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,

Choosing to Embrace Our Light

The light and the dark, or in other words, Love and Fear, are familiar terms that people often use to describe the clash or synthesis of two opposing forces. The radiant energy of the manifest reality and the cosmos at large flows around, through and with us in all ways during our physical experience as humans. When we shed our bodies, we return to this cosmic force, the energy that creates, and connects each Soul to the God/dess. During our earth experience, we are sensitive to the energy that moves around through and with us, each and every day. We may choose to ignore or honor this energy during each choice we make. The Law of Free Will allows us all to be choosing every day, through out the course of our present lives, will I create a synthesis of energy and self? Will I allow the common tide of emotion or energy around me to dictate the ways in which I live, love, or express my inner gifts?

Light workers carry a bountiful supply of enthusiasm, Joy, Love and light to share and shine at the world. Yet there will be countless times in which the two opposing energies, of fear and Love will swirl about each individual and ‘test’ their resolve to choose in their own, and the planets highest good. A Light worker is often highly sensitive to the emotions of others, and may spend a majority of their time seeking to please, placate, or make happy those around them, in an effort to have less intensity or anger directed their way. Yet, if that same Light worker devotes time and energy to honoring the strengths they carry for radiating joy, the people they attract into their lives, the opportunities for fulfilling love-based work, and self empowerment, multiply. A common misconception for many Light workers is to believe that through a sacrifice of selfhood, the world around them, becomes happier. This is the opposite energy that they incarnated to share. By being empowered with courage to teach others that they too deserve a joyful and fulfilling life, a Light worker carries the most alchemical magic, by first allowing themselves to be joyful. The most powerful tool I have learned in this life, for diverting fear based energy, is to truly ‘see’ that criticism,anger and fear are often an expression of another persons longing to be self confident, self loving, and self empowered to follow their dreams, and rediscover a vision they once carried for a new way of life. It can be painful and hard to witness and experience the rage, fear or frustrations of others on a mass scale,yet, by finding tools for remaining centered in our own personal power, we are able to see that just as there appears to be an unending cycle of fear, there is an infinite supply of Divine Love.IMG_1775

In nature, the waves of resonance from all living things, caress, infuse and saturate the magnetic,energetic, personal resonance of those who venture into the wild places, the green and colorful, pure water, fresh air spaces, this earth is so resplendent with. Yet the majority of the planet no longer sleeps beneath trees and stars, but in houses, and we often work, live, and run errands in buildings, across concrete, and travel in cars, buses and trains. Inside each place we are able to tune into the collective unconscious, the energy of those that surround us on a near and universal scale. We may find moments in nature, to saturate and recharge, where choices in life become more clear, just as our personal rhythms do, aligning with the earth’s natural energy. As a predominantly clairvoyant and sensitive person, I often ‘see’ energy like waves of color and light moving through or around a person’s experience. People can choose to allow the collective energy to either drain their personal essence of vital life force, or to attune themselves with a energizing, revitalizing empowering essence. The choices that we make during times in which we do not feel saturated and supported by light and love, are the ones that ‘temper,’ refine, and ultimately test the strength of our spirit. The moments when we are most afraid, and the ego-mind is shouting discouragement, and yet, we find that a glimmer of hope, or yearning for a deeper sense of joyful self, still manages to assert itself, and brings forth enough courage that we do choose to align with our Higher Self and Soul Path, are the choices that will often define the course of our lives.

The infinite supply is a network of light that extends through each human, all of nature, the cosmic reality and is inter-dimensional. We simply choose to be connected to our own light and the fear based feelings begin to dissipate through our powerful Will. Sometimes this willpower diffuses the lower vibrations most effectively by ‘remembering’ on a Soul level, that we are each strong, capable, and worthy of Love. A prayer that I have practiced in variations of, for moments in life in which I am asked to choose between continuing forward on a path of joy, or one of self repression is:

“Dear God/ess, please help me to connect with the ways in which I am strong, capable, and worthy of experiencing Divine Love and Joy in this life. Please send the Archangel Micheal to cut the chords of fear I have attached to me at this time, so that it is with a sense of personal and cosmic freedom that I choose the course of my life in this moment. I ask that Archangel Jophiel assist me in seeing the beauty that I carry, and its reflection in the many beautiful people and places on this planet. Please send the fairy kingdom to help me navigate my path on the physical reality, so that I connect with the people, places, the Soul Group with whom I can bring and share the most light, while feeling supported on my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”

May we each, in our capacity as Light workers, choose this day, and all days in our collective future, to honor the Divine Love we are capable of carrying, broadcasting, and amplifying in all ways.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Transformation with Archangels Haniel and Ariel

Peeling away the layers of that which we are ready to move beyond, creating space for unfurling of our ‘wings’ of light and expansive growth, it is healthful to feel connected to the earth as well as to our greater Souls.
With the assistance of archangel Ariel, we accept a communion with the earth, with nature and the earth spirits and fairies. Asking for assistance of archangel Haniel, we are able to perceive the higher resonance of our connection to the Divine. With this fostering of awareness of both the anchor of our physical beings and the light that fuels our transformations on this planet, we create a greater opportunity for equilibrium and positive changes in our own lives and the collective unconscious.
With gentleness for our own transformations, and that of the planet, I thank you for joining me.

with light,
Kamia

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.
