Our card for today, Saturday, February 22nd, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine – Four Of Water – “Missing an opportunity. Discontentment or boredom. Open your eyes to the possibilities.”
The Suit of Water represents the depth of our emotions, it’s where we fall in love, nurture our children, and open our hearts to deep feelings. Water also represents love, romance, relationships, family, dreams, and desires. (Angel Tarot Cards guidebook)
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)
Sometimes we are so focused on what we don’t have that we fail to see what we do have already, the things we take for granted. When we are looking to get something in particular, we become so focused or “goal oriented” on that one specific thing that we become lost in that place of lack. We think how much better our life will be if we just had that, whatever that is. What we are missing here is that we already have so much and yet we are still not happy or content. What makes us think that getting this one thing more will bring to us the happiness that we seek?
Most of us already know that when we do acquire this one thing, the happiness it gives is fleeting and then we are looking for something else that will bring us the happiness that we seek. It’s a never ending cycle of acquiring more and more things in the hope that this thing or the next thing will make us happy. This in fact is seeking for what we want outside of ourselves when what we seek is not more material things but true happiness and that can only be found in side ourselves. We often equate wealth with happiness but some of the richest people in the world are also the unhappiest.
The wisest course of action is to be happy and content with what we already have instead of being focused on the one thing we think will make our lives worth living. I don’t mean material things here, I’m talking about the people we have in our lives, and our pets, the love we receive from and give to those we love is worth more than all the gold in this world. It’s more important to focus on the people in our lives than on the possessions we have acquired. Things come and go, they get lost, or break down, or the novelty wears off, but the people, and the pets, we share our lives with, and the love we share with them, will last long after this lifetime is over. What truly matters is the love we shared with those around us, not what we have accumulated in this life.
Now I’m going to focus on the Law of Attraction for a moment because as I was shuffling the deck one card jumped out. That card was – # 3 The Empress/Archangel Gabriel – “Lavish abundance. Give birth to your dreams. Nurture yourself and others.”
Archangel Gabriel is the messenger angel who guides and supports expectant and adoptive parents – as well as those involved in “newborn” creative projects. Call upon Gabriel to inspire your creative ideas and give you the courage and the opportunities to express them. (Angel Tarot Cards guidebook)
The number 3 represents: “The ascended masters are helping you – usually this means an ascended master you feel close to – for example, Jesus, Quan Yin, a saint, or some other spiritual/religious figure.” (Angel Numbers 101)
This card is about abundance, manifesting our dreams and taking care of ourselves and others. This is a reminder that as we show gratitude for all that we have in our lives already, the people, and even the things, the more the universe will give us to be grateful for. If we are happy with what we now have in our possession in the form of material things, the universe will want to give us more of the things that make us happy. The more we are thankful for the love we already have in our lives, and the more love we give to those people in our lives right now, the more love we attract to us. In the end we will find that it was not what we acquired in this life, but the love we shared was what mattered most.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
