For today I've drawn “Release the Dark Wound, Let Love Live” Card number 15 from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Deck.
We see the releasing of a beautiful fish in the water. Look at the colors and shimmering of his scales. And do you see how the bones are coming to life again in both the fish as in the one who lets go. I imagine that is how old wounds look like when released in the ocean of Love.
When you are holding one to those old wounds you might notice they are all connected; rooted in one deep primal dark wound: “The Death grip of Perfectionism” . Feelings of unworthiness, fear of failure, guilt, regret; all these pains can easily be backtracked to the need for a perfect life.
I can relate to this. I mourn my losses but I also mourn the loss of what never has been but what possible could have been. And believe me that is something wonderful and blissful. And it hurts to let go of this just as much as it hurts to let go of grief from the past
This card urges us not to let ourselves be defined by our wounds but to heal them with Love and experience how much energy and vitality is gained by letting go of our sad stories.
Look at how eager the fish is to swim and bath in Love. Let’s free ourselves of the need for perfection and watch how we start to shine!
"In order to go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfectionism."
