Vishnu: “Balance”

“Rectifying imbalance in your body, mind and soul reduces suffering and pain. The middle path is the best course of action.”

“The Hindus believe that both good and evil exists in the world. This is a natural way of being. When harmony is disturbed, Vishnu appears to maintain balance.

Vishnu, the preserver, is the middle part of the Hindu trinity, between Brahma, the creator, and Shiva, the destroyer. So far, Vishnu has been reincarnated nine times to assist in balancing the powers of light and darkness. These incarnations, or avatars, include those of Rama, Krishna, and Buddha. There is a tenth reincarnation to come, when a hero called Kalki will appear, riding a white horse, to again balance the decline of humanity.

Vishnu, as a supreme spirit, has many attributes, but he is known for his great shakti (energy) and bala (strength). He uses these to keep order in the universe and to subdue injustice and instill harmony. In one avatar Parashurama, he destroyed the warrior castes who were committing great injustices among the ordinary people and sages.

Vishnu is almost always depicted with blue skin and sometimes he rides on his magnificent, bird like mount, Garuda. His partner is the goddess of prosperity, Lakshmi, who sits lovingly with him, often massaging his feet.

Should Vishnu grace you with his presence, know that he is reminding you to find balance in all things. Admittedly, this is hard; we live in a time where seeking balance seems to be at the top of everyone’s list, but first we must be aware of our imbalance! This is where Vishnu asks us to start – with awareness.

Where can you actively seek more harmony and peace? What small or large steps can you take to correct the imbalance for the good of all  – including yourself?”

Shadow Side: “Trying to balance social life and study, duty and freedom, indulgence and simplicity is almost like walking a tightrope. Vishnu invites us to be aware of our imbalances and to seek to correct them. Often the imbalances we aren’t fully aware of – until they give us pain, that is – are the ones we truly need to change. For example, imbalance can manifest as loss of focus, illness, weight issues, bad habits, patterns of low self-esteem, lack of prosperity, and addictions.”

Symbols of Vishnu: “conch, wheel, lotus, bow and arrow”

Invocation: “As with all Hindu gods, there’s a living, breathing tradition to draw upon, so there are many wonderful invocations and chants to be found. I like the following small chant that I learned while in India.

Sit cross-legged or kneel on the ground. Place your left hand, palm upturned, on your knee, and your right hand turned down upon your other knee. Imagine taking in energy from your left hand and grounding it with your right, perfectly in balance.
Say:
‘Lord Vishnu, I feel your balance,
To my left,
To my right,
Above me,
Below me,
Everywhere you are,
I am.’

Repeat this over and over while imagining the shakti (energy) flowing in and out, up and down, through you and around you, in perfect balance.

When you feel balanced, centered, and completed, stand and bow to the north, south, east and west.
Say:

‘I thank you, Lord Vishnu,
for balance in my world and the next.”*

The news of the world could quite literally drag us under. It creates a vortex of negative energy, like a black hole. It can be challenging to maintain personal balance amidst the chaos, yet this is exactly what we must strive to do. It is, quite literally, vital to our very existence.

Bombs are being dropped. Weather patterns are changing, becoming more ferocious… this is only the beginning of this phenomena. There are crazy things happening all over the place. It is quiet overwhelming. Add in our own personal drama, worries, obligations and responsibilities, and we have some very heavy energies to deal with.

So what to do about it all? How do we save the world? What can we do about all this?

All we can really do is find ways to incorporate peace into our own lives, moment by moment. Find ways to incorporate joy, passion, love and harmony into each and every day. Find ways to raise your own vibration and thus raise the vibrations of those around you.

Be the love, joy, peace, harmony and passion you wish to see in the world. Avoid the black hole as much as possible. Do not get sucked in to the fear. Meet it with Light. Fill your heart with love despite the chaos.

As much as you can; no pressure, no doubt, no self-judgement.

Just love. Infused into as many moments of every single day as you can.

Namaste

Odin: “Guidance”

“Seek guidance to solve and issue. Choose carefully whom you take counsel from. Respect experience; it takes time to develop wisdom and knowledge. Be patient.”

