From Nothing To Everything:

“O my friend
If you are longing to be written on,
become a blank page.”
~ RUMI

“Have you been shedding your sins, your layers, your certainties? Gone are fixed identities and definite opinions! Keep casting those shackles aside, even if you fear you are releasing too much and then, perhaps, you shall cease to exist! You shall only cease to exist as you have known yourself to be thus far. Another emanation of you awaits, blazing angel! Something more beautiful and true.

Yet here you are at the pruning stage, like a gardener for the soul. Shall the garden spring back to life, or will the enthusiastic denuding process be rather too much an unintentionally kill off the garden altogether? Fear not. Your soul is made of hardy stuff. It can handle a lot of culling and will shine even brighter for it.

There is a greater story to be impressed upon your essence than the one you are currently dreaming up. Though you are brilliant – no doubt about it, my angel of love – there is one who is even more so. The imagination of this great writer is beyond our comprehension; the stories that pour forth from that cosmic poet in every moment are so rich they inspire the creation of art and music.

One such story is especially created for you. Yes, you. With a starring role and all the best supporting cast! You shall gasp in wonder, awe, glee and delight when you hear it! It is a great romance, a great adventure, with an ending truly spectacular and divine. Would you wish to hear it? Become attentive now. Put your own tales aside, as dramatic as they may seem right now, and prepare to be entranced by the greater storyteller, the living poet of love, as you are entranced in a tale of your unfolding divine destiny.”

“There are moments on the path of love that seem to focus on letting go; letting go of identities, of knowledge and certainty, of opinion and even attempts at control. We may feel as though we are being stripped back to our core and even then, perhaps, further still. We may wonder if we can bear it. What shall, if at all, remain intact through these rigors? We may feel challenged every time we attempt to become something great, as though we are blocked by circumstances beyond our control. Again and again, it is as though a greater hand smacks our wrist the moment we try to take hold of something firmly, someone, anything, that brings us certainty or inner stability. Such are the rigors at an advanced stage on the path. We meet this challenge when our soul is ready for it.

Why must it be thus? This is a sage question indeed. When we are asked to dispense with our story, the interpretations we have given to our life experiences over the years, we may not hear the request at first. We may vaguely note it but not recognize the great divine source asking this of us, and so we do not give such an inclination due accord. we may persist with spinning our own tales instead. Oh, our mind may fancy itself to be a great wrangler of the word, impressed with its own judgments and declarations, yet in the light of comparison with the divine tale for our soul, all our fancies shall pass away, revealed as so very frail, like clouds dissipating in the sky.

Perhaps we are graced with the realization – there is so much more! Or perhaps we still don’t get the hint and move into struggle as we try to enact what we think our story should be. We may hit obstacle after obstacle and create even more terror in our storytelling – that life is such pain, a struggle, that success may not be for us, that we are forgotten and unheard. Yet we could equally choose to wonder if obstacle after obstacle, closed door after closed door, is just a prompt to look for the open window to climb through. And if so, instead of seeking to impose our small story upon the great truth, we can live the truth of our divine destiny.

Then something magical happens: we participate through presence along with the unfolding story of our soul journey. We open up to whatever is asked of us, presented to us, happening through us, as we choose each day to come alive as much as we can. Then, as if by magic, there is something else that occurs. That would be grace – real, rich dripping with goodness and sustenance – grace. This is the sacred blessing that enables us to pay attention to opening doors rather than closing ones, the divine assistance that lets us know our life is proceeding according to a greater intelligence and plan. Once we stop thinking quite so much and live day to day, we will be blessed with the realization that our individual life story is so much more extraordinary and perfect than anything we could have summoned, even with our wildest imagination.

This oracle comes with guidance for you. You are being asked to let go to receive, to become empty to be filled. This may mean letting go of attachment to a lover so you can receive genuine love. It may be of no longer holding onto a fantasy of your dream job, but of being guided into your most soulful and successful vocation. It may mean letting go of wishes for your body or health to be other than it is, so you can simply get on with living each day, taking steps into wellness without thinking beyond one day at a time. It is the divine paradox that when we are asked to surrender a story or fantasy, it is because reality is knocking at our door, more often than not, with the delivery of what we have been fantasizing about – but in the best way for us.

The human experience of this paradox is that you may feel you are giving up hope, that your fantasy is dying. It may be very painful and bring you much grief. But all that is dying is your attachment and opinion about how it must be. This needs to happen so you can stop dreaming and start living it. This is what is happening for you now. Do not fear any part of your process; embrace it without expectation, with trust in your heart, that the Divine is simply guiding you from fantasy into fulfillment.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Does it feel as if every door has been shut, even those you were hoping to walk through? Do you feel you have been stripped bare, and are vulnerable to the elements? Do you feel like things are beyond your control?

