Athena ~ Wisdom

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

~ by Rachelle Charman

A gift of courage for the Spiritual Warrior (yup, that’s you!) Strength, fearlessness, calm in the face of the storm. You got this!

Change is inevitable. Transformation is imminent. We are called to dive into our inner wisdom and access our greatest resources. We are called to take a leap of faith, daunting as it may seem, diving straight into a brand new aspect of ourselves. Start fresh. Something brand new and exciting, even if it terrifies you.

We are being granted a wish here. The wish we have been wishing for so very long. We have the chance to make it happen. To take a chance. To take action steps to manifest it into our reality. The dreaming is over, the doing is here now. The window is open, act before it shuts.

If you have a Tiger’s Eye, keep it close now. (If you don’t they are super easy to come by and generally very affordable at any metaphysical or rock shop). It will assist you to have the strength to get through this time, which may start out challenging but will level out. One chapter ending, a new one beginning.

And so it is

Namaste

Intention

Intention, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Arc Of Chaos” Copywrite 2017 Alexandra Birchmore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Intention, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Arc Of Chaos” Copywrite 2017 Alexandra Birchmore

Intention: “Be clear and decisive. Focus on what you really want. Be bold with your requests to the Universe.”

“When you focus on what you want with laser-sharp clarity, you have the power to part seas and move mountains. What may now seem out of reach can come to you, if you believe in it with all of your heart, command it with clear intention, let the Universe find the best way to bring it to you, and then take courageous action as guided.

You may sense that your desires are being delayed or not arriving at all, because you are sending out a muddled or timid request. Perhaps you are not sending out any desires at all? You will create a default reality based on your old patterns and beliefs unless you use intention to manifest what you want. Avoid being trapped in the same dramas, the same experiences and the same disappointments by setting strong, new intentions now.

This glorious, winged horse urges you to remember that you are the powerful creator of your own reality, whether you are doing so consciously or unconsciously. He urges you to use focused intention to command in your blessings and deliberately create a life that lights you up.

You are an infinite being, tapped into unlimited possibilities and you can choose and create your reality now. So, choose a life that astounds you with its magnificence. Stand in your power as a co-creator with the Divine and stay strong in your clear intention to live your highest life.”*

~ By Cordelia Francesca Brabbs

Look at the size of those wings! What if I told you that you, also, have wings of that very same size and magnificence? In fact, maybe upon inspection yours are actually substantially bigger!

Would you believe me? Do you believe me?

It’s true.

Imagine what is possible with wings like that… how high you could soar above the mundane world, how free you could feel. How majestic and beautiful; awe inspiring. You will be…

What do you wish to create? More than anything else in the whole, wide world? It is yours for the taking… yours for the manifesting… yours for the intending, the focus and the embracing. Do you believe that is true?

What do you wish to create? More of the same or something brand new? How do you manage your thoughts and emotions around your dreams and desires,? Is there something that holds you back from taking the steps to create them? Is there someone out there who is living your dreams for you? Do you believe that there may not be enough dream to go around?

Or do you see yourself with vast wings, ready to fly high up into the cosmos to meet with your Divine destiny?

Namaste

Ongkanon ~ Communication

Published August 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ongkanon ~ Communication, from the Angel Blessings Oracle, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ongkanon ~ Communication, from the Angel Blessings Oracle, by Kimberly Marooney

Ongkanon ~ Communication:

“And the angel said to the, ‘Be not afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people…’ Luke 2:10

“Ongkanon, (Ong-ka-non) is God’s messenger who offers love and guidance as you progress on your pathway Home. He often acts as an intermediary, bringing remembrance of your spiritual destiny, and his desire is to assist in your quest for truth. Call on Ongkanon often to part the veil of illusion and connect you with your Eternal Self.