“Odin is perhaps the most honoured of all ancient Norse gods and is referred to as the All Father because of his position as a protector and leader of both gods and humans. He is considered the wisest of all the Gods. The thunder god, Thor, is perhaps the most well-known of Odin’s children.

Odin has an interesting duality, as he is both a god of war and death, and a god of poetry, storytelling and intelligence. Warriors honoured him before battle because they hoped to enter his halls in Asgard if they died. Fathers and teachers, too, honoured him in the hopes that they would be wise and protective for the children in their care. Those who wished to glimpse their futures or gather wisdom though an oracle could us runes – the oracular tool Odin created – which were a series of symbols often carved on bone, wood, or stone. (You can still buy sets of runes today.)

The mighty Odin appears in many wonderful stories, most with a theme of gaining wisdom and accepting wise guidance. Odin is often depicted with only one eye, as he exchanged the other for a sip at the Well of Wisdom when he was traveling to the World Tree, a place of connective power. This enabled him to see far, to know much, and to listen to all of the stories of the world.

Odin teaches us that education and listening to various wise voices is invaluable to won growth and development. The more we know about a situation, the better we can assess it; research is rarely wasted. He also suggests that you can find wise teachers among those with direct experience regarding your situation, or those who have many ears of experience at your task. If you need guidance in any situation, Odin is a solid choice to turn to, and he can guide you toward the answers that you need.

Shadow Side: “While listening to other people’s wisdom it is necessary to gain perspective and to choose what action to take, if we only take the advice of others and don’t listen to our own guidance, we may be giving our power away. Also, it is possible to read too much or continue to gather information when the time is right to act. Imagine if you consulted a couple of books and videos on how to ride a bike but never took action to actually get on a bike to learn how to ride it!”

Symbols: “Runes; the eight legged horse; Sleipnir; Spear tht never misses; Gungnir; The Sun; One eyed man with many names; Odin, Wodin”*

Take time to pause and ask for some help from your “Team”. You know who your team is, right? Your angels and guides and any other light beings or elementals who have agreed to assist you in this lifetime… behind the scenes. They wish to assist you now, and all you have to do is ask, and be receptive.

You may need to take a little break from moving forward in order to allow a new solution or opportunity to come to you. We often think we know what is best for us, and all concerned, when we actually haven’t thought of, or are unable to conceptualize what needs to happen in order for things to happen or problems to be solved. This time, there is something that we may not be seeing, but that our Team is more than willing to help us with. Gratefully accept the help that is on offer.

Sit back and relax. Find a way to be open to finding a solution that comes in the form of a miracle or gift. Keep sending gratitude, which will help to open your heart and mind to what is coming your way, and look for signs, messages and guidance coming to you over the next few days.

Let your Team impress you with their amazing skills!

Namaste

Cernunnos

Published January 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Cernunnos, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco and Jimmy Manton

Cernunnos, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco and Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Cernunnos, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco and Jimmy Manton

Cernunnos: “Shape Shifting”

“Transition and change are flowing through you. Relax and know that you have the power to be what you want to be!”

“While most people think of Cernunnos as a god of the Celts, the truth is, this energy is far, far older. Prehistoric man covered himself with the skins, hair, feathers, and bones of the animals he hunted, and he danced around his fire. As the shadows played against the cave walls, man changed into the very animals he targeted.

Shape shifting is a way of gathering power and information. This is one of the earliest principles of magic: like attracts like. If  you want to catch a stag, be a stag in the ritual dance. Feel the stag, think like the stag, be one with the stag, and then you can better connect with the stag should you need to hunt it. By honoring this father hunter, the horned one, ancient peoples felt they would be better fed and better prepared – and so, more successful.

Cernunnos is often depicted as half human and half stag, although sometimes he is simply depicted as a man with  glorious set of antlers that seem to pierce the sky. His energy is vital, flowing, fertile, and connecting.

