Hand Of Fatimah:

“I can never leave you,
not for a moment,
not for an hour.
You are in everything I do.
You are my everything.

My drink is your sweetness.
I move to your command.
I am a surrendered prey in your hands,
and you are my consuming lion.

Your soul and my soul
are truly One Soul.
I swear to our One Soul,
I long for no one but you.

In the garden of your grace,
I am only a germinating sprout.
The crown of my blooming
is the desire to be in your arms.”

~ RUMI

“My hand watches over you. It brings you blessings and comfort, protection and grace. Radiant with divinity am I, and you are my child, my beloved, my angel and my body too. I shall never leave you. Turn your inner eye to me and see the light of my grace in your heart. You cannot be harmed. You cannot be defiled. You can only ever be what you are – me, alive, radiant with love.”

“You are giving birth to more spirit than you have ever held before. During such times, a divine midwife can be helpful and supportive. This is Fatimah, Radiant Daughter of the Great Beloved, who reaches from the skies, who reaches up from within your body from deep within the earth, and brings you the gift of protection, grace and love. You are safe. You are held and you are bound within her warmth. She has received your prayers and she honours your devotion to life, to love and to growth.

She will help you. Ask for her blessing daily. You can use the simple sacred honouring ritual to do so if you need guidance on how to pray to her, but any words from your heart spoken in authenticity will suffice, no matter how simple or ornate they may be. She responds to the feeling behind the words and she responds instantly, beyond time and space; in fact, she has responded even now, perhaps before you even knew she was needed.

This oracle brings you the guidance that what is being born in your life right now, in our own consciousness as a seed – perhaps of a new way of being, a new idea, belief system, philosophy or sense of self – is going to come to maturity under the loving protection of the Divine Mother.

You are also being asked to heed your intuition and instincts. Have some discernment about who you involve yourself with an dhow you choose to use your time and energy. Allow yourself to feel Fatimah’s guidance and comfort in you by giving yourself permission to be nurtured – through your own choices and the people or situations you say yes or no to  in your life. This is a way to honour her presence ad allow her to help you, which she wishes to do in all ways possible. Love is all things you see, dearest angel, and that means saying no can mean saying yes to something greater. So give yourself permission to say your no and yes as dictated by your heart.

This oracle also brings you the message that your body is sacred and worth your attention. You do not have to become obsessed, you do not have to push or judge your body, but you can honour him or her as a sacred animal through which your spirit creates soul and expresses itself in the world. This is a truly wonderful and amazing gift, extraordinary and yet fraught with challenge. The spirit can be powerful – sometimes it can be hesitant too – enough to really engage with the body and ‘come to life’.

There is a story that the angels sang music to lure the spirit into the body, but used to its freedom, it was reluctant to experience itself in what looked like rather confining matter! The spirit did not know that Fatimah would be initiating the spirit into her mysteries through the body. She was going to be sharing the sensuality of life, the sacredness of love, the deep mystery of life, death and rebirth, and the wonders of nature. She was going to show the Divine could live not only in light but also in flesh.

Fatimah holds the wildness of divine feminine wisdom and the sanctity of life. She has great gifts of ecstatic presence only able to be experienced through the spirit living in the body. She will share this if you allow her to guide you. Once the spirit recognizes this, even just gets a whiff of Fatimah’s glorious fragrance, the enthusiasm for life ignites, and the wonders of the world experienced through the body become a way to revere the Great Beloved, and turn all of life into the temple of love.

This oracle also comes with guidance. Giving your body rest and healing is most beneficial at this time. There are symptoms you are experiencing – anything from fuzzy-headedness to tiredness and aches and pains, as well as shifts in body temperatures that seem unbalanced – and these are directly related, if not solely, to the interaction of your spiritual essence with your sacred animal body. These will even out under Fatimah’s grace and protection, life two housemates learning to live together and enhance each other, rather than distract and annoy each other with their quirks and differences. This settling in process will happen all the more easily when you ask for Fatimahs’s help.

