Daily Angel Oracle Card: Union, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish
Union: “The Union card represents the energy of two loving souls coming together in union or in partnership. If a current relationship is in question, then this card indicates a positive energy is involved.
This card can represent the beginning of a new relationship, or one that is about to start. Most often, the Union card represents intimate relationships. However, it can also point to other types of partnerships such as business partners, very close friendships. or even room-mates. In any case, the Union card communicates the predestined convergence and soul connection of two individuals. Whoever the person is that is in your life right now, or whoever it is that is coming into your life, is of great significance as far as your soul lessons are concerned. This is a beautiful opportunity for personal growth and conscious expansion of your heart center.
Sometimes these relationships bring up our deeply held beliefs about the quality of love we feel we deserve. They can hep to raise our consciousness and understanding, so that we feel safe to allow this person to see into the deepest, most vulnerable parts of ourselves. With these types of relationships, one thing is for certain – you will grow and learn from them.
Enjoy all the good this union has to offer. Be as open as possible to recognizing your triggers, fears, and old patterns of behaviour. Be mindful of when you are feeling the need to hide or protect yourself, or if you begin to fear losing their love. This will enable you to consciously address and heal any old issues and wounds of the past. This a part of the soul agreement that you and this person share. You have come together to help each other to become whole, healed, and open to love in every way.”*

Everyone we cross paths with has something they can teach us; if we are willing to see the lesson and learn. Those who we invite in to our lives intimately, including family, hold the Soul lessons we have chosen to learn for this lifetime. When we find ourselves victim to these people, it is because our lesson may have been repeated over several lifetimes… and basically we need more than a gentle nudge at this point! All subtlety may have been lost due to our failure to master the lesson in previous lifetimes, or we may have incorporated a whole new level to be mastered. Either way, these lessons can be extremely challenging and the faster we get it, the less pain is involved.
When we accept someone’s poor treatment of us, when we continually lower our standards and our expectations of this person, what we are actually doing is saying that we don’t deserve any better. This is not a Hollywood movie (sigh… unfortunately lol!) but reality… you may have to wait a very long time to be rescued from your unhealthy situation by your knight in shining armor. Instead? You must change your perception of your own self worth… thus becoming a magnet to what it is that you really desire in a relationship. You must decide that you refuse to settle for less; and you must decide that you are completely capable on your own, and that your knight in shining armor would just be the icing on the cake… NOT your saviour.
No one can save you but you. By deciding what it is that you really, really, really want. And pursuing it with determination, exuberation (that may not be a word but I like it), joy, and complete faith that you can achieve it. With the Universe fully supporting you every step of the way.
Until then, you have to put up with the challenges created by that which you are trying to learn in this lifetime; knowing that as soon as you decide you are ready, you can accept the lessons and move forward, dreaming and manifesting your desires as you go.
Your choice… and I mean that in the lovingest kind of way.