Today he is a symbol of the purest masculine energy, untainted and fully connected with his strength and wildness. For this reason, he is extremely popular with the modern pagan and witchcraft communities and is a patron of those who work on facilitating change as environmental activists. You can call upon his shape shifting energy when you wish to transition from one identity to another or to shift back into your most authentic self. If you feel like you have changed recently in ways that do not feel right to you or in ways that feel untrue to your nature, it is time to shift back with Cernunnos.

Shadow Side: “The wilderness demands respect. Many survival shows demonstrate how to conquer nature rather than work with and enrich the environment for the greatest good. If you only use the gifts of the earth, sky and sea for sport, without ever giving back to those same elements, you may need to rethink your attitude.

A balanced masculine nature is one of deep protective connection with the earth and its animals, rather than dominion over them. Today’s hunters could do well to follow a more honorable path than the cold process of taking life. Think also how Cernunnos would view the common practices of factory farming, for example, and reassess what you eat.

Symbols: “Antlers, stag, snake, trees”

Invocation: “Go outside, preferably somewhere green, even overgrown. Take off your shoes. Lie down or stand upon the earth. Now imagine growing roots from your bodyinto the earth and picture Cernunnos, powerful and pure, standing with you.

Say:
In the center of all things is you, Cernunnos,
Great god of the earth, of the sky, of the air,
Of the forest, of things green and wet and wild!
Connect me to who I am.
Teach me how to delve down, like the roots of a tree into
the soft earth,
And find the center myself.
Connect me to what I am to be,
Mentor me to shift my shape
Easily, quickly, certainly.
Balance me,
Give me depth, give me lightness.
Guide me to my true home;
Grow me into my best self.
May I honor you in word and deed.
May it begin from here!”*

The Divine Feminine is rising, and the Divine Masculine is coming forward to meet Her. Balance. Equality. Justice. Deep, divine connection. We are both powerful in our own rights. We both have something profoundly sacred to offer. What has been tainted will be purified. What has been unbalanced for far too long will come back into alignment. It will take work on both sides, leveling the scales so that we can again see eye to eye. In these times we must work together. We must use our power wisely.

Together we are so much more powerful. Twin flames are reuniting to create much needed change through deep healing of old wounds, those on a personal and also on the collective level. When we see ourselves as Divine, and see the magic in the other half, the healing begins. Work from the inside out, and open your hearts wide. Shift from the old into the new and meet your partner as a reflection of your own true divine self.

Heal and be healed.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Thor, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Thor: “Action”

“The time has now passed for waiting and inertia. Real action is necessary. Trust that you are protected and supported while you move forward.”

“Most people have heard of or are familiar with the Norse god Thor and his mighty hammer. Highlighted against a stormy sky, thunder crashing from his hammer, wearing a horned Viking helmet over his flowing locks, Thor is the epitome of masculine vigor and force.

The god Thor was born of the earth goddess Jord and the supreme father god Odin, and is considered the strongest of all the Norse immortals, the Aesir. His mythology contains many stories of his exploits and his bravery, including battles with great serpents. A protector of humans, loved for his creative powers, he is nevertheless known for his hot blooded temper.

Thor captains a chariot pulled by two savage, giant goats that galloped noisily across the sky, causing the sound of thunder. Thor’s hammer, Mjollnir, famous for its lethal power, became the symbol of defiance worn by those loyal to the old ways when Christianity began its spread across Scandinavia.

We can call upon Thor when we need some real action. He is a brilliant rut buster, someone who will forcefully make action happen! If we feel inertia, tiredness, or frustration that things are not happening how we want, call upon Thor and his mighty hammer to smash a way through. Getting caught in a cycle of negative thought or behavior often needs forceful action, as we get comfortable with our lives, even when they are unhealthy. Thor is protective of his own, so we can feel safe knowing that his might will shield us as we move forward into the unknown.

Thor is also a poet, not just an action man, so you can take a more sensitive rout, even if you are the masculine type. Follow Thor’s lead and be the best of both worlds!”

Shadow Side: “Sometimes, taking forceful action is not the most prudent path. Thor himself found this route did not always guarantee the best outcome. Coming into a sensitive situation ready for a fight – or even just a negative reaction – may end badly for all. Ask questions and be aware o when a situation needs a gentler approach and when force is actually a good instrument.

