Tuesday's Oracle - Vacuum Away Fear

This week's Oracle Card is "Vacuum Away Fear" from the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. This card is beautifully illustrated by Howard David Johnson and shows a Golden-winged angel holding high the serpentine staff that represents health and healing. When an angel is depicted holding this symbol it is usually representative of Archangel Raphael who is considered to be the Archangel of Healing.
The card reads; "Call upon Archangels Michael and Raphael to lift fear-based energy from you, your surroundings, this situation, and everyone involved."
There is a simple visualization and meditation technique that I LOVE, during which you ask the Angels, your Spirit Guides, or the Universe to vacuum away any negative feelings, fears, illnesses, etc. from your physical and auric field. This week I have had some concerns because my schedule at work has been changed and I will be making less money. I think this card is an excellent reminder to give my fears over to God/Goddess and not let these fears or worries plague me. We all need a reminder now and then to release any negative energy we are carrying, and the Angels can help us with this! The exercise is simple;
Sit calmly and breathe deeply for a few minutes. Relax and pray. When you feel comfortable, call upon Archangel Raphael (the Divine Healer) and Archangel Michael (God's Warrior and our Protector) to come to you.... visualize and feel their presence close to you. Visualize that they are holding a golden Vacuum tube that extends to the heavens. Ask them to use this vacuum to suction away any negative thoughts, worries, anxieties, and fears. They will slowly and gently attach the vacuum tube to your Crown Chakra (at the top of your skull) Breathe deeply and evenly and feel the vacuum suctioning away all negativity from your being. You can visualize black and gray flecks like bits of dust being pulled from your body into the vacuum. These flecks of dust may be held in any part of your body.... start from your feet and work your way upwards visualizing and feeling the release of worries and toxins as these feelings are vacuumed away. Visualize the dark spots being sucked up the vacuum tube all the way to the heavens.... here they are given to The Universe and The Divine to be healed. Once you feel like you have been cleared, ask Michael and Raphael to fill you with healing and love. They will put the vacuum tube in reverse and it will fill up your body with light. You can feel and visualize this as a warm white, purple, or blue light which seeps into every part of your body, healing the places that were holding the negative energy, giving you a feeling of peace and strength, and filling you up with the Love of The Divine. Thank the Angels and The Divine for their help and healing, breathe deeply, and when you are ready, open your eyes. Stretch and look around. Your vision may be brighter and clearer, and you will have a deep sense of calm and a new confidence and love radiating through your aura. Go about your day as planned. If you find yourself worrying or feeling fearful again, stop and visualize the light inside of you erasing away that dark spot. Sometimes it has become a habit to worry, we just have to work on replacing the fear-habit with a love-habit. Don't punish or judge yourself for being fearful or worrying.. this is what you're used to doing. Just gently correct the thought and replace it with a positive, loving thought.
The guidebook for the Healing With The Angels Oracle Deck gives us a prayer that we can use when we do this exercise.
"Archangels Michael and Raphael, I call upon you and your healing Band of Mercy Angels to come now with your spiritual vacuum cleaner. Please deposit the vacuum hose through the crown chakra and suction away toxic, fear based energy."
Meditate and visualize as suggested above. Before you ask the Angels to reverse the flow and fill you with light, say this prayer;

"Thankyou, Michael and Raphael for this healing. Please now fill the body with your diamond-bright white light to heal and protect."
(Doreen Virtue suggests asking for a white light, but I have noticed that sometimes the light the Angels send me is purple, violet, or a sparkling blue.... trust that whatever color of light the Angels choose to give you, this is the type of healing you need at this time. If you have trouble "feeling" the color then just visualize sparkling white with prism like rainbow reflections and trust/know that whatever type of healing and protection you need is flowing from the heavens straight into your physical body.)
You can also help others with this healing by guiding them through it, or with their permission, simply asking the angels to do this and visualizing the same as above, but on the person in need. Another thing you can do is ask the Angels to vacuum away negative energy from your physical surroundings. They will gladly assist you in clearing away negativity from any space, room, house, or object using the same technique as above. You can visualize the Angels attaching their Spiritual vacuum hose to your vacuum cleaner and as you literally vacuum away dirt they will vacuum away the negative vibes that may be present in that area. (But you don't have to physically vacuum to do this, just ask for their help!)

Archangel Azrael

I didn't get a chance to draw and post an oracle card yesterday for "Tuesday's Oracle", but I still wanted to draw an oracle card for the week! So here is "Tuesday's Oracle, on Wednesday!"

I decided to use the deck, "Archangel Oracle Cards" by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. and see what Archangel is coming to me this week for advice. As always, this Archangel will have a message for others, not just me, and I trust that those who need to hear this message will be guided to it.

The card I drew today is Archangel Azrael; Counselor
The message on the card is, "You are a natural counselor, and many people benefit from your guidance and reassurance."

I have always been one of those people whose friends come to her for advice and comforting. I think this is a big part of my life purpose, and why I am so drawn to fields such as Tarot and Oracle card reading, astrology, and teaching. I love to help others and often it is in the form of advice and comforting or counseling others that I can help them.
Sometimes I doubt my abilities. Of course, it is human nature to doubt and fear our own abilities. I sometimes fear that the advice I give in a reading is wrong, or that I'm not saying the right thing to help or comfort a friend in need. I think I got this card because Archangel Azrael wants to reassure me that I am doing the right thing. As the card says, I am a natural counselor... I need to chase away these doubts and worries and just trust! Not only trust in myself, but trust that the messages I receive are divinely guided! I think this is a message that many people can relate to. In our life, there will ALWAYS be a time when we are called upon to be a counselor in some way or another. We will have times when our friends ask for advice, or just need someone to listen. There will be times when we need to comfort the living when someone they know has died, and times we need to counsel our children through rough patches of life. In any of these times you can call on the Archangel Azrael to help you be the best counselor you can be, and trust that what you say and do is Divinely Guided and comes from a place of pure Love.

Archangel Azrael is commonly known as The Angel of Death, though his name actually means "Whom God Helps", and he assists those who are helpers of others. Azrael is the angel who helps guide souls to God after death, and he can also help assist us in contacting our loved ones who have passed on. Azrael is the Archangel who watches over, guides, and helps Counselors - especially grief counselors, mediums, and many forms of people who offer guidance to others. Any time that you feel you are being called upon to counsel someone else, no matter how small the matter is, you can ask Azrael to give you guidance and compassion. Trust in yourself, with the help of God and Azrael, to be the best counselor that you can be to your friends and family - for it is in being able to help others that we find a greater connection with the Divine and our true purpose in life.
