Saturday Oracle – To Stake A Claim

Ownership is at the forefront of The Intuitive Chalice Oracle’s combination for this week as Principle 5: I AM Liberated grabs a hold of the royal blue throat chakra…

But what exactly is ownership?

Traditionally when this Principle shows up its a warning against material attachments and the price you end up paying to maintain them, but ownership extends beyond “things.” What If ownership is more to do with vocalising who you are, what you want, and what your expectations are? What if ownership was about saying out loud: “This is me, this is who I am, this is all that there is… if you want it take it, if you don’t then stay the f**k out of my face because you need my permission to take a piece of me!”

Sounds aggressive I know but it’s actually a phrase that I first said aloud over 20 years ago when I realised who I AM is enough.

So what if this combination is the ultimate in owning who you are?

The energy of course has a flip side, in this case that would be someone else’s powerful words being used to stake a claim over you or anything that is yours. Not so comfortable a feeling, eh?

As this week moves ahead and we embrace the full moon energy in Libra, the sign of balance and fairness, sharing and relationships, it’s worth taking the time to assess what it is exactly that you are staking a claim to… if it’s your own power, divinity and creativity then you’re activating the positive energy available here, if however your words seek to enslave, entrap, belittle or in any way diminish another, then the negative traits of ownership are already beginning to take a hold… seek a win/win scenario in all your interactions.

You have the power now to be all you can be… own it.

You also have the power now to free others… if it isn’t yours, release it.

Saturday Oracle – The Waiting Room

Principle 4: I AM Truth continues to hold dominance this week as it turns inwards shrouded in the deep indigo of the 3rd eye or brow chakra. This combination from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle is reminiscent of Hexagram 61 from the ancient Chinese I-Ching, “Inner Truth.”

You have no option this week but to face up to things as they actually are when the fuzzy edges between fantasy and reality become starkly obvious.

Let’s be honest, it’s been apparent for a while now that you have been in a holding pattern while the world around you has continued to turn, like sitting in the waiting room entranced by illusion, or more accurately, creating your own within your mind.

Inner truth is a gift, though for a while it may not appear so, simply because reality, or at least the current appearance of it in the material plane, will not resemble the happy place you’ve created in your mental waiting room. How could it? You’ve not been paying attention to the details of the outside environment and so they may have gone wildly off plan. But the gift of having the waiting room walls melt in the light of this week’s energy, is that once you see things for what they are you can begin to create change.

Maybe you realise that whilst you’ve been daydreaming about Tom Hardy, your real relationships have become distant? Whilst you’ve been imagining sipping champagne on a private yacht, you’ve ignored the pile of bills that need paying? Or whilst you’ve been indulging in a distracting social life, your health has been suffering? Perhaps you have been in denial about your career prospects but refused to change direction, so heavily are you invested in the rapidly faltering image you’ve created in your mind about success?

I’m a firm believer in The Law of Attraction and the need to visualise where you want to be as if you’re already there, feeling how you’ll feel when it comes to pass in the physical realm. I’m not suggesting you give up that practice… but there is a big difference between using the visualisation technique as a tool, and disappearing into it like Alice down the rabbit hole.

Your 3rd eye is a powerful tool and by feeding it truth this week you can begin to transform reality into a miracle. Only by admitting where you are can you plot a course with your Higher Power to a new destination that you no longer need to hide in the waiting room from.

Stop escaping and check in with reality… before reality bites.

Saturday Oracle – Truth Will Out

Truth will out this week as the authenticity contained in Principle 4: I AM Truth, embraces and communicates the same through the royal blue throat chakra. This combination is a bit like a double threat, but it’s a good one.

Some of the Grail Principles have a chakra twin, like this one, and that makes the combination more powerful… let me dissect them for you:

I AM Truth sets out an affirmation of acknowledgment of who you are and what feels right to you in your current state of evolution and from your current perspective. Though many people share similar beliefs, no two are ever exactly concurrent, simply because truth is viewed through and coloured by the eyes of experience and no two beings will ever have the same view. That being said, what’s true for you today may be transformed tomorrow by the introduction of new information… that’s why I like to add in a proviso with Principle 4 that says “I reserve the right to evolve.”

The throat chakra is the centre for communication and co-creation. When something is spoken it begins to take form because it’s moving from the realms of a private thought or idea and into the public domain. This goes for the written word too. Words are magic spells that can be used to harm or to heal, to create or to destroy and when engaging the throat chakra it should be done with caution and compassion….

But, in order to fully embrace this weeks oracle combination it should done without artifice, with absolute honesty.

