Daily Angel Oracle Card: Queen Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Queen Of Earth Keywords: “Earth Mother, Pragmatic, Real, Kind, Nurturing, Abundant, Fertile Mind, Wise.”

Key Phrases: “Touch, connect, and create with your hands. Be supportive and nurturing. Seek out a motherly role model. A need for wise and honest counsel. Kindness is required. You are loved and supported. Mother, do not smother. Share the responsibilities.”

Queen Of Earth card meaning: “The Queen Of Earth symbolizes a real, authentic, earth mother personality. She is larger than life and possesses an abundant, generous and grounded nature.

She is realistic, but also sees magic everywhere. She is an earth mother who spends a great deal of time covered in soil, and is not unknown for her to walk around oblivious to the leaves and twigs in her hair.

She adores creating a warm and inviting home where all are welcome. Cooking, cleaning and gardening  – these are things she loves, and she enjoys them all the more because of her tactile and sensual nature. She is a woman who loves nothing more than using her hands to touch, connect and create.

The Queen Of Earth is the epitome of kindness; she will offer support, and nurture your every endeavour, while also offering wise and honest counsel.

She comes to ask if this is how you see yourself. Or have you been so focused on business undertakings and career that you have created an imbalance in your life and disconnect from your true nature? Is it time for you to enjoy the benefits of being a homebody for a while? Maybe a home cooked meal, or a weekend out in the garden is on the agenda, instead of meetings and reports.

The Queen Of Earth may also appear in your reading at times when you find yourself in need of a gentle reminder to be both nurturing and supportive of those around you. While you encourage and support others in their desire to better themselves, remember to do so without trying to change them.

In her role as wise-woman, she may be asking that you  seek out those who embody her energy. Perhaps there is a need for you to connect with a motherly role model at this time. Maybe all you need is a hug, but you may also be facing issues that her fertile mind and natural wisdom can help you with. A little motherly advice may unlock an answer and provide a solution.”

Potential Blockage: Queen Of Earth as Challenger will appear in our reading for two reasons. The first is to caution against making the home a hiding place, where you shut out those who care about you. Yes, we all need a sanctuary, but our periods of isolation should always be temporary. The Queen Of Earth seeks to remind you that you are not meant to be alone; there are people who love you and support you. Let them in.

The Queen Of Earth as Challenger may also be cautioning you against smothering those around you. There is a difference between mothering and overwhelming, or worse, disempowering someone through too much care and attention. Take a step back and allow those around you to act for themselves. In fact, encourage them to act for themselves. You might enjoy what you do for others, but there comes a time when those around you must learn to look after themselves, or at least share in the household responsibilities.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

If you are feeling scattered, distracted or disconnected, you are being called back to ground and reconnect with the Earth herself. That part of you that embodies the Earth Mother. Slowing down and finding your roots again. Get outside barefoot on the Earth. Breathe the fresh air. Take the time to stop, look, smell and love each and every flower you pass. Feel the wind in your hair. Count the stars. Host a picnic with some close friends or family and make it technology free!

We are so overwhelmed with media and technology. So much chaos going on in the world, it is easy to feel like  you are drowning in it. Add responsibilities, work, paying the bills and we can create this little spiral of worry, angst and fear. The natural world is the only solution. The Mother is calling you home.

What can you do today to reconnect with Her? Can you get outside, soles of your feet on the grass and face tilted up to the sky? Can you take a walk on the beach, toes in the sand? Even just sitting in the sun for a few minutes can give you a boost of energy and vitality. Add some nice, deep slow breaths. Maybe some movement, yoga, flowing, dancing, stretching. Back against a tree, eyes closed, just Being.

Do that and reconnect. Come back to the present moment. Back to yourself.

Namaste

Cultivation

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Cultivation, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Cultivation: “Listening to music can heal, encourage, and nurture your soul.”

