In my (self-appointed protective) poking around the internetz recently, I came across a brilliant young woman (no link to found, sorry). She had an inspired suggestion:
“Instead of telling you to have a nice day, I have another, perhaps better, idea. Because, not all of us CAN have a nice day, not all of us are capable of that right now. We maybe are only able to just get through the day. I’m going to wish for you to have a day. To survive it, so that you can, later (hopefully) sleep, and then get up tomorrow. ‘Tomorrow’ is always a new opportunity.”
That’s where I am, currently. I’m just able to have a day. I’m hoping for all of you that your day is good, but if it can’t be good, then at least have the day. Tomorrow will be our next chance.
In its usually validating way, here is the Universe chiming in. More truth, if all we can do on this day is air-in/air-out, that’s still an accomplishment.
‘Take several deep breaths, exhale slowly to awaken your energy and release old patterns.’
‘Often during times of stress, you may unconsciously hold your breath. Yet, as we know, breath is essential to oxygenating your mind, body, spirit, and very life.
Write a note to yourself to breathe, as a reminder of the importance of invigoration yourself with deep and steady breaths.’
Working with Archangel Raphael:
Raphael will give us Divine guidance (intuition, thoughts, ideas, dreams) about how we can participate in keeping our bodies healthy.
When you call upon this archangel for healing, pay special attention to inner impressions, and be sure to follow through upon guidance which calls you to take action.”
Archangel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue
is a small note about Doreen. Many folks in various spiritual communities have “broken up” with her lately. She’s turned a new leaf in her life, and some people aren’t fans.
For me, personally (now that I’m barely learning about Change lessons), I can see how it would be challenging to watch a teacher and leader going another direction, and in that sense, discrediting much of what we still believe to be true. Of course, I can also understand how she needs to grow and absorb her lessons in her own way.
For the purposes of this website, we are going to carry on as if she were no longer with us, and just allow her to move along in her journey. We’ll continue to draw from her cards, guidebooks, pertinent sources, and accept that which serves us in the best and most positive way, as we’ve always done.
There is still great validity in what she originally channeled, and vast amounts of her work is out there, being read and being shared. It comes down to choice, and I choose to receive my messages from any and all avenues available, so long as they are found to be within the parameters of lovingkindness.
