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.”*

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

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.

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

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny

Published April 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid, Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid, Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny:”Discernment, Clear Vision, Details”

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny as Ally, “The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny is all about the details. Look closely and pay attention to the smallest elements of what is being presented to you on your path. It is in these details, not the broad strokes, that you will find the breathtaking beauty and perfection in what you observe.

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny is on your side to point to deeper meaning of what unfolds in your life, and he reminds you that every moment counts. Staying present in this perfect moment, observing the minute things, leads you to manifest your highest good and greatest desires. Grand gestures are for other times. It is the smallest acts that really count now.

The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny as Challenger: “When The Ringmaster Of Scrutiny appears as your Challenger, he warns you to observe your situation with discernment and clarity. It is time to see the flaws in the foundations you and others have built under you. It also seems that you may be getting caught up in the details of your dream when really it is time to leave them to the Divine. Perhaps you are worrying about the past and the future too much, forgetting that the dream is created in the Now time. Often the Ringmaster Of Scrutiny also brings a warning to read the fine print and to watch out for hidden agendas when you are involved with others.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Again we are reminded to dismantle the old and make space for the new. Although it is good to detach from the drama and rise above, looking at the bigger picture, there is a detail here that is very important. You must not ignore it. It holds the key to a pattern, an old habit or belief system that has held you back for far too long. Like the elephant who has been chained up for so long that now a mere string will hold it without question; you have a little detail that holds you to the old ways. What is it?

Yes, that! The first think you thought of… the one that popped in and floated around in your head. With some help from your guides it was brought from your subconscious to your conscious mind. Now you can deal with it. It will be something like unnecessary or unbalanced compromise; leftover resentment; dishonesty or half truth which includes turning a blind eye; not speaking your truth when you know you must, or to whom you must; leftover feelings of unworthiness or putting things off into the future; hanging on to someone or something you know is no longer the right fit; a belief that others have what you will never have or do not deserve; jealousy, envy, competition or comparison.

Whatever it is, you are hiding it behind a well worn mask of denial… of smoke and mirrors. But it cannot be hidden any longer. Bring it out into the light. Acknowledge it. Heal it. Bless it and release it.

That one little thing is the stopper on your abundance, joy, peace, love, happiness, healing and ascension.

What you thought was one insignificant little detail is actually a pivotal point.

Close that door, once and for all.

And watch what opens for you.

Namaste

Apophyllite

Published April 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Apophyllite, from the Eternal Crystals Oracle Card deck, by Jade-Sky

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Apophyllite, from the Eternal Crystals Oracle Card deck, by Jade-Sky

Apophyllite: “Connect, Third Eye and Crown Chakras”

“Apophyllite’s healing energy has come to you to strengthen your natural psychic ability. It also bestows you with greater mental clarity to connect with higher guidance from your spirit guides and angels. Notice the intricate connection between the physical and spiritual worlds. Calm and ground yourself so that you can hear, sense and feel your  spirit guides and angels more clearly. You can also call upon them to help you to raise your vibration so that you can release any negative thought patterns or mental blockages. Once you clear any negativity or self-doubt, you will be able to let the positive energy shine in your life.

Apophyllite is associated with the third eye and crown chakras. It can be very useful in helping you to see the truth of a situation. Once you see the truth, and can then act upon it and find a way to move forwards both spiritually and mentally. If the thought of this feels a little daunting, remember that you can ask for help from your angels at any time. They will be with you during this whole process, you do not have to do this alone. Once the process is complete, you will e filled with a new sense of empowerment and hope.”*

~ By Jade-Sky

Apophyllite radiates Divine white Light, you can quite literally see it when you hold it in your hand and gaze into it. Its frequency is very high, and it can be used for interdimensional travel and communication during meditation, making it much easier to contact angels, guides and benevolent beings of Light. It is also protective and can be used to ‘grid’ your living office or bedroom; creating a purifiying energetic space which will not allow negative energies to collect. It is great for children’s bedrooms, particularly if they are prone to nightmares or bad dreams, keeping a high vibrational frequency which will help the child to feel safe and loved, as well as facilitating angelic protection and communication.

Place Apophyllite  on your body to heal or move ‘stuck’ energies or blockages. If you have pain or stagnancy, lie with the Apophyllite resting on your body where the issue is for twenty to thirty minutes daily until you find relief. Place just at the top of the head to encourage opening of the Crown Chakra, strengthening your connection to the Universe and allowing yourself to receive higher frequency communication, guidance and assistance. Place on the Third Eye Chakra in the center of the forehead to open this chakra and assist you in seeing the truth in a situation.

