Card For Today

Reward Yourself

Our card for today, Friday, June 5th, is taken from the Daily Guidance from your Angels Oracle Cards – Reward Yourself – “You’ve been giving a lot of yourself lately, and it’s time for you to receive. Make the time to reward yourself in a meaningful way. This balance of giving and receiving is essential to keeping your energy, mood, and motivation at a consistently high level.”

As Lightworkers we tend to give and give and give of our time and resources without any thought as to there being a balance in giving and receiving. As a matter of fact, most of us don’t really know how to receive. What is it we learned as children? “It is better to give than to receive”. And so we tend to say no to things people want to give to us, we often say when offered something, “oh no, that’s okay, I don’t need anything, give it to someone else”. But there is a balance that needs to be maintained and that is the balance of receiving as well as giving. And so we need to learn to just say “Thank you” when we are offered something instead of turning it down.

Most Lightworkers even have a very hard time giving to themselves. We spend our days taking care of others and then fall into bed at night exhausted, only to get up in the morning to do it all again. However we can’t continue to give if we don’t take the time to receive, even from ourselves. When was the last time you did something nice for yourself? When was the last time you took some time for yourself to take a bubble bath, or read a good book, or watch a movie, or any one of a number of other things? Who takes care of you?

We only have so many resources of time, energy, money, and so on from which to draw before we become depleted and/or burned out. This is why it is so important for us to be open to receiving from others and also giving to ourselves. Of what use will we be to anyone else if we let ourselves become depleted to the point of not being able to continue with our missions? And so the message here is to learn to receive with grace and to also give to ourselves so that we then in turn have more to give to others. So take the time today to do something nice for yourself, go for a walk, or buy yourself something special, or take that bubble bath, or read that book. Just do something for you today and don’t feel guilty about it, because you deserve to be rewarded for all the hard work you do.

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~

  1. I love this! I am actually quite good at receiving, even more so than non-spiritual people. I think it is because I love giving so much, it gives me this rush of happiness and purpose. So I think I have just automatically assumed that when I receive I give the same to the giver. Perhaps this is not correct on a conscious level, but I believe that every time we accept a gift from someone, we give a gift of love and beauty to the other, and that gift adds to their soul-love whether they feel it or not. It is like we are giving them good karma 🙂 I think the best thing we can do when someone gives us something is to be very grateful and appreciative and let the other person know how much they have touched us and made us smile. I think then it is more of a gift to the giver, at least a gift that is worth much more 🙂 ❤

    • That is very beautiful Trini! I have had a difficult time myself accepting things from others, whether that be their time, their money, their gifts or whatever. I think part of that has come from a lifetime of not feeling worthy, although that is something I have worked very hard on because one of the big things on this spiritual journey is learning to love ourselves. I never felt worthy of love, or of people wanting to do things for me, or of people giving me things. But I love the way you have said that receiving is a way to make the other person feel good too. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me and with those who will read your comment. Much love and have a great weekend!
