Daily Angel Oracle Card: Guardian Angel ~ Learning Experience, from the Saints and Angels Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
Guardian Angel ~ Learning Experience: This situation is an opportunity for you to learn some important life lessons. Instead of looking at this experience as a problem, see it as something that will help you to learn and grow. Some of the valuable qualities that you are acquiring include strength, patience, forgiveness, and perseverance. Similar to the angel in the painting, who is holding a glowing white dove, this is an opportunity to shine even more brightly.
Notice any familiar aspects of this situation: Are there things that you are tired of and are ready to let go of? Once you extract the blessing within the pattern, it will not need to repeat itself anymore. You will have learned the necessary lesson, and you can be free from it for good.
Your guardian angel will help you see the current situation in a more positive light, as well as identify the lessons involved and heal away unwanted patterns. Simply ask your angel for help with these issues, and then pay close attention to any loving thoughts or feelings that guide you to take action.”*
– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
We all have patterns in our lives. We may go around and around, trying out various solutions only to find yourself in the very same predicament. When this happens we have two choices: See ourselves as hapless victims and feel powerless in the face of this adversity; or acknowledge the lesson, no matter how hard and release the pattern. Often, if this pattern involves other people, or your livelihood, it may be that you have the perception that it is harder to release. What if you have to hurt someone in order to free yourself from the pattern? What if that meant that other people may judge you harshly; consider you selfish? What if you had to quit a job that provides you with enough money to support you, but you hate it? How do you decide when to throw in the towel and trade safety, security, mediocrity and compromise… for the leap of faith that may just lead to joy, fulfillment and limitless opportunity?
Your team of guides, your guardians, are gently urging you to look closely at the patterns in your life right now. What is the theme in your relationships? Where are you headed with your career? How is your family dynamic? How is the balance of support in your friendships? Where is the pattern that may be holding you back? And how can it be rectified? Look with loving eyes, for all those who are in your life are there on a Soul level to teach you what you need to learn in this lifetime. They may seem far from their own Soul paths; they may not be treating you well, but they are here for a reason, and eventually it will all lead back to love.
Acknowledge the lesson and then give yourself permission to start looking for a new way to live without this lesson. Invite your Guardian Angel to send you the people and opportunities you need in order to progress past this and into a more loving and peaceful space. Know that no matter what, you are worthy to shed this pattern and move on to something brighter and happier.
For the highest good of all involved, by the Grace of the Universe.
And so it is.
