Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Singer Of Courage, from The Faeries’ Oracle, By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth
The Singer Of Courage: “Bravery, Sublimation of Fear, Moral Strength”
“Someone once said that courage is not the absence of fear but that which enables us to experience fear and not be stopped by it. It is also what enables us to do what we believe to be right even when there is pressure from others around us to do otherwise. It is what enables us to go ahead into the unknown or the perilous, where there are no guarantees of safety or security.
In our lives we are often, even constantly, confronted with a new world, a new way of being in the world, a new way of seeing and of being seen. Ordinary living takes courage, and to rise above the ordinary into the extraordinary takes even more courage. One of the keys to courage is to consider the fear and find a way to let the energy of the fear itself power the action. That is true courage.
Often people think of courage as being part of high heroism. It is, but it also has its quiet, hidden side as well – and that may require greater courage because we cannot expect the rewards of praise and approval for it. For example, no courage is needed to be unhappy and self-pitying. We do not need to be self-disciplined or wise for that. However, to open our hearts to the risks and vulnerability of joy and trust requires all of those things, especially courage.
Within each of us, there is the terrified inner mouse, and there is the brave inner heart. Either part of us can take over from the other. We get to choose which is in charge. The mouse is a magician with only one trick. It can cast an illusion that it is as big as an elephant. Then fear nearly overwhelms us – but we still have choice. Learning to live with and manage the reactive animal within involves transforming emotions like rage and fear into courage through self-discipline and the help of the Singer of Courage.”
Starter Reading: “Most people have decided by the age of three or four whatever they must do in order to survive. Form this decision, this belief about how the world is, most of our fears and self-limitations grow. Have we the courage to discover and break through these limiting beliefs, awaken to greater possibilities, and go for our objectives?
We need to transcend our fears and accept the gift of courage.”*

are the manifestation of the power of those beings that
transcend the mundane world.” – Brian Froud
What if, every single day we woke up with endless possibilities in front of us. We could do whatever we wanted, go wherever we wanted, meet whoever, eat whatever and generally experience complete fulfillment? What if we could be lead by our passions and our insatiable curiosity and zest for life? What would you do differently? Where would you go? Who would you see? What would you do? What would you leave behind?
What if you decided to take steps towards those things despite your current circumstances? Decided that you would make the necessary changes to reconfigure your life direction towards fulfillment? Degree by degree, step by step, committed action by committed action. You could completely redesign and restructure your life.
It takes courage to change. It’s not always easy. But it’s worth it if you can just take the steps with faith and trust in the Universe and yourself. Knowing that you are completely supported, unconditionally loved, and continuously guided towards the path of your Highest Good.
Every single day, you wake up with endless possibilities in front of you. See them. Have courage. Take the leap of faith.
Change. Transform. Adjust. Assimilate. Integrate. Imagine. Create. Manifest. Trust.
