Are you truly ready to slow down?
Is there so much to do, but do you believe that there is time to do nothing?
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
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?
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.
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
To the story
And to the drama
That distracts me from my path
How will you choose to express yourself in the week to come?
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.
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
What is it that you are saving?
Are you ready to share the love you have saved?
Love is an energy that comes from the infinite places in our hearts and souls. Other emotions may come and mask our true feelings of love, but deep down our desire to give and our desire to receive love will always be part of who we are.
Today we celebrate our love for others, and open our hearts; this is an opportunity to show all of us that this is a way that we can live every day. Remember our attention today is focused and that focus can be embraced every day, there is no reason to hoard the love we wish to share keeping it only to express one day a year.
Passion belongs in every moment, love with passion, contemplate with passion, rest with passion, and eat with passion. This is one way to truly connect with the world around us and thrive.
There may be times of difficult conversations and hard work that may seem fruitless in the moment, but remember your heart holds wisdom that cannot be measured. Trust what your heart is telling you.
There is a hidden importance of embracing the emotions that you feel today. Even though you may be sharing time with the one you love, take a moment and go deep into what you are feeling as well. There is a message in the emotions that are coming for you today the message may not be crystal clear in the moment but indeed the message is of great importance.
All of us have grace and goodness within our souls, today open your eyes and open your heart to the grace and goodness of the one you love and allow them to see the same in you.
Passionately I offer this loving mantra:
Sharing without fear
Living with joy
Opening without hesitation
Listening with happiness
Dancing with passion
How have your superstitions served you?
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.
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
What is it that you know of manifestation?
We talk so much about manifesting our dreams, hopes, and desires. But what does manifestation really mean in the spiritual sense? I have found from my personal experience that manifestation can be very powerful and surprisingly so often times unexpected. The outcome meeting my desires on a broad sense, but perhaps just a little off on what I thought my intention truly was.
It is true our guides and angels have a sense of humor?
When calling in our guides and angels to assist us in manifestation, we must always remember to keep that sense of humor ourselves when we realize the outcome. But even more than that what I have discovered is that manifestation often times brings me the tools to create what it is that I wish, but not directly bringing in what it is that I wish. I think the thing to remember is that manifesting most often times gives us the ability and tools to create what it is we believe we wish, but at the end of the day it is still up to us to create and to do the work.
Can you understand how much Well-Being is flowing to you? Do you understand how much orchestration of circumstances and events on your behalf is available to you? Do you understand how loved you are? Do you understand how the creation of this planet, the creation of this Universe, fits together for the perfection of your experience?
Today is a day to play with manifestation. Take some time and discover what it is you wish to draw in, make intention to draw that in and perhaps even have a mantra to bring attention to what it is you desire. Pay attention during the day and see what opportunities show themselves that may lead to what it is you desire. This is certainly a great day to call in what it is that you wish and to see the surprising results.
With intention I offer you today’s mantra;
Asking for my desire
My guides listen
Seeing the opportunities
Knowing it is time to create
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
Today I am using a new Tarot Deck. The Voyager Tarot. I am finding the symbology very deep as you may find as I interpret this morning’s reading.
Thank you Jann for this amazing Tarot Deck.
How have rhythms played a part in your life?
Have there been times when you wish you could’ve changed the cycles of your own rhythm?
As you walk your path today, you may find that the path gets narrow. This narrower the focus will serve you well; this is not the day to be easily distracted.
Community calls to your heart, cooperation and teamwork are offered freely. This may be the perfect time to think of the bigger picture, what it is that you cannot accomplish by yourself.
The answers to what it is that you are creating may not come easily, but indeed this is one of those times where it is not the destination that is important but the journey.
Your mind may be a bit open today to the effects of those around you. This is something to be aware of especially if negativity from those around you creeps into your own thoughts.
Music and rhythm find their way into secret places of the soul
All of this leads us back to our own rhythms. What have you noticed in your own repeating pattern that brings enjoyment? What have you noticed in your own repeating pattern that has brought sorrow?
What is hidden with all of this is your opportunity to learn much about yourself and with that learning making a discovery of the fears that keep you on your own repeating pattern. Perhaps this is the time to embrace the rhythm of love and let go of the rhythm of fear.
As I feel the rhythm of the Moon diminishing her light I offer you today’s mantra;
As I listen to the rhythm of the music
I open to the knowledge of self
With no room for judgment
I get to know myself on a deeper level
What is it that is pure in your life?
What is your definition of purity?
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.
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
What is your fondest memory of love?
In the days to come memories of love past may enter your thoughts. There is more to this than just reminiscing, there is also building intention for what it is that you wish to draw into your life. There are many great lessons for you of what it is that you desire. Remember, there are always two sides to the coin, there’ll also be memories of what you wish not to bring into your life once again. The shadow of disappointment teaches as much as the light of ecstasy.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it
With a loving heart and memories of joy I offer you today’s mantra;
I close my eyes and remember the words
Still ringing soft and sweet in my ear
I close my eyes and remember the kiss
The sweet taste still on my lips
I close my eyes and remember the touch
Skin tingling even now
I close my eyes and remember the feeling
Loves delightful joy
