Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Love ~ Compassion
“In this beautiful image, we see hands reaching toward each other through a heart. The green field surrounding them is the colour of the fourth, or heart chakra. It is when we feel love in our heart center that we are not only naturally emit the healing energy of compassion, but we also attract love and compassion. Studies by the HearthMath institute reveal that the electrical signals from the heart are up to 60 times stronger than the brain’s, and the magnetic field is as much as 5,000 times more powerful.
It is a given that our thinking patterns affect our feelings and, in turn, our reality. What we put out – whether it is love, fear, empathy, sadness, and so forth – contains an incredible amount of power to shape and influence our reality. When the focus of our attention and intention is love and compassion, we recognize no separation between self and other.
All wounds stem from the illusion of separation from Source and all of Creation. The route to healing this wound is through cultivating love and compassion for every being on this planet, including yourself. Not a bland standard of unquestioned acceptance, but a heartfelt sense of profound relatedness to whatever you perceive as apart from yourself. True compassion requires not only the feeling of warmth that emanates when you are in touch with hour heart center, but in acts of kindness even if this simply means being a fully attentive listener.
Respect the fact that your heart is a giver (putting our electrical energy) and a receiver (drawing in magnetic energy). These energies are best sensed by attending to the steady flow of your breathing while also noticing your heart area. Righteousness, fear, anger, and judgement are some common ways to block your natural desire to love. Forgiveness is not only letting go of judgement, but also seeing through the illusion that you and All-That-is are separate. Look about you and inside of you, and do your best to love whatever you see.”*
Feelings are like a vortex, pulling your energy up or down depending on which way you are vibrating. I often think of a flag pole, a flag that is at the bottom of the pole, or lying on the ground, is pretty sad to behold. The power has been knocked right out of it, and it’s a shadow of itself lying helplessly on the ground; very much how you would feel if you had hit rock bottom, or were down in the dumps. As you pull the flag up the pole, it starts to get some energy, maybe catching a bit of a breeze; there is promise of better wind to come. Once you start to turn your energy around and think positively, you are feeling better, there is hope. When you are vibrating high, your flag is at the top, flapping powerfully in the breeze, catching the sun and getting people’s attention in a positive way, you are in a state of harnessing your inner strength and positive power. This is the state where your can easily manifest your dreams, and access the Universal abundance that is all around us.
We must learn to create our reality by constantly envisioning our lives and the world around us the way we desire it to be, rather than despairing that is not the way we would like it to be. This is tricky as we love to dwell on what is wrong in the world, not what is perfect. To see the perfection in creation and refuse to allow negative energy to drag you down is actually something that must be learned and practiced. It will take dedication and commitment to use your heart to create your life instead of your fearful, analytical brain. I am not suggesting that you change anything other than your perspective. See the world as you desire it in every moment. Be the world that you strive to create; and the Universe will provide.
