Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman: Perception ~ Emerald Stone

Perception ~ Emerald Stone: “The heart knows what the eyes cannot see.”

The Legend: “A young princess wanders into her untended garden. As she claws through the decaying undergrowth, she finds a brilliant emerald stone. The stone speaks and tells the princess to open an old wooden door. She enters a dark corridor and the door slams shut. Afraid, she moves forward until her hand falls upom another door. It opens to reveal the same garden she left behind; only now it is beautiful, filled with flowers, butterflies, and birds. It is magnificent and familiar.

Inspiration: “Often our journey brings us full circle, leaving us to wonder why things happen. Emerald Stone teaches us to follow through on whatever is before us. Going back is not an option.

Personal Inquiry: “What in my life needs tending? How good will I allow myself to feel?

Key Ideas: “Transformation in the heart; change in perception; the unknown; promise of a richer experience

Key Words: “Beauty, open heartedness, appreciation”

Meditation:

“Begin to imagine the emerald Stone. When you see it, place it in

your ‘untended garden’. Feel waves of Emerald light filling you with courage.

Emerald Stone may have some thoughts to help you. Listen carefully.

When you are ready, see what has changed.”*

– Tori Hartman

There is so much beautiful symbolism in this card! The Emerald Stone, which represents our heart chakra, at it’s optimal; open and radiating bright white love and green healing light. The butterflies, signs of transformation and change, rebirth and possibility. The little green birds; one in a flight of freedom and one in the branch, seeing things from a higher perspective. There is also the darkness behind the door, which she is turning away from and towards the light, bright, beautiful and abundant garden… her palm open to receive love and abundance. And finally, the purple of her dress, representing intuition and the third eye chakra, the white which represents the crown chakra and the gold, which represents the solar plexis.

This card is telling us to trust our hearts and also our intuition. To trust in ourselves, and know that what our hearts whisper to us is the truth. It speaks of taking flight, of trusting in our own strength and to have an objective perspective. It is telling us to know that our hearts can guide us through the darkness and fear, into the light that awaits us. That we must trust in our path, work to strengthen our connection to our higher selves and that the future is indeed bright and not scary. Finally, it show us that our job is one of action, of having enough faith to listen to our guidance and walk through the door, leaving fear behind once and for all; remaining in a state of allowing. Receptivity is key.

It is time to walk through the door, keeping your focus forward, knowing that you are taken care of. The Universe will provide.

Namaste

Receiving

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Receiving, from the Sacred Geometry For The Visionary Path Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Receiving: “Readiness, Receptivity”

“This is the final card in the Sacred Geometry For The Visionary Path. Embedded in the background of this image is stunning sacred geometry that appeared as a crop formation in 2003. The figure is charged with readiness and receptivity. Her outstretched arms and open hand chakras are expressions of trust, openness and infinite potential. She is a lightning rod and receptor of universal information and infinite wisdom. DNA spirals appear as pillars or antennas in support of her readiness.

This card celebrates the transformation that is taking place in our experience of reality and our willingness to shift from the separation of duality consciousness to the certainty of our connectedness with All That Is.

Sacred Geometry is one way that information and energy are entering conscious at this time. You are gaining a greater appreciation for and are participating in the evolution of consciousness. As you continue your visionary path, allow your awareness and understanding of Sacred Geometry to nurture this evolution. Let this card be a signpost of your willingness to become a beacon of hope and a guiding light for those still caught in the old paradigm of separation. Remain receptive to the messages you are receiving and give thanks for your conscious participation.”

