Daily Oracle Card ~Believe.
Call it Soul, Spirit, or the Authentic Self:
The part of you that accesses fresh ways of seeing and being can also marshall incredible resources. The most creative aspects of consciousness are the hardest to define and pin down. In trying to form a solid, predictable identity, you lose contact with the vital presence of your true self.
We can fall into the trap of identifying exclusively with images of who we are. Encouraged to practice the fine art of ego building from the day we are born, we learn to deftly slice off shards of what we don’t want to be while refining the qualities we think would be the most pleasing.
Parents, teachers, and peers are the first critics we encounter; we internalize their aesthetics over time, trying to live up to their expectations. These facades we don for the sake of fitting in become just that facades. Learning to separate ourselves from the masks we wear and expect others to wear is the challenge of a lifetime.
In this effort, horses can be effective teachers. They’re attracted to authenticity and can help people shift from ego orientation into an experience of pure presence. Aligning yourself with the authentic you, free from facades, is a gift only you can give to yourself. 💜 Way of the Horse Oracles
