Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit Of Truth, from the Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Spirit Of Truth: “I am the Spirit Of Truth, the foundation upon which all things are built. I open the way to understanding to an acceptance of the reality of things as they are. I strip away the veils of self deception and walk the straight path of honour. I do not turn away from truth, however harsh it may seem; and my steps are always fueled with purpose and a determination to penetrate to the heart of any matter.”

Spirit Of Truth

In a primitive world of fundamental instincts and elemental risks, there was little room for subterfuge. To survive was to live by timeless truths of body and spirit. In today’s world, truth is one of the benchmarks by which we judge ourselves – and is a necessary ingredient in the evolution of civilized values. The Spirit Of Truth ennobles us in an aura of integrity. As we walk our chosen path, it helps us to measure our progress accurately, usefully punctures our self delusions, and gives us a truer understanding of anyone en route who might offer us false security or seductive rewards.

Interpretations: Facing the future with open eyes. Responding to challenges with honesty and truth. Belief in the truthfulness of others. Seeing beyond illusion. Clear sightedness.”*

~by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Why do we lie to ourselves? Because we think that it saves us from experiencing pain; yet all it does it put the pain off until later as we must experience it at some point, particularly if it becomes a block in our energy, stored in the physical body. We can be such optimists! No matter how dire the circumstances, no matter how miserable we are, no matter how stagnant and stuck and mired in the muck of the mundane… We can convince ourselves that things are going to get better…. even if we do nothing to change them. And sometimes this is true, miracles do happen. But isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Refusing to make even the smallest change to shake things up because we are afraid to rock the boat?

So we lie to ourselves instead. We tell ourselves that we are in love. We tell ourselves that we are happy with our jobs. We tell ourselves that we are fine the way we are. Which would all be fantastic… if that is how we actually felt deep down inside. But unfortunately, that is not exactly how the Law Of Attraction works! It goes on those deep feelings, the ones that feel strangled deep beneath. The ones that urge us to make a change. The ones that tell us that everything will be OK if we just take the leap of faith. But so often we don’t… as we stand at the threshold and wait for someone to save us; someone to give us permission; someone to open the door for us. And we wait. And we tell ourselves that it’s OK; that we really don’t deserve more than this anyway.

I am the Spirit Of Truth. Here to tell you, Dear Ones, that if you open the door, I will show you the truth of your Soul. I will lead you back to your Light. I will lift the veil of the Deep Forget and show you what you are truly capable of. But you must want to change. You must want to remember.

When you want to remember, call on me. I will be waiting.

We will take the first step towards truth together.

Namaste

Perception ~ Emerald Stone

Perception

Perception, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman: Perception ~ Emerald Stone

Perception ~ Emerald Stone: “The heart knows what the eyes cannot see.”

The Legend: “A young princess wanders into her untended garden. As she claws through the decaying undergrowth, she finds a brilliant emerald stone. The stone speaks and tells the princess to open an old wooden door. She enters a dark corridor and the door slams shut. Afraid, she moves forward until her hand falls upom another door. It opens to reveal the same garden she left behind; only now it is beautiful, filled with flowers, butterflies, and birds. It is magnificent and familiar.

Inspiration: “Often our journey brings us full circle, leaving us to wonder why things happen. Emerald Stone teaches us to follow through on whatever is before us. Going back is not an option.

Personal Inquiry: “What in my life needs tending? How good will I allow myself to feel?

Key Ideas: “Transformation in the heart; change in perception; the unknown; promise of a richer experience

Key Words: “Beauty, open heartedness, appreciation”

Meditation:

“Begin to imagine the emerald Stone. When you see it, place it in

your ‘untended garden’. Feel waves of Emerald light filling you with courage.

Emerald Stone may have some thoughts to help you. Listen carefully.

When you are ready, see what has changed.”*

– Tori Hartman

There is so much beautiful symbolism in this card! The Emerald Stone, which represents our heart chakra, at it’s optimal; open and radiating bright white love and green healing light. The butterflies, signs of transformation and change, rebirth and possibility. The little green birds; one in a flight of freedom and one in the branch, seeing things from a higher perspective. There is also the darkness behind the door, which she is turning away from and towards the light, bright, beautiful and abundant garden… her palm open to receive love and abundance. And finally, the purple of her dress, representing intuition and the third eye chakra, the white which represents the crown chakra and the gold, which represents the solar plexis.

This card is telling us to trust our hearts and also our intuition. To trust in ourselves, and know that what our hearts whisper to us is the truth. It speaks of taking flight, of trusting in our own strength and to have an objective perspective. It is telling us to know that our hearts can guide us through the darkness and fear, into the light that awaits us. That we must trust in our path, work to strengthen our connection to our higher selves and that the future is indeed bright and not scary. Finally, it show us that our job is one of action, of having enough faith to listen to our guidance and walk through the door, leaving fear behind once and for all; remaining in a state of allowing. Receptivity is key.

It is time to walk through the door, keeping your focus forward, knowing that you are taken care of. The Universe will provide.

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 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 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 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

Dee
