Our card for today, Thursday, January 15th, 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 is asking us to open our hearts and let our love flow freely, without restrictions or conditions. This includes our love for our significant other, our families, our friends, our pets, and even our love of life itself. Sometimes in this world of cruelty and hatred, it can be very hard to walk through life with an open heart. This is especially true for those who are empathic. If we feel what others feel, sometimes this can take a huge toll on us, on our emotions, on our beliefs, on the way we view each other and our world.
However we are all born of love, the love that is our Creator, the Source of all that is. Love is who we were born to be and who we are, even if at times it doesn’t feel like it. It is in those times when we are asked to open our hearts all the wider instead of putting up walls and barricades to keep love out, or to stop ourselves from feeling too much. Yes we have all been hurt but it wasn’t love that caused our pain, it was fear. We all carry within us this innate fear of being hurt, of losing love, of being abandoned, and of being unworthy of the very love we so long for.
As long as we go through life with our hearts closed and wearing the armor of protection against being hurt, we will never find the love we seek. The love we long for requires us to take a chance, to risk it all, to be brave enough to grab hold of love and give it all we’ve got. There is no safety in true love, but there is this great and glorious spiritual connection with another that can only be experienced once we have knocked down our walls and stripped ourselves of our armor, so that we are completely vulnerable and open. Then and only then can true love enter into our hearts and souls, bringing with it the freedom we have sought for so long.
True love allows us to be free to be our authentic selves, who we truly are at our core. True love assures us that we can speak our truth and be completely ourselves, and be accepted and loved for all that we are. Anything else is not true love. True love is not something to be afraid of, and even though we may be faced with challenges and obstacles to overcome, true love does conquer all. We will be taken to the depths of our being and in the depths, love will set us free.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
