Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the The Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco: Nightsong ~ Hidden Talents

Nightsong ~ Hidden Talents: “A ruby red bird singing In the darkness full of sound like an unopened present ribbons still bound.”

“A bird singing at night is an unusual occurrence and those birds who are know as “singers of the darkness’ are almost always considered sacred – or frightening! From the operatic nightingale through to the hooting owl, hearing a bird that you cannot see weaving its magic through the night sky has captivated humans for millennia.

In the past, at Halloween time, a night that the veil between the worlds was said to be at its thinnest, these night birds were considered either omens or messengers of the gods. Depending on the culture, their voices were perceived as good luck and a positive validation or alternatively a warning about continuing on a certain pathway. In some mythology the night bird was able to direct us towards discovering our talents and true purpose – a kind of guide in the darkness leading us to the dawn.

Should this beautiful but shy bird sing to you by appearing during your divination, know that you must unwrap the present of yourself. Look! Some of the gifts within you remain unopened! The time has come to step into your true potential and claim all possibilities for yourself. There is no more time to waste. No more excuses!”*

– Stacey Demarco

Deeply hidden or previously denied gifts are emerging; it is time to go beyond accepting and embrace the true authentic you. If you have been shy or holding back on your true talents; treating them unattainable or as mere daydreams, things are about to change. If you are reading this and thinking that you have no hidden talents, or that you don’t feel talented, you have some work to do! FindingĀ  your hidden talents is as easy as spending some time in quiet, uninterrupted, meditation and contemplation.

Ask your guides to assist you in your quest, they will be more than happy to oblige. When you ask your guides for help in this matter, resolve to remain open and aware to the messages, synchronicities and signs that will come to you after. The answers may come to you through repetitive thoughts, through a relevant TV show, a song, poem or flyer, your dreams, a suggestion or invitation from a friend, or a song on the radio. It will be something that catches your attention, sticks with you, and makes you think. When this happens, it is time to act!

If your hidden talent is something that you are not familiar with to start, take a class, workshop or course! This is a great way to meet new people and also to find alternate ways to branch out. I have often signed up for classes only to find that I knew most of what they were teaching, but yet took away the jewels of a new friendship, a direction to proceed in and a line on where to find the next step! You have nothing to lose by signing up for something new, if nothing else, it will broaden your horizons and teach you about what you don’t want to pursue! Have fun with it!

Namaste

The Hierophant

The Hierophant: “I would like a story,” says the salamander to the Hierophant.

“And what would you like to hear, little one?” The words come slowly. Each syllable seems to be drawn from deep within, pulled up from an individual rootlet. The salamander is used to it, and patient.

“I want to hear how I may fly. I was content. And then one day, my friend Caterpillar said he was sleepy. He slept for a long time, until I nearly forgot about him – until yesterday. A moth came to laugh at me. He laughed with Caterpillar’s laugh, and with Caterpillar’s voice he said he had had a dream of wings.”

“Ah.” The sonorous exhalation seems to go on forever. “Ah, little one; I am sorry. Caterpillar has that blessing. He may sleep and dream of flight. He weaves a silken ritual around his body, and then comes the day when that vision transforms him. You…”

“I wish to dream of flight too!” says Salamander, very seriously.

“You may dream of it, ” says his friend and teacher. “I will not be the one to deny you divinity. But just know that your own divinity shall be attained along a different path than Caterpillar’s. Do not relinquish your dream, Salamander.”

Meaning Of The Card: “The Hierophant’s roots reach deep, entwined around secrets and traditions and the ages. He believes in ritual and ceremony, in pursuing knowledge and deeper meaning, and in the rigidity of a belief system. He elucidates the spiritual and brings it to the earthly plane. He is calm and in possession of himself, and he is the teacher who can help unravel mysteries.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

We each have our own unique destiny. Our own gifts to discover and share. Our own way of being in the world.

Sometimes these gifts lie undiscovered for longer than necessary as we strive to be someone we clearly are not. Hoping, wishing and praying to be inside someone else’s skin… living someone else’s life as if it is our own. Comparison… the greatest distraction of all time. The fastest way to get off track. Often a clear path to feelings of hopelessness, envy, and disillusion… or worse, superiority.

