Spiritual Service: “Self-doubt can be a habit that is hard to break. It can slow down your spiritual progress and the fulfillment of your life purpose. Ultimately, it will not stop you, but it can make your progress seem more challenging. It’s easier to fulfill your purpose when you acknowledge your own goodness and talent and do what you love to the best of your ability. Realize that you are enough, that your work is good and that you have something of value to offer. It is time to let go of fear of failure, concern about your ability and your right to live a happy and fulfilled life of success. The Universe believes in you.”

“You are being called to service beyond that which you have accomplished thus far. That is because you are ready, capable and willing to step up to another level of spiritual responsibility and freedom. Your mind, however, may question your ability. You may be afraid that you cannot perform well enough, that you are not skilled or experienced enough, that you are not as good as others or that you do not have enough value to offer. These are nothing more than wounded beliefs about your self worth. It is time to recognize this wounding and not empower these beliefs as truths anymore. Be kind to your mind. It will be happier without such beliefs. You can free yourself from the pain they cause and become more realistic about your gifts and your potential. Now it is time for you to trust love more than your wounds.

As you release these old beliefs, you create more space within you to receive impressions of how you can most joyfully serve the greater good. No longer hampered by undermining and draining beliefs in self-doubt you will have more energy to act on your intuition and guidance.

If at any time you find yourself blocked by fear or performance anxiety, it can be helpful to release these blocks by simply asking yourself how you could best serve the greater good at this time. The answer to this question will never be to shrink back in fear! It will always be to choose belief over doubt. It will be to move ahead. To take the opportunity offered to you as a vote of confidence form the Universe. This realization will bring you peace of mind so you can resume your progress and share what you have with the world.

If you have been working hard, taking the opportunities that have come to you and are still feeling as though you are not quite where you wish to be in terms of fulfilling your life purpose and divine destiny, you are now asked to acknowledge all that you have attained so far. Acknowledge all the people you have assisted in your own special way, all the positive influence of love that you have added to the collective human soul through your willingness to take your spiritual journey, open your heart and care about life on Earth. Your spiritual service has been noticed by the spiritual worlds, and you will be empowered to serve in increasingly beautiful ways. Your service is already successful and will only increase in potency, power and peace.”

Invocation: “Universe, I love you. How can I serve you? I accept love’s protection and love’s purpose in my heart, in my life. Love empowers and protects me, gives me purpose and passion, peace and play. I believe in love. I am love, and I believe in me! May the joy of helping others give me energy and courage to continue to serve and grow spiritually. May all beings receive your love and be healed through your grace. May all those who want to serve be empowered through mercy, compassion, joy and love to do so for the greatest good. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

The line that struck me most is “Trust love more than your wounds.” That is a powerful statement right there… and if you think about it, it really covers everything. Trust love more. Do not let your wounds lead the way. Remove the lens of past hurts and move forward, away from all that. Away from the past, away from the patterns, away from the pain.

Release the old. Create something new.

Do not be afraid of giving, of assisting, of shining your light in a world that very much needs it. It may feel dark and scary out there, but that is all the more reason to stand out, not to blend into the masses. You are needed. Remember why you are here. Remember who you are.

You have gifts unique to you. You have a vibration that can heal, uplift and create. You are a powerful lightworker and you are being asked to step forward and make a difference. It is time to step into your life purpose. We need you now.

Collectively, we are awakening… and we need to pull together all of our resources so that we can come together and be of Service. Eventually we might just realize the peril we are in if we continue on this path of destruction and chaos. We will realize that we are much more powerful than we have given ourselves credit for. We will turn away from the way things are being done, the way we are being controlled and we will rise up and make a difference.

A peaceful difference. A healing difference.

We will honour this beautiful planet we live on… and came here to help save. We will take care of each other. We will live sustainably. We will stop fighting and stop the heirarchy and the madness.

But for now, the first step is committing to our Spiritual Service. Putting our awakening first. Making changes daily. Taking charge of our reality.

The rest will follow.

And so it is that we change this world

Namaste

Fehu

Published January 7, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Fehu, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fehu, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Fehu: “The skills and gifts you have within you are your greatest treasure. They will never be stolen. Pay attention to the way you view the links between personal power and wealth. Prosperity needs to be developed over time – and then shared.”

