Today’s Daily Draw

Thunder Drum ~ Warrior Of The Heart

When was the last time you were brave, when you did something or said something that you would normally not do or say openly? After that moment passed, your adrenaline is pumping and you think to yourself “OMG, What did I just do” There may have been some raised eyebrows and fallout, but did you stand by your actions or crumble under the pressure to conform. I think we’ve all had situations where we crumbled so there is no judgment here, ever, so don’t judge yourself in any way. The fear of not fitting in can be a beast sometimes. We had two cards come forward for us today. They are Thunder Drum and Warrior of the Heart. Together they tell us that we might have to be brave, step out of the crowd and make a stand for what we believe. Be the change today. If there is a project at work that is not going in the right direction and you know a better way, speak up. If you see someone being hassled, step in and tell the bully to back off. Today’ is not a day to be shy. Step into the light and let people know who you are and what you can do. Be strong and brave today. Own your power. You Got This!

Today’s Universal Number 

For those of you that don’t know me or my blog well. I am really into numerology and crystals. Everything in the universal breaks down to energy and the numbers. I love sharing these two sections along with the draw. I hope you find them interesting. The universal number we have today is five. I love this number because it is a bit unpredictable. On a five day, expect the unexpected. It is about movement, change and bravely following your heart.

Today’s Crystals  

For bravery I chose Bloodstone and Aquamarine. Both are perfect for giving us that push to stand when we need to. Bloodstone gives us courage, a rush of energy and another thing this crystal can help us with is the ability to think creatively under pressure. Aquamarine works with the throat chakra. It calms and empowers us to speak our truth.

Today’s Daily Draw

Ace Of Swords

The ace of each suit in a Tarot Deck is the energy and promise of a new beginning, a new story. They all give us a boost of pure energy toward where ever our personal stories are leading us. Our card, the Ace of Swords, is the beginning of the realm of intellect and it brings us a new beginning in thought. Today our focus might shift and give us an AHA moment, revealing a new idea, a new project or a new perspective on an issue we have been giving a lot of thought. Take this moment of raw inspiration and run with it. Don’t let anyone stop you.

There is a possible darker side to the Ace of Swords that should be considered. Yes the sword is upright and hinting at the number one and a new beginning, but being upright is also showing strength and being ready for battle. The clarity our new focus could bring today might very well bring us a truth we have been unaware of and one that we are ready to fight for. Pure thought and intellect are pretty cold. There is no room in the facts alone for emotion, but make sure you know all the facts and the truth they tell before you invest your heart in what might be a long fight.

Today’s Universal Number

Today is a four day and its masculine energy of structure, order and its abilityto remain focused and determined could be very helpful today!

Today’s Crystals 

The crystals today are Flourite and Amazonite. Flourite is one of Sharon’s favorites for bringing clarity of thought to ideas and issues. Amazonite is a good choice for new beginnings and making positive life changes.

Today’s Daily Draw

Grandfather Sky

You know that feeling of anxiousness or butterflies in your solar plexus that tells you something big is coming? Sometimes you’re not sure if its good or bad but you know it could change everything. Grandfather Sky is that card today and don’t worry it’s not bad, bad is only a perception, a choice we make in response to circumstances around us. The message of our card is to be prepared. We are on the edge of a big change, a period of growth and we need to honor ourselves. Don’t spend all your energy trying to meet other people’s needs. Doing this drains you and leaves you tired and frustrated. Spend time pampering yourself. Be aware of the growth happening within you and embrace it. Listen to your body today and give it what it needs. Spend time in meditation. If you really want an ice cream, go ahead and treat yourself. Take a nap if you need to, take a walk or a nice long hot bath. Express your thoughts and feelings, with love of course. Be mindful that words and actions can hurt or heal.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a three day today and the energy is about life. The number three is many things. It is joy, creativity, it’s optimism and inspiration. This energy is vibrant, social and spontaneous. Use it well!

Today’s Crystals

I chose three crystals to accompany our card today. They are Turquoise to help us heal. It is also considered a very effective good luck charm. Bloodstone, this is an amazing crystal to use if you need a boost of energy or to overcome self doubt. The final crystal is Carnelian. It’s energy is very passionate and creative. Carnelian will also help open up stuck energy.

