Capacity To Love: “It takes courage to open up and heal areas of deep vulnerability”

“Each human individual is created with a profound longing to feel loved. Out of this need for love, you may exaggerate and parade your fascinating qualities, while masking your weaknesses or fears. If you are not committed to looking at your root issues, you will feel disconnected from your true self.

Take a moment to look at how you are handling yourself. Are you being open and honest? Are you withdrawing from a situation? Are you masking a problem with some sort of avoidance tactic such as shopping, drinking, or eating excessively? Are you holding grudges?

When your heart is open, you will find that your actions tend to match your words. You rarely get offended. You are emotionally available. When your heart is open, you truly take responsibility for who you are and what your beliefs are. You love yourself more completely. Conflict resolves more easily and you have a desire to live in harmony with others.

Ganesha’s trunk represents the ability to consider how you are perceiving this situation which is significant in your spiritual growth. An elephant’s trunk is an important appendage that is used in its day to day functioning – it serves to remove trees and other large obstacles as well as for more fiddly tasks such as breaking open fruits to eat. An elephant has the capability to handle a range of tasks from minute ones to those requiring great strength. In this way, Ganesha’s trunk is an emblem of his great intelligence and his extraordinary capacity for love. Rely on your own vast array of abilities to tackle your problems and know that Ganesha is supporting you in this process.”*

You deserve love. Divine love, family love, romantic love, love from your animal friends, love from your friends. You deserve to be surrounded by unconditional Love and support and true acceptance. How does that make you feel?

Do you shut down when you think of receiving love? Or do you open your heart, mind and arms wide to receive it? Do you feel completely worthy of Love? Are you able to give love and allow yourself to receive love in equal balance, or do you feel that you must give much more than you receive in order to be worthy? Do you see those you love or those who love you as above or below you? Or do you see yourself equal to all others?

These are all questions to ponder in order to see patterns in your life and your relationships. This is where the healing begins. It is so important to see ourselves as worthy and equal to others in loving relationships, and maintain a harmonious give and take of love and affection. We deserve it. They deserve it.

We are all One in Love.

Crow ~ Law

Published March 15, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Crow ~ Law, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, artwork by Karen Branchflower, published by Blue Angel

Crow ~ Law: “As a creature of the Void, Crow is believed to exist in the past, present and future simultaneously, to embody darkness within light and light within darkness and to watch over all the worlds and dimensions from all viewpoints in chorus. She makes little distinction between right and wrong, but acknowledges the necessity for the existence of both. Without them, we would not learn the lessons afforded by choice.

According to legend, when Crow appears, she is challenging our perceptions while daring us to follow her deep into the Void, into our consciousness, to strengthen our principles and our relationship with Spirit. Crow encourages us to seek the wisdom found in the inner silence and to ponder our actions and reactions to life. We inherently know the difference between right and wrong. Crow asks us, therefore, to trust our judgment and make the most sensible decision when one is required.

Her appearance generally heralds a sudden but necessary change, a wake up call or a lesson in self-discovery.

Crow is one of the sacred keepers of universal law and the custodian of ancient records. She espouses the law of three; the understanding that whatever we do will be returned to us threefold, that it matters not what we do in this life so long as our actions bring harm to none. She reminds us that all our actions are recorded and, although karma appears patient, it is often ruthless in its delivery. To understand these laws and to live by them with the purest intent, we see us exit this life and journey to the next with a clear memory of our previous life and the lessons learned during that time.

If Crow has flown into your cards today, listen to your instincts and act upon them in a way that honourably serves your purpose. Treat others as you would like to be treated, never expect others to do what you should do yourself and never act in a way that may cause harm to another. Breaking these simple rules will see the strong-arm of spiritual law slam down the karmic hammer.

