Daily Angel Oracle Card: Building Blocks, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Building Blocks: ” Strong foundations; a beautiful work in progress”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have everything you need to cultivate an extraordinary life. This is a time when your focus needs to be on the foundations you build upon. Your work, your relationships, and your very being are underwritten by your values, ethics, morals, and core beliefs. Are they still true for you? Will they stand the test of time and serve as the solid grounding upon which you construct  your life? Now you are making changes that will affect everything in a positive way. Your destiny is truly a remarkable and beautiful design.”

Relationship Message: “When you see this card, know that you are attracting new relationships into your life – and solidifying the ones that you already have – by building them on the foundations of honesty, humility, clear communication and a genuine desire to know one another. You are moving toward laying the groundwork for a relationship with the firm footing that will ensure it can withstand any storm. Long-standing relationships are also repaired and strengthened. You and the other person are stronger, wiser, and more powerful together than apart.”

Prosperity Message: “You have everything you need to turn iron into gold in the alchemical process of creating the prosperous life you desire. Now is the time to build on the strong foundation you have already laid for your prosperity. Keep in mind that these building blocks are imbued with the sparkling energy of your intentions. Own your dream, and remember that you always have more than enough and you always are enough, so abundance is ever present. Your creativity is Divinely inspired, and the design for your life is taking shape in service to the world. You are meant for success.”

Protection Message: “Now is the time to address the cracks in the foundations of your life. Perhaps your values have changed and it is time to strengthen your convictions and let go of the things that no longer serve the vision you have for your life. Or perhaps you chose to ignore the signs that a situation or agreement you have entered into is not right for you. Remove the rotten pieces and reinforce your core moral strength and integrity. Now is the time for rigorous honesty, for you are called to renovate and upgrade your consciousness! You will be so happy when you do. Spirit has a spectaular blueprint for your life far beyond your imagination. Do not be afraid to replace what is not solid.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This message ties in with the numerology and astrology we see at this time. As I have mentioned before, we are in a “one” year in numerology, having finished a “nine” year of completion in 2016. We also have all the planets in alignment for another two weeks or so, until Feb 6th. So, this is an extra auspicious time for us to set ourselves up for not only the rest of this year, but the entire nine year cycle we are embarking on starting right NOW. Phew, no pressure!

But this is not about pressure, or about jumping in, it is about setting clear intentions and building solid foundations . It is about goals and dreams and manifestation, and it is about taking responsibility for creating our own reality. There is no putting it off; it is just not an option to see yourself as a victim of circumstance; and it is no longer an option to not show up for yourself and your life. No one but you can take the reins. If you have given your personal power away and let others make your decisions for you, then it is time to take back your power. Now. If you have been hiding behind distractions and drama, or numbing yourself with self-medication… it is time to wake up and move forward fearlessly.

Remember, you have everything you need to turn lead into gold.

Namaste

Follow The Leader

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Follow The Leader, from The Enchanted Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Follow The Leader: “Every life is a teaching tool for other. Your authenticity and honesty are an example to those around you.”

“You are being called to lead others by example. Your wisdom has been earned as a result of your bravery in the adventure of your life. The experiences of battles won and lost, places discovered, tears shed, and joy revealed have placed you in a unique position to be of service to others.

Your suffering has been crystallized into a talisman of wisdom. Now you must share it. By being fully authentic, you will lead others into the light. You will be required to divulge some things about your past so that you may help someone else. Lead with love. There is another message here as well. Look to those whose great character and accomplishments you admire. Emulate the leaders you respect. You will then in turn have more to offer.

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “As Challenger, the Follow The Leader card offers a gentle push to get up and take the lead. In a relationship or partnership, be the one to voice what must be said. Muster your courage and speak your needs aloud. Affirm what you like and what you feel. Do not just hope for someone else to fix the problems  you see.

