The Only Constant

             Ah, the journey.  The expedition which is Life.   We row our boats, we struggle against currents, we roll over the waves, we ride in shallow or deep water, we pull up to shore, taking on supplies.  Sometimes we even allow passengers.

             In the end though, the adventure is ours.  It’s how we feel, and how we deal.

             Also, it’s never the trip we think it’s going to be.  Right now, what I’m hearing most is, we won’t really understand this until we are past it.  But we need to BE in it while it is all happening.

             Here’s what the Universe wants us to be pay close attention to……

perfect timing, living the experience.

             As we all tread water, holding our own through this transitional time (on a personal, as well as global scale) we must truthfully embrace the movement.  Must not fight against the tide.  Honestly, it is a Universal Truth, we need to know (deep in our hearts) that we can never be led astray.

             THIS is our chosen path, so we have to walk it intentionally.  In as graceful and a loving manner as possible.  If there are rough patches, turbulent water?  Well, we accept those, stay in our boats, not letting the set-backs define us.

             Just as on our card altar, we are reminded of how spiritual notifications appear, precisely when and where we need them most.

“Notice the Signs  ~

‘Yes, the signs you’ve been receiving are heaven-sent.  We drop feathers, and other signs upon your path to remind you that you’re loved and never alone.’

The angels give you this card to help you understand the signs you have been receiving lately.

Additional meanings:

Your departed loved ones are saying, ‘hello!  I love you!’

Notice and believe in the repetitive signs you receive as validation that you’re on the right path.

Have faith.

Follow the signs that are guiding you to your heart’s desire.”

is to recommend you do some googling in the next week or so.  We’ve got a Mercury Retrograde coming up in early April.  Best to be aware.

Against any darkness…..

             This week has been a personally challenging one, (the reasons are many).  There are simply aspects of our lives which we worry about and have no control over.  Well, we have no control over ANYthing, really.  But some bits do cause us more stress than others.

             I was certainly searching for something to uplift us all, when I recently came across this illustrator.  As I pondered the displays (and wondered why I was drawn here), it became obvious that we needed to add another selection to our collected works on the altar.

             A few days ago, it arrived.  Perfect timing!  Here’s what the backs look like.

             As I sat with them, listening and shuffling and spreading them around to get their feeling, the first message they sent us arrived.  It’s about hope, and not letting the garbage get us down.

oracle of the angels

“The Eternal Light of Love  ~  25

The eternal light of love permeates everything in existence and fills every atom of our being.  This means light and love are always present in every situation, regardless of whether we can perceive it or not.  

There is love, and even a hidden blessing, within a current situation.

Trust.

All that is occurring is for your highest good.  Look beyond the surface and appearance of things.

Affirmation:

I trust in the eternal light of love which stems from my soul and the heart of all creation.  I trust in the eternal light and love within every situation I find myself in.  I trust in the Divine light.”

             This is an excellent (and auspicious!) reminder, which I will absolutely carry with me in to next week.  (I’ll probably LITERALLY carry the card in my pocket every day……. because, ya know, I’m tactile like that.)

Gratitude and Beyond

            In my reading and research recently, I came across a phrase that really felt special,  I hadn’t ever thought of my situation on those terms, so it was inspiring.

             This morning that all returned, in the form of our message.  As we set our intentions, at the start of every day (we’re all doing that, right?), let’s remember to go after our dreams . . . .

or something better.

             Because, even as we visualize “the next best” step or action to take on our path, we can leave the future open to new, and as yet unimagined, possibilities.

             Stepping away from our regular rotation around the card altar on this day of thanks, we are presented with this complementary principle, reminding us of other angles and views.

mouse scrutiny

“Mouse  ~  2  ~  Scrutiny

There is a fable that tells of a Mouse who once freed a Lion securely fastened by rope bindings.  The Lion had initially scoffed at the Mouse’s timid offer of assistance, suggesting that if a mighty and brave Lion could not break the ropes then what chance did a Mouse have of doing better?  The Mouse insisted and, little by little, chewed through the knots to eventually set the Lion free.

The Mouse reminds us that if we look at life from varying vantage points, remain vigilant, and take one step at a time, checking our progress regularly, we will never be hindered by trouble.

The Mouse is small and wily enough to go through life without being detected.  Although he lives a life of cunning and deceit, his wisdom is offered today in the form of awareness.  

He teaches us to be ever alert to the tell tale signs that things are not as they should be.  Mouse is mindful of never ignoring the small, seemingly insignificant details that threaten to haunt him later.  He is aware that he may some day feel the searing pain of Owl’s talons in his back should he become complacent and let his guard down.

Mouse uses his keen sense of smell to constantly test the air for danger.  He allows his whiskers to touch everything in his path as a way of checking that all is as it should be.

If Mouse has appeared in your cards you are being encouraged to touch everything with your symbolic whiskers, particularly when signing agreements or contracts, or when considering new projects, proposals, or ventures involving other parties.  

