Loyal Heart ~ Essential Meanings: “Fidelity, loyalty, devotion.”

The Oracle’s Message: “Evidence of loyalty will appear in your life. Others will prove they are faithful to you, and you will in turn commit fully to them. There is a sure and abiding certainty in your heart. Know that Spirit is always loyal to you. No matter the outer circumstances of your life, trust and have faith, for you are eternally loved, always Divinely protected and Divinely directed.”

Relationship Message: “Your partnerships, friendships, and romantic relationships all have many qualities in common right now. Honest devotion, faithfulness, and a loyal heart are being shown to you. Are you as loyal in return? Now is the time for heartfelt commitments and trusting in Divine protection.”

Prosperity Message: “Your long-term loyalty to your goals is becoming evident in the world of conditions, where your aspirations for success assume form in reality. Success is finally taking shape. If you are loyal to your dreams, faithful to your plans while remaining flexible, and devoted to serving others, you will be shown proof of your true prosperity. This is a time for a joyful celebration of Spirit, your manifestation partner.”

Protection Message: “Are you stubborn or overly tenacious about an idea? Or have you become so attached to something that you just don’t know how to let it go? Could it be that it has become so much a part of you that you would not know who you are without it? Now is the time to look at outdated beliefs, old ideas, and misplaced loyalties. Betrayal is only a signal that it is time to prune away all who do not deserve your trust and have no place in your life. Be new, think new, and open your heart to new things. Let go of the old and all your attachments. Spirit has awesome plans for you. Make some room.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

The greatest gift you can give to another is that of  your loyal heart. In an unstable world of madness and chaos; where reality television rules, people are making alliances and voting each other “off the island” and not even those in positions of utmost authority can be trusted, loyalty is the most precious commodity. Hand in hand with truth and trust of course, you really shouldn’t have one without the others.

Now is the time to be loyal to those who deserve your heart, and cut loose those who don’t, as well as those who are not capable of loyalty themselves. As we learn to open our hearts, we do not give of ourselves without thought, we do not open to those who do not have our highest good in mind. To those we step back from, sending love from a safe distance until they also find a way to open their hearts. We can love and accept them as they are, but we can protect ourselves as we do so.

If you are in a relationship and you are not being loyal, maybe it is time for you to walk away and free the other person. If you are in a relationship with someone who is not loyal to you, they are trying to teach you a lesson in self-worth. Learn it and walk away.

There is someone who will prove themselves to be loyal to you. You may project your fears upon them, your past hurts, your self-sabotaging feelings of abandonment and betrayal. But this person does not deserve any of that to be projected; this is your stuff, deal with it and see them for who they really are. Love them for it. Be there for them. Be that loyal heart you so desire to relate to.

Open yourself to something new and beautiful.

Open your heart.

Namaste

Elephant: “Responsibility ~ Cooperation ~ Empathy”

The Gift: “Elephants have one of the closet and most loyal families of all the animal kingdom. They live together for up to 80 years, they babysit each other’s young and if one Elephant becomes sick, others bring it food, and protect if until it is well again. When an Elephant dies, the herd covers the elder with dirt and branches. Passing herds will pause at the grave site and offer their respect – even if they did not know the Elephant.”

The Message: “When Elephant enters your life, she brings great blessings. With gentle power and cooperation, Elephant trumpets a reminder that you are a force for good in the world! There are people all around you that love and support you. Ask for help when you need it and be grateful when it comes. Look for ways also to help others on their path. Keep your eyes open for ways you can bring the gift of special support and be helpful when others least expect it!”

The Call: “Take time today to say “thank you” to someone who has been helpful to you when you really needed it. And find someone today that you can show special kindness to. Help them start or finish something they are trying to do. This could be as simple as doing the dishes, cleaning a room, quietly listening or holding someone’s hand as they take their first step into a big dream.”*

~ by Chip Richards

Elephants practice Unconditional love and acceptance by caring for each other’s young, by honouring the members of their clans who have passed on, and those of other clans as well. They are deeply connected to the Earth and to the ancestors and ancients. They practice compassion, loyalty and love. We can learn valuable lessons from the elephant.

