Daily Angel Oracle Card: Purification Meditation, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart

Purification Meditation: “Purification. Forgiveness”

“The geometry of the golden spiral hearts encourages you to meditate and purify your consciousness. These hearts embrace the energy of love both within the core being of the figure and expanding beyond into radiant universal love. She sits in meditation, willing to forgive herself and all beings, ready to purify her intention to live a life of compassion and integrity. Flames consume and ‘burn away’ all that does not serve the most loving, kind and compassionate true Self. The blue flame is that which burns away ego.

This card encourages you to purify your thoughts and look to your heart for guidance and support. Old-paradigm thinking and prejudiced reactions have a way of leading to feelings of guilt, gloom, and confusion. Is there an obstacle to your spiritual growth that has caused you concern of late? Is self-criticism impeding your path to your true essence?

Forgive yourself and see all notions of unworthiness and shame being burned away in this transforming fire of purification. Forgive all your loved ones, neighbors, politicians, and all beings for the things they have done or said that do not benefit the greater good. Let the blue flames burn away the ego and reveal self-esteem and self-respect. The universe supports your growth and purification.”

Reversed: “Self-doubt and criticism are clouding your vision. Make use of this meditation to regain your radiant center.”*

~ By Francene Hart

There is no more room on this journey for the baggage you carry of self doubt and self criticism, let it all go. It is weighing you down, all this negativity that you batter your heart with. Forgive and release and let it all go. You have learned your lesson, acknowledge it and let the pain of the lesson go. Break the pattern, remove the ties that bind you to such a small way of thinking and see the beauty in what IS, not what was or what could have been.

As you release any and all which holds you back, you make space for the new. Clear it all out, physically and mentally. Do some spring cleaning, your house, your car, your office, make space in every aspect of your life. Don’t hold on to anything that does not serve you any longer; people, possessions; clothing; whatever it is, if it is not making your life joyful and Light, take measures to release it from your reality. Of course with people this is not always easy, but we are not doing anyone any favours by holding on to them if they make us miserable, let them go, gently or firmly… do what you have to do to distance  yourself, make space for someone new. Give away clothes that do not make you feel fabulous; they will make someone else happy. Give up any obligations that you resent. Give up the foods that do not nourish your body. Give up the habits that steal bits of your Soul.

Reform your life piece by piece, little by little, choice by choice. Until everything looks the way you want it to. Baby steps. You got this.

Namaste

Empowerment: “Rely on your inner strength to ensure your dreams are realized”

“The blessing of Ganesha is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible and reliable. The energy from this card is a feeling of optimism and positive energy. Dreams and long term goals are becoming a reality. If you have been lethargic or unmotivated, take time to tune into your personal power.

Yellow is associated with the solar plexus chakra, which is the third chakra. This chakra is considered to be at the core of your being, your power center. Here is the home of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, and your personality. Ganesha is showing you that there is an important purpose for you in this lifetime on Earth. You are awakening to your personal power and the memory f yourself as a soul. Your healing will be complete when you see the light of your soul and know that light is who  you truly are.

Every time you criticize yourself, you weaken your resolve. Loving and accepting yourself, and acknowledging your value are the foundation of a balanced solar plexus. When the solar plexus chakra is in balance, you are confident and empowered with a healthy level of self-esteem. You have respect for yourself as well as respect for others. You have a strong sense of self and your personal power and you use it responsibly.

Be confident in your talents. Love yourself. Be willing to powerfully express yourself. Choose to be direct with your desires at this time. If you are asking about a decision, all indications are that the time to act is now.”*

When we find our true inner power, it will set us free. When we no longer feel the need to control or dominate others. When we feel that we are completely equal to all other forms of life on this planet and beyond. When we see our own true divinity within ourselves, and know that we are absolutely worthy. When we meet others and there is only Love, only receptivity. This is when we know that finally we are empowered.

We are sovereign beings, each and every one of us. Yet we have been told by society that we are not. We are told that we must obey, we must live by the rules that have been given to us by those in ‘higher’ positions. All illusion of course. As we learn to take our power back, we realize that power is not at all what we had once perceived it to be. Power is not being a bully, it is not being stronger physically, or abusive mentally. Power is not something to be wielded but something to be centered in; balanced.

We are reaching a tipping point, and the shift is going to be huge. The biggest landslide you can imagine. The power is going back to the peaceful warriors.

And with it, standing together, we will rule the world.

You haven’t seen nothing yet!

Namaste

Physical Body

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Physical Body, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Physical Body: “Your body, which is your vehicle on the Earth plane, has a voice. It tells you what it needs. So pay attention to your body and what it is trying to tell you. If some part of it is out of balance or blocked, it will let you know. Be loving and gentle with your body, nurture and respect it and above all, watch your thoughts. Be aware of what you are thinking. The next time you have a negative or critical thought about any part of you, stop and change that thought to a loving and accepting one. Be grateful and thank your body for all it does for you.

Close your eyes. Take a slow deep breath and let it flow into every part of you. Relax your body, relax your thoughts and imagine each breath as a soothing, glowing light that is healing every part of you.

