The Swan Queen: “Transformation, Intuition, Patience”

“The Swan Queen glides your way and asks that you look at your reflection in the events of your life. She gives you the ability to see the beauty that has transformed your life from ignorance to wisdom. The Swan Queen lets you know that it is time to go within and seek the answers in your own intuition.

Do not look outside yourself for answers now; the true power lies reflected in the still waters within you. Now is the moment to meditate and ask for a vision. The power of psychic perception is inherent in you, and the Swan Queen will help you dive deep into your query to find the answers you seek.

This is also a reminder to allow time to transform ideas into reality. Nothing happens overnight.”

As Challenger: “When The Swan Queen appears to challenge you, it is time to stop doubting your inner voice. Do not let your analytical mind prevent you from seeing the miracles that Spirit places in front of you.

Another message The Swan Queen shows you in the mirror of your life is your fear of change. Why fear what is inevitable? Everything in life changes and transforms from one moment to the next. Holding on to the past only distorts and mangles the natural order of things.

If you can, in spite of your fear, be gentle with yourself and allow for change. Only beauty will come of it. Most importantly, a shift in perspective is what is called for now.”*

 ~By Colette Baron-Reid

It’s time to take stock. And responsibility. Look around you  and within you. What have you created and why? Do you see your patterns? What can you learn from them, and how can you turn away from the usual and have the courage to create something new? Is your story holding you hostage? If you were to release it, what else would be possible?

So many questions to ponder, but so necessary to contemplate them if you truly desire to manifest your dreams instead of more of the same. The Swan Queen wishes to lead us through our issues of self-worth that hold us back. She holds a mirror up to you, asking you to see your beauty, both inside and out. See your strength, your courage and your truth. Use these to more into the next chapter of your life.

Change is coming and if you are to make the most of it, you must learn to expand your vision. Shift your perspective of what you think is possible for you. Open up to receive the gifts of the universe and know that when you surrender to the change, and go with the flow, amazing things happen.

Namaste

Intikhana

Intikhana: “Child of the Light”

“There is a divine light that does not cast a shadow. Nor does it cast judgment, even thought it reveals truth – a truth that is sometimes hard to acknowledge and requires that we change our ways. True divine light is healing, it is unifying, it brings hope and illuminates the way. Other sorts of light exist on this planet that are not so pure, nor so helpful. Those sorts of light may appear stunningly bright, yet, in effect, create separation and increase ego. You can recognize genuine divine presence not by how dazzling it may appear at first, but by what your devotion to that divine light evokes in your heart and your world.”

In A Reading: “Trust your feeling over appearances. Move away from influences that create fear, negativity, or doubt in you. Reach out for that which uplifts your heart. Spiritual protection is being offered. Refuse to be dazzled by ego masquerading as something spiritual. Through your prayers and efforts, spiritual light has been accumulating on the inner planes, even though you may not sense that consciously as yet. There will be an intersection of events and circumstances in our physical world through which that light shall pour forth and manifest itself as grace. Continue with your spiritual devotion. There is something truly good to come of it.”

Spiritual Guidance: “In the Incan tradition, Inti is the physical sun and the spiritual presence inherent in the sun’s life-giving energy. Intikhana is the being who is one with Inti, a child of the sun. In the esoteric mystery schools, solar child and solar angel are terms for the soul, the deeper aspect of us that is connected to the spiritual light. This oracle brings you understanding that there is a new depth of soul connection opening up for you. We enter such a sacred process through a challenge known in spiritual traditions as initiation.

When we are faced with a deep unknowing – which is what happens when we are growing spiritually and moving through a spiritual initiation – we have outgrown what our minds are capable of providing. We need more knowledge, more wisdom, more light so that we can find our way through the darkness of initiation and into the blessing of new life waiting on the other side of the process. When we turn our attention to the soul, instead of applying logic and intellect to figure out yet another (doomed) plan to conquer the irrepressible evolution inherent in the spiritual path, we finally gain comfort. Hope is a quality of the soul. It allows us to bear the uncertainty when, according to a greater wisdom, there is something that we cannot know the answer to, at least for now. Hope gives us patience so that we can learn how to feel our soul connection more deeply, and grow into the wisdom of the answers we need. We stop fumbling about in the library of the intellect and, instead, seek out the answer from the source that can provide it, which is the illumined temple of our own soul.

