Nine Of Swords:

“Stormcrows herald impending dissolution
with voices cawing raucous absolution
round and round and spiraling ever near
one future sought – one future feared.”

“The funnel of the sky stretches up to the heavens, an ominous tower of storms with only a tiny glimmer of hope lighting the eye of turmoil high above. “Come to me, come with me,” the voice of a stormcrow whispers to him from nearby. “Let me guide you through.” With anxious eyes, he gazes upwards, away, oblivious to the proffered guidance through the dark night of the soul. He clutches a sheathed sword close for security, though he could easily grasp its bright blade aloft to light the way. But he is ignorant of that beacon he holds so tight, or perhaps too weak hearted and tremulous to wield it.

He suffers from anguish. The swords tattooed upon his breast are pinpricked markings of the regrets he experiences. He is tormented by inner fear, anxiety, guilt, and uncertainties in the night. He is a being of the air – his wings should carry him aloft, and the sky should be open and expansive and a world of freedom. Instead, it feels like a trap closing its jaws upon him with the howling winds of the approaching storm. And yet, if he were to just cast aside those doubts, he could be as free as the stormcrows that spiral in untroubled arcs above.

The Nine Of Swords swirls with inner turmoil. It is a moment of vulnerability, with the soul laid bare to its own demons. Guilt and fear lock muscles into immobility. Understand the source of those fears; learn what they mean and where they stem from. Know that the strength to break free of those shackles lies within one’s own heart.”*

This is a message about facing your fears, releasing yourself from feeling stuck by your circumstances, and daring to create something new. Fear is holding you hostage in more ways than you realize. Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Vibrationally. Look at it closely. Where is the fear coming from? Is it so ingrained that you are used to it? Are you feeling like a victim of circumstance in your own life?

It’s time to create something new. Release the old scars, the regrets, the pain of the past. It is time to soar above the drama and the limited perceptions of what is possible for you. And the only way to do this is to take full responsibility for everything that has happened in your life and learn from it. See the lesson and let it all go. Focus your energy elsewhere, away from the old habits and ways of being in the world.

The birds in this card represent freedom as they soar up towards the portal of light and infinite opportunity. He is so aware of the pain of the past it is literally engraved on his chest; yet he fails to notice his own big, beautiful and powerful wings, where his guide stands trying to get his attention; to offer support. Yet he looks the other way. He thinks he needs a sword to fight his way through life, yet what he needs instead is to trust in his ability to rise above it all and create something new.

Look at your own life. Where are you being held back by the past? Are you seeing the Light being offered to you now? Where can you shed the old pain and the weight of past regrets and mistakes and find renewed strength and courage to release all the old and embrace a new lightness of Being? Trust in yourself and your own big beautiful, powerful wings to take you where you need to be. For the Highest Good Of All.

And so it is

Namaste

Hadraniel ~ Love

Published November 30, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hadraniel ~ Love, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hadraniel ~ Love, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Hadraniel ~ Love: “To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.” ~ Alphonse de Lamartine

“Eternal love alone satisfies the need of the soul. Hadraniels’ mission is to awaken your memory of this love. When experienced passionately, these three Ascension Attitudes (Love, gratitude, surrender), become an invincible force for healing.

The predominant feeling among the angels is love of God. The predominant feeling among humans is fear. Even if you generally feel happy and loved, fear is often hiding beneath the surface. Fear of the cruelty and pain of life can form a cage around the heart with bars stronger than steel. Ask Hadraniel to help you become aware of any fear that prevents you from receiving love. If necessary, cry your heart out over the pains of life. When you feel deeply enough, your heart will break open. In those precious moments, place your attention on your love for God.

A deep and consuming love is on the other side of pain. If you have courage and a passionate desire to find God, your pain will turn into ecstasy when you meet the Divine. One way is through a surge of Transformational Energy that enters your body. This hot energy moves through you, burning away all that blocks you from the flow of love. If you allow the energy to take over, your body may do a dance of ecstasy, your head and body may rock gently from side to side, your hips may sway or your whole body may shake vigorously.

It may seem like there is too much energy and you don’t know what to do! Don’t be afraid. Know that this energy is good. Keep your feelings and thoughts focused on God and ask for love to fill you. Plead with God as if your life depended upon it. Demand that God reveal Divine Spirit to you and it will be done!

Love creates the greatest source of energy. Experience the power of anger, fear, and resentment in the privacy of a safe place, continuing to work through them until they transform into love. As your heart opens to God, you will feel freed from fear. You will discover a new level of self-love. Your relationships will take on an amazing depth. You will see love pouring from the eyes and the hearts of many. Compassion will well up form your soul as you feel the desires, the heartbreak and the yearnings of all you meet. Then you will realize how many angels walk this Earth and how much we need one another to return Home. Love is all that matters.”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

The biggest shift we can make, individually and collectively is Love. As the polarities stretch precariously apart, we can pull things back together with Love. As we are conditioned to fear, as we are warned and threatened and bombarded with all that is wrong in the world, we can meet it with Love.

