Saturday Oracle – Vindication Of A Priestess

Intuition is a tricky business, especially when it comes to prophesy and destiny but this week what you have always known to be the truth will finally show signs of coming to pass.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, finds itself matched with the violet higher wisdom centre of the crown chakra in this week’s combination, heralding the uncovering of a loosely-cloaked secret which you have for some time, possibly even years, suspected.

Like the High Priestess in the tarot, this combination is promoting the intuitive side and even the defiance of logic and reason, meaning that your inner truth or a higher truth-as-yet-unrealised, that was long since given to you by spirit, perhaps by way of a dream or powerful inner guidance, the truth which you vehemently remained committed to even when all outward signs showed the contrary and all others lost faith in your vision and fell by the wayside, is about to be rewarded with evidence of blossoming.

This week is not about new intuition or psychic revelation, it is about the realisation of past Divine promises… the vindication of a priestess (or priest of course).

Divination, prophesy, destiny as I said, are somewhat ephemeral and so don’t expect the reality to play out like a carbon copy of what you originally predicted. This is in fact a good thing. Time has rolled on and energy has been gathering around this manifestation since it was first born as a ghost of an inclination whispered to you by the Great Cosmic Presence. You’ve been adding to and moulding its inception without understanding the physics behind the phenomenon of the observer causing the outcome simply by observing, piling your expectations into the creative mix which all have a co-creative effect.

Behind a precariously draped metaphorical curtain is the still-unfolding result of this long held vision… and this week the curtain will fall… at least partially.

What should you do?

More prophecies have been intuited in the age since this one, this is only the beginning. The true High Priestess is the passive feminine energy of the cosmos and so you mustn’t cajole or force the curtain, gravity will do that… but when the time comes to act, you must be ready to jump in and flow, fully understanding that all prophesy is self-fulfilling and that Destiny requires your participation in order to come about.

On that note, ask yourself this: Do we have free will? And moreover, are we manipulating Destiny or is Destiny manipulating us? Baring in mind the universe whispered the dream to you in the first place… (or did your soul-self whisper the dream to the universe which responded by telling the conscious you what it had heard)?

Don’t waste too much time on this chicken and egg conundrum, instead feel blessed that you were right all along.

An Invocation for Grace and Mercy

I’ve been working with angelic help for years now, but I’m not the most obedient student! Although I endeavour to serve as the Divine wishes, bearing in mind that we are the Divine and so in effect the angels are always guiding us towards our own wishes or at least the highest version of them, if I can’t see or imagine or indeed understand the path I’m on then it’s my tendency to dig my heels right in and rebel.

Trust is the ability to let someone or something else lead and in order to be a follower you either have to be completely asleep or you have to be awake enough to trust that giving up control is the easiest and fastest way to get where you want to be… yes that’s a contradiction and yes that’s the dilemma.

What if the angels, messengers of God, were asking you to give up control to another fallible human being because somehow your fate was wrapped up in theirs and at this point along the journey your desired outcome was dependent upon allowing them to take the lead, could you? Would you?

In a much broader sense we are doing that at every moment of every day, we allow others to make our laws, uphold them, govern our societies etc… these are all about giving up control on a slightly less personal but still relevant scale, but what I’m attempting to address here is a much more intimate and individual type of leader/follower relationship and it messes with your head in Grail terms because it’s a fine balancing act… that masculine/feminine dynamic.

I’ve come to a crossroads where the angels have recognised after hearing many an invocation for grace and mercy from me that I’m finding this part of the mission excruciating and that the cost feels too high… enter Archangel Samael, without whom free will (or at least the appearance of it) would not be available to us. Light without shadow  affords us only one choice and to embrace my whole self I must learn to dance in the shadows whilst I choose the light… poetic eh? Practically speaking it means I AM Human (Principle 3) and therefore have limits to what I can tolerate.

Archangel Samael has been working with me since last Thursday helping me to review my choices and even to get a clearer picture of where I’m trying to make choices where no real choice exists. It’s an exhausting process when you’re attached to an outcome, highlighting my need to immerse myself into  further study of Principle 2: I AM Detached.

Here’s the thing: We serve The Divine; we are The Divine, we therefore serve our own highest good. Good.

We choose the outcome and The Divine moves us towards that intention (Divine this time meaning us and including the entire universe)… Free will then consists of one question and one question only: do you want what you say you want? Because if you do, this is what it’s going to take to get it.

Let me rephrase the last question… do you want it enough? Me? I don’t know… hence the crossroads. I’ll let you know what I decide (when and if I decide). There are gentler angelic helpers if you want to undertake a similar examination of your direction but Samael deals with shifting a stubborn black and white mindset. He’s not your average fluffy winged being.

I’ll be back with some more insights from the path on Monday but in the meantime look out for the free group oracle reading on Saturday… x

This Great Game

Everything you are worrying about right now is an option and the current options available to you are thus: there’s the easy way and there’s the hard way. These two options and these two options only are what go entirely towards making up what we term free will. There is a much greater plan at work here, and if you understand that you also understand that it means that all the chess pieces are destined to be at a certain position at a certain time by divine decree.

Whether you are a king, a queen, a pawn or a knight, you have a role to play in this great game and the way you play your role determines the depth and intensity of the game… but you’ll get where you’re going one way or another.

Worrying about which direction to choose is simply you choosing the hard way, the less enjoyable way. It’s a massive drain on your energy and even if you do get round to making a decision, the worry has robbed you of some of the joy of advancing across the board and then the best you can hope for is relief… though relief isn’t unpleasant, it isn’t exactly the ecstasy you were hoping for either, is it.

I want to liken this feeling to the teenagers out there undertaking their exams around now. Remember back to when you took yours and ask yourself how many times you’ve used that particular information and whether you would be living a different existence now if you had failed? We put too much pressure on ourselves to get it right. Too much pressure on each other for that matter.

You’re going where you’re going and it doesn’t matter how you get there. Just for today, as an experiment, give it up to God and the angels to deal with the details… stick the whole situation in your “Too Difficult” bucket and surrender to the flow. Let spirit choose your next move on life’s chessboard.

Principle 2: I AM Detached.

The Creative Director

Grail Oracle 1Grail Oracle Orange

There is a fire that burns within you. At times this fire merely glows like a candle flame, lighting the way toward the next, or attracting that other towards itself. At times it rages, burning so hot that it hurts, and then there are times when it feels as though it has been all-but extinguished… but the flame is always burning. This power within is a force for good or evil, a tool for creation or a means of destruction, a universal energy built into every human being and its essence is that which imitates infinity.

The Creative Director, a combination of Principle 1: I AM God and the orange sacral chakra energy is the recognition of the power to create or destroy within each of us and the responsibility excepted or declined to initiate proper use of that energy.

This week you may find yourself in position where you can use your own creativity to help and inspire others, and to overcome problems with solutions that are “outside the box.” This is a week to do things differently than you have done them before, to look from a different angle and build something that has the potential to change the course of your life, someone else’s life or the lives of many. There is an air of uncertainty as you  enter into a contract with Source, a bargain which reads like this: “I’ll provide you with the opportunity, the resources and the means but you must then do something new with it, you must act with confidence and justly to bring about a profound shift.”

So what are you going to do?

Remember that free will allows you to either create or destroy, to bring together or break apart… that fire burns within you but the gift of this fire must be understood, tamed and channelled for good, should that be your will, and as a Grail Knight, that should be your will… but should is a word that overrides free will and that just will not do.

Choose and direct your power, its yours to do with what you WILL.
