Uilleand Honeysuckle:

Totems: “Lapwing, Peewit, Hummingbirds, Moths, Bees, The Labyrinth, DNA”
Deities/Guides: “Merlin, the Crone or Hermit, Archetype, Medicine Man or Woman”
Letters: “UI, PE, P”
Class: “Peasant”

Keywords: “Seeking, Hidden Secrets, The Lantern That Lights The Path, The Need To Protect Something Important, Soul, Discovery, Bringing Light To The Darkness, Hidden Treasure, Illumination, Clarity, Restoration, The Pot Of Gold At The End Of The Rainbow.”

“This Uilleand Honeysuckle represents hidden secrets that we are meant to discover. The winding ways of this vine represents the labyrinth and the pathway into the inner life. The hermit or ancient medicine woman holds the lantern for us as we make our way into ourselves. There is a store of great treasure and knowledge there for us to discover if we will but begin the journey. We are encouraged to heal that which has been denied or repressed. We are invited to proceed with caution and enlist our spiritual helpers, so they can help light the darkness and illuminate the path of enlightenment. The ogham for this plant is Uilleand and the letters are UI, P, and PE. It is represented by bones, which are formed by crossing the index and middle fingers of each hand.”

Uilleand Honeysuckle In A Reading: “Uilleand Honeysuckle in a reading has to do with the search for inner knowledge. This flowering vine helps us discern false from true and choose that which is worthwhile. This woodbine is an ally. It provides protection and reminds you to stay true to yourself. Although you may find many distractions as you travel your path, this vine symbolizes a focused journey into the self and the soul. It signifies your spiritual journey and encourages you to keep learning, expressing your true nature, and evolving.

Honeysuckle may also come to let you know it is time to shine the light for others, so that they, too, can look into the mysteries and discover the treasure of their inner lives. By offering encouragement and insight, you may bring light to others’ darkness and empower them to embark on their own inner journey.

Discovery is emphasized. Be willing to learn about and explore your own inner world. See yourself as an archaeologist, investigating the layers of your own inner world. There is much hidden treasure to find there. Although you may dig up hidden things that disturb you, you also bring light into the dark hidden places, and light brings the healing. You also reconnect with your own gifts and talents, and empower your own expression.

Remember that it is your environment that affects the DNA. Light and love encourage the healthy patterns within your genes to be activated. Learn to apply positive thoughts, feelings, and actions to old habits of negativity. Become responsible for creating an environment of joy and health.”

As Challenger: “Reversed, Honeysuckle indicates insecurity. This is a state of mind that must be addressed. True security has nothing to do with failure or success in the world, but with recognizing your true nature, which is already perfect and whole. If you are feeling ‘less than,’ it is time for prayer or inner renewal. If you feel burned out or lost, circle around again into yourself.

Take a class or seek a spiritual teacher, or choose books that remind you of who you truly are. If you have lost track of your inner life, it is time for inner reflection. If you are afraid to begin the journey of self-knowledge, work with a therapist, healer, or coach at the start. Turn the corner on old stories, habitual negative patterns, and unhealthy programming.”

Message: “I am the Uilleand Honeysuckle, and I offer you the lovely scent of my flowers. I attract beauty and offer sweet nectar for the hummingbirds and the bees. I am here to remind you of your own sweetness and your own ability to attract good things into your life. You attract beauty when you choose beautiful thoughts, feelings, actions and activities.

You are growing new things. Allow yourself to develop naturally; cultivate you inner garden with seeds of love and intention. Follow the spiraling pattern that I create as I grow and know that this is how you, too, grow. Follow the spiral into your center and out again. What is hidden can be found. Pay attention to synchronicities and dreams. These are your allies in discovering your own  inner knowledge and true essence.

At the center of your heart lies desires and dreams and aspirations. Great treasure is available within you. Bring these inner resources to the light so they can be shared. Bring them forward for activation. They hold the secret to your soul’s purpose and your spiritual journey.”*

Again we are reminded to look within to our own inner strengths and talents. There is something important that will be revealed if you take the time necessary to search for it. A hidden talent, a strengthened intuition, or a valuable asset that you have not fully discovered; one that will make all the difference. It may be that you are prone to self-doubt and that you will second guess yourself on this, but you must have absolute faith in the process.

Do not compare yourself to others at this time, or ever for that matter! Everyone is on their own unique journey; we each have our own paths laid out ahead of us. Looking to someone else and wishing we had what they have just wastes our precious time and energy. Energy that we could be directing into something much more productive!

This is not a time to seek advice from others. This gives your power away as it puts your choices in someone else’s hands, and will be tainted by their own life experience, which is completely different than yours. Keep your dreams to yourself and make the choices that feel light and right for you, always asking that they be of the Highest Good for all involved. If you need to be heard, try journaling or talking to someone unbiased such as a counselor who can help you to take responsibility for and resolve your own issues rather than fixing them for you.

