Come To The Edge ~ Essential Meaning: “Courage; taking a leap of faith; overcoming fear and accepting risk”

The Oracle’s Message: “Facing the unknown is the only choice you really have right now if you want to progress. It is Ok to be afraid. Now is the time to take a risk that is not calculated – to feel the exhilaration as you ready yourself for a leap of faith. Spirit is present, so let go of fear. You are called to express your true self. Listen to your heart and soul, not your head. Come to the edge and discover that you can fly. You must step into the unfamiliar so that you may find your miracles.”

Relationship Message: “It is scary to be truly intimate with someone, to allow him or her to see all of you, especially the parts that you have kept hidden and protected. Now is the time to take that risk and let yourself be seen – truly seen. It is important that you speak up, voice what you need, state who you are, say what you hope for. This is not the time to play it safe but to take a leap of faith. You will be glad you did. If you are seeking a relationship, the same applies. Take one step toward the gods and they will deliver what you truly desire.”

Prosperity Message: “If ever there was a time for you to take a leap of faith into the unknown, it is now. This is the perfect moment to take a big risk. The unknown is the only choice now, and if you come to the edge, you will discover treasure beyond your wildest dreams. Allow your courage to lead you in spite of your fears. You don’t need to know the exact for form what you are going for. The essence is much more powerful, and Spirit has a way of delivering an even better version of prosperity than you could imagine. Take that step. The results will be amazing.

Protection Message: “Fear is leading the way into places you do not need to go. Most of what you fear at the moment is an illusion stemming from an old belief that isn’t even true. Now is a time for courage. You will not be lost at sea; you will not watch everyone else get what you want while you are left alone and unloved – oh the drama of it all! F.E. A. R: False Evidence Appearing Real is hovering over you. The more you dwell on fear, the more real it will become. Ask yourself, Who in me is afraid? Love that part of you. Ask, is this true and real right now?The answer, most likely, is no. Give yourself a hug. It’s OK to be scared. Courage must be summoned. In spite of your fear, even when you are not feeling confident, Spirit will always catch you.”*

~by Colette Baron-Reid

How many opportunities may have passed us by when fear has held us hostage? How many times have we gotten so excited and inspired about something only to either talk ourselves back out of it… or have someone else plant fears and doubts for us. They may feel as if they are protecting us from failure or disappointment, but yet they are also putting a damper on life experience and possibility!

And here we have true transformation presenting itself. And yet we feel that little niggle of fear and doubt, presenting itself in the all too familiar form of the terrible and insidious “What if’s”… what if I fail? What if, what happened last time, happens again? What if no one likes me, or my work? What if there is someone who is better than I am? What if I make a mistake? What if I regret it?

Time to take all your what if’s, and blow them all into the biggest hot air balloon you have ever seen. See them power the balloon, the more fear you add, the bigger it get. Straining against the ropes that hold it to the ground. Keep filling the balloon with as many doubts, fears, blocks, what if’s and any other setbacks you can think of until it is literally bursting at the seams. When you are sure you have put every single last one in there, plus a few extra stragglers who were clinging on to you for dear life…. cut the cords and set that balloon free. Watch it sail through the sky, up through the clouds and right up into the Sun. To be purified. To be set free. Take a few moments to center yourself and breathe. Feel your feet on the ground. Feel the alignment of your spine. Feel your energy centers pulsing with bright colourful lights. Feel your new lightness of Being.

One more deep breath and take that leap of faith. Knowing with conviction that failure was never an option. That life is to be lived to the fullest. That you are here for a very important reason. And you are about to live that in full glory.

With grace and ease.

Jump, Dear One.

We are here to catch you.

We are cheering you on.

Namaste

Orpiment

Published March 23, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Orpiment, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman published by Sterling Ethos

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orpiment, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman published by Sterling Ethos

Orpiment

Crystal Colour: “Deep orange surrounded by gold and yellow shards”
Related Chakra: “Sacral Chakra”

Crystal Medicine: “The medicine of Orpiment encourages you to strive and succeed in everything you put your intention and energy into. It works intimately with the element of fire as it burns through any doubts and brings a deeper sense of focus, strength, and embodiment of self. In this space you can find the recipe for success and the support of the Universe to manifest your dreams and passions.”

