Find Peace In The Present & Increase Faith In The Path

I know you are wondering how this will all turn out, like the rest of us at the moment. I’m not surprised this combination about the need to find peace in the present & increase faith in the path came out of The Intuitive Chalice Oracle for the month ahead.

When the 2nd Principle of the Grail: “I AM Detached,” teams up with the calming violet of the Crown Chakra, we are being asked to remember that this moment holds so much power.

Our ability to connect to higher wisdom and consciousness is paramount to create the outcome that we want but will not be controlled by the ego mind.

Unfortunately, in it’s negative element, this combination can also suggest that we are being persuaded by the collective consciousness, into a mindset that can be detrimental to that calm and peaceful resolution we are seeking.

Find peace in the present

Depending on your situation right now, whether you are solitary or holed-up with your family, will have an enormous baring on your state of mind. If your surroundings are not comfortable or there is no escape from the noise and opinions of others, then this is going to be a particularly difficult time to find the space you need to go within and go higher, through practices like meditation, yoga or breathwork. Similarly if you are you are isolated from others entirely, too much alone time thinking and even browsing social media can create loops within the mind that get stuck on playback and don’t allow you to dissengage from the chatter.

Being present requires a balance of introversion and extroversion, so now is the time, if you haven’t done so already, to create designated space in your home and schedule to do both.

Can you create family time that involves games, dancing and singing? Can you incorporate preparing meals and household tasks as a team sport or competition? Then, at the opposite end of the spectrum, can you designate quiet time where you all go to your designated spaces/rooms for introspection and make that media-free… reading books, writing/journaling, meditation, learning new skills, working out, gardening etc. This could also be a good time for self-care and pampering.

Focus on gratitude to stay in the now

It is so easy to project into an unknown future and miss the beauty of what is surrounding us at the moment. It is just as easy to yearn for the routines you built for yourself that have been temporarily stripped away, but it is the beginning of peace to find the blessings in the current situation and speak aloud how grateful you are for them. Try incorporating this as a daily practice, not just for April but as a life commitment to train your mind to be focused on the gold hidden in every circumstance.

Increase faith in the path

As this is a spiritual oracle post, I’m going to make a wild assumption that you believe in a Higher Power and a Divine Plan. If that is the case, then consider this to be a test of faith and an opportunity to step into your soul’s care, with trust and surrender to what will be. Let go of the fearful thoughts that are fuelled by the mass media and the constant barrage of what is loosely termed “news” and instead, let your connection to the highest aspect of you steady your resolve and inform your every action from a place of love and optimism. Believe in the beauty of the path and that when you find peace in the present, you automatically increase your faith in your future.

Let’s begin this gratitude practice now… Let me know in the comments below: What 3 things you are most grateful for that bring you peace, that you might not have noticed before this began?

Saturday Oracle – Too Much Of A Good Thing

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

After last week’s oracle encouraged us to embrace the wild side, this week’s combination seems a little concerned that we might just go from indulgence to over-indulgence to compulsive and addictive negative behaviours.

Principle 3: I AM Human teams up with the bright yellow solar plexus to bring us a bit of a dual message here: on the one hand there’s the addiction to potential self-abuse which I’ll come to in a moment and on the other, there’s the underlying reason for it… failed expectations.

The solar plexus is the seat of personal power and the house of the ego. When it takes a metaphorical beating it seeks to self-sooth and suppress that feeling. People take to all sorts of numbing techniques to achieve this from overeating, shopaholism, alcoholism and drug abuse to name but a few… what start out as a fun time, a treat or an indulgence, when taken to the extreme, become a dangerous spiral towards self-destruction.

As this week opens, so too do potential reminders of personal failure and disappointment that will, while you’re attempting to escape from or forget, have you racing towards the distractions, that you hope will fill the gaping hole that seems to be forming in the pit of your stomach.

There is a way back to balance and it begins with recognising your patterns. Principle 3: I AM Human, is a key reminder of the need for forgiveness, first and foremost of self. When you acknowledge that you are human and therefore perfectly imperfect, you give yourself permission to let go of the self punishment. Forgiveness is not an ideal its a healing aspect of grace, but it takes the courage to first admit that some things are out of your control… like the past… like the future… There is a much bigger energy at play than the human aspect of each of us as individuals and when we bow to this Higher Power, admit to the pain we’ve been until now trying to numb and allow this all encompassing energy fully into our lives, Spirit fills the spaces with pure light and love and there is nothing left to try to fill….

This is the true meaning of an overflowing cup… (not the one you filled with calories or worse as a substitute).

Let God in.

The Power To Survive Anything

Upon waking this morning I was overcome with a sense of internal invulnerability that I haven’t felt in a long time. It comes ahead of a weekend filled with a full moon, a weird cosmic alignment, a comet etc… but more importantly it comes ahead of change. Maybe unprecedented change.

We always know when change is approaching because we are wired to understand at least on a subtle level the nuances and invisible fluctuations of the energy moving towards us, as the chakra system acts as a sequence of receivers and transmitters constantly interpreting the environment we live in… that’s what a sixth sense is.

Maybe you have noticed a subtle change in the behaviour of another or that the message has changed in even the tiniest of ways; a minute drop in temperature that warns you of incoming weather or birdsong that registers unconsciously as the approach of spring?

Change is neither good nor bad, change just is. And its essential to the cycle of life too, without it we stagnate. Not knowing what change is on its way though can be a scary prospect. Then you get this feeling I’m experiencing…

The power to survive anything happens when you recognise that you already have survived… just arriving here on the planet, being born is an ordeal in itself and yet here you are. Chances are you have been through some pretty memorable stuff up to this point in your life too. I’ve survived bereavement multiple times, divorce, severe illness, near blindness, relationships both good and bad, financial expansion, financial collapse, connection and rejection… up as well as down and yet I’ve survived. I believe I will even survive death, (at least on a soul level) because according to Principle 1: I AM God…

That feeling of invulnerability comes not from a place of defiance or arrogance but instead from a humble place of acceptance that all is as it should be and all is part of the adventure. Any experience that is meant for me I open my arms and my heart and welcome with gratitude as a lesson and a blessing from an ever loving Divine Parent.

And once again  I ask to step simply and swiftly into the slipstream towards my miracles.

Quiet Please, Im Processing

Whenever you are amidst the tumultuous workings of a busy mind, the basics can get left behind in the interior swirl. Personally I have decided to take the day off… I almost didn’t write a post except to get my head in the game, which sounds like a contradiction doesn’t it? Take the day off/get your head in the game???

When I say take a day off its a day off from drama, from external influence and from distraction and getting my head in the game simply means to reconnect to my own core goals and ideals through deep meditation and connection to the angelic realm for guidance on which way to proceed.

The clutter that gets jammed up inside your head stops you from focusing on the most significant Principle of The Wholly Grail and that is simply to recognise that you are in fact the creator of your own life story and you have the power to build the chapters any way you want. Principle 1: I AM God sounds like a big pair of shoes to fill but those shoes come in your size too and you are not expected to stand in anyone else’s.

Getting clear on where you would like those shoes to take you needs a certain amount of discernment… if you are caught up in the eddy of outer appearances then you will no doubt be feeling a little unsure of which way next and even if you knew, how would you break loose of where you are at the moment?

“Quiet please, I’m processing” may have those who are used to having your attention feeling a little put out, but for you to steer your ship you have to get everyone else out of the control room, off the bridge and especially to get their hands off the wheel.

Whether you need an hour, a day, a week or an indefinite time out, you are worthy of your own peace.  You are brave enough to place a “do not disturb” on the door, a “hold my calls” on the phone and give yourself permission to come back to YOU.
