Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ancestor Of Knowing, from The Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan
The Ancestor Of Knowing: “I am the Ancestor Of Knowing. I am the embodiment of all knowledge, and show you the way toward proper understanding of everything around you. You may think that you know a person or a situation, without having a true appreciation of their character or significance. My clear vision offers you an illuminating perspective in all directions. I enable you to see past surface features, penetrating beneath them to arrive at a truer wisdom.”
The Ancestor Of Knowing: Long associated with far sighted wisdom, the owl makes a perfect representation of “knowing” – a concept far more profound than mere knowledge. Knowing takes us to a deeper inner sanctum where we can not only perceive but also appreciate the true nature of what we are feeling or experiencing at any given time. The Ancestor Of Knowing is a key figure who directs us on our quest for knowledge – his guidance takes us to a level of perception that transcends the shallow and the superficial, helping us to access the archetypal truths of existence.
Interpretations: Clear-sightedness. The gift of transcendence. Knowledge with Understanding. Warrior insight.”*

This is a message about clarity of vision. It is about seeing through the illusions; those set out by society, those set by ourselves as a form of protection or acceptance, and also those which are being presented to us by those who may not want to show their true selves to us. Although there may be a hint of deception here, it is most likely that you deceive yourself in clearly seeing a particular situation or person… possibly even yourself!
We set so many crazy limitations on ourselves, and most of them are based on fears and projections from others that we have gathered over our lifetimes. We put up blocks where we feel we are incapable of things, or overcompensate by deciding we can bluff our way through without learning to move through with faith, trust, ease and grace. There is someone bluffing you now and you may have had this inkling. Is it you? Telling yourself that you are not capable of something that your Soul knows full well you are capable of? Maybe it keeps nudging you forward but you are resistant. Are you holding yourself back with illusions? Or is there someone in your life pretending to be something that they are not? Only you will know what resonates with you.
The Ancestor Of Knowing is offering you a clear lens to look through, seeing your own life and those close to you in pure truth. Trust in the deep knowing that comes to you now. Know that what you seek is truth and clarity, not judgement, not action, not anger or resentment or retaliation, just knowledge. Truth. Sit with this truth before making any decisions and see if you can find compassion for this situation. Compassion for them. Compassion for you. If you can see your part, and take responsibility, then you can release this and move forward.
With grace and ease.
And so it is.
