Unity Through Clarity of Self and Relationship

(This Blogpost was/is a Weekly Forecast for Aug 11th to Aug 18th that expanded)

Unity can be perceived and practiced in many different ways. We can find a unity of self through accepting the many levels of being we are currently working to assimilate into wholeness; the feelings we carry and the mental balance we seek to categorize or synthesize with our spiritual understanding.  We may find unity in physical movement that draws us completely into being present, our spiritual self relaxing into the meditation of ebb and flow, so that we experience the ecstasy of divine source and incarnated self.  We may feel unified in our understanding of one another’s  needs and dreams, in a common goal or prayer for the future.And yet, we may also find that to be unified int he self requires time and sacred space to be present fully with our own transformation, and that to do so requires etheric space from shared unity with others in certain ways.

Relationships shift as we each choose or do not choose to feel and share unification. Yet in this broadcasting or connective aspect of life, we are better suited to clearly identifying that which is Divinely healthful at this time, when we have boundaries that allow us to perceive our now experience, and then share through Clarity of personal light, with others. Many people on the planet are not raised to have a clear boundary of energy that separates them from the emotional, spiritual, mental and sometimes physical empathetic experience of the world at large.  As the many layers of being and manifest reality bombard the senses that one has either sought to block or dampen as a survival technique, the debris of many thousands of experiences can pile up like dust over our trust in the value of our particular receptive qualities. This multilayered karmic debris can feel uncomfortable or heavy, and without the proper tools of understanding, people  may seek to block their sensitivity in many ways depending on their life experience during formative years.  Some find dampening of reception in addictions of many kinds, yet actual Peace and relief that is sought for, can never truly be found without self acceptance and often hard work through healing. Cleaning and clearing allows us to stream in Divine Source and support for a rich understanding of that which unifies us as humans and sentient beings, that which is our individual learning experience and that which may be entirely another’s journey that we can send a prayer or a thoughtful action of support towards, yet do not need to experience in all ways ourselves.  We may Love a person who is currently in a self destructive cycle.  We may find that a cause, job, friendship or group we felt very passionately about has taught us all we needed at this time in our life and seek to move into a fresh focused state of personal evolution.  In shifting or changing focus, in wishing to move away from lessons or patterns that no longer serve our highest healthful good, we may feel the need for personal unification and communication with another on the Spirit Realm. If it I through shifting a relationship so that personal unification can occur, then here is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

There is a practice I have long found transformative, in which I ‘speak to the higher self’ of those I am currently working alongside, through challenges or seeking to better understand.  It is a simple practice that I offer this week to those whose growth may find it useful:

Out in Nature I visualize a globe of light surrounding my body and self, to filter out all lower vibrations of fear or anger, or distractions. (Visit “Boundaries and Personal Power from Soul Evolution for a more expanded explanation) From the globe of light, I ask for divine assistance in communicating with the greater Light body of the person I am working alongside,  and from within that globe I send out actually words, Love, forgiveness, communication in emotional release or encouragement, or whatever other aspect of being seeks to be clearer.  Whether there is a shift on the physical level immediately with the relationship, or whether there is simply an incredible sense of freedom and relief on the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects depends on the Free Will choices of both parties.  This is not a practice that controls another, and will afford no change unless done with an intention for the greatest healing and clearing for both parties concerned.  I Clean and Clear this way often, and am always so deeply grateful for the Love and depth of understanding the follow’s in my own consciousness and in the energy field I have been connecting to of another.  

“An affirmation and prayer I have found useful during many past-life relationship interactions:

“Dear Creator/God/dess, please help me to see clearly the ways in which a past life with this person is influencing our present interaction. Please send me clear dreams or messages to help me understand how we can mutually heal from the karma we have jointly created. Please send Archangel Michael to cut any chords of fear that attach us from this or any previous lifetimes so that only the light of Divine Love remains between us. I ask that healing on all levels occur at this time, and should our lives now take separate pathways, I ask that we do so with Angelic assistance and forgiveness on a Soul level. Please send the loving compassionate energy of Quan Yin, Archangel Raphael and Jesus to help us to individually and universally heal. Thank you. Amen. Om. Aho.”

Excerpt From: Kamia Shepherd. “Soul Evolution.” iBooks. 

May this week be a clarification of communication on the highest level of Love and Divine Source with heightened boundaries so that we share only that which we consciously seek to elevate on a universal scale for the highest good of ourselves and humanity and this sacred planet as a whole.

Amen, Om and Aho.

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.

An Expanded View Expands Consciousness

One of the greatest gifts any of us can experience, is to have the ability to ‘see’ beyond what is directly in front of us, and use our etheric perceptions for a ‘greater world view.’

Highly sensitive people act like beacons for other people still expanding their sensitivity. A highly sensitive energetic person will often have people and situations approach them that seek expression and clearing through the gifts of radiant etheric intensification the highly sensitive individual carries. In plain terms, if you are highly sensitive, other people may come around you to dump their emotions and energy, as you activate a clearing and detoxifying through your own resonance. Sometimes, these interactions can feel challenging or overwhelming. When this happens, a healthy tool is to verbalize and act on ones need for personal space, and alignment.

