Odysseus: “The Journey”

The Myth: “Odysseus was a hero of great wit and intelligence. It was his idea to penetrate the walls of Troy by giving the Trojans a large wooden horse (eventually known as the Trojan Horse) that carried a band of Greek soldiers within it.

After the Trojan War, Odysseus made his way home to Ithaca. While stopping over at an island, he managed to outsmart the Cyclops Polyphemus. Polyphemus, full of rage, asked his father, Poseidon, to never allow Odysseus to reach his home. Poseidon did all he could to prevent Odysseus’s safe arrival, although Odysseus eventually returned to Ithaca. Homer chronicled Odysseus’s long and arduous journey in The Odyssey.”

The Message: “If you have been working toward achieving a considerable goal, this card assures you that you can do it. There will be many challenges along your way. Distractions, temptations, and battles are inevitable in every hero’s quest, but only those willing to face the dangers and defeat the monsters experience victory. Those who don’t get distracted or give up when the journey gets too rough, those who face every challenge head on, will assuredly reach their goals. Decide today to be that person. Have heart and courage. Be heroic.

Odysseus fought a ten year battle at Troy and took another ten years to fight his way back home, but he eventually accomplished the seemingly impossible. Yet it was not the accomplished task that made Odysseus great – it was the journey itself.

This card signals victory. Stay true to your heart and vision now, for you have the power to create and achieve great things. Embrace your journey, both the challenges and the joys of it, and stay true to your heart’s desire. Magnificent things are possible now!”*

~ By Carisa Mellado

It is very important to stay your course now. Let nothing distract, discourage or defeat you. There may be challenges ahead, but know that they are manageable and that you have the strength and resources to accomplish your goal. Do not let anyone talk you out of your dreams, especially your own fear! We can be our own worst enemies when things are not going smoothly, and we can give up just before we make a major breakthrough. Take this message as a sign that you are on the right track, and perseverance is key.

Action comes in many forms, and forward momentum starts from within. Self-belief and conviction are important now, so do not give up on yourself, know that you have got this. Be careful who you confide in at this time, well-meaning or not, other’s fears can throw you off-balance with their doubt and you must preserve your energy. If you feel like you need advice go to someone who inspires and uplifts you; someone who has beaten the odds and succeeded in the area you are pursuing. Do not take advice from someone who is stuck themselves! Think of negativity and fear as the Trojan horse, coming in stealthily to steal your victory and joy. Be vigilant and only allow clarity, focus and positive intention.

Victory is yours and it will come in more than just the goal achieved. It will come in the mindset that you will have access to once you realize just how capable you are. Although you may be settled on one main goal, this will turn out only to be a stepping stone on a powerful journey of self-discovery and expansion. Embrace the journey as much as the destination, for what you learn along the way will be invaluable and transform the way you see the world and your place in it.

Namaste

Gut Instincts

Published April 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Gut Instincts, from the Chakra Insights Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gut Instincts, from the Chakra Insights Oracle Card deck, by  Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Gut Instincts: “Intuition. Knowing. Sensing. Trust.”

“In the center of your being is a quiet space of inner knowing. Still your mind so you can connect with the call of your instincts.”

Card Story: “Calm and poised, the lion knows who he is. He responds from the purest form of confidence – a deep sense of knowing. He knows where water is. He knows where to find food. He knows how to go to keep his family safe. He knows when it is time to rest, to play, to sneak, and to run. He does all this without thinking. Without doubt, question or hesitation. The lion is pure wisdom in action because he follows the moment to moment inner pulse of his being and the undeniable call of his instincts.”

Card Message: “Our gut instincts are our soul’s way of communicating and guiding us on the path of life. While our minds produce thoughts and rational interpretation of our experience, our instincts connect to a more sensitive, intuitive wisdom that often communicates through physical sensations in our bodies.  This quiet nudge is our inner knowing, our connection with the Universe. It is always there if we stop to sense it. Do we follow its wisdom?

This card is a call to trust the inner feeling of your own gut instincts. The part of you that may not always seem logical or rational but nudges you with whispered guidance of what is right and true. Bring awareness to your feelings and physical sensations. Notice what happens when you act on your feelings… and when you go against them.

It is time to value the knowing wisdom of your ‘gut instincts’ more in your daily life. To pause for a moment before making purely mental decisions, and check in with the quiet inner voice of your body. The more you tune in to this aspect of your being, the more clearly it will speak to you and the more powerfully you will know how to respond.

