Cultivation: “Listening to music can heal, encourage, and nurture your soul.”

“Your spirituality is an essential part of who you are, and it forms the framework of your world. Music resonates with the human spirit. At the heart of humanity is the song of the soul. Music has the power to unite communities, cultures, and civilization. Listening to music can heal, hearten and support your soul.

Studies have found that musical tones communicate with and have an energetic impact on the cells and organs of the human body. It is believed that the cells vibrate and essentially have their own musical intonations. Listening to music can help heal and uplift your energy. You may find that by tuning into uplifting or calming music, you create space for greater contemplation and, in turn, gain more clarity about what you are creating in your life. It can also bring about a stronger connection to your higher self or to oneness.

Music cultivates community as sound fosters communication and greater unity. Cultivation is a continual process that develops, encourages, and nurtures. There is a spiritual connection that forms between the music and the listener. Ganesha is inviting you to incorporate music into your life in a way that will augment your spiritual expansion. Listen to soothing music while you prepare for your day. Move away from the noise of excessive electronics and digital images and back to a more melodic existence. Take time to sit and listen to music. Doing this can shift your energy to a clearer and more receptive state.”*

Music has always been a vital part of our many civilizations across the planet. Music is a way that we can bridge the gap between cultures. Music can bring us together emotionally, triggering in us deep emotional release. Music is an integral part of marking a celebration, or honouring those who have passed. Think about the importance of music in movies, as it can get your heart beating fast when the killer is about to strike or tears flowing when lovers reunite.

Music has incredible healing properties that we are only just beginning to understand. The power of sound vibration can be used to kill diseased cells, promote growth in healthy cells and create the perfect balance within the energy centers or chakras of the body, promoting health and well being. 

Music can calm or stimulate the mind, assisting us in meditation, greater memory retention, and better connection between the logical and emotional parts of the brain. It can actually assist us in dealing with trauma and heal lingering emotional pain. It is proven that making music assists in the creation of new neural pathways; opening parts of the brain that would otherwise lay dormant. Yes, that means it quite literally makes you smarter.

But not all music is created equal. If you want to amplify the benefits of healing, bringing together the body, mind and spirit, it is suggested that you listen to Solfeggio or Binaural beat music,  based on the principle of Entrainment, which coaxes the brain to match the vibrational frequency of the music, promoting healing, sleep or altered states of consciousness.

Bring music into your world today. Get intimate with it. Put in some headphones and listen to the Solfeggio frequencies, there are many free on Youtube. Experiment with using this music to assist you in calming the mind, releasing stress, and healing the body. Let it move through every cell of your body. If you are able to experiment with making music, or participating in listening to or participating in a live music session with gongs, crystal bowls, hand pans, drums or any of the other magical instruments of the world… even better.

Namaste

Selene

Published December 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Selene, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

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

Selene: “Intuition”

The Myth: “Selene is the daughter of Hyperion (the god of light) and Theia (the goddess of heavenly light) and the sister of Helios (the sun) and Eos (the dawn). She is the personification of the moon, often depicted with a half moon on her head, riding a silver chariot across the sky. She is sometimes depicted bearing a torch.”

The Message: “This is a time for cutting away all your mind chatter and connecting to the deepest part of yourself. You have an inner voice, a feeling that cannot lie or steer you wrongly. You must be brave enough to hear, acknowledge and follow that voice. Intuition is not rooted in logical or cultural thought; it is rooted in the deepest core of your being.

If you feel confused or do not know what to do or where to go, realize now that the answers you seek have been within you all this time. You may not be ready to hear them all, but you can hear enough to take you to the next place. You may be on a journey where things need to unfold one step at a time, and your intuition will be the only guide you have along this path. Trust it.

It is important to have a time-out right now, as you must reconnect to your self so that you can hear this inner voice of intuition. It is essential that you write, meditate, or do whatever it is that reconnects you to your self at this time. Intuition is the wisdom of the body, heart and mind in unison, and outer influences must be cut away at this moment so that you can synchronize with this inner intelligence. You need to establish a routine that includes personal connection time so that you are always in touch with your self.

