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

Harmony: “You deserve to feel good about your existence.”

“The card is symbolic of your personal beliefs and what will bring you happiness in your life. Ganesha is asking you to remember to radiate warmth and energy. Take some time to reflect on your personal values and attitudes. What do you believe will bring you the outcomes you are longing for in order to have a complete and happy life?

The colour orange can refer to a period of socializing, activity and new adventures. Orange is the colour of the Sacral Chakra and is associated with the sexual organs and reproductive systems. It can symbolize happiness and love. We store our feelings, emotions, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy and connection in this domain. How deserving do you feel? When you feel that you deserve good, you treat yourself well and require that others treat you well also. When the Sacral Chakra is clear and the energy is in balance, you are friendly, compassionate, and empathic with a concern for other. You will experience a very strong sense of belonging.

Feel good about your life. Enjoy time with friends and do what is necessary to bring yourself in alignment with what you want from the relationships in your life.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

There is an essence of sacred sexuality here, of sensuality. Luxuriating in the senses. Being in the moment. Making connections that matter. Lasting friendships, deep relationships. Delving into the soul of another. It may be romantic, it may be platonic, but there is intimacy, truth, authenticity. All the things that matter most. Bonds are formed or strengthened. Acceptance, allowance, and Unconditional Love is key.

There is creativity here, manifestation. Co-creation. Making of things that are important; vital to the future. Building something structurally sound, a foundation that will hold steady under pressure. Harmony between body, mind and spirit. A meeting of the minds.

Self-belief, balanced self-worth. Confidence, self-expression. Creativity. Anything is possible.

Wear orange if you can get away with it. Hold, wear or place under your pillow a carnelian crystal. Lie down and place it a couple of inches below your belly button on your abdomen and let it work its magic, clearing, empowering. Meditate. Breathe all the way in, deep into your belly, feeling it rise and fall.

Do something interesting today. Shake things up a little. Don’t hesitate. Don’t think too much about it, just go for it. Have a little adventure. Flirt a little. Surprise someone special. Plan a date night. Make a fancy supper. Indulge a little. Splurge. Splash out.

Harness the energy of Harmony, of joy, happiness and connection. Pull yourself into the moment. Look around you. Take time to experience deep gratitude for all the magic.

Namaste

Three Of Wands

Published November 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Wands, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Wands, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Three Of Wands: “Opportunity”

The Dream: “Three cupids – representing heart, mind, and action – have spontaneously joined together. These bringers of opportunity sense the imminent realization of a wish. Red flowers and flames symbolize the energy and light available at this time of creative invention. The special joy of self expression that comes fearlessly to life retains the purity and innocence of childhood, when all things are new. Two of the cupids hold the three wands aloft; the third, in his excitement, has almost let go of his share of responsibility. They are playfully acting out the message to us that without clarity of vision, cooperation, and concentration, this opportunity might come to naught. They caution us to use this fateful moment of joyful awareness and creativity wisely.”

The Awakening: “Adopt a viewpoint that allows you to see directly as a child and look for playmates or soul mates, for collaboration in a happy enterprise. Let this moment of openness be joined with practicality and find others who will add their specific skills for a successful conclusion to a shared venture. Now is the time to reap what you have sown.”

The Enchantment: “Using brightly colored crayons, draw a picture of what you need or wish to manifest. Place the drawing under three orange candles on the night of a new moon. Light the candles. When the candles have burned out, an opportunity should present itself. Remember to see with the eyes of a child, for if you look only for what you expect your opportunity to look like, you might miss it.”

Quick Read

Message: “You need to become more aware of the opportunities that exist for you right now. There may be more than you are aware of. To best see and take advantage of them you must concentrate, cooperate, and remain open minded.”

