Fairy Wren: “Spontaneity ~ Creativity ~ Light”

The Gift: “While other members of the bird tribe fly to great heights, Fairy wren dances on tiny tree limbs, bushes and river reeds, signing her song quite close to the Earth. Fairy Wrens live in tight little family communities and use their dancing movements and songs to communicate many different messages – from calling out to a loved one to warning of danger or singing a duet with their mate!”

The Message: “Creativity is a magical thing and you are here to create! You might be an artist, a poet or a dancer… or maybe you are creative in the way you dress, decorate cakes or decorate your room. Sometimes we start with one idea for a picture, song or story, but once we begin it starts to change shape. Fairy Wren’s message is to have fun watching your creations grow into whatever they want to become. Dance with whatever comes up along the way. If you trust enough to follow what inspire you the most, each step will lead to the next and when you reach the other side will you look back ad see how magic it really is! And how magic you really are!”

The Call: “Stay open and light on your feet this week. Be ready to see new creative ideas, and try them out! Trust the magic of the moment. If you like the song that is playing, let yourself dance! Accept help from those who love you and be ready to have fun creating something that feels good this week – even if it is different than what you expected!”*

Are you honouring your creative side? It is a direct link to your higher self, and will help you to discover your Soul Path; your true life’s purpose. What makes your heart sing? Are you doing it? What makes time stand still? Are you incorporating this into your daily or weekly routine? Inspiration raises your vibration and is key to finding your true joy. What you may consider simply a hobbie or pastime, may be your key to healing and alignment as it holds clues to the direction your life should be taking.

Not everyone wants to pursue their hobbies as a career, but they can definitely be used to balance the energy required to “work” for a living as well as all the other responsibilities we face. When it’s all work and no play, we get stressed, overwhelmed and eventually burn out. Life just isn’t fun anymore! When we incorporate our passions in to our lives, making space for them and honouring them as healing and necessary, we create a bridge for joy to come back in.

What is your passion? How can you eke out some much needed time to pursue it? What has been holding you back from incorporating it into your life, and can you understand how vital it is that you treat it with the reverence and respect it deserves?

It’s a new year and you are working on transforming into a brand new version of yourself. Make time for what you love and ask those who love you to support you in doing it! Don’t feel guilty for taking time for yourself, know that you are a better person to everyone in your life when you do so! And the more over burdened you are with responsibility you feel, the more you are reading this and shaking your head, knowing that there is no way you can do it… that is a sure sign that it is even more important than you realize!!

Make time to do what you love. Your body, mind and spirit will blossom. Oh, and make sure you have FUN doing it!

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Crow, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Crow: “Communication ~ Truth ~ Story”

The Gift: “Crows are great messengers, problem solvers, lock pickers and tool users! When one Crow solves a challenge, others in his family watch closely and learn… then they spread the word to other groups. Crows form close friendships with many different animals, they love surfing the wind, sledding in the snow and playing games with sticks. Crow’s pure black feathers are a symbol for great spiritual strength in many native tribes.”

The Message From Crow: “Crow is the protector and the messenger of your unique story in life. When he visits you, he comes to help you move from one life “chapter” to another. He stands at the doorway and asks you what you have learned and why you are ready to begin something new. He asks you what is the purpose of your new journey? What do you really want? Do not be scared. Crow asks you these things with a smile because he knows this is a special time and he has come to help you celebrate what you have achieved so far and to help light the way for what is next! Welcome!

The Call: “Next time you come to the end of one season, activity or project and are getting ready to start a new one, Crow invites you to take time to pause in between. Write down or talk about everything that you have learned and what you are thankful about, where you have been, and to say very clearly from your heart what you are now ready to do and  who you are ready to be in your new chapter. Listen for Crow’s “caw” as you walk outside. He will always help guide you when you begin something new!”*

We spend so much time chasing carrots. We catch some of the carrots, mostly little ones along the way… sometimes even big ones… and yet we don’t stop to savour the moment of victory… we just keep going, keep chasing, keep pursuing. What we don’t realize is how powerful those moments of enjoying can be. We don’t realize that by celebrating each small victory, we pave the road to more of the same with grace and ease. When we keep going in hot pursuit, we tell the Universe the same message over and over again… this isn’t enough… this isn’t enough… I’m not enough… what I am chasing is still far from me… I must keep going and going and going! Phew! No wonder we are all so exhausted and overwhelmed!

