Dagaz: “Know that you are protected. Only positive energy flows your way. Expressing daily gratitude will create profound change. Have hope! Happiness is within your grasp – the time for sorrow is over. Grief is necessary, but soon it will diminish. Seek balance in all things.”

“The darkness is complete,
Until it is not.
The black is no longer black,
But blue, and then
Purple, then streaked
With pink,
Orange, yellow, Gold.
Warmth, hope,
Happiness.
All is changed.
I am Dagaz.”

“Dagaz, (pronounced, ‘daa-gahz’) is a rune in the Elder Futark that says good things have arrived or are coming soon. It is the rune of the miracle of the dawn, the coming of the day, the first rays of sunlight after a frightening storm. It is the awakening of hope when it seemed that hope was gone. It is the first gentle happiness after a period of grieving, the understanding that we can choose pleasure after a period of sacrifice. It is the relief after much hard work.

Dagaz is a protective force too. It enhances happiness by warding off anything that may challenge that happy state. It is useful in dispelling depression, inducing hope and bringing forth a balanced mind and body. Dagaz was painted in yellow on the doorways of halls, where happy events were held, ensuring not only that good times would be had, but that the people within would be protected from harm wile enjoying themselves.”

As Challenger: “Insomnia or restless sleep. Depression. Hopelessness and victim mentality. Stuck in the old ways of thinking. Refusing to be grateful for simple things. Refusing to be happy because we fear something may go wrong.”

Element: “Fire”*

Hmmm, I’m thinking I need this rune. I could paint it in yellow on my doorways. Yes, why not do that? I love the idea of a protective force, enhancing happiness and warding off what may challenge that happiness for me. I love the idea of awakening hope where once hope seemed beyond reach. I wan to choose pleasure after a period of stress, exhaustion and overwhelm. Bring it on.

It’s too easy to slide into victim mentality; to feel like life is happening ‘to’ us, that we have no say in it. To become unwilling participants in a game where the odds feel stacked against us. It’s easy to become a martyr, believing that we must sacrifice our dreams to create happiness for anyone and everyone in our lives despite ourselves.

We need to let that mentality go. And find a way to create something better. Stronger. More suited to the reality we desire to create.

What else is possible here?

There is no such thing as coincidence. Only synchronicity. There is no such thing as jinxing ourselves. It is safe to dream big and act on it. All those limiting belief systems just hold us back from what is ours, not the other way round. And yes, you deserve to be happy.

Expect a turn of events. Expect happiness. Intend it. Find it and hold onto it. Radiate it out into the world.

Namaste

Life Restored

Life Restored: “Priestess of the Phoenix”

“Spiritual resurrection is gifted to you now. Whatever part of you or your life you thought to be dead is being revived and will flourish back into life. Just as the Phoenix rises from the fire, transitioning from death into life, so too will you rise again, healed and renewed.”

“Life Restored brings messages that a trauma, ending, struggle or apparent defeat is not the end of the story for you now. What may appear to be an ending can sometimes simply be the forces of Ancient Feminine Power flowing into new pathways, pulling energy away from old forms so that they can transition into new forms. This can take short or long periods of time. It could be over days or years, weeks, months, decades. It doesn’t matter how long something appears to have been decaying, it will spring back into life at the right time.

Just as the River Nile subtly adjusts its course over time, so too will the River of Light that flows through you, filing you with life force and Divine Energy, move with innate wisdom. You can trust what is happening for you now. Something important to you is coming back to life. It might even feel like you are coming back to life after a period of increasing emotional numbness, physical or psychological struggle or spiritual disillusionment. It might also be a lifestyle, practice, business or relationship – new or old – that is coming to new life now.

You are guided by Divine Priestess of the Phoenix, Sister Isis, to turn your face to the Sun. Just as the Sacred Scarab Beetle follows the movement of the Sun, you are encouraged to focus on tjhe light and life that is seeking you now. Do not reign yourself to the way things have been. Let go of the past! Be brave and bold and allow the Phoenix Priestess to inspire you to realize that the Return to Life, the Restoration, the Resurrection, is upon you now Have hope and optimism. Just because something has fallen away in the past does not mean it will not have value and be able to grow in the present moment. Take what is going to be offered in your Life, the rebirth that is happening, into your wide-open arms now and be assured that you have transitioned through the energies of death and into new Life now. Peace to you, dear Initiate of the Light. The past is over. Enjoy your rebirth.”

