St. Therese of Lisieux ~ Steady Progress

Published February 28, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

St. Therese of Lisieux ~ Steady Progress

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Saints and Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: St. Therese of Lisieux ~ Steady Progress

St. Therese of Lisieux ~ Steady Progress (Little Flower): You have been making steady progress, and it is important for you to recognize that his progress (not perfection) is what is important. This is a message for you to appreciate how much you have already achieved and how many people you have helped along the way. Keep your focus away from any lapses that you think you have made. Guilt and regrets never helped anyone, so let them go today.

You are also asked to forgive yourself for what you think you have done or not done. St. Therese did not live a life of spiritual perfection (she often fell asleep or was distracted during her prayers, for example.) Yet she insisted that it is the “little ways” of steady progression that connects us with God and Heaven. She wrote: “Learn and grow from your challenges, but do not let them stop you from your devotion or spiritual path.”

St.Therese was born in Lisieux, France, in 1873 and became a Carmelite Nun along with two of her sisters. Therese began having mystical experiences, which she wrote about (only because her mother superior ordered her to do so) in an autobiography called “the Story of a Soul.” Many miraculous cures of ailments such as ulcers, tuberculosis, and arthritis are attributed to St. Therese’s intercession. Upon her deathbed, she promised to send roses as a sign of her presence and devotion, so she is often referred to as “Little Flower.”*

We can be so hard on ourselves, forgetting to use the same compassion that we would to a loved one or family member in need of support and acceptance. We can focus on our thoughts on past injustices and have an inner dialogue of negativity; berating ourselves for mistakes or poor decisions we have made in the past. Imagine if we turned all that around? Imagine if we had a continual positive dialogue playing in our heads, of all the wonderful stuff we had achieved, how many people we had helped and how incredible and promising our future is looking? What a huge difference in perspective!

We are here, in our material existence, to experience this life with all of our physical senses. We work on raising our vibration, seeing the positive, looking for miracles and remaining optimistic, yet there are times when we “fall off the wagon” and just feel the lower energy emotions; frustration, irritation, envy, anger, or resentment. So then what? Are we not spiritual anymore? Are we not worthy? Quiet the opposite, we are only human and if we can feel compassion for ourselves, recognizing instantly that our emotions are telling us that we are going in the wrong direction from where we would like to be vibrationally, we have the opportunity to fix it, right then and there! Every feeling is a sign to us, from our soul or higher self, to our conscious waking mind. Feeling light, carefree, joyful and passionate signals that you are on the right path vibrationally; anything is possible. Feeling heave, upset, frustrated, anxious or angry is a sign that you have taken a fork in the road, you are now heading in the opposite direction from your dreams and desires. So what do you do in this case? Grab the steering wheel and get back on course!! Breathe, take a few moments to ground yourself, speak your truth, follow your heart, ask for Divine Guidance or intervention. Know that you are worthy, know that you are love and know that this too shall pass, and something much better is on it’s way to you. Then work on being the vibrational magnet to your heart’s desire, one thought, one feeling at a time!

Namaste

Transformation ~ Create Magic

Published February 27, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Transformation ~ Create Magic

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Crystal Wind Oracle Card Deck, by Antonio DeLiberato: Transformation ~ Create Magic

Transformation ~ Create Magic: Wonderful and magical energies rise up from the cauldron.”

Card Meaning: “You are ready for a transformation. You have planned and thought things through and set into motion the next step of phase of your life. Even though it may seem that everything has stalled, the universe is answering and you are about to receive what you have asked for. This card indicates good fortune and could signify that the cycle is about to end and a new one is about to begin. What you have asked for is about to become real.”

Card Interpretation: “When you work on transformation magic, there is no place for confusion or disorder. Seeking transformation is the creative principle behind all magic. When a magical ritual is performed, regardless of “tradition” or other variables in the elements of performance, a magical energy is created and put into motion to cause something to happen. Magic is really one path that is many paths. It is a way of taking what works for you, adapting it, growing it, molding it, changing it and then writing everything down. Your successes are what dictate your growth. An underlying principle in magic is the existence of potential, which magicians call Spirit.”*

Here we have come full circle again to a wonderful message of our dreams coming true, our prayers being answered, and our desires being met. How can it get any better than this? Well, it can get even better if this message is met with joy, excitement and expectation; although hope and optimism are close seconds. Yes, some positive high vibrations will take this from a dream to a reality in a much shorter time than you may imagine… in fact, putting any time constraints on your imagination is never a good idea, as when things really get going they will blow all that out of the water anyhow, and who wants to be held back by those silly limitations anyhow!

