Elemental Embrace: “Elemental Forces ~ Synthesis”

“This card speaks of connecting with elemental forces. Molten lava flows into the ocean under a full moon, where two pairs of lovers inhabiting the steam plumes are revealed. They embody the passionate embrace of fire, creating earth and transmuting water into air. There is an atmosphere of raw creative energy emerging from the planet’s womb. You know how it feels, though you may never have experienced it. Coming from a primal place in our cellular memory, this feeling holds the power of the elements and speaks directly to the relationship all humans have with these elements and with Mother Earth.

Embedded within this card are two seven sided stars. Seven is an integrating number and here represents the synthesis of body, mind and Spirit with the elemental forces. Seven indicates stages of transformation and is a self-contained chronicle for quickening creativity.

How can you more fully appreciate your connection with elemental forces?

You may decide to put your hands in the earth and grow a garden. Water it and see how sunlight and air combine to feed you and enhance growth and beauty in your life. You may sit by a fire with your feet on the ground, watching sparks fly into the air on a dark summer’s eve. Perhaps you will learn to enhance your living space through a discipline such as feng shui. In any way you choose, find an understanding of the relationships among elemental forces so that you might live in harmony within your environment and merge your everyday life with the magic and mystery of the cosmos.

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Circumstances have led to a feeling of separation. Reconnect with friends.”*

~ By Francene Hart

We are being asked to reconnect  our bodies, minds and spirits to the elemental forces of Nature, those who make up our very being, as well as everything in our Universe. The elements are magical, they are scientific. They are the basis for everything; they are the cornerstone of creation. We are made up of water. We survive on the air. We are nurtured by the Earth. We are warmed by the fire. We are sparked into existence by Ether, the most mysterious of the elements, being that of pure Creative Love energy.

When we honour the elements through sacred ritual we reconnect ourselves to their deep and profound wisdom. We reconnect to the Heart of our Great Beloved Mother, Gaia and all of her creations. Spending time in nature is a wonderful way to reconnect to the elements; camping being on of the very best when we can cut free of technology and reconnect with the old ways… if you can find a campsite without WIFI that is!

Setting up an alter in the house is also an amazing way to honour the elements. We can represent each of the elements in a way that is meaningful to us; for example we can use a candle for fire, a vase of flowers to represent water and earth, and a musical instrument such as a flute to represent air. Ether can be represented by a blessing, prayer, poem or story of love and creation, or through the song played by the flute, creating peace and tranquility. Do what feels right to you, as there are no right and wrong ways to honour these great ancestors of ours. Sacred ceremony is personal and should feel right to you. It should be created in a part of the house which feels like a santuary; peaceful, private and comforting.

Namaste

Flame Of Inspiration

Flame Of Inspiration

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Wisdom Of The Golden Path Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Flame Of Inspiration

Flame Of Inspiration: “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

“Your imagination is fertile at present and you soon feel inspired to create. As you tap into the infinite power of creativity you hold within you, new possibilities unfold. Keep an open heart and mind and be open to new ideas. Think outside of the square but do not take things too seriously. Make this a time of fun and exploration. Be in touch with your inner child, the true artist within you. An idea will come to you that will lead to an abundant and fulfilling future. Try to relax over the coming days. The more you relax, the easier it will be. Spend some time in nature and feel her fertile and healing energies. This can be a time of exploration and romance, and enchanted and magical time.

Affirmations:

I hold infinite creative power.

I am inspired by life.

I keep an open mind and heart.

I am open to new ideas.

I am in touch with my inner artist.”*

This card is full of fire and passion; the woman on the card has faced her fears, represented by the Demons, and she is moving out of the fire, her gaze steady and focused. She is inspired, to move forward despite her fears; they no longer have the power to hold her back. You have had a creative idea brewing for some time, yet fear is holding you back from your full expression of it. Fear of failure, fear of judgement, fear of past experiences coming to pass again. You must release this fear and take the leap of faith; ignite the flame of inspiration and let passion lead your way.

