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

Courage: “The warmth of all your open heart can give comfort to all who cross your path.”

“The root word for courage is coeur, which is the French word for heart. Courage comes from the heart. It is an inner strength, guided by love, which seeks truth and justice.

When you have the courage to be true to yourself, you start to feel empowered to act and live in ways true to your own soul, without any illusion. Ganesha is urging you to let down your guard and stop wearing a mask. Begin to have more respect for yourself as well as others. When you come from the heart, you will find that you relate better to others. Your innate gifts will be able to shine through. You are capable of leadership, achievement and inspiring others to succeed, through your own success.

When you draw this card, it is a sing that your ability to cooperate and thrive in peer ventures with like minded individuals is heightened. Be willing to do what is needed for things to run smoothly for you. Ganesha promises great success if you are willing to let down your walls. He is picture here on the powerful lion, inherited from his mother Parvati. The lion represents the fierce nature of Ganesha. He calls on you now to trust the fearless part of your being, your own inner lion, and invites you to work with him to learn how to be valiant and harness your heart’s great courage.”

It takes courage to take the opportunities we are offered; even when they are what we desire, they may be out of our comfort zone. They may feel scarier than living without the dream we have been so focused on creating. We may feel we are not yet qualified. We may feel we don’t know enough. We may feel that we don’t deserve it. Or maybe we have been treated badly in the past, have not done the necessary healing and worry we will suffer again. So we let opportunity pass us by.

Or, we have to give someone or something up, and even though we know it is absolutely vital, we hold on tight. We stick with what we know, and we let our heart’s down again. We put our masks firmly in place and pretend we are better off anyway. Who needs all that change.

Lord Ganesha is the breaker of obstacles, nothing stands in his way. If you are stuck, ask for his assistance in moving forward in a heart centered way. Ask him to assist you in your healing process. Ask him to help you to take off the mask. Ask him to present you with the courage to make the necessary change, take the necessary action and move forward towards your destiny.

Make an altar, with a couple of candles, a picture of Lord Ganesha, and an offering, flowers or a crystal will do nicely. Burn some incense. Light the candles, say a prayer and set your intention. Know that success is inevitable, although what form it takes could be a bit of a pleasant surprise!

Namaste

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

Cultivation: “Listening to music can heal, encourage, and nurture your soul.”

“Your spirituality is an essential part of who you are, and it forms the framework of your world. Music resonates with the human spirit. At the heart of humanity is the song of the soul. Music has the power to unite communities, cultures, and civilization. Listening to music can heal, hearten and support your soul.

Studies have found that musical tones communicate with and have an energetic impact on the cells and organs of the human body. It is believed that the cells vibrate and essentially have their own musical intonations. Listening to music can help heal and uplift your energy. You may find that by tuning into uplifting or calming music, you create space for greater contemplation and, in turn, gain more clarity about what you are creating in your life. It can also bring about a stronger connection to your higher self or to oneness.

Music cultivates community as sound fosters communication and greater unity. Cultivation is a continual process that develops, encourages, and nurtures. There is a spiritual connection that forms between the music and the listener. Ganesha is inviting you to incorporate music into your life in a way that will augment your spiritual expansion. Listen to soothing music while you prepare for your day. Move away from the noise of excessive electronics and digital images and back to a more melodic existence. Take time to sit and listen to music. Doing this can shift your energy to a clearer and more receptive state.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Music has always been a vital part of our many civilizations across the planet. Music is a way that we can bridge the gap between cultures. Music can bring us together emotionally, triggering in us deep emotional release. Music is an integral part of marking a celebration, or honouring those who have passed. Think about the importance of music in movies, as it can get your heart beating fast when the killer is about to strike or tears flowing when lovers reunite.

Music has incredible healing properties that we are only just beginning to understand. The power of sound vibration can be used to kill diseased cells, promote growth in healthy cells and create the perfect balance within the energy centers or chakras of the body, promoting health and well being. 

Music can calm or stimulate the mind, assisting us in meditation, greater memory retention, and better connection between the logical and emotional parts of the brain. It can actually assist us in dealing with trauma and heal lingering emotional pain. It is proven that making music assists in the creation of new neural pathways; opening parts of the brain that would otherwise lay dormant. Yes, that means it quite literally makes you smarter.

