Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Saints and Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Believe
St. Hildegard of Bingen: “Believe.”
“To heal and improve on this situation it is important for you to believe. Have faith in miracles, the power of God’s healing love, and the essential goodness within people. This is an important factor in determining the outcome of this situation.
St. Hildegard of Bingen demonstrated that to bring God’s message to the world, you must believe in yourself. You are qualified. You are ready and prepared. You can do it.
This saint overcame a tremendous self-doubt and became a multitalented author, musician, and healer. This was especially remarkable, considering that women in her era (1098-1179) were not expected to accomplish worldly deeds. Born the tenth child in her family, she was sent to live in a convent in order to reduce her parents’ financial burdens.
Hildegard began having spiritual visions as a young child, and she was eventually called upon to write books about them. She overcame tremendous self-doubt about her literary skills and later wrote: “But although I heard and saw these things, because of doubt and low opinion of myself and because of diverse sayings of men, I refused for a long time to call to writs.” St. Hildegard is also known for orchestrating rich musical chants and for her two books on bringing about physical health by using items found in nature.”*
Belief, like love, starts inside us and radiates out. You can’t hold strong to your belief without having the foundation of that belief in yourself. Otherwise it is a crutch instead of a conviction. Believing in your worthiness to see, feel and experience the Divine in yourself and everything around you is essential to raising your consciousness; you must be open to receiving God in every aspect of your life. When you are open and receptive; the signs come, the messages, the synchronicities, and the miracles come into focus. It’s not a matter of having them spontaneously “appear” as such, it’s more about you being open and able to see and feel them. Imagine yourself as a set of bunny ears on an old fashioned television set, or the antennae on a radio. If those bunny ears, or that antennae is not facing the right way, you would never even know that a television or radio station could come in crystal clear. Once you start experimenting with moving them around a little, “miracles” occur! Suddenly you can see or hear a broadcast, literally out of thin air!
So how do you make yourself the best “antennae” you can? Meditation and yoga are the number one ways; in combination with music, working with crystals and spending time (preferably alone) in nature or with animals. All of those will raise your vibration, while simultaneously raising your consciousness. Sending and receiving love, concentrating on being a “conductor” of love, (think heat and cast iron) between the Earth, all of her creatures and the Universe; the Divine. Know that you are connected; know that you have a message to share, and know that you are fully, unconditionally loved, supported and accepted by the Divine. That is belief.
