“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.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

The Human Gift:

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

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

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

~ RUMI

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You have finished your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

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

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

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

Namaste

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

One:

“I have abolished duality from myself.
I have seen the two worlds as One!
One I seek, One I know,
One I see, and One I call.”

~ By RUMI

“You look for me and what do you see? You! Am I playing games with you? Holding up a mirror for you to behold God? Yes! These are games of love and truth. Look for me and find yourself, for I am you and you are me, and together we are one, playing hide and seek in love’s great playground.”

“Like molten gold, poured from the furnace of divine love into a one of a kind mold, you are created uniquely and of divine essence. You are both the lover and the beloved. There is no aspect of your life separate from your spiritual journey, and there is no aspect of you that is not of divine origin. So then why the frowning, the fear or the questioning? Let me share a sublime secret with you; let me whisper it into your heart now. There is nothing to fear. All is unfolding according to the divine genius and there is a sweet shift in store for you. No matter how dire circumstances may appear to be or despairing you may feel, there is still an avenue through which fulfillment and resolution will be granted. This will happen! That is because the Divine seeks wholeness of the one. That means anything and every part of existence (and that includes you and all aspects of your being and life) is claimed by the Divine. Your return to the Divine keeps rigorous, flawless accounts. Therefore, nothing shall be left unaccounted for – not even that which seems to be outside divine attention and grace at this moment.

You must remember that you are a living heart, the dweller at the center between heaven and earth, star and soil, light and dark. If you cannot summon the joy to rise up and meet the Divine Beloved, fear not. That cunning lover lies deep within the depths waiting to gather you into sacred embrace as you descend into the darkness. Either through flying or falling, you shall be caught and tangled up in divine embrace. So fear not. Cast aside worry and concern. Know that you are thoroughly itemized on the divine ledger and not one moment of your struggle or suffering shall miss the hawk-like gaze of the ever-attentive and heavenly beloved.

This oracle comes to you with particular guidance. There is a friction or conflict within you or your life right now, a sense perhaps of being pulled in more than one direction and confusion because of this. You are questioning; which path to take, this way or that? What if you choose this path and it turns out the other would have been better? But how can you know now what choice, if any, is most needed in your life? So many questions! Your mind is scurrying! There is no other word for it! Backwards and forwards it goes, to and fro, trying to settle upon the truth. I love you too much to allow this to continue unchecked. Surrender it. Give it up. The truth you seek is this: You shall be.

You shall manifest your destiny just as the acorn grows into the oak tree. You cannot be other than what you are and as you accept this, life responds. It breathes and relaxes around you so what you need can come to you more easily. It finds you, drawn to the need in you that is natural and inviting, and not a cause for anxiety or distress. The need leads to satiety. What is desired and what fulfills that desire is one. They are lovers that come to each other naturally, even though darkness and confusion, drawn to each other, following the natural course of the universe to become one.

So do not fret and fear, my beloved. Do not hold back from that which feels incomplete out of anxiety or distress. It is just the lover that will soon be joined by the beloved. Do not hold back from that which feels incomplete out of anxiety or distress. It is just the lover that will soon be joined by the beloved. You are not recognizing the moment before this occurs. So fret not, and instead, let that inner lover loose! Allow her to shake out her hair, put on her most sensuous perfume, and laugh as she dances barefoot in fields of lush grass and fragrant flower. Let her tempt her beloved to come close because she can be seen, she can be heard; her movement sends her scent through the air. She entices the yearning beloved to her. And soon enough they meet, and it becomes possible for, yet again, two to become one, and then there will be wild peace and ecstatic contentment within you.

If there is any part of you struggling to surrender the conflict between old and new, between what has been and what needs to be, between passion and duty, creativity and rationality, between this role or identity, then know this: even the conflict serves. Don’t choose either one and believe it is the answer. Sometimes the sacrifice is not one or the other, but the idea that it can be only one or the other! At another level, a level of divine resolution, there is beyond the apparent polarity and conflict a third way, the rising up to where there is only one perfection taking place constantly. Open your heart; you will find the bridge to understanding and trusting in that perfection there, where it has always been and will always be. Don’t worry. All is happening exactly as it should.

This oracle brings you particular guidance. There is a resolution and a perfect ‘coming together’ of elements in your life that might have seemed disparate or in conflict. Something you have been trying to integrate is so very nearly ready to ‘click’ into place. Perform the sacred honouring ritual and stay with your process. The coherence, the integration, the balance and coming together you seek is on your horizon, approaching you swiftly now.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands at your heart and say aloud: ‘Rumi, who loves me unconditionally, I gaze into my heart and you are there! I gaze into your heart and see my own face! We are one. This oneness is contagious! May it swiftly affect every aspect of my inner world so that my outer existence aligns gently with perfect harmony with the great Divine Beloved. You and I are one with eh perfection of divinity unfolding, now and always. Through grace and my own free will, so be it.’

When you are ready, place your hands in prayer position and bow your head in reverence and recognition to the one divine plan unfolding. Say: ‘I surrender into the one truth of divine perfection which includes my own divine destiny now. Through mercy and grace, so be it.’

When you are ready, simply close your eyes and bow your head again. Then you have completed your ritual.”

~ By Alana Fairchild

It’s so easy to give up hope when things are not moving quickly in the direction of our desired outcome. Maybe we have been doing everything in our power to try and make something come to fruition.. to no avail. We might be losing hope, giving up or getting frustrated. We might be starting to lament; telling others how things aren’t going our way. Maybe we start changing our minds, weighing our options, getting dangerously close to repeating old patterns. We might be getting so caught up in what isn’t happening, that we forget to loosen up a little and just let it all Be.

So, now we have a message that things are in fact progressing nicely. That everything is turning out exactly as planned. That what you desire so fervently is manifesting itself as you read this. It is just a matter of receptivity, surrender and release of control of the if’s, when’s and how’s.

Take a little break from the hard work of focus and intention and have some fun instead! Raising your vibration doing something completely different from the task in front of you will actually help you get where you need to be. Being playful, taking a little time out to have dinner out with friends, take a dance class, find a way that feels right to you to socialize and be free. Or enjoy some time alone, listening to your favourite music, watching a funny movie or enjoying a relaxing bath; maybe try a guided meditation to take your mind off things.

Using affirmations and mindfulness, keep your thoughts as uplifted as possible while you wait for what is yours to come to you.

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.”*

~ Alana Fairchild

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

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

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:

“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

The Courage Of Your Love

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Courage Of Your Love, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

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.”*

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
