Daily Angel Oracle Card: Apollo ~ Focus Upon Your Strengths, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Apollo ~ Focus Upon Your Strengths, Card Meaning: “This card reminds you to focus upon your strengths and not upon any perceived weaknesses. Your strengths could include your loving heart, pure intentions, people skills, hobbies, or something that you excel in. Even if your talents still need polishing, these are strengths and assets. The more you bless and appreciate your strengths, the stronger they will grow. If you focus upon the so-called weaknesses, they will grow. This card comes to you as a reminder of the importance of viewing yourself with compassion and love. Anytime you find yourself thinking or feeling poorly about yourself, focus upon your strengths instead.

Additional meanings of this card: Use daily positive affirmations to lift your energy and faith. Speak of yourself in positive terms. Begin an exercise program to build and tone your muscles. This is a message of love or healing about a brother or brother figure.

Apollo is the Greek sun god who is the son of Zeus and twin brother of the goddess Artemis. Apollo is a powerful deity who can bring out the sunshine in your life, literally and figuratively. Renowned for his physical strength. Apollo can also act as a personal trainer to motivate your exercise program. He can also help you gain emotional and intellectual strength.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

You are stronger than you think! And Apollo is here to work with you in increasing the strengths which make you unique, your own special gifts. These gifts are why you are here. They are the blessings that you chose from a Soul level, knowing that when you came here to the physical plane you would be able to use these to heal those around you and the Earth herself.

The major obstacle for us in sharing our gifts is that our ego gets in the way; full of fears and doubts. It likes to remind us that we aren’t the only ones doing this, that there’s probably not enough left over for us. It tells us that there are others out there who are better at doing what we love, so why bother. It tells us that someone might steal our ideas so we must guard them carefully and not share them. Sometimes it even tells us to base our self-worth on what we look like or what others have told us about ourselves instead of knowing that we are so much more.

When you focus on your strengths, you create more strength. When you believe in yourself enough to try, you create opportunity. When you decide that you have what it takes no matter what anyone may say, you will be flooded with Universal support. This is not about competition, it is not about hoarding secrets. Instead, it is about having faith in the abundance and benevolence of the Universe. There is always more than enough to go around. We need your gifts.

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.”*

~by Stephen D Farmer

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.

Namaste

Breaking Free

Breaking Free, from the Healing With The Fairies, Oracle Card deck by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Breaking Free, from the Healing With The Fairies, Oracle Card deck by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Breaking Free: “Do you feel trapped in some life area? This card asks you to take the first step in freeing yourself from any unnatural restrictions.”

“Sometimes we feel trapped by outside circumstances. For instance, we believe that financial or family obligations compel us to accept an unsatisfactory job. Or we are afraid to leave or fix an unhealthy relationship. Perhaps we feel that our family or spouse will not “let: us pursue life enhancing activities, such as college classes or exercise programs. Then again, maybe we feel controlled by our addictions.

The fairies say that when we are responsible for ourselves, we are more responsible for others. That is, when we are happy, our family, friends, children, and spouse enjoy being around us and are inspired by our strength and confidence. Pray for help in releasing your fears and in assisting you in breaking free. God’s plan is that you be responsible, while simultaneously feeling as free as the birds, angels and fairies.

Affirmation

I am free, and I am powerful

I now allow myself to enjoy

this freedom and power.”*

~ by Doreen Virture, Ph.D

It is not always easy to come to terms with the fact that we create our own reality… and thus have to take full responsibility for what our current reality looks like. It would be so much easier to blame everyone else. Well, anyone else really! But yet, taking responsibility means that we are acknowledging our true power. Our power of manifestation. And then we can take steps to create change where it is needed.

