metamorphosis

Daily angel card from The Enchanted Map Oracle Cards, by Colette Baron-Reid: Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis: ” You are in the process of deep and beautiful change.”

“Butterflies earn their wings through great effort. The process of change is often painful, for it is never without losses and sacrifices. If you are to transform from one form to another, a part of you needs to die.

Letting go is not easy, especially when you are used to thinking a certain way about your life and how you live it. Just as a snake sheds its dead skin, or a caterpillar “dies” so that a butterfly can be born, you are required to release your old ideas and embrace a necessary change so you can live your best life. Perhaps you are being asked to let go of low self-worth, a dream that no longer serves you, a relationship that is draining, or unhealthy habits. Despite your fear, you must accept that this is a transformational time for you. there will be some loss involved, but you will love what you become.”*

Even though spring is usually thought of as the season for new beginnings, to me, fall is a time for abundance and fresh starts too. Back to school, new fall clothing, crunchy colourful leaves, and if we are lucky, beautiful sunny crisp fall days. It’s a time to reap what you have harvested, and shed what’s not working. It’s a time of things coming to fruition, of hard work paying off and transformations completing. Get ready for change!

metamorphosis

Over eight years ago, I was in Bermuda, working as a tour guide and boat captain and dating the man of my dreams. In the fall of 2004 I made a trip home to see my family and work with my Dad on a project he was doing. In my spare time I went to see a tatoo artist and got one of my least favourite, teen tattoos covered up with a Blue Morpho Butterfly tatoo. I knew it was a time of transition in my life, I could feel it, although I had no idea where that transition would take me. I got the tatoo with a feeling that I was experiencing the calm before the storm…. then I went back to Bermuda. Within about eight weeks of getting that tatoo, I was pregnant with my daughter, making plans to quit my job and move back to Canada to immigrate my husband here. I’d say that was quite the change! If you had asked me what I thought was in my future right before that? I wouldn’t have had a clue. I know that probably sounds like bad planning, so I should clarify that having a baby was definitely a dream for me at that time, I just didn’t see that it would happen that fast, and yes! It was planned! Best plan I ever made! I was thinking according to the “rules” society sets for us, that you have to be courting for a certain amount of time, married for a certain amount of time, a house, money in the bank, the whole nine yards before you were “allowed” to plan to have a baby. We threw all that out the window and decided on a love child! And she’s one of the two best things that have ever happened to us!

What did I sacrifice? My freedom of course! My world traveling came to a screeching halt and I settled for the first time, well ever really. Travel is still on the agenda, but it’s on the back burner. What’s on the front burner? Family of course!

Namaste,

Debt Paid Off!

Published August 31, 2013 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Doreen Virtue

Daily angel card, from Magical Messages From The Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. ~ Debt Paid Off

Debt Paid Off: “The old weight and habit of debt is lifted from you and your life.”

“This card signals an impressive shift in your financial situation. You have made the clear decision to be free of old debts, and the Universe has responded in kind. YOu are presented with opportunites to reduce your debt, including new avenues of income and inner guidance about reducing nonessential spending. As you follow these leads, your financial situation rapidly improves.

Additional meanings for this card: Make a clear=cut decision to be debt free and the Unoverse will deliver. Cut up your credit cards. Question each expenditure to see if it is really necessary, or just an impulsive purchase. Know that you deserve to be, and can be, debt free. Resolve to initiate new spending habits-pay cash for everything, and if you do not have the cash, do not buy it. Tithe 10 percent of your income. You will receive a financial windfall. Affirm often that God is the true Source of your supply.”*

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see this card I do a little happy dance! Yey to being debt free, not an easy task in this day and age. Kudos to you if you are reading this wondering what all the fuss is about! We live in an instant gratification society, where you never have to wait for anything. Txt messages are almost instant, the only thing mailed to us these days is the odd bill here and there from companies who haven’t jumped on board with online banking. It’s so easy to live beyond your means, and sometimes necessary just to “keep up”. So a couple of hundred here, a few thousand there, even smaller bills all add up and suddenly, you are in over your head. Add a credit line, mortgage, a couple of car payments and wow, this is getting kinda stressful. Self employed? Even better, hold your breath and hope for the best when things start to slow down a little. And cross your fingers when your clients are slow to pay, like we have done a few times with my husband’s business!

