Weekly Oracle – Love Me Right Now

With this week’s intense Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo smashing its energy into us and Venus making eyes at Jupiter the Great Benevolent, I’m hardly surprised this combination is indicating that our inner-selves are demanding “love me right now!”

Principle 2: I AM Detached, awakens a part of us that is racing forwards to a time “when.” When I’m rich enough, thin enough, fit enough, when I have time enough, when I know enough… or worse still when I get back to how things used to be. It awakens you to the perfection of the moment however imperfect it might be. Now is all that exists for your soul and now is the time to embrace all the wonderful lessons and gifts that the emerald green heart chakra has to offer.

Love is the most important gift you can offer yourself this week, (well any week actually), it requires acceptance, forgiveness, tolerance and a true understanding of self-worth but more importantly it requires you to let go and stop withholding.

This week’s combination suggests this is a time where your propensity towards self-denial must be overcome regardless of all the made up excuses that override “why not now?” and “why not you?” The optimum time has arrived to give yourself all the things your soul has been crying out for, but most of all love.

Loving yourself and indeed allowing others to love you as you want to be loved is simply a matter of removing the obstacles you have put in place to protect you from your own fears, in this case around your readiness and the timing of the incoming energy.

“Love me right now” is the innocent cry of your inner child who doesn’t understand the constraints your other subconscious archetypes have placed around your ability to nurture yourself and be nurtured by others to the fullest potential in this and every moment.

Expect big questions and surprise situations this week where you may be faced with opportunities that require you to leap towards what your soul truly wants, but be wary of your conditioned response of saying no to life because you don’t believe you are ready for it or the timing seems a little off… The Universe doesn’t make mistakes with timing…. if your heart wants to say yes to love in all its forms then recognise that self-love means not allowing your head to overrule your feelings just because your calendar seems a bit full.

Prioritise your heart’s desire.

If your life is out of balance and you are putting your heart’s desires on hold, why not invest in a Transformative Grail Session with me?

Weekly Oracle – Nowhere Fast

Principle 4: I AM Truth has represented for the second week running, asking us to identify the authentic voice within. You may already be aware of the multiple choices being presented to you about the direction you should take at this time, each with a different voice arguing for its validity and even necessity. But only one truth will lead you to the outcome you desire: coming home to your heart.

The emerald green heart chakra is the point of balance within. The only part of you that keeps time with your soul and your purpose, it never loses sight of your goal. While all the other energy centres are swayed this way and that by incoming information, the heart remains neutral, ever present, and when open it allows for the bidirectional flow of universal love to fuel your desires. The heart is the compass that always points true north… but it’s so very quiet and not at all showy so it often gets drowned out by the neighbouring transmitters and receivers acting out the various forms of fear related information you have assimilated as truth.

The ego quashes the happy, playful, optimistic spirit with the fear of lack and loss and poverty, with the need to fit in and be somebody, the need to have an opinion that matters or a face that fits… or the right accessories or accent… to be seen as having the answers, being useful, blah blah blah… all of which comes from measuring where you stand against your expectations which aren’t your expectations in the first place, rather some societal cartoon of a life well lived. And all the while your heart is keeping your desire and your soul mission alive.

This week you are being asked to stop what you’re doing and recognise that you are actually going nowhere fast while ever you are ignoring the truth within your heart. 

Unburden all that doesn’t serve your primary purpose and go towards your truth. 

I know, some of you think you don’t know what it is, but you sure as hell know what it’s not! Don’t reach for short term gratification, your heart knows there is work to do and it knows that the fast and easy option is the distraction. Your heart knows that you will meet with resistance from external sources but it doesn’t fear rejection or humiliation because the prize for courage is freedom. Your heart will never give up on your purpose because it knows nothing else. Only when you resist your heart’s desire will it begin to give up on you… and that looks like grief, regret, despair and eventually physical illness and deterioration.

