She Is The Moon: “The light of the moon ebbs and flows. The wisdom of patience is not about waiting around for something to happen rather than getting up and getting it done. The wisdom of patience is that of the gardener who consults the lunar calendar – the right timing promoting growth, planting when there is fertile soil and allowing the soil to rest and replenish when it needs to. You are being asked to check in with your timing. Is now the time for action or for rest? It can change quickly, just like the phases of the moon. If you are unsure, that is okay too. Perhaps you are waiting for more light to reveal the way, as the moon grows full All things come in time.

You message comes through this oracle – your manifestation is unfolding in perfect timing. If you feel something isn’t happening fast enough or is happening quickly and you are unsure if you are really ready, be assured, all is well. If something is not clear to you and you would like it to be more so, the clarity you seek will come to you. Do not worry, do not try to force the insight. Just be with what is happening now and trust. You are moving and growing and all is well. Soon you will see that for yourself, just as the moon grows full and revealing, even in the midst of deepest night.”

Waiting

“These moments are precious
Like jewels o the crown of life
They beckon my heart
Forming memories
That sparkle with joy
And like the longing of a sweet caress
They draw me near, melting into one
Showing what is possible
On the journey of life
Waiting for the season’s change.”

~ By Richard Cohn

What we need right now, more than anything else, is hope. Hope for a future that looks brighter than what is going on right now around us. Hope that we can rise above this chaos, this violence, this heartbreak. That there is a chance for things to get better. To stay better for longer than they have been. That we can be safe; that our loved ones can be safe. We hope more than anything for security and love.

And this message says that we can be assured that things will somehow turn around. I can’t for the life of me believe in anything else at this point. It simply must get better. There has to be a way. There has to be a way for us to surpass this. Terror and anger and fear and hatred and pain and chaos cannot win. We won’t let it. We will stand against it no matter what.

Full moon is the portal; it is the ending as it is the beginning of all things new. It is the aligning, the opening, the receiving. Anything is possible with this energy.

What do you have to give to change? How can we redirect the collective consciousness. One by one by one. Banding together into an army of Lightworkers. Raising the vibration beyond the threshold of the lower density. Connecting heart energy to heart energy. Refusing to succumb to more fear.

And knowing that we can as individuals start the shift towards something brand new.

Collectively.

Namaste

The Courage Of Your Love

The Courage Of Your Love, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

The Courage Of Your Love:

“Love is without reason; rationality is like a cane.
Judgment needs a cane, because it is blind.
When love arrives, thought dies in its shadow.
Love is the sunrise, while thought is only a flashing light.”
~ RUMI

“I do not bleat at you like a sheep, for to startle you from your slumber I need to roar like lion! You must awaken my beloved; there is no time to waster for the wolves are circling, hungry for sacred flesh. So I shall roar mightily, and although at first you recoil in fear, soon enough you will see the wolves. You become aware and grateful to have been thus awoken. Ah yes, you remember that you have a precious human life to protect. You fear me no more. You thank me. You jump on my back as if you were a warrior astride a wild mount. You roar then, along with me, awakening the others as we cause the ground to rumble, disturbing those even in their deepest slumber. You, like me, are a fierce lion, not a lamb to be led to so many slaughters, the variety of and opportunity for which is available in terrible abundance in our world.”

“There is a Sufi story about a mother with her breast leaking milk. She loses her child, and once she finds him again, instantly lets him suckle for as long as he needs.

A Sufi master nearby, says to his students, “Do you think she would throw her baby into the fire?”

And the students all say, “No! Of course not!

And the master replies, “Allah loves his children more than she, with enough tenderness to throw them into the fire.”

So it is with love. At first, as a young heart, you want only comfort for your beloved. You cannot bear the thought of pain within them, even for a moment. Your own suffering is easier than bearing the suffering of your beloved. That young heart grows wise through experience. It becomes an elder, an ancient heart tempered by grace and rendered strong with compassion. This is the great heart that can hold the suffering of the world within it, and yet still find space for peace, for sweetness, for tenderness and for rapture.

This is the heart that shines with courageous love. It is willing to feel and bear all suffering without judgment, whilst gently holding it is the truth of what that suffering really is – the drying out of the mind addicted to suffering. This drying out is a challenging and enduring process.

