1 ~ Water
Water symbolizes purification, regeneration, birth, revival, and cleansing. It signifies a evolutionary shift from former self to new self. Many myths around the world speak of a “great flood” and the new life that is revealed after deluge. Water begins without boundaries. Then, as soon as form has separated itself from water, it comes under the laws of time and life, thus acquiring limitations.
When Water arrives, you’re invited to watch your emotions; know they are going to be changeable, and do not settle on a conclusion at this time. If you feel joy, feel that fully; if you feel sad, allow sadness to move through you. Water invites you to see the ebb and flow of events and trust that you can ride the wave of opportunity when it arises. Natural flow is here. Go with it.
2 ~ Thunder
Legends speak of great Thunder Beings who live in the sky and call for your attention when great occurrences are meant to happen in the world. They warn when tensions in a situation are called upon to be released. Their presence in your reading reminds you of the dramatic moments in life that change everything. Both awesome and frightening when Thunder arrives, it is also a wake-up call, one that you will not soon forget.
Do you feel like unnecessary drama is waylaying your life? Could be exhausted from listening to others tell you their never-ending victim story, or could you be telling yourself a version of the same? It’s time for an about-face; you’re being wanted that to continue on this path will cause you to regret your choices, even if they appear benign or familiar. It’s time to say no to drama, both yours and others. Focus on solutions rather than problems. You are worthy of a drama free life.
3 ~ Flow
There is a natural movement of events in the world. You can see it in phenomena such as the tide, the ebb, and flow of oceans and rivers that rise up from the Earth and then flow to the sea. The symbol of Flow represents the effortless and natural movement toward a certain destination. It signifies an ability to gracefully move around obstacles and reminds you of the sense of allowing.
Don’t try to push against the river or swim upstream right now. You can trust that when the time is right, your dreams will begin to take shape, and you will be invited to dance with destiny. Right now, however, you must relax. This is not the time to bang on doors that refuse to open. Whatever obstacle is in front of you right now, trust this is for the highest good. It is an opportunity to regroup and reconsider your choices, and you must trust that your intentions will take form in good time. Consider this time a gift.
4 ~ The Hunter
Before the dawn of agriculture, we hunted in the forests to feed our kin. The Hunter never takes more than what the village needs to survive, often only taking one creature- the “good kill.” He is a master tracker who knows which path to follow to find success.
Don’t settle for the roadkill; it could be poison. Be careful that you do not become the prey of your desires and fantasies. Remember to not want more than you need, so you are not guided by unbridled ambition. It is okay to come home empty handed.
5 ~ The Eagle
Eagle comes from the east, the place of the rising sun, of new beginnings. She soars high in the sky, sees the smallest detail with clarity without losing track of the bigger picture and beats in the high mountains. For the Eagle, there are no obstacles, only opportunities. She calls you to ascend, to acquire perspective, so you can fly wing to wing with Great Spirit.
Have you been trapped in your daily routine and feel you do not know where to go or what to do next? Have you lost your sense of purpose? Eagle invites you to take a deep breath and spread your wings. When was the last time you opened them? Eagle reminds you that your spirit was born to soar to the heavens. As you contemplate choices, ask yourself: “Do I want to live in a chicken coop, sheltered from life, counting the regular feedings, or do I want to soar like an eagle?” If you’re answer is the latter, then you must accept Eagle’s invitation and embrace the courage that will help you choose freedom.
6 ~ Completion
All things have a begging, a middle, and an end. This is the nature of life- the seed, the flower, and the fruit- and all of human relationships. Completion suggests the fullness of the moment and the need to transform an old form into a new one.
It’s ok to choose your happiness. For far too long you have out your happiness beneath and others above. No more. Your feelings matter. Your happiness matters. A cycle is coming to a completion in your life. Let go of what needs to be released and allow happiness to fill up your life.
7 ~ River ~Movement~
Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along. Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful, and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that will offer you clues about what directions your egoless Self is to be making. “Go with the flow” is more than a trite aphorism here. It is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.
8 ~ Childhood ~ Innocence ~
Innocence is not simply the lack of guilt or shame but a quality in itself, one that you naturally possess when you come into this existence. There are challenges that you have faced throughout life that have further shaped your personality and character. You have also likely encountered moments following a disappointment or loss when you turned sour or cynical, and no doubt have had times when layers of anger or fear blocked the flow of your vitality, your life force. Yet in spite of all this, there is a core of innocence that you can reawaken by releasing any shame that has covered over the truth of who you are. Take any opportunity to heal this shame and let it go so you can revisit that star of purity. Doing so helps you see every moment with fresh eyes and removes the filters that inhibit your light and live from coming forth. You truly are a child of Great Spirit, so allow yourself to be that.
9 ~ Wind ~ Activation ~
The lethargy you feel is the result of lack of activation— in other words, something that stirs your senses. This could be anything from walking outdoors, feeling the breeze on your body, or inhaling the different aromas that Nature herself provides. Or it could be finding the pleasure in a warm bath that helps you release the tension and stress from your mind and body. Music may activate your hearing, which sparks the pleasure centers in your brain. Art may activate your emotional responses. The touch of anymore human may activate a deep need to be physically held in some manner once again. Now so the time for action. Engage in some activity and be fully present so that you forget about your surroundings and enter into that timeless multidimensional experience of union with the focus of your creative attention. Let your physical body be active. Movement alone— whether quietly dancing by yourself or hiking up that hill over yonder— will require you to be as present as possible in your body.