Priestess Of The Phoenix Ritual Of Restoration: “You will need four small candles (tea lights) to preform this Ritual.
Find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed, with enough room around you to light your four candles in each of the directions: North, South, East and West.
Light the candle placed in the South and say aloud, “I give thanks for the protection and healing that has been gifted to me from the Priestess Of The Phoenix in unconditional love. I now surrender any fear of being reborn into Life now into the fire belly of the Divine Goddess of the South. With honour and respect I release this now. So be it.”

Breath in deeply and breathe out fully, exhaling with intention to release any old fear, negativity, toxicity or death life energies or attachments that have drained you, or kept you locked in old traumas.

Perceive Isis, as the Priestess Of The Phoenix, Her belly flaming with vast fire, consuming and burning away your respectful offering to her now.

Light the candle placed in the West and say aloud, “I now call upon the cleaning waters of the Divine River Goddess of the Nile, the Healing Priestess Of The West. Help me to release death and to be born into Life once more. So be it.”

Inhale and exhale deeply, perceiving that healing waters wash over you.

Light the candle placed in the North and say aloud, “I now call upon the strengthening and manifesting powers of the Priestess Of The Earth, I gratefully receive your gift of being born into the world of forms now, may my Soul take shape and the healing gifts take form in my life. So be it.”

Inhale and exhale with awareness of your body. Be aware of how you are sitting or standing. Be aware of your spine, your limbs, your face. Close your eyes and feel the life buzzing inside of you.

When you are ready, open your eyes and turn to the East, lighting the candle placed there and saying aloud, “I now choose to step into life, light and rebirth, the new life is upon me now, resurrected from the remnants of my past and born anew. I call upon the guardianship of the Priestess of New Life and the East. I step through the gate now into Life Restored. So be it.”

When you are ready, stand and intend to take a step through an inner gateway. This may actually involve you taking one small, slow and meaningful step to represent this inner step into a new life. Pause for a moment and enjoy this first step into your new life.

You may wish to state the Incantation below before you close your Ritual.

When you are ready to close your Ritual, simply extinguish the candles.

Incantation Of Life Restored: “If you do not have time to do the candle Ritual above, you can repeat the Incantation below, several times, gaining speed as you get used to the words. Really feel the energy in the words and know that you are declaring your truths.

You can also add this incantation to your Ritual, as you step through the doorway of the East if you wish to do so.

Life Flows through me unobscured
From past hurts I am now cured

I meet my life blossoming anew
My inner light shines bright and true

Isis, Isis Mother of Divine Perfection
Through your Grace I have resurrection.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

For a great part of this year, particularly from mid Aug to early November, I had felt like I was struggling. That is a tough thing to admit, but it is the truth. Struggling to wake up. Struggling to do the best for my kids. Struggling with the past, the present and the future. Wanting to be somewhere that I was not and not really knowing where exactly that was, only that longing feeling to be there. It’s been a strange year.

But it feels a little lighter now. Like the weight that felt so stifling started to lift in the first week of this month and then quite dramatically on the 11-11 gateway and again during the most recent new moon in Scorpio. I am not sleepwalking any longer. I’m lucid again in this crazy, chaotic dimension. I can see the beauty again. I can feel myself starting to align again. Every day of this year so far has been another layer peeled off the proverbial onion; I wonder how the onions feel as they lose each layer? Is it just the same? Do they feel vulnerable and exposed, emotional and raw? It wouldn’t seem so… yet they do make us cry a lot… hmmm

We have the chance now, at the eleventh hour, to rise again from the ashes as the Phoenix. We have the chance to start something that will carry us right through to 2018. It will take strength and determination and courage. And it may have it’s challenges. But it must be undertaken. We must finish strong.

Rise up from the pain, the doubt, the fear. Make up your mind what it is that you wish to create. Set the intention to see it through no matter what. You have just over a month.

Go. Take the leap. Make every moment count.

