Daily Angel Oracle Card: Archangel Michael ~ Protection, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Maroony

Archangel Michael ~ Protection:

“For He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways.”
~ Psalms 91:11

“Archangel Michael is dedicated to the preservation of the spiritual destiny of every soul. He loves you with an intensity you cannot yet imagine as he patiently watches you, life after life, fanning the flickering embers of your soul fire on the altar of your heart, until the flame of enthusiasm and love of God burn brightly enough to consume your limitations and set you free!

As the Great Prince, Michael’s territory includes all who know that our kingdom is not of this Earth. To guide us Home, he is consecrated to attacking the evil within while challenging us to transmute negative energy into positive channels of peace, love and beauty. If the importance of your spiritual path is constantly expanding, you are working with the energy of Michael.

Michael’s ‘fire’ is much more than just an expression. The spiritual aspirant is literally burning away self-imposed limitations that surface as pockets of emotion triggered by the events of life. When you face the truth, you often feel the heat and burning of this fire. For example, the passion of anger can become an effective force for change. Accept it and feel hot, enraged, empowered! As you open your heart, the rage id transformed allowing you to seek loving solutions. Michael watches over the expansion of your soul light until you have purified yourself of karma and limitations. Each time you use opportunities to transform unwanted events, you destroy more of your false ego or small self. Michael lives for the day when you step free as your Eternal Self. His goal is the salvation of us all to once more become a loving community.

In addition to protecting our spiritual destiny, Michael also protects our bodies. Call Michael to be your champion in adverse situations, to give you courage and protection. At your final passing, Michael weighs your soul. The love-essence that you have gathered whirls up to Heaven, light as a feather, while the heavily laden ego falls. This ego draws you back for life after life until you are ready to face Michaels’ fire of transformation. If you seek freedom from rebirth, do not wait until the time of your death. Call for Michael now to guide you toward the awareness of your Eternal Self.”*

Music: “Palestina, Missa Papae Marcelli, Steel Bars”

~ By Kimberly Marooney

When I feel like I need extra protection I invoke this most powerful and awe inspiring Archangel. Michael is always willing to assist, blazing sword in hand. To me he is enormous, taller than the trees, a massive presence that fills my space with peace, strength and security. I ask him to clear my house, dissolving any cords between myself and others that are not of the Light. I ask that he purges myself, my space, my home and property with his violet vacuum, removing every particle of low vibrational or dense energies. He swiftly removes any hooks, cords, entities, attachments or implants from myself, my space and property, and by the grace of God and Source Energy, from my children, pets and family. He then purifies our auras, filling any holes or spaces with pure white light. Lastly he casts a protective shield or cloak around us all, including our space and right out to the edges of our property. I also ask him to place mobile shields around us for when we leave the safety and security of our high vibrational living space.

I ask this of Archangel Michael now; for myself and my family, today and every day to be purified, protected and shielded. And every time I ask it is done, with Unconditional Love. I am eternally grateful for the security this gives me; the peace of mind. Knowing that I am not vulnerable to the low vibrational energies and entities that may try to latch onto me or my loved ones. I know that I am always safe, always protected.

As are you. All you need to do is ask.

Thank you, Archangel Michael for watching over me today and every day. Keeping me and my loved ones and my home and property safe and protected. I am eternally grateful for your Love.

And so it is

And just for fun, one of my favourite depictions of Archangel Michael by artist Corey Wolfe:

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ten Of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Ten Of Pentacles: “This is a card of prosperity that leads to happiness with home and family. The supportive family environment offers emotional and financial security. As an undertone in this card, there is heritage in the sense of family continuity that may be manifested as money or goods passed along through the generations, as with heirlooms, traditions, or stories. This card also indicates accumulated wealth bringing stability and ongoing contentment to the family. The timing of this prosperity may be in middle life rather than something one is born into, showing that finances have been carefully handled to ensure future security and provide for the needs of the family, perhaps as investments or savings for the education or vocational training for the children.

