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 – Ideas To Celebrate Yule 2013

CELEBRATING THE PAGAN SABBAT: YULE
In many Pagan and Wiccan celebrations, often the cornerstone of a succe205537_450257608364328_1060900443_nssful Sabbat is the food. Yule is a time of rich, delicious cooking for many of us, so start planning your menu ahead of time. Open up your hearth and home for your guests, and once you’re seated at your meal, take a moment to be thankful for all the bounty and blessings you have before you this Yule season!

Food Blessings, Pagan and Wiccan Style
Many religions celebrate the consumption of food with some sort of prayer of thanksgiving. Many Pagans and Wiccans believe that not only should we thank the gods for our food, but also the earth and the food itself. After all, if you’re eating plants or meat, something had to die so that you could have a meal. It seems rude not to thank your food for its sacrifice. Any of the following may be said over a meal, a Cakes and Ale ceremony, or any other event where food is served. Feel free to include the names of the deities of your tradition, of you prefer.

• This Simple Meal Blessing offers thanks to the God and Goddess for a meal.

• A Prayer to the Earth shows gratitude for the planet’s bounty.

• If you’re eating a meal that once walked around, offer a prayer Celebrating Meat.

Invite the Gods to dine with you.

Make an Offering of a bit of your food.


Basic Wassail Recipe

Hot WassailWassail was originally a word that meant to greet or salute someone — groups would go out Wassailing on cold evenings, and when they approached a door would be offered a mug of warm cider or ale. Over the years, the tradition evolved to include mixing eggs with alcohol and asperging the crops to ensure fertility. While this recipe doesn’t include eggs, it sure is good, and it makes your house smell beautiful for Yule!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours, 15 minutes

Ingredients:
• 1 Gallon apple cider
• 2 C. cranberry juice
• 1/2 C honey
• 1/2 C sugar
• 2 oranges
• Whole cloves
• 1 apple, peeled and diced
• Allspice
• Ginger
• Nutmeg
• 3 cinnamon sticks (or 3 Tbs. ground cinnamon)
• 1/2 C – 1 C brandy (optional)

Preparation: Set your crockpot to its lower setting, and pour apple cider, cranberry juice, honey and sugar in, mixing carefully. As it heats up, stir so that the honey and sugar dissolve. Stud the oranges with the cloves, and place in the pot (they’ll float). Add the diced apple. Add allspice, ginger and nutmeg to taste — usually a couple of tablespoons of each is plenty. Finally, snap the cinnamon sticks in half and add those as well.

Cover your pot and allow to simmer 2 – 4 hours on low heat. About half an hour prior to serving, add the brandy if you choose to use it. Buttered RumButtered rum was a popular recipe in colonial America, and it’s easy to see why — it’s GOOD. You can brew this up in your crockpot, ladle out a nice big mug and sit by the fire on a chilly winter evening. It’s the perfect warm drink for Yule. If you leave out the rum, your kids can enjoy it too (here’s a tip — when your little one wants to have a Harry Potter party, make a rum-free pot of this recipe and call it butter beer).

Ingredients:
• 2 Quarts apple juice
• 2 C firmly packed brown sugar
• 1 stick butter (use the real stuff, not margarine)
• 3 Tbs. cinnamon
• 1 tsp. ground cloves
• 1 tsp. nutmeg
• 2 C. your favorite rum
• Refrigerated whipped dessert topping
• Cinnamon sticks and nutmeg for garnish

Preparation: Warm up the apple juice and brown sugar in a pot. Add the butter (dice up the stick before you put it in there, so it’ll melt faster). Stir until the butter is melted. Add the spices and the rum. Cover the pot, and allow to simmer on low for 2 – 4 hours. Ladle into mugs for serving. Top each with a dollop of whipped topping and a cinnamon stick. Sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg.

