Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals: “Dedication, Process”

“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life”
~ Greg Anderson

“In a larger metaphysical sense, our journey through life is said to be full of transformation from an imperfect, corruptible state towards a perfect, healthy and everlasting state. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Thus painful or difficult changes that we endure can in theory burnish us in a spiritual sense to a high, golden shine. We can also seek out knowledge, opportunity and challenge; it is not necessary to merely allow life to happen to us.

In this scene, an Alchemist serves as an analogy for striving to achieve an end goal through study, experimentation, dedication and perseverance. His facial markings trace the beginning and end points of his quest from base lead through its various stages of purification of the soul to gold. The symbol for gold appears in the center of his forehead, where the Third Eye chakra is perceived to be.

This card is a reminder to stay focused on the goal and to continually apply the required self-discipline. It will all be worth it in the end.”*

 ~ By Ciro Marchetti

Be mindful that there may be people or situations around you at this time that trigger you. They may trigger sadness, pain or fear; they may trigger worry or self-doubt. These are all coming up for a reason, they are little hurdles along your journey; challenges that you must learn to turn from lead to gold in order to move forward. When you are feeling triggered, suddenly stressed or frustrated or angry or sad, instead of stuffing it and putting on a mask, look at the situation with detachment and compassion. What did the person do or say to trigger you? Why are you allowing yourself to feel triggered by this? What other reactions are possible at this time? What lesson was learned from the past experience that holds the power to trigger you? How do you release yourself once and for all from the ties that have bound you to this lesson? Once you gain clarity you can find a way to bless, release and move forward.

This is a great time for journaling, getting it all out on paper can give you perspective and is a much more powerful tool than seeking advice or complaining to friends or loved ones. When we write it all out, we force ourselves to see the problem from all angles, and then we are also called to use our own deep wisdom to solve it. When we allow ourselves the time and space to do this, we can listen to our own heart’s to guide us, rather than being guided by someone else. We take control, and we heal ourselves.

Do not let yourself get off course, this is only a speed bump, and you are being challenged for a reason. When you solve this, and truly learn to let it go, you will never be triggered by it again. This is one step closer to your manifestation.

Stay the course on your quest, Spiritual Warrior.

Become the Alchemist.

Namaste

Blue Heron

Blue Heron, from the Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson, Illustrated by Angela Werneke

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Blue Heron, from the Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson, Illustrated by Angela Werneke

Blue Heron:  “Self-Reflection”

“Blue Heron… Thank you, Sacred Waterbird,
For sending reflections to me;
The mirrors of the quest for life,
The worlds that live inside of me.

Show me how relationships work,
With my path woven within the whole.
The lessons of kinship with all life,
Reflecting my spirits eternal goal.”

“Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and facing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought. Heron flies over those who are unaware of who they are and where they belong in the world. Gently dropping a blue feather to them, Heron asks that they follow their intuition and begin the empowering journey of self-realization.

If the great Blue Heron has flown into your cards today, it is urging you to dive into the watery world of feelings to seek your truth. Heron teaches you to develop your self-reflective skills so that you may come to know yourself in an intimate way. Looking at yourself through the filmy lens of self-importance, the cloudy perceptions of low self-worth, or the myopic eyes of self-pity, you will never understand your true potential or appreciate the opportunities that appear.

Heron asks that you examine yourself with a cold eye to see what you wish to improve and how you want to change. If you get stuck in the process, it may be a sign that you are being too hard or critical. Choosing to blame others and constantly pointing a finger at life’s situations, instead of claiming responsibility for your actions, shows that you lack the courage to face the enemy within.

Heron medicine people are willing to look at themselves and see the truth of their motives, actions, feelings, dreams, goals, inner strengths and inner weaknesses. In balancing those truths, Heron’s medicine shows you how to meet the challenges of your personal weaknesses and how to continue developing the skills that lead to inner strength and certainty of purpose.

Are you willing to dive into the watery depths of your own feelings and discover the role of your spiritual essence? Heron is now calling you to delve deeper, to know yourself, and to trust your path. Like the Phoenix, who rises from its own ashes, Heron emerges from the unseen worlds of spirit into a new balanced sense of self in order to embrace its potential again and again.

