Daily Angel Oracle Card: Emotional Balance, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards
Emotional Balance: “Stability ~ Harmony ~ Peace ~ Fluidity”
“When your own cup is full and balanced, you will naturally have more to give and share with others.”
Card Story: “Rays of morning sun meet the mists of a new moon as a spectrum of full, balanced colour pours into a golden chalice. Water rises steadily, radiating a soft glow from all sides. Soon it will naturally overflow, feeding life within the wide open field around it. There is calm and peace here, and this cup pulses with pure potential – the essence of a life fully lived within the chalice of Emotional Balance.”
Card Message: “Our emotions are the creative engine of our experience. They are like the fiery steed that pulls the chariot of our life. If we want to know what we are creating or why things are showing up in our life the way they are, we must look first to the thoughts and feelings we generate on a daily basis.
There is an ancient saying that says, ‘Energy flows where our attention goes.’ Where we turn our focus, emotions build and experience follows. It is time to consider this wisdom in the emotional balance of your life.
Taking time to ‘fill our cup’ on the inside creates a powerful, balanced foundation for all of our actions in the world. Likewise, when we bring out attention to creating order, peace and balance in our external lives, this also facilitates harmony within. From this stable and balanced place we find ourselves more equipped to respond to life’s experiences and the emotions arising from them.
See your emotions as a natural river, cleansing, filling and flowing onward from your cup of life. Acknowledge and express your feelings. Do not let your feelings overwhelm you, but do not ignore them either. Do not allow them to build up inside to the point of bursting. Give yourself space to feel, express and integrate the energy of your emotions as they flow through you.
It is time to focus on cultivating emotional balance within. Everything else in life will fall harmoniously into place as a result.”*

Our feelings are the fuel that ignite our intentions, bringing them to life. It is the secret to full creative manifestation and co-creation. You quite literally get what you feel. You can want and desire. You can hope and you can dream. But if you feel like none of it is ever going to happen, then you won’t get what you are wishing for, you will get what you feel will happen. Or, at the very least, you will create a big block so that what you desire can’t find its way to you.
If you want the dream job, or the dream relationship or whatever it may be, you have to feel like it’s possible. You need to know it with conviction that somehow it is going to happen. You can’t feel like everyone else gets it and you don’t. Or that everyone else deserves it and you don’t. You can’t worry about how it’s going to happen, or focus on why it isn’t happening. You just have to decide it will happen and get excited about that. And then get on with your life, knowing that everything will work out in perfect divine order.
If this is a stretch for you, as it is for many who have fallen into the habit of worrying, doubting, comparing themselves to others or feeling that things never go your way, use affirmations to trick your brain into feeling differently. Take your unique situation and make the best affirmation you can possibly make and use it as your magical elixer. Write it down. Say it out loud. Repeat it in your head whenever the doubting ego starts to kick in. Be mindful of your thoughts and feelings. Learn to focus on what you want and let the rest fall away.
Balance your emotions and use their powerful energy to your advantage, they are your biggest tools to build the reality you desire… that one that lies just beyond your wildest dreams.
And so it is