This oracle also advises that if you ask for help and protection in any matter, it will be granted. There is no exception to this rule. There is noting you have done that has made you unworthy of divine intervention, grace and love. Not one thing, ever. Ask, trust and receive.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual:

“Place one hand on your heart and one on your belly, and say the following aloud:
‘Fatimah, who loves me unconditionally, bless me with your hand of protection and your radiant grace. May I love my body and live my divinity in totality.
My spirit is my body. My body is my spirit.
Arwahuna
ajsaduna
wa-ajsduna
arwahuna.’
Repeat, slowly and carefully, three times, then rest if you wish to. When you are ready, you have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

We are undergoing a process of the integration of body, mind and spirit. We are no longer separated from our higher selves, our Light bodies are a part of our physical bodies and we are taking on more and more light as the process continues. At this time it is absolutely vital that we honour our bodies as the sacred temples that they are, as the old saying goes ‘If you do not have your body, where will you live?’

You will find your tastes are changing in many ways. Honour this shift. You may be drawn to drink more pure water, less sugary, caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. You may not desire to eat as much meat, if any at all. You are or soon will be drawn to natural fruits and vegetables; foods which hold the most ‘prana’ or life energy. You need less to satiate you and will tend to eat smaller portions throughout the day.

Your sleep patterns are changing. Honour this. Whenever possible, sleep when you are tired. Listen to the rhythms of your body. Take a break when you need to, even a short one. Breathe deeply. Pay close attention to your dreamtime.

Watch where you place your energy and intention, and whom you choose to spend your time with. Stay away from toxic people as much as possible, even if this means making some significant changes in your life. You will find yourself more sensitive to the energies of the people around you. Honour this. Step back from those who do not hold the highest intention. Refuse to participate in gossip, judgment or exclusion.

Spend time alone whenever possible. Meditate. Do yoga. Breathe. Heal yourself.

You are changing, shifting, transforming. Some of this will be out of your comfort zone. Embrace it. Allow it. Receive it. And know that all is well. All is in perfect Divine Order.

Namaste

Ishtar ~ Boundaries

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ishtar ~ Boundaries, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ishtar ~ Boundaries: “Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your energy”

Message From Ishtar: “A sincere desire to give of service is wonderful. However, there is a distinction between giving of yourself and giving up yourself. If you feel tired, guilty, or resentful while helping others, then you are not truly helping them, are you? You are injecting poisonous energies into the relationship, and then no one benefits. Step back and reassess the situation. As you respect your own boundaries, others will begin to recognize and respect them within you, and within themselves as well. Now that is a healthy behavior to teach others!”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You are giving too much. Become more assertive. Do not do things out of guilt or obligation.”

About Ishtar: “She has been worshiped and invoked since ancient Babylonian times as the embodiment of Venus’s womanly energy. Ishtar represents the Divine feminine in all of her aspects, including nurturing, mothering, sensuality, fertility, healing, protection, and wisdom. As a multidimensional goddess, Ishtar does not tire of helping the men and women who call upon her for assistance.” *

~ By Doreen Vitue, Ph.D

Boundaries are so important and it is imperative that you work on yours now. You cannot let your energy be sapped by others, or by spreading yourself too thin. This is a powerful time of manifestation, and you will become a beacon of light to those who wish to have what you are creating. It is important to know the difference between inspiring and empowering others, and being taken advantage of. Not everyone wants to put in all the hard work that you have put in; maybe they are stuck in “victim mode” and believe that circumstance has robbed them of their true birthright. Maybe there is someone who is jealous or envious of what you have, and rather than working hard to create the same for themselves, they seek to take what is yours.

