Sunstone: “Trust. Even if a situation seems opaque and unknowable, trust that you will find a way through. Look past the illusion – discover the facts. Seek clarity. Find a different perspective.”

“White and opaque,
Always sun and no sun.
The stars, they hide
Directionless upon the horizon.
And yet,
There is a way, another way.
By looking through crystal,
Sharply, the stone reveals
Our most desired treasure.”

“The Vikings’ extraordinary navigational skills led to remarkable raiding and trade successes. Their cultural ambition to greatly extend their territories was supported not only by the solidly built boats they constructed but by their ability to travel the seas with safety and accuracy.

The Icelandic Sagas of the 1st century AD tell of the Vikings sailing from Bergen, on the coast of Norway, to Iceland, continuing to across to Greenland, and then to a land that is almost certainly Newfoundland. Yet, the Vikings ha no compasses (as this incredible navigational fear was realized well before the magnetic compass reached Scandinavia from China), and they were, for the most part, out of sight of land, and thus had little access to navigational land points. Not only that, but the Arctic regions they traversed are notorious for bad weather, including storms and even complete white outs, which meant that neither the sun nor the stars could be relied on for guidance.

According to Viking records, the secret of this and other navigational feats was the ‘solarsteinn’ or ‘sunstone’, which was said to reveal the true position of a hidden sun, as occurred in the low contrast days of the almost twenty-four-hour summer days of the extreme north. In the Hrafns Saga it says, The weather was thick and stormy… The king looked about and saw no blue sky… then the king took the sunstone and held it up, and then he saw where (the sun) beamed from the stone.

Modern scientists believe they have solved the mystery. The common Iceland spar, a calcite, changes colour and brightness as it is rotated. Initially, scientists thought the Vikings used such crystals to observe polarization patterns and in that way pinpointed the direction of the sun. However, research finally proved that by actively depolarizing the light – at what is called the ‘isotropy point’, where the crystal eliminates all polarization of the light passing through it – it is possible to glimpse a faint, elongated yellow shape (a phenomenon known as Haldingers’s Brush). This phenomenon gives a one to five degree indication of the sun’s location – even when there is absolutely no visible sun to measure direction. Genius!

The sunstone encourages us to trust that there is indeed a way forward, even if we do not see it initially. By trying different approaches, looking at a situation from different perspectives and using our imagination, we may get where we wish to go.”*

Oh this card is the perfect metaphor and the perfect card to follow yesterday’s message. Out of the darkness and into the light. We are asked to shift perspective and look at what is possible here. What are we not seeing? Are we looking through the same lens we always look through, and are we getting all caught up in our old belief systems? Where is the light? How do we find it? How do we access it?

This message is about seeing things differently, switching out the lenses you use to look at problems or issues with ‘new eyes’. There is magic needed here, trust and faith and alchemy too. If you have been struggling, look closely… are you struggling over your struggling? Where is the space for things to change? Are you doing things the same way but expecting different results? Is that not the recipe for insanity?

Take a BIG, DEEP BREATH. Ok, take a few more. Center yourself. Place your feet on the Earth and ground your energies. Take a moment to look around you, really look around you. Be here, in your body, right now.

What needs to shift and change in order for you to move forward? You know exactly what it is, yes, that… what you just thought about, that big scary thing that you are trying to avoid dealing with. That. How can you shed some new light there? How can you see it through a new lens? How can you expand your thinking and beliefs around it and change everything?

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, can you see it? If not, can you feel it?

Look for the hidden sun.

Namaste

Cockatoo ~ Illumination

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Cockatoo ~ Illumination, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower

Cockatoo ~ Illumination: “Some say that in the beginning there was perpetual darkness – a gentle Void, a blanket of nothingness that tenderly swathed the universal plains.

Within this fertile emptiness the Great Mother stirred, as if waking from an eternal slumber. As though trying to recall some distant memory she began to unfold, twisting and churning, dreaming her self into fruition. She began to reach out into the darkness as a massive expanse of nurturing energy that seduced everything it encountered, willingly drawing all into her protective Womb.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo’s dark sister, the Black Cockatoo carries the Genetic Memory of this sacred time and, within her Dreaming, helps us to take control of our life by insisting that we grow at our own pace and learn what we need to know in our own time.

She encourages us to just sit in contemplation and wait for the mysteries of our life to unfold without consciously seeking answers. At the appropriate time, when our mind is still and our heart is at ease, Black Cockatoo passes the torch of illumination to her sister, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.

To have Sulphur-crested Cockatoo appear in your cards today is an indication that you are being primed for clarity to dawn in relation to one or more aspects of your life, and for stability to once again reign supreme.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo offers a time of illumination when truths will be revealed, when energy will flow more easily and obstacles will begin to dissipate.

