Faerie Card Reading for the Week of August 12th – 18th, 2013
Card: Be Yourself – from the Magical Messages from the Faeries Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“This situation calls for you to be your authentic self, which is the basis for your personal power.
You’re most powerful and effective when you’re genuine and authentic with yourself and others. If you pretend to feel, act, or be something other than yourself, you lose awareness of your feelings, which are a source of important guidance.
The answer to the question you’re asking is ‘Be yourself’. Behave, speak, and even dress as you normally would; and don’t worry about what others think. By being your true self, you give others the opportunity to love the real you.”
Message from the Faeries: The greatest gift you can give yourself is to simply be yourself. Be who you are at any given moment. This means: Stop trying to shove yourself in boxes! You make all these funny boxes for yourself and label them things like “mother” “daughter” “healer” “librarian” “doctor” “woman” , and you shove yourselves inside these boxes that are really quite limiting. You even make these terrible boxes for yourself that say things like “ugly person” “idiot” “good-for-nothing”. It’s quite horrible to see when you put yourself into those particular boxes.
Yes…these are all just words. Words that you use to describe yourself. Sometimes it is necessary to use words to describe yourself, but we would like you to also really think about the words you use and how much weight they carry. If you are a mother, of course there is nothing that will change that, you will always be a mother in your life, but is the word mother limiting you from doing or saying some of things that you really want to be doing or saying. “I can’t go to this show because I have to be a mom.” Certainly sometimes circumstances might prevent you from doing certain things from time to time, but we just want to check in with you and make sure that you aren’t just hiding behind the mom label to stop yourself from doing something you would really love to do – in a harmful self inflicted martyrdom. We see you guys doing this sort of thing all the time.
Words carry weight! Your inner and outer dialogue – the things you say inwardly and outwardly about yourself really have a very large impact on you and your life. This is alchemy. The things you say or do have consequence.
What are you saying about yourself every day? Who do you want to be? How do you want to be? Lead your thoughts, words and actions this way. This is a moment to moment action, as the things you want and who you want to be can change at any given moment, and this is beautiful. All the labels you give yourself are the limitations you put on yourself. If you allow others to label you and put limitations on you, that’s your business as well. You are the alchemist. Who’s the boss? You’re the boss!
We love you!
