Potential

Earthly Meaning: “All energy can be harnessed and used in myriad of ways. Just as elite athletes learn to use nervous energy to better their performance, it is up to you to draw on the energy stored in a negative experience to fuel your motivation, determination or creativity. Use whatever life sends you to your advantage. You can sit on the potential within you, or you can release it. It is your choice. This is not a matter of circumstance, ability or worthiness. Convert a possibility into reality.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Through grace and love, we continue to transform. Nothing we do is lost or forgotten. As we release our hidden potentials, we create our destiny. One day we shall become stars. Through this process, many future Earths shall be born where we can live as one in the arms of the Divine Mother. The ground you walk on, the rain that falls, her love is stored in everything.”

Insight: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It cannot appear from nowhere, nor can it disappear. All objects contain stored energy. This energy is measured in terms of its capacity or potential. Coal has the capacity to create heat. A stationary rock could roll downhill at a certain speed for a certain distance. The energy in running water has the potential to charge batteries. The potential is there, but the stored energy may sit dormant for millenia without ever being converted or utilized. This energy is neither negative or positive, but it can be used in any number of ways. Electricity can be used to hurt or return someone to life. There is potential in everything… in your memories, your hopes, your doubts, your strengths. How you use them is up to you.”

Again we are reminded that we may have a perceived loss, something that we though we wanted has been taken off the table. But maybe it is a redirection; maybe it is saving us from repeating old patterns of hurt or trauma that would waste our precious time and necessary growth. Maybe we need to see why things changed so rapidly, accept the lesson and move forward into something new.

How can you take what you have learned and turn it from a painful experience into an empowering one? How can you realign with your true potential? What is it about your dreams that may actually be holding you back from your life path? Are you waiting ‘until’ something or someone comes into your life to truly be happy? Are you feeling that you need someone else to fulfill you? Are you  holding yourself back because you believe you need to be a certain way before you can step into a new chapter?

Let all these belief systems go. You are exactly where you need to be. You are as powerful right now as you will ever be. Find this power and use it to create your highest Potential. It is waiting for you to discover yourself and claim it.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Reaction, From The Sacred Earth Oracle, by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams, artwork by Helena Nelson-Reed

Reaction

Earthly Meaning: “Denial, numbness, or misplacement have compounded unresolved emotions. An emotional reaction may have knocked things off-balance. Beneath the surface, things may have been off-balance for some time. Uncomfortable emotions are powerful signals. Respond with compassion, careful consideration and awareness. Limiting emotions restricts access to truth. The person who can only feel positive emotions does not recognize a villain. The person who only feels anger cannot accept love.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Observe your emotions and consider what they are signalling. To a large extent, how you react and respond to life depends on how you perceive it to be. Step away for a while. Clarity requires balance and detachment. Let love be the catalyst for an enlightened outcome. Accepting your emotional self leads to being calm, composed and blessed in every solution.”

Insight: “Water reacts to cold and heat by changing form. A seed reacts to the presence of water, oxygen and the right temperature by germinating. Plants react to light, vinegar reacts to baking soda and iron reacts to oxygen. Some reactions are instant, some are slow, but they are natural and predictable. Human reactions are much the same. Inhaling pepper will make you sneeze. Peeling onions will make you cry. A baby responds to hunger by crying. Being threatened will trigger a fight, flight or freeze response. Sadness, anger and fear are innate responses to emotional, mental or physical hurt. As children, we expressed those feelings as signals for help, love, comfort or nurture. The capacity to interpret our emotional reactions with awareness is a distinctly human trait. Not responding to your world is not possible. Expecting to manage, control or deny innate reactions out of existence is like continuously turning up the heat and being surprised when the water boils.”*

Things may not be going as planned. You may have come up against an unexpected block, challenge or obstacle in your journey. What this actually is, is your own unresolved emotions coming back to haunt you.

If you have been too compromising, given too much of yourself or been too lenient with your boundaries, you may be experiencing some regret, frustration or discontent. It is uncomfortable putting boundaries in place after the fact. After they have been pushed past too many times. After you have let them down too far… or not put any in place what so ever…

But this is an important lesson in self-worth. It is proving to you that you are worth your boundaries. That your emotions are important and that they are telling you something about yourself. That you may or may not be admitting to yourself. Boundaries are very important, and you have been too lenient with them. You deserve the respect that comes from implementing them.