When your last day on Earth arrives, even if you never quite got there, let go completely knowing you never gave up on what you loved and you spent a full life chasing it, closing the gap, always expanding towards something that meant everything…

…or you could just keep going nowhere fast.

Weekly Oracle – You Already Know In Your Heart

This week’s combination has two dominant paths so you will have to use your discernment choosing which one applies to you… don’t be concerned, you already know in your heart of hearts the direction and the outcome you require.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, teams up with the emerald green heart chakra to bring you to a crossroads in your current path. Choosing interpretation one will lead you to another choice, another divergent path, whereas interpretation two will have you standing still for a while…

Interpretation one:

Imagine if you will that this Intuitive Chalice combo is the nearest you will get to The Lovers card in tarot. The Lovers offers you a choice (hence if you choose this option you will be choosing to choose). Having decided to go with this option you find yourself at the next crossroads where a major life choice is placed before you: for some it will be the offer of a relationship, for others a job, a house move, etc… the nature of the opportunity may already be clear or soon will be, but what also becomes clear after the initial surprise is that to take this opportunity you will be choosing one path before you and exiting the other that was your reality before.

Things will have to be left behind. Nothing will ever be the same. In some instances that’s not a bad thing, but in others it will definitely mean a period of loss, grief and mourning.

If you choose the option before you, your divergent paths will be named “what is” and “what could be” …will you go with your head or your heart. There is love in both directions but there is only the opportunity for expansion and the potential of living your hearts desire if you choose “what could be.” No promises, just potential.

You already know the answer: the heart wants what the heart wants. Without growth we wither and die. Expansion is essential for the soul’s well-being.

Interpretation two:

Now this combination on the flip side best describes the tarot’s Temperance card and a deep healing and need for balance.

Exploring the essence of Principle 6 we discover that it’s key message is about attending to one’s own needs for health, happiness and general wellbeing. The heart chakra is the energetic centre and balance point of your being, where we give and receive in equal measure and open to the flow of the universe. The Temperance card usually shows an angelic figure pouring liquid between two cups trying to find the perfect alchemical balance between elements. So, in our scenario this would be you standing at the crossroads and focusing on keeping everything in balance. “A little of this a little of that and maybe no one will notice if I’m still standing where I was trying to maintain the status quo.”

Here’s the paradox… both our scenarios might be available and if so you can only stand here for so long before interpretation one’s heart’s desire path falls off the table completely.

When the universe delivers your gateway to expansion, it only stays open for a short time and failing to step through can result in the gates closing whilst you check if you are up to the task. God’s message here is: “Here I come, ready or not!” Whatever form He shows up in.

Interpretation three (am I not always telling you there is a third option?):

Choose both interpretations. If an opportunity presents for you to follow your heart’s desire, don’t hesitate! Yes you will be unbalanced by the dramatic life change, yes you will have to say goodbye to the known path but the Angel in that Temperance card isn’t holding a stagnant bowl of muddy liquid, she is sloshing fresh elixir from one sacred chalice to another trying to find balance… and you can do that too… that’s the entire purpose of The 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail: finding peace along the path.

The heart wants what the heart wants.

Looking back and saying “what if” is the saddest statement I can think of… looking back and saying “Holy Shit! What a ride” and then taking a breath to meditate sounds like a full life, lived without fear.

Follow your heart and find balance as you go.

Sir Lancelot’s Dilemma – Should You Choose Loyalty Over Fulfilment?

Remember those legends of Grail Knights of old, when chivalry was a way of life and loyalty the most precious asset to have and bestow? Remember the legendary royal court of King Arthur, and Sir Lancelot’s dilemma when it came to his love for Guinevere versus his loyalty to his king? What to do, eh?

It might be stuff of legend but it’s a common theme in today’s society… I’m not talking about stealing another man’s wife, that’s a conversation for a completely different website, what I’m talking about is a subtler dilemma that still asks whether you should go after your desires even if it means disappointing someone you care for deeply?

