“Not so quickly, says our hero! I have taken this dream and creative passion through inception, materialization, opposition, and battle. Although I a wounded, I stand strong in my commitment and determination.

Our Starseed Warrior stands in front of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which has withstood the winds of time for thousands upon thousands of years. He is wounded but still strong, and his flames surround him, just as an army stand behind its general. He is clearly a figure of the undefeatable force of conviction, standing for his truth and the right to express it.

Standing strong in the light of his conviction, he represents our own commitment to a cause and our courage to stand for it. This particular key is one with which the Starseed warrior must contend – for we are here to stand for this great Earth and our belief in her sovereignty, no matter what we will come up against. Like the major arcana key, Reflection, this key asks the querent to consider and reflect upon all that has taken the querent to this point until now.

Are you prepared to stand tall for what you believe in – no mater what is thrown at you? Are you a symbol of truth and valor to others? Can you rally the troops in support of your ideas and goals? Are you fearless in the light of obstruction and opposition? Do you really know your strength?”*

Again we are reminded of our great power to change our current reality. We are spiritual warriors, and we have many causes to tend to. Yet we can become stretched too thin if we try to take them all up at once. Our energies can become scattered and we will have trouble finishing even one of our tasks. It is sensible to choose one cause and see it through to the end.

This is the perfect time of year to give back; rather than just mindlessly give. Step back from consumerism and look at what gifts you truly have to offer the world. Who needs your help? Who needs your time? Have you carved out a little time to yourself to recover from all the energies of 2016 and start to set your intentions for the next year?

Our warrior is looking a little beaten up, particularly around the head… his third eye is covered up and he has been wounded. What hurts did you suffer this year? Did you have trouble listening to your intuition and end up regretting it later? And how are you working on healing them in a mindful and healthy way? Work on your healing and intend that when you remove the proverbial bandage, your third eye will be more powerful than ever. Never again will you turn away from your own truth.

2016 is our year of completion. It is time to wrap up the loose ends. It is time to let go of old ways of doing things, seeing things and believing things. Our limitations are being lifted, barriers smashed. Yes it has been a challenging year, but now you have the chance to finish it differently than is your typical way. How would that look?

See, it all ties in together. We are powerful. The world needs us. Things much change in order to move forward. Release the old. Embrace the new. Give of your gifts instead of the material. Be the warrior, yet allow yourself to heal and move forward fearlessly, flames of passion in hand.

You’ve got this!

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

Dark Moon

Published April 25, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Dark Moon, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle, by Lucy Cavendish

Dark Moon, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle, by Lucy Cavendish

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dark Moon, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle, by Lucy Cavendish

Dark Moon: “Maturation, Growing up, Introspection, Know thyself”

“This faery being seems shrouded in deep contemplation. Crooked in the cradle of a darkening moon form the northern hemisphere perspective, a dark air of regret swirls about her. This sad being represents the darkening – the time when we self-assess – and like her, grapple with understanding our response to a real test. She feels withdrawn, very young, very child-like, raw and untried. This is no failure of hers – she is facing the sadness that can lie within, asking the difficult questions. On her head curl the horns of the ram, showing she is a fiery being, one who has been brave and headstrong, and who for a time has stepped back to unfamiliar territory – that of the questioning of self. She is one of the few of her kind left, and her dilemma is that of feeling isolated and winnowed out, and of being treated unjustly. She faces a quiet kind of extinction, and knows that whatever she chooses to do now will determine her fate. And so she takes this time to ponder, and to sit, and to understand before acting. She is both masculine and feminine, her horns indicating many years of being on the earth, as they are mature, thick and heavily curling. She has survived on little over the years, and asked only to keep going. But now it seems she faces a real threat, and must take steps to not only survive herself, but to ensure that those like her continue on. From this dark time of deep contemplation, she will emerge and come out again into the world with strength, determination and knowledge. She will flourish again – but for now, it is the time of the dark night of the soul; and it is necessary and good, for of it wisdom will be born, and her kind will live wild and free once again.”

