Daily Angel Oracle Card: Insight, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards, published by Blue Angel

Insight: “Understanding, Awakening, Awareness, Self-Evaluation”

“Recognize the higher truth beyond apparent limits. Honour the path you have walked so fear and all you have become. Know thyself.”

Card Story: “Cradled at the base of a circular window, with her back to the wide expanse of stars beyond, a woman sits in silent meditation. Grounded by her breath and the ancient stone beneath her, she is a clear channel of quiet knowing. With her inner eye focused and heart brightly opened, she basks in the vision of her own truth. Rays of Universal light shine on through. Insight.”

Card Message: “This card is about self-evaluation and self-understanding. In our modern world, there is so much sharing of information through such a wide variety of mediums (internet, phone, tv, radio, word of mouth, etc) that we can quickly fall into the habit of looking outside of ourselves for the answers that we seek. We value others’ opinions beyond our own, to know what to eat, how to act, how to dream, where to live and who to love.

Taking time to truly know ourselves expands our awareness. It makes it easier to grow from our experiences. Not only does it give us strength of character but it allows us a greater understanding of other people and our surroundings – allowing us to see beyond surface circumstances into the deeper currents within. This is insight.

It is time to cultivate insight by honestly examining who you are – your past journey and who you have now become. It is also time to claim your Divine capacity (and responsibility) to see beyond the current ‘you’ and to recognize your unique truth and potential.

With a clear lens of non-judgment, consider your experiences, your relationships and the lifestyle you lead. Reflect upon the experiences that have most strongly influenced your path. What traits and habits have you developed, inherited and absorbed along the way? Are you living in alignment with the person you truly came her to be?

Some aspects, you will love about yourself and these may be your strengths. If there are some you are not proud of, then this is the first step to deciding how you may like to change certain aspects about how you are living. Insight allows you to choose to change or shift your path, in a positive and fulfilling direction.

Through the lens of insight we are able to make better choices in our life and to create a future we desire. We are able to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Insight allows empathy, understanding and compassion for other people which can only benefit any relationships we choose to engage in.

Insight raises your consciousness, adding a spark to the ever unfolding light of universal consciousness.”*

Perfect synchronicity to yesterday’s message. We must learn to rely on ourselves. Listen to our hearts and souls, looking inward instead of outside of ourselves for the answers we seek. We have everything we need in order to move forward, we must allow ourselves to grow and evolve. We are often what holds us back, fear of failure, of rejection or judgment of others. We lose courage and lack the strength to carry on. We look to others to tell us which way to go, how to live our lives. We don’t trust ourselves to make the right decision.

If we look closely at what we have learned from our perceived mistakes, we can acknowledge the wisdom within. Then we no longer have to fear repeating old patterns, we can safely move forward into something new. We can let go of the pain from every level, body, mind and spirit, no longer allowing it to hold us hostage.

You are who you are not despite but because of everything you have gone through. And painful as it may have been, it’s ok to move past it now. You are beautiful and powerful and passionate and you have so much to share with the world. Remember? You are a Spiritual Gangster.

And now, you can embrace the gift of insight and use it to move forward on your journey.

Namaste

Responsibility

Published May 3, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Responsibility, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Responsibility, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Responsibility: “Self-discipline ~ Empowerment ~ Reliability ~ Fulfillment”

Card Story: “Cradled in the palms of loving hands, a sprouting seed rises up through the soil into the light of day. within this seedling is the growing vision of a great fruitful plant or tree. There will come a time when the steward of this seed will need to plant it into the ground for it to spread its roots and grow in full form. There will come a time for this seed of life to give back all who have nurtured it along the way. But for now it is safe here, being protected, and honoured by the one who was given the responsibility to care for it.”

Card Message: “Responsibilities and self-discipline are vital in creating all the things we want in life, from a healthy body and mind, though to a successful career and happy relationships. This card is an invitation to smile at the opportunity to fulfill your responsibilities.

Sometimes responsibilities feel like a burden, as though they take away our freedom. But we actually need some responsibilities to give us structure in our lives. By having this structure in our lives we end up having more freedom rather than less.

If we avoid responsibilities we are unable to learn the basic lessons of discipline and organized focus required to achieve our goals. We may drift from one relationship, home or job to another, repeatedly ending up in situations we do not want to be in, but not knowing why we ended up there.

