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

Empowerment: “The moment for respect for life and all living things, attuning to nature and to the creatures of the Earth is at hand. Tune into the deep well of compassion that spills over readily to anyone who needs your help. You are being directed to take action to remove difficulties and resolve problems. Be receptive to guidance from wherever it happens to come. Do not be surprised to receive support from unusual avenues. Be alert to seemingly random input, which will give you clues and ideas that had not occurred to you earlier. Once you have picked up these signs, pursue them diligently and with determination. The potential for them to pay off is immense. As soon as you know what action to take, take it!”*

This card is a mirror of the goddess within us all. Gaze at her beauty and perfection; her ultimate power and stunning grace. She embodies all; the storm and the sunshine; the rainbow and the waterfall; every season; every creature; nurturing safety and utmost peril. She is fertility and love, passion and fire; water and rainbows; snowflakes and ice. She is the Northern Lights; she is the brightest dazzling day and the very darkest nights. She is all encompassing, she is in every aspect of the world but yet not caught up in any particular part of it. She is rooted in the present as she gazes with detachment into the future. We too are all of these things. We are flesh and bone, yet we are stardust and light.

Since the ecplise season this summer, I have felt the goddess energies flowing through every aspect of my own life. Body, mind and spirit. Do you feel her energy too? Which ever goddess you feel drawn to embodies the aspect of Divine Feminine energy that will benefit you most in this present moment. Expanding into your own personal power is vital for us, as this empowerment will allow us to truly step into our authentic selves. The Goddess reminds us that we are beautiful, we are capable, we are Divine. She whispers to our Souls and if we quiet our busy minds we can hear her words of wisdom. She whispers gentle that we are right here, right now for a very profound experience. A physical, tactile, luxurious experience. Every breath is a gift. Every sip of water is a miracle. Every bite is a whirlwind of pleasure… if we let it be. She is of the Earth and the elements, including Ether, the element of love.

Take a few moments to consciously connect with your Inner Goddess. She is right there in  your intuition. She is gazing back at you in the mirror. She is your foundation, your lifeblood, your strength, your courage. Your love.

You are her and she is you.

Move forward fearlessly with this knowledge safely tucked into the depths of your heart and Soul.

And so it is.

Namaste

Goddess Athena

Goddess Athena, Inner wisdom, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle card: Goddess Athena ~ Inner Wisdom, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Goddess Athena: “You know what to do, trust your inner wisdom, and take appropriate action without delay.”

Message from Athena: “I am happy to assist you; however, you will be most thrilled when you first consult your own inner bank of knowledge. For I assure you that this situation is already resolved and that you have access to all the wisdom that the universe supplies. To access this wisdom, you must quiet your mind. Surrender all worries and other concerns to the loving and almighty power of the universe. Close your eyes, and note the thoughts and feelings that come streaming into your consciousness. If you like, you can ask me to give you a signal that you have heard your inner wisdom correctly. But have faith. I assure you that you have heard, and that the guidance brings you and your loved ones very good news indeed.”

Various meanings of this card: Stop procrastinating. Stop giving away your power to others. Trust your gut. Do not second guess yourself. You are correct. Notice recurring ideas, and take action on them.

About Athena (pronounced Uh-THEEN-uh): Athena is a powerful and wise Grecian goddess who oversees and protects those who call upon her. She is the daughter of Zeus, and her power animals are white owls and black pigeons. Although Athena is a warrior goddess, she does battle with wits instead of weapons. You can call upon her for resolving disputes, and also for protection. In addition, Athena helps with creative projects such as writing, arts and crafts.”*

~ By Doreen Virtue

Wow the synchronicity just keeps coming. More confirmation that we are the spiritual warriors of our own lives. We are constantly creating the world that we are experiencing. And we have the power to change it. That is important; the absolute knowing of that, total and complete conviction. We can change our outer world by changing what is going on inside us, how we use our energy, and where we direct our focus and intention.

This is also a card of action, of trusting in your own gut instincts and moving forward fearlessly. Feel into the situation and trust what comes back to you. You don’t need anyone else’s opinion, and you do not need to seek advice at this time. Do what you know that you need to do, and do it now. Your window of opportunity is here, don’t waste this valuable chance! Lead from the heart and you cannot go wrong.

