Daily Angel Oracle card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Dawn
Dawn: “New Beginnings.”
“The start of the day brings with it reassurance that the night has passed, making way for new opportunities, no matter what has come before. It reminds us of the predictability of the daily cycles. That first light that forecasts the sun’s appearance awakens the winged ones, who sing and chirp happily at the advent of another morning. It is a time of fresh beginnings from which we can create whatever kind of experience we desire.
In this image, we see the rays of the sun stretching into the valley while the sun itself peeks around the corner, as if it had set its course to proceeded around the bend in the river, which appears relatively still from its rest during the night. This scene exemplifies renewal and new beginnings.
When you witness the initial stages of dawn without the benefit of a clock or other timepiece, for a while you may not be able to discern whether the sky is really lightening. The stars remain visible, and shadows of the night still shape the landscape. It is that way with any beginning; it is difficult to tell where the old ends and the new begins. Gradually, however, it becomes clear to your senses that the light is definitely increasing; and as you continue to observe, the world slowly wakes up, accompanied by all the sounds, smells and freshness associated with it. Soon, the first glimmer of the sun shows. A new day has begun.
This is a time to say farewell to the old and honour the new by releasing any self-imposed constraints or resistance to the truth that you know. This is your chance to develop that project you have been thinking about, embark on that adventure you have dreamed of going on, and take risks in initiating what you intuitive self has been telling you to do.
As this prospect becomes increasingly visible and real, doubts and uncertainties may arise. But rest assured – just as dawn inevitably turns into day, by heeding your inner guidance, you will succeed.”*

The line that jumps out at me is : “…it is difficult to tell where the old ends and the new begins.” This is so very much the way that we are transitioning from the 3rd dimension to the 5th… often stuck in the 4th on the edge of something amazing; one foot in the past, and one toe dipping into the future. Sometimes we feel as though we are going backwards; we get caught up in all the old thinking patterns, governed by the ego. The fear, the doubt, the low self worth are like a shadow over our souls. The next moment we pull ourselves into the present; we really see what is all around us; abundance, love, infinite possibility. Our vibration raises, we feel joy for no apparent reason, we feel hope and inspiration. This is when we are in our most powerful mode of creation and manifestation. Yet it takes some work to remain here; mindfulness of what we put into our bodies, our minds and our spirits. Who we spend time with makes a difference; how we nurture our bodies nurtures our very being; how we choose to direct our spirituality is our lifeline to our soul… our Higher Self. When the ego kicks in and tells us that we have no right to “just feel joy” or that someone will snatch it away… when we feel fear that what we love will be taken from us unless we vigilantly protect ourselves, we must be strong and release the choke-hold of the ego.
Right now, we are choosing our perception of every moment. We are able to choose to experience life from the 3rd (ego, fear, doubt, paranoia, jealousy, panic) the 4th (grounded, centered, observing but not reacting, mindful of thoughts, people, situations that may have a negative impact) or, finally the 5th: Joy, Unconditional Love, Acceptance, Peace, Light, Christ Consciousness.
Which dimension to you choose for your soul to inhabit? Do you wish to move into the next level of consciousness? Remember you always get to choose, in every moment. Whether it feels like you are moving forward or not, it is only a matter of shifting your perspective. When you shift your own perspective, your reality shifts right along with it. Allowing space for miracles, abundance, prosperity, joy, love and light.
Let’s choose love.
