Card For Today

Open Your Heart

Our card for today, Thursday, June 28th, is taken from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Cards – Open Your Heart – “The truth of our world, nature and environment is love.”

This is a calling to each of us to open our hearts to the love that we are. As we have seen before, everything is love, no exceptions and no matter what it looks like. For the most part, loving our family and friends is easy, but can we open our hearts to love those who persecute us as well? Jesus came to teach us about love, how to love our Father God, and how to love each other. He didn’t put restrictions on His love, He loved everyone equally whether rich or poor, Jew or Gentile, black or white. He didn’t care about anything else but that every person is a child of God and that was all that mattered to Him. We are being asked to love as He did, as He taught us to do.

However if we are going to open our hearts to love, we first need to love ourselves. We can’t give love to another if we first don’t love ourselves. I like the teachings of Matt Kahn who follows the teachings of Jesus. I just started reading his book “Whatever Arises, Love That: A Love Revolution That Begins With You”. I’m not very far into it yet but I have been following Matt’s teachings for some time through his Youtube videos. Basically he tells us that if we are angry, or sad, or judgmental, it is a cry for us to love ourselves more because of it. One of the things he likes to do is have people repeat after him by simply saying “I love you!” over and over and over again.

So if we can look at our own bad moods and negative feelings as a reason to give ourselves more love not less, then it stands to reason that when someone is being mean to us, or judging us, or causing us pain in any way, it’s also a cry for us to love them more and not less. It’s not easy to do, it’s much easier to love those who are kind to us, who treat us well, but the challenge is to look at those who treat us badly as someone who needs our love more than those who are nice to us. As the saying goes, “hurt people hurt people”, and that in itself tells us that those are the ones who need our love more than anyone else. If we just return hurt for hurt, we are only perpetuating the problem.

This is not to say that we stay in an abusive relationship or let anyone cause us harm, we can still leave a bad situation and send love to that person and pray for them. Actually what better way to show love for someone who has treated us badly than to pray for them, to pray that their hearts open to the love that they are so that they can know the love that God has for them. Everyone on the planet is on a journey to return home to love, and of course not everyone is following the same path as there are many paths that lead home. It is not for us to judge another’s journey or process, our mission is to love everyone no matter what they do or how bad it seems. We are part of the love revolution, and it’s time to open our hearts and let our love flow out to all who need it, so that we can help bring everyone home.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

You Are Gifted

Our card for today, Wednesday, June 27th, is taken from the Magical Unicorns Oracle Cards – You Are Gifted – “You are very intelligent and talented.”

We all have something we are good at, and maybe more than one thing. Whatever it is that we are good at is our gift (or gifts), or talent, that we brought to this planet to help humanity in some way. So many of us wonder what our gifts or talents are because this person is a talented painter, or pianist, or something else that seems extraordinary to us, but we can’t do anything like that. However our own gift or talent doesn’t have to be something extraordinary, it just has to be something we can do that helps make this world a better place.

We can’t all be brain surgeons or rocket scientists or artists or pianists, other talents are also needed on this planet like gardeners, or cooks, or mechanics, or even garbage collectors. Some people look down on garbage collectors, but go a few weeks without having our garbage picked up and then let’s see how we look at them! There are many things that are necessary to keep this world working the way it does, and there are many things needed to help us move into a better world for all life. We need more inventors and people with ideas on how to do things in a way that doesn’t harm the planet.

Some are uncertain as to what their gifts or talents are, and one way to know would be to think about what brings us joy. What do we love to do? What would we do if money wasn’t an object that keeps us from doing it? Our answers to those questions will lead us to what our talents are. But never believe for one second that our gift isn’t meaningful or worthy because it’s not as amazing as someone else’s gift. Nothing could be further from the truth! If our talent wasn’t just as important as anyone else’s, we wouldn’t have been given it to begin with. We are all like pieces in a giant jigsaw puzzle, each piece is just as important to the whole as the next piece. So no matter what our talent is, it was given to us to use in service to humanity in whatever way we can.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Authenticity

Our card for today, Monday, June 25th, is taken from the Archangel Gabriel Oracle Cards – Authenticity – “Trust that your real self, whom God created Divinely perfect, has the strength and knowledge needed for this situation.”

