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 earthy 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 human kind 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 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 guidance 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?”*

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

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

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

Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard, from the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Snow Leopard, from the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Snow Leopard, from the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Snow Leopard: “Take some time out from your usual life and spend it in solitude.”

“It can be difficult these days to spend time in solitude – to unplug, get off the electronic grid, and find a quiet place in or near Nature – yet is is so important to do so at this time. Turn off the phone, computer and television, if only for a few hours. Although you may feel a little anxious and restless when you first do so, these feelings will pass. Use this time for contemplation and meditation. It is not isolation; it is solitude. Solitude is a conscious and loving choice to be alone for a period of time, while isolation is a habitual and reflexive coping pattern to avoid discomfort and intimacy. If possible, take a full day by yourself, and just do whatever you feel like doing. Whatever length of time you spend in solitude, be sure to write as often as you can in your journal.

If you should feel guilty or anxious about the thought of doing this or even while you are actually doing it, use your breath to help you to relax. As much as you possibly can during the period of alone time, remind yourself to breathe and relax. Whenever you notice your breathing becoming shallow, take three or four slow, deep breaths and watch how your tension and anxiety dissipate. enjoy the feeling of having the sacred space of solitude surrounding you. And remember: You are never really alone.”

Associations For This Card: Solitude; Self-reliance; Balance: Silence: Stealth: Confidence; Determination; Perseverance; Containment; Sensitivity; Intuition; Reliability; Mysterious; Integration; Shamanism.”*

~by Stephen D Farmer

It’s time to unplug again for a bit, gain some perspective. We are so over stimulated, and overburdened, stressed and overwhelmed. It’s all part of the conspiracy. Keep us so completely distracted; keep us from connecting to the Divine. Yes, the electronic world has it’s place, but balance is vitally necessary. We must have both: the natural, spiritual connection to Mother Gaia and all of her creations; and we must have a way to communicate information faster and faster as we accelerate our awareness and consiousness. How else will we achieve One World being?

But for now, we must unplug from the phones and ipads and ipods, computers and games and televisions… and get outside. Reconnect with the elemental energies; fire, earth, air, water and ether. Reconnect with the Earth, her trees and plants and creatures; birds and animals alike. We can learn so much from our animal spirit guides, but we may not be able to hear them over the din of text messages, Youtube videos and Facebook messages.

Sometimes we just need to get out there and breathe. Touch the trees. Tilt our faces up to the sun. Feel the breeze on our skin. Dip our toes in the water. Walk barefoot upon the Earth.

It’s the best medicine there is. For body, mind and spirit.

Namaste

Sige ~ Quiet Time

Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sige ~ Quiet Time, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Sige ~ Quiet Time: “Take some quiet time alone to rest, meditate, and contemplate.”

Message From Sige: “Shhh, dearest one. Quiet your mind. Breathe and let go of words, worry, and plans. Go into that space of silence deep within you, that vortex of peace where the world does not enter. Now is the time to retreat in silence and spand time alone. I will lovingly help you to rejuvenate and recenter yourself. Do not try to make any decisions now. Just allow your mind to be at rest. You will know soon enough when it is time to take cation. But for now, quiet your mind. Rest.”

Various Meanings Of This Card: Go on a retreat. Listen more and talk less. Avoid loud noise and sounds. Meditate. Surrender mind chatter to heaven. Know that you are more sensitive to noise now.

About Sige (pronounced Sig or Seej): The Gnostic goddess Sige is considered to be that great silence or void from which all creation sprang. Sige reminds us that worlds create duality, and that in silence, we find our true origin and self. Quiet is omnipresent power that gives birth to wisdom, just as the Gnostics hold that Sige is the mother of Sophia, the goddess of wisdom. Sige teaches that our roots are in the silent void of the universe, and that it is important for us to reconnect with silence regularly.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

You may have felt a lot of pressure lately to make a decision. Rather than push, you must surrender. What will be, will be. You cannot hasten the plan; Divine timing must be acknowledged. Breathe and know that your angels and guides are working behind the scenes to align you with the best possible outcome for your current predicament. Have faith that everything will work out in the end, in ways that you cannot possibly control. Surrender.