This is also a reminder of the power of gratitude in our lives.

Gratitude holds unimaginable power. Gratitude has the power to transmute negative into positive, and turns us into magnets for more to be grateful for. It allows us to rise above the drama of everyday life, and it offers us an olive branch when things feel beyond our control. Gratitude can rekindle the Light within us when all else seems to have failed.

What are you most grateful for? What keeps you going every moment of every day? What have you possibly taken for granted that  you could express great thanks for, knowing that it has made a difference in your life, has made you a better person? Take time today to express this gratitude to someone who has helped you, who has loved you, and who has helped to make you who you are today. Buy a bouquet or pick some wild flowers or deliver a hand written note. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated, even a simple Thank you hug or smile will do wonders.

Namaste

Hedgehog Love

Hedgehog Love: “Positive, uplifting new friends”

About Hedgehog Love: You have found a new family, a soul group of kin, friends with whom you can play, teach, laugh, and share. Groups – like this hedgehog gathering – are made up of individuals, but they can act as one when it comes to keeping their friends protected, safe and feeling like they truly belong, sometimes for the first time in their lives. These hedgehogs will teach you their ways and, for a time, you ill be one of them. You are safe with your friends, and together you will laugh, play, and nourish each other with connection and kinship, that sense of being home, and a feeling of belonging that you have not had for some time. They do not ask you to be unlike your true self, just to respect their ways while you are among them.

You are healing very deeply on levels that may never be fully apparent, but the protection you are (or will soon be) enjoying is allowing you to pull back your defensive armor, be totally vulnerable, and rediscover your dreams and abilities, some of which you had put away.

Hedgehog Love Speaks: You are like us. You have been taken, adopted, marked, and accepted by creatures who are “other,” disproving your belief that you are an eternal outsider. You have found kin, and you now know you can always call on your brothers and sisters. People who are real, positive, upbeat, and determined wish to hang out with you now. Join them, and let’s all experience a time of play, of protection, of being surrounded by loving beings. Like us, you may look different on the outside – and you may seem a bit prickly from time to time – but you just want to be safe, and to be surrounded by people who accept you and bring out the best in you. You will find a true home with us, despite our many differences. You will bear, physically and energetically, a mark that will help your brothers and sisters recognize you, making it easy for them to make friends with you; include you in their activities, groups, and parties; and tell you that  you are loved for being who you are.

Divination: This card indicates your true family will be, for a time, a group of closeknit friends who look out for each other and have lots of fun times and adventures together. It is a bit of a closed group, not so welcoming to outsiders, but is members are very protective of you, and of one another, too. You may feel like you have a new adopted family, as if you  were once an outcast but have now come home. You may find great relief from loneliness and isolation, or you may discover new animal friends and pets, or a group that cares deeply about animals could be about to enter your life. While this group is very tight, your individuality is respected and encouraged – it is very supported! This could be a rich and exciting social time, and you will find new friends while on new adventures. Your peace of mind is developing and growing, and the more gratitude you show the world of nature, the more this deep peace will grow and endure. Even when it comes time to move on, as it shall come soon, you will be able to shift into a new environment fully protected and with a great deal of help. Your friends, old and new, are never far from you and will never abandon you  – not now that you have shared so much together. The friendships you make at this time are very loyal – and could last forever.”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

You have found… or will shortly find… your tribe. Whether consciously or not, you have been praying to find like minded people, to be accepted and supported. Unconditionally loved. Some are here, more are coming. They may not come in the package you expect, and it will be up to you to see them for the treasures that they are. Sometimes getting away from your perceived “type” is exactly what you need!