All the answers exist within you. Right now, all you need to do is listen.”*

~ Carisa Mellado

Although this card depicts the full moon, it comes to us in the new moon phase. The time of setting intentions, planting seeds that will come to fruition in the full moon phase.

What do you wish to create? How in touch are you feeling to your inner wisdom right now? Is some quiet time in order, a little break from the chaos of the holiday season?

Take some time today to pull your energy back to you, particularly if you are feeling extra stressed or scattered. Take some time to be quiet. To meditate; contemplate. Create.

This is the last new moon of 2017, use it wisely. Use it to create something new. Use it to create a shift, a transformation. A new way of Being in the world.

What you plant today will start to grow.  Your dreams will produce little shoots of light in your life starting January 2nd, the first full moon of 2018.

Today is important. Your canvas. Your blank slate.

What will you create?

Namaste

Connection

Published December 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Connection, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Connection, from the Chakra Insight Oracle, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Connection: “Universal Oneness – love – Interconnection  – Support”

“You are a vital strand in the great web of life. Your thoughts, feelings and actions are essential to the whole. Connect!”

Card Story: “Like the interwoven blades of an infinite field of grass… like the braided roots of an ancient sacred tree… like the spiraled union of our own DNA and the linking waves of an everlasting sea… We are each connected to each other and to the greater web of life. In the big scheme of things we seem tiny and weightless, but our unique place in this universal chain is called for and essential. We are living bridges of connection.”

Card Message: “This card is about connection with others. It is about feeling the oneness and interconnection of all of life. Opening your heart to love and be loved.

Amidst the pressures and rapid pace of life, it is easy to become so focused on getting things done that we disconnect from the greater flow. It is as though there is a clear mountain stream running right beside us, but we choose to drink from a puddle instead. This card is an invitation to re-engage with the world around you and to honour your place in the interconnectedness of life.

Realize your part in the chain of life. Feel the connection with the food you eat, the people you associate with and the work that you engage in. Realize that all the people who cross your path during the day are each playing out their own lives but in doing this they are playing a part in your world also.

This card also encourages you to engage in relationships openly and deeply. Honour your role and play your part in building a strong connection with your partner or those you are most intimate with. There is a difference between being physically present and genuinely connected. It is time to make a conscious effort to open yourself to deeper levels of engagement and connection in your relationships. From this type of connection we are able to make mistakes, show our true selves and express our fears without judgment. From this type of connection we can feel unconditional love. We support each other and have the opportunity to truly expand awareness of ourselves and awareness of another human being. It is through this genuine connection in the ordinary moments that we open ourselves to the extraordinary possibilities.

We all share this planet. We are all connected to one another and are all loved. Ponder on the thought of universal oneness. Feel part of this interconnected consciousness. Honour your link in the chain… connect!”*

~ by Caryn Sangster

This is the holiday season, we are right in the thick of it all. Frantic shoppers. Zero parking spaces. Lineups at the postal office. Office parties and family gatherings and school concerts and field trips. And yet not everyone celebrates, many people find this the most stressful time of year. Many people feel isolated. Many people feel burnt out. Many people feel stretched financially. Many people struggle.

Reach out to them.  Include them. Desire to bring them back into the fold. Give what you can; be it time or money or food or clothing to a shelter or donations to those in need. Reconnect them, assist them through difficult times. Hold space for them to experience something different, a shift.

Try to take the focus off of all the stuff. Give from the heart instead of out of obligation. Hand make something special. Plan a special dinner for the new year. Give precious time instead of wasting money. Support small or local businesses, people working hard to make their living. People using their creative talents to fulfill their passions while they provide for their families.

And know that you are a part of something so much bigger than consumerism. Teach your kids that too. Be like the Who’s down in Whoville who didn’t need all the bells and whistles to make Christmas special. Make it something sacred instead.

