The Dragon: “Power ~ Strength”

The Animal Guides Of Avalon

“The Dragon come to offer you its power and strength, to protect and fortify you on this leg of your journey. The Dragon symbolizes true power and reminds you that this infinite source is not found within your personality or ego.

True power resides deep within your soul. So call on the Dragon’s spiritual power and strength, and you will find a vast resource to strengthen your resolve… through morality, integrity, and purpose. If you are struggling with these issues, the Dragon will restore them to you. Remember that the power of the spiritual world can never be broken, and true strength is found within – not in the outside world. Never mistake a gentle man for a weak one.

Watch for a signal – the Dragon always makes the next step clear, and it gives  you the power to take it.”*

~ Colette Baron-Reid

Just as you need it most, dragon swoops down to your rescue. When you work with Dragon energy, calling it in to galvanize you with power and strength, your very own Dragon guide will be assigned to work with you. This Dragon will be there for you whenever you call, whenever you need extra help, courage or guidance. All you have to do is ask, and align yourself with it’s powerful energies.

If you are not sure where your dragon is, what it’s name is or how to contact it, ask for a clear sign. Even the fact that you are reading this now, is a clear sign that your dragon wishes to work with you now!

Often when we have difficult decisions to make, we feel very alone and isolated. Fear separates us from those who may not understand our predicament, or we may hide our true feelings to avoid judgement or criticism. We decide we must go it alone, and hide our true feelings deep inside, often left feeling abandoned and vulnerable. Dragon is here to help.

As much as you may have been struggling lately, as much as you may be battling the fear, Dragon will protect you. This protection is all-encompassing: physical, mental and spiritual. Know that as you move forward, Dragon’s firey breath will burn away any obstacles standing in your way. He, or She, will blaze the trail before you, throwing open doors, expanding possibilities and setting the world alight. She is a deep ally, a true friend and a force to be reckoned with…

As are you.

You are a mirror of her strength and passion. Can you see it?

You have the power to burn through old fears, burn old belief systems.

You have what it takes to be powerful, courageous and strong.

And now you see….

You are one with the Dragon.

You always have been.

Always will be.

Namaste

Our Lady Of Creative Choice

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Creative Choice, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our Lady Of Creative Choice: “You have my power within you and you are free beyond wildest imagination. Do you know that you are a slave to no thing and to no one? You are a divine being. With the power of creative choice, you can create worlds, my beloved. Even the smallest choice contains great creative power. Do not cast your power aside, my child. Choose to trust me, to live with an open, vulnerable heart, and to let my grace flood through you in rapturous waves of light. Choose wisely, creatively and well. Yet do not fear your power, for the best choice you can make is to learn from all your experiences. I will guide you to use your power to create healing difference in your life now. You have at your disposal the power of Heaven. I will guide you to use it well.

One small stone tossed into a lake can create seemingly endless ripples. So too do our choices create an impact far greater than we might at first expect. Our Lady Of Creative Choice has come to you with a message. No matter what situation is happening in your life, no matter how powerless you may feel to change it or control it, you have so much power here. If you knew how much power you had, you would laugh with relief, and wonder, and reverent joy! You would realize that you don’t have to control anything or anyone in order to feel empowered. Your power doesn’t come from controlling outcomes; it flows from your endless capacity to make choices.

Our Lady Of Creative Choice helps us when we know that the way we have been choosing to be, perhaps feeling reactive or out of control, might not be serving us anymore. Perhaps we have not felt much choice in the past. Perhaps we might have got caught up in feeling frustrated with another, or out of control in certain situations, and all we felt we could do was react. Or perhaps we have become so caught up in just trying to get things done, or work things out, that we forgot that we get to have a say in our lives.

This oracle comes to you as a reminder. You have the power of heaven within you. You don’t need to control life, beloved, but you can choose whether you dance with life responsively, or resist its flow and feel pushed around by it instead. Through paying attention to what is happening for you in the moment – whether that be feelings of happiness or sadness, a feeling of letting go, or moving on, or staying put and learning something – you can then make a choice about how you wish to respond. Your responses to your life circumstances are your choices to make, and a source of great power within.”*

– by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our lives are filled with moments of choice, yet we don’t see it as so because we spend so much of it on automatic pilot, plodding through routine, doing things we wish we weren’t doing and repeating the same thought patterns as we do it. Us humans are creatures of habit and when we speak of awareness, enlightenment or higher consciousness, it is actually profoundly simple. In order to reach awareness, become enlightened or expand your consciousness, you just need to WAKE UP and be here now. So easy! Right?

