Daily Oracle Card

Hi Friends,

Well, it feels like the end of the week, doesn't it? ;) There has been a huge surge of forward momentum and work toward intentionally manifesting our goals since the beginning of the year, and this week I have felt an intense energy in the air - it's the moment just before the explosion of creation. To use the life cycle of a plant as an example, this time we are in right now is akin to the moment immediately before when the seedling unfurls. The coil that is about to burst open, allowing the leaves to unfurl and to begin to grow toward the sun, is jam-packed with energy and spring loaded. It's intense. You can feel it. This is where we are. And there isn't much to be done, but wait.

The intensity of energy around us right now can have a real impact on our bodies, minds, and spirits. We may feel more tired than usual, run down and exhausted even, we may feel sad or other emotions more strongly than normal, and we may just want to curl up in bed for a few days. This is all normal, and valid, and a sign that your whole being needs a little coddling, and warm tender care. You've been working hard, very hard, and the energy about right now is intense, so give yourself a break and honor that what you are experiencing is normal.

Just as we are affected by energies, children (and all beings) are, as well. We can help the children in our lives, by offering them a little grace, a warm bath, and a cozy veg session of their own. As always, clearing, sealing, and protecting your personal energy, that of your family (don't forget pets and plants!), and home is always a great idea and helpful to chill out the vibes.

Today's Daily Oracle Card was drawn from Doreen Virtue's, 'Archangel Oracle Cards.'

Nurture
Archangel Gabriel: "As you nurture a child, you nurture your own inner child. Both activities are important for you right now."
Additional Message: "One reason why it's important for you to help children is because you're also helping your own inner child int he process. You're teaching what you need to learn, so pay particular attention to the messages you deliver to children and their parents. Know that those messages are for you as well. Take time to play, laugh, and to be silly and carefree. Nurutre your inner child with as much love and attention as possible."
