Today’s Daily Draw

I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t want something better for their life and family. Whether it’s a big thing like a home in a better neighborhood, a more dependable car, a job that pays a more or perhaps what we desire most is feeling loved and at peace. Manifestation came to let us know that those things we truly desire to create a more stable life and future can be ours with focused attention. Energy follows focus so our thoughts become our reality. Sometimes very quickly, sometimes not but, it always works! Unfortunately when we are focused on those things we don’t want, like more bills to pay, that is exactly what we get. The universe is absolutely unbiased and will deliver whatever our energy is sending out. Are we thinking of making a change in our lives today? It can be done but it will take work. Make a manifestation board. Put pictures of all those things that you want to bring into your life on the board. Decorate it so that it looks beautiful, then meditate on those desired items every day. Write positive affirmations and put them up where they can be seen often. When you look at them, pause for a moment, read them and let the words become a part of you. Carry something with you that will remind you of the change you want to manifest. All of these things help retrain our brain away from a negative mind to a positive one. Negative thoughts like blame, shame, judgment, anger, guilt, and envy will not get us to the place we want to be. Only positive thoughts based in love and gratitude will. If we want something new and different, all we have to do is change our minds!

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s universal energy is a one. We are feeling strong and ready to get out and make something fantastic happen!

Today’s Crystals  

When it comes to crystals and manifesting, every crystal can help manifest something into our lives. Clear Quartz is amazing, it can be programmed for any purpose. Aventurine will bring us opportunities that we can use to get us where we want to go. Citrine can help us manifest success in whatever we are working toward. Pyrite can help us manifest financial security by making us aware of how we are spending our money. All crystals help manifest better health in some way. For example if you have a problem with your thyroid, Garnet can help. Do you need grounding? Black Tourmaline can help. I chose Aventurine and Malachite today because these can help manifest abundance. I have already mentioned aventurine so I will speak to the malachite. This beautiful crystal, with its ribbons of green flowing through it helps manifest prosperity, whatever that is to you and it has this wonderful ability to filter out people who do not have your highest good in mind and it brings to you those that do.

Today’s Daily Draw

Boldness

Who said cats don’t swim? They aren’t a fan of water but if there is a good reason, they’re getting wet! That’s the message for today. Boldness! If we see something we want, go for it! If we don’t try we’ll never know. Is a raise in pay on our mind? Go for it, make an appointment with the boss and a list of talking points that explain why it’s deserved. Want to learn how to dance, join a class. It will be fun, good exercise and an opportunity to meet new people! Is there someone you would like to get to know better, be brave and ask him or her our for a coffee. Never been to the Grand Canyon, but always wanted to see it? Why wait for someday, go, plan the trip! Be bold, be brave. Consider it an act of self love! The best stories begin with remember when, not, it would have been fun to….

Today’s Universal Number

We are clearing up the details with a nine day. This is an interesting day. In numerology nine is the completion of a cycle but it also sees life from a bigger perspective. Nine is dramatic, tolerant, forgiving, and wants to leave the world a better place than they found it.

Today’s Crystals

When courage is needed Carnelian is an excellent choice. It lifts our spirits and also helps us think creatively. Sunstone is another good choice. It gives us courage, clarity and self-confidence.

Today’s Daily Draw

New Love

Love in all it’s forms is wonderful, exciting, frustrating and can hurt like crazy once in a while, but I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t want love it in their life. Love is the card that chose us this morning and with it comes a message that we are beginning a new phase of love, what a way to begin a week! If we are in a relationship we could be entering into a deeper more stable and meaningful time with the one we love. If we are having problems with a partner, friend or family member, perhaps today that connection can be put on the path of healing. For those that are single be open to possibility. Don’t put expectations on what love must be. You never know, that perfect person may have been in our line of sight for a while and has gone un noticed because of what we think we want in a mate. Be open to love in all it’s forms today and let those that matter the most to us know how much we love and appreciate them. ❤

Today’s Universal Number

The number eight holds a desire for balance and stability. Things need to be in order and make sense. We may want to make extra sure that everything is in line and done correctly today. Have the correct processes been followed and are we on track?

