When you gaze into the crystal-clear waters of love, what is it that you see gazing back at you?
Self-reflection calls in the days to come.
What is it that you learned of love?
What is it that you desire from the experience of love?
As we walk our path it is important to remind ourselves that we are beautiful, and perfect in our imperfections. This is an opportunity to open our hearts even further into loving ourselves, this is not a place of selfish actions, but actually this opens all of us up to a place of selflessness. With your own internal discoveries as you reflect on love make a point to communicate your discoveries to the ones in your life who are important to you. This place of openness and sharing will demonstrate the true caring for them as you open up your own vulnerability and trust.
Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, ‘This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.’
What you may not see is the importance of the words “I love you”. There’s a place of healing waiting to be explored and those three simple words are the key to opening the door to the healing that is waiting. The importance of communicating your own discoveries to the ones you love will become apparent in the days to come even if in this moment it may seem frivolous, remember to honor yourself and your discoveries at the same time honoring the ones you love and trusting them with your own vulnerability. This is a place that offers much healing and discovery.
As I look into the crystal clear water I offer this mantra:
My discoveries are many
I count myself lucky
Love has found me
And I am worthy
Do you feel as though you are walking a tight rope?
Could you use a helping hand to balance as you journey across the precipice?
Today we draw one single card; taking a look at what Love may offer in the week to come. The card we drew represents the love between Venus and Vulcan, opposites coming together to balance each other and offer support to accomplish what they could not do alone. For you as you walk the tight rope this week, reach out your hand to your beloved and allow them to offer balance. In turn they may reach their hand out to you when they feel uneasy footing, be there for them no matter what it takes offering your support and love as they will for you.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
If you are searching and open for someone to enter your life this card reminds us that at times opposites do attract. Be open to someone who has talents to offer that may be opposite but complementary to your own. This will not make for an easy relationship, but it certainly will bring vibrancy to what will come.
Opening to the blending in relationship will bring to light the shadows that are most often left in the dark. The light of another this week will call to you, the time is right to allow that light into your heart.
Are you ready to blend with another in ways that will bring light to the dark?
Walking the tightrope this morning I offer you today’s mantra:
Appreciating the talents of another
I reach out my hand
Offering love and support
An opening to balance
Can you be strong in your convictions?
Today, Kuan Yin whispers to us to be strong in what we hold true in our hearts and souls. Others around us may exercise influence to push and pull in direction that are comfortable for them, today it is not about their comfort, but about us staying strong to what we hold dear in our hearts and souls.
Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
Today I offered to share my mantra with you:
I offer my truth
Not for approval
But to open a window so that you may see deeper into my heart
Has anger and disappointment brought you to the brink of exasperation?
These emotions are normal and in many ways they can be healthy. Suppressing these emotions may in time destroy us from the inside, finding a way to vent these feelings and emotions in a productive manner will help us in staying balanced. Being aware of how we act on these emotions will serve us well during the week to come. How we act on our emotions of anger and disappointment may indeed put our security at risk as well as our ability to enjoy the fruits of our labors.
In all situations, this week keep your head calm and do not act without thinking first.
Any person capable of angering you becomes your master
By the end of the week you may see an opportunity arising. This opportunity should not be ignored no matter how you feel about it when it is presented to you. Indeed, fate is reaching out its hands and offering your next adventure.
With open hands and accepting heart, I offer you today’s mantra:
My emotions run strong
My head stays cool
With intellect and discernment, I choose my reaction
Honoring my emotions and honoring my head
Do you feel the calling to slow down and take stock of the love that graces you?
Slowing down does not mean stopping altogether, the week to come calls for romantic gestures. These gestures do not need to be big, but be sure to show your feelings for your beloved in a sincere and deep ways. Along with these romantic gestures take the time to see where your beloved could use some support, perhaps joining in with them on the daily chores lightening their load just a bit to make their days a bit brighter and easier.
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Today is the perfect day to share some time with your beloved, talking and communicating the deeper feelings that you may have resisted sharing. In the space of openness and honesty much may be revealed. This May be the catalyst for that transformation that you have felt coming. Remember when we resist the change that needs to happen, we create tension in the fabric of the relationship.
As slow as water flowing uphill, I offer you today’s heartfelt mantra:
Today there is no hurry
There is space for words to flow freely
And time to dance slowly
With my beloved
Are you seeing clearly?
Is there something that you are missing?
Intuition can be a great tool, even though there may be very little facts to back up what you feel. When it comes to business decisions often time’s intuition is a major part even though we may not consciously be aware of it. What would happen if we made all of our decisions on our gut feeling alone?
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
In the weeks to come be at ease with which you create, have fun and find joy in the act of creation. Behind-the-scenes there may be a time and space to bring someone else in to mediate an issue that has been brewing for some time. Your own wisdom, the wisdom that you feel in your heart, will serve you in making this decision. Pay attention to that feeling in your head, that feeling that you are being betrayed, for where there is smoke there is fire.
The end of the calendar year is fast approaching, and this has traditionally been a time for great changes to be put into place. As this year clicks over to the next; honor that tradition. What are the changes that you wish to put into place as the calendar changes from one to another?
