In The World, Not Of The World: “It is safe for you to become naked with life. This doesn’t necessarily mean stripping off and running wild in public. It does mean stripping back your beliefs, strongholds and mental or emotional security blankets so that you can live with less obstruction than ever before. Imagine the conditioning that has kept life away from you, just kept it dropping out of your hands like keys, coins or clocks. Conditioned beliefs about money, time, security, having, locking away, holding and controlling can be surrendered and allowed to fall away. What would it be like to feel like to feel as though you are on holiday every day? Perhaps there would be a softening in your way with life, an implicit trust in its flow and a faith in the ability of time to bend and stretch as needed so that all may be accomplished. It is at an advanced stage of our spiritual relationship with life that we are able to feel held within it sufficiently enough to surrender our defences, layer by layer and to nakedly accept what is.

This oracle comes as a message to you. Sometimes we need our defences. At other times, it is clear we are outgrowing them. There is something that you have outgrown. It has to do with our ideas about productivity, time, control and money. It has to do with abundance, trust and living with the fundamental belief that everything is going to turn out ok. You are ready to be much more vulnerable and exposed in life. You don’t have to hide behind being organized, perfect, in control or financially secure and stable. Nor do you need any other ‘acceptable’ social face. It is time for you to loosen the strings or your own controlling nature. They are too tight and too restrictive for you anyway. You were born to live in a much freer way. When you live as you innately are, rather than how you have been conditioned to be, you will experience greater joy, freedom and support. When you are not resisting yourself or resisting life, there is less resisting what you need as it comes to you.

If you have also drawn the oracle of Faith in the process, this is a particularly strong message for you. The message is that you are shedding. It might be an identity, it might be a status symbol such as a car, home or suburb and it could even be a socially admired relationship. You are shedding because no matter what the appearance of things, those old forms were too constricting for you. It is almost like your spirit was trying to walk about in shoes several sizes too small – they were starting to pinch, the seams were ripping and eventually they would fall apart completely.

Likewise,  you are being stripped of internal beliefs that are failing you, perhaps externally as well. Whether this seems to be your choice or not, make not mistake, it is your own spirit in cahoots with the loving spirit of life that has brought this situation about.

So, you are being guided to trust. If you have also drawn the oracle of Trust Yourself, then you are not only being guided to rely on life, but also on your own inner knowing because at some level, you get it. You understand and know that this is all freeing you. After letting go, there comes a temporary emptiness that provides a greater space for fulfillment to come forth.”

Healing Process: “Imagine you are running naked into a sea, ocean, river or waterfall. Be cleansed. Feel it happening. Be with it and enjoy the sensation of it. Feel freed of any weight that you no longer need, be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Let go on all levels.

When you are ready, just open your eyes and rest for a few moments before going back into your day or evening. You have completed your healing process.”*

See your limiting belief systems and baggage that you carry around everywhere with you. Instead of protecting you from being hurt, rejected, judged or abandoned, they are becoming heavy and so very awkward.. so hard to carry. You have been carrying them for so long you don’t realize how they are holding you back. You don’t realize how much energy they draw away from you, sucking away your passion, vitality and inspiration for life.

It’s time to put them down. Release them to be transmuted into freedom and possibility. Release them from your physical body where they have taken up residence in the form of aches, pains or dis-ease. Release them from your mind; see them for what they are and refuse to allow them to take up valuable real estate in your head. Know that they weight down your spirit, keeping your soul at a mere whisper. Release them and set your soul free.

Then and only then can you really be you. Then you can reinvent yourself and do what you came here to do. And then, you can create what you desire to create. With nothing standing in your way.

Imagine the possibilities of life without drama and limitation.

Namaste

Spirit Dancer, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit Dancer, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Spirit Dancer: “Self-Expression, Freedom, Exploration”

“The Spirit Dancer understands both sides of self-expression. In the first stage we get our inner vision, feelings, and creative impulse out into the world through our art, whatever that is. Then our expressions are reflected back to us from the mirror of other people’s perceptions, and we discover what our art awakens in them.

First and most important for many of us, we learn, grow, and lead more satisfying lives if we have ways of expressing our inner world. Such expressions can be a way of helping ourselves better understand our feelings and experiences. Or they can be a way of getting pain out where we can look at it and let it begin to heal. Creative expression is a method of exploring our own truth, bringing it into the light so we can see it more clearly , and maintaining sanity. The key words here are explore, experiment, and express. As this faery cryptically remarked to one Oracle reader, “The Death of Spirit Dancer is Perfection.”

