Greetings and Salutations! It’s been a busy week here for me, Michael Jaco was a fantastic guest! Thanks so much Michael for sharing your stories with the world! Everyone, pick up a copy of ” The Intuitive Warrior”.

Today I want to talk about something that as we awaken we all go through in life. It is part one of a series I will write in the future.

One of the most difficult things that I have found as an empathic person who is wired for healing is this. It’s hard to watch another human being in pain. To not take that on as your own and to allow them to endure it because you know that it is for their highest good.

This is true of family and friends who have addictions to things like drugs, or it can be addictions to toxic relationships, or addictions to misery and that type of thing.

People who thrive on the drama of it all, the story. There are some epic stories out there right now, my own included.

Sometimes I sit with myself and wonder, how is it that we manage to keep doing this to ourselves, allowing the pain to continue even though we know in our intellectual minds how to stop that, yet we still sit in it like a dark murky fog.

We are paralyzed by it and cannot see that we can move. Why do we allow ourselves to stay there and suffer so much??

I think, well perhaps I do this because as low as we go in duality is as high as we go the other extreme. Then I think, well, perhaps it’s so we can know that feeling of despair and understand it better. Truth is it could be both those things and many more. We have all been there, wanting to just die, to not exist, to want to escape the pain so badly wondering if it would ever end. Thinking of all the ways that you could do yourself off with the least amount of damage to those around you.

How does the human being turn that around?? What is that spark?? I believe love is a great conductor in that, but is it survival?? is love a primal?? like food, sex, survival?

What is it that makes some give up and others get tough. What is that strength stuff made of??

For myself, there seems to be a well that never dries out. Many times have I been on that edge, many times it was not my own stuff causing that feeling either.

They say that God never gives us more then we can handle, and that in that breaking point of ourselves, that slow death of our egos, we find our true character. Our grit if you will.

People have often asked me, “How do you stay so positive with all the stuff going on in your life?”

For one, faith. I have a great deal of it. Faith that all things will work out as they are supposed to. Faith that if my choice is not a good one the universe will let me know in many ways. Faith that this too shall pass.

In the darkest moments of the soul, it is when we connect with Mother/Father and our higher self to find those answers that no one else seems to have not even yourself.

Now is the only time we can create, in this moment. We can choose to be defeated, or we can choose to feel the pain but move onward to a place that is. If we do not like a circumstance, or it feels empty or painful, change it. You can do it. You just have to choose it and mean it.

Looking at ourselves, at our lives objectively is not always easy, our automatic responses want to point fingers and say things like “I wouldn’t act this way if >>>>>>fill in the blank.” “Things would be better if>>>>>fill in the blank” “I feel like there is no solution that will work!”

We are all guilty of these statements within our own minds. These statements which are self sabotaging to our ultimate goals.

It is in the moments of those dark hours and thoughts that we finally surrender! We finally give up fighting it, the change within us. The innocence is gone, the dream became some other reality, there is no turning back when your perceptions are changed whatever the subject matter.

The inner death of the old you and the phoenix that rises from the ashes and it has to be the creator within your being because it is like a life renewed a new birth within our spirit. A new hope. Often a new gift or level of insight to life and the bigger picture and how we fit into it.

If we can stop being in the emotional place and come to that place of a higher awareness, then we can begin to heal. Release. Forgive. Accept what is as it is now, in this moment. Put action to change things within our control. How we see things, how we respond to ideas, people, places, situations, can we change our situation by making a move?? Ultimately you cannot run from the problems they will follow you wherever you go until you face them, so better to walk through it and seek the messages,gifts, lessons as quickly as possible. In doing so you begin to shift the focus to the solution. Writing it out can help, talking it out even with yourself can help as well. Working things out through exercise, housecleaning, singing, dancing, reading, meditating, music, painting, woodworking, tinkering on things around the house. Changing your bedspread and curtains or moving furniture around. These are all things which can help in that wave of need for change. Natural evolution of life and person, we are always about the change. The more we focus on surrendering and allowing things to take their course, to allowing others to be who they are and make their choices for themselves, focusing on the solution being brought to us, the lessons and the bigger pictures of our life and the people involved lives, the quicker we move through the dark periods.

