Everyone wants to feel their best - calm, contented and fulfilled.
But that can be very hard when people and situations in life seem to be disallowing that. Or if you have a mental health issue that causes you anxiety.
So, according to my perspective as a Healer and Empath, the reasons for experiencing a lack of serenity are mainly:
• Karma - life lessons that need to be faced.
• Uncontrolled gifts - such as clairvoyance, seeing and sensing energy that interferes with your calm.
• The need to set better boundaries.
Karma and life lessons can be faced by looking squarely and honestly at your life and your beliefs and evaluating what needs change. Another way to address life lessons is by investigating past lives. Sometimes, the root of the issue was buried 5 lifetimes ago.
As for uncontrolled psychic gifts, in truth, all psychics have experienced uncontrolled elements of their gifts at some point. This is because most of us grew up repressing our gifts. Also - there is a collective consciousness around the planet that is troubled, and if we tune to the psychic realm unprepared, we can encounter these painful things - such as entities, negative thought forms, or the negative feelings of others. It's important to take time to meditate and learn what helps you to stay in control.
Sensitives are very compassionate. Therefore it's very important to set good boundaries. Investigate your life, find out where your energy is being depleted, and do your best to change things - even if it's not easy at first. Do what you can to take care of yourself - even if it's a simple as buying yourself some flowers, getting a cup of tea, organizing your closet, or calling a friend. We all deserve some me-time, especially when we are always in tune with the energies around us.
We really can't change the fact that we are sensitive. But, we can change the type of energy that we choose to absorb. We do this through habits of thought and action, and being conscious of who we connect with.
Don't forget to prioritize yourself. This is what the Angels are constantly encouraging me. In fact, when I do things to take good care of me, the Angels reward me with additional positive energy. Your Guides will do the same. Beings in Spirit will always support and encourage you to love yourself and take care of yourself, all the time.
It's time for Lightworkers to show themselves some love :-)
I like the picture above this post, because it illustrates the pattern or "grid-like" nature of consciousness. We decide, by where we choose to focus, how we want the mosaic of our consciousness to be. We master certain elements of being a human being on this earth.
Often when I do energy healing or readings, I will immediately connect with Spirit Guides and Angels. They let me know what the person needs the most. I have a list of things I do: Ancestral Healing, Past Life Healing, Aura Healing, and Entity Removal. And maybe, sometimes channeling deceased loved ones.
There's another thing I'm not sure what to call, but it happens when someone is ready to "upgrade." And this has to do with the grids. The Angels will appear and present the image of a stairway going up. This usually means that your soul is finished with your current set of life lessons and is ready to move up, meaning the intensity of a lot of the old problems will fall away.
Our stories that make up our life are held together by this energy matrix. Everything that manifests is connected to certain types of consciousness. Some people call these levels of consciousness a grid, some call them a matrix, some call them octaves. Essentially they are an energy web by which we give and receive information, they are like the internet of our consciousness.
As soon as you learn what you wanted to on your lower set-point, if you choose a soul-centered path, your Higher Self will start guiding you up the stairs of and walk you into a higher set-point, a higher grid.
You could call this an upgrade, or a graduation...but it's a real thing.
As an example, one of my biggest struggles metaphysically used to be entity attachments. My lessons were around strengthening my will, and my healthy ego, embracing qualities of leadership and command in the metaphysical, and switching from "warrior" to compassionate and disciplined teacher. I now feel confident that I can handle entities. I now consistently hold a vibration that elevates me out of the one in which I was vulnerable. I just don't have a problem with it anymore.
We can do this for most subjects in our lives. But it's not something that can be forced - we really do have to learn what we wanted to initially, before we can "move on." But it is good to know that as we are determined to raise our vibration and learn, we will evolve, and things that we struggle with will get better.
You have certain spiritual gifts - and know you’d like to use them more - but have no idea where to begin. Maybe you’re dealing with the heaviness of being an empath, perhaps knowing how other people are feeling and wishing you could help them... feeling deep down you know could…. But you don’t know how, or get drained. You might feel that you have a unique purpose, but aren’t sure how to figure it out. Well - guess what? You’re right - you do have a purpose - it is to help people to heal. And it is appropriate to listen to that desire and to discover more.
It’s very likely that you are sensitive, emotionally, spiritually, and psychically. Being sensitive just means you can feel and sense very acutely, and you’re aware of subtleties. That's really what psychic ability is - being able to sense very subtle forms of information. You can see more deeply into matters. You have a great deal of empathy and a desire to be of service. You are a healer and a Lightworker. For healers, helping the world to heal and to be well is an impulse in our Soul DNA. We know that we are all connected, and we know that being of service to one is being of service to everyone. We want to help build a better world.
For most people, the key to living your purpose is to start taking action. If you’re stuck and don’t know what to do - start exploring the topics that interest you, listening to all of the resources that you have at your disposal. This is work, this is action - and Spirit responds to that.
Spirit knows where we put our priorities. And Spirit honors this. And yet, despite our circumstances…If we still feel a strong pull to be of service - it’s time to show ourselves, and the world - that we are ready to do this.
Ultimately, as Lightworkers, we yearn to facilitate change in this world from the inside. We know that’s where change starts. We want to start with emotions, the heart, the soul. We’re passionate about inner work. The only way this healing will happen on a mass level, though, is if we embody that which we are idealizing ourselves. Spirit asks us to “be the change,” in order to accomplish that which we yearn to accomplish. We have to prove ourselves.
