Raven: “Magic”

“Throughout time, Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been true in many cultures across the planet. It is sacred, in the medicine ways, to honor Raven as the bringer of magic. If the magic is bad medicine, the carrier may be honored out of fear rather than out of respect. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been dabbling in areas in which they had no knowledge, and a spell may have backfired on them. Rather than analyzing the dark side of sorcery, realize that you will fear Raven only if you need to learn about your inner fears or self-created demons.

Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. The void is called the Great Mystery. Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being. Great Spirit lives inside the void and emerged from the Great Mystery. Raven is the messenger of the void.

If Raven appears in your spread, you are about to experience a change in consciousness. Th is may involve walking inside the Great Mystery on another path at the edge of time. It would portent a signal brought by the Raven that says, “You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.” Raven’s color is the color of the void – the black hold in space that holds all the energy of the creative source.

In Native teachings the color black means many things, but it does not mean evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or the road of the spiritual or nonphysical. The blue black of Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness, and a changeability of form and shape that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absentia healing. In any healing circle, Raven is present. Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel ‘dis-ease’ or illness. Raven brings in the new state of wellness from the Void of Great Mystery and the field of plenty.

Raven is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and the intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, Raven would be the courier for that energy flow. The intention could be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

If you have chosen Raven, magic is in the air. Do not try to figure it out; you cannot. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the sparkling synchronicity of this alchemical moment. Will you recognize it and use it to further enhance your growth? Can you accept it as a gift from the Great Spirit? Or will you limit the power of the Great Mystery by explaining it away?

It may be time to call Raven as a courier to carry an intention, some healing energy, a thought, or a message. Raven is the patron of smoke signals or spirit messages represented by smoke. So if you want to send a message to the Blue Road of spirit, in order to contact the Ancients, call Raven. Or, who knows, the Ancients may be calling to you.

Remember, this magic moment came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to bring it to light. In doing so you will have honored the magician within.”*

~ By Jamie Sams and David Carson

Raven is magic. Magic and mystery and all things sacred. Raven is the trickster, showing you the lessons you are refusing to learn. Bringing them to you in a way you simply cannot ignore any longer. Raven is intelligent, wise beyond our comprehension. When Raven speaks to you, listen closely for there is a message there for you. Raven is the sign, is the symbol, is the totem. Is the medicine.

When you hear Raven stop and listen to your heart. Listen to your thoughts. What was it you were just thinking? Did Raven just answer your question? Do you now know the answer now?

Raven is listening too, what will you ask for? What is your request? Are you open to receiving this magic? This medicine?

If Raven comes to you during dream time, expect synchronicity, magic and profound wisdom to enter your life imminently; there is no ignoring the call of Raven.

Namaste

The Magician

The Magician, from The Wisdom Seeker’s Tarot, by David Fontana

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Magician, from The Wisdom Seeker’s Tarot, by David Fontana

The Magician: “The Magician challenges us not to be deceived by the transient, material world. He shows us that life is a magical act, and our mind the magician. He is a showman, a mysterious stranger who captivates the crowd by sleight of hand, as well as by real magic, reminding us that the mind can be deceived by delusions of spiritual grandeur masquerading as the real thing.

On The Magician’s magical, floating table is an array of objects symbolizing the mental clutter that prevents us from self exploration. However, his magic wand, pointing both “above and below” – the occult expression of the unity of Heaven and Earth – hints that he can make the objects vanish. The Magician’s number is one, the symbol of a new beginning, and the brim of his hat forms a figure of eight, the symbol of infinity and the eternal cycle of life.

When you are working with this card, try to ask yourself: “How can I begin to shift my focus in life from external things to my inner self?” By looking inward you can discover greater treasure than you can ever find in the material world.”*

~By David Fontana

Do not get sucked into the drama playing out on every television, every radio station, every internet news report and at least half of social media right now. Yes, we all know what is going on. No, we don’t agree with most of it. But how do we refuse to live in fear and doubt and find peace in the eye of the storm?

We look for the magic within.

The outer world is only a mirror for the inner world. If we can heal ourselves, individually and then collectively, we can shift things radically. We will no longer suffer with the current situation which mirrors a world of hierarchy, aka “power over others.”

Our whole existence is being reconfigured, one person at a time. Starting with you. Reading this right now. You, finding the magic and power within You. Trusting in it. Stepping into it fully. Refusing anything less. Releasing all the fears, all the doubts, all the should haves and could haves, and stepping into a much more powerful Now. Finding within you all the wisdom, all the strength, everything you ever looked for outside.

Realizing how important you are to the collective. Realizing that everything else is just smoke and mirrors; illusions that can disappear instantaneously. At once you realize that you are the magician. That you are Infinite. That you are wise. That you are capable of manifesting whatever you put your mind to; focus your intentions on. That you always were, you just forgot, and now, finally, again you remember.

