Weekly Oracle – Breathe In Love, Breathe In Life

Both aspects of this week’s combination highlight the need for balance in one form or another, but they also draw our attention to the need for healing or reconciliation with one’s own essential needs.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, the Grail’s permission slip to put your own needs first, not only demands that you take charge of refuelling your own inner wellspring but also that you do a blanket assessment of all your behaviours to discern what you may be doing to allow what is essentially a self-sustaining healing vessel to be drained in the first place… in effect what’s being tipped out of balance.

One stage on from this combination is the negative or upturned “Sacred Chalice,” a card that stands alone instead of in combination and shows potential illness or burn out.

Let’s take into account then the emerald green heart chakra…

Physically speaking it affects the heart and lungs, inviting you to breathe deeply and oxygenate the blood and by extension the body, slowing your heartbeat and lowering your blood pressure, bringing a sense of expansion and peace to the body… but the heart chakra is more than the physical and mechanical sum of the organs it controls…

When the heart chakra is blocked or out of alignment the chances are you are leading with the head not the heart. Love is no longer flowing as it should be: to you, through and from you. Life may have reduced in size as the heart’s expansive nature becomes restricted, which will show up for you in the form of repetitive, cyclical routines and a lack of new or fresh storylines in your day to day reality, you may even find yourself in restricted spaces which at first feel safe but soon feel like a trap or personal prison and bring on shallow breathing or a feeling of panic and a need to escape…

This is a week where you need to breathe in love, breathe in life.

Wherever you are, if at all possible find somewhere natural. Nature is the gift of love, and if you step into a wide open space, perhaps filled with tree’s (even though many have shed their leaves in the northern hemisphere), or maybe the beach or the mountains, just somewhere where the busy and routine day to day reality seems a long way away, and then breathe. Don’t take your watch, don’t take your devices, take time to be alone with your thoughts, your feelings, your daydreams. 

This is an important week to be present with you. Your inner being maybe craving escape but only by listening with your heart will you truly hear what your soul wants you to escape from… usually it’s the effects of imbalance and the restricted flow of fresh energy… an unhealthy and restrictive routine.

Breathe in love, breathe in life… in all its forms, not just the familiar. The heart doesn’t just want what it wants, it actually needs it. Will you oblige?

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Survive The Flip And Switch

Did you get chance to see the free oracle reading “Release The Inner Sunlight” this week? It seemed to be anticipating you making a break for freedom in some area of your life and that can only mean one thing: change.

Change is life’s constant and so there is nothing to fear from the decisions you make about your life nor the consequences they bring about, its just a case of learning to survive the flip and switch. Some change is slow, gradual and hardly noticeable, so as to not frighten you or the natives but sometimes sweeping changes arrive like flash bangs and startle everyone (even you for a while), and its you I’m concerned with here because the Grail is an inside job… everyone else is going to have to find their own.

If you have been moved to transform your life in one fell swoop, shell shock or some form of disorientation will likely follow… don’t panic!

Now is the time to look around for the familiar as a means to stabilise the inner core. This does not mean returning to the known path, especially if you sacrificed much to make the switch, what it means is taking a breath and anchoring yourself in the present moment where aspects of your surroundings (even if you have moved location as part of your transformation) will be familiar as will your inner landscape…

Look up at the sky for example: it’s a little grey and rainy today where I am but it’s the same sky I’m always under as it is for you (unless you are reading this from the international space station in which case I have no point of reference for external reframing). The trees, the birds singing, the ground beneath your feet, these things still have substance… then there’s the most important reference point: your own heart beat.

Still yourself wherever you are and listen for a moment, if it’s noisy where you are then just feel. The heartbeat, even if it’s rate quickens in times of stress, is unique to you and it is the rhythm of your life. By tuning in to your natural rhythm and consciously slowing it down and slowing down your breathing by being aware of both, focusing then on your physical structure and noticing where you are holding tension or bracing for impact and softening every muscle group in turn… by becoming present to the immediate external world and seeing there is no danger, then adjusting the internal world to relax to it, you will begin to absorb more about where you are in relation to where you were and begin acclimatising to your new situation.

So if you have made the flip and switch and you now have no idea where you are in life, stop, breathe, tune into your unique rhythm, slow down… find the familiar in the unfamiliar and remember its all God… everything is. You will find your way from there.

Principle 2: I AM Detached.

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.

Might Be Out Of Balance

I’ve had a weird few weeks. Struck down by a pretty persistent chest infection about 3 weeks ago, I set about putting myself first in an effort to take my own Grail advice and embrace Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, the art of self-care. Being a healer, quite often we forget to do the work on ourselves and where our instincts when someone else is ill are sharp, under the spell of our personal infirmity we are quick to lose sight of the healing power for which we are natural channels.

All that being said, I invested in some cough medicine for a chesty cough… (have you ever noticed how many types of cough they sell medicine for? I don’t bloody know if it’s a dry cough, a chesty cough, a mucus cough or a bloody skydiving hedgehogs cough… I just need cough medicine)!!! Anyway,  The last thing I need is to be half asleep as well as barking like a dog so a non-drowsy formula was the order of the day… I haven’t slept a night since.

Arriving just prior to the newly nicknamed “frazzle moon” that I mentioned last week, disturbed sleep patterns were shunted into overdrive when a stream of near insanity driven dreams began to crop up, fielding a very abstract view of the current state of my life. Anyone else think I might be out of balance?

Out of balance is a concept that is often bandied around the MBS network, but what does it actually mean?

In Grail terms its a simple description of the 2-way flow of energy embraced by Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, meaning to give and receive in equal measure. We assume this to be about giving and receiving between people but not so… take everyone else out of the equation for a moment and come back to Principle 6, being Self-Full, how much have you given back to yourself this year? Think in terms of appreciation, gratitude, admiration, time off from external stresses. Think about the flow of energy between you and your Source, service balanced with meditation and rest for example.

Being Open-Hearted is a symbol of flow. Like the physical heart whose valves take in life blood and pump out life blood in equal measure, so too are you supposed to allow energy and life itself to follow this same path… like inhaling and exhaling.

For a short while I’m in the process of inhaling, the art of self care is the ability to receive what you need from the universe before you begin to exhale and give back. The season of good will doesn’t exclude you, make sure you’re being good to yourself.

To all my friends who are feeling under the weather at present, my present to you is simply to tell you that you don’t need permission to take a breath.
