Daily Angel card: Belonging ~ Ganesha, from the Whispers Of Ganesha Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova
Belonging ~ Ganesha: “Learn to find security from within”
“In this card, Ganesha uses the mouse as his vehicle, which signifies his triumph over the ego. In Hindu mythology, the mouse symbolizes the ego, for the ego can eat away at all that is good and decent in a person.
Belonging seeks to solve the predicament of the ego’s own perceived separation. Since the ego has no conscious memory of its connection to others and to Source, you experience a ‘need’ to get out of seclusion by bonding with the people around you. These people can be your family, peer groups, or your community.
The ego is neither good nor bad, but simply a necessary part of you in this existence. The ego can manifest inclinations that are either more positive or more negative in nature. There are many positive aspect to belonging: you develop your ability to love, connect, bond, share, and care for others. You see yourself more clearly through the mirror of relationship. It is important in belonging that you not try to seek approval through others.
Through this card, Ganesha is here to help you focus on the positive feelings from being a part of a community. Learn to trust, ask for help, and to rely on others.”*

Again we are asked to strengthen our connection to community, as well as extending that same connection to others. We do this without expectation or hope of approval. We do it from the heart, from gratitude and from kindness and generosity. We find fulfillment in being a part of an intricate network of communication and sharing with others of like mind, on equal ground. We must get past the old ways of hierarchy, of people climbing their way to the top… of competition and segregation and exclusion.
We are the New Earth. We are a global community. We can be here for each other. Support each other. Love each other and heal each other. We can build something so strong, so wise and so amazing that it will topple the old system. We can create a brand new way of living, of being in the world. Of creating a world of safety, of security, of abundance. This is healing.
This is huge, this call to community. It is absolutely essential that we learn to celebrate our differences and unique qualities while accepting the peaceful belief systems, cultures, religions, rituals and appearances of others. We don’t need to decide who is right and who is wrong, we only need to learn to accept them as they are, and have faith that they will find their way in the same way that we are finding our own.
If we can find a way to work together, this is what will create peace and ascension. This is what will heal us and heal the planet. But we must put away the lack mentality, the victim mentality, the aggressor mentality. We must create a circle, equal on all sides, not a pyramid where a select few stand on top of the masses.
Embrace your victory over the ego, which will allow you to truly belong.
