Card: Queen of Water – from the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.
Message from Erin: Sometimes when I’m doing the weekly readings, the Faeries pick a card that I know is meant as a wink or nudge to me to then a opportunity for me to share a story with you all, or to give you my personal insight.
The Queen of Water from this deck has always really spoken to me. I love the imagery of this beautiful angel with the orcas and the stars above. For about twenty years now I’ve had dreams about whales. They are very intense and emotional dreams that have stuck with me for all this time. We have so much to learn from these beautiful beings. These dreams have always shown me that there is an intuitive bond between myself and others. They remind me that all living beings are connected to one another and that we all need each other to survive. More accurately, humans need to stop being so harmful to life.
I recognize myself in this card, as this tender hearted, empathetic, patient and loving angel. I probably don’t come across that way at all , haha, and that’s probably a result of a life full of adventures and heartbreak (the human journey!). My deepest self, minus the ego, is like this being. And I imagine that we all have this aspect to ourselves. We all have that kind and nurturing spirit within. I think this card is here to remind us that it’s okay to be tender hearted, and that it’s okay to love, even when it sometimes hurts.
Card: Freedom – from the Healing with the Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“The angels guide you to freely express your true thoughts and feelings with love.”
Message from the Faeries: Last week we spoke about the importance of being balanced in all aspects of your life. Finding balance will help you to cope with the significant changes that will be happening in your life. This week we want to talk to you about Freedom.
Freedom is a very interesting topic for us. We believe that everyone is free and has the ability to choose to do however they wish. However, your reality is not the same as ours. We have observed that you do not have the free will that we believe that you have. You have many limitations in your life. Limitations that make you unable to be truly free.
We don’t want to go too in depth on the topic of Freedom at the moment, but we what we would like to offer to you is one particular observation: you censor and stifle yourself a lot all time. You hold yourself back, which is a way of denying yourself Freedom, when you don’t express your feelings and emotions, which leads to your own suffering.
There are many reasons that you hold yourself back: you don’t want to hurt other people; you don’t feel safe expressing emotions; you worry about what other people might say or think. These are all valid fears, but we want to encourage you to be a bit more brave. Try expressing yourself a little more. The secret is to move past fear and come from a place of love. The fear is what is the real block. Love is the only way to get to that place to feel safe to express yourself, because when you are in a place of love you are then free to be open and true.
