Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hearth, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Hearth: “Happiness in our hearts and homes.”

“The ancient Romans believed that every home had a heart and it was the hearth. Where the fire burned, the family gathered for sustenance, communication and protection. This concept was so important to the culture that there was a huge city hearth – the Vestal temple – where the fire of the home goddess, Vesta, burned forever without ever going out. This sacred flame was protected by the soldiers with their very lives should there be an invasion.

The place where the Goddess Vesta was honoured within every ordinary home was also the hearth, and it is where women prepared food and cooked. Some of the food was always offered back into the fire as an offering to Vesta for her blessing and protection. Often husbands were sent away on military duty for years on end and their wives at home were not just expected to keep the home and often the business running, but to wait for their husbands faithfully until their return. They prayed to Vesta to ensure their family members’ return and to keep the fires of love stoked. The saying: “Keep the home fires burning” was inspired by this practice.

Should the Hearth card appear in your divination, you are beings asked to look to your idea of what home and family is for you. Take the time to build up your ‘love’ fire and have it burning brightly. Make your relationships a priority. If there is conflict within your home and family, it is time to take concrete steps to address the issue for good. If you or a member of your family is away from home due to travel or work, know that protection is being given.”*

Your family may not be your flesh and blood; they may be those who have shown their loyalty and support to you through your life experiences and given you warmth, caring and love when you needed it most. Maybe these are your relatives, and maybe not, but regardless they are your true soul family, your tribe. These are the people to surround yourself with now. This is where your true home lies; as the saying goes, home truly is where the heart is.

We are so wrapped up in our lives; our responsibilities, our obligations. Bills to pay, places to get to, so much work to do it can seem never ending. So many distractions… the theme of late. Our smart phones, computers, tv’s, games and social media running our lives. The media toying with our emotions. Presidents of countries threatening each other. People killing each other. So many things to worry about.

So what can we do about all this?

We can create a cocoon of loving support and climb right in it. We can spend time with people in person… organically they call it now. You know, when you are actually in the same room with someone, speaking to them, looking into their eyes? Phone nowhere in site ideally of course. Those who love you for you. Those who make you laugh. Those who make you feel warm and fuzzy. Those who listen when you talk and hold space for where you are at. You know who they are, and if you do not, then it is time to find them.

Here in Canada it is Thanksgiving and I am grateful to have my family, healthy and happy; those of my own flesh and those who have adopted me along the way. There is always room for more love, more family, new friends and new love.

What are you grateful for today?

Hestia ~ Home

Hestia ~ Home

The Myth: “Hestia is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. Her name means hearth, the sacred fire, and Hestia is the virgin goddess of the sacred hearth. The hearth was at the center of families and tribes. Transferring fire from one sacred hearth to another represented continuing heredity.”

The Message: “This card is all about the warmth and the spirit of the home. It indicates that both home and family are especially important at this time.

Our families are not just our blood relatives, but they are the people who care for and nurture us in our lives and the people for whom we deeply love and care. Our connection to family reminds us of who we are and brings us back to our roots both culturally and personally, giving us a sense of continuity, of being a part of something greater than ourselves. Home is this feeling.

Home is also the ground we create for ourselves: a place of security, peace, and warmth. we rejuvenate ourselves in this place so that we may have the energy to operate in the world.

This is a time for connecting to the nourishing energy of home and family. You can be anywhere in the world to do this; all you need to do is connect to the space within yourself that allows you to feel strong, safe, and warm.

This is a time for creating the right ‘home’ space for yourself. If you feel that your home is contaminated, then you must do whatever is necessary to cleanse it. You cannot hope to operate from a clear space within your life or the world unless you are operating from a clear space within yourself and your home. If you have destructive personalities around you, you must create boundaries and remove these people from your immediate space.

This is also a time to connect to those who are your true heart’s family, to those who love you and remind you of who you truly are.”*

I have just recently had my home, myself and my children cleared by a friend of mine who’s life purpose is to assist in clearing lower vibrational and dense energies from spaces, people, chakras, etc. I am amazed at the difference this has made to our family dynamics (if you are interested in his services, please contact Leith at Rainbow Spiral Energy Spacekeeper directly). I was also inspired to clean and clear out all the old, take a few things down off the walls, donate things that we no longer need. In combination, it has made an enormous difference to generally improve the chi of the space, I feel fantastic and the kids have noticed a difference too. 

This is a great time to look at anything in your living space that does not hold a positive or higher vibrational energy. Get rid of anything that does not serve a purpose and just clutters up the space. It is also time to look closely at relationships and assess if there is anyone in your life right now who is doing more harm than good. All of these things have an effect on us, body, mind and spirit. If you are not sure, look for signs: does an object, space or person make you feel drained, frustrated, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you feel repelled or like you should flee the situation? Do you feel that you are being used or your energy is being sucked away? All these are signs that there is unhealthy or toxic energy in your presence.

