Card for the Collective 9.27.22
Due to my present [read: insane] writing schedule, I’m focusing on simplicity and brevity in all areas of my life. When I sat in my morning meditation today, I asked for guidance regarding this reading. I also asked my guides to keep it short. As you can see from today’s Card for the Collective, we’re on the same page.
My question as I shuffled the deck was, “What does the Collective need today for the highest good of all?”
FAITH. Humanity and Benevolence. In addition to being a common noun meaning “belief,” Faith is also a proper noun and the name of an archangel. The Twin Flame of Archangel Michael, Faith has a divine mission to help humans focus on their connection, rather than on separation. She wants to help us remember to see the love we have for ourselves in others.
The key principle here is that we must love ourselves first. Once we recognize the light in ourselves, it’s impossible not to see it in others.
Okay, so not such an easy task. This is where true faith comes into the situation.
If Faith is asking us to believe, we need to ask ourselves to be honest about what we believe. Many people growing up in this culture were taught a belief system that says you’re separate and in competition with others. This fosters the opposite of faith: mistrust and fear.
It’s also hard to have faith in yourself in an atmosphere where you likely were taught not to trust yourself, and that you need to look outside yourself (to parents, teachers, and other authority figures) for guidance and truth.
Yet living on the planet today demands that we each re-examine our belief systems for flaws, cracks, and malfunctions. Clearly, some beliefs need updating. (And truly, what is a belief? A thought you keep thinking. Change your thoughts,…)
What are some words or ideas that you can substitute for current beliefs that no longer serve you or humanity?
It’s not me asking, it’s Archangel Faith.
For my part, on the altar with this card today, I’ve added quartz crystal for clarity and orange carnelian to bolster the power of your intentions. The candle of third chakra lights the fire of your solar plexus energy center, which represents how you present yourself in the world.
What will you radiate out to the world today?
Until the next time… my best, Shelley
