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.”

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

Orbs Of Light

Published October 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Orbs Of Light, from the Lightworker Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orbs Of Light, from the Lightworker Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Orbs Of Light: “The spiritual worlds are delivering a message to you. You may have already heard it, through telepathic reception, and mistaken it for your own thought. Yet it is inspired by your higher guidance, those spiritual beings that love you without condition. It is an answer to a question and guidance to increase your happiness.”

“It is possible to pray without realizing it. The Universe is lovingly listening to every thought and feeling in your heart and mind. When you intentionally speak to the Universe and ask your higher guidance to help you with an issue, this is a powerful way to call the light into your life. It works. Often quite rapidly! However, sometimes we ask for help without being so aware of doing so. Worrying about an issue or pondering a question are ways this happens.

There are orbs of light around you. They are spiritual beings that love you. These orbs contain information and energies that help answer questions – and worries – through the intelligence and love of the higher spiritual worlds. That information might come through a song, a phrase, a feeling or a colour or symbol that unlocks awareness in the deeper recesses of your mind and body.

Orbs are always around us, but appear in more concentrated form – both in quantity and quality – in certain places and at certain times, including when your energy is in a particularly soft and receptive, high frequency state. Orbs naturally gravitate towards high energy. This does not mean you have to be on the go constantly. Higher energy can be created, when you are very still, by raising your frequency to a higher vibrational state. You can do this by regularly meditating on love and healing. You can place yourself in a state that is most attractive to orbs of light by relaxing, opening your heart and feeling good. You are also most likely to perceive them around you in this state, which can be a fun and beautiful experience. Orbs are often only seen in photographs, where they appear as soft balls of light. If they are enhanced and magnified, patterns, symbols and faces can sometimes be seen within them. This is part of the loving genius of the spiritual world – the way that light can reach the earth in form, helping to raise frequency from fear to love.

Being in nature and doing some invocations to unconditional love creates an energy that is very attractive to orbs. So is group work based in love, such as meditating together to clear a sacred space in nature, then dancing and praying together in that space with joyful devotion to love. This attracts high-level guidance because a group can be a container powerful enough to generate and hold the higher frequencies of love. This can also happen for individuals, but group energy can be a powerful and effective way to attract a great downpour of spiritual grace. Clearing the energy of your home and calling in higher guidance to bless you and your home each day, perhaps with the invocation below, will also create a space in which orbs of light can more easily visit you, bringing their uplifting energy and healing light.

To access the information of these orbs of light, to be open to seeing them more clearly, whether directly with your own energetic vision through clarivoyance, or through photographs or other means, you an use the invocation below.”

Invocation: “I call upon the unconditionally loving orbs of light. Please bring me information, healing energy and joy, as I open my heart to the loving presence of the higher spiritual worlds, here and now. I ask to see, feel and know the loving intelligence of the orbs of light in ways that are relaxing, encouraging, joyful and kind. I ask for the orbs of light to bring peace and blessing to this space, to consecrate it as sacred and to protect is so that only energies of light, love and higher consciousness may enter. May the unconditionally loving orbs of light bless all those who can benefit from their presence. Through divine love and my own free will, so be it.”*

Yesterday I suggested the use of Selenite grids to enhance the energies of the home or office space and today we are invited to connect with the Orbs Of Light. If you do choose to grid your space with Selenite, you will certainly experience an uplift in the energy of the space. This is the ideal environment to experiment with connecting with Beings of Light from other dimensions, such as the Orbs of light.

The natural world is probably the best place to experience these Beings. Children and animals are generally the first to spot them, particularly babies or young toddlers. This is because they are completely open in this stage of their lives, having no limitations yet placed on their imaginations by being told what is “real and possible” and what simply is not acceptable. For adults it can be challenging to overcome this programming without feeling that we are going crazy or feeling out of control. We block ourselves and close our minds tight by worrying what others may think of us or believing that we are inviting in energy that we are not comfortable with.

