This morning I watched one of my favorite YouTubers, Melanie Beckler, give her weekly angel card reading for the May 29th Full Moon. I’ve been following her closely for the past year- particularly her readings and meditations- and it’s been both eye-opening and comforting to see parallels with her guidance.
After soaking in her reading, I was left with a few messages about the upcoming Full Moon and how it relates to my own life:
- It’s okay to ask for assistance- our guides and angels are here to support us;
- We must let the past go to step into our true purpose; and
- Once we understand who we truly are, we will live an abundant life.
In this particular reading, she ended with the Archangel Gabriel card- the angel of communication and creativity. There has been no doubt in my mind that I have been lead by this powerful messenger angel; although I used to be timid or shy when speaking my truth, something bigger than me has given me the confidence and grace to speak up. Keeping quiet never served me in the past, whether it was holding back in my writing or going with the values or morals of those around me instead of my own.
I’m just me. So are you.
I often wonder if I have wasted my time or talents over the years because I did the things other people “expected” me to do. However, that thought has shifted; each experience, whether valuable to my interests or not, has provided me a lesson to share with others. I know what it’s like to move across the country multiple times, work a variety of different jobs, call off a wedding, live on hardly any money or material possessions, live with much more than I needed, yet most importantly- I have learned to be comfortable in my skin.
No matter where I am at mentally, physically, and emotionally, I have learned to be comfortable. To honor my feelings. To know I am okay just as I am.
That is the biggest lesson of all.
Situations will continue to appear in our lives until we can heal from the past and let go of the energies that no longer serve. Even though I have cleared the major “junk” out of the way, there are little triggers that appear out of the blue to test me. That’s okay; I just have to be mindful not to let those triggers trip me up, get me down, or stunt my growth.
Although Memorial Day weekend is coming to an end, I am relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to see the world through a different lens; a lens of beauty, hope, and optimism.
The past is gone, and now we have tomorrow- and a beautiful Full Moon to enjoy.
