Card of the Day
3 Swords Reversed
Today the focus is on love and forgiveness. Love is the highest vibration and the frequency through which we connect to Spirit and the Divine more readily and with ease. It may be difficult, and you may have reason, but allow yourself to forgive others. When we hold grudges and anger we don’t leave much room for love to enter into our lives and hearts. Our vibrations lower. Instead forgive them. If you can’t do it for them then please, do it because you love yourself. As Buddha said, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, pain and love, that we must learn to grow instead of remaining stagnant.
Wait, what does this have to do with love? Love is the vibration we should aspire to, radiating forth from our being and into this world that is in much need of it. This doesn’t mean that state of being is possible at every moment. We are human after all. This is where forgiveness comes in. As I said, we’re human which means we’re prone to fallacies, mistakes, and just plain old screw ups. Just as important as it is for us to apologize, we likewise need to forgive. Don’t forget: forgiveness isn’t forgetting. You can forgive someone and never trust them again. My pawpaw has this saying he picked up somewhere that I’ve heard countless times, “Love their soul but hate their ways.” We should love everyone but that doesn’t mean we have to like them. We’re all companions on the same journey, we’re all spirits having a human experience, and we all contain sparks of the Divine. By realizing we come from the same source but have different lessons to learn does make it easier to love everyone as your fellow brothers and sisters while not necessarily agreeing with them.
Forgive those who have wronged you so that you may heal and instead raise yourself to the pure vibration of love. Love everyone—even if you don’t like them. Share your love with the world. Do something that brightens up each day. Help others. You can still fight injustice with love in your heart. When we can radiate this unconditional love, life becomes a joyous celebration of all that is.
(I hope this makes sense. The words were just evading me this morning as I couldn’t find exactly how to articulate what it was the card was telling me.)