It is also important to create boundaries with people who ask too much of you. Learn to say no, learn to walk away and learn that you are not here to “fix” someone, you can support them, but you are not responsible for their behaviour or their choices, (unless they are dependents such as disabled, elderly or small children and need your care and assistance of course). You can guide people or advise them, but you cannot compromise yourself for them. Creating healthy boundaries allows people to learn the lessons they are meant to learn in their own time. It also allows (or forces) them to take responsibility for their own behaviour. And you for yours.

Gahesha ~ Belonging

Daily Angel card: Belonging ~ Ganesha, from the Whispers Of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Belonging ~ Ganesha: “Learn to find security from within”

“In this card, Ganesha uses the mouse as his vehicle, which signifies his triumph over the ego. In Hindu mythology, the mouse symbolizes the ego, for the ego can eat away at all that is good and decent in a person.

Belonging seeks to solve the predicament of the ego’s own perceived separation. Since the ego has no conscious memory of its connection to others and to Source, you experience a ‘need’ to get out of seclusion by bonding with the people around you. These people can be your family, peer groups, or your community.

The ego is neither good nor bad, but simply a necessary part of you in this existence. The ego can manifest inclinations that are either more positive or more negative in nature. There are many positive aspect to belonging: you develop your ability to love, connect, bond, share, and care for others. You see yourself more clearly through the mirror of relationship. It is important in belonging that you not try to seek approval through others.

Through this card, Ganesha is here to help you focus on the positive feelings from being a part of a community. Learn to trust, ask for help, and to rely on others.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Again we are asked to strengthen our connection to community, as well as extending that same connection to others. We do this without expectation or hope of approval. We do it from the heart, from gratitude and from kindness and generosity. We find fulfillment in being a part of an intricate network of communication and sharing with others of like mind, on equal ground. We must get past the old ways of hierarchy, of people climbing their way to the top… of competition and segregation and exclusion.

We are the New Earth. We are a global community. We can be here for each other. Support each other. Love each  other and heal each other. We can build something so strong, so wise and so amazing that it will topple the old system. We can create a brand new way of living, of being in the world. Of creating a world of safety, of security, of abundance. This is healing.

This is huge, this call to community. It is absolutely essential that we learn to celebrate our differences and unique qualities while accepting the peaceful belief systems, cultures, religions, rituals and appearances of others. We don’t need to decide who is right and who is wrong, we only need to learn to accept them as they are, and have faith that they will find their way in the same way that we are finding our own.

If we can find a way to work together, this is what will create peace and ascension. This is what will heal us and heal the planet. But we must put away the lack mentality, the victim mentality, the aggressor mentality. We must create a circle, equal on all sides, not a pyramid where a select few stand on top of the masses.

Embrace your victory over the ego, which will allow you to truly belong.

Namaste

Rhodochrosite: “Self-Love”

The Master Crystal Deva Rho-Clor-El

“Embrace me, step into the Rose Ray of unconditional Light. Let your love for self light the world, freeing those that would seek outward. Feel the breath of self forgiveness on the back of your neck and let it warm the coldest parts of you into the eternal lights of B’ani-or-a. Gaze with me across the Lands into the sacred halls of Shamballa.”

I am with you Great One, you honor me with your presence. Together, we have built a Temple in your heart where we can grow the seeds of Universal Light into the ever serving Path Temple in your heart where we can grow the seeds of Universal Llight into the ever serving Path of Unconditional Love. Let it be expressed now in perfected action, for the betterment of all and sit confidently in the sacred throne is the physical body realized. Now I am Love.”

Rhodochrosite in Healing: “The most commonly found Rhodochrosite is a beautiful peach-pink mineral that has white bands running through it. In some outstanding specimens, the white bands form concentric circles and in highly crystallized states in can appear a deep, clear red colour.

The colored rays present in this stone, powerfully link the Crown, Heart, and Sacral Chakras together in sacred communication, delivering many of this stone’s most important properties, including its simple purpose as the Stone of Self-Love. Rhodochrosite opens the heart under the guidance of the spirit and carries their united energies down to the Sacral. This manifests new love and belief in self, opening deep, profound healing that is empowered through forgiveness. This potent combination will release deep pain and hurt often related to sexuality and abuse.

When one is actively harboring avoidance and denial about their surrounds in life Rhodochrosite empowers them to face life, make decisions and accept the changes that result directly through the Heart.

This stone can be work with in meditations to find a soul’s purpose and aid in the locating of other members of one’s soul family, usually delivering information in the Dream state, especially when empowered with Jade. Rhodochrosite is a contact stone for the Archangel Mary and will facilitate communication with any of the female Ascended Masters, including the Lady of the Fountain.

