Daily Angel Oracle Card: Oir Spindle, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, Illustrated by Jimmy Manton

“Oir Spindle represents sudden flashes of insight and brings illumination and clarity. She is about fulfillment and delight – in particular, the fulfillment that comes after the completion of tasks. Therefore, this tree encourages us to put aside our excuses, evasions, and denial. We are encouraged to get to work and complete our goals so we can fulfill our aspirations. Spindle helps us to fulfill obligations so we can move forward. She rewards us for doing the very best we can. The ogham for Spindle is Oir and the letters are OI and TH. It is represented by the helmet, and is formed by the index fingers and thumbs touching at their tips.”

Oir Spindle In A Reading: “This card offers you sudden insight and clarity. This tree is about enlightenment. You are asked to remember that you are being of light and to see the light in every person you meet and every situation you enter. This tree brings illumination and insight.

When you receive Oir Spindle in a reading, you are promised fulfillment. But the key is that you must do the work. Lay aside your reluctance and your excuses. Get busy. Success is promised, but first must come labour. Spindle will help you to fulfill the necessary steps and give you the energy to complete your work. Choose to do your best and apply your energy to the tasks at hand. True sweetness comes from fulfilling these tasks to the best of your ability.

If you are trying to make a decision, you are advised to investigate. Get all the relevant facts. Do your due diligence. When you have gathered the information, you can make an informed decision, choose and begin.

Spindle is a good wood for making pegs, bobbins, and spindles – all practical tools. You may have a project that has to do with woodworking. What practical tools do you need to create or gather to fulfill your task at hand? What expertise do you need? Who can you go to for guidance or help? what skills do you need? Make a practical plan. Consider time, money, and practicalities.”

As Challenger: “You may have to wait for your fulfillment. Keep to the task at hand. Don’t lose faith. Are you feeling impatient and impulsive? Practice patience. Your rewards will come through your determination and persistence.

This is a good time to carefully evaluate the situation. What must be addressed before right action can be undertaken? Let the transformative forces do their work. You stand on a threshold and may feel stymied, but in truth, it is time to consider all that has brought you to this gateway. Don’t bluster your way through things now. Rather, take your time and avoid hasty decisions that may bring you more difficulty. Pause before you step through and begin your next action or activity. Count your blessings. Ask for help as you need it.

If you are uninspired, allow the light to penetrate your being. Rest. If you can’t see the forest for the trees, ask Spindle for sudden revelation and clarity. Breathe in the teachings of Spindle.”

Message: “I am the Oir Spindle, and I bring you hope for the future. I sustain you with new light as you move towards your goals. I bring clarity and insight. I illuminate new possibilities. I am the promise of that which you long to create. I offer you the strength and encouragement to fulfill your goals. I offer you sweetness and delights.

Gather what you need to complete a task or project. Get busy. I offer you sustenance to do the work that will ensure the fulfillment of your goals. We are partners in the business of applying energy to ideas and bringing plans to fruition.

Notice what you already have that is full of beauty and contentment. Pat yourself on the back for all that you have completed, for a job well done. Take some time to enjoy the fruits of your labours, before You plunge into the next project or endeavour.

I am the candle within you. What inspires you? How can you keep that inner light burning, even in great darkness? I help you embrace change and appreciate your own insight and sudden flashes of knowing. I help you awaken, take yourself seriously. I am your hope and your inner light, and I am here to remind you of your awesome potential and creative nature. Let me inspire you. Let me fill you with a sense of contentment and the realization that you have done well.”

~ by Sharlyn Hidalgo

This is a very auspicious message of your hard work coming to fruition, fulfillment on your personal journey, a feeling of success and completion, and a job well done. You are so close! Almost there…but there’s still a bit to do yet.

When you undertake your tasks with determination and commitment, and put your heart and soul into them, the payoff is supreme. This is not a rushed job, trying to get it done and over with, this is a masterpiece worth your efforts; the blood, sweat and tears are all for good reason.

It has to do with where you have put your focus of late. What you so truly wish to create. But you must do it step by step. Do not rush things. Let them unfold naturally and do the work as it comes to you. Dot your  i’s and cross your t’s take; pride in what you are doing.

This is also a time when taking care of yourself is vital. Eating well, staying hydrated, exercising regularly and resting when you need it is all so important. Listen to your body. It is all part of the process. Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit.