The path of freeing the heart from the effects of a fearful mind is an initiation into great power. So many lapses will happen before the heart grows strong enough to overpower old patterns and surrender without condition or equivocation. When it is ready to surrender in such a way, the heart is free and allowed to simply be. Even the mind then, finally freed from shackles and joyfully submitting to love, declares, “Let love be, in whatever way it shall be. I can bear it. I shall take refuge in it. I shall not turn away from it. I am that love!”

You are an ancient one with a heart older than the mountains. You are being asked to free yourself from the too-small loves of the youthful heart and come to understand and accept the wisdom of your mature heart. Your mature heart is not cured with hardness or detachment, but with compassion and tenacious devotion to the cause that is most real and matters most – the quest for life of the human soul.

Your ancient heart loves the soul and will roar like the lion of love at the wolves that would casually devour it. So trust in the courage of your heart. You are not cruel. You are not hard. You are not careless. You are passion personified. You are the lion of love. So allow yourself to be the lion, not the lamb. Stand true in your own heart. Cause trouble, make noise, be proud and be mighty. Then rest, after all after all that savage divinity, rest and restore, for day after day you shall claim your holy lands and refuse to give them up to less noble creatures. Though you survey their manipulations and attempts to claim power with compassion, you do not underestimate them or relax your vigilance. You shall not allow, for even a moment, that falsehood be vigilance. You shall not allow, for even a moment, that falsehood be accepted as truth in your heart.

This oracle comes with particular guidance for you. You are not to give into less than you are worth, or to the shaming stories of others of our culture that would cast your regal lion nature into the falsehood of beliefs that you have no choice or power. You are not to give into the idea that you are victim and cannot free yourself from your suffering, or that you are less than any other. These are lies. These are petty deceptions so unworthy of you. Do not believe them. Roar at them until the weak glue holding them together melts under the fire of your holy breath, and they lie dismembered and powerless at your feet. Then intend that those bits and pieces in decay are lovingly returned to the Earth Mother through whom they can be used to fertilize new life.

This oracle comes with another message for you. You have a challenge before you (or that you are now moving through), but you have what is necessary to succeed and overcome it. No matter how long it has endured, or how big you have built that challenge up to be in your mind, no matter how unsolvable the issue appears to be, there is and shall be a victory beyond it, and it is imminent. This oracle has come to you to let you know you are empowered to succeed, you have what is required within to do it, and that the time for your victory is drawing near.

So do not give up. Instead, do the sacred honouring ritual as needed, and when you feel so inclined, open your mouth and roar love from the very depths of your being. Create a sound of truth for yourself. In that sound you will hear the mightiest one of all roaring along with you, saying, “Yes love, I am with you, and together we claim divine victory! So we roar! how we roar!”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Say aloud: ‘IO call on RUMI, lion of love, and my own wise higher self. I now choose to assert the dignity of my soul and the power of my heart. I release all lesser bonds based in fear and deception. I no longer need to hold onto these. I am ready for truth and, with unconditional love, I am supported, protected and guided on my path to victory, held in guardianship by the unending power of love. So be it.’

If you feel the need to get down on all fours and roar a bit, do it – with relish. Then, you have finished your honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Whatever you believe about yourself and your circumstances is true. If you want to change it all, change what you believe in and how you see yourself in the world. What you so desire you are blocking by believing that it cannot come true. Your worst fears are confirmed as you look around you in this reality right now. The lack of what you wish for is so very real. The void space it leaves is so tangible, so falsely true.

You can be what you desire to be in this world and no one can stop you from being it. Aim for the stars and lead with your heart. Hold the highest good of All with every focused intention. Be your wild self, shaking off the judgment, releasing the fear, refusing the guilt.

Be you and let them get used to it. Let them feel uncomfortable. And then one day, they will be themselves too.

Every Journey Starts With A Single Step

Published September 7, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Every Journey Starts With A Single Step, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Every Journey Starts With A Single Step, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli

Every Journey Starts With A Single Step: “You are on a journey. Yes, it is an internal journey but there is also a physical expression of this journey that is going to become increasingly important to the fulfillment of your destiny in this lifetime. Your journey has started on the inside but its destination will be the physical expression of an internal healing. This journey will draw upon what you have learned and mastered over the course of your life – so much so, that you may feel as though your life experiences have prepared you just for this particular adventure.

