Jack-O’-Lantern ~ Protection:

“Oh Jack! Oh Jack!

Let me carve my protection

Shine your fire outwards

Evil rejection and reflection”

“Halloween wouldn’t be the same without the carving of pumpkins into scary jack-o’-lanterns. Glowing menacingly from porches, dinner tables and doorsteps everywhere, Jacks actually have a rich history and a spiritual bent.

The original term for a jack-o’-lantern was a will-o’-the-wisp, an old British term. The will-o’-the-wisp was a small bundle of sticks used as a flame or torch. The Celts, the Irish and those living in the Scottish Highlands all carved winter vegetables – not just pumpkins but also parsnips, carrots or beets. The time around Samhain (Halloween) was of course when the Fae and goblins were said to be roaming wild and so the lanterns were intended to be both scary (scaring off the undesirable) and to light the way in the dark.

Today, carving pumpkin jack-o’-lanterns has become an art in itself and a true icon of Halloween. Intricate designs both scary and funny can be found in almost every home that celebrates the holiday. Both electric light and candles now illuminate the inside of the lanterns.

Know that you are protected and that you are capable of creating the life that you want, and that the Universe supports you in this should Jack shine his light upon you. Boundaries are important to teach people how to treat us and drawing this card indicates that you may wish to renew the ones you have or to establish new ones.”*

Who can resist the magic of the pumpkin on this day of Samhain, when the veil between the realms is at it’s thinnest. Pumpkins at your doorstep or entryway will scare away the evil spirits and protect you and your family. Yet this is a day of fun as well, of costumes and candy and running through the night.

There is nothing evil about today, nothing truly scary. It has become commercial just like everything else; but it is a day of powerful magic and a wonderful day for meditation, contemplation and connection between the Earth and the Universe. Get outside if you can, walk through the forest and admire the changing leaves, the misty air and the damp earth… or whatever environment you happen to live in! Tilt your face to the sky and present your palms to the cosmos; take in the energies of the stars and the moon. Feel the amplified connection to the higher dimensions and use this opportunity to connect to your angels and guides, the ascended masters, and all higher beings. State your intention clearly, and make it for the highest good of all involved. Breathe the magic of the day in.

Light a candle and create some sacred space in your house today with flowers and leaves. Celebrate the harvest season and send gratitude. Connect to your pets, spending some special one on one time, helping them to feel safe and secure during the chaos of trick or treating. Set some intentions towards the relationships in your life right now; is there anything that needs to change? Commit to making those changes first within yourself; allowing others to follow suit.

Blessed be this day of Samhain.

Happy Halloween.

Namaste

King Solomon ~ Priorities

Card Meaning: “Devote time to your highest priorities, even if it means getting to bed earlier or later. This is a wonderful time to work on projects that are near and dear to your heart. Even if you are confused about how to approach the project, or you fear whether you will be able to accomplish your dreams, do it anyway.

You will feel elated by the time and energy you invest into your true priorities because your inner self will feel loved and well cared for. As you invest in your priorities, you are investing in yourself.

Additional meanings for this card: Let go of procrastination or perfectionism. Break your major goals into baby steps and take one step at a time. Revamp your schedule so that you devote regular time to your priorities. Be assertive in saying no to anything that diverts you from your path.

King Solomon ruled Israel following the death of his father, King David. Solomon was a wise and open minded man who understood the power of the goddess thanks to the influence of his many wives. Solomon used spiritual alchemy to build the temple of the Ark of the Covenant, based upon architectural plans that his father had received in Heavenly visions. Call upon King Solomon to resolve dilemmas, to build new projects, and to foster tolerance among various religious and spiritual paths.”*

~ By Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Sometimes we have the best of intentions and yet we still don’t manage to move forward consistently. We get distracted, or sidetracked, or we put our own needs behind the needs of others. If we keep doing this over and over, we may even eventually lose steam, moving our dreams from priority, to back burner. This is particularly common if we hold on to old belief systems that tell us that we must have everything perfect before we move forward. Often we don’t follow our hearts because we think that we need to lose 20 lbs first, or we need to pay off all our debts first, or we need to get another certification first. Yet if we can let go of all these distractions, which are actually just a form of procrastination, we could get a whole lot farther ahead than we realize.

We must use our time wisely, particularly in our overstimulated world of technology. How often have you gone to do something simple like return an email and ended up on social media for an hour… or is that just me?? Or we may see an ad for something and decide to check out apps or boots or dresses or books or whatever and find that we have wasted the time that we had allotted to working on a project that is close to our heart.

