With the onset of Halloween (Samhain) and the Day of the Dead, much of the world currently recognizes that we are entering the 'dark season.' Messages continue to come through showing the parallels between what is happening in the natural world and what is happening in our spiritual lives. When I see Spirit repeat themes such as this, I often ask: 'What is coming, Spirit?' 'Why do you keep repeating messages about hope and light in the darkness?'
I believe that this may be a little more involved than Spirit simply saying: 'Cheer up, things will get better.' I feel this has to do with the pandemic and the coming winter months in relation to COVID-19 and RSV cases. I 100 percent believe in and advocate for the vaccine. I am vaccinated and boosted and believe that vaccination is the answer (and has been the answer) to pandemics. And I have a rare genetic condition, auto-immune disorders are something I regularly deal with, and more than one of my children and family members have suffered legitimate side effects from vaccinations. STILL, I RECOMMEND THE VACCINE. I lost my aunt to Covid-19 and people need to stop focusing on conspiracy theories and focus on facts.
With that said, I felt in my spirit that we are being given a warning and a message of hope. We are not to live our lives in fear of the unknown, however; navigating these dark days of the pandemic can be difficult, trying, and stressful.
Our beautiful message of hope reminds us that there is no situation that can overshadow the light of the human spirit. There is no darkness that the light will not scatter. We are made of stars; we are stardust. When we are surrounded by darkness, WE ARE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES.
No matter how down you may feel, refuel your light. Go to Spirit and refill your lamp. If you are having difficulty letting your light shine, then you need to spend time with Source. It's so easy. Simply close your eyes, breathe, relax, and listen. Open your heart to Spirit and Spirit will not let you down.
The message on YouTube (I have embedded it below) speaks about the Light in the Unexpected. This message refers to challenges or situations that suddenly show up unexpectedly. Sometimes these situations are minor setbacks (such as the five of coins or pentacles in the tarot deck) but other times they may be full major arcana Tower moments. It's hard to find the light in the darkness and some succumb to the darkness and simply give up. People may make matters worse by focusing on the confusion they feel rather than finding their way out of the situation.
The light is always there. The darkness never extinguishes the light and there is no situation that you can ever face that there isn't a way out of it. Unfortunately, sometimes the only way out is through, but that doesn't mean you are alone on your journey. You are also never left empty-handed and without the light of Spirit to guide you along the way.
It is humanity's journey to go through trials and difficulties as this is how we develop our character. The dark times will come; that is guaranteed. But we are not to fear these times. It is through these periods that we lift up our lights, illuminate our path, and begin our journeys carefully and meticulously. We will make it through.
Do not give up. Spirit will never give up on you.

