Quote: Opening Doors

 

“Your intuition beckons you to the future with things you feel drawn to because you love them. When you follow that voice you will find doors opening everywhere. If you are finding closed doors, it is the universe telling you there is a better way to go. Don’t keep pushing against closed doors; look around for the open ones.”

My Tarot Pick for November: Ace of Cups by Gerd Ziegler

ace 

The Ace of Cups is one of my favorite tarot cards. And why not, its essence is about love, personal as well as universal,  being in a happy flow and (unconditionally) magnetic to good. Things and issues just effortlessly flow together. May we all enjoy ease, grace, magic and synchronicity as the universe is always voting for our happiness, wellness and fulfillment.

Ace of Cups: Gerd Ziegler – Mirror of the Soul, Handbook for the Alisteir Crowley Tarot

Key Words: Overflowing love; emotional clarity, deep love of the self; giving and receiving.

The white lotus is the symbol for love of a giving nature. It forms the base of the cups, which is blue, color of the element Water. Vertically through the cup flows a brilliant energy beam, uniting Earth and Cosmos. The cup is the medium which makes itself available for the coming together of the above and below, inner and outer. The Ace of Cups is the feminine counterpart to the Ace of Wands; open, receptive, surrendering; bearing the transformatory power of giving love. The upper and lower portions of the painting embody the same quality, below in the emotional realm of water, above in the ethereal sphere of the spirit. As above, so below. That which is internally felt expresses itself externally clearly and openly. Emotional clarity results, emphasized in the painting by its balance and harmony.

The giving of love happens effortlessly. That which continually flows into us from the boundless abundance of the universe radiates outward again by itself, if we remain open and receptive. You can compare it with the flower which exudes its fragrance whether someone comes close to enjoy its perfume or not. This giving is not dependent on individual, perhaps close people. There is so much to share! All of existence can take part in it. Becoming one with the all-embracing, omnipresent love is such a silent ecstasy, a cosmic orgasm!

Indication: You are in contact with all-embracing love. It fills you and you can pass it on generously, lavishly, to others!

Question: What is your way of expressing love?

Suggestion: Let the card work on you for a while. Read the last two
paragraphs of the description again, and close your eyes. Feel yourself
as an open channel for the divine energy.

Affirmation: All-encompassing love fills me and my environment.”

Book Quote: Storytellers by Nicolas Barreau from The Ingredients of Love

15793153

“My theory is that people who write novels and tell stories to us fall into three main groups.
   The first group always write only about themselves – many of them are among the literary greats.
   The second group have an enviable talent for inventing stories. They sit in the train, look out of the window, and suddenly they have an idea.
   And then there are those who might be seen as the impressionists among writers. Their gift is finding stories.
   They travel the world open-eyed and pluck situations, moods and little scenes from the trees like cherries.
   A gesture, a smile, the way someone brushes their hair back or ties their shoelaces. Snapshots behind which stories are hiding. Stories that become pictures.”

–   The Ingredients of Love by Nicolas Barreau

Do You Think that You Have Never Channeled?

ID-10088656

“The times when inspiration flows effortlessly are similar to the channeling state. Most of you have had brief experiences of a channeling-like space, such as talking to a friend in need, feeling wisdom flowing through you and saying things you had not originally intended to say. The moments when you feel deep love for a friend, awe as you look at a beautiful sunset, appreciation for the beauty of a flower, or the reverence of deep prayer all contain elements of this state of consciousness.” Opening to Channel by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer at orindaben.com

Trusting My Guidance

ID-10088652

Thank you Guidance
for all the messages,
affirmations,
confirmations,
revelations
through all my
stubbornness
not to
sometimes
trust
even the most
obvious.
How can I
be so loved
just as I am,
just as we all
are.

And thank you
my stubborn part,
it is you
who miraculously
made me overcome
the most difficult
things in this life,
your will to live
and your will to love,
and your growing
ability to allow ease,
now,
let´s get stubborn
in trusting.