Divinatory Meaning: “Interestingly, this can be interpreted as a menopausal card for women, or one of seeming “bad news” bringing about change, as their moon times move to darkening. It is a time for understanding the frailties of the self and understanding the wisdom your years on this earth have taught  you. Knowing that there is “nothing” that can be done at this time. Knowing that you need to understand where you are responsible for the current situation. Learning and taking ownership of responsibility will create freedom and new opportunities. Move through this and feel renewed, alive and as though your own personal evolution is finally, finally underway. It will never be too late. The tests and the subsequent wisdom make this life here so worthwhile and will create your beautiful legacy for generations to come. You will rise up from this, as the phoenix is reborn from the ashes, just as the moon will wax and grow full once again. Have hope, but do spend time in contemplation.”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

We must experience a death before we can experience a rebirth. Sometimes, we deny ourselves the natural cycles of our lives, feeling that we must cling on to the old, instead of embracing the new. This is so very true in the aging process, particularly in our current society. Both women and men are clinging on for dear life to youth, through plastic surgery, extreme diet and exercise programs, and finding much younger “trophy” spouses. They are denying their life experience in trade for a younger appeal. Growth is denied. Can you imagine this in the natural world? Dogs refusing to get past the puppy stage? Trees trying to stay sapplings? Frogs trying to appear as tadpoles for just a little longer? Seems pretty silly and unnecessary when you look at it that way doesn’t it?

Embrace your deep wisdom; your life experience. Share it with the world. It is part of your gift, and when you step into this aspect, your light will shine more brightly than ever. This is part of self love and acceptance. It’s about loving every phase of this amazing physical body… yup, the meat suit! That got you through this life, no matter how “flawed” you perceive it to be!

We know we are more than this body. We know that we are eternal Souls, experiencing the physical plane. We are here for a much higher purpose; to help in the ascension of Gaia! News flash: It doesn’t matter what you look like when your are comfortable in your true Soul self, walking your path, following your Soul purpose.

Isn’t that a huge relief? That you can let all that other stuff go?

We can fly. At any age. With any body.

We just have to decide that we can.

Know what you want. And go get it.

You are so lovable and worthy; you are exactly your perfect Divine Self.

Namaste

Dancer Of Promise

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dancer Of Promise, from The Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Dancer Of Promise: “I am the Dancer Of Promise. I hold out my hands to catch the waves of delight and power that wash over me, and bestow them on anyone who seeks my help. I will fill you with the light of the morning, enlivening you with joyful anticipation of triumph and hope of what is to be. In my dance is the bright movement of fire, the sharp dash of water, the slow wonder of earth and the swift passage of air. I lead the way to the realization of dreams and the fulfillment of desires.”

“Promise gives us something to look forward to, offering a gleam of hope when all is dark or dead. As we move thought life there are moments when we cannot find the way forward: we can see neither good nor bad ahead. Yet with this help we are projected fleetingly into the future and see there the possibilities we may catch when the moment arrives. The Dancer Of Promise makes a vow to us: to shine a light on the opportunities that lie on our path. In turn we must make our own promise to embrace the chances that life offers us, and endeavour to live up to this undertaking.”

Interpretations For This Card: “Looking forward, Determination, The Gift of Opportunity, A Glimpse of the Future, Activity, Dreaming, A Contract with the Self and with Others, Potentialities.”*

~ by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Again we are reminded that Divine Timing is at work in our lives, that even if we feel that we are not currently moving forward, and that things may appear to be at a standstill, here is still much hope. The Dancer Of Promise brings us a message of confirmation that we are, in fact, on the right track and that things are despite any present appearances, going exactly as planned. It is a call to celebrate that which is in the process of manifestation. It is a reminder to acknowledge that as we raise our vibration to meet our dreams, we become a magnet for them in the physical plane.