When the sun comes up on Yule morning, there’s nothing quite like it. If your family celebrates with a solar ritual, after you’re done, head to the kitchen for a big breakfast. This sunny skillet dish is full of good stuff — if you’re vegetarian, simply substitute something else for the sausage, or leave the meat out altogether. This is fabulous with some nice warm biscuits and gravy.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:
• 2 Tbs. butter (use the good stuff, not margarine)
• 1 small onion, diced
• 1/2 C shiitake mushrooms, chopped
• 2 C southern-style hashbrown potatoes, thawed
• 6 eggs, beaten
• 2 C sausage, browned
• 2 C cheddar cheese, grated
• Fresh rosemary and sage
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1/2 C Asiago cheese, grated
• 1 green onion, chopped
• 1 small tomato, diced

Preparation: Preheat your oven to 350. Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add the mushrooms and onions, sautéing until they are opaque. Add potatoes, and cook until browned, stirring occasionally. In a buttered or greased casserole dish, spread the potato mixture around to evenly cover the bottom. Mix the eggs, sausage, cheese, herbs, salt and pepper together in a small bowl, and then pour over potatoes. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes. About ten minutes into the bake time, sprinkle the Asaigo cheese on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool for ten minutes before serving. To serve, dish onto plates and garnish with tomatoes and onions.

405368_10150500037554734_1317162623_nMESSAGE FROM SPIRITBLOGGER
A warm welcome to December and wish to you for a bright and merry Winter Solstice this year. In my search to find spiritual significance for this Winter Solstice 2013, I kept thinking about the concepts of building and recreating life; which, always seems to give us the opportunity to reinvent ourselves and constantly reshape and refine our lives to best align with our highest soul self. This involves a bit of re-imagining who we are at times and then manifesting who we are meant to be, as we embrace our whole selves. I found an online article called “Winter Solstice – Beauty in the Darkness” by Sara Dawn I wanted to share with you. Perhaps it might resonate with where you’ve either been, or currently find yourself in this day, or in this very moment. Thank you for all your messages this past year, good wishes, and support on both the blog and Facebook page. Bright Wishes To You All for a Meaningful Winter Solstice.
– Angela

“Yes, there is beauty here in the shadows of ourselves. There is great beauty in the darkness. The Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year. Since neolithic times it has been celebrated and honored as a sacred time of renewal and rebirth. As the earth continues on her magical orbit the days now grow longer and nights shorter. The sun is dawning after the increasing darkness of winter.  The Winter Solstice is nature’s physical equivalent of a spiritual awakening and enlightenment.

whitecandleMy wish for you this Winter Solstice is that you awaken to the sheer brilliance of your being, the very essence of Life that you are, your inner most nature. And that with this new-found strength you delve deep into the darkness, deep into your shadows and fears, and shine on them the light of awareness with love and compassion. Nothing is more powerful or bigger than this light and love. Like the sun, the light of awareness and love overcomes any darkness. When we dare to face our deepest, darkest fears and overcome them we can truly experience the ecstasy of life. We become confident and stronger. We discover ourselves and we know who we are. We begin to trust life and know that it is a force that is both for us and within us. The Winter Solstice marks this triumph of our quest for a greater good. It is a journey we all have the opportunity to take, many times in our lives.

If you are stuck in any area of your life or if you are in pain, the invitation and my wish for you here is to take that stuck energy, take that pain and compost it into something beautiful! Like the earth breaks down decaying, useless matter and turns it into fuel for life and growth, take your shadows and darkness and use them to create life and beauty. The Winter Solstice is a great time to realize this.”
– Sara Dawn

scroll2“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Spirit Message of the Moment – Celebrate Mabon 2013

THE PAGAN HOLIDAY MABON – THE AUTUMN EQUINOX – A Spiritual Celebration
“Mabon is the time of harvesting the full yield of nature. What was planted at the spring equinox is nMabon Mickie Muellerow ripe and mature. The card depicts the ritual setting for the Mabon festival, which is marked by the autumn equinox. Statues of the Goddess and God appear behind an altar, with the sun setting, casting shadows upon the ground. here they stand as the Lady of the Harvest and the Lord of the Sheaf.

The God is decorated with the intertwined red, black, and white woven cords of the mystery tradition, from which hang the sacred silver and golden boughs. Red represents the living blood of our ancestors, which flows in our veins. Black represents the deep shadows that contain the enlightenment awaiting the true seeker. White symbolizes what remains behind, a metaphor of the bone, representing the wisdom and knowledge left behind by our ancestors. 