Namaste

Temple Of Lapis Lazuli

Published November 24, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Temple Of Lapis Lazuli, from the Isis Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Temple Of Lapis Lazuli, from the Isis Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Temple Of Lapis Lazuli: “Goddess of the Ancient Skies”

“Your Soul is very ancient, beloved, and does not only herald from the Earth. It holds much special wisdom of Star People from civilizations far and near, with unique high vibrational awareness that can help humanity transition from a civilization based in fear to a love-based culture. You are guided to come into deeper acceptance of your own inner knowing now.”

“Ancient souls with experience of consciousness and community from more spiritually advanced civilizations are here on this planet to be themselves to the fullest extent possible in order to help support each other and heal human culture so that the planet may thrive.

The challenge can be that such ancient souls can feel out-of-place here on Earth for a time, as they go through an adjustment process and remember their healing mission on this planet. These souls hold much inner wisdom of Star Peoples and civilizations far and wide in this galaxy and beyond. This inner wisdom vibrates at a higher level than the frequencies of fear, aggression, dominance, and disconnection that are a part of the global human wounding they are here to help heal.

This is why ancient souls are needed of course, to help offer a different reality which is more whole and connected to oneness and love, but the challenge is not to lose belief and honouring of your own true inner wisdom and deep Soul truths whilst becoming a member of a culture that is still so different to yours.

This Oracle comes to you to provide much-needed spiritual recognition that you have wisdom and understanding within you that is very ancient and flows from the Soul, and that you also have a sacred connection to wisdoms that come from Star Peoples of Sirius and other celestial beings that serve through unconditional love.

This is neither strange nor weird, but it is precious and although you are not the only one of your kind here, it is far from a common Soul type on this planet, mostly because it takes a lot of strength and dedication to be able to sustain existence purposefully in a vibration that is lower than your own natural vibration.

This Oracle comes to you with an offering of guidance – remember who you are within, do not try to fit with external models of how to be in this world, for you are here to help birth a new way that is more aligned with spiritual truth.

You are guided to trust in your wisdom, to sit and contemplate any issue that you are questioning right now and to trust in the voice of your heart. Guidance does not have to make logical sense, though often at a higher level you will perceive a higher Divine logic in the guidance, it just needs to feel as though it makes your heart expand, and that will be a sign for you that it is your truth.”

Ritual To Heal In The Temple Of Lapis Lazuli: “If you have any crystal pieces of Lapis, any jewelry or any deep blue toned clothing, candles or crustals, such as sodalite, that you would like to use in your healing space as you complete this Ritual, please do so. You may also wish to use any crystal that aligns with the higher vibrations of the crown chakra, such as phenacite, apophyllite, danburite or clear quart, placing them around you as you sit comfortably, with your spine relatively straight.

Close your eyes and imagine traveling within yourself on your breath, until you enter a peaceful, open, vast space behind your eyes.

You sense a vibrant, dark, indigo-blue sky, rich life velvet, dotted with golden lights, like glorious stars. The sky and its stars feel ancient, endless and seem to exist beyond dime and space. You feel at home – longing and heart-opening fill your being, a deep remembering that you cannot quite explain and a sense of love from the great beings that animate the stars.

The rich, blue and gold energies of the sky and stars begin to swirl into patterns, weaving and twisting and turning with joyful dance. You feel yourself drawn by your heart towards it, and it weaves around you, forming a temple of pure energy.

You sense the temple opening all around you. Underneath you, a healing seat has appeared, and the floor, walls and ceiling, and all the furnishings within are gleaming vibrant blue lapis lazuli with flecks of gold pyrite. The light of the stars glows brightly filling every air particle with brightness and peace.

Say aloud, “I receive any transmission and healing in unconditional love now for my greatest good, so be it.”

Imagine you can rest back into your healing seat and gaze to the sky above you that opens as if you were in a cosmic observatory.

You notice certain golden orbs of planets and stars that feel familiar to you deep in your being. Allow yourself to receive love and light from these planets, these places that you have been before, that your Soul vibration recognizes. You may feel joy, sadness, homesickness or peace and delightful recognition as you feel connection with these energies more consciously. Don’t seek to understand, just allow.

