Remiel ~ Mercy:

“Truly, truly, I say unto you, you will see heaven opened,
and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
~ John 1:51

“Remiel means ‘the mercy of God.’ Mercy is justice tempered by wisdom, which grows out of knowledge and understanding. Divine mercy represents a technique of adjustment between perfection and imperfection, or fairness, and is one of the basic concepts of creation. Since God knows everything about each of us, it is easy for the Divine Spirit to forgive. ‘God’s mercy endures forever.’

Loving parents could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy from any of their children. We are directed to follow this example and ‘love our neighbor.’ The better we understand our neighbors, the easier it will be to forgive them and love them. We have been taught to fear and hate the differences between cultures and religions. This ignorance has caused persecution, wars and the extinction of many of Earth’s indigenous peoples. Deep in your emotional body is the guilt and rage for your part in this horror. You may have been a prosecutor in one life and a victim in another. The beliefs that resulted from these experiences are being replayed in your life now. Ask Remiel to open your eyes and heart to see how you are repeating your part, over and over again. As you watch the news of religious wars and ethnic ‘cleansing’ feel your rage and hurt over this behavior. When you see documentaries on the destruction of rain forests and the tribes whose homes and lives are being lost, allow your feelings of rage to surface. Look back at the mass slaughter involved with the Holocaust, the Cambodian Khmer Rouge and the American Indians. What are your feelings?

If you experience a sickness in the pit of your stomach, overwhelming grief and a feeling of disgust, that is the start of your healing. At first you may wonder how people can do those things or feel the terror of the victims. As you gain courage to accept the rage and its resulting viciousness within yourself, you will know that under certain circumstances, you could do those things. Have you been in a relationship that made you want to kill the person? Usually guilt overrides those impulses. Rather than accepting the feeling and using its power to effect a positive and creative change, it is usually denied and pushed away into dark and angry impotence.

Rage is the most frightening of all the emotions because it can make you want to do harm to those you love. How do you attempt to control your anger? Do you hold it in quietly? Do you run away? Are you afraid of losing control? Do you burst out in a temper tantrum? Have you hurt others before? Eat or starve yourself? Exercise? Blame others? Do you have illnesses related to unexpressed rage? Do you do crazy, impulsive things? Does guild hold you back?

When someone in  your life triggers feelings of rage, this is a blessing sent by Remiel and your Eternal Self. Begin with gratitude for being able to feel this trapped emotion. Call for God to guide you through the experience. If it converts to fear, accept and express these feelings also. Don’t let guilt stop your expression. At some point, the intensity will pass. If you are consumed with grief, accept those feelings too and cry your way through them. Eventually, you will just feel empty, tired and have a tremendous sense of relief. Call to Remiel and God to fill you with mercy, love and compassion. Open your mind and heart to new ways of resolving the conflict, then take action.

This rage is actually between you and God and has nothing to do with other people. Never hurt yourself or others impulsively. Rather, channel the intensity into a safe release session. Rage is a dangerous force. Any time you feel too much pressure in a situation, leave or stop. Bring the light into your places of darkness at a comfortable and safe rate. Never try to force yourself to heal too quickly.

God patiently waits for you to desire divine mercy and compassion. There is great joy in the heavens when you finally accept the comfort of Spirit. Remiel inspires the higher impulses and spiritual emotions. He guides the leaders of our communities and countries to incorporate fairness in their constitutions and rule. Merciless dictatorships eventually disappear and those who have made a place for forgiveness in their hearts shall assume leadership.”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

Rage as healing. Feeling down to the depths of your emotions in order to finally release them and set yourself free. Rage trapped in the body becomes disease; deep down we know this. We know that past hurt pain and trauma is trapped in our very tissues. Rage will clear it.

But rage is scary. It feels out of control. Crazy. We like to feel civilized, refined, together. We don’t like to lose control.

So how else can rage be acknowledged? How else can it be released from the body? How about drumming wildly? How about using your voice? Maybe writing a scathing letter, even if you burn it later. Maybe dancing around a fire… throwing something (not someone, even if you want to!!) in… something that represents that situation or person. Not like a voodoo doll, but a representation of sorts.

The rage needs to come from the inside out. In a way that feels right and authentic to who you are. To who you were before the rage happened. Like a controlled burn. It doesn’t need to get out of control, it just needs to vent. To be expelled once and for all.

Then the healing can really begin.

Are you ready Dear Warrior to deal with your rage?