You have all the wisdom and knowledge you need within you to make the right decision. Call upon it now and you cannot make a mistake.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

Karma is a powerful force. You don’t want to mess with it. I have seen karma at work and it is interesting to see that most often, people are unaware that they are living their karma, even though it may seem so obvious to an outsider. Karma will often serve up the exact same situation for someone as they have put someone in. It is not about the details, it’s about the emotional impact. Losing everything that is important to you. Think Harvey Weinstein. You want something so you take it. And it comes back to bite you in the end.

Karma is not an issue when you are working from a heart centered space. It is not an issue when you are setting the intention that any action or resolution be for the highest good of All concerned. Karma can be kind too, but it works best when you are not expecting anything in return.

Crow is here to remind us all to do the right thing. Take the high road, even if someone else is not. Do not lower yourself to anyone elses’s level. Rise above the drama. Even if it looks as if you might lose something over it. Know that as one door shuts, another one opens. And what is behind that door is directly related to how you handle the situation.

Lead with love, no matter how challenging and you will always win.

Live by the threefold law with each and every choice you make.

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Nuumite ~ Healer, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman, Published by Sterling Ethos

Nuumite ~ Healer:

Crystal Color: “Black with gold and brown streaks”
Related Chakras: “All”

Crystal Medicine: “Nuumite holds within it the powerful medicine of the healer and the shaman. It assists in all aspects of the healer’s journey, especially working with the shadow and the powerful journey into the darkness or the void bringing light and wisdom to the soul. Those who connect and work with this stone will embark on a powerful journey of deep healing and self-realization.”

Crystal Meaning: “Stone of the warrior and shaman. Support on the journey into your shadow self, creating a sacred space to obtain deep wisdom, strength, and courage. Increases strength and endurance during difficult times. Assists on the journey to self-mastery. Assists to love all aspects of yourself.”

Oracle reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have called this card into your awareness today to remind you that you are a gifted and powerful healer. We are all healers in some way or another and the devas of Nuumite are inviting you to allow this part of yourself to emerge and awaken fully. You are entering a time of initiation when your innate healing power is being activated within you on a deeper level. Ancient memories are stirring and your soul’s wisdom is flowing through you more than ever. It is time to embrace your inner healer and recognize and honor your healing gifts and powers. There are times in life when it is necessary to receive healing from others – however, the most powerful healer in truth is yourself. It is time to look within and access your own healing medicine.

You may also feel guided to seek the support of a professional healer. If so, follow your intuition and inner guidance as you choose the most suitable healer for you.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Again we have a message of healing. Self healing. Looking within. Nuumite is the most ancient of stones, containing all the magic and mystery of the Universe. Healing must happen on every level. Physical and etherical. Bringing things back into balance, body, mind and spirit.

Nuumite is the stone of the warrior and the Shaman, this should be an indication that things may be a little challenging here. We must step out of our comfort zones and move into new territory. Sweeping out the darkest corners of our hearts and minds we can bring our pain and suffering into the light to be cleansed, cleared and healed.

This is an amazing healing stone for those of us who have soldiered on through the pain and trauma, putting it off, acknowledging it but not taking the time to fully heal. Nuumite will protect us and guide us through and out the other side into transformation. It is no coincidence that this stone is black shot through with gold.

If you have a Nuumite, hold it while you meditate, asking for guidance. Wear it, keep it close. Place it under you pillow and ask for the Deva to accompany you during your dreamtime into the astral realms.

Pass through this healing willingly, surrender to what must happen in order to bring about the necessary change. There are exciting things coming and we need to be ready.

