Our card for the day, Friday, September 6th, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards – Renewal/Archangel Jeremiel # 20 – “Review and evaluate. A favorable assessment of the facts. Time to move in a new direction.”
Archangel Jeremiel is the angel who helps you evaluate your life so you can clearly decided upon appropriate changes. (taken from the Angel Tarot Cards guide book)
The number 20 represents – “Your connection with the Creator is strong and clear. God asks you to fill your heart and mind with faith. Your faith is being rewarded right now.” (taken from Angel Numbers 101 by Doreen Virtue)
There are many times in our lives when we have to take a step back and re-evaluate what has happened or what is happening to us. Some of those times could be the loss of a loved one, the end of a job or career, illness, the end of a relationship and so on. During these times we seem to be set adrift in stormy waters without an anchor. During these times most people rely on their faith in a higher power to see them through, or sometimes they blame that same higher power for what has happened to them. However what we need to remember is that often there is no blame, or fault, it’s just a fact of life on planet earth that things never remain the same, things are always going to change. Change is an inevitable part of life. How we deal with that change is up to us, and this is where a life review is often needed so that we can see what has worked for us and what hasn’t, what changes we need to make to deal with it, whatever it is.
Something else we need to remember is that everything that happens to us, without exception, is part of our life’s plan, or blueprint, that our soul wanted to experience while taking physical form on this earth. There really is a reason for everything we go through even though most times we really have no clue what that reason is. We can let change make us bitter or we can let it make us stronger. Remember God gives His greatest challenges to His strongest warriors. Remember too that every person in our life, whether that is family, or friends, or our boss, or just someone we meet for a brief time, is playing a part for us. We make many soul agreements or contracts before we come to this planet and we both or all agreed that this would happen this way or that way. Nothing is chance or a coincidence, nothing. It might seem to be, but I assure you it isn’t. Sometimes the agreement is a smile or a look, something small that impacts our lives in some mysterious way. Sometimes it’s something life altering.
When we need to take a step back and review or evaluate our lives, it helps to take into consideration that bigger picture, to change our perspective on what has happened. Sometimes what we have perceived as negative or bad is really a blessing in disguise. That reminds me of something I heard in a talk by Wayne Dyer: “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Something I read the other day talked about the existence of our soul, which is eternal and has existed long before time began and will continue to exist long after our life here is done. This life we are living is but a moment in the eternity of our soul. It also said to think of our lives here as a dream to our soul, it’s not even “real”, our lives here are only an illusion, a game. Even though when we experience loss that brings grief or pain in our lives, it doesn’t affect who we truly are as a soul. It’s like when we dream at night and, even though when we are in that dream it all seems pretty real and we experience fear, sadness, pain, love, happiness or joy,when we wake up, what happened in that dream disappears and no longer has any effect on us. That is the way our lives are viewed by our eternal soul.
Sometimes all we need is to keep in mind the bigger picture when something happens that turns our lives upside down. Look at it from a new perspective and notice how doing so can often move us in a new direction and bring about a favorable outcome. Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
