One Card Draw for the week of August 29th, 2016

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #41 – Share Your Thoughts. Silence is deafening. Silence is one of the most destructive forces out there. Silence, when words need to be spoken, can injure us on a spiritual and emotional level. Silence can be the antithesis of healing. Not all of the time, but it can be. Sharing your thoughts and talking things through is the only way to process the anger or hurt that you have let crawl into your deepest parts. Sharing your thoughts is also how you pass down knowledge and wisdom to others. Our thoughts when transformed into spoken or written word become very powerful. They can heal or they can destroy. They can exude love and compassion or they can bring about hatred and fear. So share your thoughts. Find your voice and make sure it is loud and clear, and if you are unsure, I am sure a whisper will do. Key Phrase for the week: I will find my voice and share my thoughts.

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #26 – Love Without Condition To love without condition; you would think that is easy wouldn’t you? It’s not. It means setting aside your ideas about what love should ‘look like’ and allowing yourself to simply love. To love without condition means that you love the person as they are without you painting them into a scene that is not of their own design. It means that you must love them in the life they are currently living, and not some fantasy life down the road. No one is perfect. Love isn’t perfect. No relationship is perfect. Prince Charming isn’t perfect. Why would you demand that a person whom you profess to love be something that isn’t possible? Even the most perfect appearing couple on the outside might have some serious struggles going on in the privacy of their world. To love without condition means that you don’t set demands on them to act or behave a certain way. You don’t set demands that they must earn a certain amount of money or dress a certain way. (You can demand that they are not abusive but that is still unconditional love, love of yourself.) You don’t demand that they put you before every other aspect of their life if other things need their immediate attention. This list can continue for pages, but it isn’t necessary. To love without condition means you place no demands on the love that is being given to you freely from another person, and in turn your love should be given demand free as well. Key Phrase for the week: I will practice love without condition.

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #39 – See the Truth What is truth? Truth is the quality or state of being true. It is that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality. It is also a fact or belief that is accepted as true. Truth however is not an immobile goalpost. What is true or the truth can and does often change over time. Spirituality evolves changing the trueness of the belief and as it grows and evolves. When we talk about seeing the truth we also must look past the mask that presents itself as such. The masks often and do lie, tricking us into believing what we see is always what is real or true. We must look deep into the heart of a matter seeking to understand where an idea, belief or statement comes from. What has driven this person or faith to reach its current state? So to see the truth you must look past what is presented at face value and examine the whole, yet still understanding that it can and will change over time. Learning to see the truth is never an easy task. Key Phrase for the week: I will learn to understand the true meaning of what it is too see the truth.

One Card Draw for the week of August 8th, 2016

Published on August 8, 2016 under Weekly Readings
Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #50 – You Were Born to Create We all have the ability to create. It may be artwork, music, machine parts, clothing, food, a safe environment, or something else entirely. We also have the ability to create our own sacred space and we have the ability to create our spiritual path. There is no set formula to life, spirituality or enlightenment, there are only guidelines. How we take those guidelines and use them in order to create our space within the larger unit or Universe is how we will be judged. If you haven’t used your gifts in a while, it is time to take them out, dust them off, and start using them. It is your calling. Key Phrase for the week: I will use my gifts as they were intended to be and create.

One Card Draw for the week of August 1st, 2016

Published on August 1, 2016 under Weekly Readings
Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #49 – We Are All Connected “The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson That wonderful beautiful stardust of a body encompasses a soul which connects us on a spiritual and ethereal level. Your positive or negative tendencies have the ability to send waves through every single living being simply through all these connections. You must always remain vigilant and cognizant because we are answerable to all the laws of the Universe including the scientific ones. Every action has an opposite and equal reaction. Think about that. Your goal this week is to focus on making positive connections only. I don’t care if you are foot stomping, screaming mad at someone. If you can’t send positive energy in their direction, simply walk away, don’t send out anything at all. Key Phrase for the week: I will remember I am connected on all levels and act accordingly.

