The Human Gift:

O heart!
What is your excuse for all these blunders?
Such loyalty is offered by the beloved,
yet so much treason comes from you.

Such kindness is offered by the beloved,
yet so much defiance and resistance comes from you.
Such grace is offered by the beloved,
yet so much fault and failure comes from you.

Such attraction is offered by the beloved,
with sweetness and generosity,
yet such jealousy comes from you,
with so much doubt and suspicion.”


“Do you bemoan your lack of faith? Do you berate yourself, blazing angel, because you have moments where you cannot bring yourself to trust in love more than you trust in your fear? Do you lament and worry that you could, or should, be living in greater surrender? And yet, when is light more precious than when it arises from darkness? When is trust more admirable than when it involves an uncertain, yet bold, leap of faith? Oh human angel, your path is perfection in the divine sense – not in some artificial absence of struggle, but in the wrestling of darkness and light that ignites the fire within your holy heart.

So rise up now from your doubts and admonishments, and let your human self be loved. Even for all the doubt, you are still a cherished one of the Great Beloved and always shall be.”

“Be kind to your heart. You may believe it to be weary from doubt and distrust, so much heartbreak and so many agonies, yet still it beats. Still it persists, with unquestioning allegiance to life. What a grand heart it is, this sacred heart of yours. How can it be worthy of anything other than tenderness, gratitude, acknowledgment and appreciation?

Do not plague your heart with falsehoods and expectations of some disembodied perfection! The perfection of your heart is that is loves still, even if you try to stop it with some notion of self-protection from future hurt through doubt or fear – still it loves. It is perfection that it hopes even after despair, that it holds compassion even after experiences of fear. So then, what is there left to do but breathe the grandest sigh of relief and allow yourself the essential luxury of peace within? So then, everything is all right – even if at some moments it seems not to be, still, your heart beats in honour of life. The heart can be nurtured and coaxed into gentle acceptance of all that is and the divine sight will become available to you.

It will be something you can come to count on at all times, and in that, gain greater peace and the realization that, yes, it is safe to trust and surrender! Indeed, it is the only safe, sane and sensible way to live. It is also the most fun way to live! And you are allowed to live this way if you so choose. It is not shirking your duty as a responsible adult! It is not deluding yourself and turning away from the real world! Rather, surrender is placing responsibility where it is best placed – firmly in the hands of that part of you wise enough to know the Great Beloved is wiser still, and that your life unfolds according to the Great Beloved’s grace.

So, for now, take comfort in this oracle. Just for a moment, let your heart be honoured and loved by you, and imagine that you can crack open a window in the dustiest chamber of your own heart temple to let the light of the Divine stream in. You may see the angel reaching to assist you: you may receive the gift of understanding, insight and revelation; you may feel peace; or you may finally allow your heart to break once more to shed those old grievances and be free and fresh to live and love again. Or you may quietly realize you are human, you are light and dark, of heaven and earth. What a perfect blend you are of all that can possibly be. You are an extraordinary, living divine experiment in the making. And you are sacred, cherished and loved by the Great Beloved. So do not fear your fear, but do doubt your doubt with compassion. Let it be and let it go. You are human after all, and your journey is beyond description. Just remember, if you are ever in need of the Great Beloved, there is a place where sacred tryst is always available to you; in the temple of your heart with the window cracked open, so that doubt can fly out and love can breathe freely.

This oracle comes with special guidance for you. You are, or soon will be, seeing with greater clarity and insight, a situation that has been obscured to you in the past. You may be startled by what you perceive, so much so, that you second-guess yourself or chalk it up to wild imagination on your part. You are asked to trust in your perceptions that when they come for the heart – although what you perceive may be darkness – there will be no judgment in it. See what is truthfully there; be in the compassionate nature of your heart, and you shall also be shown the most graceful way to become clear and free of darkness, either within yourself or within others and the world around you.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands on your heart and say the following aloud: ‘I love you. You are strong, brave and powerful. You are gentle, vulnerable and inspired. You are truth. You are insight. You are wisdom. You are life! I love you and you are safe. You are the Divine made flesh. You, my precious heart, my precious connection to life, I adore you. Thank you for loving. Let us open the inner window, let the stale emotion out, and breathe in fresh life now, for you are to be well and thrive according to love’s grace and wisdom. I trust in what you know and what you see. In compassion, I honour all perceptions of truth. So be it.”

