Energy Whispers: What IS going on? (JULY 2012)

Oh my giddy aunt! What a month it has been and it hasn’t settled down yet? Have you felt it?

What with the Venus Transit, New Moon, Summer Solstice, today’s Full Moon and multiple blasts from the sun including another massive solar flare blasting earth right now, no WONDER we are all feeling it!

Of course there are some people who sail along totally unaffected wondering what on earth I’m going on about, but these messages aren’t for them. The Energy Whispers monthly energy report is for those of us who FEEL life pretty deeply and are looking for an understanding of and some steady ground to stand on through all these changes and shifts.

So how have you been this month?

I know I took more than a couple of days to hibernate under a blanket utterly wiped out with fatigue or fogginess. Many of you tell me your own energy levels have been so up and down you wondered if you were getting ill. Emotions burst out of nowhere, no amount of sleep seemed to be enough and yet at the same time you felt a clarity, inner peace or knowing that everything was OK.

More than ever before, you have told me that in the midst of the chaos you were able to access some kind of reassuring knowing and awareness that all would be well.

On a physical level many of us have been experiencing powerful Detox symptoms such as aches and pains as well as a cleansing of old emotions, some of which you thought you’d dealt with long ago.

Incredible blessings, opportunities and synchronicities have flowed into your lives at the same time as bad news about others. There has been such a contrast between our inner and outer experiences this past month.

My sense is that these extremes, these polarities are our realities stretching out to their furthest limits of contrast before the pendulum swings back to the centre where instead of great highs and lows we find a balanced middle point of flow. Many of you tell me you have felt almost depressed and then swing towards joy and bliss before settling back to centre.

Others have had intense dreams. I can relate to that in particular. It feels as if I am processing so deep, clearing out every dusty corner and working through any unresolved ‘stuff’ in my dream world once and for all.

I have had a lot of emails telling me that you had unusual meaningful encounters with birds and instant manifestation moments. I certainly relate. I had a little Robin hop at my feet and land on my window sill several times (they are my heart totem). Sometimes within moments of the thought you were seeing it manifest outwardly!

For example. I was sat writing my book ‘The Diary of an Awakening Woman’ and as I was writing I was aware that the wording and imagery I felt ‘guided’ to use was quite visual, almost filmic in nature. I had the thought “Oh wouldn’t it be fun to turn my book into a film that could help others”. I didn’t dismiss as I might have done a few years ago, as a flight of fancy. Instead I just let it be and kept writing.

Three hours later I had an email from a film producer asking me if I was interested in turning my book into a film! She happened to be on my mailing list and saw the first segment of my book I had shared exclusively with my mailing list just a short time earlier.

As all these extremes, clearings and feelings settle there is a new level of our being emerging. We have completed yet another turn of the spiral. The vast galactic alignment of this year will be calling us to clear out anything that holds us back from being all we came here to be. In fact it is happening now. Your Soul wisdom will adjust life inside and out until you are lined up with your authentic self.

I do not hold with the belief that if you are having any kind of problems then you aren’t ready for December 21st 2012. That in some way if you are feeling life and experiencing life then you are getting it ‘wrong’. That isn’t helpful and it just doesn’t feel true.

The chaos is part of the transformation. Change is part of being fully alive. There is no destination or end point where you can say you have passed the test and now you are fully enlightened and ready for the 2012 shift. The Shift is happening now and has been building up for hundreds of years and will continue for hundreds of years. We simply live at the apex moment of that shift, the tipping point.

How we respond to it and the state of our own consciousness through it IS something we can consciously affect. How we experience this age of chaos is up to us. This is our Choice Point.

Solar Flares may continue, there will be further moon cycles, world events, big changes, crises on the news……however, how we respond and how we feel and how we act is something we can positively and directly influence right now. And in doing so we set in motion new positive outer manifestations for all.

As within, so without.

So now is the time to ensure you are equipped to ride the waves well, to SHINE through The Shift and remember there is always a still point deep within you anchoring you to the present moment, no matter what is going on around you or within you physically or emotionally.

TIP: How to connect with your own ‘Still Point’.

Sit upright in a chair. One hand over your heart, the other over your lower belly.

Breathe deeply and gently. Allow your weight to sink downwards into your seat, more and more with each breath.

Feel the love in your own heart.

