Saturday Oracle – Temporary Flux

Grail Oracle 3Grail Oracle Orange

It’s not the end of the world… so you took a misstep, the sacred dance we call life didn’t come with a choreographer and the dance floor is nowhere near as narrow as you might imagine.

This week Principle 3: I AM Human teams up with the currently popular vibrant orange sacral chakra indicating that stress levels are fluctuating as you undertake a brand new adventure and for some reason you are fearing you’ve already failed or messed up somewhere in the last few days that could possibly have a knock on effect to what you hoped would be an imminent breakthrough. Not so.

When Principle 3 rears its head we react from an ancient wounding, historical evidence of being somehow not good enough for the task in front of us. We begin to question every response or comment from those around us and assume judgement rather than counsel. Stress levels soar when that comes from a source that we see as significant. As the sacral is not only the centre where we register stress and trauma but also the relationship chakra, where attachments are formed: romantic, familial and social, this week’s oracle is forming a strong leaning towards you feeling as though you have disappointed someone in your chosen tribe.

Here’s the thing: history is so not relevant to your current situation… who you are today and your connection to this significant other is based on something much more real than your imagined failure or faux pas. It’s okay to give yourself a pass and carry on as if nothing happened. Besides, what you imagine someone else is thinking is unlikely to be what someone else is actually thinking so why fuel your own cortisol levels and make yourself worry?

This energy is set to ruin your weekend if you don’t get ahead of it so you have options…

The real lesson behind Principle 3 is forgiveness so first of all forgive yourself for whatever it is you think you’ve done and then give your counterpart the benefit of the doubt instead of assuming that they will judge you… or… you could just speak to them directly, eh?

Now then, behind this temporary flux in proceedings remember that at the centre of everything there is love. That’s enough.

The Authentic Voice – Stripped Naked

What is it you think I want to hear?

We run through life at a hundred miles an hour forgetting what this whole journey is for: connecting, learning and growing. In an effort to honour that gift I set out this week with an agenda to have no fixed schedule but to fill every moment with joy. I also, being conscientious of that, noticed how often others limited my moment to moment experience with stuff that wasn’t mine, assuming I’m not already really busy.

Now this was a week of hard work, enjoyable, inspiring, loving service, combined with conversations with beautiful friends and family… that was one of my prerequisite components to achieve the experience I was looking for… but this is briefly what I got:

Exactly what is it you think I want to hear?

Authenticity means allowing the soul to be stripped naked and vulnerable… showing feelings, not suppressing ego; letting the raw, pure self rise, fears and all into a loving, accepting open forum for healing… but all bar one of my undeniably amazing friends (thank you Sue), decided that they would pretend to have already absorbed and applied the wisdom and this time it was different.

Now you may think I’m being sceptical here until you understand that just hours later the repetitive patterns restarted in each of them.

There’s a reason that we go around the boulder time and time again instead of flowing gently downstream towards new experiences and that is simply: denial.

“I’m ascending” spoken aloud, proclaimed for all to hear, (or whatever specific words are used to express the sentiment of growth and change), is the ego’s way of convincing others that they are moving up in the world or the imaginary hierarchy of souls. It’s a symptom of a lack of self-worth and a red light to a lack of self-work.

You have nothing to prove to me. You have nothing to prove to anyone except to yourself (God within you) and no matter how loud you shout “this time it’s different” your soul will quietly sit back and watch your ego jump through every hoop and fly the trapeze at the circus knowing full well that there is always more work to do.

When you come to me and speak the words aloud “I’m drowning,” or something like it, when you no longer need to pretend you’re ok when you’re not, that’s when the authentic voice – stripped naked, takes over and ascension really begins.

You have to face the darkness in order to shine your light.