The magnificence of your human spirit lies waiting for the joy of discovery, if you are courageous enough to follow the waterbird throughout the journey. Heron reminds you that every traveler on life’s journey is a messenger, and that every destination is the beginning of a new life cycle on the Medicine Wheel.”

As Challenger: “Surprise! It may be time to come up for air if Heron arrives as challenger. Too much self-reflection can lead to self-obsession or a morbid sense of humor. If you have been looking within and criticizing yourself, watch out! It is imprudent to drown the sense of joy that usually accompanies the journey of self-discovery. You may have assumed the attitude that perfection is desirable. That may be what advertisers sell you, but that attitude leaves no room to be human. Oops! You learn some of your most valuable lessons through your mistakes. Wouldn’t life be boring if everyone was a plastic clone of an ideal human?

Challenger Heron also reminds you that self-improvement is best accomplished by balancing the desire to change with gentle discernment. There are many layers of truth to understand, and wholeness is impossible to attain in one dive. You do belly flops when you become judgmental, rigid, and flat. Diving deeply into your feelings, you may emerge renewed. But, being too critical, merely floating on top of the water, you will callously break your spirit in the process. Heron reminds you to dive deeply, but do not hold your breath while waiting for instant or total enlightenment. If  you do not resurface for air, the collective feelings of humanity and the infinite depth of eternity can drown you.”*

~ By Jamie Sams and David Carson

This message is asking us to remove the layers of the past that could be getting in our way of gaining clarity for the future. We need to remove the lens we are looking through, give it a good clean. This will allow us to see through all the illusions that we have allowed to cloud our vision. Past pain or experience, trauma, hurt feelings, feelings of lack and belief systems all need to be looked at very closely at this time. What is it that you are holding on to, that is weighing you down. Heron is asking you to release all unnecessary cargo, for it is time to soar.

There is no point holding anyone else responsible for what you have been through, let all that go, it is time for a fresh start, a clean slate. But only you can clear your slate, it cannot be done for you. Only you can awaken to the fact that in actuality, your slate has always been clean, from one moment to the next. We are the ones who fill it with our limitations, boundaries, and beliefs.

This is the perfect time to incorporate your “why” into what you are intending to create. Finding your “why” is powerful, it allows you to get really honest with yourself. Why do you desire what you desire? Is it for the Highest Good of All? If so, move forward fearlessly.

However, if there is any shred of: showing someone what you are truly capable of;  proving yourself right or someone else wrong;  living up to someone else’s expectations of you; or doing something out of spite, revenge or even compromise… then maybe it is time to re-evaluate and get really clear on what you want, and why you want it. Only then can you bring it into being.

Once you decide what it is that you want, even if it is just a feeling or a state of mind or being, then you can start to create it.

Getting really honest with yourself is the only way to start.

Namaste

Building Blocks

Building Blocks, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Building Blocks, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

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

Building Blocks: ” Strong foundations; a beautiful work in progress”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have everything you need to cultivate an extraordinary life. This is a time when your focus needs to be on the foundations you build upon. Your work, your relationships, and your very being are underwritten by your values, ethics, morals, and core beliefs. Are they still true for you? Will they stand the test of time and serve as the solid grounding upon which you construct  your life? Now you are making changes that will affect everything in a positive way. Your destiny is truly a remarkable and beautiful design.”

Relationship Message: “When you see this card, know that you are attracting new relationships into your life – and solidifying the ones that you already have – by building them on the foundations of honesty, humility, clear communication and a genuine desire to know one another. You are moving toward laying the groundwork for a relationship with the firm footing that will ensure it can withstand any storm. Long-standing relationships are also repaired and strengthened. You and the other person are stronger, wiser, and more powerful together than apart.”

Prosperity Message: “You have everything you need to turn iron into gold in the alchemical process of creating the prosperous life you desire. Now is the time to build on the strong foundation you have already laid for your prosperity. Keep in mind that these building blocks are imbued with the sparkling energy of your intentions. Own your dream, and remember that you always have more than enough and you always are enough, so abundance is ever present. Your creativity is Divinely inspired, and the design for your life is taking shape in service to the world. You are meant for success.”

