Daily Angel Oracle Card: Coming Into Power, from the Gateway Oracle Card deck, by Denise Linn

Coming Into Power: “I step into my power boldly and confidently”

Card Meaning: “You have been gathering your inner forces and are coming into your own strength. Assume your power. Accept the vibrant truth that all you need is already within  you. It is safe to own your deepest inner gifts.

The Universe Wants You To Know: “If you have given away your authority to something or someone else, now is your chance to reclaim it. Pulling this card indicates that it is time to stand in your own light. If you are holding on to any beliefs that you will not be liked or will be rejected if you step into your potential, let them go! The more you shine in your own radiance, the more others can see the glow of their own capability. Your strength can heal others and bring light into the hearts of many.”

Questions To Ask Yourself: “What has stopped me from expanding my potential in the past? How can I come into my power more fully? In what ways can I support and help others with my own strength?”*

~ By Denise Linn

Whatever has held you back in the past is about to be blown wide apart. It may be your perception of yourself, your value or your capabilities. It may be a situation, person or circumstance. It could be something that used to feel like Mt Everest and now all of a sudden feels like less than a speed bump. Only you know what’s been holding you back, and it has a lot to do with perception, past experience, worry, anxiety, blame, guilt and shame… all that low density sticky stuff that will literally melt away. With grace and ease. Like it never existed. You may even find yourself laughing at your past self, unable to believe that this held you hostage for as long as it did.

Ah, the lightness and freedom when the constraints come off. When you finally realize just how powerful you are and step into it wholeheartedly. What a wonderful and profound moment when you realize that anything you set your mind to is possible. The conviction that you can co-create exactly what you want in hand with the Universe. That it is so much easier than you previously thought. That it all starts now. That everything you have been through to date was just part of your journey and got you here, to exactly where you need to be in order to move forward.

Let go of the past and step fearlessly into the future. Recreate yourself by being true to your Soul, listening to your heart, and finding your voice. You have everything you need in order to succeed, all you need to do is come into your power. Know that you are worthy, you are capable, you are powerful and you are free.

Go ahead and say it!

I AM Worthy

I AM Capable

I AM Powerful

I AM Free

I AM

Namaste

Gut Instincts

Published April 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Gut Instincts, from the Chakra Insights Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gut Instincts, from the Chakra Insights Oracle Card deck, by  Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Gut Instincts: “Intuition. Knowing. Sensing. Trust.”

“In the center of your being is a quiet space of inner knowing. Still your mind so you can connect with the call of your instincts.”

Card Story: “Calm and poised, the lion knows who he is. He responds from the purest form of confidence – a deep sense of knowing. He knows where water is. He knows where to find food. He knows how to go to keep his family safe. He knows when it is time to rest, to play, to sneak, and to run. He does all this without thinking. Without doubt, question or hesitation. The lion is pure wisdom in action because he follows the moment to moment inner pulse of his being and the undeniable call of his instincts.”

Card Message: “Our gut instincts are our soul’s way of communicating and guiding us on the path of life. While our minds produce thoughts and rational interpretation of our experience, our instincts connect to a more sensitive, intuitive wisdom that often communicates through physical sensations in our bodies.  This quiet nudge is our inner knowing, our connection with the Universe. It is always there if we stop to sense it. Do we follow its wisdom?

This card is a call to trust the inner feeling of your own gut instincts. The part of you that may not always seem logical or rational but nudges you with whispered guidance of what is right and true. Bring awareness to your feelings and physical sensations. Notice what happens when you act on your feelings… and when you go against them.

It is time to value the knowing wisdom of your ‘gut instincts’ more in your daily life. To pause for a moment before making purely mental decisions, and check in with the quiet inner voice of your body. The more you tune in to this aspect of your being, the more clearly it will speak to you and the more powerfully you will know how to respond.

Practice this in simple ways, as you travel through your day, allowing yourself to follow your instincts as you journey. Turn left when you feel to, even if you normally go right… go for a walk when the path calls, even if you think you do not have time to do so. You may not know at the time why, but by learning to trust these inner promptings, you will notice that life begins to flow more smoothly and you naturally find yourself in the right place at the right time doing the right thing… a lot more often!

Trust your intuition… and have the ‘guts’ to act on it!”

~ By Caryn Sangster

Where in your life are you living out of alignment? Where are  you compromising? Where are you refusing to listen to your intuition, ignoring the voice of your Soul speaking to you?

Maybe it is out of fear. Fear of change, fear of rocking the boat. Fear of losing what you have, facing something new; or of getting out of your comfort zone.

Your intuition is one of your most powerful tools for guiding you through life. It can tell you if a person, situation or opportunity is for you, or too good to be true. It can tell you if something is not quite right and to slow down and pay closer attention. It can lead you forward or stop you in your tracks. And it is never wrong if you learn to tap into it and heed it’s wisdom.

