Spiritual Practice: “A spiritual practice will help ground your day. It may trigger observations that lead to life-changing breakthroughs and ideas.”

“There are many ways to maintain a spiritual connection through a committed practice. Ganesha is asking you to reflect on the benefits that may be gained by following a specific daily routine for your spirituality. This might include prayer, meditation, or an exercise schedule that connects the body, mind and spirit such as yoga or tai chi.

Additionally consider burning incense, which is often used to accompany prayers, invocations and spells in many cultures. As the incense smoke rises up to the heavens, it is said to represent the requests reaching their destination and meeting with approval from the Divine. Incense is also believed to have properties that dispel negative energy. Use incense or burn sage to create a special haven for yourself or to clear a sacred space in preparation for a special occasion or ceremony. The smell of incense can also bring about heightened spiritual awareness and realization for the user.

There are many tools and techniques that you can use through out your day to preserve or regain tranquility. Even simply taking a deep breath can restore a spiritual connection. Find what worlds for you and dedicate sometime to your practice each day.”*

I have mentioned many times that yoga has quite literally saved my life! It has brought me the sanity and peace of mind; centeredness and balance that got me through some of the most difficult times of my life to date. Daily practice. Being with  yourself, every single day is different. Every day something shifts, body, mind and spirit. Today is totally unlike yesterday and who knows what tomorrow holds. When you are in the hot room, anything could happen! I tell people that when my kids grow up and leave my nest, I will keep doing yoga. More and more yoga! I will travel and do yoga. I will go back to teaching yoga. I will happily step into a bubble of yoga that will guide me for the rest of my days.

I’ve put quite a lot of effort into my spiritual practices. I work a lot with crystals and grids. I write these posts, which gets me working with all the beautiful cards I have been blessed to work with. I read a lot. I listen to beautiful music. And yet I’m always looking for more ways to connect, more ways to heal, more ways to share. It always feels like there could be more, that there’s so much to learn. There is so much to weed through as well to see what feels right, what resonates with your heart and soul.

Commit to your spiritual practice in whatever capacity you can. Whatever feels right to you. Make an altar, learn a new form of exercise, expand your musical taste, get outside in the forest. Whatever connects you, whatever calls you. Talk to your angels and guides. Share your experiences with others, give them safe space to talk about their experiences too. Experiment with crystals, colour or energy healing modalities.

Disengage from the drama of life and get back to what matters most. Your heart and soul, your love and your light. Your biggest gifts to share.

Namaste

Dove: “Slow Down, Pause, And Breathe”

“Take a deep breath… now take another one… then another… Feel what happens in your body as you do so. This is what you need to do in the midst of any turmoil you are going through. It brings you home in body, mind and spirit, to that still place inside you where you can feel and hear your heartbeat and the rhythm of your breathing, giving you the assurance that you are alive and everything is all right.

There is really no need to worry or fret about the circumstances of your inquiry. There is not even a need for you to find a solution. The solution will find you, but only when you calm down and stop trying to figure it out from a place of fear and anxiety. You have to trust that what to do – or not to do – will become evident once you are able to center yourself. That way you can think more clearly, breathe more easily, find your faith, and remember that God and the angels are really on your side.

Additional Associations:

Love; Soul; Domesticity; Spirituality”*

~ by Stephen D Farmer

You are desperately in need of some PEACE! You must find some time to jump off the busy treadmill of this crazy life full of responsibilities and obligations, and take some time to just BREATHE. This is essential for your health and well being; and your body, mind and spirit are begging you to listen to your Soul. It’s time to take a little time off.

Ideally, we could take a weekend off and go hiking in the woods, walking on the beach or digging in the garden; reconnecting to the elements through time spent in nature will do us all a world of good. Fresh air in our lungs will clear out the cobwebs, no matter the weather. Feet on the Earth, palms or spine against the trunk of your favourite tree (or any tree for that matter!) Or if you are lucky enough to be somewhere that is blooming spring, enjoying the eye candy popping up with vibrant colours all around you can raise your vibration substantially. Nature is full of beneficial energy for us, it has everything we need in order to realign ourselves. Body, mind and spirit.

