This week I am pleased to once again be working with the "Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards" by Doreen Virtue!
We begin the week with a message of "Self-Forgiveness," reminding us that it is human to fall short of our goals and to make mistakes. The important thing is to view ourselves, flaws and all, with love and compassion. When you find yourself running down that list of all your shortcomings, comparing yourself to others, or beating yourself up for not being perfect, ask yourself, "Would I talk to my best friend like this? Would I allow someone else to talk to my best friend like this?" If the answer is "no" (and it should be!), you have to remind yourself that YOU are your own best friend. Don't allow your best friend to be treated this way! Negative self-talk is as good as a negative affirmation to the Universe, telling it that you are unworthy and uninterested in joy, prosperity, energy and all the things you want and need in your life! The mermaids say, "When you find yourself saying negative things about yourself, immediately stop and say 'Cancel that!' then replace the negative statement with a positive affirmation. This will counter the negative energy and boost your self-esteem."
This lesson in releasing the past and moving forward continues into the middle of the week with "Time to Move On." The mermaids tell me that in order to move forward into our future, we need to let go of things that hold us in the past. They advise making a list of old hurts, angers, grudges, people, places and events that have happened in the past and make a conscious choice to let each of them go. You could say something like, "[old boy/girlfriend's name], I release you so that I can move forward into a bright, glorious future!" Repeat with each thing on your list and then allow your attachment to fade. If you feel that you need help, you can always call on Archangel Michael and ask that he cut any and all cords holding you to these negative events.
We end the week with the mermaids joyfully saying, "Make a Wish!" Now is a truly magical time and the mermaids advise us to keep an open mind and an open heart. They say, "Expect to see miracles, and you will" They say that now is the time to make wishes and spend time dreaming about the kind of future you want to have. They say that no dream is too big or too small. Allow yourself to give in to flights of fancy, unexpected detours and joyful spontaneity.

Monday, June 11th and Tuesday June 12th: Self-Forgiveness
"Let go of old guilt and remember that you're God's perfect child!"
You've been very hard on yourself lately, using harsh words toward yourself verbally or mentally. While it's healthy to hold yourself up to high standards, this card says that you've bordered on self-abuse! Everyone makes mistakes and it's normal to feel regret occasionally. What's important, though, is how you handle these mistakes.
As you focus on your positive attributes, your self-esteem will increase and your stress level will be diminished. Remember that guilt is the opposite of love. Your guilt doesn't help anyone or anything, but your Divine love helps EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE!
Affirm: "I ask that all effects of my mistakes be undone in all directions of time and I now release all guilt completely. I love my true self, from top to bottom."
Wednesday, June 13th and Thursday, June 14th: Time to Move On
"It's time to let go of the old and worn out so that the new can come in."
By drawing this card, you're alerted to the fact that you need to make room for the new by letting go of the old. First, let go emotionally and intellectually. In other words, "quit" or "say goodbye" in your mind and heart.
Once you do this, the physical letting go will happen naturally, in a peaceful and harmonious way. Ask Heaven to help you make this transition and don't plan, scheme or worry about how your letting go (or replacement) will occur. Put all of your energy into prayer and faith and leave the rest to the Infinite Spirit. You'll get definite guidance whenever it's the right moment to take action. Until then, stay lovingly detatched from your old situation.
Friday, June 15th to Sunday, June 17th: Make a Wish
"This is a magical moment. Make a wish and enjoy its manifestation!"
Say an affirmitive prayer right now, which means stating your desire as if it were already true. Thank Heaven for this reality and feel in your heart and belly that your dream is actually a reality. For example, say:
"Thank you, Heaven for [whatever your desire is]. I'm truly grateful for your continued support."
Now is a magical moment. Go into a quiet space - even if it's just for a moment. Close your eyes and imagine that your wish has come true. Feel it with your entire being. Then express thanks for this gift and release it like a baloon that goes straight to Heaven. If you need to take action to co-create this wish, you'll be given strong and repetitive guidance in the form of feelings, thoughts, ideas, inner words, signs, visions or dreams. It's important that you follow this guidance in order to bring the wish into physical form.
