Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page Of Wands, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Page Of Wands: “With confidence and a childlike joy, she plays her instrument, sending forth her message. The cadences dance in swirling melodies, a song of confidence and assurance. The strident beats mark a quick tempo that is irresistible to any who hear it. She smiles, knowing that she is the center of attention as she draws our all the creatures of the woods. Excitement fills the air, and breathless exuberance.

From ether and the nether-realms,
From sea and skies, come to my side!
I summon all to heed this call:
come flock to me! Come run, swim,
Stride!

Page Of Wands is creative and passionate. She is witty, charismatic, and outspoken with her philosophy. She knows her mind and is direct and forthright when she has an opinion. She may be a teacher, eager to pass on that kernel of knowledge that she possesses. She is the fiery spark of initiative, inventive, and she dares you to delve within and seek out the opportunities that may be frightening but have so much potential. Sometimes the actions that push you to the limits of comfort are the most rewarding. She tells you to do and not sit there with only mute desire. Action is what is important. Can you hear her song ringing in your ears? Can you hear its sweet seduction singing with the voice of impulse?”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Creation, manifestation, passion and incentive are all the messages of today’s card. It is about doing, being, advancing, expanding; there is no procrastination here. It is about quick wits and intuition; following your gut instincts and taking colourful and creative action.

Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras are most important now too: confidence, will power, self-belief, self-worth and self-esteem; sensuality and sexuality are all important factors in our lives now. We have the ability to step fully into our true authentic selves. We have the opportunity to align with our dreams and use our deepest passions to paint the canvas of our reality.

Music, art, poetry, wisdom and self-expression all play a part here. Get your creative juices flowing by doing whatever it is that you love to do. In your own unique way of doing it. Communication, teaching, and clarity of vision are key factors to the manifestation of your reality. Make a vision board, research that trip you are dying to go on and print off the info, pin it to your fridge. Look into taking or teaching a course or class. Sign up for a workshop and learn something new.

And most importantly, create with love and with joy. Create with passion and vitality. Infuse love into every aspect of your creation; always leaving space for more and more.

And so it is

Namaste

Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael, from the Lightworkers Oracle card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael: “Part of your divine purpose is to develop the power of your mind and use it for healing purposes. If you change your mind, you can change your world. Guidance and healing inspiration can come to you daily, helping improve your own life and the lives of others. Healing and opening the mind to new realities and possibilities are the gifts of Ascended Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael.”

“The mind of a lightworker needs spiritual light, information, understanding and wisdom, in the same way that human bodies need food, water and clean air. The hunger for wisdom can push you to seek knowledge, and this can be a healthy impulse. However, if you love knowledge so much that you keep seeking, without taking time to digest, integrate and apply what you have learned, you may end up confused or mentally exhausted. If you are forgetful, stressed, mentally fatigued or plodding when you are usually bright, you need some mental ‘time out’.

The mind rarely rests except through meditation, and even then rest is not guaranteed. Resting the mind can be a tricky thing for intellectually oriented or creative people. Learning to switch off mentally will help you remember and apply what you are learning, so that you grow not only in knowledge, but also in wisdom.

You have been absorbing a lot of new information. You may feel you have so many tasks to do that you don’t know where to start, or that if you stop to rest you will never get through it all. This is causing you mental stress, which is diminishing your productivity. It is time to slow down and cleanse your mind with the assistance of Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael.

Sit without the distraction of a telephone, computer, mobile phone, music, television or radio. Take a few moments of silence. Say the invocation below and then imagine, intend, visualize or feel a fresh, pale green energy wash through you. Focus on this for a second or two, then just relax and enjoy the mental cleansing.

You will recognize when you have had sufficient mental rest, because you shall feel a peaceful sense of vibrancy and inspiration. When you let go in this way, switching off and taking a step back, new approaches and ideas come to your mind, so work according to your own creative rhythms. You may find you work best in short, productive bursts punctuated by mental rest. If this is how you need to live for a time, honour that. Be kind o your mind! It can help you accomplish your divine journey.

