Reflection, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Reflection, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Reflection: “In this first cycle of earthy reality, Starseed has learned the essentials of existence in form:
~The magic of manifesting form
~Higher self and the inherent wisdom we bring through our karmic record
~The flow of energy in all its boundless expression
~The importance of structure in the creative stream
~Spiritual guidance
~The giving of one’s self to love
~The power of right mind over the senses
~The meaning of true strength

At the end of this first cycle (I-IX), it is time to rest and reflect on all that has been learned. It is time to ruminate on the wisdom of Starseed’s passage thus far.

To achieve the silence to contemplate such important lessons, Starseed is guided to go into a sort of hermitage, far from the distraction of people and events, and back to the quiet of nature, where the greatest truths lie.

At a time when human kind is bombarded with all manner of noise and distraction via our personal interactions, technology, and media, the path of the hermit can be the remedy to restoring peace in the mind and soul.

Associated with Reflection are the words hermitage, silence, contemplation, meditation, stillness, and peace.

When Reflection appears in a reading, the querent might consider the following: ‘Am I able to silence my mind and reflect on the situation at hand? How am I quieting my mind to contemplate the higher truth? Am I able to be still and listen to my inner voice? Do I need to get away, to find the guidance I need in the situation? Have I matured from what I have learned? How am I behaving like a hermit to those who seek my attention or guidance?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alys Bartha

The transformation you are going through may create some friction in your life. You may find that you are no longer in alignment with certain relationships, occupations or lifestyle choices. Things that once appealed to you no longer hold your attention, and truths that you may have chosen to ignore are now too glaringly obvious.

This can cause fear and discomfort. It can cause people who are close to you to object. It may cause judgment and it may even cause rejection. Try not to take it to heart, it is all part of the process.

It is time to reflect back on whether there were times in the recent past that you saw evidence that you had outgrown a particular situation and yet felt unable to deal with it. Maybe you were afraid to hurt someone; or you were afraid your financial situation wasn’t strong enough for changes to be made. Maybe you felt obligated to someone or something. Or maybe you just chose to ignore it out of fear of the new, the unknown.

But now you do know it, and this knowing comes from deep within. There is no hiding from this knowledge. There is only opportunity for change.

Use the reflection to see the truth. Use it to make positive changes; necessary changes.

Use it to change your external world to match your internal world.

Namaste

Two of Flames

Two of Flames, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Two of Flames, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Two of Flames: “The Two of Flames is about recognizing more than one option and determining the best way to move the creative flow forward, for the good of the one and the all – and making it manifest on Earth.

From the perspective of one’s individual process, it speaks to the querent of choosing the right path that will lead to dominion and materialization of the creative, inspired process. To the many inspired spirit warriors and light workers who have come to take part in the Earth in transition, it also illustrates how the Starseed intention to serve as a leader or guide at this time will require reflection, discernment, and an understanding of how focused intent is the tool of leadership, which brings spirit into manifestation.

How do you decide which of your inspired ideas and processes is most significant at this time? Do you know how to ground your passion and dreams and manifest them? Are you still searching for your mission, unsure which way to walk your path? Do you have the substance to lead others with the light of your spirit and wisdom?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

This card is about truth. Finding and living your truth to the best of your ability; and working to hone that ability over time. Clarity is required; what is it that you wish to manifest, and is it held by your Higher Self to be for the Highest Good of All? Then this is the way forward.

Letting go of the material realm in favour of a spiritual quest. Releasing the bonds put upon us by society; those of accumulation, of consumption and of hierarchy. Releasing the fears of failure and judgment if we don’t fit in to the ‘normal’ ways of Being in the world. Releasing doubts of whether we can be successful in life if we chose the path our heart whispers to us is the right path, but society deems not.

Balancing responsibility and obligation with passion and dedication to our true Soul path. Despite the fact that it makes those closest to us uncomfortable. Despite the chaos going on around us.