Once we take genuine responsibility for ourselves we realize that the power to change is always right here within us. We stop blaming other people and external sources and we become self-empowered. From this place we find the strength, dive and energy to make the choices necessary to truly fulfill our desires.

Next time you hear yourself ‘blame’ someone for something, stop and ask yourself how you can take responsibility and help the situation. If you are unhappy in your job or relationship, what can you do to change it? If you need more money, how can you take responsible action towards this today? Only you can be responsible for you!

On the other hand, if you are overly responsible for others you may disempower them by not allowing them to take responsibility for themselves. We each need to learn our own lessons in life. To acknowledge our strengths and to learn from our challenges. Know when you have played your part and when it is time to let the seed grow on its own.

By taking responsibility for ourselves and embracing our responsibilities in life, we build a foundation toward a successful and fulfilling life. We become powerful individuals rather than dependent ones. We claim a sense of strength, freedom and confidence that comes through discipline and self-mastery. From this place comes the realization that we can create anything we went to this lifetime!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

The good news is that you are one hundred percent responsible for creating your reality. The bad news is, if you don’t like your current reality, only you can take responsibility and change it for the better. If you resist this concept, there may be a little work to do around it.

Yes there has been pain in your life and possibly it occurred when you were too young and vulnerable to do anything to change it. Or maybe you have suffered a loss or great tragedy. This is not about belittling anything you have been through or are going through. My heart goes out to those parts of yours that are shattered, I have been there too in my own way. We all have pain. I get what you might be thinking… how could you have created that? Why would you have anything to do with it? Well, on a Soul level, for whatever reason, you came into this life with a specific lesson that you wanted or needed to experience. It may just be the most challenging one of all. It may not make any sense to you on this level of consciousness. It may cause so much pain that you refuse to buy into that and that is completely up to you. But if there is a shred of belief in there and you are willing to open up to it then hear me out. It’s just a theory.

What if we came in to learn how to overcome the worst of what has happened to us. To find a way to move past it and find peace despite it? What if the ultimate challenge is to create beyond what has happened in the past, and find a way back to our true authentic selves. To learn to choose love no matter what. To refuse to get caught up in the victim consciousness that gets us stuck in a downward spiral of negativity. To find light where there is darkness and be a beacon for those who are also struggling. To step into your soul purpose and do what you are destined to do.

Maybe you are working hard doing all of this in your own life and your message is to step back from someone who is draining your energy by playing out their own victim consciousness. You can be supportive but you do not have to be drained; it’s ok to distance yourself a little. We all have lessons to learn, and we can’t step in and live someone else’s life for them, even if we wish we could. Everyone has their own journey. Everyone of us has our own individual circumstances, experiences and lessons. We can all support each other, love and accept each other during our darkest times, but we cannot rescue someone who is not willing to put in the effort to rescue themselves. We can only hold space for them while they heal themselves.

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.

The Mind

Published March 2, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Mind, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Mind, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards Published by Blue Angel Publishing

The Mind: “Openness, Flexibility, Imagination, Learning”

“Your mind is the architect of your experience. There is no limit to what it can create.”

Card Story: “Within the calm focus of a single moment, a young woman trusts enough to look within. Through the window of her mind, she is drawn through stars and galaxies, beyond preconceived notions of the possible, into the far reaches of the Universe. Her heart is open. Her spirit soars. She is at peace, aligned with the infinite beauty of her true nature. Mind.”

Card Message: “Ancient wisdom keepers knew that the best way to harvest the infinite power of the mind was to keep it focused upon the highest aspects of truth. Through mantras, prayers, songs and communions, they trained their minds to deliver clear visions to the infinite wellspring of their subconscious. In this way, they created worlds.

Our mind can be our greatest ally and our most challenging foe. With our mind we focus the lens of our being and with that focus, energy grows into our reality. Close your eyes for a moment and capture a snapshot of your thoughts. Are they holding visions of your highest potential or are they spiraling in the other direction?

It is time to sharpen your awareness of the activity of your mind and to call upon this incredible resource to be a true and trusted guide. Train your mind to focus on the positive aspect of life and to remain open to new concepts and ideas. Whether you enroll in a class, learn a new skill or enter a new meditation practice, now is a great time to expand your knowledge – and enrich your ability to harness your true mental power.