Initiation often involves an element of the unexpected. We typically feel unprepared for it, even though at a soul level, we have been working towards it for a long time. If it’s happening, however, then we are actually ready for it. Such spiritual testing is intimidating to the ego, but the soul knows how to move through the process. Trust your inner self, and trust in the light and the unconditionally supportive assistance that the Universe will lend to your purpose. Then you can be fearless, impervious to manipulation and remain steady and faithful in the face of challenge.

The solar festival of Inti was a celebration of new life, which was held at the start of a new planting season. It is realistic to cultivate hope and cheerfulness, both of which nurture the heart – especially during initiation. This oracle foretells of a positive conclusion of any initiation of soul. If you or a loved one have been plagued by dark and depressing thoughts, this oracle brings a spiritual intervention of joyful light. open up to the joyful light of love and peace to fill your heart and your home. You have the power to call this in because you are acknowledged as a child of the light. Rest in the divine light within, imagining that you can peer into your soul and be warmed by the light and life of the inner sun that shines within your soul – which is the true light of Great Spirit. From that place of inner peace, luminous love and safe refuge, you can proceed with boldness, patience, wisdom and hope. The oracle asks you to cultivate a sense of self-worth and acknowledge the goodness within you, without needing to be perfect. You don’t just have light within you. You are the light. Remember. Shine. We need you.”

Healing Process: “When you are ready, say the following invocation aloud:

‘I affirm the light within me. I call for the true light of the Divine to shine bright and clear, showing the way on Earth. I am the light, and the light is within me. I trust my soul and the spiritual light within that guides me always. May the light in all hearts be stirred into awakening with unconditional love, grace and mercy. So be it.’

You are encouraged to complete and ground this process with any light-affirming joyful movements – such as dancing, holding hands in prayer, opening your arms to the sky or simply meditating on the light within for as long as you wish. You may wish to sing or journal, say further prayers or create some art. Be with whatever affirms the truth of the light within for you in this moment.

You have completed your healing process.”*

This is such an important message. Ego versus Spirit. Can you tell the difference? Sometimes it floors me that the most judgmental and egotistical people are the spiritual ones. The ones who are in competition with each other, trying to one up each other as to who is the MOST spiritual. Seriously. The Gurus. The Masters. Those with a big following who are encouraged to do what the master says; whether they model that behaviour themselves or, as often probably, NOT.

Sigh

Spirituality is so much simpler than all that. It’s just like Dr Zeus says: “It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.” The more bells and whistles, the more it should be questioned. The more it creates a heirarchy, separating us from each other, through race or colour or gender or lifestyle choice, the more it should be rejected. The more it threatens doom and gloom if you don’t follow it’s rules, the more it should be walked away from.

Spirituality is Love. Love is spirituality. Period. There is no room for hate, for judgment, or for heirarchy. There is no room for greed or hypocrisy.

Only love. Connection. Expansion. And Light. Bring it into balance, that is spirituality.

Namaste

Sisters Of The Seasons

Published April 16, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sisters Of The Seasons, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sisters Of The Seasons, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Sisters Of The Seasons: “When the Sisters Of The Seasons meet you on your path, they remind you that everything has a natural rhythm that obeys a higher law. Just as the seasons magically pass, be reminded that the nature of birth, growth, harvest, and decay cannot be altered. So if you keep on your path with determination and discernment, allowing for the natural course of events to unfold, success is assured.

