Oracle Blessings, May 17

Has your loyalty been tested?

Have you seen an example of loyalty to the bitter end?

May 17 2014

This morning I am using two Oracle decks and asked the question; what will next week offer?  The decks I use are the Medicine Cards and the Tao Oracle.

The question of loyalty comes up in the cards.

How have you been loyal to your friends?

Do you expect loyalty from your friends?

Oracle Blessings, April 10

Are you truly ready to slow down?

Is there so much to do, but do you believe that there is time to do nothing?

April 10 2015

This morning I pulled a card from the Tao Oracle, and as I lifted the deck after pulling that card another card made its way onto the table. Both of these cards told a similar story even though in a different way.

Today is for slowing down and cutting back, perhaps even fading away into the shadows so that what it is that we are doing is not observed by others. This is part of our personal journey and has nothing to do with our outward community. There is no doubt that there will be time enough to put our actions on display at a later time, but for today it is all about slowing down and without our own personal growth.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away

~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry~

In quiet solitude I offer today’s mantra:

I feel my heart beat slower

Time is less important

There is space in this moment

To accomplish nothing at all

Oracle Blessings, April 4

Are you on your path?

Are you being true to whom you are the center of your core?

Are distractions taking you to a place that you do not wish to be?

April 4 2015

This weekend there are distractions, in the form of drama. This drama calls out for you to serve it, giving your energy to this drama will not serve you. Remember, you are at choice and whatever you choose; it is for you to own that choice.

Don’t waste time on what’s not important. Don’t get sucked into the drama. Get on with it: don’t dwell on the past. Be a big person; be generous of spirit; be the person you’d admire.

~Allegra Huston~

The good news is that there is a way around the distractions. A walk in the park is what calls letting the full moon energy of this weekend bask upon you, even if you’re not walking in the night the energy of the full moon is shining down upon you. This is not necessarily a time to seek solitude, but to invite a friend with you along this walk to experience the joy of nature and the grounding of the earth. This is also a time to allow that which has been in the back of your mind to come to a place of creation, perhaps as you walk with your friend in nature this is what the conversation will be about?

There is also space this weekend to look deeper into what you perceive that you own. There is a balance in everything that comes into our life, be it love, be it stuff, be it drama, be it abundance or scarcity. This weekend is a great time to look at the hidden message of what you perceive you own and the emotional feelings you get from having those possessions.

There may be a revelation long the way this weekend as well. What is it that has been building? Is there something that has been in the back of your mind wishing to be created wishing to be birthed? Perhaps now is the time to give it just a little push and see what emerges.

As the full moon hides in the red glow I offer you this mantra:

It is for me to choose

Offering my energy

Or not

To the story

And to the drama

That distracts me from my path

Oracle Blessing, March 24

What role will you play today?

March 24 2015

This morning I pull one card from the Oracle of Visions deck, this is indeed a very dramatic and artistic oracle deck.

This card asks us what role we choose to play, the manipulator or the manipulated. That does sound quite dramatic doesn’t it? But indeed we all play this role from time to time perhaps the key is accepting and understanding the role that we play.

Master of puppets, I’m pulling your strings, twisting your mind, and smashing your dreams.
 ~Metallica~  

So today be aware when your strings are pulled and also do not hide it from yourself when you pull others’ strings.

Questioning what side of the string I may be on, I offer you today’s mantra:

With a tug I dance at another’s whim

Performing without a care

With the tug of the string they dance for me

I direct the play with care and joy

Business Oracle, March 23

Who is it that you serve?

How is it that they serve you?

March 23 2015

Today we ask the Dark Grimoire Tarot what may be in the week to come regarding our business ventures.

Pulling the devil card from this deck may seem a bit ominous, and indeed the message may bring some deep shadow work. Taking a look at the things that we have put in the background, not wanting to look at them deeply, knowing now is the time to open our eyes.

You need an attitude of service. You’re not just serving yourself. You help others to grow up and you grow with them.

~David Green~

So much of what you do is being of service to others. This does not necessarily mean that this is a place of slavery, but indeed at times that may be the feeling. Keep your eyes open during the week to come and notice when you are being of service to others and when others are being of service to you. There should be an overall balance of give and take. There may be a change when you realize that you are offering to others from habit or misguided feeling of responsibility. Allowing others to succeed or fail by their own actions can sometimes be the kindest thing one can do.

