Diving For Light:” How brave you are You are diving for light. It can be so much simpler to seek light in the heavenly, in that which is blissful, sweet, loving and kind. To look for the light in that which is dark is an advanced task that only a rebellious and brave heart will attempt.

You may not feel that you have taken such a journey by choice. Yet you have taken this wise challenge on from deep within your soul. Your innermost being has evoked this situation in your life with the intention that you grow in power, wisdom and creative juice. It also wants you to experience a bold and fearless trust in life and become further empowered to live it with zest and courage.

The oracle of Diving For Light speaks of a time when you are called into the darkness through life circumstances, situations, relationship challenges or inner struggles that defy clear understanding. That darkness might be a creative block, a sense of being in a void or feelings of depression, rage, sadness, fear or anxiety. There may or may not be an obvious cause. The darkness might be generally accepted and socially acknowledged because there is a socially acceptable or obvious reason for it – such as a death, divorce or retrenchment. However there may be no obvious justification for your experience of darkness. You might not need a ‘reason’ to be able to accept it, likewise you may struggle to find an unconditional acceptance of your experience. Just know that you are actually on track and right where you need to be.

Our creative process and our spiritual path go through a similar ‘turning of the wheel’ progress. There is spring and summer, in the seasons of our soul, as well as in the earthly ones. There is the autumn harvest and there is the death inherent in winter, when energy is concentrated and pulled within to seek out the darkness where it can rest, regenerate and simply be, until the time is right for new life, energy and creative inspiration to burst forth.

When diving for light, one must be willing to bear the darkness and understand it has a purpose, much like winter does upon the earth. It is not in error or through lack of consciousness that you are here now. It is testament to your spiritual growth and creative process, not a sign that they are lacking or stalling. The healing process below will help you with your inward plunging and to successfully navigate it.

This oracle brings particular guidance that although you are powerful, you are also vulnerable at this time. You need to be alert to sabotage and criticism that may make your progress more difficult than it already is. That would be rather unnecessary. At least some of the people around you might be more attached to their fear and doubt than to their faith in your process and the ways of the creative, rebellious, spiritual path that asks us to trust unconditionally. They may be frightened due to a lack of understanding. You don’t need to carry their fear for them. You have your own process to attend to and they can choose to be inspired by your journey, or frightened by it. They are free to respond as they wish and whatever those responses are, they are part of their journey, for them to work through.

You also need to be vigilant against the darker forces within you. These are the voices that you may not expect, particularly if you are a pure-hearted being who typically resonates with love. These voices or feelings might surprise you with their dark intensity. They may be feelings of hate, terror or of wanting only to sleep because anything further is all just too hard. They may contain vicious criticism of yourself or tell you that your inner creative work is pointless, unoriginal, not worth it or stupid. These dark forces might try to tell you that you are on the wrong path, suggest that you will fail, or ask with great condescension, ‘Who the hell do you think you are?’

You must stay in your heart and not believe these dark forces. Stay in compassion. Fear creates the energy of anger, hate and destructiveness. These forces are a part of life. We don’t have to be frightened of them, nor do we need to deny their existence or try to ignore them in order to find light in the darkness. We just need to hold compassion and be intelligently aware so we can avoid being seduced into the trap of needing to prove ourselves or into the mistaken belief that we need to fight against darkness. It is too easy to get caught up in trying to heal the dark. Darkness just is. Recognize it when it is there and be in your compassionate heart. All you need to do is make a choice – will you stay in your heart or will you be seduced by darkness and overcome by hate or sleepiness?

Diving for light is a spiritual test and a threshold for all true creative work. We successfully navigate our way through this test and pass the threshold into new creative birth, by staying connected to the light of compassion in our own hearts. It is not an easy test, but it is one that you must be ready for – otherwise it wouldn’t be coming to you now. Just remember, it si the light of the heart that sustains. It exists within us always, even in the darkest depths of unknown terrain.

This oracle also comes with a special message. There is a darkness within or around you that could become problematic if left unchecked. If, for no particular reason, you find yourself feeling angry, irritated, hopeless or tired more easily than usual, unable to rest or it is just too much effort to exercise or take care of yourself, then this darkness is having an unnecessary effect on you. It is time to end that now from a place of compassion. The healing process below will empower you for that task. Don’t be afraid. you are learning this lesson and the unending power of compassion because you are ready for it. Feel honoured by the lesson and stay humbly centered in your powerful, rebellious heart that refuses to be conquered by fear and remains faithful to love. All will be well.”

