Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Gift, from The Heart Of Faery Oracle card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Gift: “Wisdom, Gracious Acceptance, Recognition.”

“We think of Faerie gifts as perhaps not being what they seem. The three wishes you were given are a trick and a burden, the charming prince becomes a demon lover. Sometimes, however, the gift of Faerie is a true gift, given freely and with good intent. And what will this gift be? What it will most likely be is wisdom. The gift of wisdom comes from journeying long within the realm of Faerie. Looking, listening, and being aware of the energies that surround you, prepare you for the gift of wisdom

That is what this masked figure holds out to you. An egg – containing all of the wisdom you have acquired throughout your travels in Faerie. This is a serious gift. She is not a capricious sprite, but a grave and majestic figure. If you are willing to acknowledge the journey you have taken and the lessons you have learned, then accept her gift, freely given and richly deserved.

If you draw the Gift, you may wonder what significance it holds for you, especially if you are just beginning your journey into the realm of Faerie. Do not worry. Think of all of the steps you have already taken to get you to this space you are in right now. Right here. You are already wiser and more learned than you can imagine. Take that wisdom from her, receive it gratefully and carry it with you as you travel on.”*

– Brian and Wendy Froud

There are many things going on in the world right now which do not feel right. There are people acting viciously towards one another; there are innocents being harmed; there is sickness; and the planet is being thoughtlessly damaged. Everything we do is recorded, there is not much in the western world that qualifies as “off the grid” anymore, and we are all subjected to an barrage of sensationalism, propaganda and commercialism. It can be hard to keep your true self afloat in such a sea of overwhelming stimulation, or even discern what is truth and what is lies. Yet this is exactly what we must do.

It is easy to get caught up in the negatives; the death, the sickness, the financial destruction, the environmental degradation. It can make you feel smaller and smaller…. and smaller. Helpless and hopeless. But we really don’t have time for that now do we?

So what can one person do to create change? It is the best mantra in the world; be it. BE the change you wish to see in the world. And that is not just lifestyle, it is a thought process too. It requires courage and determination and conviction and commitment. But it is possible. It takes action and focused intention. Coming together and teaching others. Once positive, healthy and sustainable thought at a time. We have the power to make the change by refusing what is no longer working for us on a moment to moment basis.

We are, individually and collectively so much more powerful than we think. Our thoughts are infinitely more powerful than we can currently comprehend. Understanding our own power is the gift offered to us right now. It is up to us to believe in ourselves; despite the current crises we are surrounded by; and use our wisdom to create change. Permanent, positive, loving change. And it all starts with each and every one of us, shifting and changing the way we look at the planet and each other. Letting go of the social conditioning that we are not powerful and that accumulation of stuff equals power and wealth. Embracing a different kind of peaceful power.

We can start by using our thoughts to create a safe and beautiful world.

Rather than living in doubt and fear of that which is presented to you, turn it around and create it into something beautiful. Believe in it. We can change this; I know it sounds mad but it is exactly true. You have everything you need, it is within you… it always has been. Use your power to create something new.

Remember why you came here, to save the world.

Namaste

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 message? 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 any anxiety into excitement and positive anticipation? Stop and take three slow, deep grounding breaths; and with each one, see your fears recede and a new 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 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 conscious intention take a big step forward into the New.

You got this.

Namaste

The Prince Of Light

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

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 neither us or them any good to expect perfection. When we set our standards to achieve perfection, we set everyone involved up for failure, including ourselves. Perfection is an illusion; true perfection is finding the ability within our hearts to embrace all; practicing the Law of Allowing. In order to experience true Unconditional Love and Christ Consciousness, we must be able to accept ourselves as we are, extending the same courtesy to others. To know that wherever we are in our own personal journey, even if this requires some forgiveness, we are worthy of 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 acceptance of the truth.

The Prince Of Light knows this, and he brings with him the blessing of peace and of lightness of heart. He signifies 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.

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

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

Right from the heart.

Namaste

The Song

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

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

The Song: “Attentive Awareness ~ Hidden Energy ~ Listen With Your Heart”

“What is the Song? What does it mean? The Song is energy and vibration. Everything has its own energy, and everything has its own vibration or song. In Faerie, as we travel the roads that spiral inward, we are aware of the energy of everything around us. Because we are in the other realm, it is easy to feel the energy of rocks and trees, of flowers and grasses. When we travel in our human world, we may find it difficult to find any energy at all in the buildings, pavement, and stunted vegetation that surrounds us, but it is there nonetheless. No matter where we are, in a beautiful country landscape of a cityscape of steel and glass, the energy is still there, flowing through and around everything, connecting everything in a harmony of song.

If you draw this card, it may be time to stop and listen. Put your hand on something close to you and be aware of what you feel. Awareness and connection are so important. Relationships falter when connections are lost and energies blocked. If you feel that a relationship is stuck, try listening for the song of the other person. Pay attention! That is one of the most important lessons that the Faerie has to teach us: pay attention, and the energy will start to flow again.”*

~by Brian and Wendy Froud

As we enter higher levels of consciousness; our awareness is increasing. We are so much more sensitive to the energies around us; the energies of people and animals; of the plants and the trees; the vibration of sound; and of the heartbeat of our Beautiful Earth, Mother Gaia herself. All of these energies affect us in one way or another; the vibration of each thing we come into contact with leaves an energetic mark. We must take time to tune into our bodies, our minds and our spirits to listen to what they are telling us when we come into contact with these subtle energies. Only then can we learn to work with them.