We all put real stock in relationships and connections. Words like loyalty, fidelity, dependability and reliability all smack of the attachment of expectations and for the most part, even unwritten, unspoken vows exist between individuals or groups of people without ever causing a big problem. Most of us are decent human beings who live by a code of personal ethics that preclude us doing harm to each other purposefully or consciously either by physical or emotional means. For example: we assume trust, confidentiality, etc. and the longer we know someone, the closer the connection, familial or otherwise, the more we assume those unspoken laws will be in effect… just ask a football fan that dares to cheer on someone else’s team or a girlfriend that dares to fancy the boy her friend likes… it’s a minefield of dos and don’t.

But what about Sir Lancelot?

His destiny, wrapped up in his desire, wrapped up in the karma of all three participants was on the line when he chose to betray his king… was he right to do so?

I’m sure we will all have an opinion on the right or wrong answer but here’s the Wholly Grail’s take on loyalty:

Principle 4: I AM Truth… it simply means that what is right for you in the here and now is the only right answer and if you deny yourself by abstaining from your most precious dream for what you feel may, or may not hurt, disappoint, confound or annoy someone else then you will have committed a betrayal that you yourself may not be able to live with.

Go after your dreams. Not everyone will support you. Some may take it personally and believe it was all about them, but at the deepest level of your soul, when the call comes, your truth is the only truth worth acting on.

Couple of small caveats to interject at this point:

1) If you know someone is going to get hurt by your actions then check your motives and double check them…  if destiny is calling, answer, if however your primary purpose is causing pain, trust me when I tell you karma’s a bitch.

2) Principle 4 comes with a sub-heading: “I reserve the right to evolve.” This means that what is right for you today may not be right for you tomorrow so look to the long term and weigh up if you can live with the consequences before you take the final leap.

In the end, desire and compulsion made Sir Lancelot’s dilemma irrelevant… destiny was calling… is it calling to you too?

Have a blessed week ahead … x

Saturday Oracle – Your Dreams Were Not Your Own

This week’s combination was really difficult to select. My usual method is to disperse the two sets (Principle Cards and challenge or chakra cards as you would recognise them) face down across the table and then slowly run my hand over the top to feel the vibration of each, first to pick which Principle is dominant and then what energy centre it’s pertaining to… this week though, the variation of the cards was so subtle I had to check again. I’m assuming that this subtlety is part of the message.

So then, Principle 6: I AM Self-Full is whispering gently towards the emerald green heart chakra and asking for you to fall back in love… with you!

There has been something missing for quite some time now and you have probably been unsure of exactly what it is, searching for answers and fulfilment in arenas that couldn’t possibly ever give you the thing you were looking for because what you were looking for was in the mirror hidden behind the loud voices of opinion.

I say this because you’ve been surrounded by many who, out of misplaced love for you have supported your trip into denial simply because it was what you wanted to hear. It takes a strong person to offer tough love when it sounds like they are pissing on your dreams… but your dreams were not your own, they were never the dreams that your heart dreamt, they were a construct of your ego’s attempt to fulfil the details that should always have been left up to The Divine.

Now is the time to come back to your hearts desire. It’s not loud, it’s not brash, it will be a whisper and you will have to look past the obvious to see the underlying truth.

The heart chakra encompasses unconditional love, but it also signifies balance, freedom, space and healing, and you are going to have to embrace all of those concepts this week to clear out the clutter of everyone else’s needs and opinions so that you can discern that subtle message and come back to you.

Many will make assumptions, most will be wrong, only you need to know what’s true for you so that you can open up your heart to an influx of abundance and a more stable stream of joy.

Solitude may not be possible for you but peace and quiet and being alone with your higher self is advisable for the next few days. Cleanse your space, cleanse your crystals etc, removing any energies from your environment that are not your own and may sway you from your own heart is essential.

Most important of all: trust yourself.

First Monday Challenge – The Starting Blocks

“Welcome to 2017. Please remember to fasten your seatbelts and remain in your seat until the ride has completely come to a halt…” except it never really does come to a halt does it?

