Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Starting Over, from the Mother Mary Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Our Lady Of Starting Over: “Soon it will be time to leave something behind you. I know that you may grieve this loss, even when you know deep within, that it is the best to let it go. Allow me to nourish you with the courage you need, and the realization that this change is happening so that you can flourish and thrive. Your growth serves the growth of others too. You shall not cause loss or harm to that which you are releasing. All moves in my grace. Surrender your fear and doubt, and trust in my unconditional loving grace for all beings.

All situations have their purpose, but new purpose is calling you forward now. Even though it might be unfamiliar territory that you are feeling attracted towards, don’t try to hide from it or avoid it. The Mother is guiding you, telling you that this is indeed the right way forward. The timing may already be happening or will be happening soon. There is no need to force things, for you will know when it is time to move on. Yet this oracle tells you, if it doesn’t feel like time yet, it soon will.

What will this moving on look like? It could be literal, as in the end of a relationship or a business arrangement, or a change in where you live. It could be a letting go of an old identity or belief system. Or it may even be the releasing of a set of limitations that you placed on yourself because you thought that those limitations were appropriate for your age, your role in life, or some other reason, and now you are questioning that.

Our Lady Of Starting Over comes with guidance to forgive, and live, and let live. Guidance to feel all your emotions, and to make peace as honestly as you can with whatever has transpired; not to be “good” but to be free. Remember that people act according to their consciousness and wounds, perhaps doing the best that they can in the circumstance, but still not being very skillful or aware. They may cause harm, but you can move past this, even if pain was inflicted upon you personally. In time, with the mother’s help, you will feel acceptance and peace through cultivating an awareness that they must have a reason for acting in that way, and their reason has nothing to do with you and everything to do with their own consciousness and wounding. How you respond to the pain of the past is what is relevant to your own growth now.

Our Lady Of Starting Over arises when you need hep to put the past – especially a painful past – to rest. You are entering into a time when the loving mother’s support will be helpful as you step onto a new path.

She says that you are entitled to be free from all that has been. Free to treat each and every moment as a completely fresh start, so as to release guilt and shame, and to feel empowered to choose now, based on what is in your heart.

She says that her heart is larger thank all your past suffering or confusion, so trust in her to help love you through this transition and support you in starting over now. All is well, beloved. Do not worry or fear. You can trust the flow of your life, and when you need to take a step – when the timing is right, deep within – with the Mother’s assistance, you will know when to act and what to do. If you have been praying for a new start but are yet to feel that it is happening, this oracle comes with this special message for you. Your new beginning is on its way to you now. Stay in the faith of your heart and trust in the Mother’s Divine timing for you. There are some final connections, communications and resolutions that need to happen for the current phase of life to be completed karmically. It won’t be long now, and soon you will be ready and free to move on with a fresh start and a refreshed heart.”*

This message from Mother Mary is imbued with the love and light that she radiates always. Can you feel her nurturing, protective and all-encompassing shield around you? She surrounds us with support and always accepts us exactly as we are. She sees our Divine light shining through right from our Souls. She encases us in protective light as we move through this pivotal time in our lives. We are about to start a brand new chapter, and she will be there with love and support every step of the way.

In gratitude, I accept the assistance, support and unconditional love of the great Mother Mary.

Namaste

Seven Of Emotion

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Emotion, from the Guardian Angel Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue Ph.D, and Radleigh Valentine

Seven Of Emotion: “Your angels are asking you to make an important decision that you have been putting off. It is likely you know which choice you should make, but you are procrastinating so you do not upset someone else. Ask Heaven for guidance, and then make the choice that celebrates who you truly are.”

“Sometimes it can be very difficult to make a choice. We may have multiple options that appeal to us, or perhaps we do not like any of the possibilities. Listen to your intuition. Are you taking the necessary time to choose wisely? Or have you fallen into procrastination?

If your guidance tells you that you are stalling, then move forward! Your body uses feelings as a way to guide you in making correct decision. Listen to your emotional compass to know how and when to proceed. If you are still uncertain, ask your guardian angels for a sign.