So now here we are with a clear sign that there is a big happy light at the end of the tunnel…. being DEBT FREE!!! So, do we just sit back and do everything exactly the same way as we always do and expect the Divine to start raining money down on us? Well that sounds pretty awesome but it’s a little more give and take than that. Being receptive is key. We must use all of our senses to observe and receive the messages being sent to us. The feeling you get when you are just about to make a totally unnecessary purchase, knowing full well you will experience “buyers remorse” the moment you get home. Reuse! We are reusing the kids back packs and lunch kids for the third year in a row! We pass on clothes to smaller children of friends, and wear the hand me downs passed to us by the cool older kids, buying a few key pieces to tie it all together (well my son only cares about shoes being 6, but my 8yr old daughter is definitely aware of the fashion end of things.) We aren’t paying the $400 for the school bus this year, and I’m passing on after school care, another $285/month for two after schools a week. Of course, the money will be redirected into extra curricular activities and sports, mostly figure skating for my daughter, as well as swimming for both kids and basket ball for my son!

The Universe WILL help you to become debt free (yey) but we must put in a little effort and common sense, so that when the windfall comes we know what to do with all that cash, and we don’t waste it! Think of the people who win the lottery and are bankrupt only months after! So let’s get ready to be debt free! Bring it on!! I’m here to receive it!

Namaste

Archangel Gabriel ~ The Empress

Published August 29, 2013 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Gabriel

Daily Angel Card, from Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine: The Empress, Archangel Gabriel

The Empress: “Lavish abundance. Give birth to your dreams. Nurture yourself and others.”

“Your creativity and hard work are bringing you great rewards, according to this card. You have the Midas touch right now, so anything you nurture and give your loving attention to will flourish. Marriage, children, and issues involving motherhood and creativity are positively affected now. Whether you are trying to give birth to a child, nurture life into plants or pets, or help a new project or business to grow, your creative endeavors will be successful.

Enjoy the beautiful things in life, knowing that you deserve to be wonderfully provided for: Take excellent care of your body with massage; yoga; or anything that makes you feel healthy , vibrant, and luxurious.

Additional meanings of this card: Abundance. Spending time in nature, indulging in creative and artistic projects. Loving and nurturing yourself or others. A time of excellent emotional or physical health.

Archangel Gabriel is the messenger angel who guides and supports expectant and adoptive parents-as well as those involved in “newborn” creative projects. Call upon Gabriel to inspire your creative ideas and give you the courage and the opportunities to express them.”*

Today you can’t go wrong pursuing your dreams. Dig into projects that you have been wanting to start, don’t let fear hold you back any longer. This is your time to shine! You have the Divine support of Archangel Gabriel, who is watching over you at this time. Be sure to connect with her through gratitude, thanking her for her help, guidance and Divine intervention. Focus with laser intention on your dreams and don’t let your ego hold you back. You are on the right track, know it, feel your project completed in the most successful and abundant way and keep your faith in your ability at this time. Don’t let obstacles get in your way, they are only a distraction, not a hindrance; acknowledge them and let them go. You are unstoppable!

Spend some time in nature today, connecting with Mother Earth, grounding yourself to clear your thoughts. Find the power in setting your intention outside, while connected with bare feet to the earth. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a lot of time, even a few moments with palms open and receiving, face to the sky will make a huge difference. Then take a few moments to write you intention down on paper, carrying it around in your pocket with a favourite crystal is one of my favourite ways to keep my intentions close to my heart. If you have an “ego” moment of doubt, you can pull out your paper and read it, taking a moment to ask for Divine help and guidance. You will be amazed at the results. Vision boards are also a great visual stimulation to help you manifest your dreams. Keep yours somewhere that you can admire it many times a day as you pass by, filling it with images that make your heart and soul soar!

Namaste

Goddess Of The Unknown

Goddess of the Unknown

 

 

Daily Angel Card, from Angels, Gods and Goddesses Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno: Goddess Of The Unknown

Goddess Of The Unknown: “A new chapter of your life is just around the corner.”

“Only through the darkness of night are we able to see the beautiful tapestry of light which stems from the stars above us.

This card is here to help you ease your fears about the future and of the unknown. Even though you presently cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel, you are being urged by the Goddess to trust. You are always on the right path even when you think you have strayed completely off it.

