The Desert: “Sacred Archetypal Element Of Fire”

“In the desert, we are surrounded by sand and a fiery red sky, with sun pouring down on the ground and wavy energy rising into the air. This is not a mirage, but rather another dimension – the domain of fire. Many mystics have quested for answers to life’s deepest questions in that place of aridity, fire and heat, for it is a place of true transformation. The energy of fire is quick; it consumes everything in its path in the blink of an eye.

The energies of fire push us toward the death of the old and the struggle for new birth, for when we go out into the desert we realize how tenuous our hold is on life, and how easily and quickly we might perish. Yet it is in our willingness to die to the old and leap into the fires of transformation that we surrender the outcome and the future to wisdom tempering quality of fire: it burns away the dross, which includes everything except the essence of what needs to be carried forth. Out of the flaming heat, the scorching fires of transformation, true wisdom is born, rising up out of the desert pyre like a phoenix with brilliant multicolored feathers glinting in the relentless sun.

When you draw this card, it indicates that you are in a fiery process of death, rebirth, and transformation. Spend some time sitting before an open fire or in the sunlight. Light some candles, especially in the dark days of winter. As you meditate on the desert and fire, consider what no longer serves you and offer it to the fire. Ask the fire to embrace and guide you safely through your transformation. Fire can provide you with the courage to face whatever challenge is before you, and the energy and vitality to accomplish your goals with responsiveness, wit and passion.”*

Venus is back direct and things are going to heat up a little, it’s about time! Oh how I have missed our beautiful Goddess of Love energy. We were forced deep into the nether regions of our psyche to unearth all that old pain and trauma concerning relationships and self love that we has been holding us back. It’s been challenging, but oh so necessary for us to purge and clear all that old junk out. The future is not the past. We have learned our lessons and we have released them. We are finally ready to move forward fearlessly, giving and receiving love.

Are you ready?

Ok not to spoil the fun… but be aware that this is where we are headed, but there may be just a little residual energy to deal with before things get really juicy… sigh… just when we thought it was all passion and love…

So here we have the desert… and do not worry, the element of Fire will help us to burn away all the fear, all the doubt, all the excuses and anything and everything else that has been keeping us stuck for way too long. It was high time to clean house! Now take all that old clutter you don’t need anymore and offer it up to fire. Literally write it all down, light a candle, and burn it away (obviously being careful not to light yourself or anything else on fire while you are at it!)

You are the phoenix, rising up from the ashes. What will you create now? What will  you allow to come into  your life now? What else is possible?

Invite love and passion and sensuality.

Be love and passion and sensuality.

Ooh, is it getting hot in here or is it just me?

Namaste

Vishnu

Published April 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Vishnu, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Vishnu: “Balance”

“Rectifying imbalance in your body, mind and soul reduces suffering and pain. The middle path is the best course of action.”

“The Hindus believe that both good and evil exists in the world. This is a natural way of being. When harmony is disturbed, Vishnu appears to maintain balance.

Vishnu, the preserver, is the middle part of the Hindu trinity, between Brahma, the creator, and Shiva, the destroyer. So far, Vishnu has been reincarnated nine times to assist in balancing the powers of light and darkness. These incarnations, or avatars, include those of Rama, Krishna, and Buddha. There is a tenth reincarnation to come, when a hero called Kalki will appear, riding a white horse, to again balance the decline of humanity.

Vishnu, as a supreme spirit, has many attributes, but he is known for his great shakti (energy) and bala (strength). He uses these to keep order in the universe and to subdue injustice and instill harmony. In one avatar Parashurama, he destroyed the warrior castes who were committing great injustices among the ordinary people and sages.

Vishnu is almost always depicted with blue skin and sometimes he rides on his magnificent, bird like mount, Garuda. His partner is the goddess of prosperity, Lakshmi, who sits lovingly with him, often massaging his feet.

Should Vishnu grace you with his presence, know that he is reminding you to find balance in all things. Admittedly, this is hard; we live in a time where seeking balance seems to be at the top of everyone’s list, but first we must be aware of our imbalance! This is where Vishnu asks us to start – with awareness.

Where can you actively seek more harmony and peace? What small or large steps can you take to correct the imbalance for the good of all  – including yourself?”

