Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hearth, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Hearth: “Happiness in our hearts and homes.”

“The ancient Romans believed that every home had a heart and it was the hearth. Where the fire burned, the family gathered for sustenance, communication and protection. This concept was so important to the culture that there was a huge city hearth – the Vestal temple – where the fire of the home goddess, Vesta, burned forever without ever going out. This sacred flame was protected by the soldiers with their very lives should there be an invasion.

The place where the Goddess Vesta was honoured within every ordinary home was also the hearth, and it is where women prepared food and cooked. Some of the food was always offered back into the fire as an offering to Vesta for her blessing and protection. Often husbands were sent away on military duty for years on end and their wives at home were not just expected to keep the home and often the business running, but to wait for their husbands faithfully until their return. They prayed to Vesta to ensure their family members’ return and to keep the fires of love stoked. The saying: “Keep the home fires burning” was inspired by this practice.

Should the Hearth card appear in your divination, you are beings asked to look to your idea of what home and family is for you. Take the time to build up your ‘love’ fire and have it burning brightly. Make your relationships a priority. If there is conflict within your home and family, it is time to take concrete steps to address the issue for good. If you or a member of your family is away from home due to travel or work, know that protection is being given.”*

Your family may not be your flesh and blood; they may be those who have shown their loyalty and support to you through your life experiences and given you warmth, caring and love when you needed it most. Maybe these are your relatives, and maybe not, but regardless they are your true soul family, your tribe. These are the people to surround yourself with now. This is where your true home lies; as the saying goes, home truly is where the heart is.

We are so wrapped up in our lives; our responsibilities, our obligations. Bills to pay, places to get to, so much work to do it can seem never ending. So many distractions… the theme of late. Our smart phones, computers, tv’s, games and social media running our lives. The media toying with our emotions. Presidents of countries threatening each other. People killing each other. So many things to worry about.

So what can we do about all this?

We can create a cocoon of loving support and climb right in it. We can spend time with people in person… organically they call it now. You know, when you are actually in the same room with someone, speaking to them, looking into their eyes? Phone nowhere in site ideally of course. Those who love you for you. Those who make you laugh. Those who make you feel warm and fuzzy. Those who listen when you talk and hold space for where you are at. You know who they are, and if you do not, then it is time to find them.

Here in Canada it is Thanksgiving and I am grateful to have my family, healthy and happy; those of my own flesh and those who have adopted me along the way. There is always room for more love, more family, new friends and new love.

What are you grateful for today?

Hestia ~ Home

Hestia ~ Home

The Myth: “Hestia is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. Her name means hearth, the sacred fire, and Hestia is the virgin goddess of the sacred hearth. The hearth was at the center of families and tribes. Transferring fire from one sacred hearth to another represented continuing heredity.”

The Message: “This card is all about the warmth and the spirit of the home. It indicates that both home and family are especially important at this time.

Our families are not just our blood relatives, but they are the people who care for and nurture us in our lives and the people for whom we deeply love and care. Our connection to family reminds us of who we are and brings us back to our roots both culturally and personally, giving us a sense of continuity, of being a part of something greater than ourselves. Home is this feeling.

Home is also the ground we create for ourselves: a place of security, peace, and warmth. we rejuvenate ourselves in this place so that we may have the energy to operate in the world.

This is a time for connecting to the nourishing energy of home and family. You can be anywhere in the world to do this; all you need to do is connect to the space within yourself that allows you to feel strong, safe, and warm.

This is a time for creating the right ‘home’ space for yourself. If you feel that your home is contaminated, then you must do whatever is necessary to cleanse it. You cannot hope to operate from a clear space within your life or the world unless you are operating from a clear space within yourself and your home. If you have destructive personalities around you, you must create boundaries and remove these people from your immediate space.