Do not let these energies scare you, and remember that you are always in complete control of your own energy. Protect yourself by creating boundaries, both physical and energetic. You can physically distance yourself from people who do not resonate with you, who are negative towards you, have toxic behaviors or who are always blaming or complaining. Even if you feel guilty for taking a step back, this is exactly what you must do at this time. In fact, by doing so, you are actually doing them a favour – instead of enabling, you are empowering them by forcing them to tackle their own lives instead of focusing on yours.

Energetically, you can use protective stones, such as obsidian, black tourmaline and labradorite (to name just a few) to protect your energy. These stones can be worn or carried to create an energetic barrier between you and others. Be sure to cleanse them regularly. You can also create crystal grids in you home to protect it and keep the energy positive and uplifting, or place crystals such as clear quartz or apophyllite in the corners of a room.

Ten Of Pentacles

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ten Of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Ten Of Pentacles: “This is a card of prosperity that leads to happiness with home and family. The supportive family environment offers emotional and financial security. As an undertone in this card, there is heritage in the sense of family continuity that may be manifested as money or goods passed along through the generations, as with heirlooms, traditions, or stories. This card also indicates accumulated wealth bringing stability and ongoing contentment to the family. The timing of this prosperity may be in middle life rather than something one is born into, showing that finances have been carefully handled to ensure future security and provide for the needs of the family, perhaps as investments or savings for the education or vocational training for the children.

Another aspect of this card is that of buying or selling a house or property, refinancing the property, or spending money on redecorating or making repairs. It can also imply an extended family dwelling together, perhaps three generations under one roof, or a family providing for the care of other family members. Depending on the surrounding cards, this card could indicate a change of location, such as selling one house and buying another. While it is generally an auspicious card, there may be other issues concerning possession of the home if there are other cards in the spread that relate to legal matters or inheritances.

Cowslip, for prosperity, beauty, and protection, grows along the garden wall. A kingfisher, a symbol of prosperity, harmony, and happiness, is perched on a branch, gazing into a pond.”

Meaning For The Ten Of Pentacles Card: “Prosperity for the home, buying, selling, redecorating, refinancing, making home repairs, favorable placement, good investments, fruitful marriage, stability, legacy, family heritage, heirlooms, traditions being passed to the next generation, contentment, supportive family environment.”

As Challenger: “Disruptions, family quarrels, problems with a legacy, loss of inheritance, gambling”

Prompt Words: “Prosperity for the home”*

~ By Ann Moura

If money has been an issue lately, let that feeling of lack go completely and feel into trust. Trust that the Universe is providing for you. Know that there is money flowing to you, and through you. You are an important part of the economy, and you will be able to receive and also to give freely. Know that you deserve this prosperity, and that you can use it for your own life and loved ones; and that you will also be helping others. You help others by contributing to their success as you spend money in their shops or businesses; this would be a very good time to commit to purchasing from locally owned and operated “mom and pop” stores rather than the big box conglomerates.

You may receive an heirloom or inheritance of sorts, possibly in the form of an investment or buyout, valuable information, money, jewelry, or trust fund. Whatever it is, it will assist you to release the worries and pain that you may have experienced in the past regarding money and security in your life. It may not be a huge windfall, but it will be exactly what you need, when you need it.

Know in your heart that you can ask for what you need. Consult your angels and guides, tell them what you desire and then move forward, knowing it will come to you. Release the habit of focusing on what you don’t have or can’t see in your current reality, for this is an old way of thinking which no longer serves you.. (and never did!). Know that you are always supported, protected and provided for as the Divine child that you are.

Affirmations:

“I Am Loved, I AM Supported, I AM Provided For

I gratefully accept gifts of love, abundance, and prosperity today and every day.”

And so it is

Namaste

Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing

Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing, from the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Wang Yiguang

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing, from the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Wang Yiguang

“You have a journey ahead of you. There is a particular path that you are meant to take, so that you shall be in the right place at the right time, to encounter the experiences that you are meant to have and the people that you are meant to meet. This journey will lead you across the water, far away from what you have known. To bear the crossing of the water, you must lose sight of the shore. It is part of your destiny, your sacred life path, to take this journey. So although you may feel excitement or fear, hope or uncertainty about whether you are up to the task, know that it is meant for you and Grandmother shall watch over you. She shall give you means for the journey and ensure that the crossing of the water is safely undertaken. Be light of heart, beloved, even as you may mourn what is left behind, for this journey is divinely blessed and will bring great success.”

