Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Hawk ~ Focus: “Choose Your Priorities; and eliminate all distractions.”

“Look at all the choices before you, and select one to which you are willing to give your passionate attention. Once you decide, the right action to take becomes immediately apparent, and Life supports you and provides what you need. You can then arrange all your priorities around that which you have chosen. Set personal boundaries and practice self-care when and where needed. If you do not do this, you can easily get overwhelmed and fragmented, and your power will become scattered and diffused.

Let go of all those habitual diversions that you have made so important. It is time to go to work on the priority you chose and let it flow. The practice of staying focused is in itself a mediation, and this is how you can best express the gifts of service you have to offer to the world and to your Creator.

Additional Associations:

Messenger; Perspective; Detachment; Swiftness.”*

Do you know what you want? Can you list it in full dynamic detail? Or do you feel more comfortable listing the things that you don’t want? When thinking about what you want, are you able to separate out just you and your dreams and desires? Or do you get wrapped up in what other people want for you, or how your wants would affect them?

What about judgement? Are you concerned with what people might think of your choices, is that a factor in painting the perfect picture of your reality? Can you free yourself from the drama, the worry and the expectations, soar above it all and gain a different perspective?

What if you took all the distractions away and focused solely on what you would love to create for your own life. Letting go of worries, judgement and fear. Letting go of how it would affect those who have expectations of you. Letting your imagination run wild…. What would that look like? How would it feel?

Now, can you hone it down into several focused goals? Can you select a few action steps to get you going in the right direction, even if they are tiny to start? Can you alter your perception of your current reality to allow space for the new one to integrate?

Can you commit to have the courage to breathe it into existence?

Decide right now, to take one step each day towards your dreams, no matter what. Be courageous; be direct and most importantly, be authentic to you. Own this new reality, as you let these dreams fly free from your Heart and Soul. They are your lifeline, your bridge to fulfilling your Soul’s purpose.

Happiness is found in the here and now. When you are focusing on your dreams, you are manifesting what you want to create. Do it with a smile. Do it with joy and enthusiasm and a light heart. For in doing so, you root yourself in this joy and create a magnet for more. You also acknowledge that joy can be found in the now, and is not something that must be chased after… residing in the future.

What are you focused on creating?

Namaste

Green Man

Green Man ~ Synergy, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Green Man ~ Synergy, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Green Man ~ Synergy: “Green Man is Earth’s vegetation personified. Although he has many variations, this card depicts a more subtle and embedded representation. In other portrayals, he resembles the face of a man covered in green foliage as branches and vines sprout from every direction.

There exists some form of Green Man throughout history and in a myriad of cultures throughout the world. Often a symbol for the rebirth of life in spring time, he has also been associated with the Lord of the Wildwood.

As a representative of the plant kingdom, Green Man reminds us of the incredible synergy required for Gaia to maintain her delicate and dynamic balance among the various beings on the planet. Synergy is the interaction and cooperation of two or more elements that produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate efforts. We witness this in the complex and cooperative interaction between plants, humans, and animals. For instance, fruit trees propagate by being eaten by an animal that then deposits it back into the Earth after digestion. As a new plant grows, bees pollinate the flowers, and the cycle begins once again in Nature’s simple yet remarkable synergy.

You have the advantage of an incredible synergy at this time. A flow of Life is guiding you, where things just seem to fall into place as you move about your business. You are in a mutually cooperative interaction with Spirit, as your will is aligned with the will of Spirit, and your mission is congruent with your sense of purpose. When this is happening, there is a synergy, a way that your life force is continually coming into balance with the forces of Nature.

There is also synergy between your spiritual awareness and your personal self, or ego. Be aware of the various idiosyncrasies of your ego, and do not take any of them too seriously. Know that your Higher Self is always looking out for your best interests. In this cycle, tune in to that guidance, however it shows up, and you will find that you move through Life with greater ease due to a synergistic balance of forces expressing themselves as you.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

This message is about seeing the bigger picture…  the connection to All That Is, and your integral part in it. When you acknowledge this connection, it helps to align you, body, mind and spirit with the forces of the Universe, the planet herself and all of her creations. When these forces all come into synergistic balance, it is like a perfectly oiled machine; each contributing to the other in harmony. This alignment is very healing for you, and in turn, healing to the Earth. It helps you to see that the world is so much more abundant than our fears will allow us to realize; that there are endless opportunities and possibilities open to us in every moment. If we just open to see them and receive them.

