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.”*

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

Published May 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Adsum, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor Artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani

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

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

The Dragon

The Dragon

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

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

Coming Into Power

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

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

Dee
