Sobek and Horus: “Reconciliation of Opposites; Forgiveness and Understanding”

“Sobek and Horus represent two powerful opposing psychic forces found in all human beings – the old and the new parts of each of us. They appear together as adversarial allies to hep us reconcile opposing forces and create harmonious, balanced union within.

The crocodile god, Sobek, represents strength and fortitude, fertility and rebirth. From Sobek, we inherited the reptilian brain that contains the ancient evolutionary patterns. It rules the autonomic functions that have kept us protected to grow forward.

Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris. In this oracle he comes into maturity and prepares to step into his full power as the enlightened ruler. All pharaohs are called Hours. As a hawk headed diety, he is associated with higher mental and spiritual functions.

If you have drawn this card, it is time to take a deeper look at the energetic desire to evolve while stepping into a new way of being. You may experience a sense of conflict from the old self. In truth, it is willing but needs to know that what is of value will not be lost and that mistakes will not be repeated. This is an opportunity to take stock of the newer self that wants to evolve and step forward, and of the old self that wants to make sure you have a solid foundation to stand on.

Drawing this card indicates that resolution is afoot. If there is a conflict in your life or something in the way of your forward or upward motion, meditating with these two seemingly opposing forces can bring you to a deeper understanding of a relationship or situation. It can also open the way for forgiveness. If you bump into that part of yourself that is closed to forgiveness, stay open: it is one of the most potent keys for resolution.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

The only way to truly move forward is to release all the old. Old thought patterns and conditioning. Old ways of thinking and of being in the world. This may involve great changes, releasing people and situations; even moving house,  changing jobs or going in a completely different direction.

In order to do this, you will have to forgive those who were placed in your life to teach you lessons that have made you uncomfortable or caused you any pain or trauma. This is not always easy to do, yet if we don’t release them from the grip of our pain, it is us who eternally suffer. It does not mean that you condone the behaviour, it means that you forgive and move on so that you do not attract these same patterns or lessons any more. You are done with all that.

See yourself standing in front of the person you need to release. If there are more than one, then do one at a time. Look this person right in the eye and tell them: “I forgive you, I release you.” Then feel yourself quite literally sprouting wings and spreading them wide. See yourself fly right through the sacred space created by Sobek and Horus on the card image as they hold safe space for you. Look up and see yourself fly high above the person you are releasing, looking down upon them standing there alone, getting smaller and smaller as you soar high above. Allow yourself a couple of deep breaths and take in the idea that you are now completely free of this burden you have been carrying. You are light, you are free and you are able to detach from all the drama that this person has caused you. You never have to fly back down to them and experience this pain again. If you choose to have this person stay in your life, set the intention that your relationship with them will start anew, with you being fully empowered and you will never lose your freedom to them, or anyone else, ever again. Know that Sobek and Horus will always provide this safe space for you to forgive and release all those who are holding you back in your life or causing you any pain.

And so it is

Namaste

Ishtar ~ Boundaries

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ishtar ~ Boundaries, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ishtar ~ Boundaries: “Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your energy”

Message From Ishtar: “A sincere desire to give of service is wonderful. However, there is a distinction between giving of yourself and giving up yourself. If you feel tired, guilty, or resentful while helping others, then you are not truly helping them, are you? You are injecting poisonous energies into the relationship, and then no one benefits. Step back and reassess the situation. As you respect your own boundaries, others will begin to recognize and respect them within you, and within themselves as well. Now that is a healthy behavior to teach others!”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You are giving too much. Become more assertive. Do not do things out of guilt or obligation.”

About Ishtar: “She has been worshiped and invoked since ancient Babylonian times as the embodiment of Venus’s womanly energy. Ishtar represents the Divine feminine in all of her aspects, including nurturing, mothering, sensuality, fertility, healing, protection, and wisdom. As a multidimensional goddess, Ishtar does not tire of helping the men and women who call upon her for assistance.” *

Boundaries are so important and it is imperative that you work on yours now. You cannot let your energy be sapped by others, or by spreading yourself too thin. This is a powerful time of manifestation, and you will become a beacon of light to those who wish to have what you are creating. It is important to know the difference between inspiring and empowering others, and being taken advantage of. Not everyone wants to put in all the hard work that you have put in; maybe they are stuck in “victim mode” and believe that circumstance has robbed them of their true birthright. Maybe there is someone who is jealous or envious of what you have, and rather than working hard to create the same for themselves, they seek to take what is yours.

