Daily Angel Oracle Card: Signals, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Signals

Quick Read Message: “You need to make your intentions perfectly clear before acting. Plans, directions, and messages of love, romance, and appreciation must be communicated and understood. Act and act now. Do not waste time.

Outcome: “You will make sure all intentions, both romantic and otherwise, are perfectly clear. Plans and directions, as well as messages of love, romance, and appreciation will be exchanged. Communications will be kept flowing.”

The Dream: “A young woman stands before a fiery rose. Eight other flowers rise heavenward like the puffs of smoke used as smoke signals. The woman has conjured up this beautiful fire by quickly rubbing her hands together until a spark sprang from between them to ignite the rose. This spark symbolizes action and information passing from one place to another, generating light and heat in the process. The fast-moving wands emanating from the smoke signals are traveling both toward the woman and toward her objective. Everything is very direct and in motion, making fast progress. Now is the time for her to indicate swift action; to send and receive messages and signals, whether they are of love or new ideas. She knows that time is of the essence because the flames of romance will not burn forever unless they are fed by mutual declarations of love.”

The Awakening: “Immediate action is called for if the things you wish for are to be attained. Initiate communication first and the answering messages will come back to you. Make that call. Act on that new idea. The time is right to respond to the demands of the moment in the most direct way possible. Messages of love and romance are highlighted. Perhaps it is time to tell someone you love them.”

The Enchantment: “Stand in an open place and light a stick of sandalwood incense. Face North and blow a little smoke in that direction. Turn East, South and West, and do the same. Visualize the signals you want to send or receive, all while you chant: “”Wish to heaven now ascend. Time of waiting at an end.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

This message kind of reminds me of the movie, “Love Actually”… which just happens to be my all time favourite Christmas movie. If you haven’t seen it, I do recommend it, although be warned, it is for an adult audience, and maybe not one easily offended! In the movie, there is a theme where someone professes their undying love to someone else, simply because it is Christmas, and at Christmas, you just have to be honest! I kind of see the same theme here.

It might be time to make your move. This is a message of action. Of doing. Of jumping in where you may have held back. Maybe it’s not about professing your undying love; maybe it is about taking a step forward in manifesting your dreams, starting something new or getting out there. But whatever it may mean to you specifically, it is a call for some extra strength and courage. Plus a little just go for it will you?!?

So what is it that you need to do, today, to get the ball rolling in the right direction? Where do you see yourself going? What do you wish to create? Where are you directing your energy?

It could be that you need closure. Maybe you profess your undying love and it all goes sideways and lets you get on with your life! Maybe you meet someone brand new who knocks your socks off. Or maybe there is something wildly creative that has been calling to you for so long…This is passion, in whatever form suits you best right now.

You know what it is cuz as you read this it keeps popping into your head. Ya, that. Do that.

You got it.

Namaste

Eight of Earth

Published May 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Eight of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eight of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Eight of Earth: “Growth, Manifestation, Accomplishment, Success, Abundance, Wealth, Appreciation”

Key Phrases: “Success, wealth, and love. Do what you love, love what you do. Make plans for the future. A time of abundance ahead. Confidence in a future outcome. Do not rest on your laurels. Money does not buy happiness. Lose the lack mentality.”

Card Meaning: “The Eight of Earth symbolizes success, wealth and love – the manifestations of a positive attitude, doing what you love, and loving what you do.

This is a very optimistic card, one that suggests a time of abundance, fruitfulness, and a good harvest ahead – a peaceful happy home, career, confidence, the respect of your peers. What more could you ask for? All the seeds born of past planting are growing well, and you can be confident that the outcome you need will manifest.

This can also be a good time to think about taking that next big leap, rather than resting on your laurels. You have it within you to go further and reach greater heights, if you so desire – especially if you remain committed to doing everything to the best of your ability.

The Eight of Earth signifies a time to look to, acknowledge and celebrate your successes, and perhaps to start making new plans for the future, as well.”

Potential Blockage: “Do you find yourself looking at life through jaded, cynical eyes? Are you currently blind to the wealth and abundance you already have in your life?

If so, the Eight of Earth cautions you against those thoughts and a failure to appreciate the wealth in your life. It asks you, if you do not see the value of – or appreciate – what you have in the present, how will things be different in the future? If you are only after financial reward or status, you may discover the truth in that old saying, ‘Money does not buy you happiness.’

While it is true that money can sometimes bring more freedom and security, embracing a ‘lack’ mentality will keep you focused on what you do not have, instead of what you do have. Do you want to be rich, or do you want to be wealthy Take a look around you. You might discover that you already possess priceless treasures that, if lost, can never be replaced.”*

 ~ By Ravynne Phelan

So many gifts are available to you now! Do you see them forming in your life now? Or are you stuck in the ‘lack mentality’ of wishing and wanting and not appreciating? Remember, we have been over this many times. Gratitude is key.

