While You Overthink the Details, an Angel May Have Your Back

Maybe, like me, you feel you should have gotten more done today. Maybe, like me, you’d feel better about yourself if you were more productive — or perhaps, more proactive, about solving problems in your life. Maybe, like me, you are just prone to overthinking, period! But today’s cards are a call to take two steps in that department:

1. Be compassionate to yourself. Do the best you can and accept that even your flaws have beauty.

2. There is support, love, and protection available from the universe for you.

It is possible to heal. It is possible to let go of negative situations. Toni Carmine Salerno says that his Blue Angel card represents Archangel Michael, and his book that goes with this deck advises that we trust our blue angel to watch over us, and to help, support, and protect us as needed. However, bear in mind that the angelic view of your life may be different from the way things look to you! I’ll tell you a story that illustrates what I mean. Now, I have to tell you that I always feel a little embarrassed talking about angels. But I am certain they exist — and that one saved my life a few months ago. I was walking through a parking lot, looking up at the moon, and not paying the slightest bit of attention to traffic. Suddenly, it seemed as though a force field slammed up against me. I could not walk any further forward. It felt like a force field in a science fiction movie. Then a car zoomed past inches in front of me. It would certainly have hit me if I had kept walking ahead and mooning over the moon. And whatever problems I had in mind in the back of my head that day, none of them would have been improved by me being hit by a car! While we may be obsessing over details (like the way the moon looks tonight, or our debts, or our children’s fussy behavior, or who wins the next election), angels are focused on the important stuff. Your material comfort and immediate desires may not be a huge priority for them — but your fundamental well being at a deeper level, is. It can be a tremendous relief to let go of the details and the overthinking for a bit, and let the angels handle it in their own way. Whatever you are worried about, it’s nice to know that someone out there is on it.


  1. Sounds like you had a very narrow escape, Bonnie! I too believe that we are supported by energies greater than us…angels, spirits, whatever people want to call them πŸ™‚ I adore what you say about being compassionate with ourselves – I never get much done, never as much as I really should and I berate myself constantly for this. Today I shall be more compassionate to myself πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Ali! Productivity is a constant struggle for me too — I always feel like I used to be better at getting things done than I am now. Slowly getting there, but I wish I was faster! πŸ™‚
