The Courage Of Your Love:

“Love is without reason; rationality is like a cane.
Judgment needs a cane, because it is blind.
When love arrives, thought dies in its shadow.
Love is the sunrise, while thought is only a flashing light.”
~ RUMI

“I do not bleat at you like a sheep, for to startle you from your slumber I need to roar like lion! You must awaken my beloved; there is no time to waster for the wolves are circling, hungry for sacred flesh. So I shall roar mightily, and although at first you recoil in fear, soon enough you will see the wolves. You become aware and grateful to have been thus awoken. Ah yes, you remember that you have a precious human life to protect. You fear me no more. You thank me. You jump on my back as if you were a warrior astride a wild mount. You roar then, along with me, awakening the others as we cause the ground to rumble, disturbing those even in their deepest slumber. You, like me, are a fierce lion, not a lamb to be led to so many slaughters, the variety of and opportunity for which is available in terrible abundance in our world.”

“There is a Sufi story about a mother with her breast leaking milk. She loses her child, and once she finds him again, instantly lets him suckle for as long as he needs.

A Sufi master nearby, says to his students, “Do you think she would throw her baby into the fire?”

And the students all say, “No! Of course not!

And the master replies, “Allah loves his children more than she, with enough tenderness to throw them into the fire.”

So it is with love. At first, as a young heart, you want only comfort for your beloved. You cannot bear the thought of pain within them, even for a moment. Your own suffering is easier than bearing the suffering of your beloved. That young heart grows wise through experience. It becomes an elder, an ancient heart tempered by grace and rendered strong with compassion. This is the great heart that can hold the suffering of the world within it, and yet still find space for peace, for sweetness, for tenderness and for rapture.

This is the heart that shines with courageous love. It is willing to feel and bear all suffering without judgment, whilst gently holding it is the truth of what that suffering really is – the drying out of the mind addicted to suffering. This drying out is a challenging and enduring process.

The path of freeing the heart from the effects of a fearful mind is an initiation into great power. So many lapses will happen before the heart grows strong enough to overpower old patterns and surrender without condition or equivocation. When it is ready to surrender in such a way, the heart is free and allowed to simply be. Even the mind then, finally freed from shackles and joyfully submitting to love, declares, “Let love be, in whatever way it shall be. I can bear it. I shall take refuge in it. I shall not turn away from it. I am that love!”

You are an ancient one with a heart older than the mountains. You are being asked to free yourself from the too-small loves of the youthful heart and come to understand and accept the wisdom of your mature heart. Your mature heart is not cured with hardness or detachment, but with compassion and tenacious devotion to the cause that is most real and matters most – the quest for life of the human soul.

Your ancient heart loves the soul and will roar like the lion of love at the wolves that would casually devour it. So trust in the courage of your heart. You are not cruel. You are not hard. You are not careless. You are passion personified. You are the lion of love. So allow yourself to be the lion, not the lamb. Stand true in your own heart. Cause trouble, make noise, be proud and be mighty. Then rest, after all after all that savage divinity, rest and restore, for day after day you shall claim your holy lands and refuse to give them up to less noble creatures. Though you survey their manipulations and attempts to claim power with compassion, you do not underestimate them or relax your vigilance. You shall not allow, for even a moment, that falsehood be vigilance. You shall not allow, for even a moment, that falsehood be accepted as truth in your heart.

This oracle comes with particular guidance for you. You are not to give into less than you are worth, or to the shaming stories of others of our culture that would cast your regal lion nature into the falsehood of beliefs that you have no choice or power. You are not to give into the idea that you are victim and cannot free yourself from your suffering, or that you are less than any other. These are lies. These are petty deceptions so unworthy of you. Do not believe them. Roar at them until the weak glue holding them together melts under the fire of your holy breath, and they lie dismembered and powerless at your feet. Then intend that those bits and pieces in decay are lovingly returned to the Earth Mother through whom they can be used to fertilize new life.

This oracle comes with another message for you. You have a challenge before you (or that you are now moving through), but you have what is necessary to succeed and overcome it. No matter how long it has endured, or how big you have built that challenge up to be in your mind, no matter how unsolvable the issue appears to be, there is and shall be a victory beyond it, and it is imminent. This oracle has come to you to let you know you are empowered to succeed, you have what is required within to do it, and that the time for your victory is drawing near.

So do not give up. Instead, do the sacred honouring ritual as needed, and when you feel so inclined, open your mouth and roar love from the very depths of your being. Create a sound of truth for yourself. In that sound you will hear the mightiest one of all roaring along with you, saying, “Yes love, I am with you, and together we claim divine victory! So we roar! how we roar!”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Say aloud: ‘IO call on RUMI, lion of love, and my own wise higher self. I now choose to assert the dignity of my soul and the power of my heart. I release all lesser bonds based in fear and deception. I no longer need to hold onto these. I am ready for truth and, with unconditional love, I am supported, protected and guided on my path to victory, held in guardianship by the unending power of love. So be it.’