We can make the choice to be mindful of our thoughts. We can choose to process our emotions, even if they are uncomfortable. We can choose who to fill our time with; and make some vitally important time to ourselves. We can decide to take good care of ourselves, to love and accept ourselves. We can choose happiness and peace in the fact of adversity.

Or we can keep sleepwalking and feeling like we are too small to make a difference.

It is your choice!

And mine too.

Namaste

Coming Into Power

Coming Into Power, from the Gateway Oracle Card deck, by Denise Linn

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Coming Into Power, from the Gateway Oracle Card deck, by Denise Linn

Coming Into Power: “I step into my power boldly and confidently”

Card Meaning: “You have been gathering your inner forces and are coming into your own strength. Assume your power. Accept the vibrant truth that all you need is already within  you. It is safe to own your deepest inner gifts.

The Universe Wants You To Know: “If you have given away your authority to something or someone else, now is your chance to reclaim it. Pulling this card indicates that it is time to stand in your own light. If you are holding on to any beliefs that you will not be liked or will be rejected if you step into your potential, let them go! The more you shine in your own radiance, the more others can see the glow of their own capability. Your strength can heal others and bring light into the hearts of many.”

Questions To Ask Yourself: “What has stopped me from expanding my potential in the past? How can I come into my power more fully? In what ways can I support and help others with my own strength?”*

~ By Denise Linn

Whatever has held you back in the past is about to be blown wide apart. It may be your perception of yourself, your value or your capabilities. It may be a situation, person or circumstance. It could be something that used to feel like Mt Everest and now all of a sudden feels like less than a speed bump. Only you know what’s been holding you back, and it has a lot to do with perception, past experience, worry, anxiety, blame, guilt and shame… all that low density sticky stuff that will literally melt away. With grace and ease. Like it never existed. You may even find yourself laughing at your past self, unable to believe that this held you hostage for as long as it did.

Ah, the lightness and freedom when the constraints come off. When you finally realize just how powerful you are and step into it wholeheartedly. What a wonderful and profound moment when you realize that anything you set your mind to is possible. The conviction that you can co-create exactly what you want in hand with the Universe. That it is so much easier than you previously thought. That it all starts now. That everything you have been through to date was just part of your journey and got you here, to exactly where you need to be in order to move forward.

Let go of the past and step fearlessly into the future. Recreate yourself by being true to your Soul, listening to your heart, and finding your voice. You have everything you need in order to succeed, all you need to do is come into your power. Know that you are worthy, you are capable, you are powerful and you are free.

Go ahead and say it!

I AM Worthy

I AM Capable

I AM Powerful

I AM Free

I AM

Namaste

The Akashic Field

Published February 15, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Akashic Field, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, Artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Akashic Field, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, Artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani

The Akashic Field: “Like the The Akashic Field, the aurora borealis flows with energy and brilliance as charged particles from the sun interact with atoms in the earth’s atmosphere. The 93 million miles from the sun to the earth is nothing compared to the limitless consciousness of the Akashic Field. All information, power, energy, and experience vibrate within this realm of unending truth and possibility – and every bit of it can be yours.

Receiving this card tells you that amazing opportunities abound at this time. You can increase and accelerate the experience by opening the doors to the Akashic Records. Your life-force energy resonates with Universal synchronicity now, so you can explore the Records and receive exactly the information that you need and the energy that can help. Engage in this pursuit with a conscious focus. Write your intentions and ask for inspiration. Meditate on the Akshic Field and visualize your goals. The Universe is ready and willing to align with your heartfelt desires, and now is the time to make them happen.”

As Challenger: “The Akshic Field as challenger indicates a time of fragmentation and agitated energy within or around you. You may be going through some sort of crisis, or you may be on the receiving end of some grief or hostility, which is really throwing you for a loop! Your worry and panic is splitting your energy and causing a frantic vibration.

You need to know that the Universal consciousness of creation is still available to you. Eternal inspiration is always vibrating around you, but until you calm down and rein in the emotional intensity, you will be like a radio station tuned to the wrong frequency and picking up only static.

The Field – and the world – is filled with potential solutions to the very problems that are making you upset. So stop, take a step back, and try to get a new perspective on things. It may be advisable to look into past-life influences, for they vibrate in the Akashic Field as well.”

Akashic Force: “Close your eyes and imagine yourself entering the boundless and brilliant Akashic Field. It’s almost as if you are stepping upon the Milky Way, and all its stars roll out before you, offering their light and power. Feel this profound force igniting your dreams and lighting your way.””*

~ Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

Today is the new moon, the darkest night of the month. A night of the brightest stars if the sky is clear. The day of planting seeds, of setting intentions and of acknowledging the magic and mystery at work. February is a month of no full moons, and this new moon falls right in the middle of the month. There are powerful energies at work here, use them wisely.

