Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift: “You are undergoing radical growth in your belief systems. Now is the time to challenge old attitudes and question previous expectations. You are in an extraordinary time. Great leaps forward can be made in a moment. The world you thought you knew can suddenly break open, and a new world can become your reality.”

“Buddhists sometimes speak of the ‘beginner’s mind’ – that which assumes nothing and therefore is open to everything. A spiritual psychologist might call this the ‘inner child,’ as it is innocent, curious, unfixed and always learning. It doesn’t get stuck on an answer having to be one way. There is openness to the unknown with curiosity instead.

Old souls can sometimes find it hard to recapture their ‘not knowingness’. Asking someone with a lot of life experience, who may have become a bit world-weary, to drop expectations and look at the world through fresh eyes can be challenging. Yet life becomes much more energizing and interesting when you are open and don’t hold expectations about what will be. Suddenly, you are receptive to the Universe helping you in ways that, in the past, you did not believe possible – all because you kept an open mind.

If you are feeling that you don’t really know yourself, your relationships or your place in the world as you once did – if you are feeling that what you once held to be certain now seems to be a little shaky – these are signs that you are going through a paradigm shift. This will bring you new perceptions that will free you to be in the world in new ways. You will find yourself shedding old limits, fears and misconceptions. You are stepping beyond what you have known. You are a bit like a traveler in a new city feeling awkward until she gets the ‘lay of the land’ and how things operate in that new place. As you trust the unexpected and unknown, the Universe will be able to help you in unexpected and previously unknown ways.

If you find yourself questioning the views in mass media or spoken in the conversations that those around you are having, take heart and know that you are awakening from a fear-based world into a love-filled reality. Your confusion will soon transform into joy at discovering that you are free and have no reason to be afraid.

You are encouraged by the Universe to embrace the power you have to be a free thinker. Accept the accelerated mental shift happening for you, even if it creates temporary uncertainty or discomfort. Dare to think thoughts of love rather than lower your vibration by choosing thoughts of fear. Trust, for something helpful and empowering is happening in your soul.”

Invocation: “Through divine grace and unconditional love, I open my mind to the higher truth of love. May my mind be cleansed from conditioning and gently opened to the light of love. I am willing to unlearn what no longer serves me. I am willing to receive teachings and information, guidance and assistance from those beings of pure light and unconditional love that can assist me on my life journey, no. May my paradigm shift bring me closer to peace, love, empowerment and happiness. May this process be held in guardianship by the Universe, with grace, mercy and tenderness. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

As we step into November things are still shifting and changing. The energy is slowly but surely lifting. We have 15 days left of the Venus retrograde until she goes direct. Our healing journey is two thirds of the way to completion. How are you feeling? This is a good time to check in.

What is going on right now in your life? Have you faced your shadow side? Or hidden from it? Have you brought the darkness up into the light to be examined, understood and released? There is still time to do so. This may have been an uncomfortable process. Maybe you feel that things are happening ‘to you’ instead of being created ‘by you.’ If this is the case, the universe is working with you in order to release victim mentality and ask you to take full responsibility for your life. This is the only way to take full control of your powers of creative manifestation. This is an invitation to let your self imposed limitations go and really embrace your power.

There may have been struggles around love and relationships as well as finances. These are the main aspects of the Venus in retrograde, and really what they boil down to is self-worth. How have you handled any financial curve balls? How have you interacted in your closest relationships? Did you change what needed to change? Did you adjust your expectations or release them entirely where necessary? Did you have the courage to let go of any toxic relationships? Do you see yourself as valuable, lovable and worthy of a higher connection?

Anything is possible for us if we can just do the prep work. Finish clearing out the old and making space for the new. Focus on healing your heart. Know that abundance is a pleasant side effect of self-love. Know that you are drawing to you what you most desire, and making the room in your heart to receive it.

See the image in the picture, the door opening, the light streaming out. Notice the vulnerability of the women as she prepares to walk through it, free of burdens, only her own true self; complete freedom and self acceptance. Know that once you have completed your journey down to the underworld and back, the forty days and forty nights of introspection and transformation will be complete, this woman (or man) will be you. Set the intention that you will move forward fearlessly into the next chapter of your life.

