Alchemy: “The path you are on is about to go through a very powerful transformation. Nothing is how it seems.”

“You have an opportunity to take a big leap in your level of consciousness. It is extremely important that you focus on letting go of any negativity and beliefs that no longer serve you.

You have access to the energy of alchemy, which can transform the most challenging experiences into incredible gifts and miracles.

Meditate and take action on your highest goals and dreams. They are on their way to coming true.

Let go of your expectations. What is about to appear can surpass anything you have dreamed of. The most important part is that you are prepared, and ready to receive.

The energy around you is very potent at the moment so make sure that you are using this time as productively as possible.

Give yourself time for prayer, gratitude and celebration.”

Action: “Rub your hands together vigorously for 40 seconds, then place your hands a few centimeters apart. Visualize a golden ball of light. Focus your intention on what you would like to create and place this intention into the golden light. Then move your hands towards your heart. Feel your heart expand and grow full. Ask your Higher Self to guide you towards your deepest expansion and evolution.”*

~ By Inna Segal

Alchemy is the magical process of turning lead into gold. Fear into love. Pain and trauma into forgiveness and growth. The mundane into the magical. It is a valuable skill, and it is abundantly yours to master. Everything is changeable and everything is in the process of deep transformation. Everything is shifting, progressing, expanding and elevating. We are moving out of the old and into the new.

What can you change in your life right now, by looking at your past experience and making a different choice? How can you see yourself differently, completely transform your belief system around what is possible for you?

Tonight is the new moon, the perfect time for planting seeds, visualizing and declaring clear intention. The new moon is your blank canvas, your chance to paint a different picture of your life and patiently coax it into reality. It is a time to foster big ideas and take a few chances. It is a time to know that you can manifest your dreams with absolute certainty. A time for the very early stages of new love. A new business idea. A new collaboration.

If ever you have had the chance to be powerful, to choose your right path, to create your highest potential. Hold the energy of that time in your mind’s eye and know that this time is even more powerful.

Use it wisely. Don’t hold back.

For the Highest Good Of All and So It Is

Namaste

Ull

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ull, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Ull: “Focus”

“Clear mindedness and a focused intent are necessary for success right now. You need stamina for long-term projects.”

“In the blanket of white that is the snowfield, a figure with a bow waits. He is camouflaged against his enemies. He is the picture of stillness, hardly moving, but when he does, it is with deliberate grace and absolute surety.

The sure, clear-eyed gaze runs along the straightness of the arrow. The arrow’s tip dully glows against the flush of the fingers holding it steady. Without ado, with complete ease, the figure releases the bowstring, and there is a hiss of energy and then the dull thump of the arrow impacting deep into its target. Then and only then does the bowman breathe out. Only then does he move to become more leather clad deity than snowman. As he rises to his full height, we see Ull, Norse god of marksman.

Ull is a very old deity associated with Germanic and Scandinavian people. Being a great marksman could mean the difference between eating and an empty belly, or between killing and dying, so Ull is an important god to have on your side.

Should you be going out to hunt something (think beyond hunting animals), to trap an idea, to chase a goal, or to travel in harsh environments (whether that means physical snowfields or emotional minefields), you would call upon Ull for the focus required for success. It is Ull who invented skiing and snowshoeing, and ancient artwork depicts him with sleds and skis.

Today Ull is a popular god of skiing. Some modern Nordic Olympians wear symbols of Ull on their clothes and equipment. It is certainly worth saying a few prayers to him next time you wish to tackle a harder than usual ski run!

Call on Ull when you need more focus and clarity in your life. No matter how harsh the terrain, literal or emotional, Ull can get you through to where you wish to be. He can lend you the stamina you need to complete a task when there are distractions, obstacles, or haters all around you. He is the essence of calm centeredness and will help you to achieve what you wish to achiever with a minimum of fuss.”

Shadow Side: “Focus is generally a good thing; however, if we focus on one thing and one thing only, to the exclusion of all else, this can be an issue in the long-term. We all know people who focus wholly on school and forget they have friends or other commitments – this is the shadow side of being focused. Focus is important, but so is balance.”