But not all music is created equal. If you want to amplify the benefits of healing, bringing together the body, mind and spirit, it is suggested that you listen to Solfeggio or Binaural beat music,  based on the principle of Entrainment, which coaxes the brain to match the vibrational frequency of the music, promoting healing, sleep or altered states of consciousness.

Bring music into your world today. Get intimate with it. Put in some headphones and listen to the Solfeggio frequencies, there are many free on Youtube. Experiment with using this music to assist you in calming the mind, releasing stress, and healing the body. Let it move through every cell of your body. If you are able to experiment with making music, or participating in listening to or participating in a live music session with gongs, crystal bowls, hand pans, drums or any of the other magical instruments of the world… even better.

Namaste

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

Embrace: “Believe in yourself and others to discover a deeper importance to your being.”

“Recognize that your interactions with others are important. Healthy relationships require a lot of work to maintain them. In many parts of the world hugging is recognized as a familiar kind of greeting, in addition to being a manner of acknowledgment or support and reassurance for someone else.

Ganesha is encouraging you to maintain a compassionate heart. Be nurturing towards yourself and others. There will be a lot to be gained from seeing things from a practical or down to earth perspective when it come sot dealing with others or pertaining to your present circumstance. Focus on creating a balanced life for yourself. Remember the a more can be accomplished when you are serene. Be imaginative and helpful. Deal with issues as they arise. Keep your wits about you while you determine the best course of action and seek simple solutions to fix the problem with minimal fuss.

Depending on the relationship of the people involved, a hug can symbolize familiarity, love, affection or friendship. A person may hug another in a show of support, comfort or to console. There is an exchanging of energy that takes place as you give and receive at the same time.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Embrace what you have and embrace what is coming to you. Embrace those you love. Embrace your place in this world; a part of All That Is. Embrace your life’s journey and all it has taught you so far. Embrace the possibility; the opportunity. Embrace where you are now and where you are going. Embrace your past, your present and your future. Embrace the most authentic version of yourself in the world and your ability to express it creatively.

Embrace

Know that things are constantly shifting and changing around you as you constantly shift and change your perceptions. Know that the world is opening up to you in so many different ways. Know that you are loved, you are supported and you are integral to the Universe. Know that you came here for a reason.

Hug someone today, let them know how important they are to you. Create a positive exchange of energy, healing, caring, uplifting. Express your gratitude; your acceptance, your love. Focus on what is important to you. Focus on what you wish to create. See the best in someone today, allowing them to be themselves.

No judgment, no control. Open heart and open mind. Compassion. Forgiveness. Acceptance and love.

And so it is

Namaste

Harmony

Harmony, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, By Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

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

Harmony: “You deserve to feel good about your existence.”

“The card is symbolic of your personal beliefs and what will bring you happiness in your life. Ganesha is asking you to remember to radiate warmth and energy. Take some time to reflect on your personal values and attitudes. What do you believe will bring you the outcomes you are longing for in order to have a complete and happy life?

The colour orange can refer to a period of socializing, activity and new adventures. Orange is the colour of the Sacral Chakra and is associated with the sexual organs and reproductive systems. It can symbolize happiness and love. We store our feelings, emotions, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy and connection in this domain. How deserving do you feel? When you feel that you deserve good, you treat yourself well and require that others treat you well also. When the Sacral Chakra is clear and the energy is in balance, you are friendly, compassionate, and empathic with a concern for other. You will experience a very strong sense of belonging.

Feel good about your life. Enjoy time with friends and do what is necessary to bring yourself in alignment with what you want from the relationships in your life.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

There is an essence of sacred sexuality here, of sensuality. Luxuriating in the senses. Being in the moment. Making connections that matter. Lasting friendships, deep relationships. Delving into the soul of another. It may be romantic, it may be platonic, but there is intimacy, truth, authenticity. All the things that matter most. Bonds are formed or strengthened. Acceptance, allowance, and Unconditional Love is key.

