Daily Angel Oracle Card: Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, Card Meaning: “This card is a call for you to meditate regularly. Your path, body and soul are asking for quiet time to reflect, think and receive insights. Even a small amount of time devoted to daily meditation will bring you great gifts. You do not necessarily need any formal training in meditation. It is simply a matter of sitting quietly, closing your eyes, breathing, and listening.

Additional Meanings For This Card: Be still and listen. You need some alone time. Be honest with yourself. Join a meditation group or take a meditation class. Listen to a meditation CD.

Siddharta Guatama devoted his life to finding an end to suffering. He renounced his family’s wealth and tried several spiritual paths, including asceticism, in his quest for spiritual growth. He finally had insight that moderation (or the “middle way”) was the path to enlightenment. He also demonstrated the benefits and importance of meditation, and many of his insights occurred as he meditated beneath the Bodhi tree. Call upon Siddhartha Guatama for help in developing your meditation practice, to practice moderation, and to overcome any form of suffering.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

┬áIf we are to reach a higher level of consciousness, particularly in our technology ridden world, we must make time and space in our lives for a regular meditation practice. Meditation is a scary word for many people, as they picture hours of uncomfortable sitting in lotus pose, quieting their busy “monkey minds” and listening to the Universe. Many people say that they don’t have time, energy, or the concentration required for meditation. Yet, it is absolutely vital to our continued spiritual growth.

So what is meditation really? It is making time, even 5 minutes every day, to allow your mind to be quiet and still. It is concentrating on your breath. It is listening without expectation. It is allowing yourself to receive. But it can start in baby steps. It can start with a guided meditation on CD or downloaded from the internet or youtube. It can be a walking meditation out in nature, undisturbed. It can be sitting in your garden breathing deeply. Or, it can be a scheduled time in your designated sacred space. Whatever resonates with you is the perfect way to start, as you get more comfortable and see the benefits, you can add more time or change your routine. The most important part is starting.

If you do decide to set up a sacred space, pick somewhere that you can be alone and feel safe and secure. You can create an alter, with some favorite crystals, a photo or statue of your deity, a candle, maybe some incense, and a few chosen treasures. You could find a beautiful yoga mat or pillow to sit on. Have fun creating your space. This should be a place that is all yours to enjoy, private and secure and personal and beautiful. It should welcome you and help you feel excited that you are taking consistent action steps towards raising your awareness, and strengthening your connection to the Divine.

Namaste

Guardian Angel ~ Learning Experience

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Guardian Angel ~ Learning Experience, from the Saints and Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Guardian Angel ~ Learning Experience: This situation is an opportunity for you to learn some important life lessons. Instead of looking at this experience as a problem, see it as something that will help you to learn and grow. Some of the valuable qualities that you are acquiring include strength, patience, forgiveness, and perseverance. Similar to the angel in the painting, who is holding a glowing white dove, this is an opportunity to shine even more brightly.

Notice any familiar aspects of this situation: Are there things that you are tired of and are ready to let go of? Once you extract the blessing within the pattern, it will not need to repeat itself anymore. You will have learned the necessary lesson, and you can be free from it for good.

Your guardian angel will help you see the current situation in a more positive light, as well as identify the lessons involved and heal away unwanted patterns. Simply ask your angel for help with these issues, and then pay close attention to any loving thoughts or feelings that guide you to take action.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

We all have patterns in our lives. We may go around and around, trying out various solutions only to find yourself in the very same predicament. When this happens we have two choices: See ourselves as hapless victims and feel powerless in the face of this adversity; or acknowledge the lesson, no matter how hard and release the pattern. Often, if this pattern involves other people, or your livelihood, it may be that you have the perception that it is harder to release. What if you have to hurt someone in order to free yourself from the pattern? What if that meant that other people may judge you harshly; consider you selfish? What if you had to quit a job that provides you with enough money to support you, but you hate it? How do you decide when to throw in the towel and trade safety, security, mediocrity and compromise… for the leap of faith that may just lead to joy, fulfillment and limitless opportunity?

