Dionysus: “Freedom”

The Myth: “Dionysus is the son of Zeus and the mortal Semele. While Semele was pregnant with Dionysus, Hera, disguised as an old woman, convinced Semele to make Zeus prove he was a god. Semele asked Zeus to swear an unbreakable oath to grant her a favor. He agreed, and was thus forced to reveal his true nature when she demanded it. Zeus appeared as a bolt of lightning, and its fire consumed Semele. Zeus saved Dionysus by sewing him into his thigh until it was time for him to be born, giving Dionysus two births.

Dionysus is the wise god of nature, vegetation, wine and music. He embodies the ecstasy and intoxication of unity and the dissolving of barriers. He is known as the liberator, freeing humankind from the chains of the mundane through music, wine, madness and ecstasy.

The Message: “Ecstasy is the transcendence of the ordinary state. It is an altered state of consciousness, a type of trance that moves us beyond our own self-awareness into a unified awareness. This state heightens our thought processes, intensifies our emotions, expands our spiritual awareness, and enhances our physical abilities. Dionysus instigates the trance that ushers us into his realm of ecstatic awareness.

Dionysus represents the freedom of the senses and the liberation of the civil and dutiful mind. His appearance in your cards signifies a deep connection to art, music and poetry and points you toward obtaining freedom through catharsis.

If your life has become overwhelmed by mundane routine, though and existence, Dionysus is here to shake you awake. This is the time for freeing your senses and finding your true voice, your dance. It is a time to break free from the rules of the civil world, to find your own way instead.

If you have drawn this card, liberation is at hand. the key to this liberation will come through deep catharsis – an intense, climactic, emotional experience that leaves you feeling renewed, revitalized, and reborn. The experience will smash the psychological barriers that bind you – the experience of religious or spiritual ecstasy, the total experience of unity with all that is, the ecstatic experience of god within and without.”*

Our society has a twisted sense of ecstasy. As soon as you hear the word, what do you think of? The drug? Illicit sex? Hedonism? It’s all gone sideways and our minds are so used to being in the gutter it’s hard to imagine another realm of reality.

Yet, what if the most pure form or ecstasy is found within our deep connection to the Divine? Is that not what the ancient Guru’s sought in the caves high in the Himalayan mountains? The ecstasy that could only be found when the ego mind was surpassed and our Souls reached out to touch Source energy itself? Ecstasy is not a quickie, it’s not a fast distraction away from responsibility. It can’t be found in a meaningless connection. Ecstasy is the greatest gift we are given; the ability to open ourselves up and receive Unconditional Love.

Ecstasy is stepping past the feeling of stagnancy and lethargy. It is being fully awake and fully aware, present, alive. It is feeling the beat of the music of life with your whole being and all of your senses. It is about throwing yourself into your life with passion and inspiration.

So how do we find it here? We find it through joy and lightness of Being. We find it in Love, both given and received. Not in empty physical connection, but true, heart centered loving sacred union; or through the strength of the bonds love that we feel for our family, pets and friends. We find it when we are passionate about a cause, when we truly step onto our Soul path and become of service. Through refusing to repeat a pattern ad nauseum in our lives, but learning and moving forward. It’s about releasing habits and limiting belief systems, taking risks and opening up to opportunity. It is about grasping life by the horns and riding it wildly, even if that is completely out of character!

Stir things up. Get sensual in your creative self-expression. Get out of your box and fly free for a while. You deserve it, and it will do you a world of good.

Namaste

The Moirae ~ Destiny

The Moirae ~ Destiny

The Myth: “The Moirae are beings of destiny, also known as the Fates. Clotho, the youngest, spins the thread of life, deciding when each being is to be born. Lachesis, the middle sister, measures the thread of life, deciding how long each person or being will live. Atropos, the oldest, cuts the thread of life, deciding how each life ends. These three sister crones spin and weave our destinies.”

The Message: “If you have pulled this card, this is an incredibly magical time for you. Destiny is calling. You may feel prompted to make a leap of faith, unexpected events may occur, inspiration might strike, or you might be about to bring a project to completion. You may even find new romance, receive news about college, become involved in a new activity, or graduation will occur.

Destiny usually brings with it unexpected life-changing events, in which you will find incredible opportunity. These events can come in the guise of something difficult or painful, but do not be fooled – this is a magical time, a culmination of your life so far. It is important to move with the flow. Let your instincts guide you to where you need to be. If you experience painful events, remember to allow yourself a period of grieving, as nothing will feel clear unless you do this.

During life-changing events, it is important that you remain present, clear, and focused. Life often goes through major shifts that are beyond your comprehension and control, but it is still your life, and you control  your reactions. Only your willingness to be responsible for yourself will determine how wonderful these changes turn out to be.”*

Fate. Destiny. Serendipity. There’s something so romantic about it, surrendering as the universe guides us to our Soul Mates, or Twin Flames; we fall into the perfect job; we win a life-changing amount of money or are reunited with a long lost relative. The stuff movies are made of, chick flicks mostly. It’s that warm and fuzzy feeling that everything is going to be ok, if we just go with the flow and trust that it is all going to work out in the end. That there is a reason for everything, and that everything happens for a reason.

This kind of perspective has kept me sane in tough times. It connects us to the Universe through faith, let’s us take action yet give up a little of the control. It helps us to see the silver lining, which is always there. We can move forward knowing that things have a way of working out. We can move forward feeling like we are being supported, guided, loved and protected.

