Happy Marvelous, Magnetic, Mystical, Magickal, Manifesting Monday delicious lovely! Phew, we are in mid-August and playing with the energy of Discovery. Where does that energy come from? Your Heart. Trust me, look at your world through your heart to really Discover what is true for you and what you really desire and are willing to pay attention to.
As quite a few of you know I got back from the UK 2 weeks ago where I spent 3 weeks with my best friend, big sister, shared stories, laughter, hugs, tears etc and hung out with her in the Hospice and watched her die, until her very last breath. Have to say the toughest thing I have had to do in my life as she was “my person”, the person I could talk to about anything, the person who would kick my arse when I wallowed in doubt, the person who loved me unconditionally, the person who had been there for me since the day I was born. All of which I am so frigging thankful for! Unfortunately the UK, unlike Canada takes a while to deal with this type of thing – so she is being cremated on Wednesday and then some of her ashes under a tree in the UK and some under a gorgeous Canadian Maple here.
So I get home and “whomph” I felt like I was in an alternative Universe. Holy Shit, I hadn’t expected this, but it was most certainly happening. I felt like I was “out of time” – not to do anything, but that I didn’t belong in this time and I was looking at things from somewhere else. And the thing that scared me the most was I didn’t give a fuck. I didn’t give a toss about anyone else, nature, me, the environment, the person down the street, nadda. Zip, zero, zilch. Selfish right? No. Cocoon to SHIFT. Because as the grief grabbed me by the throat and threw me to the ground all sorts of gifts filtered through the fog. The gift of being aware how “sanitised” as a culture we are. You lost someone, you feel like shit? Sorry you feel that way. Then don’t share that conversation again. The gift of evaluating my relationships. Which ones are important and two way streets and which are more a one way street, or conditional? (Hence have ended 3 relationships in the last 2 weeks – and yes, totally okay with it). The gift of attracting people who talk to me about their feelings (even more so than before) and realising that loneliness, social isolation and disconnect are rampant in our culture – through all ages. The gift of friends who check in daily, make me cool cards, cool healing packages, remind me to come back to my body and a myriad of other things. The gift Death gives which is the gift of Life and Clarity – what is important and what is really irrelevant? So many glorious gifts coming out in the middle of the night, by the ocean, in a conversation and a most interesting process. Which in turn totally ties into the energy of this month of Discovery. I am discovering all sorts of aspects, places and pieces of myself and how I move in the world. Now to implement and integrate them so it ties in with my Mission and Vision of empowering, supporting and guiding – stay tuned for that!
Okay, I have a question for you. If I told you “You have negative energy attached to you, but if you pay me $500 USD I will pray for you for 3 days and that will release it.” What would you say? Would you happily send me $500 USD? I am hoping you would say WTF! I ask this question as a lovely reader shared that with me this week and wowzer, my ire ramped up, the“fraud” button went off like a big red light and I was pissed! Not personally pissed, but pissed for this lovely human who someone was preying on and trying to fleece. They weren’t a lightworker, they weren’t trying to help, they were trying to keep the fear of a “negative energy” in the forefront of this person’s mind to extort and manipulate. Holy Hannah, so not okay on any level. These are the type of people who give Healers, Light workers, Counselors, Guides and Mentors a bad name! I’m so glad I don’t know the lovely individual that is perpetuating this type of fear and extortion as I would have to go give them a karmic slap upside the head!
Phew, okay, lots of chuntering, let’s get on with the reading.
When I went to the cards and asked who would like to guide this week, there were two decks that wiggled but The Oracle of the Dragonfae, were adamant that they come out. Now if this deck is new to you, please let me introduce these amazing guides. These guides are the magical and mystical that weave through the threads of every day, they are the Dragonfae, Gods and Goddesses who dwelt in dimensional lands …Eden, Avalon, Ys, Atlantis and Mu, they are Morgan, Guenevere, Merlin and others – fully alive and filled with magick! They are the deliciously magical beings that have always been there, we just forgot, and when we connect with them, we reconnect with the lost parts of ourselves, allowing us to fully explore the gift of life on this beautiful green and blue planet, known by some as Gaia, by others as Dana, and by many other names.
