Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Hawk ~ Focus: “Choose Your Priorities; and eliminate all distractions.”

“Look at all the choices before you, and select one to which you are willing to give your passionate attention. Once you decide, the right action to take becomes immediately apparent, and Life supports you and provides what you need. You can then arrange all your priorities around that which you have chosen. Set personal boundaries and practice self-care when and where needed. If you do not do this, you can easily get overwhelmed and fragmented, and your power will become scattered and diffused.

Let go of all those habitual diversions that you have made so important. It is time to go to work on the priority you chose and let it flow. The practice of staying focused is in itself a mediation, and this is how you can best express the gifts of service you have to offer to the world and to your Creator.

Additional Associations:

Messenger; Perspective; Detachment; Swiftness.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Do you know what you want? Can you list it in full dynamic detail? Or do you feel more comfortable listing the things that you don’t want? When thinking about what you want, are you able to separate out just you and your dreams and desires? Or do you get wrapped up in what other people want for you, or how your wants would affect them?

What about judgement? Are you concerned with what people might think of your choices, is that a factor in painting the perfect picture of your reality? Can you free yourself from the drama, the worry and the expectations, soar above it all and gain a different perspective?

What if you took all the distractions away and focused solely on what you would love to create for your own life. Letting go of worries, judgement and fear. Letting go of how it would affect those who have expectations of you. Letting your imagination run wild…. What would that look like? How would it feel?

Now, can you hone it down into several focused goals? Can you select a few action steps to get you going in the right direction, even if they are tiny to start? Can you alter your perception of your current reality to allow space for the new one to integrate?

Can you commit to have the courage to breathe it into existence?

Decide right now, to take one step each day towards your dreams, no matter what. Be courageous; be direct and most importantly, be authentic to you. Own this new reality, as you let these dreams fly free from your Heart and Soul. They are your lifeline, your bridge to fulfilling your Soul’s purpose.

Happiness is found in the here and now. When you are focusing on your dreams, you are manifesting what you want to create. Do it with a smile. Do it with joy and enthusiasm and a light heart. For in doing so, you root yourself in this joy and create a magnet for more. You also acknowledge that joy can be found in the now, and is not something that must be chased after… residing in the future.

What are you focused on creating?

Namaste

Ngetal Reed

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ngetal Reed, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Ngetal Reed:
“Northern Hemisphere Dates: September 5th – October 2nd
(Southern Hemisphere Dates: March 5th – April 2)
Totems: Owl, Pike
Deities/Guides: Goddesses of the Hunt, like Athena and Artemis, and the Crone Aspect of the Goddess, like Hecate and Lilith
Letter: NG
Class: Shrub
12th Lunation
Celebration: Autumn Equinox, September 20/21 (March 20/21)”

Keywords: “Direct action, movement, focus, intention, conviction, on purpose, progress, skill, becoming a hollow reed.”

The Ngetal Reed initiates in the twelfth lunation of the year and the autumnal equinox, also known as Mabon and Alban Elved. We celebrate the harvest, now. Thus, we honour completions and also prepare for the coming of winter. This portal calls for direct action towards the month in which we can set and deliver our last intentions for the year’s ending. The double helix of our DNA is a symbol for this portal. Reed includes grasses, bamboo, cattails, and other plants with long, hollow shoots. The ogham for Reed is Ngetal and the letter NG.”

Ngetal Reed in a Reading: “When you get Reed in a reading, it is time to focus on a desired outcome and take action. If you are looking for a job, make calls and set up appointments. If you are working on a project, set up your itinerary and get busy. Today is the day.

Set your intentions and back them up with daily affirmations. Ask your community for help and seek out those who will support you. Call upon those who are in a position to lend you a hand up. It is time for strong, determined action. Go for the bullseye. Use your energy to make your dreams come true.

This card also asks you to either reset your intentions and goals to make them more current – or more realistic – or to re-energize them. Take stock. Write down ways you can implement your dreams. It is time to take concrete action towards your goals. Even small steps can make a big difference. This is a great time to seek out a friend who can act as support and a witness, help you launch your ideas into reality.”

