This week’s angel message focuses on change (again or maybe it hasn’t happened yet?), new beginnings, triumphant success, self-confidence and relationships with others. Are you ready for deeper connection and emotional intimacy in your relationships with others? The masks are coming off-and I don’t mean Halloween masks! As usual, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your current situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
Are you tired of fearing the worst? Have you been postponing or resisting the changes you know you need to make? Perhaps you needed more clarity-well now you have it or it should be coming this week. The fog of confusion and uncertainty has been lifted or will be lifting-bringing greater clarity this week. Time to take charge, take positive action and make it happen! By following your heart, while utilizing your strength, willpower, determination and focus-triumphant success is granted by the Universe. This change will bring new beginnings. It is time to release what is no longer serving your highest good. The “new” can’t come if there is no room for it. Release those negative thought patterns, negative emotions and limiting behavior patterns. Release grudges and resentments regarding you and your relationships.
Is there something you’ve been afraid to say or share with someone, but it is something you know to be true in your heart? Perhaps you are holding onto a learned belief or ideal that doesn’t work for you or align with your core values and morals? If it is causing you to “wear a mask” and not be true to yourself and others, then it might be time to release that imposed belief. Is it better to have somebody love and accept the person you portray or the real you? Does somebody disagree with your life choices or beliefs? Are you feeling tested and challenged by someone close to you? Within you, you have the strength and courage to stand your ground, but your confidence may be lacking. Believe in yourself, be brave-stay true to your heart and core values. Your self-assurance attracts healthy people to your side. It also triggers respect in others.
I remember the phrase, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Now I know the intention was to not say anything in anger, but it sends a mixed message making us concerned about voicing our truths out of fear that it might offend or hurt others. Look at the reason why you feel the need to express yourself. If your intention is to express your beliefs and values to be true to yourself-not an intention to hurt or harm-then please speak your truth. Say what you need to say even if others may disagree or not understand.
Are you not seeing eye-to-eye with your family? Are you harboring resentment with a family member/members? Are you feeling like an outsider in your family-like they don’t understand you? We are born into our families for many reasons and the main reason is to learn to love unconditionally. To accept and appreciate people for who they are. Your family is your greatest teacher. Every family member will hold at least one trait that you don’t like and you have at least one trait that each of your family members doesn’t like. This sets the perfect environment for us to learn to love unconditionally. This is a time to practice forgiveness, acceptance and tolerance. It does not mean you have to change who you are to accommodate others, rather you need to accept who you are and who they are without have to change for anyone. Communicate your needs and intentions with them honestly and lovingly. Set boundaries and reduce the amount of time you spend with them if needed; you can’t allow yourself to carry any resentment or negative feelings about them anymore-it is poison-it is toxic to all who are involved.
I don’t mean to offend anyone or challenge your beliefs-I'm just reading the cards-again take away only what resonates with you and your beliefs. With that being said, many religions (including early Christianity) believe in past lives and reincarnation. We are often born into this world with karma attached to past lives and our ancestral lineage. Our challenge is to overcome the karmic life lessons we are presented in this life. We are meant to overcome challenges that are presented to us in life. Learning from them while maintaining unconditional love for all that life offers us. There appears to be a lack in self-confidence. The lack of confidence in standing up for yourself and your beliefs could stem from a past life or the lives of your ancestors. Perhaps you were persecuted in a past life for your beliefs and values and now have a hard time “going against the grain” in sharing your beliefs/values with others. Perhaps this is a trait that you have inherited from your ancestors and the persecution they received. Let’s breathe a sigh of relief and gratitude that we don’t live in Medieval times where people were beheaded or hanged for their beliefs. Stand firm in your beliefs despite the opposition. You have your ancestors support and will get “high-fives” from Heaven when you speak your truth from the heart.
You can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends and associates. The Universe is sending some beneficial alliances your way but you have to make the effort. It is time to get out there and meet people who share your same core values and ideals. You have some kindred spirits in your midst or at least readily available for you to join. The time is right to make connections with like-minded individuals-whether personal or professional. This group of individuals will allow you to be yourself, share your thoughts/ideas/beliefs, get creative and receive valuable feedback.
Are you ready for spiritual expansion and a deeper connection with your higher self? It appears there is a spiritual mentor/mentors in your life (or they will appear shortly.) You might need to reach out to this person. This is someone significant in your journey that can offer their wisdom, guidance and inspiration. Someone who will remind you that you are so much more than a physical being-you are also a spiritual being with unlimited potential. This mentor or group can encourage you to be all that you can be-living your life to your highest ideals.
This is a kind of random card thrown into the mix, but fun! Are you planning a trip? If not, the angels are encouraging you to take a much-needed vacation. This trip is blessed by St. Christopher and the angels-they will be by your side on your travels. You can also pray to them-to ensure that all the details are taken care of-transportation, luggage, meals and accommodations-so the way is clear for an enjoyable trip.
Cheers to change, loving relationships and most importantly...YOU!
-I open my life to the wonderful people around me. I am making strong and beneficial connections in both my personal and professional life.
-My sacral chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state. I am creative and self-nurturing. I am comfortable with the gentle waves of intimacy coming my way.
-Archangel Michael, please lend me your courage and fortitude. Help me realize that I am one with all that is Divine: wisdom, strength, love, creativity, abundance and health. Allow me to feel confident and peaceful about myself in all ways.
Prayer/Action Steps for Past Life Healing:
Archangel Raziel-whose name means the “secrets of God”-is the angel who helps you understand, assimilate and heal your past-life memories. Go to a quiet place and say (aloud or silently):
“Archangel Raziel, I call upon you now. Please help me to understand [describe your current question or situation] by guiding and healing me through my past experiences and relationships. I ask that you help me balance all karma with everyone involved in this situation, in all directions of time. Please help me uncover, heal and release any old buried pain-now and forever. Thank you.”
Your body may shudder as you say this, indicating that you’re successfully releasing old, pent-up pain. If you have memory or snippets of past lifetimes, please write them down for further exploration with a past-life regression therapist or by listening to a guided-meditation CD.