Your prayers have been heard, your angels are with you, you are using the Law Of Attraction to match positive high vibrational energy like like the incredible magnet that you are, and it’s all paying off… big time! Aim high, create your reality with boundless enthusiasm, creativity and passion. Thank your angels, guides, ascended masters and the Divine for bringing these dreams and desires to you in a way that is so incredible, it supercedes all your wildest dreams. See it, feel it, know it in your heart. This is it, the sky is the limit, the world is your oyster and you are shooting for the stars… are you getting all this?

So, looks like there are some pretty sweet people, places and opportunities heading your way, or are they right here, right now all ready to be experienced with every cell of your body? Be on high alert, plant yourself firmly in the now and use all your senses. Have fun looking for signs, messages and synchronicities, as they actually surround you, right now. Know that they will undoubtedly lead you to the miracles around every corner. How awesome is it to be you? I have goosebumps, it’s that awesome!

Love Abounds

Published February 26, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

love abounds

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Psychic Tarot For The Heart Oracle Card deck, by John Holland: Love Abounds

Love Abounds, Key Words: Trust, optimism, open, radiate.”

“Rejoice! When this card appears, it is telling you that you have the potential to achieve everything that you want. The powerful energy of love surrounds you. Use it! Listen to your heart – what is it asking you to do? Should you reach out your hand in friendship to someone, offer forgiveness, or make yourself more available? Trust in your ability to create and maintain true, loving relationships. Now is the time to make that happen.

Be optimistic and open to all possibilities. Open your eyes, heart, and energy field to receive the bounty that is coming to you. Release any negative thoughts and beliefs around love. They do not serve you and, in fact, can prevent love from finding you. This card is a reminder to focus on your beautiful, loving qualities and let them radiate out into the world. By letting your Light and Love shine, you will attract your heart’s desire.”*

Last night I had a lot of dreams, but that is normal for me, I dream every night. When I was a kid they tried moving me around the house, I slept on the floor in the living room, the dining room, just to see if it would make a difference. I remember almost every dream I have ever had clearly. I used to write them down but I would have journals full of them so I stopped years ago. Now of course I kind of wish I had stuck with it, but I had faith that I would always remember… so far so good!

As I write this I have goose bumps. Last night I dreamed that I was here to teach people how to raise their vibration, using information networks like social media, which is so amazing because you can attract like minded people so easily and quickly, and also using some simple physical tools. My tools are crystals, no wonder I love them so very much!! As I have mentioned before, I have had a love for crystals since I was a child and this is being carried on my my own kids. I have collected them from every country I have visited, go to every rock show and know most of the local dealers here on a first name basis. I thought I was a collector! But actually I’m really not. I am collecting back tools that I have been using over lifetimes to help and heal.

The Earth is in peril at this time, we all know this. What we don’t know, is that we, first as individuals and then as a collective, can help. But we must start by striving to raise our vibration. Raising your vibration should be seen as more important than winning that $50 million dollars we all dream about. It’s that important; more important. We can heal each other, and heal the planet with high vibrational energy. And the funny thing? As you read this, you know that it is true. That is why you are here. You are part of something bigger than this material world. If you have been unhappy, ailing or lost, you are now turning a corner and will be able to take control of your life.

This is not rocket science, this is Universal Love, and we are fully capable, each and every one of us, of receiving it and radiating it out to others. We must get past lack, doubt, and fear, as they don’t actually exist past our limited egos. This is the message I received last night, that I am here to help you to raise your vibration.

Depending on where you are right now, there are steps you can take to get the ball rolling. Start with forgiveness, of yourself and others. Let it all go, you don’t need it anymore. Move to gratitude and then into love. Meditate, do yoga, work with and wear crystals. Get outside. Send and receive love with the Universe and Gaia, our beautiful planet. Practice, practice, practice. Ask what your part in this is and listen, feel, and be here; receptive to the answer. When you know why you are here, take action.