Often we get side tracked by what others want of us; what they see best for us, or how they wish to control us becomes our ideas for ourselves. It’s time to get back to you making decisions for yourself; lead by your heart, your dreams and your desires. When you stay true to your heart, and don’t allow fear of failure to block your way, you cannot fail. Break free from judgement, and see your life the way that you want it to be, with joy and enthusiasm. This activates the Law Of Attraction, putting it to work for your highest possible good. It allows you to bring your dreams to fruition with ease and grace, dodging fear and doubt once and for all.

It is ok to take a step back from those who do not support you, feel toxic, competitive or seem to be trying to hold you back. If someone does not have your very best interest at heart, they do not deserve a space in your life. If it is someone who you cannot completely release, set some boundaries, this is very important for you to be able to fully express yourself without fearing judgment.Know that you need to be able to trust your intuition when it comes to making these decisions, sometimes someone may seem ok at face value, but your gut is telling you differently. There is no room for anyone who cannot be true, honest and authentic with you.

Set your focus to find your tribe. Ask your angels to guide like minded and supportive people your way. Your angels want to see you joyfully supported and will send you the people who you need to help you fulfill your dreams. The people who truly care for you will want to see you succeed, they will be your cheerleaders and they will wish you only the best. There will be no reason for your true soul family to hold you back from chasing your dreams and following your heart.

Let your passion guide your way.

Namaste

The Clinging

Published August 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Clinging, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

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

The Clinging: “The message here is to consider the qualities of fire and its dual nature: on the one hand it provides warmth and illumination that disperses darkness, revealing the hidden, and on the other hand it is capable of ruthless destruction. It defines, brings clarity, is brilliant and beautiful, and can be utterly enchanting or alternatively can be all consuming, difficult, and voracious in its appetites.

The climate usually associated with fire is bright, hot, and passionate. Yet in some instances it can be experienced as cool and passionately dispassionate. It is dangerous in its apparent ability to mesmerize while it is consuming, to the point where the consumed is eliminated, devoured by its own attraction like the moth in the flame. And just like that hypnotized moth, we humans will even put our lives at stake to participate, even briefly, in a moment of glory. If passion is strong enough we will fight aggressively to defend our beliefs in spite of the havoc those beliefs might unleash.

To harness the powerful transformative quality of fire requires maturity, and maturity doesn’t happen overnight; it develops at a slow and deliberate pace, sometimes requiring that we get burned in the process. A fiery temperament prefers to leap now and deal with the consequences later, and it is simply childish to blame fate for what you attract when your actions are ruled by impulsiveness. Passionately surrendering one’s own cautious instincts can be in the service of anything – a person, place, object or point of view and is bound to be transformative in some form or other. Surrendering to an all-consuming passion virtually guarantees we will emerge from the experience irrevocably changed from how we entered it. Once a longing is powerful enough, and it seems impossible to withdraw, we’ve already taken the first steps into the fire. What’s more, even if we could we wouldn’t turn back.

In some instances, to deny a fascination can be deeply troubling. Blinded by ‘the light’ of what seems to be our destiny, we can rush headlong into danger, driven by an inexplicable longing, only to wake up dazed and distraught later on. But with awareness, such experiences can be recognized as invaluable in that they help to clarify our acts and motivations. Awareness makes it possible to appreciate, not simply to endure, the process of regeneration.

If you feel as though you are standing in fire now, respect its capacity to cleanse and purify as it burns off whatever has become extraneous and burdensome in your life. This will help you to appreciate what is happening rather than resist it. Remember, too, that life is not out to destroy you, but is working continuously to support your growth and, ultimately, your self-realization.

Once this time has passed, you will  have a new respect and appreciation for the uncomplicated and simple things in life. Ultimately it all boils down to your inner perspective, whether you become bitter and burned out by an experience, or take it in stride and appreciate how it has helped you to grow, revitalizing your life in the process.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

There is a feeling here that maybe it wasn’t as easy to let go as we would have liked. There was resistance, hesitation, stubbornness. So, in comes the fire. Burning and shifting and changing, like it or not. Fire is raging here, out of our control. Change is in motion, things are happening. Do not go into victim mode, see it for what it is. See the cleansing, the clearing away. See the purification and the clearing of the slate. Know that it will be followed with opportunity, growth and rebirth. Let it reignite your passion and zest for life.

