Saturday Oracle – Entering Blissful Partnership

The energy coming from the oracle cards was excruciating, they were screaming “pick me, pick me!” After a week of high emotion, full moon shenanigans and rebellious tendencies, I’d simmered down enough not to argue with them. I made a promise when I began doing these oracle forecasts that I would honour whatever popped up regardless of how uncomfortable the combinations… the first set is the right set, no manipulating results to suit agendas, what would be the point?

This week is no exception as Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted partners literally with the vibrant orange sacral chakra… this is the combination of Divine or Sacred Marriage.

Divine Marriage is described in many ways and often as an alchemical balance of the masculine and feminine principles within, but make no mistake, this is not a metaphorical marriage, this is the combination of entering into or the deepening of an intimate relationship.

Entering into blissful partnership at least speaks to the beautiful nature of this affair of the mind, body and soul, as Principle 7 is the card of balanced giving and receiving. It holds within its remit the essence of unconditional love which allows each partner to be who they are without needing to hide a part of themselves in order to be accepted. This balance and the nurturing of individuality means that the heart flame within each burns brighter as a result of the union.

The sacral chakra is the sexual centre of the energy system and the creative energy here can be possessive meaning that it forms attachments easier and faster than any other chakra. Supported by Principle 7 however, those attachments are healthy and mutual.

So what exactly can we expect?

Where there has been separation, there will now be union. Where there has been uncertainty, there will now be reassurance. Where there has been divergent interests and agendas there will now be alignment. If you are in a relationship this is a week where you will make commitments to each other and feel safe enough to express love in all its forms and safe enough to receive love in all its forms. If you are not yet in a relationship and are looking to connect with a soul mate or twin flame, this combination speaks to your readiness to welcome the energy of romantic love into your life.

Fertility is also a factor here as the sacral energy is bursting with the spark of life ready to transform into a roaring fire, whether that’s the creation of a new idea, project or actual baby remains to be seen but you can be sure that the union between you and another will be a fruitful one one way or another.

Be careful not to throw this energy away on meaningless encounters, such dalliances will lead you to disappointment. Only real love is worthy of you now.

Be open, be ready.

Saturday Oracle – Limitless Inner Cosmos

This week’s combination comes with an overwhelming feeling… it’s the sensation of knowing, knowing beyond intellectual comprehension that you are a limitless inner cosmos.

Principle 3: I AM Human, fully integrates the violet essence of the crown chakra and it suddenly becomes possible to transcend perceived human potential. Ask yourself this: what are you truly capable of?

There is an aspect of this combination that denotes divine grace and even mercy when all previous constraints and limitations are removed and heaven, through you or a fellow human being begins to move mountains. The image here is of the mother lifting a car off her trapped child with apparent superhuman strength in a moment where her objective, motivated by unconditional love removes all physical inadequacies to produce a miracle.

Though the energy may not play out as dramatically as that in your own life, you may not actually part the Red Sea or resurrect a random stranger, you should see seemingly insurmountable odds being beaten this week and all in the name of love.

Love is the highest purpose in the universe (as far as I can tell) and nothing can withstand its absolute power. Any action you take in the next few days, unconditionally, will not only be blessed but be facilitated by angels (even those in human form).

Count forgiveness amongst your superhero armoury too as its energy rips down barriers, builds bridges and connects the disconnected. What with this full moon, new year comet and the power created by the masses focused on the energy of love for Valentine’s Day, though romance is not the message of this week’s reading, deeper love, spiritual love, soul love is highlighted as being the one thing that releases us from our self imposed bondage to become the masters of our own experience and rise up… rise up to meet ourselves as we were designed to be.

When your higher self has full access to your mind and physical vessel, you embody Christ Consciousness and you finally understand that you are completely loveable and loved… and when you are loved, you are invincible.

Welcome to a week of the most powerful you.

The Real Treasures

Winter Solstice Blessings to you all.

In my last post I asked that you join me today in sending more love out into the world, you can read that via the archive but today let’s also concentrate on loving what’s present in our lives.

Principle 2: I AM Detached asks that you focus not in the past or in the future, but in the present and on what is. The winter solstice is the longest night of the year wrapped up in the stress of the Christmas season, when blessings are sometimes hardest to see and easiest to overlook… but not if you focus on the real treasures present in your experience.

Family, friends, health, home… love, that’s the key to everything. There may be a million things that you want and are actively striving for but just for now, settle down to accept and appreciate where you are, what you have and who you are sharing it with.

Keep the light in your heart until it returns to the world. In the deep midwinter let us all become beacons of hope, gratitude and grace that set the example for the rest to follow.

Blessings Abound x

Your Way Is Different

The path ahead is obscured by a hump in the road, a hill that is too high to see over and appears to fall away beyond its pinnacle. What lies ahead?

You chose this path because you believed in it, because although it never promised you easy, it did promise you adventure. It’s not for everyone… and there are those who will never understand why you continued along the way, skipped, ran, danced, sometimes crawled toward an unknown destination with no proof of where it might lead. They will question, they will doubt your sanity at times, they will even attempt to persuade you to change course or turn back completely… and there are times when your own inner-saboteur will hear them and side with their argument that this path isn’t for everyone. They all mean well, including that fearful voice inside your own mind… they love you enough to want protect you from an unidentified foe that threatens, in their eyes, to swallow you whole… but fear and love cannot coexist in the same space and so you must choose.