Divine appropriate timing is guiding your desires into perfect manifest form. This is a very good period to start new things, as you have moved out of winter into the beginning of spring. Continue with patience, and be aware of the rhythms of your opportunities. There will be periods when things slow down and begin anew, move into fruition, and then slow down again in a never-ending natural flow.

Be mindful of which Sister greets you, for she points directly at the next. Every moment counts now.”

Sisters Of The Seasons as Challenger: “The Sisters Of The Seasons send you a warning that you are trying to jump the gun and go from winter to summer without paying heed to spring, or skip from summer to winter without allowing for the possibility of autumn. Moving too quickly, looking for shortcuts, and artificially trying to prolong a hoped for result will not yield what you desire. There are no shortcuts. It is time to rethink your plan.

All four Sisters Of The Seasons are Nature’s cherished daughters, and all are important. Be careful of the difficulties they force you to endure when you try to trick them away from each other. Better to let Nature take her course. Her daughters will be very happy, and so will you if you let them express themselves in order.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This message is about being methodical, patient and thorough. It is about making a plan, taking action and sticking with it. It is about practicing mindfulness each and every day. A plan like saving money or losing weight… you can’t skip to the end result, you must go dollar by dollar or pound by pound.

We want the end result so badly sometimes that we will do almost anything to skip the actual work and just get to it. We might decide on a ‘get rich quick’ scheme or a diet pill instead of clean eating and exercise. It seems so much faster and easier but yet it is not. It is like walking a tightrope; one false move and we are gone.

Have patience and take your time. As stated above, every moment counts. Half the battle is in your head, where your ego natters relentlessly that there must be an easier way. There is not. Follow the path, do the work and know that you have everything you need to make your dream a reality. All you have to do is commit to the process, one step at a time.

Namaste

Patience

Published April 14, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Patience, from the Heal Yourself Reading Cards, by Inna Segal, artwork by Cris Ortega and Drazenka Kimpel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Patience, from the Heal Yourself Reading Cards, by Inna Segal, artwork by Cris Ortega and Drazenka Kimpel

Patience: “You must develop patience in all areas of your life.”

“Patience does not mean that you give up and do nothing. On the contrary, you need to be aware of several aspects of the circumstance that you are facing. Patience requires you to stop pushing, rushing and creating potentially explosive situations. Instead it asks you to see the bigger picture and become aware of the ingredients that might be missing.

If you are impatient with a particular person, instead give them space.

Avoid jumping to conclusions and making up dramatic stories about a person or a situation without being aware of all the details. You have an opportunity to let go of judgment. Always look for the truth of the situation, not what someone is saying or doing, but why?

Patience can also be connected to a health condition you are recovering from, a new diet or an exercise program you have embarked on, or a new course of study you may have begun.”

Action:

“Focus on one thing at a time.

Say to yourself: ‘I accept what is without judgment. I am willing to practice patience and presence.’

Breathe slowly and deeply while focusing on what is. Be aware of the air hitting your nostrils and lungs. Soften and relax. Be the explorer of the present moment. Discover what is magical, beautiful and serene in this moment. If you are feeling unwell or stressed, just allow yourself to explore these feelings with the awareness that they will pass.”*

~ By Inna Segal

Have patience, Dear One, for you are almost there. It may seem like things are not moving as quickly as you would like. You may feel that you have put in so much effort for very little return. But things are almost there. You are exactly where you need to be. Have faith in the process. Breathe.

You may be feeling restless, wondering why you feel like you are struggling to manifest your desires. It is simply a matter of timing, things are not quite in alignment yet but they are coming together nicely.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a break from your focused intention and action and do something that brings you joy and relaxation instead. Give up the work and take a day to do something different. Exercise is a great way to mix up the energy. Or a little trip out of town if you can swing it. Do something fun, playful and light. Get outside if you can. Walk on the beach, hike up a mountain or sit with your back against a big, beautiful tree. Create, craft, cook, paint whatever brings you bliss and erases the worry and doubt you may be feeling. Yoga is magical medicine for that restless feeling.

