Saturday Oracle – The Beginning Of Wisdom

First let me say that this combination, though a little too frequent for my liking, is not in any way a surprise. When I turned over the cards of The Intuitive Chalice Oracle today they all but jumped out to greet me and here’s what notion immediately entered my mind…

On my short walk back home yesterday from the local supermarket, where I had been picking up some supplies for a workshop I’m running on Monday, I had what my mum would term “a funny turn.” Now you must understand that there is nothing in the least bit funny about feeling unwell at any time but halfway across a busy road through the middle of a woodland carrying heavy shopping bags is even less amusing… I stopped as soon as I reached the pavement, put down my shopping and focused all my attention on my breathing until I began to feel grounded again, quickly calling in my angelic helpers to “fly” me home safely… I don’t remember much more of the walk but I remember arriving at the front door and feeling relieved to have made it in one piece… my body isn’t happy and the oracle is suggesting that problem is rife among us this week.

It’s really cliche at New Year for us to be talking about resolutions and getting healthy and I was determined not to do it, (talk about it I mean), that was until I flipped this combination of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full and the blood red base chakra. Your body is about to start screaming for your attention if it hasn’t already, and right now is the time to listen.

Health issues are once again the focus as we step not just into a new week but into a brand new year. Evidently too much indulging combined with a recent cascade of shocks, both media and personal, have taken a toll and we are all in need of some self-imposed TLC. For me personally, I try to eat at home as much as possible where I can prepare fresh and healthy foods, but over the Christmas period I’ve been privileged to have been fed by some beautiful friends and family and in attempting to be a gracious guest, the result is my diet has included increased wheat and refined sugar, swamping my system with a whole load of stuff I’m sensitive too and its rebelling big time.

Be gentle with yourself if you are starting to feel overly tired, sluggish or unwell… any symptoms you are experiencing are the beginning of wisdom when it comes to your physical, mental and emotional health, assuming of course you listen and take steps towards purposeful healing.

Healthy choices might be a good idea as might a gentle detox, but do see a physician/GP if you aren’t sure. Let’s get ready for Happy & Healthy New Year! It’s not a resolution, it’s a gift to yourself.

Saturday Oracle – Happy Place

Grail Oracle 6Grail Oracle Yellow

This week’s oracle sees the union of Principle 6 with the bright yellow of the solar plexus chakra.

It’s hard to find your way back from fear but that’s exactly what this week is bringing for you, though don’t be fooled into thinking that it won’t take work on your part. Recently you have found yourself dealing with one hard knock after another and at such times it’s easy to give into pessimism and negativity but like attracts like and kindling your inner magical child, the one who believes anything is possible will help you to take the first step into the slipstream back to your happy place.

The oracle is not portraying so much a time of celebration coming to you, more that you should consciously search for things to celebrate thus transforming fear into bliss. This week is an opportune time to break out of the everyday routine and find something fun to do. The idea of Self-Full Living is to reconnect with your own needs and make sure you do something, however simple to fulfil them. Socialise with friends, play, sing, and even surround yourself with the colour yellow to boost your natural sunny disposition.

I should also mention that when Principle 6 shows up its important to look at your physical health and where you might be in need of reconnecting with your body. As the solar plexus is primarily centred around your stomach, I want to draw your attention to your diet and eating habits… have you been comfort eating through a stressful period? Now is a good time to switch to a more life affirming, nutritious repertoire and be conscious of putting only health enhancing foods in your mouth… it may be too soon for a full on detox as the storm has not yet completely past but you can make a good start so that you don’t create a new set of issues to deal with.

So then: clean food, fun, optimism on purpose and an intention to find your way back to you.

You are worth the effort… I know this because an angel told me so.

More next week… x
