Self-Esteem

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

Self-Esteem: “Confidence, Self-love, Self-worth, Pride.”

“You are worthy. You are unique and powerful. Let the Sun that you are shine through your actions and your being today.”

Card Story: “In the center of a sunflower field, a woman rises with natural confidence into the day. Her feet are stable and grounded. She knows where she came from. She is connected to her Source. The sun is at her back and shines so warmly upon her that it seems to come through her… as her. She openly expresses her uniqueness, with a sense of inner freedom that comes from knowing and delighting in who she is.”

Card Message: “It is time to rise up and fully embrace the unique individual you came here to be. Follow your inner voice and feel great about being who you are – expressing yourself in simple, authentic ways.

If we always seek to please others or ‘fit in’, our confidence and self-esteem will always rely upon their approval. It is time to take back your deep inner power and claim a sense of confidence in simply being you. Acknowledge your very best qualities, take pride in how you present yourself and learn to love your ‘imperfections’ as essential aspects of what make you the uniquely Divine individual that you are.

This card is an invitation to discover who you are and the power within your true self. Immerse yourself in activities that increase your self-awareness and confidence. Take up a hobby or learn a new skill. Spend time among friends who see you in your highest light. Spend time in nature alone. Take fun risks, audition for a play, write a song, get your hair cut. Write down what you are grateful for, what you are good at and what you love about yourself. Spend time daily doing things that wake you up to the YOU that you really are deep inside.

In a basic sense, we can build our self-esteem in simple ways by eating more nutritious foods, by exercising in ways that make us feel alive and by honouring our need for rest and rejuvenation. As we expand our energy and nourish ourselves we naturally enhance the vibration and outward expression of our being. We find ourselves feeling more alive, more connected and more excited to be exactly who we are.

Let your self-confidence shine like an inner sun today. Take the risk to be and express who you really are, and watch the world around you celebrate!”*

This is one of the most challenging things we face in our lifetimes. Being truly happy with who we are; where we are at; in the body that we are in. Particularly for females but I know it affects males too. Finding our place in the Universe. Believing in ourselves and seeing our gifts, talents, strengths and weaknesses and loving ourselves not despite of them, but because of them all. Complete acceptance.

It’s ok to be a work in progress. But it is not ok to put your life on hold until…. until that special someone comes to rescue you and give you the love and approval you feel you need in order to be accepted… until you lose weight; have a certain job or amount of money or material object; or until you fit into a certain group or social circle. Or until whatever really.

We put our lives on hold thinking that we should put the “until” in front of the happiness. But we’ve got it all backwards. Be happy first. Despite it all. Acknowledge where you are at and how you got there and then know you have the power to change it all. Accept full responsibility for the creation of it all. And the absolute truth that you are also responsible for the creation of something different or better or brand new.

No more sitting around waiting for things to happen. Waiting for the body to co-operate. Waiting for the finances to increase. Waiting for Mr Right to show up at the door. (dammit… you mean Thor is not going to show up in my living room?) Ok… well do leave some wiggle room for Miracles and blessings and surprises of course.

But be happy anyway. Love the you that you have created and love what comes next.

That’s where your power lies.

Namaste

Crocoite

Published November 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Crocoite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Crocoite, from the Crystal Reading Cards, by Rachelle Charman

Crocoite: “Sexuality”

Crystal Colour: “Vibrant Orange”
Related Chakra: “Sacral”

Crystal Medicine: “Crocoite is a powerful and dynamic crystal only found in Tasmania, Australia. It is one of a kind and its medicine deeply resonates with vibrations of life-force energy. It works closely with the fire element, assisting in burning away any blockages that stop you truly living in the creative flow of universal energy. It is one of a kind and its medicine deeply resonates with vibrations of life-force energy. It works closely with the fire element, assisting in burning away any blockages that stop you truly living in the creative flow of universal energy. It deeply assists the transformation of any issue related to sexuality and activates the Kundalini life-force energy in the body.”

