Simple Pleasures, Celebrating this Life

Life is such a gift. A balanced spiritually devout being is not asked by the Divine to reject the physical world or the body that houses us. To fully bring forth the gifts we are each carrying, we are asked to make peace and practice love within the body we inhabit. We each carry intuitive knowledge of what the ‘wild self,’ the essence that is our purest form, is craving for celebratory Joy. Our energy bodies, vast, expansive and carrying the wisdom from thousands of reincarnated lives, are offered Balance through this cycle of life, with both the deep sorrows and grief we can survive, counterposed by the absolute delight in being alive these bodies and incarnated selves are capable of experiencing. Our wild selves may need serious unleashing, yelling in the forest, or pounding at top speed up a mountain, But sometimes that intuitive voice, that yearning to let go, and unfold the wings we are each carrying, can be as sweet and simple as sunlight on our upturned faces or feeling the soft petals of a flower as our fingers trail through a garden; our Souls way of physically, mentally and emotionally honouring a longing, an impetus for change, for radiance and colour and a saturation of the precious nectar of life. We can feel equal delight from a meditation in which we are connected with our soul groups on the spiritual plane, to the delight that is possible when our toes curl in grass, or sand, or mud. Feeling the power in our arms when we hold someone close, sharing the rhythm of one another’s heart beats connects many levels of being with the beauty and joy of this life.

When was the last time we each gave ourselves permission to experience a moment with joy and total abandon? The restraints of social normalcy, ego based ‘should’s’ and repression of our personal passion, thrown out the window, while we spun in reckless self expression? There is such joy in ‘feeling’. I feel with my senses in so many ways and carry deep gratitude for those who request assistance on the etheric level, through Certified Angel Card Readings ™. Yet, if I am not ‘present’ within my body and self, I have less connection to etheric power to bring forward into facilitating healing, or to any area of my life.

When I seek to find a way to be more ‘connected ‘ to the essence of both spiritual light, and incarnated abundance, I retreat into a silent manner of being, whether outside or in a pool of sunlight within doors. Sitting, I lengthen my spine and take eight deep breathes. Placing hands over top of my navel, plans facing up for reception, or downwards for grounding.  A prayer/affirmation that I have found useful is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to clearly identify the ways in which my purest essence of self is asking to be expressed, acknowledged and celebrated at this time. Please send my the assistance of Archangel Micheal to cut through any chords of fear that are blocking my receptivity to clearly perceiving the messages my Higher Self and intuitive wisdom wish to share at this time. Thank you, Amen, Aho, and OM.”

The essence of self may ask to shed layers of energy, it may wish to shout into the woods, or into a pillow. It may need to cheer enthusiastically or sing at top volume in outrageous, colourful delight. Or, it may need to place the emotional burdens of carrying those that one loves, down onto the earth and to again trust that the Divine Source is capable of cradling us all while we are learning to navigate letting go, moving forward and rediscovering our individual passions for this life. Sometimes it takes a devotion of time and energy, a promise we choose to make to ourselves, after or before all of the household, professional and family responsibilities have been managed for the day, and we escape for solitary and balancing time, a simple practice such as letting our hair flow in the wind beneath a passionate apricot and nectarine toned sunset. Somedays being connected can manifest in the gentle inspiration for changing the colours that we habitually wear. For the highly sensitive, colour and texture effect our levels of receptivity and sense of ‘belonging’ with the divine. Other days the messages may be more intense, asking for difficult conversations to occur between ourselves and our inner union of Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities, or with another person who has an impact on our well being. During those times, we each have the capacity to identify that change, growth, transformation and intuitive wisdom can release a myriad array of emotions. Yet, when we give ourselves and others permission to express emotion, we honour that we each deserve emotional health.

In what ever capacity, we are each drawn to connecting, celebration and honouring the different levels of ‘self’ we each have, may we do so with boldness, colour and delight. For truly, this life, for all that it brings during times of despair, offerings us equal measure to choose to be present with Joy, with delight and with the simple pleasures of being incarnated and alive during this time of momentous potential for change and higher consciousness.

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
