If you selected Card 1:
Seeing The True You -
Sometimes you believe what others tell us we are, as though the self we see reflected back to us through their eyes is truth. Yet the accuracy of a reflection depends on the clarity of that which is doing the reflecting! If the receiver forms any opinion about what is perceived then what is reflected back to us will, at best, be distorted. It is not necessarily through ill will, it is just the mechanics of the situation. Even the moon reflects the Sun in varying degrees of fullness and clarity.
This Oracle has come to you because you have been putting rather too much faith in the reflections others have of you - to the point that you might not be honoring all that you are, and all that you are becoming, because you believe too little of yourself.
There may be those around you that are able to reflect you more faithfully, and even help you see more of your own greatness and beauty. These are the souls blessed with inner stillness. In the clear waters of their ocean of consciousness, you can come to recognize yourself with clearer perception. However, there are those who have not tended to their own ocean and are unable to be still enough to genuinely receive and reflect your light back to you. There is no judgment here. Each takes the path of self healing that is available and appropriate at any given time. However, to attempt to see the magnificence of a Sun in a very partial moon doesn't make too much sense.
If you are blessed with those in your life who can show you the beauty within you, wonderful. Even though this world will come to you with a task that you are now ready for. You are to begin to develop the art of direct perception. This is the ability to recognize yourself not only in the eyes of others, but from how you feel about yourself, how you experience yourself, and how you observe yourself (with compassion and kindness) from within. This is a step towards a radical empowerment that does not require perfection in order for you to recognize you are lovable and have much to offer. It is empowerment based on the acceptance of all that you are working with your strength, tending to your weaknesses, and being loving encouraging and nurturing of all that you perceive.
As you continue on this journey, you will not only see your human self, but the eternal within you. This is a breathtaking experience that opens you up to the creative energy that flows abundantly through all of life. It is an experience that takes great preparation, because we must be strong within our own self-love and acceptance to be able to hold acceptance for all of life! This Oracle is nudging you into that preparation, for when you have the experience of truly beholding yourself, all judgment, fear, and doubt will fall away, and you will just know yourself to be sacred. Then you will be asked to embrace the deeper journey of sacred rebellion, against judgment and fear, and into passionate creativity and unconditional trust in life.
This Oracle comes with a special message for you. If you are getting confused about who you are and your motives or actions based on what others are saying or how they are responding to you, step back. In your quest to be a responsible person, you may be unintentionally taking on the feelings of others, making their reflections of you more than they are in truth. More often than not reflections and more than the state of the reflector than what is being reflected. Let the external perceptions go. Can you just acknowledge yourself? Do so and be free!
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Shock of the New -
What wild unconventional voice is calling to you? Can you hear it? It is so different and so unusual, it might be hard to decipher - like hearing an unfamiliar language for the first time. It might be hard to discern with great clarity now, but there is an affinity between you and this strangely beautiful newness seeking to manifest.
This oracle says there is a stirring at the deepest level within you. Something new will break through and the process of this birth may be a shock to you. The shock will transform into great joy and a sense of tremendous liberation, but you must bear the strangeness first. The strangeness might be something that rattles your beliefs about yourself and your world, daring you to become more of yourself, more open to where life is leading you and more willing to be the unique sacred art being crafted by the hand of the universal creator.
Nature never shies away from strange beauty. She allows for endless diversity and her sacred works are often peculiar and stunning. You live within her field of creative grace, as a specially created work that also creates! You are being asked to surrender any fear you may have of being seen as exotic, unusual, eccentric or bizarre. You are being asked to make peace with strange beauty and to let it happen through you in creative flow. Perhaps you need to allow your conventional ideas of beauty to become even more inspired and open. Perhaps you can allow your need for the world to behave according to your fixed ideas to fall away. You will receive so much more in its place.
This oracle comes with a special message for you. There are rumblings and stirrings of the creative life force life happening now - deep in the undercurrents of your being. If you are very attuned or sensitive, you may have consciously felt this already - with excitement, discomfort or both. If you have not yet sensed these inner stirrings, they are happening all the same. So be on the lookout for the big shift of new birth, the shock of the new, the unconventional, the strangely beautiful and the disturbing liberation of that which is foreign stepping into your life. This is life creating the stage upon which you will experience greater fulfillment.
Don’t be nervous if the rumble of change turns into a mighty roar that rocks the boats, bursts forth as novel ideas and changes things in a way that is out of your control. This is life happening. Free fall into it. The oracle of The Shock of the New comes to you saying, “The old way is on its way out.” You are being invited, dragged, nurtured and coerced into the new. You can handle it!
This oracle brings you guidance. You are about to encounter something new and different in your life. This is helpful! Don’t reject it, no matter how small or insignificant, or how powerful and life-changing it may seem to be. You are being asked to dispense with your reliance on the past and what have been your tools to navigate life. You have outgrown your old methods. You will have to fly by the seat of your pants, so to speak, as you experiment with new ways to be. Life will show you the way.
If you chose Card 3:
Big Bold Vision -
You were not born to play a small role in life. You have the ability to dream big. Even if you have absolutely no idea about how your visions can come to pass or what all the details may look like, you can access the heart and guts of a vision by tapping into your wildest dreams and surrendering attachment to exactly how it will all work out. The details are up to the creative genius of the universe. You are an active, contributing participant but not the sole player in your life journey.
There is something - a vision or an idea - that is coming to you. You may worry that is too much for you. But don't worry, it is meant to be yours. Although you may have some adjustments to make and some tweaking to do as you let go of your limited thinking, and open up to a fearless acceptance bigger, brighter, more radical, and more potent possibilities of creatively living your light in the world.
A sign you're cracking out of your limited thinking to allow for a big, bold vision to come to you, is that you may feel a little dizzy with the shrinking limitations and expanding possibilities of life. You may wonder if you are allowed to access so much wonder! Remember that in your healing and growing success as you manifest this big vision, you can touch the hearts of others through your presence, your inner work, your art, and your choices. It is a win-win situation! Those that are meant to live big, bold, and visionary lives need to give themselves permission to break the mold and forge newer, more expansive perspectives of what is possible what is permitted and what is of service. It's about letting go and opening up.
Others will benefit from this. Even though it is your vision, it is not just about you.
You are being asked to remember that when something is right for you, endless synchronicities, and support will flow your way at the right time and in the right way. Stay open, receptive, playful, and surrendered.
This Oracle brings you a message. You are about to receive, or be invited to become a part of a grand visionary beginning. It has the makings of something fantastic. No matter how the journey that brings this vision into reality unfolds - and there will be some twists and turns that you don't see - coming it is still helpful for you to be open to it. Trust your heart, be still with your choices, and when the time feels right and truthful, leap!
This card also brings a message for those who would like to further develop their intuitive sight. It is already happening. Trust in what you perceive. Even if it conflicts with what everyone else around you is saying or the surface of things, trust your inner perceptions. They are accurate and will be proven to be so later on. The healing process below will help you with this also.
This card brings a general message of positive energy. Trust that things will be coming up roses for you. Even if everything seems to be in a bit of a shambles now, it's really just the essential mess before a truly spectacular success.
