Daily Angel Oracle Card: Inner Calling, from the Oracle Of The Angels Oracle Card deck, by Mario Duguay
Inner Calling: You can choose to see your biggest challenges as your best opportunities for inner change and growth. The trials and ordeals we experience in life are actually necessary for our soul’s evolution. Take a moment to reflect back on past difficulties and identify how those experiences have made you stronger and wiser. Now, turn your attention to the present and remind yourself to take the drama out of your challenges and try to see how they are serving you.
“I choose to see challenges as ideal opportunities to work on my inner self. I look for the blessings in all situations, past and present. I am connected to the positive aspect of my experience.”*

It’s much easier to face our obstacles if we can detach from them and gain a higher perspective. This requires taking things out of the personal perspective and seeing them objectively; particularly if we are stuck in a victim mentality. We must take time to center ourselves, breathing deeply and allowing ourselves to release the tendency to be reactive and emotional; focusing instead on the clarity provided by quiet contemplation. Looking for patterns in our lives can provide us with invaluable data.
When we realize that we have, in fact, been repeating patterns over and over again, we can finally allow ourselves to acknowledge that there is a big lesson here which simply will not go away until it is learned. This could be a lesson in self love, acceptance and worth which presents itself usually as quite the opposite! If you are finding yourself treated badly in a relationship; feeling unappreciated by family and friends; or your talents unacknowledged at work, take a close look at how you view yourself. If you truly love, accept and respect yourself, you cannot tolerate this poor treatment and a decision may need to be made in order for this dynamic to change. We must have a hand in this change, taking the steps and doing the work that needs to be done in order to move forward. We must decide that we are worthy of more, set the intention to surround ourselves with healthy situations and positive people who are supportive of our highest good and decide that we are capable of returning this support in turn.
It is time to look deeply within ourselves and see the gifts and talents that are uniquely ours to share with the world. Know that by sharing these precious gifts, we can step into our true authentic selves. We are healers and we are lightworkers, the world needs us now and we are here for a reason. The challenges we are facing in our day to day lives must be resolved simply and directly in order to allow us to do what we are actually here for; otherwise they distract us from our life’s purpose while draining precious energies that would best be used elsewhere.
Heal thyself (and the drama…) and the dreams will follow.