“There are times in life when we must cross the water if we are to grow rather than wither and retract. To grow requires courage but offers the reward of radiance and fulfillment beyond what we have experienced. To cross the water implies more than simply taking a trip, it refers to a more life-changing experience of committing to and taking a journey. A journey is not only an external experience, it is an internal adventure too. Whilst a trip is interesting perhaps and gives us some nice experiences but fundamentally leaves us the same person upon return, a journey changes us on the inside. A journey is as much, if not more so, about the process of travel itself. The internal growth that comes through taking a journey – a journey that leads us beyond what we have known and asks us to ‘cross the water’ into new territory – is what marks it as a divine adventure.

Such an adventure offers us opportunities to mature – to open our minds, to become wiser, more tolerant, more curious and less certain of how life should be. We can experience ourselves in different ways. It can be uncomfortable but exciting, certainly it will involve venturing into the unknown. We may have to leave behind support systems in many senses and become more reliant upon ourselves and the inner guidance of our heart. When a journey is meant to be, however, the Divine Mother will provide the necessary tour guide or person with greater experience to help you along your journey. If you have also drawn the oracle of Sacred Sherpa Guides you Beyond, or feel intuitively the need to read the message and complete the healing process for that card, then a significant aspect of this journey will be trusting in an experienced guide to help you through your journey. This guide may be an actual person, or it may be information as well as spiritual protection, that comes to you as needed. Even if you do not feel drawn to that card, this oracle of Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing confirms that whatever hep or divine protection you need is there for you. It may just be that you experience it as a sense of invisible but palpable protection or ‘luck’ and ‘good timing’ to help you throughout your travels.

The crossing of water meant for you at this time – or imminently – may be in a physical sense. Opportunities to travel can arise where you choose to leave the home you have known to literally go venturing overseas.

There are also other profound ways to cross the water that may or may not accompany a physical relocation. These crossings of the water are where we leave behind a state of being or consciousness in favour of another. That may include releasing a sense of self, of identity, of certainty about ourselves or the world, to bravely venture towards an as-yet-unknown destiny. We will have little idea as to what we are doing or where we are headed at times. We will likely feel lost and out of place, sometimes not really feeling like we belong anywhere in particular nor having really settled and found our home or place in the world. Even in our place of birth we may feel we are a stranger passing through. Having such experiences is a sign that a journey across the water is taking place, symbolic and internal, but just as real.

The oracle of Grandmother Ensures Safe Crossing indicates that not only are you on the journey but you must keep looking. You have somewhere to go, a home to find, but you have not quite found it yet. there is something more for you to discover about yourself and your place in the world. There is a part of you that understands this. Perhaps you have fought it, tried to fit in with the ways of those around you, yet you are urged to remain true to the yearnings of your soul and continue your adventures. Do not imagine that where you currently find yourself is to be your resting place. There is more for you in your life, further adventure awaits you.

There will be a sense that every life lesson you have struggled through and mastered will have bearing and offer support to navigate the journey you are taking now or will soon embark upon. The emotional component of your journey may include grief and feelings of insecurity as you let go of the familiar. The gift tantalizingly offered as the treasure you seek on your adventure will inspire you to move beyond what has been comfortable, to take a risk for the mere possibility that you could obtain your heart’s deepest desires and live a life you truly know you were created to live.

