Understanding the Energy: The Complicated Loss in Love

Today’s Oracle reading is for you.

Past: Door to Romance

Present: Sixth Chakra, Archangel Metatron in reverse

Future: The World reversed

The Door to Romance card beamed strongly with optimism and hope. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? This time things were going to be different. Old wounds have healed or we’ve been focusing on self-love. We’re ready. We’ve never felt more ready. Perhaps we can even envision how things will unfold with dangerous, tempting glances from across the room, the way it leads to flirty banter, and then the whirlwind that sweeps us all away.

But then something happens.  Perhaps it was a failure to launch. You dressed your sexiest, felt your most confident, and oozed with confidence only to find yourself feeling more alone than ever. Or perhaps you made that connection. You found that person but instead of your relationship gaining traction to take you to new great heights, you’ve never felt more grounded and stagnant. Or perhaps you opened yourself up too much and attracted an imbalanced relationship that has left you feeling claustrophobic and wanting out.

The Door to Romance was once filled with so much potential. The energies were right there to be harnessed. The problem with harnessing energies is that the destination matters. The direction you set your sails to gather wind will dictate the path your ship takes. When we do not carefully chart our course and if we do not properly anchor our energies to our goals then we become lost. We find ourselves off course.

Regardless of how you arrived, the question remains the same, “What do I do next?” The plan that once held crystal clarity is now refracting too many blurred images in the sunlight. Something was lost in translation as we move into the present position with the reversed Sixth Chakra card of the Archangel Metatron. Ultimately, we did not arrived at the planned destination and we’re left mourning for what could have been while feeling adrift from the lives we’ve sought when we opened the Door to Romance.

Unfortunately, no progress will be achieved while you’re here. There is no real ground to be gained when you’re adrift in a vast ocean of nothingness or even everything-ness. There is only more ocean. The problem with feeling adrift is that despite how vast and limitless your world actually is, you feel windows and doors slamming shut as possibilities end one by one. As you continue to drift, you continue to pass a series of exit points and safe harbors that would otherwise help you find your course again. This is because the energies that now exist are based on the aimless trajectory of the currents previously set in motion. You will continue to be carried nowhere and everywhere  simultaneously until you set directional intention. If you don’t? This leads to a future in which the World of possibilities becomes reversed.

The World is often a card of perspective. In its most optimistic light, the world almost seems boundless, because the possibilities are beyond our ability to comprehend. Without the proper anchor, however, the endless possibilities can become limiting and overwhelming. We become lost in the expanse. Unharnessed energy or improperly harnessed energy is rarely as effective.

If you’re feeling adrift and you’re not sure where to go next then the first step is establishing an anchor. You will never know where you’re at so long as you remain floating unattached in the ocean. Take a few minutes, breathe deeply, and ask yourself:

What am I doing? Who am I? Where am I at?

Take stock of your current situation. All good directions have a starting point from where the course is charted. It’s important to note yours. From there you can ask the questions:

What do I want to be doing? Who do I want to be? Where do I want to be?

Identifying your destination will help you narrow down ways to get you from where you’re at now to where you want to be. It’s okay if you can’t answer all of these questions now. Or perhaps you can but your answers are vague. You may only know you don’t want to be here doing this as the person currently are. That’s okay, too. You’ve taken the first steps in identifying that you’ve lost your anchor and you’ve drifted away from your path.

As you start to identify gaps between where you’re at and where you want to be, avenues to bridge these two divides will begin to appear. In fact, you’ll see that they’ve been there all along, you’ve just lost perspective. By acknowledging that you’ve drifted from your path and by setting your intentions to return to your path, you’re starting to take back control over the energy that has always existed, but this time you’re using it to fuel your momentum forward towards the destination you’ve wanted all along.

The purpose of an energy oracle reading is to identify the connections between our paths and our energies. When we open the door to manifest love, we need to ensure our anchors are secure so that we don’t lose sight of who we are, what we want, and where we want to be. By fixing our eyes on the future we’re hoping to manifest, we can ensure that the future we arrive at is the one we planned.

There’s nothing wrong with allowing ourselves to be swept away by the possibilities; the key is to do so safely. Tether yourself to desired outcomes so that when you drift, you don’t drift too far.
