The Opal card can represent much more than what it appears to be. We’ve received many questions like, “But I don’t have children … what could this possibly mean for me?” This is a card that everyone can connect to because everyone was once a child themselves.

Opal Angel Card Extended Description - Messages from Your Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen VirtueIf you’ve drawn this card, consider the possibility that maybe the message is about your own inner child. The description Doreen gives for this card is about the Angels watching over your physical children, but your Angels and guides will use the cards on this site to send you messages that the author may not necessarily have originally meant. Although I do have a child myself, this card has been coming up in all my personal readings lately – ones that had nothing to do with my child. I kept asking what this was about and received a very clear message that this card was about healing my own inner child. I was blown away by what that meant regarding the questions I’d been asking. Even if we think we’ve healed from something, it’s possible that little person inside our hearts is not yet all the way healed. Children process pain differently. As we grow into adults, maybe we “heal” certain fears and traumas without realizing what we’re actually doing is hiding them somewhere deep inside.

This card is also strongly connected with Archangel Gabrielle’s energy, who is the Archangel of parenting, communication, nurturing (including self-nurturing). It makes sense that this message would not just be about parenting and nurturing your physical children but also the one within us.

If you do have children, also consider how healing your inner child (and helping him/her to know that she is safe and “well cared for by God and the angels”) will help you in your relationship with your own children.

Personally, I had something happen recently that sent me into a downward spiral of chaotic and painful energy. My whole life, there has been something that causes me a deep hurt, but there was nothing I could change about the situation, so I went about the process of healing the situation to the best of my ability. Basically, I tried my best to not think about the situation because it’s something that broke my heart every single holiday and any other time I happened to think about it. I believed that I’d let it go … that the purpose of that situation was to create who I am today … but then something happened that brought it all back. Someone I love almost died, and I thought that I would never see him again. In desperation, I reached out to someone I had never talked to before and was afraid to contact … In one conversation, he broke down a well built wall that I didn’t even realize my heart had painstakingly built around this pain. The wall had turned to dust, and the dust cleared to reveal a frightened and sad 12 year old girl. My heart broke in so many places that I didn’t know how to begin fixing it – fixing her.  Honestly, I’m still not sure because I’m still working on it, but I do know that finding that broken little girl within (and admitting she exists) was the first step in truly healing.

May you find peace, love and blessings for your child within.

    I also often feel that I am being watched over by my guides like a mother watches over her child. That’s often how I interpret these kinds of messages. But I like the idea of also being a parent/nurturer to a project or idea that is happening, maybe even yourself. I get this card all the time, thanks for the description and sharing your story as well 🙂

    Thank you for so openly sharing. I get this card often and have wondered exactly how to receive it. I have 5 children but find my greatest challenge in nurturing my own growth and development. Your explanation provides tremendous insight. Blessings to you on your healing journey. It’s comforting to know you still seek guidance from the cards.

      Thank you, Shani. I absolutely do still use the cards! 🙂 Angel cards are an excellent way to help our Angels and guides connect with us. I do have other ways of receiving signs/guidance, but I do absolutely love Angel cards. 😉
