Meditation: “In meditation, we can find the space between thoughts and mind chatter. When you meditate, you allow your mind to be in a state of peace. This shift in thinking will help stop any limiting and negative thoughts you might have fallen prey to. When fearful thinking gains a foothold in your mind, it can take root and become habitual. Expecting the worst possible outcome can become your normal response. It can be hard to recognize and release fearful thinking.

Take a minute and silence your mind. Breathe in and imagine this breath traveling through your body. Take a second breath and ask your body to relax. You are creating a connection with your higher self, God, Spirit and your intuition. Just one minute a day of meditation can provide a mental reprieve from the thoughts connected with illness, loss or low vibrational thoughts. This can go a long way toward healing.

A sleeping woman is surrounded by wintry imagery. The different scenes indicate a connection with your true essence, your inner resources and time when you felt happier. The snow suggests purity, cleansing and discovering hidden thoughts and fears. The goose may signify a need for reorganizing your priorities and the importance of the many blessings you have in your life. As you hold these images in your mind, begin a meditation to see if any messages come to you. Don’t worry or strain. Commit to meditating for a minute a day and increase it as you start to feel comfortable. Find soothing music that helps you relax. With practice, clarity and relief from stress may come fore easily.”

She is in a perfect cocoon of healing and peace. Safe from the outside world, she has a reprieve; a break from exertion, from drama and from interaction, if even for a brief time. If you are feeling drained or over extended, even if you recognize the blessings all around you; it is time to take a break.

Meditation is medicine for your mind. Disconnect from the chatter, from the distractions of everyday life. With practice, you can learn to relax the body while you free the mind from the loop of repetitive thoughts that hold us all hostage. The worry, the doubt and the fear. The analyzing of the past. The anxiety of the future. The battery of the self by the ego that can feel never ending.

Meditation can be active too. If the word meditation makes you feel uncomfortable, as if you just cannot stop your mind for long enough to find the peace, try a moving meditation first. Yoga, a walk on the beach or a hike through the woods is perfect. Mindfulness is key. Work to clear your mind and let everything go. Focus on your breath. On the sound of the waves or the birds in the trees. Soften your gaze and imagine your energy merging with your surroundings. Bring yourself fully into the moment.

When you feel comfortable with a moving meditation, try experimenting with stillness. Sit for 5 minutes a day in silent contemplation, again focusing on breath, letting your thoughts go. Over time increasing slowly minute by minute. Some days will be better than others. Sometimes you will be distracted, that is ok. Let it go and try again. Have patience with yourself. Use music or guided meditations if that helps. Do it for a month and see how it shifts your perspective.

Then commit to it for life.

Namaste

Cultivation

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Cultivation, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

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.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

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.

Reflection

Published December 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Reflection, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

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

Reflection: “In this first cycle of earthly reality, Starseed has learned the essentials of existence in form:
~The magic of manifesting form.
~Higher self and the inherent wisdom we bring through our karmic record
~The flow of energy in all its boundless expression
~The importance of structure in the creative stream
~Spiritual guidance
~The giving of one’s self to love
~The power of right mind over the senses
~The meaning of true strength”

“At the end of this first cycle (I-IX), it is time to rest and reflect on all that has been learned. It is time to ruminate on the wisdom of Starseed’s passage thus far.

To achieve the silence to contemplate such important lessons, Starseed is guided to go into a sort of hermitage, far from the distraction of people and events, and back to the quiet of nature, where the greatest truths lie.

At a time when humankind is bombarded with all manner of noise and distraction via our personal interactions, technology, and media, the path of the hermit can be the remedy to restoring peace in the mind and the soul.

Associated with Reflection are the words hermitage, silence, contemplation, meditation, stillness, and peace.

When Reflection appears in a reading, the querent might consider the following: Am I able to silence my mind and reflect on the situation at hand? How am I quieting my mind to contemplate the higher truth? Am I able to be still and listen to my inner voice? Do I need to get away, to find the guidance  I need in the situation? Have I matured from what I have learned? How am I behaving like a hermit to those who seek my attention or guidance?”

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

2017 has been quite the year to contemplate. A lot has happened. So very much it feels like too much. It is the beginning of the cycle of the next nine years. It is the beginning of the biggest shift of the ages. The release. The purging. The clearing of the slate. This is the beginning of the shattering of illusions. Bringing of the truth. Leveling of the field.

It has been so extreme at times. It has been heartbreaking. It has been liberating and transforming. It is powerful energy, coming from above and below that has set the wheels into motion.

What do we see in the above image? A delving into the depths, shedding light into the darkest corners. A fearlessness; holding the light to guide the way. Refusing to let the darkness drive us back.

