Divine Consciousness: “Divine awakening! Open your mind to new possibilities.”

“Working with divine consciousness, we can open ourselves to deep thought and meaning that cannot be described in normal language; it is felt and expressed with the heart and higher self. Peace, bliss, divine power and unlimited expansion awaits you when you consciously connect at this level.

Between soul and spirit, it is possible to connect our inner being to divine consciousness. Divine consciousness enables us to open our mind to different states of reality and communication.

Right now you are experiencing an awakening! Congratulations. You are raising your consciousness and are energetically shifting. Your divine blueprint has been activated into a new state of awareness. You may feel oversensitive, but it will soon pass as you adjust to this new vibration. You are now connected to the healing energy of the divine; miracles can occur, now, if you keep a positive mindset.

Archangel Gabrielle supervises these transitions as you become connected in mind, body and spirit. Being connected to the divine consciousness aligns you with your divine purpose, grows and expands your spirit; encouraging you to remember who you were before you came into being.

You are encouraged to meditate to remove yourself from earthly dramas, gossip and physical issues. Be gentle with yourself. Eat nutritious food, drink enough water and get plenty of rest. By connecting to a state of consciousness higher than our mind’s physical awareness, we eliminate impurities and toxicity within the body.

Spirit, higher thought forms, angelic connections and animal messages will come clearly now. Keep a journal for the next 21 days to record the thoughts, feelings, and messages, meditation and dream states that may arise or appear to you throughout the day as your body adjusts to these new energies.”

Prayer: “I Am at one with the divine energy. I allow divinity to flow through me and align my unique vibration to the highest form of universal love.”*

~ By Anna Stark

What does awakening mean to you? What do you envision changing if you were to wake up? In yourself and your surroundings. How would things look or feel different from how they are presently? And where do these perceptions come from?

What if awakening is so subtle you almost don’t recognize it when it happens? What if it is like walking out of one room and into another. Or out of your house and into the forest. Maybe it is like turning on the light. Maybe it is actually a softening, a brightening, an opening up. An awareness of something bigger than yourself.

Maybe it is not elusive at all but instead contained within your next breath. A shedding of the programming, of the illusions, of the structures and institutions. A reconnection. A realization. An opening up and receiving.

It’s happening now. Things are shifting and changing so subtly and yet so profoundly that things will never be the same.

Thank goodness for that.

Get out under the full moon and contemplate your place in the Universe. Open up and connect with the energies that are available to us all. Decide to step onto your path of Soul purpose and greatest Light.

And so it is

Namaste

Communication

Published February 24, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Communication, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Communication, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Communication: “Listen carefully. Speak clearly and with confidence.”

“We communicate with others using verbal and non-verbal techniques. Our body language, listening skills and attitude determine how effective we are as communicators. It takes work and effort to improve our communication skills and, with patience, they will develop over time. Miscommunication occurs when we are unable to listen to other people. Arguments, mistakes and conflict occur when we refuse to acknowledge information or negotiate.

At the heart of all relationships is communication. Hidden messages can be seen by looking at body language, facial expressions and tone of voice. Improvements in these areas help to support solid friendships and relationships. Speak with truth and integrity. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t be impatient and intolerant – this could lead to misunderstandings and actions that, once said, cannot be taken back.

Spiritual communication is high right now, take notice of these signs and symbols from the spirit world as they try to connect to you through music, feathers, butterflies, dragonflies, moths, birds, and number sequences. Be open to receiving these messages as they come from the heart, with love.

Right now, you are asked to listen with empathy and understanding to those around you. Place yourself in the other person’s shoes to gain a new perspective. There are better ways to get your message across. Be respectful and open minded when speaking to others. Lead by example and express yourself diplomatically with honesty and dignity. It is better to communicate your feelings instead of being burdened by them. When you discuss your issues you allow space for solutions to be negotiated and resolved and improve your current state of affairs.

It is important that you avoid committing to plans and projects if you do not have all the information. Ask for more details and, when appropriate, speak to professionals such as counsellors, financial advisors, solicitors or teachers. Never be afraid to ask questions; it is ok if you do not have all the answers – that is why we have professionals!”

Affirmations:”I AM able to communicate clearly and honestly, making powerful connections with others.”*

 ~ By Anna Stark

This is a message about communication; a change in the way we communicate collectively. The red of her hair symbolizes passion, possibly anger and maybe a quick temper. Hot headed! The butterfly signifies transformation; the blue is throat chakra and orange is creativity. To me, this means that whatever is coming up for you right now, there is a better way to communicate about it. Find a way to rise above the drama; step around the conflict and see things from a higher perspective. There is no need to fight, to be ‘right or wrong’ but instead to listen carefully to the whole story or point of view of another, and then ask them to hear you out.

