Vishnu: “Balance”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Namaste

Sobek and Horus

Published March 18, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sobek and Horus, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sobek and Horus, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr

Sobek and Horus: “Reconciliation of Opposites; Forgiveness and Understanding”

“Sobek and Horus represent two powerful opposing psychic forces found in all human beings – the old and the new parts of each of us. They appear together as adversarial allies to hep us reconcile opposing forces and create harmonious, balanced union within.

The crocodile god, Sobek, represents strength and fortitude, fertility and rebirth. From Sobek, we inherited the reptilian brain that contains the ancient evolutionary patterns. It rules the autonomic functions that have kept us protected to grow forward.

Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris. In this oracle he comes into maturity and prepares to step into his full power as the enlightened ruler. All pharaohs are called Hours. As a hawk headed diety, he is associated with higher mental and spiritual functions.

If you have drawn this card, it is time to take a deeper look at the energetic desire to evolve while stepping into a new way of being. You may experience a sense of conflict from the old self. In truth, it is willing but needs to know that what is of value will not be lost and that mistakes will not be repeated. This is an opportunity to take stock of the newer self that wants to evolve and step forward, and of the old self that wants to make sure you have a solid foundation to stand on.

Drawing this card indicates that resolution is afoot. If there is a conflict in your life or something in the way of your forward or upward motion, meditating with these two seemingly opposing forces can bring you to a deeper understanding of a relationship or situation. It can also open the way for forgiveness. If you bump into that part of yourself that is closed to forgiveness, stay open: it is one of the most potent keys for resolution.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

The only way to truly move forward is to release all the old. Old thought patterns and conditioning. Old ways of thinking and of being in the world. This may involve great changes, releasing people and situations; even moving house,  changing jobs or going in a completely different direction.

In order to do this, you will have to forgive those who were placed in your life to teach you lessons that have made you uncomfortable or caused you any pain or trauma. This is not always easy to do, yet if we don’t release them from the grip of our pain, it is us who eternally suffer. It does not mean that you condone the behaviour, it means that you forgive and move on so that you do not attract these same patterns or lessons any more. You are done with all that.

See yourself standing in front of the person you need to release. If there are more than one, then do one at a time. Look this person right in the eye and tell them: “I forgive you, I release you.” Then feel yourself quite literally sprouting wings and spreading them wide. See yourself fly right through the sacred space created by Sobek and Horus on the card image as they hold safe space for you. Look up and see yourself fly high above the person you are releasing, looking down upon them standing there alone, getting smaller and smaller as you soar high above. Allow yourself a couple of deep breaths and take in the idea that you are now completely free of this burden you have been carrying. You are light, you are free and you are able to detach from all the drama that this person has caused you. You never have to fly back down to them and experience this pain again. If you choose to have this person stay in your life, set the intention that your relationship with them will start anew, with you being fully empowered and you will never lose your freedom to them, or anyone else, ever again. Know that Sobek and Horus will always provide this safe space for you to forgive and release all those who are holding you back in your life or causing you any pain.

And so it is

Namaste

Beyond The Threshold Of Fear

Beyond The Threshold Of Fear:

“Enter the lion’s jungle!
Don’t think about getting hurt!
Fearful thoughts are
phantoms of the mind!

No one is harmed in this jungle.
Everything is compassion and love.
It is your fear holding you back,
like a bar behind the door.”

~RUMI

“How I celebrate for you. After so long away from home, you are finally returning! Beyond the threshold of fear, you dispense with your doubts, hesitations, cautions and tentativeness. They are old friends with whom you no longer have anything in common.

‘Goodbye old friends, I wish you well,’ you say, whilst turning your face to the burgeoning light of a new and yet ancient world. You are visiting as though for the first time and yet, somehow, also remember deep in your sacred heart. Finally, we can sit together in the charming courtyard at home. We shall tell our tales of adventure and laugh, and we’ll dance and sing. Eventually, day shall pass into night and we’ll gaze beneath our feet, our mouths gaping open in awe and minds utterly blank, rendered dumb in sweet submission to beauty, as we watch the world spinning on her axis.”

After so long, you are changing your relationship to fear; no more shall it hold you in its thrall. You are becoming able to observe it, to witness it, even to have compassion rather than resistance. Instead of unconsciously sabotaging your growth and choosing to slumber in darkness, you awaken and delight in the light and sound of your divine being.