Namaste

Three Of Bows

Published October 8, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Bows from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthingtonartwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Bows from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Three Of Bows: “Fulfillment”

Card Description: “A robed figure stands at the junction of two ways, one hand raised in blessing, the other holding a bow. Two bow staves, make from freshly cut branches, trimmed but still rough hewn, stand planted in the earth on either side of the road, forming a gateway through which the figure offers welcome to the approaching traveler.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Nourishment from a spiritual source gives inner security and joy. Goals and desires are reached, making life rich with emotional scrutiny and a sense of completion.”

Reading Points: “The archer must be at one with the bow to fully direct its potential energy, and just as the arrow passes through the bow, propelling it to its target with effortless grace, the questing heart and seeker of knowledge allows the energy to flow through him. This combination of balanced energy and intellectual focus enables the mastering of any situation and allows your arrows to fly completes an unseen, universal circuit. The inner stillness and focus thus produced is easily apparent and observable to others, and builds a sense of trust, confidence and security in those for whom you are responsible. This inner shining energy will inspire others to start out on their own path of discovery and sojourn to fulfillment.”

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

The double serpents entwined represents the caduceus, the symbol of healing, life and spiritual wisdom. It is male and female energy in perfect balance. It is the spiral of DNA, our very makeup. It is the kundalini energy rising, chakras aligning, the body opening like a vessel connecting the Earth below to the Universe above. It is a very powerful symbol.

The man raises his hand in a blessing, palm raised to the sky. This also symbolizes the flowing of the reciprocal energy between heaven and Earth, above and below. His bow is lowered, a sign of peace. There is a feeling of momentum, his cloak flying behind him in the wind. He is a formidable figure, one to be honoured and respected. He stands before the world tree on what appears to be the edge of a cliff. Two trails wind on either side of the tree; signifying a decision to be made. The fact that his face is hidden and you must pass on either side signifies that the decision on which way to go is yours to make.

Which way will you go?

The Three Of Bows is a card of fulfillment. This means that the way you choose will be the one that most satisfies your heart’s desires. Only you know how to make this decision. All your resources are within you. You have everything you need in order to move forward.

Set your intention, follow your heart and let your intuition guide your way.

Namaste

Open Your Heart

Open Your Heart, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, Artwork by Jason Mccreadie

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Open Your Heart, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, Artwork by Jason Mccreadie

Open Your Heart~ Archangel Chamuel: “Thank you Chamuel for removing the barriers around my heart.”

General Meaning Of The Card: “The angels are encouraging you to open your heart at this time. Because of the emotional ties and let downs of your past you have created barriers surrounding your heart energy that will stop people coming into your life and stand in the way of loving experiences. It is important for you to realize that the past no longer exists and the only place where you are powerful is the present. Your heart may be feeling broken, but it is completely whole and all you have to do is remember that ultimately you are love.”

Expanded Interpretation Of The Card: “There are opportunities for you to love and be loved at this time. This card brings positive, loving and even romantic experiences into your life so you can feel whole again. You are an old romantic at heart and it is the small things that count to you. By taking this opportunity to open your heart and let love in, you will allow yourself to settle, be romanced and have a positive, balanced relationship. The Angels want you to know it is safe to love and trust any new relationships in your life at this time.”

About Archangel Chamuel: “Chamuel’s name means ‘He who sees God’ and he is the Angel of Love. His aura is pure white and ruby red and his purpose is to help us to see opportunities to love. When he shows up in a reading, he can signify a soul-mate bond or relationship. He helps us to enjoy our loved ones and feel as sense of peace concerning our purpose, which is to be happy and fulfilled.”*

Today is the last day of May. Take a moment to reflect and acknowledge how far you have come so far this year. What have you released? What are you still holding on to? What can you do today to leave it all behind and step into June with an open heart?

There is so much opportunity coming to you this month, if you are open to seeing and receiving it. Make space for it now. Let go of any old resentment or fear. Let go of limiting belief systems, particularly those that tell you what you are worth or capable of. You are about to have a chance to change everything for the better. Believe it. Know it in your heart. Do not let fear hold you back from your true life purpose.

Everything you desire is here for you now. Open up to it. It may not look exactly as expected. That is fine. Be your own advocate. Use your thoughts and feelings to draw what is yours to you. There is a very special opportunity coming to you next month. Will you take it?