Listening to our Higher Self for guidance instead of asking the opinions of others, who may project their own fears upon us and inadvertently or purposefully sidetrack us. Following our intuition and instincts each and every moment of each and every day. Watching for signs, messages, symbols in our awake time and our dreaming. This is how you decide which direction to take.

Surrounding yourself with nature. Surrounding yourself with those you can trust; your soul group of supportive and like minded people. Releasing the old, the negative and the toxic with love and compassion, holding space in your heart for their healing. Coming together with those who can offer their unconditional love and acceptance.

Take it slowly, mindfully. But take action. In your heart of hearts, you know what you must do.

Namaste

~ By Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Velantine

Is your spiritual life putting pressure on you lately? All this trying to think positively and raising your vibration, yet you still have bad days, and feel fear, and try not to judge and try your best to be accepting and loving? Yup, you are still human. Phew!

Take a few deep breaths and give yourself a break. The fact is, you are working on yourself, and while you may not have reached enlightened perfection and mastered hovering while in lotus posture, you are still doing amazing things! You have raised your vibration. You have opened your heart. You have activated  your  chakras. You are an amazing work in progress. Accept that. Breathe it in. Give yourself a pat on the back. Well done! You, my friend, are waking up and you are exactly where you need to be, right here, right now. How does that feel?

Give yourself a little break from it all today. Your only job is to smile and give out as many hugs as you can. No asking for advice, it’s all inside you. Instead, be someone else’s sounding board, be there for someone else who needs to know that they, also are on the right path. Take a sea salt bath. Play with your crystals. Go for an energy healing session. Do some yoga. Go for a walk. Get outside and breath some fresh air. Feel the sunshine on your face.

Today? Just be You. You are amazing at that. It’s your specialty. And remember: the world would not be the same without the gift of your beautiful presence.

Namaste

Deliverance

Published October 11, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance: “The time of Deliverance is captured best in the image of a thunderstorm. As in nature, when there has been a long dry spell, and thunderheads are gathering on the horizon, the time for deliverance is at hand. Before a storm breaks, the accumulation of energy and tension can build to a point where it feels almost unbearable. Then, the sudden release of pent up energy in lightening and thunder delivers the earth from the oppressive conditions in the gusts of wind and cooling rains.

Awareness and grounding are especially needed at ta time like this, lest euphoria. The small, ordinary things of life still need careful and ongoing attention – and taking care of business is the best preventative medicine to ward off the let-down that can often follow such a high.

That is not to say it is inappropriate to rejoice or feel unburdened now – rather, enjoy and keep your feet on the ground. When a thunderstorm has passed, there is an uncommon freshness and sense of renewal in the air… and there is often a fair amount of debris on the ground that needs sorting through and cleaning up. It is vital now to identify and clear away any destructive thoughts or actions that might have created the heavy atmosphere that lead up to the storm. Taking time for reflection will strengthen your ability to learn from your actions and help you to gain the clarity not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. No matter what the sources of past tensions, it is now possible to observe them with less passion and greater equanimity. And it is from this detached perspective that you can best understand what steps you need to take to move forward.

A word of caution: ‘detachment’ is cool, free from emotional storms and drama, but it is not cold and unfeeling. In the aftermath of all the storms and interplay of energies, in life, it is always important to maintain a spirit of open-heartedness and compassion. Forgiveness is a healing force, and it is just as important to forgive ourselves as it is to forgive others. In fact, the two often go together. By letting go of the past and its turmoil, you will clear the ground for the lessons of Deliverance to take firm root in the soil and grow into a deeper and more profound liberation of the spirit.

If any hurts or misunderstandings remain unaddressed in the current situation, it is time to acknowledge them, do whatever is possible to heal the wounds or clear up the misunderstandings, and move on. There is a window of opportunity now to move quickly and decisively into a new order of things, and this is best accomplished with heartfelt gratitude for all the lessons learned.”