If you are curious about Beings of Light such as angels, guides, Orbs and similar high vibrational benevolent Beings, you can intend to experience a connection or communication with them through meditation. Take some time to yourself and find a comfortable spot to sit and breathe deeply, eyes closed. See yourself cocooned in a circle of bright white light, impenetrable to all but pure Love energy. Set the intention to connect only with benevolent Beings of unconditional love and Christ consciousness. Go through the energy centers in your body and open them, one by one, starting at the root a the base of the spine and working up to the crown chakra. Visualize the energy moving up and through your body with each breath. When you feel open, aligned and ready, ask for signs, symbols or messages from the Beings of  Light. Sit quietly and see what comes. At the end of your meditation, open your eyes softly and gaze ahead, continuing to breathe deeply and slowly. Practice this sacred ritual until you can do it with comfort and ease, receiving any information that comes to you with gratitude.

And so it is

Namaste

Hearth

Published October 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hearth, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

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

Hearth: “Happiness in our hearts and homes.”

“The ancient Romans believed that every home had a heart and it was the hearth. Where the fire burned, the family gathered for sustenance, communication and protection. This concept was so important to the culture that there was a huge city hearth – the Vestal temple – where the fire of the home goddess, Vesta, burned forever without ever going out. This sacred flame was protected by the soldiers with their very lives should there be an invasion.

The place where the Goddess Vesta was honoured within every ordinary home was also the hearth, and it is where women prepared food and cooked. Some of the food was always offered back into the fire as an offering to Vesta for her blessing and protection. Often husbands were sent away on military duty for years on end and their wives at home were not just expected to keep the home and often the business running, but to wait for their husbands faithfully until their return. They prayed to Vesta to ensure their family members’ return and to keep the fires of love stoked. The saying: “Keep the home fires burning” was inspired by this practice.

Should the Hearth card appear in your divination, you are beings asked to look to your idea of what home and family is for you. Take the time to build up your ‘love’ fire and have it burning brightly. Make your relationships a priority. If there is conflict within your home and family, it is time to take concrete steps to address the issue for good. If you or a member of your family is away from home due to travel or work, know that protection is being given.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Your family may not be your flesh and blood; they may be those who have shown their loyalty and support to you through your life experiences and given you warmth, caring and love when you needed it most. Maybe these are your relatives, and maybe not, but regardless they are your true soul family, your tribe. These are the people to surround yourself with now. This is where your true home lies; as the saying goes, home truly is where the heart is.

We are so wrapped up in our lives; our responsibilities, our obligations. Bills to pay, places to get to, so much work to do it can seem never ending. So many distractions… the theme of late. Our smart phones, computers, tv’s, games and social media running our lives. The media toying with our emotions. Presidents of countries threatening each other. People killing each other. So many things to worry about.

So what can we do about all this?

We can create a cocoon of loving support and climb right in it. We can spend time with people in person… organically they call it now. You know, when you are actually in the same room with someone, speaking to them, looking into their eyes? Phone nowhere in site ideally of course. Those who love you for you. Those who make you laugh. Those who make you feel warm and fuzzy. Those who listen when you talk and hold space for where you are at. You know who they are, and if you do not, then it is time to find them.

Here in Canada it is Thanksgiving and I am grateful to have my family, healthy and happy; those of my own flesh and those who have adopted me along the way. There is always room for more love, more family, new friends and new love.

What are you grateful for today?

Namaste

Archangel Michael ~ Protection

Published September 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Michael ~ Protection, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Maroony

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Archangel Michael ~ Protection, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Maroony

Archangel Michael ~ Protection:

“For He will give His angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways.”
~ Psalms 91:11

“Archangel Michael is dedicated to the preservation of the spiritual destiny of every soul. He loves you with an intensity you cannot yet imagine as he patiently watches you, life after life, fanning the flickering embers of your soul fire on the altar of your heart, until the flame of enthusiasm and love of God burn brightly enough to consume your limitations and set you free!

As the Great Prince, Michael’s territory includes all who know that our kingdom is not of this Earth. To guide us Home, he is consecrated to attacking the evil within while challenging us to transmute negative energy into positive channels of peace, love and beauty. If the importance of your spiritual path is constantly expanding, you are working with the energy of Michael.

