Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ace of Wands, from the Shadowscapes Tarot Card deck, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Barbara Moore

Ace of Wands: “It is the possibility of creativity, excitement, adventure, a challenge to step forward with courage and confidence.

Plant the wand firmly in the ground and see it blaze forth with crimson light. Like a response of flint striking tinder, inspiration blooms from that illumination. The spirits and sylphs are drawn forth from their dwellings. In ordinary light they hide, indistinguishable from leaf and twig and stone and sky, but in this glow they slip out and stretch their wings. They sense that something is beginning. A spark has been lit. A challenge has been whispered. An invitation has been extended in this dawn hour.

Once lit, fire is unpredictable and difficult to control. Uncontained energy can flare into a raging wildfire. Seize this wild opportunity, and glory in the blaze.

They are beings of fire and the guardians for the wands: foxes, cats, lions. They flash with the sparks of intellect and wit, with fleet bodies that dart through the world, and with the burning flame of a fierce and strong spirit.”*

~ Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Barbara Moore

When was the last time you experienced wild passion in your life? How often do you really let yourself surrender to the sensual pleasures of this physical plane of reality? We are so often all up in our heads, keeping track of all our responsibilities and obligations, counting our money and our debts, worrying about what others think or how we are performing our duties.

This is an invitation to step past all of that and into something wild and fun and free. It’s a chance to be fired up about something you really believe in. It’s an opportunity to put yourself completely into what you love: body, mind and spirit. It is time to make a leap into love; embrace it, taste it, surround yourself with it; be it in every way possible.

Maybe you can share this passion with another, if so, lucky you! Don’t hold back! Light a fire with the person you love and take the walls down from around your heart; let them really see you, feel you, hear you right from the heart.

You may express this firey energy creatively; in an artistic way, or in the manifestation of a certain reality that you desire. Paint this reality in your imagination first, using your inner vision to bring it from the unmanifest to the manifest plane. Paint it with vivid colours, broad strokes and luscious detail. Fill it in with sound and feeling, desire and yearning. Finish it with excitement, anticipation and courage. And the absolute conviction that you deserve all the joy, love, happiness, healing and fulfillment that the Universe can send your way.

Namaste

Ra! Ra! Ra!

Ra! Ra! Ra!, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, card artwork by Gracjana Zielinska

Daily Angel Oracle card: Ra! Ra! Ra!, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, card artwork by Gracjana Zielinska

“Have you had enough of the dark side of life? Fear, doubt, uncertainty, anxiety, frustration and believing that you cannot manifest your dreams are signs you have been in the darkness too long. It is your time to step out of the darkness and into the light.”

“It takes a lot of courage to leave darkness behind and embrace the light. To step into the light means that you give up attachment to drama, the stories of suffering and the pain of the past. You don’t deny your struggles or your pain, but you know it is possible to let it go in favour of trust, reassurance, comfort and commitment to what holds meaning for you, again and again and again, for as often as needs be until you are free.

Sometimes the courage of stepping into the light means a willingness to set aside the mental anguish and say, ‘Today, I just choose to trust that everything is going to work out according to a higher and unconditionally loving divine plan that has my best interests at heart.’ It means that you acknowledge what you have gone thought without needing to keep score. It means that you are willing to pay more attention to what is happening in this moment, and to believe wholeheartedly that the universe is working with you and for you, not against you.

Like the sun cracking through the night to bring the dawn of a new day, the oracle of Ra! Ra! Ra! is your divine wake up call. Your dark days are numbered and your time in the divine spotlight is upon you. Be willing to shine your light, even if no-one else around you seems to understand, acknowledge or recognize it at first, or even for a long time! You are brave enough to shine true with or without out others holding your hand and encouraging you.

Maybe others need to find their way to you, so they can help you or be helped by your light. For that to happen, you are going to need to stand in the dark and shine with trust, patience and courage. If you have been in the dark, so to speak, for a while, you might find it hard to trust in the light at first. You might worry that the goodness won’t last and that it is better to be pessimistic now than disappointed later. Those are tricks of darkness. Don’t believe in them. Trust in the power of light within you and don’t be afraid to let it shine bright.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Place one hand over your heart. Breathe in and out and relax for several moments.