Stay centred right at the core of your heart energy in the centre of your chest.

Breathe in and out of that core and see it/feel it growing brighter and brighter like an eternal candle flame growing bigger and brighter with every breath until its light surrounds you.

Feel the intense peace there in your heart. Know this place holds immense and unchanging stillness no matter what is going on. This is your own place of infinite, unchanging peace and stillness.

Do this regularly to build your connection to your own inner ‘Still Point’.

Dates to watch for this month:

July 3rd Full Moon in Capricorn – A time of being aware of manifestations and outer experiences with others. This moon exaggerates some of the themes mentioned above in regard to how we balance our inner and outer life. This month is about how we use or step into our true power.

July 19th New Moon in Cancer – A time for planting new seeds of nurturing and deep inner growth. For a lovely list of suggested affirmations and wishes to plant around this New Moon see: http://www.annaagas.com/new-moon-wishes/new-moon-in-cancer-july-19-2012

AWAKENING TOOLS: “Are there different types of Grounding?”

Yes. There is Energetic Grounding, Physical Grounding, Spiritual Grounding, Emotional Grounding and Mental grounding. For information on Energetic Grounding see this post: ‘Grounding Your LIGHT: For a healthy awakening’


PHYSICAL GROUNDING

This is more specifically about earthing the bio-electrical current of your body to the surface of Mother Earth, engaging in a healthy energy exchange with bare grass, soil, sand or stone. This direct ‘skin to skin’ contact with the earth helps to discharge positive ions (the bad stuff) in exchange for an influx of negative ions (the good stuff). It’s all about an exchange of electrons (the earth’s subtle energy!). See The Earthing Institute  for more information. 

QUICK GROUNDING TIP: Walk barefoot on mud, sand, soil or concrete where possible.

 

EMOTIONAL GROUNDING

Grounding is about being present and connected, so emotional grounding is about being present and connected to your emotional self in each moment.

You can learn to feel your emotions and be with them in a way that will transform your life. Emotions are energy in motion (E-Motion!). Healthy energy is energy that is moving. So your emotions are there to keep you healthy. You can live in harmony with your emotions.

For example when an emotion comes up, it is usually old energy from your ‘pain body’ (collection of emotional memories and wounds) being triggered or activated in the present. You can either suppress that emotion, get sucked into its old mental story or you can use it as an opportunity to let go of/transform part of your pain body. This reveals more of your ‘light body’ or TRUESELF and you become present in the ‘now’.

QUICK GROUNDING TIP: When you feel an emotion, pause for a moment and find its accompanying energy sensation/feeling in your body. Breathe into it deeply until you feel clearer again. It is safe to feel your emotions. Breathe.

SPIRITUAL GROUNDING

This is where you consciously bring the light of your soul (your personal bit of Source) into your body and into your life, sharing it with the world via your joys and natural gifts. This is ‘Grounding Your Light’ and is how you bring your Soul Purpose down to earth as a lived reality in the world.

Some spiritual and healing practices can spin you out, raise your vibration and make you feel temporarily ‘spaced out’ until you integrate the shift and ground again. You can help the process with time in stillness, meditation, time in nature, sleep or by using a Guided Energy Meditation such as ‘Grounded and Calm’.

More on Spiritual Grounding can be found in The Grounding Guide.

QUICK GROUNDING TIP: Imagine the light of your Soul Purpose running down through you from Source like a waterfall running in via the top of your head through your body and out of your feet into the earth in a constant stream.

MENTAL GROUNDING

This is when you bring your conscious awareness and mental focus to the here and now. What are you thinking right now? What are you feeling right now? Mental grounding allows you to be fully present in this moment, observing your thoughts, being present in your surroundings experiencing them as they are right now rather than engaging with your day in an automated, unconscious fog, replaying the past or rehearsing the future.  Mental grounding allows you to be CONSCIOUS.

QUICK GROUNDING TIP: Set an alarm every hour and when it goes off stop and notice what you are thinking about right in that moment. Where was your head? This in itself brings you present instantly and helps develop your ‘inner observer’.

Grounding your LIGHT: For a Healthy Awakening

“What do you mean by ‘grounding’? What is it that I am grounding?”

You are made of energy.

Everything is made of energy or has a vibrational version that resembles the physical version.