You are being reminded to see the bigger picture in your own life. Release the drama, worry, fears and doubts which play out in your head regarding your personal lack or limitation. Focus instead on the beauty and magic within you reflected in nature all around you. You are as stunning and intricate as the most delicate snowflake; as gorgeous as a brightly coloured butterfly; as strongly grounded as the mighty oak; as serene as the pastel sunset; as wise as the full moon; as passionate as the blazing sun; as abundant as the double rainbow and as pure as the deep blue ocean … you are made up of the same stardust as all of these things. Witness this deep Soul beauty in yourself with awe and wonder  and see the connection to All That Is in your own eyes. When you can do this, you can connect with the most powerful force in the Universe and use it to heal everything and everyone.

Love.

Namaste

Mountain ~ Strength

Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

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

Mountain ~ Strength: “The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the  blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.

The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.

It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.

The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.”*

Sometimes we can’t make up our minds. Sometimes we make up our minds and other people change them for us; then we end up looking back and wishing that we had stuck to our guns and not changed our minds. Sometimes we don’t know what we want and we feel directionless, drifting.

What do you want to create? It sounds like such a simple question, but yet, it is one of the hardest question for many people to answer. What do you want to create? Can you describe it in detail? Can you feel it? See it? Smell, taste and touch it with you mind? Are you focusing on it daily? Hourly? Moment by moment? When you do focus on it, is it in anticipation as you feel it into being? Or is it doubtfully, knowing somewhere in your being that it’s probably never going to happen… a pipe dream?

It makes a huge difference. How you feel about it. HUGE difference.

Like happening or not happening difference. So it’s good to get that sorted out once and for all.

What do you want?

Are you willing to stand your ground for it? Be solid in your belief that you are worth it? Embrace it wholeheartedly as your birthright? Nothing and no one can stand in your way?

When you are solid in your focus, yet reaching for the stars. When you are planted firmly in the now, fully grounded on the Earth, yet your spirit soars up to the Universe. When you are stable and steady and strong.

Then, as you soar to new heights, your dreams will surround you. Worthy you. Confident you. Beautiful, unlimited, Divine: YOU.

Shark

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

Shark: “Trust your instincts to discern the truth of the situation”

“Your instinctual self is that aspect of you that sends signals to your brain directly from your body. It is what is responsible for your survival – particularly when you are in a life threatening situation and must avoid danger by fighting, fleeing, or remaining still and quiet. Your instinct dictates which choice most likely ensures your perpetuation. It is much more primal than intellect, and it is what connects humans with other animals.

The trust for your instinctual signals can be modified and distorted by conditioning, especially childhood conditioning. When you are repeatedly told to distrust what your body is telling you or you have faced life threatening situations, with no escape, this exquisite survival mechanism becomes clouded at the least and completely suppressed at the extreme. It is replaced by either a generalized fear and agitation that gets projected onto relatively benign situations, or else a psychic numbness that anesthetizes the senses and severely limits your body’s ability to process environmental cues for danger. This sensory numbness also limits your ability to fully experience pleasure.

Take time to tune in to your gut feelings, using slow, deep breathing as an access code. Listen with all your senses to discern what your body is telling you, and use your intellect to interpret whether it is a conditioned reaction or an instinctual response. With practice, you will refine your perceptual capabilities so that you can completely trust what you feel.

Associations For This Card: Confidence; Secrets; Protection; Respect; Survival; Authority; Focus; Action; Unpredictability; Solitude; Endurance; Assertiveness; Divinity.”*

~ Stephen D Farmer

Every limitation that we encounter can be traced back to our perception of ourselves. We set our own limitations. Period. In setting them, we have taken into account all the information we have gathered not just over this lifetime, but over our many lifetimes. Some of this information may be perceived as negative. Some of it may just have come from little snippets of things that people have said to us long ago; things that they may or may not even remember saying; things that we have held on to for our whole lives. Stories that we have created to describe ourselves and what is possible. Everyone has a story.