The angels communicate at the soul level, without words. Their deep feelings are transmitted telepathically allowing no room for misunderstanding. Humans have developed a verbal method of interchange that is custom made for deceit, misinterpretation, and conjecture. To further complicate matters, most of us have been taught that it is not safe to say how we really feel. What areĀ  you afraid to expose and why? Strive to reach a level of loving but brutal honesty in relationships. Going deeply into your feelings to reveal the truth invites an incredible outpouring of love and understanding.

Ongkanon can be a remarkable communication assistant if you just ask. Then stay alert for insights into your own feelings and the lessons of relationships with others. When you have feelings for others – love, anger, resentment or uneasiness – ask to understand the higher meaning for being with this person. If the relationship is troubled or karmic, seek healing and forgiveness. It is not necessary to like everyone; uncomfortable feelings could be a valuable warning that this person is not for you. If the relationship is joyous, revel in the ecstasy.

Ask Ongkanon to enhance communication with family members through love and peace. Seek ways to understand your differences, while striving to appreciate your sameness. We all just want to be loved. Write letters to the Guardian Angel of anyone who troubles you and ask for the good of all concerned.

What you are afraid to say reveals where you need to work. Are you reluctant or unable to tell others how you feel when things come up? Do you even know how you feel? Are you fearful of their response? Do you freeze up so you can’t speak? Do you explode in rage? Can you trust others to honour your feelings? Do you try to please at any personal cost? Perhaps you could say anything and they would hear with an open heart and respond in love! Relationships that are expansive, ever striving for more heartfelt true communication, are precious gifts of love. The fear, anger, lack of trust and hurt that relationships trigger mirror inner feelings. Your willingness to explore your dark side, to deeply feel what you fear the most and release in love, will open the way to better relationships with others.

Seek truth in all of your communications, from things as simple as a birthday card to the complexity of a marriage. Know what is true for you, try to feel what is true for others and find the way to understand each other.*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

There is a special emphasis right now on communication. Clear and heartfelt communication: with yourself and your loved ones, with your co-workers and friends and also with your angels, guides and galactic counterparts. Fearless connection held in the Highest Order of Being; for the Highest Good Of All. The most authentic voices of our hearts and Souls being shared with the world in peace, harmony, truth and Love.

We must learn to speak only truth; to leave all the lies, white and otherwise behind. We must commit to releasing all judgment and replacing it with unconditional Love. As we ascend, we will find that our voices are no longer the only way we communicate. As we become more and more crystalline, we will also become more telepathic; it is happening already. There really is no way to be deceptive when you are communicating telepathically as both thoughts and feelings/emotions are being read and assimilated simultaneously. Truth is the only option. As each of us commits to truth, we encourage others to do the same. One hundred honest monkeys is all we need to start!

There is another aspect here and that is being truly honest with ourselves about what it is that we wish to create. Only then can we work with the Universe to make it happen. Be clear with our intentions, be clear with our prayers. And be kind to ourselves.

There are many benevolent beings who also wish to communicate with us, angels and Archangels and guides, passed over loved ones, ancestors and ancients, the elemental realm and our cosmic guides. We are finally turning a corner and being open to the idea that we are not the center of the Universe (thank goodness for that!) We are opening up to the idea that maybe, just maybe (of course~~) there is life out there. Like how could there not be? Of course we are all entitled to our opinions, but with zillions of galazies and a seemingly infinite cosmos, it would seem very possible! Many of these beings reside in different, higher frequency dimensions than our third dimensional reality, and many of them are patiently waiting to help us to ascend to a more peaceful and loving existence.

Consider being open to that. Consider being open to communicating with these benevolent beings.

The (star)seed is planted.

Sunstone

Published June 25, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sunstone, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sunstone, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Sunstone: “Trust. Even if a situation seems opaque and unknowable, trust that you will find a way through. Look past the illusion – discover the facts. Seek clarity. Find a different perspective.”

“White and opaque,
Always sun and no sun.
The stars, they hide
Directionless upon the horizon.
And yet,
There is a way, another way.
By looking through crystal,
Sharply, the stone reveals
Our most desired treasure.”

