Daily Angel Oracle Cards: Tara ~ Centering, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto
Tara ~ Centering:
“I sit with my attention focused on my breath
breathing in and out
inhaling and exhaling
taking in and letting go
the dance of creation
the dance of the universe
the dance of life
I sit in stillness
in focused awareness
breathing in and out
as the ocean that is life
churns and pulses around me
as oceans of incarnations
swirl and twirl through me
all around me
My eyes see all
and watch As I breathe
Still. Focused. Aware. Centered.
Tara (prounounced tah’rah), who originated in India and whose name means “star,” is a major Goddess in the Tibetan pantheon. She is known to help those who call upon her in tumultuous times of need, to steer a clear path, to find the stillness and strength within. She is also the Goddess of self-mastery and mysticism. From the first tear of compassion, a lake was formed. From the middle of this lake, a lotus emerged. When it bloomed, Tara emerged. Although offered reincarnation in male form, she swore to be ever incarnated as a woman.”
Meaning of the card: “Tara is here to remind you to center. It is time to nourish wholeness by going within and strengthening your center by focusing your awareness. Let the turmoil of life go on without you. It is hard to hear your own voice in the midst of the frenzy of life. Go into the quiet, go into the calm. When you return you will be stronger and more capable of dancing with what life has to offer.”*

This is the perfect extension of yesterdays message, and usually that means that we aren’t listening and need a stronger reminder… so pay attention here! Again we are directed within. Again we are centering, calming, letting go of the drama, relinquishing control of the external; giving ourselves some respite.
Most importantly, we are allowing stillness. Reconnecting. Focusing on our breathing. Letting the rest go… for now. The answers we have been looking for will surface when we are quiet enough to listen for them.
This is all about you making time for you again, reclaiming parts that are missing. Have you been putting everyone and everything in front of your own needs? Are you feeling frazzled and uninspired? Only you can take the wheel and steer yourself back in the right direction, back to passion, back to a life you love. What would the first step be? What can you let go of right now and make space for something that is important to you? Where can you expand, even if it means something else must be released? Never mind feeling selfish or guilty, this is your peace of mind at stake here, your connection to your higher purpose. Joy and passion bridge the gap.
If you are not sure where to focus this attention, then use it to explore what makes you truly happy. Know that the Universe will always work with you when you set the intention to tap into your sacred creative powers. Even if no one else seems to co-operate! Make it a priority and the stars will start to align in your favour.
