Card of the Day-11 July 2017

This past full moon was a wonderful opportunity to reflect and take an honest look at what was no longer serving us so that we may release it in order to continue forward on 20170711_100243-1our paths and in our lives. We set goals and intentions that we hope to accomplish within the next few months which wouldn’t be necessarily as easy to accomplish should we have continued carrying that heavy load we were still carrying from the past.

As the work week begins and we start getting back into the humdrum of daily tasks and whatnot, we’re being gently reminded to reflect on our goals, our reasoning behind why we want them, and what we must bring into our lives to achieve them. We may find ourselves grumbling about how hard this is going to be or even doubting ourselves—thus wanting to return to the very things we released since that is what we are comfortable with. While this might be tempting, it isn’t the way. Reflect on what root issue is making you feel this way and how instead you can work to shift that mindset. Also, remind yourself of your goals, your reason why, and your plan. How are you going to do this? That way, when those self-doubting thoughts do arise, you can easily combat them because you CAN do this because you have a plan!

Our egos like to bite at us, belittling and scaring us. Meanwhile, our spirit is what gently supports and reminds us that we deserve all the abundance, happiness, and love in the world. We can do anything if we truly have the will and the desire. Just know, if it’s for your highest good then it will manifest.

So, just take some time and really reflect. Yesterday may have been an emotional day in which we got deep into our heart chakras and allowed our emotions to run a bit more freely than normal. Now is time to get back into our minds a bit. It is only through the unification and balance of mind and heart, ego and spirit, that we are able to achieve our goals, dreams, and desires.

 

Blessed Be.

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.)

Card of the Day-3 April 2017

Card of the Day

The Ice Queen (Reversed)
Everything in the Universe comes from Spirit. The land, the air, our inspirations, etc. However, it is through illusion that we begin to think it is solely from the toils of our own labor as to why we have what we’ve been blessed with. Is it really? Through this illusion we become separated and distant from Spirit. Try to pay mind today to all the blessings of your life and recognize that they stem from Spirit. Be grateful. Say thank you. A simple way to do this is with a prayer of thanks over your food before you eat. It doesn’t have to be long or fancy. Merely saying thank you so long as you mean it and feel it within your heart goes a long way. 

With that being said, I am thankful for all you wonderful people who take your time to read my posts. Thank you!

Ceremony (Invocation)
Today’s message is short and simple–take time to connect with Spirit, whatever that means to you. We’re all connected and a part of Spirit but sometimes we forget and feel isolated. Invoke Spirit/God/Goddess/The Universe/Etc. It’ll be worth it! 🙂

Card of the Day

The High Lady of Love and Compassion (Reversed)

Pause and take a look at the motives and intentions behind your actions. Are they being fueled by love (by Spirit) or instead by Ego? Sometimes its difficult to discern which is which but with a little introspection and a good dose of honesty, we can uncover the truth. Perhaps you aren’t being as kind to others or yourself as you ought to be. Perhaps you are being too kind which can be just as bad. We must search for that delicate balance between being kind and compassionate and being able to say no. So I implore you to take a step back and analyze what position you are coming from and remember you can shift that.  Just be gentle towards yourself and others–nurture, not coddle. ❤

Card of the Day–20 Nov 2016

20161120_100912-1Everything is connected and a part of Spirit. When we fail to recognize this do we feel separated, lost, or even questioning and through this separation do we begin feeling anger, bitterness, resentment, etc. However, if we recall this interconnectedness then that illusion of being separate lifts.The highest vibration is love which connects us to Spirit completely. Love for ourselves, our friends, family, fellow country (world)men, nature, and  Mother Gaia.

In the U.S. right now there is a giant rift that has divided people since the election and its easy getting caught up in differences and opinions and while we must continue fighting against hate, we must also love our countrymen as they too are from Spirit. It’s like my grandpa used to always say, “Love their spirit but hate their ways”. I know how difficult this is as I’ve had friendships end during this election season, arguments have erupted, and nothing is worse–or as far from Spirit and Love–than acting righteously. Act from a place of love for All-That-Is instead of our of fear, hate, or anger. This also includes to yourself.
