Notes from the Ether – November 18, 2013


For this week’s message I’m using the Angel Dreams Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. Although these are meant to provide messages and meanings to dream symbols, I feel that they are just as useful to provide messages for regular readings. The message this week is about owning your personal power, to follow your own journey, and get guidance along the way.



Yellow is the color of the 3rd Chakra – the solar plexus. This is your position of personal power, of taking control of your life and being yourself. This card is giving the message that now, more than ever, it is important to step into your personal power, to take back what is yours and truly become who you are meant to be. Using a citrine stone can help you work on this area. Just hold the stone to your solar plexus, the area just above your belly button, and visualize a bright yellow light, giving you that wake up call to stop living the life you have settled for and to step up and take control of your journey.


Now that you’re on the way to taking back your personal power, it’s time to start on that path where you are truly living your purpose. Everyone’s journey is uniquely theirs and only you can decide what that journey will be. You can do things the easy way and take the long way around, just following the outskirts of your purpose until you have the courage to enter. Or you can just walk right on in and take on everything, knowing that this is the right thing for you, even with all the bumps and bruises. Yes, it might be safer to stay on the outskirts but it will take you a lot longer to get where you’re going. Are you brave enough to just step right on in and take what comes?


The sun is a major element in our lives, it gives us life and warmth and growth. It also brings us light to find our way out of the darkness. It has been a symbol of life in many cultures, many of whom worshipped it like a God. The message for this card is to find that light to illuminate your path, to help you grow as you move forward, to bring the Divine into your life to give you guidance so you can see what steps to take next. Allow that energy to come into your life to help you. I get the message that using a carnelian can help you bring this sun energy in to guide you.


Feel your personal power and embrace it, know that only you have true control over your life. Follow your true path, knowing that there may be bumps along the way but you can take whatever comes at you. Find the Divine in your life to help illuminate your path and give you the guidance to move in the right direction.

    Renee, I love your creative use of the Angel Dreams Oracle Cards! It rings true that our lives are a different type of dream, and we can gain valuable insights from the symbols all around us! The other day I saw a deer in the back yard. He looked up at me but then kept feeding. He had beautiful antlers! This to me this symbolized a gentle invitation to adventure.
