Coming out of my absolute favorite oracle deck of all time thus far, is from Alana Fairchild - The Sacred Rebels. 100% the best yet for me & hopefully for you too as I share weekly messages from this insightful deck.
This week's message is 'Releasing Allegiances' [ card 10 ] where Alana, her guides & the sacred rebels go on to give us this message:
"It is time to hold onto yourself and let go of another. Even if just for a time. You have gained all that was meant to be from that connection. At least for now. You have given and you have received. The need to let go does not deny the value of what has been acquired, it is more that the time has come for greater productivity, creativity, abundance and consciousness in your life.
You have completed many cycles in the vibrational frequency of consciousness that you are now being asked to release. You have been in that vibrational frequency for some time now. You have earned the right to step out of that frequency, out of the habits, relationships and the possibilities that are limited to that outmoded frequency. It is now time to expand into higher frequencies of experience that will bring enhanced love, empowerment and peace into your life. You will take the wisdom of what you have learned with you into something new - new connections, new relationships, new life experiences - at a higher turn of the spiral of life.
But first - you!
Trust that you can step into solitude for a time without being consumed by lonelieness. It is time to reconnect with yourself. Perhaps you have had a period of outward orientation where your energy has been diverted away from the inner journey of self-discovery and creative self-expression and into the world of lists, schedules and demands. Trust that you may need to step back momentarily even from your healthy relationships and commitments, to refresh your spirit by reconnecting with your own nature in solitude. Perhaps you have been diving so deep into the creative waters that you have lost your bearings or your energetic connection to the earth, your own life and your needs in the here and now. Either way, you need to come back to the ground of your own body.
This is a time for the self-love, for paying attention to yourself, for nurturing, holding and being with you. It doesn't mean you can't love another, it just means you need to turn you attention inwards for a time, for some quality time, with you. You will emerge renewed, refreshed and clearer about your journey and your relationships as result of this.
This oracle is also confirmation that the work you have been doing on yourself is working for you! Your level of self-love is growing and your ability to love consciously and healthily is increasing as a result. Some connections in your life will mature along with you and your regard and affection will deepen and blossom. It will be revealed that other relationships are no longer relevant to your life journey. You will know which is which because you will feel it. You will feel it most clearly when you have some time to be with yourself, in reconnection.
If you have been contemplating a change in lifestyle, enrolling in a class or joining a group, starting a project or setting aside time to focus on your inner work, then this oracle comes as confirmation that these things would be supportive, healthy and helpful for you.
This oracle also comes with particular guidance. There is a situations that has recently arisen, or will arise soon, where you need to back yourself. Don't be out upon or hoodwinked into backing down by the emotional reactions of others! Stand your ground and stay aligned with what you know to be true. No matter how wonderful something seems logically or on the surface, if it doesn't feel right for you, it is not for you at this time. Perhaps that will change and it will be right for you later. Perhaps you will step away and realize, with relief, that you had a lucky escape from a situation that would have ended up unnecessarily costing you. Either war, backing yourself and not give in to the opinion of another, no matter how highly you would have rated that opinion in the past, is important. It is highly likely that you are breaking with tradition, with a role model or belief system that you have outgrown. You must be there for yourself because you are doing well, you are on the right path, and you are growing. Well done!"
