Free Reading 12/4/16

For today, December 4, 2016, I have drawn 2 cards as I asked the angels & spirit guides what do we all need to focus on now as we all head into the holiday season. This message stands for the entire holiday season, but I will be doing more card draws in coming days.


The two cards from my Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm oracle deck are:

Dance to the Music in your Soul

~ and ~

Gratitude opens your Heart and attracts new Blessings

The original title of my deck during the months I worked on creating it was Angelic Guidance & Inspiration. I thought all the card phrases & messages would be coming from Archangel Michael & Archangel Raphael. They took turns channeling the information to me & I figured it was a safe assumption to make that they would be responsible for all the phrases & channeled information for the deck.

After they gave me approximately two-thirds of the deck the channeling process stalled. Nothing came through for a few weeks. As I worked on creating the card images I wasn’t worried. Michael had told me the deck would have 44 cards so I knew more messages would be forthcoming. I was preoccupied at the time & I figured it was my own preoccupation that had created the block.

As the weeks turned into two months, and then it was suddenly 18 weeks without a single message, then I began to become concerned. One day Michael came through to tell me not to fear. The other messages would be coming and the phrases would all come through in a single channeling session while the messages for each of those cards would come to me piecemeal as the others had. When I asked Michael if I had created a block that had held up the entire creation process he told me no, the issue was not me, but that the other spirit involved is “a bit of a perfectionist” & he was “taking his own sweet time” in delivering the phrases of the remainder of the deck to me.

Until that moment I had no idea a spirit would be involved with the deck. I thought the phrases would be coming from angelic energy only. I asked Michael if he could tell me the identity of the spirit. He said, “yes, the one you would know as David Bowie. He is working with many right now, & shall be for quite some time to come.”

If you follow me on Facebook and even more so if you are a member of my group, Magickal Musings, you will already know of my special connection with David Bowie, which is of a psychic nature that began long before he passed away. I can’t say I was too surprised, but I did tell Michael I thought it was an odd mix and now what to do about the title of my deck? Michael suggested my deck’s title as it now stands.

It was about 2 weeks later, so I was right at the 3 month mark of not having made any progress on the deck when David came through one afternoon in a flurry of messages & images. It took about an hour and I had each phrase for the remainder of the deck with his promise he would be giving me the messages that would accompany each card just as Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael had.

Today’s card draw is the first I have done with the deck that includes a message from David Bowie, hence the lengthy preamble to this blog post. It was never my intention to drop his name. In fact, I have worked hard to keep his involvement in this project on the down-low, so to speak. I actually wish the remaining messages had all come from the angels, but when you channel it’s much more a case of who comes through then who you wish to come through, not that I have anything at all against David Bowie being a long-time fan. All that being said, without further delay, here is today’s message, which applies to the entire holiday season.

Card 1: Dance to the Music in your Soul ~ 

Dance to work through anger. Dance as an expression of joy. Dance as you work out your frustrations. Dance to give form to your sadness. Dance when you greet the day. Dance while embracing the night. Dance through your life. Dance to the music in your soul.

~ David Bowie

The message here is to be sure to express yourself. Whether it is through dancing, singing, art, or simply speaking it will serve us all well to fully express ourselves this holiday season. This time of year we all become preoccupied with preparing for the end of the year holidays. We often feel overwhelmed shopping for gifts, cleaning & decorating the house, and then cooking that massive holiday dinner. The message here is in the middle of all that craziness it would help each of us to take time express what is in our heart, which leads to the next card from Archangel Michael:

Card 2: Gratitude opens your Heart and attracts new Blessings ~ 

The capacity for gratitude knows no limits. The only limits gratitude possesses are the limits you place upon it. Why limit something that is so wonderful & that can easily open so many doors for you? A grateful person knows that no matter how small a thing is for which they are grateful, that the expression of that gratitude will lead to bigger & better things. Why not express gratitude by simply saying, “thank you for …” or “I am grateful for …,” then fill in the blank. As you do this daily you will find yourself expressing gratitude for many things you have long taken for granted. As these seemingly lesser things make it onto your gratitude list you will see new energy entering your life that brings along with it new and wonderful blessings of all kinds. As you express gratitude for seemingly tiny blessings when turn around you will be able to watch as larger blessings make themselves known to you.

Remember this: a grateful heart is a happy heart. 

~ Archangel Michael

A daily gratitude practice is important. Another spirit guide of mine, Nashia, explained this to me several years ago. She suggested to me that I merely list three things a day for which I am grateful. She told me the size or importance of these three things doesn’t matter. The only important thing is that I am expressing gratitude. She told me the more I was grateful, then the more positive things would flow into my life.

I began my daily gratitude practice with very simple lists. I would state I was grateful for sunshine, grateful for coffee (aren’t we all?), grateful for the purr from my cat, and so on. Soon, my lists became much more elaborate. Some days I would list as many as ten different things just because I could. I then realized that in a very short period of time (about a month) it had become increasingly easier for me to express my gratitude. Soon, I also noticed new and wonderful blessings entering my life usually in most unexpected ways.

