Daily Angel Oracle Card: Attachment, from the Energy Oracle, by Sandra Anne Taylor
Attachment: “Perceived Need and the Choice to Let It Go.”
In the upright position, this card reveals that your passage forward is being stopped by strong attachments to old patterns or people from the past. The chain at your wrist is bolted to fear from the past or desperation about the future. Although you may wear the mask of pretense or even contentment, you simply cannot seem to go forward.
The stuff that is keeping you stuck could be physical addictions, emotional patterns, or even old relationships. Are you living in fear; addicted to old, unhealthy habits; or so desperate about the future that you cannot be happy now? If so, the chains that bind you could be of your own making. This card is telling you that it is time to take the action you need to break out of your chains and move forward to a open, free, healthy, and authentically happy life. It may take some courage and effort to let go, but know that you are capable of doing it. Until you do, the difficult energy will just repeat itself, keeping you stuck.
I release attachment and choose peace. I am strong, free, and able to choose what honors me.”*

Something is holding you back. What is it? In your heart of hearts, you know exactly what, who or why you are stuck. What is it that you are holding on to, and why? Often we get stuck in a place that feels safe; that is acceptable from the outside, even if it is slowly sucking the life out of you on the inside.
We are so influenced by the “should’s” of the world. Our parents, teachers, spouse or bosses voice ringing in our heads; telling us what is right for us, what is the best decision… in their opinion of course. Many times we stay right where we are so as not to rock the boat; feeling that by being a martyr we are choosing to help those around us be happy, even if it is at our own expense. Unfortunately, this slowly eats away at our soul and damages our self esteem, our sense of self and our hearts. For as we deny our soul it’s journey, we force our hearts into a box that is just too tight. This in turn closes down our heart chakra and can eventually cause physical issues as well.
What we don’t realize, is that by living our most authentic lives; dreaming, creating and manifesting without compromise, we allow others to do the same. We live the example of happiness and freedom; we love ourselves enough to let our hearts lead the way. This is an incredibly valuable lesson for our children; teaching them and allowing them to blossom rather than trying to stuff their dreams in a box made by someone else.
What can you change about your life in order to be more joyful? What would give you some freedom, some breathing space? 2015 is almost upon us… this is the perfect time to recreate yourself and your life. No permission necessary. No compromise.
Dream BIG. Set your intention and let the Universe provide.
You are worth it.