This is your gift to the world. This is not heavy, it’s love and light!

Dreaming Heart

dreaming heart

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Dreaming Heart

Dreaming Heart: “Do not lose sight of your purpose. Know that your efforts are being rewarded. But do not dwell on this, for your greatest reward is the love you are helping to create in the world.”

“This card is confirmation that because you have been working from your heart, you are having a positive impact on those around you. You are a healer by nature for you hold great love in your heart. This love radiates from you and is spiritually felt by all upon the Earth. It helps to heal our world. Your angels and guides want you to know that your love is invaluable to the Earth and those around you at this time. They understand that you sometimes feel that your work goes unnoticed, at times you may even doubt whether it is having any effect at all. Even though you may not always be able to see the positive effects your love and encouragement have on others, please take heart in the knowing that they do. Each time you offer love to others, be it through a loving gesture, thought or word, you plant the seed of love in that person. They may choose to let the seed lay dormant for a while or to let it sprout – the timing is up to them.

Rest assured however, that everything you do has an effect, whether visible or not. Love generates love. Trust dearest one, trust in the love we have for you and in the love you have for others. You will receive some positive feedback in the next few days from someone you unknowingly helped recently. Take this as further positive confirmation of what we have said and remember it next time you start to doubt yourself.”*

Love attracts love; it is the Law of the universe; the corner-stone for the Law Of Attraction. When you work through your heart, without expectation or need, radiating universal love unconditionally; you will help to heal the connection between every creature on this planet. In fact, it goes even farther than that. By working from love, you will not only raise your own vibration, allowing for an increase in your consciousness, but you can heal and leave your past Karma behind. By raising your own vibration, you can heal people simply by being on the planet, the closer proximity we have to someone, the more healing benefit they will receive.

We have scientifically proven, many times over that everything, from creatures to objects, is made up of an energetic vibration. Knowing this, we can start to understand how we, as high energy beings, can positively or negatively affect each other and the creatures around us. When we are capable of lifting ourselves out of our limited egos, and see the bigger picture, we can realize that being joyful is healing to our physical bodies, due to the high positive vibrational energy it creates. Being joyful shouldn’t be linked to any physical or material goal, but needs to be achieved in spite of any other non-contributing factors in our lives. For example, thinking that we will allow joy into our lives WHEN we: are thinner, richer, healthier; or have that new house, car or outfit, is completely the opposite of how we are meant to be living. When we finally, collectively can figure this out, we can make a quantum leap into the new consciousness, leading us to freedom by unlocking the true potential of our minds.

If you have any doubt what so ever about how energy affects us, check out this amazing video on Dr Emoto’s water experiment, keeping in mind that we are made up of approximately 90% water, while you watch the drops of water form beautiful snow flakes, imagine this effect upon every cell in your body:

What would you like the cells of your body to resemble, mud puddles or snowflakes? We must understand the importance of raising our vibration; that it heals, brings higher consciousness, connects us to joy and the Divine, and maybe most importantly, raises the vibration of the people around us and the Earth herself, which is a gateway to transformation.

Aquarius ~ Giving Back

Published February 24, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Crystal Wind Oracle Card Deck, by Antonio DeLiberato: Aquarius ~ Giving Back

Aquarius ~ Giving Back

Aquarius ~ Giving Back: “Life giving waters are poured with impartial benevolence.”

Card Meaning: “Your love and knowledge is to be shared with everyone at this time. You may be asked to lead in a group project. Learn to be open minded and consider all points of view. You will start to lead a contributive life. Consider getting involved, on a grass roots level, with social projects. You are a go to source of original solutions to any problem!