Do not let these energies scare you, and remember that you are always in complete control of your own energy. Protect yourself by creating boundaries, both physical and energetic. You can physically distance yourself from people who do not resonate with you, who are negative towards you, have toxic behaviors or who are always blaming or complaining. Even if you feel guilty for taking a step back, this is exactly what you must do at this time. In fact, by doing so, you are actually doing them a favour – instead of enabling, you are empowering them by forcing them to tackle their own lives instead of focusing on yours.

Energetically, you can use protective stones, such as obsidian, black tourmaline and labradorite (to name just a few) to protect your energy. These stones can be worn or carried to create an energetic barrier between you and others. Be sure to cleanse them regularly. You can also create crystal grids in you home to protect it and keep the energy positive and uplifting, or place crystals such as clear quartz or apophyllite in the corners of a room.

Poseidon

Poseidon: “Flow”

“Expect a greater flow of creativity, ease or prosperity. This card is a siren call to protect and enjoy the stunning oceans of the oceans of the world.”

“As gentle as a lagoon and as destructive as a tsunami, Poseidon is one of the greatest gods of the Greek pantheon. One of the sons of Cronus, he rules the sea. His brothers, Zeus and Hades, rule the sky and the underworld, respectively.

He was beloved and feared at the same time. Sailors in the ancient world often made sacrifices to him before a voyage, and fishermen took part in great seasonal rites to appease him. Some rites were as straightforward as singing to him in a storm, while some sailors and fishermen traced his trident upon the shore before entering the sea. Yet other rites were bloodthirsty, matching this god’s violent power.

The essential, defining feature of water is its flow. Poseidon controls the flow aspect with great power. Call upon him when you need a flow of anything in your life, but in particular creativity, abundance, fertility or prosperity.

In modern times, we need to protect the sea more than ever. We have caused many imbalances in our oceans through over fishing and pollution. We need to call upon Poseidon for his help in protecting this domain. Today many organizations linked with the sea use his symbolism. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society uses the trident as a symbol on its flag as they protect whales and other sea creatures from death.

Surfers, sailors fishermen and anyone who has a deep love and appreciation of the ocean would do well to communicate regularly with Poseidon. He is said to protect his own and will give secrets of the sea to those who honour him. Knowing which surf break is going to be the best or how to perform well while sailing is a secret worth having!”

Shadow Side: “Poseidon is notoriously changeable. Whole armadas of battleships were lost if Poseidon was not on their side, and he would exact quick and lethal revenge if he so chose. Too much flippant change around emotions can lead to drama. It is important to be as balanced in our feelings as possible. While going with the flow is good, being too changeable can lead to instability and not being able to make good decision.

Pay attention to how flow is playing out in your life at present. Be aware that hanging on to a grudge or an imbalance will interrupt the clean flow to what you desire.”

Symbols: “Trident, dolphins, horses”

~ By Stacey Demarco

We cannot control the ocean, we can merely surrender to it. We can go with its cycles, it’s ebs and flows. When caught up in a current, we must ride with it, or we will exhaust ourselves. When things are going well, we can ride the wave. The ocean is a lifeline to our planet. It is filled with an abundance of life. It demands our respect. But it needs our love and care also.

Spending time close to the ocean is healing. Feet buried in the sand, breathing in the salt air, wind whispering… or screaming through your hair. The negative ions help to relieve us of our stress, reset our bodies, calm our nervous systems.

There is magic in the ritual of drawing or writing your dreams, wishes, prayers, creations and manifestions in the sand with gratitude and intention; asking the ocean to bless them and deliver them to Source. It activates co-creation with the Universe.

You could ask Poseidon for his blessings also. Maybe leave a small offering for the mermaids of a shell, crystal, flower or something organic.

Namaste

The Dancer Of Life

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

The Dancer Of Life: “I am The Dancer Of Life. I celebrate all that is, all that has been all that will be. I dance throughout all the human and spiritual realms, following the bright thread of life that connects everything that has being. I teach love, I teach strength and I impart a belief in the sacredness of all living things. I bring with me the power that breaks down all barriers, that survives in the face of all odds, that shines forth in even the darkest of moments.”

