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

Whirling Goddess

Whirling Goddess:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You have completed your honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

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

Published September 23, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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.”*

~ 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

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Victory Of Maryam, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli

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

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother

Published August 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Passion Of The Wild Red Mother, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Rassouli

Passion Of The Wild Red Mother: “Don’t ask the conscious ones about the wine. Behold the glowing effect of it in the eyes of drunks.” ~ RUMI

“Bring me your unreasonableness, your insanity, your love without reason and your passion – the passion that makes you crazy and shoos all logical restraint from your mind. Leave your ordered thoughts, sensible plans and appropriate attire at my door. Put on your animal fur and sing to me in gibberish. When my beautiful goats die, I make drums from their skins and their spirits live on in my passionate play. When my birds drop their feathers, I gather them and put them in my hair. Come drum with me, as I place feathers in your hair and we honour the spirits of my animals – of your animal nature too, wild and free as you are in truth. Stick your tongue out and growl at those who try to tame you with guilt, shame and fear. Do you think I gave a damn for any of their silly games? Those games of reason and logic. “Of course, you should do it this way,” they say, “it makes sense!” But I care not for what makes sense; I care for what brings you alive.”

You, oh blazing angel, are being invited by the Wild Red Mother to participate in a dance of divine passion. You may be an activist, a poet, an advocate for justice, or a writer, a healer, devoted to the liberation of the suffering of others and hungry to commune with ancient wisdom. Perhaps you are all of these, or some other exquisite amalgam of holy energy in form. Whatever your nature, there is passion in your heart; a fire for something more powerful than fear that can become the fuel for your life journey – if you accept the invitation of The Wild Red Mother of course!

This is the invitation to lay aside despair, to lay aside doubt in the capacity of the human heart – even your frustration and impatience. It is time to quit whipping yourself and others, no matter how noble the intention behind the whip may be and start dancing instead.

Will you join her, the Wild Red Mother, in her exuberant play? You can choose to lead through joy, to heal through love, to transform suffering into what it is mean to be; the crucible through which ecstasy reveals itself. You do not have to analyze, to stay in the throws of process and ordered stages. You can just choose this passionate path now, if you wish. You are ready. It is open to you. Will you accept?

It takes a great spirit, one with much practice of studied rebellion, to be ready to cast off the shackles of society from a place of loving defiance rather than fearful anger. And to playfully say to the world, “I have tasted your stale bread and underdeveloped wine, and have had quite enough now. I decline your offer to gorge upon such lesser fruits. I prefer to feast upon bread, hot and fresh, and wine that is mouth-filling and unctuous. Join me if you like. It is an abundant feast and there is plenty for all.”

Even in the spiritually-minded there can be a driving fear, thinly veiled as devotion to the most arduous path. Perhaps for a while that serves as a truth of sorts, but eventually there will come a time when smaller truths must give way to larger ones, so the soul can truly be free to grow.

Passion is the bridge that leads you from a smaller truth that suffering is necessary in order to heal, towards a larger and more luscious experience of life as a divine embrace. Yes, sometimes the divine lover, in all enthusiasm for the sport, bites you too hard or grabs you with so much desire that a bruise remains. However, the passion behind such fervent embrace can leave you begging for more life, for more of that boundless love, even when it knocks you on the head whilst grabbing for you. This is possible when you give up on judgement of what is good and what is bad, on what is apparently spiritual and what is not, and when you just realize everything in your life is leading to love. Whether through caress or a slap, the divine lover is seducing you. If you can accept this, you can certainly give yourself permission to love what you love, to live how you wish to live, and to forget about holding yourself back because some choices makes sense and others, supposedly, do not.

If you are able to rise to the passion that is possible for you, you will let the Wild Red Mother consume your philosophies and doctrines. She’ll feast on your religion and your plans, and devour your doubts and certainties. She’ll tear away your need for maps and directions. Just when you think there’s nothing left, she’ll grab your hands and spin with you. You’ll tilt back your head and laugh so wildly with her, spinning together, along with the earth upon her axis.

With a daring and bold love for life that will not be quashed, that Wild Mother speaks to you now. You can choose passion over fear, time and time again. So I invite you to paint the whole world red with me with passionate nature. Let us laugh and change the world!

This oracle comes to you with a message. It is a big cosmic yes. It is also an invitation to let go of suffering and struggle; not with regret or shame, but with gentle acknowledgment that it has had its purpose. It now has a bigger purpose – that of passion – which calls you to engage in the embrace of life with more abandon than ever before. Now is the time to let go of belief systems and ‘needing to know’ anything. It is time to trust in the beating of your own heart and in the people, places and experiences that truly move you, whether it makes sense or appears to be logical or not.