Additional Meanings For This Card: Time to get focused. The need to release unhealthy choices. Unproductive daydreaming. Being unrealistic.”*

~ by Doreen Virtue Ph.D, and Radleigh Valentine

Have you been weighing your options lately? Or maybe, have you been weighing your options for a very long time? Carefully weighing each pro and con to making much needed change, never sure which direction to go on the path, yet plagued by the nagging feeling that something just has to change? Have you looked deep within only to turn away from the raw truth of the situation, the demons of fear rearing their ugly heads and scaring you away? Have you asked yourself the question, the most important question? What do I need to do in order to move forward? It’s a tough question and usually the answer is not what we would like it to be. For instance, the answer is seldom to stay right where you are, slogging it out, day after day, miserable or not. It usually has something to do with making some much needed change, getting rid of the old, making space for the new, and doing all that in spite of what others may think or do. Phew. It’s going to take some work!

Notice your breath right now. Right this very moment. Are you holding it? Are you breathing shallowly? If so, how long has this been going on for, or has it become the new normal? When we are living in anxious anticipation, struggling within our current reality, yet unable to make steps to change… we often lose the deep connection to our breath. Remember, our breath, particularly when it is full and slow and deep, grounds and centers us. It brings us back to ourselves and helps to renew our connection to the Universal Divine.

Breathe.

So, what do you need to do in order to move forward. Yes, that.

Do it.

Namaste

A Hidden Gift

Daily Angel Oracle Card: A Hidden Gift, from the Angels, Gods and Goddesses Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno

A Hidden Gift: “Sadness ~ An Ending ~ A New Beginning.”

“The angel featured on this card reflects the sadness that you feel at present or may experience sometime in the next coming weeks. Something you cherish has or may come to an end soon. It is human nature to fear change and be saddened when something we love or are emotionally attached to ends. However, this card has a positive side and reminds you that every ending heralds a new beginning. This is simply a law of nature. Nothing is ever truly lost. Things simply transform. New beginnings are in store for you, brighter and lighter than ever. There is a hidden gift attached to this event. When the timing is right you will receive a precious gift either in the form of positive news, a new revelation or an unexpected turn of events that turns out to be in your favour. Whatever it turns out to be it will, without a doubt, warm your heart and fill you with joy. In the meantime be aware of the love that surrounds you, allow it into your heart and trust. The Universe is guiding events to unfold in a way that is for your highest good.

Affirmation

I trust that all is unfolding for my highest good

Love and light fill my heart

I give thanks for the blessings I receive

Every ending marks a new beginning

All lives eternally in my heart.”*

~ By Toni Carmine Salerno

When we let go, we must face the emotions that go along with it. It’s not always easy to give something, or someone, up. If this person, situation or object represented safety and security, it can be even harder to let go and move on.  When we don’t allow ourselves to experience and process the uncomfortable emotions, such as grief, sadness and loss, they may revisit us later as anxiety or depression. Fear can masquerade as longing, regret or doubt. Processing fear, grief, sadness and loss takes courage and strength. It also takes patience, compassion and forgiveness. Think of it as a door that stays shut until the tears pry it open. There is no weakness in feeling through this density, in fact it will set us free.

When we let go we need to fully experience it, the good and the bad. We need to embrace the new sense of freedom, and cherish the memories of the past. We lived through this for a reason, acknowledge it, send gratitude and move forward fearlessly. You can do this, it is part of the journey. You are on the right path.

There is a silver lining here can you see it? Can you feel it? When you are done letting go, and space has been made for the new, something even better will enter your life, if you are willing to receive it.

The Universe has a gift for you, and it is on its way to you now.

Namaste

Attachment ~ Reversed

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Attachment ~ Reversed, from the Energy Oracle Card deck, by Sandra Anne Taylor

Attachment ~ Reversed: “Perceived Need and the Choice to Let Go.”

“This card reversed is a wonderful indicator that an old negative pattern, relationship, or desperate attitude is being released. As you continue to let go, you will be able to establish new ways of doing things and relating to others. The Universe wants to congratulate you on your healthy new approach, but be sure to support the changes you are making in your ongoing choices. Some patterns can be deeply encoded, and you may need to continue releasing the old habits, all the while honoring the new decisions in your thoughts, actions, and interactions with others. You have broken the chains, and now you can walk away from the limiting attachments into a bright and unlimited future.

Affirmation

I release attachment and choose peace. I am strong, free, and able to choose what honors me.”*

~By Sandra Anne Taylor

Remember Linus from the old Peanuts cartoon? He dragged his filthy, smelly blanket around everywhere with him for security. Many times his friends would try to convince him to get rid of the blanket,  that he didn’t need it anymore. Yet there he was, in every cartoon, doggedly dragging it around in a cloud of dust and fumes.

