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 6

This morning we ask the cards of what lesions the week may offer. The deck we are using is the Chakra Zodiac Healing Oracle.

Where does your power come from?

How are you determined to take that power forward with you?

April 6 2015

There is a lesson coming of strength and vitality. This does not mean that we will feel strong and it does not mean that we will feel weak, but what it does tell us is to be aware of how our strength and vitality shows or perhaps of how we fail to use to use it to advance further on our path. We have more strength than we realize and this is not the time to ignore that fact. It is very acceptable for us to be assured of ourselves and show that confidence as we move forward on the path that we have chosen.

Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.

~Carl von Clausewitz~

Feeling healthy I offer you today’s mantra;

I walk with purpose

Seeing the obstacles in front of me

These are challenges that test my resolve

And I will not walk away wanting

Oracle Blessings, April 5

Today as we take a moment and celebrate the fertility of Spring I offer you this fertile insight from the cards.

Are you ready to see things from a completely new perspective?

Have you invited the veils to lift revealing the deeper truth of what it is that surrounds you?

April 5 2015

Over the dark of  Winter and even the Fall the preceded the cold there’ve been many changes in all of us. These changes seemed subtle at the time, but now that the weather warms and we come out of our hibernation, the difference in how the world looks around us will become very apparent. This is indeed a blessing for the sacredness of us, although shifting of perception may be a bit off-putting at first.

I thought I was an old soul, and that I knew life, but then starting the real life, I figured I am completely new.

Yael Naim

There will be much that we recognize as the weather turns warm, such as the passion in ourselves growing and the desires to relive what made us happy and spring times past. What may also be felt is letting go of the old ways, even though they may feel nostalgic they just don’t have the same intense feelings as before. Perhaps this calls for spiritual spring cleaning of sorts?

Intense relationships and romantic connections may be put aside for a while, this is indeed a time to clear your passionate heart and make room for the intensity of what is just around the corner. We are all ready to advance to a higher state of relationship, love, and romance. Taking this step closer to this higher state will require cleaning out of the old ways.

If you allow what it is that you are creating to serve others as well as serving yourself, you will find much recognition coming your way. As the days grow longer open your eyes and see what the sun will reveal knowing that where you are going others have been before and with that knowledge comes wisdom.

As we walk out of the shadow of  Winter and into the sunlight of Spring there will be revealed and inner truth in the way that we think. As the old ways of thinking subside, there may be a feeling of remorse, losing what we held dear in the past. This is not a place that we need to be held back, this is a place of great forward momentum as long as we allow our own inner truth to shine for us to see.

What is hidden is the potential ill feelings of those around you, as you advance along your path others may feel left behind and this may be difficult energy to cope with. It is very important that you accept the changes that are happening within you even if others seemingly do not support you in the moment. This is your journey and yours alone.

What will ultimately be revealed is a more pure way of living and  loving. This is a place where the purity of truth will shine and complexity will be replaced by simplicity.

As the world around us returns to fertility I offer you this mantra:

As I awake from slumber

Eyes opening wide

Vision clearing

As if I am seeing for the first time

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 17

How important is ritual in your life?

Are your rituals fluid, adjusting for the time of year and season?

march 17 2015

This morning we feel into the energy of the earth with the Earth Power Oracle. Drawing one card from the deck we draw Sumba Island.

Sumba Island is not a place for a relaxing vacation. This is a place where the people are fierce in their convictions of ritual and competition. The lesson for us today is to look at how our rituals bring fertility to our lives.

Fertility of all kinds is my birthright. I am connected to all the cycles of the land and sky. Healthy fierceness is something to be valued. Be patient, the time will come.

What is it that comes to mind when you hear “healthy fierceness”?

This may be a time also to look at the rituals that have brought fertility and joy into your life. Perhaps you may even think about taking your rituals to the next level?

It seemed to be a necessary ritual that he should prepare himself for sleep by meditating under the solemnity of the night sky… a mysterious transaction between the infinity of the soul and the infinity of the universe

~Victor Hugo~

 As my morning unfolds much the way most mornings do; I offer you today’s mantra;

With words and intention I call

My own power I feel

At times soft

Other times quite fierce

In ritual I dance

Inviting my tribe to join

~Dana Nöllsch~

 

Oracle Blessings, February 5

What is it that is pure in your life?

