Serapis Bey: “Ascension”

“Move into your true self. Rise above the darkness – the light is here.”

About Serapis Bey: “Serapis Bey is the light keeper in charge of ascension. He once served as a priest in Luxor, Egypt, healing those passing on to cross over into the light. Now he is a presence we can call on in order to ascend. Ascension means rising up – it reminds us of the story of Christ being resurrected after death. This means that Serpais Bey can guide us from the lowest states of being, back to the light. His energy is almost like that of a phoenix, giving us the support to move out of our own hell or darkness into a space that supports our growth.”

Extended Message from Serapis Bey: “The stars cannot shine without darkness. You may have experienced a low state of being, trauma, or depression, but this is a new beginning. Become aware of growth. There is always room for improvement. There’s also a sense of presentation now. You may be receiving documentation or certification to acknowledgment your growth or experience. It’s important to cherish this time and to realize that without the challenges or obstacles you have faced, you would not be as strong, powerful or focused as you are today. You are ascending personally personally and spiritually at this time and the universe is here to support it.”*

Here we have another reference to the transformation and transmutation of the energies of the 8:8 Lion’s Gateway. What is darkness must be brought into the Light. And the Light is here, Now! This is a message of such profound change that it resembles resurrection ~ the phoenix rising up from the ashes. New life. Death of the old and Rebirth. Complete transformation and radical shifting change.

We are awakening to ascend. We are realizing why we are here. Remembering our Soul Path, and why we came here lifetime after lifetime. We are almost able to complete our mission and start again in the creation of the New Earth.

What else is possible here? What have you learned so far on this journey, in this particular incarnation? How can you apply your previous life lessons and experience to the rest of your life now? Where can you release these lessons and avoid repeating patterns? Where is change necessary in order to grow; where have you been holding on for too long and what areas of your life are calling you to expand and flourish?

You are creating the rest of your life, right here and now. Look closely at where you are putting your energy, your focus and your intention. Take responsibility. Be the driving force in your own life.

And so it is

Namaste

Temperance

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

Temperance: “She gathers herself, reaches within for the calm center, that place of balance. From her center, she feels the dragon and phoenix stirring. They twine about one another. They embrace in a sinuous twisting of scale and feather until it seems that one melts into the other. They coil around each other in a timeless battle for supremacy, choreographed in an elegant waltz of give and take, push and pull. They swirl about her in a maelstrom that assaults the senses. Like a maestro, she watches over and reins in one or the other when she senses any imbalance so that harmony is maintained.

Earth and sky, fire and water, male and female, summer’s warmth and lush growth and winter’s chill winds bearing down: these opposites flow one into the other in the cyclical and endless push of yin and yang. They are perfectly balanced against one another; in fact, they are given purpose and definition by the existence of diametric opposites.

Without water, fire rages utterly unchecked and all consuming, burning itself out eventually in a terrible conflagration. And without fire, the waters are lightless and drowning, flooding until there is only a still, silent mirror of nothing. By defining each other’s limits, they both become imbued life and become life-giving, tempered to co-exist in just the right balance, for too much of one, and the other will be smothered.”

Card Meaning: “Harmony and equilibrium, balancing of opposites, healing. Moderation of extremes, self-restraint, harnessing absolute forces, and reining the in to be wielded to a purpose. Holding opposites apart from one another denies their power of unity. By drawing them together to merge in a measured fashion, and understanding what one bestows upon the other, a beautiful synthesis can be created. Sometimes all that holds the two apart is a wall of belief. Being flexible and understanding that there is more than one way to perceive the world can go a long way towards breaking down that invisible wall.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Love can come in many forms and if we are going to anchor the energies of the Christ Consciousness back here on Gaia, we must be able to align with and present all of the aspects of love available to us. There is openness and receptivity in love, seeing the Divine connection in each and every living being reflected back to us; showing us our own connection to it. There is acceptance; loving despite where someone is at, what they have done or are capable of. Loving despite the past or the present holds space for them to align with a higher frequency in the future, even the immediate future. Releasing judgment. Releasing fear. Embracing the polarities of our differences; bringing them together in balance.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, finally meeting as equals. Playing their individual roles and also coming together to make something alchemical, powerful and profound. The power of the dragon and the rebirth of the phoenix. With the two energies working together, anything can be co-created.

