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

Action

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Action, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Action: “Movement, Perseverance, Discipline, Motivation.”

“Listen to the call of your inner rhythms and take bold action in the direction of your dreams.. Today!”

Card Story: “Cloaked in the fabrics of her passion and at one with the moment, a dancer glides across a stage of sparkled moss and moonlit leaves. She moves with a sense of graceful certainty. A knowing that the ground upon which she dances will rise to meet her steps. Her movements are free and expressive; her eyes seek nothing outside of herself, for she follows a rhythm that comes from within. Connected to the earth and reaching for the heavens, her dance is a bridge of Divine inspiration. She is the embodiment of unified Action.”

Card Message: “In our modern world, with so many different pressures and roles to play, our actions are often inconsistent, postponed or not aligned with our goals. We stand at the edge of our dreams, overwhelmed by uncertainty of how best to begin.

This card is here to remind you that you do not need to see the entire path ahead. You just need to clarify your intentions, feel the rhythms of your calling and begin. Take the first step in faith, knowing that the Universe will align to support you.

Consider an area of your life that you are ready to change or transform. Ask yourself what physical action you can take today – perhaps in the next ten minutes – to assist in bringing about this goal. When the answer comes… follow it!

Do not get overwhelmed by the end result or the details in between. Just begin. Once you start you will find new energy will come in to lift your steps and inspire whatever is needed next. As you take one step and then another, you will begin to build momentum, like the turning of a great wheel. Gradual at first, but soon you are rolling and can guide your energy in any desired direction. Stay with this momentum. Persevere. Consistent action will carry you swiftly towards your goals!

When our actions stem from a sense of inner knowing, like a dancer moving to the pulse of an inner rhythm, our steps will always be guided and true. Do not wait for things to happen. Start dancing and the music will rise to meet you.”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

There is a polarity with the colour red… it can represent fear or it can represent passion. Your choice! Do you want to get past the fear and embrace your passion? Then you have to move forward fearlessly into the unknown. And the time to do it is right now!

Take at least one step today towards creating something new in your life. Take a little risk. Do some research. Get excited. Dream, think, visualize, FEEL your way into it. Breathe life into it. Know that the more positive energy you can put in, the faster your manifestation will be. Watch your self talk, that internal dialogue that talks you so quickly out of what you want to pursue. Instead, set your course and set onto it boldly, knowing that once you commit you will find a way to make it happen.

What do you wish to create? Do you focus all your energy on it? Do you intend to see it through to fruition? Do you know in your heart that you are capable of manifesting it into reality? Can you feel the feelings that creating it would bring?

The orb of the sun through the trees is yellow, the colour of confidence and the Will of the self. The little butterflies are hints of transformation and change. The exposed midriff is trust. The little stars are magic and mystery.

Make something happen.

Today

Namaste

The Horse King

The Horse King, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Horse King, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms, by Colette Baron-Reid Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

The Horse King as Ally: “The Horse King always comes to lend you the power to go the distance, forging ahead whatever the weather. You will most certainly reach your perfect destination with this noble Ally. He lets you know that some person or circumstance brought through synchronicity will certainly appear to help you with your endeavours. You are not meant to go this part of the journey alone.

This is also an important time to delegate authority to others that they may assist you. Currently you are magnetic to powerful people who are in a position to help you make your dreams come true. The Horse King asks that you remain open to those who are sent to aid you. You can be assured that you will be lifted up and will ride high in victory.”

The Horse King as Challenger: “The Horse King wants to know why you think you can do everything all by yourself. Keeping control of everything around you is counterproductive and exhausting. You may lose an important opportunity if you insist on being stubborn. The Horse King is patient, however, and will wait for you to come to your senses and accept the help you need. You will not be able to reach your goal otherwise.

