Keywords: “Water, the moon, bounty and abundance, intuition, wisdom, insight, knowledge, sage advice, divination, poetry, creative pursuits, higher perspective, clarity”

“The Coll Hazel initiates in the ninth lunation and includes the celebration of the summer solstice, also known as Alban Heruin, Midsummer, and Litha. Here we give our gratitude for the abundance of Mother Earth. Hazel is about compassion and love for our friends and families – as well as safety and protection, which are important aspects of mothering and nurturing. Hazel supports our emotional life. She honors the moon and the waters of our planet. She supports creative expression in the form of story, poetry, art, song and dance. Hazel brings clarity when we seek advice. The ogham for this tree is Coll and the letters C and K.”

Coll Hazel In A Reading: “Your feminine nature, the changing of the moon, the lunar principle of receptivity and mystery, and the Goddess Sophia of higher wisdom are all relevant now. Your female lineages have something to say to you, as do your spiritual heritages. Take some quiet time to tune in and listen for their nurturing messages. Take your initiation seriously. Find time to sit by a body of water near your home; a lake, the ocean, a river or a stream. This tree suggests appreciation. Appreciate cycles. What cycle are you in right now? This tree suggests acceptance of where you are right now as it is impossible to push the river.

It is time to give gratitude for all that you have and to honor the earth. Notice the abundance around you. This is a time for family time and family reunions. This card invites you to find gratitude for all the mothers in your life. If you require nurturing, cultivate friendships that can support you. Nurture others. Mother each other with compassion. It may be time to heal the mother wound. Perhaps this is the time for forgiveness. If you are a mother, make sure you are representing the best qualities of this role. If not, move towards changing your behaviour. Be the kind of mother that you would like to have yourself.

Spend some time in nature and follow the course of the moon. Consider poetry, divination, and meditation. Call up your  inner muse, as you can find inspiration here. Pay attention to your dreams and creative urges.

You are offered wisdom that can be applied to any situation. Creative solutions are possible. Seek the advice of elders. If you seek clarity this card will offer you sage advice. Go within and ask the ancestors for a specific message for you.”

As Challenger: “Are you ignoring your intuitive knowing? Perhaps you don’t like what you are sensing, as change is indicated. Even so, it is time to pay attention to wisdom that is offered you. Are you resistant to advice?

Are you cut off from other women? From the mothers in your life? Perhaps it is time to heal a mother wounding. Perhaps you are cut off from your family or your connection to Mother Earth. How do you mother yourself? It is time to cease repeating habitual negative messages to yourself. Instead, begin giving yourself the nurturing you require. Offer this to others, as well. Too much criticism separates us from ourselves and others.

Perhaps you are experiencing a creative block. Is it time to learn new skills? Would it help you to work with others to overcome creative obstacles? If so, look to your community. Or it may be that you feel stymied in your pursuits and goals because you are not heeding your intuition. If so, go within and reconnect with your own inner knowing.”

Message: “I represent your own inner wisdom. I am that small, still voice inside that is sometimes hard to hear. I stand up for the heart wisdom that insures life and health for you, your situations, and your mother planet. You’ll find my speaking in a babbling brook or a dense forest. You’ll find me in the fullness of the summer sun. I am part of the paradise in which you live. I produce the hazelnut of wisdom and ancient knowledge. Please take care of me and of yourself and the children of this world. I am the birth of your own dreams and visions. Now is a good time to use your divination tools. It is also a great time to support others and act as a guide or helper.”*

Here we have a message of nurturing, communication, deeper connection and creating community. Tomorrow is Solstice, our longest day of the year and a day of Light, abundance, luck and joy. What will you set as your intention this Summer Solstice? (Or winter solstice if you are in the Southern Hemisphere!) What do you invite into your reality, what have you made space for, what are you focusing on now?

Make a plan now to spend some time outside, in your favourite garden, forest, park or beach. Give yourself time to slow down and enjoy being present. Let your instincts and intuition guide you. Communicate with the trees. Honour every plant and creature. Feel the connection you have with each and every one of them, and the overall energy of the wild space.

If you can, watch the sun go down and the stars come out. Send gratitude for all that you have in your life right now. And meet tomorrow with open heart and open mind. You are stepping into the second chapter of 2018. What magic will it hold in the face of all the chaos? Whatever magic you create.