Are you listening to your intuition? Are you using it as your GPS to guide you? Are you tuning in and really feeling it?

When you feel wary, there is usually a reason. Often it is your intuition telling you that someone is wearing a mask. They may not even be aware of their mask, maybe they have been wearing it for so long that they believe it to be their true face. Maybe you enter into a situation that suddenly doesn’t feel right and you aren’t quite sure why you feel it. Or maybe you are talking to someone and you get a few red flags, but you really want to ignore them because you don’t want to see the truth. Whatever it is, if you commit to listening and following your instincts, it will save you a lot of time and energy… and often money and heartbreak.

Learn to trust yourself. Stand in your power. Find your strength, courage and confidence. Make decisions that are for your Highest Good and the Highest Good of All involved. And do not ignore it when your intuition tells you to turn the other way.

Namaste

Orpiment

Published March 23, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Orpiment, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman published by Sterling Ethos

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orpiment, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman published by Sterling Ethos

Orpiment

Crystal Colour: “Deep orange surrounded by gold and yellow shards”
Related Chakra: “Sacral Chakra”

Crystal Medicine: “The medicine of Orpiment encourages you to strive and succeed in everything you put your intention and energy into. It works intimately with the element of fire as it burns through any doubts and brings a deeper sense of focus, strength, and embodiment of self. In this space you can find the recipe for success and the support of the Universe to manifest your dreams and passions.”

Crystal Meaning: “Manifestation crystal. Allows you to connect to new projects and ideas. Connects to the warrior energy within, creating strength and courage in your life. Aligns to success in your life. Assists in holding and staying focused on clear positive intentions. Supports strength and commitment to the self.”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “You have attracted this card today because success is shining upon you and your current situation right now. The devas are working with you closely to bring what is required for success at this time. Waste no energy on how and when this success will come to pass – just trust and know you will be blessed with a wonderful outcome. At times you have to let go of the finer details of your dreams. It is time to allow the flowers of success to blossom as you receive this well earned blessing in your life. Whatever you have asked guidance on today, know that success is in the air and there is no need to worry any longer because things will turn out better than you could imagine. If you are already feeling the blessings of success, be sure to enjoy each moment, knowing that you have earned this gift and deserve to experience this in all areas of your life.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

This is a message of manifestation, abundance and prosperity; good luck and fortune. But it is coming directly from YOUR creativity and previous work. YOU have created this, and can be proud of your efforts. YOU made the commitment and stuck it out, putting heart and soul into it. And yes, probably some blood, sweat and tears too!

It is time to reap the rewards of your vision, intention, focus, action and conviction. You made this happen. Way to go YOU! Celebrate your victory. Claim your hard earned success; it is imminent if not happening right this very moment.

Connect to your creative aspect by working with the colours orange and gold and the spectrum between. All the coppers and bronzes and shades of the sunset are yours now. Wear them, paint with them, create with them or buy yourself some spectacular tulips and enjoy a burst of colour at home. Wear your orange stones too, or place them in your pocket or under your pillow. Carnelian, Amber, Citrine, Strawberry Quartz are all fantastic examples. It is fairly unlikely you have Orpiment at home, unless you are a collector of fine mineral specimens, but remember, you can connect to the energies by gazing at the card and intending to do so!

Take the opportunities that come your way this weekend, they are stepping stones to something much bigger. Get out and celebrate with friends. Treat yourself to something fun. You deserve it.

Namaste

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose

Published March 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose: The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~ Tenzin Gyatso; The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet

“The North Node points our the best areas for us to direct our talents and our wills.

The North Node shows the area of gifts. It represents destiny. It is directly opposed to the South Node which is much more serious and restrictive. The North Node represents where we benefit from good work done in past lives and how that assists us in the here and now. The North Node is the place in the chart where life becomes easier. It acts like a karmic Jupiter where a doorway opens and suddenly you are where you need to be.

When The North Node  card presents itself, you can be assured destiny has a place in your situation. Through many life lessons, you are about to arrive at a place for your highest good. Your life is expanding and opportunities pour in swiftly, catching you quite by surprise. This card also represents past life memories and karmic connections.

You may meet people whom you have known over many past lives, perhaps in a soul family where bonds form very quickly. You are taking on a larger view of your life, which not only emphasizes your talents, but aligns your talents with like minded souls. It is a fortuitous time to begin a privately owned business or other professional venture that will bring in extra finances. Whatever this venture may be, fun, creativity and optimism, will be a part of it. At this time you will feel less limited, and your goals and plans will have far-reaching potential.