Second, creative expression is a way of sharing and letting others see more of our true selves. It is a way that we can reach out from this illusion of separation and reaffirm our essential connections with one another. When we share a dance, a painting, or a poem with others, we do so with the hope that they will see something of what we have put into it and that their experience will echo ours in some way. But if we have done well, we will be able to add something to their experience. At the same time, we understand that their slant on things is a bit different and that what they reflect back to us by their response will perhaps contain something we have not seen about our own experience – a new insight, a different view, an expansion of our picture of reality. So this side of creative expression, the sharing part, enriches us in a different way than the actual creation. I have never written a poem or sculpted something without the experience changing me – and then changing me again when I shared it with others. This is something I have heard many others say, including many who do not consider themselves “real artists” or “real writers.”

Spirit Dancer encourages us to take creative action from our place of personal power, the inner core of true feelings and understanding within us. She wants us to clarify our vision, find the creative potential that lies hidden in paradox, confusion, and chaos, and turn these into a free-flowing, finely balanced, evolving order. She wants to aid us in making our best fantasies real.

She also is very enthusiastic about helping us to learn to dance well with the faeries, if we do not already know how. And if we do know how, she would still be delighted to dance with us just for the fun of it. Step out boldly!”

Starter Reading: “Now is the time to focus and really concentrate on a project or process, especially one involving the creative arts. Spontaneity balanced by self-discipline will  help us to achieve our goals. Strive for elegance and simplicity. This is a time to bring out and share qualities that we have nurtured in private.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Self-absorbed and obsessed, the reversed Spirit Dancer has become entangled in her own unexpressed and perhaps inexpressible fantasies. She feels angry and driven, and may be unable to express her feelings in any way except through destruction. Alternatively, this card may speak of the artist’s block. The cure for that is to just create. Even if the creation falls far short of our goals, even if it is trite, just do it. It is a matter of priming the pump until the waters of creativity, emotion, and inspiration flow freely.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

With freedom comes a lightness of being, if you allow it. If you allow yourself to fully embrace the freedom that is offered to you now. Can you receive this precious gift? Can you see how things have shifted and changed? Can you feel how you are now fully in control, fully responsible for creating your new reality? You have the gift of renewal, rebirth and re-creation of yourself. Where will you start?

What can you change today to let yourself know that this is real? Can you move your furniture around? Can you let your creative juices flow and make something wonderfully artistic? Wear something bold? Change your appearance up? Whatever you choose, do what feels right for you. The true authentic you. Show everyone how you want to present yourself to the world. Express yourself as creatively as you dare, and get more daring each day!

We cannot experience true joy when we are living by old belief systems, worrying what others will think, or trying to please people. We must step out and put ourselves first. With big open hearts, and open minds. Love all those unique aspects of you, and share them with the world. Doing so will inspire others to join you.

Find your grace, your harmony, your inner peace… and balance it with deep passion, vitality and zest for life. This is the recipe for reinventing yourself and your world. And you have everything you need to get to work and do it!

Go ahead and break the mold.

Crocoite

Published November 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Crocoite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Crocoite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Crocoite: “Sexuality”

Crystal Colour: “Vibrant Orange”
Related Chakra: “Sacral”

Crystal Medicine: “Crocoite is a powerful and dynamic crystal only found in Tasmania, Australia. It is one of a kind and its medicine deeply resonates with vibrations of life-force energy. It works closely with the fire element, assisting in burning away any blockages that stop you truly living in the creative flow of universal energy. It is one of a kind and its medicine deeply resonates with vibrations of life-force energy. It works closely with the fire element, assisting in burning away any blockages that stop you truly living in the creative flow of universal energy. It deeply assists the transformation of any issue related to sexuality and activates the Kundalini life-force energy in the body.”

Crystal Meaning:

“~Activates the Kundalini energy
~Invokes deep sexual and life-force energy
~Deepens connection to sensuality
~Enhances Tantric Union
~Assists in expressing creativity”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “This powerful card indicates it is time to open up to the powerful life-force energy of the cosmos and to your own sexuality. The universal creative energy flows through you deeply at all times and is a natural part of life. It is now time to heal any wounds and is a natural part of life. It is now time to heal any wounds around sexuality and come back into your power, working with this energy consciously in your life. Your sexual energy is your creative energy – opening up to this dynamic essence can transform your world. The devas emphasize that your sexuality is a sacred and integral part of who  you are. Work with them as you open and heal old perceptions, wounds, and even judgments you have made around sex. Once you release negative beliefs and restrictions and allow yourself to break free of social constraints, you will set yourself free. The devas urge you to honor yourself as a divine and sacred sexual being. If you are uncomfortable or feel you have wounds about sexuality, seek the support and guidance of a professional who can assist your healing process and allow this part of you to heal, grow, and express itself. You are also guided to work closely with the magical medicine of Crocoite to support your awakening to the life-force energy of the cosmos. It is time to set yourself free and dance in the sexual creative energy of the Universe in a positive light.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

With all the trauma bubbling up to the surface right now, it is not surprising that this message comes to us. This is a time of transparency and it is a time of deep emotional healing. It is the end of an era, and the beginning of something much more honest. It will be the celebration of equality that replaces the hierarchy of fear and domination.