Michael’s ‘fire’ is much more than just an expression. The spiritual aspirant is literally burning away self-imposed limitations that surface as pockets of emotion triggered by the events of life. When you face the truth, you often feel the heat and burning of this fire. For example, the passion of anger can become an effective force for change. Accept it and feel hot, enraged, empowered! As you open your heart, the rage id transformed allowing you to seek loving solutions. Michael watches over the expansion of your soul light until you have purified yourself of karma and limitations. Each time you use opportunities to transform unwanted events, you destroy more of your false ego or small self. Michael lives for the day when you step free as your Eternal Self. His goal is the salvation of us all to once more become a loving community.

In addition to protecting our spiritual destiny, Michael also protects our bodies. Call Michael to be your champion in adverse situations, to give you courage and protection. At your final passing, Michael weighs your soul. The love-essence that you have gathered whirls up to Heaven, light as a feather, while the heavily laden ego falls. This ego draws you back for life after life until you are ready to face Michaels’ fire of transformation. If you seek freedom from rebirth, do not wait until the time of your death. Call for Michael now to guide you toward the awareness of your Eternal Self.”*

Music: “Palestina, Missa Papae Marcelli, Steel Bars”

~ By Kimberly Marooney

When I feel like I need extra protection I invoke this most powerful and awe inspiring Archangel. Michael is always willing to assist, blazing sword in hand. To me he is enormous, taller than the trees, a massive presence that fills my space with peace, strength and security. I ask him to clear my house, dissolving any cords between myself and others that are not of the Light. I ask that he purges myself, my space, my home and property with his violet vacuum, removing every particle of low vibrational or dense energies. He swiftly removes any hooks, cords, entities, attachments or implants from myself, my space and property, and by the grace of God and Source Energy, from my children, pets and family. He then purifies our auras, filling any holes or spaces with pure white light. Lastly he casts a protective shield or cloak around us all, including our space and right out to the edges of our property. I also ask him to place mobile shields around us for when we leave the safety and security of our high vibrational living space.

I ask this of Archangel Michael now; for myself and my family, today and every day to be purified, protected and shielded. And every time I ask it is done, with Unconditional Love. I am eternally grateful for the security this gives me; the peace of mind. Knowing that I am not vulnerable to the low vibrational energies and entities that may try to latch onto me or my loved ones. I know that I am always safe, always protected.

As are you. All you need to do is ask.

Thank you, Archangel Michael for watching over me today and every day. Keeping me and my loved ones and my home and property safe and protected. I am eternally grateful for your Love.

And so it is

And just for fun, one of my favourite depictions of Archangel Michael by artist Corey Wolfe:

Four of Stones

Published July 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Four of Stones, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, Illustrated by Will Worthington

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Four of Stones, from the Wild Wood Tarot, by Mark Ryan and John Matthews, Illustrated by Will Worthington

Four of Stones: “Protection”

Card Description: “A newborn fawn shelters beneath a dolmen as the midsummer sun rises, filling the land with energy. Fiery rays stream out into a dark blue sky where stars shine. On each of the stones is painted a symbol from one of the ancient Bronze Age barrows – a diamond shape, a sun circle and a forked lightning flash.”

Card Meaning: “The newly risen sun brings hope and renewed vitality to the vulnerable. Shelter and protection for the weak or the spiritually wounded is the responsibility of us all.”

Reading Points: “Many trials and tribulations surface during our lifetime, and being able to endure such times is the sign of a strong heart and healthy spirit. Finding a personal place of emotional safety may require patience and a stoical dedication to the quest, but for those who have weathered adversity and known loss, the light of life and love will always burn brightly within them. By building on a foundation of ethical beliefs, boundaries and skills, we can be assured that when the test comes we are secure in our self-knowledge and confidence. The human ability to recognize and feel compassion for those who need help is just as important. However the storm may tear at our own inner place of protection, fresh opportunities and spiritual rewards. Such is the law of karma, that each act of selfless protection and mercy for those in need revitalizes the spiritual warrior with a sense of peace and divinity rarely found in common practice.”*

~ By Mark Ryan and John Matthews

Instead of holding on to anger or frustration; send forgiveness and compassion. Instead of judging harshly, open your heart and send unconditional love and acceptance. When you feel triggered or agitated, send compassion and healing; to yourself and to the stressor. Turn the energy around in order to form a protective layer of loving energy around yourself and others. This is where the change begins. This is the alchemy of Love.

