Gaia’s Dragon: “Divine Union”

Gaia and her Dragon Speak: “Hear our voices, male and female, coiling through and around each other, as we speak as one. We are Gaia and her Dragon and we are one being, though separate, just as your divine union will be. Think of the beauty of love-making with a partner… the harmony and balance, the yielding and the chase, that which we represent through our perfect union is the Divine Marriage: the blissful soulmate experience that so many beings long for. True marriage does not mean becoming the same being: look at how apparently different we are! And yet, within that is protection and care, fertility and new growth, Heaven and Earth, joined together. Is the sky the same as the earth you walk on?No, but look at their harmonious relationship. In exactly the same way, your Divine Union will not be with one who is the same as you, but you will, when brought into divine marriage and perfect balance provide each other with a home, and unity and love, and you will bring out what is best within and without the other. The Dragon loves and protects Gaia. Gaia adores her dragon, who is the heavens, and will bring forth new life as a result of this union. You are loved and have on this planet and within the celestial realm a perfect and divine partner… beyond history, past lives and future lives lies this divine union. It is and will be yours…”

About Gaia and her Dragon: “Gaia is the reproductive Goddess energy of this planet and her Dragon is the cosmos, the atmospheric and celestial energy within which she interacts and wells. Each needs the other to be… not to survive, but to be. She and he are in Divine accord and union and represent the marriage of Heaven and Earth. She is the cycles of the planet, he is the seasons of the Universe. Together, they create a new world and a new life: and bring about hope. Their love for each other is steady, constant, with harmonious and different energies blending beautifully together. Theirs is a peaceful and passionate love, and to each other they are eternally true.”

Divinatory Meaning of Gaia’s Dragon: “Bringing into balance matters of the Earth and matters of the heavens, balance of the celestial and terrestrial, union between man and woman, beloved child, pregnancy, fertility, creations coming to fruition, meeting true lovers who are faithful, caring and protective, understanding your own sexual nature and being free to be who you are, balance of masculine and feminine in your world.”

Working with Gaia and Her Dragon: “Bring to your life your innate gift for relationships. Ask Gaia and her Dragon for their assistance in allowing each person in a relationship to be fully themselves, and yet be in perfect relationship with each other. Know that your relationships can also be true, steadfast and sacred, and that integrity in relationships is valued, prized and to be kept sacred. Gaia will assist you in bringing forth ideas, even children and can be considered a wonderful Goddess to call on for fertility: her Dragon will assist in calling forth male beings who are honourable, trustworthy, strong and passionate. He is able to care for and protect without ever attempting to mute her power and creativity… such partnerships can exist for you, too, if you allow them into your life with Gaia and her Dragon’s help.”*

Love is coming your way, are you ready for it? This is not a whirlwind romance, it is something much deeper than that. Whether you are single or in a relationship, there will be a deepening of love, a breakthrough. If this is not possible in your current relationship, you will know that the work must be done first inside you, and will be reflected in the outside world.

If you are single, and have been waiting for ‘the one’ there is a very good chance that you will meet your twin flame in the immediate future. You may want to do a little research on this… it is not someone who is coming to save you, but a perfect compliment to you. Get yourself in order and you will attract the one for you.

How do you do this? Well, it’s simple really. Love you like you wish someone else would. And they will.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ishtar ~ Boundaries, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ishtar ~ Boundaries: “Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your energy”

Message From Ishtar: “A sincere desire to give of service is wonderful. However, there is a distinction between giving of yourself and giving up yourself. If you feel tired, guilty, or resentful while helping others, then you are not truly helping them, are you? You are injecting poisonous energies into the relationship, and then no one benefits. Step back and reassess the situation. As you respect your own boundaries, others will begin to recognize and respect them within you, and within themselves as well. Now that is a healthy behavior to teach others!”

Various Meanings Of This Card: “You are giving too much. Become more assertive. Do not do things out of guilt or obligation.”

About Ishtar: “She has been worshiped and invoked since ancient Babylonian times as the embodiment of Venus’s womanly energy. Ishtar represents the Divine feminine in all of her aspects, including nurturing, mothering, sensuality, fertility, healing, protection, and wisdom. As a multidimensional goddess, Ishtar does not tire of helping the men and women who call upon her for assistance.” *

Boundaries are so important and it is imperative that you work on yours now. You cannot let your energy be sapped by others, or by spreading yourself too thin. This is a powerful time of manifestation, and you will become a beacon of light to those who wish to have what you are creating. It is important to know the difference between inspiring and empowering others, and being taken advantage of. Not everyone wants to put in all the hard work that you have put in; maybe they are stuck in “victim mode” and believe that circumstance has robbed them of their true birthright. Maybe there is someone who is jealous or envious of what you have, and rather than working hard to create the same for themselves, they seek to take what is yours.

