Athena ~ Wisdom

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

The Myth: “Zeus feared that his first wife, Metis, whose name means wisdom, would bear a son who would overthrow him. Zeus swallowed Metis when she was pregnant with Athena. Despite his effort, Athena sprang fully grown from Zeus’s head, dressed in her war armor and shimmering gold, holding a sharp spear.

Athena is the virgin goddess of wisdom and appears in many myths, planning strategies for wars and guiding heroes toward their goals. Her ability to see things from a higher perspective allows her to choose the best course of action.

Athena and Poseidon competed to become the patron deity of what would become Athens. Poseidon created a spring that brought water and trade, but it was salty and not good for drinking. Athena created the domesticated olive tree, which gave the Athenians food, wood, and oil. Her gift was by far the wiser and more fruitful, and she became the patron of Athens, which was named in her honour. This example illustrates how Athena used her ability to see the bigger picture to achieve her desired outcome.”

The Message: “Athena represents clarity and balance of mind. It may be time for you to stop and take stock of your life. You may need to put feelings to the side and closely review your current situation. You may need to journal, meditate, or go for a long walk in order to obtain clarity.

Athena helps heroes win battles, but only through intelligence, clarity, foresight, and wisdom. This is a time to be smart, and wisdom only comes when the heart and the mind are in balance. If you feel muddled, overwhelmed, or frustrated, it is time to stop engaging in the dramas of your exterior life so that you can see what is really occurring and discover how to move forward and defeat the monsters of your inner life. This is a time to face yourself calmly and honestly , so that the guiding light of clarity can see you through to the next phase in your life.”*

Yesterday we were granted the supreme protection of Isis. Today we are blessed with the wisdom of Athena. Now that we are protected by powerful warrior energies, it is time to dig deep and find our inner resources. It takes much more than brute strength to win a battle, we must use the power of our minds. Both Goddesses can contribute to our clarity of thought, our decisiveness and our ability to tap into our vision and strength of character, where true battles are won.

We are being asked to look at things in a new and different way. We are reminded that each of us is on our own journey and we cannot interfere with the journey of another. We can provide support and guidance, just as the Divine can offer us, but we cannot live their lives for them. Maybe we have been a bit judgmental. Maybe we have been withholding love from someone in an effort to teach them a lesson. Maybe we have been sucked into playing a game we didn’t want to play. Maybe we have convinced ourselves of something that deep down we know is simply not true.

All that must be released. The slate must be cleared so that new ideas can form. There is a new way to see this situation, but we must be open to it.

Athena is the goddess of wisdom and strategy. She is not intimidated. She is not easily influenced. She does not react with emotion, but steps back to gain perspective, considering the bigger picture. She makes a plan of action. We are being urged to do the same. Refuse to get caught up in the drama. See things from a broader perspective. Strive for the highest good instead of personal gain. Take a break from the situation until you can think clearly and move forward in the best possible way.

Namaste

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

Orbs Of Light

Published October 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Orbs Of Light, from the Lightworker Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orbs Of Light, from the Lightworker Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Orbs Of Light: “The spiritual worlds are delivering a message to you. You may have already heard it, through telepathic reception, and mistaken it for your own thought. Yet it is inspired by your higher guidance, those spiritual beings that love you without condition. It is an answer to a question and guidance to increase your happiness.”

“It is possible to pray without realizing it. The Universe is lovingly listening to every thought and feeling in your heart and mind. When you intentionally speak to the Universe and ask your higher guidance to help you with an issue, this is a powerful way to call the light into your life. It works. Often quite rapidly! However, sometimes we ask for help without being so aware of doing so. Worrying about an issue or pondering a question are ways this happens.

There are orbs of light around you. They are spiritual beings that love you. These orbs contain information and energies that help answer questions – and worries – through the intelligence and love of the higher spiritual worlds. That information might come through a song, a phrase, a feeling or a colour or symbol that unlocks awareness in the deeper recesses of your mind and body.

Orbs are always around us, but appear in more concentrated form – both in quantity and quality – in certain places and at certain times, including when your energy is in a particularly soft and receptive, high frequency state. Orbs naturally gravitate towards high energy. This does not mean you have to be on the go constantly. Higher energy can be created, when you are very still, by raising your frequency to a higher vibrational state. You can do this by regularly meditating on love and healing. You can place yourself in a state that is most attractive to orbs of light by relaxing, opening your heart and feeling good. You are also most likely to perceive them around you in this state, which can be a fun and beautiful experience. Orbs are often only seen in photographs, where they appear as soft balls of light. If they are enhanced and magnified, patterns, symbols and faces can sometimes be seen within them. This is part of the loving genius of the spiritual world – the way that light can reach the earth in form, helping to raise frequency from fear to love.

