Seven Of Earth

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

Seven Of Earth: “Meditation, Grounding, Connection, Cycles, Change, Interaction, Purification, Stress”

Key Phrases: “Get out into nature. Let Gaia heal you. Connection between self and the world. All is connected and has influence. Address the stress. Meditate and still your mind. Put down the tech toys. Time to physically interact and connect.”

Meaning Of The Card: “The Seven Of Earth symbolizes a need to both nurture and maintain a connection between spirit, self, and the world around you. Ground, integrate, and connect.

To feel and embrace this connection does not require any belief in the Divine, but a simple awareness that all is connected on an energetic level. At this time, look out into the world to see, feel, and understand the cycles of life and nature and how they affect and influence you.

Over time, life and day-to-day demands may begin to wear away at us, making us irritable and reactive … less adaptable and flexible … more fearful of the changes going on within us, and around us. All of these things can make us feel alone and disconnected.

The Seven Of Earth symbolizes the importance of connection and being part of the natural world, but also the need to address areas of potential stress in your life before they become a problem.

It is time to meditate and still your mind. Make a habit of taking time to sit and meditate in nature, and allow all the stress to flow out of you and into the earth. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax and become one with Gaia and Great Spirit. Reconnect. You do not have to believe. Just allow yourself to be still, at peace, and free of the impurities and worries that cloud your sense and good judgment.”

Potential Blockage: “It is often easy to become focused on one aspect of our lives to the exclusion of all else. This can result in a real disconnect from the world and life that goes on around us.

We are all part of the world, and yet most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, secluded and closed off to both nature and real physical interaction.

Are you missing out? Has  your world become a very insular place consisting of home and office? Do you now do the majority of your socializing and human interaction via phone or computer? When was the last time you were out in the world connecting with others in a tangible manner – without looking at your latest piece of tech every five minutes?

Seven Of Earth as Challenger signifies a need to step away from technology and reconnect with family and the community at large in a mindful and present manner.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

Today we are beckoned towards a deeper level of connection through ourselves to the natural world. Unplug. Ground. Breathe. Plant yourself in the present moment. Take a much needed break from the information highway, the daily routine. Get outside. That’s an order!

Take stock of your current stress level and what the causes of this stress are. How can you streamline? How can you release some of the stress before it becomes overwhelm? Do you need to ask for assistance? Delegate tasks that are weighing you down? Are you feeling disconnected? Isolated? Overburdened? Alone?

Heal yourself by aligning with the rhythms and cycles of the outside world. Look to Mother Nature; where she is at is where part of you is at too. The phases of the Moon; the position of the Stars in the sky; how much Sun we get in a day… it all contributes to how you are feeling. The weather, the foods available at this particular time to harvest. What you need to wear in order to keep you warm or cool. It all makes a difference. Listen to your body. Nourish it well. Exercise it. Hydrate it. Align it with nature rather than the man made world. Make space in your mind and in your heart for peace, calm and harmony.

Take breaks from people and situations that feel draining or toxic. Schedule some time for yourself every day, even if only for a few minutes of deep breathing or meditation. If possible, get outside for a walk, take a yoga class or express your creativity. Find ways that resonate with you to ground and realign with your life’s purpose.

Namaste

Obsidian

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Obsidian, from the Eternal Crystal Oracle Card deck, by Jade-Sky

Obsidian: “Protection – Root Chakra”

“Obsidian is a very protective crystal. It has appeared for you today to provide you with a grounded protective energy. Obsidian also reminds you of the importance of psychic protection. It is very important that you feel protected on all levels. To psychically protect yourself, imagine you are surrounded by a very strong bubble of golden light. The colour gold is used to keep your energy strong and it is extra resilient to lower energies.

To keep yourself physically protected when you are by yourself, take note of your surroundings. Always pay attention to any feelings or warnings that  you may receive. If you have a bad feeling about going to a particular place, event or area, notice and acknowledge that feeling. Perhaps you can be extra cautious if you do go, or you can go with someone else or even reschedule if that is a possibility.

