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

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 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~

Card For Today

I Came as an Extension of Source Energy

Our card for today, Thursday, June 14th, is taken from the Getting into the Vortex Cards – I Came as an Extension of Source Energy.

God, or Source, is the Creator of all that is and when we understand this we then have to accept that there isn’t anything that is not of God. God is in all things and all things are in God. We have said before that we are all the King’s kids. Even Jesus said it when He quoted from Psalms 82:6: “I said, ‘You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High.’” So how can it be when we hear this that we doubt who and what we are? How can we doubt our worthiness to receive our heart’s desires? And if we are all physical extensions of God, as this card says, then there is nothing we cannot do, or be, or have.

The issue we face is being in alignment with what we desire. Instead of knowing that we are one with God, or Source, we believe we are separate from Him. This belief that we are separate is one part of being out of alignment with our desires, and the other part is doubt. When we are working on manifesting anything into our reality, if we let one iota of doubt enter into our minds and hearts about our ability to manifest it, or our worthiness to receive it, then we are out of alignment and it won’t manifest. If we can just master the knowing that we are pieces of God, or that we are Source energy, and that He is in us and we are in Him, then there is nothing that can stop us from doing, or being, or having whatever it is our heart’s desire.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For Today

Pregnancy

Our card for today, Tuesday, June 12th, is taken from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards – Pregnancy – “The birth of a child brings great blessings to you and the world.”

When I first drew this card I thought it was an odd choice as many of you, including me, won’t relate to being pregnant right now unless you yourself are pregnant or you have someone in your life who is. I almost put the card back to draw another one, but then it hit me, this card is not necessarily about giving birth to a baby. What do I mean by that? We are all pregnant in a sense, in that we are all getting ready to give birth to our new selves. That is what this ascension process is about after all.

I’m sure most of us can agree that we are all changing in ways we may or may not understand. Our interests are changing, the way we do things is changing, the people we want to associate with are changing, and more. Things in our personal lives are changing, like our relationships and our jobs or careers, and where we live. If we take a look at who we were a year ago, heck even a few months ago, we will see that we are indeed changing. This can be frustrating or even scary to some because most of us don’t like change, we like the status quo. But remember, nothing stays the same for long, not even ourselves. We are all learning and growing and yes changing. Giving birth can be a scary and painful process. As this ascension process continues, we will change even more as we give birth to our new selves.

The energies on the planet are increasing. Our sun is becoming more powerful as it is being affected by the energies we are entering as we travel through space. I was watching a video today where it showed the material around the lights on a car that had melted, and it wasn’t even above normal temperatures for this time of year, and he doesn’t live in a hot climate. The guy said he had been driving this car, or the same model of car, for 12 years and had never seen anything like this happen before. So it’s not heat that melted the material around the lights, it’s just the power of the sun, possibly UV radiation.

Everything on this planet is changing, all life and even the planet herself. In the Book of Revelation it says: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.” (Revelation 21:1) We are on the verge of great change, but it will be change for the better, as it goes on to say in the Book of Revelation: “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) I believe the labor pains have begun from all that we see happening on the planet, and it won’t be long now before the birth of the new takes place.

Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~

Card For The Weekend

Thou Shalt Love The Lord Your God

Our card for the weekend, June 9th and 10th, is taken from the Loving Words from Jesus Card Deck – “Thou shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Mark 12:30)

When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was this was His answer: 29“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ (Mark 12:29-30) So when we are wondering what we should be doing,  we have the most important commandment to guide us.

However, how many of us can say that we actually follow this commandment? In today’s society, with our busy-ness and our technology, how many of us take the time to love God, to spend time reading His word or praying every day? God doesn’t only want to be part of our lives on Sunday when we go to church, He wants to be part of our lives every second of every day. He wants a relationship with us and not a part time relationship but a full time one. He wants us to come to Him not only in times of trouble and sadness, but He wants us to come to Him in times of happiness and joy as well. He wants to share our lives, to be our constant companion, our dearest friend and father.

God is not some old man with a long white beard sitting on a throne on a cloud somewhere, He’s in our hearts, He’s part of us and we are part of Him. He is everywhere and in everything. Maybe if we had a better relationship with God, we would find that our lives are better. We would have more love, and more joy, and more peace in our lives if we loved and acknowledged Him. So many people feel alone in life when in reality we are never alone, even if we don’t realize it ourselves, God is always with us. But if we forget to, or refuse to, acknowledge Him and take the time to have a relationship with Him, then yes life can feel very lonely and difficult indeed. Having a close relationship with God and Jesus doesn’t mean we won’t face troubles, but it does mean that we won’t face them, or anything, alone.

No matter how far we roam in this life, eventually we will all find our way back home to the One who created us and Who loves us more than we can imagine. At some point in our lives something will happen that will show us just how much we need God and that our relationship with Him far exceeds anything else we could ever have. He patiently awaits our return because we are after all the King’s kids!

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~
