Creativity is the Stepping Stone to Move Forward

Creativity is the Stepping Stone to Move Forward

Heart Chakra - Healing Art

Heart Chakra – Healing Art

Spirit has come to me with a message – through an Osho Zen Tarot reading.

The message is this:

Creativity is the stepping stone to move forward, in peace, with love.

In the past, there was “No-thing”, there was darkness.  There was “Isolation” because of fear.  The past does not exist right now.  Whatever exists right now, is you.  And we were created as co-creators.  It matters not if you are an artist by profession – you are simply a creator, a creative force.  You manifest what you create, daily.  By your very thoughts, you create.  By your word and feelings, you manifest.
And so “Creativity” must be the base of our foundation right now.  That is the source we must stem from. We must not hide ourselves away in isolation, we must not keep things hidden within us, without expressing ourselves.

Before making any decisions, before taking any action, ask yourself:  Is it Creative?  Does it align with your own peace, your own happiness?  Is this a loving movement? Or do you think there could be more creativity, which is more aligned to your higher self?  Think first.  Pay attention to your feelings, they are your guide.

If your thoughts and actions are not sourced from a creative and loving place, you unconsciously choose the high road – where life unfolds a series of challenges, or lessons – this could be on repeat if you do not pay attention, and change your thoughts or actions.
What lays ahead on this road is “Exhaustion”, and “Clinging to the Past”.  This brings much anxiety, for our bodies are made to be in the present, yet our mind is in the past, which means that our heart and mind are not aligned.  It confuses the soul, and it is exhausting.

If your thoughts and actions are sourced from a creative and loving place within you, you are following your higher “Guidance”.  Your “Morals” will also be aligned and uplifted from following your higher guidance, as these can become clouded if we choose the high road.  Remember to stay centered in the now, and others will become aware of the example you set.

To continue along the Creative, Guided, Moral path, is to bring much reward and untold “Adventure”.  Ahead lay rainbows at your feet, with blooms all around you.  You are supported by the Universe, as Mother Nature supports her fresh blooms

Just remember, Creativity is the source.  Follow that loving creativity within you, and all will flow from there.

 

Many blessings be upon each breath you take ~ Arohanui & Namaste ~

Peaceful Hydrangeas Blooming – Healing Art Canvas Print

Peaceful Hydrangeas Blooming - Healing Art Canvas Print 2014

Peaceful Hydrangeas Blooming – Healing Art Canvas Print

This wonderful photo was taken whilst enjoying the beautiful grounds outdoors, and spying what beauty was ready to be found out there – and what a find!  Much different to the usual ones I see and I fell in love with it.

I just love this photo, its healing hues of vibrant pinks, purples and greens sing to my heart center, and add love to my visions, as I know that it will for you too =)

Pink is a very soothing colour, great for the Heart Chakra, and great for calming strong emotions, similar to rose quartz – and just like rose quartz, pink can be a great colour for babies and expectant mothers, relieving stress and bringing a soft energy into any room.

Purple is a great colour for visions and dreams, your Third Eye Chakra – just like amethyst – and like amethyst, is a soothing colour for headaches, sleep and is great for protection.

Green is another great colour for the Heart Chakra and encourages growth, abundance and is also great for soothing emotions.  This would be a great colour to have in places where you would work on special projects etc.

Random Tarot Card for the Day! Ace of Wands

Shadowscapes Tarot

Shadowscapes Tarot – Artwork by Stephanie Pui-Man Law

This reading was divined with the enchanting scents of Rose, and Frankincense burning softly in the background.  If you would like to connect to this card or reading on a deeper level, please feel free to burn a little of these as you read.  You may find that by doing so, you can open yourself up to receive your own Divine messages as extra guidance.  Feel free to comment below.


Shadowscapes Tarot ~ Ace of Wands

A beautiful harmonic family of foxes gathers around this staff, this Ace of Wands, as it blooms with fire-like creativity illuminating all that surrounds it, in an Autumn sunset hue.  Even the creatures in nature that are all about, are so aligned with this creative energy, that they too seem invisible as they blend with the same light illuminating them.

