Balance Through Being Present

IMG_1767

We are all capable of growth in leaps and bounds, or small minute detailed seeds.  We healthfully integrate such growth by accepting the cycle we are currently offered and devoting time and energy to bravely leaping, or carefully scrutinizing these rhythms. Our rhythms are our own, to navigate, celebrate, amplify, and combine with the overall resonance of Divine Source to the best of our capacity each day.  And yet, for those that leap, or those that carefully plan, there are times in life in which we are offered opportunities to elevate our personal vibration and often through the opposite patterning that we are accustomed to.  

Some of us may live many lifetimes in a single incarnated lifespan, some of us may live a very long one life experience; each soul incarnates with the free will, and resonance to fulfill its life path with Grace and self acceptance.  For those that have cycled many times through lifespans, we are able to offer reassurance, a helping, steadying hand to those that are new to the physical, or have not been on the planet in physical reality in a long time.  For those that are new to the earth plane, they are able to remind us of the delight and capacity to bravely explore all human interaction.  

In the duality of exploring new manners and rythms, we evolve a little further towards our own highest good. We all can identify what brings us balance, by looking at the overall patterns and reoccurring life times we attract into daily, yearly and decades of living.  If we are masterful at attracting abundance then what abundance are we capable of bestowing on others?  If we are always in conscious physical being, when and where do we allow ourselves to dream? If always in mental exploration, at what time throughout our lifespan or in each moment of the day will we choose to ‘feel’ and think with the emotional body? For example, if a person is used to carrying others, energetically, the inverse balancing practise, is to release all such sense of responsibility and to identify that the ultimate gift is reminding one another we are capable of carrying ourselves, with God/dess constant encouragement. On the opposite and counterbalancing side of the spectrum of energy exchange, if a person is used to receiving, then the inverse is to give selflessly.  

Each of us is always walking on an etheric web of scales.  Where we drop our attention and harvest intentional creative being, where we draw, sculpt and build new dreams. We are also each susceptible of combining our personal rhythm with an overlying cultural or life pattern in the present worlds manifest reality.  It can be comfortable to believe we should rush, and achieve, because of a thread of energy that flows through current culture in an imbalanced way that promotes dissociation from Peacefulness.  We are able, however with devoted time and energy to each choose to be present in each breath, each moment, and see that while we build empires of being, thought, or material wealth, we can also choose to feel, meditate, simplify and expand our energy field to the more ancient roots, rhythms and threads of energy that circle beyond this present time, and offer an anchor into Peacefulness. 

IMG_5254

Balance is a daily devotional practice.  It is in connecting more fully with the our physical heartbeat and rhythm, and the mirror, amplifier, greater drum of the planet. Yet it is also in reaching out energetically and identifying patterns that others carry, with depth of compassion and acceptance for the learning path each individual is on. We are always devoted to Peace, how do we choose to balance by embracing the transformative fire of movement and change?  If we are always rushing and achieving, what gifts are we willing to accept into our life for stillness and reception of Beauty? 

If someone seeks assistance through asking questions and a will to learn about our personal unfolding, we can choose to offer teachings, yet we can also choose times to be seekers or students ourselves.  Everyone smoothly may flow from one side, space, level of energy reception, to the next. 

Opening that receptive quality, for identifying where balance can be invited into our lives requires the free will choice, to pause, to rest, and sometimes to change direction. 

For those seeking to feel more balanced at this time in the calendar year, or in their present or approaching decades of self I offer this simple practice that has assisted me in this and previous lifetimes:

Choose a place whether indoors or outside and sit with hands interlaced across the navel. 

Breathe deeply for four to twelve breaths, and with each breath allow that ones heartbeat be noted.

Visualize the in a globe of soft white light.  Inside of that globe, there is only space for Love.  This can be said outlaid or repeated in the mind “There is only space for love in my aura.” This is not to say we may not experience echoes of fear, challenge, struggle, frustration or anxiety in our safe energy boundary, but rather that we are blocking reception of external  fear based energy and identifying what we as an individual are contributing/carrying at this moment in time.

Once the globe of light feels solid, a prayer such as this can facilitate learning surrounding personal Balance :

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, thank you for your assistance in cleaning all levels of energy that are no longer in alignment with my highest good.  Please help me to clearly see areas of my life in which I ma ready for healing, or can invite in change.  Thank you for sending my guardian angels, spirit guides, ancestors  or the ascended masters aligned with m at this time, to me in my sleep or during meditation to encourage courage, patience and compassion.  Thank you for this gift of life, I am ready to take responsibility for any actions that are necessary or any inaction that is most healthful during this cycle of self, to continue my growth and personal, and universally connected, evolution.  Amen, OM and Aho.”

