Spirit Dancer: “Self-Expression, Freedom, Exploration”

“The Spirit Dancer understands both sides of self-expression. In the first stage we get our inner vision, feelings, and creative impulse out into the world through our art, whatever that is. Then our expressions are reflected back to us from the mirror of other people’s perceptions, and we discover what our art awakens in them.

First and most important for many of us, we learn, grow, and lead more satisfying lives if we have ways of expressing our inner world. Such expressions can be a way of helping ourselves better understand our feelings and experiences. Or they can be a way of getting pain out where we can look at it and let it begin to heal. Creative expression is a method of exploring our own truth, bringing it into the light so we can see it more clearly , and maintaining sanity. The key words here are explore, experiment, and express. As this faery cryptically remarked to one Oracle reader, “The Death of Spirit Dancer is Perfection.”

Second, creative expression is a way of sharing and letting others see more of our true selves. It is a way that we can reach out from this illusion of separation and reaffirm our essential connections with one another. When we share a dance, a painting, or a poem with others, we do so with the hope that they will see something of what we have put into it and that their experience will echo ours in some way. But if we have done well, we will be able to add something to their experience. At the same time, we understand that their slant on things is a bit different and that what they reflect back to us by their response will perhaps contain something we have not seen about our own experience – a new insight, a different view, an expansion of our picture of reality. So this side of creative expression, the sharing part, enriches us in a different way than the actual creation. I have never written a poem or sculpted something without the experience changing me – and then changing me again when I shared it with others. This is something I have heard many others say, including many who do not consider themselves “real artists” or “real writers.”

Spirit Dancer encourages us to take creative action from our place of personal power, the inner core of true feelings and understanding within us. She wants us to clarify our vision, find the creative potential that lies hidden in paradox, confusion, and chaos, and turn these into a free-flowing, finely balanced, evolving order. She wants to aid us in making our best fantasies real.

She also is very enthusiastic about helping us to learn to dance well with the faeries, if we do not already know how. And if we do know how, she would still be delighted to dance with us just for the fun of it. Step out boldly!”

Starter Reading: “Now is the time to focus and really concentrate on a project or process, especially one involving the creative arts. Spontaneity balanced by self-discipline will  help us to achieve our goals. Strive for elegance and simplicity. This is a time to bring out and share qualities that we have nurtured in private.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Self-absorbed and obsessed, the reversed Spirit Dancer has become entangled in her own unexpressed and perhaps inexpressible fantasies. She feels angry and driven, and may be unable to express her feelings in any way except through destruction. Alternatively, this card may speak of the artist’s block. The cure for that is to just create. Even if the creation falls far short of our goals, even if it is trite, just do it. It is a matter of priming the pump until the waters of creativity, emotion, and inspiration flow freely.”*

With freedom comes a lightness of being, if you allow it. If you allow yourself to fully embrace the freedom that is offered to you now. Can you receive this precious gift? Can you see how things have shifted and changed? Can you feel how you are now fully in control, fully responsible for creating your new reality? You have the gift of renewal, rebirth and re-creation of yourself. Where will you start?

What can you change today to let yourself know that this is real? Can you move your furniture around? Can you let your creative juices flow and make something wonderfully artistic? Wear something bold? Change your appearance up? Whatever you choose, do what feels right for you. The true authentic you. Show everyone how you want to present yourself to the world. Express yourself as creatively as you dare, and get more daring each day!

We cannot experience true joy when we are living by old belief systems, worrying what others will think, or trying to please people. We must step out and put ourselves first. With big open hearts, and open minds. Love all those unique aspects of you, and share them with the world. Doing so will inspire others to join you.

Find your grace, your harmony, your inner peace… and balance it with deep passion, vitality and zest for life. This is the recipe for reinventing yourself and your world. And you have everything you need to get to work and do it!

Go ahead and break the mold.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Creativity and Abundance, from the Guardian Angel Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

Creativity and Abundance: “Dear One, you are being called to action! You are ready to accomplish great things and truly come into the fullness of who you are. It is a time for great creativity, giving birth to beloved projects, or becoming a parent. Follow your passion so that abundance and prosperity manifest for you.”

“This is a call to action! You have shown faith in your dreams, acquired the skills needed to attain them, and listened to the guidance of your angels. Now it is time to step out into the world and accomplish great things! If you show determination and devotion to your plans, then you will be rewarded with abundance and prosperity. Seeds planted now will grow and provide a wonderful harvest! Career opportunities should be pursued with confidence.

