Daily Angel Oracle Card: Potential, from the Sacred Earth Oracle card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams artwork by Helena Nelson-Reed
Earthly Meaning: “All energy can be harnessed and used in myriad of ways. Just as elite athletes learn to use nervous energy to better their performance, it is up to you to draw on the energy stored in a negative experience to fuel your motivation, determination or creativity. Use whatever life sends you to your advantage. You can sit on the potential within you, or you can release it. It is your choice. This is not a matter of circumstance, ability or worthiness. Convert a possibility into reality.”
Spiritual Meaning: “Through grace and love, we continue to transform. Nothing we do is lost or forgotten. As we release our hidden potentials, we create our destiny. One day we shall become stars. Through this process, many future Earths shall be born where we can live as one in the arms of the Divine Mother. The ground you walk on, the rain that falls, her love is stored in everything.”
Insight: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It cannot appear from nowhere, nor can it disappear. All objects contain stored energy. This energy is measured in terms of its capacity or potential. Coal has the capacity to create heat. A stationary rock could roll downhill at a certain speed for a certain distance. The energy in running water has the potential to charge batteries. The potential is there, but the stored energy may sit dormant for millenia without ever being converted or utilized. This energy is neither negative or positive, but it can be used in any number of ways. Electricity can be used to hurt or return someone to life. There is potential in everything… in your memories, your hopes, your doubts, your strengths. How you use them is up to you.”

Again we are reminded that we may have a perceived loss, something that we though we wanted has been taken off the table. But maybe it is a redirection; maybe it is saving us from repeating old patterns of hurt or trauma that would waste our precious time and necessary growth. Maybe we need to see why things changed so rapidly, accept the lesson and move forward into something new.
How can you take what you have learned and turn it from a painful experience into an empowering one? How can you realign with your true potential? What is it about your dreams that may actually be holding you back from your life path? Are you waiting ‘until’ something or someone comes into your life to truly be happy? Are you feeling that you need someone else to fulfill you? Are you holding yourself back because you believe you need to be a certain way before you can step into a new chapter?
Let all these belief systems go. You are exactly where you need to be. You are as powerful right now as you will ever be. Find this power and use it to create your highest Potential. It is waiting for you to discover yourself and claim it.