Symbols: “Bow and arrow, skiing, sleds”

Invocation: “Find or fashion an arrowhead. Hold it in your hand and say:

No matter what I chase,
No matter what I do,
Clear flight to my arrow
May it hit my true target!
Ull, I need your assistance with (state what you need to focus on)
Be with me on my journey; show me how to hit my mark!”

I love doing an invocation to Ull when I am in the snow. Try this blessing before you head out for a day on the slopes.
Place your skis or snowboard upright in the snow. Make a snowball or two. Stand back at least five paces and throw your snowballs at your skis. When the snow hits the target say:

“Blessings from Ull. I hit my target true.
Bless my skis/snowboard through and through.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

We are reminded here of the importance of clarity and focus. Of getting really clear on what it is that we wish to create, and putting the necessary energies into it. Laser focus. Conviction that the goal is possible. No distractions. No one to take away our power. Absolute commitment to the end result.

What are you creating? Where is  your focus? Are you taking responsibility for your life or are you blaming others for your predicaments?

How can you get crystal clear on what you are manifesting? A dream board? A list? An altar? How can you bring to your conscious mind where your energy is going, and correct what must be corrected in order to master your ability to mold your life into what you desire?

How can you be of service? What can you do in order to give back? How can you incorporate more healing, expansion, awareness and love into your life now?

This is a card of victory, of goals achieved and success attained. It is a message of possibility, of belief in the self and what is possible. Will you follow the guidance? Will you find your clarity, vision and focus? Will you commit to something new and put in the necessary effort to see it through?

Namaste

Desires

Published January 3, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Desires, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Desires, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Desires: “Goals, Passion, Craving, Fulfillment”

“Journey beneath your surface wants into the depths of your soul’s true desire. There are no limits to what you can achieve.”

Card Story: “From the depths of a crystal spring, a beautiful water spirit beckons. Her silent, open armed invitation calls us to journey past the surface… to go beyond the known, into the mystery within. Gold fish encircle her with a promise of good fortune for those who are willing to move past the surface currents of wants and fears, in order to swim amidst the depths of their soul’s true desire.”

Card Message: “The small desires and simple pleasures in life can be satisfying on some levels. But this card is about accessing your deepest desires. The core inspiration of your spirit… why you are truly here. Your soul is urging you to journey to the center of your being and answer its call.

Sometimes our deep desires are those we have carried with us since childhood in different forms. Sometimes they are discovered along the way. Have you always wanted to be an artist or a teacher, to build your own house, become a monk, travel the world, open a B&B or become a musician?

What makes you passionate in life? What makes  you excited? What makes you laugh? Think of a time when you were truly happy, content or excited and inspired to live more fully. What elements came together to fulfill your soul’s desire then?

The truth is that we almost always get what we ask for… We just don’t always ask for what we truly, deeply want. It is time to find what really makes you happy and joyous. Not just what others expect of you, or what you have been conditioned to think will fulfill you, but what you really truly want. Look at what is currently in your life. See this as an expression of what you have asked for in the past. Is it making you happy or just feeding superficial gratification?

It is time to walk in the direction of your true desire! If you could do, be or create anything in this lifetime, what would it be? You don’t have to see the whole pathway. Just take the first step in faith and the next will reveal itself. Absolutely anything is achievable if your heart is the driving force!”

~ By Caryn Sangster

What you desire desires you, have you heard that before? Right now it is true, as you have focused your intention, wished and dreamed your desires into reality. They are reaching out to you, are you reaching out also?

Or are you still fearful? Still stuck in the old programs, worried that old patterns may repeat themselves and you are better off hiding in your shell? Are you getting in your own way? Or are you trusting, surrendering, going with what feels right?

Maybe it is your heart that is still tender after so much pain. Maybe you have been rejected too many times… or just one time but it still hurts. Maybe you thought you were capable of something and someone refused you the chance to prove yourself. Or maybe an opportunity passed you by, seemingly snatched up by someone else. Maybe your self-worth has taken a hit.

Let all that go now.

There is something here for you. If you will receive it.

Maybe it doesn’t look exactly like your idealist ego mind would have it. Maybe you expected more bells and whistles. Maybe you were expecting the latest model, like literally. Or maybe it requires you giving up your security blanket and trying something way out of your comfort zone.

Again this is a window of opportunity and it is up to you to take the reins. Take the leap. Have the faith. Trust in the process.

