Our card for today, Tuesday, April 5th, is taken from the Whispers of Love Oracle Cards – Like Attracts Like – “If you are longing for more love in your life, you need to be more loving.”
Spirit is reminding us that we cannot attract into our lives what we are not ourselves. Many of us are afraid to open our hearts to love because we have been hurt in the past by those who told us that they loved us only to betray us in the end. The opposite of love isn’t hate as many people think it is, the opposite of love is fear. It is our fear of being the love we were created to be that keeps us from finding the love we truly desire. Fear keeps us locked behind the walls that we have built around our hearts to protect us from being hurt again. When we live in fear of love, we cannot trust another to not hurt us, and so we keep love at arm’s length. We want love, but love terrifies us! Something to remember here is that it wasn’t love that hurt us, it was someone who didn’t know how to love who hurt us.
Now we are being told that in order to have the love we long for, we must first open ourselves to love, to give love to all beings, and mostly to love ourselves. If we don’t love ourselves, how can we expect someone else to love us? When we don’t love ourselves, we are looking for someone to give us the love we can’t give to ourselves, and this sets us up for failure. We are looking for confirmation from someone outside of ourselves that we are loveable, and when that love ends, for whatever reason, then we believe it was our fault, that we are not loveable for one reason or another.
So in our quest for love, we must first learn to love ourselves, even if we don’t always like ourselves. This is where we must learn to love ourselves enough to be able to forgive ourselves for any wrong we may have done. As we learn to give love to ourselves, we can then turn that love around to give it to others. As we become more loving and as we love ourselves, then and only then can we ever hope to attract the love we seek to us. As we become love more and more, and as we love ourselves more and more, we then attract to us someone who can mirror the love we have inside us. So now it’s time to break down those walls and let people in.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