This is a message of great surrender. All we can do is trust. We can hope and we can dream, but we are not in control at the moment. Things are being peeled… or torn away… in order to make space for the new. Mostly this is because it takes us too long to do this process ourselves. We are too fearful of losing it all. We cling on to what we think we know; the stability of the routine, the compromise. We are afraid to aim higher, to take risks, to take those big huge leaps of faith.

So the Universe nudges us forward. And then it gives us a big shove to get us to where we need to be. And we feel sorry for ourselves when this happens! It’s uncomfortable! We weren’t ready! We wanted what we thought we had….

And yet it was all holding us back from what we are actually meant to be doing, living, being.

So all that’s gone now. And the slate is clean. And something wonderful is right around the corner.

Surrender. Breathe. Believe.

Faith is key.

Namaste

Al-Uzza Star Of Venus

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Al-Uzza Star Of Venus, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli, Published by Blue Angel

Al-Uzza Star Of Venus:

I am the pure Light, my son.
I am not a handful of worthless dust.
I am not just an empty shell.
I am a regal pearl formed in this world!

Close your eyes to see and become aware of me.
Perceive me with eyes that see the unseen.
Come into the mystery to find me.
I am a carefree visitor here for you.”

-RUMI

“My beautiful one, born of pure radiance, you have love in your heart and a passion for play that cannot be dulled by bleakness, boredom or fear. Your soul is sensual and dances with life with utter abandonment and devotion. Though the ways of this world seem strange to you at times, you eventually declare it to be nothing but strange beauty, and expand your heart, resisting nothing, to allow all to be bathed in the radiance of your being. You are here to share the light of another world, a blessed world of consciousness pure, and divinity so absolute that it transcends duality and instead, brings all into the oneness of the greatest love.”

“The Star Of Venus is the great androgyne; neither solely masculine nor feminine, but an integration of both. The power it bestows is mighty and based utterly in love. When this star seeks us out, multiple blessings are bestowed and our spiritual growth can be accelerated in ways that may be quite dazzling and surprising to our more limited mindset and belief systems.

With great blessings, great growth is possible. However, the blessings don’t do the growth for us making it magically happen. They give us the oomph we need, the power, and the opportunities and assistance we need, yet it is still we who take the journey. The great spiritual journey for old souls at this time in earth’s history is the journey from duality to oneness. Many are signing up for that wild, loving adventure. This oracle has come to you as a reminder that  you, too, have been granted a ticket for that journey. This journey of oneness is not about denying duality, but about experiencing it as an expression of one love. It is about no longer being enslaved by it. It is about avoiding what is not wanted in order to pursue what is wanted. It is about embracing the all, of finding the freedom and joy originally sought, but now through a path that takes you into joy and freedom existing within.

To take the great transformation from man or woman into cosmic androgyne does not require that we lose our sense of femininity or masculinity. Rather, they become so superior in development that they cease to be distinguished from each other! Our masculine clarity, with its discernment, practicality and application, becomes so tender, loving, compassionate and tempered with grace, that the feminine is integrated with it. Our feminine nurturance, dedication, and connection to life become so fierce that discernment and wise action naturally prevail.

With this great androgynous integration of the masculine and feminine into oneness, men and women of this beautiful earth become capable of new consciousness. It is of one based in love, of service to life, of letting go of judgment, stereotypes and limited belief systems, and of opening up to compassion for all life. As the consciousness is anchored, spiritual growth becomes rapid. This is not necessarily without some bumps and bruises. Letting go of old notions of what it is to be a man, or a woman, to be masculine or feminine; letting go of fear of women or men, of emasculation or victimization,; letting go of wounding are all great steps forward! They promise liberation, empowerment and compassion, as well as peace and happiness, yet they are not easy steps to take. Great resistance can be evoked within you as an individual, and also within the culture around you which might find your notion of personal spiritual empowerment confronting and challenging to their culture of fear-based enslavement of the soul. (They will be right about it being confronting, but mistaken in assuming that confrontation is something best resisted!)

So then, what to do? Al-Uzza, the ancient shining one, also known as the Star Of Venus, holds much power and strength. Even a small blessing of her light is more powerful than the fear of thousands if not millions of people. She is known as a worthy ally in battle of any kind – even spiritual battle. You must, however, stay aligned with her way which is not to fight fear with fear, hate with hate, or anger with anger.

Does this mean you “should not” feel fear, hate or anger? Of course not! Venus denies no experience. So let yourself feel whatever you feel. The guidance is not to stop being human. Take the next step into the divine human, into allowing the star blessing to nestle in your heart so you can shift as you feel the feelings, holding them with compassion, then choosing your own truths that resonate at a fear more refined vibration.

