December’s Oracle – Ta-Da!

December’s Oracle – Ta-Da! Yes, The Sacred Chalice showed up to signal the arrival of something huge. No, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about a major turning point in life where it seems as if all roads were leading to this singular point.

Admittedly, The Sacred Chalice can be equally as challenging as it is miraculous and fortune could swing either way at this point, but what it does gurantee is change.

Change may arrive in the form of positive news, an opportunity, or invitation, but could just as easily denote illness or loss. Sometimes the biggest most exciting opportunity requires that you give something else up and so it holds both blessings and burdens in it’s grasp.

For me personally, when I pull this card I know that whatever the short term disruption may bring, the long term pay off is enormous and immeasurable, so I give thanks whenever I see it.

What I would like you to be vigilant about at this time is how you are processing the changes that are occuring around you. Even the happiest of occasions can create a disturbance in your health and energy field that need time to settle and ground. Two angels I like to call upon during times of chaos and upheaval are Archangel Haniel and Archange Uriel.

Haniel is the Angel of Grace and helps you to remain composed under pressure. Uriel, whose name means the Light of God helps me to stabilise my inner “pilot light” and keeps my physiological resources firing at a steady rate so I don’t hit burn out in the process.

Whatever exciting changes crop up for you this week, try to maintain some routine and pay close attention to how Self-Full you are being: rest well, hydrate, eat a nutritious diet and make time to both exercise and meditate. My best friend through all the changes I’ve negotiated over the years has been my journal. It helps me to process how I’m feeling, what I’m thinking and also to monitor the tone and texture of my mindset, allowing me to adjust the sails in a more positive direction if I begin to lose myself in all the mess.

As The Sacred Chalice is the only card in the Intuitive Chalice that is not accompanied by a chakra/challenge card, the exact nature of your Ta-Da! moment is impossible for me to predict and will no doubt touch multiple layers of your life. It is an indication that The Grail is present, only you can know whether the Grail is overflowing in your life or has been spilled over and emptied…

One thing is for sure, the nature of the universe is that all states serve and we must experience both in balance in order to fully know what it is to live and love.

I’m praying your December’s Oracle – Ta-Da! moment is the biggest blessing of the decade.

Appeasing Your Restless Spirit

The tendency towards wanting to leapfrog over your current position to the next chapter of your story can cause you untold and unnecessary disharmony. Where you are right now is crucial to the ever unfolding plot and if you were to bypass this delicate scene set up the vital clues to the mystery of your life would be absent from your onward journey.

All that being said, if you are trying to move forward without acknowledging where you are then the chances are that where you are has you unsettled. Appeasing your restless spirit is as easy as telling yourself: “Where I am has a valuable gift for me to acknowledge and accept” or “Where I am today has something to teach me that will serve me well tomorrow.” Then it’s just a matter of exploring the current terrain for clues.

Exploration in this case doesn’t have to be frantic or even energetic… for example: my current terrain is forcing me to retreat and take time out to recover from a few very stressful and life changing months. I’ve been fighting against that because I have stuff I want to do, to create, to share etc… but the universe has other plans for me right now and other opportunities ahead that would suit me far better. Pushing against the flow is exhausting so retreat for a while I must… and today I am feeling very blessed for the opportunity to rest.

Instead of attempting to change where you are, allow your exploration of it to be deep and slow, remembering always that the current terrain to be understood is internal and that external circumstances are merely highlighting your inner belief systems. Meditation and prayer are my recommendation for appeasing your restless spirit, in which you can set up an open and honest dialogue with your higher self, the part of you which remains constantly connected to The Divine. Search for the blessing and sit with it for a while… The story will progress at the speed its supposed to once all the relevant pieces take their place.

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Shattering Mirrors

There may well be a tendency to fret and struggling when your reality begins to shift, it’s natural to want to hold onto what feels stable and so become fearful and distressed if your equilibrium is threatened, but was it ever a nurturing equilibrium? Now that the shattering mirrors are revealing little less than lies hidden beneath, isn’t it time you began building foundations that aren’t made from glass?

Every relationship, friendship and acquaintance you have is a reflection of who you are, but when you begin to transform, when you begin to value yourself more, these reflections begin to distort and that distortion eventually either shatters the glass of the reason or need for them to be connected to you, or it transforms those reflected in the mirror to new versions of themselves and indeed of the relationship.

When you apply self-love to your every action and begin to value your Wholly Grail, manipulation, usury and co-dependency begin to evaporate.

As difficult as it is to recognise that your connections to some people were born of need, perhaps from both parties, anger and resentment are useless depleting emotions that will serve to keep you stuck, as are guilt and shame. The way through is forgiveness for all mistaken interactions and gratitude for all the lessons, after all, this individual or group of individuals played a role so well as to be the mirror that reflected back your best and worst attributes offering you the tools by which to heal yourself and grow (however painfully in the moment or blindly in the past).

