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.

Seen by many as something destructive this archetype is usually VERY misunderstood. It promotes the destruction or removal of negative influences in our life, the things that hold us back, and sometimes can refer to a person we are allowing to influence us in a way that is not beneficial to either party. If you draw this card reversed, it is a warning to look closely at your life and be true to yourself about the things that need changing.
The angel associated with The Destroyer is The Angel Of Trust
Belonging to the REALM: Heaven of Creation, The Angel of Trust is in the group known as Virtues.
ANGELIC FUNCTION: To open our hearts and minds to trusting in the goodness of life
GIFTS FOR THE EARTH: This angel can help us to learn lo trust ourselves: learn to trust in life itself and all it has to offer us; learn in trust other people
The Angel of Trust works with our Higher Self to help us express and develop a trusting attitude towards life. This trust can manifest itself when we are caught on the fence, torn between being negative, cynical or destructive and wishing to be positive and believe that our highest good and greatest joy are being fulfilled.
This angel offers us the essential love of spirit we need in order to trust and be truly life-affirming. Trust can make all the difference in the qualitative experiences of our life. To be able to trust is an essential ingredient of happiness and ease, otherwise our energy will be tied up with suspicion, doubt and fear. Trust gives us the courage to move forward or take risks that we would not be able to take if we lacked this one component vital to growth and spirituality.
The Angel of Trust helps each one of us to value our experiences and trust our perceptions. Only through listening to our inner wisdom can we develop the quality of trust which we so vitally need in order to progress through life. When we learn to trust in the goodness of life we have a more joyful time and more worthwhile contacts with others.
Odd though it may sound, trust reflects itself in all our choices, from the relationships we form, to the jobs and careers we pick, right through to the type of clothes we wear. When we are lacking in trust we will always be carrying an umbrella and choosing the safest, least challenging way of doing something, fearful of hurt or of doing it wrong. It is only when we dare to take risks, to stand up for what we feel and to trust in our inner sense of right and wrong that we eventually develop a sense of mastery about life.
We can offer prayers to this angel to help us trust our inner sense of knowing. We can ask for trust in one another so that we can feel safe expressing our love and care for one another. This angel wants our life experiences to be healthy and nourishing. Nothing is more undermining to our spirits than cunning or betrayal.
