Daily Angel Oracle Card: Blood Angel, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli
“In the midst of the darkness,
a moon appeared with its brilliance.
Stepping down from the clouds,
It glanced at me.
Like a falcon
that hunts a bird and steals it away,
it captured me
and flew back to infinite space.
As I looked for myself,
I could not find me,
for my body had become all soul
in the tenderness of love.
The nine spheres of heaven
dissolved in that moon
as the shop of my existence
drowned in the sea of love.”
“Do you dare place a limit on how much life you can contain? I pour of myself into your heart and invite you to become nothing and everything, with me. Let us be the sunrise that greets the new day and the sunset that honours the dying of the day, in radiant glory. Let us be the angel of light arising from darkness and the starburst in the awakening heart of a human, beloved. Be the moon at the back of my heart and the sun at the front of my heart. Be wordless and wise. Let us have nothing that we know for certain and be content. Let us be all and let us be nothing. Let us be.”
“The oracle of the Blood Angel comes to you with a particular message; you are being given the gift of more life. You may experience this as growth, expansion, more energy, more life force or divine electricity circulating through your system. The Blood Angel understands that in the gift of greater life, which enables a soul to live more of its essence, becoming a more palpable divine presence upon this earth, there ware many unavoidable experiences. One of these is that there will be more sunsets to counter the increases in your sunrises! This is about balance. When opening up to receive more, one needs to empty out what has been to allow for a new influx of energy. It is not about an exchange of equal measure, for you will receive according to the great generosity of life itself, and thus even more shall be offered in the compensation for what you are willing to release. However, release must take place. Balance is the natural law. The sunset makes way for a time of night – that might be the darkness of grief, or the stirring of unknown places within that only reveal themselves in clarity the following morning. Being ready to endure the sunset and the night to become ready to receive the sunrise – and with it more life – is your divine task now.
Why is this coming to you? You are ready for it. You have outgrown what has been and it cannot satisfy your soul anymore. A part of you – your mind perhaps – may question whether or not you really want the change inherent in this oracle, divine gift or not! You may prefer that things remain the same, but what you are really wanting in that belief? Happiness? A sense of safety and security Love? Remember, that in any divine gift – no matter whether it seems to come at first through an obvious bestowal of grace, such as a wish coming true or a prayer being answered, or through a hidden grace of a loss of ending in our lives – there is always an offering of greater life within it. The Blood Angel tells you to not make yourself too small for what is happening in your soul and life now by holding onto what you know, or holding on when it is better to let go. It may not be easy, but you will gain more trust in the Divine, in you, in life, and great power and heavenly play can and will flow through your soul into the world. The Blood Angel invites you to accept the genius of life and allow it to flow through you, circulating your divine light even more abundantly into the world around you.
This oracle comes with a particular blessing of well being and vitality. You have perhaps become tired, or are well but seek to engage in new projects or practices that will stretch or challenge you. The Blood Angel brings you the blessing of whatever energy is required to expand into where life is leading you. What the Divine has instilled within your heart shall be financed with life force and energy so it may be brought to fulfillment. This is the sacred contract of human life. The journey shall be taken by the soul, and there will be challenges, and yet what is required for divine fulfillment will always be available.”*

How much space do you take up in the Universe? And how much space does the Universe take up in You? It is time to expand, Dear One.
Breath deeper, slower, more mindfully. Take time to be in the present moment. Be here now, always.
Stretch up physically, take up more space; make more space. Open your arms wide and feel your heart open too. Expand your mind and expand your consciousness. There is so much more to be experienced. Open your palms up to the sky. Lean back if you are able, open your heart to the sky.
Invite in more and more Light. Fill every cell. Yes, you are more than capable. Do you remember?
Invite in more and more Love. Be that Love. Send it out into the world, healing. Yes, you came here for that, it is part of you.
In order to remember and step into the next phase repeat this mantra as often as possible throughout your day, particularly when meditating, outdoors in nature, deep breathing, or doing yoga:
I AM LOVE. I AM Light. I AM Healing. I AM Healed.
And so it is you step into your True Divine Purpose