Then say the following aloud: “I call on the light of unconditional love. You fill me up and surround me in protective field of divine energy healing, grace, mercy, assistance and protection in all ways. Thank you.”

Gaze at the image on the oracle card and notice the orb of white light atop the goddess’s crown. Imagine, visualize, feel or pretend that you have such an orb of light hovering above your head now too. It shines upon you, a glowing white sun. It feels so good, shining beautiful soft white light all around you now.”

Say aloud: “The protective, healing power of light is with me now. Anything not of unconditional love must now leave my body, mind, soul and spirit. I place my trust in the light, leaving behind once and for all the darkness of night. Through my own free will and divine authority, so be it.”

You are now going to pretend that you are the most spiritually enlightened cheerleader ever. You have two imaginary pompoms that shine like suns, one in each hand. You are going to do a cheer for the ancient deity of the sun, known as Ra. This cheer is to call in the light.

Do your chant, “Ra! Ra! Ra!” whilst you wave your pompoms in the air. You are calling in a brand new era of light, the relief of suffering, for you and all beings.

You have finished your healing trick.”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and/or evening for a few days or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.

“Light infuses all parts of me and my life with loving power, protection and peace. Ra! Ra! Ra!”*

Tomorrow we step into a brand new month, full of Light and possibility. We are due for some lightening up in the energy department, my gosh, this year has been quite a ride so far! It’s time to step out of the darkness and into the Light.

But maybe that Light is within us All… maybe we keep looking for it outside of us and we can’t find it there. We look to the news, the media, all around us, expecting that one day we will wake up and everything will be alright… no wars, no disease, no violent or poverty or anything bad happening anywhere! We will wake up and it will all be healed. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well yes of course it would but unfortunately, it’s also pretty unlikely to find that kind of perfection overnight… especially in the third dimension of reality!

Instead, we must find our peace, balance, harmony, healing, love and light… within. We must use it as the lens we see every living being. We can strive to detach from the drama and refuse to get sucked into the vortex of fear, and instead, look for the Light.

And when we find it?

That’s when the outside world will change around us. And then, who knows what’s possible? Maybe, just maybe we will wake up one day and everyone is finally playing nice.

Namaste

The Desert

The Desert, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Desert, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

The Desert: “Sacred Archetypal Element Of Fire”

“In the desert, we are surrounded by sand and a fiery red sky, with sun pouring down on the ground and wavy energy rising into the air. This is not a mirage, but rather another dimension – the domain of fire. Many mystics have quested for answers to life’s deepest questions in that place of aridity, fire and heat, for it is a place of true transformation. The energy of fire is quick; it consumes everything in its path in the blink of an eye.

The energies of fire push us toward the death of the old and the struggle for new birth, for when we go out into the desert we realize how tenuous our hold is on life, and how easily and quickly we might perish. Yet it is in our willingness to die to the old and leap into the fires of transformation that we surrender the outcome and the future to wisdom tempering quality of fire: it burns away the dross, which includes everything except the essence of what needs to be carried forth. Out of the flaming heat, the scorching fires of transformation, true wisdom is born, rising up out of the desert pyre like a phoenix with brilliant multicolored feathers glinting in the relentless sun.

When you draw this card, it indicates that you are in a fiery process of death, rebirth, and transformation. Spend some time sitting before an open fire or in the sunlight. Light some candles, especially in the dark days of winter. As you meditate on the desert and fire, consider what no longer serves you and offer it to the fire. Ask the fire to embrace and guide you safely through your transformation. Fire can provide you with the courage to face whatever challenge is before you, and the energy and vitality to accomplish your goals with responsiveness, wit and passion.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Venus is back direct and things are going to heat up a little, it’s about time! Oh how I have missed our beautiful Goddess of Love energy. We were forced deep into the nether regions of our psyche to unearth all that old pain and trauma concerning relationships and self love that we has been holding us back. It’s been challenging, but oh so necessary for us to purge and clear all that old junk out. The future is not the past. We have learned our lessons and we have released them. We are finally ready to move forward fearlessly, giving and receiving love.