Yoga and meditation are also invaluable tools to help us get away from the chaos. Focused deep breathing and mindful body movement are excellent ways to de-stress and reset ourselves. If there is something that you have been worrying about lately, or a challenge that has presented itself, make a deal with yourself to leave it outside your yoga mat! Keep your mat a place of peace and calm; a place where your mind can take a little vacation from the everyday drama that surrounds you. As you commit to do this, you just may find that your perspective shifts, and those problems don’t seem quite so insurmountable anymore! And just as that happens? The Universe will help you solve them in ways you never even imagined possible.

Peacefully do what you love; the joy this brings you will revive your spirit!

Namaste

Selenite ~ Divine Light

Published October 2, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
 Selenite ~ Divine Light, from the Crystal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Judy Hall

Selenite ~ Divine Light, from the Crystal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Judy Hall

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Selenite ~ Divine Light, from the Crystal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Judy Hall

Selenite ~ Divine Light: “Believed to be crystallized divine light, in the ancient world Selenite protected against ‘wanderings of the mind’ as it was linked to Selene, goddess of the moon. It ivoked mental clarity and divine inspiration.

Self Understanding: Spirituality is vital for you. You are a translucent soul who moves fluidly through time to access information from other time frames – use insights wisely and do not confuse past with present. You see into people’s hearts to what motivates them. Do not be manipulated or too eager to please. Stand by what you know. You have the gift of clarity and mental flexibility with the power to make excellent decisions.

Divination: A situation is unpredictable no matter how solid it appears. Be prepared for challenges and changes. Banish confusion. Clarity is needed. Bring in spirituality: allow the divine light to inspire the future. Let go of something dear to you – parting does not mean loss of love. Reconciliation is possible, but make the first move. Overheard conversations enlighten you.

Frequency: Exceptionally high.

Chakra: Highest crown, soul star and stellar gateway.

Timing: Taurus, Cancer

Soul Path: Shining divine light on the Earth.”*

~ By Judy Hall

If you have a favourite piece of Selenite, it is calling you to work closely with it now. If you do not have any Selenite, you can use the above picture to connect for now by gazing at it and setting the intention to connect with its high vibrational frequency. Then you can put it on your shopping list! Don’t worry, it is abundant and affordable, starting at under $2 for a decently sized natural piece!

Selenite vibrates with the Moon, so it is natural that it is coming to assist us now. We are still integrating all this new cosmic energy from the most recent Blood Moon Eclipse last weekend, and Selenite will help to quicken this process. We may find that our own energies feel different, higher, lighter and more expansive. This can show itself in the opposite way as we may feel oppressed by people or situations that we… well, used to be used to!

When we ascend faster than the people or situations around us, it can create a lot of discomfort when the vibrations don’t match up anymore. Or it may force us to realize… or admit… that they never really did. We feel suffocated where we were tolerant; we feel like we are drowning in the drama and the material when we just want peace.

So now what?

Be gentle with yourself as your body, mind and spirit adjust to the new energies. Step back from stressful situations and energy draining people. Get outside as much as possible. Breathe deeply. Seek silence and contemplation. Listen to Solfeggio music. Talk to your angels and guides. Listen to your animal spirit guides. Watch for signs and synchronicities. Trust in the process.

Follow your Soul.

Consciously decide to see with new eyes this amazing planet we live on.

Love and light.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Violet, from the Angel Dreams Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

Violet: “Spirituality ~ Wisdom ~ Humility.”

“This card is here to remind you of the wisdom of humility on the spiritual path. All gifts are given equally and without discrimination.

Violet represents the blending of the red (root) and blue (third eye) chakras, which suggests that a balance of passion and calm is needed now. This card has come to help you keep a balanced perspective with respect to the practical and spiritual aspects of life.

Additional Meanings Of This Card: Archangels Sandalphon, Jeremiel, Michael, and Raziel are all associated with this symbol. It would be beneficial for you to study, and meditate on, spiritual laws and beliefs. Wear or focus on the colour violet if you are feeling depressed, socially isolated, or blocked. Place violet items by your bed to stimulate dream activity.”

– Doreen Virtue Ph.D and Melissa Virtue

The best way to stay grounded as you share your gifts is to become of service without expectation of those you assist. This does not mean that you do everything for free, or that you suffer in any way to provide to others, but rather that you set up a cycle of balanced give and take from the Universe. It means that you do what you love, helping those who need it, knowing that the Universe will always provide; for them and for you. No one is higher or lower, it is not a contest or a comparison. We do not weigh our options to see what is “in it for us” but we trust that everyone, including ourselves are worthy of only the best, and put our hand in to do our part.