Take a moment to communicate with crow. Crow doesn’t miss a thing; Crow sees every little detail, from every angle. Crow never lacks confidence, and crow never misses an opportunity. Crow is crafty and quick thinking; he sees the lesson and moves on. He knows what he wants and is not afraid to go after it. Crow knows his heart and follows it with curiosity and freedom.

Learn to appreciate Crow by closely observing him. See him as he sees you. As an equal; a conscious being on this planet, an integral part of the Universe; connected to Spirit just as he is. Ask that he assists you in seeing opportunities coming your way. Ask Crow for definitive answers… to me, a big “caw” from Crow can shed a lot of light on a situation or person I’m wondering about. You decide whether a caw means “yes” or “no” and go from there. Crow will know exactly how to assist you… if you are open and receptive to his assistance.

Namaste

Wild Horse

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Wild Horse, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Wild Horse: “Freedom ~ Sensitivity ~ Spirit”

The Gift: “Horse has an amazing ability to feel the energy of those around her. When you feel nervous, the Horse feels nervous. When you are calm, so is the Horse. Horses have the largest eyes of any land animal and memories that are even stronger than the elephant’s. When a trained horse is released into the wild it quickly lets go of all of its training and returns to its deeper spirit of freedom.”

The Message: “With all of the noise of phones, computers, TVs and life around us, the message of Horse is to listen to the quiet feelings of your body and sense what is right and true for you. Every moment of the day you are surrounded by miracles and magic, you just have to be open to seeing them come your way. Horse says, do not let yourself be pulled in directions that do not “feel” right deep inside. And do not try to do too many things all at once. Do not think too much about tomorrow, just take a deep breath and bring all of your attention to the magic in this moment right here … and here… and here. With Horse as your guide, even the simplest moments can hold miracles.”

The Call: “This week, trust your “horse sense.” Take a step, smell the breeze and open your eyes to what is around you. If it feels good, take another step and open yourself up to what comes next. If the wind shifts, calling you someplace new, move in that direction and see what that feels like. Trust the wisdom of your inner senses. Follow the path of warmth and light. Follow what feels good in your body and Horse will lead you into the field of magic possibilities.”*

~ by Chip Richards

We are about to embark on a brand new adventure; a new chapter in our life journey. Beginning with stepping into a new year; comes a new sense of freedom and possibility. We have learned so much this year and we are still assimilating all the powerful energies that came from those lessons. Add a busy holiday season filled with the polarities of stress and joy and it can be quite overwhelming! Know that you must take time away from all of this to allow yourself to grow and to heal.

We are called back to reality by Horse medicine, that of deep instinct and wild abandon. Horse is highly intelligent and independent; you must earn her trust it is not just given away freely. Yet once you have proven yourself, you will have a special place in her heart forever. Horse needs space, she needs to run free, explore and burn off pent up energy. Horse is sensual and completely in tune with her environment and those around her, she knows right away if an opportunity should be taken or passed by. She fearlessly moves forward trusting her instinct and her deep connection to Spirit, and asks you to do the same. She encourages you to explore your own personal power.

Horse reminds you that your wild inner one needs to get outside and breathe fresh air, feel the elements, embrace the Earth. This part of you must be honored in order to deepen your connection to the Universe and set your Soul free.

Namaste

Eagle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eagle, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards artwork by Susan Farrell

Eagle: “Vision, Freedom, Inspiration”

The Gift: “Standing three feet tall (nearly a meter) in the body with a seven good wingspan (over two meters), Eagle flies higher than any other bird. Some native peoples call her the “Eye of the Sun” and believe that she is a messenger from heaven and the bringer of rain. With eyesight up to seven times stronger than our own, Eagle can focus on tiny details that are far away and can even peer into the depths of the water from way up above.”

The Message: “When Eagle flies into your skies she brings the message that you are here to soar to great heights in this life! She comes to remind you that no matter what happened yesterday, today is a brand new day full of magic possibilities that are ready to be discovered. With Eagle’s view, you will begin to see new and exciting dreams, and you will also see what actions you need to take in order to make your visions real. Dream big. Imagine what would inspire you the very most. Ask yourself, “What would I really love to do?” Eagle’s vision will help you to see your dreams. Eagle’s wings will help you to fly!”