After such a prayer,  what do we receive? Approaching this experience with a willingness to Grow, can reveal or solidify deep intuitive wisdom.  Sometimes we grow with so much effort and sometimes with spontaneous acceptance of light speed life shifts. Perhaps we receive messages, clear feelings through self acceptance, we may feel, think, see, or hear messages. There may be fragments of songs, warmth, colour or words. Perhaps we identify we are offered balance through the warmth of a nap, song, spontaneous body movement or sustenance through healthful food, as rises through a series of messages in our globes of protective light.

As we sort through and accept each thought/feeling/sensation as they rise, what do we clearly identify regarding our connection to the external world, after we have invested time and energy in balancing this internal landscape? Is there an invitation to practice forgiveness should another person be seeking to place their burden on our energy shoulders?   We may choose to practice prayer for individuals that are close to energy breakthroughs, after identifying that our role is to self heal and then remind others they are capable of the same.  Acceptance of growth allows whatever cycle is natural at this time, to occur, until a new cycle is invited in.  When we are fluid in our self acceptance, we allow our personal processes to flow more peacefully through our lifespan, and empower all those we encounter that Balance is possible.

With light and kindness for wherever your personal rhythms are guiding your each this month,

Inter Dimensional Awareness

Inter dimensional travel can simply refer to a persons capacity to retain information gathered while there consciousness travels free of their physical location on the planet, wether in meditation or sometimes in sleep.  

img_5005

To traverse realities, we simply are allowing an expansion of consciousness, a ‘larger view’ or a ‘higher perspective’ from our physical space occupied in the body we incarnated into for this life walk.  To travel inter dimensionally, a Soul may incarnate with past life knowledge of moving through different levels of the manifest reality. They may spend time exploring an alternate reality, a space in which their current life could have deviated and taken an alternate path.  They may find themselves in lower dimension, one in which the world does not appear to be as pristine in natural resources as we still currently, miraculously get to occupy in this Life.  People may also travel to higher dimensions, and when the terms ‘higher or ‘lower’ are used, this references the overall vibration, the energy resonance of the ‘place.’ Just like physical mass in our current reality, that vibrates on a molecular level at a lower speed than the air we breathe, the lower dimensions, dominant vibration is slower, while a ‘higher’ dimension which may afford inspiration from ascended masters, or entrance to a place such as ‘Shambala’ or other evolved beings who teach those who travel greater tools for navigating this current reality with Peace and Compassion for utilizing innate healing abilities, resonates at a ‘faster/higher’ energetic level.

As a person who identifies the difference between waking and sleeping dreams as having very different textures; times in which travelling astrally affords a new level of wisdom for working with my gifts of clairvoyance vs dreams in which experiences throughout the day or this current life offer up new perspectives or learning, I began to integrate early in my life, that this current lifetime is rich with beauty for much of this wondrous planet, and is therefor the dominant experience of consciousness, the ‘home’ that is returned to from other places for many.  We have access to fresh air and pure water, enough for the entire planet should innovative teachings from visionaries or healers of different modalities begin to inspire mass consciousness.

Between travelling through different levels of my own consciousness I gathered tools, teachings, and a deep appreciation each time I returned to this current level of being.

Some of the tools that can be of service to those who feel their Soul experience moves beyond their present life are as follows:

*Fresh air, food, and water feed the cells of this current body.  Through the level of resonance the bodies water cells are beaming at, a clearer capacity to choose when to return to ones body, and which dimensions draw us towards them, can be more accurately navigated. Amplification or balance at sacred places, or through holding a crystal can also encourage a ‘clear sighted; view of all that the consciousness expands into/towards/through.’ (*Please note, many highly sensitive individuals self medicate through toxic substances of alcohol or drugs to block their capacity to experience other realms. When encountering such individuals we can choose to send divine source towards them in a globe of soft pink (unconditional loving grace) that surrounds them with a prayer that they find the healing necessary to feel safe in their current body in all ways.)

