Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gratitude, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Gratitude: “Appreciation ~ Thankfulness”

“The golden spiral within a circle here symbolizes offering prayers of appreciation and gratitude for all of life’s gifts. Spirals represent the purest form of moving energy; therefore, they are a perfect means of expression for sending into consciousness your prayers of gratitude. The priestess figure sits at sunset consciously acknowledging and giving thanks for the glorious beauty all around.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Appreciation brings greater understanding and awareness of the miracles that occur all around us every day. Looking through grateful eyes increases our ability to see beyond ourselves and enjoy life more completely.

Choosing this card brings a message of appreciation from the cosmos to your very own heart. Give thanks for your amazing heart, which moves energy through your body so that you may live in the physical world. Give thanks as you open your heart and develop the intelligence that resides there.

Living with gratitude is part of your sacred path. Appreciation of your own divine nature and that of everything around you will assist you to experience expanded awareness and appreciation for All That Is.

Gratitude is such a simple thing and yet one of the most powerful energies we can engage. Start each day in gratitude and appreciation and see how your world expands. As you move through your day, take moments here and there to connect with your appreciation for the abundance and love that fills your life. Notice how much more beautiful the world appears as you offer yourself the gift of gratitude.

If this card comes to you as challenger: You have slipped into apathy. Look around and rekindle your appreciation for things large and small.”*

Thank you. Yes, you! For reading this. I so appreciate it, really I do. I have my moments, believe me. I used to worry I wouldn’t know what to write. Sometimes I feel like I just don’t have time for one more thing in my life. And each time I think one of these silly things… a wonderful thing happens. I get a message, or a comment from someone telling me that it helped them. That they heard what they needed to hear. That the messages somehow helped them through a tough time or gave them some insight. And I step back and I let the Angels do their work. Cuz it’s not me, I’m just grateful to be a part of it…

So recently everything I own, well, let’s not play with the Universe just in case… we won’t say everything, we will be specific… my car, my computer, my TV (which honestly I could care less about and probably will not replace) my fridge, the hot water tank and my blender all broke in the last couple of weeks. Seriously. The car was a big one, the transmission blew. Ya, yikes. I am forever grateful to my parents who helped bail me out of that one. The computer too but I’m going to pay it monthly. The blender was a silly one, slipped from my hands and smashed everywhere, the glass part. Not a big deal but the last straw at that moment in time. Lastly, two days ago, my fridge threw in the towel and I discovered the hot water tank was leaking. Sigh… all part of the process right?? So, here I am, also grateful for a new fridge that hasn’t yet arrived and that we get to pretend we are camping by living out of a giant cooler. And the new hot water tank that will provide us with hot baths and showers…(Let’s just throw it out there to the Universe while we are at it that I am also very grateful that I am about to win the lottery to pay for all this stuff!!)

All this on the heals of the worst break of my life so far. My marriage. A family torn apart. Another statistic. But you know what? I’m grateful for that too. I finally get myself back. Starting right now. I get to create and manifest freely. Is it easy? Well to be totally honest, not so far, but I’m trying to work that into my manifestation and it’s getting better, I know it is. Effortless manifestation. Grace and Ease. I believe I will have another chance at love. No games. No manipulation. No cheating. No lies. I’m not settling for anything less than True Love. Co-creation. Sacred Union. Radical honesty and authenticity. Unconditional Love is possible, I have Faith. And for now, I strive to find these qualities within myself and strengthen my connection to the Divine as I heal and become stronger than I have ever been. I also work to love and accept myself unconditionally and affirm that I am worthy of this kind of big love.