Practice this in simple ways, as you travel through your day, allowing yourself to follow your instincts as you journey. Turn left when you feel to, even if you normally go right… go for a walk when the path calls, even if you think you do not have time to do so. You may not know at the time why, but by learning to trust these inner promptings, you will notice that life begins to flow more smoothly and you naturally find yourself in the right place at the right time doing the right thing… a lot more often!

Trust your intuition… and have the ‘guts’ to act on it!”

~ By Caryn Sangster

Where in your life are you living out of alignment? Where are  you compromising? Where are you refusing to listen to your intuition, ignoring the voice of your Soul speaking to you?

Maybe it is out of fear. Fear of change, fear of rocking the boat. Fear of losing what you have, facing something new; or of getting out of your comfort zone.

Your intuition is one of your most powerful tools for guiding you through life. It can tell you if a person, situation or opportunity is for you, or too good to be true. It can tell you if something is not quite right and to slow down and pay closer attention. It can lead you forward or stop you in your tracks. And it is never wrong if you learn to tap into it and heed it’s wisdom.

Are you listening to your intuition? Are you using it as your GPS to guide you? Are you tuning in and really feeling it?

When you feel wary, there is usually a reason. Often it is your intuition telling you that someone is wearing a mask. They may not even be aware of their mask, maybe they have been wearing it for so long that they believe it to be their true face. Maybe you enter into a situation that suddenly doesn’t feel right and you aren’t quite sure why you feel it. Or maybe you are talking to someone and you get a few red flags, but you really want to ignore them because you don’t want to see the truth. Whatever it is, if you commit to listening and following your instincts, it will save you a lot of time and energy… and often money and heartbreak.

Learn to trust yourself. Stand in your power. Find your strength, courage and confidence. Make decisions that are for your Highest Good and the Highest Good of All involved. And do not ignore it when your intuition tells you to turn the other way.

Magenta Dragon

Magenta Dragon, from the Dragon Oracle Cards, by Diana Cooper, artwork by Carla Lee Morrow

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Magenta Dragon, from the Dragon Oracle Cards, by Diana Cooper, artwork by Carla Lee Morrow

Magenta Dragon: “Enables you to bring forward your soul wisdom.”

“Awaken your soul memories and higher spiritual understanding. Prepare for accelerated ascension.”

About Magenta Dragon: “Glorious fifth dimensional magenta dragons accompany us on our eternal soul journey as we experience and learn from all the universes, plans and dimensions. As they travel with us, they remind us that we are immensely wise and learned beings with so much to offer. Because we have gone through the Veils of Amnesia, we have forgotten who we truly are.

As soon as magenta dragons connect with us, they prepare us to remember our unique role in this universe. They place us in an extraordinary deep pink flame of love, higher spiritual understanding and wisdom.

They work with Archangel Mariel, who is in charge of the soul star chakras of humanity. The dragons prepare the way so that the archangel can wake us up at a deep soul level. Once we have woken, we can never see ourselves in the same way again. We recognize who we truly are and bring forward our soul wisdom.”

Guidance from Magenta Dragon: “This is a card of accelerated ascension. A magenta dragon is here to remind you that you are an illumined soul carrying much wisdom. It is helping you to dissolve any remaining veils of illusion and preparing you to become an enlightened one. It has come to you now to remind you that all is love, for we are a ll One. It is time to see all things with the wise inner eyes of truth. Treat everyone as if they were you.

Your guidance is to sit quietly with your magenta dragon and allow the door to your vast soul memories to open up. When you reveal to yourself who you truly are, you will help to bring forward the new Golden Age.”*

~ By Diana Cooper

Ah the Veils of Amnesia. Our chance at complete isolation. By far the most challenging of tests; finding our way back to the Light. Finding a way to love ourselves as we are. Finding the support and resources we crave within ourselves. Seeing through the dense illusion to the Truth. All while feeling alone and forgotten, disconnected and separated. Which, of course, is exactly why we came here. To experience just that.

Remember? Maybe an inkling, a nagging feeling, a deja vu? A tugging at your heart that something is not right in the world. Things are not going as they should. We are missing something HUGE here. And time is ticking away as we live our lives amidst the chaos and destruction that we came here to change.

So how do we change it? How do we wake up, dissolve the veil and remember? It takes work, just like anything else. Commitment and dedication. A refusal to take things at face value. A turning away from much of what we are taught. Hard but doable. And vital at this point.

Readjusting our priorities from consumption and collection of the material to a simpler, much more harmonious existence. Working together. Putting health first; our own, the planet and all it’s inhabitants. Seeing the connection between all living things. Reaching out. Helping. Accepting. Loving. Respecting.