One day objectification will be looked upon as atrocious; just as sexual assault is now. Finally. One day people will be loved and accepted for who they are, not chased and tormented as something to be owned. Those who attempt to use their power to intimidate will be left alone, isolated, ostracized; unable to bully, coerce or force themselves on others. One day.

One day we will stand up for ourselves and say that enough is enough and we quite literally won’t take it anymore. One day. That day is not so far, it is within reach.

But until that day comes, we will heal ourselves from the inside out. We will hear each others stories. We will honour each others pain. We will hold space for each others progress from the deep dark mud of it all into the light. No story will remain untold. No agressor will remain innocent and no victim will go unheard.

And then we can bloom again. Bigger and bolder and brighter than ever before. We can create something brand new. We can manifest a whole new way of being in this crazy world and transform it as we do so.

Supporting each other as we reach for the stars.

Namaste

Whirling Goddess

Published October 22, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Whirling Goddess, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Whirling Goddess, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Whirling Goddess:

“Lose your head!
Not a single thread that has a head
can go through the eye of the needle.”
~ RUMI

“Come, my love, are you dizzy yet? If you can still find your feet then that is okay with me, but if you can still find your head then I will take issue! There is a great dance, but it cannot be danced with choreographed steps. No, this great dance demands a response rather than an initiation, a reaction rather than a direction. So let us dissemble and lose our heads to the great music, the rhythm held stead in our beating hearts. Our feet shall be moving whilst our minds, inadequate to the task, take the night off.”

“There is somewhere you are meant to be. It is here, now, in this moment. There is a gift right under your nose, and fragrant wine in your glass, gleaming red as the most precious rubies. To be here, now, you must pass through the keyhole. But your head will tell you this is not possible unless the door is unlocked, even though your body is passing through the keyhole of that locked door into the endless world beyond. Leave your mind to be in its struggles for a moment. Without you laying witness to it, your ind will become like the dog howling for his master’s return, even as he steps out the front door. Frustrated temporarily, he will chew on some shoes, then fall asleep peacefully until his master returns. So leave your mind trusting, chewing a little, until you are truly through the keyhole when it can rest. Leave it be; instead, come dance with me.

This oracle brings you a message. You are at the point of growth where your mind can hold you back rather than urge you forward. If you have, like so many used your mind to support you, to sure up your sense of self in the world and to gain a sense of certainty about how the world works, then this is no easy leap! It will seem as though you are beings asked to pass through the keyhole. Of course, you  mind will stop and argue for all the reasons why the door should be opened instead of remaining closed, making the task seem so much harder than it needs to be, but this is the mind in resistance. Don’t place too much stock in the claims that life should be other than it is. You are being asked to dance, rather than understand, o lay the thoughts to rest and to come alive. It is the bravest, most trusting soul that dares put the mind to one side and say, “Tonight we dance, my heart and I, in the great rousing music of the beloved’s beating heart – and I will not miss one step.” And to awaken the next day and do it all over again – and again, and again.

You are ready, you see, sweet soul dancer. You are ready to live beyond what you know, to have it not matter if you don’t understand how life can work itself out, or how it could be that someone so normal and ordinary as you and I could also be so magnificent, wild and divine. The need for answers and plans, assurances and explanations, is passing out of your world now. You are not to wait for permission, for explanation, or even for another dance partner, for I am already inviting you on to the great dance floor. You are to let go of any stigma around not knowing. When someone asks you what you are going to do next, or how you are going to manage, you are given this divine mandate – with relish, reveal the truth: “I do not know!”

Know nothing and dance sweet soul, for all will unveil itself to you in perfect harmony and timing. Your heart shall create the steps in response to the music of the spheres, happening now, alive and spontaneous, and free.