Know that how others perceive you always has a grain of how you perceive yourself. No more victim. No more unworthiness or self judgment. This is not about the size of your jeans, your hairstyle, your car, your job or your past. This is about you. Your light. Your magic. Your beautiful self. See the light in yourself and become a beacon to those who you have been calling with your Soul. This is not about appearances, it is about vibration and frequency. It is about depth and wisdom and love and light.

Your tribe is here, welcome them with open arms as they embrace the true, authentic and amazing

YOU.

Namaste

Dog ~ Loyalty

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dog ~ Loyalty, from the Medicine Cards Oracle Card deck, by Jamie Sams and David Carson

Dog ~ Loyalty:

“You are so noble,

Until the bitter end,

Your medicine is the teaching,

Of true and loyal friends.”

“All of the Southwest and Plains Indian tribes had Dogs. These noble animals would often give warning signals of approaching danger. They helped in the hunt and were a great source of warmth on long winter nights. Since the canine tribe has many breeds, early Indian Dogs were usually half-wild. This wildness, however, never divested the owners of their Dog’s innate loyalty.

Dog has been  considered the servant of humanity throughout history. If a person carries Dog medicine, he or she is usually serving others or humanity in some way. Here you will find the charity worker, the philanthropist, the nurse, the counselor, the minister, and the soldier.

Dog was the servant-soldier that guarded the tribe’s lodges from surprise attack. Dog is a medicine that embodies the loving gentleness of best friend and the half-wild protector energy of territorial imperative. Like Anubis, the jackal dog protector of Egypt, Dog is a guardian. Throughout history, Dog has been the guardian of hell, as well as of ancient secrets, hidden treasures, and babies – while mothers were cooking or in the fields. Dog honors its gifts and is loyal to the trust placed in its care.

In examining Dog medicine, you might find that you have fond personal memories of owning and loving Dog as a pet. The message that Dog is trying to give you is that you must delve deeply into your sense of service to others. Canines are genuinely service-oriented animals, and are devoted to their owners with a sense of loyalty that supersedes how they are treated.

If Dog has been yelled at or paddled, it still returns love to the person who was the source of its bad treatment. This does not come from stupidity, but rather from a deep and compassionate understanding of human shortcomings. It is as if a tolerant spirit dwells in the heart of every canine that asks only to be of service.

Dog medicine asks you to look at how readily your sense of loyalty is countermanded by your need for approval. If you have pulled the Dog card, there are several questions you need to consider, depending on the situation about which you are asking.

  1. Have I recently forgotten that I own my allegiance to my personal truth in life?
  2. is it possible that gossip of the opinions of others have jaded my loyalty to a certain friend or group?
  3. Have I denied or ignored someone who is trying to be my loyal friend?
  4. Have I been loyal and true to my goals.”*

~ by Jamie Sams and David Carson

We are being called to look closely at our loyalties. Are we being loyal to our dreams, passions, desires and goals? Or are we being loyal to the expectations of others? Are we sacrificing our own happiness in order to gain approval? Are we even sure about where our loyalty should be in comparison to where it currently is placed? Sometimes we don’t even know that we have been sidetracked by the opinions and control of others. It’s time to gain awareness so that we can get back on our Soul path.

Do you know what you really want to achieve or create? Are you focused on manifesting your dream? Do you put your energies into taking consistent action steps towards it? Who is there supporting you? Who is in opposition? Are you in opposition to your dreams? What would it take to change your belief system around what you are capable of?

Ask Dog Medicine to come to you as guardian of your dreams. Ask for guidance, for protection and for loyal support in reaching your goals. Know that dog is a powerful resource and true friend.

Know that you are always safe with Dog by your side.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goose, from the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Goose: “Take time to recuperate rather than continuing your striving.”

“The irony of this is that by resting and conserving your energy, you can actually mobilize your internal resources for the next cycle of work and accomplish that much more. In this fast-paced world with all of its pressures that impinge upon you, it is difficult to take regular periods of time off, yet it is critical to your health and well being to do so. Let this rest period be an opportunity when you do the things that help your body recover from the stresses and strains of your most recent activities. Sleep in, get a massage, spend some time playing with a friend, take a salt bath, get out of town and explore the woods – anything that will bring you peace of mind.