Healing Process: “Say this aloud, whether it makes sense to you or now:
“I call upon the presence of unconditional love. Be here now, without restraint. Fill me and fill this space. Touch all beings with your grace. I feel the presence of unconditional love within me. I acknowledge the presence of unconditional love all around me. I am the presence of unconditional love and in this love, no fear can remain. May unconditional love guide any fear back to the light of love, o back into the earth , as serves the greatest good. My body, mind, heart and soul are now completely bathed in and protected by unconditional love. Through my own free will, this is so.”

Repeat morning and night for at least three days and continue for as long as you wish and feels good for you.

You may feel some reactions to this work. Fear, anger, or irritation may come up. You may feel an overwhelming need to go and do something that doesn’t actually seem that important that doesn’t actually seem that important once you start doing it and could have waited five more minutes. You might feel nausea. You might also feel emotional, with sadness or grief passing through you. These are all signs that your healing process is working on a darker energy and that the energy is releasing itself from you. Repeat this simple process until you feel clear. Don’t be afraid to continue with it as much as is needed. Especially if you live or work in a toxic environment with a lot of negativity, arguments, anger or disturbances and cannot extricate yourself from that environment for a period of time for various reasons. If you feel you need additional help, seek out a reputable shaman or spiritual healer (start with internet searches or word of mouth referrals, then trust your instincts to find someone who is a good match for you to work with). There is no need to fear or to feel burdened by this work. You are being drawn into this experience so that you are ready to experience more light. To be ready for that, we must be capable of handling equal darkness. Now is the preparation, soon the celebration will follow.”*

Breakthroughs are available to us now, if we are ready to take them on. This means completely accepting a major shift in our perception of ourselves. What were once considered our limitations are burned to the ground. The work is being done to restructure our belief systems, a complete system overhaul and upgrade is underway.

If we are experiencing difficulties, it is because we are still holding on to the old ways. Let them go willingly. There is so much better coming now.

What we previously considered magic, or miraculous, will become common expectation. What may have once seemed impossible is now daily occurrence.

But to receive this new energy takes commitment on our part. It is the planting of the lotus seed in the deep, dense mud of what has been. It is the determination to embrace the change, to trust and have absolute faith in the New which causes the seed to sprout and the stem to grow.

Illumination comes with the full bloom of ascension, the quantum leap of growth and development. Awakening. Enlightenment. Opening. Receiving. Being.

It is all on offer here and now. Will you dive down deep to find the Light within?

Namaste

Poe’s Brave Flight

Poe’s Brave Flight: “You will not let fear stop you this time!”

About Poe’s Brave Flight: “Most of us are encouraged to stay safe, to avoid what may hurt us, and thus we shrink, day by day. Many religions and cultures have supported this notion of staying safe above all other enterprises for over two thousand years. They have encouraged us to feel separated from a place of beauty and peace called Heaven, suggesting again and again that we have been punished, because we are here on Earth. Many mainstream religions have discouraged us from seeking our own personal connection with the Divine – told us that our bodies are sinful, that nature is to be dominated, and that our natural desires are somehow wrong. We fear pain and feel guilt when we experience suffering: we must have created it. But the truth is that simply by being alive, you will be challenged. The truth is, you have chosen to come here, to evolve. And your best opportunities for learning and being taught great lessons lie in the moments others call painful. Whatever frightens you now is exactly that which you must do. The truth is, as Poe is demonstrating, the humblest creatures – even the pigeons, – can fly high and far, and have much to teach and show us. By taking that chance, by doing something outside of what we consider to be safe, we will learn and be blessed with the experience of divinity on this planet.

Poe’s Brave Flight speaks: “Humans are preoccupied with what is fair and easy. “That sounds scary,” they say. I don’t know if I could do that,” they murmur, looking longingly at places and adventures they wish to have, yet which they insist on cheating themselves out of. You see, the new and exciting frightens you – and you are obsessed with avoiding fear. You want there to be no difficulty at all. You are consumed with avoiding pain. You will do anything to avoid uncertainty. And in the rush for all this security and comfort, ease and lack of challenge, you are forgetting how to be fully alive. You are beginning to live as though challenge and change are some kind of curse. I, too, am frightened. So too have been all your heroes, all the great ones. But they would not let their fear rule them or corrupt their dream. They were frightened of heights – but they flew anyway. Today, climb on the back of one who can take you higher, who has offered you assistance, and take the chance. Trust – and fly!

