Get The Basics Right, The Fun Stuff Will Follow

We have arrived at the end of an energetically transformative week, which if you’ve taken advantage of, you could be feeling grounded in the present moment, poised for whatever’s next but neither relying on its arrival nor doubting that it will come. This place, here, in the now, is a wonderful environment filled with the power of infinite potential but it is not a place to wait… it’s a place to nurture that power by focusing on what’s important and immediate. Get the basics right, the fun stuff will follow.

So what are the basics?

Last Saturday’s oracle whose potency is evident right up until the end of the day, was about communicating your needs, and given the mildly antagonistic nature of last night’s super new moon, this is a perfect time for you to attend to those needs regardless of whether help is available. There is so much you can achieve between now and whenever the universe delivers your gift in whatever form it arrives.

The basics include first and foremost your most precious possessions: your body, mind and spirit. Attend to your personal care needs first, spend some time in nature listening to the birdsong and remembering how to breathe deeply, right down into the bottom of your lungs, exhaling the residue of what no longer serves you. Take time to appreciate the flowers… I’m happily playing in my garden doing just that after my help arrived early in the week in the form of a beautiful friend who worked like a machine helping me tame the neglect and half rebuild Eden… thank you Karen!

The basics include spending time with family: eat together, play together, put down your phones and devices and relearn how to talk to each other… laugh together.

Today is all that matters, leave tomorrow to take care of itself (I’ll be back with the Intuitive Chalice Oracle then).

First Monday Challenge – Dealing With Separation Anxiety

It’s the first Monday of the month and of course that means I’m highlighting a Grail Challenge. This month, being the month of love and connection what with St Valentine’s Day creeping up quickly and all, I’m drawn to delve a little deeper into the notion of dealing with separation anxiety…

I’ve found myself immersed of late in various projects and attention grabbers, keeping me in the flow of my moment to moment joyfulness but then yesterday I stopped. It was for no reason other than I’d promised myself a complete day off to rest and recover and to do a drama detox from everyone else’s stuff… it was bliss, at least for the first few hours. I did the full self-pamper, mani/pedi, facial, body scrub, I ate lovely food, increased the water intake… basically did all the stuff that I should do to let my body know how much it’s cherished on a daily basis but I forget all too regularly!

What was I forgetting though?

You are the Wholly Trinity: Mind, Body and Spirit. I took care of my mind by giving it a drama detox, I took care of my body as above, my spirit though needed my attention and seeing as though your spirit is the essence of your soul, all the rest is just trimming.

Feeling anxious, finding my mind wandering into ancient personal historical drama and then into future potential dramas I have yet to create… finding my body becoming tense and demanding addictive behaviours to quiet the obvious void, it took me a little while to get the message… I was symptomatic of loneliness! You can be equally as lonely in a room full of friends as you can standing by yourself if you forget to come home to your Self. My soul was calling me to let her in and I had temporarily forgotten how to listen (and I do this for a living)!

So today’s challenge: spend 3 minutes every hour checking in with your higher self through meditation… your higher self is plugged into the collective, it is God and by embodying your whole self, you will never ever have to feel alone.

Principle 1: I AM God

Principle 2: I AM Detached

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full

Saturday Oracle – Divergent Path

Grail Oracle 6Grail Oracle Orange

This week’s oracle comes with a warning.

I pulled a combination for myself yesterday as I occasionally do for guidance but then imagine my surprise when the exact same cards came out for the group reading today.

Stress is a killer. At the very least it can make you very ill, very unhappy and steal your zest for life… I’ve worked with many people over the years and one thing that has become apparent to me is that nobody burns out doing what they love.

Whenever Principle 6: I AM Self-Full turns up in a reading it is asking you to consider your own needs: physical, emotional and spiritual, and it is asking you to be mindful of your true life path. Combine it with the vibrant orange of the sacral chakra and the warning that ignoring  your innermost requirements is draining your vitality, putting unnecessary stress on your adrenals and pushing you towards your own case of fatigue, whether that be full on physical shutdown, or a serious bout of depression.

You were sent here with a mission. You might think you don’t know what that is yet and that’s ok as long as you remember that your mission is in alignment with your skills, your joys and your passions… God didn’t send you ill equipped to fulfil your destiny, he stocked you full of urges and abilities as guidance… sure you have to learn new stuff to get there but being passionate about learning is one of those urges too. The point is that many of us drift through life doing what we’re made to do, what we feel obliged to do and often through these obligations we forget that we were given a voice and a choice…

Your soul has a plan for you and this week your mind, body and spirit are railing against the fact that you have been consistently taking a divergent path.

If you are exhausted, feeling low, run down, experiencing minor illness or suffering any form of stress then this is the week to assess where you are out of alignment with your divine plan and make radical adjustments to your life. Eat well, sleep well, remove yourself from toxic environments, people and situations, tie up loose ends that are draining your energy and resources, de-clutter your home and work space and begin an inventory of what bits of your life bring you joy and peace and which bits bring stress and discord…

Most of all, go back to your innermost hopes, wishes and dreams and ask if you are neglecting them or casting them aside for some reason.

Call upon the angels and meditate… your health is your ticket to joy, your emotions are your map, your spirit carries the keys but only your soul knows that X marks the spot… start listening.

More next week… x
