Black Dragon: “Cocoons you so that your divine potential grows.”

“Meditate. Reflect. Undergo a metamorphosis.”

About Black Dragon: “Fifth dimensional black dragons are powerful. They only come to us when we are ready to nurture a new idea or concept that will enable our divine potential to grow.

Black is the ultimate divine feminine colour, the shade of mystery and magic, of secrets and hidden hopes. When we are prepared to surrender to the black dragons, they will cocoon us in silky black energy, and as we rest within this safe, dark place, they will enable the new to develop within us. Eventually we will emerge, like a butterfly, having undergone a profound metamorphoses.”

Guidance From The Black Dragon: “Choosing this card suggests it is time to rest, for it is during such moments of relaxation that divine projects, creative ideas or a new way of thinking are conceived. In times of peace and stillness, fresh seeds and ideas can grown.

The mighty black dragons wish to create a dark cocoon for you now so that the new can germinate and sprout. You are asked to accept their assistance, for it will serve your spiritual growth. Take time to meditate or reflect and the dragons will surround you with their breath. This will allow the opportunity that is being presented to you to take root.

When you are ready, the black dragons will help you to nurture the new growth. Ask them to help you hold your vision until it comes to glorious fruition.

They will also be working with you in your sleep state and you may be aware of their presence, so acknowledge their help.

Expect to be different and be ready to spread  your wings.”

~ By Diana Cooper

February is a month of things happening behind the scenes; beneath the fertile soil. Things growing in the dark, reaching up towards the light. A month of pure possibility, ruled by the energy of the new moon right in the middle. A window of opportunity to conjure our dreams into reality.

We are in creation mode now. Inward focus. Meditation. Contemplation. Drawing our dreams out into the light.

Planted seeds are germinating now, wings are growing, the cocoon is feeling snug. But we won’t feel constricted long. This phase is fleeting. Transformation is imminent. 

Take time to reconnect with the stars; appreciating their vast sparkling energy.

“Expect to be different and be ready to spread your wings.” I am  so ready for this, how about you? I Am ready to accept assistance in whatever form it comes to me. I Am open and receptive and allow change to happen in my life. I Am ready for the Black Dragon energy.

And so it is

Namaste

Diamond Mandalas

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Diamond Mandalas, from the Sacred Geometry  Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Diamond Mandalas: “Other Dimensions”

“Whirling out from the womb of the cosmos, energy is the most basic stuff of creation. Every quark and molecule of humankind and the entire multiverse consists of tiny packets of energy and light. The Spirit or Light body is spoken of in some ancient philosophies as the “Diamond Soul” and is believed to be the eventual course of evolution for humanity as a whole. It is multidimensional and holographic and could be pictured as your interdimensional passport.

Meditate … Travel with the image on this card to other dimensions and envision bringing forth your pure diamond light. This essence is the brilliant core of you that shines in love, compassion, fulfillment, and joy. This diamond soul is within you. As you bring it forward, it will put you on a path illuminated by your own inner radiance. Employ this card to journey to dimensions so brilliant that your heart bursts open in rapture. Sit in this bliss and soak up the light. Sit with your brilliance as along as you are able, then slowly, consciously return to your physical body in the here and now.

When you return from this meditation you may need some time to integrate the light that you now contain. Ask to assimilate this energy in a holistic manner so you may make use of it in the highest and best manner possible.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Know that allowing your light to shine does not mean trying to outshine others.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Are you meditating, Dear One? What does meditating mean to you? Does it sound daunting? Do you worry that you won’t be able to do it, put it off for another day off in the future when you feel you have reached a higher level of consciousness? Do you think that your mind is just too busy; or your life is too busy; or that only certain “Spiritual People” have time for all that?

Maybe we need to change that word, meditation. Maybe it just feels to big, too perfect, too unattainable.

Maybe we could just call it ‘listening’ instead. Maybe we could call it ‘focusing on your breathing and see what happens’ would that feel better? Would that inspire you to spend more time alone, quiet, breathing and listening and clearing your mind of the clutter?

Because if you do, magic will happen. Time travel will happen. Interdimensional, interstellar, cosmic adventure will happen. Really. Add some sacred ceremony; some time out in Nature; a yoga practice; some beautiful music or some creativity and mix it up a little. It still counts. Especially if you are listening to your heart and Soul while you do it.

There are no rules, just focused intention, dedication and commitment. Along withe some curiosity, patience and surrender.

And so it is

Namaste

Sige ~ Quiet Time

Published July 13, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Sige ~ Quiet Time: “Take some quiet time alone to rest, meditate, and contemplate.”

