I hope you had a fantastic, if not, at least a peaceful weekend to yourself. I know there are a lot of us out there that have lost our mothers and special days like mother's day doesn't make it any easier. However, with our moms' spirits living in our hearts, we grow stronger every day and we honor her by doing so, by continuously living our lives as if she was still here. Life makes you appreciate the time you reminisce about her and you know that your time with mom was well spent.
I, for one, had a peaceful weekend - I spent Saturday with my loved ones in San Jose, California, where my brother Ray fed me his famous fish and chips (catfish and homemade fries) which I had 2-3 servings of; with shots of Tequila and a beer in between. I even got to take an hour nap waiting for the food to be ready! What a life! I went home that night full and I slept good too. Sunday morning, I did nothing but watch movies and ate whatever the hell I wanted because it was Mother's day - my day and I enjoyed it to the fullest.
Without further ado, this week's reading. This week's reading has been brought to you by Doreen Virtue's and James Van Praagh's Talking to Heaven cards.
Card 1 represents the "past." The past is represented by I have a new understanding.
Spirit reminds you that "everything happens for a reason" and whether you agree with it at the moment - it sucks but you will come to understand the reasons and its underlying meanings. But it isn't always about understanding why the Universe operates the way it does or why God has unique plans for each of us. It's about accepting the cycle of life which is so hard for the human spirit to fathom. All of these emotions that come with the heart break of loss is indeed "normal" as morbid as it sounds. However, you have survived so many other tragedies in your life, this one has made you stronger. You are a survivor.
Card 2 represents the "present." The present is represented by It was my time to go.
Living life without that loved one and you are doing the best you can - you should be proud of yourself! You have accepted that if that loved one was here, would you have continued with your plans to where it brought you to the blessings of today? Would you have made the decisions you made to bring you to today? NO. You are being reminded not to wait for a tragedy to happen, to live your dreams and to live out loud. Go on that trip, buy those shoes, splurge on food and most of all, do what makes you happy despite criticism - for those people aren't financing your trip, your shoes, your mortgage/rent, your meals and most of all they are not responsible for your happiness - YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN HAPPINESS!
Card 3 represents the "future." The future is represented by I have no more earthly worries.
Your loved ones are reminding you that you should have no worries or guilt surrounding their death. In fact, please see their death as a new beginning - that this cycle of life is needed for their soul to evolve. Their earth bodies could no longer hold their strong spirits. Our deceased loves are now here help you in your next phase in your life. These spirits' chapters have been closed, their time here on earth is over and they must guard and assist other human beings in their spirit form. Our deceased loved ones have a newfound meaning to their lives and purpose in making each of us and our time here on earth meaningful and helpful until it is our turn to move on.
Till next time, I bid you love, light and compassion.