img_6837 *A dream journal or a trusted friend or spiritual mentor to share experiences with.  As we grow, evolve and explore through out our lifetimes, we may find that a message we received, or a view we were given access to, comes into a relevant meaning several years form when we had it.  For example, I once ‘saw’ a reality in which I was in a future in which people are able to communicate on a much clearer telepathic and empathic level of being.  To ‘show’ a story to one another or a lesson/teaching through projecting the feelings and essence of an idea towards on another.  This had great gifts for healing.  Doctors and natural medicine healers were working in teams to offer many options to each person who sought medical advice.  They received the agreed upon treatments from  western medicine, as well as energy work, emotional well being, mental health and natural medicine of plants and crystals.  In this current reality I have had the privilege of teaching energy awareness to some western medicine practitioners.  In those moments the dream/clairvoyant message rose once more in my consciousness, a gift to see the small part I was playing towards manifesting that future.

*There are no safe shortcuts.  This is a reminder that we are all encouraged to find our most natural communion with the Divine Source and our own Soul gifts.  We may feel that tools others offer resonate with us, and incorporate them into our daily practice or in retreat for devoted segments of time.  Yet we all unfold at the speed that is safest for integrating, aligning and assimilating with our current life path.  To open too quickly through toxins is dangerous. (For those whom have done so, and now seek to heal the holes in their aura that unwanted energies are coming through, or connected too, I pray that a healer of energy medicine enters your life to help close those doorways and  full detox with medical assistance when necessary, occurs.)  We open doorways to levels of being that can be very light  based and beautiful, but the doorways to places that have fear and pain as predominant energies also exist.  If a person is experiencing  powerful fear surrounding dreams/astrally travel/or movement between worlds, it is very important to find ways to navigate more safely, or to shield from those experiences.  Meditation has been a practice with incredible power passed through multiple religions, spiritual teachings and thousands of years.  Yoga also offers gifts of balance.  Ecstatic Dance can harness our energy in a new or balancing way, as well as practicing Mantra.  Forest Bathing or Salt water immersion can also clear our energy selves. Whatever modality, appeals naturally to the self, we instinctively ‘know’ that we are deserves tools on this plane of existence.  I have traveled through many dimensions in the course of this life, I do so with the most gifts of Love and safety when leading a healthful life of exercise in natural, pure foods, and meditation. I sincerely hope that those reading this have found and will continue to find tools that activate their higher perspective in a safe and conscious manner.

A prayer/affirmation/personal mantra that I have found useful is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess, Creator and Great Spirit, please guide me through the levels of consciousness that my current incarnation seeks to reveal at this time for the highest vibration of Peace, self knowledge and Healing.  Please allow me to remain connected to this body and time, so that I may travel safely through the etheric reality, and retain the knowledge that can be of most service to humanity and my own path of healing.  Please send the guides that I am aligned with at this time such Archangel Micheal and Shiva for safety, Kali or a Valkyrie for releasing lower energy that I seek to move beyond, White Buffalo Calf Woman for inner and world messages of Peace and any other angelic resonance or ascended masters, spirit guides or ancestors who step forward to be with me. Please help me to seamlessly integrate all messages and experiences, with gentleness and divine Assistance, and please help me to attract high vibrational friendships, teachers or students whom can benefit from the messages retained now and into the future. Thank you, Amen Om and Aho.”

With light and respect for those who see between worlds and realties,

Will and the Word

Energy healers, shamans, medicine people, light workers, and the teachers of many ancient spiritual mysteries, were aware of the power of intent and Personal Will.
Through my clairvoyant perceptions, the Law of Free Will when utilized, looks like strands of energy woven together that surrounds each individual. When able to harness our core essence, and project it outwards into such a light web, we create a safety net and personal boundary framework to filter out that which we are not willing to attract, and to amplify and welcome energy one has chosen to draw towards the self and into the Soul Path.
Through a belief in free will, we are able to choose different pathways, renegotiate said pathway, turn around and climb a few stairs to a new trail, or meander in any direction along our Soul Path. The concept of ‘The Law of Free Will’ is a popular term in current spiritual teachings. The law of Free Will dictates that in our current incarnations, we have multiple potentials for making a wide variety of choices that bring us closer to, or further away from, our core resonance and Divine gifts.