Message From Sige: “Shhh, dearest one. Quiet your mind. Breathe and let go of words, worry, and plans. Go into that space of silence deep within you, that vortex of peace where the world does not enter. Now is the time to retreat in silence and spand time alone. I will lovingly help you to rejuvenate and recenter yourself. Do not try to make any decisions now. Just allow your mind to be at rest. You will know soon enough when it is time to take cation. But for now, quiet your mind. Rest.”

Various Meanings Of This Card: Go on a retreat. Listen more and talk less. Avoid loud noise and sounds. Meditate. Surrender mind chatter to heaven. Know that you are more sensitive to noise now.

About Sige (pronounced Sig or Seej): The Gnostic goddess Sige is considered to be that great silence or void from which all creation sprang. Sige reminds us that worlds create duality, and that in silence, we find our true origin and self. Quiet is omnipresent power that gives birth to wisdom, just as the Gnostics hold that Sige is the mother of Sophia, the goddess of wisdom. Sige teaches that our roots are in the silent void of the universe, and that it is important for us to reconnect with silence regularly.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

You may have felt a lot of pressure lately to make a decision. Rather than push, you must surrender. What will be, will be. You cannot hasten the plan; Divine timing must be acknowledged. Breathe and know that your angels and guides are working behind the scenes to align you with the best possible outcome for your current predicament. Have faith that everything will work out in the end, in ways that you cannot possibly control. Surrender.

This is not a time to force an issue, it is time to wait it out. Progress is being made, you just can’t see it yet. Use affirmations to calm your mind, focusing on the intention that everything will work out for the highest good of everyone involved. Focus on joy, peace, abundance, health and happiness, but do not use parameters at this time. Expect the unexpected without putting pressure on yourself, and know that things can change for the better in a heartbeat when the Universe is on your side.

Avoid people who put extra stress or pressure on you at this time, you may not have the extra energy to put in to trying to appease them. Instead, surround yourself with flowers, pets, children and like minded people, who love and appreciate you as you are. Spend as much time outside as you can, and pay close attention to the birds and animals as they work as messengers for your angels and guides.

Make time each day for some deep breathing, yoga or mediation, directing your focus inside and listening.

You may just be surprised with what you hear.

Namaste

Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha

Published May 29, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, Card Meaning: “This card is a call for you to meditate regularly. Your path, body and soul are asking for quiet time to reflect, think and receive insights. Even a small amount of time devoted to daily meditation will bring you great gifts. You do not necessarily need any formal training in meditation. It is simply a matter of sitting quietly, closing your eyes, breathing, and listening.

Additional Meanings For This Card: Be still and listen. You need some alone time. Be honest with yourself. Join a meditation group or take a meditation class. Listen to a meditation CD.

Siddharta Guatama devoted his life to finding an end to suffering. He renounced his family’s wealth and tried several spiritual paths, including asceticism, in his quest for spiritual growth. He finally had insight that moderation (or the “middle way”) was the path to enlightenment. He also demonstrated the benefits and importance of meditation, and many of his insights occurred as he meditated beneath the Bodhi tree. Call upon Siddhartha Guatama for help in developing your meditation practice, to practice moderation, and to overcome any form of suffering.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

 If we are to reach a higher level of consciousness, particularly in our technology ridden world, we must make time and space in our lives for a regular meditation practice. Meditation is a scary word for many people, as they picture hours of uncomfortable sitting in lotus pose, quieting their busy “monkey minds” and listening to the Universe. Many people say that they don’t have time, energy, or the concentration required for meditation. Yet, it is absolutely vital to our continued spiritual growth.

So what is meditation really? It is making time, even 5 minutes every day, to allow your mind to be quiet and still. It is concentrating on your breath. It is listening without expectation. It is allowing yourself to receive. But it can start in baby steps. It can start with a guided meditation on CD or downloaded from the internet or youtube. It can be a walking meditation out in nature, undisturbed. It can be sitting in your garden breathing deeply. Or, it can be a scheduled time in your designated sacred space. Whatever resonates with you is the perfect way to start, as you get more comfortable and see the benefits, you can add more time or change your routine. The most important part is starting.

If you do decide to set up a sacred space, pick somewhere that you can be alone and feel safe and secure. You can create an alter, with some favorite crystals, a photo or statue of your deity, a candle, maybe some incense, and a few chosen treasures. You could find a beautiful yoga mat or pillow to sit on. Have fun creating your space. This should be a place that is all yours to enjoy, private and secure and personal and beautiful. It should welcome you and help you feel excited that you are taking consistent action steps towards raising your awareness, and strengthening your connection to the Divine.

Lost In Our Own Equations

Lost In Our Own Equasions, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Lost In Our Own Equations

Lost In Our Own Equations: “You may be feeling confused at the moment; perhaps something in your life is beyond your comprehension. Do not waste valuable energy trying to work it all out. Remember that everything in life is constantly changing. Your confusion is simply a result of you not accepting life as it comes. This refusal stems from a fear of that which you cannot control or understand. Look at the history of the world, and ask yourself: “what have the countless theories, assumptions, and equations that humanity has come up with throughout the ages achieved?”