Love what you have and love who you are and where you are at right now. This is not the end of the line, it is only a stepping stone on your journey. So much more lies ahead. There is love ahead, prosperity ahead, health and abundance and a wealth of knowledge.

All available to you. All within grasp. All well deserved.

Part of the equation is you appreciating you for the unique and beautiful being that you are. You seeing your own gifts. You shining your light on the world. Not comparing yourself to others, not focusing on what you don’t want by worrying, and not thinking that you don’t deserve to be happy.

This is the whole package, coming your way. Love is in the air. Freedom is yours to choose what you wish to create. Your powers of manifestation are at their highest.

What will you create?

Anything is possible.

Namaste

Gratitude, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gratitude, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Gratitude: “Appreciation ~ Thankfulness”

“The golden spiral within a circle here symbolizes offering prayers of appreciation and gratitude for all of life’s gifts. Spirals represent the purest form of moving energy; therefore, they are a perfect means of expression for sending into consciousness your prayers of gratitude. The priestess figure sits at sunset consciously acknowledging and giving thanks for the glorious beauty all around.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Appreciation brings greater understanding and awareness of the miracles that occur all around us every day. Looking through grateful eyes increases our ability to see beyond ourselves and enjoy life more completely.

Choosing this card brings a message of appreciation from the cosmos to your very own heart. Give thanks for your amazing heart, which moves energy through your body so that you may live in the physical world. Give thanks as you open your heart and develop the intelligence that resides there.

Living with gratitude is part of your sacred path. Appreciation of your own divine nature and that of everything around you will assist you to experience expanded awareness and appreciation for All That Is.

Gratitude is such a simple thing and yet one of the most powerful energies we can engage. Start each day in gratitude and appreciation and see how your world expands. As you move through your day, take moments here and there to connect with your appreciation for the abundance and love that fills your life. Notice how much more beautiful the world appears as you offer yourself the gift of gratitude.

If this card comes to you as challenger: You have slipped into apathy. Look around and rekindle your appreciation for things large and small.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Thank you. Yes, you! For reading this. I so appreciate it, really I do. I have my moments, believe me. I used to worry I wouldn’t know what to write. Sometimes I feel like I just don’t have time for one more thing in my life. And each time I think one of these silly things… a wonderful thing happens. I get a message, or a comment from someone telling me that it helped them. That they heard what they needed to hear. That the messages somehow helped them through a tough time or gave them some insight. And I step back and I let the Angels do their work. Cuz it’s not me, I’m just grateful to be a part of it…

So recently everything I own, well, let’s not play with the Universe just in case… we won’t say everything, we will be specific… my car, my computer, my TV (which honestly I could care less about and probably will not replace) my fridge, the hot water tank and my blender all broke in the last couple of weeks. Seriously. The car was a big one, the transmission blew. Ya, yikes. I am forever grateful to my parents who helped bail me out of that one. The computer too but I’m going to pay it monthly. The blender was a silly one, slipped from my hands and smashed everywhere, the glass part. Not a big deal but the last straw at that moment in time. Lastly, two days ago, my fridge threw in the towel and I discovered the hot water tank was leaking. Sigh… all part of the process right?? So, here I am, also grateful for a new fridge that hasn’t yet arrived and that we get to pretend we are camping by living out of a giant cooler. And the new hot water tank that will provide us with hot baths and showers…(Let’s just throw it out there to the Universe while we are at it that I am also very grateful that I am about to win the lottery to pay for all this stuff!!)

All this on the heals of the worst break of my life so far. My marriage. A family torn apart. Another statistic. But you know what? I’m grateful for that too. I finally get myself back. Starting right now. I get to create and manifest freely. Is it easy? Well to be totally honest, not so far, but I’m trying to work that into my manifestation and it’s getting better, I know it is. Effortless manifestation. Grace and Ease. I believe I will have another chance at love. No games. No manipulation. No cheating. No lies. I’m not settling for anything less than True Love. Co-creation. Sacred Union. Radical honesty and authenticity. Unconditional Love is possible, I have Faith. And for now, I strive to find these qualities within myself and strengthen my connection to the Divine as I heal and become stronger than I have ever been. I also work to love and accept myself unconditionally and affirm that I am worthy of this kind of big love.

To be clear, I am not sharing any of this for sympathy, only to give you a glimpse into my life as I don’t usually write much personally and when it comes to gratitude, that is about as personal as it gets right? Maybe because of all the turmoil I somehow magnetized stuff breaking down into my reality. Maybe I have been subconsciously holding on to the fears that go with being a single Mom and have brought this forward to prove to me that I’m still standing, it’s just material stuff, no big deal. Or, maybe it was time for some things to complete a cycle and move on. Ok Universe, I got it, completion, moving forward, transformation, change, letting go… now can we stop breaking stuff! Geesh! And to think Mercury Retrograde is just beginning! But, alas, maybe it was just to stir things up and make me look at everything differently, from a gratitude perspective. It made me realize that as long as we are healthy and safe and surrounded by love, we are winning, no matter what. When material things are being taken away, I do believe that, although it can be challenging, it’s always good to focus on what you do have and how grateful you are for having it. My kids will always come first.