Another aspect of this card is that of buying or selling a house or property, refinancing the property, or spending money on redecorating or making repairs. It can also imply an extended family dwelling together, perhaps three generations under one roof, or a family providing for the care of other family members. Depending on the surrounding cards, this card could indicate a change of location, such as selling one house and buying another. While it is generally an auspicious card, there may be other issues concerning possession of the home if there are other cards in the spread that relate to legal matters or inheritances.

Cowslip, for prosperity, beauty, and protection, grows along the garden wall. A kingfisher, a symbol of prosperity, harmony, and happiness, is perched on a branch, gazing into a pond.”

Meaning For The Ten Of Pentacles Card: “Prosperity for the home, buying, selling, redecorating, refinancing, making home repairs, favorable placement, good investments, fruitful marriage, stability, legacy, family heritage, heirlooms, traditions being passed to the next generation, contentment, supportive family environment.”

As Challenger: “Disruptions, family quarrels, problems with a legacy, loss of inheritance, gambling”

Prompt Words: “Prosperity for the home”*

~ By Ann Moura

If money has been an issue lately, let that feeling of lack go completely and feel into trust. Trust that the Universe is providing for you. Know that there is money flowing to you, and through you. You are an important part of the economy, and you will be able to receive and also to give freely. Know that you deserve this prosperity, and that you can use it for your own life and loved ones; and that you will also be helping others. You help others by contributing to their success as you spend money in their shops or businesses; this would be a very good time to commit to purchasing from locally owned and operated “mom and pop” stores rather than the big box conglomerates.

You may receive an heirloom or inheritance of sorts, possibly in the form of an investment or buyout, valuable information, money, jewelry, or trust fund. Whatever it is, it will assist you to release the worries and pain that you may have experienced in the past regarding money and security in your life. It may not be a huge windfall, but it will be exactly what you need, when you need it.

Know in your heart that you can ask for what you need. Consult your angels and guides, tell them what you desire and then move forward, knowing it will come to you. Release the habit of focusing on what you don’t have or can’t see in your current reality, for this is an old way of thinking which no longer serves you.. (and never did!). Know that you are always supported, protected and provided for as the Divine child that you are.

Affirmations:

“I Am Loved, I AM Supported, I AM Provided For

I gratefully accept gifts of love, abundance, and prosperity today and every day.”

And so it is

Namaste

Grace

Published December 15, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Grace: “Ancient cultures throughout the world revered those who were exceptionally gifted or beautiful as manifestations of God’s grace on earth – a link between the divine creator and humankind. Today we call such people “stars,” but what we really revere is their celebrity and fame rather than their individual qualities. To be a true star, however, is to radiate well-being and an attitude that says “I feel at home with myself and with the world.” Everyone, in this sense, has the potential for stardom; it is our birthright, regardless of our physical appearance, social standing, abilities, or the whims of fashion.

Despite what the cult of stardom would have us believe, real beauty and the grace that surrounds it is never contrived. It is a luminosity that emanates from within, ephemeral and ageless, a natural glow that arises from living a balanced life. Like the lotus blossom that appears above the muddiest of waters, the lifelong challenge we face is to transform the dark and the difficult into light, fragrance, and ultimately, the flower of consciousness.

Beauty and our perception of it manifests in myriad ways. For a scientist, it might appear as a flash of clarity when one of the mysteries of the universe reveals its hidden design. For a painter, it could be in the interplay of shifting color or light and shadow in the landscape. A composer might hear music in the night sky or in sunlit waters. The creative impulse in us springs from those moments of grace when all the divergent elements of life seem to harmonize perfectly; when, everywhere we look, we perceive the brilliance and mystery of a masterwork that transcends the knowable. Our expressions of creativity are essentially an homage to the Tao.

Awareness of beauty is inextricably bound with a sense of impermanence. Everywhere in nature beauty is born, fades, and returns again to beget beauty, in a continuous, creative unfoldment. We create many problems for ourselves by wanting to demystify and possess beauty and grace, to reproduce an essentially ephemeral experience and make it permanent. When all efforts fail, as they inevitably must, we become stuck in an impossible longing to re-create what was lost through some contrivance of our own. If we can manage to withdraw from this desire to grasp and possess, the experience of grace becomes a source of inner nourishment that deepens our aesthetic pleasure and joy in life.