As above; so below. The magician seeks to heal himself, then the Great Mother Earth he stands upon.

Creating a brand new world.

And so it is

Namaste

Nephthys

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Nephthys, from The Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Nephthys: “The High Priestess ~ Intuition ~ Mystery”

“Nephthys is the hidden or veiled one who serves as a medium between the worlds. She comes to us in dreams, flashes of intuition, and visions. Along with Isis and Nekhbet-Mother-Mut, Nephthys is an aspect of the Triple Goddess. She relies upon spirit to direct her in all things and she holds the mystery teachings of life, death, and rebirth deep within her essence.

The mother of Anubis, Nephthys is also the true Virgin, or the woman unto herself, in her manifestation as the High Priestess. In our shamanic visionary experience, she inspires the seeker as she whispers her secrets into the wind and dances exotically under the starry sky with magnificent serpents winding around her beautiful bronze arms.

Although she is less renowned than her twin sister, Isis, they are seen together on the walls of the temples and at either end of every sarcophagus in ancient Egypt. When Osiris’s body was scattered throughout Egypt, it was Nephthys and Anubis who helped Isis find and gather the parts to make him whole again.

When Nephthys appears, she is working with your third eye and your sense of intuition, which will guide you further into the mysteries and to that which is hidden in your subconscious mind. She helps you to see in the dark. If you have drawn this card, be especially attentive or watchful for synchronicities. (What you may normally think of as a coincidence is actually the universe trying to gain your attention.) Pay attention to those sudden “hits” of inner knowing and guidance, and watch for those outer events or experiences that form synchronistic parallels to the inner messages you are receiving.

When you give yourself to the magic of Nephthys, she does not stop at opening your mind’s eye; she also opens your heart. Allow your entire being to thrive as you begin to see things in a new way.”*

~by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

A very auspicious way to start off your Spiritual Quest… with the guidance and assistance of Nephthys. She will prepare you, body, mind and spirit for the journey you are about to embark on. She will activate your Third Eye chakra, she will open your Heart and your Higher Heart Chakras. She will heal you as she opens you up to the mysteries of the Universe. She will bring you people and opportunities that will assist you on your way.

There are no coincidences, know that any and all synchronicity in your life right now is no mistake. Nephthys is drawing you forward. She is helping you to remember why you came here, and who you really are.

Meditate on that

Namaste

Grace

Published December 15, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Grace, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Grace: “Ancient cultures throughout the world revered those who were exceptionally gifted or beautiful as manifestations of God’s grace on earth – a link between the divine creator and humankind. Today we call such people “stars,” but what we really revere is their celebrity and fame rather than their individual qualities. To be a true star, however, is to radiate well-being and an attitude that says “I feel at home with myself and with the world.” Everyone, in this sense, has the potential for stardom; it is our birthright, regardless of our physical appearance, social standing, abilities, or the whims of fashion.

Despite what the cult of stardom would have us believe, real beauty and the grace that surrounds it is never contrived. It is a luminosity that emanates from within, ephemeral and ageless, a natural glow that arises from living a balanced life. Like the lotus blossom that appears above the muddiest of waters, the lifelong challenge we face is to transform the dark and the difficult into light, fragrance, and ultimately, the flower of consciousness.

Beauty and our perception of it manifests in myriad ways. For a scientist, it might appear as a flash of clarity when one of the mysteries of the universe reveals its hidden design. For a painter, it could be in the interplay of shifting color or light and shadow in the landscape. A composer might hear music in the night sky or in sunlit waters. The creative impulse in us springs from those moments of grace when all the divergent elements of life seem to harmonize perfectly; when, everywhere we look, we perceive the brilliance and mystery of a masterwork that transcends the knowable. Our expressions of creativity are essentially an homage to the Tao.

Awareness of beauty is inextricably bound with a sense of impermanence. Everywhere in nature beauty is born, fades, and returns again to beget beauty, in a continuous, creative unfoldment. We create many problems for ourselves by wanting to demystify and possess beauty and grace, to reproduce an essentially ephemeral experience and make it permanent. When all efforts fail, as they inevitably must, we become stuck in an impossible longing to re-create what was lost through some contrivance of our own. If we can manage to withdraw from this desire to grasp and possess, the experience of grace becomes a source of inner nourishment that deepens our aesthetic pleasure and joy in life.

