Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mythic Reality, from the Magdalene Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Mythic Reality: “Something is causing you concern at present because you are viewing the situation from only one perspective. Look with an open heart and mind and you may see that a positive side also exists. Things may very well turn in your favor if you let go of preconceived ideas and rigid views. There are at least two perspectives from which to view every situation. What you see at present is only part of the picture. Often, what seems real to us may not necessarily be what is actually occurring. The true purpose of many of life’s events is often unclear because of our false assumptions, fears and misconceptions.
There is no need for concern; just allow things to naturally unfold and all will become clear to you. Remember, you may not have the power to change the world or many of the events in your life, but you have the power to change your perception of them.
~ All becomes clear when I view it from a higher perspective”*

Many of us think that by imagining the “worst case scenario” we are somehow either preparing ourselves to deal with it, or better yet, protecting ourselves from it happening. We build things up in our mind as if they are much larger, tougher and bigger than they actually are. We base our thoughts on our past experiences of hurt, pain, fear and rejection rather than deciding to expect the best. It is time to shift this mentality, as it is no longer necessary to think from the worst angle forwards!
Something you perceive about a certain situation in your life is holding you back. It may be someone’s reaction, it may be fear of rejection, or it could even be fear of success leading to making someone you are close to uncomfortable. Maybe it is the idea of inevitable change that holds you back. Maybe it is knowing that you will have to stand on your own two feet that is holding you back. Regardless of what it is, it is simply a detail and a metaphor for where you are at in your life right now.
It’s time to give yourself permission to move forward with grace and ease. Let the scary stuff stay behind, you don’t need it anymore, of course you will realize you never really did!
Faith is required at this time to step around and away from your “worst case scenario” and decide that you will trust in the Universe to guide you to exactly where you need to be in order to progress. Surrender. Trust. Receive. Know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are capable of taking on whatever comes you way.
Look at the picture in this card. The path is lit but the journey seems dark. Yet there in the distance, is a brilliantly lit castle or structure. A bright rainbow and a starry sky. It speaks of trust, of treasure and of a bright future. Of support from your angels and guides.
But you must decide now to place one foot in front of the other, and walk your path.
All the way to the light.