Are you ready?

Ok not to spoil the fun… but be aware that this is where we are headed, but there may be just a little residual energy to deal with before things get really juicy… sigh… just when we thought it was all passion and love…

So here we have the desert… and do not worry, the element of Fire will help us to burn away all the fear, all the doubt, all the excuses and anything and everything else that has been keeping us stuck for way too long. It was high time to clean house! Now take all that old clutter you don’t need anymore and offer it up to fire. Literally write it all down, light a candle, and burn it away (obviously being careful not to light yourself or anything else on fire while you are at it!)

You are the phoenix, rising up from the ashes. What will you create now? What will  you allow to come into  your life now? What else is possible?

Invite love and passion and sensuality.

Be love and passion and sensuality.

Ooh, is it getting hot in here or is it just me?

Namaste

Alice

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Alice, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Alice: “New worlds are calling you forth where the old rules do not apply. It might seem strange, or freeing, or wild, or even scary at first, but you are meant to explore these new worlds. You will gain so much from the experience. There is no need to be afraid.”

“When your world becomes too small for your spirit, it can feel painful, like trying to walk about in shoes you have outgrown. If you do  this for too long you can feel crippled with pain and unable to walk at all! You have a spirit that is outgrowing the worlds you have known and is yearning to experience new ones.

The universe is responding to your spiritual need to broaden your horizons with new friends, opportunities and communities that are, or soon will, become available to you.

You may welcome the unfamiliar, or you may find it intimidating. You may wonder if you belong in those possibly strange new worlds, or you may feel like you have come home. No matter whether it is just another world you are meant to pass through on your life adventure, or a return to a true soul family you never knew you had, there is value in this next phase of your life path. It is essential to your overall life plan and divine destiny.

When Alice appears, she brings a message that it is safe to enter into new worlds – whether those worlds are of ideas, new lifestyles, social communities or other like minded groups, or even other places. As strange or unsettling as it might seem at first, you will soon learn the ways of those other worlds and flourish there. Alice also indicates a time when your perception is opening up – intuition, insight, visions and creativity will increase and flow, and it is recommended that you value those things rather than dismiss them as ‘imagination’ or ‘fantasy.’

You are encouraged to follow that which is novel or unusual, that which seems to take you into new worlds, rather than making do with what already has been. Following those initial inspirations will open doors for you and gain you entry into entirely new and exciting worlds. You are ready for adventure, whether you know it or not.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Skip in a circle from left to right. If you are adept at multi-tasking, you can repeat the following chant at the same time. Or if you prefer to do one thing at a time, skip around a few times and then read the chant before skipping some more.

Say this chant at least three times:
‘Different places, unknown faces, I open up to worlds anew.
There is so much goodness waiting for me as I leave behind what I once knew.’

You have finished your healing trick.

Affirmation:

“Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and or evening for a few days or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.

‘New worlds, faces and places
Bring me the three graces
Of love, luck and laughter
Ever increasing, from now till hereafter.”*

Well I’m not sure how you feel about skipping, but hey, I think right now we just might need all the help we can get, so it may just be worth a shot! Mix up the energy, bring in some fresh new vibes; relive your childhood. Smile! Laugh! Would you not welcome a brand new world full of fun and adventure, peace and Love?

We are creating a new world; all of us, yes, you too. We have the opportunity to ascend at this time with our planet into a brand new five dimensional reality. Yet our feet may feel stuck in mud right now… or quick sand. So we may think that it is not possible… maybe that is what “they” want us to think… the orange one especially.

But what if it is just mud? Think of the lotus flower, rising up out of the murky depths and blooming brightly in the light of the sun. What else is possible?

Watch your thoughts vigilantly right now, for they are your energy. What you put out into the Universe is what you will create. Be mindful. Be positive. Feel your power and use it wisely, for the Highest Good Of All, and your Highest Good.

Create an amazing new reality. Create miracles. Receive your gifts. Create a brand new world. Bright and beautiful and free.

Wake up! We need you, the time is Now.