Namaste

The World Tree

Published April 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The World Tree, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The World Tree, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The World Tree: “In this card, the elementals, in their relation to the changing of the seasons, are reflected though the branches of the World Tree. The snake of wisdom, sometimes considered to be a beautiful serpent or a dragon, lies at the roots of the tree, for wisdom is the foundation of growth. The branches of this tree reside in the midst of the universe, equally balanced by the Sun and the Moon, God and Goddess, with its roots transiting the shadowy realms below, ruled by the Divine in their aspects of Hunter and Crone, lord of Shadows and Lady of Wisdom. The image reflects the formula of ‘as above, so below,’ with the image of the tree distilling the cosmic cycles with those of the earth and the individual. This card reflects the celebration and joy of achievement and of a successfully conducted effort, yet the card acknowledges that this ending is actually teh prelude to a fresh start. The World Tree of good conclusions and joyful new beginnings leads to the Greenman as the cycle is resumed.

There may be the attainment of objectives, or honours and material gains that lead to greater responsibilities, but with this comes a quickening that hints at more lying just beneath the surface. The motion of the cosmos is evident, and the cycles of life and the substrata of the moments of life are recognized as merely markers on the soul’s journey in the physical, spiritual, mental, or emotional planes. It is the end of one era and the beginning of another, good conclusions and joyful new beginnings. This card is one of hope and optimism in the face of inevitable change, for change is part of life.

A large ash tree, representing stability, connections, astral realms, spirits, and magical strength, is traditionally seen as the World Tree. The graceful serpent, a symbol of wisdom, cycles, and regeneration, weaves its way through the roots of the tree. A white crane flies by the tree and represents cycles, transformation, and the union of the otherworld, middleworld, and underworld.”

Meaning Of The World Tree Card: “Wholeness, Objectives Attained, Good Conclusions, End of a Matter, Time for Something New, Completion, Success, Joy, Advancement, Achievement, Fulfillment, Recognition, All is in Balance, Transition, Honours, Perfection, Reassurance.”

The World Tree Card As Challenger: “Unfinished Work or Project, Unresolved Situation, Success Brings New Burdens, Seeking Attainment, Payback, Stagnation of Efforts, More Work Needed.”

Prompt Words: “Completion, Wholeness”

~ By Ann Moura

Hmmmm again we have the white crane flying by… the World Tree. Did you take a moment to gaze into the image? There is so much symbolism in this card. It’s captivating. Profound. The seasons are here, the sacred cycles of the Great Mother. As above so below. The World Tree stretches from the center of the Earth to the Cosmos; feet planted firmly, arms outstretched to the heavens. Deep connection resides here, the green of the Heart center. There is so much healing here, wisdom and healing of the serpent; the kundalini energy rising from the bottom of the trunk. The Great Sun. The Mystical Moon. Spring and Summer and Fall and Winter are brought together for a moment in time. There is the hint of the elementals peering through the realms, bright eyes flickering, taking it all in.

And here you are that very white crane. That is you. Flying high, eyes still on the starry sky. Now you have the wisdom and the freedom to use it. Your heart is open to receiving. Anything is possible now. Keep going. You are on the right trajectory.

Namaste

Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing

Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing, from the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Wang Yiguang

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing, from the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Wang Yiguang

“You have a journey ahead of you. There is a particular path that you are meant to take, so that you shall be in the right place at the right time, to encounter the experiences that you are meant to have and the people that you are meant to meet. This journey will lead you across the water, far away from what you have known. To bear the crossing of the water, you must lose sight of the shore. It is part of your destiny, your sacred life path, to take this journey. So although you may feel excitement or fear, hope or uncertainty about whether you are up to the task, know that it is meant for you and Grandmother shall watch over you. She shall give you means for the journey and ensure that the crossing of the water is safely undertaken. Be light of heart, beloved, even as you may mourn what is left behind, for this journey is divinely blessed and will bring great success.”