Namaste

Spirit ~ Danburite

Published December 7, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Spirit ~ Danburite, from the Crystal Ally Cards deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit ~ Danburite, from the Crystal Ally Cards deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Spirit ~ Danburite: “Danburite is a calcium borosilicate that grows in crystal form. When cut this Ally becomes a clear, brilliant gem. The crystals can appear pink, clear, or golden, depending upon the location in which it is mined. This Ally is the stone of the angels. Its beautiful, high, soft energy encourages us to resonate with celestial beings and their purposes.

Danburite is a stone of joy and celebration. Its frequency creates a resonance which allows our energetic field to become more receptive to angelic and spiritual influences. It is also associated with the higher dimensions of love, fellowship and Light. Danburite’s key word is Spirit, and its frequencies help to connect us more fully with that aspect of ourselves.

Danburite activates the sixth through the etheric chakras, allowing one to see with the vision of the higher realms.

Danburites strong suit is its ability to reveal to us that which has an energy that is normally too high for us to perceive. Faeries, angels and Light beings of all kinds are made visible with the aid of Danburite’s influence. It allows one to ‘pierce the veil’ that separates us from the Divine in one another.

Danburite is an Ally that represents the realm of the Spirit in physical form. The physical realm that we inhabit is merely a shadow of the greater unseen reality that exists alongside us. Often, the unseen forces that guides us are the most powerful allies in our lives.

Danburite’s frequency allows us to perceive the unseen world more fully, and integrate it into our conscious experience through our Light body or aura. The high love energy of Danburite reflects the love of the Universe, initiating within us a resonance and remembrance of the source.”

The Message: “Danburite’s sweet energy is calling you to open your eyes to the magic and wonder around you. Faeries are playing in the grass, Light beings are floating through the forest, and the world is full of unseen guides and teachers that are waiting for you to perceive them. If you reach out with your heart and mind to those on the other side, they will respond by offering guidance, love and fun! Seek the unseen, and develop your faith that it is there, hiding, just beyond the veil.

Danburite is asking you to accept the unseen aspects of yourself as well. Close your eyes and explore the extent of your energy. Try picturing everything in your world as your creation, an extension of your thoughts and intent. Acknowledge that the unseen thoughts you think, the emotions you feel, and the desires you have, all affect the world around you. Call upon the energy of Danburite and the power of your spirit will be made clear to you.”

Chakra: “Third eye, Crown, Etheric”

Affirmation: “I am an infinite part of an infinite Universe.”*

~ By Naisha Ahsian

As you undergo the transformation process, you are opened up in every way. Your connection to spirit is stronger and clearer than ever before. You can receive messages, see the signs and signals. You must commit to listening closely to your intuition, and to seeing the magic around you, particularly in the natural world.

Synchronicity is a powerful force in your life right now. Go with what feels light and right. Go with your heart, listen to your body as you make decisions. Dream time is very powerful now too. Place a Danburite crystal (one of my all time favourite and super high vibe crystals) under your pillow to amplify your connection to the other realms. Wear it, carry it around. It is a powerful ally on your spiritual journey.

Take some time to be silent. Get outside, even if the weather is not optimal. Breathe the fresh air. Open your mind and your heart to experiencing something deeper out there. Connect with the energies of the elemental realm. Appreciate the cycles of the Great Mother and where she is at right now in your corner of the world. See the mystery and beauty that she shares with us every moment of every day. Make and offering… plant a crystal or stone in honour of her awe and beauty.

See yourself reaching through this third dimension of reality into something more spectacular to the senses, reigniting your imagination and creativity. Feel your Crown Chakra opening to the Universe, without the filters of fear and past pain to hold it shut.

Step willingly into the magic of this new dimension of your reality, where anything is possible.

It’s called “the Universal Flow.”

Namaste

Tree Of Life

Published November 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

“The breath of life is all around us. Self-sustaining, the universal tree of life provides a gateway to connect us to the knowledge of self. You are deeply connected to the universe and the world around you. When you respond to the actions and reactions of the earth and its people, you ultimately decide how you will grow and thrive.

