I’ve worked in this field for 30 years now and the secret to the best way to connect with divine guidance is decidedly not typically how people do it when in times of chaos and uncertainty. (especially lately)
You know what I mean right? You’re freaked out about something so you run to your computer or phone to pick a card online or grab the oracle cards on your table. Shuffle shuffle shuffle. OMG tell me what’s happening??
Your motive? Fear and the need to be told all will be well. You’re looking for certainty in the most uncertain of times, and your energy is completely wonky. You will likely have already decided what the cards mean anyway, or hope they mean and so you project onto them to suit your story rather than see the whole picture. If you don’t like what they say, heck no one is looking let’s put those back and pick new ones.
Or maybe you think you finally found The One and even though you just met you want to know if he (or she) is going to be your very own forever Beloved supporting your every move, cooking dinner while you embark on building the life of your dreams. Speaking of which, you also might be looking at your career and want to know how can you become all that you know you can when the world isn’t behaving? Of course, it’s natural to try to hold on to a branch when the world looks like a super ninja obstacle course.
I swear I wish I could just have a HUG button on my website that senses the energy the person brings to the request for a card’s advice that says “You belong, life will not pass you by, you are loved, hang in there, you won’t end up a bag lady, yes babies are for you! No one can take your dreams away from you. Come back when you’re calm!”
Remaining curious, open, unattached and receptive is the ONLY way to get a true and accurate glimpse into your life’s journey.
I get it. It’s so easy to be calm and curious when your state of mind is certain and you’re really only looking for confirmation about all the good stuff you already know is happening. Yet these days the outer conditions of the world have become so chaotic unless we find inner stillness and move to a new level of mindful choice making, we run the risk of being influenced by our old unprocessed wounds that can easily get triggered by our own reactions to our environment, not just actual events. When we are in that state there is no truth, only projection like finger puppets casting shadows on a wall. Yes some days it’s daunting. And there are real things in the world that are painful. It is hard some days to face the day let alone the potential of the future.
Enter the need for guidance.
So, let me ask you this week to do one thing. Imagine your choices and the energy moving you forward when you’re coming from anxiety, scarcity, resentment, and fear as your main energy. What do you hear the world say to you? What do you notice or assume? What choices would you make? What options do you have? What would the oracle cards reflect?
What about coming at all of it now from a neutral place of observation? Start with centered, reverent, surrendered, receptive, open: and then approach an oracle with a question. Maybe when you get into that space you won’t even care about asking that first question you thought was the end of the world if you didn’t hear the message the way you wanted it? Maybe when you’re more relaxed and your intuition clicks into that soft focus you can really get the message you need to understand what certain things really mean in your life as you uplevel to manifest your most authentic, happy, prosperous and purposeful life.
That’s really what we all need to learn. How do we connect on a regular basis with the Higher Self, the inner Witness that is the most powerful place from which to shape reality and be shaped by the Divine? One of the guiding principles we explore in Oracle School is how to get into a state of neutrality, and I show you how to use this as an important step in approaching my oracle cards (or any Oracle for that matter).
When we make contact to that vast creative place within us, in a state of receptive curiosity, we’re able to know the will of the universe for us, and we can maybe chillax a little and remember that faith can move mountains, but fear just digs a hole.
This week the fiery planet Mars is going to go retrograde and that means we all need to check our impulses, be extra aware of our anxiety and anger levels. This planetary influence has already proven to show its effect as we’ve been moving closer to the retrograde. Have you noticed if you or your loved ones may have begun to show a level of irrational behavior that has been surprising? This is a time to be cautious when feeling the impulse to act on resentments and blame as it will backfire. For the rest of the summer as introspection is a welcome form of this retrograde, find that inner center of quiet mindful peace and go within and search for the places that need compassion and healing. Stay playful too. Stay curious and watch the miracles happen.
Know that you are loved and love is always the answer.
