Gypsy In A Reading: “You are encouraged to say yes to new opportunities and adventures, ideas and connections. Especially the ones that fill your heart with a sense of excitement (perhaps just before your mind begins to dwell on doubts and concerns, trying to talk you out of something before you even give it a chance). You can handle the unfamiliar better than most. Once you get your bearings, you will find a way to thrive, to enjoy what you discover and experience. Let the yearning of your soul to explore the new and exciting inspire you. The unfamiliar and the unknown hold great blessings for you. Open yourself up to new horizons.”

Spiritual Guidance: “There is wanderlust in your soul, that heart quest for new worlds and amazing experiences. You are supposed to feel this way. You have a gypsy soul that will always seek out something new and different. This is just how your life is meant to be, a divine adventure. And there is an adventure that is meant just for you: places to see, people to meet, experiences to have. You are meant to go on a journey, inside of yourself and out in the world. You are meant to explore a world bigger than the one you currently know. It is going to happen. Trust in divine timing. Be open to what life has in store for you. Maybe you are a little afraid and wonder if you are brave enough. (Quick answer – you are brave enough, and then some). Maybe you worry that you have missed your chance, but you cannot miss your destiny. It is right here waiting for you, and your gypsy soul is going to grow and fulfill even more of the purpose for which you are born.”

Sacred Ritual: “Find a place where you can stand comfortably. Say aloud, ‘Through unconditional love, I give the Universe permission to guide me on a divine adventure. I trust the gypsy in my heart, which urges me to explore the new and unfamiliar and to make the entire world my home. I am curious and open, and I trust that I will be looked after as I take my soul journey.’ Then open your arms wide, as if you are embracing your future, the adventures that are meant for you and all the beautiful blessings that life will bring to you – for now you are open, ready and willing to receive. Gently scoop up all those good things and accept them into your heart.”*

This card resonates right into the core of my being. I am a Gypsy; heart and soul. I am a free spirit, an adventurer, a wander, a mystic a yogi and a seeker of truth. Sagittarius, the sign of the centaur. Freedom, expansion, philosophy. Gypsy.

When I read those words my heart beats a little faster. My mind immediately conjures up ideas of exotic people and far flung places. Turquoise waters and secluded beaches, pristine coral reefs. Local flavours and secret places. Nature untouched.

But alas, I am a mother, in the thick of it. It will be a while before my physical body can follow my heart on the adventures it craves. For now my freedom is in the moments between. Between working and picking up kids. Between the odd Saturday to Sunday that they go to their dad’s. Between the responsibilities, the obligations and the scheduled events.

But I’m still a Gypsy. I can still anticipate adventure. I can still invite in new people from exotic places and dream about traveling to the far flung places. I can still express myself creatively and I can still conjure up excitement and adventure. I can wander through the woods or down the beach. I can choose to experience things differently; shift my perspective. And I can still say yes to the opportunities that come my way.

And so it is, being a Gypsy and all…

Namaste

Reassurance of the Golden Light

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Reassurance of the Golden Light, from the Lightworker Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay published by Blue Angel

Reassurance of the Golden Light: “This Golden Light comes to you as a gift of grace and reassurance. It is an embrace from the Universe, an expression of divine comfort and a sign of hope. When the Golden Light appears, it is a sign that everything in your life, even the most troubling matters, is going to work out perfectly. They are held in the graceful hand of the Divine, and will be resolved more swiftly and beautifully than you might expect.”

“The Golden Light is a very real phenomenon, although you may only perceive it when you are particularly relaxed and your clairvoyance is already developed. However, whether you see it physically or not, it is real and powerful. If you could see it clairvoyantly, it would look similar to the golden rays of a setting sun. The same warm, loving glow is cast over your heart and mind when the Golden Light is shining upon you. If you are in a room when it comes upon you, you will wonder if a light has been switched, as the glow is as noticeable as if a lamp had been placed in your room, its warmth illuminating the space.

In truth, grace and divine assistance are always there for the asking, but there are times when we are in need of extra support. During such times, ironically enough, we can forget to ask for help.