What is your definition of purity?

February 5

Kuan Yin tells us this morning that it is time to sort the threads that make up the fabric of your life. Embrace the purest of threads that align with your soul purpose and release the threads that do not quite fit so that they may be woven elsewhere.

As we feel the moon energy shifting from waxing to waning, we are drawn to letting go so that we may allow an invite when the time feels right.

Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Chief Seattle

As I sort the threads in the tapestry of my life I offer you today’s mantra;

I weave the intricate pattern

Life brilliant and full of color

Knowing this time is for sorting

Waiting for the time of gathering

Oracle Blessings, January 31

Today we are using a Shamanic Wheel spread.

Are you ready to travel over a great distance to come to that place where destiny calls you?

January 31

Feel the Divine Feminine that radiates outward from deep inside of your soul. These outward waves of internal spirit beckon you to ride and travel with them; this is indeed a time of discovery but perhaps not always a comfortable discovery.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore
~André Gide~

As your own Divine Feminine comes to light; remember to always embrace the higher good. In the moment it may seem uncomfortable and perhaps impractical, but know that if you follow your guidance you will reach that place of embracing that higher good is calling to you.

As we all are a balance of the Divine Feminine; embrace the Sacred Masculine today and see the strength of the Sacred Masculine aiding us in riding those waves of inspiration the Divine Feminine provide.

As we walk to the south our ancestors whisper wise counsel and show us visions, as we embrace the self-reflection, we will be offered intuition much the same as our ancestors have been.

The light shines on us this morning from the west and as we gaze into the Seers stone we are given a glimpse of what it is that we are creating, and if we listen to her wise counsel we may be shown the ways of nurturing our creations.

What does all this mean?

The feminine energies are very powerful this weekend, not only the energy of the women that surrounds you but also the feminine energy that is within you. Embracing this and listening to the wise counsel from our angels and guides will enlighten us to what may be created. The strength of the sacred masculine will aid in this endeavor, so the balance should be sought after as well. This is indeed a great time for quiet meditation embracing our masculine and feminine and allowing those ideas of creation and nurturing into our hearts. If you feel compelled to redecorate, or build a birdhouse, or even make some shifts and changes in a relationship now is a good time to bring those ideas to your heart and see if they feel right and comfortable.

As I ride the waves of Divine Feminine, this morning I offer you this mantra:

I rise and greet today acknowledging the goddess shining her light on my path

Envisioning creativity as I step forward

Embracing the masculine as I create

Feeling the balance that brings nurturing and joy

Oracle Blessings, January 26

Are you searching for that safe place to create?

January 26

In this morning’s tarot draw we find lots of fire energy, creation, passion and perhaps even a little destruction. The Jaguar appears to offer protection and strength. The opportunities that will be offered in the week to come will bring that safe place for creation and perhaps more importantly for destruction as well.

As the path is laid out in front of you this week, you will see opportunities to show your resolve; this may be a place that will test your strength.

If you allow your heart to open to a new passions you may see what it is you are creating taking on a new way of being.

What you will create with your hands will offer the gift of light for your next creation.

As you listen to the words rolling around in your head you will feel so much desire and passion, let that desire and passion be the fuel for your creation.

All of this being said; this shows us that the fire and passion will fuel the creation, but what about the destruction? Some say that for one to create on such a high vibrant level one must destroy in equal amounts.

Nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transforming.

The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.

~Ferdinand Foch~

This week search out for what it is that calls to be destroyed, that is a heavy word bringing visions of violence but it does not have to be violent. This is the energy of fire, of allowing what no longer serves to be transformed into another state, bringing in space for what is new.

What is it that brings you to a state of polarity?

This feeling may make an appearance this week as you create. Asking yourself that nagging question; “what side of me do I allow to take the lead?

Feeling the fire that surrounds me I offer today’s mantra:

The fire burns my ambition clean

Ashes all that remain

Now I see my heart’s desire

And the blank canvas for my paint
