Oracle Reading for July 3 : Navigating with the Masks we wear while Focusing on goals in order to grow

We wear many masks to hide ourselves as we maneuver through the many realms of the self and our environment ie social scene. Know where and what to stay focussed on. Some answers are not hidden, rather, they are in plain sight and we must have the courage to accept and process them in order to grow.
We center & stabilize ourselves by embracing our power and crown each moment with rationale; as the unseen supports us with visible assistance.
July 4 is Independence Day for the USA! So I cheer on everyone on their own path to Personal Independence! Know that you have the power to change your life! Focus on your question/issue/task, acknowledge what needs to be known in your awareness, and wear masks when you feel the need to do so with investigative work.

Late update, I went to the beach last night to swim in the waves, reconnect, and recent. Self Care is very important, and it may be the solution in plain sight that we are ignoring when we are caught up in everything. Other than working on several business projects and re-organizing my residence i have also fallen back in love with Reading and i’m consuming books with furor!

Here’s a photo of some delicious books i have been going through

And be careful around the Ocean, last night the tide got so high that it swept away my towel while i was swimming, and then while i was on shore, it poured into the parking lot! I have never seen it do that before, but people who’v been going to that beach for longer than me say that it happens sometimes, after the beach area changes shape. I am just thankful that a friendly bystander saved my bag by dragging it away from the tide. My bag did get half soaked but at least it was still there and had not been swept away! Now I am on the search for another oversized towel. I was quite attached to the one that got swept away, it was big and round, perfect for card readings, relaxing around, sitting for meditation, and thick enough to absorb lots of water when needed.


Preparing for the Weekend! Look within and maintain boundaries as we rest and enjoy the break!

Right now we are managing our burdens and setting some aside in order to allow ourselves a time of relaxation in which we can recenter ourselves and refocus our efforts. To prepare for this weekend we should cut the inner ties to attachments which no longer serve us, such as obsessions and repetitive patterns of thoughts. Release ourselves so that we can be open to love from the Universe. We do not need to disconnect physically from those in our network as a good network of those who assist or lead us will provide a balanced base for prosperity.

love & wealth

To enjoy this weekend to the fullest, have proper boundaries and stay within integrity of yourself. After cutting away toxic ties, clear yourself of the energy surrounding them and keep them away. If you have difficulty with your network, clear your mind with a meditative practice and rise above any drama that is present, it’s time to let the drama go. Today’s (June 30, 2016) reading was about the end of drama and strife, the weekend reading is more about rest.

What helps us release ourselves is while acknowledging and accepting our shadow, we also know that we do mot have to force it out. Instead, we may let it surface naturally on its own and face it in context with the situation. We are ready, we are prepared, we do not need to preemptively start a fight with ourselves. We can let ourselves be and process what naturally flows within us.

Both our search for healing and the difficulty we encounter on this journey towards balanced wealth (money, time, health, network/family) grounds us. Our wounded inner selves may withdraw from unfamiliar situations and unknown variables, however, a breakthrough is imminent.
Breakthrough!

What crowns us is kindling the fire within and toning down on external activity in order to prevent burnout.

When there’s a lot to do and a lot of Karma to work through, sometimes it’s best to take a break and refresh ourselves.

For assistance with maintaining healthy boundaries, here is a wonderful video from Doreen Virtue with tip on how to maintain assertiveness with family members and difficult relationships. These tips are great when dealing with Anyone that exhibits behavior that “triggers” us.

EFT or the Emotional Freedom Technique helps with boundaries also And although I do not have videos on boundary setting with EFT, I do have some nice Wealth creation because …

The Wealth card popped up twice! So I decided to add Margaret Lynch‘s Tapping for an extra $1,000 a Month video

Here’s another video about tapping for asking for $50,000 a year 😛

Side note: I bought her Tapping Into Wealth book because multiple business coaches recommended it and although I have not read it yet (I am being distracted by some Really FUN books about metaphysics, psychic development, and Gaia Project books I Also bought), I am Really looking forward to reading it while on my upcoming road trip 🙂
Also, bookstores are just Too Much Fun!!!

Also, no videos on how to relax right now, but if you need help with that, you should sit still and Breath Deeply until you feel better.


Preparing for the New Moon in June

(Cards depicted are the Sacred Symbols Oracle Deck by Marcella Kroll

The ending of Mercury Retrograde last week combined with the cleansing of ourselves and gratitude for & commemoration of the Ancestors [through celebration] this weekend, we are grounded and ready to build towards out goals. Focusing on physical symbols of the dream we wish to manifest will assist us and keep us on track, and a good foundation will protect us. It is time to transmute and uplift our energy as we move forward!

We prepare for the New Moon, and a new Cycle.

