Daily Angel Oracle Card: Responsibility, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards

Responsibility: “Self-discipline ~ Empowerment ~ Reliability ~ Fulfillment”

Card Story: “Cradled in the palms of loving hands, a sprouting seed rises up through the soil into the light of day. within this seedling is the growing vision of a great fruitful plant or tree. There will come a time when the steward of this seed will need to plant it into the ground for it to spread its roots and grow in full form. There will come a time for this seed of life to give back all who have nurtured it along the way. But for now it is safe here, being protected, and honoured by the one who was given the responsibility to care for it.”

Card Message: “Responsibilities and self-discipline are vital in creating all the things we want in life, from a healthy body and mind, though to a successful career and happy relationships. This card is an invitation to smile at the opportunity to fulfill your responsibilities.

Sometimes responsibilities feel like a burden, as though they take away our freedom. But we actually need some responsibilities to give us structure in our lives. By having this structure in our lives we end up having more freedom rather than less.

If we avoid responsibilities we are unable to learn the basic lessons of discipline and organized focus required to achieve our goals. We may drift from one relationship, home or job to another, repeatedly ending up in situations we do not want to be in, but not knowing why we ended up there.

Once we take genuine responsibility for ourselves we realize that the power to change is always right here within us. We stop blaming other people and external sources and we become self-empowered. From this place we find the strength, dive and energy to make the choices necessary to truly fulfill our desires.

Next time you hear yourself ‘blame’ someone for something, stop and ask yourself how you can take responsibility and help the situation. If you are unhappy in your job or relationship, what can you do to change it? If you need more money, how can you take responsible action towards this today? Only you can be responsible for you!

On the other hand, if you are overly responsible for others you may disempower them by not allowing them to take responsibility for themselves. We each need to learn our own lessons in life. To acknowledge our strengths and to learn from our challenges. Know when you have played your part and when it is time to let the seed grow on its own.

By taking responsibility for ourselves and embracing our responsibilities in life, we build a foundation toward a successful and fulfilling life. We become powerful individuals rather than dependent ones. We claim a sense of strength, freedom and confidence that comes through discipline and self-mastery. From this place comes the realization that we can create anything we went to this lifetime!”*

~ By Caryn Sangster

The good news is that you are one hundred percent responsible for creating your reality. The bad news is, if you don’t like your current reality, only you can take responsibility and change it for the better. If you resist this concept, there may be a little work to do around it.

Yes there has been pain in your life and possibly it occurred when you were too young and vulnerable to do anything to change it. Or maybe you have suffered a loss or great tragedy. This is not about belittling anything you have been through or are going through. My heart goes out to those parts of yours that are shattered, I have been there too in my own way. We all have pain. I get what you might be thinking… how could you have created that? Why would you have anything to do with it? Well, on a Soul level, for whatever reason, you came into this life with a specific lesson that you wanted or needed to experience. It may just be the most challenging one of all. It may not make any sense to you on this level of consciousness. It may cause so much pain that you refuse to buy into that and that is completely up to you. But if there is a shred of belief in there and you are willing to open up to it then hear me out. It’s just a theory.

What if we came in to learn how to overcome the worst of what has happened to us. To find a way to move past it and find peace despite it? What if the ultimate challenge is to create beyond what has happened in the past, and find a way back to our true authentic selves. To learn to choose love no matter what. To refuse to get caught up in the victim consciousness that gets us stuck in a downward spiral of negativity. To find light where there is darkness and be a beacon for those who are also struggling. To step into your soul purpose and do what you are destined to do.

Maybe you are working hard doing all of this in your own life and your message is to step back from someone who is draining your energy by playing out their own victim consciousness. You can be supportive but you do not have to be drained; it’s ok to distance yourself a little. We all have lessons to learn, and we can’t step in and live someone else’s life for them, even if we wish we could. Everyone has their own journey. Everyone of us has our own individual circumstances, experiences and lessons. We can all support each other, love and accept each other during our darkest times, but we cannot rescue someone who is not willing to put in the effort to rescue themselves. We can only hold space for them while they heal themselves.

Namaste

Three Of Cups

Published March 25, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Cups, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Three Of Cups, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Three Of Cups: “There is a song that dwells at the ocean’s floor. It lurks in the chasms. It hides in the voices of whales and the squeals of dolphins. It haunts the reefs and caverns. And then, once in a great while, like an air bubble that has been gathering under the crust, it bursts forth in an unstoppable swell to rise towards the surface.

