Our card for the day, Sunday, November 17th, is taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine – Four of Raphael – “Seek out other possibilities. Look for the magic in life. Be aware of your own emotions.”
The Suit of Raphael represents falling in love, getting married, and having children. It also represents our dreams, hopes, and deep desires, as well as the development and expression of psychic abilities and intuition.
The number 4 represents: “The angels are with you. They send you the number 4 to reassure you that they’ve heard your prayers and are helping you.” (Angel Numbers 101)
When it seems our world is falling apart, we have lost our job, or our home, or both, or whatever other changes any one of us may be experiencing, we should not give up hope, but rather look for other possibilities. Just a little while ago I was watching a video on some of the changes people are experiencing at this time, and the person speaking was saying how, in spite of major setbacks in their lives, people were coping very well. For example, some are returning to live with their parents or other members of their family, some are learning to grow their own food or getting to know farmers in their area, some are exploring making a living in other ways, like selling crafts, or using other skills that were not part of the job they had to leave.
When bad things happen, we often feel betrayed, “why did this happen to me?”, and we get depressed and filled with anxiety for the future. However the more time we spend in these negative emotions, the more of that we draw to us. We really do need to be aware of what we are putting out into the universe. Remember this is a vibrational universe and it is responding to our thoughts and feelings. We really need to not let life get us down! As much as possible, we need to find joy in the little things and be grateful for all the good we still have in our lives instead of focusing on what we have lost. Being in the “attitude of gratitude” keeps good things coming to us or more to be grateful for. The universe will in effect say “You think that was good, just wait till you see what’s coming next!” Another quote I like is “Always believe something wonderful is going to happen”. We really do need to be like children and believe in the magic and wonder of life!
If God is taking care of the flowers of the field and the birds in the sky, how much more is He going to do for us? We need to believe that we will be taken care of, just as we need to believe that we are the creators of our own destiny. This is where our faith and trust comes in. I have learned to trust that I am being taken care of because things have a way of coming to me just when I need it. Whatever it is that I need, a job, money, food, etc. comes to me right on time, it hasn’t failed yet. I am no more or less than you so there is no reason why the same can’t happen for you. So believe in magic and miracles because both abound all around us. You just have to believe! Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