“There are times in life when we must cross the water if we are to grow rather than wither and retract. To grow requires courage but offers the reward of radiance and fulfillment beyond what we have experienced. To cross the water implies more than simply taking a trip, it refers to a more life-changing experience of committing to and taking a journey. A journey is not only an external experience, it is an internal adventure too. Whilst a trip is interesting perhaps and gives us some nice experiences but fundamentally leaves us the same person upon return, a journey changes us on the inside. A journey is as much, if not more so, about the process of travel itself. The internal growth that comes through taking a journey – a journey that leads us beyond what we have known and asks us to ‘cross the water’ into new territory – is what marks it as a divine adventure.

Such an adventure offers us opportunities to mature – to open our minds, to become wiser, more tolerant, more curious and less certain of how life should be. We can experience ourselves in different ways. It can be uncomfortable but exciting, certainly it will involve venturing into the unknown. We may have to leave behind support systems in many senses and become more reliant upon ourselves and the inner guidance of our heart. When a journey is meant to be, however, the Divine Mother will provide the necessary tour guide or person with greater experience to help you along your journey. If you have also drawn the oracle of Sacred Sherpa Guides you Beyond, or feel intuitively the need to read the message and complete the healing process for that card, then a significant aspect of this journey will be trusting in an experienced guide to help you through your journey. This guide may be an actual person, or it may be information as well as spiritual protection, that comes to you as needed. Even if you do not feel drawn to that card, this oracle of Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing confirms that whatever hep or divine protection you need is there for you. It may just be that you experience it as a sense of invisible but palpable protection or ‘luck’ and ‘good timing’ to help you throughout your travels.

The crossing of water meant for you at this time – or imminently – may be in a physical sense. Opportunities to travel can arise where you choose to leave the home you have known to literally go venturing overseas.

There are also other profound ways to cross the water that may or may not accompany a physical relocation. These crossings of the water are where we leave behind a state of being or consciousness in favour of another. That may include releasing a sense of self, of identity, of certainty about ourselves or the world, to bravely venture towards an as-yet-unknown destiny. We will have little idea as to what we are doing or where we are headed at times. We will likely feel lost and out of place, sometimes not really feeling like we belong anywhere in particular nor having really settled and found our home or place in the world. Even in our place of birth we may feel we are a stranger passing through. Having such experiences is a sign that a journey across the water is taking place, symbolic and internal, but just as real.

The oracle of Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing indicates that not only are you on the journey but you must keep looking. You have somewhere to go, a home to find, but you have not quite found it yet. there is something more for you to discover about yourself and your place in the world. There is a part of you that understands this. Perhaps you have fought it, tried to fit in with the ways of those around you, yet you are urged to remain true to the yearnings of your soul and continue your adventures. Do not imagine that where you currently find yourself is to be your resting place. There is more for you in your life, further adventure awaits you.

There will be a sense that every life lesson you have struggled through and mastered will have bearing and offer support to navigate the journey you are taking now or will soon embark upon. The emotional component of your journey may include grief and feelings of insecurity as you let go of the familiar. The gift tantalizingly offered as the treasure you seek on your adventure will inspire you to move beyond what has been comfortable, to take a risk for the mere possibility that you could obtain your heart’s deepest desires and live a life you truly know you were created to live.

This particular journey and the discontent or curiosity about ‘something more’ that triggers its beginning is meant to be. Reward will certainly come; whether it is the reward you imagine now or one even more wonderful and miraculous than you can currently fathom, that can only be determined in time and only realized through the experience. There are no guarantees given as to how your journey will unfold, just that you have had all the preparation you need, even if you doubt your readiness and that the ancient wisdom of the Divine Mother in the form of Grandmother will protect you. When the time is upon you, when you feel the stirring of discontent or the call of the wild to grow and expand, you are best to answer with a huge, heartfelt YES!

The sanctuary, guidance and protection of the Hold Grandmother is with you to ensure the success of your journey. Grandmother watches over the weaving of past, present and future. She understands that what happens now is the planting and fertilizing of the soul seed which will come to blossom more fully in accordance with your divine life purpose. She will nudge you when you need to be nudged, comfort you when you become uncertain, and provide the means for you to take step after step towards your destination. She is the representative of the Holy Mother. She will ensure safe passage, no matter how arduous, challenging or downright intimidating the prospect of the journey of transformation may seem. Grandmother lives within your heart as wisdom and has the power to attract whatever is needed to assist you on your journey. Believe in the journey, beloved wild child, and in your ability to see the steps before you and take them. Reaching your destination will then happen of its own accord, and by the time you get there the journey will have matured you to be absolutely ready to receive your fulfilling grace.

