"Surrender & Release", Healing with the Angels, by Doreen Virtue
Card text: Let go, and allow God and the angels to help you. Everything that you release will either be replaced by something better or will be returned to you healed.
When you hold on tightly to a part of your life that's not working, it has no room to heal. Whether you're unhappy with your love life, finances, career, home or health, this card asks you to let go. If you hang on to these aspects of your life because of hears such as "What if I can't find someone or something better?" then the situation will only worsen.
However, if you're willing to open your hands and allow the situation to be freed, one of two situations will occur: Either it will be washed away from you and replaced by a better situation, or the situation will heal in a miraculous way.
By drawing this card, the angels ask you to try not to control the outcome of your troubling situation. Let go and let God help you!

"Divine Magic", Magical Mermaids and Dolphins, by Doreen Virtue
Card text: Extra magical energy surrounds your situation right now. Expect miracles!
This card signifies that the next oracle card you pull out of the deck is surrounded by Divine magical energy. The Divine Magic card urges you to pay very special attention to this card, and do your best to follow its message.
The Divine Magic card indicates that a spiritual gateway has opened for you. At such times, your ability to manifest is heightened. Use this time to focus upon your desires. If you're unsure what you truly want, ask for Divine guidance through prayer, meditation, or ritual.
With the presence of the "Divine Magic" card, I decided to pull another card--and the following three fell out. I believe the fairies wanted to make sure that everyone was covered here more specifically...so you may relate to one (or more) of the below cards.
** Which one stands out the most to you? That is the Divine Magic card for you at this time...**
1.) "Practice, Practice, Practice": With daily practice, you can polish your skills and talents and increase your confidence. The fairies love to play musical instruments; and they know that consistent practice increases their enjoyment, confidence, and competency. In the same vein, you drew this card because you've asked how to accomplish something. The answer is for you to invest time practicing and working on your goal daily. Even a few minutes will add up to big progress--for example, writing one page a day will lead to a complete book by the end of the year. Push yourself to practice, beginning today!
Additional meanings for this card: Take up a new hobby or skill - Join a class to learn something new - Open a private practice conducting healings or other one-on-one work - Take private lessons to polish our skills - It's time to showcase your talents publicly - Take active steps toward your goal in order to realize your dreams
2.) "Flower Power": Spend time with flowers and flower essences to increase your personal healing power. This card signifies that you'll benefit from the balancing and healing properties of flowers. Spend time in a garden or even at a florist's shop, and surround your home with fresh flowers. As you breathe in the fragrances, fell their magical healing abilities bathing every cell of your body. The fairies also suggest that you buy a bottle or tow of pure flower essences, which are available at most health-food stores. Use rose oil to open your heart to love, for instance, or sprinkle lavender oil on your pillows and sheets to calm your nerves.
Additional meanings for this card: use flower essences in your healing work with others - Study aromatherapy - Make sachets or dried lavender eye pillows - Plant a flower garden - Send a loved one some flowers
3.) "Get Some Exercise": As your body becomes stronger, you begin to feel stronger in all ways. The fairies know the importance of physical activity--they play, dance, and run around daily to keep themselves in good physical shape. Moreover, they know that exercise is the secret to lasting energy, health, and happiness. It's a wonderful stress reducer that can improve every area of your life, including your career, finances, and relationships. You drew this card because your body is crying out for cardiovascular or muscular stimulation. If you ask the fairies, they'll help you find the time and motivation to exercise in fun ways.
Additional meanings for this card: Do something physical today - Take a cue from the fairies and take dance lessons - Exercise outdoors in nature to benefit from the fresh air and sunshine (as well as increasing your connection to the fairies!) - Do yoga, tai chi, or other Eastern exercise techniques - Exercise with your children or other loved ones - Join a sports team to meet new friends - Say positive affirmations to, and about, your body
Surrendering has been one of the hardest things for me to do...the healer in me wants to make everything okay. We are going through some tough times of transition collectively. I love how Penney Peirce describes it in her book, "Frequency"...to paraphrase, we go through cycles or waves of highs and lows. We are currently at the low point of the wave, and on our way back up. As we flow with the upswing, beliefs/people/situations/things in our lives that no longer "fit" or are in our highest good fall away...and this reading is a gentle reminder on how we can get through this transition period with greater ease...Surrender the things you find yourself holding onto so closely yet are causing pain, release all your worries to the "God of your own heart" (the Supreme Being you believe in), remind yourself this is ultimately a positive thing--that something new will be born out of this--that by letting go you will be able to get un-stuck, focus on what you do want, and take action to shift your focus...
For me, the "Get Some Exercise" card stood out the most as what will help me during this period, physically moving my body to shake things up.
P.S. Another tool that came to mind related to surrendering/releasing is writing down all your feelings of grief about letting something go and all your worries about what might happen if you do...and either burn, tear, drown, or put the paper into a "God box" of your choosing. These symbolic actions (which I got from books by Doreen Virtue, Julie Cameron, etc.) have helped me disconnect enough so I can start to focus instead on what is good in my life--what can be done--the possibilities!
Sending lots of love, and wishing you all the best...
