Daily Angel Oracle Card: Purification ~ Fire, from the Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Purification ~ Fire: “Bare essentials; The naked truth; Wholeness.”
“What is it that your heart truly desires? What do you perceive is missing in your life? In order to find the answers you must look inside your heart. You already know this but have reluctant to look because a part of you fears what your heart is trying to tell you. The only way forward is to face your fear. Something in your life is not working out as you would have liked and it is not going to get any better unless you have the courage to face it. Close your eyes and relax. Imagine a beautiful flame, warming your heart and soul. Feel its purifying and healing light burning away your fears and doubts, healing your body and mind and clearing away all obstacles either imagined or real. Feel your heart center as an endless space full of only love and light. Feel the peace. You are safe in this eternal space of light. Now, what is your heart saying? When it brings a tear to your eye you will know that it is your truth.
Your soul will guide you towards happiness; all you need to do is follow. Trust!
I listen to my heart and follow it’s guidance.
I deserve to be happy.
I have the power to create my own reality.
I trust that all will work out well.
My life is clear of all obstacles.”*

We have been asked to look closely at our most intimate relationships, and how the people around us can affect us. We have looked at what we have come here to learn from them all; whether that lesson is perceived as “good” or “bad.” Now we are being asked to delve deeply within ourselves to see where our own true heart lies. Looking inward to our very core; where heart meets soul will tell us the absolute truth about our essence of being. Yet many times we shy away from this kind of honesty… do we really want to know? By knowing we are then faced with deciding. Transform or compromise? Break free or stay stuck? Take the leap of faith or stay where we feel safe and secure?
Really it should be the easiest decision in the world… following our hearts should be second nature, there should be no reason to write this…. it would be like me telling you not to forget to breathe, or digest your food… yet that is not the case.
Enter fear, doubt, worry and a healthy dose of other people’s opinions and judgement thrown in for good measure. What does the tape in your head say? Does it say “go for it, I believe in you 100% and you can do this, you will succeed no matter what!”… or does it say… “What if you fail… again. What if you end up alone… forever. What if it’s too late? What if no one likes your idea? What if you end up all alone under a bridge with nothing.”
Is this tape in your head perhaps an 8 Track? Is it a VHS or a floppy disk? Is it possible that it might be sooooo 10, 20, 30 40 or 50 years OUTDATED?? If you could take it out and have a good look at it, would you realize that it was all dusty and broken down from being played over and over again… maybe it’s one of those old phonographs with the funny looking funnel thingy playing warbly old music, stuck on the same track due to the big scratch. Ok, you get the point!
So, take a few deep breaths, we are going to perform psychic surgery, yup, just like John Of God! We are going to do an upgrade, and we are going to remove that old, worn out tape and replace it with some loving affirmations, such as the ones above.
Breathe deeply and when you are ready, click “eject” and see the tape. Take it out and lovingly examine it. Remember where you got it, who’s voice is on it, and how long you have had it. Then grab some metaphorical lighter fluid and light that baby up! See the flames engulf it, purifying it, disintegrating it, clearing out all that low density vibrational energy it was packed with. See yourself dropping it onto the ground and stomping on it a few times just for good measure… and since this is only a visualization, and we are not hurting the environment, imagine Mother Gaia absorbing it for you lovingly. Poof… it’s gone.
Now… on to infinite possibility. Clean slate. Happy heart. Soaring soul. The Universe is the limit. Dream, smile, breathe, and just be. Love.
