Daily Angel Oracle Card: Koala, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards
Koala: “Calm ~ Imagination ~ Ease”
The Gift: “Koalas are not bears. They are marsupials, meaning that they carry their young in a pouch. When they are born, Koalas are only as big as a jellybean! The joey (baby Koala) stays in his mother’s pouch for the first six months, then rides on her back until he is ready to venture out on his own. He has two thumbs on each front paw to help him climb, grab and hold. He communicates with family and friends with a special “bellow” that sounds like someone snoring!”
The Message: “Koala is calm and peaceful in everything he does and this is his call to you. When the world rushes and people hurry, it is easy to think that we should hurry too. But sometimes when we rush we make mistakes and then we have to take even more time to do things over again. Koala’s message is to slow down, take care of yourself and take your time to do things right. Calm, focused effort is more powerful than trying to do everything at once. Koala smiles and says breathe deep, enjoy this moment and the gift of doing one thing at at time! Even if that one thing is taking time to rest (Koala sleeps for up to 20 hours every day)!”
The Call: “Koala’s call of this week is to become a mighty force of peace and calm in the world! Wow! That sounds like a big mission! How do you do this? Simply by taking time to bring peace and calm into your own life. Do things you love, do things that make you feel calm, happy and relaxed and you will naturally bring this energy into the world around you! Start right now, simply by closing your eyes and taking three long, deep, slow breaths into your belly – with a smile on your face! Ahhh… the world is more peaceful already!”*

Breathe! Slow down…. yes, you! Breathe! Relax. Bring those shoulders back down from up around your ears. In fact, if you can, right now, stand up and shake it all out; all the stress, all that pent up energy. It might have been making you feel jittery, or it might have been bogging you down, but either way, if you move, it will move too. Then take a few moments to realign your energy. Breathe.
Have you been feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders? Feeling as if you would like to fix everything for everyone and put yourself on the back burner? Have you been spreading yourself a bit thin lately? Or have you been feeling that there is too much obligation in your life right not and not enough fun? Either way something needs to change. Take a little time to yourself to regroup, and promise to find some time weekly or even daily to incorporate doing what you love. It’s vital to your well being and you deserve it!
This is all part of the creative process, and it starts with you giving yourself permission to be you… truly, authentically, joyfully YOU! Remember that the biggest gift you have to share with the world is your light. When you shine your light through your love and create joy around you, you raise the vibration of the planet. This is true healing; lightening the weight of the world.
With your beautiful Soul.
