Are you ready to open your eyes and see your role in a dynamic situation?
Can you let go of fear and ego to see reality?
This morning I draw a single card from the Vintage Wisdom Oracle.
This card whispers much, perhaps a bit louder than just a whisper. What we see reflected in the image in front of us is the combination of pleasure and pain as we allow ourselves to open and bloom.
Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!
As we open to the wonders that surround us, we also feel deeper the pain that comes with seeing clearly. Today we are directed to look at a situation that may be problematic; opening our eyes to see the reality of our part in what may be confrontational. This is not a time to let our ego get in the way, if we are at fault it is time to admit it, first to ourselves and then to those who are influenced by the situation. We may feel the pain and displeasure from those thorns digging into our skin, but we cannot open and blossom without them.
As I tend to the garden of my soul, I offer you this mantra:
I blossom in beautiful colors
Opening to the world that is offered to me
Seeing truly my many roles
Knowing my imperfections and humanity
From which side of the mirror do you gaze?
This morning we ask the cards about love and relationship in the week to come. The cards that we are using are the Vintage Wisdom Oracle and the Tarot of Transformation.
How we look at the world around us is so very subjective, and how we see the relationships that we are in is also very subjective. The cards remind us this morning that ultimately we are at choice to be happy and fulfilled or to be miserable and wanting. Make your choice, and own the outcome, and always remember that you can choose again.
During the coming week find time to play with your beloved, the simple act of play may heal some of the wounds that you are feeling.
This may also be a great time to embrace what you may perceive as chaos, but if you look deeper it may be the beginnings of balance.
Looking to those around you for support may also prove to be very beneficial.
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through’ narrow chinks of his cavern
What is yet to be revealed in the week to come is how soft touch will bring harmony and balance and a deeper connection. Look to your beloved with soft loving eyes, and share with a loving gentle voice.
Looking from a different perspective, I offer you today’s mantra;
As a child would I embrace play
Inviting my beloved to join
Relinquishing the need to control
Finding Harmony and desire
How will you fill your plate today?
This morning the Oracle of the Dragonfae offers up The Lovers at the Feast card.
Today like any other day, but perhaps a bit more important in this moment, remember that you are a choice as to what it is that you consume. The food we consume is not only for pleasure is also for fuel and for health. Making wise choices and what is right for you becomes quite important in the days to come. It is clear that you have felt that a change is needed, but the resistance has been there as well. Today is a good day to challenge that resistance and make a small change in what it is that you consume.
Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork
With an empty belly I offer you today’s mantra:
I see the choices clearly
Tasty morsels of delight
Knowing what will serve me
I fill my belly and my soul
What is it that you are fighting?
Why do you choose to go into battle?
Today we draw from the Mythic Oracle.
Ares comes to us as we pull a single card this morning. He brings us the message to step back and take a wider look at what is happening today. If it is into battle that you go today, be sure you have a clear perception of why and how. The battle that we are speaking of may be a simple conflict between two people or a difficult challenge that calls to be overcome. By taking a moment and stepping back and asking you yourself the question why, you may find a surprising answer that may lead you to avoiding the battle all together. There is always a choice as to how we hold ourselves in battle.
Bravely I offer today’s mantra:
I look at the challenge head on
I know why I am here
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
This morning I draw one single card from the archetype deck.
How has communication been important in your life?
Today the archetype of the translator will come to view. Listening closely to what is being said and hearing more than just the words being offered is something to practice this day. Listen closely and see how deep these conversations go, I have no doubt that you will find these conversations go so much deeper than the mere words being said.
What is it that you will take away from this deep listening?
Be aware as you fall into this practice of the deep listening to not let your own ego filter what it is that you think you hear. This is a place that letting go of expectations will serve well.
|“Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker. When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.”
|Sue Patton Thoele~
Hearing more than just the words offered I offer you today’s mantra;
Listening to the words that are offered
Hearing more than just the sounds
I practice listening as a form of communication
Tonight we celebrate the Full Moon, the Wolf Moon. Feeling her energies and opening up our hearts to the light that she will shine upon us.
This Wolf Moon will activate emotions and if allowed may also invite conflict. Be aware of the energy you share as the wolf influences your words..
Today we consult the cards about love in the week to come..
What is the path to opening the heart to the full potential of joy?
Are we prepared to loose ourselves even for just a moment to pure joy?
Unconditional love opens pathways to the heart triggering joy and abundance. The path to experiencing this unconditional love starts with finding that unconditional love for oneself. In the week to come we may let go of the fear of the negative emotions and allow ourselves to feel without attachment. Along with what we may feel are negative emotions; we may also experience a connection to our higher selves. Freeing our heart from the burden of fear we will create more abundance and allowing a deeper connection to our beloved’s and even our guides and angels.