There is creativity here, manifestation. Co-creation. Making of things that are important; vital to the future. Building something structurally sound, a foundation that will hold steady under pressure. Harmony between body, mind and spirit. A meeting of the minds.

Self-belief, balanced self-worth. Confidence, self-expression. Creativity. Anything is possible.

Wear orange if you can get away with it. Hold, wear or place under your pillow a carnelian crystal. Lie down and place it a couple of inches below your belly button on your abdomen and let it work its magic, clearing, empowering. Meditate. Breathe all the way in, deep into your belly, feeling it rise and fall.

Do something interesting today. Shake things up a little. Don’t hesitate. Don’t think too much about it, just go for it. Have a little adventure. Flirt a little. Surprise someone special. Plan a date night. Make a fancy supper. Indulge a little. Splurge. Splash out.

Harness the energy of Harmony, of joy, happiness and connection. Pull yourself into the moment. Look around you. Take time to experience deep gratitude for all the magic.

Namaste

Joy

Published November 27, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Joy, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

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

Joy: “Joy is the state of the heart and soul.”

“Joy happens when the heart and the soul unite. This union is to achieve expansion for a greater good related to your divine path. Joy can create in you a sense of contentment, acceptance, and serenity. Even when your life is in flux, you feel a deep knowing that whatever might happen will be for the highest good for all involved. When you have this knowledge in you, it brings spiritual determination. Even through difficult circumstances such as those that you may currently be undergoing, you will ultimately find your happiness.

Through this card, Ganesha acknowledges your stress and exhaustion as you work to adapt to new patterns of behaviour and release your old stories. You may not be happy right now, but you can experience joy in knowing that striving through a difficult situation is important. You are urged to realize that you came into this lifetime to undergo certain experiences and to learn very specific life lessons.

Be honest with yourself; allow yourself your feelings and emotions. Remember that if your heart is feeling wounded and its healing is taking place, you are likely grappling with deep feelings and sentiments that may have even been repressed in you for lifetimes. Share your thoughts, feelings, emotions and anxieties with those who can support you at this time. Joy will be the final outcome. Your energy and your inner light are shifting to reveal your life’s grand plan.

In this card, Ganesha holds garlands made of erukku flowers, which have the ability to eliminate negative energy from the body and mind of a person. In your mind’s eye, make an offering of garlands made of erukku flowers to Ganesha. In exchange, Ganesha blesses you with good health and freedom from ailments.”*

~By Angela Hartfield

Joy is manufactured on the inside; but it’s easy to forget that. Particularly when we are stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted by the demands of everyday life. We are bombarded with an unending barrage of suggestions of ‘stuff’ that is supposed to fill this void. A car, a house, a hot model, a vacation somewhere tropical, beer, chewing gum or a new mop all offer claims of fulfillment, happiness and joy. And we actually buy into it, in a superficial way. We think ‘if only…’ then, we would be happy. If only we had more money, a better body, a great career, a bigger house, a faster car, a more expensive watch, a sexy supermodel at our side… the list feels infinite. If only… then we would be happy. Then the stars would all come into alignment and life would have meaning. Finally. Ugh!

That is simply not true! If we rely on this insane way of thinking we will never, ever be happy! We will never feel fulfilled. We will remain in the rat-race, spinning and spinning away, trying to accumulate all those things that we feel will provide the happiness for us. Now that is true misery.

Happiness is about coming back to this moment, right here and now. Not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. It is about letting ourselves experience the bad with the good but remaining balanced, grounded and centered in the moment. It is about seeing what we do have and focusing all of our energy on having more of that. It is about being grateful for the experiences, the lessons, and the love in our lives. Releasing the old pain and embracing the new opportunities and leaving space for possibility.

Nothing really brings joy. You find it yourself. On the inside.

Namaste

Divine Support

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

Divine Support: “AUM is a powerful tool for bringing focus and awareness to the deeper meaning of life.:

“Ganesha is strongly connected to the mystical syllable AUM (sometimes written as “OM”). The sacred AUM is the most important universal symbol of the divine presence in Hinduism. It is held to be the cosmic sound, which was generated when the world first came into existence. The written form of this divine symbol when reversed gives the flawless outline of Ganesha.

