First and foremost, today marks the 27th anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake that rocked from the Bay Area all the way down to the central coast. I remember that day as if it was yesterday, we were without power for 2-3 days, water supply was short and the local businesses got together to help the community in need in Salinas, California. That was also my due date. Alas, my beautiful baby boy did not arrive until 10 days after this date.
Speaking of my beautiful baby boy, he and his wonderful fiancée came out to visit out to me and spent their last night in California with me before returning home. I was happy and now I'm missing them. Goodbyes with my kids are always hard but I already look forward to the next time I see them - so I don't stay sad for long. Now onto this week's reading.
This week's 3-card general reading is brought to you by Doreen Virtue's Saints and Angels Oracle Cards.
Card 1 represents the "past." The past is represented by Sign from Above - Guardian Angel.
You are reminded that you should always pay attention to your surroundings and the signs left to you by your guardian angels as well as your deceased loved ones. If there is a song that comes up, please be very mindful of the words for they might be the answers to your questions. Or perhaps you see feathers, numbers 111 or 222 or 333 or pennies or even dimes - these are reminders that you are not alone.
Message from your guardian angel: "You were never alone, from the moment you were born into this world. We have already met before your soul incorporated the body you currently possess. Your soul already knows what lessons are needed to succeed in this lifetime. Once you succeed in this lifetime, you will move onto the next dimension of your soul's journey. Otherwise, if the lesson is not learned in this lifetime, you will continue to live many lives on this earth and in this dimension until you learn what you came here to learn. You are guided and you are protected."
Card 2 represents the "present." The present is Love - God.
Of course, love is God and God is love! You are loved and always have been. Even when you felt physically alone. God didn't take anything away from you. God only helps us with our journey by meeting certain people, showing us the true reflections of ourselves through these people and our experiences. Your life is not a struggle if you choose to look at it through the eyes of loves, through God's eyes.
Message from God: "My child, you are loved and I have always loved you. I am not here to hurt or harm you in any way. The human nature is very complicated and full of emotions that which all relates to the grand design of the world and your soul's journey. When someone leaves your life, it is their time to go and your time to grow. Know that when you reflect on the past, you have always survived whatever life has dealt you and know that you have always grown stronger and enjoyed life fully. I love you and I only want the best for you."
Card 3 represents the "future." The future is Learning Experience - Guardian Angel.
Try something new, before you automatically go into self-blame mode which I know hasn't work for you in the past let alone will it work for you now - try this ask yourself: 'what is it that I needed to learn about this situation or myself?' Close your eyes, meditate and the answer will come to you when you least expect it. Remember that when someone seems standoffish with you or has a bit of an attitude, try to be more compassionate as their personal life is clashing with their professional life and they feel out of control. With a situation, I wouldn't worry too much of the future because living in the moment, being in the present is the best feeling in the world.
Message from your guardian angel: "Please continue to enjoy the moment, be present in the 'now.' The future hasn't happened and it is useless fighting what you are feeling and please continue to ask us for help in keeping your vibrations high and thoughts positive. Please don't worry - all will work out as needed. You will grow, change for the better, become stronger and smarter. You are already great, you will continue to be a blessing and life will only continue to get better. We love you, it's ok to have fun, let go and love yourself."
