Diffusing Anxiety

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What About the 6th Sense?

When a person asks a small child, how big they are, many children will stretch their arms out as far as they can, and with straining effort that their little chubby arms cannot encapsulate, say “SOOOOOO big.” The child is telling the truth. Their spirit, although patiently navigating, first steps, tumbles and the giant challenge of adult sized stairs, is infinitely larger than their human body. Their bright innocent light, is still aware at this stage of childhood, that ‘they’ stretch outwards, upwards, and in each direction, miles from their physical body. Their perception of space, the being of human and also this infinite being, is existing in a cooperative manner that allows for intuition and awareness of people they interact with, the environment and elements, and of their myriad array of helpers on the etheric plane; fairies, angels, ascended masters, god/dess, earth spirits and guides.

In the beginning, when a bright and light resonating soul comes into the world in the tiny infant body they will inhabit for this lifespan, there is the first realization of a new perception of space. Sometimes this can bring out allot of tears. In my case, my parents claim I came out into the world, looked around, at them and my siblings, had some breast milk and promptly went to sleep. On days where I feel several lifetimes old, I think back to this moment and ruefully laugh, for even with several lifetimes of birthing and living and dying, one of the lessons I return to with the occasional outburst of frustration and fist shaking at the sky, is for inhabiting, in the physical body, a small space.

When does this perception of space become confining or ‘smaller’? I think each person may have a different time. A trauma, or a hurt, where they felt small all of a sudden, and the giant reach of their spirit felt knocked off of center. For myself, as I sat in my grade one desk, clutching rainbow colored pencils, my first negative interaction with space occurred when the teacher wrote on the board and said “There are 5 senses.” In my head, I said, “What about the 6th sense?” As an intuitive and empathetic child, looking around at my class mates, many bright eyes and big spirited, I waited to see who would be brave enough to ask the question. There was silence. I chewed on my pencil and waited until lunch to go home, and ask my mom why the teacher wasn’t talking about the 6th sense, by far my favorite sense, the one I relieved upon more than any other to navigate life. I do not remember her response, but it was something along the lines of “Well, maybe the teacher wasn’t told there is one?”

Last week I had a wonderful and spontaneous conversation with a woman about the spirit realm, and I thanked her for her ‘openness’. She replied, “Yes, it is true, isn’t it? People will speak to the level they are spoken to?” And I agreed, and then smiled. This blogpost is in honor of her words.

Over the last year, as I have shared these blogposts, the musings of my 6th sense, I have witnessed an incredible transformation in the way I have interacted with many people in my life, and many beautiful new people I am encountering (for the first time in this life, but ‘again’ from others.) I spend my favorite time and energy ‘speaking’ with this writing of ‘more’, and in celebrating how ‘big’ we all are. It is my apology and reconciliation for the six year olds from my younger self, who got told they were small. It is my apology and reconciliation to the world at large and the adults that are all around me, who have forgotten, and been told that they are small.

I ask my five year old daughter, how big are you, and she gets a twinkle in her eye and shouts back “HUGE!” and then she flexes her chubby arms at me. I hope to have her say the same thing for all the years of her life. I know that their will be times where she may not. I see friends and light workers, who have days where their shoulders curl, and they heads droop and they speak in small voices, and they do not feel the enormity of their spirits, and support of their team of angelic realm helpers. And that is okay, because I have days where I feel small for a few minutes too. However, those days have gotten fewer and farther between, and I want to share this feeling, this expansive, knowledge that we are ‘more’ and ‘big’ and ‘beautiful’ in our enormous energy rich selves.

Here is my prayer for myself, for my child, for each child coming into the world, and for the adults who were once children and told or shown that they did not have light wings,

“I ask that the angels come into this room to the space that any reading these words is inhabiting. I pray that the resonant energy of the Christ Consciousness, and the Archangels, as messengers, and light rays of the Creator/God/dess source of creation, be with us each in this moment, and in the way that we are each most receptive to messages, whether through thought, feeling, sound, or image. Help us to receive a greater awareness of our Higher Selves and aura’s. Please bring these messages all day long. Please remind us that we can reach out with these energy selves, to feel rain falling a mile away, to sense people as they come towards us, or move away from us. Please help this ‘greater awareness’ to be gentle, and to show us also the incredible tools we have for deflecting and shrugging away all lower energies. Help us to clean the space that we inhabit, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. And please help us all, to feel energized by this reminder of greater self, empowered to act in our daily lives, with this knowing. Thank you angels, ascended masters, fairies, spirit guides and earth helpers. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”

With light, and respect,
may you be BIG today,
Kamia