Your team of guides, your guardians, are gently urging you to look closely at the patterns in your life right now. What is the theme in your relationships? Where are you headed with your career? How is your family dynamic? How is the balance of support in your friendships? Where is the pattern that may be holding you back? And how can it be rectified? Look with loving eyes, for all those who are in your life are there on a Soul level to teach you what you need to learn in this lifetime. They may seem far from their own Soul paths; they may not be treating you well, but they are here for a reason, and eventually it will all lead back to love.

Acknowledge the lesson and then give yourself permission to start looking for a new way to live without this lesson. Invite your Guardian Angel to send you the people and opportunities you need in order to progress past this and into a more loving and peaceful space. Know that no matter what, you are worthy to shed this pattern and move on to something brighter and happier.

For the highest good of all involved, by the Grace of the Universe.

And so it is.

Namaste

Astral Travel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Astral Travel, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Astral Travel: “Vital Force ~ Information ~ Dream Time Soul Travel.”

“This card is telling you that it is time to expand your horizons. Perhaps you need to travel to experience a foreign culture or learn a new subject. Possibly you need to widen your circle of friends.

This card also lets you know that you are receiving vital information for your well-being. Astral or soul traveling – an out of body experience in which your astral body travels to another place or dimension – occurs when you are between the “asleep” and “awake” states of being. Your astral body, or dream body, is filled with sparkles, like a thousand tiny stars and universes.

Additional Meanings For This Card:

It is time to feel your greater sense of purpose and focus on the bigger picture. Your astral body needs a charge. Go outside to stand beneath the stars and the beautiful moon, allowing yourself to absorb this cosmic energy. You need a break or vacation. If you cannot travel right now, choose a place you would like to visit and pick up some books to study that location and culture. You have been gaining knowledge through out of body experiences. Call in protection and release your fears about astral traveling. A positive change is coming. Use your dream time to accomplish a specific goal.”*

– Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

The reason our dreams feel so real to us is because they are. We are literally entering another dimension of reality with our astral bodies. When we are in this dimension, we are able to assimilate new information from our higher consciousness directly from the Universe without our ego’s getting in the way. We do not have to deal with that little voice in our heads telling us that the information, signs or symbols are “not real” or are confusing.

The best way to bypass this upon waking is to keep a dream journal. Write down any animals, symbols, colours, people or places which you remember from your dreams as soon as you wake. Try not to analyze the information until after you have written it all down, just allow the information to flow about what you saw, who you were with, and where you were. Later on, you can go back over this information and take note of any patterns, synchronicities or answers that may have come. This is also a great time to look up the animal spirit medicine of any animals which came to you… they are definitely part of your team of guides and may appear regularly, signifying a totem animal, or simply to pass on their message. Ancestors may also come in your dream time to offer ancient wisdom, support and love from across the Universe.

If we can learn to control our lucid dreaming, we can harness this ability as a powerful tool to control our dreams and get answers faster. This takes concentration and practice, and it is always a good idea to protect yourself with a black tourmaline, amethyst or black obsidian crystal while purposefully using your astral body to travel across the cosmos. Hone this ability and everywhere in time or space will be yours to explore.

Namaste

Kuan Yin ~ Compassion

Published May 26, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Kuan Yin ~ Compassion, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Kuan Yin ~ Compassion, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Kuan Yin ~ Compassion: “Release judgments about yourself and others, and focus on the love and light that is within everyone.”

Message From Kuan Yin: “Gentleness is the strength behind true power, and it comes from feeding yourself with nourishing words, thoughts, deeds, intentions, and all forms of food. Shield yourself from harshness by placing an intention to attract only kind and gentle life lessons and relationships. Transform harshness into gentleness by refusing to see anything but the shining light that is within each person and situation. This intention begins with your relationship with yourself. Be very gentle with yourself in all ways. Be happy, be kind, be sweet, but most of all, be true to who you are.”
Various Additional Meanings Of This Card: Release guilt and shame to Heaven for healing and transmutation. Keep your thoughts about yourself and others positive. Avoid gossip or bad-mouthing of yourself or others. Forgive yourself or another. Do not be so hard on yourself or others. Release perfectionistic tendencies.