The rebellious passion of the Star Of Venus is that she seeks out whomever is ready to know more fully the truth of divine oneness. Whether the culture around them can acknowledge one of “their own” become more enlightened as a blessing or not, it is a divine gift nevertheless. How liberating it shall feel to be truly empowered to live life as you feel is truthful, and to feel completely empowered to allow others to do the same, with joy in your heart. You understand that everyone is walking an unfolding path, and that we don’t have to understand or justify the path of another to feel peace in our own hearts.

If you are stumbling with judgment within yourself, do not fear. The blessing of Venus is coming to you to help you surrender it, to help you find your way through so that you can be free now.

Your guidance then is to trust your path, trust your evolution, even in the face of those around you reacting to it possibly in fear or discomfort. Trust in the paths of others too. For in truth, there is one path and we are all on it! You do not have to convince anyone of anything, that is not your job. Your job is to embrace your wisdom, embrace your freedom and empowerment to grow spiritually and live your life accordingly. You are becoming, through bestowal of grace, something more of a goddess and a god, of a human and a sacred animal, integrated as one. This is sacred alchemy, amplified in the star fires of Venus who loves you as a brother/sister and honours your soul with her blessing. Shine true, beloved, shine true.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

When Venus comes to us, it is a message of love. Love in every aspect, beginning with love of self and radiating outwards. How you love yourself is how you see the world and how the worlds sees you. When you are at peace with who you are and accepting of your strengths and weaknesses, you are open to receiving more love.

How can you shift how you view your place in the world? How can you see that you are more than just your appearance, or your past? When you shift your perspective of your self, you shift your consciousness, which in turn shifts your reality. You make space for something bigger, the energy of unconditional love.

Venus brings our our inner sensuality, our wild and free selves. It asks us to play, to flirt with life. It asks us to take a chance, to open up and to experience something new.

There is love coming to you in one form or another, are you open to receive it? This love will come in the form that you desire most, but maybe in a different package than expected. It could be the love of your life, or it could be loving who looks back at you in the mirror. It could be a sudden opening, activation or expansion of the heart or higher heart chakra. Each of us will experience it differently, but, if ready and willing, each one of us will certainly experience it.

Namaste

The Right Choice

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Right Choice, from the Rumi Oracle, By Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli Published by Blue Angel

“Stay close to those who know about the heart.

Choose the shade of a tree

that is in constant bloom.

Don’t meander aimlessly

among the herb sellers and potion venders.

Go directly to the shop

that sells nothing but sweets!

Don’t sit waiting by every boiling pot

to have your plate filled!

Not every boiling pot

is cooking what you want.

Not every sugar cane is filled with sugar.

Not every down has an up.

Not every eye has vision.

Not every sea contains pearls.”

~RUMI

“Within you, I recognize my most trusted friend. Ah, we go back a long way to before that moment when time began. We knew each other then, even before time was born.

So I say, ‘Hello my old and dear friend, so lovely for us to meet again.’ And I feel how your heart responds with a wave of love, for it is that love that is you, my most trusted friend.”

“On the path of love there is not so much wrong and right in the moral sense, so much as what is wrong or right for you. The mind cannot help so much here. Only the heart can speak such truths. The mind may reject it, recoil, analyze and find all the reasons why the simple truth – the right choice of the heart – cannot possibly work and only lead to pain. That is what the mind does rather well, actually. But it doesn’t mean the right choice – the heart choice – becomes incorrect. It means rather, that the heart has outsmarted the mind, and the mind will need to bow to the heart, even without understanding its sometimes impenetrable mysteries. Or one can choose to stay in inner conflict, fighting against the right choice, bur eventually love will prevail and the way forward must be taken.

So you can give up what you have planned, believed or decided. Let the heart wisdom, that silently and constantly boadcasts its pure and true intention into the fertile womb of the universe, lead the way instead. It will lead you along the right path, to the right house where sits the right master for you. He grabs you in a bear hug and gently whispers into your hear, ‘What took you so long? I’ve been waiting for you since the day you were born. Now we are together, it is time for us to play!’

It is said that one man’s meat is another man’s poison. To base your choices on what others have chosen for themselves may end up killing you. Better to take your risks on the angel of your own heart, wise as that being is, and dance to your own heart rhythm instead. There may be fear if others seem to be dancing different steps; but beloved, you know that is just because every heart has its own unique rhythm, and yours doesn’t want to waltz, so much as to tango. So why not allow it to be thus without fear or doubt?

This oracle comes with a message for you. In your heart you know what holds meaning for you. You may or may not have a grand vision to go along with that meaning as yet, but deep within, you know what is without value and what holds value – for you. You were born with those values intact, in your heart, and whatever confusion has arisen for you along the way is just where the values of others have transfused into your own blood. It is time for a transfusion of holy light into that blood, to be cleansed and purified, restored to it’s integrity and filled with passion for what is rightfully yours – your unique passion and purpose.