Say, “I now choose to receive, through unconditional love, the memories, gifts, talents, awareness and recollection of my stellar wisdom that will assist me now on my path, through my own free will and the grace of Divine Love, so be it!”

Be aware of the light codes, transmissions of sound (whether heard or beyond your physical hearing capacity) and blessings of love that are transmitted to you now either through the crown of your head, or directly behind your eyes into the vast space in which the Temple of Lapis Lazuli sits. Know that whether you are consciously aware of the material or not, it is being offered to you now in unconditional love.

When the transmissions have completed for now, allow the energy to travel right down into the earth below you. As the energy connects with the earth, you feel yourself drawn back towards your body, safely wrapped in the light you have received. You are anchored back to the earth in this love and light, this awareness, deep into your belly and through the soles of your feet. You feel the love that you have for the Earth, the desire that you have to shine your light to help Her and be helped by Her, the deep love that exists between you.

Allow your belly and feet to feel nourished by your earth connection. Enjoy the feeling of having a place to land, an Earth garden to nourish with your Soul light and love so that beauty may grow. Enjoy your sense of belonging on this planet at this time o great spiritual emergence. You are so loved you belong here and are needed.

When you are ready, just open your eyes. You may wish to close your Ritual with the invocation below.”

Invocation To The Temple Of Lapis Lazuli: “You can say this invocation at the end of the Ritual above or on its own at any time you need assistance with higher Divine Guidance from the purest source.

‘I call on the Temple Of Lapis Lazuli
I call upon the beings of love unconditionally
I call forth the awakening of my own inner eye
I call forth my wisdoms from peoples of the Sky
I call on the protection, peace and wisdom within me
I now declare that I AM here and free.’

~ By Alana Fairchild

This message is a powerful gift and if you choose to do the meditation and follow through with receiving the attunement on offer, it may just shift you into a new dimension of Being in the world.

This message is one of healing, and of receiving. It is an invitation to call upon all the lifetimes you have experienced on this planet and gather up all the wisdom, knowledge and skills or talents you have honed over the ages. It is perfect timing to unearth your deepest authenticity, and to present the absolute truth of You into the world. To share your gifts. To shine your invaluable light and to become an anchor for the force of Unconditional Love that is coming to the planet now.

We are in a pivotal time. There is fear and chaos all around us. Will we be sucked into the drama of it all and live in survival mode, fearing and doubting? Or will we ascend beyond the illusion? Most importantly, what can we do to be of service and how can we heal collectively and come together to help the planet?

How can we co-create this new reality while not buying into anything that does not support the Highest Good Of All, and what is your part in it?

Skadi

Published October 26, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Skadi, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Skadi, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Skadi: “Know yourself. It is the most important of life’s work. Express your independence. Let authenticity be your guide. Compromise is part of every relationship, but when compromise pushes you to be someone you are not, a change should be made. There is an easier way to do things. Speak plainly.”

“The horizon
Brings me joy
There is so much to discover.
Unfettered by what is not mine,
I speak my truth, and
I am heard and heeded.
I sing along with my wolves
In harmony. I am myself.
I am Skdi.”

“Skadi is a Norse goddess best known in the mountainous parts of the region. Beautiful, strong, resourceful and independent, her name is linked to the words for ‘unknown’ and ‘darkness’ and may even be the source of the word ‘Scandinavia’ – a land dedicated to her. Skadi is a huntress, an archer, a keeper of wolves and, most of all, a lover of snow and of the highest mountains.

Her mythos tell us that once married – to a husband she demanded from the other gods as recompense for the death of her beloved father, Pjazi, Skadi tried to live in her new husband’s house. But her husband, Njoror, was a sea god and lived on an island crashing with waves and smelling of seaweed. The incessant sound of the ocean and screeching of sea birds was too much for Skadi, who was used to the soft silence of the snow and the howling of her wolves. When she spoke of missing her true home and her desire to be independent, she and Njoror agreed to try alternating homes every nine days. When dividing their time between Noatun and in Prymheimr did not work out, they decided to live apart, but stay married. Skadi then returned to her beloved mountains, where she hunted from her skis – which she and the god Ull invented!

