Our card for today, Wednesday, March 9th, is taken from the Magical Times Empowerment Cards – Rebirth – “No matter what happens you can find new wings. Rise from the past. Accept the positive change that is coming.”
This is an awesome card to follow yesterday’s card! So for all of us who feel disillusioned by love, this card is a reminder that we can rise like a phoenix from the ashes of our past and open to new experiences that are coming our way. Something we need to remember too is that it isn’t love that hurt us, it was someone who didn’t know how to love that hurt us. If we respond to the pain of betrayal or love lost by shutting ourselves down and putting up barriers to protect ourselves from love, how will we ever find the true love we long for?
We are asked to release the past and not let it make us bitter or cynical. We must forgive the one who hurt us and try to understand that this person has experienced pain and betrayal from someone they loved before us, and often times the way they treated us comes from their own place of being afraid to love, afraid we would do to them what their past lovers have done. Now it is up to us to break this cycle of pain by remaining open to new love coming into our lives and not being afraid to love again.
We can do this by loving ourselves first, because truly no one can give us the love we really want but our own true self. When we can love ourselves completely and unconditionally, then we will draw to us someone who will mirror the love we have for ourselves. This is not easy to do and trust me I know this myself. How do we love the one looking back at us in the mirror when all we see is imperfection? We are too fat or too thin, we are not smart enough, or pretty enough, or we feel we are not worthy of love for some other reason. Maybe we have done terrible things in our lives that we can’t forgive ourselves for, and so we feel that no one could possibly love us if they knew what we have done.
These are lies we tell ourselves, maybe because they were told to us by other people in our lives. We have come to believe the lies and so we are willing to put up with being mistreated by someone we view as a love interest or partner because we don’t believe we deserve any better. If this is the case, and it most often is, then we must do our own inner work. We must spend time with our inner child who hides within us and who lives in fear of being abandoned and unloved, not by someone else but by ourselves.
Our inner child needs to know we love him or her, and that they are safe because we will keep them safe. This is why we must love ourselves enough to set healthy boundaries and not put up with any form of abuse from someone who claims to love us. We must stand firm in our belief that we are very deserving of love, that we are more than worthy of being treated with dignity and respect from those we let into our hearts. As we stand firm in our own love and light, we will draw to us someone who can mirror that back to us and who will be our perfect mate.
So let’s do that inner work, forgive ourselves for anything we have done, and forgive others for anything that was done to us. We can and we must find our new wings, rise up from our past, and rebirth ourselves into the beautiful beings of love and light we all are. The energy on this planet is changing and so we must let the past go in order to embrace a very new and different future than the one we have been told was coming. People are awakening by the thousands now and the divine feminine and the divine masculine are making themselves known. As this happens, the hurt of the past will dissolve into nothingness and only love and respect for each other and all life will remain. So let’s get prepared for what is coming by letting go of anything that holds us back from being the love we were all born to be.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
