Our card for today, Wednesday, February 22nd, is taken from the Getting into the Vortex Relationship Cards – The Thoughts I Think Determine the Relationship I Attract – “Not only does the power of your thought determine which people make their way into your life, but it determines how they behave once they get there. You are the thinking, Vibrating attractor of your experience; and the thoughts you think determine everything about the life that you live. As you turn your attention toward the positive aspects of the personalities and behaviors of others with whom you share your planet, you will train your point of attraction in the direction of only what you desire.”
Hmmm, I think I mentioned last night that sometimes the cards I draw for these readings are also messages for myself, just as this one seems to be. The behaviors of most of the men in my life have left me very disillusioned in the opposite sex. I know there is the Divine Masculine energy on this planet and men who do indeed embody it, however for myself I have yet to see it. Most of my life has been marked with failed relationships, even my own Twin Flame. Then there are the behaviors of men I have worked with who cheated on their partners or spouses, those who propositioned me from an early age, those who were drug addicts or alcoholics, or those who were just plain old jerks. That’s not to say that I haven’t had a couple of men in my life who embodied a more responsible faithful kind of man, my father and my two brothers are included in that. However from my own personal observations and experiences, those men are few and far between. Notice I said from MY OWN observations and experiences, not anyone else’s observations or experiences.
I know there are good men out there, but that is not what I seem to attract. So that means it’s something I’m not doing right, and this could be just the card to tell me that. When I meet someone I have high hopes, I tend to look for the good in people, but because of my past, I do have trust issues. Generally a month or two into a relationship I am left shaking my head again and the only thing I say now is “MEN!” That one word sums it up for me lately. Now I will say I’m sorry to all the good men out there who are reading this, like I said, I know there are good men out there, but for some reason that is not what I am attracting to myself. Perhaps it’s that one word I have come to use to sum up the entire opposite sex “MEN”. Perhaps I have a thing for “bad boys”, but perhaps it’s really an issue of my own lack of self-worth believing I don’t deserve the love of a good man, and therefore I attract the men who can’t be faithful or who are not good partner material for one reason or another. But perhaps now it’s time I take a new approach as this card suggests and focus on the positive attributes of men I know which may actually mean I could attract the kind of man I truly desire.
Actually in that interview of Doreen Virtue I watched the other day, she said that after having a few failed relationships herself, she made a list of all the things she wanted in a man and now she has him. She said she was very specific and that we need to be as well. The more specific we can be, the better the outcome will be. That is not to say that you say you want this person by name, but to list the qualities you wish to have in your ideal mate and leave the who to God, or the Universe. So I see this being a time of great change for me, I have to learn to commit to myself and to my life, and now I have to change the way I think about men if I ever hope to attract the right one. I’m guessing it will be the same for some of you if you haven’t already mastered these things for yourself.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
