Daily Angel Oracle Card: Shark, from the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides, by Stephen D Farmer

Shark: “Trust your instincts to discern the truth of the situation”

“Your instinctual self is that aspect of you that sends signals to your brain directly from your body. It is what is responsible for your survival – particularly when you are in a life threatening situation and must avoid danger by fighting, fleeing, or remaining still and quiet. Your instinct dictates which choice most likely ensures your perpetuation. It is much more primal than intellect, and it is what connects humans with other animals.

The trust for your instinctual signals can be modified and distorted by conditioning, especially childhood conditioning. When you are repeatedly told to distrust what your body is telling you or you have faced life threatening situations, with no escape, this exquisite survival mechanism becomes clouded at the least and completely suppressed at the extreme. It is replaced by either a generalized fear and agitation that gets projected onto relatively benign situations, or else a psychic numbness that anesthetizes the senses and severely limits your body’s ability to process environmental cues for danger. This sensory numbness also limits your ability to fully experience pleasure.

Take time to tune in to your gut feelings, using slow, deep breathing as an access code. Listen with all your senses to discern what your body is telling you, and use your intellect to interpret whether it is a conditioned reaction or an instinctual response. With practice, you will refine your perceptual capabilities so that you can completely trust what you feel.

Associations For This Card: Confidence; Secrets; Protection; Respect; Survival; Authority; Focus; Action; Unpredictability; Solitude; Endurance; Assertiveness; Divinity.”*

~ Stephen D Farmer

Every limitation that we encounter can be traced back to our perception of ourselves. We set our own limitations. Period. In setting them, we have taken into account all the information we have gathered not just over this lifetime, but over our many lifetimes. Some of this information may be perceived as negative. Some of it may just have come from little snippets of things that people have said to us long ago; things that they may or may not even remember saying; things that we have held on to for our whole lives. Stories that we have created to describe ourselves and what is possible. Everyone has a story.

These things need not affect us any more, we must let them all go and start fresh.

If we do not let the past hurts go, we use them as shields to protect us from our present experience. We assume when offered a new opportunity that things may turn out the same as they did in the past. We give away our power as we don’t trust ourselves to make healthy decisions. We fight anxiety and experience fear when we go against the fear and doubt experienced by our bodies. We look through a tainted lens, projecting what we think could happen and not allowing the situation to fully unfold.

This is not about ignoring intuition, it is about trusting it in the moment. It is about tuning in instead of over thinking and over analyzing. It is about having faith in something new.

We must believe in ourselves; strengthen the connection to our intuition. We must take back our power and trust in our instincts. They will never let us down if we truly listen. They will always guide us on our highest path.

All we need to do is listen.

Namaste

Red Jasper

Published April 7, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Red Jasper, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Red Jasper, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Red Jasper: “Healthy Boundaries”

Crystal Colour: “Red”
Related Chakras: “Base”

Crystal Medicine: “Red Jasper is an ancient stone utilized in ceremonies and rituals for protection, purification, and to facilitate a deeper connection to the Earth. When you embark on a journey to connect with this sacred stone, you will start to awaken to the wisdom and knowledge of healthy boundaries, as this is the crystal’s hidden medicine. Red Jasper invites you to connect deeply to the Earth as you open your heart to receive the love of Mother Nature. Breathe this healing energy of Red Jasper into your heart as you start to feel strong, grounded, and more balanced within. It is now time for you to awaken your inner strength as you create loving healthy boundaries in your life.”

Crystal Meaning: “Sacred stone used in ceremonies for protection. Draws Mother Earth’s healing energy up into the body. Assists in setting healthy boundaries. Assists in overcoming deep-seated fear of abandonment.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this powerful card into your life today to remind you of the importance of healthy boundaries. Creating and understanding the meaning of healthy boundaries for most people can sometimes be overwhelming. When you start to create healthy boundaries, you can sometimes get confused and think you are being selfish or too hard on yourself and others. This is a perfectly normal part of the process of understanding and creating healthy boundaries, so be patient and gentle with yourself and know this process is different for everyone. You may have pulled this card today because someone in your life may be taking too much from you or you are giving too much. There requires a balance in giving and receiving – you can disempower others and yourself if this sharing comes from an unhealthy intention. The devas are here offering you wisdom and healing as you master the process of setting healthy boundaries. You are a generous, loving soul who provides healing and support to many people and the devas urge you to learn to honor your own needs first. Start to know and be aware of your own and others’ boundaries, remembering it is your responsibility to take care of your own needs. The action of creating healthy boundaries can bring out a deep healing of self on many levels. It brings the energy and awareness back to the heart and allows you to come from a place of love and clarity and encourages loving, nurturing and fulfilling relationships to blossom in your life based on mutual love, respect, and healthy boundaries.”*