“Your spirituality is an essential part of who you are, and it forms the framework of your world. Music resonates with the human spirit. At the heart of humanity is the song of the soul. Music has the power to unite communities, cultures, and civilization. Listening to music can heal, hearten and support your soul.

Studies have found that musical tones communicate with and have an energetic impact on the cells and organs of the human body. It is believed that the cells vibrate and essentially have their own musical intonations. Listening to music can help heal and uplift your energy. You may find that by tuning into uplifting or calming music, you create space for greater contemplation and, in turn, gain more clarity about what you are creating in your life. It can also bring about a stronger connection to your higher self or to oneness.

Music cultivates community as sound fosters communication and greater unity. Cultivation is a continual process that develops, encourages, and nurtures. There is a spiritual connection that forms between the music and the listener. Ganesha is inviting you to incorporate music into your life in a way that will augment your spiritual expansion. Listen to soothing music while you prepare for your day. Move away from the noise of excessive electronics and digital images and back to a more melodic existence. Take time to sit and listen to music. Doing this can shift your energy to a clearer and more receptive state.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Music has always been a vital part of our many civilizations across the planet. Music is a way that we can bridge the gap between cultures. Music can bring us together emotionally, triggering in us deep emotional release. Music is an integral part of marking a celebration, or honouring those who have passed. Think about the importance of music in movies, as it can get your heart beating fast when the killer is about to strike or tears flowing when lovers reunite.

Music has incredible healing properties that we are only just beginning to understand. The power of sound vibration can be used to kill diseased cells, promote growth in healthy cells and create the perfect balance within the energy centers or chakras of the body, promoting health and well being. 

Music can calm or stimulate the mind, assisting us in meditation, greater memory retention, and better connection between the logical and emotional parts of the brain. It can actually assist us in dealing with trauma and heal lingering emotional pain. It is proven that making music assists in the creation of new neural pathways; opening parts of the brain that would otherwise lay dormant. Yes, that means it quite literally makes you smarter.

But not all music is created equal. If you want to amplify the benefits of healing, bringing together the body, mind and spirit, it is suggested that you listen to Solfeggio or Binaural beat music,  based on the principle of Entrainment, which coaxes the brain to match the vibrational frequency of the music, promoting healing, sleep or altered states of consciousness.

Bring music into your world today. Get intimate with it. Put in some headphones and listen to the Solfeggio frequencies, there are many free on Youtube. Experiment with using this music to assist you in calming the mind, releasing stress, and healing the body. Let it move through every cell of your body. If you are able to experiment with making music, or participating in listening to or participating in a live music session with gongs, crystal bowls, hand pans, drums or any of the other magical instruments of the world… even better.

Namaste

Unconditional Love ~ The Divine Mother

Unconditional Love ~ The Divine Mother, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Jason Mccredie

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Unconditional Love ~ The Divine Mother, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Jason Mccredie

Unconditional Love ~ The Divine Mother: “Thank you Divine Mother for helping me to give and receive the love I deserve.”

General Meaning Of The Card: “You are blessed to receive the guidance and support of the Divine Mother at this time. Her nurturing and loving spirit fills your energy like a cup so that you can feel whole again. Together with her Angels, she knows that at times you can feel unloved and find it difficult to share your love with others. She is here to help you to see that it is just as blessed to give as it is to receive. You have given so much of yourself in life and love – now it is time to receive.”

Expanded Interpretation Of The Card: “You are never too old to be mothered, and the Divine Mother sends her blessings to you at this time so that you can feel wrapped and secure in her love. You are being encouraged to love  yourself and to see that you are deserving of love so that the Divine Mother can work with your Angels to bring healing and miracles into your life. You are a being of unconditional love – it is natural to love and be loved because it is who you are.”

