Saturday Oracle – Revelation

The higher mind is highlighted as the violet crown chakra makes an appearance for the second week running and after we allowed the flow of inspiration last week, it teams up with Principle 4: I AM Truth to bring it to light and prove it to you. Expect a revelation in the coming days, of something long since hinted at by the universe but which you never dared believe.

The crown chakra is a powerful energy centre that stimulates dreams and connection to higher wisdom as well as the deep subconscious, it’s there that the truth has lain hidden for such a long time. What has only been an ephemeral notion up to this time, witnessed through intuitions and omens will prove to be right on point as the truth comes to light in the most glorious way possible.

You must understand that this is your higher truth… or the truth the universe/Source wants you to see, it may not match your current ideals for yourself. As Mercury goes retrograde today and understanding goes a little skew with it, allow yourself some time to sit with whatever is revealed before you respond to it, this way you will give yourself permission to absorb the news rationally and intellectually as well as emotionally.

In meditation with Source this week I was given very clear guidance:

“Before you act, breathe. I will be there in that breath.”

God has a way of reminding you that it is only a surprise in it’s timing and that this revelation is merely confirmation of what you knew from the get-go and therefore nothing to get disturbed about.

Knowledge means change. That said, be prepared to be receptive to the incoming information and to roll with the punches or the kisses as they may well be… this revelation may as I say be arriving unannounced but there is nothing to say it isn’t welcome news once you get over the initial shock.

So in summary: what you always really knew will be brought into the light in a most unexpected way… long held secrets will be revealed… it may differ from what you’d imagined… once the initial reaction wears off the new information will bring a massive shift in your life.

And with that: hold onto your knickers, things are about to get interesting!

Saturday Oracle – To Through And From

Before I get going on this week’s combination it’s worth mentioning that the Sacred Chalice energy of last week still holds some sway, so if you hit the peak and the universe delivered, then keep surfing that wave, but if you tumbled to the bottom hang on in there and do what you can to refill your cup.

Now let’s get started with this lovely gem of a combination…

This week Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, greets the high vibrational violet crown chakra in a perfect display of heaven healing earth.  What this means for each of us is inspired thought, healing energy and celestial blessings flowing to through and from those who are willing to receive.

This is the Channel’s combination. The empty vessel that may have been a result of last week’s events can now become a pure, clear channel for divine grace and inspiration.

Answered Prayer is the best way to describe this duo… don’t look though for material or physical delivery of your 3rd dimensional requests, instead recognise the fresh ideas and the creativity that is effortlessly flowing in your direction.

Now there is a catch with this energy: as inspiration flows through your Open-Hearted delivery depot, it must be sorted applied and dispatched. The title says “to, through AND FROM!” Your heart centre is both giver and receiver of blessings and in order to maintain healthy flow it must do this in equal measure.

This is a week then for Divine Service, for applying your new found higher perspective to your mission and purpose whatever that might be. Mental quickness, ingenuity, problem solving, and a desire to put theses qualities to benevolent use are all indicated here. This week might see things happening really quickly in succession as you smoothly glide from one scenario to the next almost without changing gear.

You’re likely to be ‘on fire’ this week while ever you remember where the inspiration is coming from and that the answers are being provided by a Source much higher than you. Keep returning to that font of eternal grace and let gratitude be your default setting.

You may find it helpful to call upon 3 Archangels this week to boost your celestial valve efficiency even more: Archangel Metatron who will support your Heavenly Assignment, Archangel Sandalphon who is the Angel of Answered Prayer, and Archangel Chamuel: The Angel of Destiny who will help open your heart further to this free flowing fresh energy.

Have an amazing week!

Saturday Oracle – Teetering On The Rim

Sometimes you just know. This is now quite possibly our most popular pick in its regularity at least, and I wasn’t at all surprised by its appearance.