~By Rachelle Charman

It’s a very good practice to establish boundaries in a relationship right at the beginning. But this is also when we are least likely to establish them, particularly if we tend to be people pleasers or don’t like to appear selfish or stern. However, if these boundaries are not set, then the grey areas can be what comes back to haunt you. When you appear to have no boundaries, or very shallow ones, then you appear to be more desperate to please, which can affect the level of respect someone else feels for you. And much of this is on an energetic level, and may even feel ok… until those non existent boundaries are pushed beyond your comfort zone.

We teach people how to treat us by putting boundaries into effect… or not. We show them where our moral lines are, and where not to cross them. Sometimes we loosen the boundaries when we think that someone is “THE ONE” and we don’t realize that is when we may need them most. It’s a difficult lesson to learn, as once the boundaries are not firmly in place, it is hard to enforce them later.

Somewhere in your life your boundaries are being tested. Where once you let your guard completely down, you are now feeling compromised. It’s not a nice feeling. What to do now? How to put boundaries in place after toes have been stepped on? There is no way to quietly put them in place, you must find your voice and do it.

Red Jasper will help you put boundaries where they are most needed, and teach you when to put them in place in the future. You will learn that it is best to put them down at the start of a friendship or relationship, whether it is between a family member, acquaintance, love interest or co-worker. You must aim for the boundaries to be respectful for both parties, and take your time, energy and efforts into account. Invite a clear and firm communication. Be brave and courageous when setting our your ground rules.

And see that instead of being selfish, you are actually establishing your sovereignty and personal space. This is something to be proud of.

Queen Of Pentacles

Queen Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Queen Of Pentacles: “The Queen Of Pentacles yearns to nurture and care for others. She is brimming with generosity and possesses a warmth of spirit that glows from her eyes. The fan of branches arrayed around her figure are reminiscent of the ten armed Hindu Goddess Durga, embodiment of feminine creative energy. She is dedication, a protector, and one who is reliable and trustworthy. She is secure in her material possessions and her position in life.

The Queen Of Pentacles will lend her support to any who ask. She has strength that she draws from the very oak tree that she is a part of (or that is a part of her). She is willing to share the strength that is drawn down from the sustaining golden power of life and warmth of the sun itself into her branches, and transmuted into purest energy.

‘Carry this as a token and a reminder that I am always here,’ she says, taking a leaf from the boughs that whisper a singing susurrus from around her. They sigh in a hundred voices, an eerie harmony of the secrets that they hold for her.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

There is so much power in the symbolism here. The sun, moon and earth. The power of the mighty oak in the form of the Divine Feminine, mother Earth herself. She is rooted deeply into the ground yet reaches up high into the cosmos, drawing down the power to assist those who are in need of her magic. She is greens and yellows, representing the heart, healing and also confidence, courage and self-worth. She reaches towards us with the oak leaf, significant of her ability to help us if we step into her realm.

Get outside. Even if it is cold; bundle up. Your body needs it, craves it. This is elemental energy and it can only be felt when in the elements. Maybe it is winter where you are, there is snow on the ground here as I type this. Maybe your winter is still sunshine and warm temperatures, lucky you if it is! Whatever the elements have to offer you, take it. There is deep and powerful magic within it that can only be accessed through our physical senses.

We must be in the fresh air to breath it into our lungs. We must be in the wind for it to sweep through our hair. We must stand under the rain to feel it cleanse and clear us. We must reach out and touch the bark of a tree to truly connect with its energies. Go where it resonates to you personally. Where your soul sings. Maybe that is in the forest, amongst the tallest trees. Or maybe it is at the beach, the wind whipping your hair about your face. Maybe there is a park or a lake or a stream you like to visit. Or maybe your own back yard holds as much magic and mystery as you need.

Take a little offering with you, maybe a small tumbled stone. Plant it somewhere special and make a wish, asking for assistance in creating a particular dream, or solving a present issue in your life. Take some time to connect with the natural world around you, appreciating it. Sending gratitude and love.

