Daily Angel Oracle Card: Wild Horse, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Wild Horse: “Freedom ~ Sensitivity ~ Spirit”

The Gift: “Horse has an amazing ability to feel the energy of those around her. When you feel nervous, the Horse feels nervous. When you are calm, so is the Horse. Horses have the largest eyes of any land animal and memories that are even stronger than the elephant’s. When a trained horse is released into the wild it quickly lets go of all of its training and returns to its deeper spirit of freedom.”

The Message: “With all of the noise of phones, computers, TVs and life around us, the message of Horse is to listen to the quiet feelings of your body and sense what is right and true for you. Every moment of the day you are surrounded by miracles and magic, you just have to be open to seeing them come your way. Horse says, do not let yourself be pulled in directions that do not “feel” right deep inside. And do not try to do too many things all at once. Do not think too much about tomorrow, just take a deep breath and bring all of your attention to the magic in this moment right here … and here… and here. With Horse as your guide, even the simplest moments can hold miracles.”

The Call: “This week, trust your “horse sense.” Take a step, smell the breeze and open your eyes to what is around you. If it feels good, take another step and open yourself up to what comes next. If the wind shifts, calling you someplace new, move in that direction and see what that feels like. Trust the wisdom of your inner senses. Follow the path of warmth and light. Follow what feels good in your body and Horse will lead you into the field of magic possibilities.”*

We are about to embark on a brand new adventure; a new chapter in our life journey. Beginning with stepping into a new year; comes a new sense of freedom and possibility. We have learned so much this year and we are still assimilating all the powerful energies that came from those lessons. Add a busy holiday season filled with the polarities of stress and joy and it can be quite overwhelming! Know that you must take time away from all of this to allow yourself to grow and to heal.

We are called back to reality by Horse medicine, that of deep instinct and wild abandon. Horse is highly intelligent and independent; you must earn her trust it is not just given away freely. Yet once you have proven yourself, you will have a special place in her heart forever. Horse needs space, she needs to run free, explore and burn off pent up energy. Horse is sensual and completely in tune with her environment and those around her, she knows right away if an opportunity should be taken or passed by. She fearlessly moves forward trusting her instinct and her deep connection to Spirit, and asks you to do the same. She encourages you to explore your own personal power.

Horse reminds you that your wild inner one needs to get outside and breathe fresh air, feel the elements, embrace the Earth. This part of you must be honored in order to deepen your connection to the Universe and set your Soul free.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Growth, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell, artwork by Rene Milot Published by Watkins Publishing

Growth: “I grow stronger in spirit every day.”

Symbols: “Shooting star, green, leaves unfurling, child, pine trees on mountain.”

Growth: “As you progress through life, your experiences can increase and deepen your spiritual understanding of yourself and your place in the universe. Every loving experience feeds your inner being. Even suffering may play a part in your soul’s journey, by teaching wisdom and compassion.

The Angel of Growth advises you to attend to this spiritual progress. Sit quietly and ask her to show you how to balance the needs of your body and soul, so that you can find the energy to aim for the stars. If you already do a lot of therapy or other work on your inner self, the Angel counsels you to pause and process what you have learned before continuing. Know that you are progressing at the right pace for you.”*

I love this beautiful new card deck by Chrissie Astell! It is a wonderful reminder that we have a team, and are always working with our angels and guides to learn, transform and invite more love into our lives. It is also confirmation that we are never alone and have comfort and assistance available to us at all times. The deck is split into four sections, each represented by the Archangel who oversees the angels and guides in their particular domain of love, growth and expansion. The Archangels and Angels are beautifully represented and the cards are perfect to set on an altar or beside the bed to enhance the connection to working with each individual angel. I also love the idea of placing a crystal with the card to amplify the energetic connection and open the channel to higher wisdom and divine love.

The Growth card goes perfectly with our theme of late. We are awakening, expanding and growing into the next phase of our lives. Things are changing fast and this growth can be uncomfortable, scary and exhilarating all at the same time! We are encouraged to lean on the wisdom, guidance and loving support of our angels and guides at this time, knowing that we All have a team that is there for us, if we can receive what they so generously offer.

When you doubt yourself, you doubt your team’s ability to guide you on. Instead, try looking for signs, symbols and messages of confirmation and direction. Have fun with it. Open up and receive without  over analyzing or writing it off to mere coincidence. Get away from distractions and reconnect with the natural world where your connection is strengthened. And most importantly, when things feel light, go with the flow. Surrender to the divine plan and see how life opens up to you. See what opportunities arise, what doors open and what miracles come your way.

And so it is

Namaste

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose

Published March 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose: The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~ Tenzin Gyatso; The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet

“The North Node points our the best areas for us to direct our talents and our wills.