Protection Message: “Now is the time to address the cracks in the foundations of your life. Perhaps your values have changed and it is time to strengthen your convictions and let go of the things that no longer serve the vision you have for your life. Or perhaps you chose to ignore the signs that a situation or agreement you have entered into is not right for you. Remove the rotten pieces and reinforce your core moral strength and integrity. Now is the time for rigorous honesty, for you are called to renovate and upgrade your consciousness! You will be so happy when you do. Spirit has a spectaular blueprint for your life far beyond your imagination. Do not be afraid to replace what is not solid.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This message ties in with the numerology and astrology we see at this time. As I have mentioned before, we are in a “one” year in numerology, having finished a “nine” year of completion in 2016. We also have all the planets in alignment for another two weeks or so, until Feb 6th. So, this is an extra auspicious time for us to set ourselves up for not only the rest of this year, but the entire nine year cycle we are embarking on starting right NOW. Phew, no pressure!

But this is not about pressure, or about jumping in, it is about setting clear intentions and building solid foundations . It is about goals and dreams and manifestation, and it is about taking responsibility for creating our own reality. There is no putting it off; it is just not an option to see yourself as a victim of circumstance; and it is no longer an option to not show up for yourself and your life. No one but you can take the reins. If you have given your personal power away and let others make your decisions for you, then it is time to take back your power. Now. If you have been hiding behind distractions and drama, or numbing yourself with self-medication… it is time to wake up and move forward fearlessly.

Remember, you have everything you need to turn lead into gold.

Namaste

Our Lady Of Great Power

Published January 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Our Lady Of Great Power, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our Lady Of Great Power, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Great Power, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our Lady Of Great Power: “My robes form the heavens above. In my sacred feet, the earth spins. In my eyes, the stars of the night sky are born and shine. My hair forms galaxies, and in my heart, many suns burn with divine love. What is there that could be greater than I? I that am all. I that am love. Any fear? Any doubt? Any problem of concern? I hold you in my being so vast. There is nothing more powerful than I. I am the love that is all that you are.”

“Fear can loom so large at times that it might seem impossible to conquer. Doubt, despair, grief and rage may take possession of our being, and all of a sudden, there is no way out of the negativity or horror that we may be brave enough to feel.

As part of our honest, emotional, human journey, we are asked to feel these challenging emotions. They are part of what helps us rally the courage and strength to make choices that are helpful and healing to our planet, whenever we can. If we cannot feel the horror of what is happening around us, we might lack the passion needed to summon all our strength to act, to heal, to help and to speak out.

It takes a truly great leader to be a great warrior for love on this planet. This leader does not give us false hope, or imaginings that all the problems that need solving will just magically ‘go away’ if we close our eyes and hope hard enough. Instead this leader inspires us with genuine encouragement and empowerment. This leader is honest about our healing light really being needed on this planet. There are environmental and socio-economic problems  on this planet that are not alright, and will need to fall apart so that healing can occur for the greater good. Without that honest conscious acknowledgment that there is great wounding in our world that needs repair, we can be left with an undercurrent of anxiety, a feeling that something is wrong but it is not being openly acknowledged. Without this acknowledgment, constructive solutions are not being implemented. We must be careful that we do not allow our genuine optimism, which keeps us open and active, to become a source of falsehood. We must not allow it to tell us that nothing need happen and everything is fine, when the Divine Mother tells us that this is not true at all! We need to be honest with ourselves and our suffering. We need not fear it, we nee dot be aware of it and through that awareness, healing can occur.

Yet we also need that leader to inspire us with genuine hope and self-esteem, which helps us feel empowered to be able to make a difference. This will prevent us from collapsing into despair, believing that nothing can change – whether in our own lives, or in the world around us.

Our Lady Of Great Power comes with a special message from such inspired spiritual leadership, which is the leadership of the heavenly Mother herself. She tells us that no matter what we may be trying to accomplish upon the earth, she has power to assist us towards success and that power is beyond any obstacle. No matter whether a personal matter, a social matter or environmental issue, legal or financial issue, spiritual crisis or beloved other that needs helps, we can pray to her and she will provide us with what is needed. Our job is to act on that with trust; praying, listening, responding, waiting, acting, reflecting. This is how we live with her, in her grace, and in the magnificence of her great power.