Know that things are happening, even if it is behind the scenes. And soon you will realize that this was just a little bump along the way. Have patience.

Namaste

Strength ~ Elephant

Published February 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Strength ~ Elephant: “Courage and Endurance”

Card Message: “Elephant balances strength and gentleness, but the main source of her strength is love. Instead of using her strength to exert power over others, she uses it to keep others from exerting power over her. Her strength shines in her compassion, her self-esteem and in her levels of endurance. Her faith in her spiritual strength keeps her resilient. The spirit of Elephant is a reminder of what your life’s motivation is, fueling you with the drive and inner strength to pursue it.”

Key Words: “Self control, inner strength, courage, compassion, love, patience, vision, endurance.”

Strength ~ Elephant As Challenger: “Self-doubt will erode your courage. Reconnect to your core strength by drawing on your willpower. Count your current blessings, as this will renew your self-confidence.”

Challenger Keywords: “Fear, self-doubt, insecurity, imbalance, anger.”

~ by Paulina Cassidy

There will be challenges on the road ahead and they are simply tests of our commitment to ourselves and our dreams. Are we serious about what we are pursuing? Then we will be asked to prove it. Rather than getting frustrated or distracted or giving up or feeling sorry for ourselves, we will stay on track. We will believe in ourselves and we will use our inner resources to stay strong. We will not need to fight but we will stand true for what we believe in, and that is the medicine of elephant.

Elephants are very intelligent, they are family oriented and extremely loyal. They are sensitive and caring, and highly aware. They represent strong connection and harmony, protection and solidarity, and the Divine Feminine power of compassion and nurturing. All of these aspects can be used in your journey ahead.

Meditate on the above image and see what elephant has to tell you, there may be a special meaning just for you. Maybe you need a little extra courage and strength to face the challenges that lay ahead. Maybe you need to reconnect to family and realize that you are not isolated or alone. Maybe elephant wants you to know that you are stronger than you think.

Watch for elephant to come into your awareness in the coming days. Even a glimpse on television or a picture in a magazine is confirmation from the Universe that you are being taken care of and the strength you need is available to you. It is also a reminder to come back to this message and know that you are on the right path, that the challenges are only tests and that better things lie ahead for you.

So stay the course, and know that you have what it takes to succeed. Have faith in yourself and do not give up hope. Change can be uncomfortable but if you meet it with grace and acceptance you are sure to win.

Namaste

Pyromorphite

Published January 16, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Pyromorphite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Pyromorphite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Pyromorphite: “Patience”

Crystal Colour: “Lime green”
Related Chakras: “Solar Plexus, and Heart”

Crystal Medicine: “Pyromorphite is a rare, sought after crystal with a unique and powerful medicine – a wonderful crystal for someone who requires assistance in finding more patience in life. It holds the medicine of self-esteem and assertiveness, encouraging you to listen to the voice within and make positive decisions and choices. This magical crystal encourages you to find a deeper belief and respect in the self.”

Crystal Meaning: “Assists in creating more patience, allowing for deeper tolerance and understanding. Deepens your intuition and gut feelings. Encourages assertiveness and courage. Supports you to stand up for yourself. Addresses issues of low self-esteem. Promotes a deeper belief in and respect for the self.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “This powerful card and crystal remind you that patience is required in certain aspects of your life right now. Trust and know that divine order is at play. At times it is easy to rush through life and wish to hurry things along. However, at this time you are guided to allow things to flow at their own pace. If you have asked about a specific issue, you are being encouraged to hold back, be patient, and give it a little more time and space before you make a decision – it is not the perfect time to move forward on this issue. Tune inward and be aware of and honour any frustration, impatience, or resistance that may arise in this process. Hand these feelings over to the crystal devas for healing and transmutation. Remember to breathe, center and be present with yourself and enjoy where you are at right now. Take a moment and trust that all is taking place for your highest good, even if it does nto seem like it right now. Patience is one of the great virtues, and mastering it can truly set you free. Before you know it, the moments will flow by and patience will gift you with many blessings. This card can also be a reminder to be patient with yourself and those around you.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Here again we have a message of patience, of things not moving quickly. Or maybe of the calm before the storm. Yes things are going to start moving, and it is up to you right now to keep the faith and keep your focus so that when they do start moving, they move in the direction of your dreams.

