First Monday Of The Month Challenge – Believing In Fairy Tales

Is it really April? Theses first Monday of the month challenge days seem to come along thick and fast and I’m wondering where the year is disappearing to?

Following on from the weekend’s oracle, I wanted to broach the subject of make believe and come at it from a slightly less pragmatic angle. No sooner had I posted the oracle on Saturday about distinguishing fact from fantasy and getting yourself firmly grounded in the real world, getting yourself out of denial if you like, than the universe began encouraging me to do exactly the opposite!

I was reminded of a long lost dream I had as a teenager and invited to dream the dream anew in a more updated and creative way, bringing my imagination into the real world to see if I’d like to transform the fantasy into a reality now, or if I’d like to put it back in the box among the other lost or wasted wishes… The same evening I was transported into the world of a Disney princess as I, (popcorn in hand), was subjected to a friend singing the entire soundtrack through Beauty and the Beast at the cinema… and the two of us completely accepting the normality of a talking teapot and chipped cup (because obviously that happens every day)!

All this got me thinking about the magic of believing in fairy tales, and how Principle 7 of The Wholly Grail asks that we stay open-hearted… having experienced this transformation on April Fool’s Day only added to the magic when you begin to understand that the story of the fool in tarot, is the story of innocence, an open heart and a belief in magic.

So my challenge for you today is this: as you keep one foot in the real world, doing the things that you must, taking care of business and honouring your mundane responsibilities, I challenge you to see through to the unseen world and find your own magic. A dream today might become tomorrow’s reality with a little planning, hard work and a sprinkling of fairy dust… just don’t lose sight of which world you’re in!

Right I’m off to dispense some daughterly duties doing household chores for mum, (and I have just enough imagination and belief in fairy tales left to conjure a few of Snow White’s bluebirds to help me along).

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

Left Behind

They say timing is everything, (whoever they are). Synchronicity, a long term buzz word of the spiritual community describes being in the right place at the right time for the right things to happen… The rest of the world might call this pure coincidence but this all depends on your beliefs about a bigger picture and a Divine plan guiding your life.

Personally, I choose to believe in something bigger, but being human as I am (Principle 3), this belief often gets caught up in fearful thinking that there won’t be enough… enough time, enough resources, enough love, enough anything… that I’ll be in the wrong place, I’ll miss the opportunity and somehow I’ll get left behind.

Lack mentality, another self-help, spiritual buzz word, ┬áis the term used to describe this phenomenon of perceiving there will never be enough and its a catalyst for war, violence and hatred as we as a species scramble for the first place in the line… obviously I’m making reference to this Black Friday thing that everyone is talking about.

Just one day after Thanksgiving and we are suddenly as ungrateful as you can get in a “more, more, more” rush to get ahead just in case we miss out on something… something that we never actually wanted in the first place.

Despite my occasional tendencies towards forgetting that the universe has my share put aside for the exact moment when I need it, I’m giving this free-for-all a wide birth. I don’t remember the massive sales being a part of any nativity and the gifts that arrived in the stable didn’t come with a reduced sticker.

If I’m not in the right place at the right time for the right thing to happen then it was never the right place, the right time or the right event… synchronicity cannot be contrived, that defeats the object altogether. If you haven’t got it then you don’t need it, if you need it, the universe will deliver without you needing to fight for it.

Let this apply to all your wants in this moment and you will be truly blessed.

A Greater Dreaming

For the most part I keep Grail wisdom in the land of the everyday; focused on real life, real problems and a quest that most people can relate to, but occasionally I can’t help but wander into the land of myth, legend, mystery and allegory…

Magic has been sought by man for millennia as a way of lifting the spirit from the mundane to the miraculous and for those truly initiated in the field, once your eyes are open to real magik they can never be closed again. Once you have stepped through the veil, the illusion, everything is brighter, clearer and has an unreal quality to it that sets it apart from what you previously experienced to now recognise the dream…

Sure, in this dream there are demons as well as angels but unlike your time spent asleep, the time before you understood you were on a quest, the demons are easier to spot and you have a choice to stay away from them or to engage as a part of your adventure on the path. There are myriad helpers in the great unseen that once your eyes, heart and mind are open will emerge to help you float along through a greater dreaming toward whatever comes next, and any interaction with the other realms will either inspire you or render you speechless but either way you will be changed forever.

I created the Grail with the backdrop of a time when anything was possible, a time of Arthurian Knights, dragons and magik, not because it’s fantasy but because in a land where anything is possible so to are you, in any format that you choose… you can create the life that want, recreate the person you want to be, choose to believe in angels and faeries, dragons and mysterious cups, knights and chivalry… you can choose to build Camelot for yourself from wherever or whatever position you are currently in. That’s true magik.

The membership section of the site is currently under construction… if it were ready today and you were a member you would have access to the “Creating Camelot” programme to help you overhaul your life, plus today we’d be digging deeper into working with the higher realms… until it’s ready though…

I’m off to battle my real life demons with the aid of the faeries in my garden.
