The Desert: “Sacred Archetypal Element Of Fire”

“In the desert, we are surrounded by sand and a fiery red sky, with sun pouring down on the ground and wavy energy rising into the air. This is not a mirage, but rather another dimension – the domain of fire. Many mystics have quested for answers to life’s deepest questions in that place of aridity, fire and heat, for it is a place of true transformation. The energy of fire is quick; it consumes everything in its path in the blink of an eye.

The energies of fire push us toward the death of the old and the struggle for new birth, for when we go out into the desert we realize how tenuous our hold is on life, and how easily and quickly we might perish. Yet it is in our willingness to die to the old and leap into the fires of transformation that we surrender the outcome and the future to wisdom tempering quality of fire: it burns away the dross, which includes everything except the essence of what needs to be carried forth. Out of the flaming heat, the scorching fires of transformation, true wisdom is born, rising up out of the desert pyre like a phoenix with brilliant multicolored feathers glinting in the relentless sun.

When you draw this card, it indicates that you are in a fiery process of death, rebirth, and transformation. Spend some time sitting before an open fire or in the sunlight. Light some candles, especially in the dark days of winter. As you meditate on the desert and fire, consider what no longer serves you and offer it to the fire. Ask the fire to embrace and guide you safely through your transformation. Fire can provide you with the courage to face whatever challenge is before you, and the energy and vitality to accomplish your goals with responsiveness, wit and passion.”*

Venus is back direct and things are going to heat up a little, it’s about time! Oh how I have missed our beautiful Goddess of Love energy. We were forced deep into the nether regions of our psyche to unearth all that old pain and trauma concerning relationships and self love that we has been holding us back. It’s been challenging, but oh so necessary for us to purge and clear all that old junk out. The future is not the past. We have learned our lessons and we have released them. We are finally ready to move forward fearlessly, giving and receiving love.

Are you ready?

Ok not to spoil the fun… but be aware that this is where we are headed, but there may be just a little residual energy to deal with before things get really juicy… sigh… just when we thought it was all passion and love…

So here we have the desert… and do not worry, the element of Fire will help us to burn away all the fear, all the doubt, all the excuses and anything and everything else that has been keeping us stuck for way too long. It was high time to clean house! Now take all that old clutter you don’t need anymore and offer it up to fire. Literally write it all down, light a candle, and burn it away (obviously being careful not to light yourself or anything else on fire while you are at it!)

You are the phoenix, rising up from the ashes. What will you create now? What will  you allow to come into  your life now? What else is possible?

Invite love and passion and sensuality.

Be love and passion and sensuality.

Ooh, is it getting hot in here or is it just me?

Namaste

The Crested Ibis

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Crested Ibis, from the Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

The Crested Ibis: “Sacred Archetypal Element of Air”

“The Crested Ibis, known to ancient Egyptians as the akh bird, is associated with the element of air, and with Thoth as he relates to the cosmic mysteries. The crested ibis is in essence the phoenix rising from the fire. It speaks not only of rebirth but also of the clear thinking that gives you the understanding of your journey. This beautiful bird is a powerful symbol of the ability to conceive of a resulting creation in advance of its actualization; it refers to the preconceived idea and the goal, both of which are contained in the mind.

The domain of the element of air includes communication, language, and articulation. It is through air that we speak words of power, and it is by making sound and music – toning, chanting, singing, speaking, laughing and breathing – that we express the element of air. Through our connection with air we find sound within ourselves and communicate directly from the throat. Asthetics, including beauty and pleasure, also exist in the domain of air.

When this card comes up in your reading, it is time to look at how you express yourself, especially in your communications with others. You have a valuable ally in the Sacred Crested Ibis. When you meditate on this card, you will feel your consciousness rise as you are uplifted to a higher perspective, from which you can see whatever situation or question you have brought in a new way. Use this perspective for clarity and ‘Thothfulness” in your thinking and in your speaking.

Drawing this card can also mean that it is time to lighten up. Air will assist you to experience and express wisdom with joy and a light heart so that you can appreciate the humor and playfulness available all around you.

Air is your ally. Breathe deeply. Free yourself. Experience awe; then express your gratitude with exuberance.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

The Ibis comes like the Phoenix; a sign of the transformation you are going through right now. Rising up out of the ashes, eyes focused on the stars. Freedom is yours at last.

