Restriction Oracle Card

I use The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards: A 52-Card Deck and Guidebook by Colette Baron-Reid, to provide a thought for the week. The information below is not the text-book version of the cards’ meaning, but my own summary and interpretation of the cards significance.

Restriction

The Sacred Journey Markers

Cold and steely are the prison bars, that we surround ourselves and our minds with. With ever escalating thoughts of frustration, anger and resentment. But these bars are born out of our own fears and the restrictions we place on ourselves.

The negative voice inside us rises and grows ever more powerful, as we feed it further. However, it is all an illusion. An illusion we have created and its trickery can be revealed if only we would take a step back and remove ourselves from the prison we have created.

Now is not the time to take action. It is a time to take stock and reassess situations, problems and issues in our lives. It is time to reflect rather than make rash decisions, based on charged destructive emotions. A New Moon helps ease tensions slightly, as it prompts for a fresh start and sweeping away of old, out moded beliefs, that do not serve well.

If you can, find the time to be alone in order to find peace and rationale, with your thoughts and inner most feelings. And when you are through this current “battle” you will be able to move on with a much clearer vision, of where you want to be and what you want to do going forward.

All in all, bide your time, have patience and ride out the storm.

There will be a silver lined cloud waiting for you on the other side.

Risk

Risk Oracle Card

The Sacred Journey Markers

Opportunities and changes are on the horizon for many of us right now. Some of these opportunities may be risky, but is it always best to take the safe option?

Going into the unknown, whether it be calculated or a spur of the moment decision can be a little frightening, but you are fortunate to have an inner guidance system, to call upon when required.

Risk is abound with contradictions, mixed messages so listen to your higher, intuitive self and act accordingly. If it does not feel like a good move then it probably is not right, at this time, to pursue change. But remember, if it is intended for you and your life purpose, then the situation will present itself again, when you feel more equipped and ready to take on the challenge.

Having said that, sometimes it is good for the soul to take that leap of faith. The earths elements and energy and are ready to assist you right now, in this very moment, all you have to do is gather your courage and go for it. If it does not work out as hoped then you still have a valued life experience to learn and grow from.

You may feel as if you are walking alone in the dark, the direction has not been fully illuminated for you as yet. You may be on a creative path, which you love, yet you are unsure of where it will go, where it may lead, how you could take it to the next level or whether it will come to an abrupt halt.  All these questions and more can be answered, if you simply ask for assistance from yourself, your guides, the angels or any energy you have an affinity with.

The most important aspect of any unknown venture is to do what you enjoy doing – the finer details will take care of themselves.

The Queen Oracle Card

I use The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards: A 52-Card Deck and Guidebook by Colette Baron-Reid, to provide a thought for the week. The information below is not the text-book version of the cards’ meaning, but my own summary and interpretation of the cards significance.

The Queen

The Queen Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Card

The Messengers of Avalon

Long ago, a Queens status was a precarious one. She would choose her consorts wisely – with the utmost care and attention - calling upon her inner guidance and the advice of her most trusted and closest allies. Although not a completely distrusting soul, the Queen knows she must strike a balance, in order to empower her position of authority. However, the Queen is not calculated and power-hungry; she is righteousness but humane, resourceful yet giving.

To accept The Queens strength you need to understand her world, in order to take on her guise and value yourself within your own circle of friends, family and acquaintances. People will come into your life while other people will go out of your life - sometimes quick as a flash and sometimes they will slowly drift away. Nevertheless, there is no need to feel a sense of loss. Just be excited by the new personalities and human experiences that are in the now or are to represent themselves in the future.

It is a good time to get together with friends, as you can learn a great deal about yourself through others. Your true nature and values reveal themselves and if there are people who do not fit within your realm then let them go. They are on their own path and if you do not feel happy for them to travel with you then that is OK.

Be true to yourself, note that you ARE a worthy, magical spirit that deserves to be happy. Marvel at the wonders of this life, the continuous cycle, and the ever evolving natural world we live in. Remember to take time out just for yourself; to relax, recharge and unwind. By “treating” yourself, whenever you can, you will reaffirm the regal value you have or should place on yourself.

Love Oracle Card

Love

Love Oracle Card

The Sacred Journey Markers

In the aftermath of the super full moon, and all the power and strength that it provides, we are recharged with healing energy.

It is now time to let go of animosity and ascend to a higher level of your spiritual being.

Just as a flower requires nurturing with water, nutrients and most importantly light, you are being asked to extend your light out to the world.

Be passionate about your life, love your life, be good to yourself and freely radiate your softer, kinder self. Help a friend, make a kind gesture to a stranger, or simply send loving thoughts to those in need.

Whatever you give out you receive back. However, this is not your motivation as you will find, within you, a way to give unconditionally without the want, or need, for something in return.

Remember you are part of this collective consciousness. Re-acquaint your-self with this connection and emit a blanket of love out to the world.

The Fire Faery Oracle Card

The Fire Faery

The Fire Faery Oracle Card

The Guides of Faery

Burning bright within you is your spark of divinity, your creative soul that ignites your imagination.

When you are faced with set backs or disappointment in life, The Fire Faery is there to dust you down and rekindle your passion. Decisive quick action is called for, but not on a destructive level. It is about putting fire in your belly in order for you to create through your inspired emotions.

