Monday 20 to Sunday 26 August 2018
This week’s reading was inspired by images from the Mystical Shaman Oracle cards by Alberto Villoldo, Collette Baron-Reid, and Marcela Lobos. The card I’ve randomly chosen for the overall theme this week relates to taking action, particularly on anything that you have been procrastinating about. You can let your fears, doubts and insecurities keep plaguing you and keeping you stuck or you can summon up your inner strength and move beyond them. You have what it takes to do that, but it really is up to you. There’s no need to wait ‘until’ because you have everything you need to make that start. Do it and you won't look back.
Image 1: Love is the key
This week the angels remind you that you are part of the universal and collective consciousness. All the divine mysteries and magic of the world are available to you and in fact are part of you. Draw upon the energies that are available within you and to you so that you can make the most of them. Love is the key that will unlock the door for you so you are being encouraged to embrace and honour love as much as you can. Are you loving your life? Do you love yourself? Are you allowing love to flow freely to and from you? If you answered no to any of these, then that is the area for you to work on. Bring love to that aspect of yourself and/or your life and the universe will respond accordingly. Although some things are out of your control remember that you always have responsibility for your life. Accept that responsibility and move beyond your blockages or your apathy. Magical experiences await you when you do.
Image 2: The choice is yours
This week the angels want you to know that you are on the precipice of an important decision. You can keep doing what you’re doing without any major interruption to your life but be mindful that if you choose to continue what you are doing, there will be consequences that you’ll have to deal with in the future. There is only so far you can stretch yourself (your mind, your body, your spirit) by staying in the same spot. However, you can choose to free yourself from the constraints, patterns and behaviours that have been holding you back in an area of your life. This will involve some form of uncomfortableness, as you will need to step out of your comfort zone, but it will bring with it rewards that are worth it. To untangle yourself you need to start with acceptance. Accept who you are, as you are. Accept your situation as it is. Once you make peace with where you are it will give you the freedom you need to start the process of change. You can do it!
Image 3: Use your common sense
This week the angels guide you to use your common sense. There is no need for fancy or complicated things or approaches this week. Simple is best. Simplify your thoughts. Simplify your choices. Simplify your actions. Simplify your environment. Modern life can be wonderful in so many ways, but it can also be very overwhelming. There are so many more demands for your time and attention than there used to be. So this week, forget about all the pressures on you and take care of yourself and your needs. The angels and spirit will be doing all they can to help you so when you take a few steps, they’ll meet you along the way. In addition, look to ancient and natural remedies and recipes this week, especially those within your own ancestry. There is a lot to be said for how things used to be made and done. In addition, connect with nature this week too. It will help cleanse, clear and ground you.
Image 4: Keep your eye on the prize
This week the angels encourage you to stay focused on your goals. Set a direction and then a course of action and do not let anyone or anything sway you from it. Whilst you can still be a little flexible in how you get to where you want to go, don’t bend too far. You don’t want to get lost on the way and have to turn back to where you’ve come from. Draw upon your inner strength and have confidence in your ability to succeed. The stronger and more fierce you approach your goals the more likely you will be to succeed. There’s no need to alienate or scare anyone else off during the process though. The strength, determination and fierceness you need are all within and all needed for you. It is important to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Be consistent in your approach but also have patience. If you keep taking things one day at a time and accomplishing what you need to do each day, you’ll reach your goal before you know it.