Are you ready to let go of what you took ownership of?

Are you ready to draw in those who may offer guidance and wise counsel?

Calling in the abundance of both giving and receiving I offer you today’s mantra:

I offer freely

I accept graciously

Knowing when to offer a hand up

Knowing when to offer autonomy

~Dana Nöllsch~

Oracle Blessings, March 2

How will you choose to express yourself in the week to come?

March 2

As we start our week we are reminded to choose our words carefully, this may prove to be a challenge and perhaps a test.

The path ahead this week calls for slower forward movement. Wisdom takes precedence over speed.

The heart feels such change coming. There is no need to fear this change; it is just another step to our ultimate destination.

Take a look at your hands, what is it that you can create with them?

Is it time to think bigger?

There may be so many thoughts rolling around in the head this week. Even if we may feel like sharing this may not be the right time to open up. Be discerning with our words and with our actions, knowing that it is for us to protect ourselves this week.

 

Experience life in all possible ways — good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.

~Osho~

 

What is hidden is the pure ecstasy and joy in the days to come. This may not be as apparent as we wish it would be but keep your heart open and happiness will surely fill every empty space and bring light to your soul.

With all of this there will come a time of Revelation. What has been hidden deep inside your soul will make its way to your heart, this may not be an easy time, but this will open you up too so much expansion to come.

I offer this mantra my beloveds:

Today I am quiet

Choosing my words with wisdom

Embracing slow change

I will create even bigger

~Dana Nöllsch~

 

 

Oracle Blessings, February 13

How have your superstitions served you?

February 13

Today I pull one card from the Halloween Oracle to celebrate this Friday the13th.

The card I pulled is the werewolf. This speaks to us of many things; painful change, duality, and exploring our wild side.

How does your duality serve you?

Superstition tells us that today we play it safe, take no chances, but the werewolf speaks a different story. This is a day to explore duality and the discomfort that comes from radical change.

There’s a duality in every man and every woman.

~Raquel Welch~

When a black cat crosses your path today remember to stop and pet it, today is not a day to serve your superstition but today is a day to flow with joy and laughter.

As I take a moment and pet the black cat that crossed my path I offer you today’s mantra;

Do I see the shadow?

Do I see the light?

Today I am both

Fire and Ice

Oracle Blessings, January 13

Boundaries can be very useful in keeping what we do not desire at arm’s length, but boundaries also keep what we may take delight in from ever coming into view.

What is your definition of a healthy boundary?

January 13

Many boundaries are erected to protect us from fear. Fear is not always something to run from, there are times to run to those things that may not be entirely comfortable. Embracing fear and walking into that uncomfortable place may bring enlightenment and strength, but most always will teach an important lesson.

Today the path you walk will have the light of courage shining down upon it, and with that courage comes strength. This is a good time to examine those energy cords that are tying you down to what is not serving your higher self and with the light that shines down upon your path today comes the opportunity to sever those cords and walk freely and unencumbered.

Do be aware of your heart and the desires for earthly delights. The boundaries that you have put up may be eased just a little today when it comes to seeking pleasure. Perhaps it is as simple as a taste of chocolate cake or a walk in the park on a chilly afternoon.

Doing the work to connect to your guides and angels may bring wise counsel that you do not wish to hear. This is also a boundary that can be looked at. Do you only listen to what is pleasing?

Quieting your mind to go deeper in connection with your guides and angels may bring awareness to some of the boundaries that you’ve put up and may be time to take them down. Remember that the boundaries that we erect to keep ourselves safe are only intended to be there while the perceived threat is in place, once we find quiet and calm, we may be able to open up again.

The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?

Edgar Allan Poe

What may surprise you today as you examine the boundaries that you’ve already erected is that you may have something to say. As you speak your truth you may feel those boundaries that kept you from moving forward fade away and a clear path may be visible today.

Unencumbered I offer you today’s mantra:

I take the time to look at what I have built

Protective walls thick and strong

I know that it may be time

To take them down

Seeing the beauty of the other side