Resistance is futile! The momentum is such that there is no stopping it now, it has begun and will continue to shift and change until it is done and the change is complete. Tempers may flare. There may be conflict to deal with. Do not get dragged into the drama, but instead rise above it. Gain a new perspective and accept the change as it happens. Be a part of it, embrace it, receive it. Dare to love it.

Gather your strength and your resources and know that your rebirth is up to you to direct. Know that you have full responsibility for creating what comes next. The people will come, the opportunities will come. You get to choose who goes and who stays. You get to choose which doors open and which remain closed. This is your masterpiece, your creation; your ultimate manifestation.

What will come after the fire?

Namaste

Thurisaz

Published July 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Thurisaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Thurisaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco artwork by Jimmy Manton

Thurisaz: “Do not get drawn into unnecessary drama. There are many sides to every story, so make sure you research a situation thoroughly before making a decision. Ignorance is no excuse. Choose wisdom and remove the old thorn in your side. Choose the positive flow of enthusiasm, fecundity and passion, rather than aggression, small mindedness and force.”

“I am the hammer of wisdom:
I smash ignorance,
Exploding smallness,
Expanding outwards,
The thorn no longer in my side.
I am Thurisaz”

Thurisaz (pronounced, “thoor-ee-saws” is part of the Elder Futark. Although often referred to as a “thorn,” this rune more accurately represents Thor’s hammer, Mjollnir, and the god himself. Thor, a protective figure, who defended Asgard from the giants, is the hero one calls upon to fight for freedoms and balanced expansion.

The hammer can easily be misconstrued as a dull brute of a weapon, but in this case the hammer is used to smash ignorance and small mindedness, as well as clear away untruth. There is a solidity that Thurisaz requires, an acknowledgment that we have the wisdom and tools we need within us – that we do not always have to look outward for validity.

Thurisaz suggests that courage may be needed to overcome our hesitancy to strive for greater creativity or prosperity. Both self-sabotage and chronic procrastination are challenges for many. Thurisaz gives us the confidence to break through these forms of fear with passion and gladness.”

Thurisaz as Challenger: “Beware of those who hold a smaller vision of life than you do – and of those who may envy your dreams or vision. You may need to undertake more research before you make a key decision, otherwise the result may be quite detrimental to you or your business. Ignorance is no excuse. Do your due diligence. Be aware of being heavy handed or pushing people too hard, as this will only backfire.”

Element: “Earth, Fire”*

~ by Stacey Demarco

Yesterday’s message was a message of truth. Absolute, uncompromising truth. Today’s message is a message about clearing away all obstacles which prevent this pure truth from prevailing in your reality right now.

What needs to be smashed? A limiting belief system perhaps? An old way of being in the world? A victim or lack mentality? Regret, guilt, shame or resentment that is holding you back? Smash all that, Thor is generously offering us Mjollnir to do so… can you visualize it? This is a call to be done with what no longer serves you.

This messages also has an underlying tone of the energy of Kali, the goddess who destroys evil beings and also our fears; ultimately creating the chaos necessary to free us from the ties that bind us or hold us down. When Kali comes you know that the Universe has tried coaxing, nudging and drawing you to where you need to be. But you haven’t been listening. Enter Kali. Things are about to be stirred up. The truth must come out now. Go willingly or weather the storm.

It’s always up to you.

Namaste

Brigid ~ Inspiration

Brigid ~ Inspiration, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky, Illustrated by Hrana Janto

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Brigid ~ Inspiration, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky, Illustrated by Hrana Janto

Brigid ~ Inspiration:

“Let me come to you

through the mists

through the fire

through the plants

through the deep flowing wells

with ideas

visions

words

music beyond the tips of your ears

Let me move you

enliven you

till your perspective shifts

and your mind ~ body~ spirit explodes

and you are left standing

in the wake of what has been revealed…

and life feels very sweet”

Mythology: “Brigid (pronounced bridge’id, (which means “bright,” is a Celtic triple Goddess of fire: the fire of inspiration, smithcraft, poetry, healing, and divination. Her inspiration was vital to the bards (poets) who called upon her freely. Legend says that Brigid was born with a flame reaching out from the top of her head, connecting her with the universe. The new (Christian) and the old (Pagan) Brigid were merged into St. Brigid in A.D. 450. St. Brigid, daughter of a Druid, was a goldsmith and a healer. Nineteen priestesses/nuns guard her sacred fire in Kildare, Ireland. On the twentieth of each month it is said that she appears and tends it herself.”

