The Merlin: “Alchemy ~ Justice ~ Balance”

The Messengers Of Avalon

“The Merlin is the messenger of initiation and alchemy and is both the Magician and the High Priest. He is the masculine keeper of magic and has the ability to turn iron ore into gold. The Merlin says, “You have all you need to move forward. Rejoice that all the elements you require for success are, indeed, present!”

You are given notice that, when it comes to your life and its purpose, the magical aspect of the Merlin can be summoned to help you find an answer that is within you. When the Merlin appears, he tells you that justice will be done in all matters of your query, but not by any forceful action. Instead, ask yourself what you need to do to bring balance into your life. Are you working too hard, perhaps overthinking things? Do you have enough downtime?

The answers you seek are not found in obvious places. It is time to go within, through meditation and prayer, and ask the Spirit world of the Merlin’s magical influence to send you signs and omens to help you chart your course. The Merlin says that he will lend you his wisdom and magic on this leg of your journey, until you can claim it as your own.

His message is always: “be in the world, but not of it, and wear it only as a loose cloak about your shoulders.” You will never have to look outside yourself for answers when the Merlin appears. Remember, all signs and omens sent by the Merlin are but reflections of that which is within you already.”*

As the planet shifts, we all shift with her. We are opening ourselves up to more love; more light. Healing. Simplicity. Possibility. Truth. Authenticity. Peace. Compassion. Trust.

We will start to see things from a Soul level, rather than just at face, or surface, value. We will connect deeply with each and every living being, seeing the eternal Divine light within. We will see all as equal, all as valuable, all as worthy. We will cherish this connection, and it will become much more important than the previous emphasis on the material.

This deep connection will create profound joy and fulfillment; spreading slowly but surely around the planet. Filling us with calm knowing; Divine Wisdom. Finally, the peace we have been seeking is found deep within, where it has always been waiting to be discovered.

Connect to The Merlin and connect to your infinite Universal Wisdom. Your own magical Soul self. Know that you too are the alchemist of your own life; able to turn iron to gold with the intention for deep profound change. When The Merlin works with you, look to the elements for signs. They are in the howling of the wind, the twinkling of the stars, the shape-shifting clouds, the crashing of the waves and the undulating of the trees. They are in the sounds in the forest, the babbling of the creek and the swoosh of the ravens wings.

Namaste

Temperance

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Temperance, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Temperance: “She gathers herself, reaches within for the calm center, that place of balance. From her center, she feels the dragon and phoenix stirring. They twine about one another. They embrace in a sinuous twisting of scale and feather until it seems that one melts into the other. They coil around each other in a timeless battle for supremacy, choreographed in an elegant waltz of give and take, push and pull. They swirl about her in a maelstrom that assaults the senses. Like a maestro, she watches over and reins in one or the other when she senses any imbalance so that harmony is maintained.

Earth and sky, fire and water, male and female, summer’s warmth and lush growth and winter’s chill winds bearing down: these opposites flow one into the other in the cyclical and endless push of yin and yang. They are perfectly balanced against one another; in fact, they are given purpose and definition by the existence of diametric opposites.

Without water, fire rages utterly unchecked and all consuming, burning itself out eventually in a terrible conflagration. And without fire, the waters are lightless and drowning, flooding until there is only a still, silent mirror of nothing. By defining each other’s limits, they both become imbued life and become life-giving, tempered to co-exist in just the right balance, for too much of one, and the other will be smothered.”

