Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Gaia Oracle Card Deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Evolution
Evolution: “Earth changes, Climate change, Transformation.”
“Our world is cradled in a cosmic ocean of love; surrounded by an infinite universe, governed by a higher force greater than our human mind can know or comprehend. We are a forever changing image, forever transforming on our journey through eternity. Yes, the climate is changing, and yes, the Earth is transforming, but this has always been so and this will always continue. Are we governed by a will greater than our own or are we the architects of our own future; this we do not know for sure. But one thing is certain; whether we like it or not, our precious planet will continue to transform. From the Stars we were born and to a star we shall transform. Be mindful of Mother Earth, be considerate and kind to her, but do not fear her changing nature, for just like us, she is transforming to ever greater light.*
Fear holds us back more than any other force or obstacle. Fear of the unknown, fear of change, fear of acceptance, fear of judgement. All fear, even tiny bits in the form of doubt act as blocks and keep us ever focused on the perceived negatives instead of the positives we strive to create. If everyone in the world could see the unlimited abundance, the infinite love and know, without a shadow of doubt that there is enough of everything we can possibly imagine to go around, well as I like to say, the world would be a very different place. Wouldn’t it?
What holds you back from the life you always wanted to live? What stops you from feeling “allowed” or worthy of taking charge and living outside the box? Is it the media? Childhood limitations set by relatives, teachers or friends? Or did you set those boundaries yourself, not trusting that you could successfully go where you wanted to go?
And what about now? How is all that working out for you? Are you as happy and joyful as can be, or are you wondering where your dreams went? Are you inspired or are you compromised. Food for thought. We live in a society that dictates what should make us happy in the form of material items: big car, huge house, nice clothes, plastic faces, stick-like bodies with added bumps in all the right places. We put “successful” people on a pedestal, as if they are actually better than the rest, yet reality television has proven many times over that these are some of the most dramatically unhappy people out there. So why are we buying into it?
What would truly make you happy? Take some time to ponder it. A healthy, active body so you can get out there and play? Spend quality time with your pets, kids and friends doing your favorite activities? Would you have more fun if you looked better doing them, or is that just a silly notion being sold to you. Really. How big of a house do you need? How expensive and fancy of a car do you need to get from point A to point B anyway? So then, what else is there?
What if your sole purpose in life was to open your eyes to the abundance of beauty around you? The amazing wildlife, all those perfect animals and creatures. The plants, flowers, clouds, oceans, deserts, majestic trees and mossy rocks. What if you decided that you were pretty awesome, just the way you are, right now? What if you decided to accept those around you and just love?
What is the perfect life anyhow? It’s a balance between what we hold in our hearts desire and what we take for granted every day; the beauty all around us. It’s a connection to the Divine, in us and all around us. It’s letting go of anger, resentment, and past injustices. It’s accepting yourself completely. It all starts with love.
