Today’s Guidance: 11/28/16

nov-28-16

I did not sleep well last night and woke up this morning feeling sad, which is quite uncharacteristic of me. As I went about my morning the feeling of sadness increased until it was bordering on grief. I made several phone calls to those closest to me & everyone was thankfully doing well. I then decided to pull two cards in an attempt to figure out the reason for this sadness that had descended upon me.

I drew “From the Source we have come and it is to the Source we shall one fine day return” and “Love is the key that opens every door.”

I found the first card to be very interesting because I actually did feel like someone close to me had died, so they had returned to the Source. Love is the most powerful healing energy in the universe so I realized in drawing the second card that Love would heal my sadness.

I continued to go about my day remaining perplexed about this feeling of sadness and my card draw for today. Then I went online and read that the character actor Fritz Weaver had died. I then understood the reason behind my sadness as well as this particular reading.

fritz-weaver-11-27-16

Hal Holbrook (l.) & Fritz Weaver (r.), “The Crate” episode from the film, “Creepshow” (1982).

Fritz Weaver was a character actor who was all over the TV and movies of the late 1970’s through the 1980’s. He was a guest on many popular TV series including “Falcon’s Crest” and “Deep Space 9.” He played a role I remember to this day in the mini-series, “Holocaust” as the patriarch of a Jewish family. He is most well-known for his roles in the feature film “Creepshow” and the cult classic, “Reanimator.”

I never realized what a fixture Mr. Weaver had become in my life through his many varied roles in film and television, so to hear of his death I was taken back to many of the shows I saw as I was growing up.

The first card of my reading for today is all about the eventuality we all face of leaving our physical bodies and returning to the Source of All. We each must do this when it is our time to do so and no one can avoid it. Yes, this is a card about death, but it is also a message of reassurance that at the time of physical death we all shall return home where we truly belong. It will be a grand reunion, not the separation most of us fear.

The second card is an important reminder that no matter the problems we encounter in our daily lives, we all need to rest assured that Love is the ultimate power in the universe. Through Love anything can be accomplished. Love truly is the key that opens every door.

When you combine the two cards into a single message it is loud and clear. Although we all must suffer separation from our loved ones at the time of death, in the end we are all eventually reunited as part of the Source; and, the energy that reunites us is our love for one another. Love transcends death.

This is the message from the angels for today.

Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm (GIFAR) opens for pre-orders on December 3rd.

How this Oracle Deck Came to Be

It all started with a voice.

I have channeled Archangel Michael since 1996. One spring morning upon waking I michaelheard his voice. All he said was, “are you ready to get to work now?”

Thinking he meant to ask if I was ready to start my work day, I responded with, “In a bit, Michael. I have to bathe & have breakfast first.”

Michael replied with, “Very well. I shall return briefly.”

An hour or so later Michael was back, but I quickly realized he wasn’t talking about a typical work day. Instead, he began to explain to me a healing system he referred to as another color on the spectrum of Rays. This color is called the Clear Iridescent Energy Ray and he is the specific archangel that governs that ray.

Michael had me lie down on the couch and gave me an attunement to that energy ray. I was knocked for a loop. I was not prepared, but he insisted on passing the attunment on to me right then & there. You do not argue with an archangel. You do as you are told! So I laid on the couch, waited, and then the amount of energy that came in through my crown chakra made me so dizzy that I nearly fell off the couch!

After that, Michael gave me information about this new healing modality in piecemeal form. Information was given to me on a “need-to-know” basis, and when I would ask specific questions I was told quite curtly, “you do not need to know at this time.” Michael gave me the information in the order and in the amount he had decided upon and there was nothing I could to do alter the process.

The Clear Iridescent Energy Ray (CIER) is now an online course & I am planning a book as well. Meanwhile, those channeling sessions lead to Michael presenting me with short phrases that did not have anything to do with the CIER material. He instructed me to write them down in a journal, which I did.

Once Michael gave me a few phrases Archangel Raphael made his presence known. Raphael and I go way back. He is actually the first archangel with whom I had any form of contact. That in and of itself is very interesting so I’ll share it now.

I was around 25 years old & my parents still lived in my childhood home. I was visiting for the Christmas holiday break from graduate school. One night I had a dream.

I dreamed I was standing on the sidewalk in front of my childhood home. There was a storm coming that was moving south to north (my street also ran north-south). As I saw more storm clouds crawling across the sky I could see flashes of lightning. I remember thinking it was odd that I did not hear any thunder.

The storm soon extended along my entire street. At that point I heard what I thought was distant thunder, but as I looked up at the clouds to the south I realized it was not thunder I was hearing, it was the hooves of horses galloping down my street, but the horses were up in the clouds!

4-horsemenAs they got closer I saw one white horse, a black one, a reddish one, brown, and a pale whitish/light gray horse. Jesus Christ rode the white horse. An archangel rode each of the other four horses. I got very frightened thinking that this was the end of the world & I was seeing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

I attempted to run back into my house for safety, but I had caught the eye of the archangel wearing the green robe. I knew that one was Raphael. As he looked down at me he reached out toward me with the palm of his right hand facing me. His arm grew longer & longer until his right hand reached me. He smacked me right in my third eye and in a loud, booming voice that was very frightening, he said to me:

Heal thyself, then go forth and heal others!

The five horsemen continued on down my street moving past my house and eventually out of sight. When I woke up I told my mom about the dream. She said the dream meant I had a spiritual calling. At the time I had no idea what it could be. I was in graduate school studying Archaeology. That was my first clue that I would not end up in archaeology or academia as a career.