The male energy tends to be one of action, but too much action can also deplete one’s energy and vitality. Action must be balanced with rest and rejuvenation.”*

Notice that this card is about strength, power and action, but it also contains a note of balance and mindfulness. Yes, we have access to the Divine Masculine principle of creative action; breaking through obstacles, out of ruts and stagnancy. It is also a breaking out of thought forms; those limiting belief systems that have been holding us back.

It is not, however, brash aggression or blundering forward mindlessly. It is not storming over others to get what we want. These are old ways. The energy we are calling upon now is balanced – the warrior and the poet. This gives us access to the forces of creative action, powerful forward momentum and manifestation. It requires laser focus, steadfast intention and a good dose of imagination. Take a moment to feel into this energy, poetry in motion.

And after all, who couldn’t use a little Thor in their lives!

Namaste

Amaterasu: “Self-Esteem”

“You are enough. Build your self-esteem from the inside out. It is your turn to shine. Be the sunshine in your own life!”
Amaterasu is the sun goddess of the Shinto Faith. She is one of the most loved of the Japanese deities and there are many myths surrounding her.

Amaterasu lives a peaceful life in harmony wit the workings of nature, shining brightly among her herd of horses and gardens full of silk worms for her weaving. However, her brother Susano’o is much more disruptive and chaotic.

In some versions of the story, Susano’o became jealous of his sister and slaughtered her horses and her silk worms. When Amaterasu came upon such a gruesome and shocking scene, she felt so overcome with grief and hopelessness that she retreated into a cave. This left the earth with no life-giving sun, and all grew cold and dead. The earthly plane became a haven for evil spirits, and people began to die from lack of food.

The other gods and the humans waited outside Amaterasu’s cave and tried everything to get her to come out again. She refused, never wishing to show her face again. As things grew desperate, Uzume, Amaterasu’s sister, had an idea. She began to dance and sing loudly and comically. The brought a roar of approval from the assembled crowd, and their laughter rang across the world.

Amaterasu became curious, listening to these lively, happy sounds, and decided to peek out of her cave. Uzume was prepared and had placed a mirror just outside the cave. When the bright light of dawn that was Amaterasu’s energy hit the mirror, the goddess was bedazzled by her own reflection, and Uzume was able to pull her out of the cave. The world again became a better place by her presence, and Amaterasu understood her true worth.

Call upon Amaterasu when you are feeling low in self-esteem and when you feel like you are not enough. Amaterasu’s very name means ‘to shine in heaven,” and this is what this goddess encourages us to do – let our own light shine. First, we have to understand ourselves a little better and know how truly important we are – to those around us and to the world at large. Without building true self-esteem from the inside out, creating a true love of ourselves, we are limited in what we do.

The effects of low self-esteem can permeate our lives easily! When we don’t love ourselves or when we only rely on others for our live, it is difficult to stay balanced, keep our boundaries, have a healthy body image, be successful, and simply enjoy our lives to the fullest. We see the effects particularly when we shy away from taking positive risks and growing. Having positive self-esteem means we shine, and that it evident for all to see.”

Shadow Side: “If our strong, healthy self-esteem tips over into arrogance or narcissism, it is not true balance. In this world full of celebrities who are noting but pretty faces, who are famous just for being famous, it is not surprising that many people believe that self-esteem and self-worth come form the outside in, from the admiration of others. Take the admiring people away, and if there is no solid core of self-worth, there is little left.”

Symbols: “Mirror, sun, silk, silkworms, cave”

~ By Stacey Demarco

There is a saying “whatever you believe yourself capable of, you are correct” basically, whether you believe you can attain your goals, or whether you believe that you will never attain them, you are correct. What you expect is exactly what you will receive. If you believe nothing good will come of a situation, you are probably right. If you believe that you are too old to learn something new, or too stuck to change, you are right about that too.