If your inquiry is about a career or project, you must take the initiative to draw up a proper plan; and if it is about a personal relationship, you must be very clear about your intentions and desires. Boldly begin a discussion about how things really are and how to make the situation work for the highest good of all. Do this as soon as possible. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

You are being called to inspire! Your gifts are much needed at this time, it is time to share your light with the world. You should be proud of how far you have come, and you can use this knowledge to help others to find their way. Do not hold back.

There are aspects of yourself or your past which you may consider shadows. Maybe you have hidden them away from the light out of fear of being judged or made fun of. Maybe there are things you have lived through that have been traumatic, or decisions you made that you are not proud of. Maybe there is something that you long to do but fear rejection or ridicule. Put all those fears aside, you are being called to bring the shadows out into the light and be honest and clear. Shedding light on them will not only take away the power you have given over to them, but it will also pave the way for others to do the same. This also, is the only way to be truly authentic in the world. Honesty is key.

What you have been through, or gone through, is what brought you to where you are, right here and now. You survived it. You are brave and courageous and all the wiser for it, painful as it may have been. How can you help others do the same? How can you share your story?

Be gentle with yourself. This may take a little planning, a little contemplation. It may be so deeply hidden that it will take a while to bring it all out into the Light. But it is safe to do so, if you can stand in your power while you do it. This is about empowerment, not giving your power away.

Believe in yourself and move forward fearlessly. Others will follow.

Namaste

Transparency

Transparency, from the Oracle Of The Mermaids, by Lucy Cavendish

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Transparency, from the Oracle Of The Mermaids, by Lucy Cavendish

Transparency: “Honest, Authentic, Genuine, Present”

The Mermaids Sing: “It is time to be very honest – as honest as you can be. It is hard to do this. Because we tell ourselves so may stories about who we are, and we have covered up so much of ourselves with layers of protection… but now it is the pearl of truth that is needed.

If we have come to you, we are asking you to very simply, and very clearly, tell the truth. About what you feel. About what you want. About what you may not know. If you do not even know how you feel, say so. We are asking, the powers of the waters are asking for you to be there, clearly – to be seen. Let us see you, we say, for there is so much about you, so much that is beautiful and in many ways attractive but we cannot see who you are. It is time to rise from this truth for a time. It is not always an easy thing to be simple, clear and true. But this is what you are learning to do for now. And what we can see, what is beginning to appear before us, is good, and precious, and worth looking at deeply.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “You may be concealing a truth about yourself from others, and you may also be hiding who you truly are. It is not always a simple thing to know how to communicate who you are, and to know what and who you are – but for now, you do know that there is some information others deserve to know. It will be a wonderful thing for you to share with trusted others this truth, and to finally drop the sense of watching who you are, to be sure you do not make a mistake and accidentally reveal who you are. As you become more accustomed to trusting others, trustworthy others will appear. You are ready now to meet and be with people who love and respect you, inclusively of all the challenges and choices you have made for yourself this lifetime. You are worth loving – all of you, the past, the present, and who you are becoming.”

Divination: “There is a truth that must be told. Time to reveal who you are to someone you have been keeping much of yourself hidden from. Time to clarify what it is you mean, what it is you want, and to truly look within and come to an understanding of who you are. In order to do this, it may be necessary to be very still for a little while. So much movement has ruffled the surface and it has not been possible to see clearly. Now, still yourself. See the waters clear… and look deep within. And then share this, with that trusted other – and, most of all, with your own self. Your true nature has been crying out to be heard and your true face has longed to be shown to the world. From this time forth, people will know who you are. Some will say you have changed, but the truth is, you have become who you always were, deep at the very heart of you.”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

Presenting ourselves with absolute honesty and transparency is the next step in our journey. This is yet another way we ascend; by leaving behind the illusions of the three dimensional reality and creating a brand new reality based on pure truth.

The truth should never scare us, yet we spend so much time glossing it over, covering it up completely, or twisting it to suit our needs or the needs of others. Yet how can we build a sacred and solid foundation of Unconditional Love if we are wearing masks? If we cannot find the strength to Be in our truth, letting it shine through us, then what do we have, really?