Being in nature and doing some invocations to unconditional love creates an energy that is very attractive to orbs. So is group work based in love, such as meditating together to clear a sacred space in nature, then dancing and praying together in that space with joyful devotion to love. This attracts high-level guidance because a group can be a container powerful enough to generate and hold the higher frequencies of love. This can also happen for individuals, but group energy can be a powerful and effective way to attract a great downpour of spiritual grace. Clearing the energy of your home and calling in higher guidance to bless you and your home each day, perhaps with the invocation below, will also create a space in which orbs of light can more easily visit you, bringing their uplifting energy and healing light.

To access the information of these orbs of light, to be open to seeing them more clearly, whether directly with your own energetic vision through clarivoyance, or through photographs or other means, you an use the invocation below.”

Invocation: “I call upon the unconditionally loving orbs of light. Please bring me information, healing energy and joy, as I open my heart to the loving presence of the higher spiritual worlds, here and now. I ask to see, feel and know the loving intelligence of the orbs of light in ways that are relaxing, encouraging, joyful and kind. I ask for the orbs of light to bring peace and blessing to this space, to consecrate it as sacred and to protect is so that only energies of light, love and higher consciousness may enter. May the unconditionally loving orbs of light bless all those who can benefit from their presence. Through divine love and my own free will, so be it.”*

Yesterday I suggested the use of Selenite grids to enhance the energies of the home or office space and today we are invited to connect with the Orbs Of Light. If you do choose to grid your space with Selenite, you will certainly experience an uplift in the energy of the space. This is the ideal environment to experiment with connecting with Beings of Light from other dimensions, such as the Orbs of light.

The natural world is probably the best place to experience these Beings. Children and animals are generally the first to spot them, particularly babies or young toddlers. This is because they are completely open in this stage of their lives, having no limitations yet placed on their imaginations by being told what is “real and possible” and what simply is not acceptable. For adults it can be challenging to overcome this programming without feeling that we are going crazy or feeling out of control. We block ourselves and close our minds tight by worrying what others may think of us or believing that we are inviting in energy that we are not comfortable with.

If you are curious about Beings of Light such as angels, guides, Orbs and similar high vibrational benevolent Beings, you can intend to experience a connection or communication with them through meditation. Take some time to yourself and find a comfortable spot to sit and breathe deeply, eyes closed. See yourself cocooned in a circle of bright white light, impenetrable to all but pure Love energy. Set the intention to connect only with benevolent Beings of unconditional love and Christ consciousness. Go through the energy centers in your body and open them, one by one, starting at the root a the base of the spine and working up to the crown chakra. Visualize the energy moving up and through your body with each breath. When you feel open, aligned and ready, ask for signs, symbols or messages from the Beings of  Light. Sit quietly and see what comes. At the end of your meditation, open your eyes softly and gaze ahead, continuing to breathe deeply and slowly. Practice this sacred ritual until you can do it with comfort and ease, receiving any information that comes to you with gratitude.

And so it is

Namaste

Selenite ~ Spiritual Awakening

Published October 14, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Selenite ~ Spiritual Awakening, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle CharmanSelenite ~ Spiritual Awakening

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Selenite ~ Spiritual Awakening, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle CharmanSelenite ~ Spiritual Awakening

Crystal Colour: “White to translucent with striations”
Related Chakra: “Crown”

Selenite Crystal Medicine: “Selenite is a powerful light-saber of universal energy. This potent crystal sends energy into the crown chakra, bathing the body in the loving healing energy of the cosmos, and clearing away the old and making way for new vibrant energy and a deeper spiritual connection. This powerful crystal assists in opening the crown chakra as it draws down the divine light of the cosmos into the top of the head. It acts like a lightning bolt of universal energy. Due to its structure, it allows energy to flow powerfully like a strike of lightning. It is a perfect crystal for cleaning the energy field and for awakening deeply to your spiritual essence. Being in the presence of this magnificent crystal allows for a direct link and connection to the cosmos and spiritual wisdom.”