Push and pull, one step forward and a half step back. So it has been for so long, and you have endured. Yes, you are winning the race, brave one, and fear is left to fizzle out. It was always a far less beautiful firework than your passionate conviction for love anyway. Better to let that dazzling firework come to light instead – much more satisfying.

Oh, what a spiritual marathon you have been running! Now the end is in sight. You are drinking the sacred waters to replenish you from your journey. The cups are pushed into your hands by encouraging angels as you approach that blessed sash marking the finish line. Your body and soul are on this journey together and now they are ready for victory, and yes, to rest and recover from the effort. Rest now before a new adventure begins from a completely different state of being.

This oracle comes with spiritual guidance for you. You have broken through a barrier, a self-imposed barrier of fear (whether it seemed to originate from within your consciousness or from an external set of circumstances) that held you back from taking the steps you are now taking, or just about to take. These steps may feel strange, new, uncertain and exciting. Your mind might not have received the memo that fear based existence is no longer in operation for you. It may need a loving, tender, reassuring and firm update that the relationship you have with fear is now rather different. You are the witness, not the victim. Your consciousness is strong enough to hold it in compassion. You don’t collapse under its weight; in fact, it is becoming less and less substantial for you. When it is there, it seems less convincing than what it once appeared to be, compelling still at times perhaps, but not anywhere near as powerful as it once was. That power has been claimed by your heart instead.

So give your mind the memo! Get used to the new way and take steps. Test your legs – you’ll find them powerful and ready. Get set to fly! Test your wings – trust is one, daring is the other. You’ll find them enthusiastic for flight and ready to learn to ride the currents, purpose-built for soaring to great heights. Trust in your vision – without the murky filter of fear  it is sharp and clear. You can see what is meant for you, what is true for you what is beckoning you forward now. Take the running leap. There is no darkness and light for you anymore – just life, living, free and clear. I’ll be running and flying beside you. We’ll soar and dive and rise, together. Let’s play!”*

We are inundated by fear and chaos. That is how they are trying to control us; it’s always worked in the past. They want us to feel small, insignificant and powerless. They want us to feel that there is nothing that we can do to change what is happening. They want us in victim mode, helpless, hopeless, fearful and distrusting. It’s called Separation.

But it’s shifting. We are shifting. We are waking up. Awakening.

Their hold is loosening, not because they want it to but because they can no longer hold us. We are too bright, too full of Light. Too powerful. Too peaceful.

Too… awake…

We can change what is happening by refusing to buy into the fear and the chaos. It is not an easy job, yes it is challenging and yes there will be opposition. But, it is necessary, it is vital and it is no longer an option to ignore what must be done. It is no longer feasible to sleepwalk, to ignore, to play small. It is time to come out of hiding and blaze brightly, so brightly that empowerment is the only option.

Namaste

Jade Emperor

Jade Emperor: “Organization”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~ By Stacey Demarco

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

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

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

Namaste

The Velvet Queen

Published November 23, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

The Velvet Queen: “A rare prize is to be bestowed upon you. The universe is confirming that the most luscious dreams of your heart are being nurtured into manifestation. To this end, you shall be given a saving grace, an intervention if need be. To be open to receive, surrender doubt in favour of unconditional trust. Through your trust and optimism, you make it easier for the universe to give you a most deserved gift.”

“A rare prize is worth the effort to attain it. Your efforts will need to include loving discipline. Loving discipline is not about trying to bend the world according to your will but rather about readying yourself to align with the spirit of what you want to receive.

To receive, rather than attempt to take by force, requires strength, trust, spiritual intelligence and courage. It is easier to try and force things from a fearful place, but it is more effective and empowering to learn how to attract and receive through consciously chosen surrender. This allows the universe to do its best work for you!

To surrender is not about passivity, but doing all we can do and then trusting life enough to let go and allow the outcome to be what it will. Surrendering is not giving up. It’s about trusting that there is a great and generous intelligence expressing itself through our lives, and if open to it, great treasures are bestowed upon us.

So the discipline spoken of here is about changing your consciousness. It asks you to release issues around self-worth. Why should you not be empowered and assisted by the universe to create a life that fills you with joy and feels ‘just right’ for you? Of course you should, can and will be! Release any lack of self-worth that would get in the way of your opening in complete trust to the universe.