If you have been concerned about your path and what steps to take next, this oracle comes as an omen of good things headed your way: clarity, reassurance, truth and revelation. Don’t hold onto a belief system or vision if it appears to be tossed on its head. Let things go the way they will and good fortune will prevail for you. that vision might actually have been upside down all this time, and suddenly able to go right itself and be born for you if allowed to topple. Or perhaps there is a more fulfilling version or your vision lurking in its remnants, to be scooped up by your soul with its hawk-vision and eagle-deftness. Trust that if you are being drawn away from a tantalizing sweet shop, there is a more decisions array of confection just around the corner for you. So yes, have your tantrum if you must, but you will be sheepish soon when you realize the hand of the Great Beloved that removes is the same hand that bestows even greater gifts.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual”

“Turn the palms of your hands down towards the earth.

Say aloud: “With gratitude and trust, I release that which is not rightfully mine.”

Open your hands upwards towards the sky.

Say aloud: “I give thanks for the grace that is bestowed upon me now as I accept my rightful divine inheritance.”

Stand with your hands in prayer at your heart and say aloud: “I honour my heart wisdom. May my heart always be my leading light, showing me the way of grace. So be it.”

You have completed your honouring ritual.”*

Ego is no longer in charge. Yes it serves a purpose, but Heart, lead by Soul is taking the reins. In this transformational time, ego would have us shivering in fear, withholding love, living in fear. Heart knows better; it is Love that will set us free. There is so much love to give; so much to receive. It is time to open our hearts and experience the Divine through this Love; becoming vessels of Light; portals of Light. This is ascension.

Fear is such a heavy load to carry. It is constantly blocking the way with the “what if’s” and the “watch out’s,” the “should’s” and the “look what happened before’s”…. let all that go….

Embrace Love and know that it is the most powerful force in the Universe.

It is why we are here. The building block of our very existence.

Take the leap of faith and ask, what else is there, but love?

Take the leap of faith and open your heart fearlessly; give and receive Love.

I AM Love

And so it is

We turn the world right side up

With Love

Namaste

Star Mother Arrakis

Published January 6, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Star Mother Arrakis, from the RUMI Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Star Mother Arrakis, from the RUMI Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Star Mother Arrakis:

“Be the king who has made his own kingdom
Be the moon that has made her own summit.
How much longer
will you coo coo like a pigeon?

Empty your head of all mortal lusts,
and become life without breath.
You will not call out for God anymore,
for you have become immersed in God.”

~ RUMI

“Your star mother, Arrakis, dances with your soul on the celestial inner planes. She dances in the embrace of Father Sky, shining white and pale, deep in devotion to the light behind all that is. Arrakis, Dancing Star of the Heavens, incites our souls to feel the rhythm of life and surrender to it in flow, in grace, stumbling and in play. Like a child who thinks not of the ‘right steps’ but just moves with music and with joy, she reminds you to dance freely and from your heart. She reminds you that your soul is constantly dancing with the Divine. What better way to connect with the joy and beauty of your soul than to mimic its movements? So dance, beloved. Let your being dance. Oh Arrakis! Your bright beauty penetrates even the darkest of minds to remember, remember, remember.

She calls out; her voice is music to our hearts. ‘You are a child of heaven. You are born of such regal stuff, dear dancing child of the stars. When you suffer, I send you my comfort as stars falling from the sky. When you triumph, my dance becomes wild, and light erupts from my heart in all directions. The light becomes music, stirring within you with an urge – almost inexplicable and yet so very deep and real – to make music, to create art, to dance, to play, to be at one with the joyful creative energy that dwells within you, beloved.’

Star child, earth angel, divine creature – your Star Mother keeps an eye on all the wild games happening in the sacred playground of the earth. She will care for you, righteous and true, shining divine justice and protection. No bully shall prevail over you. No bully from within you shall prevail either! No lies, deceit or injustice shall temper your wild truths. Be demanding in claiming her love for you. Learn how to love yourself as she loves you – with wild, unconditional, passionate regard! Be like the child wailing for its mother, ‘Ma! Ma! Ma! Come close!’

Then she descends! Like a torrential downpour of devotional light, a tsunami of affection is unleashed. A rampaging cosmic tigress hurtles towards you, her claws gripping the fabric of the skies as she rushes to protect her beloved cub. She will fight for you against the forces that would dull you and dumb you down, obscure your brilliance and stultify your free form dance into strict, choreographed movements. She will pour her luminous essence into every crevice of your demanding soul. Nothing can resist her light. All shall be washed and revived in the outpouring of her luminous love. Then, sated and content, you are the child so secure in the love of the mother, you trust in life implicitly and in what is brought to your door. You do not succumb to untruths. You do not resist because you are safe, held in the love of the mother. You have no need to resist. What is there to resist? Nothing! There is only the loving truth in your world and all is at peace in your heart.