Today’s Daily Draw

Annoyed

Have you ever seen a Havana Brown? They are beautiful, their color ranges from a deep, chocolate brown to a lighter milk chocolate. What makes them so interesting is their green eyes and brown whiskers. The Havana is the only breed whose whiskers are the same color as the coat. They are a very social breed but they can be a bit of a diva. When they get an attitude they will toss a “Don’t you dare follow me look” at you and go off on their own. This is what the message of our card, Annoyed, brings us today. We might find ourselves being triggered by something and wind up in a mood. If this happens, don’t take it out on family, friends or coworkers, nobody deserves to be snapped at. Talk about it but if you’re too upset, get off by yourself or wait until you can talk about it calmly. Holding off gives a person time to work through the issue and maybe discover no offense was meant, you don’t have all the information you need or even that you are the one that is wrong. Have a pleasant day!

Today’s Universal Number 

Our universal number is 11/2 today and it’s energy of peace and harmony can go a long way to help us remain calm in the face of something that sets us off.

Today’s Daily Draw

Storyteller

When you get a group of friends or family together the conversation will usually come around to “Do you remember when?” and the stories begin to flow. Everyone shares their experiences of the fun, bravery and foolish chances taken, perhaps even of opportunities missed. Somewhere between Highschool Graduation and our mid twenties the drive to experience all that life has to offer gets lost or replaced by responsibilities of adulthood. The card, Storyteller chose today and asks, Why is that? Why do we suddenly decide that life must be lived from a distance because we reached a certain age? The message of our card today is that life is meant to be lived, not watched. So think big today. make the most of every moment. Do something fun and different. Get the roller skates out of the garage and see if they still fit, go sky diving, sign up for a yoga class. We are the ones that place the meaning on our lives, not anyone else. Turn the tv off, get up, break the cookie cutter that says because we are of a certain age we must stop learning, growing and having big fun and write a story today that will thrill your current or future grandchildren.

Today’s Universal Number

We begin another cycle today with a one energy. We have a new beginning today so be bold, get out there and think big.

Today’s Crystals

As usual trying to decide which crystals to choose was most difficult but I chose Sodalite, Citrine and Carnelian. Sodalite is a crystal that enhances thought. It gives us clarity and helps us focus and concentrate. If you want to learn a new skill or gain insight and knowledge, this is a great choice. Citrine is one of those all around good crystals to have. It’s a crystal that lifts your mood and opens you up to creative ideas. It encourages individuality and self confidence. Carnelian is the color of passion. It will give you the courage and motivation to keep going.

Today’s Daily Draw

Tracker

To do lists are wonderful things, they give us a rundown of the most important items that need to be accomplished in a given day. For some people though a list like this is a painful reminder of the expectations, so they jump from item to item in an attempt to maximize their time and efforts to get more done. This never works of course. The only thing that happens is scattered energy and focus with nothing real to show for it. There is another group of people who get distracted, lose their focus easily and wind up the day with little or nothing to show for their time. The result of both scenarios is that we end up feeling horrible about ourselves and perhaps have an unhappy boss or spouse to answer to. Tracker chose us today to say that this could be one of those days when focused energy is important. Instead of trying to get everything on our lists done, prioritize it so we can focus our attention and passion on what is most important first. When that’s done we can move on to the next most important thing. If something doesn’t really need to be done today, make it a lower priority or take it off the list altogether. That lovely trick will reduce our stress and free up time. If something doesn’t need to be done by us specifically, delegate it to someone who is capable and have them check in with progress reports. By doing what we can today to be more single minded and less distracted we will get more done and be closer to our goals.

Today’s Universal Number

Today is a transition day. We are once again at a nine energy and we are getting ready for a new beginning. This means that we may need to get some things in order and check any plans to make sure everything is ready to go.

Today’s Crystals

For focus I chose Flourite and Unakite. Flourite is a crystal the gives us clarity and helps us stay organized. It’s a great piece to keep in the area where studying is done to help students retain information. Unakite helps us stay calm and focused so we can visualize our goals and stay on track to reaching them.