Shadow Side: “Trying to balance social life and study, duty and freedom, indulgence and simplicity is almost like walking a tightrope. Vishnu invites us to be aware of our imbalances and to seek to correct them. Often the imbalances we aren’t fully aware of – until they give us pain, that is – are the ones we truly need to change. For example, imbalance can manifest as loss of focus, illness, weight issues, bad habits, patterns of low self-esteem, lack of prosperity, and addictions.”

Symbols of Vishnu: “conch, wheel, lotus, bow and arrow”

Invocation: “As with all Hindu gods, there’s a living, breathing tradition to draw upon, so there are many wonderful invocations and chants to be found. I like the following small chant that I learned while in India.

Sit cross-legged or kneel on the ground. Place your left hand, palm upturned, on your knee, and your right hand turned down upon your other knee. Imagine taking in energy from your left hand and grounding it with your right, perfectly in balance.
Say:
‘Lord Vishnu, I feel your balance,
To my left,
To my right,
Above me,
Below me,
Everywhere you are,
I am.’

Repeat this over and over while imagining the shakti (energy) flowing in and out, up and down, through you and around you, in perfect balance.

When you feel balanced, centered, and completed, stand and bow to the north, south, east and west.
Say:

‘I thank you, Lord Vishnu,
for balance in my world and the next.”*

~By Stacey Demarco

The news of the world could quite literally drag us under. It creates a vortex of negative energy, like a black hole. It can be challenging to maintain personal balance amidst the chaos, yet this is exactly what we must strive to do. It is, quite literally, vital to our very existence.

Bombs are being dropped. Weather patterns are changing, becoming more ferocious… this is only the beginning of this phenomena. There are crazy things happening all over the place. It is quiet overwhelming. Add in our own personal drama, worries, obligations and responsibilities, and we have some very heavy energies to deal with.

So what to do about it all? How do we save the world? What can we do about all this?

All we can really do is find ways to incorporate peace into our own lives, moment by moment. Find ways to incorporate joy, passion, love and harmony into each and every day. Find ways to raise your own vibration and thus raise the vibrations of those around you.

Be the love, joy, peace, harmony and passion you wish to see in the world. Avoid the black hole as much as possible. Do not get sucked in to the fear. Meet it with Light. Fill your heart with love despite the chaos.

As much as you can; no pressure, no doubt, no self-judgement.

Just love. Infused into as many moments of every single day as you can.

Namaste

Three Of Fire

Published March 8, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Three Of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

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

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

Three Of Fire: “Action, Implementation, Exploration, Expression, Energy, Hard Work, Sacrifice, Imitation”

Key Phrases: “Necessary sacrifice. Experiment, practice, and refine. Avoid copying those who inspire. Step out into the great unknown and trust. Put your objectives first. Avoid cutting corners. Pay attention to details. Have you lost your direction?”

Card Meaning: “Do you have an idea or creative venture that you would like to implement? The Three Of Fire represents the necessary sacrifice that may be required when we act on our goals and objectives. When we first begin to act, we often find ourselves exploring the paths walked by those who came before us, in order to discover and determine the best way to implement our ideas. However, that same exploration can inspire new ideas that break with tradition, because something old has been re-imagined and expressed by a mind with a unique perspective to make it relevant in the present.

To implement those new ideas requires sacrifice, commitment, and dedication. It means stepping away from what is tried and trusted, safe and secure, and stepping out into the unknown with an almost blind faith and commitment. It means putting the objective first, and turning away from everything that distracts, or might prevent it from being achieved. It means working hard, and not cutting corners in order to speed up the process.

It means knowing that what you create will only equal what you have invested- and what you are willing to invest.

The Three Of Fire lets you know that now is also a good time to explore and experiment on a practical level. Use your hands and mind to practice, hone and refine your skills or abilities so that what you create and do will always be something crafted to the best of your abilities and be a true reflection of your passion and dedication. Remember also, to avoid copying another’s idea, because this is the time to be innovative. Create using your experience and imagination to inspire you, instead of the vision and ideas of another.”

Potential Blockage: “When the Three Of Fire appears as challenger, it represents a need to look closely at what you are doing. Watch where you are going. Do not allow yourself to fall, or trip, or become lost, because you are not paying attention. Remember your objectives and goals. Do not lose sight of them.

