Viewpoint

             This morning I woke up with the knowledge of our limitations.  As well as our possibilities.  We often think we can’t do something, and then that comes true, and we aren’t able to.

             But, when we believe that we can, that also comes true.  Which is what our message is about, when applied to awareness.  Self awareness.

A Different Angle

             When we look at a particular situation, or simply ourselves, we view it from a specific perspective.  Can we see this from another vantage point?  Absolutely.

             The example I was given has to do with stepping out of our own heads, and looking with Divine eyes.  Looking from the perfect angle of the angels.

             That brilliant spark of Source within us all is nearly blinding in its bright clarity.  All we need to do is allow our physical eyes to rest gently and focus our soul vision.

             To that end, we’ve been given a fabulous daily draw in validation and encouragement.  Because, truly, there are no limits to our possibilities.

creativity and vastness

“The Cosmos  ~  41  ~

Creativity and Vastness

The Cosmos appears as an Ally and never as a Challenger.  Creativity in all forms is represented by the Cosmos.  This is a sign to place your attention on creative projects . . . they will be successful.  Remember that all of life is creative, and you are always co-creating with the Divine.

The Cosmos also represents the principle of infinity and the vastness of the energetic exchange of consciousness influencing all living things.  This teaches us that every intention we set is, in fact, contagious, with the power to influence others.

We’re entangled at our deepest energetic place, so we can’t help but have an effect on others – from an individual level to a global one.

This is a sign to remind you to open up to the well of creativity deep within you and be mindful of your thoughts and actions: both are influencing your outer world.

Most important, keep taking action toward your goals, as the Cosmos responds perfectly to manifest your highest Destiny.  Expect to be inspired and to meaningfully touch others with all that you create.”

Expansive Disclosure

             Here’s what happens.  When we set our intentions, express our gratitude, quietly connect with Source, we build our future.  Today’s prayers are tomorrow’s reality.

             The thinking of now is the building of patterns for later.   So, when we are appreciative and joyful, that attracts more of the same.  It does this, no matter which direction our emotions are headed.

             This morning, I woke up with that message, and the following statement:

discoveries ahead.

             Clearly we need to stay alert for inspirations and ideas.  They could come from within or without.  Our job is simply to accept them and then utilize the creative power they bring with them.

             All while doing it mindfully, in a lovingkindness sort of mood.  With a thought towards timing.  It will take exactly as long as it takes.

patience

“Dolphin  ~

‘Tune into the rhythm of our breath to find stillness and patience.’

Playful sleek swimmer, gregarious intelligent mammal who sixty million years ago bestrode the earth on four legs, Dolphin has adapted more elegantly to her world than any other creature.

She embodies patience and shows how with time and slow determination you can create wonders, move mountains, and become the person your heart desires.

Dolphin must still breathe salty air as she moves rhythmically through the waves and counsels that breathing techniques can heal body and soul, and transport you to other planes.”

             (It cannot be expressed loudly or often enough how VERY much I adore this animal.  Really.  As in, true worship.)

At Seemingly Any Point

             We have a brief one today, because there’s just a single thing to say.   It’s more like a statement, really, than a message.  But it needs to be written down, and then held, and then released.

             This is what I heard:

Miracles Happen

             They occur.  True enough.  Do they often appear in the form we think they should?  Not always.  But they do show up.

             Sometime, fairly soon it feels like, we’ll all (individually, or combined) notice one (or more).  They aren’t confined to religions or labels.  They don’t follow traditional rules or people-defined borders.  In fact, they rarely stay well between the lines at all.

             They simply occur.  They happen.  We need to understand that.  We need to accept it, and move on.  When we need one, we only have to ask.

             Stepping away from our regular rotation around the card altar right now, we are being given the gift of a second Universal Truth.  Also, I was directed to transcribe both views of this one, completely.

universal flow of consciousness

“Magic Stream  ~  18  ~

‘Everything is connected through the universal flow of consciousness.’

Upright:

Every experience you have seems to have its own life story, with a beginning; a middle; and eventually, an end.  However, there is danger in seeing events as separate from one another, since in fact they are all part of a continuity and a greater evolution.