Good morning and welcome to Fractal Flowers. It is November 2, 2022, and we are officially welcoming the season of darkness. I hope you had a wonderful Halloween or Samhain, whichever celebration you prefer and now we are in the wonderful, autumn month of November. I will use several autumn-themed decks throughout this month to bring you daily messages from Spirit. As leaves and flowers fall to the ground and decay, we are reminded of the cycles of life that include death and rebirth. Without death, there is no room for something new to grow in its place. As we welcome autumn and prepare for winter, we often focus on many Americanized holidays such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Many of these holidays draw their roots from pagan festivals and it is important to remember where our celebrations come from. Halloween, Samhain, and All Souls' Day (celebrated on November 2) all stem from pagan festivals and rituals that celebrate, recognize and honor those who have passed beyond the veil.
I pulled one card for you today from my Autumn's Delight Oracle Deck. You will see this deck repeatedly throughout the months of September, October and November and it is perfect for all things autumn, Samhain, and November readings. Not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving and I will celebrate the holiday by focusing on gratitude and a spirit of giving.
The card I pulled for you today from Autumn's Delight Oracle Deck. The card is 'Creation.' You may think its strange that Spirit chose 'Creation' when we globally celebrate the festival of the dead, but it makes great sense.
Death is always followed by creation and this is evidenced in our plants and flowers. In autumn, plants, flowers, and trees shed their leaves or blooms and often fall to the ground in a process of death and release. Trees give up their nuts and many people celebrate harvest feasts during the months of autumn as they collect bounties that will sustain them throughout the winter months. After the vast emptiness of winter comes new creation and new life in spring.
It may be said that nature releases the things that no longer serve during autumn in preparation for the new life that blossoms forth in spring.
Is this reflective of your own life? I hear Spirit saying to you: 'What is it that you need to let go of during this season of darkness?' 'What no longer serves you as you ready yourself for your new creation? When you set your intentions and purpose to manifest something in your life, are you not in the process of creation? Just as the Oak tree releases her acorns every year in order to prepare for new growth, you too must release things that you can no longer hold on to. This is the process of creation but one many try to skip over. It isn't enough to set your intentions or quote your affirmations. You must first do the hard work of releasing those things (situations, beliefs, even toxic relationships) that hold you back and hinder your growth.
You must protect your intention as a pregnant woman guards and nourishes her own womb which is the host for new life. A wise woman feeds her embryo the highest quality nutrients and avoids/shuns those things that are harmful or jeopardize the new life within. Guard the seed of creation as you grow it to fruition. Protect that seed as Spirit germinates your ideas and watch the miracle of creativity bring your intention through the many stages of necessary growth until it manifests and becomes reality.
November also is a month that is linked to apples which represent immortality. In many traditions, it is common to leave apples on your doorstep in order to welcome your spirit loved ones into your home. Throughout this month, consider bringing apples into your home and enjoy them in their many forms. Apples have many metaphysical properties and are commonly seen in Halloween and Samhain rituals but are also common throughout the months of November and even into December.
Apples are a common theme in numerous myths ranging from Ancient Greek and Rome to fairy tales and the Garden of Eden. Apples are very 'witchy' as they contain seeds that comprise a pentagram.
Apples are tools used in divination and if you are familiar with the Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples, you've witnessed a practice that began as a divination game for determining whom someone would marry.
Though apples are associated with Mabon (September) and Samhain (October 31-November 1) you will find apples throughout the month of November as this fruit is recognized and revered for its many physical and metaphysical properties.
Have you put out apples for your Spirit loved ones? What are you ready to release in your life as you prepare for the new period of growth and creation that will comes as you move through the season of darkness into the season of light?
Check out the following video clip below showing some Day of the Dead celebrations.

Winter is all about protection and using the things that were stored up during the harvest for sustenance. As we await the new growth of spring, we enter this season prepared and ready for to let spirit do the releasing work in us so that we create room for new growth.
Jack-o'-lanterns (or will-o'-the-wisps) have been lit for centuries to keep dark spirits (often mischievous fae or sprites) from wreaking havoc on one's life. Lit jack-o'-lanterns are used to provide protection of the home where they are adorned.
Do you need protection today? Yesterday are message was 'Zombie' and we received Spirit's messages about living life to the fullest and being a pro-active, participant in your life. Now, we see our message is protection. Do you feel safe and secure? Do you believe that you can achieve the life that you want and that there is nothing to fear as you go after your dreams? Do you know within your heart that you are truly safe from all harm?
There is great peace that comes when you accept Spirit's love and realize that there is nothing anyone can do to you to truly harm you. Bring in the white light of Spirit multiple times per day and grow that energy as a super strong, impenetrable barrier that surrounds and protects you. Do you protect yourself and your home with charms, spells, herbs, and crystals? If not, then start now.
Maybe you don't need spiritual protection but physical protection. Do you need to set up boundaries in your life? Are people taking advantage of you? Are you dealing with people who do not have your best interest at heart? Jack-o'-lantern says that it is time for you to think of yourself first and ensure that you are being protected. Spirit offers you all the protection you need. Make sure to work with your spirit team and let your guardian angels know what you need. Call upon Archangel Michael for your protection needs.
Here is a white light meditation that will help you call on Archangel Michael for protection and purification.