Yet The Horse King says that all it takes is a decision to jump on his back, ask for the help you need, and graciously allow yourself to be carried to your destination. Let go of control and amazing things can happen for you.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself right? Believe me, as single parent and entrepreneur I totally get this! Sometimes it’s easier to just get it done than spend the time debating who is going to do it and why they have to do it… it’s exhausting. Yet there is only so much I can accomplish in a day, and I will admit it, sometimes it’s more than I even thought I could pull off! And I must mention I do feel very blessed to have the support and assistance of my parents, which I realize that many do not have.

So this card is a gentle reminder that it’s time to allow ourselves to receive some help. Phew, what a nice concept! Assistance, yes please.

Sometimes you can receive assistance by not doing what you don’t want to do. Removing yourself from obligations and responsibilities that make you feel resentful and angry is the ultimate freedom. Of course we can’t get out of everything, but there are always one or two things that just really rub us the wrong way but we don’t speak up and do something about them. Take this first step and learn to say “no thank you!” to anything that makes your blood boil. Who needs that kind of stress anyhow! Hanging out with toxic people? Who needs that, no time and energy for that. In a damaging relationship? Good bye, thank you for the lesson. Over worked, under paid and super stressed? How can you streamline your life?

If you cannot imagine how help could possibly come your way, ask for assistance from you team of guides who are always willing to assist you. Ask that the right people be sent your way. Ask that the tasks that you just can’t complete will be taken on by someone who will do them joyfully… or at least do them sometimes so that you don’t always have to!

Surrender the need to control, to micro manage. Trust that things can get done without your hands always having to do them. Yes, it is possible.

Namaste

Four Of Earth

Published June 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Four Of Earth, from the Dreams of Gaia oracle card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Four Of Earth, from the Dreams of Gaia oracle card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Four Of Earth ~ Key Words: “Commitment, Stability, Relieabiltiy, Steady Progress, Endurance, Perseverance, Stoicism.”

Key Phrases: “Slow and steady progress. One step at time. Fear and doubt slow forward momentum. Do not falter. Rest and recharge. A good outcome ahead. Do not make hasty decisions. Watch for careless errors.”

Card Meaning: “When the Four Of Earth appears in your reading, a happy and rewarding outcome is close at hand. Remember, however, that the key to completing large or long-term projects is in making slow and steady progress. The key is to put one brick on top of another, to persevere and continue to build, even when you feel you want to give up. It is to remain stoic and positive in the face of hardship, knowing that experiencing frustration, fear, and doubt will only serve to weigh you down and slow your momentum.

You have made real and tangible progress; do not falter now. You are close to achieving your goal or manifesting the outcome you desire most. The Four Of Earth encourages not giving up, even if weariness dogs your every move.

Take a moment to look back at how far you have come, and celebrate what you have achieved. Now look forward and see that you only have a few things left to accomplish. Take heart, take a moment to rest and recharge, and then continue forward with the same level of dedication.”

Potential Blockage: “Tedium and monotony often instill a desire to rush. Do not allow the desire to be free to move on to new ventures to result in careless errors, or prevent you from completing a task, or resolving an issue that  you have before you. You might find yourself free of boredom and impatience only to feel the weightier burden of guilt and regret.

Whether it be a matter that affects home and hearth, or one that affects your career, do not allow impatience and frustration to cloud your judgement and lead to hasty decisions.

The shadow Four Of Earth cautions you against embracing a belief that greener pastures are waiting if you choose to walk away. In this circumstance, they are not.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

As you look within to find your gifts and assimilate the new energies, aligning with your new Soul Path, things may feel a bit overwhelming. There shouldn’t be pressure to ‘get ahead’ right now, try to focus instead on settling into it. Commit yourself to slow and steady action steps, one at a time, towards manifesting your dreams. Don’t be put off if things are taking longer than you would like; and know that by working through it, even when it’s feeling challenging, you are telling the Universe that you are serious about this, it is important to you, and you are not willing to give up.

Know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, this message is very clear that you must stay in the same tunnel to get to the light! Do not decide that the grass looks greener on the other side and make last minute changes to compromise your dreams. Also do not let doubt get the better of you. Know that the only way through it is through it! Not around it, no short cuts, no turning around and going the other way, you have come too far already.

