Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Temple, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

The Temple: “The lover and the beloved meet in sacred space. They take respite from cares of the world, entering into sanctuary where only they exist. You are in need of this. Meditation, making love, connection and dance, intimacy and surrender into the moment. Your body and soul need to enter into the Temple and participate in sacred ceremony. Choose to gift this to yourself. Set aside time. Turn off the computer and mobile telephone. Turn on music and set the lighting. Be in the present moment. Do you remember your body? Ah, yes, here it is. Can you be in its temple with presence and delight?

This oracle brings guidance to take time out to smell the flowers, savour the pleasures of life and renew your connection to the inner lover. Your sensuality wants to come out and play. You are encouraged to explore scent, touch, taste and feeling. You are encouraged to play with colour. What moves you? What brings you into connection with yourself in this moment again? It is the wholeness of divine self-connection in sacred space that will best nourish you now.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

“Love should be given as it is received

On this day I grant you the love

Of a thousand mountain streams

And the pleasure of a hundred bleats

From a new born baby fawn

For I too cry for love

And like the fawn

I cry with the hunger of being alive

And on this day

I cry for the happiness of giving

And the warmth of receiving

And the softness of your gentle touch

It is moments like these when I smile

For the someone who will always care.”

~ Richard Cohn

Summer is in full swing here in the Western Hemisphere. A juicy time. A sensual, beautiful, expansive and creative time. A time for Love, Light and freedom of expression. When we explore our sensual sides, remember this doesn’t have to mean we are purely sexually driven. Sensuality is so much more than that. It can be found in the creative juices of our powerful ability to manifest our dreams and desires. Painting a reality in technicolour, high definition fifth dimensional colour, Light, feel, taste and sound.

What are you creating now? What are you birthing? What is possible?

Wear clothing that is flowing, soft with beautiful colours. Put a little extra attention into your self expression. This is the perfect time to surround yourself with beauty: fresh flowers, your favourite music, bare feet, warm sunlight and starry skies. Now is about embracing all that we are and all that we wish to be. It is about being grateful for where we are, where we came from and where we are going. Grateful for the journey and the many destinations along the way.

This could be a day of flirting and smiling and embracing. It could be a day of playfulness, relaxation and playing hooky from the mundane. It could be a day to plan a vacation or go to the spa. It could be the perfect day to go get a little treat and sit under a tree.

Light a white candle and bless your life. You are on the right path. Everything is in place. All is as it should be for the next to unfold.

Feel the magic, roll around in it, surrender to it.

Namaste

Divine Sensuality

Divine Sensuality: “Making Love, Erotica”

The Mermaids Sing: “Yes, the mermaids are protectors and champions of sexuality and freedom, allure and power! To experience physical bliss is not a purely physical event – there is an intimate connection that connects people who make love, or kiss, or even just shake hands… who touch… and when we exchange this great intimacy with another, there is established between us a strong energetic connection. So it is wise to consider who we make love with, and when, and where, and very much why. But there is also an undercurrent in our culture that still sees love making, sensuality and the love of the pleasure of the body and the celebration and elevation of that pleasure to an art as something that is laden and twisted with guilt. The tainted sexual beliefs of the medieval era which led to a hatred of the body, of sexuality, and a demonization of women are still with us in some ways. Even the sexualization of our bodies undermines our ability to make love; to pleasure ourselves, and to enjoy this great pleasure and joy that has been gifted to us. The mermaid has come to be a symbol of the temptress, the woman who wishes to draw men and lovers to her – and in many ways, she is the symbol of danger. And so it is with our sensuality.

If you have drawn this card  it is likely you are ready to explore and dive into your own physical expression of bliss: it may be through making love with a cared-for other, achieving greater intimacy in your relationships, or even experiencing blissful sensual moments while receiving a massage or dancing… but this card encourages you to reconnect with the love of your natural physicality, and to explore the pleasure your sensuality can bring to you, and to begin to understand and untangle any of the lingering cultural or personal guilt you may have about this. There are man beliefs  many taboos too: that women who enjoy sexual feelings and evoke them in others are impure, courting danger, threatening to themselves and to other women, and dangerous to men. But the truth is, we all have a seductress within us, a mermaid-like being who dwells within our psyche and subconscious, who is able to show us how to pleasure ourselves and others, and how healing this sacred sensuality is and can be.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “There may be mistrust and even some hatred of the body, the mistrust and hatred of women, the mistrust and hatred of the sensual world. This is often expressed by choosing to believe that sex and people who love and enjoy sex, and keep it sacred, are only desiring to temp you – that they will not fulfill their promises. It may be some time since you experienced true physical intimacy with another, or with yourself, and it is an area of your life which is calling to be awakened… orgasm may be challenging to reach, and there can be sexual dysfunctions. Sex is not a sport, or a competitive game with only one outcome. It is about expression, and interweaving, and it is a journey into the soul of another via the body. If this can be understood, and if you are brave enough, this can be recreated within a relationship whose sexual spring has run dry, or a relationship can be created with another that is sensually and spiritual fulfilling. It is time to accept that there are so many ways to love. You may be judging another’s sexual preference and lifestyle, but you are beginning to discover that there are many ways in which love is expressed physically. Embrace the rainbow that is Love Manifest!”