The sirens of the deep have been waiting for this moment. They come together when they feel the signal that trembles through the waves to all the corners of the sea. They sing. Their voices weave a counter melody and descant to the ocean’s song. Laughter rings in trills and glissandos that send ripples from their lips. That gleeful shudder of the waters summons the denizens of the sea, all the varied creatures among the ocean swells, to follow in the wake of the sirens.

The very movement of all the beings who swim through the waters is an elegant dance of undulations, a powerful slicing through the waves. The liquid dance of the sea bursts to the surface, and the song echoes to the vast vault of the heavens.

The Three Of Cups is a call to celebration, dancing, and singing. Friendship is its key component, and companionship, relying on others, and developing community and team spirit.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

The golden cups are full so right there is confirmation of abundance, of always having enough, of the Universe providing. But there is something deeper here to the meaning of abundance, something we talked about yesterday. There is connection, companionship, friendship, relationship, support and trust. There is sharing. Celebrating. Offering. Blue, the color of communication. Green, the color of the heart. Gold, the color of abundance. The mermaid’s tales woven together, creating sacred and safe space. Their eyes are open, honest and direct. They freely offer what they have, knowing that there is more where that came from. There is no lack here.

The mermaids are encapsulated in a bubble of protection, everyone in the group is safe to share their deepest secrets. Trust is given and respected. Everyone is equal, no one has more than another, and each is willing to share with the others to ensure this.

There is a hint at the stone Larimar here and it’s soothing creamy blue healing energy of the Divine Feminine and Goddess. It is the stone of the dolphin, the mermaids and the ocean herself. It is an opener of the throat chakra and assists us in communication with the higher elemental realms. If you have a piece of larimar, wear it, place it in your pocket or under your pillow to honour the Goddess energy within. Larimar will help you to strengthen your faith in your connection to others, drawing those to you who are in alignment with you now.

Namaste

Orpiment

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

The World ~ Culmination

Published January 22, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The World ~ Culmination, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The World ~ Culmination, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

The World ~ Culmination

Quick Read Message: “You need to attain a degree of understanding that enables you to graduate to a higher level and enjoy real success. This rare time of culmination must be identified and honored. As the old cycle ends, inappropriate habits must be left behind.
Outcome: “You will soon attain a degree of achievement and understanding that enables you to graduate to a higher level and enjoy rewards of a physical, mental and spiritual nature. Savor this time of culmination. You have earned it.”

The Dream: “The Earth, divine mother of us all, evolved from the stars and materialized into reality. On her naked body, we dance the dance of life just as she dances through the cosmos. We have assumed our place in her temple, the Earth we must return to in an everturning cycle. When you are aware of being in tune with the universe, you then know how everything has its own seasons, rhythms, and cycles. But in our dimentional world these things not only come around in full circle but are part of a spiral carrying us ever outward and upward in our evolution and growth. Our world, too, is evolving and growing, for on this journey we are united in the joy of movement. As we learn the limits of our small world and of our physical nature, we are reminded that we are caretakers of the Earth’s body as well  as our own. The Spiritual Journey is one of going within and finding our essential harmony with all that there is. When we attain the knowledge of who we really are, we gain The World.”

The Awakening: “By uniting and balancing your inner harmony with the skills you have learned in life, you can achieve real success. Hard work is demanded to attain this, but material rewards and inner peace can be yours. You must see your life in the context of the world before you gain the knowledge you seek.”

The Enchantment: “Form a circle with a group of friends. Hold hands. Slowly move in a clockwise direction, dancing and swaying to this chant: “Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. The World is dancing, dance for all.” Complete the circle twenty-two times. Close  your eyes. Visualize the Earth in the center of your circle, bathed in white light, receiving the love and the healing energy from your group. Know that we are all blessed caretakers of the World.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

The World card is one of endings and beginnings. Sometimes the cycle is so close, one blends right into the other seamlessly. And sometimes, there is such a huge difference between the two it can knock the wind right out of you.

The World is a graduation of sorts. A rite of passage has been accomplished and it is time to move on to the next level. All that you have been though, all that you have experienced and all the lessons learned have culminated into guidance for where you are about to go. Choose your direction wisely, for anything is possible for you at this time. Acknowledge lessons learned and use the knowledge wisely; avoiding repetitive patterns and habitual decisions.