“I am the way to wealth,
The power of having and moving,
The freedom of having enough,
With more to come.
I carry my treasure.
Within me is all.
I am Fehu.”

“Fehu (pronounced as ‘fay-who’) is one of the runes of the Elder Futark. It literally means ‘cattle’ and the symbol itself resembles the horns on cattle.

The Vikings, who travelled quite a bit, had to carry portable forms of wealth with them as they traded or explored. Their wealth, therefore, was not measured just in gold. Cattle and other livestock, for instance, represented a type of mobile wealth – wealth that was literally ‘on the hoof’, so this rune is an apt symbol for the idea of prosperity within the Viking paradigm.

The Vikings also relied upon the development of a variety of skills. Boat builders, carpenters, stone masons, weapon makers, hunters, weavers, story tellers, artists – whatever your skill, when you developed it with excellence, it was seen as a valuable treasure. You could take this portable form of prosperity with you wherever you went, and your craft, unlike gold or jewels, could never be stolen.”

Fehu as Challenger: “You do not know it all. More education or skill in a matter is needed. There may be a threat to your prosperity, so take heed. Although it is said that everyone has their price, you are being warned that not everyone can be bought. If you are thinking of taking a risk, be forewarned. Your luck with money has run out.”

Element: “Earth.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Discernment and keen judgment are key right now. You have all you need within you in order to succeed, but you must be very clear on what it is that you are creating. Do not give your power away to another. Do not be impulsive, and be sure you don’t get sucked in by ‘get rich quick schemes’ and do not compromise your integrity or your morals in order to please others.

Use your skills and talents. Do your research. Make a plan of action and stick to it. Make sure you know your end goal and stay the course for you are going to get where you need to go by trusting your own instincts and intuition. Do not let fear get in the way of your progress and success.

If you have an idea, keep it to yourself until you have fully developed it. Be very discerning when looking at who to trust with your passion, your ambition and your inspiration. There is no need to be paranoid! Just be smart. Know that what you set your mind to is absolutely possible for you, but that others may either side track you or try to make your ideas their own. Trust in your intuition and move slowly when you are involving others in your plan, knowing that you do not actually ‘need’ anyone else’s opinion or advice at this time.

This is your chance to create something big, something new and something very close to your heart. Trust that all you need you have access to, and that the Universe will support you all the way. Take your time to create something strong and stable, and then, when you are truly ready, you can share it with the world.

Namaste

The Faery Godmother

Published January 2, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Faery Godmother, from The Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Godmother, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Faery Godmother, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Faery Godmother: “Gifts, Talents, Grace, Helpful Lessons”

“One morning recently, I was having breakfast at the local cafe and my favorite waitress, Peggy, stopped by my table and asked what I was working on. I showed her my scribbled in copy of Good Faeries/Bad Faeries and explained that I was “choosing” the cards for an oracle deck. (Of course, the faeries were choosing them, but didn’t necessarily want to explain that to the whole cafe.) Peggy had been having a bad morning with difficult customers, and she had reached the stress point where she was dropping and spilling things, which only made matters worse. I encouraged her to pause for a bit, since the cafe wasn’t really busy, and take a look at the faery pictures. She thought she couldn’t, but I employed the Piper’s Wiles of friendly coaxing, and she took a little time out to look.

When Peggy got to the page of  The Faery Godmother, she stopped and smiled. ‘Oh yes!” she said. ‘She must be in the deck. Definitely she must.’ The longer Peggy looked at her, the bigger her smile grew, and the more insistent she was that I include Sairie in the deck. When she went back to work, I noticed that she still had a little smile on her face and her whole energy had changed. Things were not jumping out of her hands any longer, either.

This is how Sairie The Faery Godmother works. She gives us grace to help us along our way. It might be a little touch of Faery dust to lift a mood, it might be a conspicuous miracle, it might be anything in between. She protects us from the ill will and plain stupidity of others and from our own mistakes. She untangles the snarls in our psyches and bestows gifts upon us – whatever she feels we need. Sometimes she gives us choices when we thought we had none.

Grace is the good fortune we get from the universe even when we don’t deserve it. In fact, deserving or not deserving is not the issue. We are – and therefore, we are loved. It’s that simple. Sairie The Faery Godmother is a giver of grace, and occasionally (quite often, in fact) of useful lessons. She tries not to interfere with our learning processes, but she adds that little touch of faery grace that helps us to learn a little faster sometimes. Quite often she acts in our lives through the hands and hearts of others.

