Card For Today

The Thinking Woman

Our card for today, Monday, April 23rd, is taken from the Energy Oracle Cards – The Thinking Woman – Female of Wisdom or Understanding

This card is asking us to be open to our own inner guidance in every situation we may find ourselves in. As Lightworkers most of us are also empathic by nature. This is a great resource when it comes to understanding the other person’s perspective in any given situation, it can also help us know if the person is being truthful and sincere with us. We sometimes get a “gut feeling” about something and we are being told to trust this. When our “spidey senses” go off telling us something just isn’t right, we need to pay attention and not just write it off as “it’s just my imagination”. If we pay attention to our guidance, we can save ourselves a lot of heartache and disappointment, and sometimes even prevent ourselves from being involved in a tragedy of some kind. But we have to be open and listening, and then ready to act on what we are getting and not just dismiss it.

In today’s world we are being bombarded by lots of information about what is going on in our world, not all of it is truth, and so we must use our own discernment to determine the validity of everything we see or hear. It is up to us to understand that we have the power within ourselves to know if something rings true or not for us. We can also take it upon ourselves to do some research of our own when we are unsure about anything and what we are “receiving” about it. In some cases it can be hard to tell because we may trust the source, but our inner guidance tells us something isn’t quite right. So then we do our own research and not just accept something at face value because so and so said it was true. In today’s world it is imperative to do our own thinking and use our own inner wisdom to uncover the truth.

Card For The Weekend

Inner Trust

Our card for the weekend, April 21st and 22nd, is taken from the Sacred Rebels Oracle – Inner Trust – “This oracle brings you the message that it is time for you to trust yourself and let the real, inner you out from behind the veil.”

We have been taught from a young age to hide who we truly are inside. We are told our emotions are inappropriate, we are told that what we believe is not the norm, we are told that the way we look isn’t acceptable for one reason or another. So many of us have lost our individuality all so that we can “fit in”, not stand out, and not be uniquely ourselves. We have conformed to what society deems as acceptable and normal. And yet deep inside every one of us lies a longing to drop the façade and be who we really are inside ourselves with all our quirkiness and deeply felt emotions. Everyone may have been created equal, but we are also all unique in our expression of the piece of the Creator that we are.

In trying to be like everyone else or to be liked by everyone, we have done a great disservice to ourselves and to the world. That is why the time has come when we must drop the pretense and be our true authentic selves. We all have unique talents and gifts that will be needed, that are needed now, by humanity as we move through this ascension process. Things are changing at a rapid rate and the changes are not stopping anytime soon. The more that happens, the less people feel in control of their own lives. Some people are literally losing their grip on reality and feel adrift on these stormy seas. That is why we must drop the veil and let our lights shine out into the darkness.

As Lightworkers we are also Lighthouses that are beacons of hope for those who are lost. As we remain centered inside ourselves and remain calm in the midst of chaos, many will look to us for guidance and for answers as to what is happening to our world. It is time to open ourselves up, trust our own inner guidance, and let our own inner knowing lead the way. We can do this, this is why we are here. This is the time when we are needed most and this is what we signed up for. Remember, we raised our hands when “the call” went out and said “I can do this!”, and because of our strength of spirit and our determination, we were chosen. Now it’s time to trust ourselves, step up and be who we really are. Let’s do this!

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

High Priestess of Spirit

Our card for today, Friday, April 20th, is taken from the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards – High Priestess of Spirit – “I am Nyx, Goddess of Night, and you have chosen this symbol to help guide you on this journey to find an answer to your question. Consider that there is an invisible spirit within all living things.”

Okay let’s begin this reading with something Gregg Braden said in a video I watched a couple of years ago. In it he was talking about the creator of all things, God. So if we agree that God is love and that He created all things, then it stands to reason that everything is of God and therefore everything is also love, no exceptions. So if we are facing something sad or terrible, then we also have to accept that no matter what it looks like, it’s still love. Make sense?

We can’t begin to know the reasons why some things happen to us or even to the world at large, but we must accept that there is a reason even if we don’t know, or may never know, what that reason is. I think it’s part of human nature to want answers, but sometimes we have to have faith and trust that there is a good reason for everything that happens. Nothing is ever by accident even though it may seem that way. So even though we may want an answer to our question, we have to accept we may not get one. Remember, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God”. (Romans 8:28)

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Three of Earth

Our card for today, Thursday, April 19th, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards – Three of Earth – “The power of creativity. Recognition for very high quality work. Be a “team player”.

I think we can all agree that we live in a time of great change. All we need do is look at what is happening on the world stage, whether that is politics, weather, or even just what is happening in our own part of the world. I follow a couple of Youtube channels that deal with strange weather changes, bizarre behavior of wildlife around the world, earthquakes and volcanoes, and so on. There is much that is happening and much that is difficult to wrap our minds around. We may wonder what is going on and what we can do. The most important thing we can do right now is not go into fear, which is hard to do at times, but we need to remember that there is a grand plan at work here and God does in fact know what He is doing. We are asked to have faith and trust that everything will work out for the good of all.

Next we are asked to use our own particular gifts and talents to help those around us who may be experiencing difficulties. For example if we live in an area where the power has gone out due to storms, if we know there are elderly people living in the neighborhood, it helps to check on them, make sure they have a way to stay warm and that they have food. This may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but to those we help it will mean a lot. And just imagine if everyone on the planet adopted this attitude of helping each other when times are tough, what a difference it would make to the world at large. I watched a video of a severe hail storm in the Middle East where they are not used to having hail, they live in the desert! The animals were dying because of being hit by the hail and people were out trying to get as many animals, including camels, to safety. Many still died because they couldn’t save them all, but it was a team effort to save what they could. So there is no excuse for not doing anything in difficult situations, if we can help one person or animal, then we are contributing to the greater good.