Through you runs something similar to an electrical current running through a toaster or television, let’s call this your ‘bio-energy’.

The current running through your household devices comes from the mains supply or electrical ‘grid’ (unless you are off-grid!) streaming into your home. In subtle energy terms or spiritual terms this current also comes from a mains supply, one referred to as Source, The Great Central Sun, the Divine, God, The Creator or whatever name resonates with you.

In order for you (and your toaster) to maintain healthy flow of energy without circuits and fuses blowing, there must be an earthing agent, a grounding device or connection that allows the mains energy to flow through the conduit (you or the toaster!) and ground itself in the earth beneath you. Whether bio-energy or subtle energy, both need to be grounded.

For people experiencing ‘awakening’ or spontaneous evolution, the influx of this mains energy (often referred to as ‘Light’) increases dramatically.

The flow can also increase as a result of intentional spiritual or psychic practices.

When the inflow increases, active grounding becomes more necessary to avoid ‘burn out’, excess psychic activity, hyper-sensitivity, energy build-up or stagnation. More Light coming in means more of your ‘stuff’ comes up, your ‘baggage’ or ‘pain body’ gets stimulated ready for transformation. Without the other end of your system being grounded the clearing process is obstructed and any old unwanted energy cannot flow freely away.

Forgive the graphic analogy but if you don’t ground your energy it’s a bit like taking in more and more food or using a cleansing diet without ever going to the toilet! This becomes even more necessary if you are engaging in personal growth or spiritual practices or are experiencing spontaneous spiritual emergence because it stirs up your energy.

GROUNDING TIP: Go barefoot where possible on the naked earth (soil, sand, stone or grass). Just 15 minutes can totally reboot and refresh your system, reducing stress, inflammation, calming emotions, settling a busy mind, easing psychic sensitivity and helping you think clearly and manifest successfully.

The Way Back to LOVE: My healing journey continues…

Our relationships with others are often a reflection of aspects of our relationship with ourself and our life.

One of the most common issues clients and readers have asked me about over the years is their love life.
“How can I find my Soul Mate, my True Love?”
“Why do I keep ending up with the ‘wrong’ person?”

There are very effective Law of Attraction tools as well as the common guidance I have given to others myself many times and that is to love yourself first, wholly and completely, everything else flows on from there.

But what does this mean in real everyday life experience? How does our inner world and those parts of ourselves left unseen influence our ability to love ourselves fully or attract the kind of love and life we deserve?

As you may know from my previous post The Art of Falling Apart, I am having regular healing sessions with Master Energy Healer Stacy Vajta. I was recently diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal dysfunction and other things which all basically shout: “It’s transformation time again Kimberley. Time for a rest, time to go deeper and time for a growth spurt”.

My ‘homework’ for this week from Stacy has been to love my body more by welcoming my Body Deva or Body Consciousness into my full awareness. I am to love it and pamper it as I would a beloved guest of honour.

So I have been connecting with it as if it were a being in its own right, I have been imagining what my Body Consciousness ‘being’ might look like and what I might say to it.

What would YOU say to your Body Deva if it appeared before you as a wise and separate being?
What would yours need to hear?
What would it need to say to you?

Love your body more and you will get well. Right?

I read it all the time, in newsletters, Facebook posts, blogs, articles and books: “Love yourself and you will find optimum health, true love and life balance”.

What I am realising is that loving myself now doesn’t look quite how it did when I was consciously seeking to love myself several years ago. Back then it certainly worked for me in terms of getting well and then attracting my Love Mate. Excuse me as I digress for a moment and tell you more about that…..

9 years ago I would say I was at my best health-wise, everything was flowing, I felt balanced, I was fit, healthy, happy and grounded. This was after 2 years in semi-retreat where I focussed pretty much exclusively on spiritual contemplation, self-healing and self-care. I was surrounded by healers and teachers who helped me rebuild my strength day after day. After 27 years of stress and trauma I really needed it. I needed that time to heal and discover who I really am. During this period, one of the things I did was plant seeds of intention about my dream partner, my love match, my spiritual twin. I visualised him, dreamed about him and wrote about him in the back of my journal. Then I let go and got on with my life. I didn’t long for him or pine for him, I simply let go, trusted and got on with healing and learning to love myself.

