Our card for today, Thursday, July 2nd, is taken from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards – Honoring Your True Feelings – “By drawing this card, you’re urged to listen to, and follow, your true feelings. Do not betray yourself, or rationalize that it’s acceptable to deny your inner voice of truth.”
For a long time I didn’t trust my own feelings, my own inner guidance, or my heart to guide me in decisions I needed to make regarding any facet of my life. I always looked for advice from others and tended to follow that instead of listening to what my own heart or inner guidance was telling me. I let what others had to say influence almost everything I did or didn’t do. I think it started when I was young, and because I have always been different, the choices I would make were not the choices most everyone else would make. So because I was being ridiculed for the choices I was making, I began to doubt myself and so that was the start of seeking the advice from others, friends, family members, coworkers or anyone who would help me decide what I needed to do. It’s from experiences like mine that most of us have learned not to trust our own inner guidance.
However if there is one thing I have learned over the past few years is that no one knows what is best for me or for you except ourselves. It’s time to open up and begin to trust our own feelings, our own gut reactions, and our own intuition when it comes to what is best for us. As we learn to open up to it and to trust it, we get better at it. I know in my own experience, I would have a feeling that this was the course of action to take or the choice I should make, but instead I listened to what someone else told me and it ended up being the wrong choice that I later came to regret. WE are the only ones who know what we feel and therefore what is right for us, not some self-proclaimed expert or even a well-meaning friend or family member. It’s our own guidance that we need to follow and to stop second-guessing ourselves. We have everything we need inside our own hearts to make the right decisions or choices for ourselves. We don’t need to look for outside guidance or advice. We just need to learn to trust what we get.
I have a Twin Flame blog and I get people writing me all the time asking if this or that person is their Twin Flame, or they tell me that something is happening in their relationship and then ask me what I think they should do. I keep saying to them that I am not a Twin Flame expert and no one else can tell you if someone is or isn’t your Twin Flame, that is something you KNOW inside your own heart. I try to refrain from giving advice to others because if I do give someone advice and they follow it, if it doesn’t work out, who do you think is going to get blamed? That’s right, me. So it’s time to let go of the need to get someone else’s advice or opinion on what is right for us and listen to what our own hearts are telling us. We were all given this thing called intuition, we just need to learn to trust it.
Affirmation: I listen to, honor, and follow my true feelings, knowing that they are answers to my prayers.”
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