There may be some research that needs to be done here as well. There could be a missing piece of the puzzle and it is throwing a wrench in what you think you know about the other side of the situation. Something you think you know that isn’t quite true, or something hidden that will come to light.

Be open to something new, a different way of thinking, feeling and being. Let go of the need to be right, open your mind and open your heart. Drop the struggle and the conflict and incorporate love, compassion and awareness. What is best for everyone involved at this time? How can you proceed holding the intention of a resolution for the Highest Good of All involved?

How can you take the high road… which is most often the road less traveled and model some better behaviour than what is going on around you? If we each take responsibility for not just our actions but our reactions, we can create harmony and peace around us.

And so it is

Namaste

Boundaries

Published February 12, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Boundaries, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Boundaries, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Boundaries: “Chase your dreams. Opportunities are endless.”

“Throughout our lives, we sometimes feel our movements are restricted. Whether it is our career, finances, relationship, travel or living arrangements, we need to grow as individuals. But we can only do that by breaking old molds and creating new experiences. There is so much potential within you, but you must be willing to be bold and brave.

Breaking barriers is only possible when you overcome your anxiety about moving past physical and emotional boundaries. While it may be comfortable and less risky to stay where you are, you have more opportunities on the other side of the wall. Having the confidence to step forward onto a new path might be a frightening or an exhilarating prospect. Have faith! For moral support, discuss these avenues and your emotions with close friends and family before making any decisions.

Right now, your soul is asking you to break away from traditional thinking, and to step outside the box to find solutions to the issues you are facing. The universe is encouraging your growth right now by giving you gentle nudges to explore new ideas.

Healthy emotional and physical boundaries are encouraged now. Establish your personal power by creating new boundaries to balance the give and take in relationships and personal connections.

New opportunities will arise, when you are ready to take that step forward. Take advantage of the opportunities when they come. You have the momentum to push forward with success now if you choose to do so.”

Affirmation: “I AM able to create healthy boundaries, supporting my personal growth and potential.”*

~ By Anna Stark

We are being asked to assess what boundaries have been in place that have been stopping us from reaching for our dreams. Boundaries can be a good thing; they can establish personal space and protect our energies, and these should always be in place and be respected. But boundaries can also create challenges and perceived limitations. We are talking about the latter here.

We are talking about a shift in perspective that allows us to see things from a different angle altogether. Like the Hanged Man card, sometimes we need to turn things right upside down in order to see a whole new way of being in the world. Note the image on the card. The man and the woman are able to come up with a solution to climb the wall; a simple ladder… and most importantly, the courage to go through with the plan. They are leaving their simple life for something more magical; the bright light of the castle beckons.

Why keep your dreams small? Why keep yourself small? Why not aim higher? Why not break out of the mold and leave your comfort zone to make your dreams a reality?

“New opportunities will arise, when you are ready to take that step forward. Take advantage of the opportunities when they come. You have the momentum to push forward with success now if you choose to do so.”

Anything is possible, focus your energy wisely.

Namaste

Manifestation

Published January 31, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Manifestation, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark artwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Manifestation, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark artwork by Louis Dyer

Manifestation: “Release control. Evaluate your priorities.”

“The wizard is a symbol of magic and manifestation whose power is activated harmoniously through the mind and the heart. Bridging humanity with the world of spirit, the wizard borrows the power of the universe to direct and enhance energy to a specific task, healing or outcome.

A wise wizard is loving, spontaneous and transparent. With intelligence and an open heart, the wizard is able to help all people, himself included. The wizard does this by harnessing the power that is all around him. Without expectation, the wizard allows the beauty of magic to come through him rather than trying to control and manipulate it. An open and trusting heart is a refined tool of perception.

Right now you have the power to manifest your dreams into reality. With pure thoughts and intention, you can create magic in the world around you. Allowing energy to flow through you with ease and with purpose, you can create a magical life. Learn to share your natural gifts with others. You are here to help humanity in a positive way. Refrain from sharing your personal intentions, now, as they will be easily influenced with other’s distorted energy.