You have all that  you need within you. This is not a time to worry about what you are going to take with you. From within your heart, you will sense what needs to come along for the ride and what is best left behind you now. You may be surprised at exactly how much can be left behind without you feeling concerned or anxious. You will be able to travel far lighter than you ever imagined possible.

To be best equipped for this journey, you will need a lightness of heart and the realization that change can be an incredible blessing, even if what you are leaving behind is something you found secure, safe, familiar or comforting. Just as the butterfly leaves the chrysalis behind when it is time to spread its newly formed wings, so too are you ready to leave behind what once was and embrace what is more appropriate for you at this time.

There is an element to the journey you are embarking upon that is unknown. Perhaps it is news to you that you are even taking a journey! However, the realization that traveling along a familiar path brings no guarantees, is more likely. This open, unscripted quality to your journey will help you gain the most from your experiences. You see, this journey is a spiritual gift. It is an invitation from the great loving heart of the universe, calling you into something that you would not have otherwise found. You are not supposed to know all the details, nor how it is going to work out, before you set out. You see, this journey is a spiritual gift. It is an invitation from the great loving heart of the universe, calling you into something that you would not have otherwise found. You are not supposed to know all the details, nor how it is going to work out, before you set out. You are just meant to take one step after the other. Again. And again. So that you can receive the gifts that are headed your way.

If you are considering taking a physical trip somewhere, this oracle comes as confirmation that the journey will in some way be a life-changing one and this is good. If the journey you are considering is of a more internal variety – such as exploring a new field of consciousness, beginning a new creative work or traveling into the void of unknown possibilities in order to start your work, – then this oracle is confirmation that it is indeed a wise choice and much new life will come of it.

This oracle brings you particular guidance that the apparently small steps you are taking in an area of your life, important to you right now, are actually far more powerful and constructive than you realize. Sometimes we are gaining ground but the effect is not immediately obvious. This doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. It simply means that the effects of your actions are cumulative and soon they will begin to overflow into the physical world with a positive impact that may surprise you. This oracle brings you the message to keep going. If you have been doing a lot of inner work and are frustrated or concerned that you are not seeing the results translate into the physical world, keep faith, as the physical manifestation of your inner work IS coming. Remember that you have all the resources you need and then some. Your inner and outer journeys are blessed with positive energy and all you need to do is keep going – one step at a time.”

Healing Process: “Say aloud, ‘Of my own free will, I now choose to surrender any fear or doubt about my ability to succeed. I believe in myself. I trust myself. I have faith in the unfolding journeys of my life, both internally and out in the world. Even in the face of the unknown, I know that positive energy surrounds me and I am protected. Through unconditional love, I am supported and assisted to take each step, as needs be, so that my great, creative, life journey can be all that it can be.’

You may like to complete your healing process with a quick dance around the room, feeling joy in your heart and lightness in your step. Just a suggestion!”*

She is completely naked with only her suitcase … the butterflies of transformation escaping to show us that this suitcase is full of hopes and dreams, not old baggage that she has been carrying around. Her nudity signifies total vulnerability and trust, no room for masks here, no room for deception. Her gaze is skyward, and she is surrounded by light, particularly around the head and crown; a symbol of her commitment to receiving and following the Divine Guidance she is receiving from Source. There is a hint of the torus vortex surrounding her, telling us that she is “in the flow” and also that she is at the center of it all, which would indicate that she is calm, centered and balanced despite what may be going on around her.

Everything that you have done to date has culminated in where you are right now in this very moment. This is the tipping point. Another full moon. Another chance to start new. Four months left of this pivotal year. What comes next?

What comes next is what you focus your intention on… right now and moving forward. Change happens; sometimes slowly, one degree at a time; sometimes radically and we are dragged along in the wake of it all. Sometimes we take bold action and charge in to meet it with our head held high. How you wish to create is up to you. What you wish to create is up to you too.

Endings and beginnings and changes and chances and anything is possible here.

Every journey starts with a single step.

Namaste

Victory Of Maryam

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Victory Of Maryam, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli

Victory Of Maryam:

“If you are longing to caress the moon,
Don’t turn away from it!
If you are not ill,
why do you crawl under a blanket to hide?

You are in a quarry of sweets.
why do you look so sour?
You live in the spring of life.
why are you withered inside?

