The Temptation

The Temptation, from The Heart Of Faerie, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Temptation, from The Heart Of Faerie, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Temptation: “Enticement, Wise Choices, Safety”

“The Temptation and Faerie go hand in hand. The lure of Faerie can be more tempting than anything else you will encounter. Resisting The Temptation may be more than you can bear. If you enter Faerie, do you eat the food? Do you follow the beautiful stranger? Do you trade your first born child for wealth, love or fame? How do you know when it is safe to give in to temptation? Who to trust? Who to believe? Maybe no one and yet, if you have been looking and listening and are aware of who and what you are meeting, you may be able to make the right choices. Stop and ask your heart what ‘feels’ right.

When The Temptation turns up in a reading look closely at it. Ask yourself what is tempting you at this moment that may not be a wise choice. Is it a relationship that you just know is wrong but you want it anyway? what are you willing to lose if you give in to this particular temptation? If this is the only card  you draw, make sure you know what the temptation is. If it is not clear, draw another card to help you. For example, if the card you draw next is the Queen of the Day, then you will be safe in asking for her help. If on the other hand, you draw the Queen of the Night, or the Prince of Shadows, then you may be even more tempted, but beware, they do not always have your best interests at heart.”*

You may not realize it quite yet, but you are undergoing a test. This test is to see how much you want what you think you want. Are you chasing your dreams, or are you getting caught up in your desires. What is the difference?

You know what your heart yearns for; what your Soul whispers to you… it is not something that can be satiated quickly. It is not about getting rich quickly, material acquisitions, or fast relationships. It will take time to get there, it will take some work. But it will be oh so worth the wait. If you are looking for a quick fix, or you are looking at the grass being greener somewhere else, think again.

This is not a time to compromise your dreams and ignore the signs and signals you are getting from the Universe. It is fine to be swept off your feet, but make sure whoever or whatever is doing it has your highest good in mind. It is easy to get off track and take what is on offer because you are impatient and tired of waiting for the real deal; or because you feel you are unworthy; or maybe it seems as if your dream has passed you by.

It is exactly the opposite!

Do not waste your precious time and energy on anything or anyone that is not absolutely authentic and honest. If they do not radiate truth, then you know they are simply not for you. Trust your intuition. Take your time. Use all of your senses. Be awake and aware. Let them prove themselves to you. You are more than worth it.

Namaste

The Elven Knight

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Elven Knight, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and WendyFroud

The Elven Knight: “Enchantment, Call of Faerie, Leadership”

“The Elven Knight summons us to heed the call of Faerie. This is the male energy that can draw you deeper into the world beyond your own. Much of the energy in Faerie is female, but there is a true balance of male energy there as well. The Elven Knight, the consort of the queen, can rule equally in this land. Proud and powerful, he rides through this domain, leading the faeries in a procession that can take them from their world into ours and back again. The trooping of the faeries is dangerous to witness, but the lure of it is almost irresistible, and we wish nothing more than to follow the call of  The Elven Knight deep into his realm. The danger is that, once we have followed in the wake of the troop we will not want, or even be able, to return to our own world, and will instead be lost forever in the land of Faerie.

What does it mean if The Elven Knight is drawn in a reading? If the card is alone, we must be aware of what our heart is yearning for. Is it something we can have? Is it a hopeless yearning for something unwise for us to pursue? If the knight is drawn as a companion to other cards then it can be interpreted as a driving force in our life, a need to accomplish something difficult but possible. The energy of The Elven Knight is a powerful motivator to go forward, leading the way and taking others with us on our path.”*

The ego is always present and it may not be comfortable with you undergoing a Spiritual Transformation at this time, when you ‘should’ be worrying about more material needs. Work hard; pay bills; purchase items that show your status and worth; consume, attain, hoard… All under the supervision of ego.

Think of the ego as Scrooge. Stooping low to make sure we rise to the top. Being wary of others as they may steal our stuff! Not trusting. Not sharing. Lack mentality. Fear. Suspicion. Worry. Doubt. And ego is warning you now, be careful! You may be forever altered by this so-called spiritual quest! Put it off for later. Get back to work! We need more STUFF!!!!! But that’s not going to work this time, oh no, that is a very old tape that has been playing for way too long. We are all done with that. In fact, there is quiet a lot we are done with now!

