Powerful messages coming through for all of us.
Stay clear and centered by drinking lots of water, eating clean this week, and taking rest when needed.

Root down and plant those seeds, we gain great Strength when we connect deeply to Mother Earth, and with so much gratitude for her support in releasing. This will help upon the coming weeks and months to maintain a firm foundation and remain firmly planted during any energetic or emotional storms that may arise.
Doing all of these steps should lead you to effortless manifesting your greatest gifts, happiest self, and fulfillment of your highest self. Trust in yourself and in Divine Creator above.
Crystal Infused Blessings to you all. Make it a great week!
1. Rain – Purification –
No matter whether is is a light shower or a deluge, rain cleanses and purifies. The moisture that has evaporated from the various bodies of water on the planet and was drawn into the atmosphere now returns to Earth as liquid precipitation in Natures’ vast and comprehensive water-recycling program. Depending on when and where the rain falls, it can come as a welcome relief or a nuisance.
Even the air smells fresh after a good rain. It also brings in clean water, which provides needed sustenance for the plants, animals, and humans. At its most intense, rainstorms arrive as an avalanche of water, often accompanied by great and powerful winds, with considerable flooding and destruction as an unfortunate consequence of Nature’s impersonal balancing act. What is purged makes way for new life to appear.
Purifying your mind, body, and spirit is the task that is put before you. Purify your mind by identifying a prominent belief you carry about yourself that inhibits you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100 percent of the time. Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love even more deeply.
Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears become miniature baptisms that help heal the wounds in your soul. If necessary, detoxify your body (the temple and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse for a few days, or simply drinking more water. increasing the daily amount of water you drink with deep appreciation for its purpose will revitalize your spirit.
It is no wonder that in some indigenous languages, water is called “lifeblood,” as it is so essential to every form of Life on Earth. Take some time to purify yourself.
2. Wolf – Instinct
Wolf (Instinct) is today’s oracle card and it’s message is to trust your own instincts, even if ignoring them may seem easier in the short term.
You have an innate ability to know exactly where to go, what to do and how to do it. Even though you often forget to use your instinctual abilities, you still have them! You may experience this today as a feeling of excitement, or tiredness when someone suggests an idea to you.
Sometimes its hard to trust your instincts if you have a strong feeling that you should feel or act a certain way. You may fear offending someone if you go with your instincts, but realize that this is only a social fear and your instincts really do know the best path for you. Its safe for you to trust them.
Get in touch with your instincts by meditating in nature (or just imagining yourself in nature while you meditate), and asking your instincts to reveal themselves and bring you guidance. I did this the other day and was amazed at the insights I got, as well as all the creative ideas that came flooding in! Make sure you keep a notebook and pen handy for afterwards.
3. Mountain – Strength
The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.
The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.
It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.
The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.
4. Waterfall – Effortless
Water naturally falls from higher to lower ground, eventually finding its way to the ocean. One of nature’s most exquisite and dynamic demonstrations of this fact is the waterfall. Graceful, powerful and effortless, she can take the breath away with her cascading beauty. She readily flows around that which may impede. She’s extremely patient, persistent and skillful in the way she ever so gradually shapes and carves her passageway down the slopes of the mountain. Note how the waterfall forms ribbons that accord with the artistry of the stone faces she descends, joining the calmer pool for a rest before continuing her journey. There is no strain or stress in this movement, the water simply follows natural law in the interaction between the formation of the precipice that she traverses and the powerful fluidity and adaptability of her flow. Effortless.
You have come to the edge of your comfort zone, there is no need to resist moving past that perceived precipice of who you are, how you can be or what you can do. Spirit is asking you to step beyond the edge and allow yourself to do so with ease. At times physical exertion may be necessary but when performed with fluidity and grace you’ll find the movement moves you, effortlessly. Approach your current situation with awareness and grace, do not try to make it effortless as that just creates more strain. The key word here is allow, even if you are being asked to let go completely and tumble into the brink of creation itself. You will find the waters there to be ultimately still and calm. Keep your focus on your solar plexus and your breath. Relaxing and yielding to the movement that is occurring at any given moment makes your life effortless.