As a guardian of the East Gate and an emissary of the sun, the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo promises a time of mental clarity, clear vision, enhanced intuition and stability.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

A new moon today and we are invited to find illumination within the dark recesses. We are invited to plant the seeds that will grow to fruition with the next full moon on the ninth of July. Think of the new moon as the fertile emptiness of the womb of the Great Mother. Think of the unfolding, the dreaming into reality. What is it that you wish to create?

The key here is create, and creation takes time and patience. It is a step by step approach, no matter what you are creating. We are not making something out of nothing, we are transforming and transmuting energies. We are pulling from the unmanifest realms and molding form into reality. This takes skill and it takes commitment. It takes wisdom and understanding, and it takes faith.

You will discover something hidden deep within, a revelation of sorts. Your priorities will shift. Your perspective will change. Something that seemed so vitally important will suddenly seem trivial as what is truly close to your hearts desire is revealed. There is an aspect of mystery here, of magic and alchemy.

Think of the lotus flower. The seed is planted deep down in the muddy waters. The plant slowly begins to grow towards the light. As it bursts forth from the darkness it takes in pure light and air. A beautiful flower is born.

Plant the correct seeds, those that start in your heart of hearts. Nurture it, protect it. Allow it to bloom. Watch how you shift and change as illumination comes.

From darkness to light.

Namaste

The Fellowship

Published June 23, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Fellowship, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Card deck, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Fellowship, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Card deck, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney

 The Moral of the Story is: “Friendship and loyalty, reliable and steadfast. Helpful friends and allies lending support. Teamwork.”

The Fellowship: “A rustling in the bushes alerts the Seeker that they are no longer alone and they find they are surrounded as others materialize from the undergrowth. An archer keeps vigilant watch on the periphery of the group, poised ready to spring into action. The Seeker is startled by their presence, but they approach with a gesture of friendship.

A man moves forward from the group and approaches with a sword, ‘I believe this belongs to you; we found it washed up  on the beach, but by  the time we arrived, you had already gone.’

The Seeker thanks him as they accept their sword, once again feeling its power thrum through their fingers, ‘But who are  you?’

The others move closer in to join the conversation. ‘We are seekers here the same as you; we have separate quests, but share a similar purpose and common enemy. Alone we may fail, but together we could find victory through the support of our fellowship.’

Card Definition: “The Fellowship card represents friends and people you can rely upon who are loyal and steadfast; the placement in the spread will indicate the part they will play. This is also a card of teamwork, pooling your diverse strengths and talents to achieve a common goal. It may represent one particular friend or a group of like-minded individuals.

This is normally a card of allies, unless surrounding cards suggest otherwise.”*

~ by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw

When we have done the work on the inside, we will see the results in our external reality. We are working closely with our Team, our angels and guides have been assisting us, giving us signs and messages, guiding us through our obstacles and blockages, and helping us to release illusions and old belief systems. Yup, they really have their work cut out for them! As we redefine who we really are from the inside out, we open our hearts and minds to allow for new people to enter our lives.

Someone new is coming to you now and they will help you to open a new door to possibility. It may be a mentor or friend. It may be a lover or romantic partner. It could even be a new job offer, new co-worker or a new landlord, roomie or tenant. Each situation will be different depending on where you, personally, are at. What you have been wishing and wanting to come to you, will in fact come to you. But you need a little assistance. This new person or people are key. Do not turn down any invitations at this time, you never know who you might meet. Chance encounters are much easier to facilitate if you actually leave  your house!

Do not worry if this does not happen today, although it is absolutely a possibility. Just know that in the near future, you will find your tribe, your group of people who are just like you. One person in particular will stand out. Like the guardian of the gate, they have a lesson for you, and will lead you onward into a new chapter. Trust your intuition and follow your heart.

Namaste

Support

Published June 22, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Support, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Wings of a Dream” Copyright 2017 Kirk Reinert

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Support, from the Oracle Of The Unicorns, by Cordelia Francesca Brabbs, card artwork “Wings of a Dream” Copyright 2017 Kirk Reinert

Support: “Ask for help. Get more rest. Nurture yourself.”

“Feeling tired, burnt our, overwhelmed or overworked is a call to lighten your load and recharge your batteries. Your energy levels are low ind it is proving counterproductive to getting things done or being there for others.

You may feel you have to do everything yourself or do not know who to ask for help. A part of you could be addicted to the adrenaline rush of stress and hustle. You may even feel that it is a sign of weakness to slow down or that you do not deserve to be nurtured.

You have nothing to prove by working yourself too hard or sacrificing yourself by doing everything alone.

