Blue Moon August 31st: The Master Maker

In keeping with my morning tradition, I pulled a Wisdom of Avalon Oracle card today: The Merlin. This card emphasizes magick and support in forging dreams into reality. On a Blue Moon (the second full moon of the month) approaching the third third of 2012, a little extra magick seems like a wonderful thing, indeed.

But that’s not all. Apparently, the Faery Realm wanted to share some comments, too, in this case via Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth’s The Faeries’ Oracle deck. I’ve learned not to argue with the fay, since they are most persistent creatures! Here’s what they had to say about the August 31st Blue Moon:

“Card 22 ~ The Master Maker

“Skill, Craftsmanship, Magician, Moral strength, Invention

“The Master Maker is the master of the forge, upon which we create our futures and forge our own souls. He sees the world beyond the otherworld, the world of first causes. Through his magic, he brings them into his own world of Faery. From his world, these concepts trickle down into our own, through dreams and visions picked up by artists and craftsmen everywhere. Be he makes the first, the original. He is the great inventor, and the sign above his door reads: Practical Problems Solved Here.

“He sings as he works, and, as in all faery magic, his song does as much to shape objects as do the blows of his hammer … The master of fire, air, earth, and water, he adds the faery element of moonlight to everything he creates. He would be the first to tell you that superb craftsmanship, however magical, is hard work — joyful and energizing hard work, but always challenging. As the Master Maker reminds us, ‘No job is too small to do beautifully.’

“Bringing ideas into excellently crafted reality can only be done when we, like the Master Maker, are willing to plan meticulously, begin carefully, and persevere through difficulties, learning still more of our craft as we work. Craftsmanship is also a labor of love. We must be willing to tackle difficult challenges and have a determination to surpass previous achievements. …

“We grow more like the Master Maker each time we do the best we can — and then stretch ourselves to do a little better than that.

“… This card speaks of long-lasting achievement, creative problem solving, and confident action. It may suggest cooperation with others, especially form a position of responsibility, or of teaching one’s craft to others. Success comes from practical application of traditional principles, in life and in work.” ~excerpted from The Faeries’ Oracle, one of my favorite decks of all time 🙂

My take? The elementals continue to offer their partnership with humans willing to support the Earth and heal Nature. (I was at 444 words just as I planned to type how Faeries are Earth angels. According to Doreen Virtue “444 — Thousands of angels surround you at this moment, loving and supporting you. You have a very strong and clear connection with the angelic realm, and are an Earth angel yourself. You have nothing to fear — all is well.” Love the synchronicity, but back to messages from the Faery Realm!) They want to help us heal the Earth, which will have side benefits of healing humans and faeries.

We can return to a world of beauty, organic and wild foods, harmonious living with all creatures and the environment, and a deep connection to the Source of all abundance. Full Moons amplify intentions. On this special Blue Moon, take a few moments to remember who you are — a being intimately connected with everyone and everything in the Universe. Empower the dream of a healed planet and healed lives, and then commit to doing your best to support that manifestation into our realm. We have the support of other realms in our endeavors. We can work and play together for the Highest Good of All. When we do this, by beautifying ourselves and our own environment step by dedicated step, we will see that dreamworld made manifest.

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”

AUGUST SPECIALS

Half-Hour Rune Readings for $77

Most people think of Runes as a form of divination, and yes, this is true. But Runes are also building blocks of creation, potent packets of energy and light that can be used to amplify intentions or deepen healing. This half-hour Rune Reading will draw upon my personal study and use of Runes, looking at various Runic, energy healing and manifestation traditions to help you find greater clarity and support for the challenges you face right now. This special can be doubled for the full hour.

The 45-Minute Raph Session is back by popular request. Most local Madison and Milwaukee area clients know I offer private “Raph” (pronounced “Rawf”), aka Archangel Raphael Sessions, but people from further away have been asking if I can do these over the phone as well. Yes, yes, yes! I have worked closely with Archangel Raphael since researching my honors thesis in 1994. Although AA Raphael always advises me in Medical Intuitive and other sessions, I had never thought to try channeling until it happened spontaneously in January 2011.

