Seven Of Chalices: “There are many opportunities or choices open to a person with this card, but not all of them are what they seem, and other people may try to influence the decision one makes. The caution is against the tendency to daydream, rely on others for direction in life, or wish for things without expending the effort to bring them to fruition. One needs to learn more about the choices offered, ad pick the one that pulls. Of all the options, only one is right for the chooser, and the others are delusions. To be happy with the decision made, one must listen to the intuition and heart as well as the intellect. Here is a chance to do what will make one happy, and this may require standing up to others who wish to push their own choices, based on their personal perceptions and values. To find the true path to reaching a desired goal, one must evaluate the alternatives, look past the obstacles and distractions, and avoid following the whims or uncertain promptings of others.

Solomon’s seal (drop berry), an herb of decisions, wisdom, and success, grows beside the stand. A butterfly, a symbol of opportunities, confidence, and manifestation, flutters over one chalice.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Many choices, opportunities, careful decisions, deliberations, willpower to achieve goals, time to follow one’s true desire.”

Seven Of Chalices as Challenger: “Daydreams, delusion, self-deception, confusion, hesitancy, false promises, improbably ideas, whims.”

Prompt Words: “Opportunities, choose carefully.”*

This message is about discernment. It is about knowing your own heart and what you truly desire. It is about tuning in to your intuition and taking the time to really listen. It is about not making hasty decisions and not being pushed into anything by anyone else, no matter what their motives may be.

There are so many distractions! So many things that can set us off track in a day. Succumb to even one or two and they could steer you right off course if you are not careful. Get steered off course enough and you just might lose your way.

This is not a message about fear, it is a message about trust. It is about mindfulness, about deliberation and about resourcefulness. You know what you need to do. You can feel your way around the opportunities on offer. Bells and whistles will not lead you astray. There is success here, prosperity. Possibility. It will be as big as you allow it to be.

Take some time to yourself and breathe into  your options. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut! If someone does not feel authentic, honest or true, trust that too. Do not see only the good in someone, be realistic… when we choose only to see the potential, sometimes we miss the reality of the situation. What does your body say? Does it feel light or heavy? Where do you feel it and why would that be?

Now is a time to really trust in yourself and know that when you say “no” and close one door, another is sure to open. We so often fear that the option before us is the only one… the “what if’s” set in… we doubt ourselves. We fear abandonment, rejection… we settle, compromise our dreams.

This is different. This is big. No pressure, but you need to make the decision that takes you where you need to be. Yes, it might be scary. And no, not everyone will be on board. But you have to trust that you can find your own way.

Namaste

Priorities

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

Priorities: “Make the most of your time”

“Every day is a gift. You have the option to make the most of what life is offering you. If you long to create organization in your life, you will benefit from prioritizing. Your ideals determine what you will seek in life. Your priorities are most visible in how you use your time. Ganesha is holding the water lily and emphasizing the importance of  your values. He encourages you to know what you truly want. What makes you happiest? There are always blessings that may not be apparent in the midst of a disappointment.

Time is not something that can be saved for later. When it comes to the time allotted to you each day, you only have a limited opportunity. Make your choices about how you spend your time in accordance with your highest values. If you languish or procrastinate, the moment will be gone. Re-evaluate how you have been spending your days and how you can strive to be more satisfied.

In terms of priorities, for each major decision such as education, occupation, place of residence, marriage or parenting, you may ask yourself, ‘What will be the impact of my decision?’ In all choices, make sure that you are certain of what your priorities are. Relate your goals to ways to bring love and blessings to yourself and the people who you share your life with.”

~ By Angela Hartfield

How are you spending your precious time on this amazing planet of ours? Are you using it to focus on what you love to do? Or are you using it to worry about the current state of the world. It’s so easy to get caught up in the drama, the hurt and the pain of the world around us. The news seems to be getting ever worse and worse. Sometimes it’s so bad it actually seems like it just cannot be real, things just can’t be going the way they are going. There are so many things to worry about on a global basis, never mind our own problems that we deal with daily.

So how do we offset this and bring balance and harmony back into our lives? How do we raise our vibration and find our joy while remaining grounded on the planet. And what else would be possible if we could detach from pain and trauma and create with love instead? This does not mean that we do not feel compassion. This does not mean that we are in denial or that we don’t feel loss or grief. What it means though, is that if everyone could truly experience life from the heart, and experience joy and peace within, maybe some of this stuff wouldn’t happen in the first place.

It starts with us. Each and every one of us. Finding ourselves in the chaos and loving what we find. Making ourselves a priority. Making loving connections a priority. Making spending time in nature a priority. Making anything that makes you smile and your heart sing a priority. Boldly claiming our joy without explanation, justification or guilt. For it is our birthright. And no matter what the outside circumstances, it will be found within.