You have the power to create and shine your light upon the world! Examine your thought patterns and energy and amplify your intentions. Positive thought and creativity will bring you closer to your goals, one step at a time. Intentions are everything right now! Focus your attention on seeing the magic in all things including the beauty residing in the darkness. Look towards the stars for guidance. Astrological influences are high now.

Manifest the power of energetic thought and investigate alchemic practices. This will assist you in understanding natural systems such as the elements, nature, medicine, astrology and life’s synchronicities. With the right mindset, you can create and manifest anything!”

Affirmation: “I AM a conscious creator of the energy around me. My heart and mind are unified in spirit.”*

 ~ By Anna Stark

…. so, I wrote a special message for today. But I have wiped it out for something more important to me, I hope you don’t mind. I feel like I need to share something else. Yesterday (well to be completely honest, today as I am writing this in advance as usual…) I was triggered. And I need to get this off my chest.

Someone told me that they feel like my posts are repetitive, inauthentic, cliche (It was even suggested that I don’t actually read what I write. Yes, I know there are typos, I haven’t taken a typing class since grade 7! It is not my strong point, I thought being that it’s free no one would really mind)…. and the very worst part…that I’m coming off as a guru…  Which is pretty much the opposite of everything I have worked for. So it hit me pretty hard to be completely honest. I could dismiss it, but I am sensitive and I am also aware that if it triggers me, and I feel defensive and take it personally, that there must be some fear in there too. I feel like I need to explain my reason for doing this so that everyone understands. Even though I know I don’t actually need to. But I’m human so please hear me out.

So here goes.

I started this blog because I wanted to be of service. I was told right at the beginning, by three people I knew, that no one would read it. I wrote it anyway. I figured that I like writing and I want to help people and what better way to try help wake everyone up to a more spiritual existence, including myself. I wanted to do what no one else was doing at the time… write every day. I use the cards to give me direction, and a visual cue. (I buy hundreds of dollars worth of cards and about six months ago when I was lamenting the cost of the cards and the site itself a friend offered to put a donation button on it for me to help offset costs. It’s definitely helped and I am so very grateful). I kept writing.

I want to keep writing. But I do not want to be a guru. I see a guru as someone who is trying to sell you a way of being in the world that matches their own belief system. It involves a hierarchy, a scheme that you have to buy into. It’s ego based and it generally revolves around money and fame and them being somehow higher up than anyone else in the overall picture. Usually with a bunch of rules you have to live by, or lifestyle choices that you would be judged harshly for not living up to. I am a work in progress. I’m learning as I write this, along with anyone who chooses to read it. I mean to be as authentic as I can, whether I pull it off effectively every day or not. My apologies when I don’t. The messages are often repetitive because, unfortunately, humans don’t necessarily read something once, go make all the necessary changes and immediately move forward with their lives. I’m assuming if they did, they wouldn’t bother reading what I write, they wouldn’t need it. It took me five years to make big and very necessary yet totally terrifying changes in my own life. I needed to work up to it. Maybe it will take someone else less. Maybe I can help to inspire and motivate them. Ideally, Empower them. Or maybe they will do it on their own time regardless of what I write, and maybe I don’t want that kind of pressure anyway.

I cannot guarantee that I will never ever monetize my work, I may need to at some point, but it isn’t my main concern and hasn’t been for the last 4 years or so that I’ve been doing this. I have other ways of making enough money to get by and I am working on my abundance and prosperity, just like you probably are, we are all in this together. If I do go that way one day, I will try to always make sure I offer something complimentary to be of service and try to be as accessible as I am able to be. I already have two other businesses, hair and jewelry. I do hair to support myself and my kids and I do the jewelry for the healing and metaphysical properties of the stones in hopes of helping people to heal, body, mind and spirit. Between the two jobs and the two kids with school and sports and hobbies and play dates, and four pets, we are pretty busy over here. But I make time to write. I take it as seriously as a paid job.

It is not surprising that all this has come up now. It is also not surprising that I’m feeling emotional and on edge with all this lunar madness! We are supposed to be feeling this way, it’s part of the purging, the letting go of the need to try and control. Centering into the heart and letting go of the ego, the self-doubt, the worry and the fear. Breaking down boundaries and limitations. Having faith that you can keep doing what you are doing with love and somehow that it will all work out. That people will see, feel and honour the real, authentic You.

That you are just doing your best with what you have to offer.

So let’s embrace this madness. The Super Blue Moon with a lunar eclipse something that hasn’t happened in our sky for 150 years. How are YOU feeling today? Are you a little off kilter? Did something blindside you? How are you handling it all? It’s a bit of a roller coaster isn’t it!

