Lord Shiva: “Transcendence”

“Rise up. Honour your inner force. Steps are being given. Dance with the universe.”

About Lord Shiva: “Shiva is one of India’s trinity of male god figures. He is depicted wearing a cobra around his neck, representing his capacity to take fear or the ego, surrounded by stars, showing his connection to the cosmos, and holding a trident, acknowledging the three aspects of divine masculine power in India: creator, preserver and destroyer. He is known as ‘the destroyer’ because of his warrior-like energy and ability to destroy fear. He is a facet of the divine father energy and offers paternal protection, support and guidance. He is also acknowledged as ‘the cosmic dancer’ because he helps coordinate the interaction between Earth and the cosmos. He has the capacity to help us move beyond the fear of failure and into clarity and connection.”

Extended Message From Lord Shiva: “Lord Shiva is with you right now to awaken your sense of connection to life itself. You are moving through a deep transition and things will be clearer from this point – you will know exactly what you need to do and where you need to be. This is a powerful time, as you will transcend the limitations that others have set for you. It is a time of innovation, ideas, stargazing, soul traveling and soul revealing. Shiva, the lord of dance, is here, with his sacred sound of OM, to lead the way.”

Perfect synchronicity here, and a reminder of the importance of the sacred sound of OM. Yesterday we were assisted by Lord Ganesha, today Lord Shiva joins us to lend a powerful hand. Again we are reminded to leave fear behind, leave limitations and become the creators of our own reality. This is all part of our true awakening.

What do you wish to create, from your heart center? That is where our most powerful manifestation capability lies. It is not in our minds as we are lead to believe; where we analyze and ponder all of our options, talking ourselves into and then out of pursuing our dreams. Instead it is through our deepest feelings, particularly when we create from the heart.

Love can create a new reality for you, particularly when you combine it with faith, trust and gratitude. When you decide you want to do what it takes to heal. When you can release the fear and doubt and move forward in a brand new way. It is possible, despite the news, despite the violence and the chaos. When we turn away from that and commit to creating something new we can finally move away from all of that which is so obviously not working.

It takes courage to do things differently. It takes commitment to not get sucked into the old fear. It takes strength of character to move past what has hurt you and focus instead on creating something brand new. Do all that. And see where it gets you.

Namaste

Dionysus: “Freedom”

The Myth: “Dionysus is the son of Zeus and the mortal Semele. While Semele was pregnant with Dionysus, Hera, disguised as an old woman, convinced Semele to make Zeus prove he was a god. Semele asked Zeus to swear an unbreakable oath to grant her a favor. He agreed, and was thus forced to reveal his true nature when she demanded it. Zeus appeared as a bolt of lightning, and its fire consumed Semele. Zeus saved Dionysus by sewing him into his thigh until it was time for him to be born, giving Dionysus two births.

Dionysus is the wise god of nature, vegetation, wine and music. He embodies the ecstasy and intoxication of unity and the dissolving of barriers. He is known as the liberator, freeing humankind from the chains of the mundane through music, wine, madness and ecstasy.

The Message: “Ecstasy is the transcendence of the ordinary state. It is an altered state of consciousness, a type of trance that moves us beyond our own self-awareness into a unified awareness. This state heightens our thought processes, intensifies our emotions, expands our spiritual awareness, and enhances our physical abilities. Dionysus instigates the trance that ushers us into his realm of ecstatic awareness.

Dionysus represents the freedom of the senses and the liberation of the civil and dutiful mind. His appearance in your cards signifies a deep connection to art, music and poetry and points you toward obtaining freedom through catharsis.

If your life has become overwhelmed by mundane routine, though and existence, Dionysus is here to shake you awake. This is the time for freeing your senses and finding your true voice, your dance. It is a time to break free from the rules of the civil world, to find your own way instead.

If you have drawn this card, liberation is at hand. the key to this liberation will come through deep catharsis – an intense, climactic, emotional experience that leaves you feeling renewed, revitalized, and reborn. The experience will smash the psychological barriers that bind you – the experience of religious or spiritual ecstasy, the total experience of unity with all that is, the ecstatic experience of god within and without.”*

Our society has a twisted sense of ecstasy. As soon as you hear the word, what do you think of? The drug? Illicit sex? Hedonism? It’s all gone sideways and our minds are so used to being in the gutter it’s hard to imagine another realm of reality.

Yet, what if the most pure form or ecstasy is found within our deep connection to the Divine? Is that not what the ancient Guru’s sought in the caves high in the Himalayan mountains? The ecstasy that could only be found when the ego mind was surpassed and our Souls reached out to touch Source energy itself? Ecstasy is not a quickie, it’s not a fast distraction away from responsibility. It can’t be found in a meaningless connection. Ecstasy is the greatest gift we are given; the ability to open ourselves up and receive Unconditional Love.

Ecstasy is stepping past the feeling of stagnancy and lethargy. It is being fully awake and fully aware, present, alive. It is feeling the beat of the music of life with your whole being and all of your senses. It is about throwing yourself into your life with passion and inspiration.

So how do we find it here? We find it through joy and lightness of Being. We find it in Love, both given and received. Not in empty physical connection, but true, heart centered loving sacred union; or through the strength of the bonds love that we feel for our family, pets and friends. We find it when we are passionate about a cause, when we truly step onto our Soul path and become of service. Through refusing to repeat a pattern ad nauseum in our lives, but learning and moving forward. It’s about releasing habits and limiting belief systems, taking risks and opening up to opportunity. It is about grasping life by the horns and riding it wildly, even if that is completely out of character!

Stir things up. Get sensual in your creative self-expression. Get out of your box and fly free for a while. You deserve it, and it will do you a world of good.

Namaste
