Laiste, Moon’s Daughter

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Laiste, Moon’s Daughter, from the Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Laiste, Moon’s Daughter: “Light cast in shadows, Spiritual guidance, Illumination, Riddles”

“She is the bringer of light in the darkness, yet moonlight both reveals and conceals. Her bright faery hoof prints light the path ahead of you, guiding you through the dark. She is also one of the guides at the passages between the otherworlds and this one. It is she who, with her bright light, tends the Gate of Revelation, showing us the way through by illumination, while her sister, Epona’s Wild Daughter helps guide us through the Gate of Despair. Laiste’s gate is much more fun.

Yet, in the process of guiding us, Laiste may pull a veil of cloud across the face of her mother, the moon – and three steps later we fall into a bog. “That should wake you up,” she thinks, smiling wisely. She disapproves of sleep walking, which is something that most of us humans do a great deal of the time. The night contains too much magic and beauty and wisdom to walk through it unseeing. You may find her activities helpful, you may find them frustrating. How you take them is entirely up to you, but they are intended to help you awaken. Bear in mind that she does not trip us; she merely places an obstacle or a pitfall lin our path, and we, sleep walking and unaware, step right into it. We do not have to do that. As always, it is our choice.

Lasite wants us to be open to the great unknown, to mystical (not necessarily magical) experience that teach us an expanded way to relate to the multiverse, all of the worlds and dimensions together. She is daughter of the moon, but she is also an illumined child of Unity. Where the Losgunna, the Frog Queen, wishes you to get in touch with your subconscious and find the treasures there, Laiste hopes that you will reach for your higher self, your not-yet-realized cosmic wisdom. You know far more than you know you know.

There are places in ourselves that we may have feared because they are shadowed and unknown. We may imagine them full of monsters when, in fact, they are inhabited by joyful spirits. She wishes us to explore this terra incognita because that is where much of our potential and as yet unexplored wisdom lies. Laiste reaches into our deepest minds, opening long shut doors, illuminating and revealing the uncultivated ground of our being – our hidden senses and talents. She speaks to us in the language of symbols, as faeries often do, because words are so limited. Any one symbol may speak to us on many levels of consciousness and about many different aspects of being, if we spend time contemplating it. Laiste is a sphinx, and finding the answers to her profound riddles gives us keys to the multiverse.

If you are attending to your dreams and visions and studying every day occurrences, trying to discover the deeper levels of meaning in the symbols there, you are learning the language of Laiste. That language is spoken by artists, like Brian, and poets, whose works are informed by rich symbolism. Discovering it through study, through looking within ourselves, and through interaction with faeries not only teaches us the language of Faery, of art, and of high poetry, but is also gives us keys to our own psychic abilities and to the deep levels of our own psyches, where the Singers and the creative force of Unity are most easily found.

Through revelation and the ecstatic experience of the mystic, Lasite faces and leads us into the future. She prefers to let the old stuff of the past fade away in the illumination of insight and newly accessed wisdom.

You may be finding apparently random events and ideas are falling into a pattern and beginning to make sense to you. Things may be flowing more easily than you are accustomed to, and your decisions and choices may be bringing an unusually high degree of success. Psychic abilities hunches, intuitions, foreknowings- are becoming clearer and making more sense. Trust the process.

Laiste also brings the psychic dreams, forelighting the future and illumining the present. These dreams often speak in symbols, as faeries are wont to do.”*

When the realm of Faery steps into the forefront of our lives, we are reminded to expect the unexpected! Faeries take their jobs seriously, but as they do so, they love to have a bit of fun while they are at it. They love to shake things up, and make us see things from a different angle; and they love to do it in a way that we simply cannot ignore! Obstacles or challenges may actually be doors to new opportunity as we are re-routed through interesting and amazing circumstances!

The moon is full in Cancer and as the year comes to a close we may be feeling like we are riding an emotional roller coaster. There may be some final clearing that needs to be done, and if you have been refusing to release some old pain or trauma, it may come up to force you to do just that. Cancer is one of the most emotional signs and their waters run very deep. Instead of allowing the fear to come up, decide to meet it face on and find a way to let it go. Remember, you can only move forward when you let go of all that weighs you down. It is time to make the space for something new.