Don’t fight against yourself!
Don’t flee from what could be your glory!

Like a fearless moth,
dive into the flame.
Why be linked to your obsessions?

Burn out in the flames,
until your heart and soul are enlightened
Get out of the old carcass
and form yourself a new body.

Why are you afraid of a fox
when you descend from lions?
Why be a lam ass
when you have the strength of stallions?

The beloved you seek will arrive
to open the door to your fortune,
for love is the key
that opens all your locks.”

~RUMI

“You feel you are a mortal and I know you are divine. You feel you are not ready for the task and I know that triumph is only moments away. You reach to me for protection but you are me, and the protection that you seek is already with you. We are not apart. I am living through all that you are and all that you love, all that you have lost and all that you offer to me in surrender. I am in you as your courage and magnificence, and any task I send to you is simply one of the tasks for which you were born. You are an eagle with wings ready to soar. So I push you from the cliff top that you may know yourself.”

“This oracle brings you a message of affirmation and success. Your victory is already assured. You are being led into it now. No matter if you believe it is not possible, and you are placing more faith in the appearance of distraction or obstacle than in utter success. No matter if you have forgotten for a moment that the divine lives in you, as you, and that apparent failure is only a part of the process, the place through which learning happens, serving the ultimate holy victory. Yes, your victory is inevitable.

So you are being given this reminder from the Holy Mother, Mary, also called Maryam, and the beloved divine presence of love that she serves. It is that presence that is real, it is the Holy Mother that is real, it is the Divine in you that is real, and all else swirls around you so your soul can play.

Every challenge and adventure is an opportunity for you to test your mettle and to be what you are in truth. The eagle that flies requires space and open sky. The tigress that hunts requires hunger to drive her to fulfill her being and live her nature. You need what you need to realize your divine nature as a living holy expression of the greatest love. So life is providing for you that your needs be met.

Whatever may be troubling you, or is soon to present itself, is not a situation or a circumstance meant to bring you trouble. You just need to allow yourself to become more eagle-eyed, beloved wild one. It is not what appears to be that is the source of challenge for you, not at all! It is only how you are viewing the situation. Can you allow yourself to shift perspective? Yes, you know this it truth. It is only in forgetfulness that fear creeps in; oh yes, to forget for a moment that you are divinity and to lapse into erroneous belief that the challenges are more real than the love they veil. No, the real challenge is in the attitude, not in any circumstance or situation.

Will you remember that all is divinity manifesting and nothing exists outside of it? All is perfectly designed to help you fulfill your being, live your truth, experience your power and reside in the perfection of your divine loving heart. Be curious rather than afraid. What is loving seeking to draw out of you now? It is always love in interaction with you, even if sometimes you feel like you are hauling a massive rock on your back, up the steepest of all hills to build a temple at its apex. Yet when that temple is built, overlooking the ocean, and a startling burst of golden orange sunset explodes across the water turning it gold, you will forget about climbing that hill. You will just drink in the view instead. You will forget what you were supposed to worry about. Oh don’t you hate it when that happens? You will just have to love that moment and be peaceful instead. It makes more sense to notice the sunset than to turn your back upon its glory and grumble about how heavy those rocks were! Then, in your inspiration and your forgetfulness, you will dream of another temple and the process of creation, perhaps with more lugging about of heavy rocks, and it will begin again. But then so too will another captivating sunset be granted, best witnessed in your newly built temple, that renders you speechless and spellbound.

This oracle brings you guidance and comfort. Whatever is going on in your life right now – whether it brings you joy or deepest struggle – is the Divine in you, as you, breaking through into your life. Do not hesitate to trust in it; embrace it fully and let it have its way. There is nothing there that needs to be resisted. You are safe to be wild, to be alive. Live it with love and let it unfold. The promise of success is yours, so allow yourself to be brought to it through the guiding wisdom of life, the life that serves love.

There is also a part of you that is daring to love, to live and to trust more so than before. You are even daring to quit the traumatic tendency to relive so many past hurts and aches. You no longer want to taunt yourself with failure and critique. You are less frightened of yourself, so you do not need to sabotage yourself anymore. You are learning love’s way and claiming it as your own. That is your path to victory assured.