Namaste

Beautiful Bandit

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Beautiful Bandit, from the Love Your Inner Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante, published by Blue Angel

Beautiful Bandit In A Reading: “You can choose right now to feel good about yourself. If you have been beating yourself up, stop it now. Don’t let anyone else decide how you should feel about yourself. Taking responsibility for your actions means that when you have done something that you feel is out of integrity, you do something about it that is constructive and useful. Damning yourself with judgment, or allowing another to steal your self-esteem, is neither of those things. The Divine Mother is telling you to forgive yourself and use your energy now to live the best life that you can. It is time to take your life back.”

Spiritual Guidance: “You are one tough sweetheart, a spiritual gangster, a beautiful bandit, stealing back from the unworthy that which rightfully belongs with you. You have certain spiritual rights that cannot be denied you. Your dignity, power and grace, your sense of beauty and self-esteem, your chosen belief systems, your energy and your right to take up space in this world rightfully belong to your soul. Your faith in your spiritual connection with the Universe and your sense of your life purpose belong to your soul, too. Even when you make mistakes, the Great Mother loves and forgives you, knowing that you are doing your best and are her precious daughter. You have a spiritual right to be free from torment, cruelty and mental anguish. You alone own the right to choose your thoughts and claim your freedom to make your own choices. You are fierce with wisdom. You know that another cannot ever successfully steal what truly belongs to you – and if they try, your sacred rage will rise up, and you will not hesitate to stake the winning claim for what is rightfully yours. The Beautiful Bandit comes to you with a message – anything that you feel has been taken from you unfairly shall be taken back by you. Claim what is yours by spiritual right. Justice will prevail.”

Sacred Ritual: “Stand upright. Say aloud, ‘I claim the entirety of my divine inheritance. All that is rightfully mine through divine justice and divine mercy is now returned to me. Through my own free will, so be it.” *

~ By Alana Fairchild

This is such an important message; I feel like it speaks directly to me. And I bet it speaks to you too. Taking up space. Expressing every aspect of your Being. Embracing yourself, your divine feminine energy and your worth. Seeing your value. Kicking ass at being so amazingly you.

Why is that so hard to do? Why do we keep ourselves smaller; stuffed into the boxes that were made for us by others? Why do we limit ourselves, doubt ourselves, judge ourselves so harshly? We over analyze, we stress, we criticize and we lose faith in all that we have to offer the world. We give up way too easy. And we deserve better. So much better than that.

Often we go up to bat for others, for a cause we believe in. Animals, the planet, oppressed people. Yet we get the short end of our own stick. We are the first thing we cut out on when we are low on time and energy.

All that has to change. Right now.

Step into July with new resolve; strong intention; complete clarity of vision.

Embrace who you are. Cherish your individuality. Know that you really are perfect just as you are, but it is also ok to be a work in progress. We need our fierceness back. Our wild hearts need the chance to guide us.

We came here for a reason, and that reason is to be as powerful as we are capable of being. So much more powerful than we have yet to realize. And the only way to access this power fully is to commit to loving ourselves. Truly, deeply, authentically.

Namaste

Responsibility

Published May 3, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Responsibility, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Responsibility, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Responsibility: “Self-discipline ~ Empowerment ~ Reliability ~ Fulfillment”

Card Story: “Cradled in the palms of loving hands, a sprouting seed rises up through the soil into the light of day. within this seedling is the growing vision of a great fruitful plant or tree. There will come a time when the steward of this seed will need to plant it into the ground for it to spread its roots and grow in full form. There will come a time for this seed of life to give back all who have nurtured it along the way. But for now it is safe here, being protected, and honoured by the one who was given the responsibility to care for it.”

Card Message: “Responsibilities and self-discipline are vital in creating all the things we want in life, from a healthy body and mind, though to a successful career and happy relationships. This card is an invitation to smile at the opportunity to fulfill your responsibilities.

Sometimes responsibilities feel like a burden, as though they take away our freedom. But we actually need some responsibilities to give us structure in our lives. By having this structure in our lives we end up having more freedom rather than less.

If we avoid responsibilities we are unable to learn the basic lessons of discipline and organized focus required to achieve our goals. We may drift from one relationship, home or job to another, repeatedly ending up in situations we do not want to be in, but not knowing why we ended up there.

Once we take genuine responsibility for ourselves we realize that the power to change is always right here within us. We stop blaming other people and external sources and we become self-empowered. From this place we find the strength, dive and energy to make the choices necessary to truly fulfill our desires.

Next time you hear yourself ‘blame’ someone for something, stop and ask yourself how you can take responsibility and help the situation. If you are unhappy in your job or relationship, what can you do to change it? If you need more money, how can you take responsible action towards this today? Only you can be responsible for you!

