Daily Angel Oracle Card: Insight, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards, published by Blue Angel
Insight: “Understanding, Awakening, Awareness, Self-Evaluation”
“Recognize the higher truth beyond apparent limits. Honour the path you have walked so fear and all you have become. Know thyself.”
Card Story: “Cradled at the base of a circular window, with her back to the wide expanse of stars beyond, a woman sits in silent meditation. Grounded by her breath and the ancient stone beneath her, she is a clear channel of quiet knowing. With her inner eye focused and heart brightly opened, she basks in the vision of her own truth. Rays of Universal light shine on through. Insight.”
Card Message: “This card is about self-evaluation and self-understanding. In our modern world, there is so much sharing of information through such a wide variety of mediums (internet, phone, tv, radio, word of mouth, etc) that we can quickly fall into the habit of looking outside of ourselves for the answers that we seek. We value others’ opinions beyond our own, to know what to eat, how to act, how to dream, where to live and who to love.
Taking time to truly know ourselves expands our awareness. It makes it easier to grow from our experiences. Not only does it give us strength of character but it allows us a greater understanding of other people and our surroundings – allowing us to see beyond surface circumstances into the deeper currents within. This is insight.
It is time to cultivate insight by honestly examining who you are – your past journey and who you have now become. It is also time to claim your Divine capacity (and responsibility) to see beyond the current ‘you’ and to recognize your unique truth and potential.
With a clear lens of non-judgment, consider your experiences, your relationships and the lifestyle you lead. Reflect upon the experiences that have most strongly influenced your path. What traits and habits have you developed, inherited and absorbed along the way? Are you living in alignment with the person you truly came her to be?
Some aspects, you will love about yourself and these may be your strengths. If there are some you are not proud of, then this is the first step to deciding how you may like to change certain aspects about how you are living. Insight allows you to choose to change or shift your path, in a positive and fulfilling direction.
Through the lens of insight we are able to make better choices in our life and to create a future we desire. We are able to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Insight allows empathy, understanding and compassion for other people which can only benefit any relationships we choose to engage in.
Insight raises your consciousness, adding a spark to the ever unfolding light of universal consciousness.”*

Perfect synchronicity to yesterday’s message. We must learn to rely on ourselves. Listen to our hearts and souls, looking inward instead of outside of ourselves for the answers we seek. We have everything we need in order to move forward, we must allow ourselves to grow and evolve. We are often what holds us back, fear of failure, of rejection or judgment of others. We lose courage and lack the strength to carry on. We look to others to tell us which way to go, how to live our lives. We don’t trust ourselves to make the right decision.
If we look closely at what we have learned from our perceived mistakes, we can acknowledge the wisdom within. Then we no longer have to fear repeating old patterns, we can safely move forward into something new. We can let go of the pain from every level, body, mind and spirit, no longer allowing it to hold us hostage.
You are who you are not despite but because of everything you have gone through. And painful as it may have been, it’s ok to move past it now. You are beautiful and powerful and passionate and you have so much to share with the world. Remember? You are a Spiritual Gangster.
And now, you can embrace the gift of insight and use it to move forward on your journey.
