Oracle of the Week: 14 - 21 April 2024 – Create the Unexpected

Oracle of the Week: 14 - 21 April 2024 – Create the Unexpected

In keeping with April’s apparently trending theme of sea spirits, this week, we are being guided by the Seahorse Spirit. Seahorses are amazing creatures – some species have mastered the art of camouflage almost as well as the octopus, and in all species, it is the male who carries the eggs and cares for the young. Rather unexpected, indeed, although as we have seen by now, nature abhors the human concept of traditional gender roles! It is in this spirit that the seahorse asks us to set ourselves free, and in order to do so, we need to change, well, everything!

31.  Seahorse Spirit – Create the Unexpected

 

From the guidebook - the sacred meaning of this card:  Surprise yourself and others; do the opposite of what you normally do; be daring and funny; evoke laughter; discover a new version of yourself; shake or spice things up

The Seahorse Spirit is here to tell us that we are the culmination of a lifetime (so far!) of many messages – familial, societal, and personal – that have combined to form our view of the world around us, and of ourselves. But what if, hear us out here, what we believe to be true can be changed?

To do this, Seahorse Spirit wants us to shake things up. Completely re-wire our circuitry, if you will. For those of you with anxiety, this can be especially difficult, and we don’t pretend that it’s otherwise. Yet if we stick to what we know, and what we “know” is true, we form a very rigid outlook on life. If we want to spark new things, new joys, new projects, or new versions of ourselves, we have to undo current connections, and re-wire them in new ways.

To get you started, try a meditation where you visualize completely absurd (to you) combinations of different options for your new reality. Be as bold, as silly, as out there as you want to be! This doesn’t mean that, say, you’ll start bathing in the kitchen sink every day, or washing dishes in the toilet, but that also doesn’t mean you can’t imagine doing just that!

Imagine a life where you’ve taken the initiative to do something completely different, playful perhaps, and out of your comfort zone. Then, start writing things down. Flesh out how you can break free and begin to implement an actionable plan to add a new spark, spice, and playful freedom to your life.

For those of you just joining us on this journey, we are using Justine Serebrin's Sacred Sea Oracle: Dive into the Depths of Your Cosmic Soul.

This deck is absolutely stunning and is a perfect guide for us as we navigate 2024.
