Daily Angel Oracle Card: Confidence, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish
Confidence: “Perhaps you are not aware of how great you really are. Maybe you have been doubting yourself or your purpose in life. Have you been questioning whether you are enough, good enough, able or worthy? IN some way you are in need of a confidence boost. And this is Spirit’s way of telling you that you are doing just fine. Spirit believes in you, and you need to believe in yourself too. It will take time and effort on your part, but the rewards of having self-confidence will be well worth it.
You may not do things perfectly; of course you will make mistakes. But mistakes are simply opportunities to learn how to do things differently. It is always easier to see the greatness in others. Seeing another person’s gifts, talents, abilities, and successes is much easier than seeing our own. This is a cosmic mirror from the Universe, and it is reflecting back to you, all of the incredible qualities that you really do have.
Sometimes we just have to fake it till we make it. And that is what you are being asked to do. Just try on the suit of confidence. Se how it fits and how it feels. You do have what it takes. You are just as gifted and wonderful as any other person. Now it is time for you to feel confident about you.
It is important to note though, this too much confidence or over-faking it can actually come across as arrogance. Heaven knows you are far from arrogant, so go gently with it. It is not about proving anything to yourself or others. It is about knowing that you are important in Spirit’s plan and that you are worthy. Who you are and what you have to offer is so very important. It is time for you to believe in You, the way Spirit believes in You.”*

There is so much pressure on us to strive for perfection. So much competition out there that we are constantly trying to keep up with. Perfect bodies, anti aging, perfectly clean houses, perfectly behaved children, nice cars and perfect vacations. It’s never ending. And when one or more of these doesn’t seem to match up to the strived-for perfection… we take it as a reflection on ourselves. We feel that we are not worthy if we can’t manage to keep all of these balls in the air to show the world that we are valuable. We think that we must try harder; or even worse we just give up and feel badly about our inability to live this perception of perfection.
It’s time to let all that go. Phew!
Breathe deeply and ground yourself by connecting to the Earth beneath your feet. Feel her heartbeat. Feel her Unconditional maternal love. Feel the magnetic pull towards the center of the planet, our beloved Mother Gaia; who nurtures us without judgment. Breathe in her love right through your feet and up into your heart chakra. Allow her energy to cleanse all these petty insecurities planted by a dismally disfunctional society. See her perfection reflected in your own. Feel the connection above and below. Know that you are an integral part of the Universe; a part of All That Is. And let the illusion go.
There are more important things to do, and our feelings of self doubt are the biggest trick we have been taught in order to keep us small.
And know, in your heart of heart, that you being uniquely, beautifully and uncompromisingly You, will always be more than enough.
Then go out and help others see their innate value as well by being true to yourself.
Pure love and acceptance are the bridge…. the only way we can break free from this material insanity.