The Divine Mother: “The Divine Mother is the divine mothering energy that runs through every belief system in the world. In India she is seen as Shakti and Parvati, in the East she is seen as Quan Yin and in many other places she is seen as Mary. Whatever you call this energy, she exists within us all. In this case the Divine Mother is Mary, the Queen of the Angels. Whatever face or name you give her, she will be there for you in your time of need.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Today practice opening up, becoming a vessel for Love. Divine Love, Unconditional Love, Self Love, Family Love, Romantic Love. Love in every possible aspect. Be that Love. Pull it down from the Universe, feel it come down through the crown of your head, right through all your Chakras and energy centers and right out through the soles of your feet into the Earth, our Great Mother. Channel it, amplify it and radiate it. We need you now.

See the energy of love, the rose gold light from the heart center, reaching out and connecting to something much larger than yourself. Creating a grid across the planet, connecting to each and every creature, each plant, each tree, every living being. See the healing force, the thread of light. An energy of transformation and change.

Expanding, healing, receiving. Connecting.

Mother Mary sees no limitations in the Loving of every single one of us. She is the embodiment of Unconditional Love. She surrounds us with her loving embrace, no matter who we are, where we are at. We are her children, and she loves us as so. Receive her love. Open up to it. Feel its transformational quality. Know that the more you open to her, the more you can be a vessel for this love, assisting in connecting each one of us to it.

Light a pink or white candle for Mother Mary today. Say a prayer of gratitude. Declare your intention to open to more love in your life.

I AM ready to receive more love in my life now.

I AM Love.

Namaste

Milk And Honey

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Milk And Honey, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Milk And Honey: “The taste of prosperity; opportunities born of authenticity; nurturing abundance; trusting that your needs will be met.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have entered a sweet time in your life, enjoying the ‘land of milk and honey’ that everyone wants to experience. It is an interlude that feels more languid than ambitious, when all your senses are awake to the unlimited possibilities in the universe. These times are precious and only come when you are in your authentic zone, ‘wearing the world as a loose garment,’ not wanting, yet about to be nourished in ways both tangible and subtle. Abundance is an energy that you are a living part of. All your needs are being met. You are given the gift of nourishment in every form.”

Relationship Message: “Sensuality, connection and passionate romance between lovers; sweet moments of understanding; and love among friends and family are all here for you to savor now. Your heart’s calling will be answered. Let your thoughts and feelings be sweet with gratitude and you will be nourished with the honey of abundance.”

Prosperity Message: “There is only one authentic you. This version of your Self is Spirit’s emissary in the world. When you are in alignment with the truth that you are a unique expression of the Divine, your ego can rest and your Soul can illuminate your purpose. Now is the time when you are seeking your true north. When you find this direction,  you automatically step into prosperity and the world brings you evidence of abundance. Miracles are a choice and a way of seeing the world. With every choice you make right now, you have the potential to seize good fortune and embrace your destiny. Opportunities will lead you to your best life now. Be open to them. You are getting a sweet taste of what you want.”

Protection Message: ” A nameless unease compels you to turn to pleasure and comfort as a means to escape that is really going on. It works in the moment, but only fleetingly – before the feelings return and you need to re-up until you are exhausted. Feeling worse than before, you may continue struggling… or you may see the light and choose to surrender to Spirit. Now is the time for practicing extreme self-care. If you can, do so before you engage in behaviours you will regret later. You are so loved, so cared for. Feel love and compassion for yourself. Turn your troubles over to the Divine for healing. That is all that counts right now.”*

~By Colette Baron-Reid

Interestingly this is the second time this card has come this year. First we were entering the third month of 2017 with a message of prosperity, abundance, and miracles. Here we are again with the last eight weeks of the year in front of us, and the same message. This is a great way to end this pivotal year.

Again we are reminded that the energies are shifting again and anything and everything is possible. Over the next three months, windows of opportunities will open… and then close. It is up to you to take advantage of them or let them pass you by. Do not over analyze, if something tugs at your heart, grasps your interest or inspires passion, take a leap of faith. If it doesn’t feel right, know that something (or someone!) better is coming and don’t let the wrong person or opportunity block you way.

