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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Staying focused on the Light.

And so it is

Namaste

Eos

Published September 12, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Eos, from the Mythic Oracle, By Carisa Mellado, Artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eos, from the Mythic Oracle, By Carisa Mellado, Artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Eos: “New Beginnings”

The Myth: “Eos is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion (god of light) and Theia (goddess of heavenly light) and the sister of Helios (sun) and Selene (moon). She is the personification of dawn. Each day, she rises out of Oceanus (ocean) and opens the gates of heaven so that Helios can ride through them and illuminate the sky. She is an incredible beauty, with rosy fingers, golden arms, and large, white wings. She is often depicted as wearing a tiara and a yellow dress woven with flowers.”

The Message: “If you have drawn this card, dawn is here. The long, dark night is over, and you stand at the beginning of a new day. This card comes with a burst of new energy, as all possibility is open to you now. This is a good time to start afresh, make plans, hatch ideas, and open up to your rising inspiration.

The time is right for new beginnings, and you will be projecting this into the world. Do not be surprised if opportunities start knocking on your door – unexpected meetings, gifts, or invitations may turn up. Enjoy this period, and allow yourself to be guided by the Universe and your inner voice. A new day has dawned in your life, so celebrate and enjoy it. A journey awaits you!”

~ By Carisa Mellado

The only choice is to start new. Change what needs changing. Resistance is futile. Forward momentum is the only way.

We finish each chaotic month feeling that we must deserve a little reprieve. Only to be thrown into yet even more chaos. Wobbling to get our bearings we stand up and dust ourselves off yet again. We survey the territory. Does it look the same? Can it ever really feel the same?

Change is the only option. Moving forward fearlessly with less baggage than we may have anticipated. A fresh start with less obstacles in the way. Rewriting our story from the depth of our Soul.

See it as a gift; all of it. Each phase of it. Release the pain and meet the new vulnerable and receptive. Honour what the Universe sends your way and your part in attracting it… somehow. Try not to take it all too personally. Try not to attach to it but instead let it all flow to you and through you.

Know that everything is in perfect Divine order. Even if you are feeling like things are not going the way that you would have liked. Just yet.

Have faith. In yourself, in the Universe, in the endless possibility of the now. Choose your thoughts wisely. Channel your energy into your intentions. Use affirmations to keep you on track.

For the Highest Good Of All and So it Is.

Namaste

Serendipity

Serendipity, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Serendipity, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Serendipity ~ Essential Meanings: “Opportunity allied with readiness; the awareness of synchronicity; luck and good fortune appearing as signs and symbols; a magical alignment of events.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have stepped into alignment with the greater good, where your dreams and the collective dream resonate in exquisite harmony. Now is the time for luck and preparation to meet and create miracles that you could never have planned all by yourself. Keep in mind that you are a channel for providence right now, as a higher energy uses you as a force on behalf of the whole world. Your fortune becomes everyone’s fortune. Everything you bring into being now will leave a wondrous legacy for others in the future. Your service to the world is being supported at this time. Expect the unexpected. And smile, for Spirit loves you so very much.”

Relationship Message: “Spirit has a plan, and that plan is to place you in front of the right person at the right time. You have met or are about to meet someone vitally important to your journey, someone Spirit wants to bring into your life. Only Divine forces can plan this meeting – it is out of your hands. Pay attention to the signs Spirit presents.”

Prosperity Message: “You are in the right place at the right time. Be grateful, for the stars are aligned in your favor and fortune is smiling on you. Victory and success are yours. The choices you have made in the past have prepared you for the opportunities now before you. This is your lucky moment. The timing is perfect.”

Protection Message: “Perhaps you felt almost certain that serendipitous events were meant to lead to something better. It was supposed to be the perfect business, or that person you gave your heart to was supposed to be “the one” – yet it all fell apart! Consider this: Sometimes synchronicity and serendipity come together to lead you directly into difficulties in order to deliver an important lesson you need to learn before you hit the jackpot. Do not get caught up in the drama of disappointment. There really is a silver lining in this cloud. Spirit always knows what you need and is guiding you to where you are mean to go. Pay attention to the signs presented to you.”*

~ by Colette Baron-Reid

All the hard work is paying off… in spades! Doors are opening. Life is going to start to feel easier, lighter, freer. Do you accept and receive?