Open to possibility. Open to co-creation. Open to harmony, acceptance and to receptivity.

It is time to open yourself up to Love.

Namaste

The Desert

The Desert, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Desert, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

The Desert: “Sacred Archetypal Element Of Fire”

“In the desert, we are surrounded by sand and a fiery red sky, with sun pouring down on the ground and wavy energy rising into the air. This is not a mirage, but rather another dimension – the domain of fire. Many mystics have quested for answers to life’s deepest questions in that place of aridity, fire and heat, for it is a place of true transformation. The energy of fire is quick; it consumes everything in its path in the blink of an eye.

The energies of fire push us toward the death of the old and the struggle for new birth, for when we go out into the desert we realize how tenuous our hold is on life, and how easily and quickly we might perish. Yet it is in our willingness to die to the old and leap into the fires of transformation that we surrender the outcome and the future to wisdom tempering quality of fire: it burns away the dross, which includes everything except the essence of what needs to be carried forth. Out of the flaming heat, the scorching fires of transformation, true wisdom is born, rising up out of the desert pyre like a phoenix with brilliant multicolored feathers glinting in the relentless sun.

When you draw this card, it indicates that you are in a fiery process of death, rebirth, and transformation. Spend some time sitting before an open fire or in the sunlight. Light some candles, especially in the dark days of winter. As you meditate on the desert and fire, consider what no longer serves you and offer it to the fire. Ask the fire to embrace and guide you safely through your transformation. Fire can provide you with the courage to face whatever challenge is before you, and the energy and vitality to accomplish your goals with responsiveness, wit and passion.”*

Venus is back direct and things are going to heat up a little, it’s about time! Oh how I have missed our beautiful Goddess of Love energy. We were forced deep into the nether regions of our psyche to unearth all that old pain and trauma concerning relationships and self love that we has been holding us back. It’s been challenging, but oh so necessary for us to purge and clear all that old junk out. The future is not the past. We have learned our lessons and we have released them. We are finally ready to move forward fearlessly, giving and receiving love.

Are you ready?

Ok not to spoil the fun… but be aware that this is where we are headed, but there may be just a little residual energy to deal with before things get really juicy… sigh… just when we thought it was all passion and love…

So here we have the desert… and do not worry, the element of Fire will help us to burn away all the fear, all the doubt, all the excuses and anything and everything else that has been keeping us stuck for way too long. It was high time to clean house! Now take all that old clutter you don’t need anymore and offer it up to fire. Literally write it all down, light a candle, and burn it away (obviously being careful not to light yourself or anything else on fire while you are at it!)

You are the phoenix, rising up from the ashes. What will you create now? What will  you allow to come into  your life now? What else is possible?

Invite love and passion and sensuality.

Be love and passion and sensuality.

Ooh, is it getting hot in here or is it just me?

Namaste

The Crested Ibis

Published April 10, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Crested Ibis, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Crested Ibis, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

The Crested Ibis: “Sacred Archetypal Element of Air”

“The Crested Ibis, known to ancient Egyptians as the akh bird, is associated with the element of air, and with Thoth as he relates to the cosmic mysteries. The crested ibis is in essence the phoenix rising from the fire. It speaks not only of rebirth but also of the clear thinking that gives you the understanding of your journey. This beautiful bird is a powerful symbol of the ability to conceive of a resulting creation in advance of its actualization; it refers to the preconceived idea and the goal, both of which are contained in the mind.