This oracle asks you to trust in your growing optimism, to let the war be over now and put it behind you, even if it means weeping with sweet sorrow and relief for a while. The sunset is golden. The struggle is behind you. Now, just east and enjoy the golden glow as you rest with love a long, long while.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Don’t let your ego get in the way and spoil all the fun! As usual, it jumps right in and nitpicks everything apart with fear and doubt. Have fun with it! Walk away from the chatter and open your heart, that is the only way you will find out if what is coming is really yours.

Love is in the air, can you feel it? Do not shy away from it, it is what you have been asking for, is it not? Do not hide away your heart; open it and trust. Did you ask your angels to bring you someone special? Then keep your eyes, mind and heart open and make sure that you see them, really see them when they appear. Love comes in many forms, and when you trust that what is yours will come to you, the Universe will take care of all the details, all you have to do is show up!

Don’t buy into the what ifs.. don’t allow self-criticism to block the way. Just breathe into it. Expand your heart, your mind, your awareness. Send love to the one inside you who is so worried that you might miss out, that  one who keeps you worrying about whether you will stay alone after all. Bless and release all the worry, the pain, the doubt, the fear. Only allow the love to penetrate your body, mind and spirit.

These are exciting times, and there is a brand new year right around the corner. Things are transforming in ways that you can only imagine… so go ahead and imagine the very best!

Love is imminent

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother

Published August 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Passion Of The Wild Red Mother, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother: “Don’t ask the conscious ones about the wine. Behold the glowing effect of it in the eyes of drunks.” ~ RUMI

“Bring me your unreasonableness, your insanity, your love without reason and your passion – the passion that makes you crazy and shoos all logical restraint from your mind. Leave your ordered thoughts, sensible plans and appropriate attire at my door. Put on your animal fur and sing to me in gibberish. When my beautiful goats die, I make drums from their skins and their spirits live on in my passionate play. When my birds drop their feathers, I gather them and put them in my hair. Come drum with me, as I place feathers in your hair and we honour the spirits of my animals – of your animal nature too, wild and free as you are in truth. Stick your tongue out and growl at those who try to tame you with guilt, shame and fear. Do you think I gave a damn for any of their silly games? Those games of reason and logic. “Of course, you should do it this way,” they say, “it makes sense!” But I care not for what makes sense; I care for what brings you alive.”

You, oh blazing angel, are being invited by the Wild Red Mother to participate in a dance of divine passion. You may be an activist, a poet, an advocate for justice, or a writer, a healer, devoted to the liberation of the suffering of others and hungry to commune with ancient wisdom. Perhaps you are all of these, or some other exquisite amalgam of holy energy in form. Whatever your nature, there is passion in your heart; a fire for something more powerful than fear that can become the fuel for your life journey – if you accept the invitation of The Wild Red Mother of course!

This is the invitation to lay aside despair, to lay aside doubt in the capacity of the human heart – even your frustration and impatience. It is time to quit whipping yourself and others, no matter how noble the intention behind the whip may be and start dancing instead.

Will you join her, the Wild Red Mother, in her exuberant play? You can choose to lead through joy, to heal through love, to transform suffering into what it is mean to be; the crucible through which ecstasy reveals itself. You do not have to analyze, to stay in the throws of process and ordered stages. You can just choose this passionate path now, if you wish. You are ready. It is open to you. Will you accept?

It takes a great spirit, one with much practice of studied rebellion, to be ready to cast off the shackles of society from a place of loving defiance rather than fearful anger. And to playfully say to the world, “I have tasted your stale bread and underdeveloped wine, and have had quite enough now. I decline your offer to gorge upon such lesser fruits. I prefer to feast upon bread, hot and fresh, and wine that is mouth-filling and unctuous. Join me if you like. It is an abundant feast and there is plenty for all.”

Even in the spiritually-minded there can be a driving fear, thinly veiled as devotion to the most arduous path. Perhaps for a while that serves as a truth of sorts, but eventually there will come a time when smaller truths must give way to larger ones, so the soul can truly be free to grow.

