I won't go into details in this category, but I just participated in something that I haven't done in a long time. All the while telling myself that I was being true to myself - the whole "100% ME" thing. Yes, I've done this "type" of thing with others - but never with anyone that actually 'mattered'. Talk about a soul-bearing experience! Honestly, it was a first for me, and that's rare to come by these days!
And all morning, I've been meaning to do a guide reading. I was waiting until I was in the 'right' frame of mind. I just did and this is what I got (see previous post about self esteem):
I drew the "Self Esteem/Guardian Angel Michael" card...
"You may feel like the 'ugly duckling' right now, as others snicker at you and discount your ideas and beliefs. They may even outright laugh at you. Fortunately, the Guardian Angel Michael is present to help you remain grounded and true to yourself, even in the face of being so profoundly misunderstood. He counsels you to remain faithful to yourself and rebel against the ignorance of others. Don't be afraid to stick up for yourself and your beliefs. Yes, it's scary, and you'll probably feel alone, but never fear: Michael is surrounding you, and he urges you to ignore popular opinion."
"Don't seek approval, and don't let the put-downs of others get you down. Michael encourages you to claim your self esteem and use your voice to define your boundaries and uphold them. Be aware of those who would like nothing more than to knock you off your pedestal and throw you into self-doubt. They would steal your soul if you let them. Summon your courage and invoke Michael to protect you. Tell those who invade your space or disrespect you in any way to back off! Michael's message: to take a stand."
Well, damn. You cannot tell me that a person's energy (Angels) doesn't have the ability to attract exactly what it needs at that moment. That is one belief I will always defend.
I needed to hear this right now. 'Nuf said.