As Challenger: “Perhaps you are avoiding taking responsibility for your situation. You cannot win, now, by simply biding your time. Don’t let life pass you by: get busy and get going. Perhaps you are too sedentary. If so, get off the couch and start walking. Tidy up. Use your energy in a positive way. Begin to move, little by little, baby step by baby step. You have some work to do before you can reach your goals and inspirations. You need more practice and skill and knowledge.

Ask for the energy of Reed if you are stuck or blocked. Imagine that you are the archer – take your bow and arrow, and with great skill and purpose, shoot the arrow to your bullseye. Allow the intention of your focus to carry you forward. Ask spirit for help. Set your intention to be a hollow reed for spirit to work through you as you focus on your intention.”

Message: “I represent action. No more apathy, please. Align with spirit and ask for direction. Align with the power of the owl or the pike. They know how to hunt and stalk. What do you want? It is time to go for it. Stick to your resolve. Set your intention and take steps toward outcomes. I ask you to take yourself seriously. Believe in yourself. I send you courage and fortitude and the belief in a positive outcome, no matter what. You are here for a purpose: to fulfill your own choices. So so with creativity and a spirit of fun.”*

~ By Sherlyn Hidalgo

As the time of the autumn equinox or harvest closes we are asked to take action on creating our dreams. This is a time of forward momentum. We must close out the year successfully, there is no room for stagnancy here. If you feel that you are stuck in a rut, it is up to you to change up the energy.

Find a way to do things differently; take a day off to go somewhere you have never been. Take a class or workshop, meet new people. Do some research on a desired vacation. Check into new job openings. Do something different than what you would normally do!

Revisit goal setting, particularly goals that you want to have achieved by the end of the year. Look at the bigger picture, what do you wish to create? How can you take action right now in order to get closer to your goals? Write it down. Get really clear. Set an intention for short and longer term. Do not let past failures get in the way of your future success.

You are the archer, this always resonates with me as a Sagittarius. See yourself aiming your arrow with absolute focus and concentration. Know that you are completely responsible for creating your dreams.

Namaste

Exceeding Expectations

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Exceeding Expectations, from the Gateway Oracle Card deck, by Denise Linn

Exceeding Expectations: “I soar into excellence.”

Card Meaning: “This is the time to dream big and stretch yourself. Exceed your own expectations… and definitely exceed the expectations that others have of you. Envisage that in the days ahead, you will be stepping beyond what others anticipate for you, and so it shall be.

The Universe Wants You To Know: You may have been playing small, but now is your chance to dream big. Expect miracles. Believe that the best will occur for you, and it will. Make plans – BIG plans – for the future. Do not act as if you are inadequate in order to make others feel secure. In the months ahead, you will be exceeding inner and outer expectations. Get ready to fly!

Questions To Ask Yourself: Have I been playing small so that others would not feel insecure? Am I ready to exceed my own expectations? What are my true expectations in my life, and am I satisfied with them?”*

– Denise Linn

This is quite a ride we are on! We are being called to action yet again, and it’s mind over matter!

I would add these additional questions to the ones above: What do you wish to create? What are your expectations for your future? Who, including yourself, hinders your progress with their expectations, and how can you let all these expectations go? What would happen if there were NO expectations holding you back from your dreams? What if that which you focused on took on a life of it’s own? What if it always had? What if you took full responsibility for every aspect of this life you have manifested, knowing that you could alter or change it at any time through the choices you make every day?

Step out of the box of expectations that you have been living in to date; it may have been created at your birth, added to throughout your life. See yourself busting out of it, Kung Fu style! It’s time to rewrite your story. Who are you really? What are your abilities, your strengths and gifts and talents? They are your tools and the keys to your life path. Know that they cannot and will not lead you astray. You have been blessed with them for a reason. If you are not sure of your direction, ask for Divine Guidance, and set the expectation to see evidence, starting today… right now… of your own unique capabilities and strength.

We have the green light to go forth and follow our dreams, creating our reality. But first we must expand them to epic proportions. Blow the dust off our imaginations and use them to create a vision of our reality so vivid and amazing it surpasses any previous desires. See your future as a blank canvas, your paintbrush is your intention and your medium is an unlimited resource of extraordinary colour and light.

