Bethany Angel Card Extended Description - Messages from Your Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

This card usually means you haven’t been taking care of yourself well enough.  I used this example with the “Let Yourself Receive” card from the Mermaids deck, but I’m going to use it here, too …

You can’t expect more of yourself than you do a machine.  If you have a car, you probably take it for oil changes (or someone else does), and you most certainly fill it with gas every now and then.  You take care of that car so that you can depend on it to get you where you need to go.

This card is telling you that you need to fill your own tank, and you probably need an oil change!  You’d never expect your car to keep going when the tank is on empty … Really, you can’t expect more of yourself than you do of a machine.  This card showing up somewhere for you means that you’ve likely done just that.

You need to do something nice for yourself!  A sea salt bath is great and so is a massage, pedicure or reflexology.  Other ideas might be to sit down and watch a movie that’s your choice to watch, paint your nails a funky color, sit outside and watch the birds or even take a nap for Heaven’s sake!  Whatever you do, it’s needs to be something that allows you some relaxation.

When you take proper care of yourself, you’ll have more energy to give to others.  Relaxing also opens you up intuitively, allowing you to better receive your own Heavenly guidance.  If nothing else, take this as a sign that your soul wants to connect with Heaven.  Your poor little soul needs a break, and relaxation is how you can give yourself and your soul what it needs.