If you need a boost in confidence or some help healing, try choosing an energy healing modality that resonates with you. Focus also on self-healing by making small changes to diet and exercise, incorporating rest, hydration and proper nutrition. Be gentle with yourself. Spend some time alone in nature; particularly in bodies of water and under the stars to realign your energy and assimilate the higher frequencies that have been coming through.

Namaste

The Angel Of Discovery

Published August 8, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Angel Of Discovery, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell, Cards for Angelic Inspiration, Wisdom and Guidance, published by Watkins Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Angel Of Discovery, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell, Cards for Angelic Inspiration, Wisdom and Guidance, published by Watkins Publishing

Discovery: “My life is a wonderful journey of discovery.”

Angel Of Discovery Card Symbols: “Flight of stairs, map, star, boat, open door, magnifying glass, book”

The Angel Of Discovery Message: “Regardless of age of level of knowledge making discoveries about yourself and the world can awaken your sense of awe and wonder at the universe. The Angel Of Discovery encourages you to keep your mind open to fresh information and experiences at all times.

Ask the Angel to provide opportunities for you to visit new places, meet new people and try your hand at new activities. Call on her to enhance your senses to that your sight becomes clearer and your hearing sharper. Ask her to show you how to act in a more loving and conscious way, to benefit yourself and the environment. In this way, you will enrich your soul and climb to new heights of inspiration.”*

~ By Chrissie Astell

We are constantly receiving downloads of divine wisdom from the Universe. We are being upgraded, filled with light, awakened. It’s a slow and steady process. We need to shift and change; we need to rise above the old and dangerously outmoded social conditioning we have been programmed with for so long. And in order to do this, we need to discover ourselves, our deep connection to the planet, all of her creatures and to each other.

We are inundated with distractions; from the media, from technology, and from the over scheduling business of our every day lives. It can feel unending. It’s easy to start to feel disconnected from what is important; the planet, nature, ourselves and our own inner wisdom. We give away our energy worrying about the news, worrying about our own self-worth. Feeling isolated and alone, we turn to technology to keep us company in a hectic existence. Just a few minutes of reprieve, a little break from reality… or maybe an hour or two. But how else could we use this time? Could we meditate? Get outside? Relax in silent contemplation? Listen to or play music?

It’s time to rediscover our connection to ourselves and our passions. It is time to discover something totally new. A shift in perspective; a new way of seeing yourself, of seeing the world. Of Being.

It’s time to be a warrior, a guardian. Not a sheeple. Not a minion. A sovereign being. One filled with strength and courage, harnessing our joy and passion and using it as fuel for change. We need to become the 100 awakened monkeys, changing the collective consciousness one by one by one.

Namaste

Seven of Fire

Published December 23, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Seven of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Seven of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Seven of Fire: “Divination, Signs, Heeding Intuition, Looking Within, Seeking Answers, Discovery, Awareness, Trust”

Key Phrases: “Heed your intuition, a feeling of recognition, inexplicable coincidences, moments that repeat, personal interpretation is crucial, only you know the answer, look beyond the surface, observe and be aware.”

Card Meaning: “The Seven of Fire represents the development and use of one’s intuition to see the way forward, and predict possible outcomes. Intuition is that gut feeling – it is an instinctual or unconscious knowing – that, when you heed it, can keep you safe from making mistakes, and lead you to being in the right place at the right time. It is a feeling of recognition that we often ignore, but if we choose to heed, can have us moving through life in harmonious accord with our surroundings.

In actively using and then trusting your intuition on a regular basis, you may find you observe more, and in turn, you learn more. You start to see and take notice of signs and messages along the way. You take notice of those little inexplicable coincidences and moments that keep repeating, and, if you heed them, can take you on an adventure of discovery, revealing not only the truths you seek, but also your reason for being. Using and heeding your intuition can lead you to opportunities and experiences that offer the potential to both fulfill you and inspire others.

However, to trust in one’s intuition requires that you look within and determine what the message means to you personally. You can ask the advice of another. You can seek guidance from another. But only you know your answers. Personal interpretation is key. Trusting in the knowledge that is stored within your unconscious mind is key.

Third parties can offer insight, but they see and understand life through eyes that have been shaped and influenced by their own experiences, not yours. Only you know what something means for you, specifically. Only you know if something is right for you. The Seven of Fire represents a need to actively develop or trust in your intuition and instincts at this time. Look around you. Observe. Speak to the cards on a regular basis, and honour the truths revealed by going where your intuition leads you.”

Potential Blockage: “Divination means to foretell or predict the future. Sometimes, our intuition guides us, and at other times it is a simple awareness born of observation and paying attention. At other times, it is a marriage of both.

Every day we are given signs that, if heeded, can reveal what is to come. The Seven of Fire reversed, represents a need to watch for those signs and heed the insights they offer. Observe the people around you. Look closely at patterns of behaviour that repeat, and pay attention to words spoken that lack mirroring actions. Take not of promises broken, overreactions to questions, an inability to meet the eyes, and laughter that seems forced or contrived. They are all indications that there is more going on. Learn to watch. Learn to listen. Heed what your observations and senses are telling you. If you have a tendency to dismiss them, don’t. Don’t ignore them. If your gut tells you something is not as it seems, then look beyond the surface and see what is truly there… and then address it.