Learn simply to greet beauty when it comes, to reflect upon it and become one with it, with no demands or expectations. Contemplate beauty and allow it to infuse your life; you will be beautified by it, and an aesthetic sense will naturally arise within you. Recognize that beauty is fleeing; meditate on the transitoriness of all things, which will kindle in you the desire to be aware in every moment and to give life’s beauty some form of expression. This moment is an invitation to shine and to give of your best, graciously and wholeheartedly. Let your model be Mother Nature, whose elegance and generosity knows no bounds, and whose capacity to beautify is never less than perfect. The beauty of nature is love.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

Are you seeing the beauty around you in everyday life, starting with your own? Or are you putting it off, waiting for the stars to come into perfect alignment first, waiting until you lose weight first, waiting until you meet the love of your life first? What if you committed instead to seeing every tiny detail of beauty in every aspect of yourself and your external life? What would that look like? What could that feel like? How would it change your life to feel gratitude and peace whenever witnessing the grace of the Universe and Mother Gaia?

When you train yourself to mindfully see the abundance of beauty around you, and its ultimate vulnerability, you start to cherish its tenuous delicacy and elegance. You start to appreciate it more. You slow down and enjoy it’s allure. It feels like a gift… and rightfully so.

On the contrary, if you take all the exceptional beauty around you for granted, and refuse to see your own unique beauty, you block yourself from receiving the Love that you deserve. Life becomes two-dimensional, black and white. There is less to look forward too, less to linger on, less to appreciate. When we shift that perspective, and focus on what is beautiful and wonderous in our lives… that is when we attract more magic.

See and Be the beauty that stars in your own life.

Be the grace that you are.

Namaste

The Spaces Between The Worlds

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Spaces Between The Worlds, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

The Spaces Between The Worlds: “When we look for guidance we often look for words that clarify, reassure and help us find our authentic path through the chaos. Yet there is also guidance in the spaces between the worlds, between each letter, between all the happenings in our lives, where there is nothing to be said, where there are no lines to be coloured in, where there is just openness. Those are the times when we need to freestyle! We need to do or not do, based on what is happening for us right in the moment. Often there is far less to do than we think. Often we do not need to think! There is a space forming around you now. Sometimes when we sense this subconsciously we feel exhilarated and excited, anxious and nervous, and not even sure why. There is a sense perhaps that we would not mind having a map of this unknown terrain. Or perhaps we are happy to wing it, and make it up as we go along. Either way, there is space to just be – it is a receiver for the divine presence. If you have a lot of space, of unknowing around you now, or within you, then just know that there is a lot of divine presence to be received. It can’t be explained really, it happens between the worlds and yet without it, there would not be any words, any guidance at all.

The oracle speaks to you – enter the space and let go, for your time to receive it is upon you.

Be blessed.”

~ by Alana Fairchild

“Day Birth

The Eastern rise of time

On new born wings

Bursts out across the lifeless crowd

And sings its climb to heights unknown

Of beauty warmth and power upon its throne

To fade again in Western sky

And only for a moment lie

Before it takes its course again

To breathe once more in heart of man.”

~ By Richard Cohn

There is a space between breaths; between heartbeats. A space between thoughts. A space between musical notes. There is a stillness before the wind comes; and a split second between the waves pulling back and coming crashing back to shore. There is a space between the moments when a bird flaps its wings then soars. There are spaces between the clouds; between the petals on each flower. There are spaces between the licking flames of fire and there spaces between the stars.

These are sacred spaces; they are filled with Love and magic and light. They are the shimmer of the dimensions, of possibility, the magic of Divine creation and infinite blessings.

It is up to us to fill these spaces with gratitude, awe and reverence. Use them to connect us to the ancients; our ancestors, our ethereal benevolent guides and light beings. The Source of endless Love and Light. We can use our imaginations to dream miracles into existence and plant their seeds in these spaces with faith and trust. We can fill them with prayers. With intentions for the very highest good of All.