The Faery Godmother is the only one to wear a crown of stars, flowers, and branches, which says a lot about her. Luckily, each of us has a faery godmother to provide the extras that our guardian angels are often too busy to think about.

Faery godmothers in general are well known for their love of parties. Don’t forget to invite them to your festivities and special occasions.

The Faery Godmother glows through us as we perform loving and appropriate kindnesses for others and develop our capacity for unconditional love.”

Starter Reading: “Sairie offers last-minute rescues. When she turns up in our readings, good things may well be happening that we don’t think we deserve – or that we do deserve but haven’t thought to ask for. Almost imperceptibly she teaches us about giving and receiving unconditionally, helping us to open our hearts to love and acceptance. She sometimes showers us with abundance. Keep an eye out for unexpected good fortune, especially when you thought you had bad luck headed your way.

Remember to say thank you by passing a kindness on to someone else. Practice a little faery godmothering yourself and see how enjoyable it is. Part of the fun of it is to do it so that the recipient doesn’t know where the gift came from.”

As Challenger: “When we block The Faery Godmother from our daily lives, things are harder than they need be. When we attempt to live without the grace of the faeries and of heaven, life is an uphill struggle.

When we twist this energy, we become judgmental and get tied in knots trying to decide who is ‘worthy’ and who is not. We tie strings to everything we offer others – and then we trip over them.

At worst, we sour our lives, sharing nothing and taking from others – becoming the selfish, greedy thief in the night instead of the sparkling Faery Godmother, who glows with the light from within. No matter how much that thief accumulates, he will never have enough to feel happy or secure or loved.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth and Brian Froud

This is a message about magic, it is also a message about giving and receiving. Sometimes we feel we are stuck, or that we must compromise by accepting circumstances that are less than desirable. For whatever reason, we decide to lower the bar, give up on high expectations and aim lower. We give up on the magic in our lives, we don’t see our true potential. When this happens, we are actually blocking ourselves from receiving what is truly ours.

Worthiness is the bridge between receptivity and alignment to what we desire. Our self worth is what we need to work on in order to shift our perspective, to break down the barriers and to redefine who we are and what is possible for us. When we know we are worthy, we open doors we thought were shut to us. Perspective is everything.

Wherever you may have been struggling in your life before, look at your self worth in this area. If your relationships were less than balanced, if you are still attracting the wrong kind of partners, or none at all, look at how you view yourself. What are you putting out there? How are you measuring your value? How can you shift this and love yourself in the way that you would like to receive love from someone else? This is the way of the New, let go of all else.

You may find this in other areas of your life too, dealings with family, work place issues, or interactions with neighbors. How you view your self is ultimately what is reflected back to you. Work on yourself and find that inner love and see the world change around you. This is a brand new year and the options are endless, see them as so!

You are worth it!

With love

Namaste

Arcimboldo Mermaid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Arcimboldo Mermaid, from the Myths And Mermaids Oracle Card deck, by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto

Arcimboldo Mermaid:

“Alone we drift

Distractedly; a party

Drawn apart.

Together, we’re

Invincible: a living

Work of art.”

“At first glance, she is a pretty mermaid lass, gazing soulfully with her large pale eyes. A closer inspection reveals the myriad of fish and other ocean-dwellers that comprise her luxuriant tail, combining to create a living work of art.”

Divination: “Lately you have been experiencing feelings of self deprecation. Maybe you have been studying your figure with a dissatisfied eye or bemoaning the size of your feet. You need to stop the hypercritical analyzing before you sink any lower. You are so much more than a collection of parts! Other people do not look at you through the lens of a microscope and it is unhealthy to do so yourself. Concentrate instead on the beautiful person you are as a whole and treat yourself with love and affection.”

Antithesis (Challenger)~ Make Integrated Use of Your Gifts: “You have so many positive qualities, but lately you have been neglecting some of them. If you combine your talents and abilities, even if they do not seem connected, you will become a more dynamic person.”*

~ by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto

You cannot raise your consciousness if you cannot love and accept yourself, as you are. Or, maybe I should say, you will raise your consciousness the very moment that you do decide to Unconditionally Love and accept yourself as you are. Warts and all, as they say. And do not delay! There is so much more than waiting until…. until you lose enough weight, until you find the best anti aging cream, until you grow out your hair or get the surgery or find a flattering outfit.