The image of the cave is a metaphor for our belief systems and our self-imposed limitations. Imagine the cave walls to be what you have set as your perception of what you are capable of, or worthy of receiving. The cave is stone, the walls are thick, the ceiling is so low you can barely stand up to your full height. The cave is stifling, it’s hard to move, to breathe. Yet there you are, feeling quite safe if not a little restless in your cave. The exit is right there, but it is scary to contemplate what lies beyond the perceived safety of your protective cave.

But what is the cave is actually more of a prison than a protection? What if instead of keeping you safe, it is actually holding you back from your true potential? What if it is keeping the love of your life at bay? The career of your dreams beyond the walls? Everything you dream of and more, beyond those rock solid walls of belief systems?

It’s time to step out of the cave into the bright sun. Into the expansiveness beyond the cave.

Into your destiny.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Jade Emperor, from the Gods and Titans Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Jade Emperor: “Organization”

“Streamlining, reordering and decluttering will clear the way to a flow of natural, effortless action”

“The Jade Emperor – or the Heavenly Grandfather, as he is also known – is one of the most beloved and most courted of the Chinese Taoist gods because of his benevolent protection and supreme organizing ability.

As a young deity, the Jade Emperor wandered the earth, humbly helping humans make sense of the world. He taught them how to manage their settlements and their sorrows. To protect the humans, he also defeated the negative energies referred to as demons. Although he possesses a loving energy more than that of a fighter, there are many accounts of the Jade Emperor retreating back to himself to gather his energy and strength in order to have the knowledge and power needed to conquer significant evil energies. It is because of these deeds that he eventually became the administrator of the immortals, the Heavenly Ruler.

Under his leadership are assistants who ensure his Wu way (natural effortless action) is adhered to. These assistants are ordered according to departments, with different gods as the head of each department, but all take authority from the Jade Emperor.

Should the  Jade Emperor enter your realm, it may be time to reorganize, rearrange, and reorder some part of your life. Planning is a key part of getting your desires met. Do not view it as a chore but as something exciting – it leads you to where you most wish to be. Do you need to plan your schedule more effectively? Do you have too many assignments to write, or are your extracurricular activities keeping you so busy you feel hectic? If you have a job, is it difficult to find the time to do everything? Can you not decide what path you want to take because too many seem to be clamoring for attention Writing things out, planning your time, and organizing your thoughts and actions will help, and the Jade Emperor can assist you with this.

Having a clear and workable environment enables you to achieve much more in less time as well. Creating some simple systems can increase your flow of positive energies, such as prosperity and creativity. Take this opportunity to streamline your life.”

Shadow Side: “You can be too structured, which can limit your creativity and your ability to be spontaneous. The shadow side here is having too much order in your life, too much rigidity that you set for yourself and ensure you are being healthily lenient with yourself when you can. Balance is key. Stretch out, reach out, and open for the Wu way.”

Symbols: “Golden palace, robe with dragons embroidered upon it”

Invocation: “This is a wonderful invocation to invite the Jade Emperor to help better organize and simplify your situation.

Light a stick of incense and hold it in your hand in a prayer position:

Say: “I humbly call upon you, Jade Emperor”

Then allow the incense smoke to permeate through your home or office and petition this supreme organizing energy to help simplify, clarify, protect and declutter your space.
Sprinkle some sea salt around the area and then chant three times:
‘Noble Emperor,
Every place has a place.
Noble Emperor,
Every item has a home.
Noble Emperor,
Heavenly Grandfather,
Make sense of chaos.
Transform and order.
Allow me to discard cleanly
And treasure carefully.’

Now begin to sort what you need to sort. Freely discard what you no longer need or what is broken. File or place in storage what you decide to keep. Then repeat the chant and vacuum up the salt.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

We have one month of 2016 left and we are on to creating something new. It’s time to streamline, de-clutter and make space for something new. What (or who!?!) do you STILL need to release? And why are you STILL holding on?

There is an aspect of surrender to this message as well… maybe you have been fighting to keep something going that is just not working out. Maybe you have been clinging on to someone who is not healthy for you. Maybe you have clung on to old belief systems around what your life should look like or what you are capable of. Whatever it is, this is last call. Let all that go and get ready for something amazing and brand new.