Keep in mind, the lunar nodes always bring shifts and changes. For instance, a relationship with someone who has ‘destiny’ spelled all over him or her, may suddenly walk into your life. If so, this relationship will start rapidly and be life-altering. One job may end swiftly and you will find yourself in a much more suitable position. If the energy is used correctly, it will promote greater optimism and prosperity. This means finances are also likely to increase.

This energy is now telling you that the schooling part is over for now, lessons have been learned, and you are now to act on these lessons toward a greater destiny. At this time, it is evident where you need to go and where you need to be.

As the soul’s messenger, the appearance of the North Node card in a spread indicates growing into what is called the larger unknown, meaning you are moving toward a point that promises greater fulfillment. The nodes are karmic; therefore the lessons are not easy ones. Matters will develop suddenly but there is still work to be done. Luck is on your side with an opening toward greater things. Karmic lessons learned and processed bring fulfillment and happiness.”

North Node Card in Brief: “Life’s purpose; the soul’s enlargement; balance; karmic rewards and karmic bonds; memories of previous lives; reinforcement; support; movement forward; being right; the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; undiscovered talents; fulfillment; the things we can fall back on; being in the flow; trusting destiny; meaningful exchanges; inner balance; the foundation for future success; achievement; giving credit; considering the other side; working with others; emotional security; the path of least resistance; adaptability; inner strength; playing games; wisdom; trust; working well with youth; understanding children; optimism; a stroke of good luck; generosity; charity; wealth; the color deep red; kind authority; the exploration of ideas; expansion and growth.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “Ten of Cups”

Key Ideas: “Positive karma; rewards; the soul’s enlargement; being in the right place at the right time.”*

Strength ~ Elephant

Published February 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Strength ~ Elephant, from the Spiritsong Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy

Strength ~ Elephant: “Courage and Endurance”

Card Message: “Elephant balances strength and gentleness, but the main source of her strength is love. Instead of using her strength to exert power over others, she uses it to keep others from exerting power over her. Her strength shines in her compassion, her self-esteem and in her levels of endurance. Her faith in her spiritual strength keeps her resilient. The spirit of Elephant is a reminder of what your life’s motivation is, fueling you with the drive and inner strength to pursue it.”

Key Words: “Self control, inner strength, courage, compassion, love, patience, vision, endurance.”

Strength ~ Elephant As Challenger: “Self-doubt will erode your courage. Reconnect to your core strength by drawing on your willpower. Count your current blessings, as this will renew your self-confidence.”

Challenger Keywords: “Fear, self-doubt, insecurity, imbalance, anger.”

~ by Paulina Cassidy

There will be challenges on the road ahead and they are simply tests of our commitment to ourselves and our dreams. Are we serious about what we are pursuing? Then we will be asked to prove it. Rather than getting frustrated or distracted or giving up or feeling sorry for ourselves, we will stay on track. We will believe in ourselves and we will use our inner resources to stay strong. We will not need to fight but we will stand true for what we believe in, and that is the medicine of elephant.

Elephants are very intelligent, they are family oriented and extremely loyal. They are sensitive and caring, and highly aware. They represent strong connection and harmony, protection and solidarity, and the Divine Feminine power of compassion and nurturing. All of these aspects can be used in your journey ahead.

Meditate on the above image and see what elephant has to tell you, there may be a special meaning just for you. Maybe you need a little extra courage and strength to face the challenges that lay ahead. Maybe you need to reconnect to family and realize that you are not isolated or alone. Maybe elephant wants you to know that you are stronger than you think.

Watch for elephant to come into your awareness in the coming days. Even a glimpse on television or a picture in a magazine is confirmation from the Universe that you are being taken care of and the strength you need is available to you. It is also a reminder to come back to this message and know that you are on the right path, that the challenges are only tests and that better things lie ahead for you.

So stay the course, and know that you have what it takes to succeed. Have faith in yourself and do not give up hope. Change can be uncomfortable but if you meet it with grace and acceptance you are sure to win.

Namaste

Tree Of Life

Published November 13, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Tree Of Life, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer

“The breath of life is all around us. Self-sustaining, the universal tree of life provides a gateway to connect us to the knowledge of self. You are deeply connected to the universe and the world around you. When you respond to the actions and reactions of the earth and its people, you ultimately decide how you will grow and thrive.

The tree of life requires you to look at your breath and to ground yourself in the present moment. Nature does not concern itself with the future. Plants know exactly what they need to do in any given moment. Living in the present will provide you with more time. Your presence is all that is required right now;  you are strong and resilient. Hold your space!

Where are your roots? Plant and keep your feet firmly on the ground now. Any sudden change may cause instability in your personal life. Dig your roots deep in to earth to to create a firm foundation that you can build from. Are you relying too much on the support of others to help you grow? You have the answers within you to determine your direction of growth, but you must be willing to face your inner self and core beliefs. With solid nurturing and time, you will begin to see results.