And should there be cause to stand up and fight – for love, for freedom, for light, for her truths of unconditional life, respected and honoured – well, you shall particularly equipped for success. When there is that war to fight, you shall be the warrior who defends the motherland, absolute in your devotion to her ways and empowered through her vast, indefatigable, triumphant power.

And shall you bludgeon your way with brute force and fear? Of course not.

So here is your guidance. Lay down your old weapons for new technology awaits you! It is the most magnificent of forces, that of divine alignment, of surrender to the Star Mother and her way of luminous potency. From her great vantage point, the vastest problems of our earthly mindsets are merely in need of a quick whipping by the tail of a comet, and this she easily achieves by flicking a strand of her hair or poking out her tongue. In the hands of a greater being, even your deepest trials will succumb to divine victory. Your ability to take the journey will be strengthened, and your success only a matter of the passing of time. Can you give yourself this gift, this blessing of the love, power and protection of your star heritage? We all descend from the stars, but some of us are asked to remember to acknowledge the divine parentage from which we come, and to allow the innate divine dignity within to restore us to faith in the path here on earth.

No matter how dark life on earth may seem at times, when we remember our holy heritage we can also realize,’Ah yes, I am blessed, held as one with the mother who shall not be deterred from great holy purpose. I shall prevail! I forgot that and feared, but now I remember and am determined once more. ‘Then you shall feel joy and be inclined to dance, to sing, to make your art, and to live fearlessly once again.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Open your hands up above your head and say: “Through unconditional love and divine mercy, through the blessings of the ancient master and sages, including Brother Rumi, who loves without condition, I call upon the blessings of the stars, the remembrance of my divine heritage and the gift of spiritual success. I call upon the assurance of my soul’s triumph and the luminous embrace of the Holy Mother. I honour my soul’s need for art and for expression, and for creativity now, from a pure and loving place within me. So be it!”
You have finished your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

There is no living a full life without dedication to complete authenticity. If we are still living in illusion, if we are still living a lie, then we will pay the price by not getting to live life fully. We will always feel stagnant. Something will always be missing. There will always be an excruciating longing, a pulling, a whispering of the Soul.

If we live behind our masks in fear, then fear we will have. If we are not standing in our power, then we will feel powerless. If we keep using bandaids to cover up the wounds instead of delving deeply into the abyss to heal, then we will keep living the same patterns over and over again. Maybe in this lifetime; maybe over many lifetimes.

This is an invitation to step into our full authentic selves. Unapologetically be who we are. Step boldly onto our life path. Despite the fear of failure or judgment or rejection. Despite what others may or may not think.

Having absolute faith in the process, in the support and connection to the Universe. Knowing that we came here to do just this. Remembering. Waking up and taking full responsibility. Knowing that we are always guided, always loved. Knowing that we are absolutely celebrated for who we are, and how we fit into the collective.

Step out of the box you have been stuck in for far too long. And embrace all that life has to offer you. Find joy in creating something new.

Namaste

Sacred Phoenix Heart

Published December 5, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sacred Phoenix Heart, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sacred Phoenix Heart, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Sacred Phoenix Heart:

“Under the cover of blood,
love veils many rose gardens.
In total faith,
love tenderly guides every lover
to the garden of the heart.
Reason says,
the world is limited in six direction,
there is no way out.
Love says,
there is a way, and I have traveled it many times.”

~ RUMI

“How I adore your defiant, rebellious heart! It knows that what for the mind is an end, is for the heart, simply another match to ignite the sacred flames. It eats of love until it is filled, and then becomes hungry again and eats some more. And again and again. It eats of love until it is so full it must simply explode into a sacred fire of passion. It bursts, incapable of sustaining old consciousness in the expanse of blessings unlimited, lavished upon it through the Great Beloved’s affection. It would be like attempting to fit an ocean in a teacup! So it does not. It bursts forth, like a dying star, into a spectacular radiance, only to be reborn again, new and hungry for the next feeding frenzy in love’s great banquet. How I adore our defiant, spectacular heart!”

“Love guides us through travails that seem improbable, if not impossible. It does not shy away from any challenge, from any cause. It cannot. It is just love’s way. Love says to us there is always another way. You are receiving this guidance now.

Perhaps you are scratching your head quizzically or are in deepest despair because you appear to have met a dead end, a frowning now, or a dismissive laugh upon your quest to bring love alive. So then: do you choose to believe in love, or in the death of sorts your heart faces? Your heart shall rally! I choose death because that is the portal to new life! And so it is wise, you see, but you must be brave. To be burned in love – by love, for love – will involve endurance of pain, but it will also place it in context. It is the shorter pain that is not compounded by erroneous thinking! That pain comes and goes quite quickly when you realize that love is simply, playfully, smacking your wrist and saying, ‘Not that way, beloved. There are great pitfalls on that path – come, take this one, where there shall be wine and dancing!”

