Slow & Steady Wins The Race

OonaghToday we meet the the lovely & nurturing Celtic goddess, Oonagh from Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards. The artwork by Elizabeth Kyle is organic & relaxing. The peacefulness flows like a lazy current down a winding summer stream from Oonagh’s eyes into the translucent dove and then her long flowing hair. She is soft, relaxed and perfectly in tune with her body. You can see her loose mane of curls are infused with highlights from the rainbow, each curl intertwined with hope. Just as a wave in the ocean is not separate from other waves, you cannot tell where one ringlet begins and another one ends, representing connectedness. The dove rests on top of a crescent moon representing the support provided by the universe.  The white lilies represent beauty, innocence and purity. Call upon Oonagh when you need a soft place to fall.

Oonagh may be peaceful and relaxed but she is no pushover. She cares passionately about causes. She has unwavering faith that everything is going to work out as it should. She wants you to know that your life purpose is YOUR OWN! There is no competition for it so there is no need to worry about it.  Perhaps you have lots of friends or not enough, a thriving career or a fledgling one, a feeling of purpose or a feeling of being adrift on the edge of a storm. Wherever you are in your journey, know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Do what matters to you, forget what other people think and stay YOUR course slow and steady.

Human nature propels us to action. We believe that somehow through the very act of “action”, that we are improving the situation before us. That said, the single most useful, helpful & most repeated piece of advice I ever received is, “When you are not sure what to do Lisa, do nothing!” When tragedy strikes, we often feel that we MUST do something, anything! But that is our ego talking. It is in stillness that we find the real answers. I recommend taking a couple of minutes and meditating on the image of the card. What do you feel as you look upon the images and what jumps out at you? This should lead to some clear messages for you regarding where you can let go a little bit and relax your approach.

Personally, I find this card very comforting. One stormy morning before driving into the city I was feeling a bit on edge about driving in the bad weather. I (smartly) sat down with my Goddess guides and asked for guidance. I’ll give you one guess who showed up? “There is no need to hurry or force things to happen. Everything is occurring in perfect timing.” I can’t think of better advice for navigating through rush hour traffic, wind, rain and construction. I thought of her often that morning and rather than a tense drive in, I felt a very nice flow in my commute and had a stress free morning.

Love & light, Lisa
