Listening to the Oracle (or, when I didn’t!)!
Updated: February 7, 2016
Dearest sparkly luminous being!
Yes I’m back to myself and not wafting maudlin over our little Olli who is gratefully and relatively stable (knock on wood, plastic, concrete whatever works) now that I have assembled a dream team of the best veterinary neurologist, a revealing session with a veterinary intuitive in Idaho and a mind blowing session with Anthony Williams the medical medium, all resulting in a cocktail of medicines, new diet, and tinctures and vitamins. O and a constant Ho’oponopono cleaning. Whatever happens now is totally in Spirits hands. I have officially surrendered and it feels good and right.
So I had quite a revelation yesterday while editing my new book Uncharted – the journey through uncertainty to infinite possibility. I had written about what happened to me when, after a bout of internet bullying/shaming after I appeared on the Dr. Phil show, I had fallen into spiritual narcolepsy and let Chicken Little take over completely (since it scared the crap out of me) and decide I needed to be someone else, so I hired a branding expert to make me more mainstream.
What I didn’t add in the book was that I had done a reading with my Hidden Realms oracle asking about this new decision, which promptly told me I would be back where I started in short order having learned a very painful and unnecessary lesson. But that “hey… go ahead, no matter what you will learn something valuable”.
I remember the cards I chose for the question was the Lady of Lightning reversed, The Diamond Dreamer reversed and The Spiral Dancer as I had written them down in my journal.
Not satisfied with the message, and because I didn’t think it was correct, I also had consulted the I-Ching, which also began with a warning and ended with an even sterner one. The hexagram was called Shock, and the message was something like “the little fox drowns crossing the great stream after burning its tail” to “No hope until the superior man admits his blindness and eats worms. Only then can he become the true magician”.
Onerous nasty oracle. I decided there must be something wrong with my coins!
That sounds like it’s saying this is a bad idea Colette!
Did I listen?
HA! I listened selectively to the message and decided that the cards were talking about what had already happened. I also only saw the part of “learning something valuable” which I decided meant “ Great! Full steam ahead” and I decided the I-Ching reading was to be delegated to a “forget that one altogether- that can’t be right” page.
I was so adamant of the course I was on because I knew better and decided all by myself that Spirit wanted this for me too. And I considered I had approached the oracle in a bad mood so that’s why I got a crappy reading. Yes even I can be in total denial sometimes doing the complete opposite of what I teach!
We all know what happened. A week later while I was careening forward on this new course of reinventing myself I crashed my Harley and had to stay in bed all that summer to contemplate my choices.
Now could I have avoided all this?
Yes! If I had approached the oracle with neutrality (something I teach) and dealt with my unresolved ancestral fears about persecution and people pleasing as a survival tactic then and there, the outcome would have been different.
The lesson may have been less dramatic shall we say, but regardless the oracle was showing me my path as I had set it in motion.
I was meant to do the healing work that the fear was inviting.
I was forewarned and forearmed.
Hindsight is always 20/20. The oracle was 100% accurate (both of them were) and in the end that one line was the most important, and although I didn’t have to eat real worms, I had to admit to my blindness to bring about the alchemy that made me who I am today.
Something important was learned and I am back full circle more raw and more real than ever before.
In the midst of it all I was fully aware that I was trapped by my fear and that I was only intermittently awake to my highest good. When the accident happened I knew immediately it was to stop me in my tracks. To be honest it was an extraordinary experience.
After this, it took another 6 months to dismantle what I had begun, and I chose to consult my oracles with a lot more humility. They helped me find my way back to me by essentially keeping the light on the next right action for the highest good.
I can be very stubborn.
So when you work with an oracle they will always reflect the truth of where you are at and accurately predict the direction you’re heading in too.
When you do a daily reading, asking for a reflection of where you’re at you really can avoid a whole lot of disappointment and unnecessary pain. Or you can also find out the purpose of your suffering is in the end to set you free from an old story.
Today my new oracle card class begins for people who want to learn how to do a daily reading as part of their spiritual practice. I’m super excited to talk to everyone live this Wednesday evening. This is my passion and my obsession. Spirit is always listening to us and always ready to give guidance if we’re willing to hear it.
Hope to “see” you there.
Have you ever refused an oracle reading that turned out to be true and still valuable to your personal growth? Ok its Your turn! Please share your experience.
I love hearing from my sparkly special tribe.
Love you always and forever!