The Receiving Car As Challenger: “When Receiving comes you as challenger, you are reluctant to accept your role in the evolution of consciousness. Ask for guidance and assurance so that you may more fully participate in this important time in human story.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Love is about giving and receiving. It is the perfect infinite cycle. Yet we often stop the cycle by giving and not receiving. We compromise ourselves, isolate ourselves or become people pleasers, but forget that we also need love to keep the cycle balanced. We may not feel worthy of love, and we may make excuses as to why we don’t receive the love we so desire. Maybe we put it off into the future, when we feel that we have attained the perfection necessary to be worthy of this love. We may judge the love available to us as less than, or we may think we are holding out for something better. We may pine and pray and plead and chase the love we wish for, not realizing that all we need do is surrender to it. Accept it with open heart and open mind.

Cherish it, appreciate it, embrace it unconditionally.

Be the Love ~ open your own heart wide and radiate love into every aspect of your life.

The deepest well of love resides within you. Within all of us. Bring this love out and turn it up full blast. See it in everyone. Meet it in everyone. This is Divinity.

There is a much deeper level of love rising up to the surface of your very existence. There is a brand new connection available to you now… if you choose to receive it.

Namaste

Yin

Yin, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Yin, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Yin, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Yin: “The feminine principle of receptivity; letting someone else make the first move; gathering information and taking in cues; the art of conscious allowing.”

The Oracle’s Message: “This is a time of calculated receptivity as you gracefully await what is coming to you, ready to accept it when it appears. Yin does not involve frozen dreams or even resting, but rather consciously allowing things to flow to you, poised to receive the bounty that will be made available to you. It implies sensitivity as you alertly study the actions of others and contemplate how they will affect you and yours. Remember, you must make space for miracles to appear. Be the ‘shaped,’ not the ‘shaper,’ and you will see how quickly your dreams manifest.”

Relationship Message: “Let others take the lead role right now. Your power lies in small gestures, soft awareness and conscious surrender. By yielding the reins, you will find yourself effortlessly moving closer to what you truly desire. Permit others to tell you who they are and who they can be to you by allowing their actions to speak about them. You will be pleasantly surprised.”

Prosperity Message: “This is a time when the most effective action is to allow others to show you the way forward. Observe their behavior and follow their lead. Your desire to push through must take a backseat for now. Collaborate and offer your ideas, rather than dictating what must happen. Let others come to you. It is important that they feel they have power now. Another meaning is about releasing your need to have things in the form you want. How do you want to feel, basking in your success? Now allow the universe to show you the form. Yin is the sign of essence. Things may go more smoothly than you expect.”

Protection Message: “Do you have trouble receiving? You stop the flow of abundance when you continually insist upon being the giver. You can’t always lead, always give, always teach. You must be the student; the open vessel; and the one who receives the gift, gesture, or offer in equal measure. Open up and let love, life, abundance, and Spirit fill you, without demand or expectation. Just receive the bounty that is yours.”*

~ By Colette Baron Reid

Today we are asked to honour the Divine feminine aspect of receptivity. This does not mean taking anybody’s crap! This means that you remain sovereign and respectful of yourself and your boundaries, while you allow them to give back to you in their own way. You are worthy of receiving and it is part of the cycle of energy and Love. Release expectations of what this is supposed to look like and let them take the lead, again, you deserve it!

An unexpected gift is coming your way… easy to say at this time of year, but this will not be from someone you expected, or it will be something that you did not expect. Cherish the heart and soul that went into it. It may be a hand made gift with little or no monetary value, which makes it that much more special as we turn from the material to the spiritual. After all, if someone took the time, effort and thought to make something just for you, is that priceless? Maybe it is something expensive and luxurious, even so, they have spent their hard earned money and put some thought into it, allow yourself to receive with gratitude and an open heart.

If you have been giving and giving and giving, it may be time to allow someone else to help you finish  your tasks before Christmas or the end of the year. Receive the help offered! You do not need to do absolutely everything yourself, ask for help when you need it.

Lastly, a very important reminder to ask for help from your Team when you need it, yes, your angels and guides. Do not forget to enlist their help when you are in over your head, stressed, sad, or overwhelmed… or even to make an extra special day even more joyful! Again, you are worthy of everything they have to offer you and the Universe too. Prayers do not need to be saved for the hardest times, and we can have an open communication and continual conversation with the Divine.