Tell your truth. It doesn’t have to be brash or callous, it can be genuine and from directly from the heart. It might take some getting used to; for you to speak it and for others to receive it. But with the intention to do so by the Grace of the Universe, for the Highest Good of All, and infused with Love and Light, you simply cannot lose. You will inspire others to speak their truth too.

Drop the act. Step outside the Illusion. Be here now, vulnerable and true. Surrender to your own Light. Share your unique gifts. Stop staying small to please others. Stop fearing judgment and step forward. Hold yourself accountable by standing in your truth. Taking full responsibility for your reality. 

Allow others to be true with you. That can be scary too. That means you have to drop the projections; the expectations; the control. That means you have to stop and pay attention. Listen to what they have to say, from their hearts. And if they cannot offer this honesty and authenticity to you, maybe it is time your paths go off in different directions.

Be the Truth.

Fearlessly

Namaste

The Wise Woman Of Wonderland

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

The Wise Woman Of Wonderland: “Integrity, Compromise”

“The Wise Woman Of Wonderland brings integrity to thought, word, and deed. She lets you know that as long as you are in the flow of honesty and being true to your word, she keeps you under her protection and care.

When she appears as your Ally, she signals a time when honesty pays off, yielding greater dividends than you expected. You will be thankful that you remained faithful and loyal to your path. She reminds you that compromise is not always an option. Stay true to yourself first and foremost. Although it may appear that you could lose something as a result, you can never lose what is truly yours.

When The Wise Woman Of Wonderland appears to you as challenger, this is a sign that you may have compromised yourself out of fear. Have you been in denial about the truth of your situation? Have you sol yourself short rather than ask for what you really need? Have you given up your dream for another because you fear abandonment?

The Wise Woman Of Wonderland is gently reminding you that you count. Claim your good and never settle for less. Be fearless and make it so! Why hang around for more disappointment when wonderful adventures and opportunities are waiting to unfold for you?”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

When we think of putting ourselves first, we think of being selfish. If you are a people pleaser, you may feel very uncomfortable with the idea of putting yourself and your needs first (believe me, I get it!) But this is part of the shifting of our perception. Our own needs and deep desires must be supported for us to be truly happy, joyful, and at peace. We cannot attempt to compromise our own values in order to make someone else happy. It must be a balance.

Of course there are many compromises when we are in relationship, be it family, friendship, business or romantic. We often do need to meet half way; but note that BOTH partners are meeting half way, not one person bending over backwards while the other calls the shots. Not healthy. Yet there is such an imbalance in the world;  in the polarity of the power of the sexes! On saying that, we may find that the male and female can be archetypes and do not necessarily mean that it is an actual man or woman, rather a power imbalance by two people exhibiting the amplified qualities of each.

Where are you compromising your own integrity in your life? Where are you not speaking your truth? What are you afraid of? And why are you stuck in this situation? Can you start to take action in finding a way to put yourself and your needs as a priority in your own life without experiencing guilt or shame?

You deserve to be happy. You are worthy of love. You are being called to your Soul Path, to walk and talk your truth.

And so it is

Namaste

Maui ~ Discovery

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

“Feel eager again for discovery and adventure. Curiosity may help you break barriers and solve problems.”

“Across Polynesia, from New Zealand to Hawaii, we hear stories about the hero Maui. Although the tales differ slightly from island to island and region to region, Maui’s exploits have given man fire, invented the kite, and even fished up whole islands for humans to live on.

Sometimes depicted as slightly disheveled and street smart, Maui manages to outwit his brothers and other opponents in his adventures. Other versions tell of a strong and mighty Maui, able to perform extraordinary heroic feats, but the common traits in most of his stories are his curiosity and urge for discovery.

