Saturday Oracle – At The Root Of The Matter

I’ve been contemplating this combination for a while, doing my best to ignore the obvious connotations it infers. This week Principle 1: I AM God meets the blood red base chakra to get at the root of the matter.

Whilst preparing an ascension class earlier this week I was meditating with the Ascended Master Hilarion with regards to firstly the impending lesson and secondly my own life and current circumstances. He pointed out for me a simple image of a tree… admittedly this was an impressive specimen, obviously having been there an age, but it took some digging and jostling on his part to get me to recognise what the tree represented for me.

This combination represents the tree in many ways, with roots running deep and wide into a fertile earth and a trunk that was solid and strong, so strong that it’s still the most widely used building material in the world, and then there’s the branches, boughs and leaves reaching up towards the light.

Consider that the branches etc, are the things you reach for, the things you grow and the fruits you bare… the projects, services and gifts you give to the world in your own way no matter how small. The strong trunk would have to be your health… your mind, body and emotions in balance producing vitality, energy and that necessary strength. Not just physical strength but the strength or endurance to go the distance. Then we have those roots…

The base chakra, or root as its otherwise known is not so called for no reason.

In my vision the tree, though strong and magnificent was stood alone. In order to stand alone you must have very strong roots in deed. Roots are your basic needs. They have little to do with where you come from which is the association we often make but it is to do with what makes you feel safe.

Your security, safety, sense of belonging and your resources are all in question this week as the first Principle asks about worthiness. That, combined with material needs such as home or shelter, food, water, money etc, is spelling out a week where your attention is turned to survival and possibly fraught with unnecessary worries brought on by poverty consciousness, also known as lack mentality.

Your agenda is changing from what you produce to what you use and though reality is a good place to be (compounded by Neptune now in retrograde), your inability to recognise yourself as worthy and deserving of abundance is going to be your stumbling block.

Years ago my Auntie ran one of the busiest pubs in Sheffield city centre (before the pub trade died on its ass for various reasons). Every Christmas, the pub was so rammed that the bar team got overwhelmed… in those days they didn’t use posh epos cash registers, you were expected to do the maths… but my Auntie had a strategy for her team for just such occasions and its stuck with me for 30+ years: “Think of a number and double it!”

The strategy wasn’t exactly sound but the sentiment was, you see nobody blinked an eye, nobody was counting, everyone wanted what they had to sell (a good time and a party atmosphere more than a pint of bitter I might add), and nobody cared.

Principle 1 is about having faith that all your needs will be met because you are a spark of the divine and it is only your thoughts about what you want and whether you deserve it that keep you apart from it.

So in short: Your focus is on your material well-being, and rightly so as stuff no doubt needs taking care of… but if you focus on what you don’t have you’ll create more need, if you focus on what you do have you’ll create more abundance. If you recognise that you are worthy of more, more will be added, if you assume you don’t deserve to receive then the universe will not deliver!

Remember that tree… How long did it take to get so big and strong and magnificent… you’ve made it this far, push the roots deeper and remember its the ground around you that provides the nutrients but the leaves stretching high into the air need the light of God to do anything with the resources the roots absorb. Money is not separate from God, nothing is… and you are allowed to want more of it in your life… abundance is your birth right.

Saturday Oracle – The Waiting Room

Principle 4: I AM Truth continues to hold dominance this week as it turns inwards shrouded in the deep indigo of the 3rd eye or brow chakra. This combination from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle is reminiscent of Hexagram 61 from the ancient Chinese I-Ching, “Inner Truth.”

You have no option this week but to face up to things as they actually are when the fuzzy edges between fantasy and reality become starkly obvious.

Let’s be honest, it’s been apparent for a while now that you have been in a holding pattern while the world around you has continued to turn, like sitting in the waiting room entranced by illusion, or more accurately, creating your own within your mind.

Inner truth is a gift, though for a while it may not appear so, simply because reality, or at least the current appearance of it in the material plane, will not resemble the happy place you’ve created in your mental waiting room. How could it? You’ve not been paying attention to the details of the outside environment and so they may have gone wildly off plan. But the gift of having the waiting room walls melt in the light of this week’s energy, is that once you see things for what they are you can begin to create change.

Maybe you realise that whilst you’ve been daydreaming about Tom Hardy, your real relationships have become distant? Whilst you’ve been imagining sipping champagne on a private yacht, you’ve ignored the pile of bills that need paying? Or whilst you’ve been indulging in a distracting social life, your health has been suffering? Perhaps you have been in denial about your career prospects but refused to change direction, so heavily are you invested in the rapidly faltering image you’ve created in your mind about success?

I’m a firm believer in The Law of Attraction and the need to visualise where you want to be as if you’re already there, feeling how you’ll feel when it comes to pass in the physical realm. I’m not suggesting you give up that practice… but there is a big difference between using the visualisation technique as a tool, and disappearing into it like Alice down the rabbit hole.

Your 3rd eye is a powerful tool and by feeding it truth this week you can begin to transform reality into a miracle. Only by admitting where you are can you plot a course with your Higher Power to a new destination that you no longer need to hide in the waiting room from.

Stop escaping and check in with reality… before reality bites.

Saturday Oracle – Blind Justice

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Indigo

Principle 4: I AM Truth, has surfaced for the second week running, this week bringing with it the deep indigo of the 3rd eye chakra to ask you a very important question: “Can you believe your eyes?”

Truth, as I’ve mentioned before, is subjective depending on your point of view and not every “what?” has a “why?” Let me explain…

Blind Justice is impartial and the legal system itself is dependent upon only the facts being established, the evidence as it stands. Supposition and conjecture are inadmissible in any court of law because they hold no weight… they are the grey area where one party attempts to establish motive or intention behind any action and although motive can sway a jury it isn’t actually evidence… it’s circumstantial.

Take for instance this particular oracle post. The words stand as facts before you (this is what has been written) but can any of you honestly say what prompted me to write the piece? Do any of you understand the motive behind my words? My intention is hidden from you is it not? You can try all you like to read between the lines to gain greater perspective, some of you may even think you have a handle on it but what you deem to be real may in fact simply be your version of the events that led to this oracle composition… until I physically tell you what my motive is.

This is a week to make your choices based on the facts. What you think you know, what you believe and what might be apparent will not hold weight under scrutiny and cannot sustain your case one way or another. Whatever is happening in your life, whatever dilemma you are attempting to unravel to make some semblance of a plan, let it be based in real, tangible, measurable indicators.

Something as simple as the Christmas Party… “how many shall I book for? I haven’t had an RSVP from several.” Easy… how many have already responded with a yes? That’s how many you book for. “What if someone else decides to go?” Easy… let them call the venue and add a place. What if, is sending you down a road of supposition and not fact and blind justice cannot see it. If you book more, you run the risk of losing your deposit when ‘what if’ fails to show.

It may seem cold, unfeeling and even narrow sighted, but you owe it to yourself to sort out the fact from the fantasy… everyone around you will soon get the hang of how you roll. This is not about being closed minded, or about closing your heart to others it’s simply about creating space in your mind so that your imagination can focus on something more inspiring than just guessing what other people’s motives are.