So you are guided to accept the closed doors, the death, the pain, and to let it become tinder for your fire. Cry whatever tears need to be cried so your tinder can be dry and ready to create the sparks your heart needs. That sacred phoenix, ready to die into life within you, is hungry for the fire. Let it feast so it can fulfill its potential, it’s divine destiny, and become born again into new form, more divinely aligned and alive than ever before.

This oracle comes with a message for you. You may feel as though you have been wandering in a desert for many years with no oasis in sight. You might have been through darkness, through trials, endured confusion and uncertainty as you sought for your truth, sought divine revelation and sought your purpose to confirm your plans. Seek no more. The answers are now given, or very soon will be, and the life, the passion, the purpose –  it will all come to you in clarity.

Does life need to be grasped for? It is bestowed according to grace and destiny. It need not be sought so much as received. The spiritual destiny that calls your soul – even whilst you may feel your bodily ears are deaf to the call – makes your heart leap. It is as through hearing the beloved’s voice and stirring and ancient memory of love so powerful moves you, even without you necessarily understanding how or why!

So let the life come to you. Be prepared to let the old version of  your life pass away into the new life now being born. What does this mean? It means letting go of your striving, your opinions, your doubts, your despair, and your fears. Life wants to happen through you, blazing angel. You don’t have to do much other than get out of your own way. Love is your nature. Let it flourish and life shall unfold accordingly.

This oracle brings a particular message regarding divine timing – that oh-so-significant factor in our dreams coming to life. Your time is fast approaching; it may even be now. It may seem least likely to you. There may be great darkness or confusion, and yet the unveiling of the new dawn is closest to the deepest darkness of night. Do not turn back or away from your progress. Your very next steps shall be upon hallowed ground, rendered golden by the rays of the rising sun.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands on your heart and say: ‘This Sacred Phoenix Heart is blessed. Through every loss, every grief and sadness, every mourning, this heart grows strong, ready to ignite into new life, into the dance that is not the funeral procession but the rite of spring. This heart is ready to leap with new life, to be infused with the joy of innocence and the passion of deepest devotion. How I trust my heart to lead me, guided by the inner voice of love, through all that could possibly be. I am safe. This heart knows the way and I follow it faithfully now, into the light of a new day. Through sacred grace, so be it.’

Place your hands in prayer and close your eyes. Imagine there is love in your heart and that you can send a gentle acknowledgment of that love from your mind to your heart. As you bow your head towards your hands, imagine you are mentally bowing to the greatness of our heart and the love it honours.

You have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

Change is in the air. You are the Phoenix, yet again rising up out of the ashes. Creating something new. Accepting something new. Recreating yourself in a more authentic way; one that leads you back to who you truly are and why you came here.

You may struggle to cling on to the old, as it burns away around you. Let it burn. Let it be the fire of alchemical transmutation, turning your lead to gold. Accept that there may be events playing out which are beyond your current comprehension, and try to meet them with curiosity rather than fear.

When we surrender to the fire we are reborn into something stronger, more powerful than ever before. When we actively participate in the burning ritual, we become powerful co-creators in our manifestation of something brand new.

Willingly be the Phoenix. Submit to the transformation. Embrace the fire. Focus on the Gold.

Namaste

Arise:

“Wings of hope languish
from lack of use.
When wings dissipate and weaken,
Life begins to lose its value.

Every cell in your body is created
to rise to challenges.
Your life is meant to confront
everything that holds you captive.

Don’t sit at the bottom of the well,
not caring about salvation.

Listen to the voice within calling to you.
Reach for eminence
beyond your own maturity!”

~RUMI

“I dance before you in sacred spectacle, hoping to garner your attention.

‘Look at me!’ I cry to your ailing spirit and despondent flesh, ‘Look at me!’

If you were to look up you would see that I am a mirror of your own being, your light, your heart, your spirit, your all. Yes, there is pain; yes there is a letting go taking place and you are frightened and uncertain sometimes. But you make this mean something that it does not! It means that you are to turn your head away from what is dying; do this gently but firmly. Turn your head towards what is living.

Look at me! I will show you truth and you shall laugh your deepest belly laughter with so much glee, sharing in my secret that the only force at work in your life is unconditionally loving divinity.”

“I see in you a divine wild child and sacred heart. You have gumption! Chutzpah! Guts! You dare to love where others only see pain. You dare to believe that everything will somehow work out where others see only what they judge to be wrong. You see love where others see ply fear. You seek freedom where the world still buys into manipulation and propaganda.