Let your Soul lead the way.

Namaste

Aine ~ Leap Of Faith

Aine, Leap Of Faith

Aine, Leap Of Faith, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Aine

Aine ~ Leap of Faith: “Take a risk, and put your heart’s true desire into action!”

Message from Aine: “Procrastinating about your dreams will not make them go away. Neither will it make them happen. Indecision is the death of the soul’s burning passion to improve, grow, and learn. Do not worry about making the wrong decision. Instead, worry about making no decision at all! Then take time to pray, meditate, investigate, research, go on nature walks… and make your decision.

“Once made, the Universal energies will immediately support your decision, and doors will successively open as if by magic. The magic, you see, is that you have set your mind to accomplish something. And this intention is what sets you on your magical journey. Trust that the Universe will support you in all ways. Trust that your intention is clear and right for you. And then take a leap of faith and jump fully and squarely into the midst of putting your dreams into action. Do not hesitate or delay a moment longer!”

Various Meanings For This Card: Your dream will come true. Your chosen path is the right one for you. Heaven supports you fully on your mission. Your material needs will be taken care of. Take action steps toward the realization of your dreams. Break your dream into achievable baby steps so that it is easier to start and keep going,

About Aine (pronounced AWN-ya): Aine is a powerful Celtic goddess and fairy queen who gave birth to incarnated fairies from her romances with mortal men. Aine is revered in Ireland for helping to grow crops and oversee animals. You can call upon Aine when you need additional guidance and the courage to take risks.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Jump! This is your chance to put all of your faith in yourself, your dreams, and your Divine Guidance. The Universe will meet you where you are; so where are you? Are you paralyzed by indecision? Or are you full speed ahead in pursuing your passions, dreaming bigger than you have ever dreamed before? Have you been weighing your options for longer than may be necessary? What has been holding you back?

First make a list of your dreams, desires and goals, both short term and long term. Fill them out with as much vivid and descriptive detail as you like to really bring them to life. Next write a list of reasons why you think that you shouldn’t or haven’t yet started to pursue these dreams. It could be lack of funding, it could be fear of failure, judgement or success; there is no right or wrong here, lead with your heart. This exercise is to put things into perspective.

When you have your list, look closely at the things that have been holding you back and ask yourself if they are really as powerful as they seem. Are they worth giving your dreams up for, or could you see them as mere obstacles that can be managed. Know that once you have made the decision to conquer anything in your path; you will indeed be given the tools to do so! Ask Aine for some extra help in providing the tools you need for success.

Your Angels are cheering you on!

Namaste

Eruption Of Light

Eruption Of Light

Eruption Of Light, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eruption Of Light, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

Eruption Of Light: “Your every prayer is a power-packed eruption of light beamed into the Divine presence. Some pray with fear or doubt, as though the prayer is not doing much at all. Yet you understand that prayer is powerful, that it is divine action set in motion. Your power of divine prayer emerges from your heart and out through your throat, whether you speak or sing your prayer silently within your own mind, or aloud for all the world to hear. Let your prayers be vocalized as feeling expressed to the Divine, in words or song, if you choose. You have the power to heal at your fingertips and vocal cords! Through your voice, you can heal. Let your hands be joined in prayer position at your heart and your mouth open to let the breath of your spirit move through your throat, creating sound. As you speak it, so shall it be.

This oracle holds a message for you – your words have more power than you may realize and you have a special ability to heal with worlds, to bring light where it is needed and to uplift through simple kindness spoken. You also have a message to bring – it might be an urge to write or speak on topics that are close to your heart. You may also simply have the need at a soul level to share from the heart with others when you are engaged in conversations. The oracle says your voice is part of your power – do use it.

Life begins with love

To complete itself again

Symmetry is born.”*

~by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

Emotion is the secret ingredient to prayer. Pure of heart and intention, honest and loving and full of faith. Heart and mind and arms thrown wide open to embrace; to receive. Don’t slow them down with fear and doubt, but send them out like cupids arrows, divinely focused and bursting with love. Know that you are a powerful creative force, that you too can answer your prayers, that you can heal, that you can create love and light beyond what you can presently conceive. The Universe works with you to create, you are co-creator of peace, abundance and love.