A major chapter in the story of your life as recently come to a close and an exciting new chapter is about to begin. Through the current emptiness, the seeds of a fertile new future sprout through. Soon, you will see the light shining as brightly as ever.”*

Well, after the morning I have had today so far, change is welcome! My father is off to ER with ongoing issues, my son is on his third day of being covered in itchy hives which we can’t seem to figure out (other than the fact that he may be allergic to “back to school”) and my husband got screwed over by a client this morning! The good thing is that my Dad’s problems are not life threatening, my son’s are irritating but also not life threatening (we spent time in ER the other day to be sure) and my husband has lots of other work going on, so is not really affected by this annoying client! YEY for all that! Phew!! It’s so easy to get stressed, and then you have to remind yourself that stress is all just…. perceived! What’s stressful for me is not necessarily stressful for you and visa versa. It’s all a matter of perspective, how will this effect me now? Well, a little uncomfortable but nothing I can’t handle. Would I like some smooth sailing? Hell ya, but oh well, you have to count your blessings.

I am brought back to the recent death of a beautiful friend. Vibrant and lovely mother of three who left so suddenly. Nothing measures up to that kind of loss for that family. I have perspective. I send love and light to my Dad, asking Archangel Raphael to cover him in emerald green healing light and help him to get through this. I cover my son in bright white light and love and ask Divine guidance in figuring out how to help him, what he is reacting too (I am only half joking about school, it’s really not his favourite) and I ask Archangel Michael to cut any cords between my husband and his client. We will wish her only well and let her Karma catch up with her… it always does!

I send gratitude to the universe for everything that I have.

Namaste

Divine Magic and Blessed Change

Published August 27, 2013 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Doreen VirtueDoreen Virtue

Daily Angel Cards, from Magical Mermaids and Dolphins by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Divine Magic and Blessed Change

This is an auspicious day for sure! Whenever I draw the “Divine Magic” card, from that means that I get to draw another card, and that Divine Magic is in the works!

Divine Magic: “Extra magical energy surrounds your situation right now. Expect Miracles!”

“This card signifies that the next oracle card you pull out of the deck is surrounded by Divine magical energy. The Divine Magic card urges you to pay very special attention to this card, and do your best to follow it’s message.

The Divine Magic card indicates that a spiritual gateway has opened for you. At such times, your ability to manifest is heightened. Use this time to focus upon your desires. If you are unsure what you truly want, ask for Divine guidance through prayer, meditation, or ritual.”*

Blessed Change: “A major life change brings you great blessings.”

“Although you may feel as if your life is upside down right now, everything that is occurring is for the best. This card assures you that the changes in your life are actually helping you leave behind that which no longer serves you. Your spiritual purpose with the old situations is now complete. You are urged to stay centered in grace and acceptance. Keep affirming: “I welcome Divinely inspired change, and I stay centered in the eye of the hurricane as change occurs around and within me. All change is for my highest good. I know that love is stable and always provides for me and my loved ones-no matter what our outer situations appear to be.

Change ushers in fresh opportunities to learn, grow, prosper, and create new relationships. The key is to keep breathing and enjoy the changes, even if they are intimidating. If the Universe pushes you toward new responsibilities, know that you are qualified in Heaven’s eyes.”*

Well, I feel that this is a very special reading. After losing a friend a few days ago, and then having an ER trip yesterday with my son due to a fairly intense allergic reaction, it’s been a rocky week. Last night was the first time I have slept well in about a week. The hives are almost gone, which is a huge relief, although the void left by my girlfriend will be with those who love her for life.

Change is in the air, with less than a week of summer left and we are back to the fall routine of school, skating, swimming, regular exercise and some cleansing on my part to regain clarity. I am enjoying every bit summer has to offer while inhaling fall on the evening breeze. Change is welcome to me, and what better change than blessed change, supported entirely by the Divine.

I want to mention that I got the guts up to post on Doreen Virtue’s Facebook page about a new Facebook page I have started with the intention that everyone world wide can post positive prayers to help heal the Earth and those around us. It’s called World Wide Prayer Circle and I ask for your support and interaction. I am often devastated by news of the Oceans in trouble, oil spills, dolphin deaths, radiation, pollution and garbage. I want a way for someone like me, a Mother of two, coming from a family of Ocean lovers, to help from afar. What better way than asking for Divine help? While I chose these cards, this was weighing on my mind and I promise you, I actually heard seagulls out my window. I listened with my eyes closed and then ran outside. Just as I stepped out and closed the door I could hear then receding into the distance. We do live on an Island, but not close to the ocean, in fact, we are in a very rural area, with horses, and farms and fields. There aren’t usually seagulls in this area, we do get the odd eagle, but mostly crows, ravens and owls. I’m taking it as a sign that my idea will work, that we really can help the Earth and her precious oceans and the creatures living in them. It’s worth a shot!