Whatever situation, trial or tribulation we face, this card assures us that we have whatever it takes to work this out for the highest good of all involved. Let’s look at it this way, we are all the King’s kids, meaning we are all created by God, as pieces of Him to experience life in this dimension. We know that God is Love and that means we too must be Love if we are particles of God. This also means that everyone on this planet, in spite of color, culture, sexual orientation, country or religion is our brother or sister in God. Jesus said we are to love each other, no exceptions. So if we are uncertain as to how to settle a disagreement, or how to work through any situation, we can look at it from the point of view of “what would love do?” There is a saying: “No matter the question, love is always the answer.” By Gail Lynne Goodwin. So if we are being true to who and what we are, we will always find a solution for any situation through love.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For The Weekend

Simplify_Your_Life

Our card for the weekend, June 23rd and 24th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – Simplify Your Life – “Eliminate clutter from your home and work life to balance the flow of activities.”

This card is asking us to get rid of all the things we have in our homes or in our work spaces that are not essential, things we don’t use or need. Speaking for myself, I tend to be a “pack-rat”, I hate letting things go, and I keep adding to them. This leads to needing more space for the things I have and more time to clean it all. I have begun to slowly get rid of the things I don’t use or need anymore. It’s a painstaking process because I look at the things I’m going to get rid of and think “what if someday I need that??” However, if I am honest with myself, I purchased it months ago, or even years ago in some cases, and have never taken it out of the cupboard, or worn it, or needed it in any way. It’s just taking up space.

I have been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook and articles elsewhere that talk about becoming minimalist, meaning we only keep those things that we use or wear regularly. For example one of the things we should do when cleaning out our closets is to turn all the hangers the opposite way and then when we wear something we put that hanger back the right way. At the end of a year, if we have clothes on hangers that are still turned the opposite way, meaning we haven’t worn that piece of clothing in a year, it’s time to let it go. The same goes for cleaning out our cupboards, if there are dishes or pots or pans that we have not used in a very long time, then chances are it’s not necessary to keep them and we can let them go. We can give all of our unnecessary items to a Thrift Store or to someone we know who could use them.

We don’t need as much as we think we do. We live in a consumer driven world. Every advertisement we see promises we will be happy if we just buy this product, and yet many of us do that and are no closer to the happiness we wanted when we purchased that item. So we just keep buying more and more stuff. Just think how much simpler our lives would be if we had less stuff to find space for and less stuff to clean. Just think how much money we could save if we stopped buying the things we don’t really need but just want. It really is about simplifying our lives so that we spend less time cleaning and organizing our stuff and more time doing the things that bring us joy.

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Visualize Success

Our card for today, Thursday, June 21st, is taken from the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards – Visualize Success – “See yourself doing well in this situation, and have faith in a positive outcome.”

We already know that we create our reality with every thought we speak and every word we say, and so if we are facing some situation or trial or tribulation, if we focus on having a positive outcome, then a positive outcome is what we will receive. If we talk about how bad it is and how unlikely it is that things will go our way, or if we think negative thoughts about it, then the more likely it is that we will receive a negative outcome. However if we take it to the Lord in prayer and keep our faith and trust that He will work this situation out for our highest good, and if we focus only on the good that will come from this for us, then we have a much better chance of receiving that positive outcome. As with the Law of Attraction, what we focus on we create, so the choice is always ours. We are creator gods in the sense that it is up to us what we focus our attention on, the positive or the negative, and whichever we choose is what we create more of.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

The High Lady of Love and Compassion

Our card for today, Tuesday, June 19th, is taken from the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle Cards – The High Lady of Love and Compassion – “She brings you a deep and meaningful message: she reminds you that only Love is real.”

It has been said that we live in an illusion in which we are like avatars living in a simulated reality. I don’t have a problem with this concept because this physical body we inhabit does not hold our entire soul. I have read that our soul splits into 12 parts with one part remaining in spirit as our Higher Self and the other eleven parts are experiencing life on this planet, or on other planets, or even other dimensions. It’s also true that we have lived many lives, reincarnating time and time again on this planet, or on others, or again in other dimensions.

