Daily Angel Oracle Card: Presence, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Presence: “Awareness, Attention, Reality, Connection”

“A path of miracles is unfolding right now, in this moment. You must be present to win.”

Card Story: “In the morning light of a spring filled forest, a young girl is drawn into the radiant presence of one of life’s purest creative forces – a honeybee in motion. With the sun on her  skin and the gentle breeze filling her lungs, there is nowhere else to be in this moment but right here, connected the pulse of the natural world and her own true nature. In this space, she cannot help but smile from the very center of her being. This moment my last only seconds, but within this window, miracles abound.”

Card Message: “In the increasingly hectic lifestyles we lead these days, we are often lured by the pull of multi-tasking. While our hands and bodies are busy, the mind also tends to busy itself, wandering into the past, the future and everywhere in between. It has become extremely common (and in many cases acceptable) to be less than fully present in life. Amidst our daily activities, as we drive, as we work and even as we commune with friends and loved ones, we are often fragmented and distracted. In this state, we do not even realize the magic we are missing.

This card is a bold invitation to bring your presence back to the moment and to see what great gifts you are ready to unfold right here where you are. Practice catching yourself when thoughts or actions stray from your immediate experience. Become aware of your thought patterns and gently bring yourself back to the moment, with the knowledge that right now, you are right where you need to be.

Even when a situation genuinely needs to change, often the best first step is to bring our awareness back to what is. When we are busy putting all our thoughts and energy into the past or the future, we do not see the spiritual support and the blessings that are present in each moment. This card encourages you to gently bring yourself back from dwelling anywhere other than in the ‘now.’ By being fully present, we are able to recognize and utilize the guidance available to us.

Stop for a moment and bring your full attention to this present moment. Bring your awareness to your breath, to your body and surroundings. What can you hear and what do you smell in the air? What would happen if you brought to this moment your wholehearted presence?

Allow blessings and glorious new opportunities to flow into your life now… and be fully present to perceive and receive them. Affirm to yourself that you are right where you need to be in this moment, knowing that there are no limits to what the Universe can deliver through the doorway of your presence.

Be here now!”

~ By Caryn Sangster

‘Be here now.’ This is such an important message for us all. All of us could do with the reminder to pull ourselves back into the present moment. There is so much going on around us; too much most of the time. Work, bills, family responsibilities, home care, pets, and the number one waster of the present moment: technology. Busyness to the point of overwhelm and the habit of living a life of distraction just to feel like we can get away from it all.

But when we are living in this hamster wheel of craziness and busyness, we miss out on all the important things in life. We miss out on the connections, the love, the magic of the natural world. And that makes us feel sad and disconnected; isolated. Like something is missing. And we search for it. But we search in all the wrong places. We add more stuff, we buy stuff, we try to get away, we distract ourselves more, and we get more desolate. We think it is because we need something physical, we need to buy something, go somewhere, meet someone. And that starts the hamster wheel going even faster.

But if we can just learn to stop and jump off the wheel, we can find new meaning in the simple things in life. We can appreciate our loved ones more, and connect on a deeper level. We can immerse ourselves in the miracles of the natural world. We can learn to say no instead of living in overwhelm. We can make time for the things that make us happy, that lift us up, that ignite us. And those are often the simple things in life.

Commit today to practice mindfulness. To work on being in the present moment…. as often as you can. One little trick that works to bring yourself back into the now moment is to focus on your breath, following it through your nose and all the way down into your belly and all the way out again. Another is to gaze at the back of your hand (I’m not entirely sure why this works so effectively but we will just call it magic). Remember that the present moment is the most powerful time we ever really have. It is the time to set intentions. The time to focus our energy. The time to be receptive and the time to step fully into ourselves.

Master the art of being in the present moment and master your life, taking full responsibility for the shifts and changes that become available. Opening up to the Universal connection. And becoming the most powerful version of yourself.