Divination: “It is possible at this time that you are being judged by others for the sexual choices and mates you have chosen or may be about to choose. Please know that it is your birthright to choose freely who you give yourself to, and why – the exchange, whether this feels like it is a good choice for you, personally. It is time to put aside societal and even cultural and traditional norms and judgments about who we choose, and how we choose to enact sensuality. There is a boundary being broken through – as long as this is a free choice of your own, and one that brings you wisdom, health, joy and respect, it is not for others to make this choice. It is yours alone. Break through the fear!”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

Oooooh things might take a turn for the steamy!! Are you ready? How does this make you feel? Do you have any fear around intimacy? The Universe may be challenging you here: to accept yourself and others unconditionally and transcend from the typical judgemental and critical thoughts about the human body that you are used to thinking. There is so much more to us than ripped abs and anti wrinkle creams, but we have allowed our magic to be stolen from us; by the porn industry, but the beauty industry and by the weightloss industry.

What if you just decided to enjoy your body, with or without someone else? Bold I know, this is often such a taboo subject. But seriously? Why wait until you feel you are worthy and what if that never really happens? What if we never match up to those (PHOTOSHOPPED!!!) supermodels and porn stars? What if someone out there really can love us just as we are? What if this is all part of the next level of consciousness? Complete acceptance and deep sacred connection, kundalini energy and pure open hearted love… sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?

And believe me, I understand! I have never been happy with my legs, wished that my stomach was flatter, tried various diet and exercise plan only to have my body return to exactly the same shape the moment I falter! And finally I am at an age where I am wondering why I spent all that time, money and energy trying to improve the way I look. Now I do yoga every day for my sanity, my inner resolve, and to find peace and harmony from within. Yes, it does give me one heck of a workout, and yes that does help me look a bit better in my jeans, but really it’s about the way I feel, that is why I do it. The physical benefits are icing on the cake. Eating healthy and drinking lots of water is also to feel better, looks to follow. No more diets for me, I have really tuned in to what feels good to me. It’s not always perfect by any means, but it feels way better than someone telling me what I am and am not allowed to do! It feels pure and authentic and grounded, because it is a nurturing process, not a lack mentality.

You are being invited to explore the delicious aspect of being in the body, right here, right now. Pull yourself right into your body and really use all your senses. Feel the water course down your body in the shower. Feel the texture of the clothing on your skin. Stop and close your eyes while you are eating, explore the tastes and scents. Dive into Divine Sensuality and allow yourself to be completely worthy of receiving the amazing abundance of sensual pleasures of this Earthly plane.

See. Feel. Listen closely. Taste. Touch. Breathe it in.

Namaste

Woman Of Light

Woman Of Light, from the Journey Of Love, by Alana Fairchild, Richard Cohn and Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Woman Of Light, from the Journey Of Love, by Alana Fairchild, Richard Cohn and Rassouli

Woman Of Light: “Pure is my joy, my celebration, I know the Divine to be eternal! There is no limit to my peace, to my pleasure, as I rise and rise and rise again. Capable am I of receiving the light, of accepting the next level of illumination. I am sacred flesh coming to light. I am the walking temple, the living goddess, she who shines with truth. I come to you now, I am one with you now. I am the awakened one and the awakener.

This oracle brings you guidance that you are to be witness to the presence of an awakened being. Either within your own Self as apart of your spiritual destiny or in the form of a beloved other. An awakened one is in your midst or soon will be. Receive the blessing that emanates from such a being, for to behold one is a gracious spiritual gift that will lift you to the next step of your path. If you are having trouble discerning the true presence of an awakened teacher in your midst, or even in your own being, remember that nothing is asked from you by such awakened ones but loving devotion so that they may serve the awakening of all living beings. It requires much karmic grace to be granted immediate access to an awakened being, even more to become such a living light! Take delight!”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

I asked God for a deepening of my love

Without realizing that the deeper I was willing to go

The more it involved letting go

Of any part of myself that wanted to love and still be safe

In surrender to the possible

Lay the greatest potential for love

At levels before unknown

Like a cistern that holds the nectar of life

And gives its precious liquid

Only to be filled again with nature’s flow

Such knowingness is a gift

For if you can embrace the blessing

You can live without question

Relaxing and replenishing

With each breath, with each kidss

Always whole”*

~ By Richard Cohn

The person who is coming into your life now, as suggested by yesterday’s message, is an asset to your spiritual enlightenment. It may be that they assist you in reaching the next level of consciousness, it may be that they simply help you to raise your vibration by experiencing joy and inspiration in their presence. Whatever the effect they have on you, or you have on them, is beneficial not only to you, but to everyone whose lives you both touch.