Here in Victoria, BC our city has been rocked by heartache in the most devastating way. On Christmas Day, local mother Sarah Cotton lost her two beautiful daughters at their father’s hand. I personally do not know her but many of my friends do, regardless she is part of our community here and she has suffered a loss no mother should ever suffer. There is so much to the story that would lead us to believe that she simply wasn’t listened to. (more about the story here). That her intuition and cries for assistance went unheeded. That her protective instincts were not honoured. And now she’s lost what is most dear to her heart. And my heart hurts for hers. Tonight at 7pm PST there will be a candlelight vigil for the girls. Please send your love and prayers to their mother.

What we need now more than ever is Light. We need to come together and help each other. Listen to each other. See each other. Really be here in the moment, being the most authentic versions of ourselves that we can be. Living from the heart center. Banding together as best we can. Refusing to let the darkness suffocate us. Embracing those who need us most.

Prayers of love and light to every single one of us and prayers to Sarah may she somehow find peace without her daughters in her care, but with her angels always by her side.

Namaste

Contemplation

Contemplation, from the Magical Dimensions Oracle Cards and Activators, by Lightstarartwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Contemplation, from the Magical Dimensions Oracle Cards and Activators, by Lightstar

Contemplation: “Silence, Knowing, Releasing Control.”

~ (Image connected with Sedona Color Ray)

Celestial Interpretation: “Contemplation resonates to the quiet power that lies deeply within the soul. This beautiful ray of loving peace removes challenges and helps the soul turn to the Higher Self for answers. It gently allows the peaceful tranquility of Spirit to divinely step forward. It is in this very place that all true knowing exists. No need to do; rather just to be. In living from the All That Is as the primary place of rest and comfort, the soul finds its most restorative teacher.”

The Oracle Interpretation: “It is time to go deeply within. Only you have the answers you seek. You are being asked to quiet the mind chatter and do some form of meditation for peace. Take the path of least resistance. It may be time to take a much needed vacation or relaxing getaway. Quiet and stillness will be best for you now.”

We made it through Christmas and now there is work to be done. The countdown is on to the end of 2017 and the start of the new year. The next few days should be used wisely; to set our intentions for what we wish to create in 2018.

Today is about clarity. Contemplate what you wish to manifest into your reality. How the next chapter of your life is going to look, feel like, sound like, even smell like! Use your thoughts, feelings and all of your senses and your vivid imagination to create. These are your most powerful tools, use them wisely. There is no time here for limitations, worries, doubts and fears. Take charge and focus only on what you desire.

This is not about control, about the how something will play out, but the what you want and why. What do you wish to create? How would that feel? The rest is up to the Universe. Trust, have faith that if you are clear and your energy is focused and not scattered, you will be successful. You can create anything you put your heart and soul into.

Take some time to yourself today. Some time to be quiet, calm, peaceful and relaxed. Do a walking meditation outside; or sit in your favourite spot and meditate. Play some soothing music (I personally love Solfeggio, which will assist you in your manifestation, check youtube for lots of free options). Create something if you have a passion, painting, drawing, writing, playing music, dancing or singing. Move the energy. Create.

Journal. Write down how you want to feel and why. Write down what you wish to pursue; what you desire to create.

Dream it into form and breathe it into life.

For the Highest Good Of All and So it Is.

Namaste

The transformation you are going through may create some friction in your life. You may find that you are no longer in alignment with certain relationships, occupations or lifestyle choices. Things that once appealed to you no longer hold your attention, and truths that you may have chosen to ignore are now too glaringly obvious.

This can cause fear and discomfort. It can cause people who are close to you to object. It may cause judgment and it may even cause rejection. Try not to take it to heart, it is all part of the process.

It is time to reflect back on whether there were times in the recent past that you saw evidence that you had outgrown a particular situation and yet felt unable to deal with it. Maybe you were afraid to hurt someone; or you were afraid your financial situation wasn’t strong enough for changes to be made. Maybe you felt obligated to someone or something. Or maybe you just chose to ignore it out of fear of the new, the unknown.

But now you do know it, and this knowing comes from deep within. There is no hiding from this knowledge. There is only opportunity for change.

Use the reflection to see the truth. Use it to make positive changes; necessary changes.

Use it to change your external world to match your internal world.

Namaste

Page Of Cups

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page Of Cups, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law artwork by Barbara Moore

Page Of Cups: “She delves down through the waves, seeking to be alone and to find a peaceful place to contemplate her own thoughts.