This is also a time to connect to those who are your true heart’s family, to those who love you and remind you of who you truly are.”*

I have just recently had my home, myself and my children cleared by a friend of mine who’s life purpose is to assist in clearing lower vibrational and dense energies from spaces, people, chakras, etc. I am amazed at the difference this has made to our family dynamics (if you are interested in his services, please contact Leith at Rainbow Spiral Energy Spacekeeper directly). I was also inspired to clean and clear out all the old, take a few things down off the walls, donate things that we no longer need. In combination, it has made an enormous difference to generally improve the chi of the space, I feel fantastic and the kids have noticed a difference too. 

This is a great time to look at anything in your living space that does not hold a positive or higher vibrational energy. Get rid of anything that does not serve a purpose and just clutters up the space. It is also time to look closely at relationships and assess if there is anyone in your life right now who is doing more harm than good. All of these things have an effect on us, body, mind and spirit. If you are not sure, look for signs: does an object, space or person make you feel drained, frustrated, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you feel repelled or like you should flee the situation? Do you feel that you are being used or your energy is being sucked away? All these are signs that there is unhealthy or toxic energy in your presence.

It is also important to create boundaries with people who ask too much of you. Learn to say no, learn to walk away and learn that you are not here to “fix” someone, you can support them, but you are not responsible for their behaviour or their choices, (unless they are dependents such as disabled, elderly or small children and need your care and assistance of course). You can guide people or advise them, but you cannot compromise yourself for them. Creating healthy boundaries allows people to learn the lessons they are meant to learn in their own time. It also allows (or forces) them to take responsibility for their own behaviour. And you for yours.

Gebo

Published May 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Gebo, from the Viking Oracle, By Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gebo, from the Viking Oracle, By Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Gebo: “Seek equality in your relationships, especially intimate relationships. Avoid people pleasing and co-dependence. Family and work harmony is paramount. You will be acknowledged for your fine work and your good deeds. A gift will be matched. There is natural justice that runs through life ~ this will be upheld.”

“We agree to union,
One that is sacred and equal,
Side by side.
A gift is given,
Circles back in kind.
Harmony is won,
Justice is invited.
I am Gebo.”

“According to Viking lore, marriages and other unions were created under vows made to the gods. The meeting of souls in these sacred unions was not taken lightly. There were expectations on both sides. Harmony in marriage, equality in provisionary duties and  parity in kinship roles all were valued by the Norse people. Even the gods were called upon to provide guidance and protection in return for the worship, sacrifice and honour they received.

While as modern people, we may not relate completely to the ethical standards of the Vikings, we must understand that, in lieu of sophisticated court systems, they held to a process of justice and judgment that was weighted on the severity of the transgression. Gebo (pronounced “gay-boo”) reflects this balance. What was ‘given’ to someone, be it positive or negative, was expected to be returned. So, if a host received their guest with hospitality, providing them with food, drink, shelter and safety, all this was given with the expectation that the host would receive equal hospitality one day. Or, at the very least, that their guess would respond by being trustworthy. On the other hand, if someone acted with cunning and trickery or destroyed another’s property, this too would be repaid in kind.

Gebo also asks us to heed the laws of nature and find harmony with them. If we humans work as a part of nature not apart from nature, there are countless benefits to be had, not the least being improvements in our own mental and physical health and the sustainability of our planetary resources.”

Gebo as Challenger: “Remember, regarding the nature of gifts, if the gift is not of good intent, this will be returned in kind to you. There may be falsity in someone’s generosity. Justice will be done. If you have been on the side of injustice, justice will be done and wrongs righted.”

Element: Air

~ By Stacey Demarco

We will heal collectively when we reach the perfection of balance and harmony between the masculine and feminine energies. In order to find this balance, we must look within ourselves and to our closest relationship dynamics.

Who holds the power? Is it an even give and take, or is someone running the show? Have you given your power over to another? If you are unsure about this, look at how you feel when you interact. Is there resentment present? Even fear? Is there compromise on one persons behalf that is not matched by the other? Are decisions made in order to please or appease someone rather than for the greatest good of all involved? This is when the scales are out of balance.