Meaning of the Card: “Brigid comes to ignite you with inspiration. Are you feeling a lack of direction? Motivation? Energy? Has your path gone out of focus, your life become unclear? It is time to nurture wholeness by taking in the sparkle and crackle of inspiration. Brigid says that a life without the fire of inspiration is dull indeed. She further counsels that by allowing inspiration to nurture your life you become sharper, clearer, and more energetic.”*

~by Amy Sophia Marashinsky, Illustrated by Hrana Janto

Now we have the element of Fire as our Ally through the Goddess Brigid. Fire is passion and movement and transmutation; it is action and adventure and motivation. Where is your life stagnant? What needs to be burned away in order to see the Truth and the Light available to you? Only you know the answer. Fire will give you the necessary motivation and inspiration to make the necessary changes to find your passions again and set your heart on fire (in a good way!)

Moving into the New Earth consciousness requires authenticity. We are asked to find our true selves and live from a heart centered place of gratitude and joy…. with a spicy edge of passion, sensuality and zest for life! This can only be done if we achieve balance between our light and shadow selves. Fire can assist us in shedding light on that which must be healed in order for us to find and live our Soul purpose in this incarnation. Finding our true passion and living it is key.

What gets your fire burning? What do you love to do? What gets your blood pumping through your veins while time stands still… what makes you feel alive beyond anything else?

Go do that. And ask Brigid to assist you in harnessing this energy in order to move forward towards the creation of your wildest dreams.

Namaste

Fire ~ Passion

Published February 2, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Fire ~ Passion

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fire ~ Passion, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Fire ~ Passion: “Since the dawn of humankind, we have been fascinated by fire. As soon as early humans were able to make fire, it changed our lifestyle dramatically. Through its capacity to generate heat and light, fire made it possible to cook food, stay warm in cooler climates, and keep predators away at night. And of course, that huge furnace called the sun is the spark of Life here on Earth, bringing not only the necessary warmth of this incredibly huge ball of fire, but also the life-giving fays of light emitted by that fire.

In this card, a man is enacting an ancient ceremonial fire dance originating from Samoa, at one time performed to ignite the passion  of warriors before battle. Fire can inspire other passions as well. We speak of being “on fire” or “catching fire,” phrases signifying that we possess an intense desire or enthusiasm for something. No wonder that passion has come to be associated with fire.

What are your passions? What turns you on? What ignites that inner flame, that creative spark? When you feel devoid of passion, consider what is missing in your life. It is most likely an absence of “fire in your belly,” something that makes your heart beat faster and quickens your breathing. Passion is not something that comes from outside of you, although some events and circumstances can trigger it. It is an intensity of feeling, whether quietly experienced or enthusiastically expressed.

Passion can simply be a strong feeling, or the sensation itself can be so powerful that it motivates you to act. This is too often associated exclusively with sexuality, which is certainly one way of experiencing it, yet it limits its meaning and demeans the broader possibilities. Open yourself to the truth of what you are passionate about, and find a means to express it.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

The key to your Soul’s purpose lies within the passion of your heart. What is it that makes time stand still for you? This is not about other people, no matter how in love you may be right now. This is all about YOU, and why you are right here, right now, on this amazing planet full of inspiration and indulgence of the physical senses!

Unfortunately, often our passion is  buried deep inside us by the time we become adults. It may be found to be what people have told us from a young age was silly; just a hobby or pastime; a waste of time, money or effort; or even, in tougher cases, something we were not “allowed” to do. This could be a form of music, dance, art, writing, baking, or creativity of any kind. The good news? Finding out what it is, if you are not sure, can be fun and lead you to meeting all sorts of new people who will open doors of opportunity for you.