Crystal Meaning:

“~Activates the Kundalini energy
~Invokes deep sexual and life-force energy
~Deepens connection to sensuality
~Enhances Tantric Union
~Assists in expressing creativity”

Oracle Reading Message From The Crystal Deva: “This powerful card indicates it is time to open up to the powerful life-force energy of the cosmos and to your own sexuality. The universal creative energy flows through you deeply at all times and is a natural part of life. It is now time to heal any wounds and is a natural part of life. It is now time to heal any wounds around sexuality and come back into your power, working with this energy consciously in your life. Your sexual energy is your creative energy – opening up to this dynamic essence can transform your world. The devas emphasize that your sexuality is a sacred and integral part of who  you are. Work with them as you open and heal old perceptions, wounds, and even judgments you have made around sex. Once you release negative beliefs and restrictions and allow yourself to break free of social constraints, you will set yourself free. The devas urge you to honor yourself as a divine and sacred sexual being. If you are uncomfortable or feel you have wounds about sexuality, seek the support and guidance of a professional who can assist your healing process and allow this part of you to heal, grow, and express itself. You are also guided to work closely with the magical medicine of Crocoite to support your awakening to the life-force energy of the cosmos. It is time to set yourself free and dance in the sexual creative energy of the Universe in a positive light.”*

With all the trauma bubbling up to the surface right now, it is not surprising that this message comes to us. This is a time of transparency and it is a time of deep emotional healing. It is the end of an era, and the beginning of something much more honest. It will be the celebration of equality that replaces the hierarchy of fear and domination.

One day objectification will be looked upon as atrocious; just as sexual assault is now. Finally. One day people will be loved and accepted for who they are, not chased and tormented as something to be owned. Those who attempt to use their power to intimidate will be left alone, isolated, ostracized; unable to bully, coerce or force themselves on others. One day.

One day we will stand up for ourselves and say that enough is enough and we quite literally won’t take it anymore. One day. That day is not so far, it is within reach.

But until that day comes, we will heal ourselves from the inside out. We will hear each others stories. We will honour each others pain. We will hold space for each others progress from the deep dark mud of it all into the light. No story will remain untold. No agressor will remain innocent and no victim will go unheard.

And then we can bloom again. Bigger and bolder and brighter than ever before. We can create something brand new. We can manifest a whole new way of being in this crazy world and transform it as we do so.

Supporting each other as we reach for the stars.

Namaste

The Sun

The Sun, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Sun, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

“In a flare of liquid gold that pours across the sky, the sun rises. It is the brilliant star of day, banishing the thin and wispy light of his night bound siblings in the rich glow of dawn.

The King of Birds emerges from his slumbering roost as the morning mist rises in hazy waves from the dew dampened ground. His feathers gleam iridescent under dawn’s rosy palette of warmth tinged light. His companion mounts and together they set wing across the lands of their domain. They glide across the valleys, hearing the songs rise from workers in the fields. They soar up high and taunt the mountaintops with an elusive brush of wingtips across the upper peaks.

The denizens of the day trial in an entourage of avian delight. They pour across the sky, trailing after the sun in the arc of its journey to the western horizon.

From fallow field and verdant vale,
from sun=bleached shores with diamond grains,
and moonlit trails that trek like veins
through mountain, river, past the end
where sky is but a ghostly veil
that to Beyond transcends…

I summon all the winged kin
from this horizon to the bounds
of what is dreampt and all surrounds!
The voices of forbidden songs
will spiral through and center in
to fall where they belong!”

