07 The Magician

No matter what god or higher power you believe in, we are all part of a collective consciousness, both in this world and the next. Whether your reading comes from tarot, angels or archetype cards we are delving into that collective consciousness. If you are present with a psychic or clairvoyant who has strong connections, you may be connected to individuals but more likely you will be communicating with part of this universal energy which connects us all. Much of the connection comes through our own energies and this is particularly true of online readings.

The magician comes when we are looking for impossible answers; he will try and help you find a solution to difficult situations. If this applies to someone close, consider the phrase ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS! However when he comes to you reversed, he is asking you to consider that there may not be an answer or at least not one that you can readily accept.

The angel associated with The Magician is The Angel Prince Of The West

Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Form, The Angel Prince of The West is in the group known as Angel Princes.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To provide the multitude with access to the heavenly realms
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help you to understand the true nature of people and situations; develop your intuition and trust your inner knowing; help you experience life through other dimensions

Intuition is our capacity to know our inner truths. It is a non-rational function and comes from a very deep place within us which was probably our first level of understanding. It is a precursor of rational thinking and is more closely associated with our feeling function. Intuition is the ability to know something to be true from deep within ourselves. It is the truest, and, in some sense, the most immediate way of seeing the reality of self and others.

The Angel Prince of the West enables us to gather information which we can then use positively for our growth and development. We unconsciously use our intuition all the time as a way of knowing if something or someone is right for us or if we are safe. We can sharpen our consciousness of this function by increasing our awareness and by practice at listening to our inner voice.

The angels generally express themselves to us through pictures, which we then interpret with our rational minds. But to understand fully the guidance we are given from the higher spiritual realms we need clearly focused intuition. We need to be able consciously to read the signals filtering through our minds, so as to decode them.

We pray to The Angel Prince of the West to open our capacity for intuition and inner knowing and to help us utilize this gift. This means that we need to be willing to recognize the projections of our own emotions on to the people and world around us. Such projections often prevent us from seeing a situation with clarity. We can ask The Angel Prince of the West to help us stand out of the way of our projections, so that our inner vision is clear and pure.
Clear vision and intuition are the gifts of mystics and can be developed by anyone who values this type of knowledge, though they have not been highly esteemed in the western world until fairly recently. This angel offers us the realization of one of our innate gifts if only we choose to grasp it for ourselves.

Angel Insights : Other common ways angels appear—in distilled divine states similar to having wings—are as a bright or glowing white light, as small dots of colored lights, or as what looks like white vapor or mist. When angels appear in their divine state, they don’t tend to say much—or if they do the message is very brief and to the point.