Namaste

Dreams

Published February 2, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dreams, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dreams, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Dreams: “Messages, Signs, Symbols, Guidance”

“Look for the wisdom in your deepest dreaming… Awaken to the visions of your highest being.”

Card Story: “In the center of the path of infinite dreams is the iris of an all seeing eye. Individual and universal, connected to all things. The Source and seer of sacred knowing, it reveals to us the inner truth of our journey through the patterns, symbols and cycles of creation. Clearing the sky, drawing us in, opening our view to the dreaming within. A man looks over his shoulder to see his likeness in the clouds, catching a glimpse of himself watching himself… from above.”

Card Message: “Our dreams are doorways to different aspects of reality. An open landscape of exchange between our conscious and subconscious minds and the great beyond. Dreams carry messages and guidance for us. They help us to process the events and patterns of our physical life and they put us in touch with our spirit, our guides, angels and even relatives that have passed over.

It is time to pay close attention to your dreams. Not all dreams seem significant but by paying attention to your dreams on a regular basis, you will begin to notice which ones hold important messages for you. Take a moment upon waking to write down your memories from sleeping… notice where you were and any symbols that seemed significant. Become aware of how you felt in the dream.

Certain people, themes or memories may arise in your dreams so that you can heal hidden wounds or awaken to forgotten aspects of yourself. By writing down your dreams you will increase your intuition and sensitivity to them. You will become more in tune with what messages/guidance you can take from them to enhance the choices in your waking life.

In the same way that we can feel out of control or unconscious of our dreams while sleeping, we can also feel out of touch with our hopes and dreams in life. This card is a call to reclaim your role as an active, conscious dreamer – as a visionary weaver of life’s greatest gifts and possibilities. Look at what you dream of achieving in your life. Are you actively moving in the direction of  your dreams or do you feel deep down that you will never reach them?

Take time to crystallize your vision for what you truly wish to achieve. Allow your soul to speak through your imagination and paint a picture of your highest potential. Realize that there are absolutely no limits to what you can create in this life. Do not waste another day just dreaming the dream – start living it! Begin to put time and energy into your dreams so that they become a reality. Make a plan, write a list or whatever it is, that is the first step towards your dreams. As you move in the direction of this vision, the Universe will rise within to meet you. It is time to live your dreams!

In the words of Goethe, ‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can… begin it. Boldness has wisdom, power and magic in it!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

Pay very close attention to your dreams, both waking and sleeping. Use your dreamtime as valuable tool to create, explore and guide your subconscious mind in the direction you wish to go. Ask for assistance before you go to sleep; for signs, symbols, messages and inspiration to guide you through your current situations and on to your life path.

We can actually train ourselves to remember our dreams just by working with them. Journaling to assist you in identifying patterns, seeing signs and deciphering messages. Placing a crystal such as Amethyst, Apatite, Shaman Quartz or Labradorite under your pillow to enhance or amplify the dream experience. There are teas such as Blue Lotus or tinctures such as Passionflower which also assist in more vivid dreaming.

Also be aware of what your dreams actually are in your waking life… what do you wish to create? What do you dream about? Use your daydreams and your imagination to bring these dreams to life in full detail. Get excited about them, see and feel them as real as your night time dreams can feel.

You have a passed over loved one or guide who wishes to be your dream assistant. Try doing a 5 min meditation before you go to sleep, connecting with this energy. See the person standing in front of you, beckoning you forward. Don’t doubt yourself, whoever pops into your mind is most likely exactly who is wishing to communicate with you. Know that you are safe when you are with them, and they will protect you and show you the way.

Set an intention before going to sleep, maybe you need help making a decision, solving a problem or letting something go. Ask for perspective and inspiration around this particular situation. Keep your journal right beside your bed with a pen handy and take a couple of minutes in the morning to record through writing or drawing what came to you before you forget. Thank your guides for assisting you during dreamtime and helping you to remember the information that came through. If you have trouble remembering, do not worry, it may take a little practice, and you can ask your guides for simple, clear and direct messages to make it easier.

