Balance for Empathic and Highly Sensitive Beings

When we allow the physical to express itself, energy is transmuted and released, patterns can be changed, and empowerment harnessed.-2

Through time immemorial, many people have existed and flourished with an acceptance and development of their gifts for heightened sensitivities.

IMG_6125

In western culture there is a current cultural pattern that influences many for suppressing their particular gifts and awareness of the greater interconnectedness of all life, through time and space. This vein of energy can often strongly impact people during adolescence and childhood if they are not receiving encouragement for exploring the ways in which they ‘feel’ (clairsentience), ‘see’ (clairvoyance), ‘hear’ (clairaudience) or ‘spontaneously understand’ (claircognition), the world around themselves.

As a highly sensitive individual, it was during the years in which I devoted time and energy to self acceptance and exploration of my particular sensitivities that I began to feel truly connected to the world at large, people surrounding the planet, and the Joy and Love this human experience offers us each. Heightened sensitivity can bring about wide ranges of emotional experience. If we acknowledge the absolute beauty of this world, we will also be asked to acknowledge the opposite aspects, the life and death and rebirth, the pain or sorrow or grief. A wider range of emotional experience in relationship to the world at large, is often an indicator of a spiritually sensitive energy body.  When tragedy occurs on the planet, for example, we may be called, like beacons of light, to illuminate the pathways that Souls may travel as they transition back into light bodies. As a spiritual Guide for Souls moving from one level of being into the next, can be an underdeveloped gift that many carry in western culture. Other highly sensitive spiritual open individuals, may feel that they have a purpose for infusing places and groups of people on the planet with Love, that their waking life is filled with prayers for those on the planet who are struggling.  Others still may feel that their empathy guides them to take physical action, to offer support, aid, volunteering or the creation of non-profit organizations.  Their spiritual offerings and physical action, a direct link between their Soul Purpose and this and previous lifetimes.  Being a bridge between worlds can have a taxing effect on many levels. The practice of re-grounding through connection with the earth-physical reality and ones self is often a vital aspect of being for the highly sensitive. Spiritual travel, through the astral body, whether in meditation, subconscious movement, or during sleep like states, are some of the ways in which we can be moving through different levels of reality to help align, guide, assist or brighten the light connections of the manifest universe.
Through each level of movement or experience, the gift that this Life continuously offers us, it to return and be fully present in our physical selves, on this beautiful Earth. Whether in a simple garden, or out exploring a wild space, our intuitive wisdom will guide us each to the landscapes that help us feel anchored and grounded into our present lifetimes and physical bodies. Snow for example, is a softening on the etheric level, a dampening and purifying for toxic or fearful vibrations.  People refer to a fresh snowfall as ‘a blanket of snow’ and on the energy level, this is also very true, as the frozen water helps to calm and let sleep, all that which is ready to transform, grow and rebirth when the needed time and seasons have passed.

For those who are living and sharing light in city scape, or a climate that at this time does not offer the silence and stillness of freshly fallen snow, please join me for a gentle meditative moment in some life-force renewing, winter woods:

 

For those that do not have access to video streaming a simple version of this prayer is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to lay the heavy burdens of emotional energy that I have been carrying, from both myself and others, onto the soft Earth.  Please help me to release this heaviness so that the energy may transform. I am willing to trust that as the seasons shift on this planet, so to will my perception, openness and grace, continue to grow and evolve.  Thank you for sending me clear messages, guidance and Peace through the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fair Kingdom and Spirit Guides that are working alongside me at this time, and thank you for helping me feel connected to this planet, my current lifetime, and all of the Love that is available in this manifest universe.  Amen, Om and Aho.”

May we each feel the expansiveness of Soul and Divine Source (God/dess), as well as the blessings of physical being on this wondrous planet.

With light,

“Near the base of the Himalayas I had a very powerful dream. During an astral projection, I followed the pathway of the light chord that connects my present incarnation up through the stars to where my greater Soul, and the Light Beings with whom it works, were weaving light. The ‘weaving’ was a joint intentional creation of energy and opportunity being spun together by a balanced group of high vibrational beings. These beings had agreed to work together to send Light and energy down toward the Earth and into the conscious or subconscious minds to the Souls presently incarnated. I perceived the figures as seated in a lotus position, because, I believe, it would be an easily interpreted image for a human to return with. They were surrounded by stars and looked down into a large pool of light. The stars stretched across the sky and all sides of the figures including beneath their suspended forms and the light pool. Surrounding them, translucent with the stars shining through, were similar shapes of the Himalayas. I as a human currently in the Himalayas, was made to feel safe although I was witnessing something far vaster than my human consciousness experienced on the physical plane.

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?

For further tools for discernment visit: Boundaries and Personal Power

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,
Be Love

Solstice, December 21st

During the longest night of the year, when the stars and snow reflect one another, and if we are graced with the light of the moon, a gentle glow infuses the spaces between earth and sky, I like to say a prayer to release the past year and to invite in the Light of the returning sun.

For those who feel drawn to honouring this cycle of rebirthing the light in such a way, I share a version of my yearly prayer:

“Dear God/dess, dual aspects, soft darkness and unfolding light, please help us find our way through each level of being.

Thank you for the lessons and growth we have each been navigating in the darkness of subconscious self, and thank you for the opportunity to guide ourselves and others with deeper levels of compassion this growth has afforded.

Please bless those that we love, and those that challenge us, with angelic protection and assistance as they navigate their own darkness, and pathways.

