I Surge On The Uprising Wave Of Love:
“My life can be summed up in three accounts:
I was raw,
I was cooked
and I was burned.”
“I surge on the uprising wave of love. No gravity can stop me from rising! The moon pulls the tide of life towards her, and my soul in oneness with all of life answers her call. A wave of love consumes me, and upwards I fly, flying through water, to greet her shinning body. Led by my heart, my wits are addled and my mind becomes a blurry mess; and so I feel instead, feel the truth of her love and the divine reflection she shines back at me from her radiant heart.”
“Greater forces of planetary movements affect us all. We experience day and night through the interplay of the earth, the sun and the moon. This is a profound and obvious effect. The movements of the cosmos affect us deeply – body and soul. Some movements are perhaps less obvious in form, but are just as great – if not more so – in effect up on our spiritual growth and life experiences. You are going through a cycle – or very soon will be – by which you will be moved by forces greater than your own personal ill. This is a karmic period, a time during which the movements of greater planetary bodies will have an impact upon the earth and humanity. This is the way of things, greater cycles affecting smaller ones. The smaller ones are not less important, but they do have to bow to the power of the great, in oneness with the magnificent unfolding divinity that is life itself.
What we always have at our disposal is choice as to how we respond to these affecting movements and cycles. The effect of this karmic cycle now unfolding in your life is to bring you into sweet surrender and awakening into greater love. What a delicious divine destiny! However, even if we sense at one level that a shift has a positive end in store for us, we can encounter resistance and fear, born of the ego, in response to the stirring of spiritual uprising. We may quake in our holy body and wonder if everything is getting out of control and into some disorder. We will be right in our sense of imminent chaos! The disorder, however, is the ego perspective because its range of vision is too small, too limited, to comprehend the greater workings of the planetary systems that move life towards love. That is as it should be. The teacup is not made to hold the ocean, just actually a cup of tea! But if we begin to imagine that the cup of tea is preferable to the ocean, simply because it is more containable, how much we miss out on!
And how terrifying when we are actually thrown into the ocean and moved by it! Its sheer power, its wild force and its passionate dance with the Moon Mother might have us fearing that we most certainly will die. Yet the only thing that is dying here and now is your grasp, our attempts at control Why? Because your heart is more powerful than your fear and it wants to live in total trusting surrender of the unfoldment of life’s genius. It wants to let life happen to it! What a wise intention that is.
Why seek to impose a smaller and less interesting story upon life when the great master storyteller is weaving a fantastic tale of great love, great adventure and sublime spiritual success? No. It is wiser, wilder and more fun to surf the great wave of consciousness seeking to overtake you now. Dive in, Beloved. Surge with it. You are being given a gift of grace in this oracle – the promise that you won’t drown, and that you will, in fact, be given a glimpse of your own divinity should you choose to accept whatever will be offered to you.
Don’t try to swim against the tide of your own life journey. Go with it. The Divine is there waiting for you, orchestrating waves upon which you may reach the heavenly shore. Yes, the Divine is there waiting for you, waiting on a picnic blanket of fabric of the heavens, with a sacred feast of earthly bounty just now being unpacked in your honour. Get yourself into that ocean and ride those waves to your sacred date with the Divine right now, sweet beloved. Surf’s up!
This oracle comes with a message for you. There are changes happening and they will be out of your control. This is because you are ready for accelerated life change. Rather than paddling, you will be caught up in a wave and moved farther, faster. Let yourself surge on with the energy of what is happening, leading with your heart and just going with whatever unfolds. This will bring you the best fortune and open you up to the divine destiny that is your birthright this lifetime.”*

Why swim upstream when you can jump in and enjoy the ride? We have these preconceived notions of how we think life should go and sometimes the Universe likes to challenge us on this. Sometimes we can’t see how amazing things are about to be because we are clinging on to the shore for dear life, thinking that the waters look turbulent and dangerous, when actually it could be the ride of our lives! Maybe we have jumped in a different river before, only to be tossed around, losing some of our faith along the way. Maybe we have never really trusted and jumped right in, keeping to the areas where we can touch our feet down just in case things don’t go the way we had planned…
But now, you are being asked to surrender completely to the Universe. To Love. To the Light.
What is on offer for you is exactly what you need. It will take you exactly where you need to be.
But you must trust. Even if the waters look a little scary; even if you don’t know what the journey holds and even if you have no idea what your final destination could be. After all, there really are no final destinations; only stepping stones along the way.
Surrender to the magic. Surrender to the Love.