Passion is the bridge that leads you from a smaller truth that suffering is necessary in order to heal, towards a larger and more luscious experience of life as a divine embrace. Yes, sometimes the divine lover, in all enthusiasm for the sport, bites you too hard or grabs you with so much desire that a bruise remains. However, the passion behind such fervent embrace can leave you begging for more life, for more of that boundless love, even when it knocks you on the head whilst grabbing for you. This is possible when you give up on judgement of what is good and what is bad, on what is apparently spiritual and what is not, and when you just realize everything in your life is leading to love. Whether through caress or a slap, the divine lover is seducing you. If you can accept this, you can certainly give yourself permission to love what you love, to live how you wish to live, and to forget about holding yourself back because some choices makes sense and others, supposedly, do not.

If you are able to rise to the passion that is possible for you, you will let the Wild Red Mother consume your philosophies and doctrines. She’ll feast on your religion and your plans, and devour your doubts and certainties. She’ll tear away your need for maps and directions. Just when you think there’s nothing left, she’ll grab your hands and spin with you. You’ll tilt back your head and laugh so wildly with her, spinning together, along with the earth upon her axis.

With a daring and bold love for life that will not be quashed, that Wild Mother speaks to you now. You can choose passion over fear, time and time again. So I invite you to paint the whole world red with me with passionate nature. Let us laugh and change the world!

This oracle comes to you with a message. It is a big cosmic yes. It is also an invitation to let go of suffering and struggle; not with regret or shame, but with gentle acknowledgment that it has had its purpose. It now has a bigger purpose – that of passion – which calls you to engage in the embrace of life with more abandon than ever before. Now is the time to let go of belief systems and ‘needing to know’ anything. It is time to trust in the beating of your own heart and in the people, places and experiences that truly move you, whether it makes sense or appears to be logical or not.

The Wild Red Mother comes to you when you are ready for her at a soul level. Your mind may think she is a thief in the night, ready to pilfer all you hold near and dear – and be utterly in terror at the prospect – but your soul will be gurgling with such anticipation of freedom it will fill your heart with sweet love and urge you to let go. Let her have her way with you – even if it means she crashes into you in the dark as she fumbles and drags you, half asleep, to go out dancing with her under the full moon, wearing nothing but your animal skin and a smile. She’ll soothe any bumps and bruises you receive in opening up to life with the most tender and effective of ministrations, for she is just as tender a nurse as she is a wild, raging dance partner.

This oracle also brings you guidance. You have divine permission to do something ridiculous – be it ridiculous in your own mind for your age or career path, or some identity or version of yourself you or another hold. The more ridiculous or inappropriate it seems – the more it moves you from your heart, without rhyme or reason – the better. This is not about hurting people or behaving without moral code. It is not about childish indulgence and questionable justification for letting the ego misbehave. It is not about the ego at all; the Wild Red Mother eats ego for breakfast. This guidance is about listening to the truth of your heart and allowing your soul to throb with aliveness, making that more important than any restriction, opinion, judgment or fear the mind – yours or that of others – could summon.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands open before you, and say aloud: “I call on the passionate Wild Red Mother, who loves me without condition, and the brother of my soul, Rumi. I ask for your guardianship on to the path of divine passion now. May I lead with my heart, dance in life without fear, and surrender into truth, singing with my soul, becoming a leader of the new way of love upon this sacred earth. It is safe for me to be in my wild divinity. It is the only safe and true way for me to thrive! I am blessed now and in the Wild Red Mother’s unconditionally loving protection and grace. So be it.” You have finished your sacred ritual.”*

Even as we release all of our old limiting belief systems, we somehow create more. We hold back. We worry that we aren’t doing it well enough. Maybe we compare ourselves to others, thinking that they have a special gift that we do not. We think that if only we too had that gift, then we could be as they are. We limit ourselves through our perceptions of what is possible. We hold ourselves back to protect us from rejection and judgment. The parameters change but the limitations stay in place, morphing over time to let us think that we are progressing, rising, awakening.

It’s time to see the world with brand new eyes. It’s time to break some rules! Not laws, not doing stuff that is quite obviously going to get you into trouble out there… but breaking the rules that you have set in place for yourself. Yes, those rules! Like the rule that says you have to look a certain way before you can find true love. Or the rule that says that you have to make a certain amount of money or own a particular item. You know, those rules. The ones that say you are too old or too young or too whatever it is that  you have going on in your mind. Ya, scratch all that.

It’s time to get out of your comfort zone in a big way. A passionate way. A bucket list kind of way. Like this is your last chance to get it right, a do over of sorts.

