Happy, happy delicious Monday! How are you gorgeous one? How was your week? Did you practice keeping cool, self care and playing? I hope so. It has been an interesting week here, forest fires seem to be everywhere and thousands of people are being evacuated so we are in a huge state of alert and depending on the winds we either have a smoke filled sky which makes everything hazy and the sun a deep orange, or we have clear blue and the sun baking down. My heart so goes out to all those who have been evacuated and have had to leave their homes behind. So I was thinking about this the other day as everyone I have encountered this last week has been itchy, bitchy, uncomfie and complaining about the heat (and it has been brutal) and the winds. However, I thought about our last winter and it was harsh as well, massive snow dumps to the point where you couldn’t drive, roofs were caving in and the clouds were so low they felt suffocating.
So it got me to thinking (as I tend to sometimes over do), the winter was harsh and dark, dark, dark and I watched people have an incredibly tough time with it – a lot of depression, hermiting, over eating and wanting to sleep for longer than needed, joy had seemed to have gotten buried under the piles and piles of snow. Yet we are feeling the counter side now, the heat, the intensity of what that can do, forest fires, devastation in some places and the need to get up early to find the cool spot, water, a flurry of activity early in the morning and then another in the cool-ish of the evening. What I came up with is the difference between dark and light. Finding the balance, embracing the sleep in the winter, the early mornings in the summer – the feeling the seasons and being aware of these things in ourselves. We can’t always be light, light, happy, and on show – if we did we would burn ourselves up. We need to step back, go into the dark and sleep, go into the dark and explore, yet don’t stay there. Does that make sense?
So with this wild weather I am not surprised that The Wild Kuan Yin Oracle wanted to come play! She takes the wild and connects it to the heart, so we can all play from our wild side with love and not the burning and destruction that can happen. It’s safe to let go fully and embrace yourself and the love that you have to pump! The crystals that bounced out to play are Bloodstone which is great for strength in new circumstances and mental clarity, Snowflake Obsidian which is a calming energy and helps with “wrong thinking”, Rhodonite, clears and activates the heart chakra. Oh yes and the lovely little flowers are from the watercress I am growing! (So proud as I have never grown watercress) and as a Brit, watercress, cream cheese and cucumber sarnies! Nom! Nom! Nom! Makes me feel that I am at an elegant tea party!
So with all that being said, let’s crack on with the reading. Honour yourself by giving yourself a moment or two (or longer) gently close your eyes down and just breathe, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, feel your feet on the floor or the earth, feel the whispers of air around you as you elongate your spine and neck. Just breathe, nothing else, just breathe and BE, breathe in – breathe out. When you feel in your body and connected to Earth and Divine, open your eyes and pick a card – or cards that call to you.
So let’s go have a look, shall we?
REMEMBER ME, THE DIVINE MOTHER WITHIN
From before you were born in this body, I have loved you and I shall continue to do so even after you cast aside your sacred body to pursue life beyond this physical world. I cherish you. I take delight in you. I believe in you. I will never leave you. I will never abandon you. I see the truth of you and I know you are worthy. No matter how strong and grown up you become, or how vulnerable and small you may feel, I love you, my own wild child divine. Trust in me, the Divine Mother within you. Life grows through me. You shall too, all the more so as you trust me unconditionally. Be comforted now my beloved one. I am with you always.
Sometimes we can feel alone, not quite sure where or to whom we may truly belong. Frightened and insecure, we imagine dark happenings or feel consumed with anxiety and doubt. Or perhaps we struggle to feel our feelings, and instead have symptoms of the feelings we cannot quite find another way to express. We cannot sleep, we cannot unwind and relax, we cannot quite feel safe or secure. So we worry about what others think of us or what they may say about us behind our back. Or we worry without knowing quite why we are feeling so uneasy. We find it hard to trust others or we find ourselves trusting others who are not worthy of that trust, and we end up feeling abandoned, hurt, disappointed or ashamed.
These are all signs that we are in need of re-connection to the Divine Mother within. If we have had a problematic relationship with mothering figures in our lives, then our relationship to the Divine Mother may also seem problematic. Yet the Divine Mother has no need to test us, to challenge us, forsake us for another, or judge us in anyway! Her need is to mother us. What that means is that she offers us enough sanctuary and unconditional love to feel safe enough to venture into life, to grow, to take risks and to truly do our best to live a full and authentic life. Life is an adventure rather than a terror to be confronted when inside us there is a secure feeling of being safe and loved, no matter what twists and turns the life journey shall take.