“The Vikings’ extraordinary navigational skills led to remarkable raiding and trade successes. Their cultural ambition to greatly extend their territories was supported not only by the solidly built boats they constructed but by their ability to travel the seas with safety and accuracy.

The Icelandic Sagas of the 1st century AD tell of the Vikings sailing from Bergen, on the coast of Norway, to Iceland, continuing to across to Greenland, and then to a land that is almost certainly Newfoundland. Yet, the Vikings ha no compasses (as this incredible navigational fear was realized well before the magnetic compass reached Scandinavia from China), and they were, for the most part, out of sight of land, and thus had little access to navigational land points. Not only that, but the Arctic regions they traversed are notorious for bad weather, including storms and even complete white outs, which meant that neither the sun nor the stars could be relied on for guidance.

According to Viking records, the secret of this and other navigational feats was the ‘solarsteinn’ or ‘sunstone’, which was said to reveal the true position of a hidden sun, as occurred in the low contrast days of the almost twenty-four-hour summer days of the extreme north. In the Hrafns Saga it says, The weather was thick and stormy… The king looked about and saw no blue sky… then the king took the sunstone and held it up, and then he saw where (the sun) beamed from the stone.

Modern scientists believe they have solved the mystery. The common Iceland spar, a calcite, changes colour and brightness as it is rotated. Initially, scientists thought the Vikings used such crystals to observe polarization patterns and in that way pinpointed the direction of the sun. However, research finally proved that by actively depolarizing the light – at what is called the ‘isotropy point’, where the crystal eliminates all polarization of the light passing through it – it is possible to glimpse a faint, elongated yellow shape (a phenomenon known as Haldingers’s Brush). This phenomenon gives a one to five degree indication of the sun’s location – even when there is absolutely no visible sun to measure direction. Genius!

The sunstone encourages us to trust that there is indeed a way forward, even if we do not see it initially. By trying different approaches, looking at a situation from different perspectives and using our imagination, we may get where we wish to go.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Oh this card is the perfect metaphor and the perfect card to follow yesterday’s message. Out of the darkness and into the light. We are asked to shift perspective and look at what is possible here. What are we not seeing? Are we looking through the same lens we always look through, and are we getting all caught up in our old belief systems? Where is the light? How do we find it? How do we access it?

This message is about seeing things differently, switching out the lenses you use to look at problems or issues with ‘new eyes’. There is magic needed here, trust and faith and alchemy too. If you have been struggling, look closely… are you struggling over your struggling? Where is the space for things to change? Are you doing things the same way but expecting different results? Is that not the recipe for insanity?

Take a BIG, DEEP BREATH. Ok, take a few more. Center yourself. Place your feet on the Earth and ground your energies. Take a moment to look around you, really look around you. Be here, in your body, right now.

What needs to shift and change in order for you to move forward? You know exactly what it is, yes, that… what you just thought about, that big scary thing that you are trying to avoid dealing with. That. How can you shed some new light there? How can you see it through a new lens? How can you expand your thinking and beliefs around it and change everything?

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, can you see it? If not, can you feel it?

Look for the hidden sun.

Namaste

Cockatoo ~ Illumination

Cockatoo ~ Illumination, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Cockatoo ~ Illumination, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower

Cockatoo ~ Illumination: “Some say that in the beginning there was perpetual darkness – a gentle Void, a blanket of nothingness that tenderly swathed the universal plains.

Within this fertile emptiness the Great Mother stirred, as if waking from an eternal slumber. As though trying to recall some distant memory she began to unfold, twisting and churning, dreaming her self into fruition. She began to reach out into the darkness as a massive expanse of nurturing energy that seduced everything it encountered, willingly drawing all into her protective Womb.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo’s dark sister, the Black Cockatoo carries the Genetic Memory of this sacred time and, within her Dreaming, helps us to take control of our life by insisting that we grow at our own pace and learn what we need to know in our own time.