Outcome: “You will become aware of at least one great opportunity. It may not come in the form you expect. If you are alert, open-minded and willing to cooperate, you will get your wish. The time to meet a great playmate, and maybe even your soul mate, may be here.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Have you been taking life way too seriously? Have you been feeling suffocated by obligation and responsibility, of all the “have-to’s, should’s and must-do’s” with not nearly enough fun and lightheartedness? You are not alone, this has been one hell of a year so far! So much change, so much chaos… so much that we have to do in a day that they all start blending together.

But right now, you are being offered a vibrational reprieve. You are being offered a chance to lift your spirits, a chance to leave the mundane and travel in another realm, another reality. Do you accept this magical offer?

This card is about inspiration. The kind of inspiration that makes a rainy Wednesday the most exciting day of the week… do you remember that feeling? That feeling that even though you may go through the same motions, there is something lighter and more fun… something that lifts you up and makes you soar. Something that makes everything feel like it’s going to be ok after all. An opportunity to leave the rut and experience something that makes your heart beat faster.

Love. Opportunity. Passion. A new idea. A new direction. Something unexpected… anything is possible here and for each of us it will be different. Maybe it will be a business venture, the perfect place to live, a dream vacation or a soul mate… only you will know.

Do the exercise as suggested. It’s a new moon tonight. Draw the pic, place it under a candle, you can even put it outside somewhere safe where it can’t catch anything on fire… or have a bath and relax by the candlelight! Set your intention to come to fruition by the full moon.

And let the magic happen

Namaste

Crystal Meaning:

“~Activates the Kundalini energy

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “This powerful card indicates it is time to open up to the powerful life-force energy of the cosmos and to your own sexuality. The universal creative energy flows through you deeply at all times and is a natural part of life. It is now time to heal any wounds and is a natural part of life.

Work with them as you open and heal old perceptions, wounds, and even judgments you have made around sex. Once you release negative beliefs and restrictions and allow yourself to break free of social constraints, you will set yourself free. The devas urge you to honor yourself as a divine and sacred sexual being. If you are uncomfortable or feel you have wounds about sexuality, seek the support and guidance of a professional who can assist your healing process and allow this part of you to heal, grow, and express itself. You are also guided to work closely with the magical medicine of Crocoite to support your awakening to the life-force energy of the cosmos. It is time to set yourself free and dance in the sexual creative energy of the Universe in a positive light.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

With all the trauma bubbling up to the surface right now, it is not surprising that this message comes to us. This is a time of transparency and it is a time of deep emotional healing. It is the end of an era, and the beginning of something much more honest. It will be the celebration of equality that replaces the hierarchy of fear and domination.

One day objectification will be looked upon as atrocious; just as sexual assault is now. Finally. One day people will be loved and accepted for who they are, not chased and tormented as something to be owned. Those who attempt to use their power to intimidate will be left alone, isolated, ostracized; unable to bully, coerce or force themselves on others. One day.

One day we will stand up for ourselves and say that enough is enough and we quite literally won’t take it anymore. One day. That day is not so far, it is within reach.

But until that day comes, we will heal ourselves from the inside out. We will hear each others stories. We will honour each others pain. We will hold space for each others progress from the deep dark mud of it all into the light. No story will remain untold. No agressor will remain innocent and no victim will go unheard.

And then we can bloom again. Bigger and bolder and brighter than ever before. We can create something brand new. We can manifest a whole new way of being in this crazy world and transform it as we do so.

Supporting each other as we reach for the stars.

Namaste

Page Of Wands

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

Page Of Wands: “With confidence and a childlike joy, she plays her instrument, sending forth her message. The cadences dance in swirling melodies, a song of confidence and assurance. The strident beats mark a quick tempo that is irresistible to any who hear it. She smiles, knowing that she is the center of attention as she draws our all the creatures of the woods. Excitement fills the air, and breathless exuberance.

From ether and the nether-realms,
From sea and skies, come to my side!
I summon all to heed this call:
come flock to me! Come run, swim,
Stride!