This rebirth comes with a blank slate; one that you must paint with the colours of your thoughts and emotions; manifesting your new reality. This process gives you free license to reinvent who you are in the world using creative self-expression. This means taking off any masks you have become comfortable wearing; ones that you put in place over the lifetimes to protect you, to hide your true identity. Speak your truth clearly and unapologetically. Choose those you hold close to you with discernment. Incorporate mindfulness into every moment of every single day. Move through the world with absolute integrity. Let as much Light and Love into your Being as you possibly can; upgrading moment by moment, minute by minute, hour by hour.

Visualize yourself rising above the old and soaring up into the new. Feel that Lightness of Being. Know that this is your new reality, and that everything you have worked to release, that which no longer serves you, will fall away. Leaving you perfectly poised for your brand new life.

Namaste

Alchemy

Published April 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Alchemy, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Alchemy: “Once Starseed has experienced and understood the true significance of transition from one state of being to another, she or he explores the the alchemical process of transmutation, where by elements are combined to create new forms.

While the ancient alchemists were supposedly attempting to change lead to gold, their higher purpose was in transmuting the dense, physical body into the spiritual light body of the enlightened soul.

The Alchemy key employs the magical process of glass blowing, where by the four primary earth elements of air (the breath for the glass blower), water (dripped from above to cool the glass), fire (melting the glass), earth (the silicates that, melted, form glass) are are combined to create the new form: a beautiful blown glass sphere.

Let us not forget that the consciousness of the artist, the focused intent, is the primal ingredient or impetus in this process of transmutation.

The Alchemy key is rich in meanings and can be interpreted at many levels. On the one hand, it is about blending different elements, with patience and skill, to create a desired outcome or new form. On the other, it speaks of balancing aspects of our lives in order to move forward. For some, it is a key to spiritual healing, building from the previous key of death versus immortality and how we learn from our grief and fear when we embrace our own infinity.

Words associated with this key are chemistry, temperance, mixing, blending, combining, merging, experimentation, synthesis.

What elements can I bring together to create a new perspective? How do I balance various aspects to bring harmony into my life? What is the right blend of ingredients for the situation at hand? Do I have the patience to keep working until I find the solution? What is my vision for what I am trying to create, and how do I plan to achieve it? Do I have balance in my heart, soul, and mind?”*

~ By Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Again we are brought a message of Alchemy. Turning lead to gold. This is the process of ascension, releasing the old, dense, third dimensional reality and embracing the new, higher consciousness of the fifth dimensional Being. It’s all about perspective… shifting, molding, transforming our reality from the inside out.

There is a call to simplify our lives; get back to nature, reconnect on a personal level. Walk the Earth. Look into each other’s eyes. Limit technology. Meditate; Listen. Get back to the old ways. This is how we reconnect to our Great Mother Gaia. This is how we awaken and expand our consciousness. This is how we shake off the programming and reactivate who we really are. We align with our Soul Purpose, stepping off the hamster wheel and onto the journey of our lives.

Namaste

Letting Go

Letting Go, from the Guardian Angel Tarot Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Letting Go, from the Guardian Angel Tarot Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

Letting Go: “Releasing the past can seem like a challenge, but it can also be liberating. Your angels will help you let go so that you can fly higher than ever before. Endings always herald new beginnings. Choose to allow this situation to lead you to a more joyful life. Change your life by changing your thoughts!”

“It can be very liberating to leave the past behind. So often we hold on too long. We look backwards at the past when we should be looking at the present or planning for the future.

Your guardian angel brought this card to you today to say, “Let go, and I will walk with you and help you to spread your wings so that you may fly higher than ever before!” While this card often signals endings, it leads the way to new beginnings. It asks you to stop resisting the necessary change that will make you a more alive and fully vibrant human angel here on Earth. When experiences no longer serve your higher good, it is time to ‘leg go and let God.”

Additional Meaning For The Letting Go Card: “Change your thoughts and change your life. An anticipated ending. Transformation. Reincarnation. Resurrection. Freedom.”*

~ By Doreen Virtue, Ph.D and Radleigh Valentine

If you were not sure if yesterdays message was for you, here is your confirmation: Yesterdays message was for you.

