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.

Dreamers, Travellers and the Astral Body

IMG_5167

Every person has gifts to share and explore. Some of them will be on the physical plane, of existence, while others will have gifts that they share on the mental or emotional plane. Others still will have gifts that they fine tune and continue to explore on the spiritual plane. We all are gifted in our own way. In this same variety of gifts, people all have their own experiences of dreaming. Some will feel connected when speaking of dreams through heightened sensitivity. There can be an etheric ‘remembering’ from past lives, when mystics, and medicine peoples from past incarnations were more open and free to educate us all on the power of our Dreaming lives. Dreams are multilayered and diverse and sometimes, when sleeping, we can sense we are travellers between different levels of reality. The energy body is free to travel between dimensions, the present as it exists, the past and the future as they co-exist. Through each experience of the dream state, we are asked to nurture the strong chord of light that connects our astral self to our physical body. Life choices in the substances we ingest, healthful habits for physical strength, and gentle practices of meditation or other stress relieving actions, all contribute towards having a clearer ability to discern the astral self and our retention of our higher selfs view, as well as the importance of integrating back into the physical body after a dream state that brought our energy body ‘elsewhere’.

In past ages dreamers and seers were revered for what they experienced in a dreamlike state. They trained from early childhood to discern between ego, fear, alternate realities, possible futures and divinely guided messages. They had the capacity to ‘see’ the possibilities for our collective future, for the light that travels between the divine source and this planet and our people. They were masters of ‘discernment’. Many people in the present have forgotten to retain what they dream, as our western cultures do not always highlight the importance of the Dreamer. And yet, all innovative thought, all world changing initiatives originate from a sleeping or waking Dream. Whether waking or sleeping, the images we retain, the intuitive leaps of faith that we make, these are all levels of dreaming. What are the dreams we allow ourselves to retain from childhood? What are the dreams we dare to foster at this time? What are the dreams we would ask for the Divine source of the universe to support as this world moves forward? Sometimes, when we seek to creatively problem solve our way through a current life challenge, we can receive divinely guided insight while sleeping.

A prayer/affirmation for a restful/healthful sleep:

“Dear Divine Source, please help my astral body to stay connected and safe during all of my dreaming experiences. Please help me to radiate with the highest vibration of Divine Love, so that as I learn, experience and navigate alternate levels of being, I do so with the guidance and protection of Archangel Micheal, the light ray of courage and strength. I ask that all dreams come through in a way I can easily integrate and understand during waking life, and ask for the assistance of God/dess in discerning what wisdom, knowledge and grace I can carry forward into my waking life for the betterment of my individual and the collective, experience. Thank you, Amen Om, and Aho.”

IMG_4954

One of the tools that can be valuable for those that feel they ‘travel’ during sleep, is to nurture a reintegration process that allows for self kindness on awakening. A dream journal combined with a renewing practice that honours the physical body through ‘grounding’ movement such as yoga, a nature walk or other moving meditative, can contribute to a balanced sense of self. Day to day life makes demands upon us all, yet the personal experience of heightened awareness seeks to integrate our ‘higher self’ with our life as we live it. As energy beings we have no limits on what we are capable of perceiving, and yet in many present cultures, our ‘agreed upon rules’ of what constitutes reality are often confining to those with heightened awareness of their astral bodies. Some of what we dream will never come to pass, some is occurring simultaneously, and sometimes we are simply clearing out our subconscious book shelves of outmoded patterns or memories. There can be experiences that are fearful such as dreaming of a past life death, or travelling through alternate reality of a lower vibration than ones current life experience, after which perceiving, we can each benefit from self acceptance and gentleness. In the same way, if we awake form a dream in which we felt saturated in Divine Love, radiant with light and soul purpose, we may also need time and sacred space to integrate the spiritually/etherically/dream state into conscious life, so that we may radiate that same loving vibration throughout our day. People can dream of exchanging energy with one another when asleep, of visits from a past loved one who is on this plane of existence or has moved beyond the physical. Some can dream of helping those in need, by bringing what light the energy body radiates, in prayer and loving intention across vast physical distances.

In whatever capacity, waking or sleeping, we are each experiencing a dream state, may we bring forth the highest vibration of divine Love, compassion, grace of God/dess and the wisdom of all our energy being selves, to help navigate through this miraculous gift of Life. For all of the dreamers, may we each find tools for healthful integration, self kindness, and patience as we navigate our human experience.

With light and respect for the ways we are each choosing to radiate and patiently foster all of the gifts we bring forth from this and alternate levels of being,

Diffusing Anxiety

When I was a little girl, I had the good fortune to interact with a wise clairvoyant woman who assisted me on my path. I was eleven years old, and she said to me, “Your greatest challenge, will be to overcome Fear.” As a child I was afraid of very few things in this world. When discussing fear and the ways it can manifest with my parents, they discussed the concept with me that “behind Anger there is Fear, behind Fear there is Longing.