Pray with positive intention, seeing the world as you desire it to be, do not focus on what is dragging you down. Pray for wholeness and health instead of fighting illness. Pray for prosperity instead of paying off debts. Pray for peace instead of revenge or even justice. But most importantly, pray for love. Pray for Unconditional love, the highest Christ Consciousness love, the pure Divine light and love of which we are a spark of. Pray for our beautiful planet and every life form on it to be surrounded with love.

Talk about love, think about  love, pray for love, sing out love, breathe in and breath out love.

I AM Love.

Namaste

Goddess Durga and Hematite

Published February 28, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Goddess Durga and Hematite, from the Crystal Mandala Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jane Marin

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goddess Durga and Hematite, from the Crystal Mandala Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jane Marin

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.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

Emotional Balance

Published November 22, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Emotional Balance, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Emotional Balance, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Emotional Balance: “Stability ~ Harmony ~ Peace ~ Fluidity”

“When your own cup is full and balanced, you will naturally have more to give and share with others.”

Card Story: “Rays of morning sun meet the mists of a new moon as a spectrum of full, balanced colour pours into a golden chalice. Water rises steadily, radiating a soft glow from all sides. Soon it will naturally overflow, feeding life within the wide open field around it. There is calm and peace here, and this cup pulses with pure potential – the essence of a life fully lived within the chalice of Emotional Balance.”

Card Message: “Our emotions are the creative engine of our experience. They are like the fiery steed that pulls the chariot of our life. If we want to know what we are creating or why things are showing up in our life the way they are, we must look first to the thoughts and feelings we generate on a daily basis.

There is an ancient saying that says, ‘Energy flows where our attention goes.’ Where we turn our focus, emotions build and experience follows. It is time to consider this wisdom in the emotional balance of your life.

Taking time to ‘fill our cup’ on the inside creates a powerful, balanced foundation for all of our actions in the world. Likewise, when we bring out attention to creating order, peace and balance in our external lives, this also facilitates harmony within. From this stable and balanced place we find ourselves more equipped to respond to life’s experiences and the emotions arising from them.

See your emotions as a natural river, cleansing, filling and flowing onward from your cup of life. Acknowledge and express your feelings. Do not let your feelings overwhelm you, but do not ignore them either. Do not allow them to build up inside to the point of bursting. Give yourself space to feel, express and integrate the energy of your emotions as they flow through you.

It is time to focus on cultivating emotional balance within. Everything else in life will fall harmoniously into place as a result.”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

Our feelings are the fuel that ignite our intentions, bringing them to life. It is the secret to full creative manifestation and co-creation. You quite literally get what you feel. You can want and desire. You can hope and you can dream. But if you feel like none of it is ever going to happen, then you won’t get what you are wishing for, you will get what you feel will happen. Or, at the very least, you will create a big block so that what you desire can’t find its way to you.

If you want the dream job, or the dream relationship or whatever it may be,  you have to feel like it’s possible. You need to know it with conviction that somehow it is going to happen. You can’t feel like everyone else gets it and you don’t. Or that everyone else deserves it and you don’t. You can’t worry about how it’s going to happen, or focus on why it isn’t happening. You just have to decide it will happen and get excited about that. And then get on with your life, knowing that everything will work out in perfect divine order.

If this is a stretch for you, as it is for many who have fallen into the habit of worrying, doubting, comparing themselves to others or feeling that things never go your way, use affirmations to trick your brain into feeling differently. Take your unique situation and make the best affirmation you can possibly make and use it as your magical elixer. Write it down. Say it out loud. Repeat it in your head whenever the doubting ego starts to kick in. Be mindful of your thoughts and feelings. Learn to focus on what you want and let the rest fall away.

Balance your emotions and use their powerful energy to your advantage, they are your biggest tools to build the reality you desire… that one that lies just beyond your wildest dreams.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
