Self Empowerment for Divine Love at First Sight

People have varied opinions on the phrase ‘love at first sight.’ The more committed I am to experiencing the world and people at large with the etheric perceptions of my clairvoyance and intuition, the more I readily embrace the phrase as true. Love at first sight for me, is a celebration of truly seeing all of the light that another person, the world around me, nature and animals and the etheric reality afford, whenever I am willing to celebrate and recognize light in all its forms. Light as the resonance of the Soul, as the thought forms, the prayers and highest vibrations of positive energy that stretch between all living beings, and the cosmic reality of the universe.

I am able to walk into a situation and Love because I have first made an investment of energy in balancing myself, and recognizing my own gifts. From a place of personal empowerment, there is a boundless well of energy that I have found accessible for encouraging others to celebrate their own unique gifts. I see people fighting their own personal battles, just as I have overcome challenges within my own life, and I Love them. I can express this love through a prayer, a kind word, or by sharing a story about tools I have found to overcome challenges. Loving the world at large does not manifest as enabling, or ‘fixing’ or changing other people. Loving for me, manifests as encouraging personal empowerment. Each person has a divine link to the greater God/dess source, and choices each day about expressing this link, utilizing it for strength, amplifying their own light through this connection, and finding new ways to express, connect and celebrate the light around them in people and places that resonate in alignment with their personal vibration. When I am empowered, I am able to Love, whether I am meeting someone for the first time, or encountering a person, or family member repeatedly. The combination of personal empowerment and Love is like a shield that deflects all lower vibrations, and fear based energy that circulate in the collective reality, or in situations I once found uncomfortable, hurtful, or challenging.

A simple prayer I have used to empower myself:

“I ask that God/dess work with my Higher Self to help me to release all patterns that are fear based. Please Archangels, and Ascended Masters working alongside me at this time, help me to recognize the ways in which I am empowered by my personal gifts and light, and encourage me to connect with the bravery, the kindness, the compassion and grace, that I have as a reflection of the divine source, within my own Soul. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

A simple prayer I have often said for others:

“Dear God/dess, source of all creation, please send the light beings that are most aligned with (the person’s name or an image in your mind of the person you have wish to pray for) to remind them of their own divine light. Please assist this person in recognizing opportunities for personal empowerment, healing, and compassion that are around them each day. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

As a new wave of energy moves across the planet, the shifting of one year to the next, what are the choices each of us can make that help us to be more empowered? To step forward along our own divine path to encourage others to also feel empowered in the personal expression of divine Truth? The world will always have more space for each of us to express Love personally, communally, and universally. What are the expressions of Love that we can each make this new year, both great and small? Is it through art, writing, public speaking, action, choices about Loving ways to react, movement, building, creating, group support or planting of seeds both physical or metaphorical? Do we express love by raising funds for others? Or donating time and energy to a cause close to our heart that empowers others? We all have gifts for a future that is co-creating peace and Love on a grander scale. When we decide to move forward and follow our dreams of our deepest being, we become empowered, and able to Love on an expansive level.

For each person who is transforming aspects of self, areas in their life, and relationships personally and universally, I send you Love, respect, and appreciation for your courage. You all inspire me.

with light,

Nature and Faith

Faith can manifest in many ways. It can be a dedication to a belief, a hope, or a prayer. It can be a stubborn refusal to give up on ones dreams. Faith can be the ‘taken for granted,’ trust that such things as the sun rising, and the season’s changing, will occur, no matter what the personal challenges we are facing at any given time. Faith is a vital ingredient in all of our endeavors, to grow, to expand our consciousness, and ultimately, to manifest a reality on the planet that we feel proud of on a cosmic level. A reality that provides for generations of future children, animals, plant life, and pure water.

