Oracle Reading on Surrendering to Love

8 of Wands

Today’s reading found me utterly peaceful and surrendering to the Word of Source which is love, peace and joy. I have been working on releasing my attachment to the material world and my ego’s story of who I am. This morning, I awoke feeling ready to surrender. Ego crept in and said, “But what if you can’t keep this up for more than an hour?” My response was to turn to my Higher Self and ask her to help me choose to only hear the Voice of God. The result was that I was able to move peacefully into the next moment. I realized that this is all I desire. I am reminded of the Reiki precepts:

Just for today…
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not anger.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will love and respect every living thing.

I used the Stephanie Pui-Mun deck titled, Shadowscapes Tarot. The card I drew was the 8 of Wands:

“She sets her staff before her, step by step to the top of the rise. The glow-globes wave lacy fronds on either side of the path. She remembers how a childhood friend called them wishes, and that to take one and blow myriad seeds to the wind would send that wish out. And the farther those seedlings traveled, the more power for truth and fulfillment they would gain.

“She bends down to pluck one. With the puff of a breath, she sends the seedlings on their way. It is the ending of the lovely flower that blooms so delicately into elaborate spheres of ethereal beauty, but the beginning of a new growth. The seeds spin away on the wild winds– at the mercy of entropy but sailing with the purpose nature bestowed on them with the gift of gossamer filaments. Sal away and beyond, and then set down to grow to become a mighty tree!

“The Eight of Wands is the beginning of a long journey towards a goal. A great undertaking is at hand, and it speeds towards reward with hope and momentum.”