Crystal Meaning: “Manifestation crystal. Allows you to connect to new projects and ideas. Connects to the warrior energy within, creating strength and courage in your life. Aligns to success in your life. Assists in holding and staying focused on clear positive intentions. Supports strength and commitment to the self.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this card today because success is shining upon you and your current situation right now. The devas are working with you closely to bring what is required for success at this time. Waste no energy on how and when this success will come to pass – just trust and know you will be blessed with a wonderful outcome. At times you have to let go of the finer details of your dreams. It is time to allow the flowers of success to blossom as you receive this well earned blessing in your life. Whatever you have asked guidance on today, know that success is in the air and there is no need to worry any longer because things will turn out better than you could imagine. If you are already feeling the blessings of success, be sure to enjoy each moment, knowing that you have earned this gift and deserve to experience this in all areas of your life.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

This is a message of manifestation, abundance and prosperity; good luck and fortune. But it is coming directly from YOUR creativity and previous work. YOU have created this, and can be proud of your efforts. YOU made the commitment and stuck it out, putting heart and soul into it. And yes, probably some blood, sweat and tears too!

It is time to reap the rewards of your vision, intention, focus, action and conviction. You made this happen. Way to go YOU! Celebrate your victory. Claim your hard earned success; it is imminent if not happening right this very moment.

Connect to your creative aspect by working with the colours orange and gold and the spectrum between. All the coppers and bronzes and shades of the sunset are yours now. Wear them, paint with them, create with them or buy yourself some spectacular tulips and enjoy a burst of colour at home. Wear your orange stones too, or place them in your pocket or under your pillow. Carnelian, Amber, Citrine, Strawberry Quartz are all fantastic examples. It is fairly unlikely you have Orpiment at home, unless you are a collector of fine mineral specimens, but remember, you can connect to the energies by gazing at the card and intending to do so!

Take the opportunities that come your way this weekend, they are stepping stones to something much bigger. Get out and celebrate with friends. Treat yourself to something fun. You deserve it.

Namaste

Capacity To Love

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Capacity To Love, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Heartfield, Artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Capacity To Love: “It takes courage to open up and heal areas of deep vulnerability”

“Each human individual is created with a profound longing to feel loved. Out of this need for love, you may exaggerate and parade your fascinating qualities, while masking your weaknesses or fears. If you are not committed to looking at your root issues, you will feel disconnected from your true self.

Take a moment to look at how you are handling yourself. Are you being open and honest? Are you withdrawing from a situation? Are you masking a problem with some sort of avoidance tactic such as shopping, drinking, or eating excessively? Are you holding grudges?

When your heart is open, you will find that your actions tend to match your words. You rarely get offended. You are emotionally available. When your heart is open, you truly take responsibility for who you are and what your beliefs are. You love yourself more completely. Conflict resolves more easily and you have a desire to live in harmony with others.

Ganesha’s trunk represents the ability to consider how you are perceiving this situation which is significant in your spiritual growth. An elephant’s trunk is an important appendage that is used in its day to day functioning – it serves to remove trees and other large obstacles as well as for more fiddly tasks such as breaking open fruits to eat. An elephant has the capability to handle a range of tasks from minute ones to those requiring great strength. In this way, Ganesha’s trunk is an emblem of his great intelligence and his extraordinary capacity for love. Rely on your own vast array of abilities to tackle your problems and know that Ganesha is supporting you in this process.”*

~by Angela Heartfield

You deserve love. Divine love, family love, romantic love, love from your animal friends, love from your friends. You deserve to be surrounded by unconditional Love and support and true acceptance. How does that make you feel?

Do you shut down when you think of receiving love? Or do you open your heart, mind and arms wide to receive it? Do you feel completely worthy of Love? Are you able to give love and allow yourself to receive love in equal balance, or do you feel that you must give much more than you receive in order to be worthy? Do you see those you love or those who love you as above or below you? Or do you see yourself equal to all others?

These are all questions to ponder in order to see patterns in your life and your relationships. This is where the healing begins. It is so important to see ourselves as worthy and equal to others in loving relationships, and maintain a harmonious give and take of love and affection. We deserve it. They deserve it.

We are all One in Love.

Namaste

Courage

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

Courage: “The warmth of all your open heart can give comfort to all who cross your path.”

“The root word for courage is coeur, which is the French word for heart. Courage comes from the heart. It is an inner strength, guided by love, which seeks truth and justice.

When you have the courage to be true to yourself, you start to feel empowered to act and live in ways true to your own soul, without any illusion. Ganesha is urging you to let down your guard and stop wearing a mask. Begin to have more respect for yourself as well as others. When you come from the heart, you will find that you relate better to others. Your innate gifts will be able to shine through. You are capable of leadership, achievement and inspiring others to succeed, through your own success.

When you draw this card, it is a sing that your ability to cooperate and thrive in peer ventures with like minded individuals is heightened. Be willing to do what is needed for things to run smoothly for you. Ganesha promises great success if you are willing to let down your walls. He is picture here on the powerful lion, inherited from his mother Parvati. The lion represents the fierce nature of Ganesha. He calls on you now to trust the fearless part of your being, your own inner lion, and invites you to work with him to learn how to be valiant and harness your heart’s great courage.”

