Daily Angel Oracle card, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Goddess Athena ~ Inner Wisdom
Goddess Athena: “You know what to do, trust your inner wisdom, and take appropriate action without delay.”
Message from Athena: “I am happy to assist you; however, you will be most thrilled when you first consult your own inner bank of knowledge. For I assure you that this situation is already resolved and that you have access to all the wisdom that the universe supplies. To access this wisdom, you must quiet your mind. Surrender all worries and other concerns to the loving and almighty power of the universe. Close your eyes, and note the thoughts and feelings that come streaming into your consciousness. If you like, you can ask me to give you a signal that you have heard your inner wisdom correctly. But have faith. I assure you that you have heard, and that the guidance brings you and your loved ones very good news indeed.”
Various meanings of this card: Stop procrastinating. Stop giving away your power to others. Trust your gut. Do not second guess yourself. You are correct. Notice recurring ideas, and take action on them.
About Athena (pronounced Uh-THEEN-uh): Athena is a powerful and wise Grecian goddess who oversees and protects those who call upon her. She is the daughter of Zeus, and her power animals are white owls and black pigeons. Although Athena is a warrior goddess, she does battle with wits instead of weapons. You can call upon her for resolving disputes, and also for protection. In addition, Athena helps with creative projects such as writing, arts and crafts.”*
It is time to look inward, not outward, for the answers you seek. Your trust in others is diluting your judgement, and you can no longer depend on someone else to provide the answers to your life’s questions; especially when what you seek is right there within your grasp! You are powerful and wise; you must only believe in yourself.
Make some time to be alone, meditating, reflecting and contemplating. Take a walk through the woods; bury your feet in the sand; lie on the grass and gaze at the clouds or the stars; listen to music; write in your journal; do yoga; sit on your meditation pillow. There is no right or wrong way, only what feels most authentic to you. Delve deeply into your inner wisdom to see the answer to your question. Listen carefully to the answers that come to you. Ask for Divine Guidance; you may have a recurring thought or dream; you may have a sudden inspiration; or you may feel a strong pull from your intuition in a certain direction. Whatever comes to you will give you the answers you seek. Do not resort to asking those close to you to make your decisions for you; or pouring your heart out to another in order to receive unsolicited advice. This decision is yours to make; and you have everything you need to make it; including the unconditional love and support from the Universe.
