This week’s angel message is about mothers, children, leading/teaching/learning, divine timing, opportunities and letting go of worries. I just want to say that I am a spiritual person and I find truth in all religions. I never mean to offend or ostracise anyone-I only want to support you and spread love. I honor and respect your faith, religion and/or spirituality. I believe that all faith is sacred and beautiful. In all my readings, I encourage you to take away what resonates with you and to pray to whomever your higher power.
As usual, this is a “general reading” and 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 have to say that it is beautiful to see “Mother Mary” come up in this week’s reading as many will be celebrating the birth of Jesus this week. When I was meditating on this reading, I received flashes of the devastating pictures circling about what is happening to the children and people of Aleppo, Syria. If you ever have concerns about children, Mother Mary and Jesus are great divine beings to pray to. I asked them what I could do to help the children in Aleppo and was guided to share a prayer and to do so immediately. Therefore I posted the prayer to Facebook, but am also including it at the end of this reading. I'm asking for your help in coming together in prayer. If there is anything we can do – we can pray. The power of group prayer amplifies the effect of the prayer. Please pray to whomever your higher power.
With the holidays here, it is a time when you will experience heightened sensitivity and emotions. Honor your feelings and your heightened sensitivity. I feel many are grieving the loss of loved ones. You may feel inclined to honor your loved one(s) by dedicating a sacred practice or prayer for them or by setting a place at the table for them. Allow yourself to grieve, cry and let it out. You have every right to feel these deep emotions. Take care of yourself and let others take care of you. Know that you are deserving of love and support, so allow yourself to receive this from others. Nurture yourself by avoiding harsh/negative situations and people. Eat healthy, non-processed foods. Avoid chemicals and drink lots of fresh water. Acknowledge that you may need to spend some extra time alone. Spend some time in nature if you can. Pray to whomever your higher power and your guardian angels for support and comfort.
With the “Mother” card as well as 3 cards that have children in them-I am getting a few messages. Like I mentioned, I received an overwhelming message to take care of “our” children-all the children in the world. I also received a message that if you have a Mother in Heaven-she is with you and watching over you (and your children if you have them.) Another message I received is that if you have a child in Heaven-they are with you and watching over you. I also see that if you have been trying to conceive a child, divine timing is involved and you are being blessed with this divine timing now or very soon. If you are a mother, know that your children look up to you as their leader, teacher and role model. There is also a message to express your gratitude and appreciation for your own mother. If you have had difficult times with your mother in the past, know that she did the very best she could and she loves you dearly.
The Wheel (also known as the Wheel of Fortune in traditional tarot decks) implies divine timing and that the wheel is turning in your favor. Your destiny is calling you. You can expect new opportunities to arise for you-in any area of your life. The wheel asks you to be optimistic, flexible and adaptable to the changes and opportunities presenting to you. Synchronistic events are likely at this time-such as being in the right place at the right time. Situations you might have started to feel hopeless about could take a turn for the better. There could be possible rewards and recognition for your accomplishments. Good news could find you and miracles are possible.
The Knight of Ariel (also known as the Knight of Pentacles in traditional tarot decks) could be referring to a person entering your life, a person already in your life, yourself or advice on how to move forward with your plans. Since this message is for many people-I believe it has many meanings and one of them should apply to you specifically. I will refer to the Knight as “he” but could also be female-it is moreso the energy this card carries. This Knight is the slowest moving Knight in the deck. He is the “slow and steady” Knight that always makes it to his destination. His motto would most likely be-”only fools rush in and I am no fool.” He knows that change doesn’t happen overnight and there is no need to rush or seek instant gratification. He is content with the journey while also focusing on the outcome he seeks. He has a common-sense approach and is practical, logical and methodical. He takes one well-planned step at a time. His slow pace ensures that he will not get burnt out. He is trustworthy, dependable, understanding and kind. The advice here would be to take one step at a time, be proud of each step and soon you will see the fruits of your labor.
We have the “You’re a Leader” and “Classes” cards. This can be interpreted both formally and informally. Perhaps you are enrolled in school or are ready to take some classes. You might also be a teacher or are considering teaching. Consider this card your "green light" to go ahead with the education or teaching you are considering. Informally, consider that we are all students and teachers in relation with others. Many quotes come to mind-”be the change you wish to see,” “lead by example” and “when the student is ready-the teacher will appear” are a few that stand out to me. Questions to consider-How am I teaching others? What am I learning from others? How can I be a role model? What am I teaching my children? What are my children teaching me? When it comes to changes you are desiring-can you be the change and lead by example? If you want better communication with your partner or others-can your communication be more honest and compassionate? If you want others to respect you more-can you show them by respecting and loving yourself? Live a life that makes you proud of yourself. Live in a way where others admire your integrity and strength of character.
There are also some things that are out of our control and for that we need to believe that “God is in Charge.” Do what you feel you can and then surrender to the flow. Have faith that all is happening in divine timing and trust that everything will work out. Release any tension and the need to control. Archangel Michael assures you that your prayers have been heard and are being answered. There is a natural course this situation is taking and you are being asked to give your worries to God and the angels. You are being encouraged to enjoy your life as God is taking care of any apparent problems and a miraculous solution is already in the works. Be grateful for your blessings and those yet to come.
It is also important to be open to receiving the blessings that are coming your way. Know that you deserve peace, happiness, love and support. Don’t block yourself from “receiving” with feelings of guilt or unworthiness. Know that you are worthy and that any perceived mistakes you think you have made have been forgiven. If you believe that someone in your life is not forgiving you-know that they are really only not forgiving themselves. The only thing left to do is to forgive yourself and be open to receiving your blessings.
I wish you all a week of peace and happiness. Happy holidays to all celebrating!
Prayer for Aleppo:
Let us pray that the violence will cease and peace will be restored in Aleppo and throughout Syria. That all those suffering find comfort and healing. That the needs of the millions of Syrians who have been displaced will be adequately met. And that world leaders engaged in peace talks prioritize the needs of the Syrian people and not their own personal agenda. Amen.
Prayer from “God is in Charge”:
“Dear God, please help me to let go of [situation], giving it in faith and trust to your Divine wisdom and infinite love in order to resolve and heal everything and everyone involved.”