Namaste

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz, Clarity: from the Crystal Ally Oracle Card deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Crystal Ally Oracle Card deck, by Naisha Ahsian: Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz: “Clarity”

“A beautiful crystal rises above the fog and into the clarity of the night sky. This is the image of “Clarity”, and it represents the effect of Clear Quartz energy. To many people, Clear Quartz is what is meant by the term ‘crystal’. Clear Quartz crystals occur naturally in many different configurations. Generally, these crystals exhibit a single termination of six faces joining at the top to form an apex. Clear Quartz is one of the purest and most versatile forms of crystal, carrying a high, clean echo of the Earth Mother’s energies. Its key word is clarity, as it’s energy clears and amplifies one’s thoughts.

Clear Quartz crystals have traditionally been used to aid in the attainment of a clear and balanced mind and energy. This Ally speaks of becoming a vessel for the Light of Spirit, lending yourself to the service of others and living honestly and without deception or deceit. The high vibration of Clear Quartz aids in the cutting through of cloudiness or mental fog, and the enlightenment of the darkness of density. This Crystal Ally is a recorder of the Earth’s experiences, and has been used by the ancients as a receptacle for knowledge and secrets.

Because of their wonderful ability to carry any energy easily, Clear Quartz crystals will tend to reflect and amplify any energy that they are exposed to. This quality is wonderful when you wish to employ this Ally as a constant prayer generator. By calming and quieting your mind, then concentrating upon one single thought, you will ‘program’ the crystal with the specific energy of your thought. It will continue to carry the heart of your prayer or thought long after you have set it down and moved ahead in your day. Clear Quartz reminds us of the ultimate ideal, that of becoming Light incarnate. To exist in form, yet have the vibration of Spirit, is the goal of every spiritual seer. Clear Quartz exemplifies and encourages this ideal with it’s clarity and beauty.

The Message: When this stone appears as your Ally, you are being asked to clarify yourself so that the Universe can provide you with the answers to your prayers. Perhaps you have been vacillating between two options. The time has come to choose, and to make your choice known. Call upon the energy of Clear Quartz to aid you in becoming clear about the choices that lie before you. It is though clarity of thought and intent that your creations will be made manifest.

Clear Quartz has made it’s spirit known to you in your layout, and you are being notified that the answers to your questions are imminent. Clear Quartz signals a time of deeper understanding of your path. Open yourself to the Divine Light, and allow your future to unfold.

Chakrs: All

Clear Quartz can energize, balance, and clear any of the chakras. It is especially active on the sixth and seventh chakras, promoting mental clarity and concentration.

Affirmation:
I am clear in my thought, intent and desire.

I reflect the clarity of the Divine mind.”*

~ By Naisha Ahsian

Are you stepping in to May with clear purpose and intent? Our ability to manifest our reality has increased tremendously over the last months and even weeks. We need to be clear of what we are creating because more of it is sure to come.

What does your life look like right now? What changes need to happen in order to move forward and what can you give gratitude for in order to attract more of the same? What is important to you? How are you showing up in the world… are you feeling loved and supported, or are you in victim mode? How do you desire to change things for the better, and how can you make positive steps forward from where you are right now?

We are so much more powerful than we think. In fact we are so powerful that we have created all of what we have experienced to date, the good and that bad, from a Soul level. No, we don’t always want to hear that and yes it is much easier to blame others. But as soon as we take full responsibility for what lies behind us and ahead of us, and how we have the power to choose something different, the faster we move forward into something new. And leave all that pain behind.

What if you decided to focus your energy elsewhere? What if you committed to manifesting something totally new. An adventure, an opportunity, a new love. A radical transformation in body, mind and spirit. A letting go of the old and an embracing of the new; no matter how scary it may seem.

Take a few minutes right now to set your intention for the rest of this fertile month. Get really clear. What will you create? How can you see things differently? How can you let go of what is holding you back and embrace something way out of your comfort zone? Write it all down on a piece of paper and either carry it with you or place it somewhere you will see it every day; perhaps your bedside table.

If you have a clear quartz, which most of us do (and if you don’t, go get one! They are affordable and easy to come by!). Use it to program your intentions. Read your intentions out loud while holding the crystal in your right hand. Visualize the intentions going directly into the crystal, filling it up. Ask the crystal to assist you in sticking to your intentions and having the courage to see them through. Wear, carry or place the crystal under your pillow.