This winged horse urges you to ask for help, to get more rest and to be loving to your body. Schedule in non-negotiable time for naps, set boundaries around your work hours and make getting a good night’s sleep a priority. Hire an assistant or other team members for your business. Spend a day at the spa, book in for a massage or other body treatment, or simply take a day off to do nothing. Ask your friends and family for help with your kids or invest in additional childcare or a nanny.

You are worthy of this support. The extra energy you will have as a result will be worth the time and money you spend to give it to yourself.”*

~ By Cordelia Francesca Brabbs

Again we are reminded that we are never alone, and when we are in need of assistance, we must only ask. If you are someone who feels that the only way to get something done is to do it  yourself, this message is especially for you! Remember you have a team of angels and guides who are always with you. They are more than happy to help you in various areas of your life, particularly when you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed. But you have to ask, and you have to allow yourself to receive. Asking and then pushing forward and doing things as you always have done them without receiving the assistance does not help the situation. Ask for help and then make space for that help to come to you. Oh, and don’t forget that when someone comes your way and offers to help you, say YES please!

Step off the treadmill of responsibilities and take a little time for yourself; yes the spa would be fantastic, but not always possible. Go for a long walk, get some fresh air. Take a hot sea salt bath. Create and altar, light a candle, play some music. Meditate; paint; draw; write; do yoga; contemplate a beautiful flower or sunset; count the stars. Breathe deeply. Open your heart and make space for something new.

Your body, mind and spirit will thank you.

Namaste

Synchronicity

Published June 21, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Synchronicity, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Jason Mccreadie

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Synchronicity, from the Angel Prayers Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Jason Mccreadie

Synchronicity: “Thank you Angels I trust your well timed guidance and signs”

General Card Meaning: “There is a reason for some of the experiences you have been going through recently. There are no coincidences in life – everything is perfectly timed by God and the Universe. So, trust that your Angels are sending you divine guidance through the information and people coming into your life at this time. There is positive guidance here for you. Trust the process and the path that is being shown to you, as it will take you forwards one step at a time until you are where you need to be. The Angels of synchronicity are here to guide you and will remind you of their presence at the perfect time.”

Expanded Meaning Of This Card: “There is no such thing as chance. All is guided. If you come across an opportunity that is perfectly timed for you, know that this is the work of Angels. There are no coincidences, only ‘Godincidences’ – God and his angels sending signs and messages through people and situations that seem perfect for what is happening in your life now. If you have been waiting for the perfect time to begin or even end a project, know that there are synchronistic events occurring right now to show you the truth of the situation.”*

~By Kyle Gray

When we are stressed or overwhelmed, stuck in a problem or issue that just won’t seem to budge, we get tunnel vision; we have blinders on. We focus all our attention on that issue, analyzing it over and over, weighing every detail. We go over and over it in our minds, we focus on what we don’t want, or the lack of what we do want. We worry, we fret, we get envious of those who have what we want so very much. It spirals our energies down into a vortex, keeping our energy dense and low. It’s exhausting, demoralizing. As we do this we end up feel isolated, separated and alone. 

But if we can detach from the drama, and rise above it for a new perspective, we can take off those blinders and shift our focus. This is what we are being asked to do now. Look away from what is happening, or not happening that is keeping you stuck. Ask for signs from your Team of angels and guides. Ask for guidance, ask for direction, ask for help and for inspiration. And then acknowledge it when it comes, integrate the guidance. Often we will second guess the signs too! Even when they are so clearly for us we wonder if this is a sign or just a coincidence. It’s a sign. Trust that when you ask for guidance, it will come, and yes, the sign is indeed for you!

Know that you are never alone, you are always loved and supported. Signs and synchronicity is just one confirmation of the love that surrounds you each and every moment of every single day of your life.

Namaste

Anachel ~ Grace

Published June 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Anachel ~ Grace, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Anachel ~ Grace, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Anachel ~ Grace:

“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my Spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”
~ Luke 1:46-47

“Anachel means ‘Grace of God,’ and she is here to offer you the experience of an open heart allowing the love of God to pour in. When she bathes you in a state of ecstasy, every cell in your body sings praises to God, every thought is turned Homeward in thanksgiving.

To receive grace, open your heart and offer yourself to the Eternal. God and the angels want your deep love and surrender. In exchange, you receive a love that is beyond belief until it is felt. One moment in that embrace and you will know you have found Home. You will cease your struggle and surrender, thirsting for more. Grace can catch you unexpectedly from time to time, lingering only a few moments, or enrapture you for days only to vanish again. Its purpose is to awaken your memory of Home and urge you on.

The angels and your Eternal Self are constantly trying to give you whatever assistance you may need, but they cannot penetrate a closed heart. The state of grace allows them to fill you with love, inspiration, wisdom and rapture. Archangel Gabriel could not have visited Mary with the remembrance of her mission if she had not been in a state of grace.

