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 Mystery

The Mystery,

The Mystery, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Mystery, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron Reid

The Mystery ~ The Sacred Journey Markers

“This marker directs you into the unknowable Mystery of your journey. It is the sacred place where all things are created but are not yet formed. It points the way to pure power and potential, which meets the magic of intention. It tells you that the magical unknowable forces of destiny and fate are working in your life. The forces that you can never fully understand or control are, indeed, weaving their magic around you to help you to fulfill your true purpose.

There is, however, a warning to be humble here: The Mystery reveals itself only when it chooses, and not when or how you demand. The cosmic laws operate here outside of time and space, outside of human influence and intellect. Only hindsight will reveal their patterns. Only total trust and the deepest faith can be your allies when the Mystery appears as a Sacred Journey Marker on your path.

Sometimes it may seem as if you are going backwards, but truly, if you look at a spiral, it goes up, back and around, reaching upward, although it may seem for a time that you are not. You are indeed progressing. Trust the Mystery, and keep going!

For now, trust that the thread of your life is woven into the pattern of the Mystery with beauty, grace, strength, and purpose. This marker is an auspicious and profound omen that shows you that you are on the correct path.”*

~ By Colette Baron Reid

Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn; Divine Timing is at play in your life at this time; although you may feel that things are at a bit of a standstill, there is much going on behind the scenes. We cannot see the seed sprout below the soil, we must have faith that it will break through the surface at the perfect time for it’s growth. Such is so with your manifestations at the moment; progress seems slow or non-existent, yet it is in a profoundly creative phase. Think first trimester of a pregnancy, when you know that a woman is pregnant, yet she does not look so; you must have faith that the baby is thriving in the perfect environment, and all will grow and expand as it should. With Saturn in retrograde, it might be easy to sink into victim mode, feeling sorry for yourself that things aren’t manifesting as fast as you would like them to. Instead, take full responsibility and put yourself to work setting intention and using positive emotion to fuel your creation process.

Perfect cycles; perfect rhythms. Divine manifestation and creation using the building blocks of light and love. Once you have set your intention clearly, let go of the expectations and let it happen. Let faith fill your heart and trust guide you on. Know that your prayers have been heard, and are being answered, and even if they feel miles away, the Universe works in mysterious and magical ways. Bringing dreams from the Unmanifest dimensions to the physical plane are simple for this awe inspiring force of Love.

Surrender to the process and find stillness. Dive into your peace while your desires find you.

All is in perfect order.

And so it is.

Namaste

River ~ Movement

River ~ Movement

River ~ Movement, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: River ~ Movement, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

River ~ Movement: “The softened light from the sun falls upon this meandering river, the sparkles reflecting the gentle movement taking place in the river’s body.

She moves easily around the curves and rocks, sometimes gently, as portrayed in this card, and sometimes quite rapidly and intensely. Still, the river’s movement will always eventually land her in the bosom of great Grandmother Ocean.

Some of her water will evaporate along the way to feed the waters of the sky – just as it takes place in any other bodies of water – and bless the land and the seas with replenishment in a perfectly natural cycle that helps the planet sustain itself. Water if our lifeblood, a nutrient more essential than food. The flow of water throughout our own bodies serves as a metaphor for how Life itself flows through us and expresses as us.

“Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of the river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along.

Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that offer you clues about what direction your egoless Self is to be making. “Go with the flow” is more than a trite aphorism here. IT is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Things may have been a little bumpy lately, but take heart, you are almost there! Surrender to the transformation you are going through, even if it seems scary right now. Fear is a block, and will only slow down the inevitable. You can do this, just breathe.

We are tackling a challenging cycle in our lives right now; an ending and a beginning. Yet here we are, feeling right in the middle…  in limbo… and asking ourselves if this is really what we signed up for! Where’s the security? Where is the safety? Bring back the complacency??? NO! All is in perfect Divine Order and by trusting in the process, the process will become easier. Loosen up on the reigns and allow. Surrender to the Divine. Trust in the Universe.

