Daily Angel Oracle Card: Kyanite Blue, from the Crystal Reading Oracle card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Kyanite Blue: “Letting Go”

Crystal Colour: “Blue with strops of silver mica”

Related Chakra: “Throat”

Crystal Medicine: “The sacred geometry and structure of Kyanite allows for energy to flow very directly and powerfully through this crystal like a strong electrical current. This powerful medicine promotes letting go of dormant emotions, feelings, and energy that have been held within the energy field and physical body. Kyanite is inviting you to open and receive its powerful medicine as you let go and surrender to all that no longer serves you in life.”

Crystal Meaning: “Deepens self-awareness. Expands your consciousness, creating new opportunities in life. Allows you to let go of old emotions and thus make way for the new. Assists in connecting to your voice with a free-flowing expression.”

Oracle Reading Message From the Crystal Deva: “You have drawn this card today to remind you it is time to surrender and let go. As we journey through life, we collect and hold onto old belief systems, ideas, emotions, feelings, and experiences that have hurt or affected using some way or another. You may be currently feeling held down by old baggage, negative feelings, and thoughts that you have found challenging to let go of. The devas are here to share with you that the past is now behind you and it is time to detach, release, and let go of all that no longer serves you. Whether it be an old hurt, relationship, job, friendship, or behavior, offer these feelings over to the crystal devas as they assist in the letting go process. You are encouraged to work deeply with the devas of Kyanite as they show you how to surrender, let go, and move with the flow. It is time to set yourself free from the old restraints and allow a new, fresh energy into your world. Feel yourself releasing all expectations and control and allow yourself to fly high and set yourself free.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

As the eclipse energies start to flow we are asked to take the next couple of days to release all that no longer serves us. This is a very common theme for us these days, I feel like it is something that I am writing about very regularly. But alas, we humans get stuck very easily! We don’t like to give up our comfort zones, even if they are holding us back from our true magnificence!

If you have a Blue Kyanite, now is the time to work with it. You can find them at almost all metaphysical or rock hound shops for a reasonable price so it may be something worth picking up if you have the means. Blue Kyanite will assist us in the process of gently releasing, particularly in the Throat Chakra. Is there anything that needs to be said in order for you to move forward? What have you held back in the past that has turned into a blockage of energy in this area? It is time to speak your truth.

As you know in the depths of your Soul, the truth truly does set us free.

Namaste

The Ancient Ones

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ancient Ones, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli, Poetry by Richard Cohn

The Ancient Ones: “Your spiritual growth is now acknowledged and witnessed by the heavenly ones that see beyond time and space into the reality of your soul. Do not lose heart if your spirituality is not fully acknowledged, understood or appreciated by those around you in the physical world as yet. Thought they may love you, it is most likely that their vision is still bound by time and space and they cannot see into the very real gains that you have made in the subtle worlds, where all true spiritual growth begins. So the ancient ones reach out to you and bring this message: “We see you, beloved. We honour your growth. It is real, it is palpable and soon it will manifest fully in the physical world, with breathtaking beauty. We honour your light. Namaste.”

This oracle brings guidance that you have taken a leap in personal growth. If you are still testing it in the physical world, trying to translate your inner changes into outer experiences, take heed, it’s only a matter of time before you see reflected back to you in your physical world, what you have become within.And you will see it mirrored back to you in the eyes of those around you in sacred relationship, too.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

Here’s wishing you
Some sunshine
The day after the rain

Here’s a hug
Of understanding
When life
Seems filled with pain

Here’s knowing that emotion
Like wind
Blows many ways

And our course
Will seem more certain
With the Dawn
Of each new day”*

~ By Richard Cohn

We are being tested, individually and collectively. As the old falls away and we accept the new, comfort zones are being expanded past their capacity and bursting wide open. The expansion is that big, that deep. It will blow holes in all the old, outmoded belief systems. Thank goodness for that!

People that cling on will feel the struggle. Those who go with the flow will experience the transition with more grace and ease. Those who experience grace and ease at first may come into conflict with those who are not happy with seeing them change. Many people fear change and are quick to anger when they feel they are losing control.

Yet part of all of this is the realization that there really is no such thing as control. It also is just an illusion. Of course.

