Dream A Beautiful Dream: “The urge to create is the same within you as it is for the universal creator. It also has the same magical ability to draw harmony into being and to find beautiful order in chaos. This includes bringing harmony and the perfect balance of wellbeing into your body, mind and emotions.
This is also the part of you that wants to dream of beauty and bring it to life in as many ways as possible – in how you eat, dress, look, behave, make love, create art, relate to your community, write your poetry by moonlight or bathe by candlelight…
If you have come to believe that your love of beauty is superficial rather than a genuine expression of your heart’s appreciation of symmetry, harmony and grace then you may block your ability to create harmony in your life. You may believe it to be an unworthy goal, Yet beauty – genuine beauty rather than superficial glamour – flows from within. It is an expression of radiance within that heart and a love of life. If you have struggled with the obsessive attitude towards beauty that tends to prevail in human culture, then it is time you look to nature instead. Her beauty is boundless, quirky and endlessly diverse. If you feel blocked, thwarted or contaminated by others in your quest to brings your beautiful dreams to life, you may feel that your heart is dulled, minimized or shut down. Small-mindedness can limit beauty to a very narrow, physical sense. However, you can shun the social disease of superficial, narrow definitions of beauty, thumb your nose at air-brushed images and dare to love what is. Honoring nature is one example. Give yourself permission to feel ad be beautiful in many ways. You can feel harmony outside of what is supposed to be harmonious! If you are brave and wild enough, you can even find beauty and harmony amongst the chaos of change. Sensing that change is just the creative process kicking into gear. Realizing there is nothing to fear brings even greater beauty, harmony, surrender and grace to the experience of life creating itself, in more stunning forms, through you.
You are meant to dream of beauty and to create beauty, in its far more holistic and creative definition. Beauty is meant to soothe the soul, inspire thoughts of love, devotion and appreciation and to balance the nervous system. These are healing effects! Healing for the creator and those that receive it. They are worthwhile. They are not meaningless, impractical, flippant or trivial. A world without the beauty of art, in all its various and unique interpretations, would be a less colourful, less vibrant, less cheeky and less healing place to be. Time that you spend dreaming of beauty and allowing it to be born through you in various heart-centered ways is worthwhile. Do not disregard it or discount it. The most beautiful dreams can inspire the practical hardworking dedication required to bring them to life for the betterment of the world.
This oracle also comes with a particular message you. There is a situation in your life right now where you feel uncertain about your ability to ‘fix’ or heal. You lack the inspiration to be able to imagine it differently than how it currently seems to be. You may therefore feel inhibited in your ability to bring about constructive change. However, the perfect beauty of this situation is not revealed by what you attempt to do to it, or through trying to impose the right ‘dream’ upon it. It is to be healed and perfectly into all that it can be, through the revelation of the beauty that already lies within it. This happens when we accept the existence of inner harmony in all of creation, even if it cannot be consciously observed. By expecting there to e beauty within a situation, even if it is hidden, you will be more open to seeing the healing potential, even in your challenges. Do not attempt to force the situation or issue to take the ‘right’ shape. Instead ask it to show its beauty to you. This might apply to your body, to your relationship, to your finances, to your work situation, a new creative project or anything else. From this place of inquiry you will begin to grasp the creative genius of what is, and unveil not only it potential beauty, but how perfect it is for you at this time, just as it is. In opening up to the beauty within yourself and your circumstances, you also open up to change. What we accept can change most easily, it is when we resist or deny that change slows down and suffering persists.
You can overcome resistance and denial by approaching it with a curious mind, an open heart and the healing process.
By the way, this oracle has come to you because you have the power to be a positive influence in whatever situation holds the most meaning for you right now, and you need to know that.”
Healing Process: “Imagine, visualize or perceive a softly glowing, radiant, golden light within your head. It expands outwards in all directions without losing its radiance or power. Everything it touches, it casts into graceful, beautiful, harmony. Including your mind.
Be with this light. Be at peace and let it happen.
When you are ready, simply open your eyes and say, ‘The perfect harmony of beauty awakens within me and all around me. I serve that golden light in unconditional love and creative power.’
You have finished your healing process.”*

Surround yourself with beauty. The real kind of beauty, not the stuff of plastic faces and starving bodies, not that of flashy things that are obsolete in a matter of weeks or months; but true, unrefined true and natural beauty. The kind of beauty that radiates from the inside out. The kind that brings awe, that uplifts you, and that makes you gaze for longer. Beauty that ignites all of your senses, not just your pocketbook.
The beauty of music, of flowers and trees and insect wings. The magic of the full moon or counting the stars. The smell of your favorite incense or perfume. The taste of your favorite foods. The company of someone who makes your heart beat a little faster… or a lot. The company of someone small who is learning all about the world. Or the company of your closest and best furry companion. That is true beauty. That kind of beauty makes your heart sing, it connects you to your Soul and connects you to the Universe. That kind of beauty lets you step out of the rat race, away from the competition and the lack mentality. Because those things are priceless gifts, irreplaceable.
Surround yourself with the right kind of beauty and you will have what you need to fulfill you. You will have all the love, the light, the peace, the joy and the abundance you always wished for. And to bring you more of this beauty, and faster, fill your heart with gratitude; acknowledging and appreciating all the beauty you are surrounded with now.
