THE WORD WANTS TO BE WRITTEN: You might have been taught that creativity is something you have to work hard to access, or that finding your life purpose is so difficult that you must search high and low for it. Yet what you are is within you and wants to come out at every available opportunity! You don’t have to struggle so much. It is more about allowing space for it to manifest and to let the energy flow. The real struggle is not in finding something. It is more about letting go of the idea that you need to search for your path in the first place. You see, the process of activating your life path is a natural one. The effort is in getting out of the way, not in making something happen.
As for being yourself, that is the foundation from which your true life path will reveal itself. Being yourself becomes easier when you give yourself permission to love, honor and accept yourself in all circumstances, especially the ones where you might be more tempted to reject and judge. Give the sacred rebel within the opportunity to decide your values – irrespective of whether they meet with general acceptance.
This oracle brings you the message that what you are dreaming of or seeking to do, create, live or manifest, is actual very natural for you. That is why you want to do it.
If you experienced controlling and manipulative forces as you were growing up, you would have found it hard to access your natural state at the time. You would have been too busy trying to adapt and get through the trials of childhood.
When you finished navigating childhood and started to let go of who you were taught to be in order to become who you really are, you may have found your life path was not easily accessible. That is simply because your true and natural self was covered by layers of shame from the early conditioning that you had to be other than you are in order to win love or be acceptable.
However, that natural self hasn’t gone anywhere. It is still there within you. Now it is just about chipping away at the walls of shame, perhaps with a defiant, “Who the hell cares, I am here and I am going to love myself anyway.” This allows you to risk bearing the feeling of any shame that arises as you release old emotional wounds and break away from any restraints to unconditional self-love. The sacred rebel within can empower you to love yourself no matter what, simply because you want to. You might decide to declare, “I am still lovable – so put that in your pipe and smoke it!” This will send an energetic message to whomever shamed you in the first place, whether they meant to or not. Your message could be going to a parent, school teacher, sibling, friend, lover or anyone else that was struggling enough with their own shame wound that they couldn’t help but dump it on you. You can be freed to realize that the shame is just an emotion, not a truth, and you can defy any hold it has ever had on you and your ability to love yourself. This oracle brings you the guidance that you are now powerful enough to break the cycle. It is time to stop the shame and claim yourself in love instead.
What you want to write, sing, dance or become, is you. It is natural. Drop your defences, get into the grit and confront the power that any old shaming has had over you. It’s finished now. It is time for you to be naked with yourself, acknowledge how gorgeous you are and get on with your work. Life is urging you to do so, because the work wants to happen. What you want to create, wants to be created. The word wants to be written. You just need to let go of any remnants of the past that have been in your way. Step firmly over them and on to your path.
Healing Process: Say aloud, “I now choose to forgive and release any person, situation or circumstances that has ever been a source of shame or shaming for me, whether conscious or unconscious. I now release this from my body, mind and heart, through unconditional love. I choose to claim myself instead. I love, accept and claim all of me under the loving protection and wisdom of life. I choose to live as myself. Now. I call on the unconditionally loving assistance that life wishes to send me for this journey now. I honor my creative power and my innate worth. So be it.
Be kind to yourself. Say this every day for the next few days or however long it takes for you to believe it. You are worth the effort.

WHAT YOU WANT, WANTS YOU: Do you dare to believe that what you want, is also wanting you? The genuine desires of your heart are the sacred purpose of the soul, swathed in pleasure. Yet, if you have been shamed, judged for, made to feel guilt over, or denied your natural desires or pleasures in any way, you may have developed a very tricky and complicated relationship with the yearnings of your heart. We often learn to distrust our own desires and come to believe that they are something to be overcome or avoided. We may even try to want second best, disbelieving that we are worthy of our first choice, of what we really, genuinely want, and would fulfil us deeply. Perhaps we have conditioned ourselves to believe that getting what we want is for others, not us.
This oracle comes with a healing message for you. First, trust in what you truly want. Not the substitutions and make-dos, but what would truly bring a sense of passionate, playful purpose and fulfilment in your life. You might not know anything more than “I want to sing!” or “I want to write!” or “I want to helps animals!” or “I want to paint!” Start with what you know and hold it in your heart as you do the healing process below. If you genuinely do not know what your heart wants, you will very much enjoy the process of exploring your desires by making gentle and persistent enquiries of yourself. Ask yourself what it is that truly moves you. Give this matter consistent attention without forcing a response. Your answers may come in a sudden flood, or slowly, over time.