Affirmation: “I receive my blessings with gratitude and joy”

And so it is

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Wise Friend, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Wise Friend: “Nature’s Wisdom”

“Ancient trees are wisdom keepers. They hold within their bark and branch vast libraries of knowledge, history, and earth mysteries. They are fully willing to make these accessible to anyone who makes an effort to tune in to their language.

When you approach a master teacher or revered elder it is customary to offer prayers or to pay a tribute. The old ones love such acknowledgment, and they respond to your recognition of their wisdom by expanding their energy fields and offering shelter. As you sit in this presence, open your inner knowing to a place of receptivity. Relax…

Breathe in a sow rhythmic manner, and listen. Messages may come in a whisper or an exclamation. You may receive words, or likely some simple knowing will occur. Trees are renowned poets and givers of riddles, so do not expect exact answers.

Cultivate a relationship with a tree near your home, one that you can visit often. Let your experience with this wise friend guide you in learning the language of trees. Once you learn this connection, you may find trees talking to you everywhere you go.

If this card comes as a challenger: “Your connection to nature has been severed. It may be that you live in a city of glass, metal, and concrete. In your busy life, you may simply have lost touch with the importance nature holds in maintaining your balance and well-being. Make an effort to reconnect. Find even the smallest natural space and quietly give thanks to the planet and ll of creation for the gifts that fill your life and the ability to see beauty everywhere.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Trees are ancient magical beings; they are an extension of Gaia; the embodiment of our Ancestors. As our wise Elders they should always be treated with reverence and respect. They graciously provide the oxygen we breathe and shelter from the elements. They are sacrificed without thought for the progression of humankind across this beautiful planet. Yet many of us just walk right by them, without a second thought… or a much deserved thank you, or even better: a hug of gratitude and an exchange of Love energy. Yes, I AM a tree hugger, and proud to say that my children are too.

I can see that the trees have an aura of pure white light surrounding each and every one… can you see it? Have you ever tried? It makes a wonderful gazing meditation.

Did you know that Cedar trees will draw unwanted, toxic or negative energy out of our physical bodies for us without hesitation, drawing it down into the Earth for transmutation? All you have to do is place your spine or your right hand against the trunk of the tree – asking for assistance and sending love, light and gratitude in return. Fir trees will help you raise your vibration and your consciousness; their preferred method is to have you align your chakras from the front side of your body along the tree trunk… yes, a hug is perfect for this! Otherwise, your left hand will work too, always mindful of returning the Love. Each tree has an offering; be it wisdom, healing, protecting, uplifting, grounding, transmuting, awakening or enlightening. Some are portals to other realms; those of Elven and Faerie and other elementals. What can you discover about the trees in your geographical area?

In a forest, in stillness, in reverence; there is magic to be found. They are all full of simple and profound magic that they are more than willing to share. And each of us has equal measure of Love and Light to share in return.

Go find your tree and give it a big hug for me. Seek out it’s heartbeat; ask kindly that is share it’s secrets and take time to recognize it’s deep and beautiful Soul. Bless it with Love, surround it with Light and create a lasting relationship that will benefit you both.

Namaste

Remember To Breathe

Remember to Breathe

Remember to Breathe, from the Trust Your Vibes Oracle Card deck, by Sonia Choquette

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Trust Your Vibes Oracle Card deck, by Sonia Choquette: Remember To Breathe

