Spirit Messages: Shifting ~ Up ~ Divinity
Shifting – Our personal and spiritual growth occurs in a series of rhythms and patterns. When we reach a certain level of experience and understanding, life will move into a holding pattern as we master it. Things will fall into a steady, reliable pattern. We come to know what to expect and how things are going to be. And because we humans are creatures of comfort and habit, we usually enjoy hanging out on the plateau where things are familiar and reliable.
This card has come to you today because you are either about to enter into or you are already are in, one of those great shifts. It is a necessary part of your growth and higher learning. You are moving to a new level of consciousness and awareness. In order for this to happen, some of the old ways of life and of being, must fall away to make more room for the new.
You may find yourself changing jobs or careers. Old friends or relationships may drift away as new people enter your life. You may move to a new home or have a sudden change in finances. On an energetic level, your consciousness is opening to the hidden wounds you carry. More than likely you are feeling very far out of your comfort zone, possibly even experiencing situational depression.
This shift is vital and necessary. Remain as calm as you can while the earth shakes under feet. You will find yourself quite pleased with this new consciousness and way of being, once this shift is complete. In the meantime, try to stay open as these changes occur. It may not feel comfortable, but you will come through this as a more evolved and stable person.
Up – Time to life your eyes off the ground and start looking up toward the heavens. Keeping YOU down and trying to be small isn’t doing anyone any favors. This world needs you – the REAL you. Low self-esteem and self-worth is impeding your perception of whom and what you really are. It is also affecting your ability to put yourself out into the world. There is a whole other life, waiting inside you, crying to be lived. The only thing standing in your way is you.
The Universe sees you and knows you as a Divine spark of the All. They are calling you now to begin embracing that aspect of yourself too. Stand up, hold your head up, and begin looking at the ways in which you are dis-empowering yourself. It’s time to start building your own personal sense of value and your own sense of worth. Spirit knows this is not an easy task, which is why they have brought you this message today.
Every time you feel you are not enough, look up to the heavens and know the entire Cosmos is supporting you on this. When you see the sky above you, let that be your reminder that you are more than enough. You are God/Goddess incarnated. And the only one who can give you value and a sense of worth is you.
There is nothing your guides and angels want more than to see you step in to the truth of who you really are. Start looking to the good within you, the value you actually do have, and the difference you really do make. Start to see yourself as the Universe sees you. Human is what you are wearing on the outside. Inside, you are a brilliant Light of Divine Source. Remember who you are.
You are a beautiful, wise, and loving soul who has braved the perils and difficulty of incarnation to be here on Earth and in service to humanity. You uplift the energy and consciousness of others through the work that you do, whether you are aware of it or not. There are billions of souls residing on the planet at this time, yet only a small number of them are to help humanity evolve to its fullest potential – and you are one of those souls. Who you are, is a gift to this world. Even at the best of times it can be difficult to remember this; especially when being human feels so real.
Your connection to Spirit is much stronger than you think. You are a living, breathing, channel of the Divine. It moves through you in all that you do. It flows through the words that you speak, even when you don’t intend it to. In every situation, you are a transmitter of the higher cosmic energies and wisdom.
It is those who have the greatest gifts and most often face the biggest challenges in life. Hold your head up and keep your faith. These challenges are the means to seeing and understanding the strength, wisdom, and compassion you hold within yourself. On a higher level, your soul chose to have a direct experience of the trials you have faced. Through each event, you have become better equipped and skilled, so that you in turn could help others.
You are a very special soul, with an important part to play in the healing and betterment of the people on this planet. You are born to be in service to humanity through the Divine gifts and knowledge you have carried with you into this lifetime. You are here to ignite the Light in others, to realize their own Divinity.
Animal Spirit Guides: Cardinal ~ Flamingo
Cardinal ~ Passion ~ Fire
Kin Essence: Tell your story with pride to attract your tribe
Cardinal birds are known for their territorial nature and elaborate nest construction, which the male and female birds build together to provide a safe and comfortable home for their chicks. Their passionate, musical calls and songs connect us with feelings of peace and joy. During courtship, the males often collect offerings of seed for their females and feed them beak-to-beak.
Male cardinals sport the vibrant plumage of bold red tones, while the females are usually fawn or grey. Their crested heads and mask-like facial markings add to their beauty and almost regal-like stature. Cardinals are monogamous birds who sing their love songs to each other and even perform duets together, demonstrating their love and passion. The males also mark their territories with song, which is a true example of how a seemingly innocent (but beautiful) gift can create huge impact and help us to stand out and hold space for others.
Crimson red is the color of passion, power, confidence, and strength. Therefore, we can draw upon this standout feature and learn that in order to lead a life full of passion, we must draw on our own inner strength, confidence, and sexuality to excite and energize us to move forward by doing the things that really make us feel alive. Cardinals teach us to examine what we really love about our lives, and to then nurture and defend what we hold most dear. It is here we can see what drives us and what is really important to us, thus giving insight into what work we feel called to do in this lifetime.
Flamingo ~ Community ~ Water
Kin Essence: I serve with my love, affection and attention
Flamingos are very social birds, living in colonies with populations that number in the thousands. They congregate to not only feed together and pair up for mating, but also to find safety from predators. Once their babies are just a few weeks old, they coordinate a kind of childcare group so that most of the adults can wander further to feed and provide more food for their growing chicks. Flamingos will travel long distances, migrate to find abundant sources of food, and are usually found in the same areas year after year.
Tradition is important to the flamingo. When courting, they perform synchronized displays (like learnt and rehearsed dances) to attract a mate. Flamingos are born with pale grey feathers, but through the constant consumption of particular beta-carotene rich foods in their diet (namely crustaceans like shrimp, algae and other plants), this pigment is processed into fat and then deposited through to new feather growth, resulting in a full set of pink-toned feathers.
Pink is a color that represents love, compassion, and nurturing, which is at the core of what drives these beautiful birds in life. Through their physical and behavioral attributes, these water birds teach us to connect with our community, ask for help if we need it, and offer the gift of our time and service to the people we love.
I hope that these messages bring you what you need today.
Much love and many blessings,