The North Node shows the area of gifts. It represents destiny. It is directly opposed to the South Node which is much more serious and restrictive. The North Node represents where we benefit from good work done in past lives and how that assists us in the here and now. The North Node is the place in the chart where life becomes easier. It acts like a karmic Jupiter where a doorway opens and suddenly you are where you need to be.

When The North Node  card presents itself, you can be assured destiny has a place in your situation. Through many life lessons, you are about to arrive at a place for your highest good. Your life is expanding and opportunities pour in swiftly, catching you quite by surprise. This card also represents past life memories and karmic connections.

You may meet people whom you have known over many past lives, perhaps in a soul family where bonds form very quickly. You are taking on a larger view of your life, which not only emphasizes your talents, but aligns your talents with like minded souls. It is a fortuitous time to begin a privately owned business or other professional venture that will bring in extra finances. Whatever this venture may be, fun, creativity and optimism, will be a part of it. At this time you will feel less limited, and your goals and plans will have far-reaching potential.

Keep in mind, the lunar nodes always bring shifts and changes. For instance, a relationship with someone who has ‘destiny’ spelled all over him or her, may suddenly walk into your life. If so, this relationship will start rapidly and be life-altering. One job may end swiftly and you will find yourself in a much more suitable position. If the energy is used correctly, it will promote greater optimism and prosperity. This means finances are also likely to increase.

This energy is now telling you that the schooling part is over for now, lessons have been learned, and you are now to act on these lessons toward a greater destiny. At this time, it is evident where you need to go and where you need to be.

As the soul’s messenger, the appearance of the North Node card in a spread indicates growing into what is called the larger unknown, meaning you are moving toward a point that promises greater fulfillment. The nodes are karmic; therefore the lessons are not easy ones. Matters will develop suddenly but there is still work to be done. Luck is on your side with an opening toward greater things. Karmic lessons learned and processed bring fulfillment and happiness.”

North Node Card in Brief: “Life’s purpose; the soul’s enlargement; balance; karmic rewards and karmic bonds; memories of previous lives; reinforcement; support; movement forward; being right; the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; undiscovered talents; fulfillment; the things we can fall back on; being in the flow; trusting destiny; meaningful exchanges; inner balance; the foundation for future success; achievement; giving credit; considering the other side; working with others; emotional security; the path of least resistance; adaptability; inner strength; playing games; wisdom; trust; working well with youth; understanding children; optimism; a stroke of good luck; generosity; charity; wealth; the color deep red; kind authority; the exploration of ideas; expansion and growth.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “Ten of Cups”

Key Ideas: “Positive karma; rewards; the soul’s enlargement; being in the right place at the right time.”*

Goddess Durga and Hematite

Published February 28, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Goddess Durga and Hematite: “Spear of The Guru Mother”

“We bring you the empowerment of spear of the guru mother. Sometimes there is so much choice that we struggle to commit. It is often not an issue of unwillingness to make an effort, but concern that the choice might not be the ‘right’ choice. We might pray to the Universe to be shown what to do according to a wisdom greater than our own. Although our free will is always in place – we are able to accept a task divinely given, or reject it – the Universe answers every prayer. In your heart you have been asking for guidance to be shown what you need to do in a particular situation or, perhaps more generally, in your life at this time. You want to know the best way forward so your actions are in alignment with heaven. In response, you have now become the spear of the guru mother.”

“The Spear of the Guru Mother is the direct, focused and clear task given to you by the fiercely compassionate divine feminine. The guru mother is the unconditionally loving guide who will protect your soul, keeping you on the straight and narrow (spiritually speaking) and ensure that your efforts bring you the best spiritual results and not lead you off onto a distracting and ultimately unnecessary tangent.

Although you can choose whether or not you wish to accept the task, know that it has been divinely bestowed upon you. How do you know which task this is? Look to your life. What’s happening? What’s possible for you to act upon? Where is your growth edge? What are you currently empowered to do? There’s your task. Do what you can and do it now.

The oracle also comes to you with this understanding – if the Divine gives you a task, you can handle it. Even if you are going to need to grow, you have it within to complete it successfully. When the Universe gives you an opportunity or life situation to work through, it is giving you a vote of confidence. The Divine Mother says to you, ‘ Here is my will. I’ll empower you, now go for it!’ If you want to take her advice, don’t hesitate or doubt. Be as focused and forward moving as if you were the spear that she had thrown with her almighty hand and flawless aim, heading straight towards the center of the target.

When the Oracle of Spear of the Guru Mother comes to you, you are being told your efforts have divine power behind them. The situations in your life you are willing to grapple with are going to resolve far more quickly and potently than you might have believed possible. The power of your own efforts, amplified with divine will, creates extraordinary movement. Distraction, procrastination and hesitation shall not touch you. Your focus will be complete and your task shall be attained. The trust you feel in yourself and the Divine will increase because of this. You will gain more confidence in yourself. You will become  game for bigger and bolder challenges. The Universe will be able to ask more of you and give you more because you shall be increasingly open to it. The risk you take at this time, with absolute intention, will bring you so much more than resolution of the task at hand.