At a more physical level, Rhodochrosite is useful for Internal infections, Cancer, Thyroid imbalance, Irritable bowel syndrome, Digestive imbalances, Uncontrolled visions and Troubled sleep, such nightmares.”

Your Healing Journey Today: “In the presence of Rhodochrosite on this day, you are being asked to take a step into Self-Love, take some time out to do the things that you love individually, doing these things allows us to retain the passion we need to live life to its fullest. In the coming days you will often be learning the true lessons of compassion and forgiveness, where you will remember that your ability to recognize traits in others simply means that once, or possibly still, they lived in you. On this important journey into the heart, have faith in yourself and trust in the world, let go of attachments and remember beyond all things, each of us chooses and creates our path, Self-Love is our most personal and important responsibility.”

Affirmation: “I love myself”

Keywords to help in reading the cards: “Self-Love ~ Unconditional Love ~Sexual abuse ~Crown, Heart and Sacral Chakras ~ Compassion ~ Self Identification ~ Deep Pain and Hurt of the Heart ~ Family ~ Relationships ~ Avoidance and Denial ~ Digestive System ~ Archangel Mary ~ Lady of the Fountain ~ Lord Sananda.”*

~by Justin Moikeha Asar

To Love ourselves is to love the Divine. To see ourselves for who we are, without our masks, without hiding and without holding back is to see how far we have come in this lifetime. When we can forgive ourselves our perceived mistakes and accept what is right here, right now, we can transform. When we can stand true to who we really are, we can transcend. We have everything we need within us to create the life that we long for. And it all starts with Love and acceptance.

We may hide aspects of ourselves that we feel ashamed of. We may feel guilty about the consequences of past decisions. Maybe we have not always held the intention that our actions be for the Highest Good of all. But all that is changing now as the illusions fade all around us. Only the truth remains.

We are the seeds of the Universe; we are the expression of the Divine in all it’s miraculous forms. When we look into our Souls, we can see the Light of Love residing there. When we open our hearts, we can see it with others. When we see the Light in All There Is, we become one with that All.

Rhodochrosite will help you move forward into this pure Rose ray of Divine Light. A deep connection to Mother Mary. A gentle opening of the Heart. Healing of the Emotional wounds. The ability to move forward with grace and ease.

And so it is.

Namaste

The Ancestor Of Guidance

Published February 10, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman's Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ancestor Of Guidance, from The Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The Ancestor Of Guidance: “I am The Ancestor Of Guidance. I remember you and so I watch over you. I guide your steps as you embark on your life path, and counsel you as you make important decisions about the direction you will take. Because I am of your family  – however ancient – I know well the deepest places of your heart and soul, and stand ready to assist you in discovering the path you need to follow.”

The Ancestor Of Guidance” The mighty stag with its branching antlers is one of the most powerful images to be found on cave walls. Here it represents the all important act of guidance. In an ancestral context this guidance is far more profound than merely showing a physical path: it is the guidance of our footsteps on an inner journey of the spirit, orienting us in the right direction and ensuring that we take no wrong turnings or decisions. The Ancestor Of Guidance oversees the steps we choose on our path through life, and counsels us from the all-encompassing wisdom of the Spirit World.”

Interpretations Of This Card: “Profound Wisdom ~ Direction ~ Aspiration ~ Seeking New Ways ~ Companionship Of Family On Your Journey ~ Realizations ~ Echoes Of Ancient Paths”*

~ by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The illusion of separation is falling away and we are able to feel, if not quite yet see, our deep connection to All That Is. We walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, and realize that our perceived problems are problems that have been navigated many times, over many lifetimes before. Knowing that there is no challenge too large to navigate our way around. Knowing that all who have gone before us have faced these very same challenges and survived. Knowing that those who have gone before us have learned, and even possibly even thrived, from the experience… soothes our Souls. Although we may not know all there is to know about our ancestors on paper, we can feel them close to us if we spend time connecting to the depths of their energies.

If you wish to communicate with the ancients, ask the Ancestor of Guidance to open your connection to this well of Divine Wisdom. Meditation to drum beats, time outside in the forest, or a dedicated yoga practice can enhance your receptivity to the guidance coming through. Set the intention to open up to the grounding energy of the Earth, and see yourself as a conduit for Spirit to come through you from the Universe. Imagine yourself as the mighty Oak tree: “as above, so below” … know that You are the magical connection between Mother Gaia and the entire Cosmos.

Mindfully working with the elements will also assist you in achieving a stronger connection. Earth, Wind, Water, Fire and Ether are timeless ally’s on your journey. Our ancestors have felt the deep resonant heartbeat of the Earth through many bare feet. They have breathed deeply of the vital and magical element of Air. They have been embraced by the life giving properties of water. They have paid their respect and deep reverence to Fire. Ether is the lifeblood of our very cells, as it was theirs, cycling through the ages, generation after generation.