Page Of Wands is creative and passionate. She is witty, charismatic, and outspoken with her philosophy. She knows her mind and is direct and forthright when she has an opinion. She may be a teacher, eager to pass on that kernel of knowledge that she possesses. She is the fiery spark of initiative, inventive, and she dares you to delve within and seek out the opportunities that may be frightening but have so much potential. Sometimes the actions that push you to the limits of comfort are the most rewarding. She tells you to do and not sit there with only mute desire. Action is what is important. Can you hear her song ringing in your ears? Can you hear its sweet seduction singing with the voice of impulse?”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Creation, manifestation, passion and incentive are all the messages of today’s card. It is about doing, being, advancing, expanding; there is no procrastination here. It is about quick wits and intuition; following your gut instincts and taking colourful and creative action.

Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras are most important now too: confidence, will power, self-belief, self-worth and self-esteem; sensuality and sexuality are all important factors in our lives now. We have the ability to step fully into our true authentic selves. We have the opportunity to align with our dreams and use our deepest passions to paint the canvas of our reality.

Music, art, poetry, wisdom and self-expression all play a part here. Get your creative juices flowing by doing whatever it is that you love to do. In your own unique way of doing it. Communication, teaching, and clarity of vision are key factors to the manifestation of your reality. Make a vision board, research that trip you are dying to go on and print off the info, pin it to your fridge. Look into taking or teaching a course or class. Sign up for a workshop and learn something new.

And most importantly, create with love and with joy. Create with passion and vitality. Infuse love into every aspect of your creation; always leaving space for more and more.

And so it is

Namaste

Thurisaz

Published July 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Thurisaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco artwork by Jimmy Manton

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

Thurisaz: “Do not get drawn into unnecessary drama. There are many sides to every story, so make sure you research a situation thoroughly before making a decision. Ignorance is no excuse. Choose wisdom and remove the old thorn in your side. Choose the positive flow of enthusiasm, fecundity and passion, rather than aggression, small mindedness and force.”

“I am the hammer of wisdom:
I smash ignorance,
Exploding smallness,
Expanding outwards,
The thorn no longer in my side.
I am Thurisaz”

Thurisaz (pronounced, “thoor-ee-saws” is part of the Elder Futark. Although often referred to as a “thorn,” this rune more accurately represents Thor’s hammer, Mjollnir, and the god himself. Thor, a protective figure, who defended Asgard from the giants, is the hero one calls upon to fight for freedoms and balanced expansion.

The hammer can easily be misconstrued as a dull brute of a weapon, but in this case the hammer is used to smash ignorance and small mindedness, as well as clear away untruth. There is a solidity that Thurisaz requires, an acknowledgment that we have the wisdom and tools we need within us – that we do not always have to look outward for validity.

Thurisaz suggests that courage may be needed to overcome our hesitancy to strive for greater creativity or prosperity. Both self-sabotage and chronic procrastination are challenges for many. Thurisaz gives us the confidence to break through these forms of fear with passion and gladness.”

Thurisaz as Challenger: “Beware of those who hold a smaller vision of life than you do – and of those who may envy your dreams or vision. You may need to undertake more research before you make a key decision, otherwise the result may be quite detrimental to you or your business. Ignorance is no excuse. Do your due diligence. Be aware of being heavy handed or pushing people too hard, as this will only backfire.”

Element: “Earth, Fire”*

~ by Stacey Demarco

Yesterday’s message was a message of truth. Absolute, uncompromising truth. Today’s message is a message about clearing away all obstacles which prevent this pure truth from prevailing in your reality right now.

What needs to be smashed? A limiting belief system perhaps? An old way of being in the world? A victim or lack mentality? Regret, guilt, shame or resentment that is holding you back? Smash all that, Thor is generously offering us Mjollnir to do so… can you visualize it? This is a call to be done with what no longer serves you.