To protect yourself spiritually, surround yourself with as many positive people as you can. If there is someone who is quite draining or negative in your life, protect yourself with the gold bubble before you go near their energy.

Obsidian is associated with the root chakra. It helps remove negativity and restores your energy.”

~ By Jade-Sky

Not everyone is ready to shift. This does not mean that we get to judge them, and it does not put us above them. In fact, it may be an integral part of their journey to experience exactly what they are experiencing right now. It is really none of our business. We can support them as best we can. We can encourage them if they are ready to be encouraged. We can hug them or hold them; or hold space for them. We can send love, light and healing to them directly from our heart center. But we do not get to parade around thinking that we are better, more enlightened, more conscious or more awake; for really, who knows? Maybe they are ahead of us and we have yet to experience what they are going through…. or maybe we have been through it and lived to tell the tale. Either way, it is their journey, and we can only accept them unconditionally. Which is our true Divine essence; the love and the light.

However, if you find that you are affected by the energies of someone else, there is a good chance that it is your ego kicking up a fuss. There is a good chance that you may be focusing on the darkness instead of the Light within. And there is a good chance that for some reason, dealing with this person brings up fears, doubts and all that other icky emotional stuff that you have tried so hard to deny as a part of you as a human. Alas, none of us are perfect. If you are affected by the energies of another, Obsidian is here to protect you with a shield of golden light. A bubble of energetic protection that absorbs negative energy before it can get to you.

But your work is not done. You must still send the Love. And the Light.

After all, is that not why you came back here?

And for the record, there just may be someone out there sending you love and light, while they wear their obsidian around you… just a thought~

Fluorite ~ Self Discipline

Published June 28, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Fluorite ~ Self Discipline, from the Crystal Ally Oracle Card deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Fluorite ~ Self Discipline, from the Crystal Ally Oracle Card deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fluorite ~ Self Discipline, from the Crystal Ally Oracle Card deck, by Naisha Ahsian

Fluorite ~ Self Discipline: “Standing upon an empty plain, with no support available, this Fluorite being holds it’s self erect through the practice of self discipline. We do not always have others around to hold us up and enable us to walk the right path. In these times, it is important for us to develop our own self discipline, so that we can follow the correct path, even when there is no one to see us.

Flouorite is a stone of unusual capabilities and talents. Occurring in a rainbow array of colours and forms, Fluorite’s crystalline structure encourages order, concentration and grounding, and yet maintains one’s energy in a high state of openness to Universal frequencies. Fluorite not only encourages reception of higher guidance and information, but aids in its retention, organization, and utilization as well. Fluorite effects the brain directly, reordering it and allowing for the information and insight that one attained in the higher realms to be applied to one’s Earth plane experiences.

Fluorite energies are both grounding and stimulating of one’s higher energies. It speaks of organization, self control, discipline, and the need to apply higher guidance that one accesses during meditation and prayer. Fluorite discourages the common addiction to “spacing out” on higher energies, and encourages the application of those energies on the Earth plane. It aids in clearing the energy pathways of the body, and encourages the Light body to integrate with the physical self. Fluorite can aid those who are sensitive and open to the higher realms to maintain an Earth connection.

Fluorite’s main effect upon one’s energetic and emotional systems, however, is to remind one of the necessity of developing self discipline in order to fulfill one’s role as a spiritual warrior. The ability to bring the body into line with the mind, and to bring the mind into harmony with the Spirit, is Fluorite’s true talent.

The development of self discipline and self rule are crucial in those who truly wish to serve otehrs in the coming age. Self discipline is the ability to monitor and correct one’s thoughts, actions, and words, in order to improve one’s self. It is the inner strength that is necessary to create one’s life as one wishes it to be. It is through this inner improvement that we are able to cultivate the skills and knowledge that will aid us in creating the Age of Light upon the Earth.

The Message: When Fluorite enters your cards, you are being asked to review your current practices and life style. Fluorite may be calling you to make changes in your life. This could mean organizing your life more efficiently, making necessary changes in your habits, or applying yourself to your path more fully.

