Moving through Barriers, Lightening our Etheric Loads

We each carry energy with us until we are ready to process it or share it ,for individual, mutual or communal healing.  On the spiritual level, peoples auras and energy bodies shift and change.  Picking up pieces of memory from one another, from different places on the planet, or during astral travel.  We all learn, through uncovering  new levels of personal consciousness, in direct relation to our feelings surrounding ‘safety,’ and empowerment. There can be moments in Life in which we may find, we suddenly feel as though a physical load has been removed from our bodies, and yet there has been no removal of an actual cloth and metal frame back-pack, from our physical life.  Energy burdens, lessons, the connections we choose in support of one another, as well as the heavy karmic debris we work through in each lifetime, can have a very physical ‘feel’ of alleviation when we have mastered or completed a particular etheric lesson, pattern or shift.

Those who are highly sensitive, who feel comfortable, or continue to seek in their spiritual unfolding, become adept at the shedding and gathering, and eventually the dismissal of these energy loads as time and life allows. We all experience moments of heaviness on the etheric level, sometimes as we carry another person, or a room full of people or an entire family.  Yet we are all capable of moving through barriers or obstacles that feel as though they are physically present, to realize that everyone on their own experience of life, is entirely capable of carrying themselves. Even the brightest of spirits benefit from time in sacred space, contemplation and can go through long years of exploration on a deeper level that feels very heavy as they clear multiple lifetimes, and genetically transferred patterns passed down through multiple generations of ancestors.  

For highly sensitive Souls, there may come a time in which we may feel an impulse  to ‘see’ the truth of ourselves and our current reality, and yet feel as if we are blocked by a heavy energy from our past in this or previous lives.  Sometimes barriers that we ‘sense’ to our ability to perceive on multiple levels, are in place because they are keeping us safe in some way.  Opening to our gifts of clairvoyance, claircognition, clairaudience and clairsentience, may not need to happen instantaneously.  If we were to know all, or see all, at once however, on all of the other levels of self, we would require immense time, space and emotional safety to be ready to process and assimilate this knowledge.  An example of a barrier I ‘sensed’ in a close family relationship, as discussed in ‘Soul Evolution’ Chapter 2, related to a familiar theme many light workers carry of a past life memory of persecution.  To work through this energy block, I needed time and space and age to processes painful feelings of loss and betrayal attached to that lifetime. Yet when I had the sacred space needed, I was able to move through that resonance, through a clairvoyant dream. Quite quickly, I was then able to see the valuable beauty and lessons I could bring forward to lighten my own energy and the communal energy of so many through healing that aspect of soul memory. Yet for myself, time alone at a particular age, was what I had been ‘waiting for’ to lighten my personal load and ‘see’ on a new level.  Through patience and discipline in the spiritual practice that resonates most with us at this time, we all have the power to begin/continue to ‘see’ in new ways.  Yet we shift the energy instinctively at a speed that is healthful for our mental, emotional and physical integrations.

A Prayer/Affirmation/ Mantra that I have found useful in the past when seeking to move beyond personal or perceived barriers on the etheric level is as follows:

“Dear Divine Source, Godd/ess of Creation, please help my Higher Self be amplified in conscious present at this time.  Please surround me in the protective light of the highest resonance, through which on Love may enter and all fear based vibrations are held at bay.  Please send me clear messages through feelings, sight, sound and spontaneous understanding surrounding {describe relationship/situation/perceived barrier} I ask that all karmic debris be cleared in the most gentle manner for my personal sense of Empowerment and healing at this time. Please send empowering light through the Guardian Angels of those who effect me at this time, so that they too, may remember they have choices for personal well being and knowledge.  I am willing and ready to Heal in the ways that I need, and to share messages of healing with others through dedication to my own authenticity and unfolding.  Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

Every person on the planet is a powerful healer in their own right. We all have the power to  shift in consciousness personally.  We all have the power to encourage others to seek personal awareness, empowerment and unfolding.  It is okay to acknowledge that paths we take may differ from those we Love, have loved or will love in the future.  To support their personal speed for enlightenment, or seeking new levels of consciousness.  Through the wheel of time, the many lifetimes we may choose to cycle through, we will all have multiple opportunities to ‘lighten’ our personal spiritual loads, to move beyond barriers on each level of being and to offer a helping hand to another.  Just as given time, water flowing  changes the shape of rocks and stones irrevocably, so too do lives lived in devotion to authentic being, change the experience of the following lifetimes, of the children whom carry the familial genetic code that follows, and to a world that is slow, slowly evolving with Compassion and Potential ever day.

Our Relationship To Time and Self Empowerment

I’ve been thinking allot lately about Time. The time that we allow ourselves to pursue our deepest dreams, the time we return to in an instant of memory or inspiration, the perception of self and time that can shift during an epiphany that creates more self awareness in an instant that in the previous full year. What is one’s relationship to time, and how does it empower or disempower us?

As a soul that remembers several previous lifetimes, I carry around a belief about time that creates an expansive landscape of possibility and wonder in my life. As I see the world evolve, shift and change, as I witness people exploring their own personal soul path, and ways of growing, opening, receiving and sharing their personal light, I feel as though Time offers gifts of limitless potential. On days where I am devoted to the absolute moment, such as moving houses this previous week, I notice the way concepts of time that we each carry, effect us all. Some concepts are filled with joy, while others such as ‘there isn’t enough time for …..’ thought patterns, radiate outwards manifesting less potential for joy. A powerful practice to shift our personal relationship with our perception of time, is to make a list of the top five priorities one’s deepest self carries.