So where to start? Well, I’m guessing that most of us at least have a hint of which direction to go… I know that I can’t sing my way out of a wet paper bag so it’s probably not singing! However, anything to do with rocks and crystals makes my heart beat a little faster for sure! I can spend hours making jewelry, looking for special rocks on the beach, or making a crystal grid! I can wander through a rock show admiring them, touching and feeling their energy for literally… days…

Where do you feel like you could stay forever? In your garden? Doing yoga? Playing an instrument? Singing or dancing or painting or writing or baking? If none of these resonates with you, then you have some homework to do! Start taking some workshops or classes, either online or locally to you. Read up on what you think you might like to learn. Make a bucket list and take action to check each one off. Watch free Youtube videos, surf Etsy or Pinterest until you find something that jumps right out at you. Then dive in and learn it; and while you are at it, you will be surrounding yourself with like-minded, supportive people who “get” you… cuz they love doing it too!

Your passion will lead you straight to pure joy. It will give your heart wings.

Namaste

Purification ~ Fire

Purification ~ Fire, from the Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Purification ~ Fire, from the Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Purification ~ Fire: “Bare essentials; The naked truth; Wholeness.”

“What is it that your heart truly desires? What do you perceive is missing in your life? In order to find the answers you must look inside your heart. You already know this but have reluctant to look because a part of you fears what your heart is trying to tell you. The only way forward is to face your fear. Something in your life is not working out as you would have liked and it is not going to get any better unless you have the courage to face it. Close your eyes and relax. Imagine a beautiful flame, warming your heart and soul. Feel its purifying and healing light burning away your fears and doubts, healing your body and mind and clearing away all obstacles either imagined or real. Feel your heart center as an endless space full of only love and light. Feel the peace. You are safe in this eternal space of light. Now, what is your heart saying? When it brings a tear to your eye you will know that it is your truth.

Your soul will guide you towards happiness; all you need to do is follow. Trust!

Affirmation:
I listen to my heart and follow it’s guidance.

I deserve to be happy.

I have the power to create my own reality.

I trust that all will work out well.

My life is clear of all obstacles.”*

– Toni Carmine Salerno

We have been asked to look closely at our most intimate relationships, and how the people around us can affect us. We have looked at what we have come here to learn from them all; whether that lesson is perceived as “good” or “bad.” Now we are being asked to delve deeply within ourselves to see where our own true heart lies. Looking inward to our very core; where heart meets soul will tell us the absolute truth about our essence of being. Yet many times we shy away from this kind of honesty… do we really want to know? By knowing we are then faced with deciding. Transform or compromise? Break free or stay stuck? Take the leap of faith or stay where we feel safe and secure?

Really it should be the easiest decision in the world… following our hearts should be second nature, there should be no reason to write this…. it would be like me telling you not to forget to breathe, or digest your food… yet that is not the case.

Enter fear, doubt, worry and a healthy dose of other people’s opinions and judgement thrown in for good measure. What does the tape in your head say? Does it say “go for it, I believe in you 100% and you can do this, you will succeed no matter what!”… or does it say… “What if you fail… again. What if you end up aloneforever. What if it’s too late? What if no one likes your idea? What if you end up all alone under a bridge with nothing.”

Is this tape in your head perhaps an 8 Track? Is it a VHS or a floppy disk? Is it possible that it might be sooooo 10, 20, 30 40 or 50 years OUTDATED?? If you could take it out and have a good look at it, would you realize that it was all dusty and broken down from being played over and over again… maybe it’s one of those old phonographs with the funny looking funnel thingy playing warbly old music, stuck on the same track due to the big scratch. Ok, you get the point!

So, take a few deep breaths, we are going to perform psychic surgery, yup, just like John Of God! We are going to do an upgrade, and we are going to remove that old, worn out tape and replace it with some loving affirmations, such as the ones above.

Breathe deeply and when you are ready, click “eject” and see the tape. Take it out and lovingly examine it. Remember where you got it, who’s voice is on it, and how long you have had it. Then grab some metaphorical lighter fluid and light that baby up! See the flames engulf it, purifying it, disintegrating it, clearing out all that low density vibrational energy it was packed with. See yourself dropping it onto the ground and stomping on it a few times just for good measure… and since this is only a visualization, and we are not hurting the environment, imagine Mother Gaia absorbing it for you lovingly. Poof… it’s gone.

Forever.

Now… on to infinite possibility. Clean slate. Happy heart. Soaring soul. The Universe is the limit. Dream, smile, breathe, and just be. Love.

Namaste
