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.

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

Choosing to Embrace Our Light

The light and the dark, or in other words, Love and Fear, are familiar terms that people often use to describe the clash or synthesis of two opposing forces. The radiant energy of the manifest reality and the cosmos at large flows around, through and with us in all ways during our physical experience as humans. When we shed our bodies, we return to this cosmic force, the energy that creates, and connects each Soul to the God/dess. During our earth experience, we are sensitive to the energy that moves around through and with us, each and every day. We may choose to ignore or honor this energy during each choice we make. The Law of Free Will allows us all to be choosing every day, through out the course of our present lives, will I create a synthesis of energy and self? Will I allow the common tide of emotion or energy around me to dictate the ways in which I live, love, or express my inner gifts?

Light workers carry a bountiful supply of enthusiasm, Joy, Love and light to share and shine at the world. Yet there will be countless times in which the two opposing energies, of fear and Love will swirl about each individual and ‘test’ their resolve to choose in their own, and the planets highest good. A Light worker is often highly sensitive to the emotions of others, and may spend a majority of their time seeking to please, placate, or make happy those around them, in an effort to have less intensity or anger directed their way. Yet, if that same Light worker devotes time and energy to honoring the strengths they carry for radiating joy, the people they attract into their lives, the opportunities for fulfilling love-based work, and self empowerment, multiply. A common misconception for many Light workers is to believe that through a sacrifice of selfhood, the world around them, becomes happier. This is the opposite energy that they incarnated to share. By being empowered with courage to teach others that they too deserve a joyful and fulfilling life, a Light worker carries the most alchemical magic, by first allowing themselves to be joyful. The most powerful tool I have learned in this life, for diverting fear based energy, is to truly ‘see’ that criticism,anger and fear are often an expression of another persons longing to be self confident, self loving, and self empowered to follow their dreams, and rediscover a vision they once carried for a new way of life. It can be painful and hard to witness and experience the rage, fear or frustrations of others on a mass scale,yet, by finding tools for remaining centered in our own personal power, we are able to see that just as there appears to be an unending cycle of fear, there is an infinite supply of Divine Love.IMG_1775

In nature, the waves of resonance from all living things, caress, infuse and saturate the magnetic,energetic, personal resonance of those who venture into the wild places, the green and colorful, pure water, fresh air spaces, this earth is so resplendent with. Yet the majority of the planet no longer sleeps beneath trees and stars, but in houses, and we often work, live, and run errands in buildings, across concrete, and travel in cars, buses and trains. Inside each place we are able to tune into the collective unconscious, the energy of those that surround us on a near and universal scale. We may find moments in nature, to saturate and recharge, where choices in life become more clear, just as our personal rhythms do, aligning with the earth’s natural energy. As a predominantly clairvoyant and sensitive person, I often ‘see’ energy like waves of color and light moving through or around a person’s experience. People can choose to allow the collective energy to either drain their personal essence of vital life force, or to attune themselves with a energizing, revitalizing empowering essence. The choices that we make during times in which we do not feel saturated and supported by light and love, are the ones that ‘temper,’ refine, and ultimately test the strength of our spirit. The moments when we are most afraid, and the ego-mind is shouting discouragement, and yet, we find that a glimmer of hope, or yearning for a deeper sense of joyful self, still manages to assert itself, and brings forth enough courage that we do choose to align with our Higher Self and Soul Path, are the choices that will often define the course of our lives.

The infinite supply is a network of light that extends through each human, all of nature, the cosmic reality and is inter-dimensional. We simply choose to be connected to our own light and the fear based feelings begin to dissipate through our powerful Will. Sometimes this willpower diffuses the lower vibrations most effectively by ‘remembering’ on a Soul level, that we are each strong, capable, and worthy of Love. A prayer that I have practiced in variations of, for moments in life in which I am asked to choose between continuing forward on a path of joy, or one of self repression is:

“Dear God/ess, please help me to connect with the ways in which I am strong, capable, and worthy of experiencing Divine Love and Joy in this life. Please send the Archangel Micheal to cut the chords of fear I have attached to me at this time, so that it is with a sense of personal and cosmic freedom that I choose the course of my life in this moment. I ask that Archangel Jophiel assist me in seeing the beauty that I carry, and its reflection in the many beautiful people and places on this planet. Please send the fairy kingdom to help me navigate my path on the physical reality, so that I connect with the people, places, the Soul Group with whom I can bring and share the most light, while feeling supported on my Soul Path. Thank you, Amen, OM, and Aho.”

May we each, in our capacity as Light workers, choose this day, and all days in our collective future, to honor the Divine Love we are capable of carrying, broadcasting, and amplifying in all ways.