Raph has an accent, a gentle and wry sense of humor, and strongly healing, loving and supportive presence. Since January 2011, I’ve offered many private channeled sessions as well as public events. As a healer, Raph’s primary intent is to connect with individuals who wish to embrace their own healing and freedom on all levels. As individuals seek, find, love, and move beyond their own blocks and blinders, they free others to do so, too. Raph welcomes questions about your personal life or global issues.

$133 for 45-Minutes, in-person in Madison or by phone. (Yahoo Instant Messenger sessions are not available for channeled sessions.)

August Specials are valid if prepaid by 8/31/2012, but they can be scheduled after this date.

Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)

After yesterday’s scientific videos, today’s selection is more for fun. Flight of the Conchords interviewed school children for ideas about how to write a song to raise money for sick kids. They then combined exact quotes and ideas from the children into this exuberantly goofy song that tugs on your heartstrings and really makes a lot more sense than most of ye olde 3Dality. 😉

David and I have been having so much fun with this song all day that I thought I’d share. Guaranteed to make you smile at least once and have your heart giggling by the end!

Interviews followed by the song:

Jemaine and Bret were asked to write a charity song for Red Nose Day NZ 2012 in aid of CureKids – a charity that funds medical research into life-threatening childhood illnesses.
The lyrics incorporate interviews with school kids that were recorded before they wrote the track.
The song, produced by the legendary Printz Board, was recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand and features numerous New Zealand artists.”

Joe Dispenza: The Three Brains That Allow Us to Go from Thinking to Doing to Being

In keeping with today’s theme of biology and belief, here’s another fabulous video. Thanks to my friend Ingrid for digging up this little gem. Joe Dispenza talks about how synapses wire and rewire as we learn, then apply, then become new skills, thoughts and beliefs. He mentions creating a holographic brain, which is exactly what I encourage and help other brain injury survivors to do for themselves. You don’t need your own brain injury to benefit from watching this video, though. What Joe shares applies to all of us in our everyday lives as well as in the radical evolution birthing in and through the potent 2012 portal.

You Can Heal Yourself: The Biology of Belief

Thanks, Caro!

Dr. Wayne Dyer & Dr. Bruce Lipton offer a fascinating and empowering discussion of the Biology of Belief and how perception alters environment and biology. Metaphysicians have long known this, but now science supports the claim: you can heal yourself.

“Your body has these reserve cells and … they will repair or replace anything that your attention is focused on. … You’re not limited by your genes. You’re limited, if anything, by your perception and your belief about the world that you live in because that’s the information that’s going in and affecting the genes.” ~Bruce Lipton

A Fork in the Road

“There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.” ~Gilbert K. Chesterton

“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.” ~Lin Yutang

“Not all who wander are lost.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien

Where are you wandering? Which path do you choose?

“If you overesteem great men,
people become powerless.
If you overvalue possessions,
people begin to steal.

“The Master leads
by emptying people’s minds
and filling their cores,
by weakening their ambition
and toughening their resolve.
He helps people lose everything
they know, everything they desire,
and creates confusion
in those who think that they know.

“Practice not-doing,
and everything will fall into place.” ~Tao Te Ching

Oracle Report ~ Saturday August 25 – Sunday August 26 2012

Mists of Avalon? I had to post this one. It’s particularly timely after some Glastonbury Tor synchronicities yesterday with a client and later with Angels of Atlantis cards. Thanks to Gillian for the link.

Oracle Report | First Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Sagittarius

This weekend’s energy is like walking through the mists of Avalon. There is a predominance of mutable and watery astrological energy, which heightens intuition and creativity, as well as strengthening links with the spirit realm. It is wonderfully calming if you are one who goes with the flow, but if you are trying to structure or control things, it will cause emotional difficulties.

The best bet is to be on a mental vacation this weekend because the energy favors escapism. Be careful of overindulging in anything (especially alcohol) because it is easy to get lost.

This weekend’s energy is highly emotional. Feelings will run the gamut and can spill out like water. But as we span the emotional spectrum, the spectrum of the colors of the rainbow are forming. The planet is using this energy to reform and correct things (situations in our lives). Last month was the Turning Point and this month is The Reformation.

We are witnessing a great master painting her masterpiece. The keyword is “painting” – as a verb, meaning that it is in process. It can be unsettling when we want things settled. But we want the best possible outcome so we must float along while it’s happening. Resistance is futile this weekend, so continue to let go and let Gaia and don’t force anything.
