Card of the Day-20 June 2017

Card of the Day
Whale (Breach) Reversed 🐳

What a great card for today as I return from a social media break. We all have moments where for our own good and sanity we must step away from the computer, turn off our IMG_20170620_033922_189phones, and spend time with loved ones, with ourselves, and in nature. Life becomes so hectic that we lose touch with our own spirit. Constantly are we bombarded with external energies, ideas, beliefs, and/or concepts that we literally can feel as if we are being swept out to sea. If you have noticed feeling this way, take time away from social media to really disconnect with the world and instead reconnect to your spirit. You may learn things you never even realized you didn’t know. I had this experience after struggling with an issue for 5 years! 5 years!
Breaks are good and vital. When its time to return, you will do so feeling much better, inspired, grounded and centered. Almost like a new person.

Card of the Day-5 June 2017

Today’s Card of the Day is the Ace of Cups reversed with two other cards to clarify: The Star and Queen of Disks (Pentacles). IMG_20170605_044624

We want to heal the world and certainly could agree that it is in need of it. Every day we are bombarded by images and stories of destruction, fear, hate, ignorance, and intolerance. This is unbearable, especially for an empath or healer. We want to spread light into the world. We want to help. However, we can’t spread anything from an empty cup which is bound to happen when we allow ourselves to become drained. We invest so much of our time and energy into these stories and our mission that we forget we must care for ourselves as well. It’s only practical. Before we can share our light, we must be in control of our bodies and selves. Take time to refill your own heart with light. Do something that brings you joy. Go for a walk, paint, dance, play with a pet. Anything to recharge your own heart chakra so that you may be the luminous healer and lightbearer you were meant to be.

This is going to perhaps be the running theme for a bit as this certainly isn’t a quick fix sort of issue. So how can we possibly hope to accomplish this besides fueling our own IMG_20170605_045902joy? I pulled an oracle card for guidance and had one jump out as well. The meaning was more than spot on and I almost gasped when I saw it because duh, why didn’t I think of that?! The actual card pulled actually had me laughing because it took me a moment. So, the card pulled was Full Moon (Completion) which confused me because I didn’t get the completion part. I realized this card was being literal and referring to the Full Moon which is on the 9th. It’s a time to set intentions, release what is no longer serving us, and do manifestation magick. The jumper was Rainbow (Blessings). We can recharge ourselves by counting our blessings each and every day since gratitude raises our vibrations. However, it would seem that this Full Moon is particularly important to do so.

Be grateful for what is right and good in the world, set some intentions, recharge yourself, do some TLC, ignite your passions so that you may spread more light into this world so that we may be healed and whole again.

Card of the Day-30 May 2017

We’re being guided to finally release all that we’ve been clinging to these past several years. Most of us have the tendency of holding onto the heartache, pain, and betrayal that naturally occurs whenever someone acts against us. Once we’re slighted, we shut down and cut them off. Instead of effectively communicating in an attempt to resolve these issues, we ignore them or may even blow them out of proportion. Are there some 20170530_011508instances in which our anger is appropriate. Yes, but you must release that pain. Forgive. Not for them but for you, Honey. In the words of Tony Robbins, “Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.”

Does this mean that you forget and must return to your prior friendship? Hell no! It means loving yourself enough to say “This isn’t my shit and isn’t going to continue plaguing me! I deserve peace, dammit!” The person may not be sorry but that’s okay. Forgiveness doesn’t equal a return. It equals peace. You deserve that higher level of serenity.

Take some time today to breathe and meditate on all (or one at a time of) the transgressions against you. Allow yourself to feel all the pain, betrayal, anger, annoyance, etc. then allow yourself to forgive. If you feel the need to invoke help, do so. Call upon your personal view of Deity, any angels (Raphael would be appropriate), ancestors, etc. Ask for their help and it shall be.

You may even want to forgive yourself for things you hold against yourself. For this I always go one by one and picture the very moment it happened. I see myself as a detached bystander who is merely watching. As the scene plays out before me, I send love to my past self with the intention of forgiveness. I pour love into myself and when I come out of the meditation, I always feel astoundingly better!

Forgiveness isn’t easy in the slightest but it’s necessary if we are to continue growing and moving forward. Don’t allow yourself to become trapped within the past when it’s as simple as a short, “I forgive you.”.

My affirmation: I forgive other’s transgressions against me and release that energy.
Likewise, I ask forgiveness from wrongs I’ve done to others–intentionally or not.

Card of the Day

Card of the Day
Island (Solitude)

This is a gentle reminder from Spirit that you must take time out of the day where you can shove everything aside and focus on you. Seek some alone time. I find this especially important right now as we are constantly bombarded by negativity in the news, our lives, and on social media. Today, take some time throughout your day in which you purposely focus on yourself. Check into how your feeling. What energy is sticking around that isn’t yours? Breathe and just be. Embrace the stillness. Meditate. It’s all about self-care and acts of self-love.