But this time, instead of going into it all serious and solemn… you are going to wildly, passionately create it. Paint it into your reality with big, huge bold strokes of colour. Unapologetically. With a maniacal grin and a bawdy cackle. You are going to take charge and shock even yourself with what you are capable of.

This is big. Life changing stuff.

Can you feel into the energy of it? Can you look into the image on the card and feel your inner fire ignited?

Plan something crazy fun. Take a chance. Give it your all.

Namaste

The Ancient Ones: “Your spiritual growth is now acknowledged and witnessed by the heavenly ones that see beyond time and space into the reality of your soul. Do not lose heart if your spirituality is not fully acknowledged, understood or appreciated by those around you in the physical world as yet. Thought they may love you, it is most likely that their vision is still bound by time and space and they cannot see into the very real gains that you have made in the subtle worlds, where all true spiritual growth begins. So the ancient ones reach out to you and bring this message: “We see you, beloved. We honour your growth. It is real, it is palpable and soon it will manifest fully in the physical world, with breathtaking beauty. We honour your light. Namaste.”

This oracle brings guidance that you have taken a leap in personal growth. If you are still testing it in the physical world, trying to translate your inner changes into outer experiences, take heed, it’s only a matter of time before you see reflected back to you in your physical world, what you have become within.And you will see it mirrored back to you in the eyes of those around you in sacred relationship, too.”

Here’s wishing you
Some sunshine
The day after the rain

Here’s a hug
Of understanding
When life
Seems filled with pain

Here’s knowing that emotion
Like wind
Blows many ways

And our course
Will seem more certain
With the Dawn
Of each new day”*

We are being tested, individually and collectively. As the old falls away and we accept the new, comfort zones are being expanded past their capacity and bursting wide open. The expansion is that big, that deep. It will blow holes in all the old, outmoded belief systems. Thank goodness for that!

People that cling on will feel the struggle. Those who go with the flow will experience the transition with more grace and ease. Those who experience grace and ease at first may come into conflict with those who are not happy with seeing them change. Many people fear change and are quick to anger when they feel they are losing control.

Yet part of all of this is the realization that there really is no such thing as control. It also is just an illusion. Of course.

You have the support of the ancestors, through many lifetimes, and throughout the galaxy. We are all coming together now. You roots go so much deeper than you think; your DNA a mixture of many beings over a span of time beyond your wildest imagination. The Ancient Ones stand by to assist you in your transition. They offer guidance, love and support. If you are willing to receive it. Do you see the Ancients in the card? They are not human yet they are our relatives across time and space. Answering our call for assistance. Speak to them in Light and they will come. It’s time for this communication to take place.

These are powerful times. The polarity is stretching, dark and light coming so far apart they can do nothing but come back together. And when they do, everything will change. It’s changing now.

Being part of the Light is a responsibility. It is a choice.

It is your Soul path; your reason for Being.

Anchor the Light despite the chaos, despite the conflict.

Choose love.

Namaste

The All-Encompassing Hand

The All-Encompassing Hand:

“You are the essence of my existence;
Who am I? A mirror in your hand!
Whatever you do, I will do.
I am your irresistible reflection.

With every breath, I feel
my heart is beating with yours.
In your joy, I am exuberant!
In your sadness, I am in sorrow.
If you are bitter, I become bitter.
If you are grace, I become grace.
My joy is when I am bewildered in your beauty
and taste the sweetness of love on your lips.

If I pick a rose without you,
it becomes a thorn in my hand.
If I am the thorn,
I become the rose in your hand.

~ RUMI

“I have held your hand in mine for so long that I have long since ceased to distinguish where your sacred flesh once felt separate from mine. This sacred grasp pulses with love divine, and there is one hand, holding and held, one being, loving and loved, though we may appear by less ecstatic angels to be two. The love that gives us this handfast, beloved, is so powerful we could spin the entire universe upon its axis, and still our hands would be joined, gently and yet enduringly, in unfailing love and sublime friendship.”

“Perhaps you are in need of reassurance, dearest one. Perhaps you have been feeling somewhat alone on your path, or struggling with a matter deep within your precious, beautiful heart and speaking of it to no one. Such loneliness that can foster in the heart! With no other to bear witness to your life experience, you may question your life, your sanity, your truths, and create doubt where no doubt need be. This must stop now. You are worthy of so much more, and this suffering is not essential for your growth now. It is time to let it be and to open up to the touch of grace.