Love is the greatest healing tool we have access to. It is the only way that we can bring things back into balance and raise the consciousness of humanity to match that of the ascending planet. It means stepping out of destruction and chaos, and into acceptance and connection.

First we must do this within ourselves. Bring together the polarities, the yin and yang; male and female energies. We must release the struggle and the pain, all the past lessons and trauma. We must move beyond the victim mentality into something new: sovereignty, empowerment, peace and harmony. Only once we find this within us can we create a different reality. It’s all about frequency; what are you vibrating to?

How can you allow more love into your life? What aspects of your shadow side are still in need of healing? How can you expand from the heart center, be more accepting of yourself and others, transform your view of the connection between All That Is and your place in the Universe?

To bring more love into your life you must Be that Love. You must mindfully create something new. You must commit to changing frequencies, allowing more Light in and releasing all the old fear based thoughts and belief systems. Treat yourself with Love, body, mind and spirit. No more self-destructive habits, no more angry fearful thoughts. Only love. And if there are things you just cannot love, change them, you are absolutely capable of making the necessary adjustments.

As quoted from above: “Love is all that matters.”

Be that Love.

Namaste

The Devil

Published September 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Devil, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Devil, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

The Devil: “She feels the walls closing in on her, oblivious to the fact that she is not completely surrounded – there is the wide world open to either side! The skies cry with songs of beauty and freedom, but she tucks her head down to hide in fear, bound within walls and shackles, though it is only a thin thread that binds her, red as her hert’s blood, and the key is so close, so close. Look up! You wish to cry at her. Raise your eyes and look around you!

But her ears are deaf to any voice but that of the Devil. All she hears and feels is the Devil dancing above her, diving her, goading her, pressing down upon her. Tap tap tap goes the dancing of his hooves in a merry, mocking rhythm. Tap tap tap in the seductive patterns of entrapment of the willing. Tap tap tap he dances, and he laughs with the knowledge that it is with such ease he can hold a vibrant spirit captive.

Look up! Faintly, the voice pierces through the stones and seeps up into her body, and she reaches out.”

Meaning Of The Devil Card: “Losing independence, addiction and enslavement, caught up on the material realm, overindulgence, choosing to stay in the dark, pleasures, lust and desire. Feeling hopelessness close in and limit the options. The Devil plays on your desires with a masterful touch. Break free from the puppeteer’s strings by looking beyond the material blockades and temptations.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Swap out the devil for the ego; the busy, worrying, doubting, limiting mind. Holding the heart hostage, as per usual. Doing a dance of victory over your head after scaring you out of following your dreams.

Maybe you just feel like giving up. I know I feel like that sometimes… sometimes or possibly more often than I’d might like to admit.

This ascension process, it’s not easy. There is so much coming up that needs to be cleared, released, transformed and transmuted. It can be exhausting. I am no better at it than anyone else, no higher or lower. Just processing it one day at a time like you are. There is no need for a guru to take you through the process, for we all end up at the same place in the end, traveling the path as only we can. We can ask for assistance or advice, and then we can decide whether or not it resonates with us. That’s the great thing about good will.

But there are an abundance of gurus out there right now. Many cashing in on the process of leading you through it. Beware of all that. Tune inwards instead. It’s free and readily available. Trust yourself.

Stand up and brush yourself off. Then take back your heart. Decide to listen to it from now on; it will guide you like no other. Yes, you will still make mistakes, and you will still get hurt every now and then, particularly if you choose not to listen closely to it’s whispers.

But know that your body is fully equipt to lead you on. You have everything you need to get there. No one else can do it for you. No one else can take it away from you either. You make your choices. You read what you want and take of it what seems real and right to you. You set your intentions for the highest good of All. You use your heart center to weight your options. You banish the fear and take the chances.

It’s all you.

Kick that Devil right out of the picture.

There’s not trap, it’s all an illusion.

Spread your wings. Put your crown back on where it belongs.

You got this.

Namaste

Goblins

Goblins, from The Enchanted Map Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goblins, from The Enchanted Map Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Goblins: “Fear is an illusion. Choose love today. Forgive yourself and others.”

“Goblins are born when you are wounded and something essential is lost in that experience. From that point on, as you forget your wholeness, they remain with you in the shadows. There, they will remind you of what brought them into being, by mimicking your own voice, tricking you into believing that you are not worthy, victimized, or unlovable. They hold you hostage through low self-worth, self-sabotage, and the feeling that you are lacking what you need.