10 ~ Ancestors ~ Generations ~
You have within you the blood of your ancestors. You are deeply connected to your linage, the most immediate proof of that being the physical resemblance you have to your mother and father and perhaps even grandparents. Yet beyond that, although unknown to your usual senses , you are connected to an ancestry that reaches back through the millennia. This is the time to call upon those ancestors, those who are of your bloodline as well those ancient ones that have walked the land that you now walk. In many indigenous cultures, it is believed that the essence of your ancestors inhabits many of the physical aspects of the land. In other words, they are in the trees, the water, the air, the animals, the stones— their blood being in the very dirt and sand you tread upon, next time you are outside, allow your senses to open to those ancestors who abide in the physical world. And anytime at all, allow your heart to open to those Spirits to whom you are related though your heredity and to those shine you are connected by virtue of the land upon which you live.
11 ~ Fairies ~Earth Magic~
You have the same power available to you as the fairies do. It starts with loving the Earth through tough heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, but more important, through your actions. The fairies can help you reconnect in a more intimate way with the Earth, and all they require is your willingness to pay attention to the trees and plant life around you and demonstrate your care. Whether you live in a small space or have an expanse of land, make it a point to be especially attentive to your surrounding vegetation. Plant something. Get your hands in the dirt and do so with love and enthusiasm. Every flower, tree, or shrub you are attending is a living being, so treat each like you would a dear friend. Ask the fairies to help you take care of these friends, and you will be rewarded many times over.
12 ~ Clairsentience
Archangel Raguel: “Notice your recurring physical and emotional feelings, as they signify Divine guidance.”
Please honor your feelings. Don’t be afraid of deep emotions or intense feelings. Raguel can help you distinguish between your own feelings and those of others. Raguel will also help you clear any energies you may absorb. This Archangel will guide you toward people, situations, and places with clear and living energy. Your repetitive emotions and physical feelings provide important information, so please notice and follow these feelings. They’re answers to your prayers. Ask Raguel to help translate confusing messages so that you’ll clearly know which steps to take.
Working with this Angel: like an air-traffic controller, Raguel oversees archangels and angels, ensuring harmony, cooperation, and order among them all. In this same way, he’ll help you sort all your feelings, enabling you to notice, understand , and follow them.
13 ~ Sensitivity
Archangel Handel: “You’re extra-sensitive to energies and emotions right now. Honor yourself and your feelings.”
Sensitivity is a beautiful and powerful gift, and there’s no such thing as being ‘too sensitive.’ Your sensitivity helps you know the truth about situations and people, and it’s important for you to trust and follow these hunched, intuitions, and impressions. Spend some time alone in nature to further develop your sensitivity. Avoid harsh situations and chemicals. At home or at work, ask Haniel to help you choose Life-affirming foods, beverages, companions, and activities. Know that it’s safe for you to feel deep emotions, they’re apart of your sensitivity. Visualize the two of you sealed in beautiful bluish-white light. This white light dissolves any lower energies, transmuting them into love. The light also helps you distinguish between your own feelings and those of other people.
Working with Archangel Haniel: Haniel helps us honor our natural cycles, moods, and rhythms. She assists us in embracing all aspects of ourselves, including our strengths, setbacks, and shadows. Call upon her if you ever feel unsure, or bad about yourself. Haniel will help you appreciate yourself and see how beautiful you are right now.
14 ~ Gentleness
Archangel Sandalphon: “Be very gentle with yourself at this time. Surround yourself with gentle people, situations, and environments.”
Sanddalphon wishes to help you fr peaceful and centered, and he strongly advises that you begin by listening to gentle music. Play it wherever you go. Talk quietly, and engage in slow, rhythmic movements such as swaying to music or a gentle yoga session. Don’t engage in battles at this time. Instead, retreat from conflict while you revive your spirit and become even stronger. Delay decision making at this time. You’ll know exactly what to do when you emerge from your gentle retreat.
Working with Archangel Sandalphon: Sandalphon’a aura is a calming and cool shade or turquoise, like the translucent tropical ocean. Meditate upon this color, or hold the stone associated with this energy— turquoise— and feel your heart rate and breathing become quiter. Sandalphon can help your words and actions to be kind and gentle, yet powerful. As the archangel associated with music, you can feel his presence strongly when you listen to music, sing, or play a musical instrument.
15 ~ Gifts From God
Archangel Sandalphon: “We angels bring you gifts from your Creator. Open your arms to receive.”
Heaven is expansive and ever-increasing. One of the ways in which Heaven expands is through giving and sending love continuously. This love is sent your way in many forms, and your only task is to be willing to receive. Right now, the answers to your prayers await your willing receptivity. Open your arms to these gifts! Your Creator wills you to be happy, healthy, secure, and that all your needs will be provided. Release any fears of receiving to Sandalphon.
Working with Archangel Sandalphon: One off Sandalpho’s principal roles is to deliver and answer our prayers. Sandalphon says that every prayer is heard and answered (although the answer may come in a different form than we expect). All prayers are of equal importance in Heaven, and there are plenty of angels to help everyone on Earth. Call upon Sandalphon when you need help in allowing yourself to receive.
