Meditation: “In meditation, we can find the space between thoughts and mind chatter. When you meditate, you allow your mind to be in a state of peace. This shift in thinking will help stop any limiting and negative thoughts you might have fallen prey to. When fearful thinking gains a foothold in your mind, it can take root and become habitual. Expecting the worst possible outcome can become your normal response. It can be hard to recognize and release fearful thinking.

Take a minute and silence your mind. Breathe in and imagine this breath traveling through your body. Take a second breath and ask your body to relax. You are creating a connection with your higher self, God, Spirit and your intuition. Just one minute a day of meditation can provide a mental reprieve from the thoughts connected with illness, loss or low vibrational thoughts. This can go a long way toward healing.

A sleeping woman is surrounded by wintry imagery. The different scenes indicate a connection with your true essence, your inner resources and time when you felt happier. The snow suggests purity, cleansing and discovering hidden thoughts and fears. The goose may signify a need for reorganizing your priorities and the importance of the many blessings you have in your life. As you hold these images in your mind, begin a meditation to see if any messages come to you. Don’t worry or strain. Commit to meditating for a minute a day and increase it as you start to feel comfortable. Find soothing music that helps you relax. With practice, clarity and relief from stress may come fore easily.”

She is in a perfect cocoon of healing and peace. Safe from the outside world, she has a reprieve; a break from exertion, from drama and from interaction, if even for a brief time. If you are feeling drained or over extended, even if you recognize the blessings all around you; it is time to take a break.

Meditation is medicine for your mind. Disconnect from the chatter, from the distractions of everyday life. With practice, you can learn to relax the body while you free the mind from the loop of repetitive thoughts that hold us all hostage. The worry, the doubt and the fear. The analyzing of the past. The anxiety of the future. The battery of the self by the ego that can feel never ending.

Meditation can be active too. If the word meditation makes you feel uncomfortable, as if you just cannot stop your mind for long enough to find the peace, try a moving meditation first. Yoga, a walk on the beach or a hike through the woods is perfect. Mindfulness is key. Work to clear your mind and let everything go. Focus on your breath. On the sound of the waves or the birds in the trees. Soften your gaze and imagine your energy merging with your surroundings. Bring yourself fully into the moment.

When you feel comfortable with a moving meditation, try experimenting with stillness. Sit for 5 minutes a day in silent contemplation, again focusing on breath, letting your thoughts go. Over time increasing slowly minute by minute. Some days will be better than others. Sometimes you will be distracted, that is ok. Let it go and try again. Have patience with yourself. Use music or guided meditations if that helps. Do it for a month and see how it shifts your perspective.

Then commit to it for life.

Namaste

Reflection

Published December 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Reflection, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Reflection, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Reflection: “In this first cycle of earthly reality, Starseed has learned the essentials of existence in form:
~The magic of manifesting form.
~Higher self and the inherent wisdom we bring through our karmic record
~The flow of energy in all its boundless expression
~The importance of structure in the creative stream
~Spiritual guidance
~The giving of one’s self to love
~The power of right mind over the senses
~The meaning of true strength”

“At the end of this first cycle (I-IX), it is time to rest and reflect on all that has been learned. It is time to ruminate on the wisdom of Starseed’s passage thus far.

To achieve the silence to contemplate such important lessons, Starseed is guided to go into a sort of hermitage, far from the distraction of people and events, and back to the quiet of nature, where the greatest truths lie.

At a time when humankind is bombarded with all manner of noise and distraction via our personal interactions, technology, and media, the path of the hermit can be the remedy to restoring peace in the mind and the soul.

Associated with Reflection are the words hermitage, silence, contemplation, meditation, stillness, and peace.

When Reflection appears in a reading, the querent might consider the following: Am I able to silence my mind and reflect on the situation at hand? How am I quieting my mind to contemplate the higher truth? Am I able to be still and listen to my inner voice? Do I need to get away, to find the guidanceĀ  I need in the situation? Have I matured from what I have learned? How am I behaving like a hermit to those who seek my attention or guidance?”