And step boldly into your dreams.

Namaste

Third House ~ Messages

Published April 17, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Third House ~ Messages, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Third House ~ Messages, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Third House ~ Messages: “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“Words have power. Now is the time to get your point across. With this card, you may also get a clearer direction in the way to proceed. The Third House also represents neighborhoods and siblings.

The Third House is the area of the astrological chart that reveals how we think, speak and communicate. It signifies our need to know how we think, speak and communicate. It signifies our need to know and demonstrates how we put our concepts and thoughts into words.

You are in search of answers and in need of unlocking mysteries, but your mind is agile and you are able to grasp every detail right now. You may wish to express this mental suppleness through writing, speaking, and researching subject matter which has always intrigued you. Libraries call to you. You may suddenly wake up with an idea that could turn out to be very lucrative. You may even be toying with the idea of writing a book, starting a blog, perhaps a screenplay, or a position at a local news media outlet. There couldn’t be a better time than now.

As well as dreamy or imaginative writing and poetry, the Third House also represents dexterity, swiftness, curiosity, and figuring out the mechanisms of what makes things work. So this could mean expressing yourself about something rather technical.

The Third House, more than any other, is the house of the mind. Mercury is about giving and receiving information. When this card turns up in a reading, there is a need to uncover all that you can and relate the information to others.

Also an area of commerce and sales, when the Third House card presents itself in a reading, it can indicate a time of buying and selling, and becoming involved in retail or transactions made over the Internet.

Issues dealing with siblings may come up. There may be questions you must resolve to do with brothers or sisters. Your neighborhood may even be going through some changes.

The Third House also signifies your neighborhood, so expect events that will make a difference there. For more in-depth information, look at the surrounding cards. If the Moon card is also in the spread, it might indicate secretive actions carried out at night, perhaps meetings, or even vandalism or burglaries are possibilities. If the Mars card is present, look for noise and radical changes you may not be so happy with. With the Saturn card present, it could mean that an area may start to appear old or decrepit. Also, with the Saturn card, be careful how you put your thoughts and feelings into words. Other persons may not be as warm and receptive to your words and ideas as you hope them to be.

This card can also mean you will be talking your way into and out of tough situations. However, you will be mentally able to grapple with issues and sort them out well. Important documents and other paperwork are indicated. This isn’t your everyday type of paper shuffling; the matter will be more significant than the usual.

This card also indicates a fortunate time to start a business of your own, perhaps working in translation, creating software, or something to do with deciphering codes and messages, for example. You may also become involved in studying other languages, or anything related to and working toward a common good.

Meditation and relaxation are suggested when this card presents itself. If the Neptune or Pisces card falls in the spread along with the Third House card, your thoughts are likely inspired ones, and you could be having psychic or mediumistic communications.”

Third House Card In Brief: “Finding the right words; discussion; being of two minds; vacillation; hesitation about stepping into situations; coming to clearer choices; objectivity; short trips; air travel or taking flight; mastering something new; neighborhood events or changes; connecting to the greater mind; owning what you know to be true; being chatty or talkative; closing down emotionally and relying on common sense; turning cold on someone, or someone turning cold on you; hand to eye coordination; games, and figuring out puzzles; intelligence; inventions; numbers and letters; needing to do math; early schooling; scripts; codes; siblings; bargains; signing of contracts; sales and commercial transactions.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “Three Of Pentacles.”

Key Ideas: “Short journeys; the neighbourhood; siblings; signing documents; communication; rumors.”*

~ Susan Sheppard

If there is something that needs to be said, now is the time to clear the air. Be concise and direct, and do not get wrapped up in emotions or drama. Focus on getting your point across in the most simple and powerful means possible. Mercury is returning direct and we are on the heels of the new moon. Things professed at this time have extra power and will manifest swiftly, so think it through first. You may even want to write down what need to be said in order to be able to see it clearly, read it back to yourself and edit where necessary. Written word is very powerful and allows us the maximum amount of time to really think about what we wish to communicate and how we wish it to be received.

Do not let fear hold you back. You are not responsible for the reactions of others, only your action here. Lead with your heart and set the intention that the end result be for the highest good of All involved. Do not use words as weapons, use them as tools. Be absolutely honest, authentic and true to yourself and use your words to heal, transform and empower.

