Pick A Card



Today's cards are from The Tree Angel Oracle by Fred Hageneder.

Above you will see a picture showing three cards 1, 2 & 3 (left to right). Close your eyes, tune in, and see which card you are drawn to. I have put crystals below each card as you may be drawn to a particular crystal instead. Scroll down to the number and read the message that is meant to find you

Card 1

Hazel

For thousands of years, the Hazel has been among our favorite trees. Why? Because hazelnuts are so delicious! People are not that really different from squirrels, skipping around from one dessert to the next. And the hazelnut nourishes us all.

The angel of the plant encourages a healthy amount of carefree spontaneity and, most of all playfulness. Its gift is sweet food for our inner child, whose laughter ripples through its dense canopy of leaves. Finding our inner child may take a while for some of us, but when we rediscover him or her, all our senses open up to the wonder of the moment and the magic all around. We discover the wisdom of simplicity, and our joyful attitude toward everything makes us spontaneous, flexible, and happy.

I can't tell you any more just now because I want to go out and play!

However, when the angel of Hazel is missing from our lives the key points resulting from its absence are lack of playfulness, boredom, feelings of inner emptiness, fear, and self-pity.

So, let's stop right there; but instead, squirrels, here I come!


The Oracle

Play and sensuality are jewels

And songs of joy,

Diamonds that hold back

The ravages of time,

Trust and leap!

Take life with both hands.

Open up to a world full of magic!




Card 2

Ivy

The Ivy is the only tree in the oracle that has relinquished its ability to grow vertically - its backbone, so to speak. This allows Ivy to weave in and out, climb and crawl, and wind around things. It succeeds in places where others cannot. It protects other trees and covers ugly ruins and wounds on the Earth. High in the canopies of other trees, Ivy catches the light that the trees leaves don't need. Eventually, after many years, it might begin to steal the light from its host tree, but this seldom happens, and only then in woodlands that have lost their natural harmony. It usually occurs as a result of widespread man-made radiation from a variety of technologies.

The angel of Ivy allows you to take part in its unparalleled willingness to serve the Earth. Selflessness, humility, loyalty, and modesty are Ivy's gifts. Sam Gamgee, Frodo's faithful friend in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, is a brilliant example of this principle; absolute loyalty and devotion without any thought of reward. In a society that predominantly values wealth and high social standing, it is particularly important for us to take note of Ivy's 'medicine'. It is also precisely this medicine that is indispensable for the healing of the planet. It is time to change our way of thinking and choose new values.

May the green heart of Ivy weave its way around the stock market and global corporations and inspire new goals and values!

Without the blessings of the Ivy angel, arrogance, self-seeking, boasting, and smugness come to the fore and profoundly gives way to shallowness.


The Oracle

Don't ask for reward or compensation,

Or whether someone sometime will recognize

The greatness of your actions,

It makes no difference to you,

There is no need for triumph.

The greatest happiness is found

In following your inner path.




Card 3

Field Maple


The Field Maple grows modestly in the landscape whilst going about its work quietly. Are you familiar with it? Do you know what the leaves and fruits look like? Most of us would have to answer "no", but this is precisely its message; to serve without expecting reward or recognition. We must simply do what needs to be done because work is love made manifest. The person who brings themselves into resonance with the Field Maple starts to demonstrate qualities such as foresight, honesty, reliability, common sense, efficiency, and good organizational abilities, among many others.

Socially this means good management, fair work practices, and remuneration, teamwork, and job sharing; or simply knuckling down to whatever has to be done. So now it's time to put down this book, stop looking at the pretty cards, and roll up your sleeves.

If we cut ourselves off from the influence of the Field Maple we start to sink under the weight of unfinished work, although it may not bother us since we have probably fallen asleep in front of the television again. Occasionally we feel overwhelmed, or like running away, and we rapidly distract ourselves from the task at hand. On a social level, evils such as despotism, exploitation, and moral disintegration set in. Accumulating on a global level, they accelerate the ecological crisis because the (inert and well-established) older generations steal the future from the younger generations - and from all other life forms and ecosystems.


The Oracle

Do it! Get the job done!

You have your hands and words,

The power and your mind.

It's time to act.

Weave love into your work

And sow the sweetest fruits

For tomorrow's children.
