Plate of Inspiration (09/01) – Magical and Manifestation

20160109 Magic Manifestation

How was the first week of 2016 for you? I can’t believe we’re a week in already!

This week’s Plate of Inspiration is about Magic and Manifestation.

The message from Welsh Goddess Rhiannon is that we are all magical, and can manifest our clear intentions into reality.

She says that if we have been indoors too long we can recapture our personal power by simply stepping outside into nature. This simple motion will do us the world of good in reawakening our magical, spiritual nature. Allow the light of the sun, the moon, and the stars to stir ancient memories that may be dormant.

She calls for us to recall the times of our magical abilities, and then put them to use immediately for the good of the entire planet; to take up our spiritual arms and move with swift speed into the night, awakening one and all to the magic that is life itself.

The other meanings of this card can include: Have absolute faith that your dream is manifested; make a clear decision; put your energy into manifesting your dreams; know that you deserve to receive good; keep your thoughts focused on your desire and away from fear.

On the left hand side of the plate is the Vision Mandala Sacred Symbol Stone. This mandala’s associated spirit animal is the white tiger. She brings her clarity of vision and her wide spectrum of awareness. This mandala represents the ability to visualise our future; keep focus, set clear intentions and keep the faith.

On the right hand side of the plate is the Opportunity Mandala Sacred Symbol Stone. Governed by the element of fire, it’s associated spirit animal is the woodpecker. He brings his optimistic and determined approach to life. This mandala represents the ability to seize the day; to create great new opportunities.

Messages from the angels remind us to follow our purpose with courage.

Nuumite and Lapis Lazuli bring some beautiful crystal magic to the plate.

Nuumite is the “sorcerer’s” stone and is a powerful protector against ill wishing and psychic manipulation. It assists in seeing beyond the outer facade, creating an inner landscape to be traversed.

Lapis Lazuli both opens the third-eye chakra and balances the throat chakra. It stimulates enlightenment and enhances dream work and psychic abilities, facilitating spiritual journeying.

I wish you a magical week!