Negative thoughts, emotions and attitudes can often be the root cause of many diseases. So allow only positive thoughts to flourish. As your beliefs and attitudes change, so too will your body.”*

~ by Toni Carmine Salerno

Sending positive, loving, healing and accepting messages to your physical body can help it to heal. Sending messages of criticism, distaste, anger, frustration or resentment can perpetuate dis-ease and cause blockages and stagnancy. How are you treating your physical vessel? With reverence and respect? Or are you punishing it for not being what you would like it to be? Are you angry that it doesn’t look like a Victoria Secret model? Or are you grateful that it gets you where you need to go? Or do you take it for granted and feel disconnected or ungrounded?

Our physical bodies are valuable assets in this incarnation, yet we do take them for granted. We live in a society that values beauty over health, sportsmanship over intelligence and unfortunately in many cultures the male over the female. What we don’t realize, is that our physical bodies are part of our lesson in this lifetime. We actually chose them at a Soul level. Yes, really! Our physical incarnation can teach us so much in the material realm. It can teach us to overcome perceived obstacles; it can teach us to feel; it can teach us to appreciate the sensuality of life using all of our available senses. It can teach us pain and it can teach us healing; birth and death; transformation and change. It is a miracle if you allow it to be.

Gratitude is healing to the physical body; thanking it every day for a job well done, flaws and all. Sending it love and light will do wonders; particularly if it is used to receiving only abuse and destructive habits. Part of our journey of raising our consciousness is complete acceptance of our physical form. It is seeing the perfection in the mirror of imperfection. It is understanding the fleeting nature of the physical, the beauty and perfection of the cycles.

Take care of your amazing physical body. It is your chosen temple for this incarnation. Nurture it well with food from the earth. Allow it to rest. Quench it with pure water. Let it breathe fresh air. Reconnect it to Mother Gaia, by planting your bare feet on the ground, hugging a tree, smelling the flowers and appreciating the stunning bounty of nature. In return, it will allow you to ascend in consciousness, taking in more Light, becoming Love.

Body, mind and spirit

Moose

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Moose, from the Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson

Moose: “Self-Esteem”

“Moose is found in the North of the medicine wheel, as is Buffalo. North represents the place of wisdom. Self-esteem is the medicine of Moose because it represents the power of recognizing that wisdom has been used in a situation and that recognition or a pat on the back is deserved.

Moose is the largest member of the deer family and has great strength. The call of the male Moose is an awesome thing to hear on a musky spring night. His pride in his maleness and his desire to share his seed with a Moose cow are displays of his sense of self-esteem. The bellow of a male Moose can be viewed as a positive force, since it represents his willingness to “tell the world” about his feelings.

This “tell the world” trait contains a joyfulness which only comes with a sense of accomplishment. There is no greater joy than a job well done. This trait is therefore not a seeking of approval, but rather an enjoyment of sharing because of the spontaneous explosion of joy that comes from the deepest part of one’s being.

The wisdom woven throughout this scenario is that creation constantly brings for the new ideas and further creation. Moose is telling us that joy should be shouted with pride. The wisdom in doing this shouting is that the joy is “catching.” In a sense, the bellowing is a way for all of us to lighten up and give ourselves or each other a “well done!”

Moose medicine people have the ability to know when to use the gentleness of Deer and when to activate the stampede of Buffalo. They understand the balance between giving orders to get things done and having a willingness to do things themselves. The wisdom of Moose medicine is akin to the Grandfather Warrior who has long since put away his war paint and is now advising the young bucks to cool their blood.

Moose medicine is often found in elders who have walked the Good Red Road and have seen many things in their Earth Walk. Their joy lies in being the teachers of the children, and in being the first ones to give encouragement. This is not to say that Moose medicine people do not use their wisdom to warn as well as to give praise, because they do. Moose medicine people know what to say, when to say it, and to whom.

The elders are honored in tribal law for their gifts of wisdom, for their teaching abilities, and for the calmness they impart in Council. If you are wise beyond your years and have the gift of Moose medicine, use this gift to encourage others to learn and grow. There are man facets to the wisdom of Moose medicine.

If you have chosen the Moose card, you have reason to feel good about something you have accomplished on your journey. This may be a habit you have broken, a completion of some sort, an insight on a goal, or a new sense of self that you have fought hard to earn. It is a time of feeling harmonious pride, and of recognizing those who aided you in the process.

One good exercise in Moose medicine is to write down things that you can love about yourself and your progress in life. Then apply these same things to friends, family, coworkers, and life. Don’t forget to share the findings with others. They need the encouragement as much as you do.”*

Moose is calling you to celebrate a recent victory; to acknowledge your success and ground your energy down through it. This is a celebration of gratitude and accomplishment, there is no need for ego or bravado, it is simply an acknowledgment of truth. A job well done!

Know that this is actually a doorway, should you choose to walk through it. It is simply a new beginning; one of self-love and acceptance leading to a new levels of confidence in Being. You are proving yourself to yourself; there is no one else to impress. This is about shattering all the old blocks and limitations; passing by them with your head held high, knowing that they were merely stepping stones.

You are free to explore this big, abundant Universe in a way that you were too sheltered, too fearful to do before. Now you can do it with ease and grace, gusto and faith.

Anything is possible.

Go forward fearlessly.

Namaste

Dee