Then leave only your energy imprint and know that assistance is on its way to you now. A little gift from the Queen of Pentacles.

Star Mother Arrakis

Star Mother Arrakis, from the RUMI Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Star Mother Arrakis, from the RUMI Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Star Mother Arrakis:

“Be the king who has made his own kingdom
Be the moon that has made her own summit.
How much longer
will you coo coo like a pigeon?

Empty your head of all mortal lusts,
and become life without breath.
You will not call out for God anymore,
for you have become immersed in God.”

~ RUMI

“Your star mother, Arrakis, dances with your soul on the celestial inner planes. She dances in the embrace of Father Sky, shining white and pale, deep in devotion to the light behind all that is. Arrakis, Dancing Star of the Heavens, incites our souls to feel the rhythm of life and surrender to it in flow, in grace, stumbling and in play. Like a child who thinks not of the ‘right steps’ but just moves with music and with joy, she reminds you to dance freely and from your heart. She reminds you that your soul is constantly dancing with the Divine. What better way to connect with the joy and beauty of your soul than to mimic its movements? So dance, beloved. Let your being dance. Oh Arrakis! Your bright beauty penetrates even the darkest of minds to remember, remember, remember.

She calls out; her voice is music to our hearts. ‘You are a child of heaven. You are born of such regal stuff, dear dancing child of the stars. When you suffer, I send you my comfort as stars falling from the sky. When you triumph, my dance becomes wild, and light erupts from my heart in all directions. The light becomes music, stirring within you with an urge – almost inexplicable and yet so very deep and real – to make music, to create art, to dance, to play, to be at one with the joyful creative energy that dwells within you, beloved.’

Star child, earth angel, divine creature – your Star Mother keeps an eye on all the wild games happening in the sacred playground of the earth. She will care for you, righteous and true, shining divine justice and protection. No bully shall prevail over you. No bully from within you shall prevail either! No lies, deceit or injustice shall temper your wild truths. Be demanding in claiming her love for you. Learn how to love yourself as she loves you – with wild, unconditional, passionate regard! Be like the child wailing for its mother, ‘Ma! Ma! Ma! Come close!’

Then she descends! Like a torrential downpour of devotional light, a tsunami of affection is unleashed. A rampaging cosmic tigress hurtles towards you, her claws gripping the fabric of the skies as she rushes to protect her beloved cub. She will fight for you against the forces that would dull you and dumb you down, obscure your brilliance and stultify your free form dance into strict, choreographed movements. She will pour her luminous essence into every crevice of your demanding soul. Nothing can resist her light. All shall be washed and revived in the outpouring of her luminous love. Then, sated and content, you are the child so secure in the love of the mother, you trust in life implicitly and in what is brought to your door. You do not succumb to untruths. You do not resist because you are safe, held in the love of the mother. You have no need to resist. What is there to resist? Nothing! There is only the loving truth in your world and all is at peace in your heart.

And should there be cause to stand up and fight – for love, for freedom, for light, for her truths of unconditional life, respected and honoured – well, you shall particularly equipped for success. When there is that war to fight, you shall be the warrior who defends the motherland, absolute in your devotion to her ways and empowered through her vast, indefatigable, triumphant power.

And shall you bludgeon your way with brute force and fear? Of course not.

So here is your guidance. Lay down your old weapons for new technology awaits you! It is the most magnificent of forces, that of divine alignment, of surrender to the Star Mother and her way of luminous potency. From her great vantage point, the vastest problems of our earthly mindsets are merely in need of a quick whipping by the tail of a comet, and this she easily achieves by flicking a strand of her hair or poking out her tongue. In the hands of a greater being, even your deepest trials will succumb to divine victory. Your ability to take the journey will be strengthened, and your success only a matter of the passing of time. Can you give yourself this gift, this blessing of the love, power and protection of your star heritage? We all descend from the stars, but some of us are asked to remember to acknowledge the divine parentage from which we come, and to allow the innate divine dignity within to restore us to faith in the path here on earth.