And so it is

Namaste

Openness

Openness, from the Whispers of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Openness, from the Whispers of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Openness: “Observe, evaluate, and make inquiries before forming a conclusion.”

“When the moon is waning in the crescent phase, it is a good time to begin to review endeavors and correct mistakes. It is time to throw out what you no longer need and clear away excess and old energy including any clutter you may have accumulated. In addition to discarding excessive material things in your life, eliminate any unhealthy behaviours and relationships.

You may find that you are trying to decide between two options. This card is not about making a decision, but more about taking the time to really listen to your heart and your inner voice. Ganesha advises you to gain more information before you act. This knowledge can be in many forms including your innate knowledge, self-knowledge, secret knowledge or even more esoteric wisdom. You may find that what you are attaining might be both mysterious and magical.

You are in a conscious process of creative release. Give thanks and gratitude for the things that you have accomplished. Do not feel rushed or pressured to begin a new undertaking. Review your goals and regroup accordingly. Once you have all of the necessary information, you will begin to feel motivated to set some new goals and start new projects.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Sometimes it’s difficult to be open if you have been hurt before. Maybe you feel too vulnerable, maybe you feel too wide open and unable to protect yourself. Maybe it scares you a little, or a lot. I get it, I feel the same way! I’ve been through a lot and sometimes that stuff comes back to haunt you. It gets hard to trust people, even those who you want to open yourself to. It feels so scary, like you are putting yourself out there and anything could happen… you could get hurt again….

But what if you didn’t get hurt again, but you didn’t know it because you didn’t open up to the possibility that things could be different this time? What if you kept your heart closely guarded? What if no one could get past that fortress that you have created? And what if you missed out on something amazing because of it?

You have a decision to make, and it may not be an easy one. Open up or stay shut down. Awaken or stay asleep. Move forward fearlessly or stay stuck?

Only you can decide. To trust. To love. To open up. To receive. To allow.

To no longer be lead by fear. To trust that the Universe has something better in mind for you. That you are supported and accepted and loved.

Yes, it is your responsibility to watch for red flags, this is not a blindly diving into something unhealthy. It is merely opening up and giving it a chance.

Namaste

Our Lady Of Sacred Union

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Sacred Union, from the Mother Mary Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

“There is a conflict occurring within you, and perhaps you see this reflected in your world. There are warring opposites trying to find a way to be together in peace. It is not because you are doing something wrong. It is because you are doing something right! You are growing. I will keep you safe. I will ensure you find the way by which all can function in harmony. Trust me as I guide you into sacred union within yourself, and with the world around you. Do not give up, beloved. Harmony will find its way into your heart soon.”

“Sometimes choices need to be made between this way, or that. Sometimes this is healthy and essential for our growth. Yet there are other times when a choice of inclusion – choosing both this way and that – is the way through which we can best grow. A choice of inclusion allows us to learn how to bring apparently opposing forces together into harmony within us, and in our world.

This might be showing up a completely internal issue for you. Perhaps you are dealing with conflicting desires for a family and love relationship, and to feel safe and secure internally in that community. But at the same time you are longing for independence and freedom to explore and express yourself, and your creativity, in the world. Perhaps that inner struggle of coming together is far more subtle and difficult to pin down – a sense that you want to live your life lightly and with joy, but also that you really want to know, and be, who you are, to not hide yourself from yourself – or anyone else – even if that means expressing anger or sadness or fear. You might be trying to find a way to be both the mother and the lover, or the father and the friend. You might be trying to find a way to be the healer and the vulnerable one; who needs healing, love and support too, despite all your strength.

This might also be an issue that is reflected in your physical world. Perhaps you are trying to decide on relationship issues such as whether to proceed into marriage, or are wondering how to build a better relationship with yourself. Perhaps you are truing to bring your head and heart together so that your life feels aligned and moving in one direction, rather than feeling pulled apart by competing demands on your time and energy.

Our Lady Of Sacred Union shows up when we are working on finding a way through opposition and disharmony, and into integration and functional behaviour. Conflict can be an essential aspect of growth, like friction that creates sparks and fuels the fires of transformation. Our challenges can fire us up and give us the impetus we need to take action and be bold. Or sometimes they can wear us down and lead us into emotional fatigue and depression, particularly if we feel that the challenge has been continuing on for far too long without respite or relief. No matter whether we are on fire with a passion for finding a solution, or drained and exhausted and needing the tender nourishing grace of heaven to inspire us with the solution that we have not as yet been able to find, Our Lady is here to help.

She asks you not to worry about one choice or another, but to make space in your heart for a third option, another perspective, another way to be with this issue. She says that there is always another way to be, no matter how set in stone your situation or issue may appear to be. There is always another way, another perspective, another path through the issue into resolution. Allow her to bless you with her guiding hand now, as she shows you the other way through into harmony.”

