Weekly Oracle – The Faith To Remain Faithful

Any time we see the crown chakra present itself in The Intuitive Chalice Oracle we know that deep spiritual questions are being presented to us. This deep violet energy centre that connects us to the Divine through devotion, meditation and prayer, equally connects the Divine directly to us in response through insight, higher wisdom and guidance. The Divine speaks through our dreams and inspiration, by tapping into the collective consciousness from which we have never actually been separated.

When we enter into conversation with this universal force also known as God, among many other names, we have an expectation of faith from God to cherish us as children and not forsake our supplication, i.e. we expect to be heard and answered. By this same token, there is a necessity to remain faithful that this prayerful activity will be heard and answered in the way Source deems fit. Faith and trust have to be mutual.

When Principle 7: I AM Open-Heated shows up in a reading alongside this energy, the Grail within you is questioning whether or not you have the faith to remain faithful. Open-Heartedness is the ability to give and receive in equal measure highlighting the universal laws of balance, karma and consequence. What we give out we receive. Effectively meaning if you have faith you will be given reason to stay faithful.

Don’t misunderstand the term faithful here… we are not talking about earthly sexual fidelity and monogamy, faith in this case is an act of grace: acceptance, allowing, patience, dedication and devotion to something much greater than you and the ability to continue to believe in the power of prayer.

Some people call it focused intention, manifestation, the law of attraction… it basically entails matching the frequency of the outcome you wish to engender… without wavering, losing hope or giving up. It also requires you to remain open and flexible as to how the answer shows up.

All that being said, do you have the faith to remain faithful?

Your prayers can truly be answered this week if you are open to receiving, hearing, responding, allowing, accepting… you just have to trust God to know when, where, how, who and what it is you really need now.

Spend some time in conscious communication with the Divine through meditation… He won’t let you down, only you can do that by giving up.

Weekly Oracle – A Doorway Opens

It’s been a few weeks since The Sacred Chalice presented itself and it is my belief that this is an opportunity we should take full advantage of as a doorway opens.

I’ve been quiet on the site for the last couple of weeks whilst processing some deep internal stuff. Not bad stuff, just my stuff. Examining my truest hopes, wants, needs, dreams and desires, listening to my soul’s calling and understanding the path I chose with new appreciation and wonder. During this time I’ve also been assessing what I don’t want, as if sorting the chaff from the wheat.

My connection the the angels has meant some very intense etheric conversations about my motives and my expectations and the exploration of those sometimes deeply buried answers, has led me to the most beautiful realizations…

But what has my stuff got to do with this weeks oracle?

The Oracle at Delphi states above the entrance “Know Thyself.” It is my belief that when you truly know your own heart all else follows.

This is a week where surprise communications bring the news you have been waiting for. Offers, invitations and opportunities follow and lay the groundwork shaping the next part of the journey. This is a one-step-at-a-time process and a once in a lifetime gift, but it also has paradoxical influences…

The paradox is that something that you have worked hard to heal within yourself must now reflect that healing in the outside world, which may mean that the surprise might just arrive from someone with whom there has been past tension exploring reconnection.

The Sacred Chalice can represent either the full overflowing cup of abundance or it can represent the upturned and spilled vessel of fear and lack. It can be love or the absence of it, health and vitality or illness and frailty… whatever the apparent state of the presented Chalice, it always represents sudden shifts and the potential for miracles. You get to choose how to receive The Sacred Chalice: hope, open-heartedness, gratitude and positive expectation mean that you will always receive the blessing regardless of the form the gift takes… make sure that love is your guide this week.

A doorway opens when you are ready to travel the next stretch of the journey, and the next stretch is set to be the most beautiful you’ve experienced so far, it’s a road you will want to travel for many years to come… don’t fear a tentative start. It’s ok to be unsure of your new circumstances as long as you are sure of what lives inside your heart.

I don’t know about you but I’m holding out my hands and opening my heart to receive… This time I know the gift is for me and I won’t waste it.

Conscious Connection Final Part – Dance With Me

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is the final offering in the Conscious Connection series also known as The Wholly Grail’s Guide to relationships. If you missed the earlier parts to the series you can catch up with Part 1 here, Part 2 here and Part 3 here.

Principle 7. Dance with me, giving and receiving in equal measure the love that flows through us, amplified by our mutual intent to serve one another.

