Daily Angel Oracle Card: Shaman Of Stars, from The Shamans Oracle; Oracle Cards for Ancient Wisdom and Guidance by  John Matthews

Shaman Of Stars: “I am the Shaman of Stars. I bring the Heavens down to Earth. I drink in the beauty of the sky, swallow this elixir, and give it back as a transformative energy to all. I sign the song of the Heavens, and I show how starry wisdom can transform and re-energize you when you have walked the path for a long time and grown tired. I bring a blessing to you, and the restoration of strength when it is most needed.

The Shaman Of Stars

Patterns in the heavens have guided us from the most ancient times, and celestial magic is every bit as effective today as it was thousands of years ago. In this image the shaman reaches out to capture the energy of the stars and draw this blessing down to Earth, positively transforming those who receive it. Just as the messages of the stars can transform a moment in time, so the Shaman of Stars, wherever he appears in a reading, may enhance the meaning of the other cards; or if drawn on its own, the card may imply access to the deepest levels of wisdom and understanding.

Interpretations: Starry wisdom. Recognizing ancestral paths and relationships. Transformative energy. Changes in direction. Reassessment. Awareness of higher purpose.”*

Do you get out under the stars and feel their magic? It is revitalizing to your Soul. We actually receive information from the Cosmos every time we turn our face to the sky, daytime or night. But there is something extra magical about a starry night.

We can see the most stars when the moon is new, and as much as I love the deep pull of the moon, there is a powerful force deep within us that is stirred by the stars. We are of the stars, our DNA made of the galaxies, our planet an intricate part of the dance of our amazing solar system. When we gaze at the stars we see movement, we feel expansion, we get downloads of awareness and enlightenment. We clear our energy and still our minds. We experience the ancient mystery and magic of the a force too enormous for our minds to grasp. Yet we can tap into our own connection to it just by experiencing it. Just by taking the time to be still; opening our hearts, clearing our minds, receptive to whatever comes. We are just two days from the new moon, so as long as the skies are clear, you should be able to soak in some starlight over the next couple of evenings. Be sure to watch for shooting stars too, which are a sign of confirmation and inspiration sent to us straight from the Universe.

Consider bringing a warm blanket and lying down under the stars. Soak in the energy of infinite possibility with all of your senses and embrace it in gratitude and love. Feel your connection to All That Is, and let your spirits be uplifted knowing that there is so much wisdom out there, and so much love to receive.

If ever you are feeling overwhelmed; or feel that you need some guidance, or help to move forward… get out under the stars. Visualize your situation and allow the answers you seek to come to you. Know that you are part of something all encompassing, ancient, beautiful and profound.

Stardust.

Namaste

Odin: “Guidance”

“Seek guidance to solve and issue. Choose carefully whom you take counsel from. Respect experience; it takes time to develop wisdom and knowledge. Be patient.”

“Odin is perhaps the most honoured of all ancient Norse gods and is referred to as the All Father because of his position as a protector and leader of both gods and humans. He is considered the wisest of all the Gods. The thunder god, Thor, is perhaps the most well-known of Odin’s children.

Odin has an interesting duality, as he is both a god of war and death, and a god of poetry, storytelling and intelligence. Warriors honoured him before battle because they hoped to enter his halls in Asgard if they died. Fathers and teachers, too, honoured him in the hopes that they would be wise and protective for the children in their care. Those who wished to glimpse their futures or gather wisdom though an oracle could us runes – the oracular tool Odin created – which were a series of symbols often carved on bone, wood, or stone. (You can still buy sets of runes today.)

The mighty Odin appears in many wonderful stories, most with a theme of gaining wisdom and accepting wise guidance. Odin is often depicted with only one eye, as he exchanged the other for a sip at the Well of Wisdom when he was traveling to the World Tree, a place of connective power. This enabled him to see far, to know much, and to listen to all of the stories of the world.