Card Meaning: “Harmony and equilibrium, balancing of opposites, healing. Moderation of extremes, self-restraint, harnessing absolute forces, and reining the in to be wielded to a purpose. Holding opposites apart from one another denies their power of unity. By drawing them together to merge in a measured fashion, and understanding what one bestows upon the other, a beautiful synthesis can be created. Sometimes all that holds the two apart is a wall of belief. Being flexible and understanding that there is more than one way to perceive the world can go a long way towards breaking down that invisible wall.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Love can come in many forms and if we are going to anchor the energies of the Christ Consciousness back here on Gaia, we must be able to align with and present all of the aspects of love available to us. There is openness and receptivity in love, seeing the Divine connection in each and every living being reflected back to us; showing us our own connection to it. There is acceptance; loving despite where someone is at, what they have done or are capable of. Loving despite the past or the present holds space for them to align with a higher frequency in the future, even the immediate future. Releasing judgment. Releasing fear. Embracing the polarities of our differences; bringing them together in balance.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, finally meeting as equals. Playing their individual roles and also coming together to make something alchemical, powerful and profound. The power of the dragon and the rebirth of the phoenix. With the two energies working together, anything can be co-created.

Open to possibility. Open to co-creation. Open to harmony, acceptance and to receptivity.

It is time to open yourself up to Love.

Namaste

Wholeness

Published July 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Wholeness, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Wholeness, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Wholeness: “Acknowledge the oneness of all life.”

“Recognize that you are part of something larger. You have a connection here, with not only this life and physical body, but with the Divine and the Universe. Ganesha is guiding you to recognize the sacred truth that you are a divine being, here to give and receive love. It is time to recognize your role in this life. You are complete and whole as you are: you lack nothing. The simplest way to win hearts is through your actions.

Green is representative of the forth chakra, the heart chakra. The heart chakra is the center where we experience love. When the heart chakra is open, you are able to create a safe and supportive, loving environment. When the heart chakra is clear and in balance, you will find compassion for all life. You may be more empathetic. You may be able to see the Divine in other people. You will find you are happy and fulfilled because you are fulfilling your Divine purpose in service to humanity. Your sense of self is not limited to the ego, your consciousness will expand, and you realize that to love others is to love yourself, because we are all one.

This card symbolizes peace. You are asked to take a moment and hold the color green in your heart. You may experience a soothing, relaxed feeling that will bring a sense of renewal and self-control. If you are in need of healing, breathe deeply and affirm your health and healing.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

This is a message of the Emerald Green heart healing ray of divine Light. It is the peace that you find when you stop and breathe in the essence of pure love energy from our Great Mother Gaia. It is the energy that heals past trauma across all lifetimes, releasing us from karma and past patterns. It is the energy that we can invite into every cell of our bodies, right into our DNA to heal, activate and transform us, body, mind and spirit.

Things are shifting. You are shifting. Awakening, expanding. Heart opening without fear, without judgment or doubt. Everyone is starting to look familiar, like you may have met them before. Animals are looking different, you can see the intelligence in their eyes. The colours of the flowers are brighter, as is the sun. The natural world can capture you with its eternal beauty. You can feel your deep connection to her. The chaos and distractions of the man made world seem just that, distractions from the beauty of the reality you are manifesting.

Your relationships are shifting too. You are more accepting, more loving. They are more loving too. You can feel compassion for every living being. You can hold space for those who are too toxic to be close to, having released them to learn their own lessons. The world is feeling less frightening. You can rise above the drama. You can give of yourself while remaining free, you don’t need to feel compromised or resentful any longer.

You are raising your frequency beyond any you have experienced before.

You are centered in your heart.

It is safe to invite new love in. It is time.

And so it is

Namaste

Vishnu

Published April 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Vishnu, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Vishnu, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Vishnu: “Balance”

“Rectifying imbalance in your body, mind and soul reduces suffering and pain. The middle path is the best course of action.”

“The Hindus believe that both good and evil exists in the world. This is a natural way of being. When harmony is disturbed, Vishnu appears to maintain balance.

Vishnu, the preserver, is the middle part of the Hindu trinity, between Brahma, the creator, and Shiva, the destroyer. So far, Vishnu has been reincarnated nine times to assist in balancing the powers of light and darkness. These incarnations, or avatars, include those of Rama, Krishna, and Buddha. There is a tenth reincarnation to come, when a hero called Kalki will appear, riding a white horse, to again balance the decline of humanity.

