Oracle of the Week: 13 - 19 May 2024 – Compassionate Kindness

I couldn’t think of a more beautiful message as we celebrate our mothers this Mother’s Day just past, than the one brought to us by Manta Ray Mother. Our relationships with our own mothers are not always good ones and, indeed, Mother’s Day can be painful for many of us. Manta Ray Mother is here to step in where problematic (or non-existent) relationships with our own mothers may be failing us and she wants us to let go. Let go of the tight grips of control we place on ourselves. Let go of the harm, the hurt, the lies we’ve experienced to and about ourselves. She is showing us how to bring compassionate kindness back into our lives – and we could all use more of that, especially in these challenging times.

12.  Manta Ray Mother – Compassionate Kindness


From the guidebook - the sacred meaning of this card:  Nurture yourself; grace; self-love and care; divine mother; spirit of joy; comfort; compassion; gentleness; forgiveness; laughter

The Manta Ray Mother brings us messages of inner peace, bliss, joy, and nurturing. Imagine her manta wings wrapped around you as you breathe deeply and feel her love for you. She understands that, too often, we let all of the terrible things we’ve heard about ourselves throughout our lives shape who we are. That’s why she’s here for us now. Where perhaps our own mothers failed us, or could have done better, she’s here to provide that motherly love and comfort, and to remind us that we are so much more, and better, than we believe.

Holding tightly to the negative, not allowing ourselves to journey in flow, keeping a tight muzzle on our own feelings – none of these things serve us in the end. Manta Ray Mother asks us to treat ourselves with the same compassionate kindness we treat others, especially when they’re hurting. She asks us to breathe deeply, feel her loving presence and hug, and remember who we are. We are better than we’ve been told and she wants us to put that energy into ourselves, and into the world this week.

For those of you just joining us on this journey, we are using Justine Serebrin's Sacred Sea Oracle: Dive into the Depths of Your Cosmic Soul.

This deck is absolutely stunning and is a perfect guide for us as we navigate 2024.