No matter how dark life on earth may seem at times, when we remember our holy heritage we can also realize,’Ah yes, I am blessed, held as one with the mother who shall not be deterred from great holy purpose. I shall prevail! I forgot that and feared, but now I remember and am determined once more. ‘Then you shall feel joy and be inclined to dance, to sing, to make your art, and to live fearlessly once again.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Open your hands up above your head and say: “Through unconditional love and divine mercy, through the blessings of the ancient master and sages, including Brother Rumi, who loves without condition, I call upon the blessings of the stars, the remembrance of my divine heritage and the gift of spiritual success. I call upon the assurance of my soul’s triumph and the luminous embrace of the Holy Mother. I honour my soul’s need for art and for expression, and for creativity now, from a pure and loving place within me. So be it!”
You have finished your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

There is no living a full life without dedication to complete authenticity. If we are still living in illusion, if we are still living a lie, then we will pay the price by not getting to live life fully. We will always feel stagnant. Something will always be missing. There will always be an excruciating longing, a pulling, a whispering of the Soul.

If we live behind our masks in fear, then fear we will have. If we are not standing in our power, then we will feel powerless. If we keep using bandaids to cover up the wounds instead of delving deeply into the abyss to heal, then we will keep living the same patterns over and over again. Maybe in this lifetime; maybe over many lifetimes.

This is an invitation to step into our full authentic selves. Unapologetically be who we are. Step boldly onto our life path. Despite the fear of failure or judgment or rejection. Despite what others may or may not think.

Having absolute faith in the process, in the support and connection to the Universe. Knowing that we came here to do just this. Remembering. Waking up and taking full responsibility. Knowing that we are always guided, always loved. Knowing that we are absolutely celebrated for who we are, and how we fit into the collective.

Step out of the box you have been stuck in for far too long. And embrace all that life has to offer you. Find joy in creating something new.

Namaste

Shekinah ~ Unity

Published December 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Shekinah ~ Unity, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Shekinah ~ Unity, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Shekinah ~ Unity:

“For the splendor of the Shekinah traversed the world from one end to another with a radiance greater than that of the globe of the sun.
And everyone who made use of the splendor… on him flies and no gnats did rest.
Neither was he ill nor suffered he any pain.
No demons got power over him, neither were they able to injure him.”

~ The Book Of Enoch, Chapter 54

“The Shekinah has been referred to as the divine manifestation of God’s presence, God’s active light, and a mighty cleansing light that the Angels enter before prayer. As the bride of the Lord, she is the manifestation of God in humans. She redeems us from all evil and liberates us. In the Talmud, when God drove Adam from the Garden of Eden, the Shekinah remained under the Tree of Life as a tremendous source of healing and protection. In the Torah, the Shekinah was sent into exile along with Adam. ‘To lead the Shekinah back to God and to unite her with Him is the trues purpose of the Torah.’ The essence of our work is to reunite both out Earthly self and Eternal Self with God.

The first thing to recognize is that you are a unique manifestation of an important aspect of of the Divine. Most of us have forgotten this. Your life task is to transform your body temple into a pure dwelling place of the Eternal. God is seeking direct communication with you and longs for your return. Put aside judgments and unworthiness and open your heart. Often, you do not realize it, but Spirit is as close as your breath; you limit your experience of God’s presence through your concepts. When you attain the final goal of union or fusion, you are always aware of God’s presence in all forms. God is a living, expanding and evolving being who desires your love, just as you long for God’s love.

The Eternal Self is your individualized fragment of God. It receives a stream of electronic light substance or liquid white fire which enters the physical body through the pineal gland and fills up the nerve channels. This light flows through us causing the heart to beat and energizing the brain allowing us to function. As long as there is peace, love and a strong connection with God, youth and beauty result. When undesirable thoughts control the mind, they are reflected in the form of illness and aging. This does not mean that you should repress feelings and memories; rather the opposite. Be willing to root out the negativity within and it will be replaced by a divinely tranquil spirit.

Be ever alert to receive wisdom and energy from your Eternal Self. Meditate upon and commune with this fragment of God within. Your Eternal Self is the Shekinah and provides the power which the outer self uses to hold the connection with its divine source. The outer self and the Eternal Self are in reality united. The greatest illusion is that we are separate from God. Believing this, we think we are the doer, or fall victim to the circumstances of life.

The Eternal Self is not interested in smoothing our Earthly problems, but presents difficult and painful opportunities to stimulate the process of cleansing and harmonizing. God has given us free choice to express either limitations or divinity. The unquenchable yearning and incessant longing to be with God emanates from the Eternal Self. If you haven’t experienced this yet, you will. This longing leads you step by step through the process of freeing yourself from illusions. This is done by making you recognize that you feel desperately alone and abandoned. These feelings are the greatest gift from God who is just behind them, waiting for you to break through with your desire! When you are nearly overcome, God comes to you on the energy created by the intensity of your longing.

