Card For Today

Solar Plexus Chakra

Our card for today, Thursday, April 26th, is taken from the Conscious Spirit Oracle Deck – Solar Plexus Chakra – “I take actions daily that awaken my personal power.”

Yesterday’s card from another card deck was called Power so power, our own personal power, seems to be a theme for now. For many of us, as Lightworkers, there seems to be a blockage of our solar plexus chakra which can lead to things like low self-esteem, the inability to make decisions for ourselves, anxiety, and fear. There seems to be a general theme of unworthiness among the majority of people I know. When we talk about unworthiness, it always brings to mind the quote by Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

So how do we open or bring this chakra back into balance? The color associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra is bright yellow, like the sun. We can spend some time imagining a bright yellow lotus blossom opening in the area of our Solar Plexus Chakra, which is located between the navel and the bottom of the sternum or breastbone. We can wear or carry stones associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. These stones include Citrine, Tiger’s Eye or Amber, generally any stone that is yellow. As the Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the sun, spending time in the sun will help tremendously to open or unblock that chakra. There are other things we can do, like meditation and yoga, and there are many helpful tips on the internet as well. As we take steps to open or unblock our Solar Plexus Chakra, we reclaim our own personal power, and as we do so we also open the way for others to do the same.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Power

Our card for today, Wednesday, April 25th, is taken from the Magical Times Empowerment Cards – Power – “Call upon the elements. Focus your intentions. The greatest dragon is within you.”

From the moment we are born into this world we are told we are born of sin, we are dirty and powerless. As you all know by now I am a big fan of Kryon as channeled by Lee Carroll, and Kryon says this is a lie that we are born dirty. He says that we are born magnificent and powerful. We have been lied to because someone doesn’t want us to know how magnificent and powerful we really are. Perhaps it has to do with controlling us, because if we knew how powerful we really are, well let’s just say that those trying to control us and keep us as slaves here on planet earth would lose whatever control they have over us. Just maybe we would all stand up and say enough is enough. Just maybe when we see injustice or evil being carried out on the planet, instead of believing we have no power to do anything, we can begin to believe that we do in fact have the power to bring about positive change. What about the power of prayer? If we can do nothing physically ourselves, we can pray for that country, or those people, or that situation. Prayer does bring about miracles because when we pray we focus our intent. Our words and thoughts have power.

This card is reminding us that we have great power, and that we can use that power to achieve or manifest anything we want in our lives. Right now the manifestation part takes a little time and that is because not everyone is using their power of manifestation for the greater good, there are still some who operate from the perspective of greed and control so there has to be a failsafe, a time lag, in place. However as we move further along this ascension path and the energies increase on this planet, the time between intent and manifestation is getting shorter. This also means that negativity and lower vibrational thoughts and emotions are becoming a thing of the past, they can’t exist in the higher vibrations on the planet. So as long as we focus our intentions, and those intentions are good and not just for the benefit of ourselves, we will start to see our manifestations appear in our lives a lot faster. And remember there is no limit to what we can accomplish if we are coming from a place of love. All we have to do is look to the words of Jesus when He said “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12 NIV)

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

I Must Focus on Wanted to Manifest Wanted

Our card for today, Tuesday, April 24th, is taken from the Getting into the Vortex Cards – I Must Focus on Wanted to Manifest Wanted…

This card is a reminder that we have the power of where or on what we choose to place our attention or focus. When bad things are going on around us or in the world at large, we can choose to focus on that, or we can choose to focus on something else, something we want to manifest into our lives and our world. We have little or no control over what goes on around us, or in the world, or on what the people around us are doing, but we do have control over our response to it. We can choose to get involved and get dragged down into the muck and mire of it all, or we can choose to take the higher road and walk away if possible, or not to respond to negativity with more negativity. As hard as it may seem at times, the choice is indeed ours.

What we need to remember is that what we focus on we create more of, that’s the Law of Attraction at work. If we continue to focus on the negative, or the horrible, or any of the things we don’t want, we will create more of that. So if we want less negativity and drama, or less horrible events to happen in the world, then we must choose to focus on the positive, on something beautiful or joyful, on things like good health and prosperity for all. It also helps to use our faith and trust that there is a grand plan at work here, and no matter how bad things may seem, God does have it under control. That should help us focus on the wanted and not on what we don’t want. As we do this more and more, we will see our lives and the world change for the better.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

The Thinking Woman

Our card for today, Monday, April 23rd, is taken from the Energy Oracle Cards – The Thinking Woman – Female of Wisdom or Understanding

This card is asking us to be open to our own inner guidance in every situation we may find ourselves in. As Lightworkers most of us are also empathic by nature. This is a great resource when it comes to understanding the other person’s perspective in any given situation, it can also help us know if the person is being truthful and sincere with us. We sometimes get a “gut feeling” about something and we are being told to trust this. When our “spidey senses” go off telling us something just isn’t right, we need to pay attention and not just write it off as “it’s just my imagination”. If we pay attention to our guidance, we can save ourselves a lot of heartache and disappointment, and sometimes even prevent ourselves from being involved in a tragedy of some kind. But we have to be open and listening, and then ready to act on what we are getting and not just dismiss it.

