I don’t know what to write today…
So for today I am pulling a card from The Enchanted Map Oracle Card deck by Colette Baron-Reid. My intention is for global consciousness to awaken and for the world to embody a peaceful being. This is what we need to know about our place in the process:
(When I shuffled 5 cards fell out! So it seems we are in a progression of things.)
Stuck in the Mud – Up to our knees in dense sticky situations. These make it hard for us to move around and yet with our own strength we are still capable of moving and getting ourself out of the sticky situation. A yellow canary sits upon our back showing us that there is hope and that there are easier ways to travel, like flying ;-). For now the canary (our spirit guides) travel with us, out of our sight but more and more we start to feel their presence and learn their ways as the skies of heaven clear above us.
Deep Freeze – Aspects of ourself have been frozen for quite some time but as I look at this card inverted I see that the ice is starting to thaw and that in fact even though our eyes are still shut our paw is reaching out and feeling the waters. Because of the placement of the card it shows that the direction to go in continuing with our own internal process of thawing our consciousness is to go up. This means go up to God. Meet him from where you currently stand and he will help your process by warming you from the inside out. Perhaps you can even feel this warmth within you now. Take a moment to notice if you are feeling a glowing inner warmth.
Rock Bottom – When you look at this card it appears that there is no way out but that is the wrong perception. It seems we have had the wrong perception for a long time. Rock bottom does not mean you have nowhere to go. Look at the card again. Rock bottom means you have multiple paths to choose from and that you have reached the depths of your decent. Notice that in the card there are four paths to take and all of them lead up and to you.
Field of Dreams – This card is inverted as well. The first thing my attention is drawn to is the moon, similar to the moon in the first card Stuck in the Mud. It is the same crescent shape but in this moon the magic of the moon is present. Even though it appears to be phasing if you take a closer look you can actually see the circular outline of it as a whole. This is the magic of the moon because even though sometimes it appears to be incomplete it is an illusion, the moon is always whole no matter how it looks. The same is true for you. No matter how you may seem you are in truth always whole. And its link to the first card is that even in times when you feel stuck in the mud your completeness is still whole, even if you can’t see it. Intuitively I am also receiving that the sky is representing the mind and that the mental realm is what we are really grounding into right now as a species, the power of the mind to create our reality, such as the Law of Attraction. But notice there are eggs delicately being taken care of by elemental beings. In our ascension or opening to higher mental realms we must not forget who we have partnered with in getting here, the Earth and it’s elements, and elemental beings. What they show me next is that these eggs will crack like seeds. I see roots growing up from them into the green of the Earth from which a more personal and intimate connection grows. This is because part of our opening and evolution is linking with respect and reverence to ourself and also to the Earth. The title of the card is appropriate Field of Dreams because it is still a dream, many are still sleeping. And if it is you that is still in dream land please don’t forget how well you have been taken care of while you slumber. Give thanks and that will help you on your path to waking up to the world that surrounds you and your awareness to it as well as your awareness to yourself.
Coming to Life – This card shows the final culmination of all paths traveled: being stuck with limited mobility; being frozen with no mobility or place to go; hitting rock bottom in where the only place left to go is up; and slumbering in the field of dreams where you are being taken care of with tender care and from where someday you will awake. This card represents awake and I love that it is called Coming to Life as if before this moment we had never really been alive or living. Perhaps we aren’t, at least to our full ability. This card shows us as a beautiful being rising to wholeness, taking a last step out of the brownish sand of all that you have transformed in being stuck, frozen, at rock bottom, and dreaming. There is a delicate lavender ribbon around your foot because it is like a dance, a back and forth sway as you keep your eyes closed and feel into your being. The transformation does not come in one fell swoop but it comes from a rocking back and forth between awake and asleep and paying more and more attention to your internal cues. Notice her eyes are still shut. That is because she does not look outside of herself for answers anymore. She has learned that all of her answers are within her. The ball of light represents her intuition and she holds it now. It is as physical a part of her as is her body that touches it and it is the mark of her own completeness. Notice also the yellow butterfly showing up at the foot of the girl in the image. This is the yellow guardian, like the canary in the first card, only this time it is pushing us through as we rise within ourselves to come alive for the first time as a true spiritual being embodying our self masterfully. Not so much aware and awake in our outward perceptions but most definitely awake in our inner knowing.
Wow, stuff got really deep there.
I want to thank the cards, their creators, and the divine wisdom that has been shared through them and I want to thank God.
These have been my impressions as I look at the cards with the set intention that I laid out before starting. Please take what resonates with you and leave the rest and please feel free to see what speaks to you as well in any of the images and share.