Do not let these energies scare you, and remember that you are always in complete control of your own energy. Protect yourself by creating boundaries, both physical and energetic. You can physically distance yourself from people who do not resonate with you, who are negative towards you, have toxic behaviors or who are always blaming or complaining. Even if you feel guilty for taking a step back, this is exactly what you must do at this time. In fact, by doing so, you are actually doing them a favour – instead of enabling, you are empowering them by forcing them to tackle their own lives instead of focusing on yours.

Energetically, you can use protective stones, such as obsidian, black tourmaline and labradorite (to name just a few) to protect your energy. These stones can be worn or carried to create an energetic barrier between you and others. Be sure to cleanse them regularly. You can also create crystal grids in you home to protect it and keep the energy positive and uplifting, or place crystals such as clear quartz or apophyllite in the corners of a room.

Milk And Honey

Milk And Honey: “The taste of prosperity; opportunities born of authenticity; nurturing abundance; trusting that your needs will be met.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have entered a sweet time in your life, enjoying the ‘land of milk and honey’ that everyone wants to experience. It is an interlude that feels more languid than ambitious, when all your senses are awake to the unlimited possibilities in the universe. These times are precious and only come when you are in your authentic zone, ‘wearing the world as a loose garment,’ not wanting, yet about to be nourished in ways both tangible and subtle. Abundance is an energy that you are a living part of. All your needs are being met. You are given the gift of nourishment in every form.”

Relationship Message: “Sensuality, connection and passionate romance between lovers; sweet moments of understanding; and love among friends and family are all here for you to savor now. Your heart’s calling will be answered. Let your thoughts and feelings be sweet with gratitude and you will be nourished with the honey of abundance.”

Prosperity Message: “There is only one authentic you. This version of your Self is Spirit’s emissary in the world. When you are in alignment with the truth that you are a unique expression of the Divine, your ego can rest and your Soul can illuminate your purpose. Now is the time when you are seeking your true north. When you find this direction,  you automatically step into prosperity and the world brings you evidence of abundance. Miracles are a choice and a way of seeing the world. With every choice you make right now, you have the potential to seize good fortune and embrace your destiny. Opportunities will lead you to your best life now. Be open to them. You are getting a sweet taste of what you want.”

Protection Message: ” A nameless unease compels you to turn to pleasure and comfort as a means to escape that is really going on. It works in the moment, but only fleetingly – before the feelings return and you need to re-up until you are exhausted. Feeling worse than before, you may continue struggling… or you may see the light and choose to surrender to Spirit. Now is the time for practicing extreme self-care. If you can, do so before you engage in behaviours you will regret later. You are so loved, so cared for. Feel love and compassion for yourself. Turn your troubles over to the Divine for healing. That is all that counts right now.”*

~By Colette Baron-Reid

We are entering the third month of 2017 with a message of prosperity, abundance, and miracles! This is great news!

The energies are shifting again and anything and everything is possible at this time. Over the next month, you will have several opportunities to expand in new directions. Watch for new people entering your life; watch for invitations to events, classes or workshops you have not before attended; and watch for doors being opened for you in various aspects of your life, both personally and professionally.

Things could look really different at the end of this month if you allow them to, it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone, bypassing fears and grabbing the bull by the horns… quite literally.

The slogan for this month could be “Go for it!” Remember we are shaping the next nine year cycle all year in 2017; whatever directions we go and choices we make will affect us for years to come. Do not sit quietly waiting for life to happen “to” you while doing the same routines, being around the same people and staying in the same ruts.

Start with a big shift in what you believe to be possible and run with it from there; the snowball starts from inside us, our thoughts, beliefs and intentions. As we focus our energy we start the momentum. As we say YES to the Universe, we get the ball rolling. As we take new opportunities and create a new life for ourselves, the snowball takes on a life of it’s own, growing and growing. The possibilities are endless.

Take your world and use it to create your dreams.

For the Highest Good of All and so it is.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Bast, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Bast: “Holy Longing, Desire, Instinct, Sensuality”

“The sensual cat goddess Bast creates the compelling desire to be born into form from the disembodied ba (soul) in the realm of formlessness. Her instinctual holy longing is irresistible in its urgency to create new life. She shows us that birth is sacred and being born into form is a blessing, not a curse. She is our guardian through the birthing chambers each time we are ready to renew our form. As a fertility goddess, Bast represents the sacred side of lust and the discernment to know when to surrender to the holy longing, which is based in the desire to embody form and connect to the soft, warm, animal aspect of our human bodies.

