Card: Butterfly Maiden – from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“As you go through this period of change, it’s natural for you to wonder if your future is safe. I’m here to assure you that you’re part of nature’s cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. To bring in your desired newness, you must first allow old parts of your life to fall away. These changes are to be celebrated, not feared. Give thanks for this shedding of the old! Embrace all of the lessons it brought, and then let it go! Be giddy with excitement at the newness of the gifts that are now being bestowed upon you, and let their magic surprise and delight you.”
Message from Erin: Transformation is happening! I dunno about all of you, but I am finding myself going through some really big changes lately. Some of it I feel I have control over, but mostly I feel the Universe give me a not so gentle shove into new direction. At first I found myself resisting and ignoring the signs that were pointing me in a new direction, but my personal angels and faeries weren’t going to let me get away with it for very long.
Last week the faeries had guided me to pick a card for myself and I picked the “New Location” card. I wasn’t too thrilled to get this card as I was making plans to stay in my apartment longer, and I was planning on going to buy new furniture for my place. On Thursday I went to take the train to the store to buy new furniture. To my amazement, the train computer system went down and wasn’t able to take me. In this big city, having the train go down is a large inconvenience for thousands of people. The faeries told me to just go home, so I begrudgingly headed home. When I got home I decided to move some furniture around. I was getting my place ready for the furniture I was still planning on going to buy the next day. When I moved some furniture away from the wall, I found a bunch of mold growing underneath the paint and under the floor. My heart sank…I was going to have to move.
The truth is, I haven’t really been happy with my apartment. I have been thinking about moving for a while now, but I hate moving so I was avoiding it. I was trying to remedy my situation by buying new furniture. I knew deep down in my heart that I should start looking for a new place to live, but I was scared it would be such a daunting task. Well, my guides weren’t going to let me get away with that. I was living in a toxic environment, I’ve been having lots of health problems, and I was ignoring my inner guidance to relocate. Then I final let go, when I saw the mold, and allowed myself to be guided in another direction.
At first I was a bit upset, and I was annoyed. I went into my usual pattern of hiding away in my bed and ignoring everything for a day, but halfway through the day I got fed up with myself and I got out of bed, got dressed and went outside. I was ready for change! I was ready to move forward! All of a sudden I was no longer afraid. I just knew that everything was going to be okay. I just knew that everything was changing for a reason. I trusted the guidance I was receiving, and I knew with all my heart that this was the best possible outcome for me. I know I am going to find an amazing apartment that is going to help me with my transformation.
It feels as though, lately, that almost every day is filled with epic energy. The winds of change are blowing all around me and feel myself swaying and being picked up by them. The faeries want to remind us all to not be afraid. Everything is happening for a reason. Trust this. Believe this. The more you resist change, the more painful your experience will be. Just let go and go with the flow. You are being guided to great things. Believe.
