Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Creative Choice, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our Lady Of Creative Choice: “You have my power within you and you are free beyond wildest imagination. Do you know that you are a slave to no thing and to no one? You are a divine being. With the power of creative choice, you can create worlds, my beloved. Even the smallest choice contains great creative power. Do not cast your power aside, my child. Choose to trust me, to live with an open, vulnerable heart, and to let my grace flood through you in rapturous waves of light. Choose wisely, creatively and well. Yet do not fear your power, for the best choice you can make is to learn from all your experiences. I will guide you to use your power to create healing difference in your life now. You have at your disposal the power of Heaven. I will guide you to use it well.

One small stone tossed into a lake can create seemingly endless ripples. So too do our choices create an impact far greater than we might at first expect. Our Lady Of Creative Choice has come to you with a message. No matter what situation is happening in your life, no matter how powerless you may feel to change it or control it, you have so much power here. If you knew how much power you had, you would laugh with relief, and wonder, and reverent joy! You would realize that you don’t have to control anything or anyone in order to feel empowered. Your power doesn’t come from controlling outcomes; it flows from your endless capacity to make choices.

Our Lady Of Creative Choice helps us when we know that the way we have been choosing to be, perhaps feeling reactive or out of control, might not be serving us anymore. Perhaps we have not felt much choice in the past. Perhaps we might have got caught up in feeling frustrated with another, or out of control in certain situations, and all we felt we could do was react. Or perhaps we have become so caught up in just trying to get things done, or work things out, that we forgot that we get to have a say in our lives.

This oracle comes to you as a reminder. You have the power of heaven within you. You don’t need to control life, beloved, but you can choose whether you dance with life responsively, or resist its flow and feel pushed around by it instead. Through paying attention to what is happening for you in the moment – whether that be feelings of happiness or sadness, a feeling of letting go, or moving on, or staying put and learning something – you can then make a choice about how you wish to respond. Your responses to your life circumstances are your choices to make, and a source of great power within.”*

Our lives are filled with moments of choice, yet we don’t see it as so because we spend so much of it on automatic pilot, plodding through routine, doing things we wish we weren’t doing and repeating the same thought patterns as we do it. Us humans are creatures of habit and when we speak of awareness, enlightenment or higher consciousness, it is actually profoundly simple. In order to reach awareness, become enlightened or expand your consciousness, you just need to WAKE UP and be here now. So easy! Right?

We can make the choice to be mindful of our thoughts. We can choose to process our emotions, even if they are uncomfortable. We can choose who to fill our time with; and make some vitally important time to ourselves. We can decide to take good care of ourselves, to love and accept ourselves. We can choose happiness and peace in the fact of adversity.

Or we can keep sleepwalking and feeling like we are too small to make a difference.

It is your choice!

And mine too.

Namaste

Perseverance

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Perseverance, from the Little Wings Oracle Card deck, by Sonia Kallio

Perseverance: “A Light so Divine is in you, it IS you.

You believe you seek your Divinity, when in fact it never left, it has just been lost to your awareness. Pushing it out of your awareness has led you to believe it must be sought outside.

You will not find your Self outside yourself.

Remember the Light within you by allowing it, not by seeking it.

Persevere only in finding all illusions that stand in the way of you knowing your whole and eternal nature.

Practice directing your awareness inward. Love’s Guidance will interpret all beliefs and conditions you unveil, but it cannot shine away what you keep hidden.

Rest assured, Love knows precisely what to do with what you do not want; everything directed toward the Heart that is not Love, is gone.”*

~by Sonia Kallio

We yearn for connection to the Light. We seek it, chase it, search endlessly for it. We ask others about it. Read books about it. Watch sermons; go to workshops; take classes and courses on how to find it. We look for that one perfect explanation; that one prayer, meditation or ritual that brings us closer to the Light. To the Divine, our Source; Spirit.

Yet in all of our searching; in all of our hoping, and dreaming and wishing and praying; we forget that we, in fact ARE the Light. We have it deep within us; in our cells, in our DNA. We are the Heart and Soul and Spirit we seek. We are the connection to the great Divine. We have everything we need within our being, every moment of our lives that we need to make the connection to the Universe.

Can we surrender the drama and pull of the material plane in order to shift our perspective and experience our own true Light?

It might mean mindfully taking a break from stress, from obligation and responsibility, and from technology; if only for a moment. It might mean stepping outside and feeling the Earth beneath your feet; breathing the air; putting your back against a tree; gazing up at the sky. It may be as simple as focusing on your breath; stilling your mind; and letting the silence speak. Maybe some yoga, meditation, or music will help you see your True beautiful Soul self.

However it happens that your perception finally shifts. Focusing on the Now. Breathing in the Universe; feeling and watching your Light expand directly from the heart center. All encompassing; all pervasive. Healing and whole. Bright and perfect and pure. Nothing lacking; complete acceptance and Unconditional Love. This is where you find the light. In the breathe. In the presence.

You are the Light.

I Am the Light.