There’s a reason why you came where you came to in this lifetime on this planet at this particular time. A reason for looking how you look, knowing what you know and possessing the special skills that are unique to you. It’s no mistake that you are who you are.

The mistake is not owning it. Not relishing it. Not diving into it with all you’ve got.

Not that we are encouraged to do this in our society. Nope, quite the opposite actually. We are led to believe there is a hierarchy. Some people are “better” because of what they own or what they look like or how their bodies… (or occasionally even how their brains) work. They are celebrated… celebrities right? We are taught to dress a certain way (fashionable, whatever that may mean), look a certain way (young and buff generally). Blend into society unless we can be the 1% that stands out.

But alas, as the world shifts of course all that is changing. Already doesn’t it feel so superficial you can hardly stand it? Good. That’s a start.

So what’s so special about you? Well everything, don’t you agree? Not special in a superior way, special in an “Of Service” kind of way. A stand on your own and be you kind of way.

Embrace that. Embody it. Stop trying to be what you are not, and put everything into what you are. From the very center of your being.

Your heart.

The Merlin

The Merlin, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Merlin, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Merlin: “Alchemy ~ Justice ~ Balance”

The Messengers Of Avalon

“The Merlin is the messenger of initiation and alchemy and is both the Magician and the High Priest. He is the masculine keeper of magic and has the ability to turn iron ore into gold. The Merlin says, “You have all you need to move forward. Rejoice that all the elements you require for success are, indeed, present!”

You are given notice that, when it comes to your life and its purpose, the magical aspect of the Merlin can be summoned to help you find an answer that is within you. When the Merlin appears, he tells you that justice will be done in all matters of your query, but not by any forceful action. Instead, ask yourself what you need to do to bring balance into your life. Are you working too hard, perhaps overthinking things? Do you have enough downtime?

The answers you seek are not found in obvious places. It is time to go within, through meditation and prayer, and ask the Spirit world of the Merlin’s magical influence to send you signs and omens to help you chart your course. The Merlin says that he will lend you his wisdom and magic on this leg of your journey, until you can claim it as your own.

His message is always: “be in the world, but not of it, and wear it only as a loose cloak about your shoulders.” You will never have to look outside yourself for answers when the Merlin appears. Remember, all signs and omens sent by the Merlin are but reflections of that which is within you already.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

As the planet shifts, we all shift with her. We are opening ourselves up to more love; more light. Healing. Simplicity. Possibility. Truth. Authenticity. Peace. Compassion. Trust.

We will start to see things from a Soul level, rather than just at face, or surface, value. We will connect deeply with each and every living being, seeing the eternal Divine light within. We will see all as equal, all as valuable, all as worthy. We will cherish this connection, and it will become much more important than the previous emphasis on the material.

This deep connection will create profound joy and fulfillment; spreading slowly but surely around the planet. Filling us with calm knowing; Divine Wisdom. Finally, the peace we have been seeking is found deep within, where it has always been waiting to be discovered.

Connect to The Merlin and connect to your infinite Universal Wisdom. Your own magical Soul self. Know that you too are the alchemist of your own life; able to turn iron to gold with the intention for deep profound change. When The Merlin works with you, look to the elements for signs. They are in the howling of the wind, the twinkling of the stars, the shape-shifting clouds, the crashing of the waves and the undulating of the trees. They are in the sounds in the forest, the babbling of the creek and the swoosh of the ravens wings.

Milky Way

Published September 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

milky way perspective

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Milky Way ~ Perspective

Milky Way ~ Perspective: “The Milky Way is said to be one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe. It contains between 200 to 400 billion stars, the one most famous to us being the Sun. The oldest star in our galaxy is 13.2 billion years old – said to be nearly as old as the universe itself – and the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old. Distances are measured in light-years, and the Milky Way galaxy is believed to be 100,000 light-years in diameter. The enormity and vastness stagger the mind and challenge the imagination, yet, it also gives us some notion of where we fit in all this.

