Our card for today, Friday, October 9th, is taken from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards – Self-Reliance – “You are your own best friend, and you can provide for yourself emotionally and physically.”
If there is one thing most of us have learned in this life is that people, even our family and closest friends, can’t always be there for us or give us what we need, whether that is love, or companionship, or someone to share this journey with. And so we have had to learn to rely on ourselves to give to us what we need the most, our own love and attention. It’s been a hard lesson to learn for many of us and speaking for myself, it hurts when we hope for something from others that becomes denied in one way or another.
We have had to learn that we are the only ones we can depend on when push comes to shove, and most of us have had to walk this path alone. We have had to learn to figure things out for ourselves. We have had to learn to look to our own inner guidance to help us navigate our way in this world. I’m sure many of you, like me, have looked at other people, other couples, other families and wondered what makes it seem so easy for them and why is it so hard for us to find that special someone who understands us and loves us for all that we are, someone we can rely on in times of need, and someone who will walk this path with us?
I have asked myself this so many times and sorry to say I am no closer to an answer with the exception that I feel most of us were meant to figure it out for ourselves. We were meant to rely on ourselves instead of having someone else to rely on. As I was told once, this journey was not meant for the faint of heart or for spiritual sissies. It’s a journey that we must take alone with only ourselves for companions and only ourselves to love us the way our hearts long to be loved. I know I have said this before, but I do believe that had we found what we wanted and set up house and lived happily ever after, we would not have become as strong as we have.
The time is coming when our strength is going to be needed, nay it is already here. We are the way-showers, we are the ones who will lead others out of the darkness and into the light. This is why we are here, not to play house and have that fairy-tale romance, as much as we may want it. We have come from varied backgrounds with many many experiences, and not all of them pleasant, so that we could become what would be needed as the changes increase on this planet.
So now it’s time to take heart and understand that we chose this path before we came into this reality, this illusion. It was our choice to have all the experiences we have had, including pain and loneliness and heartache. We have survived great odds at times to get to where we are today and to become who we are as well. It was not punishment for something we did or didn’t do, it was so that we could understand that we are made of sterner stuff than most.
So the time is upon us when we will soon have to gird our loins and pick up our swords and lead humanity onward. But remember we gird our loins with our own inner strength and our swords are weapons of love, not destruction. It is time now to let our lights shine into the darkness as beacons to help others find their way. This is why we are here and this is why we have learned to be self-reliant. Our self-reliance is our strength!
