Card For Today

Traveling Lightly

Our card for today, Wednesday, April 18th, is taken from the Sacred Traveler Oracle Cards by Denise Linn – Traveling Lightly – “Simplify your life; otherwise it’s difficult to hear the voice of the Creator.”

We are pretty much raised to be consumers from the moment we are born on this earth. We need to work to make money so we can buy “stuff”. So by saying that, let’s put aside the fact that most of us need to make money just to survive in today’s world. It takes money to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table, and the many other necessities that we require to live. Okay now we have done that, let’s look at all the other stuff we tend to acquire that is not a necessity. I’m as guilty of it as anyone else, believe me.

Part of the reason we do this is because we believe that if we buy this or that thing it will make us happy. That’s what they show us in advertising isn’t it? If we just have that thing we will be happy, but it’s a lie. We might be happy for a short time, but then the novelty wears off and we are looking for the next thing that might make us happy. And so we keep accumulating more and more stuff. Then there is the need to replace our gadgets with the newest and best we can afford. Basically whenever we buy a piece of technology nowadays, whether that is a cell phone, a tablet, a computer, a TV, or a car, it’s already being replaced in the market by something newer and better, or faster, or sleeker, or has a better camera, or whatever. The list goes on. And so now we have to have that newer thing because now that will make us happy.

So where does it all end? It ends with us. For those of us who are older and have been at this for a while, we know that the claims of most advertising is false. We have spent a lot of money acquiring our “stuff” and we are not any happier than we were before we got it. This is telling us that we don’t even need most of this stuff we have. Lately I have been trying to follow this rule, if I buy something like a new shirt, then I have to give to charity one I already have. Same goes for most things I buy that are not necessities. I am also keeping track of things I already have in a similar way so that if I have not used or worn it in a year, then I give it away. This way I get rid of all the stuff that I don’t really need. Nice to have, yes, need it, no. With less stuff there is also less maintenance involved, less to clean, less to deal with. More time for doing what makes me truly happy.

This not only goes for acquiring things we don’t really need, but also includes things we do that are not really necessary either. So many people like to be busy busy busy, running here and there, involved in this activity or another, and that’s fine if it makes you happy. But, with all this busy-ness, where is the time to relax, or to spend in prayer or meditation? It all comes down to what is truly important to us, things like spending time with our loved ones, spending our money on things that truly will make us happy or are necessary, instead of just buying more “stuff”, spending time in nature, and spending time with God. It’s time to think about what is truly important to us and then simplify our lives accordingly.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Yin

Our card for today, Tuesday, April 17th, is taken from the Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards – Yin – Essential Meanings: The feminine principle of receptivity; letting someone else make the first move; gathering information and taking in cues; the art of conscious allowing.

How often in our lives have we been told that to be successful in anything we have to make it happen, we have to go after it, or we have to work hard for it. Now this card is telling us to stop and wait, to listen to our inner guidance, to look for the signs and synchronicities, and to recognize and be ready for the answer to our prayers when it arrives. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is wait when we want to get out there and take control to make it happen. Trust me, patience is a life lesson I am here to learn! However right now instead of fighting for whatever it is we want, we are being asked to stop and just be patient, allowing things to unfold as they are meant to and not as we would have them to.

Sometimes the answer to our prayers depends on timing, or what I like to call the Divine Right Time. We may want it NOW but sometimes God asks us to wait a little while until the timing for the answer to our prayer is just right, and He alone knows when that is. We can fight against the waiting and try to make things happen on our own, but most often all we do is push what we are longing for further away instead of bringing it closer. That does not mean that we sit and twiddle our thumbs while we wait, we are now expected to work on ourselves. That means becoming the best version of ourselves that we can be. This may require some reflection, some inner work, to know exactly what that is, but it is not time wasted, it is time well spent in making ourselves ready so that we will recognize and accept the answer when it arrives.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Youre_Being_Helped

Our card for today, Tuesday, February 13th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – You’re Being Helped – “Heaven is working behind the scenes to help you, even if you don’t see results yet.”

There may be times when we face challenges in life. These challenges may be financial, relationships, painful situations, etc. We may feel during these times that God or the Universe has forsaken us, or we may ask “Why me??” However as this card is telling us, we are never without help and we are never alone when we face these challenges. As I was reading in “Mornings with the Lord” by Doreen Virtue yesterday, the Holy Spirit is always with us and is praying to God for us even if we are unable to pray ourselves.

It is easy to feel lost or alone or overwhelmed in today’s busy world, but we are assured that this is never the case, that we are surrounded by love and guidance and help whenever we need it. However we must not lose hope or faith if it seems as if we have been abandoned or left to fend for ourselves. Sometimes the answers or solutions can take a little time to manifest but that doesn’t mean they are not on the way. We are asked to hold the faith and not give up hope. Help is on the way!

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

To Be Fair

Our card for today, Monday, February 12th, is taken from the Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards – To Be Fair – Essential Meanings: Balance; justice; a need to consider options; mutual benefit; the Law of Cause and Effect. “Life offers experiences that are challenging and experiences that are nourishing, yet over time, they strike a balance.”

This may be hard for many to accept, but how boring and mundane would life be if all our experiences were happy and joyful? How would we experience growth? How would we know what it is we want and what it is we don’t want if everything always went our way? If that is what we wanted, then we would have remained in spirit and not incarnated on this planet, this school of learning. Matt Kahn in one of his Youtube videos, and I can’t remember which one off hand, when talking about why we incarnate on the planet said “How long can you listen to choirs of angels sing?” LOL!