~ By Angela Hartfield

It takes courage to take the opportunities we are offered; even when they are what we desire, they may be out of our comfort zone. They may feel scarier than living without the dream we have been so focused on creating. We may feel we are not yet qualified. We may feel we don’t know enough. We may feel that we don’t deserve it. Or maybe we have been treated badly in the past, have not done the necessary healing and worry we will suffer again. So we let opportunity pass us by.

Or, we have to give someone or something up, and even though we know it is absolutely vital, we hold on tight. We stick with what we know, and we let our heart’s down again. We put our masks firmly in place and pretend we are better off anyway. Who needs all that change.

Lord Ganesha is the breaker of obstacles, nothing stands in his way. If you are stuck, ask for his assistance in moving forward in a heart centered way. Ask him to assist you in your healing process. Ask him to help you to take off the mask. Ask him to present you with the courage to make the necessary change, take the necessary action and move forward towards your destiny.

Make an altar, with a couple of candles, a picture of Lord Ganesha, and an offering, flowers or a crystal will do nicely. Burn some incense. Light the candles, say a prayer and set your intention. Know that success is inevitable, although what form it takes could be a bit of a pleasant surprise!

Namaste

Passion

Published March 1, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Passion, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

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

Passion: “Desire, Fun, Fulfillment, Joy”

“Your greatest point of power is found in the courage to fully ignite your passion.”

Card Story: “Emerging from an etheric field of deep heart green, a dancing being demonstrates what happens when Divine inspiration infuses a heart felt desire… A torch of pure resonant light ignites so deeply within that it changes the entire chemical makeup of the body it moves through. A pool becomes a wellspring, a stone becomes a diamond, an inner glow becomes the sun. At the very heart we see what is both the source and the outcome of the energy she or he exudes… Passion!”

Card Message: “Sometimes we get stuck on the treadmill of trying to get somewhere or be someone based on external pressures and expectations. We get stuck in our daily life routines so long that we forget what we are passionate about. We put aside thing we would really love to do with the justification that once we do ‘X’ (get this job, achieve that goal, earn that accolade), then we will have the freedom and the power to do what we really want to do.

What if you knew that your greatest point of power to truly live the life you came to live, was resting in the very center of that which you love the most?

It is time to give yourself permission to do more of the things that truly make you come alive. To remember what used to make you throw back the sheets in the morning and leap into the day – and to find a way to re-ignite that energy in your life now. What brings a spark to your eye and a lightness to your step? What fills your body with such excitement that it opens a smile deep in your soul?

It is true that love has the power to heal all wounds and open all doors, but it is our passion that allows us to leap through to the other side.

When we immerse ourselves in what we really love, we awaken a part of ourselves that is connected to the very pulse of life and everything just seems to flow. It is like our soul takes over and we feel invigorated with a powerful desire and drive. We get swept up, letting go of time, worries and any restrictions. We come away feeling rejuvenated and connected to an energy that washes over into all other areas of life. By engaging in our passion, we become the energy of passion, transferable and highly contagious wherever we go.

Find ways to re-ignite your daily life with things that you are passionate about, and the energy of your inner light will begin to lead you on a bright and bold new path of expression in the world.

Follow the pulse of your passion!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

March is an important month for 2018 and of course, it starts off with a bang, a big bright full moon just to get us started… January and February were to set the stage, we are still assimilating the cosmic energies. Lunar and solar eclipses, super full moons and the fertility of February’s dark month new moon. The first two months were used to get us ready. More clearing out and more setting of intention. More shifting of perspective and alignment with Soul path.

March is for stepping into your power. Doing rather than just getting ready for part one of the Main Event. And we must do it willingly or be dragged along in it’s wake… keep that in mind. It’s all about mindful and concise action. Going after what you want with the faith that it is possible to make it all happen. And happen it will.

If you were in a play, you would be standing center stage watching the curtains go up. The audience would be seated, enthusiastically anticipating the show (except these are your guides, cheering you on). You know your lines, you know where you need to be and there is no putting it off any longer. You are ready to step into the spotlight; so get excited about it! You know this is the real deal and there is no time or energy to waste, you must put in your best effort to reap the best rewards. Or suffer the consequences of course! No regrets is moving forward fearlessly; no opportunity missed or lost.

Do not let fears and doubts set in, just get out there and do it.

Everything you have done has culminated in this moment. You have all you need to succeed. All you need is to believe in yourself.

Gather your courage and strength and pour it into your passion. March is your month to be grand and bring your dreams to life.