It all really boils down to value, and self worth. What are you worthy of, in your own eyes? Are you only worthy of a job you hate? Are you only worthy of a toxic relationship? Are you only worthy of being overweight, unhappy or stuck in the rut you may currently find yourself in? And I realize that not everyone will resonate with this, and if you don’t… that means you have figured it out. You are several steps ahead of the game! Good on you! But if there is something that does need to change, the first place to start is the way that you value yourself. And I know I tend to repeat myself on this topic, but it really is that important, and we don’t always get it the first time.

If we wanted only things, people, situations and opportunities that were in alignment with our true selves, what would we be attracting compared to what we have been attracting thus far? If we decided that we were only going to live authentically, stepping into our own power, what would be the first thing to go? If we decided we were worthy of all of our dreams, for the highest good of all… what exactly would that look like?

It’s all within reach. As we break free from the confines of previously set limitations. As we bust out of old patterns, finally learn lessons, and kick our comfort zones to the curb.

Spreading our wings.

And flying free at last.

Namaste

Heracles ~ Strength

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Heracles ~ Strength, from the Mythic Oracle Card deck, by Carissa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Heracles ~ Strength

The Myth: “Heracles is the son of Zeus and Alcmene, a mortal woman. Jealous Hera drove Heracles mad, causing him to kill his brother’s children. To redeem himself, Heracles offered to serve his cousin, the king. The king set Heracles twelve seemingly impossible tasks to accomplish – tasks that require great strength, courage, humility, and wit to overcome. The tasks were supposed to be his undoing, but Heracles proved himself time and time again, accomplishing every task and acquiring magical items or knowledge with each. Upon completing all twelves tasks, Heracles was free to continue his heroic deeds throughout the land. Heracles eventually married Hebe, the daughter of Zeus and Hera.

The labors of Heracles area ll about self-mastery: mastery of the wild beasts within so that a person may use their raw powers in a wise and controlled manner. A number of Heracles’s tasks involved killing or capturing wild animals. One of these animals was the Nemean Lion, a creature with skin so thick it was invulnerable to weapons. Heracles ultimately used the beast’s own claws to cut through its sin and was thereby able to defeat it. After this, Heracles always wore the lion’s skin as armor.”

The Message: “This card is about strength, focus, discipline, and wisdom. With these qualities, we can harness our own raw powers and use them to create what we want in our lives.

If you find yourself feeling messy, undisciplined, erratic, or caught in any destructive or addictive activity, and your need for instant gratification outweighs everything else, it is time to get organized and take every necessary action to get your life back on track.

This card tells you that it is not enough to act on pure instinct. This is a time for focused strength, self-control, and discipline. This is a time for overriding ego-driven or childlike urges that are often based on a need for pleasure and instant gratification. This is a time for establishing your personal power and learning to govern your life from a place within you that is clear and true. Do whatever is necessary now to take back the power in your life. This is a time for great strength.”*

~ By Carissa Mellado

Yesterday we set our intentions for the new moon, and today we will take the first steps in order to make our dreams come true. Setting goals is the first step but then action must be taken. No one can achieve our goals for us!

Dedicating yourself to your plan will take effort, but it will reap great reward. Get out there and do what you have to do, this is not a time for wishing and dreaming, there must be action taken. Use all your mental strength, and even employ your physical strength to the task. You will need all of your courage to stick to your guns and stay the path, letting no one throw you off track. Not everyone will agree with what you are doing, but you do not need them to. You need followthrough.

Set the intention, do the work and achieve the goal.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Beautiful Bandit, from the Love Your Inner Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante, published by Blue Angel

Beautiful Bandit In A Reading: “You can choose right now to feel good about yourself. If you have been beating yourself up, stop it now. Don’t let anyone else decide how you should feel about yourself. Taking responsibility for your actions means that when you have done something that you feel is out of integrity, you do something about it that is constructive and useful. Damning yourself with judgment, or allowing another to steal your self-esteem, is neither of those things. The Divine Mother is telling you to forgive yourself and use your energy now to live the best life that you can. It is time to take your life back.”