If Goblins pay you a visit, know that they represent the shadow of your own self, or someone else’s, and that the are leading you into a potentially reactive situation. A Goblins card’s appearance is an opportunity for growth, however, and a signal that you must love yourself. No human is without flaws. The Goblins’ message is that you must release resentments and negative self-talk. Within you is the spark of the Divine. Ask Spirit to help heal you. Miracles can and do happen. Let go of the negativity.

If this card comes to you as challenger: “It is often difficult to deal with someone else’s issues, because they impact your own. No one is perfect, but in this case, you are particularly vulnerable to being manipulated. Do not take this world personally. When the Goblins card arrives as your challenger, it is a sign to step back with detachment. Do not let other people’s “stuff” lead you into reacting from an old wound. Love yourself unconditionally. Set boundaries and your Goblins will fall asleep. Love is the only answer.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Goblins, goblins, goblins…. How do we banish those pesky beasts who lurk in the corners of our minds, telling us that we are not good enough, reminding us that last time we tried this, something went wrong. How do we banish them forever, refusing to buy into their fear mongering, their pessimistic attitudes and their focus on that “worst case scenario.” We don’t need Goblins any more!!!

Firstly, coax them out of the corners and get a good look at that sandwich board they are wearing, or the protest sign they are holding. What does it say? Where did that message come from? Was it a childhood trauma? A rejection? A poor choice or past mistake? Tell them to pass it over, you will take care of it from now on.

Take a good look at that sign. What do these words really mean to you? How can you transform the message into something you can work with in the future? Go ahead and tear up that old sign, it’s time for it to go. Tell the Goblin he’s free now too, off with him, good riddance!

Now for the fun part! You get to re-write your sign, and you get to hold it high, yourself. Seriously. Grab a piece of paper, doesn’t have to be big. Write the flip side of that great big fear on it… for example:

I AM worthy of Love

I AM financially independant

I AM successful

I AM healthy and whole

I AM fearless

I AM free

Whatever resonates with YOU. Place it somewhere you can see it, like on your fridge, or on the corner of your computer or your bathroom mirror and read it outloud every time you walk past… even if it is under your breath. If you are shy, place it in your pocket instead. Use this message to banish the Goblins and make new ones as needed.

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Enlightenment, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman, Illustrated by Gretchen Raishch-Baskin

Enlightenment ~ Topaz: “If I seek peace, I must embrace my fears”

The Legend: “Topaz is a renowned spiritual teacher. People travel to hear his wisdom. He is journeying up a mountain to seek private counsel with the Great Servant when a young boy stops him. The boy asks, “If enlightenment is to be found in my own mind, how do I get there?” The moment before he disappears into the mist, Topaz replies “Through your fears.”

Inspiration: “At this time your journey is more important than you destination. Remember, if you face your fear, you will grow stronger. Relief awaits.”

Personal Inquiry: “My thoughts always drive my choices. How can I use my thoughts to heal myself?”

Key Ideas: “Path to enlightenment; the reluctant sage; taking time alone to connect; trusting your intuition; needing solitude; time for reflection.”

Key Words: “Support, Courage, Confidence”

Meditation: “Write down three fears, then close your eyes. Imagine these fears staying with you always. Then imagine them, one by one, walking in faith alongside  you. Stride through the Garden of Fear and allow them to sty behind. What is more painful, keeping your fears or releasing them? The choice is yours.”*

~ By Tori Hartman

Have you ever stopped to ponder the saying “There is nothing to fear except fear itself”? Have you ever stopped to wonder if fear is like a habit that we have taken on? One that stops us from moving forward, like most bad habits do; one that keeps us from getting enough sleep, wrecks our peace of mind, and generally causes more trouble than it’s worth?

How many times have you been forced to live through your worse fears coming to fruition? And yet, here you are, reading this, so I am going to assume you survived it and are here to tell the tale. So my question to you is: Did worrying a whole lot about it or staying frozen in fear help you when you were in the thick of it? Did it prevent you from having to live through each moment? Or could you have faced it regardless of all that extra energy you put out on it. Have you ever wondered if maybe it would actually have been nice to just go through it the one time, instead of all those other times in your head first?

I know it might be tempting fate to ask “What’s the worst that can happen” so let’s just start out by scratching that one, like forever. How about asking the Universe “What is the absolute best outcome for everyone involved here in this situation?” and go from there? Why be conditioned to always expect the worst? Maybe (well, definitely but since we are releasing fears I don’t want to scare anyone!!) if we put it out there that things could go totally off the rails… they will. And maybe, if we release all that limiting thinking and decide to project the best possible outcome for the highest good of all, we can become a magnet to that instead.

Go ahead and practice. Start with the little stuff and work up from there. Try smiling and laughing and dancing while you do it, it speeds up the process and gets those amazing results pouring in just a little bit faster.