Even though there is been much Busy-Ness things have been running slow. This will continue for a while and it is for you to make the choices that will serve you best in this time of doldrums.
As I sit upon still waters waiting for the wind; I offer you this mantra:
I know in my heart what it is I must do
My intuition points the direction clearly
I prepare for the inevitable to come
Greeting the change with open arms
What would you do if you had all the love that you desire?
What does satisfaction look like for you?
Today we look at the week ahead and the love that may be offered there, the love of family, friends and our relationships that carry so much passion. The theme is abundance, abundance of possibilities. This is where we can explore expectations as well as desires. Remember that there is a fine line with our beloveds regarding moments of no expectations and expressing the expectations that our hearts call for.
The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.
The path that Love calls for romance, dinner and dancing perhaps, time spent together without expectations, just enjoying the moments and being free to share our deepest feelings and desires. In these moments there will be a freedom to share what is in the heart, freedom to express with loving words our desires, expectations and feelings. There may be a discovery of past life energy in our relationships as we explore the freedom of open communication, feelings that this has happened before.
Even in this time of exploring expectations, and spending time with our beloveds without expectations, remember to be free with your loving energy not only to your beloveds but to yourself as well.
With a full and open heart I offer you this loving mantra:
I share all that I am with my beloveds
Opening for them to share as well
Knowing that in this moment this is all we need
Love and passion may strike like a thunderbolt this week, are you ready for the emotional push and pull?
When the love and passion comes suddenly without warning, the balance of life may be disrupted for a time. This is part of the adjustment period, and this time should be honored, even though difficult. The choice may be to explore or run away, and neither choice is inherently right or wrong.
I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.
It is important that one knows what the heart desires. In this time of sudden change this is even more important; as what is being drawn in is very powerful. The comfort and recognition in the relationship to come is there for a deeper reason, almost as if you have known each other for quite some time. Even with this comfort it is not to be forgotten to live freely and openly in the moment; communicating with each other even when that communication seems difficult.
Listening is more that hearing words, the eyes tell a vibrant story as well.
With all this wonderful passion and love energy there will also be difficulties, do not be afraid to ask your community for help. The wise counsel of close friends may bring new light to your own shadows.
Look to the differences for enlightened spiritual growth. Differences in beliefs should not bring arguments, but should open new doors.
With passion and desire I offer you today’s mantra:
I feel my heart open to what is new
Allowing pleasure and passion to fill my heart
Are you ready for the love in your life that you desire?
Is your heart willing to open up, both to receive and offer that love that you desire most?
Raven tells us that great magic is coming, it may not be understood or predictable, but indeed it is offering much. Even though this magic may not be for you to control it is definitely for you to accept and perhaps even influence the course and direction that this magic will take you. This is a time for you to be clear on what it is that you wish to bring into your love, be it communication, passion companionship or perhaps pure joy.
Passing into higher forms of desire, that which slumbered in the plant, and fitfully stirred in the beast, awakes in the man.
The cards are telling us to not only be open to what you wish to bring in but to be supportive loving kind and generous in your relationships. This is the time to be active and vibrant, showing up in the biggest way that you can for the ones that you love. This positive, outgoing energy on your part may be the catalyst that brings in more love and energy on the part of the ones that you love.
Do not fear, showing the depths of your affections, and have no expectations of anything in return. This freedom for you will allow freedom for others to join you in this amazing dance of passion.
My heart opens to today’s mantra:
My passion and love is for all to see
No longer hiding behind a silk curtain
Transparent and open is who I long to be
Knowing the ones who love will follow me
Once again we have the privilege of Denise as our guest reader. Today she goes deep into the message and indeed this message resonates with me today in many ways.
We talk about change, transformation and evolution a lot in these oracle blessings. If you weren’t convinced of the radical nature of times like these before, is it sinking in now? Oh my goodness…
With such intense energies bombarding our beautiful Earth right now, it’s important to remember to rest and to say “no” when we know it’s the best way. The cocoon offers a respite from daily doing to focus upon the higher task of aligning with our becoming. We are all busy, but introspection is key to balance-beyond-overwhelm now.
You are the Creator of your experience. It’s important to remember this now in matters of the heart. What values do you call forth and honor in relationships? Stay true to yourself, being honest about fears and jealousies that hinder you from being who you wish to be in love. Step beyond them and enjoy your spirit flight.
A perceptual shift is very likely right now. It may be helpful to take an inventory of at least one story you tell yourself that is not true. Then open to your grander view of the Universe. What changes “out there” as you clear away the cobwebs within?
The message of Lake Baikal, the hidden influence in this draw: “I can be independent and successful. I can be alone and not lonely. Being different can be a source of power. There is magic in the world and I can perceive it.” ~ Stacey Demarco
Your mantra, Beautiful Beloveds: “May I fly free from the stories that bind my wings. I am willing to be the masterful creator of my life.”
In bliss and love, with abundant Reiki blessings from my heart to yours ~ Denise