On the other hand, if you are overly responsible for others you may disempower them by not allowing them to take responsibility for themselves. We each need to learn our own lessons in life. To acknowledge our strengths and to learn from our challenges. Know when you have played your part and when it is time to let the seed grow on its own.

By taking responsibility for ourselves and embracing our responsibilities in life, we build a foundation toward a successful and fulfilling life. We become powerful individuals rather than dependent ones. We claim a sense of strength, freedom and confidence that comes through discipline and self-mastery. From this place comes the realization that we can create anything we went to this lifetime!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

The good news is that you are one hundred percent responsible for creating your reality. The bad news is, if you don’t like your current reality, only you can take responsibility and change it for the better. If you resist this concept, there may be a little work to do around it.

Yes there has been pain in your life and possibly it occurred when you were too young and vulnerable to do anything to change it. Or maybe you have suffered a loss or great tragedy. This is not about belittling anything you have been through or are going through. My heart goes out to those parts of yours that are shattered, I have been there too in my own way. We all have pain. I get what you might be thinking… how could you have created that? Why would you have anything to do with it? Well, on a Soul level, for whatever reason, you came into this life with a specific lesson that you wanted or needed to experience. It may just be the most challenging one of all. It may not make any sense to you on this level of consciousness. It may cause so much pain that you refuse to buy into that and that is completely up to you. But if there is a shred of belief in there and you are willing to open up to it then hear me out. It’s just a theory.

What if we came in to learn how to overcome the worst of what has happened to us. To find a way to move past it and find peace despite it? What if the ultimate challenge is to create beyond what has happened in the past, and find a way back to our true authentic selves. To learn to choose love no matter what. To refuse to get caught up in the victim consciousness that gets us stuck in a downward spiral of negativity. To find light where there is darkness and be a beacon for those who are also struggling. To step into your soul purpose and do what you are destined to do.

Maybe you are working hard doing all of this in your own life and your message is to step back from someone who is draining your energy by playing out their own victim consciousness. You can be supportive but you do not have to be drained; it’s ok to distance yourself a little. We all have lessons to learn, and we can’t step in and live someone else’s life for them, even if we wish we could. Everyone has their own journey. Everyone of us has our own individual circumstances, experiences and lessons. We can all support each other, love and accept each other during our darkest times, but we cannot rescue someone who is not willing to put in the effort to rescue themselves. We can only hold space for them while they heal themselves.

Namaste

Goddess Durga and Hematite

Published February 28, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Goddess Durga and Hematite, from the Crystal Mandala Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jane Marin

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goddess Durga and Hematite, from the Crystal Mandala Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jane Marin

Goddess Durga and Hematite: “Spear of The Guru Mother”

“We bring you the empowerment of spear of the guru mother. Sometimes there is so much choice that we struggle to commit. It is often not an issue of unwillingness to make an effort, but concern that the choice might not be the ‘right’ choice. We might pray to the Universe to be shown what to do according to a wisdom greater than our own. Although our free will is always in place – we are able to accept a task divinely given, or reject it – the Universe answers every prayer. In your heart you have been asking for guidance to be shown what you need to do in a particular situation or, perhaps more generally, in your life at this time. You want to know the best way forward so your actions are in alignment with heaven. In response, you have now become the spear of the guru mother.”

“The Spear of the Guru Mother is the direct, focused and clear task given to you by the fiercely compassionate divine feminine. The guru mother is the unconditionally loving guide who will protect your soul, keeping you on the straight and narrow (spiritually speaking) and ensure that your efforts bring you the best spiritual results and not lead you off onto a distracting and ultimately unnecessary tangent.

Although you can choose whether or not you wish to accept the task, know that it has been divinely bestowed upon you. How do you know which task this is? Look to your life. What’s happening? What’s possible for you to act upon? Where is your growth edge? What are you currently empowered to do? There’s your task. Do what you can and do it now.

The oracle also comes to you with this understanding – if the Divine gives you a task, you can handle it. Even if you are going to need to grow, you have it within to complete it successfully. When the Universe gives you an opportunity or life situation to work through, it is giving you a vote of confidence. The Divine Mother says to you, ‘ Here is my will. I’ll empower you, now go for it!’ If you want to take her advice, don’t hesitate or doubt. Be as focused and forward moving as if you were the spear that she had thrown with her almighty hand and flawless aim, heading straight towards the center of the target.