The Velvet Queen assists in shifting the mind from scarcity to prosperity consciousness where we feel we can receive precious gifts with an easy open attitude, neither holding on to them out of fear, nor pushing them away out of shame or guilt. When she enters your life, she brings a sign of abundance headed your way. This might manifest itself in many and varied ways: in financial wealth; in career opportunities; increased love and affection in your relationships; or as a sense of living in the rich fullness of life, spiritually as well as emotionally and materially.

She also indicates a prize that is worth attaining. It is said that the sweetest fruit is at the top of the tree and therefore worth the climb. The Velvet Queen lets you know that your most prized dream is within reach, through a combination of letting life unfold as it will and your own disciplined efforts. Don’t give up. You cannot make the fruit on the tree grow faster – that will happen according to the rhythm of life – but you can certainly do your part to be ready to climb the tree at the right moment to savour the sweetness of success.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Say the following statement aloud:
“I release all fears and judgments I have ever made, in this or any lifetime, about material possessions, fear of loss, fear of greed, fear of distraction and fear of attachment. I open my hands and heart to receive all I need, when I need it, for as long as I need it, to live my beautiful and unique life path.”
You are now going to visualize, imagine, feel or pretend that you can breathe in and out through your entire body. You can inhale deeply not only through your mouth or nose, but also through your skin.
As you inhale gently, you take in the gift of life. As you exhale gently, not only out of your mouth and nose, but also out of the pores of your skin, you easily release what you no longer need (even if you don’t consciously know what that is).
Do this for several moments.
When you feel relaxed and clearer, say this statement three times:
‘I receive a sweet and rare prize designed to be mine,
Through the power of love divine.’
You have finished your healing trick.”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and/or evening for a few days, or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.
‘I am strong and have surrendered into the perfection of life’s loving grace.’*

~By Alana Fairchild, Card Artwork: “Carnelia” by Maxine Gadd

Again we are put on notice of wonderful gifts coming our way from the Universe! And again we are reminded not to block them through fear, self-doubt, feelings of lack or feelings of low self-worth.

Become the magnet for what you desire to create. Live in faith. Trust in the Universe to provide. Know that you are worthy. Know that you are Divine. Know that what you desire most; what you dream of, is possible. It may not come in the form that you think, but it will come. And it will be better than you ever thought possible!

Dream. Be. Trust. Believe. Know in your heart that it is coming to you as you read this.

And so it is

Namaste

Oya ~ Power

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Oya ~ Power, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

Oya ~ Power: “Change is welcome. Allow the storm to pass, as it is necessary to clear the way. You are protected in your search for equality. Do not misuse your power.”

“In a whirl of purple, the storm of change builds. Lightning flashes across the sky, and thunder growls. In the center of the maelstrom is might Oya, the Yoruban horned goddess of power, directing the storm like the conductor of an orchestra.

Wife of Shango, the storm god, Oya is a force of nature. She clears the way for new growth, destroys what is not needed, and is a rainmaker, creating rivers and new paths forward. She does not bring change gently – she brings it with great power and action.

Oya is particularly favorable to women who have need of protection and action, and she assists women in matters of equality with men. Her mysteries were traditionally passed from women to woman, mother to daughter, so many of her rituals have been kept tightly. She is considered a goddess of magic, and her nine daughters help her to cast change magic.

Oya may come into your life when you most need change but are seemingly unable to invoke it yourself. If you are in a rut of find yourself in a situation that you simply do not have the resources to change, she is a great goddess to invoke. Sometimes we all need to move a part of our lives in a certain direction but don’t have the strength to begin – such as moving away, saying good-bye, or breaking up with someone. Oya can help you make change that are necessary but may be very difficult. As a goddess of divination, she gives you clear, concise answers when you consult her.”

Shadow Side: “Oya is a ferocious storm bringer. If you call upon her without good cause of purely for revenge against the person that you are changing away from, then this energy may be turned upon you. True power is handled and sent from a centered place, yet in this day and age we see power misued everywhere. Oya’s warrior energy is fierce too – there may be alternatives to such a forceful, action oriented approach.”