To truly open one’s heart to love, one must also be open to pain, to disappointment and to the apparent cruelty of the 3rd dimensional world, for in essence all is experience and all serves. But when one becomes a pure clear channel for unconditional love, having transcended the ego’s need for security and validation, having moved beyond the attachment of ownership and stepped fully into the role of the observer, when the door has finally closed on the transgressions of yesterday washed away by the clear waters of forgiveness and each stands in a place of empowerment fully ready to take responsibility for thier own well-being… there is nothing left to do but dance.

This is a state where passion, drama and angst have given way to something deeper…  peace, honour, humility, knowing. This is a place where words become irrelevant and connection is simply the flow between hearts, where letting go means to trust, to have faith and understanding, and where all is healed.

The dance occurs at soul level long before the ego ever learns the steps, and those lucky enough to move beyond the karmic residue and emotional baggage that must first be danced around before they may ever achieve unity and dance together… those, referred to as twin flames are given the keys to heaven here on earth: The Divine Marriage, true partnership. Yin and Yang locked in eternal embrace, spinning in infinity united by the only thing that is real in this universe: love.

So dance with me… dance until the karma gives way to love, until drama gives way to peace, until the darkness gives way to light and the Grail cup overflows into every aspect of existence… where love spills, new life grows.

This may have been a poetic look at relationships through the Principles of The Grail but if you would like a more comprehensive look at the dynamics of your relationships, whether romantic or otherwise then take advantage of my Valentine Offer throughout February.

Saturday Oracle – Closing The Gates

The universe is generally a benevolent entity, it’s nature being that of expansion: more, more, more to the point that we often get much more than we can comfortably handle. Positive or negative, good or bad is beside the point and pertains merely to individual preference. You might argue that the universe is just as adept at taking things away, but from a different perspective that could be interpreted as it giving you an opportunity to learn to get along without whatever it was or get creative with what replaces it, after all they say nature abhors a vacuum.

This week’s combination sees Principle 1: I AM God team up with the exuberant yellow of the solar plexus which is often referred to as the seat of personal power or the home of the ego…

Quite a combination.

When your divinity and your ego become partners you become a magnet for all the gifts the universe has set aside for you, but when these two don’t get along and your fearful ego forgets that it is/you are God/Source in human form, that’s when you stop the flow of abundance like closing the gates of heaven and locking yourself on the outside.

This week you have the opportunity to recognise how worthy you are of all good things. The solar plexus is also the centre for bliss, joy and laughter, it’s your guidance system and your centre of preference. It’s called ‘solar’ because it radiates like the sun and invites life to orbit around it, making it also your point of attraction but if fear, low self-esteem and a lack of self-worth fuelled by the disconnection of or failure to recognise your divinity is in play then you will not only stop receiving but energetically reject it and reverse its flow.

In short: a gift from heaven is on its way but you have to recognise it, receive it and know that you are worthy of it and ready for it.

This could come in the any number of forms but most likely it will be a recurrence of something that has shown potential before, something you’ve been waiting for or something that you thought you had previously missed out on… it was just waiting for you to be ready… waiting for you to open the gates.

Have an amazing week… you are worthy… x

 

 

Saturday Oracle – Effortless Exchange Of Energy

Receptivity is a vulnerable state for many, that stems somewhat from a sense of being unworthy of the gift being bestowed or of the apparent generosity of the being that delivers the gift on the universe’s behalf, but this is a week for the effortless exchange of energy as the universe serves up the very thing that provides for your needs.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, meets the red base chakra in this week’s combination offering you a miracle… The form it takes depends on what you most need for your physical protection at this time. Don’t misunderstand me, you are not in any danger, the universe has always been one step ahead of you, but your lower mind has conjured up evidence of some threat or other that often accompanies great change.

As the base chakra tends to your safety, security, health and material wealth, this gift will offer you relief where one of these areas feels uncertain. It may be a physical offer of help from another, advice or the delivery of, to or from what you need.

Where this Principle would normally have you questioning whether to take the gift on offer, there is a huge difference between want and need. This is a need. The effortless exchange of energy comes as you don’t think twice before gratefully accepting the benevolence coming your way in the exact form you need it, as if you were dying of thirst in a desert and the universe provided a well right before you couldn’t possibly take another step. When the need is great, acceptance is without question.