Focus on your gifts. Focus on your dreams. Focus on building your new reality, one brick at a time.

You got this.

Namaste

Difficulty in the Beginning

Published March 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Difficulty in the Beginning, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Difficulty in the Beginning, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Difficulty in the Beginning: “What might seem like chaos and confusion around you or within you right now is actually a much needed jolt. It is becoming apparent that certain aspect of the life to which you have become accustomed are dramatically being shaken up. Whether you think you are ready for it or not, the outgrown is already falling away. Just as the smallest seed requires tremendous energy to break open, once it does it leaves the shell behind. Then, faced with innumerable challenges, it emerges from the darkness into the light. This happens in the right timing of things.

In retrospect, you will see this as a birth that not only strengthened your ability to ‘roll with the punches,’ but increased your capacity to endure difficult transitions. In the interim, though, you have every right to feel vulnerable and shaky, but don’t let that stop you! Much of what was a source of security and protection is being buffeted to the point where it is difficult to know what you want, which way to move, or what is expected – and there my be questions and doubts in many areas of life where once there was unshakable certainty. But feeling doubtful now is not necessarily a bad thing – in fat, it is an inevitable part of the process of dismantling the old to clear the way for the new. However difficult or painful it may be, this is a vitally important stage of your growth.

Rather than feeling sorry for yourself or mourning what is lost, prepare to face the new challenges and possibilities that will soon appear on the horizon. The nature of this particular journey is that once it has begun, there is no turning back. Although at times the landscape might seem totally unfamiliar, keep a steady pace and stay in touch with the real needs of the moment rather than projecting into the future. Any attempt to create a plan or ‘make sense’ of things is premature and will just lead to repetitiveness, frustration, and unnecessary confusion. So be gentle with yourself, and go slowly. There is no rush – each and every step counts.

Your capacity to trust in the mysterious rhythms that are impacting your life now is being strengthened, and as a result you may discover yourself approaching change with an inner calm that once would have seemed impossible. Breathe deeply and stay alert. Don’t be shy or too proud to ask for help when it is needed, and receive it with humility and gratitude when it is offered. You may know someone who has walked this walk and whose wisdom will be a source of support and encouragement for you now.

Likewise, tune in to the inner guide, the voice of truth that speaks from your intuition. If you respect and stay in touch with its guidance, taking the time to listen, you will find it never fails to dispassionately reveal the next step. Patience, perseverance, and gentleness with yourself are essential now. Though challenging nature strengthens every growing thing, just think what an intimidating and arduous journey it is from the egg to the open sky! Get into the spirit of adventure while taking care not to put yourself or others at risk; there is much that needs to be attended to. It is the dawn of a new day and you are more than ready to move on; if you weren’t , the Tao wouldn’t have provided this opportunity.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

Ego likes nothing more than to run the show; with a flair for the dramatic and a tendency to repeat old habits and patterns of behaviour ad nauseam. As we kick ego to the curb and actually progress along the road less traveled, it is bound to kick up a fuss. This is the fear and doubt you may be experiencing now. Acknowledge it, and move forward regardless. One foot after the other.

The progress need not be hasty, it is more about consistency now. It is about perseverance, determination and commitment to something brand new; pure and completely authentic. It is about living in integrity, in alignment with Higher Purpose. It is not about the accumulation of material worth, but about finding conviction in our own self worth. That is where the treasure lies.

Yes, it’s going to be uncomfortable. Yes, there may be those around you who would align with your ego and fight for things staying the same. Move forward anyway. There may be challenges, road blocks or just some stumbling blocks. Move forward anyway.

This is a powerful new Moon and we can use it to our advantage. Aries is about getting out there and getting things done. It is about harnessing your energy and focusing it onto your goals, taking action and making things happen. It is not a time of sitting around hoping and wishing, it is about getting er done! It is the perfect time to take steps to change what isn’t working in your life, painful or not, and get things moving in the right direction. It’s time to take the reins.