To be clear, I am not sharing any of this for sympathy, only to give you a glimpse into my life as I don’t usually write much personally and when it comes to gratitude, that is about as personal as it gets right? Maybe because of all the turmoil I somehow magnetized stuff breaking down into my reality. Maybe I have been subconsciously holding on to the fears that go with being a single Mom and have brought this forward to prove to me that I’m still standing, it’s just material stuff, no big deal. Or, maybe it was time for some things to complete a cycle and move on. Ok Universe, I got it, completion, moving forward, transformation, change, letting go… now can we stop breaking stuff! Geesh! And to think Mercury Retrograde is just beginning! But, alas, maybe it was just to stir things up and make me look at everything differently, from a gratitude perspective. It made me realize that as long as we are healthy and safe and surrounded by love, we are winning, no matter what. When material things are being taken away, I do believe that, although it can be challenging, it’s always good to focus on what you do have and how grateful you are for having it. My kids will always come first.

Moving on to the most important part of my life: I’m grateful for my kids. They are my whole world, really. Two amazing beings that picked me to be their (sometimes frazzled, overwhelmed and frustrated… working on it!….  striving to be eternally patient, but always loving and completely devoted) Mother. Wow, how did I get so lucky.

I’m grateful for my family. We are healthy. We love and support each other. We talk. We get along. I am grateful for that.

I have awesome friends. I am grateful for each and every one of you. Yes, you! Love you!

I have a small hair salon, which is not only my bread and butter, but often my social life! I am so thankful I have this and can work around my kids. I am also so happy that I have my jewelry and my readings and my blog. Full of gratitude.

I’m also grateful for yoga, which has pretty much kept me sane for the last few years and particularly the last few months. I love the studio I go to (Found City shout out) the community and the awesome instructors. And I am so grateful for the opportunity to showcase and sell my crystal healing bracelets, what an excellent opportunity, thank you Owl!

I am so thankful for my lovely apartment that is now painted my favourite colours and looks exactly how I’ve always wanted it to look. (good manifesting!)

I’m grateful for my little black and white dog. A little ball of happiness and love; with tons of personality and a bit of an attitude.

I’m grateful that I have been able over the last couple of years to improve myself by taking my Reiki Masters, Sound Healing, Herbal Apprenticeship Program and Yoga Teacher Training… my toolbag is getting bigger! And I intend to keep adding more tools! And more like minded people to share them with. Community is everything and I feel honoured to be a part of such an amazing one here.

I’m grateful for our Great Mother, Gaia and her abundance of miraculous creations. Every tree, flower, animal and body of water. May we figure out how to repay her for tirelessly providing her bounty. The air, the water, the fire, the ether. The sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, our solar system, the cosmos. Thank you for allowing me to witness and be a part of these miracles. A part of All That Is.

I’m forever grateful to my Angels and Guides, the Ascended Masters, Archangels, Fae, Elementals and Beings of Light who have been working with me and continue to strengthen the connection to the Divine.

Thank you, thank you, thank you…

What are You grateful for? Feel free to share on my Facebook page.  I would love to hear about it!

Love, Light and infinite Blessings,

Solar Deity

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Solar Deity, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alyssa Bartha

Solar Deity: “Solar Deity, our sun, is a conscious being. It is the center of our galactic family of celestial beings in what we call our solar system. Around it, we all gravitate to its life-bearing energy, its physical light and warmth, and its infinite radiance. This  is our star, up close and comfortable, in galactic measure.

Throughout distinct eras in human history, the sun was worshipped as a living deity. Once again, with so many Starseed born into these times of the great shift, we are connecting the puzzle pieces anew. We are remembering that all celesital beings are conscious beings. They are gods in their own way, grand and unfathomably powerful – as gods should be! The ancient Greeks knew the sun as the god Apollo, whose white-winged steed flew his chariot across the sky. To the Egyptians it was Ra who traveled in his solar boat through the desert night.

All creation myth holds the commemoration of morning – the return of the sun – and that primordial celebration still lives within us all. Without the sun, all is barren, cold and lifeless.

Sun gods of ancient civilizations were attributed with powers of prophecy. They reigned over music and the arts. They healed plagues and were associated with all things positive, beautiful, and light. Hence, it is the most radiant and positive key in the entire Tarot theater and drawing it is the most positive energy.