Keeping all of this in mind, every incarnation, every experience we have in a physical body, or any other type of body depending on where we might incarnate, is all about our growth as souls. Every experience we have, good or bad, is teaching us about ourselves, who we are as spirit, and who we are as Love. And as we are all pieces of God, all of our experiences go back to Him so that He too experiences it all with us. So based on this, we are all here playing parts for each other or for the world at large and we ourselves have been it all, the good, the bad, and everything in between. We have been the abuser and the abused, the victim and the perpetrator, and so on. All for our soul’s growth. I believe it was Neale Donald Walsch who said imagine the soul who played Hitler and who then maybe came back as Mother Teresa, and the tremendous growth that would have been for that soul! He also said that Hitler went to Heaven and that when we understand this then we will understand God.

What does that mean exactly? I watched a video by Gregg Braden called “The 7 Essene Mirrors”, on Youtube, in which he stated that everything is God, no exception, and that God is Love and that means that everything is Love, no exception. Now how can that be when we look at our world today or even going back to the time of Hitler and all that he did, or any other “bad” person in our history? If we look at the premise of this card that only Love is real, does that help make sense of what I have said here? Every soul on this planet is playing a part to help with the growth of every other soul, and as all souls are part of God and if God is Love, then no matter what part a soul plays in our individual lives or in the world at large, it can only be Love because only Love is real.

In believing that only Love is real and everything else is just an illusion doesn’t excuse us from allowing bad things to happen. Let’s face it, most of the population on this planet is asleep at the wheel so to speak. Everyone goes about their daily lives of work or school, their families and friends, and so on, and whatever happens in the world at large is of no consequence to them unless it directly affects them. Sometimes bad things are allowed to happen to wake people up, to make them lift their heads from looking at their smart phones and notice what is going on in the world.

We have given our power away to our governments and most believe that they have our best interests at heart. But if the government is corrupt and doing unthinkable things, why aren’t the people taking a stand and speaking out against it all? Would Love allow terrible things to happen? NO! But if people think that because it’s not happening to them it doesn’t matter, who are we and what belief system are we following here? That is certainly not Love. And so I believe that things will keep escalating until we are forced to wake up and look at what is going on in the world and then take a stand for what is right and just, not only for ourselves but for all people everywhere. For Love and Compassion to win on this planet, we have to wake up from the illusion.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Dance of the Planets

Our card for today, Monday, June 18th, is taken from the Journey of Love Oracle Cards – Dance of the Planets – “There are forces larger than your own personal destiny at work in your life now. Although they are not inharmonious to you, you may feel as though you are being blocked from, or on the other hand, rocketed towards the heavens on a roll that nothing can derail.”

Many of us may not really understand astrology or how it works in shaping our destiny, but it is true that whatever is happening in the heavens most certainly affects our lives on this planet. We may be trying to manifest something or someone into our reality and it appears to not be working no matter what we do or how hard we pray. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own personal lives that we fail to recognize that there is a grander plan at work here. Yes we may want that thing or that person, and maybe we have wanted it for a very long time (speaking from personal experience here too) and yet it seems to elude us no matter how hard we pray and how faithfully we trust that it is coming.

The problem is not with us and our lack of faith or trust, and it is not that we are not doing it right or doing something wrong. The problem, which is not really a problem at all, is that the timing is off for now. Sometimes there are circumstances that must happen first, or perhaps the right people need to be put in place before our manifestation can occur. We can’t begin to know or understand what God has planned, but we do know that God is faithful in His promises to answer our prayers. Often we think the answer to our prayer is “No”, which may not be the case at all, because most often the answer is “not yet”, meaning it will manifest when the time is right, when the right circumstances have occurred and the right people are in place.

Now it comes back to us to be patient, a lesson many of us wanted to learn in this lifetime apparently (me included!). Having patience may be difficult especially when we are uncertain if the answer is in fact “No” or just “Not yet”. But we are being asked to keep the faith and to trust that our prayers have been heard and will be answered when the time is right for it to be so. We are asked to not give up on manifesting our heart’s desire, even if it takes time for it to manifest. Can we go about our lives and trust that things are being taken care of behind the scenes for the manifestation of what we desire? Can we trust God to be true to His word that whatever we ask for in Jesus name, we will receive? Sometimes the waiting is a test of our own faith and trust to see if we can remain steadfast in our own faith in God. If we can hold onto our faith and trust as we wait, one day the planets will align and our heart’s desire will manifest. Remember everything happens in the Divine Right Time!

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