Hello and welcome to Fractal Flowers. Today is Saturday, October 29, 2022, and I have pulled our oracle card for the day. Our message comes from the Celtic Tree Oracle deck and the card is the Fearn Alder. This oracle deck features the Celtic Ogham tree language and the sacred tree we are focusing on is Alder which is represented by Fearn. You may see the ogham and picture featuring the Alder leaf to the left. Though the picture features the card upright, our message is reversed.
The Alder tree speaks to us about bringing ourselves into harmony and balance. This may include keeping our male and feminine energies in balance, but you will want to inspect yourself and your recent actions. Have you been acting in balance and harmony? Are your actions in line with your core beliefs?
Alder speaks to us about the importance of psychic development and our connection to our Spirit Team for guidance, knowledge, and wisdom. Your Spirit Team is multi-faceted and includes ancestors, friends, and loved ones who have crossed into spirit, spirit guides including ascended masters, spirit animals, fairies, and angels, spirit helpers from the astral plane, and God. Take time in meditation to hear their wisdom and guidance for you.
Pay attention to additional ways Spirit is speaking to you today. This could include signs in nature including animal life, synchronicities, and your dreams. Trust your intuition and don't doubt your own spiritual power and psychic connections to Spirit.
Bring all aspects of your life into balance and you see that the answers you seek lie within.
You may see a video speaking about the sacred Celtic Alder tree below.

Hello and welcome to Fractal Flowers. Today is Thursday, October 27, 2022, and I pulled a card for you today. Our message is from the Animal Spirit oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid and it is number 49, Rabbit Spirit. I've included a photo of our card upright, however; today's message is reversed. That means that it is a protective message and we may need to make some personal adjustments in our lives in order to reap all of the blessings Spirit has in store for us. The message that accompanies Rabbit Spirit is 'Now is a lucky time.' You may see a photo of Rabbit Spirit to the left.
There is a new opportunity awaiting you and Spirit is saying it is time to take a leap of faith. You are beginning a new journey and in your heart, you are ready for the adventure, but you are afraid. It takes a huge boost of courage to trust that you will be okay when you venture into unforeseen territory. Rabbit Spirit offers the assurance that you can make this jump because this is a prosperous time of blessings and new beginnings.
Trust in your partnership with Spirit and let faith guide and lead you as you move forward on your journey. Don't let fear stop you from experiencing all the blessings that are yours to enjoy. Don't stay in the dark afraid to step into the sunlight because you aren't sure what you'll find.
Rabbit Spirit also encourages you to adopt a playful, fun spirit as you embrace the unknown yet trust in Spirit as you move forward on your journey. There is a carefree nature that comes when you lose your inhibitions and find your faith. You are a co-creator in this life with Spirit. Find your faith and take action as you leap into your new destiny. Spirit will not let you fall.
You deserve to live the life you've dreamed of. Don't let fear or anxiety hold you back.
Here is a wonderful white light meditation from the Honest Guys that will help you stay grounded knowing you are safe and secure as you overcome doubt, fears, and anxiety and realize your goals.

As an energy healer, I understand the importance of bringing in the white light of the Holy Spirit through the crown chakra and purifying my spirit, soul, mind, will, emotions, and physical body. I also know the importance of growing, clearing, and cleansing my chakras, down to the root that is connected to the red ruby crystal pulsating at the center of the earth...where we are connected to our great Mother Earth. What I want to speak about is working with God's energy for the highest good of all.
Of course, this message may not be literal and can simply mean that you are on your spiritual journey and to be prepared for a new level of growth and understanding.