She brings a cup with her. It brims with the captured essence of sunlight from the world so high above her own. It contains the tiny sparks and flashes that have drifted down to the sea bed in bits of golden coin or in the stray shaft of sunlight that manages to pierce through the fathoms. All of that is distilled into the precious contents held in her hands.

She lifts the cup underneath her face, feels that remembered warmth of the sun’s kiss upon the wave tops. The heat spirals out through the water with tendrils of peace and tranquility. The radiance sparks her thoughts and her imagination. She feels her mind begin to set adrift, and her visions fills with dreams of the fantastic.

The Page Of Cups is sentimental. She is a true romantic at heart, and in a world that is filled with so much noise and bustle, she longs for the time and space to simply breathe and to truly take in the pleasures that abound. She listens to the still voice from deep inside that speaks with understanding and intuitions, and she longs to believe in the impossible.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

This is a card of contemplation but it is also a strong message of your advancement in manifestation ability. You have reached a new level of creation energy, can you feel it? It is up to you what you create and you must be aware that if your thoughts are weighted down by worries, doubts and fears, you will likely manifest more of the same. If you are using your energies to focus upon what it is that you desire to create, then this too is readily available to you now.

What  is it that you wish to create?

What are you turning your lead into right now… more lead or pure gold? Up to you. Always was, always will be…

The cup in the image above is golden, a sign of prosperity, of confidence and of self worth. All this is available to each and every one of us. If we choose to raise our vibration to match it. Do you see her serenely focusing her intent on the content of the cup? There is no struggle here; there is also no distraction. Only focused intention. Concentrated energy. There is a certain knowing here too, faith and trust in the process, and inner peace and harmony. Gaze again at the image, take that in as your own vibration. Feel the shift happen. The spiral is a representation of birth/rebirth, growth and expansion. The spirals above can signify the ever expanding nature of your conscious awareness and what is truly possible. The sun symbolizes the creation, life force, energy and light.

Anything is possible, if you decide to create it.

Namaste

Charity

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

Charity: “Prayer and Contemplation”

“Connect with heaven. Ask and you shall receive.”

About Charity: “Faith, Hope, and Charity are a trinity of Archangels who are dedicated to helping us regain our natural traits of kindness, trust and faith in the highest good. Charity is the twin flame of Archangel Chamuel. She has a great spirit that encourages us to undertake the spiritual practices of prayer and meditation. Prayer is the way we speak with the divine and meditation is the way we open ourselves to receive the answers we need to hear. Charity is also the angel who kisses the forehead of all those who pray in support of others.”

Extended Message From Charity: “The powerful Archangel Charity is drawing close to you at this time because she has recognized that you have goodness in your heart and you have put others first. She brings you thanks and support. Move into prayer and meditation with regard to any decisions you have to make at this time. You are being guided to take the time to breathe and to receive. Know that you will have a real surge of intuition when it is time to move forwards. Thank the angels for guiding you towards your highest good, and welcome Charity into the space with you.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Such a beautiful, gentle, loving energy is coming through from Charity, can you stop for a moment, focus on her image in the card and connect to her presence? When your heart feels heavy, she is beside you. When you feel that you are doing your very best, for the Highest Good, and things are not moving forward yet, or not going the way you intended or wished for, she is with you. When you need a helping hand to lift you back to your feet again, embrace you in a warm hug and tell  you that everything is going to be Ok, she is there for you. Just ask.

Create some time in your schedule to be alone, undisturbed. If possible, bring some dark pink roses into your living space in honour of Charity. Light a white or fuchsia candle. Use the card image or another image of Charity that resonates with you. You may want to burn some rose incense or use rose or tuber rose essential oil. Place a ruby or pink tourmaline in the sacred space if you have one. Place these items together, creating an altar where you can sit in front of them. Start by taking a few deep breaths. Set your intention for connecting to Charity now. You can write it down and read it out loud, or speak it. Ask a question or ask for guidance in making a decision. Sit quietly, eyes closed and listen, staying open and receptive. Imagine Charity standing before you, radiantly surrounded with pink and white light. See her show you the answer to your prayer, see her offer her guidance. This may come in colours, sounds, pictures, words or feelings. Be receptive to the healing or guidance you get, accepting it graciously. If you do not receive immediate guidance, ask that you receive very clear signs, symbols and messages in the next twenty four hours, or during your dream time. Thank Charity for her assistance, and know that you can come back any time for extra help. Take a few more deep breaths and come back to the room. Open your eyes and gaze for a few minutes at her image, the candle or the flowers. Bring your palms together in front of your heart and know that there will be a significant moment of change and resolution is coming to you now.

Namaste