Bless those that remain, bless those that have fallen away, don’t struggle with those whose mirrors are beginning to shatter… just carefully clean up the glass and bless them too… new mirrors are forming around your elevated frequency and so a new reality is being born and new connections and relationships are beginning to enter your view.

Nothing is permanent in this life.

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.

The Real Treasures

Winter Solstice Blessings to you all.

In my last post I asked that you join me today in sending more love out into the world, you can read that via the archive but today let’s also concentrate on loving what’s present in our lives.

Principle 2: I AM Detached asks that you focus not in the past or in the future, but in the present and on what is. The winter solstice is the longest night of the year wrapped up in the stress of the Christmas season, when blessings are sometimes hardest to see and easiest to overlook… but not if you focus on the real treasures present in your experience.

Family, friends, health, home… love, that’s the key to everything. There may be a million things that you want and are actively striving for but just for now, settle down to accept and appreciate where you are, what you have and who you are sharing it with.

Keep the light in your heart until it returns to the world. In the deep midwinter let us all become beacons of hope, gratitude and grace that set the example for the rest to follow.

Help Needed – Designed to Detonate

Did you forget the real message?

It’s ok. To be fair you’re not alone. It happens when we get wrapped up in our own little worlds and our own little dramas, we begin to believe that’s all that there is as we inevitably succumb to the illusion of reality that we are locked into like a missile heading towards an unsuspecting target… but what if that missile were to explode in mid air? What would be the radius of beneficiaries if, instead of honing in on a single target you decided to make your mission a universal love bomb, designed to detonate in the stratosphere and rain down blessings on the entire world?

What an amazing notion… what an amazing visual key to the concept of peace and love to all mankind… I take your weapons and I raise you a love bomb! I take your war and destruction and I raise you the fallout of a newclear (yes that spelling mistake was deliberate) winter, making way for a miraculous spring where flowers grow wherever you place your feet because you too have been infected by the love radiation distributed by the world’s most devastating explosion… devastating? Yep, it put paid to war and conflict, to hatred and to separation, it’s devastating alright.

It’s just a couple of days now to the solstice, Mercury is entering retrograde, it’s time to fix things even if it’s just a little bit. My love bomb may not be a physical reality but if you would all like to join me on Wednesday, from wherever you are, in just 5 mins of meditation in which you visualise launching your own personal love bomb straight from your heart chakra set to explode in the Earth’s atmosphere and watch as it rains beautiful peace all over the place… it doesn’t matter what time, just do it on this Wednesday 21st December.

I’m looking forward to the fireworks.

Last One Standing

What’s your superpower?

I was struck by a realisation recently with regards to the trials and tribulations that we constantly find ourselves in, that we are looking at the whole thing back to front. As cycles and seasons turn we often recognise the patterns our lives follow and begin to feel let down when the same set of footprints appear to be trampled in what we hoped would be virgin snow or a new chapter of the adventure.

I noticed the amount of posts from friends on my Facebook feed saying 2017 is going to be different and I confess I had a momentary surge of jaded cynicism rise up within me when I remembered the posts from last year… saying the same thing… it quickly receded and was replaced by a sense of appreciation for what has transpired over the last 12 months, fully recognising the familiar patterns for what they were… aspects of my very own superpower waiting to be acknowledged.

My realisation constitutes a simple flip in perspective: begin to see your greatest challenges as a flimsy disguise for your superpowers…

For me, patience seems to be my life long lesson, my bugbear and karmic cross to carry through this lifetime… or so I thought until I flipped the notion and began to understand that my capacity for patience, waiting, endurance and sheer staying power is greater than that of most people I know… The things I’ve waited for in life, many would have (and indeed have) given up on years ago as I continued to believe and still continue to believe… Do I like waiting? Do I hell as like! I’m not particularly gracious at it either; waiting with grace being the very definition of patience… but I am invariably the last one standing in the game.

That’s not a challenge by the way, for any of my friends, acquaintances, clients and colleagues who think that its ok to waste my time on such matters. No indeed, my superpower is closely linked to my faith and my faith to the value of that for which I’m prepared to wait.

So now, using this idea by posing to yourself the question: what is my greatest repetitive challenge in life? Now sift through your history and recollect all the times you were faced with that challenge and survived it beyond the capacity of that shown by those around you.

See, you too are a superhero and now you’ve recognised your power you will never look at those challenges quite the same again and 2017 really can be a better year.

Feel free to leave me a comment on what your superpower is when you recognise it, I’d love to shout out to all the superheroes in my orbit.

First Monday Challenge – When Not To Compromise

Along the path we often find ourselves, having completed a stage of the journey, reflecting on the lessons and blessings that came with it. We consolidate the ups and downs into wisdom by combining the new knowledge and the visceral experience, the memory of the pain and the pleasure into a metaphorical talisman of protection to remind us what pitfalls to avoid the next time around…

But this path is a tricky little sucker in that it disguises those same patterns with new faces, locations, situations and scenarios just to see if you are paying attention. The moment you complete the lesson, that’s when the test comes.