It would be ideal to spend a little time in quiet contemplation today, even just a few minutes to catch your breath. There may be someone who you need to avoid until the full moon energies stabilize and integrate as you do not want to get sucked into their drama and toxicity. Give yourself permission to say no, to take a break or a breather, to not answer the phone call or the email today. Give yourself permission to allow more magic into your life.

If possible get outside and leave a little gift under the full moon for the Faery realm; a little crystal or trinket, a colourful feather or treat. Accept their guidance and assistance, allowing them to lead us into a more expanded version of ourselves.

And of course, if we are dealing with Faery energy, you are probably going to want to buckle up!

The Singer Of Connection

The Singer Of Connection, from The Faerie's Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Connection, from The Faerie’s Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Singer Of Connection, from The Faerie’s Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Connection: “Spiritual connection, Karma, Balance, Empathy”

“This Singer supports all connections, the web of light between all beings, all particles, and between past, present, and future. It brings wholeness to apparent duality and combines all energies, uniting all that was, is, or could be. When we lose awareness of this connection in our lives, we feel isolated, lonely, bereft. Yet the energy is there. We only need to be open to it.

There are emotions that help us open up  – love, compassion, trust, and so on. There are other emotions that we tend to close down around unless we make a special effort to keep our hearts open. As you can probably guess, these emotions are feelings such as jealousy, anger, fear, grief, and others of a similarly painful nature. Yet, sometimes, these very emotions, when carried to an extreme, cause us to break down and then break through to the song of Ekstasis. This is a risky way to go as well as an extremely difficult one, because more often the breakdown just stays broken for a long time and then we retreat back to a more crippled version of our original selves.

A far better way to become ever more aware of our essentially holistic nature is to work at keeping our hearts open, seeing relationships, being earthed and centered and connected. In a meditation, someone (and I suspect it was this Singer) asked me to let go of all of my defenses. I argued that surely we needed defenses in this world in order to survive. I was firmly but lovingly told, “It is only by letting go of all your defenses that you become invulnerable.”

That gave me such a strong shock of recognizing the rightness of it that I couldn’t even breathe for a moment. But then, still reluctant (because it sounded like a big job), I muttered that I didn’t think I knew how to do that or even what all my defenses were. I was assured kindly that I would receive help if I asked for it. And I know that you will be given the same aid, too.

Starter Reading: “Through the power of this Singer, all connections are made, held and released, as appropriate. In a reading, this Singer indicates the connection of things, especially reconnecting those that have been sundered. It is unifying and reunifying. It tells us that we need to be aware of the connections between different aspects of the issues under discussion, as well as the connections between the people linked by it. We also may need to build more connections, a network of mutual support.

The presence of  The Singer Of Connection in a reading indicates support and strength flowing through the connections between those involved.”*

~ By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Can you feel your deep connection to everything in existence? Can you see the Light that shines in others, shining from your own eyes in the mirror? This profound connection is the magic of the Universe. It is what weaves us all together. It is what allows us to feel on a deeper level, and what leads to the mass or group consciousness during this ascension.

Open your heart to everything in existence. The birds, and animals and plants and flowers. The insects and trees and creatures of the sea. What do you feel when you focus your energy and intention on another being? Can you feel the warmth and Love that exists within them, even if they themselves cannot feel it (yet)?

This is not vulnerability, this is expansion of awareness. It is allowing ourselves to be a part of the All. It is bypassing the ego’s need to keep us isolated in the name of  “safety” when what we desire most is the connection. Connection is healing, it is alignment. It is Faith. Trust in the thread of Love that weaves us. Trust in the existence of Light within all (Yes, even him!). There are no exceptions, only one’s who live in the state of isolation.

Open hearts and open minds lead to the connection. It is safe to feel. To be a part of it. It is a vital stage of the raising of our consciousness. Allow it to be.