Divination: “You are going to be offered a chance to do something out of your normal reality, and instead of thinking it through, again and again, and analyzing its risks until you are immobilized, Poe’s Brave Flight asks you to take the suggestion of another and fly high. There will be a message that comes to you via a text or an email, and it will be up to you whether you respond – or whether you ignore the call. This could be a trip where air travel is involved, or an experience where you will have to take some chances and be uncertain of what will happen. You must allow uncertainty to enter your life – because your life is being slowly killed by all the safety. Take the chance: Travel, explore, and overcome a fear of flying – all will be worth it, for you will discover something wonderful about yourself in return. You are brave and capable of greater things! “*

Many times we have opportunity come knocking only to freeze up and miss the chance. We block ourselves with our thoughts before we even have a chance to act. Fear sets in and all the doubts come to the surface. What if I fail? What if I can’t do it? What if I make a mistake? And we retreat; cut ourselves off from the flow of the Universe; block the abundance from reaching us. We may experience moments of regret, but we tell ourselves it’s just as well, we were most likely doomed to failure anyhow.

So what if we kicked those wicked old though patterns to the curb? What if we acknowledged that there is always room in our lives for miracles? That what we have is so great now already, it can only get better from here.

What if we decided to jump before we lost courage? What if we jumped back into the flow, the excitement, the thrill of the flight? This is not recklessness, it’s bravery. This opportunity was custom made for us and success is the only option.

Fear is not.

Time to take flight, right into 2016.

Namaste

What Is Already With You

Published October 9, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
What Is Already With You

What Is Already With You, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle: Guidance for Living a Unique and Authentic Life, by Alana Fairchild

Daily Angel Oracle Card: What Is Already With You, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle: Guidance for Living a Unique and Authentic Life, by Alana Fairchild

What Is Already With You: “You hold in your hand that which you seek. In other words, the pair of spectacles you have been rummaging around the house for, are sitting on top of your head. What you are seeking, perhaps by exploring far and wide, is actually right under your nose. You may not like this idea! It is so much more wonderful to imagine there is something yet to find. Of course, there is unlimited creative potential and always something more that can be – yet in this instance, it is important for you to know that you already have what you need and what you want. That doesn’t mean it’s the end of the story, although it does ask you to give up the fantasy that a perfect solution lies i the future somewhere. Instead it asks you to acknowledge that everything necessary for success is with you now. All you need to do is accept this and act with what you have available to you. This is good news. This particular chapter has a happy ending in store. That ending will become real for you just as soon as you stop trying to skip forward to the next chapter. Better to be completely present in the now. From here, the next phase will naturally happen without force on your part.

It might not seem like you have much to start with. Perhaps you feel that all you have is a small, simple choice to make – perhaps you have a song to begin, an email to send, a conversation to start or a sketch to let loose. However small, it is enough to get the ball rolling. Don’t make the mistake of believing that what you need is behind you, lies with another or is yet to appear. You have all that you need to take the next step in your life and from that, all else will flow. And there is a sweetness to that. It is a small pleasure at first, but one from which greater pleasures can unfurl.

This oracle also comes with special guidance for you. You are more ready than you think you are. You are more prepared than you realize. You don’t need an entire army of resources to move ahead – although you may find that when yo do move, many resources suddenly become apparent. All that you need in this moment is just one sweet act of nourishment. That is enough to take you out of backwards nostalgia or regret, and forwards into what is awaiting you now. Be brave. Dig deep within. And enjoy the  sweet surrender.”*

~by Alana Fairchild

You have everything you need in order to move forward. All the old excuses that you use in order to protect yourself from the new are no longer valid. Procrastination is no longer an option. The Universe is calling. Are you listening?

It’s so easy to put your life on hold while you try to fix the things you think are holding you back. Only to realize that you, in fact, are holding yourself back. It’s not about the money, or the weight loss, or the health improvement. It’s not about getting approval or validation from others. This is about believing in yourself and your abilities. It’s about acknowledging all the skills you possess, and all the inner wisdom. It’s about knowing you are worthy by fully accepting and loving yourself. It’s about knowing that everything will fall into place as soon as you take that first step.

Really, it’s all about faith.

Namaste