If you feel the need to get down on all fours and roar a bit, do it – with relish. Then, you have finished your honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Whatever you believe about yourself and your circumstances is true. If you want to change it all, change what you believe in and how you see yourself in the world. What you so desire you are blocking by believing that it cannot come true. Your worst fears are confirmed as you look around you in this reality right now. The lack of what you wish for is so very real. The void space it leaves is so tangible, so falsely true.

You can be what you desire to be in this world and no one can stop you from being it. Aim for the stars and lead with your heart. Hold the highest good of All with every focused intention. Be your wild self, shaking off the judgment, releasing the fear, refusing the guilt.

Be you and let them get used to it. Let them feel uncomfortable. And then one day, they will be themselves too.

Namaste

Victory Of Maryam:

“If you are longing to caress the moon,
Don’t turn away from it!
If you are not ill,
why do you crawl under a blanket to hide?

You are in a quarry of sweets.
why do you look so sour?
You live in the spring of life.
why are you withered inside?

Don’t fight against yourself!
Don’t flee from what could be your glory!

Like a fearless moth,
dive into the flame.
Why be linked to your obsessions?

Burn out in the flames,
until your heart and soul are enlightened
Get out of the old carcass
and form yourself a new body.

Why are you afraid of a fox
when you descend from lions?
Why be a lam ass
when you have the strength of stallions?

The beloved you seek will arrive
to open the door to your fortune,
for love is the key
that opens all your locks.”

~RUMI

“You feel you are a mortal and I know you are divine. You feel you are not ready for the task and I know that triumph is only moments away. You reach to me for protection but you are me, and the protection that you seek is already with you. We are not apart. I am living through all that you are and all that you love, all that you have lost and all that you offer to me in surrender. I am in you as your courage and magnificence, and any task I send to you is simply one of the tasks for which you were born. You are an eagle with wings ready to soar. So I push you from the cliff top that you may know yourself.”

“This oracle brings you a message of affirmation and success. Your victory is already assured. You are being led into it now. No matter if you believe it is not possible, and you are placing more faith in the appearance of distraction or obstacle than in utter success. No matter if you have forgotten for a moment that the divine lives in you, as you, and that apparent failure is only a part of the process, the place through which learning happens, serving the ultimate holy victory. Yes, your victory is inevitable.

So you are being given this reminder from the Holy Mother, Mary, also called Maryam, and the beloved divine presence of love that she serves. It is that presence that is real, it is the Holy Mother that is real, it is the Divine in you that is real, and all else swirls around you so your soul can play.

Every challenge and adventure is an opportunity for you to test your mettle and to be what you are in truth. The eagle that flies requires space and open sky. The tigress that hunts requires hunger to drive her to fulfill her being and live her nature. You need what you need to realize your divine nature as a living holy expression of the greatest love. So life is providing for you that your needs be met.

Whatever may be troubling you, or is soon to present itself, is not a situation or a circumstance meant to bring you trouble. You just need to allow yourself to become more eagle-eyed, beloved wild one. It is not what appears to be that is the source of challenge for you, not at all! It is only how you are viewing the situation. Can you allow yourself to shift perspective? Yes, you know this it truth. It is only in forgetfulness that fear creeps in; oh yes, to forget for a moment that you are divinity and to lapse into erroneous belief that the challenges are more real than the love they veil. No, the real challenge is in the attitude, not in any circumstance or situation.

Will you remember that all is divinity manifesting and nothing exists outside of it? All is perfectly designed to help you fulfill your being, live your truth, experience your power and reside in the perfection of your divine loving heart. Be curious rather than afraid. What is loving seeking to draw out of you now? It is always love in interaction with you, even if sometimes you feel like you are hauling a massive rock on your back, up the steepest of all hills to build a temple at its apex. Yet when that temple is built, overlooking the ocean, and a startling burst of golden orange sunset explodes across the water turning it gold, you will forget about climbing that hill. You will just drink in the view instead. You will forget what you were supposed to worry about. Oh don’t you hate it when that happens? You will just have to love that moment and be peaceful instead. It makes more sense to notice the sunset than to turn your back upon its glory and grumble about how heavy those rocks were! Then, in your inspiration and your forgetfulness, you will dream of another temple and the process of creation, perhaps with more lugging about of heavy rocks, and it will begin again. But then so too will another captivating sunset be granted, best witnessed in your newly built temple, that renders you speechless and spellbound.

This oracle brings you guidance and comfort. Whatever is going on in your life right now – whether it brings you joy or deepest struggle – is the Divine in you, as you, breaking through into your life. Do not hesitate to trust in it; embrace it fully and let it have its way. There is nothing there that needs to be resisted. You are safe to be wild, to be alive. Live it with love and let it unfold. The promise of success is yours, so allow yourself to be brought to it through the guiding wisdom of life, the life that serves love.

There is also a part of you that is daring to love, to live and to trust more so than before. You are even daring to quit the traumatic tendency to relive so many past hurts and aches. You no longer want to taunt yourself with failure and critique. You are less frightened of yourself, so you do not need to sabotage yourself anymore. You are learning love’s way and claiming it as your own. That is your path to victory assured.