Then one day I did something seemingly unrelated, I looked up old school friends on ‘Friends Reunited’ and sent some emails to see what everyone was up to. Back came an email from a guy I’d sat with in ‘A Level’ Art (age 17/18 yrs) some 10 years earlier. He was living near my home town, so the next time I was back visiting family in Devon we went to the pub for a drink. He met me from my Nan’s house where I was staying. I had an instant sense that I may have just met ‘the one’ I had been writing about, but I played it cool, not wanting to imprint my visions onto the wrong person or get ahead of myself.

It was clear from pretty early on that this tall, dark and handsome man (yes really) was the man I had written about in the back of my journal. He was even wearing the same clothes I had seen in my vision of him! Whether I created this or found it (or both), Neil is indeed my Love Mate, a soul mate who helps me grow through loving kindness and an unending gentle love and acceptance that has transformed how I see myself and the world. He has helped me begin to see the places where I do not love myself as much as he loves me.

So getting back to my earlier thread…recently this learning has come up again, with my homework from Stacy inviting me to love my Body Deva.

Like any slightly dysfunctional relationship, issues are rarely resolved simply by deciding to be nice to each other. The truth of the feelings that are really there bubbling under the surface need to be addressed, faced, felt and possibly expressed in order to return to truth and to make space for love to flow again.

So as I was inviting my Body Deva into my awareness as an honoured guest and imagining placing her at the head of a lovingly adorned dinner table, I became aware of the fact that it didn’t feel authentic. This exercise was helping to reveal my true feelings and they weren’t pretty.

I was angry. I didn’t actually want to give my Body Deva the time of day let alone an honoured place at my imaginary banquet. I was totally P.O’d and I didn’t know why. These feelings took me by surprise. But I tried to just allow them to be there and watched them with curiosity. This all happened last Sunday morning from under my duvet, the feelings surged forward as I was waking. As I had woken up, my homework had drifted into my consciousness and I imagined my Body Deva as my honoured guest at dinner. I was furious.

Instead of resisting the feelings and trying to stick to the plan of what I thought was loving my Body Deva, I allowed myself to breathe and feel all the anger as it surfaced (a different way of loving myself). I let myself just BE with what was happening in that moment. There was no judgement, clever analysis or spiritual platitudes, I just felt it. Having tried dozens of healing modalities, lifestyle changes and special super-nutrition eating plans, what it came down to was just feeling the energy that was there beneath the surface and had previously been buried too deep to access.

What I realised is that I was feeling old anger toward my body, anger that goes back 12 years to when I was seriosuly ill for the first time in my life. I was 27 years old and disabled by what stress and trauma had done to my body. I did a lot of self-healing back then as part of integrating my Spiritual Emergency of 1998 but I don’t think I had really connected with the anger, disappointment, helplessness and frustration I felt towards my body for what I saw as it letting me down.

At 27 years of age I had felt betrayed by my body. Here I am now with similar but much milder symptoms. They are showing me where these unresolved feelings have been sitting, waiting to be acknowledged and brought back into the field of loving acceptance.

If you feel hurt, betrayed or let down by a family member, you won’t heal it by papering over the cracks and trying to be nice to each other. The pain will be sitting beneath the surface influencing and colouring every interaction with that person and affecting your own well-being. Those true feelings, whatever they are need to be met if you are going to move on and if love is going to have a chance of flowing again.

If having tried everything there is simply no way to sort things with some people, we can let them go (in love) or at least take some serious time out. With our bodies obviously we cannot do that, we are committed!

This is what I felt bubbling up inside me last Sunday morning, the feeling of being trapped in a room with no doors or windows with someone who has betrayed me, hurt me and let me down. I felt like screaming. This is apparently a common feeling for those suffering chronic illness or disability but I had not connected with the intensity of these feelings 12 years ago so there they sat in my energy body creating unhealthy patterns. These patterns have at times caused me to push my body, disconnect from it, ignore it, over-give and work too hard. All the while in recent years my body has got bigger and bigger and the symptoms worse and worse as my body tried to get my attention.

So now I am listening, really listening thanks to Stacy. I am opening to an honest dialogue with my Body Deva, I am open to healing that relationship and am taking my time to do this authentically. It is an important step on my way back to love for my physical self and full health. The bigger picture is that this is ultimately part of my being able to ground more in my physical vessel and be a more effective conduit for Grounding the Light and being that interface of spirit and matter that defines the human/spiritual experience.

