Awakening to the Art of Letting Go

I often think of life as an experience of gathering tools. Challenge, heartbreak, euphoria and Grace flowing through and around us. It is in the times in life in which new tools must be unearthed that we can gain some of our greatest capacity as light beings, Soul’s, having a human incarnation. We do not forge these so called tools, the prayerful spiritual, or physical, mental, or emotional manners of navigating reality by having a perfectly ‘ease-filled’ life. In life changing cycles, we may find that our previous manner of navigating has become inadequate and that our core self is seeking reveal an expanded level of consciousness. We may find that we are holding to tightly to tools that have worked in the past to help us regain a semblance of security or understanding.

We become more empowered humans when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge where we are truly ‘feeling’ and existing in the course of our life. We may have long years of self doubt, that finally ebb away with the changing of seasons, into a more peaceful or joyous experience. We may have reoccurring life themes, similar relationships that we recreate over and over, as the tools we seek to finally unearth within us need fine tuning. All of it is valuable. The times we felt we let ourselves or others down, the times we offered help or kindness, and hold close in our heart. It is all the grand experience of incarnated life.

When a person is in the midst of a new phase, a tool box building phase, it is spiritually normal to feel as if the receptive quality one is most familiar with has ‘stalled’. The clairvoyant may feel as thought they are having difficulty ‘seeing’. The clairaudient may develop a very physical ringing in their ears. The clairsentient may feel numb to reception of empathetic information. And the claircogniziant may wonder where all of their inspired, problem solving ideas have disappeared too.

During these times, we are asked to be extremely gentle and kind with ourselves. To allow that sometimes, in a transition, during an integration period of a new level of being or consciousness, the changes occurring on the spiritual or etheric level are so momentously large, that we will ‘re-boot’ so to speak with an entirely new operating system, and perception of this life.
For those that are currently feeling as though the compass that was guiding them has disappeared, I offer this prayer/affirmation/mantra:

“Dear God/ess, Sacred Earth and Divine Source, please help me to feel connected to this planet and myself. Even as a seed cracks wide, and pushes towards the light, please help me to feel that my current stage of growth is being guided by my higher Self, the Divine Source and my gifts for this Soul Path. Thank you for helping me feel the wisdom carried through the wind, of far off places, of other people that grow and evolve, even as I endeavour to do so. Thank you for helping my feet feel the warmth and the power of the soil beneath my feet, to remind me that I am rooted and safe. Thank you for helping me feel the light of the sun, mirroring the life force and fire I carry in my being, and for bringing the healing waters, whether through rain, or tears, or a flowing river to teach me to let go of that which I no longer need to carry. Thank you, Amen, Om, Aho.”

After saying, or thinking this prayer, or a version like it, that resonates with us each at this time, we are invited by the Divine Source to truly, deeply, Let Go. Let go of our expectations of perfection, or timelines, or self imposed manners of being devoted, or caring ‘enough,’ of control, grief or fear or insecurity. Let it all go, like a gently flowing river, or an effortless waterfall that plummets through space. Sometimes, when we allow ourselves a few minutes without holding tightly, we are able to discover the vast space within us filling up with new levels of Divine Source, of colour, light, nourishment, Peace or personal understanding for what can be most healthy/healing for us next.

I can remember that during travels around the globe, I would often return to my home town and feel like a completely ‘different’ person, from the woman I had been six months beforehand. Being immersed in foreign cultures and landscapes, from the food and languages I didn’t recognize, the manner of living that was so entirely different from the western culture, something would flower within my being, and my perception of life at ‘home’ would be irrevocably different. I did not always feel like my previous tools were ‘enough’ for each situation I encountered, but I had deep faith that I could forge, build and uncover new tools each time. I practiced the Art of Letting Go of preconceived ideologies, identity and coping. These shifts of consciousness helped me to become the woman I am, the one who can offer a gentle word of encouragement to others while they go through transformative experiences, rebirths, challenges or euphoric joy. We all can choose to continue to embrace the growth and development of healthy tools this wondrous life offers. To feel sorrow, or joy, or anger, or fear, or wonder or awe or Love, and to learn more. We never stop learning, even with our final breaths in these sensitive physical bodies, I truly believe, we learn once more, a new level, understanding and perspective on our Soul’s journey.