The gifts that you have are beautiful and unique. As are the gifts of everyone else. Rather than envy another of their gift, search deeply within for your own light. When you have found it, blend your light with the lights of others around you and see you all shine more brightly. There is no one better and no one worse. We are all one.

The fifth dimension calls us to relinquish our strangle hold on the material. It insists that we see the beauty in every living being; the inherent light; the wholeness. It asks that we look closely at what we consider to be important, vital even, to our existence, and to release the ties that bind us to the world of material possessions. Trade it all in for love, simplicity, lightness of being. Take what you need for all is provided as it is needed; an excess will do you no good.

The message for today is “Trust in your own capabilities” this message came to me from the Hawthorn tree, from the Guardian of the Gateway of the Faery realm. It is a message of trust, of setting boundaries, equality, respect, value and self worth. Write the phrase down as an affirmation on a piece of paper and read it over and over today. “Trust in your own capabilities… I trust in my own capabilities.” To create the life of my dreams.

From the inside, out.

Namaste

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth, from the Healing With The Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spiritual Growth, from the Healing With The Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Spiritual Growth ~ Card Meaning: “You are going through a time of spiritual growth. Enjoy the process!”

“During this time, you may feel a mixture of many feelings: confusion, excitement, fear and wonder. You love your renewed connection with the Divine and you wish you could read, study, learn or meditate on a full-time basis! Simultaneously though, you may worry about  that implications that your spiritual studies will have on the rest of your life. What impact will your new spiritual pursuits have on your job, marriage, or friendships? These worries create a fear that may erode the enjoyment your spiritual studies bring you. Surrender these fears to God, dearest one! Trust that you are supported, loved, and guided each moment. Do not worry about how your future will blend with our spiritual growth! Trust that the same Power that brought you to your spiritual path will also take care of everything else for you. After all, this Power supports all of the planets in the sky. It will surely support you perfectly too!”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

 Transformation is for the courageous. These are challenging times we are facing right now, and we are being asked to use all of our resources to get through them and into the next level of consciousness. We are here to help raise the vibration of the planet, which will have lasting effects throughout the Universe. And we agreed to come in blind. With no memory and no instruction manual. We agreed to show up in this dense, beautiful and sometimes confusing and scary place and try our best to shine our light… if we could remember that we are capable of shining it. We are finally waking up.

Waking up can be scary! It can be exhausting and trying and it can make you feel like you just might be losing your mind in the process. But it is also wonderful and amazing and so very worthwhile. Mandatory really. So why isn’t everyone waking up? Well, that’s why you are reading this right now! You have agreed to help them. Don’t panic… you can help them by helping yourself. Phew!

When we wake up and decide to become mindful, loving, non judgmental, compassionate and healing to ourselves, we start to raise our vibration. When we raise our own vibration and start to live our truth, we allow others around us to do the same as they are inspired by us. That is why so many people are able to be who they really are now. Gender and race and sexuality choices and equality are discussed out in the open as they should be, eventually they will be non-existant as we accept everyone for who they choose to be. Bully is a swear word to my kids, the worst thing you can be accused of being. It’s just not OK to push people around, and those who have abused this are paying the price in the media now (Bikram, Bill Cosby, Jian Ghomeshi… of course innocent until proven guilty but it’s not looking too good). There is awareness around treatment of the environment and our animals. We have the ability now to make a difference and that is exactly what we plan to do.

Just by being you, and by embodying love, you are helping to heal the world. By loving and caring enough to change your daily routines to preserve the environment you are making a difference. By teaching your children Unconditional Love and compassion, you are making a difference. By living your truth and standing up for what you believe in, you are making a difference. Every moment of every day, look around you and know that you are making a difference. See opportunities to make even more of a difference. Inspire those around you and we will all be making a difference. That is what transformation is all about.

And keep sending love. Keep living in love. Keep being love.

Love really is all there is.

Namaste

Rebirth, from the Numerology Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Rebirth, from the Numerology Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan

Rebirth: “This card indicates a time of major transition and transformation that will result in significant personal growth. By drawing this card, you have entered a period of spiritual awakening and rebirth, where you have the opportunity to align with your higher self and the overarching principles that guide you. This is where you surrender to the changes around you and prepare to be the best you can be.

