SACRED FOOL: The fool is a great rebel, able to thwart convention and tell the truth without restraint. Your heart is a wonderful, powerful, sacred fool! It cares not for the right way to do things. It cares not for what the mind says is real or not real. It lives according to an inner wisdom that cannot be dictated to or controlled by anything! It loves, it lives, and it is what it is!
This oracle heralds a time – now or imminent – when you will feel inspired, alive and passionate for what you can offer to the world. It says to you, “Don’t try to be appropriate, don’t try to be socially acceptable and worry about what others may think about what you are doing – just be. If you want to wear a mad hat whilst doing so, fine.
The sacred fool in you is willing to leave behind what has been because it no longer feels right to stay attached to it. The sacred fool in you trusts life completely. It would never occur to this part of you to try and outsmart life or resist its flow. It recognizes that the mind is a monkey puppet on strings. More often than not, it is cajoled into fear when it could be playfully dwelling in radical spontaneity of life. So, the sacred foo in you urges your mind to let itself be pulled into joy by your heart strings not into fear and doubt by the controlling machines of mass media.
The oracle brings you a message. It’s time for you to play. It’s time for you to let life happen in a completely unreserved, unscripted way. The more bizarre, left of field, unexpected and apparently ridiculous, the better. This might not feel safe or appropriate at first. That is okay. That is good actually. It is a sign that you are breaking with your own self-imposed conventions. It is time to move beyond them now because a bigger life adventure is calling to you.
This is wonderful news. It is the desire of life to operate more radically through you so that you become the conduit through which miracles and crazy wild synchronicity can occur. You are becoming more electric. You are more plugged into the apparent randomness of life. Apparent because there is a refined intelligence behind it all. The sacred fool goes with this, without having to understand any of it. (Which is good! Trying to access even one genuine glimpse of life’s unfathomable genius would probably make one’s head explode.)
As you take this journey, you may find that people around you are challenged. You might unintentionally cause them to rethink the way they live their lives. They may question whether the way they are living is the only way for them or even the best way. At first, they may react rather than take responsibility. The sacred fool in you doesn’t engage with this. It is what it is, and it rises and falls as it will. It doesn’t stop you from your merry dance of unconventional being.
If you find yourself making choices that have others questioning your sanity, then you are right on course. You may feel that you are quite possibly going insane, but you are not crazy. You are just approaching enlightened awareness. There is a moment – sometimes a rather long one – when we wake up to life, shed our attachment to mass opinion and float in a completely different state of being. We might find that no one is really able to understand or connect with us, to the point that we question our state of ind. Stay with that. It will pass. You will eventually see that you are becoming sane in an insane world. The tables will turn and you will gain great inner freedom and creative juice. Stay on your path, stay on the journey, remember to take nothing too seriously and it will all work out perfectly.

SPIRALS OF MANIFESTATION: The creative, rebellious path of love moves in spirals. It is not linear. Sometimes our mind decides that the way forward is to take clear steps from one point to the next logical point. However, there is a genius within that can guide us on an alternative route. If there is an unnecessary pothole or delay in the typical linear path of progression and the curved loop in the path will be quicker, more fun and more beautiful, then why not allow yourself to be guided to that path? This can happen through trust and wisdom rather than rigid adherence to what on the surface appears to be logical progression.
You are in the midst of a spiral of manifestation. Something is coming into being, even if you think it is further away than ever before. How amazing it will seem when what you have been dreaming of falls into place. Suddenly what you have been thinking of creating will plonk into your reality, seemingly out of nowhere – because it was just around the bend, just out of view on the spiral of manifestation and you could not see it coming. In truth, it was coming to you all along!
This oracle has a message for you. Sometimes when we feel the furthest away from what we want, we are actually closer than ever before. Just one turn on the spiral loop of creation can see your manifestation taking root in the world. You must hold true to your faith and keep working on your progress. Forget about believing it when you are seeing it! Any old soul – or young soul – can do that! You are a bigger, braver, more ancient soul. You have enough chutzpah to believe it so that you can see it sooner, bigger and brighter! Do not give in to those who tell you it should have happened already or that you have failed. They are just suffering from a lack of patience and understanding, as well as an arrogant assumption that their notion of timing is somehow superior to the greater divine timing at play in life. Be in goodwill with yourself and the universe. All is unfolding perfectly whether you feel it right now or not.