Where do you need boundaries in your life right now? In your personal, intimate or family relationships? In your workplace? In your neighbourhood? You will know what resonates. It is time to take charge and put them in place. And remember, it is ok to be firm, using compassion and respect.

Namaste

Integration

Published January 7, 2019 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Integration, from the Sacred Geometry Activations Oracle, by Lon

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Integration, from the Sacred Geometry Activations Oracle, by Lon

Integration: “The frequency of Integration supports our embrace of every aspect of ourselves, allowing what we perceive as positive and what we perceive as negative to harmonize in a balanced symphony of life.”

“The Sri Yantra is an ancient symbol that literally means ‘Sacred Instrument.’ It is formed by nine interlocking triangles that form forty-three smaller triangles in a grid that represents the entire cosmos. This complicated and precise geometry is thought to hold and create powerful energetic patterns, and has been used for thousands of years as a tool for meditation and devotion. The Sri Yantra also symbolizes the union between the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, where the upward triangles represents the male (Shiva) energies and the downward the female (Shakti) energies. The center point (bindu) represents the junction between the physical universe and the Source.

The dark blues refer to the vast and deep Universe as the origin from which everything springs into being. The yellows and golds refer to our inner power and the way we express ourselves on this Earth in a physical body. Red is the color associated with the first Chakra, the physical plane, and everything form based. The light blue triangles represent the balance between the masculine and the feminine. And the swirling circles in the background are the other dimensions and star systems beyond this Earth that are at our origin.

The energy of Integration supports our journey through a dualistic reality in which we continuously search for union and completion, both within and without. Its frequency reminds us that our manifested world can only be when every aspect has its opposite as well. Only when we integrate everything that comes to us – when we embrace every aspect of ourselves and of everyone and everything around us – can we find an inner state of equilibrium.”

Try This: “Take a deep breath and close your eyes for a moment. How do you integrate your inner world with your outer world? Does one reflect the other harmoniously or do you need to invest some loving care in some areas? Do you spend time contemplating your daily life and exploring how it is connected to your thoughts and your emotions?”

~ By Lon

Today the energies are shifting as Venus leaves Scorpio (where it’s been since Sept 10th, making things pretty intense) and enters the expansive, jovial and carefree sign of Sagittarius. This means that you may literally feel things lighten up, particularly as far as personal interactions and relationships are concerned. You will feel more optimistic than usual and this is a great time to create change by starting a new class, making necessary dietary changes, adding some exercise and generally acting on something that you have been pondering for far too long. 

The Sri Yantra symbolizes the balance between Divine Masculine as it meets Divine Feminine. Sacred Geometry has power, even when you gaze at this symbol, it is triggering necessary change deep within you. Take a moment to look into the center of the image above and let it do it’s magic. See the triangles coming together; see the light at the center; see the colours of creative energies merging together, the oranges, the reds and the yellows. Sacred Geometry activates our true potential, gives us a boost where we need it most.

This is a special blessing, particularly today when we have the chance to raise our frequency and experience a higher awareness brought about through the offering of more joy and light. Open up to receive this blessing and see it manifest in your outer world.

Namaste

Time

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Time, from the Sacred Earth Oracle card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno, Leela J. Williams, and Helena Nelson-Reed. Published by Blue Angel

Time

Earthly Meaning: “Bitterness or frustration over plans gone awry.. Feeling it is too late, that you have missed out or that things are not happening quickly enough. Comparisons lead to a sense of failure or lack of joy. Pining for youth or lamenting time lost through unwise choices. Set a priority or release yourself from anxiety by weighing up what will really matter in a week, a year or a decade.”

Spiritual Meaning: “Feelings, memories and emotions rise and fall in the ocean of your heart. Like flotasm, they are surrendered to the shores of consciousness. A space clears and fills with light. The ocean in your heart is but a drop in the waters of creation, beyond the boundaries of time and space. Immersed, weightless… let it go; be free.”