Maui is the being responsible for introducing fire to man; in fact, he stole it from a bird. Maui and his brothers went fishing in the lagoon and happened to look back at the mountain near the shore. There was a fire burning. Man had not had fire for many generations, as the volcano that supplied the embers had ceased its rumbling. Racing back, Maui found only a wisp of smoke and a family of mud hens stamping the fire out.

every day thereafter, Maui and his brothers checked for fire but saw nothing. However, as they paddled out to fish one day, they saw a fire glowing against the mountain – out of reach again!

Now Maui had a plan. He decided to wait on shore while his brothers went fishing, but no fire appeared. Increasingly frustrated, Maui decided to make a life-sized doll of himself, and his brothers paddled out with it one fine day. this time, Maui would catch the birds at their fire.

Maui climbed up the mountain and found a hen just about to make the fire. Not waiting for her to start, he grabbed her and held her prisoner. Reminding him that if he hurt her, the secret would be lost, the bird convinced Maui to release her in return for the recipe for fire. The old hen taught Maui how to start a fire by rubbing special sticks together. Maui, quite the funny man, said to the mud hen, “come here, there is one more thing to rub!” And he rubbed the feathers on her head so hard that a bald patch appeared. Ever since that day, mud hens have had no feathers on their heads.

Maui’s sense of discovery also extended to creating a fishing hook so powerful that it pulled up whole islands from the ocean (to his utter surprise, mind you), and it is said that he created the islands of Hawaii in that way.

Call on Maui when you are eager for discovery, when you are working on solving a difficult problem and the answer seems far away, or when you need to find a little of the hero within yourself.”

Shadow Side: “Maui is a trickster and often makes his discoveries or gets his prize through stealing or, at the very least, outmaneuvering those in his way. While the end sometimes does justify the means, deceit and deception are not the ideal ways o get what you want. Maui’s appearance raises questions about our levels of authenticity, honesty, and contrivance.

We need to also monitor our levels of anger and frustration – sometimes humor can diffuse a difficult situation in the best possible way.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

It’s time to get adventurous, shake things up a little! We get so stuck in our ruts, our comfort zones, and we are afraid to step out and change things.

What can you do differently today? Have some fun with it! Change up your routine, even if you have to stick to the plan. Wear something sexy and bright; take a different route to work; get a walk in at lunch time; call an old friend and laugh together; take a risk ask that special someone out on a date; pick or purchase some flowers for you or a loved one; surprise someone you love with some chocolate; try a new exercise class; do something you love to do that you have been too busy to do lately. Do something that makes you smile. Do something that makes someone else smile. Stir up the energy and see how it changes your day.

Rediscover your inner child. See each day as an adventure and make sure you stay flexible to accomodate some exciting surprises from the Universe… co-create a way more exciting existence for yourself! You deserve it, and joy, happiness and peace all start with little FUN!

Namaste

Healer Of Action: “This is a time when you can do whatever you set your mind to if your heart is open. You are beings asked to do many things at once. You will not mind as long as you know that you are making a difference. This card indicates someone who is loving, intelligent, passionate, and fun, which could definitely describe you! This person can handle difficult situations with grace.”

Situations: “Parent, spouse, executive, environmentalist, and yoga teacher… that may perfectly match your life, or perhaps you wear different, but equally diverse, hats. The important point is that you can do anything once your heart and mind are engaged. Others are naturally drawn to your beautiful and happy nature. Your life may be challenging, but you are very aware that you are making a difference in the world, and it feels good to you!”

People: “Someone you can trust to be a loving, intelligent, and fun friend. A person with great physical and inner beauty. Handles difficult situations with grace. Consciously takes care of self and others. Stands behind his or her beliefs. Walks his or her talk.”

Additional Meanings Of This Card: “A devoted parent. Wise counsel you should follow. The opportunity to be a leader. Balanced career and home life.”*

~by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

You are settling into your authentic self, are you feeling it? Are you getting more comfortable in this new You? Are you feeling Lighter? More joyful? More aligned to your true Soul Purpose?

Yes there are bound to be bumps along the way, but you have worked hard to get where you are, celebrate it! There may still be some clearing out to do, but as you reach your short term goals, and your confidence in yourself and your abilities improves, you will find that you can easily set your sights higher. There really is no limit on what you can create.