So this oracle comes to you as the hand of the Divine. It is the all-encompassing hand, the hand that has no limitation upon the blessings it can bestow, upon the troubles it can lift from you, upon the tenderness it can communicate to you through sacred touch. Allow that divine hand to reach for you, beloved. Do not turn it away. Do not let old shame, guilt or mistaken notions of false independence keep you from accepting this heavenly hand! This hand reaches to gently wipe away tears of the past. It will deftly unravel the ties that have bound your own hands, preventing you from fully giving and receiving according to your worth which is incontestable and without limit.

This divine hand will reach for you in your meditations, your sleep and your prayers. It will reach for you through life circumstances, through the smile or hug you receive from another, or the touch of another human being. It will reach you through the song of a bird, the falling of leaves, the soft fur of a beloved pet, through song lyrics that seem to speak what you are feeling deep inside, or the colourful dress of the stranger across the street who catches your eye and makes you smile. This divine hand is reaching for you now through this oracle.

‘Yes,’ says the Great Beloved, ‘I am reaching for you. Yes, I know you – you are my own! I would never abandon you! Perhaps you have turned from me unknowingly, forgotten how much I love you because the world is in a forgetful daze too, and ignores the caress of the breeze, the joyful acknowledgment of every sunrise and the reverence made radiant in every sunset. Life is the touch bestowed by my hand. Shall you receive me? Let me love you! Let me restore your soul and remind you there is nothing to fear now. Come; lay down your weapons and your fear for this moment. Quit using that mouth to cry for war or to cry in despair. Bring yourself to my table and use that mouth to taste some bold and rich wine instead. Enjoy with me, in this moment, the unbreakable bond that lies between us. Allow me to bring the cup of wine to your lips. Behind your head, so gently, lies my all-encompassing hand. Know the peace of my love; so deeply can it register with you now, that you shall never again forget it.’

This oracle comes with a particular message for you. There may be a situation or circumstance in your life that you may feel is somehow unable to be solved. This oracle comes with reassurance that there is nothing beyond the reach of the divine hand of grace. All can be solved, all can be resolved; there is always a higher, better, more beautiful outcome possible.

You are asked to pray using the sacred honouring ritual, and to do so with conviction. The Divine has this situation ‘in hand’ and all is unfolding as it should be. Ask for help each day by saying: ‘I ask for help this day, in all ways, through unconditional love. Thank you.’

You can be more specific in your request, asking for help in a particular relationship, or project too if you wish. The Divine wants to ‘lend you a hand.’ You must ask for help first however – so ask. Empower that all-powerful hand of grace to bless your life and all circumstances, relationships and situations that have been or are yet to be for you.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place one hand resting upon the other with palms joined together.

Say aloud: ‘Through the loving grace of RUMI, brother of my soul who loves me without condition, these hands are now blessed as the hands of the lover and the beloved, as the one divine hand, all-encompassing. I am blessed, protected, nurtured and received. I am touched by the Divine with compassionate mercy and loving tenderness. I call on the hand of grace to touch, heal, bless and protect all aspects of myself and my life journey. Through divine grace, so be it.’

Simply rest with your hands in the same posture for several moments, then finish your ritual.

If you wish, you may continue by speaking in prayer to the Divine and offer up any issue or concern you have. Give it a voice; it doesn’t matter how small or major the issue may seem. Talk it over with the Great Beloved, a wonderful and responsive listener!

When you are finished, place your hands in prayer, bow your head, and simply say thank you. You have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

You are loved. You are supported. You are protected. Nothing can stand in the way of what is yours; the opportunities that you feel you  have missed, the mistakes that you have made, and the pain that you have suffered is all in the past. Blockages are being removed. Belief systems are changing. The old is being released. A new chapter of your life is unfolding.

All IS Well.

No matter what the past looked like; and even the present situation, things are changing, transmuting and transforming into something new. Doors are being flung open. People are coming into your life, filling the spaces that others left open when you parted. You heart is ready for much more love than it has ever experienced; more joy than it ever thought possible.

There may be some discomfort first, as we break free from this reality, but do not worry, Dear One, I am holding your hand in mine. We will navigate this new world together.

Namaste

Dee
