Card: Self-Acceptance – from the Healing with the Angels by Doreen Virtue.
“You are a perfect child of God, and every part of you is wonderful. Your angels guide you to let go of negative self-judgments and to enjoy being you!”
Message from Erin: Well, theFaeries say that it’s my turn to do the reading this week. What a wonderful card for all of us to get. It’s such a simple message, yet it might be one of the most challenging to hear: Love yourself – all of yourself. Love every single millimetre of your body. Love every inch of your soul. And love that ego of yours too! All of it!
I hear all the time from the Faeries and the Angels that they love me no matter what I say or do. They tell me all that time that I am perfect in every possible way. They remind me all the time that because I am part of God’s creation, that there is absolutely nothing wrong with me. I hear these things, but I still have a hard time really listening and taking this powerful message to heart.
I strongly believe that this one of the most important lesson in my life’s journey: learning to love myself. For me, it’s just not just about looking in the mirror and liking the person I see. It’s so much more profound than that. It’s about really learning to let go of all my judgments and hang ups. And oh boy, do I have a lot of them. Sometimes when I think I’ve got one taken care of, another one pops up out of nowhere. The human mind is quite the remarkable thing.
My most recent example would be my recent decision to not become a professional tarot reader. For a while I thought it was I wanted to do. I’m really good at it. I know I am intuitively gifted and that I can really help people with my talents, but as I continued on my journey I realized that despite my gifts and talents, it’s not my calling. It isn’t my life’s purpose.
I was really confused at first. I thought that because I have these gifts I was under some sort of moral obligation to share these gifts and talents. The Faeries have been showing me that I am under no moral obligation whatsoever! I am not really serving anyone if I am not perusing my true passion. I much prefer writing. I love writing, studying and academia. When I’m not pushing my brain’s limits I really begin to wilt, not blossom.
This week I started to feel guilty because I’ve decided to go back to university. I feel incredibly excited at the prospect of going back to school to work towards a degree in sociology. I think I’m going to love it, but I had this funny moment where I was worried that going back to school would not be spiritual enough – even though the Angels and Faeries guided me to apply to university – I was worried it was too left-brained. So silly of me. I came to the realization that no matter what I am doing it’s being spiritual. It is called Universe-ity, after all.
Acknowledging and remembering the academic side of me is part of my journey of self-acceptance. It’s been an interesting twist on the road of my life’s journey. I certainly wouldn’t have thought I would be headed this way a few months ago, but life unfolds in mysterious and magical ways.
Whatever happens for all of you this week, I hope you remember to love yourself along the way.
Wishing you all the best of everything,
Erin (and the Faeries)