These things need not affect us any more, we must let them all go and start fresh.

If we do not let the past hurts go, we use them as shields to protect us from our present experience. We assume when offered a new opportunity that things may turn out the same as they did in the past. We give away our power as we don’t trust ourselves to make healthy decisions. We fight anxiety and experience fear when we go against the fear and doubt experienced by our bodies. We look through a tainted lens, projecting what we think could happen and not allowing the situation to fully unfold.

This is not about ignoring intuition, it is about trusting it in the moment. It is about tuning in instead of over thinking and over analyzing. It is about having faith in something new.

We must believe in ourselves; strengthen the connection to our intuition. We must take back our power and trust in our instincts. They will never let us down if we truly listen. They will always guide us on our highest path.

All we need to do is listen.

River ~ Movement

River ~ Movement

River ~ Movement, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

 

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

River ~ Movement: “The softened light from the sun falls upon this meandering river, the sparkles reflecting the gentle movement taking place in the river’s body.

She moves easily around the curves and rocks, sometimes gently, as portrayed in this card, and sometimes quite rapidly and intensely. Still, the river’s movement will always eventually land her in the bosom of great Grandmother Ocean.

Some of her water will evaporate along the way to feed the waters of the sky – just as it takes place in any other bodies of water – and bless the land and the seas with replenishment in a perfectly natural cycle that helps the planet sustain itself. Water if our lifeblood, a nutrient more essential than food. The flow of water throughout our own bodies serves as a metaphor for how Life itself flows through us and expresses as us.

“Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of the river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along.

Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that offer you clues about what direction your egoless Self is to be making. “Go with the flow” is more than a trite aphorism here. IT is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Things may have been a little bumpy lately, but take heart, you are almost there! Surrender to the transformation you are going through, even if it seems scary right now. Fear is a block, and will only slow down the inevitable. You can do this, just breathe.

We are tackling a challenging cycle in our lives right now; an ending and a beginning. Yet here we are, feeling right in the middle…  in limbo… and asking ourselves if this is really what we signed up for! Where’s the security? Where is the safety? Bring back the complacency??? NO! All is in perfect Divine Order and by trusting in the process, the process will become easier. Loosen up on the reigns and allow. Surrender to the Divine. Trust in the Universe.

Breathe

It may have seemed lately like things have been moving slower or even faster than we would like; or possibly they appeared to be moving in the complete opposite direction we expected. Or, maybe we are actually getting what we wished for and are now on the ride of our lives. (If that’s not happening for you, it is about to, buckle up!) Whichever way it is playing out for you at this time, know that it is exactly right for you… even if you are not quite feeling it!

Decide right now to stop swimming upstream and relax. Breathe, center and ground your energy and detach from the drama. Free your ego by trusting in your Soul.

You are on the right path.

Go with the flow….

Namaste

Eagle ~ Spirit, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eagle ~ Spirit, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Eagle ~ Spirit: “Trust in your higher self.”

“When you live your life according to Spiritual Law, Spirit’s intent expresses through your personality easily and fluidly. Your light will shine if you only let it, and all that you want will come to you without ever needing to know how. To follow your spiritual path, your only job is to listen to and then heed Spirit’s directives, and your life will flow quite easily.

Your conscious mind is meant to be the receiver and transmitter of these urgings, translating the information sent from Spirit through pure awareness into the physical realm and decipherable communication. Since your ego’s willfulness can interfere and misdirect, you must pay close attention to discern which is which. Know that your higher self will only give you straightforward, positive, and encouraging support, whereas the ego’s voice will tend to be negative and discouraging. Let this ageless wisdom that is your spiritual birthright come through so that you may shine with light and love upon yourself, others and the world around you!