This oracle asks you to trust in your growing optimism, to let the war be over now and put it behind you, even if it means weeping with sweet sorrow and relief for a while. The sunset is golden. The struggle is behind you. Now, just east and enjoy the golden glow as you rest with love a long, long while.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Don’t let your ego get in the way and spoil all the fun! As usual, it jumps right in and nitpicks everything apart with fear and doubt. Have fun with it! Walk away from the chatter and open your heart, that is the only way you will find out if what is coming is really yours.

Love is in the air, can you feel it? Do not shy away from it, it is what you have been asking for, is it not? Do not hide away your heart; open it and trust. Did you ask your angels to bring you someone special? Then keep your eyes, mind and heart open and make sure that you see them, really see them when they appear. Love comes in many forms, and when you trust that what is yours will come to you, the Universe will take care of all the details, all you have to do is show up!

Don’t buy into the what ifs.. don’t allow self-criticism to block the way. Just breathe into it. Expand your heart, your mind, your awareness. Send love to the one inside you who is so worried that you might miss out, that  one who keeps you worrying about whether you will stay alone after all. Bless and release all the worry, the pain, the doubt, the fear. Only allow the love to penetrate your body, mind and spirit.

These are exciting times, and there is a brand new year right around the corner. Things are transforming in ways that you can only imagine… so go ahead and imagine the very best!

Love is imminent

The Angel Razbar

Published June 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Angel Razbar, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Angel Razbar, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

The Angel Razbar:

“Tell me the truth,” I asked love,
“What are you?”
“I am the everlasting life,” love said,
“I am the recurring joy of living.”

~ RUMI

“The master speaks of a den of riches, where many precious jewels can be found. In abundance they lie, patient and yet ready to be claimed.

‘Go, scoop them up! urges the master. The devoted ones look but cannot see.

‘Where are these precious jewels’?’ they cry, ‘for we cannot find them anywhere!’

The master gazes lovingly at the devoted ones and responds, kindly, ‘In service, my beloveds, you shall find the jewels through service. For what is the soul but the finest and most precious of heavenly jewels? What is service but the scooping up of the soul that it does not lie lost, nor unclaimed, but instead honoured for all its precious worth and beauty, tended to until it becomes vibrant as a flawless ruby, radiant with the joy of living.”

“Divine contribution is offered to those who wish to contribute to the world. The Great Beloved sees what is in your heart, what it is you wish to offer, and is saying, “Yes!”

So, you are being empowered to serve, to assist, to offer a genuine spiritual contribution to this planet, to become a sacred hand at work for the will of heaven. Such is the capacity bestowed upon the soul that is wise and filled with love and therefore desiring to serve. So then, do not doubt yourself, beloved. You have been blessed with this by the master to find the precious jewel of your own soul and claim it! Cast aside your doubts then.

Yet perhaps this is not easy for you to do. Perhaps you look at the world, even your chosen field of endeavour, and already you hear so many voices speaking. You may wonder if your own contribution would simply add noise to the cacophony. You may wonder if you can really help, if you have anything genuine to add, or if there is just too much noise anyway! You may hesitate and become fearful. Do not despair, my beloved. It is part of your divine destiny to add something of great value to the world, something that has its place even amongst all that activity, something needed absolutely in the hearts of all.

The precious gift is the true silence. The true silence is peace. It is the living experience of the eternal love of the Divine that asks nothing but to be received and gives of itself unconditionally. That silence is present underneath even the most raucous noise, if one knows how to access it. The true silence can only be felt through the beautiful, feeling heart. When you know how to feel for it, to surrender into it, you can transmit silence in many ways: through the peace you cultivate in your heart in your own daily living, through your presence, through your art, even through your voice written, sung or spoken. Yes, even through sound is if that is your path of service. Silence can emanate through your voice, and divine silence can be felt in the hearts of others. the true and great silence – as you may now realize my dear angel – is no the absence of sound, it is the experience of the divine presence of love.

So, shall you trust in your wisdom of the master who bids you to serve, to serve according to the graces you have been given? Will you choose to put aside your doubts, and instead believe in yourself and the power of divine love that will reach out to the world through your willing soul? Ah yes, I knew your brave heart would accept this empowerment. I knew you wanted to serve more than you wanted to fear.

Whatever is in your heart is the method by which the great jewels shall be collected. The master teaches us that we are built to serve according to a higher perfection. So if to dance is in your heart, then dance. Be open and free; do not hide – dance. If prayer is in your heart, then pray. If you can feed the poor with food, if you can give the despairing kindness, those lost your words, and those who have turned away from the Great Master a healing touch, then do so. Do so without doubt, without having to be the best or the greatest, or any other notion your mind conjures – just be willing. Willingness, not perfection, is required from you, so then there is room for freedom to awaken in you. Willingness opens you to divine assistance and, through that empowerment, an even greater joy of being will grow within your sacred heart. Your service can flow from simply being yourself in the world, completely and utterly. Your radiance can become one of the sacred candles of the Holy Master. There are many candles that hold the master’s light, and yet each one of them is precious beyond compare. Be such a light.

