Daily Angel Oracle Card: In Two Minds, from the Heart Of Faery Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud
In Two Minds: “Internal Dialogue ~ Decision ~ Action.”
“Should I? Shouldn’t I? I could do it this way, but then again I could to it that way. I could change things, but then again, I could just let things be the way they are. I could get up and do something, or I could sit here and think about it. Do I want Chinese food or Italian food? A walk in the park? Or another hour in front of the TV?
Decisions plague our lives. In Two Minds has never made a decision in his whole life, at least onto one that he has stuck with for more than a minute or tow. He can’t. He literally has two voice going on in his head at all times, and they never, ever agree. Do you recognize him? He may be living in your head even as you read this. If he is a familiar figure to you, then it is time to acknowledge him and remember that once you acknowledge him, his presence can be useful. By picking this card, you recognize the fact that although any argument has at least two sides, in the end you have to choose and make a decision. It may not end up being the right one, but until you decide on some sort of action, you are as stuck as he is, forever arguing with yourself, forever in a static state.
Be brave. Do something. When you take that first step, you will find that the next one may be much clearer and more obvious than you could have imagined.”*

We’ve all been there. Weighing our options. Carefully measuring out the pro’s and cons of a decision. Should I stay with my job that gives me security, benefits and regular hours? Or should I quit and become an entrepreneur? Should I stay in a relationship that doesn’t fit my needs because I’m scared that might not make enough money to support my kids, or because my family thinks I should or because my partner thinks I should? Or should I honour my heart, strike out on my own, and trust that, somehow, the Universe will provide.
It’s living the “What if’s?” over and over and over again in your head. What if I leave and it’s a mistake? What if I fail? What if everyone is angry at me for my decision? What if I regret making the change? Aren’t these all just distractions from the truth? Aren’t they your ego’s way of throwing up obstacles in the form of big blocks of fear? Are any of them actually true? And if they are true, could they not lead to the Universe redirecting you to where you are really meant to be?
How could your heart be wrong… especially if it has been speaking to you for some length of time now. This isn’t exactly new is it?
Take a deep breath and decide to decide… once and for all. Give yourself a timeline, a week, a month, six months, a year, whatever you need to get yourself prepared for this change in the best possible way. Knowing, of course, that if your faith is fully in the Universe and yourself, that you could make this decision right here and now as you are reading this! Create a plan of action. Ask Archangel Michael to banish In Two Minds from your head and give you the strength and courage to carry through with your dreams. Consistent action steps. Staying true to yourself.
Even if you are scared to death.
Trust in the Universe.
Trust in yourself.