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

2017 has been quite the year to contemplate. A lot has happened. So very much it feels like too much. It is the beginning of the cycle of the next nine years. It is the beginning of the biggest shift of the ages. The release. The purging. The clearing of the slate. This is the beginning of the shattering of illusions. Bringing of the truth. Leveling of the field.

It has been so extreme at times. It has been heartbreaking. It has been liberating and transforming. It is powerful energy, coming from above and below that has set the wheels into motion.

What do we see in the above image? A delving into the depths, shedding light into the darkest corners. A fearlessness; holding the light to guide the way. Refusing to let the darkness drive us back.

Here in Victoria, BC our city has been rocked by heartache in the most devastating way. On Christmas Day, local mother Sarah Cotton lost her two beautiful daughters at their father’s hand. I personally do not know her but many of my friends do, regardless she is part of our community here and she has suffered a loss no mother should ever suffer. There is so much to the story that would lead us to believe that she simply wasn’t listened to. (more about the story here). That her intuition and cries for assistance went unheeded. That her protective instincts were not honoured. And now she’s lost what is most dear to her heart. And my heart hurts for hers. Tonight at 7pm PST there will be a candlelight vigil for the girls. Please send your love and prayers to their mother.

What we need now more than ever is Light. We need to come together and help each other. Listen to each other. See each other. Really be here in the moment, being the most authentic versions of ourselves that we can be. Living from the heart center. Banding together as best we can. Refusing to let the darkness suffocate us. Embracing those who need us most.

Prayers of love and light to every single one of us and prayers to Sarah may she somehow find peace without her daughters in her care, but with her angels always by her side.

Namaste

Contemplation

Published December 27, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Contemplation, from the Magical Dimensions Oracle Cards and Activators, by Lightstarartwork by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Contemplation, from the Magical Dimensions Oracle Cards and Activators, by Lightstar

Contemplation: “Silence, Knowing, Releasing Control.”

~ (Image connected with Sedona Color Ray)

Celestial Interpretation: “Contemplation resonates to the quiet power that lies deeply within the soul. This beautiful ray of loving peace removes challenges and helps the soul turn to the Higher Self for answers. It gently allows the peaceful tranquility of Spirit to divinely step forward. It is in this very place that all true knowing exists. No need to do; rather just to be. In living from the All That Is as the primary place of rest and comfort, the soul finds its most restorative teacher.”

The Oracle Interpretation: “It is time to go deeply within. Only you have the answers you seek. You are being asked to quiet the mind chatter and do some form of meditation for peace. Take the path of least resistance. It may be time to take a much needed vacation or relaxing getaway. Quiet and stillness will be best for you now.”

Companion Essential Oils: “Blue Lotus, Sandalwood”
Companion Tree: “Spruce”*

We made it through Christmas and now there is work to be done. The countdown is on to the end of 2017 and the start of the new year. The next few days should be used wisely; to set our intentions for what we wish to create in 2018.

Today is about clarity. Contemplate what you wish to manifest into your reality. How the next chapter of your life is going to look, feel like, sound like, even smell like! Use your thoughts, feelings and all of your senses and your vivid imagination to create. These are your most powerful tools, use them wisely. There is no time here for limitations, worries, doubts and fears. Take charge and focus only on what you desire.

This is not about control, about the how something will play out, but the what you want and why. What do you wish to create? How would that feel? The rest is up to the Universe. Trust, have faith that if you are clear and your energy is focused and not scattered, you will be successful. You can create anything you put your heart and soul into.

Take some time to yourself today. Some time to be quiet, calm, peaceful and relaxed. Do a walking meditation outside; or sit in your favourite spot and meditate. Play some soothing music (I personally love Solfeggio, which will assist you in your manifestation, check youtube for lots of free options). Create something if you have a passion, painting, drawing, writing, playing music, dancing or singing. Move the energy. Create.

Journal. Write down how you want to feel and why. Write down what you wish to pursue; what you desire to create.

Dream it into form and breathe it into life.

For the Highest Good Of All and So it Is.

Namaste

The transformation you are going through may create some friction in your life. You may find that you are no longer in alignment with certain relationships, occupations or lifestyle choices. Things that once appealed to you no longer hold your attention, and truths that you may have chosen to ignore are now too glaringly obvious.