What have you been dragging around with you for security that is well past it’s prime? A thought pattern concerning your value, self worth or capabilities? A relationship that has been long over but you are afraid to end? A job that makes your skin crawl but you can’t muster up the courage to follow your dreams? Or maybe a vise, an unhealthy habit or addiction that has been holding you back for way too long.

Sometimes we hold on to actual weight, feeling like victims, but putting off our lives until we miraculously wake up thin one day. Maybe not what we want to hear right now, but honest is good, and it’s time to take responsibility for every aspect of our lives, as that is the only way to shift into transformation, and ultimately, freedom.

What needs to be released in order for you to move forward?

Yes, this will require some action on your part, but it’s time. What can you let go of that is no longer serving you? It may be one little belief about yourself, letting go of a victim mentality, relinquishing control of something that you never really had control over. Move through the fear of change and acknowledge it now. Again, what do you need to let go in order to move forward? Whatever first comes to mind is likely the correct answer, as much as it may cause discomfort for us to consider such a pivotal change, it is absolutely necessary.

Take a few deep breaths and find your inner stillness. See yourself walking down a familiar path through the forest. As you walk along, you admire the energy of the trees, the sunlight shining through in beams. You can hear the birds communicating with each other, and with you. Breathe in the fresh air and feel that change is coming. You come to a fork in the path and you know this fork well. One way will lead you right back around in a circle, this is the path you have always taken in the past, it is safe, you know every nook and cranny. It’s easy. The other way looks a little steeper, a little wilder and you are not sure where it might lead. There are beautiful trees there, you can see glimpses. You can hear the birds calling, beckoning to you.

Stand at this fork in the road and take a few deep breaths. Focus on your heart and allow it to guide you. Are you sure you want to keep repeating the same old pattern? Or are you ready for change? Ask for a sign that you are ready to release the old and embrace the new. If you have the courage to do so, turn away from the old, familiar, small and safe world of the old path and take a single step onto the new, unknown path. Know in your heart that you are embarking on the adventure that your Soul yearns for.

This is your leap of faith. And you are so ready for it.

Namaste

Black Tourmaline

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Black Tourmaline, from the Crystal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Judy Hall

Black Tourmaline: “Protection”

“A ribbed, dense stone, Black Tourmaline absorbs negative energy and affords excellent energetic protection, enhancing your physical vitality. Traditionally, it was said to make known the source of problems or evil deeds. It encourages altruism and rational thought.

Self Understanding: “You are an adaptive being who easily adjusts to the energy of new places and new situations. You have the gift of clarity of thought and analyze situations rapidly. Let go of over cautiousness but stay protected. You are not paranoid; you sense when people wish you ill. You may be carrying a family or past life curse. Recognize that your negative thoughts and actions harm others and yourself.

Divination: “Consolidate your plans and be realistic. You will soon see the way through obstacles. Ensure you are well protected from negative energies. Ill wishing or envy may be directed your way. Picture the stone surrounding you and neutralizing bad energy without harm to others. Watch your thoughts. Attend to practical matters. Be generous and give others freedom.

Frequency: Earthy

Chakra: Earth Star, Base Chakra

Zodiac Timing: Capricorn

Soul Path: Appropriate energy shielding and enhancement.”*

~ by Judy Hall

As you go through your transformation, you may find some resistance from the outside. Not everyone is going to be comfortable with the “New You” and there is nothing that you can really do about this, except to protect yourself from any projections of negative energies. Black Tourmaline works incredibly well to protect us from any and all negative energies, including our own. When we know that we may be coming into contact with someone who is resistant to our plans, or who is hard on us, or tends to plant seeds of doubt, Black Tourmaline will come to our aid.

Wear or carry Black Tourmaline to protect yourself from overwhelming or negative energy of others. Sometimes we have that person or situation that pushes our buttons, and this will help us to gain perspective rather than get sucked in to the drama. Black Tourmaline also works wonders in a crowded situation, such as a shopping mall, concert or fair, or family reunion, anywhere that you are not sure what kinds of energies that you may come into contact with, but you know that you are sensitive. Black Tourmaline also helps to dispel our own negative thoughts, doubts and fears and should be worn if we are prone to fear, anxiety or doubt. (Although I am not suggesting this as a substitute for medical care, and I encourage you to seek medical care if any of these feelings become overwhelming or unmanageable.)

