Gargoyles – Silence, Guarded
Suppressed feelings that need to surface and be felt. Let your guard down and open your heart. Thinking versus feeling, let go of limitations and surrender.
Okay everyone, we are kicking off July with a shadow card. Though you might automatically associate a shadow card as something bad, it's quite the opposite, it's an opportunity for a profound shift, and deep healing. Gargoyles are viewed by many as protectors and guardians. The image I'm first shown is of a gargoyle's stone cracking and shattering followed by him taking flight. There is a new wave of direction that you'll be integrating this month. Perhaps how you used to define yourself, or something significant in your life, has changed. For example, maiden to mother, or operator to owner. You are breaking free of the past and flying forward into the next-level-you.
As the card meaning states, this is a month to process your emotions. Don't suppress things, whatever comes up needs your attention. It's not there to annoy you, it's there to guide you. If you're angry, grieving, scared, or uncertain, this is a time to dive deep and explore the root cause behind those feelings. You can stuff things down and you can ignore things but that doesn't mean they'll go away. Those suppressed feelings will build until they get your attention, like a volcano eager to erupt. It may be weeks, months, or even years, but they won't 'disappear' until they have been processed and transformed for your greater good. Be willing to receive help, be fearless about acknowledging your limitless divine truth; and if someone you know is in need, then serve and be served.
This isn't a time to sweep something under the rug to deal with later. It's a time to make important connections. It's a time to remember your inner light and to reignite it if need be, or to further fuel it. Insights are inbound! This is a month to be aware of any area you may find yourself putting a shine on things. You deserve to be your most authentic, healthy, and fulfilled self. Follow your feelings, let them take you to the healing changes that are awaiting you. Don't judge a feeling as good or bad: some of the most uncomfortable emotions are the most valuable. As the saying goes, "Some dance in the rain, others just get wet." You are never stuck, healing changes are always available. Surrender, and trust in Spirit to deliver your highest possibility. Your heart is ready to bust open, and if you've felt like you've forgotten who you are, and what your purpose is, get ready to explore new territory and know yourself more deeply than ever. Being in the in-between and the challenges that come with life's transitions isn't easy, but it is a prime opportunity for healing, growth, and personal breakthrough. As Lao Tzu said: “When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.” Be in the present moment and choose peace, the benefits may surprise you.
To sum it up, this may very well be a master of a month for regeneration and spiritual awakening...if you allow it to be.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes as I feel guided.