On the God statue appear oak leaves and acorns, representing his divine woodland nature. The Goddess statue holds a lighted candle, which symbolizes her divine presence. At her feet is an empty cauldron with nine white shells set in front. The cauldron represents the gateway to the Underworld through which the Harvest lord must pass. For from the Goddess does all life issue forth, and to her must all life return. The nine white shells symbolize her triformis nature as the three Fates, plus her three aspects as maiden, mothers, and crone, plus her rulership over the three realms of the Overworld, Middleworld, and Underworld.

Between the statues, the altar is set with a reed basket filled with the sacred harvest cakes. The basket is now the tomb of the God (as it had once been his cradle at Yule) and bears the symbol of the sun. Apples, pumpkins, and acorns adorn the altar. The basket is flanksweeped by two white candles representing pillars between which the portal to the Underworld or Otherworld is entered. At the time of Mabon the God dies and journeys to the Underworld, where he waits in the realm of Shadow for his rebirth at Yule.

Behind the altar stands an upright sickle, which represents the harvester. A raven, the messenger of the Otherworld, swoops downward to land upon the sickle. This marks the death of the Harvest Lord, who must willingly fall so that his seed will ensure the renewal of life.”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“When this card appears the work is done, and the manifestation and realization of your plans is at hand. It is time to celebrate. Three words summarize this season: harvest, completion, and fulfill. The Mabon/Autumn Equinox card reveals the harvest we have reaped from what was sown in an earlier season. In a spiritual sense this is the measure of the soul’s journey through life. It is here that we look at the state of our lives, our condition, our relationships. The harvest is the time to look at what has been sacrificed and what has been gained.”  

TREE IN FALL
“It is time to release what no longer works. The tree in fall symbolizes decline, shefallTreedding, and release, and tells us to shed that which no longer serves the greater good. A tree in fall does not lament waning and loss. It stands as a tree in fall, embracing what is natural to the condition surrounding it while it strips away what cannot be sustained in the coming winter season.  The tree in fall depicts the liberation of fall with a tree casting off its foliage.”

THE SHADOW’S EDGE
“The Tree in Fall takes up the idea of shedding that which no longer serves the successful continuation of our lives. The message of this card is that we must rid ourselves of things that drain our energy and resources or detract from our necessary goals. Holding on to things that no longer serve the common good is to risk future health, prosperity, and vitality.”

All above excerpts are from The Seeker’s Guide to The Hidden Path by Raven Grimassi and Stephanie Taylor with art by Mickie Mueller which I highly recommend purchasing for your tarot/oracle card collection if you haven’t already. 

THE AUTUMN EQUINOX
It is the time of the autumn equinox, and the harvest is winding down. The fields are nearly empty, because the crops have been plucked anMabon Acornd stored for the coming winter. Mabon is the mid-harvest festival, and it is when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest. On or around September 21, for many Pagan and Wiccan traditions it is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. With it being a few weeks away, now is a good time to start decorating your home for the autumn equinox, and planning your fall craft projects! ” 

“Depending on your individual spiritual path, there are many different ways you can celebrate Mabon, but typically the focus is on either the second harvest aspect, or the balance between light and dark. This, after all, is the time when there is an equal amount of day and night. While we celebrate the gifts of the earth, we also accept that the soil is dying. We have food to eat, but the crops are brown and going dormant. Warmth is behind us, cold lies ahead.”

MESSAGE FROM SPIRITBLOGGER405368_10150500037554734_1317162623_n
Welcome to Fall! This is my absolute favorite time of year; there is change in the sweet smelling air, the nights get a little cooler, and the trees and plants begin to change their color from bright green to beautiful degrees of orange and red. It’s a great time of year to quietly turn inward and focus on your spiritual development and then turn outward, be social, and share feasting and celebration of the change of season with family and friends.