So even though we may feel small and helpless in times of crisis, there is always something we can do, even if it doesn’t seem like much to us at the time. We are being asked to remember that we are part of a greater community now and to remember that we are all in this together. In case anyone has forgotten, we are going through the ascension process and no one said this was going to be easy. We are experiencing the birthing process as a collective and birth can be messy and painful. We just need to remember this and to keep shining our light in the darkness to help others who are unaware of what is happening find their way home too.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Traveling Lightly

Our card for today, Wednesday, April 18th, is taken from the Sacred Traveler Oracle Cards by Denise Linn – Traveling Lightly – “Simplify your life; otherwise it’s difficult to hear the voice of the Creator.”

We are pretty much raised to be consumers from the moment we are born on this earth. We need to work to make money so we can buy “stuff”. So by saying that, let’s put aside the fact that most of us need to make money just to survive in today’s world. It takes money to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table, and the many other necessities that we require to live. Okay now we have done that, let’s look at all the other stuff we tend to acquire that is not a necessity. I’m as guilty of it as anyone else, believe me.

Part of the reason we do this is because we believe that if we buy this or that thing it will make us happy. That’s what they show us in advertising isn’t it? If we just have that thing we will be happy, but it’s a lie. We might be happy for a short time, but then the novelty wears off and we are looking for the next thing that might make us happy. And so we keep accumulating more and more stuff. Then there is the need to replace our gadgets with the newest and best we can afford. Basically whenever we buy a piece of technology nowadays, whether that is a cell phone, a tablet, a computer, a TV, or a car, it’s already being replaced in the market by something newer and better, or faster, or sleeker, or has a better camera, or whatever. The list goes on. And so now we have to have that newer thing because now that will make us happy.

So where does it all end? It ends with us. For those of us who are older and have been at this for a while, we know that the claims of most advertising is false. We have spent a lot of money acquiring our “stuff” and we are not any happier than we were before we got it. This is telling us that we don’t even need most of this stuff we have. Lately I have been trying to follow this rule, if I buy something like a new shirt, then I have to give to charity one I already have. Same goes for most things I buy that are not necessities. I am also keeping track of things I already have in a similar way so that if I have not used or worn it in a year, then I give it away. This way I get rid of all the stuff that I don’t really need. Nice to have, yes, need it, no. With less stuff there is also less maintenance involved, less to clean, less to deal with. More time for doing what makes me truly happy.

This not only goes for acquiring things we don’t really need, but also includes things we do that are not really necessary either. So many people like to be busy busy busy, running here and there, involved in this activity or another, and that’s fine if it makes you happy. But, with all this busy-ness, where is the time to relax, or to spend in prayer or meditation? It all comes down to what is truly important to us, things like spending time with our loved ones, spending our money on things that truly will make us happy or are necessary, instead of just buying more “stuff”, spending time in nature, and spending time with God. It’s time to think about what is truly important to us and then simplify our lives accordingly.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Yin

Our card for today, Tuesday, April 17th, is taken from the Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards – Yin – Essential Meanings: The feminine principle of receptivity; letting someone else make the first move; gathering information and taking in cues; the art of conscious allowing.

How often in our lives have we been told that to be successful in anything we have to make it happen, we have to go after it, or we have to work hard for it. Now this card is telling us to stop and wait, to listen to our inner guidance, to look for the signs and synchronicities, and to recognize and be ready for the answer to our prayers when it arrives. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is wait when we want to get out there and take control to make it happen. Trust me, patience is a life lesson I am here to learn! However right now instead of fighting for whatever it is we want, we are being asked to stop and just be patient, allowing things to unfold as they are meant to and not as we would have them to.

Sometimes the answer to our prayers depends on timing, or what I like to call the Divine Right Time. We may want it NOW but sometimes God asks us to wait a little while until the timing for the answer to our prayer is just right, and He alone knows when that is. We can fight against the waiting and try to make things happen on our own, but most often all we do is push what we are longing for further away instead of bringing it closer. That does not mean that we sit and twiddle our thumbs while we wait, we are now expected to work on ourselves. That means becoming the best version of ourselves that we can be. This may require some reflection, some inner work, to know exactly what that is, but it is not time wasted, it is time well spent in making ourselves ready so that we will recognize and accept the answer when it arrives.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Youre_Being_Helped

Our card for today, Tuesday, February 13th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – You’re Being Helped – “Heaven is working behind the scenes to help you, even if you don’t see results yet.”

There may be times when we face challenges in life. These challenges may be financial, relationships, painful situations, etc. We may feel during these times that God or the Universe has forsaken us, or we may ask “Why me??” However as this card is telling us, we are never without help and we are never alone when we face these challenges. As I was reading in “Mornings with the Lord” by Doreen Virtue yesterday, the Holy Spirit is always with us and is praying to God for us even if we are unable to pray ourselves.

It is easy to feel lost or alone or overwhelmed in today’s busy world, but we are assured that this is never the case, that we are surrounded by love and guidance and help whenever we need it. However we must not lose hope or faith if it seems as if we have been abandoned or left to fend for ourselves. Sometimes the answers or solutions can take a little time to manifest but that doesn’t mean they are not on the way. We are asked to hold the faith and not give up hope. Help is on the way!

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