Wherever we look we will find them. And when we do, we will realize that they are the thread that holds us all together. A part of something much bigger.

An integral part of the Universe.

And so it is. And always has been. Throughout all time and space.

Namaste

Tiger Lily, Tiger Nautilus

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Tiger Lily, Tiger Nautilus, from the Myths and Mermaids Oracle Card deck, by Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto

Tiger Lily, Tiger Nautilus:

“Oh, Tiger Lily!

My goddess, my grace

A vision like you stops a soul in its place

Such queenly compassion

Such posture and poise

Lets me know in an instant

You are unlike the boys.

So supple, symmetrical, shapely and smooth

Such balance and ease in the way that you move.

Your smile is of mercy,

Your manner of tact

Your beauty’s apparent in each tender act.

What love and kind charity shines on your face.

Oh, Tiger Lily!

My goddess, my grace.”
A graceful young woman, bedecked by bright tiger lilies, tenderly holds the shell of a tiger nautilus close to her bosom. Her choice of adornment is reflective of her feminine beauty and elegant style.”

Divination Message: “Embrace Your Femininity: The feminine power is a radiance that shines from women and girls who are securely anchored within their bodies and souls. Full of tenderness, love, beauty, and grace, the feminine power is soft yet strong. Now is the time to welcome this power – it is your right to be beautiful, inside and out! Awaken the queen inside you and let her blossom.”

Not a woman? Not a problem. Look for opportunities to get closer to a woman in your life, be it your mother, sister, lover or wife. Try looking through her eyes to help you get in touch with your feminine side and allow her spirit and compassion to influence some upcoming decisions.”

Antithesis (If this card comes to you as Challenger): “Own Your Masculine Side: Now is the time to take control and be assertive. Take some risks towards your ambitions! You have the courage and strength to do what you have always wanted to now is the time to do it.”*

~ by Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto

The Divine Feminine calls us… It is time, Dear One, to awaken the Goddess energies within. Tune into your intuition and see what it is telling you… have you been listening to your heart? Our Great Mother calls to us to reconnect to her Divine Loving energies.

How are you perceiving yourself these days? Are you appreciating yourself? Are you accepting of how you present yourself in your physical body in this lifetime? Are you gentle with the rhythms and cycles of your body and emotions? Unconditional love and acceptance starts with you. It is about showing compassion, forgiveness and love to every part of who you are, blessing how far you have come, and dedicating yourself to a more profound existence.

We are being called to bring out the innate healing wisdom and light within each and every one of us, male and female alike. But we are being guided to do it with our feminine sides. Our healing, nurturing and receptive sides. We are being asked to participate in the ascension of this amazing planet and all of her beings. Are you ready?

Every day you are being called to bless her. Every day sending her love and light. Every day appreciation and every day changes that will assist her when she needs it most. All of us together, the collective consciousness working as One. We can lift her as we lift ourselves.

These are magical and powerful times.

And so it is,

Namaste

Oshun

Oshun, from the Goddess Oracle, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Oshun, from the Goddess Oracle, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Oshun: “Sensuality”

“Oh let me delight you with beauty

so the eye may dance with joy

let me seduce you with scents

so that your nose inhales pleasure

let me tantalize your taste

till your tongue quivers

let me caress you with sound

that makes your ears sing and sing

let me touch your body

with waterfall music

and adorn your beauty with

golden bracelets and honey and perfume

and when all is experienced

when all your senses have been given play

when your spirit from the stars connects in a blissful way

with your body from the earth

then you will know sensuality.”