Focus on joy, on happiness and on creating something new. And let the Universe deliver.

Namaste

The Horse King

Published July 5, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Horse King, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Horse King, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

The Horse King as Ally: “The Horse King always comes to lend you the power to go the distance, forging ahead whatever the weather. You will most certainly reach your perfect destination with this noble Ally. He lets you know that some person or circumstance brought through synchronicity will certainly appear to help you with your endeavours. You are not meant to go this part of the journey alone.

This is also an important time to delegate authority to others that they may assist you. Currently you are magnetic to powerful people who are in a position to help you make your dreams come true. The Horse King asks that you remain open to those who are sent to aid you. You can be assured that you will be lifted up and will ride high in victory.”

The Horse King as Challenger: “The Horse King wants to know why you think you can do everything all by yourself. Keeping control of everything around you is counterproductive and exhausting. You may lose an important opportunity if you insist on being stubborn. The Horse King is patient, however, and will wait for you to come to your senses and accept the help you need. You will not be able to reach your goal otherwise.

Yet The Horse King says that all it takes is a decision to jump on his back, ask for the help you need, and graciously allow yourself to be carried to your destination. Let go of control and amazing things can happen for you.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself right? Believe me, as single parent and entrepreneur I totally get this! Sometimes it’s easier to just get it done than spend the time debating who is going to do it and why they have to do it… it’s exhausting. Yet there is only so much I can accomplish in a day, and I will admit it, sometimes it’s more than I even thought I could pull off! And I must mention I do feel very blessed to have the support and assistance of my parents, which I realize that many do not have.

So this card is a gentle reminder that it’s time to allow ourselves to receive some help. Phew, what a nice concept! Assistance, yes please.

Sometimes you can receive assistance by not doing what you don’t want to do. Removing yourself from obligations and responsibilities that make you feel resentful and angry is the ultimate freedom. Of course we can’t get out of everything, but there are always one or two things that just really rub us the wrong way but we don’t speak up and do something about them. Take this first step and learn to say “no thank you!” to anything that makes your blood boil. Who needs that kind of stress anyhow! Hanging out with toxic people? Who needs that, no time and energy for that. In a damaging relationship? Good bye, thank you for the lesson. Over worked, under paid and super stressed? How can you streamline your life?

If you cannot imagine how help could possibly come your way, ask for assistance from you team of guides who are always willing to assist you. Ask that the right people be sent your way. Ask that the tasks that you just can’t complete will be taken on by someone who will do them joyfully… or at least do them sometimes so that you don’t always have to!

Surrender the need to control, to micro manage. Trust that things can get done without your hands always having to do them. Yes, it is possible.

Namaste

Compass

Published April 1, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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

Goals

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals: “Dedication, Process”

“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life”
~ Greg Anderson

“In a larger metaphysical sense, our journey through life is said to be full of transformation from an imperfect, corruptible state towards a perfect, healthy and everlasting state. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Thus painful or difficult changes that we endure can in theory burnish us in a spiritual sense to a high, golden shine. We can also seek out knowledge, opportunity and challenge; it is not necessary to merely allow life to happen to us.

In this scene, an Alchemist serves as an analogy for striving to achieve an end goal through study, experimentation, dedication and perseverance. His facial markings trace the beginning and end points of his quest from base lead through its various stages of purification of the soul to gold. The symbol for gold appears in the center of his forehead, where the Third Eye chakra is perceived to be.

This card is a reminder to stay focused on the goal and to continually apply the required self-discipline. It will all be worth it in the end.”*

 ~ By Ciro Marchetti

Be mindful that there may be people or situations around you at this time that trigger you. They may trigger sadness, pain or fear; they may trigger worry or self-doubt. These are all coming up for a reason, they are little hurdles along your journey; challenges that you must learn to turn from lead to gold in order to move forward. When you are feeling triggered, suddenly stressed or frustrated or angry or sad, instead of stuffing it and putting on a mask, look at the situation with detachment and compassion. What did the person do or say to trigger you? Why are you allowing yourself to feel triggered by this? What other reactions are possible at this time? What lesson was learned from the past experience that holds the power to trigger you? How do you release yourself once and for all from the ties that have bound you to this lesson? Once you gain clarity you can find a way to bless, release and move forward.

