Daily Angel Oracle Card: Steadfastness, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova
Steadfastness: “Do not waiver back and forth or be moved by the circumstances that are surrounding you at this time.”
“Be focused on your purpose and unwilling to be swayed by what other people think or by what you perceive. Ganesha heartens you by revealing that when you know your effort is not futile, you will be steadfast and immovable. This seems to be a major stumbling block in your life at this time. Perhaps your current job gives little recognition, with no real sense of accomplishment or success. You may feel unheard in your relationships. Possibly, the error lies in the fact that in your heart, you really feel your struggle is hopeless. You may recognize it on an intellectual level, but you are easily shaken when you do not see the fruit of your exertion.
Ganesha is pictured here riding the elephant to engage you in the energy of the elephant spirit. Elephants can teach you that kindness, dedication, and communication in relationships is very powerful. They remind you that it is necessary to keep relationships alive, trusting and loving, whether the relationship is with friends, family or a partner. Deeply faithful to all creatures with which they have relationships, elephants are tough when protecting others and gentle when nurturing them. The matriarch (the oldest, most experienced female leader of a herd) leads in a way that is both gentle and inclusive. Elephants are able to communicate telepathically. When you draw this card, your ability to truly listen to others is enhanced.
Do what ever is necessary to safeguard your resolve. You are receiving guidance that this is the time to dig in. Remain focused and do not get caught up in trying to create a change. The energy in your job or relationship is ever changing. Ask Ganesha to bring you the strength to work through what is happening. Stay committed and on track. Do not give up, as change will show up soon and the situation will be transformed.”*

Well if nothing else, the Universe is being very clear that we must make a shift from the external world to our own internal realm. All else is illusion. All else is the smoke and mirrors of what we think of as “reality”. Yet what if most of what we consider to be reality is not reality at all?
We are little boats on a vast ocean of possibility. But sometimes we spend so much time worrying about what all the other boats are doing, we forget to see the horizon, we forget that there is so much more going on underneath that enormous ocean. We forget to watch the sun set, and the stars come out at night. We forget how magical it is for night to turn back into daytime. We forget that we are in charge of where our boat sails; that we don’t need to follow others.
Maybe the journey has been a bit rough lately. Maybe you have been so caught up you forgot that you could explore a beautiful, protected cove. Maybe it’s time to jump ship and dive down deep into the ocean of possibility. Maybe we have outgrown our little boat; we are ready for so much more.
Everything around you has been created by your previous thoughts, feelings and belief systems. That is what dictated your boat, it’s size, it’s shape, how fast or slow it is, what it is capable of. Now it is time to make a brand new boat. Sail a brand new journey. Where anything and everything is possible for you.
Get clear on what it is that you desire to create. Do not feel that you cannot communicate this to others. Stand strong in what you believe in, and create something amazing for the highest good of all, and your highest good.
And so it is