Is there something you might be missing because you have not paid close enough attention? Are you cutting corners that may ultimately cost you more than they have saved you because they might destroy a good reputation? Think back to your original plans and what you hoped to achieve. Are you living true to your vision? Or have you lost your way? take a moment to pause and get your bearings so you can move forward with confidence.”*

 ~ By Ravynne Phelan

Trust in your creative process… know that you are a well of ideas and information, and that you can trust what comes to you. It is ok to be inspired by others work, but add your own unique flair in order to be truly successful. When you use your own original ideas, you create something brand new, even if it is based on ideas that have been done before. You are capable of creating something that reflects your own heart and soul, and people will love and respect you for it.

Listen to your creative process right now, as there is something important trying to come out. We may spend too much time comparing ourselves to others, and lose confidence by doing so. Now is the time to turn inwards, and let the creative juices flow. Pay attention to your dreams, they have special information for you at this time. Watch for signs and signals which lead you in new directions, as this will open doors and create new opportunities.

Anything is possible when you put your mind to it… add your heart and Soul and magic is inevitable. Do not hold back!

Namaste

Knight Of Wands

Knight Of Wands, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Knight Of Wands, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

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

Knight Of Wands: “This is the still moment before action. Hidden in the underbrush, this hunter is all but invisible. The angels of his body and the richness of his colouring camouflage him from all but the keenest of eyes. Holding still is the most difficult thing for him to do. A closer look reveals that his every cell is in motion, vibrating with energy so fast that he seems motionless. Humans would assume that, behind intently focused eyes, his mind is moving through thousands of possibilities, assessing and predicting what will happen next, but they would be wrong.

Inspired by primal instinct or perhaps divinely guided intuition, he changes from observer to hunter. In one swift, elegant gesture, an arrow flies through the air, hits its mark, and changes life to death. There is not even time for one last breath. What happens after, the giving of thanks and ritual ceremony of a departed noble soul, takes longer. Hunting, after all, is a complicated dance between prey and predator, between life and death. Sometimes the tempo is fast, and other times, slow and reverent.”

Divinatory Meaning Of This Card: “This Knight is motivated by two things: passion and energy. He likes to act quickly and is able to do so because he his certain of his decisions. This confidence is admirable and made all the stronger because he lives very much in the moment. Without worrying about what has happened or what might happen, he seems to have a disregard for consequences. But he decides based on what feels right in his heart in that moment. He cannot change that by imagining some unpleasant consequences. To change action based on the future is, to him, cowardice. Whatever is right must be done, and it best be done quickly.”*

~ By Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

This is a message of faith in action… it is about moving forward fearlessly, following your heart and using your instinct and intuition to do so. These are powerful tools, and they are much more accurate than relying on our ego driven minds. We humans love to weigh our options, count the “pros and cons” and try to use past experience to project the future outcome. We love to entertain thoughts of worst case scenarios. But right now, that mindset will do nothing but set us back; we will miss our opportunity while we ponder. Why sit on the fence for way too long, wasting precious time?

This is a time for precise action –  think Katniss Everdeen and her bow and arrow. When you are using a bow and arrow, you don’t stand there for hours holding the arrow at the ready, debating whether to fire; you find your mark and loose it, knowing that you can trust your aim. You rely on your instincts to show you the most direct path and you follow it.

Get out of your head and into your heart. Yes things are looking grave out there right now, but we are more powerful than ever. Use your power wisely, do not give in to the dark forces that are trying to hold us down through illusions of fear and hatred. Make a difference in each moment. Meet hate with love. Meet fear with love. Meet everyone and everything with love. Wield it like a powerful sword and defeat the darkness with the absolute conviction that Light is much more powerful.

Because it is.

Namaste

Blood Angel

Blood Angel:

“In the midst of the darkness,
a moon appeared with its brilliance.
Stepping down from the clouds,
It glanced at me.
Like a falcon
that hunts a bird and steals it away,
it captured me
and flew back to infinite space.
As I looked for myself,
I could not find me,
for my body had become all soul
in the tenderness of love.

The nine spheres of heaven
dissolved in that moon
as the shop of my existence
drowned in the sea of love.”

~RUMI

“Do you dare place a limit on how much life you can contain? I pour of myself into your heart and invite you to become nothing and everything, with me. Let us be the sunrise that greets the new day and the sunset that honours the dying of the day, in radiant glory. Let us be the angel of light arising from darkness and the starburst in the awakening heart of a human, beloved. Be the moon at the back of my heart and the sun at the front of my heart. Be wordless and wise. Let us have nothing that we know for certain and be content. Let us be all and let us be nothing. Let us be.”