There is also the chance that there is someone in your life who is comfortable with the idea of you becoming a more spiritual being. They like the old you, the you that they know, think they understand, and possibly feel in control of. This is going going to stop you from moving forward fearlessly, and in fact, it may be your first challenge to distance yourself from those who do not hold your Highest Good in mind, or who are intimidated by your awakening. Don’t worry, one day, in this lifetime or the next, they will figure theirs out. No one gets left behind, but everyone must get there on their own time. Do not let the fear of others hold you back from your Spiritual Quest. 

We are going to listen to the call of our hearts. We are going to trust in the Elven Knight to lead us safely through the enchanted forest and safely past the temptation to go back to the same old routine of acquisition. Instead, we are going to trust. We have Faith. We hear the call of ascension and we heed it.

We decide we want to remember. We intend to be triumphant on our Spiritual Journey.

We decide, right now, to Wake UP!

Namaste

The Question

The Question, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Question, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Joy Of The Future: “Intention ~ Dialogue ~ Answers”

“In Faerie, questions are very important. Questions, answers, and wishes, all of those things that help or hinder us on our journey are very much a part of our relationship with Faerie. “Who am I? What is your quest? Why have you come here, what do you seek?” are questions often asked by the individuals you meet in Faerie. They do not as often ask you who you are. It is more important for you to discover who they are.

It is important to know why you are traveling in Faerie and to be able to express that reason. You will be asked. When you cross the border into the otherworld, you should have a reason to be there. Are you a tourist, just looking around, hoping to send a postcard home? Are you on a quest, a journey of the spirit? Do you want knowledge? Experience of the otherworld? Are you looking for love? Are you searching for something that you have lost?
If you draw the Question in a reading, try to answer those questions for yourself. When you have answered, you can ask on of your own. What is that question, and of whom are you asking it? If you are clear about your quest (in Faerie and in you life) and what it is you seek, you will then be able to ask the right questions and be ready to hear the answers.”*

~ By Brian and Wendy Froud

Creating our lives is all about intention. We need to get clarity on what it is we are wanting to create and then find a way to vibrate to its resonance; thus attracting in it from the Unmanifest realms into our physical plane of existence. Sounds simple enough right? Yet we often struggle with getting the clarity due to our limiting belief systems around what we feel is possible, for us personally. We may believe that we would love to create something; but hold the deep belief that we are not actually worthy, deserving or capable of that particular creation. Then, we have a problem. We are playing go, go, STOP with the Universe!

Faeries do not mess around, they get straight to the point. And they have the confidence to know that they deserve, and are more than capable of creating, whatever it is that they wish for. And they are asking that we get that very same clarity and set out intentions accordingly; letting go of all the rest of the baggage we seem to be carrying around in the form of doubts, limitations and fears. Simplify things. Whittle it down to the nitty gritty of what you want, discarding what may or may not seem possible. Embrace the feeling of how that would feel, to have that experience… and leave some room for something even better, knowing that you deserve only the best. Then get out there and prep the rest of your life for what’s coming. Make space. Clean house. Detoxify. Release.

And then? Walk with a skip in your step and your head held high, knowing that you are keeping an incredible secret! The secret to manifesting your dreams. And go ahead and feel just a little bit smug that you know that you are indeed, a master manifestor. In fact, you are so good at it, you will share your secret and help others.

There is more than enough to go around, once you know what you want and set your sites. The Universe Always Provides.

