In The World, Not Of The World: “It is safe for you to become naked with life. This doesn’t necessarily mean stripping off and running wild in public. It does mean stripping back your beliefs, strongholds and mental or emotional security blankets so that you can live with less obstruction than ever before. Imagine the conditioning that has kept life away from you, just kept it dropping out of your hands like keys, coins or clocks. Conditioned beliefs about money, time, security, having, locking away, holding and controlling can be surrendered and allowed to fall away. What would it be like to feel like to feel as though you are on holiday every day? Perhaps there would be a softening in your way with life, an implicit trust in its flow and a faith in the ability of time to bend and stretch as needed so that all may be accomplished. It is at an advanced stage of our spiritual relationship with life that we are able to feel held within it sufficiently enough to surrender our defences, layer by layer and to nakedly accept what is.
This oracle comes as a message to you. Sometimes we need our defences. At other times, it is clear we are outgrowing them. There is something that you have outgrown. It has to do with our ideas about productivity, time, control and money. It has to do with abundance, trust and living with the fundamental belief that everything is going to turn out ok. You are ready to be much more vulnerable and exposed in life. You don’t have to hide behind being organized, perfect, in control or financially secure and stable. Nor do you need any other ‘acceptable’ social face. It is time for you to loosen the strings or your own controlling nature. They are too tight and too restrictive for you anyway. You were born to live in a much freer way. When you live as you innately are, rather than how you have been conditioned to be, you will experience greater joy, freedom and support. When you are not resisting yourself or resisting life, there is less resisting what you need as it comes to you.
If you have also drawn the oracle of Faith in the process, this is a particularly strong message for you. The message is that you are shedding. It might be an identity, it might be a status symbol such as a car, home or suburb and it could even be a socially admired relationship. You are shedding because no matter what the appearance of things, those old forms were too constricting for you. It is almost like your spirit was trying to walk about in shoes several sizes too small – they were starting to pinch, the seams were ripping and eventually they would fall apart completely.
Likewise, you are being stripped of internal beliefs that are failing you, perhaps externally as well. Whether this seems to be your choice or not, make not mistake, it is your own spirit in cahoots with the loving spirit of life that has brought this situation about.
So, you are being guided to trust. If you have also drawn the oracle of Trust Yourself, then you are not only being guided to rely on life, but also on your own inner knowing because at some level, you get it. You understand and know that this is all freeing you. After letting go, there comes a temporary emptiness that provides a greater space for fulfillment to come forth.”
Healing Process: “Imagine you are running naked into a sea, ocean, river or waterfall. Be cleansed. Feel it happening. Be with it and enjoy the sensation of it. Feel freed of any weight that you no longer need, be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Let go on all levels.
When you are ready, just open your eyes and rest for a few moments before going back into your day or evening. You have completed your healing process.”*

See your limiting belief systems and baggage that you carry around everywhere with you. Instead of protecting you from being hurt, rejected, judged or abandoned, they are becoming heavy and so very awkward.. so hard to carry. You have been carrying them for so long you don’t realize how they are holding you back. You don’t realize how much energy they draw away from you, sucking away your passion, vitality and inspiration for life.
It’s time to put them down. Release them to be transmuted into freedom and possibility. Release them from your physical body where they have taken up residence in the form of aches, pains or dis-ease. Release them from your mind; see them for what they are and refuse to allow them to take up valuable real estate in your head. Know that they weight down your spirit, keeping your soul at a mere whisper. Release them and set your soul free.
Then and only then can you really be you. Then you can reinvent yourself and do what you came here to do. And then, you can create what you desire to create. With nothing standing in your way.
Imagine the possibilities of life without drama and limitation.