The tree of life requires you to look at your breath and to ground yourself in the present moment. Nature does not concern itself with the future. Plants know exactly what they need to do in any given moment. Living in the present will provide you with more time. Your presence is all that is required right now;  you are strong and resilient. Hold your space!

Where are your roots? Plant and keep your feet firmly on the ground now. Any sudden change may cause instability in your personal life. Dig your roots deep in to earth to to create a firm foundation that you can build from. Are you relying too much on the support of others to help you grow? You have the answers within you to determine your direction of growth, but you must be willing to face your inner self and core beliefs. With solid nurturing and time, you will begin to see results.

Family matters are of concern now. Be open to solutions to achieve the outcome you desire. Be careful with decision making. Compromising too much over an issue will leave you feeling powerless. Like a branch on a tree, growth will occur in an area that supports the core structure or it will break and drop in order to maintain the overall strength of the tree itself. You may need to drop a branch or two to solidify your point of view or to reach a resolution. Patience is key.”

Affirmation: “I AM unified through presence and action. My strength is supported with loving roots.”*

~ By Anna Stark

As above so below. We are all intricately connected; tethered together by the energy of the Universal One. Yet sometimes we feel disconnected or isolated, way out on the end of the branch, struggling, feeling alone and unsupported. Sometimes it is time to come back to our roots, our presence, our own unique way of being an integral part of community.

When we feel isolated, we must be of service and bring out our gifts to share with others. Fearlessly, shamelessly and with as much creative expression as we can muster. It’s too easy to play the wall flower, the victim, hanging back and waiting for life to happen in order for us to participate. We wait for others to make decisions for us, to offer our lives to us in a way that we desire. But we must realize that it is us who is creating every step of the way. And time is passing, faster than ever before; playing tricks with us, spinning away when we aren’t looking.

We must stay balanced, grounded. Put our hearts and souls into what is really important to us. Try our best to turn away from all that distracts us from our true calling. Put the roots of our energy into what means most and allow ourselves to grow up into our potential.

What is it that you wish to create? Where are you putting your valuable energy?

How can you ground yourself in your passion, feel your roots hold you steady while you reach for the stars?

Namaste

Seven Of Earth

Published October 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seven Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Seven Of Earth: “Meditation, Grounding, Connection, Cycles, Change, Interaction, Purification, Stress”

Key Phrases: “Get out into nature. Let Gaia heal you. Connection between self and the world. All is connected and has influence. Address the stress. Meditate and still your mind. Put down the tech toys. Time to physically interact and connect.”

Meaning Of The Card: “The Seven Of Earth symbolizes a need to both nurture and maintain a connection between spirit, self, and the world around you. Ground, integrate, and connect.

To feel and embrace this connection does not require any belief in the Divine, but a simple awareness that all is connected on an energetic level. At this time, look out into the world to see, feel, and understand the cycles of life and nature and how they affect and influence you.

Over time, life and day-to-day demands may begin to wear away at us, making us irritable and reactive … less adaptable and flexible … more fearful of the changes going on within us, and around us. All of these things can make us feel alone and disconnected.

The Seven Of Earth symbolizes the importance of connection and being part of the natural world, but also the need to address areas of potential stress in your life before they become a problem.

It is time to meditate and still your mind. Make a habit of taking time to sit and meditate in nature, and allow all the stress to flow out of you and into the earth. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax and become one with Gaia and Great Spirit. Reconnect. You do not have to believe. Just allow yourself to be still, at peace, and free of the impurities and worries that cloud your sense and good judgment.”

Potential Blockage: “It is often easy to become focused on one aspect of our lives to the exclusion of all else. This can result in a real disconnect from the world and life that goes on around us.

We are all part of the world, and yet most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, secluded and closed off to both nature and real physical interaction.

Are you missing out? Has  your world become a very insular place consisting of home and office? Do you now do the majority of your socializing and human interaction via phone or computer? When was the last time you were out in the world connecting with others in a tangible manner – without looking at your latest piece of tech every five minutes?

