Daily Angel Oracle Card: Openness, from the Whispers of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova
Openness: “Observe, evaluate, and make inquiries before forming a conclusion.”
“When the moon is waning in the crescent phase, it is a good time to begin to review endeavors and correct mistakes. It is time to throw out what you no longer need and clear away excess and old energy including any clutter you may have accumulated. In addition to discarding excessive material things in your life, eliminate any unhealthy behaviours and relationships.
You may find that you are trying to decide between two options. This card is not about making a decision, but more about taking the time to really listen to your heart and your inner voice. Ganesha advises you to gain more information before you act. This knowledge can be in many forms including your innate knowledge, self-knowledge, secret knowledge or even more esoteric wisdom. You may find that what you are attaining might be both mysterious and magical.
You are in a conscious process of creative release. Give thanks and gratitude for the things that you have accomplished. Do not feel rushed or pressured to begin a new undertaking. Review your goals and regroup accordingly. Once you have all of the necessary information, you will begin to feel motivated to set some new goals and start new projects.”*

Sometimes it’s difficult to be open if you have been hurt before. Maybe you feel too vulnerable, maybe you feel too wide open and unable to protect yourself. Maybe it scares you a little, or a lot. I get it, I feel the same way! I’ve been through a lot and sometimes that stuff comes back to haunt you. It gets hard to trust people, even those who you want to open yourself to. It feels so scary, like you are putting yourself out there and anything could happen… you could get hurt again….
But what if you didn’t get hurt again, but you didn’t know it because you didn’t open up to the possibility that things could be different this time? What if you kept your heart closely guarded? What if no one could get past that fortress that you have created? And what if you missed out on something amazing because of it?
You have a decision to make, and it may not be an easy one. Open up or stay shut down. Awaken or stay asleep. Move forward fearlessly or stay stuck?
Only you can decide. To trust. To love. To open up. To receive. To allow.
To no longer be lead by fear. To trust that the Universe has something better in mind for you. That you are supported and accepted and loved.
Yes, it is your responsibility to watch for red flags, this is not a blindly diving into something unhealthy. It is merely opening up and giving it a chance.