Scoop up the jewels through your service, and do not render yourself incapable through nightmares of false imaginings and smallness of mind. Yes, your heart is too big for your mind and it will break it open, but that is okay. Do you think you only serve love and are not also served by love? The helpers are always helped; this is love’s way. Do you feel as though you are a foreigner in this land? Ah, Angel Razbar shall show you the way then, for she knows you from a long, long time ago, through you might have temporarily forgotten the acquaintance. She is a great hostess and guide in this terrain of divine love and she remembers you; you, who are great of heart and capable of contribution; you, who are now signing up for service in the great work of love. Yes, there is work for you to do. Your purpose is bestowed. Serve, assist – do not hold back for any reason. Not one reason you could imagine is worthy of you. So then, aliveness; so then, service; so then, joy. Help and be helped – that is the way for you now.

This oracle comes to you with guidance. You are being guided deeper into your life purpose and divine destiny. Like a maturing adult who is ready to take on the mantle of a greater responsibility, your soul is stepping up. You are going through a process of assuming more spiritual responsibility for the honest and empowered expression of your own essence, and through that, your healing presence in the world is increasing. You are stepping up and forward on to your path. This is appropriate now. It will make you more visible, but that is as it should be. It is not about being worth more than another. It is about the utterly sensible use of a light, that it not be dampened down by a shade, but instead be placed where it can cast its fullness so that others, still in darkness, may find their way more easily. This is efficient, intelligent and sensible. Your success and growth is drenched in compassion and brings joy to the heart of the master, as another and another find their way, benefiting from the light of your being. So shine true; be humble but not dismissive of your gifts. Allow others to find their way more easily because you choose to honour the power of the great silence that emanates through you evermore as you trust and surrender.

This oracle brings special messages of reassurance that you are making progress and are indeed on the right path. Although it may not unfold exactly as you anticipate, it will indeed unfold! You are making a positive impact on the world – more than you consciously realize – and you are asked therefore to continue. Do not give up. Do not turn back, just continue. Take your steps, your journey, and know that the Great Master is aware of you, and is sending the old ones, including that wise ancient mother, Angel Razbar, to bring you the blessing of the true silence, now. Let it clear and soothe your mind and heart, and help you remember the peace that dwells within you. All is well.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Say aloud: I am blessed to serve the great, all-loving silence through the presence of divine joy, grace and radiant compassion, through the master that loves me without condition, and the blessed assistance of Angel Razbar who loves me unconditionally. I accept all help and I offer myself completely in service to life, to being, and to assist humanity in a practical way, according to the graces and talents I have been given. So be it!”

If  you can comfortable place your forehead on the floor, bowing to the earth, do so.

Rest there for several moments. Then, you have finished your honouring ritual.”*

First we discover our gifts. Then we align with our live purpose. Finally, we step boldly into the world to share what is ours to share; in the hopes that it helps someone who needs our help, that we can become of service, that we can give back as we receive. The cycle is perfect; complete. It can spin infinitely now.

Part of your gift is the gift of simply being you in the world. Being you with all of your life experiences. All your pain, all your sorrow, all our hope and all your dreams. Your joy, your peace and your fulfillment. All those are part of your gift. This is how you find your compassionate heart. Your sacred heart. The heart which can heal, just by being close to another; in the vicinity, in the same room.

The love you have within you is your greatest gift, and as you give of it, you will realize just how deep the well runs. You are filled with an infinite abundance of Unconditional Love. All you need to do is allow yourself to find it deep within you.

This love can heal. It can awaken. It can illuminate. It will ascend. This love is the key to everything. It is your gift and your legacy.

Find it. Step fully into it. Share it with the world.

I Am Love

Hand Of Fatimah

Published March 25, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hand Of Fatimah, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hand Of Fatimah, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Hand Of Fatimah:

“I can never leave you,
not for a moment,
not for an hour.
You are in everything I do.
You are my everything.

My drink is your sweetness.
I move to your command.
I am a surrendered prey in your hands,
and you are my consuming lion.

Your soul and my soul
are truly One Soul.
I swear to our One Soul,
I long for no one but you.

In the garden of your grace,
I am only a germinating sprout.
The crown of my blooming
is the desire to be in your arms.”

~ RUMI

“My hand watches over you. It brings you blessings and comfort, protection and grace. Radiant with divinity am I, and you are my child, my beloved, my angel and my body too. I shall never leave you. Turn your inner eye to me and see the light of my grace in your heart. You cannot be harmed. You cannot be defiled. You can only ever be what you are – me, alive, radiant with love.”

“You are giving birth to more spirit than you have ever held before. During such times, a divine midwife can be helpful and supportive. This is Fatimah, Radiant Daughter of the Great Beloved, who reaches from the skies, who reaches up from within your body from deep within the earth, and brings you the gift of protection, grace and love. You are safe. You are held and you are bound within her warmth. She has received your prayers and she honours your devotion to life, to love and to growth.

