Good day, soul friends! Black Lives Matter!
Hope your week was magical and that this week is lovely. I am quite honestly: exhausted. Hoping this Full Moon in Gemini opens up a lot of magic for us with Eclipse season kicking off the Holidays.
Today's guidance comes from the Soul's Journey Lesson Cards Oracle deck by James Van Praagh.
Which card(s) do you feel drawn to today?
Left - 1, Middle - 2, or Right - 3...
Focus on the image and chose which cards you feel drawn to before scrolling down.
Did you choose your card, yet?
If you chose Card 1:
Surrender - "I can release my need to control."
This card was the first lesson you have had to learn. It appears that this message is very strong in your reading. Constantly drawing you back to these lessons that your soul is overcoming.
You need to understand the distinction between power and control. You have the power of internal control, but very little external control over people or situations. The majority of your external control is through the power of influence. You can lead by example.
Every soul has its own unique path, and it is not your job to dictate it. Giving advice or direction in a compassionate manner is the way to go. Your soul, too, has a path, and you possess the power to control it - but you must surrender the illusion that you have control over another.
Remember that this is a process, and from time to time your ego will rise up and demand that things be the way they "should be". Envision a hot-air balloon being loaded up with all of the things you think you need to control and let them ride away in the balloon. You'll be surprised to find that when you release the energy of control and accept the energy of Surrender, doors will open that you never expected, because you have now given the Universe space in which to materialize what is needed for your highest soul growth.
If you picked Card 2:
Purpose - "I know what I am here to do."
You have chosen to reincarnate on Earth for one major goal: to express love in all that you do. The obstacles of this physical dimension can distract you from that goal, and it's easy to use your way. Life on Earth is full of obligations that require your conscious attention, but that doesn't mean you can't infuse all of your decisions with caring and compassion.
Your purpose in life is not your career; rather, your career is guided by your purpose. What activities speak to your soul? What brings you joy? That is the direction your soul is calling you toward to best convey your own unique expression of love and make a contribution to the world. If you are not happy with your current circumstances, then that is your soul telling you that there is a better way to manifest your own distinct gifts. Listen to your intuition. It is your connection to Spirit and the voice of your soul. soul.
If you selected Card 3:
Growth - "I want to expand my consciousness and my awareness."
You are constantly being presented with situations that enable you to develop your inner wisdom and assist you in advancing to higher levels of understanding. The lesson is to be aware of these events and recognize them for what they are. To live a mindful life is not only about respecting and honoring those around you; it is also about recognizing every person and circumstance on your path as a teacher. The constant charter and diversions of life on Earth can distract you from the signposts that Spirit has left on your path.
Take the time to be aware of the bountiful wisdom that has been laid before you. Acknowledge these gifts and take them to heart as you continue your sojourn in this physical dimension. Don't look for the opportunities that you think you need; instead, be receptive to the opportunities that are given.