We in the forefront of the Age of Light on Earth, are being called upon to organize and apply in our lives those bits of knowledge and understanding with which our journey has supplied us. If you feel as though you have not applied this knowledge in your life, Fluorite is asking you to make the necessary adjustments.

Self discipline means living the life you espouse, or in other words, to “walk your talk”. If hyou have strayed from the path that you know you should be on, you are now being called upon to step back in line with Spirit. Open yourself to the frequency of Fluorite, and allow yourself to begin to vibrate with its energies of self discipline and action.

Chakra: Crown

Affirmation: My body is a reflection of my mind.

My mind is a reflection of my spirit.

I am a reflection of Divine Light.”*

– Naisha Ahsian

This is a powerful message from Fluorite to get back on track on our spiritual path. This is not about accolades, or about impressing anyone, it is about standing in our own authenticity and allowing our unique light to shine through in everything we do. It is not about holding back, it is not about editing or compromising ourselves, it is about perseverance in the face of adversity. Rising above the drama, and continuing on our path, no matter what. It is about following our hearts; painting our dreams in realtime. Creating through our thoughts. Taking care of our bodies. Connecting with Mother Gaia. And seeing all the blessings that surround us every single day.

And wearing, holding, meditating with or placing a Fluorite under your pillow would be perfect. Choose the colour that resonates with you, or a rainbow Fluorite to cover all your bases. They are affordable and gorgeous, bringing clarity and cleansing the astral body.

Namaste

Red, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue: Red

Red: “Passion, Survival.”

“Red asks you to check in to see if you are balanced or unbalanced. This colour pertains to your physical body at its deepest levels. It also asks if you are grounded or scattered. It is time to tune in to your animal impulses. If you are unbalanced, your fears beginning to expand. Release them. Trust that your instincts will sound off and remove you from harm’s way if necessary. In doing so, you will feel liberated to enjoy life more. If you are balanced and grounded, that would mean you have chosen the environment that your physical body thrives in.

Red resonates with the root chakra, passion, the drive for survival and sexual energy. It also represents the circulatory system and the strengthening of life force. Perhaps you need to check your blood pressure of your metabolism levels. This card may also be letting you know that is is time to discover or acknowledge your passions. Taking bold action towards what stirs your excitement, especially if you are worried about money, will guide you to your bliss. The Universe is supporting you with the flow of abundance.

Additional Meanings Of This Card:

Archangels Metatron, Jophiel, Michael, and Ariel are associated with this symbol. You need to ground and balance yourself, your home, or your career. Affirm your abundance in the face of any money issues. You might be angry or upset about something. It is time to discover the root of the issue and release those feelings and situations that no longer serve you. Your vital force is a bit low; look around to find what might be draining you. Wear red to give yourself a boost.”*

-Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Getting grounded can be challenging if you like to have your head in the stars, like I do! It’s always challenging for me to come back down to Mother Earth. Even though I do feel a deep connection to Gaia, it sometimes just feels easier and lighter to be dreamy and high up in the chakras. The only issue is, of course, that since we are here, experiencing this physical plane, we must come down to Earth and plant ourselves into the present moment. It actually makes things run more smoothly, it’s easier to “be here now” and fully appreciate everything around you.

So how then, do you get grounded? Well, I like to use Hematite, one in each hand, or one on my Root Chakra just at the base of my tailbone. Hematite, known by Shaman as “Blood Of The Earth Stone” in many ancient cultures, is an excellent grounding stone. Even it’s physical weight helps to remind you that it is bringing you back down to the Earth. A simple meditation that is effective for me is to take two Hematite stones, one in each palm and stand outside, barefoot, either on the grass, dirt or preferably sand. Feel the Earth beneath your feet and imagine roots forming from your feet right into the Earth below you, deeper and deeper they go, right into the center of the Earth; the very heart of Gaia. Imagine that you become your favourite tree, rooted firmly into the ground, and standing tall and strong. See your arms as branches; see the leaves, needles or flowers; feel your protective bark. Breathe deeply and just Be… a tree!