May we each feel the blossoming of spring, and find the patience we need through each new lesson of self, for deeper levels of Compassionate Being.

Spiritual ‘Doorways’

To allow for the essence of incarnated being to exist, we must each pass through a doorway so to speak, an entrance into the physical, when we are born. Babies come with the potential to emit their own frequency, to gift the world their own unique music of soul and light essence and physical matter, for however long they live. Some may be a heartbeat, that resonated across a community or family, some may grow to be a wisdom keeper, an elder for their tribe or country, yet for however long ,the individual exists as an intersection of energy, their music of self, their unique resonance combines with our overall chorus, or rainbow of individual and collective vibrancy, and helps build the waves of energy that move across this planet and reach out far beyond the stars our human eyes can perceive.

When a baby is seeking to make the initial jump into physical being, their soul wraps itself around the parents, whispering the potential of the life that could come through, with the two individuals partnership. That soul then waits for the doorway that symbolizes the set of lessons they have sought to experience. Perhaps it is to be cradled in a womb, with love and joy, perhaps it is a long life that reaches our and opens doorways for other lives to enter. The Divine Source holds and nourishes every Soul that has been incarnated, or seeks to be incarnated in the future. I often see the little ‘lights’ the potential of babies that are seeking parents with the particular genetic, emotional, spiritual coding that offers them the lessons they are eager to explore during a physical incarnation. For everyone I ‘see’ or hear’ I say this prayer ‘May your soul find a home in the physical realm that adds beauty, truth and depth to the human experience. May the Divine Source help carry you into a life with the potential for Joy. Amen, OM and Aho.’ I say the prayer and see them choose parents, or recede back into the network of light that is energy around us all, ebbing and flowing, waiting and moving, wrapping about those who do have bodies and imploring us to each to see and feel , and be connected to the miracle that manifest life offers.

The energy of the manifest universe moves and combines in a similar fashion to the way a rainbow becomes visible with the right combination of water and sunlight. The potential for matter, for shifts in consciousness, all of the ‘ingredients’ that can combine to bring about a massive shift on the earth physically, or the uplifting energy waves that can accelerate the collective consciousness of people on the earth, at any given time. This cosmic energy exists and moves, sometimes directed by the thought patterns that people contribute, by the natural worlds evolution through time or space, and through the ‘agreement’ that souls make when they move from light body to physical being. In my humble perception at this time, I see us all like intersections of ‘light’ or energy. We emit our own unique frequency but are an alchemical combination of the building blocks of physical matter and energy and soul essence that allow us to exist consciously in both individual and mass connection as the human race. As individual energy nodes, we can refract light, like a rainbow from rain and sunlight, on different wavelengths based on the current life choices we are making, combined with the wisdom/karmic debris our Soul brings forth from previous lifetimes or light systems.