The path ahead is obscured, the hill is steep. Many stand behind you calling you back to a safer road, few encourage you on. Fewer still say nothing, choosing to believe not in the path but in you, sending only love to support you on the journey that you chose in spite of fear, knowing only love is real and that if the path ahead leads to nowhere then at the very least you walked all the way and you never gave up.

The thing about faith is: if it came with a guarantee, it would cease to exist as a concept.

Just because the crowd is going one way and you appear to be walking alone in the other, doesn’t automatically mean you’re going the wrong way… it may simply mean that your way is different.

Besides, where else do you need to be right now? Don’t doubt your own intuition, it brought you this far.

Principle 2: I AM Detached, and Principle 4: I AM Truth.

A Whole Flame

Very soon after writing my last post “Most Unconventional Romantic Entanglement” I was asked the question: “Are you a whole flame?” Upon considering the question I was instantly propelled towards the most poignant hidden Grail Mechanic… you cannot keep the Grail.

Here’s the best answer I can muster at this time…

Some days I burn bright and some days my fire is low, some days I have the spark but not fuel and other days I have the fuel but no spark… I am a constant work in progress motivated by my desire to heal and be healed, to learn and to teach… and for us all, love is the medium through which we grow, lifetime after lifetime, in embracing it and rejecting it, reaching out for it and hiding from it… it is the eternal dance that drives every aspect of our lives… the power we crave merely a substitute for the divine power of love and the pain we cause, a childlike retaliation when feel the absence of it… an absence caused purely by our own disconnection from the Source of all things. We search for partners, teachers and lovers to help us discover the healing still required, to be the fuel when the flame burns low and to be the spark when the light goes out.

Yes, I AM a whole flame… but some days I forget this amazing revelation for one reason and one reason only…

Most Unconventional Romantic Entanglement

I have been inundated with requests this week, formally, informally, professionally, personally and socially for advice/counselling on relationship issues and The Wholly Grail’s take on the great game we call romance. You’re going to have to forgive me at this point because I’m laughing my head off at the basic irony involved in asking me: a divorcee, currently in the most unconventional romantic entanglement I’ve ever come across with dynamics that nobody would believe if they hadn’t walked this path with me for the last few years… but here’s the thing: the heart wants what the heart wants so let’s start with that premise and build from there…

Coaching using the Grail is an art form when it comes to matters of the heart because every single Principle is involved in some capacity or other, as are the underlying mechanics of The Grail… simply because no two relationships are alike and each has more than one person involved and more than one perspective.

A relationship maybe just starting out, in it’s early stages of ‘getting to know you,’ or it may have been a lifelong partnership. It may be undergoing massive change due to external pressures or the growth of one partner over another or it may be breaking down… there’s also the ‘looking for love’ aspect of romance and all the highs and insecurities that follow along that path, and a myriad of different setups in between. For these reasons I’m not going to go full-on into giving romantic advice here but I will say this much, which is true for all relationships: The Wholly Grail is not a person or what you believe another can do for you, it is a state of consciousness that transcends the need for anything to be other than it is – the attainment of inner peace through acceptance, appreciation and even service.

We were, as a species, created as both yin and yang (feminine and masculine, regardless of physical gender), two halves of a whole… it is therefore in our nature to seek balance by seeking out a twin flame. This however doesn’t diminish the fact that within you is contained the same masculine and feminine nature to varying degrees, and that by balancing, unifying and harmonizing those internal partners you become a whole flame attracting rather than seeking another whole flame, thus creating an eternal fire.

You are The Wholly Grail… once you stop fighting it… and other Wholly Grail’s can’t help but find you and meet you on that level.

Wishing you love.

I’ve Reached My Limit

I’ve been thinking a lot about priorities of late and more specifically what mine are, and then out of the blue at about 1.30 this morning I had a moment of sudden clarity that I’d had everything upside down…

It sometimes takes an emergency to help you re-evaluate your plans for the future and where you yourself fit into them, what you’re willing to accept and where your boundaries truly are. The last two days have been a bit of a whirlwind albeit a short-lived one that have seen the foundation’s of my own reality get a little shaken like the proverbial tower in the tarot deck… luckily the tower didn’t fall this time but it’s only a matter of time before it does… Life is so very precious… love is a gift… family is everything.

My priorities have had me testing the strength of my roots and calculating what I was prepared to give up for something apparently greater for quite some time and I know now what the answer is…

Have you every been in a position where you have had to choose one way of life over another, one person over another, one location over another? I’ve been freeing myself up from all my ties and anchors for years in order to make that choice an easy one but in the early hours of the morning I realised something… I don’t want to. There is something in my current life that I love so very dearly that to leave would be the end of who I truly am… that’s not to say that there isn’t a place for my dreams to arrive and set up camp here, I’ve left the door open and made a space, in my life, in my heart, in my schedule and even in my home to create something amazing, but right here has something for me that the rest of the world is missing and until the inevitable day that she no longer exists in physical form… I’m home.