The first Monday of the year and we are all geared up for this universal 1 year (whatever that is), having survived by the skin of our teeth the “9” year of endings that felt like it went on forever at times and yet it seems just moments since I began a post with the words “first Monday of the year.”

What exactly does it look and feel like to be geared up for a year of fresh starts and new beginnings though?

Many of you will be holding your breath waiting for the new to come colliding in through the front door (and for a few it might), but for the most part this cosmic stream that we have placed power into mainly through collective intention is simply providing optimum conditions for you to create anew. The challenge here is when to begin and when to wait.

I know you’re already knelt at the starting blocks but the truth is that you may still be missing some vital information, inspiration, or the direction in which to set off running and so now is the time for reflection, meditation, consolidation and decision making, otherwise when the starting pistol does get around to firing you’ll be spinning on the spot losing vital energy.

Get a pen and paper, write down what you really want to create this year, as both tangible, measurable outcomes and as the resultant feelings and emotions that go with them… use the 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail as guidance if you like, they will provide you with:

Self- worth, Presence, Forgiveness, Authenticity, Freedom, Health and Personal Fulfilment and Balanced Relationships… that’s not a bad place to start now is it? Once you’ve got your list, meditate on it, rule out all the clutter and pare that list down to just 3 things (all the feelings, but just 3 actual goals). These are your priorities… your current hearts desires. This is where your energy should go and which direction you need to set off in when the momentum takes you.

Remember something else important too… when you set off towards your destiny, it sets off in search of you. That’s gonna be a bit shit if you’re running blindly in the opposite direction so get focused. What’s another few days, weeks, months?

When the ride sets off, it will be the ride of your life, but for now you have to wait for the rollercoaster to fill up with the component parts and players… prepare…wait…

E is for…

th (1)

Exit apparently! No, seriously, E is for… exploration.

After we touched on the subject of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full and the readjustment of focus back towards your own major life goals in the last couple of posts, and particularly the need to prepare yourself for the task ahead regardless of the potential future obstacles that you may encounter that you have no control over, it’s now time to look at the pear (the goal), in fact the whole pear tree from a different angle.

Exploration in this case is about seeking out what feels right for you and indeed understanding what your options are. What’s right for you… again a Self-Full not selfish action. Fulfilling one’s own needs and emotional, spiritual and physical requirements isn’t about being independent its about being autonomous and responsible for at least your own part in your life story (I say your part because your life story is far from devoid of other characters) but if you reach the end and you didn’t at least do everything you could to reach your goals then you will leave this life with regrets, and how sad would that be? So first define your “pear,” (the goal) then prepare yourself in mind, body and spirit for the journey towards it and then start the exploration of options.

If your pear was Mount Everest, or reaching it’s summit, you would first have to consider how you’d like to climb it, right? There are many paths to climb a mountain and Everest had more than one face. Sure, people are going to tell you, your unorthodox choice is impossible and you should settle for a tried and tested route but will that be the best route for YOU? You’re going to have to choose a guide. Some look better than others, some have more ornate base camps, flashy stationery and better insurance, but the old local guy in the furs has lived with the mountain his entire life so ask yourself what the goal is again: is it to get to the top of the mountain or to ensure your family get a good pay out when you fall off or get crushed under an avalanche?… Oh yes, get to the top of the mountain, (and safely back down of course). So explore your options and ensure you choose those options through love and not fear, through passion for the project. Whatever your pear may actually represent, there is a reason it grew upon your tree and to allow that fruit to rot or become windfall because somebody else’s dream or goal got in the way or because you were too afraid to try would be tragic.

P is for Preparation. Your preparation can continue through this process as now you have more specific information and can tailor and hone the physical prep.

E is for Exploration…

Be Self-Full today and I’ll back on Monday with the next instalment, meanwhile tomorrow is Oracle day so look out for that post.