The sun wears its coronal ejections as a crown. It is the explosive, hot, and powerful, beautifully majestic and self-aware. Overlaid upon its fiery body is the imprint of the sacred geometry found in the sunflower – sheer perfection of godly design and cosmometric proportion.

When this key appears to a querent, it is a hallmark of great things in the works. The light of Ra shines down upon the seeker. Bask in it and celebrate the light of the universe. Enlightenment is unfolding, and all that Starseed has encountered and learned, from projections of the self to obstacles on the path, lie behind. It is a gloriously beautiful new day.

Questions are few with this amazing key. Am I ready to honor the true light of my soul? Do I recognize the beauty of my being? How can I be a lighthouse for others, to share in the bliss of being so connected to Source? What wonderful thing is unfolding before my very eyes? Do I appreciate all that is given?”*

Nothing can hold you back now; except the old illusions… if you allow them to. You are exactly where you should be, everything is in perfect divine order. Do you allow that? Are you comfortable in taking full responsibility for your life, from this very moment forward? Stepping into the full knowledge that you are a powerful manifestor and possess everything you need in order to create the reality you desire? Do you claim your birthright of 5th dimensional being? Do you open yourself to infinite possibility? Do you surrender to the Divine within you?

You are a portal of Light on this planet. You came here to help her ascend and to ascend with her; hearts open wide.

Are you awake? Are you still slumbering, hoping that someone or something will come along and save you, heal you and keep you protected from the illusion of separation which exists only in the  3D world?

It’s time to wake up and step into your power. It’s time to step out into the Sun. It’s time to show the world what you have to offer.

You, Dear One, are the Sun.

Affirmation: I AM awake

Namaste

Antheling

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Antheling, from the Faery Forest Oracle Card deck, by Lucy Cavendish, Artwork by Maxine Gadd

Antheling: “Nobility, Grace, Gratitude”

“Heavy is the head who wears the crown… but within every moment, within all responsibilities and circumstances, lies the opportunity to be noble, to be grace full, to be grateful. And this is Antheling – a wise being who is able to listen to the pleas and the requests and the demands and to respond without pressure or frustration or tension. She is able to distill the clamour about her into calm, and focus on one simple deed at a time. She is not one to sacrifice herself, nor will she allow herself to be influenced and dominated. Nor is she overwhelmed, despite the vast nature of her realm and her responsibilities. She wears her duties lightly, just as she does this crown.

And this is your message – find a way to slow down the demands of your life, create boundaries, cease feeling so obligated to sacrifice your needs to the needs of others who are simply noisier and more carefully move forward, focusing on one thing at a time, giving each task your absolute attention. Now is the time for you to be as gracious when you say no as when you give your agreement; to never be cruel, or snap and condemn simply because it would be easier to do so. Antheling reminds us that even when under pressure, with duty and status come great responsibility, and we must remember our blessings in order to develop our own contentment. We must extend patience and endow others with dignity, be kind – and be grateful that we have the opportunities that we have to change the world for the better every day.”

~ By Lucy Cavendish

This card is about power and balance; about finding your voice; following your path; and trusting in your own creation process. It is time to take a break from those who would issue advice, heeded or otherwise. Although they may have your highest good in mind, they are not you, and only you know what you truly wish to create. When you involve others in your choices, you are guided by their own experiences; their past fears, hurts, judgments and failures will be projected upon you, just as their victories and triumphs will be. Yet, again, you are not them. This is not that situation from their past. This is different, this is you. The outcome is yet to be determined, there is nothing to compare this to. It’s a new chapter, a new direction.

Gently step away and take some time for yourself. Find your center. Find your silent voice. Listen to your Soul speak to you in the whispers from your heart.

What do you want? What do you desire to create? Where will you focus your intention? What do you truly believe is possible?

Remember that you have the support you need to guide you on this path. Your angels, guides, ancestors and Antheling are always by your side; unite with them filled with gratitude.

Move forward fearlessly and follow your heart.

And so it is

Namaste

Blessed

Blessed, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Blessed, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Blessed ~ Essential Meanings: “Something wonderful that is unearned and unexpected; grace that is an unforeseen gift from Spirit.”