Considered from this perspective, our usual frame of reference is put to the task. We are faced with a choice of abandoning our myopic vision in favor of seeing and accepting the bigger picture, or we can just allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by a sense of smallness and helplessness. Yet know that we are composed of material from those very stars that inhabit the Milky Way. Thus, we are connected to Earth and the entire universe at all times, in life and in death.

You have lost your perspective, so it is time to step back, breathe, and allow yourself to detach in order to gather information from you senses and regain you perspective about the situation. Detachment does not mean that you no longer care – it simply indicates that you are looking at things from a different point of view. It is an outlook that is not clouded by emotions, judgement, or attachment to outcome, but instead maintains a nonreactive awareness of these things.

The Witness, that internal aspect of yourself that simply observes everything in your life, offers his or her eyes here. Through these lenses of pure awareness, you can examine all aspects of your experiences – physical, emotional, and mental – without denying anything. By doing so, you will come to understand a greater perspective than is typically justified by the ego, which allows you to see what is before you with clear vision and an open mind.”*

What is the fastest way to change your reality? Change your perspective. But how do you go about changing your perspective? Well, you need to stretch your brain in a way that it hasn’t been stretched before. Learn something new, something mind blowing that you never thought of before. Master something you never in a million years thought you could do. Travel, see how other people in the world live their lives (as authentically as possible, so Disneyland may not be your best option!). Go somewhere you have never been in your own home town. Branch out to meet new people; welcome positive and supportive people into your life. Take a step back from your routines, from your rut, from your complacency, from your electronics. Get outside to communicate with Gaia and ask her to help you really feel ALIVE again. Move the furniture around in your house, Feng Shui and redecorate a little or a lot. Invite people over for a dinner party that you have never socialized with. Check out a new Church. Volunteer or get a new job.

There are options, but you have to be willing to see them. It takes strength and courage to step out of your comfort zone and actually get out there and do it. When you step away from the drama of your own issues, you gain a new perspective. When you see the world with a broader vision, you realize that we are all connected, no one is alone and we are all full of infinite love and possibility. Take this opportunity to see the patterns and where they come from. Ask for help in changing them to create harmony and balance in your life. Cut the cords to unnecessary relationship strains on your energy.

Seek love and acceptance for every issue you are facing. When you find that love inside you, your perspective on everything changes. See the unconditional love and beauty inside yourself and radiate it out around the world; and watch that love transform those around you, recreating your reality.

The Devil

Published September 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Devil, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Devil, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

The Devil: “She feels the walls closing in on her, oblivious to the fact that she is not completely surrounded – there is the wide world open to either side! The skies cry with songs of beauty and freedom, but she tucks her head down to hide in fear, bound within walls and shackles, though it is only a thin thread that binds her, red as her hert’s blood, and the key is so close, so close. Look up! You wish to cry at her. Raise your eyes and look around you!

But her ears are deaf to any voice but that of the Devil. All she hears and feels is the Devil dancing above her, diving her, goading her, pressing down upon her. Tap tap tap goes the dancing of his hooves in a merry, mocking rhythm. Tap tap tap in the seductive patterns of entrapment of the willing. Tap tap tap he dances, and he laughs with the knowledge that it is with such ease he can hold a vibrant spirit captive.

Look up! Faintly, the voice pierces through the stones and seeps up into her body, and she reaches out.”

Meaning Of The Devil Card: “Losing independence, addiction and enslavement, caught up on the material realm, overindulgence, choosing to stay in the dark, pleasures, lust and desire. Feeling hopelessness close in and limit the options. The Devil plays on your desires with a masterful touch. Break free from the puppeteer’s strings by looking beyond the material blockades and temptations.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Swap out the devil for the ego; the busy, worrying, doubting, limiting mind. Holding the heart hostage, as per usual. Doing a dance of victory over your head after scaring you out of following your dreams.

Maybe you just feel like giving up. I know I feel like that sometimes… sometimes or possibly more often than I’d might like to admit.

This ascension process, it’s not easy. There is so much coming up that needs to be cleared, released, transformed and transmuted. It can be exhausting. I am no better at it than anyone else, no higher or lower. Just processing it one day at a time like you are. There is no need for a guru to take you through the process, for we all end up at the same place in the end, traveling the path as only we can. We can ask for assistance or advice, and then we can decide whether or not it resonates with us. That’s the great thing about good will.

