This angel message focuses on healing and new beginnings. Out with the old that is negatively influencing you, holding you back and bringing you down-In with the new. It’s time for some fresh energy in your life. It is time to weed out the garden of your life, prepare the soil, plant new seeds, nurture them and patiently await the harvest.
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’m going deep with this message and I mean soul-level deep. While we might sometimes need doctors and therapists for healing, we often disregard the powerful healing abilities we hold within. We can heal ourselves on many levels, breaking out of old habits and patterns and emerging with fresh eyes and a zest for life.
We have got some powerful astrological influences supporting us in healing and soul growth. We have Venus retrograde-forcing us to review and reassess our values and our relationships-with ourselves, with others and with money. We just had a full moon bringing clarity and revealing imbalances in our inner and external worlds. We will be leaving the watery-emotional Pisces astrological influence (last sign in the zodiac) and entering the fiery-passionate Aries astrological influence (the first sign in the zodiac). We have the Spring Equinox (in the northern hemisphere) and a new moon in Aries. What do you need to weed out of your metaphorical garden of life and what seeds should you plant and nurture for this new season? The universe is supporting (and somewhat forcing us) to take review of our past, learn our lessons (or repeat them yet again), clean the slate and charge forward with the Aries “initiator spirit” into our future.
I apologize in advance for the soul healing rant I’m about to go on and believe me I’m just skimming the surface of what could be a novel. Keep an open mind and entertain this idea. Imagine that you sat down with God, your angels, your spirit guides and every person you have/will encounter in your life and created your soul plan prior to being born. Imagine you planned all the good times, the troubled times and the obstacles. Imagine that you asked that person in the first grade to bully you, you asked that first significant other to break your heart, etc. What if this life on Earth was just a lifelong education of lessons and blessings for soul growth? If you don’t process why these challenges happened; if you haven’t found the lesson/blessing in each challenge yet-they are like unhealed wounds. You might not be consciously aware of these unhealed wounds, but they lie in your subconscious and come out in your actions, decisions and relations with others. Learning the lesson/blessing in all of our challenges and troubles can provide healing, growth, wisdom and strength. Quoting Eckhart Tolle-”Whenever anything negative happens to you, there is a deep lesson concealed within it, although you may not see it at the time.”
Be compassionate with yourself as you take this life review. If you knew you planned every trouble/hurt/obstacle then go deeper and question why-what is the lesson/blessing? Pause and sit with your intuition, angels and guides-why would I ask for that horrible thing to happen? Why would I present myself with this obstacle? There is a lesson and a blessing in it-what could that possibly be? Do you see any patterns? Are there any lessons that keep resurfacing because you haven’t learned/grown from them yet? I know you want to finally close the chapter on some of these patterns and heal those wounds so ask yourself-what is the lesson/blessing in it? If we don’t heal those wounds, lessons will repeat over and over until we learn from them.
How have your wounds/insecurities impacted your life, your decisions and your actions? How have you hurt yourself with your unhealed wounds? How have you hurt others because of your unhealed wounds? Unacknowledged, unhealed wounds cause people to hurt themselves and hurt others (it is hurt people that hurt people).
These wounds often go way back to childhood (disappointments, abuse, neglect, abandonment, etc.) and repeatedly surface throughout your lifetime until they are healed and the lesson/blessing is acknowledged. Why would you choose these painful experiences for yourself? As an example, maybe you wanted to experience abandonment and neglect to overcome these situations and learn to value and love yourself (regardless of others wounds, opinions and personal agendas). Maybe you were presented with a lesson so that you can learn to trust your own intuition, to be your true authentic self, to speak your truth, to stop putting others before yourself, to learn to have faith in a higher power, to learn your value/worth, to learn what you value, etc.
It all comes back to love-for yourself, for others and for life. And no, it is not selfish to love yourself first-it’s actually beneficial to all of your relationships because you are not bringing any wounds into these relationships. You are operating out of pure love and not hurt. The greatest gift you can give others is to love yourself.
Think of these obstacles/lessons as mountains-will you take the long and painful journey over the mountain to learn the lesson/blessing (whichever way you take-it was/is necessary in overcoming this obstacle for soul growth) or will you take the fast route by going around the mountain, carving a hole in the middle of that mountain, etc. You get my drift, this is all metaphorical. Moving forward, the minute a challenge/obstacle/troubled time presents itself-ask yourself what is the lesson/blessing in this?
The “Love” card is a reminder that our souls are pure love. Love is a high vibration and healing energy. Anxiety and drama cannot exist in the aura of love. We are put on this earth to learn, accept and utilize this harmonic force and to see its effects upon our lives. Love builds, fortifies and strengthens even the most lost person. True love is the spiritual link between us and God. It will guide us through conflicts and will cleanse our hearts of unwanted facets of the ego and human personality. Where can you pour a little more love, a little more healing?