Perhaps you are struggling with a particularly difficult time in an initiation or a challenging choice lies before you. Or maybe you have taken a leap and just need to know that you are doing the right thing and somehow, even though you don’t feel in control of what is happening, it is going to work out.

When the Golden Light is given to you, it is freely done so, as a gift from the heart of the Universe. It is letting you know that you are a child of the Universe, and you are dearly loved. It is reminding you that, on the path, the struggle to continue with trust, patience, faith and courage can seem almost overwhelming. However, the Universe is with you, supporting, loving and believing in you, every step of the way. You are not alone. You are never forgotten. You are always loved and encouraged to take your journey. You are reminded that the Universe is smiling upon you.

There are times when you will call upon the Golden Light because you know that you are in need of that loving consciousness, and it is appropriate that you do this. You can use the invocation below. There are times, however, when you will just feel, sense, see or know that the Golden Light is being given to you as a spiritual gift from the Universe. Such is the case, not, as you have been drawn to this oracle. You are being asked to just feel peace. Trust. Know that everything is working out perfectly, and you do not have to worry – even though you do not know why you should possibly feel that way! The Golden Light is wisdom and love. It knows, and sometimes that is all you need to know in order to be at peace.”

Invocation: “I call upon the reassurance of the Golden Light, the comfort of the divine Spirit, and the loving grace of the Universe. Thank you for being with me now, for bringing me peace and reassurance even in my darkest moments. Thank you for sharing a special truth with me – that you love and hold and cherish and assist me always. I love you! Thank you for loving me too. May the Golden Light heal all beings of fear and doubt, gently bestowing mercy, compassion and the loving reassurance of divine presence into the hearts of all. Through divine grace and my own free will, so be it.”*

And here we are already, walking in to September. Two thirds of the way through 2018. What will the rest of this year hold for us? Where are we directing our creative energy, our intention, our focus?

We are being given a gift today, the gift of reassurance that we are, in fact, on the right path. Even if everything looks contrary to that. We are also blessed with the Golden Ray of Light. Creativity, courage, strength, confidence, wisdom and empowerment are boosted with this energy. Prosperity, abundance, manifestation are all available to us now. It is up to us to receive this special and very powerful gift. What will we choose to do with it? How can we be of service? How can we use it most wisely? What can we create?

There are opportunities coming, maybe even a bit of a surprise. Something you have been hoping, wishing and praying for will finally come to fruition, so it is important to use your energy wisely. Focus on your dreams, focus on what you want, not what you do not want. Use the energy of the Golden Ray to empower you, uplift you and give you the boost of energy that you need. Take action on your creative process, this is not the time to sit idle and wish that things would go your way. Show the Universe you are serious about what you wish to manifest

And know that you have everything you need to do it. Set your intention now for the last third of this year. Decide where you will be when it comes to a close. And then move forward fearlessly to make these dreams come true.

Namaste

Archangel Michael and Lapis Lazuli

Archangel Michael and Lapis Lazuli: “The Vision”

“We bring you the gift of vision, an inspirational insight from which you shall derive energy, motivation and a sense of purpose. You have many abilities and the capacity to do numerous things with your talent, time and energy. We know your heart yearns for meaningful, focused purpose. You have things you want to accomplish, perhaps so many that at times you may feel as though you are attempting to live more than one life in this lifetime. We know you can benefit from a vision, something that integrates all you want to do into one unifying purpose. Even if you do not see how it is possible for all your talents and dreams to be woven into one master vision, we know that love makes all things possible, according to its own creative intelligence and wisdom. The Universe shall take care of the details, and from the loving universal mind, in accordance with divine timing and your own readiness, we shall gift you with your vision.”

“Vision is a ‘top of the mountain movement’ where you get a sense of where you have been and where you are headed. It is often an all-encompassing, big picture flash of insight. You won’t necessarily know how what you see could possibly happen. If it is a very uplifting and expansive vision, then your mind may wonder if it is a fantasy or wish rather than a vision, simply because the truth of how it is going to unfold and develop is beyond what your mind can conceive of at the time. Maybe for you the vision is more of a feeling, a clear yearning in your heart to do something in particular with your life, or an inner knowing that you are a healer, for example. Maybe you have just had your vision or are waiting for the moment when you finally ‘get’ why you are here on this planet.

