Daily Divination Cards - Wednesday 12th December 2012

Good morning!

Well, today it is 12/12/12 - some say it is a day of Spiritual Awakening :)

Just Google "12.12.12" and you will find lots of interesting articles and events going on around the world.

I've been seeing 12:12 for years (as well as the more usual 11:11, 22:22, 5:55, etc) and I don't really know what it means - other than the message in Doreen Virtue's Angel Numbers book, where the message for 12 says:

"Have faith that Spirit is speaking to you thorugh repetitive thoughts, ideas, and insights that guide you to improve something in your life, or in the life of others. Allow your positive affirmations to lead the way."

So I think a good message for today is to keep thinking positive thoughts and watch out for those repetitive ideas and insights being sent your way from Spirit!

Who knows what today will bring, but whatever your star sign - I hope you have a wonderful day :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the

My personal card for today:
Blow Off Some Steam

Full meaning:

The Answer is Simple: BLOW OF SOME STEAM - Whoa! Easy now. Your ego is feeling threatened, so it has moved into “fight or flight,” filling your body with adrenaline, making you ready to come out boxing. When your body is flooded with this hormone, it’s difficult to connect with your Spirit because you’re filled with fear. In this state, you’re likely to make rash decisions, say things you don’t mean, draw conclusions that aren’t accurate, and overreact.

The best way to reconnect with your Spirit and find the correct course of action at this time is to blow off some steam. Go to the gym and punch a bag. Hop in the shower and scream at the top of your lungs. Visit the seashore and yell into the wind.

Tell the Universe how you feel. Grumble to the heavens and let it all out. If this isn’t possible, get a journal and write down your anxieties and frustrations. Spare no detail. Vent until the adrenaline inside is burned up and you begin to calm down.

Make no decisions while you are riled up. Stay off the phone. Refrain from sending emails - no text messages either. Wait until you have clarity before you act. As your fear subsides, your Spirit will emerge. Just be mondful not to vent or lash out at innocent people. Take your frustrations and anger to a neutral place and release them there. Also, be conscious not to hold in your anxiety and stress, denying that it’s there. This too, blocks your Spirit and hurts your body.

Below are your messages and insights for today. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

Start Anew 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: START ANEW - Okay. So things aren’t as great as you’d like, and in fact, life feels like a big mess right now. Not to worry - simply bless your mess and start over. Whatever is going on at the moment, appreciate the fact that you created it… and because you did so, you can “un-create” it as well. Start by accepting that the situation at hand is your creation. Maybe it’s not your intentional one, but it’s yours, nevertheless. Until you acknowledge your power, you can’t use it correctly. Ask yourself =: “How did I get here? What about the present moment isn’t working for me? What about this is familiar and might be a pattern that I keep repeating and now would like to stop?” and the most important question of all: “What does my Spirit want to experience instead?” Simply study your situation and request that your Spirit free you from whatever creation you don’t enjoy - if you ask, it will oblige.

Listen to the Music 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LISTEN TO THE MUSIC - The bridge to heaven is music, and right now your Spirit is calling you to enjoy its benefits. Don’t allow your ego to diminish its benefits. Don't allow your ego to diminish its importance to your Spirit or cut off from its fuel - music not only regenerates your body, it also raises your vibration and fills your heart with joy and enthusiasm. Turn on the music to gain access to your Higher Self and the Divine Plane of inspiration now. Music will calm the moment. As you listen to it, the heavenly forces will work on your behalf to bring about joyful resolution and a peaceful outcome.

Invest in Your Spirit
Quick message:

The answer is simple: INVEST IN YOUR SPIRIT - The ego discourages time and energy spent on developing and strengthening your Spirit, calling it wasteful and impractical. Your Spirit, however, knows that anytime you invest in self-care, it will return to you a thousand fold or more in terms of happiness, peace of mind, and abundance in the outer world. Supply your Spirit with the time, energy, and support it needs in order to be strengthened and grow. There’s no more worthwhile investment right now.

Turn Back 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TURN BACK - Your ego has lead you down a dead-end road. You’re following lines of thought, choosing a path, aligning with others, or are otherwise involved in things that don’t serve or reflect your Spirit in any way. Stop moving in this direction and turn back. Ask yourself, Why am I abandoning me? What am I hoping to get out of ignoring my inner truth? If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll admit that the path you’re on will do you no possible good. Seek the support of your soul family, and pray for the courage to align with your Spirit once again. Be decisive and swift in your choice, and explain it to no one. To follow your Spirit is your Divine right and no one has the power to challenge or interfere with this. Remember your Spirit and turn back now, before you drift away any further.