Meaning Of The Card: “Enlightenment and understanding, glory, achieving prominence. The constant renewal of life, vitality, filled with radiant joy and energy, invigoration, and good health. being full of assurance and confidence, a clarity of vision and purpose lit by the clear daylight. From the times of ancient civilizations up to the present, the sun has always been a symbol of life and growth. It has been embodied in vibrant gods and goddesses in cultures throughout the ages – young and glorious and brilliant, full of vigor and blazing splendor. The strength and power of the gods pours forth in the nourishing glow of the sun.”*

OOOh all those birds and each with a different medicine to offer. Wisdom, healing, mystery, purity; and they are all leaving us with the gift of their feathers, a sure sign that they wish to work with us. Notice that the hummingbird sits on his arm, signalling joy and a lightness of Being. Be very aware of the birds who come into your reality today, whether alive and flying in of their own accord, photos, articles, songs or otherwise. Be sure to take note of the species and look up the meaning or animal totem. There will be a very special message for you today. Watch for feathers too!

Finally we have the sun… more than a light a the end of the tunnel. This is about life force, vitality and strength. New beginnings, fresh starts, warmth and life affirming energy. Bring it on! We so need it. This is not the energy of the scorching summer sun, but a message of the gift of the energy of Light itself which we cannot live without.

The angel signifies health and healing, courage and confidence, and the divine light within us all. It is a reminder that we each hold within us the divine spark of Light which can illuminate even the most dense, dark and hopeless of energies. It is the light of hope.

Find a moment today to turn your face towards the sun, no matter the weather and give thanks. Know that there is opportunity coming. A new month full of possibility. The last quarter of the year. What else is possible? How can it get any better than this?

The Desert

Published April 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Desert, from the Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf, Illustrated by Kris Waldherr

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

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.”*

~ By Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

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

Sanctuary

Published March 23, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Sanctuary, from the Sacred Geometry For the Visionary Path Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Sanctuary, from the Sacred Geometry For the Visionary Path Oracle Card deck, by Francene Hart

Sanctuary: “Refuge and Renewal”

“This green cathedral is offered as a sacred space and refuge from the world for a time. It evokes the energy of deep connection with nature and represents a place of rest and renewal. DNA spirals connect the peace dove above with the place of heart that dwells within every one of us. The double helix of our DNA spins a remembering of our divinity and accelerates our participation in conscious evolution.

You have much to do upon the Earth. Realize that however in tune you are with evolving purpose, however fast you are shifting paradigms, there will be times when it is necessary for you to retreat in order to renew your vitality and reconnect with your sacred center.

Set aside time for stillness. Allow a sense of peaceful tranquility to pervade your consciousness. You may want to walk into the forest and listen to the voices of nature. Sit quietly in that energy and feel how your mind is calmed and your Spirit renewed. Listen to the messages that you receive in this meditative interval. Allow that simply ‘being’ is at least as important as all the doing that consumes most lives. If you are unable to be in nature, find a place of sanctuary in your home, church or city. Use this card to symbolically assist you in evoking a sense of renewal and equanimity.

Remember that the emotions of love and compassion influence the harmonics of the heart and the renewal of life force. Mindfully honour the sanctuary of quiet moments.”

Sanctuary as Challenger: “You are moving so fast that you are at risk for accidents. SLOW down.”*

~ By Francene Hart

Yesterday we were asked to take stock of how busy our lives are, how we are spending our time and where our stress levels are at. Today, regardless of whether you fall into the category of “everything’s under control” or “totally stressed” we are being asked to take a breather and reflect on where we are and the process that got us here, and where we are headed next.

Globally, we are undergoing a massive shift of consciousness, and no matter what is going on for each of us on a personal level, we must honour this collective process. The best way to do this is to get outside and get grounded back to our Great Mother, Gaia. Breathing in some fresh air, connecting with the trees, the plants, the birds and the animals brings us back to the present moment. It helps us to detach from any drama and put things into perspective; it also helps us to remember our part in the bigger picture. This should be a regular ritual for you, going into the forest or to the beach to reconnect and take some time to reflect and recharge your energy.

Know that by doing so, you will be able to meet your life fully present, with clarity, balance and peace.

And so it is

Namaste

Himself

Published November 8, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Himself, from The Faeries' Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

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

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

Himself: “Natural Law. Life Force. Magic. Shamanic Power.”

