Alchemy: “The path you are on is about to go through a very powerful transformation. Nothing is how it seems.”

“You have an opportunity to take a big leap in your level of consciousness. It is extremely important that you focus on letting go of any negativity and beliefs that no longer serve you.

You have access to the energy of alchemy, which can transform the most challenging experiences into incredible gifts and miracles.

Meditate and take action on your highest goals and dreams. They are on their way to coming true.

Let go of your expectations. What is about to appear can surpass anything you have dreamed of. The most important part is that you are prepared, and ready to receive.

The energy around you is very potent at the moment so make sure that you are using this time as productively as possible.

Give yourself time for prayer, gratitude and celebration.”

Action: “Rub your hands together vigorously for 40 seconds, then place your hands a few centimeters apart. Visualize a golden ball of light. Focus your intention on what you would like to create and place this intention into the golden light. Then move your hands towards your heart. Feel your heart expand and grow full. Ask your Higher Self to guide you towards your deepest expansion and evolution.”*

~ By Inna Segal

Alchemy is the magical process of turning lead into gold. Fear into love. Pain and trauma into forgiveness and growth. The mundane into the magical. It is a valuable skill, and it is abundantly yours to master. Everything is changeable and everything is in the process of deep transformation. Everything is shifting, progressing, expanding and elevating. We are moving out of the old and into the new.

What can you change in your life right now, by looking at your past experience and making a different choice? How can you see yourself differently, completely transform your belief system around what is possible for you?

Tonight is the new moon, the perfect time for planting seeds, visualizing and declaring clear intention. The new moon is your blank canvas, your chance to paint a different picture of your life and patiently coax it into reality. It is a time to foster big ideas and take a few chances. It is a time to know that you can manifest your dreams with absolute certainty. A time for the very early stages of new love. A new business idea. A new collaboration.

If ever you have had the chance to be powerful, to choose your right path, to create your highest potential. Hold the energy of that time in your mind’s eye and know that this time is even more powerful.

Use it wisely. Don’t hold back.

For the Highest Good Of All and So It Is

Namaste

Temperance

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Temperance, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy

Temperance: “While the Hanged Man represents physical restraint, Temperance symbolizes spiritual restraint. Love and life are precious and fragile, and they must be handled with care. Temperance is the light hand, the gentle touch. It is the wisdom of reserve, the virtue of silence. It is the quintessential symbol of spiritual transformation resulting from a careful alchemy of heart and mind, carried out with moderation and precision.”

Divinatory Meaning: “Spiritual protection; reserve; tranquility; moderation; communication; healing; sobriety; a collaborative creative work; a peaceful mind; a serene presence; a combining or reworking of energies; keeping careful guard over the emotional waters.”

Temperance as Challenger: “Energies are poured into destructive or wasteful endeavours; imbalance; a period of calm is disrupted; an outpouring of emotion; a need for greater sobriety; reserve is needed; anxiety; a wish for a peaceful life feels unfulfilled; a quarrel; a need to compromise.”

Magickal Uses: “Great for bringing balance and moderation, for soothing sorrow or anxiety, for improving communication, and for increasing cooperation and bringing good luck to partnerships. It can also be used to increase reserve, or reversed, to let go of reserve.”*

~ By Melanie Marquis

Here we have a message about balance, healing and the promise of bright futures. We are asked to be especially mindful and aware of our actions. This is not a time for hasty decisions or impulsive behaviour, and it is not a time to get caught up in victim or lack mentality.

This is a time to appreciate what we do have and work to attract more of the good stuff. There is no room for doom and gloom here, despite what chaos may be going on around us. It is about minding our reactions, and not allowing ourselves to be triggered. It is also about removing barriers in the form of limiting belief systems and anything that holds us back from our true destiny.

Watch for messages; it is no coincidence that there are wings on his shoes, wings on his head and the Caduceus on his arm; these are all significant of Mercury or Hermes, the messenger. By being in the present moment, and using all of your senses, you will find that the Universe desires to communicate with you on a much deeper level. Watch for synchronicity and watch for signs that have special or significant meaning for you personally. Know that the more you see… the more you see.

Use discretion and moderation at this time, watching your diet, getting proper nutrition and lots of water. Get fresh air and exercise daily. Treat your body with love and care and make time for yourself every day. You cannot move forward when you are feeling run ragged! You are only a meditation, a salt bath, a walk, a song, a creative project away from healing each and every day.

Namaste

The Merlin

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.

Namaste

Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Alchemy: “Once Starseed has experienced and understood the true significance of transition from one state of being to another, she or he explores the the alchemical process of transmutation, where by elements are combined to create new forms.

While the ancient alchemists were supposedly attempting to change lead to gold, their higher purpose was in transmuting the dense, physical body into the spiritual light body of the enlightened soul.