Spiritual Guidance: “You are one tough sweetheart, a spiritual gangster, a beautiful bandit, stealing back from the unworthy that which rightfully belongs with you. You have certain spiritual rights that cannot be denied you. Your dignity, power and grace, your sense of beauty and self-esteem, your chosen belief systems, your energy and your right to take up space in this world rightfully belong to your soul. Your faith in your spiritual connection with the Universe and your sense of your life purpose belong to your soul, too. Even when you make mistakes, the Great Mother loves and forgives you, knowing that you are doing your best and are her precious daughter. You have a spiritual right to be free from torment, cruelty and mental anguish. You alone own the right to choose your thoughts and claim your freedom to make your own choices. You are fierce with wisdom. You know that another cannot ever successfully steal what truly belongs to you – and if they try, your sacred rage will rise up, and you will not hesitate to stake the winning claim for what is rightfully yours. The Beautiful Bandit comes to you with a message – anything that you feel has been taken from you unfairly shall be taken back by you. Claim what is yours by spiritual right. Justice will prevail.”

Sacred Ritual: “Stand upright. Say aloud, ‘I claim the entirety of my divine inheritance. All that is rightfully mine through divine justice and divine mercy is now returned to me. Through my own free will, so be it.” *

~ By Alana Fairchild

This is such an important message; I feel like it speaks directly to me. And I bet it speaks to you too. Taking up space. Expressing every aspect of your Being. Embracing yourself, your divine feminine energy and your worth. Seeing your value. Kicking ass at being so amazingly you.

Why is that so hard to do? Why do we keep ourselves smaller; stuffed into the boxes that were made for us by others? Why do we limit ourselves, doubt ourselves, judge ourselves so harshly? We over analyze, we stress, we criticize and we lose faith in all that we have to offer the world. We give up way too easy. And we deserve better. So much better than that.

Often we go up to bat for others, for a cause we believe in. Animals, the planet, oppressed people. Yet we get the short end of our own stick. We are the first thing we cut out on when we are low on time and energy.

All that has to change. Right now.

Step into July with new resolve; strong intention; complete clarity of vision.

Embrace who you are. Cherish your individuality. Know that you really are perfect just as you are, but it is also ok to be a work in progress. We need our fierceness back. Our wild hearts need the chance to guide us.

We came here for a reason, and that reason is to be as powerful as we are capable of being. So much more powerful than we have yet to realize. And the only way to access this power fully is to commit to loving ourselves. Truly, deeply, authentically.

Namaste

Adsum

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Adsum, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor Artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani

Adsum: “A candle casts light on an open book held by a young woman sitting at a desk. Her eyes are drawn to the side, as if she were distracted from her reading by a curious thought or someone nearby. She is surrounded by several people, many of whom are somewhat translucent and glowing. An Angel bends and whispers, ‘Adsum, I arrive. I am here. I attend you.’

Adsum is a single word that has many, many meanings. First, it affirms your own strength and focus in the present. You can use it as a command word whenever you find yourself distracted from what is at hand. Say, ‘Adsum, I am here,’ and feel yourself attend to the situation or person before you.

This word also declares your arrival at your goals and all your wishes coming true. Say, ‘Adsum, I arrive, ‘ and take a moment to see yourself reaching your goals absolutely. Whenever you get this card, know that you are on your way to the results you seek with the help of others and the glorious help of Spirit.

This card also reminds you to be assured that, no matter what is happening in your  life, Spirit is always there for you. They reach out to you, sharing their light and power and serving you in every way. From the least to the highest, from Grandma to the Divine, an eternal community attends you. Say, ‘Adsum,’ and take some time to attend them, too. You can act on your promise to God, as Spirit lifts you upon their shoulders. You are present for each other, and together you arrive at your dreams.”