Namaste

Mani

Published January 29, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mani, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Mani: “Time is precious. Be grateful for each passing minute. Using time well is a virtue. Be mindful of how you use your time – which may mean doing very little, if that is of benefit.”

“A circle
Within a circle,
The whirling wheel.
By nine times three,
I measure my life,
I gather my magic,
I shine my light,
Waiting for Fenrir
To open his jaws.”

“Mani” is both one name for the moon as well as the name of a god within the Norse cosmos closely connected with the moon. In the Poetic Edda, it was told that Mani was the brother of the goddess Sol (the sun) and was fathered by Mundilferi (time). It is unusual in any mythos for the moon to have a masculine association. With Mani, we may have the origins of the man in the moon. Both Sol and Mani were seen to circle the earth each day in a chariot.”

‘Mundilferi is he who begat the moon,
And fathered the flaming sun;
The round of heaven each day, they run,
To tell the time for men.’

“The Vikings told time by the moon, not the sun. The twenty-eight day moon cycle was a reliable timekeeper. Also, being seafarers, they were aware of connection between the cycles of the moon and the tides – especially around peak tides of the full moon. Incredibly competent navigators, they relied on the position of the moon, as well as the planets and stars to guide them on their voyages.

In the Eddic poem ‘Grimnismal’, when Thor asked the dwarf Alviss about the names for the moon on the other worlds, Alviss said Mani is called the ‘moon’ by mankind; ‘the whirling wheel’ within Hel; ‘fiery one’ by the gods, ‘the hastener’ by the giants; ‘the shiner’ by the dwarves; and ‘the counter of years’ by the elves. Mani, as a creation of the Aesir (gods) was consumed by the wolf Fenrir at Ragnarok (the end of the world cycle).

Within the Norse tradition, Mani is a keeper of time and cycles. When we receive this card, we are reminded that time waits for not one and that time is precious. To the Vikings, whose life expectancy was so much shorter than ours, to waste time was to waste life.”*

~By Stacey Demarco

Using time wisely is a valuable skill. We don’t realize until later in life that one of our most precious resources is time itself. We don’t realize how much we waste of it, and we don’t realize when we are wasting it how quickly it goes… never to be replaced in this lifetime.

Do you use your time wisely? Do you use it with mindfulness and focused intention? Do you allow for rest and recovery, nurturing of the body, mind and spirit? Do you value yourself and your time? Do you realize that the most valuable gift you can give your loved ones is quality time together?

Of course one of the most dangerous of time wasters these days is technology when not monitored. Social media, television, video games to name a few. Binge watching episode after episode of whatever catches your fancy. Escapism at it’s best. Comparing ourselves to others. Worrying that we may not measure up. Jealousy, envy, despair. Media, the news, the fear mongering. Politics… yikes worse than a horror movie these days.

Remember to unplug. Remember to be grateful for what you have. Remember not to get all caught up in other people’s lives. Or fantasy.

Get outside. Spend some time in silence every day; meditation or contemplation. Self heal. Cultivate self love. Reconnect to your loved ones.. eye to eye, heart to heart. Listening, laughing, removing the distractions for a time and just being. Intimacy. Fresh air. Exercise.

Live life organically, not vicariously.

Namaste

Dagaz

Published November 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dagaz, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dagaz, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Dagaz: “Know that you are protected. Only positive energy flows your way. Expressing daily gratitude will create profound change. Have hope! Happiness is within your grasp – the time for sorrow is over. Grief is necessary, but soon it will diminish. Seek balance in all things.”

“The darkness is complete,
Until it is not.
The black is no longer black,
But blue, and then
Purple, then streaked
With pink,
Orange, yellow, Gold.
Warmth, hope,
Happiness.
All is changed.
I am Dagaz.”

“Dagaz, (pronounced, ‘daa-gahz’) is a rune in the Elder Futark that says good things have arrived or are coming soon. It is the rune of the miracle of the dawn, the coming of the day, the first rays of sunlight after a frightening storm. It is the awakening of hope when it seemed that hope was gone. It is the first gentle happiness after a period of grieving, the understanding that we can choose pleasure after a period of sacrifice. It is the relief after much hard work.

Dagaz is a protective force too. It enhances happiness by warding off anything that may challenge that happy state. It is useful in dispelling depression, inducing hope and bringing forth a balanced mind and body. Dagaz was painted in yellow on the doorways of halls, where happy events were held, ensuring not only that good times would be had, but that the people within would be protected from harm wile enjoying themselves.”