This messages also has an underlying tone of the energy of Kali, the goddess who destroys evil beings and also our fears; ultimately creating the chaos necessary to free us from the ties that bind us or hold us down. When Kali comes you know that the Universe has tried coaxing, nudging and drawing you to where you need to be. But you haven’t been listening. Enter Kali. Things are about to be stirred up. The truth must come out now. Go willingly or weather the storm.

It’s always up to you.

Namaste

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity

Published June 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Stones ~ Creativity, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity: “A huge trilithon stands amid bushes and rocks. On the left hand pillar there is a great aurochs from the painted caves of France; on the right is an ancient horse known as Przewalski. Standing between the stones, one hand on each, is a Green Woman, from whose feet roots of energy spread out as she draws upon the strength of the stones and the earth.”

Meaning of the Card: “An artist listens to the inner voice and hears the wind song of the universe. The courage, freedom and skill that allow the artist to mediate this energy must be refined and focused for effective and meaningful achievement.”

Reading Points: “The practical manifestation of creative energy requires a clear and open channel to the inspirational forces and impulses of the universe. Allowing this energy to flow through you is a rich and rewarding gift in itself. Just as releasing your dreams and desires into the universal consciousness always brings a response, so the releasing of creative energy invites into the artist the healing and enriching fuel from which further insight and visionary stimulus flows. This emotional and spiritual relationship with divine inspiration allows the subconscious mind to delve deeply and summons the intuitively creative power that actualizes work. Artistic beauty takes many forms and presents itself in a variety of ways, but the relationship with the subconscious formative energy, whether through music, painting, sculpture, or poetry, reminds us of the personal and intimate connection we all should share with the universal consciousness.”*

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

We are so much more than our daily routine, our jobs, our bills and our responsibilities. Yet this is what takes up the majority of our time and energy. We can feel like we are literally drowning in obligation, our time doesn’t feel like our own, there is always something more which could be done. Many of us need permission to take a break, we must ask our bosses or our family if we can just take a day to ourselves; make arrangements to cover our usual tasks or caregiving. It can be draining, exhausting, and definitely a challenge to the flow of our creative juices.

As the card shows us, one of the most powerful ways we can recharge ourselves is by spending time in nature. Just looking at the peaceful expression in the Green Woman’s face captures it all; the vitality and prana energy she is receiving from the natural world. It is time that you got back to nature? Have you been feeling like you are being pulled in too many different directions? Are you in need of some inspiration, does your zest for life need a bit of a boost?

Creativity is as vital to us as any other aspect of our lives, yet it is the first thing to go when are in survival mode. We focus instead on making money, on providing for ourselves and our families and protecting what is ours. We don’t make time to do what we love to do, as it seems like a luxury.

It’s time to get creative, stir up the old energy and manifest something new. Creativity comes in many forms, it can be an artistic outlet, or it can be using your vibrant imagination to draw what you desire to you. It can be a way of expressing yourself in the world that feels right to you; whether it is judged by others or not! However creativity comes to you, it comes from the Divine. When you are drawn to a certain medium, music, expression or activity that gets you in the flow… go with it, it is doing you so much more good than you can even imagine!

If you don’t know where to start, start outside. Get into the forest, go to the beach, spend time in the garden. Breathe in the fresh air and let it revitalize you, body, mind and spirit. Ask for inspiration, ask for creativity to come. And follow the guidance when it comes.

Namaste

Inspiration

Published May 24, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Inspiration, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Inspiration, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Inspiration: “An idea has captured your attention – or will do so very soon. It may be a grand vision or the vague sense of something that could be. You are being encouraged to accept the vision, the idea or the inspiration as it is important to your creative and spiritual growth.

