Daily Angel Oracle Card: Patience, from the Numerology Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan
Patience: “This card indicates a time to stop and enjoy the present moment, as nothing more can be done to achieve the outcome you desire. Rather than take action, you are being asked to evaluate your progress and clarify your dreams, which will help you to manifest them sooner.
This card also indicates a need to take your time and pace yourself instead of making hasty plans and decisions. Failure to do so could result in stress and disappointment. This is an opportunity to focus all your energy and attention on visualizing your dreams, as opposed to pushing against the obstacles standing in your way. Surrender the outcome to the Universe and get on with living your life. Allow things to come to fruition in Divine order and timing.
In order to improve your current situation, you are being asked to adjust to, and harmonize with, the natural rhythm and cycles of your life – cycles that are encouraging you to be patient and still. Stillness is the key to receiving clear and accurate guidance, and patience will help you attract the outcome you desire.
I patiently trust, and surrender the outcome to the Divine.”*

There are a ton of spirituality and self books available to us; many with the highest intention of helping us to improve our lives. There are workshops and classes; downloadable meditations and YouTube videos; there are a million forms of energy healing and various ways of changing our perspective. Yet none of these, although helpful and satisfying as they may be, can teach us the immeasurable value of surrendering to the Universe. Trust and faith cannot be taught, they must be sought and nurtured from within. Patience, virtuous as it is, lives deep within us, and is inseparable from the concept of relinquishing control. We all have it, but will we choose to activate it within us, letting go and letting the Universe provide, or do we seek to manage it all ourselves? There is no quick fix, no bandaid and no one out there who can solve our problems for us, we simply must start by looking within.
Having patience means living in a state of allowing; you must surrender and trust that everything is in perfect Divine Order. It means that you accept that you cannot hasten the harvest, that there is no way to force a certain outcome until the process is complete. This does not meant that your desired outcome is not possible, and often the outcome will far exceed your expectations, but it does mean that a conscious blessing and releasing is necessary to proceed.
It’s time to put aside the sledgehammer and breathe! You cannot take on all the perceived obstacles in your way at this time. Aggression and fear will get you nowhere but frustrated.
What you can do is use your positive, high vibrational thoughts to create a magnetic pull to manifest your dreams and desires into the physical plane. If you want to speed up your results, have fun with it! Use photos to make a collage or vision board, or collect them all up to put photos and words in a God box or manifestation box. Sing about it; find your theme song and dance to it as if you are staring in your very own movie… a Disney one with a really awesome ending! Use affirmations! Talk about it in the car on your way to work, while you clean your house, or in the shower as if you are telling your closest friend the amazing story of how all your dreams came true (you can do this in your head if you do not have any alone time!).
And the whole time you are busy manifesting through thought power alone? Breathe deeply, remember that your breath is your bridge to the unmanifest dimensions and will create a shortcut to the miraculous. Easy right?