The Sacred Chalice turns up when you are about to hit either the top or the bottom of a cycle and brings with it either great celebration or alternatively great sadness or disappointment. As I’m writing this I honestly cannot get a sense of which it will be as you’re teetering on the rim and it could go either way.

Success or failure, for now, you have done all you can to influence the outcome and you must surrender to a power much higher than yours to determine what fate has in store, a bit like The Wheel of Fortune in tarot.

What I can tell you, and if you have been reading this week’s posts you will be as unsurprised by this pick as I am, is that when this Chalice appears, so too does the energy of imbalance…

If you win: celebrating will take the primary focus and other areas of life will be neglected as you indulge in the revelry of your success.

If you lose: drowning your sorrows will have exactly the same effect, as will wallowing in self pity.

Either way you will no doubt have failed to heed a few Principles in the run up to the make or break moment, most notably Principle 2: I AM Detached, as your mind races to predict impossible to pin down outcomes, stress will most surely have kicked in and mental and emotional exhaustion can often be a result of the increased anxiety… be aware that this will increase your risk of illness as your immune system depletes. If you are lucky enough to fall into the full Cup of Destiny then the happy hormones that follow will sort you right out, but if you are the unlucky one who falls off the golden rim and tips the Chalice up all over you, then I’m sending you straight from here to the Self-Full corner to put all your attention back onto your own health and personal care.

I wish I could give you an exact heads up on what the outcome might be but what I can tell you is this: when you let go, surrender and allow life to happen, you give it permission to surprise you…

And may it surprise you beautifully this week.

More next week.

Saturday Oracle – Now Leaving The Comfort Zone

I love when the energy of the cards follow with my teaching and the twists of daily life, showing me what I already know in stark detail. Teaching an ascension class earlier in the week I was led to disseminate this very theme among my class members; I promise though that the cards were selected face down simply from the feel of the energy running my fingers over the back of them. Now leaving the comfort zone, hold onto your hats but leave all else behind if need be.

As Principle 5: I AM Liberated, is kissed by the grace of the violet crown chakra you are being asked to question and indeed to relinquish that which you deem to be your idea of security, for the promise of a much greater dream.

God has a plan for you, it has come at last to mirror the plan you have for your own life, or maybe your plan has finally come to mirror the Greater Plan, it makes no difference, what matters is that alignment has been attained and with the arrival of the prize…

Don’t think of the prize as a lottery win or a private jet or indeed anything tangible (although it could be any of those if that’s what you and Source have been co-creating), think more in terms of a new phase and the beginning of a new adventure. Here’s the thing though: to take on the exhilarating ride of this dream made manifest you must give up certain aspects of your comfortable little life.

Some examples might be: a huge promotion at work… but you have to move to a new office in a new city where you don’t know anyone; you win Britain’s Got Talent… but now you can’t visit your Nan without having the paparazzi trying to take photos through her net curtains; you score a major contract in your small business… but now you have to give up the security of the day job and commit to it full time without guarantees; or what about bagging your dream romantic partner? What scary sacrifices might that mean in order to fulfil your hearts desire?

The thing is: that situation you are currently calling your comfort zone is mediocre at best… it has to be in order that you manifested this bigger version of reality… God won’t settle for mediocre from you or for you and He sure as heck won’t settle for static, stagnant standstill… your life, like the rest of the universe is set to the default mode of expansion and therefore life will keep bringing you more.

This week then, no matter how terrifying the idea of letting go of the familiar structures in your life might be, no matter how much your fearful ego wants to talk you out of this opportunity to become so much more than you’ve imagined, give yourself the gift of permission to explore the alternatives.

If you don’t know how to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new, to let go of the baggage, the anchors that prevent you from sailing into the sunset, then at least commit to this:

“Though I may be cautious of the unknown, I AM open to the possibilities.”

Don’t let your mediocre prevent God’s magnificent.

Have an unprecedented transit through this weekend’s new moon into a miraculous week ahead.