She will help you. Ask for her blessing daily. You can use the simple sacred honouring ritual to do so if you need guidance on how to pray to her, but any words from your heart spoken in authenticity will suffice, no matter how simple or ornate they may be. She responds to the feeling behind the words and she responds instantly, beyond time and space; in fact, she has responded even now, perhaps before you even knew she was needed.

This oracle brings you the guidance that what is being born in your life right now, in our own consciousness as a seed – perhaps of a new way of being, a new idea, belief system, philosophy or sense of self – is going to come to maturity under the loving protection of the Divine Mother.

You are also being asked to heed your intuition and instincts. Have some discernment about who you involve yourself with an dhow you choose to use your time and energy. Allow yourself to feel Fatimah’s guidance and comfort in you by giving yourself permission to be nurtured – through your own choices and the people or situations you say yes or no to  in your life. This is a way to honour her presence ad allow her to help you, which she wishes to do in all ways possible. Love is all things you see, dearest angel, and that means saying no can mean saying yes to something greater. So give yourself permission to say your no and yes as dictated by your heart.

This oracle also brings you the message that your body is sacred and worth your attention. You do not have to become obsessed, you do not have to push or judge your body, but you can honour him or her as a sacred animal through which your spirit creates soul and expresses itself in the world. This is a truly wonderful and amazing gift, extraordinary and yet fraught with challenge. The spirit can be powerful – sometimes it can be hesitant too – enough to really engage with the body and ‘come to life’.

There is a story that the angels sang music to lure the spirit into the body, but used to its freedom, it was reluctant to experience itself in what looked like rather confining matter! The spirit did not know that Fatimah would be initiating the spirit into her mysteries through the body. She was going to be sharing the sensuality of life, the sacredness of love, the deep mystery of life, death and rebirth, and the wonders of nature. She was going to show the Divine could live not only in light but also in flesh.

Fatimah holds the wildness of divine feminine wisdom and the sanctity of life. She has great gifts of ecstatic presence only able to be experienced through the spirit living in the body. She will share this if you allow her to guide you. Once the spirit recognizes this, even just gets a whiff of Fatimah’s glorious fragrance, the enthusiasm for life ignites, and the wonders of the world experienced through the body become a way to revere the Great Beloved, and turn all of life into the temple of love.

This oracle also comes with guidance. Giving your body rest and healing is most beneficial at this time. There are symptoms you are experiencing – anything from fuzzy-headedness to tiredness and aches and pains, as well as shifts in body temperatures that seem unbalanced – and these are directly related, if not solely, to the interaction of your spiritual essence with your sacred animal body. These will even out under Fatimah’s grace and protection, life two housemates learning to live together and enhance each other, rather than distract and annoy each other with their quirks and differences. This settling in process will happen all the more easily when you ask for Fatimahs’s help.

This oracle also advises that if you ask for help and protection in any matter, it will be granted. There is no exception to this rule. There is noting you have done that has made you unworthy of divine intervention, grace and love. Not one thing, ever. Ask, trust and receive.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual:

“Place one hand on your heart and one on your belly, and say the following aloud:
‘Fatimah, who loves me unconditionally, bless me with your hand of protection and your radiant grace. May I love my body and live my divinity in totality.
My spirit is my body. My body is my spirit.
Arwahuna
ajsaduna
wa-ajsduna
arwahuna.’
Repeat, slowly and carefully, three times, then rest if you wish to. When you are ready, you have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

We are undergoing a process of the integration of body, mind and spirit. We are no longer separated from our higher selves, our Light bodies are a part of our physical bodies and we are taking on more and more light as the process continues. At this time it is absolutely vital that we honour our bodies as the sacred temples that they are, as the old saying goes ‘If you do not have your body, where will you live?’

You will find your tastes are changing in many ways. Honour this shift. You may be drawn to drink more pure water, less sugary, caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. You may not desire to eat as much meat, if any at all. You are or soon will be drawn to natural fruits and vegetables; foods which hold the most ‘prana’ or life energy. You need less to satiate you and will tend to eat smaller portions throughout the day.

Your sleep patterns are changing. Honour this. Whenever possible, sleep when you are tired. Listen to the rhythms of your body. Take a break when you need to, even a short one. Breathe deeply. Pay close attention to your dreamtime.

Watch where you place your energy and intention, and whom you choose to spend your time with. Stay away from toxic people as much as possible, even if this means making some significant changes in your life. You will find yourself more sensitive to the energies of the people around you. Honour this. Step back from those who do not hold the highest intention. Refuse to participate in gossip, judgment or exclusion.

Spend time alone whenever possible. Meditate. Do yoga. Breathe. Heal yourself.

You are changing, shifting, transforming. Some of this will be out of your comfort zone. Embrace it. Allow it. Receive it. And know that all is well. All is in perfect Divine Order.

The All-Encompassing Hand:

“You are the essence of my existence;
Who am I? A mirror in your hand!
Whatever you do, I will do.
I am your irresistible reflection.

With every breath, I feel
my heart is beating with yours.
In your joy, I am exuberant!
In your sadness, I am in sorrow.
If you are bitter, I become bitter.
If you are grace, I become grace.
My joy is when I am bewildered in your beauty
and taste the sweetness of love on your lips.

