Daily Angel Oracle Card: Purity, From the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Purity: “At the heart of every being dwells the purity of existence. However, our purity is purposely clouded by our soul to enable us to participate in this human drama. We each to some degree have a distorted view of life. The true essence of who we are is clouded by who we think we are. As a newborn baby enters this life it feels only oneness. It does not feel or see itself as separate to the world but as part of it. This feeling of oneness and belonging, that we are born with, stems from the fact that at a soul level, all is one.
As your soul incarnates into this physical world, you are aware that you exist individually, but aware also that you are a part of everything else within creation. In the very early stages of life, this feeling of oneness prevails. However, this awareness is soon lost. As the duality of the physical world takes hold, oneness becomes a distant memory that we strive to regain for the rest of our lives. It becomes a yearning within us, a strong desire to reconnect with our spirit, which in turn reconnects us to the spirit of all creation. Yet this is where the illusion lies, for in reality we are never separate from creation. This card is here to remind you of the oneness that exists in all things. Perhaps you have been struggling to find your true nature, purpose or mission in life. Remember that the answers to these questions will never be found in the outside world which is an illusion. Your true nature cannot be found through human reason and logic. It can only be discovered through your heart and through your inner spiritual eye which is able to see your life as it is in relation to all of creation. You are therefore being urged to go within. Set aside time each day to meditate and connect with your spiritual-self and know that in doing so, your life will regain the purity which you seek.”*

I just read that if we all knew what happened when we pass over, none of us would stay here, and that is why we opt for amnesia when we come in to this physical plane. This is reassuring news, but it also makes me realize how uneducated we are on the afterlife. We are shown movies where angry ghosts possess people’s bodies and seek revenge. We are shown sad stories of death, loss and devastation. But what if we could learn to revere death again? What if we saw the leaving of this plane as a right of passage to be truly celebrated. A sacred journey just as important, if not more so, than the one we are presently on?
When my kids ask me about passing on, I tell them that it’s like we have all decided to meet in Hawaii, but even better…. the only little glitch is that we are all taking different flights at different times. Some people get to go early and wait there, having so much fun swimming with the dolphins and turtles and playing with their angels in the surf. Some people have things to finish up here on Earth which could take a few years, but they will make it eventually. Everyone is happy, the pets are there to share in the joy and it’s all perfect and wonderful. No fear whatsoever.
When we can shed the fear of passing, we can fully embrace the power of being here in the now. We can appreciate the intricate connection we all have. We can see the purity of soul and spirit in ourselves and others. We can emerge ourselves in the physical world while we are here, knowing that we will ultimately reconnect with spirit in the end.
And so it is.