Remember To Breathe: “My spiritual teacher once said, “There are no real emergencies, only opportunities and invitations to grow your soul.” Some situations feel more intense and urgent than others, but all will be more manageable if you remember to breathe properly. Breathing is the gateway to the sixth sense and receiving higher vibrations. When you hold your breath, you deprive yourself of Spirit and enter into a debilitation fear-based state of “fight or flight,” losing all access to 27 higher states of awareness. By remembering to breathe, slowly and deeply, in through the nose and out through the mouth, you remain connected to Divine guidance and higher protection when you feel in danger or threatened. You have been asking to grow on a soul level, and for this reason life may feel more challenging than usual. Take it as a sign of your soul’s growth; and stay cool, calm and connected to your Higher Power through your breath. You do not have to know what you are doing right now, or even have a plan of action. Just continue breathing and remain open in your heart and mind to higher guidance. Take a deep breath right now. Inhale… and exhale. See what I mean?”*

– Sonia Choquette

Breathing is the cornerstone to relaxation, meditation and yogic practice. It is absolutely mandatory to learn how to focus on and control your breath in order to still your mind, which is the bridge to higher consciousness. When we still our minds we are able to achieve a clear connection to the Universe, our angels and guides, the Ascended Masters, the Archangels and our higher selves. As mentioned above, when we slow down our breathing and breathe deeply, it gives our bodies a sense of calm that is simply physiologically impossible when we are breathing rapidly and/or shallowly.

Controlled breathing is a skill, it is something that needs to be mindfully practiced daily, if not several times a day and unfortunately, there is no substitute for taking some time to connect with your breath. There are many classes, meditations and even Youtube videos which will help you to connect with your breath, but simply taking 5-10 minutes, starting once a day and working up from there is a great place to start!

Take a few minutes of uninterrupted time and make yourself comfortable, either sitting or lying down (although sitting may be great to start so you don’t fall asleep as you are working on this skill). Close your eyes, place your feet on the ground, shoulder width apart and your hands on your thighs, palms facing up. Make sure that your back remains straight and you are not slumping, as this will affect your lung capacity. Focus on your breath as you breathe slowly in through your nose and fill your lungs and belly fully; this should take a minimum of 6 seconds. Hold the breath for a couple of seconds and slowly exhale through your mouth. Repeat this pattern, focusing your mind on your breath. When your mind wanders, don’t get discouraged or frustrated, instead just observe it and bring it back to your breath, over and over and over again. Remember, this is a skill and  you will get better with practice, just like anything else we have to master.

Commit to taking 5-10 min, once or twice a day for a minimum of 30 days and see how it changes your life! This will change so many aspects of your body, mind and spirit. Decreasing your stress levels; increasing your patience and focus; aiding with digestion and metabolism, the list is really endless. It would be a great idea to start a breathing journal and record the changes that you notice in yourself during the 30 days, you will be astonished! Combine this with drinking 8 cups of pure water a day and you will be a brand new YOU!

Namaste

Lakshmi ~ Bright Future

Published May 16, 2014 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Lakshmi bright future

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Lakshmi ~ Bright Future

Lakshmi ~ Bright Future: “Stop worrying. Everything is going to be fine.”

Message From Lakshmi: “This is a kind universe, and everyone within it is working in your favor. There are no tests, blocks, or obstacles in your way, except your own projections of fear into your future. Take a moment and hush your mind, quieting it from worries and fears. Feel me brush your brown with a new energy of faith, hope and optimism. These energies fuel your exciting present time, as well as all future moments. Why would you wish darkness upon yourself when light shines all around you? Step into this brightness by lightening your thoughts and feelings. You must stop worrying, as this anxiety squelches the goodness that seeks to find you! Clear your heart of fear, and replace those energies with ones that will serve you and your family instead. Refuse to think of anything, except your bright today and tomorrow, and I promise you that it shall be so.”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You and your loved ones will be protected and provided for. Let go of any “bag-lady” fears about your future. Hold positive thoughts and intentions. Know that you will always have your needs met, now and in the future. Do not worry about money, but instead, visualize abundance.