Part of developing the gift of our mind is to learn how to focus, while remaining open to new ideas and higher ways of thinking. We must resist the temptation to get locked down to what we think we know. Be willing to let go of rigid judgments and fixed perceptions. Stay loose and open to the potential of something new entering your mind.

This card also encourages you to take time to dream and to use your imagination. Time to allow free flowing thoughts and to strengthen the more creative side of your mind. Time to trust your intuition and make choices occasionally from a ‘hunch’ or a feeling rather than from a well thought-out rational plan. Just allow your mind to settle and follow the flow of life. A calm centered mind can easily align with the flow of higher guidance. Find out what creative, imaginative places your mind can travel to, if you let it loose!

Expand and free your mind… and the rest will follow.”

~ By Caryn Sangster

The mind unleashed is our most powerful tool. Not out of control, but just free of the limitations we put on ourselves. The ego keeps us in check. It worries for us, keeps us ‘safe’ and protected from harm. It keeps us small, telling us how things might go terribly wrong if we put ourselves out there. It reminds us of all the other times things did not go as planned, and demands that we stay fearful, doubting our true potential.

But this is an invitation to see what else is possible. Where else can the mind wander? What can it create, dream up, imagine. Practicing mindfulness can bring a new awareness to how we are holding ourselves back. We can see where we dream something up, get inspired but do not take the necessary action to bring it to life. Where we let fear take the wheel. We choose the safety of the known, even if it feels old and stagnant. We stay small when we could step out into the world in a much bolder way.

Open your mind up. Give yourself a chance to explore. Meditate, contemplate, expand your awareness. Make new choices. Create something new.

It all starts in the mind: the dreaming, the exploring, the creating. But then the next step comes. Action. Bringing it from the unmanifest to the manifest. Breathing it to life. Taking the risk.

Take the time to dream and conjure, but know that action is also required. Again we are reminded that March is a month of doing, not just dreaming. It is of putting your focused intention into birthing something new.

Namaste

Passion

Published March 1, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Passion, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Passion, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Passion: “Desire, Fun, Fulfillment, Joy”

“Your greatest point of power is found in the courage to fully ignite your passion.”

Card Story: “Emerging from an etheric field of deep heart green, a dancing being demonstrates what happens when Divine inspiration infuses a heart felt desire… A torch of pure resonant light ignites so deeply within that it changes the entire chemical makeup of the body it moves through. A pool becomes a wellspring, a stone becomes a diamond, an inner glow becomes the sun. At the very heart we see what is both the source and the outcome of the energy she or he exudes… Passion!”

Card Message: “Sometimes we get stuck on the treadmill of trying to get somewhere or be someone based on external pressures and expectations. We get stuck in our daily life routines so long that we forget what we are passionate about. We put aside thing we would really love to do with the justification that once we do ‘X’ (get this job, achieve that goal, earn that accolade), then we will have the freedom and the power to do what we really want to do.

What if you knew that your greatest point of power to truly live the life you came to live, was resting in the very center of that which you love the most?

It is time to give yourself permission to do more of the things that truly make you come alive. To remember what used to make you throw back the sheets in the morning and leap into the day – and to find a way to re-ignite that energy in your life now. What brings a spark to your eye and a lightness to your step? What fills your body with such excitement that it opens a smile deep in your soul?

It is true that love has the power to heal all wounds and open all doors, but it is our passion that allows us to leap through to the other side.

When we immerse ourselves in what we really love, we awaken a part of ourselves that is connected to the very pulse of life and everything just seems to flow. It is like our soul takes over and we feel invigorated with a powerful desire and drive. We get swept up, letting go of time, worries and any restrictions. We come away feeling rejuvenated and connected to an energy that washes over into all other areas of life. By engaging in our passion, we become the energy of passion, transferable and highly contagious wherever we go.

Find ways to re-ignite your daily life with things that you are passionate about, and the energy of your inner light will begin to lead you on a bright and bold new path of expression in the world.

Follow the pulse of your passion!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

March is an important month for 2018 and of course, it starts off with a bang, a big bright full moon just to get us started… January and February were to set the stage, we are still assimilating the cosmic energies. Lunar and solar eclipses, super full moons and the fertility of February’s dark month new moon. The first two months were used to get us ready. More clearing out and more setting of intention. More shifting of perspective and alignment with Soul path.

March is for stepping into your power. Doing rather than just getting ready for part one of the Main Event. And we must do it willingly or be dragged along in it’s wake… keep that in mind. It’s all about mindful and concise action. Going after what you want with the faith that it is possible to make it all happen. And happen it will.