Who you are, who you are willing to be, how you wish to be portrayed and what you want to be understood this week deserves nothing less than your truth. It’s a scary prospect putting it out there. Others may not agree, they may attempt to discredit you, they may attempt to claim your truth to be incorrect or even claim it as their own as has happened to me in the last few weeks…. but the facts remain the same: you have nothing to prove, nobody to convince and everything to gain by speaking out.

It’s worth noting that this coming week’s new moon in Aries is the first of the zodiac year and portends new beginnings and clean slates, but with Venus still in retrograde those new beginnings could have you in relationship reboot as you are presented with an ex who appears on the surface to have transformed from a sinner to a saint. With this combination make sure you are hearing truth from another before you fall for any bullshit. Though evolution of truth is high on the agenda and new understanding is possible, history and actions shouldn’t be ignored. Your truth has to override any proposition until evidence and corroboration is given.

Protection can be sought from Archangel Michael just by asking, and he will wrap you in his royal blue cloak, guide you towards safety and help you choose your words and actions wisely and for everyone’s highest good.

Have an open and honest week… x

Saturday Oracle – Too Much Of A Good Thing

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

After last week’s oracle encouraged us to embrace the wild side, this week’s combination seems a little concerned that we might just go from indulgence to over-indulgence to compulsive and addictive negative behaviours.

Principle 3: I AM Human teams up with the bright yellow solar plexus to bring us a bit of a dual message here: on the one hand there’s the addiction to potential self-abuse which I’ll come to in a moment and on the other, there’s the underlying reason for it… failed expectations.

The solar plexus is the seat of personal power and the house of the ego. When it takes a metaphorical beating it seeks to self-sooth and suppress that feeling. People take to all sorts of numbing techniques to achieve this from overeating, shopaholism, alcoholism and drug abuse to name but a few… what start out as a fun time, a treat or an indulgence, when taken to the extreme, become a dangerous spiral towards self-destruction.

As this week opens, so too do potential reminders of personal failure and disappointment that will, while you’re attempting to escape from or forget, have you racing towards the distractions, that you hope will fill the gaping hole that seems to be forming in the pit of your stomach.

There is a way back to balance and it begins with recognising your patterns. Principle 3: I AM Human, is a key reminder of the need for forgiveness, first and foremost of self. When you acknowledge that you are human and therefore perfectly imperfect, you give yourself permission to let go of the self punishment. Forgiveness is not an ideal its a healing aspect of grace, but it takes the courage to first admit that some things are out of your control… like the past… like the future… There is a much bigger energy at play than the human aspect of each of us as individuals and when we bow to this Higher Power, admit to the pain we’ve been until now trying to numb and allow this all encompassing energy fully into our lives, Spirit fills the spaces with pure light and love and there is nothing left to try to fill….

This is the true meaning of an overflowing cup… (not the one you filled with calories or worse as a substitute).

Let God in.

Saturday Oracle – Warrior Priestess

As the Full Moon in Virgo takes centre stage this weekend so too does the emergence of the inner goddess, the warrior priestess, and with her a full blown sexual revolution.

Principle 3: I AM Human takes full ownership of the orange sacral chakra in this combination and as a result the shadow aspect of hidden desire is brought fully into the light celebrating the physical human self in sacred sexuality. Playful and every-so-slightly naughty Fae energy is driving this full week leading up to St Patrick’s Day next weekend, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the Goddess Aine is asserting herself wherever she can (but more about that later in the week).

For too long femininity has been required to fit into a ┬áneat little box, remaining demure, weak, downtrodden and conforming to the social expectations of “stand like this” “present yourself like that” and any attempt to claim one’s full powerful has been met with disdain and often shame… no more.

As this sweeping energy gathers momentum it brings with it a continuing theme of innocence, not in the childlike sense but more aligned with a lack of contrivance. Owning your power, your gorgeous, spectacular, sexy self is not about suppressing anyone else, it has nothing to do with the emasculation of our men folk, on the contrary, those men who truly own their own inner god/warrior priest (which this energy also anticipates) are not threatened by the surge of power shown by their women, they are positively inspired and turned on by it.

It’s time to let go of the constraints and revel in your humanity. Rising to this call to unleash your shadow can make you irresistible as long as you don’t try to be all things to all people… some won’t like you being so overt, some will attempt to put you back in your box… forgive yourself for being afraid up until this point, forgive them for being afraid of what comes next and let loose the kundalini rising within.

This week is not about being irresponsible, it’s about being powerful and allowing the fun version of you that hasn’t been seen in a long time to get up and get down… after all, she’s magical.

Unleash your warrior priestess and reclaim all of who you are.