Crystal Meaning: “Works as a vacuum cleaner to purify and cleanse the aura. Opens and stimulates the crown chakra, bringing in the divine light of the cosmos. Allows you to move forward in strength. Connects to your higher self and “I am” presence.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva Of Selenite: “You have attracted this card today because you are entering into a powerful time of spiritual awakening. There are specific cycles and times in life when the opportunity to deepen spirituality are more potent than others. This is your time now, as you are gifted with the opportunity to awaken to deeper aspects of this wisdom within yourself. If you have been feeling a little ungrounded and dizzy of late, or just feeling confused about things in your world, know that this is perfectly fine and is a part of your spiritual awakening. It can stir things up for a while as the new energies integrate and ground into your day to day life. The devas of Selenite have arrived to carry you through this sacred time of awakening – open and receive this potent energy into your world. Your consciousness awareness is expanding and profound spiritual insights and deeply held ancient wisdom are surfacing from deep within. You are encouraged to honour this process for yourself and trust and open to the experiences that are being shared with you at this amazing time. You may feel inspired to study spiritual books, attend courses and workshops, join a meditation group and experience different forms of healing and self-discovery, or be guided to travel to a spiritually inspired location or retreat. Remember this time of spiritual awakening is a sacred opportunity for you to embrace your true magnificence. Trust your own guidance and intuition and enjoy this amazing journey of awakening.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Oh I love Selenite, it is the embodiment of pure light. Like water freezing to ice, Selenite is solidified Light. It can change the vibration of a room by clearing out low vibrational, negative energies and infuse us with a higher vibrational and uplifting energies. Selenite will also connect us more clearly to Universal wisdom by opening the Crown Chakra and allowing us to receive information from higher beings of light such as the Angelic Realm.

Selenite is quite affordable and prolific, easy to find in any rock hound or metaphysical shop. I highly recommend placing a grid of Selenite around your home or office. You can do this room by room by placing a small tumbled Selenite piece in each corner. You can then place a larger piece right in the center of the room, and also one beside your bed. Selenite is a great crystal for children who have nightmares or bad dreams, place one under each corner of the mattress. For those who are ailing, you can place one in each corner of the mattress and also a line of seven stones down the center of the mattress in approximation to each chakra to assist the astral body to cleanse, clear and align. Coloured stones can be added in between to correspond with the chakras which will assist the body in its healing process.

Black Swan ~ Grace

Published October 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Black Swan ~ Grace, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Black Swan ~ Grace, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower

Black Swan ~ Grace: “Everyone knows the tale of the Ugly Duckling: a child’s fable about an abandoned hatchling forced to endure ridicule and rejection, but who ultimately overcame adversity to become a beautiful Swan. The parable demonstrates that until you can look inside and find the innate beauty that resides there, you cannot expect anybody else to see your beauty. When you look in the mirror and see infinite beauty looking back, however, others will also recognize true beauty (on all levels) when they look at you.

Swan helps us to realize our inner beauty by returning us to a state of grace. Grace cannot be learned. It cannot be bought or given – it can only be found within. It must be remembered. Children naturally walk with grace. Grace is innocence and impeccability coupled with a deep knowing and an unwavering sense of belonging; the knowledge of what true beauty is without having to advertise it.

Without inner beauty, peace and confidence, there is no grace. People who have looked deep within themselves, who have healed their past and reclaimed their inner child, know grace. Grace is the ability to walk through life, head held high with humility, pride and a balanced ego. Grace allows us to be strong, abundant and proud without being aloof, pompous or rude. Grace keeps us grounded and in touch with those less fortunate and those who have not yet reclaimed the knowledge.

If Swan has gracefully floated into your cards today, get ready to recognize your true essence and to trust the grace of your own being. Be prepared to see the golden potential in those around you as you relearn to unconditionally love yourself and radiate the inner beauty that yearns to be discovered. Prepare to awaken the grace that lays dormant. Allow yourself to access Spirit’s gifts of self-empowerment so that you may finally learn to believe in yourself on all levels. Ready yourself to transform your sense of abandonment into Mystery so that others may be drawn to you in awe and wonderment instead of being turned away by fear and confusion. Allow your inner beauty to emerge and the world will applaud and shower you with reward. That is Swan’s promise to you.”*

~By Scott Alexander King

This message is an extension of yesterday’s. You must find your inner grace to move you though life’s challenges with confidence and ease. Grace is refined empowerment, it is the ability to believe in yourself and hold your values and morals high in the face of adversity. Grace gives us the faith in ourselves to succeed in a way that feels truthful and authentic, without compromising ourselves for the bottom line.

Whether it be in relationships or business deals we can use our powerful inner grace to set us apart from the masses. We can step out of the lack mentality of desperation and struggle. We can know that we have what it takes; that our inner resources are more than enough. We can create from the heart and keep creating. We can ask for what we need and change direction when things do not feel in alignment with the Highest Good.

Grace has an aspect of courage as does faith. It is knowing without yet seeing the evidence and not allowing ourselves to be defeated. It is the difference between belief and conviction, the unwavering determination that is just built into us. Everyone has grace somewhere in their lives. It is that thing that comes naturally to you; what you do it so easily it makes it look like anyone could do it. That is your Grace. That skill you have mastered; where there is no fear around doing it as it has become second nature. Find that feeling and infuse it into every aspect of your life. Watch it change how you look at the opportunities that come your way.