The Norse asked Skadi for protection on winter journeys, for success in hunting and for survival in harsh times. When darkness was almost total in the Arctic winters, it ws she they often referred to. She favoured those who loved the snow and ice and who were honest, open and plain speaking. Her cult extended to the Sami Arctic region and the Arctic Circle, where people skied for survival, not just for fun.

Should Skadi step into your life with this card, she is reminding you that being honest, direct and respecting your own personal freedom is paramount. If you need courage to be who you really are, ask Skadi for assistance.*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Yesterday we contemplated the power of words, today we are being asked to stand in our power and use them. Communication, honesty, authenticity and truth. It is time to let the world know where you stand. Be clear about how you really feel, what you desire, your needs. Be honest about how you plan to move forward in the world.

Have you have been holding back? Afraid what others may think, or worried about hurting someone’s feelings? You must make sure that you are not compromising yourself or your values. You cannot live your life for another. You must do what feels right for you. Think carefully about what needs to be said. Be mindful of the words you choose. Avoid miscommunication at this time, give yourself time to think things through before you speak, do not make a hasty decision or say things you do not mean.

When your thoughts are in order and you feel ready, take a few deep breaths and intend that the outcome is for the Highest Good Of All involved.

And then say what you have to say.

Clear, direct, honest and true.

Namaste

The Unknown

Published October 19, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Unknown, from the Gospel Of Aradia Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Unknown, from the Gospel Of Aradia Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

The Unknown: “Ignota”

“No one person can know everything. The void can be a comfortable place – and one of profound creativity. Make sure to rest during busy times. We need to create space to heal or to make big decisions. It is okay not to know. Move forward fearlessly and trust in our own in your own innate wisdom.”

“When all falls apart,
Space opens up.
Courage and trust
Must fill our cup.

The void is not dark,
Yet our shadows and fears
All swirl and rise up,
Then our wisdom appears.”

“It is nice to know there are still things that are unknown, isn’t it? Or do you not agree? We have always had both a fear of, and a curiosity about, the unknown. we fear what we do not understand – which is natural, because our earliest survival as a species depended on our knowledge of our surroundings. But that survival instinct has evolved in ways that may not always serve us today. In our search for scientific certainty, we can scrutinize ever smaller details until we lose sight of the magic that exists in the whole of which those details are only a part.

Our society prides itself on knowing – and knowing now! We carry phones, tablets, and computers around with us that can spew out a multitude of answers to any question on demand. Information is so prevalent that we may feel anxious if we are not able to explain a new idea or a more subtle feeling on the spot. But in my opinion, there is still a place for the unknown, for the power of the void in our world.

Aradia reminds us how awe-inspiring mystery can be – witchcraft, for example. Yet, if asked how witchcraft works, some might say that it is just a form of self-hypnosis. In their haste to label witchcraft in a way that makes it easy for them to explain, they would have forgotten to consider all that we do not now about the factors that comprise the craft – among them, the potency of ritual and intention and synergy. I believe that Aradia, if asked how witchcraft works,would simply smile and say, ‘All in all, we do not need to know how it works – we just need to know that it does!’

In magic, we consider the dark moon (the night before the new moon appears, when it looks as if there is no moon in the sky at all) ‘the void’, which we could also call ‘the unknown’. It is a period of great gentleness, a time when any thing is possible. This makes the dark moon the perfect phase under which to plan the ‘what’s next’ in our lives. Then the next night, the new moon brings us the opportunity to intend new beginnings and fresh starts.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

And here before you stands a door. The door to a brand new chapter in your life. The door to the unknown.

An opportunity is coming your way and very very soon if not today! It may feel just as daunting as the image in the card above. Two big, solid, heavy doors, looking old as time itself. But do you see the Light there, shining from just above them? A positive sign for sure!

The opportunity coming to you is the right one, you must take it. You will know in your heart that it is safe to open the doors. Trust your gut. Heed your intuition. Do not seek advice this time, trust only in yourself and follow your inner guidance.

These doors are heavy, and as sure as they will open to you, the will surely shut securely after you pass through them. This is absolutely necessary. The door opens and then shuts. The future opens to you, the past recedes. The opportunity comes, then passes if we do not take it. There is so much power in the decision before you.