Saturday Oracle – A Glance Back Towards Yesterday

Principle 4: I AM Truth is standing on the precipice of the vibrant orange sacral chakra this week asking for you to reclaim your integrity within a close relationship or following the end of one as you’re guided to take a glance back towards yesterday.

I wasn’t surprised by this combination as my vague knowledge of astrology is very aware that Venus is turning retrograde around now and being the planet of love, desire, passion, relationships, intimacy and connecting, all the things associated with the sacral chakra they in a highlighted position at present. The idea that the celestial love goddess appears in the sky to be travelling backwards doesn’t invite you to go backwards as such but instead to review and reflect with a view to heal. But that’s enough astrology, let’s get back to the Principle in question…

I AM Truth. What the heck does that mean?

Inside you, at a deep level you have access to your own truth. Some of us have buried it under blame, projection, deflection, ego, anger and a few other useless emotions and tactics that help us to avoid taking responsibility for where we are and how we got here.

Something valuable, I’d go as far as to say beautiful, has been lost because the truth was painful. Owning your truth even if it’s potentially going to be scorned upon by others is sign that your Grail and your self-esteem are intact. The opinions of others are just that, and though it may be true for them it doesn’t have to be so for you. Your actions have had consequences and you’ve cast aside the opportunity for unity, connection, intimacy, friendship, co-creation and commitment, even family because your pride had you lashing out to protect your reputation… underneath all the bluster you knew what was true but you chose to destroy something, someone. It may not be as dramatic as that… you’ll know when you glance back with compassion, for yourself if for nobody else.

This week’s energy flow has potential. I said at the beginning that this Principle is standing on a precipice, does that mean you can fix it? Retrograde Venus is hoping you will learn from it for sure but the other party has drawn a line and you have no way of crossing it now. A negative aspect of Principle 4 is that communication is all but blocked so attempting to rescue the remains of what’s been lost is damn near impossible. But this reading is about learning so that you can apply truth to all your dealings. Understanding how to open yourself up to emotional intimacy is about understanding that in vulnerability lies strength. The most magical relationship is the one in which there is no blame, where honesty is a given not a currency to be traded and where the more ammunition you give your loved one the more bullets they have to protect your love with instead of loading the gun and firing it at you.

Now then, since the new moon last week, we have entered a portal in which the end of a karmic cycle occurs. It remains open, like the precipice, until the full moon on the 12th March. I suggest you take a leap of faith, dive into the orange abyss and retrieve you… that way when the next potential love affair enters your orbit, all of you, your entire being will be ready to enter the arena and surrender to another human being who is ready to surrender to you.

Right I’m off to celebrate and eat cake with my lovely mum who is 80 years young today!

Saturday Oracle – The Welcome Mat

Dealing with emotional pain is a very personal journey and there are no real rules on how to protect yourself from further assail, but there are common markers along the road to healing.

This week’s combination, bringing together a matching energetic set: Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted and the emerald green of the heart chakra, are highlighting a part of that process that is crucial to your forward journey.

You are being asked, as we step into a week containing a powerful new moon and a solar eclipse, to look at the walls you have furnished around your emotional centre as a result of recent tribulations and more poignantly, how those walls may affect new relationships.

Self-preservation is a serious business and hardwired into human circuitry, meaning any and all risks that follow pain, that may result in more of the same, are understandably cut off at the pass. The wounded heart certainly doesn’t roll out the welcome mat to would be assailants…

…But you’re being warned this week that you are seeing threats where there are friends and allies, and in searching for safe haven you may be creating a prison or isolation you won’t want to remain inside for long.

Love is being offered to you in more than one form in the days ahead. Do not be tempted to lock out the very thing you need because having been a victim of another’s character flaws forces you to become a victim of your own.

I AM Open-Hearted is the Principle of the true Grail Knight, the true hero who lets love be the guiding light in all interactions. You are being called to step into the light of absolute faith, trust and surrender to the highest power of all… nobody will blame you for being cautious, that’s your right, but you have the power within you to win. Nobody can put out your light, that is the Divine shining through you and it is inextinguishable.

New life is knocking at your door, the door to your heart… open up and give it a chance to prove it is worthy of touching heaven, because that what lives inside your love. Heaven.

Saturday Oracle – The Storyteller’s Spell

I’ve agonized over whether or not to post the group oracle this week as events have compromised my work in the last few days but as the first card in this combination recommends, I AM Detached.

This week’s pairing brings together Principle 2 with the currently trending indigo brow chakra forming a powerful pull towards an old storyline.

