If you selected Card 1:
Faith in the Process - No matter how powerful we are, how much courage and strength we have, there are times when we can't quite move ourselves along to the next phase of life or creative exploration. At such times we need some divine intervention - a little help in pulling our trolley along, so to speak. When we are at the edge of our own limits and have no more personal resources, we might be left with only one spiritual power, that of faith. Fortunately, that is enough! As unlikely as it may seem, the invisible help from the universe if often more powerful that the physical efforts of a thousand men. That is because the invisible help is not limited by physical laws. It can shift, bend and move in ways that defy limitation. It can affect, evoke and influence situations through invisible, but undeniably persuasive means. You are in a situation where you can't "set right" the course of events all by yourself. This is not an indication that you have done something wrong, nor does this suggest that you are not strong enough. It is a sign that there is something bigger unfolding in your life and your willpower will be supplemented by the power of life itself. Sometimes a bigger plan needs to manifest for the benefit of humanity and the earth. You need to shift your perspective to realize that you are a part of the greater unfoldment of life, that your individual life serves the greater plan and that you are not separate from its genius. This is what is happening now. You happen to be instrumental to the greater plan and as such, you need to accept your position and be moved, while also being empowered and protected as you make personal progress through your role in that grander scheme. This is a time of humility and trust. You need complete faith in the processes and events that are happening. There is nothing to worry about, you will be moved most fully and easily, and with the most grace and assistance, through your faithful surrender. Ironically, it is through complete surrender, in total faith, that we become the most empowered. When we are no longer trying to impede the perfection of the greater plan, we can be aligned with and moved by the process. Having faith in the benevolence of life - rather than harboring the suspicion that life is seeking to catch us out, have a joke at our expense, or carelessly toss us about as though we mean nothing - then we can relax a little. Having faith in the process gives you space to be curious about what is taking place and to relax enough to be open to what we are most in need of, even if we aren't exactly sure what that is or how it can happen.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
New Birth, Guarded Vigilantly - In every creative process, in every birth, in every opening of a new cycle of life, there is a vulnerability. this vulnerability is natural and appropriate. It is the goal learning to become steady on its legs. Those legs will become remarkably powerful in time, but the process of growth and maturity has to take place and that requires some wobbly first attempts. It cannot be any other way. Within you, perhaps even below the level of your conscious awareness, there is fresh new life emerging like a vibrant green shoot rising up from the earth. This new life is in need of your attention and your care. This could be a new relationship that needs tending with interest and kindness. It could be a new idea that you need to nurture into fullness because it is going to hold special purpose for your life path. It might be something within you- a new behavior, a new way of looking at yourself or a new way of being in the world-that you need to tend to until it becomes more natural for you to embody. You must pay attention to the new life emerging for you now, or that you will soon sense. You must not be careless and think it doesn't matter. It matters greatly. Being careless now is akin to killing off the idea before it has a chance to grow strong enough to withstand the criticism jealousy or sabotage by dark consciousness in others or yourself. We don't have to be frightened of destructive energy- it exists in nature and in us, and is a part of life. We do however need to be intelligent to its potential power and stay centered in our heart and in our wisdom to avoid its ill effect upon that which we are nurturing into life. You will not always need to cloak that which is young. Soon enough it will be able to stand up for itself, but for now, your vigilance and care is most certainly required hug your ideas to yourself as though they were a new lover you cannot bear to share with another. In time the world will be the lover receiving the love in your idea. For now it is for you to love, for you to hold and for you to observe. You have just given birth to a new idea that will change your life and the life of others, a new invention, a new relationship, a new profession, a new way of living and believing. Guard it carefully and nurture it as you would a newborn. Keep this new item to yourself for now, so that it is not harmed by the thoughts and words of others. Whenever you come up with something new, prepare to meet resistance. Protect. Protect. Protect yourself and your new discovery or project. No one likes the new and different. And, they like the new and improved even less, not even if it benefits them in the long run. Secret meetings will be held. Secret conversations will be had. So, for now guard your new birth fiercely, but love and nurture it, too. Give that new project extra loving attention, because today it’s in its weakest state and could crumble with one cross word.
If you chose Card 3:
In The World, Not Of The World - It is safe for you to become naked with life. This doesn't necessarily mean stripping off and running wild in public. It does means stripping back your beliefs, strongholds, and mental or emotional security blankets so that you can live with less obstruction than ever before. Imagine the conditioning that has kept life away from you, just kept it dropping out of your hands like keys, coins, or clocks. Condition beliefs about money, time, security, having, locking away, holding, and controlling can be surrendered and allowed to fall away. What would it feel like as though you were on vacation everyday? Perhaps there would be a softening in your way of life, an implicit trust and its flow and the faith in the ability of time to bend and stretch as needed so that all may be accomplished. It is at an advanced stage of our spiritual relationship with life that we are able to feel held within it sufficiently enough to surrender our defenses, layer-by-layer, and to nakedly accept what is. This Oracle comes as a message to you. Sometimes we need our defenses. At other times, it is clear we are outgrowing them. There's something that you have outgrown. It has to do with your ideas about productivity, time, control, and money. It has to do with abundance, trust, and living with the fundamental knowledge that everything is going to turn out okay. You are ready to be much more vulnerable and exposed in life. You don't have to hide behind being organized, perfect, in control or financially secure and stable. Nor do you need any other "acceptable" social face. It is time for you to loosen the strings of your own controlling nature. They are too tight and too restrictive for you anyway. You were born to live in a much freer way. When you live as you innately are, rather than how you are you have been conditioned to be, you will experience greater joy, freedom, and support. When you are not resisting yourself, or resisting life, there is less resisting what you need as it comes to you. Likewise you are being stripped of internal beliefs that are failing you, perhaps externally as well. Whether this seems to be your choice or not, make no mistake, it is your own spirit in cahoots with the loving Spirit of life that is brought the situation about. So, you are being guided to trust. You understand and know that this is all freeing you. After letting go, there comes a temporary emptiness that provides a greater space for fulfillment to come forth.
