In a continuing (but not at all surprising) trend, our channeled message and daily draw (back within the card altar’s regular rotation) are entirely interconnected.

             The view that I woke up with today was not a comfortable one.  It had an almost resigned feel about it.  Devoid of fear or negativity, though.

Say this, 

do that.

             Are you all familiar with the phrase, “talking out of both sides of their mouth?”  Because, it’s not a compliment.  And that’s what it felt like.  Not an insult, exactly.  But not really nice, either.

             Like, “oh I’ll say it’s one way, but I’ll actually live my life another way” sort of attitude.  The do as I say, not as I do concept.  Not QUITE being a hypocrite, but certainly leaning in that direction.

             After yesterday’s reassurance, this new information seems opposing, or in conflict.  It’s not.  It is simply ALSO what we need to hear at this time.

             In fact, let’s look at both views, so we can best gauge where our focus needs to be.

Desert Prince false promises

“The Desert Prince  ~  19  ~

survival, false promises


When you stumble upon the Desert Prince, you receive a gift.  The plant life that exists in the desert environment is well defended, tough, and succulent even though it gets little to no water.   In spite of external conditions, extraordinary life can form and thrive.

Be tough, have courage, and dare to dream no matter what the circumstances.  It may seem to be a hard time, but not only will you survive – you will thrive.  

In spite of conditions, you’ll succeed.  Dry spells are also true tests of faith and courage.  Expect nothing less than what is in your most precious dreams and watch miracles manifest.


Don’t be fooled by the beauty of the Desert Prince now, for you are being faced with a mirage.  Sometimes you cannot see the truth because your thirst for achievement and recognition may blind you to the true nature of your situation.

Perhaps, too, circumstances prevent you from being able to see with clarity.  Beware when faced with something that seems too perfect, miraculous, and easy.  If you think it’s too good to be true, it is.

Pay attention to false promises at this time.  Don’t be swayed by shortcuts and flattery.  The best way out of this is to accept that every life has a desert period – just accept this for now, and cross it one step at a time.

You will be led to green pastures and fresh, clean water with Divine appropriate timing.”