Namaste

Hanging Man

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hanging Man, from The Sirian Starseed Oracle Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Hanging Man: “Like a pre-born infant in the womb, reversing itself to prepare for passage out of the state of suspended animation of one world and into the next, Hanging Man is observing reality from an inverted perspective. He is the stilled pendulum, at rest: a potential energy disengaged, floating, meditating, surrendering.

Starseed is confronted with the possibility that there will be times on the path when she or he will need to look at things from a different perspective. There will be epiphanies, when reversals will bring opportunities to be reborn. Sacrificing one’s position on an issue and looking at it from another direction may bring enlightenment.

Hanging Man appears to be waiting to be reborn, as many of us describe it, into a new spiritual consciousness. He (or she) is on a vision quest, opening to an altered state of awareness, experiencing new insights.

This key is associated with meditation, selflessness, new perspectives, reversal of ideas, silence, stillness.

When a querent works with this key, the questions that arise might be the following: What do I need to meditate on? How do I need to look at things in a different way? What am I waiting for clarity on? How am I feeling suspended in time – on hold? How can I let go of any desired outcome in the matter and just relax? How am I stuck?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

We have been working hard on ourselves, particularly over these last two and a half weeks. We have been bringing the shadows into the light. Shedding all the those old layers. Getting ready to build ourselves back up with more love and light than we ever thought possible. We are surrendering to the Divine plan. And now, we are being asked to throw away the remnants of all of our outmoded belief systems. This includes releasing all vestiges of old limitations that we may have set up to protect ourselves, or we may have had projected upon us by others and have continued to honour unnecessarily. We no longer need to be protected from ourselves. We must move forward with a new perspective about what is possible.

Ask that all the shadows come to light and that you may have the strength and courage you need to deal with each and every single one. By doing this, you take full responsibility for your life, past, present and future. You take full control. You have the ability to forgive, to be grateful, to understand the lessons and you have the power to release and move forward.

Every morning and every night ask that you be filled with as much light as you can possibly hold in your physical body at this moment in time. Set the intention that you allow your cells to be flooded with Light. Each time you ask, you will receive. Each time you will receive more than the last. You will raise your vibration and you will change your physical form as you do so. You will literally become Lighter. You can also ask to be filled with the high vibrational resonance of joy, love and happiness, even ecstasy. By the Grace of the Universe.

Turn off your television and step back from the drama to heal yourself for as you do so, you heal those around you and the planet. Take time to meditate. Take time to incorporate deep breathing into your day as this is the bridge to the higher dimensions. Drink more pure water. Eat Lighter, plant-based foods. Get outside every day. Incorporate music for the purpose of healing and uplifting.

These rituals will assist you in shifting your perspective. They will purify you, body, mind and spirit and quantum jump you into ascension. With a brand new perspective of just what is possible.

Namaste

The Singer Of Courage

The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries' Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries’ Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries’ Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Courage: “Bravery, Sublimation of Fear, Moral Strength”

“Someone once said that courage is not the absence of fear but that which enables us to experience fear and not be stopped by it. It is also what enables us to do what we believe to be right even when there is pressure from others around us to do otherwise. It is what enables us to go ahead into the unknown or the perilous, where there are no guarantees of safety or security.

In our lives we are often, even constantly, confronted with a new world, a new way of being in the world, a new way of seeing and of being seen. Ordinary living takes courage, and to rise above the ordinary into the extraordinary takes even more courage. One of the keys to courage is to consider the fear and find a way to let the energy of the fear itself power the action. That is true courage.

Often people think of courage as being part of  high heroism. It is, but it also has its quiet, hidden side as well – and that may require greater courage because we cannot expect the rewards of praise and approval for it. For example, no courage is needed to be unhappy and self-pitying. We do not need to be self-disciplined or wise for that. However, to open our hearts to the risks and vulnerability of joy and trust requires all of those things, especially courage.

Within each of us, there is the terrified inner mouse, and there is the brave inner heart. Either part of us can take over from the other. We get to choose which is in charge. The mouse is a magician with only one trick. It can cast an illusion that it is as big as an elephant. Then fear nearly overwhelms us – but we still have choice. Learning to live with and manage the reactive animal within involves transforming emotions like rage and fear into courage through self-discipline and the help of the Singer of Courage.”

Starter Reading: “Most people have decided by the age of three or four whatever they must do in order to survive. Form this decision, this belief about how the world is, most of our fears and self-limitations grow. Have we the courage to discover and break through these limiting beliefs, awaken to greater possibilities, and go for our objectives?