Healing Process and Affirmation:

“You are standing with a beautiful, tall and powerful woman who is holding a golden scale.

On each side of the scale you see each of the pairs of opposites. It might be two choices that you are considering, two options in life, two ways to go, two relationships or career paths. Or it might not be that obvious to you what the choices are. It might be more a sense of not knowing exactly which way to go in your relationship or career, or how to proceed to heal a health or financial issue, for example.

Eventually your attention moves away from the two sides of the scale, and rests at the center of the scale where there is a white rose blooming, with a diamond in its center.

As you gaze at that rose and diamond, it spins, creating a field of light.

That light pierces into your mind and heart.

It cleanses and opens your mind and heart to new possibilities, a transcendent choice. You do not have to understand it, just allow it, with trust.

When you are ready say the following healing affirmation three times, aloud if possible, or repeat it quietly in your mind if need be.

“The Lady of Unconditional Love, Our Lady Of Sacred Union, Mother Mary, reveals the transcendent choice, the third way, in the perfect time. She blesses me with understanding and brings the angels to assist me now. I celebrate her with thanks! Blessings to the Holy Mother!”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Being human is full of polarities: black and white, right and wrong, happy and sad, joyful and fearful, rich and poor, fat and thin, healthy and diseased… they go on and on and on. We start to use these as a way to measure ourselves against our circumstances, seeing them as this way or that way, with nothing in between. We don’t realize that when we are making the choice between two seemingly opposite decisions, we can end up with tunnel vision. Sometimes all we really need is to detach from the drama of the decision making and look at things from a new perspective.

Maybe it isn’t this or that… maybe it is all together something else, something much better that we haven’t even thought of. Maybe it isn’t this person or that one, but someone who has not yet walked into our lives. Maybe it is finding a way to include both aspects of the decision into one, that benefits All.

If you are sitting on the fence, maybe it is time to stand up and walk along it, tight rope style, until you reach the end. What does that look like, when you jump off? Maybe the grass really is greener on one side than the other, but when you get to the end of the fence there is a river there and you dive right into it and are swept away on a brand new journey.

Sometimes, when you don’t know what to do, it’s ok to do nothing at all until you fully realize your options. And maybe when you don’t know what to do, you ask too many other people and get  so many conflicting points of view that you confuse yourself further.

Trust in yourself. Give it a bit of time. Contemplate getting out of your comfort zone. Let the options come to you. Breathe each one in and weight it carefully.

Only you know which direction to move in. And don’t worry, you really can’t go wrong… it’s all part of your journey.

Namaste

Be Candid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Be Candid, From the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, Artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Be Candid: “It is essential to express your truth even at the risk of standing out.”

“The situation at hand is asking you to express your thoughts. In the past, you have tried to maintain peace by staying quiet or swallowing your words. Have faith that open and honest communication can bring resolution to the situation. If you are not sure where you stand; ask. since this card is about communication, it may indicate someone’s words have created a moment of clarity. Be willing to communicate your concerns clearly. Remember to be open to others’ point of view or arguments. Let your emotions flow without trying to block them while looking at decisions and solutions.

Ganesha prompts you to be wary of coming across as rough or uncaring when you communicate your concerns and ideas to others. Before you express yourself, take a deep breath and think of what you are going to say. Convey your thoughts in an understandable, brief and well thought out manner.

Teal represents the throat chakra, which represents both speaking and listening. The throat chakra is the gateway for the higher spiritual realms. When your throat chakra is activated and balanced, there is a diminished chance of miscommunication and misunderstandings. You are able to express yourself as a spiritual being. You are a good communicator, speaking honestly and from the heart, as well as being a good listener. You are able to ask for what you want and need from others. You are able to express yourself individually and creatively. Your relationships are based on truthful communication and true intimacy. This card invites you to create emotional balance and stability in your life.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Again we are met with the Truth. The importance of being candid, honest, of not staying quiet, not stuffing our truth. This will become part of the collective consciousness, this need for Truth, it is part of the Great Awakening. We will find our Truth and stand together. We will not back down.

Our Great Mother Gaia needs us to stand in the Truth for her, and we need to do it for ourselves too. It will quite literally divide us. It will become a matter of Life and Death, of ascension and of staying in the third dimensional consciousness. The Truth will remove the veils. The Truth will give us the strength to stand peacefully yet powerfully for what we believe in. We must embrace it, not cower from it. We must demand it as we freely give of it. There is simply no other way.

Ganesha is the breaker of obstacles. He is here to assist us to discard anything that is not in our absolute Truth and bring us back to pure authenticity. It may mean getting uncomfortable for a while, until all the Truth comes out. But then, it will be so transformational, we will wonder why we did not embrace the Truth sooner.

