Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue: Mother Mary
Mother Mary: “Nurture yourself.”
You have given a lot of yourself lately and now it is time to give something to yourself. You have drawn this card because you need to nurture yourself. This means taking good care of your body through sleep, detoxification, and exercise. It also means taking care of your needs as you would for others. To have more energy, abundance, peace, purpose, and everything that you desire, nurture yourself.
Additional meanings of this card: Balance giving to others with receiving for yourself. Honor your inner voice. Get some rest. Take care of your body. Nurture your inner child. Your life purpose involves helping children. Mother Mary is with you, helping and guiding you.
Mother Mary is the beloved mother of Jesus who is renowned for her purity and compassion. Mary helps children, including our inner children) and caretakers of children. You can ask Mother Mary for a Divine assignment to help children as your life’s work.”*
Whenever I have a stressful day with my kids, when things aren’t going as planned, and I know that I’m taking things too personally; I pray to Mother Mary for her Divine grace. Mother Mary is the epitome of unconditional love, sending her warm and beautiful energy around you like a safe and secure hug. She can help you to balance your emotions, help you see the beauty in your children (as they swing from the chandelier) and help you to become the patient and loving mother you aspire to be, even while listening to the litany of crazy, death defying stunts they pulled in gym class from their frazzled teacher! Call on her when you are not sure what to do in regards to a situation with your child; if you are feeling frustrated, or stumped as to how to deal with certain behaviours or situations, regardless of your child’s age. Mother Mary is non-judgemental, she will help you see the light in your situations and live from your heart.
To connect with Mother Mary is easy, you only have to ask; however, for our own connection, we can meditate on a picture of her, or if you have one, hold it close to your heart while you pray. I will often ask both Mother Mary and Jesus to be with me, guiding me through life with grace and ease; helping me to make the best decisions for everyone involved.
This card is also reminding you that if you are feeling overwhelmed by all your responsibilities, (totally to be expected during the holiday season) it’s hard to feel patience; you may need a little break from it all. A vacation would be dreamy; however, not always feasible! So how do you pull yourself out of the rat race for a little TLC? Go for a walk (if it’s not -8 like it is here right now!!), but the point would be to get outside and breathe some fresh air, even for just a few minutes. Another, warmer option is to take a candle lit Himalayan sea salt bath, meditate, do some yoga… or say no to something that you really don’t want to do and play hookie and people watch for an hour at your favourite coffee shop! Take a little “me” time, to pamper yourself a little. It doesn’t have to be really time consuming or expensive, it just has to be a break in your routine and a little selfish, in a good way!
By giving a little back to yourself, you won’t feel so overwhelmed! Your patience will return, and you will be able to let go of resentment. Plus, you know you totally deserve it! So, take a little time and go do something fun, just for you… you don’t even have to tell anyone (well, except me, if you want to share, I’d love to hear all about it!!)
