He of the Fiery Sword

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.

Difficulty in the Beginning

Published March 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Difficulty in the Beginning, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Difficulty in the Beginning, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Difficulty in the Beginning: “What might seem like chaos and confusion around you or within you right now is actually a much needed jolt. It is becoming apparent that certain aspect of the life to which you have become accustomed are dramatically being shaken up. Whether you think you are ready for it or not, the outgrown is already falling away. Just as the smallest seed requires tremendous energy to break open, once it does it leaves the shell behind. Then, faced with innumerable challenges, it emerges from the darkness into the light. This happens in the right timing of things.

In retrospect, you will see this as a birth that not only strengthened your ability to ‘roll with the punches,’ but increased your capacity to endure difficult transitions. In the interim, though, you have every right to feel vulnerable and shaky, but don’t let that stop you! Much of what was a source of security and protection is being buffeted to the point where it is difficult to know what you want, which way to move, or what is expected – and there my be questions and doubts in many areas of life where once there was unshakable certainty. But feeling doubtful now is not necessarily a bad thing – in fat, it is an inevitable part of the process of dismantling the old to clear the way for the new. However difficult or painful it may be, this is a vitally important stage of your growth.

Rather than feeling sorry for yourself or mourning what is lost, prepare to face the new challenges and possibilities that will soon appear on the horizon. The nature of this particular journey is that once it has begun, there is no turning back. Although at times the landscape might seem totally unfamiliar, keep a steady pace and stay in touch with the real needs of the moment rather than projecting into the future. Any attempt to create a plan or ‘make sense’ of things is premature and will just lead to repetitiveness, frustration, and unnecessary confusion. So be gentle with yourself, and go slowly. There is no rush – each and every step counts.

Your capacity to trust in the mysterious rhythms that are impacting your life now is being strengthened, and as a result you may discover yourself approaching change with an inner calm that once would have seemed impossible. Breathe deeply and stay alert. Don’t be shy or too proud to ask for help when it is needed, and receive it with humility and gratitude when it is offered. You may know someone who has walked this walk and whose wisdom will be a source of support and encouragement for you now.

Likewise, tune in to the inner guide, the voice of truth that speaks from your intuition. If you respect and stay in touch with its guidance, taking the time to listen, you will find it never fails to dispassionately reveal the next step. Patience, perseverance, and gentleness with yourself are essential now. Though challenging nature strengthens every growing thing, just think what an intimidating and arduous journey it is from the egg to the open sky! Get into the spirit of adventure while taking care not to put yourself or others at risk; there is much that needs to be attended to. It is the dawn of a new day and you are more than ready to move on; if you weren’t , the Tao wouldn’t have provided this opportunity.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

Ego likes nothing more than to run the show; with a flair for the dramatic and a tendency to repeat old habits and patterns of behaviour ad nauseam. As we kick ego to the curb and actually progress along the road less traveled, it is bound to kick up a fuss. This is the fear and doubt you may be experiencing now. Acknowledge it, and move forward regardless. One foot after the other.

The progress need not be hasty, it is more about consistency now. It is about perseverance, determination and commitment to something brand new; pure and completely authentic. It is about living in integrity, in alignment with Higher Purpose. It is not about the accumulation of material worth, but about finding conviction in our own self worth. That is where the treasure lies.

Yes, it’s going to be uncomfortable. Yes, there may be those around you who would align with your ego and fight for things staying the same. Move forward anyway. There may be challenges, road blocks or just some stumbling blocks. Move forward anyway.

This is a powerful new Moon and we can use it to our advantage. Aries is about getting out there and getting things done. It is about harnessing your energy and focusing it onto your goals, taking action and making things happen. It is not a time of sitting around hoping and wishing, it is about getting er done! It is the perfect time to take steps to change what isn’t working in your life, painful or not, and get things moving in the right direction. It’s time to take the reins.

What you put out there right now is what you will create in the very immediate future. It will impact the rest of this year and the nine year cycle we are embarking upon this year. Get really clear on your intentions. Write them down. Read them out loud. Light a candle. Say a prayer. And see just how powerful your manifestation skills really are.

Hand Of Fatimah

Published March 25, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hand Of Fatimah, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hand Of Fatimah, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

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.” *

Ishtar Card Artwork by Jonathon Earl Bowser

~ 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

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.

Namaste

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.”*

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