“Magic and Manifestation; Borrow the power of the Universe to direct and enhance energy to a specific task, healing or outcome…You have the power to manifest your dreams into reality… With pure thoughts and intention you can create magic in the world around you… Intentions are everything right now! Astrological influences are high now. .. With the right mindset you can create and manifest anything!”

So let us collectively let all that old crap GO! All the fear and doubt and worry and anything that is limiting us or holding us back. Including the judgment or opinions of others. Let it all go.

Let’s use this energy to make some positive and lasting changes, even if they are simply shifts in how we see ourselves in the world.

What do you wish to create? It is a question worth repeating every single day, as it brings our awareness to how powerful we really are in creating our reality. In taking responsibility for it. It is an answer that could change, and we must be focused in order to manifest our dreams.

Take this crazy energy and use it to move forward fearlessly. Create with clarity and intention. This is your chance, your window of opportunity. A portal.

Use it wisely.

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening.

Namaste

Rainbow Dragon

Published December 19, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Rainbow Dragon, from the Sacred Power Oracle Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rainbow Dragon, from the Sacred Power Oracle Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Rainbow Dragon: “Be honest with yourself and others. Release your burdens.”

“Floating within the Golden Ascension rays, the rainbow dragon is making you aware of what is required for you to act in truth and honesty. Bringing the vibration from the Golden Ray, the rainbow dragon opens connections to your higher self, the central sun, and angelic and ascended master realms, while centering you in the present.

Through the dragon’s movements, the frequency and vibration of the rainbow spectrum dissipates negative blocks and Karmic debris – but only if you are willing to accept the change required to break down walls and barriers that stop you from moving forward.

Powerful and unstoppable, once you activate your rainbow dragon, prepare for swift and sudden change! Bringing harmony and change in a positive direction, the rainbow dragon is the protector, harmonizer, destructor and creator all in one.

Connecting to the elements, the dragon is here to assist you in raising your vibration and consciousness through the energy of the elements. As the creator of action, you are encouraged to follow your truth with honesty and integrity.

Right now, honesty is required in all areas of your life. When you begin to unburden yourself, you allow yourself to be open to the gifts of the universe. Now is the time to get busy!

Ask the elements for assistance to work through your present issues. Which element can help you in your current situation? Focus on the Rainbow Dragon; which colour are you most attracted to in the card?

Earth ~ Pink and Purple ~ Grounding, nature, practical life-cycles, balance and harmony.
Air ~ White ~ Breath and meditation, clarity of consciousness
Water ~ Blue ~ Accessing and freeing emotion, truth and expression
Fire ~ Red and Orange ~ Finding your passion
Spirit ~ Purple ~ Placing you on your life direction, harmonizing Yin and Yang energies, emergence of one with spiritual law (identifying patterns and rules governing life, creation, awareness and higher frequency.)”

~ By Anna Stark

A special Thank You to Louis Dyer for this amazing artwork… I could look at this spectacular dragon all day long. The colours. The majesty. The power. The perfect alignment of Universal energies. The infusion of colour. All on offer to us now.

Today is my birthday. (I wish I was a bit more excited but as I get older I find I feel more contemplative rather than celebratory.) However, this is the beginning of a new chapter, so a big Yey to that! I AM ready for more. For expansion. For higher awareness. For ascension of consciousness. For more love in my life, more light and more healing. Freedom, adventure, passion and joy. Bring it on! I AM truly ready for transformation on every level.

And you? What do you intend with only twelve days left of this year… the new moon just last night, Winter Solstice in two days and the full moon beckoning us into the new Year? Feel free to share your intentions, dreams and/or desires on my facebook page… writing them down makes them more powerful. Sharing them out there in the world amplifies them. Or if you are more comfortable, write them down at home and place them under your pillow. Most importantly, Be honest. Be absolutely true to you.

For the Highest Good Of All and So It Is

Namaste

Medicine

Published December 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Medicine, from the Sacred Power Reading Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louise Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Medicine, from the Sacred Power Reading Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louise Dyer

Medicine: “Lead by example. Share your knowledge with others.”

“Found in employment, social circles, families, organizations and spiritual groups, leaders nurture, guide and support us through life at all levels and in all situations. People seek out leaders for survival, purpose and achievement.

The ability to heal and work with different energies, and the gift of vision, are the medicine of the shaman, bridging the world of earth, nature, self and spirit. Looking to a leader or elder for guidance and mentorship is essential now. Remember, true leaders empower, direct and facilitate transformation; a false leader, however, can tear down progress, destabilize social networks and create spiritual cults.

