Card for Today - sacred path cards

19. Painted Face - Self Expression

The painted face speaks of self expression. It tells you to use your creativity in order to express your feelings, talents or desires. Expressing who and what you are at any given moment is healing as well as productive. As you change and grow you may well feel the need to alter the way in which others perceive you. Changing your appearance, attitudes and activities to match the new you may be called for at this time.

The keynote is that this card asks you to open up and allow others to see your medicine. In that way, you are offering a gift to others who may have need of your talents. Don't deny how you feel, what you think, or what you can offer to the world. In truth and with grace it is now time to allow the medicine of the self to emerge. You will never lose face by presenting the true self minus the self importance.

ANIMAL TOTEM of the night - fox

Very short Excerpt taken from Ted Andrews (Animal Speak)

FOX - Feminine magic of camouflage, shapeshifting and invisibility, Nocturnal, dawn and dusk.

Fox teaches how to be invisible, camouflaged, shape shifting. The fact there are 21 different varieties around the world has significant metaphysical significance.
21 in the tarot deck signifies the world. It reflects a new world opening up and that the process of creation is beginning. It reflects that the world is growing and shapeshifting itself into new patterns that will be beneficial. Meditate on this card to understand how fox medicine can be helping with creation. It can reveal what is growing and shapeshifting in your own world.

It has a long history of cunning and magic associated with it. Because its a creature of the night it is often imbued with supernatural power. Because its an animal of the between times and places it could be a guide to enter the fairy realm.

Practising and using camouflage is something everyone with a fox totem should learn to do. You can adjust the the frequency and intensity of the energy field so that you harmonize with others. You can focus on changing its appearance so that you blend in.

The historical character of Merlin had to have used fox medicine and energy to accomplish much of what he did. Even during his lifetime Merlin was ahistorical and unrevealed.. he was largely unknown to the greater public except as merlin. When he was summoned by the kings, he came silently, disguised as a poor wood cutter or a peasant. he practiced concealement habitually and for a long period of time.

The fox uses its ability at quiet camouflage to its benefit. With practice you can develop the same kind of ability so you may see or hear things that otherwise could not.

An aspect of fox fur has a significance as well with anyone with a fox totem. Hair is often associated with psychic energy serving as antennae. Hair and fur are symbols of energy and fertility and layers of fur reflect levels of energy and fertility. With the fox its the undercoat which is the primal source from which an individual draws his/her abilities. As the outer hair changes as does the expression of the inner creative force. Its tail is a symbol of the feminine creative forces.
Individuals with fox totems have an ability to insulate themselves from anything that may seem to be cold especially in relationships. They can become warm and cozy in themselves.

A fox's tracks look like a single row of footprints this reflects a straight forward expression of the feminine energy.

They have the ability to run up trees which reflects an ability to move in different dimensions.

They have an ability to hear what is not being said as well as any whispering going on. This ability is also tied in to clairaudience, the ability to hear spirit.

They have excellent eyesight and an ability to see moving objects especially at the edges or borders of areas. Because of this it is not unusual with those of this totem to see spirit, see those beings of the 'between places' like the faires and elves.

Card for Today - messages from the angels deck - Doreen Virtue - 12/7/10

Omega

You have chosen to follow your Divine Guidance and the universe is flowing in natural rhythm with your decision. When you listen to the messages your heart whispers, you swim in natural synchronicity with the tide of your life purpose.
Stay relaxed and confident, and keep moving forward with happiness and grace.

If along the way you notice problems occurring, then its time to stop and centre yourself. When problems occur it just means you are out of sync with the universe's rhythms. There's no need for analysis and shame when this occurs. Simply pray or meditate, breathe deeply, and wait until you feel strongly about your next move.

Your victory is inevitable in this situation so you needn't worry.
Whatever happens is supposed to happen, and when it happens is the
correct time.

Card for today - Sacred path cards 9/7/10

10. West Shield

If the West Shield has appeared in your spread, bear is asking you to look at your present goals and discern how they affect your future. Are the answers you seek from your own inner knowing?? If not, it may be time to enter the silence and digest the questions so that your personal answers can emerge.

Bear also reminds us that the West Shield is the place of all tomorrows. If you are afraid of the unknown it may be time to clear away the fear. Strength to accomplish this clearing is bear's greatest medicine. Call on bear and feel the courage to meet the future fill your spirit.

In all cases the west shield speaks of the ability to complete our goals, the acknowledgement of our inner strengths and the power to find and know our own answers.