You have finished your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Love you. Accept you. Embrace your uniqueness, and your connection to All That Is. See the Divine human perfection in every flaw and imperfection of each and every one of us. Without this love we have nothing.

We are so hard on ourselves. We strive for something more, something deeper and more meaningful. We hang on long after it was necessary to let go. We are rocked by our emotions, sometimes knocked off course. We look to others, wanting and wishing that things could be different; not realizing that we sit on a goldmine of opportunity at all times. All of us, without exception.

This message is to bring you back to the most important aspect of your life, your existence. YOU! Not other people. Not more stuff. Not anything other than you. You and your gifts, your wisdom; your talents and your skills. Your big and beautiful heart. All that you can share in this lifetime… if you don’t get in your way and hold yourself back!

Know that if you can find it in your heart to forgive, accept and unconditionally love yourself, and where you are at, and what you have been through… you have the power to change it all. You are only a decision, a choice away from a brand new start. From creating something totally amazing. A new direction, a new path, a new life. Yours, if you can embrace all that you are first.

She Is The Moon

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

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

~ By Alana Fairchild


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

~ By Richard Cohn

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

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

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

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

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

The Ancient Ones

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ancient Ones, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli, Poetry by Richard Cohn

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

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

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

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

Here’s knowing that emotion
Like wind
Blows many ways

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

~ By Richard Cohn

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

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

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

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

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

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

It is your Soul path; your reason for Being.

Anchor the Light despite the chaos, despite the conflict.

Choose love.

Woman Of Light

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Woman Of Light, from the Journey Of Love, by Alana Fairchild, Richard Cohn and Rassouli

Woman Of Light: “Pure is my joy, my celebration, I know the Divine to be eternal! There is no limit to my peace, to my pleasure, as I rise and rise and rise again. Capable am I of receiving the light, of accepting the next level of illumination. I am sacred flesh coming to light. I am the walking temple, the living goddess, she who shines with truth. I come to you now, I am one with you now. I am the awakened one and the awakener.

This oracle brings you guidance that you are to be witness to the presence of an awakened being. Either within your own Self as apart of your spiritual destiny or in the form of a beloved other. An awakened one is in your midst or soon will be. Receive the blessing that emanates from such a being, for to behold one is a gracious spiritual gift that will lift you to the next step of your path. If you are having trouble discerning the true presence of an awakened teacher in your midst, or even in your own being, remember that nothing is asked from you by such awakened ones but loving devotion so that they may serve the awakening of all living beings. It requires much karmic grace to be granted immediate access to an awakened being, even more to become such a living light! Take delight!”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

I asked God for a deepening of my love

Without realizing that the deeper I was willing to go

The more it involved letting go

Of any part of myself that wanted to love and still be safe

In surrender to the possible

Lay the greatest potential for love

At levels before unknown

Like a cistern that holds the nectar of life

And gives its precious liquid

Only to be filled again with nature’s flow

Such knowingness is a gift

For if you can embrace the blessing

You can live without question

Relaxing and replenishing

With each breath, with each kidss

Always whole”*

~ By Richard Cohn

The person who is coming into your life now, as suggested by yesterday’s message, is an asset to your spiritual enlightenment. It may be that they assist you in reaching the next level of consciousness, it may be that they simply help you to raise your vibration by experiencing joy and inspiration in their presence. Whatever the effect they have on you, or you have on them, is beneficial not only to you, but to everyone whose lives you both touch.

If it is the blossoming of a romantic relationship, your love together will send out Light that helps to heal and lift the spirit’s of others. If it is a friendship, the combination of your energies will uplift everyone who comes into contact with you. If it is a business partnership, what you create will be of service to many. Whatever the combination is, it is an extremely powerful and positive one, which will help to bring more love and light into the world than you may think possible.

This Love and Light will be a catalyst for those around you, creating an alchemical shift from vibrational “lead” to blazing Gold. It will create shifts that will have residual after effects for quite some time, possibly months or years to come; even if it is short lived, it will serve a much larger purpose.

