Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the (New!) Archangel Power Tarot Oracle Card deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine: Archangel Ariel, Strength
Archangel Ariel: “Strength and grace through kindness. Self confidence. Forgiveness”.
“You have great strength and compassion! The kindness and understanding that you give to others are a blessed gift. However, it is equally important to show gentleness toward yourself. You may see aspects within you that cause you worry or impatience. But every person is a child of God. It is by balancing all aspects of yourself with love and mercy that you learn to exhibit those same qualities to people around you.
You are far stronger than you may believe. The situation you find yourself in requires a very soft and sensitive approach. Archangel Ariel can help you stay strong in the face of any challenge.
Additional meanings of this card: “Self confidence. Patience. Self control. Forgiveness. Inner strength. Influence through kindness.

Her name means “Lioness of God,” and she can inspire great courage in the hearts of those who call upon her, Archangel Ariel is also known to be an angel of manifesting the essentials of daily life. Call upon Ariel if you are feeling uncertain or experiencing a lack of confidence, and she will help you get in touch with you own inner strength.”*
I have to mention here that the number on this card, 11 also has great meaning! The meaning for the number 11, taken from Angel Numbers 101, by Doreen Virtue is: “Stay positive! your thoughts are materializing rapidly, so you want to ensure positive outcomes by focusing only on the good within yourself, others, and this situation.” This is a message unto itself, and we need to be aware of numbers that we see during the day and in our dreams at night. If you have a sequence of numbers that somehow repeats itself over and over to you, it may be a message to you from the Divine. Numbers are an infinite language.
This message from Archangel Ariel is to be kind and gentle to yourself; extending the compassion inward that you would to any of your loved ones or friends. Your soul is the root of your gift of unconditional love to the world; to be able to fully express this love, you must find a way to completely love and accept yourself. There is power in self acceptance that we are not always willing to see. We tear ourselves apart instead of looking closely to see the lesson in past mistakes. We deny responsibility for the choices we make and wonder why we are “victims” instead of lovingly accepting our flaws and working towards blending the positive and negative aspects of ourselves to make a whole.
We are whole, we are perfect and if we tap into our inner wisdom and strength, we have what it takes to make positive and live affirming decisions. We can shine our light on the world and help others to love and accept themselves too. Ask the Angels for help if this seems difficult or impossible, they love you completely and unconditionally and are waiting patiently to teach this love to you.
