When I first began teaching a class (here locally) that we called “The World According To Me” more than 20 years ago, I came up with (was directed to?) a phrase which captured it all: yes, it really is that simple.

             Because, in truth, all of the big questions, the what-ifs, can be simpled down to just a few brief answers.  Or directions/suggestions.

             We so often allow our brains to make most of life way more difficult and complicated than it needs to be.  Today’s message and daily draw address this exact topic.




             None of this is new.  What we’re getting is a reminder since we tend to get stuck in our own heads.  These nudges are what will shove us back on track, back to our purpose, our journey.

             Yes, it really IS that simple.  When we relax, we are at peace and serene  and healthy.  When we release, we no longer carry anyone else’s sticks, and the burden of our own is tolerable.  When we open up to receive, we accept that there is plenty to go around and we ARE getting our fair share.

             And here, on the card altar, is our validation.  Our reassurance that it’s not any more complicated than this.

“Angel of Prayer  ~

Ask the Universe and the Angels for help and guidance.

You are never alone, nor do you need to tackle or solve everything on your own.  The universe, God/Goddess, and the angels are always listening, all you need do is ask for their help and guidance.

Prayer does not need to be formal or structured as has been tradition for so long in many religions.   You may converse with the universe, God/Goddess, the angels, ascended masters, and all beings of light and love, in your own language and in your own way.

The universal power is your loving friend.   The pure essence of creation responds immediately to all your requests, however, due to the universal law of choice, it will not act or intervene unless it is asked to do so.  Discuss the current issue along with any other fear or concern you may have with the Angel of Prayer.”

             Yesterday I forgot to mention how VERY much I enjoyed that illustration of Denise’s.  Right now, I feel the same with this one.  It reminds me of the Virgin of Guadeloupe, one of my grandmother’s favorites.

  1. Very cool message/draw combination for today. It reminds me of a couple of “stumble ons” that I came to recently (like, oh, in the past 20 years or so). One was “New Year’s Resolutions”. I have one, that I remind myself of every year: Don’t sweat the small stuff. And the other just left my head. I will reply if I remember it. Carp.

    The “small stuff” idea is exactly like my “it really is that simple” thought.

  2. Very nice message, and so true. The three R’s. I’m going to think about these as I go about my work today. So many times we shoulder responsibilities that are not ours to shoulder, and then we wonder why we’re tired and weighed down.

    Exactly, that’s why we need to make sure we’re only carrying our own sticks.

  3. Relax, release, receive. This is probably one of those that needs to go on a card. Actually, since my head tends to be a bit hard, maybe I should paint it on the walls! 🙂

    “unless it is asked to do so” This concept is discussed in “Simple Abundance” as well. You have to -ask- for the light to be turned on, for your portion of grace, etc. You need to ask and be open to receive. And you can’t do that unless you get out of your head. And that’s the hard part!

    I think that once we incorporate that “quiet time” into our day, we are already in the mindset of asking for help, and accepting it. However it arrives.