Archangel Raphael ~ Healing

Published March 12, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Archangel Raphael ~ Healing, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Archangel Raphael ~ Healing, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Archangel Raphael ~ Healing:

“As soon as you trust yourself you will know how to live.”
~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

“Raphael means ‘God cures.’ Though Raphael is charged with the healing of the Earth and all its inhabitants, he gives full credit to God. His first mission is to purify the activities of the outer mind, to uplift your thinking and erase any false beliefs. With an open mind and heart, your unshakable faith emerges, lifting your consciousness to your Eternal Self. Raphael’s next mission is to repair your cells, tissues and organs, and purify your bloodstream. Now your body beings to take in nourishment from the pure essence of spiritual Light. Your heart center bursts open in a lightening flash of love as your rate of vibration increases, causing bodily sensations you never dreamed possible. You become a center of pure, unconditional love. This tangible vibration spreads to the other centers of your body, revealing amazing gifts of Spirit that have been sleeping for so long.

All healing facilities and practitioners are under the watchful eye of Raphael and his legions. The angelic hosts are especially delighted when they find open hearts and minds through which to work. At least three healing angels enfold each hospital in curative light, working to life suffering, bring hope and ease pain. Your prayers will call a single angel and if it is determined that the life of the patient is not yet finished, the angels will work to arrest illness, enlighten the patient, and inspire the doctors. Healing angels clear congested areas in the etheric body so that the flow of cosmic energy can heal both the cause and its physical manifestation. They are most active in the dark of the night when the life forces are the lowest. Whenever you visit a hospital or healing facility, send your love and gratitude to these blessed ones for their tireless assistance.

Those healing and bringing beauty to Earth are under the influence of Raphael. Ask him how to absorb beauty directly into your soul to promote healing. Call on Raphael to guide you in the creation of a healing space. Use the music of Israfel, the beauty and fragrance of Iofiel, the purity of Shushienae, the peace of Kaeylarae, the harmony of Charmiene and the Faith of Uzziel along with his transformative powers. Consciously attune to the healing angels to invoke a cleansing and purifying atmosphere that facilitates physical, mental, and emotional healing. Once called, the angels direct the perfect process of healing, providing a cocoon of comfort, understanding and love.

Your body is your creation. It tells you what is working and what isn’t. At birth, most of us were given a beautiful, vital body, sustained by the natural free flow of the universal energy. Look how tireless and spontaneous young children are. They eat when hungry, sleep when tired, and fully express their feelings. As life experiences leave their impression, negative habits develop. They may help us survive, but they also impede our flow of natural energy. Chronic negative behaviors are reflected in the body as aches and pains, fatigue and minor illness. When you don’t notice, there signals then get stronger until there is a serious or fatal result. You can choose to do whatever it takes to be healed, or give up the body.

The body has a consciousness and feelings and is important in our evolution. Learn to listen to your body and love it. When you are suffering, give it your full attention rather than blocking out distress with medications. If you are experiencing intense pain, this may be difficult in the beginning. Go into the pain with a prayer in your heart for God to fill you with healing energy. Try to match the intensity of your prayer to the intensity of your suffering, but don’t force yourself. God is in pain as well as in ecstasy and love. When your prayer goes to the deepest recesses of your soul, God comes to transform the pain. Have courage! When symptoms become more than you can tolerate, do what you need to rest from your suffering until you are ready to face it again.

Health and Vitality are natural. Your symptoms give clues along the way to help you find causes of imbalance. Allow your body to release deep feelings in ways it wants to, often through movement and sound. As your feelings are accepted, even welcomed, use your mind to pull in healing light. In this way, both the mind and the body will open up to healing and balance.

When feelings are suppressed, they stay in your body where they were originally felt. The area goes numb and stays frozen in a hard lump that is no longer able to vibrate with energy. If you are suppressing awareness of the trauma, this pain can follow you for lifetimes, until you are finally ready to face it. Body work with the right person can help you find these pockets and release work will allow transformation.

Evaluate your situation and lifestyle. What are you doing to yourself? If you are tired, rest. Eat the healthy foods your body needs. If you habitually smoke, use caffeine, alcohol, or drugs, eat junk foods, or stress yourself, go deep within and ask what you are trying to learn. Take action in your life to honour the feelings of your body. This may require changing jobs, homes, relationships, friends, habits, lifestyle. It is the denial of your knowing that makes you sick. You have the power to change! Seek whatever help you need to accept your true feelings. Ask Raphael to send his angels to guide you with clarity and love in your process of healing.”*

Our number one priority should be these amazing temples we live in… yet they are not. We abuse them. Hate them. Wear them out. Wish they looked different. Ignore them when they have something important to tell us.