At times in life when we each experience challenges, despair, negativity or suffering, it is through an Expansion of View that we are often able to reignite our connection to personal power and the Divine. All people emit energy vibrations. And all people receive the vibrations of others. We are each at varying levels of consciousness and awareness in terms of our sensitivity to the reception and sharing of this etheric reality. When we seek time and space to foster self awareness and balance, we are emitting a frequency, a music so to speak, or a light combination, that draws to us people also seeking to find personal alignment. For example, during struggles with an interpersonal relationship, it is easy to see the ways in which another person directly effects our feelings. Yet, from an expanded view, from a place in which we have self empowered ourselves to step back and ‘see more,’ we may find that another persons experience has very little to do with us, and much more to do with the challenges, growth and learning their Soul and self are experiencing at this time. As a highly sensitive person, there can be times in life when encountering other peoples feelings that cascade forth, feels like entering a tidal wave or chaotic tornado. Yet, through meditation, yoga, and daily practices that bring us personal balanced, we are better able to discern a tidal wave of emotion or energy as it approaches us, and divert it through sending prayers for transformation and healing to the person emitting the frequency. In this manner, our ‘greater seeing’ allows us to empathize with other peoples personal struggles, and stay connected to our personal power through sharing compassion, encouragement and the gift of healthy boundaries. In this way we can share with others the gifts of empathy, compassion and encouragement, without feeling as though we are living out their struggles for them.

Visiting a place with rushing water can be a powerful tool for clearing the energy of others that we are carrying. I find it a powerful tool for prayer when I seek to encourage others along their path, or diffuse any lower vibrations that have been sent towards me. While near water, my expanded view allows for a vision of the world in which we are each flowing in our own directions, and each seeking to emit our own unique music and frequency the best way we are able to at the time.

A prayer that I practice often is:

“Dear Divine Life force of this universe, thank you for the blessings you share with all living beings. Thank you for the light you offer to infuse my cells and being, as I grow, just as all living things are growing. Please help me to attune my personal frequency to the highest vibrations of Love, Peace, and Compassion and to retain this resonance during each of my interactions with other people and the planet. I ask that the water I visit, clear all karmic debris I am ready to release, and allow for an energy shift to transmute lower vibrations into new vital life force. Please send light beings aligned with (insert people names that are in the midst of challenges, or causing one challenges) to assist them on their journey and remind them of the light and choices they each carry. Thank you Amen, Om and Aho.”

The beauty of water, is that it flows through, around and over obstacles. Just as we, the people upon the planet are capable of changing directions, flowing with enthusiasm and connected consciousness towards new goals, ideals, peace and hope. Even when we see or are affected by choices and actions other people make and the vibration they emit, from an expanded view we remain connected to the awareness that each human has the personal power to make new choices every day, with each new awakening of self. We are all growing, flowing, moving, learning and choosing every minute of the day. We can choose to pause, in our forward momentum on the physical level, to find time and space to ‘expand our consciousness’ through an expanded view of the world, and our connected future as a whole, and retain this expanded awareness for clarity and perspective. What are the ways in which today affords a clearing of energy on a collective scale and a reinvigoration of personal and cosmic energy on a grander scale? Can we make choices individually to speak, act and manifest from a place of personal balance and peace, so that we effect a greater tidal wave of co-created vibrations for hope and compassion?

May we each feel connected to a greater awareness of our Self, our relationships, our collective world, and the ways in which we are each able to contribute to the co-creation of this present, and our future, reality of Earth.

Being Free from Disappointment

Dealing with disappointment is a skill that can benefit from some fine tuning on the etheric plane as well as emotionally. To stimulate a balancing of all of our ‘bodies’, begin with the physical, through balancing the third and fourth chakra’s.  Most people will experience disappointment as a feeling in their stomach, or in relationships, at their heart center.  A heaviness or pressure in either of these regions can lead to further feelings of self doubt, lethargy, and fluctuations in appetite. Bending forward in a forward bend, seated or standing helps to release from the stomach.  Spreading your shoulders wide to the sky and tilting your head very gently back, opens and clears at your heart center.

IMG_0554

The steps to fully alleviating these feelings, are to at first acknowledge them with Love.  Of course, the lottery ticket that didn’t win, the relationship that was painful, the job  promotion or offer that didn’t come was disappointing.  Most importantly, those disappointments are in no way a reflection of your worthiness, beauty, or soul purpose.  They are experiences on the human plane that come with having signed on for your present incarnation as a person.