The domain of the element of air includes communication, language, and articulation. It is through air that we speak words of power, and it is by making sound and music – toning, chanting, singing, speaking, laughing and breathing – that we express the element of air. Through our connection with air we find sound within ourselves and communicate directly from the throat. Asthetics, including beauty and pleasure, also exist in the domain of air.

When this card comes up in your reading, it is time to look at how you express yourself, especially in your communications with others. You have a valuable ally in the Sacred Crested Ibis. When you meditate on this card, you will feel your consciousness rise as you are uplifted to a higher perspective, from which you can see whatever situation or question you have brought in a new way. Use this perspective for clarity and ‘Thothfulness” in your thinking and in your speaking.

Drawing this card can also mean that it is time to lighten up. Air will assist you to experience and express wisdom with joy and a light heart so that you can appreciate the humor and playfulness available all around you.

Air is your ally. Breathe deeply. Free yourself. Experience awe; then express your gratitude with exuberance.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

The Ibis comes like the Phoenix; a sign of the transformation you are going through right now. Rising up out of the ashes, eyes focused on the stars. Freedom is yours at last.

This rebirth comes with a blank slate; one that you must paint with the colours of your thoughts and emotions; manifesting your new reality. This process gives you free license to reinvent who you are in the world using creative self-expression. This means taking off any masks you have become comfortable wearing; ones that you put in place over the lifetimes to protect you, to hide your true identity. Speak your truth clearly and unapologetically. Choose those you hold close to you with discernment. Incorporate mindfulness into every moment of every single day. Move through the world with absolute integrity. Let as much Light and Love into your Being as you possibly can; upgrading moment by moment, minute by minute, hour by hour.

Visualize yourself rising above the old and soaring up into the new. Feel that Lightness of Being. Know that this is your new reality, and that everything you have worked to release, that which no longer serves you, will fall away. Leaving you perfectly poised for your brand new life.

Namaste

Nine Of Wands

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Nine Of Wands, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realms, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Nine Of Wands: “He felt it first in his core. A spark in his solar plexus began to glow and then burn. The energy radiated throughout his body. With every movement, his aura crackled and popped. The desire, the need, to create, to do, engulfed him. He welcomed the heat and reveled in the inner burning. acknowledging his passion, he danced with the energy until he became the energy, until he lost control and the energy became him and he was lost to it. With a bust of flame, a red heat that glowed white-hot at the center, he was gone.

Consciousness melting, body dissolving, he fought to keep himself solid, to no avail. Liquid heat now danced in him, singing a new song with powerful tones and a chaotic melody. It moved and churned in him until it became him, until he found himself. Transformed. Tried by fire. Tempered. All that was no longer him burned away, and he discovered himself anew. Stronger now, he rose, truer and purer, from that which destroyed him, or perhaps from that which created him. He danced himself into being.

Divinatory Meaning: “The ephemeral power of fire is so beguiling. One taste of the creative force, the passionate drive, makes us feel so alive that we want more. We seek out the intoxicating thrill of doing more, creating more, being more. As we achieve more, our confidence grows. Successes increase. We take on more than we can manage until we collapse under the weight of the ephemeral flames. In that state, we are forced to reassess, to consider our priorities. What is it that we really want? What is it that matters most? From the center of the chaos we have created, we reemerge with the certainty of our true passion. With that singular focus, we find new power.”*

~by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

We are facing the element of fire; complete transmutation through the burning away of the old. Rebuilding from the ground up. Every aspect taken into account. The darkness and the Light dismantled, purified, concentrated. Completely transformed. A metamorphosis. Rising up from the ashes of our “story” of our identity. Rising up from our old ways, leaving all that dense energy behind.

This is Alchemy. Turning lead to gold; darkness to Light. This is Life expanded, stretched, remodeled. A second chance; an overhaul; a revamping; a complete recreation from the ground up. And you get to decide how it looks, how it feels, what it holds, who you share it with. 

