Daily Angel Oracle Card: Koala, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, Artwork by Karen Branchflower published by Blue Angel
“If you come across a Koala in the wild, you will find it in one of two states – awake, feeding and tending to its young, or dozing in a fetal position, it’s rump securely wedged into the fork of a tree.
It is believed that the Koala slips into an altered state of awareness after ingesting the eucalyptus leaves that form the heart of its diet. Whilst in this state, it is mused that it can enter other realms of reality, or journey deep within the inner landscape. Once there, it is thought that the Koala gathers knowledge and is able to offer healing in ways not considered physically possible in the tangible world.
Koala also fosters the notion that, as spiritual beings, we inherently know the answers to all of our questions, with the knowledge we seek stored deep within our consciousness. Koala demonstrates the healing flight we must take in our personal quest for answers. It embraces the inner journey to the core of the deepest self.
To journey with the Koala is to quest for the ancient knowledge and spiritual awakening hidden within our consciousness. Koala represents a sacred journey that is unique for everyone, an expedition that supports the individual needs and requirements of all people.
If Koala has snoozed his way into your cards today, you are being assured that you inherently know the answers to your questions. Now is the time to start taking notice of your inner self, your innate connection to all the information of the Universe. Stop looking to others for corroboration, advice or wisdom. Take responsibility for your own life, your own path and your own destiny by listening to your heart of hearts.
Koala says that you must start your own journey; a quest that will unlock that answers you seek from a place hidden deep within your essence. The journey must begin today. Koala’s healing journey is an experience of unimaginable proportions; a flight beyond the boundaries of the physical body.
With Koala, your potential for growth and transformation strengthens and your sense of self escalates. To fully embrace Koala Dreaming, you must first take responsibility for your own healing and trust that all will evolve as it is supposed to.”*

Slow down and pay attention. We move so quickly through life sometimes we miss the finer details. There is a missing piece to the puzzle and it is right there in front of you, can you see it?
We rush around, so much to do, so much stress, so much distraction. Even when our bodies are still our minds are often going on hyperdrive. We need a break from all of this. We need to center back into ourselves, aligning body with mind and spirit… or spirit and mind with body. If you are feeling stressed or ungrounded, take some time today to do some deep breathing, grounding and centering exercises. Get back into your body and into the present. Get into the Now moment.
Crystals can help you with this, obsidian, hematite, smoky quartz, garnet or black tourmaline are great grounding stones. Try holding one in each hand, bare feet on the grass, sand or dirt and face tilted up to the sky. Feel your feet grow roots and send them right down into the center of the Earth. See your crown chakra open and a ray of light connect you from crown to Universe. Feel yourself as a conduit, a vessel for both of these powerful energies as they flow through you. Up from the Earth, through your roots, through your chakras and your meridians, and up into the sky. Down from the sky, through all your chakras and meridians and down the roots deep into the ground. Feel the energies getting stronger with each inhale and each exhale.
Once you are grounded and aligned and the energies are flowing, ask if there is a message for you. Ask for signs, confirmation or guidance. Take a few deep breaths and see what comes to you. If nothing comes, set the intention that you will receive the knowledge withing the next 24 hours. Send gratitude and love, take a few more deep breaths and know that you will receive exactly what you need in order to move forward by looking within.