When the Oracle of Spear of the Guru Mother comes to you, you are being told your efforts have divine power behind them. The situations in your life you are willing to grapple with are going to resolve far more quickly and potently than you might have believed possible. The power of your own efforts, amplified with divine will, creates extraordinary movement. Distraction, procrastination and hesitation shall not touch you. Your focus will be complete and your task shall be attained. The trust you feel in yourself and the Divine will increase because of this. You will gain more confidence in yourself. You will become  game for bigger and bolder challenges. The Universe will be able to ask more of you and give you more because you shall be increasingly open to it. The risk you take at this time, with absolute intention, will bring you so much more than resolution of the task at hand.

If you have been overwhelmed, confused, pulled in too many directions and feeling as though you are trying to do everything and completing nothing, this oracle comes with guidance. The spear of the guru mother, if requested, will fly through your life and take you along with it for the ride. The unleashing of divine will shall clear away the inessentials and reveal to you what is important and what you need to do. If you are willing to surrender into this fierce grace, you will be honoured by it. Go into your heart, and if you feel brave and bold enough (you are! you are!), then complete the following healing process to invoke the guru mother’s intervention.”

Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:

I call upon the Crystal Angel of Hematite and Goddess Durga who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing empowerment of the spear of the guru mother. May my actions be true, decisive and pure. May I ground truth through my actions in the world. May the spear of the guru mother enter my life and direct my being into fearless, focused action. May all beings, through unconditional love and divine mercy, be blessed with the clear conscious awareness of divine will. May they be empowered by it to act with fearlessness and joy. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

Synchronicity. Durga was mentioned in yesterday’s card. The day before we were reminded that we are closing the chapter of January and February to embark on the faster pace of March. This is a message of action. Of getting out there and doing. Of making things happen, not just thinking and planning but jumping in and getting your hands dirty.

We are about to be challenged to walk the walk not just talk the talk. It is easy to stay in planning mode forever, thinking and analyzing and doing the research and not really moving forward. Wanting it to be handed to us without putting in any effort what so ever.

Know that you are co-creating here, but you must hold up your end of the bargain. You move forward with focused intention and the Universe meets you there. You choose your direction and step forward boldly and the Universe takes your hand. We are in this together and we are being assisted. We have put so much though and so much feeling and so much agonizing. Now it is time for things to get moving.

Start the ball rolling. Get some momentum. Get in there and DO IT!

Namaste

Brazilianite ~ Flexibility

Published December 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Brazilianite ~ Flexibility, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Brazilianite ~ Flexibility, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Brazilianite ~ Flexibility

Crystal Colour: “A range of translucent to opaque greens.”
Related Chakras: “Solar Plexus and Crown Chakras”

Crystal Medicine: “Brazilianite resonates the energy of flexibility and empowerment, offering it to all who cross its path. It gently guides you to release tension and loosen the reins so the divine light of the Universe is able to ebb and flow into your life experiences. It shares its wisdom in divine timing as you open to receive its magic, allowing you to practice flexibility in all aspects of your life. Flexibility makes it easier to make decisions, creating and allowing more inner peace.”

Crystal Meaning: “Assists in decision making. Brings inner peace and self-awareness. Enhances flexibility in your life. Assists in enhancing creative projects. Self-empowerment.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “The devas have come into your world today to highlight the importance of exercising flexibility in your life. When you allow for more flexibility in your life you will open to a whole new world of opportunity. This card is a sign that you are being a little too hard on yourself and rigid in your decisions – or maybe even a little stubborn and inflexible with the people around you or with yourself. You may be feeling frustrated and challenged by other’s opinions. Whatever your situation, you are being invited o be a little more understanding and patient. This is a vulnerable time for you, and the devas ask that you work with them closely to receive the support you require to achieve flexibility. It is time to set yourself free and cut those ropes that you seem to wrap around yourself at times. The devas are inviting you to expand your awareness as you start to see things from a different perspective. You are encouraged to be more open and free in your mind as you deepen in your own beliefs and point of view. As you allow this new state of consciousness, you will allow the gifts of life to flow straight to you. Be open and willing to allow more flexibility to touch your world and your current situation. As you go more with the flow, feel the new sense of freedom and expansion that comes with the willingness to be open and flexible.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Your belief systems are in for a workout… stretching them to the max. With any luck, they won’t stand the force and they will dissolve to dust, leaving you open, free and clear to experience life in a brand new way. Flexibility. Going with the flow. Not trying to control every little detail. Receiving. Expanding. Soaring high.