Then you have Stan, his friend asks, “Where did I come from?” Stan says to him, “The last place you left.” His friend says, “Where am I going?”, Stan answers, “The next place you’ll be.”

Sometimes messages come to us in the most interesting ways. Always our angels and spirit guides nudging us to clarity in the messages we receive all over the place.

The trick is to stop and listen. To stop and give thanks in the midst of it all for the things we have instead of the things we do not. To see things gained and not lost. To know that the cycles of life have beginnings and endings. Sometimes those endings are difficult and sometimes they flow like the river. To remember that life is full of ebbs and flows. To use our tools to center in the midst of the storms around us, to remember to be still when things are not clear or chaotic around us, and if a choice is still wavering within our beings that it is best to be silent and watch and wait until the way is made clear.

The issue sometimes is our own impatience with things. Our time is rarely divine time. Other times it is our own resistence to change or to acceptance of whatever may be the issues at hand.

I release the need to resist change. I release the need for struggle. Change flows through me with ease and grace, I am flexible like the gentle breezes, laughter dancing upon the streams of life. Love and I are in harmony with the divine plan and the divine flow. I am perfect as I am now. I love myself as I am now. I accept myself as I am now. I forgive myself as I am now. I am a divine being. I love my life and life supports me in all ways in perfect timing and harmony. These are some of the positive affirmations that I have used during these moments.

This concludes today’s post….love and light, xox Kimberly

Devotion

Can you imagine a country where citizens don’t own any guns.
For self protection,or sport or for fun.
Can you imagine a country where voters were not.
Can you imagine country where the citizens rights were  forgot.
Can you imagine a country where we no longer feel free
and the only hands having guns are the criminals we see.
Law breakers will be around forever,
so make sure your there to pull that lever.

From The Soul of an American

Every year they put it to the test,
but, the Second Amendment stands the best.
The right to own arms in a country that’s free,
is a loyal display of our integrity.
For hunting or self protection guns can be great,
and in a last chance Militia they can help with our fate.
I’ve carried a weapon when I served my country,
and swore with an oath to keep America free.
But, freedoms and liberties are getting thinner each day,
as the Constitution’s words are slowly melting away.
This country was protected with powder and shot,
and the hearts of the Militia who won’t be forgot.
Not only did their squirrel guns put food on their plate,
they gave us this NATION WE ALL SEE AS GREAT!

******************************************************************************************

The choice not made

There’s a noise at my door who could it be?
Could it be a criminal looking for me?
Does he have intentions of giving me harm?
What will I do they’ve taken away my arms?
Should I grab a knife or a ball bat will that protect me?
What if the criminal has a gun that’s coming for me?
When I had the chance to vote and show my conviction,
Not going my has left  me in this prediction.
I thought there would be enough voters to protect my rights,
now the safety of my life has fell clean out of my sight.

**************************************************************************************

Diligence

A grandfather was talking with his grandson one day,
about the things he’s done in a land far away.
He said “Tommy I’ve done many things I didn’t like to do,
but it insured our children could live freely like you”.
Before I went to war all I had killed was that twelve point Buck.
and I tell you it was nothing but luck.
I had an old Iver Johnson twelve Gage loaded with double ought.
I don’t really know the last time it had been shot.
But that Buck showed his head out from behind some tree’s
My mind thought wow and I let out a sneeze.
Just as the buck turned and started to run,
I pulled back on the trigger and down he come.
That Buck was so big he fed our family for half of the year,
and back in my day food was something that people held dear.
Then he walked over to his bed and the night stand,
and came back holding a medal in his hand.
He said “this is my award for the sacrifices in combat I had to give”.
To insure that Americans had a free country in which to live,
but Tommy each day their trying to take our freedoms away.
I’ve been a hunter and a soldier and guns aren’t for play.
Weapons should always be in responsible hands,
whether for sport or hunting or protecting this land.