Symbols: “Dark skinned goddess wearing purple, horned turban or hat, the number nine, storms, rain, water buffalo”

The best time to invoke Oya is during a storm.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Oya comes to us as we are stepping back into the Divine Feminine, taking back our power. This message is not just for women, for we all have a balance within that has been out of sync for far too long. We are all Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. When in balance, these energies can co-create harmoniously.

But they have not been in balance for a very long time. This is mirrored to us in the ludicrous antics of the American political situation. It is mirrored in the violence and oppression of women and minorities. It is shown to us every time a woman, child or animal is hurt or killed at the hands of a man. Things are way out of balance.

Yet, there is hope. Change is coming. Change is here, coming at us fast like a Tsunami. We cannot hold back this change, even if we wanted to. And Oya is here to stir up the winds of transformation. She is here to make space for us to come back into our power; men and women alike. She is here to show us that we must align with our Highest Good and our Highest potential in order to live our Soul purpose here on the Earth plane.

No more victim and aggressor. No more power struggles. No more battles; dominant vs submissive. This is a powerful yet delicate balance. We do not want to go the other way, taking more power than we need. We must become the circle; the yin and the yang; perfectly whole, equal to each other. No one higher, no one lower. No one struggling while another profits.

Oya has come to shake things up for us:

Ready or not.

Here we go.

Finally

Namaste

Deliverance

Published October 11, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Deliverance, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Deliverance: “The time of Deliverance is captured best in the image of a thunderstorm. As in nature, when there has been a long dry spell, and thunderheads are gathering on the horizon, the time for deliverance is at hand. Before a storm breaks, the accumulation of energy and tension can build to a point where it feels almost unbearable. Then, the sudden release of pent up energy in lightening and thunder delivers the earth from the oppressive conditions in the gusts of wind and cooling rains.

Awareness and grounding are especially needed at ta time like this, lest euphoria. The small, ordinary things of life still need careful and ongoing attention – and taking care of business is the best preventative medicine to ward off the let-down that can often follow such a high.

That is not to say it is inappropriate to rejoice or feel unburdened now – rather, enjoy and keep your feet on the ground. When a thunderstorm has passed, there is an uncommon freshness and sense of renewal in the air… and there is often a fair amount of debris on the ground that needs sorting through and cleaning up. It is vital now to identify and clear away any destructive thoughts or actions that might have created the heavy atmosphere that lead up to the storm. Taking time for reflection will strengthen your ability to learn from your actions and help you to gain the clarity not to repeat the same mistakes in the future. No matter what the sources of past tensions, it is now possible to observe them with less passion and greater equanimity. And it is from this detached perspective that you can best understand what steps you need to take to move forward.

A word of caution: ‘detachment’ is cool, free from emotional storms and drama, but it is not cold and unfeeling. In the aftermath of all the storms and interplay of energies, in life, it is always important to maintain a spirit of open-heartedness and compassion. Forgiveness is a healing force, and it is just as important to forgive ourselves as it is to forgive others. In fact, the two often go together. By letting go of the past and its turmoil, you will clear the ground for the lessons of Deliverance to take firm root in the soil and grow into a deeper and more profound liberation of the spirit.

If any hurts or misunderstandings remain unaddressed in the current situation, it is time to acknowledge them, do whatever is possible to heal the wounds or clear up the misunderstandings, and move on. There is a window of opportunity now to move quickly and decisively into a new order of things, and this is best accomplished with heartfelt gratitude for all the lessons learned.”

~ Ma Deva Padma

If you have recently gained perspective and walked away from a person, job or any situation which no longer served your highest good, congratulations for your courageousness. It is imperative however, that you look closely at the feelings associated with this particular person or situation. Is there any lingering hurt, negativity or resentment? Are any grudges being held against another person? Have you looked deep within to find compassion and forgiveness? It is time. This is how the healing will commence. This is the bridge to the next step in your journey.

Detach from the rawness and drama of the emotions associated with what is happening now, or has recently happened. Find a way to forgive both yourself and anyone else involved. Make peace with this situation and the outcome, even if it is uncomfortable now.

Focus on the healing process rather than the outcome, this is the deliverance you seek. Know that when you are loving, no matter what happened, and you see the lesson, you can set yourself free.

It is time to be truly free.

And so it is

Namaste