This can cause fear and discomfort. It can cause people who are close to you to object. It may cause judgment and it may even cause rejection. Try not to take it to heart, it is all part of the process.

It is time to reflect back on whether there were times in the recent past that you saw evidence that you had outgrown a particular situation and yet felt unable to deal with it. Maybe you were afraid to hurt someone; or you were afraid your financial situation wasn’t strong enough for changes to be made. Maybe you felt obligated to someone or something. Or maybe you just chose to ignore it out of fear of the new, the unknown.

But now you do know it, and this knowing comes from deep within. There is no hiding from this knowledge. There is only opportunity for change.

Use the reflection to see the truth. Use it to make positive changes; necessary changes.

Use it to change your external world to match your internal world.

Namaste

Sanctuary

Published March 23, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sanctuary, from the Sacred Geometry For the Visionary Path Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sanctuary, from the Sacred Geometry For the Visionary Path Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Sanctuary: “Refuge and Renewal”

“This green cathedral is offered as a sacred space and refuge from the world for a time. It evokes the energy of deep connection with nature and represents a place of rest and renewal. DNA spirals connect the peace dove above with the place of heart that dwells within every one of us. The double helix of our DNA spins a remembering of our divinity and accelerates our participation in conscious evolution.

You have much to do upon the Earth. Realize that however in tune you are with evolving purpose, however fast you are shifting paradigms, there will be times when it is necessary for you to retreat in order to renew your vitality and reconnect with your sacred center.

Set aside time for stillness. Allow a sense of peaceful tranquility to pervade your consciousness. You may want to walk into the forest and listen to the voices of nature. Sit quietly in that energy and feel how your mind is calmed and your Spirit renewed. Listen to the messages that you receive in this meditative interval. Allow that simply ‘being’ is at least as important as all the doing that consumes most lives. If you are unable to be in nature, find a place of sanctuary in your home, church or city. Use this card to symbolically assist you in evoking a sense of renewal and equanimity.

Remember that the emotions of love and compassion influence the harmonics of the heart and the renewal of life force. Mindfully honour the sanctuary of quiet moments.”

Sanctuary as Challenger: “You are moving so fast that you are at risk for accidents. SLOW down.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Yesterday we were asked to take stock of how busy our lives are, how we are spending our time and where our stress levels are at. Today, regardless of whether you fall into the category of “everything’s under control” or “totally stressed” we are being asked to take a breather and reflect on where we are and the process that got us here, and where we are headed next.

Globally, we are undergoing a massive shift of consciousness, and no matter what is going on for each of us on a personal level, we must honour this collective process. The best way to do this is to get outside and get grounded back to our Great Mother, Gaia. Breathing in some fresh air, connecting with the trees, the plants, the birds and the animals brings us back to the present moment. It helps us to detach from any drama and put things into perspective; it also helps us to remember our part in the bigger picture. This should be a regular ritual for you, going into the forest or to the beach to reconnect and take some time to reflect and recharge your energy.

Know that by doing so, you will be able to meet your life fully present, with clarity, balance and peace.

And so it is

Namaste

Hanging Man

Published September 11, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Hanging Man, from The Sirian Starseed Oracle Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Hanging Man, from The Sirian Starseed Oracle Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hanging Man, from The Sirian Starseed Oracle Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Hanging Man: “Like a pre-born infant in the womb, reversing itself to prepare for passage out of the state of suspended animation of one world and into the next, Hanging Man is observing reality from an inverted perspective. He is the stilled pendulum, at rest: a potential energy disengaged, floating, meditating, surrendering.

Starseed is confronted with the possibility that there will be times on the path when she or he will need to look at things from a different perspective. There will be epiphanies, when reversals will bring opportunities to be reborn. Sacrificing one’s position on an issue and looking at it from another direction may bring enlightenment.

Hanging Man appears to be waiting to be reborn, as many of us describe it, into a new spiritual consciousness. He (or she) is on a vision quest, opening to an altered state of awareness, experiencing new insights.

This key is associated with meditation, selflessness, new perspectives, reversal of ideas, silence, stillness.