You have the support of the ancestors, through many lifetimes, and throughout the galaxy. We are all coming together now. You roots go so much deeper than you think; your DNA a mixture of many beings over a span of time beyond your wildest imagination. The Ancient Ones stand by to assist you in your transition. They offer guidance, love and support. If you are willing to receive it. Do you see the Ancients in the card? They are not human yet they are our relatives across time and space. Answering our call for assistance. Speak to them in Light and they will come. It’s time for this communication to take place.

These are powerful times. The polarity is stretching, dark and light coming so far apart they can do nothing but come back together. And when they do, everything will change. It’s changing now.

Being part of the Light is a responsibility. It is a choice.

It is your Soul path; your reason for Being.

Anchor the Light despite the chaos, despite the conflict.

Choose love.

Namaste

Spiritual Practice

Published August 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Spiritual Practice, from the Whispers of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spiritual Practice, from the Whispers of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Spiritual Practice: “A spiritual practice will help ground your day. It may trigger observations that lead to life-changing breakthroughs and ideas.”

“There are many ways to maintain a spiritual connection through a committed practice. Ganesha is asking you to reflect on the benefits that may be gained by following a specific daily routine for your spirituality. This might include prayer, meditation, or an exercise schedule that connects the body, mind and spirit such as yoga or tai chi.

Additionally consider burning incense, which is often used to accompany prayers, invocations and spells in many cultures. As the incense smoke rises up to the heavens, it is said to represent the requests reaching their destination and meeting with approval from the Divine. Incense is also believed to have properties that dispel negative energy. Use incense or burn sage to create a special haven for yourself or to clear a sacred space in preparation for a special occasion or ceremony. The smell of incense can also bring about heightened spiritual awareness and realization for the user.

There are many tools and techniques that you can use through out your day to preserve or regain tranquility. Even simply taking a deep breath can restore a spiritual connection. Find what worlds for you and dedicate sometime to your practice each day.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

I have mentioned many times that yoga has quite literally saved my life! It has brought me the sanity and peace of mind; centeredness and balance that got me through some of the most difficult times of my life to date. Daily practice. Being with  yourself, every single day is different. Every day something shifts, body, mind and spirit. Today is totally unlike yesterday and who knows what tomorrow holds. When you are in the hot room, anything could happen! I tell people that when my kids grow up and leave my nest, I will keep doing yoga. More and more yoga! I will travel and do yoga. I will go back to teaching yoga. I will happily step into a bubble of yoga that will guide me for the rest of my days.

I’ve put quite a lot of effort into my spiritual practices. I work a lot with crystals and grids. I write these posts, which gets me working with all the beautiful cards I have been blessed to work with. I read a lot. I listen to beautiful music. And yet I’m always looking for more ways to connect, more ways to heal, more ways to share. It always feels like there could be more, that there’s so much to learn. There is so much to weed through as well to see what feels right, what resonates with your heart and soul.

Commit to your spiritual practice in whatever capacity you can. Whatever feels right to you. Make an altar, learn a new form of exercise, expand your musical taste, get outside in the forest. Whatever connects you, whatever calls you. Talk to your angels and guides. Share your experiences with others, give them safe space to talk about their experiences too. Experiment with crystals, colour or energy healing modalities.

Disengage from the drama of life and get back to what matters most. Your heart and soul, your love and your light. Your biggest gifts to share.

Namaste

Micah ~ Divine Plan

Published August 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Micah ~ Divine Plan, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Micah ~ Divine Plan, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Micah ~ Divine Plan:
“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory we come from God, who is our home…”

~ William Wordsworth, Ode: Imitations of Immortality

 “Micah watches over spiritual evolution, seeking every opportunity to reveal the next steps of your life purpose. This lifetime represents only a small part of your Divine Plan, which directs you through many specific experiences to become everything you were intended to be. When at last you release enough emotional baggage to feel your purpose, you realize that it is what you wanted all along. Everything yo do, think, say, feel, experience and desire is recorded as your complete life history in the Akashic Records. Prior to each embodiment, the Kindel Angel who is in charge of your entire evolution meets with you to discuss the needs, desires ad karmic consequences of your next lifetime. The Kindel then forms your Incarnation Disc, holding information about your destiny – important people you will meet, major events such as crises of spiritual consequence, health issues including the duration of your life, and karmic indebtedness that remains to be worked out. This disc made of mental substance is placed in your mental body in the proximity of your heart.

