Serapis Bey: “Ascension”

“Move into your true self. Rise above the darkness – the light is here.”

About Serapis Bey: “Serapis Bey is the light keeper in charge of ascension. He once served as a priest in Luxor, Egypt, healing those passing on to cross over into the light. Now he is a presence we can call on in order to ascend. Ascension means rising up – it reminds us of the story of Christ being resurrected after death. This means that Serpais Bey can guide us from the lowest states of being, back to the light. His energy is almost like that of a phoenix, giving us the support to move out of our own hell or darkness into a space that supports our growth.”

Extended Message from Serapis Bey: “The stars cannot shine without darkness. You may have experienced a low state of being, trauma, or depression, but this is a new beginning. Become aware of growth. There is always room for improvement. There’s also a sense of presentation now. You may be receiving documentation or certification to acknowledgment your growth or experience. It’s important to cherish this time and to realize that without the challenges or obstacles you have faced, you would not be as strong, powerful or focused as you are today. You are ascending personally personally and spiritually at this time and the universe is here to support it.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Here we have another reference to the transformation and transmutation of the energies of the 8:8 Lion’s Gateway. What is darkness must be brought into the Light. And the Light is here, Now! This is a message of such profound change that it resembles resurrection ~ the phoenix rising up from the ashes. New life. Death of the old and Rebirth. Complete transformation and radical shifting change.

We are awakening to ascend. We are realizing why we are here. Remembering our Soul Path, and why we came here lifetime after lifetime. We are almost able to complete our mission and start again in the creation of the New Earth.

What else is possible here? What have you learned so far on this journey, in this particular incarnation? How can you apply your previous life lessons and experience to the rest of your life now? Where can you release these lessons and avoid repeating patterns? Where is change necessary in order to grow; where have you been holding on for too long and what areas of your life are calling you to expand and flourish?

You are creating the rest of your life, right here and now. Look closely at where you are putting your energy, your focus and your intention. Take responsibility. Be the driving force in your own life.

And so it is

Namaste

Compass

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Compass, from The Enchanted Map Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron Reid, Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Compass: “As long as you orient your compass to True North – the direction of your higher power – you will never be lost.”

“You are entering uncharted territories right now and can expect wonderful new experiences. To stay on the highest path of your destiny, you will need to keep your compass pointed to True North. Only Spirit, or a higher power, can serve this function. Money, property, prestige, romance, and other material achievements can’t help you to find your true path. They are simply things you may experience along the journey.

Know that Spirit is working in your life, so even if  you feel lost temporarily, it will be easy o find your way. Have faith and trust, for your compass, with Spirit as True North, will ensure that you will never be lost – even on a starless night when all seems dark.”

When The Compass Card Comes To You As Challenger: “What is your higher power right now? Whatever you constantly focus on long enough becomes your higher power. If you worry about financial insecurity, materialism is your idol; if you obsess over a relationship, that is your god; if you are concerned about your weight or your looks or your status, you have lost your personal power and your way. Nothing but Spirit can be your guiding force. You will never truly find what you seek if these worries and distractions are your constant focus.

Surrender… and shift your compass. Be still and watch as the needle points to True North. Align yourself and you will easily find your way back to where you are meant to be.”

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

What is the guiding force in your life right now? What is your motivation; is it your dreams or your fear of failure? Do you do what you do to prove to the world who you are and what you stand for? Or do you work through creative self expression, oblivious to or in spite of what anyone else may think? Do you want bigger and better and faster and more? Or do you seek peace, balance, comfort and security? Are you at peace with those around you, or do you harbour resentment, anger or frustration? Are you in charge, have you claimed your personal power? Or have you given it over to another, and living as they dictate you must?

All of these questions and more will guide us to realize where we use our focus and intention. Do we follow the rhythms of our bodies, our minds and our spirits? Or do we feel crushed by obligation and responsibility? And if so, how can we change this around so that we can find our joy?

The most challenging shift in perception for us on our physical journey here in this material realm is to understand that all of our love and peace comes from within us. It is always there, like a pilot light, waiting to be lit and brought to blazing flames. It isn’t outside. It isn’t in owning something, no matter what that may be. It is not hidden within someone else, even though it feels so euphoric to be truly loved by another. All those are addictions of a sort, they are projections outside us that we want more and more and more of to fill the void we perceive within.

