Daily Angel Oracle Card: Focus On The Light, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison
Focus On The Light: “A tremendous force of light is gathering around you. It is attracted to the purity of your intention to create from your heart. As your intention grows, so does the light. As the light grows, so does your intention. Magic wants to happen for you now! The synchronicity, perfect timing, opportunities and information that are needed will seem to be drawn right to your door. You may start to feel as if you cannot walk outside without stumbling into something helpful, wonderful and inspiring.
You might be startled as this interplay of light with your heart evokes many new successes and attracts an abundance of opportunities your way. You may need to adjust as the field of light grows stronger and its effect becomes more palpable. It may be uncomfortable or feel out of your depth with these changes. This would be understandable, but it would be a shame for you to hold on to that resistance for anything more than a brief moment. Any resistance or fear will inhibit the continuing free flow of the light so that it can manifest its beauty through you, in the physical world, where it is needed.
It is best to stay focused on your pure heart and intentions. Just allow all else to happen of its own accord, without making it mean anything too personal. Simply let it be the workings of the great light of love, flowing through a pure heart and touching the world. Even if the light is drawn to you and flows through you has some dazzling effects, you don’t have to get caught up in it. Doing so might start you worrying that you are unworthy or that you are unable to keep up. This worry will constrict possibilities rather than allowing the free flow of the light. You have permission simply to be appreciative of the light and to enjoy it as you continue to focus on what really matters – the pure intention of your heart and your desire to create.
If you are not sure what this means, or how it would look on a practical level, consider this example. A service oriented business becomes very successful financially and gains considerable commercial power which can be used to help promote its message or assist other organizations in gaining exposure to the public. Of course, that power could be used in less pure ways such as boosting personal ego rather than promoting the agenda of the heart. Power games and politics might start erupting, as the people grab for their share and suddenly the purity of the project begins to crumble.
Sometimes success can be like a powerful mirror and a shining searchlight as it shows up what was already within someone or a group of people. Under the spotlight of success it is more intense, amplified and obvious. This can give us an opportunity to sow the seeds of our own destruction, or to work on what arises from a heart-centered perspective to create a firmer foundation that supports even greater attainment.
How would that work in this example? By returning attention to the heart of why the business was started in the first place. It is wise to maintain focus on the pure, original motivation for the work, rather than shifting course to focus on money or influence. The latter are not bad, per se, but they are a rather different vibration, focused on personal gain rather than heart-centered contribution. When focus shifts from the heart, the underlying energy of any creative project can become contaminated with lower vibrational forces such as fear (which is behind greed, for example). If this is not rectified, that business or creative project will begin to change. It will lose the lustre of its original purpose that made it so attractive and magnetic to the light. Its continued ability to grow as a light in the world is diminished. It may end up becoming just another corporate machine, successful according to more conventional measures, or not. The genuine heart-centered success that creates a win-win field of energy for all involved can only be attained, nurtured and expanded when those creating the project or business remain focused on the purity of their own original intentions.
This oracle brings an assurance of success of the highest order not just commercially, but from the heart. It will manifest as a highly valuable offering to the world. This applies to a project, endeavour or organization in which you are involved. Your heart will help you realize which group or project it applies to. It may be more than one. However, you must stay focused. Enjoy the glittering lights of success but don’t be distracted by them. Stay on point with what you want to create and why. Stay true to yourself.
This oracle also brings another message. Don’t be distracted by other paths around you at this time as you are too close to succeeding on the one you are on now! Diluting your energies, in the pursuit of too much will slow down your success and the world needs your light to shine sooner rather than later! In time you may diversify and explore other ways to express yourself but for now, build what you are working on and know that success is coming swiftly.”
Healing Process: “Imagine that a huge sunflower is following the sun, from sunrise to sunset. Imagine a golden arc of light being created by the gently moving head of the sunflower.
That arc of light flips upside down, to become a vessel filled with golden energy that drops down like a rainfall of energy, from the golden orb of the sun.
Imagine you can bathe in the vessel of golden energy. It feels good. Stay with that good feeling and let it settle in your heart.
In your own time, just open your eyes. You have completed your healing process.”*

This is such an interesting message and so relevant in today’s world. We find inspiration in a small idea, and it sets our hearts on fire with passion and longing. After a time of hoping, wishing praying, daydreaming and imagining… the idea starts to take on an energy of its own. Unable to keep it under wraps any longer, we move forward into a phase of action and creative manifestation, taking the highest care to create with integrity and love. We hold this project close to our hearts and want it to be expressed in the highest possible way. We see it changing lives, helping others, growing into something beautiful and profound. Success comes, we are blown away by the positive force we have created; how openly it is received.
This is the crucial time. This is the tipping point…
Will we continue on as we are? Creating from the heart for the Highest Good?
Or will we be swept away by the success of it all…
Will we stick to our guns as far as quality goes? Or will it become about the margins, the almight dollar as it were….
We see this literally everywhere. From politicians who make promises they have no intention of keeping, to our favourite restaurant that started to cut corners and just isn’t as good as it used to be. We see it with paper towels that charge more for half as many, or bags of chips that are 1/4 full at the bottom of the bag. We see it with memberships that suddenly don’t include all the perks they did when we first signed up. And with service givers who have cut back on service and upped cost to their clientelle.
So what happened? Why do we start off with passion and zeal only to end up in a lack mentality of greed and hoarding? Why can’t we stick with what we have said in the beginning, why does it always have to be about the money?
Often it is simply because it is expensive these days. Everything is. Fear sets in and we start to feel that we have overextened ourselves. We burn out too fast. We stop believing that we are doing this for the right reasons and it becomes about financial gain. We want to live from the heart but hey, there’s bills to be paid and it would be great to have a bigger house, a nicer car and a few vacations a year.
So how do we find the balance between passion and prosperity? How do we put a hundred percent in and know that we will get the return?
To me, it’s about having absolute faith that if you continue to create from the heart, success will still flow. That when you go for the best margins, cut costs and up the profits you eventually sully the energy of the product you are offering. It is about knowing that what you have to offer is of the highest integrity and sticking to your vision. It is about working through the fear, the lack, the pressure and the doubt and coming back to the heart.
Staying focused on the Light.
And so it is