Additional associations of this card: Vision; Courage; Universality; Masculinity.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Your Soul is calling you, can you hear it? Are you listening? Movies and TV have made it seem that in order to communicate with Spirit, you must have the clouds part, lightening bolts strike or God come down from the Heaven’s and stand before you. This would be awesome, but I have noticed that Spirit is so much more subtle than that in my own life. I find myself thinking these recurring thoughts all of a sudden as if out of nowhere. They make sense, yet are completely out of context, having nothing to do with what I happen to be thinking or doing at the time. I will often notice them several times a day, and often over several days… although I am getting better at it now! This is where my messages from Spirit come from… thoughts in my own head, in my own voice, but ones that just don’t quite fit with the others. Often they are creative ideas that require me to go and make or do something. They may urge me to look something up or contact a certain person. They may be a confirmation on something I was previously wondering about… an answer that I seem to doubt or second guess until I see the “proof”… even though they always come true!

It’s ego that gets in the way… that and distraction of course! It’s a little more challenging to hear these thoughts with phones, tablets, computers, TV’s and wifi all around us. It’s definitely more challenging when we are always plugged in, and always subject to an onslaught of biased media telling us what and how we should think. It is also challenging if we don’t have any time to ourselves, are over stressed, over burdened with responsibility and have a tendency to get caught up in drama and worry.

Eagle is asking us to soar, physically and mentally. Shed the ego and get outside and just be. Breathe. Use all of your senses to fly up above the drama for a new perspective.

Would you like to hear what your guides have to say? Take a few minutes each day in silent contemplation. Ask for clear guidance and see what comes. It may not be a lightening bolt, it may not be an Archangel standing in front of you in plain view. But it may just be exactly what you need to hear to guide you on. And it may sound just like your own thoughts. With practice you will get better at hearing and you will get better at recognizing and deciphering the messages.

Know that if they lift you up, they are exactly what you need.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Confidence ~ Cougar, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Confidence ~ Cougar: “Be bold and take charge.”

“You are being called to take a role of leadership, and it is natural for certain fears and considerations to surface, such as: “Will I be seen as arrogant, bullying or full of myself? Will others listen to me? Will I be challenged” Well, the truth is, these are all possible. You need to just get over it, rise above all these mind made fears, and heed the call. Whether you realize it or not, you are a natural leader, and there is no need to diminish the hard earned skills you learned through life lessons just so you ca play it safe. What you have to offer is needed right now, whether it is with your partner, your family, your community, or the larger world around you.

You will be judged. Count on it. And you need to hear these judgments, yet not allow them to rule you. Do not mistake ego-driven stubbornness and willfulness for determination. Listen to the voice of your inner nature and the wisdom gathered from experience to guide your choices. Acknowledge that everyone else has to make their own choices – including their response to you. Remember that effective leaders are good listeners. They know when to follow and when to lead, and when to move forward and when to hold still.

Additional Associations For This Card: Stealth; Leadership; Focus; Conviction.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

It’s time to step in to your power. There is no room for fear as you take charge of your life, only the absolute conviction that you can create your own reality with grace and ease. For the highest good of all involved. You are undergoing a powerful transformation and it requires you to believe in yourself fully and completely in order to move to the next level. No matter what.

Whatever has been beckoning to you is now screaming. That opportunity that was knocking can no longer be ignored. The fear and doubt that may have held you back in the past is gone, and you can move forward to take your place with confidence. You are heading in the right direction. Everything is falling into place exactly as it should be. All that is required is that you embody your full potential. Everything that has happened up until now has been gently preparing you for such a bold and courageous leap of faith into your power, can you feel it?

Plant your bare feet on the Earth and take some time to breathe in your new found strength. With every deep breath in draw your arms up to the sky, with every exhale bring your palms together in prayer position in front of your heart with the intention of releasing all feelings of needing to be small to please others. Feel the solid, nurturing energy of Gaia beneath you and the infinite loving power above. Pull these energies simultaneously into your heart chakra and receive the strength of their mingled energies. When you feel strong release them with gratitude and ask that every being that needs support will benefit from it now.

Know that you have everything you need in order to move forward.

Namaste