Why? Why do we do this?

It’s all conditioning. Social conditioning. It’s how we were raised. It’s how society functions… well Western Society at least, I cannot speak for other cultures. We wait until something breaks after years of misuse then we bandage it up and continue on down the same road. Or we make the symptoms go away with a drug that will mask them, at least temporarily with a list of side effects longer than our arms.

Not that I am saying that medical attention is not necessary. It’s the preventative stuff I’m talking about. If you need medical attention, get it, now, before things get any worse. But make the necessary lifestyle changes to support your treatment. Permanently. Yup. Permanently. You deserve no less.

Smoking, drinking, drugs, poor diet, dehydration and lack of exercise is rampant in this day and age. But on the flip side, it could be done for all the wrong reasons too. Exercising only to look good and punishing your body with steroids or crazy fad diets is equally damaging long term as sitting on the couch all day. Sitting is the new smoking. Smoking… well I can’t say I even get it, no judgment but it is so seriously damaging to your body and your health on every level, it would be very worth considering giving it up. Like today.

We work ourselves into the ground to buy stuff we don’t need. We get in debt. We struggle. And yet if we decided to simplify our lives maybe we could escape some of the health concerns this lifestyle presents. And don’t forget the most important factor. The dreaded stress that makes us do most of the stuff that is bad for us. The reason we crave what we crave is usually to numb the pain. Take a good long look at what you are doing that is damaging your health and why. Be gentle with yourself. But be firm. Then take full responsibility.

If you are struggling with your health, commit to making some positive changes, starting today. Take control of your diet. Drink more water. Get some fresh air and exercise every single day. Yes, every day, you deserve it! Cut things out that are damaging to your body, mind and spirit. Wean yourself slowly, it doesn’t have to all happen today. But the commitment does. You are worthy of the best health you can have. Starting today. Ask Archangel Raphael to help you make the necessary changes.

Make different choices, one by one, day by day. And everything will change. Every single one of us has something we can do to transform ourselves in a positive and healthy way.

You got this.

Pay Attention To Signs

Published March 11, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Pay Attention To Signs, from the Heal Yourself Reading Cards, by Inna Segal, Illustrations by Cris Ortega and Drazenka Kimpel published by RockPool

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Pay Attention To Signs, from the Heal Yourself Reading Cards, by Inna Segal, Illustrations by Cris Ortega and Drazenka Kimpel published by RockPool

Pay Attention To Signs: “Signs are all around you. Open your mind and pay closer attention to your environment.”

“Your angels know that you have been feeling lost about the direction you need to take in your life and the decisions you need to make. They have heard your frustrations and your pleas for help. They ask you to slow down, stop focusing on the problem and allow a solution to come into your reality.

Your spiritual helpers have been organizing synchronistic events and support for you, but you keep thinking in the same stubborn way. Relax and look at life in a more creative way.

Pay attention to repetitive signs and signals. A sign can come in the form of a song, a movie, a book, nature, animals, people, thoughts, dreams, visions, etc.

At times your body also give you signs. Your body may be telling you to rest, change your diet or to work on challenging emotions. Be sure to take these signals seriously.”

Action: “Do this with a friend: Put on a song. Dance freely. Have your friend stop the song between two to three minutes. When the music stops, make a gesture. From that position think about your challenge from a different perspective. Ask for a sign then repeat the exercise with a new song four to five times. Record all important insights.