Of course we still need to use our inner wisdom to navigate the people and opportunities that come to us; some will be distractions and some will be the real deal. Use your heart to feel them out.

Trust what it tells you.

Hestia ~ Home

Hestia ~ Home

The Myth: “Hestia is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. Her name means hearth, the sacred fire, and Hestia is the virgin goddess of the sacred hearth. The hearth was at the center of families and tribes. Transferring fire from one sacred hearth to another represented continuing heredity.”

The Message: “This card is all about the warmth and the spirit of the home. It indicates that both home and family are especially important at this time.

Our families are not just our blood relatives, but they are the people who care for and nurture us in our lives and the people for whom we deeply love and care. Our connection to family reminds us of who we are and brings us back to our roots both culturally and personally, giving us a sense of continuity, of being a part of something greater than ourselves. Home is this feeling.

Home is also the ground we create for ourselves: a place of security, peace, and warmth. we rejuvenate ourselves in this place so that we may have the energy to operate in the world.

This is a time for connecting to the nourishing energy of home and family. You can be anywhere in the world to do this; all you need to do is connect to the space within yourself that allows you to feel strong, safe, and warm.

This is a time for creating the right ‘home’ space for yourself. If you feel that your home is contaminated, then you must do whatever is necessary to cleanse it. You cannot hope to operate from a clear space within your life or the world unless you are operating from a clear space within yourself and your home. If you have destructive personalities around you, you must create boundaries and remove these people from your immediate space.

This is also a time to connect to those who are your true heart’s family, to those who love you and remind you of who you truly are.”*

I have just recently had my home, myself and my children cleared by a friend of mine who’s life purpose is to assist in clearing lower vibrational and dense energies from spaces, people, chakras, etc. I am amazed at the difference this has made to our family dynamics (if you are interested in his services, please contact Leith at Rainbow Spiral Energy Spacekeeper directly). I was also inspired to clean and clear out all the old, take a few things down off the walls, donate things that we no longer need. In combination, it has made an enormous difference to generally improve the chi of the space, I feel fantastic and the kids have noticed a difference too. 

This is a great time to look at anything in your living space that does not hold a positive or higher vibrational energy. Get rid of anything that does not serve a purpose and just clutters up the space. It is also time to look closely at relationships and assess if there is anyone in your life right now who is doing more harm than good. All of these things have an effect on us, body, mind and spirit. If you are not sure, look for signs: does an object, space or person make you feel drained, frustrated, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you feel repelled or like you should flee the situation? Do you feel that you are being used or your energy is being sucked away? All these are signs that there is unhealthy or toxic energy in your presence.

It is also important to create boundaries with people who ask too much of you. Learn to say no, learn to walk away and learn that you are not here to “fix” someone, you can support them, but you are not responsible for their behaviour or their choices, (unless they are dependents such as disabled, elderly or small children and need your care and assistance of course). You can guide people or advise them, but you cannot compromise yourself for them. Creating healthy boundaries allows people to learn the lessons they are meant to learn in their own time. It also allows (or forces) them to take responsibility for their own behaviour. And you for yours.

Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration

Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration

The Myth: “The Titaness Mnemosyne, daughter of Gaia and Uranus, is the personification of memory. She and Zeus are the parents of the nine Muses, who are beings of inspiration. Their existence shows that memory and divinity combine to create true inspiration.”

The Message: “Memories hold all that we know about life and ourselves. Memory is the sacred record keeper of our lives, yet memory and actuality are often different. Actuality is the account of facts, while memory is about how we internalize these facts and how we have experienced our lives, neither being truer than the other.

The divine is the essence of life itself – the universal experience that binds us together – and exists both beyond and within ourselves. It is the consciousness of nature and the cycles of nature; life, death, truth, and love.

When this universal essence blends with your inner realm of interpretation and experience (your personal reality), you receive inspiration. Symbols come to life, sounds open inner doorways, and words become keys to unlocking the otherwise overwhelming experience of life.

If you have drawn this card, then you are being touched by inspiration now. All that you have gathered from your life, as well as all that you feel from life, is awakening in your mind now. New worlds and opportunities are opening up within you.

Make sure you really experience what you are feeling now. The inspiration you receive at this time comes from a divine place and speaks of a truth that is not only personal but also universal. Write down ideas and follow them through into actions. New possibilities are opening to you, and you must grab this feeling by the reins and let it take you to new places. Nurture inspiration in your life; surround yourself with things that bring you to life. Spend time in nature, dance, be creative. Above all, listen to the whispers on the wind, for they are leading you to behold the limits of all you have previously known.”*

The full moon called for a shift in perspective, one of those necessary shifts. One that you can come along nicely with, or one that will drag you kicking and screaming through the finish line. Ya, it’s that important.

Because what is on the other side of this shift is inspiration, pure and sparkling bright. If your pilot light has felt dimly lit lately, it has the potential to sizzle. If you shift that pesky perception, that is…

Memories and feelings and experiences all wrapped into neat little packages and stored in our physical bodies will require a gentle unwrapping and bringing out into the Light. It will require a truce between fact and emotional fiction. An acknowledgment, an embrace, a forgiveness and a great release. What else is possible?

Inspiration, passion, ignition, co-creation. Past lives blending together into one. Karma released. Body, mind and spirit healed, awakened, ascending. Ready.

Namaste
