Goddess Durga and Hematite: “Spear of The Guru Mother”
“We bring you the empowerment of spear of the guru mother. Sometimes there is so much choice that we struggle to commit. It is often not an issue of unwillingness to make an effort, but concern that the choice might not be the ‘right’ choice. We might pray to the Universe to be shown what to do according to a wisdom greater than our own. Although our free will is always in place – we are able to accept a task divinely given, or reject it – the Universe answers every prayer. In your heart you have been asking for guidance to be shown what you need to do in a particular situation or, perhaps more generally, in your life at this time. You want to know the best way forward so your actions are in alignment with heaven. In response, you have now become the spear of the guru mother.”
“The Spear of the Guru Mother is the direct, focused and clear task given to you by the fiercely compassionate divine feminine. The guru mother is the unconditionally loving guide who will protect your soul, keeping you on the straight and narrow (spiritually speaking) and ensure that your efforts bring you the best spiritual results and not lead you off onto a distracting and ultimately unnecessary tangent.
Although you can choose whether or not you wish to accept the task, know that it has been divinely bestowed upon you. How do you know which task this is? Look to your life. What’s happening? What’s possible for you to act upon? Where is your growth edge? What are you currently empowered to do? There’s your task. Do what you can and do it now.
The oracle also comes to you with this understanding – if the Divine gives you a task, you can handle it. Even if you are going to need to grow, you have it within to complete it successfully. When the Universe gives you an opportunity or life situation to work through, it is giving you a vote of confidence. The Divine Mother says to you, ‘ Here is my will. I’ll empower you, now go for it!’ If you want to take her advice, don’t hesitate or doubt. Be as focused and forward moving as if you were the spear that she had thrown with her almighty hand and flawless aim, heading straight towards the center of the target.
When the Oracle of Spear of the Guru Mother comes to you, you are being told your efforts have divine power behind them. The situations in your life you are willing to grapple with are going to resolve far more quickly and potently than you might have believed possible. The power of your own efforts, amplified with divine will, creates extraordinary movement. Distraction, procrastination and hesitation shall not touch you. Your focus will be complete and your task shall be attained. The trust you feel in yourself and the Divine will increase because of this. You will gain more confidence in yourself. You will become game for bigger and bolder challenges. The Universe will be able to ask more of you and give you more because you shall be increasingly open to it. The risk you take at this time, with absolute intention, will bring you so much more than resolution of the task at hand.
If you have been overwhelmed, confused, pulled in too many directions and feeling as though you are trying to do everything and completing nothing, this oracle comes with guidance. The spear of the guru mother, if requested, will fly through your life and take you along with it for the ride. The unleashing of divine will shall clear away the inessentials and reveal to you what is important and what you need to do. If you are willing to surrender into this fierce grace, you will be honoured by it. Go into your heart, and if you feel brave and bold enough (you are! you are!), then complete the following healing process to invoke the guru mother’s intervention.”
Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:
I call upon the Crystal Angel of Hematite and Goddess Durga who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing empowerment of the spear of the guru mother. May my actions be true, decisive and pure. May I ground truth through my actions in the world. May the spear of the guru mother enter my life and direct my being into fearless, focused action. May all beings, through unconditional love and divine mercy, be blessed with the clear conscious awareness of divine will. May they be empowered by it to act with fearlessness and joy. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

Synchronicity. Durga was mentioned in yesterday’s card. The day before we were reminded that we are closing the chapter of January and February to embark on the faster pace of March. This is a message of action. Of getting out there and doing. Of making things happen, not just thinking and planning but jumping in and getting your hands dirty.
We are about to be challenged to walk the walk not just talk the talk. It is easy to stay in planning mode forever, thinking and analyzing and doing the research and not really moving forward. Wanting it to be handed to us without putting in any effort what so ever.
Know that you are co-creating here, but you must hold up your end of the bargain. You move forward with focused intention and the Universe meets you there. You choose your direction and step forward boldly and the Universe takes your hand. We are in this together and we are being assisted. We have put so much though and so much feeling and so much agonizing. Now it is time for things to get moving.
Start the ball rolling. Get some momentum. Get in there and DO IT!