“Known as Himself, this Sidhe is guardian of both the hunter and the hunted – and finds no conflict in that because he understands the many necessary balances of nature. The living bond between all life, Himself is the breath that moves, the atom that dances, and his magic is in pure being – living, loving. Oengus Journeyman and the Master Maker have the magic of doing, of the creation of things. The Bright Mother has the magic of manifesting and nurturing, but Himself – he has the magic of procreation, of dancing the spark of life into being. His presence brings magic and life into a world where it is shaped and given form by Earthmother. He dances as the Bright Mother gives us birth, powering us into the world. He is the Great Father.

At the end of our lives, he is the one who dances the great dance of life and death and it is Himself who, when the piper plays his lonely call on the wave swept shore at year’s end, dances open the gate between the worlds so that the dead may pass beyond. It is also he who is willing to sacrifice himself, when that is necessary, for the sake of those whom he protects.

In between those two extremes, his wild yang energy is channeled through humans to benefit tribe and family. His family is all of us, human and animal. Shamans draw upon his power, and the best healers channel a balance between his power and the Bright Mother’s nurturing energy.

Even as our hearts beat within us, we learn to mediate the life force through joyful being and action. Expressing this power through healing and love and trust, we become more like Himself.”

Starter Reading: “When Himself appears in a card spread, he not only indicates that a great amount of energy is present in the reading, but also strongly energizes the faery cards around him. Everything he touches becomes more of whatever it is – more alive, more vigorous, more powerful, more awesome, or more awful. This card in a reading can indicate great vitality, victory, or triumph, confidence and power. There is leadership, an ability to command, steadfastness, and integrity – wild power held and channeled for the good of all by will.

Himself speaks fo protection, either of the querent or of someone the querent owes protection to, like a child or an elder. Acceptance of paternal responsibility is important, as are deep and committed relationships. He is the preserver of the natural world and its balances.

Shamanic power may be indicated here, as well as a potential for powerful spiritual healing. This card may also speak of erotic energy, passion, and potent creativity.”

When This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “When the energy of Himself is being blocked, we feel limp, enervated, drained. There may also be depression, either physical or emotional. Energy may be locked into obsessions or may swing from blocked to out of control.

Twisted, the life force, strength, and/or authority may be being misused as arrogant aggressiveness or violence towards others. When this card is challenger in a reading, careful and prayerful consideration needs to be given to how the energy can be rechanneled into its naturally creative and protective mode.

At worst, this potent energy becomes a force  for war, oppression, and domination. The very worst is when brutality or twisted sexuality is turned on the very persons this energy within us should be protecting. As in all the Sidhe powers, what has great potential for good can also have great potential for destruction. Volcanic release may occur.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

The world is waiting with bated breath to see the outcome of the election. Things could go either way. Either way could go either way. Everything is up in the air, tumultuous, chaotic, risky. It could all go horribly wrong, no matter which way it goes. But why focus on that? Focus only on what we do want to see, turning away from the current reality of upheaval.

What do we want more of right now? More chaos? Probably not a good idea. More Peace, yes please. But we can only have more peace if we are more peace. We can only have more love if we can be more love. This is the way it works. We know that but yet we get all wrapped up in our perceived worst case scenarios and it snowballs out of control.

Pull the energy back in. Ground it back down into our Great Mother. Breathe. Clear your mind of all the fear. Turn off the technology and get outside and send gratitude to our true provider and protector Gaia.

The most powerful you can be right now is to stand in your peace. You can do it passionately. You can do it unapologetically. You can feel empowered, confident and true. Know that your greatest super power right now is being absolutely you. No holding back. No compromise.

This is where you take your stand. This is where the victory lies; within your Divine wisdom and open, loving heart.

Namaste

Malachite

Malachite, from the Crystal Oversoul Attunements Oracle Card deck, by Michael Eastwood

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Malachite, from the Crystal Oversoul Attunements Oracle Card deck, by Michael Eastwood

Malachite: “Trusting The Earth”

Chakra: Base/Root
Element: Earth

“Malachite has many important healing qualities. It can help us to learn to trust the earth and the cycles of creation. Through the vibration of this stone we face life and feel that we can handle our experience on the physical plane.