This card can also reflect a great love of hearth and home. Questions regarding motherhood, children, or even creative endeavors are often indicated. There may be a desire to surround yourself with beautiful and luxurious things, or a budding interest in becoming an artist.

Additional Meanings Of This Card: A love of nature and gardening. The ability to abundantly create. The perfect time to enact a plan. Pregnancy, or the desire to “give birth” to a dream.”*

~ by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

With each single step we take towards our dreams, the Universe moves towards us in a warm embrace. We are safe, we are loved, we are provided for. But we must take action and believe that we have what it takes to get this party started! We are planting the seeds that will bear fruit in the New Year; very important seeds that are vital to the next chapter in creating our reality.

If there is something that you have been thinking about, or wanting to do; something that gets you out there and even a few steps closer to your dreams, go ahead and take the leap. Just do it! Make the phone call, or send the email, even if it’s just to introduce yourself. Sign up for the course. Send off your resume. Start your own website. List your creations for sale online. Start writing your book, poem, song or screen play. Put yourself out there and get your foot in the door. You will be so glad you did.

Yes, this is a busy time of year, but if you use it to your advantage, it is also full of potential for networking. Get yourself where you need to be, in front of who you need to meet. Ask the Angels to open the doors for you, increase synchronicity and propel you forward.

Take it on like failure is not an option.

Cuz it isn’t.

Namaste

Co-Create

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Co-Create, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Co-Create ~ Essential Meaning: “Creativity; art; inspiration; fruition; manifestation”

The Oracle’s Message: “You may not consider yourself a creative person, but in fact you are creating your reality every moment of  every day via your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, intentions, and actions. Yet you must consider that you do so in partnership with Spirit, Consciousness, God, or whatever name you call your Higher Power. You are a spark of this Intelligence that works through you, nudging you with inspired thought and intuitive guidance. You are a paintbrush that co-creates a beautiful, unique expression of your own individuality blended with universal Spirit. You are a product of Divine inspiration, and now you are aligned with it to create miracles. When you view your life as art, and know you co-create it, only beauty and grace result. Prepare to be amazed.”

Relationship Message: “Connections of the heart serve to inspire you, opening you up to new ideas you would never have come to on your own. You are looking in a mirror held up by this experience and seeing yourself in an unexpected way. Who is this extraordinary being looking back at you? You are going to be so happy that you kept your heart open! Your love is a unique work of art now, the very embodiment of beauty.”

Prosperity Message: “Flashes of inspiration give rise to great success when you receive this message. You are at your most creative now, and whatever you apply yourself to will lead to the fruition of your dreams. Remember that all your ideas are channeled from a higher Source. You create your reality in partnership with Spirit. The potential for manifestation is unlimited now. Revel in its vastness.”

Protection Message: “You are trying too hard to create all that you desire, without the nurturing vital force of Spirit. Perhaps you are in a creative slump – suffering writer’s block – facing a monumental task by unable to decide on your first step, so you just avoid doing anything. Does the world overwhelmed apply to you right now? Why do you think it all has to come down to you? Inspiration means the drawing in of Divine guidance. You must tap into Spirit, not simply yourself. Ask Spirit for inspiration. Two minds are greater than one, so co-create with your Divine partner. Reclaim your partnership with Spirit. Inspiration will flow through you as soon as you get out of your own way.”

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This is the most crucial aspect of our existence; yet we struggle so much to fully comprehend it. Understanding and working with our ability to co-create our reality with the Divine is our most valuable tool for expansion, enlightenment and manifestation. Learning that ultimately, we are in charge. We are responsible. We are powerful. We are free. We create our reality around us through our thoughts, feelings, emotions and expectations.

Again and again I ask… what are you creating? I ask you as I ask myself the very same question. We agreed to come here at a deep Soul level; and quite the mission it is! Agreed to come blind and vulnerable to the dense physical realm. It is luxurious in it’s depth of experience on the senses; it can be confounding for it’s illusion of separation. Yet once we realize how we are so profoundly connected to All That Is, through the Divine power of Source Love and Light. When we feel and learn to trust this connection, we can work with it to find our Soul path… the reason we came here to share our light with the world.

We can lift the veils and remember. Remember our power, our Soul beauty and our deep faith; and use it to heal.

For the Highest Good Of All.

And so it is.

What are you creating?

Namaste