The illusion of separation is slowly dissolving and we are finally waking up to realize that we are all One. As we come to this profound realization, we start to see the intricate connection between all living beings on this beautiful planet. We see that we are all just energy resonating at different frequencies. We are all connected on a deep cellular level. 

This realization helps us to hold space for those who need to awaken, to heal, to transform, to ascend their consciousness in their own time. We can hold them in a space of allowing, of acceptance and of unconditional love. We can appreciate them for who they are, what they have come through and where they are at. We can do this without giving away our own power or our own energy. We can be a beacon of light and a vessel of Divine Love, completely protected and powerfully radiant in our cocoon of bright white love and light.

All we must do is open ourselves, body, mind and spirit to be a conduit for the Divine energies to run to and through, like water through the river bed. We are never depleted, we are never left drained. The Universe is abundant; there is always more love to go around.

No one gets left behind. That is Christ Consciousness. With it comes absolute freedom and liberation from fear.

And so it is

Namaste

The Dreamcatcher

The Dreamcatcher

The Moral Of The Story Is: “Protection from bad influences. Ability to land on your feet. Synchronicity at work behind the scenes.”

“The Seeker follows the new path that leads deeper into the forest; dappled sunlight trickles through the leafy canopy, chasing away shadows that now lay behind. Ahead of them, a woman sits in a golden hoop, her finders deftly repairing the silver strands of a delicate web.

As she notices the Seeker’s presence, she speaks. ‘How intricate are the threads that weave the fabric of our lives. Moment by moment they pass one into another, deceptively innocent in their apparent disconnection, yet all held together but by one tiny thread.’

She smiles at the Seeker’s puzzled expression and motions them forward to join her, ‘You are safe from the Baroness here; her forest ensnares unsuspecting souls, but mine is enchanted to protect them. Take refuge and recover for all will be well.’

The Dreamcatcher Card Definition: “The dreamcatcher is a favorable card that provides protection from bad influences. Synchronicity is at work behind the scenes, so no matter what you are faced with, you have the ability to land on your feet and overcome difficulty.

The Dreamcatcher, originated from Native American Indians and was used as a protective amulet, providing protection from bad dreams by capturing them in the web and only allowing good dreams to remain and slide down the feathers. Peacocks have the ability to eat poisonous plants without suffering ill effects and this is represented by the peacock feathers in the image.

Consider The Dreamcatcher as a protective amulet that will help you to overcome challenges or adversity.”*

~by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw

Sometimes we just need an extra layer of protection and support, and this is being offered to us now. When we are putting ourselves out there into unknown territory, stepping out of our comfort zone and into the new, it is nice to know that someone has our back.

You are protected. Know that this can show up in ways that may not make immediate sense. For example, maybe you meet someone who you think is amazing and want to spend more time getting to know them, but either your schedules just don’t seem to jive or you are missing a key element such as phone number or whatnot to get a hold of them. Or maybe they are in a relationship or not ready for one, the timing is off. Let it go. Even though it may bug you, let it go. Know that if they are not available to you, it is for a reason. Yes, maybe it’s timing and that could change, wait for a clear sign. Or maybe there is someone better suited to you on the horizon. Trust that for whatever reason, this is not for you right now because there is work being done behind the scenes. This example can be used in your career; maybe you don’t get the job or promotion you wanted, or maybe you get laid off or lose your job. Trust that something better is coming your way. It could be applied to where you live, maybe you want to move or don’t want to move and you are forced to do what you didn’t want. Whatever the case may be, see it instead as a layer of protection. Protection against future unhappiness and closing of doors that no longer serve you. Trust.

Maybe this protection will not be seen but more felt. Maybe nothing will change when you wanted it to and everything will stay the same. Know that there is a reason for this too. Have patience and know that what is yours will come to you. Is coming to you now. Trust.

And while you are at it, stay true to yourself and nurture your dreams.

