Our card for today, Monday, December 8th, is taken from the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards – 10 Love – “My child, my wondrous one, it is time to celebrate because love is calling to you to open your heart and receive my blessings.”
10 represents – “God wants you to hold positive thoughts about this situation, as everything is working out for your highest good. Call upon God to help you stay optimistic, as your thoughts are an influencing factor in the outcome.” (Angel Numbers 101)
This card asks us to be the Love that we are, to live as beings of Love and Light. Love is all around us, it is in everything because Love is all there is. It doesn’t matter what it looks like on the outside, in our outer reality, everything is Love because God is Love and God is in everything, every person, every form of matter and energy. What doesn’t look like Love is actually fear, fear of loving and fear of being loved, because the opposite of Love isn’t hate, its fear.
So many fear Love. We can fear love because all we have known in our lives is that Love hurts. We give ourselves to another in Love and then Love ends and the person we Love leaves us. We believe we are not worthy of Love, that we are lacking something that makes us unlovable and so we blame ourselves when Love leaves. When this happens it makes it harder and harder for us to trust Love. How can we know that if we give ourselves over to Love that it won’t betray us again? We don’t know, there is no way to know for certain that if we give our heart to someone that the person we give it to won’t leave us. However remember that saying: “Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all” – from “In Memoriam” by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Some would say that it would be better to not know the pain of Love lost but try to imagine our lives if we had never known Love, the beauty, the intensity and the power of love? What a loss that would be. Yes it hurts when we lose the person we Love, but the heart does heal, life goes on and we will find Love again. However for us to draw to us the Love we so desire, lasting and true Love, we must first learn to give ourselves that Love because we can’t give Love to another if we don’t first Love ourselves. Then when we know what it is to Love ourselves, to give to ourselves that Love we desire from another, then and only then can we draw to us the person who will Love us for all that we are, the good, the bad and everything in between.
We must first learn to give Love before we can begin to receive Love. When we are being the Love we are, the Love we were created to be, we are giving of that Love to all things and as we give Love, we attract Love to us. When we are living Love, then Love is what we will experience in our lives in abundance. Then when we least expect it, our true Love will manifest into our reality. So let’s open our hearts and live the Love of our beings, let’s give Love to everyone we meet, let’s be God’s Love in this world, and then watch what happens in our own lives.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