The Speaker Of Truth

The Speaker Of Truth, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Speaker Of Truth, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by  Brian and Wendy Froud

The Speaker Of Truth: “Trust ~ Acceptance ~ Open Heart”

“In Faerie, many of the individuals we meet can be tricky. They will tell you a lie as blithely as tell you the truth; it is in their nature. This beautiful man is the Speaker Of Truth. Like Thomas the Rhyme, he cannot lie. When something needs to be told, when a question needs a truthful answer, he will always speak, going to the heart of the matter and telling you what he has found there. It may not be what you wish to hear, but it will be truthful. He can be trusted when you need someone to trust. When The Speaker Of Truth appears, ask him the question you most need a truthful answer to and be willing to accept that answer. It will not always be easy, but when he turns up, it means that somewhere within you, you are seeking the truth. So open your heart to him as he opens his heart to you and truly hear him when he speaks.”*

~by  Brian and Wendy Froud

Yesterday we danced with the Queen Of The Night. Today we face The Speaker Of Truth. All will be revealed; there is no hiding behind false beliefs and illusions; the veil has been lifted. What is it that you truly need to know? There is no point in burying your head in the sand; the truth is too bold to avoid; too profound to ignore. It is being channeled straight from your Soul.

If you have been avoiding or ignoring the signs; if you have been refusing to accept the truth, or if you have been judgmental or guarded out of fear, know that it is now time to face the truth. If you could ask just one question, what would it be? What do you need clarity on? What does your intuition tell you that you may be second guessing or turning a blind eye to?

Drop the victim mentality and know that authenticity is now the only option. Step into your own truth and inspire others to step into their own with you. Be your beautiful, powerful self. No more hiding; no more living small to please others. No more asking advice or living by the opinions or judgement of others, and no more fear around being accepted. You are exactly as you came here to be… deep down. You have a gift to offer and it lingers just beyond your mask.

Remove the mask to reveal the true you and you just may be blown away by how empowering and liberating this feels! It will give you the inspiration and motivation you need in order to move forward fearlessly as your angels cheer you on. Know that there is no hiding yourself from the Divine, and you are exactly perfect when you commit to being authentic.

Says the Speaker of Truth.

And so it is.

Namaste

The Queen Of The Night

Published April 3, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Queen Of The Night, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Queen Of The Night, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Queen Of The Night, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Queen Of The Night: “Desire ~ Yearning ~ Inspiration”

“Behold The Queen Of The Night: the embodiment of all longing. She is the endless night of desire that never thinks of morning; but not just physical desire. She can inspire you to write a poem, paint a picture, find a lover – all with the intensity of single focus. If you choose to ignore her, you may be haunted by the spectre of what might have been. You will never know whether the fragment of poetry you had in your head would become something complete or how the images in your mind would translate onto canvas or paper and you may never know if the person you desire could become your one true love – but you will be safe.

If you choose to follow her, this queen will be your constant companion until you have fulfilled your desire. Only then will you be free of her. However, her gift of inspiration may not be what it seems. You may wake to find that the very thing you have created with such passion has turned to dross in the light of day – the poem, mundane, the lover a loser. Will you risk it?

If you come into her presence, I suggest you draw at least one more card to help you to make sense of where she is leading you. If, for example, you draw the Prince of Light, then her inspiration will most likely lead you down creatively healthy paths. If you draw the Prince of Shadows then beware of what the night holds. (PS. I pulled one more card and it was “The Speaker Of Truth” stay tuned for tomorrows message…) “*

~ by Brian and Wendy Froud

Our yearning heart pushes us to take action on pursuing our dreams; yet there is an aspect of this card that warns us to seek clarity before behaving impulsively. It is easy to get caught up in the drama, and it is easy to project your desires onto someone or something that you feel is the key to your joy. If only you can get this person to love you; if only you can land this job; if only you can achieve or attain your goal whatever it may be… then you can allow happiness and joy into your life. Yet we may find that we are let down after each conquest if it is external to us; the joy we seek is within.

Take off the blinders and see what it is that you truly desire. What feeling do those external people or pleasures promise to your ego? Is it security? Fulfillment? Peace? Can that really come with something or someone else? Or could you flip the whole thing around and seek those feelings of peace and fulfillment from within first; knowing that it will draw the people, situations and material objects to you when you are a vibrational match?

This is a message of listening carefully before jumping in with both feet. Stillness before action; the calm before the storm. Divine timing is everything; you must respect the Natural Laws of the Universe. You can create what you desire; and know that every moment is one of creation.

So the bottom line is this:

Be mindful of what you are creating. Moment to moment. Thought to thought. Feeling to feeling.