Also, it IS possible. The bee is bringing you healing medicine-wisdom from nature to aid the message of the oracle of Inspiration. The bee is a powerful spirit totem. Bees are able to fly with wings that are significantly small in proportion to their heavier bodies. They can do so because of the sheer speed with which their wings move. Your idea, even if it seems  like a big, substantial plan that might be difficult to ‘get off the ground’ and up and running, can succeed. You will attract great helpers to you and the Earth will support the success of this project, idea or vision, because it is about helping the greater good, as well as your own growth and development. When the Earth Mother lends you nature-wisdom to support your healing and growth, you know you have an exceptionally powerful ally to your cause. Let this bring you confidence.

Allow inspiration to fill you with enthusiasm, an expectation of magic and marvelous synchronicity, as people, situations and opportunities fall into place to help bring your inspiration into reality. This idea has the potential to flower into so much more than you realize. It has great potential. It can become something that feeds and nourishes others on their creative and personal healing paths too. It has the quality of a mission and is so much more than one, singular idea.

When an inspiration comes from the greater creative intelligence of the universe – even when it makes itself known as an idea coming through a human source – all that is needed to bring it into being will be available at the right time. For the human channel of the idea, it is just a matter of being open, receptive, trusting and enthusiastic about what has come through. Everything required for each step will be naturally attracted to support the success of the project according to divine timing. The healing process below will help you to manifest the support needed for your inspiration to take flight.

This oracle also comes with the message that  you are a vehicle for inspiration. You are mean to think and do things differently. You are capable of receiving fresh ideas that are not so ‘out there’ or different that they stop being practical, helpful and wonderful. You are being asked to avoid the trap of doubting your ideas are special or interesting enough. Your inspiration comes direct from the universal creative source and you are being asked to believe and recognize the signature of great intelligence within your inspirations ideas and creative urges – and to act accordingly. To sum up, this card indicates that sweet success, like abundant honey, is coming your way through your commitment to and development of any idea that you have already had or will soon receive. See it through to the end. Bee-lieve!”

Healing Process: “Place your hands in prayer position at your heart or lay them in your lap with palms facing upwards in a gesture of receiving. Say aloud, ‘May my inspired idea be blessed by the creative intelligence and love of this universe. May the perfection of divine timing govern the unfolding of this idea into its most beautiful and fulfilling form. May this idea attract the most nourishing people, situations and opportunities so that is may live out its destiny to make a positive contribution to the world. Through sacred genius, love and grace, so be it.’

When you are ready, sit quietly and say, ‘I commit myself – body, heart, mind and soul – to that which will illuminate me with golden inspiration and uplift me and those around me with love. I am open to receive all the support and protection needed to truly honour this commitment. So be it.’

Rest for a moment to complete your healing process. If you notice imagery of bees, actual bees or people dressed like them (stranger things have happened!) when you are out and about, know that this is the Universe playfully confirming your healing through this oracle.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Ok first off, I started to write this post and had to leave to go pick up my kids from school so I saved it and left. When we got back home from the bus stop, we were all getting out of the car and looked down to find a bee, walking on the edge of the seat my son had just hopped out of. It literally just materialized there, kind of stunned and tired looking. We very gently and carefully placed it on the nearest bush so it could recover. Thank you Bee, for your little message, if I had not quite literally just been typing only minutes before about noticing actual bees, it may not have had such meaning to me. Now that you are aware too, keep your eyes open, I imagine many readers will have similar experiences, please share if you do!

I think what struck me most about his message is the idea of being enthusiastic and inspired. I realized that at best, most of the time, I am cautiously optimistic, not full out enthusiastic. It’s like you want something but you are almost afraid to reach for it in case someone pulls it out from under you right at the last moment. That hesitation is killer. That is the little crack that lets the fear in, the doubt. And all of a sudden you go from inspired to talking yourself right back out of it all.

So no more of that lukewarm stuff right? It’s time to go all in and see what the Universe has to offer.

Be like the bee and fly a little faster. Believe in yourself no matter what your current situation looks like. Know that this, reading this right here and right now, is your sign. Move forward fearlessly. Chase your dreams. Give of yourself; your heart and soul; your Love. Dare to create something amazing.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