Allow yourself to fearlessly connect through the Light of your Heart.

Namaste

Spirit Dancer

Published November 5, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Spirit Dancer, from The Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Spirit Dancer, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit Dancer, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Spirit Dancer: “Self-Expression, Freedom, Exploration”

“The Spirit Dancer understands both sides of self-expression. In the first stage we get our inner vision, feelings, and creative impulse out into the world through our art, whatever that is. Then our expressions are reflected back to us from the mirror of other people’s perceptions, and we discover what our art awakens in them.

First and most important for many of us, we learn, grow, and lead more satisfying lives if we have ways of expressing our inner world. Such expressions can be a way of helping ourselves better understand our feelings and experiences. Or they can be a way of getting pain out where we can look at it and let it begin to heal. Creative expression is a method of exploring our own truth, bringing it into the light so we can see it more clearly , and maintaining sanity. The key words here are explore, experiment, and express. As this faery cryptically remarked to one Oracle reader, “The Death of Spirit Dancer is Perfection.”

Second, creative expression is a way of sharing and letting others see more of our true selves. It is a way that we can reach out from this illusion of separation and reaffirm our essential connections with one another. When we share a dance, a painting, or a poem with others, we do so with the hope that they will see something of what we have put into it and that their experience will echo ours in some way. But if we have done well, we will be able to add something to their experience. At the same time, we understand that their slant on things is a bit different and that what they reflect back to us by their response will perhaps contain something we have not seen about our own experience – a new insight, a different view, an expansion of our picture of reality. So this side of creative expression, the sharing part, enriches us in a different way than the actual creation. I have never written a poem or sculpted something without the experience changing me – and then changing me again when I shared it with others. This is something I have heard many others say, including many who do not consider themselves “real artists” or “real writers.”

Spirit Dancer encourages us to take creative action from our place of personal power, the inner core of true feelings and understanding within us. She wants us to clarify our vision, find the creative potential that lies hidden in paradox, confusion, and chaos, and turn these into a free-flowing, finely balanced, evolving order. She wants to aid us in making our best fantasies real.

She also is very enthusiastic about helping us to learn to dance well with the faeries, if we do not already know how. And if we do know how, she would still be delighted to dance with us just for the fun of it.  Step out boldly!”

Starter Reading: “Now is the time to focus and really concentrate on a project or process, especially one involving the creative arts. Spontaneity balanced by self-discipline will  help us to achieve our goals. Strive for elegance and simplicity. This is a time to bring out and share qualities that we have nurtured in private.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Self-absorbed and obsessed, the reversed Spirit Dancer has become entangled in her own unexpressed and perhaps inexpressible fantasies. She feels angry and driven, and may be unable to express her feelings in any way except through destruction. Alternatively, this card may speak of the artist’s block. The cure for that is to just create. Even if the creation falls far short of our goals, even if it is trite, just do it. It is a matter of priming the pump until the waters of creativity, emotion, and inspiration flow freely.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

With freedom comes a lightness of being, if you allow it. If you allow yourself to fully embrace the freedom that is offered to you now. Can you receive this precious gift? Can you see how things have shifted and changed? Can you feel how you are now fully in control, fully responsible for creating your new reality? You have the gift of renewal, rebirth and re-creation of yourself. Where will you start? Ten days left until Venus turns direct. We are setting the stage for our creations. We have been moving over these last few days out of the darkness and into the light. It is like the dawn coming after a cold dark night.

What can you change today to let yourself know that this new phase of your life is real and that this new way of being is permanent? Can you declutter, clean and clear your home and office clearing the air and making space? Can you let your creative juices flow and make something wonderfully artistic? Can you get out of your comfort one and wear something bold? Change your appearance up?

Artistic self expression is a wonderful way to let those around you see the true you.  Whatever you choose, do what feels right for you; your true authentic self. Show everyone how you want to present yourself to the world.

We cannot experience true joy when we are living by old belief systems, worrying what others will think, or trying to please people. We must step out and put ourselves first. With big open hearts, and open minds. Love all those unique aspects of you, and share them with the world. Doing so will inspire others to join you.