Odin teaches us that education and listening to various wise voices is invaluable to won growth and development. The more we know about a situation, the better we can assess it; research is rarely wasted. He also suggests that you can find wise teachers among those with direct experience regarding your situation, or those who have many ears of experience at your task. If you need guidance in any situation, Odin is a solid choice to turn to, and he can guide you toward the answers that you need.

Shadow Side: “While listening to other people’s wisdom it is necessary to gain perspective and to choose what action to take, if we only take the advice of others and don’t listen to our own guidance, we may be giving our power away. Also, it is possible to read too much or continue to gather information when the time is right to act. Imagine if you consulted a couple of books and videos on how to ride a bike but never took action to actually get on a bike to learn how to ride it!”

Symbols: “Runes; the eight legged horse; Sleipnir; Spear tht never misses; Gungnir; The Sun; One eyed man with many names; Odin, Wodin”*

Take time to pause and ask for some help from your “Team”. You know who your team is, right? Your angels and guides and any other light beings or elementals who have agreed to assist you in this lifetime… behind the scenes. They wish to assist you now, and all you have to do is ask, and be receptive.

You may need to take a little break from moving forward in order to allow a new solution or opportunity to come to you. We often think we know what is best for us, and all concerned, when we actually haven’t thought of, or are unable to conceptualize what needs to happen in order for things to happen or problems to be solved. This time, there is something that we may not be seeing, but that our Team is more than willing to help us with. Gratefully accept the help that is on offer.

Sit back and relax. Find a way to be open to finding a solution that comes in the form of a miracle or gift. Keep sending gratitude, which will help to open your heart and mind to what is coming your way, and look for signs, messages and guidance coming to you over the next few days.

Let your Team impress you with their amazing skills!

Namaste

The Dreamer: “Visions, Trance, Apparitions”

“You have pure magic flowing through you in the form of visions, dreams, and trance like moments. You are visually psychic and all the world is full of messages being relayed to you both through the medium of physical sight and through the eyes of spirit. You may even find  you are able to enter trance extremely easily. You are adept at reading patterns within Nature, you can scry without meaning to, and you look into every face knowing the story it is silently sharing. Once glance gives you information about the person or place you are with or within, and you skill is an ancient one, revered throughout the ages. 

You may find yourself gazing intently at other people’s faces, and picking up information, being able to read expressions, seeing shapes and patterns and fate within the forms tea leaves take at the bottom of the cup, reading signs in clouds, or simply knowing what will happen before you open your physical eyes, because you can see what is to happen next.

Your eyes at this time are immensely important – so on a mundane level, please be sure to have an eye check up and look after your vision. Visually, you are very sensitive, so it may be time to change your environment, your appearance, or the appearance of where you spend much of your time so that it better offers you the energy with which you wish to go forward. Trust in your visions. They come from a magical place, and when you become able to read and to understand them, you will be the Dreamer indeed. Your vision is coming to reality – keep going. Your dream will become manifest in your life, and very soon.”*

Pay very close attention to your dreams. Day dreams and nighttime dream time hold many answers for you at this time. Where do you go when your mind wanders off? What do you see? The veils are so thin now, sometimes they are not even in our way. You can see through the dimensions, only your ego will argue with you. Pay it no attention, feel into it, what does your intuition say?

The Dreamer is a part of you, no longer in the shadows, no longer tucked safely away into the night. The Dreamer holds the answers to all of life’s mysteries. The Dreamer is fearless and bold; there is no need to hold back when you are dreaming your dreams. Your big, beautiful and bountiful dreams.

Trust yourself right now, more than you ever have before. Follow the promptings of your heart. Follow that which ignites your passion. Use your intuition as your GPS; allow it to navigate your way through life.

