Lady De Los Muertos: “Acceptance and equality”

“Pale, you step out of the night
In red lace,
full flowers upon your crown
You bring the beauty to death
The equality and joy
of the underground.”

“The iconic lady of death, with a pale skull-like face, zombie eyes and rich red funeral flowers in her hair has become one of the most recognizable symbols of Halloween and the Mexican Day of the Dead, El Dia de los Muertos.

The original model for this flamboyant lady of death can be traced back to the ancient Aztec goddess Mictecacihuatl. As time went on, the figure remained balanced between beauty and horror, and morphed into the Lady of the Dead and eventually reported that the identity of the original ‘Catrina’ was  based on this life. Yet, death takes everyone, equally, so it was a reminder that no matter how beautiful, rich, popular or famous you were – in the end, death takes all.

The Mexican culture has a long standing history of ‘laughing at death’ and seeing it as just another aspect of life. In some ways, death is the last taboo in many western cultures. We tend to hide away our dying and some of us may never even see the body of someone who has passed in our whole lives, but this was a much more common occurrence in the past.

Acknowledging that death is a natural process that will enter everyone’s life at some time and that perhaps until then, we can choose to be life affirming takes away much of the fear. Take a light approach to a situation initially and it may work out better. If you are holding on to something that does not serve you any longer – in particular material things – simplify and let it go.”

Halloween day, the day of the thinning of the veils, when the distance between the dimensions is merely a breath away. This day is magical, it is a great day to practice with your extra sensory perceptions… your Clair or clear senses. Clariaudience is clear hearing; the ability to hear or perceive words or sounds coming from other dimensions such as the angelic realms or spiritual planes. Clairsentience is clear feeling, or clear sensing; this is a big one for the empath’s of the world, who can often ‘read’ the energy of another person, place or object and the energies surrounding it, past, present and future. Clairvoyance is clear seeing; visions of the past, present or future without having participated in the event, necessarily knowing the people involved or having any prior knowledge of a person or place. Claircognizance is clear knowing; knowing something without any particular reason, the knowledge coming directly to the person. This can be the most confusing of the ‘Clairs’ as it is one that can be second guessed or doubted if the person is not aware of the gift… or often even if they have awareness. This is one that requires great faith in following intuitive guidance. There’s even Clairgustance, which is the ability to have a taste come to the person psychically. Lastly is Clairolfaction, which I have experienced many times myself, the ability to sense a distinct scent or odor, often thought to be connected to past over loved ones, ascended master, guides or angels.

Take some time to meditate today, asking for any signs, symbols or messages that may come through to you. Set the intention to connect with loving, benevolent beings of unconditional love and Christ Consciousness. Open to messages from passed over loved ones, spirit animals, guides, angels and the ascended masters who are currently working with you. Ask for answers, solutions and broader perspectives to challenges you have been experiencing. Set up your altar, light a candle, place a crystal, light some incense and place some flowers for an offering. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and open your heart. Let the wisdom flow to you and through you. Let yourself be guided into the next chapter of this year.

Namaste

Nephthys: “The High Priestess ~ Intuition ~ Mystery”

“Nephthys is the hidden or veiled one who serves as a medium between the worlds. She comes to us in dreams, flashes of intuition, and visions. Along with Isis and Nekhbet-Mother-Mut, Nephthys is an aspect of the Triple Goddess. She relies upon spirit to direct her in all things and she holds the mystery teachings of life, death, and rebirth deep within her essence.

The mother of Anubis, Nephthys is also the true Virgin, or the woman unto herself, in her manifestation as the High Priestess. In our shamanic visionary experience, she inspires the seeker as she whispers her secrets into the wind and dances exotically under the starry sky with magnificent serpents winding around her beautiful bronze arms.

Although she is less renowned than her twin sister, Isis, they are seen together on the walls of the temples and at either end of every sarcophagus in ancient Egypt. When Osiris’s body was scattered throughout Egypt, it was Nephthys and Anubis who helped Isis find and gather the parts to make him whole again.

When Nephthys appears, she is working with your third eye and your sense of intuition, which will guide you further into the mysteries and to that which is hidden in your subconscious mind. She helps you to see in the dark. If you have drawn this card, be especially attentive or watchful for synchronicities. (What you may normally think of as a coincidence is actually the universe trying to gain your attention.) Pay attention to those sudden “hits” of inner knowing and guidance, and watch for those outer events or experiences that form synchronistic parallels to the inner messages you are receiving.

When you give yourself to the magic of Nephthys, she does not stop at opening your mind’s eye; she also opens your heart. Allow your entire being to thrive as you begin to see things in a new way.”*

A very auspicious way to start off your Spiritual Quest… with the guidance and assistance of Nephthys. She will prepare you, body, mind and spirit for the journey you are about to embark on. She will activate your Third Eye chakra, she will open your Heart and your Higher Heart Chakras. She will heal you as she opens you up to the mysteries of the Universe. She will bring you people and opportunities that will assist you on your way.

There are no coincidences, know that any and all synchronicity in your life right now is no mistake. Nephthys is drawing you forward. She is helping you to remember why you came here, and who you really are.

Meditate on that

Namaste

Fire And Ice

Fire And Ice: “You are learning to hold the tension of opposites – of those things that do not immediately seem to go together – within your being, without collapsing into confusion, judgment or denial. There is passion and serenity, creation and destruction, new life and death  emerging within you, within your relationships. Sometimes this is hard to handle! We want to make things simpler, to just let go of the conflict and complexity and choose one or the other. You are a grand enough soul to be able to withstand the rigors of depth. To go deep, to live fully, to let the Divine have its way through you requires a willingness to stand a the centre of the pairs of opposites, and eventually know that they are connected to each other, that they exist only in relationship to each other, to breathe and simply be.

If you are consciously feeling the conflict in your life – internally or externally – then you are being initiated through fire and ice. Stay present, be patient and wait. There is nothing to fix here, just awareness to step into as divine creation continues to unfold through you. As you master this initiation, you will find a sweet nectar of bliss dripping within.

This oracle brings you guidance that the conflict you feel within or externally is a sign of your spiritual growth. Soon you will grow larger than the conflict, but for now, you do not need to engage in it, simply to be present to it and allow it to work its way through you, until you are strong enough to have outgrown the conflict, giving rise to a clear direction. It may seem impossible beloved, but it is not. You are a vast being. Give yourself a chance to realize this and have patience. All is becoming, including you, according to the perfection of divine design. This oracle brings specific guidance on any relationship matter requiring a decision – until you have simple clarity in your heart, beyond the pushing away and pulling closer, then it is time to wait, for there is more yet to be revealed. Only when your heart speaks clearly, then you will do well to act as feels truthful for you.

There is a beautiful silence now

As I hold your hands

And listen to your eyes

Across a span of moments called time

There are no words that say as much

Nor walls that could confine

The wings of our feelings

Or the rhythm of our eyes.”*

It’s all about balance, and you may feel as if you have been walking a tight rope lately. Or you may feel as if you have been the rope in a tug of war! Head going one way, heart going the other. Which way to go? How to balance the opposing forces? How to fit it all in; how to keep the boat steady; how to maintain balance within the chaos?

The answer right now is simple… find your peace, find your center. Whatever may be going on around you, now is not the time for reactions, now is a time for harmony from within. As big as challenges may seem, as hard as decisions may feel to make, finding your inner peace is the strongest tool you can have. This is what will heal you now. Like finding your breath in the middle of an extremely challenging yoga pose, or finding your voice amid the crowd.

Finding your stillness within the storm will bring you clarity.

And your decision will become crystal clear.

But for now, breathe…

Namaste