“The explosion of life shines out from every line of this image – a vivid depiction of the vitality and wonder of human existence. Just as our ancestors realized that they were both part of and separate from everything alive, so we continue to share that relationship. The Dancer Of Life reinvigorates our sense of the life forces that surround us, both human and spiritual, and encourages us to learn from other beings. This dancer celebrates life and gives us the strength to seize the opportunities that each day offers, and to rejoice in the spirit of adventure.”

Interpretations: “Energy; Fertility; Hope; Celebration; Joy in all things; Living in the now; Entering into awareness; Soul; Endurance; Respect for others; Endless possibilities”*

~ by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

We are stepping into the true empowerment of Being ourselves. Embracing our gifts; shining our lights; healing; supporting; completely accepting and Unconditionally loving. Doors are opening, opportunity arising. There is nothing that can hold us back. Fear dissolves as we embrace our true potential and remember why we came here. In order to be of service. In order to be a part of something much bigger than ourselves. In order to participate in the shift of consciousness that is happening Now. The shift into the 5th dimension of Being. Gaia and all of her creations, as a collective whole, traveling across time and space, through the dimensions to the next level of consciousness.

And you get to be a part of it. Let that sink in. You get to be here now. In this magical and amazing time of chaos, transformation and ascension. We all do. Wow. Like seriously.

This is a time for celebration. We made it. Karmic debts are completed, we are truly free to experience existing in the Now, as sovereign beings, yet also as an integral part of the Universe. All perfect pieces of an intricate and stellar puzzle containing the most profound secrets of Creation itself.

All the parameters are being stretched to the limits and the obstacles are being revealed as illusion. The veils have lifted. We can see through the dimensions when we intend to do so. In silence; for now they can be accessed from the inside with open heart and open mind.

Joy is the bridge between the worlds, it’s vibration creating a tangible connection. Find your joy and find your path, you true Soul purpose. Dance into life.

Namaste

Ix Chel ~ Creativity

Published November 24, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Ix Chel ~ Creativity, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Ix Chel ~ Creativity, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ix Chel ~ Creativity, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Ix Chel ~ Creativity:

“I weave strings of energy

into the web of creation

Where nothing was before

out of the void

into the world

I spin them into existence

Out from my mind

out from my body

out of my awareness of what needs to be

Now there is something new

and all life is nourished

Mythology: “Ix Chel (pronounced e’shell) was worshipped by the Maya of the Yucatan peninsula on Cozumel, her sacred island. The Moon/Snake Goddess, she helps assure fertility by holding the sacred womb jar upside down so that the waters of creation can be ever flowing. Ix Chel also presides over weaving, magic, health and healing, sexuality, water, and childbirth. The dragonfly is her special animal. When she was almost killed by her grandfather for becoming the Sun’s lover, the dragonfly sang over her until she was well.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Ix Chel has woven herself into your life to tell you it is time to express creativity. It is time to stoke the fire, time to let your creative flow. Create! Be daring! But also be responsible and conscious, whether your creations are works of art or works of the flesh (children). Creativity nurtures, creativity reweaves the tears in our vitality, creativity heals. It is our birthright and our life blood, it makes us healthy and happy. We women have the ability to create: we give birth. So find the time, make the time, create the time to be creative. Beat that drum, use those paints, make that pottery, put on those dancing shoes, write those novels, explore your sexuality, rejoice in your own creativity. Create in the way that is appropriate for you. Let nothing stop you.

Do you feel blocked creatively because you aren’t as good as someone else? Do the kids, your partner, your family, your job, keep you from being creative? Stop using your creativity to find reasons not to create. Ix Chel says wholeness is nurtured when you open to your creativity and live it.”*

~ by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Your creative talents are your gift to share with the world. When your heart sings with passion and delight as you create what resonates with you, your inspiration creates light, which is imbued into that which you are creating. You literally incorporate your light, the Light of the Universe, into your creation. This Light is aligned with the Love force of the Universe and quite literally has the power to heal within it. As you send your creations out into the world, they radiate this love and Divine Light and heal all those who come into contact with it. Yes, you are just that powerful. We all are.

That is why there is no need to compete… there is always more than enough to go around. That is why there is no fear of failure… your light is pure and true. That is why today is a good day to start creating.

