Our card for today, Thursday, May 22nd, is taken from The Psychic Tarot for the Heart Oracle Deck – # 4 Open Up – Keywords: Withdrawal, blocks, control and release.
4 symbolizes: Dependability, sincerity, honesty, patience, integrity, structure, stagnation, repressive, and limitation. (The Psychic Tarot for the Heart Guidebook)
The red border symbolizes: passion, romantic love, enthusiasm, boldness, vitality, power, confidence, courage, and anger. Red is associated with the Base Chakra. (The Psychic Tarot for the Heart Guidebook)
Many if not all of us have been hurt by love in this lifetime. Often after we have been hurt we tend to put up walls, barriers against ever being hurt again. However when we have blocked ourselves off from caring too deeply again, we miss out on a lot of the love we could be receiving in our lives. When we are afraid of losing love, we don’t just block our hearts from romantic encounters, we also block our hearts from any form of love. We tend to hold ourselves apart, or from getting too emotionally involved with anyone, even friends and family as well as romantic partners, because we know the pain of love given and received and then lost. We are afraid of losing the people we love the most.
However this withdrawal from emotional entanglement also has the added effect of keeping us from manifesting our heart’s deepest desires. For example, how can the Universe bring to us our soul mate if we have closed ourselves off from love? How can we be open to giving or receiving love from someone if we are continually afraid of being hurt? There is a certain amount of risk involved when it comes to affairs of the heart and we are all well aware of that. At some point we will have to open our hearts and our energy fields to allow love to flow through us, out into the world, and return to us again. We will never find the love we seek as long as we have barriers around our hearts.
So perhaps it’s time to let those walls down and let ourselves feel emotions that we have long kept buried. Just maybe while our defenses down, true love will find its way into our hearts, dissolving all the barriers we have hidden ourselves behind, setting us free to give and receive the love we have always longed for.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