Meet the open doors with heart centered Grace and see how your world changes around you.

And so it is

Namaste

Focus On The Light

Published October 12, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Focus On The Light, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Focus On The Light, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Focus On The Light: “A tremendous force of light is gathering around you. It is attracted to the purity of your intention to create from your heart. As your intention grows, so does the light. As the light grows, so does your intention. Magic wants to happen for you now! The synchronicity, perfect timing, opportunities and information that are needed will seem to be drawn right to your door. You may start to feel as if you cannot walk outside without stumbling into something helpful, wonderful and inspiring.

You might be startled as this interplay of light with your heart evokes many new successes and attracts an abundance of opportunities your way. You may need to adjust as the field of light grows stronger and its effect becomes more palpable. It may be uncomfortable or feel out of your depth with these changes. This would be understandable, but it would be a shame for you to hold on to that resistance for anything more than a brief moment. Any resistance or fear will inhibit the continuing free flow of the light so that it can manifest its beauty through you, in the physical world, where it is needed.

It is best to stay focused on your pure heart and intentions. Just allow all else to happen of its own accord, without making it mean anything too personal. Simply let it be the workings of the great light of love, flowing through a pure heart and touching the world. Even if the light is drawn to you and flows through you has some dazzling effects, you don’t have to get caught up in it. Doing so might start you worrying that you are unworthy or that you are unable to keep up. This worry will constrict possibilities rather than allowing the free flow of the light. You have permission simply to be appreciative of the light and to enjoy it as you continue to focus on what really matters – the pure intention of your heart and your desire to create.

If you are not sure what this means, or how it would look on a practical level, consider this example. A service oriented business becomes very successful financially and gains considerable commercial power which can be used to help promote its message or assist other organizations in gaining exposure to the public. Of course, that power could be used in less pure ways such as boosting personal ego rather than promoting the agenda of the heart. Power games and politics might start erupting, as the people grab for their share and suddenly the purity of the project begins to crumble.

Sometimes success can be like a powerful mirror and a shining searchlight as it shows up what was already within someone or a group of people. Under the spotlight of success it is more intense, amplified and obvious. This can give us an opportunity to sow the seeds of our own destruction, or to work on what arises from a heart-centered perspective to create a firmer foundation that supports even greater attainment.

How would that work in this example? By returning attention to the heart of why the business was started in the first place. It is wise to maintain focus on the pure, original motivation for the work, rather than shifting course to focus on money or influence. The latter are not bad, per se, but they are a rather different vibration, focused on personal gain rather than heart-centered contribution. When focus shifts from the heart, the underlying energy of any creative project can become contaminated with lower vibrational forces such as fear (which is behind greed, for example). If this is not rectified, that business or creative project will begin to change. It will lose the lustre of its original purpose that made it so attractive and magnetic to the light. Its continued ability to grow as a light in the world is diminished. It may end up becoming just another corporate machine, successful according to more conventional measures, or not. The genuine heart-centered success that creates a win-win field of energy for all involved can only be attained, nurtured and expanded when those creating the project or business remain focused on the purity of their own original intentions.

This oracle brings an assurance of success of the highest order not just commercially, but from the heart. It will manifest as a highly valuable offering to the world. This applies to a project, endeavour or organization in which you are involved. Your heart will help you realize which group or project it applies to. It may be more than one. However, you must stay focused. Enjoy the glittering lights of success but don’t be distracted by them. Stay on point with what you want to create and why. Stay true to yourself.

This oracle also brings another message. Don’t be distracted by other paths around you at this time as you are too close to succeeding on the one you are on now! Diluting your energies, in the pursuit of too much will slow down your success and the world needs your light to shine sooner rather than later! In time you may diversify and explore other ways to express yourself but for now, build what you are working on and know that success is coming swiftly.”

Healing Process: “Imagine that a huge sunflower is following the sun, from sunrise to sunset. Imagine a golden arc of light being created by the gently moving head of the sunflower.
That arc of light flips upside down, to become a vessel filled with golden energy that drops down like a rainfall of energy, from the golden orb of the sun.
Imagine you can bathe in the vessel of golden energy. It feels good. Stay with that good feeling and let it settle in your heart.
In your own time, just open your eyes. You have completed your healing process.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

This is such an interesting message and so relevant in today’s world. We find inspiration in a small idea, and it sets our hearts on fire with passion and longing. After a time of hoping, wishing praying, daydreaming and imagining… the idea starts to take on an energy of its own. Unable to keep it under wraps any longer, we move forward into a phase of action and creative manifestation, taking the highest care to create with integrity and love. We hold this project close to our hearts and want it to be expressed in the highest possible way. We see it changing lives, helping others, growing into something beautiful and profound. Success comes, we are blown away by the positive force we have created; how openly it is received.