The Call: “Take some time this week to go up to a hilltop or a mountain – someplace where you can see the world with Eagle’s eyes. Feel the breeze call to your spirit and look out into the distance, as far as you can see. Look also on the inside. Open your imagination to see a picture of what dream or possibility is most exciting to you now. Let this vision fill you with excitement and when you are ready, you will know how best to begin!”*

~ By Chip Richards

Each time we complete a cycle on our journey of transformation, we get to reinvent ourselves and expand our dreams. We can aim higher, dream bigger, get our creative juices flowing and put our manifestation skills to good work. We do this by using our imaginations to visualize exactly what we desire, and then asking the Universe to assist us in co-creating it, well, that or something even better of course!

Eagle represents freedom, liberty, power, strength and courage. She soars above the drama, unattached to outcomes yet with her eye always on her prey. She does not get knocked off course by fear of flying too high, and she knows that when she decides to go in for the kill she will do it with amazing skill and accuracy.

Eagle is here to remind us of the freedom we have available to us in every moment, that every choice, every action leads us either closer to or farther away from our dreams. She urges us not to get caught up in the thoughts, judgments or opinions of others, and to trust in our own instincts to lead us to exactly where we need to be. Trust in your own wings to take you where you need to go.

Namaste

Water

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Water, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Water: “Feeling, Expression, Flow”

The Gift: “Water cleans us, quenches our thirst and wakes us up. Water flows through obstacles, removes barriers, breaks down mountains and awakens life. Water slips through the tiniest cracks and carries our biggest boats with the greatest of ease. Water brings life to our bodies and our whole planet. Did you know 70% of our planet is covered with water and over 70% of our bodies are full of water too?!

The Message: “Water teaches us that when we listen to the current of the quiet voice inside, it always takes us to good places. The message water has for you is to trust your heart and “go with the flow”. Water is one of the most powerful elements, but it never forces anything. You can do great things right now by simply following the energy of what feels most exciting to you.”

The Call: “Go to the edge of an ocean, lake or stream and say a prayer of thank you for all the gifts that water brings. Ask if it has a message just for you today. Feel the water with your hands. Feel the water with your feet. Splash your face and give thank you for the water of life!”*

~ By Chip Richards

The waters of the Earth need our healing. Every time we use water, we need to get into the habit of blessing it with Love, Light and deep gratitude. There are many people who are not blessed with the abundance of pure, clean water that much of the rest of the world experiences. There are bodies of water that have been spoiled by oil spills, plastics, waste and toxins; all due to the ineptitude of humans. Send your Love, Light and Healing to each of these areas, every single day. Go down to the ocean and say a prayer of thanks to this vast and amazing bearer of life. Bless the rivers, lakes and streams.

To do a water blessing, stand before a body of water, or visualize on right in front of you. See yourself pulling down bright white love and light down from the Universe. See or feel the Light come down in a column and enter through your crown chakra, right at the top of your head. See or feel the light go down your spinal column, through your third eye and throat, into your heart chakra. Now see or feel bright emerald green healing light come up from Mother Gaia, straight up through the soles of your feet. See or feel it come up through your root chakra and up your spinal column, through your sacral and solar plexus chakras and into your heart center. See or feel the bright white Light from above and the incredible emerald green light from below swirl together and expand in your heart chakra.

Now use your intention to focus this light in a solid beam of bright white and green Light and send it out from your heart center/chakra right out into the body of water, holding the intention of healing, purification and deep gratitude. Alternatively, extend your arms out, palms facing the water and send the light from your heart down both arms and out your healing hands. You will know what feels right for you, there is no right or wrong way to heal the waters of the Earth. Do this work with the deep knowing that you are a vessel of healing light for the Divine. You are one with the water and the water is one with you.

Know that you can make a difference with your healing intention, it is powerful and true.

Know that these small, mindful and loving acts of blessing and healing are what we need in order to change, heal and purify ourselves and our Great Mother Earth, bringing her and all of her creatures back into balance.

For the Highest Good Of All.

And so it is.