Again I ask, what do you wish to create? Now is the time to create it! A new moon ritual is in order. It is really important to get clear on what it is that you are desiring to manifest now. What inspires you? Why do you dream the dreams you dream? How would it feel to live the life you wish to create? Focus on these feelings now. Write them down. Make an altar. Light a candle. Meditate. Contemplate. Breathe deeply and Create.

Make a vision board, a collage or paint a picture of what you would like. Write about it in bright detail. Make a wish and know that it will be fulfilled. See yourself walking through the Akashic Field, dancing through the stars and pulling the magic down from the unmanifest realm to the physical plane through the portal of energy that is today. Know that this is the point of creation and the manifestation is to come. Expedite the process by having faith, surrendering to the process and knowing that what is yours will come to you.

And so it is

Namaste

Ace Of Wands ~ Initiation

Published January 2, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ace Of Wands ~ Initiation, from The Enchanted Oracle, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ace Of Wands ~ Initiation, from The Enchanted Oracle, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Ace Of Wands ~ Initiation

The Dream: “The power of pure energy streaks in vivid colors behind a burning torch. Blue lightning bolts erupt to awaken one to the self’s own reality and vitality. Everything is as spontaneous as a spark igniting a blazing fire. Anything negative, anything that holds one back, can be burned away leaving a new beginning – our personal springtime. The Phoenix rises from the ashes. The flowers, above the stars at the base of the card, show this new growth with their plumes of smoke. The stars add the inspiration of the universe, where new worlds burst into being and comets race in blazing glory. This basic, unfettered impulse of life – the desire to experience the warmth of existence, consciousness, sexuality, enlightenment, and bliss – is like a club to break down the cold wall of darkness and non-being. Behind the wand is a shape resembling a club, the unifying background on all cards of The Enchanted Tarot’s suit of Wands.”

The Awakening: “In this moment, you feel alive, creative, and passionate. If you do not accept this instant when it arrives, it may be lost. Use your instincts in this time of impulse and enthusiasm. It is time to initiate new beginnings. Do not question your power to do so.”

The Enchantment: “Gather yellow and orange coloured flowers. Place them in a shallow clay bowl and set the bowl in a sunny location. When the flowers have dried, powder them with a pestle. Add a few drops of scented oil and burn the crushed flowers as an offering before one yellow candle. Repeat: “Power and passion are inspired. Fear and darkness are retired.”

Quick Read

Card Message: “You need to be instinctive, creative, and passionate. You are being initiated. Do not second guess yourself. Follow your first impressions. Make the first move. Try to see through all illusions. You may experience a breakthrough.”

Outcome: “You will be involved in the initiation of a new and exciting project. Be passionate, spontaneous, and creative. Make the first move. Go by first impressions. This is a time of new beginnings, initiations, and breakthroughs.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Harness the energy of the full moon today. The full moon in combination with the brand new energy of the year. And to make it even more magical, this is the first of two full moons this month. January is starting off with a powerful punch of positive energy, what we need most right now to push ahead with our plans of passion and creativity.

Yellow and orange flowers represent the Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras, where our confidence, creativity, manifestation and self expression are most powerfully held. By working to activate these chakras we help to unleash the strength we need to bring into being our reality in the way that we have previously only dared dream. It is time to actualize our vision, our intention. It is time to make lasting change and step into the tranformation we have been craving.

This is a window of opportunity and must be treated as such. Just as the moon is only truly full for the night, the window will close again too. Refuse to stay in the rut that makes you miserable. Change what needs changing and do it now. Trust that this is the push that you need in the direction that your heart has been pulling you but you have been too fearful to go. Take the plunge, body, mind and spirit.

Don’t hold back now.

Namaste

Queen Of Stones ~ Bear

Published November 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Queen Of Stones ~ Bear, from The Wild Wood Tarot Card deck, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Queen Of Stones ~ Bear, from The Wild Wood Tarot Card deck, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, artwork by Will Worthington

Queen Of Stones ~ Bear
Position on the Wheel: “Approaching Midwinter”

Meaning Of The Card: “The ancient ancestor of the modern bear, the cave bear hibernated in caves during the cold northern winter. Neanderthals buried their skulls here and even shared their caves during some periods. Often linked to Arthurian legend, the Bear is a symbol of the power and protection of the land.
 
Reading Points: “Richness and plenty surround you. Your bounty and welcoming nature make you popular with all. Many depend on you, and your natural sensuality makes you powerfully attractive to others. Pragmatism and generosity open doorways at every point.”