Breathe

It may have seemed lately like things have been moving slower or even faster than we would like; or possibly they appeared to be moving in the complete opposite direction we expected. Or, maybe we are actually getting what we wished for and are now on the ride of our lives. (If that’s not happening for you, it is about to, buckle up!) Whichever way it is playing out for you at this time, know that it is exactly right for you… even if you are not quite feeling it!

Decide right now to stop swimming upstream and relax. Breathe, center and ground your energy and detach from the drama. Free your ego by trusting in your Soul.

You are on the right path.

Go with the flow….

Namaste

The Lord Of The Shadows

Published February 1, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Lord Of The Shadows, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Lord Of The Shadows, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Lord Of The Shadows: “This is a card of change, moving from shadow into light. Some things that have hampered this change are put aside to make the transition possible. The God of Nature in his aspect of The Lord Of The Shadows, ruler of the underworld, pauses in the shadows of the forest to watch an elderly man with his grandson walk away from a well with a full bucket of water. In early times the well was a metaphor for life force energy, the magical waters of life that sustained one’s creative spirit and joy of being. The man and child show the generations that flow from the water of life, the satisfaction of a life well lived under the bright light of the Sun.

The Lord Of The Shadows, with an air of patience and kindness, holds in his hand a twig of yew. His presence suggests a life in transition, with the obstacles to transformation being cleared away. There needs to be a clean sweep for the right changes to come to fruition, for only in this way is there progress and improvement. Sometimes this comes as a matter of course in one’s life. Refusal to accept a new outlook may engender a loss of hope, stagnation, or a lack of growth. It is from the cleansing that new optimism arises, removing negative influences and allowing positive ones to enter. Old situations give way to new ones, and the past is left behind as a person moves on, released from prior commitments.

As with Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest and all worlds are linked in hallows, there is a quiet knowing with this card that cleansing is taking place in one’s life and there is an opportunity to commune with the inner self. From this comes the insight needed to release negativity and take steps toward a positive change and new direction.

The yew tree, with its red berries, represents the underworld, change, rebirth, and renewal. A luna moth, for transitions and moving towards the light, flies gracefully from the shadows towards the sunlit countryside.”

Card Meaning: “Change, moving from the shadow into the light, finding new meaning in life, a turning point in life, optimism, removal of obstructions, creating positive changes, new outlook and actions replace the outmoded.”

As Challenger: “Stagnation, Immobility, Resistance to Change, Self Evaluation Needed.”

Prompt Words: “Change, Transformation, Turning Point for Improvement.”*

~By Ann Moura

At first glance we worry that this card may be of darkness, not of light. But then we look deeper and find its true meaning. This is a coming out of the darkness and into the light. Profound change and transformation on the heels of the big lunar energies of yesterday. Stepping into a new month.

Something is falling away right now. Are you clinging on tightly afraid to experience the new? Or are you surrendering with grace and ease? It is happening either way, your reaction is up to you. Meet it with struggle or embrace it. Free will gives you either option; you choose. You take responsibility.

Doors closing and doors opening. Cleansing and clearing and purging to create the space for something new. In order to maximize it, simply allow yourself to ride the waves and receive it in all it’s mysterious and magical glory.

And so it is

Namaste

Rainbow Dragon

Published December 19, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Rainbow Dragon, from the Sacred Power Oracle Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rainbow Dragon, from the Sacred Power Oracle Card deck, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Rainbow Dragon: “Be honest with yourself and others. Release your burdens.”

“Floating within the Golden Ascension rays, the rainbow dragon is making you aware of what is required for you to act in truth and honesty. Bringing the vibration from the Golden Ray, the rainbow dragon opens connections to your higher self, the central sun, and angelic and ascended master realms, while centering you in the present.