Like an ever-flowing Magic Stream, your experiences filter through the whole world, one leading into another, informing and influencing still more.

Inspiration, invention, and revelations rarely come to just one person.  The collective awareness is a shared storehouse of potential.  When you remember you are part of the fluid continuity of life, you become a channel for great inspiration.

Allow the magic to flow through you and carry your dreams into reality.  Your success will benefit many.

Reversed:

In a reversed position, the Magic Stream card represents swimming against the current.  There are times when effort and sheer willpower result in victory and celebration, but this isn’t one of them.

You can’t force inspiration, and you can’t manufacture creativity, lest you borrow too heavily from others’ ideas.  Neither can you make someone love you or orchestrate a series of events that might place you in a more favorable position.

Now is the time to drop the ‘trying’ and jump into the stream and float.  Immerse yourself in the experience of being fully present with whatever is true for the moment.

You will never step in the same river twice anyway.”

             As an aside here, I just realized that this illustration will be the next card that I have enlarged, since I can’t get the beach sand one done.  (I knew it had to do with water ………… )

Gabriel

Gabriel

             None of these photos are marked or credited, but I know that Archangel Gabriel is who we’re looking at.  In case anyone needs some extra attention or direction or guidance right now, make that request.    (They show up because their help is how we get through the rough parts of our journey.)

.

Composure

             Today’s message was one of those bold types, the kind that arrives in its own unique way.  I woke up from personal-related dreams, but had nothing to share.  No longer am I in a panic when this is the case.  (Phew!)

             I’ve learned that it shows up when it feels like it.  And this one did.  Much later in the day, and fully formed.   Complete, unto itself.

Relax

             This one is focused on de-stressing.  It’s a reminder.  No one died.  And, if someone did?  Is there still not joy to be found in that person’s life?

             As much as we’d all like to let go of our shit-storm of a life, and plop down in front of some delightfully funky hut on the beach (oh, just me?), we know that right this second, we probably cannot.

oregon coast

             That doesn’t mean we drop the dream!  No way, there’s always hope.  Always.  But right this second, most likely we have bills and responsibilities.

             To face the journey and to do it with joy, we only need to step away briefly.  Allow those quick 3 minutes of deep breathing.  If there’s more time, we can pray or meditate.  When we’ve got half an hour, pop in a guided CD.

             Actual vacations?  Also an option.  But right this second we can relax, merely by sitting here, being.  Not doing, not thinking, not stressing, not fretting, not worrying, not texting, not reading, not even sleeping.

             What the Universe wants us to never forget is that we chose this adventure.  Take a second, and be in it.  Relax.

Discretionary Power

             Right now, we’re talking about Caution.  It’s all wrapped up in being aware and being careful.  Not, however, being afraid.

             What I heard and saw had no fear involved.  Only mindfulness and our full attention.

(Double) Check Your Work

             Much like when we face a Mercury retrograde situation, at this moment in time, we are being reminded to watch for errors.  Even though we don’t believe in mistakes, they are simply lessons, we do need to stay alert for things that aren’t quite right.

             One of the examples I was shown had to do with accounting of some sort.  And, as soon as we left the house today (for some super-quick erranding) our first transaction had to be refigured.

             I spoke up, and it was taken care of in a kind and helpful way.  Whatever else is going on, being alert and kind is the key.

            Back within our regular rotation around the card altar, this draw had me singing along with Sara Bareilles.

guardian angel

“Be Brave  ~

Guardian Angel

Although at times it may feel as though you are unsafe or in the dark, your guardian angel assures you that you’re completely safe, protected, and guided.  

Don’t be fooled by illusion of fear – instead be courageous and shore up your personal strength.  There’s a blessing in every situation, and by focusing on finding that benefit, you are sure to discover it.

Do your best to see the Divine within everyone, within challenging situations, and within yourself.  There’s truly nothing to fear, there are only opportunities to grow, become stronger and more experienced, to develop higher self-esteem.

It’s never a good idea to run from conflict, but rather, face it with grace and love.   Ask for Heaven’s help, and it’s assured.

If you are in a difficult situation right now, it will resolve itself rapidly in a miraculous way.  Your role is to stay positive, speak your truth, and be brave.”
