Saturday Oracle – The Welcome Mat

Dealing with emotional pain is a very personal journey and there are no real rules on how to protect yourself from further assail, but there are common markers along the road to healing.

This week’s combination, bringing together a matching energetic set: Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted and the emerald green of the heart chakra, are highlighting a part of that process that is crucial to your forward journey.

You are being asked, as we step into a week containing a powerful new moon and a solar eclipse, to look at the walls you have furnished around your emotional centre as a result of recent tribulations and more poignantly, how those walls may affect new relationships.

Self-preservation is a serious business and hardwired into human circuitry, meaning any and all risks that follow pain, that may result in more of the same, are understandably cut off at the pass. The wounded heart certainly doesn’t roll out the welcome mat to would be assailants…

…But you’re being warned this week that you are seeing threats where there are friends and allies, and in searching for safe haven you may be creating a prison or isolation you won’t want to remain inside for long.

Love is being offered to you in more than one form in the days ahead. Do not be tempted to lock out the very thing you need because having been a victim of another’s character flaws forces you to become a victim of your own.

I AM Open-Hearted is the Principle of the true Grail Knight, the true hero who lets love be the guiding light in all interactions. You are being called to step into the light of absolute faith, trust and surrender to the highest power of all… nobody will blame you for being cautious, that’s your right, but you have the power within you to win. Nobody can put out your light, that is the Divine shining through you and it is inextinguishable.

New life is knocking at your door, the door to your heart… open up and give it a chance to prove it is worthy of touching heaven, because that what lives inside your love. Heaven.

The Simplest of Gifts

There’s something very attractive about the idea of having it all, having everything you want in this life, isn’t there? You feel a seductive pull towards things, people, situations and lifestyles that can come off as all but deafening to the ego who sits amidst the shiny screaming “more more more!”

You have no concept what you need. That’s God’s job. Surrendering to the flow of life brings into sharp focus the inappropriate choices you have made up until now as you relax into wanting what is and appreciating the simplest of gifts… like breath.

There’s nothing wrong with shiny, you understand that. There’s nothing wrong with wanting things, people, situations and lifestyles that appear from a distance to be shiny… as long as you understand that its the wanting that produces the feeling, the chasing that amounts to the adventure and that once attained, not only can the object of your hunt never live up to the shiny glimpses you’ve caught along the way but nor can it fulfil your need to want, to hunt, to seek.

Once you have it, that’s the point at which you must once again learn to surrender. You have no idea what you need. That’s God’s job. Your job is now to relax into wanting what is, what has become, and appreciating the simplest of gifts… like love.

This Great Game

Everything you are worrying about right now is an option and the current options available to you are thus: there’s the easy way and there’s the hard way. These two options and these two options only are what go entirely towards making up what we term free will. There is a much greater plan at work here, and if you understand that you also understand that it means that all the chess pieces are destined to be at a certain position at a certain time by divine decree.

Whether you are a king, a queen, a pawn or a knight, you have a role to play in this great game and the way you play your role determines the depth and intensity of the game… but you’ll get where you’re going one way or another.

Worrying about which direction to choose is simply you choosing the hard way, the less enjoyable way. It’s a massive drain on your energy and even if you do get round to making a decision, the worry has robbed you of some of the joy of advancing across the board and then the best you can hope for is relief… though relief isn’t unpleasant, it isn’t exactly the ecstasy you were hoping for either, is it.

I want to liken this feeling to the teenagers out there undertaking their exams around now. Remember back to when you took yours and ask yourself how many times you’ve used that particular information and whether you would be living a different existence now if you had failed? We put too much pressure on ourselves to get it right. Too much pressure on each other for that matter.

You’re going where you’re going and it doesn’t matter how you get there. Just for today, as an experiment, give it up to God and the angels to deal with the details… stick the whole situation in your “Too Difficult” bucket and surrender to the flow. Let spirit choose your next move on life’s chessboard.
