The Butterfly Maiden

Grail Oracle 2Grail Oracle Yellow

Pondering this combination today, it makes sense for me to clarify how The Intuitive Chalice Oracle works. Its primary purpose when I created it, was for use as a healing and diagnostic tool to be applied with The Wholly Grail’s concept of creating a life that leans towards inner peace and joy, but later it became apparent that it is also effective as an oracle for predicting and prescibing the current flow of energies. In the case of the former, each combination has a negative interpretation because it denotes what is needed where, and therefore lack, but as an oracle it has both positive and negative interpretations and therefore can contain up to 100 combinations…

The Butterfly Maiden is a beautiful example of the positive aspect of this combination that contains Principle 2: I AM Detached and marries it up with the vibrant yellow of the Solar Plexus. In its negative context this would be a reading all about anxiety and worry caused by the impending unknown, but it isn’t… In fact it is a joyous feeling that as a professional stress-head, is completely alien to me most of the time…

Remember back to when you very first felt the brush of young love… the anticipation of possibility as romance took over your entire being and the transformative nature of the experience as you stepped from childhood into the dangerous first glimses of adulthood? Your mind awash with fantasies and dreams as you walked through your day feeling the spell you were under and yet not understanding or caring about the potential dangers… Yes… let’s talk about the dangers.

When The Butterfly Maiden steps into your life she brings firstly the promise of that transformation just like the butterfly emerging from the chrysalis, but the butterflies she’s more interested in are the ones that are dancing around in her tummy as the universe weaves it’s fantastical spell. Caution has to be advised here, not because your fantasies are about to crash and burn, goodness me, no… I’m not that pessimistic, in fact the outlook for receiving your heart’s desire, according to the current rush of energy is amazing, no, you need to be cautious because your entire energy is ungrounded whilst you exist inside your fantasy bubble. Your romantic notions are so dreamy that you are becoming detached from the outside world and increasingly clumsy with it… Can you remember what you went in the other room for? Did you just drive home, park on the drive and then think “How did I get here?” not remembering the entire journey?

You’re happy, you’re excited, your imagination is already doing the dance of romance.. but like any butterfly: you are delicate and ungrounded…

Now get your head back in the game and focus!

May The Butterfly Maiden bring you the miracle you’ve been waiting for.

More next week… x

The Willing Recipient

Grail Oracle 1Grail Oracle Yellow

I’ve been chomping at the bit today to explore this combination from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle for all of us, me included, because when I pulled the cards first thing this morning to contemplate, I had such a rush of excited enthusiasm about the way the energy is flowing.

Blending the first Principle: I AM God with the bright yellow energy of the Solar Plexus, The Willing Recipient is heralding a boon of unprecedented proportions arriving either energetically or tangibly from a benevolent Source. This gift is the universe’s way of compensating you for the work you’ve done thus far in arriving safely at your present location, experience safely translated into personal wisdom and packed into your toolkit for future use on the path.

We have come through a rough passage of late, many have been walking around dazed and confused since the new moon wondering why they feel the way they do… Somewhat baffled in fact by a sense of overwhelm detracted by a field of grace… Like you are wandering around thinking, “I should be depressed. To the outside world I might look and even sound depressed… but the absolute truth is I don’t feel depressed… but I dont know why I don’t!” Ridiculous as that sounds, being sensitive to energy flow, standing on a threshold of what’s done and what’s to be offered, knowing that now is the point when everything changes but not what changes are required…

I was privileged to work with one of my healing clients this afternoon (always a pleasure… you know who you are), and I described this sense of transition as being like the old Wheel of Fortune game show whereby you are the needle on the dial and the universe has just spun you around, you’re not in control of where that needle is going to land and there is nothing you can do until it stops spinning so you might as well let go and let God until such time as you come to a full stop and a real life opportunity to choose is placed in front of you…

Now this is the fun part (or not) because you have no idea what the choice is going to be and what area of your life it’s going to affect and if indeed it is a ‘gift’ then why is a choice involved at all? Well, because the universe is all about balance and that’s why you have been making space for this gift to arrive but, and it its a big but, you are going to have to make one final sacrifice in order to receive the bounty… I wish I could tell you what it is… I’m psychic but I’m not that good! Imagine if you will, a new baby, what a blessing? You will have to grow up, give up your freedom, take on the responsibility… see what I mean about a gift that brings with it sacrifice?

So why The Willing Recipient? Principle 1 is the quest for self-worth. An angel is going to turn up at your door this week (not literally, at least I don’t think so), and say “Special delivery for the resident Grail Knight” and you now have a choice, you can say “Oh yes that’s for me, Ive been expecting something wonderful, where do I sign?” or you can say “I’m not sure who it’s for… no Grail Knight’s here just surfs and waifs and the great unwashed” and though the angel knows damn well it’s a gift just for you, he’ll wing it back to the cosmic depot and report in to the Big Fella saying “Not ready to receive, delivery declined, the package was too much, too big, too…

Being worthy isn’t about hubris, its about the quiet acceptance that you are the Divine in human form and that He doesn’t make mistakes… When your angel shows up with a gift this week, no matter how big or small, simply say “Thank you, I’m not sure if I’m ready… but I AM Willing.” The needle will stop spinning and you can make your choices.

May your week ahead be filled with a thousand blessings… all of which you are worthy of.