Don’t lose heart, beloved wild child. Dare to believe! You are right to do so. It is the divine rebel in you that refuses to surrender hope. Give up the fight perhaps, the battle that comes from a place of fear, but never give up hope. That hope in your heart, that optimism and patience for growth into love creates a light within you that helps the world see through darkness. It becomes a candle that shimmers contentedly upon the windowsill of your heart temple. There it is, more obvious even in darkness.

The stars do appear to shine brighter at night, beloved, but don’t become consumed by your nightmares. They will pass with the coming dawn, you’ll see. Don’t give them too much stock. Instead, put your attention towards that defiant candle of hope that burns, as is its nature and purpose, within you. Can you sense its warmth, even in the presence of cold fear? Ah, it shall warm you now. And if not, then I come to remind you; you are a blazing angel! You are filled with gold fire and you shall prevail.

Oh the joy of you, the expanse of you! You fill my own heart with your magnificent essence. I see and know the Great Beloved in you. There the Great Beloved is – looking out at me from behind your eyes! I see the candlelight of your heart temple flicker within your gaze. That is what the candle of hope honours – the workings of the Great Beloved, so creative and crazed with love for you that all circumstances of your life, down to the tiniest detail, are evoked out  of love. Love out of passionate desire takes you from despair into hope – from holding on to letting go, from turning away to opening up – so the Great Beloved takes you across the moonlit ocean into the temple of the Cosmic Heart. Here, an eternal flame burns bright with hope, igniting the light within the hearts of all humanity.

You are being asked to trust, to gently lay to rest the suffering that has been – perhaps because of what you have labelled as the failure, the doubt, the losses and setbacks. They are so little in the greater scheme of you. Put them aside; allow them to rot and become the fertilizer for life, but do not try to keep them alive beyond their earthly expiry date, lest you become tainted or poisoned by the rot. Let them go and instead focus on what is alive now.

Can you sense that before you is a great being of light, a greater pathway opening up? This is truth, blazing angel. This is truth. Take the step. So easy is it when the light of the heart is felt within, reminding you of your own divine nature. The world is here for you to experience so that you may realize divinity in its majesty, mystery and love – more so than ever. All serves that sacred purpose, so embrace it. Find your faith. Be at peace. Know that no matter what appears to be, all is well. You are so loved; it cannot even begin to be translated sufficiently into words, but it can be transmitted from my heart to yours, just as the sun catches dried tinder and sets it aflame.

This oracle comes with a message for you: arise. You have been downtrodden for long enough now. Perhaps you have been feeling defeated, put upon, underestimated, or walked over in mind, body or spirit by others or your own doubts and fears. Enough now – you are liberated through the hope in your heart, the defiant optimism that buoys your spirit and demands that you shall have your dawn. You shall rise like the sun and and begin anew now. Step up; it is your time.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Stand up and turn behind you. Say aloud: ‘With gratitude and deep soul-daring, I choose to say thank you and good bye to my past. What has been has been, and is no longer to be. I am at peace with this, for what has been is nothing more than fertilizer for life to flourish now. With complete forgiveness and acceptance, I allow this letting go to happen. With all of my heart, I ask for unconditional love to assist me in this sacred surrender now.’

Turn now to face forward. Say aloud” ‘I invite in life. I invite in love. I invite in what is required for my own spiritual success and thriving divinity. Through unconditional love and divine mercy, through the guiding spirit of my soul brother, RUMI, my this now be so.’

Then place one hand on your heart ans say aloud: ‘In this present moment life thrives. It is within this thriving grace that I choose to place my consciousness now. I am an angel ablaze. I trust in the benevolent divinity guiding my way.’

Place both hands in prayer and when you are ready, simply bow your head for a moment. You have finished your honouring ritual.”*

Did you read all those words above? All those beautiful words, that powerful message…. it is for you. Yes, you. Maybe you should slow down. Read it again. Savour each word, let it roll around in your head until you grasp the full meaning. Breathe it deeply into your Being. Hear it now… I promise, the message is for you. Are you listening? Is it the confirmation that you have been waiting for? What is that old cliche… don’t look in your rearview mirror, you aren’t going that way? Yes, that is the message. Look to the light, it burns brightly AHEAD of you… don’t look back.

A door is closing as it should. As it must in order for the next door to open. Yes, there is a chance that there is a journey between the doors. Time to heal. Time to regroup. Time to shed and release the old and time to make space for the new. What will get you from one door to the next? Faith. Trust in yourself and in this process. What will keep your own light burning? Hope; even a shred is enough to get you there.

You are a powerful warrior. And if you don’t feel like one now, then that is part of your task at hand. You are blazing new trails. You are here to lead. To heal. To inspire. To transform. Do not shy away from this, it is your duty. Do you remember why you came here?

Awaken. Arise. Move forward fearlessly and be the catalyst for your own growth, healing and magic.

Rise up out of the ashes Dear Phoenix, it is time for your rebirth.

