Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Right Choice, from the Rumi Oracle, By Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli
“Stay close to those who know about the heart.
Choose the shade of a tree
that is in constant bloom.
Don’t meander aimlessly
among the herb sellers and potion venders.
Go directly to the shop
that sells nothing but sweets!
Don’t sit waiting by every boiling pot
to have your plate filled!
Not every boiling pot
is cooking what you want.
Not every sugar cane is filled with sugar.
Not every down has an up.
Not every eye has vision.
Not every sea contains pearls.”
“Within you, I recognize my most trusted friend. Ah, we go back a long way to before that moment when time began. We knew each other then, even before time was born.
So I say, ‘Hello my old and dear friend, so lovely for us to meet again.’ And I feel how your heart responds with a wave of love, for it is that love that is you, my most trusted friend.”
“On the path of love there is not so much wrong and right in the moral sense, so much as what is wrong or right for you. The mind cannot help so much here. Only the heart can speak such truths. The mind may reject it, recoil, analyze and find all the reasons why the simple truth – the right choice of the heart – cannot possibly work and only lead to pain. That is what the mind does rather well, actually. But it doesn’t mean the right choice – the heart choice – becomes incorrect. It means rather, that the heart has outsmarted the mind, and the mind will need to bow to the heart, even without understanding its sometimes impenetrable mysteries. Or one can choose to stay in inner conflict, fighting against the right choice, bur eventually love will prevail and the way forward must be taken.
So you can give up what you have planned, believed or decided. Let the heart wisdom, that silently and constantly boadcasts its pure and true intention into the fertile womb of the universe, lead the way instead. It will lead you along the right path, to the right house where sits the right master for you. He grabs you in a bear hug and gently whispers into your hear, ‘What took you so long? I’ve been waiting for you since the day you were born. Now we are together, it is time for us to play!’
It is said that one man’s meat is another man’s poison. To base your choices on what others have chosen for themselves may end up killing you. Better to take your risks on the angel of your own heart, wise as that being is, and dance to your own heart rhythm instead. There may be fear if others seem to be dancing different steps; but beloved, you know that is just because every heart has its own unique rhythm, and yours doesn’t want to waltz, so much as to tango. So why not allow it to be thus without fear or doubt?
This oracle comes with a message for you. In your heart you know what holds meaning for you. You may or may not have a grand vision to go along with that meaning as yet, but deep within, you know what is without value and what holds value – for you. You were born with those values intact, in your heart, and whatever confusion has arisen for you along the way is just where the values of others have transfused into your own blood. It is time for a transfusion of holy light into that blood, to be cleansed and purified, restored to it’s integrity and filled with passion for what is rightfully yours – your unique passion and purpose.
If you have been concerned about your path and what steps to take next, this oracle comes as an omen of good things headed your way: clarity, reassurance, truth and revelation. Don’t hold onto a belief system or vision if it appears to be tossed on its head. Let things go the way they will and good fortune will prevail for you. that vision might actually have been upside down all this time, and suddenly able to go right itself and be born for you if allowed to topple. Or perhaps there is a more fulfilling version or your vision lurking in its remnants, to be scooped up by your soul with its hawk-vision and eagle-deftness. Trust that if you are being drawn away from a tantalizing sweet shop, there is a more decisions array of confection just around the corner for you. So yes, have your tantrum if you must, but you will be sheepish soon when you realize the hand of the Great Beloved that removes is the same hand that bestows even greater gifts.”
Sacred Honouring Ritual”
“Turn the palms of your hands down towards the earth.
Say aloud: “With gratitude and trust, I release that which is not rightfully mine.”
Open your hands upwards towards the sky.
Say aloud: “I give thanks for the grace that is bestowed upon me now as I accept my rightful divine inheritance.”
Stand with your hands in prayer at your heart and say aloud: “I honour my heart wisdom. May my heart always be my leading light, showing me the way of grace. So be it.”
You have completed your honouring ritual.”*

Ego is no longer in charge. Yes it serves a purpose, but Heart, lead by Soul is taking the reins. In this transformational time, ego would have us shivering in fear, withholding love, living in fear. Heart knows better; it is Love that will set us free. There is so much love to give; so much to receive. It is time to open our hearts and experience the Divine through this Love; becoming vessels of Light; portals of Light. This is ascension.
Fear is a brick around the neck. It is constantly blocking the way with the “what if’s” and the “watch out’s,” the “should’s” and the “look what happened before’s”…. let all that go….
Embrace Love and know that it is the most powerful force in the Universe.
It is why we are here. The building block of our very existence.
Take the leap of faith and ask, what else is there, but love?
Take the leap of faith and open your heart fearlessly; give and receive Love.
I AM Love
And so it is
We turn the world right side up