So it is time to weed out the garden of your life and prepare for the new beginnings you want. What negative thoughts and limiting beliefs are creating self-fulfilling prophecies in your life? Everyone I love leaves me? Betrays me? No one understands me? I always give more than I receive in relationships? I can’t trust anybody? I am unhealthy? I always get sick? I am unlucky? Review those beliefs and figure out what wound they are coming from. Break the cycle by acknowledging the root of that limiting belief and then change the way you think. Once a lesson is learned, growth happens and change is possible. And now you have the wisdom and strength from that experience/lesson. It’s time to believe in healing, believe in goodness, believe in miracles.
Continue to assess what you need to weed out. What relationships/situations are not supporting your growth, have a negative impact on your life and are draining you of your energy? Is it time to cut out some relationships/situations? What have you learned from these unhealthy or negative relationships/situations? Be grateful for the lessons learned and release them with love.
What are you going to plant and nurture for your future? With the weeding you will do (or have already done), you are creating space for your future growth. How and what will you fill it with? The Queen of Gabriel (Wands) and Three of Gabriel (Wands) are cards of fiery, inspiring, creative passion. You could be channeling this Queen of Wands energy or this is someone that you will partner up with. She is charming, confident, assertive, creative and passionate. She is relentlessly determined in what she pursues. She is bound for success. Embodying or teaming up with this energy is guaranteed to bring you the results you are seeking. There is a passion for purpose here. Hearing the calling; knowing your purpose. This could be your career or more of a general life purpose. This purpose could be long-term, short-term or one-time only. We have many purposes in our lifetime. Long-term planning is a good idea-so what is your next adventure? Review your options and keep your enthusiasm high. The work you’ve already done (or will be doing) will yield fantastic results that meet or exceed your expectations-so there is no need to worry. If it takes a little while to get a return on your investment, just have patience as it will be worth the wait. New beginnings are coming. Take up your new destination with joy and confidence.
The “Be Gentle with Yourself” card serves as a reminder that you are doing the best you can. Stop any negative self-talk and be good to yourself. It’s important to practice good self-care. Avoid harsh chemicals, negative people and negative situations. Make sure you are eating a healthy balanced diet, getting enough sleep and incorporating light exercise into your routine.
The “Lean on God and the Angels for Support” card suggests that if there is a situation that is burdening you-don’t be afraid to ask for help. This could be asking a person you trust for help or it could simply mean to pray to God and your Angels for the support and guidance you need to resolve this worry and burden. Their guidance will come through your intuition, thoughts or random advice you stumble upon in conversation with another or an article you read. The Divine works in amazing ways leading you to what you seek.
The “Focus on Divine and Perfect Health” card reminds you that the key to good health is to focus your energy on your well-being instead of on sickness and injury. Stay centered on your desires of perfect health and healing, rather than on your fears. This card can also signal that you could see an improvement in your health. Keep the faith, miracles happen every day.
“Archangel Michael, please guide me in treating myself with gentle, nurturing love in everything I think, speak and do. Help me know that I deserve this compassion. I release any feelings of guilt to you so that I may experience lasting inner peace.”
“Dear God and Angels, I give you [briefly summarize situation] now and completely. I step out of the way and allow Divine miracles to shine through everyone and everything involved.”
“God and Archangel Michael, thank you for continuously reminding me to focus upon perfect health and for guiding my actions so that they support my well-being.”
Singles looking for love: Two romance angels cards flew out for you. "Make the Effort" and "Getting to Know Each Other." If you want a relationship, you have to make the effort-reach out to that person you’ve been crushing on, increase your social activities, ask your friends if they have anyone they can set you up with, go on a dating website, etc. The "Getting to Know Each Other" card implies that you will be meeting someone and it is important to be your true self and have genuine conversations about what is important to you, what you like and who you are. The "New Vitality" card hints at a passionate beginning-so that is exciting! You will feel an increase in energy and passion in your love life or for your life-whether you find someone or not. Your passions are ignited and you will be shining bright. "Surrender to Trust" refers to trusting yourself and your intuition. Don’t let others opinions and judgments sway you in your love life and who you want to date. So get out there, there is a good chance you will meet that special someone and make sure you are your true, authentic self-you don’t want them falling for some false persona you are presenting.
Couples: Now is the time to put a little TLC into your love life. Maybe there are some stale, stagnant energies going on. Maybe (like mentioned in the above general reading) you have found that some old wounds are keeping you in a pattern that is harming your relationship. How can you invest in your relationship with your partner? "Surrender Fear" suggests that you might have some fears that are playing out in your relationship. Address those fears either by yourself or with your partner and focus on solutions. Celebrate every baby step forward. The “Joy & Stability” card is a reminder that you have a lot to be grateful for. You are being blessed with a joyful, uplifting and high vibrational energy that can clear away your fears and allow you to live in the moment. Welcome this warm, sunny energy into your life and into your relationship. This is a time of sharing and heartfelt communication. Lovingly open your heart and mind with your partner. Share your thoughts and be a good listener. Feel the balance of energy as you communicate and you will find increased stability and warmth in your relationship.

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 (email@example.com) 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.
