Spirit Message of the Day – It’s Time to Break-Through

Osho BreakthroughBREAKTHROUGH
“The predominance of red in this card indicates at a glance that its subject is energy, power, and strength. The brilliant glow emanates from the solar plexus, or center of power on the figure, and the posture is one of exuberance and determination. All of us occasionally reach a point when ‘enough is enough’. At such times it seems we must do something, anything, even throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us. If we don’t, they threaten to suffocate and cripple our very life energy itself.”

“If you are now feeling that ‘enough is enough’, allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing. In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and empowerment this Breakthrough can bring to your life.”

zen red flower 2ZEN MESSAGE
“To transform breakdowns into break-throughs is the whole function of a master. The psychotherapist simply patches you up – that is their function. They are not there to transform you.” That is up to you. “It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough. Your internal chaos “is very ancient – for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself. So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course there is danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible.”

single sun flower“Zen, or meditation, is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert. The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will become darker.” 

Today’s inspirational message comes from OSHO Zen Tarot – The Transcendental Game of Zen by Osho.

Spirit Message of the Day – It’s Okay to Set Boundaries

viking shieldTHE VIKING SHIELD
“The Shield represents Protection and your outer Boundaries. If the Shield has been lifted for you today, it is here to teach you about your Boundaries and how you can learn to Protect yourself. You are entitled to a sacred space around your body, a space that is under your authority. Many people have learned to form and respect their outer Boundaries, and claimed their space inside them. If you have no outer Boundaries and are inclined to have people violate your privacy, you need to pull out the Shield to Protect yourself.”

viking ship“The Shield is not here to hide behind so that no one can reach you, but rather to provide you as an individual with a natural Protection in your environment. It is up to you to teach others how to respect your Boundaries. It is also up to you to decide whom you allow to enter your sacred space, a space you can imagine consisting of your auric field (hold your arms out from your sides and use them as a measure for the width of the field). Learn to say ‘Yes’ when appropriate and ‘No’ when your heart says so. If you examine your mind and listen to your heart, only to discover that your answer to a certain question is not yes, then it is definitely no. Concepts like ‘maybe’ or ‘later’ or ‘perhaps’ are really only substitutes for a ‘No’.”

freyja_goddessYOUR MESSAGE
Learn how to apply your Shield of Protection when you need to. Do not give in to others people’s pressures or demands or continue to do things to only please others and allow yourself to be taken advantage of, taken for granted, or trampled upon. Like everything in life, practice makes perfect – so have the courage to develop endurance to not give up and practice setting boundaries. 

Be careful not to hide yourself or true feelings from others thus using your Shield falsely. One should dare to tap their innate wisdom as to learn when to let their Shield down and genuinely connect with others and the world around them. Otherwise, you can easily become a prisoner of your own limitations and boundaries – and you will end up losing the chance to participate in life which constantly dances around you.  Make the choice today to use your intuition and actively participate in your own life, and know that it’s okay to set boundaries from time to time.

vikings3VIKING HISTORY
“Few things gave the Vikings more protection while on the warpath than their shields, and therefore they were an important part of their equipment when they went Viking. The shield gave protection against stones, spearheads, arrowheads, and the sharp points of swords and knives. The shield also diminished the effects of blows, and because of the protection it provided, men suffered fewer injuries when attacked.”

“Sometimes while in battle, the Vikings formed a wall of shields (a wall of protection). Men waited calmly behind it, ready to face the enemy and meet their destiny. The Vikings carved runes on their shields and dedicated them to certain Gods to enhance their protective powers. The shield was the Viking’s outer limit, his boundary, and no one could get behind it without meeting opposition. But the Vikings also knew how to let their shields down when that was appropriate, and enjoy life in a carefree manner.”

Today’s message comes from The Viking Cards by Gudrun G. Bergmann.

Spirit Message of the Day – Induce Your Quickening

folklore_heketTHE EGYPTIAN HEKET
“The Frog Goddess Heket was the divine midwife of ancient Egypt, the protector of new life. She was often depicted as a frog or as a woman with the head of a frog. Heket was frequently invoked to bring protection to the process of childbirth, or to defend the family unit and guard the home. Amulets and scarabs worn by women to protect them during the birthing process often bore her image, and she was also believed to bring relief to the mother. The influence of Heket was said to bring the first signs of life, or the quickening, to the unborn child, and to hasten the last stages of labor. Midwives were given the title ‘Servants of Heket’ in honor of their life giving work.”

winged scarabYOUR MESSAGE
“This is a time for enjoying the comfort, support and nourishment of your home life. It is important to concentrate on family concerns, close connections, and intimacy,  as well as the warmth and security that a good home can provide. If your home life is good then Heket urges you to celebrate that and encourages you to actively contribute to the harmony that you desire, whether you share your home with your parents, your partner, your lover, your children, or friends.”

“If your home life leaves something to be desired then the influence of Heket can give birth to new impulses that will help you to heal old conflicts or step out and create a more nourishing environment for yourself. This is a good time to move house, undertake repairs, do some decorating or upgrade your home comforts.”

heket in nileTHE SPIRITUAL MESSAGE
“On a higher level, you are given the opportunity to come home to yourself spiritually. It may be good to spend some time in quiet meditation, gentle contemplations and stillness. You may need to reduce your level of activity for a while so that you can give your energy and attention to the spiritual quickening that is occurring within you.”

The stone of Heket argurs a period of expectancy or birth. If you are thinking of starting a family or having another child then this is a fortune stone to choose. If, alternatively, you are giving birth to a new creative project then you are blessed with tender support and devoted loyalty from someone close to you. The good wishes of your intimate circle will help you to succeed. Remember to ask for their support when you need it and give thanks for all the love and care that you receive.”

POSITIVE AFFIRMATION
“I am my own healer and counselor.
My intuition grows and develops every day.
I give birth to new ideas and fresh inspirations.
I trust my instincts to guide me towards my greatest happiness.
I easily quicken my spiritual growth and development.
It is safe for me to bring new things into the world.
I am adaptable and strong.”

Today’s message comes from The Eye of Horus – An Oracle of Ancient Egypt by David Lawson.

Spirit Message of the Day – Listen to Your Head, Your Heart, and Your Home

Susan Seddon Boulet ArtThree Goddesses, Three Secrets
I have pulled three cards for today’s message. Each card represents a different aspect (Head, Heart, and Home) of the Goddesses you can tap into to help answer a critical question you may have today. Allow these secrets to assist you with a new or different way to approach a current challenge, situation, or opportunity. Listen to the wisdom from each Goddess and gently embrace the aspects of the intellectual, emotional, and physical nature. Notice how you might be able to apply these qualities or how they may directly relate to your situation or goal. 

How to Interpret the Cards and Aspects
crown-jewelsThe Head – Represents the pure mental qualities which can help you obtain the goal you desire. This card can help you look into your own head to gain perspective on the thought processes and attitudes that can affect the matter in question.

Heart

The Heart – Represents the pure emotional qualities to help offer gentle guidance for successfully dealing with the emotional aspects of the attainment of your goal. This card can help you identify your true feelings.

BodyThe Home
– Represents physical actions to help remind you that emulating those actions can help in attaining your goal. The word ‘Home’ here refers to the body, the temple where the Head and the Heart dwell.

To help remain open, the Goddesses request that you simply read the poem below out loud – to absorb and recognize each cards meaning, and better integrate its message with your specific situation or question.

Goddess Guide Me
“MY HEAD is ready to receive
new ways to think and to believe.
My thoughts are deeds;
their powers great.
My mind will help me rule my fate.
MY HEART will fill with feelings true
that will my weary heart renew.
Emotion’s waves,
they ebb and flow,
but I avoid their under-tow.
MY HOME is here. I feel secure.
This space is now a Temple pure
where I can safely speak my mind
and leave my hurt and fear behind.
It’s time to let my head and heart
align to bring me Cupid’s dart
or any other goal I seek.
It’s time to hear the Goddess Speak!”

Lisa Hunt ArtemisYOUR HEAD
Artemis – Goddess of Discernment
“Think Realistically. Clarify and simplify your plans and communications to keep misunderstanding to a minimum. Expect and be able to live with imperfection and occasional failure. Worry can be overcome if you focus on past successes, not past failures. Obsessive behavior must be seen as a threat to obtaining your goal. Criticize only for constructive purposes.”

lakshmiYOUR HEART
Lakshmi Goddess of Wisdom
“Feel open. The emotional experiences available to you must not be limited by yourself or others. When our hearts are free from fear and restriction we are able to explore all opportunities. Let go of limiting beliefs. Learn your life’s unique lessons. Be open to your truth, no matter what it may turn out to be. Faith in yourself is essential for your development.”

ErzulieYOUR HOME
Eurzulie Goddess of Sensitivity
“Go with the flow. It may be best if you would yield, at least temporarily. Withdraw, blend in or avoid directly confronting energies that oppose your best interests. Get out of your own way and let outside forces aid you in ways that you cannot even imagine. Use your psychic gift to guide you to your goal. Soon the passive nature of this time will be revealed as useful.”

YOUR MESSAGE FOR HEAD, HEART, AND HOME
(To Activate Today’s Message, Repeat This Affirmation and Invocation Below Out Loud Several Times)
“I clear my mind of complex thinking, worry and perfectionism to best attain my goal. I feel willing to explore all opportunities open to me for emotional growth and maturity. I adapt to conditions so I can spend my time creatively evolving ways to attain my goal at my own pace. I flow with the current in which I find myself.”

INVOKE THE GODDESSES
“Worry be Gone
Also my Fear
Dear Mother Earth
Will Ground Them Here.
Unveil my eye and let me see,
Reveal what has eluded me.
Let freedom, faith and honesty
Take me far on land and see.
I am a part of the waters of Life.
Where they flow, I will go,
Ending discord, hurt and strife.”

Today’s inspiration comes from The Oracle of the Goddess by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber. A similar and invaluable tool of theirs is called Goddess, Guide Me.

Spirit Message of the Day – Experience Gratefulness

Rachael Tallamy FairyTHANKFUL
“Think about the people and things you feel grateful for. Gratitude warms your heart with good feelings that are healthy for your mind and body. You can make yourself feel better by making a list of everything and everyone you’re thankful for. Gratitude replaces sadness, and makes everything go better.”

fairy_unicorn_upclose2“Gratitude is such a powerful way to make your life better that it’s almost magical! Everyone loves a thankful person. They want to be friends with, give to, and help a person who says ‘Thank You’. When you say thank you and really mean it, you find more reasons to feel gratitude.”

“People who aren’t grateful or who have self-pity actually make themselves sad. They cannot understand why other people avoid them, and why they don’t receive many gifts. They take away their own power because they believe that life doesn’t give them much. But if you count your blessings and think about all the reasons you have to feel grateful, they you’ll see how generous life really is.”

fairt and unicorn“The more that you believe that ‘life gives me lots of gifts’, the more you’ll receive. Then you’ll want to give to others, too.”

“To get more out of life, stop and feel grateful for all that you’ve received so far. Then, get ready to feel gratitude for countless blessings that are coming to you now!”

Today’s inspiration comes from Magical Unicorns – Oracle Guide Book by Doreen Virtue Ph.D.

Spirit Message of the Day – Trust your Instincts

Petal_Pusher,_White-Tailed_DeerDEER – The Pathfinder
“Trust your instincts to guide you through the situation. It’s a big forest out there, and I’m sure you feel a little lost some times. Let me tell you; however, that the path is well marked even if you can’t always make it out at any given moment. Come to your senses – literally -and stop thinking so much about it, or at least stop trying to figure out what to do or which way to go by analysis and cogitation.”

“Use your eyes, ears, and nose, to gather information. Then drop your awareness into your gut, which is the seat of your instinctual self. Your senses are meant to register information in a way that can be felt in the body, which is your most reliable compass.”

White“The mind is useful – don’t get me wrong – but it’s much overrated, and all those random or obsessive thoughts can get in the way of pure awareness. Pure awareness means without preconceived notions, anxiety, or anticipation. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and easily, clear your mind, and you’ll know what to do to find your way through.”

“Additional associations: gentleness, cunning, grace and purity.”

Today’s message comes from Power Animal Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D.

Spirit Message of the Day – Find the Infinite Possibilities

Today’s inspiration comes from Oracle of the Dreamtime – Aboriginal Dreamings offer guidance for today by Donni Hakanson.

two dolphinsDOLPHIN
“Dolphins are easily the most beloved of our planet’s aquatic creatures, representing the child within, playful and joyous. the image of the dolphins leaping over foamy waves conveys a sense of wildness and freedom.”  Its message for humanity is one of developing faith, devotion, and unconditional love for self and others.

“Dolphin calls you to come and play, to leap into the ocean of infinite possibility. But there is also a special reminder, one that is in contrast to this carefree image. Dolphin can represent our shadow side, the side that can cause hurt and pain, to ourselves and to others.”

Dolphin-Songs_smYour Message
You are being asked to be more thoughtful of consequences. This can include not poking fun at others with criticism, and not being too hard on people – including yourself.  It is too easy to automatically react to people and situations with your shadow self which will manifest by being too critical and unforgiving of perceived personal faults – especially if you feel you’ve been wronged or slighted in some way.

dolphin3Dolphin asks you to find the harmony in the situation and approach it with great acceptance, compassion, and love.  There is a strong need for you to find and harvest the energies of this unconditional and all encompassing love to be put into practice today in some aspect of your current question, situation, or issue at hand. Be thoughtful with your self talk and consider your words carefully before speaking to others. Find the joy in the situation and embrace the opportunity to better harmonize. Infinite possibilities are limitless and surround you.

Beholder of Dreams
“And there came from the red heart
a wise man with Dreamings to tell
and knowledge to share.
Of Dreaming comes creation,
and of creation the manifestation
of creative Dreaming.
Make your Dreamings sweet
and let mother’s arms embody you,
acknowledge her wisdom,
learn from all creatures upon her
for each has something to tell.
Hear what you listen to
and listen to yourself
then the knowledge born of wisdom
will be yours to share
with the Great Ones.”
– Lisa Reid, Wreck Bay Mission, New South Wales 1995

aboriginal%20familyA Little History
The Aboriginal Dreamtime is strongly part of their culture which explains the origins and culture of the land and its people.  They have the longest continuous culture history of any group of people on Earth, dating back 65,000 years. The Dreamtime contains many parts: It is the story of things that have already happened, how the universe came into being, how humans were created, and how the Creator intended for humanity to function within the greater cosmos of life.

dreamingAccording to their ancestors, Aboriginal culture has no relgion. Instead, they have a very intricate spiritual belief system.  This is so ingrained into their culture that it is part of their existence of their every day life. Even the animals, plants, and creatures of their land are their ancestors, including their brothers and sisters, their mothers and fathers, their grandparents. These personal totems are to be looked after with great care and respect, and in turn they will look after us and help connect us to the spiritual, and can guide us during difficult moments.

indigenous tjapukai“With the Australian Aboriginal world view – every meaninful activity, event, or life process that occurs at a particular place leaves behind a vibrational residue in the earth, as plants leave an image of themselves as seeds. The shape of the land – it’s mountains, rocks, riverbeds, and waterholdes – and it’s unseen vibrations echo in the events that brought that place into creation. Everything in the natural world is a symbolic footprint of the metaphysical beings whose actions created our world. As with a seed, the potency of an earthly location is wedded to the memory of its origin.”

aboriginal-dance“The Aborigines called this the “Dreaming” of a place, and it constitutes the sacredness of the earth. Only in extraordinary states of consciousness can one be aware of or attuned to, the inner dreaming of the Earth.”
 – Faces of the First Day: Awakening in the Aboriginal Dreamtime by Robert Lawlor.