Black Tourmaline can be placed around your home or office to purify the energies, keeping out the negative and helping to cleanse our auric fields. It can be placed under our pillows to encourage positive dreams and help to relieve nightmares. Meditate with Black Tourmaline to see where the roots of your own negative belief systems lie, and shift your perspective away from the old and into the new.

Namaste

Mountain ~ Strength

Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mountain ~ Strength, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer

Mountain ~ Strength: “The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the  blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.

The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.

It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.

The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable fo becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.”*

~by Stephen D Farmer

Sometimes we can’t make up our minds. Sometimes we make up our minds and other people change them for us; then we end up looking back and wishing that we had stuck to our guns and not changed our minds. Sometimes we don’t know what we want and we feel directionless, drifting.

What do you want to create? It sounds like such a simple question, but yet, it is one of the hardest question for many people to answer. What do you want to create? Can you describe it in detail? Can you feel it? See it? Smell, taste and touch it with you mind? Are you focusing on it daily? Hourly? Moment by moment? When you do focus on it, is it in anticipation as you feel it into being? Or is it doubtfully, knowing somewhere in your being that it’s probably never going to happen… a pipe dream?

It makes a huge difference. How you feel about it. HUGE difference.

Like happening or not happening difference. So it’s good to get that sorted out once and for all.

What do you want?

Are you willing to stand your ground for it? Be solid in your belief that you are worth it? Embrace it wholeheartedly as your birthright? Nothing and no one can stand in your way?

When you are solid in your focus, yet reaching for the stars. When you are planted firmly in the now, fully grounded on the Earth, yet your spirit soars up to the Universe. When you are stable and steady and strong.

Then, as you soar to new heights, your dreams will surround you. Worthy you. Confident you. Beautiful, unlimited, Divine: YOU.

Namaste

Effort

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Effort, from the Numerology Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Michelle Buchanan

Effort: “This card indicated a time when extra effort is required to overcome your current obstacles and challenges, as you are now being tested, and your attitude is the key. Rather than surrender to self-pity, laziness, negativity, or frustration, you must utilize your inner power, for you are must stronger than you think. When the going gets tough, the tough must get going. So pull yourself together, and have faith in your success.

By drawing this card, you are being encouraged to call upon your inner and outer resources to achieve the outcome you desire. Rather than succumb to quick fix solutions, short, or manipulation, you must plan, focus and act with tenacity and drive. With effort and determination, you will break through all restrictions that are presently holding you back.

In order to improve your current situation, you are being asked to adjust to, and harmonize with, the natural rhythm and cycles of your life – cycles that require you to put extra effort into overcoming our challenges. Never, ever give up… and your success is guaranteed.

Affirmation: With optimism, faith and effort, I overcome my challenges.”

~ Michele Buchanan

As nice as it would be, things don’t always just fall into our laps; some effort must be made in order to facilitate the manifestation process. We must roll up our sleeves and take action on our creation. Even more importantly, we must also make a big effort with our minds; keeping our thoughts positive and focused on our goal, refusing to get sidetracked by worry, doubt, fear or the opinions of others.

In fact, if you are experiencing any challenges presently, a close look at your state of mind may do wonders to help turn things around. Looking at how you are viewing the situation allows you to take responsibility for what’s happening, and also the chance to change it. Are you holding yourself back, perhaps by using the lens of past experience to look at the future? When we do this, we set ourselves up for repeating patterns as we project the pain or uncertainty of the past onto the possibility of the future. When we remove the constraints of preconceived, limiting expectations, we can make space for the Universe to provide limitless abundance.

It’s a bit to wrap your mind around! Keep your thoughts positive. Never give up on yourself. Yet, as you focus your energy upon manifesting your desires, leave space for the Universe to exceed your wildest dreams. Keep your heart open to receive. Keep your senses sharp for guidance to come through. Set your sites on the bigger, broader, expanded version of creation and anything becomes possible.

We have the resources we need, and many of them are within us. We can shift old patterns of thinking, removing blocks that have to do with our capabilities and self worth.

In other words, YES you can do it, and YES you are worth it.

Now, a little effort is needed to show the Universe you mean business~

Namaste