Namaste

He of the Fiery Sword

Published March 31, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

He of the Fiery Sword, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: He of the Fiery Sword, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

He of the Fiery Sword: “The Active Principle, Spiritual Will, Justice, Protection”

“When the song comes into any of the manifest worlds – this world or Faery or another – it first encounters two principles, sometimes called yin and yang, or masculine and feminine, or Great God and Great Goddess. He of the Fiery Sword is the primary manifestation of the yang principle – action, will, movement, force, fire. We see him in many ways, each one an aspect of his total being. All of the great gods and protectors are aspects of this power.

The  fiery sword is the archetype of all magical and mundane swords, and written upon the blade are the words ‘Draw me not without cause, nor return me without honor.’ A member of the Oracle group notes, ‘His fiery sword illuminates truth and dispels not truth.’

We can call upon the master of the fiery sword when we have difficult things to do, when we need to take action that is going to require much of us, both in will and in compassion. Another of the Oracle group reminds us, ‘He will do what needs to be done with love.’

When looking at this card, my neighbour saw it not as a sword but as a feather of light. He saw it as a symbol of the ability to fly, to rise above things. An Oracle group member saw it as someone reaching up, ascending, surrounded by multiple reflections, and filled with light and power.”

Starter Reading: “The presence of the fiery sword’s master in a reading can indicate that there is 9or there is a need for) clear and focused will and a determination to carry through on decisions, even if much effort is required. Or he an tell us that such will and strength is present in regard to the issues under consideration. We need to consider how he is expressing his will and strength and how that expression may be enhanced or improved.

It is this Singer’s energy that enables us to burst the bonds of an outgrown way of being and move on to the next level. He indicates that this is a time to take action based on clear spiritual will. His presence indicates great strength and great potential for good. It also reminds us that, if we call upon him, we will receive assistance. The presence of this card in a reading radiates strength and willpower to the cards around it.”

He of the Fiery Sword as Challenger: “Like all of the Singers, this card does not have an opposite meaning as such because He of the Fiery Sword is present in full measure throughout the universe on all levels. As Challenger here speaks of an archetypal energy blocked or unaccepted by the querent or another involved in the issue. Look to the cards around it to see what may be causing this. When He of the Fiery Sword is Challenger, the question we need to ask ourselves is ‘How may I free strength and will in my life and allow the vital force to flow through?’

“Faeries cannot be pinned down to a page,
a list, a single definition. To grasp their elusive nature
requires direct experience,personal engagement.”

~ Brian Froud

I see this as a message of loving assistance from the Elemental realm of Faery. This is a huge gift and should be treated with utmost reverence. Time is of the essence here, do no delay, as Faery have no patience when it comes to humans and their procrastinating ways.

He of the Fiery Sword is here to assist you in cutting the cords that bind you. These cords are etheric, and must be removed in order for us to reclaim our energies. Some are cords that connect us to others who may be ‘energy vampires.’ Being connected to them drains our life force, causing us to experience exhaustion, self-doubt and fear of leaving them even if they are unhealthy for us. Other cords may be in the form of fearful thoughts and negative belief systems around what we are worthy or capable of creating in our lives. Whatever the case may be, the cords must be cut in order for us to move forward on our Life Path and we are being granted some very powerful help to do so.

We each know which cords must be cut. Sometimes we hold on for the wrong reasons, but be assured that cords of true, unconditional love can never be cut or removed, only those that are damaging to our body, mind and spirit.

Ask He of the Fiery Sword to assist you in removing the ties that bind you as you focus on the image of the Card. See the sword cut through, and ask that the energies of each cord be returned to sender. This is done with strength and courage, but also with love. No matter who it is you are cutting cords with, know that you are not hurting that person in any way, you are simply separating your energies in a healthy and necessary way.

Once you feel that all cords have been cut, across all time, space and dimension, and you have asked that the energy be returned to sender, take a few deep breaths and send a prayer of gratitude to He of the Fiery Sword. Really feel into your energy. Expand your aura all the way around you. Intend that you set boundaries with your energy from this day forward, it will not longer be easy to connect cords to you. Know that you are protected.

This is a whole new kind of freedom.

Namaste

Dee