When you walk through the forest, what do you feel? Can you feel the energy of the trees? Can you feel that certain trees vibrate in different frequencies? How do rocks feel to you? Or the moss or ferns that cover them? If you take the time to make the connection, it will truly blow you away. Their love. Their acceptance. Their devotion to their Mother Gaia. Their strength and connection. It’s a beautiful thing to behold. And we are always welcome to partake of this energy. Can you feel them beckon to you to put your hand on their bark? To sit with your back against their trunk and allow them to align your energy centers? To experience a drama free existence, at peace with your space in the Universe.

The Song is the Song of the Universe. It starts in our cells, deep within our DNA. By simply acknowledging it, it will start to grow louder so that you can hear it in your heart. You are part of this Song of the Universe.

Listen closely and you will hear your Soul sing to you.

Namaste

The Returning

The Returning, from the Heart Of Faery Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

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

The Returning: “Profound Change ~ New Perspective ~ Understanding”

“What is the Returning? Is it the end? Hardly. There is no end in Faerie. Where has this faerie been? What has she seen and what has she brought back with her? A pearl of wisdom? A unicorn horn? What tales will she tell you?

The paths you follow flow into each other and an end of one path is the beginning of another as you journey deeper into the heart of the realm. The returning is coming home, coming back to a place that is no longer only where you started from but somewhere much more profound. You can’t return and expect things to have remained the same while you were away. Everything shifts and changes, moving on and metamorphosing into something new.

If you draw the Returning, think about what it is that you really wish to change in your life. As you sit with the Returning before you, visualize what would happen if you just walked out of the room for a moment and upon returning found that your understanding of a present situation had changed in a profound way. What would it take to make that change happen? What could you do, how would you need to feel, to shift your perspective? Sometimes, by taking a moment to return to where you are now, you will be able to see the moment with greater clarity and insight and the next step on your ongoing journey will become clearer as well.”*

~ by Brian and Wendy Froud

It’s time to bring change from the back burner to the forefront. As we wrap up the first half of 2018, is there anything else that needs transforming in your life in order to truly move forward? It may be a simple shift in perspective, it may be leaving something or someone behind at this crossroads. It could be a profound transformation in your self worth, finally finding the love that you have been desiring from the outside resided within… a hundredfold. It could be that you have worked so hard to better yourself that this change in perspective is exactly what you need in order to take a quantum leap in your expanded awareness.

Yes, enlightenment is not just for Buddha, it is for us too. It may take on a different feel than we expect though… a detachment from the drama, a higher perspective, a subtle but extremely profound shift in consciousness.

Imagine it like suddenly finding out that you have always needed glasses, and having someone hand you the perfect pair for your eyes. Imagine that these are magical glasses actually work to amplify all of your senses, not just your eyesight. You can see, hear, feel, taste and smell far beyond what you ever imagined possible. Perhaps a gift from the elemental Faerie realm? This in turn gives you stellar clarity and focus.

You know exactly what you must do in order to move forward.

Thank you my wise ones, my Dear Fae.

Namaste

The Joy Of The Future

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

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

The Joy Of The Future: “Fearful Anticipation ~ Optimism ~ The Now”

“If you look at The Joy Of The Future, you will see that it is full of possibilities. The pixie holds nuts capable of turning into trees and the other beings are filled with joyful anticipation, ready to jump into whatever the future holds for them – except for the little man in the left hand corner. See how worried he is?

Anticipation is really what this image is about. The future is coming and will soon be the present. There isn’t anything we can do to stop that from happening but we often fear what the future holds. This uses up a lot of energy. You can use the same amount of energy thinking that something good is coming, as fearing the worst. It takes courage to anticipate joy: There is always the chance of being disappointed. It is so much easier to expect the worst and then be pleasantly surprised if things are better than you thought they would be. I have found from personal experience that believing that all will be well really can work. It is not easy to believe, but it IS possible. If you concentrate on the present, you do not have time to worry about the future in great detail. If you can learn to move through life with a sense of non-specific joyful anticipation, you may find that some of the barriers that were in your way just disappear. Faeries live in the now. The moment – this moment – matters more to them than any past or future. We of course are mere mortals, but we can try to emulate them.”*

– Brian and Wendy Froud

Change is good. Isn’t it? How do you feel about change? Do you spend time thinking of all the wonderful things that are coming your way, new friends, new loves, new opportunities? Or do you worry and fret about the mystery of the unknown?

We have been going through cosmic upgrades. Changes to increase our vibrational frequencies. Changes to raise our consciousness. Changes to infuse us with stronger connection to Source energy. All amazing, positive and much needed changes in order for us to progress into the fifth dimension of Being. Much more scary than the changes themselves are the mere idea of these changes not taking place; being stuck in the old frequencies, lower consciousness and feelings of isolation and abandonment. Change is our bridge to miracles, abundance and Love. It is the gateway to infinite possibility.

Who do you relate to in the card above? Can you use positive and joyful anticipation when focusing on the future? Can you live moment by moment in the present, refusing to worry about that which hasn’t yet presented itself?

This is the new. We must try in each moment to see the fertility, the creative possibility, the Love, the light.

Time to move forward, embracing the change.

Change is good.

Namaste

The Temptation

Published March 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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.”*

~ By Brian and Wendy Froud

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