What you put out there right now is what you will create in the very immediate future. It will impact the rest of this year and the nine year cycle we are embarking upon this year. Get really clear on your intentions. Write them down. Read them out loud. Light a candle. Say a prayer. And see just how powerful your manifestation skills really are.

Namaste

Goals

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

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

The Cauldron

Published July 28, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

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

The Cauldron: “The cauldron represents a bringing forth, from the depths of your being, an expression of your own vision and creativity. You are now ready to give birth to a dream that has been developing within you for some time. the moment is ripe to make a meaningful contribution, and your essential self has already begun to prepare you for the next step.

Within itself, your unique nature carries all you need to succeed – and your commitment is such that you will achieve the best possible results without compromising the integrity of your work or of your own being. When life reveals the path ahead, it is testifying to the timeliness of our creative vision and its potential to benefit others. The first whisperings of that “Go ahead!” may appear from within or in unexpected ways – as dreams, an insight sparked by a glimpse of something, or words overheard in a passing conversation. This existential green light is the culmination of a long gestation period that required patient perseverance on your part. Not only has it been a test of character, it has also reflected the depth of your own self-worth. We become integrated and mature by watching, waiting, and trusting that all these insights and impressions will be added to the cauldron and will, one day, be fully “cooked.” Trusting from your core that there is perfection in the timing of all things keeps the cauldron simmering nicely – and as time passes its fragrance begins to permeate every aspect of your life.

Learning to relax with life’s give and take, without imposing limits or calculating gains and losses, creates wisdom, compassion, and the ability to discern what is appropriate in even the most difficult circumstances. This sharpened awareness works in harmony with an intuitive knowing that immediately senses the correct means of approach, and who to approach when help is needed.

The Cauldron is wisdom that purifies the false, superfluous, and superficial, and shifts the emphasis from the mundane to the higher values that help us live in peaceful harmony with nature and each other. by defining and refining. The Cauldron increases our capacity for clarity by illuminating our virtues. Wisdom is luminous. When we live creatively in self-awareness and self-mastery, the resulting luminosity, merely by its presence, effortlessly exposes ignorance and darkness of all kinds.

Perceiving life as an invitation that only awaits your participation triggers a subtle dismantling of rigid thinking patterns that have created insecurity and fear of change. You are at a crossroads now. The path may not be visible, but you sense and welcome the first signs of the deep shift that is taking place. There may be a greater sense of freedom in your words and actions, and in how you relate with others.

Finally, you can appreciate the unique individual you are. Offering that uniqueness to others is the way to return something, in gratitude, to Existence. The more you give, the more you will continue to be rejuvenated. Your life can become your art, your prayer, your meditation. In its wisdom and abundance, Tao gently guides us to follow its course, and when we do so, it gives back a thousandfold.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

The cauldron is a representation of the true authentic essence of You. It is your heart and Soul, it is your life experience; the lessons, the love, the loss, the pain, the victories, the choices, mistakes and secrets. It contains all the moments; all the truth and all the illusions;  all the thoughts and feelings that make you… You! And where it is now is exactly where it is supposed to be, it has boiled away the unnecessary and made a magical brew of deep sacred wisdom, faith, trust, love and light. All your hopes and dreams, all your inspirations and aspirations are now slowly bubbling to the surface to be used for the Highest Good of All and your highest good.

This is magic; the this is where your inner Divinity shines through. It is a concentration of all the hard work and effort you have put in, all paying off. It is the abundance of the Universe shown in the smooth reduction of your elements of Being.

This is also a turning point. A point when you can reveal your true gifts, your previously hidden talents and your newly discovered self-worth. Doors are opening, opportunities abound.

Anything is possible now as you use delve into this cauldron of your very being: the culmination of  every lifetime, every lesson, every gift; across all time and space… all together finally….

Creating your pure and magical elixir which can be used to create and manifest your wildest dreams.

Namaste
