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

Temperance

Published August 3, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Temperance, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Temperance: “She gathers herself, reaches within for the calm center, that place of balance. From her center, she feels the dragon and phoenix stirring. They twine about one another. They embrace in a sinuous twisting of scale and feather until it seems that one melts into the other. They coil around each other in a timeless battle for supremacy, choreographed in an elegant waltz of give and take, push and pull. They swirl about her in a maelstrom that assaults the senses. Like a maestro, she watches over and reins in one or the other when she senses any imbalance so that harmony is maintained.

Earth and sky, fire and water, male and female, summer’s warmth and lush growth and winter’s chill winds bearing down: these opposites flow one into the other in the cyclical and endless push of yin and yang. They are perfectly balanced against one another; in fact, they are given purpose and definition by the existence of diametric opposites.

Without water, fire rages utterly unchecked and all consuming, burning itself out eventually in a terrible conflagration. And without fire, the waters are lightless and drowning, flooding until there is only a still, silent mirror of nothing. By defining each other’s limits, they both become imbued life and become life-giving, tempered to co-exist in just the right balance, for too much of one, and the other will be smothered.”

Card Meaning: “Harmony and equilibrium, balancing of opposites, healing. Moderation of extremes, self-restraint, harnessing absolute forces, and reining the in to be wielded to a purpose. Holding opposites apart from one another denies their power of unity. By drawing them together to merge in a measured fashion, and understanding what one bestows upon the other, a beautiful synthesis can be created. Sometimes all that holds the two apart is a wall of belief. Being flexible and understanding that there is more than one way to perceive the world can go a long way towards breaking down that invisible wall.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Love can come in many forms and if we are going to anchor the energies of the Christ Consciousness back here on Gaia, we must be able to align with and present all of the aspects of love available to us. There is openness and receptivity in love, seeing the Divine connection in each and every living being reflected back to us; showing us our own connection to it. There is acceptance; loving despite where someone is at, what they have done or are capable of. Loving despite the past or the present holds space for them to align with a higher frequency in the future, even the immediate future. Releasing judgment. Releasing fear. Embracing the polarities of our differences; bringing them together in balance.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, finally meeting as equals. Playing their individual roles and also coming together to make something alchemical, powerful and profound. The power of the dragon and the rebirth of the phoenix. With the two energies working together, anything can be co-created.

Open to possibility. Open to co-creation. Open to harmony, acceptance and to receptivity.

It is time to open yourself up to Love.

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

Fire Keepers

Fire Keepers, from the Sacred Geometry Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Fire Keepers, from the Sacred Geometry Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fire Keepers, from the Sacred Geometry Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Fire Keepers: ” Sacred Responsibility, Service”

“Fire is historically the source for protective warmth, light in the darkness, and heat for cooking and was essential to the survival of the original peoples. Fire keepers hold a sacred responsibility both for the physical survival and the ceremonial spiritual protection of the community. Theirs is an essential and esteemed service.

Triangles represent Spirit, divinity, life, strength, harmony, and completion. The upwards facing triangle is traditionally associated with fire, action, and the masculine.

Three fires warming many hands invite you to warm to the understanding of these three levels of conscious personal mastery: physical awareness, mental intention, and spiritual evolution.

*You are invited to become aware of the effect your actions have on this physical plane. Are you living your bliss through your chosen vocation? Does your “job” contribute to the welfare of those around you as well as your own needs?

*Engage your mind and reflect on how the responsibilities you have chosen contribute to the whole of humanity. How might you more effectively engage your intentions to set in motion your vision of the future?

*Explore your connection to Spirit and request to be of greater service to divine will and the evolution of consciousness.

This is a card of action. Recognition of your sacred responsibility will help to bring you into alignment with the purpose of your soul.

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Has your enthusiasm grown cold of late? Consciously revitalize the fire of your vision.”*

~ By Francene Hart

We are being called together, this is ascension. It is seeing that we are each individual and unique expressions of the Divine, and yet we are also connected to every aspect of the Universe and it’s creations. We are the Light, and coming together just makes us shine more brightly. We need each other. The illusion of separation is dissolving and we are banding together to heal and grow as One.

It is time to step into our gifts; our Sacred Service, the reason why we incarnated here. It is time for us to share what we came here to share. Each one of us is a piece of a much greater puzzle, each just as important as the next piece. A puzzle cannot be complete if there is even one piece missing. You are that one piece.

The key is joy, passion and zest for life. Follow that feeling and do what brings these wonderful emotions to you. By being in your joy, you raise your vibration. When you raise your vibration, you heal yourself, others, and the planet. Yes, really, you do! When you are joyful, truly passionate and living with your heart open, you are a healing force of Love and Light. That is your path. That is why you came. And you are such a powerful healer, we can’t do it without you.

Find your joy. Live your passion. Light up those around you with your fire.

This lifetime is too short to hold back any longer.

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, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

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
