No matter what god or higher power you believe in, we are all part of a collective consciousness, both in this world and the next. Whether your reading comes from tarot, angels or archetype cards we are delving into that collective consciousness. If you are present with a psychic or clairvoyant who has strong connections, you may be connected to individuals but more likely you will be communicating with part of this universal energy which connects us all. Much of the connection comes through our own energies and this is particularly true of online readings.

The counselor comes at a time when we are suddenly thrown into turmoil and feel like we cannot see the wood for the trees. Instead of playing it over and over in our minds, its time to still the mind and let us be guided towards a solution. When the archetype comes reversed it often indicates this is happening to someone close to us. At times we may even be the cause of their turmoil and yet we don’t see or accept that.
The angel associated with The Counselor is The Angel Of Mercy
Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Creation , The Angel of Mercy is in the group known as Dominions.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To bring mercy into our lives
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help us to understand God’s love for mankind; make us conscious that we are protected and guided; contemplate gratitude for the blessings in our lives
The Angel of Mercy offers us the love of God as a living reality. When we are faced with an unbearable situation and suddenly there is a shift of energy or a change in circumstances, we are being blessed by The Angel of Mercy. We are helped constantly to turn our thoughts and attitudes around through the aid of Divine mercy.
It may be in small and subtle ways that we experience mercy. It can come in the form of a friendly phone call when we are feeling despair, or a gentle boost to our confidence in circumstances where we are unsure of ourselves. It could unfold in so many situations which we do not control, or where we are affected by our conscious minds. For instance, we could meet a person who changes our lives, or we could be accepted or rejected for a job or a course of study. On reflection we begin to realize the amazing consequences that this turning point had on our lives. This may be called mere coincidence in the rational world. I, however, prefer to accept it as the gift of The Angel of Mercy, who is working to make our lives fulfilled.
What this awareness of guidance and intervention brings us is an understanding of non-doing. This means we do not have to strive and push ourselves or be harsh or punishing to ourselves because things do not work out as we wanted. Trusting in Divine Mercy as a gift from the angels enables us to participate fully in the process of our lives.
We can pray for The Angel of Mercy to be active in our lives. Without trying to control our circumstances we can accept that mercy is constantly being given us and that we can surrender to the Source. We can accept the gift of mercy by being tender and gentle with ourselves and others. When we are oblivious to mercy we are domineering and controlling, stepping on many toes, living from our ego and opening ourselves to high levels of strife. The path of acceptance offers us mercy as a gift of unconditional love. Mercy moves us through the rough patches of our lives and on to new levels of awareness where we are living more fully in the light of Divine love.