Your destiny patterns consist of Filled Keys which activate predestined events, giving you a deeper understanding of your major issues, and unpatterned  Open Keys.  When you merit an Open Key, you step outside the influence of your past. You decide what  your new attitudes and focus will be. Your Guardian Angel may present exciting opportunities along with the option to deepen your dedication to spiritual growth. The angels and other spiritual beings love these times when you are not affected by planned events because they can introduce new teachers and friends, help you discover innovative job options, and expand your awareness. Open Key periods are often difficult because everything familiar falls away and you feel adrift. To your Eternal Self, these moments are cherished above all others. Pay close attention to knowing your truth during these times. Your actions, reactions, and decisions will greatly alter your future as you move more quickly through the karmic indebtedness of your Filled Keys.

Filled Keys use the force of magnetic attraction to reacquaint you with individuals from past lives with whom you have unfinished business. The events of these circumstances will be similar to the last time you met, given you a chance to break the cycle of repetition and conquer the issue. Your health challenges will be comparable to those you were unable to overcome before, letting you find new understanding and heal. You will also receive the blessings and advancements you have earned in the past.

Although this may sound as if things are pretty well set, YOU have a great deal to do with your progress. You can either repeat old patterns, or consecrate your life to breaking free. Take responsibility for yourself and be determined to clear out everything that holds you in a life that isn’t right for you. This requires a new level of brutal but loving honesty.

Your emotions are your connection to divine will. In every experience, God’s Spirit passes from your feelings to your mind. When the mind misunderstands or doesn’t like the feelings it receives, it takes control giving your will instructions not to feel the way it does. After that your will follows the instructions of the mind ignoring the truth. Your real feelings are denied. Issues that you face in the Filled Keys center around these denials. Certain behavior patterns become so automatic you don’t even realize what is happening. Once you allow yourself to feel and express the full intensity of your undesirable feelings with acceptance, the rigid energy structures that have perpetuated the behavior release and allow the flow of true feelings, guiding you to the fulfillment of your Divine Plan!

This is a slow process and there is more to heal than you would like to think. Be patient and love yourself. As you release, your true feelings may tell you things you don’t want to know. If you do not at on these feelings, you are again denying them. They are your guide to your right place and happiness in life. You may need to end relationships, change your career, or move and leave friends behind. These changes may seem difficult, but they are freeing you from people, activities and things that are a part of the pretense and are not really you. Open your heart and mind to hep recognize your right place and create the life you want.

Your Divine Plan may reveal a new perspective on your present career or introduce something entirely different. You may find anew perspective on your career. A person in the healing arts may feel a deep level of love and compassion for patients where before there was an emotional distance. A teacher may help children express their feelings and fears productively in addition to the usual curriculum. Grocery clerks can give the gift of love to those they serve. Many tasks allow the opportunity for deep prayer. While you work say, “Take me into my destiny!” what you do is not as important as how you do it.”*

~By Kimberly Marooney

More shifting, more changing, more upheaval… it’s only chaos if you let it confuse and frighten you… if you embrace it it instead becomes the adventure of a lifetime. It’s all about perspective.

Are you swimming downstream, maybe a little shocked at just how fast things are moving? Or are you clinging on for dear life, struggling, grasping, refusing? It’s all up to you.

How to handle all this energy coming in… as a gift or as a curse. Only you know in your heart what’s going on and maybe, just maybe why.

Are you trusting that all will work out for the Highest Good of All? Have you released all vestiges of victimhood? Have you embraced your new path as spiritual warrior? Have you taken time to just breathe? To just be?

You could choose, right now, to make the absolute most of jumping right out of your comfort zone for good. Like permanently. How much good was it really doing you anyway? Weren’t you feeling kind of stuck? Kind of like there was something else you should be doing? Like you were waiting for something to happen?

You make it happen. By taking the leap of faith into the great unknown.

Is that your Soul I hear singing?