We need to transcend our fears and accept the gift of courage.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

“Faery Wings, formed of shifting light, emotion, and energy

are the manifestation of the power of those beings that

transcend the mundane world.”   – Brian Froud

What if, every single day we woke up with endless possibilities in front of us. We could do whatever we wanted, go wherever we wanted, meet whoever, eat whatever and generally experience complete fulfillment? What if we could be lead by our passions and our insatiable curiosity and zest for life? What would you do differently? Where would you go? Who would you see? What would you do? What would you leave behind?

What if you decided to take steps towards those things despite your current circumstances? Decided that you would make the necessary changes to reconfigure your life direction towards fulfillment? Degree by degree, step by step, committed action by committed action. You could completely redesign and restructure your life.

It takes courage to change. It’s not always easy. But it’s worth it if you can just take the steps with faith and trust in the Universe and yourself. Knowing that you are completely supported, unconditionally loved, and continuously guided towards the path of your Highest Good.

Every single day, you wake up with endless possibilities in front of you. See them. Have courage. Take the leap of faith.

Change. Transform. Adjust. Assimilate. Integrate. Imagine. Create. Manifest. Trust.

Breathe.

Be

Bright Destiny

Published October 5, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Bright Destiny, from the Love Your Inner Goddess, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Bright Destiny, from the Love Your Inner Goddess, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante

In A Reading: “It’s OK to feel unclear or even confused about what is happening in your life or within you at this time. It is like that because you are going through soul growth. Things will become clear in time. For now, however, let the process happen. Fear can make us let the process happen. Fear can make us try to force something that is not quite ready yet. Do not try to impose a meaning, take action or understand it all prematurely. Do not think too hard! When it is time for you to act, you will know it. It is OK to relax and trust that the moment of clarity will come when the time is right.”

Spiritual Guidance: “To become truly yourself, shining your divine beauty and light, you will go through a process of releasing what is no longer right and true for you. Like the caterpillar who sheds the chrysalis when it is time to emerge as the butterfly, you will let go of the person you once through you needed to be. This can feel freeing, exciting. It can also seem frightening. You may feel crazy sometimes, trying to hold onto a past that is no longer available to you and grasping for a future that is yet to be. Sometimes, it can feel like a dark night of the soul, filled with questioning and confusion. Others may not understand what is happening, and you may feel as though you cannot really explain it, either. In such times, we have to trust that all the changes and uncertainty are part of a process of growth – letting go in order to open up to something amazing and new. This is happening for you now. You do not have to be afraid. You are going through this because you are ready for it, even if you think you are not. There is a loving reason for all of it, even if you cannot see that right now. Put your faith in the mystery. Trust that the answers will come – and so will that joy of all that you have grown into. Stay true to your path and know that you have a bright destiny ahead.”

Sacred Ritual: “Place your hands in prayer and bow your head. Feel like you are surrendering, letting go. As you do so, a beautiful light shines all around you, holding you safe and bringing peace to your heart. Let your heart feel light, and smile gently.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

You may find yourself wondering exactly who you are and how you fit into the world. What are your dreams? What is truly important to you? Who do you love, and who is let in close to your heart?

All these things have been shifting and changing throughout this year. What used to seem important may no longer hold your attention. What you used to be passionate about may have faded. This can be confusing as you find yourself wondering what is truly important. It is even possible to feel some grief around who you used to be when you realize that you are so far from that person now.

But all of this is part of the process. The shifts that have happened are vital to your continued growth. Many of us have shifted from the material to the spiritual. From the ‘stuff’ to the experience. We are aware of the time passing faster, of the daily distractions. Of the social conditioning and the expectations of others. And we yearn for something simpler. Something deeper.

This is the perfect time to revisit your hopes, wishes, dreams and goals. What do you wish to create? How do you wish to finish this year, and how do you wish to start the next? The new moon is coming up on the 9th, which is the perfect time to set intentions; you are planting the seeds of the future.

Getting really clear is the first step. Use your imagination to visualize all the details. Write it all down. Give yourself permission to recreate yourself and your life.

Create your own bright destiny.