Seven of Fire as challenger cautions you against being dismissive. Pay attention. Look. Observe. Discern the truth. Address the contradictions and inconsistencies. See the signs – even the ones that might seem a little obscure and insignificant. They may foretell a future that is not in accordance with your goals.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

Use your intuition. What is it telling you? This is your Higher Self, your Soul, talking to you. This is the way the guidance comes, through your body, through the whisperings of your heart. What feels light and right? What feels like it’s missing, or doesn’t sit well with you. Watch the people around you. Watch for actions matching words. This is authenticity, when promises are kept, and behaviour matches the talk. If they are not walking their talk, then you walk in the opposite direction, that one is not for you!

Do not override this guidance, it is a precious gift. Yes, you are right, trust in yourself. If you feel that feeling, and you just know something is not as it seems… trust that you are correct and wait for confirmation, it will come. Then listen to it and distance yourself. Create boundaries that allow you to assess the situation without getting dragged in, hook, line and sinker! Earth Angels and Lightworkers want to see the best in everyone, believe me, I KNOW! And yet, unfortunately, not everyone is in the place in their lives to give you their best, and you cannot fix them, or work on their potential for them. But you can bless and release them and let them go their own way, it is after all, their journey, just as this is yours.

Listen to yourself. Do not justify the behaviour of another for any reason. Be honest and true to you.

Namaste

Maui ~ Discovery

“Feel eager again for discovery and adventure. Curiosity may help you break barriers and solve problems.”

“Across Polynesia, from New Zealand to Hawaii, we hear stories about the hero Maui. Although the tales differ slightly from island to island and region to region, Maui’s exploits have given man fire, invented the kite, and even fished up whole islands for humans to live on.

Sometimes depicted as slightly disheveled and street smart, Maui manages to outwit his brothers and other opponents in his adventures. Other versions tell of a strong and mighty Maui, able to perform extraordinary heroic feats, but the common traits in most of his stories are his curiosity and urge for discovery.

Maui is the being responsible for introducing fire to man; in fact, he stole it from a bird. Maui and his brothers went fishing in the lagoon and happened to look back at the mountain near the shore. There was a fire burning. Man had not had fire for many generations, as the volcano that supplied the embers had ceased its rumbling. Racing back, Maui found only a wisp of smoke and a family of mud hens stamping the fire out.

every day thereafter, Maui and his brothers checked for fire but saw nothing. However, as they paddled out to fish one day, they saw a fire glowing against the mountain – out of reach again!

Now Maui had a plan. He decided to wait on shore while his brothers went fishing, but no fire appeared. Increasingly frustrated, Maui decided to make a life-sized doll of himself, and his brothers paddled out with it one fine day. this time, Maui would catch the birds at their fire.

Maui climbed up the mountain and found a hen just about to make the fire. Not waiting for her to start, he grabbed her and held her prisoner. Reminding him that if he hurt her, the secret would be lost, the bird convinced Maui to release her in return for the recipe for fire. The old hen taught Maui how to start a fire by rubbing special sticks together. Maui, quite the funny man, said to the mud hen, “come here, there is one more thing to rub!” And he rubbed the feathers on her head so hard that a bald patch appeared. Ever since that day, mud hens have had no feathers on their heads.

Maui’s sense of discovery also extended to creating a fishing hook so powerful that it pulled up whole islands from the ocean (to his utter surprise, mind you), and it is said that he created the islands of Hawaii in that way.

Call on Maui when you are eager for discovery, when you are working on solving a difficult problem and the answer seems far away, or when you need to find a little of the hero within yourself.”

Shadow Side: “Maui is a trickster and often makes his discoveries or gets his prize through stealing or, at the very least, outmaneuvering those in his way. While the end sometimes does justify the means, deceit and deception are not the ideal ways o get what you want. Maui’s appearance raises questions about our levels of authenticity, honesty, and contrivance.

We need to also monitor our levels of anger and frustration – sometimes humor can diffuse a difficult situation in the best possible way.”*

It’s time to get adventurous, shake things up a little! We get so stuck in our ruts, our comfort zones, and we are afraid to step out and change things.

What can you do differently today? Have some fun with it! Change up your routine, even if you have to stick to the plan. Wear something sexy and bright; take a different route to work; get a walk in at lunch time; call an old friend and laugh together; take a risk ask that special someone out on a date; pick or purchase some flowers for you or a loved one; surprise someone you love with some chocolate; try a new exercise class; do something you love to do that you have been too busy to do lately. Do something that makes you smile. Do something that makes someone else smile. Stir up the energy and see how it changes your day.

Rediscover your inner child. See each day as an adventure and make sure you stay flexible to accomodate some exciting surprises from the Universe… co-create a way more exciting existence for yourself! You deserve it, and joy, happiness and peace all start with little FUN!

Namaste

Dee