This oracle also brings a message to you about the perfect synchronicities that are taking place in your life. You may have started to notice these already. When we live from the heart, honor our creative center and choose unlikely but lovingly rebellious ways to be in the world, we will begin to notice synchronicity every day. It is as though the universe is speaking to us intimately, on all matters – which, of course, it is.
This oracle reminds you that there is no point in rushing to the bus stop. If you are way too early, you are just wasting your time. Better to live your life at a more appropriate pace and get there at the right time. You don’t need the anxiety that comes from rushing towards your destiny. Try not to worry quite so much about the future. You will attract what you want and need so much more enjoyably if you relax and deal with the here and now.
Remember too that your life path is unfolding in harmony with the path of others. You will meet with each other, for the greatest benefit, when you trust in the flow of the one, great, creative spiral upon which this galaxy spins. Everything is ultimately in harmony with everything else to fulfil the great, big, creative intent of the supreme, creative force of love. You’re included in that! Lucky!

DREAM A BEAUTIFUL DREAM: The urge to create is the same within you as it is for the universal creator. It also has the same magical ability to draw harmony into being and to find beautiful order in chaos. This includes bringing harmony and the perfect balance of wellbeing into your body, mind and emotions.
This is also the part of you that wants to dream of beauty and bring it to life in as many ways as possible – in how you eat, dress, look, behave, make love, create art, relate to your community, write your poetry by moonlight or bathe by candlelight . . .
If you have come to believe that your love of beauty is superficial rather than a genuine expression of your heart’s appreciation of symmetry, harmony and grace then you may block your ability to create harmony in your life. You may believe it to be an unworthy goal. Yet beauty – genuine beauty rather than superficial glamour – flows from within. It is an expression of radiance within the heart and a love of life. If you have struggled with the obsessive attitude towards beauty that tends to prevail in human culture, then it is time you look to nature instead. Her beauty is boundless, quirky and endlessly diverse. If you feel blocked, thwarted or contaminated by others in your quest to bring your beautiful dreams to life, you may feel that you heart is dulled, minimized or shut down. Small-mindedness can limit beauty to a very narrow, physical sense. However, you can shun the social disease of superficial, narrow definitions of beauty, thumb your nose at air-brushed images and dare to love what is. Honoring nature is one example. Give yourself permission to feel and be beautiful in many ways. You can feel harmony outside of what is supposed to be harmonious! If you are brave and wild enough, you can even find beauty and harmony amongst the chaos of change. Sensing that change is just the creative process kicking into gear. Realizing there is nothing to fear brings even greater beauty, harmony, surrender and grace to the experience of life creating itself, in more stunning forms, through you.
You are meant to dream of beauty and to create beauty, in its far more holistic and creative definition. Beauty is meant to soothe the soul, inspire thoughts of love, devotion and appreciation and to balance the nervous system. These are healing effects! Healing for the creator and those that receive it. They are worthwhile. They are not meaningless, impractical, flippant or trivial. A world without the beauty of art, in all its various and unique interpretations, would be a less colorful, less vibrant, less cheeky and less healing place to be. Time that you spend dreaming of beauty and allowing it to be born through you in various heart-centered ways is worthwhile. Don’t disregard it or discount it. The most beautiful dreams can inspire the practical, hardworking dedication required to bring them to life for the betterment of the world.
This oracle also comes with a particular message for you. There is a situation in your life right now where you feel uncertain about your ability to ‘fix’ or heal. You lack the inspiration to be able to imagine if differently than how it currently seems to be. You may therefore feel inhibited in your ability to bring about constructive change. However, the perfect beauty of this situation is not revealed by what you attempt to do to it, or through trying to impose the right ‘dream’ upon it. It is to be healed and perfected into all that it can be, through the revelation of the beauty that already lies within it. This happens when we accept the existence of inner harmony in all of creation, even if it cannot be consciously observed. By expecting there to be beauty within a situation, even if it is hidden, you will be more open to seeing the healing potential, even in your challenges. Don’t attempt to force the situation or issue to take the ‘right’ shape. Instead ask it to show its beauty to you. This might apply to your body, to your relationship, to your finances, your work situation, a new creative project or anything else. From this place of inquiry, you will begin to grasp the creative genius of what is, and unveil not only its potential beauty, but how perfect it is for you at this time, just as it is. In opening up to the beauty within yourself and your circumstances, you also open up to change. What we accept can change most easily, it is when we resist or deny that change slows down and suffering persists. You can overcome resistance and denial by approaching it with a curious mind and an open heart.
By the way, this oracle has come to you now because you have the power to be a positive influence in whatever situation holds the most meaning for you right now, and you need to know that.