The Wild Red Mother comes to you when you are ready for her at a soul level. Your mind may think she is a thief in the night, ready to pilfer all you hold near and dear – and be utterly in terror at the prospect – but your soul will be gurgling with such anticipation of freedom it will fill your heart with sweet love and urge you to let go. Let her have her way with you – even if it means she crashes into you in the dark as she fumbles and drags you, half asleep, to go out dancing with her under the full moon, wearing nothing but your animal skin and a smile. She’ll soothe any bumps and bruises you receive in opening up to life with the most tender and effective of ministrations, for she is just as tender a nurse as she is a wild, raging dance partner.

This oracle also brings you guidance. You have divine permission to do something ridiculous – be it ridiculous in your own mind for your age or career path, or some identity or version of yourself you or another hold. The more ridiculous or inappropriate it seems – the more it moves you from your heart, without rhyme or reason – the better. This is not about hurting people or behaving without moral code. It is not about childish indulgence and questionable justification for letting the ego misbehave. It is not about the ego at all; the Wild Red Mother eats ego for breakfast. This guidance is about listening to the truth of your heart and allowing your soul to throb with aliveness, making that more important than any restriction, opinion, judgment or fear the mind – yours or that of others – could summon.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands open before you, and say aloud: “I call on the passionate Wild Red Mother, who loves me without condition, and the brother of my soul, Rumi. I ask for your guardianship on to the path of divine passion now. May I lead with my heart, dance in life without fear, and surrender into truth, singing with my soul, becoming a leader of the new way of love upon this sacred earth. It is safe for me to be in my wild divinity. It is the only safe and true way for me to thrive! I am blessed now and in the Wild Red Mother’s unconditionally loving protection and grace. So be it.” You have finished your sacred ritual.”*

Even as we release all of our old limiting belief systems, we somehow create more. We hold back. We worry that we aren’t doing it well enough. Maybe we compare ourselves to others, thinking that they have a special gift that we do not. We think that if only we too had that gift, then we could be as they are. We limit ourselves through our perceptions of what is possible. We hold ourselves back to protect us from rejection and judgment. The parameters change but the limitations stay in place, morphing over time to let us think that we are progressing, rising, awakening.

It’s time to see the world with brand new eyes. It’s time to break some rules! Not laws, not doing stuff that is quite obviously going to get you into trouble out there… but breaking the rules that you have set in place for yourself. Yes, those rules! Like the rule that says you have to look a certain way before you can find true love. Or the rule that says that you have to make a certain amount of money or own a particular item. You know, those rules. The ones that say you are too old or too young or too whatever it is that  you have going on in your mind. Ya, scratch all that.

It’s time to get out of your comfort zone in a big way. A passionate way. A bucket list kind of way. Like this is your last chance to get it right, a do over of sorts.

But this time, instead of going into it all serious and solemn… you are going to wildly, passionately create it. Paint it into your reality with big, huge bold strokes of colour. Unapologetically. With a maniacal grin and a bawdy cackle. You are going to take charge and shock even yourself with what you are capable of.

This is big. Life changing stuff.

Can you feel into the energy of it? Can you look into the image on the card and feel your inner fire ignited?

Plan something crazy fun. Take a chance. Give it your all.

Namaste

The Impossible Made Possible

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Impossible Made Possible, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli

The Impossible Made Possible:

“Love brings the sea into boiling
and turns the mountain into a pebble.
Love creates infinite openings
in the dark sky and shudders
the earth with its magnitude.”

~ RUMI

“She spins, this great earth goddess, upon invisible strings amongst a wildly pulsating ballet of life. Stars are born, live and die all around her. Life moves in constant flux, and still she spins in her great, loving, constant pirouette. How can this be? All of creation is born from nothing; out of endless silence and darkness, light emerges. What strange magic is this? The sun heats the solar system and burns with the power to destroy life; yet, it is a force by which life is sustained. Surely this makes no sense and cannot be? We dance in the realm of the impossible made possible constantly, you and I. We are so engrossed in it, so familiar with it and yet blinded to it, that these constant impossibilities happening in every moment fail to inspire us.

Yet what are your biggest, boldest, most extraordinarily impossible dreams compared to this great impossibility of life itself? Ah, they are but tiny seeds in the Creator’s masterful hand being now planted in the heavenly garden. Yes, they are being planted right now, for the moon tells us the time is right. Most tenderly shall they be watched over, nurtured into fullness according to the season. Yes, that growth is assured. The impossible is now made possible.”

