Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Stones ~ Creativity, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington
Three Of Stones ~ Creativity: “A huge trilithon stands amid bushes and rocks. On the left hand pillar there is a great aurochs from the painted caves of France; on the right is an ancient horse known as Przewalski. Standing between the stones, one hand on each, is a Green Woman, from whose feet roots of energy spread out as she draws upon the strength of the stones and the earth.”
Meaning of the Card: “An artist listens to the inner voice and hears the wind song of the universe. The courage, freedom and skill that allow the artist to mediate this energy must be refined and focused for effective and meaningful achievement.”
Reading Points: “The practical manifestation of creative energy requires a clear and open channel to the inspirational forces and impulses of the universe. Allowing this energy to flow through you is a rich and rewarding gift in itself. Just as releasing your dreams and desires into the universal consciousness always brings a response, so the releasing of creative energy invites into the artist the healing and enriching fuel from which further insight and visionary stimulus flows. This emotional and spiritual relationship with divine inspiration allows the subconscious mind to delve deeply and summons the intuitively creative power that actualizes work. Artistic beauty takes many forms and presents itself in a variety of ways, but the relationship with the subconscious formative energy, whether through music, painting, sculpture, or poetry, reminds us of the personal and intimate connection we all should share with the universal consciousness.”*

We are so much more than our daily routine, our jobs, our bills and our responsibilities. Yet this is what takes up the majority of our time and energy. We can feel like we are literally drowning in obligation, our time doesn’t feel like our own, there is always something more which could be done. Many of us need permission to take a break, we must ask our bosses or our family if we can just take a day to ourselves; make arrangements to cover our usual tasks or caregiving. It can be draining, exhausting, and definitely a challenge to the flow of our creative juices.
As the card shows us, one of the most powerful ways we can recharge ourselves is by spending time in nature. Just looking at the peaceful expression in the Green Woman’s face captures it all; the vitality and prana energy she is receiving from the natural world. It is time that you got back to nature? Have you been feeling like you are being pulled in too many different directions? Are you in need of some inspiration, does your zest for life need a bit of a boost?
Creativity is as vital to us as any other aspect of our lives, yet it is the first thing to go when are in survival mode. We focus instead on making money, on providing for ourselves and our families and protecting what is ours. We don’t make time to do what we love to do, as it seems like a luxury.
It’s time to get creative, stir up the old energy and manifest something new. Creativity comes in many forms, it can be an artistic outlet, or it can be using your vibrant imagination to draw what you desire to you. It can be a way of expressing yourself in the world that feels right to you; whether it is judged by others or not! However creativity comes to you, it comes from the Divine. When you are drawn to a certain medium, music, expression or activity that gets you in the flow… go with it, it is doing you so much more good than you can even imagine!
If you don’t know where to start, start outside. Get into the forest, go to the beach, spend time in the garden. Breathe in the fresh air and let it revitalize you, body, mind and spirit. Ask for inspiration, ask for creativity to come. And follow the guidance when it comes.