It’s time to lay down the old wounds or self-criticisms, judgments about yourself or those of others. You don’t have to earn love and affection, you just need to open your heart and allow yourself to give it freely. You are capable of growth. You have within you enough energy to hold whatever it is you are desiring. Have faith. Trust in the ability you have to mother yourself and your dreams into life. This is a big YES from the Divine Mother. Divine Mother has heard your request and is assenting. She says yes and any further clarity and assistance you need will come to you at the best tie and in the best way.
HER JOY RENDERS THE IMPOSSIBLE TASK POSSIBLE
There is something you are meant to do. You’ve been growing towards it your entire life. All your life circumstances, lessons and situations have been teaching you valuable skills and wisdom’s so that you are equipped for the tasks demanded by your divine destiny. You may know clearly what those tasks are, or they may as yet be a mystery to you. You may not be a big picture person, preferring to focus simply on accomplishing the many smaller tasks before you each day. However, all those smaller tasks have prepared you for a bigger journey of passion and purpose.
For you to take this next step, whether it feels like the leap that will launch your destiny into an entirely new level of manifestation, or whether it just feels like the next step on your journey, you are being guided. You must let go of doubt, fear, hesitation, judgement and control. Now that is no small task! You must allow Joy to be your safety net, your attitude, the feeling by which you are guided and the basis for your decisions. Bliss, happiness, joy – these are high frequency, high states of being which cannot be contrived and yet, are not dependent on our life circumstances. To learn to feel joy in our hearts, without having to have a particular reason for it, is the beginning of access to great spiritual power. Come into your heart and in that journey, we discover a kind of freedom of spirit, a place within where joy can happen; spontaneous and unbridled.
You are being called to that place. It is simple but profoundly high in frequency. The Divine can work very easily with a human being in that state because nothing is resisted. There is no coaxing or cajoling, analysis or procrastination, over-thinking or fearful acting out that drains energy and slows down the manifestation process. There is just presence, and life can happen with utter immediacy. There is nothing that is impossible. Approach your decisions from a place of joy. Remain open in your heart and mind, and the Divine Mother shall orchestrate this offering according to the perfection of her joyful grace. Trust, play and reach for Joy!
TENDER TRUST, BELOVED BODY
I have so much that I want for you. I want you to experience all that life has to offer. I want you to see your dreams coming alive in the world. I want you to feel at home here upon earth, and to realise you have come here not only to serve, but to take delight, to become alive, to exercise your power of choice to manifest a destiny that is brilliant and beautiful and perfectly suited to you. So I have given you a sacred animal, a devoted body that has offered its entire life in service to your soul growth. This is a precious gift and one worthy of respect. When you love this sacred animal, and let him/her love you in return, your body and soul become as one, a divine wild love child of life.
The Divine Mother is bringing you something special – it may be an experience, a relationship, a spiritual or material gift, an opportunity, or any combination of these things. If you have been wondering if something you have dreamed of can come to life, can be made manifest in the physical world Yes! Be present to recognise and receive the gifts and opportunities that are rightfully yours. Take time to be open and connected to your physical body and the physical reality you can experience through being connected to your body. Look around you. Feel what is happening within you and around you too.
You are at a point on your journey where something in the spiritual realms wants to come to life in the physical world. There is an inspiration, idea or plan that is ready to take form, to take shape, to become more than a fantasy and become a living reality. Your body is like a holy instrument through which the sacred breath can flow and create sound. It is the vehicle through which the inspiration can become a manifest reality.
If you have struggled with body image, eating or health concerns, a resolution will come. You need to heal the relationship between you and your body so your dreams can manifest more often and with greater pleasure on your part. Why not give up trying to punish, push or force your body, or control and dominate her with your mind. Explore and find a way to relate to your body as a friend. Your body loves you.
Mmmmm, that was a delicious reading. Trusting the Divine Mother without and within, tapping into Joy and embodying it! Hell to the yes! So gorgeous one, wishing you a beautiful week, remember it is New Moon coming up and a gorgeous time to plant your seeds of intention or just give the seeds you planted before a big dose of attention and watering. Take some moments this week to just slow down, look up and around, breathe and smile. You’ve got this and life is absolutely delicious! See you next Monday!
