Don’t blink ! Gifts are here! Open your arms to receive!
I have this deck as a mobile app too – Archangel Oracle Cards, also by Doreen Virtue. At one point, I needed to hear from a Higher Order of angels, so I got this one. Haha, this is quite a funny un-angelic rationale for buying this. I love the colours and how every figure has a glow to them. This is a very cheery set that I enjoy viewing as a gallery when I need some elevating energies.
One of Sandalphon’s principal roles is to deliver and answer our prayers. Woohoo~ I can imagine him carrying our dandelion wishes up to Creator.
“One of the ways in which Heaven expands is through giving and sending love continuously. This love is sent your way in many forms, and your only task is to be willing to receive. Right now, the answers to your prayers await your willing receptivity.”
I normally get this card when there is something blocking me from receiving (usually unworthiness) or some event is happening in a while which I am still not in the mindset of viewing it as a gift. The funniest example was we had a huge new project (it was a big milestone!), and I went “huh, shall we do just half of the scope”, and realised only later that I had not caught Sandalphon’s message correctly. I had my eyes on something else for Heaven’s gift. I probably also missed this part of his message, “Release any fears of receiving to me.” It was a big lesson for me because we were told in the later part of the day that they can only give us half of the scope. Dang!!! Next time this card pops up, I will say YESSSSSSSSS to everything that comes my way, however inadequate I feel or however un-enticing the gift appears to be.
Do you know (and accept) that it is our birthright to the blessings that Creator has for us? “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” is not just a verse from the bible, it is a Universal Truth. I feel there are many misconceptions around this. Firstly, when it is given, it may not be in the way you want it, but in a Higher way that brings you on a Higher Path. Sometimes it even comes in the form of nags and prods (thanks AA Raphael), or in the form of guidance of what you can do to receive what you asked for. Secondly, when we ask, we do not deprive others (this was part of what boggled me before). Sandalphon says, “All prayers are of equal importance in Heaven, and there are plenty of angels to help everyone on Earth.” Thirdly, it may sound like a no-brainer “of course, I want to receive, and I am ready to receive” but that is not exactly true if you examine deeper into your thoughts, actions, emotions, belief systems. Think about this: how often do you hold yourself back from something because you do not want to deprive / hurt / affect others? How do you know what you take / accept at that point in time will deprive / hurt / affect the people in question? Scarcity mindset sets one in the mind and environment of scarcity. Abundance mindset is one where the Universe blessings flows on and on, ever and ever. [Caveat: I’m not talking about greed or hogging here; just purely accepting what flows from Above.]
At the level of human realm, if we gift someone and that someone never uses or opens the gifts, would we still continue giving? I actually think Not, because it’s a waste, not of my money/time/effort, but a waste of the materials on earth used to make that. I do not imagine that’s how the angelic realm works though. It is important to Ask, because of Free Will / Free Agency. Angels will quietly watch us fumble (I do wonder if they get frustrated) but cannot step in until we ask for their help. Unless under dangerous circumstances, they step in a split second (I know this because they saved my life a few times), with a very quick “OI” or “HEY”. Once you ask, they deliver. You must also be willing and ready to receive, because sometimes they give loads more than we thought we asked for.
I am willing and ready to receive an abundance of love, light and blessings! Bring it on, Universe! ❤