Choose wisely.

Do not fear the unknown

Isis ~ Protection

Published October 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Isis ~ Protection: “You are loved and protected even through the most difficult of trials. This is a time for healing. You need mothering or to use your mothering energy. Magic is happening!”

“Isis is the daughter of the sky goddess, Nuit, and the earth god, Geb. As the wife of Osiris, she is one of the most enduring symbols of loving motherhood, dedicated wifehood, and feminine protective energy. Isis’s love and devotion to Osiris after his brother Set killed and dismembered him is a central story is the mythology of the ancient Egyptians.

The storm god, Set, became jealous of Osiris and killed him. In his rage, Set dismembered the body, hiding the pieces so that Osiris could not be resurrected. When Isis discovered that her husband had been murdered, her grief was immense – some say her tears triggered the Nile’s annual flood. Not satisfied that her great love would never attain eternal life, Isis traveled the earth looking for the pieces of Osiris. She found him piece by piece. Advised by the god of knowledge, Thoth, she cast a powerful spell, which bought her husband back to life long enough for her to conceive a son, Horus. Osiris retreated back into the underworld, where he ruled from then on.

As a result of her role assisting the newly formed Lord of the Dead, Isis became a protectress of the dead. Many sarcophagi featured her image with mighty outstretched wings extending her energy and protecting the body. As the mother of Horus, she is often depicted breastfeeding him or cradling him lovingly, again symbols of feminine protection and influence.

The cult of Isis spread all over Egypt and extended into Greece, Italy, and surrounding areas. Major temples were constructed in her honour on Philae and as far away as Delos in Greece. Priestesses of Isis were known for their haling skills.

Although the spread of Christianity halted worship of Isis, it is easy to see how she was appropriated by the Christian religion in the form of Mother Mary. The iconic poses of Mary, the mother of Christ, are incredibly similar to images of Isis and Horus.

When you are fearful or in need of protection, call upon this great goddess. Ask for her help when you feel the eyes of judgment on you, when you need some extra armor, or when you feel particularly vulnerable. Allow her wings to surround you and protect you. (*Please note: If you are feeling physically threatened in any way, it is important that you find someone you trust to help you. Living with the real threat of physical violence is unhealthy, and others can help you to put a stop to it.)”

Shadow Side: “Even though Isis used all her skills to find and revive Osiris, she could not keep him alive and with her forever, and he retreated and became the god of the underworld. Sometimes, no matter how much we may try to protect someone, things do not turn out as we wish. You may see a sibling exhibiting what you see as poor or destructive behaviour or a friend acting in wild ways that seem out of character and try to protect that person – only to have your opinion or help rejected. While we may mean well, and even be right, people need to learn life’s lessons on their own. It may well be a karmic situation that is resolving itself or a key life skill that someone is learning while we watch. (In the case of behaviour that is harmful to themselves or others, you should inform someone else you trust to help resolve the situation.)”

Symbols: “Ankh, outstretched wings, knot of Isis (tyet), throne hieroglyphic symbol, roses.”

Invocation: “When you need protection or feel someone in your life could use a little extra too, you can invoke Isis to help. You will need some rose petals, some rose incense on a charcoal, and a dark pink or gold candle.
Take a salt bath or shower to cleanse yourself. Relax. Light the candle and say:

Mother Isis, daughter of the infinite Nuit, daughter of the
earth-rich Geb,
Wife of Osiris, whom you healed and gave life to,
Stretch your wings around me!
I ask for your protection.”

Now light the rose incense. Allow the smoke to rise and say:

As you watch above all, as you nourish your children,
I humbly ask for your love and protection.

Now tell Isis what your needs are. Be truthful and feel all you need to feel.

Know that Isis is compassionate and powerful. Imagine her wrapping her wings around you, giving you love and energy. Say:

I am not afraid. You are with me, Goddess.

Stay in her loving embrace as long as you need to. Take your time.
When you are ready, or when Isis unfolds her wings, give her thanks. Know that she is watching over you and will respond.
Repeat this invocation when you need to.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Sometimes the world feels like a scary place. So much is going on, so much is beyond our control. We try to live our lives the best we can amongst the chaos. We send prayers, we send love. We try to be of service. We open our hearts and we put ourselves out there, and yet it can feel sometimes that we are so very vulnerable. That we are unprotected. That there is just so much to fear.