Namaste

Action

Published January 27, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Action, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Action, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Action: “Movement, Perseverance, Discipline, Motivation.”

“Listen to the call of your inner rhythms and take bold action in the direction of your dreams.. Today!”

Card Story: “Cloaked in the fabrics of her passion and at one with the moment, a dancer glides across a stage of sparkled moss and moonlit leaves. She moves with a sense of graceful certainty. A knowing that the ground upon which she dances will rise to meet her steps. Her movements are free and expressive; her eyes seek nothing outside of herself, for she follows a rhythm that comes from within. Connected to the earth and reaching for the heavens, her dance is a bridge of Divine inspiration. She is the embodiment of unified Action.”

Card Message: “In our modern world, with so many different pressures and roles to play, our actions are often inconsistent, postponed or not aligned with our goals. We stand at the edge of our dreams, overwhelmed by uncertainty of how best to begin.

This card is here to remind you that you do not need to see the entire path ahead. You just need to clarify your intentions, feel the rhythms of your calling and begin. Take the first step in faith, knowing that the Universe will align to support you.

Consider an area of your life that you are ready to change or transform. Ask yourself what physical action you can take today – perhaps in the next ten minutes – to assist in bringing about this goal. When the answer comes… follow it!

Do not get overwhelmed by the end result or the details in between. Just begin. Once you start you will find new energy will come in to lift your steps and inspire whatever is needed next. As you take one step and then another, you will begin to build momentum, like the turning of a great wheel. Gradual at first, but soon you are rolling and can guide your energy in any desired direction. Stay with this momentum. Persevere. Consistent action will carry you swiftly towards your goals!

When our actions stem from a sense of inner knowing, like a dancer moving to the pulse of an inner rhythm, our steps will always be guided and true. Do not wait for things to happen. Start dancing and the music will rise to meet you.”*

There is a polarity with the colour red… it can represent fear or it can represent passion. Your choice! Do you want to get past the fear and embrace your passion? Then you have to move forward fearlessly into the unknown. And the time to do it is right now!

Take at least one step today towards creating something new in your life. Take a little risk. Do some research. Get excited. Dream, think, visualize, FEEL your way into it. Breathe life into it. Know that the more positive energy you can put in, the faster your manifestation will be. Watch your self talk, that internal dialogue that talks you so quickly out of what you want to pursue. Instead, set your course and set onto it boldly, knowing that once you commit you will find a way to make it happen.

What do you wish to create? Do you focus all your energy on it? Do you intend to see it through to fruition? Do you know in your heart that you are capable of manifesting it into reality? Can you feel the feelings that creating it would bring?

The orb of the sun through the trees is yellow, the colour of confidence and the Will of the self. The little butterflies are hints of transformation and change. The exposed midriff is trust. The little stars are magic and mystery.

Make something happen.

Today

Namaste

Self-Esteem

Published January 19, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Self-Esteem, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Self-Esteem, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Self-Esteem: “Confidence, Self-love, Self-worth, Pride.”

“You are worthy. You are unique and powerful. Let the Sun that you are shine through your actions and your being today.”

Card Story: “In the center of a sunflower field, a woman rises with natural confidence into the day. Her feet are stable and grounded. She knows where she came from. She is connected to her Source. The sun is at her back and shines so warmly upon her that it seems to come through her… as her. She openly expresses her uniqueness, with a sense of inner freedom that comes from knowing and delighting in who she is.”

Card Message: “It is time to rise up and fully embrace the unique individual you came here to be. Follow your inner voice and feel great about being who you are – expressing yourself in simple, authentic ways.

If we always seek to please others or ‘fit in’, our confidence and self-esteem will always rely upon their approval. It is time to take back your deep inner power and claim a sense of confidence in simply being you. Acknowledge your very best qualities, take pride in how you present yourself and learn to love your ‘imperfections’ as essential aspects of what make you the uniquely Divine individual that you are.

