Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eternity, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Eternity: “It is impossible for the human mind to imagine the vastness of the Universe – it cannot cope with infinite space. The mind will struggle eternally to understand the concept of an ever-expanding Universe. It reasons, “if the Universe is expanding, then there must be something bigger than the Universe itself for it to expand into.” The mind is forever trying to contain the concept of infinity into something tangible and comprehensible.
This card is encouraging you to detach from the restrictions of your mind and look at your life from a more universal perspective. If you try to make your life fit entirely into human logic, you are always going to get to a point where it will no longer make any real sense. This is because, just like the Universe, your existence is eternal and infinite. You have no beginning and no end. This present life is but a speck of your eternal being. Trying to make sense of every part of our life is like trying to piece together a jigsaw puzzle while having only a few small pieces of the puzzle in your possession. This is the way it is. It is human nature to strive to work everything out and try to control life. Yet, eternity exists within our spirit, not within our body or mind and there fore the eternal nature of things is not within human reasoning or understanding.
The message for you at this time in your life is to focus on the spiritual side of life. Observe your thoughts and fears and consciously surrender them to the universal, eternal spirit of life within you. Feel the spirit of Nature and Her changing seasons. Observe how all of Nature is in perfect order, how She accepts all that transpires in the world. Rejoice in the feeling of timelessness that swells within your heart when surrounded by Nature’s beauty.”*

Again we are being asked to detach from the drama and gain a higher perspective. There are issues here which have seemed like insurmountable obstacles, but which are actually distractions keeping you from your Soul purpose. Precious time is being wasted by worries, fears and doubts which need to be released in order to shift to the necessary new perspective. Trust and faith are of paramount importance at this time. We cannot see the wonders before us until we remove our blinders; those self imposed limitations set by past experience, low self worth and fear of the unknown.
Whatever seems to be holding you back is not as difficult to navigate as you think! Take a few moments to breathe deeply and see your problem like a bubble all around you. Imagine taking a sword of light and piercing this bubble. All of a sudden you can see clearly! The colours are so vivid, the bird song more sweet, you can even hear the choir of angels! You realize that this bubble has been separating you from the Divine, that it has caused you pain and angst. Now you can see how small it was, and how small your world had become because of it. Your energy expands. You feel infinite. Now that the bubble is gone you can breathe again. You have a renewed energy. You feel young and whole and free. You send out gratitude to the Universe and know in your heart that now, anything is possible.