When we feel like this we sometimes just need an extra layer of protection. We need to know that we are safe, no matter what happens. In what can feel like perilous times, we want a powerful warrior on our side. Goddess Isis can help us with this, (as can Archangel Michael of course).

See the Goddess as she appears in the image above; totally fearless, always ready and willing to take on anything; particularly what scares you right now. Consider carrying or placing an Ankh beside your bed or under your pillow; one that you have drawn yourself is fine. You can also get an Ankh to wear as a symbol of protection and life.

Know that you are protected and that it is safe to get back out there and do what you have to do, the Goddess by your side. Know that you also have a spark of her divine warrior energy and that you can always summon this powerful energy to get you through challenging or difficult times.

Namaste

Phagos Beech

Published September 27, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Phagos Beech, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

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

Phagos Beech:

Totems: “Keys, Ancient Texts or Spell Books, Snake Deities/Guides: The Great Goddess in all Her Forms, Archangels, Merlin, Thoth, Ascended Masters, Ancient Ancestors”
Letters: “IO, PH”
Class: “Chieftain”

Keywords: “Ancient knowledge and teachings, generations, books, texts and scrolls, guidance from the past, wisdom, ancestors and lineages.”

“The Phagos Beech is associated with ancient wisdom keepers. The teachings form the past are stored in old objects, special power places upon the earth, and writings. This tree offers guidance from the past and can support new insight and sustenance. Beech is the mother of the woods and is queen to the king, Oak. She provides grounding and a strong foundation for any area of study or research. It is interesting to note that the words “beech” and “book” have the same origins. The ogham for this tree is Phagos and the letters are IO or PH. This ogham is represented by the hook.”

Phagos Beech in a Reading: “When you receive the Phagos Beech in a reading, you are asked to study, do research, or gather information. You might be drawn particularly to ancient information and seek guidance form the ancient past. You might seek lost wisdom or guidance from the ancient past. You might seek lost wisdom or guidance and information from your elders. Perhaps you feel drawn to research your own lineages or travel to distant lands and sacred sites or countries that were home to your ancestors. You may feel drawn to write your own book to share such knowledge.

The Beech is full of the ancient mysteries of the British Isles. When this card appears in your reading, you may fulfill a desire to visit a place connected with your past. You may have stories about your ancestors or lineages to share. You may receive information when handling old objects. If so, spontaneous stories and characters may come into your consciousness, which you will feel compelled to write down and share.

Perhaps it is time to go back to school and do serious research and study. What have you always wanted to learn more about? When you get this card you may want to commit to a plan. This can either be study on your own, classes, or a full program.

This tree also offers you grounding and is able to create sacred space for you. Call in the energy of Beech and ask for guidance and wisdom. The information you need may come from a wise person, a book a dream, or your intuition. If you are beginning a project, this tree offers you a strong foundation and stability. You may be involved with a project for a full year and have to be diligent to bring it to completion. Beech will help you stay with your task.”*

It’s time to broaden your horizons. Learn something new. Information is empowering, expanding the mind and opening new neural pathways in the brain. There is more out there, wisdom beckons you on.

If you have been feeling in a rut lately, this is the perfect time to shake things up a little. Stepping out of your comfort zone to learn something new; gaining inspiration and motivation. It could be as simple as joining a workshop or class, or reading a book. What is it that is calling to you?

Do some research, find out what your options are. If you just don’t know, try jumping in and trying something that you never thought you would try! Guaranteed you will learn something, and meet people along the way. Who knows what doors could open to you.

By deciding to learn, you trigger new experiences from the Universe. When you deepen your wisdom, you change yourself forever. You are creating turning points in your reality. Think about it, how profound it can be.

What are you going to turn your attention to? What are you going to learn? Maybe you will uncover hidden gifts or talents. Maybe you will access parts of you that have until now remained dormant. Maybe you will change the course of your life.

It is all up to you.

What do you want to learn? How are you going to expand your reality?

Namaste