~ Ma Deva Padma

If you have recently gained perspective and walked away from a person, job or any situation which no longer served your highest good, congratulations for your courageousness. It is imperative however, that you look closely at the feelings associated with this particular person or situation. Is there any lingering hurt, negativity or resentment? Are any grudges being held against another person? Have you looked deep within to find compassion and forgiveness? It is time. This is how the healing will commence. This is the bridge to the next step in your journey.

Detach from the rawness and drama of the emotions associated with what is happening now, or has recently happened. Find a way to forgive both yourself and anyone else involved. Make peace with this situation and the outcome, even if it is uncomfortable now.

Focus on the healing process rather than the outcome, this is the deliverance you seek. Know that when you are loving, no matter what happened, and you see the lesson, you can set yourself free.

It is time to be truly free.

And so it is

Namaste

Enlightenment ~ Topaz

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Enlightenment, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman, Illustrated by Gretchen Raishch-Baskin

Enlightenment ~ Topaz: “If I seek peace, I must embrace my fears”

The Legend: “Topaz is a renowned spiritual teacher. People travel to hear his wisdom. He is journeying up a mountain to seek private counsel with the Great Servant when a young boy stops him. The boy asks, “If enlightenment is to be found in my own mind, how do I get there?” The moment before he disappears into the mist, Topaz replies “Through your fears.”

Inspiration: “At this time your journey is more important than you destination. Remember, if you face your fear, you will grow stronger. Relief awaits.”

Personal Inquiry: “My thoughts always drive my choices. How can I use my thoughts to heal myself?”

Key Ideas: “Path to enlightenment; the reluctant sage; taking time alone to connect; trusting your intuition; needing solitude; time for reflection.”

Key Words: “Support, Courage, Confidence”

Meditation: “Write down three fears, then close your eyes. Imagine these fears staying with you always. Then imagine them, one by one, walking in faith alongside  you. Stride through the Garden of Fear and allow them to sty behind. What is more painful, keeping your fears or releasing them? The choice is yours.”*

~ By Tori Hartman

Have you ever stopped to ponder the saying “There is nothing to fear except fear itself”? Have you ever stopped to wonder if fear is like a habit that we have taken on? One that stops us from moving forward, like most bad habits do; one that keeps us from getting enough sleep, wrecks our peace of mind, and generally causes more trouble than it’s worth?

How many times have you been forced to live through your worse fears coming to fruition? And yet, here you are, reading this, so I am going to assume you survived it and are here to tell the tale. So my question to you is: Did worrying a whole lot about it or staying frozen in fear help you when you were in the thick of it? Did it prevent you from having to live through each moment? Or could you have faced it regardless of all that extra energy you put out on it. Have you ever wondered if maybe it would actually have been nice to just go through it the one time, instead of all those other times in your head first?

I know it might be tempting fate to ask “What’s the worst that can happen” so let’s just start out by scratching that one, like forever. How about asking the Universe “What is the absolute best outcome for everyone involved here in this situation?” and go from there? Why be conditioned to always expect the worst? Maybe (well, definitely but since we are releasing fears I don’t want to scare anyone!!) if we put it out there that things could go totally off the rails… they will. And maybe, if we release all that limiting thinking and decide to project the best possible outcome for the highest good of all, we can become a magnet to that instead.

Go ahead and practice. Start with the little stuff and work up from there. Try smiling and laughing and dancing while you do it, it speeds up the process and gets those amazing results pouring in just a little bit faster.

And so it is… not scary at all

Namaste

Rings Of Time

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rings Of Time, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

“Divine timing is granted to us as a gift. Sometimes if we want to be “further ahead” than where we are, that gift can seem like a restriction rather than a generous holding. Much like traffic that moves systematically so that not only one car, but many can reach their destination according to a greater harmony and alignment, we are like individual cars that must sometimes accept red light, and at other times can flow swiftly through many green lights. It is just this way, this systematic flow of divine energy through human manifestation. Your spiritual maturation is happening perfectly, there is no need to bother yourself about timing. When doors open, walk through, when there appear to be no such openings, rest and reflect. The rings of time serve you, beloved.