When you evaluate what’s really true for you, start by focusing on what you already have that you love before you ponder what you haven’t yet got that you would like… that new thing will come with needs, boundaries and conditions… make sure you don’t give up yours to achieve it… your dreams may have to be malleable to accommodate what already exists in your reality. I always ask “What are you prepared to give up?” Well, I’ve reached my limit. Nothing more for now… I’ve been accommodating enough and now it’s someone else’s turn to do the compromising and meet me half way.

Principle 1: I AM God (and I matter)

Principle 2: I AM Detached (and what’s present is what’s important)

Principle 4: I AM Truth (and I won’t ignore what’s true for me now)

Principle 5: I AM Self-Full (and this is what I need).

Priorities change… forgive me if I move you down the list… though you are pretty high up there, the only person at the top… is me.

Take Care of The Scary Bits

So much has changed. Where you were a year ago is so very different from where you are now even if the geographical location is the same… life isn’t static, every choice you make dredges up a whole new raft of circumstances and inevitably even more choices to the point where nothing of the old life remains except as a memory.

All that being said, now is a good time for re-evaluation. You had a goal and recently I spoke of that goal being brought back to the forefront of your mind in order that you might take another crack at it… but is it still appropriate?

Perhaps the destination is but you are so far off the beaten track that another route would be preferable? A bit like when you take a wrong turn and your sat nav recalculates, sometimes it guides you back to the original route plan and sometimes it aborts that one and finds another. You have to decide on that now… but which is it to be?

A true Grail Knight has to weigh up the pros and cons of the journey to be undertaken, but here’s the thing: trajectory is calculated from where you’ve been not where you’re going, simply because we have no real idea what the future holds. This is where history plays its part and the only legitimate time that you can wander outside of the present without allowing yourself to become entangled in a place you don’t belong anymore… the past. It holds the key to unlock the door to your future, but how?

Looking back objectively you can discern patterns of success and of failure, joy and pain and you can also see what skills, talents and Principles you applied (or failed to apply) in each case. More importantly you can see where your decisions were fuelled by love or by fear. Using this strategy you then create a journey planner towards the intended outcome including the most soul enhancing choices and leaving room for divine intervention every step of the way.

My new life direction was chosen by applying love to areas where I had previously allowed fear to dictate my course and by letting God take care of the scary bits. It’s become a proper adventure!

Wishing you a day of life affirming journey planning, may it be guided always by love.

Remarkably Unremarkable

Hey you! Yes you. How long has it been since we were able to communicate without barriers? How long since we opened our hearts and our minds without pretence or hidden agenda? Why is it do you think that we do that, feel the need to hide from each other, shield our innermost hopes dreams and aspirations? Why is it that we hide in plain site the things that mean most to us?

Fear is an epidemic, so I’m told, spreading from one of us to the next by means of energetic transfer without us actually consciously being aware of it… “he’s hiding something, I must therefore fear his motives and guard my own” when the truth is that he is hiding his own fear… Fear begets fear and so on.

So what is it we are hiding exactly? The answer is fairly simple and remarkably unremarkable: Love, we’re hiding love!

We hide from it when we don’t think it comes in the format we want, we hide from it when there’s a chance it might be rejected by someone else who is also hiding from it, we hide from it when it’s too intense because we’ve hidden from it for so long we can’t handle being loved, loving or even witnessing love. We fear love. Fear is the opposite of love but love is the one thing we all want and the one thing we all hold at arms length…

So then, what are you afraid of? What are you hiding from? When was the last time we didn’t let fear dictate how much love flows between us?

No, I don’t know either, but I do know this: I love you… and I’m not afraid of it.

State of Discontent

Is there any wonder we walk through life constantly searching for the next big thing? If we’re honest with ourselves we are all seeking something: abundance, recognition, acceptance, happiness… we can give it a thousand or more names and none of them will quite fill the void, and each time we do achieve one of these things it seems fleetingly shallow. There’s a particularly good reason for this transient phenomenon and that reason is God.

Oh yes, let’s put the blame on God for our inability to be content… not quite what I mean. What I mean is simple: it’s God that we are searching for.

Only when you experience the Divine in any given circumstance do you actually feel fulfilled however temporarily, and temporary is exactly what that experience will be until you embrace the experience of God within you.

Now for those non-religious, finding-it-tough-to digest-the-word-God among you, you may be ready to dismiss this as mere hogwash but before you do, let me swap out the word “God” and transpose “Love” in it’s place. You see, it doesn’t matter what you call It, it’s the same thing (except it’s not actually a thing at all). The problem is you’re looking for it everywhere except in the one place where it resides: within you.

A state of discontent arises when you forget who you are, and who you are is Love. Stop looking for love and show it, stop asking for love and give it, stop waiting for love and be it… Love is a self generating force that multiplies by itself and of its own accord when you recognise that you have the power within you to heal all, including yourself just by asking “How can I best serve Love?”

Start now.

Principle 1: I AM God (or I AM Love).
