Daily Angel Oracle Card: Healing, from the Osho Zen Tarot Card deck, by Osho
Healing: “It is a time when the deeply buried wounds of the past are coming to the surface, ready and available to be healed.
The figure in this card is naked, vulnerable, open to the loving touch of existence. The aura around his body is full of light, and the quality of relaxation, caring and love that surrounds him is dissolving his struggle and suffering. Lotuses of light appear on his physical body, and around the subtle energy bodies healers say surround each of us. In each of these subtle layers appears a healing crystal or pattern.
When we are under the healing influence of the King Of Water we are no longer hiding from ourselves or others. In this attitude of openness and acceptance we can b healed, and help others also to be healthy and whole.
You carry your wound. With the ego, your whole being is a wound. And you carry it around. Nobody is interested in hurting you, nobody is positively waiting to hurt you; everybody is engaged in safeguarding his own wound. Who has got the energy? But still it happens, because you are so ready to be wounded, so ready, just waiting on the brink for anything.
You cannot touch a man of Tao. Why? – because there is no one to be touched. There is no wound. He is healthy, healed, whole. This word whole is beautiful. The word heal comes from the whole, and the word holy also comes from the whole. He is whole, healed, holy.
Be aware of your wound. Do not help it to grow, let it be healed; and it will be healed only when you move to the roots. The less the head, the more the wound will head; with no head there is no wound. Live a headless life. Move as a total being, and accept things.
Just for twenty-four hours, try it – total acceptance, whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, accept it; do not react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel an energy flowing in you that you have not felt before.”*
Sometimes we hold on to our pain, using it as a shield to protect ourselves from further pain. We think that by holding on to the experience, we will be able to avoid the same experience in the future. What we don’t realize, is that by holding on to the pain, we actually create more pain within ourselves. We hurt ourselves with the past, reliving it over and over again. Analyzing it to see where we went wrong; wondering how to prevent it; building a barricade around our hearts.
It’s time to let it all go. Heal.
We can heal when we decide to start with a clean slate and an open heart. When we release the past and embrace the present, experiencing our lives moment by moment and staying true to ourselves. This does not mean that nothing bad or uncomfortable will ever happen. It does not mean that we live in denial. It means that when we are sad, we feel it and process it and let it pass through us. When we are angry we express our feelings and move forward anyway. When we are in love we wrap our warm hearts around those closest to us and knock down the barriers. It does not mean we don’t have boundaries, as we will honour our true feelings with respect and dignity. But it does mean that we listen closely to our intuition; using it for our emotional gps through life.
Allow healing and move forward. Release the past and embrace the infinite possibility of the now.
Don’t hold back.