Remember who you are and why you came here. Christ Consciousness, true unconditional Love.

You are the Truth. You are the Light. You are the Way.

I am the Truth. I am the Light. I am the Way.

Namaste

Mountain ~ Strength

Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Mountain ~ Strength: “The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the¬† blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.

The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.

It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.

The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable fo becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.”*

~by Stephen D Farmer

Sometimes we can’t make up our minds. Sometimes we make up our minds and other people change them for us; then we end up looking back and wishing that we had stuck to our guns and not changed our minds. Sometimes we don’t know what we want and we feel directionless, drifting.

What do you want to create? It sounds like such a simple question, but yet, it is one of the hardest question for many people to answer. What do you want to create? Can you describe it in detail? Can you feel it? See it? Smell, taste and touch it with you mind? Are you focusing on it daily? Hourly? Moment by moment? When you do focus on it, is it in anticipation as you feel it into being? Or is it doubtfully, knowing somewhere in your being that it’s probably never going to happen… a pipe dream?

It makes a huge difference. How you feel about it. HUGE difference.

Like happening or not happening difference. So it’s good to get that sorted out once and for all.

What do you want?

Are you willing to stand your ground for it? Be solid in your belief that you are worth it? Embrace it wholeheartedly as your birthright? Nothing and no one can stand in your way?

When you are solid in your focus, yet reaching for the stars. When you are planted firmly in the now, fully grounded on the Earth, yet your spirit soars up to the Universe. When you are stable and steady and strong.

Then, as you soar to new heights, your dreams will surround you. Worthy you. Confident you. Beautiful, unlimited, Divine: YOU.

Namaste

Shaman

Shaman

Shaman, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Shaman, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Shaman: “Ancient Healing Wisdom.”

“The deep, compassionate eyes of this Native American shaman portray the wisdom of one who has seen ans who knows. He has witnessed visions, spirits, suffering, and joy, and he knows that everything that exists has Spirit’s Intentionality behind it. Able to travel beyond the veil of ordinary reality, the shaman’s primary assignment is to discern and maintain the balance between what his human community takes from the natural world and what it gives back. When this relationship is out of balance, the shaman must do whatever is necessary to restore it. Balance equals healing.

The shaman lives his life in ceremony and treats everything with reverence, including the great mystery of death – and the even greater mystery of Life. He works with his spirit helpers, including his ancestral spirits, to help him in his service to his people and to Earth Mother, providing a liaison between the spiritual and physical worlds.

Charged with relieving suffering as one of his priorities, the shaman does so by first always tending to the spiritual wound – the source of all illness. These healing powers have been passed along over the millennia from the ancient ones, who knew the healing and curative powers of Spirit.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Everything we need to heal ourselves was within our reach at one point in time. Mother Earth created medicine for us, and it grew close to those who needed it. In fact, the medicinal plants that grow close to the people who need them are much stronger to those people than something that comes from afar. Yet, many do not revere the wisdom of this type of healing, it has become “alternative” or holistic, but in many instances is not taken seriously. Also, we have eradicated or polluted many of the most healing plants from our yards and gardens in order to replace them with “prettier” ones. I spoke of this phenomena a few days ago in my “Dandelion” post.

Shaman work with Mother Earth and her beings, both physical and spiritual in order to bring about healing. Many of them may not be able to read, so may not be taken seriously in Western culture. Yet, they have an understanding of the medicine that was put her for us from the beginning of time. If only we could listen. Shaman see and feel the intimate connection between all that is, the thread of life, the consciousness, the beauty and the power. We would go to them in order for them to assist us to plug in to this Divine light.

The message today is to get outside and commune with nature. Slow down and really use all of your senses to absorb all that it has to offer. Get a book on the local native plants and their healing properties; or even better, go ask them yourself… if you listen patiently, they will tell you. Be sure to thank them. And ask permission if you wish to take some with you on your journey.

Embrace a tree with gratitude for the life giving oxygen it is producing for you, as you take a deep breath. Thank the rain god, Tlaloc, for the rain falling from the sky. Send thanks to the Sun God Ra, for the warmth of the sun. Listen closely and thank the birds for their messages, just for you. There is so much out there that we take for granted, and yet it can heal us; body, mind and spirit.

We just need to unplug from technology overwhelm and plug back into Gaia.

Lake ~ Stillness

Published June 27, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Lake ~ Stillness: “The subdued pastels of the early morning light quietly announce that the night is over and the sun is rising. The lake itself has not awakened from its rest and remains still and undisturbed. It welcomes the coming day, ready to respond with grace and fluidity to whatever currents and movements appear in its belly or upon its skin. The surrounding vegetation thrives from the abundant water near the shoreline, and the unoccupied boat lies in wait for its next passenger. All is at rest in this scene.

It is in the deep, internal stillness that we find our Being and come to know that we are intimately united with all of Creation. To achieve this mindset, we must slow down once in a while and get away from the surroundings that interfere and distract our inner tranquility. When we do so, this profound stillness is available at all times, regardless of the environment. We can experience this sensation with steady, conscious breathing; or we can simply pause for a few moments and be still.

