Our card for today, Friday, May 4th, is taken from The Power of Surrender Cards by Judith Orloff – Surrender to the Magic of Who You Are – “We all have magic in us. Even in the mundane aspects of life, remember that you are a magical being with a uniqueness and worth that come from just being you!”
This card is asking us to stop trying to fit in, to stop trying to be like everyone else, and to start being who we really are beneath the masks we wear so people will like us. We were not created to be the same, we were created as unique expressions of our Creator’s love. If we were meant to be like everyone else, then God would just have made clones that look alike, think alike, talk alike and so on. Sometimes when we look around at people it may seem like they are in fact clones of each other. However He didn’t do that, He created diversity and uniqueness in every single individual on this planet, emphasis on individual. We are all individually unique, and we all have unique gifts and talents that are ours alone but that we are meant to share with the world. We can’t begin to know our unique gifts and talents, let alone share them with the world, if we are intent on being like those around us just so we can fit in and be liked.
We think that if we are ourselves, who we really are with our odd beliefs, or our quirky sense of humor, or some other quality/qualities that we think would make us unacceptable or unlikeable, people will think we are strange. Heck I have been considered strange most of my life. For a time, when I was younger, I tried to fit in. I tried to be interested in what the people around me were interested in, and I didn’t talk about things that I was really interested in or believed in because generally I was laughed at and ostracized, but I was miserable. Now I don’t give a hoot, and maybe that comes with age, but if you don’t like me for who I really am, move along, I no longer care. Since the internet came into being, I find I’m not as alone as I once thought I was. There are many others out there who share my interests and beliefs, and who are just as quirky and strange as I am. These are my tribe I guess you could say.
I met a man in 2008 who I believed to be my Twin Flame. It was in trying to find answers to the connection we shared, as I knew nothing about Twin Flames at the time, that I came across the idea of Twin Flames, ascension, Lightworkers, and many other spiritual topics that opened up a whole new world for me. In exploring these ideas and concepts, I found myself and my reason for being here. When I came across the idea of Starseeds, well that answered a lot of questions for me. I got together with 2 of my sisters one evening and I was telling them about some of the things I was learning, and I said, “I knew I wasn’t from here!” and one of my sisters patted me on the back and said “that’s okay, we knew it too!” Exploring all these ideas and concepts is how I got into doing card readings. I was always interested in the Tarot, and was being told, when I would get a reading done for myself, that I could do this too. However I was too afraid, too afraid I couldn’t do this, that they were mistaken, and now here I am.
So my point is, don’t be afraid to explore all those things that make you uniquely you. It can be quite a journey but you never know just what you may find and what gifts you may have to offer this world as it moves through it’s transition to the 5th dimension. Perhaps you already know what your gifts are and are afraid to bring them to light in fear of being laughed at or rejected as crazy. Please don’t let that stop you from being who you are and who you were always meant to be. We are all needed here and those gifts and talents were given to us for a reason, so we could help humanity through this ascension process. You may not understand how just yet, but in time it will be made clear to you just how necessary your gifts are as we move forward, closer and closer to our destiny as a planet in ascension status. There is a saying, “Be you, the world will adjust!”
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
Love & Light,