She asks now that you dispense with any habits or beliefs that it all must be accomplished on your own. She knows that you have struggled to find the support you have needed at times in your past and she asks you to put that behind you now. It helped you grow strong and develop self-reliance but your task is different now. You have that strength and enough self-awareness to know who you are and what has meaning for you. You know to remain true to yourself, even if you are in partnership or collaboration, joining forces with others. You are beings asked to allow yourself to be helped so that you can become an empowered channel for her grace to reach the world. So pray. Be open. And know that she is powerful beyond measure.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Do not get swept up in the fear around you; instead, mindfully rise above it. We are no good to anyone, including ourselves if we give away our power. Yes the world is upside down right now… and there is no clear path back to right side up at this moment. Yes there are some scary things taking place; things that make us feel vulnerable and afraid. Yes there are things that we would change in a heartbeat, yet seem beyond our control. But wallowing in fear and insecurity will not help to shift and change reality in a positive way; unfortunately buying into negativity as a collective consciousness just creates more of the same.

It is time to put Faith first; faith in yourself, faith in the Divine. Faith in Our Holy Mother. Ask her for assistance, then take action, as we have spoken of before. Be the eye of the storm, rather than getting blown apart. Be the Peace; be the Love and be the Light.

Use it to lead the way back.

Namaste

The Hunter Of Paths

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Hunter Of Paths, from the Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

The Hunter Of Paths: “I am The Hunter Of Paths. I track the way through the complexities of life, seeking pathways for those who call on me. I lead you by the best way I can find, avoiding dangers and wrong turnings, seeking out the quickest route, or the longest, whichever will benefit you most. I help you in times of uncertainty, and when you feel lost or abandoned. Whatever the circumstances of your journey, with me at your side I can help you find the best way forward.”

“However and wherever we live, we need pathways to follow: this is as true today as it was for our ancestors. We seek out paths to show us how best to achieve our goals or find the right course of action amid a maze of turnings and decisions. The Hunter Of Paths is depicted here leaping onto the back of a creature whose long neck gives a clear view in every direction. With this Hinter by our side, we too can enjoy that clarity of vision, and with it carefully choose which path to follow. The Hunter Of Paths’ presence is a positive indicator that our instincts will guide us toward fruitful ways forward.”

Interpretations For This Card: “Finding the way ~ Looking for ways to reach your goals ~ Progressing wisely ~ Being mindful of wrong turnings ~ Discovering shortcuts ~ Discernment”

~ By John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

If you are feeling a little lost on your new journey, if you are trying to find your way, but you just need a little assistance, The Hunter Of Paths is here to help. Almost as old as the Earth herself, our Shaman understands the quest of the spiritual warrior is not always an easy road to travel. But you have already started your mission, and there is simply no turning back now. Even if you have been slow to start, things are shifting and changing around you. Nothing will ever quite be the same.

But there is nothing to fear here either. Embrace the mystery and enjoy the journey for what it is; an expansion of your conscious awareness, and awakening, a learning, a remembering and a returning. You are on the right path, you are just having trouble giving yourself credit for it. As there is much healing to be done, and shedding of layers, it is easy to find yourself feeling like the victim of circumstance, looking back instead of moving forward fearlessly. Whatever draws your attention backwards now is only doing so in order to get your attention and the true and final healing necessary. Then it can be blessed and released with all other pain.

Nothing can stop you now. You are on the right path. Some days will be slow going; others will be breezy. Some days will be stormy and dark and a little scary, but only until you break through the illusion and shine your light into the dark corners. Each step of the way you will become a new person, a wiser and more centered, grounded and loving person.

And one day, you will realize that all along your journey, this path has been leading back to you.

Namaste

Lakshmi bright future

Lakshmi, by Doreen Virtue

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

Lakshmi:  “Bright Future”

“Stop worrying. Everything is going to be fine.”

Message From Lakshmi: “This is a kind universe, and everyone within it is working in your favor. There are no tests, blocks, or obstacles in your way, except your own projections of fear into your future. Take a moment and hush your mind, quieting it from worries and fears. Feel me brush your brown with a new energy of faith, hope and optimism. These energies fuel your exciting present time, as well as all future moments. Why would you wish darkness upon yourself when light shines all around you? Step into this brightness by lightening your thoughts and feelings. You must stop worrying, as this anxiety squelches the goodness that seeks to find you! Clear your heart of fear, and replace those energies with ones that will serve you and your family instead. Refuse to think of anything, except your bright today and tomorrow, and I promise you that it shall be so.”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You and your loved ones will be protected and provided for. Let go of any “bag-lady” fears about your future. Hold positive thoughts and intentions. Know that you will always have your needs met, now and in the future. Do not worry about money, but instead, visualize abundance.

