Posts Tagged ‘Oracle of Shadows & Light’

That is the way it is sometimes. After some getting things done from the morning with getting young one and her friend off to school, I started with some other necessary things. One of those necessities was to take care of the dishes, and the second was sorting up the laundry for this days exercise rounds to and from the laundry. No, it’s not fun, but it is neccessary and feels pretty good knowing that we have clean clothes and sheats taken care of and we can spend our energy on other things, like Walpurgisnacht or Valborgsmässoafton as we call it, others know it as Beltane. But that wasn’t what I would write about today.

It was after I hade dealt with dishes and finally sorted the laundry and thinking that now I’m going to pull some cards from the Oracle of Shadows & Light again, it was a while since. So I’m focusing, as I think I am, on what will be important or interesting to have in mind or actions today. Up comes two cards that I, sort of anyway, don’t feel there is something odd with, but at the same time this doesn’t fit really. What is this about heartache and other things about the way of the heart, and healing? Sure, there is a thing or two that could need some healing here and there, but not in the way that these two cards are talking about, so why and how do they belong together? Well, decided to put them down, the answer might come later, and if it isn’t I can make a note of it and see if there is an explanation for it further ahead. But then there is a phone call from a friend I spoke with the day before, and now the cards made sense! Apparently I had, without being aware of it, been thinking about her and her situation somewhere in the back of my mind while I shuffled the cards and these answers were for her!

This situation, where the cards are actually for someone else, I’ve been running into before and I know I’m not alone with this “phenomenon”. Sometimes there has been others who do card readings of different sorts, or runes, pendulums or other things in that way. You can sometimes feel it is as if the question asked and the cards laid down for someone else actually answers something in your own life or situation you might be in., even if the spread was for someone else, just as it was now with the other way around and the cards wasn’t for me but for one of my best friends. Whatever you believe in or not, angels, guides, higher powers, Universe, you name it. Someone wanted this message to get to a specific person, and it did this time and hopefully it helped her on her way. Other times it’s not as easy to find the “recipient” , as one time several years ago when I used a pendulum and tried to answer some questions from a friend. In the middle of it all I “hear” a voice in my head, and the pendulum is also spelling it out on a letter chart, a younger male American is what I perceive, saying “Tell mum I’m ok”. Soooo, who are you, who are your mum and where on Earth does she live?! At times like that you can’t do very much, just hope that the message finally will reach the right person in some way, through someone who hopefully is a lot closer to where they are. But today that message reached its destination as I said, even if the cards wasn’t right for me.

So, another post about those oracle cards. Getting tired of me yet? Hopefully not, I think that these cards actually give me some inspiration to write and also finding things relating to what is said in the cards for the day. As in todays headline, stand your ground.

First I can say that my mum is back on her feet again, “standing (on) her ground”, fractured femur but not a bad break. Keeping my thoughts to one of my cousins that slipped on a patch of ice and broke her right arm, and of course she is right handed… But there are lots of friends and family to help her out so I know she will do fine.

Snow Angel

Oracle of Shadows & Light

Ok, the cards then. Today was a return from a previous day, the Snow Angel. She is often here to tell us about signs in different ways. And those said signs are already there, and might have been for some time, just that we haven’t noticed. That we have been blind or oblivious to them, still asking for them, but not seeing them. She’s somewhat upset and annoyed at us. We can release her from the present assignment by looking around us for those signs, they might be small, but maybe they are so close and so obvious that we don’t see them as that sign we so eagerly want to have? When we read in the little book that comes with the cards there is a paragraph for each where the fairy or angel is speaking directly to us and this is what the Snow Angel starts out with, “Hmph! There. If you miss that sign, I really don’t know what will convince you! Maybe I should just stand here a while, and wait until you notice me, point to the sign, flap my wings, and then you’ll believe that it really is a sign!” Yeah, she seems a little peeved, doesn’t she (said with a smile and a wink). Apparently I have not seen or acknowledged those signs she’s been sending me, and probably humanity at large at several times. We humans have a way of ignoring and believing that they will be some fireworks and flinfing of sparkly confetti or something like that so we’ll know what it is all about.

Oracle of Shadows & Light

The signs I’ve been neglecting this time is in the form of Fairy of the Highlands, a sweet and peaceful creature telling me, or us, it is time to be brave. She’s no fighter, it’s not in her nature, and she wants to solve disputes peacefully, but will fight if that is what is needed. It is time for us to stand up to ourselves, even if we don’t like to be in conflicts with others and letting them take advantage of us. It is time to take a stand, tell the truth and not back down even if there is a conflict looming. But as it says, should we always let everyone else take advantage of us, of all the work we might have put into something, just so they can take it and claim our work? We are not talking about petty things here, like who had that toy first, or who should be first in picking what movie to see. Well, it could be if we are always the one backing down to others, then it might be time to say “I had it” or “We watch this movie first”. As it says in the book, that we shouldn’t let sorrow and guilt make us neglect self-protection.

