Weekly Oracle – At Peace With Progress

Being at peace with progress is the central theme of this week’s Intuitive Chalice Oracle combination, as Principle 2: I AM Detached, joins forces with the blood red base chakra which has appeared for us again this week. Whereas last week the arrival of this chakra had us focusing on health issues (I didn’t come out of it unscathed having had minor surgery on a dodgy elbow midweek), this week is more focused on our material wellbeing and security…

For some time now you may have been aware on a subconscious level of an incoming change. Transformation, even when positive, brings a certain amount of upheaval to your life and you have worked hard to release emotional attachments to anything that might hold back any necessary movement from one way of life to another. 

All of us, regardless of how conscientious, create ties and strings as we go through life. They may take the form of family, friendships, partnerships, contracts, jobs, salaries, possessions, property, etc, all of which have us forming roots of a sort that keep us bound but also keep us feeling safe, secure and give us a sense of belonging, which is in many cases necessary for our well-being and for us to thrive. Before you can grow or transform your circumstances you must loosen your grip on some or all of these things to allow a new set of ties and strings to take hold. It doesn’t mean you don’t love and appreciate what you have, it is simply that you acknowledge change as being inevitable and to some extent you understand that the soul’s journey is far more valuable than any anchor that may hold it back… if you fight change you begin to wither in the bud.

Let’s say for instance that you are a home-body, (I always have been), the kind of person who does like to explore but always feels relief when returning to the place you grew up, the place you still call home. This is where your roots are. Now imagine you meet your soulmate and after many years of living and working apart there’s a feeling that the time might be right to join your lives together and potentially commit to a united future. Now imagine that your soulmate is a proverbial nomad, currently living abroad, their work has them constantly on the move, and living in your neck of the woods for any more than a fleeting visit would be near impossible… one of you will have to give up the lifestyle you have… even if you don’t particularly aspire to the other’s way of life, because love and connection and union is far more important than an address.

The week’s energies suggest that you had got yourself, at least emotionally, into a place where you were willing to let go of all that you have and all that you know, (your security and safety), to take a mammoth leap into uncertainty to follow your soul’s calling, but that now something, someone perhaps, has highlighted just how unstable that choice is and your worry has elevated to a point where all bets are off.

Principle 2 demands that you stay present in the moment where all your power is. The power you gathered has now been spread to the four winds and your grip on what is known has tightened because the one thing that felt secure about letting go has been sullied somehow. (In the above scenario maybe the connection between you and your soulmate is being tested by insecurity, (theirs and yours), or a miscommunication of some kind.

This maybe a week where you feel like you are back to square one and any and all progress you made up to this point has been lost… that isn’t so, you are experiencing a temporary set back, a restriction of movement that will in fact enable a smoother transition later on. The key is to keep your eye on the intended outcome whilst remaining focused on what is, and keep lines of communication open in order to learn more about the true nature of the complication from all angles.

It will soon be safe to let go and you can one again be at peace with progress.

Modus Operandi Part 2 – Have You Wandered Off?

Continuing a theme from the other day, I thought we might once again explore our Modus Operandi, our method of operating in the world, asking this time: “have you wandered off?”

When studying the seven Principles of The Wholly Grail, believing ourselves to be fully embracing and honouring them, we often find that what we imagine ourselves to be doing and what we are actually doing are two different things…

I’m currently a good case and point. Presently succumbed to a minor bout of adrenal fatigue due to prolonged stress that I didn’t keep in check. I say minor because luckily I recognised the signs and took steps (Principle 6: I AM Self-Full) to detach from my stressors and to self-heal through rest, meditation, and bringing my full focus back to the present moment… I had wandered off into the future and stayed there too long, a place with no substance and certainly no sustenance.

Principle 2: I AM Detached gives us an instruction to remain present. Now, whilst we are attempting to manifest something into our lives we must point our attention to an imagined future and often make plans or take steps in the present to move in that direction, but if you are constantly pulled to what is promised or equally as detrimental: what has already gone, then we create stress, anxiety and worry energy that depletes the adrenal energy and forms an unsolvable conundrum within the forebrain, a problem that cannot be reconciled and therefore becomes a loop that brings us back to the same question over and over.

