Simple Pleasures, Celebrating this Life

Life is such a gift. A balanced spiritually devout being is not asked by the Divine to reject the physical world or the body that houses us. To fully bring forth the gifts we are each carrying, we are asked to make peace and practice love within the body we inhabit. We each carry intuitive knowledge of what the ‘wild self,’ the essence that is our purest form, is craving for celebratory Joy. Our energy bodies, vast, expansive and carrying the wisdom from thousands of reincarnated lives, are offered Balance through this cycle of life, with both the deep sorrows and grief we can survive, counterposed by the absolute delight in being alive these bodies and incarnated selves are capable of experiencing. Our wild selves may need serious unleashing, yelling in the forest, or pounding at top speed up a mountain, But sometimes that intuitive voice, that yearning to let go, and unfold the wings we are each carrying, can be as sweet and simple as sunlight on our upturned faces or feeling the soft petals of a flower as our fingers trail through a garden; our Souls way of physically, mentally and emotionally honouring a longing, an impetus for change, for radiance and colour and a saturation of the precious nectar of life. We can feel equal delight from a meditation in which we are connected with our soul groups on the spiritual plane, to the delight that is possible when our toes curl in grass, or sand, or mud. Feeling the power in our arms when we hold someone close, sharing the rhythm of one another’s heart beats connects many levels of being with the beauty and joy of this life.

When was the last time we each gave ourselves permission to experience a moment with joy and total abandon? The restraints of social normalcy, ego based ‘should’s’ and repression of our personal passion, thrown out the window, while we spun in reckless self expression? There is such joy in ‘feeling’. I feel with my senses in so many ways and carry deep gratitude for those who request assistance on the etheric level, through Certified Angel Card Readings ™. Yet, if I am not ‘present’ within my body and self, I have less connection to etheric power to bring forward into facilitating healing, or to any area of my life.

When I seek to find a way to be more ‘connected ‘ to the essence of both spiritual light, and incarnated abundance, I retreat into a silent manner of being, whether outside or in a pool of sunlight within doors. Sitting, I lengthen my spine and take eight deep breathes. Placing hands over top of my navel, plans facing up for reception, or downwards for grounding.  A prayer/affirmation that I have found useful is:

“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help me to clearly identify the ways in which my purest essence of self is asking to be expressed, acknowledged and celebrated at this time. Please send my the assistance of Archangel Micheal to cut through any chords of fear that are blocking my receptivity to clearly perceiving the messages my Higher Self and intuitive wisdom wish to share at this time. Thank you, Amen, Aho, and OM.”

The essence of self may ask to shed layers of energy, it may wish to shout into the woods, or into a pillow. It may need to cheer enthusiastically or sing at top volume in outrageous, colourful delight. Or, it may need to place the emotional burdens of carrying those that one loves, down onto the earth and to again trust that the Divine Source is capable of cradling us all while we are learning to navigate letting go, moving forward and rediscovering our individual passions for this life. Sometimes it takes a devotion of time and energy, a promise we choose to make to ourselves, after or before all of the household, professional and family responsibilities have been managed for the day, and we escape for solitary and balancing time, a simple practice such as letting our hair flow in the wind beneath a passionate apricot and nectarine toned sunset. Somedays being connected can manifest in the gentle inspiration for changing the colours that we habitually wear. For the highly sensitive, colour and texture effect our levels of receptivity and sense of ‘belonging’ with the divine. Other days the messages may be more intense, asking for difficult conversations to occur between ourselves and our inner union of Divine Masculine and Feminine qualities, or with another person who has an impact on our well being. During those times, we each have the capacity to identify that change, growth, transformation and intuitive wisdom can release a myriad array of emotions. Yet, when we give ourselves and others permission to express emotion, we honour that we each deserve emotional health.

In what ever capacity, we are each drawn to connecting, celebration and honouring the different levels of ‘self’ we each have, may we do so with boldness, colour and delight. For truly, this life, for all that it brings during times of despair, offerings us equal measure to choose to be present with Joy, with delight and with the simple pleasures of being incarnated and alive during this time of momentous potential for change and higher consciousness.

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.

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

Celebrating Highly Sensitive Children

As a child I often struggled to reconcile the world around me that was ‘socially acceptable’ with the vibrant, diverse, far more interesting spiritual and emotional climate I was able to ‘read’.  Most of the time, it was very confusing.  What people said with their words in comparison with what their spirits or emotional resonance said, did not often align. It took several years to effectively construct energetic shields to stop being overwhelmed by the opposing messages.

Many children who are being born at this time are extremely ‘awake’.  You can tell as they look at you from their large luminous eyes, that not only are they seeing the body and face you are wearing, but also the emotional, spiritual and mental climate you are carrying.

Each person has an aura that extends several meters beyond their bodies.  People are conditioned to curl their energetic bodies more closely around their physical bodies as a coping mechanism early on in life.  It makes interactions with others emotions and spirits less overwhelming.  Ideally, through fostering meditation, yoga or reverence for the divine in another way such as communion with nature, people are given an opportunity to spread their wings of light, so to speak, to expand and trust their inner knowing and clear their energy fields so that interacting with others becomes a celebration of mirrored resonance and a joyful experience of others gifts.