If I pick a rose without you,
it becomes a thorn in my hand.
If I am the thorn,
I become the rose in your hand.

~ RUMI

“I have held your hand in mine for so long that I have long since ceased to distinguish where your sacred flesh once felt separate from mine. This sacred grasp pulses with love divine, and there is one hand, holding and held, one being, loving and loved, though we may appear by less ecstatic angels to be two. The love that gives us this handfast, beloved, is so powerful we could spin the entire universe upon its axis, and still our hands would be joined, gently and yet enduringly, in unfailing love and sublime friendship.”

“Perhaps you are in need of reassurance, dearest one. Perhaps you have been feeling somewhat alone on your path, or struggling with a matter deep within your precious, beautiful heart and speaking of it to no one. Such loneliness that can foster in the heart! With no other to bear witness to your life experience, you may question your life, your sanity, your truths, and create doubt where no doubt need be. This must stop now. You are worthy of so much more, and this suffering is not essential for your growth now. It is time to let it be and to open up to the touch of grace.

So this oracle comes to you as the hand of the Divine. It is the all-encompassing hand, the hand that has no limitation upon the blessings it can bestow, upon the troubles it can lift from you, upon the tenderness it can communicate to you through sacred touch. Allow that divine hand to reach for you, beloved. Do not turn it away. Do not let old shame, guilt or mistaken notions of false independence keep you from accepting this heavenly hand! This hand reaches to gently wipe away tears of the past. It will deftly unravel the ties that have bound your own hands, preventing you from fully giving and receiving according to your worth which is incontestable and without limit.

This divine hand will reach for you in your meditations, your sleep and your prayers. It will reach for you through life circumstances, through the smile or hug you receive from another, or the touch of another human being. It will reach you through the song of a bird, the falling of leaves, the soft fur of a beloved pet, through song lyrics that seem to speak what you are feeling deep inside, or the colourful dress of the stranger across the street who catches your eye and makes you smile. This divine hand is reaching for you now through this oracle.

‘Yes,’ says the Great Beloved, ‘I am reaching for you. Yes, I know you – you are my own! I would never abandon you! Perhaps you have turned from me unknowingly, forgotten how much I love you because the world is in a forgetful daze too, and ignores the caress of the breeze, the joyful acknowledgment of every sunrise and the reverence made radiant in every sunset. Life is the touch bestowed by my hand. Shall you receive me? Let me love you! Let me restore your soul and remind you there is nothing to fear now. Come; lay down your weapons and your fear for this moment. Quit using that mouth to cry for war or to cry in despair. Bring yourself to my table and use that mouth to taste some bold and rich wine instead. Enjoy with me, in this moment, the unbreakable bond that lies between us. Allow me to bring the cup of wine to your lips. Behind your head, so gently, lies my all-encompassing hand. Know the peace of my love; so deeply can it register with you now, that you shall never again forget it.’

This oracle comes with a particular message for you. There may be a situation or circumstance in your life that you may feel is somehow unable to be solved. This oracle comes with reassurance that there is nothing beyond the reach of the divine hand of grace. All can be solved, all can be resolved; there is always a higher, better, more beautiful outcome possible.

You are asked to pray using the sacred honouring ritual, and to do so with conviction. The Divine has this situation ‘in hand’ and all is unfolding as it should be. Ask for help each day by saying: ‘I ask for help this day, in all ways, through unconditional love. Thank you.’

You can be more specific in your request, asking for help in a particular relationship, or project too if you wish. The Divine wants to ‘lend you a hand.’ You must ask for help first however – so ask. Empower that all-powerful hand of grace to bless your life and all circumstances, relationships and situations that have been or are yet to be for you.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place one hand resting upon the other with palms joined together.

Say aloud: ‘Through the loving grace of RUMI, brother of my soul who loves me without condition, these hands are now blessed as the hands of the lover and the beloved, as the one divine hand, all-encompassing. I am blessed, protected, nurtured and received. I am touched by the Divine with compassionate mercy and loving tenderness. I call on the hand of grace to touch, heal, bless and protect all aspects of myself and my life journey. Through divine grace, so be it.’

Simply rest with your hands in the same posture for several moments, then finish your ritual.

If you wish, you may continue by speaking in prayer to the Divine and offer up any issue or concern you have. Give it a voice; it doesn’t matter how small or major the issue may seem. Talk it over with the Great Beloved, a wonderful and responsive listener!

When you are finished, place your hands in prayer, bow your head, and simply say thank you. You have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

You are loved. You are supported. You are protected. Nothing can stand in the way of what is yours; the opportunities that you feel you  have missed, the mistakes that you have made, and the pain that you have suffered is all in the past. Blockages are being removed. Belief systems are changing. The old is being released. A new chapter of your life is unfolding.

All IS Well.

No matter what the past looked like; and even the present situation, things are changing, transmuting and transforming into something new. Doors are being flung open. People are coming into your life, filling the spaces that others left open when you parted. You heart is ready for much more love than it has ever experienced; more joy than it ever thought possible.