One Card Draw for the week of July 25th, 2016

Published on July 25, 2016 under Weekly Readings
Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #15 – Hear the Ancient Ones Close your eyes. Calm your breathing and your heart. Shut out everything but the whispers in the back of your mind. Can you hear them? Whispering to you? Do you understand their purpose in your life? Have you forgotten how to connect with the Ancient Ones? The Gods, the Deities, the Ancestors, the Old Ones? This week your singular objective is to remember to reconnect to the ancient spirits of all kinds that are in your life path. You must be purposeful in hearing what it is they are saying to you. They may be giving insight to the future or clarity of the past. Whisper they do, in many forms and many ways. Retrain yourself to hear them, feel them, and see them. You are their descendant and inheritor of energy. Key Phrase for the week: This week I will reconnect with the Ancient Ones in my life.

One Card Draw for the week of July 18th, 2016

Published on July 18, 2016 under Weekly Readings
Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #18 – Honor Gaia Gaia or Gaea is also known as Earth or Mother Earth. She was an early earth goddess and it is written that Gaia was born from Chaos, the great void of emptiness within the universe, and with her came Eros. She gave birth to Pontus (the Sea) and Uranus (the Sky). When we talk about Honoring Gaia, it is more than just honoring this beautiful planet on which we traverse across this great universe. It is about honoring our deepest, heavily intense, spiritual roots. These roots reach out into the primordial energy that continues to course throughout the universe as we know it. It pulsates and beats much like our own human hearts. To honor her and to honor these parts of us is to knowingly and purposely reconnect to our purest form, Universal energy. Take time to reflect on this part of yourselves this week and examine closely what that means to you. Key Phrase for the week: This week I will reflect on the rawest form of Universal energy that courses through my body.

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #12 – Focus, and then act. With the exceedingly fast pace we have to maintain in our mundane world, we often forget that the spiritual or enlightened side doesn’t always move as quickly. This is especially true when you are doing manifestation work, spell work, healing or anything requiring a slow and steady method. Too often, people want to rush their time in ritual, reiki, or healing and it just doesn’t work that way. You cannot undo years of illness or emotional trauma overnight. The same too can be said of life in general. Rash decisions make for poor choices and unintended outcomes. This week practice the art of focusing on what you want first and then the desired outcome. Once you have set your mind on both, then act upon those decisions. Doing so will increase your likelihood of success exponentially. Key Phrase for the week: This week I will be methodical in my choices and focus on what I want before acting.

One Card Draw for the week of July 4th, 2016

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #21 – Know Your Power This week is all about being in your personal power. What drives you? What motivates you to achieve great things and think outside the confines of the worldly entrapments we get tangled in? Are you proof positive that what drives you is your true source of spiritual energy? If you are not entirely comfortable with your answers to those questions, then take this week to explore them on multiple levels. I know that personally I have different sources of power that drive different areas of my life. I need math and science to feed the ‘human brain’ part of who I am, and thus my regular job fulfills this need very nicely. My emotional core is filled and nurtured by my relationship with the love of my life. Family and friends fulfill another part and it is also very much empowered and soothed by music. It is Asatru and my faith in the old ways, the Gods, and Goddesses that drive my spiritual path. So it may not necessarily be one small thing that drives every corner of your life, in fact it could be many things that together, when all in place empower you to greater and grander things. Seek out and nurture those things that empower you. They need focus and intent much like anything else. Key Phrase for the week: I will learn where my true power comes from.

One Card Draw for the week of June 27th, 2016

Deck: Messenger Oracle Card: #35 – Seek the Lesson Many of you are probably tired hearing the phrase, “There is a lesson in everything.” Well, I am here to tell you that no, there isn’t. Sometimes the things we go through are only for the experience in order to promote personal growth. Now, growth is technically a form of a lesson, but it is easy to overthink our experiences and get lost in the details of them. You can always ask yourself how something made you grow. Maybe it simply tested your resolve and you discovered you were more resilient than you though. But that isn’t necessarily a lesson that is a self-discovery. So when we talk about seeking the lesson, we are talking out taking an intentional journey in order to learn something. This means exposing yourself to an experience not only to discover something about you but to gain knowledge that isn’t necessarily egocentric. So this week, set out to learn something that will promote your growth, your knowledge and benefit the Universe. Seek out THAT lesson. Key Phrase for the week: I will look for a way to promote my growth, knowledge and benefit the Universe.