Guilt closes the heart, preventing you from revealing your true identity. Repeated bad experiences form the concept that you can only be the image you believe others expect. When you do not feel safe expressing your feelings, they collect until you are overloaded and can’t feel anymore. Guilt drives you on, never allowing you to rest, always demanding more. Nothing is ever good enough, and you forget the greatness of your truth.

Guilt is not a consciousness but a presence opposing emotional movement, suppressing your flow of energy. Emotional expression increases your ability to vibrate and expands your capacity to receive. Guilt disguises itself by blaming others, making you feel inadequate or wrong, or attacks your body with pain in the neck or head area after you express certain feelings. Make the commitment to recognize and communicate  your true feelings, whatever they are. Feelings are the gift of divine guidance, telling you what is good for you and what is not. The more you are willing to express your truth, the freer you will feel. Your reaction to situations will no longer carry the weight of all past denials and will become appropriate and spontaneous. Light and love will fill the place that guilt has held, and your heart will open to receive Anachel’s wondrous flow of grace.”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

Guilt, shame, resentment are all blockages of energy which often stem from a refusal to take absolute responsibility in our lives. Maybe we have given our power away and feel comfortable in the victim role. Maybe we have suffered trauma, pain or injustice. Or we have had someone or something taken from us. We feel out of control, angry, frustrated. Maybe we acted without thinking, without holding intention for the highest good.

Whatever it is, bring it up and be with it right now. Let it blossom and tell you a story of why; why you really feel the way you feel; why you really acted like you did. Try to understand it fully, without making excuses or sweeping it under the carpet. Breathe it in and hold it for a moment. What is the lesson here? Are you ready to learn it; to accept it with grace and move forward?

Only this will set you free.

When you can acknowledge the emotion and let yourself truly feel it without restraint. When you can see the lesson and accept it. When you can bless and release it forever and move forward on your path.

That is when you will be free.

Namaste

Agate ~ Healthy Body

Published June 19, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Agate ~ Healthy Body, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Agate ~ Healthy Body, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Crystal Colour: “A range and variety of earthly colours consisting of creams, whites, blacks, browns, reds and oranges”

Related Chakras: “Base/Root and Sacral Chakras”

Crystal Medicine: “Agate shines its light into the physical body, awakening and igniting the body’s innate healing wisdom. Profound healing occurs when you align with the Earth’s healing energy. Agate holds the secrets and wisdom to activate this powerful healing process. It is your birthright to know and experience this sacred connection. The medicine of Agate certainly assists in awakening this bond.”

Crystal Meaning: “Restores, grounds and nurtures the energy field. Brings in all the divine qualities of Mother Earth. Reconnects you to the divine energy flow of the planet. Assists in shamanic journeying to meet the plant and tree devas.”

Oracle reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “The devas of Agate have arrived to day to remind you to take more care of your physical body – it is a sacred temple and one of the greatest acts of self-love is to care for it in a balanced, healthy way. You are being urged to tune into your body on a deep level and become aware of what it requires to reach its ultimate health. You may need to go on a detox or address your diet, nutrition, and exercise issues. Set realistic goals and be patient as your body adjusts to this transformation. As you embark on this journey, suppressed emotions may rise to the surface, so be kind to yourself and do things that nurture your transition. Work closely with the devas of Agate to clear away old emotions and motivate yourself to achieve your desired healthy outcome. Be sure to eat the correct foods that allow for a healthy, happy body. Once your body is in balance, the mind, body, and spirit will follow. This card could also be a sign that you have been putting a lot of work and attention into your physical body and this hard work is definitely paying off. You are coming back into alignment with your body and are moving towards your ultimate health.”*

~ Rachelle Charman

There are a thousand different types of Agate, and all of them have slightly different healing properties. Each variety boasts a different colour and those link to the individual chakras on the body, which can give you an indication at a glance for how they can help to heal. When we look at the healing properties of the earth tones, beiges and browns, reds and oranges, these generally work on the three lower chakras, Solar Plexus, Sacral and Root chakras. Agates make great gifts as they are such gentle healers, good for absolutely anyone.

These stones are very calming and grounding, great for someone who’s energy is scattered and great for kids. They assist us in reconnecting to the Earth energies and are perfect to keep in your pocket or under your pillow. One of my favourite ways to cleanse and clear an Agate is in a natural body of water, particularly a small river or stream, shallow enough to place it in and have the water wash over it for a few minutes while I sit down and contemplate the world.

This is also a gentle reminder to put your own health first. Make a commitment to put yourself and your health as a priority. Eat nutritious foods, staying away from pesticides, chemicals, additives and preservatives. Drink plenty of filtered or alkalized water. Get exercise every day. Practice your deep breathing. Incorporate yoga and meditation into your daily routine.

Take care of your body; calm the mind, rejuvenate the spirit.

Namaste