Moving on to the most important part of my life: I’m grateful for my kids. They are my whole world, really. Two amazing beings that picked me to be their (sometimes frazzled, overwhelmed and frustrated… working on it!….  striving to be eternally patient, but always loving and completely devoted) Mother. Wow, how did I get so lucky.

I’m grateful for my family. We are healthy. We love and support each other. We talk. We get along. I am grateful for that.

I have awesome friends. I am grateful for each and every one of you. Yes, you! Love you!

I have a small hair salon, which is not only my bread and butter, but often my social life! I am so thankful I have this and can work around my kids. I am also so happy that I have my jewelry and my readings and my blog. Full of gratitude.

I’m also grateful for yoga, which has pretty much kept me sane for the last few years and particularly the last few months. I love the studio I go to (Found City shout out) the community and the awesome instructors. And I am so grateful for the opportunity to showcase and sell my crystal healing bracelets, what an excellent opportunity, thank you Owl!

I am so thankful for my lovely apartment that is now painted my favourite colours and looks exactly how I’ve always wanted it to look. (good manifesting!)

I’m grateful for my little black and white dog. A little ball of happiness and love; with tons of personality and a bit of an attitude.

I’m grateful that I have been able over the last couple of years to improve myself by taking my Reiki Masters, Sound Healing, Herbal Apprenticeship Program and Yoga Teacher Training… my toolbag is getting bigger! And I intend to keep adding more tools! And more like minded people to share them with. Community is everything and I feel honoured to be a part of such an amazing one here.

I’m grateful for our Great Mother, Gaia and her abundance of miraculous creations. Every tree, flower, animal and body of water. May we figure out how to repay her for tirelessly providing her bounty. The air, the water, the fire, the ether. The sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, our solar system, the cosmos. Thank you for allowing me to witness and be a part of these miracles. A part of All That Is.

I’m forever grateful to my Angels and Guides, the Ascended Masters, Archangels, Fae, Elementals and Beings of Light who have been working with me and continue to strengthen the connection to the Divine.

Thank you, thank you, thank you…

What are You grateful for? Feel free to share on my Facebook page.  I would love to hear about it!

Love, Light and infinite Blessings,

Dee

Perception ~ Emerald Stone

Published October 13, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Perception

Perception, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman: Perception ~ Emerald Stone

Perception ~ Emerald Stone: “The heart knows what the eyes cannot see.”

The Legend: “A young princess wanders into her untended garden. As she claws through the decaying undergrowth, she finds a brilliant emerald stone. The stone speaks and tells the princess to open an old wooden door. She enters a dark corridor and the door slams shut. Afraid, she moves forward until her hand falls upom another door. It opens to reveal the same garden she left behind; only now it is beautiful, filled with flowers, butterflies, and birds. It is magnificent and familiar.

Inspiration: “Often our journey brings us full circle, leaving us to wonder why things happen. Emerald Stone teaches us to follow through on whatever is before us. Going back is not an option.

Personal Inquiry: “What in my life needs tending? How good will I allow myself to feel?

Key Ideas: “Transformation in the heart; change in perception; the unknown; promise of a richer experience

Key Words: “Beauty, open heartedness, appreciation”

Meditation:

“Begin to imagine the emerald Stone. When you see it, place it in

your ‘untended garden’. Feel waves of Emerald light filling you with courage.

Emerald Stone may have some thoughts to help you. Listen carefully.

When you are ready, see what has changed.”*

– Tori Hartman

There is so much beautiful symbolism in this card! The Emerald Stone, which represents our heart chakra, at it’s optimal; open and radiating bright white love and green healing light. The butterflies, signs of transformation and change, rebirth and possibility. The little green birds; one in a flight of freedom and one in the branch, seeing things from a higher perspective. There is also the darkness behind the door, which she is turning away from and towards the light, bright, beautiful and abundant garden… her palm open to receive her love and abundance. And finally, the purple of her dress, representing intuition and the third eye chakra, the white which represents the crown chakra and the gold, which represents the solar plexis.

This card is telling us to trust our hearts and also our intuition. To trust in ourselves, and know that what our hearts whisper to us is the truth. It speaks of taking flight, of trusting in our own strength and to have an objective perspective. It is telling us to know that our hearts can guide us through the darkness and fear, into the light that awaits us. That we must trust in our path, work to strengthen our connection to our higher selves and that the future is indeed bright and not scary. Finally, it show us that our job is one of action, of having enough faith to listen to our guidance and walk through the door, leaving fear behind once and for all; remaining in a state of allowing. Receptivity is key.

It is time to walk through the door, keeping your focus forward, knowing that you are taken care of. The Universe will provide.

Namaste