Your vision will not necessarily include details of steps to take at first, although that will come when you are ready to take the relevant steps. It can be like driving a car through a foggy night, seeing only the most immediate part of the road before you at any given time. Does that mean the road doesn’t exist beyond what you can see? Of course not. It does however mean that although the vision gives you the equivalent of a destination, a sense of where you are headed, once you are on the journey, the road will not always be clearly visible beyond what you can do today. You could compare it to the difference of being at the top of the mountain and seeing all before you, and the compromised vision that has to occur as you descend from the peak and begin the journey.

The view during the journey itself, is not often as clear and far-reaching as the moment of the vision. You can trust in the guiding hand of the Universe to help you fulfill your vision even when you cannot grasp the entirety of the steps you need to take to get there. There will certainly be times when you may wonder if you have lost track altogether. These are the moments when you need to come back to the vision to gain energy and motivation to keep going, no matter what seems to be happening (or not happening) in your view of things. Even if it is not always clear to you as you live your life, through the guiding intervention of the compassionate wisdom of a wildly creative higher intelligence, you are being given exactly the opportunities and tests, gifts and information you need to take your journey. The Universe cannot take your journey for you, but it will certainly empower you with all you need to be able to do so yourself.

Remember too that the vision is not just a destination in the more limited sense of achieving certain successes and manifesting certain dreams. It is a state of consciousness, a way of being that enables you to access that reality. Every step on your path is a way to build that consciousness within you each day. This is why tapping into what your vision feels like to you, is just as powerful as having a clear visual for where you are headed. Sometimes it can be eve more powerful to feel the feeling of what it would be like if your vision had already manifested. The joy, confidence, trust, peace and feeling of maturity this engenders in you can enhance your journey – and increase your readiness to receive and embody the manifestation of your vision.

If you have been waiting for clear guidance and direction to come to you, this oracle brings you news that it shall be given to you. This may have already happened, in which case you are being asked to return to your vision and put your faith in it. If you are impatient for your vision to come to you, or to be further clarified, then this oracle brings you reassurance that your prayers will be answered and your insight into the divine plan as it relates to your life purpose and divine destiny will be shown to you. This will happen at the best time for you, so that what you are shown really gets through!

Finally, if you have been asking if your sense of your destiny, a vision or dream you have had, or a feeling about an amazing future project is correct, this oracle brings confirmation that you are not just ‘imagining things’ but accessing genuine insight.”

Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:

‘I call upon the Crystal Angel of Lapis Lazuli and Archangel Michael who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing gift of vision. I open my heart and mind to the divine love that bestows all vision. I cast aside doubt and fear, limitation and expectation. I open my mind with absolute trust to receive the vision of my divine life purpose. According to divine compassion, mercy and grace, and through my own free will, so be it.’*

~ By Alana Fairchild

This is pivotal. A leap of faith that starts with a single vision, a flash of insight or a dream. This is the energy of Uranus in retrograde (it has been since Aug 7th and will be til January 2019!). This is Uranus just getting warmed up, this is the energy of surprise, the curveball, the windfall, the sudden upheaval. But it’s all about setting things in motion that should be in motion. Things that have to happen in order to get to the next phase. Don’t let this scare you, for there is nothing we can do to stop, change or delay it. Just roll with it, embracing the change as it comes. Surrender and take notice of clear guidance that is coming through.

This is a stepping stone to the next chapter of your life. An invitation to joy, to finding your passion and creating your dreams. People will walk out, and people will walk in. Opportunity will come knocking, maybe even land squarely in your lap. Anything is possible right now.

In fact the most intriguing ideas, the ones that seem pure fantasy, those are the ones to pay attention to. Those are the ones that will pull you out of your rut, drag you kicking and screaming out of your comfort zone. Those are the ones that will fire you up with the passion and zeal of inspiration and set the wheels in motion. So don’t write them off, listen to them.

They are coming straight from you Soul.