Malachite’s growth can remind us of more flexible ways of integrating structure and discipline, helping us to understand these functions that are vital to carry out projects.

Working with Malachite helps us realize that we have the right to take our space in the world.

It is a powerful healing ally helping us to understand control issues. Its message is trust yourself and life – leave room for the unknown and unexpected.”

“Malachite is an exquisite Oversoul that serves to attune our sense of connection and orientation on the Earth. To our eye, it appears as deep rich green, a complex series of geometric overlapping mandalas. When we pass through its center we enter the temple and are warmly greeted by six beings.

The entire temple is carved from Malachite giving the whole atmosphere a warm green glow. We are asked to remain standing in silence and as we do so, the six beings surround us and form a six-pointed star. This geometry evokes something beautiful. Rising up through the floor appears a deva, which has an earthly elemental quality. This deva works with the Malachite Oversouls to enrich the earth star connection.

The deva telepathically show us any codes we might carry in the base chakra that are inhibiting the flow of our life force. The deva begins to focus its light on our base, sings and its song stirs within us an ancient calling that opens and strengthens the base chakra and aligns it to new frequencies of trust.

If we carry a distrust of the Earth plane and if we desire to release this pattern now is the time to do so. As the Oversouls and the Earth deva join us in their sacred sounds we too are encouraged to sing with them, thus releasing any fear.”*

~ By Michael Eastwood

Malachite is a stone of the Root or Base Chakra, and it is also a stone of the Solar Plexus and the Heart Chakras. This means that it helps us to alleviate fears while also opening our hearts and empowering us to have confidence in ourselves; an extremely healing combination. It’s swirling patterns of green are magical, and can be used as an aid in visual meditation. When wearing malachite, it is important to have a nicely polished piece, as the rough specimens can be fragile and are thought to contain toxic minerals that must never be ingested. That being said, it is a safe mineral to wear or handle in it’s polished state and many people wear Malachite pendants, earrings, rings and bracelets with no health issues. If you are concerned, you can place your polished specimen in front of you while meditating, in a mesh baggie or place it beside your bed or under your pillow. It can also be placed for specific healing on various parts of the body, particularly on the Heart or Solar Plexus Chakras or anywhere that needs immediate healing. If you are concerned, simply place it over clothing and you will still receive the maximum benefits of the vibration of the stone.

From Robert Simmons Pocket Book of Stones:

” Key Words: Enllightened leadership, creativity, confidence, protection, a healed heart

Chakras: Solar Plexus, Heart

Element: Fire

Physical: Increases vitality; supports tissue repair and recovery from illness; recommended for inflammation; arthritis, digestion, detoxification
Emotional: Aids in building self confidence and emotional clarity
Spiritual: Facilitates psychic proteciton, manifestation, enhances will forces

“Malachite is copper carbonate mineral with a monoclinic crystal system and a hardness of 3.5-4. Its name comes form the Greek world for its color, Malache (mallow). Good Malachite is found in Russia and Africa.

Malachite is one of the most important stones for protection from negative energies. It permeates the auric field with positive vibrations and strengthens the natural energetic “shell” which can screen out hostile forces, and it activates the “psychic radar” with which one feels the presence of danger. It even accentuates the sort of protection in which synchronicities seem to conspire to keep one safe. Malachite emanates the healthiest energy pattern for the heart. It assists one in maintaining emotional balance, and it offers an enhanced ability to see and avoid one’s own emotional pitfalls. The Solar Plexus Chakra is stimulated by Malachite, enhancing one’s willpower. In the presence of Malachite, it is easier to refuse temptations. Malachite instills confidence and responsibility and it is useful in making spiritual progress through right action.

Malchite harmonizes with Tiger Eye for physical energy and protecion, and with Morganite for balancing the Heart Chakra. It also works easily with other copper-based minerals such as Azurite, Turquoise, Shattukite, Chrysocolla and Ajoite.”