In order to fully embrace Principle 2, you have to jolt yourself loose from the infinite possibilities that only time and God can resolve, which is not always easy when loved ones and those with whom you have a shared vision constantly draw your attention to the potential in an effort to build excitement… excitement and suspense are both indicators that you are once again being pulled forward… and so starts the feedback loop again… compounding yet more stress. There will always be those who help to fuel your drama for their own ends.

Personally, I work a bit like a pressure cooker, every so often under these circumstances I will “blow off steam,” usually right before stress makes me ill. This tendency towards becoming a stress head was what led me to define the Grail in the first place.

So then, what’s your Modus Operandi? Have you wandered off too far into the shadow world of tomorrows or yesterdays?

You can use “I AM Detached” as an affirmation to help bring you back to the present moment, but it’s worth monitoring for a little while, maybe a day, where your mind wanders off to when you aren’t paying attention… that’s where all your energy is leaking and your Grail cup is spilling its precious life affirming contents.

Saturday Oracle – Free Your Mind From Worry

Worry is the single most useless type of thought process you can apply your mind to, and yet it is also a fairly universal preference. I say preference because we have a choice, and if we have a choice and still choose worry then surely it’s because we prefer it? Isn’t it time to free your mind?

This week’s combination includes Principle 5: I AM Liberated, the affirmation of letting yourself out of a prison born of matter with the highly spiritual violet crown chakra. These two are are a prescription for remedial action where worry is concerned.

So the potential for the week ahead then is finding yourself being drawn into negative thought patterns and false beliefs about something or someone, that have been keeping you locked into your current set of circumstances and unable to move forward. It’s important to get to grips with the fact that neither the object nor the individual have any power over you, it is your thoughts about the subject that control your action or inaction.

Interrupting the worry habit is key to rectifying the detrimental effects on your physical and emotional life and there are a few ways you can do that… this particular combination is recommending meditation as an antidote, distraction is another that simply takes you filling idle time where your mind has too much opportunity to wander back to the familiar, with concentrated effort or new learning.

Worry is usually about loss of some kind, whether that be loss of material attachments, loss of status, loss of comfort, loss of tribal bonds and relationships, loss of reputation, loss of health and finally loss of life. Worry won’t fix any of those things and that’s why finding perspective through witnessing your life from a higher platform during meditation can help you firstly release your mental and emotional grip on whatever recurring thought has you held prisoner, and secondly will allow your higher self to switch you to solution based deliberation.

You may not actually be in danger of losing the object of your apparent distress at all and in that case the energy you expend fretting about it may be causing issues of its own.

All 7 Wholly Grail Principles are free to view on my website for a better understanding of how this philosophy works to find peace and freedom in your own life.

This Great Game

Everything you are worrying about right now is an option and the current options available to you are thus: there’s the easy way and there’s the hard way. These two options and these two options only are what go entirely towards making up what we term free will. There is a much greater plan at work here, and if you understand that you also understand that it means that all the chess pieces are destined to be at a certain position at a certain time by divine decree.

Whether you are a king, a queen, a pawn or a knight, you have a role to play in this great game and the way you play your role determines the depth and intensity of the game… but you’ll get where you’re going one way or another.

Worrying about which direction to choose is simply you choosing the hard way, the less enjoyable way. It’s a massive drain on your energy and even if you do get round to making a decision, the worry has robbed you of some of the joy of advancing across the board and then the best you can hope for is relief… though relief isn’t unpleasant, it isn’t exactly the ecstasy you were hoping for either, is it.

I want to liken this feeling to the teenagers out there undertaking their exams around now. Remember back to when you took yours and ask yourself how many times you’ve used that particular information and whether you would be living a different existence now if you had failed? We put too much pressure on ourselves to get it right. Too much pressure on each other for that matter.

You’re going where you’re going and it doesn’t matter how you get there. Just for today, as an experiment, give it up to God and the angels to deal with the details… stick the whole situation in your “Too Difficult” bucket and surrender to the flow. Let spirit choose your next move on life’s chessboard.

Principle 2: I AM Detached.