Without her alluring promise of new delights, we would never have the impetus or courage to reenter the cosmic birth canal and be born over and over again. With each birth we celebrate the joy and the magic of our precious incarnation here on Earth. One of Bast’s functions is to help the birth mother distinguish and call for the new soul that is coming toward her during conception.

Every act of creation requires birth, whether it is the words that come from your mouth or the food that arrives at the table. If you have drawn this card, Bast is showing up as a guardian and guide to lead you to your heart’s desire and to bring your instincts and sensuality into alignment with your holy longing. Pay close attention to what  you are now birthing into the world. Bast will help yo use and hold to the higher dedication and commitment underlying what you most desire to create.

Additionally, consider how cats are self-confident and self-contained and how they reflect for us a strong example of self-love and self-care. If Bast appears in your reading, make the time to settle in and pamper yourself. You deserve it.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Passion, sensuality, deep connection; they are all imminent or on offer now. Creation, manifestation, inspiration and motivation are at an all time high. We can drink of the elixir of Love and watch it fill us with Light. Anything is possible now.

Take some time to do what you love. Enjoy the luxurious and tantalizing treats of the material realm; food, water, fire, music, art, self-care. Have a cat nap in a sunny spot. Have a sea salt bath by candle light. Have a massage. Do a salt scrub and nourish your body with a natural moisturizer. Take care of yourself. Enjoy being in your own skin; not focusing on the way it looks but for how it truly feels. Share this experience with someone you care about; or know that someone is coming who will want to be close to you and share this type of deep sensuality with you.

Indulge in some passion and pleasure, for that is the gift of being human… keeping in mind that when sensuality comes with true connection we are enriched. We can break free from the old ways and no longer allow ourselves to be slaves to the illusion that sex can be used as power or currency.

Influence

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Influence, from the Tao Oracle, By Ma Deva Padma

Influence: “Mutual attraction is stimulating. It is a magnetic, deeply energizing dynamic between two people that can be profoundly enriching or, on the other hand, simply an acting-out of compulsiveness and the need for self-gratification. The critical difference lies in whether or not there is genuine mutual respect.

Keeping things in perspective when the emotional climate is heating up is only possible when some balance is maintained through taking periodic breaks that allows both parties to step back from the intensity. This capacity to keep a distance enables trust to develop, and creates space for the natural rhythms between people to evolve. In the early stages of a strong mutual attraction, it is more than challenging to pull back and cool down, especially when everything inside you is driven by passion. But in any event the passage of time will surely turn down that heat, and being able to consider the relationship in the light of less obvious passions enables you to anticipate this natural process. In the way even at the outset, a passionate relationship is given a far better chance to mature and ripen rather than burn out from intensity and go stale and flat.

The power of attraction has been exploited in the media ad nauseam, and we are constantly assaulted by the use of sensual and sexual imagery to sell everything from candy to cars, fashionable attitudes, ideologies. During the course of any given day we are subjected to hundreds of such images, each carrying messages both subliminal and overt. It is difficult to tell if we are becoming desensitized to the subtleties of natural attraction. There is a danger once our desire for meaningful relationships becomes distorted by a preference for flawless fantasies over human reality.

In the presence of genuine affection, everything seems to ‘click’ without effort and there is a willingness to work with all kinds of drawbacks that in less attractive circumstances might be laws of yin and yang. Spontaneous, one on one exchanges between complementary and unique individuals is the expression, on human terms, of that interchanging between the ‘active’ yang principle and the ‘receptive yin principle. This free-flowing dance of energy creates a natural high where the outlook seems rosier, the impossible is possible, and the ordinary becomes extraordinary. It is nature with a capital N, it’s the birds and the bees, and it’s intrinsically juicy.

Natural magnetism is not defined by appearances; it need not be between a man and a woman, but can be shared between any two people. It often defines the rational and practical. Be it a friendship, partnership, or marriage, both members should be willing to openly share and trust in the sanctity of the bond, lest it simply collapse under the weight of disillusionment. To  continue, there must be plenty of mutual support and nonpossessiveness and respect. A balanced relationship is not a dependency but an interdependence. It should feel more like an ongoing ‘happening’ and something static and safe.”*

 ~By Ma Deva Padma

As we step into ourselves we invite more love into every aspect of our lives. We are magnets for love, and it shows. There are deep connections being made starting now and continuing throughout the year, and with each connection comes a gift. The connections will come in many forms, and yes there will be passion too. And it will be different than previously experienced. More open, more honest. Like we have nothing to lose; like trust is essential and why would we throw it away?