The Alchemy key employs the magical process of glass blowing, where by the four primary earth elements of air (the breath for the glass blower), water (dripped from above to cool the glass), fire (melting the glass), earth (the silicates that, melted, form glass) are are combined to create the new form: a beautiful blown glass sphere.

Let us not forget that the consciousness of the artist, the focused intent, is the primal ingredient or impetus in this process of transmutation.

The Alchemy key is rich in meanings and can be interpreted at many levels. On the one hand, it is about blending different elements, with patience and skill, to create a desired outcome or new form. On the other, it speaks of balancing aspects of our lives in order to move forward. For some, it is a key to spiritual healing, building from the previous key of death versus immortality and how we learn from our grief and fear when we embrace our own infinity.

Words associated with this key are chemistry, temperance, mixing, blending, combining, merging, experimentation, synthesis.

What elements can I bring together to create a new perspective? How do I balance various aspects to bring harmony into my life? What is the right blend of ingredients for the situation at hand? Do I have the patience to keep working until I find the solution? What is my vision for what I am trying to create, and how do I plan to achieve it? Do I have balance in my heart, soul, and mind?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Again we are brought a message of Alchemy. Turning lead to gold. This is the process of ascension, releasing the old, dense, third dimensional reality and embracing the new, higher consciousness of the fifth dimensional Being. It’s all about perspective… shifting, molding, transforming our reality from the inside out.

There is a call to simplify our lives; get back to nature, reconnect on a personal level. Walk the Earth. Look into each other’s eyes. Limit technology. Meditate; Listen. Get back to the old ways. This is how we reconnect to our Great Mother Gaia. This is how we awaken and expand our consciousness. This is how we shake off the programming and reactivate who we really are. We align with our Soul Purpose, stepping off the hamster wheel and onto the journey of our lives.

Namaste

Raven

Published April 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Raven, from the Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Raven, from the Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson

Raven: “Magic”

“Throughout time, Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been true in many cultures across the planet. It is sacred, in the medicine ways, to honor Raven as the bringer of magic. If the magic is bad medicine, the carrier may be honored out of fear rather than out of respect. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been dabbling in areas in which they had no knowledge, and a spell may have backfired on them. Rather than analyzing the dark side of sorcery, realize that you will fear Raven only if you need to learn about your inner fears or self-created demons.

Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. The void is called the Great Mystery. Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being. Great Spirit lives inside the void and emerged from the Great Mystery. Raven is the messenger of the void.

If Raven appears in your spread, you are about to experience a change in consciousness. Th is may involve walking inside the Great Mystery on another path at the edge of time. It would portent a signal brought by the Raven that says, “You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.” Raven’s color is the color of the void – the black hold in space that holds all the energy of the creative source.

In Native teachings the color black means many things, but it does not mean evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or the road of the spiritual or nonphysical. The blue black of Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness, and a changeability of form and shape that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absentia healing. In any healing circle, Raven is present. Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel ‘dis-ease’ or illness. Raven brings in the new state of wellness from the Void of Great Mystery and the field of plenty.

Raven is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and the intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, Raven would be the courier for that energy flow. The intention could be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

If you have chosen Raven, magic is in the air. Do not try to figure it out; you cannot. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the sparkling synchronicity of this alchemical moment. Will you recognize it and use it to further enhance your growth? Can you accept it as a gift from the Great Spirit? Or will you limit the power of the Great Mystery by explaining it away?

It may be time to call Raven as a courier to carry an intention, some healing energy, a thought, or a message. Raven is the patron of smoke signals or spirit messages represented by smoke. So if you want to send a message to the Blue Road of spirit, in order to contact the Ancients, call Raven. Or, who knows, the Ancients may be calling to you.

Remember, this magic moment came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to bring it to light. In doing so you will have honored the magician within.”*

~ By Jamie Sams and David Carson

Raven is magic. Magic and mystery and all things sacred. Raven is the trickster, showing you the lessons you are refusing to learn. Bringing them to you in a way you simply cannot ignore any longer. Raven is intelligent, wise beyond our comprehension. When Raven speaks to you, listen closely for there is a message there for you. Raven is the sign, is the symbol, is the totem. Is the medicine.

When you hear Raven stop and listen to your heart. Listen to your thoughts. What was it you were just thinking? Did Raven just answer your question? Do you now know the answer now?

Raven is listening too, what will you ask for? What is your request? Are you open to receiving this magic? This medicine?

If Raven comes to you during dream time, expect synchronicity, magic and profound wisdom to enter your life imminently; there is no ignoring the call of Raven.

Namaste

Goals

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals: “Dedication, Process”

“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life”
~ Greg Anderson

“In a larger metaphysical sense, our journey through life is said to be full of transformation from an imperfect, corruptible state towards a perfect, healthy and everlasting state. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Thus painful or difficult changes that we endure can in theory burnish us in a spiritual sense to a high, golden shine. We can also seek out knowledge, opportunity and challenge; it is not necessary to merely allow life to happen to us.

