Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan
Seven Of Earth: “Meditation, Grounding, Connection, Cycles, Change, Interaction, Purification, Stress”
Key Phrases: “Get out into nature. Let Gaia heal you. Connection between self and the world. All is connected and has influence. Address the stress. Meditate and still your mind. Put down the tech toys. Time to physically interact and connect.”
Meaning Of The Card: “The Seven Of Earth symbolizes a need to both nurture and maintain a connection between spirit, self, and the world around you. Ground, integrate, and connect.
To feel and embrace this connection does not require any belief in the Divine, but a simple awareness that all is connected on an energetic level. At this time, look out into the world to see, feel, and understand the cycles of life and nature and how they affect and influence you.
Over time, life and day-to-day demands may begin to wear away at us, making us irritable and reactive … less adaptable and flexible … more fearful of the changes going on within us, and around us. All of these things can make us feel alone and disconnected.
The Seven Of Earth symbolizes the importance of connection and being part of the natural world, but also the need to address areas of potential stress in your life before they become a problem.
It is time to meditate and still your mind. Make a habit of taking time to sit and meditate in nature, and allow all the stress to flow out of you and into the earth. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax and become one with Gaia and Great Spirit. Reconnect. You do not have to believe. Just allow yourself to be still, at peace, and free of the impurities and worries that cloud your sense and good judgment.”
Potential Blockage: “It is often easy to become focused on one aspect of our lives to the exclusion of all else. This can result in a real disconnect from the world and life that goes on around us.
We are all part of the world, and yet most of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, secluded and closed off to both nature and real physical interaction.
Are you missing out? Has your world become a very insular place consisting of home and office? Do you now do the majority of your socializing and human interaction via phone or computer? When was the last time you were out in the world connecting with others in a tangible manner – without looking at your latest piece of tech every five minutes?
Seven Of Earth as Challenger signifies a need to step away from technology and reconnect with family and the community at large in a mindful and present manner.”*

Today we are beckoned towards a deeper level of connection through ourselves to the natural world. Unplug. Ground. Breathe. Plant yourself in the present moment. Take a much needed break from the information highway, the daily routine. Get outside. That’s an order!
Take stock of your current stress level and what the causes of this stress are. How can you streamline? How can you release some of the stress before it becomes overwhelm? Do you need to ask for assistance? Delegate tasks that are weighing you down? Are you feeling disconnected? Isolated? Overburdened? Alone?
Heal yourself by aligning with the rhythms and cycles of the outside world. Look to Mother Nature; where she is at is where part of you is at too. The phases of the Moon; the position of the Stars in the sky; how much Sun we get in a day… it all contributes to how you are feeling. The weather, the foods available at this particular time to harvest. What you need to wear in order to keep you warm or cool. It all makes a difference. Listen to your body. Nourish it well. Exercise it. Hydrate it. Align it with nature rather than the man made world. Make space in your mind and in your heart for peace, calm and harmony.
Take breaks from people and situations that feel draining or toxic. Schedule some time for yourself every day, even if only for a few minutes of deep breathing or meditation. If possible, get outside for a walk, take a yoga class or express your creativity. Find ways that resonate with you to ground and realign with your life’s purpose.