“We only limit what we believe to be possible by our lack of imagination! The Divine has recourse to all that is and all that is yet to be. Is there any limit to the resources of the heavens? what we believe to be possible by our lack of imagination! The Divine has recourse to all that is and all that is yet to be. Is there any limit to the resources of the heavens? No! So then, why has not every impossible dream now been rendered possible, indeed manifest in shining glory upon the earth? The human heart knows everything envisioned can manifest according to the divine timing and grace. Yet the mind does quake with fear, so much so that it will not listen to the heart at times. That fear is a childlike nightmare: that should you offer yourself up to the sacred loving power of the Great Creator you might be found to be lacking. The mind holds itself captive with dark fantasies of that profound rejection and then avoids confronting it directly at all costs. It creates barriers instead, truly nothing more than lines in the sand yet believed to be forts.

But what strongholds can resist love? It is like water. I seeps into every available space and changes form to survive in every environmental condition. With unfailing intelligence it creates life – from steam to ice, rainfall, the river, and ocean, rain descending into snowflakes, snow capping the peak, expressing itself with beauty and genius. It nestles under the earth and rises to the sky, only to return to the earth again. It will erode blockages and prevail, no matter how long that process takes. It carves the earth into shape and form. Where it is, there is life. Such is the adaptable intelligence and persistence of water, just as it is the power of love.

So now you are guided by this loving power to drop the doubt. Shed the incredulity and open up the mind. Allow your imagination to be inspired as though you are a child in a great garden hearing the breath of the earth in the wind-whipped leaves and the voices of the ancestors in birdsong. The universe wants wants something to happen for you, something beautiful, something utterly improbable, and something perfect for your path, your own unique divine destiny. Your mind will wonder if it is even possible. People around you may wonder the same thing, but your heart will burn for it to become real, to become more than a fantastic improbable dream. You will want it with all your soul. You may not even be consciously aware as yet what this great desire is, but your heart knows. It holds a secret knowledge and will unveil it when your mind can handle it. When your heart is much more powerful than your mind, you won’t unintentionally block the incredible grace of manifestation seeking to pour into your thirsty soul, like the sweetest, purest waters of blessing.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands very lightly at your throat.
Say aloud: “With RUMI who loves me unconditionally as my witness, I now offer myself into the hands of the all-loving creative intelligence of this universe. I release all vows, intentions or beliefs ever made – consciously or unconsciously, in this or any lifetimes – that are based in doubt and fear, holding back from creative fruition of my soul upon the earth. I dedicate myself to love and accept the gift of grace that brings me into greater fulfillment now. May I be blessed so I can surrender resistance and accept what is coming to me now for what it is – a gift of love. So be it.”

Place your hands at your heart and focus on your breath for a moment or two as it flows in and out.
When you are ready, place your hands in prayer position and bow your head to your hands.
You have completed your sacred honouring ritual.”*

Take a few moments or minutes to gaze at the image on the card above. Can you feel the energy? Gaze at it and then close your eyes and allow that energy to integrate into your physical body. Breathe it in. How does that feel? It is the perfect image to embody the energies of the coming month… energies that are starting to seep through now.

We have had so much energy, so many downloads and upgrades coming through. They come through the alignments of the planets and the stars. They come through the solar flares and the opening of gateways and portals. They come when we are asleep and when we are awake. They come whether we are ready for them, or we are not. It’s all part of the process of ascension. And we are all part of this process.

The energies coming now are manifestation energies. Thoughts quite literally becoming things. Faster than you ever thought possible.

So, the most important question to ask  yourself would be: What am I focusing on? Where is my intention? What am I wanting to create and am I focusing all my energy on that, or am I focusing on not having it, or feeling that I do not deserve it. Am I taking the steps as I am intuitively guided, or am I feeling like I am unable (or unwilling) to change things to get to where I need to be?

It’s all up to you.

Say it. It’s all up to ME.

What seems impossible? Why is it impossible? Is that because you have smothered it with expectations, limitations, doubts and fears? Have you tried asking what else is possible? Have you tried believing that what is yours will be guided to you?

Perspective is everything.

The Universe wants to blow your mind. Are you up for it? There are clues already, are you seeing them around you? Special people. New opportunities. Doors opening.

Leaps of faith are yours for the taking.

Namaste

Hand Of Fatimah

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.”*

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.

Namaste