Trust yourself, beautiful Dreamer

Namaste

Trust Yourself

Trust Yourself, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Trust Yourself, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Trust Yourself, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Trust Yourself: “You are wise. You know how to grow, even without knowing how you know. Like the ancient forests, spectacular galaxies and the acorn that becomes the oak, there is a natural intelligence for growth that is beyond logic and reason. It just happens. At the deepest levels, we are governed by this force that is so palpable it literally shapes the world. At the same time, it is so invisible that sometimes we forget its presence and worry that our minds have to work everything out for life to happen and for us to be alright. We can become unnecessarily anxious about our affairs and how life will unfold.

The oracle brings the message that you are growing. You really are. Do not doubt it. Even if you do not see it yet, remember that so much is happening when the seed is still unbroken in the ground. Below the earth, it is summoning up all the might, power and force it needs to push above the top soil and burst up into the light. It is essential for anything good to happen later on! Yet we don’t see any of that. We just have to trust that things will happen when the time is right.

You are also being asked to trust in yourself. You know how to grow. Don’t over thing things, it won’t help you. Don’t worry so much, you are doing a great job in this game of life. When you trust yourself, you relax and you can heed your own wisdom, insight and messages much more clearly and easily.

This oracle comes with particular guidance. You have a big destiny this lifetime and much to experience. Sometimes you make the error of judging something that is unpleasant as negative or a mistake. It isn’t. It’s just part of your great huger for experience. It doesn’t mean you have to have a lot of it, but when you do, don’t shame yourself for it. Simply, let is be. Maybe it’s just fertilizer for your next step on the path! It is all a part of your life progress and it is all a sign of growth.

This oracle is also telling you not to resist any points of instability in your life. This even applies to your most treasured relationships or creative projects. That instability is just a growing pain because more consciousness, more love and more light wants to infiltrate and pervade all parts of your life. The instability is not a sign of sickness, but of growth. So do not fret. Instead choose to flow and grow.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

The struggle no longer applies. If you are struggling, it is because it has become habit, not because it is necessary. It is a mode of survival, the most primitive aspect of protection of ourselves. Fight or flight. Mistakes, pain, judgment, hindsight. Let it all go…

Step into the Now. See what is possible. Know that it is for you. Opportunity is here if you are ready to receive it. Passion is only a breath away. Peace, love, abundance, happiness, health and joy are yours for the taking, for the embracing. For the living.

You no longer need to set your expectations so low. You can aim high and be fully supported. You are worthy. You are worth it. You can have it.

Reach out and receive it Now.

Namaste

The Ancestor Of Guidance

The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman's Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The Ancestor Of Guidance: “I am The Ancestor Of Guidance. I remember you and so I watch over you. I guide your steps as you embark on your life path, and counsel you as you make important decisions about the direction you will take. Because I am of your family  – however ancient – I know well the deepest places of your heart and soul, and stand ready to assist you in discovering the path you need to follow.”

The Ancestor Of Guidance” The mighty stag with its branching antlers is one of the most powerful images to be found on cave walls. Here it represents the all important act of guidance. In an ancestral context this guidance is far more profound than merely showing a physical path: it is the guidance of our footsteps on an inner journey of the spirit, orienting us in the right direction and ensuring that we take no wrong turnings or decisions. The Ancestor Of Guidance oversees the steps we choose on our path through life, and counsels us from the all-encompassing wisdom of the Spirit World.”

Interpretations Of This Card: “Profound Wisdom ~ Direction ~ Aspiration ~ Seeking New Ways ~ Companionship Of Family On Your Journey ~ Realizations ~ Echoes Of Ancient Paths”*

~ by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The illusion of separation is falling away and we are able to feel, if not quite yet see, our deep connection to All That Is. We walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, and realize that our perceived problems are problems that have been navigated many times, over many lifetimes before. Knowing that there is no challenge too large to navigate our way around. Knowing that all who have gone before us have faced these very same challenges and survived. Knowing that those who have gone before us have learned, and even possibly even thrived, from the experience… soothes our Souls. Although we may not know all there is to know about our ancestors on paper, we can feel them close to us if we spend time connecting to the depths of their energies.