Namaste

Medicine Wisdom

Medicine Wisdom, from the Love Your Inner Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante Published by Blue Angel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Medicine Wisdom, from the Love Your Inner Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante Published by Blue Angel

Medicine Wisdom In A Reading: “The Earth Mother agrees to support your wants and needs, to help you live your best life and fulfill your dreams. Her generosity and her power to assist you is beyond what you can imagine. She is already leading you towards your sacred life purpose, providing exactly what is needed for your soul to blossom, just as she creates what is needed for the flowers of the earth to bloom. This is confirmation that you are on your sacred path. It may take some twists and turns, but you are headed in the right direction, and you are being supported in all ways to gain all the experiences and blessings that are meant for you.”

Spiritual Guidance: “You are a wild woman. You have the spiritual gift of medicine wisdom, the healing way of the sacred feminine. This soul wisdom and healing ability comes from Mother Nature. Her seasons and weather, her landscapes and the particular life that they support – including her animals, plants and crystals – all have their own unique purpose and healing power. Learning to recognize the signs, to feel for their meaning, to listen for guidance and activate the medicine wisdom in yourself and your life is your training as a true medicine woman of the soul. Listening, intuiting, feeling, experiencing, trusting – these are the ways you begin to tap into and harness the grace, beauty and power of the sacred feminine for healing purposes. When you live your life from a place of playful connection, reverence and gratitude for the Divine Feminine, she will love and empower you to accomplish things that you could never do on your own. She is an infinitely practical divine being, able to help you with every aspect of your life on Earth and, through you, to help others too. She is asking you to trust her, to let go of logic, or believing that you have to accomplish it all on your own. Let yourself be in creative partnership with the Divine Feminine, with Mother Nature, and as your earthly cares are provided for with ease and grace, you can dedicate your energy and focus to discovering and expressing your talents, which is how you fulfill your life purpose.”

Sacred Ritual: “Place a hand on your heart and say aloud, “I accept my calling as a true medicine woman of the soul, supported on all levels by the powerful grace of the Divine Feminine. I trust that Mother Nature is speaking to me daily, showing me the way to fulfillment, happiness, and peace for myself and all beings.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

You are being called back to the natural world in order for healing to take place. Back to the forest, the trees, the ocean, the lakes and streams. Back to the sun and the moon and the stars. Back to the healing properties of herbs and the deep wisdom of the plants and animals. Everything in the natural world has something to offer us, if we slow down and take the time to seek out it’s unique wisdom.

If you are feeling disconnected, isolated or alone, or if you have been spreading yourself too thin, this is a time to take some much needed rest. Wander in search of yourself, and to deepen your connection to the earth herself. Use all of your senses to communicate with her, to soak her all in.

This is also a time to step into being the medicine woman, or man. The healer, the shaman, the protector. What can you change about how you are living your life to make it more sustainable for the planet? How can you help it’s inhabitants? What simple thing can you incorporate into your life that would make a difference? Cutting back on water use; recycling more; buying local; disposing of medication, batteries and technology safely; repurposing something instead of discarding it; walking instead of driving today; incorporating at least one night of meatless dinners into your week; contributing to a cause or helping clean up a beach, using herbal medicine when possible instead of over the counter, refusing packaged or GMO’d foods… the list is endless.

Each of us can use our body, mind and spirit to reconnect. To ourselves, to the Earth and to each other.

Namaste

Diamond Tiger Of The Black Moon

Diamond Tiger Of The Black Moon: “Second Chances Bring Success”

“Your soul is on the diamond path of spiritual growth. You may feel pressured by life at times, but at a higher level, those challenges are helping you realize your true strength and physical power that you need for success, no matter what has happened in the past. You are developing the spirit, passion and vitality to fight like a tigress defending her cubs. Believe in yourself. There is great dignity and strength in your heart.”

In A Reading: “Do not judge anything or anyone, including yourself and what you believe is possible, based on the past. Reclaim and redirect your energy according to what matters most to you. You are stronger than you may realize. The return of strength after a challenge, second chances for success and a brilliant intuition or insight that ends a long lasting cycle of repeated struggle is indicated. A prophecy is given for empowered leadership, spiritual attainment and success after previous failure, which leads to an irreversible and positive outcome.”