Vishnu, as a supreme spirit, has many attributes, but he is known for his great shakti (energy) and bala (strength). He uses these to keep order in the universe and to subdue injustice and instill harmony. In one avatar Parashurama, he destroyed the warrior castes who were committing great injustices among the ordinary people and sages.

Vishnu is almost always depicted with blue skin and sometimes he rides on his magnificent, bird like mount, Garuda. His partner is the goddess of prosperity, Lakshmi, who sits lovingly with him, often massaging his feet.

Should Vishnu grace you with his presence, know that he is reminding you to find balance in all things. Admittedly, this is hard; we live in a time where seeking balance seems to be at the top of everyone’s list, but first we must be aware of our imbalance! This is where Vishnu asks us to start – with awareness.

Where can you actively seek more harmony and peace? What small or large steps can you take to correct the imbalance for the good of all  – including yourself?”

Shadow Side: “Trying to balance social life and study, duty and freedom, indulgence and simplicity is almost like walking a tightrope. Vishnu invites us to be aware of our imbalances and to seek to correct them. Often the imbalances we aren’t fully aware of – until they give us pain, that is – are the ones we truly need to change. For example, imbalance can manifest as loss of focus, illness, weight issues, bad habits, patterns of low self-esteem, lack of prosperity, and addictions.”

Symbols of Vishnu: “conch, wheel, lotus, bow and arrow”

Invocation: “As with all Hindu gods, there’s a living, breathing tradition to draw upon, so there are many wonderful invocations and chants to be found. I like the following small chant that I learned while in India.

Sit cross-legged or kneel on the ground. Place your left hand, palm upturned, on your knee, and your right hand turned down upon your other knee. Imagine taking in energy from your left hand and grounding it with your right, perfectly in balance.
Say:
‘Lord Vishnu, I feel your balance,
To my left,
To my right,
Above me,
Below me,
Everywhere you are,
I am.’

Repeat this over and over while imagining the shakti (energy) flowing in and out, up and down, through you and around you, in perfect balance.

When you feel balanced, centered, and completed, stand and bow to the north, south, east and west.
Say:

‘I thank you, Lord Vishnu,
for balance in my world and the next.”*

~By Stacey Demarco

The news of the world could quite literally drag us under. It creates a vortex of negative energy, like a black hole. It can be challenging to maintain personal balance amidst the chaos, yet this is exactly what we must strive to do. It is, quite literally, vital to our very existence.

Bombs are being dropped. Weather patterns are changing, becoming more ferocious… this is only the beginning of this phenomena. There are crazy things happening all over the place. It is quiet overwhelming. Add in our own personal drama, worries, obligations and responsibilities, and we have some very heavy energies to deal with.

So what to do about it all? How do we save the world? What can we do about all this?

All we can really do is find ways to incorporate peace into our own lives, moment by moment. Find ways to incorporate joy, passion, love and harmony into each and every day. Find ways to raise your own vibration and thus raise the vibrations of those around you.

Be the love, joy, peace, harmony and passion you wish to see in the world. Avoid the black hole as much as possible. Do not get sucked in to the fear. Meet it with Light. Fill your heart with love despite the chaos.

As much as you can; no pressure, no doubt, no self-judgement.

Just love. Infused into as many moments of every single day as you can.

Namaste

Alchemy

Published April 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Alchemy: “Once Starseed has experienced and understood the true significance of transition from one state of being to another, she or he explores the the alchemical process of transmutation, where by elements are combined to create new forms.

While the ancient alchemists were supposedly attempting to change lead to gold, their higher purpose was in transmuting the dense, physical body into the spiritual light body of the enlightened soul.

The Alchemy key employs the magical process of glass blowing, where by the four primary earth elements of air (the breath for the glass blower), water (dripped from above to cool the glass), fire (melting the glass), earth (the silicates that, melted, form glass) are are combined to create the new form: a beautiful blown glass sphere.