Including a couple of quotes from the wonderful book Opening to Channel by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer at orindaben.com:

“It is all right to have doubts. Almost everyone goes through times of having doubts, even the finest, most experienced channels. You are not alone.”

“More people than ever possess the ability to channel, explore alternate and probable futures, move into new understandings and concepts of time, control the mind and unconscious, and tap into the powers of their superconscious selves. As more people travel into other dimensions and higher realms, a doorway is created for many more who would not have been able to make such journeys before. Changes are occurring in dimensions beyond the earth; doorways are being created to other planes of reality that have never before been accessible to people.”

Quote: The Centre of Your Soul

 

the_known_universe-wallpaper-1280x768Sharing a wonderful quote of Saint Teresa of Avila from the book “The Interior Castle”, translated by Mirabai Starr. Originally posted by Monika in her great post: The Private Self at symbolreader.

“There is a secret place. A radiant sanctuary. As real as your own kitchen. More real than that. Constructed of the purest elements. Overflowing with the ten thousand beautiful things. Worlds within worlds. Forests, rivers. Velvet coverlets thrown over featherbeds, fountains bubbling beneath a canopy of stars. Bountiful forests, universal libraries. A wine cellar offering an intoxication so sweet you will never be sober again. A clarity so complete you will never again forget.

This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway…

No one else controls access to this perfect place. Give yourself your own unconditional permission to go there. … Believe the incredible truth that the Beloved has chosen for his dwelling place the core of your own being because that is the single most beautiful place in all of creation. Waste no time. Enter the centre of your soul.”

– Saint Teresa of Avila, “The Interior Castle”, translated by Mirabai Starr

Quotes About Soulmate Lovers

two_pink_water_lilies-wallpaper-1366x768

Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them before? – JoAnne Kenrick

Instructions are never included. They vary with the strength of your ability to see, the measure of your selective blindness, the limits of your mercy, and the intensity of your desire. – Vera Nazarian

For some people, “the point of no return” begins at the very moment their souls become aware of each others’ existence. – C. JoyBell C.

We were not making love, we did not even kiss, but the inexplicable intimacy we shared left us wordlessly and hopelessly locked into each other’s gaze. – Jasmine Dubroff

I believe in the immeasurable power of love, that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance. – Steve Maraboli

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. –  Dr. Seuss

It is completely possible to have conscious connection through the heart (beyond the experience of the body) with your Twin Flame. This can be experienced in meditation or simply in quiet times of repose. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

The true Twin Flame experience is accessed from within you in still moments through divine feeling, through meditation, through a deep opening of the heart. This sometimes takes the form of ecstatic waves or pulsations of energy moving through the body. Or, you may have the distinct feeling of another being in your energy field or a sense of conversations that may come in word-thoughts or simply through silent unspoken understanding. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

Coming together in relationship on Earth that is a reflection of one’s Twin Flame, the true Twin Flame from the Moment of Creation, has nothing to do with gender in the body on Earth. The important thing is that in every relationship reflecting a Twin Flame connection, one half is carrying the Divine Masculine and one half is carrying the Divine Feminine. This refers not to gender, but to the grand forces of Creation. These people may both be in female bodies, or both be in male bodies. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

As you radiate soul love you may feel a shift in yourself. Some of you will feel this shift as an “aha,” a release, or a feeling of greater love. You may feel a physical sensation of some sort, such as a lessening of tension somewhere in your body. You may discern a change in your attitude. All of these are indications that your heart centers are awakening. – Soul Love / Sanaya Roman

A soul mate is not found. A soul mate is recognized. – Vironika Tugaleva

Before you find your soul mate, you must first discover your soul. – Charles F. Glassman

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. – Richard Bach

We recognize a soulmate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect. – Linda Brady

A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves. – Edgar Cayce

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out. – Roy Croft

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. – Elizabeth Gilbert

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. – Bruce Lee

A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. – Thomas Moore

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. – Rumi