Acknowledge that you are disappointed, yet simultaneously take the time to allow and ask for help from your guardian angels, helpers, guides, ascended masters and god-force, also aids in washing away, so to speak, the energy from your heart and stomach. Your third chakra, for example, corresponds with your personal feelings of Power.  It is the driving force that allows you to be assertive, physically strong, shielded from lower energies, and positive in life affirming action.  When you apply for a dream job, one you don’t think you may get, and you don’t get it, you are disappointed. You have also, however, just sent out an energy beam to the universe saying you are starting to realize you deserve a happier, more fulfilling position than you believed previously.  This message is loud and vibrant.  It is like an energetic shooting star that gets brighter with your continued confidence in yourself.  To allow the disappointment of an initial try to dim that light is counterproductive to your overall well being and success.  Look at the situation that has disappointed you, then allow yourself to release it, and say affirmatively from a place of your own centered power at your stomach, “I create space for greater happiness and abundance in opportunity, awareness, and love.”

Each of us has a negative personal mantra chorus we carry around that blocks our abilities to manifest, and your angels and guides sincerely want you to change that mantra to a positive one.  Absolutely, on every level they want you to be vibrating at your highest potential for energy, abundance, prosperity, love and personal truth.  If you wish to identify the negative mantra, take a moment to follow the pathways of your thoughts when you experience disappointment.  What is the first response in thought you have?  Is it, “I knew I couldn’t get another job.” or “I’m not worthy of love,” or even “I’ll never change.”  Widen your awareness and ‘feel’ where these thoughts are experienced in your body, most often it will be at your stomach or heart.

To change these affirmations to ones radiating light, take out the negative and replace it with a ultra-positive. “I am absolutely deserving of love,” “I excel and enjoy my career, I find creative solutions and opportunities everywhere I look,” or “Every day I am growing and learning along my joyous soul path.”  The difference in feeling, on the emotional, physical and spiritual plane will be almost instantaneous.

To remove the last traces of disappointment energetically, consider seeking a session with a light worker, this could be a book from the library, a massage, reiki, or an angel card session.  Your thoughts are alchemical, you have the ultimate power to transmute fear into gold, but sometimes, even the most balanced, grounded, independent person can use some help.  Asking for help is another lesson in dealing with disappointment, and there is no shame in it, rather the opposite.  The angels applaud your desire to reach out and have light reflected to you through friendships, relationships or services.

 

May your day be free of disappointments, yet if they come, may they not control you.  Be rich in your self praise and personal journey of exploring the new avenues that are unfolding.

with Light,

Kamia

Joy and Forgiving the Self

Many long years ago, I had a past partner tell me that the reason he loved me was because I was so good at forgiving. I was very surprised by this comment  yet over the years his words inspired me to consider all angles of forgiveness.  MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Ultimately, the forgiveness I have found to be the greatest of teachers, has been the ‘Forgiveness of Self’. This I can speak of with confidence, for it has only been while forgiving the self that I have witnessed the greatest transformations in both my own, and other peoples lives.

In friendships, working relationships, money choices, romantic partners, and other human interactions, it is amazing the level of grief people will carry around between their shoulder blades, and at their heart center, for all of their perceived ‘faults’ and mistakes.  Sadly, the self flagellation of ‘should have known better’ causes a rift in ones auric and emotional body that takes much longer to heal than physical injury.

If a person takes a chance on loving another in some capacity, or trusting an employer or friend, and a few years or months or days into it, is betrayed or disappointed, the most damage to their energy field that the scenario inflicts is from their own beliefs that they ‘should have known better.’ Perhaps they will acknowledge an instinctive, or intuitive voice that whispered to them to try something else.  Acknowledging this voice is excellent, imagining an internal hug from ones angels and guides and a promise to try and perceive the same kinds of messages in the future, is also a testament to growth.  Most importantly, however, above both of the other realizations, is taking a moment to envision the painful scenario, and surrounding the self with soft pink light; a shield so to speak of angelic assistance, or dark blue, if the situation continues to make one feel unsafe, at which point calling on Archangel Michael for protection is important.  This soft light begins the healing of self, and ultimately the release of all energetic attachments, chords, and lines that block the Self from growing.  A positive affirmation such as “I forgive myself, I acknowledge my growth and healing from this situation/scenario, I ask for the angels, universal consciousness and my own helpers and guides to help me release all lower vibrations related to this scenario, so that I may move with greater Love upon my own unique soul path.”

At this time, remember to breathe deeply and allow for at least fifteen minutes of rest to harmonize the healing on each level of your awareness.

Forgiveness of the self for perceived wrongs will create more space in the self and being for happiness and wholeness.  Life is fraught with lessons that in retrospect we may ‘think’ we could have avoided. Yet the knowledge we gained is what allows us to ‘think’ that way at all.  Moving along a path devoted to growth and expansion, it is important to love all aspects of the Self, even the ones from younger less experienced versions.

When I forgive myself, I have a larger heart-light to shine towards others, to encourage them along their own soul paths, to feel grateful for the lessons we learned together, and hope that they ultimately find joy. Some days, these prayers and feelings are easier than others, yet I can feel my guides laughing beside me, and they say assuringly, ‘After all, you are human.  Take a moment to lighten your mood and laugh, and forgive yourself your perceived imperfections, perhaps in this soul path you have chosen, they are, and will continue to be, your greatest teachers.”

 

With Love and blessings,

Kamia
