Our card for today, Thursday, July 17th, is taken from the Conscious Spirit Oracle Deck by Kim Dreyer – Balance – “I understand and embrace the opposing forces in life that bring about balance.”
We all need balance in our lives or else we become out of balance, which can lead to illness, both mental and physical. If we work too much, we burn out. If we eat too much, we gain weight. If we drink too much, we get drunk. If we don’t rest enough, we are tired. If we don’t get enough exercise, our muscles become weak. You get the idea. Everything in moderation helps keep our bodies in balance and in good health.
How would we know joy if we had never known sorrow? How would we know light if we had not known darkness? How would we know abundance if we had not experienced lack? Again you get the idea. On this plane of existence, everything has an opposite, and that is known as duality in this dimension. Where there is up, there is also down. Where there is hope, there is also despair. Where there is peace, there is also war. Where there is life, there is also death. There is goodness on this planet but there is also evil.
Where we have come from, the other side, there is only love, joy, peace, abundance, and every good thing we can imagine. One of the reasons we come to this dimension to experience a physical life is to also experience duality. When we live in a place where everything we desire is ours, how can we know what it is like to not have our every wish granted? So we come here to experience the opposite of joy, and the opposite of abundance, and the opposite of vibrant good health.
Most of us are old souls, meaning we have been to this planet many many times. We have had every experience imaginable on this planet. We have been male and female, we have been young and old, and we have been black and white, and every color in between. We have been the victim and the abuser, we have been the king and the peasant. We have been heterosexual and gay/lesbian. We have been the killer and we have been killed. We have stood in the darkness and we have stood in the light. We have been the lowest of the low and the highest of the high. There is nothing we have not experienced.
We all have light and darkness within us, and yet most of us who consider ourselves Lightworkers don’t acknowledge our shadow side. We are afraid of our darker emotions, like anger and hatred, or we deny them. We try everything we can think of to not let that part of us be expressed. However when we do so, we are out of balance. We have to acknowledge and express all of our emotions or we are out of balance within ourselves. That doesn’t mean we go out and kill someone.
We are going through a lot of cleansing and purging on this planet, not just those of us on the “spiritual path”, but all of humanity. The increased light on our planet is bringing up all these negative emotions in everyone to be healed and released. Denying our emotions isn’t helping this process. We have to allow ourselves to feel whatever emotion that comes up, let it wash over us, acknowledge what we are feeling and then let it go. Stuffing it down and pretending that it doesn’t exist within us will only mean that we will have to deal with it again later and perhaps in a more intense fashion.
We need to acknowledge that we all have darkness within us. It’s how we channel that energy that makes or breaks us. Negative emotions can be the impetus for change in our lives. Negative emotions are often triggered by something someone has said or done to us, meaning something pushed our buttons to bring out that emotion. It’s a learning experience to find within ourselves those things that we still carry within us that need to be healed. That can only be done if we first acknowledge whatever it is we are feeling.
Once we acknowledge our emotions, then we can root out the cause. In doing so we then create greater balance within ourselves and within the world at large. Remember what plays out on the world stage is a reflection of our own inner being. As we allow ourselves to acknowledge our darker emotions, feel them, and then find the cause so it can be healed and released, we will then become more at peace. That same peace will manifest on a global level to reflect that. So we need to embrace the opposing forces inside us and understand that acknowledging them will help create balance in our lives.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