Approach the ancients with curiosity and respect and consider incorporating sacred ritual, asking to come into co-creation with these powerful ally’s. Know that there is nothing they don’t understand, that although time passes and technology takes over, their energies are timeless, wise and true.

Namaste

Wolf ~ Guardian

Wolf ~ Guardian, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

 

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

Wolf ~ Guardian: “You are safe and protected at all times.”

“You are protected at all times. Trust that! The physical, emotional, and psychic barriers you have erected to protect yourself from past hurts and wounds are simply no longer needed. You have moved beyond your need for the illusion of safety that these habitual defenses have provided. It is time to trust that Spirit is always available to aid you in your protection when you really need it.

Relaxing these barriers, and knowing that they are accessible if you really need them, leaves you open to love, both giving and receiving – especially to the ones you are closest to. Do not hold back, clutching to some obscure fear that others will not love you back. Be outrageous in expressing your affection for those you love, and know that your family ultimately extends beyond any lines drawn by heredity, race, or species. All of us beings on this planet are family – whether human, animal, or plant – and the more you love, the more love finds you. Take good care!

Additional Associations For This Card: Family ~ Loyalty ~ Friendship ~ Teacher.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

This card is the perfect mirror to yesterdays card. It is safety in numbers; being supported, loved and provided for by your “pack” while feeling safe and secure. It is being part of a tightly knit community or family, while also being able to be yourself. It is the contrast between the family dysfunction you are learning from and the family dynamic you thrive within.

The most important part of this card is the second to last line: “All of us beings on this planet are family – whether human, animal, or plant – and the more you love, the more love finds you.” Meditate on this as it is absolute truth. Your support, your “family” is all around you, all the time. It is not necessarily the family you were born into, but the one you have created with close, like minded friends. It is those who accept you no matter what. It is those who are practicing Unconditional love and Christ Consciousness.

This fifth dimensional family is open to everyone, and some are already there. Many more will see the opportunity to be a part of something larger and trade in outmoded behaviors of lack, competitiveness and judgment to step in to being part of the global community of Unconditional Love and acceptance. This is where the true healing begins.

Know that, whether we realize it or not, we are all part of this big, loving, wonderful family. The family of Gaia; our sacred Mother Earth who has been caring and providing for us for an eternity. As we embrace our new sense of awareness, and our connection to her, to each other, and to All That Is, we will heal ourselves as we heal her.

One big, happy, loving, safe family.

Protected at all times.

Namaste

Family: “You were born into your family for a reason and a purpose, just as there is reason and a purpose for experiencing all you have experienced to date. Yet, like most of us, you probably believe the myth that all family members should all get along and always be nice to each other. Other families always seem nicer. The truth is that every family experiences similar dynamics in one way of another. Your family is your greatest teacher. every family member will hold at east one trait that you do not like, This fact sets the perfect environment for us to learn to love unconditionally. Later in life you will discover that every perceived negative comes with a positive attached to it. True love often comes with a positive in ways and forms that we initially fail to recognize. Yet with the passing of time you will realize that beneath our individual facades there is only love. Love comes in many forms and it may not always be kind. Reflect on this for it will help you let go of any resentment you have towards your family or a family member. “*

– Toni Carmine Salerno

There is a famous saying that “we can’t pick our relatives” but yet, is this really true? What if we choose them on a Soul level; before we even come to this physical plane of existence? What if we have made agreements with them, Soul contracts? What if, as they are our biggest teachers; we are also theirs? Then it would seem that the more challenge present, the more profound the lesson.

There may be lessons of unconditional love, of self-worth, acceptance, or of trusting in one’s own capabilities for both sides. These can come in varying forms of challenges which must be conquered in order to progress to the next level of consciousness. If we can separate ourselves from the drama, we can uncover the lesson. Then we can incorporate gratitude and forgiveness on a Soul level, allowing both parties to move forward, releasing resentment and anger that may have been holding us back.

Sometimes there is a pattern in the way that we are treated by others. This is because we aren’t getting the lesson! When we see patterns emerge, with us as the consistent factor, we know that something is going on that creates this need for reinforcing the lesson. When we find ourselves in a new relationship only to relive the old pattern with a completely different partner, we must look closely at what is being presented to us. We have the power to break the cycle, but in order to do so, the cycle must first be acknowledged and accepted.

Look closely at your most intimate and family relationships. What is the lesson? Are you receptive to acknowledging this lesson? And are you ready to release it? Look deeply within yourself to find the courage to receive it with gratitude and acceptance.

And then, you can set yourself free.

Namaste