Sometimes in life, people make mistakes, learn their lesson then move on. Chestnut Bud appears in our reading today to say at other times, we fail to learn lessons and continually make the same mistakes. This is an unhealthy and destructive pattern that results in stagnation and failure to grow or move forward. Spirit is asking us to do a quick inventory and see if there are any situations in our lives we repeat. If we are always ending up in the same place, it's because we haven't learned to travel in a different direction. Many of us continue driving down a dead-end street trying to get to a different destination. It simply will not happen.
In order to reach our goals, we have to map out the correct course. When we take a wrong turn, we must receive the information with self-awareness and admit that we made a mistake. Then we start over and follow the map correctly. If we continue to follow the same wrong path, we will never reach our goal.
How many times have you found yourself in the same situation? They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. If you continue to find yourself in the same situation, then it is time to make some necessary changes.
Chestnut Bud comes in today to say don't be afraid to course correct. Yes, you will first need to accept your mistake with humility, receive information to help you find your path, and then course correct but what is the alternative? Are you going to stay stuck and stagnant because your pride is too great?
There can be a sense of failure experienced by those who don't want to recognize their mistakes and begin again. You must not look at your past mistakes as failures but as grand opportunities to start over. Ask yourself how wonderful you will feel once you course correct and start moving forward in life. There is nothing to be gained from staying stuck in limiting situations that leave you feeling trapped, unable to move freely, and living without joy. You are a wonderful, magical creature who deserves to enjoy life to the fullest. It's time to break free from the things that have you bound, trapped, and stuck. Move forward in joy, happiness, and freedom. You deserve it!
Please enjoy this guided meditation from the Honest Guys that will help you focus on letting go of the past and moving forward on your spiritual journey through life.

Hello and welcome to Fractal Flowers. It is Sunday, October 23, 2022, and today's oracle reading is from the Oracle of the Roses. this is a beautiful deck by Cheralyn Darcey and features 44 roses. Today's message is number 34 and the rose is the Madame Abel Chatenay. Our message is 'The Self' and you may see a picture of today's card to the right.
Spirit is asking us to examine our thought patterns, practices, behaviors, and beliefs. We cannot grow and expand if we are unwilling to look at ourselves through the careful lens of self-examination.
We must strive to bring ourselves into alignment with Spirit and our higher selves by being honest and open with ourselves. If there are behaviors, habits, or negative thought patterns that are holding us back we must identify these and rectify them.
You must be assured and confident that you are connected to Spirit and have the ability within yourself to solve problems and course-correct when you go astray. Spending time in meditation is often the key to those moments in life when one feels overburdened, stressed, and filled with anxiety. Instead, take time to stop, reflect, and spend time in meditation for it is often within that we find the answers to the outside problems we face.
Have you been hard on yourself? Have you doubted your strength, your confidence, and your ability to problem solve, or do you feel that your best simply isn't good enough? You have everything that you need to accomplish your dreams, goals, and visions within you. You are your own superhero, but you must begin by having a healthy sense of self-esteem. Also, ensure that you are living your life in balance.
As human beings, we live our lives according to various cycles and rhythms and sometimes these are out of balance. Meditation will help you find your balance once again and reconnect you with yourself, your mind, your higher self, and with Spirit.
Do you believe that you have the answers within you to the problems you face? If you are still in doubt about your awesomeness, stop and think about previous times you have problem-solved and found solutions to situations on your own. This is no different. No matter what you are facing, you have the tools to solve the problem.
Our beautiful Madame Abel Chatenay rose blooms bountiful and reminds us we too grow, blossom, and bloom like the rose.

