Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue: Hina
Card Meaning: “Walk away from restrictions and be free! You have the power and the right to change your life so that you experience more freedom. This card signifies that your soul is crying out for more freedom, especially as it involves your life’s purpose. Perhaps it is time to take a break so that you can think clearly about your desires and available options. The Universe always supports the desire for expansion, creativity, and freedom. Say yes to freedom and the Universe will say yes to you.
Additional meanings for this card: “It is time to leave a situation that you have outgrown. Question the validity of any rules that you have imposed on yourself. Allow the Universe to support you while you make desired life changes. Be assertive and say no to anyone who is overstepping boundaries with you.
Hina is a Polynesian and Hawaiian moon goddess who is considered to beautiful that no one can directly look at her. She felt compassion for the natives, so she threw pieces of the moon down to the islands to provide for their material needs. The pieces turned into banyan trees, which the natives pounded into tapas cloth for use in clothing and commerce. Call upon Hina for issues involving fertility, attraction and manifestation.”*
I often reflect on my current lack of freedom and how I wish that I had appreciated it when I had it years ago, traveling around the world where ever and when ever I felt like. All diving related, so there are still many places on my Planet Earth list, but I got to see some amazing places under and above the ocean, and I am thankful for it. Being married, having kids who are into sports, and running two businesses keeps me on my toes… and anchored down for now, freedom being a thing of the past! It’s just a compromise for now though, freedom will return, probably faster than I can imagine possible right now and most likely faster than I will be prepared for. Does this life not just fly by? When you are compromising your freedom to create decent human beings, it all seems worthwhile. So in the meantime, I can dream about distant turquoise oceans, beach side yoga retreats and people living simple lives, connected closely with Mother Earth.
What can we all do in the mean time? Well, steal a few minutes every day to meditate, do yoga, breathe fresh air, be grateful for my own health and the health of my children, family and friends. Concentrate on providing an example of love, compassion and gratitude. Be kind to the Earth and all her inhabitants, no matter how small my current world seems, as we are all connected. Work on manifesting an abundance of health, peace, happiness and connection for everyone on this beautiful little planet.
