Daily Angel Oracle Card: Our Lady Of Holy Fire, from the Mother Mary Oracle, by Alana Fairchild and Shiloh Sophia McCloud
Our Lady Of Holy Fire: “To live is to burn, to grow and to ignite the heart and soul with passionate devotion to higher purpose. I ask you to honour me, even when it seems like what you love is burning away, or what you have believed in is failing you. I ask you to remain open to me even if you are in shock, denial, or feel betrayed or broken. To live with an open heart, is for the brave souls that love me, and are capable of loving the world. I bring you Holy Fire. It burns through me as a spiritual passion and ignites now in your also, my child. You are to receive this fire now and set the heart of the world aflame.”
“When we don’t have spiritual passion in our heart, we fall in love with empty substitutes. We might yearn for a fantasy relationship that never quite manifests, or does for a short time before revealing itself to be less than substantial. Or perhaps we yearn for a great job, with a great income, only to find that even if we achieve this, there is still a space in our hearts that is not satisfied by what we have attained.
To feel truly connected to our own divine destiny, we have to be willing to allow our hearts to burn for something greater than our own individual needs and wants. It is not comfortable to do this, but it is fulfilling in a way that cannot be attained by any other method.
It is not bad to have individual needs and wants of course. We cannot quench another’s thirst if our cup is so broken it cannot sustain nourishing liquid for us, let alone for anyone else. Yet the oracle of Our Lady Of Holy Fire speaks to us of a passion for the Divine coming into our hearts, which will us and empower us to love the world, allowing the Divine Mother to flow through us and assist our world, which is in the midst of rebirth right now.
The Holy Fire in our hearts is what makes us want to grow spiritually – we cannot help but be intrigued by it, feel drawn to it, compelled to work at it, and keep going even when it gets tough or seems downright impossible. It is what makes us want to contribute something helpful to the world, to become empowered and truthful in how we live, to want to live with goodwill and a genuine desire to that all beings become happy and free. That Holy Fire in the heart is what fuels us when we are in dark, challenging times in our lives, when we force ourselves through the strength of our inner will, to reach towards the Divine for help, rather than collapsing in defeat, or drowning in feelings of rejection or abandonment.
Our Lady Of Holy Fire is the patron protector of the mystical soul, the soul that yearns to know the Divine and connect in a real, nourishing and palpable way. That soul wants to know the Divine more than it wants to play power games or rule the world. That soul wants to cut through all the nonsense that it knows is not important, and experience divine truth.
You hold within you this mystical heart, beloved, and Our Lady comes to you with acknowledgment of this, and appreciation for your spiritual passion. If you have been feeling that your faith has been wavering, or finding it difficult to trust that a situation will work out, or doubting yourself, fearing that you are not honouring your inner wisdom in a particular situation, Our Lady comes to you with comfort. She reinforces your spiritual strength now. She reminds you now of the unlimited divine resources you have access to, through her grace. She reminds you that to love is to burn in a spiritual fire for the Divine, and that this fire is in your heart, ignited. She reminds you that you are her child, yes, but you are a living divine flame, filled with her power and glory, and nothing shall subdue your light or spirit.
If you are finding it difficult to relate to this message, you are beings asked to loosen your grip on a situation that you are trying to hold on to. Let it burn in the holy fire of the Mother, and know that what emerges from that situation will be far superior and far more suitable for all concerned. Allowing it to burn means being completely honest, not hiding yourself or your true feelings. It means giving up the doubt, and daring to believe that you don’t have to be afraid. If you don’t feel ready to do this quite yet, that is fine. You will get to that place at the right time and in the right way. Trust her, and trust yourself.”*

There is nothing more powerful than inspiration. When we are inspired, we can fly. We can function without sleep or food; we can take on and breeze through the most difficult of challenges. Nothing can hold us down when we are truly inspired. Yet where does this inspiration come from? Who does it hinge on? Who is truly worthy of setting our hearts free; protecting them and keeping them safe while we soar?
Only the Divine. Makes perfect sense when you think about it.
We want to find inspiration outside of us. We want it in the perfect man or woman, lifted by their love and devotion only to be let down with a resounding thump when the honeymoon is over (even if the love continues, the inspiration generally does fade somewhat if not entirely). Changing our appearance, getting something new, moving, traveling, getting a new job or promotion… all very inspiring for a time…
When we can find our innate connection to the Divine, seeing the Light in ourselves and all other beings; then we can find true, lasting inspiration. Faith is the door to miracles.
Mother Mary is reaching out to embrace us; she is offering her Divine wisdom and support; unconditional Love and complete acceptance. She wishes to help us to re-light the fire of our spiritual Passions, kindle the flames of Love, creativity, abundance, magic and possibility.
Reach out to her with open heart and allow her to guide your way back to the magic within.
