Daily Angel Oracle Card: Meadow ~ Vulnerability, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer
Meadow ~ Vulnerability: “The meadow in this card invites us in with its beauty and openness. The flowers have arranged themselves in a poetic design orchestrated by Nature, and the lush rolling fields urge us to relax and stay for a while. Yet for some, the idea of being in such an open space is terrifying; and in an expansive meadow like this, we may feel exposed and defenseless; lacking the perceived safety of an enclosed area.
For others, walking through a meadow can be an exquisitely satisfying experience. We can feel comfortable in the openness and visibility, enjoying the 360 degree view with nothing but the sky above. Yes, we may still feel vulnerable, but with a twist. This is vulnerability built on the foundation of trust rather than fear – the capacity to trust our own instincts to tell us if there are any potential threats we must respond to. By relying on this instinctual knowing, we can relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
You are in a place now where you can take risks with your feelings, and even more important, take risks with the truth of who you are – the truth you know in your heart and soul. You no longer need to be subjected to your conditional fears of letting others know who you really are.
Yes, others may judge, evaluate, criticize, and perhaps even put you down. These are very real possibilities. Yet by trusting that you have the strength to deal with these reactions – rather than responding adaptively and always playing it safe – you can more confidently allow yourself to be vulnerable. Always holding back from expressing your truth can create an illusion of safety, but armed with your trust and your faith, you can choose to be vulnerable and share your authentic self with the world.”

You are perfect just as you are… can you see it? There is nothing that needs to change except your perception of yourself. Your angels wish you to love yourself as they love you; to see the Divine light within you that radiates out in your own unique way. Be proud of who you are, and do not let your perceived flaws hold you back, as they are just an illusion, created by ego to hold you where you are.
You are a multidimensional being. A miracle of living, breathing flesh and blood inhabited by a spirit of Light. In realizing this, you propel yourself from the limiting beliefs of the 3rd dimensional reality to the new, 5th dimension. Imagine a world where everyone loved and respected themselves, and did not need acceptance or validation from anyone else. There will be no crime, no jealousy, no feelings of lack. There will be sharing and knowing and loving and accepting.
And it starts with you. One person at a time, deciding right here and now to love themselves first. To accept themselves wholly “warts and all” as the warts are fleeting, as is the cellulite, your Dad’s nose, the wrinkles or the extra few pounds. It’s just an illusion you agreed to wear for this part of your journey…
…and in loving it you will set yourself free.