This oracle comes with a particular message, a guarantee of supreme success in a venture you are considering. It will as you to grow, but the success is there for you if you are willing to take the journey.

If you have been considering a move or profound life change then this oracle comes as confirmation that not only are you meant to be taking that journey, but that the Divine will ensure protection and success. Life changes here could be those of career, religious or spiritual matters, life style or even sexual orientation. It could be any choice that feels as though it will take you more truthfully into your essence, even whilst in the process causing some upheaval for others as well.

Remember to complete the following healing process. Surrender your control around how the journey unfolds and where it leads you. Start with your commitment to take the journey and then trust your heart to lead you each step of the way.”

Healing Process: “Say this prayer. If you are already ‘on your journey’ and times are challenging, you may like to say it each morning and night.

‘Kuan Yin, who loves me without condition, Holy Grandmother, who cares for my soul with merciful grace, watch over me, protect me, guide me on all levels of my being in all possible ways. Help me take the journey before me now with courage and wisdom. Give me clear signs to follow and help me to realize the strength I have within me to rise to any challenge. Help me find the courage within to explore beyond what I have known, and to feel and trust in the guiding wisdom and power of my own heart. Through your blessing, my supreme success is ensured. Thank you for your gracious blessings. I receive with an open heart and willing mind. Through my own free will, so be it.’

Once you have said the prayer, you have finished your healing process.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

This journey is both physical and metaphorical. As you commit to embarking on your Spiritual Quest, assistance comes in many forms. The journey you are about to commence will be one of many twists and turns. It will change you. Transform you. It will be life changing in ways you cannot yet comprehend, or even imagine. It will stretch you and expand you beyond your comfort zones in many areas. It will break down barriers and it will lead from Earth to Stars.

Yet there is so much comfort here. Divine Grandmother soothes your doubts and fears; she nourishes your Soul and prepares you for the challenges ahead. Her great wisdom permeates your Soul, and you are held fast in her protective embrace. You feel the Oneness in All; your deep connection to her. Although you have no idea now of how this journey will end, you know that she will be with you each and every step of the way.

Connect to the elements now, for they are your allies. Honour them by creating a sacred altar. Add something special to you as an offering to Divine Grandmother, Spider Goddess, Old Woman, Crone. Know that her magic is woven of the Light and will always catch you when you feel yourself fall.

Change is all around us now. Be it as deeply as you can.

Dive right in.

Namaste

Gahesha ~ Belonging

Published December 16, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Belonging ~ Ganesha, from the Whispers Of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Belonging ~ Ganesha, from the Whispers Of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel card: Belonging ~ Ganesha, from the Whispers Of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Belonging ~ Ganesha: “Learn to find security from within”

“In this card, Ganesha uses the mouse as his vehicle, which signifies his triumph over the ego. In Hindu mythology, the mouse symbolizes the ego, for the ego can eat away at all that is good and decent in a person.

Belonging seeks to solve the predicament of the ego’s own perceived separation. Since the ego has no conscious memory of its connection to others and to Source, you experience a ‘need’ to get out of seclusion by bonding with the people around you. These people can be your family, peer groups, or your community.

The ego is neither good nor bad, but simply a necessary part of you in this existence. The ego can manifest inclinations that are either more positive or more negative in nature. There are many positive aspect to belonging: you develop your ability to love, connect, bond, share, and care for others. You see yourself more clearly through the mirror of relationship. It is important in belonging that you not try to seek approval through others.

Through this card, Ganesha is here to help you focus on the positive feelings from being a part of a community. Learn to trust, ask for help, and to rely on others.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Again we are asked to strengthen our connection to community, as well as extending that same connection to others. We do this without expectation or hope of approval. We do it from the heart, from gratitude and from kindness and generosity. We find fulfillment in being a part of an intricate network of communication and sharing with others of like mind, on equal ground. We must get past the old ways of hierarchy, of people climbing their way to the top… of competition and segregation and exclusion.

We are the New Earth. We are a global community. We can be here for each other. Support each other. Love each  other and heal each other. We can build something so strong, so wise and so amazing that it will topple the old system. We can create a brand new way of living, of being in the world. Of creating a world of safety, of security, of abundance. This is healing.