Interpretation of the Card: “Water is a universal image dating back into prehistory. The association to the age of Aquarius is that of the servant of humanity pouring out the water of knowledge to quench the thirst of the world during a time of spiritual drought. The symbolic waves of water share the dual expression of vibrational waves of electricity or parallel lines of force. This is the age of self-realization. In this age, dogmatic types of religion will cease to be taught, and all dogmatic forms will disappear. Science and religion will merge and people will begin to comprehend that spirit and matter are derived from the same source, and are only modifications of the One Universal Energy. It is the desire to pool and merge the time, efforts, and resources of the individual with those of the larger society in order to create something new for the benefit of everyone.”*

We are in a very important transitional time in our Universal consciousness. There are those of us who are ready to transform to our higher conscious, those who are drawn to the metaphysical, the angels, the mystical secrets of energy and healing. We are here to spread love and teach people the importance of our connection to one another and also our connection to the Divine; which runs through all of us, whether we are able to realize it or not. This is a time of sharing positive knowledge, of shedding old, negative thinking and of spreading wings. We can fly together, using the power of love.

This is not a time to be caught up in the material realm; to be swayed by the bias of the media; or to be comparing yourself on a mundane level to those around you. This is a time to reach for the connection to your higher self; finding your strength to surpass the ego that holds you hostage here on this Earthly plane. We can live without fear, we can raise the vibration of those around us, and we can access a higher knowledge and Universal Wisdom that has been lying dormant within us.

That feeling of fear, insecurity and doubt? Those sinking feelings of loneliness and isolation? That nagging feeling of something missing in your life? It’s not the mansion of your dreams or a Bentley. It’s not a Prada purse or a pair of Chanel earrings. It’s a connecting with something so simple, yet so profound, that it can fix everything. It’s not in a church, or a temple, but it is in you. You can make the connection with the Divine, through your heart and mind, whenever and wherever you like. You are the vessel, you are the light, and you are the connection to everything else here on this planet. When you can see that, you can raise your consciousness, knowing that you are not alone. You can raise your vibration, helping those around you just by being around them. You can draw the like minded people to you and feel the connection in the material world. That is why we see so many unhappy people surrounded by riches yet missing something; often filling the void with violence, alcohol and drugs. Rise above your patterns and see the bigger picture. Ask your angels and guides to help you remember why you are here, and get ready to share that knowledge with a world that is finally ready!

Archangel Zadkiel ~ Teaching And Learning

Published February 23, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Zadkiel ~ Teaching And Learning

Daily Angel Oracle, from the Archangel Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Archangel Zadkiel ~ Teaching And Learning

Archangel Zadkiel ~ Teaching And Learning: “Keep an open mind, and learn new ideas. Then teach these ideas to others.”

Additional Message: “You are a spiritual teacher and an avid learner. Learning and teaching are linked in a perfect cycle, in which information comes to you when you need it. Teach others about the topics that awaken your passions. The more you teach, the more your lessons are reinforced within yourself.

Be open to sharing new ideas, and learning about topics that are not in your immediate sphere of interest. Your students will teach you in many ways, too. Trust in your teaching and learning abilities, as your mind is one with the Divine Mind Of God. You are an intelligent and wise being. Know that it is safe in this lifetime for you to be outspoken in your teachings.

Working with Archangel Zadkiel: Zadkiel is the ultimate spiritual professor. he is patient, kind, and has access to all knowledge. He is widely known for his ability to help human memory function. If you need to remember or memorize any information, ask Zadkiel to assist.

Anything that you need to know Zadkiel is glad to teach to you. Just ask him questions in order to elicit his help. Sometimes Zadkiel uses the Socratic method of teaching which means that he will lead you so you can learn for yourself. Being observant of patterns in everything you see, hear, and think is the best way to benefit from Zadkiel’s teachings.”*

The best teachers I have ever had taught with an open mind, using grace and flexibility to allow each student to offer their own unique perspective to the lessons. These teachers listen when you speak, weighing your point of view and allowing it to differ from their own. They see each person as an individual, with gifts that can enhance the experience of the other students, and they are not threatened by thinking outside the box. This is the way I try to view parenting, and although it can be challenging, it does help me appreciate my kids strong personalities and interesting ideas. Listening to their theories lifts my spirits knowing that they are using their limited life experience combined with their own personal philosophies.