A person or situation… or both, are going to test your limits. At first, you may hold on for dear lift, pulling those ropes even more tightly around you. Binding you. Suffocating you. You may hold on to being right. You may hold on to the past and project it on this situation. And then… there will be an opportunity to shift. Will you take it? Will you cut the ropes and run free? Disentangle yourself from all the illusion and create something brand new? Allow it to happen as the Universe steps in?

If you do it, it will change everything. If you can let go and find a new way to think about things, it will be pivotal.

Namaste

The Wanderer

Published August 1, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Wanderer, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Wanderer, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

The Wanderer ~ Position on the wheel: “The Wanderer stands at the heart of the human cycle, in the innermost circle of the Wheel, poised between the beginning and the end. This figure waits for guidance across the abyss of awareness and into the realm of archetypal consciousness.”

Card Description: “Poised on the edge of a while chalk cliff, the Wanderer prepares to step across the abyss and into the Wildwood beyond. Ahead lies the faint suggestion of a rainbow arch, onto which the Wanderer must step. This leap across the void is greeted with open arms and a deep trust that the wings of imagination and honesty will carry the figure onto the lush green turf of a new path.

Clothed in bark and the soft green mosses and foliage that symbolize the protective and healing essence of nature, The Wanderer is neither strongly male nor female, both genders combining in the slender body. The figures naked feet treat lightly on the sweet warm grass at the cliff edge and, across the divide, deep shadowed trees stand ready to receive this newcomer to the Wildwood. Amid the leaves of the tangled wood is the merest suggestion of a face – perhaps the spirit of the wood. “

Card Meaning: “At this moment the burdens of the past are set aside – either for the Wanderer to pick up and take along, or to leave behind if the weight is too great. The Wheel of the Year is beginning its great cycle, bringing a new range of possibilities and challenges. The Wanderer is ready to make the leap into the unknown – all that is required is faith.

The Wanderer represents the wisdom or courage to let go, to step into the void of the possible. Something within you may have already begun this unconscious, instinctive leap across the abyss; you know it is time to move on. Sometimes the fear of loss or failure may make you doubt the validity of change. You may want to wait or hesitate at the critical moment because of the comfort of security, but the momentum of the Great Wheel has already sent the true heart of the Wanderer into the future, leaping across the gap with courage and joy. Now the figure must leave the burdens that have been carried for so long and trust to the wings of imagination.

The Wanderer is both an end and a beginning. One journey has already come full circle and, as you distill your life experience into sacred memory and put the past and its burdens to rest, the future waits patiently for you to make the first move.

Remember that your wisdom, strength and whatever personal experiences and sills you have may not help you now. The honest spirit of human inquisitiveness leads you beyond yourself and into a new life. This unconscious energy creates a Rainbow Bridge that rises and greets your foot. It will carry you over the void, as you step, trusting and empowered, into the unknown.”

Reading Points: “You have come to a junction or turning point in your life. It may be an unconscious state in which you feel the tide has turned or sense something is going to happen. In a way it already has. Your spirit must move on and the desire to leap into the unknown beckons. This may mean leaving behind or giving up some baggage or burden that you have carried with you from the past. Now is the time to be clear and not let fear of falling or sad disillusion with the universe hold you back. Let your imagination carry you into a new set of possibilities. It is a time to travel hopefully and open your arms to new and challenging aspects of the universe.”

Roots and Branches: “Blind faith. A blank slate. The Inner Child. The leap in the dark. Following your heart. The seeker after knowledge or truth. The primal impulse. A vision of illumination that pulls you forward.”*

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

And here we step into August and all it has to offer. Will you walk on the Rainbow Bridge; a bridge of faith that only shows itself as you place yourself with absolute faith upon it?

The Rainbow Bridge leads to a new timeline. Read that a couple of times. Let it sink into your subconsious mind. Close your eyes and say it in your head. Breathe it in. Let it settle.

You are at a cross roads here. Rainbow Bridge, leap of faith, follow your heart, release all the old and step forward into the new. Or more of the same. Totally up to you.

If you wish to create something new, something fantastic, take some time today and figure out exactly what that is. Write it down, make a vision board, put some of your precious energy into it. Focus on it with love and excitement. Breathe life into it.

Remind yourself every day what you wish to create. Despite whatever else happens to be going on around you. Focus.

And when the time comes, and you have put your energy and focus in, and you have created a portal through which to bring it through…

…then you must step out onto the Rainbow Bridge.

Namaste

Dee
