Oracle Blessings, April 11

Do you feel drawn to helping others?

What are the gifts that you possess that can be used to help heal your community?

April 11 2015

This morning I open the cards and reflect on what may be offered this weekend. The cards I am using are the Medicine Cards, Oracle of Visions and the Tao Oracle. Often times I find using multiple decks can bring in a much more rich and complex message.

The raccoon tells us that we can help others, and others are looking for the help that we can offer. The path to reaching our full potential as healers begins with breaking out of the dogma and restrictions that we allow to hamper or forward momentum.

There are powers inside of you
which, if you could discover and
use, would make of you everything
you ever dreamed or imagined
you could become.

~Orison Swett Marsden~

Looking at situations from a totally different point of View will open your mind to a different way of being. What will be created from opening your mind up to this foreign point of view will indeed have its risks and potential for deep change, but the rewards may be quite substantial indeed.

With all of this; there is a great potential for furthering your self-discovery, who is it that you are deep in your heart and how is it that you wish to show up in the world. Indeed, this may be quite a busy weekend.

What is hidden though is with this great transformation that is possible; is the letting go of many things. Some of those things may not be easy to let go of. But these sacrifices are necessary for the forward momentum that is calling.

What will ultimately be revealed this weekend; if you can open up to the transformational energy that is offered, is a place of passion. This will be a passion for what you are creating now and being of service, and perhaps even a deeper understanding of your own spirituality.

Inviting self-discovery I offer you today’s mantra:

Breaking free from the cage that I have created

I see my heart expanding

Discovering what it is that I have to offer

I open my gifts to those in need

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

~Dana Nöllsch~

 

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

~Dana Nöllsch~

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

~Dana Nöllsch~

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

~Dana Nöllsch~

 

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 21

If not now then when?

March 21 2015

This morning we pull the cards from the Vintage Wisdom Oracle, and extremely beautiful and idealized deck of cards.

I often ask myself “if not now then when?” and this usually indicates a time of inpatients and excitement. Seeing something just on the horizon; that is so very appealing but not quite there yet is indeed such a tease. But through experience I have learned that sometimes rushing what you know is coming takes away much of the magic when it’s here.

Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have somone click the shutter
~Ansel Adams~

This is not a time for you to accept whatever comes your way; be discerning in the path that you choose to walk. You will know the right path when your heart feels full and your steps graceful.

This is also a time of creating with others, this is something that comes up quite a bit and teamwork at this time will surely be rewarded. One word of caution; if the team does not work together in harmony and joy perhaps that is an indication to exercise discernment and make some changes.

The importance of giving thought to all of this process may not seem that strong, but take a step back and take the time to think through what it is that you are creating now and examine if it truly is time to move forward.

With all of this said in the days to come be open to that feeling of purity in all that you do and create.

With divine timing I offer you today’s mantra:

As I hear the clock tick off the seconds

I feel the music in my soul

Calling me to a place of creation

I now know the time is now

~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~

 

Business Oracle, March 16

How important is teamwork to the success of what you are creating?

March 15 2015

Today we consult the cards in regards to business in the week to come. The cards we are using today are the Dark Grimoire Tarot and the Shamans Dream Oracle.

Teamwork and cooperation may be a bit difficult during the week to come, but persevere and there will be rewards waiting. The key is to make A solid plan, knowing that ultimately this is your plan, but don’t forget to allow others to participate.

In union there is strength.
~Aesop~

You may be surprised how all the various elements come together seamlessly as long as you allow others to have ownership as well.

This week may prove to have its fair share of frustrations, but the results will be worth the work and challenges.

With my guides and angels whispering in my ear I offer today’s mantra;

My ideas will flourish

With the help of my friends

They will blossom

~Dana Nöllsch~

Oracle Blessings, March 12

To whom or to what do you give your loyalty to?

Do you receive loyalty in return?

Does it really matter?

March 12 2015

I am using three very distinctly different decks in this morning’s draw. The first deck is the Medicine Cards, one of my go to decks. I am also using the TAO Oracle. To round it off there is the Conscious Spirit Oracle deck as well.

Today’s message is not about the big picture or drastic change, but it is about the little things that make life so beautiful. Freedom, simple heartfelt emotions, knowing one’s own truth, and taking everything with a smile, are among the little things the cards allude to. This is indeed a time to take all of those simple things to heart and also to observe how loyalty comes into play in your life today.

The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.

~Zig Ziglar~

As the little things come into view today; perhaps the bigger picture may be lost for a moment and it may be surprising that your higher self will shine as you will be aware of the wisdom that you may not have known that you possess. This may feel like slowing down today and indeed perhaps it will be but with the slowing down will come revelations that only a quiet mind can comprehend.

As spring seems to be upon us a bit early perhaps, remember that you are also part of nature and as the seasons change and shift so do you.

How will you shift from winter to spring?

As I take stock in the little things that make my life so wonderful I offer you today’s mantra;

As the days grow warmer

My heart readies to bloom

Ready to listen to the wise words

That come from my soul

~Dana Nöllsch~