Spiritual Guidance: “The struggles of your past were needed in order to grow. Yet now, having fulfilled their spiritual usefulness, they are no longer required. If you continue to interpret your life experiences through the filter of old beliefs and past happenings, you will lose the truth of what is taking place at a deeper level. You are being reformed, renewed, reborn, into a stronger, clearer, truer version of yourself. The past was needed to get you here, but it is no longer to be seen as something that defines you.

In astrology Black Moon refers to the unusual event of a second new moon in a month. As a sacred symbol in the language of the soul, the black moon represents either an emerging insight which you have previously been able to glimpse, but not fully grasp, or a situation that almost happened as desired, but didn’t quite make the full journey from wish to reality. The insight or opportunity will arise again in your psyche to either reveal or ground fully this time around. Diamond wisdom is fulfillment and is absolute. With another chance, your breakthrough will be irreversible, diamond-like in nature, unable to be changed back into the state from which is has evolved.

Tiger medicine indicates a vibrant physical strength, vitality, and health. If you have been lacking in this, you are guided to tune into your cycles of rest, whilst shifting your mindset immediately to stop reinforcing negative self-talk (or internalizing the perhaps well-meaning but unhelpful concerns of others). Instead, begin to speak to yourself and others of your vitality, radiance, and power. Use your mind as your ally – consciously, intentionally and with an understanding of its powerful effect on your body. This is not about the mind dominating and ignoring the wisdom of the body. This is about recognizing and applying mind power to nourish and infuse your being through positive psychology.

Tiger medicine comes to you at a time when your engagement in the world is becoming more pronounced. Your influence is increasing, even whilst you may feel that you are being called into your spiritual path deeper and perhaps even with more solitude for a time. The divine beauty, dignity, strength and presence of your spiritual light is shining through, not only in your own soul and life, but it is beginning to touch the souls and lives of others, too. Tiger medicine evokes a sensual hunger for life and experience. When you bring your spiritual light into all of your worldly adventures, you will become able to create uplifting outcomes of grace that would otherwise not be possible. Tiger reminds us to have courage in the face of any challenge, any threat or danger and to align with the truth of the Divine as our deepest ally, our greatest advocate, and our wisest advisor. From that secure inner spiritual foundation, we can leap with ferocious compassion, conquering any adversary in order to do what needs to be done in the world.”*

With the new moon and third and final eclipse of the season, today brings a message of an auspicious time to plant the seeds of our dreams. Choose one that you may have given up on; one that you have tried before but it seemed to blow up in your face. One that you buried deep and walked away from, convinced it was never going to be…. But on that note, release the old energy around it. Release all the details, the who’s, what’s and where’s that hold you to a specific idea of how it should all play out. Get down to the core idea, the bare facts of what it is that you wish to create.

Dream job? Relationship? Travel? Home? Where will you put your energy. And where will you let go of the energy. Maybe you lost a promotion to someone else, or maybe your business never really took off and you gave up. Maybe you had a painful relationship and have given up on love. Maybe you have permanently shelved your travel plans or your hope of buying a house or moving to a different city. Let go of what your dream job looks like, and concentrate on the feeling of waking up every morning excited to do something that you love; and the biggest bonus is that you are financially secure because of it. Let go of your ex and everything around that past relationship; let go of your ‘type’ of your expectations and everything around your past pain. Make room for someone new, open mind, open heart. A meeting of Souls. Maybe it is time to look at the road less traveled. Where would you love to see in the world? Have fun doing the research and getting excited about the possibility of seeing yourself there.

This is a time of second chances, not second go rounds. There’s a huge difference! If you find yourself stuck in the same habitual pattern, going around in circles, this is not a chance to go back to how things always are. It is a chance to have faith in yourself in a new venture, but one that has always been close to your heart. Be sure to release any and all that is holding you back, as it is only slowing things down.

Leave your story and any excuses behind. Channel your inner tiger strength, focus and determination and go after what is yours.

Namaste

Initiation

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Initiation, from the Isis Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Initiation: “Spiritual Testing Of Ra And The Lady Isis”

“When you are being spiritually initiated into the mysteries of light, love and power, there are moments of deep challenge. The key is to find the light within the challenge – the learning, growth or wisdom that can be summoned to turn the challenge into an opportunity for healing. Whilst the scorching heat of Ra seeks to burn through any resistance, the Lady Isis with compassion and cleverness will protect you from burning and instead enable you to be nourished and grow from the Light of Ra. Let Isis help you pass the test of intense growth as you thrive with new life.”