This particular journey and the discontent or curiosity about ‘something more’ that triggers its beginning is meant to be. Reward will certainly come; whether it is the reward you imagine now or one even more wonderful and miraculous than you can currently fathom, that can only be determined in time and only realized through the experience. There are no guarantees given as to how your journey will unfold, just that you have had all the preparation you need, even if you doubt your readiness and that the ancient wisdom of the Divine Mother in the form of Grandmother will protect you. When the time is upon you, when you feel the stirring of discontent or the call of the wild to grow and expand, you are best to answer with a huge, heartfelt YES!

The sanctuary, guidance and protection of the Hold Grandmother is with you to ensure the success of your journey. Grandmother watches over the weaving of past, present and future. She understands that what happens now is the planting and fertilizing of the soul seed which will come to blossom more fully in accordance with your divine life purpose. She will nudge you when you need to be nudged, comfort you when you become uncertain, and provide the means for you to take step after step towards your destination. She is the representative of the Holy Mother. She will ensure safe passage, no matter how arduous, challenging or downright intimidating the prospect of the journey of transformation may seem. Grandmother lives within your heart as wisdom and has the power to attract whatever is needed to assist you on your journey. Believe in the journey, beloved wild child, and in your ability to see the steps before you and take them. Reaching your destination will then happen of its own accord, and by the time you get there the journey will have matured you to be absolutely ready to receive your fulfilling grace.

This oracle comes with a particular message, a guarantee of supreme success in a venture you are considering. It will as you to grow, but the success is there for you if you are willing to take the journey.

If you have been considering a move or profound life change then this oracle comes as confirmation that not only are you meant to be taking that journey, but that the Divine will ensure protection and success. Life changes here could be those of career, religious or spiritual matters, life style or even sexual orientation. It could be any choice that feels as though it will take you more truthfully into your essence, even whilst in the process causing some upheaval for others as well.

Remember to complete the following healing process. Surrender your control around how the journey unfolds and where it leads you. Start with your commitment to take the journey and then trust your heart to lead you each step of the way.”

Healing Process: “Say this prayer. If you are already ‘on your journey’ and times are challenging, you may like to say it each morning and night.

‘Kuan Yin, who loves me without condition, Holy Grandmother, who cares for my soul with merciful grace, watch over me, protect me, guide me on all levels of my being in all possible ways. Help me take the journey before me now with courage and wisdom. Give me clear signs to follow and help me to realize the strength I have within me to rise to any challenge. Help me find the courage within to explore beyond what I have known, and to feel and trust in the guiding wisdom and power of my own heart. Through your blessing, my supreme success is ensured. Thank you for your gracious blessings. I receive with an open heart and willing mind. Through my own free will, so be it.’

Once you have said the prayer, you have finished your healing process.”*

This journey is both physical and metaphorical. As you commit to embarking on your Spiritual Quest, assistance comes in many forms. The journey you are about to commence will be one of many twists and turns. It will change you. Transform you. It will be life changing in ways you cannot yet comprehend, or even imagine. It will stretch you and expand you beyond your comfort zones in many areas. It will break down barriers and it will lead from Earth to Stars.

Yet there is so much comfort here. Divine Grandmother soothes your doubts and fears; she nourishes your Soul and prepares you for the challenges ahead. Her great wisdom permeates your Soul, and you are held fast in her protective embrace. You feel the Oneness in All; your deep connection to her. Although you have no idea now of how this journey will end, you know that she will be with you each and every step of the way.

Connect to the elements now, for they are your allies. Honour them by creating a sacred altar. Add something special to you as an offering to Divine Grandmother, Spider Goddess, Old Woman, Crone. Know that her magic is woven of the Light and will always catch you when you feel yourself fall.

Change is all around us now. Be it as deeply as you can.

Dive right in.

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Protection, from the Whispers of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Protection: “Protect your energy as you lift your vibration and frequency”

“As you continue on your spiritual path you begin to lift in vibration and frequency and you continue to experience new levels of love and light. Your energy body undergoes an essential transformation. These changes in the energy body require that past pain, and limiting views of self be released. When this happens and the pain comes to the forefront of your experience, it can definitely feel like you are taking quite a battering!