What do you believe you are capable of creating? Know that whatever your beliefs are, they are about to be put to the test. So smarten up if you are in victim mode, do you really want more of the same?? Or are you ready to create something brand new and different? All up to you. As always…

See yourself standing at a crossroad. The path to your right leads back around in a circle, a pattern repeated many, many times… so many times in fact that you can see the trail is cut deeply into the ground, water has settled, it’s muddy. The path to your left is grassy and winds up a hill; obviously the road far less traveled. Turn towards the left and face the new path, knowing that it was never really on your left, but instead, right in front of you. Know as well that the path to your right was always behind you, your past, circling around and around. Which path do you choose? Do you really want to turn around and go back there, trudge through the muck one more time? Do you really need to experience that again? Have you not learned that lesson yet? Do you trust yourself to try something new? It looks a little daunting, yes, you can see it is a bit of a climb. But you won’t really know until you try it will you?

Take three deep breaths and focus your attention into the present moment. Realize that you really are at that crossroads. It really is up to you to create more of the same or something new. Decide which direction you want to go and see yourself set the intention to step forward fearlessly onto the path. Hopefully onto the brand new path. Hopefully away from the mud and the mire. Hold your focus. Hold your intention.

And Do Not look back, that is not the way you are going. Is it?

Namaste

Seven Of Pentacles

Published January 5, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seven Of Pentacles, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Pentacles, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy

Seven Of Pentacles

Card Description: “Waiting for efforts to bear fruit; the querent’s steady, careful work and patience is building up and they will soon see results; working toward a good future; patience is building up and they will soon see results; working towards a good future; patience is challenged but holding, success will be attained after delay; a long-awaited bounty is soon to come; waiting for an expected bit of money; a time of tending and nurturing; responsibility; a private plan or idea held dear; pouring your blood, sweat and tears into a project or person; taking good care of something precious.”

Seven Of Pentacles As Challenger: “An effort finally comes to fruition; a time of harvest; a neglected endeavour needs attention; a period of delay is ending; impatience impedes potential growth; opportunity; the wait is over; a failed harvest; plans and projects fail to pay off; not getting an equal return for the work one has put in.”

Magkical Uses: “Use in spells and rituals to represent the idea of bounty and harvest, the fruits of your labour and the treasures of your toil. Move the card quickly three times around in a small clockwise circle to speed along the harvest.” (**if you do not have the card, visualize yourself doing this exercise.)*

~ By Melanie Marquis

This is a message of patience paying off. Don’t let the ego mind get in the way of your success, wasting precious energies worrying and fretting that things aren’t going as planned. Things are coming together, even if you do not have the proof of it quite yet, remain committed to your cause. It is so easy for us to lose hope or to get distracted, spending energy focused on what could go wrong instead of what is going right. Take back your power by deciding that everything is going to work out exactly as it should and all you have to do is stay the course towards successful outcomes.

We are so much more powerful than we realize, individually and collectively. And yet we get so easily off track. We want the quick fix, we want things to fall into place and we get impatient if we feel we have done our share and the results are elusive. Then we enter the dangerous territory of compromise. We lower our standards, worrying that we may have set them too high. We look at others and feel like maybe what was supposed to be ours has been taken from us and given to someone else.

We need perspective and we need faith. We need to know with conviction that what we have been manifesting is absolutely possible for us, if we hold our intention to be for the Highest Good Of All. Maybe the Universe will tweak it a little. Maybe it’s taking a bit longer than expected. Maybe there have been curve balls along the way.

Have faith. And know that what you desire to manifest is on it’s way.

Namaste

Dee