If we can turn off all the “noise” of outside influence, and get really focused on what we desire to create, we can accomplish so much. But we must be disciplined. And committed. Know in our heart that it is possible for us to succeed if we put our minds to it. And then actually put our minds to it!

Ask King Solomon to assist you in choosing your priorities and sticking to them. We have a few weeks left of 2015. This is an amazing year to succeed. Everything is on our side, from numerology to astrology. The planets are in alignment.

All we need it focus and determination.

One step at a time.

Peace Of Mind

Peace Of Mind, from the Healing With The Fairies, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Peace Of Mind, from the Healing With The Fairies, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Peace Of Mind: “Make peacefulness your highest priority. Commit to taking steps to ensure peace of mind, and take those steps without delay.”

Peace Of Mind is not something you have to earn or acquire, since your true self is already peaceful. Instead, it requires being like a sculptor with a block of marble, who works with this material until the inner masterpiece is revealed. If you will make peace of mind your main focus, you will inevitably feel a great sense of relief.

Steps that create peace of mind include being honest with yourself, living according to your inner guidance, being helpful and kind to others, practicing meditation or yoga, eating only healthful foods, avoiding toxins, maintaining healthy sleep habits, avoiding negative people and media, surrendering your problems to God, communing with nature, simplifying your life, and saying no when you need to.”

Affirmation:
“My mind is now peaceful

and I know that all of my needs

are automatically taken care of.

I can rest easily, assured that all is well.”*

~ Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

The state of peace of mind is the polar opposite to anxiousness or  worrying. It means detaching from the drama and letting go of expectations, particularly when you are feeling most out of control. When you feel it is the most challenging time to find your peace of mind, of course, the time that you need it most.

Take heart, Dear One, your breath is the bridge to Divine Peace. Breathing deeply calms and centers your body on a physiological level, which will help you to slow down and take the time to reconnect your body, mind and spirit. If it is difficult to still your mind, try counting your breath cycles of fours. Count slowly to four on your inhale, following the breath coming in through your nose and down into your belly or even right down into your feet and grounding through the floor into the Earth. Hold your full inhale for the count of four. Exhale slowly counting from four back to one, feeling the breath coming back up from the Earth, straight up through your spine and out your crown chakra, connecting to the Universe. Hold empty for the count of four. Do this until you feel calm and connected from the Earth to the Cosmos. Return to this breathing exercise whenever you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, filled with fear or doubt or even just to return to a peaceful state. The more you repeat the breathing exercise, the better you will become at it, and the faster your body and mind will respond. Try incorporating it into every day, even if you only do four breath cycles at a time. You will not believe the difference it will make to your peace of mind. I promise!

Lastly, if you are really struggling with the worries, you must retrain your brain. This is what affirmations do, particularly when used on a daily basis. Another trick that I use with my daughter, (who can get a case of the worries), is to breathe her worry into an imaginary balloon, letting it go out into the Universe. As soon as the worry is blown into the balloon, she replaces this thought with an affirmation. I have seen her secretly using this trick and the results it brings her are amazing. She says that she imagines that she blows her worry in to the balloon and then ties it up really tightly; then lets it go. As it flies up into the sky, she sees the angels come to take it. Then she holds her simple affirmation in her head. When the angels take it the worry out of the balloon, they beam bright white love and light back down to her, which magically activates the affirmation, making it a thousand times more powerful!

Worth a try I’d say!

Blessings, love and light.

Moment to Moment

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Moment to Moment, from the Osho Zen Tarot Oracle Card deck, by Osho

Moment to Moment: “As this figure moves across the stones, he steps lightly and non-seriously, and at the same time absolutely balanced and alert. Behind the swirling, ever-changing waters we can see the shapes of buildings; there appears to be a city in the background. The man is in the marketplace but at the same time outside of it, maintaining his balance and able to watch it from above. This card challenges us to move away from our preoccupations with other spaces and other times, and stay alert to what is happening in the here and now. Life is a great ocean in which you can play if you drop all your judgments, your preferences and the attachment to the details of your long term plans. Be available to what comes your way, as it comes. And do not worry if you stumble or fall, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, have a good laugh, and carry on.