Ask Ganesha to surround you with his beautiful energy at this time. You may envision this energy as red, yellow or white in colour, or in any colour that resonates with you. Imagine this energy is filled with love and light. It is said that Ganesha oversees the angels of protection. Ganesha’s light energy serves to release any negative energy within its field into light. Visualize negative energy, entities, memories or stuck energy being released from your spirit, mind and body.

When previous pain shows up, it may not be a clear cut memory of a particular past even or feeling of fear. Past experiences may be reflected in your current challenges and lessons. It appears in a form that will trigger you now, bringing up resistance and distraction to be dealt with immediately. Keep in mind to respond with love. You are assured that you will continue to grow and evolve through this challenge. Ganesha will assist you in protecting your energy for the best possible results.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

There is so much going on in the world right now… chaos and upheaval, fear and hatred, terrorism and war… and we are all affected by it, even if it is not happening in our own back yards. We are being lead to believe that we are not powerful. We are being told that we need to stay safe, hide away and obey the powers that be. We can take on the collective consciousness, the mass hysteria… or we can protect ourselves and our energy and continue to do what we came here to do.

We are so much more powerful than we are lead to believe. And we are starting to exercise some of that power, and it is making those in a position of power very uncomfortable. We need to stand up for what we believe in. We need to protect what we hold dear. And we must link arms and rise up to protect our Great Mother… before it is too late.

Do not let the fear hold you back. Encircle yourself in bright white light, every morning before you even get out of bed, and strengthen it again as you get into bed. Create a powerful shield around you that is impenetrable by all energies but that of Love. This will give you freedom from the chaos. It will give you clarity, it will give you strength, and the courage you need to step into your power.

Do not underestimate the power of Good that we have at our disposal. Call in all of your benevolent beings of Light to assist you in shielding yourself. Know that you are protected. Know that you are here to heal.

And know that you are unstoppable, especially when we All come together.

Namaste

Jade Emperor

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Jade Emperor, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Jade Emperor: “Organization”

“Streamlining, reordering and decluttering will clear the way to a flow of natural, effortless action”

“The Jade Emperor – or the Heavenly Grandfather, as he is also known – is one of the most beloved and most courted of the Chinese Taoist gods because of his benevolent protection and supreme organizing ability.

As a young deity, the Jade Emperor wandered the earth, humbly helping humans make sense of the world. He taught them how to manage their settlements and their sorrows. To protect the humans, he also defeated the negative energies referred to as demons. Although he possesses a loving energy more than that of a fighter, there are many accounts of the Jade Emperor retreating back to himself to gather his energy and strength in order to have the knowledge and power needed to conquer significant evil energies. It is because of these deeds that he eventually became the administrator of the immortals, the Heavenly Ruler.

Under his leadership are assistants who ensure his Wu way (natural effortless action) is adhered to. These assistants are ordered according to departments, with different gods as the head of each department, but all take authority from the Jade Emperor.

Should the  Jade Emperor enter your realm, it may be time to reorganize, rearrange, and reorder some part of your life. Planning is a key part of getting your desires met. Do not view it as a chore but as something exciting – it leads you to where you most wish to be. Do you need to plan your schedule more effectively? Do you have too many assignments to write, or are your extracurricular activities keeping you so busy you feel hectic? If you have a job, is it difficult to find the time to do everything? Can you not decide what path you want to take because too many seem to be clamoring for attention Writing things out, planning your time, and organizing your thoughts and actions will help, and the Jade Emperor can assist you with this.

Having a clear and workable environment enables you to achieve much more in less time as well. Creating some simple systems can increase your flow of positive energies, such as prosperity and creativity. Take this opportunity to streamline your life.”

Shadow Side: “You can be too structured, which can limit your creativity and your ability to be spontaneous. The shadow side here is having too much order in your life, too much rigidity that you set for yourself and ensure you are being healthily lenient with yourself when you can. Balance is key. Stretch out, reach out, and open for the Wu way.”

