Daily Angel Oracle Card: Influence, from the Tao Oracle, By Ma Deva Padma
Influence: “Mutual attraction is stimulating. It is a magnetic, deeply energizing dynamic between two people that can be profoundly enriching or, on the other hand, simply an acting-out of compulsiveness and the need for self-gratification. The critical difference lies in whether or not there is genuine mutual respect.
Keeping things in perspective when the emotional climate is heating up is only possible when some balance is maintained through taking periodic breaks that allows both parties to step back from the intensity. This capacity to keep a distance enables trust to develop, and creates space for the natural rhythms between people to evolve. In the early stages of a strong mutual attraction, it is more than challenging to pull back and cool down, especially when everything inside you is driven by passion. But in any event the passage of time will surely turn down that heat, and being able to consider the relationship in the light of less obvious passions enables you to anticipate this natural process. In the way even at the outset, a passionate relationship is given a far better chance to mature and ripen rather than burn out from intensity and go stale and flat.
The power of attraction has been exploited in the media ad nauseam, and we are constantly assaulted by the use of sensual and sexual imagery to sell everything from candy to cars, fashionable attitudes, ideologies. During the course of any given day we are subjected to hundreds of such images, each carrying messages both subliminal and overt. It is difficult to tell if we are becoming desensitized to the subtleties of natural attraction. There is a danger once our desire for meaningful relationships becomes distorted by a preference for flawless fantasies over human reality.
In the presence of genuine affection, everything seems to ‘click’ without effort and there is a willingness to work with all kinds of drawbacks that in less attractive circumstances might be laws of yin and yang. Spontaneous, one on one exchanges between complementary and unique individuals is the expression, on human terms, of that interchanging between the ‘active’ yang principle and the ‘receptive yin principle. This free-flowing dance of energy creates a natural high where the outlook seems rosier, the impossible is possible, and the ordinary becomes extraordinary. It is nature with a capital N, it’s the birds and the bees, and it’s intrinsically juicy.
Natural magnetism is not defined by appearances; it need not be between a man and a woman, but can be shared between any two people. It often defines the rational and practical. Be it a friendship, partnership, or marriage, both members should be willing to openly share and trust in the sanctity of the bond, lest it simply collapse under the weight of disillusionment. To continue, there must be plenty of mutual support and nonpossessiveness and respect. A balanced relationship is not a dependency but an interdependence. It should feel more like an ongoing ‘happening’ and something static and safe.”*

As we step into ourselves we invite more love into every aspect of our lives. We are magnets for love, and it shows. There are deep connections being made starting now and continuing throughout the year, and with each connection comes a gift. The connections will come in many forms, and yes there will be passion too. And it will be different than previously experienced. More open, more honest. Like we have nothing to lose; like trust is essential and why would we throw it away?
The games are over, look for truth. Look for those who can love themselves, and be one who can receive and return this love. For in being that love, you attract more of it. For in being completely open, you allow others to open up too. There is no reason to fear, and there is no reason to run. It is safe to receive this love.
Whether you are in a relationship, or looking to be in one, things are about to get interesting, and not in a high drama way. In a deeper connection than you ever thought possible way.
Wait for it…