Take a moment for reflection to ponder the life you currently find yourself in. What’s new or different compared with where you were at the spring equinox? Take time to count your blessings, feel the abundance that surrounds your life, take stock, and celebrate all of your hard work and what’s been accomplished to date before moving forward to set goals for the pagan new year (which begins at Samhain on October 31st). Try making a warm apple or mulled cider, or making a special harvest bread to eat with homemade herb butter, or hosting an elegant autumn harvest dinner and serve foods you find most comforting to welcome in the new season.

Wishing You Brightest Autumn Wishes and Warm Blessings, 
Angela

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 – Justice Will Prevail

THE LADY ALFREDA
“Know you this: that whatsoever you send out, you attract back to the power of three. Intent has energy, as do thoughts, feelings and emotions, and once released, this vibrational thought-field radiates out and attracts back to you that which was sent out. This is the Law of the Threefold Return, an ancient Law that the wise ones have known of for many a year, though many of the humans have refused to listen to its wisdom.”

“So, if you cry out an injustice, and if you are in pain, you must clear the reasons these manifestations of the Law were brought to you, were drawn to you, by you. As you think, so you will live. As you do, others will do unto you. this is the magickal law.”

“Do not be afraid of this truth: see it as a source of freedom. There is no blame in this karmic truth, for all that you send out will return. There is no other place for it to go. Your own underworld initiation is ending soon, and the dark will soon come to be but a place of rest, release, wisdom and deep, ancient knowledge. The Law is the Law. And the Lady’s Law is love unto all. Follow this, and the Threefold Return will work its magicks.”

“Do you not know the truth? Your own underworld is not hell, but your dark time is the cauldron of your experience, your growth, your understanding, your knowledge. Now you have the knowledge of the Law will you work with it, knowing it to be the truth?”

ABOUT THE LADY ALFREDA
“The Lady Alfreda is a Dragonfae-being of wise counsel. She is sister to Melusine, and as such, she understands emotions and water as energies. But her being is about the Law, understanding the Law, and reminding us all that the process of natural Law has its place in all of our lives, throughout all of our lifetimes. She bring justice, and is a karmic ramifications of actions and thoughts, emotions and words, will be felt by all. Do not fear. Know that this draws one phase to a final close, at last.”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“It is time to get real and own what you have previously blamed on others. This does not mean blaming yourself. Instead, work on shifting your own karmic residue (Dragonfae are wonderful at this!) and understanding the connections between what you have sent out and what you have created. Issues of law, justice and karma. Fearful thoughts around what you see to be the darkness or black magick, not understanding just how the natural Law works, thus this card asks you to look to your own intent. Clear your space; work with your own dark times to understand the lessons. Make friends with your shadow and thank it for the lessons.”

WORKING WITH THE LADY AFREDA
“Make decisions, act in integrity, and keep your word. Be honest and upfront, and expect that from others. You do not need to play games, or be deceived anymore if someone has not acted with integrity. Know that you do not need to act, as the natural laws of this Lady of the Dragonfae will take over, and justice will be realised in due course. Your role is to act with honor, nobility and truth, and keep to that course. Take action regarding matters that must be put to rights. Justice will prevail.”

Spirit Message of the Day – Take The Path Less Travelled

SACRED POOL
“The world is a reflection of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Embody the love you wish to see in the world.”

“When you look into the mirror, do you like what you see? The Sacred Pool card asks that you focus on self-love and self-esteem. We are all works in progress, so a detached self-examination made with rigorous honesty is called for now. Reflect by the Sacred Pool and be at peace with yourself. Can you see how far you’ve come and how magical your life is? Do you notice the spark of the Divine shining through your eyes? When you’re conscious that you’re the embodiment of Spirit, it becomes easier to respect yourself and act in good conscience…then you’ll reap the greatest rewards.”

“Your unique service to the world is not only needed but celebrated. See the love within you, and know that if you cast it upon the waters, it will return to you tenfold. Be at peace, for you are beautiful and loved. Act with surety and confidence, and success shall be yours – whatever your inquiry.”