Call on Shekinah often to purify you with God’s active Light, to fill you with the presence of your Eternal Self, to protect and heal you, to take you Home!”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

Unity. The bringing together of the parts. Forming of the whole. Integration. Unification. Body, mind and spirit. Individually. Collectively. With Unity, what could we accomplish? How close or how far away from Unity are we, actually.

The answer lies within.

Are we still buying what they are selling us? Do we still believe that we are powerless?

Limitations? Or Divinity?

Your choice.

What can we accomplish on an individual basis? How can we prove our strength in numbers. A shift is happening, can you feel it? The Divine Feminine is Rising… she is asking the Divine Masculine to meet her. He’s not quite there yet. All that power is hard to let go of for the ego, who doesn’t realize that the power on offer is profoundly deeper. We are reaching the tipping point. The point where we decide we are NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.

We are no longer going to give away our power.

We are no longer going to compromise our morals, our standards, ourselves.

We are going to stand up for what we believe in.

Individually and collectively.

And make a difference.

What else is possible?

Unity

Dagaz

Published November 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dagaz, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dagaz, from the Viking Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Dagaz: “Know that you are protected. Only positive energy flows your way. Expressing daily gratitude will create profound change. Have hope! Happiness is within your grasp – the time for sorrow is over. Grief is necessary, but soon it will diminish. Seek balance in all things.”

“The darkness is complete,
Until it is not.
The black is no longer black,
But blue, and then
Purple, then streaked
With pink,
Orange, yellow, Gold.
Warmth, hope,
Happiness.
All is changed.
I am Dagaz.”

“Dagaz, (pronounced, ‘daa-gahz’) is a rune in the Elder Futark that says good things have arrived or are coming soon. It is the rune of the miracle of the dawn, the coming of the day, the first rays of sunlight after a frightening storm. It is the awakening of hope when it seemed that hope was gone. It is the first gentle happiness after a period of grieving, the understanding that we can choose pleasure after a period of sacrifice. It is the relief after much hard work.

Dagaz is a protective force too. It enhances happiness by warding off anything that may challenge that happy state. It is useful in dispelling depression, inducing hope and bringing forth a balanced mind and body. Dagaz was painted in yellow on the doorways of halls, where happy events were held, ensuring not only that good times would be had, but that the people within would be protected from harm wile enjoying themselves.”

As Challenger: “Insomnia or restless sleep. Depression. Hopelessness and victim mentality. Stuck in the old ways of thinking. Refusing to be grateful for simple things. Refusing to be happy because we fear something may go wrong.”

Element: “Fire”*

~By Stacey Demarco

Hmmm, I’m thinking I need this rune. I could paint it in yellow on my doorways. Yes, why not do that? I love the idea of a protective force, enhancing happiness and warding off what may challenge that happiness for me. I love the idea of awakening hope where once hope seemed beyond reach. I wan to choose pleasure after a period of stress, exhaustion and overwhelm. Bring it on.

It’s too easy to slide into victim mentality; to feel like life is happening ‘to’ us, that we have no say in it. To become unwilling participants in a game where the odds feel stacked against us. It’s easy to become a martyr, believing that we must sacrifice our dreams to create happiness for anyone and everyone in our lives despite ourselves.

We need to let that mentality go. And find a way to create something better. Stronger. More suited to the reality we desire to create.

What else is possible here?

There is no such thing as coincidence. Only synchronicity. There is no such thing as jinxing ourselves. It is safe to dream big and act on it. All those limiting belief systems just hold us back from what is ours, not the other way round. And yes, you deserve to be happy.

Expect a turn of events. Expect happiness. Intend it. Find it and hold onto it. Radiate it out into the world.

Namaste

Isis ~ Protection

Published October 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Isis ~ Protection: “You are loved and protected even through the most difficult of trials. This is a time for healing. You need mothering or to use your mothering energy. Magic is happening!”

“Isis is the daughter of the sky goddess, Nuit, and the earth god, Geb. As the wife of Osiris, she is one of the most enduring symbols of loving motherhood, dedicated wifehood, and feminine protective energy. Isis’s love and devotion to Osiris after his brother Set killed and dismembered him is a central story is the mythology of the ancient Egyptians.