This oracle also comes with a message for you. If you are interested in healing that involves the mind, whether this be psychology, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, NLP, philosophy or course of study, you are encouraged to explore it. If you feel inspired to work with your belief systems through affirmations or other techniques for mental programming, such as guided relaxations and meditations, you are encouraged in this too. Your mind is developed and powerful, and you will work well with such techniques.”

Invocation: “I call upon the healing grace of Master Hilarion and Archangel Raphael, who love me unconditionally. May my own mind now gain rest, clearing and refreshment. May I be assisted through unconditional love for mental healing, and the development of my mind in service to my spiritual life purpose. Please help me let go mentally, to allow for positive healing changes to happen. I ask for the grace I need to access all helpful knowledge, understanding and wisdom necessary for me to fulfill my divine purpose. May my mind become peaceful, clear and refreshed. May all beings be free from mental anguish, through the grace and unconditional love of the Divine. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

For lightworkers, life is even more of a polarity. We see so much light, we year for the light to wash over us; to us and through us, healing and helping all those who are in need of it. But yet there is this darkness that we simply cannot ignore. The darkness that causes the chaos, pain and distress. Basically everything going on in the news; the wars, the accidents, the assaults. We live in a world that contains that kind of darkness and yet we always reach for the light. We always have faith that things can get better, that transformation is underway. We see it in the signs, in the messages that we receive. We know it in the very depth of our being.

But it can be exhausting, striving for the Light when the dark is always looming off in the distance. Sometimes that darkness closes in, sometimes it affects someone who we know and love; someone we hold dear. We cannot let the darkness drive out the light this way, by attempting to eat away at our faith. We must learn to always choose the light.

Sometimes we need a break from it all, it all seems to be too much. We are sensitive, delicate, vulnerable to the energies around us. We need a rest, a reprieve. We need to recharge our batteries and rest our weary minds; the minds that take it all in, and get to feel overwhelmed, stressed. We need to take the time to go within and rebalance our energies. Meditation, contemplation, yoga, time in nature all help.

Asking for the assistance of Archangel Raphael also helps; seeing yourself bathed in his emerald green healing light, every cell of your body rejuvenated, revitalized. Asking that the old, dense energies be removed and replaced with bright white love and light. Ask that you are protected.

Be mindful today of where you place your intention, who you spend your time with and how you use your energy. Get outside in the sunshine, breathe some fresh air. Spend some time alone, away from distractions. This is a little break before things pick up again, use it wisely.

Namaste

Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration

Published July 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration, from the Mythic Oracle Card deck, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration, from the Mythic Oracle Card deck, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration

The Myth: “The Titaness Mnemosyne, daughter of Gaia and Uranus, is the personification of memory. She and Zeus are the parents of the nine Muses, who are beings of inspiration. Their existence shows that memory and divinity combine to create true inspiration.”

The Message: “Memories hold all that we know about life and ourselves. Memory is the sacred record keeper of our lives, yet memory and actuality are often different. Actuality is the account of facts, while memory is about how we internalize these facts and how we have experienced our lives, neither being truer than the other.

The divine is the essence of life itself – the universal experience that binds us together – and exists both beyond and within ourselves. It is the consciousness of nature and the cycles of nature; life, death, truth, and love.

When this universal essence blends with your inner realm of interpretation and experience (your personal reality), you receive inspiration. Symbols come to life, sounds open inner doorways, and words become keys to unlocking the otherwise overwhelming experience of life.

If you have drawn this card, then you are being touched by inspiration now. All that you have gathered from your life, as well as all that you feel from life, is awakening in your mind now. New worlds and opportunities are opening up within you.

Make sure you really experience what you are feeling now. The inspiration you receive at this time comes from a divine place and speaks of a truth that is not only personal but also universal. Write down ideas and follow them through into actions. New possibilities are opening to you, and you must grab this feeling by the reins and let it take you to new places. Nurture inspiration in your life; surround yourself with things that bring you to life. Spend time in nature, dance, be creative. Above all, listen to the whispers on the wind, for they are leading you to behold the limits of all you have previously known.”*

~ By Carisa Mellado

The full moon called for a shift in perspective, one of those necessary shifts. One that you can come along nicely with, or one that will drag you kicking and screaming through the finish line. Ya, it’s that important.