And so it is… not scary at all

Namaste

Resistance

Resistance, from the Gospel Of Aradia, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Resistance, from the Gospel Of Aradia, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Resistance: “Obstantia”

When you feel resistance, your intention is alerting you to something that requires your attention. We often resist when something seems unethical or unjust. Are you resisting exactly what you need as a way to punish yourself or keep yourself small? Stop procrastinating.

The bell of resistance,

It tolls inside my head,

And floods my body through.

It awakens me, my fears to shed.

 

It starts with a small stone,

The one hard-hearted,

The small push back

Into places uncharted.

Many of us do not consciously consider our values until they are tested or challenged. Then we feel a quite natural resistance to the event or person who has crossed what we see as an ethical line or who has acted contrary to a principle we hold dear. This kind of resistance is a message and offers us the chance to take action, to right the wrong doing or address the violation of our boundaries.

Resistance can be hard to shift if it is directly linked with our values and in reality, it may well be our values that need to change. We may need to understand that we are being inflexible in our views and that we need to take a less extreme approach sometimes for our happiness and the happiness of others.

Procrastination is born of fear and is another kind of resistance – a resistance to moving forward with something, even if the change may benefit us.

In Aradia’s time, real tyranny existed and many resisted the iron-handed oppression that was so prevalent. Whilst we may never have experienced such a dire situation, in the face of so much cruelty and repression, sometimes the only way to exert influence was to quietly curse someone in power. If this is someone’s only hops, their only kind of power, we may understand this kind of act. Rebelling against a negative status quo is an act of the brave and is something that is very much part of our human history. Things cannot be changed without some kind of resistance to “what is.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Something in your life requires your immediate attention and action is necessary in order to move forward. Only you know what this is. Yes, that… whatever popped into your head just now, that is most likely it. Have you been avoiding it? Feeling stuck or too indecisive? Well this is the sign you have been waiting for! Move forward now!

Sometimes we sit on the fence for too long, weighing our options, feeling a measure of safety in stagnancy. We feel that if we stay on the fence we are leaving our options open, but what we are actually doing is missing options that we are unaware of being that we are stuck up there on that fence. Shift your perspective, take life by the horns and get in the game, before you miss out!

Opportunity has been knocking, it’s time to hop down off that fence and open the door.

You will be glad you did!

Namaste

The Goblin ~ The Wounded Human Ego

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Goblin ~ The Wounded Human Ego, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron Reid

The Goblin ~ The Wounded Human Ego ~ The Guides of Faery

“When the Goblin appears on your path, your plans are, or are about to go, awry. The Goblin wants to lead you astray and whispers the negative spell of fear, anger, resentment, self righteousness, arrogance, selfishness, greed, gluttony, procrastination and addiction.

When the Goblin appears, it is time  to stop what you are doing and check your motives. Are you coming from an ego centered place? Are the circumstances in your life triggering unresolved past issues that still need healing?

Now is the time for self evaluation and taking inventory, before you take another step. The Goblin represents the wounded ego and its influence. Dark, repressed areas of the psyche get triggered… either in you, or warning you of a dynamic between you and someone else.

Do nothing. Stay still, send loving energies to yourself and others, and remember the Divine connection in all things. The Goblin will disappear and lose power when you focus on love and fairness.”*

~ By Colette Baron Reid

Although this may seem like a negative message, it is not, it is simply a reminder that we are human, and as humans, we are reactive to what is going on around us. When we are feeling hurt, we often feel like we want to hurt back; get revenge on those who have hurt us… hurt them more than they hurt us. This could create a snowball effect, one person hurting another, who goes to hurt the next and so on… yet it can very easily be turned around. What is most important is that we keep people and situations, and the feelings they stir within us, in perspective. And also that we stay mindful and have compassion for those around us who may be more reactive today. It is quite possible that this has nothing to do with us and we just need to walk away and let it go instead of  getting wrapped up in unnecessary drama!

When people come to teach us a lesson, it is often one we are resistant to learning. We may take on the roll of the victim, feeling that this person is abusing us in some way. We may spend so much time entangled with the situation that we quickly lose perspective. Sometimes we even break away from that particular person, only to find ourselves in an even more exaggerated, yet extremely similar situation with another person. This is where patterns are created and we can fall in to the vortex of repeating them over and over until we finally…. FINALLY get the message! If only we would just learn the lesson and move forward! It would be so much simpler in the long run. But there is nothing simple about humans, that much is certain.

Of you are experiencing a power struggle in any area of your life, either internally or externally with another person, look closely at what is actually going on. Ask yourself the question: ‘How can I love more?’ See the light in the other person connecting to the light in you. Feel the connection. Own your part. Send them blessings and walk away from the struggle, giving yourself time to breathe. Know that in some way, this is making you stronger. Bless this lesson. Embrace it with love.

And your problems in this situation will fade away. Or not, but you will feel a whole lot better either way!

How can we love more?

Namaste