This oracle brings you a message that the Divine is completely responsible for the timing of every event, opportunity and happening of grace in your life. All you need to do is live your life. Everything else is taken care of for you now. This applies to all of your plans, and the unfolding of all of y our relationships. Let it all breathe and let the divine happen as it will.”

“There is a beautiful silence now

As I hold your hands

And listen to your eyes

Across a span of moments called time

There are no words that say as much

Nor walls that could confine

The wings of our feelings

Or the rhythm of our eyes.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild, and Richard Cohn

We cannot hasten the harvest, nor can we encourage the flowers to bloom faster or the river to flow faster; some things are just beyond our control, whether we like it or not! This present situation is just that; Divine Timing has been set into motion and all we can do is quite literally go with the flow. Everything is in Divine perfect order; everyone is right where they should be. All we can do is surrender the reins with complete faith and trust that things will all work out in the end. This, or something better. That is our mantra.

And as we all know, a watched pot never seems to boil. So it’s a good time to set your focus elsewhere for a bit. Tie up loose ends; take a little break; do something relaxing that you enjoy; catch up with an old friend; spend the day with your kids; get outside for some fresh air and rejuvenation. Know that all the effort you  have put in with your thoughts and actions has created momentum. Things are being created, manifestation is underway, people are on their way to you now.

But you just can’t rush it. Trust is key.

Do what you love to do; time will fly by faster. Pamper yourself; you deserve it. Treat this as a little reprieve, the calm before the storm. Use this time for you. Once things get going, you may not have as much time to yourself as you would like!

Namaste

Reflection

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Reflection, from the Little Wings Oracle Card deck, by Sonia Kallio

Reflection: “To reflect upon the world is to reflect upon yourself.

You have been using the physical world to prove to yourself that you are separate from all Creation. The world you see is primarily the reflection of that thought.

Look around you. What can you see that is eternal? Is there anything in the world that shows you the Truth of your eternal nature?

Seeing the Truth is but a choice away.

Love is reflected to you everywhere; however, it requires you to see differently. To do so, gently bring your awareness to the present moment and observe what you see without engaging the thoughts or commentary of the mind.

In this way, by seeing the world through fresh and innocent eyes, you come to recognize that Love is everywhere. And this is when you see a true reflection of your Self.”*

~ by Sonia Kallio

As above; so below. As within; so without. We are an extension of the Divine, experiencing life on this physical plane of reality. We come here to experience joy and passion through all of our senses; indulging in the colours, fragrances, tactile feelings and amazing tastes that surround us in every breathing moment. The most delicious of all of these experiences come from our interaction with Mother Gaia herself, and all of her miraculous creations, as well as the Cosmos itself. There is nothing more vibrantly beautiful than one of her flowers, trees, plants or creatures (yes, including us!) There is nothing more profound than connecting to our great Sun, Moon, stars and planets.

But we forgot. We think we are simply victims of circumstance. We get muddled in the thick density of chaos and drama fed to us by those who may not have our highest good in mind. We spend so much time washed away by  lower density emotions such as fear and doubt that we remain blinded to our incredible powers of co-creation with the Universe. We forget our own deep magic and we look outside ourselves for validation, assistance and wisdom. We start to believe that we need “more” in order to be truly happy, fulfilled. We are taught that peace comes from the security of material possessions and that we must feel the need to compete with others in order to prove ourselves worthy. That we must protect what is ours, so that it cannot be taken away from us. That there may not be enough to go around.

But what if all that is wrong? What if  a shift in perception is all it would take to lead us to the peace, joy and fulfillment that we so desire? What if it is as simple as seeing in ourselves and  in all other beings, the Divine Light that shines from within us all?

The connection of the Divine that weaves us all together is where the magic lies.

Your deep inner beauty is a reflection of the Universe.

To expand your consciousness, see this beauty first in yourself.

Namaste

Dee