Because what is on the other side of this shift is inspiration, pure and sparkling bright. If your pilot light has felt dimly lit lately, it has the potential to sizzle. If you shift that pesky perception, that is…

Memories and feelings and experiences all wrapped into neat little packages and stored in our physical bodies will require a gentle unwrapping and bringing out into the Light. It will require a truce between fact and emotional fiction. An acknowledgment, an embrace, a forgiveness and a great release. What else is possible?

Inspiration, passion, ignition, co-creation. Past lives blending together into one. Karma released. Body, mind and spirit healed, awakened, ascending. Ready.

Namaste

Possum ~ Opportunity

Published July 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Possum ~ Opportunity: “Possum inspires us to see opportunity in any condition and to productively harness all opportunities to our best advantage; to gently ride on the back of any circumstantial generosity afforded us until  we are comfortable established, after which retreat should be executed in an honourable and discreet manner.

To take opportunity by the horns when it is offered is to believe one hundred percent in your total worth and life purpose. To act on every thought and to honour every possibility as potential for growth is what separates successful people from ordinary folk.

Possum urges us to see our life as a foundation on which great things can be initiated. He encourages us to seek out new experiences and attempt new things. Although  the Possum is ideally suited to living in the hollows of trees, the idea of squatting in the roofs of human dwellings poses no moral dilemma for him at all.

If Possum has ambled into your cards today, you are being asked to remember who you are and what agreements you made with yourself before commencing your Earth Walk. What did you want to achieve? Where did you see yourself ultimately?

Pay close attention to the opportunities afforded you at this time, for new ways to develop your abilities and to enhance your growth are on offer right now. Identify and discard all feelings of self-doubt – they simply keep you from furthering your skills and employing your talents to the best of your ability.

Possum’s appearance heralds the chance to better yourself and to take your knowledge deeper. Opportunity knocks for those alert to its presence. So long as you are willing to work hard and apply yourself, it is acceptable to gently ride on the back of any opportunity that is presented to you. The wealth locked within the authentic self is filled with great possibility and all it takes is the courage to access it and birth it into the light of day.

Possum’s appearance in your cards may also mean that you have a freeloader in your midst – someone who is taking advantage of your generosity. The best way to expel a Possum from your roof is to install a sensor-light. Nocturnal by nature, Possums hate bright light, so with lights turning on at the slightest movement they will quickly find an alternate dwelling. Using a similar approach, to illuminate your squatter’s sponging ways, visualize their light turning on (and staying on) whenever they enter their bedroom. They will soon find it impossible to stay as a result.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

Again we are reminded to go within and honour our true authentic Self; our Soul self. What did it come here to do in this lifetime? And most importantly, are you doing it? If not, be aware that an opportunity is coming to you now. This opportunity will put you back on your path. If it seems like it is auspicious and wonderful, you are ready to take things in a new direction, you have done the work and you are ready to move forward. If a challenge arrives, look closely at why this is challenging… where is the silver lining? What are you holding on to that you needed to release but have refused?

Know that when lessons come as challenges it is often because we have not been taking the easy ones! We have either ignored them or been unaware, or we have defied them insisting on staying put where we are. Well, as usual, the Universe… and Your higher self, has other plans!

Possum is not just about opportunity, but he is also an opportunist. He will happily jump out of his comfort zone to get in the flow when an opportunity presents itself. It’s instinct, fast paced decision making on the fly. Trusting your intuition and going for it before the window closes. And this is where the plot twists. If this doesn’t sound like a personal message for you, then it becomes a friendly warning to watch those who are in your life right now. Is someone riding your coat tails? Is someone taking more than they are giving? If so, then it’s time to cut them loose. It’s time for you to take your opportunities without them draining your energy or distracting you from your purpose. Only you will know.

