My session with Kassia was profound. Let me start by saying that Kassia and I are friends, and she has known me and been aware of the nuances of my journey for quite a while. Even armed with all of that knowledge and information, the guidance that came through her was so far beyond... well, just... so far beyond. I knew, when I sat down with her, that she would offer only authentic guidance, but I could feel the clean, clear energy of the messages streaming from her lips as she spoke. There was no taint, no influence, of her knowing of me in the words. I've ever only experienced that once before, with a medium who detected the child who was to be my daughter, long before she was even actually conceived. So, believe me when I tell you, Kassia is the purest sort of messenger.
I am transgender, and have struggled at times with being a gay trans man and not being "seen". I did not think that I would ever reconcile my being a yin man, who values nurturing others and who strives to live a gently devotional life, with the concept that I had to "pass" successfully in the world as a conventionally recognizable masculine presence in order to live a safe, fulfilling life. The tendency might have been to overcompensate with a hyper-masculinity. I was moving in that direction, and yet, at the same time, felt the pain and dissonance of not being true to myself. Prior to really arriving at a willingness to allow myself to accept that I needed to express my own truth and reality, regardless of how others would interpret me or think of me or feel about me, Kassia and I had our session.
There were powerful images that came through Kassia: she saw a figure in a kind of harem costume, a man dressed as a woman and treated by others as a woman in some kind of ceremony. There were claws, belonging to a jaguar, slicing through this scene, and drums and then two male figures embracing, the scene shifting into a modern cityscape. As I took in these messages, *I* began to receive images and guidance, as well. Both of us began to work in tandem, it seemed, the fragments of our guidance fitting together like puzzle pieces. At the very end of that part of the session, she offered to me: "There is a room. You are giving a speech or presentation. i am hearing your words and seeing you standing at a podium, but what I am really focused on are the inside voices of people in the audience and what they are feeling, as they watch you, listen to you. They feel at home, more at Home, with a captial 'H', because of you. Not because of what you are *saying*, but because of YOU."
That shifted everything for me.
I saw then, that the most powerful thing I could offer to others, to society, would be my most authentic self. My skills, talents, intelligence, resourcefulness? They would not mean a thing if I did not *show up*. To offer others a way to relate to themselves in their greatest authenticity by virtue of embracing my own? Yes. That. When I got it... really got it, my body felt electric with the affirmation.
In that same session, my creativity was addressed, and my sense of purpose. I knew what I came here to help teach and facilitate, in a very broad sense, but I could not see how my gifts nor my knowing was going to translate into my life's "work" or how it would become a "career" or how it would support me. Again, Kassia delivered, purely, what was needed most. The problem became clear, as I heard the guidance that was offered: I was focused on the wrong thing. I was thinking about "doing". Kassia provided the following guidance: "Your work is not to DO anything. Your job, your fill-time job, is to BE. The Universe will support your BEing. Don't worry about how. Don't make business plans. Don't follow any advice about how to be a successful this or that. Just work at being you, and refining you, and putting you out there." I heard, through my own channels of guidance: "Your livingness IS the Message", and I understood that, as crazy as it seemed, I could trust that I would be taken care of ~ exquisitely taken care of ~ for pursuing my own evolution and growth and creative expression and sharing that livingness with others.
This IS how my life is now. There is nothing I want for, and there is no fear in facing the day to day human passage. A very particular kind of abundance ~ an abundance of responsiveness, on the part of the Universe ~ is given freely, always flowing. I am immensely grateful to Kassia for helping me see that I had the choice to say "yes" to it!
I feel blessed to have my own intutive channel open. It is something that benefits me as much as it benefits others. Kassia is, as an oracle and conduite, akin to the "healer's healer" or the "teacher's teacher'. The vision that is afforded her, due to her clarity and humility and depth of devotion, far surpasses that of many an esteemed spiritual guide or Seer. Please do seek her out. The gifts you will receive are invaluable.