Today’s Crystals

There are always several crystal to choose from and today I chose Rose Quartz, of course, because it is a crystal of unconditional love. It also helps us heal and forgive when we have been hurt by love or loss. My second choice is Jade which helps us bring love into our lives and my third choice is Garnet to help keep the romance going strong!

Today’s Daily Draw

Freedom

Have you ever felt trapped, powerless to do or say anything to free yourself from an unwanted situation or felt obligated to take part in an activity that you really didn’t want to be a part of? Of course, most of us have and it’s not at all a comfortable space to be. Freedom chose us to bring the message that what we do and say is our personal choice. We alone give other people the authority to impose restrictions on us, like our boss at work. When we feel trapped it is our thoughts, beliefs and actions that are creating a self-imposed prison around us. It’s only when we see that we have the power to free ourselves that we become free. We always have the choice to do or not do something. Yes, sometimes a compromise is necessary, but the outcome of that compromise is a choice we make and live with. What does this message mean for us today? If we find ourselves in a situation where we feel like we are being pushed or obligated to do something we don’t want to do, take a moment and give the emotions we are feeling some thought. Did we make a promise that we need to keep? The next question is how important is our word? Are we being asked to do something at work that we feel isn’t the best or most efficient option? The choice we have is to come forward and ask that the job be given to someone else or present a better way to do the requested job. Sometimes of course we simply have to do those uncomfortable things because we love. We love our family, so we go to work in order to take care for them. We love our partner, so we go to visit the in-laws. We love our kids, so we take them to the park. We love our life, so we take care of ourselves and push to take the uncomfortable risk to move forward on our path.

Today’s Universal Number

Today is a seven day. The energy of the seven seeks insight and understanding and this will be helpful for us if we find ourselves in a place where we need to understand the underlying emotions about what is going on around us and within us.

Today’s Crystals 

After thinking about all the options to accompany today’s card I chose Citrine and Turquoise. Citrine is a crystal that works well with the solar plexus. It gives us the confidence, the feeling of personal power we need to do what we need to do and express our feelings. Turquoise works well with the throat chakra which is the center for our ability to communicate our thoughts and feelings.

Today’s Daily Draw

Trust

For some, trust doesn’t come easily. Even when it comes to trusting oneself. We sometimes trust the wrong people or make decisions that weren’t good ones and the result was not pretty. We’re left feeling bad and doubting our ability to do anything right. An even worse scenario is that some people are raised being told they can’t do anything right. The negative self talk that comes from this is brutal to a growing persons self-esteem. Trust chose us and brings the message that we might find ourselves in a position where we are going to have to trust that everything will work as planned and be alright. Whether it is something work related or personal we will need to have the confidence to believe that the work we have done, or will do to prepare is enough. It might be scary but we can do this! All we can do is let go of any worry or fear that we might mess up, listen to our intuition and do our best.

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s universal energy is six. This is very much a nurturing, people related energy. We may find that spending time with those we love is the best thing to do today. Go to the beach or a park and just enjoy!

Today’s Crystals

I chose three crystals today. Two are old favorites but the third is one I don’t believe I have used here before, I might have. Anyway that is Black Tourmaline. This is a fantastic choice for protection, it shields us from negativity and is a good choice for grounding. Another thing this crystal does is help us release worry. When we can do that we make room for self-confidence to come in. Carnelian is a terrific choice for confidence. This crystal works well with our lower chakras to give us a boost of energy, creativity and that wonderful I can do this attitude! Amethyst will help us let go of stress and open our intuition so that we can make good clear decisions. Being a member of the quartz family it will also help us release negative energy.