Namaste

Cacoxenite

Published July 1, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this powerful card into your life today to share with you that the blessings of new beginnings are upon you. Life moves in cycles and the one you are currently entering is one of exciting new opportunities. The light of a new dawn and the medicine of Cacoxanite is shining down upon you. As one chapter of your life is coming to an end, it is time to dust yourself off and focus on the here and now.

Work closely with the devas to release any unwanted fears or resistance and trust this is a sacred time of bringing new energy into your life. As you draw upon the medicine of Cacoxanite, know that this is a perfect time for you to start a new project or pursue something that you have been holding off on for the right time. You are being urged to embrace this opportunity fully and allow the first light of dawn to shine upon you, offering blessings of rebirth and rejuvenation in every aspect of your life. Enjoy this new part of your journey – its will bring you an abundance of positive change.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

A perfect message to start a new month! Blessings of new beginnings; opportunities and the light of a new dawn. All of this deeply resonates with me at this time, as we embark upon the second phase of 2017.

So much deep work has been done over the last six months, it really has been a whirlwind. So many energies to assimilate; so many new frequencies… are you accepting and embracing them, or have you felt as if you are fighting them? Surrender is key. Throw your arms wide; your palms out; your heart open. Accept it with grace and ease, gratitude. It has caused some chaos for sure as the polarities stretch farther and farther apart. What will become of us all, this complicated human race?

What we have learned is that we absolutely must take full responsibility for our the creation and manifestation of our own realities. As each individual does so, we can come together to form a new collective consciousness. As we take on more and more light, we form a powerful grid around the planet; one of healing,  of acceptance of unconditional Love. When we understand just how powerful we are, each and every single individual, then we can come together as a whole.

And change everything. Complete and total transformation of a broken system. From the inside out.

Starting with you.

Happy July!

Namaste

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity

Published June 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Stones ~ Creativity, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Three Of Stones ~ Creativity: “A huge trilithon stands amid bushes and rocks. On the left hand pillar there is a great aurochs from the painted caves of France; on the right is an ancient horse known as Przewalski. Standing between the stones, one hand on each, is a Green Woman, from whose feet roots of energy spread out as she draws upon the strength of the stones and the earth.”

Meaning of the Card: “An artist listens to the inner voice and hears the wind song of the universe. The courage, freedom and skill that allow the artist to mediate this energy must be refined and focused for effective and meaningful achievement.”

Reading Points: “The practical manifestation of creative energy requires a clear and open channel to the inspirational forces and impulses of the universe. Allowing this energy to flow through you is a rich and rewarding gift in itself. Just as releasing your dreams and desires into the universal consciousness always brings a response, so the releasing of creative energy invites into the artist the healing and enriching fuel from which further insight and visionary stimulus flows. This emotional and spiritual relationship with divine inspiration allows the subconscious mind to delve deeply and summons the intuitively creative power that actualizes work. Artistic beauty takes many forms and presents itself in a variety of ways, but the relationship with the subconscious formative energy, whether through music, painting, sculpture, or poetry, reminds us of the personal and intimate connection we all should share with the universal consciousness.”*

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

We are so much more than our daily routine, our jobs, our bills and our responsibilities. Yet this is what takes up the majority of our time and energy. We can feel like we are literally drowning in obligation, our time doesn’t feel like our own, there is always something more which could be done. Many of us need permission to take a break, we must ask our bosses or our family if we can just take a day to ourselves; make arrangements to cover our usual tasks or caregiving. It can be draining, exhausting, and definitely a challenge to the flow of our creative juices.

As the card shows us, one of the most powerful ways we can recharge ourselves is by spending time in nature. Just looking at the peaceful expression in the Green Woman’s face captures it all; the vitality and prana energy she is receiving from the natural world. It is time that you got back to nature? Have you been feeling like you are being pulled in too many different directions? Are you in need of some inspiration, does your zest for life need a bit of a boost?

Creativity is as vital to us as any other aspect of our lives, yet it is the first thing to go when are in survival mode. We focus instead on making money, on providing for ourselves and our families and protecting what is ours. We don’t make time to do what we love to do, as it seems like a luxury.