Namaste

Beyond The Threshold Of Fear

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Beyond The Threshold Of Fear, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Beyond The Threshold Of Fear:

“Enter the lion’s jungle!
Don’t think about getting hurt!
Fearful thoughts are
phantoms of the mind!

No one is harmed in this jungle.
Everything is compassion and love.
It is your fear holding you back,
like a bar behind the door.”

~RUMI

“How I celebrate for you. After so long away from home, you are finally returning! Beyond the threshold of fear, you dispense with your doubts, hesitations, cautions and tentativeness. They are old friends with whom you no longer have anything in common.

‘Goodbye old friends, I wish you well,’ you say, whilst turning your face to the burgeoning light of a new and yet ancient world. You are visiting as though for the first time and yet, somehow, also remember deep in your sacred heart. Finally, we can sit together in the charming courtyard at home. We shall tell our tales of adventure and laugh, and we’ll dance and sing. Eventually, day shall pass into night and we’ll gaze beneath our feet, our mouths gaping open in awe and minds utterly blank, rendered dumb in sweet submission to beauty, as we watch the world spinning on her axis.”

After so long, you are changing your relationship to fear; no more shall it hold you in its thrall. You are becoming able to observe it, to witness it, even to have compassion rather than resistance. Instead of unconsciously sabotaging your growth and choosing to slumber in darkness, you awaken and delight in the light and sound of your divine being.

Push and pull, one step forward and a half step back. So it has been for so long, and you have endured. Yes, you are winning the race, brave one, and fear is left to fizzle out. It was always a far less beautiful firework than your passionate conviction for love anyway. Better to let that dazzling firework come to light instead – much more satisfying.

Oh, what a spiritual marathon you have been running! Now the end is in sight. You are drinking the sacred waters to replenish you from your journey. The cups are pushed into your hands by encouraging angels as you approach that blessed sash marking the finish line. Your body and soul are on this journey together and now they are ready for victory, and yes, to rest and recover from the effort. Rest now before a new adventure begins from a completely different state of being.

This oracle comes with spiritual guidance for you. You have broken through a barrier, a self-imposed barrier of fear (whether it seemed to originate from within your consciousness or from an external set of circumstances) that held you back from taking the steps you are now taking, or just about to take. These steps may feel strange, new, uncertain and exciting. Your mind might not have received the memo that fear based existence is no longer in operation for you. It may need a loving, tender, reassuring and firm update that the relationship you have with fear is now rather different. You are the witness, not the victim. Your consciousness is strong enough to hold it in compassion. You don’t collapse under its weight; in fact, it is becoming less and less substantial for you. When it is there, it seems less convincing than what it once appeared to be, compelling still at times perhaps, but not anywhere near as powerful as it once was. That power has been claimed by your heart instead.

So give your mind the memo! Get used to the new way and take steps. Test your legs – you’ll find them powerful and ready. Get set to fly! Test your wings – trust is one, daring is the other. You’ll find them enthusiastic for flight and ready to learn to ride the currents, purpose-built for soaring to great heights. Trust in your vision – without the murky filter of fear  it is sharp and clear. You can see what is meant for you, what is true for you what is beckoning you forward now. Take the running leap. There is no darkness and light for you anymore – just life, living, free and clear. I’ll be running and flying beside you. We’ll soar and dive and rise, together. Let’s play!”*

~ by Alana Fairchild

We are inundated by fear and chaos. That is how they are trying to control us; it’s always worked in the past. They want us to feel small, insignificant and powerless. They want us to feel that there is nothing that we can do to change what is happening. They want us in victim mode, helpless, hopeless, fearful and distrusting. It’s called Separation.

But it’s shifting. We are shifting. We are waking up. Awakening.

Their hold is loosening, not because they want it to but because they can no longer hold us. We are too bright, too full of Light. Too powerful. Too peaceful.

Too… awake…

We can change what is happening by refusing to buy into the fear and the chaos. It is not an easy job, yes it is challenging and yes there will be opposition. But, it is necessary, it is vital and it is no longer an option to ignore what must be done. It is no longer feasible to sleepwalk, to ignore, to play small. It is time to come out of hiding and blaze brightly, so brightly that empowerment is the only option.