Our world is as confused as ever. Confusion, stress and anxiety have penetrated deep into the human psyche as a result of a need to work everything out. You need not figure anything out in order to make sense of life. Let go and start to live. Accept life as it is and focus on the light within you. Trust – there is always a higher purpose to everything. The only thing that will help you make sense of your life is love and acceptance. Allow love into your life. Love needs no understanding, but only to be felt.

Within you flows a stream of light – the light of creation. You are forever connected to the source from which all creation stems. Meditate and focus on the beauty inside you. Connect with your heart center and experience the overwhelming love that exists within you. Tranquility, peace and clarity will flow into your life as a result.”*

– Toni Carmine Salerno

We are constantly comparing; constantly weighing our personal worth and constantly deciding to wait. Wait to start being happy; wait to enjoy life; wait to get out there and meet new people; wait until things get better or worse until we can finally have some peace. What if these things never go the way that we want them to, and what if we can only control what is going on inside us? And better yet, what if what is happening outside of us is a mere reflection of what is going on within? Then what? Do you still keep waiting to enjoy your life after you have lost weight, changed careers, traveled or found the love of your life?

What if changing your perspective; starting immediately, to one of peace, joy, abundance, harmony and gratitude was the magnet that drew all the wonderful things you have been waiting for… to you? What if the stars will only agree to align properly on your behalf if you find joy, love and light within yourself right now? It’s easy to look around you and try to figure out HOW you are going to get all the things you want in life. It’s easy to see other people with these things and think that it only happens to them and will never happen to you. It’s easy to have your eyes on the rear view mirror and forget to look through the wind shield, or get out of the car and walk! Feel the air on your face, the wind whipping your hair, breathe!

So, what are you waiting for before you get to enjoy your life? How about you cut that thought system free and start living now?

Namaste

Dolphin

Dolphin, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue: Dolphin

Dolphin: “Cosmic Consciousness. Breath. Sacred Geometry.”

“The dolphin card is reminding you to breathe. Connect with your breath regularly throughout the day. Breath work will help you align, center, and expand your awareness. It will relieve stress and keep you focused.

This card also represents your connection with cosmic patterns called Sacred Geometry. Perhaps you need to work with crystal grids, ley lines, or platonic solids to connect with cosmic consciousness. The Universe is calling for you to attune to its sacred shapes.

Additional Meanings Of This Card: Use breath work to connect with cosmic consciousness, your primordial origins, and the Universe. Spend time near the ocean or listening to oceanic music. Do manifestation exercises using your breath and sacred sound. Incorporate sacred geometric shapes into your daily life or ritual work. You can paint, draw, or meditate upon them to enhance your creative powers and open doorways into new dimensions.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

I have always felt a strong connection to the ocean and all of its creatures, especially dolphins and whales… to say that I love them is an understatement; but alas we are limited in this language for descriptions beyond love. I dream of dolphins and whales often, and I spent many years respectfully observing them as a diver in many parts of the world. There is no better feeling than being in a dolphin’s graceful, playful and loving energy. When five months pregnant with my daughter, I was blessed to share the Atlantic ocean with not only bottle nose dolphins, but also a mother and baby humpback whale; they were glorious! Somewhere I have some video footage to prove it, but it’s forever a fond memory full of grace, harmony and joy.

When I see Sacred Geometry, I think of Archangel Metatron; who activates the Merkaba of light to help all who call on him. The Merkaba can be used to carry you into new, higher dimensions of consciousness; it can be used for protection, and it also to assist those leaving their physical bodies and returning to their light bodies. I often enlist the help of Metatron in watching over my children when they are not with me; placing his Merkaba of bright white love and light around them and keeping them safe, healthy and happy for me! I have a set of quartz crystal sacred geometric platonic solids which I have added a Merkaba to. These are powerful meditation tools and although I feel that I, personally, have only touched the tip of the iceberg, I can feel that they have infinite Universal wisdom built into them. If you do not have access to carved three dimensional shapes as your tools, you can simply use one of the many mandalas available online. Surf around and see what appeals to you, or create your own! Experiment with gazing into them and waiting for messages from your dolphin and angel guides.

Lastly, and most importantly, is the subject of breath. Breath is our link to the Universe, it is our life force, our prana; it is so simple, yet so profound. Yes, we must breathe to stay alive and function in these physical bodies we are inhabiting presently. But we can also use our breath to control our emotions, well being, and ultimately to silence our minds. Silencing the busy, stressed, overwhelmed mind allows us to connect to our higher selves, guides, angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters. It gives us the opportunity to connect body, mind and spirit in the truest sense of this concept. When we learn proper meditation techniques and focus on our breath, magic happens! If you want to learn more about proper breathing techniques and it’s amazing healing benefits try The Breathing Book, by Donna Farhi. Concentrating on your breathing will help you to conquer and finally still your mind; allowing peace, harmony, balance and joy to prevail.