Symbols: “Golden palace, robe with dragons embroidered upon it”

Invocation: “This is a wonderful invocation to invite the Jade Emperor to help better organize and simplify your situation.

Light a stick of incense and hold it in your hand in a prayer position:

Say: “I humbly call upon you, Jade Emperor”

Then allow the incense smoke to permeate through your home or office and petition this supreme organizing energy to help simplify, clarify, protect and declutter your space.
Sprinkle some sea salt around the area and then chant three times:
‘Noble Emperor,
Every place has a place.
Noble Emperor,
Every item has a home.
Noble Emperor,
Heavenly Grandfather,
Make sense of chaos.
Transform and order.
Allow me to discard cleanly
And treasure carefully.’

Now begin to sort what you need to sort. Freely discard what you no longer need or what is broken. File or place in storage what you decide to keep. Then repeat the chant and vacuum up the salt.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

We have one month of 2016 left and we are on to creating something new. It’s time to streamline, de-clutter and make space for something new. What (or who!?!) do you STILL need to release? And why are you STILL holding on?

There is an aspect of surrender to this message as well… maybe you have been fighting to keep something going that is just not working out. Maybe you have been clinging on to someone who is not healthy for you. Maybe you have clung on to old belief systems around what your life should look like or what you are capable of. Whatever it is, this is last call. Let all that go and get ready for something amazing and brand new.

The new is coming whether you are ready for it or not. Decide right now to make space for it, in your heart, in your mind and in your life.

Oya is particularly favorable to women who have need of protection and action, and she assists women in matters of equality with men. Her mysteries were traditionally passed from women to woman, mother to daughter, so many of her rituals have been kept tightly. She is considered a goddess of magic, and her nine daughters help her to cast change magic.

Oya may come into your life when you most need change but are seemingly unable to invoke it yourself. If you are in a rut of find yourself in a situation that you simply do not have the resources to change, she is a great goddess to invoke. Sometimes we all need to move a part of our lives in a certain direction but don’t have the strength to begin – such as moving away, saying good-bye, or breaking up with someone. Oya can help you make change that are necessary but may be very difficult. As a goddess of divination, she gives you clear, concise answers when you consult her.”

Shadow Side: “Oya is a ferocious storm bringer. If you call upon her without good cause of purely for revenge against the person that you are changing away from, then this energy may be turned upon you. True power is handled and sent from a centered place, yet in this day and age we see power misued everywhere. Oya’s warrior energy is fierce too – there may be alternatives to such a forceful, action oriented approach.”

Symbols: “Dark skinned goddess wearing purple, horned turban or hat, the number nine, storms, rain, water buffalo”

The best time to invoke Oya is during a storm.”

Oya comes to us as we are stepping back into the Divine Feminine, taking back our power. This message is not just for women, for we all have a balance within that has been out of sync for far too long. We are all Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. When in balance, these energies can co-create harmoniously.

But they have not been in balance for a very long time. This is mirrored to us in the ludicrous antics of the American political situation. It is mirrored in the violence and oppression of women and minorities. It is shown to us every time a woman, child or animal is hurt or killed at the hands of a man. Things are way out of balance.

Yet, there is hope. Change is coming. Change is here, coming at us fast like a Tsunami. We cannot hold back this change, even if we wanted to. And Oya is here to stir up the winds of transformation. She is here to make space for us to come back into our power; men and women alike. She is here to show us that we must align with our Highest Good and our Highest potential in order to live our Soul purpose here on the Earth plane.

No more victim and aggressor. No more power struggles. No more battles; dominant vs submissive. This is a powerful yet delicate balance. We do not want to go the other way, taking more power than we need. We must become the circle; the yin and the yang; perfectly whole, equal to each other. No one higher, no one lower. No one struggling while another profits.

Oya has come to shake things up for us:

Ready or not.

Here we go.

Finally

Namaste