Get out of your comfort zone. Stir up the energy by doing things differently, making new and courageous choices. Live a little… live a LOT!

Strive to gain a higher perspective; understanding the concept of being IN the world, but not OF it. Not wrapped up in the drama and the emotion, but sovereign in your power.

A beacon of light on this planet that needs it dearly now.

And so it is

Namaste

Seven Of Pentacles

Published January 5, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seven Of Pentacles, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Pentacles, from the Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot, by Melanie Marquis, artwork by Scott Murphy

Seven Of Pentacles

Card Description: “Waiting for efforts to bear fruit; the querent’s steady, careful work and patience is building up and they will soon see results; working toward a good future; patience is building up and they will soon see results; working towards a good future; patience is challenged but holding, success will be attained after delay; a long-awaited bounty is soon to come; waiting for an expected bit of money; a time of tending and nurturing; responsibility; a private plan or idea held dear; pouring your blood, sweat and tears into a project or person; taking good care of something precious.”

Seven Of Pentacles As Challenger: “An effort finally comes to fruition; a time of harvest; a neglected endeavour needs attention; a period of delay is ending; impatience impedes potential growth; opportunity; the wait is over; a failed harvest; plans and projects fail to pay off; not getting an equal return for the work one has put in.”

Magkical Uses: “Use in spells and rituals to represent the idea of bounty and harvest, the fruits of your labour and the treasures of your toil. Move the card quickly three times around in a small clockwise circle to speed along the harvest.” (**if you do not have the card, visualize yourself doing this exercise.)*

~ By Melanie Marquis

This is a message of patience paying off. Don’t let the ego mind get in the way of your success, wasting precious energies worrying and fretting that things aren’t going as planned. Things are coming together, even if you do not have the proof of it quite yet, remain committed to your cause. It is so easy for us to lose hope or to get distracted, spending energy focused on what could go wrong instead of what is going right. Take back your power by deciding that everything is going to work out exactly as it should and all you have to do is stay the course towards successful outcomes.

We are so much more powerful than we realize, individually and collectively. And yet we get so easily off track. We want the quick fix, we want things to fall into place and we get impatient if we feel we have done our share and the results are elusive. Then we enter the dangerous territory of compromise. We lower our standards, worrying that we may have set them too high. We look at others and feel like maybe what was supposed to be ours has been taken from us and given to someone else.

We need perspective and we need faith. We need to know with conviction that what we have been manifesting is absolutely possible for us, if we hold our intention to be for the Highest Good Of All. Maybe the Universe will tweak it a little. Maybe it’s taking a bit longer than expected. Maybe there have been curve balls along the way.

Have faith. And know that what you desire to manifest is on it’s way.

Namaste

Blessings

Published November 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Blessings, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Blessings, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Blessings: “You are divinely protected”

“Gahesha asks you to consider what exactly it is that you want at this time. He asserts that your desires are within your reach. The Universe is conspiring to help you achieve your aspirations. Since the Universe is in harmony with your desires, the “how” will transpire effortlessly.

Ganesha is bestowing on your blessings of luck, love and new prospects. Be very clear about your intentions at this time. Once you have identified what you desire, Ganesha will work to clear the obstacles and amp up your blessings. Withstand the temptation to succumb to self-indulgence. You are in an excellent affluence phase. This period will not last forever, so be sure to take advantage of it, and act when opportunities arise. Resolve will triumph. The principle of averages works in your favor now. The more that you perpetuate something that you want, the more likely you are to receive that very thing, even if it feels impossible. These manifestation possibilities are endless and range in subject matter; from love, to money, to success, to happiness.

Ganesha teaches that your blessings are continuous. The realization of the blessing may not be immediately apparent. Trust that happiness and blessings are always being showered on you. What is going on in your life at this moment is external and beyond your control. True happiness and blessings lie within you; in your heart and soul.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Oh wow, the synchronicity… how I love it when the messages all flow together so beautifully. Thank you to the angels, guides and ascended masters working with me to bring these words to you every day. I am so very grateful.

Blessings of luck, love and new prospects. Thank you Lord Ganesha; The Breaker Of Obstacles. Again we are reminded to use this blessing wisely. What do you wish to create? As Ganesha is telling us here, this is a particularly powerful time, the energies are strong, and truly anything is possible. If you allow it. Break through self imposed limiting belief systems. Release worries, doubts and fears. Know that you are in a phase of great blessing, and act accordingly!