We seem to have a long way to go.

We are taught that one person cannot make a difference. That we must fight for what we want. That others may take what is ours; that we need to be vigilant, protective, violent if necessary. We live in fear. We are taught to feel powerless. These are the first illusions to be shattered.

Shatter them and see what is on the other side. See how powerful we are, individually and collectively. Know that we can make a difference.

Namaste

Three Of Scrolls

Published April 8, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Scrolls, from the Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Scrolls, from the Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

Three Of Scrolls: “Setting Your Course”

“The captain of a ship stands on the forward bridge, surveying the horizons through a telescope. Two officers nearby refer to an unrolled chart. A rainbow colors the sky.

This is a great time to broaden your horizons in both your personal and business lives. Do not limit yourself to only one direction. Your opportunities are greater than just what you see. When you widen your scope, you will find your way to limitless options and boundless wealth.

This card can also show a potential partnership or affiliation among three people who can be helpful on your path. Travel or relocation may be on the agenda too.”

As Challenger: “You may not be looking as far ahead as you can go, or perhaps you are not giving yourself the freedom to move forward. Try to break the habit of holding yourself back. There may be miscommunication in some project or friendship, or a person may be misleading in some project or friendship, or a person may be misleading you or not pulling his weight. A small partnership or affiliation could be breaking up entirely. Plans for a trip or a move may also be changed or canceled.”

Special Note: “The captain’s telescope shows the way to more information in a neighboring card. Whether upright or reversed, the card to which the telescope points reveals the supporting influences or obstacles as you chart your course. That card may also provide insight into events, people in your partnerships, and even travel or relocation plans. So let the telescope give you a closer look.”

Akashic Force: “Imagine you are a ship upon the sea. The wind has filled your sails and you cut through the water with ease. Feel the exhilaration of boundless freedom and the assurance of going wherever your will drives you. Where are you headed?”*

~ By Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

It is time to broaden the scope of our dreams. We are so careful when we are setting our intentions, we are afraid to ask too much. Afraid that things may not go the way we wish and afraid that we may have to feel the pain of rejection, abandonment or failure. So much so that we set our goals with glass ceilings; with built in limits and parameters that make us feel better, like we are not asking too much.

But right now opportunity is coming and it is up to us to take it. It is up to each of us to reach farther than we have reached before. To create something bigger than we though possible. To expand into an idea and really run with it.

Team work may play a role here too. Finding the perfect partner or partners, whether it be for personal or business. A collection of skills working together. Supporting each other. Bringing out the best. Brainstorming. Pooling resources.

Open up to it. Learn to trust again. Be discerning but be receptive too. You can’t do it all alone and you won’t have to much longer.

Namaste

Red Jasper

Red Jasper, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Red Jasper, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Red Jasper: “Healthy Boundaries”

Crystal Colour: “Red”
Related Chakras: “Base”

Crystal Medicine: “Red Jasper is an ancient stone utilized in ceremonies and rituals for protection, purification, and to facilitate a deeper connection to the Earth. When you embark on a journey to connect with this sacred stone, you will start to awaken to the wisdom and knowledge of healthy boundaries, as this is the crystal’s hidden medicine. Red Jasper invites you to connect deeply to the Earth as you open your heart to receive the love of Mother Nature. Breathe this healing energy of Red Jasper into your heart as you start to feel strong, grounded, and more balanced within. It is now time for you to awaken your inner strength as you create loving healthy boundaries in your life.”

Crystal Meaning: “Sacred stone used in ceremonies for protection. Draws Mother Earth’s healing energy up into the body. Assists in setting healthy boundaries. Assists in overcoming deep-seated fear of abandonment.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this powerful card into your life today to remind you of the importance of healthy boundaries. Creating and understanding the meaning of healthy boundaries for most people can sometimes be overwhelming. When you start to create healthy boundaries, you can sometimes get confused and think you are being selfish or too hard on yourself and others. This is a perfectly normal part of the process of understanding and creating healthy boundaries, so be patient and gentle with yourself and know this process is different for everyone. You may have pulled this card today because someone in your life may be taking too much from you or you are giving too much. There requires a balance in giving and receiving – you can disempower others and yourself if this sharing comes from an unhealthy intention. The devas are here offering you wisdom and healing as you master the process of setting healthy boundaries. You are a generous, loving soul who provides healing and support to many people and the devas urge you to learn to honor your own needs first. Start to know and be aware of your own and others’ boundaries, remembering it is your responsibility to take care of your own needs. The action of creating healthy boundaries can bring out a deep healing of self on many levels. It brings the energy and awareness back to the heart and allows you to come from a place of love and clarity and encourages loving, nurturing and fulfilling relationships to blossom in your life based on mutual love, respect, and healthy boundaries.”*