Through the dragon’s movements, the frequency and vibration of the rainbow spectrum dissipates negative blocks and Karmic debris – but only if you are willing to accept the change required to break down walls and barriers that stop you from moving forward.

Powerful and unstoppable, once you activate your rainbow dragon, prepare for swift and sudden change! Bringing harmony and change in a positive direction, the rainbow dragon is the protector, harmonizer, destructor and creator all in one.

Connecting to the elements, the dragon is here to assist you in raising your vibration and consciousness through the energy of the elements. As the creator of action, you are encouraged to follow your truth with honesty and integrity.

Right now, honesty is required in all areas of your life. When you begin to unburden yourself, you allow yourself to be open to the gifts of the universe. Now is the time to get busy!

Ask the elements for assistance to work through your present issues. Which element can help you in your current situation? Focus on the Rainbow Dragon; which colour are you most attracted to in the card?

Earth ~ Pink and Purple ~ Grounding, nature, practical life-cycles, balance and harmony.
Air ~ White ~ Breath and meditation, clarity of consciousness
Water ~ Blue ~ Accessing and freeing emotion, truth and expression
Fire ~ Red and Orange ~ Finding your passion
Spirit ~ Purple ~ Placing you on your life direction, harmonizing Yin and Yang energies, emergence of one with spiritual law (identifying patterns and rules governing life, creation, awareness and higher frequency.)”

~ By Anna Stark

A special Thank You to Louis Dyer for this amazing artwork… I could look at this spectacular dragon all day long. The colours. The majesty. The power. The perfect alignment of Universal energies. The infusion of colour. All on offer to us now.

Today is my birthday. (I wish I was a bit more excited but as I get older I find I feel more contemplative rather than celebratory.) However, this is the beginning of a new chapter, so a big Yey to that! I AM ready for more. For expansion. For higher awareness. For ascension of consciousness. For more love in my life, more light and more healing. Freedom, adventure, passion and joy. Bring it on! I AM truly ready for transformation on every level.

And you? What do you intend with only twelve days left of this year… the new moon just last night, Winter Solstice in two days and the full moon beckoning us into the new Year? Feel free to share your intentions, dreams and/or desires on my facebook page… writing them down makes them more powerful. Sharing them out there in the world amplifies them. Or if you are more comfortable, write them down at home and place them under your pillow. Most importantly, Be honest. Be absolutely true to you.

For the Highest Good Of All and So It Is

Namaste

Yellow

Yellow, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue.

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Yellow, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue.

Yellow: “Flexibility ~ Adaptability ~ Personal Power.”

“This card asks if you are being flexible in a particular situation. It is time to stand in your power and be adaptable to change. Yellow represents the third (solar plexus) chakra. This colour pertains to boundaries, so be sure to define yours. It is time to be assertive. Allow yourself to be an individual within a group. Stand up for what you believe in. Identify what is important to you with regard to principles and ethics. Discernment needs to come into play at this time.

This card could be revealing an imbalance in your third chakra. Feeling highly competitive with someone else is a sign of this imbalance. You may also feel defensive or insecure, or have conflicts with others.

Additional Meanings For This Card: Archangels Uriel, Metatron, and Raziel are all associated with this symbol. A shift is about to occur in a job or relationship. It is time to empower yourself or another. You are overthinking this situation.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue.

After some time to reflect and center, we are being asked to step fully into our power. If we have allowed others to guide us to what they think is best for us, whether it is with good intention or not, we have given some of our personal power away. If we remain in a job or relationship we are unhappy with, we are also giving some of our personal power away.

It’s time to take back your power. With the intention that making your own decisions and creating your own reality will be for the highest good of all concerned. Taking back your power does not mean you are hurting others, or on a power trip, it simply means that you are taking the wheel in your own life from now on, and you are going to follow your heart and pursue your passions and dreams. Despite what others may believe you should be doing. And knowing that doing so will empower others to do the same, even if they are a bit uncomfortable at first with the changes they see in you. Trust that it is for the best, and that everyone will end up happier than they are now.