But there are an abundance of gurus out there right now. Many cashing in on the process of leading you through it. Beware of all that. Tune inwards instead. It’s free and readily available. Trust yourself.

Stand up and brush yourself off. Then take back your heart. Decide to listen to it from now on; it will guide you like no other. Yes, you will still make mistakes, and you will still get hurt every now and then, particularly if you choose not to listen closely to it’s whispers.

But know that your body is fully equipt to lead you on. You have everything you need to get there. No one else can do it for you. No one else can take it away from you either. You make your choices. You read what you want and take of it what seems real and right to you. You set your intentions for the highest good of All. You use your heart center to weight your options. You banish the fear and take the chances.

It’s all you.

Kick that Devil right out of the picture.

There’s not trap, it’s all an illusion.

Spread your wings. Put your crown back on where it belongs.

You got this.

Namaste

Archangel Michael ~ Protection

Published September 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Michael ~ Protection, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Maroony

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Archangel Michael ~ Protection, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Maroony

Archangel Michael ~ Protection:

“For He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways.”
~ Psalms 91:11

“Archangel Michael is dedicated to the preservation of the spiritual destiny of every soul. He loves you with an intensity you cannot yet imagine as he patiently watches you, life after life, fanning the flickering embers of your soul fire on the altar of your heart, until the flame of enthusiasm and love of God burn brightly enough to consume your limitations and set you free!

As the Great Prince, Michael’s territory includes all who know that our kingdom is not of this Earth. To guide us Home, he is consecrated to attacking the evil within while challenging us to transmute negative energy into positive channels of peace, love and beauty. If the importance of your spiritual path is constantly expanding, you are working with the energy of Michael.

Michael’s ‘fire’ is much more than just an expression. The spiritual aspirant is literally burning away self-imposed limitations that surface as pockets of emotion triggered by the events of life. When you face the truth, you often feel the heat and burning of this fire. For example, the passion of anger can become an effective force for change. Accept it and feel hot, enraged, empowered! As you open your heart, the rage id transformed allowing you to seek loving solutions. Michael watches over the expansion of your soul light until you have purified yourself of karma and limitations. Each time you use opportunities to transform unwanted events, you destroy more of your false ego or small self. Michael lives for the day when you step free as your Eternal Self. His goal is the salvation of us all to once more become a loving community.

In addition to protecting our spiritual destiny, Michael also protects our bodies. Call Michael to be your champion in adverse situations, to give you courage and protection. At your final passing, Michael weighs your soul. The love-essence that you have gathered whirls up to Heaven, light as a feather, while the heavily laden ego falls. This ego draws you back for life after life until you are ready to face Michaels’ fire of transformation. If you seek freedom from rebirth, do not wait until the time of your death. Call for Michael now to guide you toward the awareness of your Eternal Self.”*

Music: “Palestina, Missa Papae Marcelli, Steel Bars”

~ By Kimberly Marooney

When I feel like I need extra protection I invoke this most powerful and awe inspiring Archangel. Michael is always willing to assist, blazing sword in hand. To me he is enormous, taller than the trees, a massive presence that fills my space with peace, strength and security. I ask him to clear my house, dissolving any cords between myself and others that are not of the Light. I ask that he purges myself, my space, my home and property with his violet vacuum, removing every particle of low vibrational or dense energies. He swiftly removes any hooks, cords, entities, attachments or implants from myself, my space and property, and by the grace of God and Source Energy, from my children, pets and family. He then purifies our auras, filling any holes or spaces with pure white light. Lastly he casts a protective shield or cloak around us all, including our space and right out to the edges of our property. I also ask him to place mobile shields around us for when we leave the safety and security of our high vibrational living space.

I ask this of Archangel Michael now; for myself and my family, today and every day to be purified, protected and shielded. And every time I ask it is done, with Unconditional Love. I am eternally grateful for the security this gives me; the peace of mind. Knowing that I am not vulnerable to the low vibrational energies and entities that may try to latch onto me or my loved ones. I know that I am always safe, always protected.

As are you. All you need to do is ask.