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place
~Zora Neale Hurston~
As we are freed from the bounds of fear the messages will become clear. In the week to come it is time to listen to this higher guidance and heed the whispers without the chains of fear true heart consciousness may be within our grasp.
What is hidden is where the true beauty lies. This may be found with communion with nature.
Within our hearts lies a beautiful forest, complex, and inviting.
What is waiting to be revealed as the fire within us connecting us to the divine. Indeed, it is time for that fire to shine. We may be called to express our inner passions and desires in the days to come, honoring ourselves and our beloveds sharing only with a pure heart our thoughts, emotions, and passions with the ones we love.
I open my heart without fear and offer this mantra:
Today I am love
This morning we ask the cards what the week may hold in regards to our business relationships. This may also reflect on our personal relationships as well.
Even with all the distractions that surround us, can you keep your eyes open this week?
There is a constant flux in life and in business. It is true that nothing ever stays the same. Actions are the catalyst for change but what if these actions that bring on that change are not your own? How you react to the actions of others can set the stage for what will come. Be aware of how you react to someone else’s intentional actions that may be a bit off-putting in the week to come.
He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.
In the week to come there will be an opportunity to learn more about what it is that you are passionate about. This is an opportunity to embrace. Perhaps just listening and taking in this knowledge will serve more than taking part in the conversation.
This knowledge will teach you how to prepare for a time of rebirth. This rebirth may not be happening in the week to come, but the preparation for it certainly is.
Gather your troops; the ones that you trust to assist you in putting up the protection that will keep your core values safe.
What does all this mean? What I am seeing is that this is a time to take a close look at the people around you with discernment, who are the ones that will be with you when everything changes and it’s time for them to step up and be at your side. Reward your friends; especially the ones who have proven to be loyal and perhaps it is time to let the others go.
How has discernment shown up in the things that you do every day?
Has your discernment helped to keep things simple?
What is hidden this week is that someone wishes to be an apprentice of sorts to what you are creating. They wish to learn from you and what you have created. Look deep into this offer and deep into their motivation, but also look deeper into your reactions. This opportunity may show you some shadows of your own that perhaps it’s time to address.
With great appreciation for the people who surround and support me every day I offer you this mantra:
In stillness I listen
Hearing more than the song
In light I observe
Seeing more than the dance
This morning I am using the Medicine Wheel Spread and the Vision Quest Tarot. Feeling the solstice energy and the new Moon coming this weekend I open to what the cards offer and listen to the whispers of the elders.
What is it that the earth will offer you today?
The earth freely offers much. This weekend as we celebrate the Winter Solstice perhaps we can offer her something back. Maybe what we can offer is appreciation and reverence as we celebrate the shortest day and the longest night.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love ~Hamilton Wright Mabi
The south beckons truth and honesty as the energy of the west wishes to be set free. This is the balance of the masculine and feminine this weekend and calls to us to open to our feminine side and celebrate the earth mother with reverence and honesty at the same time allowing our masculine side freedom to soar.
The ancestors wish to show us something, perhaps it is our inner strength that they wish us to see or maybe it is our creativity that they wish us to explore. Combining these two elements, strength and creativity, will showcase our talents in everything we do this weekend.
How does your strength fuel your creativity?
Don’t hesitate to allow your passion to shine over this weekend with your beloved. Sharing each other’s warmth over this long winter night, maybe this is just a way to show reverence to nature and honor the earth energies that offer us so much.
Thankful for the light and embracing the dark I offer this manta:
Balance comes for just a brief moment
Today I invite that moment
What will it take for you to trust your intuition?
Are you willing to look beyond the filters that keep you from seeing what should be so very clear?
Salmon enters this morning’s draw to tell us of the potential in trusting what we know and our ability to see clearer as long as we get out of our own way. Often times the world that we see around us and the world we see within us is heavily filtered, this in theory is to keep us protected from the things that we just cannot comprehend. But there are times to look beyond those filters. Times when your own strength will take you through the challenges that clear vision may awaken.
Strength is the product of struggle, you must do what others don’t to achieve what others won’t
As you travel along your path today there will be an opportunity to see into your own shadows, seeing beyond the filters that give you the illusion of safety. Even if what you see is difficult, know that this experience is for you to embrace. It may seem like a lot of work going deep into the shadowy spaces in your soul today, but remember when that work is done there will be so much gained. You know more than you realize, and trusting your own intuition will take you much further today than you ever could imagine.
What is it that you are afraid of?
As you do this work of clarity, your strength and vitality will show even greater. There will be times to break through some tough walls that have been holding you back, but this is the path for your further enlightenment this day.
Dancing in my own shadows I offer to share my mantra with you:
The curtains, dark and heavy
Revealing a clearer vision