The tempo of life these days has sped up considerable, and there seems to be no end to this quickening pace. Immersed as we are in the technological whirlpool, there seems no escape. However, there is no need to be a prisoner to the “hurry up” syndrome, nor is there a need to feel trapped by the awareness of the collective intensities that massive numbers of humans are experiencing these days.

No matter if the noise is from your environment or your seemingly nonstop thinking, it is critical for you to seek stillness. Find it in your world, whether it is a special place in your home or a place in Nature that is far from human made noise. Of particular importance is finding it inside yourself, which can be made easier by being in a quiet place in a natural setting. Doing so not only relaxes your mind, but also heightens your awareness and senses.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Water symbolizes the emotions and a lake, to me, could symbolize deep emotions, but also a large surface area. You may be feeling bombarded from every side right now. Trying not to spread yourself too thin, yet so much to do and each moment seems accounted for before it even happens. This is when overwhelm kicks in and we can find ourselves feeling overemotional… about things that we may not normally feel emotional about.

It’s vital right now to commit to carving out some time to just Be. Just breathe. Take a break, even for a few moments at a time to put things in perspective. How many of these issues are just drama, and what is the root of it all, way down in the depths?

Take a few breaths and imagine yourself, barefoot, at the edge of the lake in the picture above, or your favourite lake. Close your eyes and breathe in the smell of the lake; misty, dewy and fragrant. Feel the trees, the plants and the animals all around you, lending you their strength and stillness. Take a step forward and put your feet in the lake, feeling the cool, crisp, invigorating water all around your feet. You might decide that you want to keep walking and eventually swim, or you may contemplate your reflection in the lake, asking it what you need right now, using it as a window to your higher self. Whatever feels right to you. If you are swimming you could dive down into the surprisingly clear water, feeling young and free and energized. Amazed at how long you can hold your breath for, or maybe finding that you can breathe under this water, you swim deeper and deeper, feeling completely safe and secure. Down at the bottom of the lake, there is a message written in the sand, just for you. As you get closer you can read it as the sun beams right down into the water. What is your message? Send a blessing to the lake, and gratitude for the message, and begin to leisurely swim back up to the surface. As you swim up to the surface, you realize how much lighter you feel, for with each kick and each stroke, you shed some of the stress and worry that has been weighing you down lately. All transmuted into the lake, in exchange for this new lightness of being. You break through the surface feeling like a completely new person. Revitalized, replenished, capable, strong and liberated. As you reach the shore, you know that this lake is always here for you, always willing to assist you to process any of the emotions that feel heavy or dense. Looking back at the lake, you lift your palms to the sky and take a few more long, slow, deep breaths. Knowing in your heart that this you are transformed.

Smiling. From the inside, out.

Namaste

Hawk ~ Focus

Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Hawk ~ Focus: “Choose Your Priorities; and eliminate all distractions.”

“Look at all the choices before you, and select one to which you are willing to give your passionate attention. Once you decide, the right action to take becomes immediately apparent, and Life supports you and provides what you need. You can then arrange all your priorities around that which you have chosen. Set personal boundaries and practice self-care when and where needed. If you do not do this, you can easily get overwhelmed and fragmented, and your power will become scattered and diffused.

Let go of all those habitual diversions that you have made so important. It is time to go to work on the priority you chose and let it flow. The practice of staying focused is in itself a mediation, and this is how you can best express the gifts of service you have to offer to the world and to your Creator.

Additional Associations:

Messenger; Perspective; Detachment; Swiftness.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Do you know what you want? Can you list it in full dynamic detail? Or do you feel more comfortable listing the things that you don’t want? When thinking about what you want, are you able to separate out just you and your dreams and desires? Or do you get wrapped up in what other people want for you, or how your wants would affect them? What about judgement? Are you concerned with what people might think of your choices, is that a factor in painting the perfect picture of your reality?

What if you took all those distractions away and just focused solely on what you would love to create for your own life. Letting go of the worries, the judgement, the fear. Letting go of how it would affect those who have expectations of you. Letting your imagination run wild…. What would that look like? How would it feel?

Now, can you hone it down into several focused goals? Can you select a few action steps to get you going in the right direction, even if they are tiny to start? Can you alter your perception of your current reality to allow space for the new one to integrate? Breathe it into existence?

Decide right now, to take one step each day towards your dreams, no matter what. Be courageous; be direct and most importantly, be authentic to you. Own this new reality, as you let these dreams fly free from your Heart and Soul. They are your lifeline, your bridge to fulfilling your Soul’s purpose.

But remember: Happiness is found in the here and now. When you are focusing on your dreams, you are manifesting what you want to create. Do it with a smile. Do it with joy and enthusiasm and a light heart. For in doing so, you root yourself in this joy and create a magnet for more. You also acknowledge that joy can be found in the now, and is not something that must be chased after… residing in the future.

What are you focused on creating?

Namaste
