Every Journey Starts With A Single Step: “You are on a journey. Yes, it is an internal journey but there is also a physical expression of this journey that is going to become increasingly important to the fulfillment of your destiny in this lifetime. Your journey has started on the inside but its destination will be the physical expression of an internal healing. This journey will draw upon what you have learned and mastered over the course of your life – so much so, that you may feel as though your life experiences have prepared you just for this particular adventure.
You have all that you need within you. This is not a time to worry about what you are going to take with you. From within your heart, you will sense what needs to come along for the ride and what is best left behind you now. You may be surprised at exactly how much can be left behind without you feeling concerned or anxious. You will be able to travel far lighter than you ever imagined possible.
To be best equipped for this journey, you will need a lightness of heart and the realization that change can be an incredible blessing, even if what you are leaving behind is something you found secure, safe, familiar or comforting. Just as the butterfly leaves the chrysalis behind when it is time to spread its newly formed wings, so too are you ready to leave behind what once was and embrace what is more appropriate for you at this time.
There is an element to the journey you are embarking upon that is unknown. Perhaps it is news to you that you are even taking a journey! However, the realization that traveling along a familiar path brings no guarantees, is more likely. This open, unscripted quality to your journey will help you gain the most from your experiences. You see, this journey is a spiritual gift. It is an invitation from the great loving heart of the universe, calling you into something that you would not have otherwise found. You are not supposed to know all the details, nor how it is going to work out, before you set out. You see, this journey is a spiritual gift. It is an invitation from the great loving heart of the universe, calling you into something that you would not have otherwise found. You are not supposed to know all the details, nor how it is going to work out, before you set out. You are just meant to take one step after the other. Again. And again. So that you can receive the gifts that are headed your way.
If you are considering taking a physical trip somewhere, this oracle comes as confirmation that the journey will in some way be a life-changing one and this is good. If the journey you are considering is of a more internal variety – such as exploring a new field of consciousness, beginning a new creative work or traveling into the void of unknown possibilities in order to start your work, – then this oracle is confirmation that it is indeed a wise choice and much new life will come of it.
This oracle brings you particular guidance that the apparently small steps you are taking in an area of your life, important to you right now, are actually far more powerful and constructive than you realize. Sometimes we are gaining ground but the effect is not immediately obvious. This doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. It simply means that the effects of your actions are cumulative and soon they will begin to overflow into the physical world with a positive impact that may surprise you. This oracle brings you the message to keep going. If you have been doing a lot of inner work and are frustrated or concerned that you are not seeing the results translate into the physical world, keep faith, as the physical manifestation of your inner work IS coming. Remember that you have all the resources you need and then some. Your inner and outer journeys are blessed with positive energy and all you need to do is keep going – one step at a time.”
Healing Process: “Say aloud, ‘Of my own free will, I now choose to surrender any fear or doubt about my ability to succeed. I believe in myself. I trust myself. I have faith in the unfolding journeys of my life, both internally and out in the world. Even in the face of the unknown, I know that positive energy surrounds me and I am protected. Through unconditional love, I am supported and assisted to take each step, as needs be, so that my great, creative, life journey can be all that it can be.’
You may like to complete your healing process with a quick dance around the room, feeling joy in your heart and lightness in your step. Just a suggestion!”*

She is completely naked with only her suitcase … the butterflies of transformation escaping to show us that this suitcase is full of hopes and dreams, not old baggage that she has been carrying around. Her nudity signifies total vulnerability and trust, no room for masks here, no room for deception. Her gaze is skyward, and she is surrounded by light, particularly around the head and crown; a symbol of her commitment to receiving and following the Divine Guidance she is receiving from Source. There is a hint of the torus vortex surrounding her, telling us that she is “in the flow” and also that she is at the center of it all, which would indicate that she is calm, centered and balanced despite what may be going on around her.
Everything that you have done to date has culminated in where you are right now in this very moment. This is the tipping point. Another full moon. Another chance to start new. Four months left of this pivotal year. What comes next?
What comes next is what you focus your intention on… right now and moving forward. Change happens; sometimes slowly, one degree at a time; sometimes radically and we are dragged along in the wake of it all. Sometimes we take bold action and charge in to meet it with our head held high. How you wish to create is up to you. What you wish to create is up to you too.
Endings and beginnings and changes and chances and anything is possible here.
Every journey starts with a single step.
