Oracle Guidance for the month of June 2019
Iceberg - Submerged
This card first made me laugh when it turned over as we are having a much cooler than usual June in our region (West of Montreal, Quebec, Canada)! Thankfully not quite at the ice forming level but still cooler. It is however good for getting people to realize that things are changing with our climate overall. Some differences happen naturally from year to year and others are an impact of the overall climate change situation.
Aside from bringing awareness to our climate needs and the protective efforts required to help our planet at this point, which are extremely valuable and every individual must play their part in it, let’s see what else this card wants to guide us with this month.
Impact – More than meets the eye…
When you first think of an iceberg, you likely immediately think of the ice that is visible above the surface. One of the great shipping tragedy stories reminds us to look below the surface as well. What is visible above is only a part of the entire story as the ice goes to great depths and widths below the water’s surface.
In our lives, when we look at things from a surface perspective only, we can be more prone to judge and to think we know the situation without all the details. It is the depth that gives us a greater understanding. When we are not able to seek all the information about the deeper components, we can remind ourselves to release judgement and quick conclusions because we are only seeing a part of the story.
In this image the two icebergs are floating near each other or into each other. Through them we have a window into the distance where we see land or a glacier platform. Perspectives can change and through them, we gain new information. As these two icebergs come closer together the vision to the horizon will be blocked. Some with closed minded or limited understanding will say there is nothing beyond them, others with different knowing will have already seen what is beyond so can speak to it, and others still may not have seen it but may have vision or imagination to give insights different than the others. Each perspective is valuable in its own way and can show us how within a few moments what we thought we knew is suddenly changed completely.
This is currently the case with climate change. There are all different views from all perspectives. The biggest challenge is that very few people are listening to each other. Patience and understanding, plus the willingness to listen are limited and delays any progress forward. Solving problems needs different perspectives but it also needs an openness to see from each other’s point of view and to remember what the greater vision and goals are.
In your personal life, see where you are blocking your own vision. You seek a balance between being in the moment with what is right in front of you and what you are experiencing as well as what is deeper within you and what is the vision forward. Having only one of these may limit your experiences and joy. Each person is different though and will have different balance needs. If you are enjoying and experiencing with your full being then continue! You are in a good balance for you at this time! If you are feeling limited or blocked then consider this image. What is above the surface for you, in your face, being lived, possibly being judged, thoughts, history, etc.? What is deeper that is perhaps to notice and become aware of? See and feel if this will add to your experience or release some of the blockage. Then the vision up ahead, seen or unseen. Where are you going, what are you striving for, what excites you about your future? Having this balance is important. Only living for the future may be a trap that unbalances the present and reduces joy of the now.
And then, when all is in balance, what are your spectacular experiences in life? For some, the icy cold of the Arctic and Antarctic are dangerous and barren. For others they are unique and crystalline with fantastic view and life exploding in unique and wondrous ways. Approach your life similarly. What is being presented as a challenge to you in your life? And what is unique, amazing, and incredible to experience? Through one you may find the other. Shifting your perspective to open up to different points of view about your life may also nurture you to be more patient with yourself and have less judgement. For example, would someone else find aspects of your life absolute gifts? Things they have been longing for? Would aspects of what represents challenge for you actually be deep blessings for another? Shifting your perspective in this can make a difference in how you feel and in how you approach your daily life.
Were there to be an impact of these icebergs, what would happen? When you are challenged and struggling but still have a vision, still have deep needs, allow yourself to play the game of the impact. What might happen if…? What would be the impact if…? This may seem scary but can also be very empowering as it takes away the doubt and the fear of the unknown by creating possible scenarios. With these created, your perspective automatically shifts and more information is made available to you.
The meeting of the icebergs…
For those who are seeking a deep relationship to start, this card is a reminder this month to open yourself and your perspective up. Are you too focused on the match you think you need or where you will meet that person? Are you still thinking too often about a previous partner that it is blocking your view of another who may come into the picture? Are you desiring connection but have closed off parts of you in case you may get hurt? For this last one, let some of the deep fire come back into your life. Let it colour your cheeks and colour-shade your eyes to see good in the world and joy again. You may find someone who has also been hurt too but you want to meet them when you are both looking up and aware of the progress you are making, not only sitting in the icy depths of despair. Smile, they just might be watching you.
