Daily Angel Oracle Card: Quan Yin ~ Let It Go, from the Ascended Masters Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
Quan Yin: “Let It Go”
“It is time to stop struggling, pushing, or forcing things to happen. Such actions push against the universal flow and lead to frustrations and blocks. When you let the situation go to Spirit, you automatically open supportive doors that will bring solutions and an outcome exceeding your expectations. Let go of struggle, anger, unforgiveness, or anything else undesirable. Trust that the Universe is on your side.”
Additional Meanings For This Card: “Let go of an argument, judgments, or long term hurt. Have compassion for everyone involved in this situation, including yourself. Be gentle with yourself. Forgive yourself for what you think you have done or not done.”
“Quan Yin is the beloved Buddhist goddess of compassion whose name means “She who hears all prayers.” At her mortal death, Quan Yin was eligible for Buddhahood, yet she decided to stay close to the Earth and help all humans until everyone became enlightened. You can call upon Quan Yin for help with forgiveness and compassion and to have your needs met in gentle and loving ways.”*

Here Quan Yin comes to remind us that we need not force things to have them happen in our lives, that although we are guided to use clear intention and take steps towards what we desire to manifest, we need not use brute force! There is no hastening the river! Sometimes we must complete a cycle before starting on the next; tie up loose ends before starting on the next chapter. We also must let go of the need to control, and to have things look exactly as we want them to look.
Does that seem contradictory? Focus on what you want, but don’t get all caught up in the expectations… hmmm how do you process that? One of the most powerful tools I have used is to ask the Universe for “this or something better,” which allows some space for my socks to be blown off in the process! We are such limited thinkers, us humans! And we try so hard to colour in the lines that we sometimes lose the magic in the process. What if you were so busy colouring in the lines on your little printed out mandala, and the Universe brought in a mural the size of a bill board! That is how fast things can happen and sometimes we think we know what’s best, but we really just want the feeling that goes along with it.
So, when you set your intention and start taking steps towards creating your dreams, always leave some wiggle room for surprises, miracles and gifts from the Universe along the way. Keep in mind that the journey itself is where the magic of the lesson lies. And that no matter what you think you want, the Universe can conjure up something even better!