*****************************************************************************************

The Crack Shot

Load ready, aim, fire!
I gotcha!
Load ready, aim, fire!
I got another one!
Victorious and glorious the little boy yelled out
as he was shooting flies on a wall with his rubber band gun.
Even with it he was still responsible enough not to shoot out an eye.

Audio Blog is recommended for this entry ….

Greetings and salutations One and All. Today, I want to continue with a topic we started awhile back on Sopheggios which is an auditory form of meditation training. Today though, I want to take you through a guided meditation which i have taught for years. This is a chakra clearing meditation which I use with beginners in my classes.

As with all meditations, how you get there is entirely up to you, these tools I share may not work for everyone, however, as with trying all tools, use them repeatedly for a period of time, say a month to see if it makes a difference. Old habits take 21 days to break they say, another week for good luck and sureness I say. It takes the brain this long to form a new habit, so allow it time to work properly, most people feel instant relief from this particular one I am sharing today. My student Chrissy, has asked for years that I put this one in audio form so she could use it at home not just in class. So it is for her that I am sharing this particular meditation. I love ya sister!

When listening to this meditation, please sit up in a chair or couch, and get comfortable. Place both feet flat on the floor. Sit up straight but with relaxed shoulders and back.

Your breathing technique, is to breath in through the nostrils and envision the crystalline light particles filling your lungs, spreading throughout the bloodstream and to all parts of your body on a cellular and then molecular level. Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth while you are slowly inhaling and holding, then in a slow controlled count of three open your mouth totally and envision all of the negative stuff leaving your body through your breath and natural elimination systems of the body. Repeat this a minimum of five times. With each exhale, allow the body to completely relax and listen to your breath.