You are being encouraged to trust and believe that a magical future awaits, but first you need to let go of the old in order to experience the new. Take time to reevaluate your core values and reexamine your life, then eliminate any superficial foundations that do not align with your higher self and your dreams. This is a time to recognize and rise above any ego based thoughts and behaviors, for humility and authenticity are the keys to your success.

In order to improve your current situation, you are being asked to adjust to, and harmonize with, the natural rhythm and cycles of your life – cycles that are leading you toward a higher level of understanding and awareness. This transformation is inevitable, so know that this is a very exciting time, for you are about to become the best you can be.

Affirmation: Through personal transformation, I reach my greatest potential.”*

– Michelle Buchanan

This card is a validation that you are on the right path. There may have been some bumps along the way; you may even have felt that you were sliding downhill rather than climbing up; or you may have felt you were climbing Mt.Everest at times. Sometimes we feel that we are stuck, not moving at all, mired in fear and doubt, unable to get our footing. Yet the good news is, you are almost to the summit… well one of the many. Change and personal transformation are imminent. All you have strived for; all of your hard work in raising your vibration and consciousness; your acknowledgment of your inherent connection to all that is: The Earth, the Stars, the Universe, the angels… everything. It is all coming together in one great transformation; spiritual, personal, cosmic.

There is nothing to get ready for, nothing to prepare. Instead, there is a subtle shift in perspective; an opening up, a receptivity, a surrender, an understanding. There is nothing to prove, only love.

You are standing on the edge of the cliff of intention, peace, harmony, abundance and infinite possibility. It’s time to send gratitude to all the people, situations, perceived mistakes and experiences in your life to date; blessing and releasing them. Breathe deeply. Then jump fearlessly, full of faith and trust and belief in yourself and all the Universe has to offer you; your leap of faith into a new and better life. No more fear, no more lack, no more doubt, nothing to hold you back.

Rebirth.

Namaste

Spirituality, from the Numerology Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Numerology Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan: Spirituality

Spirituality: “This card indicates a need to enhance your connection to the Divine to improve your relationship with yourself, as well as your quality of life. You are not a human being having a spiritual experience; you are a spiritual being having a human experience, and your relationship with Source is your path to inner peace. When you find your way to God, you find your way back home.

By selecting this card, you are being encouraged to celebrate and strengthen your relationship with the Divine in whichever way you choose. You may opt for prayer, meditation, chanting, yoga or periods of silence and contemplation. Perhaps quiet time in nature, going on a retreat, or attending a place of worship is something you prefer. It does not matter which option you choose, for there is no right or wrong. Only you can know your ultimate path to God.

In order to improve your current situation, you are being asked to adjust to, and harmonize with, the natural rhythm and cycles of your life – cycles that are encouraging you to strengthen your relationship with the Divine. You are also being urged to communicate with your lost loved ones, spirit guides, and angels to ask for assistance when required. No request goes unanswered, and no request is too big or too small.

Affirmation:

My relationship with the Divine is my path to inner peace.”*

– Michelle Buchanan

I have to mention first, that the number 77 is a very auspicious number! According to Doreen Virtue, Ph.D’s book, Angel Numbers 101 the number 77 means: “Keep up the great work! Everything you are doing right now has the Midas touch!” Sevens are always a sign that you are on the right path, so if you see them often, your guides are telling you to keep going in the direction you have chosen, you are definitely on the right path!

This card is a message not only to work on strengthening your connection to the Divine, but also to celebrate the connection you have! If you are reading this message, it is a message to you, from the heart of your angels, telling you to keep on keeping on, you are loved and supported and they rejoice your successes. You are awakening to the unlimited Universal Love; your own innate Divine Wisdom and your connection to all that is. You are looking through much different eyes than only a week ago, a month ago, a year ago. You are progressing at a faster pace than you think!

Take some time every day to have a dialogue with your guides (preferably in your sacred place or outdoors where you can be relaxed and receptive, but anytime is great!). Make it a ritual to ask for guidance, signs, and assistance where needed. Send love and gratitude for all that you have in your life, taking inventory daily of all of your blessings.

You are on the right path, and that is an amazing place to be.

Namaste