The Oracle’s message: “There are moments in life when, out of the blue, it seems that everything has been orchestrated by Divine intervention. You feel blessed in ways that are difficult to express. It is as if the Red Sea parts in front of you and events come together to banish your troubles easily and naturally. You know deep down you did not deserve any of it, and yet here you are. This is one of those times. Let awe and gratitude for all your blessings guide you now.”

Relationship message: “You are moving towards a deepening of intimacy in a unique and sacred partnership. You know that you are meant to make this connection. This union, blessed by the Divine, will bring transformation and beauty to the world. This is also a sign that, even more important, you are being called to a deeper intimacy with yourself and Spirit. With this new development, you will see evidence of grace in your life.”

Prosperity Message: “Unexpected windfalls and good fortune come your way now. You are in a phase where any difficulties or obstacles that have stymied your success seem to disappear on their own. Be ready to receive. The windows of opportunity will open wide. Accept the blessings given to you now, and do not forget to share them.

Protection Message: “Humility is called for now, as grace is an unearned gift. You did not gain this by your own desires or actions. To be who you need to be, you can no longer do what you did. In a way, you have hit rock bottom and what is required now is nothing less than total surrender. Then you will be blessed.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This is a message of Faith and Trust. Knowing that the Universe has your back, even if you have been slightly off course lately. You may feel overwhelmed, you may be a little (or quite) stressed. You may feel bogged down by responsibilities and obligations when you just really want to fly far away and be free. Maybe despite all the positive energies coming through you still feel stuck, or are having trouble releasing that which no longer serves you. Maybe you are still holding on to why you think you cannot move forward, or don’t deserve to.

Despite all that, something amazing is coming your way! Yey to that! Blessings are on their way to your right now, despite whatever may be going on around you. This is confirmation of the deep love and support that the Universe has for you. And who doesn’t love an unexpected gift!

Receptivity is key here and to be in the receptive state, use gratitude. Just keep putting it out there how thankful you are for all that you have and all that you Love. Just how lucky you are to be here, right now, reading this, existing in this crazy, amazing, magical world. During the shift of ages, into new and undiscovered realms.

The beginning of your very own faery tale…

Namaste

Happy, Happy

Happy, Happy, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Happy, Happy, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Happy, Happy, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Happy, Happy ~ Essential Meaning: “Joy and contentment; a sense of fulfillment; a feeling that all is well”

The Oracle’s Message: “Your desires are effortlessly fulfilled now. Find joy in the present moment, whatever is happening, and be satisfied with things as they are. You are free from the shackles of longing and able to experience the liberation that comes from actually being happy moment to moment, for you have chosen happiness over yearning for it. Now is the time for feeling joy for the sake of joy, and experiencing contentment. Nome of this is because of something outside yourself. Your happiness is a result of your being at one with Spirit’s plan for your life. All is well. The tide is in for now. Enjoy playfully splashing in it.”

Relationship Message: “There are moments in a relationship when you just feel good about whom you are with and you know that your heart is wide open… to befriend, to love, and to care for another, without wanting anything in return. This is the kind of “happy” that you just want to share. The appearance of this card in a reading tells you that joy and contentment are here now, not somewhere else or off in the future. The grass is greenest right where you stand. Be grateful and delight in your relationship; and if you are seeking one, be happy now – happiness attracts more of itself, like bees to honey.”

Prosperity Message: “This is a time to take pride in your accomplishments. You are doing good work, providing exceptional service and are well compensated for it. The world rains gratitude upon you, and you are happy with the results of your efforts and creativity. Is it not amazing to consider all that you have done? Remember your partnership with Spirit in this moment, too. Your Soul has always known you could accomplish anything if it brought you joy.”