During our life walks, when we have entered the physical, we each are given choices through the Law of Free Will, about what spectrum of light, soul essence or divine alchemy, we wish to emit. Like the original doorway of energy, when we miraculous blended the spirit of self into the human body and became both greater soul, connected to a soul group, as well as human consciously experiencing life, the subsequent ‘doorways’ during our life path can ask for a s similar level of courage. We walk through these energy gateways several times during our lifetimes, and for those with heightened sensitivities, it may seem as though a life and death cycle is being replayed during each major transition. What will we each choose as ‘doorways’ swing open, the tidal pull of the energy of collective emotion, or individual and earth inspired Peace? A universal ‘doorway’ can be evident when a child transitions from youth to adulthood. This shifting of energy can be honoured by the traditional practices of many indigenous peoples in which test of physical strength and courage, mental, emotional and spiritual endurance mark the end of youth and the beginning of woman or man. Other personal doorways can when a persons spiritual power seeks expression int he physical world. We each must choose to honour and explore or strengthen our particular sensitivities or to keep them hidden or suppressed. I have ‘seen’ those doorways open many times for people, and the choices to commit to a path that honours the soul, or continues to be familiar is a kind of life/death/rebirth. Most people are given choices several times through out their lives to walk through ‘doorways’ into different levels of being or consciousness.
Some peoples choices surrounding moving forward with a new cycle of life lessons, karmic unfolding and spiritual exploration, can feel as if they are actually living several lifetimes during one lifetime. As if each new completion of energy, gave way to an entirely new combination of hues from the rainbow spectrum we each carry. We also individually and collectively pass doorways on the energy realm that connect us with different lifespans. With Clairvoyance I have ‘seen’ two different times during my current life walk in which on a Soul level I could have chosen to transition back into light, or continue in this current body with a new wave of energy saturating my life. The soul sees in many directions at once.

If we feel that we are approaching a doorway, between life and death, or a new level of being, between bringing forth a child, or resurrecting a level of childlike innocence and beauty within ourselves, here is a prayer/affirmation I have used, that I offer for those who are seeking:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to feel connected to all of the light I am capable of channelling forth from the spiritual realm into the physical world. Please help me to have courage, as I acknowledge the ways my conscious self is becoming deeper, holding a greater capacity for compassion and grace in this world. Please let me clearly see the pathways of learning new lessons before me, so that I can navigate these life changes with resilience, patience and bravery.

Let me be a bridge between Soul and earth for my current lifespan and for those who seek to be brought forward alongside, with, or through me. And if some choose a path that is shorter, let me be there on the spiritual, physical, emotional or mental level, to hold them in my heart, as they transition through the network of light into the heart of God/dess once more.

Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

May we each receive the Divine Love and support we need through transitory times.

with light and respect,

Innocence and Relationship

Many times in life, the ego asserts itself with punishing words and self blame that is unfair, and unfounded. It is important to develop an internal dialogue that brings the ego back into balance, and fosters an inner warrior-ship that defends the innocence we all carry.  Innocence, as I recently communicated to a client, is not the same as naivete.

Innocence is the ability to see the absolute light and love within the self, another, or a situation, and our faith that anything can be tranformed.  It is with Innocence that we often leap forward to tell someone or share with someone in relationship(can be friendship) all of the potential and gifts we believe they carry.  It is with Innocence that we find the courage to have faith in ourselves, to attempt a new class, new career, move, or trip.  When we watch a child discover the magic of the world, to talk to the animals and unseen fairies as friends, to speak of the dreams they have, we are reminded of the innate Innocence that they carry and we ourselves carry.

Foster this beautiful attribute within yourself.  Make a list of the dreams you have that are based on this purity of heart, and repeat, as many times as it take, “I deserve to trust and believe in my worthiness to foster this beautiful vision within my self”.

I often see those around me, stepping forward to act in honour of their own belief in others light, particularly in relationship.  Sometimes this light is not as consciously honoured in the partner or individual they want to beam themselves at.  This does not mean that they were wrong in believing the other was deserving of this light, recognition, or faith.  Sometimes it means that the other is not as aware of their own light, and are not capable at this time of reflecting it back to you.  You have given them a gift in sharing yourself and your faith in this way.  Foster this gift by allowing them to continue on their path, in hopes that they may find the means of honouring themselves in a similar way one day.  Foster your inner innocence by moving forward in search of relationships that are as equally nourishing of the self, as you are willing to be of another.

We are all born Innocent, sometimes circumstance and experience dampens this brilliant light within, but no matter what, it is still within you.  The angels reach around you in a gentle hug, to foster and reignite the spark.  See the world  this way for a day, see the light within all others, and remember, you are shining, every moment of every day, the angels acknowledge this, it is time to acknowledge it yourself.

with Love