Remember.. the opinions of others become mixed with our own doubts and become limitations when we forget to Enter the Silence.

On a lighter note.. Who lives here???



Almost every day I walk in this woodland. Every day I pass this chair.. always there are remnants of a fire, embers that burn. Never have I seen anyone either on the chair, by the fire or in the vicinity of the woods..

I took my dad here a few times.. he reckoned there must be a 'hobo' living there.. I reckoned it was Bilbo Baggins..

We decided it must be Hobo Baggins spot.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A day of revelations, a day filled with magic.

Oh and a day of seeing the first thing I ever intentionally manifested appear...
I visualised a carpet for the bedroom of the cabin. Without even so much as measuring the floor, someone came in today with an offcut of brand new carpet that just happened to be a perfect fit.. I'm not especially into 'stuff' but I must say how nice it is to know that manifestations actually do work.

No choice but to trust in magic.

The Sea - Going into the deep


How beautiful it is to float and bob around in the sea, to let go and become a part of the gentle ebb and flow.. allowing the rise and fall of the waves to carry us into the shore.

It does take a great deal of courage and gentle strength to dive through the murky waters into the deep but in so doing what treasures there are to be found. Would we see the starfish, the seahorses. Would we see the colours of the variety of marine life by only bobbing around on the surface I wonder?

Do any of life's poets tell of life's bob on a gentle sea or do they reflect the words and heart of a warrior that has dared to go deeper?

The treasurers of the deep when brought back to the surface are the vivid jewels of an open heart that expands with love.

Can one truly deem to know of love or be able to truly love without having first had the courage to delve into the depths of the soul, found the love in your own heart and seen your own face reflected in every leaf of every tree, every petal of every flower, every drop of water in the ocean, every grain of sand, every mountain, of every moving living thing, of every person that you meet, of the universe itself?

Its only from this place that we can truly know of love at its purest.

Within the oneness of everything we each carry with us a note, that makes up a song, which is sung in harmony.

A poet uses words. A painter paints a picture. A musician plays an instrument..
we all use our creativity for the same purpose, to express our essence and share the beauty in our souls. We give freely, demanding nothing and the creativity flows.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanking the Great Spirit for the magical journey of life.

Gratitude.

To the collective consciousness, the 1heart and all sentient beings...
"I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One." - Namaste, gratitude.

Signing off for a weekend of camping, laughter, drumming, singing and dancing at a Pow Wow. Wishing everyone a weekend of love, peace and joy.

Notes

A day of shifting energies and release.

Releasing all the old conditioning crap that no longer serves a purpose.

Releasing, releasing, releasing, releasing, releasing.

Thanking the fears for assisting in growth, letting them know that they are
now longer relevant in the beautiful life i create second by second.

As the day wears on I can feel a renewed sense of inner power, a radiant light
beginning to really shine and as it shines, I'm surrounded by dragonflies that flutter around like fairies and swallows that swoop and dive over my head.
Seven heart shaped stones appear at my feet.

The tide must go out before building up into a giant wave.. I can sense it building.

There is a great sense of shifting energy this week, I'm not the only one feeling it. as though we're all in the dip of a wave before it rises into something huge.
There is something going on in the universe at the moment, i can't see any pictures
can only sense the feeling.

Attending a native american pow wow this weekend.. should be powerful.. taking my drum.

GaiaStar Card - Codex cards

This card has come up for a second time today, finally managed to figure out how to scan the beautiful mandala that goes with the reading.



The GaiaStar is the Earth as a wish-granting planet. Like talismans and genies of old, the GaiaStar helps you fulfill your global desires.

The outermost frame of the image is made from an ancient tree, Grandmother Madrone. within her sheltering warmth, the other elements rest. Just inside this wooden frame is a layer of "cyberdelic" rock, its orange colour digitally shifted to blue to reflect its new vibration. The azure expanse evokes peace of an evening sky. Against that field is a vibrant twelve-sided disc of roses.

Next is a five pointed star made from a golden eagle's feather. To reveal a different octave of its sacred medicine power, the feather's colour is changed from earthy brown to softest blue. The points of the star stretch to the edges of the rosy disc, like arms reaching out in embrace. The centre of the star is open to the redness of the underlying flower.