Namaste

Fresh Approach

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fresh Approach, from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Card deck by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall

Fresh Approach: “Time to step out of the box and an old way of doing things. You are being challenged to try something new. Look at how to crate magic in your world. Create with the intention of filling your life with joy and happiness. Achieve your desires while experimenting with new activities. You always have options. Do not feel limited. Even when you are not in motion, you are making a choice. You are being prodded to make a decision right now. Do not worry about not making the right one. Every mistake brings us lessons and opportunities. The amount you can learn is immeasurable. Base your choice on love and the best option for you ow. Imagine that “failing” is not a part of any of your choices. What will you choose?”*

~by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall

We are being called to get out of our comfort zones and create. See this as an invitation to enjoy a time of joy and magic, think… FUN!

Fun is the fastest way to raise your vibration and one of the most overlooked ways too! We think that we need hours of meditation and a perfect, spiritual lifestyle in order to reach enlightenment, but what if the portal to the higher realms of consciousness is actually through laughter, joy, happiness and play. In short, it is finding your passion… of course! And we do know this on a deeper level, but unfortunately, we also live in a society where we are lead to believe that the only way to “get ahead” is by “working hard” and that if we are wasting time that we could be making money or being somehow productive on having fun, then we are frivolous. Unless you are in a beer or gum commercial, then it all sex, all day long!! It can get pretty confusing!

The Universe wants us to know that there are limitless options open to us, literally every moment of our lives. It is all up to us to choose them. Breathe that in for a moment. We are the ones who stick to routine, to what feels safe and secure. We don’t break the rules, we don’t take risks, we don’t get out there and do something we have never done for fear of failure….

But that is all about to change! This is our chance to bust through all the old barriers and try something new. Make a bucket list and check off one new thing a week, or a month! Accept an invitation to try something new with a friend. Drop in to a class at the new yoga studio around the corner. Take an adult art class. Learn to play a musical instrument… or even better, join a choir and use your voice!

The best way to knock out some cobwebs in your life is to take a chance on something new. See yourself from a different perspective.

Expand your horizons.

Namaste

In Two Minds

In Two Minds, from the Heart Of Faery Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: In Two Minds, from the Heart Of Faery Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

In Two Minds: “Internal Dialogue ~ Decision ~ Action.”

“Should I? Shouldn’t I? I could do it this way, but then again I could to it that way. I could change things, but then again, I could just let things be the way they are. I could get up and do something, or I could sit here and think about it. Do I want Chinese food or Italian food? A walk in the park? Or another hour in front of the TV?

Decisions plague our lives. In Two Minds has never made a decision in his whole life, at least onto one that he has stuck with for more than a minute or tow. He can’t. He literally has two voice going on in his head at all times, and they never, ever agree. Do you recognize him? He may be living in your head even as you read this. If he is a familiar figure to you, then it is time to acknowledge him and remember that once you acknowledge him, his presence can be useful. By picking this card, you recognize the fact that although any argument has at least two sides, in the end you have to choose and make a decision. It may not end up being  the right one, but until you decide on some sort of action, you are as stuck as he is, forever arguing with yourself, forever in a static state.

Be brave. Do something. When you take that first step, you will find that the next one may be much clearer and more obvious than you could have imagined.”*

– Brian and Wendy Froud

We’ve all been there. Weighing our options. Carefully measuring out the pro’s and cons of a decision. Should I stay with my job that gives me security, benefits and regular hours? Or should I quit and become an entrepreneur? Should I stay in a relationship that doesn’t fit my needs because I’m scared that might not make enough money to support my kids, or because my family thinks I should or because my partner thinks I should? Or should I honour my heart, strike out on my own, and trust that, somehow, the Universe will provide.

It’s living the “What if’s?” over and over and over again in your head. What if I leave and it’s a mistake? What if I fail? What if everyone is angry at me for my decision? What if I regret making the change? Aren’t these all just distractions from the truth? Aren’t they your ego’s way of throwing up obstacles in the form of big blocks of fear? Are any of them actually true? And if they are true, could they not lead to the Universe redirecting you to where you are really meant to be?

How could your heart be wrong… especially if it has been speaking to you for some length of time now. This isn’t exactly new is it?

Take a deep breath and decide to decide… once and for all. Give yourself a timeline, a week, a month, six months, a year, whatever you need to get yourself prepared for this change in the best possible way. Knowing, of course, that if your faith is fully in the Universe and yourself, that you could make this decision right here and now as you are reading this! Create a plan of action. Ask Archangel Michael to banish In Two Minds from your head and give you the strength and courage to carry through with your dreams. Consistent action steps. Staying true to yourself.

Even if you are scared to death.

Trust in the Universe.

Trust in yourself.

Namaste