Find your grace, your harmony, your inner peace… and balance it with deep passion, vitality and zest for life. This is the recipe for reinventing yourself and your world. And you have everything you need to get to work and do it!

Dance out of the darkness and into the Light.

Namaste

The Singer Of Courage

Published October 16, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries' Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries’ Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries’ Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Singer Of Courage: “Bravery, Sublimation of Fear, Moral Strength”

“Someone once said that courage is not the absence of fear but that which enables us to experience fear and not be stopped by it. It is also what enables us to do what we believe to be right even when there is pressure from others around us to do otherwise. It is what enables us to go ahead into the unknown or the perilous, where there are no guarantees of safety or security.

In our lives we are often, even constantly, confronted with a new world, a new way of being in the world, a new way of seeing and of being seen. Ordinary living takes courage, and to rise above the ordinary into the extraordinary takes even more courage. One of the keys to courage is to consider the fear and find a way to let the energy of the fear itself power the action. That is true courage.

Often people think of courage as being part of  high heroism. It is, but it also has its quiet, hidden side as well – and that may require greater courage because we cannot expect the rewards of praise and approval for it. For example, no courage is needed to be unhappy and self-pitying. We do not need to be self-disciplined or wise for that. However, to open our hearts to the risks and vulnerability of joy and trust requires all of those things, especially courage.

Within each of us, there is the terrified inner mouse, and there is the brave inner heart. Either part of us can take over from the other. We get to choose which is in charge. The mouse is a magician with only one trick. It can cast an illusion that it is as big as an elephant. Then fear nearly overwhelms us – but we still have choice. Learning to live with and manage the reactive animal within involves transforming emotions like rage and fear into courage through self-discipline and the help of the Singer of Courage.”

Starter Reading: “Most people have decided by the age of three or four whatever they must do in order to survive. Form this decision, this belief about how the world is, most of our fears and self-limitations grow. Have we the courage to discover and break through these limiting beliefs, awaken to greater possibilities, and go for our objectives?

We need to transcend our fears and accept the gift of courage.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

“Faery Wings, formed of shifting light, emotion, and energy

are the manifestation of the power of those beings that

transcend the mundane world.”   – Brian Froud

What if, every single day we woke up with endless possibilities in front of us. We could do whatever we wanted, go wherever we wanted, meet whoever, eat whatever and generally experience complete fulfillment? What if we could be lead by our passions and our insatiable curiosity and zest for life? What would you do differently? Where would you go? Who would you see? What would you do? What would you leave behind?

What if you decided to take steps towards those things despite your current circumstances? Decided that you would make the necessary changes to reconfigure your life direction towards fulfillment? Degree by degree, step by step, committed action by committed action. You could completely redesign and restructure your life.

It takes courage to change. It’s not always easy. But it’s worth it if you can just take the steps with faith and trust in the Universe and yourself. Knowing that you are completely supported, unconditionally loved, and continuously guided towards the path of your Highest Good.

Every single day, you wake up with endless possibilities in front of you. See them. Have courage. Take the leap of faith.

Change. Transform. Adjust. Assimilate. Integrate. Imagine. Create. Manifest. Trust.

Breathe.

The Guardian Of The Gate

Published September 25, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Guardian Of The Gate, from the Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Guardian Of The Gate, from the Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Guardian Of The Gate, from the Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Guardian Of The Gate: “Passages to new life. Openings. Gatekeeping”

“The principle task of The Guardian Of The Gate is to facilitate the passage from one realm to another and to block the passage of that which is not ready to pass. These realms may be Earth, Faery, the cosmos of the Singers, or Unity. They can also be considered as levels of reality or states of consciousness. In one state of consciousness we are in the ordinary world, in another we are in Faery or Unity. Our bodies do not move but our minds do. The Guardian Of The Gate of Unity facilitates the passages of humans and faeries into Unity, to be filled by that song when it is their time. We cannot make the mystical experience happen to us; we can only open our hearts wider and wider until we are ready, usually only momentarily, to receive it. The Guardian Of The Gate recognizes our readiness. Along this line, one man in the Oracle on-line group notes, “We see the energy gathering into the starry gate (or streaming out of it) in the picture, but we cannot tell what is happening on the other side of the gate.” This is very suggestive of how these gates and our passages through them can be.

