Monday 26 August to Sunday 1 September 2019
This week’s reading was inspired by images from the Mystical Shaman Oracle by Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid and Marcela Lobos. The card I’ve randomly chosen for the overall theme this week relates to your roots. When you think of a tree most of the time you can’t see what is under the ground or the root system but it is there and is central to the health of the tree. Your roots are central to your health too. Perhaps it is time to do some work on your belief system, patterns or behaviours passed on through the generations or those picked up from your family in this lifetime. Perhaps it is time for you to consider where you are and if the people and environment around you are the best for you to grow in. If not, perhaps it’s time to move on and put down roots elsewhere. Trust yourself for your inner knowing is always best but there is a definite call for change here. If you are ready, untangle yourself from what is holding you back.
Image 1: Move beyond the fear
This week the angels call upon you to embrace your courage, strength and power. You have been allowing fear to hold you back and whilst they understand why they want you to know that it is unnecessary. It is your subconscious mind and your ego that fill you with fear, not your soul. Your soul is fearless, it knows no boundaries that inhibit love and light. So, tap into your soul and into the essence of who you really are behind all that you present to be in this life. If you have placed so many layers upon yourself that you have lost sight of who that is, then there is even more reason for you to connect within. Clear away the clutter in your mind. Clear away the clutter of adulthood and go back to your younger self. This is where you will find great insight. An inner child meditation or activity may help you connect and/or understand. You were born uniquely you and you are destined to shine uniquely as you. Now is the time.
Image 2: Attune to the signs
This week the angels encourage you to open your intuition and your senses so that you can attune to the signs being sent from spirit. There is an element of you feeling lost, unsure or uncertain about where to from here. You are asking for help and guidance but you are missing the signs being sent your way. When you attune to them and trust, things will begin to make a lot more sense. How do you do that? You slow down. Be more present in each day and when you ask for a sign from above, be specific in what you want to see/feel/hear/know. There is no such thing as coincidence either, so take those experiences as a sign. Everything operates in perfect divine order so release your resistance and your fear and have more faith in the process and the outcome. You have a tendency to slip into old patterns and behaviours quite easily so be mindful of that this week too. You can keep repeating old cycles or you can choose to create a new one. It’s up to you which it will be.
Image 3: Let your higher self lead the way
This week the angels want you to know that you don’t need permission from anyone else to set yourself free. Whatever it is that you are ready and wanting to move on from it is okay. There is no need to feel guilt or shame, as life is an ever-evolving cycle. Nothing is meant to stay stagnant or the same for too long. Your soul has been ready for quite some time and your higher self is ready to fly. You have been inhibiting your own growth and freedom by worrying to much about what other people will think or by putting other people’s needs before your own. Of course, you need to take into consideration the consequences of your actions. One does not want to live a selfish life. But following the calling of your soul and living your divine purpose is never a selfish thing to do. It is why you are here, and often that is why it is challenging to achieve. It is all part of the journey. Stay positive this week, focus on the light and let your higher self lead the way!
Image 4: Stand your ground
This week the angels herald an opportunity for you to experience more freedom and joy. In order to get to that place though, you must be willing to tackle life and its challenges head on. The more strength and determination you have to achieve your goals and desires the more likely you are to succeed. There may be people or situations in the way of what you want. You can give in to them and surrender yourself to the background or you can stand your ground and refuse to let anything or anyone get in your way. There is no need for aggression but you may need to show that side of you that demands and commands attention. You have a great ability to adapt to all kinds of people and situations so if you handle things correctly, you will not only come out of this week victorious, but you’ll have some new admiration and a great deal more respect for yourself and from those around you. Keep your eyes firmly on the prize this week. It’s not that far away.