In this scene, an Alchemist serves as an analogy for striving to achieve an end goal through study, experimentation, dedication and perseverance. His facial markings trace the beginning and end points of his quest from base lead through its various stages of purification of the soul to gold. The symbol for gold appears in the center of his forehead, where the Third Eye chakra is perceived to be.

This card is a reminder to stay focused on the goal and to continually apply the required self-discipline. It will all be worth it in the end.”*

 ~ By Ciro Marchetti

Be mindful that there may be people or situations around you at this time that trigger you. They may trigger sadness, pain or fear; they may trigger worry or self-doubt. These are all coming up for a reason, they are little hurdles along your journey; challenges that you must learn to turn from lead to gold in order to move forward. When you are feeling triggered, suddenly stressed or frustrated or angry or sad, instead of stuffing it and putting on a mask, look at the situation with detachment and compassion. What did the person do or say to trigger you? Why are you allowing yourself to feel triggered by this? What other reactions are possible at this time? What lesson was learned from the past experience that holds the power to trigger you? How do you release yourself once and for all from the ties that have bound you to this lesson? Once you gain clarity you can find a way to bless, release and move forward.

This is a great time for journaling, getting it all out on paper can give you perspective and is a much more powerful tool than seeking advice or complaining to friends or loved ones. When we write it all out, we force ourselves to see the problem from all angles, and then we are also called to use our own deep wisdom to solve it. When we allow ourselves the time and space to do this, we can listen to our own heart’s to guide us, rather than being guided by someone else. We take control, and we heal ourselves.

Do not let yourself get off course, this is only a speed bump, and you are being challenged for a reason. When you solve this, and truly learn to let it go, you will never be triggered by it again. This is one step closer to your manifestation.

Stay the course on your quest, Spiritual Warrior.

Become the Alchemist.

Namaste

Deep Knowing

Deep Knowing, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

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

Deep Knowing ~ Essential Meaning: “Intuition; Listening to the oracle within; Empathy; Hypersensitivity”

The Oracle’s Message: “Intuition is the faculty that allows you to enter into a dialogue with Source, the Consciousness that you are a part of but cannot see with the naked eye. It is perplexing that people are taught to ignore this natural capacity to navigate their journeys, to access their inner guidance. Know that you have an ability to read between the lines and find all the truth that was missing when the story was told. This deep knowing allows you open the door to wisdom far greater than what is available in the limitations of human experience. You are given information that may make no sense whatsoever to the logical mind or five senses but which is 100 percent correct and true. The trick is to listen and then to act accordingly. You are now invited into this sacred dialogue of deep knowing, so tune in and trust your vibes – they will be right. Ask and you will receive answers from unusual sources.”

Relationship Message: “There are occasions when you just know, deep in your heart and soul, that a person is going to play a meaningful role in your life. Someone crosses your path and suddenly, out of the blue, you are connected at a level impossible to describe. That feeling marks a moment in time etched indelibly onto your soul. Someone has entered your life who will be instrumental in your journey, so pay attention. Two hearts are calling to each other to begin an alchemical process. This is also a sign that your intuition about the person you care about is correct. Trust your heart to lead you now. Magic is about to happen.”

Prosperity message: “This is a time when your hunches will pay large dividends if you listen to them, take the risk, and act. Within you there is an oracluar consciousness, a higher and deeper knowing that¬† transcends the machinations of the smaller “thinking” mind. At the deep level of your intuitive senses, you have an access point to the genius of the collective. The energies of all thinkers and creators, all inventors and leaders, and all that you need in order to leap into success are available to tune in to. This is an act of listening intently. Past the busy mind, your genius awaits.”

Protection Message: “You are in empathy overload and need to get grounded again, so tune out for a bit. Hypersensitive, you are suffering from psychic exhaustion. This signals a time for a recharging of your batteries. Set energetic boundaries, take a salt bath, empty your mind, and get back to you. It is not a tie to be too open. Soon enough, you can let your guard down. Right now you need self are and self love. It is time to say “no, thank you” to anyone in your life who exhausts you. Won’t that feel good?”*

~by Colette Baron-Reid

As we purify our bodies and listen to them closely, we will realize that all we need is within us. We don’t need outside advice, we know what direction we need to go in; we just need to learn to trust. We don’t need to second guess ourselves, or get permission from another to follow our dreams, it is up to us to advocate for ourselves.

With deep knowing comes freedom; freedom to listen to our Souls speak to us through our hearts. A constant internal dialogue it is guiding, nudging, whispering, blessing. Follow what feels Light, listen closely to your body, it will give you very clear signs. When making a choice or decisions, breathe deeply and bring yourself fully into the moment; then look inward. How does it feel? Where in your body do you feel it? Does it feel tight? Or does it come through with grace and ease? Have you spoken your truth? Are you feeling compromised or empowered? You will always know the truth… learn to listen…. learn to take action on the guidance.

Have faith in your deep knowing.

Namaste
