Ajna Oracle

 

ajna-oracleIf you have drawn this card, a new level of discernment and realization of your dreams is possible. You have the ability to connect to your dharma—your purpose in this lifetime—and to see the deeper layers of what that could mean for you. As John O’Donohue so beautifully writes, “the secret signature and light of our own nature” awaits to be discovered.

Your dreams may be more active now, or perhaps you notice you have a more pronounced ability to sense things before they manifest. You are being called to pay attention to the subtler realms so that you can have access to a more refined experience. Record your dreams, and feel deeply into them for the meanings that they are trying to share. Focus your mind through meditation or prayer, so that clarity and peace become your inner environment. From that state, the messages that lie within and the answers you are seeking will come to light.

The situation at hand is calling upon you to rely on your inner guidance to navigate this time. Ask for Uluka Vahini’s help in showing you the warrior’s way of trust and courage. Remember, it is through going into the darkness that you become accustomed to perceiving in a more heightened way. Because your physical sight is limited here, you must rely on your inner vision and knowing. Like the owl, take flight into the unknown with your connection to the Universe as your strength.

The Teaching

The teaching of this card is that of the need to regularly go beyond the intellect to the place of innate intelligence and intuition that lies within you. It is the place of stillness and heart you can reach through meditation and prayer. Do not be afraid of the great void—a place of primordial beauty, a scintillating darkness that is alive with the recognition that you are not separate. You are connected to the whole and because of that, your every movement is part of the Sacred Dance of Life. Let it guide you. Embracing this place gives you courage and a trust in the Divine that is beyond your usual experience. It is not a place where things are “figured out” but a place where things are revealed and known. Your intuition is the vehicle through which you move from light into darkness and back again, finding your way with your heart. A doorway is opening for you to move more deeply from an intellectual perception to an intuitive one. Now is the time to integrate the two.

May you Walk in Beauty

Abundance Oracle

Dear Friends of Tulku,

A few years ago I began to create an Oracle deck inspired by my Tulku amulets. For me, it is a way to more deeply communicate my experience and my soul connection with the symbolism they embody. Life has taken me on a beautiful, colorful, magically windy trail since then, and I set my project aside to focus on studying Plant Spirit Medicine. But that’s another story. My studies are soon coming to an end, and now I am picking up my project where I left off. Except now I have a lot more to add. This is therefore my commitment to you as my audience to create a new card every month until the deck is done. Here is the first of my offerings, for your pleasure. I welcome any comments and inspiration you would share with me in return!

Blessings,
Karla

ABUNDANCE

Abundance is the nature of the unbounded Universe, reflected in the infinite expressions of Life Itself. “Out of abundance and still abundance remained.”—the Upanishads

oracle

Oracle

If you have drawn the Abundance oracle today, it is a moment to appreciate the great abundance in your life, and give thanks. Your gratitude will make you an open vessel— open to receive and to trust in the Universe. Appreciate the gifts that life is always sharing with you, and you will truly experience abundance. Where there is openness, there is always room to receive— where there is openness, there is always space into which to give.

Trust is key. If there is something that you would like to attract into your life, say a prayer, and let it go. Turn to gratitude and appreciation, and remember that the ways of the Universe are mysterious. Your prayers are heard, how life unfolds has a divine and magical order that is far beyond your imagining.

In your meditation, picture in your minds eye an extraordinary element of nature—such as an exotic bird, or a kangaroo that carries her young in a pouch. Look in detail at the way so many extraordinary elements come together to form this one precious expression of life. Every aspect of who this being is, is natures gift for them to be able to live, survive and thrive as a species.

Allow your mind to pan out and see other amazing beings in the world. Appreciate all the diverse aspects that compose every single one of them. See that there is no end to the way life articulates itself. It is abundant, it is generous, it is boundless in possibilities. Feel this miraculous field of life as it expresses itself in your life, and open your heart in gratitude.

If you are feeling constricted and that you are not getting your needs met, try focusing instead on this gratitude practice. You will begin to see abundance everywhere, and the sense of lack you experience will be absorbed into fullness and happiness.

The situation at hand is showing you how you are feeling in regards to the abundance in your life. If you are striving, cease doing so, for it limits what you experience due to your focus on attainment. If you are walking on a path, head down looking for a feather, you will likely miss the magnificent hawk peering at you from above, the family of deer grazing by your side. Trust that the universe has your back, and if you are meant to have that feather, it will come to you, even while experiencing the wonder of the whole.

When you focus on finding what you don’t have, you experience lack no matter what blessings come into your life. Instead, give thanks for the gifts and see what the universe has in mind for you.