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

Signals, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Signals, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Signals

Quick Read Message: “You need to make your intentions perfectly clear before acting. Plans, directions, and messages of love, romance, and appreciation must be communicated and understood. Act and act now. Do not waste time.

Outcome: “You will make sure all intentions, both romantic and otherwise, are perfectly clear. Plans and directions, as well as messages of love, romance, and appreciation will be exchanged. Communications will be kept flowing.”

The Dream: “A young woman stands before a fiery rose. Eight other flowers rise heavenward like the puffs of smoke used as smoke signals. The woman has conjured up this beautiful fire by quickly rubbing her hands together until a spark sprang from between them to ignite the rose. This spark symbolizes action and information passing from one place to another, generating light and heat in the process. The fast-moving wands emanating from the smoke signals are traveling both toward the woman and toward her objective. Everything is very direct and in motion, making fast progress. Now is the time for her to indicate swift action; to send and receive messages and signals, whether they are of love or new ideas. She knows that time is of the essence because the flames of romance will not burn forever unless they are fed by mutual declarations of love.”

The Awakening: “Immediate action is called for if the things you wish for are to be attained. Initiate communication first and the answering messages will come back to you. Make that call. Act on that new idea. The time is right to respond to the demands of the moment in the most direct way possible. Messages of love and romance are highlighted. Perhaps it is time to tell someone you love them.”

The Enchantment: “Stand in an open place and light a stick of sandalwood incense. Face North and blow a little smoke in that direction. Turn East, South and West, and do the same. Visualize the signals you want to send or receive, all while you chant: “”Wish to heaven now ascend. Time of waiting at an end.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

This message kind of reminds me of the movie, “Love Actually”… which just happens to be my all time favourite Christmas movie. If you haven’t seen it, I do recommend it, although be warned, it is for an adult audience, and maybe not one easily offended! In the movie, there is a theme where someone professes their undying love to someone else, simply because it is Christmas, and at Christmas, you just have to be honest! I kind of see the same theme here.

It might be time to make your move. This is a message of action. Of doing. Of jumping in where you may have held back. Maybe it’s not about professing your undying love; maybe it is about taking a step forward in manifesting your dreams, starting something new or getting out there. But whatever it may mean to you specifically, it is a call for some extra strength and courage. Plus a little just go for it will you?!?

So what is it that you need to do, today, to get the ball rolling in the right direction? Where do you see yourself going? What do you wish to create? Where are you directing your energy?

It could be that you need closure. Maybe you profess your undying love and it all goes sideways and lets you get on with your life! Maybe you meet someone brand new who knocks your socks off. Or maybe there is something wildly creative that has been calling to you for so long…This is passion, in whatever form suits you best right now.

You know what it is cuz as you read this it keeps popping into your head. Ya, that. Do that.

You got it.

Namaste

Three Of Wands

Published November 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Wands, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Wands, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Three Of Wands: “Opportunity”

The Dream: “Three cupids – representing heart, mind, and action – have spontaneously joined together. These bringers of opportunity sense the imminent realization of a wish. Red flowers and flames symbolize the energy and light available at this time of creative invention. The special joy of self expression that comes fearlessly to life retains the purity and innocence of childhood, when all things are new. Two of the cupids hold the three wands aloft; the third, in his excitement, has almost let go of his share of responsibility. They are playfully acting out the message to us that without clarity of vision, cooperation, and concentration, this opportunity might come to naught. They caution us to use this fateful moment of joyful awareness and creativity wisely.”

The Awakening: “Adopt a viewpoint that allows you to see directly as a child and look for playmates or soul mates, for collaboration in a happy enterprise. Let this moment of openness be joined with practicality and find others who will add their specific skills for a successful conclusion to a shared venture. Now is the time to reap what you have sown.”

The Enchantment: “Using brightly colored crayons, draw a picture of what you need or wish to manifest. Place the drawing under three orange candles on the night of a new moon. Light the candles. When the candles have burned out, an opportunity should present itself. Remember to see with the eyes of a child, for if you look only for what you expect your opportunity to look like, you might miss it.”

Quick Read

Message: “You need to become more aware of the opportunities that exist for you right now. There may be more than you are aware of. To best see and take advantage of them you must concentrate, cooperate, and remain open minded.”