As you get to know your genuine desires and give yourself permission to feel and receive them, a powerful sequence is set in motion. From the depths of the universe, your desire hurtles its way towards you as the perfect manifestation. It is coming to you even now- manifesting itself as the best situation or relationship or circumstances to bring fulfilment to your heart, radiance to your life path and a creative awakening. So don’t give up. Keep dreaming of your fulfilment, but don’t imagine it as always awaiting you in some distant future. Instead play with what it will feel like to be so fulfilled, right now. How will you feel different? Will you be more grateful, more peaceful and content? More confident? More trusting of your ability to create and in the loving responses of this wild universe? Cultivate those feelings. Get to feel what genuine desire and the meeting of that desire – that can then generate yet new desire – is like for you. Give yourself permission to go there, right now.
Remember that if you have people in your life who are shutting you down, suggesting that what you want is not possible or that you are aiming too high, then they need this healing too. Perhaps you can inspire them by giving yourself permission to heal. This will naturally open them to the idea that they could give themselves permission to know and fulfil their unique desires too. Whether someone chooses to be inspired by you or fearful of your innate creative power, is completely up to them.
This oracle brings you the message that whether you see it coming or not, your desire is already on its way to you. It is closer than you think and soon you will be able to see it, touch it, feel it and enjoy it. You will then become inspired for your next manifestation based on the true desires of your heart.
Healing Process: Repeat this statement three times, with feeling. “What I want, wants me and I am open, willing and capable to receive it, through unconditional love now.”

EVERY JOURNEY STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP: You are on a journey. Yes, it is an internal journey but there is also a physical expression of this journey that is going to become increasingly important to the fulfilment of your destiny in this lifetime. Your journey has started on the inside but its destination will be the physical expression of an internal healing. This journey will draw upon what you have learned and mastered over the course of your life – so much so, that you may feel as though your life experiences have prepared you just for this particular adventure.
You have all that you need within you. This is not a time to worry about what you are going to take with you. From within your heart, you will sense what needs to come along for the ride and what is best left behind you now. You may be surprised at exactly how much can be left behind without you feeling concerned or anxious. You will be able to travel far lighter than you ever imagined possible.
To be best equipped for this journey, you will need a lightness of heart and the realization that change can be an incredible blessing, even if what you are leaving behind is something you found secure, safe, familiar or comforting. Just as the butterfly leaves the chrysalis behind when it is time to spread its newly formed wings, so too are you ready to leave behind what once was and embrace what is more appropriate for you at this time.
There is an element to the journey you are embarking upon that is unknown. Perhaps it is news to you that you are even taking a journey! However, the realization that travelling along a familiar path brings no guarantees, is more likely. This open, unscripted quality to your journey will help you gain the most from your experiences. You see, this journey is a spiritual gift. It is an invitation from the great loving heart of the universe, calling you into something that you would not have otherwise found. You are not supposed to know all the details, nor how it is going to work out, before you set out. You are just meant to take one step after the other. Again. And again. So that you can receive the gifts that are headed your way.
If you are considering taking a physical trip somewhere, this oracle comes as a confirmation that the journey will in some way be a life-changing one and this is good. If the journey you are considering is of a more internal variety – such as exploring a new field of consciousness, beginning a new creative work or travelling into the void of unknown possibilities in order to start your work – then this oracle is confirmation that it is indeed a wise choice and much new life will come of it.
This oracle brings you particular guidance that the apparently small steps you are taking in an area of your life, important to you right now, are actually far more powerful and constructive than you realize. Sometimes we are gaining ground but the effect is not immediately obvious. This doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. It simply means that the effects of your actions are cumulative and soon they will begin to overflow into the physical world with a positive impact that may surprise you. This oracle brings you the message to keep going. If you have been doing a lot of inner work and are frustrated or concerned that you are not seeing the results translate into the physical world, keep faith, as the physical manifestation of your inner work IS coming. Remember that you have all the resources you need and then some. Your inner and outer journeys are blessed with positive energy and all you need to do is to keep going – one step at a time.
Healing Process: Say aloud, “Of my own free will, I now choose to surrender any fear or doubt about my ability to succeed. I believe in myself. I trust myself. I have faith in the unfolding journeys of my life, both internally and out in the world. Even in the face of the unknown, I know that positive energy surrounds me and I am protected. Through unconditional love, I am supported and assisted to take each step, as needs be, so that my great, creative, life journey can be all that it can be.”
You may like to complete your healing process with a quick dance around the lounge room, feeling joy in your heart and lightness in your step. Just a suggestion!
