Our card for today, Monday, September 15th, is taken from the Healing With The Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue – Vacation – “You need a break from routines and stressful situations. This card urges you to take time for yourself so that you can rest and renew.”
We all can feel stressed and/or bored with our routines. For many of us it is run, run, run from sunrise to sunset, and sometimes far into the night. We don’t know what it is to relax, to take a break and just do something that brings us joy, or even just to feel peace for a moment. So this card is here to tell us that if we don’t take time out of our busy schedules to take care of ourselves, we are going to burn out, and then we won’t be of any use to anyone, not even ourselves.
Sometimes we think it’s selfish to take time out for long bubble bath, or a walk in the park, or to just sit and read a good book. We have been taught that we need to be helping others, we need to be useful and productive. We need to provide for ourselves and for our families. And so we go, go, go with little regard for what this kind of lifestyle is doing to us. We can’t give to others in the way of service if our own takes are running on empty.
If we take the time to pamper ourselves just a little, then we will have more to offer the world, our jobs, our families and yes, even ourselves. So be a little selfish and take that time to do something nice for ourselves. It’s what we need so that we can then, in turn, give back to the world.
Affirmation: I give myself permission to regularly rest and relax, knowing that by being revitalized, I am happier and more productive. (Healing With The Fairies Oracle Cards Guidebook)
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