As Challenger: “Insomnia or restless sleep. Depression. Hopelessness and victim mentality. Stuck in the old ways of thinking. Refusing to be grateful for simple things. Refusing to be happy because we fear something may go wrong.”

Element: “Fire”*

~By Stacey Demarco

Hmmm, I’m thinking I need this rune. I could paint it in yellow on my doorways. Yes, why not do that? I love the idea of a protective force, enhancing happiness and warding off what may challenge that happiness for me. I love the idea of awakening hope where once hope seemed beyond reach. I wan to choose pleasure after a period of stress, exhaustion and overwhelm. Bring it on.

It’s too easy to slide into victim mentality; to feel like life is happening ‘to’ us, that we have no say in it. To become unwilling participants in a game where the odds feel stacked against us. It’s easy to become a martyr, believing that we must sacrifice our dreams to create happiness for anyone and everyone in our lives despite ourselves.

We need to let that mentality go. And find a way to create something better. Stronger. More suited to the reality we desire to create.

What else is possible here?

There is no such thing as coincidence. Only synchronicity. There is no such thing as jinxing ourselves. It is safe to dream big and act on it. All those limiting belief systems just hold us back from what is ours, not the other way round. And yes, you deserve to be happy.

Expect a turn of events. Expect happiness. Intend it. Find it and hold onto it. Radiate it out into the world.

Namaste

Labyrinth ~ Spiritual Path

Published October 3, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Labyrinth ~ Spiritual Path, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Labyrinth ~ Spiritual Path, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Labyrinth ~ Spiritual Path, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Labyrinth ~ Spiritual Path: “The labyrinth is an ancient design found in most cultures; some examples date back more than four thousand years. Labyrinths have probably always been used as spiritual tools. A labyrinth has only one avenue. Its geometry combines the circle and spiral into a purposeful meandering path. The way in is the way out. There are no blind alleys. A profound tool for meditation, the labyrinth is a metaphor for your spiritual path. Also a feminist Christian icon, the labyrinth embodies inspiration heightened awareness and can serve as a psychological and spiritual tool for self exploration.

Approach this card as you might walk a physical labyrinth: From a passive, receptive mind set, allow activation of your intuition and inner knowing. As you view this card in relationship to your inquiry, open to any messages you may receive and feel how your emotions respond to these insights. Move from your outward point of inquiry to the place of inner knowing. Sit in your sacred center, giving thanks for the gifts you have received; and then move outward, where this guidance can become your truth.”*

~By Francene Hart

There is only one path available to you right now, and it will deliver you right into the heart. We love to skirt around things, avoid our problems and keep ourselves busy with drama and distractions. Yet this time, the message is clear, the path is one to be traveled alone, right to the center of your Soul. This may be in preparation; to meet the level of growth; to complete a stage of transformation; or to catch you up to where you need to be. Whatever the reason, the Labyrinth awaits you, and it must be faced before you can move on.

Know that the Labyrinth must be approached with reverence and sacred ceremony. It is to be navigated with curiosity; openness and receptivity. It cannot be rushed, it is a journey in and of itself. It must be undertaken with commitment; an agreement with self to enter and see it through. Yoga, meditation, contemplation, silence and the breath are all tools that can be used to guide you through. You may not find the center the very first time you try, but you must go back again and again until you do; fully devoted to finding the wisdom within.

Although you will undertake this journey alone, your angels and guides will always be by your side, and can provide valuable knowledge and encouragement along the way. They will lift you up when you are flagging; and they will cheer you on when you are heading the right way. They will answer you when you call, and give you clear signs and messages when you open your awareness to them.

See this time as a gift rather than a challenge, and know that when you reach the center of the labyrinth; you will find everything you seek.

The Universal Wisdom; hidden inside you all this time is yours.

You are, and you have, everything you need.

You just have to uncover it.

Find your true heart center.

Follow the path of the Labyrinth.

