Our card for today, Wednesday, August 5th, is taken from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards – Raising Your Standards – “Don’t settle for less than your dreams. Once you make the commitment to manifest an improved situation, the Universe will find a way to deliver it to you.”
One of the greatest lessons we are here to learn is to learn to love ourselves. If we can truly love ourselves, then we will not settle for anything less than the best in our relationships, in our careers, and really in anything this world has to offer. The problem is that we have grown up in a society that tells us that unless we wear a size 0, or look like a super model, or have the right job, or the right car or house, or have the right friends, and the list can go on and on and on, then no one is going to love us.
Some of us have come from abusive family situations or from abusive marriages or other relationships, where we were not considered anything but someone’s property for them to use and abuse at will. We have been told that we are unworthy of love or of any of the good things life has to offer. We have been beat down and walked over and we have believed the lies that others have told us about ourselves. But these were all lies.
Each and every one of us is so magnificent, so grand and beautiful, and yet we don’t even know it about ourselves. Every one of us is a piece of God, the Creator of all things, so how can we be less than magnificent and powerful and beautiful? It is time to look within our own hearts to find the truth of who we really are and once we do that, then we will never settle for anything less than the best of everything. It’s time to look in the mirror and tell ourselves how much we love ourselves, and keep doing that until we believe it, until every cell in our bodies radiates that love we feel for ourselves. Once we can do that, then only the best this world has to offer will show up for us.
When we love ourselves enough, it will overflow from our own hearts to touch every being upon this sweet earth. We will go through our days feeling love and compassion for all life, knowing that every person we see, every plant, and every animal, bird, fish or insect is a direct reflection of the love we were created from, the love we ourselves are. Don’t we all deserve love? Yes, and the love we need the most is our own love of self. From that place of self-love comes all good things.
Affirmation: I deserve and expect the best in life. I hold high standards for myself. (Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards Guidebook)
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