Over the next week, pay attention to signs from your environment as well as from your dreams.”*

~ By Inna Segal

I have done many posts about the importance of communicating with the Universe. Many reminders not to write things off to mere ‘coincidence’ and to accept what we are offered in the form of signs, symbols, messages, dreams, spirit guides and the natural world. The messages are real. And the more you are willing to receive them, the more you will get, it really is that simple.

It could be as simple as an overheard snippet of conversation in the change room at yoga, or in the lineup at the coffee shop. It could be a song that has very special meaning to you, or the lyrics that jump right out with the perfect message. It could be dimes or white feathers found in the strangest places. I once had a perfect white feather float down onto my yoga mat in the middle of a smoking hot Bikram class, what are the chances, it literally came out of nowhere! I have been finding pennies all over my house in the last couple of days… Canada doesn’t even honour pennies anymore, I hadn’t seen one in ages, and got not one but three!

It is up to us to be observant, and to accept what we are being given. Ask for a sign and receive one… but do not doubt it! Know in your heart that it is the confirmation that you seek; or that there is a clue hidden in there to lead you forward on your journey.

Have faith in the Universe. You are loved and supported. Watch for the signs.

The Human Gift

Published March 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Human Gift, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Richard Cohn and artwork by Rassouli, Published by Blue Angel

The Human Gift:

O heart!
What is your excuse for all these blunders?
Such loyalty is offered by the beloved,
yet so much treason comes from you.

Such kindness is offered by the beloved,
yet so much defiance and resistance comes from you.
Such grace is offered by the beloved,
yet so much fault and failure comes from you.

Such attraction is offered by the beloved,
with sweetness and generosity,
yet such jealousy comes from you,
with so much doubt and suspicion.”


“Do you bemoan your lack of faith? Do you berate yourself, blazing angel, because you have moments where you cannot bring yourself to trust in love more than you trust in your fear? Do you lament and worry that you could, or should, be living in greater surrender? And yet, when is light more precious than when it arises from darkness? When is trust more admirable than when it involves an uncertain, yet bold, leap of faith? Oh human angel, your path is perfection in the divine sense – not in some artificial absence of struggle, but in the wrestling of darkness and light that ignites the fire within your holy heart.

So rise up now from your doubts and admonishments, and let your human self be loved. Even for all the doubt, you are still a cherished one of the Great Beloved and always shall be.”

“Be kind to your heart. You may believe it to be weary from doubt and distrust, so much heartbreak and so many agonies, yet still it beats. Still it persists, with unquestioning allegiance to life. What a grand heart it is, this sacred heart of yours. How can it be worthy of anything other than tenderness, gratitude, acknowledgment and appreciation?

Do not plague your heart with falsehoods and expectations of some disembodied perfection! The perfection of your heart is that is loves still, even if you try to stop it with some notion of self-protection from future hurt through doubt or fear – still it loves. It is perfection that it hopes even after despair, that it holds compassion even after experiences of fear. So then, what is there left to do but breathe the grandest sigh of relief and allow yourself the essential luxury of peace within? So then, everything is all right – even if at some moments it seems not to be, still, your heart beats in honour of life. The heart can be nurtured and coaxed into gentle acceptance of all that is and the divine sight will become available to you.

It will be something you can come to count on at all times, and in that, gain greater peace and the realization that, yes, it is safe to trust and surrender! Indeed, it is the only safe, sane and sensible way to live. It is also the most fun way to live! And you are allowed to live this way if you so choose. It is not shirking your duty as a responsible adult! It is not deluding yourself and turning away from the real world! Rather, surrender is placing responsibility where it is best placed – firmly in the hands of that part of you wise enough to know the Great Beloved is wiser still, and that your life unfolds according to the Great Beloved’s grace.

