Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D. Farmer: Dragonfly ~ Emergence
Dragonfly ~ Emergence: “In the stages of the life cycle of a dragonfly, once the egg is laid upon a floating plant or dropped into the water, it gestates, hatches and may remain for up to four years in this larval form called a nymph. This is a precursor to the dragonfly. (Dragonflies skip the cocoon stage, moving from egg directly to nymph.) At some point, the nymph climbs onto a rock or leaf and there emerges from its former body and takes on the shape and character of the adult dragonfly. This radiant being then proceeds to illuminate our eyes and hearts as we witness its dramatic colours and magical dance along the surface of the water.
In this card, we see a Nature goddess, like the dragonfly, emerging from the water, her hair braided with vines dotted with flowers. She is surrounded by dragonflies and is one with the vibrant plant life thriving in the pond. The goddess emerges from her gestation in the water transformed, with a renewed sense of power and purpose.
You are in an intense process of emergence into the next cycle of your life. Unlike more gradual shifts in awareness you have experienced, this one is happening quite rapidly and came on somewhat unexpectedly, without any pauses for contemplation or indecision. You may even think that you are unprepared for such dramatic changes in your life, yet you are prepared and can put to use the experiences and wisdom you have accumulated up to now.
Life is demanding that you move into the next stage of maturity. This requires you to adjust your thinking about yourself, others, and your community. It calls for you to shed yet another layer of your ego-filled defenses and let go of any illusions of being less than who you are.
This period of emergence is one of broadened consciousness and heightened perceptual capacities; and since it is inevitable, it is best to surrender to the flow and allow yourself to gracefully move into the next cycle of your life.”*
The cards over the last few days have all been uplifting messages of gifts; happiness, harmony and fulfillment. In order to access all of the abundance available to you now, you are about to experience a transformation, and, like jumping into a fast flowing river, it’s up to your attitude as to how it will all go down! You, right now, have a choice to make: are you going to welcome change and growth with open arms, seeing the opportunities as brightening your life with positive experience, or are you fearful or doubtful of any changes that may be coming your way? Will you be swimming up stream, or going with the flow?
If you are experiencing any fear or doubt, work on visualizing exciting possibilities coming your way; visualize yourself being joyful, healthy and peaceful. Ask the Angels to take away any fears you may have dealing with change or your perception of change, and consciously decide, that you are going to give it your all and go with the flow. When you relinquish control to the Divine, expect miracles, as your highest harmony will be the center of your life’s plan. You are standing at the edge of the lucious river of life, take a quantum leap of faith and raise your sights to the next level of consciousness. Jump in and don’t look back, knowing with all your heart that you are a Divinely protected being of love, heading down the stream of infinite possibility.