Truth Be Told

Published March 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Truth Be Told, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Truth Be Told, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Truth Be Told: “Honesty; accepting things at face value; coming out of denial; the willingness to be transparent; clarity of communication”

The Oracle’s Message: “There is the truth, which is the essence of a thing, and then there is a truth, subjective according to the philosophy of the adherent or believer. This is not a time for debate about which truth is truer. This is a time when you are called to proclaim your truth out loud, and be willing to be transparent, honest, and open in our communication with others and with yourself. Nothing less than surrender to what is, peeling off the layers of denial that kept you tied to an illusion, will set you free. Be authentic and gloriously flawed, and Spirit will answer with miracles.”

Relationship Message: “People tell you who they are very quickly if you are willing to listen to what they say and pay attention to how they behave. This card calls you to engage in heartfelt, open conversation. It is time to see the truth about what you share with each other and tell the truth about who you are and what you need. No one can do that for you. Remember that your truth is always based in your personality and experience up to now. A higher truth will be found after you communicate honestly and see how doing so has helped you become more attuned to yourself. Do not hold back. Speak your truth… and listen.”

Prosperity Message: “Are you willing to do whatever it takes to experience the prosperous life you desire? If you want to be an artist, do you make your art a priority?  If you want to be a healer, do you set time aside to learn new things to help you serve? A writer must write, and a singer must sing. Being true to your calling is essential to your moving forward. There is another oracle message here too. It is time to have a look at the real, honest truth about your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about prosperity – about your relationship to money, to compensation, and to meaningful work. Ask yourself, ‘What is true for me?’ and you will find the key to abundance.”

Protection Message: “Where are you being dishonest with yourself or others? If you are unhappy in any area of your life, look for signs of denial. This can also pertain to others being misleading or withholding, or acting from hidden agendas. Now is the time to say no to dishonesty in all forms. Ask for the truth. Even if you do not like what you hear, acknowledging it will be key to a beautiful new future, where you no longer labor under the heavy burdens that deceit and denial impose on you. Set yourself free. Nothing less than truth is required now.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This is a message of mindfulness and authenticity. Where do you put your energy? How do you express yourself? Have you had the courage yet to take off your mask and be who you truly are in the world? It is time to step through the art of illusion and instead present ourselves as we are, pure and true.

At first we may feel very vulnerable stepping into our truth, but that also is an illusion. We have conditioned ourselves to live under false pretenses. We may have started as children, changing and morphing into what we thought the world would “like better” or to be like someone we looked up to. We may have had painful experiences and altered ourselves to avoid repeating them in the future. We have build walls up to protect our hearts and it’s time to take them down and be who we truly are.

When we step into our true authentic selves, the Universe opens up to us in new and different ways. We no longer have to waste time being something that we are not. New people will be guided to us, new doors will open and opportunity will present itself in ways we had not imagined possible. Open up to this by shedding lies and illusions.

Find your core strength within, find your balance. Find your voice. Your gifts are coming to the surface, honour them, share them. Your light is getting brighter and brighter.

Release what no longer serves you on every level, one layer at a time.

Namaste

Is your spiritual life putting pressure on you lately? All this trying to think positively and raising your vibration, yet you still have bad days, and feel fear, and try not to judge and try your best to be accepting and loving? Yup, you are still human. Phew!

Take a few deep breaths and give yourself a break. The fact is, you are working on yourself, and while you may not have reached enlightened perfection and mastered hovering while in lotus posture, you are still doing amazing things! You have raised your vibration. You have opened your heart. You have activated  your  chakras. You are an amazing work in progress. Accept that. Breathe it in. Give yourself a pat on the back. Well done! You, my friend, are waking up and you are exactly where you need to be, right here, right now. How does that feel?

Give yourself a little break from it all today. Your only job is to smile and give out as many hugs as you can. No asking for advice, it’s all inside you. Instead, be someone else’s sounding board, be there for someone else who needs to know that they, also are on the right path. Take a sea salt bath. Play with your crystals. Go for an energy healing session. Do some yoga. Go for a walk. Get outside and breath some fresh air. Feel the sunshine on your face.

Today? Just be You. You are amazing at that. It’s your specialty. And remember: the world would not be the same without the gift of your beautiful presence.

Namaste

Dee