This is an exciting time! The most important things to remember are: To stay your course, do not compromise in order to “fit in” but be absolutely true to yourself and your values. Recognize your gifts, the magic is very much in you, just as it is in someone else, don’t put them above you or give away your power, this is about equality, seeing the gifts that you have as well as those of others. And lastly, listen to your heart, if the person or situation in front of you doesn’t feel right, then it is not the right person or situation. Let it go and the right fit will happen. Have Faith.

The Temple

Published June 20, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle


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

The Temple: “The lover and the beloved meet in sacred space. They take respite from cares of the world, entering into sanctuary where only they exist. You are in need of this. Meditation, making love, connection and dance, intimacy and surrender into the moment. Your body and soul need to enter into the Temple and participate in sacred ceremony. Choose to gift this to yourself. Set aside time. Turn off the computer and mobile telephone. Turn on music and set the lighting. Be in the present moment. Do you remember your body? Ah, yes, here it is. Can you be in its temple with presence and delight?

This oracle brings guidance to take time out to smell the flowers, savour the pleasures of life and renew your connection to the inner lover. Your sensuality wants to come out and play. You are encouraged to explore scent, touch, taste and feeling. You are encouraged to play with colour. What moves you? What brings you into connection with yourself in this moment again? It is the wholeness of divine self-connection in sacred space that will best nourish you now.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

“Love should be given as it is received

On this day I grant you the love

Of a thousand mountain streams

And the pleasure of a hundred bleats

From a new born baby fawn

For I too cry for love

And like the fawn

I cry with the hunger of being alive

And on this day

I cry for the happiness of giving

And the warmth of receiving

And the softness of your gentle touch

It is moments like these when I smile

For the someone who will always care.”

~ Richard Cohn

Summer Solstice in the Western Hemisphere. A juicy time. Sensual, beautiful, expansive and creative. A time for Love, Light and freedom of expression. This doesn’t have to be sexually driven, it can be the creative juices of our powerful ability to manifest our dreams and desires. Painting a reality in technicolour, high definition fifth dimensional colour, Light, feel, taste and sound.

What are you creating now? What are you birthing? What is possible?

It’s a good day to wear something flowing and soft. To put a little extra attention into your self expression. The perfect time to surround yourself with beauty: fresh flowers, favourite music, bare feet, warm sunlight and starry skies. This is embracing all that we are and all that we wish to be. It is about being grateful for where we are, where we came from and where we are going. Grateful for the journey and the many destinations along the way.

This could be a day of daring, of flirting and smiling and embracing. It could be a day of playfulness, relaxation and playing hooky from the mundane. It could be a day to plan a vacation or go to the spa. It could be the perfect day to go get a little treat and sit under a tree.

Light a white candle and bless your life. You are on the right path. Everything is in place. All is as it should be for the next to unfold.

Feel the magic, roll around in it, surrender to it.

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Knowing Without Knowing, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

Knowing Without Knowing: “Sometimes the heart knows in a way that the concrete mind and memory cannot. We feel something that we cannot quite express. Perhaps others are quick to dismiss it as meaningless whimsy or irrationality, yet that feeling beyond the mind’s capacity to fully perceive is the ancient truth of your greater self reaching through time and space to connect with you. Like a phone line extending from a more ancient place in the world, you can hear it crackle perhaps, not the clearest reception, yet you can also sense the love traveling along that telephone line. The things that you feel and that you do not appear to make sense are the things to trust most now. You are being guided by a force far greater than you own mind, an ancient divine brilliance is reacting to you, communicating with you – you may not hear or understand it with clarity as yet, but you can feel it. Trust what you feel.

This oracle speaks to you of the opening up of your higher mind, of the part of your intelligence that can dialogue directly with the forces of divine guidance and creation. These forces use symbols, abstract communications through dreams and visions, through impulses that circumvent your conscious mind and have words streaming out of your mouth or flowing through your mind that you have not created of your own volition. Someone speaks to you and you respond, with words that you feel you are hearing for the first time as they pour out of your mouth. “Whose words are these?” you wonder. It is your ancient self that speaks. Trust the strange and mysterious at this time. It is another way, an ancient way of wisdom, that you are tapping into now. Enjoy this new sacred connection unfolding. This oracle is also confirmation that you have relationships around you now and continuing to come to you, that are from times long past, karmic connections that will take you further on your journey of love.