First face the fire. Burn away that which is no longer needed. Offer it to the flame with pure heart; trust that what is coming is better than anything you could even have imagined.

The best is yet to come. Or maybe it’s here now.

Your choice.

Namaste

Goddess Ishtar and Astrophyllite

Goddess Ishtar & Astrophyllite: “Daring Rebirth”

“We bring you the empowerment of daring rebirth. The bold spirit in you claims the divine defiance of the phoenix. It refuses defeat at every turn! No matter who or what may seek to overpower your spirit, your peace, your loving heart and your wild optimism, you shall triumph in a divine and daring rebirth. Do no limit yourself with expectations – whether from another or your own mind. There is so much possible for you – a radically different and new you to become! Believe and so shall it be.”

“It takes daring to imagine a new life. Boldness of spirit and willingness are needed to allow yourself to embrace and live that different life. You can be in this world as you choose to be. The truth of you can have many different versions – some fearful, some free. There is so much that is possible for you to experience in this life. you have the light and power of a living sun inside of you!

Rebirth is new life – a different life – a different you, that is truthful, authentic and yet more vibrant, radiant, vivid and free. It is possible for you to have all this. The requirement for rebirth however, is an experience of shamanic death. This is not physical death. It is spiritual transformation. It requires that whatever is keeping you from living a happier, freer, more beautiful, joyful and soul-satisfying life  be sacrificed, be allowed to die, so to speak, so you can be born anew. To the extent you have believed yourself to be those things, felt attached to them or that your identity was wrapped up in them, you will feel like you are dying along with them. You are changed through this process. You will not feel, think, behave or believe as you did prior to it. Shamanic death creates transformation so profound as to allow a more real you to emerge from the process. it strips you of what you have believed yourself to be and what is left is the real you, unencumbered, unveiled and true.

The need for daring is because shamanic death and rebirth can frighten the mind. Whilst you will be celebrating after the process happens, when you are going through it, your fears will be stimulated. This is supposed to happen. How else can you lay your fears aside unless you confront them and choose to let them go? If they are hiding in the shadows, you cannot deal with them.

Your fear might be of success, of your own value, of being alone, or being rejected abandoned, judged, ridiculed, shamed or ignored. Your fear might be that you’ll mess up or regret your decisions. It might be that you won’t know who you are if you are not your job, relationship, role as a parent or healer, or any other limited identity you have tried to project your entire being into. Life on the other side of that fear might seem unfathomable to your mind. You might worry that you will simply cease to exist. Just to be clear however, no one who has transitioned from fear-based reality into love-based reality has ever said, or will ever say, “I miss my fear-based reality!” Although it can be painful, what you are giving up will not be a cause for regret.

The extent to which you are willing to dare, to confront and release your fear (rather than believe your fears are accurate reflections of reality), is the extent to which you can experience rebirth. Your rebirth can be so radical, so daring, that you will feel as though you are living an entirely different life within this one lifetime.

The Oracle of Daring Rebirth comes to you when there is an opportunity to confront a fear and release it, to let go of a belief system or behaviour that is getting in the way of the life you actually dream of living. It’s your decision whether to challenge that fear now, later or at all. If you are doubting your readiness and capacity however, this oracle suggests that you are more ready than you think you are and that your time is now.

There is a new you emerging. It might shock your friends and family. People may accuse you of not being you anymore, but you are becoming more you than ever before. Trust the new you emerging in the greater authenticity and strength you are discovering in yourself. You do not have to squash your being to fit in with the expectations of any other. Through daring rebirth, you tap in to the courage you need not only to go through the process of transformation, but the spiritual sassiness you need to give yourself permission to love and be the new you that emerges at the other side of it. Treasure that self reborn, for it has been hard won and is a divine treasure.”*

June is here… finally! Mercury retrograde is over… (for now), and the planets are going to take it a little easier on us. The energies are lifting. We can breathe!

