Monday 8 to Sunday 14 April 2019
This week’s reading was inspired by images from the Gateway Oracle by Denise Linn. The card I’ve randomly chosen for the overall theme this week relates to indulging your senses. Life can become a bit of a bore at times as you get bogged down in routines and responsibility. It’s important to balance that out with some enjoyment, after all… life is for living. So this week, indulge yourself and your senses in whatever way feels right for you. Savour your food, cherish your loved ones, feel the beauty in your present moments, and satisfy your needs. As you live your life with abundant pleasure it becomes a whole lot easier and better to tackle those chores and responsibilities.
Image 1: Rise to the top
This week the angels remind you of your strength and want you to know you have what it takes to rise to the top. It’s highly likely that life has been challenging you lately and you may have questioned yourself, your place, your worth or life itself. But life isn’t out to get you, even if it sometimes feels that way. Life is here to support you and to help you grow. Challenges arise as an opportunity for you not to give in or give up but to stand taller and show what you’re truly made of. It is also important that you don’t compromise on your core values and beliefs. You want to get to the top feeling proud of yourself and your choices, not getting there by compromising yourself. If you’ve already done that it’s not too late to turn things around. Stay true to you and don’t allow the thoughts, opinions or actions of others override what is right for you. Release any fear you have about stepping into your power too. There is nothing to fear and everything to gain.
Image 2: Energy flows where attention goes
This week the angels guide you to pay attention to where your energy is going. What are you focusing on? What are you spending your time doing? And are these in alignment with what you want? If so, you might start to see the results of that shining through. If your attention and energy hasn’t been in alignment however, it would explain why you aren’t seeing the results you want. Shift your focus to what you do want. Use positive words and affirmations, along with gratitude, to bring your desires to you. Eliminate tasks that aren’t that important and use the time on the things that are. Additionally, you may start to see growth occurring this week. This may be within yourself as you grow beyond old patterns and limitations or within a relationship or situation in your life. What has been stale and stagnant begins to turn around and something grows as a result. It is up to you whether you choose to continue to nurture it or not but if you want it to grow that’s what you need to do.
Image 3: Shedding the old
This week the angels herald an opportunity for you to shed the old in order to make way for the new. There may be storms on the horizon but with the right attitude you’ll get through to the sunshine relatively unscathed. You are a tower of strength and are this way as a result of all that you have experienced and survived in your life. If things are currently or soon to become a little challenging just remind yourself of this. You have what it takes to get through and survive. This is a great time to be clear about what you want for yourself and your future too. Put the seeds of intention out into the universe and watch them grow. With the right energy, love and attention they too have the ability to whether the storms and survive in order to thrive. Don’t be too concerned that you can’t see everything that is up ahead either. Life is a constant ride of ups and downs and twists and turns but that is what makes the ride enjoyable. So relax, let go and just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Image 4: Time out
This week the angels encourage you to take some time out. Perhaps you or your soul is feeling a little tired or perhaps you have an important choice or decision to make. Worrying about your problems won’t solve them so instead, take some time out to enjoy the pleasures that life has to offer. Enjoy being present and appreciating the simplicity of being in the moment. Slow down and remember to enjoy the journey. It’s great to have a destination to journey towards but you’ll get so much more from it when you learn to stop and smell the roses along the way, so to speak. Additionally, this links in rather nicely with the overview message for the week. Enjoy indulging your senses, in all forms. This is something that has been lacking from your life and you may be surprised by how much shifts and changes as a result of engaging your sense of sight, taste, touch and smell. Do be mindful of not overindulging though. You want to enjoy yourself but you don’t want to feel regretful afterwards.
