A few days ago I was working on an angel message when a couple of cards popped out but I got busy with my garden and I never got to post the messages. This morning, I had a very deep conversation with my partner and I decided to draw a few cards from my angel tarot deck to show us about current energies; it was confirming what we just talked about and I also noticed how I drew the EXACT same cards I drew last time but never got to write about, this means that there is something significant in these messages for someone to hear and integrate, I hope sincerely that it will reach the people who needed to hear this.
The three cards that appeared are 'Strength', 'Seven of Cups' and 'Three of Cups', the shadow card, which depicts something in the subconscious or shadow aspect of life one may be dismissing or is not aware of is the 'Hanged Man'. (See spread below)
The angel of compassion, Zadkiel is showing us how to approach life, ourselves and situations we encounter. She is calming the beast; the beast within mankind, within ourselves (triggered ego) or a situation. It teaches us to question what true strength and power is, where it comes from, how it looks like. To me, I am seeing the lions greater or higher self, sending messages of love and compassion. Embracing ourselves and allowing ourselves to see the perspectives of others, which is only possible when we can see beyond our own triggered feelings and emotions. It is also about mastering the self through understanding what is truly happening within us and around us without judgment, fear and emotions like rage, resentment, and hatred controlling us, which is an indicator that something needs to be addressed, embraced and acknowledged and loved and healed. True healing begins within each being that makes the decision to go look within for the answers. Looking for outside things to find redemption or seeing cause and effect and blaming others or situations for how we feel is natural, but it is not very helpful in the long run. Zadkiel shows us that we need to learn to tame the beast within, so we can see clearly and embrace love, joy and compassion as our true strength, guidance and a way of being.
What shows true strength? Is it the roaring lion? Or is it the power from your compassionate heart?
Angelic message; 'Take care not to confuse the strength of compassion with the weakness of sentimentality.'
The seven of cups shows us choices, a man looking at the different types of cups (emotional states of being) in the sky (the mind/thoughts). What comes to me is that we can choose our realities we want to embrace. Looking at things from a distance and observing our own emotions and how they relate to our thinking and reactions. As an observer, we get a chance to look at ourselves to figure out cause and effect, we then get to close the gap and come to a greater understanding of the self. Which leads to harmony and peace within our minds as we make a conscious choice in how we want to live our lives. See the real truth the heart speaks of, beyond the illusions of the minds emotions. Consider responding from a place of sovereignty instead of reacting from a place of inner turmoil.
Which state of being will you choose?
Angelic Message: 'Healthy illusions provide hope and motivation, especially during transitional periods. Unhealthy illusions are misleading thoughts that lead to bad decisions that can harm both yourself and others.' (negative emotions are indicators of a problem, where healthy emotions like joy and bliss are the true guidance system)
The three of cups shows three women dancing and celebrating, their joy and emotions run high and they feel like they truly found the holy grail to life. It shows a very inclusive group of women. The divine feminine principle speaks of receiving and natural states of joy, bliss and living in a state of continuous flow of abundance, this is actually our true natural states of being, but it eludes many. Realise that in this state, others may be feeling a bit excluded, have a look around and see where you can be more inclusive and spread your joy and abundance with others to make them feel welcomed and a part of the group. Keeping it to yourself is short lived, sharing is inclusive and allows for an infinite flow of abundance to continue. Remember what you have and feel grateful for everything in your life, it is sometimes hard to see the positive when in the midst of darkness but its just an illusion, remember what is real and what truly counts in life.
Who in your life needs a hug and an encouraging word, who needs to be invited in when before you shut them out?
Angelic Message: 'Cheers to friendship! May you find joy and support in the fellowship of others.'
The shadow card I pulled is the Hanged Man. This card talks about something we may not see or realize about ourselves or a situation. something in the dark that needs to be brought to light. I felt this has to do with participation in life, as we all retract to observe and try to figure out what to think about all this, we gain a different perspective, we work on ourselves when we go into seclusion a bit to get our heads clear after exposure to so much noise. One cannot think or feel clearly with a lot of static and noise in the mind, the infinites messages cannot pass through if our heads are clogged up with distractions. But remember, staying in this position forever will swell your head and eventually one is bypassing life altogether. Once enlightened enough, one will make the decision to emerge out of the shadows of the tree and share their authentic messages and understandings one has gained. I feel this card may hint on the tendencies of bypassing problems, ignoring them and deciding not to participate or not to take any actions, inaction can also cause issues. It is wise to take time out to contemplate but it is not wise to stay there forever and ever. This card hints also on a sort of rebirthing, a sense that one may have been in a state of metamorphosis, and now is about to be reborn and bloom in all the perfect imperfections they are.
It is alright to admit not to know everything, ask the right people the right questions, participate in life to gain experiences and wisdom.
Where are you staying silent when you could really make an important impact in someone's life? '
Angelic Message: 'Sometimes, you just need to detach from a situation. Healthy detachment is not about avoidance, or numbing the emotions. It is neither kind nor unkind. Rather, it is an emotional disengagement that allows you to see what's going on with fresh eyes.
Thank you for reading ...
Love and Light on your journey