IMG_1778

As my personal exploration into the nature of Fear deepened, I came to acknowledge that I was fearful of receiving and sharing my spiritual perceptions in many social instances. I also acknowledged a deep longing within myself to make changes and space in my life to be more aligned with my Soul Path. For the highly sensitive individual, and those who are newly ‘awakening’ or acknowledging their sensitivities and etheric perceptions for the first time, there can be moments where the ‘openness’ of our being is overwhelming and we experience anxiety. Many people guard their inner light, wisdom and knowledge, fearful of the rejection or of being ostracized by the world if they allowed themselves to express fully, who they are. When experiencing an intense time of transition or transformation, we can experience ‘fear’ as old patterns are realized and we are asked to choose new directions in our life and well being. Fear can manifest in many ways, one of which is to cause Anxiety. *Anxiety in this instance, I refer to as a feeling on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels, as well as exhibiting physical manifestations such as elevated heart rate, upset stomach, and hot or cold flashes. Each person deals with anxiety in their own unique way, yet we each benefit from developing further tools that diffuse and release fear.

On the etheric level, when I ‘look’ at myself or another person who is feeling fearful, the image is of a being beneath a dome of cement like energy. Outside the dome of heavy stifling, sometimes crushing energy, is all of the divine assistance, angelic light, ascended masters, guides and helpers a person is surrounded by. To shift, and crack, or release this energy, to break through the stagnant dome, is to allow for the assistance of these helpers to connect more clearly with a person.

When in the presence of anxiety I send out a prayer such as:

“Dear Divine Source of Creation, please send your warrior energy through Archangel Micheal or Kali Ma, to assist me now in releasing all fear based energy surrounding me at this time. I ask that my guardian angels bolster my courage to help me to see the ways in which I have the power to change my experience in all ways. Please help me to feel the bridge of light that connects me to the Divine and send me the assistance of Archangel Sandalphon to carry my prayers for change, wellbeing and self knowledge. Thank you, Amen, Aho and OM.”

After such a prayer, take deep breaths with hands interlaced across the stomach and facing downwards. Connecting with the third chakra, and the ‘power center’ of the being, what images, sensations, feelings or messages does one perceive at this time?

As a highly sensitive and clairvoyant person, I visualize a wave of light washing across the being, and disintegrating the dome of anxiety or fearfulness. When the wave of light on the etheric realm has disintegrated or washed away the anxiety, the mental, emotional and physical body are simultaneously offered an opportunity for positive alignment. I allow for the wave of light to infuse the cells of the body, to create space for the root cause of the fear to surface and be examined, so that release is possible.

Sometimes we must be willing to deepen our self awareness to find the root cause. For example, a few years ago I felt very anxious about earning more money. Yet when I meditated on what was truly causing me anxiety, I found that I wanted to switch career paths, that I yearned to take a chance on myself and follow my dreams for a spiritual based career. The fear surrounding money was actually a longing to invest in myself and to be more spiritually attuned so that I could express my inner Truth. Through allowing for the assistance of the divine to release the dome of anxiety I was carrying around, I began to ‘see’ the ways in which I had the tools, courage and power necessary to make the change I yearned for. Each person has the free will and personal power to develop their sensitivity and understanding of the energetic/ spiritual reality of the universe and of themselves.

When we allow that we can alter our reality on the spiritual level, we empower ourselves to make changes on the physical plane of existence. I have learned that in examining fear and anxiety as teachers and indicators that change is necessary for Divine heath, that we can all be empowered in our commitment to allow transition, transformation and healing in our lives.

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.

IMG_3817

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.

Acknowledging and Allowing for ‘More’

The light in the sky is still soft, the clouds moving away from the mountains like a foamy ocean wave off of the shore.  As I am doing my own spread of cards, I feel the soft angelic presence of of one of the angels suggesting it is a good morning to share a card with the world.

After completing my own spread, I am drawn to work with the Goddess Guidance Oracle deck.  The card the reveals itself is Rhiannon and the card has colors like the morning sky.  Magical soft grays and blues that we often see at dawn and dusk, the hours when many believe the veil between the worlds, and between the conscious and subconscious mind are thinnest.

The card speaks of the desire and need for people to find and believe in ‘something more’.  Something more then they see with their physical eyes, a form of faith, guidance or assurance that there is more in life and that they are connected to and have access to it.  I say with absolute assurance, there is more, and yes, we are all connected to ‘it’.

The world is full of magical moments, the comment or song we overhear that uplifts us when we need it most, the person we meet for the first time but recognize as an old friend, the sudden smell of flowers when we are walking through a winter landscape, and the heart shaped cloud in the sky, are all moments of ‘magic’.

Every person has the potential to connect with their own inner guidance, to hear their angels and guides and to feel the light and love in the universe.  Though it can seem daunting, and the ego may yell the opposite, we are all born with a sixth sense.  If you are reading this, you are a magical person.  You can, as the card reads “manifest clear intentions into reality.” If you are new to the path of believing in your own guidance, ordering a book from the library, getting your own deck of cards, or enrolling in an energy based workshop are all steps that can be taken to honor the emergence of your faith in yourself and your receptivity.  A walk to a place in nature that feels like a power spot for you, is also a free way to connect with your higher self.

Let your life have magical moments, and they will increase.  Thank your guides when those moments occur and remember to give yourself positive reinforcement for believing in them.  Ancient cultures believed in ‘more’, the knowledge and faith is still encoded in the strands of DNA in your body, and the body of the earth.  Trust yourself, be loving as you journey forwards, and allow a little loving magic into the way you experience the world today.