Inside this scarlet nexus is the four part seed of seeds. The blue green globe is the symbol of the turned-on earth. This glowing chrysocolla sphere appears throughout the Codex to herald the reborn world. Here the globe encloses a golden-crystal hexagram, reflecting the crystalline structure of the DNA. Twin snakes within the crystal depict the double helix of generative code. At the icon's innermost core is a small circle of sweet fruit. This is the egg that holds and nurtures the seminal intention of planetary emergence.

Combining wood, rock, flower, feather and crystal, the GaiaStar icon is alchemically complete. When you have a true wish to fulfill, draw deeply from this vessel of planetary grace.

TOTEM OF THE DAY - PEACOCK

PEACOCK


Resurrection and watchfulness

The Peacock has many legends
surrounding its beautiful plumage.
Greek mythology tells of Hera
giving the peacock its many "eyes"
while Chinese mythos says that
the blending of the five colors of its feathers
is the sweet harmony of sound.

The Peacock is also associated with the Phoenix.

In Egypt, the Peacock is linked
to the Sun God Ra
and in Christianity,
the Peacock
is the symbol of death and resurrection.


Those who have a Peacock as a totem can receive insight into
their past lives and their karmic connection to their current life.
The study and use of foot reflexology would also be beneficial
as the feet are very pronounced in the Peacock.

The Peacock loud and raucous call, almost like laughter,
reminds us to laugh at life.

BEAUTY


Beauty reveals itself everywhere when you look at the world with beautiful eyes.

Nature sings you her favourtite songs, the birds bring you messages on the wing, the clouds bring you love from the universe..

All you have to do is trust that life loves you and the brightest of stars will twinkle in the night sky.

The brighter you shine and radiate your light, the more that life shines right back at you.

Be beautiful.

A rune reading for the week

ANSUZ
AS (A)
ODIN

A Rune sacred to Odin, God of Wind and Spirit.

Right Side
A rune of God's blessing and joy. A time to expect the unexpected, new beginnings and communications, messengers, signals and gifts. A guarantee of harmony and order. A warning to fortify oneself before attempting to come to the aid of others. "The divine breath, the sacred ash and the world tree." As this rune is also representative of Odin himself other meanings associated with this rune are: wisdom, psychic power and aid from someone older

Positively affects the runes around it

Berkana/ Beorc: The Mother
Berkana is the most feminine of all the runes; her very glyph is a pair of breasts, and she overflows with nurturing. She is especially linked with the magic of trees (especially birches, of course) and contains the energy of the tree reaching yearningly toward the sky. She is growth with no limits and no boundaries, and as such she will give until she has no more, and then quietly fade away for a time, and nothing will bring her back until she has recuperated. She is especially fond of mothers, children, and the needy; she hangs in a sort of aura of pearlescent light and pours out love to those who ask for it. Berkana is the greatest of the limrunar, the healing runes, but she can only heal in accord with Wyrd, so if she cannot help, look to the threads for information. If she does not like the purpose of the magic she is being tied into, she will weep, but not strike back.Berkana is most fond of the realm of Vanaheim, although she has an odd fondness for the tall trees of the Jotunheim forests.

ANIMAL TOTEM - MOTH

The Moth is a totem of ideas, intuition and sensitivity. The wings, bodies, and legs of the moth are covered with numerous touch hairs and is highly sensitive to vibrations. They can feel, smell, taste and determine temperatures with their feathery antennae and have the ability to perceive everything with clarity. Moth people usually have strong psychic and healing abilities. They must be careful not to pick up other peoples problems and carry them around in their own energy field. If this happens confusion and irritability can set in. The process of metamorphosis is part of the magic the moth holds. The egg stage symbolizes the birth of an idea. The larvae stage indicates the laying of a foundation. The chrysalis stage represents the process of creating, and the winged stage allows it to take flight and explore new territory.

NOTES 1/7/10

Let nature guide you through all the transitions.

Crow and the wind say:- Share your JOY.. feel the life force running through you,
dance, sing, create. Lighten up and smile.. the world loves it when you smile.

I wasn't going to post on this blog for a couple of days due to a burst of creative enthusiasm pushing me on to create a couple of new blogs. However, I was reminded of the importance of sharing in the power of joy by the Wind and Crow.

Its been fun playing with the wind on the field today. I barely had to sweep at all, it very kindly blew the leaves right to the end of the bed for me. Thank you wind for your kind assistance, most grateful. The metal posts on the end of the bed sang a big OM with wind blowing through them, so we united in our OM's and sent out love to the universe.

Think about what gives you most joy? What is it that you are passionate about and driven to do. How do you share in your joy?