Willpower is a very real tool for etheric levels of creation. If one has a strong connection to ones core, the ‘Will’ broadcasts an equally strong framework/web/ safety net of all that which one has chosen or continues to choose in the future. The words that we think or choose to voice have as much power as we give them. For example, we can infuse the words ‘I Love You’ with incredible energy and power to change another perceptions of the light that is offered them the manifest universe. When we make a conscious choice, and give voice through prayer in our minds/hearts, written word, or speaking out loud, we create an energy field that honours that choice. Perhaps it will take an individual years of practice to connect with their internal power source, their core essence, or perhaps a person will incarnate with intuitive trust in utilizing this will. It is through directing our Will that we may choose to learn in a new way, to navigate massive life changes with struggle or harmony. For example, a pattern of repeating words in our head, whether in self support or criticism, clearly emits on the etheric level, and often manifests as a self fulfilling prophecy either for positive or negative manifestation and attraction.

To maintain the power of the framework we have set, we can choose to maintain commitment of personal will whenever thoughts or challenges, surrounding a choice surface. A person could for example choose to draw upon their core essence, and the power source of the divine networked of lIght, God/dess, to create a framework of ‘I will only attract positive opportunities for career/relationship/personal health development.’ The power of this statement relays on the power of the persons personal Will to build the framework that filters or amplifies. The framework is supported by the actions that also support each opportunity for growth.

For those who seek to identify current patterns, to renegotiate energy exchange and to voice their personal Will through words of power, I first allow my senses to unfold and to visualize myself within a pillar of white light. (White light is a powerful way to hold all external energy at bay, while the internal self re-configures and grounds into empowered being.) Once incased in white light, through the power of Will one can use a prayer/mantra/affirmation such as this:

“I call on the Divine Source to infuse my being with clarity and wisdom. To identify the patterns of manifestation, personal self worth and potential that I carry within my subconscious and conscious being. Please send the light of Archangel Micheal and Shiva to cut through fear based self fulfilling prophecies, so that more space is available in my energy body to be infused with empowered light. I am ready to grow and will approach this growth with courage and resilience. Thank you God/dess for guiding my new levels of awareness in a healthful and easily assimilated manner, and for opening new levels of consciousness through clairvoyance, clairaudiance, claircognition and clairsentience that remind me of all of the choices I may Freely make. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

We are each asked to clearly identify the current patterns and energy field we are broadcasting on a deep level. Do we truly believe we deserve to fail due to circumstances in adolescence or previous decades? Do we choose to take the steps towards our ultimate goals through struggle, with the will to persevere? Do we actually allow our true sense of personal Power, our Will, to be present in all of our decision making? Or are we giving our personal power away to an external force, another person, or self destructive familiar pattern?

What do we each ‘see’ or ‘feel’ is revealed through this devotion of energy and focus to truly perceiving our current life choices? What empowered aspects of self do we now choose to honour or courageously step forward towards? Ancient cultures fostered dreamers, those who could see beyond the physical, to the potential of what had been, could be or might be through the Will and focus of individuals or the masses. What does our individual heightened awareness allow us to Dream for humanity as a whole?
We are all powerful beings, especially when we give ourselves permission to trust the incredible power of our core self, and to direct this with our Free Will to affect personal and cosmic change.

May we each remember to be powerful,
with light,

*Fostering imagination and expansive thought can be a powerful tool towards self empowerment as an energy worker. I was battling my way through adolescence towards elf acceptance, I loved to visit the walls of books one of my siblings had amassed. From floor to ceiling, shelves held the precious colourful escape, many highly sensitive individuals seek when attempting to synthesis their multi-dimensional perceptions with the current culturally accepted ‘world’. Fantasy books are filled with gems of wisdom; energy work, commitment to a heroines or hero’s quest towards personal enlightenment, struggle, loss, colour and magical spirit guides in the forms of mythical creatures and landscapes. The phrase “The Will and the Word’ often appears in the delightful fantasy series ‘The Belgariad’ by David Eddings.