Learn simply to greet beauty when it comes, to reflect upon it and become one with it, with no demands or expectations. Contemplate beauty and allow it to infuse your life; you will be beautified by it, and an aesthetic sense will naturally arise within you. Recognize that beauty is fleeing; meditate on the transitoriness of all things, which will kindle in you the desire to be aware in every moment and to give life’s beauty some form of expression. This moment is an invitation to shine and to give of your best, graciously and wholeheartedly. Let your model be Mother Nature, whose elegance and generosity knows no bounds, and whose capacity to beautify is never less than perfect. The beauty of nature is love.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

Are you seeing the beauty around you in everyday life, starting with your own? Or are you putting it off, waiting for the stars to come into perfect alignment first, waiting until you lose weight first, waiting until you meet the love of your life first? What if you committed instead to seeing every tiny detail of beauty in every aspect of yourself and your external life? What would that look like? What could that feel like? How would it change your life to feel gratitude and peace whenever witnessing the grace of the Universe and Mother Gaia?

When you train yourself to mindfully see the abundance of beauty around you, and its ultimate vulnerability, you start to cherish its tenuous delicacy and elegance. You start to appreciate it more. You slow down and enjoy it’s allure. It feels like a gift… and rightfully so.

On the contrary, if you take all the exceptional beauty around you for granted, and refuse to see your own unique beauty, you block yourself from receiving the Love that you deserve. Life becomes two-dimensional, black and white. There is less to look forward too, less to linger on, less to appreciate. When we shift that perspective, and focus on what is beautiful and wonderous in our lives… that is when we attract more magic.

See and Be the beauty that stars in your own life.

Be the grace that you are.

Namaste

Divine Disguise

Divine Disguise: “Some blessings are obvious – the door that opens, the person who says yes and the instant success of an idea. But not all blessings are so instantly recognizable. Some blessings are so veiled that at first you might consider them to be an unwanted development. A concealed blessing is either already at work in your life or on its way to you. Do not worry if you feel like things are not working our as they should. Soon enough, the disguise will be dropped and the blessed unmasked in all its beauty.”

“Blessings are the mysterious workings of the universe, there to help us along our unique life path to live our truths and fulfill our potential. The universe has the knack of knowing just what it is we need, even when sometimes we might think we need something altogether different. This is how it can be that something we resist and reject in our lives can become the very thing we are most grateful for later on. We realize it has been a blessing masked, something actually helping us, even though it might have come in the form of a challenge or struggle before we eventually gain great benefit from it.

The oracle of Divine Disguise brings you a positive message and prediction for your future. It brings you the promise of peace of mind and a realization that the universe does really know what it’s doing. It’s in your corner, on your side, cheering you on and helping you to avoid unnecessary pitfalls, even if you don’t know they exist.

The oracle indicates that the real beauty of a situation isn’t obvious to you yet. It could be  delay or change in plans that turns out to be in your favour, even if at the time you are not sure if it signals failure! If could be the wrong person saying no so the right person can say yes. It could be being blocked from turning back to your past, so you must continue forward into the magic of your future. Whatever your hidden blessing, the oracle of Divine Disguise tells you that you are soon going to realize just how loved and helped you are in all areas of your life.

When this oracle appears you are being told specifically that you don’t need to worry. Even that which appears to be more troublesome is going to reveal itself to be working in your favour.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Say the following aloud:
“The universe, in all its grace,
Removes the mask and reveals its face,
Shining down with love for me,
Helping me become all that I can be.”

Visualize, pretend, imagine or feel that the universe is gazing down at you. You can feel the love the universe has for you, similar to how you feel when your favourite person in the world is smiling at you with a warm smile and loving eyes. You can feel the effect of that love on the inside. You relax. You feel good. You smile back at the universe.
You have fininshed your healing trick.”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and/or evening for a few days or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.

‘Whatever appears to be
The truth revealed is always love helping me.”

Things may feel upside down right now, but it is all for a reason. We can try to control things around us, but sometimes, somehow, things may not feel how we would like them to feel. Things may even be looking like they are going totally sideways. But it is all for a reason. There is a blessing in there somewhere. Still yourself and breathe.

Drop your expectations and expand your vision. What are you not seeing? This is more than a silver lining, it is a gift, and it is something that will make a lasting difference to your future. Open up to the possibilities. Trust in the Universe that things are unfolding in perfect Divine Timing. Trust that whoever needs to come to you is on their way to you now. Let go of what is no longer working and know that there is something much better lined up for you now. All you need to do is make space for the blessing. The rest will all fall into place in ways that you have yet to imagine.

No matter what

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dark Harlequin, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

“Bells are ringing from deep inside.
Something that once had to hide is seeking your attention.
It wants out! It wants to be free!
As you release what was once shut away,
your discomfort shall turn to glee.”

“You are a spiritual adventurer! You are not afraid to go to the edge of what you know, of who you have believed yourself to be. Even when before you there lies the darkness of unknown worlds, of undiscovered parts of you, even when you feel uncertainty, discomfort or doubt, you are still willing (even if you are quaking in your boots) to figure out what it is all about. This fine and fierce attitude gives you a special kind of grace, the grace to discover that you are a living, wild, divinely free and empowered force to be reckoned with in this world. That discovery sets you free from fear and unleashes you upon a path of loving wild creation and joyful abandon!