This is going to be a high energy whirlwind of a month, with a chance at new opportunities and even the possibility of a complete transformation followed by a rebirth!

Buckle your seatbelts!

And

Let the fun begin…

Dark Moon

Dark Moon, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle, by Lucy Cavendish

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dark Moon, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle, by Lucy Cavendish

Dark Moon: “Maturation, Growing up, Introspection, Know thyself”

“This faery being seems shrouded in deep contemplation. Crooked in the cradle of a darkening moon form the northern hemisphere perspective, a dark air of regret swirls about her. This sad being represents the darkening – the time when we self-assess – and like her, grapple with understanding our response to a real test. She feels withdrawn, very young, very child-like, raw and untried. This is no failure of hers – she is facing the sadness that can lie within, asking the difficult questions. On her head curl the horns of the ram, showing she is a fiery being, one who has been brave and headstrong, and who for a time has stepped back to unfamiliar territory – that of the questioning of self. She is one of the few of her kind left, and her dilemma is that of feeling isolated and winnowed out, and of being treated unjustly. She faces a quiet kind of extinction, and knows that whatever she chooses to do now will determine her fate. And so she takes this time to ponder, and to sit, and to understand before acting. She is both masculine and feminine, her horns indicating many years of being on the earth, as they are mature, thick and heavily curling. She has survived on little over the years, and asked only to keep going. But now it seems she faces a real threat, and must take steps to not only survive herself, but to ensure that those like her continue on. From this dark time of deep contemplation, she will emerge and come out again into the world with strength, determination and knowledge. She will flourish again – but for now, it is the time of the dark night of the soul; and it is necessary and good, for of it wisdom will be born, and her kind will live wild and free once again.”

Divinatory Meaning: “Interestingly, this can be interpreted as a menopausal card for women, or one of seeming “bad news” bringing about change, as their moon times move to darkening. It is a time for understanding the frailties of the self and understanding the wisdom your years on this earth have taught  you. Knowing that there is “nothing” that can be done at this time. Knowing that you need to understand where you are responsible for the current situation. Learning and taking ownership of responsibility will create freedom and new opportunities. Move through this and feel renewed, alive and as though your own personal evolution is finally, finally underway. It will never be too late. The tests and the subsequent wisdom make this life here so worthwhile and will create your beautiful legacy for generations to come. You will rise up from this, as the phoenix is reborn from the ashes, just as the moon will wax and grow full once again. Have hope, but do spend time in contemplation.”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

We must experience a death before we can experience a rebirth. Sometimes, we deny ourselves the natural cycles of our lives, feeling that we must cling on to the old, instead of embracing the new. This is so very true in the aging process, particularly in our current society. Both women and men are clinging on for dear life to youth, through plastic surgery, extreme diet and exercise programs, and finding much younger “trophy” spouses. They are denying their life experience in trade for a younger appeal. Growth is denied. Can you imagine this in the natural world? Dogs refusing to get past the puppy stage? Trees trying to stay sapplings? Frogs trying to appear as tadpoles for just a little longer? Seems pretty silly and unnecessary when you look at it that way doesn’t it?

Embrace your deep wisdom; your life experience. Share it with the world. It is part of your gift, and when you step into this aspect, your light will shine more brightly than ever. This is part of self love and acceptance. It’s about loving every phase of this amazing physical body… yup, the meat suit! That got you through this life, no matter how “flawed” you perceive it to be!

We know we are more than this body. We know that we are eternal Souls, experiencing the physical plane. We are here for a much higher purpose; to help in the ascension of Gaia! News flash: It doesn’t matter what you look like when your are comfortable in your true Soul self, walking your path, following your Soul purpose.

Isn’t that a huge relief? That you can let all that other stuff go?

We can fly. At any age. With any body.

We just have to decide that we can.

Know what you want. And go get it.

You are so lovable and worthy; you are exactly your perfect Divine Self.

Namaste

Dee
