Using Archangel Animal Oracle Cards by Diana Cooper Read by Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons
Please bring a prayer for the Holy Spirit with you. He is the translator and witness of truth.
One thing you want to understand about me is that I have lived my life in the companionship of Jesus. He has always been my faithful confidant and guide. I know there are angels and this deck speaks of them directly but I do not feel impressed to expand my relationships in such a way at this time.
That does not mean that others who do are not totally spot on in their walk. I just want to be free to walk mine. AND I am not suggesting that others walk my walk, I just want the freedom to do so and thus far, I have it. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this. It truly means the world to me.
I hope the author of this deck will forgive me for not using its full symbols and access to the inner self. This goes without saying for any deck that is used. Physical or intellectual symbols are guides to help us understand our true being. They will be used differently by everyone. Do not be afraid to listen to another because you do not speak with the same symbols.
We are all heading to and from the same place. We are all of God and Divine Communicators of the Truth, even when we witness of the fictional reality of the illusion.
Rhinoceros; Be strong and courageous.
I heard on a nature show that the rhinoceros is the most fierce of animals and it has taken the most human lives. Comfortable on land and in the water means they are versatile. We might liken it to our physical and spiritual selves. Are we being true to ourselves, first by knowing what we believe in and then by bearing witness of it so that it can grow and develop to its full potential?
Badger; Bring your life into balance.
Another animal of fierce strength. Here suggesting the male/feminine that lies within all of us. That which stakes a claim in the world, while living in touch with its source and self. Self nurture and awareness can be balanced with a voice in the world through whatever means your role has given you. Have you longed to write or sing and just not made time for it? This is your call to be a voice in the world, even as you nurture the inner divinity that is you.
Cat; Be relaxed and independent.
Everything you need to know is already within you. The feline walks the spiritual and physical freely. You have the capacity to “be” without having to put a lot of effort into it. The greatest effort that you want to make is shedding the belief that you need to conform or be something that society accepts. You are you and that is wonderful. Know that being authentically you is fantastic and beneficial to all that is.
Parrot; Listen intently to understand.
When in the physical, and elsewhere, it is important to be observant. Not only to sights, but to sounds, tones, nuances. There is a lot more going on than meets the eye. We mimic to learn how to function in the world as the parrots do, but understanding of what we mimic comes from listening to the still small voice that is connected to all time and to the source of all that is. There is a translator, known in the Christian world as the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.
This is the companion that helps you navigate within the world of the physical. He is spoken of as if he were a being separate from the self, but this is because humanity has so long felt himself separate from God. In truth it is a part of himself that has been closed off. It takes only a willingness to open the door to this part of being that will guide you, and all with whom you come in contact to, back to Father/God/Creator/Source/Self.
As part of the Godhead of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are in fact all three for separation was never a part of the will of God.
Acknowledge your strength by having the courage to find out who you truly are and what you believe. Your strength lies in the ability to change beliefs so that they align with who you truly are.
Your masculine and feminine tendencies can be brought into balance to give you a resting place within yourself to nourish and strengthen yourself, while reaching out and having a voice in the physical world in the way that you are inspired serves to bring others hope and encouragement.
Be at ease with who you are. Your inner voice is something of value and your independence need not be given away, even if you choose to share your life with another. Honor your truth and you will honor others, whether they agree with yours or not.
Listen well to the world around you. Be observant. The day will come when all that you have seen and heard will come into alignment and make sense. Do not still that quiet voice within you and follow someone outside yourself.
Take what others share and what others are and pass it through your own inner guidance mechanism. You are not alone and you actually have more helpers that are unseen than the ones that are seen.
Know that you are loved and part of the great awakening of the One that we all are, even the Christ, the Son of God.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