Today’s Daily Draw

Focus

Have you ever had so much going on at once that you couldn’t concentrate long enough to get anything done? Or been so focused on a problem that finding a solution wasn’t even on the radar? Of course, we all have at one time or another. Maybe this week has been like that, but today may have its issues because Focus has come to remind us to stay on track. Don’t let distractions get in the way of the things we need or want to accomplish. They do have a lovely way of pulling us off course don’t they. Like cookies fresh out of the oven, yup! If there is a lot to do, put the needed attention on the most important or time sensitive thing first. No matter how big a job it might be. Get it done and out-of-the-way. Delegate some of the list to someone capable and don’t worry about the rest right now. Another aspect of focus that we may want to consider today is our thoughts. We know that energy follows focus and our thoughts become our experiences. So, what we think is important. It’s not always easy to concentrate on the good when what we think is bad looms large over our lives or we have seven things on our mind at once. It takes time to retrain our brain, especially if we’ve been or are surrounded by negativity. It takes time to learn how to get the mental clutter under control. Fortunately, we have time!

Today’s Universal Number

How appropriate is focus choosing us on a five energy day? I had to chuckle, seriously! We all know that five is about variety, change and learning to deal with it. Yes, sometimes change is good and fun. It’s a matter of deciding how much, when and how dedicated we are to getting a task done. Five is about fun as well so when the work is done, get out and have a great time!

Today’s Crystals

I chose three crystals to accompany today’s card. The first is Fluorite, one of my favorite “goto” crystals for situations where focus is needed. It helps us find the clarity needed to stay on track. Hematite is my second choice and this may seem a bit odd to some. This is a wonderful choice for grounding and when we have multiple things going on at once or we are finding it hard to reach a solution to a problem, grounding is just what we need. My third choice for the day is Septarian. I love this little beauty! Septarian helps us keep our focus on one thing at a time. This baby stays on my desk right next to the fluorite and the hematite!!!

Today’s Daily Draw

Truth & Integrity

Honesty can be scary, especially when it comes to being honest with ourselves. Everyone wants to be told the truth. But to open our heart and let the truth out, whatever the situation may be, leaves us defenceless. Nobody wants to be that vulnerable, so we sometimes live with a version of truth that is acceptable. We stay in relationships or jobs that don’t work for us anymore. We find excuses to not do things we want to do. “I’m too busy to go to the gym today, I’ll go tomorrow” or we ignore what might be a health issue because we don’t want to go to a doctor and be told there is something wrong. Truth & Integrity asks us to be real with ourselves today. We know where we want to go but to get there means that we have to do the physical and emotional work. Some days that work feels like we are trying to move a mountain with a spoon. All we have to do is release it.  Letting go of things that don’t resonate with our highest good is never easy, but it is necessary. Let’s be willing to ask ourselves the hard questions. Are we living our truth? Are we just talking the talk? What needs to change? It is a hard mirror to look in but don’t judge the reflection. Becoming who we want to be and getting where we want to go means being honest with ourselves and doing the work that will help us get there. That is an act of self love, not self judgment.

Today’s Universal Number

Talk about synchronicity. We have a card asking us to do the work necessary to be true to ourselves and today is a four day. Four is doing the work, finding the structure and being disciplined and laying the foundation that we can build on.

Today’s Crystals

Today was an unusually easy crystal choice day for me. I chose Rutiladed Quartz and Lapis Lazuli. Rutilated Quartz is like a light shining in the dark. It spreads its beam everywhere to help us find the truths that are trying to hide. It is a wonderful crystal for helping us focus positive energy on a goal and helps get our energy moving. Lapis Lazuli is a high energy crystal. It helps us work to get rid of thought patterns and beliefs that do not serve our highest good which allows us to be authentically who we are.

