Sitting With The Unknowable Next

I seem to have found myself in a magical place of pure potential. I suppose it could be described as innocence, a situation that is so far removed from my prior experience that I cannot for one moment pretend I have the faintest, foggiest idea what the rules are. Being a control freak by nature, it’s both exciting and excruciating sitting with the unknowable next.

This is a true adventure…

Placing yourself in the mindset of the student, open to a new way of being, a new influx of information, letting go of the need to be the one with all the answers, gives rise to fresh energy coming towards you from the universe as it manoeuvres the right people and support into position to help you with the next stage of the journey.

It’s been such a long time since I admitted “I don’t know.” It’s truly liberating.

This place feels like the first day of school and I think I’m falling in love with who I am here. Everything I’m trying to achieve, build and share has been redefined within my heart and mind as a precious gift for all those I meet along the way… and I can’t wait to begin learning.

As the weekend unfolds for you, as an exercise why not place yourself into the mindset of the student, the seeker, the innocent with an open mind and an open heart? When was the last time you gasped in amazement when you discovered something new? It can be disconcerting not knowing but it’s also exhilarating and life affirming and its the starting point for changing and expanding your life.

You might just fall back in love with yourself by admitting you really have no clue… The relief is nothing short of a miracle. Let someone else be the teacher for a while… It’s ok, you’re safe.

Invoke Archangel Zadkiel for help with learning and assimilating new information, he will help it sink in. You simply have to call his name and ask for assistance. You’ll notice the synchronicities as new teachers, guidance and support shows up from unexpected places just when you need it.

Have an amazing weekend.

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.

Blinded By The Light

Possibly the most exciting phase of any project or relationship is the start up. The steep learning curve pushing you beyond your own personal glass ceiling into brand new territory, scary as it maybe, changes you forever as new knowledge integrates and overrides your previous assumption of capability and often your belief system which until you know that you didn’t know, how could you know that those beliefs were self-limiting?

It’s all very exciting (as I said) until you hit the first major snag or obstacle.

Obstacles are not put in your way to rob you of your joy, they aren’t some kind of cosmic karmic punishment, instead, see them as Divine protection designed primarily to alert you to an issue. Sometimes that issue is simply a need for more learning, sometimes it’s pointing out that you are heading straight for danger.

Let’s assume for a moment that all the obstacles in your way are mighty angels. (I like that image, I’m much less likely to try to barge through without stopping to acknowledge the awe and majesty of the being before me)… but that beautiful angel is still in the way, right? The difference is that now you are asking questions, your excited by the obstacles and you are positively buzzing about what you need to do to not only get past the problem but to actually make friends with it and make it your ally. Imagine having an angel on your side!

Now where you once saw a mountain blocking your path that sent you into child mode, stamping your little feet about why it always goes wrong for you, you now are being blinded by the light… light so bright that it blinds you to all but the solutions!

Instead of allowing problems and delays to steal your joy, allow them to shine a light on your potential.

May you be carried simply and swiftly into the slipstream towards your own miracles today.

What If The Obstacle Is You?

Do you focus on the obstacles or the way around them? This was the question I had to ask myself this morning when preparing to write a Grail insight.

Interestingly, I was the obstacle to my own motivation this morning when I awoke feeling a little out of sorts having witnessed a movie style dream scenario, no doubt unearthing deeply routed truths about my inner workings and the current state of my external life. The obstacle was an obvious Law of Attraction faux pas, I was focused on how I felt not how I wanted to feel.

My thoughts were dictating the direction my day was going and though a part of me was giving in to the momentum of going nowhere fast, my overall goals did not exist along that particular path. My goals being to feel joy, passion, fulfilment, inspiration and excitement in every moment from here on out. The goals had to be the motivation.

Choosing to look beyond the obstacle is often the most effective way of allowing Source to show you the route around or through it, creating a simply and swift path to the destination whereas when you look directly at the very thing that is stopping you from moving forward that will eventually become all you can see. I’m not suggesting that you slip into denial about the potential setbacks along the path… they are meant to keep the journey interesting, to provide challenge and diversity in the day to day of things but there’s a big difference between acknowledging what’s in the way and obsessing over it.

So what if the obstacle is you?

When what you want is a big enough ‘why?’ and the benefits to shifting into a higher gear outweigh the familiarity holding you back then you start to create the formula for revolution.

Use a visual trigger to remind you… I know vision boards are becoming a bit common place but there’s a reason for that. Stick some motivational quotes on the fridge door, get some pictures that represent your intentions, start describing your desired adventure and start taking small steps towards your new world.

