Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Creative Choice, from the Mother Mary Oracle card deck by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud
Our Lady Of Creative Choice: “You have my power within you and you are free beyond wildest imagination. Do you know that you are a slave to no thing and to no one? You are a divine being. With the power of creative choice, you can create worlds, my beloved. Even the smallest choice contains great creative power. Do not cast your power aside, my child. Choose to trust me, to live with an open, vulnerable heart, and to let my grace flood through you in rapturous waves of light. Choose wisely, creatively and well. Yet do not fear your power, for the best choice you can make is to learn from all your experiences. I will guide you to use your power to create healing difference in your life now. You have at your disposal the power of Heaven. I will guide you to use it well.
One small stone tossed into a lake can create seemingly endless ripples. So too do our choices create an impact far greater than we might at first expect. Our Lady Of Creative Choice has come to you with a message. No matter what situation is happening in your life, no matter how powerless you may feel to change it or control it, you have so much power here. If you knew how much power you had, you would laugh with relief, and wonder, and reverent joy! You would realize that you don’t have to control anything or anyone in order to feel empowered. Your power doesn’t come from controlling outcomes; it flows from your endless capacity to make choices.
Our Lady Of Creative Choice helps us when we know that the way we have been choosing to be, perhaps feeling reactive or out of control, might not be serving us anymore. Perhaps we have not felt much choice in the past. Perhaps we might have got caught up in feeling frustrated with another, or out of control in certain situations, and all we felt we could do was react. Or perhaps we have become so caught up in just trying to get things done, or work things out, that we forgot that we get to have a say in our lives.
This oracle comes to you as a reminder. You have the power of heaven within you. You don’t need to control life, beloved, but you can choose whether you dance with life responsively, or resist its flow and feel pushed around by it instead. Through paying attention to what is happening for you in the moment – whether that be feelings of happiness or sadness, a feeling of letting go, or moving on, or staying put and learning something – you can then make a choice about how you wish to respond. Your responses to your life circumstances are your choices to make, and a source of great power within.”*

Our lives are filled with moments of choice, yet we don’t see it as so because we spend so much of it on automatic pilot, plodding through routine, doing things we wish we weren’t doing and repeating the same thought patterns as we do it. Us humans are creatures of habit and when we speak of awareness, enlightenment or higher consciousness, it is actually profoundly simple. In order to reach awareness, become enlightened or expand your consciousness, you just need to WAKE UP and be here now. So easy! Right?
We can make the choice to be mindful of our thoughts. We can choose to process our emotions, even if they are uncomfortable. We can choose who to fill our time with; and make some vitally important time to ourselves. We can decide to take good care of ourselves, to love and accept ourselves. We can choose happiness and peace in the fact of adversity.
Or we can keep sleepwalking and feeling like we are too small to make a difference.
And mine too.