To truly awaken, to truly find our bliss, we must look within ourselves. This is where the treasure lies. Use your internal compass to navigate the way back to your true authentic self. That is where your journey begins, the healing, the Love, the Light.

This is a brand new month and it is the start of something amazing. Let your compass lead you into uncharted territory. It is time to set sail on your journey within.

Namaste

Is your spiritual life putting pressure on you lately? All this trying to think positively and raising your vibration, yet you still have bad days, and feel fear, and try not to judge and try your best to be accepting and loving? Yup, you are still human. Phew!

Take a few deep breaths and give yourself a break. The fact is, you are working on yourself, and while you may not have reached enlightened perfection and mastered hovering while in lotus posture, you are still doing amazing things! You have raised your vibration. You have opened your heart. You have activated  your  chakras. You are an amazing work in progress. Accept that. Breathe it in. Give yourself a pat on the back. Well done! You, my friend, are waking up and you are exactly where you need to be, right here, right now. How does that feel?

Give yourself a little break from it all today. Your only job is to smile and give out as many hugs as you can. No asking for advice, it’s all inside you. Instead, be someone else’s sounding board, be there for someone else who needs to know that they, also are on the right path. Take a sea salt bath. Play with your crystals. Go for an energy healing session. Do some yoga. Go for a walk. Get outside and breath some fresh air. Feel the sunshine on your face.

Today? Just be You. You are amazing at that. It’s your specialty. And remember: the world would not be the same without the gift of your beautiful presence.

Namaste

Gaia’s Garden

Gaia’s Garden: “Fruition, Abundance, Reaping What You Sow”

“In Gaia’s Garden, you have everything you need to make your dreams come true. There is no shortage of anything, and you are constantly reminded of the Law of Supply. Gaia is the infinite Spirit manifest in all tanglible things. She represents the abundance of Nature. When she comes to you as your Ally, she invites you to partake of all the blessings of Life. There will always be enough for everyone. Success comes to you from the fruits of your intentions, and all is well with the world as a result.

This is also a sign to remind you to give thanks and maintain an attitude of humility and gratitude as your greatest good now manifests for you. Gaia’s gifts are sweeter when you share them with others.”

When This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “When Gaia appears as a Challenger in her Garden, she gently points out that you have forgotten to give back to the world. Or perhaps you have become lazy, expecting fruit to fall from the tree while you rest below its leaves. Gardens require tending, water, and food for the soil. Everything you have within you is needed in the world, so do not underestimate the power of what you have to offer.

Timely effort is called for when Gaia challenges you to help in her Garden. So ask not what you will get, but what you can give. You will be pleasantly surprised by this change of perception. Be careful not to procrastinate too much of the window of your current opportunity might close. Yet even if you do miss this one, as long as you are willing to help in the Garden, you will most certainly see another.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Gaia’s Garden is within us as much as it is outside of us. We must make time to connect with her daily, no matter the weather, no matter how busy we are or what else is going on. She is offering us the blessing of Grounding and of abundance. She is offering of her Horn of Plenty, which is a tribute to her creations, but it is also a reminder of the power of our own thoughts, feelings and intentions.

In Gaia’s Garden, anything is possible. Magical portals are everywhere, if you choose to take the time to find them. Colour and sound and Light and scent and touch are all on offer.

Here is a clue for you on your journey: Make time to be outside each day, no matter what. Ask for your animal spirit guides to send you messages. Ask for magic. Breathe. Believe. See your Connection. Set your intention. Send gratitude. Create. Share. Connect.

And never forget to give back to her, our Great Mother. Give of your time, of your energy, of your healing intention. Know your power and use it wisely. Protect her. Put her first.

Namaste

Scrying ~ Intuition

Published October 31, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Scrying ~ Intuition, from The Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco

Scrying ~ Intuition, from The Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Scrying ~ Intuition, from The Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco

Scrying ~ Intuition:

“Soften your eyes
Begin the trance
Whole worlds are opened
Begin the dance”

“Scrying is the divination technique of seeing unconscious images (or images from the Divine or supernatural) appear upon or within a surface. People scry into a crystal ball, a black mirror, water, even the surface of ice. It is a very ancient technique and one traditionally enacted on Samhain – Halloween.