Insight: “Our beautiful planet is timeless. Earth does not know what day or millennium it is. The calendar we follow means nothing to her. The calendar you follow is but one way of capturing the passing of time. It is a construction – a filter through which we perceive our age or measure our progress through life. The sunrise does not wait for an alarm to ring. Life is not measured by ticks and tocks. How old would you be if you did not know your age? If there was no such thing as too early, too late or one day, would it change how you see yourself? There are not expectations of where you should be right now… no milestones, no losing, no winning any race. Time cannot impede the turning of the tide, the changing of a season, or the birthing of a star. Outside of time, this moment is forever – forever is now. The illusion is lost. Be whole, be present, be timeless.”*

~ By Toni Carmine Salerno, Leela J. Williams, and Helena Nelson-Reed

There is so much pressure on us to remain youthful no matter our age or life experience. Youth is valued above all else, even above material possessions. Many cultures have revered their elders, putting them in a place of authority and respect, taking care of them, learning from their ways. But in the modern world beauty rules. Many of us have based our self worth on whether we are still found attractive; whether we have retained our youthful appearance.

And it’s time to move past that old, outmoded, patriarchal way of thinking. It’s time to move inwards, release all those old regrets and perceived losses or setbacks and move forward regardless of what we have been through.

I love the old saying “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” And if we were to truly live our lives by this, how would they change? Would we decide to break out of old ruts and routines? Would we say goodbye to past pain and trauma that we have been holding on to for far too long? Would we decide to take a few chances, create something brand new?

In each moment we have the choice to create more of the same or something completely different. In each moment we have the opportunity to raise our frequency and attract what brings us joy, abundance, health, peace or whatever our hearts most desire. It is up to us to manifest our reality around us, breath by breath, thought by thought and feeling by feeling. No regrets.

And so it is

Namaste

Embrace

Embrace, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Embrace, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Embrace, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Embrace: “A new opportunity is coming your way, but in order grasp it you must love, accept and embrace the many aspects of your personality.

You can do this by listing all the things you like about you and then listing all the thing you do not like. These are usually the things you try to hide from others, feel uncomfortable about or are ashamed of. List everything, good or bad, that you think describes you. Look carefully at the list of things you do not like. Now find at least two positives for every negative thing you listed. In reality, there are much more than just a couple, but two will do for now. Then go through the qualities in your original list of positives and find at least two negatives for each positive. With practice, you will come to realize that every positive has negatives attached to it and vice versa. Every quality you possess serves a valuable purpose in your life. Accepting and loving the negatives and positives equally leads to wholeness and balance and through this you are better able to see and grasp the opportunities that life constantly presents.”*

~ By Toni Carmine Salerno

There is an opportunity coming to you and it has love written all over it. Do not worry if you are already married or in a relationship, this can also be a huge shift in existing love. And it all starts with you. You seeing your own value, you seeing yourself as worthy of love, deserving of love and a magnet to love. You seeing yourself as Love incarnate.

When we shift the way we see ourselves, everything outside of us shifts too. It could mean letting go of something or someone that no longer resonates with you, to make space for something new, or it could mean attracting what you have been wishing to manifest for some time now. Keep in mind that this is also about receiving what you have been asking for, even if it looks a little different than what you had in mind. Trust and surrender are key. Know that the Universe has your back, that you will be sent who you need when you need them, and that when you do the inner work first, you will attract loving and supportive people instead of those who appear to teach you the same lessons over and over again.

This is where the list mentioned in the card description comes in handy. When you own up to all of your qualities, those you perceive as positive and those you perceive as negative or shadow aspects, you can really take responsibility for what you are creating and have created in your life. Where do your strengths lie? What do you see as your weaknesses? Can you see the lessons learned that are linked to these various aspects, for better or for worse? When you can see these lessons objectively you have the power to release them and move forward with forgiveness, gratitude and courage.

See the embrace in the card image and know that this will manifest in your life. As the love you seek. As the connection you have, strengthened. As deep Soul and Divine connection. For they are all One.

Namaste

Message From Afar

Message From Afar, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Message From Afar, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Message From Afar, from the Universal Love Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Message From Afar: “Have the courage to live your dream. Let all unfold from within your soul. Listen to your inner voice. Be yourself. Do what your heart asks of you. Live, speak and breathe your truth. Every situation you find yourself in is here to help you to grow in love and wisdom. Always make the most of life. Focus on what you have, not on what you do not. Be grateful. Show compassion for those less fortunate than you. Smile more often. Dance when no one is watching. Think about eternity. Think about heaven. Remember to smell the roses, to look up at the sky, to feel the earth beneath you and the endless universe that surrounds you and the stars above you. Feel the breeze, the trees and the love that fills and surrounds you. You are loved unconditionally – no matter what. Think about a thousand years from now and a million years from now.”*

This message has more than one meaning… but they are all interwoven together to signify a very auspicious time. A message is coming for you and it contains some wonderful news! Yet it may not be an email, voicemail or  letter…  and it may just come from an unexpected source. It may come in a dream. It may come as Divine guidance from one of your angels or guides; or even from one of your animals Spirit guides. It could come in the form of a sign… a feather, a rainbow or a blue butterfly. Whatever it is, it will hold very special significance just for you, and it will be so obvious, and so clear, that you will not be able to ignore it! And really, why would you ever want to!!! Remember, there are no coincidences, only perfect, Divine, Synchronicity. Do don’t doubt the sign or message when it comes, but embrace it with an open heart and open mind. Feelings of positive expectation, excitement and gratitude will expedite the process!