Sometimes you may feel spread too thin, like you have taken too much on. If this is the case, you need to schedule in some time in silence and contemplation. This is mandatory. Gone are the days of proving our worth by never saying no and doing way too much for others. There is no such thing as being selfish for taking a little time out for you to recharge your batteries. Go to a yoga class; go for a walk; have a bath; do something creative; dance, sing, make music; cook; write; breathe; communicate with your Higher Self; take time to dream. This is a new reality. You must nurture yourself in order to flourish.

Send gratitude out into the Universe for all that you have. Send gratitude to the lessons learned. Make time for new, gentler experiences to come through. There is no need for big shoves from the Universe anymore; we are listening, we are Here, Now.

Ask the Universe with reverence, “What miracles do you have for me now that I can receive with gratitude and joy?”

Namaste

Chrysocolla

Published April 21, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Chrysocolla, from the Crystal Oversoul Attunements Oracle Card deck, by Michael Eastwood

Chrysocolla, from the Crystal Oversoul Attunements Oracle Card deck, by Michael Eastwood

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Chrysocolla, from the Crystal Oversoul Attunements Oracle Card deck, by Michael Eastwood

Chrysocolla:”Vulnerability”

“Chakra: Sacral

Element: Water

For a grid: 8 points

“Chrysocolla travels on the blue ray of communication, encouraging deep and heartfelt expression. It supports honesty in feelings and will support release of any tension in the throat chakra. Chrysocolla has a strong presence and asks us to express our vulnerability and sensitivity here on this earth. It puts us in touch with profound feminine qualities in ourselves. When this force is embraced we live connected to a powerful inner source of creativity and beauty and can express it in the world.

Integrating our inner feminine and masculine power will play an increasingly important part in the development of humanity. Ultimately we are on the way to merging these inner male and female qualities where we are more complete in ourselves.

The Oversoul of Chrysocolla attunes us to the feminine side of our consciousness. The mandala of the Oversoul is a vivid turquoise blue, built up from many layers of subtle geometric shapes. The effect is overwhelmingly beautiful.

There are eight beings that reflect the Oversouls consciousness who greet us with such tender expression in their eyes. They invite us to enter, with them by our side, the mandala. Inside we adjust our eyes to the vibrant turquoise light that bathes the interior.

We see ahead a temple complex that looks to our eyes like a temple made of large steps. The beings guide us to climb the steps to the apex. Having arrived on top we are surrounded by the beings that now create a mandala of brilliant light. They start to sing a sound that is familiar to us and recalls another time in human history. The sound starts to make us sway and add our sounds to theirs. The melodies create a force field of turquoise light, penetrating our aura and opening us towards exquisite feelings.

Any tensions we are carrying in our body and especially our throat chakra are released with the light emanating from the beings that penetrates ancient layers of our being. We feel fully connected with our inner feminine energy. Soft nurturing and supportive feelings arise from the depths of our consciousness.

We feel exquisitely vulnerable within our own skin.”*

~ by Michael Eastwood

Chrysocolla will assist you in speaking your truth, which is what you need to do right now in order to move forward. You have been balancing everyone elses needs, leaving no room for your own. You have stuffed your emotions and hidden your true feelings for far too long. It is time to speak up, and get what you need. Even if it is not what everyone else wants to hear. Even if you will encounter some resistance. Even if you fear that you will not be taken seriously. It is time.

This is not about screaming or yelling… although those can be great exercises to get a blocked throat chakra working again, if you can scream and yell somewhere where people cannot be alarmed! Chanting is also a great way to tone the throat chakra, opening it and clearing it of any old, stagnant or dense energies.

What do you need to say that you are not saying? Write it down and read it alone, out loud. Read it until you feel the conviction in your voice. Read it until you believe it.

Then say it. Calmly and clearly and without hesitation.

And set yourself free.

Namaste

Dee
