This week I was guided to work with the "Angel Therapy Oracle Cards," by Doreen Virtue. This has been one of my favorite card decks to work with because they have provided such wonderful, clear, uplifting messages and because each card in the deck corresponds to a specific set of Angel Therapy Action Steps provided in the guide book. If you have been thinking of purchasing your own deck of angel oracle cards, this is the one I would recommend.
As we begin, last week's message about codependency and addiction is echoed in the message "Heal Away Addictions." I am being given the strong impression that this card relates mainly to self care activities and releasing unhealthful habits rather than to the heavier issues of substance abuse. The angels give the advice that now is the time to take a look at those habits we have developed that we know are not healthy for us. This could be eating unhealthful food, not exercising, smoking cigarettes or overindulging in caffeine and sugar among others. The angels tell me, "Ask for our assistance in releasing these unhealthful habits and replacing them with a new, healthy lifestyle and we will instantly go to work clearing and healing you!"
In the middle of the week, we receive the "Earth Angel" card, which hints that many of us who are caretakers and healers are living Incarnated Angels who have spent many, many lifetimes in the angelic realm and who may well feel alone, isolated or rejected by other people. Earth Angels also have a tendency to hang on to unhealthy relationships long past the time when other people would have let go and moved on. The angels tell me that, whether or not you feel you are an Incarnated Angel, this card sends the strong signal that you are a Lightworker who was sent here with the specific life mission of teaching love. The best way to pass along this message is to lead by example by dealing with others in a loving, compassionate way and by remaining peaceful even in the face of conflict and contriversy. Realize that you will never change the opinion of another by force. All you can do is love others as they are right now. They may change in the future, or they may not. Understand that they were given free will, just the same as you were. If they choose actions or attitudes that you don't agree with, for whatever reason, that is their right. The angels tell me that the best way to deal with someone you don't agree with or don't get along with is to, "Send them love and then let them go!"
As the week draws to a close, we are advised to "Vacuum Away Fear." This card is a validation of other messages I have been receiving lately advising that it is very important for all of us to avoid harsh energies, people and situations as much as possible and to clear, shield and ground ourselves every day. You can do this by asking Archangels Michael and Raphael to come to you with their Healing Band of Mercy to clear away all negative, fear-based energy and lower entities. Envision them inserting a vacuum tube into your crown chakra which will suction away all of this energy. You may feel shivers, chills, pressure changes, tingling, warmth or other bodily sensations as this happens. This is normal and a sign that the process is working! Once your body has quieted, ask the angels to replace all of the negative energy that has been removed with white, pink or emerald green healing light. There are many other ways to clear, shield and ground yourself. The angels tell me that now is the time to begin exploring these processes as the harsh energies we are beginning to experience right now are only going to grow stronger as we near the energetic 2012 shift.

Monday, February 27th and Tuesday February 28th: Heal Away Addictions
"It's time to let go of behaviors that are blocking you from your heart's desire. Ask Archangel Raphael to help you with this healing."
This card comes to you to validate what you already know: it's time to let go of addictive behaviors as they're interfering with your health, happiness and life purpose. The angels ask you to be very honest with yourself and admit that these addictions are wasting your time, robbing you of energy and confidence, and blocking the answers to your prayers. Fortunately, the angels will support you through every step of healing away cravings and other addictive tendencies.
It begins with you making a clear decision to let the addiction (or addictions) go. Weigh the plusses and minuses of the addictive behavior. Once you're emotionally ready to release it, take the following Action Steps.
Go to a quiet place wher you won't be disturbed. Then say, silently or aloud:
"Archangel Raphael, I call upon you now ..."
Think of what you'd like to release. It could include destructive patterns, compulsive behaviors, toxic relationships and unhealthy cravings. Imagine these addictions (or a symbol of them) sitting on your lap or upper legs. You might see or feel the addictions or you may sense how they're attached to your stomach area with tangled cords, webs and roots.
Breathe deeply while saying:
"Archangel Raphael, I am now ready to release these former addictions to you and Heaven. Please cut all of the roots, cords and webs attached to these addictions and lift them to the light for transmutation and healing."
After Raphael removes the addictions, he'll fill you with his emerald green healing light to nurture, soothe and fulfill you. You'll notice a drastic reduction in addictive cravings. Repeat this process as needed until the addiction is completely cleared.
Wednesday, February 29th and Thursday, March 1st: Earth Angel
"You are a lightworker who has come to Earth to teach about love."
This card comes to you in response to your question about your life's purpose. The answer is: Teach about love. You fulfill this task whenever you're centered, serene and loving as that's when you're a role model of Divine peace. You needn't say a word, write a book or work as a healer in order to positively affect others. You merely need to be loving and compassionate in your interactions with others. Those who are peaceful teach about peace, which is the expression of Divine love on Earth.
You also received this card to help you cope with alienation issues, which means feeling different from others or that you don't belong. As an Earth Angel, this may be one of your first human incarnations. But don't worry, for you're never truly alone. The angels are always with you, guiding, loving, and unconditionally accepting you as you are. There are also other Earth Angels living among you who have similar backgrounds and experiences to your own. Ask your guardian angels to connect you with like-minded friends, and they will.
The key to teaching about love is to first feel it for yourself and your life. Take a pad of paper or open a blank word processing document on your computer and write down everything you can think of under the heading "What I Like About Myself."
Include every major and minor trait you can think of that you find positive about yourself. It's a private list, so admit characteristics you might normally feel shy about revealing.
Then erase or cross out the word "Like" in the paper's headline and replace it with the word "Love." Frequent review and add to this list of reasons why you love yourself. It will help you teach others to love themselves as well, through the process of self-acceptance.
Friday, March 2nd to Sunday, March 4th: Vacuum Away Fear
"Call upon Archangels Michael and Raphael to lift fear-based energy from you, your surroundings, this situation and everyone involved."
You chose this card because you, or someone close to you, have absorbed some energies of fear. They could have been self-generated from your own foreboding or may have come from being with fearful people.
Whenever you feel tired or have been subjected to substance abuse (such as spending time in a pub or bar), take time to cleanse away residual energies. You can conduct this process anytime or anywhere, even when other people are nearby. You can also conduct this "vacuuming" for other people - in person or remotely (just be sure to ask their verbal or psychic permission first).
To vacuum yourself or another person, just say:
"Archangels Michael and Raphael, I call upon you and your Healing Band of Mercy Angels to come now with your spiritual vacuum cleaner. Please deposit the vacuum hose through the crown chakra and suction away toxic, fear-based or entity energy."
See and feel the vacuum hose completely cleaning the entire inside of the body (including organs, muscles and bones) from head to toe. Shudders and other physical reactions are a normal and positive sign that the process is working. Continue until the body feels quiet, and then say:
"Thank you, Michael and Raphael, for this healing. Please now fill the body with your diamond-bright white light to heal and protect."