Arise

Namaste

Whirling Goddess

Whirling Goddess:

“Lose your head!
Not a single thread that has a head
can go through the eye of the needle.”
~ RUMI

“Come, my love, are you dizzy yet? If you can still find your feet then that is okay with me, but if you can still find your head then I will take issue! There is a great dance, but it cannot be danced with choreographed steps. No, this great dance demands a response rather than an initiation, a reaction rather than a direction. So let us dissemble and lose our heads to the great music, the rhythm held stead in our beating hearts. Our feet shall be moving whilst our minds, inadequate to the task, take the night off.”

“There is somewhere you are meant to be. It is here, now, in this moment. There is a gift right under your nose, and fragrant wine in your glass, gleaming red as the most precious rubies. To be here, now, you must pass through the keyhole. But your head will tell you this is not possible unless the door is unlocked, even though your body is passing through the keyhole of that locked door into the endless world beyond. Leave your mind to be in its struggles for a moment. Without you laying witness to it, your ind will become like the dog howling for his master’s return, even as he steps out the front door. Frustrated temporarily, he will chew on some shoes, then fall asleep peacefully until his master returns. So leave your mind trusting, chewing a little, until you are truly through the keyhole when it can rest. Leave it be; instead, come dance with me.

This oracle brings you a message. You are at the point of growth where your mind can hold you back rather than urge you forward. If you have, like so many used your mind to support you, to sure up your sense of self in the world and to gain a sense of certainty about how the world works, then this is no easy leap! It will seem as though you are beings asked to pass through the keyhole. Of course, you  mind will stop and argue for all the reasons why the door should be opened instead of remaining closed, making the task seem so much harder than it needs to be, but this is the mind in resistance. Don’t place too much stock in the claims that life should be other than it is. You are being asked to dance, rather than understand, o lay the thoughts to rest and to come alive. It is the bravest, most trusting soul that dares put the mind to one side and say, “Tonight we dance, my heart and I, in the great rousing music of the beloved’s beating heart – and I will not miss one step.” And to awaken the next day and do it all over again – and again, and again.

You are ready, you see, sweet soul dancer. You are ready to live beyond what you know, to have it not matter if you don’t understand how life can work itself out, or how it could be that someone so normal and ordinary as you and I could also be so magnificent, wild and divine. The need for answers and plans, assurances and explanations, is passing out of your world now. You are not to wait for permission, for explanation, or even for another dance partner, for I am already inviting you on to the great dance floor. You are to let go of any stigma around not knowing. When someone asks you what you are going to do next, or how you are going to manage, you are given this divine mandate – with relish, reveal the truth: “I do not know!”

Know nothing and dance sweet soul, for all will unveil itself to you in perfect harmony and timing. Your heart shall create the steps in response to the music of the spheres, happening now, alive and spontaneous, and free.

This oracle brings you a special message. If there is an issue, apparently unsolvable or unknowable, in your life now, the Divine is handling it. The Divine is in the middle of it, working through the knot and unraveling it. Fear not; do the sacred ritual, and give yourself permission to take the night off from worry. Repeat this heavenly prescription daily as needed.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Say aloud: “I give my heart permission to lead this dance. I give my mind some time off – no more worry or doubt, planning or resisting. Instead, I surrender. Instead, I open. Instead, I allow, I allow, I allow. And all unfolds with perfection, divine timing and the miracle of grace. With Rumi as my soul witness, so be it.”

You have completed your honouring ritual.”*

And here we have another message of faith. Lose the mind for a night. As Doreen Virtue would say: “Let go and let God.” Stop the worry, the doubt, the fear. Stop fretting and just surrender. Know that you are being assisted. Know that the outcome will be all the better for you stepping away for just a little while. Focus on something else and give your mind a break as things are worked on behind the scenes. Dare to shift your focus completely… even have a little fun and take a break from the responsibilities just for a little while!

I tell my kids to blow their worries into imaginary balloons and release them to the Universe before they go to sleep at night. Anything that is rattling around in their heads, anything that might keep them awake. We have a whiteboard too, so that anything that needs to be accomplished tomorrow can be listed, then released for the evening. This is really helpful for those whose minds immediately fill with a loop of worries as soon as their exhausted heads hit the pillow. Send it off to the angels to sort out for you and ask to wake up with new ideas, solutions and clarity of mind to deal with whatever comes up.

This is also a message about breaking through the self-imposed limitations of the mind that we have been carrying all our lives. Those things that ‘stuck’ with us that others told us about ourselves that are simply not true but we choose to believe them; and  by doing so gave them some sort of twisted truth in our lives. It is about reforming our belief systems; about revamping how we see ourselves and what we are capable of.

It is about finding our joy. About leading with the heart and putting the mind on the back burner for a while while we experience a new freedom of creative expression.

Life is too short to have it any other way.

Namaste

Dee