This card comes as a message to remember your creative light – to do that which you are passionate and curious about – to remember all those things no matter how big or small – that make you happy.  Your light illuminates all those around you – and can spark a glow in other peoples lives too.  This illuminated fire-like creativity has the ability to catch on and spread like wildfire – inspiring many others as it goes.

But if you ever feel times get tough, frustrating, or you find yourself having negative views or feelings at any time – shift the focus of where you shine your light (your attention) and it will ignite better, more inspiring things to uplift and support you, which then rubs off on others around you.  Spend some time in nature, go for a walk, listen to your favourite music, light a candle or a little incense, read a peaceful book – whatever you decide, remember to just take some time for your Self, to come to center, and be present.
Doing things like this is kind of like a re-boot for the system, a good stepping stone for the mind, body, and soul to continue confidently forward – with heart, mind, and soul aligned for your highest good.

Remember to focus your light, your attention, onto things that make you happy!  Get creative, and let your light shine.

 

Many blessings be upon each footstep you take ~ Arohanui and Namaste ~

Dust On The Road

Buddha - photo taken by Carolyn Caine-Caitlin - July 2014

Buddha circa 18th Century – Auckland Museum, New Zealand – 2014

“Do what you have to do resolutely, with all your heart.  The traveler who hesitates only raises dust on the road”.

THE DHAMMAPADA OF GAUTAMA THE BUDDHA.  CA. 500BC

Remember the emphasis on the heart.  Mind can never be one; by its very nature it is many.  And the heart is always one; by its very nature it cannot be many.  You cannot have many hearts, but you can have many minds.  Why?  — because the mind lives in doubt and the heart lives in love.  The mind lives in doubt and the heart lives in trust.  The heart knows how to trust; it is trust that makes it one.  When you trust, suddenly you become centered.

When Buddha says “resolution”, he gives new meaning to our words.  He means out of a resolved heart – not out of willpower but out of a resolved heart.  And remember, he emphasizes the word “heart”, not the mind.  Willpower is part of the mind.  A resolved heart is a heart without problems, a heart which is no longer divided, a heart which has come to a state of stillness, silence.  That’s what he calls a resolved heart.

Do what you have to do resolutely, with all your heart.

Hence the significance of trust.  It does not matter whether your trust is in the right person or not.  It does not matter whether your trust will be exploited or not.  It does not matter whether you will be deceived because of your trust or not.  There is every possibility that you may be deceived – the world is full of deceivers.  What matters is that you trusted.  It is out of your trust that you become integrated, which is far more important than anything else.  It is not a question that first you have to be certain whether the person is worthy of trust or not.  How can you be certain?  And who will inquire?
It will be the mind, and the mind knows only how to doubt.  It will doubt.  It will doubt even a man like Christ or Buddha.  It can’t help itself.

So remember, trust does not mean that first you have to inquire, that first you have to make everything certain, guaranteed, and then you trust.  That is not trust, that is really doubt; because you have no more possibilities to doubt, hence you trust.  If another possibility arises of doubt, you will doubt again.  Trust is in spite of doubts, in spite of what the man is or what the man is going to do.  It is of the heart, it is out of love.

When you trust and love with a resolved heart it brings transformation.  Then you never hesitate.  Hesitation simply keeps you in fragments.  Taking a quantum leap, without any hesitation or in spite of all the hesitations, you become integrated.
Hesitations disappear; you become one.  And to become one is to be liberated – liberated from your own stupid crowd that exists inside of you, liberated from your thoughts and desires and memories, liberated from mind itself.

Shadowscapes Tarot ~ Seven of Wands

This beautiful and passionate crimson mother is in the midst of defending her curious and vulnerable young.  If an enemy approaches, she is quick to protect and defend, holding true to her courage and faith.  She trusts her inner light, and nature to guide her.  She does not give in, she is strong and as flexible as the bamboo.

The Seven of Wands has come to let you know that it is fine to stand up for yourself, your beliefs, and your family and close ones.  Don’t back down when someone feels the need to attack you, hold strong on your defence, knowing you have the faith and the courage to see you through safely and without fear.