Family matters are of concern now. Be open to solutions to achieve the outcome you desire. Be careful with decision making. Compromising too much over an issue will leave you feeling powerless. Like a branch on a tree, growth will occur in an area that supports the core structure or it will break and drop in order to maintain the overall strength of the tree itself. You may need to drop a branch or two to solidify your point of view or to reach a resolution. Patience is key.”

Affirmation: “I AM unified through presence and action. My strength is supported with loving roots.”*

~ By Anna Stark

As above so below. We are all intricately connected; tethered together by the energy of the Universal One. Yet sometimes we feel disconnected or isolated, way out on the end of the branch, struggling, feeling alone and unsupported. Sometimes it is time to come back to our roots, our presence, our own unique way of being an integral part of community.

When we feel isolated, we must be of service and bring out our gifts to share with others. Fearlessly, shamelessly and with as much creative expression as we can muster. It’s too easy to play the wall flower, the victim, hanging back and waiting for life to happen in order for us to participate. We wait for others to make decisions for us, to offer our lives to us in a way that we desire. But we must realize that it is us who is creating every step of the way. And time is passing, faster than ever before; playing tricks with us, spinning away when we aren’t looking.

We must stay balanced, grounded. Put our hearts and souls into what is really important to us. Try our best to turn away from all that distracts us from our true calling. Put the roots of our energy into what means most and allow ourselves to grow up into our potential.

What is it that you wish to create? Where are you putting your valuable energy?

How can you ground yourself in your passion, feel your roots hold you steady while you reach for the stars?

Namaste

Amazonite ~ Life Purpose

Published July 26, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Amazonite ~ Life Purpose, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Amazonite ~ Life Purpose, from the Crystal Reading Oracle Card deck, by Rachelle Charman

Amazonite

Crystal Colour: “Bluish green with white streaks”

Related Chakras: “Solar Plexus and Crown Chakras”

Crystal Medicine: “Amazonite invites us all to connect with this powerful crystal, offering the opportunity to discover your life purpose. It is constantly encouraging you to follow your dreams, and brings to the surface for healing any fear or doubts that may hold you back from truly stepping onto your path. This powerful medicine allows you to unlock the inner wisdom that is required to awaken your divine purpose here on Earth.”

Crystal Meaning: “Aligns you to your life purpose and encourages you to step onto the path with strength and courage. Assists you in finding the divine truth in all things. Facilitates deep internal reflection. Encourages you to come into alignment with your divine will, manifesting your heart’s desires.”

Oracle reading Message From the Crystal Deva Amazonite: “The devas have arrived today to suggest it is a perfect time to focus your attention on your life purpose. It is the birthright of everyone on this planet to know, experience, and embody fully his or her divine purpose. Your life purpose is your essence and what you love to do expressed and manifested through you. The devas of Amazonite encourage you to actively connect to a deeper aspect of yourself, your wisdom, and your soul’s purpose here on Earth. Events, situations, inspirations, and actions occurring right now are all part of the plan aligning and connecting you to your life purpose. As you work with the devas, you are encouraged to let go of any fears associated with stepping onto  your divine path. Trust that you are worthy and deserving of manifesting and living your dreams. Open and receive the new insights and awareness that is flowing into your life right now. Work actively with Amazonite and become aware of the synchronicities and signs given to you by the devas and the Universe. Continue to trust your intuition and inner guidance as you allow your life purpose to manifest into this world.”*

~ By Rachelle Charman

Ahhh so this is what yesterday’s card wished us to create with our focused intention, of course, our life purpose. When we manifest the path of our soul purpose, we step into alignment with all that is our birthright; all the joy, the bliss, the peace, balance and abundance. Doors open for us. Opportunity presents itself to us. The right people walk into our lives and the right people walk out of them too. Synchronicity abounds; signs, symbols and messages are coming in strong. Anything is possible when you align with your purpose as you are aligning with the reason you came here, guided by your Higher Self. Notice that the above messages asks us to “allow” your life purpose to manifest, this means that there is an aspect of surrender and trust; having faith that if you follow your heart and focus on your dreams you can manifest anything you truly desire. It’s also a reminder to get out of your own way, which usually means releasing all those “shoulds” out of your inner dialogue, shoulds are the egos way of keeping us in a fear state, release them and do what you know is in your heart and you cannot go wrong.

Amazonite has volunteered to assist you in this important work. If you have an amazonite it is the perfect time to wear, carry or place it under your pillow. If you do not have one, they are very easy to come by in any reputable metaphysical shop. Hold your amazonite in your right hand and ask it to assist you in finding and aligning with your true soul path. Follow your intuition and your inner guidance.

Be receptive to change; yet another level of transformation is at hand.

Namaste
