Daily Angel Oracle Card: River ~ Movement, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer
River ~ Movement: “The softened light from the sun falls upon this meandering river, the sparkles reflecting the gentle movement taking place in the river’s body.
She moves easily around the curves and rocks, sometimes gently, as portrayed in this card, and sometimes quite rapidly and intensely. Still, the river’s movement will always eventually land her in the bosom of great Grandmother Ocean.
Some of her water will evaporate along the way to feed the waters of the sky – just as it takes place in any other bodies of water – and bless the land and the seas with replenishment in a perfectly natural cycle that helps the planet sustain itself. Water if our lifeblood, a nutrient more essential than food. The flow of water throughout our own bodies serves as a metaphor for how Life itself flows through us and expresses as us.
“Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of the river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along.
Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that offer you clues about what direction your egoless Self is to be making. “Go with the flow” is more than a trite aphorism here. IT is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.”*

Things may have been a little bumpy lately, but take heart, you are almost there! Surrender to the transformation you are going through, even if it seems scary right now. Fear is a block, and will only slow down the inevitable. You can do this, just breathe.
We are tackling a challenging cycle in our lives right now; an ending and a beginning. Yet here we are, feeling right in the middle… in limbo… and asking ourselves if this is really what we signed up for! Where’s the security? Where is the safety? Bring back the complacency??? NO! All is in perfect Divine Order and by trusting in the process, the process will become easier. Loosen up on the reigns and allow. Surrender to the Divine. Trust in the Universe.
It may have seemed lately like things have been moving slower or even faster than we would like; or possibly they appeared to be moving in the complete opposite direction we expected. Or, maybe we are actually getting what we wished for and are now on the ride of our lives. (If that’s not happening for you, it is about to, buckle up!) Whichever way it is playing out for you at this time, know that it is exactly right for you… even if you are not quite feeling it!
Decide right now to stop swimming upstream and relax. Breathe, center and ground your energy and detach from the drama. Free your ego by trusting in your Soul.
You are on the right path.
Go with the flow….
