Grail Oracle – Faith In Yourself Above Everything

In this, my return to The Intuitive Chalice Oracle after a few of months hiatus, we see the first Principle: I AM God, come to the fore and partner with the intense violet energy of the crown chakra.

This highly spiritual combination might have you believing that everything is beyond your control and in the hands of the invisible realms of spirit, when in fact, it is reassurance that your Soul-Self, your higher wisdom has got you covered and is constantly guiding you towards taking greater steps forward, knowing full well that you have the power and capability of becoming the person you are only as-of-yet dreaming of becoming.

Life may have, up until this point, dealt you a few challenges that you have perceived as blows and as a result you may have lost faith in yourself and in your ability to make good choices, but with this combination to hold you up, you can rest assured that you are being guided and that part of you which is divine is switched on and ready to receive commands about your choices. Notice I said receive? Though it can guide you, only your physical, conscious self can choose to take action on that guidance, hence you must command the ship during this incarnation of your soul.

This is a time to align your ego with your higher will to start taking action towards the Soul’s mission.

You may be asking what that mission is and wondering what it is all about, but if you take a look at your surroundings, the circumstances of your life… for example your health, your home, you career, family, finances and your personal relationships, your level of well-being will ccome into incredibly sharp focus. That is your mission… to heal what is out of alignment in your own life and to aid others on the path beside you to heal theirs too.

If you are experiencing the unnerving feeling of “Who am I to help anyone else?” recognise that this is the ego’s voice and you have stepped so far away from your higher self that you are losing your way. Have faith in yourself above everything else because you didnt arrive here by accident. You were placed in the exact right circumstances at the exact time, with the exact set of tools to transform your world from suffering to healing through higher perspective. There is nothing you cannot acheive if you are brave enough to trust your own soul.

All that being said, the place to start your journey is through deep reflection and meditation. Make sure, after observing the outer circumstances, that you listen carefully to your higher guidance to truly discern what your soul advises, rather than the knee-jerk reactions of your lower, fearful ego self.

Preparing On Purpose

Be prepared. What does that even mean? As the motto of a boy scout it seems like a worthwhile pursuit, but how exactly do you expect to be prepared for the unexpected?

You are prepared, at least as well as you can be, for whatever life has to throw at you, simply because you have spent your entire life preparing for this moment… yes, this one.

Everything that has ever happened to you, every person you have ever met, every conversation you have ever participated in, everything you have witnessed, experienced, learned and done, has been in preparation for this moment. You see, God does nothing by accident. If you look back at your life you can clearly see the synchronicity of each event and how it smoothly led to the next which eventually brought you to this place. And no matter how ready (or not) you felt to undergo each transition through initiation by fire, you got here… that means you were ready and life had prepared you for the level of success or failure it required to get you to the next step…

Success or failure?

Yep! That’s what I said. Only The Great Unseen has the big picture and so what you see, as success may actually be the opposite of the catalyst you need to move the pieces across the cosmic chessboard towards your destined outcome, big picture success could require small detail failure, at least for now. But win or lose, the experience is the preparation for the next bit.

Now of course the boy scouts could be referring to the contrived concept of preparing on purpose….

Imagine for a moment you’re about to go on a first date. What does preparation look like then? Oh my goodness the lengths we go to, just in case: scrubbed, shaved, waxed, buffed, plucked, preened… moisturised, manicured, and that’s all before we select the perfect outfit… do we wear super-sexy, girl next door, casual, formal? What about shoes? Oh yeah, and do we go for the Bridget Jones knickers or the matching skimpy set? Now if you’re a boy I’d imagine the process is similar if a little less lengthy and stereotypically more focused on whether your car is waxed and buffed than your body, but what’s the point of all of this?

Are you now preparing on purpose for every possible eventuality or are you simply focusing on the external causes of your own lacking self-esteem in an attempt to convince yourself that you can cover up your imperfections? If that’s the case than I suggest that your preparation time would be better spent on learning to appreciate how beautiful you are from the inside out. Nothing is more attractive that confidence, self- love and the ability to shine your Divine essence in spite of outward appearance.

This applies to all events and encounters… you are ready now for whatever Big G sends your way…. if you aren’t ready, it won’t arrive anyway. Remember this: you are in exactly the right place at the right time, with all the appropriate training and wherewithal for whatever is coming your way. Succeed or fail, win or lose… this moment is yours. Don’t waste it on wondering if you have the right knickers on. If it’s worth all the fuss then the fuss won’t matter.

The Guilty Party

Grail Oracle 3Grail Oracle Yellow

I can’t believe I pulled this exact combination just two weeks ago in The Ego’s Trap! Persistent energy shows an unresolved dynamic and so let’s delve a little deeper into this combo…

Once again Principle 3: I AM Human jockeys with the yellow energy of the solar plexus chakra in a bid to create fear or cheer. The Guilty Party forces us to look at our failures and fears, our inmate human fallibility with compassion and forgiveness, but often before we arrive at those 5th dimensional qualities of grace we have to explore lower vibrations like shame and guilt to name just a couple. These judgements we make about our mistakes are often confused with the truth of who we are and we begin to see ourselves as the action, for example: “I am a failure” rather than “I have failed.”

This week you are being asked to take a leap into a familiar feeling potential-for-failure type situation but this time you are being asked to replace your fearful and self-accusatory thoughts with positive affirmations in order to short circuit what must have at some point felt like a losing streak.

Remember that when you walk into a room, no matter how many times you’ve been through that very same door, this time, with a positive outlook you could attract the successful greeting that you have been hoping for. You alone have the power to determine your success or failure and it begins with self-belief.

I believe in you.

More next week… x