Thank you, Archangel Michael for watching over me today and every day. Keeping me and my loved ones and my home and property safe and protected. I am eternally grateful for your Love.

And so it is

And just for fun, one of my favourite depictions of Archangel Michael by artist Corey Wolfe:

Fearn Alder

Published September 14, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Fearn Alder, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fearn Alder, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Fearn Alder: “Northern Hemisphere Dates: December 27th-January 23rd. Southern Hemisphere Dates: June 27th – July 23rd.
Totems: “Kingfisher, Raven, Wren, Dragon”
Deities/Guides: “Bran adn Branwen of Welsh Mythology, Merlin”
Letters: F, V and GW”
Class: “Chieftain”
3rd Lunation”

Keywords: “Guidance, prophecy and divination, strength in a dispute or battle, spiritual protection, balance between the masculine and feminine energies.”

“The Fearn Alder initiates in the third lunation and represents guidance and initiative. This tree also represents leadership, power, and strength. If you need backbone in a dispute, this tree offers you strength and resolve as well as protection. Alder holds both male and female powers and shows us how to balance these aspects within us. Alder encourages us to seek the oracle to help us update our intentions and assert our plans. We set these renewed intentions for a new solar year. There is a quality of self-sacrifice for the good of the community, with this tree. The ogham for Alder is Fearn and the letters F, V and GW.”

Fearn Alder In A Reading: “Alder is especially connected to prophecy. Alder reminds you of your bird and animal totems, as well as your guardian spirits and allies, and asks you to listen to their messages. When this tree appears in a reading, reconnect to your own ancestors or spiritual lineages for guidance, information and support. Be alert to synchronicities in your daily life. Look to your dreams and record their wisdom. (If you set this intention they will inform you.) It may also be a time to use your divination tools or consult a trusted friend or psychic. What does your intuition tell you? What does your gut say?

If you are involved in a dispute or conflict, this tree offers you spiritual strength and protection. Alder possesses a strong male energy that offers you backbone and strength. Alder provides a bridge over troubled waters.

When you get Alder, you are asked to address your balance of masculine and feminine energies. What is the best use of these energies? Perhaps you are being overly assertive or aggressive. Or perhaps you are being too passive or dependent upon others right now, and giving away your power. Alder asks you to work from your own inner sense of authority. Trust your feelings, thoughts, and visions. Fearn Alder offers you support as you delve into your own inner knowing.

Alternatively, you may not be listening to others. Is it possible you are being too ruthless and ignoring ethical considerations? Either way, Fearn Alder invites you to return o the middle path and create a more balanced life. You have help and are never alone.”

As Challenger: “You may be too dependent upon either your masculine or feminine role or energy. Rowan asks you to address any imbalances in this area. Remember, you are not confined to any role. You have full choice in how your create your life.

You may be denying access to spiritual messages and guidance. Perhaps you are ignoring the fact that you require help and healing. Check in and see if you are being overly resistant. Help is available, but you must ask for it before your guides can come forward. They need your permission to assist you.

Similarly, you may be unaware of your need for protection, especially within a situation that involves a dispute or controversy. All that is needed is for you to invite your spirit helpers’ protection and guidance, and they will come forward for you.”*

~ By Sharlyn Hidalgo

Fearn Alder comes to us as support, and as a reminder that not only are we much stronger than we give ourselves credit for, we are also never alone. We are being asked to reconnect to a higher collective consciousness. One of strength of each individual coming together to create a brand new whole. Like a strong and self reliant wolf joining a wolf pack; finding our tribe. It is trusting our instincts and intuition and accepting help when we need it. It is also about walking away from those who do not hold our highest good, knowing that the Universe will send along those who truly do.

There is also protection here. If you are feeling vulnerable, separated or alone, know that this is just an illusion; a frame of mind that needs to be released along with any other belief systems that keep you from feeling like you belong. We all belong. When we release judgment, of ourselves and others, we can find peace, harmony and balance within. When we find this within ourselves, we see it in our external world. You are protected; know it is so.

Stand your ground. Ask for assistance when you need it. Take care of yourself without guilt or shame. Expand your social circle; your tribe is looking for you as you seek them. Soul family reunions is imminent. Embrace it.

Namaste

Dee
