I’ve been working the 40-day program of May Cause Miracles with Gabrielle Bernstein and recently picked up a copy of Miracles Now to assist with the process. The process has been slow going for me. Resistance has been my friend and companion along this journey. I scrambled through the first week and then lost the book somewhere in my apartment. I found it about a month later and am beginning to pick up where I left off soon. The book takes you through a weekly process of Day One- witnessing or, paying attention to something new. Then, on Day Two- surrender and the willingness to change. Day Three is about choosing loving perspective and starting to say no to fear. Day Four focuses on gratitude. Day Five is all about Forgiveness. Day Six is the Miracle Mindset. Finally on Day Seven, it’s self reflection and preparation. This is how to create miracles in your life and it is a way to live engulfed in self growth and discovery. The topics vary from week to week and progress in difficulty and build upon each other. We start Week One with Becoming Miracle Minded and end in Week Six with Working Miracles. I love this book very much. It has challenged me on my deepest core level and pushed me to grow in ways I didn’t think possible. I’m currently in the middle of the second week and my journal is already a quarter full! I may have to use two for this one! The Miracles Now deck inspires me along the way. It goes perfectly with the inner work I’m doing. Actually the deck was created to go along with her book, Miracles Now. If I’m brave enough, I may give that one a read next. Gabby is so inspiring and transforming in her thinking and writing. Please do check her out if you haven’t already! GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN
From the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue come the cards: Visualization, Trust Your Intuition and Inner Child. Monday and Tuesday ask you to visualize what you desire. What is it that you are trying to create? What do you want out of life? Get clear on your intentions early in the week. In fact, setting a daily or weekly intention may be helpful. The middle of the week, the fairies guide you to trust your intuition and follow your guidance that you receive based on your visualizations. Listen to your inner voice and meditate to gain clarity and answers. If you’re not getting any answers, ask for a clear sign you can recognize from the fairies and angels. Then, be patient but keep a keen eye for the sign. Trust me, the sign will be obvious. It could come as a song, repeated number patters, or even as a phrase you hear over and over. You may even have a chance encounter with someone who tells you just what you need to hear. The latter part of the week focuses on inner child work. The fairies ask us to get out this weekend and play! If the weather is nice where you are, enjoy it and play in it! Go for a walk or hike. Maybe visit a park or playground near to you. Take your inner child out for a play date. You can include your own children, if you have them or, just take you and your inner child. Nurture that part of you that longs to cut loose and just run wild and free. He/she will thank you. This could also be a sign to meditate with your inner child and shed some tears of sorrow on their behalf. You don’t have to get stuck there but is your inner child feeling sad or neglected? Perhaps they need to be heard and acknowledged by you. Write a letter to your inner child telling them that you are there for them now and will take care of them from now on. Or you could write a letter as your inner child and see what they have to share.
Overall this week starts of with visualizing and then moves into an emotional week. The best way to move through the emotions is to channel them with movement, your intuition and meditation and also through writing. It will be a positive week of growth for those who wish to work with the energy and see how they can best utilize it for their own personal development.
One final card from the Angel Therapy Cards by Doreen Virtue: Listen to Your Intuitive Feelings. This card is much like the mid-week card above, Trust Your Intuition. However, this card is reminding us to LISTEN to our intuition in the first place. We can’t trust what we aren’t listening to. So, the angels and fairies are being very clear here to listen and trust your intuition this week. We do have St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th and our first eclipse of the year on the 20th so, there will be some intense energies this week. To manage and get through this week, it is crucial and significant to listen and heed your inner knowing. Only you can direct your path and only you know what is best for you. With the help of your celestial team and high council you will have a great week. Just remember to call upon them for help during adversity and even during the calm and to trust/follow their guidance through all of life.
Bountiful Blessings Beloveds,
These cards were pulled from The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards deck by Colette Baron-Reid. The first card to appear was The Wind Faery. She is one of the Guides of Faery in the deck. She is concerned with thoughts, words and intellectual analysis. As the book writes, “she whispers that the power of thoughts manifests the unseen into the physical. Take time to observe your predominant thoughts. Are they positive? Do they reflect empowering concepts? Or are they negative and disempowering? When you tune in to how your mind is focused, you will surely see the relationships between your environment and the thoughts you’re thinking. To change the outer conditions, you must first change the way you think. The Wind Faery also reminds you of the power of intellect, as this is a good time to use the power of your analytical mind. Think before you act; this is not the time for impulsive action. A well-thought-our strategy will yield a positive result.”
The placement and story of this card represents that using your mind with love can benefit your creative pursuits.
The next card is a Sacred Journey Marker: Love. The book describes Love as: “This marker asks you to show love to all you meet and to remember that you are love and to keep it flowing. Also, remember to keep your heart open to receiving love, as well. You are connected to all of life and you are a steward of love. Love is the essence of the Divine in you and it sees the Divine in others. Ask yourself, “What would love do?”