Please help us to see all of the Beauty we are capable of inviting into our lives as the Light returns with this shift of seasons, and bring forth the Abundance we carry within, for the betterment of this world as a whole.

Thank you for blessing the relationships in our lives with acceptance and grace, and for bringing Love to those who are searching to share and receive it.
With the help of the Archangels, Ascended Masters, Fairy Kingdom, Ancestors and Spirit Guides, may we receive and share with gratitude the return of Light, and the lengthening daylight hours, with renewed faith that through each cycle, we will find the courage and strength needed to navigate this life. Amen, OM and Aho.”

Thank you for all the ways you shine, in the spirit world, like distant stars through the darkest night’s sky, sharing hope with one another.

with light,
Kamia

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.

with light and respect for your journey,

Will Power and the Internal Flame

Words have power. The power that we give them when we use them with consciousness, the power that they carry when they are spoken or written or thought and sent as prayers. There are moments when we hear, read, or write particular words during out lifetime, and in the moment, we have a visceral reaction, as if there is a piece of our spirit that is returning ‘home’ to a greater understanding of our place in the grand cosmos and our experience of ‘life’.

With focus and intention, we can harness the resonance of a word, of our own divine will, and activate the powerful tool of being present, aware and intentional in the ways in which we direct our life force and are effected on a energy level by the use of words. What are the words of self Love, Divine connection, Soul Purpose commitment and Peace we each have inside of us, waiting to be birthed?

There is a particular power shift when we discover the true measure of our own Free Will. The ability to discern and activate light expansion and direct the course of our lives through the choices we make and the parameters we consciously create. One of the most powerful sayings that I use, and share with others is the simple practice of saying aloud

“There is only space for Light in this space.”

I have used this saying during times where I felt in danger, I have used it to clear the energy in a home, and I have often used it as I approached a scenario or conversation in which there is fear based energy present. Through the power of intention and direct invocation of the Law of Free Will, there is an etheric surge of energy that creates a lattice of energy, like a net, web or wall, that diffuses all lower vibrations and allows for only the highest vibrations of love, compassion, truth and integrity to be present. This invocation of focused intention is so powerful, that it can literally transform the physical reality, surrounding one. The mental level of awareness also shifts with this intention, allowing for a heightened ability to creatively problem solve, see solutions and discern opportunities for safely navigating people, places and experiences. When I use the words, I often visualize the light of Archangel Micheal like a fiery white, and blue flame, surrounding my body and self, burning through fearful thoughts and self doubt. The focus of this visualization the physical words being spoken, all anchor my will and intention in a manner that eliminates self doubt and ego based distractions. We all experience fear on different levels. The brighter the receptive quality a person carries for broadcasting light into this present reality, the more likely they will be to create several fearful circumstances on one of the levels, physical, mental, emotional or spiritual that offers opportunities to connect with and strengthen their will. The challenges that we each face and encounter are forging us into stronger, more competent beings when we approach or navigate them with Faith that we can ultimately emerge with greater tools, knowledge and personal wisdom.

During times in life when I have waged spiritual, emotional or mental battles for my own growth, it is in the power of the simplest words, spoken, thought and affirmed that I have broken through the fear based patterns. The internal battles we wage can be all consuming. As if we have walked or thrown ourselves into the metaphorical pit of fire. Yet, in this fire, in the light that can be channeled as the fiery sword energy of Archangel Micheal who cuts away disempowerment and fear, or the power of the goddess energy Durga, who cuts through illusions and fear, we are able to emerge as the distilled, amplified version of Self we each can choose to be. When we make a conscious choice to honor our own unique gifts, in the aspects of diving into our own psyche and perceptions, and navigating a spiritual connection that can act as a rope of light, an anchor and radiant energy source to our present incarnation, we will be tested in accordance with the power of our will. No sooner have we set an intention to make a change, or allow growth, then previous lessons or larger lessons that reflect this choice will present themselves before us. For example we may choose to eliminate a toxic substance from our diet, only to then create three different social circumstances in which this substance is available and offered. Our will and our faith in our own worthiness to heal, grow and implement self and divine Love is tested. Did we make a commitment to self with the strength of focus that originates from a place of our ultimate core resonance? And if so, do we allow this determination to expand and pulse out into the physical world, a fuel source of Divine Will that changes our physical reality and allows us to walk away from unhealthy patterns? Or did we make a choice with only a half-hearted determination of will? One that still has fear based self doubt attached to it? By discerning our own pathways of consciousness, and true motivation for patterns and choices we activate empowerment.

thumbnail_IMG_2669

One of the prayers that I have used to bring a deeper level of self awareness into directing my free will and determinations is:

“Dear God/dess Force of Creation, please amplify my light, and connection to my Higher Self so that I can easily discern the ways in which I am able to empower myself to be True to my Soul Purpose and Path. I ask that all lower vibrations of self-doubt, insecurities and mistrust, in my own Divine Power, be removed with the assistance of the warrior/ess energy of Archangel Micheal and Durga. I ask that I release fearful imprinting form this and previous lifetimes so that I may implement and live as a conduit of Divine Love, Peace and Joy. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

What light do we all carry from the beginning of our Soul’s journey through time, that we are seeking to expand at this time in the present? Through the direction of willpower, we are responsible for giving this energy the space, respect and activation. We are all powerful in our expression of the Divine Light that connects all living beings. We choose to dampen or strengthen this light every day.

May the light within you grow, expand and break free of constrictions that have been placed upon it through this or previous lifetimes.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia
