Spirit Message of the Moment – An Unexpected Pause Offers a Gift

THE WOLVERINE – Two of Air

“Wolverine warns us to take what we need and to prepare well for the future. She invites us to expwolverine_1lore the wilderness, to spend time alone and to journey deep within the sacred self. In doing so we may find the space to address our fears and heal ourselves. Wolverine supports the simple truth that if you do not know yourself then no one else will ever truly know you, and endorses taking emotional risks that will allow others to get to know your true heart. She assures us that it’s never too late to welcome love back into your life.” 

TWO OF AIR

“Two is the number of duality, increase and marriage (concept). It unites the opposites that are equal; the feminine and the masculine, the dark and the light, night 372bfa9cf0127cfdaf1eca2ad00f9a69and day, and the negative and the positive. The Twos remind us that sacred difference is what usually brings balance to a situation. some say the Twos are closely linked to the energies of the High Priestess, mainly because they speak of duality and that awkward moment spent worrying before a choice is made, trying to do more than one thing at a time, listening to your inner voice or trusting your intuition. They offer grounding, choice and direction when confusion would normally rule the mind.”

MESSAGE FROM SPIRITBLOGGER
The one thing we can always expect is change – which may include unexpected stops or pauses along our life path. You may find yourself at a crossroads where you may feel it’s time to make an important or critical decision. Take all the time needed to decipher how you truly feel about the situation. Part of the journey forward means stopping frequently along the way to evaluate, reassess, and refocus our path to ensure it still aligns with our changing vision, needs, wants, highest self, and life purpose.Which part of yourself do you need to tap into before you can move forward with passion and joy? What is needed to show and express your true heart in order to be your authentic self in all situations? Will love, gratitude, peace, grace, self-awareness, being emotionally open, or forgiveness towards yourself, others, or the world unblock you, lighten your load, and give you the freedom you seek?

Spirit Message of the Moment – Time to Celebrate Litha 2013

Pagan Holiday Litha History – Celebrating the Summer Solstice 2013

An Ancient Solar Celebration
“Nearly every agricultural society has marked the high point of summer in some way, shape or form. On this date – usually around June 21 or 22 (or December 21/22 in the southern hemisphstonehenge1ere) – the sun reaches its zenith in the sky. It is the longest day of the year, and the point at which the sun seems to just hang there without moving – in fact, the word “solstice” is from the Latin word solstitium, which literally translates to “sun stands still.” The travels of the sun were marked and recorded. Stone circles such as Stonehenge were oriented to highlight the rising of the sun on the day of the summer solstice.

Traveling the Heavens
Although few primary sources are available detailing the practices of the ancient Celts, some information can be found in the chronicles kept by early Christian monks. Some of these writings, combined with surviving folklore, indicate that Midsummer was celebrated with hilltop bonfires and that it was a time to honor the space between earth and the heavens.

Fire and Water
In addition to the polarity between land and sky, Litha is a time to find a balance between fire and water. According to Ceisiwr Serith, in his book The Pagan Family, European traditions celebrated this time of year by setting large wheels on fire and then rolling them down a hill into a body of water. He 935935_513514102030876_2146289176_nsuggests that this may be because this is when the sun is at its strongest yet also the day at which it begins to weaken. Another possibility is that the water mitigates the heat of the sun, and subordinating the sun wheel to water may prevent drought.

Saxon Traditions
When they arrived in the British Isles, the Saxon invaders brought with them the tradition of calling the month of June Aerra Litha. They marked Midsummer with huge bonfires that celebrated the power of the sun over darkness. For people in Scandinavian countries and in the farther reaches of the Northern hemisphere, Midsummer was very important. The nearly endless hours of light in June are a happy contrast to the constant darkness found six months later in the middle of winter.

Roman Festivals
The Romans, who had a festival for anything and everything, celebrated this time as sacred to Juno, the wife of Jupiter and goddess of women and childbirth. She is also called Juno Luna and blesses women with the privilege of menstruation. The month of June was named for her, and because Juno was the patroness of marriage, her month remains an ever-popular time for weddings. This time of year was also sacred to Vesta, goddess of the hearth. The matrons of Rome entered her temple on Midsummer and made offerings of salted meal for eight days, in hopes that she would confer her blessings upon their homes.

Midsummer for Modern Pagans
Litha has often been a source of contention among modern Pagan and Wiccan groups, because there’s always been a question about whether or not Midsummer was truly celebrated by the ancients. While there’s scholarly evidence to indicate that it was indeed observed, there were suggestions made by Gerald Gardner, the founder of modern Wicca, that the solar festivals (the solstices and equinoxes) were actually added later and imported from the Middle East. 0029-Arch-Druid-in-his-full-Judicial-Costume-q75-356x500Regardless of the origins, many modern Wiccans and Pagans do choose to celebrate Litha every year in June.

In some traditions, Litha is a time at which there is a battle between light and dark. The Oak King is seen as the ruler of the year between winter solstice and summer solstice, and the Holly King from summer to winter. At each solstice they battle for power, and while the Oak King may be in charge of things at the beginning of June, by the end of Midsummer he is defeated by the Holly King. This is a time of year of brightness and warmth. Crops are growing in their fields with the heat of the sun, but may require water to keep them alive. The power of the sun at Midsummer is at its most potent, and the earth is fertile with the bounty of growing life.

For contemporary Wiccans and Pagans, this is a day of inner power and brightness. Find yourself a quiet spot and meditate on the darkness and the light both in the world and in your personal life. Celebrate the turning of the Wheel of the Year with fire and water, night and day, a155207_1553836443019_1476986_nnd other symbols of the triumph of light over darkness.

Litha is a great time to celebrate outdoors if you have children. Take them swimming or just turn on the sprinkler to run through, and then have a bonfire or barbeque at the end of the day. Let them stay up late to say goodnight to the sun, and celebrate nightfall with sparklers, storytelling, and music. This is also an ideal Sabbat to do some love magic or celebrate a handfasting, since June is the month of marriages and family.”

Spirit Message of the Moment – Let Your Radiance Shine – Celebrate Summer

CELEBRATE THE SUMMER SOLSTICE 2013
RADIANCE
“The word solstice originates from the Latin word solstitium, which means ‘stationary or stopped sun’. This is because twice during the solar year, the sun appears to rise and set in the sam481039_316692948446262_1762232647_ne place for several days. It seems to be taking a much-needed rest before making the next circuit across the sky from one solstice to the next – its ceaseless, predictable certainty having existed since before the time of our ancestors. There are stories in many cultures that personify the sun as deity, either male or female, often riding the sun across the sky in a boat or chariot.”

“With the summer solstice comes the culmination of the sun’s travels that have led to the longest days of the year. The light is now at its fullest and has provided its own brand of nourishment to the land and all of its inhabitants. Celebrations and ceremonies abound. Passion and playfulness are themes. We feel an innate desire to be outdoors in the natural world and reap the benefits of the longest days of the year. We instinctively seek the light, and during this cycle, there is an abundance of it.”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“Let the radiance of the sun inspire your inner radiance to shine forth. Release your concerns about what may happen in the future, and focus on appreciating everything you have that is good and right. Allow Father Sun to take away your worries and cares. Do something physically active to stimulate your in581463_507895599270420_1543139927_nner light. Dance. Sing. But most important, get outdoors. Do not let any negative thoughts or habits stop you.”

“When you are in love with Life, you naturally radiate that love. During this part of your cycle, your capacity to love is greatly amplified. In one of those supreme ironies of Life, the more love you give, the more returns to you. It starts by allowing the radiant Being you truly are to be expressed into the world. Smile a little more. Notice the Beauty of Nature. See the humor in the paradoxes of Life. Show your love, especially to those with whom you are closest. Then smile even more, and watch how the world around you lights up!”

Spirit Message of the Moment – You Are Worthy of Love, Give What You Desire

THE LOVER DRAGONFAE
“Love each other. Passionate love seems to be the realm of fairy tales and romantic epics, but it truly is a part of your life and being too. Know that when you draw this card, you are a beauti374391_311536158954833_2008261214_nful being, worthy of bliss, romance, and adoration. There is a God and a Goddess for everyone and you are about to discover that for yourself.”

“Know that within you is everything you need to draw to you perfect love and perfect trust. Know that physical and soul passion can be ignited. Asking is the beginning. Your search for a soul mate is over, because with you now is the truth; that by believing in your true nature — the passionate and romantic being that you are – you are drawing to you the one who will adore you. Be quiet and still, and believe. Sensual delight, physical ecstasy and bliss are yours.”

ABOUT THE DRAGONFAE LOVERS
“These beings have been through many trials in order to be together. They are true soul mates, but their relationship is one which is fed each day with embraces, sweetness, and passion. They remind us that in order to love well, we must actively love each day, and that to neglect our lover is to ultimately neglect our own happiness.”

“They spea484918_10151103896062477_491993786_nk to us of the necessity of romantic gestures: that keeping love alive is as simple as watering a garden daily to keep the plants in full health. Their own love is guarded by the Dragonfae, whose blood they carry. Your own relationships will be protected and looked over by a being of the Dragonfae, who will ensure that your true love will come to you when you treasure this love enough to nurture it, and have it grow, and to share the love in your heart with the other, generously, honestly, with courage. You will find love, and it will be sacred. Protect it, and know that you have your own Dragonfae guardian who will ensure this comes to be, when you believe in love yourself, truly, from the depths of your heart.”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“Your relationships need tending, as do all things that live. It could be a time to make a roman563338_474829599231034_675844261_ntic gesture, to love another as you would wish to be loved, to understand that love cannot flourish when there is mistrust and anxiety. You may be despairing that your relationship may never match your dreams – please know that your true love lies within your own willingness to believe that you too can experience passionate love, and that you are well-worthy of its ecstasies, no matter your beliefs about your age, your health, your beauty. You are a beloved one. The Dragonfae know this. Now they ask you to know this too.”

WORK WITH YOUR DRAGONFAE GUARDIAN
“Create self-loving moments in your day. Allow yourself to feel loved. Feel how loved you are, by the Dragonfae, and by the entire consciousness of all that is, and offer to yourself gestures and small acts of kindness that will further allow and attract passionate love into your life. Know that sensuality and physical union and bliss are birthrights and that you deserve these experiences now. Allow any feelings of need to fall away and replace them with a deep knowing: that you are worthy of love.”

Excerpt from Oracle of the Dragonfae by Lucy Cavendish.

Spirit Message of the Moment – Reveal Your True Self

THE DRAGONFAE GODDESS CHUMARA
– Web of All Life

“Beyond the mask we all wear of identity, beyond the construct of who we have been conditioned to believe we are, lies your face, your self. This face is tender and new in so many ways, as you have not shown her to the world before. This face has been protected because the world has seemed and proved indeed at times to be dangerous and unkind place, where those of us who feel different are proved to be so as we brave the taunts and finger pointing. But i now tell you that your protections, your armor and your shield can be removed safely with me. Do not discard her, as you may need her yet in certain situations.”

“But know now she is your armor and her role is to protect your true being. To you, I now reveal myself. See? Many have recoiled in horror at who I truly am. I am a Dragonfae Maiden, a Spider-Woman, a being of webs and change and destruction, and re-creation. Each day I must remake my world…I feel along its sensory threads to see what needs reconstruction and what needs to be let go of. For I am, as you are, part of the new web of life – a web of life that embraces our differences and yet understands that we are one. I ask you today to look at the webs in your life that must be remade and rewoven.”

ABOUT CHUMARA
“Chumara is a Dragonfae Goddess from this world and beyond who presents as a spider, as she is a powerful weaver of energies, dimensions, and time. She is healing the rifts in dimensions and time and we can assist her by understanding who we truly are and by working on our own individual weavings with consciousness and peaceful power. She holds together the strands of all four directions and creates ripple effects along them so we can communicate with worlds beyond this one known as Gaia.”

“Chumara is the creation energy which brings together nations and tribes, peoples and families, from this world and beyond, from other dimensions and times. Thus she is our mother of time and is often present when we have past life memories and experiences, when we receive premonitions about our future, as she weaves together the strands that hold past, present, and future in place. she knows they are all linked and that a ripple in one can be felt, no matter how far apart we seem, because we are all linked by the web of life.”

“She communicates via energy and sound, and thus you may hear a high-pitched ringing in your ears when she connects with you, as this is the vibration of the galactic web. Her role is to assist us in moving beyond our notions of economic short-term thinking, and moving into galactic environmentalism…not simply for Gaia, but for all with which she is connected. She wants us to see the Universe as our home too. She wishes for us all to remove the mask that says “I am this,” and to know we are that, but we are also so much more.”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“Coming out about beliefs, revealing more of your true and vulnerable self to family; beginning to work in groups; understanding cosmic consciousness; finding a new family, understanding connections; making meaningful relationships that have far-reaching impact; learning more about people’s true selves. Revelations about cultural heritage and family and personal histories may be forthcoming when Chumara makes an appearance in your life. she also represents strides being made on a global and cosmic level on peace, communication technologies and understanding sixth sensory experiences, dream experiences, astral travel and time travel.”