We came here to have experiences. As was said before, we write our blueprints for this lifetime before we incarnate. In those blueprints are all the things we want to experience while here on planet earth. Some of those experiences will be happy, joyful ones, and some of those experiences will be challenging, or even sad ones. Some of those challenging experiences may not even be about us as much as that we agreed to go through it to help someone else. I went through something not very long ago that I struggled to see what the lesson was or why I had to go through it, when it dawned on me that maybe it might not be about me at all, maybe it was to benefit someone else involved in some way. I found that realization helpful for me to accept what had happened.

While we are here we may not know or understand the reasons why things happen to us the way they do, but we can rest assured that if it’s not benefiting us in some way, even if we can’t see it right now, then it is benefiting someone else involved. So maybe we need to learn to accept the good and the bad knowing that everything happens for a reason for ourselves or for someone else, and find a way to see the positive in the experience. We are always learning and expanding through every experience and it really is about balance.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Walk Away

Our card for today, Friday, February 9th, is taken from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards – Walk Away – “Leave the unhealthy situation, and enjoy the new doors that open as a result!”

This card is telling us that if we find ourselves in an unhealthy situation, be that a marriage, a relationship of any kind, a job, or any other situation that causes us to feel afraid, or under attack, or to suffer any form of abuse, physical, emotional or mental, it is time to walk away, to get out of there now and keep a healthy distance between ourselves and the person or situation. Anything that makes us feel small, or unworthy, or in fear for our own personal safety is too high a price to pay for money, or love, or success. As hard as it might be, it is better to get out now and start over. Generally speaking, anything that does what I have mentioned above is not meant for us. The feelings of unworthiness, or being attacked, or fear for our safety, or anything negative that makes us feel threatened in any way, is the universe’s way of showing us it’s time to move on and find something better.

I’m not saying it’s easy. I had to leave my marriage because my ex was emotionally, mentally, and, on occasion, physically abusive. I always felt afraid that I might say or do something that would set him off. Our daughter was 8 years old when I left. It was hard to leave because at the time I wasn’t working and I had no money, but my family and friends were very supportive and I moved in with my parents for a short time till I got back on my feet. The day I left my ex I got a call with a job offer. Even with all that had happened, I still questioned if I had made the right decision for a while afterwards, but that was because he had taken away my self-esteem and self-confidence.

So if we find ourselves in any situation that eats away at our soul and destroys our self-confidence, or makes us feel small or afraid in any way, chance are we are not meant to be with that person, or in that job, or in that relationship. It’s time to walk away and wait for new opportunities and people to show up in our lives. Remember that as long as we continue to hold onto the old, all the new things that are meant for us can’t find the space to come into our lives.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Dreamer

Our card for today, Wednesday, February 7th, is taken from the Magical Times Empowerment Cards – Dreamer – “Your dreams have chosen you. Find fulfillment in pursuing your destiny. This is the magic of life.”

We are being asked, if we are not already doing so, to start pursuing our destiny. Now like many of you, I’m not sure what my destiny is, and, at my age, I wonder if it’s not too late. However from things I have read, age has nothing to do with it, so we are never too old to pursue our destiny. I do think that doing readings is part of my destiny, now if my body would just cooperate! It’s not easy some days as I deal with chronic pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease, so there will be days when I won’t get a reading done but such is life. However if we are not sure what our destiny is, then we are told to follow what brings us joy, what brings fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment. Maybe it would mean taking a course, or doing some research, or even an online course for us to pursue our destiny, but again we must do whatever it takes to find it and do it.

We don’t all have some grand destiny like being president or a movie star, for the majority of us it could be something as simple as being love and light in a world where so much darkness abides. As Lightworkers, we are here to help raise the vibration of the planet and that could be as simple as our just being here on the planet. But many of us feel, or have an inner knowing, that we are here to do something much greater than working our regular jobs and raising a family. In many cases, that something greater will be revealed in time, but for now we can get started with what we feel called to do right now, even the small things like acts of kindness, lending a hand where it’s needed, making small talk with strangers, or whatever it is we feel called to do in each moment. Destiny is calling, are we ready?

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

The Lady of Lightning

Our card for today, Thursday, February 1st, is taken from the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards – The Lady of Lightning – Meanings: Surprises, sometimes shock; total paradigm shift. “The Lady of Lightning brings powerful forces of change into your life.”

Those of us on the spiritual path have been experiencing changes for a long time. I know when I started on this path in 2008, my life underwent radical changes and has never been the same since. And we have been hearing a lot about change in our readings lately, and not just personal changes but also planetary changes and changes to the entire collective consciousness. 2018 is said to be a year of great change and so we can expect some surprises and yes maybe even shock as we go through this paradigm shift. This is to be expected as our entire planet and all upon her go through the shift, as it is in reality a birthing process and birth is messy.

What we need to remember as things shift and change is that this is what we have been waiting for most of our lives, this is in fact why we are here. We came to this planet at this time in her history to lend our light to the collective and to the earth herself to help with this shift. We already see things happening as we experience this shift, like strange weather patterns all over the globe, the increase in earthquake and volcanic activity; the deaths of thousands of birds, fish, whales, and other species; the movement of the oceans and much more. Some of it can be quite scary and perplexing. However nothing is happening that is not necessary, Mother Earth knows what she is doing and is doing what she can to keep the loss of life to a minimum even if it may not seem so. Remember when all is said and done we will be living on the New Earth and at the beginning of the Golden Age.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