Hi and welcome to Fractal Flowers. It is Saturday, October 22, 2022, and I will give messages from Spirit using multiple oracle decks. Here is a photo of today's reading and a breakdown of each oracle deck and the card drawn. Several cards in today's reading are reversed. This means that Spirit has either an alignment task for us or is offering a protection message.
Here are today's cards drawn for our Fractal Flowers oracle reading.
- The Mother (17): The Oracle of the Roses
- Water Violet (34): The Flowers Oracle
- Magical Gateway: Oracle of the Fairies
- Aine (reversed) (1): Goddess Power Oracle Deck
- Brown Bear Spirit (reversed) (9): Spirit Animal Oracle
- Druid: Angels and Ancestors Oracle Deck
- Straif Blackthorn (reversed) (14): Celtic Tree Oracle
- Sage: The Witches' Kitchen
Oracle of the Roses: The Mother
Cybele: The Phrygian Goddess, The Mother of all Gods
The Flowers Oracle: Water Violet
Many of these people prefer their company to others and seemingly do very well by being alone. They are self-reliant, confident, and are perfectly content without opening up their lives to others, but this isn't what Spirit has planned for them. If you are in this situation yet still feel pangs of loneliness, Spirit wants you to know that you are never truly alone. By examining your heart and healing any past hurts, you can lower your guard and find your way to truly opening your heart to those whom you wish to have a deeper relationship with. Not only this, but you will find that your love for humanity will increase and you can enjoy a deeper relationship with Spirit, a more grounded connection to Mother Earth and all of her inhabitants, and find a new connection with other people.
Dr. Bach Flower Remedy: Water Violet
Oracle of the Fairies: Magical Gateway
The key to walking through the magical gateway to the fairy realm is found in your heart. Do you believe that fairies are real?

Friday, October 21, 2022
Hello and welcome to Fractal Flowers. Today is Friday, October 21, 2022, and I am giving messages from Spirit using my oracle and tarot decks. Part of this reading will be on the blog and the other part will take place live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
If you have questions regarding one of plants, flowers, goddesses, or animal types in these readings, please use the Wikipedia app to the right of these blog posts and search for more information.
I am starting with eight oracle decks. They are as follows.
- The Lover (24): The Oracle of the Roses
- Gorse (13): The Flowers Oracle
- Wait for Winter: Oracle of the Fairies
- Yuki Onna (upright) (52): Goddess Power Oracle Deck
- Dolphin Spirit (20): Spirit Animal Oracle
- Star Ancestor: Angels and Ancestors Oracle Deck
- Nuin Ash (reversed) (5): Celtic Tree Oracle
- Apple: The Witches' Kitchen
Oracle of the Roses: The Lover
Next, you want to live a life that is in balance and in alignment, that shows the love you have for others, the world, and the environment (animals, plants, Mother Earth), and next you want to show yourself a healthy sense of love. Some may say that your love for Spirit and love for yourself walk hand-in-hand and is actually the first on the list because if you can't love yourself, you won't show love to your neighbors and your environment. It is by cultivating a loving relationship with Spirit (the God of your own understanding) that you will learn how to truly love yourself and love others as well.
Flowers Oracle: Gorse

Oracle of the Fairies: Wait for Winter
this message lets us know that within approximately two months' time, there is going to be a spiritual breakthrough and to stand in faith, hope, and remain steadfast.
You have 61 days! What miracles can you and Spirit manifest in 61 days? Make sure the things you manifest are for the highest good of all and under Spirit's divine plan of love. Take action now. Remove any spiritual (or physical) blocks that have stopped you from reaching your goal. Strategize, get focused, and work on your plan. Together, you and Spirit can co-create miracles!
Goddess Power Oracle: Yuki-Onna (Upright)
non-action and encourages you to stand still as you wait for your intentions to bring forth your manifestations. Today's reading has repeatedly spoke about our manifestations coming to pass during winter. No matter where you are reading this from, the messages from Spirit indicate that we can expect our manifestations to materialize in approximately 61 days.
The Spirit Animal Oracle: Dolphin Spirit
There are always lessons to be learned in life and Dolphin Spirit reminds us that nothing in life is so simple that it is all negative or all positive. By keeping your heart humble and open to Spirit, you will see the sun through the storms and know that no matter what comes your way, the sun will shine again.