Albatross

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Albatross, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Albatross: “Faith, Journey, Hope”

The Gift: “I wake with a dream of a distant shore, calling me. I know I must answer. I am Albatross. With a wingspan of over 11 feet (that’s over 3 meters), Albatross is the largest of the flying bird family. The shape of her wings are especially designed to travel long distances. She will journey millions of miles in her lifetime (mostly over the sea) and can soar on the wind without flapping for hours at a time. In fact, Albatross spends more energy landing and taking off than when she is in the air!”

The Message: “It takes courage to set out on a journey of any kind. Albatross knows that sometimes when we start a new adventure, it does not always happen exactly like we had planned. If we are learning something new or reaching for a dream, it can be pretty tricky to reach where we are going! Sometimes if feels like we re out in the middle of the ocean and we do not know when we will see land again! Albatross comes to say trust yourself and the secret winds that guide you. There is no need to flap your wings and fight against the storm. You were designed for greatness. Open your wings. Reach for the stars… and enjoy the journey along the way!”

The Call: “This week, take a journey! Join one of your parents or some friends and walk somewhere that you might normally drive. Do not rush from one place to the next. Do not tire yourself out walking or running too fast. Take the time to really feel what it feels like to be on a journey. When you reach where you are going you might just discover that the adventure getting there was just as fun as being there!”*

~ by Chip Richards

The journey you are about to embark upon is a journey back to you. It is time to simplify, to rise above the drama and to turn inwards. You can create a life of magic, mystery and adventure by shifting your perspective. You can create the resources to experience the life that you desire by strengthening your self acceptance and self worth. By knowing that you are capable of co-creating with the Universe; you allow the Universe to meet you with the magic you seek. Anything becomes possible.

A trip is on the horizon. It could be local; turning off your phone and venturing into the deep forest to communicate with the elemental realm. It could be a little road trip, even a day trip to a new beach or to climb a new mountain. Book it. Make time to be alone, or with the ones you love, doing something that brings you back into harmony with the natural world. Experience nature with all of your senses. Do something beyond the ordinary for you. Shake things up a little. When you do this you make space for more new experiences; you expand your awareness and raise your consciousness, bringing more love and light into your being.

Fly like the albatross, feel the deep sense of freedom that comes with absolute Faith.

Namaste

Orange Bellied Parrot

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orange Bellied Parrot, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Orange Bellied Parrot: “Radiance ~ Expression ~ Movement”

The Gift: “Winged one of the sun. Traveler by night. True colours shining bright. Master singer from above. Bringer of secrets and gifts of love. I am Parrot. The Orange Bellied Parrot is native to the Australian bird tribe and one of the only long distance migrators of its kind in the world. While Parrots can be master of imitation, they each have a distinct voice and unique call that is their own.”

The Message: “When Parrot flies into your world he brings a burst of fresh energy and the gift of movement. Just as Parrot flies through the trees at great speed, angling his body to keep going fast while just barely missing branches – he invites you now to trust the energy of what feels most exciting and be ready to leap into action. You have a  special way of seeing things and doing things that is all your own. If you feel like you have something to say, say it. When you speak from your heart people will always listen to you. And as you move in the direction of your dreams, the path will open magically to greet you. Like a rainbow in motion, your light will learn to bend!

The Call: “When Parrot sings and flies through the trees, it can’t help but bring its beauty with it. As you step out into the world this week, bring yourself – in full colour – with you. Dress nice, be playful and expressive. Spend time with people that make you laugh. Laughter opens doors to new possibility! Take time to speak what is in your heart and also to really listen to others. Breathe deep with a smile. It is time to share your true colors with the world!”*

~ by Chip Richards

Pay close attention to the birds around you at this time. They may not be parrots, but ravens, owls, eagles, humming birds and seagulls, amongst many others, can give you just as much of a message as the beautiful and colourful orange bellied parrot can, you just have to listen… pay close attention! Be particularly observant of those who show them selves to you, or call to you repeatedly. Patterns of seeing the same bird or animal is always a message from your animal spirit guides, and can be deciphered as such.

Birds are also the messengers for the angels who wish to communicate with us. This is alluded to in the picture above, do you see that the higher parrot is surrounded by light from the sky, reminiscent of the energy field or aura of an angel? Your angels are asking you to find the joy in your life right now, urging you to remember that through your passions you can invoke the most wonderful creative energy.

Magic is in action here, step forward to embrace it with an open heart.

Namaste