The Dancer Of Promise encourages us to maintain a positive attitude; a lightness of being. It is about joyful anticipation and fulfillment; promise of a bright future full of opportunity and Light. It is about hope and faith, and knowing that we are supported. It is about dancing through any challenges that may present themselves with brand new ideas and inspirations and realizing that the challenges were much smaller than they originally appeared. It is also about not ever giving up on our dreams, listening to our hearts and staying strong, even when we are having fun or relaxing, there is no need to make ourselves small, aim for the stars.

And while you are waiting? Dance. Sing. Celebrate. Brings those miracles in a little faster and keeps you happy while you wait!

Namaste

Faery Stallion

Faery Stallion, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Faery Stallion, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Faery Stallion: “Dark hair and white mane fly wildly in the wind as they cut together through the warm air. Over open fields and through the forest, they move smoothly as one, a perfect picture of graceful speed. Their elegant movement belies their efforts. Blood pulsing through their veins, the breath coursing in and out of their lungs fuels their movements. Muscles contract and release. She, overcome with joyful energy, reaches up as if to touch the sun, holding the silky blue reins only lightly.

They have run like this many times to achieve this beautiful skill and abandon. They know each others movement sand can anticipate one another’s actions, tethered together by a wisp of fabric. But more than reins and experience connect them. Their favored shade of blue, the colour of peace and healing, honours that inexplicable binding that is as invisible to onlookers as their muscles, their breath, and their blood. They are connected by spirit and unified in will. Of one mind and one purpose, they know where they are headed and know the best (which may not always be the shortest) route go get there. Getting there is not the goal. The ride is everything, and they ride so very well together.”

Divinatory Meaning: “Traditionally known as the Chariot, card VII of the Major Arcana marks a certain level of achievement and independence. In this card, the stallion, like the chariot in other cards, is a metaphor for your own power and determination. The ability to ride so apparently effortlessly bespeaks control and skill. More importantly, is also marks a confidence that comes of certainly. If cards I through VI illustrate early life lessons and preparation, the Stallion tells you that it is time to move. You have considered the options, made the plans, and finalized decisions. Now go forward. It is time to grab the brass ring. This card reminds you to head in the right direction, but more importantly, to enjoy the ride.”*

~by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

This card is infused with the freedom you have so long desired, are you ready to take the reins? Whatever has held you back in the past, fears, doubts or insecurities… challenges or perceived obstacles…. They have all been removed. The way ahead is clear. The future is bright and full of potential; the Light of Love is leading you on.

How long has it been since you allowed yourself to fly free? To sing, to dance, to play? To move with confidence and an air of abandon? It is time to let go of fears around judgement, acceptance and approval and step courageously into being your full authentic self. And there is a very important opportunity headed your way!

Should you choose to accept this mission, you will find yourself transformed in ways you never thought possible. You will realize dreams that seemed at one point mere fantasies. You will be surrounded by love and support. You will find your tribe of like-minded people. The Universe will open wide and surround you with endless possibility.

All you need to do is connect with that amazing, wild, beautiful and wise Soul that is You. No more playing small.

The rest will all fall into place with grace and ease.

And some excitement of course!

Namaste

Spirit Of Truth

 Spirit Of Truth, from the Shaman's Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Spirit Of Truth, from the Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit Of Truth, from the Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Spirit Of Truth: “I am the Spirit Of Truth, the foundation upon which all things are built. I open the way to understanding to an acceptance of the reality of things as they are. I strip away the veils of self deception and walk the straight path of honour. I do not turn away from truth, however harsh it may seem; and my steps are always fueled with purpose and a determination to penetrate to the heart of any matter.”

Spirit Of Truth

In a primitive world of fundamental instincts and elemental risks, there was little room for subterfuge. To survive was to live by timeless truths of body and spirit. In today’s world, truth is one of the benchmarks by which we judge ourselves – and is a necessary ingredient in the evolution of civilized values. The Spirit Of Truth ennobles us in an aura of integrity. As we walk our chosen path, it helps us to measure our progress accurately, usefully punctures our self delusions, and gives us a truer understanding of anyone en route who might offer us false security or seductive rewards.