Namaste

Archangel Chamuel ~ Adoration

Published September 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Chamuel ~ Adoration, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Archangel Chamuel ~ Adoration, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Archangel Chamuel ~ Adoration:

“God alone suffices.”
~ Saint Theresa of Avila

“Chamuel, ‘He who seeks God,” anchors the power of adoration from Heaven where there is only a constant rhythm of praise for the gifts of life and loving companionship that are continuously available. You can bring Heaven to Earth by devoting every moment to adoration – day and night, waking and sleeping, working and praying. Invite the song of your every call to resound. Words alone will not generate this capacity; it must come from the depths of your soul. Initially, total adoration will occur only after an intense experience. However, you may cultivate this natural state by encouraging your true feelings. Do you suppress strong negative feelings, thinking that they aren’t spiritual? When you deny their existence, a part of you dies leaving a hard, dead place inside. The cells in that location cease to vibrate and can no longer sing praises.

Watch for opportunities to welcome all your feelings in a safe, personal and appropriate way. Give thanks for being able to feel and heal. Ask to be swept away in the rapture of adoration; Chamuel will respond! Relax into this loving freedom as if it were sunshine on a beautiful spring day, and absorb it into every cell of your being. Share it with others.

Jesus used the spiritual law of adoration to multiply the loaves and the fishes. Although fish may be a little out of your range, you can experience miracles through your feelings. When you are filled with Self-love and reverently give thanks, the love increases. Watch your loved ones light up when you adore them. Likewise, your body responds as you learn to relax within the embrace of loving adoration. Witness the lines in your own face softly being transformed.

To have instant access to Chamuel and increase your intensity of adoration, go to a place of worship where his angels are always in attendance. Most churches have a feeling of sanctity even when empty. These radiant ones carry your prayers to the Eternal and return with the response that frees you. The angels encourage more reverent thoughts, bringing you into a higher state of awareness and inspiration. Their quest is to leave a vision within your  heart that will guide you Home.

Be mindful to experience adoration during the day. Often, we simply forget to be thankful and loving because we are too busy! Dedicate one minute every hour, one day, or your lifetime to adoring God and watch how you will change!”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

This is a reminder to use the energy of deep Gratitude to heal and transform. There is always something to be grateful for; our health, our family’s health and safety, the chances we are offered and the opportunities we are given. Yes we have challenges, and it is up to us how we meet them, with struggle or with surrender. It is up to us to move forward through them and make something better, something more.

We always have the choice on how react to events in our lives. We can accept and move forward, asking for assistance, or we can freeze in fear and shut ourselves off. It’s always up to us. Trusting in our deep connection with the Universe, our angels and guides, our Higher Selves to show us the way. Embracing the change. Allowing and receiving. And then, meeting it with gratitude and adoration for the chance to experience in this lifetime, in this dimension, in this time.

Try meeting each day with adoration, with gratitude and with surrender and acceptance. Surrender isn’t compromise, it is faith and trust. Knowing that you will, somehow, be taken care of. Knowing that this is a chance to start new.

Open heart and open mind, we move forward fearlessly into the new.

And so it is

Namaste

Heaven Sent

Published August 24, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Heaven Sent, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autymn Skye Morrison

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Heaven Sent, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autymn Skye Morrison

Heaven Sent: “Just as we receive gifts in the physical world, through the thoughtfulness of others, to acknowledge how much we mean to them, so too we receive gifts on other levels – including the spiritual level.

A spiritual gift is something that happens through grace. We can ask for help and it may be given in response to that request. All requests for help are answered. A spiritual gift can also be given without us asking for anything at all – at least not consciously. Sometimes it is our hearts that cry out for help. While we are busy getting on with our to-do lists, we don’t often stop to think about what our hearts might need. If we do, and an immediate solution is not obvious, we just get on with life either letting the issue be or taking the more painful option of dwelling on it without seeing how it might be resolved.

However, there is a loving benevolence in life that knows exactly what we need and how it can best come to us, even when we are not quite so clear. This force actively seeks to assist us in walking our life path. That loving sweetness is being offered to you now, or soon will be, in the form of a spiritual gift.

Your spiritual gift may be symbolic. It may be something that seems ordinary but holds a lot of meaning to you. It might be an object that catches your eye and mesmerizes you. You might think you are appreciating how lovely it looks, but it is the underlying energy that captures you. Something in the appearance, colour or shape speaks to you and is, perhaps, answering an unspoken prayer. It is not the object that is the gift. That is just the wrapping. The actual gift is subtle, yet effective empowerment. It is like a spiritual booster shot that helps you move forward in life with additional zing, extra strength, and greater peace.

You will be empowered to accomplish tasks that you may have nearly, but not quite, been able to manage on your own through the bestowal of a spiritual gift.