“It can be difficult to overcome denial when there is a reward for staying where you are. If you can’t accept and love yourself, you remain trapped, wearing a false mask of victimhood. The benefit of embracing denial and the victim’s mask is that you never have to take a real risk. Dimming your light serves no one. Turning away from the truth that is reflected in the stillness of the Sacred Pool keeps you in denial, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Such vain efforts lead to a tedious, boring existence. Take the risk and shine your beautiful light into the world. Look in the mirror and see the truth. Surrender the need to self-sabotage.”

“Remember that you have a responsibility not just to yourself but to the Divine spark within you. Courage is not the absence of fear. Accept the discomfort of seeing with clear eyes and you’ll soon find that wondrous adventures are waiting for you. Step into your magical life. Take the leap of faith.”

Spirit Message of the Day – Throw Wide Open Your Heart

THE LADY GRIAN
“I am of the Earth and of the Sol-star’s light. I am the opening of the flower, the love that lives in the flower of your heart. I love you, and wish for you to draw this love energy into your being.”

“I am a power source that you cannot neglect. Because even if you feel you are a being of winter, and that your heart has grown cold and hard in order to ease the pain, I tell you that you are now ready to reveal your own life source and warmth to another being. The love you have to share will be appreciated and returned. More so, this warm and loving heart energy will be its own reward, as you awaken again to your feeling nature. Please open your heart in this moment.”

“Allow yourself to love. See the beauty in warmth, and smile as often as you can. Bring forth your joy, and see the opening of others’ hearts. Wear yellow, red and gold: all the colors of my friend, the Sun, and you will feel a great flow of energy awakening throughout your body and energetic being. Please see that the seeds you planted need warm earth in which to grow. Yes, they can survive when it is cold, but they cannot thrive. So be warm, extend your energy, and know that your truly radiant self will create great opportunity and abundance around you. Simply extend some heart energy, and I will support you and love you until you are the radiance of the Sun incarnated in your own form. Love. Be Loved. Love.”

ABOUT THE LADY GRIAN
“Grian is the sister of the Moon Goddess of the Dragonfae, Aine, and is a solar Goddess/Dragonfae Queen. She is of the golden light and she brings warmth and courage, joy and growth wherever her feet fall. She is the force that drives the plant to flower, the fruit to be born from the vine, the seed to spring forth into life. Her hands glow with this life-force, and her Dragonfae companions breathe flames around her as she sleeps to ensure she is warm. She brings warmth and fire to those in wintery climates and carries with her the coming of spring. She is very spring/summer in her feel, and is very much about the dawn of a new light, and sunset and ‘dying light’. She is necessary for our continued life, for moving forward in comfort, and she is a being who can also bring forth abundance and luxuries, those that spring naturally from the planet. She is very beautiful, warm, and comforting. For anyone experiencing cold, fatigue and even joint pains, she breathes ease and joy into us.”

“Grian’s Dragonfae – self in her natural form is small and delicate yet, immensely strong – like beams of light and flames from the Sun. She is sensuous too in nature, and protected. When Grian breathes out, flowers bloom. Where her feet fall, clover and herbs, green grass and moss spring forth and all that she touches and looks upon is blessed with vibrant life force. She gives and breathes into being life itself. Her radiance is kind and gentle, but immeasurably powerful. she has the power to change landscapes, climates, and our feelings…”

MESSAGE FOR YOU
“A time when dreams and wishes are quickly and easily realized. Fertility is accentuated, and your attractiveness and personal beauty are appreciated and commented on. Throw wide open your heart and experience the joy of feeling. Beautiful emotions, warm friendships, loving relationships. Displays of love – extravagant love. New projects and ideas. Self-love grows, and attracts others to you when Grian is with you.”

HOW TO WORK WITH THE LADY GRIAN
“Grow something! Herbology. Earth magic, solar connections, solar connections, solar energy, warm-blooded creatures, smiles and reaching out physically to people. Solstices, particularly summer solstice, the time of Beltane, and any sunny warm day. Warm wind, and growth spurts in your life, when energy flows with ease and momentous change happens easefully. Wear reds, golds and yellows to create sunshine energy in your life, even on the greyest of days.”

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.”
