Daily Angel Oracle Card: Wisdom ~ Old Soul, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno
Wisdom ~ Old Soul: “You are a wise and beautiful old soul. This card confirms that you have taken the right course of action or have responded in a just way in a recent matter. Sometimes the best thing for all concerned is to have the strength to say ‘no.’ Your recent response will serve to empower you and all else involved.
To have wisdom is to stand in your own truth with love and respect in your heart for yourself, all of humanity, the Earth and all living things. Allow yourself to be flexible like the willow that sways with the wind yet remains strongly rooted in the earth. Life is constantly changing within and around you, yet your core essence remains the same. Love and wisdom do not change, they only grow stronger. Continue to live and respond to all in your life through love and truth, for in doing so, you honour the spirit of all living things.”*

You can practice compassion without compromising yourself. If you were to give to everyone who asked of you, there may be nothing left for you. Us Mom’s are often thinking of ourselves last, putting kids, husband, job, household chores and friends ahead of our own health and welfare. Eventually you need to take some time for you; without guilt or shame ruining it!
If you are considering saying no to an obligation, do it now! If you have just said no to something that no longer serves your highest good, give yourself a pat on the back. You simply cannot take on everything. If you are finding yourself spread very thin at the moment, then you need to heed these words and say no to a few things to create some space for silence in your life.
If you are reading this thinking there is just no way that’s going to happen? Then this message is especially for you. Yes, you!
We are shedding many old ways right now. Old ways of thinking, old friends who are not vibrating at the same frequency as we are, old limitations we had set on ourselves or were set upon us by others. We are gently releasing these people and situations, walking away free and starting new. And this is healthy, this is how it is meant to be. We are so affected by those we are close to, we must welcome those who support and accept us, and step back from those who do not hold our highest good close to their hearts.
There is less and less room for competition; the petty war of the egos. There is less and less room in our lives for those who are negative, untrustworthy, judgemental or uncaring. Soon there will be no room at all. Very soon.
You know in your heart what needs to change in order to move forward.
You have taken the first step, in wisdom and light.