In our story, Love asks you to use this feeling and power as you channel this energy in your creative projects and as you process your intellectual mind. Shift your thinking to Love and you will enjoy the rewards of a new or renewed creative project.
The last card is the Spider which is an Animal Guide of Avalon. He represents creative projects! The book writes: “You have within you the gift to create meaningful, purposeful work. Spider signals that it’s time to be aware of your responsibility for the creations in your life. Maybe you need to rethink an issue and apply your inner artist to find a solution. If you’re unhappy with anything, ask yourself, “How can I create a better, more productive and loving experience for myself and others?” Whether you see yourself as an artist or not, you’re always co-creating with the Divine. You are the architect of your own happiness and fulfillment. What life are you building? It’s time to create!”
Through looking at your intellectual processing and shifting it more into love and acceptance, a magnificent new creative endeavor beings or an old creative process is rejuvenated!
I pulled 2 more cards to see how this would transpire. From the Life Purpose Deck by Doreen Virtue we get “You’re on the Right Path”. So, basically you are doing what you need to be doing. Just continue to evaluate your mental state and move into acceptance as much as possible. Even if you aren’t doing anything, try to accept where you are. This will allow the new energy of Love to move in and motivate you toward the new creative endeavor. “Ride the Wave” from The Map by Colette Baron-Reid came up which is essentially the same card as the Right Path card. We’ve just got to hang on in there and stay the path. Things will shift as we stay in Love and process through it. Try to focus an a creative project you can enjoy or develop this week. This will allow you to channel your energy into something fun and inspiring and not get trapped into something else.
Sending you tons of angelic healing energy,
This card comes from the Indigo Angel Oracle Cards by Doreen and Charles Virtue. This deck speaks to the Indigo and Crystal in all of us. This card flew out immediately so it wanted to make itself known today that yes, YOU ARE SPECIAL! There is only one you in the world. No one can complete your life purpose and mission in this world but you and no one is exactly like you. You have a unique set of talents, abilities and creative purposes that you are here to share with the world. As a Lightworker, you are extra sensitive to energies around you but by now you have learned how to tame this and shield your energy to deal with your sensitivities. Notice how this angel is gently hugging herself in self-care mode. It’s important to give yourself the love and care that you need at this time. During Valentine’s and all the time, it’s important to love and accept yourself as the unique and special individual that you are. When was the last time you told yourself how much you love and appreciate YOU? Do it now! Mirror work is a good way to work on this. Look into a mirror that you are comfortable working with and tell yourself that you are special and loveable. Tell yourself: I love you. I am special. I am capable, powerful and talented. I can do what I set my intention to do and the angels are here to help me. Repeat your own affirmations in the mirror that make sense to you and will help you along your path. Mirror work helps us to validate our feelings and become authentic with ourselves and our emotions. If you haven’t been feeling the self-love and specialness lately, try it! Another thing you might try is that trusty journal. Begin to pen your thoughts nightly about how you’re feeling about yourself and then after several weeks, review your journal to see if there is pattern of self talk or if you’re changing your thinking over time due to the journaling process. The keys here are to engage with yourself in self talk about how your viewing yourself and to become the witness to it. Try not judge or criticize how how you’re thinking but just bring awareness to it so you can make changes and adjustments as needed. And remember to give yourself a lot of credit as you do these exercises. It takes a lot of gusto and strength and most people get lost in the process so give yourself a lot of pats of the back as you go! You’re doing the work! Yay!
It makes complete sense that the Romance Angel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue would throw this card out: “Calling in Your Soul Mate.” As we progress spiritually both individually and collectively, the celestial team above wants us to meet and be with our soul mates in this lifetime. It’s true even if you’re alone and wondering why. If you’ve met your soul mate and you’re in a happy relationship, this card is validating that and letting you know that a new passionate fire may emerge within your current relationship. For those of you who are struggling in your relationship, this could be a sign that it’s time to move on and call in the real deal. For us single ladies and gems in the world, it’s time to really get clear on what we desire and tell it to the Universe. Make a list of qualities you want in a kindred and write them down. Seal it and place it face up on your altar or in a favorite book. Meditate on the kind of ideal partner you would like and clearly see, hear, feel and smell them. This helps to draw their energy closer to yours. Ultimately, though, surrender to God and release it. Let the Universe do it’s job in setting up the union. Follow your guidance as to nudges in going to certain places or making certain dates, as guided. This is guidance from your angels helping you to meet your mate, don’t just shrug it off! As always, take good care of you. Get plenty of rest, eat well, exercise and play! This helps keep your energy high for when you do come across your significant other.
Valentine’s Day is a day of love. Love is why we are here. I love the holiday as it celebrates our life purpose and mission (with a romantic twist). Enjoy the holiday. Love is everywhere.
HAPPY ST. VALENTINE’S DAY!