After The Storm

Published September 30, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

After The Storm, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

After The Storm: “There’s a thunderstorm about. It is either headed your way or just passing through now. Don’t make a thunderstorm mean more than what it is, though. You don’t have to fear it. You might even feel excitement about it. After all, a thunderstorm is just nature’s way of gathering energy together that needs to be released. With a release of tension, relief and freedom soon follow, often with a fresh perspective and perhaps the gift of a promising hopeful vision for your future.

Perhaps the particular storm building within you or around you is causing you to quake in your boots. It might be a storm of building emotions, threatening to erupt or already exploding, seemingly beyond your conscious control. You might feel an uncomfortable sense of emotional or psychological pressure within and if something doesn’t happen – and soon – you fear you might burst! You may also sense that these are forces operating beyond your control. And you would be right.

There is, in life and in the creative process, a need to allow for wild storms. There will be those precious moments of peace beforehand and the release and revitalization that follows, yet the storm in the middle is essential! It is a natural part of the creative process. Without this building and releasing of energy, we would suffer from boredom and stagnancy. You may prefer the excitement of the storm, or the fresh, open feeling that accompanies its clearing. You may find it confronting to be faced with the power of something in which you can only participate, rather than control. Either way, the storm wisdom offers you the gift of bringing things to a head, and clearing them away, so that the energy can be freed from a pattern that has had its day, and is ready to become something new.

Sometimes the pressures that fuel the storms of our lives have been building up for a long time, without us being fully aware of it. It might be pressure from our own minds, creating unnecessary burdens upon us, such as burdens of fear or self-doubt. It could be pressure to appear a certain way, or to fight against life out of a mistaken belief that this is necessary for survival. Sometimes the pressure is little more than the impossible dream of perfection and a need to gently, or even with great dramatic flourish, cast that aside, so that you can dare to be what you are and create from your heart.

Even if you are not sure what the storm is ‘about’ do not lose confidence in your ability to successfully bear its progression, until you are safely at the other side of the experience. Even amongst the chaos of change and in moments of anxiety, know that you have so much light and trust in your heart that you can see the storm is but a passing process, and nothing that need worry you.

If you can’t sense the storm yet, this oracle is a portent for you. The storm is coming and you can, if you wish, feel the beautiful exhilarating gift of it, as you are empowered to cast aside what has been, and receive the gift of a fresh, new take on things. Your confidence is to remain intact – whatever is happening or soon will happen in your life, this storm of sorts, is transformational and supportive of your growth. It is going to clear any cobwebs and free you, open you, to new creative energy and life. Remember – there can be no rainbows without a little rain.

This oracle is also confirmation that if you have been praying for help, your prayers have been heard and the great creative intelligence of our universe is responding to you, stepping in and shaking things up so that situations can be sorted out according to a greater wisdom. So let go, hold only to your inner self and allow everything to be cleansed in the sacred storm.”

Healing Process: “Find a place where you can be alone and have some privacy, either inside or perhaps outside in nature. When you are ready, repeat the following, where possible with your arms up and open to the sky:

Storms so wild
Storms of grace
I call your blessing
Into my heart now

May I release and let go
May I be revitalized and grow
I open up my heart
To you now

Storms of grace
I stand my ground
As I allow your magic
To cleanse and surround

Any outgrown energy
Which I no longer need
Anything which will sap
Or deplete rather than feed

Storms of grace
Merciful earth
with your help
I experience rebirth”

When you have completed your declaration, simply place your hands in prayer at your heart and close your eyes for a moment. Breathe in and out and be aware of yourself, what you feel and what is happening in your body – from the top of your head to the soles of your feet.

Then say, “Through divine creative genius, this is now so.”
You have completed your healing process.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Storm is electrifying, energizing; it forces us to move, to take action, to take cover to prepare. Storm is clearing, purging, awakening. It stirs up the energy, pushing stagnancy away. Storm is a much necessary and much needed force of change and transformation if we allow it to be so.

Storm can be frightening or it can be empowering. We can try to stand against the storm or we can wait it out, grateful as it sweeps us up and out of our ruts and into something new. We can embrace the energy and use it to our advantage. We can surrender to it and move with it instead of against it.

Change is coming or happening now. This storm has been brewing for a while now, and it is about to unleash it’s full power in your life. How you navigate the storm will determine it’s outcome in your life. Will you allow your life to be swept free of the old?

And after the storm…. Will you have willingly let go what needed to go and made space for something new?

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

Spirit Of Truth

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