If you were in a play, you would be standing center stage watching the curtains go up. The audience would be seated, enthusiastically anticipating the show (except these are your guides, cheering you on). You know your lines, you know where you need to be and there is no putting it off any longer. You are ready to step into the spotlight; so get excited about it! You know this is the real deal and there is no time or energy to waste, you must put in your best effort to reap the best rewards. Or suffer the consequences of course! No regrets is moving forward fearlessly; no opportunity missed or lost.

Do not let fears and doubts set in, just get out there and do it.

Everything you have done has culminated in this moment. You have all you need to succeed. All you need is to believe in yourself.

Gather your courage and strength and pour it into your passion. March is your month to be grand and bring your dreams to life.

Namaste

Presence

Published February 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Presence, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Presence, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Presence: “Awareness, Attention, Reality, Connection”

“A path of miracles is unfolding right now, in this moment. You must be present to win.”

Card Story: “In the morning light of a spring filled forest, a young girl is drawn into the radiant presence of one of life’s purest creative forces – a honeybee in motion. With the sun on her  skin and the gentle breeze filling her lungs, there is nowhere else to be in this moment but right here, connected the pulse of the natural world and her own true nature. In this space, she cannot help but smile from the very center of her being. This moment my last only seconds, but within this window, miracles abound.”

Card Message: “In the increasingly hectic lifestyles we lead these days, we are often lured by the pull of multi-tasking. While our hands and bodies are busy, the mind also tends to busy itself, wandering into the past, the future and everywhere in between. It has become extremely common (and in many cases acceptable) to be less than fully present in life. Amidst our daily activities, as we drive, as we work and even as we commune with friends and loved ones, we are often fragmented and distracted. In this state, we do not even realize the magic we are missing.

This card is a bold invitation to bring your presence back to the moment and to see what great gifts you are ready to unfold right here where you are. Practice catching yourself when thoughts or actions stray from your immediate experience. Become aware of your thought patterns and gently bring yourself back to the moment, with the knowledge that right now, you are right where you need to be.

Even when a situation genuinely needs to change, often the best first step is to bring our awareness back to what is. When we are busy putting all our thoughts and energy into the past or the future, we do not see the spiritual support and the blessings that are present in each moment. This card encourages you to gently bring yourself back from dwelling anywhere other than in the ‘now.’ By being fully present, we are able to recognize and utilize the guidance available to us.

Stop for a moment and bring your full attention to this present moment. Bring your awareness to your breath, to your body and surroundings. What can you hear and what do you smell in the air? What would happen if you brought to this moment your wholehearted presence?

Allow blessings and glorious new opportunities to flow into your life now… and be fully present to perceive and receive them. Affirm to yourself that you are right where you need to be in this moment, knowing that there are no limits to what the Universe can deliver through the doorway of your presence.

Be here now!”

~ By Caryn Sangster

‘Be here now.’ This is such an important message for us all. All of us could do with the reminder to pull ourselves back into the present moment. There is so much going on around us; too much most of the time. Work, bills, family responsibilities, home care, pets, and the number one waster of the present moment: technology. Busyness to the point of overwhelm and the habit of living a life of distraction just to feel like we can get away from it all.

But when we are living in this hamster wheel of craziness and busyness, we miss out on all the important things in life. We miss out on the connections, the love, the magic of the natural world. And that makes us feel sad and disconnected; isolated. Like something is missing. And we search for it. But we search in all the wrong places. We add more stuff, we buy stuff, we try to get away, we distract ourselves more, and we get more desolate. We think it is because we need something physical, we need to buy something, go somewhere, meet someone. And that starts the hamster wheel going even faster.

But if we can just learn to stop and jump off the wheel, we can find new meaning in the simple things in life. We can appreciate our loved ones more, and connect on a deeper level. We can immerse ourselves in the miracles of the natural world. We can learn to say no instead of living in overwhelm. We can make time for the things that make us happy, that lift us up, that ignite us. And those are often the simple things in life.

Commit today to practice mindfulness. To work on being in the present moment…. as often as you can. One little trick that works to bring yourself back into the now moment is to focus on your breath, following it through your nose and all the way down into your belly and all the way out again. Another is to gaze at the back of your hand (I’m not entirely sure why this works so effectively but we will just call it magic). Remember that the present moment is the most powerful time we ever really have. It is the time to set intentions. The time to focus our energy. The time to be receptive and the time to step fully into ourselves.

