Our card for the day, Monday, May 27th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – Friendship – “Make a date for a play day with one or more friends.”
Sounds kind of silly and childish doesn’t it? However this card relates back to our card for Friday, May 17th, Playfulness. With that card the message was “Fun and play is the Angel’s way! They guide you to add fun to your life, and to know that fun is a necessity, not a luxury.” Our card for today however emphasizes that we play with one or more of our friends. Do you have a close friend or two that you like to spend time with and have fun? Having friends is a very important aspect of our journey here on earth. Often our friends in this life are souls we have spent many lifetimes with during our sojourns to this planet or maybe another. They are the family we have outside of our birth families. They are our confidants and often the ones who understand us better than even our birth families. With a friend we can be ourselves and know we are accepted for who we are. A friend is someone we call when we need to talk about something that is troubling us.
I would venture to say that very few of us on the Lightworker’s path have had many close friends. I know I haven’t. I have had many what I will call acquaintances but very few close friends. Always being different made it hard to make friends and it didn’t help that I changed schools 4 times during my school years. I started Grade 9 in a new school where pretty much everyone there had come up through the years together, so I was the new and different kid in my class. It pretty much remained that way till I graduated. Lucky for me I have 2 sisters who are very close to me in age, about a year apart, so they were my friends although they don’t share my beliefs and interests. For most of my life I have been a loner as I have said before. I have been lucky since the internet came on the scene to have made a few friends from different areas on the planet who believe in the same things I do and I do chat with them most everyday.
I have become housebound over the past 2 years. I had to give up work because of chronic pain from Osteo-arthritis and Fibromyalgia, work was my social outlet for many years. Now I spend more and more time sitting here at my computer and my inability to socialize like I used to has taken a toll on my relationships. But I continue to meet new people on different sites online who share the same ideas and beliefs and I consider myself very lucky to have met them. Just today I spent an hour talking to a new friend in Israel and earlier tonight I was talking to another new friend in India. What an amazing time we live in to be able to meet people from all walks of life and from all over the world. I am truly blessed!
So if you have a friend or two, why not make a date to spend some time together, go out for a meal or to a movie or whatever it is you like to do with your friend or friends. Remember it is so important to have fun and to be with others of like mind to share ideas and inspiration or do something that makes you happy. Have a great day everyone and stay blessed! ~Namaste~