Saturday Oracle – Suspending Disbelief

I just had the weirdest dream that perfectly sums up this combination and I’ll share it in just a moment but before that let’s get the basics in place…

This week Principle 2: I AM Detached, takes a hold of the mesmerising violet of the crown chakra and plays with it just a little. In this combination you may be forced to open your mind to believe in something that you cannot yet see, touch, hear, or feel; something so removed from your current zone of understanding that actually suspending disbelief to allow it to play out is the only way to proceed… prepare to be amazed.

The dream: I was in a hospital being seen at random because a doctor had caught a glimpse of something strange about me that concerned him whilst I was waiting with someone else who was actually there with an appointment. I was dragged through a series of tests and scans and several specialists later, a surgeon came out to see me saying he would only hand write the condition down for me because I hadn’t gone through referral and so there were no official notes. Everyone looked so worried and I was there saying, “I feel fine… I feel better than I have in years.” He disappeared into a room and came back with a scrap of paper with a diagnosis I couldn’t pronounce. As I read the big words and the concern in his face I began to cry, asking him what the hell it was and what it meant. He replied: “Intermittently a large part of your brain shuts down and scans showed a storm in a part of the brain that should be dormant. During the times your brain goes into shutdown you will lose control over your body and may not be fully aware conscious without even knowing it, like you’re having blackouts.”

I laughed until it hurt and he could do nothing but look confused saying “do you understand the seriousness of this condition?” “Yes,” I replied, “Its called meditation, I never blackout, and the storm you see in a dormant part of the brain is me receiving wisdom from spirit.”

The dream went on to the surgeon asking me to prove what being a channel looked like while he monitored and I ended up ‘re-educating a top brain surgeon who witnessed his first miracle… a miracle which to me was just a normal morning practice!

His mind was fixed within his sphere of understanding and his expertise frightened me… even though I knew in my heart I was happier, healthier and more alive than I’d ever been.

So, this week you may witness a miracle or your mind may download new information or inspiration that seems fantastical and unbelievable even, but you must recognise that it only seems so because up until now it has been beyond your scope of understanding. Don’t allow the disbelief of others to frighten you either, your higher wisdom understands what you are ready to receive. Let it play out… it will soon become the new normal.

Have a great week!

Saturday Oracle – Give Yourself The Gift Of Expansion

(Reposted from July 1st)

Support is a key aspect of this week’s oracle and you could be left feeling a distinct lack of it if you are looking to those who are themselves in need to provide it for you.

As Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, begins to wrap self-love around the emerald green of the heart chakra be prepared to be your own emotional support system.

It might sound unreasonable to ask you to be your own best friend in times of need but this phase is a prelude to life kicking up a gear. You are preparing for increased creativity, productivity and receptivity beyond that which you have experienced before. Energetically you feel the rush of wind that’s being pushed towards you ahead of the tsunami and its shaking your confidence causing you to grab for stability wherever you can, but let me reassure you, it’s all good.

We sense the incoming rush and because we have no way of knowing what it entails in practical or material terms we brace for impact instead of allowing a wide open heart to receive the abundance of the universe.

Give yourself the gift of expansion by spending time properly tending to your energetic needs. This means timeout, rest, space… all the personal care aspects of being Self-Full so that you are in tip top shape for surfing that wave when it hits.

Nobody is going to be able to give you what you think you need this week because to others, your world is transforming beyond what they can understand. You may feel their uncertainty begin to tug at your energy and everyone (including you) is going to be a little more needy than usual.

Do yourself a favour and remind yourself that you are in the driver’s seat and Source is your navigation system… if you can follow directions through the temporary restructuring process then everything is coming up roses just on the other side of that tidal wave.

It feels a bit hairy right now because you can’t see what’s up ahead. What you can do is get yourself in the best shape possible to handle the sack load of blessings coming your way. Daily meditation, slow and deep cleansing breaths, gentle exercise, time out in nature… basically anything that allows you to witness and consciously accept that the inflow of the universe is your friend this week,  will aid in you preparation.