Mouse reminds us to remain vigilant to the smaller aspects first and to check for pitfalls or hidden opportunities before rushing into anything.

Mouse promises that scrutiny will ensure we never overlook the obvious.  He demonstrates that even those who have very little influence in the way of the world can reach places of prominence if they hold great expectations.

Mouse reveals quite effectively that sometimes strength of mind prevails over strength of body.  Answers to difficult situations often lie in how the problems are perceived.”

Adjustments

             The feeling of our messages has begun to turn.  (But slowly.)  The impression I’m getting is that we are working through emotions, on our way to someplace better.

             Interestingly, what I woke up with today had a similar attitude to a new program* we watched last night.

*I keep saying “no new shows!” but the circumstances of this one are special.  It’s really an extension of the same person, but with not-famous people.

             What their experience was on that episode was not at all how my views were represented, but the end result gave off the same vibe.

from Suspicion to Celebration

             Our conditioned responses are so very difficult to overcome.  And yet, it IS entirely possible to do precisely that.

            Instead of instantly disbelieving and reacting with a pre-loaded negative, we are all capable of Accepting, Acknowledging, and for the good of all, positively replying in a loving and kind way.  We are, we absolutely are.

            As I was sitting down to make my notes, I was directed to leave our regular rotation for the daily draw.  Now I see why, this is the perfect accompaniment.

archangel sandalphon gentleness

“Gentleness  ~

Archangel Sandalphon:

‘Be very gentle with yourself at this time.  Surround yourself with gentle people, situations, and environments.’

Additional Message:

Sandalphon wishes to help you feel peaceful and centered, and he strongly advises that you begin by listening to gentle music.  Play it wherever you go.

             Talk quietly, and engage in slow, rhythmic movements such as swaying to music or a gentle yoga session.  Don’t engage in battles at this time.

Instead, retreat from conflict while you revive your spirit and become even stronger.  Delay decisions right now, too.  You will know exactly what to do when you emerge from your gentle retreat.

Working with Archangel Sandalphon:

Sandalphon’s aura is a calming and cool shade of turquoise, like the translucent tropical ocean.   Meditate upon this color, or hold the stone associated with this energy – turquoise – and feel your heart rate and breathing become quieter.

Sandalphon can help your words and actions to be kind and gentle, yet powerful.  As the archangel associated with music, you can feel his presence strongly when you listen to music, sing, or play a musical instrument.”

Today’s Affirmation:

I am in the process of a healing and positive change.

.

Sometimes, it just Is.

             For the past few nights, my dreams and visions have been filled with an uncomfortable mix of depressed and melancholic mood.  Not pleasant.

            Also, not sure where it’s all coming from, or even really, where it needs to go.  I’m feeling fine!  But clearly, that’s not what this is about.

            Being able to receive the images that I get, is never about me.  Obviously, it’s about others.  It’s about YOU!  (And to that end, I came across an enormously helpful tool yesterday, which will be at the end of this post.)

             Here’s what we need to address right now:

dealing with disappointment.

             On our path to Acceptance, not all of the travel-stops will be gardens and parks and fun rides.  Some pauses by the wayside will be somber spots.  Areas of contemplation and sadly, loss.

             Since we know how Joy feels, and it’s NOT the same as this, we have to understand that there is purpose to these intermissions of grief.  To sit in them, and absorb the fullness of it is the way through and out.

             There are merely times which we will be unhappy.  And that’s a fact (not a punishment).  Both sides of emotion are the ultimate Universal Truth.  It’s our reaction and healing that matters now.

             And within our regular rotation around the card altar we have a very soothing and uplifting illustration, with such a positive message to accompany it, we can’t help but be reminded of the duality (and circular movements) in all of Life.

             Never forget, there is always Hope, and there is always Tomorrow.

prosperity oracle card

“Cultivating Prosperity  ~

‘The abundance of the Universe is pouring into my life!’

Card Meaning: 

A stream of abundance is ready to flow into your life, but you need to take action to receive it.  Believe that you deserve it.  Take steps forward by planting seeds for your future prosperity.

The Universe wants you to know:

Right now you are moving toward receiving an outpouring of money, energy, time, and love.  However, you must first know that you deserve it . . . and you do.

Take action in the direction of your dreams.  This is not the time to passively wait for prosperity to fall into your lap.  Give deeply and fully of who you are and what you have, for the more you truly give, the more you will receive.

It is a universal law.  As you focus on gratitude for what you already have, your abundance will grow in leaps and bounds.

Questions to ask yourself:

Am I truly open and ready for abundance to flow into my life?  What could I do to cultivate even more riches?  Is there a symbol in my life that could give me insight into what blocks my prosperity?  What is it saying?

Affirmation:

The abundance of the Universe is pouring into my life.”