Today I have mundane tasks to complete that don’t seem to have the potential to drive me forward… or do they? My goals as I said are to feel joy, passion, fulfilment, inspiration and excitement in every moment… so my mundane chores (done with a happy heart) are about to be the key to all those feelings… now let’s start with a magical walk through the enchanted forest just to buy some milk!

Look past the problem and witness the potential and remember that Principle 4: I AM Truth is an ever growing entity… “I reserve the right to evolve!”

Radical Departure

The door is open, but the window is closing… the window in which to make the change by stepping through the open door.

I know you feel it, that “better the devil you know” mantra undermining your sure footed progress in pursuit of a goal, dream or transformative leap of faith, and the pull of the ever cycling karmic wheel is holding your wrist and tugging you back from the threshold with fearful questions like “What if you fail?” “What if you fall?”

Being intuitive doesn’t mean you’re immune from the effects of the inner goblin always asking you if you’re about to make a mistake but just for the sake of an experiment today ask your inner goblin this little question: “how many times have we done it your way up until now?” See the thing about repeating patterns is that you lose count really quickly and the thing about your inner goblin is he or she always starts a sentence with “Ah, but…”

The opportunity ahead of you may be a completely radical departure from your usual way of moving through life but if the goblin is honest, which to be fair he/she is merely fearful not a liar, then you’ll both have to acknowledge that in terms of where you are, the old way wasn’t working…

Walking through that door, accepting that opportunity may mean leaving something familiar behind, but to truly live up to your potential you have to be prepared to reach further, higher with every step… to become more in each breath than you were when you last inhaled… and in order to inhale ‘now and next’ you must first exhale ‘then and done.’

From where you’re standing now it may look like a giant step, but from where you’ll be tomorrow it was merely the first baby step in an entirely new direction.

Smash Through It

The first Monday of the month is upon us and as we gallop into the second half of an already eventful year, my personal challenge of late has been one of reflection.

At the beginning of this year I gave Angelic Annual Forecasts to 10 lovely ladies as gifts to guide them through the coming months and at the same time I created one for myself. June was to be a particularly difficult month according to the chart as Archangel Samael was to be my guide and so foretold of coming face to face with the shadow side of human affairs… and Samael didn’t disappoint. Far from feeling like June broke me though, I’ve arrived here in July feeling empowered and confident that I can move towards whatever life has in store without worrying too much about whether or not my bubble will survive its sharp blades.

As I inspected my forecast over the weekend and found I was to be escorted through this month by Seraphiel, a seraphim creation angel, I almost had to laugh: if Samael was going to have me trawl the depths then Seraphiel was going to push me to the heights… The heights are much harder when you limit yourself with small-self thinking. Spiritually speaking what was previously my highest potential is about to be proved a glass ceiling and the angels aren’t messing about when they ask you to smash through it.

If there is one challenge I can set for you today and for the rest of this month it’s this: let go of what you think you know about your own capabilities, let go of the small-self, let go of the limits that your past seems to have imposed upon you and soar towards your highest potential… which incidentally, you have no idea what that is yet.

Principle1: I AM God

Principle 2: I AM Detached

A Simple Trick To It

Are you fulfilling your potential? Actually whilst we’re on the subject do you even know what your potential is? It’s something that is often mistakenly compared to success and can be the cause of great sadness if you are wandering around in a personal wilderness asking yourself the question “oh where oh where has my potential gone?” as if it’s a thing that can be lost or for that matter defined by another person…

Potential means not yet discovered, limitless possibilities waiting to be tested and boundaries waiting to be pushed, smashed even. Potential is the moment before the truth becomes apparent.

Sadness arrives when when you refuse to try… as a Grail Knight, it may be your potential to battle and tame dragons, build castles, or in real terms overcome your fears, turn them into allies and create a life full of joy, peace and abundance that is impervious to outside opinion or criticism, but the world keeps telling you that you should live up to your elusive potential and you keep listening (and feeling somewhat inadequate as a result) don’t you? That’s because you are waiting to be defined by another, by the media, by the job title you hold, by a partner, a parent etc… but here’s the thing, it’s your potential not theirs.

If you want to start exploring what yours might be there is a simple trick to it, do more than you did last time. Go further than you did last time, learn something that you didn’t know yesterday, create because your heart wants to, explore possibility and don’t be tempted to define it… You don’t know what your potential is because you haven’t reached it yet and that’s because the limits to what’s possible change every day… it’s called growth. Sadness happens when you accept that what you achieved yesterday is all you can do. Wrong. What you achieved yesterday was all you could do yesterday… today is a brand new day.

Principle 4: I AM Truth… but my truth, like my potential is not fixed… and I reserve the right to evolve.