The Divine Feminine is the receptive, creative, feeling and nurturing energy. The Divine Masculine is the action, the protection, the thinking, the focused intention and direction. When these two come together within each of us, as they should, balance is attained. When they are unbalanced within an individual it will be mirrored back to them within a relationship; that is often when things start to go sideways. That is where the lesson lies.

If you see yourself as all Feminine or all Masculine without much to connect these two energies, that is where your inner work starts. When you can balance these within yourself, you can balance them outside too. Perfect Yin and Yang, the circle complete. When we each face up to what is going on with us internally, we can heal and move forward, whole, empowered and sovereign beings.

As we do this, balance and harmony are achieved. It starts with each one of us; we can heal the collective.

Ten Of Cups

Published May 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ten Of Cups, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ten Of Cups, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Ten Of Cups: “The spiky scent of lavender lightly veils the deeper, sweeter notes of rose. Their essence is carried into the air on spirals of steam. Underneath, the earthy, rich smell of frankincense fills in the empty space. The air is permeated with peace and love and promise.

Calling on the spirits of the plants, which she harvested with her own devoted hands and blended together in water gathered from her own blessed spring, she invites them into her life. She sings their songs, and as they release their magic, they sing with her. In that moment, powerful magic is present.

Old, even for a faery, she has gathered deep wisdom and much experience and thus can weave her spell perfectly. She knows what is important, what is the best use of these gifts of nature. With practiced motions, she moves her hands over the steam, deftly mingling the energies to summon precious blessings for her loved ones; a peaceful, compassionate countenance; deep, intimate connections with others; and commitment and honor.”

Divinatory Meaning For Ten Of Cups: “Life is full of moments of love and connection. Some are fleeting. Some stand the test of time. Some are effervescent. Some are deep and rich. When they mingle together in one life, the variety creates a full existence, a complex tapestry that is extraordinarily beautiful. The Ten Of Cups promises such an experience. But it is not just a card of receiving. It is also a card of wisdom and experience, bringing with it the knowledge and ability to nurture such relationships in your life and in the lives of those around you. This card marks a time to create these ties as well as to celebrate them.”*

~ By Julia Jeffrey

This card represents a coming together. It also tells of the tiny moments that make up an abundant life; those lazy afternoons spent with family in the back yard, or a walk with a friend. It is a reminder that there is so much to be grateful for that is untangible, fleeting and precious. A smile or hug from a loved one. A cup of tea and a heart to heart visit. Holding hands. Gazing into someone’s eyes. Admiring the deep blue of the sky or the sea. Feeling your toes in the sand or the wind in your hair. Doing what you love to do, mindfully, without a rush.

Feeling love in your heart, filling it right up to the brim and letting it spill over.

That is abundance.

Connect today. Make it a little more special. Reach out. Get outside. Surprise someone with a call or a hug or a smile. Give of yourself and pay it forward.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Yang, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid, artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Essential Card Meaning: “The masculine principle of movement and creative activity; the power to make things happen; taking action.”

The Oracle’s Message: “Yang represents the power of action, the energies that propel the world forward, and manifesting thought and desire into concrete form. Now is the perfect time to act, for you can easily build momentum and make headway. What you want will come to fruition if you proceed confidently. This card signifies new life and is a sure sign that obstacles have been overcome. There is no reason to hesitate. You are the shaper of your destiny now.”

Relationship Message: “Circumstances are supporting action on your part. It is ok to make the first move. Trust that you will quickly know where you stand. In matters of the heart, there is movement toward your highest good, so go forth with assurance. Passion is in the air, and now is the time to dance to the tune of love. Take the lead.”

Prosperity Message: “Projects, partnerships, and all matters relating to your business are out of the obstacle phase and on to the ‘make it happen’ phase! Now is the time to stake your claim and get things done. While you can expect to be busier than usual, this card tells you that you have all the energy and vitality you need to accomplish your goals. Abundance is waiting for you to claim it.”