~By Rachelle Charman

It’s a very good practice to establish boundaries in a relationship right at the beginning. But this is also when we are least likely to establish them, particularly if we tend to be people pleasers or don’t like to appear selfish or stern. However, if these boundaries are not set, then the grey areas can be what comes back to haunt you. When you appear to have no boundaries, or very shallow ones, then you appear to be more desperate to please, which can affect the level of respect someone else feels for you. And much of this is on an energetic level, and may even feel ok… until those non existent boundaries are pushed beyond your comfort zone.

We teach people how to treat us by putting boundaries into effect… or not. We show them where our moral lines are, and where not to cross them. Sometimes we loosen the boundaries when we think that someone is “THE ONE” and we don’t realize that is when we may need them most. It’s a difficult lesson to learn, as once the boundaries are not firmly in place, it is hard to enforce them later.

Somewhere in your life your boundaries are being tested. Where once you let your guard completely down, you are now feeling compromised. It’s not a nice feeling. What to do now? How to put boundaries in place after toes have been stepped on? There is no way to quietly put them in place, you must find your voice and do it.

Red Jasper will help you put boundaries where they are most needed, and teach you when to put them in place in the future. You will learn that it is best to put them down at the start of a friendship or relationship, whether it is between a family member, acquaintance, love interest or co-worker. You must aim for the boundaries to be respectful for both parties, and take your time, energy and efforts into account. Invite a clear and firm communication. Be brave and courageous when setting our your ground rules.

And see that instead of being selfish, you are actually establishing your sovereignty and personal space. This is something to be proud of.

Namaste

Life Path

Published April 6, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Life Path, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Life Path, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Life Path: “Do you wonder about your divine life path and purpose? You have been enrolled in spiritual training. This training might be obvious, in the form of a course you are undertaking, or hidden, in a life lesson that is currently triggering your healing, learning or growth. Whether it is obvious or not, successfully completing this training will empower you to fulfill your divine purpose this lifetime. Further clarity will be revealed to you; the Universe promises that you shall know what you need, at the perfect time, and in a way that you cannot miss.”

“You are in a spiritual training for a divine mission that serves your soul development and spiritual growth, whilst simultaneously helping others. It will help you express your spiritual purpose this lifetime. At times, your training may be aligned with study or applying your skills in ways that seem more obviously aligned with a spiritual path. At other times, your spiritual training may be disguised in ordinary life circumstances.

If you are unsure of what you are meant to be learning, of exactly how you are in spiritual training at the moment, look to the situations in your life that are causing you the most struggle. This is where you will find your training taking place. The struggle is the place where holding on is competing with letting go. It is, however, nothing to be ashamed of. A ‘growth edge’, where you are doing the inner work of growing into more peace, trust and love, is a sign that you are certainly growing! It isn’t comfortable. Sometimes it might cause fatigue and even a feeling of defeat. Yet you shall not give up. You shall continue, and in time you shall triumph with a feeling of peace, resolution and wisdom.

If you are feeling stuck – perhaps you are working on a significant issue or challenge that won’t seem to resolve itself no matter how much effort you apply – then you are being guided to ask for help from your spiritual team using the invocation below. Call upon your own higher self and soul to take over all aspects of the issue. Be patient, do not resist what is but neither collapse into it. Use your spiritual practice (for example meditation, journaling, dance, music, art, yoga, time in nature and prayer) to strengthen you as you move through this training.

If you are uncertain about what is happening in your life now, don’t fret. Sometimes a smaller desire has to be sacrificed for the attainment of the greater vision. Be at peace. Know that all beings shine at the right time, and so shall you.

This oracle is also a confirmation that a vision of your path on Earth is being shared with you – whether in small daydreams, big dreams at night, in meditation or simply in the feedback you receive repeatedly from different sources. You are being asked to trust in what you see, sense and feel about your vision for your life path and divine purpose. Even if you are not clear, trust that it is coming to you with loving divine timing. Be open-minded and listen for what makes your heart sing.”