This is the primal spirit of all of the guardians that appear when we are about to step through all metaphorical and most physical gateways. From the guardians of the passages between the worlds to the guardians (doorkeepers) at your own front door, they are all manifestations of one spirit, like facets of different sizes on the surface of one diamond. Naturally, this card shows the Guardian at the gateway to Faery and also to the Faeries’ Oracle itself. Every person, every faery, who has ever helped us through an important passage, was manifesting the energy of the Guardian.

Now the Guardian holds the gate of the otherworld open for us. All we need to do is to enter.

Starter Reading: Drawing this card indicates that a passage is being made to the beginning of something new in our lives. It speaks of new opportunities and new openings. Passing through this gate may lead to a physical journey, a mental or an emotional one, or a journey of the spirit. It always leads to adventure. This gateway will also lead to significant change in our lives. The passage through such a gate changes us.

The gate we face may not seem like much, the decision to enter may not seem to be a matter of great moment, but the presence of the Guardian at the Gate tells us that something important is happening. It indicates that going forward through that gate is not small thing, but something to be approached with awareness and prayerfulness. We are embarking on a new phase of our lives, and there will be no going back once this gate has been passed. That is the kind of transition The Guardian Of The Gate leads us to – always to irrevocable change. We may, of course, ask The Guardian Of The Gate for guidance and protection on our journey – and we would be wise to do so.

Alternatively, the presence of the Gatekeeper in a reading may indicate that the querent is being asked to help open a gate for someone else, to help provide an opportunity for them. The job of a gatekeeper (or gate keeper’s assistant) is merely to open the gate, not to push people through it.”

by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

This Gate is a portal to new and previously unexplored dimensions. It is a one way trip to transformation and higher states of awareness. Once stepped through, it is only available to those who have not yet come to it on their journey, for those who have gone through it, it is no longer in the same realm.

The Gate is a calling to the New. It is in perfect alignment with our true Soul path, and will help to correct us on our course. If we have been misdirected, it will guide us back on a journey which will forever change every aspect of our Being.

The Guardian Of The Gateway is a representation of our Soul, speaking to us through our hearts. Whisperings, longings, urgings that can no longer be ignored. Once the decision is made to move forward fearlessly, there is no doubling back; no repeating the old patterns, no believing the old beliefs, no going back to the old ways. Everything here is new, transformative, in perfect Divine Order.

Open up to the guidance of The Guardian Of The Gate. Embrace the opportunities that abound. Embark on this journey with full receptivity; open mind and open heart; knowing that things will never be the same. And that’s a good thing.

Boldly move forward and assist others too; guide them gently forward towards the Gate, allowing them the gift of choice to move through it.

Be the Truth. Be the Way.  Be the Light. Be the Love.

And so it is. You are standing before the Gate. It is time to step through.

Namaste

The Faery That Was Kissed By The Pixies

Published August 15, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies: “Love given, Love received, Metaphorical open-heart surgery”

“Pixie kisses are not chocolate like the well-known Hershey’s Kisses, but the Pixies claim that they are a whole lot sweeter and don’t do anything dreadful to your teeth. However, if the pixies have been munching on faery chocolate, some pixie kisses give people freckles. As Brian wrote, “The pixies say that there cannot be too much kissing! A faery kiss is a blessing indeed. ” Pay attention when you feel a faery touch on your cheek or lips. Pixie kisses (in fact, all faery kisses) are to be noticed and savoured. If you do notice, you will find yourself smiling without meaning to, and feel a surge of warmth swell in your heart.