Protection Message: “Be mindful of the tendency toward impulsive action, overconfidence, and aggressive behaviour. Think before you act, lest you find yourself in a situation that will lead to uncomfortable consequences. Be sure you really want what you are chasing after, because you might be sorry when you get it. The appearance of this card is not cause for fear, for life is all about learning lessons. Practice temperance, diplomacy, and thoughtful consideration before making a move.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Move forward fearlessly towards that which you wish to create. Take action now…. the hitch? Do it with a plan in place. Take steps to make it happen, with an idea of where you are going and why. And most importantly, always holding intention that it be for the Highest Good Of All involved.

When you set your intention to be for the highest good, you no longer have to worry that you will be stepping others or hurting those you love as you move forward, for you do so with an open heart. You take action but there is an aspect also of surrender and trust. There is faith that you are not going it alone, but you are co-creating with Source. This is your insurance plan; knowing that the Universe has your back. Knowing that when you move forward with receptivity and accept what is yours, there is no taking it away from another. There is always more than enough to go around. There is no competition, there is no comparing, there is no judgment. Only acceptance and Love.

Use the energy of the Divine Masculine to assist you in harnessing the power of creative force and action. Balance it with the Divine Feminine to do it all in a harmonious and non-agressive way. Stand tall in your power, knowing that what you are about to do is going to make a difference; in the most positive and amazing way.

Namaste

The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies

Published December 14, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies: “Love given, Love received, Metaphorical open-heart surgery”

“Pixie kisses are not chocolate like the well-known Hershey’s Kisses, but the Pixies claim that they are a whole lot sweeter and don’t do anything dreadful to your teeth. However, if the pixies have been munching on faery chocolate, some pixie kisses give people freckles. As Brian wrote, “The pixies say that there cannot be too much kissing! A faery kiss is a blessing indeed. ” Pay attention when you feel a faery touch on your cheek or lips. Pixie kisses (in fact, all faery kisses) are to be noticed and savoured. If you do notice, you will find yourself smiling without meaning to, and feel a surge of warmth swell in your heart.

This faery, Morna, is the queen of love – all kinds of love: brotherly, sisterly, parental, friendly, unconditional or conditional, either or both. She tells us, “it takes perfect people to have a perfect love. But we, imperfect as we all are, may have many loves – each one perfect for who we are and for what we need now. These loves may not feel perfect, they may not look perfect from the outside, but they fit us now. If we don’t like them” – she shrugs – “then we need to change ourselves so that a different kind of perfection fits us.”

Here we see Morna in her role as heart surgeon, using the power of love to help us to open our hearts when we have closed them out of fear, helping us to expand and become more of what we have the potential to be. Yes, it is true – having an open heart, being willing to love and be loved, makes us vulnerable to loss and grief. But Morna assures me (and I believe her) that once a heart is truly and fully open, even the deepest grief becomes bittersweet, like dark chocolate, and there is no pain that is not balanced by the greater joy of love.

The feeling of giving love is what makes us feel good. What keeps us from enjoying it fully is our desires to won others and to have them constantly “prove” our importance to them. Such proof is impossible. However, this kind of conditional and self-limited love is part of how we learn about real love. If ever you hear yourself asking, “Do you really love me?” or saying I don’t think you really love me,” then you know that the love you are giving to the other is conditional and limited.

Morna would like to help us learn to love others without conditions, and she also would like us to learn to love while still staying properly centered within ourselves. It is important for us not to lose ourselves in others and let their desires become ours while losing sight of what we need for fulfillment in our own lives. In the long run ( or even in the not-so-very-long run) that never works out. We only think we know what others want and need, and sooner or later we get it disastrously wrong – usually by thinking we know what they ought to need. We are all learning about love, and in the process of learning, we all act as teachers for each other. Ram Dass Said: “The karma of relationships is the hardest karma there is.”

“Believe it!” Morna advises. And this is true, no matter what the relationship is. But for all that, love in its purest sense is the fast track to self-realization and enlightenment. the Wild Thing at the top of the picture is filled with bliss and is longing to cuddle its way to enlightenment. Remember, everything  and everyone in Faery glows with its own light. So do we. Much of that light is the glow of love. Remembering that is important.