It really is just the beginning of a new healing cycle and I’ll keep you posted.

Solar Flares and Sensitive Souls

I want to respond to some of your questions and concerns about the recent solar flares. Many of you have emailed me quite worried about how you are feeling, which I can totally understand and so this is for you.

You have been asking me if I think the flares and solar storms may be responsible for some of the troubling physical and emotional symptoms you’ve been experiencing.

The quick answer is YES, I do.

You’ve heard me say “everything is energy”, this is true. However, to be even more specific it is in fact the case that every physical thing has an energy twin. There is a subtle energetic version of everything we can touch and see with our physical senses. There are actually many versions all existing at different levels or vibratory realities but let’s keep it simple and say one is made of matter and the other is made of energy.

So when you hear people talk about cosmic influxes of light from Source triggering awakening or ascension symptoms, the physical twin for that is our Sun. And then beyond that out into our galaxy there is a physical Great Central Sun.

For now it is the Sun at the centre of our solar system that is experiencing a little indigestion and belching out great plumes (coronal mass ejections) that are zapping into our atmosphere affecting how many of us feel. Eventually they can get strong enough to knock out satellites and global communication systems (predicted by NASA as a possibility in 2013) so they will most certainly affect our subtle energy systems!

What is the best way to protect your system from these flares and balance their effects?

Good old Grounding and Earthing!

The excess electrical energy that comes into your system during solar flares can make you feel really fried, tired, give you headaches, eye issues, palpitations, hormonal issues, aches and pains, emotional upsurges, insomnia, nightmares, unusual psychic activity, mental fogginess and much more.

The energy from the flares interacts with our personal energy system and is distributed through the body via the Chakras and Meridians (our internal road system circulating energy). Like any system when it gets overloaded with too much electricity without effective earthing the wires get fried and fuses blow. Our Chakras help to balance our hormones and link into our physical organs and health. That’s why the flares cause physical symptoms that we often assign to other causes. The Chakras and Meridians cannot process, store or circulate this much excess powerful energy, there needs to be a healthy discharge mechanism just like with your toaster or hairdryer!

Understanding 2012 – 8 of 8: What Can You Do Now? – A Call to Action

2012 has come to mean much more than a date on a calendar, or at the end of a calendar. It is symbolic of our moment of choice, our process of transformation amid the chaos of a rapidly changing world. It is a key choice point in the evolution of human consciousness.

It is also a symbol of hope, of a new beginning, a rebirth where we can each wake up to our creative power to shape our world inside and out. So what can we do?

BECOME AWARE OF THE BIGGER PROCESS

You are one cell in the evolving body of humanity. Whatever your own cells and body need to stay in balance is what your life, your community and your planet needs. This is the fractal nature of our universe. So be willing to see the bigger picture and your place within it. Everyone makes a difference. Even one clear, consistent intention for positive change will start a chain reaction of transformation. No effort is wasted.

 

MANAGE YOUR EMOTIONS

Breaking out of the unconscious cycle of drama, blaming and complaining and realising that you are not your thoughts or your feelings but the observer and experiencer of them is the key consciousness shift of our time. Emotions are simply energy in motion (e-motion) and when we can allow all feelings to be there, with non-judgemental acceptance and targeted breathing we can make space for that old energy of past story and programming to transform into power.

 

MANAGE YOUR ENERGY

Notice what brings you and others down. Notice what raises you and others up. Make sure you have a healthy vibrational diet. You are what you eat remember?! The same goes for what you surround yourself with, the information you allow into your consciousness and the people you choose to spend time with.

Everything affects your vibrational state. If you hang out with negative people don’t expect to be able to hold your positive vibration or consciousness. Your consciousness is the average of the people you have most contact with, so choose your company wisely. If you have low self-esteem you are more likely to unconsciously attract others with low self-esteem, but once you are conscious of this you can start to take small steps towards meeting new people with better self-esteem which will help you to shift.

Learn some basic energy skills such as ‘energy cleansing’. If you could see energy around you, people and in your own home you would be as vigilant about keeping that energy clean as you are about your own personal hygiene. So learn some skills that are the equivalent of an anti-bacterial spray or hand gel.

