Our card for the day, Wednesday, July 3rd, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards – Eight of Air – “An illusion of being trapped. A lack of self-confidence. Afraid to take action.”
– The suit of Air represents our intellect, it’s where we make decisions, analyze situations and give voice to our thoughts.
– The number 8 represents abundance and prosperity. The endless loops in this number signify an infinite flow of money, time, ideas, or whatever else you require (especially for your life purpose). (Taken from Angel Numbers 101 by Doreen Virtue)
How many of us are trapped by our own vision of ourselves? How many of us feel that we are not pretty or handsome enough, or that we are not smart enough, or that we are not good enough in some way or other?
When we think this way we sabotage our own efforts and our ability to draw to us the good things that the universe or God wants to give us. We have adopted as our truth everything anyone has ever said to us from the time we are old enough to remember the things people said.
For some it begins early in our lives as parents or siblings or teachers or other people we looked up to or associated with started saying things to us, whether in a moment of anger, or even as a joke. With enough repetition whatever was said becomes part of our own inner dialog about ourselves.
For some of us it was part of dysfunctional relationships where our partner or spouse told us we were ugly, or stupid, or fat, or some other negative adjective used to describe us. Again, repeated often enough it becomes part of our inner dialog. It has created a lack of self-confidence in ourselves and our abilities to be successful or to even find love. So we have adopted these misconceptions about ourselves and we make decisions and live our lives accordingly.
This card is telling us that our prisons are self-imposed. The only thing that keeps us trapped is our belief in all that has been said to us or about us that was negative in any way. Now is the time to let go of these false beliefs. We are all beautiful beings of light and we come in all shapes and sizes and colors. We are all so much more than our physical bodies. We all have gifts that are unique to us. We are all intelligent and limitless in our ability to create our realities, our lives.
The only thing that limits us is our own thoughts about ourselves. We can’t draw to us the love we seek or the success we want while our thoughts are not in alignment with that which we seek. And many times we don’t even try to find that love or that success because of how we feel about ourselves. It is time to shake off these false beliefs and stand in our own power and in our own beauty. We need to look in the mirror and tell that person looking back at us how handsome or pretty s/he is. It is time to begin telling ourselves how intelligent we are, how powerful we are, and BELIEVE it because we are! It’s time to break down the walls of that prison and stand in our own beingness. When we can do that, all that we long for will come to us. Until we can do that, we will remain in our illusory prisons. Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
