Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D. Farmer: Gaia ~ Nurturing
Gaia ~ Nurturing: “Earth Mother, Mother Goddess, Great Goddess, Terra Mater… and Gaia. In the Greek pantheon, this magnificent being was Earth personified as a goddess. Daughter of Chaos, she was the mother and wife of Uranus (heaven). It is her body that we walk upon ever day, and the substance of our own bodies is the substance of hers. It is from Gaia that we receive everything we need for survival, which she provides for us abundantly, nurturing our body, mind and soul.
She nurtures our bodies by offering the fruit of the trees, the greens from the Earth and the air that we breathe. She nurtures our minds through her awesome physical and dynamic beauty and, as depicted in this card, by the amazing colourfulness and diversity of the world she is constantly creating and re-creating. She nurtures our souls by caressing us with her blessings each day and challenging us to be better humans through her response to our attentions and intentions.
Receiving can be a scared act if your intention is to honour Spirit. It is as holy as giving when performed with a humble and open heart. This is even truer when receiving much needed nurturing, so let others give to you. It may be a stretch to do so at times because of childhood conditioning, but that habit can be overcome. Your wounds can be healed. One way to achieve this is to nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you.
Consider the actions you take that are self-nurturing. What comes to your mind when you really think about doing beneficial things for yourself? Set aside your ritualized habits and beliefs that restrict the pure act of allowing your body, heart, and soul to be nurtured. Lie on the Earth and ask Gaia to rock you in her bosom as you breathe with her and relax into her loving care.”*
In perfect balance, as we receive love from Gaia, so we give back to her in equal measure. Unfortunately, in this day and age, this is not the case; we are taking more than we give. We have been for a long time… far too long. This is an urgent call to give back to our loving Mother Earth as she selflessly gives to us. It is a call to spend time outdoors, in gratitude and healing thoughts and prayers. We have the power to create balance, but it takes some commitment on our parts.
Gaia is perfect, she is gorgeous and giving and abundant; we must help her to heal where she is damaged and injured… by us. We need to get outside, bare feet on the ground and crystals in hand. Pulling down the bright white love and light from the Universe, asking help from the Angels, the Ascended Masters, and The Divine. A crystal in each hand, or hands open to the sky and feet planted firmly on the Earth; we can send the love right into the center of the planet. We can ask the bright white loving light to attend to the areas most in need of healing; where oil has been spilled; where pollution is suffocating her; where fertilizers and contaminates are harming her; where debris release toxins into her loving arms. Fukushima. Lake Michigan. If you need to see a list, there is one here: The 25 Biggest Manmade Environmental Disasters in History… (well so far anyway…. sigh).
Please understand that this post is not meant to depress you. It is meant to inspire you to take action now. You are a powerful light worker. You have what it takes to help and we need your help right now. This is why you are here. To help heal the Earth, one person at a time, remembering what they came here for; recognizing their powers and using them to undo what has been done. Undertake to do it joyfully and there is more power in your prayers.
I’m building an army, fueled by love, faith, joy, trust and Divine Guidance. Wanna join me? I would love to have you. All you have to do is raise your vibration, send love and healing to the Earth and all of her creatures and know with conviction that you can make a difference. We are all connected. This is a vitally important job… in fact, it’s part of your life’s path. But you already know that, don’t you… that’s why you are reading this!
With love, light and blessings.