You spent last week being honest about what your needs are… this is the week to get them met.

Wishing you a permanent reprieve from whatever ails you.

That One Thing You Do

(Reposted from July 5th)

I’ve been exploring for myself the polar opposites of resistance and receptivity over the last couple of days and its thrown up some evidence of the route to what can only be described as my joy zone.

I don’t know that I ever really saw it as a tangible thing before, a place even, but I’ve noticed that it has distinct walls and boundaries like a huge castle with a drawbridge, a moat and everything. Imagine if you will the very tentative steps you might take across the rickety wooden, (rotten in some places) bridge, over a muddy moat full of goodness knows what, obviously an analogy for your deep emotions, some of which are hidden even from you; passing beneath a gargantuan rusting portcullis that noisily begins to lower as you enter into this space that is protected from that stuff on the outside.

Does this sound like the joy zone or does it sound like a giant prison of your own making and not much fun at all?

That one thing you do – that image that you create – that scene that you set, it’s the difference between resistance to the journey and receptivity of the adventure… The difference between opening your heart to the unknown or running from it… The difference between finding the joy or embracing the fear.

Imagine now if you will a huge bouncy castle, a rainbow of sunny colours making up its walls. It is afloat at the centre of an azure blue swimming pool, the drawbridge is made from plastic inflatable stepping stones that threaten to tip you splashing into the blue beneath if you so much as put one foot wrong… The bouncy castle sports a plastic zip up entry flap to keep its guests from falling out all over the place which will be securely fastened the moment you cross its threshold…

Now tell me the truth… you’ve already got your swimming costume on haven’t you?

The scene has exactly the same elements: castle, walls, sealed gate, precarious crossing and deep water… but add some colour to your imagination and the joy zone is much more enticing.

The joy zone is a place inside your mind, the external conditions are accepted or rejected according to how you perceive from your current state of receptivity… i.e. you add the colour.

I’ve got to admit, my castle isn’t always bouncy but that doesn’t mean I won’t find joy in it… if you are looking for joy, you will find it… providing you’re looking past the external conditions towards that one thing you do.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted

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.

Weekend Wonderment – Navigating The Narrowest Channel

(Reposted from June 30th)

The path of least resistance isn’t always obvious until you step foot upon it. Oftentimes we agonize over the choices laid out before us, trying to discern between a rock and a hard place but usually between a rock and a hard place is sliver of light, a chink in the armour of reality that we observe as the boarder or boundary between options instead of an option in its own right. Navigating the narrowest channel is simply a matter of taking the brakes off and allowing Source to carry you toward the next set of options.

Take communications between two parties for example. In difficult situations where there appears to be much at stake and neither side is entirely sure of how the other will react to direct approach; face to face negotiation/reconciliation has proven a logistical improbability, convenience, timezones, the rising expectations versus many misunderstandings making phone calls potentially explosive interactions, what does it leave? A narrow channel of creative expression written in the name of universal wisdom (Principle 4: I AM Truth) in hope that the target audience may be paying attention? It might not be a guaranteed option but it is certainly the path of least resistance until such time that another option or opportunity presents itself.

Sometimes that channel becomes so tight though, cutting off parts of the previously available slipstream, that the path of least resistance begins to change direction. In the communication scenario, supposing that the information, however limited it may previously have been, becomes obscured or hidden from view? Less universal and accessible? Communication may slow to a drip or completely unless the embargo is somehow lifted or another way around the obstacles is found.

Perhaps in this case the path of least resistance is to let go completely and accept that all good things come to an end. Source has a plan and when obstacles keep showing up to block your progress maybe it isn’t just another test, maybe it’s a celestial stop sign, like an oracle or omen you cannot read, or a map that doesn’t show north.

For my own journey, currently filled with new learning and potential in many areas, the path of least resistance in others has begun to narrow significantly. Though the slipstream still exists and a miracle is still possible, if the messages cannot get through the magic stops.

I’m optimistic that God will show me a new path, a wider path with increased incoming flow (Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted)… whether that flow will come from the same origin or a new source of inspiration I don’t know, but I’m open to surfing the channel that has least resistance… for too long I’ve been trying to fight against a current that’s been flowing in opposition to my chosen destination but I cannot fight no current at all.

A rock, a hard place, the path of least resistance… what’s your chosen path this weekend?
