"Cross Roads", Guiding Light Oracle Cards, by Kelly T. Smith
Card text: A new business adventure, project, or career is currently in the works for you.
Always remember to never settle for something simply because it is the only option you "currently" have. There are hidden elements to this current situation that you may not be aware of. You always have other options. To experience these additional options, you must first make a choice about your current situation. You have to ask yourself: "Is this right for me, or am I merely settling? Is there something else I would rather be doing than what I am doing now? Is that possible?" Asking the right questions will assist you in making the right decisions.
This card comes to you today because you placed self-imposed limitations on yourself in regards to what you could be doing to earn a living. If all you are doing is focusing on earning a living, then by universal law, that is all you can experience. But, if you shift your awareness into LIVING your joy and allowing abundance to be a result of that joy, you invite in new energy that creates new opportunities. This card comes to you today to help you become aware that you have choices. The good news is, the minute you choose something new, you will begin to see your options more clearly. Choose carefully, and make a decision based on what is best for you. You must refuse to settle for anything less than what you deserve.
"Life Purpose", Daily Guidance from your Angels, by Doreen Virtue
Card text: The purpose of your life is to serve in a way that brings great joy to yourself and others. Don't worry about finding your purpose. Instead, focus upon serving a purpose, and then your purpose will serve you.
This card comes as a reminder that you needn't struggle to find your life purpose. Don't worry about how to make good money in a meaningful career. Don't concern yourself with quitting or starting jobs or professions. Instead, follow the path of your natural desires, talents, and passions with the full intention of bringing joy to yourself and others. Your life purpose doesn't need to be defined or pinpointed. It's a process, not a category.
Additional meanings for this card:
- Give all worries about money or career to God and the angels
- You're on the right path toward your life's purpose
- Focus on one step at a time with respect to your life's purpose, and release fears about the future to the angels
- What you're doing right now is part of your life's purpose.
This week's reading is about soul fulfillment, where you are currently looking at doing something more fulfilling at a deep level--whether it be career related, looking at volunteering opportunities, changing your relationship or personal space, etc.--all with the intent to feed your soul. As you are looking to make/setting into motion these changes, limiting beliefs about what is possible, what you are deserving of, and/or what you are capable of might be flooding your consciousness out of self-preservation.
I drew the 2nd card for additional insight on how to handle these blocks...and got the Life Purpose card..."Follow the path of your natural desires, talents, and passions with the full intention of bringing joy to yourself and others"...a powerful reinforcement of the 1st card about "living your joy". Re-grounding your intent to honor your soul's longings, will help to get your mind off any negative self-talk or worries about how these changes will happen, if it will all work out, etc., so you can return from your head space to your heart space...and allow miracles in!
For some, the 2nd card serves as a validation that you are on the right track for the life changes you have been contemplating/already working towards...woohoo! :)
What are some of your soul longings? What is one action (big or small, it all counts!) you can you take towards honoring one of them? Commit to doing that one action this week. And only that one. That one committed step, is truly enough for now...
To give you an example:
A current soul longing of mine is to transform my physical body into a dancer physique, which represents to me optimal health, strength, flexibility, agility, groundedness, and honoring my body. This week, I commit to doing one exercise challenge that I found on Pinterest. The sequence I pick will be the one that my body feels most excited to do, on the day my body feels eager to do it.
Would love to hear about your soul longings and your one commitment for this week in the comments below!
