Our card for today, Monday, April 21st, is taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards – Ace of Raphael – “A positive, new emotional experience. Fulfilling romantic relationships. Deep and lasting spiritual insights.”
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. Archangel Raphael has a history of heralding love and important relationships in people’s lives. (taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards guidebook)
The number 1 represents: “Stay positive. Everything you are thinking about right now is coming true, so be sure that you’re only thinking about what you desire. Give any fears to God and the angels.” (Angel Numbers 101)
Most of us have grown up believing love hurts. We have witnessed our parents getting divorced or we had friends whose parents were divorced, we are divorced from our own partners or have friends who are divorced. We suffered heartbreak when we lost the boys/men we fell “in love” with and then those relationships ended. We have learned to guard our hearts from getting broken again. Most of us are afraid to let anyone in, let anyone get too close, because the possibility exists that the relationship will end and we will be hurt again. It then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because we constantly live in fear of the love we have found being taken away yet again. We have learned that relationships don’t last, that there is no such thing as true, everlasting love except in fairy tales. That is the society most of us have grown up in and still live in.
However it is time now to break this cycle of love found and lost again. It is time to open our hearts to the love we are and the love we feel, and break down the walls that keep us from fully committing to anyone for fear of losing them. As long as we live in this vibration of fear around love we will always attract to us partners that will leave us. Remember that our vibrations are drawing to us what we expect, where our thoughts are focused. If every time we meet someone we automatically put the walls up around our heart, then we have already set the stage for what will come down the road. We often think thoughts that go something like this, “he/she won’t stay”, “he/she doesn’t really love me”, he/she is so wonderful I don’t deserve him/her”, “if only I was prettier, thinner, smarter, then they would love me”. I’m sure you can think of other things to add to this too. Most of us are guilty of it.
So now it’s time to become aware of what we think and speak of when we talk about love and romance. We are only ever going to attract the perfect partner, the one who will love us in spite of ourselves, the one who will stay, when we change our thinking about love. We can’t draw into our physical experience that which is not in alignment with our vibration. So if we want to experience true and lasting love then we must focus our thoughts and words on true and lasting love. It really is that simple. We are the only ones who can change our perspective when it comes to love. We are the only ones who can create the love we long for. It is not ours to worry about if this person we long for exists, our “job” is to look around and see the traits and characteristics that we would like to have in our own mate or companion. As Abraham says in The Law of Attraction, “Truly, the perfect role model for you, regarding any subject, does not exist – you are the creator of that.”
In the movie Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock, her younger self hopes she will never fall in love so that she will never die of a broken heart. So she decides to cast a true love spell believing that this man she is creating doesn’t exist. This is her spell: “He will hear my call a mile away, he will whistle my favourite song, he can ride a pony backwards, he can flip pancakes in the air, he will be marvelously kind, and his favourite shape will be a star. And he’ll have one green eye, one blue.” And what happens in the movie? This man shows up for her! So create away because again the only limit we have is the limit we place on ourselves. As we decide what it is we want in a relationship, and as we keep our focus on that, and live in expectation of it’s arrival, it will come!
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