Namaste

Ehwaz

Published August 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ehwaz, from the Viking Oracle, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Jimmy Manton

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

Ehwaz: “Take speedy action. Open yourself to the power of flow. It benefits us to work with the rhythms of the natural world. Equine-assisted therapy may be of comfort to you. Eat seasonally available foods and notice the particular energies of each season. We are not our past.”

“The wind, it works its way
Through my hair, a crown of ink.
I smell its direction.
I feel its sway.
My legs, they hold
To the warmth of fur,
The bellows of breathing.
Together,
Forward,
now.
I am Ehwaz.”

“Ehwaz (pronounced, “ay-waz), is the rune of the horse, and it tells us of the importance of flow, rhythm and the gaining of momentum over time. Good riders adapt their bodies and minds to the rhythm of each of their horse’s gaits: walk, trot, canter and gallop (or, in the case of Icelandic horses, their special gliding ‘tolt). In doing so, they become one with their steed, bringing grace, ease and a deep connection between human and horse.

Ehwaz suggests we bring this same sensitivity to our everyday lives. That, rather than resisting the flow, we adapt to – even enjoy – the rhythm of life as we move with it. For example, we can align with the changing seasons, withdrawing with the introverted nature of winter, and setting forth new plans in the fertile spring. Even the foods available differ from season to season, and scientists agree that eating seasonally is better for the health of our bodies.

Ehwaz is also a rune of the now, not the past nor the future. It reminds us that by being where we are and enjoying the fullness and completeness of this present moment we create a more mindful and enjoyable future.”

Ehwaz as Challenger: “Stop resisting. What is is. What has happened is done. Accept it and move on – wiser for the experience and with a positive outlook.”

Element: “Water”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Yesterday we were day-dreaming our desires into reality, today we take the action necessary to make it happen in the physical realm. We don’t resist change but go with it. We don’t hold on when we need to move forward because we trust in the Universe and ourselves. In this way we take a hand in creating through action, one small step at a time.

Horses are powerful and intelligent animals. They deserve our respect and we can learn as much from them as they are willing to teach us and we are willing to learn. They possess a beauty and grace that we as humans have always been drawn to. They can be strong and loyal allies if we treat them with reverence. They can be wild and free, fast and playful; and they can be still and silent, aware, watching. Many of my friends talk to their horses as if they were people, and you only need to look that horse in the eye to know they are fully aware if unable to answer out loud! There are medicine horses here too; ones that understand energy, chakras, auras and healing. They are a rare and amazing gift to those who work with them.

Let the energy of the horse drive you forward with all your grace and power. For the highest good of all. Gallop forward boldly towards your dreams.

And so it is

Namaste

Imagination

Published August 14, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Imagination, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Cloud Dancer Unicorn” Copyright 2017 by Carol Cavalaris

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Imagination, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Cloud Dancer Unicorn” Copyright 2017 by Carol Cavalaris

Imagination: “Envision a new reality. Give yourself permission to dream. Believe in unlimited possibilities.”

“Your imagination was once wild, free and magical. Deep in your heart you believed that anything was possible. Then you grew older and were told to live in the ‘real world’. You were told to take sensible action, to be responsible, and to learn facts and figures instead of dwelling in daydreams. You were lead to believe that hard world was the only way to get results. This thinking cut you off from your magic and blocked you from using one of your most powerful manifesting tools.

Now the winged horses call on you to soar back into the realms of your imagination and to use daydreaming as a powerful way to create your reality. Return to your childlike mind that was full of wonder and to your belief in magic and miracles.

Instead of being limited by reason, allow  yourself to fly high into possibility and believe you can be, do and have anything. If you can see it happening in your mind, it can become real in the physical. Spend time each day to powerfully dream of what you want. Let your imagination activate feelings of joy, delight, gratitude, amazement and surprise – as if your wildest dreams have already come true. Let those feelings flood your body and stream them back to the Universe. Give thanks in advance and surrender the ‘how’ to the Divine.