The spiritual gift may or may not be recognizable to you. It may be very obvious – an offer, a windfall, a trip, a friendship, a new lover or a remarkable healing in a current relationship. It might be far more subtle and even more powerful such as a jolt of energy that allows you to perceive things differently all of a sudden and perhaps solve a problem that has been plaguing you. It will be bestowed as and when it is needed, in the form that will best serve the love in you.

This oracle also brings you the message: ‘Let yourself be helped.’ Assistance is coming your way so act on it and say yes. If you have also drawn the oracle of Collaborative Dreaming, then this message is amplified. It is very significant as the assistance is coming from the hand of life itself. Trust it.

This oracle also comes with the message that you are to trust in the things that you feel and say to others without knowing why. It moves them. You might not understand, but through trust you are allowing yourself not to over-think and censor yourself. As such you are able to become a vessel through which the spiritual gift can be passed on to others. Don’t block yourself. Let life happen through you. Only benefit can come from this.

If you have drawn any other card in addition at this one, it acts as a wild card and an amplifier. Whenever you draw the oracle of Heaven Sent in addition to another card the universe really wants your attention. It is saying, ‘Look, love is speaking to you directly here – so pay attention. Really feel the truth of what is being said and trust it! You are being helped!’

It is simple to receive the gift that is headed your way. The healing process below will activate that for you.”

Healing Process:
Say: ‘Through unconditional love, I now accept the spiritual gifts that are bestowed upon me, with complete trust and gratitude. So be it.’*

~ By Alana Fairchild

A blessing bestowed, what more can we ask for? How can it get any better than that? We ask and we receive. Maybe we feel that we have been asking and asking and nothing has changed. This is your sign. Things are about to change. Your gift is on it’s way to you now. It will be exactly what you need when you need it.

Sometimes gifts come in unmarked packages. Sometimes it takes us a bit to realize… to fully unwrap the blessing. Maybe it’s not exactly what we expected. Maybe we had other plans; we thought we could control how and when it would show up. This gift requires faith and trust. Trust that everything will somehow fall into place. Faith that the Universe will, as always, provide.

Our part is in the receiving. The appreciation. The gratitude. The opening up to something new.

It’s seeing that the gift is indeed Heaven Sent. Knowing that we are worthy. Acknowledging that this is perfect synchronicity and Divine timing.

Your gift is here, find it with all of your senses.

Namaste

Promise Of The Future

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Promise Of The Future, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Promise Of The Future: “Rest assured, something new is on the horizon.”

“All indications are favoring a time of new awareness. Seek new outlets for your creative expression. This heralds the beginning of a new phase in your life. Ganesha is asking that you take time to reflect on your desires and dreams. It is tie that you begin down the road of a new creative endeavour. Ask Ganesha to help you uncover the desires of your subconscious mind and then follow any creative nudges you feel. You may experience them as innovative sparks that come to you unexpectedly. This momentum will start you down a path that may involve a view of the world.

Reflect on your past endeavours. Take time to acknowledge and understand your lessons and your blessings. Feel gratitude for the path that has led you to this point in time. You are receiving the gift of freedom to choose what you will pursue.

There may also be an ending taking place. All of life has its cycles. Through experiences and choices you learn and grow. You are steadily progressing through the many phases of your life. With each ending comes the promise of a new dawn.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Tomorrow we step through the portal to a new month. New energies, new possibilities, new beginnings. Anything is possible.

See yourself as Lord Gansha, standing on the edge, the darkness behind, and the bright new future ahead. Feel the radiant light gentle pulling you forward through the portal; know that there is something really special on offer here.

The possibilities are truly endless.

There is deep soul love waiting for you, will you open your heart and accept it? There is connection beyond what you have previously experienced. It would have been out of your comfort zone, but now you are ready, you cannot imagine settling for anything less than honouring someone on a Soul level.

There is healing available, you will be the facilitator of this. A deep emotional healing and releasing of the old as you step through. Leave the old baggage behind, you won’t need it where you are going, it’s too heavy, too old.

There is a new opportunity, project, career, promotion or raise available. But you have to see it to grasp it. You have to jump on it and do it with conviction. There’s no time to sit on the fence and ponder, just get in there and get into it! Do it with your heart and soul and you cannot go wrong. Trust.

When we walk through the portal of August, we are entering a powerful time. How it plays out will be up to you. Take the path in the direction that your heart leads you and open a whole new chapter of your life.

Namaste

Dee