The past is no more and the future is no yet: both are unnecessarily moving in directions which do not exist. One used to exist, but no longer exists, and one has not even started to exist. The only right person is one who lives moment to moment, whose arrow is directed to the moment, who is always here and now; wherever he is, his whole consciousness, his whole being, is involved in the reality of here and in the reality of now. That is the only right direction. Only such a man can enter into the golden gate. The present is the golden gate. Here and now is the golden gate… and you can be in the present only if you are not ambitious, no accomplishment, no desire to achieve power, money, prestige, even enlightenment, because all ambition leads you into the future. Only a non-ambitious man can remain in the present. A man who wants to be i the present has not to think, has just to see and enter the gate. Experience will come, but experience has not to be premeditated.”*

~By Osho

The only true experience of the present is to release expectation, fear, worry, anxiety and pain. Clearing your head of the past and releasing control of the future we can be in the true now. The only moment we ever have the capability of experiencing… if we allow it. In this world of technology, where we are obsessed with what has happened to us and where we are going, what we will accumulate and how long things will take, it is very easy to lose track of the present moment.

For example, stop now and take a deep breath. Follow your breath from your nose all the way into your belly and back out. Is this the first breath you have been fully aware of today? Hold one hand up in front of  your face and really look at it. This will anchor you into the present moment. Plant your feet on the ground, or better yet, the bare earth. Feel the grounding powers of being reconnected to the Earth. These are all ways to bring yourself back into the Now.

And remember, this is where your life takes place. Moment by moment.

Namaste

Labradorite ~ The Mind’s Eye

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Labradorite ~ The Mind’s Eye, from the Crystal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Judy Hall

Labradorite ~ The Mind’s Eye: “Iridescent Labradorite raises your consciousness to connect to mystical dimensions and the highest protective energies. It assists in safely accessing past, present and future. It strengthens your faith in yourself and aids your intuitive guidance.

Self Understanding: You are an intuitive being who has the gift of foresight and who is in touch with other realities. Keep yourself grounded. The veil between the worlds is thin for you and you could easily confuse yourself and others with your imaginings. Aim for clear insights. Hold on to your common sense – it is your most effective tool in assessing your intuitions and acting on those that are valid.

Divination: You face a temporary setback, but a sudden reversal of fortune is possible. Be careful what you wish for; it may come true. Beware psychic vampires. Ensure that you do not have a “leaky aura” that allows others to draw on your energy field. Raise your consciousness to the highest levels. Traditionally, Labradorite indicates capricious love.

Frequency: High

Chakra: Third Eye, Crown

Timing: Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius

Soul Path: Opening the inner eye”*

~ By Judy Hall

I absolutely LOVE labradorite! Every piece is special. Every flash is magical. You can literally feel the magic flowing through it’s rainbows of light. Labradorite is a portal to the Higher Realms. When you wear it, and attune to it’s high frequencies, you will notice a marked increase in the Divine signs, messages and synchronicities in your life. Labradorite works to open the higher chakras, your third eye and crown chakras in order to amplify your connection to the Divine. It is particularly helpful for those who wish to increase their extra sensory perceptions: clairvoyance (clear sight), clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentience (clear feeling), claircognizance (clear knowing) and clairalience (clear smelling), and even clairgustance (clear tasting). It is also helpful for those who desire to study mediumship and strengthen their connection to those who have passed over, or those who do readings of any kind. It is protective at the same time as it is opening and connecting, which is the perfect combination for a stone that assists those using psychic senses.

Labradorite is an abundant stone, and can be found in all metaphysical shops and rock hound shops. It is from the feldspar family and has a rich iridescent flash. High quality forms of labradorite are called Spectrolite and are flashy and translucent at the same time, making fabulous eye catching jewelry. However, to get the magical energies of labradorite, all you need is a simple tumbled or natural stone, which would be very affordable and easy to find. Once you find your piece of labradorite, be sure to cleanse it by leaving it outdoors under the full or new moon, bathing in salt water over night, smudging with White Buffalo Sage, or one of the many various ways of cleansing crystals. Once your crystal is cleared, you can hold it in your right hand and set the intention to work together with this stone for the highest good of all. Then hold it in your left hand, close your eyes and breathe the energy in. Feel it going up your arm, and through your body. Notice how this makes you feel. Meditate with your stone regularly, for at least a few minutes a day to connect to its amazing energies. Wear it, place it in your pocket or under your pillow to keep this energy flowing as well as to form a protective energetic barrier around you.

Namaste

Little Wolf Girl

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Little Wolf Girl, from the Oracle Of The Shapeshifters Oracle Card deck, by Lucy Cavendish

Little Wolf Girl ~ Message: “It is all right to be alone”

About Little Wolf Girl: “This small girl who changes in the woods, under the full moon, into a creature wild and undomesticated, remains gentle, soulful, and true to her essence. She wants you to know your solitude is your sanctuary. She wishes you to know that while these changes will be empowering, at first they make you vulnerable, fragile, and open – as she is if you gaze deeply into her eyes. You must wear a symbol of what you are becoming at this time, as she does, and take on that which you wish to change into. This will become your talisman, and it holds great magick within it. Choose this alone.”