The use of the AUM sound is one way to help you connect to the divine support available to you now. Ganesha is ready to share his wisdom, knowledge and guidance that is innate within his being. You now have the opportunity to cultivate a closer relationship with Ganesha or with any Ascended Master or divine being that resonates with you.

Drawing on divine support facilitates a greater connection to your divine voice, which can be a source of inspiration and great wisdom in times of uncertainty or challenge. Ganesha’s desire is to assist you on your life path. Know that he is guiding you away from fear, distress, and anguish, and towards the light and love at the center of your being – the same light and love which resonates through the vast Universe and which is contained within the universal sound of AUM. Consider chanting this tone or listening to a recording of AUM to bring about the energetic shift that is needed at this time.”*

~By Angela Hartfield

AUM is magic. It is creation; sacred geometry of sound connecting everything in the Universe as One. It is everything we need right now; bringing us back to peace, harmony and connection to All That Is. Chanting it in your own voice ads an extra layer of magic, mystery and deep connection. Connection to your Higher Self and connection to your angels and guides. It is a call to the Ascended Masters who wish to work with you now. Try starting your day with three consecutive AUMs, and finishing it as well. See the difference it makes to connect your physical heart to your Soul essence. It’s powerful; profound.

Ganesha, the breaker of obstacles comes to you now to assist you to move forward fearlessly into a new chapter of your life. Use the AUM to dispell fear and doubt. Call upon him to assist you in your endeavours.

If you prefer to listen, my favourite OM is the video below by Jonathan Goldman. My kids are acting up? I put it on. Stressed, cleaning the house or sleeping… I put it on. It brings me back to myself, where I can find stillness and balance.

 

OMMMMMMM

Spiritual Practice

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

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

Spiritual Practice: “A spiritual practice will help ground your day. It may trigger observations that lead to life-changing breakthroughs and ideas.”

“There are many ways to maintain a spiritual connection through a committed practice. Ganesha is asking you to reflect on the benefits that may be gained by following a specific daily routine for your spirituality. This might include prayer, meditation, or an exercise schedule that connects the body, mind and spirit such as yoga or tai chi.

Additionally consider burning incense, which is often used to accompany prayers, invocations and spells in many cultures. As the incense smoke rises up to the heavens, it is said to represent the requests reaching their destination and meeting with approval from the Divine. Incense is also believed to have properties that dispel negative energy. Use incense or burn sage to create a special haven for yourself or to clear a sacred space in preparation for a special occasion or ceremony. The smell of incense can also bring about heightened spiritual awareness and realization for the user.

There are many tools and techniques that you can use through out your day to preserve or regain tranquility. Even simply taking a deep breath can restore a spiritual connection. Find what worlds for you and dedicate sometime to your practice each day.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

I have mentioned many times that yoga has quite literally saved my life! It has brought me the sanity and peace of mind; centeredness and balance that got me through some of the most difficult times of my life to date. Daily practice. Being with  yourself, every single day is different. Every day something shifts, body, mind and spirit. Today is totally unlike yesterday and who knows what tomorrow holds. When you are in the hot room, anything could happen! I tell people that when my kids grow up and leave my nest, I will keep doing yoga. More and more yoga! I will travel and do yoga. I will go back to teaching yoga. I will happily step into a bubble of yoga that will guide me for the rest of my days.

I’ve put quite a lot of effort into my spiritual practices. I work a lot with crystals and grids. I write these posts, which gets me working with all the beautiful cards I have been blessed to work with. I read a lot. I listen to beautiful music. And yet I’m always looking for more ways to connect, more ways to heal, more ways to share. It always feels like there could be more, that there’s so much to learn. There is so much to weed through as well to see what feels right, what resonates with your heart and soul.

Commit to your spiritual practice in whatever capacity you can. Whatever feels right to you. Make an altar, learn a new form of exercise, expand your musical taste, get outside in the forest. Whatever connects you, whatever calls you. Talk to your angels and guides. Share your experiences with others, give them safe space to talk about their experiences too. Experiment with crystals, colour or energy healing modalities.

Disengage from the drama of life and get back to what matters most. Your heart and soul, your love and your light. Your biggest gifts to share.

Namaste
