Saturday Oracle – The Language Of Self-Love

You’ve be been on an inward journey lately, not that those around you will have noticed. This particular spiritual pilgrimage into your most heartfelt hopes and dreams has caused you to reassess, re-evaluate, redefine and refine what you want from the next phase of your life. That sharpening of focus has helped you to understand where you have compromised your own needs, perhaps through the fear of what others may think, or through fear of what might have to be transformed for you to embrace true success.

Success doesn’t look like what you imagine others think it should look like… but you’re assuming you know what others think.

This week’s combination has Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, partnering with the linguistic acuity of the royal blue throat chakra, centering our oracle message on the need to communicate clearly ones own needs.

During the recent period of reflection you may have stumbled upon clarity about the goal but you will also have a greater understanding about the fact that we rarely achieve our dreams alone, and that often a vision of success includes others. The trick is to get everyone on the same page, pulling in the same direction and whatever other cheesy sayings mean working together to achieve the same outcome.

Now the fact that being Self-Full requires you to consider your own needs, has may of us scrambling for cooperation because we somehow mistake Self-Fullness for selfishness, this is wrapped up in a low self-esteem and depleted sense of self-worth. We all deserve to have our needs met. Unfortunately we feel it necessary to skirt around the issues and use subtle manipulation instead of just simply asking, as a result of this egoic deficiency.

Selfishness is expecting your needs to be met at the expense of someone else’s… but what if your needs are mutual? How will you know if your needs are mutual unless you risk being vulnerable and actually state what you really want require or desire?

This week is the time to stop beating around the bush and tell those that matter, that are crucial to your success, whatever that looks like, how important they are in the plan and what you need from them. Then ask them if they are willing to be the yin to your yang or the yang to your yin… you will never know if you don’t ask.

The language of self-love usually starts with “This is how I feel, and this is what I want.” It’s gentle, clear, honest and simple. To get your needs met, everyone relevant needs to know what your needs are.

Happy Self-Full Summit Week… x

 

 

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.

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…

Principle 3: I AM Human

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.