This faery, Morna, is the queen of love – all kinds of love: brotherly, sisterly, parental, friendly, unconditional or conditional, either or both. She tells us, “it takes perfect people to have a perfect love. But we, imperfect as we all are, may have many loves – each one perfect for who we are and for what we need now. These loves may not feel perfect, they may not look perfect from the outside, but they fit us now. If we don’t like them” – she shrugs – “then we need to change ourselves so that a different kind of perfection fits us.”

Here we see Morna in her role as heart surgeon, using the power of love to help us to open our hearts when we have closed them out of fear, helping us to expand and become more of what we have the potential to be. Yes, it is true – having an open heart, being willing to love and be loved, makes us vulnerable to loss and grief. But Morna assures me (and I believe her) that once a heart is truly and fully open, even the deepest grief becomes bittersweet, like dark chocolate, and there is no pain that is not balanced by the greater joy of love.

The feeling of giving love is what makes us feel good. What keeps us from enjoying it fully is our desires to won others and to have them constantly “prove” our importance to them. Such proof is impossible. However, this kind of conditional and self-limited love is part of how we learn about real love. If ever you hear yourself asking, “Do you really love me?” or saying I don’t think you really love me,” then you know that the love you are giving to the other is conditional and limited.

Morna would like to help us learn to love others without conditions, and she also would like us to learn to love while still staying properly centered within ourselves. It is important for us not to lose ourselves in others and let their desires become ours while losing sight of what we need for fulfillment in our own lives. In the long run ( or even in the not-so-very-long run) that never works out. We only think we know what others want and need, and sooner or later we get it disastrously wrong – usually by thinking we know what they ought to need. We are all learning about love, and in the process of learning, we all act as teachers for each other. Ram Dass Said: “The karma of relationships is the hardest karma there is.”

“Believe it!” Morna advises. And this is true, no matter what the relationship is. But for all that, love in its purest sense is the fast track to self-realization and enlightenment. the Wild Thing at the top of the picture is filled with bliss and is longing to cuddle its way to enlightenment. Remember, everything  and everyone in Faery glows with its own light. So do we. Much of that light is the glow of love. Remembering that is important.

Opening our hearts more widely to the giving and receiving of love evokes the well-kissed Faery within.”

Starter Reading: “Oh, wow! What can I say here? Love, sweet love. Accept it, burnish it up, add to it and pass it on.

The presence of  The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies suggests giving and receiving love and intimacy in any of a wide variety of relationships. She gives notice that this is a time to open and heal our hearts. Different aspects of life may well be flowing happily together, healing separations and hurts from the past. Bonding may take place and deep feeling emerge. Changes for the better may occur in all aspects of life, but especially in relationships, which may be deepening and becoming richer. You may be experiencing love therapy for opening the heart as new relationships begin and old ones develop. Enjoy!”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “When we block love, obviously we refuse to give or receive it. An interesting thing here is that love is an energy, an aspect of the life force, and it flows through us whether we admit it or not. The unhappy souls who refuse to acknowledge it still have it within them, ignored, denied. Another way we block love is to become the kind of people-pleaser who wants to do everything for others but wont’ let them give in return.

The twisted energy of love shows up as jealousy, possessiveness, attention-seeking, and demanding behaviour. It is focused on getting rather than giving and results in unhappiness rather than happiness. It is also based on the entirely false idea that there is not enough love in the world for everyone to have as much as they need. Another twist is believing that it is up to others to make us happy, when really this is our own responsibility.

One of the worst things we can do is to deny love – to pretend we feel it when we don’t and to pretend we don’t when we do. Another is to try to destroy love between others by any means for any reason whatsoever. And the worst of all is taking advantage of the love of others to betray them.”

“Faeries are both luminous and illuminating.” ~ Brian Froud

~ By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Love. Love. Love. Are you ready for it? Are you ready to give and to receive? What does love mean to you? Do you have expectations of what it will look like, how it will feel, how it will be balanced between two souls? Have you ever experienced a balanced and harmonious realationship… do you feel worthy of receiving love?