Namaste

White Tara

Daily Goddess Card, From The Goddess Guidance Oracle Card Deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: White Tara

White Tara ~ Sensitivity: “You are becoming increasingly sensitive. Avoid harsh relationships, environments, situations, and chemicals.”

Message From White Tara: “As you have purified your inner world of thoughts, actions, and intentions, it’s natural that you seek purity in your outer world as well. This is to acknowledge your heightened sensitivity, which is as real as it seems! you have stripped away the outer protective layers of unneeded defenses, which blocked your psychic ans spiritual awareness. Now you are on the path of ascension, which calls for your heightened awareness. And with this awareness does new levels of sensitivity to the impure and harsh. Your body is a trust worthy instrument of measurement of your tolerance level. Steer clear of that which your body signals you to avoid. Take excellent care of your body, and it shall serve you well!”

Various meanings of this card: Acknowledge and honour your sensitivity. take steps to protect yourself from negativity. Avoid chemicals. Steer clear of situations with loud noise, crowds, violent media, and other triggers.

About White Tara (pronounced Tair-uh): White Tara is an aspect of Tara, a female Buddha and Hindu Mother Creator. The many female faces of the Buddha and Mother Creator are represented as various colours of Tara. White Tara represents purity, maturity, and compassion. The eyes on her hands, feet and forehead allow her to be aware of all prayers. She helps us to live long and peaceful lives.”*

Angel of The Universe

Angel of the Universe

 

 

 

 

Daily Angel Card, taken from Angels, Gods and Goddesses by Toni Carmine Salerno: Angel Of The Universe

Angel of the Universe: “You are being encouraged to expend your thinking.”

“By choosing this card, you are being guided by your angels to look at your life and work from a broader, more universal perspective.

The angels congratulate you for all you have done to date to serve and help humanity and those around you. Yet it is time to move on to the the next level. Trust your angels and the universe for they will guide you. There is no need for anxiety or fear. You are simply being encouraged to think a little bigger. Start to imagine yourself and your work reaching and touching larger numbers of people without losing any of the integrity of what you do. Imagine all this happening with ease and only in ways that will make you feel comfortable. It takes mo more effort to think big than to think small. There is no need to do anything radical at this time. Remember, to a large degree, we create our reality by what we think about, dream about and imagine. Simply think a little bigger and ask the Angel of the Universe to guide you.”*

 

I feel a bit like the wind has been knocked out of my sails today by the sudden and unexpected loss of a friend. One of those friends who, even though you haven’t known them for long, and haven’t spent enough time with them to call them a close friend, upon meeting them felt like a kindred spirit. My friend was a stay at home Mom of three beautiful small children, starting a home based business so that she could stay close to her family. She was a breath of fresh air, positive and warm to everyone she met. She was beautiful inside and out, and an old soul full of wisdom and light. My heart is heavy for her three children, two girls and a boy who will have to navigate their lives with out their wonderful Mama at their sides and my prayers go out to them in this heart wrenching time.

So what do we need to learn from this? As there is always a lesson. Recognize, every minute of every day how lucky we are to be close to our loved ones, to be able to hug or kiss them, to gaze into their eyes. After hearing the news and crying… a lot, still am… I crawled into bed beside my little son, just to feel his steady breath, smell his damp hair and little clammy hands. Just to be close to him. A kiss for my sleepy daughter and a snuggle with my husband helped to ground me and I went to sleep sending prayers to my friend’s family and prayers of gratitude for all that I have, promising never to take it for granted again, for even a moment.

The Angel of the Universe asks us to see the bigger picture in life. How can we be of service to those around us? What is our life purpose and how can we maximize that? How can we focus all our energies to create the best possible reality for ourselves and those around us? Life is precious, let go of those little things that drive you nuts and stress you out. Breathe, love, enjoy and give back. The world is your oyster, but not forever, making the pearls that much more valuable.

Namaste