Pathways of Compassionate Light

“Coming to the earth plane is a soul level choice that we have all made during our cosmic evolution as incarnated beings at this time. The common threads of light that connect us are brilliant hues of varying vibrations, which have at their center the highest vibration: that of Divine Love. Although many will connect to Divine Love through the modality of different religions with varying names and manners of prayers, I truly believe that when we are connected to God/dess, what we are connecting to is the same radiance, the same light that permeates the universe and shines within us all; what people then choose to do with their inner light, is, of course, governed by the Law of Free Will. We all are given choices daily and throughout our lives to direct our light with free will. This theme repeats in many religions: when in communion with the highest manifestation of Love, we contribute most to the overall positive evolution of our individual lives, our communities, our species and the planet as a whole.
This book is a manifestation of my communion with my Higher Self, the cosmic universe as I perceive it at this time and a desire to communicate an affirmation of our capacity as humans to share in a daily realization of our souls’ ability to radiate and attract Love to the benefit of both soul path growth and universal blessings. In simple speak, this book is an exploration of each individual’s worthiness and capacity to be loved and express love to others. For ‘love’ is a word used daily in the ‘readings’ that I have facilitated for others and the messages I receive from the Angels most often is of teaching and encouraging others to love themselves and therefore share Love with the universe. It is the most prevalent and the ‘loudest’ message of them all.
Compassion and love for the self affords opportunities to heal our etheric, emotional, mental and physical bodies. Often people carry around an energy mantra of I am undeserving. This creates an energy field based on lack and so the energy of the universe that vibrates alongside the person is unbalanced and dim. To connect with pathways of compassionate light is to clear the energy field of the self with positive messages, such as: I can, I will, I deserve. This sends out a ‘chord’ of light to the universe that seeks to connect with the energy matrix uniting all living things: the mountains, the ocean, people, animals and the cosmos at large. Through being kind first to ourselves, feeding our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical bodies with positive energy and messages, we are able to become an intersection of light that is both supported and aids in sustaining the overall vibration of the universe. The Angels, Ascended Masters and our myriad array of Helpers from the Divine want us to love our Selves so deeply and truly that each cell in our magnificent body begins to vibrate with Love. This is the brightest, loudest, most powerful vibration. We cannot send out these powerful vibrations when we are feeding our own psyche with negative based thoughts. When we invest in ourselves with self-kindness, encouragement, compassion and grace, this personal loving care becomes an investment in the universe at large.”

“May all who read this be reminded daily that your Angels, Guides, Helpers, Higher Self and connection to God/dess is true and pure and that you are a manifestation of Divine Love in every cell of your body.
In offering of this recognition of the light within us all, I would like to share this affirmation that I have found useful for connecting to my Higher Self and the Light within the Universe:

“Dear Universal Consciousness, Archangels, Guardian Angels, Gods and Goddesses, Ascended Masters and Spirits of the Earth, please help me to recognize the light within others, let me perceive their highest vibrational potential so that I may be reminded of my own highest truth.”

Another variation of this affirmation is:

“May I speak, perceive and be a conduit of universal Love in all my actions, and may I forgive myself for the actions as a human that have filled me with guilt or fear, so that in releasing these fears, I make greater space for Love in all that I do. Help me [God/dess, Angels or the Ascended Master you feel most connected to at this time], on all levels to remain grounded into this present reality and incarnation so that I am able to manifest this Love on the physical plane. Amen. Om and Thanks.”

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.

For further exploration of this practise visit: Balancing the Wheel of Self

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

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,

Sign Posts for Life Purpose

Sign posts for life purpose can occur for many of us in times of heightened awareness. A memory that is as vivid as the present perhaps, such as the way one felt as a child, youth, teenager or young adult. It could be a moment in which a song left a deep emotional response, or someone told us something that changed the way we saw the world, through the years. We all must pass through trials on the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical level that test our commitment to self acceptance, Love and soul truths, yet during these times, we are often offered ‘sign posts’ to remember that we have choices in the paths we each follow and direct the course of our lives.img_2938

For example, we may remember a time in which we were very aware of an injustice or imbalance in the world as we experienced it. In those moments of heightened awareness and memory, we are viewing a ‘sign post’ of self that offers a choice regarding what we contribute to the world and the future generations individual or collective experience. Many people will seek to reject their understanding of self at some point in their lives. This can be a survival technique, when outside influences overwhelm the senses, or when one is in a situation in which one feels powerless. Many highly sensitive souls will yearn for the light connections they experienced before they entered a physical body, and feel as though their life walk is very lonely or separated from the source during transformational times in childhood,adolescence or adulthood. Yet, in attuning to the particular sensitivities we all carry, we become aware that we can be both physically present and spiritual expansive, a radiant conduit of light and Divine Source that effects our personal and collective experiences.