This card is an invitation to discover who you are and the power within your true self. Immerse yourself in activities that increase your self-awareness and confidence. Take up a hobby or learn a new skill. Spend time among friends who see you in your highest light. Spend time in nature alone. Take fun risks, audition for a play, write a song, get your hair cut. Write down what you are grateful for, what you are good at and what you love about yourself. Spend time daily doing things that wake you up to the YOU that you really are deep inside.

In a basic sense, we can build our self-esteem in simple ways by eating more nutritious foods, by exercising in ways that make us feel alive and by honouring our need for rest and rejuvenation. As we expand our energy and nourish ourselves we naturally enhance the vibration and outward expression of our being. We find ourselves feeling more alive, more connected and more excited to be exactly who we are.

Let your self-confidence shine like an inner sun today. Take the risk to be and express who you really are, and watch the world around you celebrate!”*

This is one of the most challenging things we face in our lifetimes. Being truly happy with who we are; where we are at; in the body that we are in. Particularly for females but I know it affects males too. Finding our place in the Universe. Believing in ourselves and seeing our gifts, talents, strengths and weaknesses and loving ourselves not despite of them, but because of them all. Complete acceptance.

It’s ok to be a work in progress. But it is not ok to put your life on hold until…. until that special someone comes to rescue you and give you the love and approval you feel you need in order to be accepted… until you lose weight; have a certain job or amount of money or material object; or until you fit into a certain group or social circle. Or until whatever really.

We put our lives on hold thinking that we should put the “until” in front of the happiness. But we’ve got it all backwards. Be happy first. Despite it all. Acknowledge where you are at and how you got there and then know you have the power to change it all. Accept full responsibility for the creation of it all. And the absolute truth that you are also responsible for the creation of something different or better or brand new.

No more sitting around waiting for things to happen. Waiting for the body to co-operate. Waiting for the finances to increase. Waiting for Mr Right to show up at the door. (dammit… you mean Thor is not going to show up in my living room?) Ok… well do leave some wiggle room for Miracles and blessings and surprises of course.

But be happy anyway. Love the you that you have created and love what comes next.

That’s where your power lies.

Namaste

Seeing

Published January 15, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seeing, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seeing, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Seeing: “Perspective, Truth, Knowledge, Clarity.”

“Look with new eyes upon the world you are creating. Expand your view and your whole reality will grow with it.”

Card Story: “Above the grass, above the trees, above the soaring wings of the eagle… In direct alignment with the rising sun itself, an eye opens, seeing all. There is no tension in its gaze, no space or thought it cannot perceive. Limitless by its very nature, the gift of the eye is to see what is clear and true in the moment, and to envision beyond our physical reality into the field of all possibilities – and in so doing, help to bring non-manifest wisdom into the world. Seeing.”

Card Message: “This card is an invitation to seek new knowledge and expand your perception of reality. See yourself and other people as spiritual beings on a journey. Recognize the patterns that are playing out in your life and the role you play (or could play) in the world. Take pleasure in being part of the ongoing development of the universal consciousness. Enjoy the process of gradually learning about your place in the world.

Through introspection we grow to understand ourselves. We also begin to see other people, situations and the world with a more expanded sense of clarity. Now is a great time for self-reflection, journaling, meditation – for looking within. Ask yourself to reveal higher view of your path… and be open to seeing anew.

Be willing to let go of restricted ways of seeing things. Be open to ‘not knowing’ and ‘not understanding’ some things. Acknowledge new ideas, slowly allowing yourself to evolve and your place in the world to unfold.

It is time to see beyond all pre-conceived limitations to the deeper truth within. Be present in the physical but see beyond it, opening to a wider view of your reality. Look for the positive and the good in all people and situations, even amidst seeming imperfection. Look for the beauty in life and it will reveal itself in and to you.