About Kuan Yin (pronounced Qwan Yin): The Eastern goddess Kuan Yin hears all prayers and is the essence of purity, nurturing love, and gentle power. Kuan Yin is a Bodhisattva, meaning that she is eligible for Buddhahood. Yet, she has vowed to stay near Earth until all beings are enlightened. This youthful and beautiful goddess helps us feel compassion and mercy toward ourselves and others. She is also a protectress of women and children, and she awakens musical interests and abilities as well as psychic clairvoyance.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Kuan Yin is blessing us with her Divine compassion and understanding of the human condition. She is gently reminding us to detach from the drama of the physical plane and embrace the beauty and abundance all around us. She is a powerful, nurturing and supportive Goddess, who will assist us when we need her guidance and direction. All we need to do in order to connect to her is spend some time in quiet contemplation, requesting her presence and drawing her energy to us. Breathing in her soft, higher heart pink, Divine gold, pure healing green essences mingled with the power of the violet ray. Her energies will heal, calm and soothe you to your very Soul.

When you connect to Kuan Yin, she will share her Divine Feminine wisdom with you; heightening your awareness of the beauty and light within all beings, including yourself. She will lighten your heart and remove burdens of the past which have held you hostage over many lifetimes; if you are ready to let them go. She will heal your vision of your future and what is possible; as an individual and as an integral part of the human race.

Kuan Yin is calling, can you hear her whisper coming across the Universe. Close your eyes and invite her in.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Yvonne, from the Messages From Your Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Yvonne: “You have a special bond with animals. Your pets on Earth and in Heaven are watched over by angels.”

Additional Message From Yvonne: “Animals respond to your kind and gentle ways. You have a special understanding of them. You can relate to the innocence and trusting nature of animals, and you feel a call to help them. I am one of your guardian angels, and I am here to tell you on the beautiful ripple effect that your relationship with animals has created. You love for animals has also forged a deep bond and appreciation with you and the nature angels.

All of the animals whom you have ever loved continue to be with you like guardian angels. Your love for them keeps these animals at your side forever. Your pets in Heaven are happy, spiritually healthy, playful and affectionate. Your pets on Earth are surrounded by angels who bestow miracles upon you and them. In many ways, the animals act as angels for you and your loved ones. You are someone who truly appreciate the angelic qualities of animals. You are able to communicate wordlessly with these wondrous creatures, and your special bond with the animal kingdom is opening new doors for you right now.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

In our higher awareness and raised consciousness we are finally realizing that we are all a part of something bigger. We are all connected, people, animals, birds and creatures, trees, flowers, plants, the stars, the moon and the cosmos. We are all one. We are also finally coming to the realization that all creatures have a consciousness. They feel, physically and mentally; just like we do. They process loss, they feel pain. They are not connected to ego, which means that they are detached from the drama and actually have a stronger connection to the Divine for this reason.

Your pets are with you for a reason. They are part of your team of guides; chosen on a Soul level to come to work closely with you in this lifetime. Their lessons are simple, yet profound. Unconditional love. An unbiased, non-judgemental ear to your woes. A snuggle just as you need one. Pets will even go as far as to help you heal on a physical level, taking on some of your dis-ease in order to save you pain and discomfort. They are aware of your feelings, and lend their support when you are upset or unwell. They are in your life to show you the value of Unconditional love and Christ consciousness; giving without expectation… well, except for the odd treat I suppose!

The bond between human and animal is strengthening as we move into our fifth dimensional consciousness. As we see the world as one, we feel a much deeper bond and appreciation for all other life on this planet, including Mother Gaia herself. Animals will come to work with us more and more; as messengers for the Universe. As you learn what to look for, and the synchronicity of seeing certain animal guides at particular times in your life, your bond with the elemental kingdom; the faeries and nature spirits will strengthen also.

There is a whole other world out there that has been waiting patiently for us to wake up. They now need our help just as much as we need theirs. Open your hearts and minds to the animal kingdom and witness the amazing energy they will bring into your life.

Namaste

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus, from the Flower Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Robert Reeves

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eucalyptus, from the Flower Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Robert Reeves

Eucalyptus: “You have prayed for help, now be open to accepting it.”

“Praying for guided assistance is only one part of manifesting a miracle. The second involves your being able to accept the blessings that the angels bring. Drawing this card means you may have a resistance to receiving help from others, including God. Please understand that there are no special rewards for completing a task on your own; you receive just as much experience when you accept help. Therefore, it only make sense to call on all the assistance you can muster. Consider how wonderful it feels when you give to others. Now allow others to experience that joy for themselves.