When I was a child and began elementary school, I was often overwhelmed by the ‘noise’ of so many people in close proximity to myself energetically. The thoughts, feelings and emotions being emitted in a social setting, often felt as though they were drowning out my own perception of personal identity and feeling, as a highly sensitive and clairvoyant child. I certainly felt that being so highly sensitive was something I wished to escape instead of embrace. I remember being in grade one and wishing desperately that the class had some ‘quiet time’ each day, so that I could sort out my feelings and boundaries. Yet all these decades later, I have the extreme privilege of teaching children yoga in classrooms of elementary schools. I get to help create a peaceful half hour for each child to learn, integrate, interpret and balance their own being. What a gift, that all of those years ago, I felt so strongly as a child myself, that I have helped to manifest a reality that nourishes my past memory and future generations self awareness.

We experience sometimes joy, and other times pain, during the growth or challenging scenarios that remind us of our extreme sensitivity. Yet, when we emerge, having chosen to accept our own beauty and gifts, just as they are, we are offered the experience of the blissful nature of our Light and Soul, radiant and pure. Through the trials that test or challenge us, I ask all to remember, we are connected in many ways, we are each never alone on the spiritual level of being, and we all, have so much power for bringing compassion, peace and divine Love into this world.

A prayer that can be helpful in attuning to ones own light is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of creation, please help me to accept the ways that I am truly sensitive, so that I may foster the strength this sensitivity gives me for bringing about positive change in my life and the world at large. Please send me clear messages and signs that I can easily recognizes with my sensitivity, that help me to trust I am working in accordance with my Soul Purpose, or able to change course to connect more deeply with what is blissful. Thank you Amen, Om and Aho.”

There are times in life in which many of us will feel as if we are drifting without a fixed course, wondering if we are passengers or captains of our own ship. Yet, as we attune to the ways in which we are personally sensitive and receptive to the Divine Source, and our intuitive, psychic sense of knowing, we are able to discern that even during times in which we are drifting, there are several ‘sign posts’ along the way that offer guidance towards our life purpose. The spiritual realm is rich with messages that come forward to each of us in a number of ways.

We may be clairsentient, and responsive with our physical bodies through reactions to a landscape, person, societal or cultural phenomena. Or we may be clairaudiant, and have a heightened awareness of sound, or words, that stay with us, or rise to the surface of our consciousness. We have have spontaneous ideas, creative problem solving or dreams that appear in our minds, encouraging us to follow a new path in alignment with our gift of claircognition. Allowing a job path or relationship to develop in which it is safe to foster these spontaneous messages, understanding and inspirations to be spoken or written about for the physical world to explore. We may be clairvoyant, in that the image of both past, present and future possibilities resurfaces during times in which we seek to alter our course in life, connecting more firmly with the direction that affords the sharing of gifts with humanity and the celebration of self acceptance.

In whatever way our ‘sign posts’ manifest, it is our personal responsibility to pay attention and have faith that we do, in fact ‘know’ on a deep instinctive level what our Soul  and Life Purpose on this planet truly is.

Thank you for shining,

with light,

Akashic Records and Intuitive Leaps

copyright remains with the artist Jane Shepherd, image used with permission.

Life presents us each with learning opportunities. Some of them are intensely challenging. We are asked to grow in ways that feel physically, emotionally and mentally uncomfortable. Yet our Spirit self, is expansive and bold, aware that growth occurs unendingly, and as we each allow it, we have greater space for experiencing and sharing the gifts we brought when we incarnated onto the planet.

 

When we seek to align our Soul Purpose on a subconscious and conscious level, we must first cut through several layers of etheric debris that we carry about associated with ‘fear’. These can be patterns that we have just developed,  or had passed down through generations on physical choices, actions, and self fulfilling prophesy. They can be patterns we have ingested from a broader influence, a result of cultural influences in our current society. Or they can be karmic imprints from our previous lives, lessons we have brought forward into our current life walk, with a further opportunity to make alternate choices and grow in the way that we need at this time.