Little Wolf Girl Speaks: “I am alone. This is is a good thing. I am not sorry for my solitude. I will defy boundaries, expectations, and the labels others wish to place on me. For this moment I stand alone. I am by myself. And that is all right. I am changing. By myself, I can change without influence. Perhaps you are changing too. You are like a tree or a snake, and you are shaking off the dusty, too tight skin of the past, of your exile from the world of nature and, most of all, of the words others have used from the world of nature and, most of all, of the words others have used to describe you. You are awakening from a prison of conditioning and thought, and freeing yourself for a future of true, authentic, powerful, blissful – and sometimes testing – times and lives. You are changing. Your new sensitivity will help many people connect more deeply to the physical world, which is continually feeding you with imagery, energy, and messages. But before you can achieve great things, you must change, even if the only change is to choose the courage to be alone.

Divination: “Your changes are becoming conspicuous to others, so, for now, be sure to keep the changes safe while you nurture them. Now is either the right time to proclaim them loudly, nor is it the time to be mysterious. It is wise to allow them simply to happen. Some will notice and give you their support. Others will notice and give their disapproval. You must learn to discern what advice is wise. Be not needful of approval and flattery, or of condemnation against which to rebel. Just keep on being your true self, and give yourself space and solitude. Allow the Little Wolf Girl to show you how – and hose who are no longer meant to be in your life will depart. Do not worry. Just keep on becoming. And be, for now, in the best company of all: your own.”*

~by Lucy Cavendish

I love the idea of wearing a talisman in the shape of your transformation… this truly resonates with me. I love the idea that it would be a talisman of protection during the transformation; creating an energetic boundary around you which would prevent anyone from throwing you off your course. I also love that it would be a constant reminder of your process, that you are a work in progress, and that it would help to guide you through.

What are you becoming? Free and wild and true? A Goddess of Divine Wisdom and power? A Shaman, a magician, a wise and powerful healer? A manifestor of light? A vortex of love? A deep well of compassion? Only you can decide.

And when you do decide, step into it with grace and ease and beauty. With truth, authenticity, strength and courage. With the intention of the highest good of all.

And so it is.

Soft

Soft, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Soft, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

“A sanctuary bathed in soft light, your heart is receptive, inviting and gentle. It brings strength to the weary, comfort to the lonely, and healing to the wounded. It is a magnet for all that is needed – for you, your beloveds, your world. Don’t imagine you must always be the fighter, going against the part of your nature that longs for harmony and peace. This is your time to be soft. To surrender. To let the subtle waves of the heart invite love in, and to receive. In doing so, you will give so much.

This oracle brings you a message of peace. Surrender now. Be soft. Even for this moment of quiet reflection. You have perhaps been working too hard at growing and living. Take some moments to replenish and allow the divine to help you, dear one. Be soft so you are receptive to the Divine. It is when we let go that we truly perceive the obstacles that lie between us and oneness with the divine lover. Let go and perceive that the divine lover is already awakening in your heart.

“You are the softness he desires

You help light his way

You nurture all

That he holds dear

Though tempest clouds dismay

And in the quiet of the storm

His gentleness comes through

And in the shelter of his arms

His heart is there for you.”*

~ by Alana Fairchild

We are warriors. We are constantly transforming; stepping into our truth. We are powerful, strong, courageous and free. Yet we are still human. We are still sensitive, vulnerable, emotional and loving beings. These are aspects of ourselves to be cherished and revered. They are what make us who we are. Who we are as individuals, as partners, parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles and cousins. Friends and care givers. As compassionate listeners and  healers. They are two sides of the same coin, equally important. Equally valuable.

This is the polarity of Being.

Take some time to honour your human side, allow yourself to process the emotions that you have been experiencing through your time of transformation. Know that they are part of the journey; the letting go of the old to make space for the new. Let them flow through you, even if they bring tears, for these are tears of healing and will gently guide you through the process of releasing. Tears are magic bridges to the next chapter, never hold them back. Breathe out all the old fears, old pain, past hurts, self doubts and any toxic energy that has burdened your soft and beautiful heart.

Allow yourself this reflection and release. Move through it and come out the other side peaceful, balanced and wise. Knowing that there is so much love for you here. A legion of angels singing your praises. The ultimate force of energy of the Universe surrounding you.

With so much Love.

Namaste