This is huge, this call to community. It is absolutely essential that we learn to celebrate our differences and unique qualities while accepting the peaceful belief systems, cultures, religions, rituals and appearances of others. We don’t need to decide who is right and who is wrong, we only need to learn to accept them as they are, and have faith that they will find their way in the same way that we are finding our own.

If we can find a way to work together, this is what will create peace and ascension. This is what will heal us and heal the planet. But we must put away the lack mentality, the victim mentality, the aggressor mentality. We must create a circle, equal on all sides, not a pyramid where a select few stand on top of the masses.

Embrace your victory over the ego, which will allow you to truly belong.

Namaste

The Tribe

Published December 10, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Tribe, from The Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Tribe, from The Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Tribe, from The Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Essential Meaning Of The Card: “Community; belonging, being seen and understood by others; like-minded connections; a sense of family and friendship; knowing your place in the world.”

The Oracle’s Message: “This card signals a new affiliation with a group. Humans are social creatures, and we need to know we are useful to our tribes, families, and communities. In a tribe, everyone has an important function and feels “I matter.” Membership in the group provides a sense of belonging, of kinship, and of purpose that comes from working together for the greater fulfillment of all. Perhaps you are part of a spiritual community, or an artistic one. Perhaps you are in a learning community where you share your love education. Regardless of its form or focus, your community brings you joy. You will be inspired by it and want to contribute to it. Your contribution may be as small showing up or as large as becoming its leader. No matter your position in the tribe, your presence is needed.”

Relationship Message: “You are discovering the essential qualities that you share with another – and perhaps also those you do not share. There are times when you follow and the other person leads, and times when you lead and the other person follows. The appearance of this card points to the importance of learning the proper ‘dance’ between you and another. Accepting the truth that everyone has flaws is part of that dance. Yet you are also being asked to be aware of the dynamics that you do not want to repeat. You are in the perfect place to make changes in order to experience the best version of who you can be together.”

Prosperity Message: “Whenever you are in a community of like-minded others, there is a powerful opportunity to reap great abundance. It is essential to ask, “What can I contribute?’ rather than ‘What can I get from this?’ Figure out a need and look to fill it. Something meaningful will manifest. Even if what manifests is small, it is a sign that the doors of opportunity will swing open wider. There is also another meaning of this card to consider: Do not try to be all things to all people. Choose your role and be true to it, and serve from a sense of authenticity. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you have purpose.”

Protection Message: “Beware of compromising your integrity in order to belong. How do you dim your light or change yourself so others will accept you in the tribe? Do you hide who you really are in order to play a role within the larger whole? This will never fulfill you. Now is a time to assess your willingness to be real. Stand tall. Be you. Authenticity is true self-expression and the only way to empower yourself. Do not be afraid to be yourself and step into the role your heart tells you to take. Making yourself small bears too high a cost.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

We are social creatures. We need to belong, we need family, we need loved ones, we need our friends and our pets and our tribe. We need to be part of the community, and we need to contribute our gifts in order to feel accepted, loved, supported and fulfilled.

Yet we are in the middle of the technological age, which is a polarity between instant connection on a very surface level, and total isolation when we can get by without actually seeing anyone in the flesh or making strong connections. What a conundrum. Look at the online dating craze. People put a couple of pictures and a list of virtues and expectations. Then they weed through to see who they feel may be good enough to bother meeting with in person after days, weeks or sometimes months of texting. Where’s the chemistry there? In the texting banter or worse yet, the empty sexting? And what are the expectations? Did you know that they did a survey and that the number one fear for women when online dating is that they will meet someone violent and the mens is that they will meet someone who is heavier than their profile suggests? Wtf? Seriously.

We need connection. Real chemistry. Real laughter… not just LOL. Real emotions, not just emojis as cute as they are. We need to get back to building and participating in community. This will heal us. This will bring us together.

Many addictions and mental illnesses are thought to be caused by the lack of connection, neglect, abandonment and rejection. People who have grown up feeling that they are not good enough end up self medicating in order to numb the pain.

But what if there is really somewhere for everyone to fit in? What if the greatest gift we can give someone is the gift of acceptance and inclusion? No judgment, no rejection.

Your tribe awaits you. And you have the power to add someone to your tribe and change their life. Lets start an inclusive, kindness, acceptance revolution!

There is really nothing more powerful than a smile and a hug.

Namaste

Dee