When a querent works with this key, the questions that arise might be the following: What do I need to meditate on? How do I need to look at things in a different way? What am I waiting for clarity on? How am I feeling suspended in time – on hold? How can I let go of any desired outcome in the matter and just relax? How am I stuck?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

We have been working hard on ourselves, particularly over these last few days. We have been bringing the shadows into the light. Shedding all the those old layers. Building ourselves back up with more love and light than we ever thought possible. We are surrendering to the Divine plan. And now, we are being asked to throw away the remnants of all of our outmoded belief systems. This includes releasing all vestiges of old limitations that we may have set up to protect ourselves, or we may have had projected upon us by others and have continued to honour unnecessarily. We no longer need to be protected from ourselves. We must move forward with a new perspective about what is possible.

Every morning and every night ask that you be filled with as much light as you can possibly hold in your physical body at this moment in time. By doing this, you allow your cells to be flooded with Light. Each time you ask, you will receive. Each time you will receive more than the last. You will raise your vibration and you will change your physical form as you do so. You will literally become Lighter. You can also ask to be filled with the high vibrational resonance of joy, love and happiness, even ecstasy. By the Grace of the Universe.

Turn off your television and step back from the drama to heal yourself for as you do so, you heal those around you and the planet. Take time to meditate. Take time to incorporate deep breathing into your day as this is the bridge to the higher dimensions. Drink more pure water. Eat Lighter, plant based foods. Get outside every day. Incorporate music for the purpose of healing and uplifting.

These rituals will assist you in shifting your perspective. They will purify you, body, mind and spirit and quantum jump you into ascension. With a brand new perspective of just what is possible.

Namaste

Strength

Published April 26, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Strength, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Strength, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Strength, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Strength: “Silence envelopes them. She crouches very close, but not too close. The wolf holds himself still, just a heartbeat away from trust. She may have been waiting there for days or moments. It does not matter to her. There is no impatience, no anxiety in her. With concentration born of love, she stills her own breathing, quiets her heart. She becomes only acceptance. And she waits for as long as it takes, content to feel the wolf’s warmth near her.

The moment cannot be hurried. There is no forcing the matter. She wants to know him, both his nobility and his wildness. More than that, though, she wishes to feel what he feels. She wants to understand him. She is going to witness the moment when he moves from wariness to trust. If she can just see that, then she can embrace the beast inside her. A breeze wafts over them. The moon moves across the sky. Finally his breathing quiets, almost matching hers. His heartbeat slows, and hers seeks to join it. They inhale, so close. Exhale. The next breath they take as one. Neither moves, but both are changed.”

Divinatory Meaning: “In a card named Strength, one might expect amazing feats of physical prowess or of defeating foes. In the Hidden Realm, there is another kind of strength and a specific kind of challenge. We all have our wild parts, aspects of ourselves that have grown careless or reckless or fearful through life experiences that left us wounded, or parts of ourselves that society or individuals have told us are shameful. We deem these parts of ourselves unlovable and hide them away. But they do not stay hidden, lashing out instead in surprising ways that we cannot seem to control. Those parts of us have value. This card represents the most difficult kind of strength: the strength to face and love ourselves, to accept and heal, and eventually to integrate so that we can be whole again. This journey is ongoing, for just as we heal one wound, another often appears. In a reading, this card lets you know that, whatever your question, inner healing and forgiveness are part of the answer.”*

~ by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

It takes strength and courage to face our shadow side. It takes even more strength and courage to allow that shadow side to come out of the dark and integrate into our true authentic selves; visible to the world. When we hide behind masks to gain the approval of others, our wild side screams with anger and frustration. When we stomp out our fire to keep ourselves small for the happiness of others, it makes that wild side wilder. Eventually, it simply cannot be contained.

It is time to step into the light. There is nothing bad or wrong with your true authentic self. When you make the decision to integrate, it may make others uncomfortable, as they have their vision and their expectations of you in place, and they may not wish to make the effort on their own part to accept you the way that you really are. But regardless of this, it is time to step into your power. Do it with love and self acceptance. For the Highest Good of All. Align with your Higher Self and move forward fearlessly. And that is how you will find your life’s path.

And so it is,

Namaste