“For advanced aspirants on the path, initiation will occur at various stages. Sometimes your entire life will feel like an initiation, at other times specific areas will be flowing easily whilst others are deeply challenging. This Oracle comes as confirmation that you are not needlessly suffering. If you can find the light within the struggles, tests or challenges that face you now, you will experience breakthrough healing.

It is the almost unbearable solar fire of Ra that can cleanse the Soul of wounds and the love, compassion and intelligence of Isis that can temper the heat of Ra and stop it from burning and drying you out, or else you would be left with nothing but emptiness, anger, bitterness and despair in your heart! These are not meant to be the outcomes of life’s challenges! Rather than losing love and hope through the challenges of life, the Initiate understands all aspects of life are growth opportunities in various states of disguise, waiting to be discovered.

As an Initiate, this Oracle urges you to honour life as a gift and treat any challenge or pressure as a way for you to grow into a brighter and purer light capable of great spiritual service on this planet. That spiritual service includes growing an ability to be able to love freely and beyond limits, to love with courage and faith.

In fact initiation for your now, dear one, is an opening to new levels of power and peace, self-possession and love. There are such sweet fruits waiting for you at the top of the tree you are currently climbing. It may seem as though you are in barren land at times with little hope, nourishment or encouragement, yet your spiritual oasis is not far away! The Lady Isis and the Power of Ra together are helping you grow. Stay focused on the Lady and Her love for you and you shall pass through the desert of Initiation unharmed and deeply transformed.”

Sometimes along the path of awakening, expansion and enlightenment, we come to a crossroads, a challenge, or a test. It can feel like we have hit a wall; that we just can’t go any farther. It feels as if we have been stripped down, naked and vulnerable and raw. Maybe it even feels like everyone is against us; or it feels like we are completely isolated and alone.

And so we stand at the crossroads, weighing our options. Do we turn back to what we know? No, it’s too late for that now, we have long passed the point of no return. Do we hunker down and try to weather the storm? Yes, that is a possibility, yet our heart and Soul feels restless; there has been too much stagnation of late. Our only choice is to persevere. It’s scary and we can’t see the end, we can’t see our destination and we don’t even know at this point if it is there in front of us, or if it is all an illusion.

So we dig down deep. Faith is the only option. We move forward with absolute conviction that we are going in the right directions. It may take a little longer than expected. There may be a few more bumps in the road. Things may not look how we expected them to look. But we keep going. We have faith.

Faith in ourselves, faith in the Universe. Faith in the whisperings of our heart.

And we move forward fearlessly.

And in doing so,

We are initiated.

And so it is

Namaste

From Nothing To Everything:

“O my friend
If you are longing to be written on,
become a blank page.”
~ RUMI

“Have you been shedding your sins, your layers, your certainties? Gone are fixed identities and definite opinions! Keep casting those shackles aside, even if you fear you are releasing too much and then, perhaps, you shall cease to exist! You shall only cease to exist as you have known yourself to be thus far. Another emanation of you awaits, blazing angel! Something more beautiful and true.

Yet here you are at the pruning stage, like a gardener for the soul. Shall the garden spring back to life, or will the enthusiastic denuding process be rather too much an unintentionally kill off the garden altogether? Fear not. Your soul is made of hardy stuff. It can handle a lot of culling and will shine even brighter for it.

There is a greater story to be impressed upon your essence than the one you are currently dreaming up. Though you are brilliant – no doubt about it, my angel of love – there is one who is even more so. The imagination of this great writer is beyond our comprehension; the stories that pour forth from that cosmic poet in every moment are so rich they inspire the creation of art and music.

One such story is especially created for you. Yes, you. With a starring role and all the best supporting cast! You shall gasp in wonder, awe, glee and delight when you hear it! It is a great romance, a great adventure, with an ending truly spectacular and divine. Would you wish to hear it? Become attentive now. Put your own tales aside, as dramatic as they may seem right now, and prepare to be entranced by the greater storyteller, the living poet of love, as you are entranced in a tale of your unfolding divine destiny.”

