This week’s angel message focuses on change, learning/growing, progress and healing. I have to be honest, I pulled two cards that made me say “Really Angels-is this how we are starting the New Year? Where’s the optimism and love?” I received the message that life can be challenging, but it is through those challenges that we find our strength. We are here for personal and spiritual growth. If we didn’t know pain and struggle-we wouldn’t know joy and peace. So here we go...and yes there is reason to stay optimistic!
As usual, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your specific situation. It’s fair to say that with an increase in readers (thank you, I am humbled and grateful)-comes an increase in messages-so there may only be bits and pieces of the reading that resonate with you, if any. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
With the “Emotional Loss” it appears that some are grieving the loss of someone or something of significant value. If you are grieving the death of a loved one-I am so very sorry for your loss. I cannot tell you that your grief will ever subside. I can only send you my love and support. I pray that you find the comfort and peace you need. I pray that light shines through the darkness you are feeling and that the light grows and nurtures you daily. I hope that you are able to find the nurturing support you need from others-family, friends, a support group. If you are struggling with grief and need to talk-I can listen very well. I offer you a listening ear-message me and we will arrange that talk. Seriously-my email is email@example.com. I hope this will offer a little comfort-with the “Guarded and Protected” card from Archangel Michael-one of the interpretations is that “your loved ones are safe with the angels in Heaven.”
A message to all-if you know of anyone that is grieving in any way-reach out to them. Offer love and support. Don't worry about you and if you have the strength and knowledge to support them-you have love in your heart and that is all that you need. Reach out!
Others may be grieving the loss of a relationship-friend or romantic, a job, or any other painful loss resulting in grief, devastation and sadness. Honor your feelings, take as long as you need to grieve and process these emotions. Reach out for support-friends, family, support groups, online groups, etc. Please know that you will get through this and you will be stronger and wiser because of it. I am not saying to get over it or let it go-but instead to honor your feelings, give yourself time and love and know that something good will come out of this. As one door closes-another door opens. From my personal experience I can say that believing there was a blessing through the absolute heartbreak I was going through was one of the only things that kept me going. And yes, I found that blessing-many blessings. You will too-in time.
With the “Conflict and Defeat” card, I see there is an unhealthy, imbalanced or unjust situation/circumstance/relationship you need to address. I was going to point out that this could be just internal, but I received the message that this is indeed external-of course whatever is external is also internal. I also get the message to “choose your battles wisely.” Knowing when you need to take a stand and when you should surrender or walk away is crucial. I also get the message that “you will know what to do.” You might be overly emotional about the situation at the moment and might require time to calm yourself and emotionally detach from the situation to take an objective look before proceeding. Acknowledge your feelings. Be sensitive to your feelings, as well as the feelings of those involved. How you handle this situation is critical to your well-being. Don’t assign blame, become deceitful or set out to get revenge-this results in negative energy becoming a part of you (think karma). Be honest, gentle and loving in your approach. It is possible to be assertive and loving at the same time. Make sure to ask yourself-is this a time to take a stand or a time to surrender and/or walk away? Is this a time to be assertive and communicate your feelings and expectations? Or is this a time when you accept the situation for what it is?
With the “Moon Goddess” card I see this as not only learning about how the lunar cycles affect you, but also how the universal energies and planets affect you. With Mercury in Retrograde from December 19-January 8, there is a universal energy of reminiscing, looking at the past, reconnecting with people of the past, grieving the people that are no longer in our lives, etc. This can also be a time when electronics and technology don’t really work the way we want them to. With the full moon approaching on January 12, take notice of how this affects you. When the moon is full-it is directly opposite the sun. This is a time when you will find that imbalances (both internal and external) are highlighted for you to examine. Your intuition and instinct tend to be stronger around the full moon. Another interesting note about how astrology influences us and these readings-the full moon on January 12 will be in Cancer and will be positioned between “The Twins.” Yes, the moon will be between Castor and Pollux-the constellation twins for the zodiac sign of Gemini. We are talking conflict, war and brothers fighting over the same woman...it should be an interesting full moon. Again, know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Assert yourself or surrender? Share your feelings and try to compromise? You have free will and the choice is yours. You will know what to do and if you don’t, ask your guardian angel or Archangel Uriel to give you signs, insight and guidance.
It is so important for you to acknowledge the progress you have made-yes you have! It is not about perfection, it is about progress. Can you take a moment to look at how far you have come, how much you have grown and all that you have learned? 2016 was a hell of a year! You are making progress and it is important to take a moment to acknowledge your achievements. Give yourself a pat on the back. Don’t put your energy into any lapses you have made-guilt and regret never helped anyone. Instead put your energy into how much you have grown and what you have achieved. Keep going and make sure to acknowledge your hard work and successes along the way.
With “Energy Healing” I am getting the message that many of you have a life purpose which involves energy healing (Reiki, Healing Touch, Qi Gong, Pranic Healing, etc.). This card could indicate that it is time to study one of these energy healing modalities-read a book, enroll in a course, etc. It also means that your intentions, thoughts and prayers have healing abilities-pray to send love to any situation or person who needs it. This card could also indicate that a situation that you are concerned about is “healing” so continue to have faith in a positive outcome.
With “Guarded and Protected” Archangel Michael is assuring you that you and your loved ones are protected through your current situation and any major life changes you are experiencing. You are encouraged to be true to yourself and others-honoring your feelings. Know that you, your home and your children are protected. This card also means that your loved ones in Heaven are being watched over by angels. You can always ask Archangel Michael for assistance if you haven’t done so already. He is one of the most powerful Archangels and sends me many messages of reassurance that he’s “got my back.”
Sending you love and healing through life’s challenges and changes. Know that you are on the right path and keep up the good work. And again, if you need support-I can provide a listening ear. Contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer for “Guarded and Protected”:
“Archangel Michael, thank you for protecting my loved ones and me, ensuring that we are safe and that all of our needs are met. I now accept your help gratefully and gracefully, knowing that it is right for me and all others to accept heavenly assistance.”