Self fulfilling prophesy is a significant danger in the next few days as we revisit the patterns of the past that we had worked so hard to break free of. The Storyteller’s spell is an enchantment that we weave every time we repeat the pattern or speak of it, rehashing the old emotion and the associated wounds into new forms and faces with a familiar end game: a wheel of repetition.

When the 3rd eye or brow chakra is subjected to the same old movie running the same old script, it finds ways in the external world to have them play out… The Law of Attraction showing up for you exactly the way your mind prescribes it.

Principle 2: I AM Detached is the saving grace here, as is the purpose of each of the Principles of The Wholly Grail, by following the guidance of the defining Principle you have the power to break free from what seems like overwhelming odds to choose something different. Detachment is the art of separating yourself from a past you cannot change and a future that is not yet written, reinstating the power here in the present moment to create a different mental movie of a positive prophesy.

Look for areas of your life that throw up familiar challenges, people who push the same buttons and relationships with a “let’s go round again” feel to them. It would also be advantageous to monitor your thoughts for a while and see where you are placing your attention and worrying over details and outcomes, and then replace them with positive prayer and affirmations.

Call on Archangel Zadkiel this week to help you get the message once and for all where you have been learning through repetition in order to break the cycle, and also to ask for him to bring violet flame energy to transmute negative situations. Archangel Raphael to cleanse the 3rd eye chakra and heal unhealthy habits and addictions, and Archangel Raguel to mediate an therefore heal any conflicts that keep coming up for you.

Keep your chin up until next time… x

Saturday Oracle – Limitless Inner Cosmos

This week’s combination comes with an overwhelming feeling… it’s the sensation of knowing, knowing beyond intellectual comprehension that you are a limitless inner cosmos.

Principle 3: I AM Human, fully integrates the violet essence of the crown chakra and it suddenly becomes possible to transcend perceived human potential. Ask yourself this: what are you truly capable of?

There is an aspect of this combination that denotes divine grace and even mercy when all previous constraints and limitations are removed and heaven, through you or a fellow human being begins to move mountains. The image here is of the mother lifting a car off her trapped child with apparent superhuman strength in a moment where her objective, motivated by unconditional love removes all physical inadequacies to produce a miracle.

Though the energy may not play out as dramatically as that in your own life, you may not actually part the Red Sea or resurrect a random stranger, you should see seemingly insurmountable odds being beaten this week and all in the name of love.

Love is the highest purpose in the universe (as far as I can tell) and nothing can withstand its absolute power. Any action you take in the next few days, unconditionally, will not only be blessed but be facilitated by angels (even those in human form).

Count forgiveness amongst your superhero armoury too as its energy rips down barriers, builds bridges and connects the disconnected. What with this full moon, new year comet and the power created by the masses focused on the energy of love for Valentine’s Day, though romance is not the message of this week’s reading, deeper love, spiritual love, soul love is highlighted as being the one thing that releases us from our self imposed bondage to become the masters of our own experience and rise up… rise up to meet ourselves as we were designed to be.

When your higher self has full access to your mind and physical vessel, you embody Christ Consciousness and you finally understand that you are completely loveable and loved… and when you are loved, you are invincible.

Welcome to a week of the most powerful you.

More later… x

Saturday Oracle – You Achieve What You Believe

The trend continues in this week’s group oracle reading as Principle 4: I AM Truth matches up with the currently popular indigo of the 3rd eye or brow chakra bringing back into focus (excuse the pun) your visioning process.

Having undone the shackles of last week’s post its now time to redefine what you believe is possible in order to realign your manifesting potential with your ultimate dreams.

Truth is a subjective topic. What feels true for me may not feel true for you and so it is important at this time that the world you are creating in your mind is built upon your own personal ideals rather than what someone else tells you to believe, or you think they would like you to believe. It’s by aligning your intentions with your authentic self, the process of creation takes off at speed and you begin to be propelled into the universal flow of miracles.

Get clear this week on a few things: Who you truly are, who you truly want to become, what your hopes and dreams are, what you would really like to create, build or achieve… then, once you have gotten the basics straight in your mind, turn your attention to highlighting where you have been living someone else’s truth. The decisions you’ve been making that are pulling you in the direction of another’s vision of what would be best for you are probably taking you away from your highest good. It’s easy to see where you are not in alignment with your authentic life because that’s where you feel unhappiness, that’s where the obstacles are densest and your momentum is blocked, that’s where life is stagnating and you’re being held apart from your most amazing adventures.

Get busy with the ground work this week… you owe it to yourself to be clear about what you are co-creating with Source, and as soon as you are, and as soon as it matches your authentic vibration, He’s going to pull out all the stops and line up all the synchronicities to get you there… your cosmic limo awaits, so you better know exactly where you want it to deliver you.