Part of the shift in our consiousness is an opening, an awakening and an aligning of our Heart and Higher Heart Charkas. This is where we must expand, shine forth from and receive the Love that is on offer. Universal Divine Love, family love, relationship love, self love, Unconditional Love… it all passes through these portals in our bodies. When we trust, surrender and release expectation, we allow what is available to us to flood us, fill us up and spill over, radiating out. This is true beauty. This is Divine and sacred connection. This is where the magic lies.

Release any fear around the concept of love; any feelings of unworthiness, of pain or trauma or disillusion. Let it all go. Open yourself to embrace something brand new, powerful, healing and profound.

I welcome the powerful energy of Love into every area of my life now.

And so it is

Namaste

The Rarr

Published December 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Rarr, from the Faery Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Rarr, from the Faery Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Rarr: “Wild energy. Pure Potential”

“Once upon a time there were three pink boys (more or less) and a Rarr, who all played in Brian’s son Toby’s bedroom. They liked the midnight tea parties, the magical ambience, and of course, they liked Toby. Unfortunately, the Pink Boys got too rowdy, and Brian had to throw them out into the garden, which was where they belonged anyway. The Rarr learned from the experience in a rarrish way, and it quieted down a bit during the midnight hours.

Rarrs are not naughty or wicked, just energetic. They are also not very discriminating. They like to join into whatever excitement is going on and add energy to it. In a way, they are pure potential, and they potentize whatever is happening. Rarrs are attracted to mobs rioting and to meditation groups rising toward ecstasy and to any other strong energy states.

Rarrs are a bit like Tigger in the Pooh stories. They bounce, they zoom, they go off on wild tangents. (Brian hasn’t painted a Wild Tangent yet, as far as I know, but I know what they look like, having encountered more then my share).

Think of the rrarrr of a growling dog, the rrarrr of an engine revving up, the rrr of a purring cat, and the arrr in Arrrugh! As I say, Rarrs do not discriminate. It is up to us to do that. They put a live spark into whatever is happening. It is our choice what we do with it.”

Starter Reading: “A Rarr in your cards encourages you to be especially attentive to what you are dong with your energy and intentions. Do not get carried away by the Rarr’s bouncy enthusiasm, but do take advantage of the energy. You can accomplish a great deal with the energy being made available to you. This is a good time. Note that the Rarr is not grounded – and is not meant to be – but humans need to keep their feet firmly on the earth. When you encounter the Rarr, breathe slowly. Center. Earth yourself. Be clear about your objectives then go for them.”

As Challenger: “The Rarr as challenger indicates a terrible problem. Both the querent and the Rarr are losing (or have lost) control and are thrashing about in midair. Faery glamour and faery zaps are running wild. Illusions and delusions are rife. Misunderstandings escalate. A cold shower is definitely in order. Practice grounding exercises. Meditate. Back off and look at things coolly. This may not be enough, but please try.”*

This card totally resonates with me. I think these little guys sneak into my house when my kids are starting to amp up at night and make them totally WILD! In fact, as I write this I can’t really believe just how much energy they have, and how hard it can be to get them to settle down. It is enough to make me stark raving mad. I’m pretty sure that if I found out that the Faeries got involved, things would make so much more sense. The missing piece of the puzzle.

Then maybe I could thank them for their efforts and return them to the garden! Way too exhausting to deal with that kind of energy inside, particularly in the evening.

But, that’s just me. I think there is more to this message. There is a bit of a warning here too. Not to get all caught up in the drama. Not to be impulsive. To use your energy wisely. There is great potential here for manifestation, so be careful what you wish for! Don’t be reckless, impatient and greedy, or you will be caught up in the vortex of disillusion. Wait it out. Plan it wisely. Wish for what is best for All.

Know that the energy of the Fae is a powerful force, and they can make amazing allies. But they also can be tricky, amplifying things into a frenzy. If you are already scattered and unclear, you could manifest a tough lesson instead of making a powerful choice. They will work with you either way.

Slow down and breathe deeply. Make a plan of action. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s and do your research. And then muster all your energy and enthusiasm and channel it into exactly what you wish to create. With grace and ease.

Namaste
