist simultaneously, yet with each determination a person makes to speak, act, and live from a place of Divine Love, the soft colors spread out, enfold a piece of the muddy energy, and work to assimilate the energy of the debris and raise its frequency to something shining like a crystal.

For people who have been experiencing a ‘shift’ in personal consciousness, or an ‘awakening’ of their ‘sixth sense’, this is a tumultuous feeling time, where sleep can feel elusive or challenging, and be akin to insomnia. The ‘pull’ of the opposing energies can leave one feeling as though the adrenal glands are constantly firing adrenalin, as if a one is constantly ready to run up a mountain rather than relax into sleep. Feverish sleeps, as well as semi- conscious, not quite sleeping, but ‘kind-of-sleeping’ can also occur.

Sleep brings us many gifts, and for the highly sensitive, these gifts can be very clear recollections of all that was experienced when sleeping. The vivid dream states that most highly sensitive individuals enter when balanced, are sometimes a combination between ‘dreaming’ and ‘soul travel’. Astral projection between different dimensional realities can manifest in more than one way. A retention of ones current incarnations consciousness will accompany many who are astrally traveling across the earth, and through to different levels of the energy reality. Some people will visit the dimensions of ‘fairy,’ the realm that exist some closely with our own. Others will visit places such as ‘shambala’, and receive teachings from ascended masters. Others still will have vivid dreams that bring them in contact with ancestors, guardians from their spirits family, with advice, comfort, healing messages and guidance. Still, other vivid dreams can occur, in which the spirit is immersed in a learning opportunity that combines frequencies the earth is currently moving towards, and those that are being shed at this time.

To acknowledge the challenges that may be blocking some peoples current sleep patterns, and find a way to re-infuse the body with much needed rest, as well as to be navigating the energy realities, I offer these tools:

*Fresh air is incredibly important at this time. The air carries on it the energy resonance of all that has been interacting with the wind. The trees, the plants, the animals, the water, the sunlight, all come with the cleansing wind. When possible sleep with fresh air. If not possible, claim at least five minutes a day, outside, breathing deeply with intention. Visualize the energy of the element one is most drawn to at this time. Is it a waterfall with light radiating through it to cast a rainbow? Is it the snowy top of a mountain peak, or the lush green jungle where flowers bloom in abundance? What is the element of nature that could bring gifts of renewal? Visualize with each inhalation, this element is entering the body with the breath, and the life force of the place, like tiny sparkles of gold or silver are spreading out through the cells an self.

*Epsom salts or sea salts offer the gift of removal of lower energies and are readily available in bulk purchase. Before sleeping, mix a generous handful in a bowl and place either the hands or the feet into the water. Visualize any challenging encounters, lower energies or hurtful feelings experienced during the day, being pulled out of the feet or hands, into the water. The body on the physical level releases toxins into the salt bath, while on the etheric and emotional level, the salts and water have an elevated ‘cleansing’ frequency.

*Consider a nightly affirmation/prayer such as this one:

“Dear God/dess of creation, ascended masters working alongside me at this time, and archangels who wish to bring forth blessings, please guide me to release on all levels, any negativity, lower vibrations or fear that is effecting my ability to receive restful sleep. Please send me clear messages throughout the day, for what I can do that aligns my body, mind, heart and spirit, with my best Divine health. I ask that Archangels Micheal and Ariel, and Shiva assist me in connecting to the personal courage and truth I am seeking at this time, for my personal evolution of Love, Peace, and Compassion. Please send light to my loved ones, as they navigate their own personal changes, and help me encourage them in whatever way would be most helpful at this time, for rejuvenation, strength and kindness. Thank you, Amen, Om, an Aho.”

The tools provided here are simple. Just as the act of falling asleep, receiving cellular regeneration and a renewal of life force, should be simple. Yet in this time, of cosmic shifting, we are often distracted by daily tasks and patterns that take our awareness away from the simplicity of life. Yet, all that we experience, has the potential to flow through, around and with us in a positive manner. Like a kaleidoscope of soft colors and light, all swirling in the same direction, we are able to synthesize and align our beings for greater restful, empowered consciousness.  From this place of alignment, when we do enter the ‘dream state’, the experiences we have, the energy we shed, can add to our sense of personal empowerment.

We all deserve to be in alignment with our own Divine health. Wishing everyone the peace of balanced sleep.

With light and respect for your journey,

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.

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