“The oracle of the Blood Angel comes to you with a particular message; you are being given the gift of more life. You may experience this as growth, expansion, more energy, more life force or divine electricity circulating through your system. The Blood Angel understands that in the gift of greater life, which enables a soul to live more of its essence, becoming a more palpable divine presence upon this earth, there ware many unavoidable experiences. One of these is that there will be more sunsets to counter the increases in your sunrises! This is about balance. When opening up to receive more, one needs to empty out what has been to allow for a new influx of energy. It is not about an exchange of equal measure, for you will receive according to the great generosity of life itself, and thus even more shall be offered in the compensation for what you are willing to release. However, release must take place. Balance is the natural law. The sunset makes way for a time of night – that might be the darkness of grief, or the stirring of unknown places within that only reveal themselves in clarity the following morning. Being ready to endure the sunset and the night to become ready to receive the sunrise – and with it more life – is your divine task now.

Why is this coming to you? You are ready for it. You have outgrown what has been and it cannot satisfy your soul anymore. A part of you – your mind perhaps – may question whether or not you really want the change inherent in this oracle, divine gift or not! You may prefer that things remain the same, but what you are really wanting in that belief? Happiness? A sense of safety and security Love? Remember, that in any divine gift – no matter whether it seems to come at first through an obvious bestowal of grace, such as a wish coming true or a prayer being answered, or through a hidden grace of a loss of ending in our lives – there is always an offering of greater life within it. The Blood Angel tells you to not make yourself too small for what is happening in your soul and life now by holding onto what you know, or holding on when it is better to let go. It may not be easy, but you will gain more trust in the Divine, in you, in life, and great power and heavenly play can and will flow through your soul into the world. The Blood Angel invites you to accept the genius of life and allow it to flow through you, circulating your divine light even more abundantly into the world around you.

This oracle comes with a particular blessing of well being and vitality. You have perhaps become tired, or are well but seek to engage in new projects or practices that will stretch or challenge you. The Blood Angel brings you the blessing of whatever energy is required to expand into where life is leading you. What the Divine has instilled within your heart shall be financed with life force and energy so it may be brought to fulfillment. This is the sacred contract of human life. The journey shall be taken by the soul, and there will be challenges, and yet what is required for divine fulfillment will always be available.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

How much space do you take up in the Universe? And how much space does the Universe take up in You? It is time to expand, Dear One.

Breath deeper, slower, more mindfully. Take time to be in the present moment. Be here now, always.

Stretch up physically, take up more space; make more space. Open your arms wide and feel your heart open too. Expand your mind and expand your consciousness. There is so much more to be experienced. Open your palms up to the sky. Lean back if you are able, open your heart to the sky.

Invite in more and more Light. Fill every cell. Yes, you are more than capable. Do you remember?

Invite in more and more Love. Be that Love. Send it out into the world, healing. Yes, you came here for that, it is part of you.

In order to remember and step into the next phase repeat this mantra as often as possible throughout your day, particularly when meditating, outdoors in nature, deep breathing, or doing yoga:

I AM LOVE. I AM Light. I AM Healing. I AM Healed.

And so it is you step into your True Divine Purpose

Deliverance

Published October 11, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance: “The time of Deliverance is captured best in the image of a thunderstorm. As in nature, when there has been a long dry spell, and thunderheads are gathering on the horizon, the time for deliverance is at hand. Before a storm breaks, the accumulation of energy and tension can build to a point where it feels almost unbearable. Then, the sudden release of pent up energy in lightening and thunder delivers the earth from the oppressive conditions in the gusts of wind and cooling rains.

Awareness and grounding are especially needed at ta time like this, lest euphoria. The small, ordinary things of life still need careful and ongoing attention – and taking care of business is the best preventative medicine to ward off the let-down that can often follow such a high.

That is not to say it is inappropriate to rejoice or feel unburdened now – rather, enjoy and keep your feet on the ground. When a thunderstorm has passed, there is an uncommon freshness and sense of renewal in the air… and there is often a fair amount of debris on the ground that needs sorting through and cleaning up. It is vital now to identify and clear away any destructive thoughts or actions that might have created the heavy atmosphere that lead up to the storm. Taking time for reflection will strengthen your ability to learn from your actions and help you to gain the clarity not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. No matter what the sources of past tensions, it is now possible to observe them with less passion and greater equanimity. And it is from this detached perspective that you can best understand what steps you need to take to move forward.