Master the art of being in the present moment and master your life, taking full responsibility for the shifts and changes that become available. Opening up to the Universal connection. And becoming the most powerful version of yourself.

Namaste

Dreams

Published February 2, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dreams, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dreams, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Dreams: “Messages, Signs, Symbols, Guidance”

“Look for the wisdom in your deepest dreaming… Awaken to the visions of your highest being.”

Card Story: “In the center of the path of infinite dreams is the iris of an all seeing eye. Individual and universal, connected to all things. The Source and seer of sacred knowing, it reveals to us the inner truth of our journey through the patterns, symbols and cycles of creation. Clearing the sky, drawing us in, opening our view to the dreaming within. A man looks over his shoulder to see his likeness in the clouds, catching a glimpse of himself watching himself… from above.”

Card Message: “Our dreams are doorways to different aspects of reality. An open landscape of exchange between our conscious and subconscious minds and the great beyond. Dreams carry messages and guidance for us. They help us to process the events and patterns of our physical life and they put us in touch with our spirit, our guides, angels and even relatives that have passed over.

It is time to pay close attention to your dreams. Not all dreams seem significant but by paying attention to your dreams on a regular basis, you will begin to notice which ones hold important messages for you. Take a moment upon waking to write down your memories from sleeping… notice where you were and any symbols that seemed significant. Become aware of how you felt in the dream.

Certain people, themes or memories may arise in your dreams so that you can heal hidden wounds or awaken to forgotten aspects of yourself. By writing down your dreams you will increase your intuition and sensitivity to them. You will become more in tune with what messages/guidance you can take from them to enhance the choices in your waking life.

In the same way that we can feel out of control or unconscious of our dreams while sleeping, we can also feel out of touch with our hopes and dreams in life. This card is a call to reclaim your role as an active, conscious dreamer – as a visionary weaver of life’s greatest gifts and possibilities. Look at what you dream of achieving in your life. Are you actively moving in the direction of  your dreams or do you feel deep down that you will never reach them?

Take time to crystallize your vision for what you truly wish to achieve. Allow your soul to speak through your imagination and paint a picture of your highest potential. Realize that there are absolutely no limits to what you can create in this life. Do not waste another day just dreaming the dream – start living it! Begin to put time and energy into your dreams so that they become a reality. Make a plan, write a list or whatever it is, that is the first step towards your dreams. As you move in the direction of this vision, the Universe will rise within to meet you. It is time to live your dreams!

In the words of Goethe, ‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can… begin it. Boldness has wisdom, power and magic in it!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

Pay very close attention to your dreams, both waking and sleeping. Use your dreamtime as valuable tool to create, explore and guide your subconscious mind in the direction you wish to go. Ask for assistance before you go to sleep; for signs, symbols, messages and inspiration to guide you through your current situations and on to your life path.

We can actually train ourselves to remember our dreams just by working with them. Journaling to assist you in identifying patterns, seeing signs and deciphering messages. Placing a crystal such as Amethyst, Apatite, Shaman Quartz or Labradorite under your pillow to enhance or amplify the dream experience. There are teas such as Blue Lotus or tinctures such as Passionflower which also assist in more vivid dreaming.

Also be aware of what your dreams actually are in your waking life… what do you wish to create? What do you dream about? Use your daydreams and your imagination to bring these dreams to life in full detail. Get excited about them, see and feel them as real as your night time dreams can feel.

You have a passed over loved one or guide who wishes to be your dream assistant. Try doing a 5 min meditation before you go to sleep, connecting with this energy. See the person standing in front of you, beckoning you forward. Don’t doubt yourself, whoever pops into your mind is most likely exactly who is wishing to communicate with you. Know that you are safe when you are with them, and they will protect you and show you the way.

Set an intention before going to sleep, maybe you need help making a decision, solving a problem or letting something go. Ask for perspective and inspiration around this particular situation. Keep your journal right beside your bed with a pen handy and take a couple of minutes in the morning to record through writing or drawing what came to you before you forget. Thank your guides for assisting you during dreamtime and helping you to remember the information that came through. If you have trouble remembering, do not worry, it may take a little practice, and you can ask your guides for simple, clear and direct messages to make it easier.

Namaste