Seven Of Earth as Challenger signifies a need to step away from technology and reconnect with family and the community at large in a mindful and present manner.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

Today we are beckoned towards a deeper level of connection through ourselves to the natural world. Unplug. Ground. Breathe. Plant yourself in the present moment. Take a much needed break from the information highway, the daily routine. Get outside. That’s an order!

Take stock of your current stress level and what the causes of this stress are. How can you streamline? How can you release some of the stress before it becomes overwhelm? Do you need to ask for assistance? Delegate tasks that are weighing you down? Are you feeling disconnected? Isolated? Overburdened? Alone?

Heal yourself by aligning with the rhythms and cycles of the outside world. Look to Mother Nature; where she is at is where part of you is at too. The phases of the Moon; the position of the Stars in the sky; how much Sun we get in a day… it all contributes to how you are feeling. The weather, the foods available at this particular time to harvest. What you need to wear in order to keep you warm or cool. It all makes a difference. Listen to your body. Nourish it well. Exercise it. Hydrate it. Align it with nature rather than the man made world. Make space in your mind and in your heart for peace, calm and harmony.

Take breaks from people and situations that feel draining or toxic. Schedule some time for yourself every day, even if only for a few minutes of deep breathing or meditation. If possible, get outside for a walk, take a yoga class or express your creativity. Find ways that resonate with you to ground and realign with your life’s purpose.

Namaste

Ehwaz

Published August 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ehwaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ehwaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Ehwaz: “Take speedy action. Open yourself to the power of flow. It benefits us to work with the rhythms of the natural world. Equine-assisted therapy may be of comfort to you. Eat seasonally available foods and notice the particular energies of each season. We are not our past.”

“The wind, it works its way
Through my hair, a crown of ink.
I smell its direction.
I feel its sway.
My legs, they hold
To the warmth of fur,
The bellows of breathing.
Together,
Forward,
now.
I am Ehwaz.”

“Ehwaz (pronounced, “ay-waz), is the rune of the horse, and it tells us of the importance of flow, rhythm and the gaining of momentum over time. Good riders adapt their bodies and minds to the rhythm of each of their horse’s gaits: walk, trot, canter and gallop (or, in the case of Icelandic horses, their special gliding ‘tolt). In doing so, they become one with their steed, bringing grace, ease and a deep connection between human and horse.

Ehwaz suggests we bring this same sensitivity to our everyday lives. That, rather than resisting the flow, we adapt to – even enjoy – the rhythm of life as we move with it. For example, we can align with the changing seasons, withdrawing with the introverted nature of winter, and setting forth new plans in the fertile spring. Even the foods available differ from season to season, and scientists agree that eating seasonally is better for the health of our bodies.

Ehwaz is also a rune of the now, not the past nor the future. It reminds us that by being where we are and enjoying the fullness and completeness of this present moment we create a more mindful and enjoyable future.”

Ehwaz as Challenger: “Stop resisting. What is is. What has happened is done. Accept it and move on – wiser for the experience and with a positive outlook.”

Element: “Water”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Yesterday we were day-dreaming our desires into reality, today we take the action necessary to make it happen in the physical realm. We don’t resist change but go with it. We don’t hold on when we need to move forward because we trust in the Universe and ourselves. In this way we take a hand in creating through action, one small step at a time.

Horses are powerful and intelligent animals. They deserve our respect and we can learn as much from them as they are willing to teach us and we are willing to learn. They possess a beauty and grace that we as humans have always been drawn to. They can be strong and loyal allies if we treat them with reverence. They can be wild and free, fast and playful; and they can be still and silent, aware, watching. Many of my friends talk to their horses as if they were people, and you only need to look that horse in the eye to know they are fully aware if unable to answer out loud! There are medicine horses here too; ones that understand energy, chakras, auras and healing. They are a rare and amazing gift to those who work with them.

Let the energy of the horse drive you forward with all your grace and power. For the highest good of all. Gallop forward boldly towards your dreams.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