To receive more, your heart space must expand… that’s a gift only you can give to yourself by learning to relax and knowing you are a worthy recipient. Give yourself permission.

Saturday Oracle – Emerging Into Innocence

I feel like this is a familiar combination. I didn’t wander back through the archives to see whether it has come up before, when or how often, simply because if it feels like it fits the natural flow of events then there’s no reason to question why the two cards screamed to be chosen… and it is an oh so natural progression from the last few days of embracing one’s own truth.

Principle 3: I AM Human, finds its mate this week in the vibrant orange of the sacral chakra and with it the unnecessary hiding stops.

I AM Human deals with the fallibility and frailty of the human condition in this case invoking emotions such as shame and guilt but it is also the Principle that deals most closely with the elements of grace known as forgiveness and acceptance. When placed in the context of sacral energy this then applies to sexuality, intimacy and social positioning. When you apply grace to all of those, something extraordinary occurs…

The arrival of this combination this week then shows the emergence of innocence as we fully allow our spiritual selves to embody our physical selves and let the light shine through the body itself.

Until now we may have been suppressed by those feelings of guilt and shame about our sexuality and seen ourselves as less than beautiful, less than divine: as human, and therefore somehow unclean or unloveable… but now the childlike, innocent wonder of pure nakedness must be appreciated. Nakedness not just in the sense of having no clothes, but in the sense of having nothing to hide.

This emergence of innocence has such power inherent within it as you allow yourself to begin to revel in the experiential interplay of senses, almost as if you have been given a human body for the first time and you can see through new eyes that everything is in high definition, hear with ultra-clarity the musicality in even a gentle breeze. Now the smell of everything is exciting, arousing memories and inciting new inspiration… as I found just days ago the taste of pure clean water has become so intoxicating to me that you would assume I had never taken a sip in my life. Be prepared to feel… yes feel everything as your nerve endings become alive with the light shining through you and resulting in you emanating a magnetic field that becomes irresistible to all life… You have become life itself.

I have titled this piece ’emerging into innocence’ for a very good reason: there is nothing contrived about this immensely attractive state you are entering into, there is nothing about it that is founded in ego, Principle 3 is in its positive format here, ensuring that the ego is falling asleep and grace has flooded your system allowing you to be who you are in your most natural state and as a result you are falling completely in love… with you.

Only when you fall in love with all that you are, do you step into the fullness of the divine plan for your physical life here.

This week you can continue the path that began halfway through last week when you stopped judging yourself and started playing with the gift of a physical life and all its blessings, in the same way a child prefers the simplicity of the cardboard box the gift came in than the complex possessions it housed. No matter how plain, basic or even battered you see your body as (or your cardboard box), you are beautiful… in fact you are fascinating and everything you encounter this week can be fascinating too when you allow yourself to experience intensity with the intention of discovery.

Rediscover yourself this week. When you get out of your own way and your divine spirit fully embodies your physical form, you are not just attractive… You become incredible… and seriously sexy.

Have a great week… x

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 – Inside And Outside

This week’s oracle kicks my ass  on a previous post and I can’t help but be impressed by the irony of it. A little while ago I wrote a piece called Preparing On Purpose that was all about self confidence in any given situation coming from recognition of the divine within… and I stand by that. This oracle though, is pointing toward the necessity of lavishing attention on your physical self to help support your ego-based self-conscious issues.

This is far from a negative week though, in its entirety it is encouraging you to get full-on body positive in order to fully embrace your bliss.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full connects with the energetic seat of personal power which is the exuberant yellow solar plexus to focus you in on pleasure over the coming days. This combination has a hedonistic feel to it but along with that comes the tendency to over-indulge.

To use this energy properly, which is the desire to direct love upon oneself, you must first ask what constitutes long term benefit as opposed to short term gratification.

