This is a repeat card, one that has come up often for me and seems to tie in perfectly with today’s Tarot and my recent thinking patterns.  I also feel inclined to note that I re-took that Chakra Test this morning and learned that my third eye chakra is extremely over-active, as is my throat chakra (communication).  I’ve got a few books here on Chakra healing, cleansing, and balancing – that include physical exercises one can do to get things back in order.  Since exercise and physical health seem to be a theme for me at the moment, it’s probably a good idea to do some quiet meditating and some personal chakra work.

Here’s today’s Fairy Oracle:

Higher Consciousness

Higher Consciousness

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: You are receiving guidance from your true self, your higher consciousness, which is one with Divine universal wisdom. You are listening to love rather than fear.

Description: This card is a validation that your recent feelings, thoughts, dreams, and aspirations are coming from Spirit. You have been asking for Divine guidance, and your higher self has answered your prayers. Your spiritual path has helped you hear this voice because you’ve taken the time to listen. Perhaps you’ve begun a meditation or yoga practice, and this has helped you quiet your mind. Or maybe you’ve put your foot down to the Universe and have adamantly decided to improve your life.

Whichever route you’ve taken is working very well. Now, the fairies ask you to keep having conversations with your higher consciousness. This will involve carving out time away from noise and stress. You may need to take frequent nature walks, join a spiritual support group, or go on a retreat. By quieting your life and your mind, the voice of your higher consciousness becomes increasingly loud and clear. It guides you perfectly through all life areas.

Affirmation: I easily hear and understand the inner voice of Spirit.

Honor and Shame
are the same as fear.
Fortune and disaster
are the same for all.

What is said of honor and shame is this:
Whether absent or present,
they are inseparable from the fear
that they give rise to.

What is said of fortune and disaster is this:
They can befall any person.

By the accident of good fortune
one may rule the world for at ime.
But by virtue of love
one lives forever.

Fear is perhaps our greatest enemy; and what is it but ignorance? Ignorance is the unwillingness to accept the nature of things — it is a forgetfulness or thoughtlessness.

Remember: Be attentive, be watchful; these are the keys to transforming fear. There is no fear as unrelenting as the fear of fear.

Fear leads us to pretend to be who we are not or to act out of false pride. It causes us to live with shame or guilt.

We fear the unknown, but this fear disappears with the acceptance that disaster can happen at anytime to anyone — and so can good fortune. There is no way to avert the one or create the other.

To understand this gives us the insight to allow life, in all its different guises and fortunes, to happen to us. If we don’t fear, we don’t stumble or fall. Fear is put aside by living in simple acceptance. Fear is not an obstacle to the person who pays attention. Fear does not obstruct the wise in their joyful experience of life.