It’s Not an Emergency 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: IT’S NOT AN EMERGENCY - Although it’s clear that things are in the midst of change, your ego is creating unnecessary drama, causing you to feel threatened and afraid. Regain clarity by stepping away from the situation, calming your emotions and reconnecting to your Spirit. Take no action until you feel calm and peaceful, knowing that you’re fully protected by your Spirit in every way. Even though it feels as though you must act now, this isn’t true. You’re far better off taking the time you need to get re-centred and re-connected to your spirit first. Only then will it serve you to act.

Reclaim Your Art 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: RECLAIM YOUR ART - Every Spirit is an artist, and without art, it has no way to express itself. Let your creative Spirit speak: Write a poem. Paint a picture. Get out the watercolours and make a card. Take a beautiful photo. Play music. Create a gourmet meal or plant a garden. If you’re comfortable in one art form, try another. Get to know your Spirit through your own artistic experimentation. Enjoy your creativity for yourself. Your controlling ego will try to tell you that art is a waste of time and has no value. This suffocates your Spirit and sucks the joy out of your being. Silence the critical ego and hear your Spirit through some form of art today… yes, today.

Take Bite-Size Steps 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TAKE BITE-SIZE STEPS - To live your Spirit, you must make changes in your life, some of which may feel too overwhelming or intimidating to initiate. This is just a ploy on the part of your ego to discourage your Spirit and turn you back to living in fear. Meet the challenge of living your Spirit head-on, but approach it with a plan. Break your changes down into daily, do-able, bite-size tasks. First, write down your goal; then approach it one step at a time. Do only one or two things every day to address your aspiration. We make changes best in modest, bite-size increments. Forget the sweeping transformations - this is much too threatening for the ego to allow. Sneak in small, subtle adjustments every day until you reach the goal. You’ll be there before you know it.

Love Your Body

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LOVE YOUR BODY - Be mindful of how hard it works for you and treat it like your friend. It serves your Spirit and wants to be the best vehicle it can be - you must simply free it from the control of your ego so that it can serve you well. Your ego distrusts the body and tries to shame and control it, or else allows it to be overindulged or under-utilised… all of which makes it sick and weak. Your Spirit, on the other hand, loves and appreciates your physical self as a Divine gift, honoring and caring for it with love. You can’t succeeed in living your Spirit if it doesn’t dwell in your body. For it to do so, you must love and bless your physical self as the home for your Spirit - and then treat it that way.

Turn On the Light 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TURN ON THE LIGHT - Look to your life with the eyes of your Spirit, not your ego. The ego points out your flaws; your Spirit concentrates on your perfection. The ego sees everything as your failure; your Spirit sees it as process and progress. The ego views itself as separate and alone; the Spirit knows itself to be connected to all and an essential part of the whole. The ego see darkness; the Spirit sees light. If you look with the light of your Spirit, you’ll clearly make out that all is well. Your ego can’t see past its own fears, so all appears dark. Your Spirit turns on the light and thus perceives the value of all your experiences - with it on, you can see that it’s all good.

Spread the Light 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: SPREAD THE LIGHT - Your Spirit is powerful and inspirational, and it can even heal those around you. One of the most potent healing acts of Spirit is to witness and acknowledge its light in others. Look around and notice who’s in need of being seen. Notice those whose light of Spirit is dim or at risk of going out, and reignite their fire with your recognition. Tell others that you love their Spirit. Don’t be afraid to speak this out loud. To be seen in the light of your living Spirit is a highly healing experience and one that you can spread. Today you’re called to be the healer. You’ve been called to spread the light all day. Enjoy.

Change the Scenery 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: CHANGE THE SCENERY - Your ego has narrowed your view, and it looks as though you have few options. It’s time to get back to Spirit. Shake things up and free yourself by hanging the scenery. Start by going outside - really going outside and taking a long walk, for example, a hike, or even a trip. There is so much more life for you to enjoy, and your Spirit is calling you back to the banquet. The ego lacks imagination and believes that there’s nothing more than what you see in front of you. A change of scenery will show you that as Spirit, you have unlimited options. Break free - get out, get about, and get a fresh perspective.

Give Yourself the Best 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: GIVE YOURSELF THE BEST - The ego has a tendency to deny you the good things in life; rather, it suggests that you’re not worthy of the best, the beautiful, and the finest - and you shouldn’t expect it. Not only should you have the best in life, you should give it to yourself. Start by offering yourself the best education. Read, and inform yourself with all the wonderful and creative knowledge available to educate your mind. Give yourself the best of friends. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to grow, see you as wonderful, and bring light into your world. Sleep on the best pillow, and wear the best shoes and socks - even the best underwear - you can afford. Respect your body by clothing it in fabrics that reflect the light in your eyes and the brightness of your Spirit. There’s so much glorious finery for your spirit to enjoy. Don’t wait for others to offer it to you. Give yourself the best.