Opening our hearts more widely to the giving and receiving of love evokes the well-kissed Faery within.”

Starter Reading: “Oh, wow! What can I say here? Love, sweet love. Accept it, burnish it up, add to it and pass it on.

The presence of  The Faery Who Was Kissed By The Pixies suggests giving and receiving love and intimacy in any of a wide variety of relationships. She gives notice that this is a time to open and heal our hearts. Different aspects of life may well be flowing happily together, healing separations and hurts from the past. Bonding may take place and deep feeling emerge. Changes for the better may occur in all aspects of life, but especially in relationships, which may be deepening and becoming richer. You may be experiencing love therapy for opening the heart as new relationships begin and old ones develop. Enjoy!”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “When we block love, obviously we refuse to give or receive it. An interesting thing here is that love is an energy, an aspect of the life force, and it flows through us whether we admit it or not. The unhappy souls who refuse to acknowledge it still have it within them, ignored, denied. Another way we block love is to become the kind of people-pleaser who wants to do everything for others but wont’ let them give in return.

The twisted energy of love shows up as jealousy, possessiveness, attention-seeking, and demanding behaviour. It is focused on getting rather than giving and results in unhappiness rather than happiness. It is also based on the entirely false idea that there is not enough love in the world for everyone to have as much as they need. Another twist is believing that it is up to others to make us happy, when really this is our own responsibility.

One of the worst things we can do is to deny love – to pretend we feel it when we don’t and to pretend we don’t when we do. Another is to try to destroy love between others by any means for any reason whatsoever. And the worst of all is taking advantage of the love of others to betray them.”

“Faeries are both luminous and illuminating.” ~ Brian Froud

~ By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Love. Love. Love. Are you ready for it? Are you ready to give and to receive? What does love mean to you? Do you have expectations of what it will look like, how it will feel, how it will be balanced between two souls? Have you ever experienced a balanced and harmonious realationship… do you feel worthy of receiving love?

Part of the shift in our consiousness is an opening, an awakening and an aligning of our Heart and Higher Heart Charkas. This is where we must expand, shine forth from and receive the Love that is on offer. Universal Divine Love, family love, relationship love, self love, Unconditional Love… it all passes through these portals in our bodies. When we trust, surrender and release expectation, we allow what is available to us to flood us, fill us up and spill over, radiating out. This is true beauty. This is Divine and sacred connection. This is where the magic lies.

Release any fear around the concept of love; any feelings of unworthiness, of pain or trauma or disillusion. Let it all go. Open yourself to embrace something brand new, powerful, healing and profound.

I welcome the powerful energy of Love into every area of my life now.

And so it is

Namaste

Companionship

Published November 29, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Companionship, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Companionship, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

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

Companionship: “The focus now is on human relationships – how each person can best realize his or her individual potential within a love relationship, a family, or the larger community, and how a gathering of individuals can come together and function as a harmonious whole.

Working together toward common goals strengthens the connections between people and enriches the larger community. There is a special warmth that comes from combining forces, or gathering together with others of like mind. It is easier to withstand hardship with the support of the community, and the joyful moments of life are even sweeter when they can be celebrated with friends. Put quite simply, we need one another. Our individual qualities are uniquely ours, but they are polished and refined through interaction with others.

The willingness to be open with unequivocal respect for each individual’s uniqueness is the lubricant that keeps relationships running smoothly. A deep trust gradually develops between those who share a common vision and work respectfully side by side toward its realization. No matter how diverse our backgrounds may be, when we come together in an atmosphere of sincerity and trust, we can actualize even our most utopian dreams. As each member of a partnership contributes in his or her own way to the achievement of a shared goal, the bonds between individuals in that endeavor are strengthened.

It takes time for our roots to grow strong in common ground with others. The strengthening happens over time and through all kinds of climates. The totality with which we can share our capacities and talent is the litmus test of how nourished we feel by the association. If we find ourselves withholding energy or wavering about whether to stay or go, it is a sign that we are not ready within ourselves to make any commitment, or that we simply have not found the partner or fellow travelers we are seeking.