The keys to effective scrying are being as relaxed as possible, minimizing possible distractions, softening your gaze and allowing what comes.

The enemy of effective scrying is distraction… both from the inside and out. Turn off the phone, electric lights anywhere where you can see them, any music, and if you are scrying outdoors, take the time to settle into the environment and listen to all the noises so that your mind will not need to break your focus later.

If you regularly meditate you may wish to use those techniques or otherwise you can simply shut your eyes and focus on slowing your breath – this is usually very effective. If you have a specific question for the scrying medium, state it up front. Then, once you feel relaxed, turn your focus inwards. Imagine pulling your energy within you and then focus on the third eye point (the chakra point on the center of the forehead, just above and between the eyebrows) and imagine opening it. Then gaze in a soft unfocused way at your scrying surface and simply allow any images to form and observe what presents itself to you. Do not engage your rational mind – this is about receiving, not thinking!

Should you pull the Scrying card, I suggest you try it for starters. It also indicates that you may wish to develop your intuition further and not rely solely on the logical part of your mind for all the answers. True wisdom takes a balance of logic and imagination and intuition for true wisdom.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Here is an invitation to see between the realms. Make time for silence, and go within. What is your chosen tool on this magical day where the veils between the worlds thins, and we are able to see across the timelines? There is nothing to fear here, and only Love.

If you are going to try scrying at home or inside, you may want to smudge first, both the environment and yourself to clear the energy. Once this is done, you can start by encircling yourself with bright white love and light and setting the intention that only love may come to you and work through you. Then close your eyes, relax, and breathe some nice, deep breaths.

When you are ready open your eyes. Gaze softly and ask your angels and guides, archangels and ascended masters to be here now, working with you and through you for the Highest Good Of All and your highest good. Ask your question or set the intention that you will get the information that will most benefit you at this time. Do not try to guess or force anything, just keep breathing, keep gazing, keep inviting and making space for Divine wisdom and guidance. Know that you are safe, you are loved and you are protected. Listen and feel into it with all of your senses.

When you are done, take a few moments to breathe deeply again, this time with your eyes closed. Ask the angels if there is any additional information that you need at this time. Again, breathe and listen with your whole body. Send gratitude and ask that you receive any signs, messages, symbols or guidance in a clear and understandable way over the next few days.

Light a white candle and send love, light and blessings out into the Universe.

Then go put your Halloween costume on and have some fun!

Namaste

King Of Swords ~ Eagle

Published October 8, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
King Of Swords ~ Eagle, from the Animal Totem Tarot Card deck, by Leeza Robertson, Illustrated by Eugene Smith

Daily Angel Oracle Card: King Of Swords ~ Eagle, from the Animal Totem Tarot Card deck, by Leeza Robertson, Illustrated by Eugene Smith

King Of Swords ~ Eagle: “Have you ever noticed the higher you get, the less there is? Less oxygen, less noise, less greenery, fewer distraction, pretty much less of everything. Yet somehow, up here above the collection of shiny things, the height gives one space to commune with all things. To strip away that which is of little or no importance and shift the focus on what one really needs to thrive in this world of busy, filled up  space and time. Yes, the higher you go, the less there is, but in this lack of things the true wealth of your divine self will be revealed.”

~ Message From The Eagle

“The King Of Swords sits atop the world, and from where he sits, the world appears barren – yet looks can be deceiving. To harness the energy of the King one must learn to still one’s mind and drop away that which is nonessential. For the mind should only be required to focus on one thing at a time. From atop his mountain peak it is easy for the Eagle to focus on his present moment. Up where the air is thin, time ceases to exist. The clouds block out the sun so there is no way of telling night from day; this is a good thing, for it gives the mind one less thing to obsess over, or rather, one less distraction. The King of Swords knows that once his mind is clear and a decision has been made, he must plunge back down to earth, as being this high is only temporary.

The lesson is to leap with purpose, clarity, and precision. Knowing that no matter what, you have the ability to change course, navigate any and all obstacles, and ultimately hit your mark without effort. That is the clear focus of the King and that is the driving energy of the Eagle.”

