Predictability is the kiss of boredom- (or so I have always believed).
I have decided to break the pattern early on, before there is much of a pattern to break.
So, instead of a Tarot Card, posted in the usual format, here is a card of a different persuasion altogether:
Introducing the “Healing with the Angels” Oracle Cards, by a collection of artists, created and published in 1999, according to the specifications of author/psychotherapist Doreen Virtue. Today’s Card “Support” was created by artist Bruce Harman, and is a warm, beautiful validation of the efforts of lightworkers everywhere.
This wonderful illustration shows an angel, a light-being, a human light-worker, a shaman, and two elementals- all joining their spirits and working together to draw energy from the stars and send it to the earth. Their hands glow with white light, and their faces are joyous and serene. They may not know each other in waking life, but they sense the presence of the others they work with, and are connected intimately to one another beneath the obscuring veil of material existence. The stars above sparkle and flash in acknowledgement of the energy exchange. Everything in the image is alive- the figures, the earth, the stars, and the space between them. Everything is conscious, and experiences the sharing.
Looking at this card, and considering the rich details within it, I am reminded of the principles of “entrainment” and “non-local reality” in quantum physics, where it has been discovered that all atoms of related energy signatures react simultaneously to events, no matter how great the distance that separates them. What happens to one, is experienced by them all, no matter if they are on opposite sides of the known cosmos. The separation is the illusion, the connection the reality.
In Doreen’s commentary on this card, she speaks of being part of a team that promotes the miraculous. She writes that drawing this card means you are being supported and drawn into a conspiracy of light that protects and surrounds you constantly, even as you are being encouraged to do this work on behalf of others as well as for yourself. You are urged to acknowledge this input from unseen sources, and interact with them in your imagination, because thoughts are as real as any physical object. Real actions start as ideas, and it is when we dare to act upon our imaginings that we bring the miracles we hope for into manifestation.
Long ago, I heard someone say that if you just paid enough attention to what was going on around you, and kept track of it for 30 days, you would never again deny the existence of miracles in your life. I conducted the experiment, and found that it was true! I also found that when I asked for support, it came. It didn’t always come in ways that I expected, or in ways that I would have ordinarily preferred, but it came nonetheless. I also learned that I had to ask for this support, and recognize it when it came.
Gregg Braden talks about this dynamic form of prayer in his book “The Isaiah Effect” and writes that when enough people join their intent in a focused, meaningful way, changes occur that defy so called “rational” explanation. He gives numerous examples of these events, including accounts of some that he witnessed personally. Many other authors document the same kinds of occurrences. The evidence is overwhelming! Look around you with an open mind. Keep a journal and see for yourself- the miraculous moves in every walk of life. It’s waiting for you to notice it’s readiness to bloom in your conscious existence, in ways both small and large. Support will come from all around you when you ask for it, as surely as your feet are supported by the earth beneath you. Let yourself ask for guidance, and watch for the synchronicities and subtle prompts that will illuminate your path.
So, basically, it’s our mission- as aspiring lightworkers- to recognize this power that we hold within ourselves, and join our intent to use it collectively- for ourselves, for each other, for the good of all living beings, for the healing of the planet. It’s up to us to cooperate with the universe, in promoting the conspiracy of light and joy.