Suggestions
Meditation stills the mind and lets the subconscious unravel into the stream of consciousness, relaxing the self.

Ease the mind and build the self, this upgrade in energy within allows us to focus our external actions towards our goals and build external foundations for growth.

Reconnection & Recalibration

Swimming in the waves this Sunday allow me to cleanse myself and reconnected with the microcosm within myself as I let the worries and frustrations of the past go. Floating amongst the waves and letting the cold ocean water rinse off all energetic influences and slosh me around in waves allowed me to surrender my fears and anxieties. As my heart fast with the excitement and of being in moving water and felt it’s strength all around me, I exuded all the pent up negativity that had been piling up. I let myself acknowledge my vulnerability amidst the sloshing waves, as the heavily salted water went in my mouth, my eyes, my nose, my throat, drawing out all the energetic impurities I had accumulated this past cycle. With the release of clogged energy, emotions, fears, and worries, I was finally able to open up to reconnect with the world. I swam till my legs were too tired to run on land against the tug of the withdrawing tide, so I waited until the waves became smaller and gently flowed onto the beach. As I stepped back onto land, tired out from expulsion of clogged energy, vulnerability and anxiety, I was ready to relax and take in the day.

In accordance with the message I received from Spirit, this Memorial Day weekend I spent time with friends and family, celebrating this life to honor the dead and all the blood, sweat and tears they shed to make this it possible for us to enjoy what we have. I thank Spirit for their message to rejoice and celebrate Together, sharing our joyful energy and embracing the vibrance of the day. Even though it was cast over and cold, we enjoyed ourselves in this relaxing adventure.

I came home from the beach relaxed and Energized! The perfect combination to start off the week! It also recalibrated my cycle and got me to an earlier sleep schedule which helps me prepare for early appointments later this week.

On Monday night I went through a mechanical purge of the unhelpful past habit of burning out online working on projects till I was too tired to stay awake and then could not fall asleep at all due to nerves so I stayed up working on some Manifestation homework and finally went to bed at 6am when I REALLY was too tired and passed out as soon as I laid down.

Today, the day after the purge, I am DONE with my unhelpful habits of the past and ready to begin a new cycle! Centered, rejuvenated and cleansed by this weekend!

I will no longer desperately apply to projects and job openings that “look good” I Know that I have work, am completing work, and have enough financially to keep me going. I will focus on my self-development, my classes (self development & business), really learn from my coaching sessions, and Clean Up!


Facing Frustrations and Letting Go to Grow

(cards pictured are the Sacred Symbols Oracle Deck by Marcella Kroll)

This past weekend I went through another emotional roller coaster of lows as I was unable to properly launch my Tarot business or my Periscope lecture series, then highs as I refilled myself with hope when I was encouraged by my teachers before and after their Spirit Circle, whence I came up with new ideas to work with, and eventually finished writing my first Ebook. I also remembered some certification courses online that I heard about in some online webinars and had been mildly interested in but had not gotten around to registering for them yet. So, while considering whether or not I should pay a couple hundred dollars for the online certifications for random things, i decided to get some readings at Learning Light before making the purchase. Hearing other people remind me that I already have my plate full and that I haven’t yet figured how to fit everything into my schedule and Complete my projects, then telling them about how I still have not finished these other online class series that I paid for; all of that helped me realized that I have to let some things go so I don’t overload myself and burn out again.

So I decided to forgo buying another load of classes I may never get around to watching and to just Stop shopping when I feel Lack. Instead, I will look inside myself, and clear the shadow that tells me I need more, speak to it and tell it that everything is ok because I have what I need inside of me. I have skills, analytical capabilities, and intuition that will get me through and help me reach my goals.

After deciding that, I pulled three cards, and these are what came out.

Disconnecting from what no longer serves me, cutting away all the excess and superficial layers that only burden me with their weight, so that I can grow out of the shell which confined me before. And finally be able to plant my feet on solid ground, knowing that I am strong and capable of anything I set my mind to.

Today I opened an email where Marie Forleo shares a talk she gave at SuperSoul Session on Oprah, and in it, she reminds us that everything is figure-out-able


When nothing seems to work out and you feel like a complete failure, remember that all is not lost. You have yourself, your body, mind, heart, and intuition.
You can utilize all these to Make things work out.
Let go of the ego’s urge to be perfectionistic
Let go of the ego’s urge to keep all the things that don’t fit into your schedule, and any other trivialities in life
Return to your center, feel and understand what you need. Understand and Know what you need.
Reset your plans and clear up any extraneous subquests that detour away from the final Goal
Set a more Clear path to the go
Asses, Reset, Rest, Reboot, Restart
Grow

Life is a learning experience, we live, we learn, we grow. Even when it feels like we are taking a few steps back, we are still moving forward.