One of the ways to respect and foster a child’s ‘sixth sense‘ is to be honest with them.  All of the time.  If you as a parent have words that are resonating in the same way as your emotional and spiritual body, then the child knows that they can trust you.  This certainly can lead to uncomfortable conversations, because there are days in which being honest with oneself also requires time for grief, healing, releasing and transforming anger, and the days can seem packed with other tasks and responsibilities.  Yet processing and acknowledging emotions is one of the most valuable gifts of mentorship you can offer a highly sensitive child.  Their emotions are like tidal waves.  You will see them rush through and seem to consume them.

Attempting to remain calm, to visualize surrounding them with white light and praying that their guardian angels help them to release and transform the emotion is all valuable.  Teaching them to breath through the emotion, to hold them against you if they wish to be held and taking deep, belly filling breaths also enables their rhythms to return to a  calmer place.

Sensitive and ‘awake’ children feel very deeply, not only their own emotions, but also the emotional climate of those they have interacted with though out the day.   A large crowded room, or an upset person they walked past can all flood them with emotions and energy they want to process. If your highly sensitive child prefers alone time, do not fear that they will be antisocial.  Consider that as they develop healthy boundaries and shielding techniques, they will attract other peoples energies that do not overwhelm them. I was far more comfortable alone, and sometimes still am, until I became more grounded in developing healthy boundaries and shielding techniques.  To share a simple few, consider the space that you child sleeps in.  Flood it with sunlight, encourage them to find rocks, outside that they are drawn to and bring them inside.  Many children will respond to the grounding energy of stones, and naturally want to collect them.  I am grateful still to my father for carrying backpacks of rocks home for me to array in my room.

Listen to the cultures or countries they are most fascinated by, and consider an image or piece of clothing from that country, as some of their past lives share gifts they wish to communicate in this present one. Perhaps they have recently had a lifetime in Tibet and are drawn to singing bowls.  This is a valuable energy clearing tool for them, in a similar way that sweet grass or sage for smudging can be used for clearing.

Allow them to dictate the colors they wear each day.  They will often adorn themselves like a rainbow and have very distinct ideas about what they want to wear.  Color has resonance, it mirrors and supports healthy chakras as well as matching their auras.  They will use these colors in healthy ways for creating balanced boundaries. Notice their response to drinking pure water.  Many will be highly sensitive chlorine and need filtered water, or when having a bath, a handful of sea salt to clear their energy.

Above all, listen to what they say, and what they ask you.  If they are curious about angels, or talk to them all the time, encourage their sharing of their inner knowing.  They may interact with a world that does not as easily accept this form of dialogue when they are outside the house, but if they feel safe expressing their gifts with you, they will be encouraged to hold onto them instead of trying to block them and ‘fit in’.

Trust their instincts about people they do not trust, and instead of talking them out of their thoughts, explore and communicate ways in which they can navigate uncomfortable situations with peers. This is challenging, but vital.  As you develop their tools, you will clarify and strengthen your own.  Highly sensitive children often pick highly sensitive parents.  They inspire growth, healing, divine love and colorful existence. They bring joy, when they are not struggling to ‘fit in’.

These children ‘know’ there is a God, angels,  fairies and plant devas, and that the earth and environment are precious.  They are teachers of us all, and if we remind them daily, that they are loved, and trusted, they will flourish and change the world as we know it in incredible ways.

As a child I to talked to angels and fairies and the earth.  I had a few years during which I attempted not to, to feel as if I ‘belonged’. Those were sad years.  I converse with the angels, fairies, and the earth daily once more.  Their messages are uplifting, energizing and filled with love. When I interact with people I want to tell them they are beautiful, bright, and worthy of love, because most of the time, their angels are all shouting it, and I am encouraged to join the chorus. I am grateful now for my heightened sensitivities and hope to mentor my own child to trust her inner knowing and gifts.

Many highly sensitive people learn to block out their spiritual awareness at a young age as a coping and survival skill.  The inner knowing however, is their greatest tool and ultimate survival and coping mechanism, and it is important to encourage a connection, foster self awareness and trust and endeavor to support these gifts, as ultimately they are Soul gifts that the person has brought to the planet.

The following is a prayer with the assistance of Archangels Michael the angel of protection, Raphael the angel of healing, and Ariel who is the ‘lioness of god’ or the brilliant gold light that infuses and balances the third chakra and our personal place of power and assertiveness:

Dear God/dess, and higher self, please help me to align my being with its unique and brilliant gifts.  Please help me to trust my inner knowing, to set and maintain healthy boundaries that enable me to celebrate my gifts, and interact with others in a manner that encourages their own healthily boundaries and inner truth. Please send Archangel Micheal with his sword to cut any chords of fear or negative energy from my personal space and being (and from around my child).  Please send Archangel Raphael to bring healing to any areas in my life, past and present that taught me to ignore my inner knowing. Please help me to have faith in my ability to perceive divine love on all levels, both within myself and within those that I interact with, and send Archangel Ariel to help me to have the courage to speak my truth from a place of love and assertiveness. Thank you , amen, and Om”.

To all of the parents of such children, and the adults that were once these children themselves, the light within me, recognizes, honors and celebrates the light within all of you, Namaste.

with light