So, for now, take comfort in this oracle. Just for a moment, let your heart be honoured and loved by you, and imagine that you can crack open a window in the dustiest chamber of your own heart temple to let the light of the Divine stream in. You may see the angel reaching to assist you: you may receive the gift of understanding, insight and revelation; you may feel peace; or you may finally allow your heart to break once more to shed those old grievances and be free and fresh to live and love again. Or you may quietly realize you are human, you are light and dark, of heaven and earth. What a perfect blend you are of all that can possibly be. You are an extraordinary, living divine experiment in the making. And you are sacred, cherished and loved by the Great Beloved. So do not fear your fear, but do doubt your doubt with compassion. Let it be and let it go. You are human after all, and your journey is beyond description. Just remember, if you are ever in need of the Great Beloved, there is a place where sacred tryst is always available to you; in the temple of your heart with the window cracked open, so that doubt can fly out and love can breathe freely.

This oracle comes with special guidance for you. You are, or soon will be, seeing with greater clarity and insight, a situation that has been obscured to you in the past. You may be startled by what you perceive, so much so, that you second-guess yourself or chalk it up to wild imagination on your part. You are asked to trust in your perceptions that when they come for the heart – although what you perceive may be darkness – there will be no judgment in it. See what is truthfully there; be in the compassionate nature of your heart, and you shall also be shown the most graceful way to become clear and free of darkness, either within yourself or within others and the world around you.”

Sacred Honouring Ritual: “Place your hands on your heart and say the following aloud: ‘I love you. You are strong, brave and powerful. You are gentle, vulnerable and inspired. You are truth. You are insight. You are wisdom. You are life! I love you and you are safe. You are the Divine made flesh. You, my precious heart, my precious connection to life, I adore you. Thank you for loving. Let us open the inner window, let the stale emotion out, and breathe in fresh life now, for you are to be well and thrive according to love’s grace and wisdom. I trust in what you know and what you see. In compassion, I honour all perceptions of truth. So be it.”

You have finished your sacred honouring ritual.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

Love you. Accept you. Embrace your uniqueness, and your connection to All That Is. See the Divine human perfection in every flaw and imperfection of each and every one of us. Without this love we have nothing.

We are so hard on ourselves. We strive for something more, something deeper and more meaningful. We hang on long after it was necessary to let go. We are rocked by our emotions, sometimes knocked off course. We look to others, wanting and wishing that things could be different; not realizing that we sit on a goldmine of opportunity at all times. All of us, without exception.

This message is to bring you back to the most important aspect of your life, your existence. YOU! Not other people. Not more stuff. Not anything other than you. You and your gifts, your wisdom; your talents and your skills. Your big and beautiful heart. All that you can share in this lifetime… if you don’t get in your way and hold yourself back!

Know that if you can find it in your heart to forgive, accept and unconditionally love yourself, and where you are at, and what you have been through… you have the power to change it all. You are only a decision, a choice away from a brand new start. From creating something totally amazing. A new direction, a new path, a new life. Yours, if you can embrace all that you are first.

Water Element ~ Sensing

Published March 9, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Water Element ~ Sensing, from the Black Moon Astrology Oracle Card deck, by Susan Sheppard, published by Blue Angel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Water Element ~ Sensing, from the Black Moon Astrology Oracle Card deck, by Susan Sheppard, published by Blue Angel

Water Element ~ Sensing: “Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.” ~ Roger Ebert

“Let matters flow.

In astrology, the element of water represents our emotions and our talents of the imagination. Water characterizes the realm of vision taking us into the quintessential depths of feeling where intuition is more appropriate than acquired wisdom and knowledge. We get ‘carried away’ on water. We have feelings of floating or being ‘adrift’ over water. when looking a the shimmering surfaces of water we cannot see to the bottom, but we know and sense what is there – deep things too obtuse and transitory to explain, fathoms of moods and insight. Water is the element of the signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The planets of water are the Moon, Pluto and Neptune.

When the Water Element card presents itself in a spread, you can trust what you feel as the best course to follow. What you are sensing right now may not be based on any logic, it’s just that what you are sensing is correct. Right now, it is best to go with the flow and, depending upon the cars surrounding it, to trust that movement, although these changes may seem gentle and gradual.