In today’s world we are being bombarded by lots of information about what is going on in our world, not all of it is truth, and so we must use our own discernment to determine the validity of everything we see or hear. It is up to us to understand that we have the power within ourselves to know if something rings true or not for us. We can also take it upon ourselves to do some research of our own when we are unsure about anything and what we are “receiving” about it. In some cases it can be hard to tell because we may trust the source, but our inner guidance tells us something isn’t quite right. So then we do our own research and not just accept something at face value because so and so said it was true. In today’s world it is imperative to do our own thinking and use our own inner wisdom to uncover the truth.

Affirmation: “I open my mind and heart to my own inner wisdom. I am thoughtful, focused, and clear.” (Energy Oracle Cards Guidebook)

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For The Weekend

Inner Trust

Our card for the weekend, April 21st and 22nd, is taken from the Sacred Rebels Oracle – Inner Trust – “This oracle brings you the message that it is time for you to trust yourself and let the real, inner you out from behind the veil.”

We have been taught from a young age to hide who we truly are inside. We are told our emotions are inappropriate, we are told that what we believe is not the norm, we are told that the way we look isn’t acceptable for one reason or another. So many of us have lost our individuality all so that we can “fit in”, not stand out, and not be uniquely ourselves. We have conformed to what society deems as acceptable and normal. And yet deep inside every one of us lies a longing to drop the façade and be who we really are inside ourselves with all our quirkiness and deeply felt emotions. Everyone may have been created equal, but we are also all unique in our expression of the piece of the Creator that we are.

In trying to be like everyone else or to be liked by everyone, we have done a great disservice to ourselves and to the world. That is why the time has come when we must drop the pretense and be our true authentic selves. We all have unique talents and gifts that will be needed, that are needed now, by humanity as we move through this ascension process. Things are changing at a rapid rate and the changes are not stopping anytime soon. The more that happens, the less people feel in control of their own lives. Some people are literally losing their grip on reality and feel adrift on these stormy seas. That is why we must drop the veil and let our lights shine out into the darkness.

As Lightworkers we are also Lighthouses that are beacons of hope for those who are lost. As we remain centered inside ourselves and remain calm in the midst of chaos, many will look to us for guidance and for answers as to what is happening to our world. It is time to open ourselves up, trust our own inner guidance, and let our own inner knowing lead the way. We can do this, this is why we are here. This is the time when we are needed most and this is what we signed up for. Remember, we raised our hands when “the call” went out and said “I can do this!”, and because of our strength of spirit and our determination, we were chosen. Now it’s time to trust ourselves, step up and be who we really are. Let’s do this!

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

High Priestess of Spirit

Our card for today, Friday, April 20th, is taken from the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards – High Priestess of Spirit – “I am Nyx, Goddess of Night, and you have chosen this symbol to help guide you on this journey to find an answer to your question. Consider that there is an invisible spirit within all living things.”

Okay let’s begin this reading with something Gregg Braden said in a video I watched a couple of years ago. In it he was talking about the creator of all things, God. So if we agree that God is love and that He created all things, then it stands to reason that everything is of God and therefore everything is also love, no exceptions. So if we are facing something sad or terrible, then we also have to accept that no matter what it looks like, it’s still love. Make sense?

We can’t begin to know the reasons why some things happen to us or even to the world at large, but we must accept that there is a reason even if we don’t know, or may never know, what that reason is. I think it’s part of human nature to want answers, but sometimes we have to have faith and trust that there is a good reason for everything that happens. Nothing is ever by accident even though it may seem that way. So even though we may want an answer to our question, we have to accept we may not get one. Remember, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God”. (Romans 8:28)

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Three of Earth

Our card for today, Thursday, April 19th, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards – Three of Earth – “The power of creativity. Recognition for very high quality work. Be a “team player”.

I think we can all agree that we live in a time of great change. All we need do is look at what is happening on the world stage, whether that is politics, weather, or even just what is happening in our own part of the world. I follow a couple of Youtube channels that deal with strange weather changes, bizarre behavior of wildlife around the world, earthquakes and volcanoes, and so on. There is much that is happening and much that is difficult to wrap our minds around. We may wonder what is going on and what we can do. The most important thing we can do right now is not go into fear, which is hard to do at times, but we need to remember that there is a grand plan at work here and God does in fact know what He is doing. We are asked to have faith and trust that everything will work out for the good of all.

Next we are asked to use our own particular gifts and talents to help those around us who may be experiencing difficulties. For example if we live in an area where the power has gone out due to storms, if we know there are elderly people living in the neighborhood, it helps to check on them, make sure they have a way to stay warm and that they have food. This may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but to those we help it will mean a lot. And just imagine if everyone on the planet adopted this attitude of helping each other when times are tough, what a difference it would make to the world at large. I watched a video of a severe hail storm in the Middle East where they are not used to having hail, they live in the desert! The animals were dying because of being hit by the hail and people were out trying to get as many animals, including camels, to safety. Many still died because they couldn’t save them all, but it was a team effort to save what they could. So there is no excuse for not doing anything in difficult situations, if we can help one person or animal, then we are contributing to the greater good.

So even though we may feel small and helpless in times of crisis, there is always something we can do, even if it doesn’t seem like much to us at the time. We are being asked to remember that we are part of a greater community now and to remember that we are all in this together. In case anyone has forgotten, we are going through the ascension process and no one said this was going to be easy. We are experiencing the birthing process as a collective and birth can be messy and painful. We just need to remember this and to keep shining our light in the darkness to help others who are unaware of what is happening find their way home too.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