Protection Message: “Lighten up, because this is the time to be ridiculous and silly. See the world through the eyes of a clown, and do not take yourself or any situation right now too seriously. Have fun, but playful, and make laughter the order of the day. You will be surprised by how everything just seems to fall into place when humor leads the way. Being happy and lighthearted is a wonderful icebreaker. Life is meant for play as well as work, for laughter as well as tears, for celebration as well as focus. Spirit wants to sparkle through you today. Smile and enjoy each breath and each moment. Miracles lie in the silly things today.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Let go of your old expectations. Release the idea that happiness hinges on getting what you want. Know that by allowing joy into your life, what you think you want will actually morph and change, and it will become so much easier to attract more joy and Lightness of Being into your life. The struggle is over. Release it. Let it all go…

What you think will make you happy is only a barrier to true happiness. If you are waiting for that other person to come along and make you happy, know that this is a pattern that ego has put into place. Release that knight in shining armour idea, right now, and embrace all that you have to offer to the world. Know that once you can experience yourself with full acceptance and Unconditional Love, you will attract Love that you have never experienced. Free love, no boundaries, no expectations, no saving or being saved. Just Love. Release the idea that you need to look a certain way, own something particular, or learn to do something better. That’s all old school. Let it go.

Dig down deep and find your joy. Have you let the pilot light go out and you have been waiting for someone else to come and ignite it? Only you can encourage this flame to burn again. Tend to it. Breathe it back into life gently, consistently. Fan the flames until it burns brightly from within.

This is the key to complete transformation. Let go of what others are doing, thinking, saying, owning, judging, looking like. Send them love and move forward on your own Divine Path. What is yours will come to you. No one can take it away. There is no such thing as competition, it is only an illusion of the ego. Let it go.

Be You. Beautifully, happily, perfectly You. Embrace all that is You. Be your own masterpiece.

You Are the magic.

Namaste

You go!

Elephant

Published May 27, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Elephant, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards, Illustrated by Susan Farrell

Elephant, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards, Illustrated by Susan Farrell

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Elephant, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards, Illustrated by Susan Farrell

Elephant: “Responsibility ~ Cooperation ~ Empathy”

The Gift: “Elephants have one of the closet and most loyal families of all the animal kingdom. They live together for up to 80 years, they babysit each other’s young and if one Elephant becomes sick, others bring it food, and protect if until it is well again. When an Elephant dies, the herd covers the elder with dirt and branches. Passing herds will pause at the grave site and offer their respect – even if they did not know the Elephant.”

The Message: “When Elephant enters your life, she brings great blessings. With gentle power and cooperation, Elephant trumpets a reminder that you are a force for good in the world! There are people all around you that love and support you. Ask for help when you need it and be grateful when it comes. Look for ways also to help others on their path. Keep your eyes open for ways you can bring the gift of special support and be helpful when others least expect it!”

The Call: “Take time today to say “thank you” to someone who has been helpful to you when you really needed it. And find someone today that you can show special kindness to. Help them start or finish something they are trying to do. This could be as simple as doing the dishes, cleaning a room, quietly listening or holding someone’s hand as they take their first step into a big dream.”*

~ by Chip Richards

Elephants practice Unconditional love and acceptance by caring for each other’s young, by honouring the members of their clans who have passed on, and those of other clans as well. They are deeply connected to the Earth and to the ancestors and ancients. They practice compassion, loyalty and love. We can learn valuable lessons from the elephant.

This is also a reminder of the power of gratitude in our lives.

Gratitude holds unimaginable power. Gratitude has the power to transmute negative into positive, and turns us into magnets for more to be grateful for. It allows us to rise above the drama of everyday life, and it offers us an olive branch when things feel beyond our control. Gratitude can rekindle the Light within us when all else seems to have failed.

What are you most grateful for? What keeps you going every moment of every day? What have you possibly taken for granted that  you could express great thanks for, knowing that it has made a difference in your life, has made you a better person? Take time today to express this gratitude to someone who has helped you, who has loved you, and who has helped to make you who you are today. Buy a bouquet or pick some wild flowers or deliver a hand written note. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated, even a simple Thank you hug or smile will do wonders.

Namaste

Dee