WORKING WITH CHUMARA
“Gently revealing who you are in safe environments; exploring more about galactic consciousness; understanding your own personal and cultural history; bloodline vibrations and exploring your ancestry; being honest in situations where previously you may have kept silent; refusing to engage in falsehood for false peace; being who you are; becoming more sensitive to vibrational communication and higher vibrational living; creating a new family based on values and beliefs that are sacred to you; being in integrity with your beliefs; understanding your true self is beautiful, powerful and loving; activating the web in your life, working with the powers of the four directions, being open to the concept of communicating with beings from beyond our solar system.”

Spirit Message of the Day – Discover Hidden Treasure

MOVEMENT
“You may currently find yourself in a time of positive forward motion. This is the time for positive momentum as you come out of a period of restriction. You’re in a stage of new adventure and discovery. You may feel compelled to take a trip, change your hair, or move your home or business. Regardless, you can’t remain where you are anymore. You feel compelled to go forward. No matter what your inquiry, you will see your dreams take form and doors previously shut begin to open as if by magic. Movement is also a state of mind. The fog lifts, and you now know the actions you need to take. This isn’t the time for fear. Let it go and move forward.”

On the other hand: Do you feel as if you’re walking in circles, seemingly not getting anywhere? Consider the spiral that travels up and around. Two steps forward, five steps back – even backwards movement helps you progress and reach your goal. You may need to revisit some of the places where you forgot to look for treasure. Another message is this: Lessons need repeating for those who refuse, or are unable, to learn them the first time. Consider this another invitation to mastery.”

Spirit Message of the Day – Time for Rest and Relaxation

DEEP FREEZE
“Everything has its season. Now is the time to put activity on hold while you rest.”

“The cold winter beckons you to slow down and put a ‘freeze’ on things that are not yet ready to bloom. It’s time for regeneration and hibernation. Forgo ambitious activity. A pregnant pause allows ideas to gestate; projects to shift and change; and relationships to go through a dreamy state of being, not going anywhere – not needing to.”

“This is also a time to put all your arguments on ice. Nothing beneficial will come from any of them. Self-care is the most important activity now…so reflect, read a good book, or get a massage. Rest and dream.”

“Nothing you can do right now will amount to anything substantial no matter how much you try, push, manipulate, or cajole. Life wants you to take a break. You need to do this now, lest you become exhausted and be forced to rest. What you need will be there for you when you emerge in the springtime. For now, winter has its own ideas for you. Wait for signs of spring.”

Spirit Message of the Day – Be the Center of the Storm

A FLOWER SPIRIT NAMED NIGELLA
“My message is one of calm. Repeat after me, ‘I am still within, whilst all around me is moving’. As we go about our busy lives, it is sometimes easy to forget to breathe properly. Speeding up throughout the day, in an effort to get everything done quickly with our hectic schedules, our breath becomes more and more shallow. The deeper you breathe into your stomach and chest, the slower your heart will beat, enabling your whole body and nervous system to experience stillness and calm.”

A MESSAGE FOR YOU
“The flower spirit of the Nigella, also known as Love-in-a-Mist, reminds you to take time to pause and breathe deeply. Close your eyes and slowly fill your lungs with cool, blue celestial light. Imagine the soft, hazy blue of the Nigella flower flowing into the crown of your head from above, filling first your stomach and then your lungs. This is a powerful healing energy from Source the Universe the God/Goddess. As you draw in this breath of life, take a moment to reflect and be still admist the chaos you feel outside. Feel and clearly visualize each cell of your body drinking in this pure serenity from above. Imagine this blue energy resonating out from your body, flowing inside then outside of yourself, and then filling the space around you, so that you emanate and are surrounded by a cool and gentle calm.”

“Open your eyes again and re-experience the world around you with more clarity and awareness. See the beauty in everything and stand aside from the mass consciousness of speed. Perhaps you have become too wrapped up in material gain, consumed by worry or fear, or caught up on outside recognition and control. Everything true and essential is by its very nature simple and accessible to everyone in the world. Even if you do this breathing exercise for just a few minutes each day, it will bring you a sense of peace and inner calm.”

Today’s message is from Flower Spirit Cards by Melanie Eclare.