As we all go about our annual holiday hustle and bustle, take time to express gratitude daily. As you do this, know that in time the door will open and new blessings will enter your life, or perhaps some long standing issues will begin to be somehow resolved. Also, keep in mind what Michael says:

a grateful heart is a happy heart.

Here is an example of how my deck, Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm can be used to address a problem. A good friend of my daughter is being bullied in school. My daughter asked me to ask the angels & spirit guides what her friend should do. Asking for guidance I drew two cards for her friend.


Archangel Raphael has the following message for the card entitled, “Your body is your Temple. Honor it in all ways.” ~

Your body is the temple in which your Soul resides during your current physical incarnation. The Soul comes directly from The Source. It is PART of the Source, a tiny yet incredibly powerful fragment. Your Soul is that divine spark.

The body is the corporeal vessel that your Soul has for a limited amount of time. Your body is your Soul’s HOME. Think on this. What would you do if there was a knock on your door. You open the door and there is your Higher Power standing there asking for admittance. Do you gladly step aside and allow them entry or do you slam the door in their face because your house is in disarray?

Your body is your Soul’s house. It is up to you to keep your Soul’s home in order. You do this by making sure you get enough exercise. Eat a sensible diet. Drink plenty of water. Make sure you are getting enough sleep. Also make time for play.

When all of the above is done in balance your physical body enters a state of harmony that allows it to be the perfect abode for your Soul. Focus on taking care of yourself and once you have found a sense of equilibrium you may wish to attempt to influence those around you to focus on doing the same for themselves.

~ Archangel Raphael

Although this cad is about taking care of your physical body, I see a deeper meaning here. I told my daughter to tell her friend that we all need to be careful what sort of people we associate with because they can become a drain on our energy. This card is an important reminder of the Divine Spark that resides within each of us & that we should value ourselves.

My daughter then told me this girl who is bothering her friend was once a friend to them both, but turned on the other girl over a boy they both liked. Now the other girl picks on my daughter’s friend at every opportunity. I told my daughter to tell her friend to be careful with whom she associates from now on & to always remember a bit of the Divine lives within her & she is too valuable to put up with that sort of treatment & should stand up to the girl.

The second card entitled “In order to receive healing energy receptivity is required” is also channeled from Archangel Raphael. His message for this card reads as follows:

It is customary to pray and to send healing energy to those who are in need of such. You have been taught and shown this is the right thing to do when a person is either ill or is suffering in some manner. Yes, it is only right to pray for others and to send them positive energy, but do you ever consider that they may not yet be ready to receive? 

Many people suffer for a reason. They are either learning a lesson through their suffering and pain or their soul has entered into a contract to live through this type of an experience at this time in their life. They may not be ready to receive positive energy and they may not wish for others to hold them in prayer. 

What is to be done in such a case? 

What you can do for them is to hold the afflicted in your heart and your mind. See them surrounded by white or gold light as you visualize them as being healthy and happy. In this way, when they are ready they shall open the door. Once that door is opened all of the positive energy and love you have held for this person will enter their life. It can only enter their life through a door they open themselves of their own free will. This is the manner in which all healing is accepted when it has been freely given to another. 

~ Archangel Raphael

The meaning here is fairly clear. The bully is a bully because she is wounded in some way. Perhaps she has been abused at home or maybe some other girl stole a former boyfriend away from her so now she is lashing out. Whatever the reason, in this particular case the bully needs to be viewed with some compassion because she is in need of healing, but may not realize it.

Once I explained this to my daughter she admitted to knowing that the girl’s father is an alcoholic and the mother is on medication for depression. She then realized that the girl’s home life has been affecting her behavior at school and this was the true reason she was bullying her friend.

I told my daughter that her friend needs to stand up to the bully and inform her she will not tolerate this type of behavior from her for any reason. I told my daughter she is not required to be friends with the bully, but that perhaps she ought to think of a way for others to step in to lend some type of support to the girl so she doesn’t feel so alone.

The next day when my daughter came home from school she had news about this situation. She had explained to her friend everything I had told my daughter in the reading. Her friend could see the logic behind the approach so when the girl began to make fun of her during lunch that day my daughter’s friend stood up to her and said she did nothing to deserve such behavior. Other students chimed in as well and another student stepped forward to say that perhaps they all ought to examine the reasons as to why this girl decided to bully my daughter’s friend, that perhaps she isn’t a mean person, but it may be a cry for help.

The school counselor was involved at this point and the girl who had been bullying others was taken to the counselor’s office to discuss the matter. Later in the day my daughter heard that the bully had apologized to her friend. We are now hopeful that through the involvement of the school counselor that this girl will receive some help so she no longer feels the need to resort to bullying others.

Sadly, not all bullying situations work out as well as this one has. If you know of someone who is being bullied please do involve the school administration. No child should tolerate such abuse from anyone. Parents, if your child is complaining of being bullied, PLEASE go to the school administration about the matter & demand that they do something about it. Most schools these days take bullying as a very serious offense and they will step in to deal with the matter.