With light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

The Strongest Version of ‘Me’ Asks for Help

I recently taught a writers workshop in which I asked participants to finish the sentence/thought ‘The Strongest Version of Me….” The answers were diverse, remarkable, and poignant. The example I used for my own strongest version, was to discuss the theory that the strongest version of ‘self’ is not an isolated individual, but rather a self that is willing to seek assistance and identify what aspects of friends, family, community, or spiritual support are needed to affect positive change. Identifying that we are in need of assistance does not make us weak or a burden to others, rather it makes us strong, willing to heal, and balanced in self awareness.

On the physical reality this can translate to asking friends or loved ones, or health/wellness professionals to offer a helping hand in thought, action, or emotional encouragement. On the spiritual plane the gift of my clairvoyance allows me to foster awareness of the threads, ribbons and ropes of light that emanate outwards from each individual and connect us to the wider world. Asking for help on the spiritual plane, sends streams of light between individuals and the divine Source.

In the etheric reality I am constantly  ‘asking for assistance’. I attribute this mainly to my own clairvoyant awareness of the etheric reality, and the constant presence of angels, ascended masters, ancestors, fairies, and the Divine I ‘feel’ connected to. I also attribute it to practice and having had someone in my life who lead by example. My mom used to ask her angels to provide the perfect parking place when we went grocery shopping, I used to giggle, then squeal in delight, as invariably, she always found a place directly in front of the door. It was a small matter, to find parking, in the larger scheme of life and the challenges we each face. Yet, if we each can find the good humor to ask for assistance during the simple things, we are better prepared to call for etheric support and assistance during the times in our life where challenges feel insurmountable, grief all encompassing, and isolation from the Divine Love of the universe.IMG_1322

Great or small, the challenges we each overcome daily and throughout our life path, it is through allowing ourselves to seek ‘help’ from physical, emotional, mental and spiritual sources, that we are better able to survive and overcome the challenges.

Many people on the planet are being currently ‘asked’ by their higher selves to commit to a life path with a resonance of “I am worthy.” This can manifest as a willingness to feel worthy for giving and receiving Love, Joy, Abundance, Compassion, and Divine Light. When we choose to embrace a personal life path that celebrates these attributes, massive life changes often occur. For example, people who heal the aspects on the emotional or spiritual level connected to feelings of worthiness for Love, will attract Soul Mate relationships and experience fertility in their lives through career opportunities, pregnancy, or birthing of dreams. People who heal aspects of themselves surrounding worthiness for experiencing Compassion, transform their world view for how they contribute and are vital, needed, and appreciated in the greater world and cosmic reality at large. Though we each will have different levels of fear or karma surrounding our beliefs of self worthiness, we can seek help, assistance and support from but the physical reality and the spiritual as we courageously grow in each direction.12923155_1025759994125922_1666709770043264950_n

On the spiritual level I have experienced incredible levels of healing and awakening through prayer, affirmation and mantra. Two of my favorite prayers/affirmations include:

For Compassion

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send the healing light of Jesus and Quan Yin to help me feel more Compassion towards myself and every living being. Please help me to receive Compassion, so that I am better able to share it with others. I ask that I receive clear messages, images and feelings, that allow me to identify andy ego based patterns that I can release to allow for a greater connection to the Divine within me, and the world and cosmos at large.Thank You, Amen and OM”

For Love

“Dear God/dess, Divine Light Source, please help me to feel connected to the resonance of Divine Love. Please send the Archangels most suited to working alongside my life path, to help me in removing fear or karma blocking this reception and awareness of Love. I ask that the fairy kingdom send me helpers to attract people, animals and plants into my life that will share and receive only the purest Love with me. Thank you for assistance on every level, Amen, OM and Aho.”

On the pathways of personal empowerment, transformation, and self actualization, we can all inspire support and contribute to one another’s journey. To do this, sometimes it requires the ‘strength of self’ to ask for help. In whatever capacity we are all growing, through connections to one another we become a wave of healing and light that moves across the planet.

May we each feel strong, supported, connected and loved at this time.

With light and respect for your journey,

Integration of the Christ Consciousness, Warrior-ship for Peace

One of the most powerful rays of light that we all have access to working with is a stream of energy from the ‘source’ the God/dess of creation that can be called ‘The Christ Consciousness’. This is a level of vibrational energy that attunes us with personal and cosmic levels of wisdom, truth, and strength. The Christ Consciousness energy can easily flow through our crown chakras and help to align our different levels of being, for assistance and strength when living with integrity for fulfillment of our Soul Paths. This energy when it enters our being, can be like a lightening bolt that activates any areas of our body and self that are seeking to become more aligned with our Soul Truth and Purpose.