I know it’s hard and I know it’s scary, believe me, I get it. Really, I do. I have had so much change in my life over the last year I can’t even keep track of it all. The dust is still settling. I do feel sorry for myself now and then, even though I just want to be spiritual and uplifted all the damn time! I get it!

But all in all, I know that things are going to get better, they already are. I know that there are amazing things manifesting for me as I type this, I can feel it with every ounce of my being. I also know that things take time because I had a lot of healing to do, and I am still doing it. Day by day it gets better. I get stronger. I feel more capable; less scared to death! I know that the Universe provides for me because I have very clear evidence of it every single day. And I try to be grateful for it every single day.

I had to take that first big, huge, scary step. And so can you. First it is a step away. The rest of the steps are towards something brand new. Once you get past that first on you are on your way. Even baby steps count.

Your thoughts are everything right now. Supercharged by your feelings and emotions. What you put out there is exactly what you will create.

Make it spectacular.

Namaste

Goals

Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals: “Dedication, Process”

“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life”
~ Greg Anderson

“In a larger metaphysical sense, our journey through life is said to be full of transformation from an imperfect, corruptible state towards a perfect, healthy and everlasting state. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Thus painful or difficult changes that we endure can in theory burnish us in a spiritual sense to a high, golden shine. We can also seek out knowledge, opportunity and challenge; it is not necessary to merely allow life to happen to us.

In this scene, an Alchemist serves as an analogy for striving to achieve an end goal through study, experimentation, dedication and perseverance. His facial markings trace the beginning and end points of his quest from base lead through its various stages of purification of the soul to gold. The symbol for gold appears in the center of his forehead, where the Third Eye chakra is perceived to be.

This card is a reminder to stay focused on the goal and to continually apply the required self-discipline. It will all be worth it in the end.”*

 ~ By Ciro Marchetti

Be mindful that there may be people or situations around you at this time that trigger you. They may trigger sadness, pain or fear; they may trigger worry or self-doubt. These are all coming up for a reason, they are little hurdles along your journey; challenges that you must learn to turn from lead to gold in order to move forward. When you are feeling triggered, suddenly stressed or frustrated or angry or sad, instead of stuffing it and putting on a mask, look at the situation with detachment and compassion. What did the person do or say to trigger you? Why are you allowing yourself to feel triggered by this? What other reactions are possible at this time? What lesson was learned from the past experience that holds the power to trigger you? How do you release yourself once and for all from the ties that have bound you to this lesson? Once you gain clarity you can find a way to bless, release and move forward.

This is a great time for journaling, getting it all out on paper can give you perspective and is a much more powerful tool than seeking advice or complaining to friends or loved ones. When we write it all out, we force ourselves to see the problem from all angles, and then we are also called to use our own deep wisdom to solve it. When we allow ourselves the time and space to do this, we can listen to our own heart’s to guide us, rather than being guided by someone else. We take control, and we heal ourselves.

Do not let yourself get off course, this is only a speed bump, and you are being challenged for a reason. When you solve this, and truly learn to let it go, you will never be triggered by it again. This is one step closer to your manifestation.

Stay the course on your quest, Spiritual Warrior.

Become the Alchemist.

Namaste

Osiris

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Osiris: “Regeneration ~ Transmutation ~ Beauty”

“Osiris is the enlightened ruler and husband of Isis who was murdered by his brother, Set. Through the love and magical practices of Isis, he was revived sufficiently to transmit to her the seed of Horus. He had previously fathered Anubis with Isis’s sister, Nephthys.

In Egyptian mystery teachings, all beings strive to awaken as Osiris. The purpose of scriptures such as the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which is actually the Book of Coming Forth by Day, is to guide souls through the transitions of death, as well as the transitions of the shamanic rites of passage through death and the Underworld.

Although Osiris has long been associated with death and called the Lord of the Underworld, it is more appropriate to acknowledge him here as the archetypal regenerative principle that transmutes outworn, deteriorating form into its renewed, shining manifestation of beauty. Osiris can be found in the primordial, watery deep, and in the river itself. He invites us to let go and rest upon his earthly green chest as he wraps his supportive arms around our bodies and turns us into that which we are in the process of becoming.

If you have chosen this card, you have been asked to enter deeply into the process of transmutation and regeneration. You are being given the opportunity to experience death of the old consciously and to embrace the beauty that is possible for each of us to experience as we are reborn into the next level of our potential.

