If you were drawn to Card 1:
Goddess Pele & Lava Stone - "Melt Into Divine Desire" We bring you the empowerment of melting into Divine desire. There is a time and a place on the spiritual path for detachment. The ability to start back and perceive from a neutral perspective can bring great clarity. There is a time for the mind to become clear and peaceful and open to Divine guidance even if that means temporary loss for greater long-term gain. There is also a time to melt into Divine desire to allow your passion to motivate and inspire you to attain great progress on your Divine Life Journey, or less fervent longing could not. Desire doesn't have to be a distraction from your Divine path. It can be a way you discover what has meaning for you and what you feel strongly enough about to never give up on. Desire sometimes gets a bad rap in spiritual circles, or it is celebrated as being something that should be pursued without restraint. The truth that will serve most spiritual aspirants best is somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. Desire need not be a distraction from your original journey nor go to be pursued at any cost, even to your own integrity. Desire on the spiritual path can become a way to know what is going to move and inspire you enough to see you through the challenges that arise when you want to create a contribution to the world. If you long to bring your ideas to life, rather than keep them only as ideas, then desire can become enlivening fuel for the spiritual path, motivating you to act, rather than hesitate. Searching for your true Soul desires helps you find what it is you can believe in more than fear or doubt. Divine desire Is Not So Different to the passing desires of the Mind, except that it is strong enough to motivate you even if the delayed gratification is more than you would always wish. Or the results can be swift but what is required for you to obtain them may not be so outside your comfort zone that for anything else, you wouldn't be willing to go through to the discomfort. The passing desires of the mind will hold your attention for a little while, passing in some days or months, or in an instant, as soon as a shiny or option comes into view. The Divine desire of your soul will be enough to hold you mezmorized for lifetimes. Giving yourself permission to discover and honor your Divine desire is what connects you to Pele, the passionate volcanic goddess, radiant with power. Pele is reaching for you. She will empower you to let your desire move you.
If you selected Card 2:
Angel Raziel & Pietersite - “Storm Wisdom” We bring you the gift of storm wisdom. This is the fierce cleansing nature of divine compassion made manifest in the world. Storm wisdom thrills the spirit, for it understands that so much benefit and liberation will come from the process; yet the mind may quake at the prospect of such little control over how your life events are unfolding for a time. What is happening during an experience of storm wisdom is that anything that has become stagnant or obstructing to your spiritual growth will be uprooted. You may find that the divine storm of transformation powering through your life creates a feeling of upheaval, creative chaos, uncertainty and excitement. You may feel simultaneously liberated and exhilarated, whilst also wondering if everything is going to be ok. You must remember that you will only be asked to give up something in order to receive that which is far more beautiful and supportive of your sacred life journey. You must also remember that the cleansing power of the storm will revitalize you, bring you fresh energy and perspective to take forward in your journey and is a divine blessing which will only bring good into your life. While the mind often wants to hold on and maintain the status quo, fearing change, the soul thrills at the prospect of joy, happiness and fulfillment that growth brings. It is so devoted to the manifestation of divine love in the world that it is willing to go through growing pains to bring the inspiring, vitalizing life of the spirit into the beautiful form of the body. The soul knows that temporary discomfort can bring tremendous gains for the spiritual path, and ultimately far greater joy and pleasure in life for the body too. The mind may need reassurance from the heart that all will be well during times of great change, and the wild blessing of storm wisdom is one such time. Perhaps you have already felt a sense of discontent or restlessness in your body, mind or soul, feeling that a change is needed, even if you aren’t sure what that might best be. Or perhaps you are feeling that your life has finally settled down and you are quite happy for it to remain as it is for years to come! No matter whether you are in the midst of the storm of change already, just recovering from it, or waiting for it to move it’s cleansing grace through your life, know this - storm wisdom is love in action. It is not going to harm you and you do not need to fear it. It is going to cleanse you on all levels and allow for more life, vitality, purpose and passion to enter into your world. You will love the outcome that eventually manifests for you as the blessing takes shape. But you will need to reassure yourself that even amongst great change - whether that be something more internal, or shows up as big external changes in your life - it is safe to trust life. Be the lover of life who boldly receives love’s grace now. Let change be a welcome gift of love’s eternal grace, for that is what it is in truth.
If you chose Card 3:
Angel Lahabiel & Black Tourmaline - "Purification" We bring you the gift of purification. This is your chance to let go of what you no longer wish to hold. It might be a toxic burden within your body, mind or emotions you wish to be freed from so you can feel lighter, happier and more energized to attend to the things that matter most. We come to you at a time when you have become overloaded with energies, thoughts or even perhaps physical toxins or possessions inhibiting your capacity for joy and vibrancy. If there is any Fair within at the prospect of releasing something from your life, be reassured. This cleansing is a loving grace that will help you feel happier. We are not here to take anything from you, but rather to free you from what you no longer wish to hold on to. The more you are willing to allow us to assist in this process, the better and clearer you shall feel. Insights into your relationships, choices in life and issues that may have confused you will become very clear. You will become more aware of your truths and feel empowered to live life on your own terms. There's only benefit to gain here and our blessing come straight from the loving heart of the Divine to assist you. When purification is offered, you need to release something that isn't serving you. It could be anything from a relationship to a belief system, if it's a go toxin that has become stuck in your body or an emotional block preventing you from taking the next step on your life path. It may even be physical possessions that don't mean as much to you as they once did that could be given away to help another instead. This creates space for you to receive what is meaningful instead. If you think you might have been picking up the thoughts, feelings, energies, or moods of others, this. Brings you confirmation that this has been taking place, having a negative effect on you, and is now going to be rectified through divine intervention. If you have been thinking of doing any sort of spring cleaning of mind or home, then this oracle brings you confirmation. Sometimes you can become so used to carrying something that it starts to feel natural to do so. It isn't until you no longer have that burden that you realize exactly how much easier your life is without it and how you didn't need to hold on to it at all. Attachment is a powerful force however, and fear can have you reactively holding on to the very thing that is going to drown you, while trying to convince you it is your life raft! Trust someone is happening in your life, including the people, places or things that seem to be slipping from your grasp. The Divine has infinite compassion. You will not be forced , but you will be asked to hand over with the Divine knows is not right for you. You will be delighted at how much better you feel and what is given to you in return for your trusting surrender.
