Ascended Master Mataji & Crimson Cuprite: “Relief and Repair”
“We bring you the blessing of relief and repair. Our warmth and nurturing will restore and rebalance your body, mind and soul when the light of spirit burns too brightly. Spiritual light is like the light of the sun. It brings life and joy, but too much can burn. If that happens to you, you will feel overwhelmed, overheated, overexcited or overstretched mentally, physically or emotionally. We will help you recover and increase your ability to be exposed to spiritual light again in future without becoming overloaded or burnt out. We ask you to soften and relax into our rich red energy now, which nurtures you with the cooling, restorative life force of the Earth Mother. We shall help you naturally discharge excess energy, whilst we revive, strengthen and fortify you with our nourishing grace.”
“On the path of light there are many highs – beautiful visions, stunning inspirations and transcendent experiences of bliss, love and peace. It can feel amazing! Yet like the uplifting and inspiring light of the sun, it is possible to have more of a good thing than you can handle at any one time! Over exposure to the spiritual light feels great for a moment and then terrible afterwards. The body and mind can feel burnt out, overloaded and confused – the great high followed by a dreadful low. You may feel emotionally unstable and even overwhelmed by so many inspirations but with no real plan as to how you can bring them to life with methodical, practical steps. The spiritual light can help you live your divine destiny, but for it to shine bright and how you the way, rather than burn you, you must learn how to balance your love for the light with devotion and care for your body.
The calling in of spiritual assistance is a key aspect to spiritual growth. The energy of your spirit, your guides and angels, is very real and is the equivalent of turning on more light in your soul house. Whilst more light can make it easier to see what you are looking for (and that is so often right in front of you!), if you have too much light going on, especially over a long period of time, you may unwittingly cause the circuits to ignite and burn down the house. You don’t want this to happen because it doesn’t feel good and it doesn’t help you on your path. You need enough light to see and grow by, but not so much that it becomes more important to you than the need to care for and respect your body.
There are times when the body just needs softness and time to simply be and express itself in a spontaneous, carefree way. It needs to be like a little child, happy and allowed to pay and feel good. It needs to switch off from thinking about spiritual matters and doing healing work now and then. You need discipline to continue to grow on the spiritual path and to heal yourself, and if you can balance that discipline with a self-loving, self-caring attitude, it will not be so difficult to keep it up.
The Oracle of Relief and Repair comes with a message about your spiritual growth. You may or may not be aware of it, but you are learning to call more spiritual light into your body, your mind and your life. Perhaps you have been praying to the Universe more, asking for help. Perhaps you have been meditating more often, or reading spiritual books and opening your mind to new levels of consciousness. Or perhaps your soul has just been growing, even if you don’t quite know why it is happening or recognize it consciously. This is all good! However, your body needs time to adjust to the increase in light. If you just keep going without taking a short break, it would be like continuing to eat and eat and eat without taking time to digest and eliminate in between meals. Although you may be eating very good quality meals, in time it won’t matter. It will just become too much.
So the oracle will help you. Take a short rest and repair now, so you don’t become unwell or overloaded and need to take a much longer break later on. You are being given healing and you need it. When you have a strong spirit that has conditioned your body and mind to simply keep up, it can be easy to forget that although your spirit is an unlimited being, your body and mind exist within a reality held together with the parameters of time and space. This means that although your spirit doesn’t need sleep or recovery time, your body and mind certainly do!
If you are not in the habit of asking yourself if you need rest (and responding when you realize that perhaps you do), or if you don’t often notice your own cues for needing rest (and therefore end up sick or exhausted ) then this oracle comes to you with compassionate grace. It is an express message from the Universal Mother asking you to melt into her warmth and restoration. She is offering you a chance to be repaired by her healing power. It is highly suggested you give yourself the opportunity to receive it by doing the healing process and then resting for a time.
This oracle also indicates that any situation that may appear to be never-ending is not so, and any brokenness of heart or will, defeat or apparent failure can and will be resolved and restored through the hand of her radiant grace. She will bestow her blessing of relief and repair upon you and your life situation. Allow her grace to resolve your life circumstances as she sees fit, so you can be revived by her rich warm life force. When the Divine Mother turns her attention to a matter, there is no such thing as a lost cause or inevitable defeat. Her ways are many and her resources great. When she decides to animate something that may have otherwise seemed devoid of life, her power is that of the phoenix, rising again after all has seemed lost. Allow her to serve your body, mind and spirit in the way that best serves you now. Surrender into her tender loving care.”*

We are being gifted a gentle reprieve from all the intense energies of this year. We are being offered nurturing and care, support, rest and recovery. Be gentle with yourself. Take the day to relax, or at least part of it if you can.
Have a Himalayan sea salt bath, smudge your house, put some essential oils in a diffuser. Clear your energy, relax. Do something calming that makes you happy, listen to music, spend some time with a pet or loved one, have some comfort food, whatever makes you feel pampered. Take a break from trying to be perfect all the time! Take a break from having to do everything for everyone. Put it all off for a day and just recover.
Red Cuprite is not a crystal that most of us have access to, but you can benefit from the energy by gazing at the card and calling it in. Know that the Divine Mother is at your side, and that you must give yourself a well deserved break before moving forward, even if it is just for today.