Namaste

Strength ~ Elephant

Published February 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Strength ~ Elephant: “Courage and Endurance”

Card Message: “Elephant balances strength and gentleness, but the main source of her strength is love. Instead of using her strength to exert power over others, she uses it to keep others from exerting power over her. Her strength shines in her compassion, her self-esteem and in her levels of endurance. Her faith in her spiritual strength keeps her resilient. The spirit of Elephant is a reminder of what your life’s motivation is, fueling you with the drive and inner strength to pursue it.”

Key Words: “Self control, inner strength, courage, compassion, love, patience, vision, endurance.”

Strength ~ Elephant As Challenger: “Self-doubt will erode your courage. Reconnect to your core strength by drawing on your willpower. Count your current blessings, as this will renew your self-confidence.”

Challenger Keywords: “Fear, self-doubt, insecurity, imbalance, anger.”

~ by Paulina Cassidy

There will be challenges on the road ahead and they are simply tests of our commitment to ourselves and our dreams. Are we serious about what we are pursuing? Then we will be asked to prove it. Rather than getting frustrated or distracted or giving up or feeling sorry for ourselves, we will stay on track. We will believe in ourselves and we will use our inner resources to stay strong. We will not need to fight but we will stand true for what we believe in, and that is the medicine of elephant.

Elephants are very intelligent, they are family oriented and extremely loyal. They are sensitive and caring, and highly aware. They represent strong connection and harmony, protection and solidarity, and the Divine Feminine power of compassion and nurturing. All of these aspects can be used in your journey ahead.

Meditate on the above image and see what elephant has to tell you, there may be a special meaning just for you. Maybe you need a little extra courage and strength to face the challenges that lay ahead. Maybe you need to reconnect to family and realize that you are not isolated or alone. Maybe elephant wants you to know that you are stronger than you think.

Watch for elephant to come into your awareness in the coming days. Even a glimpse on television or a picture in a magazine is confirmation from the Universe that you are being taken care of and the strength you need is available to you. It is also a reminder to come back to this message and know that you are on the right path, that the challenges are only tests and that better things lie ahead for you.

So stay the course, and know that you have what it takes to succeed. Have faith in yourself and do not give up hope. Change can be uncomfortable but if you meet it with grace and acceptance you are sure to win.

Namaste

Royal Blue and Gold Dragon

Royal Blue and Gold Dragon, from the Dragon Oracle Cards, by Dianna Cooper, artwork by Carla Morrow

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Royal Blue and Gold Dragon, from the Dragon Oracle Cards, by Dianna Cooper, artwork by Carla Morrow

Royal Blue and Gold Dragon: “Strengthens you to stand in your power with wisdom.”

“Awaken to your own majesty. Wear your cloak of power with pride.”

About Royal Blue and Gold Dragon: “Royal blue and gold are the colours of majesty, dignity and illumined achievement. Royal blue and gold dragons carry these qualities and prompt us to stand in our magnificence and true power.

These fifth-dimensional dragons come to us when they see royal blue and gold in our aura, indicating that we hold wisdom with power in perfect balance, which has been earned through our connections with the Golden Era of Atlantis. We may have been incarnate or in spirit at that time, but we were living or serving on a higher path. The dragons will swirl round us, reminding us who we truly are and breathing light into our energy fields to reawaken our ancient gifts and talents so that we can utilize them once more in service. They will re-energize our cloak of power and wisdom so that we can wear it with pride.”

Guidance: “A royal blue and golden dragon is lighting up the gifts and talents you carry in our aura. It is breathing courage, support and dignity into you so that you can wear your cloak of power and wisdom with pride. Most important of all, it is awakening you to who you truly are. It is enabling you to radiate your special light.

This dragon is always with you. It holds your Sword Of Truth so that Archangel Michael can enable you to speak and act with truth and honour at all times. It roars at those who try to diminish you and befriends those who empower you. You have all the support you need to teach divine majesty by example.”*

~ By Diana Cooper

Courage, Support and Dignity. You are ready to move forward, step fully into your power. Hidden gifts, skills and talents are rising to the surface; you are about to surprise yourself with your seemingly newfound wisdom! But of course, these are gifts that you have held over many lifetimes, skills you have honed over the millenia, and talents that make you unique and so very valuable to the world at this time.

You came here for a very specific reason. To share them. To awaken, to remember. To assist others. To be an example and an inspiration. To lead and to heal and to uplift. To come together as One. It is time.

Yes there are dragons. We may not have been able to see them as of late, as the mist goes, and as the dimensions have been separated by the veils for so long. But they are there, in the higher elemental realm, lending their strength and power to those who are ready to accept and receive it. Fearlessly, joyfully; open heart and open mind. If you are not quite there yet give it time; the seed is planted now.

Soon you will come to realize that really, anything is possible and we are limited only by our conditioned minds. Break free from the conditioning, the limitations, the glass ceilings and remember now.

Anything is possible

Namaste

Dee