A word of caution: ‘detachment’ is cool, free from emotional storms and drama, but it is not cold and unfeeling. In the aftermath of all the storms and interplay of energies, in life, it is always important to maintain a spirit of open-heartedness and compassion. Forgiveness is a healing force, and it is just as important to forgive ourselves as it is to forgive others. In fact, the two often go together. By letting go of the past and its turmoil, you will clear the ground for the lessons of Deliverance to take firm root in the soil and grow into a deeper and more profound liberation of the spirit.

If any hurts or misunderstandings remain unaddressed in the current situation, it is time to acknowledge them, do whatever is possible to heal the wounds or clear up the misunderstandings, and move on. There is a window of opportunity now to move quickly and decisively into a new order of things, and this is best accomplished with heartfelt gratitude for all the lessons learned.”

~ Ma Deva Padma

If you have recently gained perspective and walked away from a person, job or any situation which no longer served your highest good, congratulations for your courageousness. It is imperative however, that you look closely at the feelings associated with this particular person or situation. Is there any lingering hurt, negativity or resentment? Are any grudges being held against another person? Have you looked deep within to find compassion and forgiveness? It is time. This is how the healing will commence. This is the bridge to the next step in your journey.

Detach from the rawness and drama of the emotions associated with what is happening now, or has recently happened. Find a way to forgive both yourself and anyone else involved. Make peace with this situation and the outcome, even if it is uncomfortable now.

Focus on the healing process rather than the outcome, this is the deliverance you seek. Know that when you are loving, no matter what happened, and you see the lesson, you can set yourself free.

It is time to be truly free.

And so it is

Namaste

Salu: “Vitality, Health, Energy”

Artwork: Mirabelle, by Maxine Gadd

“You radiate strength, energy, exuberance, and life force – the kind that emanates from within, giving you an energetic force field that others respond to, but within which you dwell, radiant and well. With every day, every heartbeat, ever conscious moment – including all the wise decisions you have made on behalf of your wellbeing – you are beginning to develop  lasting strength, and your energy is potent, a force and a presence.

This card can also signify that it is time for you to truly take your wellbeing seriously – to connect deeply and respectfully with the body, to reshape it, reclaim it from all the cultural biases and all the voyeuristic judgments we are all subject to. It is time to develop support networks where your mind is valued, and healthy relationships are nurtured, developed, and sustained.

You must also do the work: sweat and discover just what you are capable of, and be sure also to change your nutrients – enhance the food you are eating, be sure to eat well, and acknowledge any unhealthy eating patterns you may have developed to self-nurture and comfort. All of this dedication and self-love will pay off in marvelous ways. you will radiate so much good, shining wellbeing that you will draw to you like-minded people who support this journey and attract more vitality, good fortune and love.”

~ By Lucy Cavendish

Salu is the Divine feminine counterpart to Barnabus. She is the compliment to his masculine energy; she is whole and she is free; as she is loving and receptive. She is asking that as we show ourselves love and acceptance, she encourages us to  nurture and care for ourselves, body, mind and spirit. What old habits can we release that no longer serve our Highest Good and true health? How can we shine our light more brightly?

Making simple choices in our lives concerning drinking more pure water, eating fresh fruits and veggies, cutting back on packaged foods, avoiding heavy meats and processed foods can make a world of difference to our wellbeing. Releasing old habits of toxic substances and refusing to put poisons, pesticides and chemicals into our bodies can be truly transformational. This can no longer be ignored; it is crucial for our ascension. We literally must elevate our density, our vibration and our Lightness of Being.

What can you change, today to make a difference to your health? It could be stress related, it could be diet, it could be that you are overdoing something. Only you know. This is personal, and it is a message just for you. Take it seriously. Release the pattern and step into a new way.

It could be breathing. It could be adding those valuable moments of silence. It could be quitting something that you know is hurting you in more ways than “just physical.”

Whatever it is, commit to making it a priority. You are worth it. You are starting this new chapter and there are just some things that cannot continue.

Bless and release.

Embrace wholeness and wellbeing.

You are your temple.

Namaste

Dee