When I feel my Faith challenged, I like to go outside. To a place in nature that appeals in that particular moment in time, whether it be seascape, mountain, forest, river, lake, hillside, pasture or garden. Once I am standing or sitting on the earth, without the constraint of cement or floor beneath my feet, I am better able to regain the flutters of inspiration, comfort or peace, that are needed to again connect with Faith. As soon as we begin to focus our awareness in a manner that is seeking a connection with the Divine, our Higher Self, or our Soul purpose, we begin to send out etheric chords of light that vibrate at an extremely pure rate. The vibration begins to effect all of the thought patterns, emotional challenges, the physical health of our bodies, and the way we feel connected or disconnected to the planet.

A prayerful thought, a moment of meditation, effects each level of our personal and communal experience. The thoughts that become barriers, are those that diminish our self esteem, and our Faith, and are often a result of our Ego and fear. To overcome such thoughts, consider taking off ones shoes, curling toes and fingers into the ground, and noticing the way plants courageously grow, even if only for a single season, ever upwards, to share their intrinsic beauty, with the world. Watch the way animals move, the way they navigate a largely human landscape, seeking out the wild places, and in domestic cases, sharing unconditional love each and every day. On days where I feel tired or sad, I watch my dog leap through tall grass, or the way the tree branches seem to greet the wind with fondness. I listen to the natural world, and in this listening, I am able to reconnect with Faith for myself, the planet, and her people.

For a connection to the Divine feminine aspects, one of the ascended masters that offers constant companionship to anyone seeking to renew their Faith is White Buffalo Calf Woman. For a renewal of the Divine masculine, the ascended master Jesus offers assistance. Both carry gentle energy, of renewal and compassion, for a changeable earth, an evolving humanity, and a respect for all living beings, the earth included.

A mantra/prayer I have found useful in connecting with their particular light resonance is as follows:

“Dear God/dess of creation, please help me to feel the light within this earth, the light within myself, and the pathways on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual planes that I can travel to feel more grounded in my true self. Please send me assistance through the energy gifts of Jesus, to be patient with myself, as I learn each new tool for this growth. Please send me the energy assistance of White Buffalo Calf Woman, so that my relationship with myself, this earth, and all those I encounter, is based on respect and sacred awareness for the gifts of this life. Thank you. Amen, Aho, and OM.”

with light and respect,

May your Faith illuminate the path you have chosen,

Replacing Grief with Love

Image

“I’ve asked myself often, ‘What is the best way to heal a grieving heart?’ The image that always arises is of standing at the edge of the ocean and watching waves of water undulate towards the shore.  There is something so incredibly reassuring in the waves of the ocean, for on some primordial level the rise and fall is not only a mirror of our inhalations and exhalations but also of the rhythms that we experience in our lives; sleeping and waking hours, and the subconscious and conscious mind, all linked, the perfect balance for one another, changing in intensity, yet rushing towards and over us like the emotions that we carry and ultimately must decide if we are ready to release when wishing to transform to another level of reality.

The grief that I have experienced during this life and others, and the grief that I witness in others around me, is inextricably linked to the healing and ability to experience Love on the current plane of physical manifestation as well as on a larger Soul scale. If a person is looking to transform something in their lives, to receive more love for example, to attract more abundance, to share greater kindness, but also to perceive it in the world around them, Archangel Raphael, an angelic resonance of healing, as well as Aphrodite, a sea goddess of Love, encourage that the grief that is being carried in the body, either the etheric, emotional, mental, physical, or all combined, must first allow the wave of Love that they desire to experience, to be what follows the cleansing wave of grief that surrounds the issue. 

 “Dear God/dess, ascended masters and light based fairy kingdom, please help me to receive and communicate Love.  I ask that you aid me on all levels of my life, to perceive opportunities for positive growth.  Please help me, Archangel Michael feel courageous, as I acknowledge the ways in which past experiences and choices have left me grieving, and help me to accept healing energy from the earth and cosmos, of the highest vibration, so that I may transform for my highest good. Thank you.”