Raphael stepped forward again to help me during my studies to become a Reiki master teacher. He was with me every step of the way. He now works with me whenever I channel healing energy. Two days after Michael told me he had given me all the phrases he was going to give “for the time being,” Raphael made his presence known. He then presented me with several additional phrases.

Michael then returned to explain these phrases were to be made into an oracle deck that would help many people. He also told me there was to be a total of 44 cards, but he and Raphael had given me all their phrases. I asked Michael if I was meant to compose the remaining phrases, and he told me no, that a spirit guide would come & present the phrases to me. That is a topic for another time.

The number 44, Michael explained, is significant. The number 4 is the number of the archangels, so 44 magnifies their energy since the 4 is doubled. The number 4 is also the number of stability, groundedness, and inner wisdom.

sample-of-watercolor-background-1Once I received all 44 phrases, Michael returned and sent me visions of particular color combinations. A specific color combination was intended for a specific phrase. He went through the phases in alphabetical order. As I received visions of each phrase’s color scheme I would make notes with a 100+ set of colored pencils so I could get as close to the actual shade of each color I was being shown. When I was done I had 4 pages with each page containing 11 color swatches. I was then ready to start painting the watercolor gouache backgrounds.

As I worked on the watercolor backgrounds I also focused on creating the font that you see on the cards themselves. I created the font by hand through a great deal of trial, error, and experimentation. I had to be sure the letters would fit nicely together, and in the beginning that wasn’t happening. It took quite a few tweaks and changes before I ended up with the final font that I used for the cards. Each phrase is hand-lettered and then I went over the letters with Sakura drawing pens in order to ink them in.

Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm came to be due to a voice and it was the outgrowth of a information given to me by Michael regarding the new healing modality, the Clear Iridescent Energy Ray (CIER). I had no idea at the time that Michael and I were working on the course material that a deck would also come of our partnership. I thought the phrases he was giving me were perhaps meditation prompts.

The cards can be used for meditation, and they can also be used for connecting with your own angels and spirit guides. Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm can also be used as a divinatory oracle deck. I will be providing examples of that particular use in later blog posts.

The archangels are making themselves known to many people at this time. Michael says that humanity is at a critical juncture in its history and the archangels are here to provide guidance, healing, and joy as they help each of us to transition through this period. It is our joint hope that Guidance and Inspiration From the Angelic Realm helps to spread joy, guidance, and healing to all who are in need. It was a great joy for me to create this deck and I hope that joy spreads to all who use it.

Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm will open for pre-order on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Payment & ordering information will be posted on the “Order A Deck” page on that day, so stay tuned. All who pre-order a deck will receive a free reading from me with my new oracle deck!

Introducing My Latest Deck Creation

blog-cover-image

Here is the very first glimpse of my latest deck creation, Guidance and Inspiration From the Angelic Realm. In the background you can see my first deck creation, The Egyptian Lenormand, originally self-published in 2014 and mass-published by Schiffer in 2015.

I began creating Guidance and Inspiration From the Angelic Realm (or GIFAR, for short) in early 2016. I have channeled Archangel Michael since 1996 and he inspired me to create this deck. The initial messages that I channeled for this deck came from him, but soon he was joined by Archangel Raphael.

As they gave me phrases to place on the cards I initially assumed this was to be a book. I wrote each phrase on a 3 x 5″ note card thinking I would take further notes on it for the forthcoming book. It was not until the archangels had given me about a dozen phrases that they began to show me swatches of color for each one. When I asked why they were showing me colors they told me the colors were meant to be the background of particular phrases. The phrases and colors are meant to correspond. I took notes and made color swatches  on those note cards using colored pencils in order to be better prepared to create the final card images.

As I waited to be given more phrases I experimented with various artistic mediums to figure out which one I would use to create the backgrounds. I finally settled upon watercolor gouache, which is basically an opaque watercolor. I painted the backgrounds on 6 x 8″ mixed media paper by Strathmore.

Archangel Michael informed me about halfway through the process that I was to create a font that would require me to hand-letter every card. I originally intended to use the computer to type in the phrases and then print them out on the watercolor backgrounds, but he insisted that the font must be handwritten. He said it was important that I channel universal energy down through my crown chakra and out through my hands as I hand wrote each phrase. It took me several weeks to create and then to tweak the font that now appears on the cards.

Once I created the font the next stage was to write out the phrases. I wrote most of them out on scratch paper. Next, I used a light box to trace them out onto the watercolor backgrounds in pencil. I then used Sakura pens to ink in the lettering.

I am currently writing the guide that will accompany the deck. I am not sure if it will be a PDF that I send to everyone who orders the deck or if I will go through Amazon or some other service & create a guide for Kindle format, as well as PDF. As with the phrases on the cards, the guide is also channeled. There is a channeled message that accompanies each phrase.

Archangel Michael told me the deck was to have 44 cards. Archangel Raphael joined us about two months into the project so they would take turns coming through to give me new phrases. They told me the card images would be completed sometime during the summer; however, by May the entire project seemingly stalled with over a dozen phrases yet to be received. Then one day another presence with whom I was quite familiar informed me they were here to complete the project.

I am not identifying them here. Suffice it to say if you follow me on Facebook you probably know their identity already. I do reveal their name in the deck itself. This lovely spirit provided me with the remaining phrases that brought the total up to 44, thus completing the deck.

Guidance and Inspiration from the Angelic Realm will be available for pre-order very soon. I already have a sample deck and I really love the way the cards turned out. The printer did a great job. Please follow this blog and keep an eye on it for all future announcements pertaining to the availability of the deck and my progress in channeling the accompanying guide.

I am very excited about this project and look forward to its completion with anticipation. I hope that you do as well.

Blessings,
