Daily Angel Oracle Card: Follow The Leader, from The Enchanted Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia
Follow The Leader: “Every life is a teaching tool for other. Your authenticity and honesty are an example to those around you.”
“You are being called to lead others by example. Your wisdom has been earned as a result of your bravery in the adventure of your life. The experiences of battles won and lost, places discovered, tears shed, and joy revealed have placed you in a unique position to be of service to others.
Your suffering has been crystallized into a talisman of wisdom. Now you must share it. By being fully authentic, you will lead others into the light. You will be required to divulge some things about your past so that you may help someone else. Lead with love. There is another message here as well. Look to those whose great character and accomplishments you admire. Emulate the leaders you respect. You will then in turn have more to offer.
If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “As Challenger, the Follow The Leader card offers a gentle push to get up and take the lead. In a relationship or partnership, be the one to voice what must be said. Muster your courage and speak your needs aloud. Affirm what you like and what you feel. Do not just hope for someone else to fix the problems you see.
If your inquiry is about a career or project, you must take the initiative to draw up a proper plan; and if it is about a personal relationship, you must be very clear about your intentions and desires. Boldly begin a discussion about how things really are and how to make the situation work for the highest good of all. Do this as soon as possible. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results.”*

You are being called to inspire! Your gifts are much needed at this time, it is time to share your light with the world. You should be proud of how far you have come, and you can use this knowledge to help others to find their way. Do not hold back.
There are aspects of yourself or your past which you may consider shadows. Maybe you have hidden them away from the light out of fear of being judged or made fun of. Maybe there are things you have lived through that have been traumatic, or decisions you made that you are not proud of. Maybe there is something that you long to do but fear rejection or ridicule. Put all those fears aside, you are being called to bring the shadows out into the light and be honest and clear. Shedding light on them will not only take away the power you have given over to them, but it will also pave the way for others to do the same. This also, is the only way to be truly authentic in the world. Honesty is key.
What you have been through, or gone through, is what brought you to where you are, right here and now. You survived it. You are brave and courageous and all the wiser for it, painful as it may have been. How can you help others do the same? How can you share your story?
Be gentle with yourself. This may take a little planning, a little contemplation. It may be so deeply hidden that it will take a while to bring it all out into the Light. But it is safe to do so, if you can stand in your power while you do it. This is about empowerment, not giving your power away.
Believe in yourself and move forward fearlessly. Others will follow.