To heal a grieving heart, allow the ocean of Love to feed you, allow that the natural world will cradle you as you witness the areas of your life or evolution that you are silently grieving.  Allow the grief to wash through and past you, in its wake there is greater space, and capacity for Love to fill your being and Soul.  This love and grief may be like waves in the ocean for your entire human experience.  There will be times where the grief feels unbearable, and then, through the miraculous powers you possess as an individual, you metamorph, and transform, and heal.  The Love follows.” 

 

with light,

and respect for your journey,

Becoming Who We Are Right Now

Allot of people I’ve been interacting with have remarked about their changes in energy levels.  Changes to their physical energy levels, their ability to offer and sustain familiar patterns in relationship, and their desire or lack of desire to manifest and create new energy for interests on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane.  What I am gathering, from personal experience as well as these illuminating conversations, is that this is a year with an ‘opposites’ theme in some respects. Be patient with yourself and others, transformation is powerful, all encompassing, and challenging.

 

If you have lived many years in a pattern of sedentary, stillness, this year you may feel as though there are fireworks attached to your feet.  Suddenly all you can do is MOVE.  For this change I celebrate you!  It is a natural manifestation of all of the light you have gathered up until this point.  It is safe to move forward, to change and relocate and have a very different life all of a sudden.  To apply for a new job, get engaged, dye your hair a vibrant shade and dance down the streets, singing all of the way.  You are not losing your sanity, you are simply channelling another aspect of your beautiful self you have always fostered internally. Harness your impetus and enthusiasm for change, and cheer those around you that you are witnessing doing the same.  Your heart chakra is beaming golden, rainbow radiance, and this is a gift to the entire world as well as your inner Self.

If you, however, are an individual used to ‘achieving’, this will be a year where perhaps that impetus to exercise seven days a week, nurture everyone around you, and sleep five hours a night, isn’t really working anymore.  Your internal flame is still just as bright, but it is sending light into your own cells, transforming the expression of your essence in a new and unique way.  You are still a beautiful, talented, energy-rich being, but no, you cannot achieve as much in a day as in previous years as perhaps were accustomed to, and there can be physical repercussions if you attempt to force yourself to do so.  Respect your body and soul’s need for this gift of regeneration, and create space in an otherwise hectic schedule to just slow down and receive.  Receive the messages from you inner wisdom, your connection to the divine, and your loved ones.  Allow them to gift you with the bouquets of flowers and kindness you have been so very comfortable bestowing all of these year.  Being still, does not lesson your importance, as those around you who are even now bursting forth from their accustomed shells, can tell you.

It takes courage to try a new approach to your life, and courage is required to sit in stillness, just as it is required to go rocketing down another pathway.

This year is a transformational year.  It is important to remember that transformation requires ALLOT of energy.  To rebuild the self on any level, to birth a new dream, create a new job, project, loving relationship or lifestyle, the self is drawing from the internal flame, that divine light that is always accessible, and making the light manifest in this world.  We are all manifesting on a cellular, soul and emotional level.  Our hearts are shedding lifetimes worth of debris.  The emotional roller coaster that accompanies this release can be exhausting or exhilarating.  Either response it the natural response for our individual bodies and life journey’s at this time.

A focus that can help to bring each individual back to a place of balance, amidst the every changing year, is to remember self kindness, acceptance and respect.

Respect that your process is unique and your own.  Be kind as the patterns that are familiar are stripped away, and feed yourself loving words.  A mantra I find useful is “I accept where I am on my journey.  I trust that I am evolving at the safest speed for me.  I accept Angelic support and aid at this time.  I am radiant with light.”

 

Your higher self is using this brilliant opportunity, this transformational year, to flow more freely into your every day life. Honor the inclinations you are having whether they are for extra sleep or a sky diving adventure, restorative yoga or taking up downhill mountain biking.  Your instincts and ideas are communications from your Angels and Higher self.   Embrace these changes and celebrate what a magnificent being you truly are!

 

With respect and light,

Kamia