As Challenger: “This card shows that you may feel you have lost sight of your purpose and contact with your friends, Higher Self, and the Spirits who attend you. Maybe you are too emotional, or stressed, or just too busy. Say, ‘Adsum,’ and remind yourself that you are here for a reason. It is time to do the work that helps you arrive at your dreams. No matter why you feel disconnected, this is when you need your life helpers and spirit guides the most. They have not deserted you, so do not desert yourself. Open the door and renew your commitment. Meet them in your life and your meditations. When you do, you will find the help, love and joy that attend you right now. During this phase, it is important to take some action toward your purpose each day. Even little steps will take you to your destination.”

Akashic Force: “Close your eyes and sense all your spirit guides gathering. take a deep breath and feel the words Adsum, I arrive inside you. The Divine stands next to you as you arrive at your highest dream. See it now.”*

~ By Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

** Adsum card artwork by Cheri Polk

I love this card, it perfectly shows how supported we are, whether we realize it or not! We all have a team, made up of those who wish to assist, guide and work with us from the Etheric realms. We are truly never alone. When we feel alone or disconnected, it is us who have cut ourselves off, not our team that has deserted us! It is as if we have blinders on, and are unable to see what lies all around us. In these moments, faith is our greatest ally.

Your team wishes to work with you on a much closer and clearer level of communication. Are you willing to receive this invitation? Adsum is the magic word we have been given, a gift to help us facilitate the connection we desire. Use this word to bring you into the Now moment. Think of it as a secret password or a Harry Potter style invocation to create an instant and powerful connection to your angels and guides. It is a word of affirmation on your part, a wish to work with those who know you deeply, love you unconditionally and want only what serves your Highest Good.

Use Adsum to open your heart, third eye and crown chakras. Use Adsum to release negativity and toxicity in your life and replace it with magic, healing and wisdom.

Say Adsum and watch carefully for signs, symbols and messages as you strengthen your communication with your team. They eagerly await you opening up to receive their love and guidance. And most importantly, your realization and understanding that you are truly never alone.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Dragon, from The Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Dragon: “Power ~ Strength”

The Animal Guides Of Avalon

“The Dragon come to offer you its power and strength, to protect and fortify you on this leg of your journey. The Dragon symbolizes true power and reminds you that this infinite source is not found within your personality or ego.

True power resides deep within your soul. So call on the Dragon’s spiritual power and strength, and you will find a vast resource to strengthen your resolve… through morality, integrity, and purpose. If you are struggling with these issues, the Dragon will restore them to you. Remember that the power of the spiritual world can never be broken, and true strength is found within – not in the outside world. Never mistake a gentle man for a weak one.

Watch for a signal – the Dragon always makes the next step clear, and it gives  you the power to take it.”*

~ Colette Baron-Reid

Just as you need it most, dragon swoops down to your rescue. When you work with Dragon energy, calling it in to galvanize you with power and strength, your very own Dragon guide will be assigned to work with you. This Dragon will be there for you whenever you call, whenever you need extra help, courage or guidance. All you have to do is ask, and align yourself with it’s powerful energies.

If you are not sure where your dragon is, what it’s name is or how to contact it, ask for a clear sign. Even the fact that you are reading this now, is a clear sign that your dragon wishes to work with you now!

Often when we have difficult decisions to make, we feel very alone and isolated. Fear separates us from those who may not understand our predicament, or we may hide our true feelings to avoid judgement or criticism. We decide we must go it alone, and hide our true feelings deep inside, often left feeling abandoned and vulnerable. Dragon is here to help.

As much as you may have been struggling lately, as much as you may be battling the fear, Dragon will protect you. This protection is all-encompassing: physical, mental and spiritual. Know that as you move forward, Dragon’s firey breath will burn away any obstacles standing in your way. He, or She, will blaze the trail before you, throwing open doors, expanding possibilities and setting the world alight. She is a deep ally, a true friend and a force to be reckoned with…

As are you.

You are a mirror of her strength and passion. Can you see it?

You have the power to burn through old fears, burn old belief systems.

You have what it takes to be powerful, courageous and strong.

And now you see….

You are one with the Dragon.

You always have been.

Always will be.

Namaste