TIPS: Sea salt baths and swimming in the sea cleanse the aura. Candles, chimes, drums, smudgesticks, incense sticks all help to clear energy. Playing beautiful music with open windows as you clean your house is a good tip. Make sure you are in a good mood when you clean your home or you’ll simply infuse your furnishings with your bad mood which can affect interpersonal relations later on! Walks in nature, barefoot time on the grass will all help give your energy a quick clean.

Once we understand how the state of our energy affects everything (everything is energy) we will start to become more vigilant with our management of it in daily life.

 

GET GROUNDED AND CALM

Hopi prophecy depicts the modern path of the head versus the heart as a sure route to destruction of ourselves and our planet. They see the path of the heart and a connection to the Earth as our saving grace and portal to balance, harmony and sustainable happiness. One way to encourage your energy focus to shift downward into your body and down from your busy head is through grounding. Once you are in your body, grounded and down out of your head your heart starts to open.

Equally if you heal your heart and open to truly loving yourself and others it helps your energy shift downwards out of the head (which is often a place of refuge for a wounded heart) and into the body.

Energy flows where attention goes and so daily practice of grounding and heart focus is what it takes to bring your energy downwards into the body, connecting you to the Earth in a lasting way. Doing a course once or reading a book isn’t enough. Grounding your energy needs to be a daily habit just like getting and keeping fit and eating healthily. One healthy meal does not a healthy body make. It needs to be a daily routine.

TIP: Working with energy doesn’t have to be a big deal. It is easy. You can try breathing into your heart centre in the middle of your chest when speaking to people. If you do this it is common for the energy of the other person to shift too. So you may go from a superficial, defensive/protective conversation to something more open and warm and connected.

TIP: Walk barefoot on the grass rather than on the concrete pavement. Kick your shoes off at lunchtime and sit on the grass rather than on a bench. Just 15 minutes of barefoot contact with the soil, sand or grass will discharge stress, encourage your energy to ground downwards in your body and discharge any excess energy that is not yours. It also ionises your body. See The Earthing Institute for more info.

(For more info, tips and a grounding meditation see: Grounded and Calm)

TRUST THE PROCESS

Giving birth to a new humanity may not be easy. Remember to breathe. Know that the labour pains are worth it. Trust the process. There is something amazing at the end of it. As with all healing and transformation things often appear to be getting worse at the very point that beneath the surface things have already changed. Symptoms and remnants of the old can take a while to clear.

Do what you can to align yourself, your life, your relationships and your work with the evolutionary pull towards more honesty, kindness, collaboration, open-heartedness, self-care, integrity, joyful responsibility, environmental concerns, creativity, excellence and empathy.

REMEMBRANCE

Have at least 15 minutes of silence and stillness every day just to reconnect with yourself, your breath, your heart, your body. These few minutes are when you are plugging into the new frequency that will create our new world.

TIP:  Sit with eyes closed, plant your feet, relax your body and breathe into your heart with the intention of connecting to Source, God, The Universe, the Divine, peace, ‘home’ or whatever name conjures that inner feeling of expansion and connection to something greater. As you breathe into your heart quietly say or think the word or name that gives you that feeling. Repeat it over and over and feel it in your heart. The Sufis call this ‘Remembrance’, it is the act of allowing the remembering of who you really are. It is about connecting with the feeling and the frequency of remembering and opening to receive.

A daily habit like this can make your whole life flow more easily. It can be miraculous. Try it and see for yourself.

 

BE TRUE TO YOU

Follow your heart; it will lead you to where you need to be. There is a higher part of us all that represents the infinite love and intelligence of the ‘all that is’. When you follow your heart, listen to your inner nudges and intuition you will enter the flow of your life. When you follow your heart you enter a world where you feel the interconnectedness and magic of life, it feels like the universe is on your side, bringing you the opportunities and support you need. You cannot access this place via the head or ego. It requires you to drop into your heart, listen, trust and act. 2012 and the shift it represents is about helping all of humanity make that head-to-heart shift.

 

HONOUR YOUR GIFTS AND TALENTS

The most common question I am asked in readings is “Why am I here? What is my purpose? My work?” This is surely part of the ever-present existential angst, the human condition. This question is asked more often now as the world begins to awaken.