When our seventh chakra is functioning in a optimal manner, our reception of universal energy, the light based vibrations of the universe, flow freely and with clarity into the different layers of our being. This is like a stream of light that infuses our aura, our energetic being, clears our mind to impart wisdom, intuitive flashes and clarity on the mental level, allows for the truest intention of emotional experience and reception of Divine Love on the emotional level, and allows for a healthy, energized body on the physical level. For some, this activation can be gentle, while at other times this ‘clearing’ of stagnant energy and making way for new vital life force, can manifest with certain physical responses that are not as comfortable. For example, as the chakras in the body, the energy nodes that correspond with the master glands as well as spiritual and emotional centers, clear, the physical body can undergo significant changes.

When I am receiving energy from the Christ Consciousness through my crown chakra, and stagnant energy is being removed, I have often experiences headaches or nasal congestion. When I give myself permission to claim time and space to receive light, and anchor it through my consciousness, I am better able to release the ‘tension; in my head, and to ‘see’ with clarity the changes that are needed in my physical, emotional mental and spiritual reality to be a more balanced Self. As a highly clairvoyant individual, there are times when I ‘block’ what I can see simply for the convenience of focusing on other aspects of life. When I need to clear out the pathways of personal reception, I will often get a massive beam of light at my crown chakra, that releases the images I have been avoiding seeing.

IMG_2194

For people who are sensitive to energy in other ways, such as through clairsentience, the ability to ‘feel’ their personal truth and perceive the truth of the world around them, reactivation of their connection with the Christ Consciousness can clear out stagnant energy at their heart centers and stomachs. This can manifest as chest colds and upset stomachs as the body is forced to slow down, and process feelings on several levels. I have noticed that several people in the last two weeks are activating an alignment with the Christ Consciousness, and harnessing this infusion of light in different ways. The light as it pertains to our individual Soul Paths, asks us to each step forward after such integration with sharing of our personal strength and knowledge to assist and encourage others. Some people may find that they are feeling drawn to a shift in lifestyle job, and manner of expressing themselves in respectful relationship. The Christ Consciousness is sending waves of light o any who are open to making these shifts to wards a more personally empowered, truthful, gentle, and strong way of being.

To identify where the Christ Consciousness energy is seeking to heal and empower the self, I offer this practice:

*Find a comfortable place to sit or lay. Place the hands, with fingers interlaced, over the navel. Taking gentle breaths, visualize a light blue light entering the crown of the head, and flowing down to the tips of the toes. Continue to focus on this light, entering the head, and flowing down through the toes, and notice if any areas of the body, seek to have the light suffuse them with greater attention. If so, note the area of the body and ask the self with words or intentions such as:

“God/dess and Christ Consciousness please empower my higher self to clearly indicate wheat I can do to facilitate the greatest healing and alignment on all my levels of being at this time. I am open to receiving angelic and love based assistance in all ways. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

For each of our own alignment, we can receive messages about what is most helpful and healing at this time. Some of us may be drawn to fresh air and outdoor time, others to journalling ideas, others to images of plants and flowers that are helpful to us both visually or as teas/ and foods. Some of us may need to release emotions through tears or through communications with loved ones that we have been avoiding. If these communications are with a departed loved one, consider writing a letter, and planting it with seeds outside or burning it, to release the sentiment into the world. The Christ Consciousness aids us in having courage clarity and truth as we commit to a path of personal empowerment, as Warriors of Peace. Peace can be on a personal level of alignment as well as through our commitment to being advocates of peacefulness on a grander scale.

Examples I am seeing are the divine masculine asking for men who have words of wisdom and strength to step forward as leaders who speak form the heart, both within their families, circles of friends, and communities. Some will be asked to work with children, as leaders in non-violence, respect and compassion. Others will be encouraged to starts men’s groups that create collaborative support systems for healing from their pasts, others still will be become teachers of gentle self awareness modalities such as yoga, meditation, and mentors in nature, either through guiding outdoor experiences or spearheading gardening communities. Women can also be carriers of the Christ Consciousness in powerful ways, and this manifestation at this time will be evident as women claim their personal voices towards a future for the planet through connections with one another globally and individually at this time. Many women Leaders are coming into their power significantly with the assistance and support of the Christ Consciousness.

In whatever manner we all each synthesizing this powerful light, may it be for the greatest healing both individually and universally.

Self Empowerment for Divine Love at First Sight

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

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

A simple prayer I have used to empower myself:

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

A simple prayer I have often said for others:

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

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

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

with light,

Kamia