The storm god, Set, became jealous of Osiris and killed him. In his rage, Set dismembered the body, hiding the pieces so that Osiris could not be resurrected. When Isis discovered that her husband had been murdered, her grief was immense – some say her tears triggered the Nile’s annual flood. Not satisfied that her great love would never attain eternal life, Isis traveled the earth looking for the pieces of Osiris. She found him piece by piece. Advised by the god of knowledge, Thoth, she cast a powerful spell, which bought her husband back to life long enough for her to conceive a son, Horus. Osiris retreated back into the underworld, where he ruled from then on.

As a result of her role assisting the newly formed Lord of the Dead, Isis became a protectress of the dead. Many sarcophagi featured her image with mighty outstretched wings extending her energy and protecting the body. As the mother of Horus, she is often depicted breastfeeding him or cradling him lovingly, again symbols of feminine protection and influence.

The cult of Isis spread all over Egypt and extended into Greece, Italy, and surrounding areas. Major temples were constructed in her honour on Philae and as far away as Delos in Greece. Priestesses of Isis were known for their haling skills.

Although the spread of Christianity halted worship of Isis, it is easy to see how she was appropriated by the Christian religion in the form of Mother Mary. The iconic poses of Mary, the mother of Christ, are incredibly similar to images of Isis and Horus.

When you are fearful or in need of protection, call upon this great goddess. Ask for her help when you feel the eyes of judgment on you, when you need some extra armor, or when you feel particularly vulnerable. Allow her wings to surround you and protect you. (*Please note: If you are feeling physically threatened in any way, it is important that you find someone you trust to help you. Living with the real threat of physical violence is unhealthy, and others can help you to put a stop to it.)”

Shadow Side: “Even though Isis used all her skills to find and revive Osiris, she could not keep him alive and with her forever, and he retreated and became the god of the underworld. Sometimes, no matter how much we may try to protect someone, things do not turn out as we wish. You may see a sibling exhibiting what you see as poor or destructive behaviour or a friend acting in wild ways that seem out of character and try to protect that person – only to have your opinion or help rejected. While we may mean well, and even be right, people need to learn life’s lessons on their own. It may well be a karmic situation that is resolving itself or a key life skill that someone is learning while we watch. (In the case of behaviour that is harmful to themselves or others, you should inform someone else you trust to help resolve the situation.)”

Symbols: “Ankh, outstretched wings, knot of Isis (tyet), throne hieroglyphic symbol, roses.”

Invocation: “When you need protection or feel someone in your life could use a little extra too, you can invoke Isis to help. You will need some rose petals, some rose incense on a charcoal, and a dark pink or gold candle.
Take a salt bath or shower to cleanse yourself. Relax. Light the candle and say:

Mother Isis, daughter of the infinite Nuit, daughter of the
earth-rich Geb,
Wife of Osiris, whom you healed and gave life to,
Stretch your wings around me!
I ask for your protection.”

Now light the rose incense. Allow the smoke to rise and say:

As you watch above all, as you nourish your children,
I humbly ask for your love and protection.

Now tell Isis what your needs are. Be truthful and feel all you need to feel.

Know that Isis is compassionate and powerful. Imagine her wrapping her wings around you, giving you love and energy. Say:

I am not afraid. You are with me, Goddess.

Stay in her loving embrace as long as you need to. Take your time.
When you are ready, or when Isis unfolds her wings, give her thanks. Know that she is watching over you and will respond.
Repeat this invocation when you need to.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Sometimes the world feels like a scary place. So much is going on, so much is beyond our control. We try to live our lives the best we can amongst the chaos. We send prayers, we send love. We try to be of service. We open our hearts and we put ourselves out there, and yet it can feel sometimes that we are so very vulnerable. That we are unprotected. That there is just so much to fear.

When we feel like this we sometimes just need an extra layer of protection. We need to know that we are safe, no matter what happens. In what can feel like perilous times, we want a powerful warrior on our side. Goddess Isis can help us with this, (as can Archangel Michael of course).

See the Goddess as she appears in the image above; totally fearless, always ready and willing to take on anything; particularly what scares you right now. Consider carrying or placing an Ankh beside your bed or under your pillow; one that you have drawn yourself is fine. You can also get an Ankh to wear as a symbol of protection and life.

Know that you are protected and that it is safe to get back out there and do what you have to do, the Goddess by your side. Know that you also have a spark of her divine warrior energy and that you can always summon this powerful energy to get you through challenging or difficult times.

Namaste