The struggle is over, thank goodness for that! Your only job now is to go with the flow and be the most authentic and true version of yourself. When you do this, you signal to the Universe that you are ready for what is truly yours, becoming the magnet to bring it forth. Manifestation is amplified, opportunity is coming knocking. Be aware, be awake!

You will meet who you need to meet. You will be exactly where you need to be. You will receive the gifts and the blessings that have been headed to you, created just for you.

Set your smile on high beam! Put a little extra skip in your step. Flirt with the Universe. Let it show you it’s best.

And so it is,

With much love and light.

Namaste

The Star

Published August 26, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Star, from The Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, art by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Star, from The Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, art by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Star: “The card of the lucky Star shows there is energy abounding for a fortuitous opportunity to arrive through which one’s hopes and dreams can be manifested. The seven-pointed Faery Star represents the harmony of Land, Water, Sky, Moon, Sun, Stars and Magic. Beneath the Star, the Goddess is revealed in her aspect of Faery Queen, pouring out the waters of life to invigorate and encourage positive changes. She opens the way and offers the chance for a joyful transformation in one’s life, yet leaves it up to the individual to take advantage of this. The card indicates that the prospects are excellent for making a change in one’s life, moving in the direction one has desired but has not yet attained.

Whether one chooses to take advantage of the opportunity can be influenced by the other cards in the reading that may offer helpful clarification. The waters spilled from silver urns into the river and into a gazing bowl for divination suggest that one can gauge the future impact of taking up the opportunity. The Queen stands in the river, indicating that some solutions to problems reside in the subconscious mind. The Star implies that planetary or universal energies are in a favorable alignment at the time of the reading, and the addition of faerie influence provides an aspect of wishes granted through the blessings of devas and other world entities.

There is optimism and hope in this card, which is always an omen of good fortune and bringing desires into reality. The universe will provide the opening to push matters in a favorable direction for accomplishing what is most sought. The energy is gathered in one’s favor. and is ready to be utilized to carry out a goal.

Action should not be delayed any longer than necessary when the opportunity presents itself, for there is no indication of when this will happen again. Trust in the universe, the Divine, and one’s own intuition is suggested. Saint John’s wort, for faeries, magic, luck and power, grows along the riverbank. A goldfish, a symbol of opportunity and balance, leaps joyfully out of the invigorating waters.”

Card Meaning: “An opportunity to manifest hopes and dreams, inspiration, creativity, talent recognized, positive energy, unexpected help, new ideas, gain a wish, positive future, bright prospects, chance to start over.”

As Challenger: “Disappointment, doubts, distrust, insecurity, letting opportunities pass.”

Prompt Words: “Opportunity, hopes obtainable.”*

~ by Ann Moura

The only barrier to your success is anything you believe can stop you from moving forward. Other than that, the coast is clear. Anything is possible.

The Star is a card of a special magic the superstitious call ‘luck’. But really there is no such thing as luck is there? It is about claiming your power and using it for the Highest Good of All, to create something sacred and miraculous. It is about becoming the powerful manifestor you have always been. It is about moving out of the limits of the three dimensional consciousness and into the fourth and beyond, where there is absolutely no doubt that anything is truly possible.

The Star is full of Light. The Star leads our way. The Star is a coming together; the collective, the One that is All. It is faith and it is gratitude and it is Love. It is dreams fulfilled and it is opportunities grasped. It is connected to our crown chakras; our channel of divine communication with our Higher Selves.

Take this as yet another sign that things are changing. Doors are opening. Do not fear necessary change, for with it comes the blessings.

Namaste

Page Of Wands

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page Of Wands, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Page Of Wands: “With confidence and a childlike joy, she plays her instrument, sending forth her message. The cadences dance in swirling melodies, a song of confidence and assurance. The strident beats mark a quick tempo that is irresistible to any who hear it. She smiles, knowing that she is the center of attention as she draws our all the creatures of the woods. Excitement fills the air, and breathless exuberance.

From ether and the nether-realms,
From sea and skies, come to my side!
I summon all to heed this call:
come flock to me! Come run, swim,
Stride!

Page Of Wands is creative and passionate. She is witty, charismatic, and outspoken with her philosophy. She knows her mind and is direct and forthright when she has an opinion. She may be a teacher, eager to pass on that kernel of knowledge that she possesses. She is the fiery spark of initiative, inventive, and she dares you to delve within and seek out the opportunities that may be frightening but have so much potential. Sometimes the actions that push you to the limits of comfort are the most rewarding. She tells you to do and not sit there with only mute desire. Action is what is important. Can you hear her song ringing in your ears? Can you hear its sweet seduction singing with the voice of impulse?”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Creation, manifestation, passion and incentive are all the messages of today’s card. It is about doing, being, advancing, expanding; there is no procrastination here. It is about quick wits and intuition; following your gut instincts and taking colourful and creative action.

Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras are most important now too: confidence, will power, self-belief, self-worth and self-esteem; sensuality and sexuality are all important factors in our lives now. We have the ability to step fully into our true authentic selves. We have the opportunity to align with our dreams and use our deepest passions to paint the canvas of our reality.

Music, art, poetry, wisdom and self-expression all play a part here. Get your creative juices flowing by doing whatever it is that you love to do. In your own unique way of doing it. Communication, teaching, and clarity of vision are key factors to the manifestation of your reality. Make a vision board, research that trip you are dying to go on and print off the info, pin it to your fridge. Look into taking or teaching a course or class. Sign up for a workshop and learn something new.

And most importantly, create with love and with joy. Create with passion and vitality. Infuse love into every aspect of your creation; always leaving space for more and more.

And so it is

Namaste

The Moirae ~ Destiny

Published July 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Moirae ~ Destiny, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Moirae ~ Destiny, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

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.”*

By Carisa Mellado

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.

Namaste

Possum ~ Opportunity

Published July 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Possum ~ Opportunity: “Possum inspires us to see opportunity in any condition and to productively harness all opportunities to our best advantage; to gently ride on the back of any circumstantial generosity afforded us until  we are comfortable established, after which retreat should be executed in an honourable and discreet manner.

To take opportunity by the horns when it is offered is to believe one hundred percent in your total worth and life purpose. To act on every thought and to honour every possibility as potential for growth is what separates successful people from ordinary folk.

Possum urges us to see our life as a foundation on which great things can be initiated. He encourages us to seek out new experiences and attempt new things. Although  the Possum is ideally suited to living in the hollows of trees, the idea of squatting in the roofs of human dwellings poses no moral dilemma for him at all.

If Possum has ambled into your cards today, you are being asked to remember who you are and what agreements you made with yourself before commencing your Earth Walk. What did you want to achieve? Where did you see yourself ultimately?

Pay close attention to the opportunities afforded you at this time, for new ways to develop your abilities and to enhance your growth are on offer right now. Identify and discard all feelings of self-doubt – they simply keep you from furthering your skills and employing your talents to the best of your ability.

Possum’s appearance heralds the chance to better yourself and to take your knowledge deeper. Opportunity knocks for those alert to its presence. So long as you are willing to work hard and apply yourself, it is acceptable to gently ride on the back of any opportunity that is presented to you. The wealth locked within the authentic self is filled with great possibility and all it takes is the courage to access it and birth it into the light of day.

Possum’s appearance in your cards may also mean that you have a freeloader in your midst – someone who is taking advantage of your generosity. The best way to expel a Possum from your roof is to install a sensor-light. Nocturnal by nature, Possums hate bright light, so with lights turning on at the slightest movement they will quickly find an alternate dwelling. Using a similar approach, to illuminate your squatter’s sponging ways, visualize their light turning on (and staying on) whenever they enter their bedroom. They will soon find it impossible to stay as a result.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

Again we are reminded to go within and honour our true authentic Self; our Soul self. What did it come here to do in this lifetime? And most importantly, are you doing it? If not, be aware that an opportunity is coming to you now. This opportunity will put you back on your path. If it seems like it is auspicious and wonderful, you are ready to take things in a new direction, you have done the work and you are ready to move forward. If a challenge arrives, look closely at why this is challenging… where is the silver lining? What are you holding on to that you needed to release but have refused?

Know that when lessons come as challenges it is often because we have not been taking the easy ones! We have either ignored them or been unaware, or we have defied them insisting on staying put where we are. Well, as usual, the Universe… and Your higher self, has other plans!

Possum is not just about opportunity, but he is also an opportunist. He will happily jump out of his comfort zone to get in the flow when an opportunity presents itself. It’s instinct, fast paced decision making on the fly. Trusting your intuition and going for it before the window closes. And this is where the plot twists. If this doesn’t sound like a personal message for you, then it becomes a friendly warning to watch those who are in your life right now. Is someone riding your coat tails? Is someone taking more than they are giving? If so, then it’s time to cut them loose. It’s time for you to take your opportunities without them draining your energy or distracting you from your purpose. Only you will know.

Namaste

Dee