Let us not forget that the consciousness of the artist, the focused intent, is the primal ingredient or impetus in this process of transmutation.

The Alchemy key is rich in meanings and can be interpreted at many levels. On the one hand, it is about blending different elements, with patience and skill, to create a desired outcome or new form. On the other, it speaks of balancing aspects of our lives in order to move forward. For some, it is a key to spiritual healing, building from the previous key of death versus immortality and how we learn from our grief and fear when we embrace our own infinity.

Words associated with this key are chemistry, temperance, mixing, blending, combining, merging, experimentation, synthesis.

What elements can I bring together to create a new perspective? How do I balance various aspects to bring harmony into my life? What is the right blend of ingredients for the situation at hand? Do I have the patience to keep working until I find the solution? What is my vision for what I am trying to create, and how do I plan to achieve it? Do I have balance in my heart, soul, and mind?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Again we are brought a message of Alchemy. Turning lead to gold. This is the process of ascension, releasing the old, dense, third dimensional reality and embracing the new, higher consciousness of the fifth dimensional Being. It’s all about perspective… shifting, molding, transforming our reality from the inside out.

There is a call to simplify our lives; get back to nature, reconnect on a personal level. Walk the Earth. Look into each other’s eyes. Limit technology. Meditate; Listen. Get back to the old ways. This is how we reconnect to our Great Mother Gaia. This is how we awaken and expand our consciousness. This is how we shake off the programming and reactivate who we really are. We align with our Soul Purpose, stepping off the hamster wheel and onto the journey of our lives.

Namaste

Two Of Earth

Published March 22, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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

Two Of Earth: “Equilibrium, Flexibility, Adaptability, Balance, Harmony, Compromise, Confidence, Procrastination, Freedom”

Key Phrases: “Balancing work and play. Balancing responsibility and personal needs. Be open to compromise. Be confident buy grounded. Realistic goals and expectations. Take stock and prioritize. Forgive your limitations. Ask for help.”

Two Of Earth Card Meaning: “The Two Of Earth card symbolizes the importance of balancing work, home, family, and play, whilst remaining flexible and adaptable in meeting one’s commitments and responsibilities.

You are filled with a  sense of purpose. You have goals and dreams. Nurture them. Be willing to do what is needed in order to make them manifest, but do so with mindfulness and the awarness that all you do has an impact on those around you.

Be confident. Trust in both yourself and your abilities. But also be flexible, adaptable, and open to compromise.

Self-belief is the key to maintaining a healthy equilibrium. If you believe that you can achieve your goals and meet your responsibilities at the same time, then there is a good chance that you can. But ground your self-confidence in reality, realizing that you are not superhuman or perfect. There is a limit to what you can do and achieve without burning the candle at both ends. Be aware and respectful of your physical, mental and emotional needs.

Forgive your limitations; ask for help, and share your responsibilities if you need to – before you start to drop things because you are mentally, physically and emotionally worn out.”

Potential Blockage: “Stress, anxiety, fatigue, failure to manifest desired outcomes, an inability to focus, neglect of self and others – all these are symptoms of being overburdened and overwhelmed.

Too many responsibilities and goals can result in your feeling overwhelmed and weighed down. Distraction, procrastination, and the failure to meet commitments may create conflict with those around you.

An unwillingness or inability to focus on what is truly important will manifest in less than desirable outcomes.

When the Two Of Earth appears as Challenger, it represents a need to take stock, and to prioritize. It is time to decide what it is that is truly important to you, and put all else aside. If you do not, you may lose the very things that matter the most to you.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

How many things are you juggling right now? And how does it make you feel? Are you grabbing every opportunity, setting goals and going after them? Or are you spread too thin, getting stressed and feeling overwhelmed? How we deal with what is in front of us is up to us. How we feel about how much we have on our plate right now determines whether or not we are in alignment or scattered.