If you wish to communicate with the ancients, ask the Ancestor of Guidance to open your connection to this well of Divine Wisdom. Meditation to drum beats, time outside in the forest, or a dedicated yoga practice can enhance your receptivity to the guidance coming through. Set the intention to open up to the grounding energy of the Earth, and see yourself as a conduit for Spirit to come through you from the Universe. Imagine yourself as the mighty Oak tree: “as above, so below” … know that You are the magical connection between Mother Gaia and the entire Cosmos.

Mindfully working with the elements will also assist you in achieving a stronger connection. Earth, Wind, Water, Fire and Ether are timeless ally’s on your journey. Our ancestors have felt the deep resonant heartbeat of the Earth through many bare feet. They have breathed deeply of the vital and magical element of Air. They have been embraced by the life giving properties of water. They have paid their respect and deep reverence to Fire. Ether is the lifeblood of our very cells, as it was theirs, cycling through the ages, generation after generation.

Approach the ancients with curiosity and respect and consider incorporating sacred ritual, asking to come into co-creation with these powerful ally’s. Know that there is nothing they don’t understand, that although time passes and technology takes over, their energies are timeless, wise and true.

Namaste

Queen Mab

Published May 19, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Queen Mab

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Oracle Of The Dragonfae, by Lucy Cavendish: Queen Mab

Queen Mab: “Your ancient wisdom is awakening.”

“I am Mab, some call me Queen, and it is of your independence and personal sovereignty that I wish to speak to you at this time. Each day you see and feel injustices in your world, and each time you remain mute, you allow the energy to spiral. Now is the time to make the difference, now is the time to take back the power the Mother, the Earth Goddess from whom we are were birthed, gave to you to safeguard and keep wisely – the precious gift of being on this planet. Understand that you are energy and can use more than the old aggressive ways… use your energy and your mind, breathwork and what you call prayer, but what I call magic, to speak and allow your voice to reach others. You are more powerful than you know. When you find yourself struggling within the cage of anger and fear, breathe love, and rest and revive yourself with knowledge of your own strength. Know the Dragonfae are with you, and will help you transmit your messages around this world you dwell in now. For I know, and I tell you, that a reckoning will be made, and that you are a part of this magical planet’s rescue team. Be strong. Be wise. Stay safe. And change the world!”

Divinatory Meanings: “Getting back to the basics of enchantment and magic, reconnecting with the old ways, and seeing them as eternal. understanding the karmic history of your area, and applying the principles and lessons in the present moment. Telepathically receiving messages, and trusting in them. Knowing that your thoughts have energy, and can have an immense impact on what happens. (Think of the threefold law…). Indulge in some old-fashioned magic, believe in your own abilities, and trust i the ancient ways of wisdom that run in your blood, as well as in the planet’s heartbeat.

Respect old magics – learn more about the ancient lineages of magic. This does not mean to become a creature of what is called the past, but to understand and respect magical heritage and connections. Ask Mab to assist you with clearly defining and deciphering telepathic information, and ask her to let you know how you can assist the Earth. Many of the creatures of this planet are now facing extinction: Mab assists them, and will help you to activate others’ care for them too. Older family members may also reveal that you have a magical lineage. They may do this in subtle ways, but they shall do it.”*

It is possible to change things in your perceived reality; each individual has this power; one thought at a time. Our own inner peace is reflected out to the world, creating peace around us. When we worry, fret and assume the worst, living in fear of what we read on the media, of what we see on TV, or all the terrible things that we are told by those close to us our of their own fears, we have a choice. We can sink into deep despair, fearing the inevitable tragedy that may come, or we can take a stand through love and harmony. When we consciously and determinedly take action through mindful direction of our thoughts, we can create miracles. When we focus on keeping our thoughts positive and of the highest possible frequency and vibration; we can affect change around us.

The trick? We must believe we can. Do you believe you can change the world, one thought at a time? If the answer is yes, then it’s time to get to work. If you are not sure, the work is to go within and find your inner strength and wisdom.

Namaste