As its the first Monday of the last month of the year, no doubt you have had many lessons and many blessings since the year began, no doubt replete with many successes and many failures… the need for universal balance dictates that it should be so. So what of today’s challenge?

The universe is sending you an end of year test:

You’ve said goodbye to much, closed the door on some, closed the book on others… you’ve left the gate open for hopes and dreams but slammed your heart shut to potential pain… and here you are, another year gone. Some of you are celebrating an extraordinary year and others are sinking into despair and wondering why you’re here again…

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it is to recall all the times this year you were afraid to take a risk, afraid to step beyond you comfort zone. Don’t dwell there in victim mode asking “why me?” simply acknowledge you had a choice and thus empowering yourself to see a different choice when that opportunity arises again. Now, having done your retrospective risk assessment, look back at all the times you’ve compromised over the last year, all the times you caved in under either external pressure or internal habit or addiction… again, don’t dwell there, just acknowledge and accept that you had a choice in that moment however much it appeared otherwise and empower yourself to choose more wisely next time the opportunity arises.

Now then… The universe has decided that the lesson is complete. You will be tested this week, maybe even today… based on all you’ve learned, it’s your job to know when to take a risk or when not to compromise.

If you closed your heart to pain, you closed it to life and to love and to joy as well… when you shield your heart centre you will never be able to take a risk never learn to fly in an incredible leap of faith and you will constantly compromise on everything.

Isn’t it time your talisman was heart-shaped, open, trusting and full of wonder? Let love in.

Saturday Oracle – Crisis of Faith

Grail Oracle Chalice

I have a confession to make…

On pulling The Sacred Chalice for the 3rd time in recent weeks I broke my own rules and pulled another combination. The Intuitive Chalice Oracle works by combining  one of The 7 Principles with one of the 7 colours of the rainbow pertaining to the energy centres of subtle body or chakras (as they vibrate at 3rd dimension), but there is an extra card, The Sacred Chalice which if selected, requires no additional card to complement it…

The crisis of faith I’m referring to in the title is less about the selection and more about me not believing our luck… I say ‘our’ luck because each week I pick a group combination meant for all of you reading this.

Last week I was excited because sweet love was calling in soul mate energy and this week looks set to continue the theme of abundant blessings coming your way… but…

…The Chalice, when it runneth over also demands that something be given up in order to make room. Along with the general flow of yesterday’s 999 numerological portal opening and the “completion” of cycles that it heralds, this powerful symbol represents that you are gaining confidence in your own wholeness and as a result others are beginning to mirror that back to you. Those who don’t will find that your magnetic pull on all that you desire will actually repel them.

You are starting to operate on a much higher frequency and as a result your circle of intimates is transforming as you invite in the new and the old and outworn gets washed away with the nectar of universal abundance.

Feelings of guilt will stir as will a tendency to try to hold on but you must not fight the gifts that this benevolent universe is bringing you for the sake of sentiment over the ones that have, over time become burdens.

The only crisis of faith going on is us merry lot attempting to suspend disbelief as the universe begins to deliver.

As for the second combination I pulled: Principle 1 with vibrant orange… you are worthy of the intimate relationship that’s heading your way (or if you’re in one, expect it to step up a notch and transform as you become more aware of your own worth).

May all your blessings have wings… x

Saturday Oracle – The Key

Grail Oracle 7Grail Oracle Green

Oh my! This is intense…

I’ve been talking about a portal, a threshold that must be crossed this week, but never have I personally been blessed by such an opportunity as is being extended by this combination.

As Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted embraces the emerald green of the heart chakra, the energy of love is multiplied by itself, and as love is an infinite stream that I can only describe as Source itself, imagine multiplying that energy (infinite by infinite) within your own life… The doorway that has opened is you, and you are being invited to live inside your own heart energy so that it can also be extended out to the whole world.

You’re on fire my darling and the world can’t help but notice.

Principle 7 is “The Key” to unlocking the prison door, as lack mentality becomes a thing of the past so too does your need to hold on so tightly to in this case, love itself. You are energetically calling out to your soul mate, new friends, teachers, rich men and poor men, princes/princessess and paupers alike… your invitation to the universe is magnetic and irresistible, but you are by no means vulnerable…

Love cannot be diminished. It can be denied and rejected but it cannot be diminished, that being said, don’t worry during this time of ultimate attraction that you will be hurt, your open-heartedness allows all to come and go, to flow at its own pace where you are not worried by its arrival or its passing… you are simply in love with its momentary presence within your life, (whether that moment is a second or a lifetime).

As this is a group reading I am breathing this energy out to you in hope that you are not blocking its blessings by closing off your own heart chakra… God has seen fit to bestow this gift and everything you have been asking for is on its way… all you have to do is stay open.

More next week… x