If it is the blossoming of a romantic relationship, your love together will send out Light that helps to heal and lift the spirit’s of others. If it is a friendship, the combination of your energies will uplift everyone who comes into contact with you. If it is a business partnership, what you create will be of service to many. Whatever the combination is, it is an extremely powerful and positive one, which will help to bring more love and light into the world than you may think possible.

This Love and Light will be a catalyst for those around you, creating an alchemical shift from vibrational “lead” to blazing Gold. It will create shifts that will have residual after effects for quite some time, possibly months or years to come; even if it is short lived, it will serve a much larger purpose.

This is an exciting time! The most important things to remember are: To stay your course, do not compromise in order to “fit in” but be absolutely true to yourself and your values. Recognize your gifts, the magic is very much in you, just as it is in someone else, don’t put them above you or give away your power, this is about equality, seeing the gifts that you have as well as those of others. And lastly, listen to your heart, if the person or situation in front of you doesn’t feel right, then it is not the right person or situation. Let it go and the right fit will happen. Have Faith.

Trust.

Namaste

Hathor ~ Pleasure

Published September 17, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Hathor ~ Pleasure, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Hathor ~ Pleasure, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hathor ~ Pleasure, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Hathor ~ Pleasure:

“When you come to me

I take your spirit

from the stars

and clothe it

in a body of sensation

to finely focus you on form

to benignly bask you in bliss

You are here to experience delight

enjoy gratification

know satisfaction

have pleasure

in all ways

in all modes

in all aspects.

Pleasure makes you juicy

twinkles your eyes

enlivens your life force

The exquisiteness of exitence

is pleasure

Get ready to feel sooooo good.”

“Hathor is here to tell you that the way to wholeness for you lies in connecting with what brings you pleasure and in experiencing pleasure. Have you been taught that pleasure is forbidden, something sinful or evil? Are you so busy fulfilling your commitments that pleasure is relegated to the bottom of your list? Do you deny that pleasure in order to get work done? STOP! Time to change all that. Pleasure relives stress and relaxes and refreshes you. Pleasure is the body’s way of expressing health and vitality. Pleasure is the oil that keep you lubricated and lush. Hathor says that since you have chosen to be here in a physical body, you might as well enjoy it. Don’t wait for others to fulfill this need. Plan to give yourself pleasure daily and you will find satisfaction dancing in your life.”*

~by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

It’s Ok to delight in our senses, that is why we came to this physical plane. It is Ok to pursue pleasure, to take some time away from the grind and to enjoy our lives. There is no need to put it off, waiting until we deserve it, and there is no need to wallow in self indulgence either. It’s all about balance. Sprinkling your life with passion and pleasure raises your vibration, drawing more of what you wish for to you. Experiencing joy through our senses is the entire reason we exist here in the material realm. Seeing the bright, beautiful colours. Hearing the music and laughter. Feeling the wind through our hair or a caress on our skin. Tasting salty, sweet and savory.

The trick is finding ways to immerse ourselves in our senses each day rather than putting it off for another day, while simultaneously being mindful of the health and wholeness of our physical bodies. Obviously an over indulgent lifestyle can lead to health issues too, over eating, drinking or any other vises can be detrimental to our health. Indulging in drugs or drinking is also not ideal as it actually dampens our senses. What we are talking about here is finding simple but profound ways to incorporate sensuality into our lives through experiencing the present moment. This can be found in the forest or at the beach. It can be the feel of the sun on your face, the smell of the rain, admiring a spectacular sunset. A hug from a child, your pet being ecstatic that you came home, or a kiss from your lover.

Hathor is here to help you experience your life in full detail. No putting it off until things have fallen perfectly into place.

Be the Goddess that you are and see the beauty and abundance in every moment.

Breathe it in. Embrace it.

