Strength ~ Elephant

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: “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

A gift of courage for the Spiritual Warrior (yup, that’s you!) Strength, fearlessness, calm in the face of the storm. You got this!

Change is inevitable. Transformation is imminent. We are called to dive into our inner wisdom and access our greatest resources. We are called to take a leap of faith, daunting as it may seem, diving straight into a brand new aspect of ourselves. Start fresh. Something brand new and exciting, even if it terrifies you.

We are being granted a wish here. The wish we have been wishing for so very long. We have the chance to make it happen. To take a chance. To take action steps to manifest it into our reality. The dreaming is over, the doing is here now. The window is open, act before it shuts.

If you have a Tiger’s Eye, keep it close now. (If you don’t they are super easy to come by and generally very affordable at any metaphysical or rock shop). It will assist you to have the strength to get through this time, which may start out challenging but will level out. One chapter ending, a new one beginning.

And so it is

Namaste

Amazonite ~ Life Purpose

Published July 26, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Amazonite ~ Life Purpose, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Amazonite ~ Life Purpose, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Amazonite

Crystal Colour: “Bluish green with white streaks”

Related Chakras: “Solar Plexus and Crown Chakras”

Crystal Medicine: “Amazonite invites us all to connect with this powerful crystal, offering the opportunity to discover your life purpose. It is constantly encouraging you to follow your dreams, and brings to the surface for healing any fear or doubts that may hold you back from truly stepping onto your path. This powerful medicine allows you to unlock the inner wisdom that is required to awaken your divine purpose here on Earth.”

Crystal Meaning: “Aligns you to your life purpose and encourages you to step onto the path with strength and courage. Assists you in finding the divine truth in all things. Facilitates deep internal reflection. Encourages you to come into alignment with your divine will, manifesting your heart’s desires.”

Oracle reading Message From the Crystal Deva Amazonite: “The devas have arrived today to suggest it is a perfect time to focus your attention on your life purpose. It is the birthright of everyone on this planet to know, experience, and embody fully his or her divine purpose. Your life purpose is your essence and what you love to do expressed and manifested through you. The devas of Amazonite encourage you to actively connect to a deeper aspect of yourself, your wisdom, and your soul’s purpose here on Earth. Events, situations, inspirations, and actions occurring right now are all part of the plan aligning and connecting you to your life purpose. As you work with the devas, you are encouraged to let go of any fears associated with stepping onto  your divine path. Trust that you are worthy and deserving of manifesting and living your dreams. Open and receive the new insights and awareness that is flowing into your life right now. Work actively with Amazonite and become aware of the synchronicities and signs given to you by the devas and the Universe. Continue to trust your intuition and inner guidance as you allow your life purpose to manifest into this world.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Ahhh so this is what yesterday’s card wished us to create with our focused intention, of course, our life purpose. When we manifest the path of our soul purpose, we step into alignment with all that is our birthright; all the joy, the bliss, the peace, balance and abundance. Doors open for us. Opportunity presents itself to us. The right people walk into our lives and the right people walk out of them too. Synchronicity abounds; signs, symbols and messages are coming in strong. Anything is possible when you align with your purpose as you are aligning with the reason you came here, guided by your Higher Self. Notice that the above messages asks us to “allow” your life purpose to manifest, this means that there is an aspect of surrender and trust; having faith that if you follow your heart and focus on your dreams you can manifest anything you truly desire. It’s also a reminder to get out of your own way, which usually means releasing all those “shoulds” out of your inner dialogue, shoulds are the egos way of keeping us in a fear state, release them and do what you know is in your heart and you cannot go wrong.

Amazonite has volunteered to assist you in this important work. If you have an amazonite it is the perfect time to wear, carry or place it under your pillow. If you do not have one, they are very easy to come by in any reputable metaphysical shop. Hold your amazonite in your right hand and ask it to assist you in finding and aligning with your true soul path. Follow your intuition and your inner guidance.

Be receptive to change; yet another level of transformation is at hand.

Namaste

Ace of Wands

Published May 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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!

Published April 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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!”*

~by Alana Fairchild, card artwork “Cleopatra” by Gracjana Zielinska

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

Published April 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

Dee