If you have been overwhelmed, confused, pulled in too many directions and feeling as though you are trying to do everything and completing nothing, this oracle comes with guidance. The spear of the guru mother, if requested, will fly through your life and take you along with it for the ride. The unleashing of divine will shall clear away the inessentials and reveal to you what is important and what you need to do. If you are willing to surrender into this fierce grace, you will be honoured by it. Go into your heart, and if you feel brave and bold enough (you are! you are!), then complete the following healing process to invoke the guru mother’s intervention.”

Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:

I call upon the Crystal Angel of Hematite and Goddess Durga who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing empowerment of the spear of the guru mother. May my actions be true, decisive and pure. May I ground truth through my actions in the world. May the spear of the guru mother enter my life and direct my being into fearless, focused action. May all beings, through unconditional love and divine mercy, be blessed with the clear conscious awareness of divine will. May they be empowered by it to act with fearlessness and joy. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

Synchronicity. Durga was mentioned in yesterday’s card. The day before we were reminded that we are closing the chapter of January and February to embark on the faster pace of March. This is a message of action. Of getting out there and doing. Of making things happen, not just thinking and planning but jumping in and getting your hands dirty.

We are about to be challenged to walk the walk not just talk the talk. It is easy to stay in planning mode forever, thinking and analyzing and doing the research and not really moving forward. Wanting it to be handed to us without putting in any effort what so ever.

Know that you are co-creating here, but you must hold up your end of the bargain. You move forward with focused intention and the Universe meets you there. You choose your direction and step forward boldly and the Universe takes your hand. We are in this together and we are being assisted. We have put so much though and so much feeling and so much agonizing. Now it is time for things to get moving.

Start the ball rolling. Get some momentum. Get in there and DO IT!

Namaste

Increase

Published October 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Increase, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Increase, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

“Increase all that is good and true. Increase all that is nourishing and uplifting within yourself and for others. In a time of golden opportunity, anything less than abundantly sharing falls way too short of the mark. It has been said in so many ways, and is worth saying again here and now, that giving is far sweeter than receiving.

Today it seems to be increasingly rare to hear of acts of sincere and open generosity that have been undertaken without expectation of reward or recognition. Those delicious, random acts of kindness are not something we usually read about in the papers. Seldom are they ever mentioned on television. Instead, we are more likely to hear of those who have amassed fortunes and used that wealth to expand their buying power.

Nevertheless, when we do hear of some act of inexplicable generosity and caring, we pause, we are moved, and our lives somehow seem benefited by it. It does not make sense that some goodness that happens on the other side of the world should touch our own hearts, but it does. It seems to be a cosmic law that kindness freely given has a potential for expanding exponentially. It seems to go a long way towards healing ourselves and our planet.

Generosity is a simple affair, and the true benefits are primarily experienced within. They are revealed when spirit is unbounded, not constrained by greed or small-mindedness. Then giving becomes receiving, expanding and enriching our hearts. It is tragic to be shrunken and contracted; it is magic to experience inner richness and to spread it around without reservation. So much more is available when we come form a place of ‘plus’ rather than ‘minus’.

Take a walk somewhere in nature, preferably during the fullness of spring, in a place teeming with flowers. Consider how all that richness, that beauty and grandeur, is made available for all to enjoy whether they deserve it or not. Nature does not hold back; she is never miserly. Her times of increase are times that benefit all life, not just a chosen few. She is the ultimate benefactress. She grows flowers at our feet, brings rain to quench our thirst and songbirds to delight our ears, and paints the sky with so many start we are not able to count them. We humans reap the rewards of that abundance when we function from a willingness to share.

The time of Increase is a time to look to Nature for guidance, to learn from that abundant and generous source. Following in her footsteps, you will come to understand compassion, to experience serenity, and discover your own unlimited capacity to nurture yourself and others. By really taking her lessons to heart, you can’t help but be inspired to become the best you can be, and in turn to support others to grow to the fullest realization of their potential.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

I’ve always wished there was media that just told us all the great stuff going on in the world. I wonder how that would shift things. Everyone with hope and full hearts, hearing about things from a completely different perspective. They could cover the bad stuff, but from a different angle. Like this is the latest disaster, but here are the hero’s and here are all the great outcomes despite it. I think it would take some getting used to, as we would probably feel bad for not acknowledging the worst of the worst. We would have to get used to not focusing on the fear, the terror, the worst case scenario. We could avoid shame and guilt by acknowledging those hurt or traumatized or lost, but we would balance it with the positive. I wonder how that would look? I wonder how that could shift us? I wonder how it would motivate someone to desire to be on the front of Rolling Stone magazine for doing something awesome, instead of bombing a marathon.