About Lakshmi (pronounced LOCK-shmee): Lakshmi is a beautiful and benevolent Hindu goddess who brings abundance to those who call upon her. Lakshmi’s connection to lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in the fertility and abundance available to everyone. She is happy to bring supply to you, whether that means money, time, knowledge, or opportunity. Lakshmi works with Ganesh, the elephant-headed deity who is known as the “overcomer of obstacles” Together, they are an unstoppable team that works to help you release fear and accept abundance.”*

~ By Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

So much pressure to intent and create and be clear and manifest… it can all get a bit overwhelming sometimes. We put so much pressure on ourselves to get it just right… perfect even! Yes, we need to know what we want, but we did work on simplifying it by boiling it down to it’s pure essence. Yes, we do intend that it be for the Highest Good of All… but what if we are missing something as time is flying along? What if we should be doing a better job? Being more focused, more dedicated, more committed?????

It’s enough to drive you insane! And it will, if you let it!

You are doing a great job! Everything is going to be OK. If you have made a little errors along the way, it’s OK… forgive yourself, learn and move on! Maybe you have stepped on some toes. Maybe things are not looking exactly as you had imagined, hoped and dreamed… yet. Breathe. Let go of the worries, doubts and fears. They are holding you back more than the obstacles you perceive. Just decide, right here and now, that if Lakshmi says that everything is going to be fine, It IS!

Keep on keeping on. You are on the right track. Everything is working out, even if it doesn’t look like it just yet. Hold on tight to your faith. Take a little time for yourself. Celebrate the victories, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem. And know that you are on the verge of something great, and brand new and wonderful.

And so it is

Namaste

Seven Of Swords

Seven Of Swords, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Swords, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Seven Of Swords: “Some say the future is writ in the stars. He searches the heavens as earnestly as he searches his heart.

Although young, he is an exceptional warrior – skilled in the art of combat, willing to fight for his ideals, and dedicated to the truth as he understands it. He is an enigma, always perparing for battle should it be necessary and always praying for peace. Even among the fey, truth can be cloudy, and motivations and desires can clash. It the shadowy light of the moon, through the dark night before a battle, a true warrior examines his heart. He asks the Divine to guide him and to purify his thoughts so that he may behave with honour.

The sky does not give up her secrets very easily tonight. Only seven stars, and he cannot make out any prognostication in them. The future is not his to know. This guidance only is given to him: Know yourself and what you believe in. Understand what you are willing to fight for, willing to die for. This wisdom will guide your steps, inform your actions, and shape your destiny. What the future holds does not matter, should not matter. Your actions should be decided by what you value, whatever the outcome.

He inhales the night air, breathing in the starlight. He exhales his gratitude. his answers were indeed found in the stars.

Divinatory Meaning Of This Card: “Living up to one’s ideals is not always easy, especially when those ideals are controversial. Sometimes those around us do not agree with our decisions or values. Sometimes they disagree because we are making a mistake. When you are facing such a moment, do not focus on what others think will happen. This is a moment when your ideals – what you hold dear – take precedence. The best advice is to first make very sure you are clear about your beliefs. Check your heart and make sure your intentions are pure. If you sincerely ask for guidance, the Divine usually provides a sign letting you know you are on the right track. Once that is settled, move forward with confidence.”*

It is time again to purify your intention. Look deeply within. Are you standing in your truth? Is what you are aiming for heart centered? Have you intended that what you wish to manifest into this reality be for the Highest Good of All? When you know that you are absolutely honest with yourself, and you are following your heart, you can move forward fearlessly. Yes, others may wish to control you or the outcome. Yes, it may create fear in you and in those close to you to see you change things in your life. But only you will know what your heart whispers to you. Only you know what makes your heart sing.

Intend harmony, joy, peace, and abundance. Intend Love. Ask for signs that you are on the right path and ask your guides to send you clear guidance on your journey. Know that you are protected and supported by the Universe, and that you have everything you need to make these dreams come true.

And so it is, Spiritual Warrior, you got this

Namaste
