Card: Let Yourself Receive – from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“By receiving you replenish yourself and balance the male and female energies within and around you. By allowing yourself to receive, you swim in the flow of life, which washes away stagnant energy, bringing in new forms of abundance, creative ideas, and all types of opportunities. Even the simplest act of receiving is healing, and it is a powerful step in the manifestation process.”
Message from the Faeries: When was the last time someone gave you a compliment? Did you accept this compliment? Did you take it to your heart and receive it? It’s a hard thing to do, isn’t it?
People are trying to give you gifts all the time and, whether you realize it or not, you are often turning those presents away. Unexpected gifts are often the hardest to accept. Whether it’s a compliment or an act of kindness, friends and family have been trying to shower you with awards for being awesome. Of course, sometimes you are able to accepts these offerings, but it can be a struggle, and it often your acceptance lacks in grace. How many times have you openly offered someone something for nothing and the transaction swiftly turns awkward?
This week is the perfect week to practice acceptance. Be open to receiving. More specifically, practice receiving with an open heart and really accept gifts in your heart, with ease and grace. Take the compliments and feel good about yourself. You all deserve all the good things that people have to offer you. You can be open to receiving, and also be in a place where you take no guff!
We love you.
Card: Six of Pentacles – from the Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy.
“The gift of flowers illustrates spiritual growth through the giving of knowledge, support, and kindness. The ever-seeding flower on the girl’s head represents the joyful cycle of giving and receiving.”
Message from the Faeries: The message we have for you this week is very simple – be open to receive. Like the faerie on this card who is receiving gifts, you have lots of gifts coming your way as well. You can’t have these gifts if aren’t open to getting them.
The spirit of generosity is what allows your heart and mind be open to giving and recieving bounty. If you are in a place where you see wealth as being limited and finite, then you will have a difficult time with getting presents. If you are a miserly person, or feel like you don’t have enough to give, then you will also have hard time reciecing gifts when offered to you.
The truth is, whether you see it or not, even if you have no physical wealth you have so much to offer to people. You have your own gifts inside you to give to others. Even giving someone a smile could be greatest gift you could offer. Don’t get hung up on monetary wealth and buying people gifts. Those often aren’t the gifts that really matter at the end of the day. What people need most is love, friendship and your time. You’ve been giving people gifts your whole life when you didn’t even know it.
So now is the time to get back some of what you have given. All the bounty coming your way will be varied. Maybe someone will give you some friendly advice. Maybe you will get an amazing idea that will inspire you to create something. Maybe someone will offer to make you dinner. Whatever gifts are coming your way, we sincerely hope that are open having them because you really deserve it.
We love you.