Remember, it is how you receive these gifts that determines whether you are connecting to abundance or not.

The teaching in this card is that Abundance is not limited to the “things” or the money that you have in your life. True abundance is experienced when you feel it in your heart. Remember that during those times when you are in love, overflowing with joy or gratitude, there is no feeling of lack. Cultivate these feelings, and you will experience and attract abundance in your life. True abundance is about feeling fullness, openness and generosity flowing through your heart. It is the generous quality of the overflowing heart filled with gratitude, that you are being called to cultivate now.

Affirmation

“I offer my gratitude into the heart of the universe, and watch as my highest creative potential becomes manifest.”

Tulku Oracle Card #3

The Manipuraka Chakra

 Manipura Oracle“Jewel of the lotus” and “lustrous gem” are names for this chakra—also known as the Solar Plexus or Navel Chakra.  It relates to the pure expression of one’s unique individuality in the physical world.

 The Manipuraka is your energetic and emotional center, the house of your inner fire. It offers up the fuel that gives you the power to accomplish your dreams. This is the furnace that transforms your earthly experience into a spiritual force. Also known by the Taosits as Chi, this energy enables you to meet any challenge, have courage, and set healthy boundaries.

The Manipuraka is where—through your umbilical cord— you were first connected to another. It is where nourishment is absorbed and processed for the rest of your energetic body. When you have a strong Navel chakra, you have a solid sense of self along with a sense of being nourished and protected. You have the ability to transform negative experiences into positive ones, and you feel courageous in expressing your boundaries.

ORACLE

If you have drawn this card, you are being asked to connect to your own personal power. Nourishment in some form is being offered to you, and you must be open and willing to receive it. Whether the energy of the situation in which you find yourself is challenging, delicious, or both, it is coming to you as an answer to what you have been asking for, in order to feel strong and accomplish the lessons that you need to grow.

Make some time to have a conversation with Laxmi. Ask for her help in keeping your inner fire bright and burning strong. Pray for her blessings in transforming your experience into one that is alive with the beauty of new growth, abundance and possibility.

The situation at hand is calling on you to regard this moment as an opportunity to experience your own personal power, and to express it. Perhaps you are finding the voice that you need to state your boundaries. Do not be afraid of your own strength.

Tulku Oracle Card #2

Swadisthana Oracle

TULKUSEXORACLEThe teaching in this card is that of connecting to the creative aspect of the lifeforce within you. One way to connect to this energy is to make a conscious commitment to be aware of the ebb and flow of feelings within you. These feelings are a direct reflection of your experience in the world, and when you pay attention to them, they will show you a clear pathway to your source.

As you experience your feelings and feel the energy there—feel the love that underlies them and is always trying to teach you. Walk in nature and connect to the creative force living within everything around you. As you walk, ask Vajrayogini and her divine dance to help circulate the emotions through you. Know that you are ready to transform them now, into positive catalysts for creativity and growth.

Move forward into creation, with the strength of your self awareness behind you, and the potent flow of love within you.

 

 

Affirmation

I create, I am attractive.
I am creative and expansive.
I deeply connect to others without losing myself.

 

Tulku Oracle Card #1

I am in the process of creating an amulet card deck, which will be used as a divination system. I am calling it the TULKU ORACLE.

As I write the oracles, I will upload them onto this page. I encourage you to share your thoughts and impressions. I also love to hear your experiences with your amulets.
They may be included as inspirations for the oracle!

CARD 1
The Muladhara

The MuladharaIf you have drawn this card, you are attracting the energy of spiritual practice, groundedness and connection. In your meditation today, focus on the muladhara, —take an energetic journey—allowing your awareness to spiral deep into the earth. Allow yourself to  feel the flow of energy linking you to your source, your roots, and your tradition.

Here you can meet Ganesh and ask for his help in allowing you to feel solidly connected to the earth and to the nourishment of the Mother. In his powerful presence you have the knowledge that through your alignment with the divine—expressing itself from the very roots of your being— you have the help of the gods in removing all obstacles to your growth.

You can pull from this energy and be reminded that you have support when you are going through trying times or cycles of transformation.

The teaching in this card is a reminder to ground yourself in meditation. Now is a time when the awareness of the presence of your ancestors and the interconnectedness of all beings is more available to you. Become open and aware of the vitality they and the Universe wants to share with you, which is part of your inheritance. Take it in. The moment is now.

Affirmation
I connect, I am supported
I am grounded in the physical plane and am connected to the whole of Life.