Things could look really different by the end of 2017 if you allow them to, it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone, bypassing fears and grabbing the bull by the horns… quite literally. It is about bringing your wishes, dreams, hopes and desires into reality without focusing on perceived obstacles, doubts or fears that could hold you back.

Get out of your comfort zone. Create with passion. Put yourself out there. Do not hang back or hold back. You are still creating the next nine year cycle and there are less than 90 days to do so! Use every day as the gift that it is. Hold your intention to be for the Highest Good Of All.

Breathe life into your dreams.

Namaste

She of the Cruach

Published April 3, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

She of the Cruach, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: She of the Cruach, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

She of the Cruach: “The Receptive Principle, Nurturing, Fertility”

“This is the Great Goddess, the many named mother of All and all goddesses are attributes or aspects of Her. Her cup, the Cruach, overflows with bounty for all. She is the yin energy of the Universe – nurturing, compassionate, and wise. She gives form and brings into manifestation the will and life force of He of the Fiery Sword. His is the intention, the action, and hers is the manifest reality. In a sense, she is the Cruach holding all the worlds within her being.

One Oracle group member saw the Cruach as a great bowl, like a scrying tool for seeing past, present, or future potential, but filled with energy instead of water. Within it he saw a tower with a moon above it, a farmhouse, and many other bits and pieces of our world. He felt that if you dropped something in the water, these things would scatter out to become reality – archetypes manifesting everywhere. He said, ‘She is the woman who dreams, and her dreams are the worlds and all that is in them.’

Looking at this card, another Oracle group member also notes, ‘What I see here is the energy of being held lovingly in the palm of the hand of teh great goddess, followed by a relaxed sigh and release.”

She of the Cruach is the holder of all of our sorrows and all of our joys. Her Cruach, the miraculous chalice, is the womb of birth and the caldron of rebirth, the chalice of healing, the container holding the germinating seed. She is the body, the soul-shrine that holds the spirit and keeps it from being lost or dissipated in a formless fog. She is pattern and form in the abstract and in the specific. Within her we take form, grow, achieve fulfillment, and let go of that form to move on to the next phase of our being.

All of the universe, each individual particle, every being, is cherished by her.”

Starter Reading: “She of the Cruach may indicate a form of pregnancy, a necessary time of nurturing and of development. We need to be open to her overflowing grace. She may also indicate a need to allow her nurturing grace to flow through us to others in the form of unconditional love and giving and spiritual healing. She tells us of the need for unconditional receiving, of making the best of what we are offered. She also reminds us that unbounded love and grace is ours, just waiting to be accepted.

The presence of this card radiates comfort and nurturing.”

She of the Cruach as Challenger: “Like He of the Fiery Sword, and all of the other Singers, She does not have a challenger meaning as such. She fills the universe ans is available to all. Challenger here speaks of her archetypal energy blocked or unaccepted by the querent or another involved in the issue. The Question we need to ask ourselves is ‘How may I free this energy of acceptance and nurturing in my life and allow it to flow through me?’*

~ By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Another gift from the land of Faery, how blessed we are to receive it. The Divine Feminine comes to us now, as the Divine Masculine has done; in order to assist us in our time of healing and transformation. We are being asked to be receptive to the love that is on offer to us now; Unconditional Love met with Unconditional Receptivity. This is the balm to our wounded hearts; this will bring our strength back, and give us the courage to go on.

Plant your seeds (thoughts, intentions, goals, hopes and dreams) with care and know that they are being tended to and nurtured for you. Know that they are nurtured, supported and loved into Being. For the Divine Mother is the creator of the manifest reality. She is the holder of space for all of our dreams to come true. In her infinite womb she holds pure potential; it is our job only to learn to receive it.