There may be some discomfort first, as we break free from this reality, but do not worry, Dear One, I am holding your hand in mine. We will navigate this new world together.

Namaste

The Lion and The Deer

The Lion and The Deer:

“When you enter the garden of the heart,
you become fragrant like the rose.

When you fly toward Heaven,
you become graceful like the angel.

If you get burned like oil,
you become brilliant.

When you become thin like hair in yearning,
your joy leads the way.

You’ll be the kingdom and the king.
You’ll be paradise and the guardian angel.
You’ll be infidelity, and you’ll be faith.
You’ll be the lion, and you’ll be the deer.”

~RUMI

“You are the lion and the deer. You are bold, fierce, and vibrant, and you are silent, sweet and gentle. If I should come to you in arrogance you roar at me until my falsehood quakes in fear, so terrified it gives up the game and love’s conquest happens yet again! If I should come to you in surrendered adoration, open to whatever you may wish, you are so gentle with me. Like a deer, you offer me nothing to fear or resist so that I too become sweet and gentle, longing to submit to your tender ministrations.

So then, I do not fear my own errors. For even if I stumble into arrogance, I shall be made wiser by your magnificent roar and become humble. Even if I become weak, I shall draw succour evoking the tenderness in you. Whatever is needed to keep me true, true to love, is what you give me. For you are the holy lion, proud and mighty, and the sweet deer, gentle as the mildest breezes of spring.”

“Hello my old friend. Do you remember me? We are the oldest of friends; ancient soul mates we are, acquainted over many lifetimes past and through many lessons earned together in the school of love. So here we meet again, in this advance spiritual training of the human experience, with the earth as our classroom. The moment is upon us to leave behind what we have once known, and to open up to the great mystery of life again. Our souls leapt from the divine oneness through the river of forgetfulness and now dive into a body and a life. What journey that leap begins!

Let us embark on this studious adventure together. Let us honour the tiger and the lamb within each other, the lion and the deer. I can witness in you both the raging warrior who fights with the unbreakable honour, and the healer who brings together those things torn apart. Of course! For are we not all things? Are we not human and angel, animal and spirit? Are we not heaven and earth? Are we not divine? And in being divine, being all things, all things are divine.

So we are here together in the school of love; not for the soul who still adheres to preference instead of curiosity, not for the soul who craves comfort instead of devotion to divine adventure. We must be like lovers, you and I, if we are to take these lessons. We must be willing to become mad with passion, crazy enough to chase the Great Beloved, even if it means forgetting who we are for a time to have the sacred delight of rediscovery, breaking some rules and looking like fools. Well what could be greater than becoming a fool for love? That will do for us,; that will do well. Let us be fools for love, together.

So shall we become study mates? We’ll recognize each other, even in all of our varied garbs, bright or sombre, wild or gentle. We’ll become the most enthusiastic students in the school of love, urging each other on to ever greater feats of passion and devotion. How we shall outdo each other in grand gestures and our unwavering commitment.

This oracle brings you a special message: you are rediscovering a part of yourself that has been lost or submerged underneath ‘more practical’ concerns. Of course, if practicality is about survival then learning to be your true self is most essential and practical! All other paths lead to death of the soul!

You are asked to bear the chaos of this rediscovery. It may be that talents from this or other lifetimes are reawakened and cause you some discomfort at first, even though they will ultimately bring joy and greater fulfillment. The discomfort may be around how those talents are best expressed, about overcoming shame, guilt, doubt or other judgments. It may even be about who you are, if you now admit your talent or other emerging personality traits. Perhaps what is being unearthed in you now is darker – your sacred rage, refusal to accept disrespect in your life, your inability to tolerate lies and deceptions. Well then, you are the lion, and the deer. That is nature. There is to be both in the world. You are not becoming contradictory or hypocritical. You are becoming whole.

The guidance this oracle brings you is that you shall prosper most now if  you are willing to unbecome what you have believed yourself to be. It was never really true anyway, that view. It was partial at best; and just a view, an identity, not a genuine reality. Some of your previous sense of self shall likely come with this transition into the fuller experience of your being, and some of that previous identity shall be shed as far too limiting. It just won’t feel true for you anymore, if it ever did.

Any crisis or confusion this brings you shall be temporary fuel to ignite the divine fires within. They simmer into life, cooling you from within, bringing all of your flavours, spicy and sweet, bitter and sour, into perfect balance so that your being, your presence, becomes an exquisite dish served up as a divine feast. You shall become nourishment for the world, in perfect balance. Your being will hold all, for it holds all within it. It will deny nothing, and become a tonic to feed every taste, every appetite, every hunger and every deficiency. What an extraordinary sublime meal you shall be! How your presence shall nourish the world!

