True Colors


Who are you?
I Am the One in you Who is lovingly held in the Spirit of my True Colors -- the colors of love, self-acceptance and joy.  I AM the One Who is looking away, not totally present in the moment, and still I am held by my True Colors.  I Am One Who is surrounded by my True Colors, they talk to me.. whispering "Let your True Colors shine through, always."  

I want you to know..
...the wisdom and security to know that being yourself is always the best medicine, the perfect solution... the best answer to any question or quandary.  Be sure to be yourself and you will always win...even if it doesn't seem like it.  There is nothing to fear.  Remember, winning is best when it's a win/win..and when it's received with Grace and Gratitude.  The win/win is sometimes apparent, and sometimes not.  No worries, just let your True Colors shine in all you think, do and say; proudly, confidently.

Also... 
I am here to remind you that you are always wearing your True Colors, because the ARE you! They live in you.  They the Essence of You.  There is no way you cannot NOT don them.  They will always shine through ..and especially, to the degree of your own self-acceptance and celebration of ALL of who you are; every last reflection of yourself accepted, loved and honored.

I want you to...
...let your Real Self shine through...and remember to be aware of that. No apologies necessary, ever!  Remember this..and wear deep, rich, bright colors that reflect your Inner Colors. Remember, your True Colors shine through your soul...like a radiant sunset on the horizon; shimmering and reflecting on the water and in the infinite sky.  Be aware and ...and let your light -and True Colors- shine, shine, shine!

Blessings always...

Strength


This card was inspired by the 12 Powers Sculpture Project for the Unity Village Prayer Garden, which can be seen on page two of the above link.  Also, I find this beautiful short video featuring the artist, Barry Eisenhart and his installation of the sculptures...simply captivating.
(All purple text links to the project site and artist.)
 
And now, my conversation with the card...

Who are you to me today?
I Am One who holds balance. I do this by strength...first inner, then outer.  I Am pure strength. What you see is one way I express myself in the world.  The seeming effortless holding requires the strength of determination and practice. It requires inner-conditioning of mind, body and spirit. I Am One Who knows the strength and nourishment of pausing to witness the sunset and sunrise.  I Am One Who knows the strength of feeling the at-oneness with nature. I Am One Who knows the strength of shedding tears...and the strength of perseverance to row, row, row your boat of life gently down the stream.

What message do you have for me today?
Strength is a spiritual quality... from there strength of mind and body follows.  Nurture it within and you will have it 'without' (in the physical).  Strength has many faces and reveals itself in different ways.  Sometimes on the surface, strength may look like weakness, passivity.  Strength walks softly and carries a big stick.  Know that right now, you always have all the strength you will ever need.  Keep your symbol of strength in your heart.

Remember... always treat yourself with loving-kindness. That is the best strength you can have. With loving-kindness comes an infinitude other qualities to nourish and nurture yourself.  Open your being and receive them all.  You my dear...are much stronger than you may know...and much stronger than you think.  Everyday, do what strengthens and nourishes your spirit and your soul.
Embody and do whatever strengthens your essence, your appreciation for your self, your life... and all of life.

Story Teller/Dream Weaver


Who are you to me today?
I Am One Who sees and weaves your stories and dreams.  I create them according to your own soul's awareness...desire... and yearning.  I Am One Who sees the big picture as it dreams and weaves in and through your Awareness.  I also see your stories, often before you do; before you're aware of them.  I Am One Who gives you a glimpse...an urge...a preview of what's to come... I also clarify your understanding and wisdom of "what is".  They both originate within you... as a flicker or flame.  I Am One Who awakens your dreaming, imagining and feeling nature.  I Am One Who shows in the Outer, what you what you are entertaining in the Inner.  I Am One Who has the power to weave the stories and dreams however you have conceived and felt them...and even into something better.   

My message for you today is:  Let yourself keep dreaming, night dreams and day dreams.  Let yourself keep weaving the stories of your heart's desires, you know...the ones that have been with you since All of Time.  Allow yourself to embody, experience them all...they are yours.  And, for anything that's less than appealing...you have the power to release that and rewrite those stories from beginning, middle and end.  That is essential. Start today.  And remember, your life is all yours!  It's your story and you can tell it, write it, weave it, participate in it however you choose. 

 My name is Audra and I am with you always... working on your behalf.

Shadow Reflections



This is a photo of my own shadow, taken in California the weekend of my SoulCollage® Facilitator's training in 2007.  The more I reflect upon the energy of this Card, I am fascinated to see that my shadow, has a shadow!...which shows up...hovering on the right side of my body. During a reading with this Card about a year ago, it was revealed that the shadow of my shadow is my "Shadow Essence".  Webster's defines essence as: "The basic nature of a thing. The quality or qualities that make a thing what it is."  I exhale.  A gentle smile emerges. I glow at the mystery of it all: "the essence of my shadow".  What a holy moment for me, to glimpse and realize the reality of it all.  It feels good. In some inexplicable way...it feels safe and comforting.  My Sunday morning reading with this card revealed:

I am the one who is with you always...seeing and feeling all you go through and do.  I am the one who sees what you might not consciously see, and feel.  I have a unique point of view. I see you. You are me and I am you.

My message to you today is:  Don't be afraid of the shadow side.  I have gifts that your mind might not "get" right away.  Gentle reflection and awareness of me brings deeper insight and appreciation.  There is more to me than you realize.  I am your Shadow...and the Essence of your Shadow; an integral part of you.   You are doubly-sealed with this sometimes mysterious, yet compassionate energy. There is nothing to fear. My insights and wisdom for you simply come in a different way...a different point of view from what you're accustomed to. See from that different point of view.  I am here supporting and balancing your wholeness.  It's all to make you wiser and take you deeper into your own self-knowledge and mastery.  Love me.  Love you.