Equally common is the fact that those asking that question left their innate, childhood passions and gifts behind many years ago, often squeezed out of them by family conditioning or ‘school damage’.

Our purpose is to love and be loved, to remember we are all connected co-creators shaping our world in every moment. Our path is whatever presents itself when we follow our hearts and bravely face ourselves and our truths, committed to growth.

How you share that love and where it leads you when you follow your heart is unique to you. In terms of expressing your love as work it starts with your own innate talents and gifts. You may undermine them, not value them, have low self-confidence or have forgotten what they are. Yet they are the key to the what of this question. Whatever comes naturally that you absolutely love to do is the heart of your joyful ‘work’.

For example, for me personally my purpose and my work shows up as opening to Source, sharing love and calling people to greatness through my writing and painting. The first time I earned money from painting was 2 years into my conscious journey. It has taken 13 years of gradual steps to shape my entire work life around those innate gifts.

So start by remembering what you loved as a child, what were your natural gifts and aptitudes. Those gifts are how Source equipped you for happiness in this world. Embrace them, use them, enjoy them and share them in whatever way is the most fun for you.

SUBTLE ACTIVISM

Taking action is the movement of a grounded soul in the physical world. However it is the spirit in which you do something that is the true creative force.

For example in energy terms, campaigning for a noble cause while you are filled and seething with anger and frustration is only spreading more anger and frustration in the world, even if what is behind it is passion. Subtle Activism would see you work on your inner feelings about that cause and owning your own ‘stuff’ about it before campaigning or taking external action.

The next level of Subtle Activism might see you considering how the issue you wish to help resolve in the world is represented in your own life. As within, so without. Often that which we seek to change in others or in the world is an unresolved issue we have ourselves. Start with you and the outer shifts will happen far more easily, sometimes spontaneously.

Equally you might sit quietly in a space of stillness, breathe into your heart and feel love towards those people or situations you seek to improve. Rather than ‘send’ healing to a person or place simply hold the image, knowing and certainty of them as already whole and healed. See all concerned remembering who they really are, opening their hearts and finding balance.

AND FINALLY….

2012 is a symbol of transformation and invites us to become fully effective, super-charged ‘grounders of the light’, lightning rods for Source energy. By taking small steps every day to consciously shift our vibration upward whilst shifting downwards more into our bodies and connecting with earth we will meet our potential!

We live in a time where our collective pain bodies are purging old information, patterns and programming. Our world is shifting, we are currently seeing the destructive phase of creation and the healing crisis is underway.

I cannot tell you that everything in the garden will be rosy, but it will be exciting, creative, challenging, inspiring and collaborative. Initially out of necessity we will see organisations, business and countries working together in ways not seen before. Our current opportunity is to choose to change how we think, act, live and love way before we are forced to through increased difficulty.

What will the world become? That is largely up to us. Nothing is set. Nothing is certain. Whatever you tolerate now, perpetuate now, think and do now is what you will get more of, that is the world you are creating. You choose by changing, not the other way around. We can have the life and the world that we want or we can have our reasons and excuses for not having it. We cannot have both.

What world do you choose?

With love and blessings,

Kimberley ♥

Sensitives and the City

“What’s wrong with me?”

“Am I the only one feeling like this?”

“Why is it everyone else seems to be able to cope but not me?”

“Why do I find it so hard to keep up?”

“Why does this hurt so much?”

 

Sound familiar?

  

 

For Sensitives, Lightworkers or awakening souls living in a busy town or city it can often feel like you are walking around naked like a peeled grape raw and vulnerable. Like one giant exposed nerve the hurry, worry and flurry of the city sends endless tiny earthquakes through your body and energy fields. Even a brief visit to a city can be cause for a mini meltdown for those who feel EVERYTHING so deeply and acutely.

Sensitives can feel the feelings of other people, animals, and plants. They pick up on the ‘vibes’ or atmosphere in any environment. For a sensitive soul loud noises, flashing lights, crowds, deadlines, time pressures, aggression and busy traffic can cut through the skin ravaging any precious space of peace that may have existed deep inside.

What results is overstimulation and overwhelm, sensory overload, emotional imbalance, anxiety attacks and unshakeable fatigue due to adrenal ‘burn out’. Some Sensitives manage to live in the city by throwing up defensive or protective mechanisms or by closing their hearts. This can lead to other imbalances in health and relationships and a disconnection from self.