Namaste

Grace In Full Flight

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Grace In Full Flight, from the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Wang Yiguang

“I have witnessed your courage and your struggles, you trust and your doubts, the joy of your triumph and the despair and determination when success has been beyond your grasp. Still you dream. Still you dare. Still you hope. How I adore that dreaming, daring and hopeful heart of yours. And now it is time for me to life you. At the end of your efforts, when your resources are exhausted, and you are without further recourse, I make my presence felt. For no matter how much will is within you to fly, no matter how ready you may be, without the breath from my lungs, creating the air, no flight can happen. I gift you with the sacred breath and now your efforts will show results. My grace is upon you. Your time has come.”

“There is a time when it is time. Your time. It is the right time for an idea to come to fruition, for something miraculous and yet tangible and concrete to happen. The oracle of Grace in Full Flight speaks of such a moment. The improbably, is now finally coming to life. You have been learning how to let go without giving up. Perhaps through being tempered by life and initiation, learning and struggling until you have been pushed beyond your limits physically, emotionally or mentally, you have had to give up your control and learn to surrender. This process might have taken years, and you may enter into it, again and again, for shorter periods of time, surrendering where you have not realized you have tried to assert control again, driving a project or situation forwards according to your own desires rather than trusting in a greater hand guiding the way. You have learned the art of balance – of taking action that feels inspired from the heart, or discipline, devotion and commitment, without trying to force an outcome.

You have learned that it is only through conscious action combined with true surrender that grace can truly take full flight. And when this happens it is breathtaking. There is no limit to what grace renders possible. This is the realm of the miraculous, the rebirth of that thought truly lost, the pathway opening up where it once was blocked, barred, denied or even invisible to you. This is the right thing, the right person, and the right time, all falling into place effortlessly. It is a cosmic ‘green light’ saying, ‘Yes, move ahead, now is the time.’

This oracle brings you a message. Your time for manifestation, for the fullness of success, is either upon you now or close at hand. It will come, and soon. Now is not the time to force anything or try to grasp control. Even if it seems as though you are losing the very thing you want to hold onto by letting go, do it anyway. If you try to manoeuvre events you will just get in the way. Let go with patience, trust and serenity. You will see the unthinkable happening in the most beautiful of ways in perfect timing. This is the masterstroke of the divine artist. It will be worth any effort applied to become effortless so that grace can happen. It wants to happen now, or very soon. Be determined to allow it.

The oracle of Grace In Full Flight brings you a message to trust in what you feel beneath the surface of things rather than what appears to be…. It indicates a quickening on your path into accelerated manifestation of your desires into physical form.

You are being asked to trust unconditionally. So even if all appears to be going backwards at an alarming rate, do not give in to doubt, do not dispense with trust. The ocean appears to pull back in order to build another wave that will soon reach the shore. So it is with the unfolding of life and the mysterious workings of grace. You must trust unconditionally. There is no need for fear or anxiety here. Although it may seem unfamiliar or strange to you, it is completely appropriate to wait and rest to allow life to have its way. When it is time for you to act again, to take flight by using you won wings, you will feel the air lift you and naturally, flight will happen. The oracle gives an indication of timing that this fulfillment, this manifestation, is close to happening, if it hasn’t already begun.

If you have been asking for a healing, praying for another person, or for a situation in your own life that has you utterly stumped and unsure of how to proceed, this oracle answers that prayer with this guidance. Leave it up to the Divine Mother. Your prayer has been heard and your answer will come from beyond your own efforts. If you feel prompted to act, then act; but otherwise, be at peace. Resolution is happening even now. It will be powerful, swift and complete.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Just as our faith falters, just as we slip back into our old patterns and routines, just as we give up or give in… we are granted a reprieve. We are gifted another shot, a second chance at what we are trying to create. If only we could learn to hold our head up high, despite the chaos and feelings of isolation and overwhelm. If only we were steadfast in our faith, unshakable in our self-worth and absolutely certain of our imminent success.

Alas, the Goddess steps in to rescue our battered hearts. She knows what it is that we desire beyond all else and lifts us up to grasp it.