If this is hard for you to visualize, then try an even simpler method: Go outside barefoot and hug the nearest tree, sending it love and gratitude for helping you ground yourself. Breathe deeply and imagine yourself blending into oneness with the tree. Know that the tree has everything it needs; there is no worry being a tree, everything is in perfect Divine order. Trees symbolize serenity, wisdom, stillness and harmony.

Need to ground? Go be a tree! You will be so glad you did.

Tree ~ Grounding

Published January 3, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

tree grounding

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Tree ~ Grounding.

Tree ~ Grounding: “Consider how trees, the Standing Ones, exemplify balance between heaven and Earth. Their branches reach out and up, as if in praise of the bounty that Sky Father has to offer. Their leaves breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen – a vital process for so many beings on the planet, including humans. their trunks and roots have planted themselves firmly in the soil, allowing them to receive the gifts of another kind of nourishment from Earth Mother. In turn, they freely and gratefully give back by accommodating the needs of so many beings with what they have to offer.

In this image, we see a magnificent tree, situated in a meadow at the edge of a pond, greeting the early rays of light from the dawn. We see its reflection in the still water but do not see its roots, as they are embedded in the depths of the moist, fertile body of Earth Mother. The strength of these roots supports the tree’s innate desire to grow to the light, to reach not only upward, but outward as well.

You have been feeling scattered and spacey lately. You are not fully in your body, and that is because you have not been able to get grounded. this is quite literal in that your body is made of the materials of the Earth. So when you feel disconnected from your body, you are inevitably disconnected from Earth. So get yourself grounded. You can do so quite simply.

With your feet firmly planted on the ground wherever you are, feel the etheric roots that extend into the Earth. Follow your breath so that each time you exhale, you can imagine these roots going even deeper. Each time you inhale, draw up the loving, nurturing power of Earth Mother.

As soon as you have the chance, go outdoors and sit or stand with your back supported by a tree. Feel its solidness and integrity – it is simply being a tree. Breathe in the essence of the Tree Spirit, and allow this to fill you up. Walk barefoot very slowly on the ground so you can maintain this connection.“*

Many of the darker crystals such as black tourmaline, black obsidian, smokey quartz, hematite, shungite, jet and onyx can be use also as grounding aids. These stones can be used in meditation, carrying in a pocket or worn as a pendant or bracelet to help grounding on a regular basis. Each crystal should be cleansed and cleared of energy periodically. Every month I place all my crystal jewelry out in the full moon for an energy clearing and recharge. I use a Tibetan singing bowl or tuning fork every few days or whenever I have been in crowds, around anyone with lower vibrational or negative energy or have had anything particularly stressful happen. I can always feel the difference when I clear my crystals, and I find that they help clear me much more rapidly when they are cleared regularly.

Connecting with the Earth is something I am committed to doing every day of 2014. It’s one of my resolutions. It’s too easy to skip getting outside because of work and all the other obligations and responsibilities but a couple of months ago we adopted a dog, so not there is no excuse! We have favourite trees that we visit, hug and admire every time we walk and on New Years eve, just a few days ago, we went and “planted” crystals at the base of our three favourites, knowing that they are there every time we stop for a quick hug or a longer inner reflection. We call them the Magic Trees and they have a particular magic about them that can’t be denied. They are young pine trees that are just the right distance apart to hug them both at the same time, and when you stand right between them and look up, it looks like they connect together in the sky above. We have even seen the face of the green man in their branches, which remind us of fireworks against the sky; there is a perfect circle of young trees and we can feel their energy as we stand in the center.

tree grounding

Find your magic tree and make a concerted effort to get out there every day and give it a hug. Tell it your hopes and dreams, meditate beneath it with your back against it’s trunk. Feel the magic, it’s all part of our amazing connection to Gaia, Mother Earth, who generously shares her love with us every single day. It’s time for us to send some back to her.

Namaste
