Daily Divination Cards - Monday 18th November 2013

Good morning!

I'm back!

I am so sorry that I have neglected my blog lately but I have had a lot of stuff going on in my life and I couldn't cope with it all and my blog aswell. I wasn't really in the right frame of mind to do the cards either.

It's very easy to caught in a downward spiral of negativity - and negative thinking does seem to attract more and more negative experiences.

What we think we attract!

It's not easy to pull yourself out either, however, I have been reminded by several lovely people - and through messages from Spirit - that I need switch my thinking - banish negative thoughts and adopt and attitude of gratitude! I need to get myself back on my spiritual path!

A special thanks to my Mum - who is my best friend, my constant cheerleader and without whose unfailing, unconditional love and support I don't know where I'd be...

And to Kim, for giving me the kick up the butt I needed to sort my head out and remind me what I'm here to do!

I shall start by sharing this, something that I put on Facebook last night.

(If you're not on Facebook, there's a thing going around where you list 7 things people don't know about you!)

Here are 7 things you may not know about me - although I'm pretty much an open book, so you may actually know some of these things about me already!

In no particular order..

1. I am 53, a very proud mother of 4 wonderful children - I had one of each - an earth sign, air sign, fire sign and water sign! (3 beautiful daughters, Aimee, Lucy and Katie, and a very handsome son, Tom, born in 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1987 respectively!) and I am a grandmother to an adorable grandaughter, Gabriella, who was born on Valentine's Day 2010

2. When I was young I wanted to be a fashion designer, but my career's teacher dismissed my fashion designer ambitions as ridiculous and unobtainable - and got me a hairdressing apprenticeship instead. I was a hairdresser for about 7 years, until I had my children. My favourite, most enjoyable job ever (as an employee rather than self-employed) was in the Box Office of our local Multiplex Cinema. I loved chatting with the regular cinema-goers - had a great laugh with the rest of the staff - and got to see all the movies too! I really enjoyed dressing as a witch when Harry Potter was on - and the customers all said it suited me being a witch... funny that ;)

3. I have had 2 shops. In the late 1980s I had a Baby Shop called Bubbys. In 2000 I had a little 'new age' shop called Elestrial's Dream. I really miss having a 'proper' shop. I am a shopkeeper at heart! I miss the interaction with customers... Maybe one day I will have another one and it will be a case of "third time lucky" :)

4. I lived in France for 7 years! My children grew up there and one of them still lives there now. We had some good times - and I had some very interesting adventures and experiences, which I wrote about at the time... However, I grew increasingly homesick for England and we all went through some very tough times, emotionally, before I moved back here in 2000, ending a 20 year marriage...

5. When I lived in France I produced a newsletter called "In*Sync", which later became an Ezine, after I got on the Internet in 1998! It was a little publication for helping to teach and share experiences about "stuff" - all kinds of spiritual, mystical and magical stuff - and covered lots of subjects which included things like crystals and gemlore, dreams, aromatherapy, coincidences, the tarot, runes, astrology, etc. I wrote some of the articles and shared my weird and wonderful experiences, and I had some amazing friends who would write and share their knowledge too. I had to give it up a couple of years after I moved back to England because of the difficult circumstances I was going through at the time. There are still some of the articles online and I share them from time to time :)

6. I am NOT Wiccan! If I have to give myself a label I would say I'm an Eclectic Pagan/Lightworker! I am a spiritual person, not religious, I like to do things my own way and I don't like being told what to do, what to think, or how to act. I am a Reiki Master, but prefer to channel healing my own way. (I became disenchanted with Reiki after it became so commercialized, with people being attuned as Reiki Masters - purely to enable them to attune others for money! A lot of people got very greedy - and where was the healing?!) I have always been drawn to Witchy things and love working with crystals, using tarot and divination tools and doing candle magick, etc.

7. I absolutely LOVE Christmas! For me, the 'reason for the season' is to be with family and loved ones.... and it's all about the Magic! Childrens' faces :) Santa and the elves, Christmas Trees, Fairy Lights and sparkles, heart-warming Christmas Movies, funny Christmas Cartoons, and sentimental Christmas songs... Not to mention the delicious food, chocolate and Baileys! I have a Christmas website - - and a Christmas FB page too! Krimbles Christmas Store :)

Right! It is Manic Monday and I have lots of emails an orders to go through, so let's get on with the cards and messages for Monday!

I am using the The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards by Sonia Choquette this week.

As usual - my card and message is spot on - just what I needed to hear!

Whatever your star sign - I hope your message is relevant and helpful too?

Have a great day :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the  
The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards
by Sonia Choquette

Quoted from the pack: "These Oracle cards provide immediate access to your divine Spirit, where you receive specific guidance for any and all challenges facing you in life. Each card not only offers direction for particular proplems, it also reinforces the path to your Higher Self, freeing you from the turbulence and fear of the ego plane.

You can use this deck (and the accompanying guide book) for specific direction, meditation, and life and purpose readings and to offer guidance to others; as well as to connect to your Divine Self, where drama and stress give way to joy and inner peace.

My personal card for today:

Invest in Your Spirit 

Full meaning:

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.