The games are over, look for truth. Look for those who can love themselves, and be one who can receive and return this love. For in being that love, you attract more of it. For in being completely open, you allow others to open up too. There is no reason to fear, and there is no reason to run. It is safe to receive this love.

Whether you are in a relationship, or looking to be in one, things are about to get interesting, and not in a high drama way. In a deeper connection than you ever thought possible way.

Wait for it…

Divine Sensuality

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Divine Sensuality, from the Oracle Of The Mermaids, by Lucy Cavendish, Artwork by Selena Fenech

Divine Sensuality: “Making Love, Erotica”

The Mermaids Sing: “Yes, the mermaids are protectors and champions of sexuality and freedom, allure and power! To experience physical bliss is not a purely physical event – there is an intimate connection that connects people who make love, or kiss, or even just shake hands… who touch… and when we exchange this great intimacy with another, there is established between us a strong energetic connection. So it is wise to consider who we make love with, and when, and where, and very much why. But there is also an undercurrent in our culture that still sees love making, sensuality and the love of the pleasure of the body and the celebration and elevation of that pleasure to an art as something that is laden and twisted with guilt. The tainted sexual beliefs of the medieval era which led to a hatred of the body, of sexuality, and a demonization of women are still with us in some ways. Even the sexualization of our bodies undermines our ability to make love; to pleasure ourselves, and to enjoy this great pleasure and joy that has been gifted to us. The mermaid has come to be a symbol of the temptress, the woman who wishes to draw men and lovers to her – and in many ways, she is the symbol of danger. And so it is with our sensuality.

If you have drawn this card  it is likely you are ready to explore and dive into your own physical expression of bliss: it may be through making love with a cared-for other, achieving greater intimacy in your relationships, or even experiencing blissful sensual moments while receiving a massage or dancing… but this card encourages you to reconnect with the love of your natural physicality, and to explore the pleasure your sensuality can bring to you, and to begin to understand and untangle any of the lingering cultural or personal guilt you may have about this. There are man beliefs  many taboos too: that women who enjoy sexual feelings and evoke them in others are impure, courting danger, threatening to themselves and to other women, and dangerous to men. But the truth is, we all have a seductress within us, a mermaid-like being who dwells within our psyche and subconscious, who is able to show us how to pleasure ourselves and others, and how healing this sacred sensuality is and can be.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “There may be mistrust and even some hatred of the body, the mistrust and hatred of women, the mistrust and hatred of the sensual world. This is often expressed by choosing to believe that sex and people who love and enjoy sex, and keep it sacred, are only desiring to temp you – that they will not fulfill their promises. It may be some time since you experienced true physical intimacy with another, or with yourself, and it is an area of your life which is calling to be awakened… orgasm may be challenging to reach, and there can be sexual dysfunctions. Sex is not a sport, or a competitive game with only one outcome. It is about expression, and interweaving, and it is a journey into the soul of another via the body. If this can be understood, and if you are brave enough, this can be recreated within a relationship whose sexual spring has run dry, or a relationship can be created with another that is sensually and spiritual fulfilling. It is time to accept that there are so many ways to love. You may be judging another’s sexual preference and lifestyle, but you are beginning to discover that there are many ways in which love is expressed physically. Embrace the rainbow that is Love Manifest!”

Divination: “It is possible at this time that you are being judged by others for the sexual choices and mates you have chosen or may be about to choose. Please know that it is your birthright to choose freely who you give yourself to, and why – the exchange, whether this feels like it is a good choice for you, personally. It is time to put aside societal and even cultural and traditional norms and judgments about who we choose, and how we choose to enact sensuality. There is a boundary being broken through – as long as this is a free choice of your own, and one that brings you wisdom, health, joy and respect, it is not for others to make this choice. It is yours alone. Break through the fear!”*

~ By Lucy Cavendish

Oooooh things might take a turn for the steamy!! Are you ready? How does this make you feel? Do you have any fear around intimacy? The Universe may be challenging you here: to accept yourself and others unconditionally and transcend from the typical judgemental and critical thoughts about the human body that you are used to thinking. There is so much more to us than ripped abs and anti wrinkle creams, but we have allowed our magic to be stolen from us; by the porn industry, but the beauty industry and by the weightloss industry.

What if you just decided to enjoy your body, with or without someone else? Bold I know, this is often such a taboo subject. But seriously? Why wait until you feel you are worthy and what if that never really happens? What if we never match up to those (PHOTOSHOPPED!!!) supermodels and porn stars? What if someone out there really can love us just as we are? What if this is all part of the next level of consciousness? Complete acceptance and deep sacred connection, kundalini energy and pure open hearted love… sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?