She encourages us to just sit in contemplation and wait for the mysteries of our life to unfold without consciously seeking answers. At the appropriate time, when our mind is still and our heart is at ease, Black Cockatoo passes the torch of illumination to her sister, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.

To have Sulphur-crested Cockatoo appear in your cards today is an indication that you are being primed for clarity to dawn in relation to one or more aspects of your life, and for stability to once again reign supreme.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo offers a time of illumination when truths will be revealed, when energy will flow more easily and obstacles will begin to dissipate.

As a guardian of the East Gate and an emissary of the sun, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo promises a time of mental clarity, clear vision, enhanced intuition and stability.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

A new moon today and we are invited to find illumination within the dark recesses. We are invited to plant the seeds that will grow to fruition with the next full moon on the ninth of July. Think of the new moon as the fertile emptiness of the womb of the Great Mother. Think of the unfolding, the dreaming into reality. What is it that you wish to create?

The key here is create, and creation takes time and patience. It is a step by step approach, no matter what you are creating. We are not making something out of nothing, we are transforming and transmuting energies. We are pulling from the unmanifest realms and molding form into reality. This takes skill and it takes commitment. It takes wisdom and understanding, and it takes faith.

You will discover something hidden deep within, a revelation of sorts. Your priorities will shift. Your perspective will change. Something that seemed so vitally important will suddenly seem trivial as what is truly close to your hearts desire is revealed. There is an aspect of mystery here, of magic and alchemy.

Think of the lotus flower. The seed is planted deep down in the muddy waters. The plant slowly begins to grow towards the light. As it bursts forth from the darkness it takes in pure light and air. A beautiful flower is born.

Plant the correct seeds, those that start in your heart of hearts. Nurture it, protect it. Allow it to bloom. Watch how you shift and change as illumination comes.

From darkness to light.

Namaste

Mercury

Published May 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Mercury, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mercury, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Mercury: “Open Communication”

“Get a weight off your chest. Speak up with love and be heard.”

About Mercury: “Mercury is the Roman god of messages and communication. In Greek mythology he is known as Hermes. He has often been depicted with wings on his feet, representing his capacity to be swift, and carrying a caduceus, the same healing wand that Archangel Raphael is known to carry. As well as overseeing communication, he oversees the planet Mercury. When this goes retrograde, which means it appears to go backwards when seen from the Earth, communication can be delayed or difficult. We can call on Mercury for help with loving, honest and open conversations, divination and any form of expressive art such as writing, poetry and journalism. He can also help us heal miscommunications that have caused distress.”

Extended Message From The Mercury Card: “Open all levels of communication now. Important messages, information and insights are being shared. You may hear from an old friend or family member, or have an opportunity to finally understand a loved one you have not had an easy time with. You may be able to clarify situations where you feel you were not heard properly or were misunderstood. Get things off your chest in a loving way, so that you can clear all the roads to love in your life. Listen too – communication is a two way street. Mercury is here now to allow you to hear clearly and to be heard.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Ah, Mercury the planet has gone direct today, can you feel it? Communication will be made much easier, and Mercury himself can be asked for assistance in speaking your truth, clearly, directly and for the Highest Good of All. When Mercury the planet is retrograde, best made plans get messed up, we are asked to be introspective and do the deep inner work. We are not at our very best as far as presentations, big decisions, reliance on technology and getting ourselves out there at our best. When Mercury goes direct, it is like the clouds part and reveal the brightly shining sun; a weight seems to be lifted from our shoulders and we can breathe easier. Things that may have seemed challenging suddenly go smoothly and effortlessly and we find solutions to problems that may have seemed impossible before.

If you have something to say to someone, now is the time to say it! Do not hold back. Now is the time to make plans, to speak your truth, to follow your heart. Do not compromise on your dreams, honour them. Know that this is an auspicious time to move forward fearlessly. Get really clear on what it is that you want to create and take action steps to make it happen.

Namaste

Dee
