Daily Divination Cards - Tuesday 19th November 2013

Good morning!

I woke this morning with an Attitude of Gratitude - I hope you did too?

No matter what you're going through in your life, you can always find something to be grateful for :)

After getting such a lovely response to my blog yesterday, I have decided to' recycle' some of my articles from my old In*Sync Ezine, so today I'm sharing some gemlore about Amethyst!

List of Correspondences:

Energy: Receptive
Planetary Rulers: Jupiter, Neptune
Elemental Ruler: Water
Deities: Bacchus, Dionysus, Diana
Birth Stone: Pisces, Sagittarius
Day: Thursday
Tarot:14. Temperance
Rune: Eolh (or Algiz)
Number: 3


Dreams, happiness, overcoming alcoholism, healing, psychism, peace, love, courage, protection against thieves.

Amethyst is a beautiful purple, or violet, quartz . It is a very spiritual stone and is a stone of peace.

When held in your receptive hand ( left hand if you are right handed and right if you are left handed ) an Amethyst's peaceful vibrations aid in soothing, de-stressing and calming - especially helpful after a stress-filled day. Or wear Amethyst next to your skin to keep you calm in stressful situations.

When placed beneath the pillow Amethyst is said to be able to ward off nightmares and insomnia. It aids peaceful sleep and pleasant dreams - which can sometimes be prophetic.

Amethyst inspires the healing of all organs and brings about mental peace and a state of relaxation.

Ancients thought it was a cure for drunkenness, perhaps because its name comes from the Greek word meaning 'not drunken'. Those who wore it thought they could drink as much as they liked without suffering from any ill effects!

It is also said to lose its brightness in the presence of poison and it pales if the wearer is ill.

Amethyst is a powerful amulet for travellers. When worn it protects against thieves, harm, danger and sickness. It gives courage to the wearer.

It is used in meditation, for guidance and help, it brings clear thoughts and a calm mind. Amethyst is also used to increase psychic awareness. Sometimes a piece of Amethyst is kept with Tarot cards, Rune stones or I Ching coins - to heighten their inner energies.

It is worn during divination as it is also a stone of wisdom and helps with the interpretation of the information coming through the psychic mind.

Amethyst is a stone of pure love, it is beautiful as well as spiritual and it has no negative side effects. It is, therefore, a 'must' for anyone's crystal collection!

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:

Turn On the Light 

Full meaning:

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.

Right now you’re being asked to view your circumstances with the illumination of your Spirit. Don’t focus on the shadows, but rather on the light. Ask, “What is right with my life at this moment? What is working? What am I learning? What is in the process of improving?”

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.

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...

Quick message:

The answer is simple: STOP - The ego is running wild with confusion, causing unnecessary stress and leading you in the wrong direction. Presently you’re at risk of overreacting to things and are making poor decisions. You may feel threatened, defensive, or angry or feel the need to try too hard to please others. No matter how this runaway fear is manifesting, it’s time to stop. In spite of appearances you are causing your greatest troubles, and no one else. Doing nothing doesn’t mean nothing is being done. The Universe will right any imbalance as soon as you stop making waves.

Stick With It 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: STICK WITH IT - As you wake up your Spirit and begin to live in the higher frequency of love, the ego becomes confused and wants to resist. This new energy displaces the ego’s power and renders it impotent so it tries to reverse or arrest the changes. Be aware of your ego’s resistance and stay true to your Spirit anyway. Ignore inner ego dialogue that suggests you’re wasting your time, and thus tries to discourage your efforts. Although you may not see instant results, you can feel the change within your cells as you bring more light and love to your being. Stick with your higher intentions and soon you’ll witness the effects in your world.

Accept Love 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: ACCEPT LOVE - As a Divine child of the Universe, your Creator fully loves your Holy Spirit. Moreover, your Spirit is pleasing to God and to those around you. Your ego doubts this truth. It whispers into your ear that you aren’t good enough, smart enough, attractive enough, or accomplished enough to be genuinely loved. This is a lie, which you must fight. Ask your Spirit to shed its brilliant illumination onto these dark and fearful thoughts. Breathe in and accept the light and love your Creator has for you. Let it chase away the shadows of self-doubt and judgement away.

Have Fun
Quick message:

The answer is simple: HAVE FUN - It’s important to keep the inner light of your Spirit shining bright in order to remain uplifted in a dark, negative, ego-based world. The best way to do so is to intentionally surround yourself with things that delight the Spirit in every way. Fuel your inner light with some good old-fashioned fun. Connect with any sounds, scents, tastes, textures, flavours, and friends that amuse your inner child. Step away from drudgery, duty, mindless tasks, and responsibility for one hour - or a day - and do something spontaneous or frivolous. Break from convention and routine, and do something out of the box. The ego disdains frivolity, yet it’s the most direct path to joy. Be frivolous. Lighten up. Have fun. Be silly. It will refuel your light.

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.

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.

Say “I’m Sorry” (2 days in a row!)

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.

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DETOX - The ego accumulates negativity and holds on to it for a long time. It settles into the mind and body as destructive patterns, attitudes, behaviours, habits, and feelings. The more negativity you amass and absorb, the more difficult it is to sense or see the light of your Spirit. It’s time to detox from all of this negativity, to clear the inner light and let it shine once again. Start by cleansing your body. Stop eating heavy foods, sugar, and white flour or using alcohol. Tobacco, and other know toxins for the next few days. These foods and substances tax your system and place a burden on you, dimming the light of your Spirit. It’s also time to eliminate other toxic elements in your life as well. Are your conversations toxic? Are your habits? Is your thinking? How about your associations? If you aren’t sure, ask your Spirit and then feel the vibration of your answer.

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DECORATE - The Spirit is a sensitive light body and is influenced by the environment it finds itself in. Dreary, dark, messy, cluttered, un-clean surroundings send the spirit out the door and invite the goblins and trolls of negativity to move in and camp out in the corners. It’s time to set this right: Open the blinds, clear the decks, paint the walls, change the light bulbs, and decorate the atmosphere where you live. Make your environment a proper home for your Spirit. Your spirit must dwell in a cheerful and festive place, filled with colour and live plants, fresh flowers, clean windows and bright light. Your Spirit is a holy guest in your body and must be treated as royalty. Take the time to create a festive bright atmosphere for your Spirit. Be happy to welcome it home.

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.

Be Courageous 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: BE COURAGEOUS - Your ego is intimidated and wants to run away from the challenge at hand. It will offer any number of arguments to justify its fear and to tell you why you should quit now, none of which are valid. It’s okay to be afraid just as long as you don’t allow your fear to stop you from living the truth of your Spirit. Overcoming it is easier that you think: Simply admit that you’re scared. This emotion is normal. The human condition is always fearful. It’s the Divine part of you, your Spirit, that’s fearless. It’s courageous because it knows that the Universe supports you all the way. Breath is Spirit. When you inhale deeply, it gives way to courage. Summon yours by drawing in your Spirit. You’re protected, so breathe and stay the course.

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.