Powerful healing energy is around you now. You are strongly connected to shamanic medicine. Journey within the realms to learn and share in the messages from your ancestors. Past life journeys can reawaken your soul’s natural gifts and access your ancestral power to enlighten and illuminate your direction.

Right now you need to harness the power of natural remedies, herbal medicines and natural skin care products. Visit a professional to assist you to support your mind body and spirit. Use complementary medicine in addition to traditional healing methods.

You are a natural healer. You are being asked to utilize your natural talents in the healing arts. Whether for counseling, energy practice, holistic or western medicine, you are encouraged, now, to explore your gifts with purpose. Take a leadership role. You have the knowledge and guidance to heal yourself as well as others. Lead by example. Be humble and graceful in your approach.”*

Affirmation: “I AM a powerful healer. The power of the universe shines within me. I AM a powerful light bringer.”*

~ By Anna Stark

Heal and be Healed, that is what they are telling me now. That is the message, that is what they want you to know. That is the urgent message; one that should not be ignored.

When we heal we become vessels for the healing energies. They flow to us and through us, awakening the ability to heal; in ourselves and in those we wish to assist in their healing journey. We don’t heal them. We heal ourselves and they heal themselves. We merely direct the energy for them, focus it as needed, be the conduit for the shift. Remind them of their incredible power to heal themselves.

Each time we hold the intention to awaken the healing capability in another, we draw it into ourselves. We never have to worry about contracting what ails them, for the energy comes from outside of us, through us and to them to use as they need it. We are not sponges for their troubled bodies, minds or spirits. We can hold space for them as we open to receive and radiate the healing. To us and through us.

It is just the same for healing our great Mother. Draw upon the energies. See them as the blessing they are. Direct them to her. To her waters. To her creatures. To the standing ones. The plants. The people. Come together to create an even more powerful connection. Hold the intention to heal.

Heal and be healed.

Start the circle now.

Namaste

Tree Of Life

Published November 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

“The breath of life is all around us. Self-sustaining, the universal tree of life provides a gateway to connect us to the knowledge of self. You are deeply connected to the universe and the world around you. When you respond to the actions and reactions of the earth and its people, you ultimately decide how you will grow and thrive.

The tree of life requires you to look at your breath and to ground yourself in the present moment. Nature does not concern itself with the future. Plants know exactly what they need to do in any given moment. Living in the present will provide you with more time. Your presence is all that is required right now;  you are strong and resilient. Hold your space!

Where are your roots? Plant and keep your feet firmly on the ground now. Any sudden change may cause instability in your personal life. Dig your roots deep in to earth to to create a firm foundation that you can build from. Are you relying too much on the support of others to help you grow? You have the answers within you to determine your direction of growth, but you must be willing to face your inner self and core beliefs. With solid nurturing and time, you will begin to see results.

Family matters are of concern now. Be open to solutions to achieve the outcome you desire. Be careful with decision making. Compromising too much over an issue will leave you feeling powerless. Like a branch on a tree, growth will occur in an area that supports the core structure or it will break and drop in order to maintain the overall strength of the tree itself. You may need to drop a branch or two to solidify your point of view or to reach a resolution. Patience is key.”

Affirmation: “I AM unified through presence and action. My strength is supported with loving roots.”*

~ By Anna Stark

As above so below. We are all intricately connected; tethered together by the energy of the Universal One. Yet sometimes we feel disconnected or isolated, way out on the end of the branch, struggling, feeling alone and unsupported. Sometimes it is time to come back to our roots, our presence, our own unique way of being an integral part of community.

When we feel isolated, we must be of service and bring out our gifts to share with others. Fearlessly, shamelessly and with as much creative expression as we can muster. It’s too easy to play the wall flower, the victim, hanging back and waiting for life to happen in order for us to participate. We wait for others to make decisions for us, to offer our lives to us in a way that we desire. But we must realize that it is us who is creating every step of the way. And time is passing, faster than ever before; playing tricks with us, spinning away when we aren’t looking.

We must stay balanced, grounded. Put our hearts and souls into what is really important to us. Try our best to turn away from all that distracts us from our true calling. Put the roots of our energy into what means most and allow ourselves to grow up into our potential.

What is it that you wish to create? Where are you putting your valuable energy?

How can you ground yourself in your passion, feel your roots hold you steady while you reach for the stars?

Namaste

Dee