And believe me, I understand! I have never been happy with my legs, wished that my stomach was flatter, tried various diet and exercise plan only to have my body return to exactly the same shape the moment I falter! And finally I am at an age where I am wondering why I spent all that time, money and energy trying to improve the way I look. Now I do yoga every day for my sanity, my inner resolve, and to find peace and harmony from within. Yes, it does give me one heck of a workout, and yes that does help me look a bit better in my jeans, but really it’s about the way I feel, that is why I do it. The physical benefits are icing on the cake. Eating healthy and drinking lots of water is also to feel better, looks to follow. No more diets for me, I have really tuned in to what feels good to me. It’s not always perfect by any means, but it feels way better than someone telling me what I am and am not allowed to do! It feels pure and authentic and grounded, because it is a nurturing process, not a lack mentality.

You are being invited to explore the delicious aspect of being in the body, right here, right now. Pull yourself right into your body and really use all your senses. Feel the water course down your body in the shower. Feel the texture of the clothing on your skin. Stop and close your eyes while you are eating, explore the tastes and scents. Dive into Divine Sensuality and allow yourself to be completely worthy of receiving the amazing abundance of sensual pleasures of this Earthly plane.

See. Feel. Listen closely. Taste. Touch. Breathe it in.

Namaste

Freya ~ Irresistibility

Published October 1, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Freya ~ Irresistibility, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Freya ~ Irresistibility: “We are all irresistible in our own ways. Enjoyment is a natural part of life. Center yourself and be confident among chaos.”
“Picture the most beautiful warrior woman, standing proudly upon the battlefield, her hair whipping around her, and her weapon in her hand. She stands proudly, head held high, eyes flashing, a feathered cape upon her shoulders. Around her neck rests the most magnificent gold and amber necklace, glittering against her skin. She is a figure of both  fear and desire.

Meet the Norse godddess Freya. Although she is a deity with many talents, including war and withcraft, Freya is primarily considered a goddess of sexuality because of her independent and confident primal nature. Unashamed of her beauty and power, she is often depicted naked, wearing nothing but the great constellation of a necklace, called  Brisingamen (fire). Freya’s necklace, wrought with gold and amber, represents the power of the four elements and the fertile power of the synergy when these elements come together. When she wears it, she becomes irresistible to all.

In the Norse myth, when ever she rode into battle, she received half the slain and Odin the other half. Her maidens, the Valkyries, assisted her in removing the heroic dead from the battlefield. Even after death, men still wanted to be with her and fight alongside her. Freya was known for her wisdom as well as her irresistable nature, and Norse women sought her out for her blessings and advice on healing, magic and relationship matters.

Most of us could do with a dose of Freya’s confidence and irresistibleness at some point. It is very easy to lose confidence when our feelings are not reciprocated, when we have not felt beautiful for a while, or after a breakup. Perhaps we have never experienced solid physical confidence, and this holds us back from being confident and owning our true power. Freya assures us that we are all powerfully attractive. Her message is that external beauty is not enough – it is the confidence in our attractiveness that truly makes us beautiful.”

Shadow Side: “We are bombarded with images of unreal beauty in today’s world. You only have to look at the digitally altered images in magazines to see that the beauty there is impossible to attain. It is hard to feel attractive when unrealistic levels of perfection seem to have become the norm. Media’s emphasis is always on how to look beautiful or irresistible in a way that the rest of society wants, instead of feeling confident and beautiful to ourselves. When this pursuit of an idealized form of beauty becomes and obsession, beauty is no longer natural or nourishing. We now have large numbers of people who look only to the outside for their self’worth and do not feel worthy if new people are not attracted to them all the time. While Freya was irresistible, she balanced this aspect with the other parts of her nature, such as her confidence and strength.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

You are beautiful, just the way you are. You have a gift to share in your uniqueness. We are all interconnected, yet we need you to be the important part of the Whole that you are.

When you let go of self-criticism, and Love what Is, right here and now, it is the gateway to being your own true, authentic and irresistible self. It’s fine to have reasonable goals, particularly when they are concerned with health rather than just with appearance. When we strive for perfection in our looks, and ignore all the inner beauty, we are missing way more than we realize. When we pick ourselves apart, we lose the magic of our being as a Whole. We forget our innate Divinity. We look past the beautiful only to see the flaws.

List the things you love about yourself, tell them to yourself in the mirror. Add a new one each day.

Today, walk a little taller. Today, be more centered in your own beauty. Today, look in the mirror and see your very best attributes, starting with your precious Soul looking out from those gorgeous eyes of yours.

And do it again tomorrow

And the day after that

And the day after that

And see how life changes when you shift your perspective

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