Instead of resistance, practice gratitude. Be thankful for every opportunity that comes your way. See the blessings as they are presented to you. Open each one like a priceless gift. Honour yourself and your process, knowing that everything you have been through, all the hard work you have put in, has gotten you right here, where you needed to be.

See this as a turning point. A door opening into everything that you have been trying so hard to manifest. For you here there is love, prosperity and abundance. There is joy and peace and health and vitality. There is possibility and there is hope. There is a brand new perspective on life, which is one of the biggest gifts there is.

Embrace these blessings and move forward fearlessly. What you desire is just around the corner.

Have Faith

Namaste

Increase

Published October 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Increase, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

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

“Increase all that is good and true. Increase all that is nourishing and uplifting within yourself and for others. In a time of golden opportunity, anything less than abundantly sharing falls way too short of the mark. It has been said in so many ways, and is worth saying again here and now, that giving is far sweeter than receiving.

Today it seems to be increasingly rare to hear of acts of sincere and open generosity that have been undertaken without expectation of reward or recognition. Those delicious, random acts of kindness are not something we usually read about in the papers. Seldom are they ever mentioned on television. Instead, we are more likely to hear of those who have amassed fortunes and used that wealth to expand their buying power.

Nevertheless, when we do hear of some act of inexplicable generosity and caring, we pause, we are moved, and our lives somehow seem benefited by it. It does not make sense that some goodness that happens on the other side of the world should touch our own hearts, but it does. It seems to be a cosmic law that kindness freely given has a potential for expanding exponentially. It seems to go a long way towards healing ourselves and our planet.

Generosity is a simple affair, and the true benefits are primarily experienced within. They are revealed when spirit is unbounded, not constrained by greed or small-mindedness. Then giving becomes receiving, expanding and enriching our hearts. It is tragic to be shrunken and contracted; it is magic to experience inner richness and to spread it around without reservation. So much more is available when we come form a place of ‘plus’ rather than ‘minus’.

Take a walk somewhere in nature, preferably during the fullness of spring, in a place teeming with flowers. Consider how all that richness, that beauty and grandeur, is made available for all to enjoy whether they deserve it or not. Nature does not hold back; she is never miserly. Her times of increase are times that benefit all life, not just a chosen few. She is the ultimate benefactress. She grows flowers at our feet, brings rain to quench our thirst and songbirds to delight our ears, and paints the sky with so many start we are not able to count them. We humans reap the rewards of that abundance when we function from a willingness to share.

The time of Increase is a time to look to Nature for guidance, to learn from that abundant and generous source. Following in her footsteps, you will come to understand compassion, to experience serenity, and discover your own unlimited capacity to nurture yourself and others. By really taking her lessons to heart, you can’t help but be inspired to become the best you can be, and in turn to support others to grow to the fullest realization of their potential.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

I’ve always wished there was media that just told us all the great stuff going on in the world. I wonder how that would shift things. Everyone with hope and full hearts, hearing about things from a completely different perspective. They could cover the bad stuff, but from a different angle. Like this is the latest disaster, but here are the hero’s and here are all the great outcomes despite it. I think it would take some getting used to, as we would probably feel bad for not acknowledging the worst of the worst. We would have to get used to not focusing on the fear, the terror, the worst case scenario. We could avoid shame and guilt by acknowledging those hurt or traumatized or lost, but we would balance it with the positive. I wonder how that would look? I wonder how that could shift us? I wonder how it would motivate someone to desire to be on the front of Rolling Stone magazine for doing something awesome, instead of bombing a marathon.

It’s up to us to undertake it, one good deed at a time. To increase the vibration of the planet by having a positive influence on those around us. Those we come into contact with every day. Smiling makes a difference. Holding open a door. Being kind when behind the wheel is a good one… how about letting someone in instead of cutting someone off? Cultivating kindness and patience. Being generous with your time. Making eye contact. Listening to their story instead of talking over them with yours. So many little things to make such a humongous difference.

Do at least one today. Be mindful of it. Expect nothing in return, knowing that the ultimate reward would be that person doing something and continuing the chain of positivity.

Know that you can make a difference. But it has to start today.

Namaste

Dee