Make it well known that you are open to receiving all the blessings the angels have for you.

You can say a prayer such as:

“Dearest Angels, I thank you for your constant and unconditional support.

I am willing to receive all of the love, guidance, and healing that you have for me.

Please shower me with your gifts and blessings, as I am now ready to receive my miracles.”

Additional Meaning For This Card: Remember to ask for what you want; you are in the process of attracting amazing opportunities.”*

– Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Robert Reeves

Receptivity is key in all forms of manifestation. Even in the early stages of inspiration and creation, we must be receptive to the guidance from our Soul; the nudges from our Higher Selves. Each phase of creation is a thus, a form of receptivity. Imagine how hard it is to help someone who doesn’t want to be helped, or doesn’t realize that they need the help. Think toddler or elderly person… they often think that they know what is best for them, and refuse help. If they understood how much the help would facilitate the process of procuring whatever it is they want… they might just be more receptive to the help!

As adults, we often feel we must take it all on ourselves. Either we don’t want to inconvenience anyone else, or we feel that if we want something done properly, we must do it ourselves. In this circumstance, neither of these ideals are true. We have asked and asked for help in the form of prayer and now the help is here, we must surrender to it. If this means allowing even a complete stranger to help you out, so be it. You are allowing them to pay it forward, which is a gift in itself. By receiving the help offered, you are raising both your own vibration through the relief of having the assistance, and the helpers vibration by allowing them to feel of service; needed or wanted. It’s the perfect “win-win” give and take.

The best way to attract help to you is by starting the ball rolling yourself. Help someone else! The Law Of Attraction and your angels and guides will bring your “helpers” to you exactly when you need them. In the meantime, you have the opportunity to make someone else’s day!

Namaste

Hawthorn

Hawthorn, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hawthorn, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Hawthorn: “Balance ~ Elemental Kingdom”

“This card is asking you to open to the magic surrounding you by taking time to feel gratitude. Hawthorn is an ancient tree, sacred to the elemental kingdom. Also known as a fairy tree or tree of protection, it is an ally for healing. Acknowledge the blessings in your life. Begin to cultivate a relationship with the fairies (sometimes called the good folk, fae, or Sidhe). Invoke their blessings in ritual and energy work. Open up your healing abilities. Respect these abilities and use them to help others.

Hawthorn calls for the balancing of your male and female energies. You need to integrate and harmonize these two qualities within yourself. Seek out the side that has been non-dominant, and express it.

Additional meanings for this card: Archangels Ariel, Jophiel, Metatron, Raguel, Michael, Raziel and Raphael are all associated with this symbol. On a physical level, hawthorn berries strengthen the heart and blood. Keep your heart healthy through good nutrition and by listening to its needs and desires. Open the pathways of the metaphysical heart so you may be more receptive to love and your highest good.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

The Elemental Kingdom is reaching out to us again. This time, through the magic of Hawthorn. Here, they are in a full, prolific abundance of blooms. Every inch is covered with perfect little white flowers. Hawthorn says to me that it is here to let us know that the Universe has more than you can possibly imagine. That there is so very much to go around. It wishes to work with us to banish our fear and lack mentality; replacing it with one of trust and deep knowledge of the graciousness of the Universe. Hawthorn speaks of living with the utmost conviction that the Universe is a magical place; full of miracles and abundance. That everything we need will always be provided. That when we have faith, we allow ourselves to receive.

Hawthorn also speaks of respect for the elementals. Of creating a strong connection; a relationship. It is about giving; not just taking. It warns of the consequences of hording or withholding; of blaming, competing and hiding. The thorns are there to remind us that we need not take more than we need. They are there to remind us that in order to work with the endless flow of possibility, we must employ gratitude, trust and respect for every living thing. Including ourselves. That we must slow down and move through our lives with focused intention.

Hawthorn is not about compromise. It is not about indecision, and it is not about feeling threatened. It is about leaps of faith; standing your ground; following your heart and finding your Soul.

For the Highest Good of All. By the Grace of the Universe.

Namaste
