The Clinging

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

The Clinging: “The message here is to consider the qualities of fire and its dual nature: on the one hand it provides warmth and illumination that disperses darkness, revealing the hidden, and on the other hand it is capable of ruthless destruction. It defines, brings clarity, is brilliant and beautiful, and can be utterly enchanting or alternatively can be all consuming, difficult, and voracious in its appetites.

The climate usually associated with fire is bright, hot, and passionate. Yet in some instances it can be experienced as cool and passionately dispassionate. It is dangerous in its apparent ability to mesmerize while it is consuming, to the point where the consumed is eliminated, devoured by its own attraction like the moth in the flame. And just like that hypnotized moth, we humans will even put our lives at stake to participate, even briefly, in a moment of glory. If passion is strong enough we will fight aggressively to defend our beliefs in spite of the havoc those beliefs might unleash.

To harness the powerful transformative quality of fire requires maturity, and maturity doesn’t happen overnight; it develops at a slow and deliberate pace, sometimes requiring that we get burned in the process. A fiery temperament prefers to leap now and deal with the consequences later, and it is simply childish to blame fate for what you attract when your actions are ruled by impulsiveness. Passionately surrendering one’s own cautious instincts can be in the service of anything – a person, place, object or point of view and is bound to be transformative in some form or other. Surrendering to an all-consuming passion virtually guarantees we will emerge from the experience irrevocably changed from how we entered it. Once a longing is powerful enough, and it seems impossible to withdraw, we’ve already taken the first steps into the fire. What’s more, even if we could we wouldn’t turn back.

In some instances, to deny a fascination can be deeply troubling. Blinded by ‘the light’ of what seems to be our destiny, we can rush headlong into danger, driven by an inexplicable longing, only to wake up dazed and distraught later on. But with awareness, such experiences can be recognized as invaluable in that they help to clarify our acts and motivations. Awareness makes it possible to appreciate, not simply to endure, the process of regeneration.

If you feel as though you are standing in fire now, respect its capacity to cleanse and purify as it burns off whatever has become extraneous and burdensome in your life. This will help you to appreciate what is happening rather than resist it. Remember, too, that life is not out to destroy you, but is working continuously to support your growth and, ultimately, your self-realization.

Once this time has passed, you will  have a new respect and appreciation for the uncomplicated and simple things in life. Ultimately it all boils down to your inner perspective, whether you become bitter and burned out by an experience, or take it in stride and appreciate how it has helped you to grow, revitalizing your life in the process.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

There is a feeling here that maybe it wasn’t as easy to let go as we would have liked. There was resistance, hesitation, stubbornness. So, in comes the fire. Burning and shifting and changing, like it or not. Fire is raging here, out of our control. Change is in motion, things are happening. Do not go into victim mode, see it for what it is. See the cleansing, the clearing away. See the purification and the clearing of the slate. Know that it will be followed with opportunity, growth and rebirth. Let it reignite your passion and zest for life.

Resistance is futile! The momentum is such that there is no stopping it now, it has begun and will continue to shift and change until it is done and the change is complete. Tempers may flare. There may be conflict to deal with. Do not get dragged into the drama, but instead rise above it. Gain a new perspective and accept the change as it happens. Be a part of it, embrace it, receive it. Dare to love it.

Gather your strength and your resources and know that your rebirth is up to you to direct. Know that you have full responsibility for creating what comes next. The people will come, the opportunities will come. You get to choose who goes and who stays. You get to choose which doors open and which remain closed. This is your masterpiece, your creation; your ultimate manifestation.

What will come after the fire?

Namaste

King Of Fire

Published August 8, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

King Of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

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

King Of Fire

Key Words: “Proactive, Dauntless, Inspirational, Vital, Powerful, Passionate, Charismatic, Involved”

Key Phrases: “Ground and focus your passion. Be more than an ideas person. Remain involved from start to finish. Every leader is part of a team. Delegate. Be dauntless. Respect your position by respecting others. Show your appreciation. Keep your temper in check.”

Card Meaning: “The King Of Fire is a charismatic leader. He is passionate, and his passion is something others find inspiring because it is focused, grounded, and creative. He is the perfect team leader. He can draw to him the people who are necessary for a project to be completed, and every single person will want to play a part to help bring his vision to life. Some may see the King Of Fire as an ideas man, but they only have to observe, and they will soon discover that he is very proactive. He likes to be involved, to get his hands dirty, and he will remain involved from inception to completion.