A person or opportunity is coming to you. Just what you have been praying for. Just what you have been hoping, dreaming and denying possible. Make space in your heart; make space in your mind. Open yourself to the possibility. Maybe it looks different than what you expected, for now. Yet, upon closer inspection it is actually so very much better. Beyond your wildest dreams.

Expand your awareness.

Release the fear.

Embrace the new and go with it. Let it change your life for the better.

Namaste

The Velvet Queen

Published November 23, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

The Velvet Queen: “A rare prize is to be bestowed upon you. The universe is confirming that the most luscious dreams of your heart are being nurtured into manifestation. To this end, you shall be given a saving grace, an intervention if need be. To be open to receive, surrender doubt in favour of unconditional trust. Through your trust and optimism, you make it easier for the universe to give you a most deserved gift.”

“A rare prize is worth the effort to attain it. Your efforts will need to include loving discipline. Loving discipline is not about trying to bend the world according to your will but rather about readying yourself to align with the spirit of what you want to receive.

To receive, rather than attempt to take by force, requires strength, trust, spiritual intelligence and courage. It is easier to try and force things from a fearful place, but it is more effective and empowering to learn how to attract and receive through consciously chosen surrender. This allows the universe to do its best work for you!

To surrender is not about passivity, but doing all we can do and then trusting life enough to let go and allow the outcome to be what it will. Surrendering is not giving up. It’s about trusting that there is a great and generous intelligence expressing itself through our lives, and if open to it, great treasures are bestowed upon us.

So the discipline spoken of here is about changing your consciousness. It asks you to release issues around self-worth. Why should you not be empowered and assisted by the universe to create a life that fills you with joy and feels ‘just right’ for you? Of course you should, can and will be! Release any lack of self-worth that would get in the way of your opening in complete trust to the universe.

The Velvet Queen assists in shifting the mind from scarcity to prosperity consciousness where we feel we can receive precious gifts with an easy open attitude, neither holding on to them out of fear, nor pushing them away out of shame or guilt. When she enters your life, she brings a sign of abundance headed your way. This might manifest itself in many and varied ways: in financial wealth; in career opportunities; increased love and affection in your relationships; or as a sense of living in the rich fullness of life, spiritually as well as emotionally and materially.

She also indicates a prize that is worth attaining. It is said that the sweetest fruit is at the top of the tree and therefore worth the climb. The Velvet Queen lets you know that your most prized dream is within reach, through a combination of letting life unfold as it will and your own disciplined efforts. Don’t give up. You cannot make the fruit on the tree grow faster – that will happen according to the rhythm of life – but you can certainly do your part to be ready to climb the tree at the right moment to savour the sweetness of success.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Say the following statement aloud:
“I release all fears and judgments I have ever made, in this or any lifetime, about material possessions, fear of loss, fear of greed, fear of distraction and fear of attachment. I open my hands and heart to receive all I need, when I need it, for as long as I need it, to live my beautiful and unique life path.”
You are now going to visualize, imagine, feel or pretend that you can breathe in and out through your entire body. You can inhale deeply not only through your mouth or nose, but also through your skin.
As you inhale gently, you take in the gift of life. As you exhale gently, not only out of your mouth and nose, but also out of the pores of your skin, you easily release what you no longer need (even if you don’t consciously know what that is).
Do this for several moments.
When you feel relaxed and clearer, say this statement three times:
‘I receive a sweet and rare prize designed to be mine,
Through the power of love divine.’
You have finished your healing trick.”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and/or evening for a few days, or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.
‘I am strong and have surrendered into the perfection of life’s loving grace.’*

~By Alana Fairchild, Card Artwork: “Carnelia” by Maxine Gadd

Again we are put on notice of wonderful gifts coming our way from the Universe! And again we are reminded not to block them through fear, self-doubt, feelings of lack or feelings of low self-worth.

Become the magnet for what you desire to create. Live in faith. Trust in the Universe to provide. Know that you are worthy. Know that you are Divine. Know that what you desire most; what you dream of, is possible. It may not come in the form that you think, but it will come. And it will be better than you ever thought possible!

Dream. Be. Trust. Believe. Know in your heart that it is coming to you as you read this.

And so it is

Namaste