This card also encourages you to go even higher with your dreams and to trust they are closer than you think. Have patience and don’t give up right before your vision manifests.”*

~ By Cordelia Francesca Brabbs

Our ability to visualize ourselves and our lives is our most valuable tool. When we choose to imagine wonderful things, people and situations coming into our lives, and allow ourselves to experience a rush of positive emotion as we day-dream, we set those very dreams into motion. The magical combination between focused intention and the power of high vibrational emotion is the Law of Attraction at it’s very best. Anything becomes possible!

As mentioned above, children are the very best example of the joy created by the power of imagination. Hours can be spent inventing games with various characters, forts can be built, books experienced as if in the first person. Hopefully all children, despite the overwhelming pull of technology, still get to experience this pure magic.

As we mature, we start to rely on our rational minds to decide what is possible for us, and how far we should reach for our dreams before we cut them loose and set our sights lower. We give up so easily because we believe that we can’t or won’t have what we so desire. All that has to change. We need an infusion of imagination inspiration to save us from ourselves!

Take a moment and gaze at the amazing image on the card above. Just for a moment, close your eyes and imagine flying with that amazing being. Imagine being granted permission to sit astride him and head for the clouds. Imagine the feeling of the wind through your hair; the power of his wings as they lift up through the air over and over lifting you up higher and higher. Imagine the feel of his mane in your hands. Imagine the smell of the flowers and trees as you rise above them. Imagine the exhilaration, the freedom, the racing of your pulse. Imagine throwing your head back, laughing with glee and amazement at this wonderous experience. Imagine the pure joy you would feel. Allow yourself to fully embrace the experience.

We need more of that in our lives. More magic. More colour. More luxuriating in the senses. More visualizing our heart’s desires.

As Dr. Zeus would say: “Oh the Thinks you can Think!”

Namaste

Book Of Destiny

Published August 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Book Of Destiny, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Card deck, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Book Of Destiny, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Card deck, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney

The Moral Of The Story Is: “Destiny is created when you actively pursue it. Whilst fate may present certain circumstances destiny unfolds once you move towards it. Action shapes destiny.”

Book Of Destiny: “The Seeker is surprised that the fabled book seems of quite ordinary and unremarkable appearance, with no elaborate cover to imply the magical secrets that it holds. They catch their breath when they find that the bookplate contains a simple inscription bearing their name and, as they delve into the pages, they find the story of their life, penned in the familiar hand of the Guardian of the Books. The chronicles of their great adventure unfurl upon the written page, and as the Seeker reads, they become enlightened to the mystery the Book Of Destiny holds and the final words they find written there, “Destiny is created when you actively pursue it.”

Card definition: “When you take meaningful action in the direction of your dreams, it sets off a chain of synchronistic events, sometimes considered as meaningful coincidences. As the Seeker’s journey demonstrates, some doors open and others close, helpful allies mysteriously appear, whilst challengers test resolve, casting light and shadows on areas to strengthen or abandon.

There is a special connection between this card and Dreams, Weaver of Worlds, and Resolve, since their meanings contain the sequence of actions shaped by the Seeker and echo the secret found within the Book of Destiny. If these four cards all appear in a reading together, they are most auspicious, since they form the practical basis for achieving success through the combined effort of thought, desire, and taking action.

When the Book Of Destiny card appears in your reading, it is the reminder that you write your own book of life. Whilst fate may present certain circumstances, destiny is created and shaped when you actively pursue it.”*

~ By Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw

We really come into our power when we realize that we are the ones who shape our reality. We are not the victims of circumstance, we have challenges yes, but we also have the tools, resources and skills to manage them. We are capable, we are strong and we are courageous. We get to be the hero or heroine of our own story. We get to write our own book of life.

What is written in your book of life to date? Is it an exciting story, a sad story, an uplifting and inspiring story? Where have you learned your lessons? Where have you walked away and started all over again? Where have you loved and lost, and where have you had the courage to love again?

Now turn the page in your book of life and see that just one day in the future, tomorrow, the page is blank. What will be written on that next page? What will be written in ten pages, twenty or one hundred? How will each chapter shift and change, how colourful and beautiful could it be… will it be? Take a few moments and imagine the next few chapters in your book of life. Imagine the illustrations, vibrantly jumping off the pages. What do you see there?

What will you create?

What is your destiny?

Namaste

Dee