I can sort of relate to these cards, I’m pretty peaceful myself, and probably back down a little too often. So I guess for me it’s about time to grab that sword and head into it when it is needed. Conflict or not. I might as well start today with some things, even if it’s standing up for myself against myself in some parts. It is good to stand our ground in some things, but we have to pick our times and fights too, it might not always be appropriate to do it all the time and in all situations. Sometimes it might be just as well to let it go, leave it and let others go about their own problems. I’ve heard some friends having issues and while I still listen, can make some connections to my own experiences and knowledge, I can’t fight their fights or help out with their problems. This can sometimes be a time for standing your ground too actually, to actively choose not to take a stand in someone elses problems. I’m their friend, but I can’t do much about their problems beside listening. And that is probably what most people need at times, someone who listens so they can vent a little, and perhaps during that find a solution to the problem. Now to find out what will happen with the rest of this day.

I know, I could write about something else, but actually I don’t know what right now. There was some days here when I just pulled cards and didn’t write anything, but that has to do with family issues really. My mum tripped over a chair and broke her hip again, so me and brother have been trying to help her out with necessary things in her home and things she can’t do on her own otherwise. Hopefully she’ll be back on her feet soon again. Something positive is that at least it’s spring and there won’t be a lot of ice and snow to keep her inside while she’s healing again.

So, Oracle of Shadow & Light again then. As I’ve said, I’ve pulled cards daily, except for that day when mum took the fall… Me and daughter was visiting some friends so when she called we weren’t prepared for something like this. The one thing that popped into my head after her phone call was, I didn’t pull any cards today, wonder what those would have been? Talk about being a total nerd sometimes, but it’s true, and it still nags in my mind that it would have been interesting to see what I would have seen or interpreted it as. If I would have seen any issues either in the oracle or in the tarot, but I’ll never know and maybe that is just as well. I don’t like walking around being worried about things I can’t do anything about anyway, and maybe it wouldn’t be a clear message either so whatever would happen could be just about anything. It was bad enough that year when everything was happening in 2011 and first my dad dies, then my husband and daughter is having open heart surgery. I knew things was going to happen, but I wrote it off as me being scared something would happen to daughter, not something would happen to hubby, and even then I had messages in the cards and even a dream that I still can recall parts of. And they all say, clear as day, that this would happen. Easy to say with all the facts in front of you…

I pulled some interesting cards today too, but I still don’t know what they will turn out to be. Time will tell, but for now I’m off doing some other stuff in the regular world of being a parent… laundry and expecting young one home from school soon. For some reason she want me to meet her so something is up, whatever it is, and I’m not pulling extra cards for it! Not one chance!

I recently made a trade with a friend, different tarot and oracle decks that I have found not useful for me. They have never spoken to me really, and the same problem for my friend. So, said and done, we offered some decks each of us and sent them off to their new homes. One of the decks I picked was this oracle deck, Oracle of Shadows & Light from Lucy Cavendish and art by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. Something made me feel drawn to it, even if the art isn’t usually the kind I go for. My thought was that if I don’t connect with it I’ll just sell it or trade it for something else, but this one is a keeper I think.

Anyway, I decided yesterday that I would pull a card just for a general idea of what the day had in store for me, if there was any special pointers. When I shuffle my decks like that, I have a habit of looking both on the top and bottom card, the top card is somewhat the more obvious things that you can spot fairly quick and the bottom card can be something a little less obvious or hidden. My way of working with the cards so nothing anyone has to adopt and use because its some sort of requirement. The cards I pulled talked about change and a need of cleaning up around me. So my thoughts was along the line that, well, its spring and there are some stuff that I should take care of in the home, but it’s also the pure energetically cleaning that can be required and changes on a personal level so I thought that whatever will happen happens.

And it did happen, just not the way I might have imagined it. Daughter and one of our adult friends came out from her room and told me they had seen some bug in her bed. Small one, but a bug. So, it’s spring and all kinds of little creatures starts to wake up and I asked them to show me, but naturally that little one had run off somewhere. I would have done so too I guess, if a pair of giants had started shaking up my life lol Daughter couldn’t imagine being in her room even if that bug was so small it was practically invisible so I asked her to start shoving her plushies and all down in plastic bags, put them outside, and also remove the sheets and pillows in her bed. Said and done, and then I continued to remove stuff from the floor, got a big box out that’s been taking up lots of space and throwing out papers, collecting games and other things spread about. Done with that it was the cats hate object, the vacuum cleaner, he doesn’t like it at all. When I went back to the cards I had pulled and read the interpretations of them I started laughing, it was clearly a cleansing and it was both physical and energetical. It felt like we had a lot more air and space in her room when I was done, but still dusting and removing more stuff before the spring cleaning in there is finished. I’m looking forward to see what the next daily draw will point out and how accurate it will be. Love these cards and the book that comes with them.