We all have things we wish we could change about ourselves… why is that exactly? Is it because we are taught, from a very early age, that we should base our worthiness on our outward beauty? Is it because celebrities are worshipped like royalty and models are put on pedastals, setting a standard for physical beauty that many of us can’t possibly achieve… (and rightly so seeing that so many of them are photo shopped these days anyhow!)

You have unique gifts and talents that are meant to be shared with the world. These gifts are why you came here! You came to heal, to enlighten, to inspire. You came to share; to shine your light. Some of these gifts might be hidden deep inside, just waiting to be discovered, honed and revealed. It’s time to find your true life purpose, without letting any self-doubts, self criticism or fear to hold you back.

You are the living work of art; a true Divine masterpiece. A bright Light in the Universe.

Believe it with all that you are.

Namaste

The Hunter Of Gifts

The Hunter Of Gifts, from the Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Hunter Of Gifts, from the Shaman’s Oracle, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Message From The Hunter Of Gifts: “I am the The Hunter Of Gifts. I seek out the most valuable and vital things you need to enable you to live life to the fullest. I hunt through your thoughts, through your experiences and through your deepest feelings to discover the true gifts of your life, which can help you to find the right direction. Whatever gifts you are looking for, I will seek them for you. And I will teach you how to recognize the gifts you already possess. Follow where I lead, for I can help you to flourish in every way.”

The Hunter Of Gifts: “The gifts this hunter seeks are not just those of food, shelter or possessions. Rather they are the gifts of living; strength, health, vitality, as well as the bountiful gifts of the imagination, of creative flair, love and honour. In times of hardship the gift of perseverance is vital; in times of plenty the gift of wise stewardship is essential. The Hunter Of Gifts is attuned to our most urgent requirements, and senses how best to replenish us when we are lacking. Everything this hunter offers is a gift of life, be it joy, energy, truth or hope. In times of greatest need this figure will bring us what we require.”

Interpretations Of This Card: “Inner gifts ~ Recognizing our skills and values ~ The flowering of imagination ~ Discovering your potential ~ Finding your way ~ Valuing the truth ~ Using skills and talents”*

~by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

What does abundance mean to you? Does it mean releasing everyday worries, doubts and fears, knowing that your needs are met? Does it mean luxury; fancy cars, big houses and lots of designer shoes? Does it mean being fully supported, surrounded by loved ones and friends? Does it mean having new opportunities or unlimited possibility?

Or all of the above?

This is a message to aim higher! A very important reminder that worrying about the mundane is actually holding you back! Set your sights to the stars, decide to manifest miracles… have fun with your creative process. When you spend time wishing, wondering and hoping, you are focusing on the LACK of what you desire to create. You are focusing on the fact that it is not existing in your reality, which is not the vibration that is needed to attract it. Remember, like attracts like.

When you decide to use your vibrant imagination to paint a vivid picture of your amazing dreams and aspirations, that is when the magic happens. That is when you become the magnet to the higher vibration reality. That is when anything becomes possible.

The Hunter of Gifts has come to show you what you are actually capable of. You have gifts that will heal and inspire others and when you fully discover them, and use them for the highest good of all…

That is when the true miracles will happen.

Namaste

To The Sea

To The Sea, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

To The Sea, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: To The Sea, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

To The Sea

Essential Meaning: “Being in flow ~ Returning to Source ~ Recognizing how pieces fit together ~ A natural pattern of events.

The Oracle’s Message: “Isn’t it wonderful when you feel yourself in the flow of life, when events and conditions seem to engage you in a way that is fluid and effortless? This card reminds you that going with the flow is exactly what you need to do right now. Ride the wave of opportunity formed by perfect conditions. Allow trust and faith to guide you forward as you flow like a river into the sea of life.”

Relationship Message: “There are points in a relationship when you have to decide to go with the flow rather than dictate the course you share with another. Can you let go of the need to have things your way and allow the relationship itself – your combined goals and desires – to steer the ship? Can you both transcend your personalities and allow the partnership to form its own identity, its own energy? Now is the time to relax and see where this mutual journey leads.”