Namaste

Bast ~ Play

Published September 16, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Bast ~ Play, from the Goddess Oracle, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Bast ~ Play, from the Goddess Oracle, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Bast ~ Play, from the Goddess Oracle, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Bast ~ Play:

“I swirl and twirl

I hide and seek

romping and ranging

funning and frolicking

my opportunities

for self-amusement are endless

and the pleasure

that it gives me

makes me purr

Life’s challenges never stop me

for I know how to whole myself

with play.”

Mythology: In Egypt, Bast (pronounced bahst), the cat-headed Goddess, adn Sekhmet, the loin-headed Goddess, represented two powerful aspects of the sun: the life-giving, pleasurable aspect and the burning, destroying aspect. Bast was worshipped at Bubastis, where vast celebrations were held. She ruled pleasure, joy, music, dance, health and healing, the moon, and of course, cats.

Meaning Of The Card: “Bast bats at you with her paw to urge you to come and play with her. It is time to divert yourself with something that is amusing, fun and totally recreational. Has play been a low priority for you? Do you know how to play? what does play mean to you? Perhaps you have been working so hard that you have forgotten to give yourself a play break. Bast tells you the way to nurture wholeness lies in engaging in play. It is time to discover the ways you are able to play and do it!”*

~by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto

Bast is here to insist that we lighten up and have some fun! We get so serious, even when we are seeking joy and fulfillment! Now it’s time to let loose a little and embrace the lighter side of life. Dance, sing, get silly! Doing something fun physically is a great way of moving old energies and infusing your physical body with higher vibrations. Laughter is a huge immune booster, giving us a natural lift that can last for hours!

Think of kittens, and how focused they are on play! They will spend hours stalking, jumping, batting and playing; even while falling off stuff and bending themselves in hilarious contortions to get their prey! Embody this focused fun ~ find a way to feel like a happy and playful kitten. And a little mischief can’t hurt either!

Put on your favourite tunes and sing and dance your way around your house. Spend some time playing with a child or pet in your life, get down to their level and really spend some quality time; build a fort and eat chocolate chip cookies, make a new toy for your pet and take the time to play with them. Watch a funny movie, or read a comical book. Paint a silly picture. Play dress up with your kids… (or your partner if you are up for it, I’m sure they would be thrilled!!)

Find your fun side. You know what makes you laugh. Maybe you have a friend who always seems like so much fun. Give them a call and set up a time to meet. Or better yet, decide to be that friend today and lighten up someone elses world.

Take time to play.

Namaste

Joy

Joy, Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco: Joy

Joy: Rejoicing in the present.”

I stand here,

I am where I am,

Fully alive and present

Stress is a sham.

“Besides the “Hooooo” of a not so scary trick or treating ghost on Halloween evening, one of the most common sounds you will hear is laughter. There is so much joy at Halloween and it can be one of the most fun nights of the year if we allow that into our lives.

We lead busy lives: whether we are studying, run a household, have a demanding job or all of them at once, it seems there is little time for us to stop, be present and enjoy exactly where we are at this time. It has been said that the first step of real change is stopping and acknowledging that we actually need this change. Whilst sometimes we might feel that there is little to feel happy about and much to change, we can always feel grateful for something right now and there is power in that position.

It is time to find the joy in this moment and to find that joy more often. Should this card come up in your divination, it heralds the arrival of more happiness and profound joy into your life. It is a good omen!

Actively seek pleasure and build more of the things that give you personal joy and laughter in your life. After all, we build in appointments for the dentist, why not for our own pleasure?”*

– Stacey Demarco

Ok, so I have to say that the look on this woman’s face isn’t exactly rapturous joy, but yet there is something serene about her and the fact that she is surrounded by large maple leaves that make her look like she is sporting large angel wings makes up for it all!

This is a recurring theme… finding joy, scheduling in me-time, planting ourselves in the present and enjoying all that life has to offer. This is another reminder to make time every day to do something that you love, to surround yourself with loving and supporting people and to carve away a few of the responsibilities and obligations that are causing you stress.

Halloween is a reminder to make it fun! Trick or treating is such a big deal in our house (although I have a habit of throwing away all the terrible junk they get after, so this year, as they are totally on to me, we are trading for a toy instead!!). But it’s not about the candy, it’s about the overall experience: choosing the perfect costume and spending the time and attention to detail getting ready; it’s about socializing with the neighbours (well for us it is as we are in a pretty rural area and know many of our neighbours over the years); and about accumulating a booty of enormous, sugary proportions! I know that not everyone feels this way, that people see it as a night of vandalism and scary costumes, but if you have a little fun with it you can change your perspective!

Regardless of Halloween, this is just another gentle reminder to find joy every day in a way that is yours. Find your passion and schedule in some time to enjoy partaking in it, no guilt, no shame, no compromise.

Just joy.

Namaste