There is an aspect of conscious mental being, that invites messages from the etheric realm, through inspiration, instant understanding, and intuitive leaps. In extrasensory awareness, this is called ‘claircognition’, and like all extra sensory sensitivities, we are each able to receive higher guidance in this way. Many flashes of intuitive knowledge are discarded as a person lives a patterned life of discounting ‘far fetched’ ideas, inspiration or possibilities. For those that feel aware of previous lifetimes, we are each offered the strengths and gifts on a spiritual level, developed in that previous life, as well as an opportunity to integrate how choices previously unfolded personally and collectively when those lifetimes were experienced. During the remembering process, a person may feel drawn to another landscape on the planet, a certain climate zone that ‘feels’ like home. An intuitive flashes may recommend a short or long journey alone. The ego based fear pattern asserts it would be selfish. Yet if we honored our impetus to grow and explore, what gifts of self worth, knowledge and enlightenment would we then share with all those we returned too? This can be an indication that an aspect of the spiritual being is experiencing an unfolding level of consciousness, where by visiting such a place, either physically visiting, or devoting time and energy to meditation or contemplation of that place, affords a deeper understanding of self. The idea of purchasing a plane ticket and flying around the globe can be one the ego voice talks ourselves out of. Yet holding that image in our mind, visiting the spot in psychic memory or through a series of photos in books or online, still is honoring this flash of intuitive understanding, non linear as it appears. When I have listened to my guidance, to travel or explore a ‘far reaching memory’ an ‘akashic record’ I have always received a greater understanding and deepening of my own strength.

Our intuitive flash may ask for physical healing modalities, the pattern of fear may assert there is not money or time for such a devotion, yet through making physical investment in well being, suddenly we are more energized, and have even more hours of the day in which we feel motivated to create, achieve and be of service for others. The current energy on the planet has a swirling mix of karmic debris, anxious collective fears, and some exhaustion mixed in. Yet there are waves of light, Divine Love, and creation being beamed towards each of us and the planet at large, simultaneously. In honoring an intuitive flash, of what we truly ‘need’ to feel aligned with our Soul Purpose and at peace within ourselves, we are tuning in, cutting through chords, of lower vibrations based on fears. Through this, we create and energy pathway, a remembrance of Higher Self, that affords gifts of all kinds to flow through us and our lives. The energy pathways, once opened, send streams of light into our etheric beings, like pure water filling a vessel. The first step to feeling refilled, refueled and reintegrating vital life force, is to acknowledge the ways we are ready and wanting to shift outmoded patterns. Do we feel that we constantly hear negative concepts in the world? We can then empower ourselves to shift the pattern by seeking to notice, acknowledge and celebrate small and large acts of kindness, bravery and love around us. Do we seek to feel more hopeful? When was the last time we allowed ourselves to visualize and imagine a world or personal vocation, that fills us with hope? Are their places on the planet we feel drawn to engage with? We can each find a way of doing so. Perhaps we will pray each day for the place and its people, perhaps we will join a volunteer organization that offers service of positive impact in such a place, or we will make a dedication to address one of the sorrows in our own lives, so that we may better mentor others in their own healing journey through sharing our unique stories and perspectives.

A prayer I often use, when seeking to navigate lower vibrations, life challenges, and a sense of balance is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please send your light warriors to surround myself and those who are open to receiving at this time, encouragement, for connecting to our Higher Selves, so that as we make choices, it is with clear reception of wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the ways in which each human life is connected throughout time and space. Please send me the pateint assistance of Jesus, to walk beside me and offer gentle reminders that when I struggle, I am only growing and deepening my inner strength, and capacity to view myself and this world, with Compassion. Please send the enveloping light of Quan Yin, so that I may be reminded of the timelessness of being, and treat my fellow humans, animals and this natural beautiful earth, with Compassion. Thank you for reminding me to clearly receive any intuitive messages towards change, action and creative problem solving that the etheric support team working with me at this time, is beaming for my own and humanities collective well being. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

This is a cosmic unfolding in which we are each offered opportunities to choose which wave of energy we are willing to connect with and receive from. We can see the sorrow and challenges, yet dedicate through a life of service and personal empowerment, energy to encouraging positive change, manifestation and healing on personal and global levels.

with light and compassion for us all,

Kamia

Advanced Shielding through Expanding Awareness Video

Thank you for joining me for a discussion and practise of etheric alignment and shielding technique through visualization and prayer.

“I like to think of the ultimate in alchemical magic to be a person’s choice to change their life and infuse the areas that have caused them pain, or the lessons they are ready to release and to change the energy within themselves into ‘gold’. By changing our own internal vibration, the external world begins to vibrate and manifest at an equal rate. Then new opportunities, change and growth occurs. When looking at the internal energies of people around me who make a conscious choice to change their lives by beginning with their internal selves, my etheric eyes perceive this intention like liquid gold, or flowing honey, infusing their being and beginning to radiate outwards. When a person is vibrating in such a way, they also act like a beacon for those around them who are curious or yearning for self-transformation as well. When engaged in a transformational period, it is particularly important to maintain ‘healthy boundaries’ for during transformation we can feel extremely open and vulnerable.”
