Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Oracle Of The Mermaids Oracle Card deck, by Lucy Cavendish: Adrift
Adrift: “Letting go, allowing a higher force to take charge for a time.”
The Mermaids Sing: “What is it, to be without direction, without self-determination, without a sense of empowerment? It is always dis-empowering… so this card invites you to contemplate the many aspects of letting go and, as so many of you humans say, so many times it has become a cliche, going with the flow. Sometimes, for all our strength and purpose, we mermaids just let go for a time, especially if there has been great turmoil and we are weak. So, the “Adrift” card suggests that there is a sense of making o effort at all at the moment… that you may be safe, and able to float, but it is up to the tides, and the cycles, and to the waves and to the wind to determine your destination. It can also suggest that there is a lack of urgency for you at the moment – that you are willing to be totally compliant, and to see what happens next – and yet, this is a choice , too. You can always paddle. You can choose to lie down, turn your face to the clouds and drink the waters from the sky when they choose to come, to allow your fate to be decided for you. And sometimes, this is right and good, it is sometimes humbling and can create wisdom… the wisdom that comes with observation and stillness and the and the sense of sacrificing yourself to a power greater than yourself. There is no longer an anchor. There is no sail. There are no oars. And there is no map. There is only the floating world, of which you are a part.”
Divination: Refusing to attempt to change things – allowing yourself to surrender to the situation and to see where it takes you. A kind of peaceful passivity, and in an oceanic way, allowing the cycles to make a decision on your behalf. This can indicate too that you have no desire to make decisions, only to drift and to float and to allow whatever outcome will be to be. It is as if there is no moving forward, and no retreat… just a moment-by-moment acceptance of all that is taking place, and a very gentle, almost imperceptible willingness to let the tide and current take you where it will. You are adrift… and you are somehow akin to Odin, hanging on the tree of life. Will you be taken to shore? Will you remain at sea? Will you fade and vanish? What is it you should do? That is not eve a question you are asking yourself. It seems you have made the powerful choice… for suspension, to rest. To no-do. For nothingness. For allowing what IS around you, to determine, for now, the fate of yourself.”

It’s time to let go; things right now are beyond your control. Trust in the Universe; know that everything you need will be provided. Worrying will only hold you back, you must surrender instead to the Divine. Bless and release. Let go of stress and overwhelm, take a break from decision and breathe.
Spend some time outside observing the natural cycles around you. Slow down and really use all of your senses to appreciate your surroundings; see the beauty; feel the wind on your face; hear the birds song; smell fall in the air; taste the freshness in the air. The tree cannot rush the leaves to drop no more than the flower can rush it’s bloom; you can’t move fast right now, you must relax and restore your energy. You have been pushing and pushing, trying and trying; and although your perseverance is admirable and often necessary, this is a time to take a break and let your Angels and Guides take over for a while. Rest while you can.
Enjoy yourself, this is the calm before the next storm; a gentle reprieve. Know that you are loved, supported and guided through it all and have faith that this is all part of the process.