Invocation: “I call upon the wise and unconditionally loving ones to assist me now in perceiving, living and manifesting my truest and most joyful life path and divine purpose. Help me know what I need to know, when I need to know it. And with everything else, may I be assisted to feel peace, trust and patience as my beautiful life path unfolds, guided by the loving hand of the Universe. May unconditional love reach into the hearts of all living beings, helping every creature to find true fulfillment of their destiny. So be it.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

We came in with a plan. A reason to be here, in this lifetime, in this phase of humanity on Earth. We came here to assist, to help and to heal. And we have everything within us to step into this purpose now. But we forgot it all. We were born and it was just to heavy. It comes through in dreams, in visions, in short lived inspirations. In that nagging feeling that something isn’t quite right. That something is somehow missing.

The world needs our help. Things cannot remain how they are. It is up to us to shift it. To wake up. To take back our strength as individuals and collectively. To turn away from the destruction and find a better way.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to save the world. To awaken and realize that you are able to do it. That things really can change and that you are an important catalyst for that change to take place. One by one by one waking up and shifting the collective.

Creating a new reality. One of love, harmony and peace. One that heals the damage that has been done and changes the way we see each other and the world.

A new reality where we finally wake up and realize that we are All One.

Namaste

Ull

Published April 5, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ull, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ull, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Ull: “Focus”

“Clear mindedness and a focused intent are necessary for success right now. You need stamina for long-term projects.”

“In the blanket of white that is the snowfield, a figure with a bow waits. He is camouflaged against his enemies. He is the picture of stillness, hardly moving, but when he does, it is with deliberate grace and absolute surety.

The sure, clear-eyed gaze runs along the straightness of the arrow. The arrow’s tip dully glows against the flush of the fingers holding it steady. Without ado, with complete ease, the figure releases the bowstring, and there is a hiss of energy and then the dull thump of the arrow impacting deep into its target. Then and only then does the bowman breathe out. Only then does he move to become more leather clad deity than snowman. As he rises to his full height, we see Ull, Norse god of marksman.

Ull is a very old deity associated with Germanic and Scandinavian people. Being a great marksman could mean the difference between eating and an empty belly, or between killing and dying, so Ull is an important god to have on your side.

Should you be going out to hunt something (think beyond hunting animals), to trap an idea, to chase a goal, or to travel in harsh environments (whether that means physical snowfields or emotional minefields), you would call upon Ull for the focus required for success. It is Ull who invented skiing and snowshoeing, and ancient artwork depicts him with sleds and skis.

Today Ull is a popular god of skiing. Some modern Nordic Olympians wear symbols of Ull on their clothes and equipment. It is certainly worth saying a few prayers to him next time you wish to tackle a harder than usual ski run!

Call on Ull when you need more focus and clarity in your life. No matter how harsh the terrain, literal or emotional, Ull can get you through to where you wish to be. He can lend you the stamina you need to complete a task when there are distractions, obstacles, or haters all around you. He is the essence of calm centeredness and will help you to achieve what you wish to achiever with a minimum of fuss.”

Shadow Side: “Focus is generally a good thing; however, if we focus on one thing and one thing only, to the exclusion of all else, this can be an issue in the long-term. We all know people who focus wholly on school and forget they have friends or other commitments – this is the shadow side of being focused. Focus is important, but so is balance.”

Symbols: “Bow and arrow, skiing, sleds”

Invocation: “Find or fashion an arrowhead. Hold it in your hand and say:

No matter what I chase,
No matter what I do,
Clear flight to my arrow
May it hit my true target!
Ull, I need your assistance with (state what you need to focus on)
Be with me on my journey; show me how to hit my mark!”

I love doing an invocation to Ull when I am in the snow. Try this blessing before you head out for a day on the slopes.
Place your skis or snowboard upright in the snow. Make a snowball or two. Stand back at least five paces and throw your snowballs at your skis. When the snow hits the target say:

“Blessings from Ull. I hit my target true.
Bless my skis/snowboard through and through.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

We are reminded here of the importance of clarity and focus. Of getting really clear on what it is that we wish to create, and putting the necessary energies into it. Laser focus. Conviction that the goal is possible. No distractions. No one to take away our power. Absolute commitment to the end result.

What are you creating? Where is  your focus? Are you taking responsibility for your life or are you blaming others for your predicaments?

How can you get crystal clear on what you are manifesting? A dream board? A list? An altar? How can you bring to your conscious mind where your energy is going, and correct what must be corrected in order to master your ability to mold your life into what you desire?

How can you be of service? What can you do in order to give back? How can you incorporate more healing, expansion, awareness and love into your life now?

This is a card of victory, of goals achieved and success attained. It is a message of possibility, of belief in the self and what is possible. Will you follow the guidance? Will you find your clarity, vision and focus? Will you commit to something new and put in the necessary effort to see it through?

Namaste

Dee
