An advanced Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you had a splendid weekend. As for me, I had a much needed time-out of life and I rested all of Saturday. It was very hard for me not to do anything on Saturday but rest. My body didn't have the strength that my brain was pushing my body to do. I surrendered completely to my body's needs and slept all of Saturday. Sometimes this is needed in order to recharge. Sometimes too, you don't even realize how drained or tired you are until "rest time" is ordered. Always heed your body's call for rest.
This is the month of love and I feel the love buzzing all around me. For this week's 3-card reading and in honor of Valentine's Day, I used Doreen Virtue's Romance Angel Oracle Cards.
Card 1 represents the "past." The past is represented by Religious Factors - Your love life is influenced by your religious upbringing and spiritual path.
Message from the angels: "Dear one, please realize that the concept of religion is for earth purposes only. God is love and love knows no boundaries, love just is. You have learned to accept the way God works in mysterious ways. You already know that what you wish for, won't always come in the form you expect. Therefore, you have learned to put out to the universe your wishes without any expectations and so far this has been working for you. You have merged yourself with your higher self. Yet the ego feels threatened. Your task now is to find balance between the two. It doesn't happen over night but your faith in God and most of all your faith in yourself will guide you in the right direction. Keep moving forward and remember to release all expectations so you can be present in love and maintain inner peace."
Card 2 represents the "present." The present is represented by Express Your Love - Go ahead and make the romantic gesture.
Message from the angels: "No one or nothing can hurt you. You are completely protected, healed and loved. The only one at this point getting in the way of your happiness is you. This time is a true test of your love and faith in yourself. Go ahead and show yourself and all of your relationships the love you wish to show. It's essential to who you are, in giving your best. Remember that true love when given, is given without expecting it to be reciprocated. If you expect the love you give to be reciprocated, that is not love, that is a business transaction. Please know the difference. When you give of yourself, it is because of your innate nature to be the loving and authentic human being you are meant to be. No one is going to take advantage of you, you already know what you want and you know what you deserve. Ask yourself this: "Does this individual deserve the love I give?" Take careful notice of your heart chakra and your gut - if they're in sync, then go forward."
Card 3 (next 3 weeks) represents the "future." The future is represented by New Love - A new person has stirred your romantic feelings.
Message from the angels: "Bravo beautiful one, you have mastered the balance of your heart chakra and your gut. You know who and what you want in your life. You are attracting the right people and opportunities in your life. Maintain focus on yourself and always putting yourself first especially in love. That way you set the tone for all of your relationships, when they see you putting yourself first, you also become a priority in others' lives. Expecting no more or no less that what you know you deserve. Remember that you always set the tone and example in any and all of your relationships. This is a time to voice your wants and needs and decipher who stays in your life and who goes. Be you and always be upfront with the other person."
Till next time, lovely, I bid you love, light and compassion.