This is a great time for journaling, getting it all out on paper can give you perspective and is a much more powerful tool than seeking advice or complaining to friends or loved ones. When we write it all out, we force ourselves to see the problem from all angles, and then we are also called to use our own deep wisdom to solve it. When we allow ourselves the time and space to do this, we can listen to our own heart’s to guide us, rather than being guided by someone else. We take control, and we heal ourselves.

Do not let yourself get off course, this is only a speed bump, and you are being challenged for a reason. When you solve this, and truly learn to let it go, you will never be triggered by it again. This is one step closer to your manifestation.

Stay the course on your quest, Spiritual Warrior.

Become the Alchemist.

Namaste

Ace Of Earth

Published January 1, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
 Ace Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Ace Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ace Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Ace Of Earth: “New Beginnings, Goals, Motivation, Desire, Preparations, Opportunity, Education, Security, Potential Reward, Potential Consequences”

Key Phrases: “Practicality and Pragmatism, Starting Anew, New Financial or Career Opportunity, Reward vs Consequence, Making Preparations, Planning for the Future, Material Gain, A Desire for Security”

Meaning: “When the Ace Of Earth appears in your reading, it represents a time of change and new beginnings on the career and home front. This change is driven by a desire for financial security and independence for yourself, or for those for whom you are responsible.

It is a time to make preparations and plans for the future so that you are not challenged or placed under stress by the changes that are coming. What do you want to do with your life? What career path will allow you to to both meet your responsibilities and be fulfilled. Are you more interested in financial reward than seeking a vocation or career that will stimulate you and make you happy?

It is time for you to think of the outcome you desire. Do you need to further your education and qualification to create more financially rewarding opportunities?

A new beginning founded in practicality and pragmatism – this is the energy of the Ace Of Earth. It is time to be grounded in your approach and seek tangible outcomes that meet your desires. Determine your weaknesses and strengths, weigh your responsibilities, and then decide whether or not they fit with your goals and objectives. Also, be sure to consider the impact your decision will have on those around you. Be certain of your motivation.

If you desire a safe and secure environment that is free of financial stress, then now is the time to consider building a solid foundation.”

Potential Blockage, When This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “The Ace Of Earth signifies that too much emphasis may have been placed on financial reward or career goals, to the detriment of other needs and responsibilities. What price are you willing to pay in order to meet your goals? Are you motivated by genuine need? By fear? Or by material desires? These are questions you need to ask yourself, now. How important is material gain? How fast do you wish to achieve financial security? And for what purpose?

The Earth cards represent home, family, and career, and a harmonious marriage of the three. While your life may not include all three, be sure that your opportunity to have love and family will not be limited by a path that focuses only on your need for financial security.

If you do have family – a spouse, children, or both – are you putting your desire for financial security before the emotional needs and responsibilities of a partner and parent? Will the plans you have made take you away from family and place undue pressures on your relationships with others? If the answer is “yes” or “maybe” the Ace Of Earth as challenger suggests that it is time to rethink your goals, or weight the potential rewards against the potential consequences.

Do not act selfishly at this time, or the consequences may be greater than anticipated.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

We are responsible for our own realities. If we don’t like what we see around us, it is up to us and only us to change it. How does that statement make you feel? Empowered? Or angry, petulant and a little scared? Do you feel the victim of circumstance? Or do you feel like you are a powerful manifestor? Whatever  you answer, you are correct. If you are not sure, the evidence surrounds you in every aspect of your life.

Today is the start of a brand new chapter, a clean slate. Now, finally, you can take full control and make some serious changes in your life. Transformation is NOW. Yes, there may be a final release. Yes, there may be some turmoil, but you knew that. All the gentle poking and prodding and whispering and guiding… were you listening? If not, expect a kick in the butt from the Universe pretty quick… you must get back on your path. Remember? You came here for a very important reason. There is no more time to lose.

Your thoughts, feelings, intentions and personal power will create your new reality. What will that look like?

Did you make a vision board? Start a God Box? Create a collage of dreams? Journal? Make an alter? Set a powerful intention in a way that resonates with you?

Do whatever it is that you have to do to get really clear on what it is that you desire to create.

Then get out there and create it.

Happy 2017, it’s going to be just as awesome as you make it!

Namaste

Dee