We are swinging into the summer season now so minds are turning towards holidays and getting “beach ready.” We are focusing on romance and generally how best to regain our playfulness that hides throughout the winter months under layers of woolly jumpers and weather worn faces… but with this shift in agenda comes a shift in confidence, and all too often we begin to berate ourselves for not being perfect (whatever distorted image of perfection we may actually be clinging to).

The Solar Plexus governs our ego, our digestion and therefore eating habits, our ability to assimilate information, our ability to accommodate abundance, our natural childlike state of joyous abandon… bliss. If a healthy sense of self confidence lives here then you’re in for a week of excitement getting ready for the fun that is set to follow, if however you struggle with loving yourself then unnecessary worries are going to befall you.

Self-Full Living is the art of taking care of one’s own needs inside and outside, now is the time to do that. Give yourself the best fighting chance of shedding the inhibitions by spending this week deliberately tending to your own body’s and your ego’s needs: Pamper, exercise, eat well, practice self-appreciation affirmations, update your wardrobe based on what looks great and feels comfortable rather than what the label says (or the number on it)…if you look and feel great you will take some of the concern away from impromptu invitations to embrace life to the full.

You deserve to jump into the next phase with your full being in a state of bliss. Get ready now!

Wishing you a week of increased self-esteem and playful preparation… x

Saturday Oracle – One Step Too Far?

I’m beginning to wonder if The Sacred Chalice has made more appearances than any other card or combination in the set. It certainly seems prolific of late and each time it arrives it brings with it a slightly expanded energy. Perhaps though, this week that expansion is one step too far?

In everyone’s life there are times when you just don’t feel as if you can possibly take any more. Too much pain, too much joy, too much anything is a strain on the human psycho-emotional system and this oracle energy turns up at the moment before release.

Don’t assume that suffering is born only of negative over stimulation. Imagine if you will that you are undertaking a blissful journey. The journey, as they say is the destination, but for most the destination is a conclusion from which point a new journey can begin. If the destination is perceived to be forever out of reach, then the sojourner eventually arrives at a point where they can no longer continue because no end is in sight. This reminds me of the symbol of the Ouroboros (the snake curled around in a circle swallowing its own tail), eternally going round and round and never quite completing anything.

Now on this particular leg of our hero’s journey is a promise that you’re almost there. I’ve been seeing an image of a threshold all week that portends standing on the brink of the new, but when the Sacred Chalice shows up, as I’ve said before, it demands that you can no longer carry on doing life the same way. The proverbial tower falls, structures are rearranged as one journey ends and another begins.

This is the excruciating bit just before the miracle, just before the tipping point… but you can’t see the miracle, you can’t see the finish line, you’ve endured for so long that the promise of it sounds just like all those other promises and you are standing in the gateway, the threshold between what was and what will be and right now you have a choice…

You have no idea what stepping through will bring, you have no idea what stepping back will bring either… everything is operating at a level of uncertainty. This miracle could be supreme success at the peak of your climb or it could be sweet relief at the very bottom of your fall… and here’s your dilemma: do you believe in miracles or do you believe that to take one more step would be to fall asleep once again under the influence of the master illusionist only to begin the cycle again and perpetuity?

The Chalice shows up when you’re empty and you can be empty for one of two reasons: either you’re making room for the universe to deliver the mother load, or you have allowed life to use you up, which is it?

The fearful mind will create distress, compel you to panic and force some form of drama (after all you’ve convinced yourself you can only take so much and this is where you usually begin to struggle), but the hero will stand on the edge of heaven and wait for the gates to open, fully believing in the benevolence of the master illusionist and that this journey is not an illusion at all.

You’ve been here before… but you’re awake now, you’re aware… be The Sacred Chalice and let whatever happens next to break your heart wide open ready to be filled.

Nothing goes on forever, don’t quit right before you arrive at the destination. You’re almost there. Take a drink from the Chalice and find the strength to keep going.

More next week… x
