Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Tori Hartman: Joy
Joy: “Let’s just jump in and see what happens.”
The Legend: “We do not know much about Dancin’ Daisy, we do know that she brings joy whenever she she appears. Everyone who sees her becomes happier and more peaceful. Arguments cease as she comes close. People are even healed physically as a result of her presence. No one knows where she came from, and just before the TV crews arrive, she leaves.
Inspiration: Dancin’ Daisy represents a new joyous phase in life and a significant change, such as a move, a new joy or a marriage. This is the moment after the leap. You may not see where you are going, but you will land on your feet.
Personal Inquiry: What can I do to invite happiness into my life? Being present is not the same as truly experiencing something.
Key Ideas: A conduit for joy; detached from joy; higher purpose; profoundly impacting lives; improved health; a birth.
Key Words: Joy, playfulness, delight.
Sit with Dancin’ Daisy. Look at her and allow her joy to fill you.
Now imagine a ball of sunshine in your solar plexus.
Let it expand, allowing the room to be filled with this radiant energy.
Send it out to the Universe with love.
Things manifest quickly after touching this energy.”*
Bringing joy into your life has so many benefits; healing and connecting us body, mind and spirit. It is easy to be disconnected, especially by the distraction and stresses of every day life. Technology robs us of interpersonal connections that bring us joy and fulfillment; we often are led to believe the reason we are feeling that something is “missing” is because we don’t own the latest gadget! Instead, we need to shut off the screens, walk away from the alerts, and get outside! Surrounding ourselves with the abundance and joy offered by Mother Earth strengthens our connection to the Universe. Spending quality time with those we love, and who love us, also brings great joy and peacefulness into our lives.
It’s time to take a step back from the rat race and simplify things! Take a hike; go to the beach; swim in the river, lake or sea; go camping, horse back riding; take in the sunrise and sunset to reset your natural circadian rhythms, gaze at the sky day or night and admire it’s vast perfection. Joy is in the plants, the trees, the flowers, the sky and in all the creatures on this beautiful planet. That includes you, all you have to do is allow it to radiate out from you like the sun.
Access your inner resources of joy by doing what you love; with who you love; in your most favorite place… outside. Experience the present moment without lack, without fear, and without distraction. Open yourself to the infinite possibilities of the Universe, one hug at a time.