Sensitivity can be the result of trauma; it can be your soul path, a symptom of awakening or simply a return to the natural state of interconnected awareness and experience of all life.

We are not designed for the modern, busy world we have created. We have not created a modern world that honours and nourishes the balance of inner and outer nature; it did not spring from a conscious honouring of the interrelatedness of all life. This separation, abuse and total disconnection from nature and our natural state is why we are facing environmental disaster and is what causes so much pain to sensitives on a daily basis.

 

Whatever the reason for the sensitivity the fact remains that it isn’t easy living in today’s busy, overcrowded world and it is even harder if you haven’t yet discovered the following:

–          You are a highly sensitive soul. It is a recognised psychological category/constitution

–          Your sensitivity is your strength

–          There isn’t anything wrong with you

–          There are things you can do to support yourself

  

 

Knowing these things can help you find a steady centre to explore the gifts of sensitivity and the many blessings it can bring you and the world.

If you are a sensitive soul it is time to embrace the fact that you are not the same as everyone else and that this is a POSITIVE thing. If you choose to live or work in a city then there are certain skills that will make it easier for you (some of them are shared below). It is also OK to give yourself permission to do what feels right for you and if that means moving out of the city, changing your lifestyle or changing jobs then allow yourself to do that knowing it is an act of courage and self-care.

City living for a Sensitive is hugely ungrounding. Overstimulation, excessive sensory input, empathic overload, competitive culture, hurry and worry are all hugely ungrounding taking people out of their bodies and hearts and up into their heads.

Being grounded, calm and centred in your body is also the missing key to manifestation, enlightenment, living your soul purpose, managing stress, good relationships, better health and most of all it is the secret to staying steady and stable through the many changes and challenges of this time on earth as we move through the shift of ages (2012 and beyond). I have created something that will help you…

CLICK to listen to an audio clip of the ‘Grounded & Calm’  guided energy meditation (GEM) I created to help Lightworkers, Sensitives and awakening souls get and stay grounded in their bodies. Grounding is key when managing sensitivity.
 
 

 

 
   

Sensitives who have listened to the ‘Grounded & Calm’  guided energy meditation (GEM) just before and during a visit to a big city have had amazing results! They found it hugely helpful in coping with the city environment.

Here is what they said: 

“The impact of the Grounded &Calm meditation is so far reaching. For example, after my last trip to London (to visit my step grandbaby) I told my husband I was sorry, but I was not going back again. The experience of the energy of London was traumatic for me. But yesterday I told him we can go back now because I can take Kimberley (the Grounded & Calm meditation) with me to keep me calm” – GCS (USA)

 “Kimberley I cannot thank you enough for the difference that the G&C GEM and your other hints have tips have made to my trip into the City yesterday and today! I listened to the GEM just before bed last night and got the best night’s sleep in a hotel in London in YEARS! I’m still feeling all the excess energy and getting the weird physical vibrations, but so much less than before. And because I am so much more grounded I am not getting scared of it, so I’m not adding to it! I feel so much better this morning than I have done on waking in London in such a long time. I will keep using the hints all day and hopefully will have a very different kind of day, and by 8pm when I get home I will be a lot less exhausted than usual! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!”  – NB (UK)

 

 

♥ Other Tips for Sensitives in the City ♥

– Eat a hearty grounding diet and make sure you snack regularly. Once your blood sugar drops you get ungrounded and more vulnerable to the energies around you.

– Breathe deeply into your lower belly, especially when in a crowd. Once you hold your breath you become a vacuum cleaner for other people’s transmitted energies, you become ‘spongey’.

– Focus on your feet, feel them against the material of your shoes, plant them firmly to the ground as you sit, walk or stand.

– Take regular ‘recharge breaks’. Even in a busy office or city there is one place you can go to get a private physical bubble of space to yourself and that is the loo! Go regularly (even if you don’t need to ‘go’), lock the door, put the seat down, sit and plant your feet firmly to the floor, breathe down into your lower belly and relax your shoulders, abdomen, buttocks and any other tension. 10 good deep breaths should do it.

– Rinse your hands and wrists under running water often. It helps discharge excess electromagnetic static and energies that are not yours.