About Lakshmi (pronounced LOCK-shmee): Lakshmi is a beautiful and benevolent Hindu goddess who brings abundance to those who call upon her. Lakshmi’s connection to lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in the fertility and abundance available to everyone. She is happy to bring supply to you, whether that means money, time, knowledge, or opportunity. Lakshmi works with Ganesh, the elephant-headed deity who is known as the “overcomer of obstacles” Together, they are an unstoppable team that works to help you release fear and accept abundance.”*

Stop right now and take three, slow, deep breaths before you read any further. Doesn’t that feel better? When we are in worry mode, we forget to use all of our lung capacity, we breathe quick, shallow breaths and hunch our shoulders up around our necks! When you can stop and breathe, you can realign your body and your mind simultaneously. This will clear your head and give you a chance to gather your thoughts and focus them where they need to be, rather than staying caught up in the hamster wheel of negative thoughts and self doubt.

Lakshmi is here to tell us that everything is in perfect Divine order, and she is here to support us in our lives right now, providing everything we need to succeed. Our job is to be RECEPTIVE to her abundance, and the way to do this is to focus on raising your vibration through positive thoughts of the present and future, leaving all negativity behind once and for all. When you know with every fibre of your being that everything is going to be fine, then you can live in peace. You can be joyful, feel the harmony of your connection to all.

Trust. Breathe. Know that everything really IS going to be fine…. or even better than fine, it’s up to you to create it, let your imagination go wild!

Namaste

Receptivity

receptivity

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Oracle Of The Mermaids, by Lucy Cavendish: Receptivity

Receptivity ~ The Mermaids Sing: “In this lifetime, you may have learned in some ways that what is offered may have a hook: that there has been bait, and there have been consequences at times to going for what seems to be offered – there has been a trap to it. We mermaids know of this, for we have seen our companions, the beautiful sea creatures, caught on hooks, tempted by what looks like a treat – only to be hauled in and destroyed by the desire to have what they wished for. But there are offerings which are made with open hearts – there are those who hold out their hands with a gift inside it, and all they wish for is the joy of coming into relationship with you – of making you happy, more satisfied, content, secure and joyful. Not all gifts have strings attached – and in this instance, we mermaids, we beings of water, which is the most receptive of elements, are asking for you to open your heart and receive what is being offered. The gift that is before you – be is one of money, love a gift or service – is being offered as it is simply a joy for the being who is offering this to you. In this way, your receptivity makes this a scared act. There are times to tune in to intuition and heed the warning – and there are times to move forward, freely, and learn how to receive. This is one of those times. We mermaids wish for you to have so much more – and at this time, you are safe in accepting, with an open and trusting heart, what is being offered to you. It will be a most blessed exchange. No debt. No hook. No strings. Only joyful acceptance of what is, after all, meant to be yours.

Divination: “An offer of a free service could be yours. A gift of love, time friendship, healing or simply joyful inclusion in a group who is loving and warm and caring could soon be offered to you. Love and good fortune seem to be coming your way, and more easily than it may ever have come before. You have effectively manifested your desires – but instead of joyful acceptance, you are greeting them with some suspicion. Someone loves you deeply and wishes to offer you gifts of their love, or a relative has made a move to help you. At this time, the universe is coming to you with abundance – it is up to you now, to be open to receive. Receptivity is a quality of water… be like the water now… allow the good of the Universe that the Creator of the World is sending you to come to you now. Allow your cup to be filled again, and for your pool to be full. You deserve this. You are free to receive. And there will be no hook.”*

It’s time to drop your guard and trust. There is no alterior motive here; just love. It’s time to  take a leap of faith into the arms of your Angels. It’s so easy to doubt what you can’t see, that is what faith is all about. However, I am here to tell you doubt no more, your angels are with you every moment of every day, sending you endless love and support… you need only to receive it. It’s easy to have faith for short bursts of time giving up the moment you find an obstacle in your way. Keeping doubt and fear on the back burner won’t bring your dreams and desires to you. Let them all go and know, with conviction that abundance surrounds you. Live with gratitude and expectation of the wonders and miracles; ready to receive.

Namaste
