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

Hathor ~ Pleasure

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.”*

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

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!”*

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, 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