Namaste

New Moon Fae

Published April 30, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

New Moon Fae

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Oracle Of The Dragonfae, by Lucy Cavendish: New Moon Fae

New Moon Fae: “Soul scrying.”

The New Moon Fae Speaks: “I rule myths and dreams, which encapsulate truths about yourself in forms that you can work with. I rule creativity and the storyteller, and that which enchants. I am Imagination, Instinctive Wisdom, and Archetypal energies and forms which cross cultural boundaries. I love the moonlight – and I know only too well that the light of the Crystal One can mean madness, or enlightenment. I am the enchanted strange outsider, as are you, and so I understand when you feel you are not at home in this world. Sometimes I know you feel as if you are not at home in this world. Sometimes I know you feel as if you are not part of the mainstream, and you can feel isolated. Please remember that under the moonlight you cannot see the full spectrum of colours, but you can often see between the worlds and deep into the true essence of all.

Do not feel ashamed of your strangeness and your shadows. They can be beautiful and mysterious if they are loved, embraced and Owned. But something is missing and I have cast out a part of myself that I am now waiting to return. Like you, I am nearing a time of action, where I must go in search of all of myself; but for this moment, I take solace in the reflections of this still and moonlit pool, and even in the stark lacework of the bare trees, I find truth and hope.

You too have this quicksilver and primal energy, but I encourage you now to become practical, to deal with difficulties and separation and to dissolve your fears through action, strength and acceptance. However, do not shut out your own fears and intuition. What you resist and repress only regroups in the shadows and draws strength from denial. Instead, bring your fears out into the open and shine the sunlight on them. Embrace all of who you are. Your accepted social mask can now be dropped; you may now incorporate the power of heightened psychic ability, which can be hard to communicate and read accurately. Do not despair. You will learn to understand and interpret your own psychic and symbolic language if you practice, as I am now, in this sacred pool. If you do not make a conscious effort, your unconscious will continue to do the work on your behalf anyway. You may be a psychic night time being with fragile, but powerful abilities, but you are also of the elements, and the Dragonfae can teach you strength and give you the wisdom with which to use it well.

Divinatory Meaning: “You may be feeling abandoned at this time, or like a part of who you are is missing. It can also indicate that you have been experiencing a false belief that all others do not like or accept you. In truth, when this card is revealed, it is that New Moon Fae wishes to indicate that you do not like and accept yourself and that you may be choosing to hide from your own psychic ability and wild self, your spirit visions shrouded by denial. Withdrawal, depression,  drinking, eating, sleeping to drown out your inner voice and ability. Fearful superstitions, feeling that your abilities are not God-like or God-given. Guilt over psychic abilities and beliefs. Dark night of the soul, expecting total clarity from visions, misunderstanding the nature of psychic work. Longing, yearning but inactive. Sensation of drowning. Memory problems. Soul amnesia. Period pain. Water retention. Tendency to turn to alcohol, food or other substances to drown out psychic messages.

Working with the New Moon Fae: “Take yourself to a quiet place in nature and make a commitment to practice your meditations, your readings, your own techniques for connecting with Spirit on a more regular basis, and particularly at the beginning of each lunar cycle. Also know that you need moonlight, as well as the beautiful brightness of the sun. Moonlight will cleanse you and assist you in re-balancing, gently and naturally. In this way, you will learn to trust the part of your soul you have misplaced, and in that trusted sanctuary, it can return to you. Remember, nothing is lost. All that is truly yours shall return.”*

The angels use your intuition to communicate with you; as does your higher self. As of late, you have been ignoring messages you don’t want to hear; refusing to see the “red flags” that the angels are showing you. You know the situation I am referring to, and this message is telling you that you can no longer hide from aspects of yourself that you wish to. It is time to embrace who you are in full, with unconditional love and non-judgmental acceptance; you are worthy.

Surround yourself with loving, accepting and open minded people who love you unconditionally; taking a step back from negativity and low vibrational energy. Ask the angels to shield you from people who would control you or keep you down. Listen to your intuition, the good and the “bad”, as it is all perspective and will lead you to your highest good; there really is no bad.

Make time for yourself to be alone, doing your passion and letting your creative energy flow. Commune with Gaia, and acknowledge your connection to her beauty. Meditate, listen to music, walk outside and hear the birds and admire the flowers and the trees. Do yoga. Breathe. Know that you are Divinely guided and supported. Know that you can raise your vibration higher and higher, raising your consciousness and accepting more love into your heart. But it starts with you. Loving you.

Namaste