Don’t hesitate to invest in what’s most important to your Spirit now. It may be the investment of time to pray or meditate, in books to discover more about your Spirit, or in a class or seminar to learn from a teacher. It ay be investment of community in order to congregate with others seeking higher vibration as well. Whatever type of resource is called for, see its value and know that, in accordance with Divine Law, you get what you give.

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.

Today's cards for each of the star signs:
Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!

Here 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...

Let Go and Flow 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LET GO AND FLOW - Your ego is resisting some aspect of life, trying to halt, slow, or control its formidable force. Doing so is like trying to stop the ocean: It’s exhausting and silly because it can’t succeed. Your Spirit, on the other hand, embraces life head-on and rides the ups and downs, the ebb and flow, and the shifts and changes of life with determination and courage. Breathe in, dive in, and embrace all that faces you now. Your ego may be fearful and try to stop change, but your Spirit is ready and able to gracefully handle all that’s coming toward you. Trust this, and embrace the changes at hand.

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.

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. 

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.


Quick message:

The answer is simple: CREATE - Right now it’s time to summon your creative Spirit and put it to work. Look beyond current circumstances and use the power within to create new ones. There’s more to your world than the present is offering, and your Spirit is eager to fashion something different. You’re stuck in a rut, and your ego would have you believe that what you see now is all there is. This isn’t true, and it’s time to break free from the drudgery and boredom that the same-old, same-old offers. Once you decide to get creative, your Spirit will assist in the fun. You have nothing to lose but the boredom and dissatisfaction you’re experiencing now.

Say “Yes!”
Quick message:

The answer is simple: SAY “YES!” - The ego gets fearful and is afraid to commit. It holds back, hesitates, and doesn’t dare be vulnerable. It waits until it’s absolutely sure that it will be safe before it acts. The trouble with this approach is that the ego never feels safe, so it never acts - it only reacts. The Spirit, on the other hand, knows that the minute you hesitate, you miss the moment, because life neverstops, but rather flows - and it’s now inviting you to flow with it. You’re being asked to step into the flow, and you don’t want to miss out. Don’t hesitate - say yes to life and act now.

Say “I’m Sorry” 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: SAY “I’M SORRY” - Let’s face it: Your ego hates to admit that it makes mistakes, and it doesn’t like to say “I’m sorry.” Rather, it conjures up a long list of excuses and explanations for its poor and fearful behaviour. The ego ignores the impact it has on others because it’s too busy defending itself. Your Spirit, on the other hand, doesn’t hesitate to apologize for all the mistakes the ego makes as soon as they become obvious. It knows that we’re all students here to learn, and mistakes are an essential part of the process. Your Spirit also lives in the now and is aware that the best way to be present is both to forgive and ask forgiveness of errors as quickly as possible. Say “I’m sorry.” Keep your prideful ego from preventing this important healing. Every apology calls back more of your light. Apologize now - to others and to yourself.


Be Patient 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: BE PATIENT. The physical Universe vibrates at a slower pace than the mental one does. Therefore, although it may appear that your Spirit’s desire is far away at this very moment, this isn’t actually true; rather it’s in the process of coming into realization. Simply be patient and know that the Universe, in cooperation with your beautiful Spirit, is working on your behalf. Trust in divine order and give things more time.

Drop It 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DROP IT - The ego lives in the past and loves to rehash its suffering over and over again. The Spirit, on the other hand, resides in the present and looks to joyful new possibilities every day. What is your ego dwelling on again, distracting you from the joy of the moment? Where is your attention - on your ego or on your Spirit? Are you focusing on the past or the present What old news of yesterday are you clinging to? Isn’t it time to let it go? This is the day that will change your life for the better, and you’re at great risk of missing out on it - so don’t. Look up: Before the day is over, you’ll receive a beautiful present… if only you’re able to notice what it is.

Talk to God 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TALK TO GOD - Stop talking to your ego. It only confuses you and makes you fearful. Besides its advice is terrible and never brings the results it promises. Converse with God instead. Instruct your ego to be quiet, and allow your Spirit to have a heart-to-heart with your loving Creator. Ask the Divine for direction. Listen with your Spirit, in the very centre of your heart, and don’t permit your ego to interrupt. There you will find the answers.

Take a Breather 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TAKE A BREATHER - Your ego is making you overwork. Remember that it will never be fully satisfied with what you accomplish and will always create the feeling that you must do more. Right now the best way to reconnect with your Spirit is to step back and catch your breath. Although it may feel as though life will fall apart if you do this, that’s not true. You’ll simply disconnect from the false urgencies of the ego and realign with a higher vibration. Once reconnected to your Spirit, you’ll find that there’s always more than enough time to do what’s important. To take a breather is to have faith in the Divine order of life, God is in charge, so you don’t have to work overtime.

Open Your Heart 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: OPEN YOUR HEART - To love yourself and experience all the blessings your Spirit offers, you must have an open heart. You can’t fully experience love of any sort - that of self or otherwise - if it isn’t open. As Divine beings, we’re all born with a welcoming heart: the one that expects life to be a positive experience. It’s especially important right now to open yourself up, because life is trying to deliver you the gift of love. Your Spirit and the Divine Source of all Life knows exactly what your core needs and is more than willing to supply that and so much more - but it can’t succeed if you’re not prepared to receive the blessings it wants to rain on you. Only a willing heart can receive your innermost desire. Take the risk: Feel the love coming in… open your heart and believe.