“There are moments on the path of love that seem to focus on letting go; letting go of identities, of knowledge and certainty, of opinion and even attempts at control. We may feel as though we are being stripped back to our core and even then, perhaps, further still. We may wonder if we can bear it. What shall, if at all, remain intact through these rigors? We may feel challenged every time we attempt to become something great, as though we are blocked by circumstances beyond our control. Again and again, it is as though a greater hand smacks our wrist the moment we try to take hold of something firmly, someone, anything, that brings us certainty or inner stability. Such are the rigors at an advanced stage on the path. We meet this challenge when our soul is ready for it.

Why must it be thus? This is a sage question indeed. When we are asked to dispense with our story, the interpretations we have given to our life experiences over the years, we may not hear the request at first. We may vaguely note it but not recognize the great divine source asking this of us, and so we do not give such an inclination due accord. we may persist with spinning our own tales instead. Oh, our mind may fancy itself to be a great wrangler of the word, impressed with its own judgments and declarations, yet in the light of comparison with the divine tale for our soul, all our fancies shall pass away, revealed as so very frail, like clouds dissipating in the sky.

Perhaps we are graced with the realization – there is so much more! Or perhaps we still don’t get the hint and move into struggle as we try to enact what we think our story should be. We may hit obstacle after obstacle and create even more terror in our storytelling – that life is such pain, a struggle, that success may not be for us, that we are forgotten and unheard. Yet we could equally choose to wonder if obstacle after obstacle, closed door after closed door, is just a prompt to look for the open window to climb through. And if so, instead of seeking to impose our small story upon the great truth, we can live the truth of our divine destiny.

Then something magical happens: we participate through presence along with the unfolding story of our soul journey. We open up to whatever is asked of us, presented to us, happening through us, as we choose each day to come alive as much as we can. Then, as if by magic, there is something else that occurs. That would be grace – real, rich dripping with goodness and sustenance – grace. This is the sacred blessing that enables us to pay attention to opening doors rather than closing ones, the divine assistance that lets us know our life is proceeding according to a greater intelligence and plan. Once we stop thinking quite so much and live day to day, we will be blessed with the realization that our individual life story is so much more extraordinary and perfect than anything we could have summoned, even with our wildest imagination.

This oracle comes with guidance for you. You are being asked to let go to receive, to become empty to be filled. This may mean letting go of attachment to a lover so you can receive genuine love. It may be of no longer holding onto a fantasy of your dream job, but of being guided into your most soulful and successful vocation. It may mean letting go of wishes for your body or health to be other than it is, so you can simply get on with living each day, taking steps into wellness without thinking beyond one day at a time. It is the divine paradox that when we are asked to surrender a story or fantasy, it is because reality is knocking at our door, more often than not, with the delivery of what we have been fantasizing about – but in the best way for us.

The human experience of this paradox is that you may feel you are giving up hope, that your fantasy is dying. It may be very painful and bring you much grief. But all that is dying is your attachment and opinion about how it must be. This needs to happen so you can stop dreaming and start living it. This is what is happening for you now. Do not fear any part of your process; embrace it without expectation, with trust in your heart, that the Divine is simply guiding you from fantasy into fulfillment.”*

Does it feel as if every door has been shut, even those you were hoping to walk through? Do you feel you have been stripped bare, and are vulnerable to the elements? Do you feel like things are beyond your control?

This is a message of great surrender. All we can do is trust. We can hope and we can dream, but we are not in control at the moment. Things are being peeled… or torn away… in order to make space for the new. Mostly this is because it takes us too long to do this process ourselves. We are too fearful of losing it all. We cling on to what we think we know; the stability of the routine, the compromise. We are afraid to aim higher, to take risks, to take those big huge leaps of faith.

So the Universe nudges us forward. And then it gives us a big shove to get us to where we need to be. And we feel sorry for ourselves when this happens! It’s uncomfortable! We weren’t ready! We wanted what we thought we had….

And yet it was all holding us back from what we are actually meant to be doing, living, being.

So all that’s gone now. And the slate is clean. And something wonderful is right around the corner.

Surrender. Breathe. Believe.

Faith is key.

Namaste