So you have come to a place in you, and in your life, where you don’t know. You don’t know what’s happening. You don’t know how to work through it. You don’t know who you are (well, not all of who you are). You don’t know what you don’t know.

You are at the point of not knowing because you are growing. There will be surprises. There will be discoveries. You will feel awkward at times, like you are trying to see in the dark.  You will wonder if you are supposed to be so confused, if you are supposed to feel like you are not sure who you are anymore, or even if the things that once made sense in your life are supposed to seem so fragile, as though life, once thought rock solid, actually turns out to be a house of cards. The answer, of course, is yes. Yes, it’s a royally divine mess.

Do not be afraid to let there be some inner rattling and rampaging. The Dark Harlequin card comes to you at a time when you are naturally diving into the darkness for a healing purpose. So ask the difficult questions. Do things you would not normally do. Experiment with thinking in ways you wouldn’t normally think. Be willing to let everything change for the better by first letting go of how things are now. The messier your inner world seems to be right now, the more you can expect complete and utter transformation as a new order comes into form.

Expect the unexpected, for you were born to grow into what is happening now. It is time to let the wild thing within out!”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and or evening for a few days or even a few months:

“The magnificent me once concealed,
In light and love is now revealed.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

Artwork: “Harlequinette” by Maxine Gadd

Life doesn’t start until we step into who we truly are. Until this point, it is still shrouded in illusion. In order to lift the veil, we must bring our shadows up into the light. We must find a way to love and accept every aspect of ourselves, and we must be able to integrate the shadow into the light, finally becoming whole.

Removing the mask takes courage and determination, for the ego has worked hard to protect us from feeling so vulnerable and transparent. Yet herein lies our greatest strength, if only we can allow it to shine forth. Yes, there may be some discomfort when the mask comes off. Yes, it may be awkward; you may feel exposed, raw. But the mask is old, it is worn out. It’s job is done now. You no longer need it.

And when you finally let your true Soul self take it’s place, you will wonder why on earth you wore the mask in the first place!

Namaste

Rainbow DNA

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rainbow DNA, from the Sacred Geometry for the Visionary Path  Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Rainbow DNA: “Conscious Evolution”

“Human DNA uses the Phi ratio to form the wave that spins our genetic codes. Scientists, seeking to unravel the mystery of these codes, observe a mass of unexpressed DNA within the traditional double helix. Labeled by some as “junk” DNA, this additional information epitomizes our highest potential as yet unexpressed. In most humans only about three percent of the is code is currently switched on.

By activating these dormant genes, we find the gateway to an infinite source of evolutionary wisdom. Decoding and activating this full spectrum of insight and understanding creates a rainbow of possibilities that corresponds to the emerging field of conscious evolution. Part of that process is learning the dynamics through which evolution does its transformational work. Through exploration of those dynamics, we can intentionally and wisely apply them to transform ourselves and our world.

Visualize yourself spinning within this beautiful Rainbow DNA, activating your own potential. Draw upon the potent emotions of love and compassion to stimulate the harmonics of your heart and speed your pace of evolution. Each time you act from your heart, you contribute to the intentional conscious evolution of humankind and the healing of Mother Earth.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Do not allow dullness to cloud  your vision. Look to the Rainbow DNA as a symbol of hope for the conscious evolution of all humankind.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Part of the change we are going through, part of this ascension process, is awakening in us our dormant DNA. This opens up hidden gifts, talents and abilities that we only read about in books or see in science fiction movies, it’s pretty amazing stuff! As the two strands open up to become twelve strands of DNA, telepathy, self healing, clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, claircognizance, telekenisis and astral travel, among other gifts become possible. Basically, we get to tap in to our inner Marvel Comic super hero self and perform what has previously been deemed as impossible, or miraculous, on a daily basis. How cool is that?

And we can expedite this process through yoga, meditation, breath work, listening to the Solfeggio frequencies and/or binaural beats, spending time in silence, connecting with the natural world, studying sacred geometry, working with crystals and stones, and making our own music. Various forms of artwork also help to unlock our DNA, particularly if they bring us great joy when we engage in expressing ourselves creatively. In fact, relaxation, joy, happiness, peace and harmony in our every day lives stimulates the activation of this latent DNA, opening and aligning our chakras and auric fields to be open and receptive to the New Earth energies. It is all connected. We can even set the intention each morning before we get out of bed, and each evening before we go to sleep, to work with our angels, guides and higher selves to open and expand our DNA potential.

There is nothing to fear and everything to gain by focusing on our own healing and ascension. We can become portals of love on this beautiful planet, and assist her in her own transformation as we undergo our own. When we work together as One we are so much more powerful than we ever imagined.

It is time, Dear One. This is why you came. Open up to the possibilities.

Namaste

Dee