Today’s Daily Draw

Intention

We know that energy follows focus and our thoughts become our experiences. This means that our focus and our expectations matter, a great deal. The card that came up for us today is Intention. She asks us to take a look at the things we are focusing on. Are these possibilities that we envision for ourselves what truly want? Are our thoughts and feelings in line with our vision for the future? Are we giving 100% of our energy to creating the reality that we desire? Take some time to do a self check of our expectations today? What do we want to accomplish? What do we want to manifest short and long term in our lives? Think of our goals as seeds that we plant in our minds and hearts. It is our intentions that plant the seeds but it is focus and action that nourish them and allow them to grow.

Today’s Universal Number 

We are at a three day today, a third of the way through another mini cycle. Wow, time does fly. The three is a creative and joy filled number, a number of expression. Three is also the number of triadic union. Let’s take advantage of today’s energy to find creative, fun ways to reach our goals and make sure that our goals, the universe and our guides are on the same page.

Today’s Crystals 

The crystals I chose to accompany today’s card are Clear Flourite, Labradorite and Clear Quartz. The flourite will help us find clarity about what our true intentions and desires are. Labradorite will help creat the magick that to manifest them to this reality and clear quartz will help get rid of any negative thought that could be in the way and boost the energy of the flourite and labradorite.

Today’s Daily Draw

Power

 Strength, confidence and feeling powerful are personal qualities we all desire to have tucked away in our pack of superpowers. It seems effortless for some people to stand and speak, whether it’s a work setting or with family and friends. The reality is that personal power is in us all and this is the message of today’s card, Power. Being made in the image of our creator means that we have the ability to shape our lives into whatever reality we choose. We have the power to be who we chose to be and speak our truth, with love of course. Sure there are going to be people that will not agree with us. There may even be people that might ridiclue or try to bully us. We have the right to stand our ground. Depending on the situation perhaps a compromise can be achieved. If we find ourselves in a place where being speaking our truth about something is necessary. Step out of any fear and share it. It could be that it is a better solution to a problem than what has been presented.

Today’s Universal Number

The universal energy we have around us today is the two. This energy is one that seeks peace. It is a nurturing energy and will help us find the strength to do what we need to do. It is also about duality and partnerships so we find ourselves working in teams to get a job done or perhaps having some alone time with someone special!

Today’s Crystals

Carnelian or Red Jasper would be good choices for today but I went in a different direction with my crystal choice and picked Lapis Lazuli and Citrine. Lapis Lazuli is a good crystal for the throat chakra. It will give us the confidence to speak your truth. Citrine is a great choice for the third chakra because it give us the energy boost to get out and succeed!

Today’s Daily Draw

Forgiveness

Everyone understands what it is to be irritated by something like a dripping faucet, a persons repetitive behavior like tapping a pen on the table or getting lost when we thought we understood the directions. These kinds of things are annoying but we usually don’t hang onto the negative emotion. We forgive the annoyance because there is no reason to let it keep bothering us. Having someone not understand us or treat us badly; now that’s not so easy to release is it? We can hang onto that emotional pain for decades. We poke at it sometimes to keep the pain raw and fresh. Some people wear anger and her sisters bitterness, rage and cousin judgment like a badge of honor. They would rather stubbornly hold on to the idea that they were wronged than let it go and be happy. Forgiveness chose us today and asks us to be willing to forgive if someone hurts us. She also asks if we are holding a past offense that needs to be released from our heart. Forgiving doesn’t mean that what someone did was acceptable. It doesn’t mean we will forget the offence. To forgive means that we are no longer willing to let that moment in time have a place in our heart and our life anymore. We acknowledged the offense, felt the pain, learned from it and chose to let it go and be happy instead.

Today’s Universal Number 

We are starting out the week with a one energy, a new beginning! One is strong, bold and ready to get moving. So let’s go!

Today’s Crystals

To release anger and the pain that goes with it I chose Rutilated Quartz and Rhodonite. Rutilated Quartz will help us let go of the negative energy and get to the root of the issue causing our anger. Once we understand the cause we can acknowledge it and release it. Rhodonite will help us fill the space that anger held with compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and the person who wronged us. Allowing us to move on.