And now is as good a time as any.

I AM a creative force of the Universe and I share my light generously with the world.

Namaste

Pan ~ Fertility

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Pan ~ Fertility, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Pan ~ Fertility: “This card signifies that it is a very fertile time for you. This is an ideal time for the conception of a baby or new projects. All of the doors are open for you right now. Your mind is fertile with many wonderful new ideas, and abundance easily flows to you. Since everything is in its infancy stage, have patience with the growth process. Just nurture yourself and your projects so that you stay strong and fertile.

Additional Meanings For This Card: You have the Midas Touch, and everything is turning to gold right now. There is good news about pregnancy or adoption coming. Let go of worries or guilt and enjoy yourself. Now is a good time to start projects.

Pan is an ancient Greek deity of nature, mirth, music and fertility. It was love at first sight for Pan when he spotted the lovely wood nymph Syrinx. Yet Syrinx did not return his affection (it is said that Pan was so unattractive that his name became the root of the word panic because of the reaction children had when they saw him). So Pan ran after Syrinx down to the river. Syrinx called upon the water nymphs for help, and they turned Pan into willow reeds. As Pan yelled for help, the reeds made beautiful music. Later, when Pan transformed back into his original self, he made a musical instrument of reeds, which is today called a “panpipe.” Call upon Pan for help with any fertility issues, music, or to relax and enjoy yourself.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

You have the Midas Touch… what will you do with it? This is not a time to hide behind fears and doubts of success, this is a time to go for it, put it all out there and reap the rewards. You may not have instant gratification, but you will be planting some very powerful seeds in the perfect nutritious soil… and they will come quickly to fruition.

This card is yet another big reminder that we must cultivate our thoughts to match that which we WILL create in our lives. There is no “maybe” here, only a definite. What you put out there will come back to you like a boomerang. In fact, imagine each intention you set as just that, a boomerang sent out into the Universe, only to come back more powerful than it set out. What is your boomerang programmed to bring back to you? How do you see the effects throughout your life? Can you see areas where you are clearly focused and able to manifest what you desire, and then some areas that could use a little work? Get outside in the forest and channel some of Pan’s energy to get these thoughts turned around.

Close your eyes and see everything you touch turning to gold (in a good way!!). Know that you can create anything you want, if you have the intention to do it and the belief in yourself.

Namaste

The Queen Of Passage

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Queen Of Passage, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud

The Queen Of Passage: “Surrender ~ Transition ~ Trust”

“All things change. All situations move from one phase into another. Sometimes those transitions are difficult. Letting go and moving on, whether to a new life, a new love, or perhaps just a new phase of a current relationship, can be painful, but The Queen Of Passage is there to help with those transitions. She looks ahead with the keen sight of the kestrel and can see the future with the wisdom of the raven. She holds a pomegranate, a sign of fertility.

There is growth in the future. There is a way ahead. The darkness comes as you step from one state to another. The moment of passage between the past and future, between the worlds themselves, is a moment of surrender.

Trust this great queen to be your guide. Listen to what she has to tell you and then take that step. She will be by your side in the moment you move out of the past and into the future.”*

– Brian and Wendy Froud

We are in a time of great change. This change is first and foremost a shift in perception. It is a shift in the way that we see and feel everything that we see and feel every day. It’s a decision. It’s an ascension. It’s flying without leaving the ground. It’s freedom from within. It’s a realization that we can change what is outside us by starting on the inside. And, it is about not taking things on the outside too seriously in knowing this valuable information.

We have been raised in a doom and gloom society. We have been controlled by fear for thousands of years. The fear is to keep us in line. It is to keep us from stepping into our power. It is to keep us preoccupied. It is to keep us looking outside of ourselves to be rescued. This perpetuation of fear creates judgement, lack mentality, possessiveness and competition. It destroys trust and sets an “everyone for themselves” attitude. All that is about to change. Finally we are waking up.

Stepping from darkness into light, there will be a moment where we cross through the void. Where we may hesitate; letting the fear set in. The longer we spend in the void, the more likely we are to turn back to the past. The Queen Of Passage is here to assist us to walk fearlessly through the void and face the brightness of the future. She will help us to shift our perception from lack to abundance. She will guide us towards healing and acceptance. She will assist us to see ourselves as free; full of love and light.

Namaste
