I love affirmations and use “oracle” decks to provide a positive boost in the morning or whenever I need a lift. It’s my way of telling the Universe I’m open to listening to their message: “Have at it!” “I’m listening!” “Tell me more!” I hope you enjoy as I introduce some of my favorite cards and quotes in my newsletters! These make great gifts for any occasion as well as can be used as inspirational hand-outs in class if you are a yoga instructor.
I chose this month’s deck because it answered a long-standing question I’d had about a quick chakra reading Cyndi Dale had given me. See the “Chakrascope” section above for more.
This deck refers to a second heart chakra that’s magenta. I had “pulled” the “Sacred Lotus Flower Card” which I’m highlighting below. I found a second card referencing the magenta heart chakra and am highlighting that as well for emphasis. The art on this deck alone is inspiring, as you can see. The author’s insight is priceless. I show both the back side (the “suit”) of the cards as well as the beautiful front sides and then give you the description of the cards from the accompanying book.
The Sacred Lotus Flower.
The card of innermost healing and love: the Heart Chakra
Legend has it that the lotus was the first flower to beautify the earth; it is therefore considered sacred. Rooted in earth, growing in water, and opening each morning to air and sun, the flower links to all four elements and because part of its mystery is hidden, it also represents quintessence and ancient wisdom. It is also a symbol of spiritual rebirth and eternity, the key to which is the love in your own heart. There are two heart chakras, and you must work on these chakras with the help of Pistis Sophia and Haniel.
The green chakra represents love of a personal nature, i.e. of partner, friends, and family. Perhaps this has been closed or damaged by rejection or loss. The angels help you resolve pain with forgiveness, reopening and healing the green chakra, enabling you to move to the magenta chakra. This encompasses pure, universal love, which has no self-interest but merely seeks to serve all life. When you can feel universal love, you ignite your heart’s ember into a magenta flame, which soars heavenward to reconnect you with the golden (Maitreya) ray of divine love. This love flows back to your heart, into your innermost consciousness, opening the gateway to Higher self and filling you with joy and bliss beyond imagining.
Haniel, Angel Ruler of Friday, Venus, and the Emerald and Magenta Rays.
The card of love, compassion, and beauty
Haniel’s card teaches that there are two kinds of love and so two heart chakras in ou7r body. The first is love of a personal nature, the love you have for a partner, friends, family and yourself; this is strengthened by Haniel’s emerald ray which powers the green chakra. Jade can help to balance relationships and heal quarrels, while malachite defuses situations.
The other love is the magenta ray of unconditional love and compassion for all things on Mother Earth, whatever their faults, as made by the Creator. It does not judge and has no limits. It radiates to and from the pink heart chakra of universal love, bridge between Lower and Higher self.
Haniel suggests you heal your heart with these rays of love by appreciating the beauty within yourself and all things. Increase self-fulfillment through finding ways of expressing love, and celebrate your existence by creating your own form of beauty around you. Let this beauty infuse your spirit, choosing rose quartz or tourmaline to enhance this loving energy, so that it surrounds you with calm and lights you with radiance from within, inspiring others to want it for themselves. Haniel reminds you that Love is all you need.
Description: This Angel Card set was first published in 2002 and is as valid today as it was then. It’s for those who wish to start to change their lives by working with angels every day, in other words to seek spiritual expansion through communing daily with angels (the principle of Angelology). Can be used on its own, or with the later card sets (Heart & Soul and Love & Light) for more profound and deeper guidance.
A reading with the Harmony Angel Cards will give you future direction if that is what you seek. However, more importantly, it will show you the way to heal problem areas for yourself and your loved ones, paving the way to spiritual development, so that you can make the connection from your Lower to your Higher Self by opening your heart to unconditional love.
These cards will indicate:
- The main angels to enrich your daily life towards wholeness
- The angels supporting you towards self-fulfillment in life
- Your personal angel pathway to harmony of mind, body and spirit
- The symbols you need for healing and spiritual re-birth
There are 48 Harmony Angel Healing Cards divided into four suits of 12. Each suit comprises a special master card, plus eleven other cards. You can choose various layouts involving some or all of the different suits. Several spreads are detailed, showing one card, three and four cards, the sacred seven and finally the sacred twelve spread.
Remember that when invoked from the heart with loving intent the angels will bring their special energy to you, to help you towards physical and spiritual wholeness. This involves healing and harmonizing all body energy chakras. Another way of saying this is that any healing required in your Lower (physical) Self should be addressed before moving towards healing your heart chakras, which in turn are the bridge to your Higher (spiritual) Self. This may take a little time and practice, but the more you open towards universal love and angelic energy the more you will receive. Making the Higher Self connection integrates you to the collective consciousness or the All, bringing you into a state of inner peace to which you can always return..
