Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Lady Of The Rose
Lady Of The Rose: “Cast in an ocean of stars, Her reflection fills the galaxy, sky and oceans.”
“Lady Of The Rose represents purity, innocence and wisdom. She holds mystical powers that are born of these qualities and is here to mirror these qualities, which also exist within you. We are led to believe that in order to gain knowledge we must study existing formulas, doctrines, and beliefs. While study may be a rich and rewarding experience, it is also true that all you need to know is inside you.
Your purity, innocence and wisdom are clouded at the moment as a result of too much formality and theory. You do not need further formal qualifications in order to validate what you wish to do with your life. Do not search externally, for all you wish to know is already inside of you. A vast treasure of knowledge and sacred truths exists in the mystical power you hold and it is now tie to access this wisdom and claim your power. Lady Of The Rose is here to help you access the endless knowledge you hold in the light of your heart. Here is an exercise that may help you. Sit quietly and comfortably and let all your thoughts and worldly concerns just drift by. Watch them float away and let go of any expectations you have – simply relax and breathe. The more you can switch off and relax, the easier it will be to connect with your inner self. Knowledge may come through feeling or intuition, or your mind. Remember, the secret is to not make this process a struggle; use it as relaxation without attachment to the outcome. Ask the Universe to help you connect to all the knowledge that would best serve you at this time.”*

Sometimes the lack of a certification, can hold us back from doing what we love, and are meant, to do. We live in a world where they want to see a piece of paper to validate whether you are qualified to do certain careers, jobs or work. I personally love certifications! I love the validation that comes with taking a course, learning the information, being able to apply it with results and getting the certificate to prove it! There is something very satisfying for me in getting yet another certification! Many are quick ones, I have not gone to school for great lengths of time; but a few days or months of applied learning can be great.
However, there are many things that we inherently know that we still look outside for someone else to tell us that we “qualify.” It is important to be able to trust your own inner wisdom when it comes to things like minor health and emotional upsets; knowing what your body needs such as food, rest, solitude, exercise or fresh air, and listening to these messages. There is also a fair amount of healing that can come naturally to us if we learn to work with the Universal energy. Our creativity comes from deep within, and although it is nice to learn new ways to express it, you can also follow your intuition and let your heart guide the way; giving yourself the chance to improve with applied practice.
When we still our minds, we allow ourselves to come into the Universal connection. The connection with our higher selves or inner selves (one in the same), the connection between us and our angels and guides, the Earth herself and Source. We can receive the guidance we need like a radio antennae tuned in to our very favourite station. There is a wealth of knowledge, just waiting for us to access it; as we do in our dreams every night. Give yourself the gift of this knowledge by enjoying silence; preferably every single day.
