You are never alone in the world. You are surrounded by helpful beings, both seen and unseen. Simply saying the word by humbly and lovingly requesting assistance sets that help in motion. Whenever this card appears, take a moment to center yourself, focus on the Divine in any way that feels powerful for you, and – from the bottom of your heart – ask (silently or aloud) for the help you need. Next, consider whether there is any person, animal, or group in the physical world that might be able to help you with your challenge or issue in the form of advice, empathy, companionship, comfort, monetary aid, physical assistance, or any other form of support.
Next, you must allow this help in an energetic way. In other words, when we ask for help but then hold onto a need to control or a belief that we have to do it all ourselves, it makes it difficult or impossible for this help to come into our life experience. This effectively blocks the natural flow of divine assistance that wants to suffuse and abundantly characterize our life experience. To illustrate, it would be like asking a friend to drive you home and then refusing to get out of the driver’s seat. The friend is willing and able to help but is restricted from doing so because of your reluctance to receive the very assistance you requested.
So, in order to allow this help to arrive, take some deep breaths, consciously relax any tension in your body, and from a feeling place rather than a thinking one, unclench everywhere and envision releasing all tension and worry to the Divine for healing, transmutation, and swift and perfect assistance. See, imagine, and sense all the energy within any former challenges being transformed into positive forward movement. Release all expectations about how this is supposed to look or how the outcome is supposed to unfold, and trust that in the hands of the Divine, all will be well.
The following ideas and messages may apply to your present situation; notice any that particularly call out to you as you read:
Release the need to control everything and any beliefs such as “if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”
Affirm, “Help is everywhere for me now. Helpful beings in both the seen and unseen worlds abound. Everyone is always helpful. I now allow myself to receive the help I need.”
Affirm, “Divine orchestration now characterizes my life experience. Everything flows smoothly and harmoniously. I am safe and all is well.”
Call on the great goddess, or divine feminine, in a way that feels powerful for you.
Call on and envision angels surrounding you and the situation you’re inquiring about.
Relax and envision pure, powerful white light surrounding and suffusing you and everyone and everything involved in the situation.
Relax and trust that everything is perfectly unfolding.
Take a warm sea salt bath and allow all tension and worry to dissolve and disappear from your body, mind, and spirit. This will create space for the perfect outcome and assistance to arrive.
Know that you don’t have to do everything yourself.
Ask a trusted friend or family member – you know the one – for advice or support.
Remember that no one is an island: interconnection is the way of things, and therefore receiving help is the very essence of life.
Envision yourself cocooned in a huge, gorgeous, fragrant, energetic lily blossom and release all your cares to the realm of the Divine.
From the bottom of your heart, write out a request to the Divine detailing exactly what you’d like help with. Finish with a sincere thank you for the assistance that is certain to arrive. Fold the paper twice, toward yourself each time. Set it under a white candle (then light the candle) or place it beneath a white quartz crystal or a vase of lilies.