And it all begins with shedding the ‘either’ and the ‘or’ and recognizing instead the ‘all.’ With such wild permission for unconditional love you shall thrive in your beingness and feed the hungry world with a meal complete, satisfying and exquisite.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

As we come together collectively as a whole we also integrate the energies on an individual basis. Each one of us will go through a rite of passage; to some it will be earth shattering and life changing, things will never be the same. For others it will be a subtle shift and will only really fully show later when they realize that they are no longer the same person they once were. And yet as we unravel the social conditioning, the belief systems, the limiting thought patterns and the old habits, finally we find our strength and freedom. Now we can be who we truly are.

There is no attachment to the past here, only fond memories of life experiences and lessons learned. Pain is nurtured and healed. The thousand petaled lotus is blooming and blooming; we are opening up in ways we never even thought possible. DNA is shifting, opening, activating. Body, mind and spirit together are ascending. Everything is transforming; altering.

Truth leads the way. There is absolutely no room for deception,  it is too dense and heavy, it cannot survive the high vibrational reality. Higher hearts are opening, chakras and energy centers are aligning. Everything looks and feels different. Everything finally starts to make sense.

And no one is left behind as we travel up through the higher realms, they may be slower but they too will get there.

The awakening is underway.

Namaste

Blood Angel

Blood Angel:

“In the midst of the darkness,
a moon appeared with its brilliance.
Stepping down from the clouds,
It glanced at me.
Like a falcon
that hunts a bird and steals it away,
it captured me
and flew back to infinite space.
As I looked for myself,
I could not find me,
for my body had become all soul
in the tenderness of love.

The nine spheres of heaven
dissolved in that moon
as the shop of my existence
drowned in the sea of love.”

~RUMI

“Do you dare place a limit on how much life you can contain? I pour of myself into your heart and invite you to become nothing and everything, with me. Let us be the sunrise that greets the new day and the sunset that honours the dying of the day, in radiant glory. Let us be the angel of light arising from darkness and the starburst in the awakening heart of a human, beloved. Be the moon at the back of my heart and the sun at the front of my heart. Be wordless and wise. Let us have nothing that we know for certain and be content. Let us be all and let us be nothing. Let us be.”

“The oracle of the Blood Angel comes to you with a particular message; you are being given the gift of more life. You may experience this as growth, expansion, more energy, more life force or divine electricity circulating through your system. The Blood Angel understands that in the gift of greater life, which enables a soul to live more of its essence, becoming a more palpable divine presence upon this earth, there ware many unavoidable experiences. One of these is that there will be more sunsets to counter the increases in your sunrises! This is about balance. When opening up to receive more, one needs to empty out what has been to allow for a new influx of energy. It is not about an exchange of equal measure, for you will receive according to the great generosity of life itself, and thus even more shall be offered in the compensation for what you are willing to release. However, release must take place. Balance is the natural law. The sunset makes way for a time of night – that might be the darkness of grief, or the stirring of unknown places within that only reveal themselves in clarity the following morning. Being ready to endure the sunset and the night to become ready to receive the sunrise – and with it more life – is your divine task now.

Why is this coming to you? You are ready for it. You have outgrown what has been and it cannot satisfy your soul anymore. A part of you – your mind perhaps – may question whether or not you really want the change inherent in this oracle, divine gift or not! You may prefer that things remain the same, but what you are really wanting in that belief? Happiness? A sense of safety and security Love? Remember, that in any divine gift – no matter whether it seems to come at first through an obvious bestowal of grace, such as a wish coming true or a prayer being answered, or through a hidden grace of a loss of ending in our lives – there is always an offering of greater life within it. The Blood Angel tells you to not make yourself too small for what is happening in your soul and life now by holding onto what you know, or holding on when it is better to let go. It may not be easy, but you will gain more trust in the Divine, in you, in life, and great power and heavenly play can and will flow through your soul into the world. The Blood Angel invites you to accept the genius of life and allow it to flow through you, circulating your divine light even more abundantly into the world around you.

This oracle comes with a particular blessing of well being and vitality. You have perhaps become tired, or are well but seek to engage in new projects or practices that will stretch or challenge you. The Blood Angel brings you the blessing of whatever energy is required to expand into where life is leading you. What the Divine has instilled within your heart shall be financed with life force and energy so it may be brought to fulfillment. This is the sacred contract of human life. The journey shall be taken by the soul, and there will be challenges, and yet what is required for divine fulfillment will always be available.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

How much space do you take up in the Universe? And how much space does the Universe take up in You? It is time to expand, Dear One.

Breath deeper, slower, more mindfully. Take time to be in the present moment. Be here now, always.

Stretch up physically, take up more space; make more space. Open your arms wide and feel your heart open too. Expand your mind and expand your consciousness. There is so much more to be experienced. Open your palms up to the sky. Lean back if you are able, open your heart to the sky.

Invite in more and more Light. Fill every cell. Yes, you are more than capable. Do you remember?

Invite in more and more Love. Be that Love. Send it out into the world, healing. Yes, you came here for that, it is part of you.

In order to remember and step into the next phase repeat this mantra as often as possible throughout your day, particularly when meditating, outdoors in nature, deep breathing, or doing yoga:

I AM LOVE. I AM Light. I AM Healing. I AM Healed.

And so it is you step into your True Divine Purpose

Namaste