As A Person In Your Life: “This is a practical and welcoming person. She or he delights in prosperity and luxury, though she can also have a natural and wholesome simplicity. As a friend, she is loyal, keeping faith with you and being frank about issues needing improvement. She may be a treasurer or a curator of tradition, but she can also be a hoarder or a squanderer, as well as a demanding or timid individual.”

As An Aspect Or Process: “Learning to manage things wisely, preserve things of value, make things better, provide amenities. Be careful of wasting resources.”

As An Event or Happening: “If you practice a craft or design, be expansive and liberal. A group or community. Putting the family first. Right or wrong. Refusing to nurture.”

Questions: “How can you best promote well-being here? Where can you make space to care for yourself or others? What needs to be preserved?”

Tracks and Pathways: “Power and generosity. Punctiliousness. A demanding individual. Confidence. Frankness. Assurance. Prosperity.”*

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

This is a message of power, strength, and using your inner resources to your highest advantage in the most honourable way. It is a card of fearlessness, confidence and self-worth. It is no coincidence that the background is full of gold and orange. Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras:  self-belief, creativity, innate skills and talents are all at play here. Also the dawn, new beginnings, opportunities and fresh starts. Be the confident mama bear. Know your worth and refuse to back down. Be empowered. Believe in yourself. And only good will come of it.

It is important that as you stand in your power, you hold the intention that your actions and words be for the absolute highest integrity. This is not about power trips or being more powerful than another. If you are more powerful than another, you will be the mama bear and protect and nurture them as needed, then set them free to fend for themselves with the knowledge you have shared. You are an inspiration, a mentor and a positive example to those around you. Share what you have and know that the Universe will send more.

You are magnetic now, and will attract the right people and opportunities to you as you set your intention to be for the Highest Good. Others will be drawn to you for your authenticity, your abilities and your inner strength. There is sensuality at play here too. You are most attractive when you are just being you. Know this and embody it fully. Release the need to be anything other than exactly who you are.

Namaste

The Standing Stone

Published October 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Standing Stone, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Standing Stone, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Standing Stone: “Standing stones are symbols of authority, boundary markers, and monuments. As objects of power and balance, unyielding and strong, blending earth and spirit energies, they once formed a meeting place where people in a community could decide issues and settle individual disputes before the gods. In this circle of smaller stones, smaller stones, a community council could sit in arbitration or discern justice, hearing evidence and rendering a decision. The tradition of engraving stone obelisks and tablets with the laws of a society relates to the power of the megalith and here symbolizes concepts of Craft practices. The stone has been carved with the triquetra symbol of the Triple Goddess, the scales upon which the facts of a matter can be weighed for a balanced and impartial decision, the Craft ethic of ‘harm none’ for fairness and compassion, and the labyrinth signifying the path one must follow to reach the heart of the matter and find the truth. The path leading to this circle of stones passes through the dark forest, and yet the light of truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth of the matter will be revealed.

Objectivity is emphasized when this card appears in a reading. The Standing Stone shows that one has gathered information and fairly evaluated a matter, and may therefore trust the decision reached. When paired with the King of Swords, this card indicates a legal matter or court decision. The level of success in this issue may be revealed by the surrounding cards.

The shadowy forest shows that nature also has a hand in justice, for while there is law, there is also the law of returns, karma, and retribution achieved by the actions of others who carry out the decision and return the scales to balance. The small grassy clearing is sprinkled with daisies, for truth, authority, harmony, and communication. While a spider, a symbol of power, wisdom, and balance, weaves a web between two of the stone circle stones.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Objectivity, Impartiality, Trust Your Own Decision, Fairness, Balance, Truth, Virtue, Honor, Law, Prevail In A Legal Matter, Equilibrium, An Agent Working On Your Behalf, Advice, Consideration, Conscience, Impartiality, Equity, Reward, Verdict, Retribution For The Aggrieved, Harmony, Natural Law.”

As Challenger: “Misrepresentation, Bias, Intolerance, Legal Action Delayed, Complications, Gossip, False Accusation, Tedious Bureaucracy, Cloudy Perception.”

Prompt Words: “Objectivity, Fairness, Trust Your Own Decisions.”*

~ By Ann Moura

This is a message of facts and of the laws of Nature. There is no getting caught up in emotion here, of succumbing to the victim mentality or of drowning in our sorrows. There is also no room for falsity, bravado or deception. This is a message of truth.

Justice will be served. The equation is karmic, mathematical. The jury cannot be swayed with tears or false promises.

Boundaries are in place. Intimidation is not possible. Truth is critical, vital.

Make your decisions based on the Highest Good and they simply cannot go wrong. Create from a heart centered place, but not emotional. There is no need for retribution, only for fairness and equality here.

The only way out of a current dilemma is through the truth. The mind plays tricks but the heart will lead you with honour.

Namaste
