"T minus 6" - Point of Reflection # 4 - Ascended Master Oracle Deck

It's Monday.  I don't know about you, but it felt like our emotional plates were full this weekend, and to add even one more thing "to do" (even if it was only a requested shift of perspective) might have been asking too much.

So in honor of this being Monday and everyone putting on their game faces and stepping back out into the world of doing and running, I'll be offering two Points of Perspective today.  Shorter ones.  Perhaps one will resonate with you more than another.  Perhaps not.

First up is the Ascended Master Oracle Deck, (affiliate link), created by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

Centering myself, I asked for a link to whichever Ascended Master had something in particular to say to us today.

I chose Amaterasu - "Come Out of the Closet" 

Initially, I resisted this choice.  I thought, "Oh right.  What a dumb card to pick.  This will just make this whole process look ridiculous."  (Yes, I had this reaction despite the fact that I work with Spirit and my intuition on a regular basis - and have been for YEARS.)  But then I read the text:

"It's time for you to make your real feelings and beliefs known.  This card asks you to reveal who you really are to yourself and others.  This may involve having a heart-to-heart discussion with a loved one or allowing other people to see your true nature.  You will be spiritually supported in this process, and the ascended masters will help you to be lovingly honest.  As a result of coming out of the closet, your relationships will deepen because you'll know that you're loved for who you really are.

Additional meanings for this card:  Let go of judgments about yourself or others; Speak your truth with love; Allow others to get to know the real you; Trust that your authentic self is lovable and likable; The more  authentic you are, the higher the energy and success of all of your projects."
(c) 2007 by Doreen Virtue 

While searching for the image of this card so I could post it, I came across a fascinating retelling of the story of Amaterasu here.  I was so moved by the message contained in this rendition of this ancient story that I urge you to read it too.  There is a bigger message here, if we choose to hear it.

It just fits.  We need to find our voices, and not be afraid to use them. 


  1. I love the message of this card, I think it might be my favorite one so far! I have been reading, I just felt I didn't have anything meaningful to comment yet. This made me get over, and so... I'll just let you know I'm really enjoying your countdown!

    Love you. :)

  2. Something tells me a little bird whispered in your ear. Love you too.

    1. He actually JUST told me now... I must have picked up on some vibes to get over myself on many levels, ha ha

  3. I did this today with a dear friend. As my truths flowed out of me I was amazed at how at ease I was, how soft and well paced the stream of confessions. It felt so lovely giving voice to fears and failings without anything but space and relaxation at how and where they landed. Spirit freeing, Lisa.

    Coming home and reading this is the bonus.