It’s not necessarily an “easy” path, it’s one that takes courage and passionate commitment. Lightworkers didn't come to take the easy path - not at first. It does get easier as you go along. But it's the breaking free from the "system" part of it that trips people up. It’s not easy to go against the norm, especially when our friends, family or colleagues are not thinking about these things. We may fear their response to us, fear being judged or ostracized.
And it's not that we are really that different. It's only that we want to go deeper and that requires a little digging.
And so even if we feel like we're talking a tight rope... that’s where we move forward anyway. Only have 15 minutes to meditate? Take that 15 minutes. Show your Higher Self - the more conscious You - that you are willing and ready to do whatever you are capable of doing now. The more effort that you put into making your wishes and dreams real, the more the world around you will take steps toward you - and the way forward will open.
The "openings" happen after we've worked the edge of our comfort zone for long enough. Sometimes, you will meet someone you never thought you would meet, and opportunities open up that may have been hidden only hours earlier. We just don’t know what, when or how Spirit’s messengers will arrive to give us what we need. Sometimes, synchronicities let us know we’re on track. Sometimes, it’s unexpected offers, illuminating conversations, and chance encounters. But the opportunities and support do come.
Wherever you’re at - keep going. Keep asking questions, doing research, taking time to meditate, learn, grow, expand, and offer your insights to others. Spirit will continue to support your expansion and growth. And over time, your mission and purpose for being here will become more and more clear. But it takes time. For some people, perhaps they know immediately, but for most, it is a learning process, to find out what it is that you excel at and most want to share - and this will be your purpose.
The Lion's Gate Portal is so powerful.
I've found a good way to respond to fluctuations in consciousness, if you are a sensitive person, and this period is stressful - is to treat your mind and emotions like a ride. (Keep in mind the eclipses can cause energy fluctuations too). These are times where we get to look at our inner challenges, and flex our strength. But it's not about "winning" some test or proving yourself. It's about flowing, listening, observing. Observe but don't worry about believing it.
In other words...it's about a process...what you experience is real, but it is not the real you. I think we get caught up in thinking, when we are feeling low, or challenged, that the feeling is a reflection of our true self. We start saying "I'm so this, I'm so that, I'm just this way." No, YOU are not that way. Your consciousness is giving you valuable information, and it's only needed to observe yourself with kindness and gentleness. And flow, meaning, do what is necessary. Rest. Move. Call someone. Take a walk. Fast. Eat cake. Whatever you truly need to take care of yourself as best you can. Don't worry about long term goals during big energy fluctuations - it's time to listen to yourself. You might be looking at your shadow, but if you are, it's so that you can embrace it. Because the Universe, your Higher Self, knows well that when we stretch to encompass these hidden sides of our psyche, we are prepared to become who we've been claiming we want to be - and sometimes, who the Universe knows us to be - but we don't yet know it. :-)
So take a deep breath into that edge where there is space for expansion - and claim it. The lion is a fierce teacher, because it's about having the courage to expand into the unseen spaces in your consciousness and to know that there is light there, it is worthwhile, it's a part of who you are!
A 4 minute vlog on Spiritual Love - what does it really mean?
Forgive my fatigue in this vid, it was late at night!
But I was also really feeling the topic.
This is really common, especially among people who incarnated from lives off-planet, or are used to a way of living that is less polarized. You know deep down there is a "better" way.
(NOTE: I'm not necessarily talking about people diagnosed with depression - just people who do experience it, and this may be an influence and possibility as to why. It's a metaphysical influence to explore.)
I think what happens is that we kind of "vibrate out" of our present-moment experience seeking for what we've known before. You will find it for short periods and feel elated. But since you're here in this body and this life, you'll inevitably be drawn back through the magnetic pull to your body. When you descend through consciousness back into your physical body, your brain will tell you "this is a place of stress" and you will feel forced to release the heart-centered, high vibe you were just enjoying.
There's a sensation of going from "there" to "here."
It's very abrupt.
It's influenced by the immense strain on your system from leaving and going "up there" to the vibrations your soul once found familiar and pleasant. This tells your brain that you don't want to tolerate being "here," that you reject elements of it. And your brain, just like it needs oxygen, needs your presence in your body. If you deprive your body of your own presence for long periods, it will suffer.
Naturally, your body and mind filter this action of "leaving" as a threat to your thriving. You could interpret that depression as influenced by stress from "going away" from your body. Then there's the contrast of "there" vs. the perceived reality of "here."
The challenge for lightworkers, I believe is to transmute the tuning of your personal energy from one influenced by the collective-consciousness you're used to and trying to escape, into a new energy based on the vibrations you're instinctually seeking by going away.
So the challenge is to recognize that your instinct for "something higher" is correct, but you're going about it in a self-damaging way. Instead of leaving, bring those feelings down into your body and felt experience now.
Sometimes that hurts. But it's better once you get through it.
You can avoid the push and pull and the feeling of not belonging. Instead you become a pillar. It's how you're creating the new reality. The key is compassion and determination to live your truth.
I can teach you some helpful ways of doing this. There are ways of moving beyond the collective consciousness. I teach this to clients and students and call it "Comprehensive Grounding." It's an active form of grounding and detachment from collective consciousness influences that affect the subconscious. The Problem - and Solution - is that we are so powerful.