Prosperity Message: “Everything seems to work out when you stop scrambling and allow the sea of opportunities to wash over you and wake you up to your most prosperous potential. To get into that flow, you need to address your beliefs about abundance and money. The true meaning of your personal currency lies in your skills; your talents and abilities; and, most important, your core beliefs. Everything flows from your inner world and is reflected in the outer one. When, grateful to serve, you align your prosperity consciousness with a higher consciousness, you can expect miracles. Everything you need will come to you easily.”

Protection Message: “When external conditions appear to block every attempt to move forward, there is no hidden message for you to decipher. Like the ocean, the tides of experience ebb and flow. You are in a natural cycle, so know that things will flow again in due course. There is no cause for alarm. Stop resisting and fighting against the situation and learn to flow, even when the tide is going out. Relax and trust in the abundance that will soon be within your reach again. An ancient mariners’ saying applies to you now: “When fishermen cannot go to the sea, they stay home and repair their nets.”*

~by Colette Baron-Reid

You cannot hasten the flow, you can only go with it. This is a time of knowing that an integral part of manifestation is setting the intention, focusing the thoughts and emotions and then surrendering it to the Universe. There is a lot going on behind the veil right now; remember that everything starts in the unmanifest realm.

Take time to breathe deeply. Keep your vibration positive and uplifted by doing what you love. Try to catch up on sleep whenever you can. Make getting outside a priority, get some exercise and fresh air. Spend time with loved ones, pets, children and anyone who helps you to feel uplifted and happy. All of these will help you to balance your energies and further activate your powers of manifestation.

You cannot hasten the harvest, but you can nurture the crop.

Namaste

Confidence, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish

 

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Confidence, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish

Confidence: “Perhaps you are not aware of how great you really are. Maybe you have been doubting yourself or your purpose in life. Have you been questioning whether you are enough, good enough, able or worthy? IN some way you are in need of a confidence boost. And this is Spirit’s way of telling you that you are doing just fine. Spirit believes in you, and you need to believe in yourself too. It will take time and effort on your part, but the rewards of having self-confidence will be well worth it.

You may not do things perfectly; of course you will make mistakes. But mistakes are simply opportunities to learn how to do things differently. It is always easier to see the greatness in others. Seeing another person’s gifts, talents, abilities, and successes is much easier than seeing our own. This is a cosmic mirror from the Universe, and it is reflecting back to you, all of the incredible qualities that you really do have.

Sometimes we just have to fake it till we make it. And that is what you are being asked to do. Just try on the suit of confidence. Se how it fits and how it feels. You do have what it takes. You are just as gifted and wonderful as any other person. Now it is time for you to feel confident about you.

It is important to note though, this too much confidence or over-faking it can actually come across as arrogance. Heaven knows you are far from arrogant, so go gently with it. It is not about proving anything to yourself or others. It is about knowing that you are important in Spirit’s plan and that you are worthy. Who you are and what you have to offer is so very important. It is time for you to believe in You, the way Spirit believes in You.”*

– Cheryl Lee Harnish

There is so much pressure on us to strive for perfection. So much competition out there that we are constantly trying to keep up with. Perfect bodies, anti aging, perfectly clean houses, perfectly behaved children, nice cars and perfect vacations. It’s never ending. And when one or more of these doesn’t seem to match up to the strived-for perfection… we take it as a reflection on ourselves. We feel that we are not worthy if we can’t manage to keep all of these balls in the air to show the world that we are valuable. We think that we must try harder; or even worse we just give up and feel badly about our inability to live this perception of perfection.

It’s time to let all that go. Phew!

Breathe deeply and ground yourself by connecting to the Earth beneath your feet. Feel her heartbeat. Feel her Unconditional maternal love. Feel the magnetic pull towards the center of the planet, our beloved Mother Gaia; who nurtures us without judgment. Breathe in her love right through your feet and up into your heart chakra. Allow her energy to cleanse all these petty insecurities planted by a dismally disfunctional society. See her perfection reflected in your own. Feel the connection above and below. Know that you are an integral part of the Universe; a part of All That Is.

And know, in your heart of heart, that you being uniquely, beautifully and uncompromisingly You, will always be more than enough.

Then go out and help others see their innate value as well by being true to yourself.

Pure love and acceptance are the bridge….  the only way we can break free from this material insanity.

Namaste