This is the perfect time to set up an alter outside in honour of these sacred beings; He of the Fiery Sword and She of the Cruach. A Faery ring containing flowers and crystals and sacred objects that hold importance to you. Set it up with reverence, with gratitude and with joy; knowing that you are blessed in ways that will unfold before your eyes very soon. Embrace this time of fertility and have patience for the gestation of your dreams to come to fruition.

And so it is

Namaste

Ishtar ~ Boundaries

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ishtar ~ Boundaries, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ishtar ~ Boundaries: “Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your energy”

Message From Ishtar: “A sincere desire to give of service is wonderful. However, there is a distinction between giving of yourself and giving up yourself. If you feel tired, guilty, or resentful while helping others, then you are not truly helping them, are you? You are injecting poisonous energies into the relationship, and then no one benefits. Step back and reassess the situation. As you respect your own boundaries, others will begin to recognize and respect them within you, and within themselves as well. Now that is a healthy behavior to teach others!”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You are giving too much. Become more assertive. Do not do things out of guilt or obligation.”

About Ishtar: “She has been worshiped and invoked since ancient Babylonian times as the embodiment of Venus’s womanly energy. Ishtar represents the Divine feminine in all of her aspects, including nurturing, mothering, sensuality, fertility, healing, protection, and wisdom. As a multidimensional goddess, Ishtar does not tire of helping the men and women who call upon her for assistance.” *

~ By Doreen Vitue, Ph.D

Boundaries are so important and it is imperative that you work on yours now. You cannot let your energy be sapped by others, or by spreading yourself too thin. This is a powerful time of manifestation, and you will become a beacon of light to those who wish to have what you are creating. It is important to know the difference between inspiring and empowering others, and being taken advantage of. Not everyone wants to put in all the hard work that you have put in; maybe they are stuck in “victim mode” and believe that circumstance has robbed them of their true birthright. Maybe there is someone who is jealous or envious of what you have, and rather than working hard to create the same for themselves, they seek to take what is yours.

Do not let these energies scare you, and remember that you are always in complete control of your own energy. Protect yourself by creating boundaries, both physical and energetic. You can physically distance yourself from people who do not resonate with you, who are negative towards you, have toxic behaviors or who are always blaming or complaining. Even if you feel guilty for taking a step back, this is exactly what you must do at this time. In fact, by doing so, you are actually doing them a favour – instead of enabling, you are empowering them by forcing them to tackle their own lives instead of focusing on yours.

Energetically, you can use protective stones, such as obsidian, black tourmaline and labradorite (to name just a few) to protect your energy. These stones can be worn or carried to create an energetic barrier between you and others. Be sure to cleanse them regularly. You can also create crystal grids in you home to protect it and keep the energy positive and uplifting, or place crystals such as clear quartz or apophyllite in the corners of a room.

Namaste

We are entering the third month of 2017 with a message of prosperity, abundance, and miracles! This is great news!

The energies are shifting again and anything and everything is possible at this time. Over the next month, you will have several opportunities to expand in new directions. Watch for new people entering your life; watch for invitations to events, classes or workshops you have not before attended; and watch for doors being opened for you in various aspects of your life, both personally and professionally.

Things could look really different at the end of this month if you allow them to, it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone, bypassing fears and grabbing the bull by the horns… quite literally.

The slogan for this month could be “Go for it!” Remember we are shaping the next nine year cycle all year in 2017; whatever directions we go and choices we make will affect us for years to come. Do not sit quietly waiting for life to happen “to” you while doing the same routines, being around the same people and staying in the same ruts.

Start with a big shift in what you believe to be possible and run with it from there; the snowball starts from inside us, our thoughts, beliefs and intentions. As we focus our energy we start the momentum. As we say YES to the Universe, we get the ball rolling. As we take new opportunities and create a new life for ourselves, the snowball takes on a life of it’s own, growing and growing. The possibilities are endless.

Take your world and use it to create your dreams.

For the Highest Good of All and so it is.

Namaste

Dee
