This week’s reading (my interpretation) of the Self-Love Oracle from Akal Pritam.
Self-love card one
The oracle reading for the “Soul Lesson: Surrender” card is a reminder that sometimes the only way to move forward in life is to release control and surrender to the flow of the universe. It’s natural to want to hold onto things tightly, whether it’s a relationship, a job, or a belief system, but when we cling too tightly, we block our growth and potential.
This card is urging you to let go of anything that is no longer serving your highest good. It may be time to release old patterns and beliefs holding you back or to let go of a situation that is causing you stress and anxiety. Surrendering doesn’t mean giving up, but rather it means trusting that everything is unfolding as it should and having faith that you will be guided to where you need to be.
Tip: When you find yourself resisting surrender, take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that by letting go, you are creating space for something better to come into your life. Trust that the universe has your back, and have faith that everything will work out in the end.
- What are the things in your life that you are holding onto but no longer serve you? Write a list of these things and reflect on why you might be hesitant to let them go. Consider the benefits of releasing these things and how they could improve your life.
- Think about a situation or person that you are having trouble letting go of. Write about how this situation or person is impacting your life and well-being. What would happen if you were to let go of this situation or person? Write about the positive changes that could come from releasing it.
- Write a letter to yourself, giving permission to let go of anything that is no longer serving you. Write about what you want to release, how it is affecting your life, and why it is time to move on. Write about what you want to invite into your life and how letting go will make room for positive change. Reflect on what you are willing to do to move forward and embrace new opportunities.
Self-love card two
The oracle reading for the “Soul lesson truth” card suggests you are being called to explore the deeper truths and lessons of your soul’s journey. This may involve delving into past experiences and traumas that have shaped you and examining how they have influenced your beliefs and behaviours.
You may also be prompted to examine your current circumstances and relationships and evaluate whether they align with your true self and soul’s purpose. This card encourages you to trust your inner guidance and intuition as you navigate this journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth.
Tip: To fully engage with your soul’s lessons and truths, creating a regular practice of self-reflection and introspection can be helpful. This may include journaling, meditation, or seeking the guidance of a spiritual teacher or mentor. Remember to approach this process with compassion and non-judgment, as the path to self-awareness can sometimes be challenging and uncomfortable.
- What is one belief or thought that has been holding you back from pursuing your goals or living the life you want? Why do you think you have held onto this belief, and how might you begin to let it go?
- Reflect on a time when you felt truly aligned with your values and authentic self. What were you doing, who were you with, and what made that experience so powerful for you? How might you incorporate more of that into your daily life?
- Take some time to journal about your fears and worries around a particular situation or decision you are facing. Then, try to shift your focus to your inner wisdom and intuition. What guidance or insights do you feel coming up for you? How might you trust and act on those insights, even if they may be uncomfortable or challenging?
Self-love card three
The Sacral Chakra flow with life represents our centre for creativity, pleasure, and emotional balance. The energy of this card reminds you to let go of any stagnant emotions or beliefs holding you back from fully experiencing life. You are being called to embrace the natural flow of life and allow yourself to be fully present in the moment. This card encourages you to connect with your passions and desires and to express yourself freely and authentically. Trust your intuition and listen to your inner voice to guide you towards what brings you joy and fulfilment.
Tip: To enhance the flow of your Sacral Chakra, try incorporating practices that help you tap into your creativity and inner passions. This could include activities such as dancing, painting, writing, or any other form of self-expression that feels natural to you. Take time to explore what brings you joy and make it a regular part of your routine. Additionally, paying attention to your physical body and nourishing it with healthy foods, movement, and self-care can help support the energy flow in your Sacral Chakra.
- Reflect on a time when you felt like you were resisting the flow of life. What was causing you to feel this way? Did you eventually find a way to surrender and let things unfold naturally? How did you feel once you were able to let go of the resistance?
- Think about an area of your life where you tend to overthink or over-plan. How might you approach this area with more openness and flexibility? What small steps could you take to invite more spontaneity and ease into this part of your life?
- Imagine yourself as a leaf floating downstream. What obstacles or challenges might you encounter on your journey? How would you respond to these challenges? What would it feel like to surrender to the current and trust that you are being carried exactly where you need to go?