The next positive action to angst is motivation. A charged, potentially negative, situation can very quickly translate into you getting something done. Let me explain……..

One minute you were annoyed, the next your house is spotless! One cross word and you have cleared your desk of outstanding paperwork. One undesired outcome and you have been inspired to move on to bigger and better things. And suddenly, after what felt like a struggle, you find yourself motivated, energetically charged and back in the game!

This is also a time you look out for the subtle navigation signals that lead you to optimism and that wide-eyed realisation. It may be a word jumping out from a paragraph that you really feel, a deja vu that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling, a need to go to a specific place and you meet someone interesting or in need of help. All of these things happen for a reason and you are being gently guided to the next chapter of your journey.

Remember: Darkness is quickly overcome by light. So sense the warmth of the fire lighting your way, giving you the strength and courage to act on your instinct and your inspirations.

Your job is to trust that every single step is taking you closer and closer to your hopes, your dreams and your goals.

The Water Faery Oracle Card

The Water Faery

The Water Faery - Wisdom of Avalon

The Guides of Faery

Just like the tide, our feelings and emotions can ebb and flow.

One day you may be happy and joyful, the next you may be sad and melancholy.

This is a natural trait of our human existence; experiencing different levels of emotions, light and shade, and all manner of contrast in-between.

Your emotion is, in general, born from the situations and circumstances that surround you, and how you perceive or react to what is happening in your life.

Imagine you are in a rowing boat, in the middle of a lake.

The water is calm, the sun is shining, it is a beautiful day, and you decide to drop the oars and go with the flow. How does it make you feel? Are you calm and relaxed without a care in the world? Are you at peace with yourself, your life and the beauty that surrounds you?

Imagine you are in the same rowing boat, in the middle of the same lake.

This time the wind in howling, the boat is violently tipping from side to side, torrential rain is filling up the boat, you are in danger of sinking and you are wet and very cold. How does it make you feel? Are you panicking? Can you see no way out? Are you scared you may never make it back to shore? Will anyone come to your rescue?

Being in touch and understanding your emotions is of course a valuable asset. But so is the action you take, and the reaction you convey internally and externally to the world.

The Water Faery is there to wash away your sad emotions - thus uplifting and surround you in an abundant sea of happiness.

You are placed on this earth to experience the art of manifestation; for you to bring all the things you love into your life. Just allow the flow of your desires to come to you naturally. There is no need for forced action here.

Remember; waves will always roll onto the sea-shore, without assistance. It is a naturally occurring process, that just happens.

It is time for you to make that promise; to not let negative situations drown your spirit.

Quite simply: You deserve to be happy.

Your job is to allow yourself to be happy which, in turn, will allow positive experiences to flood into your life.

Death Oracle Card

Death

Death - Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Card

 The Sacred Journey Markers

Death.

A card which conjures fear.

Fear of what is around the corner, fear of tomorrow, fear of endings.

But fear is a perception; and a miss-guided one.

***

The ebb and flow of the tide churns the sea bed, the plant life below, the microscopic food life; which in turn feeds and nurtures other life forms. A beautiful colourful flower may die; but before it left our gaze, did it not provide new seeds? Did it not recede back into the earth and replenish the soil? And so the circle of life continues, without resistance.

Good and bad life experiences can fossilize and embed in our hearts. In order to free yourself from the unwanted experiences you must first accept them and want to release them from your life. To let go, to loosen your grip, to relinquish your control over your emotions, will give you the boundless power to change your life for your highest good.

Yes, change means death. But with death comes new life, new beginnings and new chapters, that are only born from change.

A fresh new script is waiting in the wings. Just make sure you are ready with your white flag, to give your new direction a big warm welcome.

The Swan Oracle Card

I use The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards: A 52-Card Deck and Guidebook by Colette Baron-Reid, to provide a thought for the week. The information below is not the text-book version of the cards’ meaning, but my own summary and interpretation of the cards significance.

The Swan

The Swan - The Wisdom of Avalon

The Animal Guides of Avalon

We all know the fable of the ugly duckling, who lived a sad unloved, lonely life. until he grew into a beautiful majestic swan. The story shows us that the perception of ourselves is not necessarily the right, or fair perception.

There is a need to accept ourselves for who we are and not to be pulled down by uncomplimentary or demeaning comments from others, which can only damage our confidence and self belief. We can of course portray a confident self, to the outside world, but essentially we are only hiding our inner insecurities.

***

The Swan indicates transformation, change and a new way of thinking, that will help you to develop and grow; personally, mentally and socially. By believing in you, you are allowing yourself to blossom and become more confident, freeing yourself from detrimental thoughts and allowing yourself to be happy, doing what you know you want to do.

We are all intuitive - we may not all choose to believe, coach or reveal our psychic talents but nevertheless we are all psychic. Use your gift of intuition, your gut feeling, during this time of change and feel warm in the knowledge that you are being assisted, nurtured and guided by your inner self and from above. It is time now to be true to yourself and to really get in touch with your feelings and intuition.

If you feel there is a dramatic change required in your life, but you are still fearful of taking the plunge, The Swan indicates that it is time to go for it and believe in yourself.

Know that you can do it and you have all the tools and talent to really excel, especially when your desire to change comes from your heart.