The new is coming whether you are ready for it or not. Decide right now to make space for it, in your heart, in your mind and in your life.

Namaste

Morgan Le Fae ~ Magic

Morgan Le Fae ~ Magic, from the Goddess and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Morgan Le Fae ~ Magic, from the Goddess and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Morgan Le Fae ~ Magic: “You have power, and it is real. A secret will be revealed. You have an unexpected ally. Seek the truth. Try some magic!”

“In the powerful legend of Avalon, the Lady Morgan Le Fae is a key and yet changeable figure. A mighty sorceress, with skills in magic to match Merlin’s legends cast her both as a truth seeking, harshly treated enchantress and as an evil witch, plotting her half brother, Arthur’s downfall.

In the early tales, Morgan Le Fae was either purely a member of the fae (supernatural faery spirits) or the talented sorceress daughter of Arthur’s mother, Lady Igraine, and her first husband, Gerlois, the Duke of Cornwall. According to early Celtic myth, Morgan Le Fae is a mistress of magic, a knowledgeable spell crafter, and a healer of note. The celts also believed, because of Morgan’s fae origins, that she is a shape-shifter.

As the myths developed further, Morgan Le Fae became a mild antagonist to Arthur, attempting to expose Guinevere’s adulterous ways or test those who were not loyal to him. As the myths evolved and became more Christianized, Morgan developed into a dark enemy who actively plotted Arthur’s death. Her role changed so that she became a temptress who tricked him into making love with her, after which she bore him a son, Mordred. It was said that she trained Mordred to hate Arthur and wish to overthrow him as rightful king.

Even though the stories portrayed her as a deadly enemy of Arthur, she was also one of the women who took Arthur in a barge to Avalon to be healed after his battle with Mordred. Here the story ends – Morgan Le Fae attempts to heal Arthur, indicating that it will take a long time.

Morgan Le Fae enchants her way into your life to remind you that magic is indeed real and the power of intention is great. There is magic in everything – nature, action, and especially ourselves. Those studying chemistry or physics can appeal to her for success. Morgan might also be tempting you to try some magic, for your highest good and for the highest good of all. Morgan was caught up in many intrigues and lies, and when the veils finally lifted, she didn’t always prosper. It is this aspect of her that reminds us that truth in all thins is often the best way forward, even though it may be hard.

Shadow Side: “There is always a duality to magic. A skilled practitioner can generate positive change or negative impact. It is important to be pure in our intentions; when we act for what seems to be positive reasons but is really an attempt to manipulate others, the Universe will know. Morgan Le Fae was either caught in her own Machiavellian weavings, affected by her own hatred, or just eager to expose the truth – whether or not she is a s dark as some stories paint her, her intentions are not clear. It is important to be honest with yourself and true in you r actions when Morgan is present.”

Symbols: “Crescent moon, Women with dark, flowing hair; ravens, potion bottles”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

I don’t believe that Morgan Le Fae was an evil witch or sorceress, I believe that the story was changed by those who feared her immense powers of magic. She became the Lady Of The Lake, a high priestess who was revered in a land that receded into the shadow realms of another dimension when it was not safe to be here anymore. She deserves our respect and reverence as a powerful healer and keeper of the sacred rituals of the Fae and forest magics.

Are you in touch with your own magic? If you need help, you can invoke the power of Morgan Le Fae to assist you in coming back to yourself and your inner wisdom. We all have magic within us, but often it is well hidden behind social conditioning and fear. We are all able to tap into our powers of intuition and instinct. We are all able to become vessels of Light and heal ourselves and those around us. And it is up to us to connect with Gaia and the magic of the forest, plants, animals, flowers, birds and elementals to bring this magic alive in our everyday lives. We can connect to the cycles of the moon, the seasons, and our own seasons. We can work in sacred ceremony to strengthen our connection. We can use the tools of divination in combination with our intuition to read energies. We can use the forces of nature and the elements to heal.

This is a call to magic. Your magic. Find it deep within and use it to expand your consciousness, your awareness and your connection to the Universe.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