Outcome: “You will become aware of at least one great opportunity. It may not come in the form you expect. If you are alert, open-minded and willing to cooperate, you will get your wish. The time to meet a great playmate, and maybe even your soul mate, may be here.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Have you been taking life way too seriously? Have you been feeling suffocated by obligation and responsibility, of all the “have-to’s, should’s and must-do’s” with not nearly enough fun and lightheartedness? You are not alone, this has been one hell of a year so far! So much change, so much chaos… so much that we have to do in a day that they all start blending together.

But right now, you are being offered a vibrational reprieve. You are being offered a chance to lift your spirits, a chance to leave the mundane and travel in another realm, another reality. Do you accept this magical offer?

This card is about inspiration. The kind of inspiration that makes a rainy Wednesday the most exciting day of the week… do you remember that feeling? That feeling that even though you may go through the same motions, there is something lighter and more fun… something that lifts you up and makes you soar. Something that makes everything feel like it’s going to be ok after all. An opportunity to leave the rut and experience something that makes your heart beat faster.

Love. Opportunity. Passion. A new idea. A new direction. Something unexpected… anything is possible here and for each of us it will be different. Maybe it will be a business venture, the perfect place to live, a dream vacation or a soul mate… only you will know.

Do the exercise as suggested. It’s a new moon tonight. Draw the pic, place it under a candle, you can even put it outside somewhere safe where it can’t catch anything on fire… or have a bath and relax by the candlelight! Set your intention to come to fruition by the full moon.

And let the magic happen

Namaste

Athena ~ Wisdom

Published October 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

The Myth: “Zeus feared that his first wife, Metis, whose name means wisdom, would bear a son who would overthrow him. Zeus swallowed Metis when she was pregnant with Athena. Despite his effort, Athena sprang fully grown from Zeus’s head, dressed in her war armor and shimmering gold, holding a sharp spear.

Athena is the virgin goddess of wisdom and appears in many myths, planning strategies for wars and guiding heroes toward their goals. Her ability to see things from a higher perspective allows her to choose the best course of action.

Athena and Poseidon competed to become the patron deity of what would become Athens. Poseidon created a spring that brought water and trade, but it was salty and not good for drinking. Athena created the domesticated olive tree, which gave the Athenians food, wood, and oil. Her gift was by far the wiser and more fruitful, and she became the patron of Athens, which was named in her honour. This example illustrates how Athena used her ability to see the bigger picture to achieve her desired outcome.”

The Message: “Athena represents clarity and balance of mind. It may be time for you to stop and take stock of your life. You may need to put feelings to the side and closely review your current situation. You may need to journal, meditate, or go for a long walk in order to obtain clarity.

Athena helps heroes win battles, but only through intelligence, clarity, foresight, and wisdom. This is a time to be smart, and wisdom only comes when the heart and the mind are in balance. If you feel muddled, overwhelmed, or frustrated, it is time to stop engaging in the dramas of your exterior life so that you can see what is really occurring and discover how to move forward and defeat the monsters of your inner life. This is a time to face yourself calmly and honestly , so that the guiding light of clarity can see you through to the next phase in your life.”*

~ By Carisa Mellado

Yesterday we were granted the supreme protection of Isis. Today we are blessed with the wisdom of Athena. Now that we are protected by powerful warrior energies, it is time to dig deep and find our inner resources. It takes much more than brute strength to win a battle, we must use the power of our minds. Both Goddesses can contribute to our clarity of thought, our decisiveness and our ability to tap into our vision and strength of character, where true battles are won.

We are being asked to look at things in a new and different way. We are reminded that each of us is on our own journey and we cannot interfere with the journey of another. We can provide support and guidance, just as the Divine can offer us, but we cannot live their lives for them. Maybe we have been a bit judgmental. Maybe we have been withholding love from someone in an effort to teach them a lesson. Maybe we have been sucked into playing a game we didn’t want to play. Maybe we have convinced ourselves of something that deep down we know is simply not true.

All that must be released. The slate must be cleared so that new ideas can form. There is a new way to see this situation, but we must be open to it.

Athena is the goddess of wisdom and strategy. She is not intimidated. She is not easily influenced. She does not react with emotion, but steps back to gain perspective, considering the bigger picture. She makes a plan of action. We are being urged to do the same. Refuse to get caught up in the drama. See things from a broader perspective. Strive for the highest good instead of personal gain. Take a break from the situation until you can think clearly and move forward in the best possible way.

Namaste