Take a fresh look at yourself and the world you are creating. Seek deeper meaning and underlying truth. Open yourself to the eagle’s view, seeing both the bigger picture and the finest detail from great heights. Call upon your inner eye to see the highest truth!”*

~ by Caryn Sangster

The all seeing eye… Third Eye, Intuition, Instinct, Higher Perspective, Expansion, Perception. How are you seeing your life? How do you see yourself in the overall scheme of the Universe? Can you see where you are heading, or are you constantly looking back?

Yesterday we were asked to take a little break, a rest, recharge our batteries. It’s about slowing down and having the chance to fully process things, instead of the constant stress of being in motion. It’s the chance to stop and look within.

It’s time to take a very close look at how you see yourself in the world around you. What limitations do you perceive? Do you see the natural world and all it has to offer? And most importantly, are you seeing how the Universe is trying to engage you? Are you seeing the signs, signals and messages? Pay close attention!

Sometimes how we see things is not how others see them at all. We think we know someone by what we see and yet we are only seeing the projection they wish us to see. Now we are being asked to look beyond all illusion, behind the facades that may have us kept us from knowing the truth.

Now, if we look closely, all will be revealed.

Namaste

Connection

Published December 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Connection, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Connection, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Connection: “Universal Oneness – love – Interconnection  – Support”

“You are a vital strand in the great web of life. Your thoughts, feelings and actions are essential to the whole. Connect!”

Card Story: “Like the interwoven blades of an infinite field of grass… like the braided roots of an ancient sacred tree… like the spiraled union of our own DNA and the linking waves of an everlasting sea… We are each connected to each other and to the greater web of life. In the big scheme of things we seem tiny and weightless, but our unique place in this universal chain is called for and essential. We are living bridges of connection.”

Card Message: “This card is about connection with others. It is about feeling the oneness and interconnection of all of life. Opening your heart to love and be loved.

Amidst the pressures and rapid pace of life, it is easy to become so focused on getting things done that we disconnect from the greater flow. It is as though there is a clear mountain stream running right beside us, but we choose to drink from a puddle instead. This card is an invitation to re-engage with the world around you and to honour your place in the interconnectedness of life.

Realize your part in the chain of life. Feel the connection with the food you eat, the people you associate with and the work that you engage in. Realize that all the people who cross your path during the day are each playing out their own lives but in doing this they are playing a part in your world also.

This card also encourages you to engage in relationships openly and deeply. Honour your role and play your part in building a strong connection with your partner or those you are most intimate with. There is a difference between being physically present and genuinely connected. It is time to make a conscious effort to open yourself to deeper levels of engagement and connection in your relationships. From this type of connection we are able to make mistakes, show our true selves and express our fears without judgment. From this type of connection we can feel unconditional love. We support each other and have the opportunity to truly expand awareness of ourselves and awareness of another human being. It is through this genuine connection in the ordinary moments that we open ourselves to the extraordinary possibilities.

We all share this planet. We are all connected to one another and are all loved. Ponder on the thought of universal oneness. Feel part of this interconnected consciousness. Honour your link in the chain… connect!”*

This is the holiday season, we are right in the thick of it all. Frantic shoppers. Zero parking spaces. Lineups at the postal office. Office parties and family gatherings and school concerts and field trips. And yet not everyone celebrates, many people find this the most stressful time of year. Many people feel isolated. Many people feel burnt out. Many people feel stretched financially. Many people struggle.

Reach out to them.  Include them. Desire to bring them back into the fold. Give what you can; be it time or money or food or clothing to a shelter or donations to those in need. Reconnect them, assist them through difficult times. Hold space for them to experience something different, a shift.

Try to take the focus off of all the stuff. Give from the heart instead of out of obligation. Hand make something special. Plan a special dinner for the new year. Give precious time instead of wasting money. Support small or local businesses, people working hard to make their living. People using their creative talents to fulfill their passions while they provide for their families.

And know that you are a part of something so much bigger than consumerism. Teach your kids that too. Be like the Who’s down in Whoville who didn’t need all the bells and whistles to make Christmas special. Make it something sacred instead.

Namaste