Business and Career: “From the top of the mountain, can you finally see all of the opportunities that have been desperately trying to get your attention? If not, keep moving further away from the noise until you can, as there is something you are missing that you have been desperately seeking.”

Family and Relationships: “The King Of Swords is a leader; it is his job to see things others cannot see and maintain a certain amount of clarity and focus where other find themselves distracted. this is the energy you need to move into in your current relationship. It is up to you to stay focused on the bigger picture as those around you appear to be struggling.”

Health and Well Being: “The Eagle knows that he cannot stay up where the air is thin forever, and eventually he has to come back down to where his life actually takes place. The same can be said for those who spend more time in their heads than in their physical lives. Your health is not mental pursuit; it is a fully functioning activity that requires all of you to be present.”

Card of the Day Journal Prompts: “Can you hear your true soul voice on the wind and feel the support of the earth through the rock? In what area of your life do you need to change your point of view, in order to get a clearer picture of what is really going on? How can you step into the role of the King of Swords today?”*

~ By Leeza Robertson

Perspective is everything, and we humans are very prone to tunnel vision. We often see what is in front of us through the lens of past experience; we let our fears cast shadows on bright and positive possibilities. We cast aside opportunities that we talk ourselves out of due to lack of self confidence or self worth.

Yet, if we could rise above this, and see how we limit ourselves, we could finally free ourselves to experience things in a whole different way. A positive and open-hearted way. A confident and courageous way. We could even have fun with it. Yes. Fun.

It’s time to take a step back and look at things from a different perspective. Get some distance from your problems and get creative with solutions. Take a little break. Rest, relax and fly free for a while. Ask the Universe to provide help. Reach out to others and admit that you need assistance. Relinquish control.

Surrender  to the idea that things could go in a totally different direction. Maybe it will feel uncomfortable. Maybe it will scare you a little, or a lot. But, the best part? Things won’t stay the same. You can let go now. Let go and see what comes.

Namaste

Eight Of Cups

Eight Of Cups, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eight Of Cups, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Eight Of Cups: “The moon’s light is reduced to a soft glow, her outline obscured by the thick, billowing clouds blown about by the strong wind. Chaos reigns in the sky, in the air, and in his heart. His thoughts are tossed about, and he feels unsettled and uncertain, as if he is being pushed and pulled in every direction at once. If only the wind would stop; if only he could clearly see the moon. Then he would know which way to go.

But he does not need to see his beloved moon, for even though she is hidden from sight, he is connected to her energy. He wears her stone, a moonstone, near his heart. It is only the wind, only his thoughts, that are getting in the way. And so he settles himself before his stone basin and contemplates the water within, searching for his sign. He runs his hands lovingly around the outside of the basin, which is carved with images of the moon in all her incarnations, reminding him that by her very nature, she is changeable. Gazing into the water, he sees himself, his life, ever in motion, like the moon. He sees his heart, beating rhythmically, always true, resonating with the moon, together creating a strange and beautiful dance of steadiness and motion. Deep within, he finds his answer, and thus guided, he takes the first steps into darkness, not knowing his destination but trusting his inner direction.”

Divinatory Meaning: “There are times in life when everything seems fine. Life is stable and you should, logically, be quite content. There is nothing wrong, nothing that you can put your finger on. Yet in your heart, you know something is missing. The Eight Of Cups marks such a time. It tells you to quiet your thoughts, for you will not puzzle this out logically. The call comes from your heart. It is telling you that it is not satisfied, that it yearns for something else. It pushes and pokes you, increasing the unsettled feeling until you pay attention. Under the rational argument that everything is fine, that nothing needs to change, you will find the truth. You will know what needs changing and in which direction to go to begin your quest. You may not know your destination, but you will know how to begin.”*

~by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

One of the functions of the Soul is to nudge us towards our true life path. Our Soul, or Higher Self communicates with us through our intuition and the longings and whisperings of our hearts. Our Soul lets us know when something is missing, or when we are going in the wrong direction. The key is… are we listening?

What is missing cannot be found outside of us, it can only be found within. It is a journey. One that starts with an awakening. A transformation and a shift. Our Souls use this feeling to shake us awake. It uses this to beckon us inwards.

Can you hear it? Are you listening?

Namaste