This is the crucial time. This is the tipping point…

Will we continue on as we are? Creating from the heart for the Highest Good?

Or will we be swept away by the success of it all…

Will we stick to our guns as far as quality goes? Or will it become about the margins, the almight dollar as it were….

We see this literally everywhere. From politicians who make promises they have no intention of keeping, to our favourite restaurant that started to cut corners and just isn’t as good as it used to be. We see it with paper towels that charge more for half as many, or bags of chips that are 1/4 full at the bottom of the bag. We see it with memberships that suddenly don’t include all the perks they did when we first signed up. And with service givers who have cut back on service and upped cost to their clientelle.

So what happened? Why do we start off with passion and zeal only to end up in a lack mentality of greed and hoarding? Why can’t we stick with what we have said in the beginning, why does it always have to be about the money?

Often it is simply because it is expensive these days. Everything is. Fear sets in and we start to feel that we have overextened ourselves. We burn out too fast. We stop believing that we are doing this for the right reasons and it becomes about financial gain. We want to live from the heart but hey, there’s bills to be paid and it would be great to have a bigger house, a nicer car and a few vacations a year.

So how do we find the balance between passion and prosperity? How do we put a hundred percent in and know that we will get the return?

To me, it’s about having absolute faith that if you continue to create from the heart, success will still flow. That when you go for the best margins, cut costs and up the profits you eventually sully the energy of the product you are offering. It is about knowing that what you have to offer is of the highest integrity and sticking to your vision. It is about working through the fear, the lack, the pressure and the doubt and coming back to the heart.

Staying focused on the Light.

And so it is

Namaste

Seven Of Chalices

Published October 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

 

Seven Of Chalices, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Chalices, from the Green Witch Tarot card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Seven Of Chalices: “There are many opportunities or choices open to a person with this card, but not all of them are what they seem, and other people may try to influence the decision one makes. The caution is against the tendency to daydream, rely on others for direction in life, or wish for things without expending the effort to bring them to fruition. One needs to learn more about the choices offered, ad pick the one that pulls. Of all the options, only one is right for the chooser, and the others are delusions. To be happy with the decision made, one must listen to the intuition and heart as well as the intellect. Here is a chance to do what will make one happy, and this may require standing up to others who wish to push their own choices, based on their personal perceptions and values. To find the true path to reaching a desired goal, one must evaluate the alternatives, look past the obstacles and distractions, and avoid following the whims or uncertain promptings of others.

Solomon’s seal (drop berry), an herb of decisions, wisdom, and success, grows beside the stand. A butterfly, a symbol of opportunities, confidence, and manifestation, flutters over one chalice.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Many choices, opportunities, careful decisions, deliberations, willpower to achieve goals, time to follow one’s true desire.”

Seven Of Chalices as Challenger: “Daydreams, delusion, self-deception, confusion, hesitancy, false promises, improbably ideas, whims.”

Prompt Words: “Opportunities, choose carefully.”*

~ by Ann Moura

This message is about discernment. It is about knowing your own heart and what you truly desire. It is about tuning in to your intuition and taking the time to really listen. It is about not making hasty decisions and not being pushed into anything by anyone else, no matter what their motives may be.

There are so many distractions! So many things that can set us off track in a day. Succumb to even one or two and they could steer you right off course if you are not careful. Get steered off course enough and you just might lose your way.

This is not a message about fear, it is a message about trust. It is about mindfulness, about deliberation and about resourcefulness. You know what you need to do. You can feel your way around the opportunities on offer. Bells and whistles will not lead you astray. There is success here, prosperity. Possibility. It will be as big as you allow it to be.

Take some time to yourself and breathe into  your options. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut! If someone does not feel authentic, honest or true, trust that too. Do not see only the good in someone, be realistic… when we choose only to see the potential, sometimes we miss the reality of the situation. What does your body say? Does it feel light or heavy? Where do you feel it and why would that be?

Now is a time to really trust in yourself and know that when you say “no” and close one door, another is sure to open. We so often fear that the option before us is the only one… the “what if’s” set in… we doubt ourselves. We fear abandonment, rejection… we settle, compromise our dreams.

This is different. This is big. No pressure, but you need to make the decision that takes you where you need to be. Yes, it might be scary. And no, not everyone will be on board. But you have to trust that you can find your own way.

Namaste
