Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Ask An Angel Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Archangel Azrael ~ Surrender
Archangel Azrael ~ Surrender: “Death, like life, is constant. Everything in existence is constantly dying and being reborn – from the cells in our bodies to out thoughts and feelings, to the constant shifting cycles of nature. Like most aspects of nature, the human psyche also goes through larger cycles. The Earth has her days, nights, 28 day moon cycle, 12 month sun cycle just to name a few.
We also have cycles and more often than not they are in complete attunement to the natural cycles. Whether that be through day, night, the weather, seasons or astrology, we have cycles and rhythms that are in tune with nature, regardless of whether we choose to be conscious of it or not.
The part of the cycle coming up here is death. At this stage we deal with a release and a surrender. We must at this stage release some aspect of our life and our self. Beyond that we must release the ego; the part of ourselves that is attached to identity, to itself being seen, being right, the part that buys into the illusion of believing that we can ever truly know the unknowable. At this time a surrender must occur. A surrender to God, to life, to Great Mystery, the universe and the higher intelligence that exists in love.
Once this occurs, a new kind of freedom is achieved within the psyche and the spirit ans we become a clean slate for a new phase to begin.
A death phase can be exciting, terrifying, ecstatic, devastating, or even all of the above, depending on what is occurring for you. Humans are generally petrified of giving up the ego self. This is why we are afraid of death. But the ego must now be released in order to experience new life.
Ultimately, all that can be done is too process whatever feelings are coming up and surrender to this divine and natural cycle of consciousness. Inability to surrender will only result in this part of the cycle being a longer, more drawn out and difficult process than it necessarily has to be.
Above all, a true sense of liberation now awaits you. A new phase. Change is occurring now, embrace and surrender to it.”*
Embrace the change. Move through your fears. Accept, receive, and breathe. You have got this.
Your angels sense a reluctance to flow with the changes you are facing in your life; and they ask you to have faith and surrender to the Universe. Your highest good is taken care of; you are loved and supported and it is time to let the fear and doubt go. There is a bigger plan here than you are seeing presently, and by resisting the changes necessary, you are putting your abundance on hold.
Make sure you are breathing deeply, letting your breath flow through you; opening and balancing your chakras. Listen to some beautiful, calming music, go for a walk outdoors, do yoga, meditate. Take some time for you to deal with your anxiety regarding change; for soon, you will see this change as the best thing that ever happened to you. Ask your angels to support you, and ground yourself with your inner strength and courage. Black tourmaline, hematite, obsidian, rose quartz and clear quartz are all beneficial at this time.