This said, in an atmosphere of trust, in fact, no one is monitoring how much is given, or judging what form a contribution should take. In an environment where comparison is the rule and where the norm is for everyone to be constantly measuring himself against the other guy, trust is impossible. Every individual has a a part to play in the greater scheme of things, and although a structure might be needed for the smooth functioning of a group, it has nothing to do with hierarchy. Real unity – the kind of unity that distinguishes a community from a mere crowd – lies in a profound quality of mutual respect and a deeply felt recognition of the value of each and every participant.

Finally, a spirit of harmony among friends, between lovers, or within a community needs to be centered around a core that serves a kind of invisible glue to hold things together. This can be an individual who is loved and respected by all, or it can be a shared understanding and vision of life that moves in the hearts of each.”

“The one man band has no real place in the nurturing of fellowship. Instead, fellowship is like an orchestra. There are many different instruments, each with its own capacity for making music. Alone they have a beauty in their own right; together, they can create something larger than the sum of the parts. If you have an opportunity to play in an orchestra, take it – it can add a richness of experience that will also enhance your solo performances.

Whether companionship takes the form of an intimate relationship between two people or a larger community of family and friends, it is vital that each person’s individual strength have room to grow and that they avoid creating relationships of dependence. When individual strengths are united in accordance with inner truth, they create an energy field that can manifest heaven on earth.

To be on the journey through life with another can be a tremendous blessing if both are mindful of the fact that change is the nature of things. It may be that a moment of parting comes sooner than expected, or the companionship might grow stronger over many years, finally to be altered only by the transformation of death. But it is wise to remember that you entered this life alone and you will leave it alone. This awareness can bring a tender, poignant quality to your deepest relationships.

There are times in the life of every individual when it seems more important to be on a solitary path than to travel together with others. Both choices are equally valid, and there is no need for any antagonism or judgment when an individual decides to go it alone. No matter on what side of the coin you might find yourself – the one who is leaving, or the one who is being left – remember this.

When relationships don’t work out as you have hoped, it can cause much pain, but unlike other kinds of pain, this one is an experience that nearly everybody passes through at some time, or many times, in their lives. Don’t hesitate to open up with friends and express your feelings. They will understand, and the sharing will help you to heal.

Not every love affair has to be an earth-moving experience, and not every gathering has to have an agenda to change the world. Remember that life is a balance of earth and sky, laughter and tears, sacred and mundane. And take care that your life has a little lightness to balance the weight.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

One of the integral steps in ascension is the opening of our Higher Heart Chakra, found mid chest over the Thymus Gland, between the Heart Chakra and the Throat Chakra. This Chakra deepens our connection to each other, to the Divine and to All beings on the planet and beyond. It is thought to be the channel for Christ Consciousness, and supports us in living in Unconditional Love and complete acceptance.

This Chakra is activated through gratitude, forgiveness, compassion and Unconditional Love. It is thought to be activated when we pray for others, heal others and give of ourselves to others with no agenda or expectations of returns. It is activated when we see the Light in others, when we take a chance in love, when we give ourselves over to deepen the connection with another, be it in friendship or romance. It expands when we open ourselves to receive love from others. When opened and aligned with the Heart and Throat Chakras, it facilitates pure, honest and authentic communication, receptivity, sensitivity and emotional availability. True love is possible when two people can connect through the opening of these Chakras.

There is a focus on your close relationships now; maybe someone new is coming into your life, whether it is romance or a close friendship. Maybe it is a deepening of a connection that you have felt with another, or a relationship going to the next level. Whatever it is, it will require you to be open, honest and authentic. It will require you to be Yourself. And also to accept others as themselves, without trying to change them. It will also be a time to admit to yourself that you really do need others, that you cannot do it all yourself. It’s ok to ask for help, to accept support and love. You are worthy, and the Universe has something very special in store for you.

Embrace the new.

Namaste