Interpretations: Facing the future with open eyes. Responding to challenges with honesty and truth. Belief in the truthfulness of others. Seeing beyond illusion. Clear sightedness.”*

~by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Why do we lie to ourselves? Because we think that it saves us from experiencing pain; yet all it does it put the pain off until later as we must experience it at some point, particularly if it becomes a block in our energy, stored in the physical body. We can be such optimists! No matter how dire the circumstances, no matter how miserable we are, no matter how stagnant and stuck and mired in the muck of the mundane… We can convince ourselves that things are going to get better…. even if we do nothing to change them. And sometimes this is true, miracles do happen. But isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Refusing to make even the smallest change to shake things up because we are afraid to rock the boat?

So we lie to ourselves instead. We tell ourselves that we are in love. We tell ourselves that we are happy with our jobs. We tell ourselves that we are fine the way we are. Which would all be fantastic… if that is how we actually felt deep down inside. But unfortunately, that is not exactly how the Law Of Attraction works! It goes on those deep feelings, the ones that feel strangled deep beneath. The ones that urge us to make a change. The ones that tell us that everything will be OK if we just take the leap of faith. But so often we don’t… as we stand at the threshold and wait for someone to save us; someone to give us permission; someone to open the door for us. And we wait. And we tell ourselves that it’s OK; that we really don’t deserve more than this anyway.

I am the Spirit Of Truth. Here to tell you, Dear Ones, that if you open the door, I will show you the truth of your Soul. I will lead you back to your Light. I will lift the veil of the Deep Forget and show you what you are truly capable of. But you must want to change. You must want to remember.

When you want to remember, call on me. I will be waiting.

We will take the first step towards truth together.

Namaste

Breakthrough

Breakthrough, from the Osho Zen Tarot Card deck, by Osho

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Breakthrough, from the Osho Zen Tarot Card deck, by Osho

Breakthrough: “The predominance of red in this card indicates a glance that its subject is energy, power, and strength. The brilliant glow emanates from the solar plexus, or center of power on the figure, and the posture is one of exuberance and determination.

All of us occasionally reach a point when “enough is enough.” At such times it seems we must do something, anything, even it it later turns out to be a mistake, to throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us. If we do not, they threaten to suffocate us and cripple our very life energy itself.

If you are now feeling that “enough is enough,” allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing. In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and empowerment this Breakthrough can bring into your life.

To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master. The psychotherapist simply patches you up. That is his function. He is not there to transform you. You need metapsychology, the psychology of the Buddhas.

It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough. It does become, but these things cannot be guaranteed. Your chaos is very ancient – for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself. So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course there is danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible.

Zen, or meditation is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert. The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will be come darker.”*

– Osho

We all have moments where we entertain change, then turn a blind eye to these desires and doggedly return to the routine. We have moments of lucidity, where we suddenly rise above the chaos, and can see the broader picture, the truth. Like swimming up to the surface and breaking through, breathing in the fresh, clean air and feeling the sun on our faces… then being dragged back down into the muck by our ever present fear.

We have come too far to back down now, and it’s time to slay the dragon. Believe that you can do this, and move forward fearlessly, knowing that there really is no backwards… not any longer. Yes, it may seem dark and scary, but have you “let your eyes adjust?” maybe, just maybe, it is all a matter of perspective. Maybe once your eyes adjust to the dark, you will see that the monster is not nearly as large as he seemed, that your sword is much larger than you realized, and that you don’t even need the armor you have been dragging along for so long.

Victory is yours, but you must walk forward, one step at a time, into and through your fear, knowing that there is only light on the other side.

Or, you could just bust straight through it… your choice.

Namaste