It’s time to get creative, stir up the old energy and manifest something new. Creativity comes in many forms, it can be an artistic outlet, or it can be using your vibrant imagination to draw what you desire to you. It can be a way of expressing yourself in the world that feels right to you; whether it is judged by others or not! However creativity comes to you, it comes from the Divine. When you are drawn to a certain medium, music, expression or activity that gets you in the flow… go with it, it is doing you so much more good than you can even imagine!

If you don’t know where to start, start outside. Get into the forest, go to the beach, spend time in the garden. Breathe in the fresh air and let it revitalize you, body, mind and spirit. Ask for inspiration, ask for creativity to come. And follow the guidance when it comes.

Namaste

The Muses

Published June 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Muses, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Muses, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

The Muses: “Inspiration”

“Allow yourself to be inspired. Find or be your own muse. If you are feeling uninspired, do something you do not normally do. It is time to indulge yourself in music, song, dance, and poetry.”

“The Muses were the very embodiment of an enjoyable and cultured life in ancient Greece. In a time when entertainment revolved around the spoken word through traditions of poetry and theater, the Mousa (goddesses of song) were an integral part of life.

Early descriptions of the Muses hold their number at three. They were Melete (practice) Mneme (memory), and Aoide (song). Later that number increased to three times three, nine. The nine muses included Calliope (writing poetry), Clio (writing history), and Thalia (comedy). The Muses appear in various myths, and many shrines were dedicated to them. The shrines at Delphi and Parnassas were sacred to them and the god Apollo, their patron.

Today the term muse often applies to any person, but particularly a woman, who inspires an artistic endeavor. Fashion designers often choose living muses to inspire their collections. Musicians still write songs dedicated to those who inspire them, whether it is through love or a breakup. Actors still invoke the Muses, and the ancient symbol of the actors’ masks is associated with the Muses.

Allow the Muses to sing themselves into your life and inspire you to do better. Muses are not just for creative people; they are for anyone who wishes to follow an interest or continually grow toward something worthwhile. We all receive inspiration from someone or something at times, and this enthusiastic energy is that of the Muses. If you need to inspire yourself to work on a big project, expand your horizons, or develop a new skill, the muses will be here.”

Shadow Side: “Obsession is the darker side of muse energy. History is full of descriptions of obsessive love or interest gone wrong, where the magnetism of a muse carries people away. Strong muse energy is always inspiring and provoking; you just have to ensure that it is an inspiration toward something healthy.”

Symbols: “Three women or nine women with scrolls; Musical instruments, particularly harps.”

Invocation: “When you need inspiration, you might like to invoke the Muses to help you.
You should gather three candles, each a different, colour, three flowers; three sticks of incense; a pen; and paper.
Light the candles and say:

‘Muses three,
Come and visit me.’

Light the incense:

Muses three,
Inspire and help me.

Lay the three flowers in front of the candles.

Blessed Mousa,
Open my heart to your power.

Now tell the Muses about your lack of inspiration or what you wish you could achieve. Imagine them dancing around you and offering you ideas, music, songs, and poetry.

Write down any images, feelings, or ideas that come to mind. Have fun!

Thank the Muses and leave the candles burning safely for a while before blowing them out. Play some inspiring, happy, music.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Do you need at add a little fuel to the fire? Are things feeling a bit bogged down or are you feeling stuck, like you should be making more progress than you are currently? Well, in step the Muses to bless you with some inspiration to kindle your passion and vitality. This is truly a gift.

Rather than getting caught up in all the details, let yourself get swept away in the feelings that success will bring. Take some time to visualize the end result in full detail. Know that when you get where you want to be, you will be happier and more peaceful than you have ever felt. Can you imagine that feeling?

When we are feeling stuck, it’s a good idea to stir up the energy, switch things up a bit! Do something you don’t normally do, get out of your comfort zone. Get out of the house! Meet new people! Move your body. Listen to music. Get creative! Express yourself in a brand new way; wear bright colours, change your hair, have some fun with it.

Inspiration is about to hit, allow it to move you forward into something new. This is the momentum you need right now, the timing is perfect.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
