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.  

With patience for ourselves and one another,

With light,

Clairvoyance and the Astral Body

Many earnest individuals through history have sought to pass along their particular experiences of the Divine. Religions explore different words and concepts for navigating the levels of spiritual being that can be experienced, or perceived. Some faiths speak of the wheel of time, of multiple reincarnations, of Brahman, Buddha, Creator, Great Spirit, God/dess, Heaven, Hell or purgatory, some speak of spirals, timelessness, the beginning and the end.  We are each, at this time of existence, able to choose a spiritual pathway that feels the most loving, heart based, secure or safe for us as individuals.   Please note, that we are all unique in our perceptions, and  act as filters of mass consciousness wisdom.  Each of our individual perceptions will register unique experiences when tuning in.  What I ‘see’ is a gift for my present life, and it is my sincere wish, that my experience is helpful in empowering others in trusting their own unique guidance, similar, different and unique as we all continue to be. 

When we speak of the ‘astral body’ it is most often in an attempt to reference the spiritual light and consciousness tied to our current (and previous) incarnations, that is capable of travelling, or moving through different levels of reality without the body in the physical location visited.  When a person is alive and healthy, their astral body, depending on the vibration they choose when entering their current lifespan, may explore different levels of reality without their conscious mind retaining the travels.  For those who have devoted time and energy to a heightened awareness, or for those whom were simply born with there receptive qualities heightened, their can be a conscious awareness of where the astral self has visited, learned through, or travelled between.  

When a person begins to transition, guides begin to become ‘brighter’ or ‘louder’ alongside them.  Guides can be in the form of angelic resonance, branches of the Divine Source, ascended masters with an affinity for the life walk a person has dedicated themselves to, spirit animals whom carry gifts similar to the growth or lessons the person recently completed or soon will be approaching, ancestors, the fairy kingdom, and other beloved Loved ones whom act as guides to friends, family, and the earth at large. The gifts a person has sought to bring forward, can become more vivid.  The challenges they have ignored or choose to compete before passages will manifest in larger ways. The light clusters around the individual whom is passing.  Offering strength and support for the navigation of sorting through the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual challenges, or shedding of karmic debris that is occurring.  This does not mean the person whom is in the process of passing feels no pain on any of the levels. Rather for a clairvoyant or highly sensitive individuals, being near the physical or spiritual body of an individual as they near death, is similar to entering or bearing witness to a crowded room.  During the course of the past year, I bore witness to the ending of a loved one’s incarnation.  During the illness that systematically shut down the physical self, the spiritual and astral self of the person began to beam at an elevated rate.  Conversations, energy exchange and wisdom all began to heighten on the spiritual/etheric plane of existence with the individual, and I was given the incredible gift of witnessing the energy transference of spirit into greater-Soul.When this loved one ‘visited’ in energy body, they were accompanied often, by a host of guides, by a stream of light showing past incarnations, and by the radiant glow of their Soul group.  I have rarely witnessed such incredible beauty alongside such deep suffering.  Yet we are all, encouraged in our life walk, to accept that this life has duality of being, on each level.

When this person was nearing their ‘spiritual doorway’, different levels of the etheric reality and manifest universe began to unfold in my perception.  There was the level of physical being, with another layer, strand of the web of light connected to the choice some spirits make to remain close to the earth plane. There were layers, upon layers of energy like a cocoon that holds the earth softly, some with those whom continued to work through karmic debris and help people struggling on the planet, some whom moved into their soul group on another plane of existence, some whom chose reincarnation.  Like  layers of a rainbow, the multiple levels of spiritual existence began to expand in my perception, and I ‘saw’ as the loved ones spirit chose to move through or pause at each of the levels. 

We can each strengthen the connection of our waking consciousness with the awareness of our astral selves in a manner that resonates as ‘true’ for us as individuals.  A person whom is devoted to a traditional religion or specific name for Divine Source, may have success in their spiritual practice for feeling connected and aware with the Divine, from a variety of cultural backgrounds.  For those whom are seekers of levels of consciousness, whether through new or traditional spiritual pathways, we are each made Stronger by a healthy connection to grounding and to boundaries and shielding.

For those whom are approaching a passage into energy from the physical, or for those whom are bearing witness at this time, I offer this simple prayer that was a balm to my spirit through Love, grief, longing and joy:

“Dear Divine Source, please help me to feel safe, as I experience the gift of so many emotions.  Please send the angelic resonance that is working alongside me for the highest good of my Soul Path and the world at large, to bolster my courage, and deepen my compassion through this processes.  

Please empower the one whom is transitioning to move beyond any energy blocks or karmic debris, that can be released with the most healing and Love.  Please send clear messages before, during and after the passage of this individual life, to guide the Soul to the Light that was their original power source.  I ask that the soul be protected and shielded by the power of Archangel Micheal and Kali Ma. 

Thank you for these gifts, I open my heart to Divine Love and the support of the Earth at this time, and I give myself permission to take the time and sacred space needed for this transformation, and expansion of consciousness  Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

I am so grateful for the gifts of clairvoyance that continue to reveal to the manifest and multiple realities carrying so much light. We each live and die, and rebirth our consciousness, our hearts and our physical bodies through time.  May we remember that the light between incarnations,the Divine Source, welcomes us all home, and offers us this beautiful Earth to experience, Love, grow, grieve and connect upon.

I wish all people the opportunity during a reincarnation, to feel as connected and filled with Peace as bearing witness to the passing of a deeply radiant Soul afforded me in this life.

With light and compassion,

Kamia

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?

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