This is not a time to force an issue, it is time to wait it out. Progress is being made, you just can’t see it yet. Use affirmations to calm your mind, focusing on the intention that everything will work out for the highest good of everyone involved. Focus on joy, peace, abundance, health and happiness, but do not use parameters at this time. Expect the unexpected without putting pressure on yourself, and know that things can change for the better in a heartbeat when the Universe is on your side.

Avoid people who put extra stress or pressure on you at this time, you may not have the extra energy to put in to trying to appease them. Instead, surround yourself with flowers, pets, children and like minded people, who love and appreciate you as you are. Spend as much time outside as you can, and pay close attention to the birds and animals as they work as messengers for your angels and guides.

Make time each day for some deep breathing, yoga or mediation, directing your focus inside and listening.

You may just be surprised with what you hear.

Namaste

Lake ~ Stillness

Published June 27, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Lake ~ Stillness, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Lake ~ Stillness: “The subdued pastels of the early morning light quietly announce that the night is over and the sun is rising. The lake itself has not awakened from its rest and remains still and undisturbed. It welcomes the coming day, ready to respond with grace and fluidity to whatever currents and movements appear in its belly or upon its skin. The surrounding vegetation thrives from the abundant water near the shoreline, and the unoccupied boat lies in wait for its next passenger. All is at rest in this scene.

It is in the deep, internal stillness that we find our Being and come to know that we are intimately united with all of Creation. To achieve this mindset, we must slow down once in a while and get away from the surroundings that interfere and distract our inner tranquility. When we do so, this profound stillness is available at all times, regardless of the environment. We can experience this sensation with steady, conscious breathing; or we can simply pause for a few moments and be still.

The tempo of life these days has sped up considerable, and there seems to be no end to this quickening pace. Immersed as we are in the technological whirlpool, there seems no escape. However, there is no need to be a prisoner to the “hurry up” syndrome, nor is there a need to feel trapped by the awareness of the collective intensities that massive numbers of humans are experiencing these days.

No matter if the noise is from your environment or your seemingly nonstop thinking, it is critical for you to seek stillness. Find it in your world, whether it is a special place in your home or a place in Nature that is far from human made noise. Of particular importance is finding it inside yourself, which can be made easier by being in a quiet place in a natural setting. Doing so not only relaxes your mind, but also heightens your awareness and senses.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Water symbolizes the emotions and a lake, to me, could symbolize deep emotions, but also a large surface area. You may be feeling bombarded from every side right now. Trying not to spread yourself too thin, yet so much to do and each moment seems accounted for before it even happens. This is when overwhelm kicks in and we can find ourselves feeling overemotional… about things that we may not normally feel emotional about.

It’s vital right now to commit to carving out some time to just Be. Just breathe. Take a break, even for a few moments at a time to put things in perspective. How many of these issues are just drama, and what is the root of it all, way down in the depths?

Take a few breaths and imagine yourself, barefoot, at the edge of the lake in the picture above, or your favourite lake. Close your eyes and breathe in the smell of the lake; misty, dewy and fragrant. Feel the trees, the plants and the animals all around you, lending you their strength and stillness. Take a step forward and put your feet in the lake, feeling the cool, crisp, invigorating water all around your feet. You might decide that you want to keep walking and eventually swim, or you may contemplate your reflection in the lake, asking it what you need right now, using it as a window to your higher self. Whatever feels right to you. If you are swimming you could dive down into the surprisingly clear water, feeling young and free and energized. Amazed at how long you can hold your breath for, or maybe finding that you can breathe under this water, you swim deeper and deeper, feeling completely safe and secure. Down at the bottom of the lake, there is a message written in the sand, just for you. As you get closer you can read it as the sun beams right down into the water. What is your message? Send a blessing to the lake, and gratitude for the message, and begin to leisurely swim back up to the surface. As you swim up to the surface, you realize how much lighter you feel, for with each kick and each stroke, you shed some of the stress and worry that has been weighing you down lately. All transmuted into the lake, in exchange for this new lightness of being. You break through the surface feeling like a completely new person. Revitalized, replenished, capable, strong and liberated. As you reach the shore, you know that this lake is always here for you, always willing to assist you to process any of the emotions that feel heavy or dense. Looking back at the lake, you lift your palms to the sky and take a few more long, slow, deep breaths. Knowing in your heart that this you are transformed.

Smiling. From the inside, out.

Namaste