Things are changing in your world, and it can be an exciting time. Regardless of what is happening around you, take time to be quiet, and listen for the whispers from Osiris that come from the deepest recesses of your being. He will speak to you of possibilities, potential, and beauty. Feel the stirrings of regeneration within you when you commune with him.”*

~ by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

It’s up to us whether we let change knock us down or lift us up. It can be terrifying, our fears reducing us to feeling like children, searching for help and advice with every step. Or we can gather our strength and decide to shift our perspective and embrace change with grace and ease, trusting in the Universe that everything will work for the highest good of all.

Surrender to the change and find peace in the moment. No matter how chaotic your world seems right now, take some time to be outside and breathe fresh air. Communicate with Mother Gaia, put your spine against a big, supportive tree. Ask for signs from your Animal Spirit Guides. Eke out a few minutes of silent contemplation or meditation every day. Incorporate yoga and deep breathing. These simple measures will help you to retain your balance and find your center not matter what is happening around you, it just might help you to stay sane in the eye of the storm.

Most importantly, release any and all old, limiting thought patterns and need to control.

Change is in the works and cannot be stopped. 

However, it can be calmly navigated.

Moment by moment.

Breath by breath.

Namaste

The Phoenix

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Phoenix, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Phoenix as both Ally and Challenger: “Resurrection ~ Surrender To Change”

“The Phoenix appears as your Ally to celebrate your journey and to ensure your ultimate success. This is true even if it appears that you have just passed through a metaphorical experience of death or are currently enduring a perception of failure in your life.

Death and rebirth are related when you enter the realm of the Phoenix. Seen in this light, nothing truly dies, but rather changes from one ending directly into new beginnings. The Phoenix is constantly reinventing itself and rises up whole and new and even more powerful with every death it experiences. This could signal an end of a relationship – or of a dynamic within one – or an end of a job, a project, or even a life.

Perhaps no failure is involved, but it is time for a complete overhaul of your circumstances. You may be tired of what you are doing, or you may know intuitively that it is time to move on and try something new. Whatever the case, a death of the old and a celebration of new life are called for! Whatever you do now will indeed be a successful endeavor,  for a rebirth is imminent!

When the Phoenix challenges you, it is really just a gentle reminder to let go and let what doesn’t work fall away. Maybe you are not allowing things to change because you are more comfortable with the familiar, even if you know that it’s not the best you could create for yourself.

Fear of change is a crippling experience, as it works against Nature itself. The task at hand is to allow for an ending, as it is timely and right that you do so for the highest good of all. In surrendering to the fundamental purposeful change, you will most definitely find yourself in better circumstances. The action needed is allowing. A rebirth is assured.” *

~By Colette Baron-Reid

Whatever is happening in your life right now is happening for a very important reason. Trust in the timing and please, do not struggle, Dear One, but feel our warm embrace, holding you safely as you transform from the old, and rise up from the ashes into the New. All is as it should be, receive this change with our full support, we are only a heartbeat away.

We cling on for dear life to that which seems safe and familiar, yet we are missing the miracles on offer through accepting new opportunity. Go ahead and close the door behind you, as there is absolutely no doubt what so ever that a new, brighter and much bigger door is just bursting to open up to you.

Trust.

Have Faith.

Take a deep breath and center yourself. You are standing in the doorway. You have been standing here for quite some while now; the energy is low here and there isn’t a lot of light…. it’s an in-between realm. Fear has held you here for a long time, but you are ready to move through the doorway now. Take a deep breath and a big step forward with your left foot. Feel the sunshine on your face and a warm breeze. Look back at the doorway and feel that it is a vacuum… you can feel the pull of it, that old familiar place of complacency; stagnancy; perceived security. Yet as you look, you can see how dark and dingy it is, more than you noticed before. There are cracks and cobwebs and dust; how did you not notice how dreary it was? You reach for the door knob and gently but very firmly close the door. And immediately, the doorway recedes, getting smaller, much less scary, almost insignificant. There is so much light around you now and you realize that it is coming from behind you, where a big, huge gate has opened up, warm white bright light spilling though. With a big, deep breath and a smile, you move forward towards this new gateway. With each step you take you feel lighter, calmer, more joyful.

Free at last.

To create your wildest dreams and deepest desires in this brand new, shiny, bright dimension.

And so it is.

Namaste
