The question I tend to ask, when drawing a card for the collective each week, is "What will be most helpful for the collective this week?" It's a pretty solid question, in my humble opinion.
When I asked that question for this week, and drew the card below, from the Work Your Light oracle deck, my response was simple: "Yup."
Our card for this week is Align Your Life: What is no longer in alignment with who you truly are? What a card it is. And what a question that is, there as the subtext.
What is no longer in alignment with who you truly are?
It's a drop-mic question, in that the challenge - the mission - is clear. And yet, it isn't in my nature to leave us without a supporting message from our spirit teams. Here's that supporting message:
"Create an understanding of what you do not wish to drag with you through the remainder of 2018 and into the refreshment of 2019. Allow your heart to examine the ways of the ego and relinquish what is out of alignment with your truth; with your true essence.
"Understand this is a layer of preparation for the incoming year. The preparation must make room for what is needed. That means a releasing of what is not needed is necessary. Permit yourself to transact this examination and open to the wonderment of 2019."
Oh... "The wonderment of 2019" sounds, well, wonderful. Doesn't it?
May it be that we can conduct this heart-led examination - self-inquiry - with compassion. May it be that we choose a commitment to what we need aligned within us. And may it be that with compassion and through commitment we release what needs it.
P.S. I'll be offering a year-end divination practice via Instagram again. Closing the Book on 2018 begins December 1, and may support you in preparation for 2019.
