Last week I did an Oracle Card reading for a friend who wanted to know whether or not she should continue her University Studies. I reiterated in my video that my oracle card readings, though giving answers to specific questions, are not meant to be taken as professional, legal, or medical advice. They are simply a nudge from the Angels (Faeries or Old Souls) for you to listen to yourself. I figured that if my friend was asking such a question, then she obviously felt like she wasn’t happy doing the course. The question wasn’t so much whether should she leave, it was more – what was holding her back from making the decision? The advice that Velvet gave was to be more creative, to reach for the stars and to listen out for messages in song lyrics. After watching the reading, my friend told me that she had noticed songs the days before, in which the lyrics were telling her to follow her heart. To listen to herself. The day after I posted the reading, she quit her Uni course.
It may seem that she acted too quickly, perhaps rashly, but she had been thinking about leaving for a while, she just didn’t have the courage to face her fears and follow her heart. She felt stifled by the course and longed to be more creative, and knew that ultimately, the job she would get as a result of having the degree was likely to be just as stifling.
It seems to be more difficult now, with all of the demands on our attention and senses, to listen to our hearts. To really get still and hear that small, still voice within. The voice that knows exactly what it is that will bring us the most joy, the most happiness and the most love. Our minds interfere. Our programming cuts in. External stimuli fight for every available moment of our lives. Suddenly, years have passed and we are still doing the thing we dislike, are surrounded by people that we are barely tolerating and in the same financial situation.
So I would like to invite you to take a few moments. Switch everything off or go somewhere where there is nothing to distract you. Get still and quiet, and invite the voice within to speak to you. Ask yourself if you are on the right path. Ask yourself if your current lifestyle brings you joy. And if you know that things need to change, ask yourself what you need to do in order to make those changes happen.
You have within you all the answers you need. But if you do need a little nudge from the Angels, send me your question and who you wish to ask – Velvet, Aria or Amethyst. And with their help, I will try to connect you to the wisdom within you.