The crystals that were front and centre are:- Carnelian – a stabilising it restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success. Angel Wings – which aids you to connect with your higher self and receive/obtain guidance from the Divine. Blue Apatite – excellent communication and self-expression stone, known to increase intellect, imagination and intuitive awareness.
Okay, so are you ready? I invite you to gently close your eyes and start to breathe long and deep – in through your nose and out through your mouth. Just allow any bullshit, drama, stress, muscle tightness to drip onto the floor like gorgeous drops of rain to be absorbed back into the earth and used to nurture growth. As you breathe this way invite into your minds eye the energy of Discovery. What are you willing to discover about yourself? Just let this float there with love. Then when you feel ready pick the card or cards that resonate for you.
Did you remember to pick?
Shall we go have a look?
People expect all those who are your guides and teachers to come in forms that are soft and sweet. I am neither, and I am stern and serious, because you are in danger of forgetting that which has been taught to you due to distraction. I ask of you now whether you have the commitment to carry through with the tasks you have decided you wish to complete. Because the words “Yes” and “I will” are simple. But to teach is to impart priceless wisdom and for others to ignore the lessons, simply means this entire planet is being held back.
Forgive me, for I become impatient at the pains you have put yourself through and I see that again there is the possibility of going over old ground. You must understand – you have already learned so much. What we wish for you to do now is to have the courage to live from the wisdom you have gained, rather than the fear which ensures you overlook all that which you have learned. I have been with you before, and you and I have already learned a great deal together. And let me say this: if you choose to behave as though nothing of the wisdom of Her has been given to you, and you behave as though you are deaf and blind, and have no senses, you will again feel pain that is simply not necessary!
So now, choose to follow guidance and learn the lesson you have already worked with…and when you have learned it for the last time, teach it to yourself. By demonstrating the qualities you wish to see in the world, by applying action and discipline to your dreams, I will also be relieved, because I will no longer have to bring the lesson to your attention again and again, time after time.
And my patience will no longer be tested! Together we can teach the new ones – they need you to live from your wisdom more than you think. Know too, that no matter how much you feel you have already learned and how wise you may believe you already are, that you still have a great deal more to learn. In this new school you will be entering, you will be an apprentice once again, surrounded by others who are just as eager, wide-eyed and sure of themselves, too, at times!
Don’t be distracted – see behind the act!
All my artifice hides only the truth, which at the moment you do now wish to see. I am always telling you the truth: it is simply that you do not wish to hear. I have always shown you who I truly am: you simply choose not to see. The clues have been strewn about you …but you have decided not to notice their presence.
I can draw people into actions that reveal their shadows; and for that they condemn me. But I have been their teacher, for they then know the whole of themselves, and thus have compassion for others. Some have wanted me to be an angel, when I have never been of the heavens, and never claimed to be. I am illusions: but most of all, I am your illusion.
Look beyond, take off my mask, and decide to acknowledge the truth about the circumstances which you find yourself within. And know that although you may say I have done you wrong, I have taught you to follow your guidance. Drystan is the Dragonfae bad boy, the cheat, the hustler and the fool who charms his way into your world, and then lets you down in spectacular fashion. He’s a rogue. And the truth is: you always knew there was something dodgy about his situation, or this promise even though the glamour here is nearly irresistible.
If you are drawn in by someones charm and charisma, you may find yourself wishing and hoping they were indeed your hero (only in disguise!) Use your judgement and place your own needs and desires first. Believe it when someone says they are not to be trusted, even when that is sid not with words but with actions, or when there are too many contradictions. Enjoy the show, but do not live the act. Begin to explore your truths, your story, and begin to look beneath the surface.
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 you are a beautiful 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. In order to love well, we must actively love each day. 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.
Ahhhh, I love it. Use your wisdom and don’t shy away from it. Lift up the petticoats and look beneath and Love, real, strong, true Love. Gotta love it! So delicious lovely, your guidance for the week ahead. Sit with it, re-read it, let it perk through you. Wishing you a wonderful August week of sun, laughter, quiet time and peace. See you next week. Huge hugs and squeezes!