This oracle brings you a special message. If there is an issue, apparently unsolvable or unknowable, in your life now, the Divine is handling it. The Divine is in the middle of it, working through the knot and unraveling it. Fear not; do the sacred ritual, and give yourself permission to take the night off from worry. Repeat this heavenly prescription daily as needed.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Say aloud: “I give my heart permission to lead this dance. I give my mind some time off – no more worry or doubt, planning or resisting. Instead, I surrender. Instead, I open. Instead, I allow, I allow, I allow. And all unfolds with perfection, divine timing and the miracle of grace. With Rumi as my soul witness, so be it.”

You have completed your honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

And here we have another message of faith. Lose the mind for a night. As Doreen Virtue would say: “Let go and let God.” Stop the worry, the doubt, the fear. Stop fretting and just surrender. Know that you are being assisted. Know that the outcome will be all the better for you stepping away for just a little while. Focus on something else and give your mind a break as things are worked on behind the scenes. Dare to shift your focus completely… even have a little fun and take a break from the responsibilities just for a little while!

I tell my kids to blow their worries into imaginary balloons and release them to the Universe before they go to sleep at night. Anything that is rattling around in their heads, anything that might keep them awake. We have a whiteboard too, so that anything that needs to be accomplished tomorrow can be listed, then released for the evening. This is really helpful for those whose minds immediately fill with a loop of worries as soon as their exhausted heads hit the pillow. Send it off to the angels to sort out for you and ask to wake up with new ideas, solutions and clarity of mind to deal with whatever comes up.

This is also a message about breaking through the self-imposed limitations of the mind that we have been carrying all our lives. Those things that ‘stuck’ with us that others told us about ourselves that are simply not true but we choose to believe them; and  by doing so gave them some sort of twisted truth in our lives. It is about reforming our belief systems; about revamping how we see ourselves and what we are capable of.

It is about finding our joy. About leading with the heart and putting the mind on the back burner for a while while we experience a new freedom of creative expression.

Life is too short to have it any other way.

Namaste

Key Of Light

Published September 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Key Of Light, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Key Of Light, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Key Of Light: “Archangel Michael loves you unconditionally and serves your soul journey. He brings you a spiritual gift now, the Key Of Light. This key allows you to open any door, clear away any obstruction and free yourself from any prison or enslavement – physical, emotional or psychological. there is no need for ou to feel trapped or locked out of a situation you want to get into. You now hold with your hands a divine key that will assist you in many ways.”

“Archangel Michael has a message for you: You have the power of the Divine in you. You have the ability to free yourself, no matter whether it seems that another person, a set of circumstances, or the entire world holds more power than you. Your power of freedom is unconditional. It does not require that outer circumstances change in order for you to be free – though as you choose freedom, outer circumstances often change radically.

For now, to be free, use the Key Of Light. This means staying true to what you know for yourself. Gently and lovingly assert your truth now. Do not cave in to naysayers and fear generators; most especially do not collapse under your own old fears or doubts. Gently and persistently cleaving to the light within will bring you through any apparent obstacle, free you from any apparent prison and ensure your divine destiny is fulfilled. All doors shall be opened to you. You are being given a gift of unconditional grace.

Step back and radiate love from your center. That is your way. You do not have to betray your spirituality to fight. You can fight with love and trust that can be your way as a spiritual warrior. In each moment you choose love and trust,  you are fighting the good fight. You are learning that love is expressed in no as much as in yes – for when you fight against those who want you to deny the truth, you are standing clear and strong in loving truth. Michael helps you realize the strength that you already have within you to do this.

This oracle is a message for you to trust in your own ability to triumph, right now. You are the key to success! You must believe in yourself. You do not have to force a door to open. In perfect time, according to divine grace, all doors will open for you.

Your dreams and actions will prove themselves in time. No person, place or thing has any power to hold you back. The Key Of Light is spiritual permission from the Universe to succeed in your life mission. You shall not be kept back from you divine destiny. You shall be empowered to succeed.

Refuse to give up on your dreams. This may mean freeing yourself from situations or relationships that have enslaved or controlled you. When you are ready, this can be done with great gentleness, compassion and strength. Free yourself with love, not fear. You may need to lock doors to the past behind you. With divine empowerment, you can completely and utterly allow the past to be over. You will find that new doors can then be unlocked for you.”

Invocation

“I call upon Archangel Michael and the Key Of Light. I give thanks for the divine gift of liberation from any restraining circumstance. I give thanks for the opportunity to completely close any door I choose and open any door I choose. I am grateful to the loving encouragement of the Universe reminding me that I will be successful in fulfilling my divine life purpose. May I be assisted by unconditional love to use my power of freedom with wisdom. May all beings be blessed by the grace of the Divine, so that the past ceases to hold them in pain and new opportunities of love can be accepted. May humanity open the door to light and love within. Through my own free will, and the unconditionally loving guides that serve human evolution, so be it.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

The key of light to me right now is represented by the Ankh, a powerful Egyptian symbol that looks similar to the Christian cross, but instead with a loop at the top. It is the key of light and the key of Life itself. A key to higher realms of conscious existence. A key to awakening to something much bigger than ourselves. It is a symbol of infinite life, a symbol of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine aspects united as One. It is also a symbol of protection and connection to the higher dimensions and Sirian beings.

