Daily Angel Oracle Card: Manifestation, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark artwork by Louis Dyer
Manifestation: “Release control. Evaluate your priorities.”
“The wizard is a symbol of magic and manifestation whose power is activated harmoniously through the mind and the heart. Bridging humanity with the world of spirit, the wizard borrows the power of the universe to direct and enhance energy to a specific task, healing or outcome.
A wise wizard is loving, spontaneous and transparent. With intelligence and an open heart, the wizard is able to help all people, himself included. The wizard does this by harnessing the power that is all around him. Without expectation, the wizard allows the beauty of magic to come through him rather than trying to control and manipulate it. An open and trusting heart is a refined tool of perception.
Right now you have the power to manifest your dreams into reality. With pure thoughts and intention, you can create magic in the world around you. Allowing energy to flow through you with ease and with purpose, you can create a magical life. Learn to share your natural gifts with others. You are here to help humanity in a positive way. Refrain from sharing your personal intentions, now, as they will be easily influenced with other’s distorted energy.
You have the power to create and shine your light upon the world! Examine your thought patterns and energy and amplify your intentions. Positive thought and creativity will bring you closer to your goals, one step at a time. Intentions are everything right now! Focus your attention on seeing the magic in all things including the beauty residing in the darkness. Look towards the stars for guidance. Astrological influences are high now.
Manifest the power of energetic thought and investigate alchemic practices. This will assist you in understanding natural systems such as the elements, nature, medicine, astrology and life’s synchronicities. With the right mindset, you can create and manifest anything!”
Affirmation: “I AM a conscious creator of the energy around me. My heart and mind are unified in spirit.”*

…. so, I wrote a special message for today. But I have wiped it out for something more important to me, I hope you don’t mind. I feel like I need to share something else. Yesterday (well to be completely honest, today as I am writing this in advance as usual…) I was triggered. And I need to get this off my chest.
Someone told me that they feel like my posts are repetitive, inauthentic, cliche (It was even suggested that I don’t actually read what I write. Yes, I know there are typos, I haven’t taken a typing class since grade 7! It is not my strong point, I thought being that it’s free no one would really mind)…. and the very worst part…that I’m coming off as a guru… Which is pretty much the opposite of everything I have worked for. So it hit me pretty hard to be completely honest. I could dismiss it, but I am sensitive and I am also aware that if it triggers me, and I feel defensive and take it personally, that there must be some fear in there too. I feel like I need to explain my reason for doing this so that everyone understands. Even though I know I don’t actually need to. But I’m human so please hear me out.
So here goes.
I started this blog because I wanted to be of service. I was told right at the beginning, by three people I knew, that no one would read it. I wrote it anyway. I figured that I like writing and I want to help people and what better way to try help wake everyone up to a more spiritual existence, including myself. I wanted to do what no one else was doing at the time… write every day. I use the cards to give me direction, and a visual cue. (I buy hundreds of dollars worth of cards and about six months ago when I was lamenting the cost of the cards and the site itself a friend offered to put a donation button on it for me to help offset costs. It’s definitely helped and I am so very grateful). I kept writing.
I want to keep writing. But I do not want to be a guru. I see a guru as someone who is trying to sell you a way of being in the world that matches their own belief system. It involves a hierarchy, a scheme that you have to buy into. It’s ego based and it generally revolves around money and fame and them being somehow higher up than anyone else in the overall picture. Usually with a bunch of rules you have to live by, or lifestyle choices that you would be judged harshly for not living up to. I am a work in progress. I’m learning as I write this, along with anyone who chooses to read it. I mean to be as authentic as I can, whether I pull it off effectively every day or not. My apologies when I don’t. The messages are often repetitive because, unfortunately, humans don’t necessarily read something once, go make all the necessary changes and immediately move forward with their lives. I’m assuming if they did, they wouldn’t bother reading what I write, they wouldn’t need it. It took me five years to make big and very necessary yet totally terrifying changes in my own life. I needed to work up to it. Maybe it will take someone else less. Maybe I can help to inspire and motivate them. Ideally, Empower them. Or maybe they will do it on their own time regardless of what I write, and maybe I don’t want that kind of pressure anyway.
I cannot guarantee that I will never ever monetize my work, I may need to at some point, but it isn’t my main concern and hasn’t been for the last 4 years or so that I’ve been doing this. I have other ways of making enough money to get by and I am working on my abundance and prosperity, just like you probably are, we are all in this together. If I do go that way one day, I will try to always make sure I offer something complimentary to be of service and try to be as accessible as I am able to be. I already have two other businesses, hair and jewelry. I do hair to support myself and my kids and I do the jewelry for the healing and metaphysical properties of the stones in hopes of helping people to heal, body, mind and spirit. Between the two jobs and the two kids with school and sports and hobbies and play dates, and four pets, we are pretty busy over here. But I make time to write. I take it as seriously as a paid job.
It is not surprising that all this has come up now. It is also not surprising that I’m feeling emotional and on edge with all this lunar madness! We are supposed to be feeling this way, it’s part of the purging, the letting go of the need to try and control. Centering into the heart and letting go of the ego, the self-doubt, the worry and the fear. Breaking down boundaries and limitations. Having faith that you can keep doing what you are doing with love and somehow that it will all work out. That people will see, feel and honour the real, authentic You.
That you are just doing your best with what you have to offer.
So let’s embrace this madness. The Super Blue Moon with a lunar eclipse something that hasn’t happened in our sky for 150 years. How are YOU feeling today? Are you a little off kilter? Did something blindside you? How are you handling it all? It’s a bit of a roller coaster isn’t it!
“Magic and Manifestation; Borrow the power of the Universe to direct and enhance energy to a specific task, healing or outcome…You have the power to manifest your dreams into reality… With pure thoughts and intention you can create magic in the world around you… Intentions are everything right now! Astrological influences are high now. .. With the right mindset you can create and manifest anything!”
So let us collectively let all that old crap GO! All the fear and doubt and worry and anything that is limiting us or holding us back. Including the judgment or opinions of others. Let it all go.
Let’s use this energy to make some positive and lasting changes, even if they are simply shifts in how we see ourselves in the world.
What do you wish to create? It is a question worth repeating every single day, as it brings our awareness to how powerful we really are in creating our reality. In taking responsibility for it. It is an answer that could change, and we must be focused in order to manifest our dreams.
Take this crazy energy and use it to move forward fearlessly. Create with clarity and intention. This is your chance, your window of opportunity. A portal.
Use it wisely.
Thank you for your support and thank you for listening.