As a teacher, learning as you go, you must master the art of listening; if you just stop to listen, you just never know what you could learn! We are often so busy texting, checking our emails or otherwise glued to technology, that it’s hard to get someone to give you their undivided attention. A great teacher understands the power of giving your undivided attention to their student. This attention helps them grow as a person, whether they are right or wrong. This is especially true in children, as they are building up their confidence and self-esteem, they are learning to express themselves without fear, and they are learning to present their unique point of view clearly and concisely.

You always learn something when you teach, if you give yourself the chance to be fully immersed in your subject and open-minded about how the information is to be shared. Be creative, allow interaction and open your heart to your student. Ask Archangel Zadkiel for Divine Guidance if you are not sure what you can teach; you, like everyone have a special gift that will benefit those who hear it.

Namaste

Speak Your Truth ~ St. Bernadette

Published February 22, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Speak Your Truth ~ St. Bernadette

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Saints and Angels Oracle Card Deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Speak Your Truth ~ St. Bernadette

Speak Your Truth ~ St. Bernadette: “This is a strong message for you to speak up and tell the truth. Give any fears or worries about others’ possible reactions to God, St. Bernadette, and your angels. You can speak honestly in a loving way and still stay in integrity. No matter how other react, you must give voice to the truth as you see it. Heaven will protect you and will guide your words as you say them.

As you do so, some people will agree with you wholeheartedly – they have been waiting for someone to voice this information. Yet, others may disagree with you. Stick with what you believe, regardless of how people react. You are a truth teller, and as long as you speak with love and conviction, you have got nothing to fear.

St. Bernadette is a wonderful example of someone who followed this guidance, even when she was threatened with imprisonment for doing so. At the age of 14, she had her fist of 18 visions of the Blessed Mother Mary near her home in Lourdes, France. Mother Mary instructed Bernadette to dig in the dirt, and the hole eventually became the healing springs of Lourdes.

While receiving these visions, the saint and her family were threatened and harassed by government officials, who accused her of lying and insanity. Yet Bernadette consistently and politely spoke her truth. Today, more than five million people annually visit the healing waters of Lourdes and benefit from St. Bernadette’s courage.”*

When you speak your truth with courage and conviction, people take notice. You can release any fears and doubts that your words will be met with disbelief if you first ask assistance from your angels and guides. Ask them to send like minded people to you, who will aid you in your journey. Often we know what is right, but we are held back by fear of judgement from others around us.  It may be that they really need to hear what we have to say, and their fear and judgement comes from the simple fact that they just don’t understand us, yet, and that is what causes them to fear what we have to say.

I found myself using a filter when I spoke to people about Angels, readings, crystals or really anything metaphysical or “new age” or what I would consider to be higher consciousness. Starting this blog wasn’t easy as far as me wondering what people would think when they read it, or how people I know would receive the information. I had such a nagging feeling that I just had to get on with it and write, that I decided that I would just try it and see what happened. I started out on an affiliate blogging site that was recommended to me by a friend, and since I knew nothing about blogging. I thought I would give it a go, but it just didn’t feel right to me; it was too linked with the company itself wanting to benefit from the people who were reading my information. So I gave it up and started this blog; my very first WordPress blog and I had no idea really whether or not it would work out in the end, but I knew I had to have faith and make the leap. I have never missed a day, and I have never been happier!

My filter is going, almost gone! All my friends know, and those who don’t want to know or don’t get it have fallen by the wayside. Family members have adjusted and me taking time to write my blog is an expected every day task, with no one complaining or commenting, in fact they are usually interested, even my 6 year old, to see which card is “for today”. Mom’s at school know, my extended family of “in laws” know and everyone seems quite OK with it. I was thrilled to have positive input from a sister in law on my husband’s side. It makes it all worthwhile to know that you are accepted. But the acceptance came from me first; if I had not made the decision to live what I dreamed of doing, and gotten through the rough bits at the start, I would not be where I am today! I write these every day because I want to help the people that are drawn to reading the messages. I make jewelry because I dream of crystals helping people heal themselves and raise their vibrations. I make angel boxes (soon to be announced!) because they help people manifest their dreams. These things raise my vibration and help you to raise yours. That is what gifts are about.

So then, my question to you is: What is your gift? What is your truth? And when are you going to share it with the world? How about now?

Namaste