It’s up to us to undertake it, one good deed at a time. To increase the vibration of the planet by having a positive influence on those around us. Those we come into contact with every day. Smiling makes a difference. Holding open a door. Being kind when behind the wheel is a good one… how about letting someone in instead of cutting someone off? Cultivating kindness and patience. Being generous with your time. Making eye contact. Listening to their story instead of talking over them with yours. So many little things to make such a humongous difference.

Do at least one today. Be mindful of it. Expect nothing in return, knowing that the ultimate reward would be that person doing something and continuing the chain of positivity.

Know that you can make a difference. But it has to start today.

Namaste

Serapis Bey

Serapis Bey, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Serapis Bey, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Serapis Bey: “Ascension”

“Move into your true self. Rise above the darkness – the light is here.”

About Serapis Bey: “Serapis Bey is the light keeper in charge of ascension. He once served as a priest in Luxor, Egypt, healing those passing on to cross over into the light. Now he is a presence we can call on in order to ascend. Ascension means rising up – it reminds us of the story of Christ being resurrected after death. This means that Serpais Bey can guide us from the lowest states of being, back to the light. His energy is almost like that of a phoenix, giving us the support to move out of our own hell or darkness into a space that supports our growth.”

Extended Message from Serapis Bey: “The stars cannot shine without darkness. You may have experienced a low state of being, trauma, or depression, but this is a new beginning. Become aware of growth. There is always room for improvement. There’s also a sense of presentation now. You may be receiving documentation or certification to acknowledgment your growth or experience. It’s important to cherish this time and to realize that without the challenges or obstacles you have faced, you would not be as strong, powerful or focused as you are today. You are ascending personally personally and spiritually at this time and the universe is here to support it.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Here we have another reference to the transformation and transmutation of the energies of the 8:8 Lion’s Gateway. What is darkness must be brought into the Light. And the Light is here, Now! This is a message of such profound change that it resembles resurrection ~ the phoenix rising up from the ashes. New life. Death of the old and Rebirth. Complete transformation and radical shifting change.

We are awakening to ascend. We are realizing why we are here. Remembering our Soul Path, and why we came here lifetime after lifetime. We are almost able to complete our mission and start again in the creation of the New Earth.

What else is possible here? What have you learned so far on this journey, in this particular incarnation? How can you apply your previous life lessons and experience to the rest of your life now? Where can you release these lessons and avoid repeating patterns? Where is change necessary in order to grow; where have you been holding on for too long and what areas of your life are calling you to expand and flourish?

You are creating the rest of your life, right here and now. Look closely at where you are putting your energy, your focus and your intention. Take responsibility. Be the driving force in your own life.

And so it is

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law Artwork by Barbara Moore

Page of Pentacles: “Opportunity slumbers like the dragon upon whose crest the Page of Pentacles rests. Dreams and visions vibrate along its emerald length. They rise up through the soles of the feet of any who tread upon that viridian path, transmitted from the leviathan’s sleeping mind – dreams of success and of being able to possess material comfort and stability. She knows those visions that the dragon offers – a wondrous garden of delights. She is the keeper of that garden, dedicated to it’s preservation.

The Page of Pentacles comes bearing her message for opportunities of growth and prosperity. It is a small spark she holds, but she is just the harbinger for potential. Make of that spark what you will – a mere smoldering coal or the blaze of a rising star – but that choice and vision is something that each individual must find on their won, using the skills and resources at hand.

She is trustworthy, diligent, studious, and embraces scholarship. She is practical, down to earth, one who reflects before acting but at the same time is unafraid to embrace a world of physical enjoyment. She is lighthearted and joyous, and her spirit is entwined with everything around her.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Just as the sleeping dragon is dreaming the dreams of possibility, we can use our vision and our imagination to dream our creations into reality. It may not seem like a powerful tool, but it is just as powerful as the dragon is upon waking; upon taking flight. Perched above the dragon is the owl, symbol of magic, mystery and intuition. The Faery folk watch in awe from a careful distance, knowing the full power of the dragon could be awoken at any moment.

Opportunity can be subtle, an invitation to explore the realms beyond your comfort zone; a dream starting to form around the edges of your conscious mind. Maybe it comes looking exactly like something that scares you, makes you cringe… yet if you took it in small consistent steps it would be easier than you think. Maybe it is something that does not at first seem like an opportunity; you don’t feel like going, you have other plans, you want to stay home and go to bed with a good book. No more hiding your head in the sand.

Know that dedication and commitment are key here. What do you want to create in your reality? Where are your thoughts, feelings and intentions focused? What do you believe is possible? Have more than a mustard seed of faith in yourself and this process. Know that your limitations are but illusions; that which seems insurmountable is actually just smoke and mirrors.

It is time to awaken the dragon.

Namaste

Dee