The Challenge

The Challenge, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Challenge, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Challenge: “Self Criticism ~ Obstruction ~ Go For It”

“This faerie stands before you as you set off on your journey. She bars the way and demands an answer to her challenge. She asks you to be brave. She may try to dissuade you from your task by whispering undermining thoughts in your ear. She is testing you. Do not give in. Stand up to her, and she will gladly step aside and let you pass.

If this faerie appears in your reading, ask yourself this question: Are you up to the challenge of a new venture or are you too self critical to attempt it? The Challenge asks you to step up to the mark and do whatever is being asked of you. Do not let self criticism get in the way. It is important to look at yourself, your motives, and your goals in a realistic way, but do not be tempted to listen to the voice that tells you that you are not good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, or talented enough to attempt the task in font of you. If you are thinking about beginning a new relationship or venture, but the voice in your head keeps whispering that you are just not good enough to even consider it, remember that this is a challenge. You are being tested, so go for it, and you will be surprised at how much you can achieve.”*

~by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Challenge Faerie is here to force you to face your fears and step forward regardless. This time, they need not hold you back. Can you feel the new energy of this year? Can you feel yourself rise above all the petty setbacks of the past, many of which were orchestrated by your meddling ego? Well, it’s time to release all that no longer serves you, step into your power and claim your new reality. Breathe that in. How does it feel?

Stop and feel the butterflies in your belly; can you imagine magically turning that anxiety into excitement and positive anticipation? Stop and take three slow, deep grounding breaths; and with each one, see the fear recede and the enthusiasm take over. You’ve got this, can you feel it? Plant both feet firmly on the ground, if possible bare feet and outside, even if only for the duration of those deep breaths, and feel the strength come right up from the Earth. Mother Gaia sends her loving support. Send any fears and doubts down through your feet to be transmuted into positivity and take a moment to wrap yourself in a blanket of pure joy.

Know you are fully supported by the Universe. Know that The Challenge is but an illusion; a test. Step up to the Challenge and say (aloud if possible, or silently):

I AM beautiful. I AM capable. I AM everything I need. I AM free to move forward.

And then, with your left foot, take a big step forward into the New.

You got this.

Namaste

The Prince Of Light

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Prince Of Light, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Prince Of Light: “New Beginnings ~ Peacemaker ~ Potential”

“The Prince Of Light comes into your life like a blessing. He is the bringer of new beginnings, indicated by the egg he holds before him, which is the symbol of potential. He soothes, calms, and leads you into the light. The peacemaker, he is always ready to still the troubled waters of a relationship. He is wise. If he appears in a reading, listen to what he has to tell you. If you recognize a friend or partner in The Prince Of Light, cherish that person and honour the goodness he can bring to a relationship. If you draw this card with the Queen of the Day, you will be surrounded by grace and light. Bring that light to your own relationships and see them blossom under the benevolent gaze of these tow powerful beings.”*

~ by Brian and Wendy Froud

This is a gentle reminder that when dealing with others, it does nor us or them any good to expect perfection. When we set our standards to achieve perfection, we set not only ourselves, but others close to us, up for sure failure. In order to experience true Unconditional Love and Christ Consciousness, we must be able to forgive and accept ourselves as we are, where we are in our journey. This very same courtesy must be extended to all, those we love and those we may not feel close to. Perfection is an illusion; perfection is finding the ability within our hearts to embrace all.

The Prince Of Light knows this, and he brings with him the peace of lightness of heart. He brings a message of starting over, seeing things with a brand new perspective. Starting from within. He encourages us to treat ourselves like our own true love, for only by doing so can we attract healthy and lasting relationships. This is not of ego, this is of Soul Love. Only Soul can express true acceptance without first having to “fix” things. Only Soul can see the Divinity and potential in the here and now. It is ego that thinks once things are perfectly lined up that we will then accept and love.

This message is gentle there is no pushing, no pulling, no trying to fit into a box designed by others. It is a celebration of differences; the building of a tribe of nations. It is about seeing the similarities, not the differences. It is about creating world peace through the portal of our own hearts. One person at a time. One love at a time. Full authenticity. Full acceptance.

Will you accept the invitation to be an integral part of this global tribe?

Come as you are, from where you are at right now.

Right from the heart.

Namaste