Mine is something like:

Share Compassion

Elevate the vibration towards Divine Love

Be honest about who I am, and encourage others to be honest and empowered

Celebrate this beautiful Earth

Nurture Children

Having a conversation with the self, through honoring the deepest yearning of the spirit is an empowering act. There are the superficial tasks we will often ‘think’ of as we consider the allotment of time and priorities for our day, but when given the opportunity to truly connect with the ‘self’ on a deeper level, the priorities will shift. We can still achieve our tasks, our responsibilities, and our time commitments, yet by carrying forward a firmer understanding of what we truly wish to share and experience with the world, the passage of time throughout the day, and the awareness of the world on a grander scale, is made possible. What are the ways that familiar patterns with a fearful vibration are effecting one’s perception of time? Free Will allows us each to recognize and shift away from such patterns.

An affirmation/prayer that I have found useful for centering my awareness is:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, help me to see the ways in which my Soul is infinite, and my current lifespan on the planet is filled with opportunities for me to speak my Truth, make choices that resonate with my Soul Path, and allow me to share all of the gifts I have brought forward for connecting, encouraging and manifesting Peace with others. I ask that any Angelic light rays, previous life memories, ascended master messages, or encouragement from guides and/or the fairy kingdom assist me at this time in making space for my deepest priorities in this life. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

If there is a yearning, a desire for change, an intuitive flash, or a self nurturing practice that arises in the mind after such an affirmation has been repeated, take action. What is the movement, shift, choice or awareness that can be brought forward to begin each day in a manner that resonates with the ‘core’ of one’s spirit? Perhaps it is greeting the morning with sound such as mantra, singing, or music and gentleness, or through movement in nature. Perhaps it is seeing relationships with others in a new way, or viewing the expanse of ones life with a deeper sense of patience, focus and humor. Perhaps it is as simple as slowing the breathing, and taking eight deep slow breaths to set the tone for a physical pattern based on peace. In whatever manner our relationship to Time and self manifest, let it be through an active awareness that renegotiates perceptions and personal empowerment, to establish a more Joy filled life. Everyone deserves to experience Joy.

with light and respect for your journey,

Kamia

Blessings in Retreat

Image

I can remember the first time my mom told me ‘you are your own best friend’.  I was around four.  I was disappointed, it seemed like someone else would be more fun to play strawberry shortcake with. Over the years however, I have taken that advice to heart, for truly, as many wise people will say, the beliefs and attitude we carry about ourselves, are reflected in the relationships we invite into our lives, and the learning opportunities we create through them.

I have recently returned from a much need ‘retreat’.  An immersion in the natural world, and my own inner silence.  The lesson I am most grateful for, is the remembering of my ability to nourish my Self.  Much of day to day living is a challenge to remain centered in our inner truth.  Yoga, meditation, artwork, music, nature, dance, all are reminders of the infinite beauty and light we carry within, but if we do not allow ourselves the time, to truly connect internally, some of this beauty can feel out of reach.

Retreat is not about giving up responsibility, or no longer fighting for what we believe in.  In my heart and mind, retreat is about allowing that we must step forward as ‘our own best friends’ and acknowledge that we need a section of time to allow for inner healing, processing of buried emotions, and self kindness.

Even five minutes a day in ‘retreat’, a special outdoor bench, the bathtub, or a pool of sunlight on the floor, can be turned into a ‘sacred space’ through which, in a meditative state, we connect with our ‘inner knowing’.  The ego tells us ‘you can’t, you don’t, you don’t know how.” The inner knowing replies, “I am able, I am strong, I deserve love, I can do this.”

From the place of inner knowing, we are better able to differentiate between our responsibilities to ourselves, and the subsequents gifts and responsibilities we have in regards to others: family, friends, the world at large. When we nurture and nourish ourselves, we lead with a powerful example for those around us that they too deserve to find a place of peace within, and act, instead of re-act, accordingly.  In marriages, as one person grows, we give our partner’s an opportunity to grow.  We cannot grow for them, but we can encourage them on their own journey.  In parenting we are able, from a place of inner peace, to encourage our children to know and express their own unique gifts, needs, and truth.  As co-workers, from a place of inner knowing, the small ways in which the people around us express their own desire to reignite their inner flame, become more obvious, and less like criticism or ineptitude. On the grandest of scales, it is with a connection to our inner self, that we are abel to look around at the world that surrounds us, to feel gratitude for it’s goodness, to wish to shine light into the places that are filled with fear, and to celebrate the blessings of being incarnated as a human at this time.

Truthfully, as you are your own best friend, you open your receptive nature to connecting with your angels, your guides, your animal helpers, and the very soul of the earth around you.  In being ‘your own best friend’ you are creating an opportunity to allow the divine to reach through, send healing and energy to your heart and self, and to realize that you are supported by many etheric beings.

 

 

May your life afford an opportunity for ‘retreat’ whether for a week, a month, a day or even five minutes this afternoon,

With loving kindness,

Kamia