This message could lead to an unexpected windfall, gift, stream of income or other form of prosperity. It could be someone paying you back when you thought that they wouldn’t; it could be a winning from a game or lottery; it could be a bonus acknowledging all your hard work; a gift or inheritance from a relative or friend; or someone accepting the bid that you just put in on a job. Whatever it is, it will help you financially and increase your success. It will help you to feel more security, and more confidence  in your capabilities. And it will inspire you and motivate you to trust even more in the Universe!

This message also hints at new love, passion, personal confidence and vitality. It is encouraging you to be bold and beautiful and true to you. Know that you are a magnet right now, and put out what you wish to get in return, even if you cannot see the end result, even if it feels uncomfortable. Get out there and be the very best YOU and have fun doing it. You just never know what could happen when you really put yourself out there. Endless possibilities abound.

Know that you are more than worthy of this message, and know that there is more than enough to go around.

More than enough love and more than enough prosperity, abundance, and joy.

Fill your cup to the top.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle card: Family, from the Magdalene Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

Family: “You were born into your family for a reason and a purpose, just as there is reason and a purpose for experiencing all you have experienced to date. Yet, like most of us, you probably believe the myth that all family members should all get along and always be nice to each other. Other families always seem nicer. The truth is that every family experiences similar dynamics in one way of another. Your family is your greatest teacher. every family member will hold at east one trait that you do not like, This fact sets the perfect environment for us to learn to love unconditionally. Later in life you will discover that every perceived negative comes with a positive attached to it. True love often comes with a positive in ways and forms that we initially fail to recognize. Yet with the passing of time you will realize that beneath our individual facades there is only love. Love comes in many forms and it may not always be kind. Reflect on this for it will help you let go of any resentment you have towards your family or a family member. “*

– Toni Carmine Salerno

There is a famous saying that “we can’t pick our relatives” but yet, is this really true? What if we do choose them on a Soul level; before we even come to this physical plane of existence? What if we have made agreements with them, Soul contracts? What if, as they are our biggest teachers; we are also theirs? Then it would seem that the more challenge present, the more profound the lesson. There will be those who come to teach, and those who come to learn, and those who just come to love. Receive all they have to offer, learn the lessons, see the challenges, release when necessary and embrace the love.

There may be lessons of unconditional love, of self-worth, acceptance, or of trusting in one’s own capabilities for both sides. These can come in varying forms of challenges which must be conquered in order to progress to the next level of consciousness. If we can separate ourselves from the drama, we can uncover the lesson. Then we can incorporate gratitude and forgiveness on a Soul level, allowing both parties to move forward, releasing resentment and anger that may have been holding us back. Sometimes there is a pattern in the way that we are treated by others. This is because we aren’t valuing ourselves enough to accept the lesson! When we see patterns emerge, with us as the consistent factor, we know that something is going on that creates this need for reinforcing the lesson. If ever we find ourselves in a new relationship only to relive the old pattern with a completely different partner, we must look closely at what is being presented to us. We have the power to break the cycle, but in order to do so, the cycle must first be acknowledged and accepted.

Look closely at your most intimate and family relationships. What is the lesson? Are you receptive to acknowledging this lesson? And are you ready to release it? Look deeply within yourself to find the courage to receive it with gratitude and acceptance. Then move forward into something new within, knowing that it will change everything. Those who are willing to meet you here are the ones who will stick around, grow and evolve with you instead of trying to hold you back. These are the people you should watch for, open up and receive what they are offering you.

As Venus is almost direct, and you are so close to completing your journey to the underworld, set yourself free from all those old limitations and open up to something new. Create your tribe, create your family with the loving and supporting beings and be honoured that they chose you. There are important people coming into your life right now. Open up and align with them as you co-create a new reality, stepping out of the old patterns and into something brand new.

Namaste