I have been here before

Aromas open the doors

I walk through knowing”*

~by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

Our higher selves connect to us through our intuition, but sometimes it is hard to tell what is coming in from “outside” and what is rising up out of the depths of our Soul. Our Soul communicates with us through our chakras, or energy centers found throughout the body. It will communicate to us through these centers, letting us know “where we are at” and when we do not listen, the feelings become more and more persistent. Often feelings of heaviness or anxiety can be warning signs that something is not quite right, we may be missing or ignoring obvious red flags in a situation or when dealing with a person. Often this happens when we are projecting what we would like the outcome to be, rather than seeing it for what it (sometimes glaringly obviously!) is. On the flip side, if we are overly cautious, and prone to missing opportunity, then it may be that we overlook or turn away from doors that are opening to us. If a situation or person feels right, or lightens our heart, it may be worth spending a little time checking that out.

As we get better at listening, the messages come faster and clearer. There is nothing our Higher Selves like more than to communicate with us! They are our guidance, our protection, our GPS system. If we listen, we can avoid simple struggles such as traffic jams and lineups, get great parking spaces, purchase winning lottery tickets and adopt the perfect pets! The options are literally limitless. Checking in is absolutely invaluable, and can be done by taking time in silence and contemplation for larger issues, and a quick check in for the little things in life.

Your Soul wishes to communicate with you, please honour this call and take the time to respond. You will be amazed at what you didn’t know you knew!

The Spaces Between The Worlds

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Spaces Between The Worlds, from the Journey Of Love Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Rassouli and Richard Cohn

The Spaces Between The Worlds: “When we look for guidance we often look for words that clarify, reassure and help us find our authentic path through the chaos. Yet there is also guidance in the spaces between the worlds, between each letter, between all the happenings in our lives, where there is nothing to be said, where there are no lines to be coloured in, where there is just openness. Those are the times when we need to freestyle! We need to do or not do, based on what is happening for us right in the moment. Often there is far less to do than we think. Often we do not need to think! There is a space forming around you now. Sometimes when we sense this subconsciously we feel exhilarated and excited, anxious and nervous, and not even sure why. There is a sense perhaps that we would not mind having a map of this unknown terrain. Or perhaps we are happy to wing it, and make it up as we go along. Either way, there is space to just be – it is a receiver for the divine presence. If you have a lot of space, of unknowing around you now, or within you, then just know that there is a lot of divine presence to be received. It can’t be explained really, it happens between the worlds and yet without it, there would not be any words, any guidance at all.

The oracle speaks to you – enter the space and let go, for your time to receive it is upon you.

Be blessed.”

~ by Alana Fairchild

“Day Birth

The Eastern rise of time

On new born wings

Bursts out across the lifeless crowd

And sings its climb to heights unknown

Of beauty warmth and power upon its throne

To fade again in Western sky

And only for a moment lie

Before it takes its course again

To breathe once more in heart of man.”

~ By Richard Cohn

There is a space between breaths; between heartbeats. A space between thoughts. A space between musical notes. There is a stillness before the wind comes; and a split second between the waves pulling back and coming crashing back to shore. There is a space between the moments when a bird flaps its wings then soars. There are spaces between the clouds; between the petals on each flower. There are spaces between the licking flames of fire and there spaces between the stars.

These are sacred spaces; they are filled with Love and magic and light. They are the shimmer of the dimensions, of possibility, the magic of Divine creation and infinite blessings.

It is up to us to fill these spaces with gratitude, awe and reverence. Use them to connect us to the ancients; our ancestors, our ethereal benevolent guides and light beings. The Source of endless Love and Light. We can use our imaginations to dream miracles into existence and plant their seeds in these spaces with faith and trust. We can fill them with prayers. With intentions for the very highest good of All.

Wherever we look we will find them. And when we do, we will realize that they are the thread that holds us all together. A part of something much bigger.

An integral part of the Universe.

And so it is. And always has been. Throughout all time and space.