Sometimes the Water Element card indicates a need to withdraw and fight another day. It is time to gather resources and gain strength before moving ahead. This can at times indicate trusting too soon or the passive acceptance of other people’s shortcomings when you shouldn’t accept them. You may have the tendency to want to allow things to pas you by without fighting for them, to let go of something that is rightfully yours. Water is the element of compassion and understanding. But avoid being a doormat. It is possible people or forces may take advantage of your benign and accepting nature.

This is a good time to imagine, write, paint, play or create anything, since water is the element of the imagination. It is the ability to quiet your conscious mind and allow yourself to be taken over by an idea or a dream. Water is painting, poetry, and music.

This care represents being connected to the flow of all things. It is also the ability to keep a secret or to work alone in privacy. It is probably best to now allow people or circumstances to not pin you down or hem you in. Frankly, you now have the ability to flow or drift out of any situation in the way water is able to move around obstacles very gently and easily.

Currently, you may also have the feeling of floating or being adrift. In a sense, it is a type of surrender. Maybe it is the surrender to a dream. At present, you may have little energy and want to withdraw. You are in fact doing a lot of inner processing which will take you where you want to go. There are deeper levels working and developing inside you, but the work is not seen on the outside. Expect a pause but forward motion soon.

Look inward. Don’t worry about the drama that surrounds you. Avoid the commotion, sit still, float, and trust your inner wisdom. It will not steer you wrong.”

Water Element Card In Brief: “Being led by feelings; what is felt, and what is known to be true directly through emotions, intuition; letting go or just going with the flow; extreme sensitivity; feeling shy or out of place; being quiet and introverted; subtle changes in circumstances and environment; the creative imagination; psychic dreaming; currents of emotion; confusion; fears of confronting a problem directly; feeling avoidant; mysteries and secrets; acting in a solitary or secretive way; having doubts; experiencing loneliness; walking our own path without help, timidity; feelings of guilt or shame; leaving things to chance; not pushing hard enough; giving up before time; travel near or over bodies of water, oceans, lakes or rivers; beach vacations; sea life; sea shells; overcast days; cancellations due to rain; flooding; water leaks in the home; essential oils; perfumes; candles; gentleness; feminine powers; the nourishment and nurturing of others.”

Corresponding Tarot Card; “Ace of Cups”

Key Ideas: “Emotional nuances; trips across the water; lack of energy; sensing what is accurate without being told.”*

~ By Susan Sheppard

There is a difference between trusting in your feelings, your gut instinct and your intuition, and getting caught up in your emotions. When we can tune in and look past the drama, the hurt feelings, the fear or the doubt, we can tap into what is really going on here. The ego gets caught up in right and wrong, who said what, and how we have been mistreated. The heart will tell us who we can trust, what feels light and high vibrational and what feels heavy or low vibrational. Where the ego may seek revenge or fear repeating old patterns, the heart can help us to move past the old pain and see something new.

This may be an emotional day for you, and that is ok. Honour your feelings, but do not get swept away with them. Maybe it is nostalgia, maybe it is pain from a rejection or finding out something hurtful. Maybe you can’t quite pinpoint the reason for the feelings, but there are present regardless. That is ok too. Sometimes we just feel isolated, lonely or anxious, especially with all the pressures of the present times. Give yourself some time to process these feelings, rather than trying to ignore them or stuff them down.

Get in the water if you can. Take a salt bath, or if you are lucky enough to be around an ocean, lake or river that you can immerse yourself in, even better. If you are able to take a little break, a vacation to somewhere by the sea, do it, you need it! ( I WISH…)

Don’t fight your emotions, just be with them. See if you can breathe through them, and imagine yourself rising above them, surfing the wave instead of being dragged down below it. Use this time for reflection and for the necessary healing.

This too shall pass

And so it is
