Our card for today, Friday, August 15th, is taken from the Magical Times Empowerment Cards by Jody Bergsma – Flexibility – “Gently flow through the turbulence. Life has the ability to shape you. Bend, Don’t Break.”
As we move through life, there are people and situations that have the ability to change our lives irrevocably, for better or worse. Things like meeting our soul mate, or the death of a loved one, or the loss of a job, the birth of a child, and so on and on. How these changes affect us is based on our perception of them.
Of course there are many things that happen to us that are positive, that will have a positive effect on us and our lives. But there are the negative, or not so positive, things that happen to us that can make us bitter not better. If we take a negative view, then of course it affects us in a negative way, but if we take a positive view of what happens, then we will take it in stride and allow it to change our lives for the better.
So we are being asked to go with the flow, to accept what life brings our way with grace and equanimity. Even the bad things that happen to us can still bring about positive change or at least the learning of a life lesson. We need to be like the willow in the wind, bend and not break. Remember it’s all about our perception of what happens, and if we can keep in mind that everything that happens to us happens for a reason, then we can put a positive spin on anything. Grieve a loss, yes, but then look for the silver lining inside that dark cloud.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
