Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spirit Of Truth, from the Shaman’s Oracle Card deck, by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan
Spirit Of Truth: “I am the Spirit Of Truth, the foundation upon which all things are built. I open the way to understanding to an acceptance of the reality of things as they are. I strip away the veils of self deception and walk the straight path of honour. I do not turn away from truth, however harsh it may seem; and my steps are always fueled with purpose and a determination to penetrate to the heart of any matter.”
Spirit Of Truth
In a primitive world of fundamental instincts and elemental risks, there was little room for subterfuge. To survive was to live by timeless truths of body and spirit. In today’s world, truth is one of the benchmarks by which we judge ourselves – and is a necessary ingredient in the evolution of civilized values. The Spirit Of Truth ennobles us in an aura of integrity. As we walk our chosen path, it helps us to measure our progress accurately, usefully punctures our self delusions, and gives us a truer understanding of anyone en route who might offer us false security or seductive rewards.
Interpretations: Facing the future with open eyes. Responding to challenges with honesty and truth. Belief in the truthfulness of others. Seeing beyond illusion. Clear sightedness.”*

Why do we lie to ourselves? Because we think that it saves us from experiencing pain; yet all it does it put the pain off until later as we must experience it at some point, particularly if it becomes a block in our energy, stored in the physical body. We can be such optimists! No matter how dire the circumstances, no matter how miserable we are, no matter how stagnant and stuck and mired in the muck of the mundane… We can convince ourselves that things are going to get better…. even if we do nothing to change them. And sometimes this is true, miracles do happen. But isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Refusing to make even the smallest change to shake things up because we are afraid to rock the boat?
So we lie to ourselves instead. We tell ourselves that we are in love. We tell ourselves that we are happy with our jobs. We tell ourselves that we are fine the way we are. Which would all be fantastic… if that is how we actually felt deep down inside. But unfortunately, that is not exactly how the Law Of Attraction works! It goes on those deep feelings, the ones that feel strangled deep beneath. The ones that urge us to make a change. The ones that tell us that everything will be OK if we just take the leap of faith. But so often we don’t… as we stand at the threshold and wait for someone to save us; someone to give us permission; someone to open the door for us. And we wait. And we tell ourselves that it’s OK; that we really don’t deserve more than this anyway.
I am the Spirit Of Truth. Here to tell you, Dear Ones, that if you open the door, I will show you the truth of your Soul. I will lead you back to your Light. I will lift the veil of the Deep Forget and show you what you are truly capable of. But you must want to change. You must want to remember.
When you want to remember, call on me. I will be waiting.
We will take the first step towards truth together.