Having faith in yourself will help you to heal your solar plexus, or third, chakra. Affirm daily that you are smart, capable, beautiful and creative. Dig deep and find the confidence to move forward knowing that your angels are cheering you on! Sidestep those who would hold you back or compete with you. Know that if you feel “less than” or competitive with another, that this is old, low density “lack” energy, and by letting them be who they are and succeed, you too can move forward and succeed. There is ALWAYS more than enough to go around.

Affirmations:

“The Universe is plentiful, generous and abundant.”
“There is always more than enough to go around.”
“The Universe Will Provide.”

Namaste

Seven Of Earth

Published October 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seven Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Seven Of Earth: “Meditation, Grounding, Connection, Cycles, Change, Interaction, Purification, Stress”

Key Phrases: “Get out into nature. Let Gaia heal you. Connection between self and the world. All is connected and has influence. Address the stress. Meditate and still your mind. Put down the tech toys. Time to physically interact and connect.”

Meaning Of The Card: “The Seven Of Earth symbolizes a need to both nurture and maintain a connection between spirit, self, and the world around you. Ground, integrate, and connect.

To feel and embrace this connection does not require any belief in the Divine, but a simple awareness that all is connected on an energetic level. At this time, look out into the world to see, feel, and understand the cycles of life and nature and how they affect and influence you.

Over time, life and day-to-day demands may begin to wear away at us, making us irritable and reactive … less adaptable and flexible … more fearful of the changes going on within us, and around us. All of these things can make us feel alone and disconnected.

The Seven Of Earth symbolizes the importance of connection and being part of the natural world, but also the need to address areas of potential stress in your life before they become a problem.

It is time to meditate and still your mind. Make a habit of taking time to sit and meditate in nature, and allow all the stress to flow out of you and into the earth. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax and become one with Gaia and Great Spirit. Reconnect. You do not have to believe. Just allow yourself to be still, at peace, and free of the impurities and worries that cloud your sense and good judgment.”

Potential Blockage: “It is often easy to become focused on one aspect of our lives to the exclusion of all else. This can result in a real disconnect from the world and life that goes on around us.

We are all part of the world, and yet most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, secluded and closed off to both nature and real physical interaction.

Are you missing out? Has  your world become a very insular place consisting of home and office? Do you now do the majority of your socializing and human interaction via phone or computer? When was the last time you were out in the world connecting with others in a tangible manner – without looking at your latest piece of tech every five minutes?

Seven Of Earth as Challenger signifies a need to step away from technology and reconnect with family and the community at large in a mindful and present manner.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

Today we are beckoned towards a deeper level of connection through ourselves to the natural world. Unplug. Ground. Breathe. Plant yourself in the present moment. Take a much needed break from the information highway, the daily routine. Get outside. That’s an order!

Take stock of your current stress level and what the causes of this stress are. How can you streamline? How can you release some of the stress before it becomes overwhelm? Do you need to ask for assistance? Delegate tasks that are weighing you down? Are you feeling disconnected? Isolated? Overburdened? Alone?

Heal yourself by aligning with the rhythms and cycles of the outside world. Look to Mother Nature; where she is at is where part of you is at too. The phases of the Moon; the position of the Stars in the sky; how much Sun we get in a day… it all contributes to how you are feeling. The weather, the foods available at this particular time to harvest. What you need to wear in order to keep you warm or cool. It all makes a difference. Listen to your body. Nourish it well. Exercise it. Hydrate it. Align it with nature rather than the man made world. Make space in your mind and in your heart for peace, calm and harmony.

Take breaks from people and situations that feel draining or toxic. Schedule some time for yourself every day, even if only for a few minutes of deep breathing or meditation. If possible, get outside for a walk, take a yoga class or express your creativity. Find ways that resonate with you to ground and realign with your life’s purpose.

Namaste