Once you have completed these initial cleansing breaths, continue to breath in this manner and see within your minds eye, a tube of light running from the heavens, as you want to ground to the universe as well as the Earth for this exercise, all the way to the core of the planet. Running the light tube through your body. From the earth begin in your mind to pull the purified energies through the tube of light, through your feet, ankles, calf, knee, thigh, and lower back area. At this point envision your base chakra, it should be red. If it is a dark red then it needs to be cleared and filled with light, so use the energy being pulled from your feet to fill this with light and watch it change colors and possibly flow direction. Once this is the color of a bright red then like a thermometor see the energy moving up to the sacral chakra which is the color of orange. This should be a bright orange like a pumpkin, if it is darker (often it is with this chakra) then repeat what we did with the base chakra until the energy is flowing clockwise and spinning in a way and the color is a bright orange. As before, move this energy upward to the solar plexus, the belly button to diaphram area is about the location of this and it is seen as the color gold. Again, fill this with light and as you do see it change into a pyramid around you, feel your connection to all things, for this is where the strand of life is connected. Bask in the light of your own being, heaven’s light surrounding you and running throughout your entire body. Be still in this for a moment as you continue to breath deeply. As you are ready pull that energy back into yourself and allow it to move into the heart chakra. See the balloon of light as green with bursts of pink in it. See the bubble getting bigger so that you are now in a bubble of love all around you and that bubble grows bigger to fill the whole room you are in , then the entire house, the entire block, see it moving through all beings on the planet and the planet herself, send out all that love in your heart and see the bubble getting even bigger expanding out to the universes and finally to the original divine creative source, and then when you have reached that point feel all the love all the beings you sent love to sending it back to your heart as you pull that bubble back to your heart, you feel the love of all things of the one filling your being, and once it is back to your heart then push that energy upward to the throat chakra. The throat chakra is dipicted as blue. See a crystal blue ocean like carrabean blue and imagine yourself swimming in it as you swim out further come back to the balloon and see the balloon filling with indigo blue, a deep blue with purplish hughes running through it see this blue light running throughout your body and all cells, dna and atoms and drawing out all the sickness and dis-ease within the body all of the trauma and negative thoughts and see it taking it out through your extremities, hands and feet and sweat glands and excretion systems, the blood being cleansed and white blood cells and red blood cells being produced in the bone marrow and all blockages of cholesterol being removed, lungs are filled with healing and all bronchi are renewed see the body and think to yourself, i am healthy and whole and all parts are back to their original form on my physical blueprint, and remember to continue to breath, see the stuff shaking loose, vibrating off and being released and expelled from your entire being and auric field. Running the blue light throughout all things within and outward of your field, healing to all things. Then pull this back and see a triangle with you inside of it, as you move the energy now upward over your face to the third eye, located between the eyes on the forehead. Envision the color purple here and the purple flame, see a curtain being pulled aside and the purple flame transmuting negative thinking and feelings transmuting you from being asleep to awake, opening up your minds eye and see all that can be seen in truth and clarity, see the veil being pulled back so you can see the truth of things. Sit and be with your highself while in the safety of this triangle, allow your mind to bring you what it might have to share with you now, and continue to breath. Deeply and slowly, relaxing your body, filling it with light, releasing all negative feelings and thoughts and transmuting them with the purple flame is there any points within your body you can still feel stress or tension, send light to it and release it through transmutation to a neutral energy or golden sparkles of light being taken to heaven for transmutation if you prefer. allow the third eye to bathe in this light and let your mind go where it will, let the spirit soar, now come back to you and move the energy up to the crown of your head. This is where the plates of the skull come together, or where a yamaka would be worn on the head. Envision the color white, see your skull open up like a lotus flower and light pouring out and up to the heavens, open wide and light being poured back into you, see all the colors of the rainbows as a waterfall of light washes over your entire being. Call all the parts of your energy that may have been taken or left behind to return back to you from all time lines and see that being added into the river and poured back into your being, running that light all through the chakras and body and down through your feet to the core of the planet for cleansing. Continue to breath deeply, now see that purified energy return up through your entire body back up to the heavens, like a circular flow through out your aura and body and spirit let that light flow like the river filling your being and cleansing you, continue to breath, listen to the breath, and the feelings you are currently experiencing, what messages you might be hearing in your thoughts, what pictures are coming to your mind, what emotions are being stirred and where are you feeling them in your physical body. Just relax, and breath, in through the nose , tongue on the roof of the mouth and hold and slowly exhale…. when you are ready, i want you to start coming back into your body, and feeling your senses physically, when i count to three you will be wide awake and refreshed and re vitalized and clear thinking…continue to breath….you are coming back now….. slowly waking up ……. one you are more clear in your thinking…..two…..your body is full of energy and spunk……three….you are now fully awake and aware and happy and at peace. Please now shake all of your hands and clap and shake your feet and legs, get the blood moving, rotate your neck and shake your shoulders and stretch your back…..please be sure to drink at least three glasses of water in the next hour to help the body remove the toxins which were released during this cleansing meditation and thank you so much for allowing me to share with you this wonderful tool which Spirit shared with me years ago. I hope that you find this helpful in the future. This is one of the meditations I will be including in my book, ” The Lightworkers Handbook, 101″ Due to be released later this year.

Remember practice makes perfect, most people do not feel much when this is first being practiced this thing called meditation, some have trouble with mind chatter, and others feel that they cannot breath right, but in time I promise you this tool becomes like air to you, and you need it and it feels wonderful. Eventually you master it and only need take breaths a few and you achieve the same feeling. Taking time for you even if for five or ten minutes a day, is absolutely necessary to feeding yourself. To being a good parent to yourself, to being a good friend to yourself. To loving yourself. This is critical to “get” for your survival in the future as the frequencies begin to do their thing. Some of you may have your own chakra clearing meditation you do, but however you do it, what ever works for you, just remember this is one of those basics that needs to be done daily and sometimes several times a day if you are dealing with people a lot. I will get into other ways of helping to clear your energy fields and chakras as we get into spiritual baths and water. But for now, this concludes our blog entry for today on meditation. Blessings to each and everyone of you! Please be sure to tune into Illuminations of Light LIVE! with Joshua James, founder of Sedona Lights Radio Network, this Tuesday Night 9pm MST on blogtalkradio.com/illuminationsoflight! Don’t miss out on this interview as we discuss many things, including Joshua’s time in Brazil at the Casa with John of God. It should be a great show! Love, and light, peace and blessings I bid you a good day!