Trust your inner guiding light, your higher guidance, to help you stand strong at this time.  You know what is true for you, so never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in if you are challenged.  For what may be true for one, may not be for another.  Remember to be flexible in regards to other people’s opinions and beliefs, but remain strong and true to yourself also.  There are many paths up the mountain!

~ Remember, stay strong and stand up for yourself if you find yourself being challenged.  It’s ok to stand up for what you believe in, and to stand up for those around you!

 

Many blessings be up on each footstep you take ~

Random Oracle Card for the Day! Coming Apart

Enchanted Maps Oracle

Enchanted Maps Oracle ~  Coming Apart

This card has come through to let you know that this time happening right now, is a time of letting go of the old and worn – it’s time to separate and move forward.  Things, events and people come into our lives for different reasons, and different lengths of time.  Now, is a time where something is coming, or has already come to, an end.  It’s a time to break apart and go separate ways, to let go of what no longer serves you, and to move forward with courage, into the future.

Much reward can come from parting ways, or letting go.  It may at first seem painful, or perhaps like something is missing.  However, it is ok to grieve and to acknowledge these kinds of feelings – just remember that the feelings will begin to subside, and that with the end of something, comes the beginning of something new and wonderful.

This could be in relation to people, a job, a current way of thinking, or a situation that has become old – or is no longer serving your highest good.  It could also be that it has simply come to it’s time.

Take this time to be still and reflect.  Nurture yourself and come back to the present.  Try to make some time to re-connect and ground.  This can be done by enjoying a bath with some sea salts, by spending time in nature, around trees (hug one today!), gardening, a bush walk, playing outdoors with animals, or walking along the beach.  Anything that brings you into the Now, and re-connects you with the natural rhythm of life, is being called for.  This will help to move forward into the beautiful unknown, where many opportunities and possibilities are available to you.

Release all cares and worries to your guides, angels, to God/Source, or your Higher Self, and be open to the new possibilities that are always awaiting on the amazing Tree of Life.  For this is the next step now ~  move forward with peace, and with love in your heart.

 

Many blessings be upon each sweet breath you take ~

Intuitive Life Coaching Oracle ~ Authentic Self Expression

Can you hear it?  That whisper from deep within?  That is your beautiful soul whispering to you – it is there always, available to guide you.  When you are in a constant state of stress, anxiety or perhaps fearful, you cannot hear this guiding voice.  This card has come to remind you that you must remember to take some time out for yourself, and listen to the whisper of your soul, listen to what it tells you, to what it needs.

Could it be that you are living your life in accordance with what others expect of you?  With what they think you should do?  Or are you truly aligned with your authentic self, living life the way you wish it?  The prescense of this card is asking you to find a quiet moment to reach a meditative state where you can gently reflect upon the wishes and needs of your soul.  When you can stop and listen for a moment, your soul has the chance to come and let you know the way – to align with your authentic self, your true self – a great guide indeed.

When you walk this earth in a true, authentic and aligned state – you are being genuine to both yourself and others.  You are putting in place every day miracles that do really have the ability to change your life in the most amazing and beneficial ways possible.

Remain true.  Remain your beautiful self, and amazing possibilities filling the Tree of Life are yours to live and experience!

Shadowscapes Tarot ~ Knight of Swords

Riding upon the King of Birds, the Knight of Swords travels swiftly through the heavens with certainty, without fear, and with unbridled determination. With his sword, he cuts away what is no longer needed, and pierces through the storm to soar above the chaos. Emotions have no place for this warrior, lest he becomes lost in the chaos below.

The handsome Knight of Swords comes to let you know that watching your thoughts is of great importance right now. Wherever your thoughts go, energy flows. When you choose to place your focus on things that are potentially upsetting, it can skew your vision and ability to see things clearly. When you can pivot your thoughts and remain focused 100% in the present moment, you have the ability to create greater peace within yourself, lessen emotional attachment to any outcome, and also gain a better perspective.

Keeping your thoughts in check will help to maintain positive emotions, though if you start to feel negative or a bit run down, try to take some time to yourself, nurture yourself a bit more, and give your cares and worries up to the Knight of Swords to cut the worries away. You may also give them up to your own Spirit Guides or Angels – a form of letting go and release.

Just remember, you have the ability to soar toward your dreams, just stay focused!