If you are full of energy and putting your plan into action, keep doing what you are doing! This is the ideal space to be in, one of creative action and mindful manifestation. Be aware of where you put your energy and what you say “yes” to… keep your boundaries firmly in place and do not stray off course. There may be a time when you have to say no to someone regarding what they think you “should” do for them. It is OK to stick to your guns and politely decline, your projects need you now more than ever.

If you are feeling off track, or that you have too much going on, this is an indication that you need to set up some clear boundaries for yourself, your time and your energy. No one can do this for you but you! Take stock of everything you feel you must accomplish and clean house… decide what stays and what gets delegated to others. Ask for help if you need it, you do not have to go this alone. As soon as you bring things into balance, you will find a renewed energy and you can again pick up the pace. this time using your energy and focus to create what is truly important to you. For the Highest Good of All.

Namaste

Sobek and Horus

Published March 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sobek and Horus, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sobek and Horus, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Sobek and Horus: “Reconciliation of Opposites; Forgiveness and Understanding”

“Sobek and Horus represent two powerful opposing psychic forces found in all human beings – the old and the new parts of each of us. They appear together as adversarial allies to hep us reconcile opposing forces and create harmonious, balanced union within.

The crocodile god, Sobek, represents strength and fortitude, fertility and rebirth. From Sobek, we inherited the reptilian brain that contains the ancient evolutionary patterns. It rules the autonomic functions that have kept us protected to grow forward.

Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris. In this oracle he comes into maturity and prepares to step into his full power as the enlightened ruler. All pharaohs are called Hours. As a hawk headed diety, he is associated with higher mental and spiritual functions.

If you have drawn this card, it is time to take a deeper look at the energetic desire to evolve while stepping into a new way of being. You may experience a sense of conflict from the old self. In truth, it is willing but needs to know that what is of value will not be lost and that mistakes will not be repeated. This is an opportunity to take stock of the newer self that wants to evolve and step forward, and of the old self that wants to make sure you have a solid foundation to stand on.

Drawing this card indicates that resolution is afoot. If there is a conflict in your life or something in the way of your forward or upward motion, meditating with these two seemingly opposing forces can bring you to a deeper understanding of a relationship or situation. It can also open the way for forgiveness. If you bump into that part of yourself that is closed to forgiveness, stay open: it is one of the most potent keys for resolution.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

The only way to truly move forward is to release all the old. Old thought patterns and conditioning. Old ways of thinking and of being in the world. This may involve great changes, releasing people and situations; even moving house,  changing jobs or going in a completely different direction.

In order to do this, you will have to forgive those who were placed in your life to teach you lessons that have made you uncomfortable or caused you any pain or trauma. This is not always easy to do, yet if we don’t release them from the grip of our pain, it is us who eternally suffer. It does not mean that you condone the behaviour, it means that you forgive and move on so that you do not attract these same patterns or lessons any more. You are done with all that.

See yourself standing in front of the person you need to release. If there are more than one, then do one at a time. Look this person right in the eye and tell them: “I forgive you, I release you.” Then feel yourself quite literally sprouting wings and spreading them wide. See yourself fly right through the sacred space created by Sobek and Horus on the card image as they hold safe space for you. Look up and see yourself fly high above the person you are releasing, looking down upon them standing there alone, getting smaller and smaller as you soar high above. Allow yourself a couple of deep breaths and take in the idea that you are now completely free of this burden you have been carrying. You are light, you are free and you are able to detach from all the drama that this person has caused you. You never have to fly back down to them and experience this pain again. If you choose to have this person stay in your life, set the intention that your relationship with them will start anew, with you being fully empowered and you will never lose your freedom to them, or anyone else, ever again. Know that Sobek and Horus will always provide this safe space for you to forgive and release all those who are holding you back in your life or causing you any pain.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