Mythology: “Oshun (pronounced oh-shun’), the Brazilian Macumba Goddess of the waters – rivers, streams, brooks – is known for her love of beautiful things. She loves to adorn herself, especially in yellows and golds. Her rites at watery places include honoring her with honey ad pennies (copper). Her necklace of cowrie shells symbolizes her knowledge and power in divination. It is said that the women dedicated to Oshun carry the special gift of their Goddess. They walk and dance in the most tantalizing and provocative ways. In their walk is the flow of the river. None can escape their charms.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Oshun appears seductively in your life and cajoles you into remembering and honoring your sensuality. Wholeness is nourished by focusing your attention and time on your body, respecting and giving play to your senses and your sensuality. Oshun is here to tell you that it is time for sensuality. She invites you to follow her lead.”*

~ by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

We came here to the physical realm to experience the beauty of our interaction with Gaia, the spirit who incarnated into this era as the Earth, and all of her creations. She offers us an abundance of miracles to experience; and we are one of those miracles while encased in this body of flesh. For every ailment she provides us with a cure; if we can take the time and effort to find it. If we are hungry, she generously offers us food. She provides us with water; do we bless it every time we are blessed enough to use it? Colour therapy is available to us in every moment, from the calming blue of the ocean or sky, to the uplifting vibration of a bright flower. Her magnetic grid can realign our chakras, meridians and energy centers; but we must touch our bare feet to her to benefit. Will we take the sacred time to do so? Her trees offer us life giving breath, as well as shelter and comfort. Are we remembering to express our deep gratitude? Are we laying on hands and giving love, a heartfelt hug or an alignment of our spines along a trunk?

Oshun is here to remind us of the sensuality of Being. Of experiencing everything as the miracle that we may take for granted. The ability to breathe fresh air. The feeling of our toes in the sand or in the water. The brilliance of a bush in full glorious bloom just waiting to be noticed. Desiring to heal. That is living in the present. That is experiencing the gift of life. The beauty, the sensuality, every sense lit up. The acknowledgment and the gratitude to keep the cycles going. Giving back to what sustains us.

Miracles, in a simple exchange of Love and Light.

And so it is.

How lucky are we to be here, experiencing this? As lucky as we decide we are; that’s just how it works.

Namaste

Osiris

Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Osiris: “Regeneration ~ Transmutation ~ Beauty”

“Osiris is the enlightened ruler and husband of Isis who was murdered by his brother, Set. Through the love and magical practices of Isis, he was revived sufficiently to transmit to her the seed of Horus. He had previously fathered Anubis with Isis’s sister, Nephthys.

In Egyptian mystery teachings, all beings strive to awaken as Osiris. The purpose of scriptures such as the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which is actually the Book of Coming Forth by Day, is to guide souls through the transitions of death, as well as the transitions of the shamanic rites of passage through death and the Underworld.

Although Osiris has long been associated with death and called the Lord of the Underworld, it is more appropriate to acknowledge him here as the archetypal regenerative principle that transmutes outworn, deteriorating form into its renewed, shining manifestation of beauty. Osiris can be found in the primordial, watery deep, and in the river itself. He invites us to let go and rest upon his earthly green chest as he wraps his supportive arms around our bodies and turns us into that which we are in the process of becoming.

If you have chosen this card, you have been asked to enter deeply into the process of transmutation and regeneration. You are being given the opportunity to experience death of the old consciously and to embrace the beauty that is possible for each of us to experience as we are reborn into the next level of our potential.

Things are changing in your world, and it can be an exciting time. Regardless of what is happening around you, take time to be quiet, and listen for the whispers from Osiris that come from the deepest recesses of your being. He will speak to you of possibilities, potential, and beauty. Feel the stirrings of regeneration within you when you commune with him.”*

~ by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

It’s up to us whether we let change knock us down or lift us up. It can be terrifying, our fears reducing us to feeling like children, searching for help and advice with every step. Or we can gather our strength and decide to shift our perspective and embrace change with grace and ease, trusting in the Universe that everything will work for the highest good of all.

Surrender to the change and find peace in the moment. No matter how chaotic your world seems right now, take some time to be outside and breathe fresh air. Communicate with Mother Gaia, put your spine against a big, supportive tree. Ask for signs from your Animal Spirit Guides. Eke out a few minutes of silent contemplation or meditation every day. Incorporate yoga and deep breathing. These simple measures will help you to retain your balance and find your center not matter what is happening around you, it just might help you to stay sane in the eye of the storm.

Most importantly, release any and all old, limiting thought patterns and need to control.

Change is in the works and cannot be stopped. 

However, it can be calmly navigated.

Moment by moment.

Breath by breath.

Namaste
