Father Healing Card Extended Description - Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

You’ve got Daddy issues?  Don’t worry … It’s okay!  Lot’s of people have Daddy issues.

This card is telling you there is some kind of healing that needs to take place in relation to a father figure in your life.

Father related issues tend to leave people feeling like they are undeserving of what the universe has to offer them, thus creating lack in their lives.  Letting go of negative feelings related to your father figure can help you to know you deserve good in your life and to actually create abundance, prosperity, joy and so much more.

Holding anger in your heart takes up too much space, and good things have a hard time moving in.  Allowing fear to manipulate you can leave you distrustful of the good that does find its way in.  And, if you’re like me, your grief can make you feel like what good you do have can be taken away.

Or, maybe you’re always seeking approval from the father figure in your life.  Do you get that approval, or do you feel small and unfulfilled?  Have you given away your personal power to your father figure?  Allowing your self-worth to be determined by a man who may not be able to see your worth or show you how wonderful you are is not the best plan.  If this is the case, it’s time to take back that power.

I’ve heard people say that it’s so easy to let go and heal, but it’s not always so easy for everyone.  However, this card showing up for you is saying that you’ve got some work to do.  Don’t forget to ask Heaven for help. May Archangel Michael give you the courage to face what holds you back.

Angel Blessings,

**UPDATE 1-22-19** It has recently come to my attention that this post makes it sound like I hate fathers and believe that others do or should as well. I really do not understand how someone got that from this post, but I do understand there are people who have loving relationships with their fathers, and I am happy for you. Even if you did have a great relationship with your father, this card can still mean there is some type of father healing that needs to take place. It does not mean the healing needs to be regarding an abusive relationship.

This Angel Card Reading project was completed several years ago. This post was written over 6 years ago as part of a project that involved helping others to develop a deeper connection to the cards. Myself and my colleagues were writing personal descriptions for how we personally connected with these cards. Our intention was to help others learn how to receive messages on their own – without the need for a psychic.

At that time, I had very deep emotional pain regarding my father, and I still do believe that getting this card means you most likely need to heal something related to your father or father figure, or possibly your father needs some type of healing. If this message does not fit you, I encourage you to purchase the deck at the link below where you can see the description written by the author.

Thank you and Blessed Be. ~ Rev. Sheri

This card is from the “Magical Mermaids & Dolphins” Oracle Card Deck by Doreen Virtue.

    I get this card often in my angel card readings however I don’t feel I have any father-related issues. What could the angels be trying to say to me? Both my parental figures have been and still are very positive influences in my life and I am grateful for the loving connection we share, so when this comes up so often I struggle to find the meaning. Thank u for your help <3

      Hi AwakeV

      It can be a challenge to say depending on your question and where the card comes up in the reading. It can also relate to a “father figure” in your life. I would meditate on it and ask your angels and guides to give you clarification on what the card means for you. You can also get a personal reading from our on demand reading link or consult Fawn or Kathi under Blog/Articles “Articles by….” then from within their article you can link to their personal website for information on their readings as well as prices. If you have other questions regarding getting in touch with someone for a reading contact us here http://www.angelmessenger.net/contact-us/
      Angel Blessings!

        Hi, everyone. The Father Healing card has come up for me for awhile now. My Mother passed at age 32 when I was 11. I had (till I was 40) an even tempered, hard working, very generous and loving dad. I am very grateful in that because I had early sexual abuse from a (step) grandfather, and an assault (this was 1966 or so) while walking to school at age 7. Even though very early on, I had been shown and taught self care and self worth, these things and the lack of a mom to guide me led to very low self esteem. Going forward, after a few bad choices, I married another unfortunate choice…I don’t need to lay all that out here…but after 28 years I finally got out and started to begin to heal. I think my drawing the Father Healing has to do with my perception and expectation of the worst in men….Remember Dad was wonderful and he raised my 2 younger brothers and I with dignity and honor, logic ..and so much love. wow. I think I need to write about it…that would be a start…

          Hi Anne,

          Sorry, you had to experience the abuse as a young child and I am glad you had a loving father. I am glad you recognize the Father healing coming up and that there may still be “men” emotions to heal.
          Journaling can be so healing that is a great place to start.
          Many angel blessings to you

      Rev. Sheri says:

      Father energy represents the masculine aspect of the universal God-Source energy. When balanced this energy is protective, giving and allows us to be expansive in our own energy (partly because we feel safe in giving of ourselves to the world).

      Keep in mind the description above is my personal interpretation/experience with the card. I always recommend that everyone has their own personal copies of both decks used in these readings to develop their own personal connection to the cards. I believe this is very important.

      For your personal situation, I would consider that you do have a supportive and loving father … maybe the universe is trying to remind you that you are safe and supported in expanding your soul and sharing your true Divine and beautiful self with the world. Remember, in sharing your beautiful self, you will also give others courage to do the same. <3 I hope this helps. 🙂

    I’m curious what this card can mean for me. I get it a lot, even though I have an amazing dad. I do tend to defer to authority figures. Could that be it? I also have some deep self esteem issues, but they were born out of abandonment from my mother.

    Ariana says:

    This has been coming up for me alot lately. Actually I grew up without a father due to an early death on his part, but I feel like in general this card can simply apply to the fact that we live in a patriarchal society that is based on robbing women (and the feminine in general) of any rights. So I feel like this can be a personal relationship, (which it often is, as that is how patriarchy manifests), but also the feelings of loss and inequality dealing with men, the masculine and the ‘world’ they have ‘created’ in general.
    So I think this is about taking back your personal power in so many ways and letting yourself shine, be heard, and be seen for who you are! Also not fearing men and not allowing yourself to believe that you are less-than or smaller or somehow incompetent and destined to be governed by them. It can also be about healing the inner relationship between your feminine and masculine selves and making sure that it is an equal, loving and mutually appreciative relationship of the highest level.
    We are all equals and in truth we are all androgynous as our Spirits take have no body. We have all incarnated as both genders here and sometimes in between. One gender is certainly not less-than the other,although this misbelief has been an issue that we deal with to this day.
    This issue is so pervasive and really coming up right now, so I’m not surprised to see it in my readings a lot. I just wanted to add this more general interpretation in case other ones aren’t fitting for anyone else.

      Don’t know how you know these things without meeting the person & just over the internet- but- it could not be more right on the mark (unfortunately). The last man in my life just passed away after a 15 yr relationship (that was part engagement but for various reasons didn’t lead to marriage). The 2 main long term relationships I’ve had were with either a physical abuser (when I was young) + the last-emotionally abusive, but he was by far the better of the two. An extremely generous ‘shirt-off-his-back’ giver. Yet had many emotional issues. Now, I long for a more ‘normal’ loving relationship but afraid I’ll attract another similar to my Dad. Not sure how to go about it, but I have a deep faith in God & pray He will guide me. God bless you.

        Hi Rebecca, thank you for commenting. Unfortunately, father issues are one of my major traumas, and I know first hand how much it can affect a person. I’m currently reading a book that has been a big help that I would like to recommend to you. I’ve read other books on father healing, but this one seems to be the best so far, and it’s by Doreen Virtue (creator of the cards we use in our online readings) …

    Thank you so much for this ~ I can so resonate…I do have father issues, always seek approval and feel small, unfulfilled, undeserving of the good that comes to me and if it comes i feel it will be taken away…and have been in a relationship where the man did not see my worth….now I know why I am stuck and hopefully will be able to release this to the Univers. Much love to you and yours ~<3~
