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!

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Deftly Handling Ecstasy.

Sssh, I want to share a secret with you: today’s mind manoeuvre is actually about stepping out of the confines of your mind altogether and fully into your beautiful body.

What a gift we were given when we agreed to incarnate into the physical to experience the ultimate pleasure of form and friction. That being said, how many of us wander through life stuck in our heads and fail to even notice the sensations associated with life.

The human body is an incredibly sensitive instrument that has the power to transform spirit into matter, to literally make manifest more life in myriad forms… and then to interact with all it’s creations. But we dismiss all our physical creations as man made and undermine the miracle that it took to give life to an idea that originated as an abstract string of energy that coalesced into a thought before being birthed into form.

I watched an aeroplane fly overhead yesterday and was struck by the enormity of what I was witnessing… someone, somewhere in a bygone age, looked up to the heavens and saw a bird soaring in the great blue beyond and said to themself, “Oh that I might see life from God’s perspective just as that bird does. Oh that I might know such freedom as flight.” Not understanding fully that he or she also had God’s perspective and the perspective God observed was the potential for man to fly… but today we have forgotten and such miracles have become commonplace.

When your spirit fully occupies your own vessel, life flows through you and everything is made new. No matter how many times you have seen it, felt it, breathed it, tasted it, smelled it or heard it, you will do so as if it was the very first time…

Housing the Holy Spirit, which is divine consciousness, is only possible when you release resistance and surrender to what is… losing control and revelling in it, revelling in sensation is what God created you for. Deftly handling ecstasy is not about gratuitously indulging in “the pleasures of the flesh” (unless you want you), it is about allowing all experience to educate and inform you to the universal presence of, and connection to All-That-Is.

It’s Monday, you are probably all up in your head and completely disconnected from the neck down… it’s just a means of getting you from here to there and its functions are most probably a hindrance in your schedule, right? I mean, who has time to savour lunch, smile at the warmth of the sun on your face or acknowledge the gentle brush of your clothes over your skin?

It takes just a moment to enjoy a sensation, any sensation… and that moment might just be the happiest, most enjoyable, innocent and yet simply divine interlude of your day.

Give yourself permission to feel.

E.g. if you’ve been looking down at your mobile device to read this, how does your neck feel right now? If you needed me to tell you to notice it’s a bit stiff then you are disconnected… stretch, give it a rub… enjoy.

Principles 1, 3 & 6

Have a sensational Monday… 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.

Saturday Oracle – The End Of The Road

Go on, ask me if I’m surprised this one came up?

I choose the relevant combinations simply by allowing my hands to hover over the backs of the face down cards to discern where the energy accumulates and is more intense… today the Sacred Chalice was all but screaming at me. The only card that is neither a Grail Principle nor does it need an accompanying chakra card because it’s message is basic: “This is it.”

“This is what?” You may well ask.

This is the end of the road.

You can no longer keep doing what you’ve been doing in the way that you’ve been doing it and total surrender is now the order of the day.

The card has both positive and negative aspects so don’t make assumptions. On the one hand you may have hit rock bottom and be in need of a miracle because your life cannot continue this way, but on the other, the arrival of the miracle or jackpot itself also means your life cannot continue the way it did. Change is change, the end is the end, whether you view it as a windfall or a wipeout.

This of course is the weekend associated with resurrection which literally describes the death of the old and rising up as something new, and you will have a very strong notion already of which area of your life this applies to. Don’t try to hold onto the old paradigm, it no longer serves you.

When The Sacred Chalice shows up, whether good or not so much, it requires you to go back to basics, creating a solid foundation upon which to build from. Here I recommend following Principle 6: I AM Self-Full to focus on your primary needs and self care, especially as any change, even a major lottery win or finding and falling in love with Mr Right, will cause a jolt to the system.

The chalice symbolically represents the womb and is therefore always about nurturing oneself and allowing your higher power to provide a place of safety and sustenance materially and energetically.

Eat well, sleep well, meditate often and exercise gently to disperse any accumulation of stress hormones, preferably out in nature if the weather allows, and finally, ask for support from loved ones if you need it. ¬†Though it may not be time to announce to the world what’s going on, a beloved or trusted friend can be the difference between joyful transformation and struggling in isolation.

I pray your Chalice be filled with joyful blessings, but I know they really are blessings even if you cannot see how that’s the case at present.

The enormity of the energy of this card makes me wishing you fluffy Easter Bunnies and a basket full of miracles seem a little frivolous, but I do.

Saturday Oracle – Limitless Inner Cosmos

This week’s combination comes with an overwhelming feeling… it’s the sensation of knowing, knowing beyond intellectual comprehension that you are a limitless inner cosmos.

Principle 3: I AM Human, fully integrates the violet essence of the crown chakra and it suddenly becomes possible to transcend perceived human potential. Ask yourself this: what are you truly capable of?

There is an aspect of this combination that denotes divine grace and even mercy when all previous constraints and limitations are removed and heaven, through you or a fellow human being begins to move mountains. The image here is of the mother lifting a car off her trapped child with apparent superhuman strength in a moment where her objective, motivated by unconditional love removes all physical inadequacies to produce a miracle.

Though the energy may not play out as dramatically as that in your own life, you may not actually part the Red Sea or resurrect a random stranger, you should see seemingly insurmountable odds being beaten this week and all in the name of love.

Love is the highest purpose in the universe (as far as I can tell) and nothing can withstand its absolute power. Any action you take in the next few days, unconditionally, will not only be blessed but be facilitated by angels (even those in human form).

Count forgiveness amongst your superhero armoury too as its energy rips down barriers, builds bridges and connects the disconnected. What with this full moon, new year comet and the power created by the masses focused on the energy of love for Valentine’s Day, though romance is not the message of this week’s reading, deeper love, spiritual love, soul love is highlighted as being the one thing that releases us from our self imposed bondage to become the masters of our own experience and rise up… rise up to meet ourselves as we were designed to be.

When your higher self has full access to your mind and physical vessel, you embody Christ Consciousness and you finally understand that you are completely loveable and loved… and when you are loved, you are invincible.

Welcome to a week of the most powerful you.