The King Of Fire is also fearless. Dauntless, in fact. He is lion-hearted, and the vital heartbeat of his court. He is not afraid of hard work, but he also respects and moves through his day with the awareness that he is only a part of the whole. He is a necessary part, but still just a part, and one that can be replaced if his ventures fail. This is why the King Of Fire works tirelessly to fulfill his role, and, despite his gregarious ways and charismatic nature, is, and the core, a very unassuming and respectful man. It is why he calls upon, and makes use of, those around him. He understands that he is but one man, and in order to rule well he must be willing to delegate; in essence, he must be willing to share his power and his glory with others.

If the King Of Fire appears in your reading, it symbolizes the wisdom of knowing that even those who are leaders are a part of a team. Every wise leader has people around them who perform tasks that hep them to keep things running smoothly. This same wise leader respects their team, and appreciates the efforts made on their behalf.

He symbolizes the importance of being interested and involved from beginning to end. He asks us not to start something, delegate, and then walk away.”

Potential Blockage: “The King Of Fire as challenger speaks of the consequences of arrogance, aggressiveness, and an explosive temper. It symbolizes a leader who has forgotten that in order to lead one must have followers – and if one treats them harshly, they will find someone else to follow. They will act to replace their king.

When this card appears, remember to keep your temper in check. Think before you speak and act. If you are feeling challenged and close to losing your cool, then step back and give yourself time to calm down. Also, be sure to avoid bullying and intimidating people in order to get things accomplished. It will only serve to put people offside and sabotage any chances of success.

Don’t get caught up in the glory that comes with success. Don’t place yourself upon a pedestal and expect to be worshipped, for there will always be someone who is willing to push you from your precarious position.”*

Today is the 8:8 Lion’s Gateway portal. What will you create with the amazing energies flowing to us and through us now? This is the energy of awakening, ascension and enlightenment. It is an amplification of whatever energies that we align ourselves with, making it absolutely vital that we practice mindfulness and presence now.

Change is amplified at this time, every aspect of our lives and ourselves is up for review. Your career, relationships, lifestyle choices, living space and creative expression will all be shifted one way or the other. Trust that everything is in perfect Divine order. When things slip out of our grasp, this is often because we have ignored previous guidance from the Universe. We can only hold on for so long before things must change. What may seem like chaos is actually creating order, do not fight it.

If things feel out of control, this is the time to take back the reigns of responsibility and take action towards what you wish to create. This is not the time to be a wall flower or victim of your life, it is a time to take positive steps and focused intention. Anything truly is possible and these next few days are most powerful to set your course in the direction you most desire. Give your fears none of your energy, focus only on what it is that you wish to fill your life with. Trust that the Universe will co-create this reality with you. Even if it doesn’t look and feel this way just yet.

Do your part, take the steps you need to take. Fuel it will passion and desire. Harness the energy of Leo, the brazen and charismatic Lion or Lioness. Be the hero or heroine of your own story.

Namaste

Healer Of Action: “This is a time when you can do whatever you set your mind to if your heart is open. You are beings asked to do many things at once. You will not mind as long as you know that you are making a difference. This card indicates someone who is loving, intelligent, passionate, and fun, which could definitely describe you! This person can handle difficult situations with grace.”

Situations: “Parent, spouse, executive, environmentalist, and yoga teacher… that may perfectly match your life, or perhaps you wear different, but equally diverse, hats. The important point is that you can do anything once your heart and mind are engaged. Others are naturally drawn to your beautiful and happy nature. Your life may be challenging, but you are very aware that you are making a difference in the world, and it feels good to you!”

People: “Someone you can trust to be a loving, intelligent, and fun friend. A person with great physical and inner beauty. Handles difficult situations with grace. Consciously takes care of self and others. Stands behind his or her beliefs. Walks his or her talk.”

You are settling into your authentic self, are you feeling it? Are you getting more comfortable in this new You? Are you feeling Lighter? More joyful? More aligned to your true Soul Purpose?

Yes there are bound to be bumps along the way, but you have worked hard to get where you are, celebrate it! There may still be some clearing out to do, but as you reach your short term goals, and your confidence in yourself and your abilities improves, you will find that you can easily set your sights higher. There really is no limit on what you can create.

Sometimes you may feel spread too thin, like you have taken too much on. If this is the case, you need to schedule in some time in silence and contemplation. This is mandatory. Gone are the days of proving our worth by never saying no and doing way too much for others. There is no such thing as being selfish for taking a little time out for you to recharge your batteries. Go to a yoga class; go for a walk; have a bath; do something creative; dance, sing, make music; cook; write; breathe; communicate with your Higher Self; take time to dream. This is a new reality. You must nurture yourself in order to flourish.

Send gratitude out into the Universe for all that you have. Send gratitude to the lessons learned. Make time for new, gentler experiences to come through. There is no need for big shoves from the Universe anymore; we are listening, we are Here, Now.

Ask the Universe with reverence, “What miracles do you have for me now that I can receive with gratitude and joy?”

Namaste

Dee
