Angel Raziel and Pietersite: “Storm Wisdom”
“We bring you the gift of storm wisdom. This is the fierce cleansing nature of divine compassion made manifest in the world. Storm wisdom thrills the spirit, for it understands that so much benefit and liberation will come from the process; yet the mind may quake at the prospect of such little control over how your life events are unfolding for a time. What is happening during an experience of storm wisdom is that anything that has become stagnant or obstructing to your spiritual growth will be uprooted. You may find that the divine storm of transformation powering through your life creates a feeling of upheaval, creative chaos, uncertainty and excitement. You may feel simultaneously liberated and exhilarated, whilst also wondering if everything is going to be ok. You must remember that you will only be asked to give up something in order to receive that which is far more beautiful and supportive of your sacred life journey. You must also remember that the cleansing power of the storm will revitalize you, bring you fresh energy and perspective to take forward in your journey and is a divine blessing which will only bring good into your life.”
“Whilst the mind often wants to hold on and maintain the status quo, fearing change, the soul thrills at the prospect of joy, happiness and fulfillment that growth brings. It is so devoted to the manifestation of divine love in the world that it is willing to go through growing pains to bring the inspiring, vitalizing life of the spirit into the beautiful form of the body. The soul knows that temporary discomfort can bring tremendous gains for the spiritual path, and ultimately far greater joy and pleasure in life for the body too. The mind may need reassurance from the heart that all will be well during times of great change, and the wild blessing of storm wisdom is one such time.
Perhaps you have already felt a sense of discontent or restlessness in your body, mind or soul, feeling that a change is needed, even if you aren’t sure what that might best be. Or perhaps you are feeling that your life has finally settled down and you are quite happy for it to remain as it is for years to come! No matter whether you are in the midst of the storm of change already, just recovering from it, or waiting for it to move it’s cleansing grace through your life, know this – storm wisdom is love in action. It is not going to harm you and you do not need to fear it. It is going to cleanse you on all levels and allow for more life, vitality, purpose and passion to enter into your world. You will love the outcome that eventually manifests for you as the blessing takes shape. But you will need to reassure yourself that even amongst great change – whether that be something more internal, or shows up as big external changes in your life – it is safe to trust life.
When the Oracle of Storm Wisdom comes to you, there is a special message for you. If you are already in the midst of transformational change – perhaps that which is deeply challenging – and you cannot see any end in sight, or are worried that the changes are going to be devastating, have faith. This storm is wild, yes, but it is filled with grace. You are being helped. You shall come through this and the reason the storm was needed in your life is because a gentler method would not have been sufficient to free you. Divine intervention and protection, liberation and purpose is behind the storm raging through your life. It is love that moves you. Go with it. Do not resist. If you feel emotional as you read these words, you are recognizing truth. Trust in the responses of your feelings and know that all will be well, according to a compassionate higher wisdom.
If you do not yet see the storm in your life, do not be afraid. This oracle can indicate a time when there is much movement after a period of stagnancy where nothing seems to be moving forward. it is the burst of fresh air and life that increases your vitality and inspires you, whipping you up in a loving whirlwind of new opportunity, connection and love. There are those minds that fear the storms of life because they don’t trust in the benevolence of the Universe and how much they are actually loved. Then there are those that trust life and feel loved – they are the ones that stand head tilted up, arms flung open wide, yelling woohoo!~ as the rain pours down, the winds howl and fresh cold air cleanses body, mind and soul.
Be the lover of life who boldly receives love’s grace now. Let change be a welcome gift of love’s eternal grace, for that is what it is in truth.”*

The storm is coming, what will you do? Will you go outside and feel it’s power? Stand and face the gusting wind, feel the icy rain on your face? Or will you watch from the safety of your home, through the windows while the lightening lights up the sky and the thunder crashes? Maybe you will hide under a blanket, hoping that it passes and you don’t have to deal with it at all; that everything stays the same in it’s wake.
We cannot control the storm, we can only control how we deal with it. We can’t stop the wind from tearing apart our carefully tended flowers. We cannot stop the lightening from striking our favourite tree. We can only appreciate it’s immense power; it’s wild ability to stir up all the old energy and clear it away. We can be greatful for the release it gives us, the new air to breathe. We can thank it for getting us out of our comfort zones, where we might tend to stay for way too long; stunting our personal growth and expansion.
The storm is coming… or maybe it’s already here. How are you dealing with it? What will you do as it descends upon you?
Find your inner peace, harmony, and joy. For no storm can take that away from you.
(Unless you let it.)