Great Mystery

Having faith and trusting that there is something bigger than ourselves guiding us in a world that appears to have gone mad is a challenge, but faith is the message of today’s card, Great Mystery. Everything that is became something because someone believed in its possibility. Believe today that you are exactly where you are meant to be and that you are being divinely guided. The seeds of your dream have been planted and it’s time for God, by whatever name you call him, to do the rest. The future is not clearly in sight. If it were there would be no reason for faith or trust. Both are vital so trust that the universe is full of infinite possibilities. Have faith in yourself, your dream and your ability to manifest it and trust that as you follow your path today those infinite possibilities will guide you to your goal.

Today’s Universal Number

We are closer to the end of another cycle with an eight energy today. This is a strong energy that focuses on balance and order between our physical and spiritual lives. If we stay on track we can get a lot accomplished today. Be confident in your abilities and your dreams and know that everything will work out.

Today’s Crystals

For faith and guidance there are many crystals to choose from but I chose Amethyst and Angelite today. Amethyst opens up our spirituality and helps us grow our faith. Angelite helps us connect to our guides and receive guidance.

Spirit of Earth

Comparison is a an easy but sad merry-go-round to get trapped on. The media makes it quite easy for us. We see our favorite movie or tv personalities and want to be like them. When we look at ourselves in a mirror we see imperfection. Our thighs are too heavy, we’re not tall or not thin enough, our hair is wrong, our nose is wrong. The obsession goes on until we are convinced that surely no one could ever like us or love us because we aren’t perfect. There is plenty of comparison going on for the guys too. It’s an equal opportunity ride. The Spirit of Earth came today to tell us to get off that merry-go-round. The reality is that if you asked those movie and tv personalities what they didn’t like about their bodies, they could probably give you a list. No body is perfect, not in this 3D reality. Everyone has something they see as an imperfection and it’s OK. We were designed that way. We all are perfectly imperfect. Embrace the imperfection today and know that you are enough. You are perfect, talented, smart and brave don’t let anyone make you think differently today!

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s energy is the seven, we are almost through another cycle. Seven seeks truth and wisdom, it is the gate to higher knowledge. Seek your truth today.

Today’s Crystals

I chose Rose Quartz and Clear Quartz today to help clear negative self talk and to accept ourselves imperfections and all.

Today’s Daily Draw

Elder

If you were going to make a list of people who were the greatest leaders in your life and had a big influence on the direction of your path, who would you put on the list? A Parent, teacher, coach, a good friend, or maybe even a clerk in a local shop. A good parent guides their child along a path that teaches right and wrong, they see where their child’s interests are and encourages that interest. Then a teacher steps in, sparks curiosity and inspires the child to question and think on their own. A coach may train the child to challenge their bodies to perform beyond limits that the child may not have thought possible. Then there is the good friend that will always stand with the child and keep their secrets. So what is the point here. Elder came to tell us that we are all leaders. We’re not all CEO’s of some fortune 500 company or in politics or anything like that but everyone is in a position to serve and guide someone, be it a family member, a friend or that lonely little boy or girl that comes into the shop to “look around” be mindful of the effect that your words and actions have on others today. Be strong, speak your truth and be willing to step up and be the leader if necessary.

Today’s Universal Number 

We have a six energy today and this is a focus on relationships. On caring, nurturing, and service to others. What a perfect energy for today, use it well.

Today’s Crystals

I chose Carnelian today because it is a crystal helps us be brave, and find our voice.

Owl Medicine

Owls are known as a thoughtful and wise creatures. Like the moon, they are symbolic of insight, knowledge and intuition. These qualities help us find truth, and with truth we can move forward. As our card today, Owl Medicine tells us to be aware of what is going on and how it affects us. Paying attention to our intuition could give us a heads up about people and a situations we are dealing with. Don’t rush into any decisions today. We have things to do and deadlines of course, but give it some time, this way we have the opportunity to go within and discover what it is that our inner selves are telling us.

Today’s Universal Number   

Today is a five day and we may feel the need to get going. Five teaches us about change, our inner strength and ability to adapt. This energy can be sudden and unpredictable, so be ready!

Today’s Crystals

I did something different today with the crystal portion of today’s post. I went around the house and gathered up a few crystals that help us tap into and develop our intuitive and psychic abilities. What I chose is Herkimer Diamond, Iolite, Kyanite, Moldavite, Labradorite, Selenite, Flourite (Purple), Clear Quartz, Moonstone, Apophyllite, Amethyst and up front another piece of labradorite, just because.
