Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Phoenix, from the Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid
The Phoenix as both Ally and Challenger: “Resurrection ~ Surrender To Change”
“The Phoenix appears as your Ally to celebrate your journey and to ensure your ultimate success. This is true even if it appears that you have just passed through a metaphorical experience of death or are currently enduring a perception of failure in your life.
Death and rebirth are related when you enter the realm of the Phoenix. Seen in this light, nothing truly dies, but rather changes from one ending directly into new beginnings. The Phoenix is constantly reinventing itself and rises up whole and new and even more powerful with every death it experiences. This could signal an end of a relationship – or of a dynamic within one – or an end of a job, a project, or even a life.
Perhaps no failure is involved, but it is time for a complete overhaul of your circumstances. You may be tired of what you are doing, or you may know intuitively that it is time to move on and try something new. Whatever the case, a death of the old and a celebration of new life are called for! Whatever you do now will indeed be a successful endeavor, for a rebirth is imminent!
When the Phoenix challenges you, it is really just a gentle reminder to let go and let what doesn’t work fall away. Maybe you are not allowing things to change because you are more comfortable with the familiar, even if you know that it’s not the best you could create for yourself.
Fear of change is a crippling experience, as it works against Nature itself. The task at hand is to allow for an ending, as it is timely and right that you do so for the highest good of all. In surrendering to the fundamental purposeful change, you will most definitely find yourself in better circumstances. The action needed is allowing. A rebirth is assured.” *

Whatever is happening in your life right now is happening for a very important reason. Trust in the timing and please, do not struggle, Dear One, but feel our warm embrace, holding you safely as you transform from the old, and rise up from the ashes into the New. All is as it should be, receive this change with our full support, we are only a heartbeat away.
We cling on for dear life to that which seems safe and familiar, yet we are missing the miracles on offer through accepting new opportunity. Go ahead and close the door behind you, as there is absolutely no doubt what so ever that a new, brighter and much bigger door is just bursting to open up to you.
Take a deep breath and center yourself. You are standing in the doorway. You have been standing here for quite some while now; the energy is low here and there isn’t a lot of light…. it’s an in-between realm. Fear has held you here for a long time, but you are ready to move through the doorway now. Take a deep breath and a big step forward with your left foot. Feel the sunshine on your face and a warm breeze. Look back at the doorway and feel that it is a vacuum… you can feel the pull of it, that old familiar place of complacency; stagnancy; perceived security. Yet as you look, you can see how dark and dingy it is, more than you noticed before. There are cracks and cobwebs and dust; how did you not notice how dreary it was? You reach for the door knob and gently but very firmly close the door. And immediately, the doorway recedes, getting smaller, much less scary, almost insignificant. There is so much light around you now and you realize that it is coming from behind you, where a big, huge gate has opened up, warm white bright light spilling though. With a big, deep breath and a smile, you move forward towards this new gateway. With each step you take you feel lighter, calmer, more joyful.
Free at last.
To create your wildest dreams and deepest desires in this brand new, shiny, bright dimension.
And so it is.