At the conclusion of a long spell of continuous, stressful activity, even when it has been productive, many people do not allow themselves a period of respite, and instead jump into yet another task right away without relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their labor. It is most unnatural, but in a caffeinated society where technology has created instant access to phones, emails, and the internet, it is easy to give away your power of choice by reacting to a false sense of immediacy and urgency to these trappings of civilization. Turn off your phone and computer, and enjoy the sunset. These periods of rest need not be lengthy, but you do need to implement them – especially right now.

Associations For This Card: Perseverance; Migration; Levelheadedness; Loyalty; Family; Determination; Resourcefulness; Quest; Integrity; Purposefulness; Imprinting; Compassion; Conservation.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

This is the calm before the storm, not in a scary way though, it is just a reprieve, a breather. You have accomplished a lot spiritually and mentally lately, and this is your reward… a few moments to yourself. Take them, and use them well.  It’s OK to allow yourself to relax, in fact, it’s mandatory. You need this break.

It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, although if that is your reality right now, go for it!! It can be a bath, a yoga class, a meditation, or a quiet walk. The important part is that it feels restorative to you, so choose something that feels luxuriant and special to you, a little gift for all your hard work lately and a recharge of your batteries for all that is on the way now.

This reprieve will be brief, there is so much coming now. It is a time to ground and reconnect with your Soul and spirit. Slow down and smell the flowers, literally… they are trying to get your attention!

Get out of the fast lane and just Be.

Namaste

Wolf ~ Guardian

Wolf ~ Guardian, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

 

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

Wolf ~ Guardian: “You are safe and protected at all times.”

“You are protected at all times. Trust that! The physical, emotional, and psychic barriers you have erected to protect yourself from past hurts and wounds are simply no longer needed. You have moved beyond your need for the illusion of safety that these habitual defenses have provided. It is time to trust that Spirit is always available to aid you in your protection when you really need it.

Relaxing these barriers, and knowing that they are accessible if you really need them, leaves you open to love, both giving and receiving – especially to the ones you are closest to. Do not hold back, clutching to some obscure fear that others will not love you back. Be outrageous in expressing your affection for those you love, and know that your family ultimately extends beyond any lines drawn by heredity, race, or species. All of us beings on this planet are family – whether human, animal, or plant – and the more you love, the more love finds you. Take good care!

Additional Associations For This Card: Family ~ Loyalty ~ Friendship ~ Teacher.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

This card is the perfect mirror to yesterdays card. It is safety in numbers; being supported, loved and provided for by your “pack” while feeling safe and secure. It is being part of a tightly knit community or family, while also being able to be yourself. It is the contrast between the family dysfunction you are learning from and the family dynamic you thrive within.

The most important part of this card is the second to last line: “All of us beings on this planet are family – whether human, animal, or plant – and the more you love, the more love finds you.” Meditate on this as it is absolute truth. Your support, your “family” is all around you, all the time. It is not necessarily the family you were born into, but the one you have created with close, like minded friends. It is those who accept you no matter what. It is those who are practicing Unconditional love and Christ Consciousness.

This fifth dimensional family is open to everyone, and some are already there. Many more will see the opportunity to be a part of something larger and trade in outmoded behaviors of lack, competitiveness and judgment to step in to being part of the global community of Unconditional Love and acceptance. This is where the true healing begins.

Know that, whether we realize it or not, we are all part of this big, loving, wonderful family. The family of Gaia; our sacred Mother Earth who has been caring and providing for us for an eternity. As we embrace our new sense of awareness, and our connection to her, to each other, and to All That Is, we will heal ourselves as we heal her.

One big, happy, loving, safe family.

Protected at all times.

Namaste
