The angel message for the first half of March focuses on breaking patterns and finding a balance with giving and receiving in your relationships. This appears to be a more challenging time but one that will reap rewards if addressed. As usual this is a “general” reading that might not apply to you and your specific situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
I would like to try out a new idea-I plan to continue doing the biweekly general angel messages but would like to add random "advice from the angels" similar to "Dear Abbie's" advice column for more specific situations/concerns. I would post the situation/question/concern (removing any identifying information) and the advice I receive through my intuition and the cards from my guides and angels. It would be randomly posted depending on the volume of requests I receive. Again, it would be depersonalized so you remain anonymous and also so that others going through similar situations can get advice. Do you have a situation that you'd like some advice on? Please either email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Facebook message me with your situation/concern. I will respond back to let you know when the advice has been posted to my blog. Thanks! Now onto the reading.
It appears that you might be experiencing a “never-ending story” where you find yourself repeating a pattern or behavior. This might be big or small. Often we find situations will resurface again and again until the lesson is learned, integrated and there is self growth. Several things come to mind such as staying in a job or a relationship that is not fulfilling-without addressing the issue, bouncing from job or relationship to the next thinking that the grass is always greener on the other side, fighting about the same issue again and again with your partner without ever resolving it, starting a healthy lifestyle change and then quitting without completing your goal, etc. It is time to break this cycle/pattern as it is draining, wears away at your self esteem and is not healthy for you. It’s time to learn why this situation/behavior pattern keeps presenting itself so you can finally face it, learn from it and release it. Breaking patterns of behavior first requires recognition/awareness of the pattern. Once you recognize where you are spinning your wheels, determine the underlying self-limiting belief or mindset that has put you there. Take responsibility for how you got yourself here, acknowledging that you have the power to change it. Look for the lesson/blessing in this pattern and then try a different approach, which will include a different mindset to finally wrap this lesson up.
If you are unsure how to break this pattern/cycle, you are being guided to write/journal about your thoughts and feelings. Ask yourself-Why is this happening? What am I supposed to learn in this? Write about the pattern, the underlying feelings and beliefs that are limiting you. Where did these limiting beliefs come from? Past experiences? Other people’s opinions? Write down what is working and what isn’t working to help paint a picture of what you want. Writing will help you gain insight into the nature of what you genuinely desire. This clarity will illuminate the steps you need to take next. Ask your angels and guides for guidance and then allow miraculous solutions to appear through your intuition, thoughts and dreams.
Start brainstorming your options and choices. You might be hesitant to make a choice because you want to be certain of the results of your choice. Change requires that you take a risk and make a choice that may lead you into the unknown on a new path. In addition to writing, you can try meditating on your options to find which choice most resonates with you-in both the process and the goal. There is also a message to “be brave." There is a blessing in this situation and by focusing on finding that benefit you are sure to discover it. It’s an opportunity for you to grow stronger, more experienced and develop higher self esteem. Don’t run from conflict-face it with grace and love. Your role is to stay positive, speak your truth and be brave. Pray and ask for heavenly help and it is assured.
This never-ending story could be about a chronic imbalance between giving and receiving in your relationships with others-personal or professional. If you have been giving more than receiving, you might be feeling like others are taking advantage of your kindness or not appreciating all that you give. If you have been receiving more than giving, you might be experiencing depression, shame and/or guilt. It is important that this topic be addressed with compassion and love, as both sides are probably feeling negative emotions about their part. Make sure to point out the parts of the relationship you are grateful for, as well as addressing the parts that require some adjusting. You can ask for what you need without blaming the other person for not giving you what you need. Perhaps, you have never told them what you need or have waited until tensions are high and angrily bursted out your feelings which wasn’t taken seriously in the heat of the moment. Express your needs and ask for help. Aim to balance giving and receiving daily. Give your time, energy, support and love without expecting anything in return. Be a gracious receiver and say “thank you” without embarrassment or guilt.
With the “Gratitude” card which I think was touched on in the last reading-be thankful for who and what is in your life instead of complaining about what you don’t have. If you focus on gratitude, you will start to attract prosperity and abundance. Appreciate all the abundance and goodness around you in order to manifest your desires. The more joy you notice and appreciate the easier it becomes to experience more happiness, abundance, prosperity and love. Make sure to include YOU in the people and things you are grateful for.
-I now receive good graciously into my life.
-I release fear and move forward with courage and trust. I have the power to direct my own destiny-now and always.
“Archangel Michael, thank you for helping me tap into my God-given creativity and wisdom so I clearly express myself and glean insight, blessing and healing.”
Singles looking for Love: It appears that someone from your past will be returning-this may or may not be a past romantic partner. There is a chance that this relationship will be romantic this time around. There is also a chance that forgiveness for past regrets/hurtful actions needs to happen in order to clear your energy and karma for future relationships. This could also be a reconciliation on an individual level-forgiving yourself and others that you harbor resentment towards. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to communicate with them. It’s time to release the past and any negative energy associated with it so you can move into your future with a clean, fresh slate. With the “Find Balance” card-it appears that you might be busy managing demands and obligations at this time. It is important to find a balance in still taking care of your needs. “Find Balance” also brings a message that if you do start a new relationship-make sure to take time for yourself and not “lose yourself” in the fun and excitement of this new relationship. Easier said than done, right?
Couples: It appears that finances and career (yours or your significant other’s) is impacting your relationship right now and creating an imbalance. There might be a lot of pressure coming from either of your jobs right now. There may be arguments about time spent working versus time spent with each other/at home. There might also be arguments over finances. There is a word of caution with the “Win or Lose” card which is that if you find yourself in a disagreement try to find the middle ground-where compromise is found and both parties flex a bit to come to a win-win solution. Voice your feelings without pointing fingers or playing the victim. Try to avoid arguments of who is right and who is wrong, focus on the love between the two of you and seek a resolution.