Today we are being offered the Key of Light. The key of Life. The key to the Universe. What does this key open? That is only for you to find out, as each key will be personal and slightly different. Each key will be unique to the one who receives it. Each key will open a door to opportunity. A door that may have previously been unavailable or seemingly stuck shut.

You may have traded something close to your heart for this key. You may still be hurting from a great letting go. You may feel there is a new space there, tender and raw and open. The key of Light can fill this space with possibility.

Open and receive your key of Light. Stretch out your arms to accept it with open heart. Use it to open the doors to your dreams, fulfilling your destiny.

And so it is

Namaste

Dionysus

Published August 12, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dionysus, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dionysus, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Dionysus: “Freedom”

The Myth: “Dionysus is the son of Zeus and the mortal Semele. While Semele was pregnant with Dionysus, Hera, disguised as an old woman, convinced Semele to make Zeus prove he was a god. Semele asked Zeus to swear an unbreakable oath to grant her a favor. He agreed, and was thus forced to reveal his true nature when she demanded it. Zeus appeared as a bolt of lightning, and its fire consumed Semele. Zeus saved Dionysus by sewing him into his thigh until it was time for him to be born, giving Dionysus two births.

Dionysus is the wise god of nature, vegetation, wine and music. He embodies the ecstasy and intoxication of unity and the dissolving of barriers. He is known as the liberator, freeing humankind from the chains of the mundane through music, wine, madness and ecstasy.

The Message: “Ecstasy is the transcendence of the ordinary state. It is an altered state of consciousness, a type of trance that moves us beyond our own self-awareness into a unified awareness. This state heightens our thought processes, intensifies our emotions, expands our spiritual awareness, and enhances our physical abilities. Dionysus instigates the trance that ushers us into his realm of ecstatic awareness.

Dionysus represents the freedom of the senses and the liberation of the civil and dutiful mind. His appearance in your cards signifies a deep connection to art, music and poetry and points you toward obtaining freedom through catharsis.

If your life has become overwhelmed by mundane routine, though and existence, Dionysus is here to shake you awake. This is the time for freeing your senses and finding your true voice, your dance. It is a time to break free from the rules of the civil world, to find your own way instead.

If you have drawn this card, liberation is at hand. the key to this liberation will come through deep catharsis – an intense, climactic, emotional experience that leaves you feeling renewed, revitalized, and reborn. The experience will smash the psychological barriers that bind you – the experience of religious or spiritual ecstasy, the total experience of unity with all that is, the ecstatic experience of god within and without.”*

~by Carisa Mellado

Our society has a twisted sense of ecstasy. As soon as you hear the word, what do you think of? The drug? Illicit sex? Hedonism? It’s all gone sideways and our minds are so used to being in the gutter it’s hard to imagine another realm of reality.

Yet, what if the most pure form or ecstasy is found within our deep connection to the Divine? Is that not what the ancient Guru’s sought in the caves high in the Himalayan mountains? The ecstasy that could only be found when the ego mind was surpassed and our Souls reached out to touch Source energy itself? Ecstasy is not a quickie, it’s not a fast distraction away from responsibility. It can’t be found in a meaningless connection. Ecstasy is the greatest gift we are given; the ability to open ourselves up and receive Unconditional Love.

Ecstasy is stepping past the feeling of stagnancy and lethargy. It is being fully awake and fully aware, present, alive. It is feeling the beat of the music of life with your whole being and all of your senses. It is about throwing yourself into your life with passion and inspiration.

So how do we find it here? We find it through joy and lightness of Being. We find it in Love, both given and received. Not in empty physical connection, but true, heart centered loving sacred union; or through the strength of the bonds love that we feel for our family, pets and friends. We find it when we are passionate about a cause, when we truly step onto our Soul path and become of service. Through refusing to repeat a pattern ad nauseum in our lives, but learning and moving forward. It’s about releasing habits and limiting belief systems, taking risks and opening up to opportunity. It is about grasping life by the horns and riding it wildly, even if that is completely out of character!

Stir things up. Get sensual in your creative self-expression. Get out of your box and fly free for a while. You deserve it, and it will do you a world of good.

Namaste
